The fire that burned Mr. John
' Weaver's barn was caused by the burst
ing of a lantern, which, at the time was
hanging up. The fire mostly went over
Mr. Weaver's head, but a little of the

in his shirt. It was with much difficul
ty that the horses were got out in time
to save them.

How Is It ? Two years ago -Messrs. M.
& T. Miller received samples of smooth
and bearded wheat from the Agricultural
Department, which they carefully sowed
in separate places, keeping the seed in
different bags. This season both lots
were again sowed and both are bearded.
They and many other farmers would
like to have the matter explained.
Look Out for Them. Tho traveling
"patent frauds" are again in this county.
They manage to get a note that you
think is an agreement, or in some other
manner to swindle you. They then sell
the note and you have no redress. They
recently swindled Mr. Dalton, of Sandy
Hill out of nearly $300. . That time they
were selling washing machines. Now
they are selling his note.
y Detectives and Missionaries are sadly
needed in Buffalo and Howe townships.
Not a week passes that several cases of
stealing are not reported. On Saturday
night a week, John Potter's barn was
entered and grain was stolen. On Mon
day night Barkey's grist mill was reliev
ed of some grain and Siler's grocery of
some small articles.
Wednesday night Jacob Buck received
a visit from the scamps and lost a lot of
meat, and several other persons had sim
ilar visits. As our correspondent says :
" It seems as though the Devil was let
loose and had located himself in this
end of Perry county."
The Fire Cracker Nuisance. In many
places laws have been passed prohibiting
the use of fire crackers. They are dan
gerous, as well as a nuisance and should
be abated. TheGermantown Telegraph
states that " statistics show that during
the past twelve years about $1,500,000
worth of fire crackers have been im
ported into this country, and the loss by
only two conflagrations, known to have
originated with these dangerous articles,
amounted to over $15,000,000. It is be
lieved that every dollar's worth of these
explosives imported occasions $100 worth
.War on Main Street. The young man
Harry Reynolds, seems bound to keep
himself before the public. Last Thurs
day evening he stopped into Mr. Henry
Bentzel's, and calling him back for a
confidential interview began making
some statements that aroused the ire of
the old man. Mr. B., made a grab for
his gun, and went for the young man,
who "lighted out" and went up around
the corner at a 2.40 speed, soon leaving
Henry far in the rear. The -war was
lively for a few moments, but no blood
was spilled, though they both no doubt
shed considerable perspiration, as the
evening was warm, and the excitement
was great. At last accounts all
quiet along the line.
Caught by a Peg. A Lancaster county
exchange says that a farmer of that
county recently caught a thief in a nov
el manner. He had a crib full of corn,
and he recently noticed the bulk was
slowly but surely diminishing. Believ
ing that he was the victim of thieves,
his suspicion was aroused towards a cer
tian colored individual but for want of
positive proof he was unable "to put
the thing" down on his sable neighbor
until he hit upon the following plan for
his detection. He went to his crib and
selecting a number of ears of corn made
an equal number of wooden pegs. On
all these pegs ho wrote his namo and
then drove them into the end of the cob.
This prepared corn was thrown Into
the crib among the rest, and he waited
patiently for the party who had visited
him before. A few mornings thereafter,
the farmer noticed that more of his corn
was missing. Says theExamlner : "The
farmer whose name is John Hart, then
proceeded to the office of Jacob Reese,
Justice of thePeace,and made complaint
against Wm. Green. Constable David
Creamer, armed with a warrant for
Green's arrest and one to search' his
property, visited him and found him
feeding his horse. He had just given
him some corn, which he said was the
last he had, but the constable asked him
to walk to the house with him and they
proceeded to look around there.
Up stairs behind a bed, was found a
bag nearly filled with corn, which was
turned out upon the floor. William said
itwashisown corn, and, feeling sure
they could not find out where It belong,
ed, was quite unconcerned. Mr. Hart
.examined a few ears and finally found
one which he had fixed with the pegs.
He pulled out the peg and showed It to
the astonished William, and that settled
it. William said he would have to go
right to the stable, gear his horse and go
to work. The constable said ho was not
through with him, and accordingly he
was arrested. He had a hearing before
Justice Reese, who committed the corn
dodger to prison in default of bail, to
await a trial at court.
A Swindle Exposed. For some weeks
past, vague rumors have been circulated
in this community regarding a nefarious
swindle that was being perpetrated.
These rumors have now assumed some
positive shape and will no doubt as the
details and facts become known make a
decided sensation in this county. It
appears that a number of persons have
been quietly informed that an over issue
of money had been made by persons
connected with the Treasury depart
ment at Washington, and that the aid
of discreet persons, was needed to get it
into circulation. They were told that
by investing $100, or any larger amount
they would receive double the amount
in this fraudulent issue. Themonywas
paid to a confederate at Harrisburg, and
tho package purporting to be the stolen
money was placed in the hands of the
victim. This when opened was found
to contain old paper cut in the shape of
of bills, or some other equally worthless
stuff. We have a list of quite a number
of persons, some resident in this county,
and some in Juniata who were willing
to share in the stolen money, but we
withhold the names for the present,
until the matter can he further investi
gated, and till the list is more complete.
Among the names we notice many who
have stood high in the estimation of the
people, and from whom better things
could have been expected. -
Special and Orphan's Court. At the Or
phan's Court held here last week the
following cases were tried. A jury had
been drawn at last court, for the purpose
of trying the cases.
George Cary Tharpe, Administrator of
George Snyder, dee'd. vs. Henry Snyder
and Henry C. Snyder late partners trad
ing as H. Snyder & Co. Some few years
ago, George Snyder who was then living
in the borough of Liverpool, owned a
steam tannery, and the said tannery was
rented and the business was carried on
by Henry Snyder a brother, and Henry
C. Snyder a son of the deceased. From
the books of the deceased the adminis
trator claimed a balance in favor of the
estate to a considerable amount and this
action was brought to recover the sum
claimed. It was claimed on the other
side that the said estate was indebted to
the said firm. Verdict in favor of the
defendant for $1,812.14. Barnett for
Plaintiff. Sponsler and Junkin for De
fendant. George Cary Tharpe Administrator
of George Snyder, dee'd., vs. Henry
Snyder. This action was brought to re
cover an individual account amounting
to about $800 from defendant which
plaintiff alleged, from the books was due
to said George Snyder's estate, for
money advanced during the lifetime of
said decedent and also for rent of
farming property in the borough of Liv
erpool. The defendant claimed that the
estate was indebted to him. Verdict in
favor of the defendant for $G00. Barnett
for Plaintiff. Sponsler and Junkin for
A considerable amount of other mis
cellaneous business was disposed of. The
court adjourned on Friday at noon, to
meet again on the 12th day of July next.
Bleedina at the Nose. The best remedv
for bleeding at the nose, as triven bv Dr.
Gleason, in one of his lectures, is a vig
orous motion of the jaws as if in the act
of mastication. In the case of a child a
wad of paper should be placed in its
moutn, and the child instructed to chew
it hard. Of course an adult doe3 not
need the wad. It is the motion of fh
jaws that stops the flow of blood. This
remedy is so very simple that many will
feel inclined to laugh at it, but it has
never been known to fail in a sinr-le in
stance, even in very severe cases.

VAn Exciting Run Off. On Wednesday
morning William Kough, Jr., and B.
M. Eby drove the former's high-spirited
horse, " Doll," hitched toalight'trotting
kuggy. up to the upper fishery, and
shortly after starting on the return trip
home a westward bound freight came
along and at the same time Pacific ex
press east shot by throwing off a power
ful surplus of steam, which frightened
the horse beyond control, and while Mr.
Kough was holding to the reins with all
his strength the bridle bit broke in two,
when the horse, free from' restraint, shot
fthead like lightning. The publio road,
which is exceedingly narrow just here,
lies right up against the railroad track,
while on tho lower side of the road a
bank several feet In height forms the
line. With telegraph poles to the right
of them and this bank on helr left, a
wholesale smashup with results only to
be conjectured was bound to follow.
However they escaped being run Up the
bank and rolled out by the buggy turn
ing over only to strike a telegraph pole
at the other side, sending both occupants
different directions with all sails spread
out on to the hard ground where they
stopped suddenly, with a heavy thud.
The horse became disengaged from the
vehicle and ran to town before he was
caught. The gentlemen in the buggy
received unimportant scratches, but
their lives might have paid the forfeit
Just as readily. News.

lingsford was found dead In bed in her
father's house near McAlisterviile. A
jury was summoned, and an inquest
lield, which resulted in pronouncing
that death was caused by the use of
Aconite Wolfs bane which the
young lady had used to stop toothache.
A phial of the poison was found in her
room. A spot on the inside of her cheek
opposite the aching tooth, was burned
by the poison. The conjecture is that
some of the poison found its way to her
stomach and produced death. Sentinel.
Cumberland County. We copy the fol

Minnie Killinger, aged seven years,
and a soldier's orphan at the White Hall
school, this county, was fatally scalded
on Saturday morning last, by falling
backward into a tub of hot water, which
was being used for scrubbing purposes.

A little daughter of Mr. David C.
Sellers, of Monroe township, while re
turning from an errand to a Churehtown
store was attacked by a tramp, who tore
her bonnet from her head and cut off
her hair, which she had Tianglng down
her back. The little girl, not giving the
alarm immediately, allowed the tramp
to escape. Such barbarism as this should
be ferreted out by all possible means,and
the offenders made to sutler a3 far as the
law will permit.
Just as we are ready to go to pres news
reaches us that the house of Mr. John
Wolf, in North Middleton township, 3

caped with her life. The fire is supposed
to have originated from kindling a fire

mom. Great sympathy is felt for Mr.
Wolf in his unhappy loss. Volunteer.
A cowardly, dastardly attempt was
made by some wretch to wreck the Car
lisle accommodation train west, on the
C. V. R. It., on Friday evening, at a
point near the Dlllsburg Junction.
Heavy sticks of cord-wood had been
piled up on the track, with no other evi
dent intention than that of wrecking the
train. Fortunately the obstruction was
seen a moment before it was struck, and
the speed of the train was lessened a lit
tle by the action of the air brakes before
the shock came. The passengers were
well shaken as the locomotive struck the
obstruction, but, it gives us great pleas
ure to say, no one was hurt In the least.
Two heavy pieces of wood passed under
the pilot of the engine and, becoming
jammed between it and one of the pony
wheels, was slid along the track a con
siderable distance, raising the wheel off
the truck. The obstruction was soon re
moved and everybody felt much relieved.
