Tim hoittii litis a peculiar wny of titling
things. At a recent fair in lied Itlver
county, Texas, they opened tlio fair by
tv procession with a triumphal ear, con
taining a young lady to represent every
Btnte In the Union. Pennsylvania was
represented by Mrs. Hell Devor, former
ly of this county. The fair wound up
with n light between a hear and eight
dogs, bruin whipping the whole lot.
Tim? Ho run has passed tlio Silver bill
by a large majority. This bill makes the
silver dollar, though worth four cents
less than a greenback dollar and six
cents less than a gold dollar, a legal
tender for all debts. It Is a pity that
legislation upon financial matters could
not lc placed on a body of men who had
some knowledge of tlio subject. As a
general thing politicians and lawyers are
poor financiers except in so far ns caring
for their individual interest is concerned.
They make a great hue and cry ttbout
the " dollar of our daddies," but if they
only had some of the cmo of tlulr dad
dies the people generally would have a
chanco to handle more dollars. This
continual tinkering at the finances up
sets every one's calculations-and lias a
tendency to keep all business at a stand
If Congress, after passing the appro
priation bills, would njourn with a guar
antee that It would not con veno again
for two years, we believe tho money
troubles would lie settled by tlio people,
in a satisfactory manner.
On Tuesday last elections wcro held
in twelve states. New York, New Jer
sey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minne
sota, Mississippi, Virginia and Wiscon
sin elected State officers and legislatures.
Massachusetts, Mississippi and Wiscon
sin also voted upon proposed Constitu
tional Amendments. Kansas, Nebraska,
and Pennsylvania elected Btato officers,
but not members of the Legislature.
Connecticut elected State Senators and
Representatives and county sheriff1.
Pennsylvania has given a Democratic
majority on the whole State ticket of
from 5 to 0,000.
New Jersey has gone Democratic, Gen
eral McClellan being elected Governor
by about 0,000.
Maryland has also gone Democratic
by probably 25,000 majority.
In Connecticut the result favors the
Republicans. The Legislature chosen
will possibly elect a United States Sen
ator to succeed Senator Barnum.
In Virginia and Mississippi no Repub
lican ticket was run, and of course the
Democrats had it all their own way.
Massachusetts re-leets Gov. Rice, by
an increased Republican majority of
about 10,000 over the vote of last year.
In Minnesota the Democrat and
Greenback parties united but the Repub
licans carry the State over both tho fu
sion and the Prohibitory ticket.
New York elects the Democratic State
ticket by about 15,000. ' The Legislature
will be Republican by a small majority.
Wisconsin goes Republican by about
5,000. The Greenbfickers, in that State
cast about 30,000 votes.
Nebraska goes Republican by 4,000 or

Rather an Unpleasant Test.
A party a few daysslnco left New York
to test a lire extinguisher, and had sing
ular experience. The steamer Thomas
Hunt, with about fifty persons, left Tier
10, East river, at noon, and proceeded to
Prince's bay, Staten Island, where the
extinguishers aro manufactured. At this
point an abandoned canal boat was to
be used for the experiments. The hold
of tho boat was partitioned off' into sec
tions, one of which was filled with com
bustible material. To make sure of a
hot fire, two barrels of petroleum were
poured into tho section by over-zealous
workmen. Tho extinguishing apparatus
being arranged, a torch was lighted and
thrust Into the hole. The petroleum ex
ploded Instantly, blowing the old canal
boat into a thousand pieces. Some thirty
persons were standing upon the boat,
and, singularly enough, only two were
injured. They were James Qulnn, a
laborer, who was cut about the head
and his legs badly brulsed,and a reporter
for the World, who received a severe
gash on the chiu.
The lire extinguishing apparatus con
sists of iron cylinders charged with liq
uified carbonic acid gas. Ah oil tank
was set on fire, and the flames almost
Inntnntly extinguished. It 1 propoH.
ed to give another trial of It at an early
day, when thoRe Interested will iiave a
bettor chance to Jtidne of Its merits.

One Flash of Lightning.
The town of Rlchnrtlsou and vicinity
wns visited by a severe lightning storm
Sunday evening a week. A Mr. Stone,
living one and a half miles from town,
fearing that tho lightning might strike
his hoiist!, grasped his llttlo boy in his
arms and called to his wife to follow,
started to a hole ting In tlio ground nnd
covered, about ono hundred yards from
tho resldeneo. They had got about half
way, when a bolt struck tho father nnd
child, killing them Instantly.1 Mrs.
Stone wns thrown several yards, nnd
lay for toino time Insensible. Tlio shoes
and clothing on Stone and his child
wcro literally torn into shreds. Gritim-
Dilomtna of a Tramp.
A tramp, who dried to steal a rldo
from Cheyenne, Wyoming, to (Ireen
river, on tlio top of one of Jarrett &
Palmer's cars recently, had a terrible
experience. Tho rapid motion of tho
car compelled him to wind his arms
and legs round a stove pipe, and hnng
on for dear life, and his coat and hat
were carried away by the force of tho
wind. Tlio burning-cinders pierced his
clothes llko bullets, and cut and scorch
ed ills hands and face, so that, when ho
reached Green river, tlio terror, exhaus
tion and pain had made his hair turn
til' In Alabama two white penitentia
ry convicts escaped from Mr. J. W.
Coiner about two weeks since in a sin
gular way. On of them had been given
some arsenic to put upon a fistula on a
horse's neck. Instead of putting it
there, however, be put it in ills pocket,
and when he and his comrade got the
chance to run away they threw down
on their tracks pieces of meat on which
tills arsenic was sprinkled. As the dogs
would como upon the meat they devour
ed it, of course, all the dogs in conse
quence soon got sick and quit tlio drive.
Two of them havo died. Tlio convicts
thus fur havo eluded capture, and Mr.
Andrew Johnson, Mr. Comer's agent,
who went in pursuit of them Immedi
ately upon their escape, has not slnco
been heard from.
t'iT A farmer in Chester county, I'a.,
prosecuted three hunters for trespassing
on his premises, for which they were
fined. Tho retaliated on him by telling
him they would give him thirty days'
time to remove all tlio noxious weeds
from ofr his farm, and, in enso he did
not, they would Institute suit against
him for a violation of a special law for
Chester county, which is punishable
with a fine of $50. The farmer, taking
tho hint, has four men busily engaged
in cutting and pulling weeds.
