Postmaster Joseph C. Thompson,
of Quiney, died Sunday. Judge
Thompson was one of the sturdy
figures of the time in Adams county.
He was constant to his party plat
form as the needle to the pole, and
for 80 years and more had been dis
tinguished for more or less activity
in democracy's interest. As countv
judge he was a monument of integ
rity and probity. Appointed post
master by President Cleveland only
three months ago, he had taken up
the work of the oflice with zeal and
merit and its operations were con
ducted in a satisfactory and business
like way. At the request of his
bondsmen, C. M. Gilmer will act as

Henry M. Stanle contributes to

"The American Girl at College,"

The author, herself a voting monian,
has visited all the rrincipal institu

presents in a bright and appreciative

otherwise be acquired only with dif-

of the different irstitutinns their
courses of studv, the relative ex

subject are treated briefly bnt fully.
Worthington's magazine for Sep

unerring certaintj from their winter

of the seal, and the methods of selec
ting and dispatching the "killa

he will convince Lis readers, of the
evils of pelagic sealing, which by its
indiscriminate and wasteful slaugh
ter is calculated ti deplete the herds,
until the islands of the Behring sea
are as barren of seals as are those of
the Antarctic oeean. Mr. Brown
made good use of the rare opportu
nities for photogiaphy and the large
number of illustrations which accom
pany the article ore reproduced from
his pictures. A second article from
his pen upon the habits and
customs of th( natives of the
island will appear in the Oc
tober number. The young peo
ple and the l.ttle ones of the
household always receive much con
sideration from the editors of Worth
ington's Magazine, and they will find
the September number bright with
stories and poems just suited to their
taste. The short stories for their
elders are deligl tfully written and
selected with a view to variety both
in subject and manner of literary
treatment. Taken all around .the
Worthingtan's Magazine for Septem

and needs of the American family,

Some Brilliant Sword Strokes.
Elephants are c ompletely disabled by
one blow from tae Arab's two handed
Bword, which almost severs the huge
hind leg, biting d sep into the bone. This
feat is varied by flashing off the trunk,
leaving it dangling only by a piece of
skin. A ghoorka has been Been by the
lato Laurence Oliphant to behead a buf
falo with a singh) blow of his cookrie.
And Sir Samuel Baker, a man powerful
enough to wield during his African ex
ploration the "biiby," an elephant rifle
weighing 22 pon ads, once clove a wild
bear with his big hunting knife almost
in halves as it was making a final rush,
catching it just behind the shoulder
where the hide and bristles are at least
a span thick. Sir Walter Scott relates
how the Earl of Angus, with his huge
sweeping brand, challenged an opponent
to fight and at a blow chopped asunder
his thighbone, killing him on the spot.
There is a story current in Australia
that a Lienteni.nt Anderson in 1852,
during an encot nter with bushrangers,
cut clean through the gun barrel of his
adversary with Lis sword. And at Kas
sassin it is reltted that one of Arabi
Pasha's soldiers was severed in two dur
ing the midnig'it charge. But in the
opinion of experrs this is very improba
ble, even had tho new regulation saber
then been in use. London Globe.
German ard Ilnglish Weavers.
Mr. D. F. Sc-hl 088 gives the following
instructive contrast between English and
German weavers: The well fed English
weaver can without difficulty look after
four looms and can with the aid of a ju
venile assistant ("tenter") manage as
many as six. Put, as Dr. von Schulze
Gaevernitz tells as, notwithstanding that
the continental manufacturers run their
looms from 20 to 30 per cent slower than
ours are worked, in Mulhouse and in
Switzerland eaoh weaver can only tend
three, and in Germany you will seldom
see a weaver ab e to tend more than two
looms. The effect of the superiority of
the English operatives upon the cost of
production is shown by the fact that, al
though the rate of remuneration of our
English weaver? is abont 100 per cent
higher than that received by the Swiss
and German "hands," yet we are able to
turn out cotton cloth at a labor cost dis
tinctly lower than that which obtains in
Switzerland and Germany, London Letter.
Pluiuhera Resent a Joke,
At the first session of the national con
rention of master plumbers, held in I
Milwaukee recently, Major iliddleton,
one of the delegates, before the session
opened hung some decorations on th3

Catarrh Causes it Stop
Mr. Peterson's case illustrates the
danger of allowing these troubles to
run on, and should he carefully read
A very large er cent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears.
Manv of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Scott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing ol or dulled from ca
tarrhal extension. It is folly to wait
for a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't get well, but always
gets worse, until frequently the hear
ing is entirely deMroyetl. A thor
ough course t.f treatment with a ca
pable specialist, who goes right at
the cause of the trouble un:l removes
it, is the only hope.
