The fare from here for the round trip is 91.50. A remarkable case of longevity is reported to us, in the person of the father of Peter Conael who resides in the township of Brockway. He is said to have attained to the extreme age of UC years. The old gentleman is a highland Scotchman, can not sprak any other language than his na tive O.-elic, is quite harty, and does the chores round the farm of his ?o?i Peter with whom he resides. Brock way must be a healthy town. An Amoraas Bceadjek Clrea Away. Towaros durk, a few evenings ago, a low sized beauty from the west country, was seen loitering around the school house eomers, as if looking for something lost. By a remarkable coincidence a ton buggy arrived on the scene, the driver of which seemed as if he also was looking for something lost. A similarity of occupations no doubt, soon ripened into warmer relation, as our sheroine and her gay Lothario were soon making rapid eed, as if in desperate hurry, towards the writ. A wide-awake citizen happening on the bridge at the time espied the rig coming dDwu the hill as if th DAI was after them, and thinking the brldga was unsafe for such furious driving, brought the business to a halt, whnn, lo and behold, we wont tell this time but look out how you go that road again my mau OUR MANUFACTORIES. An article which appeared in the 1st No. of the Expositor, suggesting the forming of an association of tho busi ness men of the place for united action in securing certain adrantsces tending t the welfare ami substantial growth of our village, is well worthy the earnest consideration of every citizen who desires to prosper und see others prosper. It has suggested many thoughts to the writer as to what are the best means to securr that end. The old song is true that it takes peo ple to make a town, but the kiud of town depends a gA deal upon the kind of people. It may be a rather Utopian idea, but nevertheless until the principle is recognized and acted upon, we will see very little substan tial growth, that is, the selfishness dis played in many ways will have to be directed into channels that will result in general good. Not tlnt we are dis posed to find fault with any one in particular but we should all be willing to learn by experience. It is admitted by all, and in some places the impor tance of manutacturing institutious is so much valued that a bonus Is offered for their introduction, and yet we have a very valuable establishment here, and which would add much to the material growth of the town under favorable tircumstancus, yet is lan guishing n consequence of keen com petition by wealthier establishments elsewhere. We have flour mills man ufacturing upon whose existence a large portion of the trade of the place depends, and yet they are forced to compete with foreign production. We have merchants, mechanics, agents and shops of various kinds all helping and depending on each other for their very existence and vet notwithstand ing this mutual relation to each other, some of our citizens are ahort-aighted enough' to help support and build up other places, forgetting in the mean time that every dollar spent in that way just takes that much away from your neighbor, npon whom yoar own welfare more or less depends. More again, Ckx. WHO WILL BE THE FIRST. Over 100 new loxes to let at the poet-otfioe. Save yourself timo and trouble, also keep the post-mastar from getting vexed by securing a, box. RUX.K3 OF A POST-OFFICE. 1 Please ask the p. m. to lick your stamps, s If the Postal Clerk Is in the office please call him on the other side of the store and ask it there is any mail for the Watses. 3 Do not offer to pay for your stamps until you take time to put them on, as the clerk s time is of but little value when busy. 4 Never bring in your mail until the mail bai: is closed, because the p. m. is very fond of opening the pouch after It is locked. S If at any time you should not iret your letters when ex pected. then tell the clerk to look and see for this is cunning. 6 If there is any more than twelve children In your family, please do not let them all call for mail in the same day.
