What is called ''new process"
butter appears to be made from
rancid butter, which having been
deprived of its rancidity by the use
of chemicals is then freshened by
boiling it in sour milk. A quality
of butter is thus produced which
goes almost unchallenged by the
usual tests. It is very hard to pre
vent its sale by any ordinary
methods of inspection. The sales
of oleomargarine, process butter
and other imitations of the standard
production of the dairy ought to
result in a closer business between
the producer and the consumer.
The fixers-up of patented substi
tutes and other go-betweens should
as far as possible be eliminated, not
only in the interest of those who
eat butter and make it, but as a
matter of hygienic precaution and
FOUND $59,000 IN A BUREAU.
Browor Left His Family Prepared tor an
DRAWER FILLED WITH MONEY.
When an old bureau at the home of
John Arnold, a millionaire brewer,
who died at Hazieton, was opened
incidentally last week there was dis
closed a snug fortune in ready cash
whose existence was unknown to the
A member of the family was mak
ing a search for some documents per
taining to the brewer's estate, and
drew out a bureau drawer in the hope
that her search might end there. For
an instant she was unwilling to be
lieve her eves were not deceiving her.
Tucked away in the drawer were
packages of greenbacks and bank
bills, held down by heavy bags, out of
which, when they were opened, rolled
gold and silver coin.
When the family tecovered from
their surprise they summoned H. W.
Jacobs, who was Mr. Arnold's confi
dential book-keeper. Mr. Jacobs
thumbed over the paper money and
counted the coin out in piles, and
found that the contents of the bureau
drawer footed up $59,000. He carried
the money to the bank and deposited
it to the credit of the estate. It is
supposed Mr. Arnold secreted the
money at his house to be prepared for
any immediate emergency.
The find was a surprise to every
one connected with the family, as Mr.
Arnold was never known to keep any
large amount of money in the house.
Mr. Jacobs, however, remembers Mr.
Arnold telling him some time ago
that if ever anything occurred he
should look in this bureau drawer,
but he had forgotten all about it and
never expected to unearth any money.
An order was granted on Thursday
of last week for the sale of the Natalie
Anthracite Coal Company lands
located in Columbia and Northumber
land Counties. There are 2700 acres
in the tract valued at about $4,000,-
000. It will be sold by the receivers.

SHOT AT OENTRALIA.
Monday afternoon a ve.y sad shoot
ing affair took place in Centralia in
which John Pet r os was the victim.
Mr. Petros who has been living at
Logan was engaged in moving his
effects to Centralia. In one of the
drawers of the bureau was a revolver
which he took out and laid on the
table. While he was engaged with
others in taking the furniture from
the wagon into the house, a boy aged
about fourteen seeing the revolver
picked it up and began pressing the
trigger when it was discharged just as
Mr. Petros was passing. The ball
entered the stomach inflicting a
dangerous and probably a fatal wound.
The unfortunate man was-taken to the
State Hospital at Fountain Spring.
He is some what improved, but is
not out of danger. He has suffered
the loss of much blood. He exoner
ates the boy from blame and does not
want him prosecuted as the shooting
was unintentional.— Ashland Local.

A decision was reached in court

Barre Athletic Park, and no doubt
will have a bearing on other parks
in this Commonwealth. The case
is entitled borough of Dorranceton

ment not sustained because, First,
the ordinance does not fix the maxi
mum limit to the fine which is
unreasonable, that may be imposed
for its violation. Second, the ordi
nance is invalid because there is
no act of Assembly authorizing a
borough to impose a license and
enforce the collection of the same

lessee of a private park where the
game of base ball is played. Judg
