Clawson's injuries consist of a gash on the head, a compound fracture of the light thigh and coi.tusions of the body. Here is a straight tip from the news paper called Bruin: "There's only one right way to advertise and that is to ham mer your name, your location, and your business so constantly, so insistently and so thoroughly into the people's heads that if they walk in their sleep they will in stinctively turn their steps toward your store." At DuHois, Wednesday, wnile Mrs. William 11 imes was washing, her li-year-old daughter made a sudden attempt to got out of her road, when she fell back ward into a boiler of boiling water. The motner snatched the child as quickly as she could, but the hot water had done its fatal work. The flesh was so thoroughly cooked that chunks of it fell from the child's arms. Centre county grand juries aro not to be trifled with. At the last court, in three cases relumed, the grand jury directed that iu one the costs be saddled upon the justice of the peace before whom the pre liminary hearing was conducted; ii: an other, that the district attorney be respon sible for the costs, at.d it the third that the costs be paid by the prosecutor. The one with reference to thedistrict attorney will not stand, so lawyers say. The $i-tentific 4 m.-rioin prints this cure for diphtheria: At the first indica tions of diphtheria in the throat of a child, make the room close, then take a tin cup and pour into it au equal quantity of tar and turpentine; men hold the cuo over a tire so as to till the room with the fumes. The patient on inhaling the fumes will spit tip the membraneous matter and the diphtheria will pass off. The fume- of the t ir and turpentine loosen the film in throat and affoid relief." Some miscreant forced an entrance into t he court house at Itellefonte at an early hour on Monday morning, and after atnrating the doors leading to the court room above with kerosene, set lire to them. The flames were discovered by the time they had burned a bole in the corner of the room, and were put out. The building is but slightly damaged. It is generally be lieved that the act was that of some one desirous of destroying the ballots stored in the vaults, so as to stop the contest for sheriff now under way in the county. Charles Willis a colored laborer. w;is knocked into a blazing coal fire and pin ioned beneath several tons of earth until roasted to death by the caving in of a dug out used as a temporary habitation bv railroad construction nieii at Culmerville, on the Huller and I'ittsburg railroad, Sat urday night. Itennett, who was also caught under the roof, escaped w ith a broken leg. Willis lived iu Virginia, but had been employed on the wharves and river boats about Pittsburg for over a year. He has a sister residing in Fairchance. Lock port correspondent Lewistown Gazette: We are informed by good respon sible parties that M iss Lilibie Aurand of Soring Run, has this fall ami winter cut twenty two cords of wood, cutting U e timber down in the wooks and ross-cut-ting it into cord wood length, and has also dug a well thirteen feet two and one half inches deep. This she did all herself, ex cept the cost of twenty-livei-ents for a man to hoist np some dirt from the bottom of well. She has also, with the aid of her father and mother, husked fifteen hundred bushels of corn ears.

He asserts lie w ill never bang. John (ienthner, of ISald Kagle town ship, Clinton county, a few days ago was tramping over the mountain in the Scook- tack region in qtiest of game when he saw a lear under a rock. The brave hunter approached in close quarters lo the animal, so close indeed that Mr. I'ruiu came out and swiped the man with bis paw. A scuffle ensued, but Mr. (ienthner fina'ly broke loose and, stepping back a few paces, up with his gun and ?ent two Shots into the bear S Ilea. . which killed him. The 1'ar is seven and half feet long and weighs .Vn pound-. The Pennsylvania railroad company has recently adopted anew design of water scoop, known as a balanced scoop, by which it is posible to take water while the train is ruuning at the rateofuior.il mi les an hour.

At 7u miles an hour it is now possible to till a :sm gal lon tender in ninu seconds. John Siyak, the Hungarian coke- worker of Ilecla, who on January 'JMi walked two miles in the snow to win a wager of ?." and a keg of beer, and who has been confined in the Westmoreland county hospital since with badly frozen feet, escaped from that in-titation Saturday morning by jumping from the socoi.d-story window. He was clad only in trousers and a thin shirt. He ran wildly through the streets of (Iieensburg for an hour before being captured. He hoard the physicians were going to amp-Hale his feet is given as'.heieason lie tried to get away. His feel were again frozen and he will likely iie. A remarkable story in connection w ith the death of David Uastress, of Findley township, Mercer county, has come to light. ISastress was a leading jeweler of Mercer and was in business in tint town in former days. He was very distrustful Of banks and the government and secretly converted all his earnings into gold, which he carefully secreted. Shortly before hi death he confided the secret of the hiding i. bice of his money to Dr. Yeagor, his phylician. Dr. longer followed the direc tions given by ISastress and unearthed two glass jari the weight of which was nearly forty pounds. The jars contained Jf.',Xl, which was turned over to the family.

IUrkI A Company, con tractors. It is thought that the road will be by March 1st. ready for the hauling of trains oyer It. The road is now completed and the tracks laid olh from Spangler and 1'atton to a point about four miles west of Pattou, where an extensive fill is being made. As scon a this is complete I and the Uacks counected it will be ready for operation. A correspondent of the Mapleton Item writing from Trough Creek, relates the following: While ;utting ice on S. Chil coit's dam last Saturday a good si.fd spider was noticed in one of the cakes about two and one-half inches from the under side. There was what looked like a bubble of about one and one-fourth inches in diameter around it. Some tim?s it would seem to move its legs, which was finally only concl'ided to be a notion. Hut W. L. Wright, who -'was housing the ice. thinking it would not be a nice thing in a glass of w ater next summer, concluded to cut a hole in it and take it out. I5ut he aidn't have to take it out, for as soon as it had room, to the surprise of all present, it crawled out without any assistance. Miss Annie Vogle, of Indiana, w hile on her way home from visiting a friend In that place on Friday night, was followed by a man who when close to her home clapped his hand over her mouth and told her if she made any outcry he would kill her. Siie pushed him away, called for help and struck him with her umbrella, scratching his face. The fellow finally ran away down a dark aKey. Miss Vogle ihen ran home and although badly frightened and her lip cut an 1 bleeding from a scratch from contact with the man's linger nails, w as not seriously hurt. Indiana papers say there is a well defined idea of the identity of the assailant but he has not been captured.

Ebensburg, Pa., Feb. S, Et. FiiKKMAx: Iu last week' Fkkk man I see that Mr. J. IS. Deunv held a meeting and passed a resolution declaring iu favor of improving the tow n by devoting w hat money the borough has at its dis posal to the construction of sewers and betterment of our streets and after that to ihe construction of an electric light plant. It would now be in order for Mr. E. R. Cresswell to hold a meeting and resolve to light the streets. A meeting thai no one knows anything about but the few that are invited, is not much of an index to public sentiment and should receive very little attention. As a citizen and taxpay er, but residing on a street that receives very little benefit for the taxes I pay, I am opposed to sewering one or two streets at the expense oT the town. Let each property holder, in front of w hose properly the the propoed sewer w ill pass, hold a meeting and pass a resolution to foot his share of the bill at so much per front foot as they do in other places. That kind of a meet ing will count for something and w ill not be an imposition on other people. And now, while writing, I wish to call the attention of the people of Ebensburg to one of the latest improvements at the peoples' expense, the public School build ing. It lias been built only three years and is now getting ready to tumble down. It was built by a "favorite" contractor, w ith no supervision, and at the time the work was being done people experienced in building, said it would not stand. The north wall is now giving away arid it will not be long until the building will be too dangerous for use. It is a disgraceful monument, though not a lasting one, to the directors who were intrusted by the people with the expendit ure of t heir money and the contractor who erected such a llimsy and dangerous structure, liable to prove a death trap to the school children of Ebensburg.

It w-as taken to town to C. S. Yaunear. of the Hotel Van near, yeslerday. It is of the large gray timber species, six feet one inch from nose to tail, three feet high, and weighs about one hundred and forty pounds. It was caught in a trap afier it had killed a numlier of sheep for the farmers of the neighborhood. Mr. Vannear will have it prepared by a taxi dermist and place it in a conspicuous place in the iiotel, says a dispatch from Somer set. There are many more of the kind In the same region, it is said, and have been very destructive to small stock and game during the late deep snows.
