LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER. MONDAY. MAY 10, 1880.
K a WITCHCBAFT AT EPIIBATA. A Dubious Story Frem a Dubious Source. A Reading correspondent of the Phila delphia Timet writes the following sensa tional story te that paper : Dr. Diller Luther, secretary of the state beard of charities, returned te his home in this city from Lancaster yesterday, in which place he brought suit against a number of persons en the charge of rob bing a grave. The defendants live in the small village of Ephrata, a Dunkard vil lage of Lancaster county. The principal of the accused is named Spanglcr. lie and his associates in the alleged crime are charged with having entered a vault and taken out a portion of the remains depos depes i xd therein. Three of the parties entered bail and will be n icd at the August term of court in Lant istcr. An old resident of Ephrata drove te this city te-day, from whom additional details were learned, lie says : "Things are very much mixed up ever there among these old Dunkaids. The fight is for the posses sion of the old property that was originally established by the brethern and sisters of the cloister. These old Seven-day Bap tists were a queer people', you knew ; were no buttons, but fastened their clothing with hooks and eyes : were their hair long, great bread rim black hat, and very plain, brown clothing. The sisters were plain and simple gowns, white caps and black pasteboard bonnets. They lived in a colony at Ephrata several hun dred years age. A number of the wooden buildings they erected are still standing and are in splendid condition, bidding fair te stand another century. There are sev eral hundred acres of excellent land con nected with the old cloister. The control of nil this property, it appeal's, has re cently changed hands and theie is a tight between the " ins" and the " outs" among these straight-laced people. The " outs" arc making an ell'eit te find some lest records. They have in vain scaiched the history of the cloister that was punted at Ephrata away back in the last century. It is in the German language. New, it is said, the i epert was started that a number of valuable records were buried with some of the old dead people in the vaults and that that of Dr. Luther's ancestor was net the only one in vaded and searched for old papers and titles. But this suit of the doctor's will clear up the mystery. I am sure that a number of startling things will be revealed. The men who weie arrested aietoe small te open a vault .simply through curiosity and mischief. I have even heard it inti mated that an old witch woman named Fisher, residing near Keiiiheldsville, net far from Ephrata, had something te de wish the rebing of the graves. 1 don't be lieve in witches.but there are plenty in that neighborhood who de. I will simply give you the story as it is repeated ever there. It is te the ellect that a number of old Diiiikards consulted this old witch woman about some lest records they were after. She went through a number of in cantations and strange movements at midnight, and finally told them te ransack a certain grave where the teceids would be found. Whether the paities that were arrested by Dr. Luther are the same ones thai went te the witch woman I cannot siy. Anether story is that the witch woman advised them te steal a ceitaiu skull, hang it under the eaves of a smoke house and wait until after the first thunder storm. The whereabouts of the lest records would then be revealed. New the facts are that a grave and vault were bieken open and a skull stolen therefiem, but whether it was done in accordance with the witch woman's advice I certainly don't knew. Just the ether day I heard of a young woman of that neighborhood who burned a lock of her hair in a graveyanl at night in order that she would dream of the liidimr place of a let of stolen jewelry. She had been told te de it by tiie old witch woman I refer te. Shu can make many of the people about there helieie most anything.'' ' UNKNOWN." I'dii ml Druu ncd at Columbia. The body of an unknown drowned nrin was found lying in the shallow water en top of the Columbia dam. opposite Head's fish battery, at neon yesterday. Deceased was about -1.1 yeais of age, e feet S inches in height, was bald, and were a light moustache. lie had en, when discovered by fishermen, a light blue striped check shirt, dark pants and new pair of gaiter shoes. An empty pocketbook was found in one of the pants pockets, and en the right arm were a few unintelligible India ink marks. There were no means of iden tification. Deputy Corener Frank sum moned a jury composed of Jehn T. Itich ards, (leerge W. Leitheiser, James Neally William Brady, Philip Seurbeer and Geerge Yeung, and they feuud that the man came te his death from being drowned. There were no marks of vie lence en the body.

A few weeks age, it will be remembered, the house of Christian Smith, sr., at Wil low Street was entered by thieves, who stele a considerable sum of money. On Friday night last another attempt was made te rob the house. A granddaughter of Mr. Smith was asleep in the house and she was awakened by the noise. Upen looking out of the window she saw two men at work trying te ejmjii one of the windows down stairs. She gave the alarm by blowing a horn, which brought several neighbors te the house, but before their arrival the burglars had lied. Te Succeed Jehn Hening. It has been agreed by the powers that be that te succeed Jehn Hertiug, prison in spector, resigned, the county commissioners shall elect Jacob L. Hoffmeier, who was for many years the clerk in that institu institu tien. Mr. II. is the father of the HolT HelT ineier brother, cabinet makers and furni ture dealers, and father-in-law of Jehn I. Ilartman. Festival. On Saturday eveuiug the " Sens and Daughters of Abraham," a society com posed of colored people of this city, held a festival in the A. M. church, en Market street. The attendance was large aud the order geed. ATTEMPTED INCENDIARISM. Knapp's Brewery Set en Fire. . Between 1 and 2 o'clock Sunday morning an attempt was made te burn Knapp's brewery en Locust Btreet, this city. Ad joining the brewery, which is a large, substantial brick structure, is a large frame shed and ice house. The ice house is double walled, and the interstices be tween the two walls are filled with shav ings. Near one corner of the building there is a small opening in the beards with which the building is covered, and into this opening the incendiary had stuffed a quantity of cotton waste, saturated with coal oil. Mrs. Brimmer, wife of An drew Brimmer, the pretzel baker, who lives near by, was the first te discover the fire and at once gave the alarm. Mr. Jehn Knapp, Mr. Kegel and the Messrs. Huber wcie seen en hand and without much diffi culty succeeded in extinguishing the flames, the less being trifling. Had the fire gained a very slight headway the re sult might have been disastrous, as the building lircd and ethers in the vicinity are located en such high ground that it is almost impossible te get from the city mains a supply of water sufficient te fur nish the iiie-cnginch. LOCAL TOBACCO MAUKLT. Operations During the Week Vast. Although a geed many buyers have been in town during the past week, no great amount of trade has been done se far as is known te the outside world. There arc rumors that quite a number of packings of 1871J have changed hands, but if this be se, the buyeis ami sellers alike are very close mouthed about the operations, and neither the amount of sales nor the prices paid have been made public. Of old tobacco, about :J00 cases of 1S78 are known te have been sold during the week en private terms. The young plants are growing finely, but in many places have been attacked by flies and numbeis of them hopelessly in jured. We hear of a few fields that have been already set out with early plants, but general planting will uet commence for a week or two at least and net se seen un less we should be blessed with a geed soak ing rain. The warm, dry weather has al most unfitted the soil for seeding, even if the plants were in readiness. S.ile et Stocks.

A large audience last night greeted Rev. Hume, the new pastor of the I'resbjlcrian Memeiial mission, who selected as a text the 1st and 2nd verses of the Oth chapter of 2nd Corinthians, from which he preached a veiy able and nppiepriatc ser mon. Mr. 11. is a pulpit orator of de cided ability. He speaks rapidly, but ar ticulates distinctly, and preaches entirely without notes. The impression created last night was very favorable. He will be absent until the 23d. when regular ser vices will be established. SKHleUS ACCIDENT. .11 rs. Cable Breaks a Leg. On Saturday afternoon Mrs. Charles Ga ble and sonic lady friends made a visit te the Conestoga near Woodward Hill ceme tery, for the purpose of gathering mess.

At the request of the members of the organ association, permission was given them te held a fair for the benefit of a new pipe organ, te be held next fall, the time te be hereafter announced. SAVE IIARIIOR IRON WORKS. f.ugiue Disabled AVages Reduced. On Tuesday last the piston of the large engine at the Safe Harber iron works was broken, compelling a suspension of opera tions. The works will probably resume en Wednesday. Owing te the heavy decline in the price of iron, the wages of puddlers have been reduced te $4.30 per ten. The price hcietoferc paid was $5. Baseball. The first game of baseball of the season came off en the Ironsides ground en Satur day afternoon, between a picked nine and the Ironsides club. The day was very warm and the attendance was therefore net as large as it otherwise would have been. The Ironsides appeared for the first time in their new and handsome uniforms and they defeated their opponents easily by the sierc of 1G te 0. Taken 111 en the Street. Rev. W. L.

We desire te call attention te FLATWARE, SPOON3, FORKS, In addition te a full stock et the celebrated Rogers Bre.'s goods, we have the exclusive sale in this city et the electro-plated ware et the Graham Manufacturing Company. These are the be t finished and most ;durable in the market, and in recommending them te the trade this company (whose representations are always reliable) claim ler them the following merits: The base of the Grahain electro-plate is of nickel silver. The slver-plateil wares made upon this base combine all the excellence of the solid silver goods except the intrinsic value of the silver itself. One of the remarkable features of the process of electro-plating Is pertect accu racy and delicacy with which the finest line of the engraving or chasing traced en the surface of the nickel base is reproduced en the surface of the silver coating. Thus all the excellence of workmanship which has earned for the company its reputation as makers of sterling silver goods Is made tributary te the production of unsurpassed electro-plate. The quantity of pure silver deposited en the finely finished base exceeds that upon the best of foreign plate. This ware would be excellent and take a line polish without a coating et silver, yet upon it is laid a silver surlace which will if net abused last mere than a generation. Theebjectis te produce plated ware which shall have all the beauty of the solid wares. This high grade et ware is un dlstlngulshable from work in Sterling silver. Its pattern, ornaments and workmanship are made equal te these for which the Company's Sterling Silverware has been se highly com mended. Te these conditions is added the undettnable air or style which distinguishes the genuine in everything from the work et imitators and which naturally transfers itself from the Sterling te the plated ware. The price et these goods is only a trifle higher than some of he inferior productions. H. Z. RHOADS & BRO., Jewelers, Ne. 4 West King Street, Lancaster. DR. BROWNING'S TOHC AND ALTERATIVE!

He is a Methodist, aud then, as new, preached at times, and in his discourses often declaimed earnestly against ail kinds of strong diink. When advised te trv Reigart's Old Brandy, In his case, he looked up with astonishment, but after hearing of its wonderful effects in the cases et some of his near acquaintances, lie at last consented te fellow our advice. He used the Brandy faithfully and steadily; the lli-st bottle giving hiiiiun appetite, and before the second was taken he was a sound man, with a stomach capable of digesting any tiling which lie chose te eat.
