In this country where there me so granny inllguitnalile materials and explosions ora serious character so oftcu occur, a report of this kind, draus out inquiries. We find the cause ot this oxplo sion as lollows : Mr. Musun, wishing to dispose of a lot of old cans that had for merly coutained glycerine, and siill retain ed enough of thai highly explosive urLiclc (Sticking to the sides of tlie cans to mnk it uangorouB for them to be thrown away us iv line, ho thought to coutpl ite th'.-irdcatrus-tiou by LuralUij them, so they wore eaiolitlly 'p'.aced in a pile and (lied.

The Great Vosemite Bitters. The manufucturo of and the demand for this popular Bittora- is daily increasing, and it finds favor in every market where it lias been introduced., The only "trade-mark," in our opinion, this popular tonic noeds, is a more extended system of advertising, and benco a far groater demand. Wjth judi cious advertising, such as every popular medicine is receiving or has received that is, asystem of advertising that will place its name before the peoplo of evory State in the Union which requires a small amount morecapttal than is at present invested In it by its p:oprietor, nnd .the income will yoarly increase, until the sales compare with other medicines of a diffjront nature that are now beloro tbo public, yielding im mense incomes to those who are so fortu nate as to be connected with their manufac ture. It is surprising bow rapidly the de mand lor tbo groat Yosomite Bitters has increased tinoo its proprietor first introduc ed it, and we vunture to say that, should u sufficient amoutit of capital becomo inter ested iu its maniifuclure, it would prove to bo one of tho bust paying inrestiuoiits in which a limited amount of money could be placed. We thronr out these suggestions, not knowing whother the proprietor, Dr. J. W. Downer, will approve or not, but we bavu had our say, and now he can have bis.

Live Rat in a Boy's Stomach. The Altoona Tribune oi this week has tbo fol lowing "rat" story : Wo called'ntitho house of Mr. James S.

The little fellow, as stated by the mother, had been plying about the yard, when feeling no doubt uncomfortable, he came to his mother and displayed restlessness and sick-nes.-, with frequent evidenc:1! of strangula tion, exciting the mother's tears that some thing serious was about to transpire. After great exertion, he threw up,-to all intents nnd purposes, an actual living rut, which solar ns tho mother could toil, might have been swallowed t.y the liov.biit in what woy or manner will perhaps rema'n forever mystery, tho rat could not Lave been, Irom all appearances, mote than tliren or lour (inys old, ns it was entirely hairless meas uring, as near as we could jtidc not bav Ing a rule at bind an inch nnd a half in longlb, alive andkicking.
