Gold at 1 p. m., 111 A day er two ago several parties indulged In the pleasant pastime of shooting at a mark with revolvers, on the bank ol tbe Creek, back of the McClintock House. This sport no doubt la very agreeable to those engaged, but they do not appear to realize that tbey are endangering people's lives by so doing At tbs time these men were en gaged In firing, several children were play" ing on tbe opposite bank of the Creek and n , a number of men were at work on Hanna & IT' ti Co's machinenbop, and the bullets whls on tya M ,UCh dBner0Hi Proximity lo thein l.a iV i"8' tne "n were forced to temporarily quit Jjr' ''wk being In tear of their lives. Unless f this practice is stopped we are requseted to slate that the parties will be prosecuted to the lull extent of tbe law. A word to tbe wlae Is sufficient. It will be remembered that a lew months Slnoe we published s sketch of a new inven tion known as Robinson's System of Electro Magnetic Railway Signals, Road Crossing and Automatic Signals, Indloatlog Location, Direction, Rapidity aud Length ol Railway Trains, patented by our towoaman, Mr. Win Robinson. From Mr. R, we learn that his Invention baa recently been placed on one section of tbe Philadelphia & Erie Railroad about forty miles from Warren, for tbe pur pose or practically testing its merits, and that it is the intention of tbe Pennsylvania Central Railway Co. to nut it in cenarai use along its entice line should tbe teat prove succesatul. The section in operation on the Philadelphia & Etie R. R. is aaid to be working in a highly satisfactory manner, and there is a atrong probability of tbe sys tem being generally adopted on the Peon ylvanla Road. The invention la a v.l,,.. bieone, and we predict will come into general uso on tbs railroads of tbe United Slates, it hclng a sure preventive against luiiiuaa ucoiaertts.

A fatal accident occur red no the )8ih last., nn the Wood Farm, sear Petroleum Ceo t re, 07 the expl on loo of boiler connected with an ensitis turd io puttiof down an oil well, whicfb resulted la the Instantaneous death of Mr. John Coo- alder, of the vicinity of Cocbranton, Pa. tie wai engaged at fireman and rnglneeil and, It Is supposed was in toe act of exam ining the boiler, and as be threw open the doors, the jar caused thereby Instantly ex ploded the too blgbly expanded material, throwing bim distance of about one hun dred yards, and cutting the back of bis bead in a (rightful manner, so that be waa picked up a corpse. "No others were Injur ed, though the driller was at his post lieu the accident occurred. Meadvllle Republican. The theory or the Republican that the simple jar of tho furnace door by opening waa sufficient to explode the boiler Is erroneous. The boiler was liable to ex plode at aiy moment uoder the (earful pres sure of steam which the deceased was run ning at the time. Tbe boiler has since been examined by competent mechanics and It kas been shown plainly that it was filled with more than tbe requisite amount of water at tbe time of the explosion, but that it was generating steam at a very rapid rale, and the ball attached to the safety valve was too large, not allowing it to "blow off" at less than 150 pounds. High pressure of steam stas undoubtedly tbe only cause of tbe explosion in this case. Jrrkcd. A young man calling himself Prof. J. G. Griffith arrived in tbe third ward last week and hung out his shingle as a medical man, heavy ou catarrh and cbrooio disasea in general. But Prof. Griffith has come to grief. lie was arrest ed on Monday afternoon for practising med icine without a license, and, in default of two hundred dollars bail, was sent to jail by Justice Lytle.

By reference to the advertisement else where, It will be seen that tbe old-time fa vorites, Sherry's New York Theatrical Com. pany, will appear at Sobel's Opera Bouse, on Friday and Saturday evenings of tbia week. Tbs mere announcement of tbeir coming is a sufficient guarantee of crowded bouses. We are in receipt of a oopy of tbe Phila delphia Publio Ledger, in wbicb we find an announcement of tbe death of an infant daughter or our former townsman, Mr. Jas. M. Nowlen, Tbe friends of Mr. N. ana wife lo this vicinity will ympathUe wilb them in their sad aflliction. Mr, Jobn Walters, tbe newly elected Con stable, has sppointed Mr. Thomas Mcllugb a Deputy Constable lor this place. Mr. L. M. Stetnburg is about, to establish a new lumber yard at Ftanblin. Tae citi tensor Franklin will Cod. Mr. S. a reliable man in every respect, aud, the quaiUy or lumber he proposes to Keep on band will be unexcelled in the cxll region. Tbe Clevelnnd Herald of a recent date has tho following in regard to gaa well sin tbatcily: About two weeks since the Cleveland Gas Light and Coke Co., doubtless induced by the general excitement which the late movement in the matter ol sinking artesian gas wells in tbia vicinity baa occasioned, engaged a practical 'boriat," having had quarters in tbe oil regions, to commence operaliona at their works situated between Water andJRiver streets In tbis ci ty, for tbe purpose of ascertaining what is moving about lo tbe bowels of the earth beneath us, Tbe work progressed with tbe results usually attending such undertakings until a day or two since when tbe first traces ol water were perceptible. By Thursday fully fifteen feet of water bad accumulated in the pipe, which was about eight inches in diameter, and about noon on tbat day, the bore being a little over one hundred feet deep, tbe men were suddenly stricken with astonishment wbon tbe whole volume of water, together with dirt, chips, tools, etc., came up from tbe bore with such a force as to cause a pretty general acallering among tbe workmen. A plank was placed over tbe orifice to check the flow of gas but tbe man, wbo volunteered to "bold it down," was pitched Into mid-air and fell with such force as to considerably iujure bim. A hundred pound weight was applied but it was of no avuil and. one weighing five Lundud pounds was none too poweiful to resist the force of tbe current of gas. A pipe of about an inch bore was connected with tbe well, and a supply conducted to one ol tbs stiops of the company, and when a light waa applied it ignited and shot out a flame at ler.st twelve ieet in length. Tne flame produces interne beat, but for illuminative purposes it is not to be very highly estimated, as a flame of theezo usual in our street lamps, did not produce a ligbt In brilliancy in any way to be com pared to tbat of two caudles. Tbe gus is aaid to be very pure, but will not, it is prob able, be of any value tor purposes of illumi nation. Jt la thought, however, that it will prove a very Impottaot acquisition in ita utilisation for beating purposes. Several scientific men examined the gas on Thurs day, and we understand tbat another test Is to be made of its power aod properties. Some have expressed tbe opinion that tbe present flow would soon bo exhausted if al lowed free courso for a day or two, it being thought by them lo be only a "surface sup- piy." A pair of Wisconsin parents tfiered to bet a hundred doliara to fifty that their little girl, thirteen years old, could commit to memory more versta of Scripture than any girl ol tbe aame weight in the neigh borhood. No one would (.ake the bet, so tboy matched her agaiust time. She re pealed 1,100 verses, bad tbe brain lever, and went to be an angel, Tbe parents a'e still at large. Rev, Bishop Simpson, of the M.
