An exchange says: The best thing for cleaning tin ware is common soda. Dampeu with a cloth and dip into soda, and rub the ware briskly, after which wipe dry. Any blackened or dirty ware cun be made to look as well as new. Good Advice. A cotemporary says: "Now is the time to put every dollar into circulation." Yes; don't lock up the money. A "nimble" or circulating sixpence will do moro to make business brisk, and work . plenty, than thousands that are under lock and key. Every dollar put into circulation will pay hundreds of dollars of debts in a vety short timer. Let all remember this. How to Kill a Town. Underrate your neighbor's property; withhold your support from home mechanics and man ufacturers and artisans; buy what you need elsewhere in preference to home; and if you are in business refuse to ad vertise. If this won't kill tho most prosperous town in America, it is proof against ingratitude and hard times. Some persons we wot ot should remem ber this. Tub Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, I. 0. 0. F., in his annual report, says the membership of the order has more thn doubled itself in seven years. In l304 it was 39,543; in 1870 it foots up 80,153. The number ot lodges in operation is G64, an increase of 63 during the past year; aggiegato number of meaibers 80,153, having increased 4,588 during 1870.

In spite of all the exposures of the counterfeit greenback saw-dust swindle, a resident of New Galilee, Mercer county, took a box from the express office at Enon Valley last, paying Dinety-six dollars thereon, and found it filled with saw-dust.

Housekeepers should never allow tka plate of a mirror, or even their widow panes to be cleaned with news paper. Almost all newspapers uow use Daae containing straw as a component, and as the substance of straw is largely composed of silox (Bint,) which can not be entirely eliminated in the pro cess of manufacture, the result is con eeries of minute scratches on the face of tho glass, not always visible to the naked eye eiogly, but ia a mass prq- lucing a cloudy and dull appearance, ruinous to the glass.

Mr. Simeon Dunn, one of the oldest settlers of Erie oounty, died at his resi dence in this city, on Sunday last, in his ninetieth year, lie was an enterprising citiieo, and a soldier of 1812, in which capacity be rendered important service to his eountry, He planted the maples that adotn our beautiful parks, which are a living monument to his memory. He was possessed of great physioial en durance, and was apparently in good health until within a few days. On Friday before last he went to MoKcan to dig up a load of young maple trees, ODd in getting them, so overworked himself that he was taken violently ill and failed from that hour, until his death.

In one instance an apple and pear orchard of 500 trees being thus destroyed. The roots and trunks nav iog been eaten off just below the sur face. Ju Rons. The New York Commer cial Advertiser complains bitterly of tho absurdity of some of tho rules gov erning the empanneling of jurors, and particularly of that rule which dis qualifies a man for the position of juror who has toruidu and expressed an opin ion. Tho Advertiser, with great sever ity, argues that the ignoramus who can neither read nor write, or the simpleton who does not understand what he reads, or the half ignoramus, half simpleton, who neither reads nor understands, is esteemed a fit person to pass judgment in cases that involve tho most mocient- out interests to society, while the citizen who has every qualification intelligently and faithfully to judge of such matters, is excluded practically on that account. The habit ot carrying deadly weap ons is getting to be a nuisance in this country, and is about as often produc tive of evil consequences to the carrier as to any other. A few days ago, in Chicago, a young man was escorting his sweetheart through tho street, when a gentleman stepped up and addressed tho lady in a familiar manner. With out waiting for an explanation the first gentleman drew bis pistol and shot the latter. He then found it was the lady's brother bo bad phot. This is a fair ex ample of the lamentable casualties that necessarily prow out of the practice of having deadly weapon's in one's pos session. Jiioitaulo persons especially should avoid it. A Terrible, Heart-rending Dis aster. On Friday afternoon of last week as Mr. Charles C. Clark, a well- known and highly respected citizen ofl the oil regions, was conveying across the country near Titusville, some 400 pounds of nitro-glycerine, his wagon passed over a rough bridge rather rapid ly, which caused an explosion of tho glycerine, and he, his wagon, horses and the surrounding trees, etc., were hurled into atoms in an instant. There was not a piece of the wagon left a foot long. The wagon tires were blown in fragments. Large forest trees in the vicinity were blown into atoms. A barn twelve rods below was nearly destroyed. The man's body was literally blown into atoms. No piece ot it oould be found larger than half bis Lead. Small pieces were found in every direction for sixty rods around. Northeast Star.

Whether old age is to be respected depends very much whether it applies to men and women or to poultry. Eve was the only woman who never threatened to go live with .mamma. And Adam was the only man who never tantalized his wife about "the way mother used to cook." Mr. Carver, doing the honors of tho table, said to one ot his guests, a fash ionably dressed girl ot the period, "I see that you have plenty of breast. Miss, but do have a little more dress ing." Oaths are vulgar, senseless, offensive, impious; they leave a noisome trail upon the lips, and a stamp ot odium upon the soul. Thet are inexcusable. They gratify no sense, while they outrage taste and dignity. "I stand." said a Democratic stump orator, "on tho broad platform of tho principles of 08, and palsied be mine arm if I forsake 'em!" "You stand on nothing of the kind!" interrupted a little shoemaker in the crowd, "you stand in my boots that you never paid mo for, and 1 want the money. A citizen of New Jersey, being un expectedly called upon to address a Sun day school, rose to his feet in some con fusion; and after several desperate but vain efforts to say something appropriate, hoarsely murmured: "Dear children, never fool with powder.

It is a littlo comfort therefore to find The Week's News, a pretentious London newspaper speaking of "The Ku-Klux debate at Philadelphia, in both Houses of Congress. Even John Bull some times errs, being human. An Illinois woman committed suicide by hanging herself to an apple-tree. At the funeral, a friend noticing the sad appearance of the husband, con soled tim by saying that he bad met with a terrible loss. "Yes," says the husband, heaving a sigh; "she must have kicked like thunder to shake off six bushels of apples that would have been worth a dollar a bushel when they got ripe.

There is an energy in the keeping of boardiDg bouses in Arkaagaa-quite- un known in the North. The proprietor of a private hostelry in a town of that State, having heard frequent complaints from his boarders about the regular re currence of hash, prepared to crush tho rebellious spirit. At the next morning meal be placed two revolvers beside his plate, and remarked, "Whoever says he doesn't like hash lies " He then be gan distributing hash, but no man de clined it. It is interesting to observe the growth of this country. In 1775 Benjamin Franklin, after removal from his Deputy Postmaster Generalship by the British Government for his rebellious spirit, was appointed chief of the Postal De- Eartment by the Colonial Congress and ad the supervision of about 50 Post offioes in the whole country. There are now 20,000 Postoffiees, 7,300 mail con tractors, and 13,000 mail routes truly something ot a change. A new and important question baa arisen in the U. S. District Court in bankruptcy in New York. It has been found in a majority ot instanoes no ac count has been rendered of the sums paid by bankrupts to their lawyers; and as all the assets ot a bankrupt belong to his creditors, it is claimed that a bank rupt has no right to fee counsel with any of the proceeds of his estate, and that counsel in receiving such tees in voluntarily take the place of debtors, and may be sued. The court, it is said, will make an order on the subject. Goeth was in comnanv with a mother and daughter when the latter, being re proved, blushed ana Durst into tears.

BMCTHERtD TO. DEATH IN A MINE. Pittston, Pa., May. 23. A column of smoke, which soon grew dense, rising from the shaft of the West Pittston mino yesterday afternoon, at 2 o'olock, lold that the shaft was on fire, and caused an immediate rush of all the people about hero for tho rescue of the numerous miners known to be below. There succeeded 24 hours of desperate exertion to subdue the fire and to pene trate the recesses of the mine before all the unfortunate men should bo suffocated. At the end of that period, tho last of the 33 who had been entombed was brought to the surface Eighteen were dead. Most of iho others were in a state of insensibility when found, but recovered upon reaching the air above ground. With tho horrors of Avondale fresh in their minds, few had dared to hope that any of these men could be saved, and the grief-stricken women and children clustered as near as they could about the mouth of the shaft, wailling piteously, and almost hopelessly awaiting the result of the search below. To some of them, who were at first ap- f tailed by the sight of the apparently ifeless body of a husband when brought to the surface, there came the great happiness of finding that it was but a seeming death. But rising above all else were the loud lamentations of newly-made widows and orphans, and strong men paled as they worked about the shaft with frenzied energy. It has not yet been clearly ascertained bow the fire originated, though it ap pears to havo been caused by friotion in the journals of the sheaves, or of the breaker, as at Avondale. LATER. Pittston, Pa., May 29. The men who were thought to be rescued from the dan gers of the mine are dying one by one, and the phyticians in atlendance express little hope that any of them will survive. A number of them were exceedingly strong men, but the poisonous vapor of the mine, acting on their systems during so many hours, has utterly prostrated them. The nervons exhaustion succeeding the shock of realizing the hopelessness of their sit uation, when the nature of the calamity was discovered, has also, no doubt, muoh aggravated their injuries Sulphurous gases are continually emitted from the lay ers of coal, and lo escupo these, as they accumulated far down in the mine and gralually rose, the fated miners sought the highest accessible point?, to await tho efforts at rescue. It is now believed that many of them might have been saved,' if, as soon as the mouth of the shaft was cleared, a fan had been employed to force air down into the passages where the men wen,, and drive back the rising tide of choke damp. The large fan which had been used at the mine was burned, and in the confusion the expediency of applying a new one was neglected, until it was too late. mi LIST.

The "Burlington Ronto," so called, lies right in the path of the Star ot Em pire. It runs almost immediately in the centre of the great westward movement of emigration. Crossing Illinois and Iowa, it strikos the Missouri' river at three points. These three points are tho gateways into three great sections of tho trans Missouri, region. The Northern gate is Omaha, where tho great Pacific road will take you to the land of gold and grapes, sunny mountains, and perpetual summer. Tho middle gate is Plattsmouth, which opens npon the south half of Nebraska, south of the Platto river, a region un surpassed on the continent for agricul ture and grazing. Just here are tho B & M. Railroad lands, concerning which Geo. S. Harris, the land officer at Bur lington, Iowa, can give you all informa tion, and in the heart of them is Lin coln, the State Capital and present ter. minus of the road. The Southern gate leads to Kansas, by connection with the St. Joe Road at Hamburg, running direct to St. Joe and Kansas City. The trains ot the Burlington run smoothly and safely, and mako all con nections. It runs the best of coaches Pullman Palace and Pullman dining cars, and should you take the journey for the journey's sake alone, you will be repaid; or take it to find a home or a farm, and you cannot find either better than among the B. & M." lands, where you can buy on ten years' credit, and at a low prioe. vln2yl.
