N Taylor of Smethport, me, with a terrible accident, which must necsssarly prove fatal. It seems that Mr. Taylor and Hon. John Backus had been out riding Saturday afternoon, when some part ot the wagon broke, but the occupants were saved from injury by jumping from the carriage. Mr. Taylor returned home in the evening, and being fatigued it is suoDosed he retired early. Mrs. i a - Tavlor with her son were at the store until 11 o'clock, aud when they weat to their home they found Mr. Taylor abed and sleeping very poundly. Mrs. Tay lor was called to another part of tho house, and was absent but a few minu tes and when she returned to the bed room found that Mr. T. was not in bed; she then went into aaother room and dis covered a back door open, and on going to the door heard her husband groaning on the ground some fifteen feet below Assistance was called and the injured man takon to his room, when it was dis covered that his back was broken. Mr Taylor was conscious but unable to tell how the accident occurred. It is sup posed that he was dreaming about the carriage accident and jumped through the door, supposing he jumping from the wagon. Mr. Taylor, is a gentleman of large means and doing an extensive business His death will be a severe loss to Smeth port and McKean county, having busi ness relations with a large portion of the population.

We were presented by Mrs. Derby with a basket of delicious grapes of the Isabella variety. This year Mrs Derby raised about two bnshels and they ripened very well. We have heard it said that grapes would not ripen in this climate: and now that it is demonstrated they will, why not plant more of them; there certainly is no more delicious fruit than the grape, and if they oan be raised hero successfully there is no reasou why the price should not come within the teach of all and in stead of Belling at from ten to eighteen cents a pound be plenty at three to four cents. The Authors of the "Spelling lianli." And now it is said that the publish- . .r t .1- if ers ot veDsiers uiouonunes are re sponsible for the reoont "Spelling Bee" exoitement. Whether this is true or not, the spelling mania wasja good thing, and it undoubtly had a very excellent influence. Of all educational accom plishments, a proper knowledge of the orthrography of our own language is certainly the most durable, and of all defioienoies in our educational methods, that relating to thin study is the most marked. And we were therefore going to say that whether tho spelling excitement came about through the advertising ef forts of the Webstor publishers or not, one thing is quite oloar, and that is that there is nothing that has helped to stimulate the wide-spread interest in the subjoct. or that is so nearly a Speller's Vadn Mccum as Webster's Pocket Dic tionary, sold lor Uao Lol lar, ana to oe had of almost any dealer in books.

Smart-weed far Tannins Purposes. A writer in the St. Louis Globe Democrat is enthusiastic over the dis covery that a variety of the smartweed which grows wild in Missouri in suoh pro(u9sion ai to be a nuisance, surpasses bark in its tanning qualities. As its only cost is that resulting from the labor of cutting and stacking it, say $5 a ton while bark costs in that State $112 per ton, it is argued that hereafter millions of hides will annually be made into leather iu the West instead ot being seot to the Eastern Status to be tanned. which involves the expeose of transpor tation both ways tor the leataer con sumed in the West, besides paying the Eastern capitalists and meohauics for work which could just as well be done at home. It is said that this plant yields at least 10 por cunt, of tannic acid an analysis by the Nebraska State chemist gives nearly 22 per centj from the root aud 17 to 10 percent from tho plant hemlock and oak bark vieldtng lrom 11 to io per cent. !5ui even if the results stated by the Ne braska chemist are correct, it docs not follow that this wood will make as good leather as bark. Tnere are peculiar properties for making good leather found in bark that, so far as is generally known, bav never been equaled in any other material. More or less tannio aoid is fround in almost every plant that grows, and in some the precentajje of tanning is as high as from 44 to 50 per cent. Yet the leather produced by the use of these plants has never come into favor, and that made from some of them is not only bad in color aud defective io other respects, but is liablo to return to a condition very like that of raw hide, which is not the case with bark-tanned leather. The Glule Democrat corres pondent says, however, that actual ex periment has shown that leather of bet ter quality thau bark-tanned leather can be made with this weed in fifteen days les.i time, and that one ton of the plant will tan 400 pounds of leather, while the same weight ol bark will produce but 175 pounds. Senatorial Nomination. As will be found elsewhere tho Sena torial conference for tho senatorial dis trict composed of the counties of Clarion Forest, Elk and Cameron counties, nom ioated.for that position Mr. William P. Fmley, of Clarion county, Mr. Fioley has fur many years been a resident of Salem township, this county. In ad dition to having one of the best culti vated farms io this section of country, he has also for several years beon en gaged iu the oil business. He has been successful to an unprecedented degree. Io addition to his large producing in terests, he is the treasurer of the At lantic Pipe Line, which was built by the producers. lie is regarded as a representative man of that interest, who will acknowledge the compliment at the November eleotion by casting a solid vote for him, He is so favorably known throughout the county for in tegrity, moral worth, and first class business oapacity, as to need but slifct comment from us. Representing as he does, the Republican party oi the dis trict, and one of its greatest industrial interests, we have good reason to hope for his eleotion. No better mao could be selected for the position. If moral worth, executive ability, and fitness be any reoommendation to tbe people of the other counties composing the dis trict. Mr. Finley can be eleoted. Tbe nomination is a good one, and tbe peo ple will do themselves honor in choos ing bim for tbe position by their votes.

An effort is being made by some of our sportsmen to get up a grand hunt ing tournament some time about the middle of October.
