Nice rain on Friday afternoon last. No new coses of scarlet fcaver at time of writing. Dogs are a condemned nuisance and the crop Is large. "Lecdlo Yowcob Strauss"' was in town last week.

Levi Cortright's child died of scarlet fever on Saturday night last. Funeral to-day. Sowers received over seven hundred quarts of blackberries one day last week. The tools for tho new well have been received and drilling will commenced immediately. The Wilcox Lumber Co. were re pairing the roofs of their boiler build ing last week. School will commence in a few days. Principal W. S McPherran, assistants, Misses Lura Brown and Winnie Murphy. G- Whipple dentist of CubaN.

The new well, in which he Is interested flows about seventy-fivo barrels per day. "X" chews large quantities of to bacco while playing croquet; so does "King." It is about "which mid tother" with "X" and "King" at the game (croquet.) The strife over tho best specimen of millet raised in this town, still con tinues. The W. L. Co. have exhib ited a stalk that beats all former ones, but it was raised on ground, that was manured seveu feet high. Sebastian Wimmer was in town on Friday last and was closeted with the Wilcox aspirant for the offiee of As sembly, it is rumored to-day that Brown has withdrawn, it seems to me that, that would be a very wise proceeding on his part. There is some prospect now that tho Schultz well will be a paying thing al'tei all. It has been llowing oil for the past week, with a steady increase, nnd its proprietors as well as the pro prietors of the new well are, of courae, in high spirits. "King" says that he has a couple of brass band instruments which he will dispose of, for a very small sum of motley, they are horns that have done a good deal of ordinary tooling, and are callable of doing a great deal more. Considering what they have gone through and what has gone through them, they are in very good condition, and with a healthy pair of lungs might still stir up a pretty lively in terest in a small town like Wilcox. These horns were once apart of the defunct "Wilcox Cornet Jeff Urown Brass Baud." ROSS. Better times for the Oil Regions and Northwestern Pennsylvania have long been prophesied. Tho happy days are now here Oil which has sold, given away would be the proper expression, utthe wells for forty cents per barrel has been steadily advancing in pi-ice, and at last has reached a repectable paying figure, viz $3 50 per barrel. Wells tiiat six weeks ago were not considered worth Si!,00.) cannot now be purchased for $1'(I0 Every one is happy, the oil region papers are jubi lant, anil business has had a wonder" ful revival. Oh, oil is the feverish ex citement and after the low prices the producers have until recently been re ceiving are considered, who can blame them if they are joyful'.' Eric L)U patch. CurriNa Rates to the Centen nial Tho Lake Shore road having placed on sale at Girard, Ashtabula and ruinesville tickets to Philadelphia (good for five days and for u continu ous passage) at 0,80, the Philadelphia and Erie road has directed Mr. Foster, tho Ticket Agent in this city, to sell similar tickets over that line for $'3,50. Return tickets may be purchased in Philadelphia at the same price. Now that the passenger-fare war has started up afresh, there's no telling where it will end. Erie Dispatch. Summit Tunnel, that magnificent piece of masonry sixteen miles east of Reynoldsville on the Low Grade rail road, is completed, says the Reynolds ville Herald, and now the little vil lage that sprang up around it.and that was sustained by it, will sink into oblivion; and the lights of the work men that gave the hole in tho moun tain that wierd appearance to the traveler have vanished; and the jolly fellows, the engineers and supervisors, are no longer there to exchange friendly greetings; but the grand old mountain is there, and as you glide gracefully through tho half mile un der ground don't forget that the little rivulet you left at tho entrance finds its way through the longest channel in the world into tho Gulf of Mexico, and the little rivulet you find at the exit seeks its course thro the turbu lent Susquehanna into the Chesa peake. Summit Tunnel is finished, and a magnificent grand old tunnel it is. Digest of Election Laws. Tolls open at 7 A. M. and cloio at 7. P. M. who can vote.

Cornelius Wainright, a well-known I lumberman of Dry Saw Mill, Elk Co., Pa., died at his residence tho :)lst of July, aired 57 years and 1-1 days. The deceased complained fitt in Novem ber last and in February, considering the danger of his illness, he sum moned Dr DeLoitg of Emporium, by letter, whose skillful treatment brought the disease under control, and in April ho went down the river, return ing home again the 10th of May, and from exposure during his rafting trip, his former illness took hold of him again. Dropr-y set in, making its ap pearance first in the feet and ankle.-:. Dr. Delong being in New York, Dr. Bailing w;, sent for, and two days af ter the family learned that Dr. De Long had rf'turned homo, ho was im mediately pa tolled for. When he came he pronounced the ease uncer tain, but at the request of the family he proscribed remedies to meet the case, ami for about six weeks of the time the patient could neither lie down or sit up, except by leaning for ward, when in a chair, with his head re-sling on a fixture constructed like a carpenter's saw-!iorso, but finally got so as to be able to lie down and seemed to boon the mend, v. hen he took to bleeding at the lungs and lived only five days. The decetifcd was born in Delaware Co., N. J., near the forks of the Dele ware river, where, after his father's death, he became the owner of a farm the nearest village being 1 uncock, where ho did a thriving husimvs at blacksiuithing. Contracted largely in the purchase of lumber, and during the rafting seasons ran down the Delaware to Philadelphia. In l-lo lie moved his family ;10:) miles on a raft to Delanco, N. J., twelve miles above Philadelphia where he brought a half interest in a large saw-mill, manufac tured oak and pine lumber, furnished builders in the county and supplied a shipyard In Wio he sold out to his partner, a Mr Wilmarton, and moved to Camden, N J., and engaged in the wharf building business with Jona than Powell of Philadelphia. Bought the lumber of his old neighbors up the Delaware. Got a bill passed in the New Jersey Legislature to prohibit people from running drift lumber up ditches when the tide was high. Gained the good will of the fisher men and by the signatures got up a petition that defeated a wealthy cor poration from darning Iho Delaware river. Secured the charter for the Fanners and Mechanics Rank of Camden, for a company of Quakers, which gave him great financial strength. Filled largo contracts with the Government navy yard a Phila" delphia. In 1S'7, on account of the ill health of his family, he sold out at Philadelphia and moved to the Sec ond Fork, now Driftwood. Leased a farm of John Coleman, together with a hotel, blacksmith and wagon shop, where ho conducted business until ISti'J, when he moved up the Bennett's Branch, where ho engaged in tho lumber business again. In ISliS he erected What is known as the Dry Saw Mill, near Grant Station, from which the post office took its name, which he continued to run and swing the blacksmith hammer until his recent illness. Although Mr. Wainright met with many reverses and oft times compelled to work under very discouraging cir cumstances, ho moved along lu tho same orbit, was liberal in his viws, always expressed ids opinions without fear or favor. He leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss. J. W. Theue seems to be a little row in tho camp of the Elk county Democ racy. Tho cloud is now about the size of a meeting house, and no telling how much larger it may become- M ATE NOTES. Apples are bo plenty in Union county they cannot bo given away. A snake containing 4o young ones was dispatched by an Allentown youth a low days ago, A now enterprise is about to be started in ScrantoH-a lire-arms and a pri nt ing-press facto ry .

It is said the Minor's Trust savings bank at Potlsville will not pay iu creditors over-') cents on I he dollar. A West Chester youth nearly sliced oil' his nose by attempting to brush away u hornet with his hand in which he held an open knife. Prof. John T- Reed has been re elected principal of the Itenovo public schools, at a salary of $70 per month. The little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wells Leonard, living in Sinithfield, Bradford counly, while in tho garret with her mother found a bottle con taining corrosive sublimate, which had been stowed away with some other bottles in the garret. Tile child, Ignorant of what it contained, drank some of its contents. The mother soon noticed that something was tho matter with her child, who having the bottle in her hand, led her mother to suspect the trouble. As the symp toms become more marked antklotcs of egg and milk were administered, but to no cltbct. Dr. I'nderwood was then called. Although not more than three-quarters of an hour bad elapsed from the time tho poison was taken until the Doctor arrived, it was loo lato to save tho child, who died in about two hours after taking the poison. JourimL Eight weeks ago a little four years of age, daughter of Mr. Henry Bos singer of Lewistown, accidentally got a common iron tack into her lung, Child-like she foolishly put the tuck into her mouth, and when about to laugh or scream if lodged in the wind pipe, and thence found its way down to (he right lung. Medical aid could hoof no avail; but. singularly enough, tlio apprehensions at first entertained that the accident must result in death are not likely to bo verified. lOxcopt iug a constant p.iiu in the right side, the child docs not seem tu experience any serious consequences, and, young and robust in she Is, it is highly pi'.jbable that nature's hand will work a web or sack around the foreign sub stance, (as is frequently the case in llesh wounds,) and thus protect the lung from serious injury for a iilo time.

In a speech at Mansfield, Ohio, Senator Sherman said that ex-Secretary Pol knap had always been and is still a Democrat; that ho was appointed be cause he was a Democrat, and, as the President supposed could bo trusted. Tho defeat of John Hancock, who litis served three terms in Congress, ami has been the leader of the forlorn hope in Texas for Democratic loyalty and reform, by D C. Giduings, a cor rupt and bitter Confederate, has dis gusted tito bitter, class of Democrats everywhere: A meeting of I risk Democrat.! was held at Worcester, Mass., Monday night, at which a committee was chosen to perfect an organization for the purpo.-o of opposing the nomina tion of Charles Praucis Adams for Governor by the Democrats. This action is file result of .Mr. Adams' action in relation to the l-'eniaus .rhilv Miniver to England. The breach between the Tammany factions is gaping now more widely than ever. Mr. Kelly would rather sic Tiideil defeated than elected; he proposes to support him only to main tain his standing in the Democratic party for focal purposes. If the quar rel oY local factions is carried into the State Convention, am! the eluims of Tammany are rejected, Mr. Tilden v." iil receive only ;i left-handed sup--port from its spoils-hunting chiefs. In tho course of his opening spt-eclli Monday night, General Butler said: "A short time since a cow was killed at Wilkinson, Miss., and what was the result of ii'.' Why, twenty-nine ne groes were killed. Do you suppose the killing of that cow was the reason'.' No, it was the beginning of a poltieal campaign. This was it. Yet let Con gress be tilled with rebel generals, and what would happen, with .Mr. Tilden at the bead of ,.lho Government? Would the dog wag tho tail or the.tail wag tlie liogv" New York Tttetraw; "Governor Tilden should put the brakes en the Louisiana Democrats. The Xew Or leans I'icfiyiiitc has just published a letter in which they are advised to 'as sume an aggressive atliude, and turn out of employment all negroes who vote the Republican ticket. This cer tainly is not what the Governor meant by advising an aggressive Democratic campaign, and it will cost hii.i a great many voles if he does not make iiis meaning clear to these ar dent Southern partisans. " The following letter is a clincher: Seaiielil, l-'ort Hampton, N. Y. July, lbTi) Dear Sir. Yours is received, and I hasten to reply to it. Mr. Tilden did not unite in the call for the great Union meeting in Xew York after tho attack and surrender of Port Sumter. But he refused to attend it, though ur gently i-olieiled to by one of his own political friends. The meeting was eat led for tlie purpose of sustaining the ciovoriiinoiit, and to provide for sending troops to Washington, which was thought to be in danger of an at tack by the Confederates. This fact was publicly stated when Mr. Tilden was a candidate for Governor in 18(51. I am, dear sir, truly yours, John A. Dxx. W. E. Wl'issti'.k, Esy. This is ex-Post muster General Jewell's estimate of tho Itopublican candidate; "Kuowinghini personally inyoif, i lVel authoiMod in assuring you that he is a modest, uiiassumingf man, as courageous as a lion and linn us a look in maintaining right and dis charging duty. Wherever has been the post of duty there has been found Governor Hayes, always ready to do bis part and always taking a load for the right. Anil that is tho kind of a man we want for President, who would .sooner be sculped than to leave his post of duty, or fail of doing his full duty while at his post." The Democratic, managers, nt Wash ington have become alarmed at tho enthusiasm with which the nomina tions of Hayes and Yv heeler have been received by the ex-soldiers of tho Union army, and liu-vo eiuleavored to counteract the movement by tho for mation of a Soldiers' Veteran Associa tion, with General Hooker as presi dent and General Denver as chairman of the Executive Committee. This committee is engaged in preparing an address in which they will try to show how much the Democrats care and have done for Union soldiers, and also try to entice into their organization tho.Mj credulous onus who favor Til den's election.
