All the ladies and gentlemen of Ridgway are invited to call at the Advocate ofilce, and see the new and nobby styles of fancy note paper, In elegant boxes, which we received yesterday. On May 1st 8. A. Rote opened his West End Photograph Gallery. ' He wishes us to inform the public that the Gallery will remain open for a short time only. Those wishing pic tures will do well to call at once. About thirty German settlers, a nunrtjer with families, have arrived. They signify their Intention of build ing log houses on the land, and com mencing the work of cutting down the timber and clearing the land at ouce. C. G. Malin and Harvey Malin have been out in the pigeon fields, for some time, engaged in hauling pigeoiiB to the railroad station for shipment. They make a round trip in a day, and get from ten to eighteen dollars for the trip, being paid at the rate of a shilling a dozen. Next Wednesday the school direc tors of Elk county will meet in Ridg way for the purpose of electing a Co. Superintendent, for the ensuing three years, to succeed Sup't. Dixou. As no other candidates are in the field, so far as heard from, we presume Mr. Dixon will succeed himself. On Wednesday night Dickinson Bros, rafted in a ten platform piece. and on Thuasrtay morning started down the river with it. They had not gone far before compelled to stop on account of a broken oar. A new oar was procured and the raft con tinued on its way to market. At Curt Barrett's dance, in Magin- nis' hall, on Friday night, the prizes civen to the best waltzers were: to best lady waltzer, Miss Jones, silver fruit knife; to best gentleman waltzer, Nelson Jackson, a gentleman's shaving case. Charles Holes, Madison Kline, and W. S. Horton were the judges. The rainy weather we have exper ienced, for several days past, has tilled the streams nearly to overflowing, Our lumbermen have, with few excep tions, succeeded in getting their lum ber out, aud in consequence they feel in good humor. Now, with a fair price and ready sale, we may expect a large amount of money to be brought back to this section. Judge RoKS says we were in error as to the age and builder of that old house, formerly ou the site of M. E. Lessor's new one. He says the house was built by Thomas W. Barb jr in the year 1830. At that time the Judge oc cupied a 12x12 shop, near the same place, in which he worked at the trade of tailoring. Judge Dickinson also corroborates these acts. Subsequently the house was owned by Caleb Dill B. F. Rhoades, of Fox township, has invented a new saw tooth, for cir cular or upright saws, which planes the lumber as It is sawed. The planer is fastened to aud runs a sixteenth of uu iuch ahead of the old-fashioned tooth. He has also inven ted a saw. for the use of carpenters and others, which has two chisel teeth and a clear ing tooth, these being repeated the lencrth of the saw. He claims that this saw will rip a board better than the old-fashioned rip saw, and it will also cut a smooth joint, thus conibin ing t wo saws In one. Mr. Gemmill informs us that the total number of birds shipped from Sheffield, up to April 27, is 353,846, Lately the price of dead birds is low and 14,600 live ones were shipped dur Ing the last week. Counting 50,000 from Tionesta and 40,000 from Tidi oute, which is no doubt below the ac tual figure, we have 443,810. Some have been shipped from Kane and other points, while many have been carried away by shootists. It is proh ably safe to say that half a million nitreons. dead and alive, have been taken in this section. Warren Mail Now is the time to fix yourselves lip for summer, and now is your great opportunity. We see that some of our merchants, noticeably Powell & Kime, the old stand by firm, are filling up with an unusually line stock of goods of every description. They appear to be supplying every body with Grocer les, Provisions, Feed, &c. They also have a very handsomestock of Carpets, Floor and Table Oil Cloths, Clothing, .Dress uoods, Boots and Shoes, Crock ery, and everything else. They an pear to be doing a fine business, not withstanding they do not advertise. They are very fair dealing men, and always, so far as we know, give their customers their full money's worth They ought to advertise, and they did until they laid the foundation of their splendid business. We submit It is not fair for them to quit patronizing their own town papers, after having, in times past, received so much bene fit from printer's Ink, Yet, they know how to buy and sell goods, and people will pay out their money where they can get the most for it. rTersonal Notes.

Grove Messenger has sowed super phosphate on his South street farm He is bound to have some hay for his cow if fertilizer will bring It. P. T. Brooks has trimmed the trees in the court yard. None too soon, as the trees were growing to top and not spreading out enough. If you plant your potatoes in April there may be a June frost. If you plant in May there may be a July Irost.

And when they kissed each other half the girls In town were jealous. Judge Messenger has put up a new board fence between Grove's drug store and the Judge's barn, thus ad ding to his garden spot. Besides, the fence will prevent the fellows from going behind the drug store, on elec tion day, for their bitters. . The present month is the last, month of school, and closes Mr. and Mrs. Johnson's year. For the good of the school they should be retained, as no doubt they will be, for another year. Ridgway now has one of the best conducted graded schools in the State. ,. Capt P. R. Smith has bought John (iulnack'a farm, in the Malin neighborhood, for $2000,00. The farm comprises one hundred acres, of which twenty-five acres are cleared. There is a house and barn on the place, be sides quite an amount of hemlock bark ana timber. All in all, with the oil prospects thrown in, the Captain un J doubtedly has a bargain. Death of Mr. Johannah Warner. The Erie Dispatch, of Monday morning, gives a detailed account of the death of the above named woman, with the evidence taken before the coroner's jury. Deceased, had been in the United States but about seven months, was sixty-five years of age, and when she came to this country! had considerable money In gold. Her death was caused by the immoderate use of strong drink. .. Being arrested on the streets of Erie, in an intoxl-. cated condition, sho was committed to the county jail where she died, about three o'clock Saturday afternoon last. At the time of her death a purse was fonnd upon ,her lierson which con tained one single cent. Two of her daughters live in this county, one mar ried to Mr.' Dukelow, of Fox town ship, and the other to John Murphy, of Ridgway township, both of whom refused to have anything to do with the remains of the unfortunate dead woman. It has been but a few days since she was on the, streets of this vil lage In an intoxicated condition. We append part of the evidence before the coroner: ' ' ' -: ": 1 Chief of Police Crowley testified that on last Tuesday night , the woman was brought to the station house ; was very drunk ; said her name was Jo hannah Murphy ; in the morning when sobered up she gave the name of Johanna Warner and said that she had a daughter at Ridgway, Pa., who was married to a man named Duclaw : they treated her so badly that she couldn't live with them and had come to Erie j she stopped at Kelly's Globe Hotel, Peach street, on Monday night; went to Mayor stated case and was told to discharge the woman and order her to leave town ; Saturday night he saw her staggering along Seventh street; she was off the sidewalk in the road ; told Policeman Sandusky to arrest her ; in the lock-up she was very lively and kept up a continual talk with a prisoner confined in a cell adjoining; she was a native of Ireland ; said she had been in the United States seven months ; found a purse upon her per son; it contained one single solitary cent. i - ; t James Kelley, proprietor of the Globe Hotel, was sworn. He first saw the woman last Monday night; she came in on the Philadelphia and Erie train ; asked for a night's lodging which was givenjher ; she handed his wife seven gold sovereigns and some English money for safe keeping; money was given back in the morn ing ; about ten o'clock that night she made so much noise that he threatened to turn her out;'the' was drunk; she told his wife thatshe had two children in the Orphan Asylum in this city ; wanted to sell him a feather bed that she had in her trunk at the depot ; had not seen her since Tuesday morning.

Policeman Healy stated that he es corted the woman to the jail ; she was very feeble; walked very slow; she complained that somebody had swln died her out of a feather bed. Dr. Strickland testified that he was called to the jail shortly after3 o'clock; made partial examination and found that the woman was dead.
