RIDGWAY, PA., MAY 9, 1878.
General Jail Delircrj. George Smith, the Wilcox burglar j Charles Coffee, the Centrevllle rioter; and Dave Donaley, the man who was sent to Jail for stealing a blanket from Jacob Butterflies, and whose term ex pired week ago Monday, all took a trip oyer the Jail wall, on the west side, and are now as free as birds of the air. Saturday evening last, at eight o'clock, the three aforementioned wor thies were supposed to be safe and sound in our securely arranged county jail. At a later hour they were gone. They made a grapling hook of stove pokers and rungs from their Iron bed stead; these Irons were bont in the form of a hook at one end, and the bundle secured at the other end with wire. The bed clothes were torn Into ehreds, and made into a rope. This rope was fastened into the wire end of the grapling hook, or anchor, and at the right time was thrown over the Jail yard wall, when the anchor caught on the coping, and by this means the fj. . . . 1 ! . .1. .,,1 U'Knn 4nr the wall the hook was secured on the ' Inside, the rope lowered on the outside, i t i rr. l .. on a goou-oy jomi. i u uuy i m en cape was the first time Smith had been allowed to leave his cell since his at tempted escape on March th, and was only out at this time on account of the jail being whitewashed, and it was therefore, necessary that his cell door should beopen. The door that opens Into the jail yard had not been un locked for a week, and was secured, besides the regular lock, with a patent pad-lock, whicli is considered to be burglar proof. The keys were all found in tneir accustomed place, by the jailor, H. H. Wensel, on his return from down town at about 9 o'clock. How the door came to be unlocked is a mystery that will probably not be solved until one of the prisoners is caught. In the meantime would it not be a good Idea to give the jail wall a coat of white wash, for that might help to keep the boys in. Election of County Superintendent The Elk County School Directors assembled according to law, on Tues day last, to elect a County Superin tendendent for the ensuing three years and.to fix his salary. Forty-one. of the sixty-six directors, in the county. were present. The meeting was organized by the election of Thos. Irwin, of Spring Creek. Chairman, and E. J. Miller, of Ilidgway, Secretary. Geo. 11. Dixon, present incumbent, was the only candidate before the con vention, and was unanimously re elected. On the question of salary, J. L Brown, Esq., of Wilcox, read the new law in relation to the salary of County Superintendents, and which gives the Elk County Superintendent only $800 from the State fund. He also stated that any greater amount the directors might allow would be paid from the school fund of the county. He then moved that the salary be fixed at$1200, Agreed to: Yeas Messrs. Smith, Booth, Roth rock, Johnson, (Benezette), Barr, Ba bel, Wclgel, Sehoeberl, Meyer, Geitner. Stnessley, Collins, Koch, Hovencamp, Ellithorp.

Sheriff Oyster has erected a bulle tin board, near the Maiu street en trance to the courtyard, for the posting of sales bills. A ten barrel oil well has been . struck six miles south of Tylersburg, Clarion county. Ladies call and see Mrs. Malone's new styles of corsets. Her prices are very low and quality of goods the very best. William Emmett, Jr., of Fox town ship was committed to jail, on Satur day, for an assault and battery on the person of Eben Huntington. The prisoner refused bail. A special dispatch from W. S. Ser yIc, delegate from Elk county to the - National Convention, at Philadelphia, announces the following nominations: 8. R. Mason, of Mercer, Governor; Shearer, Lieut-Governor; Bentley, of Williamsport, Supreme Judge. Thomas Welsh's troubles, arrests, escapes, swimming across the Clarion river, knocking down Deputy-Con stable Kline, breaking the glass in Louis Bren die's show case, &c, would make half a column, and we are too crowded for utterance. Look out for breakers in our next issue. On Thursday evening last an eighteen-month-old-child of Herman Weiss, one of the German emigrants, from Rockville, Conn., was fatally scalded. The child was creeping on the floor where the coffee-pot had been placed, and which it succeeded in up setting, scalding Itself so badly that death ensued on Friday morning. Church Directory, GRACE CHURCH. Rev. Wm. Jas. Miller, next Sunday, morning and evening at the usual hours. LUTHERAN CHURCH. Rev. I. Breneman. German In the morning and English in the evening.

The Second Annual Session of the Elk County Sabbath School Associa tion will be held In the M. E. Church, at Rldgway, on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, May 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, 1878. Commencing Wednesday, at 2.80 P. M., and closing on Friday at noon. This association perfected its organi zation at Wilcox, in May, 1877, when there was a fair representation of Elk County Sabbath Schools, excepting those in the southeastern portion of the county. We hope to have every school in the county represented this year by good efficient delegates. "In Union there Is strength," and the object of this association Is to unito all of our Sabbath Schools In this society, that each may be strengthened by the union. We cordially Invito every Sunday School worker In the county to be present during the whole session, If possible, no matter whether in the capacity of a regularly elected dele gate, or In your own individual ca pacity, we say come t Entertainment will be provided free, for all, from abroad, who will favor us with their presence and assistance, providing they notify the President that such entertainment Is desired. Good music will be furnished for the occasion, and our sessions will be en livened by the presence and assistance of Rev. Crittenden, of Bellefonte, and several other good speakers and work ers, from various parts of our county, who have promised to be present. By some mistake of the Secretary, this convention was announced, in one of our county papers, to take place in April last, but this was simply a mistake, and we hope that no harm has been done by it. W. H. OSTERHOUT, Pres't Wilcox Notes. Wilcox, Pa., May 7lh, 1878. Warm showers. Fine time for grangers. Fruit trees in full bloom. Dick Ernlmut laid an egg last week, and is now Betting. Will give result of his labors in future. Say, Parsons, when you boast of RiJg way' having the best conducted graded sohool in the State, you should say except ing Wilcox. Nothing new of importance at the wells. Still fishing at Ernhout & Taylor's No. 1. No. 2 is down about eighteen hun. dred feet; expect to strike the juglar this week. The Berier well is down about thir. teen hundred feet. Silver Ureek eight or nine hundred. Wilcox, Schultz, & Brown, near town, have the derrick up and waiting for the drillers Barbour, of the M'Eean County Miner, locates Ernhout & Taylor's well No. 1 in M'Kean County. , Now, Barbour, it is hardly fair to appropriate other people's oil wells when you have a five barrel bailer in your own town By the wy, how does that oil tank do now? It's large enough is'nt it? During the past week examinations have been held at our schools, under the charge of Prof.W. H. Prideaux. We have attended most of them and must say we were highly gratified. The examina tions were thorough and exhaustive, and certainly reflect credit upon our corps of teachers, and prove to us that they have been earnest and energetio in their work. Out of about a thousand questions, in the different brandies taught, but six failures were recorded. Nor was it, as is so often the case, a prepared examination, as all the questions were written on slips and handed promiscuously to the pupils after coming to the olses. We might enumerate a number of pupil and classes who excelled, but do not think it would be judicious, and would simply say that the affair was throughout a complete success. The order and system which characterized the meeting was good, and deserving of mention. At the close the Professor made a.few appropriate remarks urging upon patrons their duty in regard to visiting the schools, by way of encourage aieuf to teachers and pupils, and to satisfy themselves that their children were en trusted to faithful teachers. lie rather cen sured us for being derelict in that respect, The reply of a member of the board was. we employ teachers in whom we have confi denoe, and expect them to do do their work in their own way, which really seemed be as eystematio ana thorough as any one could expect or wish. In conclusion w would say, and feel confident we express the sentiment or the community, that our teachers are giving perfect satisfaction in every respect. The Rev. Mr. Wilson commenced his pastorate of the Dutch Reformed Church on Sunday last. He starts off well and gave us an excellent sermon both morning and evening. PETE. A Card. Mr. Editor: It might seem to the closer reader that I had falsely assured Dr. Strsessley (Elk Democrat thi week), that the salary bill of Co. Sup'ts had been defeated, and hence, as here' tofore, the salary was paid out of State funds. The bill in question was de feated on final passage, March 28th and 8ooi after this, or in fact before the bill was reconsidered (and who knew or even thought it would be re considered), I told him it had been defeated. If any man wili show me where I have in this election concealed the truth, told a falsehood, or acted unfair, I will refuse the office. GEO. R. DIXON. M. E.
