Healy on the evening of July 22d, 187'J, when the President, Dr. T. S. Hartley, called the meeting to order and explained its object. Miss Rhoda Wilcox moved the fol lowing resolutions wl ieh were sec onded by Ida Olmsteau, read by the Secretary and unanimously carried: Whcrca, We, the members of Prof. E. V. HoMsehe's music class, having sat under his instructions for the past few months, and Whereon, Having attended his course of instruction during the term just expired have noted his manner of ful, and " Whereas. Prof. Hoelsche has always and under all circumstances conducted himself in a becoming gentlemanly manner und proven himself worthy of our highest commendation. Therefore, He it Jcesofvca, mat we tenner to Prof. E. V. Hoelsche our hearty thanks for the kind and efficient manner, for the ability, energy, discipline and ex tensive practical knowledge, which he brought to bear in ti e management of the class. Prof. Haelsche's very many excellent qualities as a scholar, lin guist and musical teacher qualify him tor any position to which, tie may aspire. After the reading of the above reso lution Doctor Hartley in a neat and appropriate address presented Prof. E. V. Hoelsche, In behalf of the mem bers of his vocal class, with a silver headed ebony cane which was beauti fully engraved with the following inscription: "Presented to Prof. E. V. Hcelst he by his class in vocal music, Ridgway, Pa., 1879." Prof. Hoelsche responded in a very affecting manner. Doctor Earley then spoke on the ad vantages that the pupils of the present day possessed over those who studied music forty years ago, and of the good work Prof. Hoelsche was doing, clos ing with a hearty good wish that the Professor and pupils might live to see many such happy occasions. Mr. David Kline and others made some happy remarks after which Dr. C. R. Earley was made an honorary member. At the earnest desire of the lady members the President requested the Professor to organize a juvenile class in vocal music. A vote of thanks was tendered the President and Secretary for their effl ciency in office. No other business before the associa tion, by request, Uiat grand, good and glorious hymn, ''Coronation,' wai sung by all the members and visitors. after which the President adjourned the meeting sine die.

V"'" ' it.... b iinu SIcKonn Miner. The celebrated case of Book Vs. Tost Is taking another twist before a Master In Chancery. The case was opened yesterday afternoon, before Hon. J. G Hall of Ridgway, as Master. Attor neys David Sterrett and B. D. Hamlin, of Smethport, and Judge Brown, of Warren, appear for Book, and attor neys A. G. Olmsted, of Couderspot, James Buchanan Brawlcy, of Mead villo, and O. A. Hotcbklss, of Bradford appear for Post." Nearly all the attor neys on both sides have been In town for the past two or three weeks giving their undivided attention to getting together amunitlon for the contest. Judging by the array of talent on both sides the contest will bo stubbornly fought and all the ground gone over. The value of the property In dispute Is said to be about $100,000. It has been In litigation in one way or another for a humber of years, and it is not proba ble that this round will settle it. The host of lawyers who are wrangling over it will no doubt get the largest slice of the $100,000 however it is eventually decided, and we are of the opinion that they will be entitled to it, for they have unquestionably done more hard work to cam the disputed property than either of the contest ants. Pittsburgh Female College. Before deciding that important ques tion, "Where shall I educate my daughter?" send for the catalogue of the Pittsburgh Female College. It justly ranks with the best school for ladies in the United States, and In solid and ornamental branches offers rare advantages. Its Conservatory of Music is rapidly gaining a national reputation. The best is the cheapest, and yet its charges are as low as its advantages, and accommodations will warrant far less than many schools which have fewer teachers and less facilities.

Buchu in various forms has for many years beeu one of the chief ar ticles In the Materia' Medico, for the treatment of certain diseases, among which are chiefly those affecting the urinary, digestive, and circulatory organs. The difficulty that was long experienced in obtaining a preparation of this valuable drug that could always be relied upon for uniformity in strength and absolute purity led to the Introduction of Helmbold's Extract of Buchu, which for the last quarter of a bentury has been extensively used both by physicians and in house and family practice, and with very gratify ing success. This medicine, like every other valuable :thing, has , been extensively imitated, and .those who have use for it will do well to see that they obtain the genuine "Helmbold Buchu," the only pure and reliable preparation.

Avoid heating food ; most peo ple allow the palate to determine what they shall eat and how much, which, is as foolish as to let the family fire select such fuel as best pleases it gun powder, uitro-glycerlue, etc. Do not Increase your physical temperature, particularly that of your head, by drinking alcoholic beverages; when water does not suffice as a drink con sult your physician instead of a bar keeper. Use water internally with frequency; no one can get rid of. su perfluous heat through the skin, the pores of which are tightly sealed. If you have a great many cigars that ought to be smoked before they grow dry and tasteless, give them to your enemy, it is better that his liver be de ranged than yours, for a torpid liver induces a week hot head. At least once a day take excercise enough to cause free perspiration, the man who perspires most is always the coolest; the soldier on drill in woolen clothing under a hot sun, with the thermometer in the nineties, is more comfortable than the lounger in white linen, and sun umbrella who looks at him.

Sleep regularly and full hours, resisting the temptation to sit up late because the evening is the only cool part of the day. A hundred other suggestions might be offered, but the above, if followed, will enable many a heat-stricken mortal toimagiue that this is not so dreadfully hot a summer, after all. Ex. A correspondent at West field sends us an account of a terrible accident, last week, Monday, by which a little son of Wm. King was nearly killed. It seems that the boy's uncle hud slung a large -stick of timber under the hind axletree of a wagon, using the coupling as a lever to draw it up. They then stepped away to get a smal ler stick, leaving the reach or coupling resting on the timber. While they were gone the King boy and two of his cousins got upon the hind end of the timber and began springing it. This threw the reach back, and It came over with crushing force. It hit the boy a glancing blow on the head, laying the scalp open above the left temple nearly four inches and wide enough to receive one's two fingers. The skull was frac tured so that some of the brain oozed out. The left shoulder was hit and badly hurt and the wrist .dislocated. Dr. Reese, of Knoxvllle, was called, and he did everything possible for the little sufferer, and the boy is now in a fair way to recover. If the reach had hit the boy a direct blow, he must have been instantly killed. Tioga Agitator. ESTATE NOTICE. Estate of Jacob Schneider, late or tne Mown snip or xsenzinger, rJlk Co., Pa., deceased.

Wllllattioport Gazette ft Bulletin, Hist lilt A terrible accident occurred Tuesday afternoon near Weed's mill, six miles above Trout run. During the violent storm that prevailed in the afternoon, a number of mem took refuge in the barn of Daniel Moyer, at the point named. They had not been there long when lightning struck the build ing, Instantly killing James Bastiau and David Broslous, and stunning several of the other men. The barn was not much injured. As soon as possible after the terrible disaster, the bodies of the uhfortunate men were re moved to their homes. Bastian leaves a family, one of his daughters having been married to Broslous. LATER PARTICULARS. Since the publication in the evening edition of the Gazette and Bulletin of the terrible accident near Trout Run on Tuesday afternoon, resulting in the killing of two men by lightning, further particulars have been received. When the storm was observed to be approaching eleven men and a team of horses took refuge in a barn, and when the fatal bolt of lightning de scended ten of the men were prostrated. The eleventh man ws engaged in holding the horses, which kept him on his feet. One of the men knocked down was killed instantly, and another only breathing a few gasps after fall ing. The others were all more or less stunned, but escaped with their lives. The sad affair has caused a profound sensation in that neighborhood and it is the theme of conversation in all circles. house struck by lightning. The heavy wind and rain storm which struck the city Thursday after noon did considerable damage here as well as in the country. At Susque hanna, near the end of the Linden bridge, a dwelling house belonging to Mr. Simon Ballade, and occupied by his son Oliver, was struck by light ning and badly injured. Mrs. Sallade was alone in the house when the storm came up, and just as she was in the act of closing the door leading to the stairway the shock was felt, but for tunately, she sustained no injury. The bolt apparantly struck the east comb of the building', tearing off the cornice and shattering the studding. Not n weather board was left on the end of the building. When the bolt entered the ground the foundation wall was badly damaged. There was no insur ance on the building. RAVAGES IN THE CITY, Whilst no buildings werestrucklnthe city, as far as heard from, considerable damage was done to trees, shrubbery and vines by the wind. Something like a Kansas tornado oil a small scale entered the grounds of Hon. John B. Beck and completely demolished a line plum tree und a favorite Baldwiu apple tree. These trees were large and stout, having attained their full growth, but so strong was the whirl wind that they were literally torn up by the roots and thrown to one side. Other yards in the same neighborhood suffered more or less from the violence of the wind. At the residence of B. S Bcntley, jr., a beautiful Ivy or creep ing vine, which covered one entire side of the house, was completely torn from its fastensngs and dashed to the ground. PRANKS WITH A WHEELBARROW.
