Dr. C R. Earley was fifty-eight years of ageon Sunday May 1, 1S81.

May the geuial hearted Doctor yet celehrate many anniversaries of his adveut into this wicked world. Last Monday a three-year-old child of Frank Marshal, who lives across the bridge at Eagle Valley, had a narrow escape from Injury. A young man named Akers fired at a duck from a Wluehester rifle, the bell glanced on the water, struck a stone, from which the child had just arisen, and landed in the open door-way of Mr. Marshal's house a few feet from the stone. The man who fired the gun was forty rods from where the ball struck. $606.51 This iuu is just the ruouut Elk county is obliged to pay through the unwarranted blundering of Dis trict Attorney Wurssell. In the Ilau murder case ut Centrevilie the District Attorney took on himself the respon sibility, under cover of a certain act of Assembly which places great power ln( Irresponsible bauds, to engage a private detective to ferret out the perpetrators of the murder at the Ilau brewery last July. The private detective presents his bill for the amount which heads this article The court under the act of Assembly approves the hills for there are three of them, they are certified to the county commissioners who have no discretion in the matter and issue or der to the amount of the bills. From a first glance at the case it seems that this money is lost to the county though tliestupidty or offlciousness of that worthy official the District Attorney.

A ral'tman mimed Christ Frank houser, whose home is near Cur wens ville, and a river policeman, named Decker, got into an altercation about a raft at Lock Haven on Saturday last, which resulted In Frankhouser striking the policeman on the head with a heavy club causing serious in juries. Frankhouser was arrested and is in jailat Lock Haven. It appears that Frankhouser had a raft tied, and the policeman wanted him to move it farther down. This Frankhouser re fusen lo do. The policeman picked up an ax and was about cutting the rope, when the former pic'ted up a piece of a lash-pole and struck Decker on the head and the result may prove fatal. Clearfield R p ublican. If Clarendon has readied the cli max of its greatness it is owing in part to the high price of oil territory in the vicinity, the low price of oil urn! the rates charged for town lots. II iuli prices for properly an 1 a low rice for nil is having its effect. A radical change in this respect may start C'arendnn to booming again, or rather curry the boom along. Opera tions were more active during the winter months than since spring opened. But these things will correct themselves. Property owners some times have to learn some tilings, and those in and about Clarendon are learning. Warren Lttfair. Torpedo shooters will hardly ap predate the e'ulwriite care taken by (he Russian conspirators to ensure the explosion of the bomb that killed the C.ar. It was a tin cylinder, six indies long and three in diameter, containing about a quart of nitro glycerine. Down tiie centre was a copper tube, filled with Bertholet's salt and anti mony, and through this ran a glass tube, hermetically sealed, containing sulphuric acid. A leaden weight was so placed as to break the gluvt tube when the bomb struck. The flame occasioned by the contact of the sul pliuric add with Bertholet's sa't passed by a small channel lo a cat rldge with a fulminating composition at the hed and gun cotton lielow. The fulminate fired the gun cotton and tiie explosion of the gun cotton ignited the nltro-glyeercne with which the cylinder was charged. All this rigmarole would seem senseless to a moonlighter, who would lie apt to in sist that if there was a quart of nitro glycerine in the bomb that would be enough to throw, ami it would nevd no fulminate to explode it. The mis sic would weigh about four pounds. Bradford Sunday jVcic. For a good assortment of OUss ware go to Powell k Kime.s.

HIS SPEECH BRFOKR TIIR SIOUX COM MON COUNCIL. (Oil City Denlok.) The following speech of Sitting Bull has been translated and reported by our Indian editor, who Is also whole Hale and retail dealer In deceased lan guages, and general agent for home made Sioux rhetoric and amok-tan ned Indian eloquence. New laid In dian laments with head trimmings. Compiler of novel and desirable styles of war-dances. Indian eloquence furnished to debating clubs and pub lishers of school readers. "Warriors and war-scarred veterans of the frontier. Once more the war path Is over grown with bunch grass, ami the tomahawk slumbers in the wigwam of the red man. Grlm-visaged war has given place to the piping times of peace. The cold and cruel winter is upon us. It lias been upon us for some time. The wail of departed spirits is on the nlaht wind, and the wail of the chilblain answers back from the war rior's eigwam. Children of the forest, we are few. Where once tiie shrtll earhoof tin c!deft:in collected our tribe lihe the leaves of tiie forest, I might now yell till the cows come home without bringing out a quorum. We are f.dtnj a stay before the maroli of the p !e.".cc, and sinking into oblivion like the snowSeke on the bonom of tiie Stinking Water. Warriors, I ;,n the last of a mighty race. We were a race of Chieftains, Alas! ec eill soon begone. The Buil family will soon pa from the face ol the earth. Ole is gone. John is fail ing, and I don't feel very well myself. We are the victims of the paleface, and our Uuds are taken away. A few more suns and the civiliza tion ami valley tan, and hand-made sour mash, an I horse liniment of the paleface wi.l nave done their deadly work. Our squaws and papooses are scat tered to the four winds of heaven, and we are left desolate. Where is Tlie-Daughter-of-llic- Tempest? Where is the Wall-Eyed Maiifen-With-the-Peeled-Nose? YV litre is ictoria Regina Die Gar cia Sitting Bail? fv'liero is KnocK liuecd Chemiloon? Where is Sway back Sue and Meek-Eyed Govern ment Socks? They have sunk beneath the tire water of tiie gogalcd eyed Caucasian. They have succumbed to the de- liriiim triangles, and whn I call them they come not. They do not bear my voice. Their moans are heard upon the still niiht air, and they cry for revenge. Look at the .sail remnant of tiie family of Silling Bull, your chief. One sore-t ed squaw is left alone, lier face is furrowed o're with the famine of iu iiiy wi'ifers, ami her nose is only the ruin of its former great ness. Her moccasins lire worn out, and the soldier pants she wears are t o long for her. She also, is drunk. She is not us drunk as she can get, bui she is hopeful and persevering. bbc lias also learned to lie like a whkc iiin. She is now an easy, extem poraneous Ii.tr. When we gather about the camp fire and enact our tin tutored lies iti the gloaming. Lueivtia Borgia Skowhegan Sitting Bull, with the inspiration of six lingers of agency collinv.-iriiish, proceeds to tell the pr xe prevarication, and then the house adjourns, and nothing ca:i be iieard but the inullUd tread of the ageney coin beef going out to get some fresh air. Lucretia Borgia is also becoming slovenly. It is even ing, and yet she lias not donned her evening l resa. Her back hair is un kempt, and her front is unhung. Pretty soon I will take a tamaliawk ai:d bang it for her. She seems des pondent and hopeless. As she leans against the trunk of a mighty oak and scruti hes her back, you can see that her thoughts are far away. Her other suspender is gone, hut she don't care a cold smooth clam. She is think ing of her childhood days by the banks of the Minnehaha. Warriors we stan iu the moccasins of a iniahty nation. We represent the starving remnant of a once powerful Sioux. Our pirogue stands idly on tiie shore. I don't know what a pirogue is, but it stands idly on the shore. When the spring flowers bloom again, and the grass is green upon the plains, we will once more go upon the war-pat h. We will avenge the wrongs of our nation. I have not fully glut ted my vengeance. I have seven or eight more gluts on hand, and we will shout our war-ciy once more, and mutilate some more Anglo Saxons. We will silence the avenging cries of our people. We will spatter the green grass and gray greasewood with the gore of the paleface, and feed the white-livered emigrants to the coyote. We will spread death and desolation everywhere, and fiil the air with gum overshoes und remains. Let us yield up our live dearly while we mush the paleface beyond recognition, and shoot his idred man so full of holes that he will look like a suspension bridge. Warriors there Is our hunting ground. The buffalo, the antelope, the sage hen and the jackass rabbit are ours. Ours to enjoy, ours to per petuate, ours to transmit. The Great Spirit created these animals for the red man, and not for the bilious tour ist, between whose legs the chestnut sunlight penetrates clear up to his collar bone. Then we will ride down on the reg ular army, when he is thinking of soniethiug else, and we will scare him into convulsions, and our medicine men will attend to the convulsions while we sample the supplies. Then we will take some cold 6lieed Indian agent, and some bay rum, and go on picnic. Warriors farewell. Be virtuous and you will bo happy; but you will be lonesome sometimes. Think of what I have said to you about the council lire, and govern yourselves accord ingly. We will not murmur at the celluloid cracker and oust Iron codfish ball, but In the spring we will have veal cutlets for break IHst, and peace commissioner on toast for dinner. The squaw of Sitting Hull shall have a new p!u j hut, and if the weather is severe, she snail have two of them. Warriors farewell. I nnt done. I have spoken. I have nothing more to Sic semper domino.
