Injunction Dissolved.
The ease of the Xew York, Lake
Krie and Western Coal and Railroad
Company for an injunction against
the PittsDurgli ami Xew York ltail
road Company was argued on Monday
last before Hon. Win. D. Brown at
Warren. The injunction was dis
solved by the court and a rule to show
cause granted why a perpetual in
junction should not be made against
the Plaintiffs in this ease. The news
that the injunction had been dissolved
reached Ridgway about 2 o'clock in
the afternoon and in a few minutes
thereafter the gangs of graders were
again busily at work. A large force
of workmen will be at once put on
the line of road between Ridgway and
Johnsouburg, and the grading pushed
with vigor.
Child Run Over.
Tuesday morning ubout 8 o'clock.
Rosa Titus, a boy between 7 and H
years old, was run over and seriously
injured, about opposite the old school
house. His mother Mrs. William
Titus, who belongs in Ellenville,
Ulster Co., X. Y., baa been for several
weeks visiting her father Case Stewart
who lives in the old school house.
Michael O'Connor, Jr. was driving
along with a load of sand, and had
stopped to take on a boy who was
going to ride to the tannery, and on
Marling did not notice that ltosa was
hanging on the side of the wagon. As
the wagon was turning to leave the
plank road In the direction of M. .
Leaser's new tenement houses, the boy
fell and the hind wheel of the heavily
loaded wagon passed over his breast.
Fortuuately he fell at the outer edge of
the plunk road in a hollow, and was
not ground to powder as he would
have been had he fallen on the plank.
Dr. Hartley was called and said no
bones were broken. Hopes are en
tertained of his recovery. The prac
tice of jumping on wagons while in
motion is a very Lad one and parents
should see to it that their children
stop the dangerous habit.

If you have a big account to audit
take it to the book-keeper at the
Largest Retail. He is pretty good in
figures, and will figure any account
from five to teu eents, but look out for
the mistakes. Tlio reason why the
New York Store is so neat and clean
is that the clerks when not busy sell
ing goods ure cleaning up the store.
At the Largest Retail when the clerks
are not busy instead of cleaning up the
store they Jay back on their oars in the
corners and eat crackers and cheese.
The first thing you discover on going
to tli" Largest Retail is a big dog, but
no clerks. They are too busy mow
ing away crackers and cheese to wait
on customers. For bargains go to the
New York Store.
Sudden Death.
N. V. Lent, a one-armed soldier,
died suddenly Saturday night at the

in Thk Advocatk office on Saturday
afternoon and hud two packs of visit
ing cards printed for his two little
nieces, daughters of O. W. Gurduer.
He lost his arm in the service of his
country and drew a pension from the
government. At the age of 62 years,
3 months aud 7 days, he dropped
asleep to wake no more forever. The
funeral took place on Wednesday
morning.
The Man Who Waim't Killed by a
Catamount.
The Minor of last week contained
the account of the killing of L. Pal
miter in the wilds of Hamilton town
ship, HiIh county, by a catamount,
on the 2Hth of June last. Other pa
pers have copied the article from our
cotemporary and the Bradford Era of
Tuesday has shown commendable (?)
eutcrprise by going into the details of
the a flair aud giving a lenghty and
blood curdling account of the encoun
ter between Mr. l'almlter and the
catamount; and tells of the finding of
the dead man's body by his brother.
We don't know how the Era and
Miner gained their information but
we have positive proof that Mr.
Palmiter is not dead, but still living
in Hamilton township and expresses
in readiness to fight, all the catamounts
that McKean county can scare up.
It is true he killed what he called a
lynx a few weeks ago, while watching
a deer lick and the animal made a
spring at li f 111 but by the means of his
trusty rifle and unerring aim the ani
mal dropped dead at his feet witli a
ball through its brain. He didn't re
ceive a scratch. The party who gave
our eotemporarics the information
published by them either had a very
lively information or was desirious of
gelling up an exciting sensution.

' New York, J uly 25, 1 88 1 .
Dear Editok: While visiting
Bidgway the other day 1 slopped be
fore what looked a liltle like a dry
goods and grocery store, next door to
the watchmaker. When I went inside
1 found it wait intended to be a store,
but concluded that the windows
hadn't seen water since they were
washed by the big flood of ISISI.
The clerks looked worse than the
windows, covered with buckwheat,
beans, and molasses. I am certain
that I was in the (fraud Buckwheat,
instead of in a dry goods store. I saw
three clerks, hut they made about one
and a half. I went down to the post
office and found a real dry goods store
next door, and it looked more like a
city store than any other in town.
I advise all my friends to buy their
dry goods, and clothing, at the dry
goods store in the post-office block,
where everything looks neat and
clean, kept in first-class style, and
where every one is waited on by gen
tlemanly and experienced salesmen.
Good bye,
T. G., New York.
Judge Pearson at Harrisburg on
Tuesday last filed his opinion in the
legislature mandamus case. This case
is an application for a writ of man
damus upon State Treasurer Butler, to
compel him to pay to members of the
legislature ten dollars per day for the
extra fifty days of service at the last
session of t he legislature, the applica
tion being made under authority of a
special act passed at that session.
Last winter Attorney General Palmer
rendered an opinion that the portion
of the act of May 11, 1874, which pro
vides for an extra per diem compen
sation violates the constitution, which
provides simply for a salary. A test
case was made by members of the
legislature in the case of Representa
tive Charles S. Wolfe. A committee
was appointed to take charge of the
case and money raised to pay expen
ses. The opinion of Judge Pearson
sustains the Attorney General. The
next step will be to carry the case to
the Supreme Court.
Lessens to Girl Graduates.
An Ohio paper says that a young
lady who graduated in a calico dress a
few years ago is now married to u rail
road superintendent who has an in
come of half a million a year. This
may be taken as a basis for the regu
lation of graduating dresses hereafter.
Had she worn alpaca slio might have
done even belter, and caught the
general manager of the road. On
the other hand, hud she bloomed
forth in white Swiss she might have
captured the president of the concern
with his untold millions, while had
she worn silk, with point lace aud
diamonds, she might have scooped in
the conductor of n passenger train,
aud had onyx staircases and alabaster
stairs to her house, and cut the wives
of the officers of the road as society
altogether too thin for her style. The
thing ought to be a lesson to girl
graduates aud a sharp warning to
patronize their tailors liberally.

A force of one hundred and fifty
