Nearly five hundred persons have signed the pledge during the recent temperance meetings In Ridgway. During the past two or three days of rainy weather and consequent "lay ofT" among railroad men, Constable Woodward has reaped his usual har vest of victims of the flowing bowl. tev. A. J. Merchant, A. M. pastor of the Tth M. K. Church of Corry, l'a., will preach- In the M. E. Church of this place next Sunday morning and evening In exchange with the pastor. A Mead vl lie coal dealer under took to deliver a little over seventeen hundred pounds of coal for a ton, to one of his customers. The latter thinking that he was being victim ized, had the coal re-weighed, and sus picions were confirmed. The matter was finally com promised by the coal dealers fumisliing him a full ton of coal and $30 to let the matter drop. Moral don't cheat. The following good advice we glean from an exchange: "Girls, be ware of transient young men. Never fuller the addresses of a stranger; recollect that a steady farmer boy, or a mechanic is worth ail the floating tnshiii the world. The allurements of a dandy jack, with a gold chaiu nlxmt his neck, and a walking stick in his paw, some honest tailor's coat on his back, and a brainless skull, can never make up for the loss of a father's house and good mother's counsel, and the society of brothers and sisters; their tilled Ion will last, while those of a rich looking young niau arc lost in the wane of the honeymoon." Newspapers, says somebody, are valuable to material prosperity. They advertise tlie village, county or local ity. They spread before the leaders a map on which may be traced character, design, progress. If a stranger calls at a hotel ho first inquires for the vil lage newspaper; if a friend comes from a distance, the very first thing sifter a family greeting inquires for your village or county newspaper, and you feel discomfUted if unable to find a late copy, and confounded if you are compelled to say you do not take it. The newspaper Is just as necessary to tit a man for his true position lu life as food or raiment. Show us a ragged, barefoot boy rather than an ignorant one. His head will cover his feet in lifter years If he is well supplied with newspapers. Show us a child that Is eager for newspapers. He will make the man of mark iu after life if you gratify that desire for knowledge, Other things being equal, it is a rule that never fails. Give the children newspapers.

Dr. Theopllus Stewart Hartley, of this place, breathed his last in the 43d year of his life. He was born at Wool rich, Canada. He graduated in medi cine at theUnlversityof Bufluloin 1871 took the degree of B. A. at Victoria College May 2, 1800; the degree of M. A. at the same college May 0, 1880. since 1870 he has practiced medicine in Ridgway and was known not only here but was extensively acquainted in adjoining counties. The Sunday be fore he died he sang at Mrs. Dan Reeds funeral, and was only confined to the house from Monday until his death. Deceased was a member of the Masonic order at this place, was a member and President of the Irish National Land League, and also a member and President of the Equit able Aid Union. The funeral services were held lu the M. E. Church on Sunday afternoon, Rev. S. M. Clark, delivered the funeral sermon. The church was crowded whilescores were unable to gain admission. The re mains were followed to their last place by the largest number of people -ever at a funeral in Ridgway. The exer cises at the grave were by the Ma sonic fraternity. J. D. Fullerton, Dentist, hasadded a great convenience to his ofllce in the shape of a White swinging chart witli iron frame and adjustable head-rest and patent foot-rest. With this new chair tooth-pulling will hereafter be a pleasure and without pain. Fullerton is an cntetprising dentist and keeps up with the times. "Miss Belle McClintock of Mcad ville sustained her reputation with the Krie people. The lady's voice posesses an extraordinary compass and is the soul of all thai is beautiful iu the human voice. In the choruses it soared above the rolling tides of harmony like the flight of a lark on a clear morning's sky and paramount to all." Erie Uvrald. . The Kansas method of winding up tiie affairs of a broken bank by threat ening to wind up the banker appears at least to be very effective. Accord ing to the face value of the assets turned over by Danforth to his credit ors to escape being hung, the deposit ors In his bank will get back every dollar they were supposed to have lost. The Kansas method is not to be recom mended, but there is this to be said iu defence of it, that if the administra tion of justice in all courts was as prompt and certain as it ought to be, nobody would think of resorting to violent means to obtain the same results. A fearful explosion of nitro-glyeer-ine occurred at one of Roberts Co.'s magazine at Kin.ua Junction, twelve miles from Bradford, on Monday, Dee. 5. About l.L'lo pounds of nitro-gly-cerine wei;o in the magazine. The earth trembled Ifcs if shaken by un earthquakt. The forest, covering at least three acres in the vicinity, was laid low, and houses at Kin.uu nearly shaken from their foundations. Win dows were broken half a mile distant A steel safe was blown into minute fruuiuents. No one was injured. The origin of the explosion is a mystery, but is supposed to have been spontan eous. The permanganate of potash is inexpensive, and besides, is healthy, as it is tlu; same stuff that is used to disinfect. About two ounces of it, mixed with water, is enough to stain a good sized room. Don't get it on your hands unless you wish to stain them too. Put on a pair of old gloves. Use a whitewashcr's brush without a handle, of course, for the whole floor, and a paint brush for the corners. Mix the permanganate in a bucket of water. When it is first applied it is a bright crimson, but it Immediately turns brown. After the first cor.t is dry you can put on another until you get the shade desired. When you are satisfied leave it to harden for a day or two, and then dissolve some beeswax in turpentine and polish it over. A few applications will give a line pol ish. Where to Study Music. Pittsburgh Conservatory. 100 FULL MUSIC LKSSOXS FOK f 18. As many usually devote the winter after the holidays to the study of Music, and as broad and through cul ture is desired by the majority, we feel that we are doing them a good favor by calling their attention to the ad vantages offered by the Pittsburgh Conservatory. The Conservatory is conducted on the plan of the best Con servatories of Europe, and instruction given iu Music, both as a Science and an Art. Eleven accomplished teach ers are employed, embracing men of rare ability und experience, and one hundredall It axons arc yivea for eighteen dollars. Upwards of twenty instruments are iu daily use, includ ing "the largest and best (hand Organs for educational purposes in America " The Conservatory is con nected with the Pittsburgh Female College, aud music pupils can devote spare time, if they desire to do so, and at little additional expense, to solid studies, or to elocution, drawing, painting, modern languages, &c. They also have the advantage of the many couccrts, orators, &c-, given each year in the city. For catalogue and full information address Rev. I. C. Pershing, D. D., Pittsburgh, l'u. The Bethlehem Times says a pho tographer in that town displays in his window a picture of a farmer and his wife and fifteen children. That is a group to rejoice the heart of a patriot.

Temperance, and nothing hut tem perance do we hear of hite, It in con tinually ringing In or ears. Blue ribbons are to be seen too on the col lars of nearly every iimu and child we meet.. It Is a good thing no doubt to be temperate. It is undoubtedly on excellent virtue, and i uni in favor of lic cause. It is certainly good for those whose appetite Is Insatiable once they taste the soul-inspiring drug. I never heretofore thought there were so many of this class in Ridgway. I never thought the ladles of our town needed the restraining .influence of a pledge. Too bad, there are so many ladies and gentlemen ..whose appetite for stimulating beverages is so. uu nianagable as to require the curb! We will henceforth, I am sure, have u sober town. No more drunken men and women. I believe temperance is also good for some young men who may be exposed to the danger of con tracting the opposite vice. Our land lords also prolit by it; the converted bummers now pay as they go for fear they may be exposed, liut the ques tion arises in my mind, are we all obliged to sign pledges? Must all be bound to be temperate? Does the Divine or human law oblige us to bo absolutely temperate? I have read the Scriptures from cover to cover, from Genesis to the Apocalypse, and can find the moderate uhh. of wine no where condemned. On the contrary, St. Paul tells us, "a little wine is good for the stomach." 1 have never found any obligation iu the hutii.-ui or Divine laws to be totally temperate. Does science condemn the use of stimulant? Fur from it, on the con trary, wiucasu restorative, us a means of refreshment, where man has to struggle witli days of trial and sor row; us a means of correction anil compensation where disproportion occurs iu nutrition; und us it protec tion against trunslcntorganic disturb ances, is surpassed by no product of nature or of art. Why then this con tinual begging and urging (bordering on compulsion iu many cases) of all indiscriminately, young and old, to bind themselves by u pledge? Muny indeed know not the nature of the obligation they are about to contract, or have contracted. To many 1 be lieve u pledge should not be given for the simple reason that they are too weak-wil.ed to persevere in its fulfil ment. It is su serious an obligation t hilt no man should bind himself by it except ul'ter careful uiut cool dclib erutiuH. It should then not be taken iu a state of excitement. The length of time for which a person binds him self or herself shoull be expressly understood, it should never be given to children not having arrived at the age of reason, for tliey understand not the iititure of the obligation, and to administer it to such Is mi outrage on common Chriniiuu decency. How many of the latter class have signed the pledge of lute in Ridgway? While 1 admire the virtue and the motive L believe they mean good) I must condemn lliu modus operandi of our late crusaders. The though sometimes arises in my mind, having constantly heard noth ing but temperance lulcly, that it is all that Christianity has to otter poor suf fering humanity, th.it temperance is iu fact Christianity, body aud soul, root and branch. Are there uot other virtues that would make up as bright a gem iu a mortal's crown as temper ance? Are there not other vices as sin I ul and wicked as intemperance? Why uot raise a crusade aguiiisl blasphemy, iutidclity, divorce, and immorality, which latter is for a well known fact, sapping the very iil'u's blood of society aud tilling our lunatic asylums with inmates. 1 make this assertion above board, aud without fear of contradiction, with great profit too, there might be a crusade raised against injustice, and probably we would not have so many bank robber ies, &c, by which thousands of poor, industrious people, are swindled out of their hard-eurued savings. A great many of those who have defrauded the poor by downright robbery were high up in some good temperance christian union. As long as a man is uot deprived of his memory, will or understanding he may drink all he pleases aud never violate the laws of God. A'o so with other vices. The slightest act of blasphemy, of injustice, of immorality or infidelity to marriage vows, Ac, &c, is a direct sin against Ood, and in many instances so grave that it cries to Heaven for vengeance. Why not raise a crusade against those vices. Witness the number of applications for divorce ail over the country, on ac count of, in most cases, infidelity to marriage vows, and this too, by par ties pretending to be christians, mem hers of some good church, and prob ably temperate people, wearing blue ribbons, who would send a man to perdition for taking u glass of beer. This looks a little 2harisalcul to say the least. Towns and cities rotten to the core with other vices and no cru sude ugainst them. Intemperance, though a very wicked sin, has never brought a curse from God on the whole human family, but immorality lias, as iu the case of the destruction of the cities of Sodom ami Uomoruh. It often seems to me thai; this temper ance move Is gotten ilp for worldly motives because the vice Interferes with worldly happiness and not be cause it is offensive to God. Hope I am mistaken, liut I generally hear of the misery brought on by intem perance, and seldom of the offense or injury done to God. If the motive be domestic happiness and uot glory and honor of God,,then it is not Christian ity, but inuterialism. The preacher too makes the price of his bitters out of the movement, and iu a few years retires from business, its post experi ence shows. . . With due respect for Major Scott, who I think is a gentleman aud means well, I cannot refrain from asking, Have we not good christian ministers In our town that have been tried in the Held and found faithful, that can preach temperance aud all other christian virtues? Are these minis ters not capable of teaching us our religious duties without importing n layman and a stranger. I find In the good book that no man can preach except properly and lawfully sent and that women especially were positively told by St. Paul to be silent In church. Rut readers I do not wish to be mis represented. I am in favor of temper' ance In many cases, as I have shown In the commencement of this article. I nni strongly opposed, from a relig ious standpoint, to getting up excite ments and urging and begging all to Join without proper deliberation. I would say in conclusion, that if we teach our children, aud all others under our care or Influence, the prin ciples of morality aud justice, &c; If we teach them to have a conscience by Instructing them in the belief ofa future state of reward and punish ment; In a word, if wc tench them Christianity as taught by the Savior and contained In the good book, we shall have little trouble iu making our rising generation temperate, if not teetotalers, aud in every sense virtuous. To u man having no faith or belief in the teaching of Christianity, it is a mockery to give a pledge, for he has no conscience, and therefore will not keep it. For these reasons I am op imsed to these temperance movements, where pledges are indiscriminately administered to young and old, chris tian and infidel, &c. Such a proce dure is an injury aud insult to religion and can therefore result In no good, us time will prove aud experience lias proved. C. C. ELK CO. ADVOCATE RATES. VKAItl.Y ADVKKTISINO.
