A Missouri boy of twelve, who, with hia brother, was whipjuxl by hie athcr for quarreling, conceived that hid father laid the p.fcip on to him rather the hardest, instead of giving ?l share and share alike. He ac xxjrdingly waited his opportunity, land when his father's attention, was otherwise occupied, the boy brought the family shotgun to bear upon him, Kind shot him dead. ll'm defence was that his father had given liihi la worse thrashing than his brother, and that he had not intended to If ill him, but only to hurt him and teach him a lesson. The jury found the boy guilty of murder in the first degree. The (j'uestion which sug gests itself is what ought to lie done with such a boy. lie committed Hjurdcr with intelligent motive and in cold fcld'od. At his trial he showed neither regret nor fear-, aiid seemed utterly unconscious of the serious character of the proceeding?. His extrehtti youth may be plead in ex cuse for this, but indifference to the issue is not characteristic of boys of twelveon trial for even petty ollcnses. H is evidently one of that class who are entirely wanting in moral sense. (Juiteau was such a one. The crim inal courts are every little hile turn ing up specimens of humanity who commit crimes habitually, but with the smallest appreciation of their criminality. It is idle to think of Jninihhingsuch men; the only resource Ifl toplsce them whore they can do no further harm : and if murder is the crime their best place is on the gallows. Unless the Governor in terferes, this Missouri boy, who used a shotgun to teach his father a lesson, will have to banc If he should be pardoned and subsequently released, there is but little doubt that Ins lirst rinie will sooner of later be fol lowed by a secondj yet every humane instinct revolts at the idea 01 hang ing a boy of twelve, and the general judgment outside of Missouri would certainly be that the lad should only be placed under restraining and re formatory influences.

He was unconscious, but when brought to, told this story ' My name is George Itinglanri. I work at butchering for Mr. Walfogle in Etna.

The Franklin Bank failure affords the latest demonstration of the folly of over confidence in the honesty ol bank cashiers. The allurements of oil speculation proved too much for Mr. Craft, and there being no cola borer sufficiently versed in the affairs of the bank to act as a check upon its cashier, the latter squandered its resources until the magnitude of the shortage, which it ultimately became impossible to conceal, brought his misdeeds to light. The defalcation of a bank cashier always produces a profound sensa tion, particularly in a small com munity where, everyone knows every body else. 11 U remarked as an aggravation of the situation that the defaulting officer had hitherto borne an unblemished reputation, and that everybody trusted him implicitly. 1 hat is exactly the class ot men who alone have opportunities to embezzle funds. Those whose characters are smirched, or whose manner and 1 methods do not inspire confidence, are not usually entrusted with the handling of other people's money to any great extent. Those who have once committed a breach of an im portant trust rarely haVe a second opportunity. It is, therefore, only those whom no body suspects and everyone speaks well of that have it in their power, like Cashier Craft, to misappropriate $100,000 of funds entrusted to their care before their irregularities are brought to light. The shareholders of this bank who will have to meet this loss, are not specially entitled to sympathy. The example of scores of similar defalca tions all teaching the same lesson of the evil of the one-man power in bank management was before them, but they gave it no heed. No man should be exposed to the temptation which the uncontrolled charge of a bank's assets brings. . The person so trusted sooner or later begins to think that he sees art bpportunity for certain profit to himself and no risk to the bank, and as there is no one to note the temporary withdrawal of the money, enters upon a course of speculation. Maybe lie can re turn his money and nothing is said. More often a final day of reckoning comes, when the bank's funds are found to be short far in excess of the cashier's ability. to repay. Thecdrh munity is shocked, the peace and reputation of an honored household is gone, and often there is caused widespread loss and misery among those who committed the saving of a lifetime to the bank whose cashier was so thoroughly trusted that no supervision was maintained over him. The Franklin failure is like a . hun dred others, only that the loss will fall upon those who can best bear Cathp "Reynolds. '-' j -Lewlstown, Pa., Aug.. 4, Left Rldgway at 5 o'clock, Thurs dry afternoon, Aug. 8, 1882, weTDt by P. A E., to Suftbury j thence by if. C. to Hnrrisburg; thence by Pe'nn, main line to Lewlstown. Arrived at Lewis town at 8:30 Friday morning. We went by the Erie Mail to Hnrrisburg. From Harrisburg, Co. H went down the main line to Lewlstown on an emigrant car. Arriving on the ground at Camp Reynolds, we found that we were considerably ahca&of time, as the tents were scarcely ready to re ceive the company; the company officers' tents were not ready, but it was not long ere ('aptain llorton and Lieuts. Wood war J, aud Bailey were busy as nailers. In a short time the olllcers' tents were ready. Very little duty was done the first day in camp. At night a patrol guard brought tiie boys in from town (those that came not in by the rear way-u,,d they weie many, This wo know, speaking from experience.) A tiYaii from the 12th Regt., fell off from a high bridge down a ragged embankment, and landed on some rocks below consider ably confused aa to dates and circum stances.

Saturday second day in cainp.really the first day W duty. A number ol regiments arrived this morning. Ami by noon the entire Guard bad biv- ouaced at Camp Rcyirolds. Here I must say that the scene from the parade ground, facing I'ewistown, looking to the west, is one of pleasant beauty, arriving almost to grau'dure in its rag ged pi'cturesquenuss. To the right, far as the eye can setr, may be seen hill, hacked by higher and still higher lulls, until far away iu the distance the top of distant mountain ranges seem almost to touch the clouds. The hills are dotted with farms, iu the fore ground, while at the rear a dense green verdure covers the hill side?. To the left we see alino-t a counterpart of the scenery to the right, with the differ ence that more farms and less rugged aspect treet the eye. Between the right and loft arid at the foot of the hills nestles in Iho valley of the blue Juniata, the borough of Lewlstown with its beautiful homes, well kept yards, interesting cemeteries, and in many places tumble-down palaces. The streets are not in good condition, cows, hogs, aud geese run at their own sweet wiil, and in some quarters of the borough the stench from the lui ietio uuJ ttliir ilo.im of liltli 1 enough to make a christian wisli lie were a wild, untutored savage on the wild plains of the west where could be secured a little bret'th Of fresh air. The court bouse, yes the court houset t wo story brick structure with low celling, and dirty tiwrs, one of the most sloven ly kept court houses we have ever visit ed, and iucoiiiparsion with our imjios iug and neatly kept Elk county court house, would stand as one to a thousand. The beer here (the boy. say) is miserable, and i oil 1.1 do to feed the many beautiful swine that roam the the streets of the ti'wn, or it might be utilized to turu oii the dirty lloo'r of the court bouse. The water of the place (this wC speak of from ex perience.) is lit obly for wash lug feet, but for drinking purposes, rccommehd me to some other liquid other than Lewlstown water. We were in oneof the cemeteries here, aud it seems that everybody and his wife were dead and hurried i u this particular place of tile dead. Iu one place nine tombstones, standing side by bide, recorded the lat place of a man, bis wife; and seven children. Iu many other places, men and their wives were hurried side by side, aud in one place a mail with a wife on either skle, has taken his plaee among the citizens of this quiet city of the dead: This day, Saturday, the regular routiue was gone through with. At ten o'clock, Company G, of Erie, the next company to II in Hue of tents held an election for Captain to till the vacancy occasioned by the promo tion of ('apt. Frank M.

He can sell oil short knowing that when il Is known that a new field has been flisco'vered the prick Will go down."

So be guards bis secret with every appl'ance he can in vent. His most d.ugerous enemies are the "scouts " Tfaey wre paid to discover what he Is trying to conceal. Almost every prumhicut oil broker hiis a ''scout" regulur.y employed to : ki'ep him posted 'on lie latest doings at the front. During, cautious, pati ent untiring, unscrupulous, and hon est, the scout must adi to the experi ence of a driller the subtle judgment of a broker a'n'd the keeAness of au operator. In the shadfwsof the night he earns his salary lur'iing about in the neighborhood of a new well out of gunshcittf ll'ie guards ahout the der rick ; lying often in the snow or iu the swamp for hours with 1 is nose and ears stretched above tl.e shelter of some friendly log to catch the smell of gas or the gurgle of flowing oil; sneaking up to the tank house to 'get a peep ill IT possible ; watching the motion of the walking beam aud esti mating the depth of the Tools thereby ; ready to bribe the driller or exchange shots with a guard at n moment s no tice, i He sometimes spends weqhs Watch-' ing one particuhiV (veil.

In the course of an experienoi meeting the other evening with Cp tain Peter Grace, one of the men wh put down thetihi well In this districi, he told me the true story of- the mys tery. Much has beeii written about it, more probably than Was ever print ed about uu oil well before, but the captain told me a few things which were new. This wonderful Cherry Grove district owes its development to the misfortune of George II. Dim mick. lie had been Wrecked tlnaiicially over in the Coal creek region, and Captain Grace set bim to work out this way rather to lve him a chance to recover than from any other motive. Land could be leased lor a dollar an acre, Hiij tha experi ment was not very costly. "When the tools broke through the t-hell of the sand about IU o'clock on the morning on the 11th of March," said Captain Grace, "we kneW we bad found wealth. The oil filled up a hundred feet before we could get the tools out. The pressure on us was tremendous. We drove A tiglil-iUtiug wooden plug 3J feet loug to the bottom of the well, poured the hole full of oil, screwed in tl'e citsiug bead, and set the tools, Miich weigh not less than a ton) on top of it- Even then when the well flowed it blew the casing bead off and sent the tdc'ls a flying up the derrick. "One trick we played to deceive the scouts I think has never got iuto print; I took a toredo man into a room iu the hotel at Warren one day very mysteriously, but took good care to have a scout see nte tlo It.

We went to the Well in the dead of night,, and there went through the fornl of shooting the well so accurately that even the guards about the well were deceived. .The next morning they complained that the . smell of the dynamite had given them the lfetul ache.

A Washington tpaper Vvuntnins a sensational report Ilia's an invention of startling significance and import ance lias just been patented. The in vention consists of piling up layers of light upon each other by means of mirrors and producclng intense beat. One who observed 'the process says: "In less Miflrt 3 seconds a till ti. curl ing puff" of smoke gave evidence of the progress ot the experiment, In a minute the board was bursting out In flames. The focus was then shifted upon the line. In a few moments it began to turn color, as if anxious to get away where it was cooler, and then, in less I ban three minutes, the entire surface covered by the focus was literally ineltirf, crop by drop. To melt zinc it requires a temperature of 700 decrees Fahrenheit." An offici al of the patent flioce whose opinion was asked as to the importance of this invention spoke eWnYewhat disre- snectfullV of It ubd ald: "The use of mirrors, both curved and flat, to ac cumulate and concentrate the sun's rays, is about as 6 I'd h's tue sun itself.

What will we do with Mother, i An exchange asks this question, ami we hasten to answer it. If she is old and worn out and Vou haven't a brother living on an unhealthy farm, you could chloroform her; but tlieti, she might come to -some time and make you trouble; , If it was in the good old times, you cculd' Bell her at auction to the highest bidder. If you, have no obscure relatives you can 6hove her off on, and she has been so imprudent and reckless os to. run through with all her means in order to benefit her :hildren,you can send fer to the Old Ladies', re-. fuge or the poorhouse. But iheic a drawback to the latter; people have a contemptible way of talking about affairs that do not concern them, and if you are only comfort ably well off' arid have" a mother in the poorhouse, tfiey will insinuate that you have no feeling, and make unpleasant remarks. But if you are worth $75,000, it is all right; go ahead. Whot is a mother worth to you after you are brought up and can go alone anyhow? Old people are only iu the way. To be sure there are some ridiculous people who will talk. Wncie are their mothers? Cooking doughnuts in the basement k'tchen or minding the baby iu the third story back attic. It is money in their pockets to utilize her in this way. What shall we do with mother? You can't bury her alive! Public prejudice would b ftainst you. It is a problem, come to think of it. A worn-out, superanuated mother! A useless, toiling, , complaining mother! A weary, querulous, tot tering, old-fashioned mother! Hum ! We know what we would do with her were she ours. She would have the best room in the house if there were only one room she should have that the softest, bed, the easiest chair. 6hc should have shelter, food, warmth', and love! She should have respect, tenderness, patience that would in some faint measure try to repay her boundless devotion to a crying, red-nosed, ill-tempered brat of years ago a devotion; that lasted through all the way ward years of a disagreeable, presumptuous youth. Kvery furrow in her dear old face should be snored to riein'ory. Every cracked and wheezy tone of her dear old voice should have the ring of music in it, and if ever our uglv carnal nature got the uper hand of us we should look into her faded eyes and think how short the time, ven at it very longest-, when we could no more ask her forgiveness, or hear it from lips that would then be silent forever.
