The I'mveksal Verdict of all who
have used or witnessed the operation of the
Domestic Sewing Machine, is that it ia the
lest ever ottered in the market.
It lacks none of the rimkI qualities of oth
er machines, and its range of capacity is
trmv wonderful.
e would call the attention of all in
want of a lirst-class machine to the adver
tisement of the Domestic in another column.

The justice of the verdict rendered by
the public years ago in favor of the Mexi
can Mustang Liniment must be apparent
to all w ho have used that famous prepara
tion or se'n it used. Its healing influence
is irresistible. The most olislinate forms
of ncuraldc or rheumatic disease are total
ly cured by it, and that in an inconceivably
'short space 01 time. External injuries or
! sores, whether of man or lieast, as well as
all equine or human maladies tor winch a
liniment may lie uscd.nre speedily remedied
by its use. BemeiiilH'r it is not merely a
palliative but an erudicant of disease.

. A Eeautiko, Handwriting. There
are but few ol our readers who would not
like to acquire a rapid and Iicautiful hand
writing, for there Is no one accomplish
ment so highly prized a this. The- busi
ness colleges of the country Iirto afforded
the best instruction la this branch and have
succeeded in producing the most accom
plished jK-nmen. The lxst penman in
tlic country to-day is Prof. Gakkell, Pres
ident of the Bryant & Stiwtton College of
Manchester, N. II. There arc few lovers
of the beautiful art of penmanship who
liave not heard of this wonderful peunmn
and many have seen specimens of his skill.
His largo pjiecliuens have attracted great
attention in New York City and through
out the country where they have been
placed on exhibition.
He is now engaged day and night send
ing out Copies for self-instruction, which;
he writes himself expressly lor applicants,
so that any one can learn to write at the
home fireside. These contain full printed
instructions, and are put up in large heavy
envelopes and sent by mail prepaid for one
dollar jier package. ' They arc all number
ed and so fully explained that no one can
fail to learn rapidly from them. They
liave bceu ordered by thousands not by
poor writers alone, but by the leading
teachers of jienmanship throughout the
United States and Canada. Our readers
will do well to write for a package, as noth
ing so complete, beautiful and useful for
self-instruction will ever acain be offered

Atchison, McscoTAnCo, Kansas,
January 22d, 1873.
I think our Kansas winter is about over
for this time. It was short, but severe. It
commenced aliout the middle of December,
and continued twenty days as it it was in
earnest. The snow continued to fall slow
ly until the ground was covered to the
depth of about ten inches. On Christmas
morning the mercury was down 12 below
zero on the high prairie, and on the river
bottom, at Muscotah, 18 below zero; but
now the snow is about all gone and the
lrost ig going out of the ground- I he
wheal is not much hurt by the winter.
There is about one half of the corn ol our
county vet in the field, to lie husked. Il is
quite a common thing to hear a man say
that he has forty acres of corn to husk yet
White corn is worth 10 cents per bushel at
depot; yellow, 14; oats 15; spring wheat
?1 2.j; winter wheat $1 lo; Hogs 3 t
ier hundred: smooth native cattle $4 50.
I enclose with this my subscription for this
year and try to keep up with the times

During the cold snap between January
1st and 10th, while speaking of the intense
cold and the low stage of water, an aged
jicntlcman, with whom wc couversed, re
marked, that by the 12tb, 13th and Hth of
the month wc would have plenty ot water.
Upon the rest of the party expressing
doubts of this licing the case, he rejoined I
have never known the sign to fail. Curi
ous to know what his sign was wc inquir
ed of him what it was, and he said by look
ing at the Almanac you will see that these
days are all in the sign of the crab, and we
will be sure to have plenty of water then.
He informed us that he had hisinfomiation
many years ago, from the senior Wolthope,
of New Baltimore, (who was then quite
an old gentleman), and that he had taken
particular notice ever since, and never
knew the failure of this sign. Whether
the crab knows or not, the kite hiijh water
testifies to the truth of his virtue in this
case. Thinkinj there miirht be enough of
interest in this lor publication, I give it for
the benefit of those who would be weather
wise. Max ix Gi:at.

"('t with a Bcrioiig accident on the
ttt. lie 1 e n
As conductor Maucle was switching (T
from tlie main track at Riddlesburg, with
his train of empty coal cars, for the Sis
Mile Hun branch, on last Wednesday
niornintr, one or the shoes broke, anu
threw the cngin, and train on the ties.
This frightened the engineer and fireman
that both jumped oft and left the en-rine
oen and moving rapidly up the track.
The Conductor, knowing of the close
proximity to a trestle over a Hun of some
ten or twelve feet in height, at once sprang
over his cars to the engine, and stopped
the train just on the verge ot the Hun,
without any serious damages. Thus the
ready perception and devotion to his com
iany'8 interests, enabled this man to save
the destruction of an engine and many
cats, that would have amounted to a good
many thousand dollars to the Hroad Top
rail road. Bedford Pi-cm.
Pkobabi.t Fatal Accident. Yester
day morning a locomotive ran olf the track
near Stcvarton, a station on the Pittsburgh
and Connellsville Hailroad, twelve miles
cast of Connellsville. A wrecking train
was sent to the sjsit to pull the engine on
the track. This work was done by attach
ing one end of a heavy chain to the wreck
ins en pi ne and the other to the locomotive
oil the track. O! course, when the wreck
ing eneine started the chain was drawn
taut, and it is supjioscd one of the links
had a flaw in it, as it broke, and the chain
flew to one side, knocking tlown two or
three men who were standing lieside the
track. One of them, named Daniel
Dougherty, a "division foreman" of track,
was struck on the forehead just above the
lelt eye and had his skull broken and the
lsmes driven into the brain in a horrible
manner. The other men were but slightly
bruised. Mr. Dougherty was taken to
Falls City, three miles from the scene of
the accident, and was properly cared tor.
At six o'clock yesterday evening he was
still alive, though it is thought that he can
not possibly recover.
Mr. Dougherty resides at Harper's Ferry.

family. Vumlerlnnd .Vftf
Editor IIku.vld. I see by the County
sell lenient that our county docs not owe a
dollar and that there is a balance in the
Treasury of $8,587 22. This healthy con
dition of the finances of the county rellceis
great credit on our County Commissioners
and the County Treasurer.
I am Informed that Mr. Roberts, our en
ergetic and pushing Treasurer, for the first
time in the history of the county, has made
the collectors ot taxes in the different dis
tricts settle the full amount of their dupli
cates within a year from the time they
were placed in their hands, and that he
promises to do so nest year unless inter
fered with by the Commissioners, which will
make the balance in the Treasury from
? 1--,000 to fJO.OOO. This much needed re
form at first provoked a good deal of un
favorable comment, but as it produced this
unprecedented balance in the Treasury and
as his action is liecoming better understood,
it Ls getting the hearty approval of all our
best citizens. Now that the county has the
wherewithal, wc hope the Commissioners
will build a fire-proof vault for the Pro
tbonotarysand Recorder's office's and put
the Court House and Jail in proper condition.
Some three or four different grand juries
of the county have found that the vault
was much needed the court has approved
their action and wc see no reason why it
should not I put under contract at once,

The particulars as wc have them from an
eye witness are as lollows
" A protracted meeting bad liecn in pro
gress for some time, and on. Sunday even
ing the houso wm crowded by persons from
the village and neighborhood. Just after
the sermon had closed, and as Rev. D.
Stuft was exhorting the congregation, the
large six lamp chandelier, which hungsus-jx-nded
from the center of the ceiling, fell
with a crash to thefloor below, in the midst
of the audience, the lamps breaking and
scattering the burning oil in all directions.
The clolliing of a Miss Sarah Diet took
fire almtist instantly, and she was burned
in a terrible manner. A little child ol Mr.
Adam Friedlinc, which was in its mother'6
arms, was also very severely burned.
Those slightly injured, are George John-
hand smashed by beingcaught between
the falling chandelier and the back of a
Fisher, right arm burned; Dav-i

and numbers lumped out of the windows
to ecaie the burning clement.
