Our borough 'dads' procured for trial a fire extinguisher, manufactured at Chi cago. A building filled with inflammable materials was erected on Turkey foot street, and a test was made of the capacity of the engine, on Monday evening. A large crowd witnessed the trial. After the building was fired and the flames in full headway, the chemicals trom the engine were thrown upon the blazing mass, which blazed on, much to the surprise of the agent endeavoring to sell tbe machine, and to the no small amusement of many boys. Bicarbonate of soda and sulphuric acid were the chemicals used by tbe extin guUher. Tbe test was scarcely fair, as the oil barrels, etc, were piled in such manner that the flames could not be reach ed. The extinguisher will not remain here, we are inlormed. Comk asd Hear Mr. Grow.

Back again at my post of duty, with re newed energy and strength, after a few weeks' visit to my old homo in Somerset county. Everybody 1 meet says -now well vou look 1 I hardlv knew you. You must have gained twentv rounds or more. Where were you!"

Only nine hours ride trom Washington by rau, u a cuw ui fv io, iu hwwiw ivu from the hottest place in America to the most beautiful and picturesque spot in Western Pennsylvania, where the very hearty and well nourished citizens .

The livery stable men greet you at the de pot and welcome you to their midst, at the same time handing vou their cards of business on which are given a table of dis tances, in case you want to turn out for i ride into the country. Hotel proprietors look happy and shake you so heartily by the hand that it makes a person that isn t used to such a thins feel good. 1 could fill a page ot your valuable paper with good things that could be said about your citizens, climate, cheese lactones, iarmers, &c, but lime will not permit in tbis epis tle, as I have but a few minutes to spare before the mail closes for the west. I want to advise the people of Somerset who purpose traveling east over tbe li. k U. R. It., not to buv their tickets at Rock- wood going east farther than Cumberland, and I will 6how you why.

Cotton is no longer king, a computa tion made at the Bureau of Statistics for the eleven months, ended May 30, 1S79, discloses the fact, that for the first time in the history of the country, the exportation of breadstutfs has exceeded in value that of cotton and tobacco, the two staples ol the South, combined.

Picket. Bcckstowk, Aug. 16, 1879. Editor Herald : Please insert the following item in your excellent paper : 'Anere is anorner professional ntie iu the county. Mr. Moses Miller, of Cjuem ahoning township, was approached a tew days since by a lank, smooth-tongued, well clad gentleman or scoundrel repre senting himself as an agent from Pitts burgh, selling tbe Patent noiseless uea- Spring. After obtaining dinner and horse teed he solicited Mr. miner to take an agency for liuemahontng township, ue stated that his object was to employ an agent lor each township ; after employing the agent be would send a sample spring, which wiil cost the agent f 10. w ben Mr. Miller was about to sign the certificate he saw there was a trap set for him, so he refused tbe bait. Mr. Miller related tbe bag swindle to him and told him he must be one of the kind, tie protested nis non- esty, however, and said "this is quite a different thing." To give the mod it t op erandi of tbe swindle, as Mr. Miller stated it, would take up too much space perhaps. He is evidently a first-class swindler and a rogue of the deepest dye, and attempts to allure the unwary like the fabled siren with his fascinating promises. 1 think some of these fellows who pay hasty visits to the neighborhood, who are out upon a swindling expedition, should have an ap plication of tne Judge Lynch law. 1 think it would be an euectu&i remedy in stopping such operations. UTttEX. A ne w chapel is being erected at Rock- wood for the use of the Reformed congre gation of that place. The enterprise was begun a few weeks ago. Rev. A. E. Truxal, within the bounds ot whose charge the point lies, canvassed the place and received unexpected encouragement, in the form of pledges of labor, lumber and money. The second week of his ef forts workmen were sent to the woods to cut and hew timber, which was freely contributed by the farmers. Last Saturday a week a number of persons assembled with teams, shovels and picks, cleared off and graded tbe lot.aod now the masons are at work on tbe foundation. On Wednes day and Thursday of this week the Sunday-school Convention of Somerset classis will hold its sessions in Centreville. On Friday morning at 9 o'clock the ministers present will accompany the pas tor to Kockwood, where the corner stone of the chapel will be laid according to the C3remony of the Reformed church. Ad dresses will be delivered on the occasion by Rev's. C. "U. Heilman and Geo. IL Johnston. The chapel will be of frame and will be raised in about three weeks from now. Mr. Editor- The question of how nominations shall be made is exciting very considerable comment among t he Repub licans of eur section. All unite in the be lief that there must be some very great im provement made, but the puzzling conun drum is, how is this end to be accomplish ed? The plan published in our.county pa pers is a good one but rather cumbersome; can it not be shorn of some of the objec tionable features and then adopted,? The plan ot forming the election board is hard ly practicable, tbe mode of printing the tickets is ridiculous, and is not the time be tween the day of holding tbe primary and the meeting of the convention too short ? Personally I am in favor of the plan as submitted but cheerfully give way to any other plan that will make our nominations horutL Respectfully. Stalwart. Stonycreek, Pa.. Aug. 18, 1379. To farmers the most pestiferous weed that grows it the Canada thistle. On the 22d of March, 1862, the Legislature passed a law which makes it the duty of every person or persons, and ot every person holding lands, either by la.se or other wise, on which any CanaC i thistle may be growing, to cut the same under a penalty ot f 15, one-halt to go to the informer. Any one after having bad five days no tice to cut, and refusing, can be compelled lo pay for cutting at the rate of f 3 a day. to be recovered from the person or corpo ration. Xow is the time to cut the thistle to prevent its going to seed. It costs about a hundred dollars to go to the Mountains or to the Seashore, but if vou want to tone up the whole system, ycu can do it just as surely by taking one or two packages of Kidney-Wort, and so save your money. It is a sure cure tor Kidney complaints. Piles, Constipation and all bil ious diseases. Editor Herald : We are sorry to trouble either yourself or your readers with any further notice of your New Lex ington correspondent who subscribes him self "II," but justice to all parties concern ed will not permit us to drop the matter without noticing a tew imegs contained in his last article. The first question he raises for discussion is the authorship of the former article from Berlin. Upon this point all we have to say is that if to call a man proi easing to ne a first class teacher to account for the abuse of the English language is a crime, then we alone are the guilty party, and we do not wiss) to have the sin laid to the charge of any others, whether they be officials" or private members of society. Mr. il, seems to think u strange mat "a young man attending one of the normal schools" should have answered his former article, and asks what right he had to do so. Our answer is that every true teacher has an honest pride in bis calling and feels un willing to see the profession ot bis choice degraded by those who pretend to knowl edge they do not possese. For this reason the would-be first-class teachers of any community should be made to leel that to come before tbe public in a newspaper ar ticle that is full of inaccurate and faulty expressions is an offense committed against tbe profession and subjects tne writer to the criticism ot the whole fraternity, Sometimes we complain that the average salary paid to teachers is too low and no doubt it is in many instances lower than it should be. but tbe fault is to some extent our own. School directors will not and should not iay better wages until the pro fession is rid of such men as cannot write a halt-dozen consecutive sentences with out violating an equal number ot the rules ot the English grammar, for ibis reason every teacher is interested ia having those who belong to the profession either to ac quit themselves like men when they come before the public or else abandon the call' ing for a pursuit better adapted to the lim ited capacity of their untutored minds. 11 nr. IL s object was as ue says, "to ask a tew simple questions, toping to ob tain simple explanations," why did he not write to the County Superintendent or to the teacher having.charge ot tne school which he expected to attend, instead of assuming the responsibility cf raising the cry of "Something Unjust f ' He that can not bear criticism should not be so ready to criticise the motives and actions or others.

The expression with which the last writer begins his article is enough to excite the mirth of a school boy. How much kindness does he suppose he mani fests in asking permission to use the col umns of the paper in making bis reply to our former article ? We hope the editor will be able to appreciate this display of good will and benevolence. It reminds us ot the Irishman who thanked his host for the dinner he had so kindly enjoyed. With regard to this writer we have only to say that he would do well to attend to his own business and keep oil ot our toes, or be may bear trom us to his own displeasure. JJERLIX, PA., P. Li. ift. August 1G, 1879. J Jesxer X Roads Items- From no tices scattered around, the patrons of our cheese factory are assured not less than 50 cents per hundred for milk during the months ot September and October. Several cf the merchants of Johnstown have visited this place lately, advertising their goods and wares. We have been credibly informed that one or two parties contemplate the erec tion of new houses at this place next sum mer. Geo. Eichnor, representing the Meyers- dale Commercial, was circulating in this community last week, looking after the interests ot that paper. The pulpit of the M.

John Cole has placed on exhibition at the store ot B. S. Fleck, a stalk of oats measuring five feet and eight inches in length. It was grown on Dr. J. Covode's farm, near town. The farmers of this community made sure, by improving each shining hour last week, in gathering and garnering their oats crop. The prospects lor an abundant crop of oats are quite encouraging. On Monday, the 11th inst, while An thony Ash and family, residing about three miles south of town, were out in the har vest field, some person or persons entered their dwelling house and thoroughly ran sacked it, capturing a quantity of clothing, some cash, and a few other articles. Xo clue whatever to the perpetrators. John Kepler, for the past twenty-five years a resident of this place, died on Fri day afternoon last, having nearly reached So years of age. Mr. Kepler was an up right, honorable and honest citizen, much esteemed for his many good qualities and noble deeds. 1 he remains were forward ed to PotLstown, Fa., for interment Among the arrivals at this place last week, were John Hanna, of Arbuthnot, Shannon & Co., Dry Goods, Pittsburgh ; C. P. Truiit, of R. W. Truitt & Co.. Hard ware, and A. Shoemaker, ot Graff, Son & Co, Boots and Shoes, Philadelphia. They are all pleasant, genial gentlemen, and un derstand their business. Our hitherto quiet little town begins to assume the appearance of a very lively city. A large force ot hands have been put to work on the new brickyards, and we are informed they intend to push the work with ail possible speed. J. M. Cover contemplates burning 200,000 brick aud putting his new brick block (40x70) under roof this fall, if possible. May the good work continue. As the time is now fast approaching for the coming Primary election, we would suggest a thorough expression of the senti ment of the people throughout the county on a change of our present system ot nom inating candidates. 1 hat radical changes are needed seems to be apparent to every person. From observations made at places where tbey have changed to the delegate system, it seems to work charm ingly ; consequently, we shall raise our voice for the delegate system of nominat ing There seems to be great diversity of opinion, among sportsmen regarding the Pennsylvania Game Law, hardly any two of them agreeing as to the time at which the killing of certain kinds of game is sanctioned by law. I or the benefit of such persons we have looked over thelaw. selected such game as abounds in this sec tion, and give the result of our researches, in a nutshell, as follows : Rabbits may be killed trom October 15 to Jan. 1.

Aug. 2. 1879. at his resi dence, in Orangeville, Illinois, Rev. Hen ry unepper, aged 06 years, 11 months and 18 days. Again has passed away one who has left the world better for having lived in it A minister of the gospel during 37 years, he had ample opportunity for doing his Mas ter's service. His life was a life of trials, tribulations and persecutions, but during all these, he was devoted to the cause he espoused in youth, and remained steadfast even to the end. It has never been our privilege to meet a man who possessed such simple, confiding faith in the Redeemer. During the tiast tew veara his health was on the decline, but he was confined to his bed a short time only. His last ill ness was a conquest over death. Death was no unwelcome visitor, but met him fully prepared and anxious tor the change. His son, Dr. G. Knepper, and daughter, Mrs. Sandoe, were with him to the last The funeral services took place on Sun day afternoon, August 3d. Though the weather was rainy and disagreeable, yet an immense throng of people gathered to witness these sad rites. 1 he large church was densely crowded, and many failed to gain admittance. This showed, in a feeble way, tbe esteem in which the deceased was held among his people. All looked up to him during his life and called him "Pather." The services were conducted by Revs. . W. Stump, Van Sweannger and Pugh. The texts used were selected by the de ceased. Rev. Stump announced as his text the following : "Though be slay me. yet will I trust in him." Rev. Van Swear- inger based his remarks on 1st Timothy, chap, iv., from the sixth to the eighth ver ses inclusive. OHEBSET BASKET Corrected by Goo a fc B kbits.
