The Weaver Baumer orchestra, from Adair's Johns town Opera House, will furnish the music for the occasion, and the money derived from admission will be applied to paying the expenses of the musicians. The entertainment given in the Opera House Saturday evening, under the auspices of the Jr. O. V. A. M.. attracted a lair sized audience. The performers all acquitted themselves cretitably, and it must have been manifest to Miss Lilian Burkhart, the tal ented young elocutionist, that she has many warm admirers in Somerset. A pair of heavy farm horses belonging to Levi Long, of Somerset township, became frightened at some noise on the street Thurs day afternooa, and breaking loose from the post to which they were tied, in front of the Mammoth Block, dashed up Main Cross street at a furious speed, dragging a covered wagon to which tbey were bitched after tbem. The wagon came in contact with two other vehicles standing on the street, wrecking all of them and freeing tbe horses.

The advertisements, he says, are es- rjeciallv interesting, roa.vy being worded in F.nirlish arotes'iu enough to make a horse laugh. About 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon a large fire waa set burnine in the wu!s three miies south of town and west of tbe Berlin road. Great volume of thick, blark smoke welled ud toward the skies and were tossed in every direction by stiff wind bl-jwing from the north. Sharp flashes of flame appeared above the hill every few moments, causing I'irn amornr those who saw them Iroro town, and led them to beliav that a terrible forest fire was imminent. A number of per anna rode on t to the scene, and on return iog in the evening reported that farmers were out in force fighting tbe fire and had it nn.ler control. Monday morning it was reported on the streets that Casebeer ! saw mill, the Plank Road school bouse, and the hk-h bridze on the Berlin road had been consumed by tbe flames. Mr. Josiah Woy, the well-known lumber dealer of Somerset township, and Mr. J. M Murdock, a gentleman engsiced in the same business, from Johnstown, have about com- nleted negotiations for the purchase of a bar ren waste, embracing several hundred acres, ait miles south of town, known as the "Bare Rucks." The name is probably derived from tb. tact that very little, if any. reseUtion now on tbe tract, aod nothing conrnls the great pile of rocks, which lay bare and Muoni It is understood that the new own en of tbe rock propose forming a syndicate who will make business of furnishing hmMin? and Davine stones to lorai and (oreizn market. A railroad about th milea in lenzth. running from Milford ia- tinn ia the foot of the rocks, and at a very easy gradei, will be buiit when the syndicate ha been organised. A force of wort men are employed at present splitting rocks. Mr. Woy say that th formation of the " Bare twta" ia i ha moat peculiar he has ever seen, inasmuch a very UtU ooimim will be required to sak them marketable, and that stone of anT reouired dimensions can be famished They are the best nialtty of rock in the Ki said Mr. Woy, last evening, " and . hmvm enoueh of tbem to ship ten car load a day for on hundred years, and then hare at least one bail ou- purchase len. i baye put my money In them for aa invest-m-nt.

Mrs. Jacob Rosa, of Shanksville, was sur prised a lew evenings ago by the arrival of not less than one hundred of bev neighbor, who assembled at ber borne to celebrate th 5th anniversary of her birth. This spon taneous gathering is an indication of the high esteem in which Mrs. Roa is held by her neighbors and friends. On Monday afternoon fire broke out near Roberts' station, on tbe S. A C. R. R-, two and on half miles below town, and by evening hsd eaten its wsy a mile or more towards the east. The flame appeared to grow in fury each moment, and the sight they presented after night was one of weird beauty. Great tree were encircled in an in stant by tongues of flame and set burning from base to top, resembling a mighty pyrotechnic display. The fire is still raging, and is consuming everything in its way. Mr. Edgir HefTley. of Berlin, who has jnst completed a thorough course of business training at the Iron City College, Pittsburg, '., has been called, through the influence of the principal. Prof. Charles J. Smith, to assume the management uf the books of the Excelsior Coffin and Casjtel orks, of Alle gheny, Pa. This firm has the largest plant of its kind in the United Suites, and it is quite a compliment to Mr. Henley's ability to be considered sufficiently qualinea to nil uch a responsible trust. Tbe Iron City College is doing incalculable service to the young men i the country, in preparing them to become useful not only to them selves, but to others. William Kinkead. of Somerset, and Joseph Coleman, of Bedford, were arrested by Penn sylvania Railroad OScer Clark, Sunday morning, at Gallitrin, on a charge of car breaking. The men were taken to Johns town and plaoed in the lock-up. They were given a hearing before Alderman Harris Monday morning and committed to jail to await trial at the June term of court. The men claimed at tbe hearing (bat they had merely opened tbe car and enti-nd to ride to Lock Haven, where they had an engage ment to ptel bark for a tan bark manu- fi-Hnre. The men told a straight atory. but the fact that they bad brokn open a car which contained merchandise made the act a felony in the eyes of the law and they were accordingly committed. Mr. Ed. Miller, of near Stoyestown, this county, has two books wnicn ne vaiues highly on account of their age. One is "The Travels of Jonathan Carver." and was print ed in ITTrt, being 115 years old. It is in a good state of preservation and is very inter esting. It was bought by Abraham Hilde brand in 171)5. At hi death his daughter, Catharine Burkhart, became its owner. She lost her life In tbe great flood of the Cone- roangh Valley, being the oldest white female child bora in Johnstown, where she first r tbe light on April 9, 14, near when Col. John P. Linton's house stood before th flood. Previous to ber death she gave it to ber daughter, L. H. Muller. The other is a Catholic Prayer Book. Th owner's name was Cust. It was sold at a sale and bought by the father of the present owner. It is m derman, ana was pnniea m 17'. It is likewise in a good state of pres ervation. Saturday the county commissioners re ceived a telegram from the Superintendent of the Western Pennsyvania Asylum for the Insane at Iixtnont, announcing the death of Samuel Ream, Jr.. an inmate of that in stitution committed from this county. Tbe Commissioners made aa ananccessful effort to learn tbe whereabouts of any relative of the dead man's and later in the day tele graphed the Superintendent to bury the body at the exinse of the county. The Oyer and Terminer record shows that Sam uel Ream, Jr., plead guilty to an indictment for rape, at September Term, lis" on infor mation made by Catherine Keefer, of Cone maugb township, and that be was sentenced to pay a fine of ten cent, th costs of prose cution and to undergo imprisonment in th western penitentiary at hard labor for period of four years.

Ortu, Secretary and Executive officer of the State Board on Lunacy, S'lpplemented by the affidavits of two physicians and the Warden of the peni tentiary setting forth that Samuel Ream Jr., committed from Somerset county was in sane and should be committed to the State Asylum for Insane at Dixmont. A com mitment was made out tbe same day and placed in tbe hands of the Sheriff who sub sequently transferred the prisoner from the penitentiary to the Asylum. Nothing was ever learned about Ream's family He is b -lieved to hare come from Cambria county originally. Backer W. J. Hitcbman, of Mt.

Lark ot at tention and decay bad by this time greatly impaired the value of the property, and to save it from total wreck and ruin tbe oat er decided to convert it into a summer resort for his family and their friends. Tbe two mill bniidinga were transformed into a hotel and tbe tenement house into I eat and attractive cottage of modern dtsiga by skillful workmen. Banning wa ter was introduced into alt of tbe building from a large spring oa th mountain aide above, and an electric light plant wa pn ia to light tbe grounds and bouses.

To Tell Poisonous Vine. A very little care and discrimination will save people from being poisoned by either sumach or ivy when wandering the woods at a pic-nio. If one remembers that the three-leaved ivy is dangerous, while the five-leaved is harmless ; that tbe sumach with the white berries is poisonous, and the red berried sumach not at all so indeed, the red ber ries have an acid often enjoyed by the write, who knows them to be harmless and ever wholesome one need never suffer from poisons. Both the poison ivy and the sumach, al though dissimilar in appearance of foliage. have white berries growing in small slender clusters from the axils of the leaves, and it is of these the wanderer in the woods should beware. The Berlin Millinery Store has just been filled with a carefully selected stock of new and fashionable millinery for tbe Spring and Summer trade. Something to please everybody. Come and see.

I thanked them for their interest in me, bu" told them I could rot wri'e to each person ally but that I would write an occasional letter for tbe Hikalb, provided the editor wouid print tbem. The name " Tippecanoe " date back to th campaign of 1S10. which explain ltseJf, and the "city " was added to prevent ccn f jfion with Tippecanoe, in Harrison coonty. It is the business centre of Monroe tow nship, Miami county. It is situated sis miles south of Tray, the county seat, and fourteen mile north of Dayton. The Miami and Erie Ca nal and the C II. A P. R, R- run through the town and afford abundant and cheap outlets and inlets for basin-. Through the suburb flows the waters of the Big Miami, on their way to the tunny south. The city possess considerable wealth, which is not hoarded in safes, but invested in various industrial enterprises. Among the firms ere tbe Ford Company Wheel Works, C Trupp 4 Co. Planing Mills and Lumber Yard, Tippecanoe Jrurnitur Company, Tippecanoe Whip Factory, Fall Milling Comoany. Excelsior Works, Jai- tress Wo-.is, and the American Straw board Company. These industries employ quite a number of skilled laborers, and as a consequence in vite other business interests to meet the va rious demands. Tbe residences of tbe town, in their eon- ii -- . i - venience in structure, as wen as men di mensions and architectural beauty, indicate wealth, taste and refinement. Tbey are not crowded against each other, nor shoved out to the last inch of available ground on tbe street, but are set back a reasonable dis tance, affording the finest lawns, with bed of rich and rare Bowers in front yards, with out any inclosure. The town is bestudded with the finest shade trees, which are now in full foliage, and in approaching the place looks more like a large grove than a town, viewed from a Pennsylvania standpoint. We have five churches English Luther an, German Lutheran, Methodist Episcopal, Baptist and Roman Catholic. Having just pitched my tent here I am not pn pared to say much about churchliness, notwith standing I was greeted with a full house in my very first s-rvice.

We are getting things into shape in our beautiful, newly papered and painted parsonage, on the corner of -Main and Third treets, just opposite the church, al though the sound of the tack-hammer is still heard ; but it will soon cease its mo notony. Salve and plasters will soon heal the pounded thumbs, the sore knees and al most broken backs.
