It is to lie regretted that there was not a larger audience present at the entertain ment given in tlieO(era House Saturday evening by the Salislmry Cornet Band, assisted by several sjecialists. The numbers on the program were all rend ered with exceptional ability aud fully demonstrated the H'rfection the organi zation has reached under the instruction of Prof. Irven Heals. Prof. Beals, by the way, is a versatile genius and can sing a wing with the same ease and grace that marks his coruit playing. He sang a popular ballad to the entire satisfaction of the audience. The gem of the enter tainment was a violin, mandolin 'and guitar trio executed by Messrs. and Miss I.ivei!go(d. Mr. ;eorgeS. Scully recit ed several selections in capital style. The performance throughout was one of real merit and was enjoyed by all pres ent. The band rendered several choice se lec.ioiis on the streets Saturday afternoon. A Tell Tile Scar. Joseph II. iKsiley, whose home is near oil city, was arrested at Davidson, Fay ette county, hist weeli. He is suspect ed of licing an accomplice of Joseph Sweeney, w ho was arrested at Connells ville a few days before, charged with rob bing the Bakersville ost olli. The Jefferson township constable followed tho two men who w ere accused of the rob'iery to within a few milesof Connells ville. Sweeney was arrested while try ing to dispose of soine of the stolen stamps. Evidence pointed towards I lot (ley :ls his partner. No stamps were found on his person when he was search ed. S. T. Hootcn, Inspector of Mails in this district, visited Coiintllsvihc, when Dooley was given a hearing before a V. S. Commissioner. He was shown a pict ure of Sweeney and denied any acquaint ance with any person resembling the likeness. He admitted that he had been at Bukersville, but claimed that Sweeney was not his partner. The strongest evi dence against the accused was that he had a scar on his face. Bakersville peo ple who saw the pair say that Sweeney's partner had a scar on his left cheek, but Donley's s-ar is on the other side of his nose. A further hearing was fixed for Tuesday morning. Hast Face the Music. The thoroughly discredited Johnstown VOM-.-.'', w hi"h last week printed a re traction of a slander it had published against II. W. Storey, Esq., of that city, in its issue .f Saturday attempts to craw 1 out of a hole in which it placed it self by publishing an untruthful and un called for atiack iiin the foreigners who were made American citizens by the Court of this county on September td by shitting the responsibility upoit the Hkrai.d and other Somerset county pa pers. This is wh-tt the II ks ald said concern ing the naturaliz.nio:i of the Diinlo citi zens : "Prothonotary Savior on Monday is suisd naturalization paers to thirteen foreigners, twelve of whom w ere former subjects of the 'i ieen of England, and one Norwegian, thus treating all previous rec ir.is made in this county for making American citizens in one day." When tiie . mi trrnl says that the Hkk ai.i or any other Somerset cidinty jour nal Republican or iK-mocralie referred to the new-made citizens a "ignorant Huns and Slavs" it is "talking through its hat" as usual. The Jk-m'irr-tt knows about as much aliout the jKiiiiies of this county as it eloes aliout the polities) of Cambria coun ty, which is nothing at all. Sight to Restrict Licenses. The ri"ht oftlie License Court to grant a license qualified by restrictions as to the time of opening and closing the saloon firnosd the basis of an argument 1 fore Judge Hare in Philadelphia, last Friday by ex-Judge Eleock, counsel for Justav Gcrstlauer, proprietor of a saloon at Fillmore and Somerset streets. Jcrst lauer's license is now in jeopardy because of charges that lie violated his agreement with the Lii-ense Court as to the hours of eijKMiing and closing his place. Ex-Judge E!ock argued that the Court had no right to grant a restri-ted li -cnsc. and quoted the opinion of the License Court in lsss jn the case of a man named Stevens, who applied for a license to sell liquor at the Academy of Music while balls and parties were going on. Judge Wilson, as President Judge of the Court, delivered the opinion, which held that the Court had no right to grant a restricted license, and if a license should ls granted upon conditions there was nothing in the law to compel a licensee to oliserve those conditions. Two From ths Berlin "Kecord." The John ;umlert farm, near Will's Church, has Ix en sold by the Adminis trators, Jonathan fJumlrt, a son. purch asing a srtion adjoining his place, and Jacob Ream, of Jefferson township, purchasing the jxrtion containing the buildings. Jonathan intends to build a house and barn on the part he Ismght. Mr. N. C. Walker, son of E. W. Walk er, of Shanksville. has a violin in his rsession that has the appearance of lieing very obL and undoubtedly is, as the date and markings on the inside show it to havelieeii made in Balzerne, Switz erlanel, in MVl. It one-e Udonged to Cap tain Huntley, of the 2d Maryland regi ment, and was Ixiught at a sale of his es tate by Robert McLuckie, of Stonyereek township, who sold it to Mr. Walker. Fixing the Tanneli. Col. Ives, chief engineer of the Cum berland Valley railroad, is in charge of a number of men who are engaged in cleaning out and repairing the tunnels along the Sovtth Penn, at Kay's Hill and Sideling Hill. Of course no information of note can lie obtained as to the object of the work at present, Iwt we have leen informed by a high official of the Cum berland Valley, that they intend soon to complete the link from Franklin county to ML Iiallas. We hope this is so. Ful fxn Ih titocraf. Definite Action Deferred. Three or four Pittsburg gentlemen in terested In tho promised Hotel and Sana torium to be erected on Tayman's hill ar rived in town Saturday morning and re mained fit the Somerset House over Sun day, where t'ney were in consultation with local parties, also interested in the proposed institution. Nothing definite was acci,j nlLshed ut this meeting. . The St Vincent Beer. St, Vincent's Journal, in Its recent is sue, contains an article signed by P. Dan iel Kain, O. S. !., in w hich it is stated that the majority of the priests in the Pittsburg diocese did not protest against the manufacture and tale of beer by the Benedictine monks. Father Kaib says that only 3 out of ItiS priests in the re treats when the paper of protect was cir culated could be prevailed upon to sign, it. Father Kaib then makes fun of an assertion that the aggregate wealth of the order is JU,000,000. He say, iu answer to some statements "If a plot of about sixty acres is excepted, the Benedictines of St. Vincent's do not own one square inch of land iu any of the southern state much less real estate in all of them." He also denies that beer is given regu larly to the students of the college. In answer to rumors aliout the "breweries, smokestacks, brewers, etc.," the article says that the brewery, and it calls atten tion to the singular number, is an unprep tentious, one-story structure, 32x38, w ith one chimney, and w ith an output of 40 or 50 tarrels per week, and that the entire work in the brewery proper, the cooper shop and malt house proper is performed by three men. "About tho only thing that Is really true about the whole affair is the fact that the monks ait St. Vincent abtiey brew and sell beer. And they have been doing this for the last forty years. It is remarkable that in all that time no one considered it to be a stain upon the fair escutcheon of the holy church. 011 the contrary many have admired them as a body of virtuous and solier men, who know- how to drink a glass of beer in a sensible and Uod fear ing way."

The pure food law enacted by tho last legislature will be rigidly enforced by the department of agriculture under the direction of Major Wells. He has agents antl an attorney at work in Philadel phia collecting evidence to be used in legal proceedings to be instituted against violators of the at- Frank N. Moore, last week appointed agent of the de partment of agriculture, will be given as sistance in Allegheny county as the work increases. Agents w ill also lie appoint ed for other parts of the state. Major Wells is preparing a formal ne tice to all manufacturers and dealers in articles of drink and food in the state that they must conform strictly to the require ments of the law in replenishing their stock and that hereafter all such articles must lie sold for what they are. If such articles are sold as pure they must lie pure. If goods are mixed or compound ed they must be so marked and sold. No ingredient that is injurious to health will be permitted to be incorjMiratcel with any articles of food. The commissioner say one can hardly conceive to what extent food is adulterat ed. For example, he has made an analy sis fa sample of pepper which contained sixty per cent, of buckw heat hulls, saw dust and sand. While the reform in the direction of pure food may apparently in crease the price of some articles, he says, consumers should bear in mind that iu buying cheap products they often pay their money for materials alisolutely worthless. Manufacturers and dealers over the state manifest a desire to eon form and acquic.se in all tho requirements of the law after it is thoroughly under- stood. Loit On Monday evening on tho public road lietween Jeremiah Broucher's.in Jefferson township, and Somerset, a eloubie-barrel breech-loading shot gun in a g-in case. The finder will lie suitably rewarded upon leat ing the same at this office. A 5ew And Important Ealing. Judge White, of Pittsburg, expressed a new idea last week with respect to the law of beneficial organizations, relating to the standing of meniliers. The suits of Margaret Friar, widow of Thomas Friar, and Daniel Boyce, Executor of Frank Boyce, against the National branch of the Emerald Beneficial Association, actions to recover death Iienefits, were trie!. The defense was that the persons on whose lives the benefits were said to be due were not in good standing a cord ing to the rules and by-laws of the Asso ciation. In charging the jury Judge White said that in his judgment the words "good standing" referred more to the character of the memljer than his financial relations to the Association. The jury returned verdicts of in favor of the plaintiff in lioth cases. The attorneys of the defense say the cases will be carried to the Supreme Court, and, if Judge White be sastaineeL beneficial associations will lie seriously affee-ted, as in all cases the words "good standing" have lieen construed as mean ing the inemlier's financial standing.

The apple crop is so plentiful this year that the distillers of "apple jack" are in expectancy of 'being able to turn out a large product, say the Alleutown, Pa., Ih-mocrnt. One of the largest operators in the business is Mr. l'.lias O. Creitz, a son of the late Hon. Daniel II. Creitz, of Jacksonville, Lynn tp., he usually iu good apple years turning out from 200 to 300 barrels, aud using up from 20,iX) to 25,UiO bushels of apples. The apples are crushed in a large iron apple mess, simi lar in construction to the old-fashioned wooden mill, but with a patent scraper by w hich the lalstrof one man is dispen se! with. The pomace is then placed iu huge stenners, holding aliout Ni bushels. to ferment, which process requires from two to four weeks, according to the weath er. Mr. Creitz has 150 stenners for fer menting purposes. He has two copper stills holding about (in gallons each iu op eration day and night, ami attends to them almost exclusively himself, averag ing alsmt twenty hours a day. He runs out about 24 gallons of whisky every twenty-four hours. He receives from f2 to 52.50 per gallon at the still. At its liest, when old, it brings ft to 94 a gallon. The government tax on the whisky formerly was ninety cents per gallon, but it has been raised to 31.KL It takes aliout five bushels of apples to make a gallon of spirits. Many of the farmers furnishing apples take their pay in the temper1! juice of the fruit. They store their cel lars with apple-jack with the same care that they store away potatoes and cabltage for family use. The Evidence. A go.nl many people in Somerset are using the Cinderella Range, which is the liest evidence of its merits. Sold and guarantee! by James B. Holukrbavm, Somerset, Pa. A Farmer Killed by a Ball. John F. Wright, a farmer living west of Salisbury, Md., was killed by a vicious bull, and his wife anil small child were injured. The three were returning home from church by a path across their farm when the animal charged down upon them. Mr. Wright, with a desire to protect his wife auil daughter, sprang forwarel while they crouched liehind him. The bull struck Mr. Wright with terrible force, entangling his clothing around its horns. Tiie wife and child were knock eJ down and seriously injured. The bull rushed madly across the field and tore through a barlwd wire fence, but this only increased its fury. With Mr. Wright still entangled 011 its horns the barnyard was reached, and around this a nimilier of ciruits were made. The farm hands rushed from the house and secured an ax and one was aliout to fell the bull when it ran through a small stable door, knocking Wright from his dangerous position. He was picked up ami died in a few minutes. Mrs. Wright and child arc both suffer ing from severe injuries, but are expect ed to recover. Cat Bread Thin. Many physicians, acor.ling to a lec turer on dietetics, are ordering thin breae! and butter for delicate patients, esiiecial ly those suffering from dyspepsia, con sumption, and anaemia, or any who need to takeon flesh, says the New York Tiiuf. This thin bread aud butler insensibly indm-es persons to eat much more butter than they have any idea of. It is extra ordinary, says the le-turer, how short a way a pat of fresh butter wil 1 go if spread on a number of thin slices of bread. This is one advantage and a great one in the feeding of invalids, for they are thereby provided with an excellent form of the fat which is so essential for their nutri tion, in away that lures them to take it without reliellion. But the thin bread and butter has another advantage equally great il is very digestible and easily as similate!. Fresh butter made from cream is very much meire digestible when spread upon thin slices of bread than the same amount of cream eaten as cream, per se, would lie. Scared to Death on a Train. It was the fate of pretty 16-year-ol.l Lizzie (Joddard. of Burnsiele, Ky to lie frightened to death by the first ride she had ever taken on the cars Wednesday night. Five minutes after she hael arriv ed at Chattanooga Tenn., on her first railway trip she was dead. Little Miss Ooddard had lieen in con stant fear of railroads all her life, and boarded the train Thursday only after much persuasion. The train made a lunge a few miles from the city anel she jumped from her seat and screamed in a frantic manner. She at once liecame unconscious am! died as she was being removed from the train. Physicians agree that she died of fright. School Statistics. Pr. William T. Harris has made public his fifth annual report for the school year ended Novemlier 30. ism. It eom prises three parts, the first of which is de voted to statistics. These show that in the year lst2-93 the w hole number of pu pils enrolled in schools and colleges, pub lic an! private, in the United States was l.",(js2,630, or 22.5 per cent, of the entirt population. This was an increase ov r the preceding year of 370,!D and the total would I increased to 15,400SiO if pupils in attendance upon sjus-ial educational agencies were included. The enrollment of pupils in the public schools for the year numtiered 13,510,710 an increase over the preceding year of 1.92 per cent, while the average attendance increased 3.45 per cent. Thedetails of attendance show that children in the United States leave school for aliout tw o-fitus of the year to engage in labot or from other motives. Excursion Bates to Atlanta.

That is What South Carolina Hegroee Will Xieeivo Election Officers to Decide Upon Their Educational Qualification. Colcm bia, S. C, Oct. 7. When the Con stitutional convention which adjourned on Saturday until October 14, meets again, there is little doubt but that it will adopt Gov. B. R- Tillman's plan to disfranchise the colored voters of South Carolina. Till man aud every other white man in the convention agree that the time has come to disfranchise the colored man. It is to lie done eipenly by means ef the so-called "educational qualification" clause in the proposed new constitution. The following provision is to lie embod ied in lhe new constitution: Every male citizen twenty-one years of age, who has not lieen convicted of a crime, aud is not an idiot or an inmate of a prison or a charitable institution, w ho can read a section of the constitution to the satisfaction of the oltii-ers of election, or who can explain said section when read to him to the satisfai-tion of said offi cers, or who pays taxes on $.Xi worth .if real property; or who can satisfy the election ollicers that he has paid all taxes due by him to the Stute, anil w ho shall be duly registered according to law, shall be entitled to vote. The clause is designed to place arbi trary power in the hands of registration officers, w ho w ill lie enabled to reject enough colored votes to decide an elec tion. The registration officer would have supreme power to make votes in the State, as the Supreme court of South Carolina has decided that there is no ap peal to law courts from ails of clclioii officers. There are but six colored men in the constitutional convention, so that the adoption of this clause is a foregone conclusion. South Carolina has seven Congressmen, but the white leaders are reaily to have this number cut to five, in order to disfranchise the colored voters. Gov. Tillman says that, seeing how the w hite people of the Slate had lenme bitterly divided, it was only a question of time when a dissatisfied minority would appeal to the colored vote to thwart the will of the majority. His enemies say that it was calli'd for the purpose of passing measures tending to prolong the lease of power jwissesso! by Senator Tillman aud his lieutenants. Ex-Congressman Samuel Smalls, the representative negro of the State, says the (invention was called for tie) pur pose of disfranchising the colored race by dishonest laws, instead of disfran chising them, as heretofore, by the dis honest performance of honest laws Stated iu another way, the w hite people. since their faelional division, were turn ing against one another prailices which had lieen devised to lie useJ only against the colored men, and the whole State is sick of fraud and perjury in elections and demands the passago of such laws as would perpetuate white supremacy, with out the disfranchisement of a single white man, at the same time disfranchise as many colored men as possible. This is the frank statement made by numerous candidates 011 the stump. Since lsTii all elevtions have lieen carried by the Democrats through grossest frauds and w holesale perjury. The colored voters do cot think the proposed plan .-an be worse than the political treatment they have lieen receiving. Marriage Licenses.

Their Digestive Cordial is said t be the mist successful remedy for stomach troubles ever introduced. It immediate ly relieves all pain anel distress after eat ing, liuihls up the feeble system and makes the weak strong. The fact is foexls proierly eligested are better than so-caiIsel tonics. The Cordial not only contains food already digested, but is a digester of other f.xxls. Food that is not digested does more harm than good. People who use the Cordial in sure the digestion of what foes! they eat and in this way get the lieuetit of it anil grow strong. . The little pamphlets whiedi the Shak ers have sent druggists for free elistribu tion, contain much interesting informa tion on the subject of lysiepsia. Laxol is not a mixture of el nigs. It is nothing but Castor Oil made palatable. Postmasters Hade Censors. Acting Postmaster General Jones has made a decision affirming the right of postmasters to withhold from delivery newspapers and publications which they may consider libelous or oliss?ne or oth erwise obnoxious to the law defining un mailable matter. The decision was based on the action of the postmaster at Davenport, Iowa, w ho refused to deliver from his otlie-e copies of a Kansas City publication w hich be considered lilielous and bHs?ne- The case has been pending in the ptotlice department for some time anel has been hotly contested. Acting Peistmaster General Jones in deciding it held that the Davenport post master ailed within his right under the law, and that any postmaster can refuse to deliver similar objectionable publica tions, although the postmaster at the point where they were mailed accepted them as mailable. A postmaster can not, in advance, de cide that he will not receive for mailing or refuse to deliver copies of publica tions, Ixit must liase his decision on an actual examination of au edition or issue. - The Oldest Immigrant.

Northwest's Great Wheat Crop. D11.I TH, Minn., Oct. 6. When it was predicted months ago that the wheat crop oftlie Northwest would this year exceeel that of Isfil, the banner crop, wiseacres "said the people w ho made the prediction were crazy. The laugh is now on the other side, and even the men who, two months ago, said that the crop of the three Sutcs would nil exe-eed 150 ,(i.0r.O hiishels.now admit that it w ill l cle to 175,ii,imi, anel may even run U250,ono, i bushels. Many big grain men of the Northwest are trying to have the crop figures toned down a trifle. Tearing that when the news of the gigantic yield reaches the East an attempt will lie made to senle down the price, which is now altogether too low to suit the farmer ami the grain dealers. This big crop U touring into Dululli in a way never lieforeequa'e I, and the indications are that tho heavy receipts w iil continue for many weeks. Chinese Eat Their Enemies.

Reprisals followed, and the fight ing continued over a month, causing a large numlier of deaths. " One side took throe prisoner and the other four. These men were killed ami eaten. Every eatable portion was on sumed, most of it being- given to the children of the villages.
