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

of the audience. The gem of the enter

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

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.

. 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

The Fare Food Law.
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-

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.

Halting Apple Jack.
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

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.

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
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

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

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.

0PZH DISFB S.HCHISEMENT.
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.

The Shakers have made a great nit.
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. .

ers have sent druggists for free elistribu
