There is promise that the harvest of fatilities and Berious illness from mis taking toadstools for mushrooms and serviug them on the family table will be fully up to the averago crop this season, as we note by some ol our exchanges that the trouble has already begun. People vho have not a thorough knowledge of the difference between the edible and the poisonous varioties of this peculiar fun gus should at loast have the good sense to restrain the other members of the fam ily from eating them until they them selves have first tried and found out the difference One sure rule is, if, after eat ing a good gorge, you don't die, they are mushrooms, tut if the undertaker's ser vices are required thou they are toad stools. Judge Lindsey of this district has de cided in a case before the court in Warren county th'at the fact of whether or not children hayo had smallpox is to ln de termined by a physician and nut by the school board. Tho decision was ren dered in the cae of Mr. and Mrs. Her bert Cousins, residents of Warren, whose children had been refused admittance to the public schools by Superintendent MacGowan some time ago. A certificate showing tho children had smallpox was presented from a physician who was temporarily residing in Warren. The board of education questioned the ve racity of the certificate, and declined to admit tho children. A long loal 1 attle ensued an 1 a rt of mandamus was se cured Tue-tdav compelling the board to admit tho children to tho public schools.

C. C. Rumberger preach his farewell ser mon, and those in atteniance were well -repaid, for tho Reverand gentleman preached a most helpful sermon. At the close he spoke feelingly for the pastorate here, and complimented the church mem bership on the excellent work of the past ysar, which was the most successful, from a financial standpoint, at least, of auy year in the history of the church. Rev. Rumberger has been an earnest worker and has made many friends by the fear less manner in which he preached the gospel and denounced all wrongdoing."

Jerome Weaver, the popular land lord of the Maple Shade hotel at Tylers burg, had a very narrow escapo from death at Leeper station last Wednesday afternoon. He was walking on the track of (he narrow gauge railroad as the north bouud passenger train was pulling Into the station, but supposing that ho was on the sido track , made no effort to get off until his attention was attracted by some of the bystanders. He attempted to es cape but was caught by the "cow-catch-or" and thrown upwards till his clothing caught on the flag post of the engine, and thus he was dragged several rods be fore tho train could be brought toa stand still. Dr. Beatty, the altouding physic ian, found his collar bone broken and othor severe bruises, Mr. Weaver was able to be conveyed to bis home, but will bo laid up lor some time. The call was a close one, and should leach the victim a lesson. Good landlords are scarce, Je rome, and you must take extra care of yourself. David Lamb, formerly of Pleasant ville and Bradford, and who has numer ous acquaintances in Tionesta, was in Oil City Saturday on business. The Derrick says Mr. Lamb Came from Cuba, where he has some large landed interests and speaks most enthusiastically of the country and the opportunities it pre sents. He is located at Mayari, on the north sido of the island, in the province of Santiago. The climate is not so hot as generally reported, the highest temper ature recorded in a dozen years was 08 degrees, and the lowest 51 degrees. The soil is adapted to corn as well as tobacco, and stock raising is likewise proving n profitable investment. Mr. Lamb has lit tle patience with the Spanish inhabitants, whom he describes as careless, shiftless and not) -progressive. The hotels of the country are wretched, and it is hard work to do business with the natives. Under American rule, he thinks, Cuba would speedily become one of the richest coun tries in the world, and Havana would in creaso to a million inhabitants. M, . Conference Appointments.

The Burnett Township School Board has organized a a Board of health, and will endeavor to establish stringent quarantine regula tions in tho future, and thereby stamp out the disease by stopping tho furthur spreal.

It. It. at Jam- ieson Station. A serious wreck, causing the death of two employees, occurred a short distance above Jamieson station, ou the P. R. 11., about noon last Tursday. The work t:aiu was going up the track at about a 25-uiile rate of speed, the engine running rear end foremost, when the tender left the track, followed almost instantly by the locomotive and five Hat cars loaded with cinders. The tender was thrown to the lelt side of the track, while the engine plunged to the right and landed the full length of itself from the track in a meadow below. Five cars followed and were dumped in a confused mass cross wise of the track, tearing and twisting the rails and ties into every conceivable shape, many of tho wheels and trucks be ing almost completely bu, led from view in the road-bed. The train crew consisted of conductor J. C. Patterson, engineer Georgo A. Smith, aud fireman Verne Jones. There were in all 11 cars and tlie caboose. When the engine went over the fireman was thrown out of the cab, light ing a few feet from where it struck the ground, and was found lying under a pipeline which runs along the edge of the field. He was dead when picked up, having doubtless been instantly, killed. Engineer Smith managed to extricate himself from the wreck, aud ciawled several feet away, where be was found and couveyed to the home of Bert Thom son, about a quarter of a mile below, and medical aid was quickly summoned, lo the persons of Drs. Bovard and Dunu, who found his right leg broken between tlie thigli and knoe, and the hip badly bruised. He was given the best attention possible under the circumstances and brought to the Tionesta Station in the ca boose, and In the afternoon was taken by special train to Oil City where, at the hospital he was placed in charge of Dr. Coulter, one of the company's physicians. At 2:15 o'clock Friday morning he died from the effects of his injuries, which were undoubtedly of an internal uaturo. The body of the unfortunate fireman was also conveyed to Oil City on the same train and given iu chargo of au un dertaker and prepared for burial, When this operation was performed it was found that there were no outward signs of any injury capable of causing death. There was a deep cut near the left knee and the front of the legs from the knees down to the feet were scalded. There were no abrasions on the face, spine or head. The ribs had not been broken, and there was no injury to the spine that was visible. Tlie deceased was aged 25 years and was the son of Mr, and Mrs. Lincoln Jones, whose home is two miles west of Tryouville, Crawford county. He bad worked for the company in othor capaci ties, but had only been employed as a fireman for about 10 days. Engineer Smith had been employed on the P. R. R. as fireman for some years, and had only recently been promoted to engineer. He was aged about 31 years and was born and reared in Oil City. He leaves a wife and 4-year-old son. How bo escaped instant death in ho frightful a wreck is beyond comprehension. Both victims of tie wreck were highly esteemed for their industry aud steady habits, and their funerals were largely attended by sympathizing friends. Trap Shooting1 at MnrieiiYlllo. The Marienville gun club royally en tertained their friendsof the Sheffield and Tionesta gun clubs last Friday, tho oc casion being a return visit from tlie Tio nesta club in which the Sheffield club was invited to participate. Seven of the shooters Irom this place found it conve nient to accept the Invitation from tholr Marienville brothers, and they have no regrets that thoy did so, for a plcasauter occasion or warmer welcome could not bo wished for than was accorded tliem during their stay in the bustling little city. The Sheilleld gentlemen, a genial and wholesouled bunch, arrived on the scene shortly bofore noon, and not long alter dinner the three clubs were ranged up for the friendly contest. Tho teams were composed of seven men each, and tbo birds were thrown fiom two Expert traps, which acted very do cenlly during the entire contest, which lasted until after 4.00 o'clock. Sheffield won out with a good lead; Tionesta be ing second iu the list, with Marienville a dangerously close third. It was au off day for some of the Tionesta shooters, and the team was saved from being tail- endersonly by the excellent work of those who had their "shooting eyes" with them. Iu tlie scoro which follows there are three extra men two from Sheffield and one from Marienville, who shot "merely to lill up the different squads, and their scores are not counted in the team ohoot.

In this shoot Mr. Clark, or the Tionesta team, won first by mak ing a straight score, while three other of the team were in the ties for the other prizes. And so "a very pleasant event ended, which we know was greatly en joyed by all who participated therein. Tlie shoot was attended by a largo crowd of interested spectator, wliilo a number ot ladies graced tho event bv their presence, and seemed quito taken With tho novelly of the i ccasioii. E litor Sam. Pickens, of (lie Express, act id very acceplably as referee, bavin a "good eye" for the close decisions. One of Marienville's royal citizens, and who aMed as official score-keeper, is T. C. McMasier. He is not a trap- snooier, but when it comes to a matter of entoi taming visitors and making them feel as though they were right at home, and "wanted to linger longer," the tal ented T. C. can bit the bull's eye, or smash a clay pigeon with the best of them. There is.some prospect that the three teams will meet again before the season closes on the gioiinds or our borne club. Tha Tionesta team hopes this will hap pen, and that they will have an oppor tunity to return the splendid hospitality shown them on this enjoyable occasion. Ou this score Marienville has first hon ors. A Society Event. On Monday Sept. 7th fully 80 iuvited guests assembled at the residence of Mrs. M. Andrews, Kelletiville, Pa., and en joyed a most ploasant evening, the occa sion being Mrs. Andrews' birthday an niversary. 200 invitations were issued, but othor business and tlie inclement state of tlie weather proved a hindrance to the out-of-town people especially. Early in the evening the guests began to assemble in the tastefully arranged draw ing rooms which had been put in rcadi uess. The flower'', of which there were many both elegant and beautiful were given by Mrs. A. H. Downing, who enjoys a rare tasto for such beauties, many admiring their elegance. Mrs. Andrews being a good entertainer and hostess, having traveled extensively, which gives her a natural insight toward making one f.'el perfectly at homo at all times, everyone present was looked alter and made doubly welcome. Sho was as sisted by bor clerk, Mr. A. C. Beeson, who takes naturally to making one feel perfectly at home. Nuts, candies and tlie choicest fruits of tho season were frequently passed, anil were partaken of, while the finest of Ha vanas were in waiting for all the gentle men who were lovers of the wood. Music was in waiting at the hall just across the street and all who wished to get themselves involved iu the giddy whirl of the waltz, two-step or squaro dance could do so to their hearts dosire. Had tho weathor been tine the elegant lawn would have been in use, but as it was nothing occurred to mar a single feature of a pleasant evening's event. At 9:30 all repaired to the Chamberlain hotel, where covers had been laid for all of Mrs. Andrews' guests. Of the repavt itself it is useless to speak, as no whore in the whole couuty does any one have a better reputatiou lor furnishing tho required material and au abundant amount, too, than does the Chamberlain house. As a cook and chef, Mrs. Chamberlain can beat the Dutch. The out of town guosts wore Mr. and Mrs. G. F. Watson, Tionosta; Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Richards, who reside at May burg, but who are slopping for a timo at Fox creek, aud J. B. Aird, of Warren. Mrs. Andrews was the recipient of a very elegaut silver tea set and a diamond brooch. After enjoying themselves hugely and wishing the hostess many more such occasions all repaired to their respective homes. AGukst, Jlayhtirg. Mr. Lord, foreman for tho Proper Oil Co., at Minister, lost his wife by typhoid fever, Sept. 10th. It was a hard blow, but we kuow not whom it may be next. Services at the ho'ise were conducted ty Rev. Win. Richards. The body, with friends, loft for Tionesta Friday at 10:00 a. in. Henry Deshner is reported on the sick list, but better. Bert NL'hols, with bis family, returned (o town alter au absence of a month or so, Ray Birtcil and Jay Baiikhead aro here doing some concrete work ou tho big gas engine foundation. Quarterly meeting at Whig Hill on Sabbath, Mrs. L. D. Smith is reported as im proving, but still has to have the attend ance of a trained nurse. Last winter during tho high water and Ice gorge, two cars placed upon the bayou bridge, near the old slash dam, were car ried into the water, almost out ot sight. Supt. Leon Watson, of the S. A T. It. R., took one out about a week ago. A few days ago the oilier car was hauled out with a steel line and large tackle blocks. Don't know who was the boss, but it was a good job. The school board met at Maybuig and found the burg in boiler condition than was expected. Except a fow places that need immediate attention, all was well. leltcr to Tionesta Steam Laundry. 36 Ttoncxtu, Pit. Dear Sirs : You ask how many square feet a gallon will cover. Depends on con dition of building. There is a great deal of lying on this point. Tlie stock claim of lying paints is 800 square feet, two coats. It's a lie as a rule. J5-7 Devoe covers 300 to 5011, our agents think. We think 300 Uo low and 500 loo high; though doubtless they both occur. How much the other painls cover Is equally doubtful ; wo guess 10(1 to -loo. The truth is found in another compari son. Devoe is all paint, true paint, strong paint, and full-measure; the oth ers in general are, at the best, diluted, adulterated and short measure. They cover according lo body and measure. You can't paint with clay lime chalk sand barytes water or air no body in them. Go by Devoe. Yours truiy, F. W. Dkvok it Co., 0 New York. P. S. Jao D.
