Ex Although the chestnut crop was the heaviest iu years past, it may be said to be practically all taken in, and those who have triod to harvest a few during the Dastfew days have found them quite an,l more or less wormy. The market here has at no time boeu over stocked, but lt Is quite likely there will i,o ..i.nuinnts to munch pretty much all winter lonir. Leon. son ol Mr. and Mis. Joseph Clark, has been confined to his bed dur inn the past week with a serious attacK o annendicitis. Drs. Bowman and Brooks, ol Jamestown, N. Y., were called in con sulfation with Dr. Bovard, who 1ms been in charge ol the case, the result ol which Las beon that an operation was decided upon. Thia morning at six o'clock the operation was begun and the physicians found the case a critical one, but hopo to TLe new process of producing tan ning fluid from chestnut timber, which is said to have been successfully worked out In Titusvillo, should be of general in terest throughout this section where hemlock Is rapidly being depleted and tanneries are greatly Inconvenienced by a lack of tunic acid. Chestnut trees are not very plenty, but can be grown. Anothor large consignment of coal Hats and bargoa from the yards of Collins, Kreltler A Co., at Nebraska, Forest Bergo Co,, at West Hickory, and Warren Lum ber Co., at Gruudervillo, was permitted to get off on the rlso In the river last week. The river lumbermen of this section have beon greatly favored In the matter of water to float thoir wares to inarkot this season. The oil market has been on the up grade for soveral days past, at the pres ent writing having reached the $1.05 mark, all of which maketU happy the heart of the producor, great and small. The 2-dollar oil predictors are busy agaiu, and it wouldn't surprise the casual observor to find the prophesies varlfied before the end of tlio year. And there'll be joy in the oil fields. To-morrow the limiting season opeus and it is likely the trusty fowling piece that has lain dormant for the past year will be brought back Into commission on this occasion, while many a hopeful sport will sluggishly drag himself home in the evening with a lighter game bag than that with which he started out, but with the"wlre edge" worn rfT, and an appe tito for snpner that knows no bounds and quails not at the quality of the viands. The Tionesta ball team has had a good year. While it has not won every gamo it has acquitted itsolf with credit to tlio town and the members of the team personally. There is nothing cleaner and more healthy than out-door sports, when they can bo kept fiom prolessionalism and gambling. They ought to be en couraged, as they give an innocent outlet to youthful enthusiasm in a way that proves a tonic both to mind and body. Tnkliig Into consideration the cool weather, a good deal of interest is still manifesied iu tennis, as the courts hero aie almost always occupied. The season wh ich is closing has been a yery success ful ono, and a uotablo Improvement in the play of the old players litis resulted. Some of tlio best players of the town to day, however, never played before this summer, and their rapid development shuws consistent and faithful practice on thoir part. For some weeks past the Philadel pnia Sunday Press has been devoting a page to the "Beautiful Women of Penn sylvania," giouping In attractiye form tho photographs of some of the handsome women of our great Stale. Last Sun day's Press contained the picture of one ol Tionesta's fair daughters, that of Miss Iva Holoman, and though the picture did not flatter Miss Holeman in tho loast, it was undoubtedly the handsomest cce in the group. Soveral hemlock timber raits were run out of the creek from Newtown last Friday, tho water being high onougb, with the cutting or the bracket at that nlace. to allow all to get out safely. The limber belonged to Wheeler, Dusenbury A Co , and was coupled up und Btarted for the lower markets Saturday in charge of ex-SlieritrOsL'ood as Pilot. Jt is one of the uncommon sights now-a-days to see a timber raft on our waters, especially at this season of the year. Hev. James Hogers, in his 31st year, died at his home at Henry's Bend at 1:30 o'clock on Saturday afternoon Irom ty phoid fever. Tho deceased was born and reared at Henry's Bend and was a Free Methodist preacher, conducting services at the various Free Methodist churches in the vicinity of his home. He is survived bv his wife and one child, the latter 18 months of age. The funeral was held Monday morning, the interment being in the Plnmer cemetory. The "flag" stamp, wnich has been In use fir about six months, will soon be superseded bv a new design. The new stamp will be known as the"sbield"post age slam p. The design has beeu formally approved bv the Postmaster General and the bureau of engraving is now inak' ing the platos, each containing 400 do- signs from which the lour billions ol 2-cent postage stamps which the people of the United States will require during the next 12 months will be printed. At last it looks as though the seques tered town ol Clariou might have a rail road, the indications being more favora ble than for years past. It is to be known as the Clarion A Suuuiierville K. R., and is to extend from one town lo the other, tho latter being located on the Low Grade division of the P. R. K. The contract for the giado has been let, and the promoters are out for the purchase of 50,000 ties, Hallelujahs will ring from the seven bills of Clarion whon this great event has been onsummated. At the top of each ballot, the Williams- port Sun announces for the enlighten ment of voters, there will be priuted in larue letters tho uames of tho different parties which have nominations, and large square will bo at the right of each party name "for a straight vole." Now, these party names and party squares will not be at the top of the ballot at all. They will be in a column at the left on the bal lot and arranged In the order of the voto cast bv each parly. Care ought to be taken not to misdirect the voter. The Kkpuhmcan has arranged with the publishers of the New York Tribune Farmer whereby wo can again make tho liberal oiler to our subscribers to supply the same to them for the nominal price o 25 cents per year. This offer is to all now subscribers paying in advance, and to all present ones paying up arrearages and one year in advance, plus the 23 cents in each case. You can scarcely af ford to miss this opportunity, as the Tri bune Farmer is one of the leading jour nals of its class in the United Stales. Let us hear from you. Ripe strawberries, picked from the vines on the 8th of October, Is not an ev ery day occurrence in this lattitude, but that little diversion was exercised by William McKee, whose farm Is located on the hill leading to the Stewart Run Postollice, about two miles from Tionesta. They were extra largo, juicy and of flue flavor, as the editor of the Hepuiimcan is ready to verify, having had a nice dish "laid on the table" on the date men tioned. No need of migrating to Califor nia to regale yourself with theso delica cies while you live right here in the tropics. Little Glenn Gelst, son ofourefficlent Prothonotary, J. C. Geist, is as Industri ous as a pino squirrel In the matter ol laying up a store for the winter. He has gathered noarly two bushels of hickory uuts thus far and the season is not closed yet. Glenn is not at all parsimonious with his crop, cither, having remembered us willi a nice basket of the rich nuts, for which he has our best thanks. James.Elliot, of Stewart Run, is of fering most of his live stock at public sale because he don't want to buy feed to winter them over. Tho sale will begin at 1:00 o'clock p. m., on Tuesday next, 20th inst., and the list Includes the fol lowing; Two yearling colts, one mare and colt, two work horses, four milch cows, three spring calves, one sulKy horse rake, one plow, one shovel-plow, one cuttor. terms, ..00 cash; sums over f". 00, six months time, with ap proved security. The Forest county teachers' institute will begin lis sessions at Marienville next Monday afternoon at 1:00 o'clock, and will coutinue till Friday noon fol lowing. Dr. A.J. Kinneman and Prof. K. M. McNeal have beou engaged as in structors and lecturers, and Prof. A. J. Moouey will haye charge of the musical features of the institute. A concert by the Dunbar male quartet is booked for Wednesday evening, and an entertain ment by Prof. Willard D. Howe, imper sonator, Thursday evening. The Opera House and Presbvlerian church will be utilized fur holding the sessions iu. Dr. F. S. Millor, an optician of re nown, has been at Marienville for the past two weeks, and has done an Immense amount of work In his line for people in that town and vicinity. His work invar iably gives satisfaction, and lb se who have employed him are ready to recom mend his skill. He has had many years' experience and is ready to furnish home references of unquestioned standing, so that those in need of his services may have no hesitancy in consulting him The Doctor will remain in Marienville for the next two woeks, or until after the close of the teacher' institute, giving all who wish, an opportunity to consult him. The 1'residont Oil company which recently purchased the larger portion ol the estate ol the late Edwin E. Clapp, in Piesideut and Pinegrove townships.have sold 12.000 acres of the timber land in President lown.-diip to the Grandin Lum her company, of Tidiouto. It is estimat ed that there are fro n 25,000,000 to 30,000.- 000 feet of pine lumber in the new pur chase. The Grandin company is getting ready to get it out. A complete and modern plant will be erected, including band sawmill, trimmers, edgers, match- ors, planers, re-saw, sningie ana jam mill. Much of the timber is of virgin pine and the last tract of any magnitude laft in Venango couu'y. Tho Boston team of the American base ball league is making it exceedingly entortaluing for tho Pittsburg champions of the National leaguo, the record up to this ponuing showing the superiority of he former in the series of games now be ing pulled off for the world's champion ship botween these two penant winners. Seven of the nine games have now been played, the last four on the Pittsburg grounds, and the bean-eaters have four of tbem to their credit. The last two games are to be played on the Boston grounds, and Pittsburg must wiu them both if she would lake the series. The proposiiiou is a tough one for our favorites, but they may be equal to tho task. P. S. The Bostoniaus were successful in winning the game yesterday, giving tbem five out ol tho nine games, and so the champion ship goes to the "hub." The County Commissioners of Jeff erson county were convicted last week of furnishing oleomargerino to the inmates of the county h une, the prosecution be ing brought in the name ol the Comruon weahh. There ai pears to have been no contention as to tho facts, the coinmis sioners admitting the charge to be true, and resting their case on the question of the constitutionality of the act of assein bly of May 2 Id, 18i3. Judge Reed was of the opinion that the act was constitution al, and in passing sentence used these words: "The defendants are not to lie teverelv censured or punished for uot knowing that it was a valid piece of leg islation obligatory upon them. I am convinced that the ends of justice will be fully met upon the payment by them of the costs and in the aggregato the pay merit of a line of one hundred dollars." The season hastens hitherward when its nip and tuck between the seductive chestnut tree and the trusty fowling-piece as to which shall bag the most human game. As long as our sportive fellow citizens and idiots keep dragging loaded shotguns out ot the tail-ends of wagons and throuirh tho brush, we'll bet our hard-earned money on the shotgun's score. The great company or it's perfo rated ghosts that yearly set foot ou the shining strand of the Beyond will testify to the promptness and reliability of the fowling-piece in improving an advantage its aptitude in getting busy on the short est notice while you wait, as it were. 'Tis true, the chestnut tree has its bum ble claims in the sporting lino. It's quite a success as a bono-breaker and crust bu'ster in the case of those who select the air-line route iu descending from it. But, compared with the shotgun, ic is defic ient in variety of resource and sluggish getting there. Franklin Spectator. letter to J. I. Hilling. Tionesta, Pa.

Adam Cunler, Well Known Here, Is Blown lo At:.ins. Adam Cupler, one of Hie best known oil well shooters an I manufacturers of high explosives in tho Pennsylvania oil field, and who has done practically all of the well shooting in this vicinity within the past few years, was instantly killed near East Titusville about 7 o'clock on Monday morning of this week. Mr. Cupler, who had been carrying on the business of manufacturing nitro glycerine at Titusville in partnership with Nelson Francis, had practically re- ired from the business of shooting wells, he firm having in its em ply two expert shooters, but where there were three wells to be shot at the same time it was his practice to take one of the wagons himself. This vas the case Monday morning. The other two men were en gaged, one to shoot a well at Goodwill Hill, aud other at the English Settlement, and Mr. Cupler bad Btarted to Fagundus to shoot a well in that field for Ami s Clinger. The magazine is situated about a quarter of a mile from East Titusville, and the scene of the fatality was on the public highway three-quarters of a mile from the magazine. At 6:30 o'clock Mr. Cupler placed two cans ot the explosive in the wagon. One contained eight and the othor two quarts. About 7 o'clock D. P, Clark, a neighbor, beard the sound of the explosion, and Btarted in that direct ion. He met the team treed from the wagon galloping down the road. A short distance further on he found the lower portion of the legs of Mr. Cupler. The force of the explosion seemed to be for ward and upwards, as the dust in the wagon road was scarcely disturbed. The body bad ' eon blown through the limbs of a large r ak tree at the side or the road, and fragments of the clothing and tlesti were banging on the larger limbs. There was not a piece left or wagon box larger than the palm of a man's hand. The spokes bad been ripped out ot the rim and the axle was bent in a crescent shape. The body was found eighty feet away, having been blown forward and a little to one side of the wagou road. The back and neck were broken and the back had beeu cut open from between the shoulder blades lo the small of the back, and the internal organs were exposed. One arm was twisted until it wss a shapeless mass, hanging by shreds of the skin and sin ews. Mr. Clark covered the body with a blanket aud telephoned the news of tho tragedy to Tilusvillo. The body was taken in charge and removed to the un dertaking rooms of A. K. Brown, Titus ville, where it ws prepared for burial. The cause of the explosion is thought to have been due to friction, the fault of leaky nilro-glycerine cans permitting some of the explosive to escape, which in turn may have got under the vessels, and whon the wheels of the wagon struck a plank which lay in the road where tho accident occurred, precipitated the trag edy. Mr. Cuplor was bum at Big Run, Jef ferson county, Pa., April 2, 1847, aud was married 29 years ago. He is survived by his widow and lour children, Mrs. Clar ence Mosher and Harty, Grace and Lulu, a'l of Titusville. Mrs. Cupler and her married daughter had bocn al Warren vis iting friends, and were at the station about to leave for Titusville when they were informed of the accident. Deceased was a member of the A. O. U. W. and Masonic fratornities, aud was be yond question one of the most popular residents of Titusville, If not in the en tire local oil field. Mysterious Death Yoimgr of a Lady. .Marienville A dispatch from Findley Lako, N. Y., under date or 12th lust., gives an account of the mysterious death of Miss Iva Es tella Confer, of Marienville, Pa., at the Lake House on last Sunday night. Miss Confer came to the hotel last Wednesday and registered as Nellie Gray, of Pitts burg. There was nothing about her ap pearance to indicate that she was ill, and it was supposed that she was enjoying an outing. A little before miduight Sunday the landlady heard the young lady moaning in her room and went in to see what might be the matter. The girl appeared vory ill and Dr. Chapin was called in haste, but before he arrived Miss Confer was dead. Coroner Blood was called and took charge of the case, which is being thor oughly Investigated. A search of hor bag gage, consisting of au imitation russet leather dress suit case, was made in hopes of finding some clue to the dead girl's relotives. In a book tho name and ad dress, lva Estella Confer, Matienville, Pa., was found. The clothing was mark ed with the initials I. E. C, and locket she wore was marked with same initials, Inside the locket was the picture of i young man about 20 yoars of age, with smooth face and curly hair, partsd in the middle. The voting lady had a face and form of more than ordinary beauty. She was about five feet two inches in height, weighed about 130 pounds, and had browu hair and eyes. A later dispatch says: Investigation by Coroner Blood late Monday afternoon disclosed the fact that Miss Confer had died from the ell'ocis of a criminal opera tion. Dr. Henry F. Chapin has been ar rested by Sheriff Cooper, charged with having performed It. (iinitiberliiiii'H CoiikIi It rm city.
