There Is nothing especially new to he reported in connection with tbe terrible tragedy enacted at tbe Longstreth borne in Green township, on Tuesday morning of last week, in which Leonard Johnson, ot Mercer county, shot and Instantly killed his wife and then committed sui cide by shooting himself through the head with the same revolver, in both In stances death being instantaneous. The account of the affair as portrayed In tbe Rei'tTiir.iCAN next day after it happened was practically correct In all particulars. On Thursday last the body of Johnson was taken through here to the home of his mother, Mrs. Jamrs Eastlick, near Fredonia, Mercer county, where the fu neral services were beld on Friday. Ac companying the body were William and Sandy Ka tlick, step-brothers of the de ceasrd. Until they arrived in Oil City on their way to Nebraska, they were un aware that Johnson had killed his wfe before taking his own life. The Eastlick brothers are intelligent young men, and, wbile grieving over the untimely and tragio end of their step brother, talked unreservedly about the character and habits of the suicide. He was 31 years of age and had been reared in Mercer coun ty. His wife, who was Viola Cousins, was 21 years of age, and an orphan. About four years ago, wbile Johnson was employed as a shearsmao in the New Castle tin plate mills, he became ac quainted with bis future wife, who was em ploy ad as a domestic with a New Cas tle family, Later, Leonard returned to Mercer and in a short time Miss Cousins came there and was employed at tbe home of Rev. Mr. McKelvy at the time of her marriage with Leonard Johnson. After a short residence at Meroer follow ing tbe marriage they removed to Green ville, where Johnson bought a property and had a e unfortably furnished home, and, according to tbe story told by bis relatives, bis wife wanted for nothing. Johnson was not a drinking uian, neither was he quarrelsome. Later Orlando Longstreth, uucle of Johnson's wife, se cured employment for him in tbe lumber woods, and they removed to Forest coun ty, where' tbe final separation took place. Of late Johnson had been employed as assUtant baggagemaster at MvICeesport, where be made his home with a married sister. His father died when he was In bis inlancy and bis mother married J as. Eastlick, of Mercer. On Saturday prior to the tragedy James Eastlick had a birthday celebration aud family reunion and Johnson aud his married sister came up f-orn McKeesport to attend it. Joliu son Beemed in high spirits and unusually jovial. On Saturday morning he went to see II. W. Grigsby, Esq., at New Castle, guardian for bis wife. He asked him to make an allowance for some money be bad paid out for medical attendance for his wife. He came direct to Oil City Monday and during the short wait be tween trains be purchased the ounce of laudanum, which be drank before firing tbe bullet into his brain. He made no secret of his intentions of going to Ne braska, explaining tbe object of bis visit 'as to collect $20 that was due him for lab or "e M'80 sait' be e' n warn id that it would not be safe for him lo retu -n to Forest county, but did not Intimate .'ual he 1,8(1 "rn'ea him8elf t1j0 fune,al services of Mrs. Johnson were held at .'ue residence of her uncle, Orlando Longsreth. 1,18 ""e of tl,e 8ad affair, at 1 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, Rev.

TheGrandin Lumber Co. has begun operations on its President Twp pur chase, A mill is being erected on the J. C. Stephens farm at Eagle Rock on the west side of the river. Although pre liminary surveys were made with the idea of building a temporary bridge, it was found impracticable. Instead sus pended cablo power will be used to trans port the logs acroi-s the river to tbe mill and a contract has been made with the Lidgerwood Cableway Co. to put up such an apparatus. The, distance, 1200 foet, will be spanned by a 21 inch Bteel cable mounted on towers the one ou the east bank to he 30 leet high and on the west bank 80 feet. On these towers the cable will be mounted. On this calle will run a carrier, taking the logs from the car and depositing Ibem in the pond or at the mill, all automatically. The ca pacity of this carrier is fifteen tons aud it aud it is guaranteed to make ten round trips an hour, carrying this load each trip. The motive power, a dou ble cylinder tandom friction engine with cylinders 12x12 Inches. This method of transportation, while new as connected with tbe lumber business at least of this section, has proved successful in quarry ing and miuiiig, with cables of much greater length than tbe one herewith spoken of. Its installation at Eagle Rock will be watched with interest. It is calculated that six or eight weeks will see the work completed. Tidioute News. Some Bargains. Some $10.00 Coats for 85 00.

Once again, at the Christmas tide, death hasthrown itsshadowacroFsthe threshold of one of our nappy homes, and has left a hearth stone desolate. A fainted mother has been taken from her loved on earth where tho world Is one of joy, reminding us that "our life is scarce the twinkling of a star in God's eternal day." Another has left our midst and joined the immor tal throng. One whose work has been well done and who is now at rest. A member of a family whom little For est delights to honor. The grand daughter ofone of the earliest pioneers, and the daugh'er of one whose record has passed into history as "one of the nation's noblemen." We speak of the late Hon. Alexander Hole'man, whose eldest daugb ler, Elizabeth S., the subject of our sketch, died in Tlonesta, Thursday, Dec 17, 1003, at 1:0.'. Eliibeth Holemai, wh o- was a daughter of Alexander and Clarissa Sexton Holeman, was born at Holeman's Ferry, Venango, (now Forest) county, April 10, 1820. Being blessed with intel ligent parents she was enabled to obtain a fair iducation regardless of the meager advantages those early days afforded' When in her twenties he was united in msrriage to Dr. W. F. Hunter, of Tiones ta, who, till the time of his death, some twenty-seven years ago, was a leading physician of this place. Their union was blessed witli one son and four daugh ters, all of whom grew to manhood and womanhood and survive their parents except tho eldest daughter, Jennie, who died years ago. Their home was one where love abounded and the death of the fUlier was a heavy sorrow. As a wife and mother, Mrs. Hunter was devoted, faithful, tender, loving and warmly ap preciative of the boundless love and un dying devotion not only of ber children by nature, but also ot her cnlldren by marriage. Of the children who remain are; Minnie, wife of Albert W. Grove, the well known oil producer, who was to her as an only son; Misses Clara and Nettie, at home, and Dr. Frank S. Hunter, a dentist of high repute, and his wile, Mrs. Jessie Hunter. Mrs. Hunter was one of eight children, four of whom survive her: Mrs. J. G. Dale, of Tionesta; Mrs. Mary Maze, ol Clarlngton ; John Holeman, of Pleasant vllle, and Richard Holeman of Mill Vil lage. When but sixteen, Mrs. Hunter was converted and united with the Methodist Episcopal church, of tionesta, and for almost three score and (en years, she has been a devoted christian. The funeral services were conducted at ber late residence on Saturday after noon at two o'clock, by ber pastor, Rev. O. II. Nickle, assisted by a former pas tor, Kov. C. C. Rumberger, of Big Run, Pa. As she lay in stato in her beautiful borne am idst a profusion of costly floral offerings, even the natural heart could not but say "She Is not dead but sltep e:h." At the close of the services, her body was laid to rest in tbe beautiful riverside cemetery, beside that of her husband. AUI.bTRAM). John M. Ahlstrand, one of Erie county's old and prominent citizens died at his home in Mill Village, Pa., on Friday night, December If, 1003, after an illness of several weeks. Ho had not been in robust health for some months back, but ha J not been confined to the house. Mr. Al lstraud is well remembered by a large circle of our citizens, having for a number of years been a resident ot Tionesta, locating here about 18fi", where he conducted a store for several years, arterward moving to East Hickory, Pa. From there he tnovod to Mill Village, where he was united in marriage with Miss Ellen Huuter, youngest daughter of the late William Hunter, and wheie be continued to reside, with the exception of a year or moro spent in Jamestown, N. Y., until his demise. Mr. Ahlstrand was Irom early manhood a devout aud active member of the Methodist Episcopal church aud was never abseut from its services when it was possible for him lo be there. In bis death bis community loses a splendid citizen, and tbe church a sirjng pillar. Mr. Ahlstrand was aged about 72 years, and besides bis widow, leaves a host of warm personal friends to mourn his decease. The funeral was beld on Sabbath last, and we learn was attended by an immense concourse of sympathizing neighbors aud friend. His nephew, Charles Hunter, or ibis place, was in attendance. LANDERS. The passiug away of this truly good woman occured ou Sunday morning about one o'clock, after au illness of some three weeks, aged 68 years, eight months and three days. Her maiden name was Bridget Doyle, aud she was born in Cooperstown, County Kilkouny, Ireland, April 17, 183"i, and came to America in tho year 1854, to join a sister and two brothers, who bad preceded her to this country a short time before. At Kinzua, Pa., on October l.'i, 1800, slie be came the wife of Adoniram Judson Land ers, a rormer well knowu lumberman whoso death occured here March 31, 18HT. Four children, two sous and two daugh ters, were born to them as a resultof this union, tho daughters dying when quite young. She also proved to be a kind aud affectionate mother to two orphan child ren, a son aud a daughter adopted into the lamily. The son, Will, meeting his death in a boiler explosion near Snyders burg, Clarion county, where the family was living, some thirty years ago, She Is therefore surv.ved by one daughter, (Minnie M.,) now Mrs. E. W. Bowman, aud two sons, James J., and Joseph W. Landers, all residents of Tionerta. It can truthfully be said of her that she did not live for self, but was a true home mother In every sense of the word, no duty being too great for her to perlorm for those she loved, and her passing away leayos a vacancy that can never be filled by those near and dear to her. Mrs. Landers joined the M. E. church at Youngsyillo, Pa., in the year lb7.", re maining a steadfast, consistent meinburof that church until the end. She was also a charter inomber of Irwin Couucil, No. 77, U. T. of T., of Tionesta, and carried an insurance of 2,000 in that order in favor of her children. The burial took place from her late home in this placn ou Tuesday Bl'teriioiiii at 2 o'clock, and was largely "attended. Her pastor Kov. O. II. Nickle, assisted by Rev. F. M.

Y., Sept. 3d, 1832, ud died at his borne in Columbus, Pa., Deo. 0th, 1003. He was the second ch id and oldest sou of Mr. aud Mrs. Harry Southworth. Two sis ters and a brother shared with him their .parents' love, of which there is surviving only the brother, Charles Southworth, now residing near Buck Mills, Pa. His youlh and early manhood was passed at Clarkesvillo and Portville, N. Y. He secured as good an education as Lis opportunities permitted, and, beiug of a mechanical b nt, early gave his at tention to learning the trade of wagon making, entering the shop of Wm. Gas tou, of Portville, and becoming a profic ient wbeelright. While living at Port ville, in 1800, he married Miss Martha Ualbert, of Boliver, N. Y. Soon after his marriage tbe storm which had for years been threatening our coun try, broke in its fury. Sumpter was tired upon. Lincoln issued his call for 73,000 troops. Our brother beard that call and quickly responded. Loving his home, he loved his country ; and, at ber call, went forth lo do or die for ber. Filled with enthusiastic patriotism, he set about raising a company, and, with bis comrades, was in usten d into the 8ulh Regt. N. Y. V., at Elmira, in IStil. He was made 1st Lieutenant of bis company, and served with distinction aud marked bravery during the three years for which he had enlisted. At tbe close of that time lie resigned his lieutouancy, re turned home aud again took up his work at the bench. But dangers were still threatening. Those darkest hours which gave us Fredricksburg and Richmond and (hr battle of the Wilderness were up on the nation and again he laid by the square and plane and chisel to don bis old uniform and shoulder his musket. Ue waited not for an opportunity to re gain the rank he had resigned, but en listed as a private, terving valorously until the close of tho war. In 1808, ho removed from Portville to Sherman, N. Y. Here, Juno 1st, 1873, Mrs, Southworth died, leaving two chil dren, Cora and Eugene. Some time after the doath of his liri-t wile, Mr. Soutbwor h remarried, taking as his bride Miss Adeliu Lamona, of Co lumbus, Pa. Thoy soon removed to Forest County, where he was employed in lumber manufacturing, boing with Wheoler, Diisenbuiy i0 Co., for some years. While in that seetiou he joined the G. A. R., enrolling as a member of Stow Post, at Tionesta. Ho afterward transferred to the Post at Marlenville, where he continued to hold his member ship. A mail of strong patiiolisui, he always loved bis country and his flag. He was a member of the Forest county Veterans' Association and was Bctive in its work until moving from that sectii u. Mr. Southworth has never hren con nected with any religious organ zation a member thereof, but diintu a portion of his life was actively engaged in religious work, assisting in conducting a Sun day school aud other religious snrviecs at Sheffield Junction. He believed in the love and power ol'Go l, the full truth of tbe ltiblo and man's duty to live right eously. Wherever he has lived, be has been known as an upright, honest, use ful citizen. He wus an ardent Republi can, active in tho work of his pirty, though never seekiug any of tho rewards of party service. While his health has not been good for some mouths, he has been able to he at work much of the time. The afternoon before he was stricken he was at li s bench. All that love and skill could do was employed to prolong his life, but the disease, pneumonia, progressed rap idly lo a fatal termination, hiiiI he died, surrounded by his sorrowing lamily, af ter an illness of 8 days. He is survived by his widow and five children : Eugene, of Warren, Pa., Mrs. Minnie Southworth Loveland, of C'orry, and liatlie, Florence and Hoy, of Colum bus, Pa. Ho will be mitsed. A good BoKliei, a good citizen, a good mechanic, a good man, he leaves to us all a heritage of worth, the memory or one who lived a clean, useful, upright life, one who has loft the world better for his having lived in it. HIS W1FI5. ALSO. Adelia A. Southworth, his wife, died Dec. 11 aud whs buried the 14th. The cause of hr death was also pneumonia. She was aired o0 years and two months.
