Tlie first requisite for business suc
cess Is to establish a reputation for the
prompt payment of all bills. No man
will succeed iu business unless he is
thoroughly honost and pays his bills
cheerfully, and with au apology rather

take pride In giving to every man his

spectability iu the community iu which
he resides. Young iiihu just eutorlng
business should have this truth forcibly
impressed upon them, for credit is tlie
best part of any man's capital, and with

John Charleston Dies From Accident.
John Charleston, a citizen for ninny

some hard substance, and was so pain
fully hurt that be had to be carried to his
home, a distance of about two miles, on a
cot. Physicians were summoned, but it
was Impossible to determine at once
whether he had sustained any internet
injuries, Friday night Dr. Siggins, of
Oil City, was called in consultation, and
on Saturday morning an operation was
determined upon as the only chance of
saving Mr, Charleston's lite. It was
found that tbe concussion had been so
great as to rupture the bladder; and con
ditions were such as to render surgical
skill unavailing, and at 10:30 the unfor
tunate man passed away.
The death of Mr. Charleston, especially
under such distressing circumstances was
a great shock to this whole community,

September 11, 1832, at Roherda, Hesse
Cassel, (iermany. Coming to this coun
try with her uncle, Bernard Bush, in a
sailing ressel when right years of age,
she might be called a life long resident of
Pennsylvania. The voyage was made In
seven weeks, which was considered to be
great speed in those days, but very slow
compared with tlie voyages now made in
as many days. She left Germany about
May 1st, landing in Baltimore in July.
Went thence to Pittsburg by canal boat
and up tlie Allegheny River to what is
now Nebraska in a lumber wagon. These
journeys are given to show the hardships
and difliciilty of travel in those early
days and are Interesting at the present
time. Site remained in hor uncle's family
one year and lived in the family of A. B.
Root one year. In 1811 she went to Ross

was best appreciated by those who knew

years of age, cheerful and sunny in dis
