I couid easily reduce its price by lowering its quality, but Rood cream, of fresh, puro, wholosomo ingredients, cannot do furnishod at a less price than I servo it.

CoDrad Cramer, a boy of fifteen ycarr, met his death yesterday, in a maimer as horrible as it was singular. Ho had been employed in hauling coal dirt from a culm pilo to Iho boiler house at tho Holleobaok shafr, Wilkesbarre, Pa. Tho dirt was plaood iu a car whioh ran over a narrow traok laid on the top of the ooal culm, and to which a mule wasattaohed. It was tho habit of tho boy to jamp upon tho mule's back, after dumping the load, and ride over tho return trip. Yesterday the mule acted badly,and on several oocasiocs attempted to throw his rider, bat the lad clung to him, greatly to tbc amusement of a large gang of men who wero employed in the vicinity, and who laughed heartily at what they termed the mule's "circus tricks." .But their mirth was suddenly turned to mourning. The persistent efforts of the mule to throw his rider ended at last in 6uc cess, and in falling off tho boy's legs bo 3ame entangled in the harness, when the mule began to kioh furiously at the lad. Bifhre assistanoo anivod, tbc animal, fairly enraged, bounded forwsrJ, and, with tho speed of the wind, ran off toward a pieoe of woods netr by, tho body of tho poor lad, in tho meantime, being dragged aloog over sharp stones, ragged boulders an innumerable ugly projections. Tho boy hung directly in froDt of tho mule's foreegs, aed when tho animal 6topped, which ho lid when he reached the woods, ho s.izsdone jf tho boy's arms ia bis toeth and literally :ora it into fragments. Ho then nltaclcel other portions of tho bruised acd bleeding oody, and with a fiendish malignity tore open ;bo breast, thigh and back, laying the bones oaro in many plaocs. Those who witnessed ;ho flight cf the mu'e hurried to the assistance jfthe'boyas quickly as possible; but when tbey reached bim life was extinct and tbc body mangled boyond recognition. Tbc old miners, who had looked upon death in almost every Form, tnrocd their heads away iovoluntarily, iokenod at tho horrible tight before them.
