We have to lay before our readers the record of an accident, tiie details, of tvliich are sickening in the extreme. On Mon day afternoon (yesterday) a messenger oanie into town post-haste, and summoned Dr. P. H4 Wever to the house of Mr. Samuel Hoop, about four miles east of Ilillsboro, near the IIoup school house Arrived there he found Mrs. Hoop in a terrible condition, bciiiK badly burned from head to foot, and apparently past le lief, except by the kindly hand of death It seems that, while her husband was away from home, just after dinner, and while in the act of taking something out of the eve of one of iier children, Mrs. Hoop went too near the fire-place, and in an instant her clothes caught fire. In this fearful emergency she had presence of mind enough to seize a bucket of water and attempt to pour it over herself, there being no one near, save her three children, too small to render any assistance. Either her hand swerved under the excitement however, or the fire had gone too far for the brave woman, for when, iu answer to her screams, the neighbors came iu, they found her clothing completely burned off, and htr bodv seared over from head to foot. Remedies were at once applied to allay the intense agony of her suffering. It was at first thought that a few hours would end it ; but tho doctor, this morning, after second visit, is of the opinion that she may possibly recover. Mr. and Mrs. Hoop livj in ierv Ijr'u hle way, iu a rented cabin in the woods. At best it is difficult for the husband to keep the wolf away. There are five chil dren to care for, and winter is upon tliem. In this hour of sorest need, with the "merry Christmas" chimes ringing in our ears, aud gaiety our only aim, it would not be out of place to show in a substan tial way that we are actuated by souieriiug' of the charity of Him whose birth is about to be celebrated. In the absence of any organized effort furnish the relief suggested, if any one desires to contribute out of his or her abundance to so worthy an object, tie News will see that the aid reaches afflicted family.

The ghost, or mysterious woman in black, that had the southern portion of town on the ragced edce a year a?o, is again on the war-path. She now confines nrn.A ,.. .1. u y llJC uuou-, uoinei of town, and the west end of Lafayette street. She (or As, as we are of the opin- ion that the "shost" is nothing more nor less than some young man, playing hid pranks for the mere sake of fun) a few evenings sines put in an appearance at the back window 01 Mr. James Kobbins' harness shop and stood peeping in. James did r.ot notice her L'host-shiD until his at- tention was attracted bv a slight tap on his window. He looked up anil, sure enough, there stood the goblin, dressed black from head to foot, appearing some 7 or 8 feet high. James invited her to the fire, but she refused to come. He then made motions to strike her through the window, but she still stood there. James, getting tired of such fool- ishness, struck out after her with a ?ood- sized cudgel in his hand. He overhauled her in the alley near Norton's warehouse and gave her a good thumping, bat did not succeed in discovering who she was, in making her speak. She could not stand the pounding, and lit out lip the alley. We advise the ghost to stop her pranks before she gets hart. There is such a thing as carrying a joke too far. . 155!ck!tr Arnica Salve.
