Tho soldiors of peace present a war liko aspect 011 tho field of Gettysburg. Owing to tho low condition of the river it is impossible to operato tho freo ferry at Nescopcck. The Bloouisburg borough Council has instructed its solicitor to prepare an ordinance that will imposo a line ol* $5 on any person spitting ou the sidewalks of that town and imprison ment if the liuo is not paid. The vegetables in tho farmers' wag ons these mornings look appetizing. The average fisherman would prob ably bo willing to do without rain for a lew days. From tho various seashore rosorts comes the usual wail, by tho fair sex, of tho scarcity ol' eligible young men. It is a tact that tho average young man of good digestion prefers the ex hilarating life of mountain camp or fishing ground to tho so-called gayeties of the summer hotel. Tho bald-headed man is full of trou bles theso days, and does not know which brand of fly paper is really best. About fifteen members of the Ladies' Missionary Society of the Grove Pres byterian church of Danvillo attended tho "Lawn Social" at Mooresburg last Friday evening.

Raymond Skommel, of Shamokin, a prisoner at tho Northumberland couu ty jail serving a two and one-half year I sentence for burglary, complained of 1 not feeling well during tho past fow days ami on Wednesday morning it was found that ho was suffering from typhoid fever. Hois a pretty sick man. Farmers in Kansas and Nebraska twre working night aud day to savo as much as possible of tho wheat crop damaged by the recent heavy rains. Many mil lions ot bnshols, in fact SO per cent, of tho finest crop in years will be lost by rust and decay. Tho loss will att'oot not only tho growers, but tho freight earning capacity of tho railroads. A number of racing onthusiasts of Shamokin made an iuspeotion of Edgo wood Park on Suturday, with a view to building a half-milo track in tho roar of tho picnic grounds. It is pro nouuoed a good placo for a track and horses will likely be running over it next summer,but the jockius will hurt tho roputation ot tho Park. A number of citizeus of Point town ship, Northumberland county, who are dissatisfied with tho location of a section of tho mail routo for the rural delivery, rocently determined, sent , several representatives to Milton to confer with Cougressmau Dickcrman and have him uso his inHuouco for a readjustment of tho route. i Mr- 'it lliflu r, '»• tr of ««nt i kind tt« ig'»l«y Mm.

On Friday and Saturday nouie rain fell, ending up the situation somewhat, but did not soak the Hoil. Oats are lieginning to ripen, and will l>e ready for the binder in a Jew days. John M. Smith cut some last week. He forced the season, but could not help it, liin lield being quite ripe. Wheat is pretty well secured in the barns, though there is still some standing out. Mr. T. O. Bailey lias added an addition to his shoe and harness shop, made nec essary by the rush of business he is hav ing. Mr. J. N. 11 err has painted all his out buildings, which greatly adds to the ap pearance of his home. Who will Itenext to follow his examples? A number of farmers are digging their potatoes, fearing the rot. The tops are blighted and rot is likely to follow, if wet weather should set in. Luther and Raymond Glaze, of Jersey Shore, arrived at Turbotville on Monday evening to visit relatives iu this ueigh borhood. They are sons of lie v. A, H. Glaze. Mr. Charles Bort/. goes about with a very large smile 011 his countenance these days. Well, lie has a good reason, for it's a boy that came to his house last Thursday. Mr. Charles Cotner, Limestoneville, bought the farm belonging to tbe estate of (ieorge \V. Smith, now occupied by Koscoe Bortz. The price paid was four thousand dollars. Mr. and Mrs. Paul M. Wert man, of Buffalo, New York, are here visiting friends and relatives. Tney are both at tendants at the State Hospital in that city, lie expects to return in a few days, but she will remain here. The thrashing machines are now at work and will be busy till some time in the late Fall. The owners report fair yields of wheat, when they have thrashed, in proportion to the straw, but not to the acre. The grain is plump and will be up to legal weight. At the time of writing (Monday) the weather is remarkably cool, especially mornings and evenings. The thermome ter ranges from 58 to tiS° in the morning and hits rarely reached higher than 09°. On the morning of the 14 of this month it stood at 50°. Vegetation does not seem to suffer much from the effects of the cool weatner. Win. Levi Kchloppick met with u seri ous mishap, on last Saturday. He is the owner of a thrashing outlit.

It will be sometime before he am get to work again and this is his busy season, too. July 25, 1004. BW.L. Cost of War Correspondence. Now, in figuring the cost of corres pondence, commercially—taking the Manchuria campaign, for instance— the average telegraph toll per word is fifty cents. The rate from Chefu, Shanghai and Tientsin to New York is forty-two cents a word; from Tokio, fifty-four ceuts. Each correspondent sends about 10(10 words a week. So there is an outlay of about SIOO,OOO per week for messages. The 200 875 a week snlary, making $16,000. Their interpreters, servants and mess and forage require about $15,000. Incidentals bring the total outlay up to $150,000 a week for the 200. In addition, several newspapers employ dispatch boats, for which they pay something like SISOO a week each for charter and maintenance. Though this ex)ieuditure for the Russo-Japanese war may strike the ordinary reader as extravagantly high, it isn't extravagant at all when compared with the actual outlay of $50,000 a week by one newspaper during the Spanish war. <)n the personal side, the cost can not be computed in dollars. It's a matter of death or disability. The correspondent is down and out, and his value is to lie reckoned only by the tears of his mother or his wife and children at home. Missionary Society, The Missionary Societies of the Grove and Mahoning Presbyterian churohes held a very interesting meet ing ill the lecture room of the Mahon ing church last evening. Mrs. W. K. Thomas of Lowisburg, vioe president of the Northumberland Presbyterlal Society addressed the meeting.

Large pieces of perfectly preserved bark and wood of clear grain huve been brought to the surface. The wood is of very hard texture, and the tree is estimated to have been between two and three feet in diameter. Nervous troubles may be provoked in animals, as with us. The fear that horses show toward locomotives or automobiles is the cause of trembling and temporary paralysis, whose real origin is often unnoticed. Fear of punishment in small animals or joy at seeing a beloved master has given rise to nervous crises that have been mistaken for epilepsy. One summer a country house was so over-run by ants that the owner, after destroying a large ant-hill near the house and collecting tho numer ous pupae for poultry feed, laid sticky fly-paper before the door of the house in such a manner that the ants could not enter without crossing it. 11l the morning he found his poultry feed gone and the fly-paper covered with sand, dry grass and pine need les, over which the ants bad passed "dry-shod." The ant-hill bad also been rebuilt during the night. Ages of Political Candidates. The notion that the relative nge of candidates plays an important part in the selection of u nominee for the sec ond place does not seem to he borne out by the facts, says Harper's Week ly. An assertion has of late been current in the press to the effect, first that Theodore Hoosevelt and John C. Breckinridge are the only men who, when they were inaugurated Vice Presidents, could fairly be described as young; and, secondly, that, most frequently, Vice Presidents have been older than the corresponding Presi dents. It is true that Theodore Roosevelt was but 43 aud John C. Breckinridge only 30 at the date of their inauguration; but John C. Cal houn was only 43, Schuyler Colfax only 4G aud Millard Fillmore only 49. As regards the second statement, George Washington, John Adams, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, William H. Har rison, Zachary Taylor, James Bu chanan aud William McKinley were older than their respective Vice Pres idents. Thomas Jefferson was older than Aaron Burr, aud younger than George Clinton. Abraham Lincolu was of the same age as Hannibal Hamlin and only one year younger than Andrew Johnson. Grant was older than Colfax, but younger than Wilson. Garfield was just one year younger than Arthur. Evidently, it is not the consideration of respective age, but the question of locality and political expediency that determines the designation of a nominee for the Vice Presidency.

These are gracious drop*, hut the Hon. Kdward Hubert Butler ought to keep them. His lawn may need watering in August. For Mr. Davis actually tires out physically men half his age according to the almanac. A jaunt of 260 miles to and from' Ksopus and a day of political consul tation, interspersed with social enter tainment and with facing the immin ent deadly camera are a picnic to him, although a distinguished Buffalo citizen, the Hon. Norman Kdward Mack, is fatigued by considerably less labor on this same E.sopu? excursion. Last year •'the rich man of past four-score" was taking a ride of 250 miles into the gaping jaws of West Virginia, just for fun, exercise and the collection of horseshoes. Mr. Davis is one of thoi-o rare men against whom Time forge os to score. He may be described as well pre served man of 50, two yer.rs younger (liaii his well oiled competitor, the Hon. Charles Warren Fair mnks. Doubtless there will be increasing solicitude among the Republicans as to the age aud condition o Mr. Davis; and the cruelty of the St. Louis con vention will be reprobated sternly or piteously. But the Man Who Can't Get Old will continue to bo an engaging ligure. MR. HALL'S GOOD LUCK. Stole Cliulrmnn Reported to hove Struck Oil on One of His Properties.

The largo barn on the Furdy farm near Fine Swamp Hollow,Rdsli town ship, was totally destroyed by fire on Sunday night. The farm is tenanted by Simon D. VViand. The fire was discovered about 10:45 o'clock after the family had re tired and before Mr. Wiand could reach the barn the Uarnes bad gained so much headway that it was impossi ble to savo auy ot the contents of the building. Three horsos wore burned to death aloug with many valoablo farm ing implements. A good stock of hay aud grain but recently harvested was also oonsumed by the flames. The cows which had been left in the barnyard were rescued with much diffloulty. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Wiand whose loss not only in live stock and grain is considerable, but tho misfortune coming in the midst of harvest time will prove a serious handicap. The origin of the fire is un known. Tho flames were plainly seen from tho river bank in this city. Eagles Mere Excursion.
