THE Witherspoon Institute has been moved to town for the winter, and is located in Berg's building, third story. THE disease of the throat which has afflicted poultry of this country lately, causing the death of thousands, has abated. GLASS while at red heat is plunged into oil and made so hard that mortars and pes tiles may be manufactured in that way. THE number of people employed by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, on all lines and branches, is estimated at nearly ' 100,000. THE school teachers of Mercer county have struck against the system of "boaraing around," and the directors nave abol ished it.

THE borough authorities of Salts burgh, Indiana county, have issued an edict gronibiting the circulation of the Pittsburgh unday Leader in that place on Sunday. TANKING, one of the most important of the industries of Butler county, has been neatly benefited by the recent large advance in the price of leather, it having gone up eleven cents per pound.

A LITTLE son, aged about three years, of Mr. Albert Morrison, of Penn town ship, this county, was so severely scalded on Monday of last week that it died the next day. The accident happened by the oversetting a pot of hot water upon It. THB epidemic of ocean disasters con tinues to rage, though none of a very disas trous nature are reported. Heavy gales both on oar own coast and on that of Great Britain have caused many wrecks, and in addition to this there are a great number of collisions. 0. P. COCHRAN, teacher of Pen manship, Ac., at Witherspoon Institute will conduct a night school in Writing, at the Insti tute rooms, in Berg's Building, on Main street. Will meet at 7 P. M., on Wednesday evening of this week, to organize. Lessons will be given in Commercial Arithmetic and Book Keeping if desired. 8 THE aim of the Census Office in its choice of special agents to report on prominent industries, has evidently been to select those whose names wonld be a guarantee of fitness for their tasks. We find Mr. Goodspeed selected for railroads, Mr. Wines for drunkeness, Mr. Brewer for grains, Mr. Weeks for wages, Mr. Pumpellv for mining at the East, and Mr. Brown Goode for fish. PITTSBURGH seem to be a "head center" for the trade in wagon hardware. A Pittsburgh firm, Messrs. Lewis, Oliver A Phil ips, employ about 700 men upon wrought iron wagon fittings. They control nearly 100 pat ents, covering the devices nsed ana the pro cesses for taming out the different parts by machinery. The firm makes the necessary fittings for 90,000 wagons per annum. Two men recently started from Min neapolis, Minn., on the same train, carrying conflicting deeds to a piece of land in Sioux Falls, and each resolved to get his document recorded first. As they approached that city one of them climbed apon the engine, slipped the coupling, left the train take care of itself, and rushed on, securing a record of his title half an hoar before his rival, who had waited for another locomotive. A OERMAN chemist has discovered a means of coloring the eyes of animals or human beings any color he choses. As speci mens of the results of his discovery he now exhibits a dog with a rose-colored eye, a cat ' with an orange-red <ye and a monkey with a chrome-yellow eye. Moreover, he presents a negro man with one eye black and the other blue and a negro woman with one gold-colored and the other silver white. A WELL-TO-DO farmer in Perry county was splendidly taken in by a brace of sharpers a few weeks ago. He bought a windmill from the rogues, and then signed a paper which he thought was a contract to act as an agent for the sale of windmills in that county. The papers he signed tunred out to b« a negotiable note for 1300, which the men sold to a third party. The windmills were forwarded and are now for sale below oost price. A GREAT deal of discussion is going on at present as to the best way of taking the lives of persons convicted of capital crimes Mr. Park Benjamin, a well-known scientific expert in applied mechanics, advocates electric ity as the best substitute for the process of hanging criminals. He dissents from Professor Drapers opinion, that it would be found very diftcalt to pat electricity into practical opera tion for the purpose. On the contrary, Mr. Benjamin believes, a sinlple apparatus could be devised so compact that it would occupy no more space than an ordinary travelling trunk, capable of dischanfing an electric spark potent enough "to kill simultaneously more men than have ever been hanged in oomnany in this eoantrr," with entire safety to the operating Sheriff. At the Stevens Institute, in Hoboken, N. Y., there is an electric coil which yields sparks twentv-one inches long that penetrate «ass blocks three inches thick, and tne Royal Polytechnic Institution, in London, possesses one of even greater potency. The awe-inspir ing influence of such a mysterious mode of capital punishment he considers one of its im portant recommendations, whereas hanging Srodoces on the public no emotions superior to isgust.

It is stated lhat in some of the fabrics but a fourth part of the substance is silk, three-fourths con sisting of chemicals and oils, and the compound is of so inflammable a character that vessels have been set on fire by their spontaneous com • bust ion during transportation. So great is the danger of fire from this kind of merchandise ; that the North German Lloyds Steamship Com pany has determined to refuse it as freight.

Supply them with coal aslies and sand for dusting baths. Give them green food of some kind daily. Give them sweet food—it matters less what kind than that they get a variety. This is the way to make "winter layers." ALL kinds of Stove and Flue pipe to be had at the Hardware Store of J. NIGGLE A 880. THE Riddles, of Pittsburgh, were sentenced by Judge Ewinglast Friday. George R., the old gentleman to pay a fine of 61 cents and be confined in the county jail for one month; James H., the son, to pay same fine and be confined four months in county jail. The Judge remarked that he did not believe that either of the defendants really intended to com mitt a fraud because they had promptly, and without reservation, delivered all of their property to the bank in order to make amends as far as possible for the done. In view of this fact he thought it unnecessary to impose a heavy fine. Go TO J. F. T. Stehle's for the latest styles of Hats. THERE will be to vote for on the Btate ticket, next year, one person for Auditor General in place of Schell, who was elected in 1877, and whose term will expire, and one for Supreme Judge, in place of Judge Woodward, deceased, whicn seat is occupied by Hon. Henry Green, of Northampton county, serving under the Governor's appointment. Besides the two State officers there will be a full list of members of the House of Representatives, 201 in all, and half the Senate, numbering twenty five members. All this, in addition to the President, a full delegation in Congress, and large county tickets, will make a lively contest in 1880. GRATE tile, flue rings and fire brick, at J. Niggle A Bro.'s THERE is trouble in the German Lutheran Church at Honesdale, I'a., owing to charges against the moral character of Rev. F. A. Hertiberger, who came from Ohio to be pastor of the church two vears ago. The ac cusation is that be is in tne habit of getting drunk. In fifteen years the church has had bod luck with five pastors. The first was dis- ' missed for being so drunk in the pulpit that he i had to be carried into the street. The second gave dissatisfaction because he draok in fash ionable resorts and not in humbler saloons. The third offended because he preached against drinking at all. The fourth—well, there was a married woman in that case. And now it is liquor again. WILLIAM ALAND, Merchant Tailor, hag just opened the largest line of woolens for men and boys wear ever offered in Butler. THE largest sale of stock ever made in this country was that made by Mr. William 11. Vanderbift, to a party of New York and London capitalists, last Thursday, of 150,000 shares of New York Central 11. R. Stock, at . $123 per share, which makes the sale add up to ' eighteen million and some hundred thousand 1 dollars. Jay Gould, is at the head of the buy- ] ing crowd, and by getting control of the roads i west of Chicago, and the network of small roads or feeders in Indiana and Illinois, known as the Wabash lines, tbey seem to have forced Vanderbilt to sell to them, as they could have thrown the trade of all those roads to the Penn sylvania Central or Baltimore A Ohio. This sale gives the Gould crowd control of a com- 1 plete trans —continental line. ALL kinds of Gloves, at J. F. T. STEHLE'S. WHEN a railroad company issues , a new time table it is a good thing to let all the employes, especially those who run the trains, know it, because it is liable to create confusion if some trains steer by one time table and some i by another. An illustration of the truth of this remark occurred on a Connecticut road i lately. About a week before, it seems that the j officers of the road issued in a quite kind of way an entirely new schedule for the running i of trains. Some of the conductors apparently i got wind of this rather important fact and some did not, and the consequence was that some j trains were running on the old time and some I on the new, and thus it happened about 7 < o'clock last Monday that an old-timer freight and a new-timer express tried to pass on the same track while going at a high r.ate of speed. Singularly enongh nobody was killed, though . many were badly injured and a large amount ! of railroad property destroyed. It is probable, however, that the accident will cause the news ' of the change of time to spread among the rest 1 of the employes, and this will greatly tend to ' promote the comfort of passengers. SHAFTS, finished and rough, at the J. Niggle A Bro.'s Hardware Store, Jefferson , street, Butler, Pa. PETER GOELET died lately. Peter 1 was worth all the way from $12,000,000 to S2O.- I 000,000 —we would be satisfied ourselves with 1 the lower estimate. He thought a great deal 1 of his money ; so much that he never spent a ' cent when he could save it. We couldn't begin to tell how much real estate in New York 1 belonged to him ; it was a principle of his life never to sell an inch of land once in the pos session of the Goelet family. He lived alone In a house on Broadway, New York, just above 1 Madison Square. The dwelling stoiid apart in a large yard in the midst of stores and business houses, and the Broadway passers used to stop to peep through the irou railing at Peter Goelets companions. These were pheasants from India, storks from Egypt, Guiuea fowls and rare birds from all over the world. A mag nificent milch cow contentedly chewed her cud and reigned over the enclosure. In winter the cow was housed In a barn back of the house, and the birds were safely sheltered in the upper chambers of the house and fed from the hand of Peter Goelet, late millionaire poultry fancier, now gathered to his fathers. N. B.—When a man Is gathered to his fathers, bis money is gathered to others. SILK Handkerchiefs, cheap, at J. F. T. STKHLE'H. delect Your Seat*.

Commissioner Donaldson was called to the i Chair. Commissioner Gribben stated that the present mode of assessing was bad and was getting worse. He said that Assessors in assessing property often added the full value of new improvements, and that, while the land itself was down to a basis of $lO per acre. For in stance, if A and B each owned 100 acres of unimproved land and paid tax on a valuation of $lO per acre, the total valuation would be SI,<XN) each, and a ten mill tax would amount to $lO, but if B improves his land, and the As sessor thinks the improvement adds $5 per acre to the value of it, he adds $5 per acre to the assessed value of $lO per acre, and assesses it at sls per acre, and the result is that B pays one-half more tax than A. This is undoubtedly unjust. Suppose that A's land was assessed at its full value of SSO per acre, and B's at its full value of $55 per acre, reduce the tax to two mills, and A's tax will amount to $lO and B's to sll, which is just. Mr. Gribben then read a paper which showed the amount of bonds, mortgages, notes and money now on interest in this county, as as- Brady township, S7OO : Buffalo, S7OO ; Butler township, $200; Centre $450; Cherry $1,740; Connoquenessing, $2o0; Clinton, $700; For ward $1,150; Franklin, $300; Fairview, ss,ooo; Jefferson, $5,100 ; Middlesex, $250 ; Oakland, $1,475; Penn, $1,989; Parker, $10,500; Slip peryrock, $1,400 ; Summit, S3OO ; Washington, *300; Winfield, $1,900; Worth, ss<)o; Ilarris ville, $4,500, and all the other townships and boroughs in the county, nothing. He thought it strange that the Assessors could not find more money, and referred them to the Register's and Prothonotary's offices, where they could find records of much more. He could not understand why we have so many debtors and so few creditors. But creditors could complain, and justly, that they should nst pay eight mills on their money, with real estate assessed at one-fifth its real value. For instance, A and B own 100 acres each, worth $5,000, assessed at SI,OOO. At eight mills, each pays $8 tax, but if B sells his 100 acres and gets his $5,000 in money or mortgages, he would, at eight mills, be compelled to pay S4O tax. This would be unjust, and is another argument in favor of assessing real estate at its full value. If this is done, those who now have money and conceal the fact will have no excuse for so doing, and no injustice will be done those who cannot or do not conceal the fact of their having it. Messrs. Dawson Wadsworth, Josiah Thomp son, R. M. Harbison and others, also spoke in favor of assessing at full value. All the Assessors of the county, with the exception of about eight, were present. Sperber, of 90 and 92 Federal street, Allegheny City, is considered the leading Photo grapher this side of New York. Here Is a Chance to Learn Some thing. We have sent for and have on hands 500 copies of the famous SIOO Prize Essay on the "Cultivation of the Po tato," by D. H. Crompton, of Wayne county, Pa. The prize was offered by a gentleman at present a citizen of Butler, several years ago, and was competed for by twenty persons. A committee of three thorough agricul turists awarded the prize to Mr. C., whose essay, with that of the cele brated French cook, Pierre Blot, on "How to Cook the Potato," and a few pages containing illustrations and de scriptions of the different varieties of potatoes, have been printed and put into book form. Thebookcontains forty pages and is handsomely illustrated throughout, the copyright alone of one of the pages containing cuts of all the insects which are enemies of the potato, costing the publishers fifteen dollars.

Myriads of so-called "specifies" anil "cures" for Rheumatism have already been brought before the public, and many of them have been endorsed by the ceitificates of respectable and promite citizens, who have derived benefit from such preparations. There is no doubt that a great many of these "Liniments," "Oils," etc.. so widely advertised and freely recommended for Rheumatism and painful complaints of a similar nature, have genuine merit and will relieve certain type* of tlie complaints named ; but when Rheumatism, Neuralgia, and kind- diseases have become chronic and threaten serious results, you may rest assured that they will help but very little. Although not rec ommended as "infallible," the peculiar quali ties of ST. JACOBS OIL especially adapt it to those cases which may be termed "chronic" and which have previously withstood all known "specifies" m well as the prescriptions of the best physicians. We would mention, an an example, the case of Mr. A. Heilman, Kditor of the Pittsburgh Republican, who suffered with Rheumatism for two years. After vainly using all the rec ommended remedies and exhausting the skill of the most experienced physicians without even tempory relief, it required only two bot tles of ST. JAC< MM OIL to effect a permanent cure. Mr. C. Hanoi, a well-knowu citizen of Youngstown, Ohio, secured for his wife, who for twelve years had been a constant sufferer from Neuralgia in the head, the services of the ablest physicians in the land, but they were unable to do anything for her ; half a bottle of ST. JACOBS OIL cured her. Mr. Wm. Rein hart, Elmore, Wis., report ithe case of a neigh bor who for twenty-four years had suffered so terribly with Hhcumrlism that, at times, he could hardly move around; a few bottles of ST. JACOBS OIL cured him. "To cap the cli max," however, Mr. A. Neiger. of Taylorville, Pa., writes that his mother who had been a continual sufferer with Klieumatism for the past thirty years, used one bottle of ST. JA COHH OIL and was immediately relieved of all pain. These are results which truly deserve to lie brought to public notice ; but they are not exceptions, as will lie seen by the numer ous other certificates from all parts of the United States. It should be the duty of every one to call the attention of his suffering friends and neighbors to this wonderfully efficacious preparation, especially as the low price of 50 cents a bottle places it within-the reach of all persons, rich and poor.
