Hornblower, Professor of Theology and Homiletics of the Western Theo logical Seminary of the Presbyterian Church, died on Tuesday evening of last week, at his residence in Allegheny City. He was 63 years old and held many high positions in the Church. Two months ago he was striken with paralysis while preaching. —All watches over the value of S2O are taxed 50c. 75c. or $1 per year, according to value, and according to the Annual Statement there are none such in Butler, ClintoD, Clay, Centre, Clearfield, Franklin, Lancaster, Marion, Mercer, Washington and Worth town ships, nor in Saxonburg borough. The owner of a watch pats his own value on it. —An important question is now before the Franklin county court for decision. Some years ago viewers were appointed to view a site for a bridge over one of the county streams. They reported in favor of the bridge and the grand jury concurred, but the county commis sioners refused to build it. The parties inter ested in its construction have petitioned the court to issue a mandamus to compel the com missioners to do the work. —Mark Twain's latest book is entitled "Life on the Mississippi." The book reviewer of the New York Tribune thinks that his sketches are highly over-drawn and, as for repetition, compares Mark to the penitent in the old Irish song, who said: "I went to confess me to Father O'Flannigan, Tould him me tale, made an end, and began agin." The Tribune man does nothing but ridicule the work, and yet we notice that an agent for it in a neighboring county embodies part of this review in his advertisment of the book. —A number of the merchants of Oil City were taken in and done for by an advertising man of Sells Brothers'circus. He told them he had a contract with the Derrick for print ing 30,000 programmes to be distributed on circus day. He was a moral cuss and would not advertise soloons or hotels, and the mer chants who gave their orders paid their money in advance. When circus day come around neither the programmes nor man were to be seen. Hereafter those merchants will advertise in newspapers. —A mathematical gentleman of Franklin, Pa., calls attention to the alarming waste that has been going on for ages in the matter of fin' ger-nails and toe-nails, and gives the following figures: A person's nails grow by actual meas urement k of an inch a week, or 61 inches per annum. The twenty nails of the hands and feet thus yield a yearly growth of 130 inches, or about 11 feet, weighing iof a pound. In a population of 90,000,000 (which our country is likely to have by the time the suggestions herein are utilized) this would be 30,000,000 pounds per year. In three generations this would give us 3,000,000,000 pounds or 1,500- 000 tons. Now, one ton of this firm, tough, translucent material will pave a mile of street with an elastic, indestructible pavement 3 inches deep and 30 feet wide. Thus there is going to waste in the United States alone 6,000 miles of unsurpassed paving material, enough to pave every city not already paved, calculating the cities at 1,000 in number, with six miles of pavement for each. Let the read er pause and consider these tremendous figures, as he scratches his scalp with his precious fin ger nails. —Our Jim says—that the number of men in politics to whom home and hell are synonymous terms is truly remarkable, and that, therefore, politics must be the natural refuge of the un happy benedict. —The strike of the telegraph opeartors of the country did not take place until Thirsday noon of last week, when some 8,000 operators left their instruments. At twenty minutes to noon, by local time, or noon of Washington time of that day, the operator here quit worki and the members of the Oil Exchange left their room, as no further market quotations were to be had. The managers of the different companies at the principal business centers are making every effort to secure operators to take the places of the strikers, and whether or no the strike will be a success, and the compa nies accede to the demands of the strikers or compromise with them remains to be seen. —Esq. John Smith, of Cherry township, was discharged from jail last Saturday as per order of Supreme Court, upon giving bail in $5,000. Messrs. Wm. G. Smith, Charles Stew art, George Book, Matthew McGregor and Silas Christy went his surety. On Monday of last week, Messrs. Reed and Sullivan, two of Mr. Smith's attorneys, presented his applica tion for a special allocator to Judge Trunkey, at Franklin, who took their papers and pre sented them to the members of the Supreme Court at their meeting at Bedford on Thursday > when the writ was allowed to issue and the bail fixed at $5,000. No time has been fixed for the hearing of the case, but it will proba bly be heard at the next term for this county. —They had a new kind of strike in New York last Monday. The proprietors of several of the largest cigar factories in the city locked their doors and over ten thousand persons, more than all the telegraph strikers in the country, are out of employment. In the city there are two cigarmakers' unions—the Inter national Union and the Progressive Union. The leaders of these two bodies had long bean at war, and a few days ago, on accouut of a trifling dispute in one factory, the Progressive Union men had arbitrarily demanded that the International Union men should be discharged. This the firm refused. The Progressive Union men would not return to work until the Inter national Union men were dischanged. The Union Cigar Manfacturers' Association then declared that unless the Progressive Union men returned by Wednesday they would begin a lockout, which they did. —Last Thursday morning a son of Geo. Boll man, a farmer living between the Butler plank road and Pine creek, in Shaler township, Alle gheny county, noticed a man sitting with his back against a rye stack in one of his father's fields. Thinking it was a drunken man sleep ing off his intoxication Bollman paid no fur ther attention to the matter. At noon the man had not changed his position, and Mr- Ballman went out to investigate. He found the man dead, with a bullet hole in his right temple. In his right hand he clutched a re volver with one chamber discharged. Coroner Dressier was notified and held an investiga tion. The body was identified as that of B- Kline. The position of the deceased and the character of the wound pointed to deliberate suicide, and there being no testimony to con tradict this theory, a verdict of death by sui cide was brought in by the jury. Kline was formerly a liquor dealer in the Pittsburgh Diamond, but of late has been traveling through the country buying hides and tallow. —The Grand Recorder of the A. O. U. W., for this State has favored us with a copy of hi* report for the year ending May 31st last, from which we take the following notes. The Gen eral Fund receipts for the year amounted to $7,035.23; and the Beneficiary Collections to $140,675. The Beneficiary disbursments amounted to $132,026, of which sum the heirs of Samuel R.

Krouse, Clipper Lodge, Petrolia, $2,000. The beneficiary to the heirs of John McClure, of the Resolute Lodge, of Prospect, has not yet been paid. The order has lodges in this county at Petrolia, Prospect, Butler, Karns City, Baldwin, or Fairview, Slippery rock or Centreville, Bruin or Martinsburg, Byrom Centre or Sandy Point, and Evans City. The Late Storm in Butler County A correspondent of the Gazette, writing from Freeport, last Wednesday, says: The storm of last week was much more destructive in Butler county than has been reported. Wind destroy ed timber by the acre and hail fell in large stones, covering the earth to the depth of sev eral inches, literally destroying all vegetation. The crops are totally ruined, large fields of corn are battered down and oat fields cannot be cut. Much wheat and rye damaged by the storm will not be cut, and the farmers are plowing their fields in order to plant them in buckwheat. Many fruit trees are divested of their leaves and fruit, while in some instances the bark was knocked loose from the branches. The farmers reporting the heaviest loss live in Clinton township. Among the heaviest losers are J. S. Love, John Norris, J. 11. Love and J. Cunningham. Their crops are totally destroyed and great damage to their timber and houses and fences down. At Pughtown, Absalom Monks, John Jack and Arch Montgomery's losses are very heavy. George M&zeland reports his loss at SI,OOO. The hail broke fifty panes of glass out of his residence and stripped his trees of all their fruit, and literally destroyed all his crops and garden. Ab. Monks' residence and J. 11. Lune's had no gtass left in them on the north west side. Down at Wm. Woods' the heavy gale passed through his large timber, mowing a swath through it as a reaper through a grain field. Fifty-eight were twisted off and uproot ed and lay neaped up in its track. Southeastwardlv toward Larden Mills the farms of Philip Snyder, 'Squire Harvey and several others were badly damaged. Mr. Harvey said the stock in the fields were pelted and beaten with the large hail till they ran wild. They could not find shelter anywhere, and some smaller stock were killed. Passing through by Emory Chapel the storm visited the section of country owned by the Ekascs, doing the same damage there, and Alf Ekas had a large number of poultry killed by hail. The width of the storm was over a mile and has destroyed nearly everything in its course for several miles in length. The hail was so thick and in such a large quantity that much of it could be found and gathered two and a-half days after its falling. To Township Auditors. According to the act of Assembly of 1874, township and borough auditors are required to file a copy of the report with the Clerk of Courts or be subject to a fine of twenty dollars for neglect of the same. —The music Ilall at the Pine Crove Normal Academy will be completed Aug.

KETLER, Principal, Grove City, Pa. —The old veterans of Mercer county met in convention at Mercer last week and organized the "Mercer County Veterans' Association," elected officers and adopted a constitution and by-laws.

The jury returned a verdict of guilty, but the court set it aside, claiming that in the absence of important witnesses there was insufficient evidence to con vict. The case will be tried again. —A party of lightning-rod men are now on their travels. Farmers and others must lookout for such scoundrels. We see it stated that within the last two weeks, in the vicinity of Wavnes burg, Greene county, farmers have been swindled out of about SI,OOO. The swindlers got the farmers to sign peculiar contracts which were alleged to be but for a few dollars, but on closer examination were found to range from $l5O to SSOO. The swindlers drove flashy turnouts. —Oscar Richey, of Plum township, Venango county, is wanted. He met Miss Emma Burns as she was passing along the highway leading to the resi dence of Mr. Grove, where the young lady resides, last Wednesday, and it being dark she accepted his offer to escort her home. After going a short distance, he made an indecent proposal which Miss Burns indignantly rejected. He then threw her down, but she suc ceeded in regaining her feet and es caped to her home, when she fainted and before she became conscious or could explain what had happened, Richey escaped and is still at large. Miss Burns was not seriously injured, but her clothes were torn into rags. Several years ago this samo Oscar Richey committed a crime for which he was compelled to go west to escape punishment, and while there married a young lady whom he deserted after one child had been born to them. He is a son of 'Squire Richey, of Sunville, and is considered a worthless character. Had he been caught on Wednesday last he would have been roughly bandied by the people of the communi ty. Officers are looking for him. —While traveling in New York late ly E. K. Sackett, an attorney of the Erie bar, was accosted by two stran gers who requested him to surrender without any fuss or have his brains blown out. They proved to be detec tives in search of a Californa bank de faulter. Thinking he was being guy ed the lawyer punched one head and was going for the other when he was overpowered and strongly manacled. The detectives compared his anatomy with their description list and marched him off to the station. On the way he gave his name and address, but it elicited only winks from his captors. He pursuaded them to call at Dun's Mercantile Agency, of which he is at torney, at Union City. The clerk knew that a lawyer Sackett was at torney there, but he did not know him personally. Sackett was incarcerated and it was several hours before the mistake was discovered. —lt is said that Hattie Hutchinson, of Rockdale township, has long been woed by George Glover, of Bloom field, Crawford county. Finally he pursuad ed her to go on an excursion with him to Cleveland, Ohio, and arriving at the Forest City, he neatly popped the question. She refused him, whereup on he drew a revolver, threatening to kill both her and himself, and she yield ed. The gordian knot was tied and the couple returned home the same day. The bride went immediately to her father's house and explained the cape, and now seeks for a divorce. Linen Ulsters and suits at less than you can make them, at RITTER & RALSTON'S. We Have still a few of those fine Lawns, 5 cents per yard, 20 yards for one dollar, at RITTER & RALSTON'S. —An error has been made in stating that the full month of December has been taken off the deer season. Such a bill passed the House, but the Senate added fifteen days more, making the season extend to the 15th of December. This is not as good as the House bill, but is better than no change There ought to be a law restricting the killing of deer to every other year. This would be a means of saving the lives cf both deer and men, for of late years the hunters have become so thick io the hunting grounds that their trusty rifles have been thinning out their own ranks. Trade Dollars. The scheme of depreciating the Val ue of Trade Dollars to 85 cents is a money making one, and the loss will naturally fall on the working men.— The Trade Dollar is worth more in trinsically than the Bland Dollar and issued by the same authority; the gov ernment must certainly redeem them ; believing that it will, we take them at par.

Mr. Key took this step under the administration of. President Hayes, but the operation of his order was suspended because the lottery undertook to test the legal ques tion. But instead of pressing the mat ter to an issue it courted delay as the best way to s cure immunity. The De partment now retraces a false step by compelling the lottery to ascertain its rights under the law. We shall be very much disappointed if the courts set aside Mr. Gresham's decision. Up on principles of common law and of public policy, the lottery has no rights in the matter. That any State of the Union should continue a legal sanction to an institu tion constructed to promote gambling, and should be willing to share in its shameful profits, is sufficiently humili ating. But Louisiana is within her rights in so doing, so long as she con fines the mischief to her own people. By the use of the national mails the lottery draws its spoils from every quarter of the country, and the State levies revenue upon the fools of every Commonwealth in the Union. The time has come to draw the cordon san itaire around Louisiana in this matter, for the sake of the colored people of the adjacent States, if for no other reason. They are especially victims to the temptation which this legalized iniqui ty spreads before the unwary. A CARD.
