KETLEB, Pres. A Jail Delivery. Somebody passing the jail early la«t Friday morning saw a string of blanket hanging from the roof of the jail to the silewalk, and went into the Sheriffs house and informed the family of the fact, anil they, upon investigation, found that three prisoners—Frank Keiber, Charles Elmer and K. Groves—had escaped during the night. Men and telegrams were immediately sent out in all directions, and the County Commissioners offered a reward of S2OO for Reiber, but np to the time of our going to press nothing has been heard of the three men. It required considerable ingenuity a well a.s physical force for them to make an escape. The jail-room and cells are lined with iron, and the window, sky-light and doors covered by iron bars, but in the iron wall, just above the second-story ceil of the female department on the south ride, there is an iron door about two feet wide by three feet long, for the purpose of affording access to the roof when in need of repairs. This door is of quarter-inch wronght-iron, lined with half-in"h iron, and is well bolt ed and secured. There are no female prisoners in the jail at present, and the men have been allowed the use of that part.and they made a study of that door. They managed to loosen the pin of the lower of the three hinges, then they sharpened an old and hard chair-rung and found that it would do for an opening wedge; then they removed or quietly got ready for removal a piece of the oak floor ing of the jail-rooin C feet 4 inches long and 2 inches thick; and they hid enough blankets in one of the cells of the female department, which are very dark, to make a rope. Everything was ready Thursday night, the three men hid in the dark cell of the female department with their ptuff, and when all was quiet they went to work. Clinging to the iron bars of the cell they made a beginning with the chair-rung, and then used the piece of oak flooring to bend out the lower part of the door, and they ■worked so quietly that they gave no alarm whatever, though one of the Sheriffs family was up nearly all night with an aching tooth. When the hole was big enough they went through it. taking their blankets with them, then they cut a hole through the wood and tin roof with their pen-knives, made a rope of their blankets, slid down and were off. Bad Wreck on the P. R. R. For the first time in its history the block system of managing trains on the Pennsyl vania K. K. failed to protect a train follow ed by another, earl}' last Friday morning, and that was due to a dense fog. The accident happened in the G'oueuiaugh valley, near the station of New Florence, about 65 miles east of Pittsburg. One passenger train coming "»Vest and which had been delayed at Johnstown by a freight wreck, stopped at a water tank for water; the train following should have been stopped ut New Florence by a red light at the block house, but was not, either on account of a mistake made by the operator or by the fog confusing the engineer, and the train rushed on and crashed into the one standing at the Water Tank. The engine of the second train cut clear through the last car. a sleeper, of the first train, which contained twenty persons, two of whom were killed outright, and all the others injured. The sleeper was converted into kindling wood, and the survivors tell remarkable stories of their escapes. Four newly wedded people were ou the car, three of whom were seriously injured. A Strange Death. J. T. McConnell, a tool dresser, formerly of near Ilarrisville.but who has lately been employed on the I'. W. i K. It. was dis covered struggling in the creek just above the "Freeport" bridge, late last Thursday evening. His cries for help were answered and he was helped out of the mud and water, but he was chilled through and bruised aud expired shortly after. He had been drinking and it is probable that he fell over the embankment, as one of his shoulders was dislocated. The Markets.

It was a mutual affair and the stock-holders are not individually liable. J. D. Bowers, a well known oil well con tractor of near Bakerstown, was arrested in Allegheny Thur-day night for disorder ly conduct, "and confined iu the lockup, where it became apparent that he was in sane.

Campbell £ Teuipleton, who, our readers will remember, have refitted the old Troutnian building and changed it into a furniture house on a city style. On entering, one is confronted with evidences of the "oak craze" in the rows of oaken chamber suits and sideboards, which al most completely fill the ground floor. There is any amount of chaste and elegant carving among the more ornate work and the 16th century style, which is much affected now, is conspicuous. A chamber set of three piece?, imported Knglish oak, attracts much attention anil is certainly handsome, beside being "so English, you know." It is valued at something less than two hundred dollars. A cabinet shown in the front window, of cherry with mahogany finish, and well supplied with bric-a-brac of finest china, is equally ad mired and is probably as fine a piece of furniture as is in the county. A half-dozen oak sideboards with carved tops, and a general appearance of the freshest and newest "old oak" you ever saw nest at tracted our attention. We were afraid to price them, but heard enough to convince us that anyone wanting a fine sideboard need not go a thousand miles from the place to get it cheap. Genuine English oak chamber sets come high but we *au do with out them, but we need sideboards and we are glad to see them so inexpensive. A group of fine folding beds passed, we reach ed the "parlor," which the proprietors have fitted up to show what is not im possible. We forgot to price anything,but it looked to be about four times as long and seven times as deep as our pocket book. AVe went to the second floor where are found the chairs, tables, tetes, sofas, etc., aud it would be no use for us to try to tell you anything about it, for you must see it for yourself. Messrs. Campbell & Templeton announce in our advertising columns this week their opening, which occurs on Friday and Saturday of next week, and we are sure that they want everybody to come aud look at things, no matter whether they expect to buy furni ture inside the next five years or not. —llusbT Who is W. M. Nickle? How many stores does he buy for? Is there any advantage in buying in such large quantities? Come and see?
