Butler county has a remarkable case of incendiarism on bands. On Friday night of last week some one. yet unknown, placed "waste" saturated with oil at the front and back doors of the residenoe of Mr. Henry Morrison, on tbe John Dufford farm, near Peteraville, and set it on fire. It happened tbat Mrs. Morrison was suf fering from neuralgia that night, and both she and her husband were awake during the night, and they beard the crackling of the flames before they bad made much headway. Mr. Morrison went down to his back door and found the weather-boarding by it horning, and with a buoket or two of water extinguished that fire; then he went to the front door and did the same there; and had hardly finished that till he noticed tbat his barn was in flames; and it, with all his crops which had just been harvest ed, bis farming implements, etc., were horned. His stock, fortunately, was in the fields. Mr. Morrison moved to the Dufford farm from HamsviUe, some time ago. He is about 50 years of age, has grown op child ren at home, and has no idea as to who could bear bim such great malice. Oil Notes. The Kennedy k Co. well on the Eicholu is yet doing 75 barrels. Forst k Co. have leased 1000 acres in Worth twp. and will drill a test well on the Frank Elliott farm, near the old factog ry, on Black Ron. Miller A Sayler are preparing to drill on tbe Armstrong lease in Penn twp. A company composed of Gas Greisbacb, Eli May, H. C. Boggs, A. L. Boggs and others are drilling on the Mrs. M. J. Boggs farm,*on the hill sooth of Evans City. The Lenta A Schlagel well on the Gar- Tin is yet doing close to 500 barrels a day, and the MoCalmont on the Slafles 60. Clarks No. 17 on the Rader is doing 100 barrel* a day. The Robb No. lon the Bryan, Muddy - ereek field, is good for 15 barrels, and the Mattson 3 on the Hockenbery is doing 4. Fraiier & Myer's well on the Tillie Lo gan farm ia showing for a 50 barrel well. Tbe McDonald field is the only one re ceiving much attention lrom the oil men at present. Nearly 300 wells have been drilled in that vicinity in the past five months, at a cost of nearly $2,000,000, and the total product of the whole field is about 8000 barrels a day. To the Farmers in Particular and the Public in General. I a addition to oar first-class roller wheat flour mill, which we bnilt last spring, and which has proven a suc cess, we have just added the latest improved machinery for making buckwheat and rye flour. This machinery can not be excelled. We will be able to make yon as good a quality of buckwheat flour and as good a yield as can be made in the country. We hare a complete mill, which will prove itself? First, a first-class wheat roller flour mill, which makes as good a quality of flour as is shipped from the West or elsewhere. Second, the beat buckwheat flour mill in the State. Third, a rye flour mill that makes as good flour as is in the market. Fourth, corn meal and chopping mills tbat do complete work. We also manufacture Graham flour of tbe beat quality. Therefore we say without fear of contradiction tbat we have tbe best mill for accom modating the farmer and public in general tbat there is in Butler county. We make a specialty of grinding yonr Erain at once, so tbat you take it ome with you and save an extra trip. It will pay to boy your flour at our mill, as we make a strictly No. 1 grade of floor snd sell it at as low figures as it can be bought anywhere. Gkobgb Walter —File horse picture—Tbat in this paper.

The cry is still "They come." Let them come, and be charmed with Butler at her best, in gala attire and fascinating guise. —The Xiagara excursion of last Thurs day was altogether too popular. The Rupert Bros, had arranged for a larger number than they thought would go and double what the railroadmen expected, but tbe crowds at the stations were so large that they stopped tbe sale of tickets at 8 o'clock, and refunded the money of those they could induce to stay at home; but stil 1 the long train of eighteen cars was so crowded as to be uncomfortable, and so heavy as to cause delays, facts that the managers of the excursion deeply regret. Our Fair. The Fourteenth Annual Exhibition of the Butler Co. Agricultural Association will be held ou their grounds at Butler, on Sept. 8, 9, 10, aud 11, 1891. Many new features have been added to the Premium List, this year, the most important of which is that the premiums offered are largely increased and are now fully double the amount offered by the surrounding as sociations, for horses and cattle: aud be sides this a premium is offered for the best herd of cattle, of cattle, of either Short horn, Holstein or Jerseys, so that all class es of stock raisers will have an opportunity to show their stock and compete for a good premium. Special offers in the fruit and vegetable departments ought to induce strong competion, while the poultry fan cier will also be rewarded with a handsome premium if he examines the list iu tbat de partment and conies up to the require ments. Altogether the list is so re arrang ed as to be interesting to all classes. As the Butler Fair is one of the largest held in the state let nur people interest them selves in keeping up its good record by bringing articles of merit for exhibition. The management are busy putting every thing in shape on tbe grounds—and have already built a large block of stalls aud will have the grounds as neat and trim as time and money will make them.

For fully two hours of last Tuesday night the Council of Butler, with the aid of Mr. Porter, of the firm of Smith. Porter it Co.. fire-brick manufacturers of New Cumber land. W. Va., talked about brick—fire brick—the quality of the clay, manner of burning, vitrification, experience of dif ferent places with different makes, the different tests and particularly the efficacy of the water test. Engineer McQuistion slated that he had tested several of the brick that Long A Doyle are putting down on E. Jefferson St. and that one brick absorbed 11 ounces of water in 18 minutes, another was full of water in a few minutes, another had ab sorbed 8 ounces in lj hours, another 4 or in same time, all had averaged 4 ounces in hours, and some showed water to the the centre; also that it was the experience of the Engineer's Association, and so pub lished, that fire brick that would absorb water would, when laid on the street, be split by the frost aud would crumble. He cited several cases of brick being tested and condemned by the water test, and among them that of Omaha which con demned brick that absorbed 3-10 of an oz. in 3fi hours, and stated that he had ordered Long 4 Doyle to discontinue the laying ot the brick. Mr. Porter denied the efficacy or fairness of the water test, said they were shipping brick all over the country and had received no complaints, that their brick were made of pure fire clay and were properly bnrned; that they are shipping the same brick to Philadelphia. Wheeling and other points that thej- are shipping here: thoueh he ac knowledged that the brick on Stockton ave. Allegheny, which crumbled, were from their kilns, and gave certain reasons for said crumbling. Messrs Long A Doyle thought that this water test should have been sprung on them when the first car load came in: but Mr. Forquer said that the first car load of these brick shipped here were good ones and had been tested: also that we were now receiving tbo refuse of the kilns, and that life was tjo short to trifle with this matter, and that the committee had taken it for granted that things were going right until they found they were mistaken. Mr. McJunkin suggested a compromise i.e. culling the brick on hands, aud insist ing on better ones to complete that street and the other streets. The contract makes tbe Engineer and Street Paving Committee tbe absolute judges of the quality of tbe materials that go into the streets, and the matter was re ferred to them and next morning they and the contractors and Mr. l'orter went over the street and examined the brick, and the contractors and Mr. Porter entered into a bond to the borough in $5,000, security lor any damage doneto the street by water and frost for six years. It was stated that tbe Main street as sessment would not be ready till the next meeting.^ A slight change is to be made in the grade of West Jefferson St. at crossing of Washington, and perhaps also in front of Mr. Forsythe's property. The Sec'y was ordered to notify the peo ple on the alley back of Duffy's store to abate certain nuisances. The grading of Wayne St. aud of Mc- Kean from Jefferson to Cunningham was let to Jno. 11. McKean at 25 cents a square yd; and McKean from Diamond St. to Wayne to J. B. Mathers at 30 cents, they to haul tbe dirt to the bridge fill, and to give bond and go ahead immediately or else contracts go to next best bidders. Mr. Hughes was voted $2,400 on his con tract for S. S. sewer; and Jos. Bredin.Esq. notified council of suit for damages for other big sewer passing through his prop erty. The Sewer Com. was instructed to settle with Messrs. Fullerton and Dauben speck, or else file bonds. The grade of S. Main St. next to tbe bridge, was referred to the Street Paving Com. with power to act. The fuss there seemed to be the result of a misunder standing. Council adjourned till next Tuesday ev ening. Accidents. Joseph Spohn went to work on the Plate Glass Works on Monday of last week, aud was cut by falling glass Friday. Julius Light, one of Richey's bakers, lit an oven full of gas, Thursday, aud was badly burned by the explosion. While working in Hughes' machine shop, S. S., last week, Frank Emery was struck in the face by a glancing sledge-hammer. The result was a broken nose. The Markets. BUILKU MARKETS.

An Ohio conple applied to Register Connor for a marriage license, and were refused, be cause the woman who had been divorced from her former husband, did not and could not show her papers, and the reason she could not show them was that, though the Court had granted her a decree, she had never paid the costs, and secured a copy of it. She plead with the Register, and "wet her pretty lashes with copious tears," as the Pittsburg paper states, but was advised to go ou to New Jersey. Quite a number of divorces have been granted to parties in this caunty who will, or onght to. tind themselves in the same predicament some day. They have an attorney draw up and present their petition, the necessary publication made, and the proper entries made on the dockets; and then snap their fingers at every body who has done anything (or them, and it would not be a bad idea for our Courts to take notico of this fact— which can easily be substantiated by a glance over the A. I). dockets, and make the decrees absolute, and to be entered as such upon payment of costs, and not other wise. The will of C. Smith of Butler was pro bated, and letters to John C.
