Letter to John Younkins. Butler. Pa. Dear Sir: Here's what "wears longer' means. D. T. McGown, Cooperstown, N. Y. built a house in 'BS and painted Devoe. The paint lasted ten years. A year or two later, a neighbor built a house and painted it with lead and oil. The neighbor's house was repaint ed twice in the same time. This looks as if the neighbors house was painted three times in eight or nine years, and McGowns once in ten years. We are not quite sure—we tell the tale as it comes to ns. It is enough to say that Devoe Lead and zinc lasts twice as long as long lead and oil alone The reason is: white lead is soft and c halks off: zinc is hard and when thoroughly ground into the lea'l prevents, its chalking and makes it more durable. Yours truly, F. W. DEVOE & Co., 14 New York. P. S. Patterson Bros, sell our paint. A needed Dollar Is the most needed thing in the world.

One of the most interesting cases be fore local Courts for some time was the ejectment suit of Victor B. Walker vs John Bergbigler, in which Judge Thomas, Tuesday, ordered the jury to render a verdict for the deft. In 1878 Samuel S Crawford owned two lots on Third St. Butler. Crawford became insolvent and assigned to J. V. Ritts for the benefit of creditors The taxes on the two lots for that year were never paid, although demand was made on Crawford, and the lots were sold at Treasurer's sale to the County Com missioners. In 1902 the Commissioners sold them to Victor Walker at Com missioners' sale for sl. In the meantime Ritts. as assignee sold the lots and they changed owners several times until Rev. J. W. Davis bought ony of them, borrowed SI2OO from Bergbigler and built a honse Davis failed in his payments and Berg bigler was forced to take the property at Sheriff's Sale to save himself. After obtaining a deed from the Commission ers, Walker began his action of eject uient. and proved a perfect title in the County according to all the require ments of law. but they sold the premises for #l, whereas the law requires that thev must not sell for less than the amount of the for which they were forced to take the property. On this one point their sale was declared invalid and the verdict given for the defendant, who is in possession. The question now is. does the County or Bergbigler own the property, or. Berg bigler never having a legal title and the County Commissioners having given a deed for theirs, does no one own the land? PROPERTY TRANSFERS. J. W. Ralston to Wm.
