The Governor of Cuba has discovered a number of false certificates, by which 170 negroes, who ought to be free, are held in bondage. An investigation has been ordered.

So rapidly are the new railroads being built across the continent that in a short time there will not be less than five sepa rate roads to the Pacific coast. Let us hope that they will not all be controlled by one company, or else we wont be much better oil' than we are now. To the old rood, the Union Pacific, will be added the Northern Pacific, the Central Pacific, the Atlantic and Pacific, and the Texas and Southern Pacific, the latter be -g r'-eady f dsl; J.

The bride will give her first r ept'ou in the new house, and Mrs. V" lit will also give three reception o I her account. The fact that this Christmas 101 l 011 Sand ay gives occasion to exercise one self in some curious calculations . Some one who has a taste for such matters pre sents the following statements that are not generally known: The falling of Chr'stmas 011 Sunday takes place four t'mes in every 28-years, after the expira tion of every 5, 0, 11 and 5 years respect ively. Take, for instance, the year 1859 as a starting point. In that year Christ mas came 011 Sunday. The succeeding twenty-eight years during which Christ mas has and will come upon Sunday are 1864,'70,'81 and 'B7. Since we last celebrat ed a Christmas Sabbath before the pres ent 11 years have elapsed. In six years we will have another, and there will not again be an eleven year skip until that between 1910 and 1921. Owing to 1900 not being an actual leap year, though divisible by the figure 4, from 1802 to 1910 Christmas (and, of course, New Year also) falls on Sunday regularly ev ery six years. This calculation ma';es an iteresting centre-table amusement. A statement of the anthracite coal trade shows the production for the year to be about twenty-eight million and live hun dred thousand tons. There may be a week's suspension in January, but after that, it is thought, that the demand will be such ;is to make work imperative. Thirty million tons is calculated as the production of ISB2, and with this view preparations are being actively pursued in all the anthrrcite regions. There are now three hundred and lift}' prominent Irishmen in jail, but the tale of agrarian outrages in Ireland does not de crease, although there are now fifty thou sand armed men in the country. Game must be scarce in the vicinity of Towanda. A celebrated landlord and a vigi lant police officer went out hunting one day last week. After traveling all day, without success, so some of the knowing friends of the parties say, they went into a farmer's pigeon-roost and knocked down a half dozen of the birds with a club and departed for home. Go to the filwell House, or ask DIM MOCK, if you want to get further information on the subject. Ilere the brave hunters hive away of going to one of the meat markets and buying game to take home with them when they fail to bag any. They dont pro pose to run any chances with indignant far mers since the time the boys shot that pea cock for a wild turkey.— Athens Gaz.
