another fit. Tiiis tune it was oc
casioned by our article showing him
up in the matter of the corner stone
for the new Reformed Church at
Dushore. His ranting about the
REPUBLICAN gives us no concerne,
but we think it was hardly decent
for him to throw mud at his honor
able competitor for the oflice of
Representative and to accuse him
of being a heeler and boodler.
Such attacks will do you more harm
than good, Georgle, for every one
knows that Mr. Farrell is an honest,
intelligent and decent man,

Centralia, Columbia county, is a
town without a tax collector. Both
the Town Council aiul the School
Board have combined their efforts
to secure a collector, but no one
wants tjje job. The lawful com
pensation is 110 inducement, and it
is believed that 10 per cent, will
have to be allowed before a collector
can be obtained. In the mean time
the borough treasury is depleted
and the oflicials are in a quandry.
This is quite different from the
situation in Sullivan county. Our
people resort to law for the collector

Streby, of Grand mother—the (itt::-
zcttc, appears to think that all the
Democratic leaders in the county
are heelers and boodlers. This is
pretty hard on Karns, Walsh, Smith,
Flynn, Murray, Gallagher, Phillips,
Tonkin, Parrel 1, Speaker, Wright,
Caseman and a number of other
gentlemen, who have always been
considered by the people of the
county to be good men and trun.
If Grandmother is to lie relied upon
the only good men in the Demo
cratic party are, Streby, himself
and the man who writes his editorials.
Mr. Chas. Stewart of Clearfield,
who spent several weeks with his
son, D. M. Stewart of the Laporte

publishes his well gotten up story,
wherein be relates a big kill—two
