Last Saturday was the best busi*
ness day the merchants have had
this summer. A large number of
people were attracted to town by the
game of ball.
Last week we were shown quite a
natural curiosity* for this part of the
country, in the shape of a horny toad,
which was sent to Mr. Stine, of this
place, by his sou in Arizona.
Bno. McCreery, editor of the Buck*

every time.

A i.akge amount of timber is now

County Suit. Morgan has made

Co., publishers of the Wheeling Reg
ister, whereby' their Map of West

This is “a consumm*ition devoutly to
be wished,” and we hope that before
the end of the next school term this
Map will adorn the walls of school
house in the county. We believe it
will.
Arrangements have been made
with Supt. Butcher to give Monon

This Institute is intended to accom
modate all those teachers who failed
to attend the Institute in June, as
well as to begin the fall and winter
Institutes and Educational Meetings.
An examination will be held on the
Saturday following the Institute.
We understand that quite a num
ber of our cattlemen have been heavy
losers this year owing to the de
pressed state of the market. It is
6aid by those who know, that the
losses of the present season will more
than balance the heavy gains of last
year. A large number of cattle were
bought last fall at high rates, which
were to be delivered in August and
September, but owing to the slate ol
the cattle market, every such trans
action means loss to the buyer, while
but little is to be realized by those
who ship their own stock.
V
Death of Dr. Clare Holtfit.ld
—The many friends of Dr. Clark Ho
i !yfield were shocked to hear of his
| death, which occurred at his home
j in Fairmont, on the 27th. Dr. Holy
| field was a son of Mr. Robert Holy
| field, of near Easton, this couuty.
i He studied Dentistry with Dr. Morris,
afterward attending the Philadelphia
Dental College. He was a self made
man and had very man}' friends here
who will regret to learn of his untime
ly demise. The remains were brought
to his father’s residence on Saturday
last,from where they were interred in
the Pierpoiut buryingground on Sun
day morning. The bereaved wife
and babe have our heartfelt sympathy
in their sad bereavement.
Fou some time past, tve have no
ticed a growing tendency among the
young men and boys of our town, to
congregate uj>on the corners, at cer
tain times in the day, and pass the
time in relating experiences and “tell
ing jokes.” It is melancholy fact
that the proceedings of such meetings,
are not such as would interest mod
est hearers. But the abuse goes still
further, and reaches the utmost limit
of forbearance, when these individ
uals, either heedlessly or wilfully, in
dulge in remarks on passers:by, be
they ladies or gentlemen. This dis
agreeable practice, we think, has been
indulged in thoughtlessly, and only
needs mentioning, that it may be dis
continued. Morgautowu has no
young men that it wishes converted
into that most obnoxious of nuisauees
—the corner loafty.
AMTTfiN BY A OriUXK.-A Uc OTOII
brier Independent says: Mr. John
McDowell, who lives in second Creek
District, Monroe count}’, has a con
tract to build a schoolhouso in that
District. One day last week while
engaged on that work he felt some
thing sting the back of his neck.
He attempted to brush the insect or
whatever it was off, and went on with
his work. . Presnently lie felt the
sting again, and ag'aiu he tried to
brush it off. This was repeated some
three or four times when he finally
caught small, black spider, about the
size of a pea. He killed it and pro
ceeded with his work, but in about
half an hour afterwards he fell over
in a swoon. Dr. B. F. Irons was sum
moned, and found Mr. McDowell in
a critical condition. No swelling ac
companied' the bite, but the least
noise or vibration of the air caused
the most intense suffering. His life
was despaired of at first, but now he
is considered out of danger, but still
suffers considerably.
A Good Joke on kx-Phesident
VViLson.—Hon. Wm. L. Wilson, of
this Congressional District is reported
by the Cranberry Enterprise as tel
ling the following joke on himself:
While in Morgantown some time ago,
he began to discuss Congress with
an old residenter who stigmatized all
lawyers as rascals and scoundrels.
At this Congressman Wilson, who
is a lawyer, disagreed with him
mildly and the constituent began to
become suspicious and said: “Maybe
you’re a lawyer?”
“Yes,” replied the Congressman.
“I am; but I am not practicing just
now.”
“Oh, well,” said the other; “of
course I don’t mean to say that ail
lawyers are rascals and scoundrels—
its only them us holds office that’s
rascals.”
Whether or not he heard Mr. Wil
son blush has not transpired, but he
soon left and meeting an acquaint
ance asked him who that was to whom
he had been talking.
“Why, that’s Congressman Wil
son,” said the mutual friend. “Well,
I’ll swear,” mused the constituent,
“Who’d a thought that that inno
cent looking little cuss was a con
gressman.
A Bio Damage Suit—The Hers
Case.—Steen roil Hess, by his attor
neys, Sturgiss, Cox and Haymond,
lias entered sait against Messrs Dil
worth & Co., of Pittsburg, A. E. La
zier A Co., Philip II. Keek and Jno.
J. Brown, for $10,000 damages, which
damage he thinks he has sustained
by false imprisonment in the jail of
this county.
This suit has grown out of a rath
er complicated case, of which the par
ticulars are as follows: Hess owned
a timber team, but was in debt. His
creditors retained a judgment
against him, and a day was set to sell
the team. He was giren the use of
the team until the day of sale. In
the meantime it was rumored that
Hess had taken the team across the
line into Pennsylvania, and there sold
it, pocketing the cash, and the credit-1
ors becoming alarmed, had him sum
moned before the Commissioner in
Chancerj' to find whether or not lie
had the money said to have been ob
tained, fsr the team, in his possession.
He did not answer the first summons,
aud another summons, equivalent to
a rule, was given him. Still he did
not appear, when an attachment was
issued and he was brought in person,
and refusing to answer the Commiss
ioner,he was immediately imprisoned.
It appears from the letter of the law
that the prisoner had a day in which
to answer, but on the contrary, he.
was instantly imprisoned. He then
applied for and obtained a writofAaft
ens corpus, on which he was released.
Last Monday, being the day appoint
ed for the sale of the team, it appear
ed at the proper time and place and
was duly disposed of.
Immediately after the sale this suit
was brought against the' parties. A
variety of opinions are expressed as
to whether or not it will materialize
to the advantage of the plaintiff.
Arc you troubled with such symp
toms of dyspepsia ns belching, tast
ing of the food, heart-burn, etc.?
Brown’s Iron Bittdrs will cure you.

Death From a Bee Sting.—Rev.
Janies Hayes, a worthy and respected
citizen of Manninglon district, resid
ing on Bartholomew's fork ®f Buffalo
creek, diet! last Suaday from erysipe
las superinduced by a bee sting. lie
was stung on the forehead, and noth
ing could be done to alleviate his suf
fering or avert the fate to which such
a trivial misfortune hastened him.
His sudden death is the cause of much
regret and sympathy in that commun
ity.—Index.

As we an non need to our readers
Inst week, Steen rod Hess, who was
imprisoned by the Commissioner in
Chancery, for refusing to answer
legal interrogatories, applied for and
obtained a writ of habeas corpus.
Judge Fleming gave a writ and ap
pointed Saturday to henr the cause
of the prisoner’s illegal detention.
Sturgiss. Cox and Ilaymond cou
dacted the defense, while Keck and
Hough represented the plaintiffs.
After hearing the arguments of coun
sel. the prisoner, owing to certain
legal technicalities was discharged.
This is the first writ of habeas corpus
that has been issued in Monongalia
county since the war, when it was
exercised several times by parents,
whose sons had enlisted nnder age,
to withdraw them from the army. It
is rumored that a suit for damages,
on account of illegal imprisonment
will shortly fallow.
The R. <fc Rs. Rattle the Wal
tons in Thuek Innings—Other Base
Ball Notes.—Last Saturday the Wal
ton Club, of Wayncsburg, came over
the Mason and Dixon line, full of the
determination to carry victory home
with them or die in the attempt.
They registered at the Commercial,
and the genial host J. K. Durr, did
all in his power to render them com
fortable. On Saturday afternoon n
large concourse assembled on the
Fair Ground to witness the game. A
little after 2 o'clock, the Walton
club having won the toss sent the R.
<fe Rs. to the bat. Nate Kiger grasped
the willow first and pounded the
leather for a two bagger, on which be
made third base, after which followed
hit after hit, until when the side was
retired, the li. & Rs. had nine runs
scored to their credit, thus litsrally
winning the game in the first inning.
The playing continued this way un
til the begining of the fourth inning
when, the catchers of the Waltons
having been severely injured, they
were allowed to draw the game, al
though they could not have done it,
excepting by the courtesy of the
home club.
Mr. K. Allum the first catcher of
the Walton’s had his first finger
broken at the first joint, while Mr.
James Rinehart, their second catcher,
had bis little finger severely Injured.
We hope nothing serious will come of
these accidents.
After these mishaps the Waltons
were too much disabled to play, so
the game was drawn at the end of the
third inning the score standing 15 to
2 in favor of Morgantown. Mr. Cross
was the Umpire.

men from the Keystone state who
were not directly connected with the
club, Messrs. D. S. Walton, W. S.
Pipes, G. Bane, A. B. Purman, H. H.
Hull, H. Berry hill and others.
The time for deciding the game
has not yet been set, but we hope to
see the game in the near future.
Mr. J. K. Durr offered the Green
Meadow Club a free supper, if, in
pfaying the R. & Rs. they made three
runs in nine innings. They say
they will eat the supper.
The citizens of Morgantown showed
their appreciation of our club, by
giving them a handsome subscription
last week.
The Sharpnacks, of Mastown, are
expected to play here on Saturday,
Sept. 1st.
The R. & Rs. received a challenge
from the Bellevernon B. B. Club last
week, but they are too far away.
In another column will be seen the
advertisement of Messrs. Fairchild,

and the fairness of its business trans
actions. Every turn-out is warranted,
hence nothing but the best .are sold.
Messrs. Fairchild, LawheacT & Co.
