SInrton Sbnvea and # Woman Namf <1 Grey, Willi Whom Ho LUtd, are Se verely Treated by a Band of Men. Sunday night about nine o'clock, a band of men called at the hoire of Marion Shreves, on the Anshutz farm, two miles below Sistersville, and calling him out in the yard stripped him of all clothing, tied him to a tree and switched him with rods until the blood trickled down his back. They then tied him up by the thumbs to an apple tree for a few moments, after which they allowed him to dress and started him down the river, telling him that if he was ever caught around the farm again he would not get off so easily. Two of the men then went into the house and took the Grev woman out an$ switched her severely. She was warned that a coat of tar and feathers would be given her if she allowed Shreves to enter the house again. The actions of this couple have shocked the farming community in that section and being thoroughly tired ol it, a party of meif crossed over from the Ohio side Sunday night and gave them the treatment above stated.

A PATRIOTIC IICW * " Lay* an Eire on Wbleh are Inscribed the Worrit: '*lt*memb*r the Maine/* The "Greatest City on Earth" again comes to the front with a hen that is patriotic and lays eggs on which are the words, plain and dis tinct: "Remember the Maine.'' This :gg is now on exhibition at Sybert's grocery store, on Charles street, and is truly a remarkable :"reak of nature. The letters are perhaps a half-inch large and upon a first glance, appears more like a detection in tbe shell than letters, but upon closer inspection the pass-word of all Americans now can be seen without difficulty. Cases of this kind have occurred before, but little credence has been given as to the manner in which they occurred; however, i this seems to be the real thing, as the egg was found in a large basket among others and the proprietors firmly deny any knowledge of hav ing caused the letters to appear with acid. ? ? ?

Mr. Anderson wanted it both for his own use and to supply it to his friends and neighbors, as every family should have a bottle of it iu their home, not only for rheuma tism, but lame backs, sprains, swellings, cut, bruises and burns, for which it is unequalled.
