Interesting Interview Wttli an Ohio County
Gentleman.
Mr. L. P. Siaaon, of this county, an ex
tensive cattle and sheep raiser and also a
wool buyer for many years, in discussing
the prospects for the sale ot wool this sea
son to a Pittsburg reporter, said: 'The
mortality amoag sheep hut season was
something fearful. la my own connty hun
dred« of sheep literally starred to death.
The winter began early, after one of the
moat barren harvests in local history. The
intense heat of the summer of 1&* 1, tem
pered by very few showers and local rains,
served not only to affect the crops
of corn and oats, bat literally to burn the
grass on the ground. The hay crop was
exceptionally light. The winter of Ids 54
was a phenomenal one. both in character
and the matter of duration. At no time
was it pro ti tab le to allow stock to ran at
large, which the dearth of food made almost
imperative. As early as February the ex
actions of the weather had exhausted the
scanty stores of the summer and fall. In
March nearly every farmer had no proven
der for hi* sheep, and they in many in
stances were forced to tarn th«m out to die,
which they did by scores all over the coun
ty and the adjoining county of Washington
in Pennsylvania."
In response to'a question as to whether
sheep were as abundant in Western Penn
sylvania, Western Virginia and Eastern
Ohio as formerly, Mr. Siason said:
"Oh, no. The matter of sheep hnabandry
has fallen off very materially within the last
five or ten years. Wool does not p*y the
same pricea that it formerly did. There is
no incentive to farmers to raise it What
with Australian, African and other foreign
competition, and the development of com
petition in Southern States, there is little
encouragement for a farmer here who ra>nt
raise sheep, feed them and compete Or
prices for them and their products in a cli
mate that is in all essentials again«: their
interests. Farmers have largely tnroad
their attention to the culture of other ani
mal« aoi are allowing the sh*ep ro go."
Mr. SUeon thinks there will be little or no
improvement in the price ot wool this v«%r
es mach of the c!ip of 1331 is still in
the hands of growers.

is what will the loss be ? But let the loss be what it may, we are going to sell our stock, while the season is on. We are
not the kind of people "to hang on" to our Goods, wishing and hoping for customers who will buy them and pay us a profit.
Not a bit of it. If the season is "off" and buyers few we put such prices on our Goods as to make them go. Take for
instance, last week. We inaugurated a Cut Price Sale in Men's and Boys' Clothing, and as a result we did a rattling and
rushing trade. :

HORRIBLE ACCIDENT.
Miss Alice Morris Terribly Burned
By Oil.
Her Injuries Probably Fatal—Her Father
Badly Injured in Endeavoring to
Extinguish the Flames.
A terrible accident, attended with injur
ii?8 to a young lady which in all probability
will result in ber death, and also with very
painful hurts to her father, occurred at the
residence ol Mr. Henry Morris, at the south
west corner of Thirteenth and Jacob streets,
about half past five o'clock last evening
The details, as nearly as could be learned
last evening, are as follows:
Miss Alice Morris, aged sixteen years, 1
was in the kitchen of the residence about
the hour named preparing supper, the other
members of the family being upstairs, her
father on the first floor. Suddenly the latter I
was startled by hearing
AX ÏXPI.OSIOX
in the kitchen, and instiuctively feeling thit
ecme terrible accident had befallen his |
daughter, he rushed down stairs. The
kitchen was filled with smoke, and ou the
floor beside the range a <|uantity of blazing
oil and broken glasi told the oft repeated
story of a lamp explosion. Cri^a of intense
•i-.ony from the yard caused Mr. Morris to
rush thither, and thpre, under the hydrant,
he saw what he afterwards described as
A BLAZING BALL OF KIRK
—bis daughter. The hydrant was running,
wbtther started by the girl in her a^ony, in
the hope of extinguishing the Harnes, or
na\ing been left running by some one luv
inp occasion to use it previous to the acci
!♦-i t. no one can tell. Miss Morris had
crc uchtd beneath the spout, aud was making
frantic efforts to tear her blazing garments
from her p®rson. The father sprang to the
wcue, and with the assistance of the run
airg water and by pulling off his child's
garments, succeeded, although suffering
•serious injuries himself in the operation, in
ijueiiching the fire. l»y this time neighbors
had flocked to the sceue, the ti joies of the
burning oil in the kitchen were extinguished
uud the
WRiriUXfi AXI» M0AX1XC VICTIM
was carried to her room. messengers bein?
»t the same litne despatched f>r medical
aid. Two ph\sici:ini responded in a few
motrents, and an examination of Mis< Mor
ris injuries disclosed burns of a moat fright
till character distributed over her entire
person from htr head to her feet. She had
oeen attired ia a mother Hubbarl, and that
■/arment and her underclothing w.th
fhe exception of a tlanuel petti
a at, were almost entirely consumed.
Her wounds were dressed, and late I if
night she was euflering great aijony, with
the chances against her recovery, although <
her physicians would not hazard a definite
opinion until to day.
1 he exact circums nn' es attending the
mishap couid not be ùa n d, as Miss Morris,
u3 above stated, was alone in the kitchen,
and she was of course unable to give any
account of the matter. Her father thought,
'rom an examination of the room, that the
lamp had been sitting on the mantle, near
'he range flue, unlighted, and that the oil
had in some manner became fired from the
chimney, the lamp exploding and
FALLIXG ("POX HIS PA'.'GilTtS
while she stood by the side of the ranze. It
:s difficult to conceive, however, how the
oil could have been ignited under these
circumstances, and the most plausible the
ory isthat the unfortunate girl exploded the
lamp in attempting to light it.
Mr. Morris, in extinguishingthe fire, was
fritfhifully burned about the hands and arms,
his left hand in particular having about all
the skin burned from the palm.

I THE POOH H0U3K.
I \ Car.l From Superintendent Jauics
Creighton.
To th( E<lilor of (he R'liitt r.
Siu: In reference to the reports as ?o the
condition of the cointv Infirmary, I to
say that the statements made by me to the
ladies of the Christian Association w re no:
made with a view to reflect on the former
Superintendent. My idea was to po nt out
ihe great difficulty, if not the impossibility,
of keeping a place inhabited by tha* c'ass
of inmates in a thoroughly cleanl/ condi
lion. Nearly all the inmates th it come
there have more or less lice and b-d bugs
on their persons, and it is herdly pissiblo
that the building can be kept entirely free
from tbem. The place was in a wow con
dition than usual at the time I took .'hir^e,
bnt this was no doubt due to tb3 fact
that Captain Plankey ha 1 for
a iong time been seriously i l and
unable to give it any attention. I h tve fre
quently said to members of the Poor House
Committee and to others that the home was
left in good condition, considering the cir
cumstances and difficulties under which
Capt. Plankey's family were placed during
the last few months of their occupancy. I
have always understood and believed that
while the late Superintendent was in good
health the house and its inmates were as
well taken care of as at any similar institu
tion in the country. The people that come
there are, as before stated, nearly a ways in
a filthy bodily condition, and infected with
vermin. A large proportion of them are
diseased, some of them being afflicted with
ailments of the most loathsome character.
Many of them are partially or wholly de
mented. and cannot be made to take proper
care of their persons or rooms. These
facts would make it difficult for the most
active roan with all the assistance he could
wish to keep the house at all times entirely
free from small vermin. I spoke of these
matters to the ladies in order that they
might perceive the difficulties of the situa
tion and not to criticise my predecessor or
any one else.
There is only one case in which cans are
set under the bedposts, and that waï dis
covered by the ladies themselves, without
their attention being called to it by me.
The man is a cranky old follow, and I think
placed the cans there out of a mere whim
rather than as a protection against bed
bufrs. as his room contains but few if any.
There are roaches in the house, bnt not in
such great numbers as might be inferred by
the language of your article in Tuesday's
paper. The supply of clothing for furnish
ing a change for new comers wa3 a little
short, because of the tact that the supply
had run down and the nimber of new
cornera was unusually Iarfce.

Foils Dead of Heart Disease at Nine
O'Clock Last Evening—Datai!«
of the Sad Affair.
James Maxwell, President of 'he Nation
al Bank of West Virginia, and one of the
beet known of our citizens, expired very
suddenly last evening of heart disease. Al
though the deceased had complained at va
rious limes during the past few wefks of
painful sensations in hia chest, over the re
gion of the heart, no especial notice had
been taken of the supposedly slight disorder
by him or Lis family, uud his demise, there
fore, wa3 entirely unexpected and proved a
terrible shock to his relatives and friends.
Mr. Maxwell in attendance upon the
meeting of the Board of Kducation last
evening where he
COMPLAINED TO A Kl'MBER OK MEMBERS
of pains in his chest. Ke remained at the
rooms of the Board but a short time, asking
permission oi the President to retire. Thea,
having some business to transact up town,
he proceeded to attend to it. The affair
being concluded, he stepped into (ieorge
Schellhase's grocery, norner of Market and
Eleventh sin et«, to wait lor a down town
car. Mr. Schtllhase was sitting in a
chair at the Market street entrance to his
store, and Mr. Maxwell drew up a chair
and sat down beside him for a few mo
ments' conversation, holding his street car
ticket between the lingers ot one hand.
Suddenly the deceased put his hand to
his left breast and complained of a pain
Htfore Mr, Shellhase could do auything
tor his relief or call assistance
Mr. Maxwell's head fell forward with
his hat rolling to the floor. Mr. Schellhase
called for help, and ex-Mayor Kgerter and
Mr. Charles Tieman, who were on the op
posite side of the street ran over. Dr. Mc
Maetere was at once notified and responded
immediately. When he and Messrs. Kgerter
and Tieman arrived Mr. Maxweil was still
sitting in the chair, his countenance being
Dale and deathlike and his br a h coming in
convulsive gasps. The dying man was laid
i pon the 'ioor, when he showed signs of
retuning consciousness aud Dr. Me M asters
t-ndeavored to fau the spark into a flame,
but the restoratives applied failed of their
obj<ct and after a few moans death ensued
Dr. IIupp. «ho had also been summoned
at liM, appeared soou after Mr. Maxwell
aied, but thv body was by that time cold.
Ho'h mtdical gentlemen gave it as their
opinion that
was the cause of death, and an inquest was
r ot considered nfcessary. A la'ge crowd
had been attracted to the ppot by the news
ot the sad affair, many prominent citizens
being present. Intelligence of Mr Max
well's death was at once dispatched to his
late rehidence, No 2100 Market street, and
about 9:43 the bodv wm removed thither,
