"Mr. Wright is a leading lawyer and skilled financier, an able political local organizer and knows where to put hie hands even on Republican votes when he needs them," nays the AUontown Chronicle of the Democratic candidate for auditor general. "He can talk pro jection at a tariff demonstration and free trade at a Democratic county meeting, but ho will have hard work to convince anybody that with the issues beforo the people this year and tlie faultless .ticket the Republicans have in the field he stands any show of election. "The Republican convention, too, was run by the people. It was free from boss rulo. Mr. Horrity's convention was the worst exhibition of the insincer ity of Democratic anti-boss pretensions we have ever had in this stato. It is rldioulouB for it to talk reform." A Tip to Business lion, At Logan, one of the principal towns in the Hocking valley coal regions, where Mojor McKinley spoke a few days ago, says the New York Press, he was greeted by a delegation of fifty former Democrats, .including a number of farm ers, who, declared their intention of voting for him. Among them was Darius White, a wealthy furniture manufac turer, whose family numbers fifteen voters, all heretofore Democrats, but now determined to voto for the Republi can ticket. There are many more busi ness men who will follow Mr. White's example, not' only in Ohio, but in all the states. CENTS for a window shade with fringe, others for 55o, CSo.and up.

' A wide-awake Impostor has succeeded in Retting in considerable work on a number of dupes in tho county, on tho strength of tho soldiers' monument to bo dedicated at Potisvillo on October 1st. Ho is selling bricks with tbo promise that 'tho names of purchasers will bo shown on tho face of thom in tho monument. As no brick? will faco tho structure tho fmud is quite plain. A number of Wm Fenn people aro victims. A young man with threadbare, dudish attiro strutted up and down the Lehigh Valley depot platform tho other day and vainly endeavored to mako an impression upon young ladie3 awaiting tho arrival of a train. Ho was.a young man whoso nppoar ance" Indicated former prosperity! or a fortunato acquaintance with a' man of large and fashionable wardrobe, The Ward McAllister outfit' made his flgura as pro- sentablo as 'an iceberg in a tennis suit, hut he was happy in the thought that ho was cutting a stunning display. A reporter watched him with intorest, but tho young ladies tho fellow atlompted to dazzlo re mained as cold as siono. Up and down tho platform tbo imitation dude strutted, but suddenly he lost hi hold on tho grace ful stride. Evldontly there wa3 something wrong. His promenading territory grad ually became more circumscribed and his gazo seemed to become fixed upon tho platform. Suddenly ho stopped.norvously, tbiew glances right and left, stooped, as if in tho act of fixing a shoe laco, resumed an erect position, and then suddenly darted around tbo north end of tho depot. Had his corset string broken, or bad ho lost his garter? No, dear girls; bis hand had clutched a disca ded cigar stump. Tho nungarana living in tho Bobbins row of houses that border on tho Lohjgh Vnlley railroad, opposite tho lumboryard, take great intorost in poultry raising, and when a fowl meets-death beneath tho heart less wheels of passing trains its loss smites tho ownor with doep sadness. Hence It is that the women of tho row watch tbo fowl as a mother guards her child. Yesterday one of tho women saw one of hor chickens on the track. She chased it, and after a good run and many dodges, succeeded in making a capture. Taking the chicken in one arm she slappSd It two or tbreo times on the head and chattered away in Hun garian as a woman scolds a guilty hoy. . Thoro was an exciting sceno at the rail road treetlo near tho Pennsylvania depot ono afternoon this weok. A cow attempted to go over the narrow board-walk of tho trestle and when about ono-thlrd over missed its footing. Ono of Its hind and fore legs went down hetweon the sills and It was unable to move.

DAVID M'MURTKIB GEEGG Republican Candidate for Auditor General, In speaking of General Greggs' candi dacy for auditor general, Colonel John McElroy, editor of The National Tri bune, and ono of the best posted men in journalism on military plans nnd oper ations and the personal services and brave deeds of officers on the Union side in the rebollion, while chatting in Washington the other day said: "Any ono who knows anything about the services of the higher officers in the late war must feel gratified at the nom ination of General Gregg. The Penur Bylvaninns should feel proud of such a candidate, and sotting nil politics aside should show their appreciation of his distinguished services by giving him au enormous majority. "Gregg, next to Meado, Hancock and Reynolds) was tho greatest soldier Penn sylvania produced. By all means he was a greater soldier .than Beavr. He was second only to tho first cavalry leader of the national arms. The first was tho only Sheridan. The people of the country never had a chance to know of Gregg at his real worth on account of hti inherent inodosty. "Take GeneralJames H. Wilson, part of whose command captured Jefferson Davis; he, by some, is thought the most dashing cavalry pfflcer next to Sheridan. But Wilson was boomed 'considerably during the lost year, of the war, and hav ing boon associated .with. General Grant's headquarters ,he had some advantage of opportunities. "I should put Gregg first. He was the same grade as Wilson, Buford, Kil Patrick, Merritt, Custer, but he was su perior to any of them. He commanded a division when they began to mass the cavalry, and his services were incom parable. He fought tho great cavalry fights which preceded Gettysburg, and history records with pride the bervlces of his battalions of troopers ut that des nerato crisis of arms in the war for the Union. ( "Gregg was a great soldier, and for the people of Pennsylvania to do any thing but to handsomely honor him In this campaign for civic office would im peach their gratitude, and it might al most be said their patriotism."

MONEY WAS NOT AN INCENTIVE Interesting Toatimony in tho Great Will Contest at Salem Mrs. Soarlos In Sound Mind Whon Sho Signod tho Will. Saleh, Mass., Sen. 23. At tho begin ning or tho trial or the Hopklni-Scarles will case yostorday, all of tho contestant wero either present personally or ropro aented by distinguished counsel. The Crst proceedings wero the reading of tho petition and will. William W. Dodge, a wltnea to the will, testlllod tl going from Cambridge to Mothuen July 10, 18a, and drawing tho will, of Mrs Searles. It was read to her, and bIig signed it after declaring that It expressed her wishes. Sho was to all nppoaraucos of sound mind. Mr. Burleigh, of counsel for Timothy Hopkins, asked that thu will of Kdward S. Searlo, mentioned as having been drawn at the same time, be produced. Incidental to tho discussion of this re quest, Mr. Lincoln, for tho executor, stated that thu executor did not concede the right of Timothy Hopkins to appear ns the adopted eon. Mr. Burleigh re peated that both tho will and uotico ro cognizod tho relationship. Mr. Burleigh pressed tho demand for Mr. Searlo's will and tho Court rulod that it was competent, but declined to postpone tho hearing, directing tho ex ecutors, however, to produce tho will. Mr. Burleigh proceeded to cross-examine witnesses, his main point being tho fact tha; the name "Timothy Hopkins" was written apparently in a different ink and in a blank space left for the name, Mr. Dodgo stated that his Impression was that he left tho apace until ho got to Mcthuen, as ho was not sure whether thero was a middle initial. Ho had been Instructed to draw a will leaving all tho property to Mr. Soarlos, and as his duty as a lawyer required, ho Inserted tho noctlon regarding tho omis sion of tho name of Timothy Hopkins. Ho called tho spocial nttentlou of Mrs. Searles to this and told her he could modify it if sho desired, but sho stilted that it expressed her wishes, and it was executed. Witness took it away and sent It to Now York to the executor. The examination of Edward V. Searles was then commenced. Ho first mot Mrs. Hopkins in March, 18S3, nt Snn Fran cisco, golug to her house with a lettor of introduction to look over the house. He then detailed his acquaintance and visits to Mrs. Hopkins. Tho first proposition of marriage be tween tho, two came from Mrs. Hopkins in New York in 1883. He did not assent to it for a year, but in December, 1881, ho entertained tho proposition; know at tho time thnt Mrs. Hopkins was born in 1820. He delayod accepting the proposi tion of mnrrlngu to give her a chance to be suro that she was satisfied, and after ho entertained it delayed marriage for three yoars. In tho spring of 1880 went to Florida, as tho guest of Mrs. Hopkins, in her pri vate car. Ho was accompanied by Miss Cass of Great Barrlugton. Witness, from 1885 to 1887, was superintending the building of Mrs. Hopkins' house nt Great. Barrington. Ho has understood that tho son Timothy, In connection with the railroad people, managed her affairs; hod been told by Mrs. Hopkins that Timothy hod objected to the marriage, hut had cherished no ill-will toward him for it; tho agreement of marriage was entered Into in September, 1837, on wit ness' part because he greatly admired her. In reply to a question he said that ho married her for all sho had both love and money, but should uover have married hor for money alone. Did not know of the will made the day of the lUHrrlago, November 8, 1887, until after her death, hut did not think it was iutuntloually made behind his back. THE X.UTTEHS MADE l'UHLIC.

District-Attorney Graham yesterdaj gave out to tho newspapers the inuch-talkud-of corre spondence between Audltor-Goneral Mo Camant and Cashior Llvesoy on the ono side, and ex-City Treasurer Bardsloy on the other, which it is contended only needed tho corroborative evidence of Bardsley himself to enable Mr. Graham to frame a criminal indictment against Mr. McCamant.

A Vivid Picture of Dlstrcpsing Inactivity. "At Inst we urn .done I" It was the man who spoke. The woman trembled and lifted hr eyes to his faeo. They were beautiful eyes, lut they wero tremulous eyes ; eyes which look out from a bos.rt which is irresolute, tearful. Ho ttaind with his heavy foot upon tho fl m f the room. The oihoos brought back In their invisi ble arms tho sound, and let it ripplo out again until it struck tho walls onco more, and fell into tho vnt void of silence. A bat disturbed by tho unusual activity, darted from a corner and blindly dashed in eccentric convolutions about tho dusty building. Great ropes of cobwebs hung down from tho colling, and across tho corner of tho room dead flies Bwung lightly In tho ham mocks tho spiders had fastoned thero. Tho dust rose in listless clou.'s from tho shock of tho heavy footfall, and sank again, overcome by its own inortla. Even tho air was rotting. Tho spirit of tho dosolailon of desolation sjemod to pervado tho placo. Tho woman looked furtively around upon her dim surroundings and shivorcd. Tho man laughed harshly. "Alqno, I said," ho growled. "Yes," sho murmured. A ialnt light struggled in through tho great windows In front, thick with dust. " "Whoroaro we?" sho whispered and shivered as tho bat dashod into her hair. "Liston," ho replied hoarsely, "wo are in a storo which does not advertise."
