VOL. VI. No.- 25. HE MOURNS HIS LOSS. HIS AFFECTIONS UNRETURNED AND HIS POCKETBOOK DAMAGED. The Sal Experience of n I'olantlor Wlio Sent to the Old Country for the (iirl Me Loved and on Their Marriage Morn' She Repulses Him. From the Nanticoko News. Tuesday morning it was 'Squire Powell's lot to hear one of the most peculiar cases eyer brought before a Nanticoke magistrate. Some time ago, away back in the "Old Country," Max Valintz became deeply enamoured of a young Polish beauty known as Miss Stefmia Staniswaska. As time wore on and Max's passion grew more ardent he decided to emigrate to this country where he would have a better oppor tunity of providing a home fortheobject of his heart. Stefinia, with all the protestations known to a coquette, promised to follow him when he should send for her. Con trary to the usual custom the man kept his word and sent for Miss Staniswaska. She arrived here a short time ago and preparations were immediately made for their marriage. Max proceeded to purchase a complete outfit for the young lady, spending about fifty dollars for it. They went to AVilkes- Barre and secured a marriage license and Sunday the bans of marriage were proclaimed in the Polish church of our city. However, Tuesday morning, Stefinia informed Max in that charming way of hers, that she didn't care to marry him, and that in this glorious country she might find some one whom she loved better than she did him. This declara tion nearly broke the poor fellow's heart. (She had broken his poeketbook before she said anything). lie immediately had the young lady arrested for obtain ing money qn false pretense. He also charged her with stealing twenty dollars from his trunk. Squire Powell held the young lady in S3OO bail on each charge to settle the matter in court. Frank Drogdoski became her bondsman.

Thomas, of Harrisburg: William Catlin, Monongahela City; James A: Howard, Philadelphia; Samuel Jordan, Carlisle; James Neodham, Philadelphia; John Simpson, Harrisburg. The report of District Grand Mas ter Denny showed ninety lodges to be represented, with a membership of nearly 5000. The Bpeaker urged the establishment of suitable headquarters for the order in Philadelphia, and sug gested plans looking to securing the necessary funds. He recommended the establishment of juvenile societies and said the funeral fund was no longer an experiment. He also recommended the solection of an assistant grand secretary, which was necessary to relieve the grand secretary. At the afternoon session addresses on the subjects and aims of the order were delivered. Forty Hours Devotion. The forty hours devotion at St. Ann's church this week was largely attended. On Sunday evening Rev. Father Moylan, of Hazleton. preached a sermon on the words of St. Paul, "Now is the accept able time."

The pastor of tho Hungarian church at Hazleton spoke on Tuesday evening on the same subject. At the Opera Iluune. Humphrey's comedians at the opera house on Monday evening failed to at tract as large an audience as was ex pected, though tho show is comparative ly a good one and has many funny situ ations, as was demonstrated by the loud applause and repeated recalls ac corded the principal comedians. The audience was well pleased and enjoyed the excellent music of the orchestra. Manager Welsh will likely have the company play a return date here in December. Married.

Boles, which is part 3 of the annual report of the secretary of internal affairs, Thomas J. Stewart, is nearly ready for distribution. From ad vance sheets it is learned that a promi nent feature of the report is an exten sivo historical and statistical account of oil discovery in the western part of the state, and how it led to a prospecting fever. Tho first oil found in Pennsylvania was on Oil creek, which empties into tho Allegheny river, on top of the water. This was in 1789. Little enterprise was spent in it until the present century, when Col. Drake, in 1858, drilled his great well near Titusvillo, which pro duced 25 barreis a day. Soon after this the prospecting fever seized a number of men, and in a short time hundreds of wells were in opera tion, some producing by their own force, 3000 barrels of crude petroleum in a day. The price for the crude product in 1861 was not less than 58 cents a gallon, whereas in the present year the produc tion is so great that it brings only 34 cents. Not Allowed to liecomo u Citizen. A sensational echo of the Homestead strike was heard in the United States district court at Pittsburg on Monday.

Indictments charging Ross with murder, treason, riot and conspiracy are still pending. The decision affects hundreds of unnatura lized Homesteaders. BUSINESS BRIEFS.

The unusual announcement is made in Reading of the sale of a whole villiage to settle an estate. The villiage in ques tion is Lobachsville, situated in Pike township.

The Tamaqua Recorder says: A young lady of Drifton not only repairs her own shoes, but those of the whole family. It is said that sho is proud of her ability as a cobbler. It is quite likely that her parents are, too, if she walks the streets as much as some of the Tamaqua young ladies. Women as Shoeblacks. A custom is rapidly gaining- ground in Franco, and especially in Toulon and certain other towns, which, it ma}' safely be prophesiod, will not flml much imitation in this country. This is the employment of women as street shoeblacks. The French women shoeblucks are mosteoqucttishly gotten up, and as to their caps and frills havo somewhat the appearance of hospital nurses, and it is surprising that though their occu pation is a tolerably dirty one they al ways seem clean and tidyi some of them are doing the polishing in gaunt let gloves. In the towns in which they are em ployed they certainly arc a success pe cuniarily, especially where English and American visitors, who generally seem to treat the whole affair as a good 1 joke, are numerous. It is said that one reason for the oo- ; cupation being a popular one among women of a certain grade in life is that many of the fair polishers havo mar ried opulent customers who have been s impressed by their shining qualities. rickH Up Outside Families. ] It is no uncommon thing to sec a male ostrich strutting about followed by three or four distinct broods, all of d life rent sizes. When the incubating process is completed the cock bird leads his young ones off, and if he 1 meets another proud papa engages in < a terrific combat with him. The van quished bird retires without a single chick, while the other, surrounded by the two broods, walks away proudly. Slaughtering Animals In Ilerlln. In Berlin no animal may be killed for food, under a heavy penalty, except at the municipal slaughter house. Every animal is not only subjected to a close scientific investigation, but specimens of its blood and tissues are examined under powerful microscopes —forty-five female microscopists, with eyes trained to the work, being con stantly employed.
