' JJ the Democratic party will work to keep the prices of the farmers' crops at a parity with his taxes and debts, it will be in more profitable business than trying to explain how it can keep silver at a parity with gold. The Democrats claim to have car ried Arkansas by 60.000 majority Well, why not? They have all the election machinery, and it la not the votes that count but the way they are counted. If there could be any moral weight in the result they might as well have counted the ma ority greater. WEEKLY CROP BULLETIN. Week KiiiIIiik Monday Sxptembnr ' 1800 (Jrnrral Cim11tlans. The teiuiMtrntura during the past week was below normal, with a largo percentage , of sunshine. In most sections tho rainfall was slight ly above the avernge. Cool nights provailod, and frosts ooeured on the 2d and 4th which were damaging to nnrlponod crops In some localities in tho northern counties. The late rains will provo beneficial to late growths, but a shortage will result from the recent drought, as it caused prematura riioning aud drying tip of many product. Considerable corn and buckwheat have been cut, both of which are good crops, but buckwheat hns not filled quite as expected. Fall seoding is woll ad vanced, but in some sections it lias been delayed by dry weather. But little tobacco is left standing j the crop was very good but thore was not as much raised at last year. Pasturago is fair and should improve with the late rains. The potato crop is a largo ono. The apple yield is large and grapes promising. Vege tables are plentiful and of good quali- ty. llrblire Building and Repairs. Luzerne county is building stone instead of iron bridges. They are not much more exponsivo originally and where properly constructed with slight repairs will last for agos. The Cotuwhaugh stone bridge built in May 1868 by Solon Cliapin cost fllOO and the repairs in 38 years have cost $88.60 or about 12.33 por year. A wooden bridge crossing the Shohola oreek in Blooming Grove township at Lords Valley built in 1856 was rebuilt in 1872 and the re pairs since have cost $82.67. The combination bridge across the Wal lenpaupac In Greene built in 1883 was robuile in 1895. The iron bridges vary in cost of repairs de pending on amount of travol, etc but the average cost of repairs per year on seven iron bridges built in 1888 and 1890 and costing $4,347,95 was 158.61 or an avorage of about $7.88 por yoar. In other words the iron bridgos cost ovor por cont por year for repairs on the original oost, and the stone bridge cost less than per cent per yoar, and the iron will evontually wear out while stone will not. A Meat Invention John C. Wallace, of this Borough has invented, and made application for a patent on a devloo to prevent a cow during the process of milking from stepping In the pail. While it has been considered a trait of good cow to give a full pail of milk and then kick it over the design, of this arrangement is to avoid the latter part of the tost and preserve the profits. Tho device is an attach ment of a piooe of tin fastened to the ears of the pail, and projecting sev. eral inches above it, in short' an ex. tension upward of the vessel so that bossy cannot lift hor foot over it. Thore is no apparent reason why it would not work successfully in I practical test, and be of great bene fit. It is simple, cheap and easily attached to any pail. . The Snyder Will SusUlued. Surrogate Howoll, of Orange coun ty rendered a decision last week sus taining the will of Frances Snyder, who it will be remembered died from the effect of poison last March. This will disinherits Martha Whittaker, her daughter, and gives the . bulk 'of the property to a neioe. Mrs. Sny dor it is presumed suspected the daughter of having administered the poison and acting under this belief disinherited her. The will was con tested on the ground of undue in nuiince and tliat the testatrix was not of sound mind when it was made. The amount of her estate was three policies of life insurance of tlOOO each.

I love tho little town that lies, In peaceful blls neath sunny skies And rolling hills nnd moiiutnlns round, Here natures choicest works alKiund. Fertile fields are suread abroad. Charming drives are quickly found r ails, clins, glens ami lovely views, Life, joy and health Infuse. Her people of all classes are, The purse proud rich and lowly poor, Brilliant sons and beauteous girls, Hero shrink not from the homeliest tolls. Not here Is heard the rush of trains, Nor shriek of whistles or orlca for alms But in oontented peaceful llfo, We live In peace away from strife. In summer when the elty people oomo, Seeking rest and a pleasaut home. we reel the lively townlsh air Waking us up with a brilliant glare. But soon the scene Is chanted again. The summer girl begins to wane j ne nubinun leavua uegin m mil Shedding s glory over all. The landscape with most charming tints, 1 ne silvery river witn Its lovely glints, Framed in the hills a glorious picture, Such as artists fain would capture. Soon winter looks up every stream ; Ol then the skating, boyhoods dream, And sleigh rides, give the season zest, With pretty girls, all there we're blest. Vacation oomes at Christmas time, And wanderers return to dance and dine The happy days glide swiftly by, Too fast alas the moments fly. The spring returns a ohango takes place, Miirord resumes ner sunny grace The maples soon take on their sheen. Arbutus blooms, the fields arc green. Her roads are paved with natures hand, Her streams the finest In the land, The wheelmnns new found paradise; The aDglers droam of trout that rise. Oh Mllford "loveliest of the vale," Your joys abound and never fail; All who come herewith loud proclaim Assort that they'll return again. w. M. D. Brodhad Homestead Improvements.

SOCIETY EVENTS. A hop was held ,nt tho residence of Philip Stoolo, last Monday even ing, in honor of Mrs. Sangster, who is visiting thcro. Tho house was in a burst of gayety, lights flashed forth from tho numerous windows and Chinese lanterns around tho piazza. Erio orchestra furnished musio for those who tripped tho light fantastio too. They broke up at an early hour and reported an enjoyable time. The climax of social gaiety in Mil ford was reached on Labor Day eve ning when the young ladios of the town gave a leap year hop in the apartment's of Mrs. Biddis on Broad street. Those rooms so woll adapted for social funotions were very ar tistically decorated. From the coil ing of tho ball room hung a largo numljor of bright Japanese lanterns, while the walls wore literally covered with brilliant flowers, corn stalks, and wild grapes, in such a manner as to make ono think on en tering tliat he had struck a minia ture gardon of Eden or dropped into fairy land. The musio was truly inspiring so much so that the lawyers, editors and other dignified personages of the town joined with their voices and laughter in a good old-fashioned quadrille, which was conceded by all to bo most graceful and in spiring dance of tho evening. Tho affair was one of those rare oc casions in which the spirit of rivalry did not enter. All were the best of friends, and each ono gloried in tho pleasure and success of his neigh bor. Tho young ladies acting as hostess wore Misses Lila and Bossie Van Etten, Biddis, Nichols and Kleinhans.
