If You Like Them, This will interest you: If onions, after they are peeled, are allowed to remain in salted water for an hour before boiling, they will lose their strong, peculiar flavor. Onions that are to be eaten raw may be treated in the same way. If you like them real well clip this out and paste it up in the kitchen where your wife or the cook can see it. In this connection it may be remarked that high author ities have reccommended onions as a breath purifier after using whiskey. Academic Exercises. Those who failed to attend the Ac- ademic exercises at the School build- ing on Wednesday evening, missed a rare treat. The decorations were profuse and elegant find arranged with unusual tatte The programme although quite lengthy, consisting of essays, oration, and declamations was with music, which prevented any appearance of monot- ony. Wo should like to mention seveial performers who" clid exceed ingly well, but to give all the good point would be lo reproduce tbe en- tire piogiamme, which we have not space to do. Terrible Death. Monday af ceruoou, Miner's Mills at Oswaj o, Batetaan HaEzard, while assisting tO'Stop a runaway tram of cars fell through a 'trap door in one of the cars and was instantly killed, and his body horribly mangled. His wife took the remains at once to their home at Pa Coroner ftascom was summoned, but tbe body WHS in Pennsylvania before he arrived at the scene. about thirty-five of age, and leaves a wife, but no children. Ball at Ceres, A fraud independent} ball will be given at the Gswpjb House, at Ceres ou Wednesday July 4th. Excellent music will be furnished by H. G. Orchestra. A gold watch and chain, with other pieces of fine jewelry, including Qeote pin, Ladies earrings etc., will be given to parties holding tacky numbers. These grand gifts shall be dispose of in lot- tery form, in such a manner as the managers of the dance shall decide upon. These managers are to be chosen by the company present. Tho fact that the bill will be only and that Capt. F. A. Chapman will have charge of all preparations is such guarantee that a first class time may be, expected.______________ The Big Bridge- The following will interest these of our readers who have never seen the high bridge-at Kinzua creek. The greatest elevation of the bridge 302 feet, is seventeen feet higher -than the spire of Trinity Church, twenty-tour feet higher than the summit of the famous Brooklyn bridge towers, above the high water mark, 145 feet higher than their ele- vation from the bridge roadway, and 82 feet higher than the Bunker Hill monument. The bridge is feet long and the iron of which it is built weighs over pounds. Last Sunday there were no lew than 13 excursion trains were run to this marvel of engineering skill. Ex cursions will be run every Sunday and those who do not go, will miss a grand sight, 'Forepaiigh and ihe Botcher.

When a lady flehes for comph- mente and succeeds in getting a tew uuderserved, stereotyped good things uatd to her, and then repeats them to her friends, with so'me embellish- mennte, I know what to call her, and can "size up" her umd quite Cut when a newspaper stoops to the practice of puftmg other papers, bending them marked copies expect- ing to get a nice notice in return, and then publishes this fished for compli- ment under a biy head, I think it has reached a point where free advertis- ing will not help it much, unless accompanied by a small dose of fnffci news _ I dislike to use your columns tor grumbling So much, but it seems to me taut it is tune tor some one to growl wben the is allowed to grow two feet high on our principal street, and rubbish aocumulate as it does on Union between tlie Park and Henley street. There is a most do-ipicdbie olass of people who always want you to give somebody else what thej twin a but who Will not assume any responsibilty tor said rncki t. One of this class said to me yestei- day, "say give that neighbor of mine a turning over. Heisu mean low- Jived scoundrel He beats his wife and drinks whihkey." "All said I, and I wrote up an item and read it to hira. "That's good" be saw. Then I requested him to sign it. "Ohno, my neighbor would get mad at mo, if he knew he replied. Exclaimed I, "would you have me write slanderous statements about him which youcaufcot support, and back up, and let me take the And highly indignant I left him. V Every nice evening, men and boys gather along Union sttwet in groups and obstruct tbe sidewalks w that a lady can scarcley pass. Now boys it seems to me that your innate Ameri- can gallantry, fumous the world over, would teach you to be more polite. There is certainly room enough for everybody without any crowding. We should have a real old fash- ioned immensely enjoyable time here on the Fourth of July. Every fami ly should make preparations for feeding at least a-doien extra Mouths. You who have efajoyed-the hospitali- ty of your relations in the country, should invite them to come to town on that oay, and prepare for them a good substantial dinner at your house. If one thousand families in Olean should do this, we would have the biggest crowd on the next Fourth, that this town ever But whatever you do, do not fail to impress upon the minds of people out of town that we will go ahead of the world on July 4th, 1SS3. V A short time ago a spasmodic effort was made to rid Bradford of her gambling places, and quite a dust was raised. But as soon as it settled they all came back, and now faro banks arc in full blast again. This reminds me that a short time ago one of your esteemed contemporaries made a raid on the gambling placesof Olean, but stopped short after getting the proprietors pUmc stricken There are now in full blast in Olean not less than six regular poker rooms, and many and rooms where poker is played every night. Your E C. should follow tiiem up. V common woman of the town was recently arrcst'-d for being such, but but upon examination the --ingular was rratle that prostitution and she was discharged. Now it struck iue being very; singular that although adultery and kindred things, and the keeping of a bad house are crimes, amendable to the law, yet the very thing which these laws are made to prevent is no crime. I think this a very contra- dictory law, and one that should be remedied. V I notice that the west side of Union stn et below tbe B. N. Y. P. B. B., is in very bad shape. There is a ra- vmc about eight feet deep into ,which a team of horses will plunge some fine day. injure the horses, killtbe driver, smash up tbe wagon, and leave v, weeping widow and fatherless child- ren. The question arises in my mind as to who would be responsible for such a calamity, as I aai told that the order to fill up this place was given a long time ago, by thus trustees, but the proper official has neglected to perfoiin his duty. Better haul a few loads of eirth than stand a suit for damages, w -x There ai e a lot of people in this ton n who claim to be aesthetic, yet thov will not suppoit anything which has rf. tendency to refine the masb Their jestheticism consists chiefly m the fact that, they believe tlieinsetres aesthetic because rhey have" tied up some uf daises and sun flow- ers.

Give the singing society proper encouragement next Friday night. I heard one of our night policemen complaining the other night because 'they were not furnished with keys to the lock up. Every time one- of the day policemen tootaup i priooner ha puts on a padlock; to which the night Men-have no keys, and when they arrest a man, they have to lead him all over town to find a key to open up tbe lock up. Oh! City Fathers, give our night policemen keys to the lockup, for they are the men who need them. The putting of two men from 6 a. m. to6 p. m., and the other two on from 6 p. m. to 6 a. m. is another peculiar thing. Why don't you treat all make it from 18 to 12.
