The malady was ush'red iu with a chill, followed by a high fever. Severe catarrhal symptoms immediately attacked both lungs. These continued throughout Saturday and Sunday, but in an ameliorated condition. On Monday an improvement in the left lung wafi noticed. Though pneumonia congestion was present in the right lung on Tuesday, all of tho symptoms became aggravated, and well dtivuloped pneumonia supervened in the right lung, accompanies by high fever and delirium which continued uutd his death, which occurred almost without premonition at S:-0 aud was due to pulmonary effusion.

A Xttw HiiilrHittl Xeciled t� Open tlila Va J tinkle Section. Look IIavk.v, Pa., Jan. 10th, 1S90. Editohs Exvuess: It has at last come to be well known to the public through this part of the State, that a railroad will be built this sniiimer up along Kettle Creek ami ioiu iho northern roads passing through New York State, going weBt and out to Canada and through alt the great western country. When this railroad is built we shall be able to ship our untold millions of tons of coal aud fire clay that heretofore has baeu virtually shut out ot market. But the veil is lilting so that the prospect of the future is grand for us ou the Kettle Creek coal field. To give the information to the outsido world I will recite some general points to show what can bo accomplished: Messrs. Muusoa lSo Metriraau have 10,000 acres, Iviutzing &(rMaun, (G.OOO acres; Karthus Coal & Iron Company, 10,000 acres; Charles Noyes, 2500 acres, more or less. Tho quality of this coal cannot be surpassed for steam purposes; also for puddling furnaces, as can ho shown by tests made at tho Lehigh Valley furnaces, wliuro it has beeu used for smclttog iron, as the reports of the company show. While I operated the Karthaus colliery several years ago I shipped a larger quantity of coal from the Karthaus coal mines to the Reuovo ctal yards for the use nf the locomotives on the lino of the P. & E. 11, U. ind I have no knowledge of its cot being entirely satisfactory while I was in charge of said mines. My blaokemith, Thomas Drohan, used the coal continually. I shipped from tho luuUung & Mann lands several boxes of coal, which proved equal to tho Karthaus coal at Karthaus. There is now being sent out from the Cook's Run mines (this is a branch of Kettle Creek) from y00 to 1000 tons of coal per day. Give us this now rail road up Kettle Creek and we will shorten the line about SO miles to the Lake Shore. Then wo will be able to ship into Rochester, Buffalo, aud adjacent cities millions of tuns of c-ul and tire cUy that cannot now reach a market for want of an outlet. Villi this new enterprise the district will lum" up in importance, as there is at least :OO.COO,000 tons nf coal nearer to market than any otLer. The fire clay, of whiob there are two distinct bedw, one hard aud one soft. The hard bed from 4 to 6 feet thick, aud tho soft from ten to twenty, covering several hundred acres. Before I close this article 1 would say here that these large land holders ought to look well into this movement aud aid it with capital to help the good work along, so that the whole valley will derive benefit from the new road, aud the various industries will open into now life. The matter should be vigorously pushed to a completion, and when it is once in operation money will begin to pour into the pockets o( the interested parties. Respectfully Yours, Geo. AnsHTUONci. ICKCOVEItED HIB DAUGHTER. A PliiiHfl of Salvation Army Life >'ot of m Kellgionff Character, Morris Notz, a prominent business fflau of Erie, found his daughter Annie, who disappeared fiom her comfortable home last June, working as a servant for a Washington avenue family, in Scrautou, on Friday last. Tho young woman, who is 19 years old and a good looking brunette, became enamored of a Salvation Army captain, named George Johns, who had charge of the Erie Corps, and whoso meetings she first attended with some companions through curiosity. Her parents learning of the meeting* with Johns took steps to prevent the young people getting together, but tho young woman's passion was blind. She delied their commands, and one morning she and Johns disappeared together, going to Williamsport, where a branch of the Army was located, and where they where married. Johns did not stay with his young wife very loug, leaving her iu a few weeks dud returning to England. The girl refrained from sending word to her parents and romaiulug with the army, went to Scrauton in November, several corps of the Army being located there. Finally sho engaged servic� fl with the Washington avenue family, where her father touud her after months of weary searching. The meeting between father and daughter was a happy one; the latter was forgiven, and together they startc'l for Erie to bring joy to a saddened home. To ItonuvlUe Tut Interment. The body of John II.

In the mean time the stranger while waiting for hia change said lie would step out and buy a pair of BUOta.

Eight Murderers to be Swung Off at the Saino Time Ta-Day. St. Louis, Jan. 15.-The dearh sentence of Madison James, one of the nine Indians sentenced to be hung at Fort Smith, Arkansas, Thursday was commuted yesterday to imprison meat for tiftcen years. This leaves eight of the nine to hang. Charles Billiard confidently expects to be reprieved. The others have giv�n up hope. Sam Gieueu and Jamison Burrs, the murderers of Sir. Joyce, have confessed the murder of a man uamed Hyde in Marco last. They shot him, tied a rock to his body aud sunk it (u a creek. John Billy has also confessed to shooting an unknown white mau three years agoontb.eCanad.iao river.

Duncan Clark's lady minstrels will delight the dudes auA bald beads of Dniiois to night. When a man is attacked by "la grippe" it makes him weak in his knees and strong in biB neeze.'1 It is remarkable that nobody has a bad cold this winter. Has that ailment gone �where the woodbine twinetbV "Butter," says a learned writer, "was unknown to the ancients." Then some of it cannot be as old as it seems. Yes, a man might save money by shaving himself, but think of the vast amount of valuable information he would mita. Duucan Clark's lady minstrels are spoken of in very complimentary terms by the newspapers where they have appeared. They say that girls can soften and whiten their hands by soaking them in dish water three times a day. This is in confidence. The State Flood Committee is endeavoring to secure an accurate list of deaths in all parts of tbe State which resulted from tbe great ilood. Li Grippe Berrell is the winsome name of the new born baby of Perry Berrell, of Cheater. May the name be proof against the surging epidemic. It ia stated that a Columbus, Ohio, girl, suffering from la grippe, sneezed 5,000 times-an hour. Come off, come off. It can't be done. It is a physical impossibil. ity. If she sneezed once every second she could only sneeze 3,GOO times, and even that number would kill an ordinary man. We don't know about it affecting an Ohio girl though. An Ohio girl is pratty tough. . A teacher in one of the publio Schools of this city baa au original and effective way of ascertaining whether the scholars are absent by permission or whether they are playing truant.

If the lad is playing truant be is caught up at once and made to suffer for bis little pecadillo. If he is abseut by permission it is an easy matter to inform the teaoher, and it ends there.

Swallowed a Bland Dollar. James Purcell, living ou tbo hill from Upper Black's Eddy, had a peculiar and trying experience recently.
