A Childs It iracnlons Escape from a Dan gtront Predicament. Lancaster New Era. A most remarkable esoape from death occurred on Saturday evening at 0:30 o'clock, a number of people being witnesses of a child's peril and a mother's heroism and devotion. At No. 19 Weat street resides David G. Miley and family and it was during his temporary absence that his little son, David G. Miley, Jr., came near losing his life. Tbe baby, whioh ie only 19 months old, bad been put to bed in its mother's bedroom and at tbe hoar above stated she was sitting on the front stoop wnen a neighbor woman living on tbe opposite side of the street screamed and then called out to her, "Oh, Mrs. Miley, your child is falling off the roof 1" The mother sprang up and looked towards the window of the room in which she supposed tbe obild was and then oast tier eyes to the roof of tbe boose, a two-story building. As she did so she saw her baby boy slide off the slate. She was horrified, bat with maternal instinct stretched forth ber arms, and the little one, whioh weighs 38 pounds, dropped into them. Tbe shock of the fall knocked tbe mother to the earth, insensible, but the baby was saved, and, beyond being badly shaken up, sustained no ill effects from Its fall and half an hoar latar was trotting about all right. Mrs. Miley was carried into the house by witnesses of tbe affair and there Dr. L. M. Herr attended her nntil Dr. Einard, tbe family pbysioiao, arrived. Her breast had been slightly Injured, ss the ehild fell heavily on It, and her nose bled some from being struck by tbe little one. In a short time Mrs. Miley was able to be about again. The ohiid, after being put into the crib, had crawled from it when left alone and gone up stairs to the garret The window was gained by means of a obair and after pushing aside a wire screen tbe little one had orswled out on to tbe roof. It bsd undoubtedly lost its footing on tbe slate roof and fallen, as stated. THE ECHOS OF TOWN TALK Local Items Taken Trom Our Reporter's Note Book. HAPPENINGS SEES BY THE E2PBESS PUNGENT POT POVKBI.

The Look Haven base ball club received Its first coat of whitewash yesterday whioh was administered in an artiatio manner by their old rivals, the WiUlamsports. Pet-rikin pitched a fineigame for the boms team and was well backed by Mnsser behind tbe bat He promises to make one of the beat of tbe several excellent pitchers that have graduated from the Look Haven club. The support otherwise waa not np to tbe standard and tbe batting of the en tire club weak. Tbey most learn to bat if tbey want to win games and draw crowds to see them. Those who attend bsse ball like to see bitting', arid especially by tbe club that baa tbeir sympathy. Praetice boys 1 Get out and have Petrikin pitch and if yon succeed in hitting him you will be able to do tbe same with most of the pitchers that oome this way. The Williamsport club is composed of a gentlemanly-set of fellews who put np a fair game ot ball, but contains several "coacbera" that endeavor to "rattle" their opponents with "ohin" music. They and tbe "kids" were tbe special features of yesterday's game, outsider of Petrikin's pitching and the home ran of Westfall, who fanned wind thereafter.

The Harriaburg Independtnt sizes up tbe situation very correctly when it says that there is pleasure to those who are imbued with what is proper Btate pride .and wbo have tbe opportunity daily, in handling large numbers of newspapers published in the inland cities of Pennsylvania, to see the evidences of their prosperity displayed in tbe advertising columns of those journals. Tbe advertisements in a local newspaper is the best index which an outsider needs to point out tbe degress of turift.en-terpriae, industry and prosperity ot all such cities. This we dsily discover In tbe newspapers ot Reading, Lancaster, West Chester, York, Soranton, Wllkes-bsrre, Pottsville, Eaaton, Lebanon, Bethlehem, Bloomsbnrg, Huntingdon, Altoona Tyrone, Lewiatown, Bellefonte, Lock Haven, Meadvllle, Washington, and other localities unnecessary to enumerate, in all of which the tone and appearance ot tbeir newspapers is the clearest evidenoe of tbeir well-established business prosperity. It is tbe newspaper which affords tbe best evidence of the business success of any locality. If advertising is freely done by manufacturers and merohants; if local columns contain the incidents sure to be found in an sctive looslity, and tbe newspaper published there has the air of success In its columns, it may be taken as proof that tbe city or borough is on the high road to success. Pennsylvania is riob in such 'settlements." Her inland oltiee and boroughs are all of a thrifty and go ahead spirit, evidence of which we And in the columns of onr exchanges from suoh plaoea, and in the perusal of whioh we take peculiar pride as a Pennsylvania journalist. It may net be olaiming too much to write that the newspapers in tbe same olass of localities is no State in tbe TJnion exceed those of Pennsylvania in tbis line of exhibits of local success.

The first cost in tbis country averages 10 oents sod a fraction a pound, aggregating 156,347,800.

One large item of expense in Brazil is to get the coffee to market. Freight charges as high ss 14 cents a ton a mile have been paid, which from a distant plantation to Rio Janeiro means from Sl.TC to (3.50 a sack. The highest chsrge from Rio to New York is 65 cents a box. Evldeotlj Fond of Strawberries.
