Lord Salisbury and the American Free Trade or^nns are siok enough, however. A manufacturer of one of the standard typewriters on the market says that there are 73,000 women who make a living in this couutry by running the machines. Lancaster oouuty reports 634,378,359 out at interest. That is a very respectably sum, but as it covers only suoh, money as is subjeot to taxation and does not cover stocks and many other classes of investment, the probability is the above named sum doo3 not aover more than half the money wealth of its people. What a beautiful plaoe for dobtors is the Argentine Republic just now? In fact a man can live a long while in South America on oredit. Revolutions happen bo often that the courts are in chronic disorder and the judgment debtor has no fear of a fine for contempt if he ignore a sum-uiuus in supplementary prooeediag. A Reading prodigal lias returned after an absence and a silenoe of thirteen years, and the fatted calf, wo understand, has been killed. It is much better not to bo a prodigal non, and the sort of a boy who won't write his mother for that longth of time doesn't deserve to be recognized a all. Boys who stay at home and raise fattod calves are much the finer sort. Fok the twelve months endiug June 30, IS90, the number of immigrants coming into this country was 438,619. This was not more than half as many as have oome to us in some former years, but one, we opine, will regret the falling off in num bers. If the number could be still fnrtber diminished or if some way oould be devised to improve the character of the im migrants, our people would be all the better satisfied._ Only a few months ago the representa tives of all the oountries in Central and South America were assembled in Washington dieooaraing on the beauties of arbitration as a method of averting bloodshed. Rut it is hard for these beautiful theories to overcome the old Adam in human nature. ThuB since that time Salvador and Guatemala have started a war with a probability that Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras will be drawn into it and now comes thenews of a "revolution" in tho Argentine Republic. Cooking n Chicken, Housekeepers do not always understand that a chicken, after the animal heat loaves tho body, is not fit for food in less than twentV'four hours. During that time the muscles are btiffened by tho rigor that succeeds directly after tbe depaiture of auimal heat in all animals, and are tougher than they are at any time previous. In Virginia and many parts of the South, cooks kill and dress poultry with great rapidity, and plunge the pieces of ohicken while they are still warm with animal heat into the fryiog kettle. This secures the tender, succulent dishes of fried chicken which are juBtly tho pride of the old Virginia cook. There is something repulsive to the Nuthorn housewife in serving up a fovrl that was perhaps a few moments before strutting about, tho pride of the yard. An equally good andteudor dish of chick-on may bo attained by keeping the fowl till the muscles relas, and it is in prime condition for food. In fact, only by tho rapid process of frying can the chioken bo cooked done before the muscles stiffen, This the Southern cook knows.-New York Tribune. DETAILS OF THE DISASTER.

A heavy oloud of inky blackness that rolled up from the northwest last evening about six o'olock bad a very threatening appearance. Vivid flashes of lightning, ghted up the bank of clouds frequently as the storm advanced and the fog driven before the storm bad a whirling movement that indicated danger. The wind, how-over, did no attain dangerous velocity, although great olouds of dust filled the air and tall trees swayed before it. The rainfall was slight and the oloud passed away without any damage being done here. At Williamsport the storm was quite heavy. DAMAGE BY HAIL AND LIGHTING. At Beeoh Creek a frame building near the Bald Eagle Valley railroad depot was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. No further particulars regarding the fire regarding the fire have been learned. The heaviest portion of the storm passed to the north of this oity, and in some places heard from tbe damage by hail was considerable. At Wool rich the fall of hail was slight but a gentleman from Pine Creek, who was in the oity today, states that the damage to tobacco and corn was great. Tbe hailstone were not large but fell thick for a considerable period of time. CLOUD-BURST US ALABAMA. Water to tho Depth of Three Feet Fulls in a Mining Town. Birmingham, July 2U.-A cloud-burst which oaused immense damage, ocourred yesterday morning just above the mining town of Horse Creek, in W alder county. The creek of the same name runs through a narrow valley, and it was on this stream that the cloud burst ocourred. The val ley was flooded to a depth of three feet, and a number of houses were swept away. All the coal chutes of the Horse Creek Mining Company were destroyed and thir ty-five cars loaded withooal were scattered down the valley. Over a mile of side track belonging to the Kansas City, Memphis and Birmingham railroad wero swept away, but the main line was not seriously damaged. Down tho valley below tho town, fences and houses were swept away and some live stock drowned. The total damage is estimated at$100,000. BASK BALL RECORD.

Water Is Scarce. The steam saw mill of Fredericks. Muuzo & Co., at Farrandsvilie, is shut down on account of the low stage of the water in Liok Run, the water being too low to float the logs to the mill. The company have about four and a half million feet of stock, one-half of which is yet iu the stream. A large dam is boing built for tho purpose of creating an artificial flood. Tho Largest in tho "World Locnti'd Ncnr Uronnwood, Texas. Mr. F. A. Swinden, of firownwood, Texas, enjoys tho distinction of owning tho only pecan orchard of any size iu tho world. "Yos,*' said he recently in Gal-ve6tou iu response to an interrogatory: "L have a pecan orchard of 11,000 trees, covering 400 acres, within two miles of tho town of Brownwood. Thore is no surer [ way to make a fbrtuno tuau to plaut .i pecan orchard and let. tho^trees grow. A tree eight years old will produce a bushel of nuts, and these are worth from $2 to fet per bushel, aud when tho tree is fully grown, say twelve to fifteen years old, it will bear about fourteen bushels of nuts. I think when my trees are eight yoarB old my first crop of pecans will not be leaa than 11,000 bushels, and tbe cost of gathering will not exceed ten cents a bushel. "Iu the meantime, while I am waiuny for the trees to mature, the land is not idle. I have part of it in cotton aud part in alfalfa. I have 150 acreB of the orchard in alfalfa. It produces three crops a year, acd an aore yields from three to four tons of hay, which is worth $10 a ton. My crop will bo about 300 tons this year. Thus you Bee that while the orchard is growing tho laud need not be idle. Of course, wheu tho trees begin to boar aud shade the ground, it would not bo practicable to cultivate the land between the trees. When my orchard begins to bear I shall sow it in orchard grass and thus secure a good turf, whioh will bo usofdl in gathering the crop. After the tirat frost the nuts will begin to drop off the trees. Then I will use a patent sweeper which will gather tho nuts in rows and theu they will be run through a machine to bo assorted, cleaned and polished. Thus tho cost of gathering will be comparatively small." five Innocents Run Down by a Fast Passenger Train on a Bridge, THREE Of THEM DASHED TO DEATH Sam Small Coming* Thursday, August 23tb, promises to bo a big day at Pine campmeeting. On that day the Good Templars of the Thirteeuth District will have special services on tho grounds and tho celebrated Evangelist, Sam Small, haB been engaged for the occasion. 0�t for an Alrlne. A special oar attached to a west bound passenger train on the P. & E. railroad yesterday had on board thirty-one children. They were going to Warren to spend a week among tbe mountains at tbe expense of the New York Tribune. The ohildren wero all from New York City. Heady for Uusineii. Brawn's new planing mill in the First ward is about ready for operation, the machinery being about all in. As the new machinery is of the latest and most improved kinds, the new mill will do doubt turn out only first class work. The Arrests la One Mouth. Chief of Police Power, of Renovo, in his report to the borough council, stated th;n since the last report he had made 31 arrests. They were for the following causes: Drunkenness, 23; disorderly conduct, ."j; ball playing, 2; larceny, 1. ZJaatb of Mxa. George Grist. Mrs. George Crist, of Pine Creek township, this county, died on Sunday aged about Bixty-sevon years. Mrs. Crist was an active member of tha M. E. church, and was much loved by all who knew her. Tho funeral ocourred yesterday. Stephens* HomcBtead Owned by a Negro. From the Atlanta Times. Btrange things occur every day, aud nothing is stranger than the mutations of fortune and condition. Truth is stranger than fiction. If some poet or novelist should describe the spectacle of a negro possesslug the estato of the Iato Jefferson Davis wc should dash it aBide as the pro-duet of a fertile imagination. And yet tho former home, in Marietta,of tho late Alex-, ander II. Stephens, is owned by a negro. I Mr. Frank Rogers, of Marietta, has recently I purchased the Stephens mansion, and is now repairing and renovating it for his, own private residence. To think taat the former home of the Vice President of the so called Confederate States of America should become the property of a negro seems romantic. The rfctraat where the "Great Commoner" thought his best thoughts, conceived his brilliant campaigns, and composed his most oleijueut speeches, is now resonant with pauering feet and prattling voioes of children, the offspring of nogro parents. Out of that same old mansion may some day oome a genius, the descendant of a negro, whose brilliance shall eclipse that of the "Great Commoner," and whose life shall not be coupled with a ''lost cause. 1 Who knows but that the ownership by a negro of this old aristocratic c*~ Ute may bo a prophecy of coming power, intiuonce, position, and wealth to tho whole race'1 riuch, at least, is the evident moral of this story. Mr. Rogers is to be congratulated ou his good fortune. He already owdb some of the finest business property in tho very centre of Marietta. Let others take hope, resolution, and inspiration from the exarn-plo of Frank Rogers. Such a m^.n is worth his weight in gold to any aorn-m unity. In nn Inntant nnd the Other Two Hnrled Into the Ittvur-The Engineer Saw the Victims I Jut Could Not Apply the Air Brakes Suddenly for Feur of DemoHstilus tho I(rld|;e. I1 ATTEitsoN, N. -L, July 29.-A slaughter ocourred ou the Erie Railroad bridge over Passaic river this evening. Five ohildren returning from a blackberry expedition with well filled baskets started to cross tho bridge. When uearly aoross tho bridge, which is without rail or foot path, the children saw a train approaching on the west bouDd track, and stopped upon the east bound track, but a fast passenger train came rushing toward them. The children were paralyzed with fear and orouchod together directly before the approaching train. Tbe engineer saw thorn but dared not appljttbe brakes suddenly, as that course might have oaused tho train to go through tho bridge. AN awful MOMENT. It was an awful moment. People on tha bank of the river shontect- to the children to get between the tracks, but their crioa were useless, for the heavy locomotive btruok the group of little ones and hurled three of them on the other track dead. The engineer was overcome at the op-palling sight. He had strength left, however, to stick to his post and atop the train as soon as it bad crossed the trestle. The passongers left the cars and Btrong men and women felt a siok feel iog creeping over thorn as the remains of the three slaughtered children met their gaze, THE VICTIMS. Jeutiio Drews, aged 13, Nellie Warren, aged 10, and Mamie Warren, her sister, agod 8, wero dashed to death. Jane War -ien, a^ed 13, was frightfully injured. Willio Warren was hurled into the river, where ho was found aiiv& in about a foot of water. The Warren ohildren all belonged to the same family.

A wife went to a dervish for a charm that would oure her husband of his very bad temper. She told the wise man that hey disagreed daily, and that in the end he always flew Into a passion and heather, though at times be was fond and kind. The wise man took from his bundle a full bottle and gave it to the woman, saying: Here is a charmed liquid. The minute you see signs of anger in your husband fill your mouth with it, and be careful to hold it there, until the last trace of ill-temper has disappeared. On no account must you swallow or lose one drop of it. When this is gone come to me for more." A mouth later the woman came back all smiles and thanks, with a great gold piece to exchange for more of the precious liquor. 'Indeed father," she said, "I would not be without your oharm for my life. The moment my husband begins to fret I run and fill my mouth and in a little while he is gentle and good again. He has not struck me once in all the month. All that I have I will give you for the precious water." - - -- - The dervish smiled, and then said: "My daughter, the charmed liquid was only water. Go you to the well and fill your bottle when you will. The only oharm is silence. You oould not talk back; and in all my experience it has taken two to make a quarrel." Water Front Improvement*.
