The Wmtera railroad president*, at tbiir meeting in New Yurit a few daye ago, formed what ia praetieally aoo-opera-tlTS aaaooiation, to oontrol the whole railroad boaioMf weet of Cbioago and Bt Lonta.     _ D�. ViBOBOW, tlie eminent German phy-�ieiaB, eutionaly says too mnch blind faith ahoald not be given to tbeKocb onre. tim� and many eiperimecta will be needed to determine iu value. That is the true spirit of soience and common aaoae, also. Thb participants in the late political oampaigo in PennayWania have been �tisok moat impartially by the bad wind that has been blowing in the financial world, and this fact may serve to temper a good deal of hasty and injudiciuas criticism. The Loaisiana Lotteery is not dead. It ia now trying to break the force of the Constitutional amendment to put it out of existenoe, and will fight the Governor's veto of the bill to eTtend its franchise. It seems to think this is worth fighting for still, though it bss been cut off from both mall and express facilities, except such as It can obtain surreptitiously. A CBiho ib Hew York of eighteen moB&s, on whom the Koch lymph was tried for tabercnlons meningitis, is dead. Tb� inoculation took place last Friday, and it ia alleged that the child was than in a dying condition, so that it was beyond the reach of Koch's sure. Why, then, waa it tried? The answer seems to be that it waa simply to gratify professional etiriosity, and the baby, being only a foandliog witboat friends, there was no one to protest aeainbt such a rash experiment. J. H. Cahfbell, of the Department of Internal Affairs at Barrisburg, writes to the Pfailadalphia Inquirer to correct the atatameot of a cenaua table which has been printed in many State papers, and which purported to show that Uniontown had lost in population aiooe the nensns of 1880. Instead of losing it appears that Uaiootown has made a big gain. Mr. Campbell says the population in 1880 waa 3,263 and in 1890 6,450, and that its glass works, rolling mills and blast furnaces cake it a very live place. Last spring the Barvard University students bad the courage to elect a col-1 oted stndeat to one of the highest honors in their gift, and, what is more, the honor was won upon tha merits of the man himself; now tha most prominent academy In all Kew Kngland, Exeter, baa gone and donei likawlae. He is a Philadelphia boy, and ranka high in acholarahip. He is a Tigorona writer, the editor of two academy papera and a most accomplishsi orator. This latter accomplishment baa won him the honor of olaaa-day orator. Tm Fireman's Manual. KeMra. J. N. Wellivor & Co. have taken the agency for the Agricultural Insur-anM (ompany snd to them the Express is indebted for a oopy of the Fireman's Maoaal issosd by the company and a copy of which was preseated to each volunteer company represented in the Annual Convention held at Watertown, N. Y. The book is of interest to firemen and fire under vrriters. THE EWS BY TELSGRAPH. A Uantle ot White Spreads Itself Over � Many States, D��F SHOW B�OOKD ALUOST BEATEN Aanttacr Express Company.

PlUabnrc Fairly Bnried by tlie Btantlful, the FaU Boinc tbe Biavleit For Five Tean-HoTHS KlUwl and Hen Injurad By Concoaled Electric Wl��-rhr�e Feet of Snow In Tiralnls. Pittsburg, Deo. 17.-We are having the heaviest snowfall in five years. Wires are down ail over the two cities. Throe horses were killed and several men badly injured this moruing by contact with electric light wires. Tbe aituatioo is so desperate that tbe Department of Public Safety has ordered all electric street car lines to stop running for the pressot. Trains from the west are on time, but those from tbe east are al ready delayed three and a half hours, and tha time of their arrival is indefinate. iid8ike38 virtually BUSrKKDED. All day long it has cootinued.to snow. On the railroads no freight trains whatever are running, and passenger trains that straggled through are late from one to six hours. Business in the city is almost entirely suspended, an example being .the fact that no quotBtiona>ere posted at the petroleum exohange during tbe day, owing to the lack of telegraphic communication. The police patrol and fire alarm wires are badly crippled, and the switch board at tbe City Hall was burned out this morning. Electric light wires were pros-trated early in the day.'and those dependent on them are without light. All the street car lines in acnth Pittsburg were tied up and the incline planes were not running. tek 6itoatiok obowihg lYOESI. At Bedford two feet of enow is reported, with a complete blockade of tbe lumber business along the Blue and Laurel Ridge mountains. West Virginia: and eastern Ohio have suffered greatly, and there, as here, the situation Is growing worse. Late this afternoon the thermometer ran up to 45, and the snow (all chsmgud to a drizzling rain. At six o'clock the rain again changed to a heavy wet snow, which is still falling at mfdnight, and outside of a few weak bouse roofs crashed in by the weight no damage is reported. This is by far the heaviest storm experi-eneed here for five years, and the present iodioationa are that even this record wil' be completely eelipaed. Tbe average fall is rapidly nearing tbe two fool line. Millions of tons of coal are lying m the back water from the dam, and should a rapid thaw ensue the greatest ;^damage will be along the rivers. At this hour tbe thermometer registers two degrees above freezing. is virqihia akd bobto cabolisa. STAnSTON, Va., Deo. 17.-The snow ceased this eveuing after a fall of tbres feet, whiob was followed by rain. All traina are bloaked. Asbevillr, Noith Carolina, reporta that a blinding snow storm prevailed there all last night and this moroioK. elsewhere is the state. Altoona, D�a. 17.-Over twenty one inches of snow fell here last night and to day. At 11 o'clock to-night the storm ia still raging, with little prospect of abatement. BusiueBS was generally suspended in consequence of the storm. Chester, Dec. 17.-The storm was very heavy here to-day, overflowiog the meadows, blowing down fences, and overturning a wagon, throwing out the driver. A driving rain and gale made luoomotiOD dangerous. Belleitoste, Pi. Dec, 17.-Snow began falling here last night and continued all day with no signs of abatement. It is now eighteen inches deep. Lakcabter, Pa., Dec. 17.-The windstorm in this viaioity last night aaJ today was severe. A large frame building on tbe fair grounds was blowujdosn, a few buildings were unroofed, trees were blown down and several cUimueys toppled. tThettlac tbalT ;lpp,ilu,.

It would have been successful if be bad not bad bis "bind feet tied." Mr. 8. in tbe future will buy turkeya dead inatead of live sa it ia much cheaper. Wrongly Informed. Tlie Jersey Shore Herald aays a notice is posted at the Beech Creek station in this city notifying young giria not to loaf io the depot, and saying that Look Haven girls are in the habit ot congregating at the depot for tbe purpose of: catching "drummers." This is a libel on Look Havttn girls, wbo are never seen at the depots excepting when about to take a journey. The Herald man' has been wrongly informed and an apology is in order. CLmNCWYlNSTITnTI Tfcs TBrty-fifUi |anu�l Qathsring of the Taaoheiw FBO0�Q>IiaS fP TO BOOH TO-BAT A Turkey Tilck. William F. Sperricg, superintendent of the Globe Bottling Works, ordinarily hi possessed of an extraordinary even temptr-ment, but a little incident occurred yesterday that riled him considerably, Tbe said William is also a good liver and an excellent judge of fowls of all kinds. Asia his usual oubtom he attended market yesterday, and among other purobasas was a fine, large turkey. Taking; the bird to bis place of business, with visions of a aavoiy dinner running through his mind, placed it in a rear room for safe keeping ontU dinner time. He bad scarcely got down to bntineu befpre tbe bold Turk espied I daylight anS a dhaiioe for escape. So Holiday Excnralon Tickets: In pursuance of the usual custom the Pennsylvania Bailroad Company announces that Christmas and New year excursion tickets will be sold between all principal .stations on its system at two cents per mild, except between Philadelphia and New York and certain other stations on tbe United Bailroada of New Jersey Division, where the regnlsr excursion rate and limit will fprevail. Tbe tiokeU will be Hold December 24tb, 1800, to January Ist, 1S91, valid for return passage until January 5ih, 1891, inolnaive. A Misplaced Period. The people who Im^ine that advertisements are not read should have been in a oeigbbsring town tbe other day. A printer in 8, newspaper office got a period in the wrong place iu the figures giving the price of a special sale of sealskin saognes. Next day it looked aa though there waa a eamp-meeting in front of tbe atora where the cheap sacques were thought to be for sale, OrcnniiiaK the Alliance. Tbe Farmers' Alliance orsze baa struck Lycoming county and tbe work of organ izing baa.begun in several townships; So fsr as can be learned tbe epidemic has not reached Clinton oounty and a prominent gratiger stated yesterday that he did not tbiuk there would be any Alliance formed in this oounty.       .        ' He Ha, Not Boon Found. The man Graham who is missing frojto Cleirfisld has not been found alttaongh diligent search hits been made in tbe woods for him. It is feared that be is dead and now lies under the ioow. Banks Closed.. The Firat National Bank and the State Bank are closed this afternoon during the time of the funeral of the late T. C. Kiutzlng. HBWS   AND IfOTKS, Forty representatives of leadiug cigar manufaoturiuic firms of New York and Philadelphia met Tuesday in New York aud resolved, in view of the increased cost of production, to increase their prices on aad after Jaauarr 1st. A despatch from Kacsaa City saya that nearly all the low class of negroes living along the levee streets in that city have been seized with a craze similar to the Messiah superfctition. They are being led by a vodoo doctor from Dakota. At Holyoke, Massachusetts, Tuesday, a coal train standing on a side track broke iu two and the rear oar ran down the track and plunged into tbe canal, carrying Thomas Carrol and Martin Daly, who were shoveling coal, with it. Both were drowned. Just before tbe closing of ao art exhibition in Omaha, Nebraska, on Monday night, C. J. WarbingtOD struck with a chair picture by Boogereau, and tore two large tents in It. Ba claimed to have noted from religious motives. The picture was valued at �18,000. Warbington was arrested. The Morris Canal and Banking Company Tuesday placed on record in Belvi-dere. New Jersey, a mortgaee for tSOO,-000 to the Provident Life and Trust Company, of Philadelphia, dated September 15th, 1890. The old mortgage for il,000-000 was caneelled. This shows a payment of $500,000 on tbe principal. The Cbioago City Council has passed an ordinance granting a right of way on all streeu to a fuel eas company, that is to charge not over 60 cents per 1000 feet for natural gas or 50 cents for the manufactured article, with a rebate of 10 cents per 1000 feet for prompt payment. Tbe company is to pay five per oeut. of its gross receipt* into the city treasury. Paul Boltz killed bis father in Chicago on Monday night. When questioned the next, day the boy said: "I did it because he starved me. I woik in a picture irama factory and earn iO a week, but my father took it from me and did not give me enough to eat. He was a cabinet maker. Be did not earn much more than I do, and spent most of bis money on women." An old couple named Higgins left Char-lotuiown. Prince Edward Island, during a snow storm Friday night last, and got stuck with their team in a snow bank. When found on Sunday Mrs. Iliggin'a legs were frozen solid to the knees, and abe died shortly after. Higgin'a hands and feet were frozen stiff, and have been amputated. He has been delirious ever �inoe. Tbe preliminary hearing of Attorney General Pope, of South Carolina, charged with violating the Stats CooctitntiOD in discharging an engrossing clerk because he voted for Haskell for Governor, took place Tuesday before Justice Youmans, in Columbia, Tbe Jnatiea dlsmiased tbe oast on tbe jfround that the aection did not apply to State offiof rs.

The euiolM* ilere opened by toe Inati tatosicsiagwv*^) aeleotioiw. "The opening ai^reu waa made by Prof. CoagbllD ob'"Ho^ to uke Number One in the PraotlM ol Taachiog." Teacbera deserve ' encouragement in their work. They ahoold be'pvd th propoition to their ability to do goodlwotk. This would create a spirit of tttttllenoe, and secure to tbe patrons man^me* the value received for this extra exlenditora. Next to tha encouragement Igniting from fait oom-penaation, ii tha(|rhioh we feel on noticing that progrees|n theory and praotiae of teaching hai bfsn recogoiaad andoom-mended. He fa^ a very sensible talk filled with praatisal hint* about oleanli-neas, ventilation,%ood order, intelligent work, ittfiaeoee eid otberi. Kuaia and Soa^lna waa aung, fallowed by Prof. Meloy who spoke on "The Human Body." HiMpeaiag remarks were made on the valaaof any science in tha school enrriculoau He told how by easy lesson to make tbe elements of Koology and biology faaUiar suhjecta to pupils, and lead up to tbateaobing of physiology; and that in tha complexity of the human body lies its sa{pridrity over all other bodisa both auQnal and physical. He made many nsefal anggestlona valuable in teaching this important branch of study. Prof. Eldon was to have continued his talk of yeatordsy ob ''The Halation of Geology, Astronomy and Qeogtapfay to Each Other." He j^saded.yasterday for a mora general knowledgsof astrooomyas It broad ens the magnaniiilty, and further remarka on this topic would have been appreciated. He gave inatead a talk to the teachers upon their mistakes ia grammar and pronunciation ; giving examples of the most frequent ones. He iirged improvement io this direction. Adjournment waa then made. WEDSESDAY BVESIIfO. Notwithstanding tbe very disagreeable weather the Opera House was filled to hear "John and Jonathan," by Bobert Nourse. He came to ua highly recommended by persons whose names bear weight with them and he did not disappoint the expectations created. He is a wise and witty talker and possesses much facial expression. He contrasted the individual, the race, commerce, laws, language, habits and customs, not forgetting tbe good and evil which these two greatest nations of the world owe to each other. It was enlivened with Qasbes of wit and humorous anecdotes. TnURSDAt UORNISO. Tbe informal session of tbe teachers was again done away with. Th* opening exercises consisted in the Institute singing "My Beautiful Home" and prayer by Rev. Gerhard. Prof. Cousblin now addressed ths Institute on the important topic of "Beading." The faculty of ths mind that is most actively engaged in learning to read is memory. As a matter of teaobieg a distinction should be made between reading and learning to read. Learning to read is primafily a study of symbols. W* proceed from tbe known to the unknown. Tbe child knows a certain oral vocabulary. The related unknown lathe written vocabulary. An object ieeson in reading useful to Primary teachers followed. We were now favored with a duet, entitled, "Lullaby," by Hisses Lulu Alia-bach and Hannah Mingle. Prof. O. W. Kitchen talked on "Percentage." Hiss Fee enlivened na at this point by singing "The Song I'll Ne'er Forget" in her charming manner, and responded to the applause which followed by tinging "liiatan to My Tale of Woe." Beoess was given at this point. These recesses are much enjoyed and are one of tha pltasant featotsa of the Institute. Immediately after recess Prof. L. A. Beardsley took up the subject of "Verb Forms" and gave a class drill upon it. He brought a number of young ladies snd gentlemen with him chosen from his class at tbe Normal. He illustrated bis method at length. Prof. Dick made a few preliminary remarka that created a ripple of laughter and then launched forth on a talk about "A Few Things a Good Teacher Should Know." You must seize every avsllable opportunity to teach moral character, manual training, drawing forms of nature and patriotism. Yon will be the better teacher just as you are familiar with re. lated subjects. You most know tbe phi! mind are cultivated by each study. Hake your tescbiog coacrete and look on tbe practical side. It i� ttaoiougbly easeothil to know child nature. Yun muat know different temperaments. A good teacher mntt have a proper conception of ednov tion and possess tact and love. He com-Bands close attention and interest from all present. Snpt. Brungard made a few atatement, and after Binging adjourned until 1:30 p. m. NOTES. II thoe* wbo annually oomplain of the lack of gallantry and nnsoeiability among the sterner sex would make practical use ot Prof. Dick's instructions on beeomiog a good questioner, they ieould find eoala of fire heaped upon their heads. Conatant nee of note books is frequently urged. One of tbe best filled ones con taiBS Tsry natural pencil sketcbes of the iDstrnetors. Tbe brightness of tbe ana was reflected upon tbe faces of the teachers this aaorn-ing sod made a ooticeabla difference io the audience. The Two TbUves, To what a wonderful science-boainess has been brought in the last tew yeara. Think of a great theatrical magnate like Col. Soellweiaoer, managing five attrao-tions at one and the aame time-three in Europe and two in America. This is only possible through ths aid of those time-aaving inventions the telegraph and telephone. We are assured that the Colonel has poaitlvely signed a oontrsct with Hao-agar Farnswortb to play our town for one night, Saturday, Deaember 27th, presenting his univeraal success, "The Two Thieves," with tbe great English oomed Ian, Ur. John J. Kennedy, supported by a msguifioeot company of aingers and dancers. Nothing hut a judicial outlay of a vast capital and a thorough knowledge of what the amnaenent-Ioving public require, Bsake such ao aggregation as Col. Snellweisner's "Two Thievsa" a possibil-ity, a campsny comprising the Unest eomedlans, singers and dancers^ together with the most startling noveltiee ot two hemiepheree. And doa'c forget that Hansger Farnswortb wae smart enough to eacure the show for one night, Saturday Dec. 27. Grime** CUar Door. On to morrow evening, December 19tb, the lovers of good music, bright, sparkling specialties, and brisk, fast fos, will be made happy at the Opera House, for on that date James B. Mackie, the accomplished comedian, will present bis new, bright masical burlesque, by Mr, Tbomaa Addison, entitled "Grimes' Cellar Door," bich is said to be one continuous laugh from beginning to end. Maskie is favorably remembered tor hi. Inimitable work as "Grimsey, Me Boy" in "A Bunch of Keys," but aa strong a hit as he was in that piece, his work in his new pstt, Billy Grimes," who owns the Cellar Door, is said to totally eclipse all of his tormer efforts, and la a continuation of fun, frolic, good nature, laughable complications, and original songs and danoes. Mackie is smart enoogb to see the necessity of a thoroughly good company all around and has engaged one of the strongest musical comedy companies in America, regardless of coat, and no doubt his liberality In this respect will ba rewarded nightly by large and enthnaiastic audiences.  Don't forget the date. Tbe BtaU Vlnancaa. The State Sosncial officers.

However, the Inclemency of Uiewestber did not lessen tbe expenses any. Can yon draw ths inference? Come aut to-night, and do not depend 00 some one else to fill tbe seat for yon.
