Warren Ledger (Newspaper) - August 15, 1884, Warren, Pennsylvania WARREN LEDGER. THIRTY-FIFTH YEAR. WARREN, PA, AUGUST 15, 1884 NUMBER Furry-Two CORYDON. A KEW8T AND 13TBBESTIXG LITTXR FBOM S. B. M. The time was when it was considered disgraceful not to have a realizing sense of the difference between meum et tunm, "Whether it had reference to property, re- ligion, or politics, but O, Editor, what is a poor woman to do now in this distracting state of affairs If one is a good democrat and takes up the Svn, that aforetime staunch supporter e regular nominees of a party, dear to hearts, how is one horrified to find, fault finding, at least, insiuua- covert sneers, against the one, the beloved party hopes to elect President next November. Or, if on the other hand, one happens to be the wife of a Radical with sympathies strongly in favor of a protective ardent admirer of the ''plumed and takes up the Times, expecting as of yore to be confirmed in the faith, what can express the consternation and disgust with which we read its edi- torials (loo able by far) denouncing toth. Truly we have fallen on evil ways when a beloved cause is wounded in the house of its friends. Corydon is active in business matters. The pulp mill with a full set of hands is running day and night, turning out an ex- cellent article of wood pulp with great rapidity. Sundeiiin's handle factory is also doing a large and increasing business. Morrison Son's have turned their at- tention lately to lath, pickets, and shingles. Dalrymple is running his saw mill with a full gang. Messrs. Crooks, Williams, and Whit- comb, keep their spoke mill cutting to its full capacity. The Corydon House, under the efficient management of E> Morse and lady, has been repainted, calsomined, papered, and generally improved in appearance. A clean house, a good table, moderate charg- es, and faithful attendance. What more can be desired in a country hotel beside the puie air and exquisite scenery Corydon affords? Dr. Baket's new house on Bradford Street is ready for the painter. It is, I am told, to be painted white witn greea shut- ters, and when finished it will be handsome enough even for the pretty little lady for whose occupancy it is designed. The cornice of the house is especially pretty, and the first of its kind ever seen heie. E. J. Morrison is well pleased with his house, at now being painted a greenish yellow, with maroon trimmings, and black sash, and is especially proud of the fine views from its bay window. Ira Williams is also engaged in erecting a new residence on a pretty rise, back from the river, one part to be 16x24, the other 16x26, and a wing whose size I have for- gotten. While at Mr. J. William's a short time ago, he showed me a fine white lamb, with a large round brown spot on its back, and told me the following singular story con- cerning it: When it was but two days old, the flock was let out of the pasture and went up the hill into the woods. When they came back at night the spotted lamb was missing, and the ewe was bleating at every step. Mr. W. tried to find the lamb, but could not, and concluded the foxes had caught the weak little creature. The flock were not again let out of the pasture. Six weeks after, the men went out Oil a hill aad heard something bleating, supposing it to to be a young fawn they followed the sound, and found the lost spotted lamb, fat, and considerably larger than when last seen, and Mr. W. is still wondering what the lamb lived on, those six weeks, as no one else keeps sneep in the neighborhood, and it could have had no foster mother, unless a doe bereft of its fawn had taken care of it, which, 'to say the least, is unlikely. Apropos of deer, George L. Tome, of this place has owned a pair for some time, and this summer a fawn was born in captivity. It is a beautiful little creature, and seems well content with its lot. Mr. W. McCollister recently brought a bride to cheer his widowed home. Mrs. George and Miss Nettie Wilcox, of Bradford, are guests at their uncle's, Mr. H. Wilcox. George Case, of Gerry, N. Y., is visiting his brother, F. R. Case. Mrs. D. Root is visiting at Jamestown, and the Lake, and the C. L. S. C. mourn the loss of their teacher in English History. The fumes of petroleum seem in some way to be diffused through the air here of late, and oil men in blue broadcloth are flying round leasing land. I am happy to say that J. Brown, so seriously injured in a mowing machine here three weeks ago, and whose condition caused such grave apprehension on the part of his friends, is d oidetllv m tier, and hopes soon to be able to be lemoved to his home. The accident occurred near his father-in-law's, and he was taken there -where he still remains. The ladies senting society hope to hold a fair the 38th and 29tl> of this month at Hie school house hall, where anything from sewing machine aud carpet, to a ciazy quilt, lace pillow shams, tidies, etc., etc., things useful, beautiful and artistic will be sold, and the proceeds applied to help bAiild a church. A pressing invitation is given to all readers of the LEDGBB, to come, admire, and purchase. a, B. M. A FKW NEW THINGS DISCOVERED AKD PBO- IN PBIST. Mrs. Plum Mead aad Mrs. C. H. Gregory, are visiting relatives in Brock- port, N. Y. Mrs. Leroy Hunter, of Grand Valley, is visiting friends here. The Billiard room recently completed by Will is a dandy. We are quite cityfied now, two busses each train. A. P. Garaeld is reported better. He became warmed up running to a fire in Jamestown, circus day, and then drank too much iced lemonade. He was taken soon after with chills, and lor a time his life was despaired of. The skating rink here, under the skillful management of C. A. McKmney, is doing a good business. It is run on first class principles, and nothing bordering on rowdy- ism is allowed. There is music every Tuesday and Saturday evenings, and it is open every night, and has many patrons. The select party booked for this place on the evening of Aug. 29th, promises to be a success. We have started an organization to be Known as the Cleveland and Heudricks democratic club, of Youngsville, Irvineton and vicinity. Officers of the club are C. A. Cornen, President Rick Donovan, Vice President Doc A. C. Axtell, Second Vice President; W. F. Siggins, Secretary; Ellery McKinney, Assistant Secretary; Arthur McKinney, Treasurer J. W. Hughs and O. V. Cotter, Captains, and all neces- sary committees. The club started off with about a hundred names with bright pros- pects and great enthusiasm. On taking the chair President Cornen after thanking the club for the honor, went off on an eloquent glowing speech, on the prospects and unity of the party all over country as well as a firm belief in the election of our own Congressman Scott, and our county ticket. Mr. Cornen was followed by the Vice Presidents and Secretary, who all seemed to be ba nguiu of success. The reg- ular meetings of this club will be held in J. B Philip's Hall every Friday evening at 8 o'clock P. M. Speakers from abroad w be engaged and every body is invited to at- tend aud help push on tue good work. Oui motto is the greatest good to the greatest number. Honest government, and turn the rascals out. NORTH WARREN. Several families in trouble through the, influence of beer. Tue continued crowding of our hide walks by the insane, is unsafe, unlawful, and a common nuisance. The location, cost, delay, and final abandonment for the present of the comple- tion of the big asylum barn, is a lasting monument of extreme folly. Frank McCoy, so long depot agent, and one of the best fellows of the place, is here on a visit with his wife and children. Henry Hastings, another old citizen, is with them. Lima, Ohio, has been their place of resi- dence for the last three years. Miss Susie Hazeltine, sister of Mrs. McCoy, expects to go home with them. A most agreeable surprise to the family of Mr. and Mrs.' Philip Lukins, now re- siding near the line of the State, a few miles above Russell, took place a few evenings since. The occasion being the 25th anni- versary of their marriage. As evidence of good feeling, the Kiantone friends, number- ing nearly fifty, were present, including their worthy pastor, the Eev.-----Beach and wife. Imnaagine the surprise at the presentation by the pastor, in behalf of the Kiantone friends, of a beautiful and costly china tea set. Gratitude, tears, and thanks, found vient in a flow of words, pleasingly effective, and characteristic of the man. There were many excellent presents made by Warren friends. The very social evening closed with a bountiful repast, representing somewhat, an old fashioned basket picnic. At this place there is an effort being made to find the outlet to the slusli oil field, or the pool, by which this territory is supplied. Two wells are being drilled and there is another rig up. The first well is located about one mile northwest of North Wairen, and is on the .Owens farm. This well is being drilled by Thomas Campbell, and is about deep at this writing. The next well is on the Amann farm, is about three quarters of a mile west of the Campbell. This well ought to be 500 feet deep. On still further, about two and one-half miles northwest of the Campbell well, the re is a rig going up. This well is on the Fletcher farm, and it will be started at once. The trade will do well to keep a watchful eye on these wells, as there is no telling in. these later days, what may be the outcome of the ventures. STUB PBN.

"OLD GENERAL W. B. HAZEN, CHIEf OF THE SIGNAL 8BBV10E. ____ j "Old Probabilities" ia at all times' and seasons, a "Man of the Hour." The head quarters of the Signal Service, better known by the humorous name quoted, are in Washington, where those conclusions are reached as to what the weathet is likely to be in all paits of the United, States, which are read with universal interest, morning and evening, in the local newspaper. While substantial service is given the mariner, the merchant engaged in'foreign enter- prises and the farmer by the work of the Signal Department, all classes people in- tent on either business or pleasure, have reasons why its conclusions are among the leading points of domestic -inquiry every day. The matter in which universal curiosity is gratified is very simple and pleasing to know. There aie about 180 stations which report to Washington, all those as first class t'iree times a day, namely, A. M., and eleven p. M. Observations are made at all these stations as to the condition of the weather, and scientific notes taken by means of the barometer, regarding the pressure of the atmosphere, the tempera- ture as indicated by the thermometer, the degree of moisture of the atmosph -re as read on the register of the hygrometer, and the force and velocity of the wind as> measured by the anemometer Repoits ot these observations, and at some stations ot the electrical condition of the atmosphere, are telegraphed to Washington, where on a large map made for the puipose, the infor- mation so gathered is collated, thereby enabling "Old Prob." to make those fore- castings as to the weather here, there and everywhere which have given him his well- earned reputation. The building whcie this work is done is certainly one of the most useful in Washington. It belongs to the War Department and contains the various offices of the Chief Signal Officer, General William B. Hazen, who is the second incumbent. He suc- ceeded General Myer, the first Chief Signal Officer, December 8, 1880. The salary of his position is a year. Gen. Hazen was bom in Vermont, in 1830. In 1851 he entered the Military Academy at West Point. Four years afterwards he graduated at this institution and was made Brevet Second Lieutenant of the Fourth Infantry. Engaged during the next few years in fignt- ing the Indians of Texas, in 1859 he was made First Lieutenant by bievit. At the outbreak of the civil war, he acted as Col- onel of the Forty-first Ohio Volunteers. In 1861 he was made Brigadier-General of Volunteers and Major by brevitin the regu- lar army in 1868. a reward for his courage in the battle Chickmauga. Successive pro- motions for distinguished services in several great battles led up to his being made, in March, 1865, a Major-General; and one month later ho was commissioned Major- General of Volunteers, to rank from Decem- ber 13, 1864. He was mustered out of the Volunteer Service in 1866. and subsequent- ly served as Colonel of the Thirty-eighth regular Infantry, and of the Sixth Infantry since 1869. During the Fzunco-German war he was employed in studying the edu- cation and characteristics of the French and German troops, and, upon his return to the United States, embodied his observations on these subjects in a book entitled -'School and Army of Fiance and Germany." In 1877 he was appointed military attache to the United States legation at Vienna, and three years later, to his present position. He is a married man and the father of a family. Ion Can Have It.

There is nothing of a positively new nature regarding this garden of oil to be chronicled. Of course new wells are con- stantly coming in, and the most of them are good producers. But this ia not news, for every one knew they would come in good being located on clearly de- fined territory. There are a few wild cat wells now drilling which may, should they pr ugh the grates to him. I wish tuither to state the condition Mr. Humes was in when I arrested him, and the facts as stated by him at tke meeting will bear me out in the statement. He was to best of my belief, in a condition bordering on delirium as soon as I put him in his cell he lay down on the floor like a hog, and was soon sleeping. I positively deny the accusations so meanly made against me and say publicly and above board that I have not drank a pint of whiskey in ten years, and then for medicinal purposes, and I think it is unmanly and unjust in any one to thus publicly and falsely accuse one of such things. Mr. Humes is said to have reformed, this may be so as far as drink is concerned (which I doubt) but so far as his Heing qualification? are concerned they seem to remain intact. J. C. UTTER, Chief Police. Warren, Pa., Aug. 14, 1884. OVER THE FALLS. About 6 o'clock Monday night, as two men were sitting talking, near the waters edge, on the bend near the Third Sister Island, they were startled by the appearance of a half naked man, who came out of the bushes from behind them. He walked up to the men, and handed one of them a hunting case watch, and the other about twenty cents in pennies. The stranger said nothing, but turned and ran over some rocks, toward the cataract, lit stood for a moment on the outer rock, and said some- thing to the on lookers, which they cou'.J not understand, and then plunged iuto the angry flood. He was watched as he was carried madly along by the mailing torrent, until he disappeared over Horse Shoe On search being made iii the busbcs, a hat, coat, vest, trousers, and shoes and stockings were found in a pile. The only clue to the man's identity was found by a bill head in one of his pockets, it was dated New York, Nov. 26th, 1893, and stated that Mr. Woodke had bought of J. Lew- kowtz a silver watch for A Uwjer's oppliion of Interest to ail. J. A. Tawney, Esq., a Icadin? attorney of Winona, Minn writes: "After using it for more then three years, I take great pleasure in stating that I regard Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, as the best remedy in the world for Coughs aad Colds. It has never failed to cure severe colds I have had, and invariably relives the pain in the chest." Trial Bottle of s cure for all Throatnnd T auv be iwlFree at A k'sDrug size, if W. ''AFTER MANY .DAYS." The Temperance meetings have come to a close. The future will show more con- clusively than anything else as to the good results wrought. At present everything looks bright and cheerful, and many people have signed the pledge. Let us hope they may keep it, and be ben untied by so doing. The seed sown has been good, and it is hoped may not be before coming to maturity, Ly any of the storms, droughts, or immoral cyclones, which will daily arise. We arc sorry to have to speak disparagingly of any of the doings of iliese tumpcruuce meetings, bu t cannot help criticising the woida spoken by Mr. Humes, on FuJay evening last, in- refeicncu to his hist drunk. He openly accused John Utter ot watching him pur- chase a bottle of whisky, then arrest him before he had pulled the cork, lock 'him up, aud take the whisky from him and drink it. Mr. Humes iu his speech admitted that he was s iffering from "snakes" or "ani- mals" us he called them, at the time of his HI rest, aud virtually admitted that he was not in a proper condition to notice any- thing intelligently. Now, Mr. Utter posi- tively denies the accusation, and we are forced to believe the denial, coming as it. does from a man we know to be a sober maa at all times, rather than the accusa- tion which comes from the lips of one, who only a short time since, was a confirmed drunkard, and who is again liable at any day to be back in his cups. Mr. McCon- nell alluded to the same matter on Monday evening, in a mean way, and in our opinion did wrong, for he cc uld easily have found out that it was not right to do this by making an investigation as to the truth of the accusation. McConnell is smart, and has been an instrument in the hands of the ladies for much apparent good, but at tbe same time he should not be too hasty in drawing conclusions. Right is, right, and truth should at all times prevail, and any public meeting, no matter of what nature, should not be used to traduce the character of an innocent man. THE HEIGHT OF MKASTNE3S. Sunday night while engaged at the allur- ing game of draw poker at a room kept for that purpose in our town, a fellow by the name of Del! Dollivar lost a small sumof money, this insensed him to have the keeper of the room arrested, which was done and said room keeper put under bail to appear at the September term of court. Dollivar was held in also for his appearance. Dollivar is said to be about as bad as they make them, and is considered a professional gambler, and has been engaged in far meaner business than ever this, and while we feel in no way dis posed to palliate the offence of keeping a gambling house, we cannot however re- frain from soying that Mr. Brower the keeper is far more a man than is Dollivar the informer. If some citizen becoming in diguant at the thought that a house was being kept in the community, whereby his boy was liable to be rumed, or if some wife, fearing that her husband would lose his friends, reputation and situation by her husbands visit to this places, had instiga- ted the proceedings, then we would say God speed, but when a man who makes Ms living by gambling iu, and of Ms own free will begins piny, and by that play looses, and because he is mad about it has the keeper of the room arrested, he ought to be tarred and leathered and road on a rail. CARD OP THANKS. We desire hereby to express our heartfelt gratitude to those of our friends and neigh- bors who so kindly sympathized witb, and assisted iu our recent bereavement. May the years be many ere they arc called to pass through the same ordeal of affliction. But when afflictions came, as coma they must to all, may Kind hearts and willing hands minister as readily to their necessities as they did to ours. We would also ex- press onr sincere thanks the many beau- tiful and appropriate floral tributes. May the lives and hearts of the donors be as pure and spotless as is the language o! the flowera ith hicli they decked our darling. Mr. and Mrs. GEORGE M. WKLLS. TUB Atlantic coast experienced and earth- quake shock last Sunday afternoon, and the New York papers are filled with inci- dents of the fiiake-np. The people were greatly fiightened. and they ran from their houses hatless and bootless into the streets. Tables and chairs wrre strewn over floors of the dwrlhn-s, and clocks were' stopped. A loud ruubling noise seemed to come from the ground, pr'ur -s in the- penitentiary on Island were- frightened. Tba depots on the elevated railroads were shaken, and horses were with difficulty prevented from running r.way. The shock was noticeable as far wwt as Cleveland, Ohio, and is said to be a Cleveland boom, and nobody hurt. The- shock was distinct iu Philadelphia and 'Harriiburjr.
