Among till the engineers on Titer wad there Wras no one More popular with his associates and fellow labourers and none stood higher in the emulation of the officers of the Road. It w As mainly due to his efforts during the great strike that no serious uprising occurred Here As it Wras his Cool judicious counsels at the various meetings held by excited brakeman and freight conductors that on several different occasions stilled the troubled Waters. It was not Only in this locality that his efforts were Felt but along up the line to and he was at the head of the committee that left Here to counsel with the strikers of Dewitt the result of which meeting was that the men Laid Down their arms and resumed work.

What a picture was that to be photographed upon a mothers vision the last time she Ever saw her Little girl she lived Many years after the Saddest woman in Wyoming Valley. Yet she never ceased to Hope and believe that she w Ould one Day hear of her daughter. Alas she went to her grave and no Light came from the dark forests where she saw the indians disappear with the idol of her heart. She died but charged her sons now grown to manhood that they continue the search. They did. They sent messengers to All the Indian tribes in the West and in Canada in Western new York and along the Ohio but not a Trace of Frances could he found. They offered Large rewards and made personal visits to Many tribes and were often on false trails but no Frances Flo chem gladdened their eyes they believed her alive for they argued that bad the indians wanted to kill her they would not have carried her away. Years rolled on until the kidnapped child would have been a mature woman of forty it living when the Brothers and sister gave up the search deeming that the mystery could never be cleared up on Earth yet still hoping against Hope. The family became Rich but the pleasure of wealth could not blot from their minds the memory of their absent sister. A half a Century rolled by and no tidings of the lost Frances.

Ewing of Peru ind., was travelling about fifty Miles Southwest of fort Wayne when he stopped at an Indian wigwam for the night. This was in 1835. He spoke the Indian language. The Indian family seemed to be Well off having horses and animal skins in abundance. He noticed that the hair of the woman is Light and that her wrists Are almost White. She told him that she w As a White child and had been carried away by indians when a Little girl she could remember that her fathers name was Slocum and that he lived by a Broad River but could not remember what her Given name was or anything further. She waa now old and contented had a Good husband and was Happy As an Indian. Or. Ewing upon getting Home told his Mother the Story and she urged him to Send it to some Pennsylvania paper As she thought it must be a Pennsylvania family. Accordingly Ewing wrote All the particulars to the Post killed and she next married a Miami Indian a chief. Two children were born unto her both living and the parents of Indian children. Every Effort was made by the Slocum to get their sister to return to the grave of her Mother and Home of her Kindred but she would not. They promised her wealth beyond what she had horses and lands but it was no use. A i Ain an Indian a she said a a and love my people and could not be Happy with the they left her in her Cabin and returned to Wilkes Barre.

In this mysterious and As they believed providential Way they got tidings from their dear sister who had been lost More than half a Century. They immediately 1838 started for Indiana following the us cations indicated in Ewing a letter. They had but a shadow7 of doubt but what this Indian woman was really their Long lost sister. You can judge of their emotions As they Drew near the wigwam of their Indian sister. There were four in the party two Brothers a sister and an interpreter. The indians they sought lived nine Miles from the nearest White settlement. They talked of the possibility that this might not be the Long lost one. A a but i shall know her a said the civilized sister a because she lost the Nail of her first Finger when four years the rest of the Story we quote from a description written at the time a they reach the Cabin go in and find an Indian woman haying the appearance of being seventy years old. She is painted and jewelled Aud looks like an Indian in All respects nothing but her hair and the finer texture of her skin would indicate but what she was a born Indian. They open conversation through the interpreter Aud immediately All doubt that this is the Long lost sister is solved. It is she. The scar upon Hei Finger is there. She remembers that her name was Slocum. They ask her what her Christian name was. She could not remember. Was it Frances she smiled and said a yes it was the first time she had heard it in Over fifty years. Here then were they met two Broth and two Sisters. But what a contrast the Brothers walked the Cabin unable to control their emotions. The eldest sister wept but the Indian Sisty sat motionless and passionless As indifferent As a Spectator. There was no Fine chord in her bosom to be touched. She had been an Indian too Long. What a picture for a Painter Here were the children of civilization respectable temperate a wealthy Able to overcome mountains to recover their sister she whom a they had sought so Long through the North american of olderness and finally Given up for lost. Yet there she sat As motionless As a Stone a veritable Chile of the Forest not Able to speak a word of in Quot ii so or Tell the Day or the week of her age. Through the interpreter she told them something Quot of her history. She was stolen by the delawares and remained with them until grown when she married a Young Brave. He was the Moffet Register or a a Bell punch a As it has been improperly called is now7 a fixed fact and on monday it will go into operation in every Saloon in this City where alcoholic and malt liquors Are sold. It was stubbornly fought from its very inception first in the legislature and afterwards in the courts its opponents the liquor dealers receiving a final quietus to Day in the dissolution of an injunction obtained against the Register Iii the United states circuit court. The Law under w hich it operates provides for a tax of two and a halt cents on All alcoholic beverages drank and half a cent on All Matt beverages sold. This will necessitate an increase of the Price of whisky drinks from ten to fifteen cents and a probable diminution of the size of lager Beer glasses to prevent the loss of the half cent to the Saloon keeper. It is estimated that in this City alone the amount of Revenue to be derived from it will exceed $175,000 per annul and if anything like the expectations of the projectors of the Register Are realized it will bring the state Treasury $750,000 a year. The Register is a Plain apparatus about the size of a Cigar Box w Ith a Gas meter dial on the front and a Crank in the rear. Inside is the necessary machinery to Register each drink and a Quot Ong which with each revolution of the Crank gives notice of the fact. There is no punch about it that idea having originated from its similarity with the Cor Beil punch. The barkeeper and liquor dealers arc greatly excited at the Success of the Register. They arc violently opposed to it. And threaten to defeat every candidate for the legislature who will not vote for the repeal of the Law. Its operation comes in at a very opportune moment when there is not a Oia yet Wal 11 p. To Der Sextro Jessup.
