With great exertions they fled to tbe roof and were saved. Tbey barely escaped with their lives, Tbe personal property of tbe relatives wan all lost, not even saving their garments, iirs. Parsons and daughter Mary saved some ot their garments. Tbe friends aad relatives ou her safe return, gave her an ovation for her safe deliverance. Cold WmTQA Are predicted with reliable accuracy, and people liable to the paias and aches of rheumatism dread every change to damp or stormy weather. Although Hood's Sarsaparilla is not claimed to be a positive apeoiflo for rheumatism, tbe remarkable onres it bas effected show that it may be taken for this complaint with reasonable certainty of benefit. Ita action in neutralizing the acidity of tbe blood, which is the cause of rheumatiam, constitutes the seciet of tbe success of Hood's Sarsaparilla. If jou suffer from rheumatism, give Hood's Sarsaparilla a fair trial; it will do you good. To The Ch�rU�ble. Wa knovr that there were charitable people in Look Haven last year, and for many years before, because when we askad them to assist us in relieving the poor and destitute, they came to our assistance. We beUeve that many of these people are �till here, and when we tell them� that in our investigations we have fonnd muck destitution and want, suob as can be relieved by tbeir giving what they have in their own home, and do not use, they will respond with the promptness and generosity tbey have heretofore exer-oised. We can use to good advantage any clothing, bats, capa and shoes that you may oboose to send. An overcoat for a boy about 15 years old is very much wanted, but if you have not �uob a one, ft need not prevent you from ending just euob as you have. What you can, send to the rooms of the W. C. T. U. over Hilton's drugstore, from 1 to 5 p. m., Tuesday afternoon, December 16th. SECRETARY W. C.T. U. JuDGB Woods' decision at Indianapolis that a bankrupt corporation cannot make its directors or executive officers preferred orsdltorp, strikes everybody as very sound sense as soon aa it is understood. Why sboalda't it strike Congress as v�ry sonud BSDse to pass the Bankruptcy bill and prevent aoy;bankrupt concern from cbeatiag anybody by preferring certain creditors? --, � - - . Thsre seems to be an inolioation at Wacbiogton to call a bait on farthtr peo- ioo ItgfsU&iOB for the present. District Altorney flraham, of I'blladtrlphia, Proceeds in the rroeecution of Work, SIcFarlane, PMtter and DunKaa-Thi Ffrit Xamed Arrested and Committed Iu Default or SSO.OOO Itaii. PuiLADEU'liiA, Dec. 12-Geo'-ge F. Work, who was the master mind of the Work-MacFarlaue-Pfeiffer-Dungan syndicate, whieh it is alleged wrecked the Bank of America and tbe American Life Insur-auce Company, was arrested on Thursday night on a warrant aworn out by District Attorney Qrabam, and at a hearing today, in default of $20,000 bail, was committed to'Moyamensing prison. The District Attorney a?8o swore out warrants for the arrest of Stato Sanator Jt,hn J. Mac-Fariane, Louis E. Pfeiffor and James S. Dungan, but Work was the only one that tbe constable could find. The warrant on which Work was arrtst-ed charges him with rehypothecating tbo stock, aad with couspiraoy to cheat and defraud tbe depositors and others interested in the Bunk of America. The warrant also charges bim with similar offences in connection with tbe American Life Insurance Company. THE QUARTETTS OE WRECKERS. Senator MacPArlane was President of tbe Amerioan Life Insurance Company, and Vice President of tbe Bank of America. Louis Pfoiffer was President of tbo bank and Vice President of tbe Insurance Company, and Duogao wa? cashier of tbo bank. Work held the position of assistant or advisor to ilacFarlane. Tbe peculiar and disastrous maihods of tho (itiartv-tEo reached a climax la&t spring, and when , tbey could no longer be concealed the bank suspended, and tbe losuranca Company assigned a few days later. Hundreds of people lost their all by the ruin of the two institutions, and when the full truth of the manner iu which the crash was brought about was learned, the greatest Indignation was expresfied again.s:, the officers of the companies. MacFailaue disappeared and has never returned. Pfeiffer and Dungan were arrested, charged with receiving deposits after rhay knew the bank was iosolveut, and an iudict-ment on that charge is still peuding against them. Sinoo that time an expert accountant baa been at work eiaminia;^ the books, and it was upon the discoveries made by him that the District Attorney issued warrants for the arrest of the quartette of bank wreckers. WHAT MR. GKAHAM SAY3. Id sppakiog of the matter to-night District Attorney Graham said that the losfins by tbe operations of tbe syndicate would amount to hundred of thousands of dollars, but the exact amount is not yet known. He �aid that W;)rk was undoubtedly the movingspiritof the wholescbems. As an iostanco of the tnsuner iu which the two concerns played iuto eiicb others hands, Graham said that the bank would pay ten $1,000 bonds for 55,000, and then would borrow the full amount of their par value from the insurance company. This operation could not be conducted in the name of Iho two companies, to one of the syndicate would borrow the money in his name. They hIko quoted Ihn bank as having declared dividends ou full paid in capital, and when it was iu nocon dition to do so, and by that means kRpt the stock at par when it was practic;U!y valueless, and realized on it. WOKK SAV3 HE IS ISNOCF.NT. George F. Work was seen after bin arrest, and said thut he was ioooocnt of the charges brought against bim. He said that be bad been interested iu the orgaui* zatlou of the bank, and in that way mec Senator MacFarlaue. Two years ago he withdrew from all connection with the bank, and only afterwards in the capacity o! an agent or trustee for Senator MacFarlaue. When asked what hb meant by an agent or trustee, he said that Senator MacFarlane bad made bim the agent for aevera! oompauies be was interested in. He was asked about the hypothecaliug of fiNjcJ:, and he said _that Senator M^cFar-tan�! mufct havo dune thijt. Altogether throughout the intervfdw Work �/jHnmed the position of a much injured and maligned man. brought a price which compares very fa-1 pT flCITirfl flip ^UV OPUnni 0 vorably with the cases we have mentioned. | OliUOlrHj UP IlUb ObllUULO "Years aco General Russell A. Alger, of Dc'troit, lately Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, was a youngster without a cent and with but one suit of elotbes. He wanted to attend school and went to a physician who lived in the village to ask for a chance to work for his board. The doctor did not need tbo services of a boy, but be was so much impressed with young Algeria aameatness that be took him into his family circle and sent him through school. Alger did no work except to take oare of the doctor's horse and or>e cow. 'But time has wrought great changes. Alger is now a milllonaite, while bis bon-efaolor ia an old man in straightened 6nan-cial circumstances- One by one his children hare died, until he and hia old wife have beeu left alone. All offers of assist-aticc by Gaoeral Alger have been refused, for the old man is as proud as Lucifer himself. In consequence Alger has been forced to bestow hif charities in many little roundabout ways so that their source could not ba guessed. Recently be visited bis old friend, determined to compel bis acceptance of more substantial aid than he bad been receiving. " *Why, Alger, you don't, owe me anything,' the old man said, 'and I won't accept anything.' " 'But I owe my education to you.' ** 'Bosh ! You owe that to yourself.' " 'But I caused you trouble and expense, for which I want to repay you.' The trouble needn't trouble you, and there wasn'c much expense to speak of; iu fact, the only expeuss that you caused me, so far as I can recollect, is the loss of a cow. Do you know, Alger, wheu yo� camo to liVe with me I had the best cow in these parts, and that your awkwardness completely spoiled her? Well, it did. Within three weeks you had made bor so skittish that no one could go near her, and I had to soil her for beef. "Well, then, I owe you for that oow don't I? And I'm going to pay you for her and will add a little interest for the as9 of tba money for about forty years.' *'After a long course of argument tbe old gfiutlemaa finally consented, very reluctantly, to accept pay for hia cow. And the prica paid for that ordinary grade oow i.s sufficient to support bor former owner in fair circumstances during the remainder of hia lifetime. She was a very oxpensive oow." To be Married Soon. Mr. Ellsworth K. Gerhard, of Altoona, a locomotive engineer on the Penu'a railroad, will bo married fit Ilutitiugdon next Wednesday to a lady of that city. Rev. G. W.

Gearhart, the well known insurance man received a letter of inquiry yesterday from a gentleman io another county regarding a store room. The gentleman in question wanted to rent a store room and open a store io this city.

DtiBLis, Dec. 13:-It coming to tbe knowledge of Mr. Leamy, who was appointed editor of United Ireland by Mr. Paroell, and other Parnellitos that an anti-Parnell edition of that paper would be Issued to-day from the office of the Nation (T. D. Sullivan's paper,) stops were taken to secure an injunction agaiutt the Aiifion's publisher. The Court granted the writ prayed for, restraining the publisher of tbe Nation frum issuing the edition in question. Notwithstanding tbe issuance of the writ, tbe forbidden edition made its appearance this morning. THE ANTJ PAKNELL EDITION. It oootaios an article written by Mr. Bodkin, who was acting editor of the paper during the absence in tbe United States of Editor William O'Brien, and ho was deposed from bis poaittou by Mr. I'arnell when be flrst seized the paper on Wednesday. Tho article is addressed in O'Brien's name to every true lover of Ireland the world over, and declares that tbe sole alternative now is Par-nell or Home Rule, and that Home Rule is impossible under Parnell's leadership. A Parnell edition of the paper was also issued from the regular office. No. 33 Lowell Abbey street. It quotes a legal opinion jubtiiying the seizure of the paper by Mr. Parnell. PAPERa THROWS IKTO THE KIVEK. A wagon loaded with copies of the anti-Paruell edition of Onited Inland was driven to the Kingsbridge Railway Station to-day, it being the iutsotion to load them on a train for distribatioo Io the south of Ireland. A� tbe wagon drew up at the station two men, one of whom bad bis face covered with a mask, and the other with a drawn revolver, sprang upon tbe vehicle and compelled tbe driver to proceed with his load to the Island Bridge. When they arrived upon the bridge the two men 0ung all the papers into the Liffey River. Ad attempt was made to seize a second wagon loaded with tbe papers which was standing at'tbe entrance to the depot,'and t would probably have proved anocesafal had not the police interferred to protect the driver. Under their guard the paper* were loaded upon the train. On the arrival of Parnell's United Ireland at Castle Island to-day, the crowd seized the papers and burned them. WILD ENTiroSIASH. CoKK, Dec. 12.-The scenes at Mr. Parnell's reception were similar to those Dublin. Tho streets Were thronged with people and the wildest enthusiasm manifested. The people unharnessed tbe horses from the omnibus in whieh Parnell rode and dragged it to the hotel. Notwithstanding the heavy rain the route was lined with cheering spectators, who stood eight deepen either side. Eandreda of torches lighted op the ranks of the paraders, who marched to tbe patriotio airs of a dozen bands. Mr, Parnell is uncertain whether to remain in Cork or go to Kilkenny to morrow, bat intends the campaign to be a sharp one. At one time during tbe disturbance at Mallow yesterday the mob seemed about to accomplish their purpose by forcing their way into the ijarriage occupied by Mr. Parnell,, wht> tore down a bat-rack from the sidi oflthe^oarriage and prepared to defend himself. Mallow is the birthplace of Mr. O'Brien. Mr. Parnell was received with enthusiasm at Tborles, the seat of Archbishop Cryker where doubts were entertained as to tho character of the reception he would meet with. Teachers' Institote.
