As the morning train came thundering in. the engineer discovered a little child beside the track; in the deep cut near S.F. Lane's.

Susquehanna County - The National Baptist, speaking of the numerous cases of assault by ruffians upon unprotected women, says that a woman need never be entirely defenseless if she has a hatpin. That such an instrument, in the hands of a determined woman, is a most efficient weapon. If a hatpin is a good thing, what's the matter with one of those long steel daggers that many ladies wear stuck through their back hair which have the additional advantage of a handle. The casting of the great Columbian Liberty Bell will occur June 8. This bell will be composed of historic material gathered from many sources. The bell will be cast at Troy, NY and all contributions of material to be used into the bell should be sent to the C.H. Meneely Bell company, at that place, and a full statement of the history of said material be sent to Minnie F. Mickley, Mickleys, PA. The following metals can be fused into the bell: gold, silver, bronze, copper, tin, and nickel. It is also desired that each child who attends a public school shall send a penny to help pay for the casting of the bell. These contributions should be sent to Liberty National Bank, New York. The historical material will be carried free by the United States, Adams, American, or Wells Fargo Express companies. AND We [Republican, Montrose] return thanks to A.W. Lyons for a sample of the California Seedless Orange. These oranges are something new in this Market. They are almost as solid as an apple, and or excellent flavor. There is not a seed in them. If you want a good orange try the California seedless.
