Butler. Penn., Sept. ij —A mob
of 2,000 at midnight are attempt
ing to take the life of Jerry Ben
nett, a prisoner in the Butler coun
ty jail. The mob has battered
dowa the jail door but are being
held back by the sheriff and depu
ties. A doaen policemen are vain
ly trying to quiet and disperse the
woukl-be-lyncbers. The offictr*
fired over the heads of the crov d
to frighten them back and were
rushed upon by the infuriated men
armed with sticks and stones. De
puty Sheriff Raney Hoon was
strode several times by clubs and
slightly injured. Special Deputy
Lewis Hill was struck in the face
by a board and severely cut. At
1140 a. m., another rush was made
on the jail by a small crowd of the
rioters and Po iceman Graff, who
was standing in the doorway, posh
ed the front man in the party back.
Geo. Klein, a young steel-car
worker, struck Graff and is said to
have tried to pull a gun. Graff
shot him through the calf of the
leg. The assailants then retreated.
Bennett is twenty-six years of
age and was caught in the act of
sssa tilting a seven year old
daughter of John H. Wagoner, a
tailor, under a box car near the
West Pennsylvania railroad sta
tion. The child was covered with
blood and was feebly crying,
"Mamma, mamma," when res
cued from her brutal assailant.

A Dot's Stomach Holds a S2O Rill
The stomach of a dog is a pecu
liar thing to see on the desk of an
official of the United States treasu
ry, but that was the object which
E. E. Schreiner recently spread
out before him.
Mr. Schreiner is chief of the di
vision of redemption of the treasu
ry and haa become accustomed to
receiving money under peculiar con
ditions. Even he, however, ad
mitted the originality of the case in
"Dear sir," rap the letter which
accompanied the stomach, "I send
under separate cover stomach of
my dog Fritz. I was playing with
him today, holding a twenty dol
lar bill np for him to jump at, wlxn
he suddenly leaped higher than I
had anticipated, grabbed the bill
between his teeth and ran under
the bonae, where he chewed the
money up and swaljowed it.
"I thought more of the sio than
I did of Frite—he waa always chaa-,
ing chickens—so I shot him and
cat out his stouiath. Please aee
if you can paste together and re
deem «. M
"The unique feature of this
case," said Mr. Schrieuer, "Isthat
we found the bill, slightly chewed
np, but sufficiently whole to ident

ceived a check for S2O by this

Mr. Small on North Carolina.
We have before us and have read
with a good deal of care and a very
deep interest the speech of Hon.
John H. Small in the House of
Representatives on June aßtli, 1902,
on the State of North Caaolina,
says the Concord Standard. Mr.
Small has surely rendered his State
a most valuable service in thus pre
senting the £t*te he represents.
It is a strong vindication of the
State'a progressiveness and her
rapid development of her many re
He shows that we are of the pur
est type of Americans, there being
the fewest foreigu born citizens.
He gives the minutest statistics
of our climste, including tempera*
ture and raiufall; our various in
dustries, and the leaps and bounds
of their progress; our immense wa
ter powers; our forest and mineral
wealth as well as our wonderful
fisheries and fruits, including ber
ries. He leaves nothing neglected.
He shows the great progress in
educating and the magnanimous
treatment along these lines of the
stronger toward the weaker race.
The onward and upward trend
is shown in tabulated form. Thus
the population of the State increas
es 17.1 per cent, from 1890 to 1900,
while the wage earners increased
109 9 per cent., the wages paid
111 9 per cent, the cost of material
used in manufacturing 133.9 *nd
the value of the products 132.1.
The assessed value, of real estate
increased 16.8. It is shown that
more capita! was employed in 1900
cotton manufacturing than in all
the industries cf the State in 189^.

We hear that some farmers are
getting scarred on account of cer
tain reports that are going the
rounds in the county that the lead
ing tobacco companies are going to
put the prices of tobacco down.
No one knows what might be done,
but so far as we can learn, there is
no indication of auch a movement.
We think if they were planning to
do this they would not be bidding
so high now. The tobacco dealers
seem to think the chances are bet

External Use of Oil.
The prop rtics of cotton seed oil
arc so similar to those of olive oil
that the twj are difficult to be dis
tinguished even chemically; so
similar that the former is freely us
ed and labelled th; latter. Why
will not the otl from the cotton
seed serve equally well as that
from the olive, which the Vegeta
rian says, one of the moat whole
ioms and nutritious articles of diet
is olive oil, ar d it is as beneficial
for external as for internal use. It
was the custom of the ancients,
who were moat luxurious in their
bathing habits, to anoint the body
with vegetable oils sfter the bsth.
Athletes and gladiators also anoint-
Ed their bodies with oils. Roman
athletes were in the habit of using 1
the fresh'y expressed oil of the :
olive to give agility and suppleness !
to their limbs. Someol the great
est beauties of whom history tells
have also been prone to the use of
oil, Mme. Recami r was in the
habit ot partaking freely of olive
oil with her food and using it slso
after bath. Her beautiful akin and
clear complexion were doubtless
due to this rather than to powders
or paints. Tradition soys that both
Cleopatra and Zenob!a partook free-
ly of olive oil and used oils after
the bath. In the countries where
the olive flourishes, such as Italy,
medical pactitionrrs use the oil
very freely for a host of ailments.
It is maintained in the Levantine
countries that the external use of
oil prevents rheumatism, gout and
other kindred maladies which are
aggravated by external chills, and
that the internal use of the oil re
moves the tonic con Jition of the
blood which leads to the genera
tion of the maladies.—F.x.

An incident that tried the nerves
of a number of women occurred in

of content all over the shop until
one of the young lady clerks, in re
moving a roll of cloth, dislodged a
large rat, which at once proceeded
to do trapeze acts all over the store.
The rat was given the right of way

Farmers and Good Roads.
In all States that have given
State aid for road*, the farmers at
first opposed it, but at the present
time they are loudest in their de
mands for their improvement of
the roads, as they appreciate that
they are really benefitted tlie most
because they are continually using
the roads in hauling their products
to market, which they can do at
all seasons of the year over a good
road. The saving made to farm
ers in States where/they have good
roads is enormous - The greater
portion of the cost of State aid, of
course, has to be borne by the ci
ties on account of the greater valu
The lowest estimate of the cost
of the bad roads tax, that of Prof.
Latta, of Perdue University, col
lated from the certi£ed experience
of practical farmers in forty coun
ties of the State of Indiana, amounts
to seventy-seven cent* per acre an
nually, of fifty dollars per square
mile of farm era; and there are one
million square miles of farm era in
the United States; $500,000,000, or
three times the cost of all the com
mon schools in the country, are
thus wasted. —Ex.
