Jinks . drank too much, as all his friends knew,but like many another good fellow who drinks, it was hard to convince Jinks that he ought to let Up-on it He boarded at one of the hotels, and night after night he would remain until past midnight at the saloon bar, "hinting" it in, rendering it necessary morning after morning to have a cocktail brought up from the saloon before he could get out of bed, and then another to brace him up for breakfast. " Finally the bar attendant who brought up the.drinks, remonstrated with him telling him that if he continued his course much longer he would have the "Jim-Jims." '¦The what ?" asked Jinks not exactly comprehending. "The man with the poker—get snakes after you—see things—bare the tremens." "Oh nonsense," said Jinks, "you cannot scare me.

The Fallen Son.—Follow him home now from the scene of his debauch. He is an only son. On him the hopes of the family are centered. Every nerve has been strained to g ive him the choicest education. Parents and sisters gloried in his talents and looked forward to his future fame. Alas! alread y these visions are less bright. Enter now the family circle. Parents surrounded by lovely daughters. Within that circle reigns peace, virtue and refinement. The evening has been spent in animated conversation and the sweet interchange of affectionate endearment.

A voiee that used to mingle in their praises is wanting. An hour rolls away—another hour has gone. Why has all cheerfulness gone f Why do those parents start at every footstep?

Stranger told him to step up to the bar and take something at his expense. Negro did so and soon left. Landlord says to the Stranger: . . ' "Are you acquainted* with that nigger!" ^ ''No, never saw him before; but why do you ask?" " I supposed you were, from your conversing with him, and asking him to take a drink." "Oh," said the stranger, " I was only experimenting. The fact is, I was dry myself, and I thought that if your liquor didn't kill the nigger in fifteen minutes, I would venture to take a drink myself."

Pro*it aDB' Loss.—As rather an unscrupulous fellow named Ben was coming down town one morning, he met Tom and stepped him. "I say, Tom," he said, "here's a pretty good counterfeit three. If yon'll pass it I'll divide!" "Let's see the plaster," said Tern t and after examining it carefully, he put it in his vest pocket, remarking, "It's an equal division—a dollar and thalf a-piece ?" "Yes," said Ben. "All right,'* said Tom, and off he went. A few minutes afterwards he quietly stepped into the store of his friend Ben, and purchased a can of oysters for a dollar and a half, laying down the three dollar bill for them. The elerk looked at the bill rather donbtingly, when hit suspicions were immediately calmed by Tom, who said : "There was no use looking, for he had received that from Ben himself not ten minutes since. Of course the clerk, with this assurance, forked over the dollar and a half in change, and with this deposit and the can of oysters, Tom left. Shortly afterward, he met ...

The applications for clerkships and similar positions in large estoblishments are numerous beyond anything that would be thought of those who have no chance to witness it.

BELLEFONTE, PA The Thayer and Greenbank Contested Election Case. The coffee-pot frauds of W. A. Wallace & Co. will not soon be forgotten by the people of Pennsylvania, nor will the people ever forget the outrageous frauds committed hy the Democratic party in Philadelphia at the last October election. The Kepublican Press of Philadelphia openly and fearlessly charged home these frauds upon the Democratic party, and which were most emphatically denied by the Democratic organs.eveiy. where. But the Thayer and Geeesbank contested election case settles the question. There is no longer-any room for the Democracy to deny the charges of outrageous frauds in the Philadelphia election.— Every investigation made brings to light a state of facts both scandalous and disgraceful.

The Majority in Centre County, Taking the native born vote in this county, the Republican party has a handsome majority. But we have from five to six hundred foreign born adopted fellow citizens—the majority of these natives of Ireland. Threefourths of all these adopted citizens have heretofore voted with the Democratic party, and thus gave it the control of all the offices in the county.— It cannot be the fear of Know-nothingism that causes these men of foreign birth to vote the Democratic ticket. The best evidence we have for this assertion is the fact that these same men yoted last fall for Frank P. Blair and M. L. Mackey, who were among the first knownothings in the country. Why, then, do our adopted follow citizens act and vote with tho sham Democracy? We appeal to every intelligent Irishman, and ask him what'the Democratic party has ¦ ever done.'for him. Has it ever nominated you or any of your countrymen in this county,1 where it owes its strength to your votes, to any ...

National Woman's Suffrage Conven tion. The address of the National Woman's Suffrage Convention was presented recently to the Senate, and referred to the District of Columbia Committee. The women have rights. Of course they have. We have no objections to them holding conventions and demanding those rights. Women Toting would certainly be something new under the sun; and there would, it seems to us, be something very pleasant in a man and his &e«er-half going up to the election window together to deposit their votes; but suppose they would differ in polities; what then?—Again would they not be likely to copy after the sterner sex, and get into the habit of keeping late hours, frequenting the grog-shons under the pretext of securing a vote, fighting, hair-pulling, blacking each other's eyes, gauging, scratching, biting, raising Cain generally, and get locked up for their rowdyism?

The Elections on Friday. Last week we urged upon our Republican friends the importance of nominating good men for the respective offices ; after which, to make one strong pull and a pull altogether, to elect them.!. We sincerelyhope, friends, tinatyou will act upon our suggestion and do your whole duty. No on. e can estimate the importance to a party of thorough organization, and in the spring elections, is the time to make this influence felt. For eight years the Democrats have had full control of all the county offices. They have had their own way in the management of the finances of the county. What is the result? Simply this. Your county taxes under Republican rule in this county, were 2j mills to the. dollar. Now, under Democratic misrule and extravagance your county taxes amount' to 7J mills to the dollar. Democracy, as you se ^ e, has been a very expensive luxury in this county. You want a change. We know you do. Every honest man in the county does. How can this be br...
