Editor Kegister : It becomes my
painful duty to record another item
from Providence Sehoolhonse.
The school Is just out, that so much
has been said agd written about. The
day that has been long looked lor,
came last Friday, and the teacher that
teaches; that the earth is flat, as might ;
be expected, was out of humor with
certain: parties especially the friend
of the "forks and concluded to have
revenge out of somebody. So. for a
very trifling offence, he called up a
little boy some twelve years of age
(son of jCliarles Charlton), and stripped
him down to a thin, shirt, and whipped
him unmercifully, leaving marks tlint
could ' be counted fifty yards. The
flesh wis tartly bruised. - It majce my
heart sick to think .of it.. The fntlier
of the boy had the young teacher
(Franklin Crabtree), arrested and
brought! before the Hon. H. Derthick,
and fined fifty dollars and costs, and
everybody . said amen. , He has left
for Arizona, and there is many a tear
that will not be shed on account of
his sudden departure.
I still remain,
informed our readers last jWeek,
articles of incorporation have been
filed inaugurating the Harrisbur &
McKenzte Canal and Water Ditch
Co. The intention of the gentlemen
forming) the Company is to secure
stock subscriptions amounting to
$80,000, 'said subscriptions to be used
in the construction of a canal conveying
the waters of the McKenzie to Harris-
burg. It is intended to takd the water
from the McKenzie at Spore's terry,
a distance of probably fourteen or
fifteen miles from Harrisburg. We
are told the enterprise la an entirely
feasible one, and the highest hopes of
success are entertained. It is quite
an undertaking for Harrisburg, but
it her citizens are thoroughly aroused
and fully understand the benefits which
will naturally flow from the comple
tion of ''such an improvement, who
can doubt of its success? Still the
gentlemen who have it in hand have
a huge work before them a task
that will require perseverance and
un relaxing energy. Often those t who
a re. to be he most benefitted by a new
enterprise are the last and most un
willing to see and aid it. But we
Uofcx- tuaG the citizens of ILinlsbnrg
have not only the means but the lib
erality aiid energy to successfully
carry ouC the work, and that the
Harrisburg & McKenzie Canal may
soon become an acknowledged fact.
All enterprises of this character de
serve at least the good -will of every
citizen who is anxious to advance the
best interests of his county and State.
Let us haVe the Canal, and the soouer
the better.
Sherrill's Seed Sower and Cultivator.--We
liave called the atten
tion of our readers "to the merits of
this excellent machine on more than
one occasion, and we do so again,
believing that it is to the interest of
our agricultural friends to investigate
for themselves, and thus establish the
fact each for himself of its excellence.
We may be mistaken in our estimate
of the machine, but we are inclined to
believe, until better evidence is ad
duced, that it is the best combined
machine made, no matter where it
halls from or who made it, for sowing
and cultivating wheat, oats, barley,
flax seed. etc. To give the farmers of
this portion of the county a chance to
see and examine for themselves, Mr.
Slierrill has one of his machines on
exhibition with W. H. Dodd & Co.,
in the Register Building, wliere all
are cordially invited to come and ex
amine for themselves.
Nice Butter. On Saturday last
Mr. C. T. Ingrain presented us with
some splendid batter, the first real
nice butter we had been able to secure
up to that time for weeks. It; was
nice, sweeC butter, in great yellow

botanical preparations of Dr. Heniy.
Whoever Induces the victim of Scrofula or
anv other disease of the blood, to use Dr.
Henry's Extract of 6arerjarU'tt, has began
good work. Tfverectsn he no question as
to the result of this medicine If persevered
i-n. It is a rare euro for Scrofnla, Rheuma
tism, Salt Kheum, and indeed all com
plaints arising from viiated or Impure
blood. It is lust what a good physician
would prescribe for these complaints, and
we confidently recommend it as being the
best article now in use. Dr. Henry's
Congh Balsam Is the most effective remedy
for any affections of the Throat or Langs
that we have ever known. It contains no
detetertoua drugs, and can be taken with
impunity and certainty of relief. For the
core of Coughs, Colds, Bore Th roat, etc, it
stands without a rival. Dr. Henry's Lini
ment as an alleviator of pairs, is unrivalled
by any preparation before the public ; the
most skeptical will be convinced by a
single trial. It will prove itself a "friend
in need" which no family should be with
out. ' - - ' -'.-

- Fun Alive. A first clasat wedding
came off put in the prairie a tew days
ago, which afforded the "boys" a huge
old time. The minister who was sent
for to do up the job came much earlier
than he was expected, and informed
the to-be-married that he had but just
so much time, and if they wished to
be united they must hurry up. Thus
urged, and before the guests; had ar
rived, the two were hurried into the
presence of tlie minister, who "spliced"
tliem tight before they bad time to
think. The newly made husband, as
soon as ! he "got his wind," com
menced lamentations both loud and
long, in the langnage of our inforaiant
he "boo-hooed all over the yard, till
eventually his wife got tip on lier
ear" and declared that it the boys
would chiravari him she'd pay all the
expenses.; And tlie fun grew fast and
furious, until some of the visitors in
formed the newly made bride it was
time to retire. She thereupon in
formed the crowd that site didn't in
tend to go to bed until site got ready.
Two of her lady friends then, jokingly,
took liold, of her to go through the
ceremony of putting her to bed, when
she incontinentaily threw herself into
an attitude, struck out manfully with
her ."mawleys," knocking both ladies
"out of time," one of tliem falling
into a jar ot yeast, sadly demoralizing
her "good clothes." Of course we
won't mention names, but those folks,
living within at 1 10 u sat id miles ot Leb
anon, who got away with all the big
cake, because the ceremony was per
formed before thejr St there; deserve
the severest censure, perhaps not T The
