HUTCHINSON -- FOX. -- At the residence of E. F. Lytle, in Ebensburg, on the evening of June 6th, 1867, by Rev. T. M. Wilson, Mr. J. T. Hutchinson and Miss Nannie E. Fox.

We hope we are not too late in tendering to Todd the congratulations that befit the occasion. May he live a thousand years of wedded bliss, and may his shadow never be less.


The frequency of accidents to property occurring from the failure of owners to make use of lightning rods is attracting attention throughout the country. A good lightning-rod is a sure preventive of these accidents, and no man who knows his own interests will long hisitate to secure one for every building he owns. There are several kinds of lightning-rods before the public, but from all the evidences before us we are led to believe that Munson's copper tubular lightning rod, with spiral flanges, is at once the cheapest and most satisfactory now in use. It is manufactured by the Pittsburgh Lightning Rod Works. Mr. Richard Jones, whose address is Box 50, Johnstown, is the agent for Cambria county. He is doing a good business, we learn, and upon correct principles. He has just contracted with Mr. Joseph Hoffman, whose barn was burned recently, to put up a rod upon his new house and proposed new barn.
