In lftfW. havafi vasm after the deAr tion of Pardee Hall on October 21, 1873, the Hall will be dedicated.) The preparatory work the building just burned was in active progretf July, 1872, and to-day, seven years afterward! same active work is being done on the hill. A ready stated in the Free Frets, Messrs. Ho Steihmetz A Co. are engaged with a force of mien in removing the stonework of the building.

At prysent thirty men are but la a few day after the fine Btooe is safely removed, a larger force will be put to work. The contractors are eaoh day besieged by applicants for work, as many as two hundred paving applied in one day. Of course only Easton men are employed, and in a few days those who are now refused will be given wcrk. The work in removing the stone goes slowly, as all the white Ohio sandstone, which is not damaged, will bo osed again, and it is of course desirable to do no damage to the corners. The specifications for the rebuild- ing of the hall have been prepared and demonstrate that the new building will be in every way a fitting successor to the former one.

STOCKTON MATTERS. bTOCKTOK, July 29, 1879. If any of your townsmen are fond of hunting snakes, there is an excellent chanoe for such sport around this section.

P'" The waters of the political cauldron, in this vicinity, are becoming heated at last. The Demo-i crats hold their meeting next Saturday for the eleo tion of delegates to the county convention, and much interest is felt as to the gentlemen in whose behalf they are likely to be pledged.

This morning we were shown a letter, upon which was transferred from an enclosed note a fao simile of the note. The sheet upon which the letter was written was a printed head, with the statement ot the enclosure, such as large business firms Hence there was a clear space for the trans fer of tbe note and the same could have been used as a means of counterfeiting.

Tbe letter had been copied in a copying press and the paper was damp when the note was folded. The folding, sealing and pressing of the letter acted exactly as a press4 ing machine and writing on the note was transferred to the blank paper of the letter. Too much care cannot be exercised by the clerks and business men in preventing such a transfer. Zaslon Fret Press. 1 -i i CHANGING SCHOOL BOOK Lots of school book agents are infesting the ceunty and endeavoring with might and main to in-dace school board to discard old kinds of books and substitute new ones; To do this, is nor, in our opinion, either wise or just to either pupils or parents, and last, but not least, 'to our.

booksellers. Having onoe adopted a good system of books, and there are many of them, let the boards of education retain the same. It is not right that parents should be required, to invest their cash (not often -over- plentiful) in books for their children one term only to find them valueless at tne opening ot the next, for though publishers of books offer to exchange old for new, at (he commencement ofterni, not more than two-fifths are thus exchanged, and the burden of expense falls on the parents, who are compelled to have the books or keep their children home. Again, it is unfair to our home dealers, who put their capital in books previously used, to have their stock laid on their hands. or disposed of at a heavy discount on its cost It has been truly said that among tbe greatest enemies of the common sobools are the book agents and the changing of school books.

PRESENT TAX LAW. The new tax law of Pennsylvania compels- 'railroad and transportation oompanies, besides their dividend tax, to pay a tax on gross receipts, and companies mining coal to pay a special tax on that Home insurance companies are taxed on their foreign insurance companies, banks, and all corporate and unincorporated fiscal agencies, on their net earnings, and a fixed tax of four mills on the dollaV is levied on all evidences of debt publio or private. Corporations in general are taxed three mills on the dollar on the par value of their stock, if a 6 per cent dividend is declared, and less or more as the dividends are larger or smMler. A tax of three nulls oa the dollar on that valuation' is levied if no dividends are declared, all profits kepi by the company being treated as dividends.
