Many of the people of Susquehanna
county have been in the habit of oon
rlderlng the borough of Forest City as
representing nothing far removed
from a quarterly bill of costs, although
when the- county line was being defi
nitely located It was a bill they seemed
anxious to continue. Now, however,
that thp alien tax law has come Into
existence, the town In the southeast
ern confines of the county promises to
be a source of revenue that It will not
be so disagreeable for them to con
template. The proportion of aliens
here to the population Js large and a
nice sum will be paid by them each
year as a result of the now law. It
ought, and no doubt will, be fufllclent
to materially add to school llnances
nnd ptovlde for what work Is fur
nished the criminal courts from this
place during the year. If It does this
y e will all be happy and bless the man
who firat evolved the scheme and the
legislature that enacted it Into a law.

done by the naturalization courts In
the next few vears.

Special to tho Scranton Tribune,
Susquehanna, Juno 29. A Starracca
farmer, while cow-hunting near Lake
Poyntelle, saw a big flock of crows,
among which, Judging from the birds'
strange behavior, something of Inter
est must be going on. The crows were
gathered around a dead cow, and one
of them had got his foot fastened in
the carcars in soma way and was un
able to free himself. Finally his com
rades bit tho captive's foot off, which
caused its owner to scream plteously,
but released him. Upon examination
tle farmer found that the Btomach
contained a huge turtle, which had
been swallowed when the saurian was
small. A hole Just big enough for tho
turtle's head had been made In tho
cow's hide by the crows, by which tho
turtle had been able to capture Its un
suspecting victim. Although a prison
er for years, the turtle had lost noth
ing of the pugnacity peculiar to Its
kind. The farmer had turtle soup for
his Sunday dinner.

Wllkes-Barre, June 29. A rattle
snake twenty-seven Inches In length
was killed In the yard of City Editor
Whte, of tho Times, on Carey ave
nue yesterday at noon. The reptile
had crawled up the wire screen pea
rack, had tied himself Into as pretty
a bow knot as one could tie by hand,
and was weaving his head back and
forth with graceful motion as proud
as a peacock. Arthur Homadleu was
called and he put a bullet through tho
snake's head and, as he thought, poked
out what remained of life and threw
the remains in an ash barrel in the
rear of tho lot. Last evening when Mr.
White arrived home he found his
snakeshlp, looking somewhat ragged
from tho effects of the shot, under tho
grape arbor flirting with a neighbor's
cat, and he was quickly sent to that
bourne whence no reptiles return.
A gentleman well acquainted with
the habits of snakes says that the
cheeky fellow no doubt arrived In the
city In a Jersey Central gondola. These
empty gondolas are frequently side
tracked In the mountains and snakes
are occasionally found In them by the
railroad men. Tho one In question
probably came that way nnd crawled

New York, Juno 2D. Tho market for se
curities today Was one to delight tho pro
fesslonal trader, fluctuations tn many of
tho leading shares being wide and very
erratic. Sugar moved over a rango of ilii
during tho day, Chicago Gas wns almost
equally wide in its fluctuations and was
erratic and even more active. Prices In
the list generally were feverish, especial
ly tho Grangers and sagged to a marked
degree, giving a eiy Irregular aspect to
the market. But when heavy liquida
tion in Sugar and Chicago Gas set in dur
ing the final hour the doubts of holders
returned in full forco and storks of all
the leading properties were thrown over
at n. lively rate In a feverish desire to
realize and prices generally were carried
down to the lowest point of the day. A
partial rally In Chicago Gas stiffened
prlees above the lowest, leaving final re
sults mixed betwten gains and losses.
Most of the prominent active shares show
losses extending to l?i In Sugar and 2!&
in Standard Hope. The coalers resisted
the general heaviness on tho increase In
tho circular rates' for anthracite coal.
Among the most prominent stocks to
show gains, though only fractional, were
Tobacco, which was strong and very ac
tive during the greater part of the day.
New Jersey Central, Omaha, Tennessee
Coal and St. Louts Southwestern. Tho
volume of trar sections was almost bb

of the dealings were concentrated In Chi
