fearing violence Smolavlch drew a re
volver and ordered the men to let him
pass on or he would shoot. They re
fused, ordered him to get down from
his wagon and told him to drop his gun
or they would kill him.
At this point a gang of Hungarians
going towards Jumpers rounded a turn

Special Correspondence of Tho Tribune.
Susquehanna, July 20. William (or
Jack) Gallagher, a burly burglar, was
shot at about 2 o'clock on Saturday
morning, while burglarizing the Dela
ware and Hudson station in Lanesboro.
He had filled a sack with plunder, when
Officer Miles Lovelace and several of
tho villagers appeared, and Lovelace
and Gallagher at once commenoed a
struggle, during which Lovelace shot
Gallagher through the neck, the bullet
lodging In his cheek. The wounded
burglar was taken to the Town Hall
where his wounds were dressed. On
Monday he was taken to Montrose Jail
to await the action of the grand Jury.
Gallagher Is thought to be guilty of
various crimes along the Erie and the
Delaware and Hudson lines. Ho claims
to be a native of Hawley, Wayne coun

Myles McCaffrey, of Gulf Summit, has
four pigs that beat anything ever seen
in that vicinity. One has no trace pf
hind legs, another has no hoofs, but
claws take tho place of the generally-thought-necessary

and pretty nearly everything else that
pigs can get along without.
In a litter of pigs recently farrowed
near Starrucca was one which nearly
resembled an elephant. It had enormoua
ears, a long trunk and one tusk. It
was the color of an elephant, and Its
feet turned up In a peculiar way. The
trunk started from the forehead, and
extended out and down over the mouth.
It was one of those peculiar freaks
which occasionally occur In the animal

The Hallstead Herald suggests that
the new borough Jail be made largo

common council of many of the cities

a mighty good thing for the taxpayers

The Great Bend Plalndealer states
that an escaped lunatic from the Blng
