' Earthquake in the United Stjitcs.
Fortunately for that portion of
tho World comprising the United
States of America, our1 knowledge
of that dread phenomenon of na-
J ture,l known as earthquakes, has
been derlvpd from thejjhlstory of
i such occurances in the countries of
the volcanjc regjons in both hom-
, ispheres. These phenomena aro of
comparatively rare occuranco in
i this county although several of dis
astrous force hayo occurred. Tho
most important perhaps was that
of 1811. Tho central point of vio
lence during this oarthquako was
thought to bo near Little Prairie,
or Now Madrid a town on tho Miss
issippi river below St. Louis. It ox
tended from tho mouth of tho Ohio
to that of St. Francis, a region
ubout 300 miles long and of vary
ing width. The first and most se
vere sl(()ck was felt Dec. 1G, 1811,
and was repeated at intervals with,
decreasing force untif tho middle
of Feb. 1812. During this time tho
earth roso and fell in groat undula

drained. Tho water in tho Mlssip

out of line ami cracking tho walls.

An unfortunate conflict occurred

Last fall John Cook procured the
Township Trustoes to grant hlin a
road across a small corner of tho
lands of his neighbor Jesse Roby.
On Thursday Cook and his seven
teen year old son went to work to
open tho road. They wero met
there by Roby and his son a large
full grown man, tho father being
armed with an Iron "square" and
tho son with a doublo bitted axe.
Roby began tho old dispute about
the road, using aggravating lan
guago toward Cook. Cook ordered
him ropeatedly to leave, which ho
rofusod to do. Iu a short time
young Roby began making demon
strations on Cook with tho axe and
shortly tho whole party got In
their work about as follows:
Roby struck Cook with tho
square, Cook answered with a
club, tho blow taking effect across
Roby's shoulders, then young Roby
struck Cook two heavy blows In
tho back of tho head with tho flat
part of his axe, At this, young
Cook struck young Roby In tho
back with his mattock, there

F. J. Harmison & Co.,
The Patent Pence ltacket.'
A number of our well-to-do farm
ers in this county have been swin
dled by sharpers on some kind of a
patent fence scheme.
The . scheme is to get a man to
permit tho party to put up a section
of tho fence on his farm to show
what the fence is, and get the
farmer to give his address, so that
It can be shipped to him. The ad
dress turns out to bo a contract and
then tho farmer Is induced by ar
gument, if possible, or by threats of
prosecution in the United States
Courts, or otherwise persuaded to
give his note. If the farmers would
set the big dog on men who ap
proach them with this and similar
"rackets," or take the shot-gun in
hand, these fellows would soon
make themselves scarce. But these
frauds will continue as long as peO'
pie have more confidence in the
smooth-tongued swindler, than In
the law and courts, and their own
God-given right of self-protection.
Wo believe that in three cases out
of Ave these tricks are worked on
men who boast that they know
nothing about tho laws and do not
wish to. "Ho that won't hear must
feel," is as truo now as over.
