On Saturday before Thanksgiving,
J. II. Hartman, a Stroudsburg butcher,
brought a drove of 250 turkeys to that
place from Bradford county. Fifty or
sixty years ago such droves, and often
larger ones, passed through this county,
on their way to city markets. Local
poultry raisers on such occasions found
it necessary to pen their birds, as other
wise they were sure to join the passing ',
army. The droves always halted at sun
down, and roosted until the next morn
ing, quite a percentage of them tailing !
victims to foxes and other predator'
animals during the night ; but, owing to i
accessions from farmyards alprg the I
route, the losses were not only made up,
but the (locks were usually bigger nu

ginning of their long journey.

Fok obvious reasons this paper, like
all its contemporaries, is giving much
space to the cattle disease which is fast
spreading through Pennsylvania. The
authorities at Harrisburgiuakeno secret '
of the fact that, unless people co-operate
with them, there is a possibility of
the plague spreading throughout the en
tire Stale. Hence there should be no '
effort nt secrecy, and all suspiciouscases
should be reported to Harrisburg, by
telegraph, at the expense of the Stale.
If there is. a single cae in the com
munity, the authorities should he in-
formed of it is; :.r , far a the ad- ,
ministration of medicine is concerned, j
there appears to be no specific, cure for '
the ailment ; safety lies in preventing
the spread of the disease by the prompt
slaughter of infected cattle and the dis
infection or destruction of buildings in
which such-cattle were kept.

It clearly appears, from tl testimony
of Mr. Rockefeller, and the established
facts in its history, that' the oil business
has been really hazardous only to the
independent oil operators. With the re
bates secured by the Standard, and its
system of cut-throat competition, the
business was made "extra hazardous"
to the independents, and they were to a
large extent frozen out, under the bri

The Hawley Times gives particulars
of two wrecks in the Erie yard at that
place on sunday and Tuesday mornings i
of last week. The first was a rear end
near IIX tower between 4:00 and 5:00
o'clock Sunday morning. Engineer Frank
Bond, with engine 1,500 ran into Con
ductor J. P. Kelley's train. The engine
was derailed and quite badly damaged, '
the caboose and one car were demolished,
and several cars were derailed. Fortu
nately no one was in the caboose when
the accident occurred, as the members
of the crew had just finished switching.
Engineer Bond escaped withslightbruises
to his back. The damage amounted to
about $800. The Port Jervis wreckers
cleared the wreck. Another wreck oc
curred near the West Hawlev railroad
bridge about 0:00 o'clock Tuesday morn-1

from Honesdale, and while Conductor i

Three cars were damaged and one was I
destroyed. Considerable damage was i
also done to tho tubing and wires of the
