The hogs had been haulud there by

that it was impossible to remove the
swine and, therefore, a hog cemetery
on a small scale, was established. If
those who be in authority were sure of
the guilty parties, they would think it
an expensive burying ground. Not
long since five or six hogs were thrown
into the Sandy Lick near the place
where the two were found making so

Accept Our Thanks.
The exchanges that como to this

notices of the bright, newsy, and neat
typographical apiearanoo of The STAR,
and not only our newspaper brethren,
but many tieoplo of Roynoldsvlllo and
lsewliero have kind words to say for
the twinkling Infant in newapaperdom.
'or tho words of praise we are very
grateful, and will endeavor to keep
apace with tho times that wo may
always merit the distinction of being
orthy a place among our oxchnngQS,
and that tho jx-oplo of Roynoldsvlllo and
icinlty may appreciate The Star to
tho extent of a years' sulwcription.
FoimI given to a hungry man, with
words of sympathy and encouragement,
an apH'aso the cravings of an appe
tite where words of sympathy would lie
f no account, so words of praise ainrom-
pniiied with an order forayears'sulwerip
tlon, advertisement, or job work will
go farther In a newspaper office In

ing brass or a tinkling symbol."
Tho BtiWrlption list is growing. Wo

Wo again say wo are thankful to our
exchanges and friends for their praise
Oct the Western Spirit.
One of tho noeossary moans adapted
to the welfare of a town is local prldo
aud zeal. Boston has tho reputation of
being tho"hubof the universe, "but every
resident of every town and city should
consider his own particular homo tho
hub." It Is especially true of the west
that local pride builds up the new places
and sustains the old. Roynoldsvllle
should bo txthlnd no town In this re
spect. Fow places have a larger possi
bility of growth and prosperity than
does our town. We ought to look to
the future as well as the present in
making plans for building up the inter
ests of Roynoldsvlllo. The proper pride
and enterprise on tho part of our pooplo
would add largely to our population
in the immediate future.
Lot no town lead us In matters of
improvement, let no town load us in
efforts to give employment to labor and
oulld up homo industry I Let us get tho
breezy, progressive wostern spirit and
thou, though Royuoldsvlllu may not be
tho "hub of tho unlvorso," we will
rejoice in being, figuratively speaking,
tho felloe; for through wo may refuse to
bollovo that "tho sun do move," we may
discover that we do niovo in the right
direction on in growth and success,
towards the goal of our fondest desires.
Where Shall it Be t
Tho location of school building is
before the school board and as all tho
pooplo aro, or should bo, Interest
ed, thoy should now havo their say
and then hold their peaco. The
old Sandy Lick property Is ono
location spoken of, tho Logan property,
back of tho Catholic church, is another,
Wo would venture a wagor that eight'
tenths of the tax payers would say lot
us have the present location with its
disadvantages to either of the proposed
ones with their miasmatic surroundings.
To tho south of those tho town cannot
extend on account of swamp and water
To tho north of the present location
every advantago Is now open for build
lng with tho very important ono of good
drainage. It should only be noeossary
to cite the taxpayers to tho extra cost in
buying a now location within a stones
threw of the ono thoy have. If the
people say change, so be It.

Twenty-five business mon of Reynolds

'rotectivo Association. This associa
tion was organized just recently and
meets tho second Tuesday evening of
each month. The object of this organ
ization is to protect the merchants from
that class of pooplo who buy and never
pay, or, in other words, "professional
dead beats." The names of those who
refuse to pay thoir acount are sent Into
the association and tho delinquents are
notified by tho association to call
and sottlo tho amount or mnko satisfac
tory arrangements for the settlement of
tho same. This notice Is repeated
several times and if no attention Is paid
to it then the name of the non-payer is
placed on the black list which is Issued
every sixty days and a copy sent to
each member of tho association. Thus
each business man Is mado acquainted
with those who refuso to pay thoir bills.
A penalty of twenty dollars Is imposed
upon any momborof the association who
gives such persons credit. Whon a man
asks for credit the merchant gets his list,
looks It over and If the name of the one
who seeks credit appear thereon, ho is
informed that the list of creditors of
that establishment is as long as they
wish to make it, hence no credit is
granted to fellow who will not pay. If
all Roynoldsvlllo merchants wore to join
this association tho "professional dead
beats" would be' driven out of the town
and business mon bo mora successful

AN EVENING! TRIP.
Thirty-five People Explore the Big Soldier
Last Thursday evening a party num
bering thirty-five, composed of the la
dles of the Utopia Circle and their hus
bands and a few friends, enjoyed an
exceedingly pleasnnt excursion through
the Big Soldier Mino, threo miles from
Reynoldsvillo. The excursion was
given by Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Brown In
honor of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Elliott, of
Mansfield, Pa., who are thoir guests.
At 7:.KI an engine and coach on tho R.
F. C. R. R. was In waiting for the ex
cursionists at tho Company store, and a
fow minutes after that hour the Iron
horse was speeding along towards tho
mines. On arriving at Big Soldier
there tho party found nine coal cars thnt
had boon lined with new boards, with
throe sonts In each car, divided Into
three sections, two long cared animals
attached to each section, ready for tho
trip "underneath the ground." A dls-
ance of 2,iiH) feet In tho mine was
reached without any mishap, but a few
narrow esea)xs by those who wore a
little tardy about olxylng tho command
f "down heads!" Supt. Geo. Mellinger.
lvil Englnoer F. M. Brown and assis
tant, R. V. Pratt, and Mino Boss. Rich
ard Smith, were with tho party and
acted as guides. Tho party left the coal
mino coaches and walked some distance
to seo the iron-man, the old Harrison
mining machine, digging coal. This
machlno Is operated by one man and ro-
elves its strength from compressed air
that is piped Into the mino for power.
rem that point tho party retraced their
short walk and crossed tho main en
trance and visited a largo pump used to
koep tho water out of the mine, which
also receives its jxiwer from the com-
prossod air. This pump was doing
oublo service, forcing the water out of
the mine and manufacterlng ice at the
samo time, on a small scale.
Some of the fair sex wore vory timid.
One of tho ladys In going through a
room was afraid to touch one of the
props, fearing tho hill would fall upon
tho party. The outward trip was mado,
no one being any the worse for the
exploration of the mino, barring the
difficulty somo found in getting the
kinks out of thoir necks.
Tho party then visited the large
englno that keeps tho ptx:8 in the mine
filled with compressed air and that
keeps tho largo fans In rapid motion to
furnish ventilation necessary for the men
who work in tho mine. Tho engine and
coach started on tho homeward trip
with tho excursionists. Mr. aud Mrs.
Brown had not forgotten the old saying,
'The way to peoplo's hearts I find, is
through their mouths, or I mistake
mankind," for a supply of fruit had
boon provided and was passed around.
Arriving at the company store
thoy then visited the general office of
the company and were shown some of
the mups of the Company's mines and
lands. Tho largest map was a master
piece of civil engineer work that had
boon dono by F. M. Brown. This map
alone cost something over $2,000.
It was In the civil engineer's office that
a mischief-maker conceived tho idea of
rubbing his dirty fingers across the face
of a lady who was standing near him.
The party up to this time were compar
atively clean, but after tho first black
mark was made the greasy end of a
mino lamp was frequently touched by
fair fingors and a lively time ensued and
a dirty looking crowd left the office,
Those who had chargoof the excursion
viod with ouch other In trying to make
the trip an enjoyable one. All returned
to their homes with expression of
thankfulness to Mr. and Mrs. Brown for
the pleasant evening and pleasure of
such a trip.
Last Sad Rites.
The funeral services of John Bone
