ORTON, Field Sec'y. Thoughtless Trespassing. I wonder how those young ladies, those aspiring young men and those * business men from Emporium, who entered on my property on Whitto more Hill last Sunday, gathered my chestnuts, beat the trees with clubs and stones, and with large rocks thumped the trunks of the trees, thus loosening the bark and permanently injuring the trees, would enjoy being arrested for trespass and petty lar ceny, and thus be branded as law breakers, thieves and criminals? There is at hand abundant evidence sind wit nesses to convict. It is just as much theft in this case as for a person to en ter any other place of business and help himself to what he might happen to want. Unless such things cease at once somebody is liable to get into serious trouble, regardless of whom he or she may be. Oct. sth, 1910. R. P. HEILMAN. Changes at Library.

EMPORIUM, PA., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1910. DEATH'S DOINGS. C3L2SS LARRABEE. Last Saturday evening, about 8:15 o'clock, our citizens were pained to hear of the sudden death of Mrs. Qeorgianna M. Larrabee, wife of our old and highly respected citizen, Mr. M. M. Larrabee, at the family residence East Fourth street, after an illness of several months. While the sad r.ews was painful to theexcellent lady's many friends yet her death was not a sur prise to those familiar with the circum stances. Mrs. Larrabee, daughter of Capt. B. S., and Mary A. Mayo, both deceased, was born in Hampden, Maine, in July, 1847, therefore being aged years and three months. She came to Cameron county iu 1868, her father being engag ed in lumbering operations at Cam eron, with his brothers. Later she taught school in Emporium for two years when she met and married M. M. Larrabee, Sept. 20th, 1871. She leaves to mourn her death, her hus band ana three children: Marian E., Don M., and Ciifton S. Larrabee, also one brother, Mr. E. B. Mayo, of Min neapolis, Minn. About six years ago Mrs. Larrabee was afflicted with diabetes and that dread malady brought about a greatly weakened condition, although she was able to be about her home aud was al ways in good spirits. She had a warm, genial disposition, which great ly helped her to bear her affliction bravely and cheerfully. During the weok preceeding her death she had en joyed a happy visit with her entire family, gathered at her home and i;he ate dinner with them all, the evening of her death. Shortly after seven o'clock, Saturday evening, she went up stairs to put her little grand son to sleep aud after doing that re turned to the room below, complaining of feeling weak. She laid down for a little while and then started back up ' stairs to retire. When she reached the | top of tho stair case she was seen by ; her son Don to bo struggling as if she was unable togo further and he quick ly assisted her to her room and medical assistance was summoned. It was without avail and within fifteen min utes she passed away, surrounded by her husband and children. We have known and highly respect ed the deceased ever since she came to Emporium, Her excellent qualities were of the highest order. Aside from the attention to her household duties and cares, she always found time to de vote to the development of her artistic tastes, both in painting and music, in which branches she possessed marked talent and skill. Mrs. Lirrabee was a scholarly and well read lady and her home contained much of the best liter ature and was a source of true culture aud refinement. Many able and pleas ing articles have appeared in the Press from her pen and upon numerous occa sions she hasspoken upon livequestions before the public. She knew what to say, when to say it and when to stop. One of the organizations to which she gave much of her attention and ef fort was the Womens Relief Corps. Above all, Mrs. Larrabee was in the fullest sense, a christian in all that the name implies. She became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Hampden, Maine, when a girl and dur ing her active and useful life, was a true, consistent christian woman. As one who knew her well has suit!, "Mrs. Larrabee lived her Christianity every day iu her many acts of kindness and tboughtfulness of others anil her life bus been a blessing to ttiecominuulty ." Many are the stricken homes that have been aided and comforted by her and her broad aud generoua sympathy went out to the afflicted at all times. To thtsie of her home-circle, huaband, children and grant! children, who were the constant objects of Iter geutle mini strations and love, her stiddeu taking away has twiuie aa a terrible blow, till. Ing their heart* with the deepest sor row, but the memory of her !>eautlful life and character will ever remain for them a sacred heritage Her life waa such as to leave a lasting impression for k<mml upon all who knew her, and we all feel that she waa one of tboee tur whom It was promised, ages ago, by the prophet, that "At Hut* II sfeail be Ugh! " IIIK rt'NMMI-. Th« funeral servi< e*were heitl frout J the family residence JKdneedsy alter uoou at two o'clouk aud waa very large ly attended Religions Mr vices were conducted by her pastor, He v.

Runaway Train Ditched to Save Collision. This morning (Thursday) about nine o'clock, a freight train composed of about twenty carp, loaded with sacked flour,was in some unaccountable man ner lost control of by tho engineer, coming down the steep grade into Siverville. At this point the railroad company n.re putting in double tracks but there is a "d" rail in this location to be used in case of runaway trains and is always left open. The Buffalo Express train, No. 59, which leaves Emporium Junction at 8:45 a. m., was just about due at Sizerville and in or der to save a head-on collision the operator was compelled to leave the "d" rail switch open and thereby ditch <he runaway freight train. The engineer and two firemen, who were on the engine, were very serioudly in jured and their injuries may prove fa tal. Train No. 59 was flagged and or dered back to Emporium Junction and was taken over the P. & E. division to Johnsonburg, thence by way of Sineth port and Lnrrabpe to the Buffalo Divi sion. The freight cars piled up and flour is scattered in all directions. While being a very serious wreck, yet it may be considered lucky that no one was killer! and that the Express train was a little late and thereby saved a head-on collision. Coyle-Foster.
