LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER. WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 8
New Yerk volunteer infantry, serving a
year and nine months, at the end of which
time he ' was discharged for disabilities
contracted in the service. After following
his trade in Brooklyn, X. Y., and Middle
town, Del., for a few years he came te
Lancaster some thirteen years age and re
sided here until the'time of his death. He
was an active Democrat, an upright, hon
est, industrious man, and a member of
Zion Lutheran church. lie leaves a wife
and several children te mourn his death.
His funeral will take place en Friday af
ternoon. BART ITEMS,
Frem our Regular Correspondent.
In and around Georgetown the perk
season is at hand and the cars of the early
risers arc saluted with the seething squeak
of some neighbor's porker as he pretests
against the keen edge of the head butch
er's knife. .
The meat industrious men 01 our neigh
borhood arc the blacksmiths. The smooth
horses must be made rough te be able te
stand en the smooth reads. Twe shops in
the village with three Mnitlis, and three
shops iu the township outside of the vil
lage are unable te meet the demand
Thcininncrsaicbtill in search of the
fat rabbit, and the report of lire arras is
heard in all quarters. The most expert of
the Bart sportsmen is a young man in this
village, James Russell, jr. A few days ecu
hejwas informed that a rabbit was as
sitting under his father's hedge. Arming
himself with the most convenient weapon,
a revolver James started out te de an
extraordinary sheeting. Stealing along as
silently asa Sioux Indian,he at last caught
sight of the long ears of cotton-tail, James
felt his bleed begin te course mere rapidly,
his eyes sparkled,and ever his countenance
spread an unmistakable grin of satisfac
tion. He knelt down in the read some
eight feet from his game, steadied his
trembling hand en his knee, cast
his sparkling eye along the
bright barrel of his levelver, pulled
the trigger, and away sped the lea
den messenger into the body of net the
rabbit but an apple tree some twenty feet
further en. home unforeseen eccuricucc
had misplaced his .lim and he had missed.
As seen as James could open his eyes he
looked at the spot where his game was
seen, and te his great joy discovered the
long cars still unmovable. Again he
braced his ncivcs and fired into the
ground some four feet from him and
when a second time the smoke cleared
away, making it sifc for this chivalrous
youth te open his eyes, le! the ears were
still ciect. Maddened te desperation,
James straightened out his arm, grasped
his revolver with ineic dclci initiation and
fired three shete in quick succession, mak
ing the snow and dirt lly some twenty
reds out iu the field. As seen as the
marksman recovered from his nervous
stress he looked at the spot wheic he ex
pected te see his prey stretched nut in the
last agonies of death. And there, as be
fore, were the extended nose, the spark
ling eyes and long ears of ilie game. What
te de James could net tell ; his ammuni
tion was spent ; gunners weie passing the
spotatsheit intuiva's, and if he went for
mere cartridges some one might sheet the
rabbit. After contemplating the long
cars for a few minutes he thrust the re
volver into his pocket and concluded te
steal quietly up te the undisturbed rear of
the rabbit and by a dexterous plunge
secure in his hands the coveted prize.
He succeeded iu getting near enough te
reach the game and bracing his nerves for
one desperate plunge, made a dive at the
long ears, and gave vent te an exclama
tion of delight as he felt, within his out
stretched hands the head of a rabbit. Fer
one moment lie steadied iu::im:1i against
the hedge te gain breath, and then rose te
his feet, but eh, thunder! what's this'' In
his hands he held, tiuc enough, the head
and long cars of a full-grown cotton-tail,
but that was all, no body nor leg:-, net even
the tail was attached ; with one impreca
tion, James dashed the useless head te the
ground, swore vengcance en the unmiti
gated scoundrel who tricked him, and
went home a sadder but wiser man.
