Special to tho Serunton Tribune. Slisilteliiiiiuu. Dec-. 'J9. Joe Wosrott, of Uivat 1 tin J township, hud an exciting experience on Saturday. While he was butchering houx nt his home near Hed Itoi-k a bin buck deer came dashing over the hill anil down through the diiiiryard to the Susquehanna river, an eighth of a mile distant. Wesiott ran to the house for a sun, and the two hind men, grubbing their lmlc-herinp; knives, ran down to the river to head the deer up stream. Wescott made for the river down through a short ravine, and Just us he had stepped upon the lee the deer eanie out of a bunch of willows skirting the stream. Wescott, in his excitement and eagerness, tired at the animal nnd only succeeded in wounding it. The deer sprang at Wes cott and was evidently full of light. Hefoie ho could reload his gun the ani mal was upon him, and had tossed him high in the air. When Wescott struck tho ice it cracked and parted, and man and deer dl.sap'icarcd from view and lloated down stream under the lee sev eral rods, until they emerged into u lift, where the river was not frozen over. Wes.ott who was nearly un conscious, was fished out and dragged out lv the two men, who turned their liiimi ilinte attention to the deer, which, tpim its wound and Its experience in the water, was nearly helpless and an easy victim to the men, who stubbed it to death and hauled It ashore. Wes cott soon recovered. He savs when he was under the ice all of the principal events of his life passed vividly before his vision. Wescott's near neighbors all hud venison for their Sunday din ner.

Forest City is once more preparing for electric lights. Kew towns need them worse. TIIE SILVER UOAT. The old farmer, whose goat had butted its brains out against a swing ing plank that returned every time it was hit, remarked that the "darn crit ter had plenty of grit, but no sense; he didn't know he was licked till he was dead." Recent event only confirm the application of the farmer's remark to the genuine out-and-out silver man. Knocked down and overwhelmed, he mini us himself with a badge to com memorate his defeat ami celebrates his steadfastness and challenges another blow, lie doesn't know he is whipped. He faces consequences with admirable pluck and deplorable Indiscretion. He has t lentv of grit but no sense. I'lti mately he will kill himself battling against the Irresistible. TOPICS TOPI'Iil'MOST. The "Yellow Kid of Hogaii'H Alley" company went to pieces on the shoals of Susquehanna on Saturday evening. The goat was the star of the company. The funeral of the Infant son of Clias. Hoyden occurred on Sunday afternoon. An able and reputable lecturer de sires somebody In Susquehanna to guar antee him Sl'.'iH for a series of lectures on tlie poets. Susquehanna isn't a loo tude town, but if he will drop the ci pher, some hopeful capitalist will go into the veneure. The remains of Patrick C'affney, of Fuiiiuiit, were interred in the old Cath olic cemetery in Lanesboro on Satur day. A Hebrew peddler tockiy, at I.anes boro, with a hammer, attempted to knock an Ice ball out of his mule's hoof and was kicked over a board fence and into a creek. And the blow it nearly killed the peddler. Rev. O. V. Cook, formerly of Susque hanna, and now pastor of the Taber nacle Haptist church, in Ithaca, was recently wedded to Miss Julia Bennett, of Farnor. A PIG'S TAIL DISCUSSED. A Susquehanna county farmers' club recently discussed the subject of the usefulness and uselessness of a pig's tall, the orators consuming an entire evening. One side argued that the tail is as necessary as the letter p in pueu- Opposite Wyoming House. 4SStX THE DIFFERENCE. "Tell vour sister. Nellie, that I have been waiting In the parlor "You've kepi her waiting for six months." Life. (Copy right, monla, while the other side said that Its I il i u-i I hi 1 function and value lies in the fact that by the way It hangs can be determined whether the animal Is in good health or otherwise. If It is curled tiylit the pig is healthy; if not, the pig is sick and his food should be chanced and the veterinarian called In. The judges reserved their decision for two weeks, RAILROAD TID-1UTS. The Erie shops were closed on Thurs day afternoon and Friday. E. E. Loomis, of Elmira, superintend ent of the Tioga division of the Erie, lias been appointed to succeed the late R. T. Dodson as superintendtnt of the ISIosshurg Coal and Lumber company. Mr. Loomis is only III years old, and enjoys the distinction of being the youngest railroad superintetldeiU in the country.

MacEdward, of New York, succeeds S. T. Seeley as Erie passenger agent of the Susquehanna division. SOME NEWSPAPER MEN. Editor P. A. Harrett, the Elmira Tele gram's able and alert Scranton rep resentative, is a born newspaper man. He knows news when he sees It, and when he writes he says something. In all of its many editions tlie Telegram has no more bright und readable page than the one written in Scranton. Hon. Amos J. Cummings Is a stand ard authority on sporting matters. He is .1 star writer on pugilistic subjects. Editor James T. Dullois, of the In ventive Age, of Washington, received an invitation to serve on tlie Inaugural committee, but private business pre vented his acceptance. Mr. DiiUoIk has a summer residence and much leal estate in Hallstead. A PASSING Ci LANCE. Pastors of small churches are usually shunters, and the ticket agent it the small railroad station almost invariably owns the toad. Ever notice it? Tlie man with a cutter and u good imagination is enjoying the slim sledin'. Pessimists as well as optimists had their stockings hanging handy on Christmas i Ve. Now fur '!)7 resolutions and New Year bills. No matter, says a close observer, how much he loves his wife, a man who spends much of his time in the house cannot help pitying the hired gill. One cannot place implicit ronlldence in n Sunday sc hool census, taken Just before Christmas. tircat Rend has a widows' club, the purpose of which is to induce the Im migration of eligible widowers to that borough. The members also keep post ed in the current gossip. RATTLESNAKES 1IY THE WHOLE SALE. Pete Crandall, of Oleat Pend town ship, has captured alive this season over two hundred rattlesnakes, the largest collection ever'brouglif togeth er at one time. II" has them in an im mense cage. He captured them early in the spring, when they were leaving their dens for the. season, und when, it is claimed, they are the most deadly, owing to the long time He ir poison has lain undisturbed in tlie reservoir at the base of the fungs. Crandall atlirms that the fangs still remain in one of the snakes in the cage?, yet he goes in among them und handles the snakes with impunity. The din made by their rattles when he enters the cage is nl most deafenins. Some of the snakes ure of enormous size. Crandall has re fused an offer of :!00 for the collec tion. SLICES OF NEWS.

A Hungarian family at Rratidt owned a pet cat. It wus a very dear and near member of the household One day of last week it sudde'lly disappeared, and a search of several days was unsuccess ful. There was mourning and deep grief In the camp. On Sunday th" Hun garian discovered the cat frozen In the ice In the creek. The cat was sawed out i; ml the bloc k wus carried Into the house and placed behind the stove. In nn hour the ice had disappeared and the stilt remains of the cut were taken tenderly up. Koine Hungarian brandy was poured into the throat of the de parted and the Hungarian and his fam ily retired for the night. Refore day light on Monday there was a great noise in the kitchen, nnd the Hungarian awoke to find tlie cat on the tnble, de vouring n pound of liver. There wns jubilation in Hungary. The cat had come back. WAYSIDE OI.EANINOS. The marriage of E. J). Rradley, of Deposit, and Miss Lizzie Alieain. of Susquehanna, will oc.-ur on Wednesday.

Like John Brown's body, Maceo's will moulder into dust, but his soul will go inarching on, and Cuba's cause will march with it to glorious victory. When did the cause of liberfy ever fall ? WHITNEY. AFFECTED BY THE ATLAS. Another Western Hank Is Obliged to Make nn Assignment. Chicago. Dec. 2. As a result of the voluntary liquidation of the Atlas Na tional bank of this city, William M. and John S. Van Nortwick, who held 404 shares of stock In the bnnk and were borrowers therefrom to the amount of $300,000, made nn assignment today to the Equ liable Trust company, of Chi cago, who took possession of the Van Nort wick's bank, at Ratavla, this state, today. The failure involves the entire Inter ests of the Van Nortwicks, whose esti mated wealth, according to their last statement, is $2."fln,000, often estimated at three times that amount, and repre senting besides the Van Nortwick bank and other property at Ratavla, large manufacturing interests. The total liabilities will probably be near $2,000, 000. The articles of assignment, three in number, were filed in the Kane county court at Geneva. William and J. S. Van Nortwick each assigned as individuals and the two as a company. The Interests of the Van Nortwlck's are large and diversified. The Van Nortwlck's probably ore the most extensive paper manufacturers in the west, and the ramifications of their business extend all over the west ern country. Had it not been for the spreading out In this direction, It Is thought, the crash would have been avoided. In Ratavia so much real es tate is owned by them that people are ofter heard to remark, "The Van Nort wlck's own Ratavla." Resides the brick block in which the bank is located, erected at a cost of $40,000, and other real estate, they own 400 acres of farm land there, valued at $50,000. Among their possessions are also thousands acres of pine lands In Wisconsin. Baltimore Merchant Assign. Raltlmore. Dec. 29. L. Snellcnberger & Sun. leading dry goods merchants of South Raltlmore, made an assignment to day. Liabilities, lOu.ucu; assets about the same amount. Pressure of creditors and slow collections caused the suspension. Virginia Bank Fails. Roanoke, Va., Dee. 29.

MARKETS AND STOCKS Wall Street Review. New York, Dee. 21. The eurly dealing nt the Stock Exchange were character ized by extreme dullness and the fluctua tions, save lii a very few Instances, were unimportant. Yet the lack of business did not prevent juices from moving up moderately, the only notable exception having been Delaware am! Hudson, which declined 2's. Reading was also weak and declined about a point. In the meantime the general list showed a riling tendency, and during the afternoon speculation de veloped a very firm tone. .The market ruled on a higher plane nnd an advanco of lu2'4 per cent, followed.
