Hopkins have purchased the 41'0-Bcre lease which em braces the old Joslyn pro erty, near Stewart Hun, and which lies partly in Forest and partly in Venango counties. The property has 24 producing wells and the new owners expect to begin drilling othera at once. The Woman's Reliof Corps of this place is acking a barrel for the Memo rial Moment Brook villn this week, and desire to inform all who care to contrib ute canned goods oi any kind, that they may leave same at Hopkins' store either to-dav or to-morrow, where proper at tention will be given them. Elinor Alfonso, the seven-niorithR' old child of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Al baugh.of Kelkltville, died ou the 2d Inst., and the funeral services were con ducted in the Free Methodist church by Rev. A. II. M. Zahniser, Tuesday mom ing at 11 o'clock. The remains were in terred in i ho German Hill cemetery. Tne Marienvilln Express believes there may be some developments in the case of O F. Widdcfield, who lost bis life as u result of a drunkon carousal at that place a couple or weeks ago, and says "it will probably be left to tlio con it and jury to decide whether Widdell'eld's death was accidental or whether a case ot inur der." Poultry fanciers and ail others Inter ested in chickens and pet stock of all kinds should keep in mind the second annual exhibit of the Forest County Poultry, Pet Stock and Horticultural Association, which will be held in this place Dec. 22 to 20, inclusive.

The l&ignatures are aiterwards found on notes payable to an innocent holder. W. E. Lamey, on the Milton farm five miles from Oil City, on the State mail, will have a public sale to-morrow Thursday, which ought to interest lum bermen or others who who are looking for heavy draught horses. Among the lot will be offered a pair of six-year-old horses whose combined weight is 3,200, and a pair of aged draught horses weigh ing 2,!I00. Other ai tides consist of heavy harness, boiler wagon, lumber waicons. etc., calculated for heavy hauling. When you get a catalogue from a big mail order house, iust look it over and see what they will pay you lor your pro dure; also investigate and see what their terms of credit a:e in case you do not have ready cash : how much they will giyf toward the keeping up of the side' walks; just write them and sen bow ninrh they will give toward the erection of a church ; how much they will live to assist the poor. After you have done this and received a reply see if your home merchant won't do as well. diaries K. Bowman, the new Sheriff- eloct of Clarion county, ran well up with the balance of the Domncratlo ticket in his county, although experiencing some factional nppnsltisn in the ranks. His majority is about four hundred, and as that is sulllcleut In an off year, his many friends in this section are pleased over his success. A minister in a sermon on a model home, hits the nail on the head whon he says; "Better let that boy wear out the pattern of the parlor carpet than to send him to the devil's school in the street where be will soon learn to trample on your heart." The boy who doesn't feel easy aud comfortable at home is going to find some place where he can have some measure of freodoin. Miss Hazel Jamieson, who visited friends here the past summer, writes her aunt, Mrs. F. Wenk, that she has been appointed piano accompanist al the State ustitutlon for the Blind, at Columbus, Ohio, and entered upon her duties about wo weeks ago. The institution has about r(K) students at present, and the selection of so young a lady as Miss Jamieson for such an important post speaks well for her accomplishments as a musician. Court, with President Judge Llndsey and Associates Crawford anil Dotlerer on the neiich, sat in special session for the hearing of two equity suits on Monday and Tuesday of this week. The first case heard was that of McArtbur. trustee, vs. I'lio Tionesta Gas Co., which was closed yesterday morning, when the case of Welch vs. Clough, an ejectment mil, was taken up and closed in the afternoon. Judge Llndsey took the papers in both vases and will render bis decision later. The first Free Methodist quarterly meeting of the Mayburg aud Kellettville circuit, for this conference year will be held at Mayburg. Nov. 20-22. District Elder Rev. J. S.

The order of services will be as follows: Preaching, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings at 7:30; love feast, Sabbath morning at 0:30, ful- owed by preaching at 11, after which a communion service will be held. A most cordial invitation is extended to all. A. H. M. ahniser, pastor. "lie is a bright young man, able and competent, but tbey had to let him go be cause he couldn't let the booze alone," How olten this expression is heard, and how heavily freighted it is with signifi cance to the young man of whom it is said. There are thousands of poor discon solate, discouraged men, scattered all over the country, who might to-day have becu occupying comtortablesituatlous on the sunny side of Easy street, had it not been necessary earlier in life for some body to "let them go." Blizzard. The 84th convention of the Christian Endeavor Local Union (comprising the societies of Oil City and vicinity) will be held at the First Presbyterian church Oil Cily, on Friday, Nov. 13. Opening ses sion at 2:4a p, in., and evening session at 7:45. C.J.Crawford, the President, announces an interesting and varied pro gram. Among those listed lor brief ad' dresses are Rev. R. W. Illingworth, of Tionesta; Rev. Arthur Grelbor, of Titus vlllo; Rev.S. A. Cornelius, Oil City; Rev. K. B. Beattie and Dr. Maurice Pen field Fikes, Franklin. Lettuce will prevent smallpox. At least that is tli 3 conclusion of Medica1 Talk, a magazine that enjoys a high rep utation among students of h., giene. Smallpox is a scorbutic disease and rages during the winter season when the poor people are deprived of vegetable foods. Celery and onions are also good for the same purpose, aud people who eat freely of the latter will throw off the smallpox ger ii when exposed to it. Medical Talk declares without hesitation or reserve, that the free use of lettuce will prevent smallpox. It is a thousand times better thau vaccinatum. It has no liabilities, like vaccination, to produce other diseas es, ir lettuce will oo tne business, uy an means let us have lettuce. -As a result of a "boxing contest" that was pulled off in the rooms of the Cen tennial club, at Franklin last Friday night, Millls Kingsley, one of the partici pants, is dead, having been hit on the ugular vein. His antagonist, Clarence Doolittle, is missing. Death resulted about six hours alter the fight was ended, the dead man Laving knocked his antag onist out in the third round. There is consternation among those who attended the unfortunate affair, as tbepiobabililies aro they will be held as accessories, or as aiders and abettors of a prize fight. The affair is said to baye proved the death knell to prize fighting in Venango coun ty, whore the disgraceful diversion seems to have gained considerable foothold In past few years. The sale of the Tionesta Mantel Man ufacturing plant was practically consum mated on Monday of thl? week, the pur chasers being the D, Gale Company, of Warren, Pa., the consideration we under stand being $t5,000. The new people who will hereafter conduct the works have for lotne time been engaged in the manu factuie of veneered work in Warren, and have eve employed a force of 30 to 40 men, but having a desire to extend their business and output they found the plant here was well suited to their ideas, and have accordingly made the purchase. They expect to employ at least 50 men bore whon they get under proper head way, most of whom will be taken from our own citizenship. It will be good mu sic to hiar again the bum of machinery at this fine plant. The Superior Court has banded down a decision which affirmed an opinion of the Somerset county court, in a case where an officer was convicted of man slaughter, for having shot and killed a man for whom he had a warrant and who had escaped. The man was chaiged with a misdemeanor and the higher court and also the lower one ruled that the officer had no right to shoot a man evading an arrest who bad committed an olliense punishable with fine and imprisonment, and known as misdemeanors. It was however, stated by the higher court that an officer attempting an arrest for any of- fonso if he was attacked aud in danger of bodily harm, might defend him self to the extent of taking llfo. The ruling will have the effect ot making oil) cers charry of using their guns and of muking criminals bolder, thinks the Ti- tusville Courier.

The ability to s'jeak in public with ease and at tuesame time express one's thoughts clearly Is a rare accomplishment, yet positively val uable in all after life. We congratulate the class of 1904 on taking up the work so earnestly and adding to the progressive spirit of a blgb school life. The class of '03 originated the Alumni organization, the class of '04 the Literary organization. What about the next class? We trust their movements may also be onward. jHayburg. F. K. Brown and wife go to Pittsburg this a. 111. J. G. Richards, wife and Ralph tnide a two days' visit to Hon. Peter Berry, near Plummer. Report a good time. We miss the Hon. Peter from Balllown. It was stirring times when be lived there and the Howe and Ball town leases were pouring out rivers of oil, and it was no small part tbat he took in the develop ment of the Balltown field. Humor hath it, and I believe it is true, tbat tne open ing of this immense pool of oil was large ly due to his peisistence and the natural Herman hang-on. You only need to look him in tb face to see the bull-dog tenac ity, the never-let go till victory is as sured. Iu this case the victory was some thing wonderful the production made things lively at Porkey, Balltown and Mayburg, the pay roll of three or four different companies swelled every month until it reached a scattering of say f25,000 to (30,000 a month, and while the boys were enjoying the good things that could be purchased with their salaries, old mother earth seemed to laugh and grow merry at the thought that she bad count less millions of oil, gas and other things stored away below the surface and hid den from us. Well, old Forest county has had some lively days. In the Gusher field, where the Hon. J.J. Halgbt is now pumping out bis remainder at f 1.92 per barrel. The Balltown field, which so far bas lasted 21 years, and is still producing largely, theu the field around Tionesta at the headwa ters of Little Hickory and Tubbs Run, and the end is net yet. Other fields will be struck until for its size Forest county will rank high for its oil production. We are about to loose the McManigle & Brown bookkeeper, C. C. Smith. He ex pects to go West sometime this month, aud in the spring return for a few years at school, Clyde is pretty well up on the education line now. To see bis writiug you would hardly think he needed any more schooling, but our Individual am bition should be satisfied no matter what it costs. Job says "Where shall wisdom be found?" and the answer is, "The fear of the Lord, tbat is wisdom." I believe It. C. C, with all of his ambition lor a b'gber education, has the fear of the Lord with him. Our old friend Orion Siggins passed through town last week, goiug to Ball- town to do some surveying. He looked just as hearty as ever. Call again. Mrs. Thomas Gilford has returned from a visit to ber friends at Newmans ville. This week I saw a most vicious looking bear trap over at the S. & T. R. R. depot. It struck me as most awiully cruel sport. There is something manly in hunting with a gun, so tbat bruin is quickly put out of his misery, but a trap with all its agony Is certainly a relic of days gone past. How would we like it? Miss Zahniser and her cousin of your town was visiting with Rev. and Mrs. Zaliniser this week. A. M. Hunter aud Lewis went to Oil City on Monday to see about Lewis' an kle, which has bothered bim since it was crushed on the mill last winter. The doctors advised leaving it alone fur the present. Wm.
