It TIrere U great promise of a large fruit yield this season, but there will be no peaches In this lalltudo, scarcely a peach tree having escaped the ligors of the past winter, and there is not a peach blossom In sight any where. Apple blossoms are very abundant on almost all the trees, and full and rich looking. If they es cape tho Irest there will be au abundance of the fruit. An odd feature of tho return of the tan shoo to popular favor Is that the de mand liudi the manfacturers unprepared to meet it.

Tbe State aulhorltios having been in formed that an epidemic of rabies bad broken out among some cittle in Craw ford county, Dr. George B. Johnson, of Franklin, was sentout on a tour of in vestigation by Leonard Pearson, State Veterinary, last week : Dr. Jobson went to Titusville on Mon day and found the trouble bad been caused by a dog ; he began to follow tbe cluoand filially got to Eldred Centre. Here he (found that a stray mad dog had app' ared on May 2 and bit a cow belong ing to D. D. Delands. Following the clue be next found tbe dog had got to East Titusville, where he bit seven cows belonging tn Mrs. Abigail Duncan, and on the same day the dog was at Enter prise, whore ho bit a cow, a calf and a dog. In tbe afternoon tbe dog struck out for Pleasantvillo. Here be was overtak en by two men who carried guns and fol lowed tbe canine's trail from Enterprise to Pleasantville, whore they encountered him and be was shot. He bit two cows for a Mr. Paiker, at l'leasantville, before the men reached there. There was the greatest excitement all along the route that the dog took. Parkor at once shot bis cows, not knowing what the rasult might be if he did not dispose of them. Dr. Jobson visited al! the places on the trail of the dog and quarantined all the cattle. Tho dog that was bitten was killed. The piaciug of tho cattle lu quar antine prevents any disposition of tbem by any other person than Dr. Jobson, as he will watch the results. It may not be generally known, but according to a sup plemental act of assembly,' owners of cattle can lecover the tame as they an for sheep killed by dogs. Tne act reads : "A supplement to an act for taxation of dogs and protection of sheep. In addi tion to the application thereof lor pay ment of losses sustained by destruction and damage of sheep be applied for pay ment of horses, mules, cattle and swine bitten by a mad dog or mad dogs, and destroyed or necessary to be destroyed by reason thereof, said damages shall be as certained and recovered in tbe same man ner as provided in sections 3, 4 and 5 of said act. Passed April 11, 1001." Dr. Jobson will visit tbe places quar antined at tbe proper time to make fur ther investigation. Lieut. John Range. The Republican bad a pleasant call last Saturday from Mr. John Siggins, of Tidioute, who was attending to some business here and incidentally looking up a little of tbe history ot one of bis ancestral relations, Lieut, John Range, whose remains lie buried in Riverside cemetery, this place. He had with him a metal marker of neat design, which the D. A. R. society has adopted, and which be placed at the bead of the Revolution ary veteran's grave. Mr. Siggins left with us the following authentic history of Lieut. Range which he has been able to gather up after much labor and research: John Rauge, a lieutenant in the Revo lutionary War, and who served through the great struggle for iudependence, wai commissioned First Lieutenant of 5th company of 4th battallion, York couuty, Pa. malitia, April 5th, 177. Ho is justly to be called the first white setter eatt of tbe Allegheny in the present bounds of Forest county, Pa. He first came pros pocting to view the land and tben settled, establishing a farm at what is now Tio nesta. Tbis was iu tbe year 1817. He was anative of Pennsylvania, emigrating from Adams county. After tbe war was over he settled in Adams county where, being successful in business, be acquired considerable proqerty. For bis services in the Revolution be secured a land war rant taken out iu the name of Shollas Range, his eldest sou. Tbe lottery war rant for the land was number 511, dated May 15th, 1785, including 252 acres. In 1308 be exainiued the land with ether sol diers, and in IMG located with his family at Tionesta, Pa. Died at Kane Hospital. Mrs. Victor Wingard, of Kingsley twp., Forest county, died at the Kane hospital Thursday evening, May 19, 1004, about 6 o'clock, from heart failure. She had been ailing for some months, and about a week ago was taken by Dr. Detar and her husband to the Kane hospital where she was operated upon last Mon day. The operation appeared successful, but Thursday she was taken with violent vomiting which undid the work of the oberators, making It necessary for ber to go through the ordeal again which proved too much for her already weak heart. Mrs. Wingard sought the Lord in the revival services hold in the Buck Mills school house by Ktv. and Mrs. Zahniser last winter, soon alter she was taken sick. During her sickness she was bap tized by tbe pastor and received a clear conversion, Tbe funeral services were conducted at the home of Mrs. Carbaugh, of Buck Mills, a sistor of tbe deceased, Friday evening, and the remains were taken to Fisher, Pa., for interment. Mrsi Wingard was aged 37 years, 10 months and 0 days, and leaves a husband and three small children, one brother and two sisers to mourn her loss, besides numerous friends in the community who will miss her.

A sick busbaud On ber hands for years and quite a large family, she is the bread-winner tor them all. Joe Miller finished up his plastering and eh mney building and went home Thursday. Tbe heavy rains of tbe past week made a big flood in the Tionesta. Slides on the S. .t T. road delayed traffic for ono day only, although there was a big one at Lynch and others at Buck Mills and Kol lettville. The energy displayed by the officers and men of the road in keeping trains moving Is refreshing. The boys keep wide awake while the President, T. D. Collins, is away to Los Angeles, Cali fornia. Aslidoat tbe foot of "tho narrows" nearly upset a tank and tank-house on the Cook oil lease, necessitating the tear ing down and moving of the same to a place of safety. Mrs. Ilartman is on tho sick list. Four rigs left hsro about noon Thursday for Whig Hill to see Charley Richards, one of tbe Cook oil lease boys, married to Ethel Bruce. Charley's father tied tbe knot. They report a good time. A car load of 10, 12 and 21-luch sewer pipe came to Mayburg Friday for the road work. It has been thoroughly test ed iu this district and found to be good. Wh n properly put in it never clogs up, each flood cleaning it out. I can't under stand why road masters and commission ers will persist in putting iu wood water crossings when sewer pipe isso cheap and accessible. It's an old saw that says "the mills of the gods grind slow but very fine." I presume iu time they will grind all those old wood water-crossings, and the piople that put them in, to dust. Mork Anon. The "Flag Scrap" at State. It has been the custom each year at State Collegs for the freshman class to raise their class flag on tbe campus. The sophomores do their best to prevent tbis, for the winning nf this scrap means much to both classes. Should the sophomores succeed in tearing the flag down the de feated class will not be entitled to a class pennant during tboir entire college con rse. This year after much planning by the freshman secret commit t e, it was decid ed to raise the flag on the morning of May 12, Several messengers had been appointed by the committee, and, as soon as the pole was planted, they started out to awaken the freshmen and tell that the flag was up on the Beaver Field. The pole was raised at 2:30 o'clock a. in., aud in a short time the entire freshman class was around it stripped to the waist and ready for the "Sophs." About 150 fresh mon linked arms around the pole while 50 others stood by ready to break up the rushes or stop the "machines" that might be tried against them. The sophomores soon gathered and started the scrap by rushing upon tho freshmen, throwing paper sacks full ot flour and trying to use their first machine. This attempt, however, was defeated, but they soon rushed again and triod to pull down tho pole by the use of a large grappling hook. This plan failed as before, so the sopho mores then withdrew to rest for a short time. They next made a rush to break through the freshmen aud thus get to the pole. This rush was not successful, but the fighting continuod until seven o'clock when the sophomores withdrew and ac knwledged their defeat by giving the fre8lmi(.n class yell. The victorious freshmen responded by giving the soph omore yell and then grouped around tbe Hag pole for their picture. Thus ended the "scrap." Roy and John.
