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.

months and 0 days, and leaves a husband
and three small children, one brother

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

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

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.

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.

From tho Chapin, S. C, News : Early
in the spring my wife anil I wore taken
with diarrhoea and so sovere wero tho
pains that we called a physician who
prescribed for us, but his medicines (ail
ed to give any relief. A friend who had
a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
aud Diarrhoea Remedy, on hand gave
ea.'h ol us a dose and wo at once felt the
elloets. I procured a bottle and before
using the entire contents we wero entire
ly cured. It is a wonderful remedy and
should lie found in every household. II.
