A Mysterious Death.
Frank Stevenson, a colored youth, j
of Williamsport, went fishing one day
jast week with a companion, who, \
upon the approach of a thunder
storm, went home, leaving Stevenson
alone. When Stevenson did not re.
turn in the evening a search was in- j
stituted and kept up during the night.
The folowing morning he was found
dead standing upright in a hollow
tree, in which he had doubtless taken
refuge from the storm. A coroner's j
jury was summoned and decided that
he was killed by lightning, as no signs
of violence were visible and every. \
thing indicated that during the severe
storm a flash of lightning had struck
near the tree, and he had been killed
by the shock.

wound is severe, painful and danger

A Strange Tail.
Mr. Ueo. Cross is the proud possessor
of a valuable thorough-bred llolstein
cow who was likewise imbued with
the idea of her importance which
caused her to think that there should
be no flies on her. So one day while
keeping this resolution she switched
her tail so violently that coming in
contact with a barbed wire fence it
was caught and broken off short;
and thereby hangs the tale. This
cow which had previously delighted
her owner by giving five gallons of
excellent milk daily, now only pro
duces a single gallon. Mr. Cross is
much worried over the accident ami
is quite at loss to know what can take '
theplace of an appendage of such evi.
Shepherd College.
This school will be opened the sec
ond week in September with the same
faculty as last year. Prof. Bush will
be on hand early in the month. Mr.
Miller is now having things straight
ened up inside of the building. A
number of applications have been re
ceived from new pupils and it is be
lieved that the school will open with
its usual number of students.
The erection of the town hall and
the noise attending it will be a good
deal of annoyance and inconvenience
to students and teachers, but it is
now unavoidable.
