Vest Virginia, Thursday, April
There is probably no town in West
Virginia that has more of interest attaching
to its local history than Shepherdstown.
Easily the oldest town in the
State?it was settled about 1732, maybe
as early as 1712, and incorporated in 1762
?there have been many interesting and
curious happenings in the annals of this
ancient burg. Observer has notes to
many matters that he hopes to write about
from time to time and preserve as local
history in the columns of the Register.
What a pity that with each generation
from the beginning there was not some
reliable historian who recorded the events
of interest and the curious details oft^wn
One of the oldest buildings of the town
is the big, rambling house on Main street
owned and occupied by Mrs. M. L. Herrington
and her niece, Mrs. Julia Miller,
and her nephew, L. C. Little. This
i bu'iding, so long used as a hotel, is probably
150 years old. Mrs. Herringtonsays
that it was used as a rendezvous for soldiers
in the Revolutionary War, was a
barracks during the war of 1812, and during
the Civil War it was also occupied
from time to time by soldiers, Union men
and Confederates alternating in its possession.
The house was originally built
of heavy logs, filled in with clay and
bricks, but it has been weatherboarded
for these many years. Additions were
made to the original structure, hence there
are peculiar steps and stairways leading
from one part to the other.
Joseph Entler, Mrs. Herrington'sfather,
bought this property in 1808 from Charles
Harper and Levi Gooding, and besides
the building, owned the ground on which
now stand the Episcopal Church and the
residence of the editor of the Register.
On the alley was a large stone stable, in
which were stalls for 25 horses. During
the Civil War the soldiers took from time
to time the seasoned timbers from this
stable and used them for firewood. The
frame woik was thus weakened, and one
night the roof fell in from the weight of a
heavy snow, and now there's nothing left
but the ruined stone walls. These same
vandals also tore out the mantels and
wooden partitions in the house, leaving
it a sad wreck at the end of the w ar. Mr.
Entler and his family did not live there
during the war, having moved to Wingard
Cottage, now the home of Mr. and Mrs.
T. H. Davis. A man by the name of
Thompson kept hotel in the building during
a part of the war period, and it did
not bear a very savory reputation during
his occupancy. At least one foul murder
plot was hatched there.
A hundred years or more ago this old
Entler property was a famous tavern.
No railroads then stretched their steel
bands across the country, but all transportation
was by road or river. Shepherdstown
was on the highway from
Kentucky and Tennessee and other southern
sections to Baltimore and Philadelphia.
The Pack Horse Ford w as the best
crossing place on the Potomac in many
miles, and so this road was one of the
most popular. The Great Western Hotel,
as Mr. Entler called his inn, was a
favorite stopping place for the wagoners
who drove splendid four-horse and sixhorse
teams, bringing farm products and
other goods from the South and carrying
back great loads of merchandise from the
cities. Sometimes a dozen big teams
would put up here for the night, and
there would be merry times. Trials of
skiH or strength would test the mettle of
the teamsters, while chicken fighting and
reckless betting occupied the attention of
the sportily inclined, to say nothing oi 1
gambling on the sly, sometimes for heavy 1
stakes. 1
Joseph Entler was not only an enter- i
prising hotel-keeper?he was a busy m in
in other affairs. He owned a couple of I
brick yards, one of them being where the
old manufacturing shops now stand, and <
he used a novel method of notifying the
men when it was time to quit work. At <
dinner time and supper time he would I
run a red flag to the top ofa pole fastened i
above the roof of the house, and the
workmen, keeping one eye in that direction,
lost no time in heeding the signal.
Mr. lintlcr also conducted cooper-shops
on the lot where now stand the homes of |
Mrs. Gittii gsand Mrs. Billmyer. He was ,
interested in a cigar manufactory and a ,
shoe-maker's shop; ran a store; with |
Mr. McAnly conducted the Shepherds- (
town Register for several years; and <
owned a hay scales that was located on ?
the site of the home ot the editor ot the <
Register. On one occasion a traveler
stopping at the hotel took a liking to Mr. <
Entler's dog "Watch," and when he left ]
the host gave him the dog as a present, t
He took "Watch" to Kentucky with him, (
but in a few weeks the dog left his new (
master and found his way back to Shpp- ,
herdstown, turning up at the hotel foot- j
sore and lean and weary, but wagging (
his tail in joy at being home again. It is f
known that he swam several good-sized j
rivers on his homeward journey.
The big lot adjoining the tavern was t
the usual parking place for the wagons I
that stopped here over night in order that <
horses and drivers might rest. It was also <
a fine place for circuses, and frequently <
traveling shows would put up their tents I
and hold their exhibitions here. On one J
occasion while a circus was showing to a
large audience a fierce storm came up
and a gale of wind blew the tent over.
There w3s great confusion women
screamed, men shouted and children cried,
and a panic prevailed. During the height
of the trouble somebody yelled that the
| lion was loose, and this made confusion
I worse confounded. Persons on the outside
ot the tent tried to get to their relaI
nn IHa mciHp a-hilA thi? iinfnrtunQlpc
under the canvas struggled with might
and main to get out. Many were bruised
and scratched and frightened almost out
of their wits, but nobody seems to have
been seriously hurt, nor did the lion devour
On another occasion when a circus
came to town and showed on this lot
one of the elephants sickened and died,
leaving behind her a baby elephant partly
grown. The dead beast was buried on
the lot, and it is said that the young ele
13, 1916.
phant whined and cried and gave unmistakable
evidences of its grief. And a
curious after event is reported. Years (]
afterward a circus again came to town, tt
with an elephant soberly marching along a,
the Kearneysville pike with the wagons s\
3nd other circus impedimenta. As it ni
turned into Main street at the Byers cor- h
ner the elephant raised its trunk into the w
air, broke into a lumbering run and dashed tt
down the street to the circus lot, bolted 0|
through the gate, ran on the place where
its mother had been buried, and rolled n
over and over on the grave, giving vent C(
to groans that showed how well it re- |e
membered the death of its mother. This tx
incident happened somewhere between te
seventy-five and a hundred years ago,
according to the best information we can fc
gather?Mrs. Herrington says that it oc- ai
curred before she was born, the story p,
being told her by her father?and just last js
week it was confirmed in part by the $t
discovery of the bones of the long-buried 0|
elephant. Observer had been told that
the elephant had been buried on the lot c,
on which stands the residence of the b<
editor ot the Register, but it proved to be jr
a hundred teet to the east. In the yard aj
of the dwelling ow ned for many years by hi
the late Henry M. Loyns, recently pur- p,
chased by George F. Turner from Ed- s,
ward L. Reinhart, and at present occu- th
pied by Prof. A. D. Kenamond, workmen ^
started last week to dig a cistern. About ^
three feet from the surface they dug into 7
one end of the pit in which the elephant re
had been buried, and uncovered some of b<
its bones. The unusual size otthe bones
puzzled them for a time, but some one st
recalled the story of the elephant?and U[
the mystery was solved. The entire d<
skeleton is undoubtedly there, though it ar
was not all uncovered, as it was to one th
side of the excavation for the cistern.
The Register museum has two of the th
large leg bones as unquestioned evidence jn
of a story that has long been told, but ^
which was often regarded with doubt by rj|
the present generation. Although buried |j,
for almost a hundred years, the bones are af
still in a good stale of preservation. The bj
finding of the bones has brought to light Cl]
some interesting stories. Harvey H.
Pendleton says that the elephant's teeth j-j
were taken out before it was buried, and st,
one of them afterward came into posses- K|
sion of his grandmother, Mrs. Margaret Cr
White, who gave it to the late Dr. John
Reynolds. It is also said that the ele- ar
phant was skinned and its hide was tan- bl
ned in Line's lanyard, some three or four Ai
years oeing requircu lur mc prutcsa. Kr
Are there any other contributions to ed
this most interesting story ? If there are, in
let Observer know about them and he
will give them to the readers of the Keg- ru

Veteran Odd Fellow. 0{
Cookeville, Tenn., March 9 ?"Uncle ah
Jurdon" Huddleston, who lives about
two miles southeast of this city, and who
enjoys the distinction of being the oldest ;
Odd Fellow in the United States, was se
initiated as a member of Mount View Sp
lodge of this city forty-two years ago the an
present month. "Uncle Jurdon" is now m<
in his ninety-fifth year and is in the en- mi
jovment of splendid health. His mind is p|(
clear, and he can walk a mile without ex- th<
periencing fatigue. He has been a con- bn
sistent member of the Methodist Church pr
for eighty-five years, and during the forty- v0
two years in which he has been an Odd n{
Fellow his interest in the order has never 0v
waned. He has been prominently identified
with this county ever since its organization,
and he enjoys the confidence and
esteem of all who know him.?Nashville

Our farmers have no trouble to get seed A

hat back-breaking job of thinning corn
rould be lessened. The Ohio boys' corn

ows and 2 feet apart in row, with three
grains to hill, and raised 100 bushels of

ertilizer on an acre and plowed the corn
our times. He got the prize.
Lancaster City has put up a big sign at

A Tricky Trap?For A Bear.
Most wild animals, w rites Prince Sarath

id obstinate, but for sheer brainless obtinacy
in ihe face of opposition there is
o animal like the Himalayan bear. It

The w ily natives of India have observed
lat trait in his character, and from it have
jntrived a trap to catch him. They sect
a tree with a suitable horizontal
ough. At a point on the bough about
n or twelve feet from the fork they fasn
a bait likely to attract the bear?honey,
ir example, or goat's flesh. Then from
mother bough above that one they susfnd
a heavy block of stone. The rope
so attached to the upper bough that the
one hangs between the bait and the fork
the tree.
The bear scents the bait from a distance,
jmes to the tree, sees the food on the
3ugh, and climbs up the trunk of the
ee. Reaching the bough, he walks
ong it to get at the bait. But suddenly
: notices the obstacle in his way, and
ashes it aside with his paw. The stone
vings out of the way for a second ;
len it swings back and hits the bear on
le paw. With a growl of irritation, the
rar pushes it aside more violently,
he stone swings away again; then it
turns with greater force, and hits the
far on the chest.
With a snarl of rage the bear gives the
one a tremendous thrust, and sends it
a into the air in a wide curve. Then
Dwn comes the stone in a similar curve,
id hits the bear a thumping whack on
ie ribs.
Most animals would desist after that
ird blow; not so the bear, lie is now
a perfectly mad rage ; and a beat is a
)od boxer. He hits out with his paws,
glit and left, and sends the stone hurtlg
forward in a still w ider curve. Then,
ter a few seconds, the stone comes
ick and hits the bear a terrific "upperit"
on the jaw.
The bear is roused to white-hot fury,
e thinks an enemy is hiding behind the
one,?as an enemy might do in the june,?and
he is determined to reach that
