, Durtiee Ogden is no more;
he died April 7, 1893.
Little dirt we think the last
time we met and shook the hand
of our cordial and highly es
teemed schoolmate and friend,
that it would be our sad and
solemn task to review his short
but successful career with muffled
pen and ir. mourning.
Mr. Ogden was born in the
year 186r, of one of the most
highly respected and christian
families in our community. He
prepared himself for the work of
tewshing school. Obtained means
and attended the West Virginia
Normal and Classical Academy,
at Buckhannon. He afterwards
attended the W. Va. Business
College at Clarksburg, and
graduated with highest honors.
He has taught the home school
at Prospect Valley for some
years, but the death angel
claimed him for its victim, but
not before he was prepared. He
was converted last winter and
Uved a happy christian life until
God called him home. Today
he is happy with his friends in
I heaven. Ho is dead but still he
lives in the hearts and minds of
all who knew him. He was
young, -but never was there a
nobler, manlier man."

At this the colonel called a council

ordered a smoke to be made on an

he was making them perform a large
black and white torn cat appeared and
went to eyeing the lively rata. Johnny
tied his little team to the prop when he
heard" the cans and the torn cat aat on
a tie with hl? tall across the rail,
worked his smellers and glared at the
rats. While he was watching the hop
ping animals the wheel of a car cut off
his tall two inches from his body, and
be Instantly went yowling and spitting
toward the mule barn. The cat's an
tics made Johnny roar. "But he won't
watch my rata again very won," he
said. Soon the tripe stopped coming.
It was the quitting hour, and Johnny
turned the four rata loose, and said to
the Tisltor:

great friend of |
rain, lie is four
Iw .years of j
age, nnd lie can
handle the biggost and most vicious
mine rots just as lie pleases without j
being blltnu. No one else in the mine
can do It, nnd the miners nnd mule
drivers assert that Johnny has a mys
terious power over the four-logged
pests of the mine. Johnny never hurts I
or kills a rut, although every other j
laborer In tins mine slays every rut In
gots a chnnce to, ami the foreman of j
the tnule burn sets all sorts of traps
for tho rata, anil keeps an army of cats
to prey on them. It Is Impossible to
exterminate the mine ra'.f. und Johnny
Roche says lie 1.4 glad of it. Iieeause he
would be lonesome if all the rats were
killed The rats get into tho nilno In
bales of hay for the mules nnd by
backing down the till! ts'rs of the shaft
They arrive und breed faster than tho 1
men nnd cats can kill Ihein. and
Johnny is cheerful whenever u now
hatch comes.
A man fond of oddities fonnil out tho
other day whon'lio was I owe roil into
the mine that Johnny Hoohe's Way of
catching rats with bis bore hands was
very interesting. As soon as there
was au interval between trips Johnny
placed bis lamp on a chunk of coal at
tho side of the gangway and crawled
on his hands anil knee* into a chamber
a few feet away, la a minute or so i
big gray rat hopped along tho top of
tho gob, between Johnny nnd the
light, und the noxt instant Johnny's
right hand shot out and caught the rat
by the bark of the neck. lie brought
tho rnt oat to the lamp to let tho
visitor see It ami then ho looked In Its
mouth, smoothed Its fur and held it up
by the tail. Atiipof cars was com
log, and Johnny slipped the rat Into
lib coat piiiiket, unhooked the link,
its nook and drove (t back and forth in
the dim lijjht When the lad heard
tho noxt trip rumbling throqgli the
mine toward liiin ho fastened tho wick
to a prop and attended to his duties.
The rat didn't offer to yank away or
to bite the wick in two, but it hopped
about u little and then It sat upon its
bind quarters, gazed at Johnny und
aquealcil as though It wanted lilin to
come and fondle It
"I'll catch another rat now and
harness it with this one," said the boy,
and again ho crept Into the reeess and
faced tiie lamp. The rat danoed
around the pro"p, bnt didn't break
loose, nnd Jnst Iwfore tho next trip
eame Johnny nabbed another big rat
and put it in his pocket As soon as
the trip was gone Johnny sat down on
a tie and let the seeohd rut runoverhia
lap without touching It Tho rat might
have jumped away, but it seemed to lio
under a spell, anil when It had capered
across the boy's legs a few times It
crawled Into his coat and snuggled np
us If It was going to take n uni>. Pretty
soon Johnny took the rnt out und
stroked it and showed its teeth to tho
visitor. Then he held it up by the tail,
and it curled np and stucl?ita nose be- |
tween the lad's thumb and finger.
Jleatnvhllo the other rat was squeal
ing for Johnny to como and take it,
and the yonng rat tamer got some
more strands, hitched the two together j
and drove them up and down too track.
"Now I'll hide these ruts in my ooat j
and catch two more," said tho boy.
Another trip came Just then, anil when
Johnny had unhooked It, he pulled off
his eout, bnndled the rats up In It and
crawled In tho hole. He had to como
out three times to attend to the ears
before he got the next rat, but In twen
ty minutes he caught another and
hitched them togother as before. While
