Solomon Slaughter, the well known old colored man was found dead in his bed on Wednesday morning. Re hud been on the street apparently in his usual health the day before. Sol had for many years driven the bus for Lashley and later for Rixon. He seemed to like the job and kept ut it until he became too .weuk and old to continue the work. As tile bus was going along Spring street the day be fore lie died, Sol stopped and looked at it till it passed him. The writer re marked to Jeff that Sol was thinking of his old driving days. His steady look of interest seemed to talk, but said nothing. That night Sol was at his long home. Re wus born in Virginia und was u slave until the war. Re escaped to the North during the war and for many years resided in McConnellsburg. From lHHil to the date of his death he resided ill Everett. lie was a quiet, well-behaved citizen against whom no harm has ever been charged. Poor old Sol! Farewell. Everett Press. Wm. L. Moseby, on the 2d Inst., sold thirty-one head of fat cattle, ull reared on his own farm in Wells Val ley, to Drought Rrothcrs of I"vlstown, Pu. In addition to these, enough more were purchased from other Wells Vul ley farmers to make out a large drove. Tills shows up for the the enterprising farmers of that splendid little valley.

Daniel W. Cromer, of Fort Lit tleton aud Max Sheets, of McCon nellsburg, are spending their odd hours iu reducing to subjection wild, untamed bucking bronchos that they obtained from a drove a few days ago, at Faunettsburg. It will likely be a triumph of mind over no matter. Mr. Cromer purchased two and Max one of the animals with minds of their own. We have no rexrt from Fort Littleton up to date, but if Mr. Cromer's experience tallies with Max's it is highly probable by this lime that he regrets that he attended the Fannettsburg broncho sale. Everybody knows that Max Sheets delights iu run ning up against a high-mettled and obstreperous piece of horse flesh, but he is more than pleased with his recent purchase, which was never before restrained by even a halter. For days he has been trying theciviliztngiufluoneo of guy aud stay ropes and halters, ropes to keep him from going up, and ropes to keep him from coming down, and st ill more ropes to keep him within the bounds of an acre lot. On Monday lie took neatly a score of colored men, who had previously bidden an af fectionate adieu to their families, out to a Held to assist them in the turning process, and our inform ant tells us '"it rained niggers for about five minutes," after an un successful Wild West perform ance. The broncho's movements are so mercurial that one can scarcely get a snap shot with a ride. Till' KVl-RF.TT REPUBLICAN. The Everett Republican, which last week of all others failed to reach us by mail, appears giv atly changed in typographical appear ance and make-up and a change iu management. C. S. Clark, a former I Jed ford county boy, but more recently connected with a prominent newspaper iu Wiscon sin, takes charge of its editorial columns, iu connection with its founder, John C. Chamberlain. 1 1 i s now pu bl i si tod by Tl to 1 lv nib lican Printing Company. Doth Mr. Clark and Mr. Chamberlain are married to tho daughters f the kite lamented anil ti'leutedCol. John M. Bowman, under whoso tutelage they have evidently ac quired "the nose for news," aud tins development of other faculties essential to livo journalism. In looking over the columns of The Republican we find much to ad mire and little to condemn. It is as full of interesting, newsy mat ter as an egg is full of moat, and its advertising department exhib its a desire on tho part of the Company to present the state ments of the business men of Ev erett to the public in the most at tractive and artistic manner. We have watched with admiration tho growth of The Republican from its birth, nearly seven years ago, and noted with pleasure each suc ceodiug substantial improvement as this late one certaiuly is. It is now an eight-page paper. Wo wish the firm tho success their enterprise so justly merits. Amos Plossingor, of Del fast township, intends removing to tho old homo place in Brush Creek township, near Locust CI rove, now occupied by his father, Jacob Pies singer. His sou, Harry, residing at Locust Grove, will move on to his father's farm. Sauner Ray's house, near Big Cove Tannery, is Hearing comple tion. Sauner will have every thing handy, as ho is close, to church, school house and all things necessary for his moral aud phys ical welfare, Wo will tell why ho is getting his house in order at tho proper time. Loguo lless, of Old Belfast, has just completed a handsome resi dence that is very commodious and nicely locati 'd. When we vis ited him he was having it painted by an artist of much ability and taste. Even tho lloor got a coat of paint. But that is another story. now thi:y plastfri d. Ileu Franklin or Solomon or somebody else once said "Econo my is wealth," and no people so well appreciated the t ruth of that maxim so much as did the early settlers iu this county. If the people of the present day were to in alee as much money as they do, and spend as little as their worthy ancestors did, no poor tax would have to be paid, and printers woul 1 not got rich print ing sheriff side bills. Alex Patterson, of Ayr town ship lives on the "old Patterson farm" iu tho Cove. Part of the dwelling house iu which he lives was built perhaps a century and a half ago. Alex, iu making some repairs to the kitchen, removed some of the plastering, aud was struck by the method used to plaster walls iu those early days. They did not use plastering lath as is done now, requiring nails to fasten them. 0, no! They just made a lot of locust pins about two inches long and between a quarter and a half an inch square and sharpened the ends. Then with it hammer with a sharp beak and a poll they struck the logs I with the beak making a hole inlo j which they drove the pin allowing j it to stick out something more than an inch. The wall was just driven full of these pins which served to hold the plaster instead of lath as now used. So well did they answer the purpose that much of tho plastering of the room, done so many years ago, was iu as good condition an when first put on save ordinary wear. Jacob L. Hess, of Belfast town ship, is an authority on 'conns. Iu fact, when Mr. lless starts out on their trail, tho 'coons, like Davy Crocket's, generally come down. He invites tho McConnellsburg hunters of these nocturnal ani mals to call down that way aud enjoy some sport. David Harr is making some ex tensive improvements to and around his residence in Belfast township, such as weather-boarding, lie ha.-; it pleasant location. Levi Keel'er, who left Ayr township last spring to try his fortunes in Belfast, recently pur chased the entire stock and farm ing outfit of Elmer Johnston, and last Thursday moved back and took charge of the farm lately owned by Mr. Johustou. We are glad to note the chango of Mr. Keefer, aud wish him success. He served very efficiently several years on the Ayr township school board, and has iu other ways made his usefulness felt to tho citizens of the township. J. Elmer Johustou, who recent ly sold his farm in Ayr township to his brother Findlay, and also disposed of his personal proper ty, left the Cove Tuesday with his family to make their home in Al via, Iowa. Mr. Johustou and his family carry with them to their new homo tho best wishes of their mauy friends here. S. S. Hanu, of Ayr township, has recently had his pension in creased from twelve to fourteen dollars a month. Jetf Harris has moved into his new home tho Myers property which ho recently purchased in Ayr township. Lumber is on the ground for tho erection of a haudsome new front porch to the Fulton House. Tho Messrs Linn will do the work.
