THE WALNUT STREET SPOOK.
From the l'st authority we learn
that Walnut street lias a veritable
ghost. It is none of your common
ghosts that flit around graveyards at
uncanny hours, aud make no noise
and wear vapory clothes. The Wal
nut street spirit is somewhat of a sport.
He drives four pale horses which are
attached to a stylish black coach. lie
keeps his unearthly team in lienjamin
Shimer'h stable, and as the court
house clock tells the hour of twelve he
emerges amidst rolling thunder and
Hashes of lightning. A draped collln
Is displayed as he wheels his outfit
up along a fiery cloud, into a brilliant
galaxy, and then dashes madly toward
the Aurora llorealis. Kvery story, be
It spook, or otherwise, should have a
moral, and the moral of this one is
that tlie Walnut street kids should be
in their beds before 0 o'clock, and that
some other ones had better guard well
their actions or they will fetch up in
OI K HUNTERS.
Scott Unger and his brother Mayn
ard, of Ayr township, each succeeded
in killing a line wild turkey last week.
W. Scott Hrant, has killed six nice
ones this season. He was lucky enough
to bring two tine ones down with one
Daniel Trille, of Ayr township, shot
a thirteen pound wild turkey, on Sat
urday last. It was a beautiful gob
bler and quite a crowd of sportsmen
young and old took a longing look at
It as he passed through town.
Ed. Simpson, fourteen year old son
of B. F. Simpson, of Thompson town
ship, was taking a hunt all to himself
last Saturday, when ho suddenly came
on a Hock of wild turkeys. It keeps
an old hunter busy not to lose his
head under such circumstances; but
when it is one's first experience, it Is
not easy to guess just what will hap
pen. Hut lid leveled his gun on the
Hock, blazed away, then threw his gun,
and ran toward the turkeys. He found
that he had wounded a very large one,
and, when he got hold of it, there was
quite a tussle to settle the question
whether Ed should get away with the
gobbler or the gobbler get away with
Kd; but Ed succeeded in capturing the
bird, finding his gun and getting home
with his prize, much to his own sat
isfaction and that of his mother.

way, went ahead with his official work.
On Wednesday he visited some of the

A SCHOOL CLOCK.
The public schools of Bedford are
now run by electricity. Head what the
"Gazette" says about a clock that the
school directors have just had placed
In the principal's olllce:
"It Is connected with electric, bells
throughout the school building and
will ring them any minute of the day.
It calls the school In tho morning; It
rings the tardy bell; It rings tho warn
ing bell for recess; it gives the signal
to march out at recesses; it gives the
warning signal for dismissal at noon;
It rings again for the children to march
out. It does the same thing in the af
ternoon. "It gives the signal for the change
of classes; it calls to time teachers who
are tempted to overun tho recess peri
od; It reduces the work of the school
to a system; It turns off the current In
tho evening and on aguin In the morn
ing. It turns It off Friday evening
and on again Monday morning."
The attention of our McConnellsburg
board, who are ever on the alert to
take advantage of a good thing, is
called to the above. In addition to
the many good things the Bedford
clock can do, we suggest that ours
have a bell to ring for directors to
make monthly visits to the school as
the law directs, one to ring for parents
to go in occasionally and, hy their

LOST A FINGEK.
On Tuesday a sixteen-year-old so
of Benjamin Garland, of Belfast town
ship, was cleaning his gun prepara
tory to knocking the eyes out of a big
gobbler. In some way the ramrod,
with the wiper attached, became fast In
the barrel of the gun. The young man
thought of ut least ono way to dislodge
the stubborn obstacle, and that was,
to put a churge of powder in through
the pivot and shoot It out. This he
did, and he loosened tho ramrod, but
he spoiled the gun badly, besides
blowiiiLT off the end of the second lin
ger of his left hand. Dr
