We havo not the space in TiK"NlWS to outline the system, but ue readers can gather from brief and agmentary colloquies between them, iimething of Its nature. "Say, Daddy, guess Pll go to work -day." "All right, Sainmy." Daddy, I think Pll quit working r you. Got a better job, Sixty 'dol- ars a month and boarded." h "Al right, Sammy. How much do fow you?" "ij i roe dollars. You Mirn t mad, adjy?"

One of our female reporters tells us this little story about how her mother and sister solved a perplexing ques tion as to how to drive with one trace, while going down the Cove the other day. H seems that midway between this place and their destination the truce became loosened. To fasten it H"cmcd an easy mutter, and both alighted for that purpose. One buck ed the horse, anil the buggy bucked also, and the truce could not be at tached; then the horse wus pulled for ward and the buggy persistently fol lowed and the trace was no nearer the point of adjustment. After debating the matter for a time they concluded that one should pull forward ut the buggy shaft while the other would pull backward on the trace. This they did, while the horse proceeded leisurely along, all parties seemingly pleased at this huppy triumph over an eiubar ransing situation. Finally a gentle man tume along and hooked the trace without the slightest dililculty and then their cup wus full to overflowing. I ll i: AGF, OF. SJT'AM. Mrs. Scott Hann, of Ayr township, has come to realie that this is un age of steam, llccently us she was driv ing along on the hill, near Mrs. Dr. Cook's residence, her horse took fright ut a traction engine that wus ap proaching, wheeled suddenly around and broke the shafts of her buggy. Her presence of mind prevented it more serious accident. Then, lust week she visited her sister ut Lelimuster's, and from there took the train to Chambers burg. This wus her first trip by rail road and she derived much more en joyment out of this experience than the former one, although both of the agen cies were steam. IT COSTS MONKY TO Cl'T TIM lil.K. A party of hunters out raccoon hunting in Trough Creek valley a few nights since, says the Huntingdon Semi-Weekly News, found that night's hunt rather expensive sport. Having treed one of the ring-tailed unlmuls, they proceeded to build a lire under the tree, and on the coming of daylight cut down the tree to secure their game. Just about that time the owner of the land put In an uppi urunce, end a few days later wurrunts were served on all the participants to appear before F.s quiiv Kelly in this place to answer to two sepurute charges, building a fire in the woods und cutting timber without leave. The case was uired on Friday, with the result of each participant Vic ing mulcted in the sum of $7.H8. Some of our farmers complain that there is too much cutting of timber done on their premises, not only by hunters, but by others. The law is explicit in the mutter, und mukes the penalty for violations of this kind two und three times the value of the timber. NOT WILD ON ICS. Mr. Mack Dixon, Pleasant Ridge's hustling merchant and farmer, has a nice Hock of tamo turkeys. Like ev erybody else who has any success raising turkeys, ho allows them to range at will over his Ileitis and through his woodland. A few days ago, a hunter espied a nice bunch of turkeys not fur from Mack's, and quickly stole up to where he could get a good shot, and blazed away. Ho succeeded In killing one and crippling two. To the hunter's surprise, the turkeys did not lly, and he found that he had made a mistake, a thing he no doubt regretted very much, for the flock proved to be M tick's. Conse quence: turkey on the bill of fare be fore Thunksgiving. TAK1CN TO THE HOSPITAL. On Monday morning, a week, Dr. ,T. G. Hunks took Clara Hixson, of Brush Creek township, whose scalp was torn off by the mill shaft, about three weeks ago, to a Philadelphia Hospital.

The subject of this notice, wife of John V. Stouteugle, died at her home In this place early Tuesday morning, aged years, 4 months, und 24 days. She was the daughter of Mr. und Mrs. Amos Hixon, of Brush Creek valley, and was married to Mr. Stouteugle February 27, 188:(. Besides her hus band she leaves to mourn her, four children, Olive U., Maiden S., Amos H., and John F. Her funerul took place Wednesday afternoon and her remains were placed In the family lot in Big Cove cemetery. While Mrs. Stouteugle was not a very strong woman physically, her death ut this early uge, was nn un-thought-of event, und produced quite u shock. About five weeks ago, her son Amos wus uttucked by typhoid muluriu, and the constant care of the mother over her sick boy for three weeks caused her to break dowu physically, and she was' compelled to take her bed. The most tender care of her husband und family, coupled with the skill of one of our best physicians, was not enough to restore her, and she gruduully grew weaker until the end came. At the early ugo of twelve years, she became a member of the M. H. church; and her sweet, pure, christian life show ed, thut ut the time her name went tin the church hooka here, it was inscrib ed in tho Lamb's Book of Life above.

He has been in the west for the past fifteen years prospecting for silver He is the own er of many valuable claims from w hich he reall.es handsomely. He su.vs the reports of enormous costs of living are greatly exaggerated. A careful mother will take great pains to teaili her children to read uloud acceptably. Much time und money are often expended In cultivat ing the' voice for singing, and yet quite us much pleasure may be given by the persou who reads aloud in a pleasing manner. No attempt need be mudo at elocution us the word is ordinarily un derstood; distinct utterance and proper emphasis' so as to convey easily to tho hearer the meaning of the sentences read are ull that is necessary.
