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. She has written two letters
home, and Is getting along as well as
could be expected. The little sufferer
has stood every operation heroically.

A LARGE ONE.
Ephralm Hart, of Brush Creek town
ship, raised several large sweet pota
toes this season. The largest one,
which was weighed at Locust Grove
postotllce, weighed 7 pounds, less half
an ounce. Six or eight' tubers of that
size ought to satisfy the cravings of
hunger of an ordinary man.
, Dr. Guy Miller, of Hill Valley, who
recently located at Blair's Mills, has
removed to Burnt Cabins, Fulton
county.
DIXON.KUNYAN NUPTIALS.
The most brilliuut ovr-nt of tlio

Dixon, of Pittsburg, Ph., sou of
Captain and Mrs. C. T. Dixon, of
this county.
Promptly on the hour the large
company assembled in the parlor
of th! bride's parents andthe us
ual hush was broken by the
beautiful strains of Lohengrin
rendered by Miss Cora Morgret,
of Hancock. With quiet dignity
the bridal party appeared. Mr.
Ed. 1 'aimer, of Warfordsburg,
acting as groomsman and Miss
Ora Dixon, sister of the groom,
bridesmaid. The bride wore a
beautiful gown of organdio en
train trimmed in white satin rib
bon and carried a large bouquet.
The rooms were lavishly decorat
ed with (lowers, evergreous and
autumn leaves, and the surround
ings were such as to make the
picture, very beautiful and the
ceremony, which was performed
by Elder C. L. Funk, very impres
sive. The presents were very nu
merous and beautiful, consisting
of cut glass, silver, china and lin
en. C A large reception will be giveu
at the home of the groom's par
ents this afternoon.
In about two weeks, the bride
and groom expect to bo in their
own home in Pittsburg.
MRS. AGNES M. STOUTEAGLE.
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.
The sympathy of a very large circle
of friends goes out to the grief stricken
husliuud and children: as well as toher
parents, brothers und sisters, ull of
whom survive her except Fred, a well
known teacher, who died several years
go.
Miss Plui'bo Hoover, tho Philips
burg school teacher who started for
the Klondike over a year ugo und who
bus been doing ull kinds of work up
there, Is now reported to lie teaching
school In Dawson City, with thirty
pupils at $10 each per month.
Extensive improvements are being
made to the Everett Furnace. A new
set of boilers of (MM) horse-power ca
pacity has been put in, also a new pot
oven, which will increase the working
capacity of the plant. The works lire
to be Illuminated by electric light.
D. H. Bridenstein, a former resident
of Everett, Bedford county, but who
bus been In the Klondike for the past
two years, returned to his home from
Dawson City Saturday. 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.
