Just then he saw his neigh bors Gillln and Wiser, Gillln's gun still smoking and Wiser's cocked ready for a second shot - both half scared out of their wits when they found what had lieen done. The three men then came together to talk the matter over. Mr. Gillin look ed closely to see if his bullet had touched Mr. Kerlin, and he found that it had shaved the hair bare to the skin above tho ear and that the locks of hair were still lying on Jimmv's shoul der. Mr. Kerlin firmly believes that the apparition in the bedchamber the night before was the appearance of his guardian angel to assure him that his fear hud been groundless, and that no harm should befall him. lie has never since been troubled witli such a dread. A All-: AN THIEF. A short time ago a tram) calling himself Thurman, made his appear ance at the farmhouse of our old Ger man friend Michael KnaulT, in Ayr township, and solicited employment. Mr. KnaulY set him to work husking corn, an occupation at which he was neither a "rusher" nor an expert. He could talk so effusively and entertain ingly in German of the "Fatherland" and kindred topics as to make his way completely into the old gentleman's heart, and this in a measure made up for his shortcomings in the corn Held and Mr. Knauff felt himself fully rec ompensed. Tilings went on swimming ly at the old homestead until last Fri day morning when it was discovered that the fluent talker had decamped, and at the same time u watch, much treasured by MrKnauif, and a pair of boots belonging to William Keyset-, also disappeared. Loquacious trumps will find it the part of wisdom to give Air. Knautl's a wide berth. (;r.oR(;i: w. mili.f.k. The many friends of (ieorge W. Milr, of Taylor township, Will be shucked to hear of his death which oc curred last Sunday morning. About four weeks ago, Mr. Miller took an ordinary cold, but went on with his work as usual. Unfortunately while husking corn one duy in the field it rained and he got pretty wet. This in tensified the cold, and a few days later ho attempted to help with the clover seed. Here the dust seemed too much for him, and his throat swelled. Al though everything was done for his relief, the case would not yield to med ical treatment und tonsilitis and mem branous croup brought un end to his life. , The deceased was aged 2!) years, 11 months and 1 day. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. William Miller, and he leaves a wife and one child. He was a consistent member of the M. E. church, und will be greatly missed in his community. He was interred at Center on Tues day, Kev. G. P. Sarvls conducting the services. DEATH OF EFFIi: G1LBF.KT. Alfred a May Lou Gilbert, daughter of ltev. and Mrs. U. II. Gilbert, died at the parsonage of the First M. K. church, Huntingdon, on the evening of the 7th Inst., after an illness of eight weeks, of a complication of disorders. Kltie, as she was culled, has been a patient little sufferer for a period of seven years and was surely an exam ple of heroic fortitude. Never once murmuring she wished she was like other girls, but bore It all bruvely un til relieved by the hand of death. She was born at Williamsport, Pa., May It!, H8(I, in the parsonage of Grace Methodist church, and at the time of her death was aged l.'I years, " months and -2 days.
