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.

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.

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

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
