His wife has been dead some time. John Smith, another Whips Cove man, married to Jane, daughter of John Winter, and sis ter of Levi, lives four miles from Blue Mound. Mr. Smith owns two tracts of land, on one of which his son Clem lives. Five miles from tin; city lives Maude Winters, daughter of David Winters of Bethel town ship. She is married to Mr. William Adams, who owns nnd lives on a good farm and they have a very comfortable home. From Blue Mound Mr. Ples singer visited his brother-in-law, William Hess, who lives near Sheffield, one hundred and fifty miles north. Mr. Hess went out to that State about nineteen years ago, and has been very prosper ous. Besides a good farm he has eight good horses, forty head of cattle, and is just gathering eigh ty acres of as line corn as one ev or sees. Mr. Hess is married to an Dlinois lady. They have five children three sous and two daughters. Mr. Plessinger attended at De catur, what they call out there, a Corn Carnival. It is much the same as our County Agricultural Fairs not Fulton county's. He also attended a protracted meet ing that the Christian people were holding. It had boon going on for seven weeks, and about fifty persons had united with the church. What was new to Mr. Plessinger was, a baptistery in the church a pool in which the converts were immersed. The leading preacher was a woman who seemed to have much power for good over her audiences. To say that Mr. Plessinger was delighted with the people he met in Illiuois and of their generous hospitality is putting it mildly. He thinks too, that it is a grand section of country. The distance; from Hancock to Blue Mound is one thousand miles. ' His ticket out cost him SUT.iiO; and back, 10. OH. We suppose the reason they charge less to come back is, that they know one who takes a trip west has a good deal less money when he is about to start for home than when he left home. While Mr. Plessinger is old enough to be out of the draft, he had never been on a railroad train before, and is much pleased with that way of traveling. People who always stay at home never know how much they miss; and when one takes a trip away and sees what exists out side of his own locality, ho is led to wonder why he does not travel more. Everyone spends, unnec cessarily, money euough to give them at least one enjoyable trip that would be worth half a lifetime. THE AUTUMN FAIRY. DEATH OF AN AO EI) AND WELL - KNOWN STOCK DEALER. A QUESTION OF TALK. j OOGOOOOCOOOO OOOOOOOCOOOC OO BY LAUUA M. All!). The Buccaneers. Theorigiual "boucaniers" were a wild and picturesque gang. To the waist they were generally clothediu a sunburned and weath er beateu skin, and they wore pan taloons of a course linen, dyed and stiffened with the blood of bulls and pigs and held up by a belt of rawhide, stuck full of deadly kuiv es. Their apparel terminated in pigskin boots and no stockings, and they carried a long barreled firelock, loaded with ounce balls of lead. They were animated witha com moil hatred of the Spaniard, that iu their eyes justified any attack upon his person or property, and by a wild sort of attachment to each other in their perilous lives, which led to their being known as the "Brethern of the Coast."' When the Spaniard drove them into the career of marauders upon the sen, the word buccaneer took a new meaning, though they were also known as freebooters. This was a mongrel English word, "buiten" being Butch and "bue teu" Gernftiu for plunder. Of this word the French made "fili buster," with the s silent, and then softened it to "filibuster," which the Spaniards modified in to filibustoro. So we finally got the word back, with a new mean ing and a special application as "filibuster." Try II cr WvuknvKH. Ho This shoe doesu 't lit. a bigger on.. She (severity) No, sir; bring me the same size a little larger. She is not as sweet or coquet tish as her younger sister, Spring, who swings her daiuty blossom-wreaths to the love-notes of the birds and coyly whispers love to violets. She does not Kssess the geutle grace of blushing, rose-sweet Summer, yet she has her own h? culiar, witching charms, a melan cholly sweetness, subtle and in definable ns the fragant broathof lilies. Grape-crowned, she sits in pen sive loveliness; a tinge of sunset resting on her brow, while into her spacious lap, she gathers the golden wealth of the dying year. She shakes the dew-jewels from her hair and dips her magic wand in dyes of brilliant hue, scatter ing her autumn spleuder in riot ous profusion. She turns the russet corn to burnished gold and silvers the crimson fringe of sumac with the wild cotton's silken tufts. With rosy-tipped fingers, she paints the Virginia creeper's graceful ten drils and waves the scarlet ban ners of maple, lieveliug in wild, riotous carnivals of color, amid the amber and gold of the chest nut, the llaming red of the gum tree, the lemon of the hickory, she drapes her forest-halls iu Orient al scarfs and hangs her gorgeous tapestry ujxm the hills. She stains the p lished cheeksof luscious apples iu streaks of red and yellow and green; she molds the pumpkiu in solid gold and powders the grape with its deli cate bloom. lier rustling garments stir the rich plumes of golden-rod that bend caressingly to star-like as ters, fringing her sylvan paths. Into the laps of lichen-covered rocks she shakes the brown nuts and spreads her dainty king-cups over the table of the woods. Shy rabbits and cunning squirrels come skipping to the feast and bear away the viands to their homes in hollow trees. Dryads wrap their limbs iu the gray bark of trees and listen, from amid the bubbling sap, to the farewell songs of homeward fly ing birds, whose liquid notes min gle with the mournful rustle of dead leaves. Through veils of purple, dreamy haze, como melancholy breezes freighted with the odor of ripened fruit. From out the leafy glades, "where twilight dwells at uoonduy, float the recriminating notes of katy-dids and the low, sweet call of the hermit-thrush comes from neighboring thickets. Through curtains of gold, the frolicking sunbeams fall nestling among tho velvet linings of empty burrs peep into tho opal tinted crypts of cotton pods or touch with gilded fingers, tho delicate bloom of the grape. But the fairy-wand soon loses its magic power and oue by one her transient glories fade. Low winds blow over the dying flowers, murmuriug a sad requiem, and fortelling tho approach of keen, piercing blasts. Then over the dainty, starry as ters and bending golden-rod; over the tender ferns, and mosses, vel vety audgreeu, the Autumn Fairy softly throws a russet mantle, and tho woods, stripped of its splendid festoons, stands bare and desolate, as a royal banquet hall, robbed of its princely gam ishingsand deserted byitsguests. New Bloomfield, Pa., Oct. 21. Daniel Augustine, one of the most prominent citizens of Som erset county and a former well known cattle dealer of this coun ty, died at his late residence in Petersburg, Wednesday, October 17, at the advanced age of 82 years. He wus born on July 4, 1817, being a sou of Peter Augus tine, who was a son of Peter Aug ustine, Sr., one of the pioneer settlers of Somerset county, and from whom Petersburg took its name. Daniel Augustine, like his father and grandfather, was endowed with excellent busiuess cupacity and at one time was the owner of fifty-two fine farms, many of them located in Somer set county. Several of his farms wore located in tho Cumberland Valley and still others in western states. He began his busiuess career as keeper of the old "Aug ustine staud," oue mile east of Petersburg, where he conducted ouo of the best and most popular hotels along tho old National pike, in tho palmy days of that great thoroughfare. Iu addition to lookiug after the busiuess of his hotel Mr. Augus tine dealt in horses and stock and made an occasional turn in real I estate, so that when he retired from the hotel and removed to Petersburg it was said that he had accumulated not less than 30,000. At Petersburg he en gaged in the mercantile business for a short time, but soon aban doned it iu order that he could devote his eutiro attention to stock dealiug and real estate. He erected a handsome brick resi dence at Petersburg, which he occupied up until the time of his death. Mr. Augustine dealt more extensively in live stck than any other citizen of Somer set county and was uniformly successful. He made several distributions of his estate among his children, but was still a rich man at the time of his death. Mr. Augustine was an active worker in the Methodist Episco pal church since early manhood and in his death the congrega tion at Petersburg sustained the loss of oue of its most generous members. He is survived by four chil dren, two sons, Ross and Jasper of Union town, and two daughters, Miss Amanda, at home and Laura, wife of Colonel Anderson, a practicing attorney of Wash ington, D. C. Ross Augustine is well known here, having visited in McCounellsburg recently. You Will Never He Sorry.
