county, lives with his son-in-law

ed with cancer in his throat. 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
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.
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

She is not as sweet or coquet

Spring, who swings her daiuty

of the birds and coyly whispers
love to violets.
She does not Kssess the geutle

cholly sweetness, subtle and in
definable ns the fragant broathof
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
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
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.
Students of human nature will flntl
mueh material for deep study in the
case now under consideration In a
Trenton Court, where a favorable de
cree has been recommended In the suit
of Mrs. Carrie Smith for separation
from her husband, Win. Smith, of
Jersey City.
Divorces unfortunately are hardly
less common In New Jersey than in
most other parts of the Union, but
they seldom happen with arch pi euliar
surroundings. In this instance it Hp
pours the wife-plalntlff Is u woman of
great beauty and accomplishments,
but a deaf-mute. On the other hand,
the husband has the average outfit. He
wedded his better half on recount of
her personal charms and pesumably
booked himself for a long career of
domestic hapjilness since there Is an
r.lleged gcuei al belief among muirled
men that nothing Is more conducive t. :
harmony In a household than hllcncel
In a wife.
But the circumstances following the
maVrlage and that huve culminated In
the application for divorce gle the;
rudest kind of a shod; t.j this silent j
theory. Instead of being happy un-:

Tho boys from our Suudny

draws near. But there is a difll
