Comments of County Superintendent
Blatterman on the Schools at
the Points Named.
fellANMtN SCHOOL, DISTRICT NO. i.
The trustees of this district aro R. T. Watson,
Henry Tlmckston and John Colo. Teacher, E.
D. Shelton. Tho number or scholars In atten
dance twenty-five: ought to be more. Tho dis
cipline and government of the school aro good.
Jlr. Shelton Is teaching a second year and Is
much liked by tho patrons of the school and tho
scholars. Ills classes manifested very satisfactory
progress in arithmetic, Names' History of tho
United States, physiology Ac, Ac. Tho school
Is supplied with nice charts andotherapparntus.
Wultablo furniture Is needed and will bo sup
plied ery soon, as tho trustees take much
Interest In the school. Tho houso'ls la very
good condition. The teacher finds the charts
great assistants In Imparting Instruction.
To reach this school house is no easy matter,
because you must leave tho pike and travel two
miles of rough dirt road, and you must keep a
(sharp look out or jou will miss the school
houso. At the time of our visit thero v, as a com
plication and the owner of tho land had closed
tho lane leading to tho school so that entrance
was impossible. We had to lcavo horse and
buggy lu the road and tramp through a briery
old Held to reach the ancient edifice This is
known throughout theso regions as Tom Hill's
.school. Inquire along tho road how to And
Itlsing Sun und you aro answered by tho shako
of tho head but prosecuting your Inquires tho
answer comes, "Do you mean Torn Hill's school ?
Oh, that Is two miles distant by Tucll's land."
Mr. IIlll lis a very deserving man and teacher
and has given satisfaction for many years. Tho
houso has a woo-begone look,but;tho trustees will
coon correct this, as they concurred with tho
Superintendent in tho opinion that tho houso
ought to bo repaired and it will bo vory soon.
Wo wero most hospitably entertained by Mr.
Grant Hill and his estimable wifo, who inado us

Theso figures show that this year tho
Democrats gained 101 votes and tho
Republicans 3,719, while the Populists
lost 220 votes.
ine election two years ago was a
Presidential election. Tho Republicans
made a warm fight in this district, and
it was thought they polled their full
vote. A study of tho figures shows that
tho Democrats not only held their own
this year but actuallv increased their
voto, yet it also shows that tho Republi
cans did still better, polling nearly 4,000
more votes than they did in 1892.
This is a remarkable increase in the
voto of the district, and tho question
arises, is it an honest increase? Part of
it may bo and unquestionably is, but
many peoplo will believe that there
must have been some crooked work and
that many illegal votes were cast. The
Bulletin understands that somo of
Mason County's officials have informa
tion that seven or eight colored men
voted in a certain precinct of this county
who also voted in Fleming County. This
information comes from n reliable source
and tho grand jury next week will prob
ably bo called upon to investigate the
matter. A few repeaters in each of the
counties of tho district could make a
vast difference in tho vole.
Tho Bulletin doesn't make tho charge
that there was crooked work done on
election day, but the remarkable in
crease in the Republican voto certainly
raises the question.
Judge Thomas, of Vancoburg, kindly
favors tho Bulletin with tho following
as the result in Lewis :

Attacked by Catalepsy While Standing, He
Remained In That Attitude.
Ono of tho most remarkablo exhibi
tions of tho power and Influouco of cata
lepsy, a form of hystoria that contracts
tho muscles and divests tho subject of
tbe sensation of volition, occurred in
this city a few days since, in which
Thomas Purdy, a laborer, was tho sub
joct. In company with several other
workmen Purdy was ongaged in digging
Ho was standing at tho top of tho
trench, with a long handled shovel, re
moving tho gravel which a workman
bolow throw to tho top, when with tho
suddonness of an eloctrio flash tho man
became transfixed in position, as im
movable as a picco of statuary. Ho was
in tho act of raising tho shovel when
attackod. His right hand tightly olutoh-
ed tho shovel handle near its end
and tho loft hand near tho middla
His loft leg was advancod and slightly
bent at tho knee, whilo tho blado of tho
shovel pointod at on inclination of abont
80 degrees. His eyes wero closed.
Every nmsolo of tho litho and com
pactly built workman was as taut and
rigid as though oonstrncted of iron.
One of tho workmen who obsorvod his
condition got out of tho trench and un
dertook to remove tho shovel held by
tho silent workman. Tho shovol, though,
was clutched with an iron grip, and al
though ho tuggod hard ho was unablo
to remove it from tho olutohos of tho
possessor. Tho man's foot wore firmly
planted on tho ground as though nailed,
and ho stood thero as rigid und motion
less us a pieco of statuary.
Physioians wore summoned to tho
scene, and tho marvelous sight was wit
nessed by hundroda of citizens. Sovoral
unsuccessful uttompts to romovo' tho
shovol from his hands wero made, whon
Polico Captain Alabaok, assisted by sov
oral officers, suoooeded in removing It
from his grasp, although it scorned that
thoy would surely brook off his fingers
in so doing. Tho man'B heart boat with
tho ordinary pulsations, and tho lungs
wore performing thoir vocation.
Aftor tho man had stood in this posi
tion for ovor two hours ho was pioked
up liko a pieco of marblo, placed in tho
patrol wagon and convoyed to a hospital.
Ho romained in substantially tho Bamo
ooudition for two wholo dayB, during
which timo his bodsido was almost
constantly surrounded by physicians,
who wero intensely interested in tho
