to have their pedigree proclaimed,
published and defamed for a lesser
period—then be cussed during their
tenure. Tell us your troubles, we
won't mention any names.

He was of pioneer stock. His grand
parents were among the early set
tiers on Meigs creek. Some of the
land owned by them has been,in

It seems that some of our read'
ers don't know yet that we do not
write of the troubles of the folks in
our territory—unless it is a broken
leg, whooping cough, and things of
that kind. Perhaps if you want to
do something that you don't want
published, it would be a good idea
to come and talk it over with us be
fore you do it. Morning kourg,

A friend recently told us of a
conversation he had with the late
Dr. J. F. Leeper, when the doctor
told him of his first patient, a small
child, who was ill with pneumonia
Uhey called it lung fever then)
The house was of log, and one
room. Everybody smoked, even the
chimney. Dock said "all the books
I had said there was no chance for
a patient under those conditions
but that one got well."
Vernon Whitehouse left last Fri
day evening for Normal, 111., where
he will visit his brother, Carl, and
family. This will be some exper
1ence for him, as he had never been
on the train before.
Mrs. Frank McCarty visited with
her daughter, Mrs. Marjorie Paisley
Zanesville, last week.
Mrs. Lawrence Embree. who has
been attending college at Athens
for some time, has returned to her
home at Fort Lauderdale, Florida
where she will resume teaching in
the tourist school.
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Little, New
York City, made a short visit with
relatives here, last week.
Mrs. Ona Warne, who has been
on the sick list for some time, con
tinues to improve.
Mr. and Mrs. Francis Glenn of
Lansing, Mich., spent Friday night
with the former's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. J. L. Glenn. They left Satur
day to attend a meeting at Colum
bus. Mr. Glenn has been assigned
the task of raising $6,500 to buy
Bibles for the trainees at Camp
Custer. This camp was a CCC

army camp.
When Fred Mummey was return
ing home from town last Friday
coming down the Brock hill, his car
got out of control and went into the
fence. Fred came out unharmed,
but it spoiled the looks of the car.
Gas In Bristol
Back in 1908, a well was drilled
on the W. F. Fox, then the Win
Bradley farm. At that time there
was a showing of oil, but no gas.
The casing was left in the well, and
recently it has been showing gas.
Mr. Fox has had the gas piped to
the house and is using it to cook
with. This recalls a prophecy of
the late Frank Timis, who at the
time Of the drilling of this well said
"Back of the Morgan township
wells, there is something worth
We are sorry our friend Etta
Bcatty had to have the mumps. As
she had to have them, we would
liked to have seen her. Now we are
glad she has had them.
Grove Gilbert, whose illness we
liave noted, remains quite poorly.
A thing we noticed at the J. W
Panniter funeral, was that no one
near his age was there. While we
have a few that are around his age,
on account of weather conditions, it
was not prudent for them to go out
and expose themselves.
Word was current that the Em­
ery church house was not ready to
hold services, which wa| incorrect
It was the wish of the family to
have had the Parmitcr funeral ser
vice at the home. We feel wre should
tell those of you who are away that
the house looks fine—and folks who
had a part in fixing it up have much
to be proud of, and everyone should
be glad that it is a church, funeral
chapel, or whatever you .wish to
call it, rather than a sheep house
or something else.
We find we are living near Amel
ia Leland. While we knew she for
merly lived down this way, we had
not been able to know for sure that
she was still hereabout, until we
found her in attendance at the Par
miter funeral. That is part of her
religion. One of the seven corporal
works of mercy. I wish we all
knew them and practiced them a3
does she, and others we know, also
the seven temporal works. They are
easier to learn than to practice.
The death of George W. Carnes
of Zanesville takes another of the
old time coal diggers of Bristol
township. His father, a Civil war
soldier, was killed in battle, leavin
the mother with a family of small
children. He, like his brother,
P., had to go to work when only a
young boy. Starting in the coal
bank they kept at it as long as they
were able. We remember him
when he lived at Otho as a very re
ligious man. A friend who is older
than your scribe tells us that he was
very honest, having the reputation
of giving his customers every lump
of coal that was coming to them
We are sorry to hear of the death
of our friend, Mrs. Mary Newton
Our acquaintance dates back to
January, 1891, when we first

family, the Woodwards, and our

tinned through all these years.

Catches Six Hawks, An Owl And

Fred Singree is still claimed tho
champion hawk killer of this vicin-
ity, having killed six hawks, and
one owl. All were caught in traps
placed on top of a stump on his*
farm. Some measured more than
50 inches from tip to tip oil wings*
His latest catch from that- .utumiv
was an opossum that concluded to
help the hawks finish the remains
of the chicken that was made fast
to the top of the stump. Fred1
promptly released Mr. "Possum" and
from the looks of opossum's ^eyes
and his hasty retreat from the
scene evidenced that he would'
not return to the scene,
