young husband and wife wish them a
happy and prosperous life together.
A lucky discovery of smoke in the
basement of the Linton Bazar, Mon
day afternoon, undoubtedly saved the
big store from destruction by lire.
Walter Mewing, one of the clerks,
having occasion to go down stairs,
discovered that the basement was
full of smoke, with a small blaze where
a little machine-oil had been spilled
on the lloor and into which some one
had dropped a lighted match. Some
barrels of machine-oil were sitting
near by, and, had the tire reached the
barrels, the building, with its large
stocks of goods in the various depart
ments, could not possibly have been
saved. Being discovered in its incip
iency, the lire was easily extinguished.
G. A. Broman, tlie drayman, thinks
Ir. Britts, tlie veterinarian, is just
about right. Gus had a team of horses
so badly alllicted with contracted hoof
that he could not work them. In fact,
tlie animals were so foot sore that
they could scarcely walk, and their
owner, after unsuccessfully trying
many remedies on them, turned them
loose in the corral, doubting whether
they would ever recover sufficiently to
be worked. Then I»r. Britts. who
had been absent all winter, came
home. Mr. Mroinan took him to see
the horses, and lie said lie could lix
'em, all right. So lie pared their toes
and did other things to their feet,
supplem"nting his work by having
shoes wiin hiirli heels and low toes put
on 'em. Whereupon the aforesaid
animals walked oiT without the slight
est sign of lameness, and they are
again performing their daily task.
Which is why the said Broman entered
the Record sanctum the other day and
enthusiastically remarked: ''I tell you
T. W. Britts knows pretty much
everything about horse-doctoring."
Caroline, the two-and-a-half-year
old daugter of Ctiristoph Market,
living twelve miles northeast of Lin
ton, died last Saturday morning
after suffering thirty-six hours. Her
mother had put on the f]xr by
the stove a big pan of hot. milk which
she had just heated to feed to the
hogs when the little girl accldentlly
fell into the milk. Her mother at once
rescued her, and found that she was
not burned to any great extent. In
fact, the burns would not have caused
her death. But the little one was sub
ject to spasms, and the shock of her
accident brought on a spasmodic at
tack which resulted in her death. The
funeral .services were conducted last
Sunday by tlie Rev. John Bunge, Lin
ton's Lutheran minister, at the home
of the parents, in the Sand Creek
The Peculiar Manser In Which It Came
Pa**, and the Comedy of Errors
Which Supplemented the V«r
mlnt'a Taking Off.
As stated by the Record in a recent
issue, a horse belonging to G. A. Bro
man broke its leg and was killed.
The other day a young farmer was
riding on horseback and carrying ,i
pitchfork not far from the corpse of
the departed equine when he saw a
measly coyote feasting on the carcass.
Tlie wolf started to run and the man
gave chase. Now, the coyote was full
to tlie limit and he could not sprint
much—something like the gluttonous
fox in the tale of the two foxes that
were caught in a hen-coop one morning,
"When the foxes both Mew,'' and the
one that had been temperate in his
eating "wentthrough. But he greedy
one stuck in the hole. In the hole lie
Muck, so full was his pluck of the
chickens he had been eating, lie
could not gel out, or turn about, ami
thus he was killod by lieatlng."
Well, as above said, the wolf was
badly gorged with probably bis tirst
square meal of the winter that lie
couldn't run. So the cavalryman rode
up to him, jumped otf and illmatii/.cd
him with the tines of the fork.
Then, with thoughts of gain, tlie
slayer "sculped" his game and took
otT its ears, saying: "1 will hie me to
the major and get shekels galore for
these About this lime there came
along a German from Russland. who
offered the hunter 4 bits for the hide
of the wolf. This offer was accepted,
and the man from across tin- water
"skun" the wolf and took with him
the hide, the ileas Itelng thrown
in for good measure. The wolf-slayer
kept for himself the "sculp" and the
Soon thereafter the huuter appeared
at the office of the major and, Hopping
the ears and the "sculp" down on the
counter, requested the payment unto
himself of the county bounty in such
casemadeand provided. The German
had also visited the auditor in an un
successful effort to get a bounty on
the hide.
Both applicants were informed that
the statutes of the commonwealth
provided that not only inust "the tail
go with the hide," hut that the hide
must go with the ears and "sculp"—
not neceiMrity to be kept as an asset
of the county, but, as the news
papers aay as to communication signa
ture*, "as ancvldoncc of good faith."
And so it came to pass that the woif
annihilator was compelled to either
obtain the hide to go with the ears,
etc., or forego the pleasure of receiv
ing the b'junty- And so It was that
he straightway sought the man from
across the water, who in themeantime
bad raised the price of coyote skins
from 4 bits to a dollar, and on this
basis the trade-back took place.
And the moral of this true tale is
that there are tricks in all trades ex
cept the pilnter's.

On Sunday the new Presbyterian
church at Hazelton was dedicated.
Three impressive services were held
during the day. Tlie sermon of dedi
cation was preached by the Rev. A.
W. Wright, moderator of tlie synod of
North Dakota, in the evening a mas
terly sermon was preached by Thomas
C. McCurdy, I
D., recently
from Wil­
mington, Del. The Sunday-school rally
In the afternoon was well attended.
Thechief address was by Sunday-School
Missionary J. R. Hughes.
Tills was an unusual dedicatory
service, inasmuch as it was not nec
essary to solicit a single dollar in order
lo meet the
Indebtedness. The report
of the chairman of the beard or trusi
ees showed that all bills had Ixjcii paid
and that the building was free of debt.
This is certainly greatly to the credit
of the people of Hazelton and those in
The church cost approximately
000. It has two rooms, with a seating
capacity of 2ir. It has a heating plant
and is completely furnished.
During the dedicatory service a sil
ver communion-service was presented
to the church, the gift of Rev. and
Mrs. John Wray of Ila/.eilon.
Another pleasant feature of tlie day
was the transfer of some funds which
belonged to a union church which
some years before had existed at
Williamsport. A statement was made
by Mr. Kurtz, a trustee or the afore
said church, arid at his suggestion, and
with the concurrence of all those who
had formerly been members or sup
porters of the union church, the mon
ey was turned over to the Presby
terian church of Hazelton.
During the past year this church
has been under the charge of Rev. E.
S. Brearley, pastor-at-large of Bis
