The Old Mill.
Not forgotten, but childhood mem ories are only refreshed. Leah Kauch er, who died February 4. 1910, was raised here and greatly beloved by all our people. She was before her death a teacher in Oklahdma, and at one of the teachers' institutes read the fol lowing, which tells the story of the "Old Oaken Bucket" over again, and as you read this, yt ur heart will no doubt beat in fond recollections of dearly beloved Leah, and the old mill and the old swimming hole. The pa per is handed us by a member of the family, who but recently found the bit of "copy" among her effects, and kindly hands it to us, and we take the liberty to give it space in our col umns: A CHILDHOOD MEMORY. Ah! there it stands, the central fig ure, in the little valley walled by wooded hills. The noise of machinerj' and all indications of activity belong to a time forgotten and the "Old Mill" stands out "lonely and spectral, somber and still." One great oak spreads its gnarled branches so near that, when the breezes blow, it raps with almost a loving touch the sides of the old structure. Near by stands the little log house under the shade of the elms, and though long ago forsaken, the lilacs still bloom by the door. Beyond the mill flows the brooklet, clear and cool Now murmuring on its rockpaved way, now tumbling noisily over giant boulders, now rip pling, sparkling over the pebbles at the ford, now flowing softly under the willows into the old swimming hole, then lost to view around the cliff be yond. The echoes have long ago forgotten the song of the old mill-wheel and the brook. But the wooded hills resound with merry bird songs all the day and the whip-poor-wills and frogs join in evening serenade and occasionally an owl from its perch in the Old Mill window murmurs complainingly. As the shadows deepen the moon appears over the hill-top and sheds its soft xays across the little vale. The lonely mill, the ancient trees and the desert ed house are merely blackened objects. The little brook alone reflects the silver moonbeams. Leave the sombre picture to the night-birds and the ghests. Leah Kaucher. Last Friday, Mildred King, while marching into the school, in some manner fell and broke her left hip. While she is suffering greatlj', she is getting along as nicely as could be ex pected. For Sale.
