IluntetS^af eastern Highland eiir
joyed an exciting bear hunt last
week, and we had hoped to receive
a full account from some of our
correspondents over there.
Mr Ron Wilson, a member of the
carpenter'force on Mr E B Jones'
residence now nearing completion,
was one who participated in the
chase. There were about 12 men
and boys and as many dogs, and
two bears were rotrted.' Shenan?
doah mountain has long been one
of bruin's favorite haunts, and he
prey8 upon the sheep and lambs
during tbe range season. This
gives the hunter a dual purpose in
hunting him down, for the sport is
fine aud the revenge sweet when
many fat lambs are missing at th(
It happened that Ron got first
chance at bear No. 1, and, although
small of stature and young in
years, he is an adept with a gun
but had never stood face to faci
with such large game. He stout!]
maintains that he was not scared
much?but is unable ta accoun
for the fact that both barrels of hi
shot gun were discharged at once
as the sequal showed. Conmen
of his aim, he rushed in to see i
any finish were needed, but foun
bruin?nit! He had mowed ot
something less than a bed-tick ful
of twigs and leaves just oyer th
sheep eater's back, and he was gc
mg, Ron says, using the fast fee
and doing no back-peddling. H
had evidently concluded that
Highland boy who could fire tw
guns at once and send the content
of both within scorching distant
of the spinal column, was not t
be given a second chance, so 1
ambled awav aa only a scared be:
knows how to amble.
Another bear was routed lat*
and was killed dy Mr Russ Eagl
of Doe Hill, after a good deal <
sport and excitement participate
in by both men and dogs.

Last Tuesday was election day
md wa9 one of mare than usual
nterest here because it was the
ime for electing county officers.
The day, in point of weather
conditions, was ali that could have
been desired, leaviug no excuse for
my to absent themselves from the
mils, and making it pleasant for
.he busy men who work all day in
:he open air.
We publish elsewhere tho official
returns, and they show a fairly
ijood vote of the county. The
county officers elected included the
entire list except clerk and com?
missioner. The contest in which
most interest was manifested was
that between Messrs Jones and!
Col aw for Commonwealth's Attor
ney, the race being a remarkably
close one and calculaj/d to excite
interest as the returns;came in.
In two of the magisterial dis?
tricts?Monterey and bluegrass?
there weie three candidates for
Supervisor, and iii, 'Stonewall there
were two. The contest!.a each dis?
trict was warm and spirited, but,
throughout the county, so far as
we have learned, the dapassed with?
out disorder and unpleasantness.
Taken as a whole, Highland had
good men in the field, and, while
there is bound to be some disap?
pointments, as citizens we may
congratulate ourselves that compe?
tent, safe and honorable gentle?
men have been placed at the tiwi tn
and will do all they can to promote
the interests and welfare of all the
