A dispute among the Gen. Pershing

One of the squad claimed the head,
hide and one-half of the buck on the
grounds that his shot drew first blood.
But as five other shots were fired at
-.the same time at the same deer other
members of the hunting party disput-
ed his claim. As the hunters were in

Charles Heverely, of Romola, a
young son of William Heverley, had
the honor of killing a black bear. In
company with several others, among
whom were his uncle, Frank Daley,
and brother-in-law, Ward Keller,
Charles, who is only about eighteen
years old, was preparing to return
home from a not too successful hunt-
ing trip when he ran across Mr. Bear,
who happened to be just a little too
close to Charles to be pleasant. Quick
as a wink the lad pulled a gun on the
big fellow, catching him between the
eyes. It is said the bear retreated in-
to his den and the men had to hitch
a horse (or mule) to him to pull him
out. Of course the youngster feels
pretty good over his big game.
Little Milford Walker, son of W. A.
Walker, had a very narrow escape
from drowning on Monday. In com-
pany with several other lads, some
big fellows as well as little ones, he
was trying to skate around on his
shoes, as the little chaps do, on the
pond near the station. A fall of snow
had hidden the open places and Mil-
ford went into one. Fortunately, it
was near enough the bank so he got
out with a lot of scrambling, but in-
stead of going where it was warm
the poor little chap hustled for home
through a fierce storm and as his
home was about half a mile away he
was almost frozen. None of the boys
realized he had started home but
thought he had gone into the station.
His teacher, Miss Confer, was quite
worried until she learned he was safe.
However, he has experienced the fact
that it is sometimes wise to obey
mamma and keep off the ice until he
can be sure it is safe.
Orviston has troubles all her own
and one of the worst is the lack of a
resident doctor, as the folks here are
all quite as susceptible to the ills that
flesh is heir to as the people in less
isolated districts. The people here
have to rely upon the doctors at How-
ard and Beech Creek, and pretty good
they are to come, when possible. Here
is where the main trouble comes up.
The telephone wires between here
and Howard, the central point, are
down or out of order part of the
time, which is very bad, especially
when some one needs a doctor almost
at once. A lineman told the writer
that “kids” were in the habit of
throwing rope over the wires: and
swinging on them, and also taking
pot shots at the insulators. Parents
should impress upon their children’s
mind the importance of the telephone,
its necessity in a rural community.
However, a lot of trouble would be
spared the people of Orviston if they
would insist on having a resident
doctor, as there is enoguh money here
to support one, and especially if he
was a,company doctor. If a special-
ist were needed it would be as easy
to get one as it is to get the outside
man in now, and the regular man
could hold the fort until help arrived.
We have had several bad cases where
a doctor was needed, and because of
the defective telephone lines the pa-
tient has been compelled to lie and
suffer until noon the next day, when
he could be shipped out to the hos-
pital. What the writer would like to
see is a remedy, either better tele-
phone service or a doctor of our own.
One thing the hello girls at Howard
are very pleasant and willing to do
their part by the people of Orviston,
and are never rude or discourteous.
We must give them their just dues,
as being real girls—not imitations.

The correspondent for the Centre
Democrat last week infringed on the
rights of the census enumerator by
becoming, as it were, a health repor- |
ter; and while we appreciate the facts
as set forth in the article referred to,
it is not only a question to the writer
but to many of the town, why, if the
public health is so good, the doctor
makes so many visits to the town?
This town, we are sorry to say, has
a few representatives of the Millen-
nium Dawnists who circulated the
prediction of the “end of the world”
Wednesday, December 17th. We,
however, decided to write items for
the paper, and of course if our good
natured editor and all of us should
have to go smash we should feel after
all as though we had “done our duty,”
and would expect to get the right
seat. It is really a pity that people
who, unfortunately are susceptible to
such doctrines, should be left alone,
while the proper place for them would
be across the river from Northumber- |

Doctors Experimenting on Them-
A dispatch to the New York Times
from St. Paul says:
To prove his theory that germs do
not cause disease, Dr. H. A, Zettel,
electropath, of St. Paul, has challeng-
ed Dr. H. W. HII, executive officer of
the Minnesota Public Health Associa-
tion, to a duel to the death with
germs. Dr. Hill accepted the chal-
lenge and the two will expose them-
selves to the most virulent of conta-
gious diseases, including typhoid,
smallpox, and bubonic plague.
Dr. Zettel will use in his defense
against the germs only sanitation,
pure air, and sanitary food and drink.
Dr. Hill will expose himself after sci-
entific innoculation and vaccination.

About Rheumatism
What Thousands Have Found Gives
Relief From This Painful Trouble.
Rheumatism is a constitutional dis-
ease, manifesting itself in local aches
and pains, inflamed joints and stiff
muscles. It cannot be cured by local
or external applications. It must
have constitutional treatment.
Take a course of the great blood-
purifying and tonic medicine, Hood’s
Sarsaparilla, which corrects the acid
condition of the blood on which
rheumatism depends, and gives per-
manent relief. This medicine com-
bines, with excellent alteratives and
tonics, what is generaly conceded to
be the most effective agent in the
treatment of this disease.
If a cathartic or laxative is needed
take Hood’s Pills. Purely vegeta-
