Red Men Honor Aged Chief.
Ongpatonga tribe No. 67, Indepen-
dent Order of Red Men, of Lewistown,
last week honored their veteran chief,
Henry High, with a banquet which
proved a very pleasant affair for the
aged patriarch of the tribe, and there
is just enough of ancient history con-
nected with ‘the gentleman’s life story
to make interesting reading.
“Big Chief” High was born at
Aaronsburg, this county, on July
12th, 1831, while his father was pro-
prietor of the White Hall hotel in that
town. When Henry was twelve years
of age they moved by wagon to the
State of Illinois, but he returned with
Isaac Bain, one of the teamsters who
hauled the household goods and re-
mained with him a year. He was then
bound to John Homan, who treated
him so badly that he gained his free-
dom and was again bound out to Sam-
uel Bright, where he remained until
he attained the age of 21 years.
It was during this time that he was
sent into the mountains to look after
stray cattle and was lost, wandering
about the wilderness with only such
food as he could obtain by his own ef-
forts for more than a week. He was
found by a hunter who saw him mov-
ing in the brush, raised his gun and
was on the instant of pulling the
trigger, when his quarry yelled, tell-
ing who Le was. He was then es-
corted back to the road.
Brother High’s first vote was cast
for President Pierce, he voting on
age. He is now the last of the family,
his only son, Elmer High, a telegraph
operator, of Tyrone, dying only a few
He joined the Red Men May 15th,
1880. He is a past Sachem and is
known as the “Old War Horse of
Ongpatonga.” He attends all meetings
and always wears a sash presented to
him by Past Great Incohome Frank
K. Donnelly, of Philadelphia, who is
a great admirer of the chief. Broth-
er High reads without glasses and en-
joys life generally as a man of half
his years, but realizing the end must
be near, he has deeded his property
to the tribe and will be taken care of
by them to the end.

Sunday evening witnessed the worst
blizzard of the winter thus far in this
section. No church service was held
in the United Evangelical church Sun-
day afternoon, owing to the drifted
condition of the roads. The minister,
Rev. Snyder, was unable to come in
from Millheim. The Woman's Mis-
sionary society of the Reformed
church had announced a public meet-
ing for the same evening but it was
postponed until later. No complaint
can be made that the winter has been
too mild, and if the following four
weeks bring as much snow and storm
as the past two weeks have done
surely the ground hog deserves credit
for living up to expectations.

she has had her share.
Pearl Miller, the infant daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Miller, was

abscess behind the right ear. She is
not yet four months old, and her par-
ents are quite concerned about her.
Mrs. Sadie Shank, of Philipsburg,
who spent he week-end with her sis-
‘ter, Mrs. William A. Walker, of the
upper works, returned home Monday
morning. She did not find an oppor-

Romola, as the weather was too bad.
Mrs. Arthur Crotzer, of Romola,
visited the earlier part of the week
with her sister, Mrs. W. A. Walker,
and brother and family, Mr. and Mrs.

She found it pretty cold driving over
the mountain. .

Have You Scrofula?
Now Said to be as Often Acquired as
It is generally and chiefly indicated
by eruptions and sores, but in many
cases it enlarges the glands of the
neck, affects the internal organs, es-
pecially the lungs, and if neglected
may develop into consumption.
It causes many troubles, and is
aggravated by impure air, unwole-
some food, bad water, too much heat
or cold, and want of proper exercise.
Hood’s Sarsaparilla, the medicine
that has been used with so much
satisfaction by three generations, is

Freight rates have played a very small part
in the rising cost of living.
Other causes —the waste of war, under-pro-
duction, credit inflation — have added dollars
to the cost of the necessities of life, while
freight charges have added only cents.
The average charge for hauling a ton
of freight a mile is less than a cent.
A suit of clothing that sold for $30
before the war was carried 2,265
miles by rail from Chicago to Los
Angeles for 16% cents.
Now the freight charge is 22 cents
and the suit sells for $50.
The cost of the suit has increased 20 dollars.
The freight on it has increased only 53 cents.

these other charges amount to but a few cents
