Local Camp Wins Prize.
Recording Secretary, Mr. W. W.
Knickerbocker, of Washington Cimp
No. 382. P. O. S. of A., received a com
munication from State President, Mr.
Eugene F. Hendricks, of Reading, Pa.,
that Emporium Camp had won second
prize for the second largest percentage
of increase in membership during the
past year, The prize is a set of pedes
tal covers for the officers stations.
This speaks well for Emporium Camp
when taken into consideration that the
town is not very large and has not the
yopulation to draw from that larger
placeß have. The members of the P.
O. S. of A., in Emporium are hustlers
and are bound to make Camp 382
amount to semething. The delegate,
Mr. Henry Ludlam, who is attending
the State Convention at Easton, Pa.,
this week, will receive the prize in bo
half of the Camp.
On Monday evening while Harry
Sprung and several others were con
versing at the St. Charles Hotel, East
Emporium, James Welsh, one of the
parties, while attempting to remove a
letter from his pocket accidently drop
ped a revolver, which exploded, the
ball entering Sprung's right leg, go
ing entirely through and passing up
along his body. The wound was dress
ed by Dr. Falk and the young man was
taken to the Eagle Hotel where he has
boarded for some time. He is resting
easy at this writing and it is hoped he
will be able to resume his duties soon.
The contract for the concrete side

327 feet of Curbing at 60c per lineal foot.
260 feet of Steps at 80c per lineal foot.
21)0 feet of Retaining wall $1.45 per lineal foot.
Mr. Bliss has had wide experience in

the least doubt about the job bein<j
done in a first class manner. The

been in a bad condition for a long

To the Farmers:
We wish to advise you that we art
installing at this place, a new Grist
Mill, for the purpose ot grinding Buck
wheat, Feed, Meal, etc., in fact we will
be able to turn out grists of all kinds,
with exception of wheat flour, which
we expect to be able to grind later on.
This mill will be equipped with very
best modern machinery that can be
had for this purpose, and we will be
able to turn out work equal to any in
the country. This mill will be driven
by both gasoline and steam engines, so
there will not be any waiting on lack
of power Our location ia the very
best. We have the Penna Railroad on
one side of our mill, the Buffalo and
Susquehanna on the other, with sid
ings from both roads. Parties wishing
to ship grain over these roads can
hive the beat of railroad facilities for
doing so, we expect t<> have it just as
convenient for those that prefer to
come by wagon.
Another matter we wish to call your
attention to, is this it does not matter
if your grain ia a little damp or wet,
we have it so arranged that we are
able to dry graiu by steam in a very
tew hours, this is oa» of the ideas con
celved by the writer in order to be able
to get the very l>eet yield of tiour that
We expect to be able to grind by
