Some fellow in writing up the account
of a murder gets off the following. "Give j
him for playthings glittering fragments;
broken from off the sun:"
What follows in its facts may read
like the recital of some horrible dream
i wherein nightmare mirrors upon the ;
distempered brain a countless number
of uioiistrous and unnatural things, yet i
what is set down in the narrative is as j
; true as the sun.

tenden caught in the Allegany between
the Crittenden mill and the Brown j
place, a trout that measured fifteen i
inches iu length, nine inches around
the largest part, and weighed one and
one-half jxuinds. He says the trout
took a good deal of string and proved
a severe strain on his patience, but he
finally towed him in.
