still it may not lie amiss to say some- i
tiring in regard to Sunderlinville in a
descriptive way. The Ville contains
twenty-five buildings, exclusive of barns
and out-liouses. We have two stores
supplied with the general merchandise
required for country trade; two black
smith shops, one vacant at present; one
wagon rejiairing) shop; a saw-mill; a
grist-mill; one boot and shoe shop; one
of the prettiest little school houses in the
country, white, with green blinds; one
hotel (the Evergreen; which is one the
best liostelries in the County, whose
gentlemanly proprietor, M. K. Beach,
and his pleasant wife, cater to the com- '
fort of the traveling public in a most !
satisfactory manner.

there is a supjiosition prevailing in the
minds of some of our friends in McKean
countv that the wolf bounty act for that
county was rejiealed last w inter, I would
' say that that act has not been repealed,
but stands ujon the statute book tL
same as it has for the last 33 years,
i The mistake arises from the fact that
Senator Playford of Favette county in
trod need a bill to repeal the fifth section
of the act of March 20, IS4O, which was j
The title of that bill was an Act to
encourage more effectually the destruc
tion of wolves and panthers in the coun
ties of Luzerne. Wayne, Potter, Mc- !

alone of that Act wasvejiealed last win
