THE SCIl ANTON TRIBTJXE TUESDAY MOItXING, DECEMBER 11, 189-1.
Very Handsome Assort
ments of New Silks are
Shown for the Holiday

more interesting than

stock is at its height.
Two essential points to remember:
Our styles are invariably in the

Your correspondent had the pleasure
of a trip to South Gibson last week, a
lively little town In the interior. The
chief subject of dlBcussIon is the pro
ject of a new electric road from Nichol
son to Susquehanna, via the Tunkhan
nock creek, touching about half a doz
en small towns on the trip. The scheme
is well worthy some enterprising capi
talists, but who they are or when tho
road is to be built is among the mys
teries. The chief source of amusement
at this interior village wus fishing
through the ice, which Is dally indulged
in ns long as the Ice and fish hold out.
Large numbers of fine specimens were
"hooked," after which the older resi
dents retire to the hotel and swap
yarns about the fish they caught when
they were young. It seems strange
how the stories grow with age. One
old veteran had caught In that same
pond thirteen suckers that Just filled a
washtub, while another individual re
lated how, about thirty winters ago, he
had cut a hole In the Ice about two feet
ucross and hooked some of the finest
pickerel he had ever looked upon. The
old man said he didn't know Just how
much the largest weighed, but to give
us a little idea he stated that he pulled
one almost through the hole In the Ice
when his hook broke and he would have
lo3t it only Its gills caught on each side
of the hole and it couldn't get its head
At Foster we ran across several of
the Brooklyn oil speculators, and they
were as jubilant ns kids with red top
boots. It was reported on the bourse
at Foster that the long-looked for oil
had been reached, but not with quite ns
much "gush" as they expect In a week
or two more. Pipe lines, plans for
seven-story hotels, trolley lines and In
numerable oil refineries and tanks loom
up in the distance, and the people ol
that region are on tip-toe with expect
ancy. A number of new buildings are
under way at Foster, and the business
men you meet are the right sort to
make a town thrive.
