Hob, who Is a prime favorite all nlong
For a week n big American eagle
has been seen In trees near a bend In
the road near State Line, and the
trainmen have tried flying shots athlm
without bringing him down. When
Hon has been taking his airing on the
running bourd, the big bird has eyed
him narrowly and greeted him with
loud Roreams and fierce flapping of
his big wings As tho train was
dashing nrunnd the curve on Wednes
day morning, Hob was on the foot
board, evidently enjoying the hrcczo
and the scenery.
Quick as a flash, the eagle dashed
downward from a big hemlock tree
and seized the cat, when a terrific
comhat puttied. The eagle used his
beak and talons and twice attempted
to rise with tho cat. Hob retreated to
the pilot and put up a gallant defense,
with teeth and nails, and for three
minutes honors were even, but the
heavier bird got a neck hold on the
cat and In a moment more would
have ben In the air with him, but for
the opportune arrival of the fireman,
won, ran forward, armed with an Iron
bar, nnd attacked tho eagle, which
dropped the cat and prepared to de
fend himself against the man.
His second battle was brief, for two
blows of the Iron bar placed him hors
de combat. While the fireman drag
ged the dead eagle to tho cab, Hob
followed licking his wounds and
purring In triumph. The eagle meas
ured six feet from tip to tip of wings.

NOVEL PICKEREL FISHING,
Two Susquehanna fishermen were
on the river at Lanesboro on Thurs
day, when they saw a mink come out
from a hole In the Ice on tho opposite
sido of the stream, Just below them.
It had a big pickerel In Its mouth.
When It drew Itself out on the shore
the fishermen began shooting at It.
i'I This frightened the mink nnd It
nroppeu me piciterei una disappeared.
Tho men secured the fish. It wns
still nllvo and uninjured by the mink's
teeth. It was twenty Inches long and

cures ono disease only. We claim that
