Along tbe edge or the alley next to
the lotol Judge Irwin In tbe north ward,
some tall weeds grew up tbe past sum

another 139 Inches, and the third 120
Inches, These weeds sppeared to be

College, who reported that tbey were un
doubetedly of the lettuce lamily, and

has been known to grow as blgb as 13

tbey will disappear, and are easily killed.
Tbe stocks were about three-quarters of

sufficiently strong to resist storms.

Claude Rosenberg, a Franklin car
penter, wbo baa been working at tbe J.
A. Taylor farm on tbe Pittsburg road,
four miles from Franklin, was in town
Saturday exhibiting tbe paw of a young
bear that bad been caught in a trap set by
him and Lee Uincliffe, a farmhand In the
employ of Mr. Taylor, a few days before.
Tbey had been bunting 'ooons and de
cided to set a trap for one. When they
returned to tbe trap a lew days later they
found a cub's paw. It waa evident tbat
tbe animal bad cbewed Its own foot off
above the jaws of the trap in order to ob
tain Its release. Franklin News. A story
like tbis might be very Interesting If it
weren't so pathetic. To leave a bear or
any other animal In a trap until In shear
desperation and pain it gnaws its own
foot off to free itself, Is heartless cruelty
personified, surely. II there is no law
against such revolting practice there cer
tainly should be. No person should be
permitted to aet a trap who is not willing
to visit It at least once a day.
Dr. W.A, Slaugbenbsupt, of Kane,
throws light on tbe discovery near Hunt
ington of a turtle on the under shell of
which were carved Initials snd dates: "J.
8. 1847," "W. A. S. 1886.!' He says tbat In
1898 be waa practicing medicine at East
Brady and one day near a small stresm
be asw a turtle, which he flopped over on
Its back. He observed tbe carving, "J.
S. 1847," snd proceeded to carve bis own
Initial and the date on tbe aame shell,
after which he released tbe turtle. It is
about 100 miles from East Brady to
Huntington "aa tbe crow flies," but the
turtle probably traveled a much greater
distance than that In tbe seventeen years
that have elapsed since Dr. Slaughen

A new schedule took effect on tbe

on tbe 1st Inst., In accordaooe with which

and run as far aa Parrlsb, reaching that
place at 7:28. Returning tbe train will
leave Parrlsb at 7:88 and reach Sheffield
at 8:49. Tbe second rnn will start from
Sheffield at 9:46, reaohing Sheffield Junc
tion at 10:30, leave tbe Junction at 11:00
snd reach Sbeflield at 11:46. In tbe after
noun tbe train will leave Sheffield at 1:06
and reach Parrlsb at 2:18, leave Pairisb
at 2:30 and arrive in Sheffield at 3:66. Tbe
fourth trip will start from Sheffield at
4:20, and tbe train run to Brookston,
reaching tbat place at 4:45. Returning
the train will leave Brookston at 4:50 and
arrive at Sheffield at 6:15, By this
schedule it will be seen tbat Parrisb is to

Some of our exchanges are noting tbe
fact Ibat Carl Luodatrutu and Dave Leslie
of Jamestown, N, Y., "expect to leave
Warren In a few days on the longest
cruise ever undertaken. Palm Beach,
Florida, la their destination, and in a
month hence they expect to be at New
Orleana. Tbe trip will be for pleasure
and although tbeir craft can make 30
milea an hour it is not tbe Intention to
make great speed. The boat is 36 feet
long and draws 22 inches of water. Ow
ing to tbe rapids iu tbe river it was im
possible to make tbe start earlier, but this
difficulty will be overcome aa it is the in
tention to employ wagon wheela and tbe
craft will be bauied over shallow placea,
where the draft is not sufficient." What
a funny sight It will be to see tbis craft
plowing down over Pithole riffle on
wheel. Indeed it will beat aeroplanlng
a hundred ways, and when it happens
we'd advise all our old-lime navigators
snd rivermen to gel out and witness tbe
Lnleta, the once thriving lumbering
town located on the T. V. 'railroad just
over tbe Forest county line in Elk coun
ty, has been wiped oil tbe insp, ss il were.
This bustling Utile village with Its 200 to
300 Inhabitants wss planted In tbe dense
forest by two of our enterprising citizens,
Col. C. W. Amsler and Joseph Campbell,
wbo established a large lumbering plant
there about seventeen years ago, when
lumbering wasatauoba low ebb as to "try
men'a souls," but the plucky bustlers
stayed by It until tbe boom came in 1897
and things begad to go their way, And
then others wanted tbelr holdings and
these gentlemen "let go" at a nice figure,
and the new people kept business bum
ming until tbe last timber stick was
converted into merchantable lumber.
And now practically all tbe buildings
have been razed aud the lumber In tbem
has been transported to other placea and
rebuilt into convenient homes for lum
bermen. Times cbsnge snd we cbsnge
with them, surely.
Tbe little brown or white rodent
known ss tbe weasel is a source of
revenue and furnishing pin money for
the boys as well as grown men living Id
tbe country these daya. Tbe late bounty
law provldea for tbe payment of $2.00 for
tbe scalp of one of these little enemies to
poultry and small game, and it la no un
common thing for the county treasury to
be drawn upon to tbe exteut ol $10 to $20
in a single day for the distruotion of the
pest. It Is a little expensive at the be
ginning but will grow less as tbe weasels
are thinned out, snd at the rate they are
being taken tbey cannot bold out long,
and tb.e death of every weasel means tbe
ssving of no end of pbeaaants which are
their choicest prey. Besides the atate

by hunters' licenses. A little fellow In
