New Hampshire.
New Hampshire was first called lai

" the New Englanders remembering that
* the Peloponnesus, the home of .the
, Spartans and Arglves, was mountain
ous; so was a portion of New Hamp
shire, hence the propriety of the name.
- John Mason, however, who held a pat
f ent for the district, called It New
Hampshire after his native country In
England, and then the name Laconla
was transferred to the hilly district
l near Lake Champlain.

committed by Decker, who, until

The motive of the assault, it is
'aimed, is said to have been a be
lief -on the part of Decker that
Miss Penrod was possessed of
devils. Decker entertained the
idea that he could drive them out
by attacking the woman and the
assault is said to have been of the
most vicious nature. .Matters were
brought to a climax when .Miss
Penrod arose from her seat to give
her testimony, as others have done
at these meetings. Following the
assault the doors of the church
were locked at the orders of

Old Veterans Meet for the First
Time Since the Civil War
At the annual reunion of the
survivors of the 102 nd regiment,
j Pennsylvania Volunteer infantry,
I held recently in Memorial Hall,
: Pittsburgh. John Farnsworth, of
Fast Run. and John Smith, of Ju
' neau, met for the first time since
the muster out of the regiment at
: Camp Reynolds, near Braddock,
! in 1865.
The fact that the two Civil war
veterans never met during a peri
od of nearly half a century is un
| usual, because they both enlisted
from this county and since the
; close of the war have resided al
most continually in localities sep
arated by only a few miles.

Why Men's Hats Have a Bow.
A bow Is always to be found on tbe
left side of a man's bat. This Is a sur
vival of the old days when hats were
costly articles. Tn order to provide
against the hat being blown away In
stormy weather a cord or ribbon was
[fastened around the crown, with ends
hanging so that they could be fastened
to part of the attire or could be
grasped by the hand. The ends fell on
the left side, of course, as the left
hand Is more often disengaged than
the right When not required it was
usual for the ends to be tied in a bow.
The bow became smaller and smaller,
but it still remains and is likely to do
so as long as men wear hats.

Parcel Post Exlbit
For The Indiana
County Fair
Postmaster Harry W. Fee, of Indi
ana, has been authorized to place a
parcel post exhibit at the County Fair
to be held here September 8-11, 1914.
The exhibit will consist of sample par
; eel post shipments of food products
and manufactured articles.
Merchants are invited to exhibit
sample shipments of articles from
their stock to which will be attached
cards showing the weight of the ship
ment and the rates of postage to var
ious points as well as business ads.
An employe of the local postoffice
will be in charge to explain and dem
j onstrate parcel post facilities.
Merchants desiring to participate
in the exhibit should inquire at the
postoffice for further information.
By the above method the "back to
the farm" movement, which has be
come the rage in the cities, will be
given a decided impetus. Along with
the advertisement of the merchant's
stores, whose exhibits will be shown,
the exhibit will be of great education
al value and an event that should ap
peal to everyone.
The first exhibit of its kind in Indi
ana, the exhibitors should reach a

Fast Persian Trains.
There are good American jokes about
the trains in certain parts of the coun
try. But fact has equaled the Action
of the humorists. The Persian train
that takes pilgrims frotn Teheran to

Azlm, although it runs downhill all
the way. has been known to come to
a stop on meeting a tolerably stiff head
wind.—Youth's Companion.
Wonderful Sewers.
The sewers of Paris are the mt
wonderful in the world and constitute
one of the sights of the city. Visitors
are allowed to inspect them on certain
days each week, and it Is certainly an
experience to make a "personally con
ducted" tour of the two main sewers

Always Dreaded the 14th.
j- Most dismal of all men off the stage
was Grimaldi. the clown, and his fa
ther fathered him. He had that curi
ous dread of a certain date which as
sails so many. The elder Grimaldi hat
ed the 14th of the month, and when
It was passed he regarded himself as
safe until the next. He was born,
christened and married on the 14th of
the month, and, being discontented
with all three events, we will hope his
death on March 14, 1788, satisfied him.
