The postma?ter of Kittanning was in a
queer prediction one day last week. There
are two Frederick Yockeys residing in
Valley town.-hip, Armstrong Co. Both
were soldiers during the war of the rebel
lion. Within the past year both have been
granted pensions one of them only recent

postoffice. Tbe postmark showed that

them so tbe postmaster had to tefuse to
deliver either of them until he would write
tor lurther information.
