Tin* Supreme Court has decided that
poultry running at large is wild game,
and the partv on whom they trespass
has a perfect right to kill them. L nder
this decision a man who runs a garden,
adjoining the premises of a man who

keep his table fairly supplied with
poultry. This would affirmatively
solve the question of whether it pays to
keep a garden.
There was a base-ball match or mix

and the Esq. gave judgment in favor of
ball players against Robinson.
"Reason is the life of the law." saith
the great master, Coke; "nay, the com
mon law itself is nothing else but rea
son." Now* reason is that power by
which we are able to combine means for
particular ends. For example, as we
learn from am address from Mr. Everett,
son of his distinguished father, a gen- i
tleman who sat in Congress lately and
who now aspires to the chair of Govern
or of Massachusetts, a poor clergyman '
was anxious to obtain hymn books <
cheaply for his congregation, and was
delighted to hear from a firm that it i
would supply them gratuitously, pro- ;
vided they might contain certain adver
tisements. The books were received. '■
and the minister, who expected the ad
vertisements to be on separate leaves,
which could be torn out, was surprised
not to see any in the books. But on the 1
first Sunday after, the congregation
fonnd themselves singing:
Hark, the herald angels sing,
Bullhead's pills are just the thing;
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
Two for a man and one for a child.
This was the combining of means to a
particular end, the exercise of reason,
which is the life of the common law.
The preacher bargained with all the
terms plainly before him, and if he did
not grasp their possible meanings, that
was his own fault. Through failure to
do so he suffered much ridicule; all the
world has laughed at him, but there
could be no recovery for him at law.

THE ISLE OF CHAMPAGNE.—SATUR
DAY, OCT. 2d.
We have had our political wave, our
wave of financial depression and our
tariff wave and now the country has set
tted down to something like growing
prosperity and proposes to enjoy the
wave of mirth and merriment which
comes to us with the year s theatrical
season, which, like spring, is one of the
most welcome of the many when it ful
fills our wishes and proves true to its
destined purpose- that is, to drive dull
care away. Perhaps of the many enter
tainments now before the public, none
will be more welcome here and so ade
quately fill the bill in all respects as the
'•lsle of Champagne" opera company,
which comes to the Park Theatie on
Saturday, with Richard Golden and
Miss Kathering Germaine as co-stars in
the leading roles. Two artists of such
opposite method are seldom met in con
junction and that is perhaps one reason
why this opera eclipses so many others
in the theatrical orbit and why the
theatre-going public is so highly de
lighted with their empyrean transit.
Mr. Golden is a high-class comedian
who has won fame and gained friends
and reputation by his ability to make
people laugh. Miss Germaine is one of
the most beautiful women and sweet
est singers that ever graced a stage and
first won great prominence as Francisco
in DeKoven & Smith's opera. The Fenc
PAYTON'S BIU COMEDY COMPANY.
During next week Payton's big com
edy company will hold the boards at
the Park Theatre. Payton's comedy
company does not carry a brass band
for out-of-door concerts, but it carries a
company of recognized players who are
capable of giving a performance equal
to any of onr high priced organizations.
Each play is a production. Every piece
of scenery and all properties, such as
pictures, carpets easels, mirrors, lamps,
chandeliers, madallions, palace, electric
calcium, stage furniture, are carried by
Payton's comedy company in a special
60 foot car. Everything carried this
season is entirely new. The opening
play fqr Monday evening will be that
beautiful society play, The Banker's
Daughter. Ladies will be admited free
Monday evening if accompanied by one
paid 30c ticket.
; Ladies tickets for Monday Evening can
be hail at Reed's Book store.

About 175 veterans of the sixth Heavy
Artillery met in Butler last Thursday
at their annual reunion. The local G.
A. R. and U. V. L. with the Germania
band met the out-of-town comrades at
the P. & W. station in the morning.
At 10:30 a. m. the reunion was called
to order in the court room by I. J. Mc-
Candless, Chairman of the Committee
of arrangements. An address of wel
come was made by J. M. Greer, and re
sponded to by W. H. H. Wasson, of
Pittsburg. At noon the veterans dined
at the Park and Waverly hotels and
Goss' restaurant. The afternoon meet
ing was addressed by Maj. S. P. Long,
of Pittsburg. Congressman J. B. Sho

meet at New Castle in 1898. Immedi
atly after a dress parade headed by the
McPherson Post drum corps of Pitts
burg was given in front of the Court
House. Every veteran's countenance
betokened happiness as they went about
greeting each other and recalling events
of "auld lang syne."
Kinzua Bridge Excursion.
About fifty Bntlerites, including a
football team, took in the excursion
over the narrow guage divison of the P.
& "W. railroad to Kinzua Bridge, Mc-
Kean county, Pa., on Saturday. The
train left Butler at 5:30 a. m. and ar
rived at the big bridge about noon. The
bridge is a trestle-work structure span
ning Kinzua creek. It is over iJOO
feet high and probably half a mile lone.
After a short stay at the bridge the ex
cursionists came back to Kane, 15 miles
this way. That afternoon the Kane
baseball club played a game with the
Foxburgs. Kane was ahead in the
score, but the game was given to Fox
burg through some misunderstanding.
Then the Butler football team and the
Kanes got after each other. Both teams
showed a need of practice and coaching,
although they put up a fairly good
game Kane scored one touchdown and
won the game 6to 0. Considering that
the Kane club averaged at least fifteen
pounds more per man than the Butlers,
our Injys done well indeed. The Butler
players were H. Miller, A. Donaldson.
E. Lantz, U. Williamson. B. McCntch
eson, C. Linn. W. Hayes, B. Forsythe,
C. Smith, E. Negley, and R. Ritchey.
Hayes had his hand hnrt during the
game, and C. A. Koos, of Parker,finish
ed in his place. The boys were all
highly pleased with their treatment by
the Kane people, but they have no re
spect for the judgment of the fat indi
vidual who refereed the game.
The excursionists arrived home about
2 a. m. Sunday morning.

26 large buildings, all connected by a
corridor, were inspected by the guests
between the hours of 1 and 3 o'clock.
The exercises in Kerlin hall consisted of
prayer by Rev. Dr. T. Edwin Brown,
pastor of the First Baptist, church
of Franklin and singing of "America"
by special choir. Addresses were made
by Judge C. Heydrick, of Franklin, pres

On Saturday last judgements were

amount of nearly $19,000. The largest
single claim wss in favor of attorney

to be doing business for the W. B.

John J. Sullivan, of Allegheny,
secured work at the Vulcan foundry, in
New Castle, and boarded a Pittsbnr g

Near EUwood City he noticed that
sonieth ing was wrong with one of
the axles of the car. The train stopped
on the grade and Sulliv an jumped
bown. The train had stopped on a
trestle, and he fell 60 feet to the rocks.
He screamed as he fell and a brake
man found him unconcious. He re
vived snfficently to tell about the axle,
and probably saved the tram. He had
both arms broken and was otherwise
injured, and now lies at the hospital in
a critical condition.
At the Cambridge fair, last Friday
Miss Minnie Lamont. the aeronaut,
had a narrow escape from death. She
made a balloon ascent, and when about
half a mile high she cut loose from the
balloon and made the parachute drop.
She struck in French Creek, just
below the iron bridge, where the water
is ten feet deep. Her hnsbrnd. Prof.
Bassett, plunged in and kept her afloat
until a boat rescued them. It required
the services of physicians to restore the
lady to consciousness.
The Martinsburg W. Va. Improve

has failed with a loss to stockholdars
of SBO,OOO. The only hope of the stock
holders is that the association will rea

works and the Auburn Wagon com
pany, aggregating SBO,OOO. These in
dustries are now being operated by re
ceivers. The assocation was organized
to loom the town in 1892, and since
then $200,000 has been sunk .and a dozen
wealthy men broken. The town's busi
ness iw severely shocked and more fail
ures are expected. Many poor people
lose their sayings in the failure.

In the woods he met two men with
guns. They made inquiries about a
good place to find squirrels. Campbell
went with them to a place where they
found some squirrels. His friends
did not get a shot, but Campbell shot
three. His companions proved to be
detectives who arrested him and took
him to Latrobe where he was fined $lO
for each squirrel killed and $5 costs—
