—W. D. Bovard of New Hope served
on the jury last week and during a visit
to our office said that npinSlipperyrock
creek snlphur water from the mines in
the Hilliard Valley has killed off all
the fish above the Kiester dam except
carp, which it does not affect. At the
Hogg dam carp weighing 15 pounds
may be *hot. When the dam is frozen
thick with ice the big fish crowd to the
. gate feeding the mill rac» for air and
ran be taken ont with a garden rake.
The sulphur has also had the effect of
clarifying the water so that the liottom
can be plainly seen where the water is
ten feet deep. Slipperyrock creek was
always famous for its pike; but carp,
which destroy the spawn, sulphur wa
ter and salt water formed a trio too
strong for the big game fisb. At rare
intervals one is still caught, but never
further np stream than the Etna mills
dam. The Inst pike Mr. Bovard remem
bers of were two shot by his uncle dur
ing spawning time one spring iu a riffle
just below the New Hope bridge. One
Weighed 18 and the other 14 oonnds.
Mr. Bovard was then a bare footed boy
and as he carried the fish home on a
stick over his shoulder their tails slapped
the calves of his legs. The carp taste
all right if dressed by dipping in hot
water and skinned like a catfish.

The loss to Reed Nesbit, by the late
fire was about $.">,000. The flames had
gained such headway when the two men
returned from milking, that they could
only save the family, yet asleep up stairs.
Four gold watches burned in the house.
Mr Nesbit had SI,BOO insurance in the
Glade Mill Mutual. The heavy snow
on the roof prevented the sparks from
reaching the barn.
The house of George Wonderly in
Butler twp , east of town, was destroyed
