Quite an amusing run away took
place on our streets 011 Saturday

Stewart Chase and "Nick" the Italian.
They were coming up from the
tannery, Nick with reins in hand.
They turned 011 West Main street, go
< ing at the rate of a mile a minute, the
wagon turned bottom side up and
spilled both occupants out. They
were both slightly injured. Nick
who struck on his head was positive
I he was dead and called for an under
taker. The horse was caught near
the blacksmith shop and was not in
jured in the least. The wagon was
[damaged a trifle. Stewart rather
'enjoyed the experiment and says he
can make the same horse climb a
tree. Nick says he will roost on the

I The Hughesville Mail re-printed
from the Labor Record, last week
an amusing local squib which refers
'to Lake Mokoma. It says : "Some
people are wondering if the new arti
ficial lake up in Sullivan county,
known as Lake Mokoma, will not in
time prove to lie a death trap to the
people of Mi ncy Yai.i.f.t." We would
' respectfully inform the editors of
j the above named papers, that should
Lake Mokoma spring a leak, (which
is not probable) the flood would go
directly opposite from Muncy Valley.
The course would be down Mill
Creek to Loyal Sock. The Record
\ is to be excused for this report but'
i the Mail owing to the political stand
jit has taken in Sullivan county only!
!expresses its ignorance in copying'
the same. But when the Sullivan j
county voter considers the stand the j
Mail has taken 011 all political fights
.in our County, they will agree with
! us, that Rutter lias invariably been
Jon the wrong side of the mountain.
It is interesting to read the pre
dictions given by the prominent pol
iticians throughout the state for the
1 defeat of the Amendment. The
'majority of the noted men say,'"The,
' people didn't want it; they object-j
ied to interference with their personal
; rights, rights which they have enjoy
ed in Pennsylvania for well nigh 011-
jto 200 years." They also state that
the result will have no effect upon
jtlie Fall election unless the Republi
can party should put up a man who
was in favor of the amendment.
Should rtiis Ik- done they are under
i t lie impression that lie will be cut by
the liquor dealers and by a large
number of those who voted against j
| the amendment. Chris L. Magee
says,"it settles the question for
iyears to come, which is a pleasing
| thought to him."
A party of young and old people
of Laporte visited Columbia county
'Oll Saturday last. Among the num.
liter were Rnssel Karns and wife,
Sheriff Tripp and wife, F. M. Cross

Benton enjoyed a trout dinner at
Hotel Perry and after amusing
themselves for a few hours gazing
upon the mourtain scenerj' continu
ed their journey to Benton and put
up for the night at Hotel McHcnry.
Mr. Me Henry had been notified that
a party of Laporters would register
with him on Saturday and in order to
give them a good time, invited the
voting people of Benton to assemble
at his house in the evening to join
in a dance which he had arranged
for the Sullivan party. There were
a large number of people present
and all enjoyed the evening's enter
tainment. 011 Sunday forenoon
the Laporters started homeward
bound, and took dinner at Hotel
Tripp, at Jamison City and after
exploring the lumber city for a few
hours continued their journey,
reaching home at 5 o'clock p. m.

On Thursday of last week a very
sad accident hapi>ened in Terrels A
Trexlcr's saw mill at Lopez. Tbe
setter Mr. Frank Hoover of Smith
Port, McKean county, was instantly
killed and, Mr. Lord the saw-
3 r er was seriously injured. The facts
of the accident as near as we can
ascertain are as follows: The men
had placed a small log on the car
riage and when the "nigger head"
came up it struck the log on the side
next to the saw, throwing it over
the guard on the carriage and in at
tempting to put it Itack in its proper
place the end which lay on the car
riage slipped down and struck the
lever which puts the carriage in
motion, and runs at lightning sj>eed,
bringing the hindmost end of the
log around striking Mr. Hoover on
the head and jamming it up against a
beam crushing it almost beyond
recognizing. Mr. Arthur Lord was
struck 011 the back but hopes are
entertained that he will recover-
There were several other employees
on the mill, among them Thomas
Kangley who barely escaped death.
