The Animatiscope entertainment
given in the Knights of Labor hall
Thursday evening at this place by
Sturdevant and Murrey of Wilkes
Barre was a success in all its features.
The graphaphone was the best and
most destinct that has ever been in
our town. The picture of the battle
ship, Maine was very good but the
picture of the morning toil and love
in the dark seemed to take all the
applause of the audience. But we
think the best pictures were the farm
scene and scene of the New York
Fire Company. It looked so real
life-like that one of our young ladies
jumped from her seat, she thought
tlx; hose cart was going to run over
her. The audience was well pleased.

The Mildred butcher is pronounc
ed patriotic, and is not backward in
showing it when given a chance. On
Saturday he drove to Colley to have
his team shod, while waiting his
turn the smith made a number of
irreverent remarks about the U. S.
navy. After calling the smith every
thing but a gentleman, the butcher
hitched up his team and went to Du
shore and had them shod. This is
patriotism with a vengence. Who
would not be an American?
Mrs. Bridget Donovan departed
from life at the home of her daughter
Mrs. Rose Hoffa Saturday night at
10:45. Aged GO years. During her
life she had seen her share of hard
ships. Left alone with a family of
seven small children, she made a
heroic struggle for a number of years.
Success crowned her efforts, and she
lived to see her family grow into
young men and women, who are a
credit to both her and their country.
During the latter part of her life she
was cared for by her children with
love and veneration, but no human
power could stay the hand of death

IT'S A LIVELY YOUNGSTER.
The REPUBLICAN NEWS ITEM of
Laporte passed the third anniversary
of its birth with the issue of May 5.
Since its first number Mr. Charles L.

greatly prospered. We are pleased
to note its success.
The Hughesville Mail, a staid and
dignified journal, deserving and in
dependent, under the new manage
ment of A. 11. Shimp, extends felic
itations. As the NEWS ITEM eon
sideres the Mail good company and
hopes they may grow old together
with an equal proportion of good
luck, we clip from it the following:
EDITOR IN LUCK.
Among the recent appointments
of postmasters made in Washington
was that of Chas. L. Wing, editor of
the REPUBLICAN NEWS ITEM, as
Uncle Sam's representative at La

upon his appointment, as it is not
often that the powers that be recog
nized the worth of the poor editor.
