SOLOMON SI.AUGII T l. R .
Solomon Slaughter, the well known
old colored man was found dead in his
bed on Wednesday morning. Re hud
been on the street apparently in his
usual health the day before. Sol had
for many years driven the bus for
Lashley and later for Rixon. He
seemed to like the job and kept ut it
until he became too .weuk and old to
continue the work. As tile bus was
going along Spring street the day be
fore lie died, Sol stopped and looked
at it till it passed him. The writer re
marked to Jeff that Sol was thinking
of his old driving days. His steady
look of interest seemed to talk, but
said nothing. That night Sol was at
his long home.
Re wus born in Virginia und was u
slave until the war. Re escaped to
the North during the war and for
many years resided in McConnellsburg.
From lHHil to the date of his death he
resided ill Everett. lie was a quiet,
well-behaved citizen against whom no
harm has ever been charged. Poor
old Sol! Farewell. Everett Press.
Wm. L. Moseby, on the 2d Inst.,
sold thirty-one head of fat cattle, ull
reared on his own farm in Wells Val

were purchased from other Wells Vul

Mr. and Mrs. Georgo R. .May cele
brated the twenty-fifth anniversary of
their wedding ut their homo In Everett,
on Saturday evening, September 30,
About one hundred guests were
present. Mr. and Mrs. May were the
recipients of muny handsome und val
uable presents, gentle reminders of the
esteem iu which they are held by their
many friends and neighbors. Mr.
May Is a native of Whips Cove, but

Daniel W. Cromer, of Fort Lit
tleton aud Max Sheets, of McCon
nellsburg, are spending their odd
hours iu reducing to subjection
wild, untamed bucking bronchos
that they obtained from a drove a
few days ago, at Faunettsburg.
It will likely be a triumph of mind
over no matter. Mr. Cromer
purchased two and Max one of
the animals with minds of their
own. We have no rexrt from
Fort Littleton up to date, but if
Mr. Cromer's experience tallies
with Max's it is highly probable
by this lime that he regrets that
he attended the Fannettsburg
broncho sale. Everybody knows
that Max Sheets delights iu run
ning up against a high-mettled
and obstreperous piece of horse
flesh, but he is more than pleased
with his recent purchase, which
was never before restrained by
even a halter. For days he has
been trying theciviliztngiufluoneo
of guy aud stay ropes and halters,
ropes to keep him from going
up, and ropes to keep him from
coming down, and st ill more ropes
to keep him within the bounds of
an acre lot. On Monday lie took
neatly a score of colored men,
who had previously bidden an af
fectionate adieu to their families,
out to a Held to assist them in the
turning process, and our inform
ant tells us '"it rained niggers for
about five minutes," after an un
successful Wild West perform
ance. The broncho's movements
are so mercurial that one can
scarcely get a snap shot with a
Till' KVl-RF.TT REPUBLICAN.
The Everett Republican, which
last week of all others failed to
reach us by mail, appears giv atly
changed in typographical appear
ance and make-up and a change
iu management. C. S. Clark, a
former I Jed ford county boy, but
more recently connected with a
prominent newspaper iu Wiscon
sin, takes charge of its editorial
columns, iu connection with its
founder, John C. Chamberlain.

John M. Bowman, under whoso
tutelage they have evidently ac
quired "the nose for news," aud
tins development of other faculties
essential to livo journalism. In
looking over the columns of The
Republican we find much to ad
mire and little to condemn. It is
as full of interesting, newsy mat
ter as an egg is full of moat, and
its advertising department exhib
its a desire on tho part of the
Company to present the state
ments of the business men of Ev
erett to the public in the most at
tractive and artistic manner. We
have watched with admiration tho
growth of The Republican from
its birth, nearly seven years ago,
and noted with pleasure each suc
ceodiug substantial improvement
as this late one certaiuly is. It
is now an eight-page paper. Wo
wish the firm tho success their
enterprise so justly merits.
Amos Plossingor, of Del fast
township, intends removing to tho
old homo place in Brush Creek
township, near Locust CI rove, now
occupied by his father, Jacob Pies
singer. His sou, Harry, residing
at Locust Grove, will move on to
his father's farm.
Sauner Ray's house, near Big
Cove Tannery, is Hearing comple

necessary for his moral aud phys
ical welfare, Wo will tell why ho
is getting his house in order at

Loguo lless, of Old Belfast, has
just completed a handsome resi
dence that is very commodious
and nicely locati 'd. When we vis
ited him he was having it painted
by an artist of much ability and
taste. Even tho lloor got a coat
of paint. But that is another
now thi:y plastfri d.
Ileu Franklin or Solomon or
somebody else once said "Econo
my is wealth," and no people so
well appreciated the t ruth of that
maxim so much as did the early
settlers iu this county. If the
people of the present day were to
in alee as much money as they do,
and spend as little as their
worthy ancestors did, no poor
tax would have to be paid, and
printers woul 1 not got rich print
ing sheriff side bills.
Alex Patterson, of Ayr town
ship lives on the "old Patterson
farm" iu tho Cove. Part of the
dwelling house iu which he lives
was built perhaps a century and
a half ago. Alex, iu making some
repairs to the kitchen, removed
some of the plastering, aud was
struck by the method used to
plaster walls iu those early days.
They did not use plastering lath
as is done now, requiring nails to
fasten them. 0, no! They just
made a lot of locust pins about
two inches long and between a
quarter and a half an inch square
and sharpened the ends. Then
with it hammer with a sharp beak
and a poll they struck the logs
I with the beak making a hole inlo
j which they drove the pin allowing
j it to stick out something more
than an inch. The wall was just
driven full of these pins which
served to hold the plaster instead
of lath as now used. So well did
they answer the purpose that
much of tho plastering of the
room, done so many years ago,
was iu as good condition an when
first put on save ordinary wear.
Jacob L. Hess, of Belfast town
ship, is an authority on 'conns. Iu
fact, when Mr. lless starts out on
their trail, tho 'coons, like Davy
Crocket's, generally come down.
He invites tho McConnellsburg
hunters of these nocturnal ani
mals to call down that way aud
enjoy some sport.
David Harr is making some ex
tensive improvements to and
around his residence in Belfast
township, such as weather-boarding,
lie ha.-; it pleasant location.
Levi Keel'er, who left Ayr
township last spring to try his
fortunes in Belfast, recently pur
chased the entire stock and farm
ing outfit of Elmer Johnston, and
last Thursday moved back and
took charge of the farm lately
owned by Mr. Johustou. We are
glad to note the chango of Mr.
Keefer, aud wish him success.
He served very efficiently several
years on the Ayr township school
board, and has iu other ways
made his usefulness felt to tho
citizens of the township.
J. Elmer Johustou, who recent
ly sold his farm in Ayr township
to his brother Findlay, and also
disposed of his personal proper

their mauy friends here.
