Almost a Fatal Accident.
On Saturday evening near Art
ley's church in Middlccreck town
ship occurred what might have ter
minated in the loss of two or three
human lives. Allen DeniltB, wife
and child had Ik-cii to New Berlin
and were returning home. They
Stopped at the home of his father.
Henry Denius, to leave mail for
him. It happened also that Joseph
I' rock, a neighbor had also been to
New Merlin and was unhitching
about the same time. Oneol Frock's
horses ran away from the stable and
ran down the lane and becoming
blinded with a lantern that Denius'
hail, jumped into Allen Denius' road
wagon Irom the rear while the occu
pants wen-still on tin-carriage. Both
horses became considerably fright
ened. Denius' horse w as control led,
bui the Frock horse became entan
gled with the road wagon and the
occupants, Mr. Frock's horse broke
his back and died verv soon after.
Mr. and Mrs. Denius were hothlllirt
quite badly, but notserioiisly, The
child escaped with a mere scratch.
The road watron was entirely de
molished, lie accident occurred
about ton or eleven o'clock. Mr-.
Denius is a daughter of S. H. Left
ner of New Berlin and a sister of
Mrs. George Leaver of thi place.
They were both able to conic to
Middleburg on Monday ol this week.
Through the accident Joseph Frock
lost a norsc and Allen Denius a good

were lost and it is certainly miraou
loii? Unit all of the uersotou escaped

Qeo. B. Rine, Jr. Pounded.
Last Saturday evening as Geo. 15.
lline, Jr. ofMcKees was returning
home from Scliusgrove, he wasgiven
a fearful trouiiching by two young
men. The two voting men ap
proached Mr. It i nc Irom the rear
and evidently wished to drive taster
than Mr. lline did. The scene was
enacted in the Narrows near the ac
(Itieduct, between Sclinsglove and
Port Treverton. Mr. Pine allowed
the young men to drive past him.
After they had passed, the young
men stopped their team, blocked Mr.
Pine's passage and began to pound
both Mr. Pine and the young lady
who was with him. Mr. lline says
he knew nothing id the world for
some time and the young lady with
him had to drive home. The young
l.alv, who is a highly esteemed dam
sel of Port Treverton, bears black
and blue marks on her arm yet from
the encounter. Mr. Pine's assailant
tire young men of no mean repute,
coining as they do from one of the
best families in Snyder county. Mr.
Pine considers the assault as a good
joke, though he has been pounded
pretty well and feels himself tin'
victor, as it seems the bone of the
contention was the young lady In
had with him in the buggy.
The time has come when the Am
erican people must decide whether

Rye and Unadulterated Whiskey.
This whiskey is good during the 24
