Middleburg Gets Another Bank.
Middleburg Is goiug to have another
bank. There were rumors of such a
move for some time, and during the
past week, the project took more defl
nite shape. The capital stock will be
$25,0tNl and the application was sent in
Saturday to the Comptroller of the
Treasury for a charter. The new instl
tution is backed largely by Swineford
capitalists and a few from this side of
the stream. The bank will be located
on the Brooklyn side of the river. A
lot was purchased fmm Miss Amanda
Wltenmyer, where the bank building
will be erected.
It is rumored that John R. Kreeger,
formerly Assistant Cashier of the
First National Bank of this place, will
be the Cashier of the new bank. Four
teen years ago Snyder county had only
one bank, now there are four andthose
already in existence seem to be doing
a prosperous business, which seems to
be the impetus of the new Institutions.
We hope they may all prosper abundantly.

Tiie most remarkable case on record
and we think the only one in which :t
calf swallows a t wo-foot snake without
injury to the ai.imal ami death to thu
reptile, is reported from Stroiiptown.
1 he calf is owned by Susan Dinhl of
Stmiiptowu, this county, and is now
only ten w.vks (4.1. The , ir was kept
in the "ti.ble ami noiirihfit entirely on
milk. It w:is getting along remarka
bly well until alxitit :i wiek ago, it .lid
not serin to care for nourishment and
was not a very promising case. Mrs.
Diehl could not imagine what was
wrong with the animal. Imagine her
surprise the other day when the calf
discharged a snake H4 inches long in :
After the reptile had lieen discharged
the calf liegun taking nourishment
with the usual, avidity and ic now
seems to Im all right. This story is not
to ls confused with the usual snake
stories, but is properly verified by K.
S. Stroup, Postmaster aud merchant of
Stmiiptowu, whose veracity no one has
