MONSTER REPTILE SEEN
IN TYLER HILL WOODS
BOA CONSTRICTOR TWENTY
FEET IN LENGTH SEEN BY
Oilier Stories Hnvc Circulated Neigh
borhood in Past Years Concerning
Existence of Monster Supposed to
Have Escaped from a Circus.
Probably one of tho greatest sen
sations that has visited Damascus in
many a day was launched one day
two weeks ago' when Fred Greeley,
a reliable and truthful man who lives
between Tyler Hill and Galilee, went
to Tyler Hill and told how he had
seen a snake that was between
twenty and thirty feet long and was
as big around as an ordinary stove
pipe. Mr. Greeley said tht he was out
picking blackberries on his farm,
which Is known as the old Greeley
place and is situated somewhat
southwest of the main line between
Tyler Hill and Galilee, and while
walking around among the bushes
he started to part two bushes to go
through them and in doing so he saw
a log lying on the ground and was
just in the act of stepping on it
when the apparent log commenced to
move. Ho ran back a ways and then
saw that it was a monster snake, or
Boa Constrictor, and that it moved
along lazily with no attempt to harm
him nor to run away. It gradually
made its way into the thick under
growth and disappeared, and the
trail it left was just the same as
though a large log had been dragged
along the ground.
Mr. Greeley s story was called a
joke by everyone who heard it ex
cept some of the old timers around
Tyler Hill, who have heard of this
monster before and took considerable
stock in tho story. Several years ago
Sidney Brush and his sister were
coming from Milanville along the
Frosty Hollow road and they told at
that time of seeing an extremely
large snako along the road, but from
that time to this it has never been
seen, or at least it has never been re
ported. Possibly it has been seen
but no one had the nerve to say they

It seems a pretty big story to
swallow but facts seem to bear out
Mr. Greeley that such a snake exists
in the wilds of northern Wayne.
About fifteen years ago a small cir
cus that was traveling over tho Erie

For tho dollar and twenty cents,
Parker has Officer Canivan to thank

How to Build Up or Tear Down
The Home Merchant
WHY are communities, towns and cities? Have you ever asked your
self this question? Did you think they 'just hnppencd, or had you
ever thought that there was a special need for them? In the be
ginning of time as far back as history takes us we find that MEN
HAVE BANDED THEMSELVES TOGETHER FOR MANY AND OB
VIOUS REASONS, chief among which aro the benefits to be gained from
organized society as a social, intellectual, spiritual and commercial center.
Collectively wo aro strong, forceful
means to attain a growth which will give to us and our progeny opportunities
for better living to develop our moral, spiritual and intellectual life, tho things
for which we were created.
THEREFORE THE SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS OF EVERY CITI
ZEN OF ANY COMMUNITY LIES IN
THAT COMMUNITY AND THE GOOD
IN ITS UPBUILDING.
Now, then, if wo aro to succeed as
must not only strive for our own personal success and welfare, BUT MUST
GIVE OF OUR WORK AND SUBSTANCE UNSELFISHLY TO HELP
Everything we do to help In tho upbuilding and advancement of our city
wo do Jnst that much toward our own personal success. No man can live and
prosper unto himself alone, FOR WE ARE INTERDEPENDENT, and,
realizing this, if we as citizens will nil unite and pull together for tho common
good wo will prosper as n city and consequently as individuals.
Well paved streets and sidewalks,
forced sanitary laws, wefl regulated and energetic police force, competent flro
fighting equipment and rigid building regulations nro economic necessities and
tlierefore they more largely affect us as a community than ns individuals.
But beyond this and underlying It all and upon which rests the foundation of
tho whole is THE SUCCESS OF THE BUSINESS MAN. ' This man makes
an Investment, goes Into some kind of

you should rally around and support.
THE SUCCESS OF A TOWN DEPENDS ON THE SUCCESS OF ITS
BUSINESS MEN, WHILE THE SUCCESS OF THE BUSINESS MEN
DEPENDS ON SUPPORT THEY RECEIVE FROM THE PEOPLE AT
LARGE, EACH BEING, HOWEVER, DEPENDENT ONE ON THE OTHER.
No merchant can succeed without the
lutely and entirely dependent on tho custom of each and every individual who
has a penny to spend, tho lltUo mite of
tho volume on which ho runs his business. The merchant, having plenty of
competition, must, in order to get the peoplo's patronage, figure his prices close
and offer to them tho very best inducements possible.
The merchant pays large rentals,
sides employing many clerks and assistants, In order to maintain and conduct
his business in such n manner as to meet
emphasize it again-HE MUST HAVE
niS BUSINESS PAY.
This community has somo as fine
flno a set of men as you will find nnywhero on tho face of the globe liberal,
big hearted, progressive men. No better retail stores, no better wholesale or
Jobbing houses, no better banks, no
tor churches, no better municipal or
than right here in your homo town; all absolutely all made possible only by
and through tho co-operation and generous giving of tho business men.
But, my good friends, with all of
there are some things being done today

are to continue to grow and prosper.

it is in towns and cities, some good
