It was the Cat.
Jacob Sutter paraded tlirough his
nice new home one night lost week
with a shot gun in his hand looking for
what he supposed to be robliers who
were making an attempt to rob him of
his earthly ixwsesslons. A careful
search was made but no one found.
Mr. Sutter returned to his room and
soon heard the same noise again. He
went down stairs, opened the pantry
door and there found the secret of the
disturbance. The Tom Cat had been
accidently shut in the pantry and was
making desperate attempts to gain his
Never Could Read.
C. F. Hoffman, the jeweler and opti
cian, may be an expert in fitting glasses
on the eyes, but he has learned by ex
perience that he is unable to furnish
glasses that will enable a man to read
who has sadly neglected his school day
opportunity and cannot distinguish
words and characters. The optician
tried two or three pair of glasses on his
patient, each time handing the gentle
man a card and projioundlng the ques
tion, " can you read now ?" The opti
cian received the same answer every
tlmo, " I can't read." Finally Mr. Hoff
man comprehended the situation and
gave the man glosses with which he
could see, but not read.

Announcements wore mode lost week
in both the town papers, and quarter

Republicans of Reynoldsville borough
and vicinity would moot in Centennial
hall last Friday evening for the purpose
of organizing a Republican marching
club. The meeting was a complete
fizzle. A friendly shower, lasting about
ten minutes, visited tho town at eight
o'clock, which is accredited for the
non-attendance of the Republicanism
of Reynoldsville. Tho enthusiasm of
the followers of Harrison and Reld must
be at a low ebb during the present hot
Wages of Sin.
Tho good book tells us that "the
wages of sin Is death." A young man
of DuBols came very nearly pushing
tho veil of eternity aside and stepping
behind it on account of his proclivity to
tread in unforbidden paths. Thursday
night of last week James Murnhy and
four or five boon companions were not
seeking their "virtuous couches," but
were following three young ladles whom
they thought were not of good repute.
The young men were warned to retrace
their steps and not follow the girls, who
live several miles from DuBols, but
thoy heedod not the advice given until
two or three whizzing messengers from
a revolver gave warning. James Mur
phy was shot in the head. The girls
were taken to Clearfield Saturday and
placed In jail and were to receive a

Almost Resulted In Death.
Two Roynoldsvlllo boys, Frederick
Johnston and Chester Holnap, both
about eight years old, found a pint of
whiskey In Hclmtp's cuplsiurd Monday
ufternoon. The boys sampled the liquor
until there was very little left In the
bottle. Both lads become Intoxicated.
Young Johnston must have taken the
lurgost sample, as It was a mutter of
life and death with him for awhile.
Johnston was found UMin tho street
about 4:30 in a pnralizcd condition. A
doctor was called who administered
antidotes, but not until three o'clock
Tuesday morning was tho boy conscious.
The little fellow was in a critical condi
tion for some time. The Belnap boy was
found in the barn, although very drunk,
yet not In a dangerous condition.

The huckleberry party lost week
composed of Hays, Mincer, Westenburg,
Dunn, Rhodes, Schultze and Scott had
their first experience at West Liberty
when a "spalpeen" of that place throw
a piece of iron and hit Mr. Dunn on the
head, cutting a hole through his hat
and Into his head. After arriving
at their destination one of the horses
came very nearly going to "homeland."
but was Induced to remain on this
mundane sphere a little longer by hav
ing a quart of rank liquid "snake poison
killer" toured down its throat. The
fellow who had provided so carefully
against the reptile's bite, stood by with
a sad countenance and watched tho"fire
water" disappear. Nothing but the
thoughts of walking home could have
Induced him to part with the liquor.
Only a Lie.
It was rumored on the streets to con
siderable extent that some women were
out In the Big Soldier berry patch last
week and there found a child about two
years old that had cried itself almost
to death and the women could find no
one who claimed the waif, and that one
of them brought the child home with
her. The little fellow could soy "papa,"
"mamma" and "Tommy." There were
other facts that would Indicate that
there was some foundation In the
strange case. An investigation was
made by a representative of this paper
and it was found to have been a "yarn"
splnned by one skilled In that especial
line. The only foundation for the story
was the fact that at least one woman
was at Big Soldier and heard a baby
cry. Our informant thinks the baby
must hove been forsaken by its mother,
but she did not go to see.
We Need It.
A very Important question now storing
the citizens of Reynoldsville In the
face Is that of sewerage, and at no
distant day the people will find It nec
essary to grapple the question In an
earnest manner if we are to become a
flourishing town, and whether we will It
or not, a business boom Is slowly, but
surely creeping In upon us. There are
many reasons why we should have a
good Bewor system here, and there are
no reasons, save an outlay of a little
cash, why we should not be thus pro
tected from filth and disease that
accumulate where sewers are neglected.
Not only the sewer question, but there
are others of Importance to the town
which we expect to devote space In
bringing before the people In the near
future. We do not want to give the
people an overdose of improvements at
one time and will, therefore, take up
one subject at a tlmo.
Wrenched Hit Back.
Even a burgoss gets into "slippery
places" unlessahe is wary. Monday of
last week our worthy magistrate, in
company with H. H. Mincer, the terror
to evil doers, A. E. Dunn, and a few
others, hied himself to the mountain
ous regions of Clearfield county, where
the tempting unsophisticated huckle
berries lure many lovers of exciting ad
ventures, and whilo he was standing
on a rock in the solitude of the "snak
land" meditating upon the responsi
bility that rests on a man who is elected
to act as burgoss of Reynoldsville, his
foot slipped and quicker than he can
say, "five dollars and costs," he thought
about seven hundred Inhabitants of the
nether regions were having a "ho-down"
in the neighborhood of his spinal col
umn. A buggy was procured and Harry
Mincer brought Mr. Hays Into the in
habited part of Jhe county, and word
was sent to Rc$nofdsville and Ed. C.
Burns took a carrluge and went after
the disabled officer. Mr. Hays has since
been spending most of his time reclin
ing on the soft side of a lounge.
About 100 teachers from Clarion and
adjoining oountles are expected to

Tho much talked of McCrelght-Ayres
"false teeth case," which was brought
bo prominently before the public on tho
eve of Miss Ayres' marrlago, was tried
before Esq. E. T. McGaw last Friday.
The participants in this hubbub are Dr.
J. S. McCrelght and Mrs. Llella Snyder,
nee Ayres. The charges against the
dentist wore trespass and debonlsas
portatls, and amount of damage claimed,
2IM.IHt. Almost tho entire day was
spent in giving testimony and hearing
tho attorneys pleas. C.Mitchell appear
ed for the plaintiff and M. M. Davis for
the defendant. Esq. McGaw will with
hold his decision until tho 30th Inst.
Dr. McCrelght done dentist work
for Miss Ayres almost one year ago.
A bill was presented and paid, but
at that time the teeth were on a
temiMirnry plate and wore after
wards placed on a iiormanont plate.
The plaintiff claims tho bill puid In
cluded tho permanent plate, while tho
defendant claims it did not. The
matter was not satisfactorily adjusted
and on the evonlng before Miss Ayres'
marriage tho doctor called on the
young lady, as ho was going away for
a few days, and asked that the account
be settled. The young lady claimed
that as the five dollars was for repair
ing the teeth, that she did not owe it
to him, and, therefore, would not pay
what she did not owe. She .gave the
doctor the teeth to look at. The con
versation waxed warm and the doctor
loft the house with the teeth in his
possession, saying he would leave thom
with a justice and they could be return
ed to the mouth of the soon to be bride
when the "V" was paid. The prospec
tive bride employed another dentist
and before the dawning of the delightful
day a new sot of teeth was ready to
be present at the wedding. Thus
the above case was tho outcome
of a difference of five dollars between
the parties. In all probability the
judge of Jefferson county will hear a
recital of the entire cose before the
A Rural Chap't Experience.
An unwary youth from the rural dis
trict came into Reynoldsvlllo Saturday
and about noon went. Into tho store of
S. Ellis to look around and perhaps
make a purchase. During his visit in
the store an altercation took place over
a pair of shoos which resulted in the
young man getting a bad looking eye.
The young man's story places all the
blame on the Jews, whilo they claim he
wanted trust and as they would not
grant it, he was going to carry the
shoes away with him without their
permission and for that reason a lump
raised near his loft eye about the size
of a hen egg. The young man got a
warrant out for the merchants which
was placed in the hands of Chlef-of-Pollce
Adolsperger. After the war
rants hod been served the chief-of-police
took the rural chap in charge, for
whom ho hod been looking since the
2nd of July, the young mon hovlng that
night broken a whisky bottle on the
head of an inoffensive Swede. William
Boiloy, the culprit, was locked up for
several hours. The merchants, whom
he hod arrested, Bottled with him for
about twenty dollars, just enough to
get him out of his difficulty. The
young man was thus enabled to square
accounts with the law and return home
with a mournful eye.
