Word was received In Reynbtdsvi'lle
recently of tho death at Shclton, Wash
ington, of W. H. Knneland, a (fentleman
who was a resident of Reynoldsville
a quarter of a century atro and who was
well known to many of older resident.
While hero he was interested in lumber
ing, ,nnd lived on Fourth street. Older
citzens will remember a large skating
rink which once stood at the corner of
Hill and Fourth streets. This was built
by Mr. Knocland. After leaving Rey
noldsville Mr. Kneeland embarked in
numerous speculative ventures and died
very wealthy. A Shclton (Wash.) paper
spoke of him as follows :
No man .in Western Washington bad
as many enterprises under control, or in
dustries of so many different natures,
as did Mr. ' Kneeland. Ono of largest
loggers and lumber men in the state, he
turned his attention to tho oyster busi
ness, and was a great rfactor in building
up this great industry in tho state; he
own one of the finest ranches in the state,
spending more than 150,00 to .carve it from
the wilderness; he early saw the need
of a sound banking institution in his homo
town of Sholton and was instrumeptal
in the founding of one; electric lights
were needed when the town grew, he
built a light plant: mercantile houses,
hotels, railroad, iron works, real estnto.
all felt the guiding touch of his hand and
he with characteristic energy, took bold of
many struggling enterprises and built
them up to firm substantial institutions."

Rathmel between ten and eleven o'clock
Sunday night. TUb houses stood; close to

tiims ul right angles just at tht upper end
of Rathmel.
How the fire; originated ' unknown.
The houses wove- vacant and had been for
some time. Wlien discovered tho fire had
spread so far that it was impossible to do
anything with buckets in checking pro
gress and th was nothing: but to let
it burn to tlw end of the row.
A high wind was blowing, but fortunate
ly for the town of Rathinol blew toward
the oast, away .from the other houses in

amount to about $1,500.

Laura Hughes, became the bride of Henry
Weiss. Tho ceremony wns performed by

for tin) Hon. John K. Tenor for governor.,

It must have happened in a political
argument, foil A. B. Weed, who had tho
Cnptoin out for an auto rido the afternoon
the afternoons the marks, appeared, states
that that there was nothing particularly
exciting nn the trip. It !s ti-ui that nt ono
point In Rnthmol when' the Captain was
expecting tho auto to trn one wny, it
went the other way, whllo Mr. Reynolds,
who is a man of strong nonvicUons, in
sisted on going the way he-expected to go.
Tho road is paved with brick up tliere mid
the landing doubt a trifle hard, but
nothing to seak of. And it Is also truo
th it on the road home,, -nknmtlie siindov a
were falling, the carbide on. Mr. Weed's
machine gave a rather uncertiiin lUlit and
It was hard, to, boo a coal wagon in the
center of the road barely twe nty feet a way.
When the nuto.struck tho wagon, It la just
possible that tho Captain vt.-4s so surprised
that ho tumbled out of the auto a second
time nnd landed face. -first, on. th hard,
hard brick.
Those are little ploasanti-ic-j, Uiat go with
Joy riding on the crowded, thoroughfares
of Reynoldsville, and the Captain will
surely not blumo all Ills, soars on tho pilot
of the good ship FonL. Incidentally,
though he 'went to bed to rwt up after his
experience, and though he came out next
morning witlk.. a. bandage - tuviund bis head
and a cover over his right, eye. he found
his way to the (Kills and with his one
trusty eye located tho iirpt. black square
