REYNOLDS GOES' OVERBOARD ON TliE GOOD SHIP FORD. Captain T. C.

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 wus.no 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 for straight out ticket.

Another Instance of heavy yield o potatoes on a farm near Reynoldax-illo was rolled to our attention last week. On a piece of ground 27 1-3 rods long and 8 rcd-j wide, amounting to about 1 Ut-30 acres, Earl Craven, of Washington township. nroduced 411 bushels of DOtaoes. The tubers wore grown on the farm of his. brother. Harry Craven, near Sandy Valley, and prove the results; that may bo secured by careful and scientific culture of tho soil. Another extraordinary thing about tlio crop was the size i-i the potatoes. Practically all wcigned close to two pounds apiece, and many of them went to two and a half and three pounds.
