Patrick Quinn Fires Three Shots into Frank
Frank Shupple of Portage, was shot
at that place Friday night by Patrick
Quinn, a resident of South Fork. The
shooting occurred in the bar room of
George Yeckley’s hotel.
Quinn was at Portage on a visit to
his mother during the afternoon.
While in the bar room in the evening
Shupple came in. There is an old
_ grudge between the two men and hos-
tilities began on sight. The two men
exchanged words when suddenly Quinn
‘drew a 82-callibre revolver from his
pocket and fired three shots into Shup-
ple’s body. After the last shot Shupple
threw up his hands and fell in a heap
on the floor. He finally struggled to
his feet and staggered out of the room
with all the appearance of being mor-
tally wounded. The spectators were so
taken by surprise that no one essayed
to follow him. Afterwards a searching
party was organized, but at a late hour
he had not been found. Quinn gave
himself up and was lodged in jail at
Later it was learned that the man
was found a short distance from the
hotel and that the bullets had only in-
flicted slight flesh wounds.
Made Another Attempt.
At a late hour Sunday night an at-
tempt was made to burn the fan-house
at the Sterling mine in Hastings, which
is in course of erection, and only the
hardest kind of work prevented ite
total destruction. After the fire was
distinguished it was found that certain
parts of the fan-house had been sat-
urated with oil. The building was not
damaged to an extent great enough to
cause the mine to shut down and they
were running Monday as usual after
a few repairs of burned portions had
been made.

Jewish New Year.
The Jewish New Year, or as they
term it, Rosh Hashans, began at sun-
down on Sunday night and continued
until 6 o’clock Monday evening. The
observance of this holiday continues
two days in all orthodox churches, but
by the reformed congregations it is
The Choral Society of Westover, Pa.,
| The Effect of Vibrations Upon the Cover-
ing of the Head.
In a recent scientific assemblage a
discussion took place upon the influ-
ence of sleep in skin diseases. One of
the gentlemen who took part stated in
his criticism of the paper which had
been read that one might as well talk
of the influence of music upon the
growth of the hair. It would seem that
the suggestion of a possible connection
thus thrown out in a jesting way has
been taken seriously. At least a corre-
spondent of Le Temps has made the
discovery that music of certain kinds
does in reality prevent the hair from
falling, while that produced by certain
instruments has the most disastrous ef-
fects in causing rapid development of
| baldness. He finds that while composers
| are as prone as others to lose their hair
at an early age those who play their
compositions upon the piano preserve,
if they do not acquire, a luxuriant
growth of hair. On the other hand,
wind instruments, and especially the
cornet and tfombone, are fatal to hir-
sute adornment. The violoncello and
the harp keep the hair in pretty well, but
the flute cannot be depended upon to
preserve a strong growth after the fifti-
eth year of age.
A number of pianists, including Pa-
derewski, are cited in confirmation of the
pronounced influence of piano music. It
has been admitted for some time that
music has a certain therapeutic worth,
and it will be recalled that Dr. Ferrand
presented a report to the French acad-
emy on the physiological influence of
music, pointing out what ways it
could be employed with therapeusio
aims. Subsequently Dr. Betzchinsky re-
ported an instance of night terrors in a
child of 8 years, who was cured by hav-
ing played to it each night music of a
calming nature written in a minor key.
A test was made after a few nights by
omitting the music, and that night
alone the child had an attack.
It has not as yet been determined just
what key is most favorable to the pre-
vention of an early bald state. Prob-
ably a reasonable way of settling the
disputed point would be to make a few
experiments on dogs, thus proving a
tolerance for different strains and avoid-
ing the horripilation to which some pa-
observed by one. According to the
Jewish calendar it marks the year |
5,658 in the month of Tishri. All dif-|
ferences between man and man are |
considered at an end, according to the |
Jewish belief, when Rosh Hashans is
ushered in. New Year is a season of |
done to effect reconciliation between |
enemies. Yom Kippur, or the day of
rejoicing, and everything possible is | oq
tients of refined tastes might be sub-
jected. Wind instruments .are always
dangerous if the hair has not a good
hold, while stiff haired people can
stand anything. Possibly a good rule
for any musician would be as soon as
he finds his hair falling that he should
Lung Troubles and Consump-
tion Can be Cured.
An Eminent New York Chemist and Scientist Makes
a Free Offer to Our Readers,
The distinguished New York chemist,
T. A. Slocum, demonstrating his dis-
covery of a reliable and absolute cure
for consumption (Pulmonary Tuber-
culosis) and all bronchial, throat, lung
and chest diseases, stubborn coughs,
catarrhal affections, general . decline
and weakness, loss of flesh, and all
conditions of wasting away, will send
ent) of his New Discoveries to any
afflicted reader of the PATTON COURIER
writing for them.
His ‘New Scientific Treatment” has
cured thousands permanently by its
timely use, and he considers it a simple
professional duty to suffering humanity
to donate a trial of his infallible cure.
Science daily develops new wonders,
and this great chemist, patiently ex-
perimenting for years, has produced
results as ‘beneficial to suffering
humanity as can be claimed by any
modern genius. His assertion that
lung troubles and consumption are
curable in any climate is proven by
‘heartfelt letters of gratitude,’ filed in
his American and European labra-
tories in thousands from those cured
in all parts of the world.
Medical experts concede that bron-
chial, chest and lung troubles lead to
consumption, which, uninterrupted,
means speedy and certain death.
Simply write to T. A. Slocum, M. C.,
98 Pine street, New York, giving post-
office and express address, and the
free medicine will be promptly sent.
Sufferers should take instant ad-
vantage of his generous proposition.
Please tell the Doctor that you saw
