There is a man going about this
town securing subscribers for the
News by false accusationo against
TtlK HekALD. In his conversation
with a gentleman this morning he
said: "Oh, that IlF.KALDl I would
like to take it and make a news
paper out of it if I had the money."
We would like to inform the wiry
gentleman that it takes brains as
well as money to run a newspaper,
and if the brainy gent would put
foith a little ot his voluptuous
knowledge on the News he might,
by and by, when the birds quit
singing and the cuckoos cease
cooing, make a paper out of that.
The gentleman may be a news
paper man, but his appearance is
decidedly against him. An article
voluntarily written by him for this
paper suitably reached the waste
basket. Grant him all the money
in the country and he could not
make a newspaper out of the
Hkkald or any other paper.

The ticoiilc residins alomr Palmetto
creek, Stmt li Carolina, us well as those
fur miles back in tlio "(slashes, are
highly excited over the appearance of a
strange ami uncouth creature in that
vicinity. The beast is described as be
ing a creature that far on tn test ho night
mare ideas of the- mythologies. It is
equally at home in tho water, on the
land or anions the. tall trees of the
ueighliorhuod, where it has leen most
frequently seen. Tho general contour
of the head reminds oue of some gigantic,
serpent with this exception: Tho "snout"
terminates in a bulbus, monkey faced
knot, which much resembles the physi
ognomy of some gigantic ape. From
the neck down, with the exception of
some fin shaped flippers, which extend
from the anus to the waist, the creature
resembles a man, only thut the toes and
fingers are armed with claws from two
to six inches long.
Tracks made by the beast in the soft
mud around Ilennis lake have been
taken to Donner's Grove, where they are
kept on exhibition in a druggist's show
case. Those who have seen the horrid
thing face to face say that it is a full
nine feet in height, which conld hardly
be believed only for the fact that the
tracks mentioned above are within a
small fraction of fifteen inches in length.
Fishermen who surprised the monstei
sitting silently on a mass of driftwood
declared that its back looked like an al
ligator's, and that it had a caudal ter

The neighbors around a certain corner
of Ash street were alarmed on Monday
night by low moans issuing from a close
ly curtained carriage that stood on the
corner. A driver sat upon the seat.
One of the neighbors came out and ap
proached the team to ask what was the
matter. Before he reached the corner
the driver caught sight of hiin, and
whipping up tho horses drove rapidly
on. ine loins were doubly alarmed,
and after a good deal of exciting talk
asked a policeman to call at the house on
the corner and ascertain who was hurt,
or if any mystery was in the moans. He
talked with an excited woman who
came to the door, and also with a man
who wiped his eyes with a handkerchief,
while the neighbors stood across the
street in suspicions silence. The officer
came over the street und told them that
the old family dog, the hero of dozens
and dozens of fights and of US years, had
been carried off to die by a bullet. The
dog evidently understood his fate, for
he began to moan and moan as soon as
they took him from the house. Lewis

During a severe electrical storm this
evening the Crescent oil refinery was
struck by lightning and caught fire, but
tho blaze was extinguished without
much damage. The house of Ferdinand
Kreiner wits struck by a ball of electric
fire, which exploded with tremendous
force. A fire alarm was turned in, but
the electrical display burned itself out
without even setting fire to tho house
Eyewitnesses say it was tho most re
markable sight they ever witnessed. An
enormous electric glolio of fire lodged
against the peak of the house, where L
hung, burning and spitting flashes of
fire until exhausted. Every inmate of
the place was more or less severely
shocked, the air being heavily charged.
All watches and clocks on the premises
were stopped and other electrical phe
nomena occurred. Bradford Cor. Pitts
The Inspection of Milk.
It has been proposed, and in some
parts of the country the law already
provides, thut the entire milk supplying
business shall be open at all times to
inspection. Such inspection should in
clude examination into the condition and
situation of wells in relation to all sur
rounding buildings, their proximity to
standing water or jkkiIs containing or
ganic matter, the condition of barns as
to warmth and cleanliness, the kind,
condition and healthfulness of the cown
from which milk is obtained and the
nature of the food given to them.
Inspectors should be at liberty to con
demn as unfit for milking any cows suf
fering from chronic diseases that might
be conveyed to man by tho use of their
milk. Youth's Companion.
Turtle eggs are an acquired taste with
most jteonle, although they are not so
with bears. They have a rough, yellow
yolk and a white like any other eggs,
but you can cook them for a year and
the white part will remain liquid. No
tice a curious dimple in the side of each
one. If you squeeze it out the dimple
appears on the other side, and you can
never get hoid of a turtle egg which
hasn't got a dimple in it Interview ia
