"I didn't find the west so very tame,"

"There was great excitement in Gunnison

seemed there had Just been erect d a very
fine new Jail and the authorities wero anx

a court-mariial, cr something, over the
cowboy and sentenced him to Jail for ten

that ws enough for one lifetime, and when
I was about to go I looked uround for tho

Tho public is generally conversant with
the annual custom of paying "one red
rose" as ground rental In eastern Pennsyl
vania churches to the descendants of those
who gavo the ground for tho edifices; but
It Is not generally known that hundreds of
owners of farms are under a similar obliga
tion. "Xied rote rent" is yearly paid every' sec
ond Sunday In June In the Lutheran church
at Manhf-lm. Lancaster county; In the Tul
ixhnckeu Reformed church, about sixteen
miles west of Reading, and in several cdl-
Ilces in Ixjbanon county, while several con
gregations In Berks are. entitled to obervs
the event, but do not.
Rosed paid o Mli. S ' occasions to repre

such provisions an- treasured us priceless
heirlooms, and at Miinheim tin y l.avo tome

It is known to f w that more than V'A
years 'ago great, tracts of farm land were
sold uround Reading with the same stipu
lation It is nUuie'.ed thst at least
acres of land in Berks are subject, because
of a cluuso in t;ie original dfds, to an an

Records of the Berks court house show
that many years before Baron Htigel pro
