The old gentleman had Iiooii ailing for a number of years, and at times his rheumatism got the bettor of him so that he was confined to his bed. but he had been no worse than usual, this spring, and on the morning of his death as was his custom, he assisted in doing some chores about the house and barn, and apparently was as well as common. With his son they lived alone; therefore ho was entirely alone when he died, but the condition of the bed showed that there had been no struggle—so that he must have quietly departed this life for his hope in glory.

Pocahontaa Rccorcf: And now comes the first Snake story of the season. Martin Dryzimski, of Belleville township, one evening last week heard an unusual noise in his pasture among the cattle and he concluded that tic would investigate the cause, so he went out and there he found his entire herd .wild with fright and he soon discovered the cause. He found a, very larg^ snake wound tightly around a three-year-old steer and the animal was fast succumbing to the terrible strain while his faithful dog wri's doing his utmost to kill the snake. The dog would m'ake Hinges at the snake but the sHakri was able to beat him off and to gradually squeeze the life out of the poor critter. As soon as Mr. Dryzimski ascertained the state of affairs ho immediately secured a very largo club and went in to kill his snakeship. After the first blow the snake let go his hold on the steer and made for Mr. Dryzimski, who saw at once he had run into a very bad fight, but nothing daunted he commenced to belabor tho snake which did his best to get his antagonist into his terrible toils, but Mr. Dry- zimski managed to get in a good blow on the snake's head that scorned to stun him and then by a few more well directed blows, he-dispatched him. The snake measured 7 feet and 4 inches iii length and 18 inches around tho thickest part. The snakcNvas taken to Manson and turned to Taxidermist Kline who skinned it ancLtho skin can now be seen in the window of the•Mansb'n Democrat office.

Monitor: Tongues were set wagging oh Tuesday by a bit of sensation that was sprung upon the public by a report appearing in the dailies that wife No. 1 was causing a search for J. D. Goulding, our band instructor. The report was from Eldora and stated that he is wanted for bigamy; that he has a wife and child in Massachusetts. Mr. Goulding is still in Burt and seems to have no fear of facing the music. We are informed that some disagreement exists between Mr. Goulding and the band boys at Eldora and that he has an enemy there. This may possibly account for the origin of the report, which it is to be hoped is unfounded. There Was a Hen On.
