YEARS AGO !

It commenced snowing again j
Saturday night, Dec. 30th, 1876;
andi continued most of the day
Sunday. Sunday night the snow
was fully ten inches deep on a!
level—the deepest fall of snow,
witnessed in this section for twen-
Mr. Liberman is busy filling his!
ice house. He obtains most of his,
ice from the H&TC pond east ofj
the railroad track. The ice is j
about five inches thick and of a j
good quality Mr. Libermann saysj
he will fill his ice house easily!
and believes it will last him all j
New Years days passed off;
very pleasantly. It was delight-j
ful overhead and the heavy fall
of snow Sunday may the sleigh- j

dies kept "open house" and the
callers were numerous. Refresh-
ments were served
Capt. Kirk devoured his first
quail today, possibly with better
relish than he will the thirtieth.

Last night about 9 o'clock, Mrs.
Donald an aged lady who resides
on Tone avanue north of Bond
street, was returning from prayer
meeting when on Morton street
near Armstrong avenue, she
noticed that she was being follow-
ed by a mar;, She increased her
speed, so did her pursurer, who
presently came up with her and
spoke to her. She had passeki the
gate of A. J. Mosse's residence on
the corner of Scullin avenue and
being frightened desperately by
the man's familiarity, she ran in

And The Worst Is Yet To Come
and secured admittance to the
house. She told Mr. Mosse of the
circumstances and while that gen-
tleman was getting his pistol the
man, a negro, passed one of the
windows and looked in. Mr.
Mosse went quickly into the front
yard and encountered the darky
in the act of passing the door on
his way out to the gate. He thVew
up his pistol and snapped it at
him twice, but when on the third
pull it went off, but the time
the coon had been making out in-
to the street rendered the shot
futile. Mrs. Henrietta Banks was
attacked week before last in this
quarter of the city by a negro
and probably he and the ruffian
of the present instance are one
and the same. ,
Willis Lea was the lucky man
in the drawing of the Gate City
Jewelry company's "Watch club."
Willis is very well satisfied and
says it isn't a bad way to get a
fine gold watch.

Mrs. Rhod.es Garrett, the moth-
er of Mrs. H. S. Little, aged! 87
years, died Saturday the 2nd at
the home of her daughter, 705
West Chestnut. The remains
were shipped to Hays, Kansas, the
former home of the deceased, at
3:50 o'clock Sunday afternoon,
and will be interred beside the
grave of her husband. The re-
mains were accompanied to Hays
by Mrs. Little, Mrs. Sallie Hanna.
of Dallas, granddaughter of the
deceased. The funeral services
at the residence were conducted I
by Rev. A. F. Bishop pastor of J
the First Presbyterian church. j
There was a rifle in the citvi
today with a history. It was 70
years old and had drone good ser-
vice against the Kiawa and Co-
manche Indians a great many
years ago on the old Santa Fe
trail. This rifle is said to have
a record of twenty-six Indlians. It
belongs to Jerry Kerr. It was
brought here to be fixed.
It is the same old story. Ar-
thur Hobson, aged 15 years was
accidently shot Sundav in the
meadow of the Lawn Farm dairy.
The- weapon was a 22 calibre
rifle The bullet grazed the left
side of young Hobson's head,
just above the temple inflicting
an ugly and serious wound, but
d!id not penetrate the skull. It is
safe to say, at least thirty kids in
this city received guns for Christ-
mas. Guns that kill. Surely such
parents should be held responsible
for the eonseqences.

Phillip Hurlic, 10 years old and
black as anthracite, recently
threw a 'bewitchment around a
couple of hundred people, but it
left Master Phillip unconcerned
about everytftrirtg except beating
Oliver Hardy at a game of horse-
Master Phillip is one of the
featured players in the Hal Roach
picture "It's tSpring Again." For
the six weeks that the picture has
been in production, everything
has been oointed toward the time
when Master Hur'ic was to recite
the 274 T)rentable of the Declar-
ation of Independence.
But he was the only one of the
200 actors, technicians and execu-
tives who wasn't the least bit ner-
vous. He just wanted to get it ov-
er with so he could get back tt
tfh« horseshoe pame with Hardy.
There are many high-salaried
movie nlayers who can't remem-
ber their own telephone numbers,
much less remember 274 words of
dialogue. For that reason Produc-
er A. Edward Sutherland had lit-
tle hope tihat Master Hurlic would
get through with the scene in less,
thnn two or three days.
The day when the little Negro'
boy was to make his recitation
before the cameras,, the studio
wanted the boy to commune with
himself before the big scene
but the teacher who conducts
school on the set had other ideas
for Master Phillip. It was his d'ly
for the fourth urade arithmatic
exaiminatiort and he had to take
the test or she would not let him
play in the movies.
So the lad took his examination
first and then went before the
cameras. Director Gordon Doug-
las was worried producer Suther-
land stood around and knocked
on the wooden links of his wris.
watch chain, which he bought |
solely for knocking on purposss. j
The cast including Hardy, Har-
ry Langdon, June Lang, Billie
Burke, Alice Brady, and others'
feathered with extras, tee>inicians|
and studio personnel to se> Mat-
ter Hurlic in his big scene.
"When in the co'so um human
'vents "Master Phillip be-
gan, perfectly at ease, and a min-
ute with 45 seconds later finished
with ". . . .to throw off such gov-
ernment and to provide new
guards fo' their future security. '
' Four hundred hands, most of
them belonging to people who
hadn't heard the Declaration of
Independence since school days,
let (go a round of applause. But
the undisturbed lad grabbed hold
of Hardy's hand and said
"""'Come on now, Mist' Hardy wo
gotta finish those horseshoes"
