AN APPRECIATION OF THE RESOURCEFUL GROUND-HOG Nickolo Skippani, not Shipon, lot the past fourteen years a valued on of the Ontario Western la 1 road, with the section gang, in tlu yards in this city, was in'-.tantlv itil ed about Thursday afternoon by being struck and run over by en gine 307, at the WIsner avenue cms jng, as told in Thursday's second cdi tion. Skippani was tho assistant fovc man ot the track g'Tig, under Foie man Peter M. Johnson, and was en plojcd with his men in making pairs to tho switch on tho wesl-r' side of the lailroad at that poi.'1 about twenty feet above the noitl yard office. Engine U07, In charge of Charles Terwilhger and Condncto Charles Ducklasher, had arrived this city a short time before with string of coal cars, and bad pns'ie them on the receiving win- is tho outside, track on tho Nortl street side of the railroad. The members of the section ganc, who were, working on this track, had stepped out of the way to allow the train to bo backed into the switch, and then resumed their work. Skippani was standing with his back toward the train and did not hear the engine coming out of the switcli until too late for to es- cape being struck. He was knocked down and fell di- rectly across the rail, and the for- ward trucks and one of the driving wheels passed over his body. When the engine was stopped, the second driver was fairly upon the body. Members of the crew and the sec- tion gang, together with other em- ployes of the railroad, carefully ro moved the body, and Dr. Hulett was summoned, as well as Coroner Har- ding. Skippnni hnd been killed instantly, and Coroner Harding gave permission for the body to be removed to the mortuary parlors of P. J. Reilly. The coroner is holding an inquest into the death of Mr. Skippani this afternoon. Nickolo Skippani was born in Italy, the son of Nickolo and Anna SMp- pani, 32 years ago. He came to this country and fo this city fourteen years ago, and since that rime has been in the employ of the Ontario Western. lie was well thought of by his em- ployers as one of the steadiest nnd most reliable men in that department of the road, and had the esteem and friendship of a large number of friends throughout the city. Ho resided at 20 Ogden street, in a home which he purchased several years ago, and here his widow and two children, Nickolo and Anna, sur- vive him. His mother is also In ing in Italy, and one half-brother, Samuel Veraldl, of this city, also survives." The funeral will be held at the late home on Saturday morning at and at St. Joseph's Church at 10 o'clock, where a requiem high mass will be celebrated. The Inter- ment wil be in the family plot in St. Joseph's Cemetery. INCENDIARY PULLED GUN WHEN CAUGHT S Perhaps one reason Tor the atten- tion given to the traditional move- ments of the ground-hog on February 2 lies ia the intimate relation that has always existed between him andj the farmer's boy. AS the large major- ity of our people are still country bred the greater part of the American peo- ple have recollections of the part ho played In early life on the farm. There is a defiant self-assertion in the ground-hog that stirs the lust (jf pursuit in the heart of every livej country boy. Other animals of his size seek more retired homes in the shelter ot the forest. The woodchuck burrows within reach of your garden. At unguarded moments and amid the shimmer of moonlight he sallies forth, and adds to his already superfluous fat by gorging himself on your beans corn. If cornered he will fight anything and anybody. But daring as he -is, it. is rare that Towser catches him un- prepared. Usually his twinkling brown heels reach the hole several feet ahead of his pursuers. Then Brer Ground-hog about, protrudes his head for a second with a laughing chuckle, then retreats to the recesses of his home, to enjoy the sleep of the just while boys and dogs make fur- ther endeavors to drive or smoke him out. Tlie trap is about the only way to catch Brer Ground-hog. But even if caught, with indomitable resolution he gnaws off his leg, and lives many a day from the fat of your garden. With so resourceful and indomitable a foe in his back yard, it is not strange that irreconcilable antagon- ism exists between him and the farm- er's boy. Digging out a woodchuck hole is the normal celebration of a country holiday, like attending the motion picture shows in the city. Well do we recall the emotional ex- citement of an old village character of our youth on one such occasion. After hours of excavation he would keep putting down his ears to the hole, saying "I can almost hear him dig, I can almost hear him dig." A creature so so resourceful, and so bold must surely know the in- ner secrets'of nature. We advise tho Weather Bureau to drop their charts and reports to-day, and walch. the ground-hog! -says the Paterson Press.

The Ministers' Association of Mid- dletown and vicinity will meet at Westminster Church, 10 a. in., Mon- day, February y. I ftdvsriislno Talk That advert'sing can be made too sensational to produce the best results is a theory ad- varced by many men who have made the subject a study. Com- menting on this form of adver- tising, S. VA Strauss, in a re- before the Chi- cago Advertising Association, said: "Whirlwind is Injurious to the advertising business. The best investor is distrustful of the house that advertises in a noisy, unconventional way. Safety, soundness and security do not go through the streets bawling out their virtues, and the advertiser who makes such a noise rung counter to the fixed ard prejudiced opinion of the best Investors." Sensational advertising makes about the same impression on the newspaper reader as sen- sational news matter. There are two kinds of sensa- tional (so-called) advertising, however. One is injurious and one is not. The latter Is called sensational by some people be- cause of its great not because of its wording, etc. Our circulation books open to ALL.
