To the american a i am a tending a few Days at this romantic Little Mountain town attracted hither after an absence of thirty years for the purpose of renewing associations with old and Well nigh forgotten friends. I need not remind Vou that in such an experience there is something to Remi my one of the trials of rip Van Winkle. It is True i have not been taking a prolonged Nap As was the Case with the hero of sleepy hollow but in Hgt int of absence i have gone ten years better than old rip. Thirty three years ago then a boy of Nineteen years 1 stood my first examination for a teachers certificate at this place. 1 won the coveted paper and at the Coal mines a few Miles Down the Valley taught my first school. 1 later became teacher of the school at this place following a line of successful teachers among whom was 1. G. Barber now a practising Iphy scian of Danville. Naturally the Little town the Center around which i swung for 3�?Tears during the most Rosy Ami impressionable period of life has always been a Bright and shining spot in my memory Aud the present visit is one i have looked loudly Forward to for Many years. 1 did t expect to find the town As 1 left it thirty years before but some How All the images that unconscious-13�?T lingered in my mind whether of landmark or individuals were Suchias 1 was familiar with in the Oblen Days it is something of a Shock therefore when the name of this one or that one is mentioned that instead of the Lively youth or Blooming Damsel that Oue has in mind altogether another sort of a person looms up before one a Man with Bent shoulders and face beginning to take 011 wrinkles or a matronly woman who probably has a second husband or is a grandmother. Ones first impression is that a cog has slipped somewhere but it does not take Long to reason it out. The effect of it ail is to make one feel something like a patriarch. Last evening i dropped into the newspaper office the proprietor of which was an intimate Friend of three decades ago. He was the same Earnest companion Al fellow but his face had a careworn a it Earnice Aud his shoulders were Bent As under a great Burden. He said the newspaper did it All. Then sad to relate too the new Spanier no longer lives Aud has a being. Friend started the paper. It served its Day Aud generation and then died the victim of Adverse circumstances. A running a w weekly newspaper is the hardest work in the my Friend made this Sage observation Aud punctuated it with a deep sigh. Among my Obi friends who Are making it very pleasant for me during my stay Here is or. F. Brundage who for eight years was american coups us at Aix la Oliai it Elle Germany. Or. Brundage retired from the consular service last september. He had Many interesting experiences Aud unearthed Many romances or rather tragedies in real life while dealing with the affairs of the two nations. Or. Brundage will Continuo to live at our Ogham Aud May eventually resume practice. There must be something in this Mountain air conducive to a longevity. It is surprising How Many people Are still living that 1 considered old thirty years ago. Even the towns a horrible examples and there were several of them who every one thought would die of their excesses in a few years Are still living and Are As a a horrible As Ever. F. g. 26 Hen his Lifite a up to last evening 26 members of company of 12 regiment n. J. P., had qualified in Rifle practice. This 1? considered an excels it showing. The men Are shooting on the Range every Day. m sergeant George r Gross Range master will meet the men each Day at 9 a. 111. Or at 2 p. Pleasant Surprise party.
