A few nights ago, a couple of gentlemen residing in this vicinity went out coon hunting, and after killing a couple of the plantigrades, they started for home, but when near Mr. John Golden’s place, one of the dogs ran a coon into a hole on a high bank near the creek.
One of the hunters investigated and found that he could not reach Mr. Coon with a long pole but said that if he had a spade he could soon unearth the varmint.
The second hunter said that he would get a spade and went to a house near by for the implement, but before he could return matters had changed materially.
The dog had partially dug his way into the hole and grabbed Mr. Coon by a hind leg and dragged him out of the hole. The hunter, fearing that the coon would get away from the dog, grabbed it by the throat with both hands, the dog hanging to his original hold on the coon.
While in this interesting situation, the man, coon, and dog fell off the high bank and rolled towards the bottom through a tangle of briars and brush. The man lost his hold and the coon fastened his teeth in the man’s leg, a few inches above the knee, and there he hung, while the dog also hung, but kept right on jerking at the coon. The man was the only one of the trio who failed to have a good hold, and the dog finally jerked the coon’s teeth out of his flesh and soon killed it.
When hunter no. 2 arrived his companion had a large rent in his trousers and a deep gash in his leg, the coon was dead and the dog was in the best shape of the three.

Be it ordained by the President and Board of Trustees of the Village of Hanover:

Section 1. That the Village of Hanover hereby grants to the Hanover Railway Company, a corporation, its successors and assigns all the permission and right in perpetuity so far as said Village has authority to grant such permission and right, to lay down, construct and forever maintain and operate lines of railroad with single or double track; the necessary switch tracks, turn-outs, signals and accessories for the transportation of passengers, freight, baggage, mail and express at all hours of the day or night, into, across, over, along and upon public streets, highways and alleys, in said Village as follows: Starting at the Northerly limits of said Village, over, across and upon Lowell Street; into, along and upon Jackson Street to the south side of Fulton Street; over, across and upon Franklin Street; over, across and upon the lots in said village on the east side of Jackson Street, owned by said Hanover Railway Company; over, across and upon Fulton Street; into, along and upon Washington Street to the south side of Fillmore Street; over, across and upon Monroe Street; over, across and upon Jefferson Street; over, across and upon Fillmore Street, and all other streets, highways or alleys which intersect or abut Jackson or Washington Streets along the line of said railway.

Quail hunters will have to keep their eyes open if they do not to be hauled up for shooting on other people’s premises

It is safe to presume that at least one of the hunters will not be so anxious to take hold of a live coon the next time he gets a chance

If farmers don’t commence husking pretty soon, some of them may have to dig it out of the snow some where about Holiday time.

Miss Orpha Lawton, who has been obliged to quit her position in A. W. Anderson’s store on account of her mother’s illness, was back in her old place in the store last Saturday for the first time in weeks.

Four quail hunters from Aurora, whose names we did not learn, arrived here Friday night and were entertained at the home of Mr. Chris. Goldhagen while here.

The Elizabeth News says that Rev. Father Krug is now in charge of the parishes of Elizabeth, Scales Mound and Hanover, and is further said to be giving entire satisfaction to his parishioners.

It is said that four children of Mr. Spencer Tucker, of Stockton, are down with diphtheria.

While chopping wood on his farm last Friday, Mr. Ed. Craig was struck by a falling tree and rendered unconscious by the blow. When he recovered consciousness he managed to extricate himself and walk home. Although considerably bruised, Mr. Craig had no bones broken in the mixup.

It is reported that Elizabeth, Stockton, Savanna and Dubuque banks stopped paying on deposits last week, because of the financial scare, but the Hanover banks kept right on paying out the money to depositors when called for, and nobody here seemed to be at all frightened at the shortage of the money market.

Last week, Mr. Jesse Nesbitt sold to Mr. John Freeman, a span of two year old geldings, weighing 3,200 pounds receiving four hundred dollars for the team. These colts were sired by an imported Belgian horse, Grison, owned by Hunt & Hunt, and weight and quality considered, they should prove a good investment for Mr. Freeman.

Post master Shipton is a trifle under the weather this week.

Mr. Elmer Dawson caught a fine mink just at the edge of town Monday night. The fur is said to be in fine condition now.

William J. Bryan and J. Hamilton Lewis are billed to speak at Freeport on Dec. 6th, under the auspices of a Democratic organization.

The first snow of the present season fell last Saturday afternoon, but melted about as fast as it fell, but on Sunday there was quite a little snow storm for nearly an hour, some of which stayed long enough to show the observer that there had been a genuine snowfall.

We are reliably informed that an effort will be made to put stock yards in here this fall, as quite a number of farmers in Derinda Township have signifies a desire to market their hogs and cattle here. Nothing could be done which would increase business in this village more than a couple of stock buyers who would ship from this point. The Elizabeth News says that Mr. Ben. Pierce, brother of Mr. M. S. Pierce has recently purchased a farm of 1,100 acres near Fargo, N. D. and has also purchased a large gang plow to be run by a gasoline engine, and capable of turning over 25 acres per day single shift and 50 acres with double shift. Mr. Pierce it is said will run the plow night and day until his plowing is finished.

An exchange says that the Farmer’s Institute for Jo Daviess county will be held on Thursday and Friday, Jan. 16 and 17. The speakers on Thursday will be: Morning, Mr. Older, and Mr. A. N. Abbot, and the same gentlemen will speak in the afternoon, also. In the evening Dr. Frank H. Hall and Dr. Forbes. Friday morning, the speakers will be Dr. Crane and Dr. Forbes. In the afternoon, Theodore H. Ellis and domestic science. Evening lecture by Mr. Hall.

The Bellvue Leader says that on Tuesday evening of last week, when Mr. John Lundin, of that place, went to his home at six o’clock in the evening he found his wife lying dead on the kitchen floor. A physician was summoned but could do nothing as the lady had been dead for some minutes. It is supposed that death was caused by apoplexy. Miss Hilda Lundin, Co. Sup’t. of schools of Jackson Co., a daughter of the deceased was called from Maquoketa. Mrs. Lundin leaves a husband and four children to mourn her sudden demise.

According to the Gazette, Galena has a real spook, but whether a dead or live ghost, that paper does not state. It does say that a spook resembling a man carrying a lantern goes from Horseshoe Mound to Shot Tower Hill, between seven and eight o’clock in the evening, and then disappears. It further adds that some people in this section think that it is the uneasy spirit of a railroad man who was killed near there by a collision of two I. C. Trains several years ago. Maybe they have a lot of marsh gas up the Galena way, as that has often accounted for spooks which carried lanterns.

According to the Gazette, Hallow E’en cranks did lots of damage in that city on the night of Oct. 31. Sidewalks were torn up, wagons dumped into the river, shutters removed, gates smashed and much damaged done to property in general. One lady sustained a fractured limb by falling over a wire stretched across the walk. Such crazy foolishness should be severely punished if the perpetrators could be found out. There was nothing of the sort in this village, as no damage was done worth mentioning, but there were four Hallow E’en parties here that night and gave Young America a respectable outlet for superfluous animal spirits.

Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Bowers of Galena visited for a day with the lady’s aunt Mrs. A. Killough.

A basket social and programme will be held at the Edgerton School Friday Nov. 15th. Everybody welcome. Ladies bring baskets.

Mr. David Sanderson of Rodden accidentally cut his hand open with an axe. Dr. Cottral dressed the hand and had to take several stitches to close the gash.

Messrs. Elmer Dawson and George Robinson started out on a trapping expedition Monday morning, and if they have good success will probably follow up the business until it freezes up.

Storey & Schwartz sold a hot air blast stove to J. L. Mason, a cook stove to Wm. St. John and a hot air blast heater to Marion Atkins last week. This makes about 25 stoves this firm has sold so far this fall.

T. D. Shipton has about the finest and best line of overcoats, and the largest assortment of these garments we have ever seen in Hanover, and if he cannot suit you both as to style and quality, price included, there is but one thing left for a purchaser to do, and that is to do without an overcoat this winter.

A few days ago Mr. George McKinley found a fine sheep out of his flock lying dead beside the road with a bullet hole through its head. Whether it was shot by hunters or by some malicious person, Mr. McKinley does not know, but he does know that somebody’s meanness or carelessness has left him six or seven dollars to the bad.

The Gazette says, Galena hoodlums have amused themselves pelting an old man, named Bell, with rocks. From this and the Hallow E’en foolishness going on at the Hub, we should imagine that what Galena youngsters need, is to be hauled up before a J. P. and given a few good, solid fines, which the dear fathers will have to ante up, as that would throw the restrictions needed into the hands of the fathers of these hoodlums, who probably wouldn’t relish paying fines, but might be induced to use the strap effectively on their hopeful boys.

Mrs. John McIntyre is a Dubuque visitor today.

Mr. T. E. Moore of Galena came last night to visit his brother, James Moore, and to also hunt quail.

Mrs. Clint Farwell returned last week from an extended visit with her sister, Mrs. James Elliott of Aurora, and she also visited Rockford relatives while absent.

Mrs. Mary Graham returned Saturday from Des Moines, where she was called several weeks since by the serious illness of her son’s wife, who is now reported to be much better.

Mr. Wm. Hotchkiss, who resides between this village and South Hanover Station, has two sons, aged about 11 and 13 years, who have made quite a reputation as hunters and trappers, as they have trapped about 70 groundhogs this fall. Last week the lads set a number of steel muskrat traps around the carcass of a horse which recently went the way of all horse flesh.
On Saturday morning, the boys visited their traps and found a large gray wolf entangled in their collection of small traps. And as soon as they saw the wolf, one of the lads ran home for his .22 caliber rifle while the other stayed and watched the wolf.
On returning with the rifle the boys opened fire on the wolf with short cartridges, and after pumping about 20 shots into the animal, knocking out both eyes and otherwise crippling it, they finally stabbed the wolf to death with a knife.
The wolf is said to be one of the largest ever seen in this section, and the lads, will, of course, get the bounty on the scalp and keep the hide for a rug.

Kankakee - Judge Frank L. Hooper, in the circuit court, denied Attorney S. R. Moore’s application for an injunction to restrain the board of education from permitting "prize fighting" in Kankakee schools. Judge Hooper’s ruling did not recognize the synonymity [sic] of prize fighting and football assumed in the injunction petition.

"Boards of education," Judge Hooper ruled, "have no right to interfere with the pleasures or training of school children after school hours. A private citizen has no right to interfere in such matters unless he has sustained some pecuniary injury."

Attorney Moore made a hard fight to convince Judge Hooper that the term football was a mere subterfuge for prize fighting, and as such ought to be prohibited. His argument was aimed especially at Principal L. W. Smith, of the Kankakee high school, and F. N. Tracy, superintendent of schools.

In his argument in favor of his bill the attorney quoted everything from the Bible to the last issue of the Medical Journal. He pointed to the fate of Cain and Abel as being that in store for the boys who indulge in the "brutal, violent, and uncivilized’ school game. "Rooting" he held to be an evil scarcely less dangerous than football.

The superintendent and principal of the high school during school hours teach the boys and girls to give a certain yell," he said. "They tell them to go out and ‘root’ for their school. I don’t know what they mean by ‘root.’ I went to college five years and I never ‘rooted.’ The man who does such things has no right to be over children as a teacher."

"Recently," Mr. Moore concluded, "Attorney W. J. Brock, of this city, was approached by a member of the Kankakee high school football team, who said to him: ‘Will youse guys buy a ticket to our football game?’ If football is responsible for teaching such language that is reason alone why it should be stopped."

Despite Judge Hooper’s ruling against him Attorney Moore doesn’t admit defeat. As the bill proper doesn’t come up until the January term of the court, Judge Hooper cannot dismiss it until that time. In the meantime Moore declares he will appeal the decision.

Garnish for the Salad
The garnishing of salads is a separate feature of salad preparation, and one less in use in private families than in restaurants, yet for certain salads the art is a good one to know. The perfect chef never forgets to appeal to the eye first. The ordinary garnishing is to line the bowl with small lettuce leaves for a meat, fish or fancy vegetable salad, and to have it arranged so that a fringe of curly crisp leaves surrounds the top of the salad bowl. Pitted olives cut in half, a sprinkling of capers, finely cut mushrooms, tiny yellow lettuce hearts, lemon or vegetable dice, hard boiled eggs, quartered lengthwise or chopped fine, celery tips, white rings of hard boiled eggs or golden discs of the yolk hard boiled, shredded red peppers, parsley, etc., are always effective for garnishing purposes. Flowers, wheels and various geometric designs may be carried out by the use of these garnishes and by arranging the salad for the framework of the design, if it lends itself to this use. Oranges, apples, nuts, grapes, tomatoes, green peppers, pimentos and grape fruit are among the unusual but delicious salad foundations which are reasonable and wholesome. The dressing for each of these, usually a French dressing, must be seasoned and blended with due regard to the acidity or sweetness of the salad foundations. The proportion of vinegar always depends upon this acidity.

Golden Buck
Melt a tablespoon of butter in a frying pan, and stir into it three cupfuls of grated or shredded cheese. As soon as it begins to become thoroughly melted, put in hot water. Stir until the mixture is thick and smooth, add a saltspoonful each of salt and dry mustard, and serve on rounds of hot buttered toast. At the moment the cheese is done, there should be ready a poached egg for each person who is to partake of the dish and every round of toast with its portion of the cheese should have one of the eggs served upon it. This dish will be injured by standing for even a few moments. It is therefore a good plan to make the cheese part of it in a chafing dish, and have the eggs prepared in the kitchen and brought in just at the instant when they are required.

To Iron Shirt With Collar Attached
To iron a shirt front with a collar attached, when dry, it is placed upright on the table and slightly curved to enable the front to lie flat on the table. The front is rubbed with a damp rag, the stitching stretched and the fullness regulated. It is then ironed like an ordinary shirt front, only being detached, it may be ironed on the wrong and right side alternately until it is dry. It is polished in the same manner as collars.

A New Definition-And Many Are Will To Say Senator Platt Was Right
A rather cynical joke has been recently credited to Senator Platt.
The senator, on his last visit to the Manhattan Beach hotel, allowed a pretty little girl, a western millionaire’s daughter, to be presented to him.
The little girl, in the course of one of her many chats with the aged statesman, said: "Tell me, won’t you, senator, what political economy is?"
"Political economy, my dear child," Senator Platt is said to have replied, "is the art of never buying more votes than you actually need."

Say "Hello" to Heart Throbs
"It is a curious thing," said a prominent lecturer recently, "how some books have a strong radiating personality, so that you feel like saying ‘Howdy’ every time you come across them. Last Christmas I visited friends back at the old home on the farm. When the supper dishes had been put away, the chores done and the evening lamp lighted we gathered beside the organ for a good old fashioned ‘sing.’ On the center table were strewn the Christmas remembrances taken from the Christmas tree on the evening before. Glancing over them I suddenly exclaimed ‘Hello! My good friend, Hello!’ and as the others looked up in surprise, I picked up a copy of ‘Heart Throbs’ and read to them from its pages the ‘piece’ I spoke in school 40 years ago.

"That was enough to set in motion the friendly entertaining spirit of Heart Throbs, and the music was forgotten as we took turns reading the humorous and pathetic bits of prose and verse that have been preserved in this wonderful volume. Some books have great literary value, some have historical significance, but Heart Throbs is the only book I know that slaps you on the back in a friendly sort of way, suiting itself to your moods and proving faithful to every emotion. Next to my love of the Bible I love Heart Throbs. It is the most notable book of the times."
