Barnes, County Superintendent. Another Chicken Raid. Michael Augermeyer was disturbed in his midnight slumber Saturday night, by the cries of his hens in the hen house. He took his smoothbore, double barrel shotgun and tired three shots at the fleeing thief who was heard to go in the direction of the graveyard. A few minutes later a hen was heard to complain about the intruder but the sound was quickly choked off. Michael took good aim in the direction of the sound and fired once more. He missed because all of our recognized professional chicken thieves were around town Sunday morning apparantly unharmed. All the neighbors were awakened by the shots.. Joseph Meyer claims to have seen the thief find 4iis way out of the maze of monuments and crosses in the graveyard by means of a flashlight. P. L. Poster heard a team drive rapidly by about the time the first shots were fired. It is more than probable that the thief had a confederate in wait with a buggy or light wagon to haul the booty home. FOUND SOME GOOD WINE. Townboard Joe. Otremba, while in the village Monday related an incident he witnessed last week while picking raspberries in section 29, Hillman, which may be doubted by some, but which he claims to be true. He saw about half a dozen rabbits rolling, gambolling and performing all sorts of antics near a large cluster of raspberry bushes in a small stony hollow. Protected on the north and west by bushy Norway pine trees, the place was almost as hot as an oven. A depression in the ground under and around the bushes formed a sort of a basin in which about a barrell of water had gathered, and into which ripe rasberries had fallen, fermented, and produced an intoxicating drink for the rabbits. A strong odor of wine gave Joseph the hint. He got down on his hands and knees jtnd drank several quarts of high grade goods and felt just as -well as if he had attended a towsj^oard meeting. Joseph calls the spearers attention to. the Jocation of this wine mine--Hillman, section 29. Mrs. Ucy Allies Dead. Mrs. Luoy Abies, pioneer resident of Steirns county, died at the famir home in Pleasant Lake, Thursday afternoon at 4:30, death being due to com- AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JOHN HEACH. Below the reader will find the first contribution of the autobiography of John Heach, a well known character about Pierz for the last twenty-five years. John explains that he chose a Johnsonese or slightly bombastic literary style because lie deemed the importance and weight of the subject in hand worthy of sentences of such learned length and thundering sound that their echo may the longer linger in 3-our memory. John evidently believes, as did Alexander Pope, that "The sound should be an echo to the sense." LIGHTNING STRUCK KUGEL'S HOUSE. I have often been solicited by eastern magazine and metropolitan newspaper representatives to pen for them a brief sketch of my very eventful life, but diffidence and perhaps lack of egotism on my part as often forbade. But in this, the 86th year of my age, fully aware that there can be few important additions or great modifications during the brief space of life remaining to me, I decided to give my biography to the Pierz Journal, among the readers of which I have spent over a quarter of a century. By doing this I hope to put at rest the curiosity of the good people of eastern Morrison county, in the eyes of whom I have ever been a sort of a wandering refugee; and I must confess that to a certain degree, I glory in the distinction. That I am mysterious is because my mission Lightning struck the John Kugel residence shortly after midnight, and did considerable damage to both chimneys and to the partitions on the first floor. It seems the bolt covered a large area, because opposite sides of the house were damaged aud even several of the shade trees in front of the house were split. A small blaze was started on the roof, but was promptly extinguished by J. B. Hartmann, Herman Faust, John Boehm and others with a fire extinguisher. Fred Rieke was sitting within a few feet of the wall damaged most, but felt not the slightest shock of electricity. Damage is estimated at S200. plications. ^ She had been ajamon£ y°u is to solve a great resident oi the county 56 years I mystery.

My circumnavigation of The Lastrup Liar. The Lastrup liar was in the village Tuesday and gave us his experience with bees. He had four hives last year and got only eighteen pounds of honey. His breed of bees Was of a pedigreed, heavy producing strain, so he failed for a long time to account for the small profit. Finally he discovered that tin} place his bees eall their- Homg was too heavily shaded and overhanging wit-1, *— ,-^x uees to allow them to work the regular ten hours union schedule. The liar didn't care to move the hives nor did he care to cut down the trees. While he was discussing several plans with his better quarter or half, Theo.

Theodore advised him to cross his bees with lightning bugs, to enable them to work in the dark, which he did; and now Christ Schlegel is gettiug more honey than any other man in Lastrup. of age.

Wahkon—The worst electrical storm in tive years passed over this section on early Wednesday Lighting entered J. N.

The escaping gasoline was ignited but was quickly extinguished. nothing, it was for a deep purpose. Only that, and nothing more. A careless remark, or a casual passerby means nothing to the ordinary man, but may be of incalculable value to the professional Sherlock Holmes. I have been your sport and have long been the butt of your jibes, jeers, scoffs and taunts, but endured them in silence. Only fools try to fool others and you in trying to make a fool of me showed yourselves to be fools, because you failed to see that what you tried to do had been done many years ago. If this is too subtle for your dense analysis, pass it by. You are too late for my improving. You see John Heach sitting on the benches in front of stores and other places of business in the middle of the forenoon, and The Horse to His Master. I am a horse, You are a man, I've been your slaves Since I began, \nd though I'm strong Enough to shake My shackles off And make a break For freedom that Would lift the lid, You've noticed That I never did. By day and night I've worked for you And done the best That I could do; And though I may not Always like Your methods, yet I never strike; In heat and cold, In wet and dry I'm always ready— Glad to try To do the very Most I can To satisfy My master, man. Therefore, my master, If you please, Considering Such facts as these, Say, don't you think It ought to be Your pleasure To look out for u»?. If for no other rv6ft«on that My great usefulness To man? Of course, you might be worse, I know \\>y Sometimes treat your own kind so, But I'm a horse, And truer than The man-slave to his master, man.
