Great Bend - Seven calves, owned by James Florance, wandered onto the railroad tracks Monday night and were killed. Coming to the bridge, they found it impossible to proceed, and it appears two trains must have struck the herd simultaneously. The mangled carcasses were scattered for some distance along the tracks.

In the borough the concrete curbing has been put in from the bridge to the business part of the town. The contractors expect to have a large amount of work done before cold weather sets in.

On account of the new wagon not being finished they had to ride in a lumber wagon all fall. They hope to get the spring wagon this week.

Montrose - “A Girl of the Underworld,” that plays at the Colonial tomorrow night, has the distinction of being the best comedy drama before the public. In some cases it has been the prevailing thought that the film is risque, vulgar and suggestive. Its author, Jack Gorman, wishes to announce emphatically that “A Girl of the Underworld” will not offend or cause one pang of shame during its four beautiful acts.

Susquehanna - Susquehanna, generally considered a strong Democratic town, went Republican almost entirely on Tuesday. John V. O’Connell, Republican, was elected mayor over Dennis J. O’Connor, the Democratic candidate. W. H. Foster, Republican candidate for prothonotary, led the ticket, carrying the town by a 179 plurality.

Hallstead - George Crissel, of Smoky Hollow, was brought here this week to serve a 30 day sentence in jail, he having pled guilty to stealing chickens in February 1911. The hearing was held before Justice Williams in Susquehanna last Saturday. Chief McMahon made the arrest Friday night. The chief is bound to get them, even if a year or two does elapse after the commission of the crime.

News Brief - Leonard Chilson and Philip Kipp, of Towanda, were struck by a locomotive at that place Wednesday night, the former being instantly killed and Kipp probably fatally injured. The latter was called the strongest man in the world, having starred with different circuses and later was enlisted in the U. S. service which he represented at the Paris Exposition in 1900. Several months ago, at Towanda, he displayed his strength by lifting a steel bar weighing 1440 pounds. Another feat, never equaled, was that when he folded his arms four horses could not pull them apart.
