Susquehanna - A resident of Church Hill has a bird dog, also has a flock of 20 or 30 hens. Neighbors on all sides have hens which do not materially differ in appearance and which stray into the inclosures of the dog, and associate with the hens which belong on the premises. The strange part of this circumstance is that the dog will select from the flock of hens that do not belong there and drive them out every time they make their appearance, and he never makes a mistake. Is it instinct or is it reason? Now don’t anybody say, “It’s neither, it’s a lie,” because it is an occurrence that can be witnessed any day. AND The Chief-of-Police yesterday received a letter from Pittsburgh saying that a man named Thomas Cox is there for murder. He is about 21, six feet high, slim, smooth faced, weighs 180 or 190 pounds, has light brown hair, black, piercing eyes, wears dark clothes, and can’t look you straight in the face.
