Bit by Copperhead. Old Remedy Applied.
Hugh Miller, a 14 year old
lad of near Trading Ford, in
Providence township, was
bitten on the leg just above
the right ankle by a copper
head snake in his father's
pasture on Monday. He at
once hurried to his home and
told what had happened to
him and showed his leg
which was very much swollen.
There was no physician near
and no time to be lost, so an
old time remedy was resorted
to. A young chicken was
killed as quickly as possible,
split open and applied
while warm to the bite and
allowed to remain there some
time. When it was removed
the swelling had in a large
measure gone down and the
part of the carcas of the
chicken which had come in
turned verv dark. The last
report is that the youDg man
is doing nicely.

What Some Rowanites are Doing Elsewhere
Dr. McNaairy, proprietor of the
Foot-Hill Sauitorium, made a
generous offer of rooms or a ward
to be fitted up, and kept by the
Classis, when any member of the
Reformed church might be treat
ed for whatever ailment he has,
and the'oxpenae will be a mere
song. The offer was accpted with
a rising vote. A committee con
sisting of Reys J. M. L. Lyerly,
C. B. Heller and Shuford Peeler
was appointed to take this matter
in hand, confer with Dr. McNairy,
and raise funds for furnishing the
rooms. The various pastors are
to present the matter to the con
gregations and take offeriugs for
this work during the year. Two
individuals have pledged them
selves ten dollars each for this
work. Let others respond. Tend
in your pledge to the committee.
It is the purpose of the Classis
to make it possible for any and
every member, no matter how
poor to have all prcper treatment
and care here. With reference to
the Hospital, we can unhesitat
ingly say it is equal to the best.
There are among the physicians
three members of the Reformed
church, and these are specialists.
