Mr. Andrew Iluncycutt, the old

Friday, in hi iCith year. The
Journal made 1ne11li.u1 some weeks
ago of the fact that Mr. Huneyciitt
had Isiiight a monument for him
self and wife. He was a link be
tween the present and the past,
and was full of interesting remi
niscences of the past. He had shot
buffalo and deer at the famous Big
l.ick, years and years ago.

Shooting fish has always been a
favorite smut with Mr. K. J. Biv-
ens, who lives 011 Kichardsou creek,
111 east Monroe township. And
one of his best ways of doing it was
to climb into a tree on the creek
bank and watch for the flsh as they
canu to shallow water. !.ast Tues
day evening he was thus enjoying
himself, when he accidentally fell
from the tree and broke hi leg.
It was broken in two places just
alsive the ankle. Mr. Iliveus is
one of the lcst farmers of the town
ship, aud his enforced idleness will
no doubt make him regret having
gone guuiiing for fish that day.
