James T. Troxell, who has been employed at Waltz's Pharmacy for the past several months, left last Saturday for his home in Gallitzin, having severed his connection with the local store due to other plans. While a resident of Nanty-Glo only a short time, "Jim" had established a fine reputation as a courteous and efficient salesman and leaves behind a large circle of friends, who will wish him well in all his future activities.
Miss Betty Roberts entertained at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Scaife last Thursday evening, in honor of
Joseph Hayes, it being his birthday anniversary. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Dewey Ross and son, Mr.
and Mrs. Walter Scaife, Mr. Joseph Hayes, and Miss Betty Roberts.
BY THIRSTY WORKMEN
Those fortunate souls who have thrilled to the exploits of "Long John Silver," "Bill Bones" and his parrot,
"Jim Hawkins" and the other jolly rum-hounds of Stevenson's "Treasure Island," will be able to appreciate
the feelings of the construction gang of the Penn Central Co. near Lincoln, who one day this week unearthed
a treasure that in these arid days ranks well in value with the chests of "pieces of eight" found on the
island by the merry rovers of the great pirate classic.
John Paul, aged 45 years, died at 5 o'clock Sunday morning at the Mercy Hospital, Johnstown, following an
operation for the removal of his appendix. He underwent the operation at the Eighth Ward institution
several days ago.
