Solomon BITTICK has an old sow that got smart enough to open gates by inserting her snout under the bottom and lifting them off the hinges. To circumvent her he nailed an old scythe to the bottom of a gate, and the sow didn't try her snout on it more than once, but she has a good chance
now to laugh at her tormentor. One day last week, Mr. BITTICK's sister-in-law, Mrs. James WILLIAMS, came to visit his family, and the women, taking the horse into the lot, drew the gate onto one of his hind feet, and the scythe nearly cut the foot off. The horse has been in the hands of the doctor ever since.

S.S. BITTICK made affidavit that he did not think he could get justice in Central township, and venue in his case was changed to 'Squire BRYAN of Big River township. He is up for preliminary examination on charge of shooting at, with intent to kill, Josipha WILSON, his uncle by marriage. We believe we voice the sentiment of nearly all Central Township when we say that we hope the matter will be amicably and peaceably arranged and settle, without bringing it to court.
