I have a toy rifle with the date 1884 carved into the stock which is wood, but the barrel, spring and trigger arc apparently manufac- tured, as is the bayonet. It was given to me several years ago by a distant relative who was born in 1880 in Ohio, and who gave it to mc shortly before his death in 1978. The rifle still works and can shoot a small projectile. How Can I possibly find out its value? No one rve contacted and sent photos to, seems to know. Stanley Stephenson, Atwood, IL A. It seems to me that the rifle might be a store model rather than a toy, To find out write gun rifle experts Richard Bingcr, Scott's Creek Armory, Inc. 2526 S. 475 W.

Q. loved the article about the Old Stove and would love to hear more about it. I was born in New Kensington, Pa (coal mines) grew up in Hatboro, Pa, and used an old wood-burning stove until 1954. I now live in a 200 year old farm house for 24 years that needed everything from a new roof to indoor plumbing, etc. I spent a lot of time and money but thanks to my son, now have an old wood stove in my kitchen with an added counter and converted electric cook top in it. as well as its original water tank. and wall oven - I just love it and wouldn't part with it ever. My children, and three sisters live close by, and we all have a great time exchanging stories around the old stove. Margie Haldeman, Doylestown, PA A. A free copy of Jack Mabley's warm and wonderful stove column published in the Chicago Tribune in 1980, is being sent to you, and to anyone else who sends a long self- addressed stamped envelope marked Old Stove Column to Anita Gold, P.O. Box 597401, Chicago, IL 60659. Incidentally 1 heard about a 'haunted' old cast iron stove from a reader who claims it talked to her. Could be, cause 1 have an antique tin pierced footstove that hummed tunes at one time, and stopped when my hus- band kept telling it to shut up. I keep hoping that one day the 'spir- it' will return and start humming again - such as "'I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You" espe- cially for my husband. Readers who may live in a haunted house, or may have a haunted possession, are welcome to send me the details to be included in future columns.

Section B -- The Times Leader, Thursday, November 27, 2003 II IIII II " by Dean Meyer tiello, You know, I get around a little. Not a lot, mind you, but a little. I've seen both oceans and Mexico and Canada. I've hauled horses several directions and hauled cattle across lhe country. I've been on the North Slope in Alaska and visited ANWR (that's the wildlife refuge they want to drill lot oil on). I've eaten tacos on the street in Mexico City and drank rum in Hawaii. I've sang with a band in Phoenix and led a riot in Kansas City. I've picketed with the blackjack dealers in Vegas and drove bus following a luau (that's when yell cook a pig in Itawaii). I guess mayhe I have been around more than a little, And I have never asked fiw directions. I guess maybe there are times I should have. Like when Shirley and I were in San Diego Ibr a cattle- men's convention, They had this bus tour you could go on. It cost like $50 tbr this tour. Now, for a country boy, that seemed a little steep. We had just left a banquet and Shirley was dressed to the tens. Long dress. Hair fixed, She cleans up pretty good. I had on a western suit, with a tie, and my Silver Belly Stetson. Oh, did I look nice. Well, everyone was going to go on this bus tour. 1 got to looking around and found you could ride "THE B US" for 50 cents. And it went all over San Diego. I mean this was mass transit at the finest. I grabbed Shirley, dug out a dollar and we got on "THE BUS" with the cleaning ladies from the hotel. Now, public transportation is a wonded'ul thing, if you know where you ate going. Which I didn't. But t'(, the next two hours, We saw all of S~ Diego. And everytime the bus stopped, we'd lose a couple of pret- ty good people, and pick up a couple of people that looked pretty shady. And we kept getting farther from where 1 wanted to be. ,-Darkness enveloped us and the sheet fights came on. Everyone was sta,mg at us, and 1 could see they were not impressed with my cowboy hat. Finally, I grabbed Shirley by the arm and jumped ship. 1 mean we ~ot off that bus with a sigh of rclicE As we hit the sidewalk and that bus drove away, I looked around. I tell you what, we had got off in lhe sleaziest area I had ever secn. There were gangs of guys all over and l'm not one to be prejudicial, but I can guarantee you, there was not a Norwegian in sight. And this was during the height of race riots and stuff. And here is this dumb ass in a cowboy hat, with a girl in a long dress, walking around the slums of San l)iego. I think Shirley would have outrun me, if I hadn't made a dive and caught the back of her dress and sh)wed her down. Well, pretty quick we are walkin~ down the street, And not having the slightest idea where we were going, People were whistling and hollering and laughing and pointing. A pretty good gang was starting to fl~lln that was tbllowing us down the street. I was walking real cool, like John Wayne. Which is hard to do when your pants are wet. Shirley was being rather critical of my choices of tours. Not very loud, mind you, but I guess you would classify it as con- structive criticism. Just when 1 was going to pull my fingernail clipper out and attack, a cab came screaming up to us and threw his door open. "Get in," he screamed! "What in the hell are you doing here?" Belore I could explain, he told us he was the last cab that would come down there that night. It was five to ten, and alter ten, cabs would not even come if called to that area. I think I tipped him with all the money I had. But, 1 did not ask directions. And dil'ections are pretty rela- tive, Will has some cows advertised 1'or sale. We had a call from a guy the other day from Minnesota. And 1 asked where he was from. Three and halt' hours from Eureka he replied, Now, I don't know if you've ever been to Eureka, but it is not some- place you generally use for a refer- ence point. You might say, three hours from Aberdeen or Fargo ot Bismarck or Dickinson or Mobridge. But this may be the only guy I know that lives three and a half hours from Eureka. Heck, I think I live there too!
