BLOSSOMS  ON  PEAR  TREE
SECOND  TIME  IN  SEASON
----------
With Four or Five Bushels of Pears
on Tree -- Blossoms Burst Forth
Today, Transforming Tree In-
to Snow Whiteness.
----------
          One of the most peculiar incidents connected with plant life which has been reported has occurred at the home of  Mrs. Nancy White,  426 Colescott street, when a pear tree in the rear yard blossomed today making the tree a mass of white flowers.  In connection with the beautiful blossoms on the tree there are four or five bushels of pears, nearly ripe, making the phenomena the more unusual.
          The fact that the tree was budding was noticed a week ago, but little attention was paid to it and when Mrs. White stepped into her yard this morning she was greatly surprised to see the tree covered with the blossoms.

FINDS  HER  LOST  SISTER
----------
Two Women Separated for Twenty Years
Will Soon Be Reunited
------------
          Within a few days two sisters will be happily reunited after a separation of many years.  One of the women was formerly a resident of Fairland, but now resides at Sharpsville.  The two sisters were Nora and  Lulu White, who were admitted to the orphan's home at Greensburg on March 27, 1883, when they were respectively five and seven years of age.  On August 25, 1886, Lulu, the younger sister, now Mrs. Herron, was taken into the home of  Mrs. Ayres, near St. Paul, and on October 28, 1887, Nora was taken into the home of  Mr. and Mrs. James Grose.  After leaving the orphan's home, Mrs. Herron has never seen her sister, and until now has not been able to learn her whereabouts.  A newspaper reader who was well acquainted with the older of the two girls, now mature women, saw a notice of the search of  Mrs. Herron for her sister and identified her as Mrs. Will Lawson, now living at North Vernon.  An investigation of the facts affirms the identification and the two long-separated sisters will, no doubt soon meet in a happy reunion.

            Ed. White  was a prospective candidate for Prosecuting Attorney but the greedy gall of the Shelby county crowd who are after every thing in sight will probably keep Mr. White from presenting his name -- Franklin  Star.
