      HOME OF DANIEL D. SNIDER.

      On my way from the site of the Black Horse tavern, I halted and spent a few hours at the comfortable home of the well known gentleman above named. It is the old homestead of his father, Samuel Snider, who settled here in 1825. He was born in Franklin County, Pa., in 1801, and. came to Canada with his parents when he was only five years of age. His wife, nee Mary Detweiler, was born Sept. 20, 1806, and died July 4, 1874 She was followed by the father May 15, 1887, aged 86 years and a few days. In a small log caban, south-east of the new residence they lived for many years. Within sight of their humble home on the same farm was an Indian encampment. The aborigines were familiar and frequent callers at their home, and with whom they would barter produce for small farming utensils, etc. Near by was a spring creek that teamed with speckled trout, a feature that evidently encouraged the Indians to remain in the vicinity in preference to other localities. Prior to settling permanently Mr. Snider and family lived on the old Christian Snider homestead near Doon for nine or ten years.

      Daniel D., the subject of this sketch, was born here Feb. 26, 1845, and on March 31, 1868, he was married to Miss Elizabeth Bricker, daughter of the venerable Benjamin Bricker. She was born April 7, 1847. They had six children and now live a retired life in a fine residence on the old farm overlooking the village of Roseville. The farm, lots 36 and 37, 11th concession, North Dumfries, contains 172 acres.

      Mr. Albert Becker, the son-in law, who married the eldest daughter, Elizabeth, purchased the farm some time ago. He is an industrious and practical young farmer. At the time of my visit he had on hand about 52 head of cattle and 50 hogs, and in both classes there are quite a number of fine animals. Last year, Mr. Becker produced 1,500 bushels of wheat and 1.800 bushels of other grain. He has also all the necessary machinery for grinding and cutting feed. In his horse stable 1 noticed two fine sorrels of Norval blood. One of them, Nelly, has quite a thrilling history. About A year ago Detective Ross, of the C. P.R, attempted to capture a burglar who came into Ayr riding behind the tender of an engine. In the scuffle, the barglar proved more than a match for the detective and escaped after exchanging compliments with the latter in the way of shots. The burglar remained in hiding until some time in the night, when he entered Mr. Becker's stable, took Nelly, and made good his escape. In the morning, when the absence of the mare was discovered, the telephone and telegraph lines were kept busy, but no trace of the animal could be obtained. Constable Klippert was engaged, advertisements inserted in the local papers and the Toronto Globe, and other means used to get a clue of the missing animal, but they appeared to be of no avail. Six weeks had elapsed when word was received from a man at Omemee who had noticed the advertisement in the Globe, stating that a mare answering the description of Nelly had been left in pasture with a farmer in that vicinity by a stranger. The latter had agreed to return in six weeks for the animal. Mr. Becker at once went to Omemee, and sure enough found his property, which he succeeded in bringing safely home after a journey of one hundred and fifty miles. He reached Omemee only a day before the time the burglar agreed to return and get the mare. Nelly, however, seems none the worse for her rough experience, but her value has been somewhat increased, it requiring an expenditure of about thirty dollars for telephoning, telegraphing, etc., before she was brought home again. Mr. Becker has several other fine horses in his stable.
