An old flint-lock gun which, as the date on the lock says, was made in 1815 has been on exhibition in Noftzger's store window. Very few indeed of these old guns are now in existence and it is quite a curiosity and no doubt has a very interesting history. It is in a very good state of preservation and is the property of Charles Moyer, of Laketon.
