OX-TEAM CARAVAN IS FEARED SCALPED; LOST IN PENN. MTS.
Latest reports from the Federal headquarters of the Northwest Territory Celebration indicate that the ox-team party which left Ipswich, Massachusetts, early in December, is lost or has been scalped in the Pennsylvania mountains.
After setting out on a hazardous, snow-covered, 19-mile lap from Shippensburg, Pa., the group has not been heard from for the first time in its trip, which commemorates the pioneer movement of 150-years ago.
Victor over the ten Harvard Undergraduate "Indians" who staged an "attack" early in its journey, the Caravan has evidently met its match in the elements. Scheduled to arrive in Marietta, Ohio, on April 7, it has failed to reply to all telegraphic and telephone messages.
