Decoration Day at Georges
Valley and Spring Mills.
With a number of our fellow-towns
men and ladies we attended decoration
ceremonies at Spring Mills and
George's Valley on Monday. It was
the first tiir>.9, we were told, that the
sad but beautiful custom of strewing
the graves of the patriot dead with
flowers was observed at either place, in
a public manner. The orders and
societies that participated were the
Spring Mills Veteran Club, the Drum
Corps, Farmers' Mills Cornet Band,
Millheim Lodge No. 955, I. O. O. F.,
accompanied by the Rebecca members,
and the Sunday Schools. A vast num
ber of people were present at both
places. Everything was done in a
manner and spirit becoming the oc
casion. The singing, the music, the
decorating of the graves, were all per
formed with due feelings of the solem
nity af the day. Rev. J. Benson
Akers delivered a short but very im
pressive address at George's Valley.
It was above the average plane that
such speeches generally take; and what
is especially commendable—entirely
free from anything like partisan tinge.
We will allude to but the one prom
inent thought of the Rev. gentleman's |
speech, namely: That while it is fit
ting to foster and cherish the sad
me mories of the past, we must not for
get our duties to the present and
future. That we must establish our
continued prosperity as a people ahd a
nation in the christian education and
training of the young. Grand, noble
At Spring Mills no address was
made, owing to the threatening ap
proach of a rain storm, Prof. D. M.
Wolf and Rev. John Tomlinson were
present, either or both of whom, it
had been expected, would speak to the
vast concourse of people assembled.

useful articles too numerous to men
tion. Go and see for yourself.
—llarter, Lose & Co., our enter
prising undertakers, are laying in a
fine stock of shrouds of every de
scription and price. This is certainly
an important addition to their well
stocked establishment, and does away
with an unpleasant and tedious job in
case of a death. Th e shrouds are got
ten up in a neat and rich maimer and
the prices are such as to enable eveu
poor people to get them whenever the
sad necessity occurs.
—o7*3 of the best conducted hotels In
Central Pennsylvania is the Irvin

care of a fellow and make him feel en

a large run of custcca and deserves it j
—lt is the duty of our borough au
thorities to keep better order on Tour
streets. Fights occur almost nightly
among men and bovs and there is no
constable or police to prevent it. Curs
ing and the most indecent language
is hourly heard and an • utter disregard
of law and order is manifested by the
coming generation. If left to a vote,
the people would demand police by a
tremendous majority. Why don't our
authorities not?—Lewisburg Jour nil.
Yes, why don't they. It is surpris
ing that a staid, steady towu like
Lewisburg, with its line large church
es, good schools add college, the prov
erbial high moral tone of her citizens,
should long suffer such a state of af
fairs. It is really unaccountable, un
less the real reason is that the 1 suostan
tial citizens shirk responsibility—and
this may truthfully bo said of -many
other towns than Lewisburg.
—Rev. S. G. Shannon, Financial Agent
of the Missionary Institute, at Selins
grove, Pa., gave us a call last week
and left us the current catalogue of
that institution. It has a preparatory,
a classical, and a theological depart
ment. Dr. Henry Zeiglcr, well and
widely known as an able theologian
and successful teacher, Is the Superin
tendent arid Professor of Theology.
Since 1858, when the institution was
opened, ninety-eight ministers have
graduated fioin it, only four of whom
have since died, the others being near
ly all engaged in active service for the
church. These figures speak well for
the character of the Missionary In
stitute and its corps of able professors.
Hope It may continue to flourish and
do much good for the church and the
NEWS FROM BRUSH.
A CORRECTION. In my last, when
refering to Rev. Wieand's term of
vacation, the article was made to
read May Ist. It should have been
July Ist. Be careful. [Yes, we are
trying to be, but are unable in this
instance to locate the fault. Ed.]
Decoration Day was observed here
on quite an extensive scale. A dele
gation of upwards of 300 men, women
and children, headed by the Brush
Valley Cornet Band, went to Madison- !
burg, where appropriate services took
place. Speeches were made by Revs.
W. H. Stover and S. G. Shannon.
The delegation returned to Rebersburg
between 4 and 5 o'clock, amid a heavy
rain and hail storm. Of course many
came home "wet to the skin," but
this unpleasant occurrence did not
seem to dampen the patriotism of the
people, and the fallen heroes buried in
the Rebersburg cemeteries were not
forgotten. Speeches were here, made
by Revs. Shannon and Wieacd, as well
as by Squire Haines and the Marshall,
Mr. Spangler. . .
Taken all in all jthe occasion was a
Arrested for Gambling in Lives.
READING, Pa., May
tion was to-day lodged before Alder
man Brown well, of this city, against
Dr. L. C. B. \orgey, of Pottstown,
and Albert BeHaven, ot Monocacy,
charging them with fraudulent con
spiracy in procuring policies of insur
ance in the State Capital Mutual Be
lief Association, of Ilarrisburg, in the
sum of 5,000, upon the life of Daniel
Gehris, of this place, who died one
week age. Infoimation was also
lodged against the samo parties for
false pretence. The warrants were
placed in the hands of Constable Loah,
who proceeded tc Monocacy and Potta
tow.n and effected the arrest of Yorgey
and l)ellaven. The evidence is to the
effect that Daniel Gehris, upon whose
life the Jinsuranee was effected, died
a few hours after the medical examina
tion was made. The doctor advised
the dying man's attendants to give
him milk and brandy in order to keep
life together until the application codkl
reach the company and a policy be is
sued. The policy was received on the
day after Gehris' death.
Speculative Insurance Notes.

that the speculative insurance men
took an old eolcred man named Haeh

trying 10 sign the papers. Some men
standing very nigh in Dauphin county

will be investigated.

LONDON, May 23.—The Russian rev

manifesto by a second utterance,
dwelling on the wretchedness of the
peasants, the deportations tc Siberia,
the gagging of.free speech and public
journals and declaring that false coun
selors are in possession of the Czar's
ear. The document concludes as fol

your people around you and listen to
their wishes in an unprejudiced spirit,
and then neither your Majesty nor the
State will have any reason to appre
