Musical Convention in Millheim
The musical convention which was
held in the M.E. Church of this place
under the direction of Prof. Kuizen
knabe of llanisburg, Pa., produced a
.feeling of entire satisfaction with the
members as well as the audience. The
occasion proved a success in regard to
attendance and perforina el. On
Tuesday evening the convention was
i opened with prayer by U j v. John Tom
iinson, which was followed by a (i root
ing Glee and an address of welcome by
11. O. Deininger, Esq. Prof. J. 11.
Kurzenknabe responded to that and
the election of oflloers for the week was
preceded with. The following gentle
men were elected by acclamation: Prof.
IJ. If. Korzankn ib), President, Mr. S.
! K. Sankey, Vice President, and K. A.
Bu miller, Seciatary.
The sessions through out the week
were conducted according to the pro
gramme and in a businesslike manner.
Interesting discussions on musical top
ics wore had, in which several of our
citizens took a lively part. Another
tine feature of the exercises was the
elegant and delightful music executed
by the orchestra under the leadership
of Master Geo. J. Kurzenknabe. The
Violin and Violin cello S dos perferm
ed by M isteri Ge>. # J. aid JO'J.I £.
Ku zeuknabe were of a superior grade
and elicited admiratio i a ivl praise. The
singing was of the best kiud and prov
ed, that where art and science work
combined in music, as th*y on* it to do
the productions will be beyond criti
i cis n. Mrs. S. Kurzmkn.ibs also par
ticipated iu the exercises and agreea
bly surprised the hearers by IRT rich
and melodious contralto voice. A few
select s.los sung by that lady kept the
audience spellbound. Miss Kate L.
Shriner of Mitflinburg assisted as or
ganist of the convention and we can
well say for her, that she di I her duty
in a faithful and laudable way. Those
sweet little singers, Ida and Mollie
Miller, of Mitflinburg, are a credit to
their teacher, Miss Shriner.
The average attendance through the
week was 160 out of a class of 10J
members. The community owes a debt
of gratitude to Prof. J. 11. Kurzen
knabe for his noble and successful ef
forts in awakening the dormant talents
and powers of vocal music and reviving
the interest and love for the same.
On Saturday evening the convention
ended with a grand concert. The
cliuich was packed with a crowd of
about 40J people ■ which however ob
served the best order during the whole
evening. Many cocld not gain admit
tance for want of room. The pro
gramme consisted of the most select
and entertaining pr >iucViou; of music
both instrumental and vocal, and was
crowned with an extract of the cele
brated Coutata of "Krther, the beauti
ful Queen." Everybody agreed on the
opinion th.*t it was the best entertain

J. F. EVERETT & Co.,—the proprie
tors of the Mammoth Bee Hive Store,
at Lock Haven, again come before the
public in a new ndvertisment. Be sure
to read it, for it is to your interest as
well as theirs. Their stock of good# is
so Urge, their assntmeut so full, and
they treat their customers so fairly,
that people always leave their store de
lighted. Their immense business,
which constantly increases, enables
them to sell so very low. If von go to
Lock flavvn don't fall to call at the
popular Bee Hive.
The other week we got a good joke
on Lewin, the genial and popular cloth
ier of the Philadelphia Branch, at
Bellefonte. Ilf thought ho could suit
us In fi' suit of clothing—but he could
not. Among all the hundreds of suits,
of every possible zra.le and price, there
was not a single suit to suit us. The
fault however was not in the suits so
much as with ours 1 ! ves—or rather our
Creator, who made us a trifle too big
in circumference for Lewins suits.
But. Lew in did not consent to l>e
ba 111*1 in that way, and so lie tied two
tape measures together, took our size
and ordered a suit to be made expressly
for us in Philadelphia. Hefassaied es
—and his word is as good as old wheat
—that the coming suit will suit us ex
actly. It is to h of fine blue cloth, of
fashionable cut and make, simply a
grand affiar throughout. When it
comes(?) we will wear it, for we sadly
noed it, and feel as happy as a May—
shaw, we forget the animal's name.
Vry naturally we will a trifle in
dependent for a while and won't care
to have just anybody speak to us—but
we will never go back on those who
have befriended us in adversity. No

A Fight With Muderers.
WATSONVILLE, Cal., January 10.—
The residents of this place are greatlv
excited to-day oVer the news'of an en
counter that took place in the moun
tains last eveniug between a posse of
police and two muiderers named Igna
cioTijada and John Leal. The police pur
sued them into a thickly-wooded por
tion of the mountains and discovered
them secreted in a hollow tree. As the
police approaclied the murderers open
ed firo on them with revolvers. The
police returned the fire until both men
dropped their arms. They then rush
ed in on the pair and found that Leal
was mortally wounded and Tijada shot
through the body and suffering greatly.
As the police passed through the town
toward the jail with their prisoners
they were followed by a mob, who
threatened to lynch the prisoners.

Governor Curtin nnd Speaker Krlfor
The representative of this congres
sional district, our fellow townsman,
Governor CURTIS, was most discour
teously treated by Speaker KKIFKK in
the making up of his committees, and
the Elk Dtnwcrat indignantly says
that lie was almost entirely ignored by
the speaker, wlio placed him upon but
one committee, and that a compara
tively insignificant one. Appreciating
the studied slight thus put upon one of
Pennsylvania's most illustrious son's
ex-K>i>eaker KAXDALL relinquished his
place unonone of the committees in
favor of tho Governor. The Philadel

that Speaker KRIFKR, or those who
command him, supposed that they *ere

regarding the courtesy that has ever
been observed by speakers in assigning
him Ilia positions on committees The
rule has been that ex-Governors of any
party are entitled to a place on foreign
relations, or some equally prominent
committee ; but CUKTIK, who has been
twice elected governor of the second
state of the Union and filled a first-class
mission for four years, fa denied any
recognition in the organisation of the
committees of the house. Had Speak
er KKIFKK respected himself, hft would
have placed CUKTIN on fprx<tgn rela

degraded the speaker and his higli
office, and not ex-Governor CUUTI*.
