*to render fruitless all efforts to save

—The Central Mfg, Co. of Le wis

this year. They have been in business

more machines than ever before. The
Buckeye mower, so well known in this
county, is still kept at the head of the
list. The Bates Harvester introduced
iu ISBO at once took the lead, the sale
in our county being 2 in 'BO, 0 in 'Bl and
40 last year. Their agents in this
county, Jno. DeLong &S. Strohecker,
sAd last year 49 machines. Farmers
should remember that these machines
are not yankee grimcracks, but made
on the line of our railroad. The shops
can be reached twice a day, making it
very convenient for repairs. Their
machines are all put out on their mer
its, warranted durable, well made, of
good material and run light, and as
the record proves will outlast any oth
er machine in the market. Machines
built by this company 22 years ago are
still running iu this county. 3t

SQr Aw CORN.— On his leeent visit
to the Seneca Corn planter Reservations
the Indians gave Rev. lb Crittenden a
few ears of what is called "Squaw
Corn." It is said to be a little earlier
than the common sweet corn and an
excellent variety for table use, as well
as a forage plant, having an abundant
growth of leaves.
Mr. Critttenden says, "Any mem
ber of any Sunday School in Centre
county can have enough seed for three
! or four hills by sending two three cent
stamps to pay package and postage, or
ten cents for mission use, to M iss
Jennie Crittenden, Belli foute, Pa. We
i hope at least some of our Millheim
j Sunday School toys and girls will inati
, Ifest enough missionary spirit to iu

THE ROYCK REAPER —Mr. Leui.
Cam I*l*ll, who hu3 recently become a
resident of Sunburv, is general agent
for the sole of the Royce Reaper, one
of the popular machines of the day,
manufuctuied i y L. Sweet & Co., at
Wellsville, N. Y. As an indication
of the increasing popularity of these
machiuya we will state tnat Mr. Camp
bell took the agency for them in this
neighborhood in in which year he
sold 21 of them; in ISSOhis salesatnoun
ted to 52 and in 'cl the number he hand
led ran np to I*2B,an increase of over one
hundred per cent, each year. lie has
orders already for over 10J this season,
and will no doubt double that number
before harvest. We doubt whether any
other machine can show an rqtial in
crease in popularity in the same
length of time. This may lie attributed
to the excellent qualities of the Royce j
Reaper, it being of the lightest draught
and is the easiest handled machine in
the market, and 3 to durability it is
unexcelled. He is also selling the best
mowers in the market, together with
rakes and a general variety of agricul
tural implements. dt
BOLD BURGLARY.— On last Friday
night a bold burglary was attempted
upon Mr. David Krape, the President
of the Millheim Banking Comparo.
Mr. Krape resides about three miles
east of Aaror.sburg, some distance
north of the pike, it was 1 "mg after
midnight that the burglars visited the
house. They fi'st went up stairs and
securely fastened the door of Mr.
Krape's room, making him a prisoner,
and then commenced operations on the
safe below. They had already drilled
and charged it with powder, ready to
explode, when for s une cause they be
came frightened and made a hasty re
treat. This was the condition of
things as Mr. Krape found it in the
morning when he was released from
his room by a neighbor. No clue has
yet developed as to who the burglars

—Last week we had the pleasure of

The grand opening of the Spring

press was well represented by Mr. Tu

and Sabbath Schools will participate in

these annual occasions bring back to
our memories the days that tried men's
souls, when side by side we stood on
the bloody field of battle with those

beneath tho sod of the valley, while
the chirping of the beat if ul birds unite
with the soft and perfumed zephyrs of
spring, to sing a requiem over their
Supremo Court Decision.
THE STREAM MUST FLOW IS THE OLD
In Clinton county rtows a stream a
long Nittany Valley known as Fishing
creek. Years ago tlie stream lost it
self in sinks on the farm which nyw l>e
longs to Jacob lleltman. Before Ilelt
man bought the farm an owner of old
en times caused a channel to be made
around the sinks, so that the stream
might flow on and be of some use to
the yalley. It seems that in 1878 Mr.
lleltman conceived an idea that by di
verting the course of tho stream he
could make it of greater profit to nulls
in an opposite direction. The water
was turned around the sinks and, as a
consequence, the old artificial channel
became dry, as did also the spring be
longing to James If. Porter. On sev
eral occasions Mr. Porter broke the
dani3 so that the water might continue
to flow in its old channel. Finally he
entered suit against lleltman, asking
that he be restrained from obstructing
or damming tlieold channel. The low
er Court decided in his favor, but,
lleltman appealed to the Supreme
Court, who affirmed the judgement of
the lower court.
GUITEAU'S VAIN APPEAL.
The Court in Banc Sustains tho
Juigomont of tho* Court bolow.
By Tekvniph t the l'.itriot.
WASHINGTON, May L 2. —Tie deci
sion of the court in banc affirming the
decision of the'eourt below in the Gui
teau case attracted little attention.
The counsel for the government and
Guiteau were in attendance, and the
usual crowd of curious spectators. Mr.
Iteed, Guiteau's counsel, is expected to
either apply for a writ de lunatico
inquirendo, or to a justice of tiie Uni
ted States supremo court, for a writ
of habeas corpus.
Tho NOW 3 Conveyed to Guiteau.
Mr. Iteed, Guiteau's co unsel, imme
diately after tho decision was announc
ed, went to the jail to see his client.
What Mr. Iteed proposes to do ho does
not yet say. The death watch will he
immediately set, and Guiteau will he
kept in close confinement till June 30
unless Reed succeeds in securing some
restraining order from the United
States Supreme Court, or the President
shall grant a respite.
Tho Assassin Indifferent.
Guiteau received the decision with
indifference. lie has asked his coun
sel what is to he done next. _ Mr . Reed
will apply to a justice of tho United
States Supreme Court for a writ of ha
beas corpus. This, of course, cannot
he granted, as the court has adjourned
until October, hut if the justice should
endorse 011 the application, after hear
ing, that lie thought good cause for
granting the writ was shown, Air.
Reed would apply to President Arthur
for a respite until the court could hear
the argument 011 the writ in October.
Meanwhile the president will be delug
ed with petitions for a pardon.
GUITEAU HEARD FROM.
He Wants the Officials Who Hang
Him to Understane That They Will
WASHINGTON, May 10.— Guiteau
has addressed the following letter to
the Star for publication: 4 T tell tho
American people and its officials, from
the Executive down to the court in
banc, who are reviewing my case, that
I tell the truth, 'and lie not,' when I
say lam God's man in the matter of
President Garfield's removal, and that
if a hair of my head is harmed the Al
mighty will make the officials that do
it suffer for it. If I was outside I
would lecture, under the auspices of
some bureau, on religious subjects.
One of my subjects would be "Paul
the Apostle," and kindred topics. If
my time has come to leave this world
lam willing, hut I want the officials
i that murder me on the gallows to un
; dergtand the issue. If they murder
mo they will incur the wrath of the Al
mighty (rod, and it will he a long time
before lie lets rip on them and this na
tion. The devils that crucified the dis>
pised tiallilean thought that they were
doing (tod's service, but that did not
release them from liability. They and
their nation incurred the wrath of the
Almighty by that act, and he got even
with them at the destruction of Jeru
salem, and he will get even with this
nation and the olf-eials if 1 am murder
ed on the gallows. 1 want an uncon
ditional pardon or nothing, and 1 want
the Executive to so understand it. 1
have set forth my views fully on this in
my book, "The Truth and the Hem ov
al." If the honorable jurists represent
ing the Washington court in banc de
cide this case according to the law
there is only ono decision they can
make, and that is that they have no
jurisdiction, if they decide contrary
to the law the matter will rest with
President Arthur, and they will have
incurred the wrath of Almighty God."
The Capitol of the State of New
York was expected to cost four mil
lion dollars. Thus far it has cost
thirteen million, and when finished will
probably have reached twenty million.
And, most of all, when fiuished, at five
times tho proposed original cost, it is a
debatable question whether or not the
stone ceiling in tho legislative hall will
stand, or suddenly fall and catch the
whole legislative body while somo noisy
member may be airing bis eloquence.
