abilities in the furniture line, but that
chair at once convinced us that he is as
good a chairmaker as he is a buggy and
evening about 7 o'clock the western
of Main street was illuminated by
the fierce flames issuing from the wood
house of C. F. Deininger's property.
The fire originated in a box filled with
pitch pine shavings and gained strong
headway before it was discovered by
any of the two families residing on the
premises. The cry of fire ran along the
streets and dozens of men, armed with
buckets and tubs were on the ground
in five miuutes from the time the alarm
was given, By that time the small
building, connecting the two dwelling
houses, was a complete victim of the
flames and for a while it looked as if
the two large houses were to follow
suit. The bucket brigade went to work
with a vengeance and by faithful and
daring efforts succeeded in conquering
the raging fire fiend. The house on the
eastern side, occupied by Mr. Kurzen
knabe was considerably damaged by the
flames and had it not been for the snow
011 the roof and the general dampness
of the weather, it could hardly have
been saved. The furniture belonging
to Mr. A. O. Deininger, which was
stored away in one of the departments
of the small building was all destroyed,
the intense heat making it impossible
to enter the room. It was indeed a
wonder that the conflagration was
checked in so short a time, considering
the meagre facilities the town affords
for work of this kind. Of course Prov
idence, as in many cases before, was
gracious. Nad it been dry and windy,
the chances for saving the town would
have been slim. The excitement a
mong the neighbors was intense and
many were looking for a clean sweep of
Main street. The damages at Rev. C.
F. Deininger's propeity are estimated
at S3OO. The buildings are insured in
the Lebanon company.
the name of my father I wish to take
this opportunity of returning our ear
nest and heartfelt thanks to all those,
who so nobly and kindly assisted in ex

property. God grant that they may

—We publish part of the Council
proceedings of Monday's special meet

that it is absolutely necessary to do
something in the line of a fire apparat
us. The council has taken steps to
procure hooks, ladders aud buckets, to
be paid for out of the borough funds.
Every property holder and resident of
towu will at once heartily endorse and
support this timely action of our coun
cil because it is in the interest of every
oae to haye complete and handy ar
rangements to fight fire. With a de
cent outfit and a well organized and
drilled company the chances of saving
properties iu case of fire are certainly
better than with the present facilities
and we hope that the good work will be
pushed without much delay.

the Pike school, in Penn township, on
Thursday evening, January 15th, con
sisting of declamations, dialogues,med
leys, select-reading, &c., n fleeted great
credit upon the participants, who
acquitted themselves spler.didly, calling
forth rounds of applause from the large
crowd of spectators. When the pro
gramme was exhausted,sides were select*
ed for the "Spelling Bee." About fifty
pet sons, among them many from a dis
tance took part in the battle of words.
So evenly were the sides matched,that,
when the order was given to "spoil
down," tlicy stood a tie. Rising to
their feet, the orthographical warfare
grew fiercer, cutting down and thin
ning out the ranks, until but two spell
ers remained In opposition. Mr. Geo.
Springer, of Milliieim, on one side, and
Mr. John Philips, aon of B. F. Philips,
Esq., on the other. The floor was
warmly contest!d for some time, but
finally the Goliuth of Millhein* was pros
trated upon the plain of orthography
by the young David of the Pike school.
Good order prevailed throughout and
the affair was a success. Much praise is
due the teacher, Mr. W. T. Auman,for
his untiring interest and the manner
in which lie conducted the exercises.
Mr. Auman is a model young m r n awd
a painstaking teacher, ever striving to
make himself woithy c t his responsible
calling. Nothing in the line of duty
escapes his vigilance. By dint of his
Personal energy he has made of himself
what he is ; and wo doubt not, but

A Strictly Cash Store
Where goods are bought and sold
Believing that the j>coplc of Centre county arc fully awake to their
best interests and that thev have the intelligence to comprehend and the
courage to recognize the means best calculated to bring about the most
desirable results, wo would most confidently and earnestly submit the
following for your careful consideration :
That king credit has slain its victims by the thousands upon its ex
tended battle fields is a fact beyond successful contradiction, and we
would only ask you to call (o your recollections your own observations
in proof of this fact, and, the pitiful appeals of those still under th e
crushing heel of the tyrant fall upon our ears with unmistable certainty and
we would say, come, let us rush to their rescue by wielding the sword, of
justice and striking the monster down with a decisive blow and keeping him
there by eternal vigilance. This can be done only by a system which pays
as well as demands CASH on delivery. #
This system we will adopt and put into operation on the twenty-sixth
day of December 1884, after which we will buy and sell positively for cash
and produce only and will name such figures on goods as will fully convince
every intelligent person that it is to their interest to buy their goods where
KING CREDIT finds no quarter, but where the
is radically and permanently established and strictly adhered to. Kindly in
viting and soliciting the co-operation of every one in giving this system a
thorough trial, we are
