--A "dispatch to the Philadelphia

this full. All other grain is thriving.

and purer character than many other
games that are being played around
—lt is gratifying to observe, says
Menamiu's Printer's Circular , Phila
delphia, that the socialists and all the
many expounders of new-fangled doc
trins of labor and capital, make few or
110 converts among the printers. They
are too intelligent to be fooled by the
crazy theories which are floating around
in every direction.
—Democratic candidates for county
oflices should not forget that it will pay
them to announce their candidacy in
the JOURNAL. The truth of the mat
ter is they can hardly expect to reach
all the democratic voters in this demo
cratic stronghold unless it bo through
the columns of the local paper. A
word to the wise is sufficient.

ers may get over the .ground safely, is

Main street, and judging by his pulls
yesterday forenoon lie had been doing u
heap of muscular work. Go in on it,
Doe, yon are working for a good cause.
—The associate editor of the Dentin
County VYitn.s is awfully jealous of the
book and ladder boys here. The reason
is that Smith is just dying to belong to
a book and ladder company ami can't
find anything of the kind in Centre
llall.—Dai/// AYirs.
We invite editor Smith to come to
Millheim. He cnnhuU'Cie book .ilid
ladder truck of this place all to himself,

quite sure nobody wilt object.

likely be with us oil and on during the
next few months.

—Last week's Clinton Democrat is
authority for the follow ing snake story:
Sunday, while the employes of the
Beech Creek construction train were
clearing up a wreck near Peale,Bome of
them strayed a short way into the
woods when they suddenly found them
selves near a large tl it rock on which to
their surprise they discovered lying in
the sun ten large rattle snakes. They
succeeded in killing nine of the snakes,
and brought the rattles home for tro
—John have you seen that woman
lately ?
John, in astonishment: What woman ?
That woman Picking Grapes for
Speer's Wine. Just see her in another
column and read about it,the wines
are found by chemists to be absolutely
pure and equal to the best in the
World. The Board of Health in Laige
Cities and leading Hospitals have a
dopted their use where wines are need
—Two young strangers peddling rags
and tin passed through town last
Thursday with a one horse conveyance
on their way lo Coburn, when they
were overtaken by one of the thunder
gusts which were a frequent occur
rence on that day, filling the air with
sharp electricity and heavy claps of
thunder. One of these electric charges
frightened their horse, which became
uncontrollable and upset their wagon
breaking the shafts and otherwise dam
aging the vehicle. Nobody was hurt,
but they had to lay over for repairs uu
til the next day.
—Large and bushy shade trees in
front of private residences and along
the streets are ornamental as well as
useful. But when they are allowed to
grow iu anyshape and the lower branch
es are but seven or eight feet above the
pavements they become a nuisance and
an inconvenient impediment to pedes
trians. A tall gentleman wearing a
silk hat or persons carrying an umbrel
la on a rainy day will haye to dodge or
else run the risk of spoiling their hat or
umbrella. We have a number of sucli
trees in this town and we suggest that
the owners trim them and thus confer a
favor upon the public.
arl of cultivating the Oporto vinos and
fermenttug the Oporto Grape into wine
in this country, and of preserving the
Grape Juice Iresh without fermentation
has been brought to a greater degree of
I>erfection by Mr. Alfred Speer, of
Passaic, N. J., than by any other per
son; in fact, he was the pioneer in in
troducing and 'advertising Native
Wines, lie has purchased hundreds of
tons of crapes, besides his own vintage.
Mr. Speer's success has arisen from the
strict purity and valuable properties of
his wines for invalids and feeble per
sons,and his reputation extends around

SOMETHING NEW.- Outsiders fre
quently wonder where the railroads ob
tain proper return for some of the in
genious but costly methods adopted in
advertising thiir lines. One of the lat

hound G4 page book entitled, "What
to Do,"containing a descriptionand the
correct rules of a large number of gam

lias been issued by the Passenger De

•— l The (Hinton Dtiuocrnt suggests lo
the yolers of that county to re-elect one
of the present democratic Incumbents
of the commissi*.iter's office, pointing
out the inconvenience which may arise
from electing three entirely new men.
The suggest ion is aw ise one and what
is more, we think, would answer ts

reason that tlit* ull'aiis of our Imard of
commissioners, which huvo been well
regulated and successfully handled
during the last six years, will suffer

Furev's advise to retain one of the old

—We want mo'tey and we want it

promising statement, but it is neverthe
less true, and the truth might as well
he admitted. And to Im still more frank,
we want those of our subscribers who

Thanks UETUUNF.i.--My humble
and sincere thanks are hereby extended
to those kind hearted people of Mill
heim, who visited the U. H. parsonage
onTuesday evening and left a lot of gro
ceries and eatables. Those who re
member God's embassadors in such a
kind and substantial way are people
who appreciate the Gospel and show
clearly that they are under its hallowed
intlueuce. Not once only, but several
times within the past few months have
the pastor and his family lieen remem
bered in this manner by those kind jieo
ple, and I wish to say to each of them,
accept our warmest thanks and may
your kindness to God's servants be re
membered before the throne on high
and cause the blessing of kind heaven to
follow you forever. C. Woktmax.
—What more certain sign of real
prosjKTity than numberless railroads ?
says the Daily Netcs. That is just
what Bollefotite is now getting tne ben
efit of, and soon can claim the site of
the State Capitol, not only liecause of
its central location, but also because it
is the radiating point for the groat
highways of travel. Another is added
to the list, the Lock Haven Democrat
being informed that the Wilkesbarre
and Western railroad company are now
surveying a line for a railroad from
Watsoniown through Sugar and N'it
tany valleys to Bellefonte, with a
branch from Washington Furnace to
Mill Hall to connect with the Beech
Creek road at that place, with a view of
carrying coal from the Beech Creek
coal basin to the eastern market. It is
said this will ln> the shortest line from
the Beech Creek and Snow Shoe coal
fields to New York.
—From last week's Centre County
Times :
Sunday afternoon C. F. Smith, of
Centre Hill, and Miss Sadie Mitchell
started on horseback en route for How
ard, the home of t lie latter. On reach
ing the Fort hill, Mr. Smith's horse
stumbled and fell upon the rider, break
ing one of the bones in liis foot. The
lady's horse tTightened at the scram
bling of the falling animal, leaped over
a stone pile and threw the rider from
his back. Miss Mitchel, who is a good
horse-woman, on seeing the danger a
liead losened her foot from the stirrup,
but unfortunately her riding skirt
caught on the saddle pommel by which
she was suspended while the steed
made several leaps in the air. The
skirt gave way finally and the rider fell
to the ground, receiving no other in
juries than a bruised limb, caused by a
kick from the iiorse.
Ttikee Effects.— The thousands
of remarkable cures which have been
accomplished by Hood's Sarsaparilla
are due simply to three effects which
this great medicine has upon those who
take it :
First. It puiifies the blood.
Second, It strengthens the system.
Third. It gives healthy action to
the digestive organs.
With these three ellect3 no disease
can long retain its hold. It is forced
to leaye the system, giving place to
health and strength, through the po
tent influence of Ilood's Sarsaparilla.

—The annual statement of the re
ceipts and expenditures of the Millheim
Borough school district for the year
ending June 6th is posted up and shows
a balance of $56.59 in excess ot liabili
ties. The receipts during the year a
mounted to $1379.54 while the expenses

the duplicate of is,s6 and cash on hand

of expense for new furniture.

rangements with Mr. F. A. Foreman,
of Centre Ilall, to teach a term of se
lect school in this place, after harvest

encouragement and support as it is just
exactly what this town needed for some
time. Should the work warrant it Mr.
Forman is authorized to engage an as
sistant teacher.

k<n-p it in repair. Occasionally an old man
is put on a day or two to hreak up the stone
that are piled in the middle of the ro;ul and
then left lay until they are tramped in the
mud. We venture to say that our August
court will have something to say on the
road question, if the proper repairs are not
made liefore that time, as pisiple who use
