or N1TTaNY VALLEY.—There are re-
reports of much destitution and conse-
quent suffering in that part of Nittany
valley ravaged by the flood. From re-
ports received there appears to be
very much destitution, and conse-
quently much suffering, prevailing
there yet. Appeals have been sent
out through the State for aid and com-
mittees have been appointed to wait on
the State Flood Relief Gommittee and
present to them the existing condition
of affairs, and, if at all possible, to se-
cure aid from them.
The total estimate now of the damage
in Lamar and Porter townships,Clinton
county, is not tar short of $150,000, and
this loss fell upon a class whose all was
swept away, leaving them without a
thing and in the midst of a people who
were almost as poor as they. Unlike in
the Conemaugh valley, there was no
commissary department organized by
the State for the subsistence of those
made destitute, and now that so much
time has elapsed, without any help be-
ing extended to them,except the meagre
assistance of their neighbors, who were
also in a manner sufferers, a great many
are in very destitute circumstances.
The citizens of that valley feel very
badly because the people everywhere so
munificently helped Johnstown while
they were left to help themselves or
starve. A great many are inclined to
think that relief intended forthem never
reached the right place, but was misap-
propriated and used in Lock Haven or
elsewhere, and they now desire all who
contributed anything for them to make
special request that itis for the relief of
persons in that valley. There have been
relief committees established at Salona,
Cedar Springs and Mackeyville, and
anything forwarded to either place will
be properly applied.
Since the crops have been harvested a
more careful estimate of the amount of
valley places the amount on wheat and
hay at about one-fifth the entire yield.
On oats and corn it is estimated that the
damage will be about one-fourth of the
entire crop. Otherwise all grain crops
would have been unusually large.
ReGions.—Dr. Joseph F. Edwards,
member of the State Board of Health,
who has been visiting the flooded dis-
tricts of the State, has the following to
say cf the condition of Nittany Valley :
“We drove to-day from Lock Haven
for forty miles through the Nittany
Valley visiting the villages of Mill Hall,
Salona, Flat Rock, where there is prac-
tically nothing left, Mackeyville, Clin-
tondale and Yankeetown. With the
exception of Mackeyville, these villages
sare in fairly good sanitary condition, for
with characteristic energy the people
fell to at once and have thoroughly
cleaned up. But the distress is some-
thing pitiful. Here is a field for prac-
tical philanthrophy. If some good
man, with a few thousands of dollars,
would travel through this valley he
could earn for himself a high place in
Heaven. We were accosted in the woods
near Flat Rock by a poor woman who
had, just before the flood, succeeded in
paying for a modest little home. This
home was now lying smashed to pieces
in a gully, and she, with her bright-eyed
little ones, was living in a neighbor’s
smokehouse, while the possession of a
worthless husband only placed an addi-
tional burden on her. At Mackeyville
we met the merchant of the village,
who pointed out to us a “stone founda-
tion’ as the remnant of his store, stock
and property. He was completely
wrecked ; he had suffered a loss of $3,000.
These two instances are but illustrations
of what is found everywhere. In this
same town, out of a population of only
100, two persons were drowned, while in
Flat Rock there were six persons drown:
ed,all women and children. In the lit-
tle town of Salona five persons were
drowned, while at Washington Furnace
there were two deaths by drowning.
Most of these villages were damaged by
rain water that eame down the moun-
tains in raging torrents, carring every-
thing before it. If one travels along
Pine Creek, Beech Creek, Larry’s Creek
and the numerous streamsin the vicinity
of Jersey Shore and Lock Haven, he
wonders what is to become of the farm-
ers, and 1t really make one’s heart ache
to see the devastat'on that has been
wrought to once prosperous farms. In
very many instances(fo start with) the
barn has been carried away and with it
all the remnants of last year’s crops;
this year’s crops have been destroyed by
the flood and these poor people must
wait until another yearrolls by before
they can derive anything from their
lands, which, in reality, is a burden to
them, for if they must pay taxes (and
the Commissioners have not decided
that they must not) it goes beyond my
ccmprehension to understand where
they will get the money to pay them

the State.
——The remains of a boy about 16
years old were found by some workmen
employed in getting out logs near Mun-
cy, some days ago. It is presumed that
he was one of the flood victims. The
body was much decomposed and could
not be identified.

furnish music for the occasion. Several
eminent speakers are expected to be
present to deliver addresses.
——The publishers and editors of the
Williamsport Grit have struck quite a
streak of trouble. Week before last
they were arrested and had a hearing for
sending obscene literature through the
mails, and last week they were bound
over to answer for criminal libel. A
person of the name of George Keifer is
the individual who is giving them all
this trouble.
——A singular effect of the Johns-
town flood is shown in the fact that the
Pennsylvania railroad has never been
crowded with general passenger business
more than since the Johnstown flood,
and a share of the loss to the company
is gained through thousands of travelers
who go out of the way to see Johnstown.
A good deal of passenger business that
naturally belongs to other roads goes
over the Pennsylvania railroad to sce
the ruined city.
——There is a rumor that the late as-
sessor of Ferguson township is to be pros-

sessment. But a correspondent from
that township says that the people of
the township are anxiously awaiting
such a chance to test by action of law
whether the county Commissioners have
the right to increase the assessment over
and above the valuation returned by the
assessor, they having made an increase
of 8 per cent. It would seem that the
Board is badly rattled on the tax ques-
Some nights ago’ Wm. Barger,
who resides at Morrisdale Mines, was

burg. He is an old soldier and had just
received his pension. Getting under the
influence of liquor, about eleven o’clock
an individual, claiming to be an officer,
approached him on the street and desir-
ed to takehim to a place of safety. He
readily yielded, and was led to the plat-
form near the Beech Creek station.
Here the pretending officer told him he
could rest, and that he would stay
with him. They both laid down to
“sleep,” and it was not long until Barger
was soundly slumbering. The individual
who was falsely representing himself to
be an officer, then took occasion to go
through Barger’s pockets, relieving him
of his money. He awoke from his stupor
about two o'clock and seeing his ‘‘com-
panion’’ gone and his money likewise,
he began yelling with all his might.
His noise attracted the attention of Of-
ficer Gorton, who was on night duty,
and who experienced considerable diffi-
culty in locating the whereabouts of

best thing by taking their second choice.
Laip Our.—The Clearfield Journal in
giving some incidents of the days when
Clearfield county was formed, says:
Away back in 1805 Roland Curtin,
John Fleming and James Smith, joint
commissioners for Centre and Clearfield
counties,came across the mountain from
Bellefonte to look up a site for a county
seat. They examined the land of a
colored man named Samuel Boyd, lying
between the river and the mouth of
Clearfield creek, and which is now the
farm of John F. Weaver; the land of
Abram Witmer, two miles further up
the river; the land of Martin Hoover,
three miles above Witmer's property,
and which is now the farm of Leander
Denning; and the land of Paul Clover,
near where Curwensville is now located.
They finally settled upon Martin
Hoover's farm as being the most desir-
able place to erect the county buildings,
and accordingly went there to enter in-
to negotiations with Mr. Hoover. They,
however, found the sturdy pioneer im-
movable. He utterly refused to listen
to their proposition, saying that his
farm was too good to be spoiled by the erec-
tion of county buildings upon it! So the
nonplussed Commissioners did the next
They came back down the river and
easily struck a bargain with the enter-
prising “Lancaster Dutchman,” Abram
‘Witmer, upon whose land was located
the old Indian village Chicklacamoose.
Here the town of Clearfield was laid
out sixteen blocks square, in the bend of
the West Branch of the Susquehanna,
including the site of the old Indian vil-
lage. With characteristic enterprise’
‘Witmer donated to the county, as near
as practicuble in the centre of this plot,
ground for the Court House and jail;
also for the use of the town ground for a
market house and for anacademy. First
street, running in a straight line, touch-
ed the river at the northern and south-
ern limits of the town plot, leaving an
irregular strip of ground bordering on
the river. Witmer, not satisfied with
what he had already done for the town,
cut off two triangular pieces of ground,
one at each end of this irregular strip,
and donated them for the use of the peo-
ple as public parks.
A CreDPITABLE Acr.—For a number
of years Hon S.R.Peale of Lock Haven,
has been making the Bush House his
stopping place, when in town. Last
winter he and Mr. Teller spent several
weeks together on a trip to the Burmu-
da Islands. His knowledge of the man-
nerin which the Bush House was kept
and his personal feeling for Mr. Teller,
induced him, when hearing of the trou-
ble the Bush House was in, on Satur-
day last, to leave his family at Egles-
mere, where they are summering, come
to Lock Haven, and drove to Bellefonte
on Sunday evening, to render any assis-
tance in court at the trial on Monday.
From his knowledge of the proprietor of
the House and his observation as to the
manner in which it ‘was conducted
while a guest, he concluded that the
prosecution must be a matter of spite
work, and as such should be rebuked in
the plainest and most positive manner.
His visit and the tender of his service in
the case were purely voluntary and
gratuitous, and exhibited in a striking
degree his kindness of heart and devo-
tion to a friend. His speech to the
court, and the points of law raised by
him, seemed to meet with the approval
of the Judge and audience alike, and
his action in the matter throughout
won for him the warmest congratula-
tions of our people generally. When-
ever Senator Peale can find time, or
has occasion to run up to Bellefonte, he
will find a warm welcome from the bet-
ter citizens of the town.

The game of ball between the

Works ground on last Friday afternoon
was full of interest and excitement.
Heretofore it has been customary for the
industrial crowd to wipe up the ground
with their Blackstonian antagonists, but
this time the Bar men went out for the
express purpose of winning one game, |
which they would have done had it not
been for the “rattling” they got in the
last inning. :
Considering everything, the game was
well played and the spectators were kept
in a constant uproar by the ridiculous
capers of Ellis Orvis, sheriff Cooke, Jim |
Hamill and the other would be winners. |
The work of the batteries was very |
good with the exception of the last half
of the ninth inning, when the manu-
facturers ,were at the bat, Hamill lost
control of the sphere and consequently |
was pounded all over the field.
Messrs Walter Graham and Len Mun-
son distinguished themselves by making
two double plays, while sheriff Cooke |
and Bob McKnight made home runs
because the ball was lost.
The following is the make up of the
teams and the score by innings: Muanu-

During the early part of the contest,
while the lawyers thought they had a
winning lead, they presented Ed. Kit-
tell, the captain of the manufacturers,
with a beautiful Bailey, Banks and
Booby gold (?) watch and chain, all*
handsomely mounted on the finest of
glazed card board. Lawyer D. S. Kel-
lar made the presentation speech and
the happy recipient responded in a few
well chosen words. When the game
turned the watch was given back to the
defeated ones and they returned in a
despondert manner to revive their
crushed spirits at the Bar.
