For a town of its size Bellefonte contains an unusually large Catholic population, the church having been in vigorous existence here since early inthe present century, and it may not be too much to say that nu- merically it is as strong as the strongest in our borough. To this class of church people the ap- proaching consecration of their new place of worship, constructed on so much grander scale than their old one which had served them so long, appeared as an event of great spiritual importance, and it was on account of such feeling that a large crowd began to assemble long before the time for the ceremonies to begin. There were many in the throng who were not Catholics attracted by curiogity and the interest they took in so important a matter as a church dedication, irrespective of denomination- al feeling. At 10 o'clock a. m., the doors were opened and the expectant crowd quietly filed into the edifice. Tickets of admis- sion had been sold at the price of $1, and from the size of the assemblage it was evident that more than a thousand had been sold. Only the middle rows of pews were at first occupied, the side pews remaining vacant for a reason that was apparent during the course of the cere- monies. It was not long before the intonations of the priestly procession was heard at the entrance, and, the wide doors being thrown open, with slow and stately tread they marched up the main aisle toward the altar. The part of the ritual suited to this stage of the services was in Latin aud pronounced with that in- toning sound peculiar to the Catholic service, which adds so much to its im- pressiveness. The procession consisted of Rev. W. J. Burke, of Bonneauville, Master of Ceremonies; Rev. J.J. Gorm- ley, of Renovo, Subdeacon; Rev. J. Farren, of Tyrone, Celebrant; Rev. Nevin Fisher, of Philadelphia, who de- livered the sermon; Rev. Father J. Cohl, ot Snow Shoe ; Very Rev. Joseph A. Boll, of Gettysburg, Deacon; Very tev. BE. Garvey, of Williamsport, and Very Rev. M. G. Powers, of Lock Haven, Deacons of Honor; Very Rev. Joseph Koch, of Shamokin, Vicar Gen- eral, and Right Reverend Thomas Mc- Govern, Bishop of the Diocese. Rev. Father McArdle, recior of the church, took no part in the ceremonies. After this imposing array of ecclesi- astics, clad in the habiliments of their priestly offices, reached the altar they knelt with their backs to the congrega- tion and continued their intonations for some minutes. The usual ceremonies were gone through with in the most im- pressive manner, It is useless for one unacquainted with their order or mean- ing to attempt to describe them, but we have no doubt that they were replete with significance to the true Catholic. During the course of the services the venerable Bishop, attended by the pro- cession of priest, and bearing the crosier as thesymbol of his gpiscopal office, tra- versed the side aisles and consecrated the walls of the church by the applica- tion of holy water. After that was done the side rows of seats were quickly filled by those who had remained stand- ing, making the large auditorium a mass of seated worshipers and spectators. The sermon was preached by Rev. Nevin Fisher, Professor in Overbrook Seminary near Philadelphia. His dis- course was in support of the claim of the Catholic church to pre-eminence among Christian churches, founded upon the power given to Peter who was the first Bishop of Rome. Father Fisher, who is yeta young man, is a native of Cen- tre county, being a son of the late Mr. Fisher, of the Reformed churely, and a brother of Dr. Fisher, of Zion, this county. He originally studied for the ministry of the church to which his fath- er belonged. That he is a priest of de- cided ability was indicated by the char- acter of his discourse. The ev. choir, which numbered some thirty or furty, performed an excellent | partin the services. Some of the best -singers of the town who took part were not members of the Catholic church, while that denomination eontributed the best singers of their choir, Miss Alice Nolan being conspicuous in the solo parts. Mr. A. Lukenbach acted as di- rector, and Miss Theresa Hibler, of Milesburg, was organist. The young men's orchestra performed important ser- vice in contributing the instrumental strains. The singers from a distance were Miss Schell and Mr. Young, of 1'y- rone, and Prof. Myers, of Kbensburg. The first Catholic services in Belle- fonte were conducted in 1824 by Father Haydon. who came here from Bedford to do mission Until a church was built they were held in a house on High street afterwards the residence of William Welsh. In 1828, under the pastorate of Rev. Father O'Reily, the chureh which has just been supplanted work. Haven, Jersey Shore, Howard, Hecla and Washington Furnace, Philipsburg and Snow Shoe. Up to 1868 it belong- ed to the Diocese of Philadelphia when it was included in the new Diocese of Harrisburg. The secular priests officiat- ed until 1867, when the Benedictines | were given control, which lasted until | 1864, when the secular priests again took charge of it under the pastoral care of Rev. Thomas McGovern, who is | now the Bishop of the Diocese. Since | its establishment thirty-six priests have | had charge of it, the present incumbent | being Rev. Patrick McArdle, who com- menced his pastorate in November 1880, | and to whom is due the credit of being instrumental in the construction of the fine edifice dedicated on Sunday.

They are fair, honorable and prompt and we are glad to see this new evidence of their prosperity . ~— The Young Ladies’ Missionary So- ciety met last Monday evening at the resi- dence of Mr. Joel Johnson on East Bishop street and wus in every respect a suc- cess. There were several recitations and a diologue by some of the ladies, which were interesting and instructive, and a charade by the gentlemen. Music also enlivened the evening. The Society will meet next Monday evening a week at the home of Miss Mamie Gentzel. ——The following report about chang- ing the location of the grangers’ picnic heretofore held at William’s Grove, may be interesting to our farmer readers, al- though it is denied in some quarters: It is said in the Lebanon Dispatch that Dr. T. A. Corryell, of Harrisburg, secretary of the granger association, in company with other representatives of the sane association, visited Robert H. Coleman, September 25, and effected a twenty years’ lease of grounds at Mount Gretna. It is reported that the picnics of the as- sociation, which have heretofore been held | at Williams’ Grove, will hereafter be held at Mount Gretna. A stock company will be formed with a liberal capital several buildings will le erected the by the new one, was built, it being con- | largest of which will be 50 by 500 feet, | secrated on Sunday, August 14, 1831. flor some time after the Bellefonte par- | picnic on a much 1 | 1 included Lock was established it and it has been decided to conduct the ! grander scale than ever before. UNNECESSARY INQUESTS. — When- ever a person has been found dead, whether the circumstances were suspi- cious or otherwise, it has been the cus- tom fr the coroner, or more usually the nearest justice of the peace, to summon a jury with the greatest possible dis- patch to ‘set on” the body and return a Of course, in most cases the ob- jectis to securesthe fee whizh the law pro- vides for inquests. Judge Furst gives it as his opinion that many of these in- quests are unnecessary, they not being required by law. He instances nine recent cases of this kind in the county which were not called for by legal re- quirement, there being no reasonable | caues for them, and he has directed that the costs incurred should not be paid. He says that where the cause of death is not doubtful and there is no reason for sus- picion that implicates anyone, an in- quest should not be held. The case of A. W. Ralston, who committ-d suicide in Philipsburg on the 28th of Novem- ber, 1888, is numbered among the nine inquests mentioned above. He was a man afflicted with melancholy, was known to have made a prior attempt to take his own life, and the circumstances indicated that there was no legal reason for holding an inquest. The other cases were the Pfoutz children who were in their father's house, a short distance east of Coburn, and on the night of the 1st of June last, during the flood, the house was swept away and they were drowned; Charles Cowper, who was bathing in Hays run on the 18th of August, 1889, about 10 o'clock, and was accidentally drowned ; Patrick McGee, who came to his death from drunkenness by the excessive use of liquor and that no mark of violence could be found on his person; Frank Eckley, who came to his death by at- tempting to get upon a moving train of cars on the Bald Eagle Valley Railroad, near Milesburg, missing his hold, and the railroad employes not being in fault, but a case of gross negligence on his own part; L. E. Heisler, who came to his death accidentally, while helping to load a boiler at the Bellefonte Boiler Works, the rope having slipped, and the deceas- ed having been caught between the boil- er and the skid. It is evident that the intention of an inquest is to determine whether there has been any foul play in causing the death of a person, and as from the char- acter of the deaths above mentioned there could be no ground for a suspi- cion of foul play, an inquiry was unnec- essary and bills of costs in the cases were impositions upon the county. They were very properly rejected. As DELIGHTFUL AS IT WAS SUCCESS- #UL.~-The musical entertainment given in the Court House last Friday evening in the interest of the Presbyterian ladies, is said by all who attended it to have furnished an evening of rare enjoyment. It was favored with a crowded house which it so well deserved. The singers and performers consisted of Misses Speer, Aikens, Bayard, Hamilton and Maus. Dr. Gearhart, of Tyrone, and Messrs. Keplinger, Voris, Weaver, Bassett, Bay- ard and Blanchard. The choruses were very lively and pleasing, and some magnificent solos and duets were ren- dered by Evan Blanchard, Fsq., by Messrs. Keplinger and Voris, by Mrs. Dr. Gearhart, by Miss Aikens, and in- strumental performance by Misses Ham- ilton and Aikens. Prof. Johnson C. Bane, the celebrated guitarist, gave sev- eral of his exquisite performances, in one instance accompanied on the piano by Miss Aikens. The recitations by Mr. Swoope were rendered in a master- ly manner. The concert wound up with “Auld Lang Syne’ sung by some of the old folks of the town, prominent among whom was the venerable Mrs. Armor in the 90 year of her age. The public and the ladies of the Presbyter- ian church are indented to the good man- agement of Mrs. Aikens and Mrs. J. C. Weaver for this really enjoyable enter- tamment. The proceeds were $108. Dears oF Ex-SENator Harr. —The friends of Ex-State Senator John G. Hall were painfully surprised last week to hear of his death which occurred in Liverpool, England, he having sailed for Europe some weeks ago. He was a prominent citizen of Elk county and had taken a leading part in the politics of that section on the Democratic side. He was born in Hublersbure, this coun- ty, in 1839, and received a portion of his education in Bellefonte. Going to Clearfield county he studied law with Hon. William A. Wallace,. and moved to Ridgway, Kik county, in 1861, to practice his profession. In addition to his practice he became largely interested in the timber lands of that region. He served the counties of Clearfield, Klk and Forestin thehouse of representatives in 1870-1, was elected to the State Sen- ate in 1878 and re-elected in 1882. He was useful both as a citizen and 8 mem- ber of the Democratic party. 1Itis un- derstood that he became ill on his pas- sage out and died soon after landing at Liverpool, his disease being a form of heart affection. His wife, who was with him, will return with the remains. —-—Vote for Bigler, Riley, Schuffer, Meyer, Johnson and Neil. TALES oF THE SEAsoN.— The snakes | did extremely well this year. Consider- ing the unfavorable character of the sca- son they kept well to the front, elaim- ing the atiention of the newspapers and furnishing the snake editors with many interesting items. When the season opened it looked as if the reptiles were disposed to be shy and there was every appearance that it wasn’t going to be much of a snake year. But when the truthful scribes who give at‘ention to snake literature began to getin their work and the returns commenced to come in from the back districts the newspapers had more than their usual number of accounts of mammoth black snakes, vie- ious blowing vipers, rapid racers, ven- omous copperheads and sportiverattlers. It is doubtful whether any former year surpassed 1889 in the length, thickness, liveliness and activity ‘of the serpents of different species which were brought to the attention of an appreciative public through the columns of the press. If there is anything that in point of interest sur passes a good fish story it is a first-class snake story. Bat the season for such narratives has closed, as the rep- tiles have withdrawn from public life, and the gay and festive bear appears up- on the scene to furnish items for enter- prising journals. When the fall opens these interesting animals fill a journalis- tie vacancy occasioned by the disappear- ance of the snakes. This fall starts well with bear. There had been a little pre- liminary skirmishing with bear stories of minor interest already this season when the Lock Haven Democrat, which evidently has a bear editor, opened up last week in great shape with the follow- ing first-class bear narrative: On Queen’s Run mountain on Thurs- day night of this week three brothers, Jacob, Abraham snd Dudley Wenker, had an adventure with a monster bear which they are not likely to forget, no matter if they live to be as old as Methu- selah. Ttappears that the trio of broth- ers, accompanied by their dogs, were out coon hunting, when all at once the dogs gave notice by tremendous barking that they had run across larger game than coon. As fast as their legs could carry them the brothers hurried to the spot wherethe dogs were and to their sur- prise discovered a mammoth bear, an immense fellow, the sight of which in spite of their dogs and their guns, al- most caused their hair to stand on end, “like quills upon the fretful porcupine.’ That the bear was a rouser is proven by the fact that Jacob Wenker, who stands over six feet high in his stocking feet, said that it was taller than he was as it walked around on its hind feet, which it was doing when they first beheld it, in a ring about eighteen feet in diameter which the the animal had made by breaking down all the brush inside of the circular space. In regular John L. Sullivan style the bear seemed to be daring either man or dog to walk into the ring and get knocked out, but the dogs were wise and kept their distance and as neither of the men cared about sparring for points with Mr. Bruin he was allowed to wear the belt, while Ja- cob bethought him of his Winchester rifle, which he coolly brought to his shoulder, sending a dose of cold lead in- to the body of the proud king of the forest. And now the excitement began, for the bear making several leaps clear- ed the ring and made directly for the man who had put the bullet into him. Just as the bear was about to strike Ja- cob on the breast, however, with his fore paws, crack went Abraham's rifle and with another bullet in the creature it fell all doubled up at Jacob's feet. This was the signal for the three dogs to pile upon their enemy and they made the at- tack in savage style, but the tussle was a tremendous one and the dogs found that they had more than met their match. The hunters found that they could not get another shot ir, as the dogs and the bear wereso mixed up that they conld not tell which was which and were afraid to hoot for fear of killing one or more of the former. The fight between the dogs and bear lasted a long time, the bear all the time trying to get away, and when about a mile from the spot where it first began, the bear suddenly grabbed oneof the dogs by the small of the back, shaking it like a terrier would a rat, in- flicting injuries trom which the poor dog died the nextday. This scemed to take the snap out of the other two dogs, who were thoroughly exhausted by the long struggle and covered with blood from the bear’s wounds and their own, and; being unable to any longer contin- ue the battle, the monster suddenly made for the thicket and got away, leaving the hunters who had followed the fight in jthe lurch and greatly disappointed. While the dogs and bear were having their first fight Jacob and Abra- ham missed their young sv brother Dud- ley, and as this was his first adventure witha bear they became somewhat alarm- ed. Looking around for him, however, they soon found him hanging to a sap- ling directly over the bear, with his legs drawn up so that the bear could not reach him. After coming ‘own he said he was mightily afraid that the sapling would break and that he did not want to meet a bear again after night, for re- member this adventure was. at night during a coon hunt. Had it beenin the daytime the bear most likely would have been captured. Several parties say they have seen a bear in these mountains which was the largest they ever saw. Most likely it is the same pone, which Mr. Wenker says would have dressed over 400 pounds. ——Applebutter,Jellies, Jams, Honey Pickles, Olives, Table Oil, and Ketchup at Sechler & Co.'s. ——Last Sunday Lucy, a two-year old child of Mr. John Corman, residing on Quaker Hill, this place, was choked to death by the kernel of a peanut that lodged in her windpipe. The physicians who were called to her assistance, Drs. Dorworth, VanTries and Seibert, were unable to dislodge the obstruction. An examination was made afier the death of the child which showed that por- tions of the nut had lodged below the larynx. WALL Parer.--Large stock—must be sold.

He returned home a few weeks ago, feeling unwell, and vas shortly afterwards prostrated with ty- phoid fever. He was a young man of estimable character, esteemed by all who knew him, and whose early death will be sincerly mourned by a large circle of friends. Married. McCLOSKEY—CULVER—In Olean, N.
