Deprcation of THE CATHOLIC
CuurcH.—The dedication of the new
Catholic church last Sunday was an
event of great interest to a large por-
tion of the citizens of this place and the
surrounding country. 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-
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.
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

menced his pastorate in November 1880, |

——The following report about chang-
ing the location of the grangers’ picnic

be interesting to our farmer readers, al-

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

ever a person has been found dead,
whether the circumstances were suspi-

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.
#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.

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.
