Hon. Wm. A. Wallace, who is now
in England, wrote to the Philadelphia
Times the following account cf Senator
Hall’s death.
Hall had left for London on a business trip
connected with his profession and his stay
was to have been brief. He was fairly well
when he sailed, accompanied by his wife and
business associate. .
On the voyage and near its close while sitting
on deck, he had a seiznre which the doctors now
think was paralysis. Dr. Crawford (of May-
brick case), who was called to consult’ is clear-
ly of opinion that it was brain disease of some
form. After that seizure he rallied and to all
but his wife seemed entirely rational. She
says he was not so, except upon matters occur-
ing prior to his attack. He had two addition-
al convulsions or attacks on the ship, but was
able to sit up when he reached here on Friday
3rd. His brother was telegraphed to at Berlin
and reached here Monday morning last. He
seemed to improve under the care of
the new physicians here, but on Monday
night was again stricken and in an hour was
dead. His disease undoubtedly was“brainfag”
in some form.
What a lesson this isto all of us. He was
bright, genial, logical, in apparently good health
and yet the machine had run down, his men-
tal faculties had been overtaxed and the pen-
alty was death.
In him the bar has lost an able and upright
gentleman, the State a far-seeing and wise
statesman, with a grasp equal to that of any,
and I have lost a pupil, a partner, a colleague
and a friend. His wife and his brother sail
in the Umbri(awhich carries this letter) in
the morning with his body. 1 return to Lon-
don to-morrow.
Faran AccripeNT.—Frank Gallagher,
a resident of Woodland -and employe of
the Pennsylvania railroad, while doing
du‘y with the work gang on the Tyrone
and Clearfield branch, fell off a hand
car on which he and a number of other
employes were returning from work
Sunday afternoon last. The accident
occurred a short distance above Steiner's
station. It is thought the handle which
Gallagher was working struck him on
the head, causing bim to fall off. He
was dragged a distance of almost two
hundred yards before the car was stop-
ped. Oneleg was almost completely
cut in two, his head and face were bad-
ly cut and he received internal injuries.
He was brought to Philipsburg, taken
to the supervisor's office and the com-
pany surgeon, Dr. Aliport, summoned.
Every possible care and attention was
given the young, man but his injuries
proved fatal within a few hours after
the accident.
Bapry Cur Up.—A day or two ago,
says the Williamsport Gazette and
Bulletin, George Weaver, of Cogan
House, met with a serious accident
while working on one of Daniel Kava-
naugh’s job on Smith’s Run. He struck
his axe into a tree that was bent down
by other timber, and he was thrown
some thirty feet down the embankment |
among rocks. A portion of the left side
of his nose was entirely cut off,and he
was also cut from the top of lower lip to
the lower part of the chin, the lip hang-
ing down clear of the chin. Dr. Reitter
dressed the wounds in a most satisfac- |
tory manner, and the unfortunate man, |
who 1s about sixty vears of age, bore up
under the operation most herojeally.
Quick Work.—The Lock Haven
Democrat speaks of the quick manner
in which the new iron railroad bridge
was put over the creek at Mill Hall last |
After the Bald Eagle Valley |
train had passed down on its way to
Lock Haven which it reaches at1l a. m.,
the work of placing the new bridge was
begun, and in an hour and a-half the
structure was firmly fixed and a train
passed over it.

stance of the wonderful power and
facilities of the great railroad company,
the name of which has become celebrat-
ed throughout the world. The Beech
Creek bridge at the same place and over
the same stream willsoon be ready to put
in position and a large force of men are
being worked for this purpose.

sioners in October, 1839 ; John Miller's
commission as Sheriff’ was issued Novem-
congregation, was quite a pleasant and
enjoyable occasion. The Pleasant Gap
Cornet Band was present and has the
thanks of the Society for the music fur-
nished and the manner in which they
made themselves useful generally.
Five or six boys, who think they are
men and make a practice of carrying a
jug with them, were intruders. This is
the second time that they have thrust
themselves, uninvited and unwelcome
| as they are, into this Society. They are
all known and if they come again, in
this manner, they will be punished to
the full extent of the law.
——For some time past a half dozen |
{or more of Lock Haven’s

perfecting arrangements for putting
down a test well in the hope of striking
either natural gas or oil. The prospects |
| are favorable for an early commence- |
ment of the work, and some day in the |
near future the machinery will arrive
and a practical man who has had a large |
experience in putting down gas wells !
will be here to superintend the work.
There are several places within a few
miles of the city where gas is found es-
caping from the ground and at one of |
those places the test well will be put |
down.—Lock Haven Express.
——1In speaking of the Bellefonte
men who werein Philipsbwg last week
the Ledger of that place says: Kx-
Sheriff Tom Dunkle was tearing around
town for two or three days and from the
look of things Tom was getting in some
good political work. He had on his
campaign gait, the kind he used to wear
when he used to hump himself around
the South precinct of Rush about two
| days before election. That gait carried
{| Thomas into the shenff’s office all the
| same, and is a hard step to beat.

The animal was killed shortly after being

The death of Christian Musser occurred at
Danville on the 16th inst of heart failure at
the age of 63 years, 9 months and 9 days. His
remains were brought home by Mr. Goss, on
Saturday. The furneral took place on Sunday
from the residence of his brother-in-law George
Ard, attended by a large number of relations
and neighbors by whom the deceased was
held iw high esteem. For some years his
mind was weak and about a year ago it was
thought best to take him to Danville for spec-
ial treatment. For time he improved, but the
Johnstown tradegy in which he lost a son and
other portions of his family was more than his
shattered mind could bear. Some weeks ago
his attending physician wrote to his wife that
his recovery was impossible ; so the message
was not unexpected. He died suddenly in a
fit of grief from the above stated cause. His
spirit has gone to the realms of bliss where
grief is not known, friends never part,and the
grave never dug. He leaves a wife and a num-
ber of grown children, residents of Johnstown,
some of them being prostrated with typhoid
fever. Sad to think that not one of that once
happy family could be present to take
a last look and drop a tear over the remains
of a kind husband and indulgent father.
