amount that was made by other philan-
thropists who made themselves conspic-
nous in operating for the relief of the
flood sufferers will always be an un-
solved conundrum.

The operations will start with a capaci-
ty of making six to ten million bricks

| OcroBErR WEATHER.—The month of
; October this year was the coldest for ten
| years past, the average temperature for
_ | that period being 55.9 degrees. The to-
| tal rainfall for the month was 5.61
i inches, and there were fourteen rainy
days. The prevailing winds were from
the North. There were flurries of snow
on the 7th, 14th and 22d, and thunder
storms on the 1st and 27th. The wild
geese passed southward on the 22d,
23d and 29ti..
Beginning with January 1st next, the
Rev. T. De Witt Talmage, D. D., will
become one of the editors of The Ladies’
Home Journal, of Philadelphia. The
famous preacher will have a regular de-
partment each month, written by him-
self, with the title “Under My Study
Lamp.” His first contribution will ap-
pear in the January number of the
Jonrnal. Dr. Talmage’ salary is said
to be one of the largest ever paid for
editorial work.

Mrs. Ervizasers FowLer.—Mrs.
Elizabetu Fowler, who died in Liberty
township, Centre County, Pa., on; the
25th of Oct., 1889, was born at Penn’s
Manor, Bucks county, Pa., in 1803.
She was the mother of 23 children, of
whom 16 reached the age of maturity
and of whom John T. Fowler, one of
the most prominent and successful busi-
ness men of Centre county, is the eldest
son by the second husband. Mrs. Fow-
ler was a devoted christian; her hand
was contantly open to the poor and dis-
tressed. The high esteem in which she
was held by all who knew her bears
testimony that she was a lady in whom
there was no guile. The monument of
her ancestry is prominently dedicated in
the Episcopal church at Bristol, Pa.
She was married three times. 1st, to
Isaac Kirkendall, of Easton, Pa; 2nd,
David Peter Fowler, of Pike county, Pa.
3rd, to James Buckley, of Manchester,
England. John Stockman, the father
of Mrs. Fowler, came from Bristol, Eng-
land, and located in Bucks county,
which was at that time a perfect wilder-
ness, at the place now known as
Bristol, which he named in honor of
the city trom which he came. Mis.
Fowler’s ancestry came to America in
company with Wm. Penn and were
personal friends and virtually speaking
they were a portion of his household.
The stone house which stands between
Bristol and Tullytown on the banks of
the Delaware, which was erected about
1700 and now used for a residence, is the
building in which Mrs. Fowler was

pondent the particulars of a fatal acci-
dent which happened in that neighbor-
hood last Monday morning, it occurring

Messrs. Tate, Foster and R. Frank Bar-
tholomew were engaged, the latter be-
ing foreman for J. CO. Dale, jobber for
Graham & Co. They were loading logs
on a truck. Having put on top of the
load a 16 foot log which scaled over 600
feet, Bartholomew and Foster got up to
shift it.
offithrowing both men to the ground. Mr.
Foster escaped with slight bruises, but
before Mr. Bartholomew could get out
of the way the large log rolled on him,
catching him in the abdomen and hold-
ing him until Tate and Graham lifted the
log sufficient for him to pull himself out.
He was immediately put on the truck
and taken to the camp where all possi-
ble assistance was given him, but his in-
ternal injuries were so great that he died
at 12.45, a little over two hours after he
had been hurt.
The deceased was born and raised at
or near Hublersburg, this county, and
lived there until about three years ago
when Le moved to Centre Hall, where
his remains were taken on Monday. He
was a devoted member of the Presby-
terian church for a number of years
and while on his dying bed he gave his
fellow workmen warning to be ready.
Then he made oneof the most ap-
propriate prayers any one ever heard,

fore assistance could be rendered were
totally destroyed. The loss will be $5,-
000, on which, it is said, there is no in-
surance, the policy having recently ex-
pired. The fire is thought to have been
the work of an incendiary.
The first of the series of enter-
tainments to be given the presentseason,
under the management of the W. C. T.
U. of this place, takes place on Tuesday
evening Nov. 26th, in the Court House.
It will be a concert given by the “Irish
National Concert Company,” one of
the best—if not the very best musical
organization in the country. Lovers of
good music will be delighted with the
programme as the ladies have gone to a
large expense to secure the best of tal-

house will repay their efforts and outlay-

——The celebrated Dr. MeGlynn
will deliverone of hisinimitable lectures
in the Court House in this place next
Tuesday evening, the 19th inst., thus af-
fording our people an opportunity of
listening to the doctrines he is deliver-
ing on the important questions of land,
taxation, labor, and other socialistic
points. “Our Common Schools and
their Enemies” is one of his favorite
subjects, and he is particularly strong
on the question of land naturalization.
His “anti-poverty” views, as he eluci-
dates them, make him particularly
strong as a champion of those who are
taking a stand against the encroach-
ments of the monopolists and the pluto-
crats. One of his finest efforts is on
+The/Pclitics of the Lord's Prayer.”’ His |
natural eloquence, clear tones, winning
smile, and plain, matter-of-fact and di-
rect way of stating things, hold his au-
dience from the beginning to the end of
his lectures. Admission 25 cents. Re-
served seats 10 cents extra.
More extensive coaldevelopments
are to be made at Houtzdale, as we learn
that there is a project on foot to organize
a company for the purpose of testing the
extent and quality of the second vein of
coal in that vicinity, the vein underlying
the mines from which is now obtained
the celebrated Moshannon coal. It is
understood that the Houtz heirs, who
own the land, have made a proposition
to give any person making the invest-
ment all the output of the first year, and
thereafter to receive 2 cents a ton on all
the coal mined from the second vein.
It is this proposition that has led to the
talk of organizing a company. The
cost, it is stated, will be between $15,000
and $20,000. It is also rumored that
the Berwind- White coal company would
make the test on the terms proposed by
the Houtz heirs. Should the test be
made and the coal be found of good
quality and workable, a long prosperous
future for Houtzdale would be assured.
——Our good friend, Mr. John T.
Fowler, Esq., of Fowler station, has been
having more than his share of the trou-
bles of this life during the past few weeks.
On the 25th ult., his aged mother was
suddenly called to her long home, and
on the 23d all that was mortal of a
dear and devoted wife. passed quietly
away in the city of Philadelpnia, where
she was receiving medical treatment.
Of the elder Mrs. Fowler an extended
notice will be found elsewhere in this
number of the WarcHyaN. Mrs. Har-
riet Atkison Fowler, wife of Mr. John
T. Fowler, suffered greatly for some
time before death came to her relief.
Her power of endurance was wonderful,
she having lived and suffered through six
separat: and distinet attacks of paralysis.
She was a woman of most indomitable
will, charitable and kind, loved and es-
teemed by all. Those who were ac-
quainted with her know and appre-
ciate her many christian acts, and the
community in which she resided, and
friends with whom she associated, feel
and know the
great loss they have
in her death. Her remains
were placed in the cemetery at Tyrone
THE PAsT YEAR.-~As is our custom at
the end of the building season, we give
an account of the houses that have been
constructed in Bellefonte during the past
year. We regret that they are not as
numerous nor as valuable as those that
were put up last year, and still further
behind those erected two years ago, in
number and value. Encouragement for
building does not seem to exist to any
great degree notwithstanding the prom-
ise of the good times that were to follow
the election of Harrison and the triumph
of the high tariff. There is a marked
contrast with the building that was done
when honest Grover rulad, although the
Democrats made no promises of good
times. The bulk of building in the
line of dwelling houses is usually done
for working people and men in moderate
circumstances, and this class-hasn’t had
much encouragement to build during
the past year. The following is the
limited result of this year’s work *
Howard * Street—Robert Brannon, a
two story frame, Wm. Clark, two story
frame, each costing about $1,000 and
both built by Isaac Miller; Hugh Tay"
lor, an addition to his dwelling at a cost
of about $500, by Isaac Miller; Mr.
Port, two story frame, about $1200, by
Samuel Gault; Thomas Barnhart, two
story frame, about $1000, by Wm.
Poorman; addition to cemerery build-
ing by Daniel Eberhart.
Lamb Street—F. C. Richards, two 2
frame houses, worth about $800 each,
by Samuel Gault; John Harris, two

Bishop Street—Jesse Cox, two story
frame, about $700, by Wm. Poorman ;
addition to Charles Smith’s dwelling, by
Daniel Eberhart; Wm. Utz, double
two story frame, about $1500, by Mich-
ael Kerstetter.
Logan Street—Henry Lowery, two
story frame, about $1000, built by him-
selt; Wm. Shull, two story frame,
about $1000, built by himself; James

same value,by Hunter & Lowery ; Sam-
uel Fisher, two story frame, about $500,

East High Street—Harry Baney, two
story frame, about -$1200, by Samuel
Beaver Street—Samuel Gault, two 2
story frame houses, about $800 each,
built by himself.
Spring Street—Dr. Van Tries, addi-
tien to his residence, about $1000, by
Isaac Miller.
Water Street— Wilbur Twitmire,
double two story frame, about $1500, by
Hunter & Lowery.
West High Street—Dr. Hale, a large
two story frame building, 200 feet in
length, covered with iron imitation of
brick, intended for business purposes,
built by Isaac Miller.
To the above is to be added the work
that has been done on the new Lutheran
church, corner of Linn and Allegheny
streets, the foundation of which has been
A HaxpsoME CHURCH.—Among the
numerous fine edifices in this section de-
signed by Mr. Robert Cole, architect, of
this place,is the new Presbyterian church
now in course of erection at Mill Hall,
of which he is not only the designer, but
also the contractor for its construction.
It is being built on the Queen Ann
style. The main audience room is 40
by 50 feet in size; chapel and Sunday
school apartments 24 by 48. The tow-
er is 66 feet in height, the first 27 feet
from the foundation being of brick and
the balance of slate and wood. The
windows are all of Gothic style,furnished
with stained glass, the windowsin gables
being particularly handsome. The scats
are arranged in a semi-circle around the
pulpit, affording a seating capacity of
about 350. The entire floor, consisting
of three apartments to be used for audi-
ence room, chapel and Sunday schcol,
is so arranged that it can be thrown into
one, and the choir, containing the or-
gan, is so situated that it can be used
for service in any of these apartments.
Mr. Cole has shown much ingenuity in
its construction. The building was
started about the first of October and it
is expected that there will be preaching
in it between Christmas and New
——The other day the people of Sum-
merhill were surprised to see a wagon
passing through their town from which
a man’s feet were protruding. Upon in-
vestigation, the body of John Dunmire,
a farmer of the neighborhood, was found
in the wagon, and the supposition is
that he dropped dead. He was about
60 years of age.— Philipsburg Journal.
STREET—Among the many handsome
residences on Linn Street, this place,
which have made that avenue famous
for beautiful homes, another one Las!
put in an appearance this season fn
the large structure which will here after
be the home of Mr. F. W. Crider.
Mr. Crider’s old residence was a stone
building of fair proportions and apper-
ance, but he determined to enlarge it,
and by the architectural skill of Mr.
Robert Cole it has been completely
transformed, having been converted
into one of the largest and hand-
somest structures on the street. The
front is 56 feet, the elevation having
been increased to three stories, the ad-
ded story being a handsome elaboration
of steel shingles, slate and terra cotta.
A tower arises above the entrance, with
open balconies at the first and second
stoies,and crowned by a graceful cupola,
it affording a light and airy foreground,
to the massive stone walls. The side
front presents a depth of 74 feet, and
there are 86 feet of porch, 8 feet broad
on the front and side. Two handsome-
ly finished dormer windows project from
the third story and an ornate gable on
each side elevation. There are also five
balconies with attractive ornamentation.
The roof is crowned by yellow terra cotta
cresting. The style of the building is an
approached to the Queen Ann,but with
such an eleboration of ornaments that
it is difficult for one who is not an
architect to discribe it.
The first floor, in addition to a hall 32
feet long and 8 broad, will consist ofs;x
apartments—parlor 14 by 26; setting
room, 18 by 26 ; dining room 16 by 20;
a small apartment for a library ; kitchen
16 by 19; and laundry, 12 by 12. A
capacious vestibule, 8 by 10 feet in size
and handsomely tiled,leads into the hall.
A broad stairway leads to the 3d story
with quartered oak railing. The ront
and vestibule doors will be fitted up
with beveled French plate glass.
The second floor includes six rooms
and a fine bath room, and there are six
large rooms on the third floor. Finer
apartments can be found in but few
private residences. All the windows will
be fitted up with the best quality of plate
glass and at the end of hall will be a
splendid horse shoe window glazed with
cathedral glass at an expense of about
$10 a square foot. The front and vesti-
bule doors will be veneered oak and the
entire inside finish willbe of hardwood
such as oak, walnut, blackbirch, cherry
maple,ash and mahogany,the parlor be-
ing fitted upwith the last mentioned wood
The building will be heated with steam,
supplied with electric light, and, in fact
with all the modern improvements.
Mr. Crider deserves great credit for
his disposition to improve the town ar-
chitecturally. The fine bulding he
erected on Allegh eany street last year is
an ornament and credit to the town ; the
reconstructed stone building on High
street is one of the handsomest buildings
in the place, and the beautiful home
that will soon be ready for his occupan-
cey on Linn street will be a conspicuous
and attractive feature of one of the hand-
somest streets in this part of the State.
In these improvements he was ably as-
sisted by the skill of Mr.Cole.
Dearu or Mrs. W. H. Purries.—
One Friday morning last, as the town
clock in the village of Aaronsburg was
striking the hour of three, the spirit of
Clara F. Philips passed into the world
beyond. Mrs. Philips, until last sum-
mer, seemed to be the possessor of per-
fect health, and her cheerful disposition
and sanguine temperament no doubt
for along time prevented any grave ap-
prehensions on the part of her imme-
diate friends and family. But through
the autumn months she began losing
flesh very perceptibly, and on the 8th
of November her disease, diabetes,
proved fatal. Mrs. Philips was the
eldest child and daughter of Jp G. Mey-
er, of Aaronsburg, and was born about
two miles south of Aaronsburg, Dec. 2d
1849. She was a sister of Mrs LL. E.
Stover, residing at Aaronsburg, and W.
T. Meyerand J.C. Meyer, of Bellefonte,
In 1876 she was married to W. H. Phil-
ips, a prominent and successful mer-
chant in Aaronsburg. One child, a
daughter Elsie, was born to them. She
and her father ave left to mourn the
loss of an affectionate wife and mother.
Mrs Philips was remarkable for cheer-
fulness and amiability, and the great
number who attended her faneral, Sun-
day ast, bore willing testimony to the
fuct thatshe was not known to have an
enemy in the entire community.
