ago, the funeral services being conduct-
ed by Rev. Wright of Milesburg.
——There has beena good deal said
in the newspapers this fall about great
feats in corn husking, but considering
the age of Harrison Long, of Howard,
who is 74, he took them all down when
he husked 1a8t week 100 bushels in nine
hours on a farm of Mr. Isaac Frain in
Nittany valley. It would have been a
big thing for a much younger man.
James Walker, of Cuto, this
county, last week killed the boss coon

a splendid subject for Quay and Wana-
maker to fry the faut out of ?

Centre and neighboring counties, He
died on Saturday, November 9th, at his
home in Bloomsburg where he resided
after he retired from the active labors
of the ministry.
Alem Brittain was born in Columbia
county, September 17, 1809 and was in
his 81st year at the time of his death.
He entered the Baltimore conference of
the Methodist Episcopal church in 1830. |
His first field of labor was Philipsburg
circuit, embracing portions of Centre,
Clearfield, Indiana and Elk counties.
In a semi-centennial sermon which he
preached before the Central Pennsylva-
nia conference at its session in Altoona
in 1880, he thus describes this field:
«Tt is now nearly three hundred miles
in extent, which I traveled oncein three
weeks, preaching from seventeen to
twenty times; finding my way some-
times by deer and elk paths frecm one
settlement to another; swimming my
horse through the streams in mid-winter,
and not seeing fire for fifteen miles after
getting out of the ice and water. You
may judge that I needed no cold bath
to keep me in good health for the next
twenty-four hours. I have had, breth-
ren, to come through the wilderness
eight miles on foot to pilot me along
the deer paths to the place of my des-
tination. For this hard work I received
just five dollars per month, or at the
rate of $60 per year. There are now
twelve charges in less than the bounds
then occupied, employing as many minis-
ters, for whose support they raise an-
nually $8,000.”
Mr. Brittain was abundant in labors,
continuing in the ministiy until a few
years ago, when he located on account
of age. He was married in 1834 to
Miss Jemima P. Goodfellow, of Clear-
field, who, with five sonsand one daugh-
ter, survives him. His last illness was
very brief. He had been in his usual
health until Saturday morning, when
he complained of intense pain about his
chest, and his death on the evening of
that day was a great shock to his friends.
The funeral services were held in the
Bloomsburg Methodist Episcopal church
on Wednesday of last week. Brief
addresses were delivered by Revs. G. H.
Day, F. B. Riddle and E. H. Yocum.
A large number of ministers attended.
The remains were interred at Berwick.
Mr. Brittain was a clear, forcible
preacher, in ability far above the aver-
age of his day. Ile possessed a ready
command of larguage and was always
happy in his selection of such words as
would always most clearly convey the
idea to be presented, His life was a
busy and useful one and he died with
the consciousness that his labors had
been entirely successful.
A REMINDER oF JUNE 1.—It rained al-
most incessantly during the night and
the forenoon of to-day but ceased for a
time about 2 o’clock p. m., giving some
hopes of a clear-up. Some alarm was
manifested by a number of panic-strick-
en persons who were sure we were
going to have another big flood. The
rain poured down as if it had just made
up its mind to drown all creation, and
the prospect was anything but cheerful.
The Baid Eagle creek has overflown
its banks and there is about a four foot
flood in the river here. At Clearfield
(at 2 o'clock p. m.) there is a three
foot flood and the rain has turned to a
drizzle. The river here has raised
thirteen inches in three hours.—Lock
Haven Democrat of Tuesday.
Depury CoNsTABLES.—Under an
act which became a law on the 9th of
May, 1889, courts in the several coun-
ties in this State may, upon the peti-
tion of not less than 25 taxpayers, ap-
point such a namber of Deputy Consta-
bles as in their judgment the case may
warrant. The Constables may exercise
all the powers of policemen in cities in
the several townships where they are ap-
pointed, and the keepers of jails and
lockups are required to receive all per-
sons arrested by these officers. When
on duty these officers shall wear badges
with the townships name on them.
The courts shall award them such coin-
pensation as they may deem fitting, and
discharge them when their services are
no longer necessary.
ScouNDREL AT Larae.—The Wil-
liamsport morning paper states that on
Friday last a scoundrel persuaded a
peor, weak-minded girl in Jersey Shore
to go down to the city with him. At
the Eagle Hotel the fellow represented
that they were husband and wife, and
registered as follows: “Andrew War-
ner, and wife, Jersey Shore.” The
name, no doubt, is a fictitious one,
but it is hoped that it will not save
him from the punishment he so rich-
ly merits.

John Bierly, the Tylersville
blacksmith in Sugar Valley, will close
the 73d year of his age Nov. 28. He
worked regularly at blacksmithing ever
since the summer of 1828, and has per-
haps shod more horses than any other
smith in this part of the state.
—— Part of the old stone bridge at
Mill Hall was blown up with dynamite
the other day by some workmen who
were engaged in removing it. One of
the large stones thrown up by the force
of the explosive landed on the roof of
George Bower's house and went through
to the ground floor. Fortunately no
body was hurt.
—— Peter Kuhn, aged 86, Boalsburg’s
oldest citizen, never missed an election
since he had the freeman’s right of cast-
ing a ballot, and therefore he went to
the polls on the 5th inst. and voted the
full Democratic ticket. No wonder the
Democrats won such a glorious victory
in the county when old, young and
middle aged voters of the party united
in routing the enemy.
——An attempt was made last night,
says the Tyrone Herald of last Saturday,
to burn the Robert Hare Powel works
at the Dry Hollow ore mines. The
buildings were saturated with coal oil
and the fire had gained considerable
headway before it was discovered. For-
tunately no great damage was done.
The parties are known and were to be
arrested and taken to jail at Hunt-
Our little neighbor, the Daily
News, intending to speak of the en-
couraging manner in which the week
of prayer of the Y. M. C. A. began,
said it “started out very ominously, in-
deed.” There may be good omens and
bad omens, but when the word ‘‘omin-
ous’ is used it is by the best usage in-
variably applied to the latter. What
our neighbor probably intended to say
was that the week of prayer started out
very auspiciously.
Farmers should bear in mind
that the only dealers in choice re cleaned
clover seed and choice Timothy seed in
Centre County, are Messrs. McCalmont
& Co., of Bellefonte, who have recently
received a large consignment especially
selected for their customers. Don’t fail
to examine the Clover and Timothy
seed offered for sale by McCalmont &
Co., before purchasing. Farmer's coming
to Court next week can take advantage
of the opportunity.
———Mr. Philip Snook, an old resident
of Gregg townsuip, died very suddenly
at his home on Saturday, 9th inst.,
heart disease being the cause of his sud-
den taking off. He was well and fav-
orable known in the eastern part of
Penn’s Valley and during his active
life had been a farmer, but a few years
ago retired to Spring Mills. He left a
wife and six sous to mourn his sudden
departure. llaving been a consistent
member of the Lutheran churh he
lived and died a Christian. The Demo-
cratic party never had «more faithful
supporter. At the last election he and
his six sons contributed their votes to
swell the great Democratic victory in
this county. He was buried in the
Heckman cemetery, Rev. Fisher per-
forming the services: His age was 65
years, 4 months and 28 days.

ed $50 damage and threatened to biing

borough solicitor, Mr. Dale, a compro-
mise was made for $20. Council in-
structed the payment of that amount.
Tue Mixers’ Hosprran.—The Phil-
ipsburg Journal, describing the miners’
hospital which is approaching comple-
tion at that place, says:
The centre of the building is of brick
and the wings on either side are of wood
construction, making the erection a
very picturesque biock and stands out
in bold relief. It, however, is very de-
ceptive with respect to its size. From
its appearance in front one is impressed
with the idea that it is a very capacious
erection, but on entering the mind is
immediately disabused of that, for stand-
ing in the vestibule the whole is taken
mn almost at a glance. On the ground
floor the wings consist of two wards for
patients, one side for males and the
other for females, well lighted and airy
and perfect ventilation; in the centre
part of the building, in the front, are
the dissecting and surgical rooms, on
the opposite side of the passage is the
dining room, larder and kitchen, the
latter being fitted with all the newest
cooking apparatus. The upper part of
the centre has a suite of small rooms for
‘he resident surgeon. The building
will be warmed by steam the boiler oc-
cupying a portion of the capacious cel-
lar. The ground surrounding the hos-
pital will be rendered a pleasant pro-
menade for the convalescent, the south-
ern view having a pretty aspect during
the summer season especially. A
morgue is to be erected in the rear of
the hospital.
County.—The Lock Have Express
says that on Friday afterncor while
threshing grain on the farm of Adam
Myers, Dunstable township, a young
man named John Blush met with a ter-
rible accident which will maim him for
life. Blush was feeding the sheaves of
grain into the thresher when his hand
was caught by the swiftly revolving
spiked cylinder, and his arm drawn into
the machine. The hand and arm were
wangled dreadfully. Dr. Shoemaker.of
Lock Haven, was sent for and amputated
the arm near the elbow.
day afternoon while Charley Nelson
was hunting in the vicinity of Steiner's
dam, he heard wild screams com-
ing from the neighborhood of the
stream. Hastily dropping his gun, he
van with all speed toward the water, and
upon approaching it, was horrified to
seen young boy being rapidly carried
down the current. Without a
ment’s hesitation Charlie plunged into
the water and rescued the drowning
boy, who proved to be a son of Mr.
William of Chester Hill.—

produced. The fact is that nobody be-
lieved that the party trying to play

——The Bellefonte acquaintances of
John M. Ward, the famous base ball
expert and world renowned short-stop,
whose wife was Miss Helen. Dauvray,
the actress, will take interest in the fol-
lowing pleasant little incident in a re-
cent number of the New York Star:
“I met Mrs Helen Dauvray-Ward the
other day gazing into a shop window
filled with lovely brocades. ‘Alas!’
she sighed. “How I would like to or-
der ever s0 many yards of these beauti-
ful fabrics. Why don’t I? Ah, well,
she went on, ‘I have no place to wear
them now. Mr. Ward positively will
not let me act. Bach season I think I
can cajole him into letting me have my,
way about it, but it’s no use. Of course
i miss it. I love the stage; it’s my
normal condition to act, and —well, I’m
heartbroken about it.” As she said this
with a twinkle of her bright eyes and
a smile, she did not look very heart-
broken. Mr. Ward must be an unus-
ually devoted husband to induce her to
change her purpose.”
Coxprrion oF SEELY Horkins.—The
chief interest of the Court next week
will centre in the trial of W. S. Hop-
kins, who, unless something unforeseen
should intervene, will then be called to
answer for the crime of having murder-
ed his wife and mother-in-law, the cir-
cumstances of which have already been
fully published. When first inca cera-
ted his condition was such, on account
of self-inflicted injuries, that it was
thought he might not be in condition
for trial at the next court. There was
almost an entire paralysis of his left
side, rendering him helpless, and the in-
jury to his head, it was thought, mizht
mentally incapacitate him for trial.
Since than he has undergone great
physical improvement, regaining the
use of his left arm and leg to a great
ectent, and without any trace of his
mind being affected by the bullet
wounds in the head. Ils attendants
report him as being in good condition —
in fact getting quite fat, his appetite
being extremely good. The only time
he needs the Doctor's attendance is
when he overeats himself and requires
something to work it off. Conscience
doesn't appear to have token the keen
edge off his appetite. He is reported to
to be in excellent spirits, with a decid-
ed inclination to amuse nimself with
card playing, which employs much of
bis time. Swearing comes quite handy
to him. Altogether he does not seem
to regard his situation as a perilous one,
professing to believe that he was justi-
fied in the act he committed and that he
will be so held by the Jury that is going
to try him.
