On Wednesday night of last
week the remains of a man were found

this to say of one of Bellefonte’s promi-

he has held for several terms, wus in the
city to-day, en route for home from New.

covered to be on flre about five o'clock
on Monday morning, and was complete-
ly destroyed including the grain, hay,
cattle, ete., it contained except the
horses which were rescued. As none of
the family were up at the time it is
believed to have been of incendiary ori-
gin. There is a small insurance. The
loss will be fully five thousand ‘dollars.
——With regard to the killing ofa
man along the Beech Creek railroad on
‘Wednesday night of last week between
Hawk Run and Philipsburg, who was
so mangled up that he could not be rec-
ognized, it has since been ascertained
that he was a scotch miner named John
Nelson and the place where he was
killed was Troys bridge. The man
had been drinking and itis supposed
that be either fell asleep on the track or
was too drunk to step out of the way of
the train. He has a wite and four
children in Scotland and his father and
a brother-in-law are living at West
Moshannon. His remains were taken
to Philipsburg and given decent burial.

amount paid Col. Mullen for services at

told and considered, Centre county did
not get left much when the distribution
of public funds was made.
DerLoRABLE IaNoRANCE.—One would
hardly have thought that there were
any people in Centre county as ignorant
as those connected with the Weaver
homicide. Those people do not seem to
have any conprehension of the character
of the otferse that was committed, or of
the consequences that follow the com-
mission of such acts. When, after the
killing of the old man, the mother,
daughter and son were put on board
the train at Coburn to be taken to jail
in Bellefonte, Fietta, the one charged
with the crime, remarked that when she
reached Bellefonte she would hunt up a
relative and make that her stopping
place. The Centre Reporter remarks
that 1t was evident that the young wo-
man could not comprehend that she was
in the grasp of the law and no longer at
liberty. Her arrest appeared to her as
nothing more than a trip to Bellefonte
for some purpose, and that when she got
there she would have the opportunity of
visiting und staying with relations.
Under arrest for the killing of her fa-
ther-in-law, she was nnable to under-
stand her real situation.
Andrew Weaver, the husband of
Fietta, is an industrious and hardwork-
ing person, and was in no way connect.
ed with the quarrels which led to the
homicide. On the morning when
the old man was stabbed he was away
from home at work, but he seems to be so
ignorant as net to be able to comprehend
the serious nature of the situation in
which his wife and mother-in-law are
in. He recently visited them in jail,
and afterwards told an acqua'ntance
that he had tried to prevail upon Fietta
to make a confession of her having com-
mitted the deed and if she did so, all |
would be over, and then she could
return home where she was so much
wanted ; that he was tired of keeping
house alone and could not get along
much longer if she did not return. The
actions and expressions of these people ;
indicate un most deplorable condition of |

place, is expected to take charge of the

ration performed about ten days ago tor

Some one has said: A man is
happiest when he can forget all the
mean things he knows about himself.
And there are fellows who, when they
have forgotten this much,would have but
little else to remember.
—— Postmaster Feidler, after his her-
culean efforts to defeat the re-election of
Poor Overseer Schofield, has gone to
Washington, to get some pointers, from
‘Squire Rankin and John A. Daley, on
how to run local politics.

on the Lewisburg railroad, had his arm
badly crushed while coupling cars on

home in this place ad we are glad to
know is rapidly improving, with every
prospect of saving the injured arm.
—Some places are terribly sleepy.
It took a Justice of the peace, a consta-
ble, two merchants, a hilarious young
tough, a lot of Hungarians and a big
black bottle to waken up Tyrone the
other night, and its as quite already as if
no awakening-up had been given it.
——A most interesting letter will be
found in this issue of the Warcmmaw

side papers will furnish you in a year.

——>So far the ground-hog has the
lead as a reliable weather prophet, but
it will be a race for reputation between
him and St. Mathias for the balance of
the season. The ground hog points to
an early, warm,spring, St. Mathias, to a
blustering, freezing stretch of six weeks,
or else there is nothing in the old saw.
“When St. Mathias comes and finds no ice,
He goes to work and makes it;
And on the other hand, if ice,
He goes to work and breaks it.”
Mr. Cooper, who has been super-
intendent of the Electric Light Compa-
pany, of this place for the past two
years, has resinged his position, to ac-
cept the management of a new plant,
now being erected near Philadelphia.
I: loosing Mr. Cooper the company
iooses an intelligent and popular mana-
ger, and our town a highly respected
and honorable citizen.
Those in this section who used to
know Rev. Ira C. Mitchell when he
was a resident of these parts, who is
now a clergyman in Ohio, may be in-
terested in the following article taken
from the Wellsboro, W. Va., Pan-
Handle News, of Feb. 14: «Rev. Ira
C. Mitchell left yesterday, with his
family, for an enlarged field of labor
with the church at Mansfield, Ohio.
Few men have gone from this commu-
nity who ranked with him in force,
eloquence and ability, either as minis-
ter or attorney. Socially, he was a
most companionable man; pleasant
and facinating in conversation, deep,
keen and logical whether in or out of
the pulpit, and with a wide scope of
general knowledge rarely met with in
professional men. Although having |
come in contact with the people both
as pastor and lawyer, yet he leaves be-
hind him not one with an unkind feel-
ing, and takes.with him only their love,
regard and good wishes. His noble
wife and her bright, pleasant daughters
will be sadly missed by all who had
the pleasure of their acquaintance and |
who ‘knew them but to love them.’ |
—— When words fail it is a touching |
thing to witnes the expressive acts of a
people striving to suggest their
tender sympathy for the loss of a loved
one. Such a fitting tribute occasioned
by the last sleep of Jennie M. Short- |
lidge, was displayed in our midst this
week. A church crowded with earnest
sympathizers, an atmosphere sweet with
the perfume of flowers—a beautiful ex-
pression of love from her many friends—
Among these delicate offerings was an
exquisite wreath, compesed largely of
pink rosebuds, her favorite flower, to-
gether with carnations, lilies-of-the-val-
ley and marguerites, from her friends in
the office of the Centre Iron Company ;
A pillow of forget-me-nots and lillies
from Mrs. Nolan; A lyre of roses and
hyacinths from Mrs. D. H. Hastings;
A crescent from the members of the Y.
W.C. T. U. and from her Sunday
School class, a bunch of six calla lilies
of which the most beautiful one just un-
folding in all its purity was drooping
and fading on its broken stem. Very
touching indeed were the remarks of
Rev. Dr. Laurie, comparing her life, cut
off in lifes early Summer, to the broken
lilly,but differing in that it would unfold
and bloum in the sunshine of His pres-
ence, while the lily could never revive.

ing but the most searching investiga-
tion will disclose the perpetrator. The
only facts connected with the case, that
are as yet known for a certainty, are,
that the entire family consisting of the
murdered man, the three now in jail
and the two children, were an ignorant
doless, quarrelsome set; that the old man
was murdered and that the murder was
committed by one or more of the persons
who will have the hearing to-day. Cir-
cumstances, as we have said, point to
Fietta, as the one committing the deed
but she says, her brother Jonathan did
it and he says she did it, and the moth-
er of the two has so many stories about
it that the truth is, no one outside of
themselves, know who did it or why it
was done.
T. P. Bysour 1n Luor —The
Houtzdale Advance of the 21st inst.,
contains the following: One day this
week Mrs. Plummer showed us a sam-
ple of coal which was taken from the
opening at Muddy Run in which she is
interested. It is the Moshanon vein
and of as fine a quality and free from
impurities as any coal we have ever
seen. The opening is in about 80 feet
under ground and the coal is 3 feet 8
inches thick. The mine is owned by
Mrs. A. M. Plummer, D. D. Jones and
T. P. Rynder and they certainly have a
John Olewine died at her residence on
Willow Bank street, this place, last
Saturday evening, of consumption.
Her death was not unexpected as she
had been ina very low condition from
that dread disease, for some time pre-
vious to her death; yet her passing
away from her friends, although looked
for as the inevitable result of her dis-
ease, was a sad stroke to those whose
affections had been won by this excel-
lent woman, who in therelations of wite,
mother and friend had bcundthem to her
by the strongest ties. Her maiden name
was Christina Gummo, she having been
married to Mr. Olewine on September
28th 1882 and was aged 30 years and 19
days at the time of her death. She
leaves one child—a little girl—besides a
husband to whom her death is a sad

skeletons which were viewed by hun-
dreds of excited persons, and the rumors
as to the fate of the former owners of
the bones were many and varied. One
terrified old lady was sure she heard
screams and groans one dark night, pro-
ceeding from the coal shed and was
positive that there was bloody work go-
ing on, and wanted her husband to go
and see, but he refused to arise from his
warm bed on a cold night to disturb a
cat fight, as he pronounced the noise.
Another excited individual claimed
that he saw two men drive down Second
street like fury and stop opposite the
coal shed and carry something in and
then drive off again. But the matter
was finally set at rest by Dr. H. B.

«nd had place them in the shed tempor-

will add to it without to much coaxing,
sufficient to enable the erection of a neat
little church.

list, that waste a great deal of time and
space blowing their own horns. If they
would devote part of the time they take
to write themselves up, in looking around
for and preparing news for their col

them to be eternally and everlast-
ingly telling the public how enterpris-

If they were worth half as much as they

would know and recognize it, without
being reminded of the fact a half a doz-

satisfaction of knowing that he and his,
