—Mr. Carnegie has just donated to
the Library of the Pennsylvania State
College a work of exceptional im-
portance and interest. It is entitled
“Tacsimiles of the Manuscripts Re-
in the Archives of England, France,
Holland and Spain.” The cost of
the series which contains 100 volumes,
is $2,000, and it will take ten years to
complete the series, Only 200 copies of
the work are to be printed, and the nega-
tives are destroyed as soon as each vol-
ame is printed.
The importance of this publication
will be appreciated when it is under-
stood that it is a catalogue of the docnu-
ments relating tothe Revolutionary War
now remaining in foreign archives, with
exact photographic facsimiles. A state
paper often exists in more than one
form and frequently in several collec-
tions. The original may be found, for
instance, at London, while copies of it,
perhaps in cipher, may be discovered at
Paris, or at the Hague, or in Spain, hav-
ing been sent thither by an embassador
or secret azent Each copy was prepar-
ed for a special purpose, to accomplish
a certain end. Whether that end was
or was not attained, the means by which
its object was effected, or the causes
which prevented the expected resulis,
are often shown by memoranda and en-
dorsements made upon it by the pnblic
minister through whose hands it has
passed. These memoranda and endorse-
ments are often of the same historical
valueas the paper itself, and enhance
its value correspondingly. It 1s, of
course, impossible to bring them all to-
gether, but Benjamin Franklin Stevens,
the author of this stupendous undertak-
ing, proposes to give American scholars
an opportunity to see photographic cop-
ies of many of the original documehts
pertaining to the Revolution.
The importance of these fac-simile re-
productions will be further seen when it
is remembered that many of these manu-
scripts in foreign archives are in a de-
caying condition and are already almost
illegible. Again, no facilities exist in
this country for consulting the original
The State College is to be heartily
congratulated on this magnificent addi-
tion to its Library.
Central Pennsylvania Conference in
session at Carlisle last week, Presiding
Elder Hamlin made the following report
concerning the district over which he
presides :
In the work of church building and
improvement, the enterprise and zeal of
our people have suffered no abatement.
A willingness to contribute liberally to
these purposes is everywhere manifest-
ed. During the year five new churches
have been dedicated. Gray’s church in
Half Moon charge, a beautiful brick edi-
fice costing about $4,000, was dedicated
early in the year. At Lemont, in Pine
Grove charge, there now stands as a
monument to the liberality of the small
membership at that place an elegant lit-
tle church, erected at a cost of about
$2,000. It was dedicated December 15
with all indebtedness provided for At
Bania, Ramey charge, the church, the
foundations of which were laid last year,
has been finished at a cost of about
$3,000, only a light indebtedness remain-
ing. It was dedicated in August, the Rev.
G. D. Penepacker and the Rev. M. L.
Ganoe officiating, to whom for services
on that occasion rendered, we are great-
ly indebted. At a cost of abour $1,200
has been erezted at Madera, Glen Hope
charge, a comfortable little church. It
was dedicated free of debt by Rev. Dr.
Reed, president of Dickinson college,
whose visit to this growing town was a
great blessing and will be long and
gratefully remembered.
Many of the churches in the district
have been greatly improved, notably
the church at Bellefonte. Of the ex-
pense incident to this costly improve-
ment $1,775 has been collected and paid
this year. The reopening services were
intensely interesting, Dr. Reed, of Car-
lisle, preaching on the occasion twa elo-
quent and appropriate sermons,
The churea at Centre, Howard circuit,
has also been enlarged and improved at
a cost of $735. It was reopened by Dr.
Gray, of Dickinson seminary, through
whose skillful and vigorous manage-
ment the whole indebtedness was pro-
vided for.
The church at Birmingham charge
has also been improved and made beau-
tiful, at a cost of $650, all of which has
been paid. Ata considerable cost sev-
eral other churches have been improved.
The whole amount collected and paid
on church improvement during the year
will aggregate $5,000.
About $1,500 have been expended in
the improvement of parsonage property:
A parsonage costing $950 has been pur-
chased at Spring Mills, a central location
of Penns Valley circuit. At Tyrone al-
go a comfortable parsonage, well located,
has been purchased at a cost of $4,500.
The following missionary collections
were made in this county during the
past year in different Methodist charges :
Bellefonte, $400, Half Moon, $257;
Howard, $7 } ; Milesburg and Unionville,
| $67 ; Penns Valley, $123; Philipsburg,
' $980; Snow Shoe, $81.

Wednesday, he being on a visit to
Bellefonte from his present place of re-
sidence, Philadelphia.
——Myr. Dorsey J. Gingery, a promis-
ing young merchant and Democrat of

——The lady members of the Y. M
C. A. gymaysium having been at con-
siderable expense in furnishing curtains,
and having other articles to purchase,
have decided to charge all lady visitors,
who are not members, the small sum of
five cents admittance, which will be
placed in the furnishing fund.
——Owing to a change in tecritory J.
A. Woodcock, district agent of the
Mutual Life Insurance Company of
N. Y., will locate in Williamsport,
Penn., it being a more central point
for his business, besides affording an
opportunity for his son Jay to attend
Dickinson Seminary which is located
in that city. Mr. James McKee has
leased Mr, Woodcock’s home on Kast
Linn street and will occupy it about
the 10th of April. ay
——DLast Friday morning Alfred
Davis, the man who had been arrested
on suspicion of being one of the parties
that robbed Budinger’s store at Snow
Shoe, had a bearing, before Judge
Furst. Testimony was given by half a
dozen witnesses, making a rather strong
case against him. Two revolvers that
were stolen from the store were found
in the garret of his house, and also a box
of men’s caps. A Pinkerton detective
from Philadelphia, named Day, had
been set on his track, and developed the
facts against him. This same detective
was the one who entrapped ‘Red-nosed
Mike.” In default of $1000 bail Davis
was remanded to jail to await] his trial.
FIrE oN BisHor STREET.— Last Sun-
day evening about half pasteight o’clock
fire was discovered breaking out of
the roof of the residence of Mr. Vincent
Bauer on Bishop street. Although the
alarm was immediately given and the
ever alert firemen was on the ground as
soon as possible, the fire burst forth in
great! volume and made a big smoke, the
building being an old frame and very
combustible. At one time it looked as
if the whole block would be involved,
but by great exertion the fire was con-
fined to the house where it originated,the
upper part of which was badly burned
out, and the lower part much damaged
by the water used in extinguishing the
flames. The house was occupied by
Mr. Bauer and Ollie Miller. The fur-
niture of the former was much injured,
but Mr. Miller saved most of his. The
loss of the former on house and furni-
ture was about $3000, on which there is
$2100 insurance. Miller had no in-
As the fire progressed and the energies
of the brave fire boys waned in their en-
deavors to save property at the risk of
life or threatened disease from wet and
frozen clothing, where, oh, where! was
the inspiring and resuscitating coffee
cart! Can it be possible that our coura-
geous temperance association is becom-
ing disheartened ir the good work, or
were they so ®xhausted from overwork
in their attempt to control the action of
the court?
—The memorial Methodist church and
chapel, built at Lewisburg "by Thomas
Beaver, as a memorial to his father, Rev.

TY.— Wm. G. Newberry died in Lock
Haven last Saturday morning, the cause
of his death being supposed to be injur-
ies received from blows struck by
Charles Mosher on Thursday night at
Leman’s hotel. There were a number
of bruises on his head and on his body,
and Saturday morning blood and water
are said to have ran out of his mouth.
The deceased complained of sickness and |
headache early in the morning, and did
notget up, and in the afwernoon Dr.
Hayes was sent for, made an examina-
tion and left a prescription, The family
did not anticipate a serious result, but
death’s coming was swift and sudden. '
Deceased was an old soldier, about 57
years of age, and a member of the G. A.
R. Mrs. John Whiteman, of Milesburg, |
was one of his children. A coroner's in-
quest was held on Saturday afternoon,
and Charles Mosher, the party charged
with inflicting the injury, has been ar-
We have since learned that the cor.
oner’s jury found that Newberry came
to his death from apoplexy superinduced
by injuries to his brain caused by blows
received from the said Mosher.
knocked down the first time Newberry’s
head struck on the stove, whereby a
severe hurt was received on the left side,
under which the doctors found clotted
blood on the brain, about half an ounce,
On the second knock down he fell on |
the back of his head, striking the floor
with full force, receiving an injury near
the top of the head, on the right side
of the dividing line, which produced
three and a half ounces of blood ong the
brain. These clots the physicians, Drs.
Walls and Hays, who made the post
mortem, say produced the apoplexy
from which death resulted.
—The wedding of Mr. J. Miles Kepheart
ard Mrs. Emma Graham Wakefield,
which was consummated at the residence
of Wm. F. Reber, esq.,on High street, on
Tuesday afternoon last, at four o'clock,
was one of the quietest yet happiest eventg
that has transpired in Bellefonte for a
long time.
This union was somewhat romantic
in that Mr. and Mrs. Kepheart were
lovers before the war. Unforeseen cir-
cumstances having separated them then,
she married Mr. Wakefield of Lewis-
town, at that time Recorder of Miftljn
Mrs. Kepheart has been confined to
her bed all winter by nervous prostra-
tion, but was able to be up while the
Rev. Dr. Laurie conducted the services
which made her the bride of one to
whom she had plighted her troth years
ago. :
The groom, a resident of Fleming,
Pa., is one of the most intelligent men
in this community and served as a com-
missary during -the war with honor to
himself and his country. Miles is a
whole souled, generous fellow, and will
make one of the best of husbands. His
brideis a sister of Mrs. Butts, and an
aunt of Mrs. Wm JF. Reber of thi
place, and is a lady of refinement and
On account ofthe physical condition
of Mrs. Kepheart, the ceremony was
celebrated with less pomp than would
have attended it had everything per-
mitted but from the expression of the
groom’s face when we saw him we knew
thateven if there was not the usual splen-
dor of such an occasion, there was the
greatest of joy. ?
‘We bespeak for Mr.and Mrs. Kep-
heart a long life of wedded happiness.
MENT.—The closing of Prof. Morrison’s
second term as teacher of the South
Philipsburg grammar school on the
19th inst., was attended with an enter-
tainment in the evening which had many
pleasant features and was a great suc-
cess in every way. Although the ad-
mission charged was merely nominal a

theatre by the erection of a temporary
stage, on which the actors and actresses
rendered a program with such excellence
as to hold the attention, and please the
entire audience, and well repaid those
who had come from the neighboring
school districts to see and hear. The
program was large and well ren-
dered, and the scholars gave evidence
of the culture they have received from
Prof. Morrison.
The performance was followed by an
address from the Professor, who upon
its conclusion’ presented Misses Nellie
Batcheler and Nettie Bathgate, each
with a beautiful silver cup as rewards
for regular attendance and good con- |
duct. Nettie Bathgate, Della and Grace
Pearce and Grace Hazzard, each won
class prizes which were presented to
them, and then the Professor was the
subject of a little surprise when Prof.
McDonald in a short but very well
worded address presented him with a
valuable and useful Paul E. Wirt foun-
tain pen, a gift from his school. Tt
was evident that there was a mutually-
cordial feeling -between the teacher
and the scholars,

A BrinriaNtT House WEDDING. —
Bellefonte society has been set agog by
the brilliant wedding of Col. Jackson
- L. Spangler to Mrs. Lida Holiday, at
the home of the bride on the north-east
corner of the Diamond.
The nuptials were celebrated at seven
o'clock on last Tuesday evening, Rev.
| Houck, of the Methodist Episcopal
| church, officiating. The bride’s hand-
some attire of heliotrope silk and velvet,

of joy.
After the ceremony was performed a
