He cut open the craw, took out the corn

A party of venturesome young
ladies from DuBois propose to start
from that place on May 1st and walk
to Renovo, a distance of 73 miles. This
is a novel undertaking, and requires
considerable courage, but the young
ladies claim to possess it.
——The box factory at Millmont, on
the Bellefonte and Lewisburg railroad,
was destroyed by fire some days ago,
involving a loss of about $7000 to its
owners, Smith & Cauley, on which
there was an insurance of $3500. It is
likely that it will be rebuilt.
The recent sudden death of Mr.
Wm. Armstrong, of Potters’ Mills, oc-
curred at Lemont while on a visit to
his son, the landlord at that place.
When he arrived at Lemont he was ap-
parently in ‘good health, but he was soon
after taken with a stroke of paralysis
which terminated fatally. He was over
80 years of age.
The jury appointed by the Hunt-
ingdon county court, and consisting of
Centre county men, to assess damages
sustained by ex Sheriff Thomas K. Hen-
derson at Union Furnace, by the taking
of his lands for straightening the
tracks of the Pennsylvania Railroad,
have awarded him $3,000, which is $12,-
000 less than he claimed.
Those who engage in illegal fish-
ing should bear in mind that by the Act
of Assembly of May 22, 1889, all kinds
of net and seine fishing, including out-
lines, are prohibited under a penalty of
$100, or three months imprisonment, or
both, with the forfeiture of boats, nets
and all appliances. The only legal way
of taking game fish is by hook, line and
rod, except eels, which may ba caught

Mirror says: A Hungarian was
brought to this city and removed to the
hospital for treatment to his head and spi-
nal column which he injured at Belle-
fontesome days ago,by falling off a struc-
ture twenty-two feet high. He seems to
be in a very distressed condition but re-
lief will be given as soon as possible.
A Bic BLow ABouT BASEBALL.—It
is about settled, says tue Democrat, that
Lock Haven is to have a first class base
ball club, as almost enough money has
been already secured for that purpose,
and it is supposed that the balance of the
amount needed will be raised to-day.
Base ball grounds have been secured on
the avenue above Hipple’s planing mill
and work on them will be commenced
at once. As soon as the Lock Haven
club gets fully started and has had a lit-
tle practice, the Williamsport, Renovo,
Bellefonte, and clubs from other towns,
can come here and learn how to play
base ball, while having the spots knock-
ed off of them in every game. Do you
hear, you base ball fellows all around
THEIR FIrsT ASSEMBLY.— The Seni-
or Class of the Pennsylvania State Col-
lege Inaugurates Dancing at that In-
stitution with a Grand Assembly at the
New Armory.— After having for a long’
ti me denied the privilege of dancing to
the students, the trustees of the College,
at their last meeting in January, recon-
sidered the matter and upon petition of
the senior class granted it the right to
direct three hops a yearat the college,
one of which to be given each term.
Owing to the uncompleted condition of
the armory it was found impossible to
give the first assembly at any time dur-
ing lastterm, so it was postponed and
the dance of last Friday night was the
fulfillment of the students’ hopes that
had been growing for several years.
The new armory, the building in
which the assembly was given, 1s a
whi te sandstone ard brick structure, 160
by 80 feet, and a more desireble place
for a dance can not be found. To the
right, upon entering, was the ladies’ re-
ception rooms in which everything was
most conveniently arranged. The gen-
tlemen left their hats and coats in Lieut.
Wolf's, the commandant’s, office where
everything was taken care of except “J.
I. T.’s hat with a little buckle on the
Upon entering the drill room the ap-
pearance was striking. Without any
pretence of decorations, except a few
navy blue and white bows—college col-
ors—by which the traveling rings were
artistically drawn together, it presented
a sight which is rarely seen in this vi-
cinity. Painted in shrimp pink, ‘olive
and buff, with the roof trusses in pale
blue, and a floor which was waxed un-
til it.reflected the brilliant rays of the
hundred or more electric lights, the hall
certainly looked handsome. The pa-
tronesses, Mrs. Geo. W. Atherton, Mrs.
Jas. Y. McKee, Mrs. G. C. Pond, Miss
H.A. McElwain, Mrs. Wm. Buckhout,
Mrs. L. E. Reber, Mrs. S. A. Wolf,
Mrs. J. J. Jackson, Mrs. J. S. Mitchell
and Mrs. Jno. A. Heston, received in
their most graceful manner and exerted
every effort to make the occasion one
long to be remembered by both students
Dancing was commenced soon after
eight and continued with but one inter-
mission until one. The music furnished
by Stopper & Fiske’s orchestra, of Wil-
liamsport, consisting of ten pieces, un-
der the direction of Prof. Steubgen,
was “divine,” according to the lady
dancers, and ‘‘of a yery superior order,”
according to several critics who at-
tended for the sole purpose of hearing it.
The acoustic properties of the hall could
not be better, as the dreamy strains of
“auf weider seben’® were distinctly
heard in every part of it.
At one time there were one hundred
and fifty couples dancing the lancers,
and as they all shassayed in the last
figure they presented a view to the spec-
tators in the gallery which is seldom
equalled for gayety and splendor.
With the first warning of “lights”
the people began to realize that the time
for departure was near, and when the
strains of the last waltz floated out over
the hall every body seemed to breath a
sigh of regret that the end of such an
enjoyable event had come so soon.
Among the guests from a distance
were Miss Allen, Paterson, N. J.; Miss
Jessie Hilton, Washington, D. C. ; Miss
Calloway, Baltimore; Miss Catherine
Gossler, Columbia, Pa.; Miss May Hess,
Lock Haven; Misses Hoover and
Barnes, Philipsburg; Miss Kapp, Al-
toona; Miss Peggy Petriken and” Joe-
seph Rhoades, Huntingdon; Mrs. Dr.
Smith, Misses Maude Patterson and Ef-
fie Hamilton, Messrs. Horace and Lew-
is Blair, Charley Witter, Gerald Hoov-
er and Charley Morris, Tyrone ; Misses
Snyder, Pomeroy and Leyden, Beech
Creek; Capt. C. W. Roberts, Mrs.
Roberts, Miss Gussie Roberts and Miss
McFarland, West Chester. Many
Bellefonte society people were up in- a
special train over the B. B. R. and B. C.
If the assembly of Friday night was
a criterion of what their future ones will
be, we are of the opinion that the col-
lege boys will have to put an addition
to the armory so that their friends can be
accommodated. However this may be,
the assembly was an honor to the insti-
tution, a credit to the class of 90, and
an event whose success is due largely to
Harry Leyden, Fred Bryan, Will P.
Brew, Jas. C. Mock and Phil Gossler,
the class committee.
The game that was to come off on
Wednesday between the Altoona and
State College baseball clubs on the
the grounds of the latter, was can-

— Miss Dot Johnston, a young col-
ored lady, of Lock Haven, and Mr.

with the object of getting married.
— Another weather prophet has ap-
peared upon the scene. This time he is
Randall T. Malin, of Ridgway township,
Elk county, and is said to be 88 years of
age, straight as an arrow and spry as a
kitten. He foretold to a day the late
cyclones in the South and West, and al-
so the recent forest fires. He is indeed
a wonderful old man and to listen to
him is quite a treat. So says the Elk
——The remains of the late Dr. W.
E. Hall were buried on Sunday in
Fairview cemetery, at Renovo, the fu-
neral being largely attended. The body
was first taken to Trinity church on
Third street, Renovo, where the burial
service of the Episcopal church was
said over it, after which it was convey-
ed to the special train in waiting. Not-
withstanding the rain, not less than 500.
people were in attendance.
——Among the many visitors to town
this week, who came, some to attend
Court because they had to, others to
look on because they wanted to, and
still others in whose bonnets the official
bee is beginning to buzz, was W. Gay-
ler Morrison, esq., of Philipsburg, who,
if indications do not belie him, can'prop-
erly be placed in the latter class. Mr.
Morrison, we understand, is seriously
considering the propriety of again be-
coming a candidate for Recorder.
— The farmer is advised to keep his
eye on the ‘stump man who goes
around the country buying up walnut
or other stumps at the rate of one dollar
apiece, but when he comes to pay fof
them finds that he has nothing less than
a $10 bill. This he hands to the far-
mer and receives $9 in change, if only
one stump has been purchased. Then
he skedaddles as fast as possible and gets
out of reach. When the farmer at-
tempts to pass the $10 bill he finds that
it is counterteit.
In mentioning the coal de-
velopment of the Philipsburg re-
gion, the Ledger, of that place,
says: The grading of the railroad
from old Loch Lomond, on the
Morrisdale branch of the T. &. C. R. R,
to Cold Stream Dam, is almost complet-
ed. The dumps and tipple are nearly
ready, and when the track is laid, an-
other coal operation will be adding its
output to the stream of coal that is
pouring over the mountain to Tyrone
——C. C. Seeley, Esq., the popular,
wide awake editor of the Jersey Shore
Herald, found time on Friday last torun
up to Bellefonte to see how the
place has grown since he used to stump
his toes snd get stone bruises on his heels
when a bare-footed boy, running our
streets. We are sorry we - were not at
home when Mr S. called, but are glad
to learn from the papers that he got
home safely, and has concluded to be-
come a candidate for the Legislature, a
position he is eminently qualified to fill
and which the Democracy of western
Lycoming could not dobetter than ten-
der him unanimously.
——1In view ot the fact that the Fifth
Pennsylvania Reserves will have a re-
union in Columbia, Lancaster county,
on the 14th of May, at which Governor
Curtin is to be present, the Independent
of that borough recalls the incident of
Curtin’s promise that ‘the bones of
every soldier from this State, who died
in the service, should be brought home
and be buried in Pennsylvania soil, and
the widow and orphans of every Penn-
sylvania soldier should be cared for and
educated by the State. This promise
was redeemed to the letter. In no na-
tional cemetery in the South is there a
known Pennsyvania soldier’s grave, and
in the case of the soldier’s widows and
soldier’s orphans Pennsylvania has ‘led !
every other State. It was also Govern-
or Curtin’s boast that no soldier’s letter
to him, however unimportant, was un- |
THE LAIRDSVILLE MYSTERY.—It is
learned from Lairdsville to-day, says
the Williamsport Republican of Mon-
day, that several detectives have visited
the scene of last week’s fire with a view
to obtaining a clue to the possible mur-
derer of old man Crouse, who was at
first thought to have burned to death.
The opinion grows that he was the vic-
tim of foul play and the fact that his
brother has offered a reward of $1,000
for information that will lead to the ar-
rest and conviction of the murderer may
result in the discovery of something
startling within the next few days.
Suspicion is at present directed to-
ward a man who has been a resident of
Lairdsville for about a year, and who
left the place early on the morning of
the fire, and while there may be noth-
ing in the fact that he left town so sud-
denly and returned in the evening,
many are of the belief that his going
away at that time was for the purpose
of secreting money which he secured af-
ter murdering Hiram Crouse and firing
THE LATE DR. HALL.—The Renovo
News, speaking of the late Dr. William
E. Hall, of that place, whose recent
death at Fortress Monroe, Va., is men-
tioned elsewhere in this issue, says that
he was born at Milesburg, ‘this county,
in 1841. He studied medicine with Dr.
‘Butler, at East Freedom, Blair county,
and was graduated at Jefferson Medical
College in 1867. Previous to this he
served in the Fifty-fourth Pennsylvania
regiment during the Rebellion, acting
as assistant to the the surgeon of regi-
ment. In 1869 he located as a physi-
cian at St. Mary’s, but later in the same
year went to Renovo where he es-
tablished a drug store and practic-
ed his profession with great suc-
cess. His marriage to Miss Anna
Kephart took place in 1864. He was at
Fortress Monroe, in company with his
brother, Hon. J. K. P. Hall and the
latter's wife, when death overtook him.
The party had spent the previous
month in Florida, where he had gone
for the benefit of his health, and were
on their way home.
G. A. R. Post INsPECTION.—The an-
nual inspection of Posts in the De-
partments of Pennsylvania, G. A. R.,
for 1890, will be made under the super-
vision of Abraham Levering, deparment
inspector, of Philadelphia.
The following persons have been
designated for district No 31, James H.
Rankin, of Post No 95, as Assistant In-
spector at Large. The following are his
assistants : J. C. P. Jones,of 261 ;D. W.
Miller, of 272; Rev. Owen Hicks, of
298 ; P. H. Sellers, of 419; W. C. Van-
Valin, of263; Geo. M. Boal, of 282;
and Wm. Singer, of 302.
— CHILD, DROWNED.—A little five-
year-old son of Harry and Sallie Bell-
man, of Selinsgrove, who were visiting
Mrs. Bellman’s mother in Millheim,
was drowned in Elk creek, just a short
distance from the house of his grandpar-
ents, one day last week. The little fellow
strayed off and in attempting to cross
the creek on a footlog fell into the wa-
ter and was carried down stream. The
body was recovered.
LArGE TrEEs.—The Renovo News
says that 0. W. Wolfcut a tree on Shin-
gle Branch last Saturday that measured
eight 16 foot logs, which scaled 6004 feet
of lumber. He cut one last month which
was eight 16 foot and one 12 foot logs,
which scaled 5500 feet. Lumbermen of
experience say that these are the largest
trees ever cut in Pennsylvania. They
are monstrous big, straight from the
ground up with no forks or large branch-
es, as such trees usuall have.
— Mr. Norman M. Hoover, of Lit-
tle Rock, Arkansas, whose death was
briefly mentioned in the WATCHMAN of
last week, was the eldest son of the late
Col. John T. Hoover, of this place.
Mr. Hoover read law and was admitted
to the bar of Bellefonte, after which he
went south, locating in Little Rock
some eighteen or twenty years since, and
engaged in the real-estate business.
The many readers of this paper who
knew him personally, and admired him
for his sterling worth, will join with
his aged mother and brothers and sisters,
who still reside here, in mourning the
loss of one who had the promise of a
long and useful life, and whose every
act proved him to be one of God’s noble-
men. In speaking of his death the Lit-
tle Rock Democrat says: “In the
death of N. M. Hoover, which took
place at his residence in East End last
evening, the community loses a valua-
ble citizen and his wife and children a
kind, indulgent husband and father.
The deceased had been a citizen or Lit-
tle Rock for a number of years, and bad
been connected with George H. Meade
since 1882. He was a member of Capi.
tal Lodge, A. O. U. W., and has a large
circle of friends who sincerely regret his

Court ProcEEDINGS.—The Apri]
term of the Centre county court com-
menced last Monday morning at 10
o'clock. Frank McCoy was chosen
as foreman of the grand jury, and
Judge Furst gave the jury instructions
in regard to the bill that would be
brought before it concerning the Weav-
er murder case. The constables then
made their customary returns. The
trial of the criminal cases was commenc-
ed in the afternoon, as follows :
Com, vs. Peter Ashcroft. The defen-
dant wasa landlord doing business in
Philipsburg and a bill was found against
him for selling liquor, some time last
November, to persons of intemperate
habits. The jury found him guilty and
he was sentenced to pay a fine of $300,
costs of prosecution and undergo an im-
prisonment of 60 days in county jail.
His application for license, which had
been pending, was rejected.
Com. vs. John Burket.—The defen-
dant was from the neighborhood of
Philipsburg and was charged with sell-
ing liquor without license. He is a very
ignorant person and. unable to speak the
English language. It was proved that
he had sold liquor to a number of persons
he having no license to do business of
that kind, and the only defence set up
for him was that he was too ignorant
to know that he was violating the law.
This would not exonerate him, the jury
finding him guilty, and he was sentenc-
ed to pay a fine of $500, costs, and under-
go imprisonment in jail for three
Com. vs. Maggie Spiece.—The de-
fendant was from Philipsburg and was
charged with stealing articles of cloth-
ing from her employer John Irvin, in
whose family she was a domestic. She
pleaded guilty and submitted to the
mercy of the court.
Com. vs. W. F. Richards.—False pre-
tense. The prosecution was brought by
0. C. Marks on the charge that the de-
fendant had obtained a team of horses
from him by false representations. The
evidence showed that Richards purchas-
ed the horses, givingin payment a judg-
ment on a piece of land which he repre-
sented to be unincumbered, but which-
afterwards proved to have judgments on
it for more than its worth. The testi-
mony in the case was conflicting, and
the jury brought in a verdict of not
guilty, and divided the costs between
the prosecutor and defendant.
Com. vs. John McKinney.—The
charge against the defendant was assault
and battery and carrying concealed
weapons. McKinney was a scholar of
one of the Philipsburg schools and some
time in March Prof. Richey, Superin-
tendent of the schools, attempted to cor-
rect him for misconduct. He testified
that defendant, when about being sub-
jected to punishment, drew a revolver,
and, with the remark “Now, d—n you,
I defy you to touch me,” pointed it at
him. McKinley, in his own defence,
testified that he did now draw a revel-
ver and did not have one, and that what
the Professor mistook for a pistol was a
small book, which was produced in
court. Other witnesses testified that
they never knew him to carry a revol-
ver: The jury broughtin a verdict of
guilty, but recommended the defendant
to the mercy of the court.
Com. vs. John L. Croft.—The defen-
dant is road supervisor in Boggs town-
ship, and the prosecution, brought by
Benjamin Walker, charged the defend-
ant with not keeping the public road
from Snow Shoe to Snow Shoe Intersec-
tion, within the limits of Boggs town-
ship, in proper repair. After a thorough
trial of the merits of the case the jury
brought in a verdict of not guilty and
divided the costs, amounting to about
$100 apiece, between the prosecutor and
Com. vs. John B. Veidheofer.—
Assault and battery and aggravated as-
sault and battery. This was the stab-
bing case that occurred last winter
near Moshannon in which John Force
received dangerous wounds. The
bill was ignored and the costs put on

THE WEAVER MURDER CASE.
On Thursday morning the prosecu-
tion against Fietta Weaver, charged
with the murder of Andrew Weaver, sr.,
was commecned, the grand jury having
found a true bill. The particulars of
the offence, which happened 1n Penn '
township, on the 28th of last January,
have been fully given in our columns,
W. E. Gray, esq., assisted by John G.
Love, esq., appeared for the defendant,
who pleaded “‘not guilty’’ to the indict-
ment for murder. District Attorney
Meyer represented the commonwealth.
After a large number of the panel of
jurymen were rejected, the following
jurors were chosen as competent to try
the case :
Chirst Haverly, Centre township ;
Samuel Irvin, Ferguson; D. Poulson,
Howard borough; L. H. Musser, Walk-
er; George Fink, Huston ; John D.
Brown ; Snow Shoe township; Elmer
Vaugn, Worth; John F. Schenck,
Howard township; D. A. Dietrick
‘Walker, Wm. Brooks, Boggs ; Jacob
Stine, Walker ; H. H. Schroyer, Belle-
The examination of witnesses on the
part of the prosecution was in progress
when we went to press, but not suffi-
cient to be of inlerest to our read-
ers. The substance of the evidence
will be given next week.
