| A Case SETTLED.--The William-
| sport Sun and Banner of last Friday
-says : Sheriff Cooke, of Centre county,
| came down from Bellefonte this morn-
| ing to see our county officials about the
releasing of Ben Fulton, a member of
the Undine Hose Company, of Belle-
fonte; who celebrated a little too much
on the Fourth and got into the county
jail on the charge of taking some pro-
perty from his hotel proprietor. The
sheriff says that Ben never was guilty
of anything like that before, and hi®
friends feel that he ought to be released.
He couldn't stand the great crack and
whack of our big display of fireworks
without taking too much liquid refresh-
ments, and it was an unintentional
error. The sheriff stated that the pros-
ecutor was perfectly willing to settle the
case and let Mr. Fulton go home to his
family. The case wus settled this after-
Last Monday forenoon Howard McClel-
lan, a 23 year-old son of farmer Jo-
seph McClellan, living near Tussey-
ville, died from the effects of drinking
ice water while heated. He came off
the mow, where he had been receiving
sheaves from the wagon, and while
dripping with perspiration drank. about
a half-pint of ice-water. In a few min-
utes afterwards he fell over dead. He
was an exemplary young man. A
drink of whisky, under tke circum-
stances, would have been less injurious
to him than ice-water, but neither of
them should be used in harvest.
A peculiarly sad incident of this case
consisted in the circumstance that the
young man had intended to start for
school that morning, but, at the solicita-
tion of his father, who had been engag-
ed to dig a grave, he remained and as-
sisted in hauling in grain. His father
was in the graveyard when the news of
his son’s death was brought him,and the
shock was so great that the old gentle-
man was completely prostrated and it
was at first thought he would have to
be carried home.
correspondent of the Renovo Record,
writing from Shintown, Clinton county,
says: ‘About the year 1837, when Gov-
ernor Ritrer held the reins of the State
government, it appeared the proper
thing to build a canal from Philadelphia
to Erie, and to this end, sections vary-
ing in length were let to contractors, to
build along the Susquehanna, and else-
where. The money to pay these con-
tractors was furnished by the State, ard
in currency called shinplasters. The
Hon. Thaddeus Stevens was the State's
paymaster, and came from Harrisburg
every month to Shintown and other
places on horseback, carrying the money
in the old fashioned saddle bags to pay
off the contractors. He came so often
to the work, at or near the town now
called Shintown, that the name soon or-
iginated. ‘It is alsosaid, but we don’t
believe it, that Mr. Stevens was an ex-
pert poker player, and that when he
came to Shintown on Saturday night he
would win the money playing poker
and carry it back to Harrisburg.”
The facts in the above history may
be substantially correct, but there is
evidently a mistake in the statement
that Mr. Stevens got his money back by
the game of poker. That great Ameri-
can game had not yet been developed in
Ritner’s time. If old Thad relieved the
Shintowners of their money it was done
through the instrumentality of the more
venerable game of old sledge.

——Mr. James Milliken, of our town,
who travels a great deal, recently visit-
ed Dakota, looking after some valuable
mines in that region in whizh he is in-

“Mr. Milliken’s home is in Pennsylva-
nia, and be bas an intimate acquaintance
with the politicians and public men,
not only of his own state, but of the na-
tion, is deeply interested in public af-
fairs and a most interesting and fluent
conversationalist, He has sufficient
wealth to permit indulgence of his taste
for literature and politics, and as he has
no personal ambitions to gratify thor-
oughly enjoys it.”

and a population of 597. This township
has 30 soldiers and widows of soldiers,
still living in it. One of 1ts citizens,John
Shively, served four years and a halfin
the late war; was in 26 battles, never
received a wound and was not off duty
a single day during that time. After
he was discharged he served five years
in the regular army, and has since that
been quietly farming among the foot-

the Undine Hose company of this place

nor ever did, belong to the Undine Hose
company, and at the time of his arrest
was not wearing a uniform of said com-
pany, or inany other way connected.

——The DuBois Courier makes the
announcement thata “well-known Du-

that would be a safe bet. It would be hard
to find a Centre county friend of Gener-
al Hastings who would venture to take
that bet.
——Mr. Wilbur Harris, recently a
clerk in the Bellefonte post-office, has
secured a §J00 position in the census
bureau at Washington. As the census
work is going t. bean interminable
job, Wilbur may expect to have a long
tenure of office, but he won’t object, as
he has a keen scent for official snaps.

outlying suburb of Bellefonte, has be-
tween 300 and 400 inhabitants. If it

quite 8 formidable showing in the cen-
sus reports.

—We mentioned some weeks ago how
Mr. Michael Grove, of College
township, came near being swindled out
of a large amount of money by two ro-
guish adventurers who tried the three
card monte game on him and pretty
nearly succeeded. Scampsin this line
of business operate in the rural districts
all over the country and occasionally
pick up big prizes, The same rascals
who nearly victimized farmer Grove
may be operating in the western part of
the State, as a special from Beaver Falls
says that Joseph Shannon, a wealthy
farmer, aged 63 years, was swindle out
of $9,000 on Thursday by two sharpers.
The game piayed was the time-worn one
with cards. A man calling himself Har-
per and a confederate induced Shannon
to pick out a card and then told him he
had won $9,000, but before this money
would be paid over he must produce
that amount to prove that he could have
paid if he had lost. Shannon went to
the bank, drew the money, and returr-
ed with it. The sharpers then took the
cash from him ard skipped out. The
victimized farmer has offered $5,000 for
the apprehension of the two men. He
thinks he was mesmerized. The game
played in this case appears wonderfully
like the one that came very near mak-
ing Mr. Grove $3,000 short in his cash
As much complaint is heard of the
spread of Canada thistles in this section,
the following law on the subject should
be generally known:
“It shall be the duty of land owners
to prevent Canada thistles from going
to seed, and the seed of the same from
ripening. Penalty for neglect, a fine of
$15, one half to the County Treasurer,
and the other to the proceeding inform-
er. Parties (i. ey neighbors) aggri ved,
may give five days notice, and on con-
tinued neglect it shall be lawful for the
former to enter the premises and cut
down said thistles, or hire others to do
so, and such aggrieved persons so doing
may sue and recover {rom the landhold-
ers $2.00 per diem for so doing.”

College, died from the effects of a para—

eight o’clock. The deceased had been
confined to her bed since early in the
spring but her friends had strong hopes
of her recovery up to the time she had
the first stroke of paralysis, after that all
hope was despaired of. Mrs. Mitchell
was formerly Eliza IL. Thompson, a
daughter of Mr. William Thompson, of
Milroy and was sixty-one years old last
June. She was a woman of much cul-
ture and refinement and interested her-
self in charitable and church work,
Among the students of the college Mrs.
Mitchell was looked upon as a mother,
and her loss to them will cause a vacan-
cy which can never be filled. Her
sweet temper and kindly disposi-
tion caused all who met her to love her.
A husband, three sons and two daugh-
ters mourn the loss of a devoted wife
and loving mother.
——The death of Miss Margaret Pru-
ner, at her late home on east Spring St.,
on Thursday evening ‘last, was very sud-
den indeed, and a great shock to the
community. Miss Pruner was one of
the oldest and best known residents of
our town and with her death came sor-
row to many of Bellefonte’s poor
whom she was always careful to help.
The deceased was a daughter of Squire
David L. Pruner, well known in this
section, who died many years ago, and
a sister of Hon. Ed. Pruner of Tyrone,
She was sixty-three years of age at the
time of her death.
The funeral took place on Sunday
afternoon at four o’clock. Mr. Hauck, of
the Methodist Church, of which she was
a devout member, officiated, assisted by
Dr. Laurie and Rev. Miles Noll. Thre
pall-bearers were Jno. P. Harris, Capt.
Geo. Bayard, F. Crider, Jno. Meese,
Chas. Shuey and Wilbur Twitmyer.

and Miss Marion F. Hughes, the third

A Foorisu FEMALE FASTER. —Mack-
eyville has a woman who is making a
record of herself as a faster which prom-
ises to equal that of Tanner, if her
strength does not fail too soon. The
lady is Mrs. Daniel Snyder, who, with
her husband, resides in the prosperous
village of Mackeyville in Nittany Val-
ley. Mrs. Snyder commenced her fast
on Sunday, June 10th, consequently
yesterday was her thirty fourth day
since food passed her lips, so far as it is
known. During the thirty-four days
Mrs. Snyder positively refused to cat
food of any kind, and occasionly took a
little water. For the past five days not
even water has passed her lips and she
has become very much emaciated, being
reduced to a mere skeleton. No cause is
known for the woman’s singular action
in refusing to take food. She has no
disease and is apparently of sound mind.
Her condition at present is similar to
that of a person greatly reduced by fever
or other wasting disease and she is un-
alle to speak owing to her weakness.
About two years ago a Philadelphia
doctor performed an operation on Mrs.
Snyder for the removal of an ovari
tumor, but physicians say her rine
fast is no way a result of the operation.
This is said to be the third time she has
fasted for long periods of time, although
in neither of the previous instances did
ber fast continue so long. Mrs. Snyders
death is likely to result in a few days as
she is now thought by physicians to be
in too low a condition to revive.—ZLock
