who have figured up the census returns
of Centre county, as given out by Su-
perintendent Bricker several weeks ago,
which he represented as amounting to a
total of 51,450, say that the amount is
but 43,182, or 7,068less than his total,
and that the increase in population
since 1880 has been but 5,442 instead of
nearer correct than he is represented to
be, and that he hasn’t added to the list of
blunders connected with this census.
ander McMillan, who has lately been
staying between Eagleville and this
place, and who is a woodsman, came to
this city yesterday and during the even-
ing got full of bug-juice while running

that he clairred to know. This morn.
ing he found himself lying on the bank
of the canal, about 5 o’clock, minus
$135 in cash, a silver watch and a gold-
plated chain, and his suspicion is that
the man who fellowshiped with him
last night committed the robbery. He
is taking steps to if possible recover his
lost valuables.— Lock Haven Democrat.
Do the farmers and land owners of this
county know that there is a penalty of
$15 for allowing the Canada thistle to
seed upon their premises? From near-
ly every section of the county we hear
complaints of the spread of this weed.
For the information of those interested
we publish the law intended to obliter-
ate this great nuisance :
“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. e. neighbors) ageravated
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
80, and such aggrieved persons so doing
may sue and recover from the landhold-
ers $2.00 per diem for so doing.’
A Goop Work QUICKLY DoNE.—
They made short work of a cowardly
ruffian at Jersey Shore the other day.
A fellow of the name of Bill Sherman
attacked and knocked down a cripple
named Walter Oakes, after which he
walked across the street and threat-
ened to do the same thing for Thomas
H. Pursell, who knocked him down and
gave him the thrashing he richly mer-
ited. Sherman then made threats that
he would kill Pursell with an axe be-
fore morning. Two warrants were then
issued for the arrest of Sherman—one
for assault and battery on Oakes, and
the other for assault and threats to kill
Pursell. The ruffian resisted the con-
stable in making the arrest, but to the
lockup he went, after which he was
taken before Justice of the Peace
John E. Potter, who sent him to Wil-
liamsport for trial at the next term of
criminal court. After his arrival at the
jail he cornmenced to blubber like a
whipped child, as all such cowardly
wretches do when they find themselves
in theclutches of the law. He is evident-
ly booked for a residence in the Eastern
More WARNING.—The victims of
traveling sharpers who go about the
country practicing the tricks of the
bunco man and three card monte deal-
er, continue to multiply. Another case
of “a wealthy farmer,” near Clyde, N.
Y., being buncoed outof his money by
sharpers is reported. Last week it was
a retired New York builder, living at a
New Jersey seaside resort, who lost
$5000 to the same class of people. The
week before it was a Pennsylvania farm-
er. Ile dropped $9000. Then it was
a granger in the neighborhood of Mil-
ton who was saved from being robbed
of several thousands by the card sharps
only by the superior sagacity of his wife.
These are but a few of the cases that
come to light. The number that are
never heard of outside the immediate
neighborhood of the victims must be
many. That people will continue to be
entrapped by the artifices of designing
strangers would excite no wonder if
there were no newspapers to chronicle
the events. But each case of the kind,
when of sufficient importance, or when
it becomes known, 1s duly published,
both as news to the world and as a warn-
ing to others who may be tempted by
the promise of large gains to put them-
selves and their money in the power of
strangers. But it seems that the lesson

——Charles McGirk, son of Dr. Mec-
Girk, of Philipsburg, made a narrow es-
cape from being poisoned some days
ago. He went into Neil Davis’ jewelry
store to get a drink of water. In the
back room beside the sink sata large
sup posing it to be ice water, Charlie
dipped a tumbler full and put it to his
lips. He only took a small swallow,
when he discovered by the smell and
taste that it was not pure water. He
went to the front room and asked the
clerk, Tom McCausland, what was in
the crock, and was told that it was a so-
lution of cyanide of potassium, used for
cleaning watch cases and works. Cy-
anide of potash is a deadly poison, and
young MecGirk immediately secured
medical aid by which the poison was
ejected from his system and his life was
——The population of the rural dis-
tricts of Pennsylvania do not seem to
have increased during the past ten year.
In some sections there appearsto have
been a decrease. Perry county has
fallen off in the number of its inhabi-
tants. Armstrong county has lost 2860
in population since the census of 1880.

munity. In1880 the population was

2154, Freeport borough from 1614 to
1928. The falling oft has been in the
country districts, Brady’s Bend town-
ship falling from 2340 to 1243, Mahon-
ing from 1930 to 1281, and other dis-
! tricts in proportion.
——A dog belonging to Mr. Jeremiah
Riden, of Pleasant Gap, showed signs of
rabbies on Sunday of last week, and
was dispatched as soon as possible, He
acted strangely the day before, but was
not suspected of having hydrophobia un-
til he was noticed frothing at the mouth,
snapping at everything around, and
showing such unmistakable signs of this
terrible disease, that there could be no
mistake about it. ‘Whether he had
been bitten by some other animal is not
known, and it might be well for those
owning dogs in that neighborhood to
keep a pretty close watch on them.
——Some days ago a boy named Dan-
iel Daywalt, who was working at the
Shoemaker mines, fell between the
bumpers of the cars and the calf of his
leg was badly crushed. It was burst
open for four inches and the flesh pro-
truded ; he bleed profusely. Dr. To-
bens, of Stormstown, sewed up and dress-
ed the wound, The boy stood the
operation nobly. He is about 15
years of age and the only support of an
aged grandfather and sister. Fortunate.

of the loss of {ime from work. ’

Auman, of Miles township; was burned
on Tuesday last. Mr. Auman was
lucky enough to have his crops mostly
in a new barn which he had just com-
pleted, and which was not affected by
the fire; otherwise his loss would have
been much heavier.
——The largest family group that
was ever photographed in Bellefonte
was taken on Thursday morning by

Huntingdon county, 17 years old, with
a self-binder harvested ninety acres of
wheat this summer. This, in the light
of the old style harvesting, looks like
an immense task for a woman, but with
the modern improvements it means that
she merely sat on the seat of the reaper
and drove the horses over ninety

ed home from Camp Hartranft last Sat-
urday afternoon, after an absence of
just a week, and in excellent condition,

say that there was not a finer looking
body of men at that big gathering of
citizen soldiers.
—The barn of Mr. Benjamin Frank-
enberger, two miles west of Millheim,
on the old Dreibelbeis farm, was de-
stroyed by fire last Monday morning

——Itsan ugly charge that Charley
Rine meskes against Jacob Lucas, of
Wallace's Run. Mr. Rine is totally
blind, and keeps a little tobacco store
near the depot in this place. He has
the respect and good wishes of all who
know him, and among all his customers
{ no one heretofore has been tound mean
enough to take advantage of him in
paying for purchases. On Monday last
so Mr. Rine says, Lucas bought a few
cigars and handed him a bill in pay-
ment therefor. He was asked the amount
of the bill and answered $2. Rine gave
him the change and just as he was leav-
ing some one standing at the counter
called attention to the fact that the bill
was a $1 bill in place of a $2. Lucas
was called to, but in place of correct-
ing the wrong,beran off and has not been
seen in town since. Thisis Mr. Rine’s
verion of the affair, and if true we have
only to say that there are meaner peo-
plein this county than we ever imagin-
ed there were.
The Snow Shoe Base Ball Club
visited Pleasant Gap on last Saturday
and played a game ot ball with the
club at that place. The game was rath-
er unevenly contested up to the seventh
inning when the Snow Shoe boys, being
behind, wanted to stop playing. But
the captain of the Gap team, anxious
to make the defeat as bad as possible,
decided that the game should be finished,
whereupon the visitors, with blood in
their eyes, went at them and before the
game ended had turned the tables on
their opponents and made the score :
Snow Shoe 18, Pleasant Gap 14.
There is a good little moral in the
result of this game and the boys from
the Gap woulddo well to observe it.
Miller and Toner occupied the points
for the home team and Mr. Armstrong
A little daughter of Mr. W. Mus-
ser, employed at Rhoads’ coal yard, met

ternoon. Some children were playing on

life was dispaired of. She is improving
rapidly and her physician now has
every hope of her recovery.

splendid structure adjoining, is being
repaired and repainted inside and out.

used asa school for Catholic children
and two sisters will take charge of it
about the 1st of September.
——One of the most gentlemanly men
you run across in Philipsburg is Col.
M. Cochran who has charge of the office
at the Coal Exghange Hotel. His entire
time is devoted to the comfort of its
patrons and making their stay agree-
able, and the indivdual he fails to please
is hard indeed to satisfy.
——Mr. Shoemaker, the popular Su-

THE GrANGER ProNic.—Speaking of
the improvements the Grangers are
making on the grounds at Centre Hall
intended for their exhibitions and pic-
nics, the Centre Reporter says :
They are clearing out the bushes and
tearing away the fence. In a few days
they will commence staking off the
the ground and begin the erection of
buildings. It is not positively decided
whether the railroad company will agree
to erect the main auditorium as pre-
viously report was their intention. The
many trees planted in the spring are
thriving and looking promising, but
it will be several years before they will
be of any benefit. During the picnic an
efficient police force will be detailed to
watch them and any one mutilating
them will be made an example of.
Tribute to the Memory of Elmer Lutz,
Elmer Lutz, whose sad death by the break-
ing of a hay-fork pulley, on the Major Rey-
nolds farm near Fillmore, has already been
mentioned in the columns of the Warcuyax,
was the son of John and Margaret Lutz, born on
the farm of James Henderson, snd he spent in
Benner township the short life which was
brought to so untimely an end. His age was
twenty-three years, ten months and one day.
How young you may exclaim. But God moves
in a mysterious way his wonders to pertorm.
In this case we may use the lines
Oh, where is our brother we have loved so
And why did he leave us so soon ?
He has gone up there to his home in
And he will never come back any more. *
He left father and mother, four sisters and
seven brothers, all of whom but one brother
were permitted to follow him to his last rest-
ing place at the Shiloh grave yard on a beauti-
ful Sunday afternoon, where the funeral ser-
vices were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Black,
pastor of the Reformed church. The words
of his text were, “Prepare to meet thy God.”
All present thought it an excellent discourse
for the occasion.
Oh, that all when called to leave this sinful
world could pray as he did and die saying the
Lord's Prayer, the prayer our Saviour taught
his disciples whilst on earth with them, He
said he had found peace with God and pardon
for his sins. Well can we say,as the hymn
tells us:
Weep not for our brother who is gone,
Our loss is his infinite gain ;
With songs let us follow his flight,
And mount with his spirit above
And lodged in the Iden of love.
Our brother the heaven hath gained,
Out flying the tempest and wind ;
His rest he hath sooner obtained,
And left his companions behind.
Hard toiling to make the blest shore,
Where all is assurance and peace,
And sorrow and sin are no more,
May we all meet in heaven above.
