An Elk county man is talking |
— Wednesday of last week was a great
day 'n Philipsburg, this county; for the
Odd Fellow’s fraternity. It was the
occasica of the dedication of the fine
new hall of Magnolia Lodge,in the cere-
monies and exercises connected with
which the lodges in this part of the
State were invited to participate, an in-
vitation to which many of them respond-
ed with that fraternal spirit for which
that order is distinguished.
Great preparations had been made by
both the Odd Fellows of Philipsburg
and the citizens generally who always
di play much publicspirit and hospital-
ity on such occasions. The town was
profusely decorated and everything put
inthe most attractive order for the re-
ception and entertainment of the visit-
ors. Dinners were provided for between
| 800 and 900 people at Brinton, Dun-
can & Barnes hall, this essential feature
of the occasion being admirably man-
aged by a committee of ladies consisting
of Mrs. R. A, Kinsloe, J. M. George,
Sol, Smith, John Stine, H. O. Hofer,
Matthew Elder, S. Cross, W. W. An-
drews and Bertha Smidt.
The parade was one of the largest
and finest ever seen in that section of
the State, including 32 Odd Fellow
lodges, besides other organizations, num-
bering in all 1400 and 1500 in line.
The lodges were from Great Island,
Broad Top City, Glenn Hope, Burnside,
Tremont, Bald Eagle, Blanchard, Osce-
ola, Clearfield, Mingle, McIntire, Beth-
esda, Boalsburg, Allmanville, Karthaus,
Bellwood, Coalport, Houtzdale, Snow
Shoe, Half Moon, Mapleton, Lumen,
Port Matilda, Allport, Bellefonte and
other places, and in addition there
were organizations of the Knights of
Pythias, United American Mechanics,
Patriotic Sons of America, Knights of
the Golden Eagle, Royal Arcanum and
fire companies. In the line there
were bands from Bellwood, Hunting-
don, Bellefonte, Milesburg, Clearfield,
Philipsburg, Kylertown, and several
drum corps. The procession was head-
ed by carriages occupied by the officers
of the Grand Lodge and the Chief Bur-
gess of the town.
The ceremonies of dedication com-
menced in the new hall a few minutes
| after three p. m., and were conducted
| by Grand Master €has. D. Freeman and
| Post Grand Sire Jamas B. Nicholson,
both of Philadelphia. In the evening
Post Grand Sire Nicholson delivered an
interesting and eloquent address in the
Opera House which was listened to by
a large and attentive audience. This
was followed bv a banquet of the. most
sumptuous character at the Potter House.
In all respects iv was a great day for
Philipsburg and or the Odd Fellows.
While Edward Riggles, of Howard,
this county, was out hunting squirrels
near that place on Saturday last, he was
unfortunately killed by accidental dis-
charge of his gun. In meking an effort
to dislodge a squirrel, which he had shot
from a young sapling, it appears that he
used the butt of his gun to jar the tree,
by which foolish act the gun was dis-
charged, the load entering his abdomen.
Dr. Mothersbaugh, of Beech Creek, was
summoned, but the unfortunate lad
died before his arrival. He was a son
of Mr. George Riggles and was a little
over fourteen years of age. When found
by Mr. Frank Brown and several other
men who were working near, he was
praying and told them to tell his broth-
ers and sisters not to worry, for he said
«by tomorrow I will be in heaven.” Tt
was a very sad accident and should teach
parents not to leave such young boys
go out with a gun. The funeral
took place on Monday at Howard.
A QueEr Rooster Fiaur.—The
Lock Haven Democrat tells the fol-
lowing tale which furnishes an intere:t-
ing mixture of love, jealousy and bana-
nas : “We are told of an individual who
has been paying attention to two women
and on Saturday night started out
courting. As he entered the door of the
oneon Grove street with a big bag of
bananas in his hand for the purpose of
treating her, the other,and for the time
being deserted one, who had followed
her beloved, entered with him. The re-
sult was a scene of a very lively nature,
for the latter fomale grabbed the bag of
bananas and commenced to clout her
rival over the head with it. The result
was a regular squabble, which one of
the spectators said looked like a ‘‘rooster
fight,” but we don’t see how it could
have looked like that either, considering
that both the participants were only a
couple of old hens.”
Dr. T. J. Kean. veterinary surgeon, on
Saturday extracted from the shoulder of
a horse belonging to S. W. Caldwell, of
the Irvin House, a ten-cent piece of the
coinage of 1857. The only way in which
the presence of the dime in the horse’s
shoulder has been accounted for is on
the theory that it may have been placed
there for pow-wowing purposes.

—A careful survey of the country
exchanges convinces us that the season
of snakes stories is past, and that the fish
yarns are all in. But there remains to
be recounted the wonderful exploits of
the turkey hunter, and the number of

holiday. — Ew.
— Typhoid fever was the cause of
the death of Mrs. Ada McClintock, wife
of Howard McClintick, who died in this
place last week, at the age of about 30
years, leaving a husband and one child.
She was a devoted member of the Meth-
odist church. Her remains were taken
to Mill Hall for interment.
— Wild turkey shooting began on
Wednesday, and reports say that the
woods are full of them. It will be a
good season generally for game, owing

open season, says that after a mild win-
ter game is always plentiful.—Philips-

Katie RHOADES will be here next
week. She has billed for the whole
week, a week of comedy, and has better
support than she has had in years;
cheap prices will prevail every night.
This company played at Wilkesbarre
and this is what the News, Dealer says
of them : “The Katie Rhoader comedy
Co. made its debut to the }largest
Wilkesbarre audience of the season last
night at Music Hall in a manner that
was both creditable and highly satis-
factory. The play produced was ‘The
Planters Wife,’a pleasing comedy drama.
The rendition was excellent and: all the
parts were well taken. Mis. Rhoader fill-
ed the leading role faultlessly. She has
a good voice and is handsome and
makes a good stage appearance. She
thoroughly captivated the audience that
filled the hall from pit to dome, and there
were rounds of applause whenever she
was on the stage. Taken all in ali Miss
Rhoader has a well balanced aad strong
support. The show gave entire satisac-
tion which was indicated by continuous
applause. The mujority of high priced
companies cannot do as well as did Miss
Rhouaders’ company.”

A MUSEUM OF ART.--A large jewel-
ry establishment, such as Bailey, Banks
& Biddles’, Chestnut & 12th streets,
Philadelphia, is a perfect museum of art.
Tt is a rave one too. Soma of the finest
artists and sculptors that have lived
gave their best efforts to the designing
of jewelry, It remained ,however,for the
present generation to discover that a
complete jeweiry store should have
gems of household as well as articles of
personal ornamentation. This idea
seems to be the one that has prompted
thig firm to have in stock masterpieces
of European potteries, exquisite bits of
sculpture in marble and bronze, in ad-
dition to beautiful examples of the gold
and silversmith’s art.

Tae Late June LiNN.--The fol-
lowing interesting tacts connected with
the life of the late Judge Linn, recently
deceased in Williamsport, are given in
the minutes and resolutions passed by
the Centre county bar upon his death :
He was born on his father’s farm ad-
joining Bellefonte, on the 20th day of
February, 1820, and was the son of Rev.
James Linn, D. D., who was pastor of
the Presbyterian church of Bellefonte
for fifty-eight years.
He was educated atthe Bellefonte
Academy, and in early life manifested a
taste for mechanics and science, and had
he been led to pursue this as a calling
he would have doubtless excelled ~~ Ros-
tive during the progress of his education,
when only fifteen yearsold he went to
the State of Ohio with his uncle, James
D. Harris, then principal engineer of
the Pennsylvania and Ohio canal ex-
tending from New Castle to Akron. In
Murch, 1836, when Mr. Harris was ap-
pointed principal engineer of the North
Branch division of the Pennsylvania
canal, he joined the corps of engineers
and continued in the work upwards of
five years, and although very young,
earned an enviable reputation.
He commenced reading law with the
late Bond Valentine, Esq., in 1840, and
after attending Judge Reed’s law school
at Carlisle, Pa., returned to Bellefonte
and finished his course in law with the
late Hon® James T. Hale, and was ad-
mitted to the bar of Centre county at
January term, 1843.
Ile opened an office in Bellefonte and
in 1347 became a partner with Hon,
James T, Hale, which firm was dissolv-
ed upon the appointment of Judge Hale
President Judge of the Twenty-fifth Ju-
dicial district in 1851. He was married
December 1, 1847, to Miss Augusta
Moore, of Carlsle, and in 1856 associated
his brother-in-law, the late William P.
Wilson, Esq., in practice, which con-
tinued until the Judge’s election to the
In 1857 Mr. Linn published his ‘A na-
lytical Index Reference to the Cases Ad-
judged in the Several Courts of Penn-
sylvania,” a work involving an im-
mense amount of labor, and of incalcu-
lable value to the profession in the pre-
paration of cases. Hon. George Shar:-
wood, afterwards Chief Justice of Penn-
sylvania, said of it: ‘To be able to

Hon. James Barnside died in office,
July 1, 1859, and Hon. James Gamble,
of Jersey Shore, was appointed, July 15,
1859, to fill the vacancy, and was nomi-
nated by the Democratic Judicial con-
ferrees for the full term, and the Re-
publican county convention recommend-
ed Samuel Linn. Judge Linn, at the
October election of 1859, carried Centre
county by a majority of 729 votes.
Judge Gamble’s majorities in Clearfield
and Clinton counties were 171 and 97
respectively, and Judge Linn’s majority
in thejdistrict, 461 votes, was remarkable
evidence of his popularity in a district
overwhelmingly Democratic.
Asa Judge his charges to the jury
were clear and explicit; his decisions
were marked by general acquiescence,
and his sentences were just, but he was
not satisfied with himself in the position,
and resigned the office in May, 1868.
He then resume] the practice of law at
Belletonte in copartnership with Hon.
A. O. Farst, which continued until
Judge Linn’s removal to Williamsport
in 1869.
As an ejectment lawyer he had no su-
perrior in Pennsylvania. He was one of
the most eloquent of advocates; his elo-
quence was not of manneror action, but
of thought clothed in the most beautiful
and appropriate language—elogquence
brightened by his wit and enlivened by
his humor, of which he had an inex-
hausible fund.
While a law student at Carlisle he be-
came a member of the Presbyterian
church, and after his return to Belle-
fone was successively teacher and su-
perintendent of the Sabbath school, and
was elected and served asan Elder of
the Presbyterian church of Bellefonte
after representing it in the highest as-
semblies of the church.

Trouble in Bucks Couty.
The Doylestown Intelligencer, which
for years has been the recognized Re-
publican organ of Bucks county, in one
of its recent issues says :
“Boss Keeler and his henchmen are
sick and weary of the discouraging task
put upon them by the Quay chairman’s
circular, sent out a few days ago, upon
which was to be returned the number
of dissatisfied republicans in the county.
Through the western section of the
county. already over 200 names have
been returned, and still they come | In
the language of a disgusted sub-com-
mitteeman : ‘It’s all dissatisfaction.
There seems to be no exception to the
rule. It looks as though it would have
been easier counting to have taken the
names of those who profess to be satisfi-
ed. The whole business is gone—county,
state and congress.”
Delamater and the Miners,
Wage-Earners’ Journal.
Delamater stated that he was in fav-
or of the miners having better wages
.than they are now receiving, yet in the
last session of the Legislature he voted
against the Factory Inspection Bill,
voted against the “ Employer’s Liability
Bill” by which miners injured in the
mines by reason of the carelessness of
bosses or the parsimony of operators,
they, the miners, could recover dam-
ages ; voted against the Anti-Company
Store Bill ; voted against McCaffry’s
Miners’ Dockage bill. It strikes us that
it is the quintessence of cheek for Mr,
Delamater to say, or for any one to say
for him, that he—Delamater—is friend-
ly to the miners or their interests.
