humbug, but a straight offer.

At Williamsport one day within
the last week in the blacksmith shop of
M. McMillan, that tradesman, with a
boy to help him, shod ninety-six horses.
This reads like pretty big’ work, but we
find it so recorded in the morning jour-
nal of that city.
Bob Daily, of Renovo, built a fire
in his cook-stove on Sunday morning by
saturating the wood with an extra
quantity of coal oil, and the way his
hair stood on end when he saw the
stove-lids on their way to the ceiling,
was wonderful to behold. r
—— Mr. Chas. F. Berwind, president
of Berwind, White & Co., who op-

was actively interested in many of the
largest enterprises in the Keystone
——We have received and will pub-
lish next week the very able and elo-
quent address delivered by Rev. Dr. R.
A. McKinley, of Clearfield, on the occa-
sion of the unveiling of the Clara Price
monument at Karthaus on the 29 ult.
It would have appeared this week but
for the fact that it reached us too late to
get into type.
In the Beech Creek R. R. station
at Lock Haven there is a notice address-
ed to young ladies only. It notifies
them that “all loafing about the station
strictly prohibited.” The girls of that
town are in the habit of congregating
about the station to have a giddy time
catching “drummers,” but the agent is
going to stopit. Would not an enfore-
ed notice of the same nature be a bless-
ing to the traveling public at our sta-
tion also ?
——While we deplore the turn that
the business condition of our town has
taken, we do not advise the rash steps
which our little contemporary, the
Daily News, sets forth in its issue of
Monday. Instead of telling live ener-
getic people to leave Bellefonte, if they
wish to succeed, it should encourage
them to battle against the evils which it
cites as striking the death-blow of Belle-
A Faran Brow.—On last Friday af-
ternoocn a party of four persons from
Philipsburg, including William Kane,
and Kate Long, colored, and Mrs. Sy-
son (known as Maggie McCann) and
Myrtle Hunter went over to Houtzdale
and entered the restaurant of the Ar-
lington Hotel at that place. Kate Long
gave orders for oysters for tour. The or-
der was taken by Wm. Gray, the color-
ed porter of the house, who had charge
of the bar at the time, the bar tender
having gone to his supper. There was
delay about serving the of the oysters,
whereupon Kane began to make a
racket. He was then told by Gray that
he could have nothing in the hotel and
that he had better take his party and
get out. Kane swore that there was
not a nigger in Houtzdale who could put
him out and that he wasn’t going out
either. At this junction Gray went be-
hind the bar and picked up a club, sup-
posed to be a handle from a shovel, with
which he struck Kane a blow over the
left ear. Kane was assisted out of the
place by Kate Long and upon reaching
the pavement he fell. Upon hearing of
his laying there in the snow, Mrs. Auaby
the proprietor's wife, ordered the man
carried into the sample room of the ho-
tel. She thought that he was in a
drunken stupor, but instead it was his
death sleep, for he never awoke.
‘Whether it was murder or a blow
rendered in a quarrel is a question which
will only be decided by the court. The
murdered man was employed by livery-
man Paul, at Philipsburg, as an hostler,
and bore a rather ‘shady’ reputation
about thetown. His home was in Ha-
gerstown, Md. Win Gray, his assailant,
is a tall, slight colored man about 25
years of age. He hails from Greensburg,
this state, and is said by those who
know him to be an inoffensive, quiet
fellow, and it is generally supposed that
the provocation must have been very
great or he would never have committed
the crime, though the evidence at the
inquest was exactly the contrary.
Tre CoLuMBIA CYCLE CALENDAR. —
A very valuble business calendar for
1891, and entirely unique in design, is
the Columbia Cycle Calendarand Stand,
issued by the Pope Mfg. Co., of Boston,
Mass. The Calendar is in the form of a
pad containing 366 leaves, each 5} x 2}
inces, each leaf containing blank for
memoranda, and as the leaves are only
fastened at the upper end, any leaf can
be exposed, no stub being left when the
leaves are torn off. The pad rests upon
a stand, containing pen rack and pencil
holder, and made of stained wood,
mounted with raised letters in brass,
thus forming an ornamental paper
weight. The day of the week and the
day of the year, together with the num-
ber of the days to come, are given, and
each slip bears a short paragraph per-
taining to cycling and kindred subjects.
These paragraphs have been carefully
collated from leading publications and
prominent writers, the larger number
having been specially written for this
purpose. Although this is the sixth
issue of the Calendar, all the matter is
fresh and new, comprising notable
events in cycling, opinions of physicians
and clergymen, hints about road mak-
ing, and numerons other topics.
A GirL Rossep oF Her Har
‘WuiLe ASsLEEP.—-The Newport Ledger
is responsible for the following : A most
dastardly deed was perpetrated on Miss
Annie Miller, a 16-year old daughter of
Davidson Miller, who lives about two
miles above Newport on the south side
of the Juniata, in Juniata county, on
Sunday night. The family had retired
to bed as usual,leaving the door unlock-
ed to allow a son, who is watchman on
the railroad track, to have free ingress
and egress. Miss Annie was possessed of
a luxuriant head of light colored hair,
which when flowing reached below her
knees. Monday morning when her fath-
er called herto get up,she discovered
that some fiend had been to her bed
during her sleep, cut her tresses oft and
earried them away. ‘Who'did the deed

STAND RicuT BY Him.—There is an
architect in Bellefonte by the name of
Robert Cole and the Bellefonters appear
to stand right by him. Among the
buildings latterly planned by him are
| Col. 'Wilkinson’s new house, Dr. Sei-
bert’s, the new United Brethren church,
the remodeling of Colonel Spangler’s,the
remodeling ofthe Bellefonte Academy
and lots of others, and all superior speci-
mens of architecture. This patronizing
of their own townsman is a commehnda-
ble feature in the Bellefonte property
owners who have buildings to erect.—
Lock Haven Democrat.
A SINGULAR Farariry.—For the’
past few years a singular fatality has
attended the leading members of the
Berwin White Coal Company. First,
Allison White, then Harry Frank, fol-
lowed by H. G. Fisher, and now Charles
F. Berwind, all within the space of two
or three years——members of the most
prominent and leading coal company of
this section—and the majority of them
young men in the prime of life.—

——We call the attention of our read-
ers to the new advertisement of the
Rochester Clothing House, which is to
be found on the fifth page of this paper.
Mr. Fauble tells the buying public in
concise phrases the exact conditions un-
der which they can buy at his store, and
you can rest assured that they are the
best and that he lives up to them. Mr.
A. Fauble has just returned from Phila.
and Baltimore, where he has purchased
a new line of winter over-coats. This is
their third trip to the eastern markets,
this fall, and by going often they are
able to keep their store full of the latest
style goods. Nothing gets old at the
Rochester for the simple reason that it is
closed out before it gets the chance, and
stylish new goods takes its place. If
you want bargains in all kinds of cloth-
ing, the Rochester Clothing House is
the place to get them.
AN ADVANTAGE OF BEING INSURED.
—A short time ago Mr. Wm. F. Tip-
ton, of Howard, this county, died. He
held an insurance policy on his life for
one thousand dollars. On Thursday
Mr. W. H. Musser, the agent of the Un-
ion Central Life Insurance Co. of Cin-
cinnati, was in this office and showed us
a check, payable to Rebecca J. Tipton,
Mr. Tipton’s mother, for $1000. By
having been insured in a reliable and
prompt paying company, Mr. Tipton
left his mother a nice little legacy.
——The young men of our county

been granted, viz: Thos, Barnes, Jr.,

Houserville. "We suppose our young

isfaction wherever it has appeared. This

edy “Our Jonathan.” A brass band and
orchestra are attractive features.
——Two would-be cow-boys, at
Philipsburg, frightened the good people

Davenport, the leading character in a
somewhat “dizzy” show that played in
Lock Haven one night recently, was ar-

some condemnatory remark about the
vulgarity of the show’s bills, whereupon
the Davenport proceeded to do her up.

affect 20,000 men. It is not probable,
however, that a strike will be ordered.

J. W. BLAIR,
A Sap Drarn.—Friends in this
county will be grieved to hear of the
death of Mrs. Edward Krumrine, which
occurred at her: home, in Milton, on
Saturday morning last. Her case is a
particularly sad one from the fact that
while laboring under a weakened mind,
caused by prolonged sickness, she hung
herself to the transom of her bed-room.
Mrs, Krumrine was Miss Kerlin, a
daughter of Mr. W. A. Kerlin, of Rudd,
Towa, who at one time operated Rey-
nold’s Mill in this place, and was a wo-
man admired by all who knew her for her
loving traits and womanly goodness.
Her husband was formerly a resident of
Spring Mills and he, with one daughter,

FATAL CHILDS Pray.—-Two little
children were left in the house by them-
selves at Huntersville, near Hughesville
some days ago, during the temporary
absence of their mother, and as the
co nsequence one of them was burned to
death. The elder, of the two under-
took to amuse the younger by putting a
stick in the fire, it ignited, and then
poking the latter with it. This funny
business set the little ope’s clothes on
fire, and when the mother returned she
found her baby a blackened corpse, all
the clothes having been burned from the
body. This wasa Sunday occurrence
and the name of the family was Rinear-
THE CLEARY CASE.—In regard to the
long suspended Cleary murder case, the
Lock Haven Democrat says: Peti-
tions are out asking the Court to accept
the plea of “guilty of murder in the
second degree” trom Charles Cleary,
and thus save the cost of a new trial,
which is set down for the coming Jan-
uary term. "This seems like a curious
and is certainly a very unusual proceed-
ing, and we do not know whether the
Court would have any right to or would
even contemplate theacceptance of such
a proposition. Of this ths Court itself
must be its own adviser and we have no
doubt that it will do what is right in the
