CaxtnE Covnry.—Mr. Orrin Noble,
in the Lock Haven Democrat, says that
the first Teachers’ Institute in this part
of the State was held at Machaa-
iczville, now Mt. Eagle, Centre Co.,
about the 20th of December, 1853,
having Prof. William G. Waring, a
thoroughly educated Englishman, as its
principal instructor, Mr. Noble act-
ing as President. It was probably at
his suggestion that the latter was chos-
en president of this first institution in
central Pennsylvania, if not the firstin
the State. The teachers of Harris
township had a jear or more previous
to this time met in council, but this
session at Mt. Eagle was recognized as
the first session of the Centre County
Teachers’ Institute. Soon after this,
the first session of the Clinton County
Teacher’s Institute was held at Salona,
They were the outgrowth or result of the
zeal and earnestness of the teachers of
those days. These yearly meetings were
well attended by the people in the im-
mediate vicinity, more especially by
those who felt an interest in good
Centre county can truthfully claim to
have led the way in the matter of inter-
est in public education. Prof. Waring
and his associates in Penn’s Valley, and
the Bakers and their associates at How-
ard in the Bald Eagle Valley, were
the first to make their mark, first to
make teaching a profession and the first
to importune the Legislature for the
school law of 1854. The interest wi-
dened until teachers from these localities
were in constant demand elsewhere.
Teachers from Howard were in demand
in Lock Haven as early as 1848. =
In the earlier part of the year 1855
Prof. A. M. Browne and Ira C. Mit-
chell, Esq., taught a one term Normal
School at Howard, with a teachers’ de-
partment, and in a separate department
amcdel school. While Mr. Mitchell
was away on his wedding tour Mr. No-
ble acted as first assistant in this early
Normal School. Dr. Gibson, a highly
educated gentleman of more than or-
dinary ability, was the first Superinten-
dent of Centre county. He resided at
Jacksonville, only two miles from How-
ard, and frequently visited this embryo
Normal School. From the foregoing it
is evident that Centre county took the
lead in education at an early day. If
her schools are not now the best of any
in the State, outside the large cities, it
is thp fault of those who have failed to
act well their part since the above dates.
A ProGrEsSIVE Firm.-—The Belle-
fonte Fuel and Supply Company have
rented a new office in the Hale building
opposite the Court House, in this place.
Messrs. Thos. A. Shoemaker and Jos. S.
Montgomery, whose partnership forms |
the Company, have been working in-
cessantly for the last two years to give
the people of this community a complete
supply depot, and we are glad to say
that they have succeeded remarkably.
Connected with the Centre Coal Com-
pany and being the representatives of
the celebrated Acme Oil Co., they have
surrounded themselves with exhaustible
sources from which to supply their cuas-
tomers with the best stock at the lowest
possible figures. Their yards are ad-
mirably located for farmers who come
in with teams, being removed from the
railroad and well adapted for feeding.
They deal only in the best. No sup-
plies are purchased from them that are
misrepresented. The Company is
building up an extensive wholesale
business in the coal which is mined
from their own mines near Snow Shoe.
It is seldom that one sees two young
men build up such a business in so short
a time and we are proud to say that
Bellefonte possesses them.
Farmers’ Instrrure.—The farmers
of Centre county will have the benefit
cf two Institutes in the near future.
One will be held in the Methodist church
at Howard, on Friday and Saturday
Jan. 16th and 17th. The other will be
held in Academy Hali, at Pine Grove
Mills, on Jan. 19th and 20th. These
gatherings for instruction in higher ag-
ricultural methods are of recent incep-
tion in this community, but the ones
that have thus far been held have prov-
ed of such benefit to our farmers that
the two about to be hela are looked
forward to with much expectation. Rep-
resentatives of the State Board of Agri-
culture, State Grange, State College
Faculty, tate Horticultural Society,
and the Centre County Agricultural So-
ciety, will be present and enter into the
discussion of the questions which will
be under consideration. For the suc-
cess Of these Institutes our people should
attend and lend their efforts to the work.
Crosi oF THE SEAsoN.—-The time for
shooting quails and hunting deer came
to a close last Monday, 15th ; that is,the
law of the Commonwealth makes it a
fineable offence to kill deer and quails
after that date, though rabbits, squirrels
turkeys (wild) and pheasants may be
hunted until Jan. 1.

back wages. They expect to be paid

is only a question of a few days now un-

T. C. Kinzing, a prominent busi-
ness man of Lock Haven, and President
of the First National Bank of that
place, died at his home last Monday,
aged 72 years. He was born in Phila-
delphi, February 7, 1818. #When quite
young his parents removed to Columbia
county, where he was educated and start-
ed in business. In 1840 he went to Lock
Haven, continuing his commercial pur-
suits. In 1864 he became president of
the First National Bank, of that city, its
present prosperity being in great part
due to his careful and sagacious man-
ness interests. was a large stockholder
in the gas works of the town, and was

| haveaiready referred to the arrangement
| by which the Beech Creek Railroad is
reported to have been turned over to the
Vanderbilt interest. The following
from the Philadelphia Inquirer of the
11th inst, gives farther particulars:
General George J. Magee, who built
the Beech Creek road and has been its
general manager from the beginning,
has resigned, and J. D. Laynig, general
manager of the West Shore road, has
been appointed to succeed him. General
Magee’s retirement is said to be due to a
change in the ownership of the Beech
Creek road. The Vanderbilts, who
bought up the holdings of the minority
stockholders in the road, are understood
to have transferred their stock to the
New York Central Company, and it is
desired that the property be brought
directly under the management of that
corporation. General Mageestill retains
the presidency of the Fall Brook Coal
company, in which the Vanderbilts are
largely interested.
The Vanderbilts have purchased about
15,000 acres of bituminous coal land on
Chest creek, in the northwest corner of
Cambria county, and the Beech Creek
Road js to be extended thirty miles to
reach it. This tract is the only undevel-
oped coal territory of consequence east of
the Allegheny Mountains. It will afford
a considerable amount of traffic for the
railroad, which will turn it over either
to the Fall Brook Company or the
Reading. This extension will be made
next year.
The purpose of the change in man-
agement, however, is believed to be re-
lated to the recent acquisition of a char
ter for a road to connect the Beech
Creek with the Lake Shore at Oil City.
The construction of ninety miles of
track will close the gap and form a new
route from Chicago to Philadelphia.
For through all rail freight this route
would be of great advantage, as it would
be 905 miles long as against 1,023 by
the present route via Lyons and the
New York Central, Moreover, the
Uentral is always crowded with business
and would prefer the Philadelphia busi-
ness done over another line of which it
holds all the stock. The Central will
not lose any revenue because of a re-
duction in the distance since the Read-
ing which is its Philadelphia connec-
tion, gets an “arbitrary” for its services
and the Central gets all the rest. Of
course the Readings coal business
which is done over the docks at Buftalo
will not be changed. It is reported that
the Oil City extension will nut be fin-
ished for two years.

A Surricieyt Exeradhrion.—
These are the days of Republican na-
tional and State administrations, of a Re-
publican congress, and of an increased
monopoly tariff, which perbaps explains
the following from the Bellefonte News:
“There is now great despondency
among the employes of the Centre Iron
Company. Not only are they out of
employment, but they got no pay for
their last month’s work, and then the
great uncertainty of when they may
| start up is good reason for feeling de.
spondent. Some think the works may
start up some time next month, but the
chance of their doing so is not very
great. It isreally too bad thatsuch a
valuable plant should lay idle.”
The most remarkable span of horses in
Clinten county is owned by Commis-
sioner H. B. Kleckner. These horses
were twin colts, jet black and look ex-
actly alike. They are now past twenty-
six years of age and have worked on the
farm since they were three years old.
Mr. Kleckner at one time refused
$1,200 for them. Every year up to the
present they have done their full share
of work on the farm, During the win-
ter season they are allowed to stand in
the harness on. Something remarkable
about this team is that when in the pas-
ture field they are never seen more than
twenty feet distance from each other.—

Hier Scuoon Exercises.—The ex-
ercises at the Bellefonte High School
preceding the Holiday vacation were
interesting and instructive. Orations by

spersed with skillfully rendered music.
D, F. Fortney, Esq. delivered an address
in which he spoke highly of the good
ttendance of the High school scholars
thus far this season, averaging about 97
per cent. J, C. Meyer, Esq., after a
fitting address presented Prof. Johnston-
baugh with alarge lamp, Prof. Lieb
with illustrated histories of Palestine
and England, and Prof. Wolf with a
handsome port folio, in behalf of the
scholars. There were a number of
greatly interested visitors present,
appear to have a hunter’s paradise over
in Huntingdon county, judging from
toe following in the Huntingdon Local
News: During the deer season, which
began on the 1st of October last and
closed on the 15th inst., there have been
killed in Diamond Valley, this county,
the unprecedented number of sixty-nine
deer and two bears. The first bear was
shot some weeks ago by Martin Thomas,
of Tyrone, and weighed 210 pounds;
the last bear was shota week ago Ly
McClain Lingenfelter, of Union Fur-
nace, and weighed 176 pounds. During
the past week eighteen or twenty deer
have been shot in that region, which is
claimed to be one of the best game sec-
tions in the State, and it would seem
from the record this season that it is en-
titled to the claim.
Lost IN THE Woons.—One week ago
Tuesday Newton Graham and two com-
panions went on a hunting expedition
in the mountains north ot Clearfield.
The two friends missed Graham whilst
in the thickest of the wilds, and called
and shot their guns but all in vain, they
receiving no answer. They kept up this
calling for several hours, when they
reluctantly repaired to their homes
thinking he had preceded them, but

The church was filled to its utmost capacity
by a deeply interested congregation who look-

preacher. “Finally farewell, brethren” were
the words he based his remarks on. In the
course of his remarks he touched every
branch of his church, especially the Sunday
school, the children on whom depends the fu-
tare church work,and also the Ladies’ Mission=
ary Society, and the W. C. T. U. Society. The
church session he urged to go forward in the
work of the Master though they had no shep-
herd. He alluded to all who had been pear and
dear to him as the apple of his eye. He had
knelt at their bedside in illness, he had spoken
words of comfort at the graves of many, and
now by the Lord’s will and a hopefull spirit he
was going from among his people. Though
his departure is very much regretted by this
community irrespective of denomination,
all wish him God speed in his new field of labor
at Williamsburg where a unanimous call was
extended to hun. Of him it can be said. he
left no enemies after twenty years of service.

Newton Graham, of Clearfield Pa,, brother
of Alfred Graham, a lumberman of the firm
of Craham & Co. of this place, went out hunt-
ing on Monday, Dee., 1st, in company with
Wm. Falls, Geo. Stewart, Dean Livergood and
Joseph Leonard and proceeded to their shanty
situated on Crooked Run, a branch of Trout
run. They all started on Tuesday morning,
Dee. 2, with Graham and Leonard, tomake a
drive. About 10 o’clock Graham complained
to Leonard that his boot hurt his heel and
spoke as if he would go somewhere to get a
pair of lumberman’s gums. When he did not
return tothe shanty that night the other men
wanted to know where Newt was. Leonard
said he had gone to Clearfield to get a pair of
lumberman’s gnms, and as he did not return
tothe shanty on Friday evening, when they
were on their way home they made inquiry
for him, but no one had seen or heard of him.
The next place they went was to his brother
Harry who lives in Bradford twp. and not
finding him there, the alarm was given at
Clearfield. Alfred receiving the word Satur-
day noon, on Sunday morning at6 o'clock he
started out with 32 men, to search for his
brother. They scoured the mountains well, but
did not find him. On Wednesday morning
Mr. Graham formed another crowd of 75 men,
who were conveyed to the mountains in
sled loads, being old experience hunters with
good dogs, and yet they were unsuccesfful.
On Tuesday, when he was last seen by Leon-
ard, there was not much snow on the ground,
but on Sunday th ere was sixteen inches, mak-
ing the search almost impossible. There
has been parties searching for him ever since ,
and up to Dee. 15 no trace of him has been
found. Mr. Graham offers a reward for the
recovery of his bodywithin the next thirty days
The lost one was a single man, about thirty
years of age, a hard working, honest and up-
right young man. The friends of Mr. Graham
