at 2 o'clock the License Court for Cen-

licenses for the ensuing year. The ap-
plicants from Philipsburg were first
heard and were as follows: G. A. Wath-
er, Lloyd House; James Passmore,
Passmore House,and Geo. Leister, of the
Potter House, who after testifying that
they kept orderly houses and lived up
to the law, petitioned for a renewal,
Jeffrey Hayes asked for license for a
hotel which he said was necessary for

for a hotel which he proposes running.
Peter Ashcroft was among the petition-
ers and so were Geo. Deam and the
Rochester Brewing Company, both of
whom applied for wholesale beer license.
In Bellefonte Daniel Garman applied
for his house, W. S. Daggett for the

Spring township for which Messrs.
Hickland and Lamb were petitioners.
D. S. Keller and D. F. Fortney op-
posed the licenses while William C.
Heinle and Jas. Noll acted as attorneys
for the petitioners. Col. Keller made
quite a lengthy speech against the grant-
ing of license to the Cummings House
and it seems as though this was the only
place against which much of a fight was
made, although some opposition was
shown to the Rochester Brewing, Co. at
Philipsburg. Mr. Heinle made a very
eloquent ples in favor of Gotleib Haag,
and Jas. Noll expressed liberally his
ideas as to who should get itand who
not. ’
Not a single specific charge was pre-
ferred against any one of the hotel men
who received license last year. The
court will consider until Monday next
and then properly file the report in the
Prothenotary’s office.
Trey Don't READ THE PAPERs.—
The cashier of one of our banks had a
melancholy interview one day recently
with a Decatur township farmer and
wife, who had signed a judgment note
under the impression that it was an order
for some agricultural implements. The
swindle was perpetrated by # slick-
tongued rascal who ‘done up’ a num-
ber of other honest but gullible farmers
in Decatur township, who are now
cursing the day they ever learned to
write, and making frantic but vain ef-
forts to avoid paying the notes. The
farmer’s wife told the cashier, with tears
in her eyes, that she and her “man”
didn’t want to sign the ‘‘order,” but the
“feller jist talked an’ talked, an’ the
first thing we knowed we had signed our
names.”” The cashier, in pity for their
forlorn condition, agreed to not ‘push’
the note for awhile, until the granger
could “dicker off the spotted heifer and
the sorrel colt,” and raise the wind to
pay the “darned shirt tail note.”
Will the horny handed sons of toil
never learn to lock out for these scound-
rels who go around wheedling them in-
to signing judgment notes ?— Philips-
burg Ledger.
MAN.—The Clearfield Republican says.
“Allison Haupt, the veteran passenger
conductor on this branch of the P. R.
R., has a letter written by the late Gen.
Sherman. The letter is dated February
9th, 1859, and was written at Leaven-
worth, Kansas. Mr. Haupt, at that
date, was very much interested in the
gold excitement a* Pike’s Peak, but he
took the precaution to ascertain facts be-
fore he undertook the journey, which
he finally declined and concluded that
if a living could not be made in Penn-
sylvania it could not be made out there.
Mr. Sherman, in his letter, which is
written on blue paper, double letter size
(four pages), gave detailed information
concerning the voyage, the best route
to take, the prices of mules, horses, ox-
en, and what it would cost for the nec-
essary rations. The letter goes to show
how remarkable the General was in
keeping himself well posted in regard to
the working of the country. Mr, Haupt
values the letter very highly because of
the recent demise of the old war hero.”
Cur Frowers.—Miss Lily Barrett
desires us to inform our readers tha! she
has accepted the agency, for Bellefonte,
for Mr. Harry Chapel, the florist of
Williamsport. Any orders for cut flow-
ers in design, bunched or loose will re-
ceive prompt attention. Mr. Chapels
hot houses are the most extensive in
central Peansylvania. Miss Barret can
be found at the telephone exchange from
which her orders will be phoned direct
to the gardens.
SuppEN Drarn.—The Centre Hall
Reporter announces the death of Mrs.
David A. Boozer, of that place, which
occurred last week after a few days ill-
ness. Internal inflummation resulting
in peritonitis was the cause of her death
at the age of about 28 years, leaving
threes small children to be cared for by
her sorrowing husband. She was the
daughter of Mr. Shannon Boal of rear
Linden Hall.
$1300, in quarters, were paid out
to the employes of the Nail Works on
Saturday last.

tive position as draughts man in an en-
gineering office in Baltimore.

night in the Court House. Every one

widow of Samuel Albright, of Mili-
heim ; Mr. Henry Royer, a well known
citizen of Potters Mills; Charles, the 16

of Centre Hall, ure recent Pennsvalley
deaths. ~
——DMiss Maggie, youngest daughter
of Mr. aad Mrs. Andrew Swartz of near
Pleasant Gap, was married to Robt. E.
Kline, of Bellefonte, on Thursday even-
ing last. The old Swariz homestead
was the scene of great festivity and the
many guests present to see the charming
young lady wedded were treated to an
elegant collation.
——The Lewisburg furniture factory
which was burned a couple of weeks
ago will be rebuilt. A meeting of the
stockholders was held a few days ago
and it was decided to rebuild at once,
The new building will be larger and
more convenient than the old one. All
the old employes, over one hundred in
number, have generouslg agreed to con-
tribute a week’s work to the company.
——On Monday evening last ex-Sher-
iff Lingle, whose home is on North
Spring street, celebrated the eightieth
year of his birth. A pleasant surprise
was given Mr. Lingle in the sudden ap-
pearance of his children and grandchild-
ren. They arrived just before tea time
and from that until late in the night the
home of tne father of two generations
was made the scene of much merriment.
——Mr. James Conroy’s household
has been augmented by the appearance
of a little boy stranger whom he found
snugly ensconced in the house upon his
return from work at the glass works on
Mdnday morning last, The little fellow
weighed fifteen pounds when he came
and is such a healthy, bouncing young-
ster that Mr. and Mrs. Conroy are the
proudest parentsin town. Congratula-
The Philipsburg Ledger has quite
a programme laid out for General D, H.
Hastings.. According to that paper the
General is to be the next Governor after
Pattison, and when he gets through
with the gubernatorial term he is to be
sent to the United States Senate. Harry
Williams, the Ledger editor, has it all
nicely planned, and if he can only make
it pan out right he may ask boldly for
any office under the Hastings adminis-
——Frank Bassett, the young gentle-
man who has so efficiently acted as
chemist to the Bellefonte Furnace Com-
pany, in this place, left on Monday
morning for Philadelphia where he will
accept a similar position with an iron
company of tLat city. While in Belle-
fonte Mr. Bassett impressed every one as
being an honest hard working young
man,and we hop= that the success which
crowned his efforts here may attend him
in his new position. Mrs. Bassett will
remain at her home here for the present.
——James M. Emery, of Le Mars,
Iowa, formerly of Lock Haven, has been
appointed by the President a special
agent to make allotments of lauds in
severalty to the Sac and Fox Indians,
with compensation at the rate of $3.00
per day and expenses. A great many
people in this city remember Jim Emery
and will be pleased to know of his pre-
ferment. Mr. Emery is an old printer,
a graduate of the Democrat office, was a
soldier during the rebellion, and is the
son of George Emery of this city. --
——An extremely painful bit of news
to oar little suburban town, Coleviile,
is recorded in the death of Mrs. William
Hile, which occurred at her home in that
place on Sunday morning last. The de-
ceased was a daughter of Mr. George
Breon, and her death was attended by
circumstances which made it particu-
larly sad. Six little ones are left to
climb the rugged ways of life without
the solicituous and tender care of a
mother. The funeral took place on
Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock from
the Methodist chapel in Coleville.
——The lecture which Gen. George
Sheridan will deliverin Garman’s Opera
House to-morrow, Saturday, night will
be for the benefit of the Methodist
church. The subject, “Modern Pagan,”
is an interesting one and the fact that
Gen. Sheridan is not only a highly edu-
cated gentleman, but a very fluent and
eloquent talker, will add much to the
pleasure of the entertainment. If you
want to hear Bob Ingersoll answered, if
you want to hear a man who can say
what he has to say in an entertaining
and instructive manner, then attend the |
SAMMY GRAY.—On Monday last as
the hand of Time neared the midday
hour, death’s cold embrace parted what
was mortal from the imwmortal of this
animated and energetic young man. He
was the youngest member of Mr. and
Mrs. S. T. Gray’s family, of Halfmoon.
He leaves three sisters, Annie, Minnie
and Nora, and one brother, William E,
who is practicing law in this place, to
mourn his loss. He was in his nine-
teenth year. Though not largs and
muscular, he was all of nobility, kind
and obliging ; always cheerful, pleasant
and ever ready to aid those he found in
need. To say that he will be missed
would scarcely convey the idea, as he
was the comfort ot his parents and idol
of his sisters, while his many and ad-
miring companions will long for his
pleasing companionship.
From childhood until he reached his
sixteenth year he aided his father on the
farm, taking entire charge of the work
for years. About three years since he
contracted a severe cold, which settled
on his lungs and slowly developed into
the much dreaded consumption, which
gnawed: steadily but severely until all
that was vital became its prey. On
Wednesday at ten o’clock the last ser-
vice that mortal man can bestow upon
his fellow being was accorded him by
the community when they laid him
peacefully and quietly away in the Half-
moon cemetery.
ABouT To RESUME. —Our readers
will, no doubt, be delighted to hear that
on Monday last the Bellefonte Furnace
Company of this place, let contracts to
the Bellefonte Boiler Works and to the
Queen’s Run Fire Brick Company, of
Lock Haven, tor the repair of their fur-
nace, incident to an early resumption of
work. The reiining of the stack and the
necessary repairs to the boilers, ete., will
require several weeks work and then
everything will be in readiness.
Itis indeed gratifying to know that
these large works are prepairing to go
into blast again as the men who are now
out of work by their non operation will
have much brighter prospects for the
spring. Let the good work go on and
not stop untiil everyone of our idle in-
dustries are in full blast and the laboring
men of this community getting in full
time for every day.
Wednesday a motion put by Hon. J. B.
Linn before the Bar association of Cen-
tre county, was seconded and carried,
thus admitting James Alexander to
practice at the Beliefonte Bar. Jim is
a full fledged barrister now and is ready
to receive cases of all kinds.
He is the only son of the late Hon. Cy-
rus ¥. Alexander and a man of sterling
worth. His many friends will be grati-
fied to learn that his examination was
passed in a creditable manner and en-
tirely satisfactory to the board of exam-
iners. James, let the lustre that sur-
rounds the name of your honored and
lamented father be the talisman that
will lead you to the eminent position
which he so nobly held at the Centre
county bar.
Fierra Again Uses HER BuTcHER
K~ire.—Concerning Fietta Weaver,
recently pardoned from the Western
Penitentiary, the Millheim Journal has
the following : “There seems to be the
same old kind of warin the mountains.
On Monday night Andy Weaver came
to our reporter and asked for a horse and
wagon to convey his wife and child to
Rising Springs to take the train for
Bellefonte. He offered to show me his
coat to see the sht Fietta had cut in it
with the butcher knife,and also said that
Fietta had made an attack on him with
a double bitted ax, and would not allow
him to remain in the house over night.”
Way Lock HAVEN HASN'T A Brass
Banp.—The reason why North Bend,
“a village of aboat 250 souls,” has a
brass band 1s, in the opinion of the Re-
nova News, merely “to bring a blush to
every face in Lock Haven, a city of over
7,000 people, which has no organization
of the kind.” Well, well, just wait—
remember that Lock Haven has had in
her time about as many brass bands as
Renovo has inhabitants. Our people
are just now taking a rest, getting their
nerves sort of quieted. That's all.—-
Lock Haven Democrat.
—The Pennsylvania State Union of
Christian Endeavor will hold a District
Convention in the First Presbyterian
Church, of Tyrone, Pa., on Thursday, |
April 9th, 1891, beginning at 2 o’clock, |
p. m., and continuing afternoon and |
evening. This District comprises Clear-
fleld, Centre, Mifflin, Juniata, Hunting-
don and Blair counties. The Conven-
tion has been called by the direction of
the President and officers
Union, many of whom will be present
and address the meeting.
Sona SkrvicE.—Next Sunday even-
ing the Reformed choir will render a
service of song instead of the regular
services, The singing will be accom-
panied by the Sunday School Orchestra,
which will add greatly to the musical
effect. -A collection will be lifted for
the benefit of the choir. The services
will begin promptly at 7 o’clook.

Ever since the morning express was
wrecked at Milesburg, on February 23d,
the railroad authorities have had detec-
tives working on the case. The large
stone found in the frog after the disaster
showed that the wreck was deliber-
ately planned by some miscreant.
A few days later Jas. Henshey, the
engineer who runs the express en-
gine, received an anonymous letter sta-
ting that the train had been wrecked
with the hope that he would have been
killed, and that it was not the unfortu-
nate Cassett against whom any enmity
was held. An immediate investigation
disclosed the fact that last summer Mr.
Henshey, in some way or other, incur-
red the dislike of three boys who were
employed on the work train gang and at
the time working on a cut near Curtin’s
, works. Soon after the three fellows
were discharged.
The above facts furnished a valuable
clue for the detective whom the Linden
agency, of Philadelphia, sent here to
work on the case. A number of anony-
mous letters which the boys injudicious-
ly—for themselves—posted about the
Milesburg station only tended to con-
firm bis belief that Frank and Harvey
Charles ard Craig Grassmyre were the
perpetrators of the awful deed, by which
one man was instantly killed and the
lives of a score more jeopardized.
Warrants for their arrest were sworn
out on Wednesday,and Thursday morn-
ing they were brought to jailin this place.
They are all quite young, not one of the
trio being over twenty years of age, and
come from very respectable families.
The charge on which they will be com-
mitted will probably be “malicious man-
slaughter,” and if they prove to be
the guilty parties the sentence will be
extremely severe, no doubt.
Frank Day, the Italian detective who
arrested Red Nose Mike and the men
who robbed Buddinger’s store in Snow
Shoe some time ago, worked the case.
We call the attention of the peo-
ple of Bellefonte to the three following
letters which are commendatory of the
lecture which Gen. G. A. Sheridan, of
New York, will deliver in the Opera
House on Saturdry night, for the bene-
fit of the Methodist church of this place.
They are from three men whose simplest
word should be an advertisement suffi-
cient to fill the opera house to overflow-
ing, Will the people of Bellefonte miss
a lecture of which “Sunset” Cox, one of
the brightest men who ever graced the
halls of Congress, speaks so highly ?
“You delight me with the intelligence
that you are going regularly on the
platform. There can be no doubt of
your success. If you are not already
known as one of the best crators in our
country it is your own fault.
Your friend, Lew WALLACE.

Congress from Ohio.]
WasHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 10, '87.
Gen. Geo. A. Sheridan is one of the
very best of our popular orators. He
always charms and instructs his listen-
ers. His rank is of the highest as a cul-
tivated and finished speaker.
[From Hon. 8. S. Cox, Member of Congress
from New York.]
‘W asHINGTON, D. C., April 19, '87.
My Dear Sir : 1 was greatly grati-
fied on Sunday night last to hear your
eloquent exposition of the great and
capital truths that lic at the basis of our
Christian system. It was a masterly
exposition ; it was more than that, it was
a complete response to all the slander
and ribaldry and fallacy and uncalled
for abuse of ‘the best man that e’er wore
earth about him,” and of the God upon
whose great heart and sacrifice our race
depends for its advancement in this
world and its beatitude hereafter. In-
cidental to this exposition, and by no
means the most prominent part of it
was the scathing rebuke to the agnostie
and infidel who has presumed to rule
God from the universe and our Saviour
from the scheme of redemption. No
words of mine can add to the rare elo-
i eution which you have brought into the
| service of the worthiest cause known to
| Tues. —We find the following in the
| Altoona Graphic News of Sunday last :
A correspondent of the Fireman's
| Standard says that Lock Haven is a
grand place at which to hold the next
| State Convention and that there are sev-
| eral railroads entering the town which
| makes it convenient to all. A promi-
rent Altoona fireman speaks his mind
i thusly : “This may do as far as the dele-
| gates are concerned, but what would
| Lock Haven do if seventy or eighty
| companies wished to go there and pa-
| rade ; where would they find shelter pro-
viding it would rain or where would
they find grub providing they got hun-
| gry. The members of the Volunteer
| Fire companies are on the increase in
the State and the majority of them like
Lto go to the State Convention and meeg
| their brother firemen from other towns
