and was an universal favorite. A two
week’s illness with catarrh fever ended
in her death. Martha had an unusual-
ly pretty doll and it was her desire that
it be buried with her, accordingly the
plaything was placed in the coffin with
the little sleeper. .
MoRrE PrisoNERs EscarE.—Wednes-
day morning at Fort lshler was one
which that official will long remember.
Bright and early the high Sheriff and
his estimable wife were up to prepare
for a trip on the day express which
leaves here at 5:30, but early as they
were Mrs. Ishler was not long in dis-
covering that some one had relieved them
of the trouble of unlocking the massive
jail doors. Everything was excitement
in a minute. The Sheriff and his depu-
ties flew hither and thither and all at
orce it dawned upon them that some of
their guests had departed without say-
ing adieu. The jail was quickly enter-
ed where all the cells were found un-
locked and the big iron door leading out
into the office corridor half ajar. Im-
agine the Sheriff’s feelings upon finding
this unusual state of things. The first
thought was that his large family had
| forsaken the shelter of the county domi-
cile and struck for parts unknown, but
the roll brought a ‘here’ fromevery
prisoner except Andrew Timms and
Henry Weaver, alias Pennington, Those
two had decided that the place they
were in did not cover enough territory,
and left, but before going an invitation
was extended to the others to get “in
the swim.”
Timms is the little cross-eyed, shriv-
eled up clock tinker and expounder of
the P. 8. and R., but recently released
from the penitentiary, and was awaiting
trial for an assault upon a little girl up
in Rush township. His companion in
flight was the nian Weaver or Penning-
ton whom Judge Furst senteaced for a
year at the January court for an at-
tempt to commit rape in Milesburg.
His home is near Axe Mann and itis
said that he had $400 with him when he
left. If this be true he is well prepared
for a long “stand off.”
It appears that the escape was effected
by the use of keys which Timms skill.
fully made out of an old stove pipe. He
was a traveling tinker, and, though the
personification of all that was ignorant,
was quite a genius in his line as this job
seems to indicate.
Efforts are being made to recapture
the fugitives, but the fact that they were
well supplied with money is rather
against their apprehension. The Sher-
iff offers $25.00 for the capture of Timms
and $10.00 for that of Weaver, but the
commissioners do not feel justified in
offering any reward. The description
of the men is as follows:
Timms is thirty-four years of age, 5
feet 6 in. in height, dark hair and a
small black mustache. Has two teeth
out of the upper jaw and his eyes are
crossed and dark.
Weaver is 28 years old, is six feet
and weighs 180 pounds. A florid com-
plexion light eyes and mustache and is
a well proportioned, raw boned fellow.
Newton GRAHAM'S Bony FoUuND.—
At last the untiring efforts of Mr. Al-
fred Graham, of Zion, to find the body
of his brother have been rewarded with
Our readers will remember the cir-
cumstances surrounding the loss of New-
ton Graham while hunting in the Alle-
gheny mountains last December, and
how, ever since, his sad hearted brother
has kept up a search for the body which
was believed to be lying under the snow
on Leonard Ridge. It will be remem-
bered that the last that was seen of him
alive was when ha left the hunting camp,
on Dec. 2d, to walk to Clearfield town
a journey from which he never returned:
On Monday morning last his brother
decided to make a final search with a
posse large enough to effectually scour
the whole region: Accordingly one
hundred and fifty men were engaged,
and, as the snow had almost entirely
disappeared, the search was immediate-
ly begun with the results given in the
following telegram :
OLeARFreLp, March 24.—The body
of Newiwn Graham was found this
morning by the searching party who
left early for Leonard Ridge. The
body was lying on its left side, lying
parallel with the Range, and about
three miles from where he was last seen
alive. Hisarms were folded over the
breast, and the legs were drawn up,
Graham’s face was disfigured by birds
of prey or animals. The body was in a
fair state of preservation. There was
nothing disturbed about his clothing,
excepting the disappearance of his
watch. His gun, watch, chain, mittens,
hat and rifie were found in different
parts of the woods.
His remains were carried in a ham-
mock made of a blanket and taken
charge of by Undertaker Leavy. His
rifle, was left at Harder’s gun store for
official examination.
* The results of Tuesday’s work will
certainly bring comfort to the sad heart
of Mr. Alfred Graham, for now the sus-
pense is over, and while his grief at his
brother’s untimely end is no doubt poig-
nant, yet the satisfaction of being able
to administer the last sad rites over one’s
dead will be balm to the mourning
——A Miss Solt, of Snow Shoe town-
ship, was found dead in bed on Sunday
morning. The post mortem disclosed
the fact that death resulted from a ruptur-
ed blood vessel caused by eating too
many peanuts. It issaid that she ate
three quarts before going to bed or
Saturday night.

——The meeting of the stockholders
of the Valentine Iron Company, which
was held here on Tuesday, was drawn
out into two sessions without definite re-
sults. The rumor that the mine barks
are to resuma on April 1st is unfounded.
— Chief Westbrook, of the Lock
Haven police force, traced S. M. Eber-

——Jas, Miller, and E.Pearson, a boy
18 years old, attacked and robbed a
drunken man, named Harman, near the

tentiary and it is Jikely he will go back
for another.
The Houtzdale bank changed
hands on Monday, Wm. H. Dill, of
Clearfield, and John B. McGrath, of
Houtzdale, being the purchasers from
the Houtz heirs. The capital of the
the bank will be $50,000, with Dill as
president and McGrath cashier, It is
said that the sale was made to forestall
an anticipated ruin.
——TRead the Road Bill, us passed by
the Senate, which will be found on an!
inside page of this week’s WATCHMAN.
If it is disapproved by the citizens they
sbould bear in mind that now is the
time to show their disapprobation by
remonstrance. If such disapprobation
is not indicated, the Legislature will
conclude that the Bill suits the people.
Commissioners Thompson, Gear-
hart and Magaffey, of Clearfield county,
were in Bellefonte Tuesday night. The
object of their visit was to meet our
board in relation to the building of the
Moshannon bridges at Philipsburg.
Messrs. Thompson and Magatfey, ac-
companied by Commissioners Adams
nad Strohm, were pleasant callers cn
‘Wednesday morning.
——An Altoona man, named Chris-
tian Seibarz, went into a neighbor's
house and put little Paul Schmidthur-
ber on the top of a red hot slove. The
fiend escaped and the child was horribly
burned. Large pieces of flesh clung to
the stove when the mother came to the
rescue. Seibarz slipped into the house
again on Sunday and grabbed the boy,
but he was knocked down and arrested
before he could accomplish his mission.
———Co. B, 5th Reg., P.N. G. was in-
spected in its armory in this place, on
Monday evening last, the inspecting
officer being Maj. S. K. Patterson, of
Pittsburg. Capt. Reber has been] sick
tor a few days and was unable to be
with his company, but it nevertheless
passed an exceedingly creditable inspec-
tion, especially in general tactics and
the manual of arms. The company’s
accoutrements were found to be in ex-
cellent order.
——The W. C.T. U. gave a sociable
at the residence of Mr. J. V. Thomas,
on Friday evening last. The program
prepared for the entertainment of the
guests consisted of vocal and instrumen-
tal selections, pieces by the banjo club,
and humorous recitations by W. 1.
Swoope,esq. The evening was very en-
joyably spent by all present and the pro-
ceeds were rather large for an entertain-
ment of the sort. Quite a large number of
people were present to enjoy the hospit-
ality of the W's.
——The new jail at Somerset does
away with the scaffold in executing
murderers, The inside of the jail is en-
tirely of iron, and double iron trap doors
in the hallway of the upper floor consti-
tute the drop and two iron rings fasten-
ed in an iron joist of the ceiling of the
second story serve to secure the ropes.
The executions take place in an upper
corridor of the building where the
witnesses are stationed. The bodies
drop through the trap and hang
partly in the lower corridor. The
room in the jail only allows about 85 or
40 persons, as no more can be accommo-
dated. About 400 persons have address-
ed Sheriff Good to witness the execution
of the Nicely brothers.

WELCOME VisiTors.—Among the
people whom Bellefonte has at one
time been honored to claim as residents,
none receive a more universal welcome
on their visits than do Mr. R. M. Ma-
gee and his charming wife. For many
years Mr. Magee and his family lived in
our town and we must say we were real-
ly sorry at his good fortune, for when
the Brooklyn Life Insurance company,
seeing in him a man of sterling worth
and marked ability, made him their
general manager for Pennsylvania, with
head quarters at Philadelphia, they took
from us one of our best citizens and we
were sorry only for our own loss, but
proud indeed of his success.
Bellefonte concert goers will well re-
member Mrs. Magee’s sweet voice and
the frequency with which she sang for
the many benevolent causes. Then
there were Willie and Forest, the two
bright boys upon whom the hopes of
ot the fond parents are centered, to com-
plete the family circle.
Mr. Magee is prominently mentioned
for State Insurance Cominissioner and
is receiving the endorsement of many of
the most influential organs in the State.
They spent Sunday with Mr. Ma-
gee’s sister, down in Penns Valley, and
Monday was given to Bellefonte friends.
RoBBED oF $650.—On Friday ot
last week Mr. Abbot B. Garth, a promi-
nent citizen and merchant of Mill Hall,
Clinton county, received from the Lock
Haven Trust and Safe Deposit Company
the sum of $650 which he intended pay-
ing to the employes of the axe factory,
in wages. As was his custom he con-
cealed the money in the bed in his own
room and after supper went down to his
Store, no one being in the house but
his little son and daughter. About half
past seven the little boy went across the
street to get his grandfather to play
checkers with him, and while absent
his little sister heard a noise up stairs,
whereupon she ran to tke window just
in time to see some one jump from her
father’s bed-room window to the back
porch roof. Alarm was immediately
given, but no trace of the thief could be
found. He had departed with the en-
tire sum and successfully carried out one
of the most daring robberies that has
ever been committed in that section.
‘WeDpDED oN TukspAy.—The social
circles of Julian, this county, were set
agog Tuesday morning by the ceremony
which made Mr. D. C. Gingerick, one
of the most prosperous young farmers of
the Bald Eagle Valley, and Miss Celia
Bullock, daughter of IL. C. Bullock, of
Julian, man and wife. The nuptials
were celebrated in the morning at the
home of the bride's parents whither
many guests had betaken themselves to
see the young people married, After
the ceremony the wedding party, six in
number came to Bellefonte on the 9.32
train. The day was pleasantly spent
here and they returned at 5.20. When
the happy pair presented themselves to
Rev. Bardens, in the nicely decorated
parlor of the Bullozk home, the bride
looked beautiful in a costume of tan
satin and white, while the groom wore
the conventional suit of black. Mr.
Gingerich and his fair bride have the
WATCHEMAN’S hearty congratulations.
SerrousLy ILn.—We clipped the
following from the Harrisburg Patriot
of Tuesday morning, March 24th :
Hon.Samuel T.Shugert, of Bellefonte,
is lying seriously ill at the residence of
his mother-in-law, Mrs. Ovid F. John-
ston, on West State street. Mr. Shu-
gert had a paralytic stroke a year or two
ago, from which he has not recovered,
and he has been more or less a sufferer
since. To many of the present genera-
tion the name of so prominent a Demo-
crat and politician is hardly familiar
He was chief clerk in the patent office
under the administrations of Presidents
Pierce and Buchanan, and had previous-
ly served in the most important capaci-
ties in his native State. Several years
ago, he, in conjunction with Major R.
H. Forster, of this city, started the Cen-
tre Democrat, of Bellefonte, which is
yet published. Mr. Shugert has arriv-
ed at more than the patriarc hal age, and
with his advanced years the gravest
fears are entertained for his recovery.
For Brine DRUNK. —At the last ses-
sion of court at Hollidaysburg, Frank
‘Wood was called as a juror in the case
of D. II. Meek vs. Blair County Bank-
ing Co. When Wood entered the jury
box he was discovered to be under the
influence of hquor. Judge Dean sent
him to hisceat and another juror was
called in his place. Next day Judge
Dean called Wood to the bar and ad-
ministered a scathing rebuke and wound
up by fining him $25 for contempt of
Court and further directed that his
name should never again be placed in the
jury wheel in Blair county.
TaE First DEATH.—Michael Mitch-
ell, the Hungarian miner who was so
badly injured by an explosion caused by
his lighted lamp falling from his hat
while filling his small powder can from
a large one, died at the State Cottage
Hospital, at Philipsburg, on Monday
morning,the 23d. When admitted, the
| hospital staff had very little hopes of his
' recovery and his death was not unex-
! pected.
Rev. Geo. GUYER'’S Deatu.—The
death of Rev. George Guyer, which oc-
curred at his home in Tyrone on Tues-
day night, removes the oldest minister
of the Central Pennsylvania Methodist
Conference. About two years ago he
retired from the pulpit, having complet-
ed his fifiieth year of ministerial work.
Reverend Guyer, who was born
February 28th, 1812, at Logan’s Branch,
this county, was 79 years old at the
time of his death, and the last ses-
sion of the conference, which convened
at Sunbury recently, was the first one he
missed since his ordination in the minis-
try in 1837. His entire work had been
confined to the Central Penna. confer-
ence and his appointments were always
in Blair, Huntingdon, Clearfield or Cen-
tre county. It is said that he had in-
variably expressed the desire to work
among his friends and relatives. Not
having the benefits ot a collegiate edu-
cation he nevertheless proved himself to
be an exceptionally bright and able
man. He acted as Presiding Elder for
this district for two terms and wherever
he was heard his sermons were noted for
their beautiful portrayals of the truth of
the gospel.
In his demise the Methodist church
loses a faithful servant and the world a
man whose honesty sincerity and purity
were beyond reproach.
——Rev. J. W. Haughawout, aged
81, a Methodist minister well known in
Centre county, died at his home in
Williamsport on Tuesday night.
A GrAND BaLL.—The after Lent
ball, which Co. B will give in its armory
on Monday evening, March 30th, is go-
ing to be a very nice affair indeed. The
members of the company have been
working hard to make the dance a suc
cess and ‘we haven’t a doubt but that it
will be such. The committee, Messrs,
Frank Williams, Wm. Rider, Kirk
Tate, Phil. Garbrick and Joseph Gross
are old hands at conducting such affairs
and we can assure you, if you attend,
that you will have the pleasure of at-
tending a nicely managed ball. A good
orchestra has been engaged, and what,
with a splendid floor and nice associates,
could add more to the success of sucha
night? Be sure to attend or you will
miss a rare opportunity of an enjoyable

— The following notice, from the
Philadelphia Times, of March 18th,
should be ample guarantee of the gen-
eral excellence of the Franklin and Mar-
shall College Glee and Mandolin Club.
It is especially flattering because of the
fact that the clubs of Princeton, Rutgers
and the W. of P. had just preceded
them but a short time.
The Glee and Mandolin Club of
Fravklin and Marshall College came
down from Lancaster last evening and
delighted a large audience at Association
Hall. The concert was for the benefit
and under the auspices of the Medico-
Chirurgical Hospital and was a success,
both from an artistic and financial point
of view. The programme called for
sixteen numbers, but the numerous
encores more than trippled the biil, each
successive selection adding to the favor
of the audience. No better college
musical organization has been heard
here this season, the concerted pieces
ranging from the most rollicking of
eollege glees to nicely balanced choral,
sharing equal favor with the solos. The
selections upon the mandolins, guitars
and violins were also capitally received.
attempt was made to wreck a train near
Ramay junction, on the Moshannon
branch of the T. & C. railroad, on Sat-
urday last. The engine of a passenger
train was thrown clear over on its side,
but fortunately the engineer, John Has-
son,and his fireman, John Casey, escap-
ed withoat serious injury. It is
thought that the plan was laid to wreck
the “special” bearing officials, but as it
followed the passenger train instead of
preceding it, asis the general rule, i$
escaped the trap into which the passen-
ger plunged. The wreck was caused by
an old brake shoe having been placed
in a position that the train could not
keep the rail. A strenuous efiort is be-
ing made to find the perpetrators of
this hellish deed.

people put great faith in the sign of the
fishes. An old lady calls attention to
the fact that in a Lancaster almanac, for
the month of April, there are ten sue-
cessive days that are fish marked. This
means heavy rains. In June, 1889,
there were but five fishes. It is always
to be expected that April is a month of
copious showers, and it 1s not thought
that this year it will prove an exceptional
one. E

A Car Tuar KiLLeD Pias.—Jesse
Richwine, a farmer in South Middleton
township, Cumberland county, has, or
rather had, upon his premises a large
Tom cat, which had a strong appetite
for the gore ot young pigs. One of the
above farmer's sows owned a litter of
pigs. They were ten in number. Every
day or two Mr. Richwine noticed that
the number cf little pigs was growing
less. A watch was set and the cause
discovered. The cat would jump into
the pen, seize a pig by the throat, carry
it away and kill it by sucking its blood.
Eight pigs of the litter were killed in
this way. Mr. Richwine killed the cat
and no more pigs have been missing.

morning the fires were lighted in the
iron furnace of McCoy and Linn, just
below town. The rolling mill was
started in full blast at the same time
and it is the intention of the proprietors
to keep all departments running for one
year at least. This will bring employ-
ment to seventy-five or one hundred
men in various departments, and as the
furnace is one of the charcoal kind it
will necessitate the sending out of wood
choppers, colliers and haulers, thus mak-
ing considerable business in a number
of ways. It has the WATCHMAN’ sin-
cere hope that the rest of our idle fur-
naces will follow the example and go
into blast ere long.
The Chautauqua circle met on
Tuesday evening at the residence of
Mrs. A. O. Furst, on Linn street.
Messrs. McCalmont & Co. are now receiving
a full assortment of choice field and 'garden
seeds. They purchase the most of their gar-
den seeds in bulk, such as beans, peas, sweet
corn and many other seeds, which enables
them to sellat much lower prices than those
put up in papers by the seedsmen.
This firm has had long experience in the
seed business and they certainly enjoy an en-
viable reputation for selling what they repre-
sent; as near as possible for those to do who
are engaged in the business.
Their Choice Recleaned Clover Seed always
bears the sharpest inspection, which is a re-
commendation to them as being competent
judges of seed as well as trustworthy dealers.
