Buxco Mex Do Business IN RENovo.
—On Saturday, at Renovo, George Bur-
gers was fleeced of $700 in the following
manner : Two men, who said their
names were Dr. Randall and James
Cameron, came to him and stated that
one of them wanted to buy his brewery,
located at St. Mary’s. They maneuver-
ed around until they got Pim into a tent at
the circus, which was exhibiting there,
and soon became interested in a game of
three card monte. Soon Mr. Burgers
was the happy winner of $1,000, but
before the other parties would hand ov-
er the amount Mr, B. was required to
demonstrate to them that he could pay
$1,000 if he had lost. He did not have
the money bat soon found a friend who
loaned him $700. ‘The party that de-
sired to buy the brewery here stepped
forward and loaned him the other $300.
As soon as they were satisfied the money
was 11 there the other sharper grabbed
itand escaped under the canvas. The
brewery buyer was horrified at the ac-
tion of his partner and promised Mr.
Burgers that he would send him a check
for the $2,000 as soon as he returned to
‘Warren, where he claimed to reside.
Burgers did not altogether beliave him
and came to Lock Havenand swore out a
warrant for their arrest Next morning
Constable Martin and Policemen Strunk
arrested them and took them before Al-
derman Harris, where they gave as their
names W. H. Harris and George Gultz.
They were sent to jail to await a hear-
Common SeNsE Justice.—The con-
fession of David Nicely serves one good
purpose in showing that innocent men
are rarely convicted under our much-
maligned jury system, and conversely,
that guilty ones rarely escape. The per-
sistence of the effort, and the ingenuity
of it, to secure the acquittal of him and
his brother were exceptional, yet all the
facts on which the effort was based were
passed upon by men of merely plain
common sense. The sticking to a com-
mon sense view of the testimony reach-
ed the truth, while attorneys, who
might be expected to take a more cor-
rect because, more critical view of it.
went far wide of the truth, as they are
quoted as having declared since the ex-
ecution that it was judicial murder. The
greatest affairs of the world are conduct-
ed by men who lay no claim to genius,
whose triumphs wher studied are seen
to be due to common sense, and there is
no reason to doubt that it secures posi-
tive justice in the courts far more fre-
quently than is supposed. Whenever
a man is said to be unjustly convicted,
it will be well to remember the loud de-
clarations of the Nicelys when face to
face with death, the equally loud decla-
rations of their advocates after the ex-
ecution, and then the confession which
brings shame to both. If it be within
reasonable possibility thata jury, and
after fit the Pardon Board, would err in
regard to the guilt of a capital crime, the
error would have occurred under the ex-
traordinary effort made to save these
A First Crass SHow.—Tuesday was
show day and Bellefonte put on her
holiday attire. At two o’clock a. m.,
the train bearing Wallace & Co.’s Great
modern shows steamed into town and
work was immediately begun on the
preperation for the day’s entertainment.
A small army of attaches came tumb-
ling out of the sleeping cars and before
long everything was bustle, but ex-
tremely orderly and quiet. Every man
seemed to know his place and that was
where he was found. The wagons and
paraphernalia were soon transferred to
the grounds, and the tents, one after
another, raised, until the whole lot was
At ten o’clock the parade was formed
and a neater, better looking street page-
ant we have never seen with any circus.
The wagons, cages, tableaux and horses
were in excellent condition,and the uni-
forms looked bright and attractive.
Three bands, a steam piano and a High-
lander with his bag pipe enlivened the
line of march with good music. Large
crowds tkhronged the streets and every
one seemed delighted.
The pertormance in the afternoon was
greeted by a fair sized audience which
showed its approval by its enthusiasm.
The actors and actresses were all stars in
their lines, and some of the specialty
features introduced were really wonder-
ful. The feats of the contortionist and
of the mar. who, while lying on his back,
juggles his boy with his feet, are simply
marvelous, and we have never seen any-
thing that compares with it. The gen-
eral cleanliness and harmonious color-
ings of the costumes were the subjects of
universal admiration, and we can say
without fear of contradiction that the
general tenor of the performance and
everything connected with this aggrega-
tion was the equal,and superior in many
respects, to either the Barnum or Fore-
paugh shows on their last visits to
To Willis Cobb, the gentlemanly and
courteous representative, we are indebt-
ed for much kindness. His solicitude
for the comfort of the press has made
him a most welcome visitor to the fra-
ternity wherever he goes. The man-
agement need have no fear of the proper
representation of their business when it
is in the hands of a man like Mr. Cobb

Limiting Population Is Bad.
President Tanier Will Give Prizes to
LonNpoN, May 17.—Great interest has
been created in the deliberations of the
French Academy of Medicine, which
has been discussing the question of pop-
ulation. France has long posed as the
chief country in Europe in which the
, various methods are employed for the
' limiting of the number of her children,
therefore the action of Dr. Tanier, the
presen of the Academy of Medicine,
as created a good deal of talk.
President Tanier is of opinion that
the limiting of population isnot an un-
mixed blessing, and that it can be car-
ried too far. Where others have put a
premium on stirpicalture he proposes one
on fructucilture, for he bas published
a promise that to the wife of every poor
man 1n his native town of Burgundy he
will give a present of 100 francs—say
$20--to each child born to her during
the course of the year 1892.
——Fish are attracted by the electric
light, the sa me as insects and birds, and

flock in great numbers.

Pursuant to resolution adopted by the Na-

has, by proclamation, set apart the 6th day of
June, 1891, as Children’s Day, and in confor-

lect the 6th day of June as Children's Day in
Pennsylvauia, and trust that all good Patrons
will so observe it as to make it also a feast day
for the Court of Flora. Let this day be made
memorable by gathering flowers and decorat-
ing our Grange ha'ls, so as to make them en-
chanted gardens. Hold meetings for the
young people, and let the hours be occupied

and a banquet for the children. I trust Pat-

strive to make it memorable in our Grange

NOTHING BUT FACTS.
If you are told that you can buy, in Cen-
tre county, a more reliable or better article
in foot wear of any description for less mon-

find it a mistake by calling and examining
their prices and stock.
years experience in
the business, in Bellefonte, has enabled
them to select goode suitable to the wants
of the people, both in price and quality.
Their stock is as large, if not the largest,
as any in the county and the shoe business
gets all their attention, and they are familiar
with all the leading manufacturers and job-
bersin the country.
Owing to these facts it is absurd to
think that any one can buy goods for less
money and consequen
tly sell for less,
