AN ANSWER.—Some time ago the
Daily Gazette published an article cn
the dancing school and its attendants,
and as a result a number of opinions
have been expressed pro and con.
Among them we find an article which
appeared last week in the Public News,
a little paper published in West Phila-
delphia. It is replete with good sensible
views on the question and should be
read by every one, as the question is re-
ceiving considerable attention every-
where. It is substantially as follows:
An article in a Bellefonte, Pa., paper
criticising the actions of some Christians
in attending a high- toned social gather”
ing where dancing was the chief amuse-
ment, says if religion will not keep
Christians from dancing it is a complete
fizzle, The religion of Jesus Christ
will do all it claims to do. Will make
of men noble characters, elevate human-
ity, send sunshine into dark places,
cheer the broken-hearted, make life
worth living and the world better by its
infiuence upon mankind; but the reli-
gion of Christ will no¢ keep people from
dancing, will not frown upon socialen-
joyment, will not require young people
to be old, will not turn sweetness into
gall, will not deny amusement, cheerful-
ness nor happiness to God’s people. It
is not intended for that purpose. The
religion of Christ teaches that we are
placed here for a purpose. That pur-
pose is not accomplished by the people
who never smile, who see good in no-
thing, who make life a burden to every-
one; but by the people who [carry sun-
shine, enjoyment, smiles, good words
and good works with them wherever
they go. Religion does not antagonize
refinement, and one Christian lady in a
respectable dance will do more to up-
hold the principles of religion than a
heuseful of people who see no harm in
indulging in simple, silly, childish kiss-
ing games, but would be horrified at the
thought of dancing. Let people dance.
Let them laugh, sing or do whatever
their ewn common sense, or conscience
tells them to do, as long as they do not
i conflict with others, peace, or violate
God's commands. What would they
! do if Gabriel should summon them with
| their dancing garments on, asks this
i eritic ? They should be able to say
“we areready.” A Christian life should
be such that when summoned, whether
from the dance or any other place, from
pleasure or from labor, no matter where,
there will be no need of a hasty change
of garments. There is no time in the
life of a Christian that he should be
placed in such a position that the call
from Heaven would find him unprepar-
ed, and be no better prepared by an un-
necessary self denial of respectable social
enjoyments than by enjoying to the full-
est extent the short life given him in
this world. Give us Christians who,
firm in their own convictions, will go
ahead, and make the world better for
having been in it.
Tar WAY HE Fixgp Him.—A stran-
ger called upon a farmer in Buttler
county some weeks ago and for $25
painted the roof of his barn with a mix-
ture that he said would make it last
longer than the stone foundation. The
first rain washed all the paint off. Last
week he reappeared and wanted to sell
the farmer a patent corn planter. The
latter was still hot about the paint and
said he would not buy a corn planter,
but he would do a little painting at the
agent’s expense. The agent offered all
sorts of explanations, but they availed
nothing. The farmer sailed into him in
the real Butler county pugilistic style,
and in a few moments painted the agent’s
nose a beautiful carmine tint, and his
eyes a genuine blue-black. The colors
will last longer than the paint on the
During the parade of the Wallace &
Co. circus at Tyrone last Friday morn-
ing the wooden foot-bridge which crosses
the Bald Eagle creek at Hill street, gave
way and seven men were precipitated to
the creek, a distance of ten feet, A. O.
Sanders, night operator at Tipton tower,
on the Pennsylvania railroad, three
miles west of Tyrone was badly hurt.
Besides having his face cut he was badly
bruised about the body, and had to be
conveyed to his home in Huntingdon. A
man from Spruce Creek was also badly
hurt and there were several narrow
escapes from drowning. Drunkenness
reigned supreme all day and a number of
fights occurred. A woman was robbed
of her money while in the waiting room
at the railroad station, and several thefts
are reported to have been made at the
show grounds.
Pararyzep BY LieuTNING.—Dur-
ing the thunder storm Wednesday even-
ing of last week, Miss Amelia Root,
daughter of Mr. John Root, a farmer
residing in Nittany Valley, was para-
lyzed by lightning, and remained in an
unconscious condition until the next
morning. The house was not struck by
the lightning but Miss Root was affect-
ed almost as badly as though it had
been. She has since fully recovered
from the effects of the shock. None of
the other inmates of the house felt any
ill effects from the lightning.

tistics for a census directory of Centre
county. It will contain the name and

no doubt be a very valuable publication.
——John Speaks, a nineteen year old
all around colored athlete, of Altoona,
commonly known as ¢Speaky’’ died in
in the hospital, in that place, on Satur-
day. But one week before his death he
had eaten thirty-one raw eggs in seven
minutes, thus winning a wager at the
expense of his life.

committee of the Firemen’s Association
of the State of Pennsylvania for an in-
vitation to be present at the 12th annual
convention, which will be held in Lock
Haven on Sept. 15th, 16th, 17th and
18th. The people of that town are mak-
ing extensive preparations and no doubt

will be celebrated in Grace M. E.
church, at Broad and Master streets, on
Tuesday, June 9th, at high noon. A
wedding breakfast, at the Stratford,

——Quite an exciting wrestling
match took place in the carriage house
of the Brockerhoff House stable on Sat-
urday evening. Two men from the
nail and chain works were the partici-
pants and the little fellow succeeded in
giving his big opponent three very pret-
ty falls. The match was a friendly con-
test and furaished amusement for quite
a crowd of onlookers.
The death of Mr. Frank Gar-
brick, which occurred at his home, one
mile east of Zion, on Thursday morn-
ing, May 21st, removes from that com-
munity a highly respected and prosper-
ous farmer. A wife and seven children
are left. The funeral services were held
at his residence on Monday morning
and a large number of people assembled
to pay a parting tribute to a dead friend.
——On Monday morning officer Gar-
is arrested Will Walker for catching
trout on eel lines and he was held in
$100 bail for appearance at Court. He
made information against Wm.Thomas,
Chas. Ryan, Jas. Miller, Harry Houser
and A. Hull, all of whom had caught
trout on outlines. The boys have been
arrested and some discharged after pay-
ing the fine, while others have been
held for Court: Ignorance of the law
is the excuse given by all.
——On Friday morning last an acci-
dent occurred in Tyrone which might
have resulted in the loss of many lives.
A great crowd of people had gathered
on the bridge, across the Bald Eagle, at
Ridge street, to watch the parade of
Wallace & Co’s show, and the strain
being so great the bridge give way
precipitating the whole crowd into the
creek. Fortunately only two persons
were seriously hurt. The rest got their
bath a little earlier in the week than us-
ual, thats all.
——The turn-keyin the jail, at Madi-

fellow whom he thinks is John Wilson.
District Attorney Meyer has received a
letter from him giving a very minute
description, which tallies exactly with
that of the man we want, even down to
the tattoo marks on the arm, A picture
will be sent and then we will know
whether it is John Wilson or another
Will-o-the-wisp. The fellow is serving
a three months term in the jail at Mad-

of the motive department of the Norfolk
and Western railroad shops at Roanoke,
Va., a position he has held since 1883.
‘With his family he will shortly make a
trip to Europe, and on his return will
settle in Philadelphia, where, with
several of his brothers, he will engage in
the lumber and paper mill business.
——The Harrisburg Patriot of Wed-
nesday contained the following :
Representative Holt,of Centre county,
was in his seat yesterday after two or
three days’ absence. He had been at
home to attend the funeral of his daugh-
ter-in-law, Mrs. Mattie Iolt, of Snow
Shoe. Mrs. Holt was but twenty-eight
years old, and remarkably popular in
the community ia which she resided.
For several years before her marriage
Mrs. Holt had been a very successful
school teacher, and all her life had been
a consistent member of ths Methodist
church, and prominent in religious and
chantable work. Her loss is keenly felt
not only by her relatives, but all classes
of society in Centre county. Mrs. Holt
leaves a husband and five children, the
youngest but ten days old. 2

portions already that the firm feels justi-
fied in greatly increasing its stock and

land store should not lead our merchants

A Sap AccipENT.— Benjamin Perks,
one of our most worthy young men, and
a brakeman on the coal train of which
his father, Mr. James Perks, is conduc-
tor, met with a very sad accident Satur-
day morning, shortly afier 7 o'clock.
The trainmen were shifting some empty
cars on the Derby branch, and as they
neared Lancashire switch, Ben., as us-
ual, began drawing the brake. Unfor-
tunately the chain broke, and the
young man was precipitated to the
ground, his left leg falling under the
car, two wheels of which passed over
the same, crashing it a little be-
low the knee.
He was immediately brought to his
home on Fourth street, where he receiv-
ed the best of care from Drs, H. Alport
and J. W. Dunwiddie. It is feared
that it will be necessary tc amputate
the injured leg, although there may be
a possibility of saving the same, and
with this object in view Dr. Fay, of Al-
toona, one of the oldest railroad surgeons
in the employ of the company, was sent
for and is expected here on the 4:30
train to consult with the attending
physicians.— Philipsburg Journal.

A NEw SwINDLE.—DBusiness men
should keep their eyes open for several
well dressed individuals who teavel in a
buggy and who are also working the
“gkin game.” The plan on which they
operate is to offer ten dollar bills in pay-
ment for small purchases and then ask
the parties they are dealing with to take
back the small change and return the
original note and in this way make a
confusion in the change, and by the
time they are done they have swindled
you out of several dollars in change.
These fellows have been “working”
neighboring counties, and it is hard to
tell how soon they will appear in this
county to cheat the unwary.
OFF For A VisiT.—On Saturday
morning, of last week, Mr. and Mus. H.
K. Hoy departed to visit their two

Ohio, expecting to be absent several

best wishes for a pleasant visit we trust
that the young folks, who are left in
charge of things out at the homestead,
will have a good time also during the
absence of their parents.

ed to be a very good orator.
foolish young man in Williamsport
named Martin hadn’ tsense enough to be-
have himself in church and annoyed
and worried the congregation by snap-
ping parlor matches, talking loud,
laughing, etc. Now his father, an en-
tirely innocent party, will have to pay
a fine of about $50,and unless the church
people agree to settle the matter the
young man will have to pine in jail for
about three months. That's about the
size of the cost for acting like a fool in
church.—L. H. Democrat.
A BrauTiFuL FoUNTAIN. — Mr.
Frank Green has added another beauti-

in the Bush House, in the shape of an
elegant wall soda fountain. Tt is the
most complete and prettiest apparatus in

dr awn from its many little faucets are a
boon to the thirsty public.
It is one of the celebrated ‘Artic’
fountains and is mostly of Scotch gran-
ite and black slate,set off by a handsome
ebony cabinet and piere mirror, which
reaches to the ceiling. In the cabinet is
suspended a dainty fairy lamp, illumed
by electricity,and on the top is a beauti-
ful jet. The whole presents a very
handsome appearance and is an orna-
ment to the store. All the best fla-
vors are in the fountain and the drinks
which are served are most tasteful, in-
Wel Worte HEeariNG. —There
will be a lecture in the Baptist church
at Milesburg, an Friday evening, May
29th, by Rev. C. H. Fitzwilliam, of Ty-
rone. Subject, “The Battle of Life.”
The lecturer has been on the public
platform for thirteen years, and where-
ever he lectures crowded houses greet
him. The press, both in America and
England, speaks in the highest praise.
The following is what the press says
of him as a lecturer:
Mr. Fitzwilliam’s visit is hailed with
unbounded satisfaction, the Temperance
Hall being nightly crowded ; last even-
ing hundreds could not obtain admis-
sion.--- Oldham Chronicle, England.
The lecture on “The Battle of Life”
delivered by C. H. Fitzwilliam, was one
of the most eloquent and thrilling ever
delivered in this town. We consider
him the equal of John B. Gough.—7Ty-
rone Herald.
The Opera House was crowded last
night to hear Rev. C. H. Fitzwilliain
lecture. The Reverend gentleman isan
orator, dramatic at times, but pleasant
throughout.— Altoona Tribune.
WrRINKLES.—The woman with the
wrinkles in the “perfectly lovely skin
she used to have” comes to the front
more frequently with her despairing
queries than any of the afflicted. But
the oft repeated prescription of Lature’s
own cure seems to make no impression
upon her until the time of her own need
isat hand. The simplest and perhaps
the surest remedy for wrinkles is to bathe
the face in pure hot rain water,not luke
warm water, but hot, with a soft flan-
nel cloth, holding the cloth on the skin
as long as it retains the heat, and re-
eating the process many times in suc-
cession, then immediately plunging the
face in ice-cold water, which acts as an
astringent and restores the elasticity of
the skin. Eat nourishing food contain-
ing oily substance, stop worrying and
fretting, zo to sleep early at night, and
never go to sleep without removing all
the powder from the face and giving it
its bath, Gentle butbrisk rubbing with
the finger tips, marking all the lines
and rubbing in the opposite direction, is
a help, but the bath is the best. How-
ever, the best way to get rid of wrinkles
| is to avoid causing them in the first place
by constant contortion of your face in
either mirth or sadness, in eating, or in
tacing the strong light after the prover-
bial American fashion, and close your
eyes and rest your face in perfect repose
for a few minutes each morning, after-
noon and evening.

D. H. WeAvER DEAD.—On Tuesday
evening we received intelligence of the
death of Mr. D. H. Weaver, which oc-
curred at his home in Oak Hall, about
eight o’clock. The deceased was thirty-
one years of age and by hard work had
made himself known throughout the
county as a man of mark in business cir-
cles. Having purchased the flouring
mill at Oak Hall, he put in the roller
process and pushed it to the front as
a producer of the celebrated ‘“‘Miller’s
Daughter” brand.
His illness was of short duration, but
painful in the extreme, and when death
came to relieve him of his sufferings his
wife and five children were grouped
about the bedside, sorrowfully bidding
goodbye to a fond and affectionate hns-
band and father.
Funeral services were held on Thurs-
