Humes StreEeT BLocKED.— Last
Tuesday the question of opening
Humes street in this borough was argu-
el in court with an adverse result. Some
time ago an ordinance was passed by
council to open a street at the eastern
line of the borough to extend from
Bishop to Curtin, and to be called
Humes street, in honor of one of our
oldest and wealthiest citizens. The
necessary preliminiares were perfected,
damages assessed, and there seemed to
be no obstacle, but when it was thought
that the new street was a fixed fact a
property holder, who would have been |
affected by the opening of the street, ap-
pealed and filed exceptions to the pro
ceedings on the ground that be had not
been notified before the ordinance was
passed. This had the effect of hanging
up the project, for the present at least,
and if the new streetis to be opened
there will have to be a new start and
the proceedings gone over again.
He Is Map Asour In.—The editor
of the Lewisburg News gives vent to bis
feelings as follows :
The bill that made Union and Sny-
der counties a separate judicial district,
where a Judge will receive $4,000 for
eight weeks work, was brought about by
the most daring manipulation ever direct
edjfrom Union county. It included bold
wire-pulling in Centre, in Huntingdon,
in Mifilin and in Snyder counties, in
which operation the forces gathered
during twenty years in the people’s ser-
vice were let loose to complete a deal
that is branded all over with infamy.
Revolutions that have made the gates
of Athens and the Eternal City tremble,
that have rent and shattered European
empires and laid waste continents, have
been caused by no greater outrage upon
the people than this unholy judicial ap-
portionment bill.
day and Wednesday of this week the
primary schools of Bellefonte closed for
the summer vacation, giving the schol-
ars a long recess until September. The
schools of Misses Laura Wright, Rosa
Fox and Carrie Weaver had the exercis-
es, usual on such occasions, on Tuesday
morning in the stone building on Alle-
gheny street. The exercises of the school
taught by Misses Ella Levy, Kate Powers
Lizzie Bottroff, Bella Rankin and Aunie
McBride came off in the High School-
room on Bishop street in the afternoon.
The scholars who participated in the
programmes acquitted themselves very
creditably, showing that the care and
attention that had been bestowed upon
them by their teachers had been attend-
ed with excellent results.
M. Wagner, chairman of the State Fire-
mens’ Association’s Committee on Trans-
portation, writes to tke Executive Com-
mittee in this city that he has secared
rates on all the principal railroads for
firemen who will attend the annual meet-
ing here injSeptember, at therate of one
and one-half cents per mile. Horses and
apparatus will be transported to and
from Lock Haven free of charge. Card
orders will be necessary in order to se-
cure these rates. Tickets will be sold
from the 12th to the 18th of September,
good to return to the 21st. This will
give all the visiting firemen an oppor-
tunity to remain in Lock Haven until
Sunday evening after the meeting.

How Sue Was CARED For.—Some
weeks ago wementioned the circumstance
of a little girl being taken from a band
of gypsies at Philipsburg, she having
been stolen by them from the neigh bor-
hood of Harrisburg. She wasin a piti-
able condition when rescued. Through
the efforts of Rev. F. J. Clerc and oth-
ers arrangements were made to send her
to school for five years. On Thursday
morning Dr: J. H. Pierce started with
the little girl for an institution of learn-
ing at Jonestown, near Lebanon, where
she will be properly trained and receive
a good education. The good people of
Philipsburg are to be highly compli-
mented for so generous an act.
Ix ExcuancEror His PATENT.--
I is said that Mr. George Rodgers, of
this place, has received an offer of a
140-acre farm, situated on the Indiana-
polis and Vincennes railroad, 55 miles
from Indianapolis in exchange {for his
patent hydrant right for several western
states. The farm offered is all under
cultivation}; there is on ita good six-
room house, barn and other outbuild-
ings, a good apple orchard and a
spring of running water. The farm is
entirely enclosed with good wire fence.
The parties offering the exchange pro-
poses establishing a large plant to man-
ufacture the hydrants for the western
Ballefonte is to havea grand Fourth of
July celebration by the military, civie |
and the firemen. Preparations are be- |
ing made to have 1t the best thing of |
the sort ever held in that borough and a |
grand time will no doubt be the result.
Ex-Governor Curtin, the “old man elo-
quent,” is to be the orator of the day.
We acknowledge receipt of invitation to
be present.— Lock Haven Democrat.
The Opera House will be the
place to spend the evening of June 24th.
One hundred and seventy-five students
from the Catholic school will entertain
a crowded house.
The Half Not Told.
Some Very Prominent Persons Mived
up With Bardsley.
PHILADELPHIA, June 6.—The half
has not been told. Day after day come
more revelations in regard to the de-
faulting city treasurer, ‘‘Ilonest” John
Bardsley. All sorts of rumors are fly-
ing and the most sensational of these is
to the effect that Bardsley will get off
with a slight sentence. That there are
inany prominent peopie who stand in
fear of Bardsley there cau be no doubt.
It is certain that every effort is being
put forth to induce him to keep silent.
At the same time exertions are being
made to shut off’ the inquiry and not to
permit it to go any further. It is said
that this i§ the latest order from Wash=
ington. Men high in national position
are given as the authority for the order
to suppress the watter. The people,
however, have become aroused, and if
the investigation is stopped there will
be great indignation and 1t is likely that
it will be shown at a public meeting.
On the occasion of his recent visit to
this city, Mr. Wanamaker remarked
that Mr. Bardsley should make a clean
breast of the matter. And now Mr.
Alexander, counsel for Bardsley, sug-
gests that Mr, Wanamaker make a clean
breast of all he knows. [Lt is asserted
that for quite a while the postmaster gen-
eral held the $125,000 worth of over-
issued stock. What he did with it or
how he got rid of it is not stated. It is
also known that Mr, Wanamaker bor-
rowed $100,000 in excess of the legal
limit. Some three months before the
bank closed Mr. Wanamaker drew out
his entire deposit. Over 2,000 deposi-
tors were allowed to go on putting mo-
ney in and they were caught, And now
comes to the startling announcement
that the judges are not untarnished. It
is stated that three of them are mixed
up in the matter. This has naturally
created a great deal of excitement and
evervbody is wondering who the three
judges are. The judges who did not
borrow are hot with indignation as the |
rumors reflect on them as much as the
guilty. It is said that one judge had |
$15,000 and another $30,000.

In Memoriam.
Nellie, eldest danghter of Thos. and Eliza:
beth Hickey, died at the residence of her par-
ents near Coleville, April 27th, 1891, aged 18
. years and 6 months. She died of consumption
and heart decease, having been afflicted
fore some time, and all that money and kind
parents and friends could do to restore her
were of no avoil. God saw flit to remove her
and take her to rest for which she so much
longed. She was only confined to her bed
two days. During that time she suffered much
but calmly and patiently submitted to Gods
will saying it will be well with me in the
morning. She said to the writer, I have suf-
fered much but my rest will be sweet. Death
was no terror to her, and was a welcome mes-
senger. When the death angel was hovering
about her she called her brother and parents
and only sister to her bedside and bid them
“the last farewell with a sweet smile upon her
countenance. When she saw them weeping
she said, *Do not weep, az I do not see any-
thing to weep about.” It was a consolation to
her heart stricken parents to know that she
was ready and willing to go,and be forever at
rest. She passed away without a struggle. She
called for fa drink and laid her head upon her
hand and fell a sleep out of which she never
Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceltl in the grave so low,
Thou no more wilt join our number,
Thou no more our griefs shalt know.
Dearest Nellie, thou hast loft us,
Where thy loss we deeply feel ;
But 'tis God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the day of life has fled;
Then in heaven with joy to greet thee,
Where no farewell tear is shed, C.5. RB.
To My Friends.
Editor of WarcnyaN:
For some time past the papers of the town
have been giving daily notices of my intention
to return to my native land—old Ireland. A
good many in the last few days have been ask_
ing me if [ was really going home, as I failed
to go with Rev. Mr. Laurie, for some reason
the report having got out that Mr. Laurie and
myself were going together this month. This
was partly true, I being deprived of this grand
| opportunity only by the reverend gentleman
being obliged to start about three weeks ahead
of me. So I will state to my many friends,and
| especially to those who don’t believe I am go-
! ing until they see me start, that I will leave
hers about the 20th or 22nd of this month, and
| will sail from New York on the 27th of June
on the City of Rome,for Londonderry, Ireland.
| From there I will have torun down the coast
only about 68 miles to Belfast, the home of my
| boyhood. When I started away from my dear
mother and father I was 17 years of age, and I
remember well the promise I made mother.
Her last request was that I should come home
! in four years. If Ilive to get to the old home
i I will have come short of my promise by about
29 years; but this does not seem long to look
back to. Very respectfully,
Tribute of Respect.

If you are told that you can bay, in Cen-
tre county, a more reliable or better article
in foot wear of any description for less mon-
ey than you can at Power's Store, you will
find it a mistake by calling and examining
their prices and stock.
years experience in
the business, in Bellefonte, has enabled
them to select goods suitable to the wants
of the people, both in price and Ty
Their stock is as large, if not the largst,
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 consequently sell for less.

Higa StreET.
The four years we have been
in business. We consider
ourselves under many obli-
gations to you for the man-
ner in which you have steed -
by. ‘us..»:But you deserve
more than thanks, and ycu
shall have it. We intend to
merit, your patronage now
more than ever.
Money is scarce—we know
it; but clothing is plenty and
we intend to put it within
reach of the very poorest.
If you want a suit for your-
self, we have everything that
is in the market. We can
give you those cheap shod-
dy goods that you see ad-
vertised for $3 and $4 per
suit: But that is” not ‘the
class of goods we want to
sell you.” We want to_sell
you strictly honest goods,
goods that will give you ser-
vice, that you will be satis-
fied with, and make you
customers of ours for ever.
Now, then, we will sell
you a suit for yourself that
is all wool for $7. And when
we say a// wool we mean it.
For your boy, if he is within
the age of 14 to 18, $5.50
will get him the same kind
of a suit. If he is within the
age of 4 and 14, and wears
short pants, $3.50 is all that
is needed.
These goods are all worth
a great deal more money
than we ask for them, but
we have got more than we
need. Some are single suits,
odds and ends, a few of them
from last season—but they
are all the greatest values
for the money that you have
ever seen, and you must see
them to get an idea how
cheap they are.
Thanking you again for
past favors, and hoping that
for your interests, as well as
ours, you will give us a call
and satisfy yourself that
there is no place in Central
Pennsylvania where you can
buy clothing cheaper than
from us.
Remain, Respectfully,
