CouncrL PROCEEDINGS. —-At the meet-
ing of council on Monday evening Chas.
Callaway 2nd George Bush protested
against the erection of any oil tank in
the rear of thie Bush House.
The Water committee reported every-
thing in readiness for the new pump;
that the contract for furnishing the fix-
tures for the same had been awarded to
Jenkins & Lingle ; that the Court House
iron fence had been purchased, with
which to surround the Spring, with a
chance to sell the fence that is now
around the Spring, &e.
The Fire and Police committee re-
commended the allowing of Hoover &
Miller to erect their oil tank, but the
matter was allowed to fall under the
provisions of the ordinance against such
oil tanks.
The offer of Mr. Cunningham to put
down a crossing from Brockerhoff House
to First National bauk, the sweet com-
mittee reported favorably, and council
agreed to let Mr. Cunningham put it
down on the terms offered.
Mr. Williams reported a nuisance in
the shzpe of men, entirely nude, going
in swimming in the old car works dam.
Afr. Hillibish reported that the Water
committee estimated their expense for
the picsent year at seven thousand dol-
lars. The Finance committee recom-
mended that recognition be taken of the
water committee’s estimate.
Council voted to accept the invitation
of the Fourth of July committee to be
present at the celebration on the Fourth
of July.
A number of bills were approved and
the council adjourned.
CoxvenrtioN.—The annual convention
of the Altoona District of the Alleghe-
ny confenence of the United Brethren
church, was held at Julian, June 9th,
10th and 11th inst. Rev. J. F. Tall-
helm, of Julian, Presiding Elder of the
District, presided during the session of
the convention. Rev. H. T. Denlinger,
of Williamsport, was elected reporter for
the Conference Journal.
The following subjects were discuss-
ed during the convention: “The object
of a Sunday School Convention ;”’ ‘‘the
Sunday School Superintendent's charac-
ter and qualifications ;”’ “what is the
proper use of lesson help$ ;7’ “the duties
of the Church to the Sunday School ;”'
“the duties of the Sunday School to the
Church ;” the duties of pastor to the
Sanday School ; “the object of Sun
day School instruction ;’ “the teachers’
qualification ;”’ “the claims of the
Sunday Schovl upon the pastor ;”’
“the young people’s society of Christian
Endeavor, its views, its relations to the
church; “its claim upon the pastor.”
The following ministers were present
and took part in the discussions: Rev’s
T. P. Orner, C. W. Wasson, A. David-
gon, W. A. Jackson, Geo. Noden, John
Craig, G. W. Eminhizer, J. F. Tall-
helm, H. T. Denlinger, W. Cramer and
B. J. Hummel ; also Rev. J. C. Young
of the M. E. church. The convention
was a success in every particular.
A Sparrow ExrcurEp.—The Lock
Haven Democrat vouckes for the truth of
the following story about the execution
of a sparrow in that place. . Maybe the
bird that was thus capitally punished
was the sparrow that killed Cock Ro-
bin years ago and had confessed the
murder or been convicted on evidence
recent divulged. The following is the
story :
“Under the eves of the Schroeder
building on Main and Vesper streets,
there is a bird box, which is inhabited
by sparrows, and this morning the birds
coolly and deliberately hung one of their
number, for some offense, suspending it
by the neck uctil death ensued. After
death the birds then tried, as it were, to
cut their dead companion down and
picked its neck in their efforts to do so
until it was much mutilated. They
failed to accomplish their object, how-
ever, and the body was removed by one
of the spectators. Mr. Drake, the oil
man, was one of the persons who wit-
nessed the entire procedure. The birds
had a thread around the culprit’s neck
and he was executed in first class style,
hanging down several inches below the
bird box.”
It is a satisfaction to believe that in
the Cock Robin murder ease justice has
at last been vindicated and the offender
brought to punishment.
Resolution of Thanks,
Minessura, June 10th, 1891.
By a resolution, wa, the members of Dr.
Geo. Li. Pottar, Post No. 261, desire to express
our mogt sincere thanks to the following per-
sons and organizations who so greatly assisted
. in making our service a success on Memorial
Day :
First to the speakers, to the Rev. Fitz Wil.
liams, of Tyrone, who poke at Curtin and at
Milesburg ; to the Rev. Koons, who spoke at
the Advent cemetery ; to Li. I. Eddy and choir
for their excellent vocal music at Milesburg 3
o the dram corps, which furnished martial
music for the day; to the ministers of the
churches, the Sabbath schools and the child-
ren, for their bountiful supply of flowers; to
W. R. C. No. 3, and other ladies of the place,
who furnished luncheon for the Post; to the I

E. H. Carr, Wm. M. Adams, sr, Wm Adams,

Nouwithstanding the sound logie, the keen
wit and the flow of eloquence which impressed
the large audiences at lyceum recently the
greal question, “Was Calhoun’s dog’s tail real-
ly cutoff ?” is still undecided.
The inventive genous of Thomas McCoy
often saves him a great deal of annoyance.
As an instance, he answered nearly nine hun-
dred anticipated questions last week by sim-
ply putting the following inscription on an old
hack that was brought to his shop : “This
vehicle was left here by Johnny Stere. He
bought it of Waite in Belletonte. Don't know
what it cost ; don’t know what he will do with
it ; nor don't care.”
Unionville has more retired school teachers
than business men ; which circumstance may
conduce to our future welfare, since education
improves the morals, feeds the soul and trans-
ports many men to elysian Canada. A few of
us are vulgarly inclined only to accumulating
money, but we feel an excruciating com fort
basking in the reflection of culture.

posed that providence would create a species,

from flood time to the present, just for the fun

has a higher mission. What is he todo? He
is to grin, wink, kick, bdx, swear, dance,
snicker, gossip, quarrel, use slang, trade hats,
write autographs, suggest new laws, crit:

boys, slop the sidewalks, discover maudlin at-

new forms of government, speculate on the
natureof hell and illustrate how to get there.

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 stood
by us. But you deserve
more than thanks, and you
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 all 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.
