was lucky in the circumstance that it
R. Hicks prophecy for August, to be
printed in the forthcoming issue of
World and Works, is as follows: At-
mospheric and electrical disturbances
during the closing dys of July will
have subsided, leaving the weather fair
and moderate during the opening days
of August. A storm period is central
on the 4th, calling for rising tempera-
ture about the 3d which will grow in
intensity until the heat is modified by
the passage of northwesterly storms on
the 4th, 5th and 6th. The new moon
on the 4th will tend to precipitate the
disturbance within 36 hours of noon on
that date, increasing any earthquake
tendencies otherwise existing. Normal-
ly, fresher, cooler air should follow until
we approach the 10th, which with the
11th; call for very high temperature,
with reactionary storms, reaching east-
ern sections into the 12th. Lower tem-
perature should follow.
The 15th is the central day of the
next storm period. Five days is the
average life of a storm period, the tem-
perature always rising and the wind
current shifting to easterly and souther-
ly during the first half of the period.
By the central day, storm conditions, as
a rule, are ripe in the west, and during
the last half of the period they move
across the continent to the east. Low
temperature and high barometers break
down in front of advancing storms and
follow in the reverse order in the rear.
Stortns, therefore, with very high tem-
perature, may be looked for from August
15 to 17. After this cooler days and
nights will follow to 20th, on which
date and the 21st reactionary tempera-
ture and storms will appear. Cooler to
about the 26th.
The last storm period for August is
from the 25th to 26th. The 27th is the
central day. Many parts suffering with
heat and drought may look for partial
relief through the disturbances at this
period. The month will end with a fair,
bright day and cool night.
and drought as was expected, but very
serious complaints are reaching us from
numerous extremes.
but by the end of August all will feel
many parts of the eastern hemisphere to
the verge of famine and want.
—The Lock Haven Ezpress, of a few
days after the railroad wreck at How-
ard, says;
“Express agent C. E. Waite, who was
injured so badly in the wreck near How-
ard yesterday morning, was resting
comfortably this morning. Fireman
Spiker is able to be about his house,
and aside from a general soreness of his
whole body is feeling very comfortable.
The gashes in his scalp were numerous
and fifty-two stitches wererequired to
close them. Mr. Spiker says he was
shoveling coal into the furnace as the
engine was rounding the curve east of
Howard, and hearing two sharp blasts of
the whistle dropped his shovel and step-
ped into the cab. Waite was seated on
his side of the engine. He had hardly
stepped into the cab when the engine
left the track. He grasped the cab
above his window, and a moment later
was sent flying among the pieces of the
cab which was broken to splinters, As
soon as he was on his feet he hurried to
the assistance of engineer Wood, who
was buried under the coal, but who was
soon removed and lived for nearly an
hour after the accident.”
—Dr, H. W. Buckingham met with a
misfortune Wednesday evening that
will disable him for several weeks.
Returning from a professional eall about
10 o'clock he was in the act of getting
out of his buggy at Henderson & Co.’s
livery stable, when his left foot caught
in the lap robe and the right, failing to
clear the wheel, caught between the
spokes, breaking his right leg about four
inches above the ankle. The Dr., who
belongs to the medical staff at the Cot-
tage Hospital, and knowing the ex-
cellent treatment patients receive at that
institution, expressed a desire to be ta-
ken there. He was taken to the hospi-
tal and his injuries properly dressed by
Drs. H. Allport and Warren Andrews.

SHoT BY A Dog.—Last Sunday even-
ing William Wayman, of Williamsport,
aged 21, was shot and seriously wound-
ed in a most singular manner,
Another young man had been
shooting rats, and had placed his gun on
the ground while playing with a dog. In
jumping around the dog stepped on the
trigger, exploding the gun, the bullet
from which passed through Wayman’s
right lung, and lodged near his heart.
Owing to the location of the ball the
physician did not consider it policy to
probe for it. His chances for recovery
are believed to be shim.

DeAra To THE CANINES.—The dog
poisoner has certainly been getting in
his work, as about eight or ten dogs have
died from the effects of poison within
the past few days. Jake Cohn lost his
beautiful large English mastiff, on Sat-
urday, also Charles Hull lost a good fox

but instead he seems bent or killing the
best ones. The poisoner had better keep
a sharp lookoat, for if caught it will go
bard with him.— Tyrone Herald.
great American institution, the picnic,is
now upon usin dead earnest, and will
blossom for a couple months. Take a
full fledged picnic, one that is festooned
with a brass band, seasoned with chats,
laughter and hearty games, embellished
with pratty girls and maidens, and fres-
coed with oranges, cake, and ice cream,
and it is quite an elaborate affair and
productive of much pleasure and enjoy-
ment. Itdoes the little folks good and
invigorates the older ones, while the
singing birds, green woods, pure air and
health giving sunshine tend io refresh,
refine and to make us ail better, point-
ing us to the higher power whence cometh
these many blessings. Yes, we welcome
the picnic, we enjoy it, we revel in it.
A NEW PLAGUE.—A new insect has
made its appearance in some sections of
the State, and for want of a better name
it has been christened the ‘‘potato
louse.” Tt is a worse pest thun the po-
tato bug, for the bugs can be shaken off
the potato stalks, but not so with the
louse. + Paris green will kill the bug,
but does not seem to have any effect on
the louse. The farmers have tried many
ways to get rid of the insect, but so far
have not succeeded. The louse is very
small, so small as to be hardly visible to
the naked eye, and they cover the pota-
to leaves so that scarcely any of the leaf
can be seen. They eat the leaf, and in
a few days it will wither. It does not
take long for the insect to destroy acres
of potatoes.
At that rate circuses are so cheap that |
players pulled themselves together on
Wednesday afternoon and treated the
small audienceat the Ball Park to a
streak of batting and fielding which has
seldom, 1f ever, been equaled on a
Bellefonte diamond.
The P. BR. R. team, of Harrisburg,
were the victims but when it was an-
nounced that Gamble,the crack ex-Inter
State League pitcher, would occupy the
box for them, the most sanguine prediz-
ted another defeat, but t’was not so, for
our men had put on their batting clothes
and even if they didn’t look very gay in
them, we'll forgive it for the way they
jumped onto Gamble. It was exhilera-
ting indeed to sce big Bobby McKnight
and little Pat. Rine lining out singles
and capering around the bases. = It was
new to them. It was new to us.
.Petriken.Quigley and Atherton led the
batting for Bellefonte,but we're sorry to
say the visitors were without a leader, for
Atherton had them at his mercy and
when he didn’t strike them out they
popped up little flies which our fielders
took with an ease that was wonderful.
For the home team we cannot pick
outone man who pluyed better than an-
other, and the play of the visitors was
characterized by stupidity throughout.
The score by innings was as tfoliows :

On Wednesday morning last the little
English hamlet, called Keystone Hill,
near Philipsburg, was the scene of a
double tragedy which in all probability
will result in a murder and suicide.
Reuben Wilkings and John Wilson
are Englishmen and fast friends. «. Both
came to this country about four years
ago, Wilson paying Wilking’s pas-
age. Wilkings is unmarried and has
made his home with Wilson's family.
Recently reports reached Wilson's
ears that a criminal intimacy existed be-
tween his wife and Wilkings, and
while he did not believe the rumors to
have any foundation in fact, he told his
wife that she had better tell Wilkings
to leave and in that way stop the talk,
She did not do so, however, but said
that her husband should tell him to leave.
The charges were repeated,and again he
asked kis wife to give Wilkings his walk-
ng papers; that he could not do so
owing to his old friendship.
Wednesday morning Mrs. Wilson told
‘Wilkings of the report,and asked him to
leave. He expostulated, and words fol-
lowing, he picked up a piece of a base
ball bat, and while the woman was
combing her hair in front of a looking-
glass, struck her on the back of the
head. The woman staggered a few
steps and fell out of the door into the
yard. Her skull is badly fractured.
‘Wilkings stood for a moment con-
templating the deed he had committed,
and believing that he had killed the
woman, took a razor and cut his throat
from ear to ear, severing the wind-
pipe, though not the jugular vein.
Wilkings was arrested and is now in
the Cottage hospital for treatment.
The woman is in a very critical condi-
tion and with little hopes of her recov-
ery. Wilkings age is about 84.
Mrs. Wilson is 31 years of age.
TractiON ENcINEs.—The business of
McCalmont & Co., of this place, dealers
in agricultural supplies, have, of course,
felt the beneficial effects of theabundant
harvest of this year and the consequent
prosperity of the farniers. There was no
limit to the amount of birder twine they
sold, and the big harvest has also had
the effect of increasing their sale of trac-
tion engines and separators. These ma-
chines have become indispensable in pre-
paring the wheat crop for market and
are an evidence of the advancement of
agricultural science. During the past
two months McCalmont & Co.
have sold three traction engines, three
separators and one portable engine,
which indicates the preparations that
are being made for handling the big
wheat crop of this county.
Myers died at his son-in-law’s, July 18,
1891, aged 84 years, 9 months and 26
days. He, with his wife, Sarah, joined
the United Brethren church and were
baptized in 1833 at McCulnstown, Pa.
He lived, labored and sacrificed for God
and the church of his choice for more
than 58 years. He wasa man true to
his convictions of duty and was univer-
sally respected, He was the father of
nine children, of which only three re-
main with their families and a large cir-
cle of friends to mourn his death. His
wife and six children preceded him to
the better land. His funeral sermon
was preached by Rev. G. W. Emin-
hizer, and his remains were interred in
the old cemetery at Zion where he rests
from his labors.

of Howard, had a sad experience
in this place last Friday. Soon
after arriving here he commenced sam-

Racket store. The proprietors handed
him over to the police who took him be-
fore magistrate Foster, and the result was
a fine and costs amounting to $4.50.

this county it will not be because there
are not suitable sites.
A Lost Sark Founp.—In the big
flood of June 1st, 1889, the store of T.
J. Smull, at Mackeyville, Clinton coun-
ty, was washed away and with it the
fourteen hundred pound safe and con-
tents. Tuesday the safe was found
about a quarter of a mile from where it
had been lying underneath the water
from June 1st, 1889, until July 28,1891.
It was, however,of no value, as the
door was broken off and the contents

now in process of construction on the
Chest creek, and will be a competing

not known at present how much further
the road will extend, but rumors say it
will connect with the Baltimore and
Ohio either at Johnstown or Fitisburg.

which was full of boiling coffee, it fell

the floor, scalding the poor little fellow
upon the face, breast, back, and in fact
all over his body. Drs. Dunwiddie and

natural instinct, he writes about Irish
politics. ‘Who ever knew an Irishman
that wasn’t a born politician ? He has
been taking a survey of the political
status in the Emerald Isle and says that
from what he has observed among the
Irish voters and read in the Irish jour-
nals, it is his conviction that Home Rule
is doomed for the next fifty years. Noth-
ing has had a greater effect in bringing
about this situation than the personal
conduct of Mr. Parnell. Itis a pity
that it is so.
