being a few moments late, were ruled
out. They nevertheless fired up and
had steam quicker and threw a stream
farther than any engine in the contest.
They used a La France Engine and all
the others were of Silsby make.

Conference convened at 8:30 Friday
morning, and after devotional exercises,
conducted by Rev. W. Conley, of East

and first and third year courses of read-

The conference was madeup of a very
intelligent body of men and during their
stay in our town they made a lasting
impression upon every one with whom
they came in contact. If they should
ever decide to honor Bellefonte with a
return visit we feel sure that our citi-

A WEDDING AT BURNSIDE, PA.—The
hospitable home of Matthew L. Irvin,
esq, in the beautiful village of Burn-
side, situated on the North Branch
of the Susquehanna river, in Clearfield
county, was the scene of a most interest-
ing occasion, in which a number of our
Mountain City people are interested,
when on Thursday, September 17, at
high noon, their attractive daughter,
Bessie, was united in marriage to Mr,
William F. Strouse. The ceremony
was performed by the uncle of the bride,
Rev. D. M. Moser, of Shepherdstown,

struction company, now engaged in.

in the city of Baltimore, The bride is
an interesting and accomplished young
lady who will be sadly missed in her
home and among her large circle of per-
sonal friends. The bride was attended
by her intimate friend and cousin, Miss
Millie McMurray,of Burnside, Pa., and
the groom's best man was Mr. Marten,
of Philadelphia, superintendent of the
corps of civil engineers, with present
headquarters at Ebensburg, Pa.
The party, neatly attired, entered the
beautifully decorated parlor, while Mrs.
Henry Magee skillfully played the wed-
ding march on the piano, and the cere-
mony was impressively performed. An
elegant course dinner followed to which
about forty guests satdown. The bri-
dal couple, amid a shower of rice and
conventional old slippers, started on
their trip among their friends and to

ceived a postal eard from some reader of
the Warcaman advising us to correct
the railrozd time table so it will not be
the caus: of people missing trains they
intend taking. We are very sorry in-
deed .f the schedule of trains, as it ap-
pears in the WaTcHMAN, has caused in-
convenience to anyone, but we will take
this opportunity to inform them that a

vertising matter and that the Railroad
Company is always expected to order the
changes to suit their schedule of trains.

JENKINS-LUKENBACH.— The mar
riage of Harry E. Jenkins to Miss Jen-
nie Lukenbach, which was solemnized
at the home of the bride, corncr of Rey-
nolds Ave. and Willowbank St., on
Tuesday evening at eight o’clock, was a
very quiet though pretty seryice. The
Lukenbach home was tastefully decorat-
ed with potted plants and cut flowers
and presented a beautiful appearance
when the bridal party entered and took
its position in front of Rev. Miles O.
Noll, pastor of the Reformed church, of |
this place. The ceremony was soon |
over and then the happy couple received
the congratulations of the assembled
Miss Mary Whittaker, of Curwens-
ville, was bridesmaid, and John T. Fry-
berger,of Philipsburg, was best man for
the groom. Mr. Frank Lukenbach, a
brother of the bride, played the wed-
ding march from Lohengren.
A wedding supper was served by
Achenbach and the young couple de-
parted for Philadelphia and the sea
shore, to be gone about ten days.
The bride is the oldest daughter of Mr
A. Lukenbach, superintendent of Geo.
W. Jackson & Co’s Mill at this place,
and is an interesting and attractive
young woman. Her husband, the only
child of Wm. R. Jenkins, who is inter-
ested in several of the largest iron con-
cerns in the county, is one of the stead-
iest and best known young men in
Bellefonte. As the junior partner in the
Bellefonte Supply House he has won
the confidence of everyone with whom

NEARLY EscAPED —Had it not been
for the timely warning given by two
ladies, we could have headed this article
“Another Jail-bird Escapes,” but as it
is we can only tell you how nearly James
J. Mayes, the man who was brought in
from Clarence several weeks ago and
lodged in jail for shooting Alf. Lucas in
the leg and resisting an officer, came to
effect his liberation from jail.
It is customary for the Sheriff to
leave the prisoners out in the jail yard
every few days in order that they can
exercise and get a breath of fresh air.
On Tuesday afternoon Deputy George
Crawford turned them all out and they
went to playing games and amusing
themselves in various ways. All after-
noon they remained in the yard and
just when it was getting dusk Mayes
quickly climbed onto a porch roof
which stands in the yard, and placing a
scantling against the wall, reached the
top. There he laid flat dowa for several
moments so that Mrs. Harvey Benner
and Mrs. Baney, who were sitting on
their porch just opposite the jail, would
not see him, but they did see him, and
just when he was about to jump down
outside,one of the ladies ran and shouted,
while the other called the Sheriff.
Mayes scrambled back and jumped
down inside where he was identified.
ANorHER ~~ WEDDING.—At three
o'clock Thursday afternoon, Rev. Miles
O. Noll, of the Reformed church, pro-
nounced the ceremony which made Har-
ry E.Johnston and Sadie J. Walkey man
and wife. The marriage was celebrated
at the home of the bride, 14 west Logan
street, where the immediate friends and
relatives of the two young people as-
sembled to witness it.
The house was handsomely decorated
for the occasion, and everything passed
oft with that easy grace and charm
which characterize such events and
make them beautiful and impressive.
The bride is the only daughter of Mr.
Henry Walkey, of this place, and is a
bright and vivacious young lady. Har-
ry Johnston, the groom, is the third son
of Mr. J. T. Johnston, ex-post master of
Bellefonte, and is a young man of mark-
ed ability in his profession, that of an
electrical engineer. For some time he
has been employed in Altoona, whither
he will take his bride, after a short tour,
to enter a cosy nest which he has al-
ready prepared. May the future of the
young couple always be as bright and
gladsome as was their wedding day.

broken out at Greensburg and much
alarm is felt. Deaths from diphtheria
are frequent. It is expected the schools
will be closed. In Bunker Hill, a sub-
urb, some of the citizens have left with

school children several eases of both dis-
eases are reported, and a number of
deaths have occurred. At Latrobe,
Jeannette, Irwin and other towns in
Westmoreland county, the diseases are
prevalent, and in some of the coke towns
along the Sewickley road a great many
deaths have occurred.
A PECULIAR CATTLE DISEASE.—
About two weeks ago a singular and un-
identified disease began playing havoc
with cattle in Huntingdon county. It
first made its appearance in Oneida
township, just north of Huntingdon,
among the cattle of Jacob Prough, and
very soon communicated with the cattle
of his neighbor, B. S. Fouse, and up to
last accounts these two farmers lost
about a dozen head cf valuable stock.
Other farmers in the neighbarkaad
are complaining of similar losses, and
thus far there has beeg no means found
to either alleviate the sufferings of the
afflicted cattle or cure the disease. When
Arst seized with the complaint the ani-
mal apparently shows a helpless weak-
ness in the neck; the ears droop, the
head falls helplessly, ang tha lower jaw
rests on the ground. The legs of the af-
ficted animal &lso ¢d3w a weakness,
and in a short fime the animal becomes
prostrated. Theeyes become glassy and
It is believed by many of the farmers
that the diseaseis a form of the Texas
spleenic fever and was brought into the
county through the importation of
southern cattle. In elmost every in-
stance the disease haa shus far proven
fatal. The farmers arg strongly consid-

dy to abate, if not gpadicate, the dis-

One of the growing industries of the

bright indeed, is the Oak Hall Woolen
Mills, operated by Mr. T. V. Hunter, of
Boalsburg. For several years past Mr.
Hunter has had control of this plant
and by means of constant improvements
he is making it a factory of great value
to the community. All kinds of wool-
en goods and yarns are kept on hand
and can be seen by calling at the mills
or sending for samples, and the highest
cash price is always paid for wool. Mr.
Hunter is building up a nice trade in his
line and we wish him success,

This year her crop of peaches has ex-

reaching the high figure of 140,000
crates. Penusylvania is a State well
adapted to fruit growing and it would
be well if the example of Juniata were
followed in other counties.
