AN OpricaL DEerbsioN.—A Clay
county paper tells the latest corn story :
«A farmer raised one thousand bushels
of popcorn and storad it in his barn.
The barn caught firs. The corn began
to pop and filled a ten acre field. An
old mare in the neighboring pasture who
had defective eyesight saw the corn and
thought it was snow and laid down and |
froze to death.
Horses StoLEN.—On Saturday night,
November 14th, two horses were stolen
from the stable of Orlando Wagoner,
one mile below Dublin Mills, in Fulton
county. One, a brown horse, is four
years old and has a little white on hind
pastern. The other, a dark brown ware,
is six years old but has no marks. $50
reward is offered for the recovery of tne
horses and ihe capture of the thief.
——- A letter from Harry Bush gives
quite a realistic account of his thrilling
experience while canoeing down =a
Washington river, during a flood.
Harry is on a U. S. Geodetic surveying
corps and is having a great time on the
Pacific slope. His canoe ride the other
day was over fifty miles down a swollen
river and many places the walls of the
canon, through which it coursed, rose
to the height of one hundred feet. Im-
agine if you can how scared they must
have been when every moment might
have been their last.
A Frrrineg RecoaNITION.—In recog-
nition of the great services rendered the
College, by Mr. W. J. Candy during
the recent burning of the big barn, the
Board of Trustees has voted her a re-
ward of $20.00. Mrs. Candy, as soon
as she noticed that the building was on
fire, rushed into the stables and unchain-
ed the whole herd of cows. If it had
not been for her timely action itis al-
together probable that the entire herd
would have perished. Mrs. Candy is |
the wife of the dairyman at the College i
and her presence of mind saved the In-
stitution a valuable lot of cows.
A Cosy PrLACE.—Several weeks ago
we mentioned the fact that the Bush
House office was undergoing extensive
improvements. They are, completed
now and the traveling public is received
in one of the handsomest and cleanest
looking hotel offices we have ever seen.
The wood work has been painted a
pure white and varnished. The walls
are covered with beautiful white and
gold paper and a metallic ceiling in buff
and old blue completes a most pleasing
effect. Comfortable oak chairs are seat-
tered about over the tiled floors and the
guests of the big hotel have every con-
venience to make their sojourns pleas-
ant. Mine host Daggett is bound to
make a success of his hostlery if he con-
ducts things in such a liberal manner.
Howxors For CENTRE CoUNTY.-~The
Governor of California, a few days since
appointed to the bench of the Superior
Court of that State—one of the most
honorable positions within the gift of the
Uommonwealth-—Hon. Chas. W. Slack,
whose {father was a former citizen of
Potters Blills, and many of whose rela-
tives] are now honored citizens of this
county. Uriah Slack, father of the new
Judge, married Catharine Straly of Mil-
roy, Mifllin county, about the year
1844. He left Potters Mills in the
spring of 1849, taking his wife with him.
They were six months in crossing the
plains, and finally settled in Sun Luis,
Obispo county, California. Mrs. Slack
returned to this country in the spring of
’58, and shortly after her arrival at the
home of her father, the subject of this
notice was born. Sie remained among
Pennsylvania at the Fair.
Unique Things to be Seen—Purposes
of the Stale Building.
About fifty application have been
filed at the office of Executive Commis
sioner Benjamin Whitman, of the
board of World's Fair managers, by
Pennsylvania manufacturers, for space
at the Columbian Exposition, and num-
erous inquiries are daily coming in,
showing an interest all over the State.
In a short time circulars will be sent
to the manufacturers in the State rated
sufficiently high, inviting them to ex-
hibit their products. This is expected
to increase the interest already shown,
and favorable results are anticipated.
Applications have been received
from one ot the leading railroads, two
or three extensive manufacturers of ag-
| ricultural implements, two large cigar
manufacturers, a tool and machinery
company, one of the largest manufae-
turers of fancy cakes in the country,
and perhaps a dozen various lines of
industries. Arrangements have been
made by an extensive manufacturer of
sawmill and sawmill machinery to set
up a complete set of machinery in a
building to be erected for that purpose.
The oil region is preparing to make
an extensive exhibit of the oil and gas
industry. This will be in charge of
ex-Senator Lewis W.Emery and James
M. Guffey.
A general opinion prevails that the
proposed Pennsylvania building is for
State displays. This is a mistake.
This building is intended for the com-
fort and convenience of the visitors to
the exposition from this State ; a place
to rest, meet their friends, put away
wraps—in fact, a club house. It has
been suggested that a portion of the
building might be used to good advan-
tage for the State’s historical and arch-
ological display. On its walls could
be hung the portraits of Pennsylva-
nia's Governors, the Penn Charter and
docaments relating to the'early history
of the State, #
All exhibits that come in line of
competition must be located in some
one of the general exposition buildings
and be grouped according to the offi:
cial classification. Exhibitors will
not be charged for space.
Dignity that is Easily Supported.
Ex-Representative Gibson, of Mary-
land, is a candidate for Clerk ot the
House. When the idea of the clerk-
ship first came into Mr. Gibson's mind
it was received with some doubt. Did
it comport with the dignity of a mem-
ber of the Fifiy-first Congress to an-
nounce himself a candidate for the
clerkship of the Fifty-second? That
question Mr. Gibson considered for
some time before he acted. Some of
his frends were consulted by him, and
they have varying advice. At length
Mr. Gibson applied to Judge Culberson.
“What's that you say, Gibson ?”
drawled the great commoner, of Texas,
as if he had not rightly understood the
“I want to ask, Judge,” replied the
Marylander, “if you think it would be
inconsistent witn the digmty of a
member of the Fifty-first Con gress to
become a candidate for Clerk of the
next House ?”
, “H-m,” said Judge Culberson, as he
pondered on the question. Then he
delivered himself slowly and solemaly :
“(iibson, in my time ['ve seen an
ex-member of Congress cleaning spit-
toons at the other end of the Capitol.
I’ve also seen an ex-member of Con-
gress packing seeds for $1,25 a day ov-
erat the Agricultural Department. And
down in my country ['ve kaown an
ex-Congressman to go around exhibit
ing a siud horse. No, Gibson, I don’t
think there will be any sacrifice of
dignity in your becoming a candidate
for Clerk.
A Heroic Death,
WiLkEs-BARRE, Nov. 18.--Napoleon
De Montague, a French miner employ-
ed in one of the Plymouth mines, was
killed under sad circumstances yesterday
He had fired a blast when a spark from
the same seta pocket of gas on fire.
There was no immediate danger, but
Montegue thought ‘the fire would
spread and endanger the lives of six
hundred men. Ho at once took off his
cout and started to beat out the fire with
his garment. He succeeded, but before
he could get back in his breast the roof
fell in, crushing him to death.
He was well educated, being the son
of a distinguished Frenchman who was
banished from his native land forty
years ago. He settled in Canada. Re-
verses came, the son came tu the coal

she returned to her hore in California. |

Mormonism Near Franklin,
A case of destitution and brutality
was discovered in President township, i
Venango county on Tuesday last. A
man who is scarcely able to tuke care of |
himself kus been ruaning a sort of Mor- |

keptup two separate households, with an |
alleged wife at the head of each, despite
the protests of his neighbors, Yesterday |
his thirteen year old daughter by wife
No. 1 appeared at the house of a neich-
bor and asked for food to keep her moth-
er from starving. The neighbor accom. |
panied the child home, and the scene of |
destitution which greeted her was al- |
most beyond belief. Wife No. 1 was |
very sick, actually starving to death.
The eabin, which issituated in a dense |
wood, is destitute of the common neces- |
saries of lite, and the woman and her
children had been without food for many
days. She had for montbs lived on tur- |

“Two guineas for first lesson,” said the

Hundred Such Exzhibits—Some of the
isted in Secret for Years, in Trouble.
Cincinvari, Nov. 16.—Yesterday
morning Dr. T. W. Van Vieck was ar-
rested for issuing bogus diplomas for
money, permitting the holders to prac-
tice medicine. The institution which
issued the diplomas and of which Van
Vleck is the president, has helda char-
ter for.nine years and had existed in
secret during that time, It was known
as the Medical University of Ohio. It
has no building and ro lectures are
It is not known how many diplomas
were issued in this manner, but it has
been learned that burial permits have
been issned by persons holding such
diplomas. Van Vleck’s charges for a
diploma varied from $500 down to a
few dollars. The reporter making the
investigation obtained a diploma for a
small sum. Van Vleck was released
last night on $1,000 bail.

A Properly Dressed Man.
According to the best fashion papers the well dressed
man of to-day wears a three, or four buttoned, cutaway
sack coat, single breasted vest, buttoned slightly higher
than they have been worn during the summer and
trousers of medium width. In colors, the different
shades of brown are selling fastest, though very fashiona-
ble people are wearing many light fabrics.
Hats are large in shape, and lower in the crown than
they have been for some time, with rather wide, slightly
curling brims. Black and brown being the most popu-
lar colors for both business and dress.
In scarfs : delicate shades of blue and brown are very
much worn, but, for those, who can wear them, the bril-
liant reds add great beauty when worn with the popu-
lar wood brown suitings. The large puffs, ascots and
four in hands are popular, though English bows are
much worn by those who profess to be leaders.
In collars the self rolling medium heighth styles are
proper while cuffs are linked, with square corners.
The above is a complete description of what you should
wear if you care to be in style, and why not be dressed
properly when it zosts just as little. Go to M. Fauble’s
Rochester Clothing House and you can get all of these
articles for the wonderfully small sum of $14,00. Amaz-
ing ain’t it ? True nevertheless !
