this issue of all the persons, in Belle-
fonte and vicinity, who are either suf-
fering with the grip or recovering from
an attack of it, there would not even be
room for advertisements.
—Robert Gordon, a Williamspory,
colored man, made the horrible discov-

Monday morning, that his wife was
burned to a crisp. The lamp had ex-
ploded with fatal results.
——“Florida on wheels,” a rolling

issue of the 8th. No evidence whatever
of mal-treatment, was found and the
unfortunate parent is thus cleared of
the terrible charges imputed to him.
——The new Presbyterian church, at
Milesburg, was opened, on Sunday, un-
der very favorable auspices, Many peo-
ple were present to join in the services,
incident to the opening of the hand-
some little brick structure for religious
weorship,and the services were entertain-
ing as well as beneficial. It is not defi-
nitely known when the church will be
dedicated, but the time for its consecre-
tion to God is thought to be not far in
the future.
—The prophesy “a green christmas
makes a fat grave yard” seems to be
only too true with this season, and
scarcely ‘a day passes that we do not
hear of seme one or more sad deaths.
Mark Williams, one of the oldest resi-
dents of the county, died, in his eighty-
seventy year, at his home near Axe
Mann, on Jan. 5th. His death removes
from that community a man whose hon-
orable, and upright life set a beautiful
example for all those with whom he
came in contact. The funeral services
were conducted by Rev. Leidy, pastor of
the Methodist church at Pleasant Gap,
on Thursday morning of last week and
a large concourse of mourners held re-
quiem over the remains of the departed.
For sixty years he had been a consistent
member of the Baptist church. Inter-
ment was made in Union cemetery, in
this place.

sudden demise. Interment was made at
Roland, on Sunday. .
* *
On Saturday James Hamilton,a broth-
er of Thad Hamilton of this place, died
at his home in Driftwood and was
brought here for burial, on Tuesday.
His aged mother lives at No. 24 east
Howard street and the death of so prom-
ising a son was a sorrowful blow to her.
Bellefonte was visited by the dark
messenger, on Sunday evening, and the
spirit of Mrs. Keenan, relict of Patrick
Keenan, was wafted to its eternal home.
Deceased was a consistent member of
the Catholic church and had lived most
of her seventy-eight years in this place.
The funeral was held from the home of
her son-in-law, Mr. John Powers, on
north Spring street, on Wednesday
SY *
Old Mr. Abraham Hicks, one of the
most venerable and respected residents
of Patton township, died, in his 72nd
year, at his home, at Scotia, on Sunday.
His death was superinduced by an acci-
dent which betell him several years ago
and was very unexpected. Mr, Hicks
was on of the old school of gentlemen.
Obliging to a fault and every solicituous
for the welfare of his friends. A wife
and several married children survive
Mrs. Elizabeth Murray a very old
lady who lived along the Buffalo Run
road, just below Matternville, died on
Sunday also,and her death removes from
that community one of its oldest women.
Her husband Mr. Peter Murray died
nearly thirty years ago and two daugh-
ters, Misses Catharine and Mary, mourn
the loss of their tender hearted and lov-
ing old mother.
The bright little son of Mr. A. L.
Bennett, of Scotia, died early on Sunday
——J. M. Thompson Esq., of State
College, was in town on Thursday and
dropped in to see us. He is doing a
nice real estate and fire insurance busi-
ness at the College and has his office in
the Buck building, on College avenue,
—— Mr. and Mrs. William Robinson,
who lately moved from Bellefonte to Snow
Shoe Intersection, are one of the oldest
married couples in this county. Mr.
Robinson will be eighty four years old
the 10th of next month, and his wife,
who was Miss Mary Glenn, is seventy-
eight. They are both as active as the
average man of sixty. Mr. Robinson
thinks nothing of a walk four or five
miles in an afternoon while just two
weeks ago he made two splint brooms
for his daughter. “Aunt Mary” has
not time to think of growing old with
her knitting, housework and visiting
the sick. :
——The Nebraska State Journal,
published an extra edition in the inter-
est of educational advantages in and
about the city of Lincoln,and contains a
pleasing notice of the Rev. Mr. Hewitt,
tormerly rector of the Episcopal church
in this place,who is rated as one of the
foremost educators of that prosperous
city of 60,000 inhabitants. Mr. Hewitt
has not only been instrumental in build-
ing up one of the most prominent
churches in the state of his adoption ;
but has undertaken and succeeded in es-
tablishing a Military Academy that is
the only classical and commercial pre-
paratory school under military dicipline
in the Missouri Valley. Trinity Hall
is beautifully situated on a slight eleva-
tion,north of the city,and while it is un-
der the patronage of the Episcopal
church of Nebraska, it is owned and
controlled by Mr. Hewitt’s Parish, Holy
Trinity. The building itself would be
an ornament to any town. East or
west, and the ain: and purpose of pro-
Jectors are such that Lincoln, the city of
schools, can well be proud of its latest
addition to the cause of higher educa-
tion. Mr. Hewitt has the best wishes
of many friends in this community, who
hope that success and health may be
with him in his wider work.
A SAD AcCIDENT.—One of the daily
papers last week made the statement
that more men had lost their lives, dur-
ing the year of '91, on the railroads of
the United States, than on the battle-
field of Gettysburg, and from the num-
curred in this community recently,
we truly believe that the paper has
in no wise exaggerated facts. On
Tuesday evening the people of this place
were shocked to bear of the terrible ac-
cident at Centre Hall, which resulted in
the instant death of B. Frank Cocper,
the-conductor of the freight train, which
rans between Sunbury and Bellefonte.
It seems that a stock car had to be left
on a siding near the station, and ccn-
ductor Cooper called to Dan Cowher,
the brakeman, not to come out in the
cold, that he (Cooper) was obliged to te
there and he would do the work, as
there was no use in both of them being
out in therain, It was drizzling and
freezing as it tell, and as Mr. Cooper
reached to uncouple the cars his foot
slipped and he fell across the rail.
Seven cars passed over him before the
train could be stopped. His lower
limbs were terribly mangled but his
head and body were not bruised. One
of the trainmen who hastened to him,
heard him murmur “Lord have mercy
on my soul,” but death was almost in-
stantaneous. Everyone speaks in the
highest terms of Mr, Cooper, and his
crew all feel that they have lost their
kindest friend, We heard one of them
say yesterday that he was the truest
man and most perfect gentleman he had
ever met. He was about 39 years old
and a devoted member of the Lutheran
church. He leaves a wife, who is just
recovering from a severe illness, and a
little daughter about thirteen years old.
A singular fact to be considered is that
his father and two brothers also met
very sudden deaths and that the four
widows are now neighbors at Sunbury.
newly organized company to operate
the lines of the Bellefonte, Buffalo Run,
and Bald Eagle Valley Railroad com-
pany has elected Robert Frazer, of
Philadelphia, to succeed John Riley to
the presidency and the road will hereaf-
ter be known as the Bellefonte Central.
teen continued as superintendent of the
road and his election is a fitting testi-
monial to the careful and judicious man-
ner in which ke has directed the road
sinceits completion. It isthought that
the branch from Krumrine’s to State Col-
lege will be built in thespring and that
will give the new company control of a
large freight trade, as well as a greatly
increased passenger traffic.
——A SAFE Gers Away.— While
Ed. K. Rhoades’ gang of men were
moving the safe from the second to the
first floor of the Daily News office, on
Wednesday morning, the tackle fasten-
ings gave way and the ponderous iron
box went to the bottom with a crash
that was heard all over this end of town.
The stairs were badly smashed up and
the hall door-way all jammed to splin-
ters. If the opening had been just a
little wider the safe would .have rolled
clear out into the street, but, as it was,
pieces of broken plank flew in every
direction ; one of them almost striking
Mrs. J. A. Aikens, who happened to be
passing at the time. From the move
the safe had on one would think it was
starting for Canada, without its cashier.
The accident was wonderful in more
ways than one, and not the least, that
it brought to light the fact that one
newspaper office, at least, requires a
safe place for its valuables.

obliging young ladies in the telephone
exchange, has been on the sick list for

Gen. Irvin Curtin, is an aspirant for na-

ment to the vacancy caused by Andrew
Cruse’s dismissal from the United States
Naval Academy, #1 Annapolis.
—— Miss Sharp,the sweet voiced evan-
gelist, who is conducting. in the Meth-
odist church in this place, the series of
afternoon and evening meetings that
haveso helped and benefited everyone
who has attended, is a native of New
Jersey, but a resident of Philadelphia.
Miss Sharp 1s an earnest worker and no
one can hear her and not be touched by
her enthusiasm.
Kinney, alias Edwards,of Bellefonte, was
arrested by Patrolman Spotts and taken
before Alderman Jones yesterday after-
noon, on the charge of larceny, preferred
by George W. Clayberger. The prose-
cutor alleges that on January 5th, the
defendant stole a pair of shoes from him
which were valued at $5. In default of
$100 bail defendant was committed to
jail for a hearing this evening at 7
o’clock.— Williams yort Gazette and

A GREAT “Scoop” or Huns.—On
Sunday night the Hungarian contingent
of our population held a jollification
over the advent of twin boys, to one of
their households, and the residents of
north Allegheny street were treated to
the sight of a regular old time embrog-
lio. The father of the ‘‘bloomin” ba-
bies thought to celebrate their birth by
inviting his friends to a grand party, at
his home, and had provided enough
whiskey and beer for them all to fill up
on. All day on Sunday the guests were
arriving, and by four in the afternoon
they had gotten so full that a free fight
was inevitable. The citizens of the
community became alarmed, for their
own welfare,and notified the police, and
chief Gares with a posse of officers were
promptly upon the scene. Nineteen
drunken Hungarians were dragged from
the house aud loaded on a sled, which
was waiting at the door,and, before they
had time to realize what was going on,
they were dumped out atthe the jail
and soon locked up.
Sheriff Ishler deputized every one he

On Monday afternoon the rioters had
a hearing and after payirg five dollars

-—Some time last fall a “Red Letter”
day was inaugurated, in Bellefonte,and
all of the mail boxes throughout the
town were changed from their somber
green colors to a bright red. Just
whether the new color was an improve-
ment we are not ‘concerned in saying,
but when Capt Williams’ force of
painters daubed the boxes they covered
up a very essential little direction as to
how letters were to be placed in the
“drop.”” On the edge of each ‘‘drop,”
painted in yellow, were the words:
#Put the letter in side ways” and when
the change of color was made this direc-
tion was not replaced. Accordingly
many persons, not accustomed to the use
of the mail boxes, and not knowing how
to place their parcels in them, are great-
ly inconvenienced by the absence of the
direction. And we have even seen peo-
ple wulk away after vainly trying sever-
al moments to get a letter in.
THE CriNics ARE FREE.—In last
week’s issue of the WATCHMAN we gave
an account of the course in veterinary
surgery, which has lately been inaugura-
ted at State College, and of the clinics
which will be held every Saturday morn-
ing. We now take pleasure in an-
nouncing to our readers that these opera-
tions upon sick and diseased animals
are public and everyone who desires to
see the manner in which the various
diseases are treated can do so without
any charge whatever. This is a rare
opportunity for people of this commu-
nity to study the most improved meth-
ods of veterinary surgery, and all stock
owners should avail themselves of the
advantage offered by the college.
day evening saw a new fraternity, for
State College, incepted and the budding
Greeks banqueted at the Bush House.
The new organization will be known
as the State College chapter of Kappa

which is quite well known in the hel-
lenic world. The charter members of
the new organization are : M. F.Swartz,
M. S. McDcewell, A. G. Guyer, W. B.

Carr, Hibbert, Lippincott and Speak-

——We are sorry to record the fact
of Mrs. Jos. Ceader’s serious illness, with

little hope for her recovery was enter-
tained, but during the afternoon she ral-
lied and is now slowly improving.
——The new secretary for the Y. M.
C. A. bas written that he will be here
promptly on the 1st of February. It is
to be hoped that his advent will [infuse
new life into the old organization and
make it a means of doing much good in
our midst.
——Mr. Charles Pierce, of Oregon,
departed on Thursday afternoon, after
spending a pleasant week with his friends
in this place. About five years ago he
was a law student with Orvis, Bower &
Orvis, but a tempting offer from sa
large lumber firm induced him to give
up his Blackstone and go west. This
was his first visit since leaving Belle-
fonte and of a certainty it was a pleas-
ant one.
At the annual meeting of the
Presbyterian congregation, of this place
held on Tuesday evening, the treasurer
presented his statement for 1891 show-
ing a total indebtedness of $313.48. Tke
expenditures for the year amounted to
$2990.08. Subscriptions $2976.55. Chas.
F. Cooke and Jno. C, Miller were re-
elected to the board of Trustees for the
ensuing term of three years.
——A most successful and instructive
musical convention came to a close, at

concert was an unusually good one and
Miss Laura Johnston, of Jacksonville,
elicited many compliments for her skill-
ful work at the organ while, Miss Josie
Karstetter, of Logantown, captivated
the audience with her sweet soprano
—— Bellefonte will soon lose one of
ber best and most energetic residents.
R. R. Voris, of south Spring street, has
decided to give up his business here to
go with his brother, in the wallpaper
business, in Scranton. Mr. Voris’ de-
termination has been very suddenly
made and he will sell his property here,
leaving within two weeks. While we
are sorry to lose him we know it must
be an advantageous move, or he would
not make 1t,and we therefore wish him
much success in his new line. Musical
circles, in town, will greatly miss his
wonderful bass voice.
——We have thus far neglected men-
tioning the change in the make up of the
Penns Valley Banking Company which
was brought about on Jan. 1st. With
the end of 1891 Messrs Wm. Wolf, of
Centre Hall, Daniel Hess, of Linden
Hall and Gen. Beaver, of this place, re-
tired and were succeeded by the Allison
Bros., Wm. B. Mingle, Jas. A. Keller
and Simon Harper, who will in the fu-
! ture direct the business of the bank.
| Mr. Harper is president of the new
company and Wm. B. Mingle its cash-
ier. All the gentlemen are men of
{ known integrity and sound judgment
| and the institution will be a very sub-
stantial one with such persons back-
ing 1t.

——One of Snow Shoe’s active Demo-
crats and reliable citizens, Mr. W. P-
Brown, spent Monday last in Bellefonte,
visiting old friends and attending to
business. Mr. now a resident of
Clarence, where he proposes opening a
hotel, provided the Court will grant
him license. Itis the general impres-
sion among his neighbors, that that
privilege could not be placed in more
careful hands.
last issue of the American Field devotes
two pages to the wonderful skill of Mr.
C. K. Sober, of Lewisburg, as a marks-
man. It gives his history, and a full
page cut illustration of the many diffi-
cult feats he performs with his shot gun. *
Mr. Sober has been giving public exhi-
bitions throughout the country, for some
time, and his performances have been
exciting universal wonder and interest,
fonte Republican and Daily News have
gone from the control of E. P. Tuten
and Charles L Gates and are now pub-
lished by the firm of Beers & Dillon.
Just what the new proprietors propose
doing with the two papers we are at a
loss to know, but from appearances we
judge that they have marked out a de-
cided line of improvement in both
“sheets.” Within the week the Daily
News has come‘out in a decidedly clean-
er form, than we have seen it for a long
time, and its grist of local happenings
has been replete with all items of inter-
est to readers in this community. We
wish the new firm success in their jour-
nalistic career in this section.
