Among the many remedies being
used as cures for grip we might mention
quinine and whisky, calomel, hickory
nut kernels and asafoedita all of which
are claimed to be effective. In the case
of the latter we think the cure must be
dedfdedly worse than the disease. An
eminent physician-has ascribed the great
prevalence of grip this season to the
fact that the abundant fruit crop of ’91
has caused everyone's blood to become
so thin that all are specially susceptible
to the grip germ,
GEN. JAMEs S. BrisBiN.—On last
Friday a telegram was received that
Gen. James S. Brisbin had died, Thurs-
day afternoon at the Lafayette Hotel, in
Philade'phia, where he had gone for
re tment for bronchial affection. This
indeed was a shock to his friends in this
community, who supposed he was in his
usual health and did not know that he
was East. In the July of 1888 in moving
from Fort McKinney, Wyoming, to
Fort Robinson, Nebraska, he was pros-
trated by the heat which resulted after-
wards in the partial paralysis of the
right side from which he never fully re-
Gen. Brisbin, the son of Ezra and
Margaret Brisbin, was, born at Boals-
burg, in this county nearly sixty years
ago. When quite young he came to
Bellefonte where he was connected with
the Centre Democrat, first as assistant to
his brother-in-law W. W. Brown and
afterward as the editor in chief. When
Fort Sumpter was fired upon he was one
of the first to answer Lincoln’s call for
75,000 volunteers and although a resi-
dent of our own town he preferred to
join his own old company, the Penns-
valley cadets, which left Boalsburg,
April 20th, 1861, under Captain Robert
McFarlane. Gen. Brisbin was not mus-
tered in Co. H, Tth Reg.., Pa., Volun-
teers but was otfered and accepted a
commission as Second Lieutenant in the
1st U. S. Dragoons. A natural soldier,
brave, honorable and ambitious, his pro-
motion was rapid, and in 1865 he was
made brigadier "general of volunteers.
At the close of the war he enlisted in
the regular service and was transferred
to the Ninth United States Cavalry and,
from that time until his death he was
one of the noted soldiers in the great
North West. During that time he has
been in command of nearly all the prin-
cipal forts in Montana, Wyoming, Ne-
braska, Minnesota and the Dakotas.
In 1889 he was commissioned Colonel of
the First United States Cavalry and
if military men were promoted accord-
ing to their ability and seniority, as it is
generally supposed they are, Gen. Bris-
bin would have received the stars years
ago. Ofsplendid physique and a bril-
liant mind, be was an ideal soldier and
a representative man of the times,begin-
ning with only a common school educa-
tion he has long been recognized as an
ableand intelligentgvriter. His articles
on the destruction of the forests of this
country were widely copied, and a story
«Belden, the White Chief, ’’ which was
published in book form. had a large
sale. He was a regular contributor to
several ot the leading periodicals of the
country, and many readers of this paper
will never forget his interesting and in-
structive letters from the great North
West. He was ever loyal to Pennsyl-
vania but the great country west of the
Mississippi never had a more faithful
and zealous advocate than Gen. James
S. Brisbin. In’61 he married Jane,
Mr. and Mrs. D. M, Wagner's oldest
daughter, who at that time was only
fiftecn years old. She was a beautiful
woman, and at the time of her death,
which occurred December 13th, 1887, at
Fort McKinney, was considered one of
the most popular women in the army.
In ’90 he married a lady from Philadel-
phia, who, although pot so well known
in Centre county as his first wife, is ful-
iy competent to make noble men and
women of the four younger children
who are left in the fatherless home at
Red Wing, Minnesota. Carrie and
Blanche the two oldest daughters are
married, while Winfield the oldest son is
in business in Nebraska. Gen. Brisben
was a most indulgent father, and the
last letter we received from him express-
ed the wish that his life might be spared
a few yeacs on account of his little ones.
His only brother died some years ago in
Missouri, but his sisters Mrs. W. W.
Brown, of Canton, Ohio, Mrs. Hasson,
of Boalsburg, Mrs. John Morgan, of
Charleston, Va., and Mrs. Dr. Hanter,
all survive him. His death came as a
personal loss to many citizens of Penn-
sylvania, who knew him as a genial,
big-heart, honorable man with a nature
broad, independent and pliant, and out
of this character came the life which we
admire and the death which we lament.

reception to the new General Secretary,
Mr. D. S. Bearsley, from Watertown,

and running in their old time way. It
is the intent of the association to have a
tenant for the house, who will keep the
rooms in order and take proper care of
the gymnasium as well as to look after
the general interests of the Association.
With such an arrangement and an ac-
tive Secretary we can look forward for
good results from the organization.
Thereading-rooms will again be regular-
ly open to the public and it will be the
attractive rendezvous for many of our
young men who are forced to spend
their evenings at naproSsbe places.

The supposed Clinton county
murder has turned out to be a case of
suicide. The fact that Mrs. Me-
Keague’s wind pipe was not altogether
severed makes it evident that she must
have lived for some time after her
throat was cut and if it had been murder
someone in the house would have heard
the dying woman's cries.

——A Gazette writer informed ‘editor
Furey, of the Lock Haven Democrat, in
the Monday's issue, that, “in the days of
Washington and Penn, Pittsburg might
have been called a western city” and at
the same time made a nice display of his
ignorance on historic Pennsylvania.
The good old quaker had mouldered in
bis tomb almost an hundred years ere
such a place as Pittsburg was heard of
and Washington died much too soon to
hear that Fort Pitt had become the

MecCalmont & Co., are substantially
built, neatly constructed and well fin"
ished—they are convenient for turning
around, easily backed, will haul heavy
loads and in every respect are {the most
desirable bob sleds in the market.
Those in want of sleds should examine
the stock of McCaimont & Co., before
purchasing. Only two swell body
sleighs left in the store. Those in want
had better not loose any time ir pur-
chasing these sleds and sleighs—-they
are in active demand.

| the first stamps, which were to be put
before the public on May 6, of the fol-
lowing year. A year later they were
introduced in the United States and
Switzerland, aud within three years had
become common in Bavaria, Belgium
and France.

Tuk New Boy Tramp.-~The Buffalo
Times has the following to say of Au-
gustin Neuville and his company which
will appear in the Opera House, on next
Monday night, the 25th:
“The house was packed full last night,
and the audierce was perfectly satisfied
with the excellent pertormance of “The
Boy Tramp.” The play is pretty, full
of fan and human interest and is much
improved since its production here last
season, bothin cast and scenic effects.
The company are all capable people and
acted their parts in a most masterly
manner. Augustin is a most clever
comedian after the style of Roland Reed;
and made a great hit with the big au-
dience. Thescenery is a big feature
and was received with loud applause.”
CavurcH.—The question as to whether
women should be eligible, as delegates
to the general conference of the Method-
ist church has been agitating the minds
of the good brethren and arousing the
“dander’’ of the ‘consistent sister’”” ever
since it was decided to put the question
to a general church vote and, conse-
quently, the final outcome is looked for-
ward to with much interest.
The vote of the laiety has been large-
ly in favor of the admission and the
majority of 71,740 will have much sig-
nificance at the next general conference.
The ministerial vote resulted in a ma-
jority of 451 for admission and the pres-
ent indications point to a victory for
the women.

the Council Chamber and {ransacted
the little borough business brought be-
fore them. There being no petitions to
act upon, the water question was taken
up and the Water Committee reported
an enormous waste, occasioned by per-
sons running their hydrauts all night.
The matter was laid before council and
it decided to levy additional taxes upon
all such persons. Rules for the regula-
tions of Police were formulated and
unanimously adopted. The committee
to investigate the character of the new
organization to beknown as the Undine
Hose Co., reported and the company
has had borough recognition. The rou-
tine business of the session having been
transacted the meeting adjourned.

LER.—There is a “slick”’tongued
idual heading this way who will try to
sell you twenty-five pounds of coffee at
a ridiculously low price. If you pur-
chase it you will have the satisfaction of
unwrapping a poke of nicely browned
beans over which the wily agent has
poured some essence of coffee.
A Yournrcrn Forcier. —The little
mining town of Scotia was thrown into
a fever of excitement last week when it
became known that J. W. Biddle, Jr.,
a youth of 20 years, had daparted with
his father’s pension check. The boy us-
ually lifted the mail at the postofiice
and on Tuesday, when his father’s quar-
terly payment came he fook it out, but
failed to return home. He boarded a
rain for this place and proceeded to
Joseph Bros. & Co.’s store, where he
gave his name as J. W. Fogelman and
said that he had been working for a
month and a half for = man named J.
W. Biddle, who had just paid him off
with a $36 pension check. The Joseph's
belieying his story, sold him
coat and gave him his balance in cash,
where upon the youngz scamp took a
train and the last heard of him was that
he had reached Eimira, N. Y. It was
evidently a deliberately planned scheme
to steal his father’s check and he has
added forgery to the crime of larceny.

Pusric Service ExcaaNgi.—Is the
of a handsomely remunerative
business which our boyhood Friend, and
a young Bellefonter, hus built up in
Seattle, Washington. Nearly three
years ago Paul L. Sternberg severed his
connection with the postoffice here and

From time to time we have heard of |
his successes, in different lines, and now 1g
there comes to us a circular announcing |
hig new business and trom the scope |

quite a nice thing as proprietor of the |
Public Service bureau, of Seattle. Paul | |
always possessed just that snap and |
judgment which was destined to make
him a man of worth and his carefulness '
and integrity has undoubtedly stood
him in good stead in his new home.
