from the building, by a neighbor, but
before she could arouse the sleeping in-
mates of the house the fire had gained
such head way that nothing could be
saved. Nine horses, six cows, a number
of young cattle and a large amount of
grain were all consumed. The fire was
ndiary origin, as
tracks were found leading out over the
field. The barn was insured.
AND BoarsBurG.—The Institute was’
held at Millheim on Monday and Tues-
day of this week and upon motion of
Dr. J. F. Hunter, Mr. Christ Alexander
was chosen president ard W. C. Duck,
secretary. The session was regularly
opened by singing and in the absence of
W. F. Smith, who was to have deliver-
ed the address of welcome, W. K. Alex-
ander, in a few well chosen and pleasant
words bade welcome, to the speakers, and
farmers present, to the hospitality of the
people of Millheim,which was responded
to by John A. Grundy, of the State
“The Institute was then addressed by
Mr. Edge, who stated how the institutes
were supported by appropriation made
by the legislature to the State Board of
Agriculture, that one meeting was held
in Harrisburg to comply with the pur-
port of the law, and as many more meet-
ings as the appropriaiion would permit
were held in the different counties of the
Commonwealth, for the benefit of the
farmers. Adjournment until 1:30 p. m.
Institute called to order at 1.30 p. m.
Question box opened. Many interest-
ing and instructive questions were asked
and answered by different members. A
soprano solo entitled, “The Old Fashion-
ed Home,” was finely rendered by Mrs.
Dr. Harter, of Millheim. W. A. Buck-
hout, Professor of Botany and Horticul-
ture of State College, delivered a very
fine address on ‘Forestry and the Farm-
er” in which he proved conclusively
that if the present system of cutting any
of our forests continued it was only a
matter of short time until all our valu-
able tracts would be used up; that he
thought it would pay farmers well to
pay attention to cultivation of trustees.
Prof. Buckhout was follc wed by Col.
J. P. Coburn, of Aaronsburg, in a very
able address, showing the honorable and
commendable side of farm life, that by
careful management farming could be
made pay as well,or nearly so as any of
the other honorable avocations of life.
Mr. Edge, of the State Board of Ag-
riculture, explained how the’ farmers
could tell the different brands of phos-
phates; how to utilize the same and how
the its use had saved large sums of money
annually for the farmers of the State
Adjourned to 2 p. m.

Before opening the Institute the Mill-
heim Cornet Band rendered scme of its
The institute then resumed business
by asking and answering a few questions,
after which Mr. J. A. Grundy, of Union
county,discussed in plain and uneqivoca
language the topics, “The Outlook for
the American Farmer.” A. C. Sisson, of
La Plume, Lackawanna county, enter-
tained the audience by singing a song
entitled “Oh to be a Farmers’ Boy.”
This was followed by an address by
Prof. Hamilton, of State College, on
“Object of Education.”
He showed by statistics that the State
was spending $76,000,000 total, for edu-
cation of the youth. That education
without good moral character was more
injury than good. As Profs. Buckhou
and Hamilton, Mr. J. A. Grundy and
Mr. Edge, were leaving on the morning
train, a vote of thanks was tendered
them for the efficient service rendered
during their short stay among us.
A song entitled “The Old Pumpkin.”
a parody on the Old Oaken Bucket, was
sung by A. C.Risson to the delight and
amusement of all present. Adjourned
to 10 a. m, Tuesday Feb. 2.
TUESDAY MORNING SESSION.

Singing by thechoir, ¢‘America.”” Pray-
er by Rev. Finkbinder. A few questions
were answered after which the subject
“Small Fruits from Planting to Eating”
was discussed by A. C. Sisson, showing
how the cultivation of strawberries,
raspberries and blackberries could be
made very profitable. As the discussion
ofthis topic was quite lengthy on mo-
tion of W, K. Alexander the session ad-
1 0’CLOCK P. M.
Institute renewed with an address
by the Hon. N. B. Critchfield, of Tion-
esta Pa., on “Stock Feeding.” He
showed that he had given the subject
close study, and that by a careful selec-
tion of stock and care in attention, and
regularity in feeding, the feeding of cat-
tle would pay the farmer well for his
grain and labor.
This was followed by a lesson in
“Bread Making” by Mrs. Emma
Ewing, lecturer on cooking at Chatau-
qua, Shesail it looked very much as if
the farmer would have to tend hi stock
and then come to the house and make
bread to feed the children, for so many
mothers and daughters seem to care so
little whether they made good bread or
not. She showed by actual demonstra-
tion how to prepare and kneadgood dough
and explained in what condition to have
the oven in order to bake good bread.
On motion a vote of thanks was tend-
ered Mrs. Emory for the entertaining
and instructive lesson she gave.
Prof. Neff, of Millheim, grammar
school, addressed the Institute on the
different soils of Penns Valley and
Brush Valley, and the geological forma-
FARMERS’ INSTITUTES AT MILLHEIM structive: Adjourned to meet at 7
Institute called to order and after a
recitation by Mac Linn, in his usual comic
and entertaining style, Mr. Samuel
R. Downing of Chester county, addressed
the Institute on “Little Things in
Farming” which showed very clearly
the importance of attending to the little
things if we expect the good results not
only in farming but in all avocations
and business transactions of life.
A committee on resolutions having
been appointed reported the same to the
Institute and were unanimously
adodpte as follows :
Waereas. We recognize in these farmers
Institutes an educational feature worthy of
commendation tcall lovers of education and of
financial and social improvement. Therefore
Resolved. That it is the sense of the body
that a similar institute held at this place would
be hailed with universal joy and approval.

D. L. Zersy,
Mac Sisson then related his trip West,
going by way of Binghampton and Buf-
falo, N. Y., Toronto, Canada, North to
the Canadian Pacific R. R. thence to
Puget Sound, Washington. This was
quite lengthy, but entertaining and in-
structing, showing that the old gentle-
man although advanced in years, keeps
his eyes and ears open when he travels,
and stores away all useful information
for future use. The sessions of the insti-
tute were all well attended. The large
and commodious hall was crowded Mon-
day evening, Tuesday afternoon and
evening. Strange [notwithstanding the
inclement weather of Tuesday that the
Farmers and others were very much
interested in all that transpired. Many
of our people were prevented from going
by reason of the grip, but we believe
that these meetings have such a grip on
our people that another would be gladly
welcomed amongst us.
THE INSTITUTE AT BOALSBURG.
The Agricultural Institute held, in
the M. HE. church, at Boalsburg, on
Wednesday and Thursday of this week,
under the auspices of the State Board of
Agriculture was one of much interest ;
judging from the very large attendance
at every session, the influences from it
will be of lasting benefit not only to the
farmers but to all the various callings of
the country. The entire exercises were
interspersed with excellent music by a
well trained choir under leadership of
Prof. P. H. Myers in connection with
this the floral display was magnificent
and moved every body’s soul. The taste of
this committee is certainly worthy of
commendation. The audience was rap-
ped to order by chairman of Committee
of Arrangements Sanwel F. Ishler at
10-30 o'clock. The mantle of honor
fell on Hon. W. A. Murray, who very
promptly took the chair and in a breezy
little speech outlined the object of the
meeting, regretting very much to state
the illness of Hon. J. A. Woodward,
who had made his best endeavor to
make this meeting a success. Devotion-
al exercises were conducted by Rev. A.
A. Black and the address of welcome by
Rev. W. A. Trostle, who in well couch-
ed sentences of welcome extended a
warm greeting to farmers and all inter-
ested, showing in a true light the oldest
and most reliable vocations in the world
and on which depends so much the pros-
perity of all other occupations. Every-
body he invited to join in these enjoy-
able and profitable meetings and shared
the hospitality, of Boalsburg. The
response, in behalf of the State board of
agriculture, was made by Representa-
tive Hon. N, B. Critchfield, of Somer-
et county, that land of milk and mo las-
ses. His Honor after a brief apology
for his embarrassment and youthful ap-
pearance, in a full measure showed the
farmer’s isolation in early years and stat-
ed the object of the meetingiias being to
create more interest in practical farming
and that he did not want to be consider-
ered an encyclopedia but earnestly desired
to be benefitted and help his fellowmen
in the matter of educational farming.
Here the melodous strains of music burst
forth in“ when I was a boy on the old plan
tation swinging in a grape vine swing”
and then came the election of officers.
For vice president of the meeting Saml.
F.Ishler and Secretary William Me-
Farland, after which the program was
abered to as strictly as possible more es-
pecially to the order of dinner.
THE AFTERNOON SESSION,
At 1-30 sharp, chairman Murry’s
gavel fell and the assembly was called to
order and for the first time the question
box examined. In it was found the |
question ‘Lice and how to destroy ;
them ?” ans. by Representive Critch-
field was a decoction of white helebore.
lard and kerosene oil.
¢ The distruction of the Canada thistle’?
tions of South side of the county. His ! was taken part in by Masts Downing
address was entertaining and highly in- Criwchfield, McCracken, Dale and Dan-
iel Grove, all agreed that constant cut-
ting was the only and surest distruction
of the pest.
Mr. Critchfield read a well prepared
paper on the “Care of Farm horses.”
On this subject the gentleman isevi-
dently well informed both from theory
and practice and, gave many practical
suggestions, from the gay colt to the
family horse, He especially urged the
use of the old fashioned hack and
trough in preference to mangers, where
so much dust accumulates and causes
various diseases to which the most fav-
orite beast of man is heir. At this
juncture the exercises were varied
somewhat by the absence ot Prof, Barn-
ard and Dr. Armsby took the floor to
announce to the gathering of farmers,
the short winter course, carried on at
State College for the benefit of farmers
boys, who should avail themselves of the
grand opportunity of acquiring better
knowledge of agriculture in their leisure
winter hours. Then Mr, Sisson favor-
ed the audience with a favorite song
entitled the “Sword of Bunker Hill”
After which he gave a most interesting
sketch and outlined, from a map sus-
pended on the wall, the Geogra-
phial discription of his trip west last
season starting at his home, Binghamton,
via the Canada and Pacific R. R,
to the Pacific and return. From the
fact that Mr. Sisson isa whole camp-
meeting himself, in his humorous good
style he gave a very interesting lecture
on the scenery, general views and cus-
toms along the route through that
northern country noted for its glacerers
deep rugged canons and the lofty peeks of
Supper being announced adjournment
to reassemble at 7 o’clock.
Those who neglected to return early
failed to find a seat as a message was at
hand stating the expected presence of
Governor Bob. In consequence thes
standing room was ata premium and
the aisles, doors and windows wers full
and many failed to get in at all.
Mrs. B. F. Brown representative of
Victor Grange, 159, P. of H. read a very
able essay entitled “Many in One,” and
in a clear distinct voice citing the social
and friendly relations now existing
through the medium of the grange and
that the home of a farmer could be made
one of attraction and comfort.
The question box being examined tke
“potato rot” wa: very meagerly discusc«
ed Mr, Sisson’s 1dea was to plant no late
varieties and that all early varieties re-
quire good soil. ‘What benefits are the
merchants to the farmer?” “Indispensi-
ble!”—Answerd by Mr. Critchfield.
“What value is the grange to the mer-
chant?” answered by Mr Downing who
said that each depended very largely up-
on the other. “How can farmers get
better prices?” To which Mr. Criteh-.
field responded that they should raise
better products and find better markets.
Just then the stately form of his excel-
lency Gov. Pattison was noticed elbow-
ing his way, through the throng, amid
prolonged applause. When order was re-
stored the Gov. was introduced by the
chairman to the crowd which had cheer-
ed itself hoarse. He expressed his de-
light at being able to be present and ad-
dress the audience and exchange every-
day practical questions with one of the
oidest and most honored societies. Space
will not permit us to tell of the many
practical things he said which if put
intouse by the agricultural masses would
result not only in fimancial success, but
would make farming a vocation in
which the young people would take de-
right, and thus be the means of keeping
them -away from cities and on the farm,
on which so largely depends the [uture
success of this great nation. He
gave statistics showing that the
production and sale of wheat and
corn, alone this year, amounts to
six million dollars. He also dwelt on
the almost thread bare road question and
its solution. Citing instances of cost of
sixty millions of dollars, and in as much
as the taxpayers were a unit for lower
taxes, and the only way was to submit
to taxation and the roads would be
made. The public school question was
touched and its defects shown. He urg-
ed the continuance of the present tax
rate and the expenditure of the appropri-
ation for the advancement of the mil-
lions of children, and with a few happy
day expressions he closed. After pro-
longed applause, everybody was eager 10
grasp him by the hand to receive his
cheerful greeting. He was then in
charge of Mr. McFarland whose hospi-
tality the Governor shared.
NEARING THE CLOSE.
Thursday a. m., at 10 o’clock “little
things in farming’’ as well as big things
was the theme of a very iustructive dis-
course. The question box was emptied
and their was a grist of most interesting
ones to which very satisfactory answers
were given. Most of the morning ses-
sion was taken up with the subject of
education and the different speakers were
Dinner was the sole cause of adjourn-
ment and when one o'clock came there
was a full house to hear Mrs. Ewing
! of Chautauqua, lectare on cooking which
was listened to with much interest.
“Small fruits from planting to eat-
ing” by Mr. A. C. Sisson, in his usual
happy vein was a subject in which he
is entirely at home, and his audience
was delighted with his talk,
THE INSTITUTE CLOSES.
The 7 p. m. session and the last one
was greeted with a full house. For the
last time the question box was emptied
and some choice renditions of music
were listened to. ‘Novelties at Fairs’
by Mr. Downing, with funny as well as
practical illustrations was an interesting
and enjoyable dissertation. The last
speaker was Prof. Hamilton, of State
College, on ‘“‘the object of an Educa-
tion” which was instructive and inter-
esting and highly appreciated, showing
why a good education is necessary for
farmer’s sons and daughter:, in order
that they may be more successful in
the business of farming and to enable
them to fill more exalted positions in
life. The hour of closing having ar-
rived the audience was favored with
choir music. The thanks of the com-
mittee was then tendered to the choir as
well as to all others who by their aid
and presence made the Institute’ the
first one of the kind held in Boalsburg,
a grand success.
One of the amusing incidents of the
week occurred on Wednesday night
when the‘ ‘keen and ubiquitous’ reporter
ofthe Gazettestuck in the mud in a
Boalsburg street and a block and tackle
Lad to be secured before his feet could
be pulied out.
Hon. W. K. Alexander, of Millheim,
was in attendance at the Boalsburg ses-
sion’s and responded to questions 1n his
usual versatile way:

ed on Saturday evening and met a num-
ber of Bellefonte’s most prominent citi-
zens at a dinner given in their honor by
the General. ’Tis seldom that Belle-
forte is honored by so many distinguish-
ed gentlemen, at one time, and their
advent attracted considerable attention.
A DREADFUL ScoUuRGE.—The family
of William Luce, of Farmers’ Mills,
bas been entirely obliterated by that
dread disease diphtheria and no one re-
mains but &« sad and broken hearted
mother. Week before last the father
and two daughter were stricken ard died
within a few days of each other, and
scarce had the sound of the sexton’s
spade died away ere the last child was
cold in death’s embrace. It was said to
be a malignant form of diphtheria and
the physicians are making every effort
to keep it from spreading.
INsANITY CURED —Some weeks ago
we made mantion of the taking of John
Schuchman, an insane German, from
i Philipsburg to the hospital in Philadel-
' phia, where and operation was to be per-
‘formed. On last Wednesday the physi-
cians at the hospital undertook and sue
cassfully performed one of the most Ce-
licate operations known to the science of
i surgery. Some years ago he was hurt
"on the head and a piece of the skull was
‘removed. A cyst formed over the open-
ing and it was this sae, which kept ecn-
tinually growing and pressing on the
brain, which caused irsanity. The doc-
tors opened the cyst and took out its
fluid contents; carefully closing and
cleansing it. It is said that the opera-
tion will relieve him for several years at
least and it is looked upon by the pro-
fession as a wonderful performance.
CounciL MET AND ADJOURNED-—
THAT's ALL.—At the regular meeting
of Council, on Monday evening, that

all the business before them in ga very
few minutes. No committees were ready
