‘Wednesday morning in the Union
cemetery in Millheim,
Everybody has heard the expression
“well, we have to keep the ball rolling,”
but it may be that some of you do not
know what class of people uses it most. |
Generally when you corner a gossip on |
some ungrounded story he or she has
been adding variations to, they will find |
refuge in the expression we have first |
quoted. Some one, in all sincerity, tells
the fact: “Mr. Brown's horse almost ran
off and killed him yesterday morning.”
The next person adds a little to the
story and by the time it has gone
through a half dozen imaginative minds
it comes out something like this: “Did
you hear of the awful accident? Why
old Brown was drunk yesterday and his
horse ran off and killed him, but he had:
five thousand dollarslife insurance.” Now
this is the class of people we find in
every community and their busy tongues
are continually getting honest persons in-
to trouble.
But the same disagreeable mission is
often performed by newspapers. One
paper clipping a little article from an-
other and improving on it until at last
the story has nothing in common with
the original recounting of the facts. An
excellent illustration of this is to be
found in the following article which ap-
peared in the Lock Haven Democrat on
“A Centre county man recently killed
a bear that had a darning needle in one
of the main tubes of the lungs.”
This paragraph bag its origin in an ac-
count of the killing of a steer down in
the lower end of the county which was
published in the Gazette several weeks
since. ‘What made the account inter-
esting at all was the fact that when the
steer was cut up a large darning needle
was found in its lungs. Thus the “ball
has been kept rolling’ and in the above
paragraph we see what has become of
the original story. One paper having
gone so far as to tell its readers that a
woman has been missing in this county
for some time and concluded that the
bear must have eaten her, thus getting
the darning needle in its lungs.
HarL.—The Agricultural Institute to
be held at Centre Hall, Thursday and
Friday, January 26 and 27, (Rebersburg

tant su“ject of agriculture, which 1s the
back-bone of the nation. The Institutes

“Miss Maggie E. Shreffler, living in
the lock house, down at the dam, can
show figures on chicken raising that are
hard to beat, She had 50 fowls on the
1st of January, 1892 and sold 25 on the
second day. From the remaining 25
she raised 218 chicks and received 3,536
eggs; of this number 69 dozen eggs were
sold realizing $16.56, leaving the balance
for hatching and family use. Young
chicks were disposed of to the amount
of $82.15. She purchased $30.00 worth:
of feed, and now has on hand thirty
chickens and $18.71 in cash.
The proposition is made, by some obhg-
ing mortal, that a register be placed in |

ladies on entering the church might in- |

the young gentlemen the suspense and
loss of time now unavoidable, since they

—— Lock Haven thermometers reg-
istered eighteen degrees below zero, on
Monday morning. In Bellefonte they
got down to ten. In Unionville, six was
the lowest point reached. '' Monday
morning we thought was about as cold
as it could get when we wrote the alove
but Wednesday's record krocked our
conclusion into a cocked hat. Get be-
side your stove and read: 22 deg.
below at Clearfield ; 19 deg. below at
Zion ; 16 deg. below at Spring Mills ;
15 deg. below down at Coburn ; 14 deg,
below in Bellefonte. But the back-
bone of the cold wave is broken now
and plumbers will ge t a rest.
———1In our last week's issue we forgot
to note the burning of Robert Gray’s
store and the dwelling of his father, Mr.
W. 8. Gray, at Stormstown, which oc-
curred on Tuesday evening, Jan. 10th
The house and store were joined in one
large, commodious building and were
heated from a furnace in the cellar of the
store. The bitter cold weather had made
a roaring fire a necessity and it is
thought that the building caught in that
way. It seemed to have been on fire all
over before ‘the inmates realized it, for
scarcely anything was saved. The store
was one of the finest general merchan.
dise establishments in the county and
tations are seldom realized as fully as at
day night.

nine hundred and fifty comfortably,

with people anticipating a most enjoya. |

Cuarwensville, Clearfield, Huntingdon,
Lock Haven, and State College and alto-

tive audierces ever seen in Bellefonte.
The excellent program, a model one
in point ef’ symmetry, contrast and in-

that has the opportunity of listening
Sunday after Sunday to his expressive
interpretation of the great masters, is
indeed to be congratulated. His rank
as a musician was as evident in his
technique as in his selections for his
pbrasing was admirable and his execu-
tion clear and casy.
Mr. Ford almost carried off the hon-
ors of the evening with “Love’s Old
Song” and not only his excellent voice;
but his willing response to the hearty
applause won for him a most pleas:nt
memory in the minds of his hearers.
Bellefonte singers could learn a lesson
from Mr. Ford’s and Miss Keim’s enun-
ciation. "Every word they uttered could
be heard distinctly in all parts of the
church, and in consequence everybody
was delighted with them. Miss Keim
is little more than a child in years ; but
sings remarkably well for one so young.
Her voice is clear and brilliant and from
the outlook now she will be heard of in
the musical world, for both her singing
and her personality have that indefina-
ble attribute we call charm.
Wednesday, February 22nd, promises to
be a gala day at the Pennsylvania State
College. Tt will mark an epoch in the
history of Pennsylvania's big institu-
tion of learning and will be the first step
toward a broader and more thoroughly
equipped work in the field of Mechanic-
al Engineering. This Department at
the College has, in a period of a very
few years, jumped into a position of
eminence and because of its popularity
and the growing demand for mechani-
cal, engineers, all over thejworid, the
trustees have done well in recognizing
its growth. !
A new building for the Enginezring
Department was provided for by the
last Legislature -and it is so near done
that the dedicatory services will be held
next month. The opening will be
made one of unusual interest by reason
of the long list of distinguished men
who will attend. Among them we
might mention Hon. John W. Noble,
Secretary of the Interior ; Hon. Francis
A. Walker, President of the Boston
Institute of Technology and Superinten-
dent of the 10th Census ; Hon. Robert
Emory Pattison, Governor of Pennsyl-
vania, and Staff’; the members of the
State Legislature and a number of
other dignitaries,
Appropriate ceremonies will be held
during the day and a grand promenade
concert in tha Armory will conclude
the social part of it. ~

case of Brookville borough vs. Richard
Arthurs was terminated in the Jefferson
county court recently, and the borcugh

question to be decided was whether the

defective sidewalks ‘‘after the owner had

ering $5,000 damages from the borough
for injuries received, and the borough
recovered off the owner, Mr.. Arthurs.
