Tue SpriNG CREEK Froop.—The
heavy fall of snow last Thursday night
which turned to rain early Friday
morning made the largest flood in Spring
Creek, at this place, that has been seen
since the big flood of 1882. At that
time the raging waters and ice carried
away the old Valentine trestle, which
spanned Spring creek just above the B.
N. & L. Railroad trestle and it, being
carried down with the torrent, swept the
High street bridge, at this office. The
car shops dam broke and for awhile the
greatest alarm was felt by people who
lived near the stream.
That memorable flood was on Sunday
and the water in the press-rooms of the
WarcaMAN office was seven feet deep.
All of the presses were submerged and
when the water fell what had been one
of the best ordered printing establish-
ments in the State was altogether one of
the slimiest, and most forsaken looking
places one eould imagine.
In June of 1876 there was a rain flood
that carried about a foot of water into
our press rooms and the fact that it was
entirely from a rain, which had ended a
dry season, the flood was a great sur-
prise. Again in ’89 the time of the aw-
ful Johnstown disaster the waters in
Spring Creek got very high but at no
time did the WarcHMAN office get
more than sixteen inches. In 1891 a
spring freshet brought the water up to
our floors and succeeded in administer-
ing a coat of mud to everything within
itsreach but since then, until last Friday,
Spring Creek has been comparatively
The surprising part of the last week’s
flood lies in the little snow or rain there
had fallen to make it. This is explain-
ed, however, by the fact the ground
was covered by a hard ice and all the
water that fell ran off instead of perco-
lating the ground. ‘At eleven o’clock
Logan’s branch began to rise and by
three in the afternoon it was overflow-
ing its banks all along its course. The
Spring Creek flood came on them and at
four o’clock it was raising at the rate of
six inches every hour. By evening it
blew up cold and the water began fall-

——The Presbyterian congregation
was somewhat surprised last Sunday to
find out that it was still one thousand
dollars in debt for the improvements that
were made recently in the interior of
the church and for the pipe organ. Ten
thousand dollars was considered a liber-

sum was soon raised, and every body
was happy at the thought of no indebt-
edness ; but it seems that first class
work comes high, for the estimate in-
stead of being high was just one tenth
too low and the announcement Sunday
was like a thunderclap.

Frederick Bryton’s new play: ¢For-

who is a remarkably handsome man,
carried the female portion of the audi-
ence with him, not alone by his manly
bearing and picturesque costumes. but
by his naturalness and his intense fervor.
He wins the sympathy of his spectators
at once, and in the third act rouses them
to unwonted excitement by his meeting
with his enemy and his simple bravery

AMATEURS IN Comic OpPErRA.—On
Tuesday evening in Garman’s Opera
House, the “Pirates of Penzance’ was
given by some of our young people for
the benefit of the Academy and although
it is one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s oldest
operas, it had never been heard in Belle-
fonte before and was therefore a niost en-
joyable surprise to those who did not
realize the possibilities of the opera or
the capabilities of the company.
When the curtain went up the pirates
were celebrating Frederick’s, H. P. Har-
ris, twenty-first birthday with a general
good time, after he had announeed his
intention of leaving them forever Ruth,
Miss Grace Furey,his nurse who was de-
termined to marry him, explained the
mistake whereby he was apprentieed to
a pirate instead of a pilot. When the
pirates left the stage they gave Fhreder-
ick Ruth who begged him to love her;
but the appearance of General Stanley’s
numerous daughters saved the situation
and Ruth went off in despair. Mabel,
Miss Marie Meek, the youngest daugh-
ter, fell in love with Frederick, who
warned the girls that the pirates were
coming. They embraced the opportu-
nity, however, and all went well until
General Stanley, N. S, Westbrook, ap-
peared. In the second act, Fre derick,
his brave (?) policeman and Genera]
Stanley had more or less trouble with
the Pirate King, Philip Waddle, and
his followers, until finally all were con-
quered and the curtain went down on a
group of satisfied daughters and police-
man, principals, and pirates.
The whole entertainment was excel-
lent for amateurs, and we doubt if any
one has ever seen a group of prettier
chorus girls on any stage. Miss Grace
Furey was exceptionally good and while
she does not pretend to be a vocalist,her
voice was perfectly clear and her acting
fine. Every member of the company
deserves special mention ; but as we can.
not discriminate with all so good, we
will publish a letter from one of our
most able critics, who kindly sent us hi®$
opinion of the opera.
To tue Epitor oF THE DEMOCRATIC WATCHMAN :
Since attending with great pleasure the per-
formance of “The Pirates of Penzance” at Gar-
man’s Opera House last evening it has occur.
red to me that possibly because of the prom-
inent part taken by members of your family in
the performance, the mention of the event
in your paper might through a desire to
avoid the appearance of sounding your own
praises be inadequate. Will ycu kindly allow
me a little space, therefore, in your paper. It
isnot my purpose to give a detailed account
of the performance. I hope you will give
in addition to what I shall say in a general
way, a complete report of the occasion.
I feel alo that it is fitting that one who is,
as I am, unconnected with the active manage-
ment of the Bellefonte Academy although
deeply interested in its welfare, should ex.
press a few general impressions that have
The object! for which this entertainment
was given, viz., for the benefit of the Belle-
fonte Academy, is certainly a most worthy one
—one, indeed, that is or should be in the eyes
of every true Bellefonter, preeminently so,
Starting with this very worthy object in view,
the zeal, energy, and enterprise displayed by
the performers and all connected with the
management, as evidenced by the good re-
sults obtained, are in the highest degree com-
mendable. No such performaace as last
night's could be given without a very great
amount of hard work on the part of all con-
cerned. The earnestness and intelligence
displayed in the rendition of the different
parts was marked, and the company moved
together as a whole in excellent style. The
applause that arose from the audience after
the singing of some of the inspiring choruses
was altogether spontaneous and well deserved
and it was a just tribute to the excellent work
of each and every member of the chorus
and to the company as a whole. The cos-
tumes and the stage setting were very 1aste-
ful and added not a little to the success of the
Any one having the slightest appreciation of
the varied requirement of operatic singing
must understand something of the difficulties
that surround the rendition of leading roles
when in a lig..t opera, I feel, therefore, that
Belletonters should be proud of the success of
Miss Marie Meek in her role of * Mabel” and
Mr. Hardman P. Harris in his role of **Freder-
ick.” They had difficult tasks and they suc-
ceeded admirably. They certainly have the
congratulations of the audience. Miss Meek’s
appearance and bearing were exceedingly
gond. Her acting and singing were equally
good and she fulfilled the requirements of her
part in a most pleasing manner. Her fine
enunciation was particularly noticeable.
Bellefonters are certainly much indebted to
Miss Grace Furey, of Altoona, for her valuable
aid. It was, I believe, because of her confi-
dence that the undertaking would be a success
that the attempt was first made. Ably aided,
as she was, by the indomitable efforts og
Miss Emma Hughesand Mr. James R. Hughes.
The plans were evolved, the company was
‘gathered together, all the joined hands with
zeal in a common effort and the result
was a marked success. Miss Furey’s abil.
ity is well and favorably known in Belle-
fonte and we deeire to thank her for her
exercise of it not only in her rendition of
the part of “Ruth” but for her invaluable ser-
vices in general.
The aid of Mr. N.S. Westbrook and of Mr.
J. Mahlon Dugan, both of Altoona, was also
inestimable. Mr. Westbhrook’s rendition 'of
the part of “Major General Stanley” was thor-
oughly satisfactory. His acting and singing
was excellent and his evident experience, no
doubt, added greatly to the feeling of confi-
dence and repose displayed by the whole
It is not my desire to particularize in regard
to a performance where the success attained
was so largely due to the acting, singing and
bearing of the whole company, but I cannot
close without mentioning the’ commendable
performances and admirable appearances of
by Miss Annie Doris, of Huntingdon,
and is so richin coloring and design |
that it will constantly be, tothe behold- |
er an object lesson and to the young
woman who died in the very spring- |
time of life, a beautiful memorial from
another date in the near future.
her young friends of Bellefonte.
Mr. Philip Waddle, as the “Pirate King,” Mr.
James R. Hughs as ‘Samuel his lieutenant,
and Mr. Charles Noll as Police Sergeant. Miss
Emma Hughes, Miss Ella Twitmire and Miss
Blanche Hayes appeared very charmingly as
“Kate” “Edith” and *‘Isabel” three of General
Stanley's daughters. And I cannot refrain from
mentioning the rest of them also by name,
and the reader, who was also a spectator,
may recall, as he reads each separate name,
the distinct loveliness that made up this gal-
axy: Miss Sara Valentine, Miss Millie Smith
Miss Winifred Meek, Miss Bernice Moore,
Miss Aurora Moore, Miss Grace Lukenbach,
Miss-Lulu Hoy, Miss Rose Fox and Miss Hen-
And now that I have lost my self-restraiat to
this extent, notwithstanding my intention
not to-particularize, how can I refrain from
mentioning by name that noble band of PRir-
ates and that manly squad of policemen ?
They were: Massrs. ['homas Brew, Charles
Houck, James Harris, Charles Cruse, Samuel.
Neveling, George Brandon, George Meek, Mal-
colm Laurie, Charles Dorworth, George Bay--
ard, Henry Lyon, Bert Bayard and Charles
Bossner. They filled their parts most com-
mendably and eacn and. all of them added
greatly to the success of the performance,
It should also be said before closing that
great credit is due to Mr: Dugan for his untir—
ing efforts as musical director. Miss Emma. |
Hughes and Mr.George Brandon were aided
materially. by him in the preparatory work..
Without the aid of these three the undertak-
ing could.not have been the success it was.
Thera is onlyone occurrence during the-
evening to be regretted and that is the silly

but many who have used it say that it
quickly kills the thistles and one appli-
cation will reach clear down to the roots:

gentlemen throughout the county have
tried it and testify to its work.
HuMANE ADVICE.— During the un-
settled condition of our streets, which
will probably continue from now until
the first of April, horse owners should
avoid in all cases tieing their animals
besides gutters filled with water from
the melting ice of the streets. No more
cruel act could be innocently perpetra-
ted upon the horse, than to fasten it to a
post, where it is forced to stand with its
feet and lower limbsin ice cold water.
It is to be hoped that all horse owners
will read, and make a note of this im-
portant warning, thereby saving the
horse much suffering. — Ez
‘WHEN QUININE WILL BREAK UP A
Corp.—It 1s surpising,” says a family
physician, “how certainly a cold may be
broken up by a timely dose of quinize.
When first symptoms make their ap-
pearance, when a little lanquor, slight
‘hoarseness and ominous tightness in the
nasal membranes follow exposure to
draughts or sudden chill by wet, five
grains of this useful alkaloid are suffi-
cient in many cases to end the trouble.
But it must be done promptly. If the
golden moment passes, nothing suffizes
to stop the weary sneezes, handkerchief
using, red nose and woe begone looking
periods that certainly follow.” —Ez.
MarY LeATHERS NEFF.—Died at
the residence of her son, Jos. L. Neff, of
Roland, Jan, 31st, 1893, aged 76 years
and one day. The funeral services
were conducted by Rev. Smith, who
delivered a most beautiful and expres-
sive sermon from the text ‘They all
died in the faith, not having received
the promises, but having seen them afar
off, and were persuaded of them, and
embraced them, and confessed that they
were strangers ‘and pilgrims on the
earth.” Notwithstanding the inclemen-
cy of the weather a large concourse fol-
lowed the remains to their final resting
place, in the cemetery ‘at Curtin’s.
Mrs. Neff leaves three children,
Joseph, Thomas and Elizabeth, and a
number ot grandchildren to mourn her
death ; besides three brothers, Jacob,
Samuel and B. T. Leathers and one sis-
| ter, Mrs P. W. Barnhart. She was a
member of the M. E. church for 47
years and in that time lived a true, de-
voted, christian life, as became a consis-
tent member, Her life work here 1s end-
ed, and she has now gone to reap her re-
ward and to enjoy the pleasures of the
blest. Though she has gone she has
left behind a beautiful christian exam-
ple, that will remein long in the mem-
ory of those who know her, Well may
we echo that beautiful passage, ‘Blessed
are they that die in the Lord.”
