TaE OLD AND THE NEW. —Prompt-
ly at nine o'clock last Monday morning
the members of the borough council
convened for their last go at the busi-
ness of the town. All were thera, bat
Mr. Crissman, from the West ward, and
the fact that he had nt attended more
than three meetings during bis entire
term relieved the other members from
the thought that perhaps his absence
was intended as a kind of insult.
Very little business had been left for
the retiring members to transact and
when the various committees had re-
ported and the usual courtesies extend-
ed to each member by the president, he
adjourned sine die. Treasurer Cooke’s
statement showed that he had $13,675.-
63 on hand ready to be paid over to the
liquidation of the borough indebtedness.
J. W. Gephart was exonerated from
$60, water tax on some property he
owns outside the borough limits, on
which the tax was too high. Street
Commissioner Shaughensy turned in
$20 for cleaning pavements, which own-
ers had neglected, and the Water com-
mittee reported $200 more expended in
plumbing than had been necessary for a
long time. The excess being necessita-
ted by the unprecedented cold.
It was just ten o'clock when ‘Squire
John Blair Linn administered the oath
of office to the new council after which
it effected an organization by electing
George L. Potter president and Isaac
Mitchell clerk, Both were chosen
The retired members were Crissman,
West ward; Jamison, South ward
and Longacre, North ward. They were
succeeded by C. T. Gerberick, Geo. T.
Bush and John C. Miller respectively.
THE NEW COUNCIL AT WORK.
The members of the new borough
council met in executive session on Mon-
day night and began busines furthe year
in a brisk way. After an organization
had been effected President Potter an-
nounced his committees for the ensuing
year as follows:
Water :—Williams, Hillibish and
Street ;-—Dartt, Gerberich and Bauer.
Finance :—Gerberich, Miller and
Fire and Police :—Hillibish, Dartt
Nuisance :--Garman, Dartt and
Market :--Miller, Garman and
Samuel Ryan was retained as super-
intendent of the water works at $2 75
per day, during good behavior. The
police who served so faithfully last year
were re-elected and their salaries placed
at $35 per month. On the question of
Street Commissioner the committee
asked two weeks time in which to fur-
nish a recommendation. The request,
was granted and the old officer, Thos.
Shaughensy, was elected to fill the posi-
tion until his successor is cho sen
Clement Dale was re-elected borough
Solicitor at $50 per annum and David
Butts will succeed himself as borough
Engineer. Calvin Pifer furnished his
bond of $300 and was sworn into the
office of High Constable.
Under the head of new business A.
Lukenbach appeared and asked exon-
eration of taxes for the Y.M.C. A.
building. It was granted.
Burgess Mingle’s report showed $102-
50 fines, etc., collected during the last
year ; $57.50 paid out, leaving a balance
of $45 00 which was turned into the
borough funds. Atter it was read and
the routine of instructions gone through
with council adjourned.
A. PLEASANT SURPRISE.—At the
home of Robt F. Holmes, in Central
City, Bozgs township, a very pleasant
time was spent on Monday, march 6th,
1893. It happened that Mrs. Holmes,
on that day, reached her 49th mile stone,
and while busy at her every day work,
her home was invaded by about forty-
five of her friends and relatives from far
and near, every one loaded down with
filled baskets and armsfull of the best
that the season affords. Handsome
presents of all kinds were also carried in.
They then sent for Mr. Holmes who
was busy selling goods at his store, but
as he was wanted immediately at the
house he left the store in charge of his
partner, Mr. Newman. When he saw
the crowd in and around his home
he was about to do something desperate
but matters wereexp'ained to him and
he allowed the crowd to take charge
and run things to suit themselves. The
day was spent very pleasantly and Mr.
Holmes wishes that in the future his
wife will have about two birthdays ev-
ry year. Hesays he felt so young
that evening that he took one of his
courting spells and did not retire until
one o'clock in the morning Mr. and
Mrs. Holmes unite in extending heart-
felt thanks to all who were present,
and all are invited to go again.

commenting on the death of the late
Wm. F. Reynolds, a writer in the
Philipsburg Ledger concludes as follows:
“It is a little remarkable that none of
Bellefonte's wealthy men make any be-
quests to the academy, the institution in
which many of them got their educa-
tion, and which is and ever has been an
honor to the town. Let us hope it will
not always be so. j

Tue NEw PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
AT BoALsBURG.— The dedicatory ser-
vices of the new Presbyterian church
which stands on the old Academy site
took place last Sunday morning. The
services were conducted by Rev.
Haney, of State College, pastor in i
charge, assisted by Revs. A. A. Black
and Hughes, of Bellefonte.
Less than six months ago a meeting
of the small band of Presbyterians, in
and about Boalsburg, was called to dis-
cuss the erection of a house of worship
in that locality. Those present were
unanimously of one mind and heart.
Subscriptions were at once started and
a building committee appointed. The
charter was granied by the court of
Quarter Sessions also appointing as
Trustees Col. Jas* T. Stuart, Jacob
Weber, Krank McFarlane, Wm. Go-
heen and David Sparr.
The building committee consisted of
Hon. W. A. Murray, Dr. John Woods,
Wm. Goheen, Col, J.T. Stuart, Wm.
McFarlane, Mrs. Matthew C. Woods,
Mrs. E. E. Stuart and Mrs, Alice
Magofin. This energetic committee
soon secured means enough to justify
the adoption of plans and specifications.
C. H. Evey was awarded the contract,
mechanics were put to work at once and
in a short time the building assumed
proportions and would have been com-
pleted in sixty days had their not been
The building is frame, 85x50 feet.
Arched ceiling 22 feet in height. The |
plastering was done by Koon and Hook, |
the painting by Weber Bros. The style
and finish, both inside and out, is uni-
que and beautiful. The inside is wains-
Tbe windows are arched as are the
doors and pulpit recess. The Wood's
memorial wirdow in the front of the
church was put in by members of the
Woods family in memory of Rev. M.
Cyrus Woods, who died in Philadelphia
a few years ago, and whose widow is
now a resident of Boalsburg. Through
her efforts the stained glass for the side
lights was secured at greatly reduced
rates, and windows of real artistic merit
were made possible through her taste
The church is well lighted by a large
chandelier, the gift of the State College
congregation. The organ, the altar,
the carpet and some chairs were furnish-
ed by the Ladies committee. The pul-
pit, the gift of Wm. McFarlane, was ar-
tistically designed and skilfully made
out of light and dark walnut by F. W,
Weber. The three walnut pulpit chairs
were presented to the church by Harry
Stewart, of Philipsburg, ard the build-
ing committee deserve much credit for
the substantial and comfortable oak
seats they selected.
After the religious services were con-
cluded the audience was surprised and
gratified to hear ttat the entire debt
had been settled. Certainly it was a
wonderful record for a congregation
that numbers less than forty members,
and the noble way in which they met
their obligations should be an example
and an incentive to larger companies of
#Guod’s people.” God blesses the people
with full and plenty and why, in tarn,
should they not do something for him ?
Excellent music was furnished by a
large choir with Miss Laura Woods as
organist and March 5th, 1893 will long
be remembered by the Presbyterians of
Boalsburg and the vicinity.
GirLs WHITHER ARE You DRIFT-
ING ?—The Philipsburg Journal mor- |
alizes as follows on the growing. vice
brought about by improper training of
girls in their own homes.
Girls, young girls, giddy girls, foolish
girls, disobedient girls—girls generally
inclined to be bad, must be counseled,
pursued, checked, or if necessary forced
to desist from their inclinations, or their
fate will be that of misery, agony re-
morse and death. The world 1s full of
snares, allurement, and foot 1alls into
deep pits of disgrace for girls; but there
are scores of signal lights, many warn-
ings, loving pleading for prudence on
their part, so that, there is no reason
why any girl, any young woman
should go astray, as in common par-
lance, personal indiscretion of the sex is
ealled. There is not enough common
sense teaching at home on this subject—-
not the outspoken counsel in the church
nor the unvarnished advice of decent
people in this matter which its impor-
tance demands. We all mince our
words too much when talking to our
children on these subjects ; mothers do
not take their daughters as much ‘into
their confidence as they should, which

Liquor LICENSES GRANTED.—AIll
week there has been a scene of unusual
activity about the Court House, due to
the interest taken in the License court
proceedings. On Tuesday the forty-five
applicantsappeared, with their attorneys,
and endeavored to convince the eourt
that their application was an absolute
necessity in the community they repre-
sented. A few remonstrances were
filed and the court announced that it
would consider the cases and announce
its decision just as svon as possible. On
Wednesday evening it had disposed of
them all and filed the successful names

Hicks Says 11 WILL Bk This Way.
— Weather prophet Hicks predicts one of
the most dangerous storms of the sea-
son for the 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th of
the month. He says: “This period is
at the eiectric crisis of the earth’s vernal
equinox. It is a regular storm period,
intensified by the equinozes of Mars,
earth and the moon’s last quarter on
the 10th. A very warm wave, attend-
ed by heavy clouds and lightning and
thunder, will appear with heavy rain in
southern sections, turning to violent
blizzards and snow blockades in north-
erly regions. Wherever the distur-
bances are ushered in with warm, sultry
weather, south winds and electric dis-
play, it will be prudent to watch the
cyclonic movements, which, should they
appear, will break into tornadoes along
the south side of the low barometer.”
