TION. —By a vote of eight to one at its
regular semi-monthly meeting on Mon-
day night council decided that cows could
have the liberty of the streets of Belle-
fonte just the same as they had been
previousiy enjoying. Tne question as to
whether the ordinance prohibiting cows |
from running at large should be passed
or not had been agitating our people for
some time and the fact that council did
not pass it was evidence that the ma-
jority of our people were opposed to
the measure.
The first regular business taken up
was the consideration of a request from
F. W. Crider to allow him to attach a
two inch water pipe to the main on Al-
legheny street for the convenience of
people residing in the Exchange. Per-
mission was granted. He also offered to
pay half the expense of fixing up the
alley leading from Linn to Curtin street.
between the properties of J. D. Shugart
and C. P. Hewes. The alley is in bad
condition and the matter was referred to
the Street committee.
The request of Beaver street residents
for a board walk along Ridge street, be-
tween Beaver and Curtin, was referred
to the Street committee. D. F. Fort-
ney’s suggestion for a sewer on east
Bishop street, with which to run the sur-
face waters off in times of rain, was lost
sight of in the cow discussion that came
up at this point.
Council appropriated $200 to each of
the Steamer companies and $50 to the
Hook and Ladder Co for current expen-
ses. The Logan company proposes pur-
chasing a team of horses for their en-
gine and asked the borough for its haul-
ing, so far as possible, the request was
A stone crusher will probably be
purchased with which to crush stones
for the streets.
The water committee reported that
the big spring had been cleaned out and
that the fire had been drawn from No 2
boiler at the works so #s to permit of
replacing the brick casing which had
fallen down.
Atter the report of the Finance com-
mittee and the passage of a number of
minor expense bills council adjourned.
Barror.—The directors of the public
schools of Centre county met in conven-
tion in the Court House, in this place, at
one o'clock on Tuesday and proceeded
to elect a county superintendent for the
ensuing term of three years.
The convention was called to order by
Sup’t Cephus L. Gramley who, after
reading the act of 1854 designating
the manner of procedure, declared the
offices of president, reading clerk and
tellers open for nomination. D. F.
Fortney Esq., president of the Belle-
fonte school board, was the unanimous
choice for president. W. K. Alexander
Esq., of Millheim was made reading
clerk in the same way as was also tel-
lers Miss Elizabeth Shortlidge, of this
place, and Wm. E. Irvin Esq. of Phil-
The roll call showed the presence of
one hundred and forty-eight directors
and as the law required a majority of
all directors present for choice, it was
seen that the man who was to be elected
must have at least seventy-five votes.
The convention having declared it-
self ready for action the names of C. L.
Gramley, of Miles township; H. C.
Rothrock, of Harris township and Prof.
C. R. Neff, of Potter township were
quickly presented. Reading clerk Al-
exander began calling the roll and be-
fore he had gone very far it became
evident that Mr. Gramley would suc-
ceed himself The result of the first
ballot was Gramley, 101 ; Rothrock, 13;
and Neft 37. Three directors having
voted who were not present at roll call,
after the reading of several resolutions
the meeting adjourned.
As to the selection of Mr. Gramley it
can be said to have been a good one as
might also have been said had either of
the other aspirants been successful. The
three candidates were all amply quali-
fied to make careful and satisfactory
officials and the convention could not
have made a mistake even if it had
The base ball season will open at State
College tomorrow, Saturday, morning at
10:15 o'clock, sharp, when the Bucknell
University team will cross bats with the
College boys on Beaver field. The
game is being looked forward to with
much interest by the students as it will
be the first appearance of the College
team pitted against rivals worthy their
best efforts.
Since the Spring of '90 State College
has done very little in the way of base
ball and this early opening of the game
seems ’specially auspicious. There is
plenty of excellent ‘material in the
institution if it is properly trained, and
there is no reason why P. 8. C’s re-
cord on the diamond should not be as
brilliant as it has been between the goals.

ENp.—Rafting is becoming more and
more a novelty in Clearfield county as the
years go by and every year excursion
parties avail themselves of the opportu-
nity to go ‘‘through the mountains’ on
a real timber raft. This growing curi-
osity isnot to be wondered at, even when
found in native Clearfielders, because
the rapid and crooked Susquehanna
passes through more wild and more pic-
turesque mountain scenery than almost
any other river in the United States.
Contrary to a geographical law this
wonderful river cleaves the mountains
and is put down in the books as the on-
ly river of note in the world which bears
this distinction. Who the first pilot
was who searched out the course and
made the first perilous trip with raft or
rafts is not known, but it will not be
hard to keep watch for the last man who
will try it.— Clearfield Spirit.
MARRIED.--On Wednesday April
26th, Constans C. Curtin and Miss Em-
ma Hufford were united in matrimony
at the residence of the bride’s parents in
Lock Haven. The mother of the groom
being invalided at her home near
Roland, the young married people came
at once to see her, and that evening her
home was the scene of wedding festivi-
ties. While Mrs. Curtin in her anima-
ted and felicitous way was laying out a
program of amusements for the evening,
calithumpian serenaders outside began a
medley of discords and hideous noises ;
then as though by magic, all ceased,
and there was nothing remaining but the
monotonous quiet of the country night
to engage the thoughts. Suddenly out
of this came the musical and refreshing
strains of a brasss band. It was the
band from Roland, Mr. John Barger,
leader, a band with a history, and, since
its fine performance on this occasion, we
are proud to say, a band with a destiny,
one that should be a permanency in the
community. After the presentation of
the bride and groom, by Mr. I. M.{Har-
vey, to the bandsmen, coffee, ice cream,
cake &2 was served by the ladies, Mrs,
I. M. Harvey and Mrs. Jos. Funk tak-
ing charge, while Miss Rebecca Harvey
and Miss Elsie Funk served the guests,
assisted by Gussie Shope.
Afterwards there was a formal pre-
sentation of the bride's cake, the
thoughts which the spokesman, R. C.
Irvin, voiced having been dictated by
the groom’s mother. In substance
words of advice when uttered. The
cake was given in token of the maternal
love and blessing. Singular enough, it
was the advice of Polonius to Lautes,
if only in substance, for all else is bnt
the setting to this gem ot wisdom in the
way of good worldly advice :
Neither a borrower nor a lender be :
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
A borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

his return had stopped off in the Mou n-
tain city, to visit his daughter Maggie,
who is married to Robert Roan and re-
sides in that place. The cause of his
death is not definitely known, but it is
generally supposed that either heart
disease or an apoplectic stroke occusion-
ed his sudden demise.
Tae naws of his death cama like a
thunder clap to his many friends here
and it hardly seems possible that the
genius who left here only five days
since, teeming with hops for the inven-
tion on which he was busily engaged,
is now cold in the embrace of death.
George W. Rodgers was born in this
place on the 28th day of August 1839,
being a son of William and Eliza
Rodgers, whose old howe at the Valen-
tine iron works is still standing. His
early days were spent in acquiring an
education, but just as soon as he was old
enough his father took him to learn the
trade of a machinist. His natural
adaptability and inherited talent for
mechanical work made him an apt ap-
prentice and his first work gave evi-
dence of a useful future.
On October 19th. 1865 he married
Kate E. McFadden, of Lowisburg, five
children, by name : Charles, Maggie,
William, Clarence and Nellie, blessed
their union. Charles, the oldest, hav-
ing met a tragic death in a rail-road
wreck, near Irwin, on the P. R. R, two
years ago.
Mr. Rodgers was employed in var-
ious ways in Bellefonte, but his in-
ventive genius continually asserting it-
self made him a man more devoted to
original mechanics than to the routine
of an engineer's or machinist’s life.
From varioug little inventions his am-
bition led him to more complicated de-
vices and the number of his patents
now on the market ure not few by any
means, though their inventor was prac-
tically robbed of any income from his
patents. His later days have been
spent in perfecting a hot air heating ap-
paratus for railroad cars which has ab-
sorbed his attention and energy for a
long time. The invention promised a
wonderful one, in substantiation of
which statement we need but say that
a New York Co., had placed a train of
cars and an engine, on Long Island, at
his disposal for experimental purposes.
Most of the past winter he had spent work-¢
ing on his patent, but, how sad, just
when fortune seamed within his grasp
death came to claim its victim and rob
Bellefonte of one who would have added
another name to her listjof illustrious.
Deceased was a man of gentle, unas-
was to make a success of his profession.
In his home he was an honored father
and a devoted husband. His remains
will be brought herein the morning and
funeral services will be held at his late
home on West Curtin street. The day
for the funeral has not been set.
Nor Muce Donk AT CourT.—The
second week of the April court began
Monday morning with the considera-
tion of the Dooley — Krumbine case,
which was carried to court by Mr.
Krambine, who appealed from the de-
cision of the commission which was ap-
pointed to look into the mental con-
dition of the late Patrick Dooley, pre-
vious to his death. Two commissions
had declared him insane, and one
thought that his mind was all right.
The case was brought to have the de-
cision of a jury on the matter. It arose
out of Mr. Krumbine’s, a son-in-law,
having laid claim to all of decedent’s
property by virtue of deeds made to
him or his child, a granddaughter of
decedent. Thesedeeds were declared to
have been made by said decedent when
of unsound mind and Patrick and Mag-
gie his children brought suit to recover
their home. The case has aroused
much interest in thie community and
the jury's return of a verdict that the
late Patrick Dooley was insane from
April 1890,date of his wife's death,
until his own demise hence all transac-
tions between himself and his son-in-
law, Geo. W. Krumbine, were void, |

knew the nature of the case.

zsT Kinp.—Council little thought, on
Monday night, when it was acting on
the ordinance to prohibit cows from
running at large on the streets that in
its failure to pass the ordinance it was
violating the constitution. All kinds of
class legislation is strictly prohibited
by the constitution and this is exactly
what council has been guilty of. Al-
ready there is an ordinance prohibiting
the male species of the genus bovine
from running at large, and how our
worthy borough dads could find their
way clear to discriminate in favor of the
gentler sex without violating constitu-
tional mandates is something we are en-
tirely at a loss to see. Of course the old
women bovines might have brought
some pressure to bear in their favor,
but what it could have been no one but
the councilmen know.

TURED.--On January 30th, Steve Co-
diak, a Slav, killed John Brown, at
Amesville, a short distance from Houtz-
dale, and though every effort was put
forth to apprehend him, all was in vain.
Last week the constable of Osceola re-

stating that a man calling himself Steve
Codiak had been arrested at that place
and also that he had confessed to the
Brown murder. Constable Burns has
sent for a picture of the confessed mur-
