longing to the Valentine Iron company’
| on Saturday last, Mr. Harry Valentine,
who has charge of that department of
the company’s works, took: particular
pains to try to impress the workmen
with the belief that the reason for the
stoppage was the fear of a reduction of
the tariff by a Democratic congress.
We have no complaint to make Dbe-
cause Mr. Valentine is a bigoted-dyed-
in-the-wool protectionist. He has a
right to his beliefs just as every other
citizen, and has likewise a right to air
them when and where he thinks proper,
but we submit that it is neither the sen-
sible nor creditable thing to do, for the
poor purpose of making political capi-
tal, to attempt to discredit the property
of the company that employs him, by
leaving the impression that it is worth
nothing except as the government taxes
others for its protection.
Mr. Valentine knows as well as he
knows where the Nigh bank is located,
that fear of a reduction of the tariff, or
that Democratic success last fall, has
nothing to do with closing down the
banks of their company. He knows
that the trouble with the iron industry
is an over-production that has: gorged
every iron market in the country to the
extent that the supply exceeds the de-
mand, and that this over-production is
the direct result of the fictitious stimu-
lus given this'industry by an excessive
Republican protective tariff.
In addition to these facts he knows,
that with any reasonable demand for
iron within the country, that both the
Valentine Iron Co., and the Bellefonte
Furnace Company could manufacture
and sell iron, at a profit, if there was
not a cent of tariff upon it ; The r loca-
tion, facilities and surroundings, being
such, that their are no furnaces in this
country, or for that matter in Europe,
that can turn out the quality of iron
they produce at & less cost than they
It is this fact that adds so much to
the value of both these plants, and it is
a surprise to us that any one connected
with them or interested in their success
should be-little their facilities for the
cheap production of iron, and detract
from their value because of these facili-
ties, by asserting that they can only be
run at a profit when the public is fleec-
ed by tariff laws to protect them.
If Mr. Valentine desires to make
capital against the Democratic party,
he should do it in some other way than
by casting suspicion upon the value of
the property of the company that em-
ploys him.
Our BuiLpine THIS SUMMER.—AcC-
cording to an estimate made recently
from observation of the building being
done in Bellefunte there are over $45,000
worth of work and material in residence
and other like buildings that are just
about completed. Quite a fair showing
for such a dull season.
The structures are the following :
On Bishop street the new Catholic par-
sonage will cost $5,000. It will be of
brick and stone ; the dwelling houses of
Christ Swartz and Frank Déitrick will
cost $1,800 and $1500 respectively. H.
Y. Stitzer’s double tenement house, on
east High street, will be of brick and
will cost $3,600. John C. Miller is
building for himself a $4,000 home on
east Linn street, while W. Fred Rey-
nolds is building a brown stone stable
and coachman’s house on his property
that will cost $6,000. © Jim Barnhart’s
nest for his bride, on north Thomas
street, is a cosy little frame structure
that cost him $2,000. Barber William
Storm’s queen Anne home, on Spring
street, will be a beauty for $4,000. The
improvements to Jas. Harris & Co's
hardware building have been extensive
and will cost at least $4,500. The Elec- |
tric Light Company is making improve-
ments to the extent of $4,500 and A. V,
Smith is doing a little building on his
Thomas streetlot which will cost him
geveral hundred dollars.
Allowing about $5,000 for minor im-
provements, of which we usnally hear
nothing it will be seen that notwithstand-
ing all the cries of dull times Bellefonte
has been pretty steadily at work during
the season. :
day evening, about eight o'clock, Char-
ley Shearer, a blacksmith whose shop ig
located near the Phoenix flour mill, was
on his way home with both arms full of
purchases he had made for his family.
He turned into High street off, Allegh-
eny, and had just reached the entrance
to the Brockerhoff house bar room when,
without the slightest provocation or a
word of warning, Sammy Meese, an iron
worker by trade, who has been employ-
ed on the new rail-road, struck him just
over the right eye with such force as to
knock him clear off his feet and cut an
ugly gash in his fore head.
Meese was arrested and taken to the
lock-up where he remained until ‘Wed-
nesday morning, when he was taken to
jail to await trial for assault and battery.

them that there will be short crops of
potatoes and corn this fall. The recent
dry spell has seriously affected the carn,
i and potatoes will be small because the
inning game at Renovo, on Tuesday, by | stalks died before the tubers had grown
to full size.
Secretary Edge, of the State Board of
Agriculture, bas prepared the following
crop report: The crops of corn and
late potatoes are sufficiently advanced
to show conclusively that the recent
drought will greatly reduce their yield-
ings. As a natural consequence corn for
future deliverey will advance in price
and the price of potatoes must neces-
sarily go higher. The same cause has
decreased the yield and size of ap-
ples and peaches, but will increase their
flavor and quality. The crop of black-
berries was practically cut down 75 per
cent. and the few that wire picked were
inferior in quality and size. In many
places the grape crop has been very
much decreased, but the unusual num-
ber of bunches seton the vines may,
with good weather, make up for the de-
«In Southeastern Pennsylvania dairy-
men have been compelled to feed hay
and grain to their cows to make up for
the great decrease in the amount of pas-
ture. Many of them have contracts
calling for a definite number of quarts
of milk per day, and the supply must
be kept up either by purchase or by in-
creased feed. The general feeling among
stockmen is that feed and provender of
all kinds must necessarily advance as
winter approaches, and that hay espe-
cially will command better prices before
remarkable old gentleman leaned over
the sill of our window on last Saturday
afterncon, and his cheery disposition
forced us to lay down our pen for a few
moment’s chat with him. It was the
venerable William Reed, of Buffalo Run,
whom nine-tenths of the people whom
he meets would suppose to have not yet
reached his seventieth year, when in
truth ke has already passed the eighty-
second mile stone of his life. He does
not look a day older than he did a de-
cade since and the same pleasant man-
ner that inspired our respect in younger
days now demands more than the usual
honor to old age.
Mr. Reed moved into the Buffalo Run
valley when this century was. quite
young in history and for more than fif-
ty years has been one of its most reputa-
ble husbandmen. He has seen many
of the best families grow and prosper,
and to-day delights in reminiscences of
how many of us got started in life.
Perhaps the most peculiar incident in
Mr. Reed’s own history is the fact that
notwithstanding he has always been a
staunch Republican, his four sons are
every one Democrats of the most Jack-
sonian stripe. Though so far advanced
in years this genial old man still does
considerable work about the farm and
during the rush in the last hay-making
season took a hand in the field along
with the rest of the boys.
A Nortep CrtizeN oF HARRIS TowN-
saip DeEaD.—The death of William
McFarlane, of Harris township, this
county, which occurred at his country
Lome, near Boalsburg, on last Saturday
morning at half past three o'clock, re-
moves from this section of the State one
of the best known citizens and agricul-
turists. For some time previous to his
death he had been indisposed, but not
until two weeks ago was he compelled
to take his bed. Even then nothing se-
rious was thought of and his death, fol-
lowing so soon, was a great shock to
the host of friends who now mourn with
the bereaved family.
Deceased was born at Slab Cabin,
near his late home, about seventy years
ago, and when quite a young man was
married to Miss Margaret Kyle, of
Mifflin county. Three children blessed
this union, J. Kyle, of this place, Frank
and Janette, who live at home. Mrs.
McFarlane died about twenty eight
years ago, her husband having lived to
be honored by all who knew him.
He owned considerable farming land in
this county and was heir to the McFar®
lane hard ware store, in this place, which
his brother the late Col. Robert McFar-
lane left. In church life he was a
working Presbyterian and to his zealous
efforts the church at Boalsburg largely
owes ts present cosy home. The funer-
al was held on Tuesday morning, inter-
ment being made at slab cabin grave

place, at the vesidence of Dr. J. E.

known to many of our readers. She

EAGLE. —A slight wreck occurred on the
Bald Eagle valley railroad, on last Sat-
urday morning, which might have been
disastrous. Day express left this place
on time and had made the run to Snow
Shoe Intersection without urusual in-
cident. There the engine stopped for
water leaving the passenger coaches ex-
tended back along the track, the rear
coach a little past the point of intersec-
tion of the road to Snow Shoe snd the
Bald Eagle tracks. During the stop
the pay train ran in from Snow Shoe at
a fair speed and when the engineer
went to stop his train the brakes worked
all right but the wheels slid rapidly
along the rails, the result being that the
engine of the pay train crashed into the
rear coach on the express dumping it
over against the fence.
About sixty passengers were in the
wrecked car and some of them were
badly bruised, though none were ser-
jously hurt. Mrs, N.E. Walker, of
Jersey Shore, J. C. Breen, of Utica, N.
Y. were both sufferers from a number
of bumps. Mrs. Minnie Harper, of
