Session’s CourT.—Monday morning
the regular August term of Quarter
sessions began in the court house with
Judges Furst, Riley and Faulkner pre-
siding. The unusually large attendance
was the source of considerable comment, |
and it was generally ascribed to the fact
that the people in the country districts
could do nothing, as their farm work
was at a standstill owing to the want of
rain, and took the opportunity of spend-
ing a little time with friends here.
The whole of the morning session was
taken up with the ordinary routine, such
as hearing the reports of Constables,
petitions, etc. Robert Haines Esq., of
Snow Shoe, was appointed foreman of
the grand jury after which the bar com-
mittee on resolutions read the following
on the death of the late James H. Ran-
kin, the oldest practitioner in the courts
of the county :
James H. Rankin, Eeq., wasborn in Belle-
fonte March 3, 1819, and died in the borough
of his birth July 22, 1893. His family was
among the earliest settlers of Penns Valley.
His grandfather, William Rankin, was the
Sheriff of Centre county in 1803,and his father
John Rankin, became Sheriff of Centre coun -
ty in 1812, and held the office of Prothonotary
by two appointments, in 1818 and 1824, for the
term of nine years.
At the time of his death James H. Rankin
was the oldest practicing member of the Cen-
tre county bar. His earliest education was
acquired at the Bellefonte Academy, and af-
terwards he graduated at Jefferson college,
Cannonsburg, Pa. He entered upon the stu-
dy of law in the office of William H. Potter, in
Bellefonte, and was admitted to the bar of
Centre county atthe January term, 1840.
Mr. Rankin filled the office of District At-
torney for the county ot Centre for three
terms, from 1850 to 1859, having been three
time successfully elected to that office during
that period, and we may say his long, active
career of fifty-three years was in connection
with the legal profession, though interrupted
for some years: by his duties as an officer of
the Internal Revenue Department of the
United States. He has spent a life and left a
record of unostentatious labor and zealous
care for the interests entrusted to him.
Resolved, That in the death of James H.
Rankin, Esq., this bar has suffered the loss of
a most highly esteemed member, of whose
generous and good impulse and fraternal
spirit in Jong intercourse we will ever pre-
serve pleasant recollections.
Resolved, That the Bar will attend his fun-
eral, this afternoon, in a body, and as a testi-
mony of our affectionate respect to his mem.
ory the Court, at its next session, be requested
to direct the foregoing minutes and resolu-
tions to be entered upon the records of the
Court of Common Pleas of Centre County.

—President James A. Beaver, of the
Centre county Veterans’ association,
has sent out the following letter of in-
structions to all the old soldiers in the
county. If concerns the annual picnic
of the veterans at Hunter’s park, on the
line of the Bellefonte Central R. R. and
should be read with care by all those
intending going.
The Veteran picnic at Hunter's park,
to-morrow, September 2nd, promises to
be the greatest success in the history of
the Veteran club organization. An
unusual number of distinguished guests
from outside the county will be in at-
tendance, among them ex-Lieutenant
Governor Davies, Judge Greer, of But-
ler, Generals Gregg and Snowden and
probably a number of Congressmen
from Washington, including Stone,
Sibley, Kribbs and others.
Definite arrangements have been
made for railroad fare, within the
county and along the line of the Tyrone
and Clearfield, Bald Eagle Valley and
Tyrone and Lewisburg roads, for one
fare for the round trip, without special
card orders. This is the best rate that
has ever heen given for the purpose and
itis hoped that the old soldiers and
their friends will manifest their appre-
ciation of it by turning out in full force.
A special return train will leave
Bellefonte over the line of the Lewis-
burg road at 7 o’clock p. m., in order to
secure which the guarantee of one hun-
dred passengers leaving in it has been
made. This necessitates a good turnout
from Lemont, Oak Hall, Boalsburg,
Linden Hall, Centre Hall, Rising
Springs and Coburn. Let there be a
generous response to this arrangement,
so that there will be no charge to the
funds of the club for guaranteeing the
train. Centre county hospitality will
be taxed probably to its utmost and
it is important that the baskets
should be large and their contents varied.
Special trains on the the Bellefonte Cen-
tral have been arranged so as to meet all
contingencies, but the arrangement is
flexible and as many can be run as will
be necessary to accommodate the crowds.

——TF'rank S. Herdic,a Williamsport
pool seller who follows up the races, was
arrested and sent up for three months in
Springfield, Mass., on Saturday, for vio-
lating the State statute regarding sel-
ling pools. He was fined $1000 in ad-
dition. :
——The general mercantile store of
J. W. Gardner & Bro., of Tyrone, was
gutted by fire at an early hour last Sat-
urday morning. The loss is estimated

ance. The fire is supposed to have been
of incendiary origin.
—— Madeline Merli, the most talen-
ted emotional actress who has ever visit-
ed Bellefonte, will be here for one per-
formance of ‘‘a story of a kiss” on next
Monday night. She is young, handsome
and an artist of considerable ability.
Her production of “Frou Frou’ here,
last season, was a marked success.
StoLE $11,000 AxD Is Now IN JAIL,
—One of the biggest thefts that has ever
been heard of in this part of the country
was perpetrated at Cross Forks, in Pot-
ter county, on last Thursday morning.
On the Wednesday evening preceding
the day mentioned D. A. Craig arrived
at the boarding house of Isaac Bailey,
in the little back woods town of Cross
Forks. He is a contractor on a lumber
rail-road now being built thiough Pot-
ter county and had come direct from
Buffalo, N.Y. In two satchels he carried
$11,600 in currency with which he
intended paying off his men next day.
When bed-time came Craig was
shown to the room he had been accus-
tomed to occupy and there arranged the
money in pay envelopes for the men.
This being done he put all back in the
satchels and locking the door, went
to bed. When he awoke in the worn-
ing both bags of money were gone and
the empty envelopes were found behind
the house, The lock to the room had
been picked and the thief had suc-
cessfully carried off the plunder.
Forsome reeson, not exactly account-
ed for, suspicion fastened on a Greek nam-
ed John Billy and as he had mysteriously
disappeared, telegrams were sent in every
direction for his apprehension. He was
traced to Renovo and from there to Pad-
dy’s Run whers he wasarrested, on Sat-
urday morning, by Chief of Police, Lee
Berry, of Renovo, Constable John Roon-
ey, of Noyes townshipand Hugh Me-
Gowan. The thief had gotten rid of
$400 of the stolen silver and $1700 were
found on his person. He afterwards
took the officers to tha place where he
had concealed thesatchels and it was all
Fern From His ENGINE — About
noon yesterday a Bald Eagle valley
freight train stopped at Milesburg.
That veteran rail-roader, conductor
James Waddle, had charge of the train
and Wm. Blair, of Lock Haven, was the
engineer. While walking about in the
cab Mr. Blair tripped over the poker
and fell head-first ont onto the track,
He suffered intensely and bis fellow
trainmen put him on a stretcher and
hurriedly brought him to this place,
where railroad physician, Dr Geo. F.
Harris, attended him. - No bones were
broken nor any internal injuries receiv-
ed though his back was badly wrench-
—In June a regular civil service ex-
amination was held in this place and
since then nothing has been heard as to
the result of the four men’s work who !
undertook to pass it. Assistant post- |
master G. W. Reese has informed us
that the Department will forward its’
judgment of that examination in a few
days, Upon its result will depend the
holding of a special examination here
before the next regular one in February.
If none of the applicants have passed
then a special examination will be nec-
essary as a substitute carrier is needed at
the Bellefonte post-office.
——John T. Lucas has been appoint.
ed post-master at Moshannon.
Tae DepicatioN.—The dedicatory
sarvices of the new Lutheran church,
at the corner of Linn and Allegheny
streets, will be held on Sunday morning
at 10:30 o'clock. The morning sermon
will be delivered by Rev. Dr. E. J.
Wolf, professor of church history and
new testament exegesis in the Gettys-.
burg Theological semicary. Rev. Dr.
McKnight, President of Gettysburg
college will deliver the evening sermon.
The public, generally, is invited to be !
present at both services.
new dog tax law has gone into effect
there seems to be an impression abroad,
among owners of dogs, that their ani-
mals can do whatever they please, as
long as the tax is paid, but such is not
the case.
A recent ruling of Judge Furst is to
the effect that any dog when away from
home, unless accompanied by its master,
is a trespasser and can be treated as
such. In the case of Kate Brown, of
Huston township, vs Wesley Straw for
malicious mischief, Straw was acquit-
ted for shooting Mrs. Brown’s dog, on
the ground that it was seven miles from
home and was in Straw’s barn-yard.
This action will be important as estab-
lishing a precedent for similar cases.
passengers boarded the early train over
the B. N. & L., on Monday morning,
and their destination being Camden, N.
J., it did not take the conductor guess-
ing very hard to make up his mind that
a marriage was in the wind and that
Register Roop was being defrauded of
fifty cents for license. The couple are
well known here, but their intended
trip to Camden was a decided surprise.
Not even the parents of the young peo-
ple dreamed of their going away to get
married and didn’t realize the truth un-
til Wednesday evening when they re-
turned for forgiveness and blessings.
David W. Keller, of Axe Mann,
whose business is that of a dairyman in
this place, and Lucy Rice, of Valentine's
works, were the elopers referred to.
Their departure, on Monday morning,
was a surprise to everyone, but now
that they are happily married we trust
that their union will be ene of content-
ment and prosperity. When they return-
ed, on Wednesday evening, their parents
promptly forgave them and a pleasant
reception followed at the home of the
bride’s parents.
