case during the past summer months, it
will be doubly welcome.
——1In China a class of woman ap-

——The Demorests play here to-day

“Governors” should attend the game
and give our boys all the encourage-

close and exciting contest,
——Philipsburg’s Board of Health has
expended a half a "hundred dollars in
complying with the law. We haven’t
heard that Bellefonte’s Board of Health
has expended a balf acent. In fact we
havern’t heard that we have a board of
Health or that one is needed.
——The 30th of this month is the
last day the tax-payers have to save the
five per cent. abatement allowed for
advance payments. Itis worth work-
ing to make this point. Five per cent,
sixty days, means thirty per cent per
annum,-—a figure far above the highest
rate of interest the most sordid Shylock
could hope for.
~—1In dull periods of all markets is
the proper time to do generous adver-
tising. Itis indeed, the only true pro-
cess to scoop in customers who are
abroad hunting for bargains in mid
summer. Make it advantageous for
buyers and they will clear the goods
from your shelves, if prices for them are
right, and the course to prove that they |
are is to advertise. {
—— Bellefonte’s Board of Trade is in !
high hopes of being instrumental in se- |
curing the location of a number of new |
enterprises at this place. It might be
well for the merchants, who are mem-
bers of that body, to try to adopt some
means to secure the trade of the sur-
rounding farming communities that has
long been lost to them, in consequence
of a want of market for farm procucts.
On Tuesday evening about eight o’clock,
Mr. E. H. Carr of Milesburg, one of
the best known and most highly res-
pected citizens of the county, met with
an accident that ended his life shortly
afterwards. He had been out in the
neighborhood of Pleasant Gap, arrang-
ing the sale of some farm implements, a
business he was engaged in, and while
driving down a steep hill near the resi-
dence of Mr. John Bilger, his horses
became unmanageable and started to
runaway. Inhis efforts to stop them, by
turning them into the fence, his buggy
was overturned and he was thrown out
receiving internal injuries from which
he failed to recover. He was picked up |
and taken to the residence of Mr. Bilger,
where everything that kind hands and
medical skill could do, was done to re-
lieve his sufferings, but to no purpcse.
After lingering until two o’clock on
Wednesday, his spirit passed quietly
away. Thebody was taken to his home
in Milesburg and will be buried in the
cemetery at that place.
Mr. Carr was about sixty five yearg
of age. A man of the highest character
and commanding the esteem of all who
knew him, In his manner he was
quiet and unasuming, and in his
dealings with his fellow man was
straight forward and strictly honest.
His loss will be keenly felt not only by
his stricken family, but by the entire
community in which he resided.
many townships of the county, supervis-
ors have the custom of doing what re-
pairing the roads need after the seeding
is done, and most of the fall work on the
farm is through with. ‘Where the roads
are stone and but little earth is used in
the repairs, this time of year is probably
as good » time as any, although it
Jeaves a rough road for sledding over in‘
the winter, the stones not having time
to pack or the road to become smooth
before winter sets in. It is to the folly
of making repairs to clay or mud roads,
in the fall, that we want to call atten-
tion too. All along the Bald Eagle
Valley, in parts of Ferguson, College,
and in fact nearly every township in the
county. many miles of the public roads
are of clay alone, and where these are
ploughed up and scraped, or dug up and
elevated in the fall, it is simply that
much money thrown away, for the rea-
son that theroad has not time to pack un-
til the fall rains come—then the freezing
weather—then the spring rains—and
by the, time these are over, all the dirt
that was shoveled up out of the ditches
is back in them again, and the road
beds are as flat as ever. If there are
clay roads to. repair, put off the work
until spring and let the summer travel
harden the roads before they freeze up,
and you will see that the work will last
years and years longer than fall fixed
roads. At least this has been the expe-
rience of every district that has experi-
mented in making roads.
meeting of Democratic clubs at Allen-
town, on the 26th inst, promises to be
one of the largest and most important
meetings of the kind that has been held
within the state. Clubs from every prom-
inent place in the State will be present
either in bodies or will be represented
by delegates. The most distinguished
speakers in the country will be on hand.
Prominent representatives of the party
in the State will be in attendance.
Bands will be there in profusion. Al-
lentown will have on its holiday dress,
and the doors of her hospitable people
will be open to welcome the representa-
tives of Demoracy. What is our Belle-
fonte club, going todo aboutit? As
yet it has no delegates chosen, nor do
we see any signs of any movement to
to select them, We ought to have a
delegation there. It would do our Cen-
tre county Democrats good to go down
and participate in a real Democratic
meeting, held among the sturdy Demo-
crats of the Tenth Legion. In fact
every club in the country should send
representatives, and the WATCHMAN
hopes they will.
It won’t do for our Republican neigh-
bors down in Union county to have
much to say in the future about White
Caps, KluKlux, and like organizations
down south ; or at least not as long as
their own people, take the law in their
hands, as they did in the following in-
stance which we get from the Mifflin-
burg Herald. “On Saturday night
white-caps treated a citizen of West
Fayette to a little discipline, that while
unlawful and reprehensible, may prove
salutary to him and others of similar
loose morals. It seems that for some-
time he, although a man of a family,
has becn running after and devoting his
attention to a single woman, to the grief
of his wife and disrepute of the neigh-
borhood On that night he was caught
his long bushy whiskers partly shaved |
oft, tried, condemned to death and puta !'
rope around his neck for execution, |
Like all cowardly transgressors, hegbeg= |
ged pitiously for mercy, which was'
granted, on condition that bie turns over
a new leaf, which promise bie nad better
never ehirk,”

——The full moon that occurs nearest
the autumnal equinox is popularly
termed the harvest moon, This year its
soft benignant and mysterious light will
shine at the full on September 25, or three
days after the sun has passed the line.
——According to statistics the Luth-
eran synod of Pennsylvania numbers
291 ministers, 471 congregations, 115,-
890 communicants at present. The
grand total of contributions for church
and charity amounts to $613.959, and
$70,725 of this passed through the hands
of the treasurer.
——The cornfields throughout the
County, since the heavy wind-storm of
a couple of weeks ago, have anything
but an inviting look to the crop gath-
erer. In some places itis as flat as if
rolled down, and in most instances is so
tangled up that: it will be almost "im-
possible to cut and shock it.
——The finest specimen of the Nia-
gara grape ever presented to our view
and delectation, was a bunch from a
vine grown by Mr. John Wagner of
this place. It measured eight inchesin
length and the grapes were so massed
that had an artist thus painted them he
would certainly have been accused of
over drawing nature.
——Miss Savanah Weaver, daughter
of Moses Weaver of Port Matilda, died
at Tyrone at the early age of 16 years 2
months and 6 days. Her remains were
interred in the M. E. cemetery at Port
Matilda, Saturday September 9, Rev G.
P. Sarvis officiating, assisted by Rev.
Jackson. She died leaving bright evi-
dence of her fitness for a better world.
——The Armor Will case, which pro-
voked such general interest last week,
and even caused the elite of our ladies to
throng the court room, is settled for the
present. The jury were locked . up in
the jury room all of Thursday night and
until ten o’clock on Friday morning be-
fore they had agreed upon their verdict,
that the will should be set aside. No
allusion was made in the verdict to the
point of “undue influence” emphasized
in the trial, but it declared that Mrs,
Ruth Armor was not in a sound state of
mind at the time the will was made,
and that, therefore, it could not have
been planned by her in the form it was
financially revealed. What further dis-
position will be made of the case is not
known at present.
—— Our correspondent at Port Ma-
tilda writes that the Methodist Episco-
pal congregation, at Hannah, held a
picnic a few days since in the Willow
Grove near that place, which was not
only largely attended but a success in
every particular. During the day a
Bible presentation, and a very appro-
priate address to the Sabbath school of
the above place, was made by Rev G.
P. Sarvis, pastor of the church. Rev,
'W. Cramer, pastor of the U. B. church
at Port Matilda and daughter were
among the happy throng and seemed to
enjoy themselves largely. Music was
served by the Stormstown Cornet Band.
The boys are young both in years and
practice but discoursed some very fine
music to the satisfaction of all present.
ee A great deal has been said and
printed of late upon the alleged appear-
ances, on our streets, at night of some
person or persons dressed in black cloaks
and wearing masks to the terror of all
within their sight. Whether the so-
called ‘‘spooks’’ have been engaged in
their work of terrorizing the citizens,
we know not, but one thing we do
know, and that is, that either the actual
appearance or the alleged appearance ot
the same, will be conferring a great
benefit on some of the youth of this
town, if they are thereby influenced to
remain at home where they can spend
their leisure hours in reading or study-
ing, instead of wasting so many hours,
as the nights go by, running the streets
and loafing on the corners.
——A drive down through the Nit-
tany valley and across to Mill Hall,
will reveal the fact that a great amount
of hustling is going on just at present
among the railroad builders. It is the
intention, we believe, to have the road |
completed by Dec. 1st. When that
point is reached in the progress of that
grand enterprise, then we can reasona-
bly hope to see new industrial enterpri-
ses created in our midst. Plenty of rail-
roads generally means plenty of business, |
and if such competition, in the nature of !
things, should offer inducements to man- |
| uets, to come and locate here where ore, |
i hig " > |
{ at the home of his inamorata, taken out, |
ufacturers, of every form ‘of iron prod-
coke, lime, sand, coal and first class wa-
ter power are abundant, then, in the
near future, we can expect to see every
tactory in Bellefonte running at full
blast, and many new enterprises started
in the way of iron manufactures that we
never have had before. Such a flood of
success cannot come in on us any too
soon. {
—The Pennsylvania State College
opened for another year’s successtul work
on Tuesday last. The excellent reputa-
tion that our Centre county institution
now enjoys, wherever her work is known,
has attracted to the College a Freshman
class of eighty students, the largest ac-
cession of new students in its history.
And the new fellows impress one as be-
| ing more mature and manly than usual.
They are students, for the most part,
whose preparation has been received at
. first class preparatory schools so that the
| College will be benefited by having so
many new men enter that will be able
"to appreciate to the full, the supericr
advantages it offers and eventually be-
come graduates who will do honor to
themselves and to their alma mater. It's
a source of gratification to all friends of
the College to know that its popularity,
among young men seeking a thorough
practical education is increasing so rap-
idly, and it is certainly hoped that the
day may come when the elass of the Col-
lege will number in the hundreds. For
hundreds there are who need just such
an education as this institution, but
twelve miles distant, affords. The new
mining department recently established
of which a thorough description has
been detailed in a former issue of the
WATCHMAN, opens most auspiciously,
there being students in every class. We
expect to hear great things from this
new feature of the College work, because
it is under the supervision of instructors
of experience ard reputation. While
the future will undoubtedly bring
grand results in the intellectual chan-
nels of the work, there is another inter-
esting prospect to which we must allude
to make one observation complete and
that is the foot ball. Better material
will be on hand this year for a winning
team, than ever before, and if some of
the leading foot ball teams in the state
are not forced to lower their colors by
the prowess of the State College team
before Thanksgiving day has come and
gone, our calculations will have missed
the mark widely. Happy success to
you faculty and students, for another
year in every good work you under-
GINE OwNERs.—Centre county is full
of traction engines. One meets them on
every road and at times and places very
unexpected. While the owners, in
most instances, are careful and consid-
| erate of the public welfare, there are
some who seem to think that they have
the same rights to the public roads that
others have, and that ea¢h one is requir-
ed to look out for themselves. That they
have the right to use the public road is
certain, but it is also certain that their
| are restrictions placed upon them which
they are obliged to recognize and obey,
or, be subject to fines and penalties
which would be onerous and oppres-
give. The law as it stands requires
“gvery engine propelled by steam to
have a man at least 300 yards ahead of
his engine to warn persons riding or
driving upon any public road, of the
fact that the engine is coming, and also
assist!’ in the ‘‘management’’ of any
horses that may require his assistance to
control.” It also requires the engines
to berun as far as practicable to the
sides of the road and to remain station-
ary until said horses have passed to a
safe distance in the meantime making
as little noise as possible with the steam.
The penalty for failing to comply with
the act is a fine of ten dollars and costs.
The law further requires him to have a
printed copy posted on his engine under
the fine of not less than ten dollars.
News has reached this place of the death
of Mr. David Furey, formerly of this
county at his home in San Bernandine,
California, which occurred on the ever-
ing of the 26th ult, of paralysis of the
heart. His death was sudden and un-
expected, having complained, as we un-
derstand, of not feeling well buta few
days, and his physician assuring the
family that there was nothing serious
the matter with bim. Mr. Furey was
the last of the older members of that
branch of the Furey family, once quite
prominent in this county. He was a
brother of William Furey at ome time
Commissioner of the county and a cous-
in of Mr. Jno. M. Furey a prominent
citizen of spring township. Nine years
ago with his wife and two daughters he
left Milesburg for San Bernandino,
where he has since resided and had se-
cured for himself a comfortable home,
He was a quiet, unasuming, man, 8 mem-
ber of the Presbyterian church, and
died having the respect of all who knew

rollicking musical comedy ‘‘Oh, what &

tists that were in the company and will
expect something good next week.

The Philipsburg Ledger tells the foliow-
ing story of how a horse recently made
quite a show of itself out there.
“On Monday afternoon a horse be®
longing to John Douglas, of South
Philipsburg, which has been running
at large, attempted the dangerous feat
of walking the railroad track. About
half a mile above the upper bridge of
the Pennsylvania railroad he was start,
led to find, like many a more intelligent
creature, that trains have the right of
way on railroad tracks, and any person
or thing that doesn’t want to get hurt
had better give the iron steed undis-
puted possession. In his fright he took
to his heels and made good time till he
entered the bridge. Possibly he grew
dizzy—people sometimes do—lost his
footing and became inextricably tangled
up with the ties, In the meantime, the
train which had been slowing up, stop-
ped and waited until a gang of men
struggled and pried until they got the
animal loose, when he finished up the
performance by falling off the bridge
into the creek. Everybody supposed he
would be killed, but he gotup and
walked out of the water none the worse
except for some pretty bad bruises. The
day express was delayed nearly an hour
by this equine show.”

Must Have A Voting Boorn.—The
papers last week, getting their informa-
tion from the decree of the court, stated
that the voting place for the citizens of
the west ward of Bellefonte, had been
fixed at the United Brethren church,
leaving the impression that the church
would be used as a polling place. This
is incorrect. No arrangements had
been made for the use of the church for
this purpose, nor could any have been
made had any one attempted it. The
fact is that since the decree of the court
has fixed the voting place at that point
in the ward, and the church cannot be
used as such, it will be necessary for the
commissioners to erect a poling booth,
which will be the first, and probably the
only building of the kind, in the county.
