He is quoted in the Lock Haven

tors huve no right to furnish free text
books to children attending private or
subscription schools ; that the books as
furnished at the expense of the various
set ool districts are to be given only to
the children attending those schocls.
He further says. “The law does not
contemplate nor warrant the use of free
books by schools not exclusively under
the official jurisdiction of the directors.
A board of directors cannot consistently
nor lawfully discriminate in the use of
books in favor of children whose pa-
rents may raise a fund for subscription

patrons of the school are to be com-
mended for the progressive spirit shown
in the desire expressed to have better
educational advantages for their chil-

schools. The proper course, however,
to pursue in all such cases is to extend
the term of the public school and thus
give all the advantage of longer annual
terms and free books as well as free tui-

Tue DEATH OF A. J. Cruse. —After
an illness which begun on the Saturday
evening previous A.J. Cruse expired
-at his home, No. 152 E. Linn street, on
Tuesday evening. Congestion of the
lungs superinduced by failure of proper
action of the heart was the direct cause
of death.
Deceased had been a constant sufferer
from heart trouble and while sitting at
the supper table, last Saturday evening,
he -was seized with a violent choking
sensation and hurried from the table to
get a breath of fresh air. A physician
was hastily summoned and it appeared
a3 though he would die then, but a
hemorrhage of the lungs made respira-
tion possible again and he rallied suffi-
ciently to give hopes of his ultimate re-
He was convalescent until Tuesday
evening and wes feeling so much better
during the afternoon that he expressed
his intention of coming down to his
place of business next day, but al 6:30
o’cleck another hemorrage came on and
his weakened constitution was unable to
survive it.
Andrew J, Cruse was born in 1842
in the city of Baltimore, Md., and came
to this place from Bedford, in 1873.
Having been a cigar maker by trade he
worked at a table in the various facto-
ries that flourished here atghat time and
he continued in the employ ot A. Stern—
berg, T. H. Akers and Wm. Agnew,
respectively, until the cigar store in the
Bush House, then operated by Orrie
Kinslow, was offered for sale. He pur-
chased it and began a small manu-
facturing business as well as that of re-
tailing tobacco of all kinds. He was a
skilled cigar maker which fact coupled
with his exceptional judgment as to the
blending of brands for the manufacture
of cigars acquired for the product of his
factory a reputation which found its re-
ward in an excellent business. His
favorite brands were always ready
sellers and the name of the dead tobac-
conist will always be connected with
the “Henry Clay” and “Our Dan” ci-
gars. His business ventures were suc—
cessful and he owned considerable prop-
erty here at the time’ of his death.
Mr. Cruse was a man who gave his
undivided attention to his business, he
figured little outside of his family and
his work, but with his naturally retiring
disposition he won many friends and be
can easily be said to have been one of
the most popular men in town.
A widow and five children survive him.
The children are Charles, Andrew,
Temple, Mary and Wade, dll of whom
will miss a loving and indulgent father.
Funeral services will be held at his late
home this afternoon at 2 o’clock.

Coars.—One day last week Burdine
Butler, of Howard, who had butjrecente
ly been married to Miss Annie McCaleb,
of Nittany, got into quite a scrape.
While on his wedding tour he and his
wife stopped at the home of James Craig,
in Birmingham, and while there he and
his host had their coats off for some pur-
pose. The coats were both lying on a
table when the train, on which the bridal
couple intended departing, suddenly
whistled. Mr. Butler grabbed what he
thought to be his coat and ran. They
caught the train and came on to their
home in Howard. The next day the
benedict was feeling in his pocket for
some papers when his hand fell on a
strange wallet. Upon opening it it was
found to contain $2700. Mr. Butler at
once became excited, but discovered that
he had some one else’s coat on. He did
not have a long time to wonder whose
clothes, so rich with money, he was wear-
ing for just then the down train pulled
into Howard and Mr. Craig stepped off
wearing the groom’s coat. An exchange
was made and now both are happy
again. :
exchange.tells of the following slick
swindle that is catching farmers in oth-
er parts of the State.
“Here is the latest swindle. It has
been practiced in a neighboring county.
A man, representing himself as advance
agent for a show, drivesup to a farm
house and agrees to pay the farmer two
dollars for the privilege of pasting bills
on his barn. The bargain is made, the
two dollars paid over and the sharper
asks the farmer to sign a receipt for the
money. He does so and in a few days
finds be has signed a note for $200,
which a third party asks him to pay.
He says he won't, but he does all the
same. He can’t get out of it. The note
is in the hands of an “innocent’’ pur-
chaser and the maker of the note can
put in no defense.”
