—- The annual out-door meet of the

This promises to be the most interest-
ing event that has ever transpired in
athletics at our big institution and a
great crowd is looked for. Lehigh,
Lafayette, Dickinson, Pennsylvania,
the proceedings of last week’s court ses-
{sion published in this paper we gave
| . : x
every case tried in detail and closed
| with the Thursday session. At that
' time the case of Sara Furl vs Ed. Rowe,
F. and B. was on trial. On Friday
| morning the jury returned a verdict of
| guilty. Defendant immediately moved
for a new trial, but the court has not
‘yet rendered its decision. Other cases.
Friday were : :
Commonwealth vs Jacob . Hazel, as-
sault and battery. Verdict of guilty, but
recommended to the mercy of the court.
He was sentenced to pay costs and a
fine of $100. ‘
Commonwealth vs Rudolp Watkins
charged with adultery with Mrs.
John Watkins. Guilty, but defendant
left town while the jury was deliberat-
ing and has not been heard of since.
Thesentence of Wm. Hanna to two
years in the Western penitentiary was
reduced to one year in the county jail.
This cleared up the criminal list and
civil cases were taken up in the follow-
ing order:
M. Shires vs W. H. Musser, an action
to recover 83 per cent of premium on
two insurance policies, Verdict for de-
John W. Cook vs I. N. Huff & Co.
an action to recover the price of a car
load of coal. The jury, under direction
of the court, returned a verdict for the
plaintiff, subject to hearing of testimony
of defenaants which, if judged sufficient,
would be deemed cause for the granting
of a new trial. :
The first case called on Monday was
that of Jacob Garbrick vs David Har-
ter, of Marion Twp. It was a suit in
trespass arising from a disputed line
fonce between litigants farm. Verdict
for defendant.
Franklin Reese vs Executors of Val-
entine Reese. Verdict of $88.10 for
plaintiff, but a new trial was granted.
The Thompson Houston Motor Co.
vs the Arp Coal Cutting Machine Co. a
suit on a writ of replevin to recover an
electric motor. Verdict for plaintiff.
The case of the Bald Eagle and Nit.
tany valley pike and rail-road company
vs Centre county is now on trial. It
arose out of a mutual dispute over the
damages assessed by the viewers ap-
pointed by the court to condemn the
pike. The court appointed viewers upon
petition of citizens of Howard and
Marion townships who wanted the pike,
which extends from a stone house just
wast of the village of Jacksonville
through the mountain gap to the iron
bridge that crosses Bald Eagle Creek
east of Howard, condemned and made
a public road. The viewers laid dam-
ages and both plaintiff and defendant
appealed from their report.
No sentences of convicts have been
pronounced as yet.
To the honorable, the Judges ot the Quarter
Sessions of tha Peace of Centre county.
The grand inquest inquiring in and for said
county, respectfully reports :
We had presented to us thirty bills of in”
dictment for our consideration and true bills
were returned on all. It is fhe opinion of this
body that a number of these cases should have
been settled by the justices of the peace, and
should not have been brought before this
Having thoroughly examined the public
buildings and grounds surrounding the same
we recommend : 3
1st. That the outside of the court house
and jail be repainted:
2nd. That the plastering in different parts
of the jail has fallen off and needs repairing
that the joists under the floors of the Sheriff's
office and juil are ina decayed condition and
should be repaired ; that the platform or gal-
lery in front of the cells of the second story is
weak and unsafe and should be better sup-
3rd. That a suitable safe should be pro
cured for the sheriff's office for the proper
keeping of the books and records of the office;
and, having been informed by the sheriff that
the kitchen range is worn out and worthless,
thatupon examination of the same we find
this correct and that we recommend the pur-
chase of a new one. :
4th. That the iron and wooden guards
around the shade trees be removed, and that
the county commissioners require the electric
light and telephone companies to paint their
poles located onand around the public grounds.
5th. That we find the lightning rods on the
court house and jail in an unsafe condition
and should be repaired.
6th. We desire to congratulate the board of
commissioners of Centre county in the taste-
ful improvements of the grounds in front of
the court house.
W. H. Musser, Foreman,
It is amusing to note that the Grand
Jury censures the justices throughout
the county for returning so many petty
cases, when in the same paragraph it
reports having found true bills on every
one of the thirty indictments returned
for its consideration.

OpreENED.—The new hotel at State Col-
lege was a scene of unusual attractive-
ness last Friday evening. It was the
occasion of the formal opening of the
Inn and the large corridors of the pretty
hotel were crowded all afternoon with
guests arriving for the banquet and
dance. Mr. A. L. Westcott, the young
proprietor, was kept busy showing
parties of visitors through the well ap-
pointed house, a complete description of
which we have published in a former
issue, and the stock-holders were all
there helping to do the honors in en-
The great porches of the hotel pre-
sented a pretty spectacle, they were fair-
ly alive with gay promenaders and the
place seemed a whole town in itself so
large and complete is its arrangement.
It had been open for several weeks for
the entertainment of guests, but the
public had not received a general in-
vitation to inspect 1t until Friday.
A banquet was given in the dining
hall, at which many peopie were served
and as the debris of the last course had
been cleared toasts were responded to
by various prominent men present. All
of the remarks were of a congratulatory
nature on the enterprise that gave State
College such a fine hotel and were hap-
pily received by the persons at table.
After the banquet a dance wasenjoyed
by the young folks.
A special train carried Bellefonters
to the opening and all who went were
thoroughly delighted with the hotel and
the courteous treatment of the proprie-
tor, Mr. Westcott.
—OCn Tuesday morning, May 1st, Belle-
fonte’s new post-master, David F. Fort-

he now lives, to make the formal trans-
fer of the accounts. It was made on
Monday evening so when morning came
Mr. Fortney and Thomas Howley, his
first assistant, were on hand to begin
learning the routine of the office.

capacity of assistant during the past ad-
ministration and who has really been
the post-master for the latter half of that
time will remain in the office to give
his successors the necessary instructions.
Mr. Reese retires with the best wishes of
all. He has been a faithful, attentive,
thoroughly efficient official and none
but ill grounded complaint could possi-
bly have been made of his administra-
The assistant is the only change that
will be made at present. There are six
other appointments to fill in} the Belle-
fonte office. We trust that the new
officials will find their work pleasant
and profitable. ‘We are confident they
will give public satisfaction.

business since leaving here and now presents
the appearance of & man of affluence. Belle-
fonte is his boyhood’s home, and. both of his
parents are buried here the attachment to the
town is still very strong. “Chippy” Stone,
that is what the boys used to call him, was one
of the jokers of the town along in the early
seventies and his visit here now recalls a joke
that he played on ola Mr. Samuel Van Tries,
now dead. One day he met the old gentle-
man on the street and sald : “Mr. Van Tries
I have a nice string of fish I'd like tosell you!”
“How much do you want for them ?”” came the
query from Mr. Van Tries, who had been long”
ing for a mess of good Spring Creek suckers.
“Well, I'll give them to you for 50cts. as they
run.” All right said the purchaser and he hand
ed over the money, “You'll have to come down !
to the saloon for them.” Hen. told him ;so |
that evening he sent down for them and the |
boy returned to Mr. Van Tries with the infor- |
mation that he had bought them ‘‘as they |
run” and he'd have to come down to the creek
and catch them, This was only one of “Chip- |
py’s” enjoyments for another one that he was
wont to revel in was to send a bucket full of |
beer over to this office every press night. And |
as the Warca MAN was worked off by hand on |
old lever press, in those days, there was :
nsually a pretty well jollied crowd about this
house when morning came and work was !
done. |

Being a practical miner he took a lamp
and éntered the mines, but he became
so much interested in his work that he
did not notice his lamp burning out,
until he was almost in darkness. Then

gotten to take a supply of oil in along.
In the inky blackness of the abandoned
mine he groped about all night, trying

by his experience.
