CouxciL Meets AGAIN.—The first
_ May meeting of council for 1894 was
‘held in the chamber on Monday eve-
ning with every member present except
| Gegeral Beaver, who was out of town:
' The busin ess was transacted as follows :
Under reports the Street committee *
"reported a new crossing laid at Penn
| and High streets, and was authorized
to advertise for proposals for grading
Curtin street at its intersection with
Allegheny. The committee was directed |
to give a grade for the new Armory to |
be built at Lamb and Spring streets, but |
upon a request from the Bellefonte Gas
Co., the matter was reconsidered and
held under advisement until May 21st.
The Finance committee reported a bal-
ance due the borough treasurer of $5,-
856.01 and was ordered to consider the
necessity of exomerating W. Keeler
from the payment of his taxes. He hav-
ing appeared and stated that he was un-
able to pay them. The Water commit-
tee reported many repairs, and accepted
the responsibility of laying a water
main out to the extreme east end of
High street. The people of that end
have been praying for water for some
time and now that council has granted
their petition they are accordingly
happy. .
Under the head of miscellaneous busi-
ness the matter of back water rent claim-
ed against McCalmont & Co. was taken
up and the time of service reduced from
five to three years. The solicitor was
accordingly instructed to present a bill
for $30.
The Fire and Police committee found
fault with the police officers in allowing
so many drunken men to go ou the
streets. We are glad to see ibat council
bas wakened up and we trust that the
police will get a shaking up too. There
is a law which enables an officer to
arrest any man who is drunk in a pub-
lic place, no matter whether he is order-
ly or not. Itshould be enforced and
every person seen on the streets under
the influence of liquor should be locked
up. There would be fewer insults for
women in the town if this law was en-
forced. Then too, we would like to
know why the ordinance making it un-
lawful for boys to be on the streets at
night is not enforced. There was a great
fuss made when it was passed, but like
everything else it has been left to become
a dead letter. We appeal to the Burgess
to order the police to attend to their
duties, they have been instructed once
what to do and that should be erough.
1ENCES.—The post-office department has
promulgated an order substantially as
follows, which will enable the public to
send largesums of money by mail at a
much lower rece than formerly «7
“On July 1st there will be for sale at
the post-office .&—rew money order by
which large and small sums can be trans-
mitted by latter with safety, and at rates
much less than the present. Orders for
$2.50 or less can be had for three cents,
and orders for larger amounts up to $100
at rates graded up to thirty cents. The
schedule of fees for the new money or-
ders has been reduced to the basis now
charged by the various express com-
panies for transmitting money, and will
be as follows: For $2.50 or less, three
cents ; $2.50 to $5, five cents ; $5 to $10.
eight cents ; $10 to $20, ten cents ; $20
to $30, twelve cents ; $30 to $40 to $50,
eighteen cents ; $50 to $60,t wenty cents ;
$60 to $75, twenty-five cents; $75 to
$100; thirty cents,
The postal note gives no security to
the sender. Anybody can get them
cashed simply by signing his name and
presenting it for payment at any post-
office authorized to pay postal notes.
The new money order, on the other
hand, by a system of coupons serving as
effective checks both upon purchaser and
post-master, is apt to prove a satisfac-
tory solution ot the long mooted problem
of reissuing fractional currency for con-
venience in mail purchases.
Under the new system post-masters
will receive a commission of three cents
for each money order issued. At pres-
ent they get three and one-half cents
for each order issued and the same
amount for each order paid, and one per
cent. for each postal note issued, and
three-fourths of a cent for each note
This reduction of the fees on large
sums of money transmitted by money
order is a good thing. The present
rates are too exorbitant, for the people
can get their money transmitted by ex-
press companies at much lower rates
than the government charges.’
WiLL RETIRE.-—-This is the last week

created much surprise and sorrow
throughout the town. In her usual
health until less than a week before, a |
chill Wednesday evening did not alarm
her as she thought she needed only rest
and quiet, Thursday and Friday she was
better but by Saturday it was deemed
best to have her physician. Acute
pneumonia had developed by Monday
morning and she grew worse so rapidly
that even the doctors at the consuita-
tion, Monday evening, admitted there
was no hope of her recovery. Conscious
til the last, her death was as quiet and
peaceful as the closing of a summer's
Marie P. Fifield was born November
10ih 1829 in Fryeburg, Maine where
her girlhood days were spent. In 1847
she married Edward Lindley Gray a
sea captain of Cambridge Mass. and
went with him to the Island of Tahitj
in the Pacific Ocean where her husband
was the American Cousul for more than
six years. On returning to America
they took up their residence at Cam-
bridge Mass., where Mr. Gray died in
'60. Ten years later she was married to
Mr. Edward Tuten and came with him
to Bellefonte when he and his brother
Robert bought the Republican in Jan-
uary 1873.
Mrs. Tuten was a gentle, kind woman
who had always charity for and sympa-
thy with the unfortunate or needy.
Traveled educated, and an incessant
reader she was away above the average
person mentally and intellectually and
while she was naturally quiet and un-
assuming in her manner no one ever
met her without recognizing at once her
charm of mind and person and her love-
able, bright disposition.
Of her six children only two Mrs.
Frances Gray Gates and Earle Chester
Tuten are living and to them who
with the bereaved husband wiil miss
her most we offer our deepest sympathy.

pastor, Dr. Laurie, will conduct at her

this afternoon, she will ® be laid |

KickeDp BY A Horse AND [DiED.—
William Feidler, an old and respected
citizen of Gregg tosvnship, died last
Saturday from the effects of a kick
which he had received from a horse the
preceding Wednesday.
The accident occurred while Mr,
Feidler wss ploughing in a field ad-
joining his home. One of his horses
began kicking und the old gentleman
was struck just above his left temple.
He fell unconscious to the ground, where
he lay until a grandson, who had seen
the mishap from the ‘porch of the house,
called his grandmother. She being a
feeble old lady could do little else than
sound an alarm. A neighbor living a
half-mile distant heard her cries and
hurried to the scene. The injured man
was carried to the house, where he re-
mained unconscious until death.
Deceased was 71 years of age, a con-
sistent member of the Evangelical
church of a quarter of a century's
standing, and leaves a witow with six
children to mourn his death. Funeral
services were held in the Green Grove
church Tuesday morning.
CoNTEST.—On last Friday night Gar-
mans opera house was crowded with
people, all eager to hear the contest for
the Reynolds prize of $15 in gold which
is open annuaily to the Junior class of
the Bellefonte High school.
When Meyer's orchestra had finished
ed its overture the curtain was raised
and the contestants, seven young ladies
and three young men, were seated on
the stage with various officers of the
School Board and some of the instruc-
tors. Rev. Zehner pronounced an in-
vocation and the contest began. All
the young declaimers acquitted them-
selves so creditably that it would bea
difficult matter for us to single out in-
dividual subjects for praise. It was
generally conceded to have been the best
contest ever given by theschool and the
audience was delighted with the excel-
lence of the program. After all the ef-
forts had been heard the judges retired
and found that Miss Lena Baum had
excelled in the points of merit required.
The prize was awarded her.

Tae Pests CoMING AGAIN.--A
bulletin sent out by the Department of
Agriculture states that according to
Professor Riley’s chronology in his re-
port on the insects of Missouri, “two
broods of the periodical cicada are due
in 1894, and the insects will make their
appearance during the last week of
May.” Brood XII, composed of the
seventeen-year form of locusts, last ap-
peared in 1877, and then visited the vi-
cinity of New York, Brooklyn and Jer-
sey City, the Hudson valley south of
Troy, portions of Connecticut, New Jer-
sey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and the
District of Columbia. In all these states
and perhaps also in North Carolina,
Indiana and Michigan, the pest may be
expected in June of the present year.
The larvae, which live under ground,
begin to rise and show themselves about
‘May 20, the adults remaining five or
six weeks. But the damage done by
these insects to fruit and shade trees is
usually unimportant. It is serious only
when they multiply rapidly and ovi-
posit in young nursery stock. In 1887
they arrived in New Jersey on June 1
and destroyed much shrubbery, but
their ravages were more alarming than

A ball game between two good clubs,
