A Lost CuiLp Dies From Expos-
URE.—The people of Nittany valley
have hardly yet recovered from the
shock they received during the latter
days of last week while hunting for a
child, scarcely past three years old, that
had wandered from home and was
found about noon Sunday, more dead
than alive. ’
The story of the lost child, as told us
by Mr. H. T. McDowell, who was one
of the searching party, is substantially
as follows :
About nine o'clock last Friday
morning, little Patsy Delaney, who
lived with his father Daniel Delaney at:
Washington mine bank, about four
miles east of Jacksonville, started off
with his cousin Mike, a four year old
son of John Delaney, of the same place,
presumably to follow some of their older
brothers who had gone over to Peck’s
store at Nittany. The absence of the
children was not noticed until about
noon Will Leathers turned up, bringing
The Leathers boy had been plowing on
his father’s farm at least a mile and a
half west of Washington bank, when
little Delaney came up to him in the
field. Thinking at once the child was
either lost or had run off, Leathers tried
to find out what had taken him so far
from home. The little fellow responded
that his brothers were near by, but this
story was not believed and the runaway
was gathered into the arms of the strong
young farmer and carried back. He
kicked and fought the whole way, and
when Leathers had reached Delaney’s
home his face had been badly scratched
by the rebelious youngster.
Upon Mike’s return under such pecu-
liar circumstances inquiry was naturally
aroused as to the whereabouts of Patsy.
All that could be gleaned from the boy
was that they had started off together,
but had parted at what is known as the
furnace road. Search was made imme-
diately for the child, but no trace of
him could be found. As evening came
on aud the rain continued to pour down
in torrents the people of that vicinity
became more and more alarmed on ac-
count of the life of the little runaway.
There being so much wooded land in
that locality it was feared he would get
into the woods and perish.
All through the weary hours of that
long, rainy night willing and brave
hearted men beat through field and
brush in search of Patsy. Saturday
morning came, and with it no signs of
the storm’s abating. Then courage al-
most left the searchers, for they could
hardly hope to find the boy alive, if ever
their labors would prove successful.
The whole valley awakened to a realiza-
tion that a human being was possibly
dying within sight of some one, yet they
were not able to rescue. Parties from
Howard, Huablersburg, Nittany, Snyder-
town, Jacksonville, and even from down
in Clinton county, joined the band of
hunters. Relays were arranged for, and
big hearted John Holmes, was the mar-
shall. Under his direction the entire
valley was scoured.
The ridge that separates Jacksonville
from Hublersburg was covered by a line
of men, only a rod apart, who walked
from one end of it to the other, but no
traces of the child were found.
Every hour some wild, unreliable ru-
mor reached the party to the effect that
Patsy had been seen at one place or an-
other, but the men persevered in their
systematic work and went on heedless of
nothing but their marshall’s eom mands.
Some of them became so exhausted at
times that they had to be hauled home,
but there were always others to take
The ground west of the Delaney
horae having been thoroughly scoured
it was decided to send the searchers
farther down the valley. Accordingly
they started eastward in their hunt and
all Saturday night the weird shadows,
that flashed or hill and vale, told of the
eager men who, nothing daunted by the
pouring rain, went on in their hope
that a life might be saved. Dawa broke
on Sunday,jthe Sabbath of rest, but the
men toiled on. There could be no rest
for them until their search was done.
Through wet grain. fields they tramped,
all Sunday® morning until about noon,
when three boy’s, who had left the main
party and struck off across the fields to-
ward their homes, saw the child lying in
the furrow at the edge of a wheat field
a few rods from the road. As if sleep-
ing, the little fellow was curled up with
his straw hat tucked under his head for
a pillow. There was life in the body
when it was found and two brothers,
who were with the searchersa mile in
the rear, got there in time to see him
alive, but within a few minutes life had
gone and the little one had entered a
life of eternal rest where such exposure
and sufierings as he must have experi-
enced are not known.
It is singular that a child, who would
not have been four years old until July,
could travel so far and thai too without
being found. He was gone fifty-two
hours without & bite to eat, with only a
thin cotton shirt, pants and & straw hat
to keep him warm, and exposed to the
worst rain storm we have known for
years. Think of the agonies, that child
must have saffered from fear, hunger
will not picture his misery during those
two long days and nights, and oh, what
a sweet, sweet rest that sleep of death
must have been to the weary little soul.
Funeral services were held in the Cath-
olic church at Howard on Tuesday
It is said that two men who were
building fence in a fleld near where he
was found report having seen the child
wandering about there on Friday after-
noon, but what reason they gave for
not looking after it, when there was not
8 house nearer than a half mile distant,
we have not heard.
He was found on Andrew Krape's
farm near St. Paul’s church, Porter
township, Clinton county, at least five
miles from home.
HAIL STONES AS LARGE As CHICK-
EN EaGes.—About two weeks ago we
read, in the accounts of a great western
storm, that hail stones eight inches in
length had fallen. Of course we con-
cluded it was imagination, but to re-
move our doubt astorm traveled this
way last Friday and pelted down hail so
fast one could not see a distance of more
than a few feet.
It was severest up along the Buffalo
Run valley and at Fillmore hail-stones
that measured ten inches around were
lying everywhere on the ground. Ma-
ny of the people took advantage of the
ice and made ice-cream. At Kephart’s
the hailstones were so large that they
did not melt until Saturday. The af-
ternoon train on the Bellefonte Central
ran into thestorm at Fillmore and some
of the larger hail-stones were brought
on to Bellefonte. The people who saw
their enormous size, even after the six
mile journey in a warm car, were loath
to believe the passengers and train crew,
but when Cale Kephart came to town
and said it was all right the doubt was
removed at once for he never (?) told
even a ‘‘fib.”
The remarkable feature to us is that
the storm did not do more damage than
it did. Vegetation was not perceptibly
hurt and very slight destruction to prop-
erty, by broken windows eic., has been
BELLEFONTE’S DECORATION DAY.—

CounciL BusiNEss.—At the regular
semi monthly meeting of council on
Monday the members were not in shape
to do much as they were all so much
agitated over the flood. Notwithstand-
ing the excitement they managed to
consider some business and among it
they appointed J. Kyle McFarlane wa-
ter assessor for the coming year. Pri-
vilege was granted Allegheny street
property owners, from Howard to Cur-
tin streets, to sod the street to a distance
of 20 ft. from the inside of the pave.
ment line. A claim was heard from
Beaver & Dale, lawyers, for damages
sustained by A. G. Curtin for the loss of
a horse that had died from the effects of
stepping in a hole on Pine Street. The
burgess was authorized to buy new uni
forms for the police and reported having
collected $20 license from Kerstetter &
Gettig who want to peddle meat in the
borough. The awarding of the contract
to H. A. McKee & Bro. for furnishing
the pipe and fixtures for the new water
main out east High street was reported
at $191,78. The Lamb street bridge
over Spring creek was reported unsafe |
and final action on the grade of the
street at the intersection of Lamb and
Spring streets was postponed. The pro-
jectors of the new armory building that
is to occupy a site there want the grade |

jets because it will damage their plant

Tue GREAT Froop IN CENTRE
CoUNTY.--Centre county met with its
share of disaster on account of the grea!
flood on Sunday and Monday. The nat_
ural water courses being unable to hold
them the currents, swollen by three days
of steady rain, spread out into veritable
rivers and inundated the fertile valleys
and wrecked towns lying in their course.
The streams were ugly looking all day
Saturday, but not until Sunday morn-
ing did they get high enough to cause
alarm. Spring creek and Logan’s
Branch spread to twice their usual size,
and in both streams the water rose
higher than it was in ’89. At Rock
Mills part of the dam was carried away
and all along the creek to this place
small buildings and fences in the course
of the flood were swept away.
Bellefonte suffered more than she has
ever done before. The red bridge at
Lamb street was so strained as to be
unsafe, the foot bridge at the foot of
Curtin street was carried away, the
lumber yards of P. B. Crider & Son
were robbed of many piles of cut lumber
and 1t was their sweeping against the
rail-road trestle at Morris’ lime kilns
that carried that structure away. The
large iron bridge atthe Nail Works
was carried intact from its abutments
and landed high and dry at the head of
McCoy and Linn’s dam. Boardwalks,
the Standard Oil Co’s. tanks, fences,
cellars and streets here all suffered and
it was only after the hardest kind of
work tbat Ray’s restaurant, on Water
street, was kept from floating off. It
had to be anchored to a telephone pole.
The Republican press room got its
share of the filth and the press rooms of
this office were under water from 6
o’clock, Sunday morning until Tuesday,
when the water subsided enough to
admit of our starting to clean out the
four inches of filth that had been de-
posited over bright machinery and pre-
viously clean floors. It was a great
task, but here we are bright and fresh
ALONG THE BALD EAGLE.
From one end of the valley to the
other reports of ruin come in. Indeed
the whole valley was submerged and
the damage to farm lands is inestimable.
Trains could not run for two days be-
cause of washouts and in the vicinity
of Lock Haven and Mill Hall the water
was higher than the tops of the cars.
From Milesburg to Curtin the dam-
age has been very great to the farms in
that section, chiefly in the washing out
of the growing crops especially in places
where powerful currents were formed in
conformity to the lay of land ; but many
fields of wheat are now standing up as
though they had not been submerged
for three days. The oats and corn-
flelds now bear the most disheartening
aspects, and much fencing has disappear-
ed along portions of the stream.
In one particular instance the R. R.
company has saved itself from the dic-
astrous effects of the spreading waters
by raising the track runcing through the
farm on which Jobn S. Zimmerman
now resides, property of Mrs. Judge
Hoy. This had been done three years
ago when the new bridge was put in.
The road bed was required to be raised
about four feet and the improvement no
doubt has saved the track this time
and probably will again.
The lower corner of an abutment to
a small bridge crossing a gut of the
Bald Eagle on the farm above mention-
ed was the only damage done the B. E.
V.rail-road in this section. The heavy
masonry was dislodged by the force of
compressed waters passing between the
two walls forming the abutments of the
short iron bridge and expending them-
selves with a powerful force over the
bottom lands below.
The effect along the stream from
Milesburg down to Curtin though very
considerable is nut so disastrous in ap-
pearance as one might suppcse from the
height of the waters and their con-
tinuance at the highest level for two
days. Height at Curtin about 7 inches
below the highest mark of the flood of
DOWN THROUGH NITTANY VALLEY.
TLe trains on the Central R. R. of
Pa. will only commence running to-day,
for it bas taken all this time to repair
the wasbouts on the road. Most of the
damage was done along Fishing creek,
between Salona and Clintondale, though
not a foot of masonry or a bridge was
destroyed. The lake, thatsuddenly ap-
pears on the Gentzell farm a short dis-
tance east of town, whenever there is a
very wet season, came up on Sunday
and covered over 100 acres of land. The
valley was completely drenched, though
no fatalities are recorded.
PENNS VALLEY SOAKED.
Down through Penns valley the flocd
was awful, reaching at many places a
greater depth than ever before. The
Sinking creek bridge on the railroad
nehr Spring Mills was carried away and
traffic via Lewisburg was suspended for
days. At Millheim and Coburn many
people bad to flee for their lives the wa-
ter raised so rapidly and became so vio-
lent. Dams were broken and many
bridges rode away on the fl ood.
A. W. Dale, of Oak Hall, had a herd
of 12 fine cattle in a meadow on bis
and cold. Doubtless our wildest fancies ' miners at Snow Shoe on Wednesday. ' place gave way and the large flood of
water covered the meadow at a great
depth drowning all ihe cattle there.
They were extra fine cattle and the loss
ALONG THE BUFFALO RUN.
The Bellefonte Central did not run a
train out of here untii Wednesday. The
usually peaceful little Buffalo Run
creek had become riled in great shape
and in its efforts to act likea river
dumped fences, trees, rocks and hun-
dreds of tons of earth on the tracks. The
station at Morris’ being carried clear
over the road bed.
The most serious part of the flood is
the great damage the pouring rain did
to farm lands, in carrying off the fertiie |
soil and leaving nothing but rocks and ,
clay. Many bridges are total lossas to
the townships or county and miles upon
miles of fencing will be to rebuild.
In the filthy slime, that is deposited
over every place covered by the devas-
tating waters, will lurk disease germs
and we would advise prompt cleaning |
up and the use of plenty of lime or other
In Centre county the flood was un-
doubtedly the greatest ever known, for
it continued for the unprecedented time
of forty eight hours.
THE SPORTS AT STATE COLLEGE.—
The ninth annual contest of the Penn-
sylvania Inter-collegiate Athletic As-
sociation was held on Beaver field, at
The Pennsylvania State College, last
Saturday afternoon, notwithstanding _a
steady downpour of rain from the time
the referee called the first event up until
the last man had landed in the mud
puddle, to which the jumping bed had
become converted long before the final
trial for points on the program.
Contrary to expectation there was a
fair sized crowd on Beaver field to wit-
ness the sports, being at least five hun-
dred in number. The pretty grand
stand was crowded and it was indeed a
barometer marking the rise or fall of
certain favorites. The Western Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania at Pittsburg,
Lehigh University, Lafayette, Swarth-
more and State all had entries, the two
latter schools largely out numbering the
others in representatives.
Before the events came off it was
thought the fight for supremacy be-
tween the home athletes and the Quak-
ers would be interesting, but the maroon
of Swarthmore soon displayed its
superiority and outside of a few closely
contested events the whole affair was
decidedly one sided.
It had been feared that the wet
weather would spoil the track, but not-
withstanding the rain good records were
made in all the track events. The
field events were poor owing to the
mud. The prettiest race of the day was
the half-mile run in which Swarthmore
was beaten within two feet of the tape
by Russell of Lehigh. The Swarth-
more man had been leading strong when
Russell overhauled him and won by a
The poor showing made by State was
frequently commented on by the visi-
tors, as the home coliage had been ex-
pected to make a strong bid for first
place. The selection of State College as
the place for holding the sports was
generally conceded to have been a good
one and had it not been for the rain the
affair would have been largely attended.

MEYERS TRIED 70 BREAK JAIL.—
Tom Meyers, the Philipsburg thief, who
is in jail awaiting trial for breaking into

and who, if convicted, will undoubtedly
receive the suspended sentence on the
various other charges of burglary to
which he plead guilty at the last term
of court, tried to break jail early Wed-
He was a wary fellow during his last
incarceration and sheriff Condo was
continually on the watch lest his bird
"would «lip away from him, but he
handed him over to the April court and
was doubtless as much surprised as
many others when sentence was suspend-
ed after he had confessed being implica-
ted in a namber of daring robberies.

, parole of good bebavior this man was
i again bebind the bars, charged with
breaking into and robbing a beer ware-
Since be has been in jail this second
time the sheriff has kept a close watch
over him, but on Tuesday afternoon he
was called down near Jacksonville to
tuke charge of a demented man who
| had been annoying the people of that
| locality. It was about ome o’clock
Wednesday morning when he returned
with the man and taking him straight
into the prison corridor he noticed, on
opening the first door, a figure glide
stealthily into the bath ‘room, which is
located on the first tier of cells. He
called to deputy, Weaver to get a revol-
ver, and the depuly promptly respond-
ing demanded ’'the prisoner to come out.
On hearing the revolver click Meyers
walked out and threw up his hands. He
was quickly hand-cuffed and hustled
back to his cell, where the cause of his
access to the“corridors was discovered.
Its customary for the sheriff, or one
of his deputies, fo visit each cell before
retiring ‘and see that the inmates are
properly docked: up. Mr. Weaver did
this, but was fooled when he reached
Meyers cell for while the bed appeared to
have an occupant it was only a dummy.

interrupted and ‘caught. Had the
