The first circus of the season to come to
Bellefonte was Reeder’s Republican ag-
gregation that came into town from all
quarters of the county on Tuesday.
The court house served as a tent and
exactly at 11 o'clock ring master Reeder
cracked his whip and his program was
run through with an alacrity that al-
most made Col. Jim Coburn sick, for he
feared that they had forgotten to make
room for his speech. Of course as soon
as the Col. began to talk the idea of
monkeys, clowns, circuses and all dis”
appeared from our mind and we real-
ized thatit was really a Republican
convention in session, for the hon-
orable James only makes one speech a
year and as it is always prepared for a
county convention he knew whereat
he spoke.
After the routine of organization
which was affected by the election of S.
C. Burnside, of Howard, as chairman ;
O. F. Deininger, of Centre Hall, and J.
E. Richards, of Rush township, as secre-
taries, and H. C. Quigley, of Bellefonte,
as reading clerk ; the chairman ap-
pointed J. L. Holmes, of College; R. T.
Comley, of Union; S. S. Miles, of
Worth ; M. F. Loy, of Burnside and
Dr. J. L. Hatch, of Philipsburg, a com-
mittee on resolutions.
The regular business was then taken
up and nominations for the office of
jury commissioner were declared in or-
der. The names of Jacob Yarnell,
Charles Smith, J. D. Decker, W. S.
Williams and H. A. Osman were pre-
sented. Itrequired three ballots to do
the work of making ex-commissioner
John Decker the nominee.

Benjamin Rich Esq., of Unionville,
was then unanimously chosen the party
candidate for associate judge. Af this
juncture W. E. Gray presented the
name of John G. Love Esq. as the
county Republicans candidate for presi-
dent judge. A letter from Judge Furst
having been read, expressing his desire
to withdraw his name, W. E. Gray, J.
W. Dunwiddie, and S. C. Burnside
were elected judicial conferees to push
for the nomination of Mr. Love in the
conference with Huntingdon county.
Messrs A. T. James, Frank Clemson
and W. I. Fleming were oclected sena-
torial conferees and as this county has
no aspirant they make a tail with-
ont a kite. As congressional
conferees W. L. Malin and John
M. Dale were chosen, with instructions
to do everything in their power to se-
eure the nomination of Col. Ed. Irvin,
of Clearfield. This done the real work
of the convention was ended and then
the speech making began. Col. Coburn,
P. E. Womelsdorf, Editor Harter, of
the Gazette and Harry Curtin all spoke,
but none of them cut the swath the Col.
laid down. He had been preparing
that speech a year and what he didn’t
say every one knows, but for the life of
us we can’t find one man who knows
what he did say.
The resolutions adopted by the con-
vention were rather peculiar and sound-
ed very much as if “Our Dan’ had had
a hand in their preparation. He was
held responsible for his party’s resolu-
tions adopted at the State convention,
which left everything at home and ran
away off to the islands of Hawaiia and
Samoa to find something to censure the
Democrats for and they brought so
much laughter on his party for not be-
ing able to find more relevant matter
against the Democrats that we suppose
Dan. was sure of staying at home when
the writing of the county resolutions
came up. But alas, he stuck so close to
home that he forgot everything else but
himself and, after making his party
here resolve to stick to him through
thick and thin, the convention adjourn-
ed without having said one word in
condemnation of Pattison, Cleveland, or
the Wilson bill. The poor Republicans,
they don’t know what they want.
Another inunderstandable proceed-
ing was the prolonged applause that
greeted the reading of Judge Furst’s let-
ter of with-drawal. Now Love has’nt
been able to get it through his head yet
just what that meant. He would like
to believe that it was glee at Fursts de-
feat, but then the thought that possi-
bly it might have been cheers at the
very nume of Furst kind-a makes the
cold chills run up and down his spinal

A Taory Iv His Lee For SIXTY
YEars.—A little more than sixty years
ago, says the Tyrone Herald, Samuel
J. Marks, one ot Tyrone’s oldest resi-
dents at present, _was a lad of twelve
years of age living in the vicinity of
Valentine's iron works near Bellefonte.
One day while gathering plums he had
the misfortune to run against a sharp
thorn which entered his right leg about
half way between the ankle and knee.
The thorn, about a half inch in length,
was imbedded so deeply in the limb that
the boy could not remove it, but after
the figst soreness was over, it did not
trouble him and the accident was al-
most forgotten. Now comes thestrange
concluding chapter of the story. A few
weeks ago Mr. Marks noticed a sore
forming upon his right leg. The fester-
ing continued until last night when it
had become ripe and he then felt cer-
tain that the thorn which he had carried
over three score years was making its
way out of his anatomy. His conjecture
was correct for with little trouble he re-
moved the little stick which he now
very properly prizes as a momento.
That thorn stuck to him through a long

The old stone barn on the Ard farm
near town is undergoing repairs—the old
structure had better be mended witha
new one.
Last Saturday evening a corporals
guard of the G. O. P. assembled at the
Decker Hotel, after some deliberation the
chairman announced that the grand old’
party had deviated widely from their
Furst Love, leaving a number of wounds
that will require an application of the
usual political salve.
The venerable Joseph Gates is quite
feeble from the effects of pulmonary
trouble. Last Saturday while walking
about the yard he fell to the grouud and
was unable to rise, in this condition one
of his neighbors who chanced tosee him
carried him into the house just in time to
save him from the drenching rain.
The old Samuel Hess mansion now oc.

Pine Hall cemetery on the 21st at 10
o'clock a. m., Rev. Forrest of the M. E.

Saturday of last week a fearful rain
storm accompanied by wind and hail vis.
ited this section. The atmosphere was
' full of electricity and the roads and fields
were badly washed. J. M. Kepler's barn
was struck with lightning but little dam-
age was done, and one of J. G. Bailey's

storm, evidently baving been struck by

| Tuesday of this week Prof. Gramley
| met a class of eighteen in the school room
in this place. More than the usual num-
ber of citizens were present and
manifested an interest in education. The
Superintendent evidently raised the
standard of the examination over that of
last year as five of the applicants failed
to get his signature to their diplomas. A
number of breezy and spirited speeches
was made and the Supt. gave the board
some excellent advice. Our present
school board that is now officered with
Joseph Strouse, president ; Jacob Keller,
sec.; and Frank Bowersox, treas.—has
agreed to levy 214 mills school tax.
As previously announced Children’s
Day services were held last Sunday eve-
ning in the Presbyterian church. The
house was packed with people to hear the
exercises that consisted of music, ad-
dresses and responsive reading. The
members of the infant class although
young in years are deserving of special
praise for the way they built their share
in the program. Col. Fortney of Belle-
fonte was introduced as one who had got-
ten his taste for Sunday school work in
Pine Grove and as one who had been par-
ticularly heipful to the cause. The Col.
took up the theme where the little ones
left off and instead of building a tempo-
rary structure as they did he urged the
importance of laying solidly the founda-
| tion of the character each was forming
and that no influence was more beneficial
than the Sabbath school in building the
temple that each person builds, for he
that builds on the sand cannot resist
the temptations and strifes of life, while
the person whose character has been
formed by honest and kind influences has
not even the inclinations or temptations
of the other. Afterall the mother it is,
who molds and polishes the minds of her
children, for she it is who teaches the lit-
tle one itslisping prayer and she,it is who
interests the little one in day and Sabbath
school, without which people amount to
very little in this world. The Col. briefly
recalled the Sunday school as it was in
his boyhood controlled by the patriarchs
who now sleep in the church yard but
w hose influence for good is still felt.
