A Writer WHOM You ALL Know
WELL.—Among the biographies of a
number of the veteran editors of the
State, as they appeared in the Sunday
issue of the Philadelphia Times, we
noticed that of a man who once delight-
ed the readers of the WaTcEMAN with
his versatility. In years gone by the
name of Joe W. Furey was almost a
house-hold word in Centre county and
now that he is ill and will probably
never write for another newspaper we
know that you will all be interested in
learning something of his past. The
Times says :
“About everybody worth knowing in
central Pennsylvania has a speaking ac-
quaintance, if nothing more, with Edi-
tor Joe W. Furey, who has been identi-
fied with journalism in that section of
the State throughout a number of years,
and who has given to the Lock Haven
Democrat an excellent position in inter-
ior journalism.
Mr. Furey bas always been a bright,
versatile and vigorous writer, dealing
with subjects as he found them, and
holding fast to an opinion with a tenac-
ity and aggressive power that has made
himone of the best-known writers of
the day. His first connection with
printing began May 12, 1855, at Jercey
Shore, Lycoming county, in the office of
the Republican . Notwithstanding the
fact that the Republican bore the same
name as the new party then just merg-
ing into notice under the leadership of
Fremont, it was nevertheless a Demo-
cratic paper owned by R. & F. A. Ba-
ker, and the former was at that time
treasurer of Lycoming county. Both
have long since passed away, the former
at the age of 90 years. The latter was a
gallant soldier in the Union army
during the rebellion, and afterward be-
came an inmate of the soldiers’ home at
From Jersey Shore Iiditor Furey mi-
grated to Decatur, Morgan county, Ala.,
where he became editor of the North
Alabama Times, owned by Alexander
McCarthy, his uncle. He remained
there a period of eighteen months, re-
turning north in the fall of 1860. At
that time political matters had grown
decidedly hot. It was at this time that
he entered the office of the DEMOCRATIC
WarcaMAN, at Bellefonte, and in 1864
and 1865 he worked at the case in the
office of the Washington Globe.
Mr. Furey left Washington two or
three days before the assassination of
President Lincoln and on his arrival at
Harrisburg found that P. Gray Meek,
editor of the WATCHMAN, at Bellefonte,
had been arrested and imprisoned for
what was then defined as treason—as if
the pleasant and fearless gentleman,
now surveyor of the port of Philadelphia
and still proprietor of the Warcamax,
could be guilty of such unpatriotic ac-
tion. At Harrisburg Editor Furey
found Judge Strohecker, a good old
German citizen of Penn's valley, Centre
county, and together they were given
permission to visit the imprisoned editor
which imprisonment Meek afterwards
dignified by a five-column article in the
‘WATCHMAN, entitled ‘Five Days in the
Mr. Furey, on his return to Belle-
fonte, took charge of the WarcmMAN
and was connected with Mr. Meek in
the editorial work of the WATCHMAN
for nearly twenty years. He was also
connected with the Lycoming Standard,
at Williamsport, in 1873, and in the
year 1867 and 1868 he was one of the
editors of the Clinton Democrat, in
Lock Haven succeeding Henry L.
Dieffenbach, now of Philadelphia, a
widely known and talented writer.
Mr. Furey’s love for Bellefonte again
attached him there, until in 1887, when
he returned to Lock Haven and as-
sumed editorial charge of the Democrat.
Three years ago he was attacked by
erysipalas end became so nervous that
through the kindness of many friends
he was sent to the hospital at
Clifton Springs, New York, and has
since been out of the harness. Mr. Fa-
rey is a writer of much merit and has
contributed a number of excellent
poems to the literature of the day-”
Two SraBLES BURNED.—At five
o'clock last Saturday morning fire was
discovered in the hay loft of Judge A.
O. Furst’s barn on the rear of his Linn
street property. The building being
frame was wrapped in flames before a
general alarm was sounded and by the
time the fire department got on the
ground it was beyond saving, There
was no water in the pipes on Curtin
street and the Undines only succeeded
in reaching the flames with their stream
after their engine had been put to work.
The Logans were unable to get a stream
on because of a broken plug on Linn
street. The fire spread from the Furst
stable to that owned by Wm. Maitland,
just across the alley and it was almost
totally destroyed.
Everything was gotten out of Furst’s
stable except a little calf. Mr. Mait-
land lost about two loads of hay in his.
Both were partially insured.
The condition in which the firemen
found the water service on Saturday
morning was certainly very discredita-
ble to some one, let the blame attach
where it will. There is no use in talk-
ing about such economy. Suppose it
had been windy when that fire broke
out there is no telling what the result
would have ‘been.

of the past winter Bernard Lauth, Esq.,
of Howard, died on Monday evening
shortly before nine o'clock. He was in
his seventy-third year and his peaceful
death marked the end of a life that bad
known hardships as well as the luxury
in which it closed. The ingenious
brain that worked out the many devices
in iron manufacture and the man who
possessed it were honors to Centre
county that will long hold a place in
her gelaxy of noted men.
tance. Fite
Bernard Lauth, late proprietor of
Howard Iron Works, was born in the
province of Alsace (since the Franco-
German war included in the German
Empire) on the 23d of August, 1820.
He is lineally descended from Dr. Wil-
liam Laud, Archbishop of Canterbury
(1633) who was beheaded (Jan. IO,
645) by an arbitrary decree of Parlia-
ment during the troubled times of the
latter years of the region of Charles I.
Archbishop Laud’s widow, with eleven
sons, migrated to Alsace, and the name
of the family, through the idiom of the
German language, was changed to that of
The grandfather and grandmother of
Bernard Lauth, with his father and
mother, emigrated Lo America, arriving
in Pittsburgh in the spring of 1831.
Bernard, not having completed his
eleventh year, went to work in Dr.
Peter Shoenberger’s iron-works at one
dollar a week. He remained at Shoen-
berger’s works for seven years, and was
then employed as bessroller at Hoke &
Hartman's, on the east side of the
Mr. Lauth was married in 1840 to
Miss Elizabeth Wilhelm, and remained
in charge at Hoke & Hartman’s until
1844. In 1847, Mr. Lauth went into
business for himself at Zanesville, Chio,
and in company with others built a
rolling-mill. He was there a little over
five years, when he removed to
East Birmingham, Pittsburg, and built
a rolling-mill in connection with his
brother on the site ot an orchard. This
enterprise developed into the immense
‘‘American Iron-Works” of Jones &
Laughlin, which employs thirty-five
hundred men, the firm being Jones &
Lauth until Mr. Lauth retired. While
thus engaged (in 1857) he made his in-
vention for the manufacture of cold-
rolled shafting. The one-half of the
shafting used in the great Centennial
buildings at Philadelphia, in 1876 was
rolled at these works.
Mr Lauth sold his right to Jones &
Laughlin for one hundred thousand
dollars, and then went to Fugland.
While there he made his second impor-
tant invention. Lauth’s three high
plate rolls. He had his family with
him in Europe for four years, in order
to give his children a good education.
Mr. Lauth’s third invention was a con-
tinuous mill for rolling band iron of
every description, for hoops, bands, ete.
His fourth invention, made in 1866,
was for straightening and angling beam-
iron mostly cold. On his return from
Europe, Mr. Lauth engaged in business
ing, Pay whtro he buiie oa ahedl-
will for rolling sheets and plates, which
was finished just as the war closed.
From Reading he removed to Howard
in September, 1871 The works at
Howard were very much dilapidated
when he took hold of them, and he re-
modeled and renewed them almost en-
tirely, built new and handsome dwell-
ing-houses, erected a beautiful Catholic
chapel, and with a new rolling-mill
erected in 1882, had one of the best iron-
works in Centre county until he retired
from active work.
He leaves a wife and seven ch:ldren:
B. C. Lauth, of Philadelphia ; Joo. N.,
of St. Louis, Mo.; Mrs. S. Comerford,
of Howard ; Mrs. W. G. Comerford, of
Loretto; Mrs. D. P. Greth, of Reading;
Mrs. William Wilhelm, of Buffalo, N.
Y., and Mrs. S. C. Burnside, of How-
ard Twp. Sixteen grand children and
five great grand children survive.

Diep NEAR PITTsBURG.—A former
resident of this county died suddenly
on Sunday morning at Wilmerding,
near Pittsburg. He had b2en suffering
for some time with a complication of
diseases, but it was not until peritonitis
set in that death made a speedy end of
his trouble. Robert T. Elder, deceased
was born in Half Moon valley, near
Stormstown, June 6, 1854, and early in
life moved to Altoona, where he work-
in the rail-road shops. Thence he
moved to Pittsburg and from there he
went to Mexico where he became master
mechanic of the Mexican National rail-
road. The later years of his life were
spent at Wilmerding in the employ of
the Westinghouse air brake company.
WEAVER.—Sunday, June 24th, the M.
E. Sabbath school had a red letter day
in its history as a school, under the
leadership of its efficient Supt. William
Carson. At 2:30 p. m. the services be-
gan with a crowded house. The deco-
rations were beautiful, recitations good,
singing melodious and Messrs Harry
and Epley Gentzel and Harry Kline,
members of the Zion brass band added
very much to the success of the occa-
sion by lending a helping band in im-
proving the music. Although it seem-
ed to be almost boiling hot in the
church, still every body appeared happy
and looked and listened as if they en-
joyed the exercises. %

in the Evangelical church at Howard,
on last Sabbath evening were a grand
success, extensive preparations in train-
ing and drilling the scholars of the

made. ‘The Open Door” program pre-
pared by the church for the services was
used and proved to be a very impres-
sive and beautiful service. ‘The Open
Door,” handsomely trimmed, was placed
in the centre of the platform, in the
back ground was a large pyramid ot
flowers with a silver cross and crown
above it,and the motto in letters of
spruce, “The Open Door.” The young
ladies and gentlemen and all the chil-
dren who participated in these exercises,
cannot be commended too highly for
the way in which they acquitted them-
selves. In connection with “The Open
Door” program, which was entirely
scriptural, therefore so deeply impress-
ive, a number of miscellaneous exercises
were rendered. The “Children’s Meet-
ing,” an exercise in which all the chil-
dren of the primary class took part, was
very pleasing to all, and the duets sang
by the little girls were also greatly en-
joyed. The choir, under the leadership
of Prof. Z. L. Weirick, was indeed very

end of the platform was a very unique

ED Us. —Conductor L. A. Haupt was
given no little trouble on the valley
train coming from Bellefonte last
Thursday evening. Two girls whose
conduct indicated unsavoriness of repu-
tation and two young bloods belonging
to Co. B. held high carnival in one of
the coaches. They behaved so badly
that the conductor was obliged to sep-
arate them by driving the embryo
soldiers back into the car to which they
belonged, that respectable people might
not be grossly offended.
