Transmigration is what we know as
the passing of the soul from one body
to another and while such a possibility
is not accepted by educated people, yet
every day we are confronted with some
incident that incites wonder as to what
causes and through what agency the
mind of one person may work on that
of another, however distant they may
be from each other.
When we read stories of how one
mind has received impressions from an-
otherat a great distance and without
any known medium of communication
we generally look upon them as the
work of the writer's imagination and
still the same thing is happening in
our midst nearly every day. Two cases
of this sort, that occurred last week, are
There was a young girl from the west-
ern part of the State visiting at the
home of one of Bellefonte’s prominent
bankers. As summer visitors usually
do here she had been having a delight-
ful time up until Friday when her
hostess planned a little excursion to
State College. The day was bright and
cheerful, the big institution never ap-
peared to better advantage, its vast ex-
tent of well kept campus affording a
pleasing sight to the party of young
people yet withal, the young woman, for
whose special enjoyment it had been
arranged, seemed sad and unconscious
of the beauty of her surroundings.
Again and again did her companions try
to arouse her, but her mind seemed en-
tirely absorbed with some far off sub-
jeet. To their inquiries as to whether
she was ill—she replied that she was
not, and then explained that her lack
of enthusiasm was due fo her depressed
feelings. Something seemed to tell her
that she was needed at home, where she
had left her aged grandmother—her only
living relative. She had been absent
from home often before, but the same
strange sensation had never affected her.
As the day wore on the feeling that
something was wrong oppressed her so
much that several times tears were no-
ticed trickling down her cheeks.
Shortly after the departure of the
party for the College a telegram was de-
livered at the home, where the young
lady was visiting, and was opened. Its
message was brief but important for it
read : “Come home immediately,”” The
hostess, knowing that her guest could
not possibly get home sooner than the
following morning, did not care to mar
the supposed pleasure of the day’s
outing for her and simply retained the
message until the evening when they
returned. But when the evening train
from the College brought them back
here the visitor had become so deeply
impressed with the idea that she wag
needed at bome thatshe had made up
her mind to return at once. She in-
formed her friends of her determination
and consequently they did not give her
the telegram which would only have
added to the sorrow she suffered that
night. The next morning she departed,
rot knowing anything whatever of the
message that had come calling her to
the bedside of her dying grandmother.
What agent, by what process was
that young woman made to feel that
she was needed at homo ?
* * * *
A short time ago a pretty young girl,
who lived at her home near Lemont, was
stricken with a fatal malady. She real-
ized that she could not live long and it
was her desire that she could see all of
her brothers and sisters before death
should take her from them forever. It
was easy to gratify her wish so far as
all of the loved ones were concerned,
except a brother who had been in
Pueblo, Col., for a number of years. He
was sent for but could not be found, and
the poor girl prayed that life might be
given her to live until she could see
him for a last time. Messages were sent,
everywhere in the hope of intercepting |
him, but they brought no response.
Her disease was rapidly consuming
her life and the other children of the
family had been called home to be with
their sister when the last sad hour
should come. A carriage had been sent
to this place one morning to take one
of the sisters, who lives here, home and
was just about ready to return when
who should appear, but the long prayed
for brother. He had just arrived on a
train from the west, having been un-
able to work at his business of rail-road-
ing,on account of the strike, he thought
he had better come home and see his
What innate influence turred that
young man’s foot steps homeward in
time to answer the prayer of his dying
sister ? Can you tell, dear reader ? With
such things happening at your very
door it is little to be wondered at that
you should believe that the mind of one
can exert aninfluence over that of an-
other e’en though a continent may sep-
arate them.

but the kind that was being furnished
could not be used, except after consider-
able working, and in order to keep down
the cost the builders were compelled to
resort to brick.

—— An effort has been made to have
the Lock Haven base ball team locate
here for the rest of the season. The
Clinton county capitol seems to be too
small to maintain a good ball club and
the players who have made an excellent
record down there sre desirous of locat-
ing here. They have vuffered to come
for a low rate and the Bellefonte Cen-
tral R. R. Co., would reduce the fare
from Bellefonte to the park so that
thirty five cents would pay a round trip
fare including admission to the games,
but no one here cares to take hold of
the business this late in the season and
we will hardly witness any base ball
this year.
——At the meeting of Co. B., 5th
Reg. N. G. P., on Monday night, an
attempt was made to elect a second
lieutenunt. The names of 5. W. Gettig,
James R. Alexander, Harry Keller and
George L. Jackson were placed in
nomination. After the first ballot Get-
tig dropped out, then Alexander follow-
ed and only two candidates remained.
The balloting continued, resulting in a
vote of 26 to 19 in favor of Jackson.
It required a majority vote of the com-
pany, 31, to elect, however, and as the
friends of neither candidate would yield
the election was declared off until this
evening when another trial will be
made. Jackson will be elected this
evening, as Keller has withdrawn and
under the rules no new nomination can
! be made.
1aE GAS WORKS.—A clap of thunder
from a clear sky could not have been
more of a surprise to the residents of
this place, on Saturday morning, than
the announcement that the venerable
Bobert McKnight was to be relieved
from duty as tuperintendent of the
Bellefonte gas and steam heat company.
Afier a service of thirty-eight years,
which has been characterized by a re-
markable faithfulness, he will sever his
‘connection with the company to make
way for the introduction of a new pro.
cess of gas manufacture, which is the
invention of Mr. Arthur Kitson, of
Philadelphia, a brother of Ernest Kit~-
son, the present superintendent of the
Edison electric illuminating company of
this place. The latter gentleman will
succeed to the management of the gas
company’s plant on the 15th inst., when
the introduction of his brother’s process
will be begun.
Under the new plan it is expected
that gas will be better and cheaper and
that enough of it will be made to sup
ply it for fuel purposes as well as for
illumination. There is at present no
idea of consolidation between the stock:
holders of the electric and gas com-
panies, this having been the first con-
clusion that the people jumped at when
the news that Mr. McKnight was to
retire was announced. Though the
matter was talked of some time ago,
such a deal will hardly be consummated
at this time.
Robert McKnight and his son, Robert
Jr., who has been associated with his
father ever since he was old enough to
work, will quit the employ of the gas
company with the satisfaction of know-
ing that they have zealously upheld ite
interests, no matter what the conse-
quences. The elder gentleman having
been trained in the old school, that
taught the apprentice to care for his
employer's property as if it were his
own, has been honest to a fault and his
simple, straight forward manner of do-
ing business has made him the hosts of
friends who will regret to learn that
there is a possibility of his leaving Belle-
On Wednesdy afternoon a strange cou-
ple driving a rather dilapidated looking
horse appeared on Bishop street, this
place, and when in the vicinity of
Schrock’s blacksmith shop the man was
seen to stop and undertake to help the
woman out of the vehicle. She seemed
to be in great agony and could not
move and before she could be gotten
out of the buggy to some comfortable
retreat she gave premature birth to a
child. The couple appeared to be
strangers in this community and, as
they were without friends, poor over-
seer McClure was notified and had
them removed to the poor house. Doc-
tor Hoy then attended the woman and
she is now about ready to continue her
journey. The child was dead and was
buried by undertaker Naginey.
George Hagar and wife are the nameg
they gave, the man claiming to be a
miner from Brownsville, Fayette coun-
ty. Being unable to get work and with
starvation staring them in the face the
couple had started to drive to Mrs.
Hagar’s parents in Elmira, N. Y.
Without money their only way to go
was to drive and not thinking of the
delicate condition of Mrs. Hagar they
started over land.
‘When Potter’s Mills was reached the
woman began to suffer much pain and it
was often necessary to stop the horse so
she could lie down by the road side a
while. They had been living off the
charity of the farmers along their route
and slept out of doors, in barns or in a
bed just as the kindness of their bene-
factors was extended.
By the time they reached Centre Hall
the condition of the woman had become
so serious that Dr. Jacobs was called to
her relief. He is reported to have
stated that her condition was
critical and advised that they hurry
on to this place. Just why a physician
should have advised such a course when
he knew thedanger of it is hard to im-
agine, but they proceeded and reached
here about three o’clock. The distressing
occurrence followed immediately upon
stopping on Bishop street.
A Disastrous StorM.—The thunder
storm that passed over this section on
Sunday afternoon did little damage in
the immediate vicinity of Bellefonte,
but near Lock Haven it left much de-
struction in its path.
At Flemington two barns were struck
by lightning and both burned to the
ground. In the one owned by Rauben
Shaffer were two horses, sixteen tons of
hay, sixteen tons of straw, a quantity of
chopand wheat, several vehicles and an
ice house, all of which were burned. Mr.
Shaffer ran to the barn to get the horses
out, but unfortunately the electric bolt
had killed one of them and shocked the
other one so bad that it could not move.
One of the horses belonged to Mr, John-
son, of Jacksonville, who with his
family, was spending the day with the

N. W. Fredericks, and leased by O. S.

—On Tuesday, July 31st, this well

years of age and a man who at one time
was quite prominent in Democratic polit-
ical circles in this county. He was
Associate Judge for one term from
1866 to 1871 and enjoyed the distine-
tion of being a very able man in his
time. He was the first associate to sit
on a habeas corpus proceedings in the
Centre county court.

Dear or Mrs. WiLsoN.—Mrs.
Agnus Wilson,widow of the late Joseph
Wilson, died of consumption at her
home on Thomas street, Tuesday morn-
ing after an illness of more than two
years. Mrs. Wilson, who was beloved
and respected by every one who knew
her, was born 75 years, 2 months and
some days ago in Northumberland Co.»
where her girlhood and early married
days were spent. On coming with her
husband to this county years ago they
bought the farm up Buffalo Run where
until Mr. Wilson’s death four years ago
they made their home. A home that was
always noted for its hospitality and
cheerfulness. With an exceptionally
sweet and gentle disposition she was a
constant inspiration to others, and while
her death coming as it did so quiet
and peaceful at the close of a useful
life could not be called sad for she was
ready and anxious to go, it leaves very
lonely her only daughter, Miss Ella,
who has nursed and cared for her de-
votedly through all these weeks of
suffering. Mr. Calvin Wilson, a promi-

Tue Logan PioNic NEXT WEEK. —
On Thursday, the 9th inst, the Logan
steam fire engine company of this place
will picnic at Heela park, on the line of
the new Central rail-road of Penna.
The posters have been up for some time
announcing the many attractive feat-
ures that the firemen have arranged for
the entertainment of those who attend.
The program will be exactly as adver-
tised, nothing will be curtailed that will
lend to the pleasure of the day.
The rail-road has made exceptionally
low rates, so that all persons living
along the line can attend. It is
the especial desire of the Logans that
those who want to make a family pic-
nic of it should do so, for while they
will have refreshments of all kinds for
sale, yet those persons who want to go
and take baskets will be perfectly wel-
come. The idea is to have a big crowd,
The more the merrier and the enter-
tainment will be provided cheorfally,
whether you spend a cent or not.
Dancing, of course, will be one of the
principal modes of amusement and to
make it enjoyable a large covered pa-
vilion has been built. There an orches -
tre of ten pieces will play all day long
for those who care to dance.
The day will be an enjoyable one and
you should not miss it.
