—-More than two years ago Mr. Keller’s
friends noticed his failing health ; but
it was not until after his daughter Mar-
tha’s sudden death, from diphtherix,
that they or he realized that bis disease
might develop into consumption.
Preparation was made at once to spend
the winter in the South, and early in
November, Mr. and Mrs. Keller started
for Aiken, S. C., where they staid until
late in the spring. Mr. Keller came
home greatly encouraged and seemingly
somewhat better; but last fall when he
started S uth again it was evident to
everyone that his was a losing battle.
This spring he came home so much
worse that his death Sunday night was
not a surprize—only & sorrow to this
Daniel Schenck Xeller was born
{near Boalsburz in 1844. His fath-
er, Henry Keller, long since de-
ceased, was in his lifetime a prominent
and influential citizen of Harris town-
ship, where his oldast son worked on the
farm, attended the district school and
the Boalsburg Academy until 1862,
when he enlisted as a private in Capt.
McFarlaue’s company, which after-
wards became Co. G. 148th regiment,
Pennsylvania volunteers. Unfitted for
fleld duty by a severe wound received
at the battle of Chancellorsville, he was
detailed ns a clerk in the war depart-
ment at Washington, where he studied
law at the Columbia law school and was
admitted to the bar. He came to Belle-
fonte 1n 1873 and since that time has
ranked among our foremost lawyers.
He married in 1866 Miss Heustis, of
Washington, who died in 1876, and in
1878 Miss Martha Schroeder, of Read-
ing, who with five children, Harry,
Will H, Daniel, Lucy and John, sur-
vive him.
Mr. Keller was pre-eminentiy an hon-
est lawyer. No act of his ever marred
the escutcheen of his chosen profes-
sion, and in his intercourse and dealings
with his professional brethren he de-
spised even the appearance of unfair-
ness. In politics he was an ardent Re-
publican, but a Republican from hon-
est convictions and not for expediency’s
sake, for he was an active worker in the
temperance cause, and fearlessly spoke
his mind on the subject. He was one of
the leaders in the constitutional amend-
ment campaign in 1889, when Centre
county declared so emphatically in fa-
vor of temperance. He was connected
with the National Guard for some years,
and was on Gen. Beaver’s staff when
the Guard was called out during the
railroad riots in 1877. He was a mem-
ber of the Gregg Post, the Masonic
lodge, and an elder in the Reformed
church ; but it was not ore or all these
that gave him success. It was his un-
swerving faithfulness to his convictions,
his perfect integrity of character, and
his courtesy and genuine kindness. An
able and scholarly man, he was always
an affable, entertaining companion.
The educational and reform movements
of the county have lost an aggressive
worker, and the community a parfect
gentleman and an honest man.
Thursday morning five ministers
officiated at the funeral services in the
Reformed church in which he was an
elder and a steward. Hon. A. O. Furst,
A. J. Cook, Jared Harper, C. M. Bow-
er, C. P. Hewes, George M. Boal, Jas.
P. Coburn, Col. Geo. A. Bayard, John
B. Linn and F. W. Crider were the
pall bearers, and the Gregg Post, Con-
stans Commandery, and the members of
the Centre county Bar, attended in a
Prayep witH MarcHES —Lulu, the
little 3-year old daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Samuel Steel, and grand daughter
of Mr. Perry Steel of this place, was so
horribly burned on Monday afternoon
at her parents, home at Fairview, near
Altoona, that she died that evening.
The way of it was—her mother bad
taken her upstairs about 2 o’clock for
her customary afternoon nap, and after
making the child comfortable, went
down stairs to her work. Suddenly a
most terrible shriek was heard,and rush-
ing upstairs as fast as she could, she
found ber child enveloped in flames,
She caught her up in her arms and tried
to smother out the fire, but she found
that was impossible, so taking a bucket
of water, that fortunately was near, she
dashed it over the child and succeeded
in getting the fire out Medical aid was
at once summoned, and upon examina-
tion it was found that the child was
dangerously burned from head to foot.
Great blisters were all over the face,
body and limbs, and whenever an effort
was made to remove particles of cloth-
ing remaining.the something more than
half cooked flesh would come with it.
| Every possible means was employed to
| suve the little one, who evidently had
" gotten out of bed and tound the matches,
Company B oft to the Gettysburg en-
campment. Some of the leave takings
were almost as tender as if the boys
were about to depart for the scanes of
actual warfare. The company had the
appearance of veterans as they marched
down High street, and there is no doubt
they compared well with the best com-
panies in attendance at the encamp-
for they were out of their accustomed
place, and in playing with them had set
fire to her clothes, but after hours of
suffering she died that night. Wednes-
day morning she was brought to this
place on the 9:32 train and taken to
Pleasant Gap for burial.

ErR.—The Huntingdon News of last Fri-
day says: This community was shock-
ed this morning by the announcement
that Harry Kerstetter, the well-known
boss blacksmith at the Reformatory, had
committed suicide at his residence on
Washington street, near 14th. Inves-
tigation proved the truth of the report.
We paid a visit to the scene of the
tragedy, which occurred in a stable at the
rear of the premises, and the scene was
a sickening one. Mr. Kerstetter was up
at an early hour, and was acting so
strangely that his wife became alarmed
and shortly after 5 o'clock went over to
Smithfield to notify some of his fellow
officers at the institution, and seek their
aid. In the meantime Mr. Kerstetter
procured a double-barreled shot gun into
which he placed two shells and about
half-past-six o’clock repaired to the sta-
ble, placed the barrel to the side of his
head and pulled the trigger. The shell
was heavily loaded, and the discharge
literally blew the top of his head off,
scattering brains, pieces of skull, flesh,
etc., all over the side of the building.
In the absence of Coroner Harmon,
Justice of the Peace L. E. Edwards was
notified of the occurrence, and after
viewing the body and learning the par-
ticulars, decided that an inquest was un-
necessary, and directed that the body be
As the cause for the deed, we could
learn of none, his wife not having yet
returned home, and the neighbors hav-
ing no knowledge of any trouble of any
Mr. Kerstetter was a large man, was
aged about 45 years, and came to this
place from Philipsburg, Centre county,
some five years ago, to accept the ‘posi-
tion he has since held at the State Re-
formatory. He was twice married and
is survived by his wife and one son, the
latter residing in Centre County.
ED BY FIre.—Last Friday morning
between two and three o’clock fire was
discovered in the north-east corner of
the basement of Montgomery & Co’s
clothing store, in Crider’s Exchange
building, Allegheny street. An alarm
was sounded, and the fire companies
were promptly on the scene, attended
by a large concourse of people that are
usually attracted by a fire, however un-
seasonable the hour may be. The fire,
which originated in the basement, burn-
ed through the floor into the window
above, where almost everything was
consumed, and before it was extinguish-
ed it had burned a hole in the ceiling.
The window having been broken by the
heat the, awning on the outside was al-
so burned. By the prompt action of
the firemen the flames were stopped at
this point, but if the fire had not been
discovered assoon as it was, and had
been allowed to have gained more head-
way, both the store and building would
probably have been consumed.
As to the origin of the fire opinion is
divided as to whether it was the work
of an incendiary or was caused by the
electric light wires. The loss directly
from the fire was not great, butjmuch
damage was done to the stock by water
and smoke. The firm had their stock
fully insured.
— Last Monday morning, H. Roth, of
Philadelphia, whose business is travel-
ing for a firm in that city engaged in
enlarging photographs, was down in
Boggs township delivering pictures, hav-
ing engaged one of Baum’s teams for
that purpose. He was in the residence
of Col. Weaver, near Milesburg, when
the storm came on, having left the team
near by in charge of Mr. Baum’s son,
Isedore. Lightning struck a large tree
about sixty feet from the house, knock-
ing large piecas from it, one of which
flew through a window of the house,
striking Mr. Roth on the back and in-
flicting a painful bruise, and pieces of
glass from the window cut holes in his
clothing. Mr. Baum’s son was alone in
the vehicle when the lightning struck,
and being unable to bold the frightened
horses, jumped out. The team ran
through a barb wire fence and into the
creek where they became tangled in the
harness and were with difficulty gotten
out. The harness and vehicle were
used up and the horses terribly cut by
the barb wire fence. Part of one of the
horses lip was cut off.
Rux INTo BY THE CARrs.—Mr. Ed-
ward Long, of Gum Stump, had been
attending market in this place on Sat-
urday morning, and when near the old
| Snow Shoe station at Central; City, his
horse and wagon were run into by part
of the Snow Shoe train which had been
uncoupled and allowed to run down it-
| self. Horse, wagon and driver were
thrown over an enbankment into the
| pond. Some damage was done the
wagon, but neither the horse nor Mr.
Long were much injured.

—— Wm. Neil,an employe of Howard
& Perley’s saw mill, near North Bend,
was struck in the abdomen on Thursday
by a board, which flew up from the
saw, receiving such injuries as to result
in his death on Friday. He was about
24 years old, and was the only support
of his widowed mother, who resides at
Buffalo Run, this county.— Philipsburg
——While Col. W. F. Reynolds’ bay
team, hitched to his carriage, was being
driven through Milesburg by his
driver, last Monday evening, a break in
the coupling caused the horses to run
away. They ran into the side of the
iron bridge crossing Bald Eagle creek,
and one of the animals was thrown over
a twenty foot bunk into the stream.
This horse, notwithstanding so serious a
fall, was hurt but very little, while the
one which ran on tho bridge was con-
siderably injured. The driver escaped
unharmed, but the carriage was pretty
badly wrecked.

—Mayor C. G. McMillen of Dayton, O., who

Walters, a member of Company K, of
the 148th Regiment, Pa. Vols. has, at
the request of a number of his Comrades
of Companies E, I and K, arranged for
a re-union of the 148th Regiment dur-
ing the coming National Encampment
of the G. A. R. at Pittsburg. The re-
union will be held at 9:30 a. m., on
Wednesday, September 12th, in the
Post room: of Post No. 117G. A. R.
Malta hall, Sheridan avenue, East end,
Pittsburg. This hall is in the vicinity
of the 19th Ward school house where
the Posts from Beliefonte, Lemont,
Fleming, Pine Grove Mills, Centre
Hall and Millheim will be quartered.
It will be easy for the members of the
148th who belong to these Posts to at-
tend this re-union, and it is hoped that
all who can do so will be present. We
have no doubt that the fact that this re-
union is to be held will stimulate the at-
tendance of former members of the Cen-
tre County Regiment at the National
Encampment. The western men of the
Regiment are extremely anxious to meet
their comrades from Centre county.
Points To REMEMBER.—The follow-
ing points should be remembered by the
citizens of every town, and we especial-
ly commend them to the people of
Bellefonte :
Always encourage home talent when
it stands ready to establish an enterprise
that will build up the town. Never at-
tempt to raise more money to secure
more enterprises than the town can af-
ford to part with. Always look on the
bright side of the town’s outlook. Nev-
er predict anything but prosperity.
Well men often die because they believe
they are suffering from some wholly
imaginary ailment and a good town
sometimes retrogrades simply because of
the croaking of calamity -howlers. Say
nothing if you cannot say a good word
for the town, but keep on sawing the
town’s wood.
Williamsport Sun says that the lumber-
men during the recent freshet had
swept from them not less than 180,000,-
000 feet of saw logs and about 20,000,-
000 feet of manufactured lumber, which
line the Susquehanna river from Wil-
liamsport to the Chespeake bay, The
valuation of this lumber is fully $3,500,-
000 to the lumber sufferers, and they
think it hard that their loss should be
increased by parties living along the
stream, who, without any claim what-
ever to the lumber and timber,have tak-
en possession of it. The West Branch
| Lumberman’s Exchange, of Williams-
port, will therefore enter suit in the
courts of Dauphin and Cumberland
counties for the recovery of this property.
A NEw Coan OpErRATOR.—We are
glad to know taat Mr. Harry T. Cooke,
of Woodland, intends coming to Phil-
ipsburg to live, having leased the Mea-
dow Brook mines recently opened on
the Goss farm, near Blue Ball, by his
father, Mr. John Cooke. The coal is of
fine quality, and long before the coal
industry became so prominent in the
Clearfield region the Goss coal was
famous for its superiority as a domestic
coal. Mr. Cooke isa very agreeable
young gentleman, who will be an ad-
dition our town socially and as an
enterprising business man. We give him
a cordial welcome.— Philipsburg Ledger.
