He CARRIED THE BULLET THIRTY
YEars.—The following story of a sin-
gular deliverance which Jacob Dunkle,
of Aaronsburg, this county, recently ex- |
perienced is going the rounds of the !
press. It is really a remarkable case
and will create no little surprise in the
medical worid. i
«Mr. Dunkle was a soldier in the late
war and it was during one of the bat-
tles, that he lost an eye. The surgeons
at the time merely washed his eye, say-
ing the eye had been bursted by a ball
passing close to it, without striking:
him, and no effort was made to probe
for a bullet. ?
Mr. Dunkle has felt a pain down the
left side of his face ever sinca, and his
eye always ran with water and matter.
There was no supposition that a spent
ball had entered his eye and lodged
back of it, for that was the opinion of
the army surgeons.
Remarkable to tell, last week one
day, while Mr. Dunkle was at Millheim
he took a coughing spell, which was a
common thing with him, but upon this
occasion it was more violent than usual
and during the spasm a few friends
stood near him, and observed something
drop from his mouth on the pavement.
It was picked up and found to be a
minnie ball which had been imbedded
in the back part of the mouth, having
found its way down from the eye,
which it had entered thirty years before.
The bullet is now in the possession of
Dr. Frank, of Millheim.
This is a remarkable circumstance,
-and it is to be hoped the soldier will
now find relief. Itis a rare relic, and
the case deserves a place in medical
Whether the army surgeons did their
duty at the time Mr. Dunkle was shot
in the eye in passing his injuries over
without investigation, is not for us to

ScuAD-LEITZ£L.—On Monday eve-
ning at 8 o'clock a pleasant wedding
ceremony was performed at the home of
Rev. Hoshour, pastor of the Lutheran
church; on east High street. It was the
marriage of Mr. Albert Schad, junior
member of the firm of R. J. Schad &
Bro. plumbers and steam fitters of this
place, to Miss Esther Leitzel, of Cole-
After the nuptials a wedding supper
was served at the home of the bride, a
reception following, at which their
many friends had an opportunity of
congratulation. The happy pair went
immediately to their future home, the
groom having had the house already
furnished for the reception of his bride.
Mr, Schad is an industrious and intel.
ligent young man whose energy has
already done much toward giving his
firm the profitable tradeit enjoys. He
is in every way fitted for a husband who
should make any home a happy one,
while his bride is a clever young woman
who will make him a loving and help-
PHILIPSBURG'S ELECTRIC RAILWAY
Proposed BuiLpings. —Through the
courtesy of Mr. C. W. Hess, resident
engineer of the Clearfield Traction com-
pany, we were shown the plans for the
power house and car barns, which are at
the company’s office in Duncan & Barnes’
building. The car barn will be 50x125
feet equare and 85 feet high. Adjoining
it is the station building, 30x50 feet, two
stories high. It will contain on the ground
floor, men’s waiting room, women’s wait-
ing room, trainmen’s room and office. On
the second floor will be a dining room,
kitchen, two sleeping rooms, meeting
room, parlor and bath room. The engine
house is 40x100 feet square, 85 feet high.
It will contain the engines, dynamos,
ete. The boiler house is 50100. All the
buildings are to be of brick and iron-
The station will bea very ornamental
building, handsomely finished inside and
out and elegantly furnished. The letting
is already advertised and there are
numerous bidders. The award will be
made the first week in December. The
work is to begin immediately after the
contract is signed, and the contractor
has to give bonds to have the buildings
completed in sixty working days, which
looks like business.— Ledger.
Tag Mir HALL Brick WORKS TO
BE REBUILT.—The action of the direc-
tors of the Mill Hall brick works in de-
ciding to rebuild the plant destroyed by
fire a week or more ago wiil be a source
of much pleasure to the residents of the
town in which it is located and to whose
business it contributed so much energy
while in operation. The new buildings
will probably be made of brick, two
stories high and practically fire proof,
Bids will be advertised for at an early
date and the work of reconstruction will
be begun at once.
ATTENTION, COMRADES! —At the
meeting to be held Saturday, Nov. 17,
1894, at 7:30 p. m., officers for the en.
suing year are to be nominated and the

pure Philipsburg Democrat would like
to know where he “can go for a few
weeks until it blows over.” The WATcH-
MAN is happy that it can recommend two
good Democratic retreats right here in
Centre county. Fly to Penn township
or the west precinct ot Gregg.
——The Philipsburg papers speak in
the highest praise of Rev. H. A. Grant,
who has lately been called to the pas-
torate of St. Paul’s A. M. E. church in
this place. He is an able preacher, a
forcible writer and a man worthy the
confidence of our people. He succeeds
Rev. Honesty, who left for his new
charge last week.
——Dr. Dorman, who lectured before
the Young Men’s Christian Association
of this place on Sunday, Monday, Tues-
day and Wednesday on subjects relating
to man’s weakness bad the pleasure of
talking to crowded houses at every lec-
ture. His subjects were all well handled
and evinced a knowledge of the frailties
of the sterner sex that had a most as-
tounding effect on his hearers.
——M. S. Patterson has been elected
general manager of the Lock Haven
electric railway company. He will begin
selecting employees for the road at once.
Already several hundred applications
for positions are on file. A number of
them being from men out side of Lock
Haven, but only residents of the town
will be employed. The road will be
opened for public service as soon as it
can be done.
——The foot-ball game that was play-
ed here last Saturday afternoon between
the Preps. of The Pennsylvania State
Coliege and the Bellefonte Academy
elevens resulted in a victory for the
former by the score of 10 to 0. The
game was immensely entertaining from
start to finish as the visitors had not an-
ticipated much trouble in defeating the
academians. They had all they could
bandle and it was only their superior
training and heavier weight that won
the day for them.
——@George S. Good, of Lock Haven,
and Hon James Kerr, of Clearfield, now
n the rail-road conirscting business, have
secured a contract to build 122 miles of
road in the Indian Territory. The road
must be completed within six months
from the date of the contract and will
necessitate the employment of three or
four thousand men. The cost at which it
is to be done will range from $1,500,000
to $2,000,000. The road will supply coal
from the South McAlister fields ard is
being pushed by Philadelphia capital
——The need of an extended library
to which the scholars in our public
schools might have access becomes mora
and more urgent to those who have been
giving the matter any attention. For
the most part the students who attend
our public schools do not have even the
ordinary reference books at home which
are go essential to a thorough study of
the advanced work they are required to
take before the completion of their course,
A school library is designed to fill this
want. In fact noschool above a primary
grade should be without access to a well
selected library and we trust our people
will appreciate this need of the Belle-
fonte High school and lend their assis-
tance to supplying it by attending the
Aerial concert company’s entertainment
in the opera house this evening.
——David B. Hall, a youag son of the
late Aaron Hall, who lived on the Hall
farm on the foot hills of the Allegheny
mountain, about three miles north of
Unionville, died suddenly at his home
last Thursday morning. He had gone to
bed wich his brother on Tuesday eve-
ning, apparently in the best of health,
but about three o'clock in the morning
his condition alarmed his brother who
tried to wake him. Alas, the spirit had
flown and the young man was dead. He
was buried Saturday by the side of his
father in the Upper cemetery. Boing a
Hall he was a young man who com-
manded the respect of all who knew
him. A probationary member of the

ton cancelling the game State was
scheduled to piay there tomorrow. The
reason being given that the champions
are badly crippled from lust Satur-
day’scontest and in no condition to meet
such a strong team as State would
line up against them.
Though our team did not accomplish
their intention of defeating the United
States Naval cadets at Annapolis, Md.»
last Saturday it was not because the
thing was an impossibility but rather
because of the ‘horse play’ the boys in-
dulged in the first half when they had
the chance to win. The final score was a
tie. : ;
State will play Bucknell University
at Williamsport tomorrow afternoon, the
contest being on neutral grounds and be-
tween old time rivals will doubtless be
an exciting one. The winner will take
75 per cent of the receipts, the loser the
balance. Bucknell has been playing
very strong foot-ball this season and
those who think she will not give State
a stiff game will be disappointed to-
morrow when they come together. Ex-
cursion tickets will be sold over the
Central R. R. of Penna. good for any
train going and coming at $1.52 the

can leave here at 7 o'clock in the morn-
jng or wait until 8:50 a special that will
make direct connections for Williams-
port and returning leave Williamsport
at 8:30 arriving here at 10:50.
The Bellefonte Central R. R. will run
a special back to the College on Satur-
day night and excursion rates on that
road will be 50cts the round trip from
State College to Bellefonte.
ANDREW Cook's PromorioN.—The
tentative quality in man is sure to find
its recognition at some time or other, the
latest verification of this being the re”
cent promotion of Mr. Andrew Cook, of
this place, to the superintendency of the
extensive coal operations of the Berwind-
White Co. in the vicimity of Punxsu-
tawney. Mr. Thos. Fisher, the com-
pany's former superintendent being call-
ed to a desk in the general office in Phil-
adelphia, Mr. Cook will succeed him as
director of the mines,
This promotion must certainly be a
source of gratification to Mr. Cook, who
has: for years been faithfully looking
after the Berwind White Co’s. interests
in the Snow Shoe and Karthause
region, His headquarters hereto-
fora have been at Bellefonte and
it. will be a cause of regret if
sence from our town. In this recogni-
tion of a careful attache the large coal
company has displayed the idea of mu.
tual advancement which should always
exist between employer and employed.
“Mr. Cook will have charge of the new
shaft of the Berwind-Whits Co. which
is nearly completed. Itis one of the larg.
est coal shafts in the Central Pennsyl-
vania coal fields. When in operation it
will have a capacity of from two to
three thousand tons daily, ani it is esti-
mated it will take fifty years to exhaust
the supply at that place. The vein is
from six to nine feet in thickness, and
the coal of the best quality.
From KaNsas IN A WagoN.—One
day last week a big covered wagon drawn
by two fine looking mules pasted
through the streets of Bellefonte snd
wended its way, dust covered and tired
looking, on to Zion. In it were com.
fortably ensconced Edwin Gephart, his
wife and four children. They bad
journeyed all the way from Elk county,
Kansas, a distance of over fourteen hun-
They started overland on the 9th of
September ani just forty-seven days
later reached tha homa of Mr. Philip
Gephart at Zion, who is the father of
the traveler. The trip was said to be a
very delightful one, fraught with very
little discomfort. The family siept in the
wagon and ate wherever they could find
a suitable camping ground. The trip
cost them $35. 1a the future they wil]
reside in Centre county as they had all
their goods shipped here.
CrLeBrATED THEIR RUBY WED-
ping.—Forty years of married life found
Mr. and Mrs. Gotlieb Haag, happy and
contented in their hotel on Bishop street,
on Tuesday, and in the evening the anni-
versary of their marriage two score yearg
ago was happily celebrated. A number
of their intimate friends dropped in to
wish them well and the merry party was
ona no longer young in years yet it

ance of complications that would nat-

Tar Law oN Birr PostiNg.—If any
of our readers are annoyed with bill
posters who plaster their barns, fences
and out-buildings with flaming bills of
one sort or another the following extract
from the law relating to such action will
be a good one to bear in mind.
It was passed June 8, 1881, and is as
follows : “If any person or persons shall,
without the consent of the owner or own-
ers thereof, wilfully daub, paint adver-
tisements or post placards upon, or other-
wise deface the walls of any buildings,
house or houses, or the fences around
the yard or yards connected therewith,
or any fence surrounding or enclosing
any vacant inlots, farm or farms, or
shall cause the sama to be done by others,
such offenders shall be guilty of a mis-
demeanor and upon conviction be sen-
tenced to pay a fine not exceeding $25
and undergo an imprisonment not ex-
ceeding 80 days, or both, or either, at
the discretion of the court.” . The best
way for advertisers to reach the people
is through the newspapers.

——The hole in rocks np in Patton
township which a number of Bellefonte
news making correspondents have de-
scribed as a beautiful cave, filled with
bewildering calcareous formations should
be seen to be appreciated. It ison the
farm of Mr. Wesley Gray, on what is
called the old Julian pike, and is really
nothing more than a hole that was un-
covered by some people from the Bald
Eagle valley who were quarrying stone
for a lime pit. The opening goes straight
down between two rocks and is about 2
feet square. It ends in a chamber aboug
6x15 from which place the ripple of an
under-ground stream can be heard. So
far as its having been frescoed with hiero-
glyphics and pictures and littered with
wooden and stone instruments of ancient
construction such a story is all the pro-
duct of Bellefonte newsmakers who are
humbugging city papers for the money
they get out of it. A WATeEMAN cor-
respondent explored it last Saturday and
founl it to be nothing more than an un-
usual crevice in a naturally open strata
of lime stone rock.
——A half hour spent in looking
over our assortment will give you
a fair idea of the popular styles and we
can only hope that it will be as much
pleasure for you to see as for us to show
our goods.—Samuel Lewin’s.
——John H. Reed, conductor, and S,
H. Blake, brakeman, of a Beech Creek
freight train were run over and killed at

men were sitting on the track behind
when it suddenly baeked up killing
them both. Reed was originally a resi.
dent of Philipsburg, but lately lived at
the V.aduct. Blake's home was at
Columbia Cross Roads.
