A Review oF THE Past WEEK's |
Busingss. — Dunn’s financial agency
gends out the following summary of
business in the United States for last
week : |
‘ Congressional adjournment, and |
proof that though the rate of exchange |
rises to and even above the shipping
point gold does not go out, have pro-
duced a much better feeling. Prices do
not improve, und there is on the whole
no gain, but some loss in wages, while
strikes of 15,000 coal miners near Pitts-
burg and several thousand building work-
ers in New York, besides strikes in ten or
twelve textile and iron establishments,
further lessen purchasing power for
demand for goods is general, and many
are manufacturing and buying beyond
present need on the strength of it,
Fears of financial disorder no longer re-
tard, tb ough the redemption ot notes has
averaged $221,000 per day for the month,
but the fact that only $302,704 gold has
been exported since February 2 against
$26,523,936 in January, strengthens the
impression that further exports will
somehow be prevented.
«Exchanges through clearing houses
are 7.9 per cent. larger than last yenr,
but 22.6 per cent. smaller than in 1893,
which for the first week of a month
shows little gain. Money markets have
hardened somewhat, and rather more
commercial paper is offered, especially in
dry goods. Liabilities of failures in
February amount to $11,250,122 against
$17,895,670 last year, $3,619,782 being
in manufacturing, against $9,109,986
last year and $6,924,692 in trading,
against $8,220,207 last year. Tailures
for the week have been 234 in the Uni-
ted States against 248 last year, and 58
in Canada against 60 last year.
FosTErR STILL HARPING ON THE
WEATHER. —ST. JoskpH, Mo., Murch
7.—My last bulletin gave forecast of the
storm waves tG cross the continent from
March 7 to 11 and 13 to 17. The next
will reach the pacific coast about 17th
cross the western mountain country by
close of 18th, the great central valleys
from 19th to 21st and the eastern states
about the 22nd.
The course of this storm wave will
probably take a southern route and the
amount of precipitation caused by it will
be large as compared with other storm
waves of the month.
Taking the whole country the temp-
erature average will run low during
the middle part of March, but rvead-
ers must remember that the tempera-
ture averages above on the south
side of the storm tracks and below on
the north side. The warm wave will
ecross the western mountain country
about 17th, great central valleys about
19th and eastern states about 21st. Cool
waves will ercss western mountain
country about 20th, great central val-
leys 22nd and easter states 24th.
A total eclipse of the moon will take
place on the night of March 10, by as-
tronomical time and about 1 o’clock on
the morning of 11th by civil time. As-
tronomers begin the day at noon and
our civil laws make a legal civil day be-
gin at the midnight before. For this
reason there is often a misunderstanding
about. dates when speaking of astro-
nomical matters. This difference in
time has been running so long that the
records would be badly mixed by making
a change so that astronomical and civil
time would agree, but many astrono-
mers advocate such a chenge.
Dip You SEE THE EcLIPSE?—A
total eclipse of the moon was scheduled
for Sunday night and many were the
people who remained up to see it. But
their disappointment became supreme
when the sky, which had been unusual-
ly clear early in the evening, began to
cloud over just about the time the
eclipse was to begin.
At first the clouds appeared white and
fleecy, but as the night wore on they
began to bank in the east and it was not
long until the moon was entirely ob-
scured from view. A rift here and
there in the clouds gave the watchers
an occasional glimpse of the moon and
when the eclipse first came on it could
be seen with a certain degree of satis-
faction. It was a great disappointment,
however. For early in the evening
there was every indication that a splen-
did spectacle would be presented. The
moon sailed toward the zenith in all the
retulgent splendor of fullness and seem-
ed so proud and glowing in her majes-
tic sweep of the heavens that the idea of
her losing all the light she reflected
seemed almost impossible.
Ecaors FroM THE ELECcTION.—The
court having refused to order a special
election to decide the tie between A. J.
Graham and J. W. Stein for council
from the 3rd ward of Philipsburg the
council of that town is authorized to
make a selection. It being Republican
Mr. Graham will hardly be in it.
The court has appointed A. Weber
burgess of Howard. There was a tie
in the vote between Mr. Weber and

the residents along the water below it.

— Achenbach, the baker, caterer and
confectioner, will move 1nto his hand-

for him at his present room on Bishop
street you will please remember that he
has moved to the building formerly oc-
cupied by Beaver & Dale, lawyers, on
Allegheny street, where he will be
quartered in elegant fashion.
——« Little Trixie,” the musical
comedy which comes to Garman’s next
Monday night, answers well as a vehi-
cle for the antics of some very clever
people. First among these is the in-
imitable little comedienne, May Smith
Robbins, one of the greatest little
dancers in America. She is also a
sweet singer and acts her way into the
hearts of all. She is just returning from
a phenomenally successful eastern tour
and has a very large company. As this
company are great favorites here the
opera house will undoubtedly be filled
to its utmost capacity.
BELLEFONTE ACADEMY OPEN TO
TEACHERS.—1t will be of interest to all
teachers in the county, whose schools
will soon close, to learn that the Belle-
fonte Academy, with its many and su-
perior advantages, will provide a special
and thorough training for those who
wish to pursue their studies further.
Teachers may enter at any time. At
the conclusion of the school term in
June a special term will continue until
July 31, for the benefit of teachers. For
further information address,
J. P. HugHES, Principal.
“Litre Trixie.”—The play that
goes by the above caption is a sparkling
musical comedy that has met with suc-
cess wherever it has been given. Every-
where praises of its entertaining features
are sounded and it is endorsed by the
press and public, in the cities where the
company has appeared, as one of the
very best. The star of the company,
May Smith Robbins, is a charming little
Irish girl, who is a favorite with all
who know her. She is a talented imper-
sonator, a sweet singer and a wonderful-
ly graceful dancer. She has filled two
previous engagements here and is likely
to have a good house when she comes to
Garman’s again next Monday night.
"He MapeE THREATS.—Jacob From,
ot Centre Hail, was recently bound over
for his appearance at court by ’Squire
Boal. The case against him developed
at the hearing was this: Samuel Rowe
charged him with having made threat®
against him and to substantiate his
charge produced a man named Zeigler
who swore that From had offered him
$25 to set fire to Rowe’s stable.
DxaTH oF Mrs. E. PorTER TATE.—
At her home, near Jacksonville, last
Thursday morning, Mrs. E. Potter Tate
departed this life. Deceased leaves a
nusband and seven children to mourn
.er early death. She was just forty-
aight years and seven months old. In-
terment was made in Meyer's grave
yard, Buffalo Run, on Sunday morning.
THE BOARD OF TRADE AT LAsT.—
On Tuesday night enough members of
the Board of Trade got together in an
adjourned meeting to transact some busi-
ness which a lack of a quorum on the
regular meeting night had forced over.
The most important item to be consid-
ered was the proposition from some gen-
tlemen who are desirous of starting a
wire-giass factory here. Messrs Wil-
liam Shortlidge, A. S. Garman and E.
K. Rhoads were appointed a committee
to look into the offer and report their
The question of cheaper telephone
rental was thoroughly discussed and the
secretary was authorized to invite the
projectors of the Dougherty type writ:
ing machine manufactory looking for a
location to come here and see the in-
ducements held out.
No report was heard from the com-
mittee on the shirt factory and it is
thought that project has fallen through
as the people do not seem to take hold
of the scheme as they should.
Hearts NEws.—The Board of
Health at its last meeting instructed the
secretary to have that section of the law
relating to contagious and infectious
diseases printed in the newspapers in
Bellefonte for the benefit of the public.
It is to be hoped that wherever such a
disease is known to exist it’ will be
promptly reported, not only by physi-
cians in attendance, whose duty it is to
report the same, but by any person
knowing the same, as the recent experi-
ence of the Board with a case of scarlet
tever leads it to believe that cases might
arise which would be kept from
them temporarily, thereby endangering
the lives of many by a spread of such
The section referred to reads as fol-
lows: ¢It should be the duty of all
physicians practicing within the borough
to report to the secretary of said Board
of Health the names and residences of al]
persons coming under theig professional
care afflicted with such contagious and
infectious diseases, in the manner direct-
ed by the said Board.” .
Tee LiceNse QuestioN.—The li-
cense applicants whose petitions were
not acted upon definitely Tuesday of
last week know where they are at now,
for the court has considered them all
and from among those held over the fol-
lowing have been granted.

There is ona application still held.

year thirty-five out of forty-two appli-
cations were granted while this year
there is fn increase of thres. Judge
Love having granted thirty-eight out of
fifty-three, with one yet to dispose of.
The two old licenses at Casanova, in
Rush township, held by R. G. Askey
and Jacob Sancroft were refused, while
that of Boston Veihdoefer, at Snow
Shoe, was withdrawn.
A SUICIDE IN PHILIPSBURG.—James
Rector, a tall, fine looking mulatto, who
had arrived in Philipsburg seven years
ago from Fauquier county, Va. and had
been a sober, steady employee of the
tannery in that place ever since, walked
into Gardner's livery stable, adjoining’
the Central hotel, on Tuesday evening,
and shot himself dead.
The suicide caused considerable ex-
citement in the town as no reason can
be ascribed to the action. The young
man had a nice little bank account and
$75, together with a license to marry
Jennie Peyton, a respectable colored
girl of the town, were found on his per-
son by Justice La Porte’s jury.
The stable in which the rash act was
committed is located on Pine street and
there was no one about but a huckster
named Cross. He paid very little at-
tention to the man when he walked into
the door, but was busy unhitching his
team, until the sharp report of a pistol
attracted his attention. He then saw
the man take about two steps and fall
dead in the doorway of the stable. He
had shot himself through the heart and
in his death clutch he still held a smok-
: ing revolver.
——Rev. Samuel Creighton, who was
recently appointed to fill the place of
the late Rev. Max Lanz, at Lewistown,
has been forced to retire from active pas-
toral work, owing to a shattered ner-
vous system. A successful revival ser-
vice took his health again.
DEATH oF MRs. SHAUGHENSY.—On
Wednesday morning early Mrs,
Thomas Shaughensy, of east Howard
street, died after a long illness. Deceas-
ed was one of Bellefonte’s oldest resi-
dents, having heen 74 years old, and
was much esteemed by all who knew her,
The husband preceded her to the grave
just four years ago and four children
are left to mourn her death. Funeral
services were held at the house yester-
day morning at 10 o’clock.
—— Plummer, the eldest son of Rev.
J. H. McGarrah of this place, died at
Ramey, Clearfield county, early yester-
day morning. For a long time he had
been afflicted with throat trouble but
such a sudden termination of his dis-
ease was little expected. His aged
father was completely prostrated when
he received the sad news of his boy’s
death. The body will be brought here
and then taken to Manor Hill, Hun-
tingdon county, for burial beside the
remains of Mrs. McGarrah, who died
just a year ago. The lonely father has
the sympathy of all who are cognizant
of his great grief.
——Lyon & Co’s., mammoth store in
this place 1s crowded every day with
people who are wise enough to take ad-
vantage of the great sacrifice sale now
advertised by that firm.
