a child in Peter Keichline’s family.
Both places are under quarantine.
——A. OC. Mann’s large dwelling

that stood on a mantel in the house
did'nt even have to be removed.
——Miss Anna R. Whitney, daught-

of the bride's father who is well known
in this county.
——Rev. L. R. Janney, who lectured
Tuesday evening in the Methodist
church on ‘Life in India” is a very
pleasant and entertaining talker. His
lecture was replete with interesting facts
and personal observations and it was a
great pity that more did not hear him.

sums from $10 to $100.
—-— Mrs. Eliza Pifer, widow of Jacob
Pifer, deceased, died on last Sunday
evening at the residence of her daughter
Mrs. Adam Bucher, 212 Sixth avenue,
Altoona, Pa., after a lingering illness
from sappoplexy. She was formerly a
resident of Pine Grove Mills, this coun-
ty, and died at the advanced age of 81
years. She was buried in the Green-
wood cemetery, Altoona.
——--In theindustrial parade on Fri-
day last Mr. L. C. Bullock of Miles-
burg, bad a most creditable display.
Among other things was a gipsy wagon,
finished in the most artistic style. Some
people we understand have an idea that
the wagon was a gotten up affair for
show only. When we tell them that it
was built for a gipsy down the country
at & cost of $650. They can imagine
the kind of a “get up” it was.
-~—On Friday morning a man nam-
ed J. C. Wilson was brought to jail in
this place for having stolen a gold watch
that belonged to Mrs. Lukens, of Phil-
ipsburg. He stole the watch from the
residence of Mrs. Richards, who is Mrs.
Lukens’ mother. Wilson is an assumed
name, but the thief refuses to divulge
his identity, as he claims to have sprung
from a very respectable Washington
family upon whom he does'nt want the
disgrace of his plight to fall.
-—— While yesterday’srain wesineed-
ed badly it could not help but interfere
with the success of the Mattern reunion
which was held in Funk’s grove, near
Warriorsmark. A great family gather-
irg was anticipated. Most of the three
thousand invilations issued had been
accepted and arrangements had been
meade for a very pleasant day. Hon.
John W. Mattern, of Huntingdon,
to have delivered the historical address
and other well known members of the
family bad their part on the program.
— While the fakirs in town last week
were many they were jollied so by the
firemen that their harvest was not great.
The pickpockets, however, got there in
great shape. James Young, a traveling
man well krown in this section, was re-
lieved of twenty-five dollars. Mr.
Summers, of Beech Creek, and one of
the Holters lost every cent they had with
them. Mr. Kent, had his pockets rifled
to the tune of seventy-five dollars and
his ticket to Colorado. Sam Ewing, of
the College, is looking for thirty-eight
dollars: Mrs. Beezer, Mrs. Saterfield,
Mrs. Hazel, and the many others who
are out of pocket will long remember
the Centennial.
Another Class of Graduates From The
Pennsylvania State College.
The Centre County Institution of Learning.—
Growing in Everyway.—The Story of an In-
teresting Commencement Week.
Though the average person would be
confounded at hearing the closing of a
collegiate course spoken of in any other
terms than that of a commencement, yet
strange as it may seem, there is no well
understood reason why the exercises at-
tending the graduation of a class from
any institution of learning are spoken of
collectively as commencement. Unless,
perchance, it signifies the beginning of
the real life for men and women, who
have heretofore been more or less de-
pendent on parental care. :
The 29th annual commencement
at The Pennsylvania State Col-
lege opened with the baccalaureate ser-
mon, on Sunday. Rev. Dr. D. R. Breed,
of Pittsburg, preached from the text
“Godliness is profitable unto all things’’
—1I Timothy, 4-8. The minister did well
in abstaining from high flown philosoph-
ical discussions and did a good work
for the students in a simple, practical
talk on the profit of Godliness. The ser-
mon was necessarily directed to the mem-
bers of the graduating class, who oc”
cupied the front seats in the pretty little
chapel, and the seeds of good sown on
Sunday in that talk will never be known
until they blossom forth in the lives of
those who heard them.
The chapel was crowded with people
to hear the baccalaureate sermon. The
day was perfect and the many students
"with their visiting friends spent the day
that was left to them in roaming idly
about the well kept campus. The
grounds surrounding the institution
were in excellent condition, but the
want of rain was made very evident in
the brown, dusty lock thatthe grass
had and the dulled green of the over-
banging maples, the pride of the
Monday proved a twin of Sunday.
The weather could not have been finer
had it been a special order for the oc-
casion: Visitors continued arriving all
day, until by noon there seemed more
there than ever before. There being no
particular exercises scheduled for the
morning most of those already arrived
at the College spent it resting for the
festivities yet to come.
At 2 o'clock in the afternoon the 6th
annual inter-class athletic contests were
held, on Beaver field under the auspices

The evening found the chapel packed
with people to heer the Junior’s contest
in oratory. and after music by Stopper
& Fisk’s orchestra Gen. Beaver, Presi-
dent of the Board of Trustees, assumed
charge of the exercises in the absence of
Dr. Atherton, who was forced to remain
at home owing to indisposition. The
programme was carried through as fol-
lows :
Oration—Education and the Laboring Classes»
Raymond Adam Klock, Tiadaghton.
Oration—The Young Man in Politics,
Lewis Benscoter Carter, Retta.
Oration—The Lack of Reverence in American
Youth, Waller Addison Lyon, Harrisburg.
Oration— Electricity,
Frank Woodward Jessop, York.
Oration—Hidden Fires,
Frederic Alter Hemphill, Allegheny.
Oration—Lasting Impressions, i
John Frank McCormick, State College.
When John Frank McCormick had
concluded his last sentence, a pretty
tributejto maternity, the judges : Con-
gressman ‘‘Jack’”’ Robinson, of Media;
Prof. C. Alfred Smith, of Chicago, at
one time professor of chemistry at the
College and J. S. Weller, Esq., 89, dis-
trict attorney of Bedford county, filed
out to come to & conclusion as to which
of the six orators had excelled in the
various requirements laid down. Of
course there were many who thought
the judges would decide at once on Mr.
McCormick and then others believed
that Mr. Carter was best, but when the
announcement, that Mr. Hemphill had
been deemed the best, was made all re-
vised their opinions and agreed with the
As far as delivery and force were con-
cerned Messrs. Carter and McCormick
far surpassed any of the other cortest-
ants. They seemed enthused with their
themes and entered into the work with
a vigor and earnestness far removed
from the average student oratorical
After the contest many of the visitors
were entertained at the Phi Gamma
Delta, Beta Theta Pi and Phi Kappa
Sigma fraternity houses, where dances
were given. The two former having
divided the Stopper & Fisk orchestra to
procure music for dancing. The late
moon had risen far above Nittany’s
head ere the last tired couple found their
resting places for the night and slept,
while bright dreams of the morrow,
scurrying through their tired brains,
only cessed when the morning sun
peeped in to tell them Tuesday had
Tuesday was by long odds the busiest
day of the week. Every hour was taken
up with something or other and not the
least of it all were the meetings relative
to the government of the institution.
As early as 8:30 the old graduates of
the College, who had returned, met as
the alumni association and transacted
the usual routine business, included in
which was the election of officers for
the current year. They were all re-
elected except Prof. C. A. Smith 61, of
Chicago, who will succeed J. Price
Jackson ’89, of State College, as presi-
dent of the association.
The artillery salute at 9:45 was ex-
pected to waken late sleepers, but when
Commandant McCaskey’s squad of ar-
tillerymen, under Lieut. B. F. Fisher,
the stalwart atiblete, assembled at the
armory to man the guns they found
several of them spiked and all the rounds
of ammunition, but two, gone. The mid-
night pranks of happy students had done
the work of the artillerymen many hours
before they turned out for duty, so two
lone shots had to suffice for the usual
Gubernatorial salute of seventeen guns.
The Board of Trustees met at 10
o’clock in the chapel and had hardly fin-
ished their work when the call was made
for the alumni dinner at noon. The
business transacted at this meeting was
not made public, but 1t is generally un-
derstood that it had considerable bear-
ing on the work that has been planned
in consequence of the recent legislative
appropriation, to the College, of $212,-
000. The specific purposes for which
the mcney is to be used have not been
announced yet, but we were able to
learn that first of all, all the indebted-
nest of the College, except its bonded
obligation, is to be wiped out. Then
there is a sufficient amount provided for
the completion of the Mechanical
Engineering building, which is in sub-
stance really to pay & debt contracted
for its completion. Each of the depart-
ments are to have sums ranging
from $2,000 up for maintenance;
there is a portion for insurance and
lastly, the old stcne building is to be
improved with a new roof that will give
it a more modern appearance. We
speak of “improvement” with a reser-
vation in this instance, for it is a ques-
tion in the minds of many whether the
maseive old building can be improved.
It is the only familiar remnant of the
College of the sixties and to our mind |
itis more imposing in the solemn severity
of its present construction, than if it
would be capped with later day
minarets, domes and angles.
One of the best things done at this
meeting was the raising of the salary of
the President. It haslong been a cause
for wonderment that Dr. Atherton
should remain at the College, when ig
was known that he was continually re-
ceiving most flattering offers from ail
parts of the country. His love for State
and his untiring desire to place her on
a level with the most advanced universi-
ties of the land is the only reason thay
could be ascribed for his remaining her
President in the face of such conditions.
The increase was granted without solici-
tation and was an action in which the
Trustees recognized a service that even
under the new salary can never be fully
The alumni dinner was served in the
Armory, as usual, and furnished enter-
tainment for several hundred people for
nearly three hours. Caterer Achen-
bach, of this place, had charge of it and
of course the substantial part of the din-
ner was satisfactory. It seemed strange
to the old men not to see Hon. Francis
Jordon, of Harrisburg, present -to
preside. The dinner has been under his
especial care for years, but Gen. Bea-
ver filled his vacant chair, on Tuesday,
and did it with his accustomed grace.
Among those who responded to the
toasts that were proposed were :
Hon. “Jack” Robinson, of Media ;
General Latta; Congressman C. W.
Stone ; Judge John Greer, of Butler ;
Prof. C. Alfred Smith, of Chicago ; J.
S. Weller Esq., 89 of Bedford and
Chas. W. Burket, a member of the
graduating class.
At the meeting of the delegates and
alumui to elect trustees for the termes
of office to be filled the following were
chosen : ex-Senator Hood, of Indiana ;
Andrew Carnegie, Pittsburg ; Judge H.
B. White, Washington and J. A. Herr,
Clinton. Judge Cyrus Gordon. of Clear-
field, was elected alumni trustee.
The exhibition drill of the cadet
corps under Commandant Lieut.; E. W.
McCaskey, U.S. A. was given at 3
o'clock and notwithstanding the
threatening weather a large crowd
gathered on the parade ground to
watch the manceuvers. The new tac-
tics have eradicated many of the pret.
ty evolutions that the cadets used to
execute, but they made a fine exhibi-
tion in their drill, on Tuesday. The
appearance of the entire corps in white
duck trousers and blue blouse was de-
cidedly pretty and elicited much admi-

The graduation day, proper, came
with Wednesday morning, and the

——About the time of the closing
ceremonies of our Centennial on Friday
afternoon, the alarm of fire was sound-
ed, which proved to bein J. Malcolm
Laurie’s steam laundry. This building
is known asthe old Bayard foundry
and had been refitted for laundry pur-
poses by placing a board ceiling above
the second story, thus forming a loft
next the roof. The fire was started in
the second story—the wood work being
very dry ; it leaped like a flash from the
second story into the loft. It appears
that Mr. Laurie was out of the building
when the fire took place. As soon as
the alarm was given, Roy McCalmont
and George Harman gathered up four
hand grenades, which are quart bot-
tles containing a chemical fire extin-
guishing liquid and hastened to the
building where they succeeded in ex-
tinguishing the flames in the second
story ; but the fire having already gotten
into the loft, next the roof, they were
not able to inject the chemicals into
that locality. In the meantime, John
S. Walker and Isaac Underwoed at-
tached the small hose to a hydrant in
the Hale building, the water from which
also assisted in keeping the fire out of
the second story until the firemen ar-
rived with their large fire hose ; when
holes were cut into the loft through
which a supply of water was forced and
the fire was soon extinguished. Mr,
Laurie and Mr. Kearns, one of the em-
ployees of the laundry, state that the
chemical fire extinguishers furnished by
McCalmont & Co. were very effective,
wherever the liquid was applied to the
burning flames. >
