—The reunion of the Matterns at War-
riorsmark, last Thursday, attracted con-
siderable attention in this county owing
to the well rooted branch of that family
that has flourished in “Half moon’’ for
years. The Grays, the Matterns and
many other well known names to most
of our readers are in the clan, in one
way or another, so that the following
account of their reunion from Monday’s
Huntingdon News will be of interest to
most of you :
“The long-talked of gathering of the
direct and indirect descendants of the
early settlers in the Mattern family
took place in Warriorsmark, Thursday,
the morning exercises being held in the
Methodist Episcopal church and those
of the afternoon in the beautiful grove
adjoining the town. The early morning
trains, regular and special ‘on the Lew-
isburg and Tyrone railroad, poured into
the town a delegation of about six hun-
dred representatives of the family, to
which the people in the immediate
zountry added enough more to swell the
morning company to about one thou-
sand people. At 9:15, according to pro-
gram, the exercises began with prayer
by Rev. W. A. Mattern, of Blair
county, followed by the old and famil-
iar hymn “Blest be the Tie that Binds,”
excellently rendered by a select choir of
the young members of the family. The
address of welcome was delivered by
Hayes W. Mattern, of Warriorsmark,
and was filled with kindly greeting and
hearty good wishes. The response was
by Rev. J. A. Mattern, of Newton
Hamilton, and was couched in words
well chosen and forcibly expressed.
The tribute to the honesty, integrity
and piety of the elder Mattern people
was one of which any family might
well be proud. He made the following
remarkable statement: “1 say it to
the credit of the Mattern name, they
have been a moral and a religious peo-
ple. I know of no one who bears that
name who is a drinker of strong drink
to excess. I am acquainted with none
who sell rum.”
Miss Eva Mattern, of Pittsburg, a
grand-daughter of Geo. W. Mattern,
who was killed during the building of
the present railroad bridge at Tyrone
Forges, recited most artistically Will
Carlton’s poem, ‘Over the Hills to the
Poor House.” This recitation was
heartily applauded ; as was also the
genealogical history of his direct ances-
tors as given by J. Randall Mattern, a
very young man whose home is in Half
Moon valley. The historical sketch of
the Mattern family from the time of
their advent in this country was then
read by Hon. John W. Mattern, of
Huntingdon, Pa. This was a most in-
teresting paper and it was to be regret-
ted that the enfeebled condition of the
speaker made it impossible for many of
those present to fully hear and enjoy
this well prepared history. By motion
of the assembly a vote of thanks was re-
turned the author, with the request that
the history be given publication. Brief
addresses were then made by different
ones of the elder members of the family
after which the next two hours were
spent in social intercourse and in dispos-
ing of the well filled baskets and boxes
which had formed so prominent a spec-
tacle of the morning arrivals.
By 2 p. m. fully fifteen bundred peo-
ple had assembled in the Funk grove
where a naumber of addresses were de-
livered, one of the principal being by
Hon. J. G. Love. The entire direct re-
lationship present were then posed and
photographed by R. A. Bonine, of
Tyrone. The balance of the afternoon
was spent in social intercourse and was
much enjoyed. A permanent organi-
zation was formed by the election of the
following officers :
President, Rev. Jno. A. Mattern;
Newton Hamilton ; vice president, Wm.
J. Mattern, of Franklin, Pa.; Dr. Wm.
K. Mattern, of Philadelphia; John A.
Mattern, of Danville, and Samuel H.
Mattern, of Whiting, Ind.; treasurer,
A. J. Mattern, of Tyrone; secretary,
C. S. Jones, of Tyrone; corresponding
secretary, Dr. W. H. Flenner, of Ty-
rone ; Executive committee, John B,
Mattern, of Buffalo Run. Jacob H.
Mattern, of Warriorsmark, John W.
Mattern, of Philipsburg, Jerry C. Mat-
tern, of Hollidaysburg, and G. Perry
Mattern, of Osceola.
It was to be regretted that the threat-
ening weather of the early morning de-
terred so many who otherwise would
have been there. The day all in all, was
8 most enjoyable one, and will be look-
ed back to with pleasant recollections.
The Logan band, of Altoona, made
most excellent music during the day.
Upon the platform at the morning’s
session were the following aged re pre-.
sentatives of the Mattern family :

by Galey & Lord, which will employ
350 hands. ;
Mavca CHUNE, Pa., June 18.—The

Pine Grove Mention.
There is considerable speculation
among sporting circles over Saturday’s
base ball game. On that date the Lemont
team is coming to do up our nine.
The venerable Peter Keichline has been
lying at death’s door for some time. His
entire left side is paralyzed and his death
may occur at any moment.
Mr. C. B. McCormick has started out
as a reformer, he is now preaching clean-
linessdown in Nittany Valley, and indeed
is meeting with much success as a wash-
ing machine agent. He has sold sixty
washers in a very short time down in
Nittany, for the people recognize a good
thing when they can get it and at grange
prices too.
The prolonged drought still continues
and all vegetation is suffering. Unless
rain comes very soon, our agricultural
population will not enjoy the fat things
of the land. The frost did more damage
than was at first apprehended. With the
currency question and short crops we
have much to discourage us this season.
Many of the oat fields have been turned
into pasture lands while grass is scarcely
worth cutting. .
We desire to correct the name of the
little girl who was assaulted, she is the
daughter of John Holderman not
Calderwood as we stated. Sheriff Eckley
arrested George Goodwin the villain,
who was given a hearing before 'Squire
Miller when he was committed to fort
Condo to await the action of the quarter
sessions. He will in all probability
serve a time in the reformatory. He
is also charged with larceny.
Mrs. Sarah, wife of Peter Louck is suf-
fering from a partial stroke of paralysis.
She left her home in the early morning to
do the milking but not returning as soon
as usual, search was made when she was
found lying in the stable unconscious,
she was carried to the house and for a
time it was thought her life had gone but
at this writing she is better, and it is sin.
cerely hoped that her life may be spared.
Last Sunday evening was dedicated by
our M, E neighbors to the Children. The
services were in charge of the pastor,
Rev. Guyer, who commended both teach-
ers and scholars for the excellent pro-
gram. The music was excellent and the
exercises good. Little Homer Decker,
the boy orator was specially commended
for one of his years. The church was pro.
fusely decorated with roses and potted
plants and blooming flowers and stand-
ing room was in demand.
Mrs. Annie Leech, widow of the late
squire John Leech, died at the home of
her daughter, Mrs. Black, in Altoona on
the 18th inst, aged 82 years, from diseases
incident to old age. She was a good and
kind woman, who spent her busy life at
Graysville where her memory will be
revered. Her remains with a large num”
ber of mourners came by rail to Penna
Furnace on the a. m. train on the 19th.
Interment was made in the Graysville
cemetery on the hill, where her remains
now repose by the side of her husband
who preceded her years ago.
On Monday the 17th the sad message
was received hare announcing the death
of Thomas Weaver, only son of D. M.
Weaver of Bellwood.
well for his boyhood was spent in this
place where he was universally liked and
respected. He was only twenty two
years old and had been for some time a !
clerk in the R. R. office at Bellwood.
Uneasinesss and worry over his father’s
condition, which has been precarious tor
months, broke his health down and his
death came first. He wasa young man of
excellent moral character and his death
is exceptionally sad for his mother, who
knows that her husband is suffering from
an incurable disease.
DEATH OF Mrs. GARNER.—Mrs. Sarah.
wife of William Garner, died at her home
| near Pine Hall the night of the 18th inst
of paralysis and heart trouble aged 62
years and 11 days. About three years
ago she received the first shock
from which she lingered some months |
unable to speak or move about. The
last year, her health improved suf-
ficiently to visit her children and aid in do-
ing light work. Another attack brought |
the death message and she has gone from '
whence none ever return. Thus anoth-
er mentor of the family is gone and her
kind and motherly acts haye left their
impress on those left behind. She was a
lifelong member of the Reformed church
and was buried at Pine Hall on the 20th
inst. Rev.A. A. Black had charge of the ,

The Mate Found Guilty.

trade, the court of final judgment, has
rendered a decision upon the reports of
the Lowestoit inquiry into the circum-
stances of the sinking of the North
German Lloyd steamship Elbe
through collision with the British
steamer Crathie.
The board finds that Craig, the mate
of the Crathie, was alone at fault and

Books, Magazines Etc.
A number of extracts frora an amusing
Japanese “Life of Ganeral Grant” will be
printed in the July Century. The book was
written and circulated soon after General
Grant's tour around the world, but has become
very rare. The author has the greatest re-
spect for the soldier and statesman—this
“Heaven-bestowed wise man”—and he ex
presses it with true Oriental impressiveness.
He pictures General Grant at the head of his
troops, “shooting a glittering light from the
midst of his eyeball, lifting up his sword)
raising his great voicelike a peal of thunder.’
The iliustrations are characteristic. The “As.
sassination of Linccln” represents the mar-
tyred President struggling in the grasp of
five men with up-raised daggers.
