mittee was authorized to move the arc
light, on Linn street, from immediately
in front of the Methodist parsonage to
the intersection of Linn and Ridge
streets. This action aroused president

power to the committee.

Burgess W. E. Gray appeared and
asked permission of council to properly
uniform the policemen. He stated that
it was his desire to have them wear
helmets and comport themselves with a
dignity in accord with the office they
filled. Council concurred in the opin-
ion and hereafter our policemen will
look like officers of the law in every
sense of the word. This is a good move
and will meet with the entire approval
of the public.

many parts of the county that hay-

that there will be a scarcity of straw.

The entire community was startled to
learn of the sudden death of Mr. F. C.
Richards, which occurred at his home,
on east Linn street, in this place, on
Sunday afternoon. Very few of his
friends had heard of his being ill. In
truth there hadn’t been anything seri-
ous troubling him aside from a need of
rest and a change. It had been his cus-
tom for years to spend a week or so at
the sea shore every summer, and his
family, thinking that that was what
was needed advised him to go down last
week. He got as far as New York
where he was taken ill with heart
trouble and the proprietor of the hotel
at which he stopped, an old friend, tele-
graphed here of his condition. Edward
went on immediately and found his
father much recovered, but very anx-
ious to get back home. Upon return-
ing here he felt fairly well until Sun-
day, when he complained about an un-
easiness about his heart. He had been
smoking most of the day and being una-
ble to lie down went to his own room,
where a few moments later the boys
heard him gasping and ran to his side.
He was unconscious then and died in
five minutes, before a physician could
be summoned.
Frederic Constant Richards was
born at Locle, Canton Neuchatel,
Switzerland, on October 26th, 1826,
He came to America in 1848 af-
ter having completed his trade as a
watchmaker and opened a store here in
1871. When the war broke out he
enlisted and served honorably through-
out its entire duration and was a mem-
ber of Gregg post, G. A. R. No. 95, as
well as of the free masons.
As a watchmaker Mr. Richards knew
few, if any, more skillful mechanics.
He was entirely absorbed in his work
and had little enjoyment in anything
Deceased was 68 years old and leaves
a widow, one daughter and two sons:
The former, Constance, wife of Thomas
Hill, of Philadelphia; the Iatter:
Charles and Edward, both at home.
Funeral services were held at his late
residence Wednesday morning at 9
o’clock Gregg post and the Masons hav-
ing attended in a body, the burial being
made under the rites of the latter
CHILDREN’S Day. — Last Sunday
children’s. day was {appropriately ob-
served in the Methodist, Presbyterian
and Reformed churches. They were all
beautifully and elaborately decorated
with potted plants, roses and laurel.
The exercises in the Presbyterian and
Reformed churches: were held in the
morning and consisted of recitations and
songs by the little people and short ad-
dresses by the pastors, Dr. Laurie and
Rev. Gearhart.
In the Methodist church, after the in-
troductory address by Lulu Rine, in the
afternoon, the service prepared by Dr.
C. H. Payne, of the educational society
was rendered by Jennie Koontz, Edith
Otto, Katharine Schreffler, Josie Wil-
lard, Grace Blackford and Elizabeth
Rue, with Miss Lillie Smith as guardian
of the Golden Gate.
The members of the primary depart-
ment, one hundred and twenty in num-
ber, did themselves and their teacher,
Mrs. J. A. Woodcock, much credit.
Alice Lowry, Arthur Ward, Helen Ir-
vin, Mary Hicklen and Helen Rue, all
tiny little tots, delighted the audience
with their bows and appearance on the
platform, even if their voices were want-
ing, but Mary Crider, Helen Shaffer,
Frank Smith, Jennie Hafer, Rebecca
Hughes, Fanny Mulbarger and others in
the class did admirably in their recita-
tions, motion songs and commandment
and catechism drill. The evening ex-
ercises were a continuation of the after-
noon’s and from the modest man’s essay
on “the kind of a girl he would like to
marry,” to Elizabeth Rue’s collection
address, all were pleasing and good.
NEss,—On Tuesday H. Y. Stitzer sold
his stationery and book store in the
Reynolds’ bank building, on Allegheny
street, to Mr. C. J. G. Kurtz, of Read-
ing, who will conduct the business in
the future. He took charge the evening
of the day on which he made the pur-
chase. Mr. Stitzer will go back to the
practice of law and devote his time to
the management of his other business
interests hereabouts. It is possible that

NAME.—One of the stations on the
Beech Creek railroad is named ‘‘Pan-
ther Run,” and it is located ina most
picturesque part of the route traversed
by the railroad. “John of Lancaster,”
in an article written for the Williams-
port News, tells why “I onther Run’ is
so named, in the following words :
“Captain Sam Brady and Peter Grove
once pursued a band of murdering In-
dians up this little stream, and coming
upon their camp in the night killed a
big Indian named “Panther,” who had
scalped a number of white settlers in
Buffalo valley. The Indian path
leading over the mountains to the river
and Sinnemahoning, came up Beech
Creek to this run and then ascended it.
It was a favorite route for ‘sneaky’
Indians. Sam Brady knew this, and it
was here that he came ¢5 lie in wait for
them. And he got that particularly
bad one known to the white settlers as
the “Panther.” So it will be seen that
the little stream perpetuates more than
the name of an animal.— Ex.

It must be very gratifying to the prin-
cipal of the Bellefonte Academy and
his associate instructors to note the
good work recently done by boys who
have been trained at that institution.
James Marshall, who was prepared at the
Academy, was one of the first honor men
in the class of ’95, graduated from The
Pennsylvania State College last week.
Charles Kirk and Charles DeLong, two
later students at the Academy, were
among the three highest of those who
took the teacher’s examination recently
held in this place, for public school cer-
tificates ; while Fred Blanchard and Jay
Woodcock, who were prepared especial-
ly at the Academy, recently passed eat-
isfactory examinations for entrance to
Princeton. There is considerable sig-
nificance in this latter instance in that
the Bellefonte Academy is the only
school of its kind which has been grant-
ed the privilege of holding preparatory
examinations for Princeton.
A Harpy EVENT. At the residence
of Mr. Wm. Kerstetter, at Pleasant
Gap, on Tuesday evening, June 18th,
at 6 o'clock Mr. E. E. White and Miss
Minnie Steele, both of Axe Mann, were
united in holy matrimony, by Rev. J.
C. Young. The bride and groom are
young and we hope a long, happy voy-
age is before them over the sea of life to
the haven of rest and peace beyond
life’s transient dream.
