DeATH oF DR. DARTT.—For more
than a year Dr. Robert L. Dartt, the
well known and successful homeopathic
physician, had been suffering from
an incurable disease but so hero-
ically that even his most intimate
friends did not suspect the serious-
ness of his condition until he started
away on a vacation about July Ist.
After his return three greeks ago from
Wellsboro, where he and his family had
been visiting his father, he failed so rap-
idly, although he still practiced and sel-
dom complained, that at the earnest so-
licitation of his wife Drs. Carl Vischer,
port, were sent for to consult with Dr.
practice while he was away and his at-
tending physician. They were here
last Thursday and after a careful exami-
nation frankly acknowledged that his
case was almost hopeless. With his in-
domitable will and marvelous courage
he decided to undergo an operation,
and, after a few words of advice and
comfort to his family, walked down to
the station, got on the afternoon train
and started to the Hahneman hospital,
in Philadelphia, accompanied by Dr.
day morning fairly well; but the
hourly telegrams Dr. Locke sent Mrs
Dartt gave no encouragement and
his death, Monday afternoon, was not
unexpected to those who knew the na-
ture of his disease, cancer of the bowels.
Robert L. Dartt was born in Wells-
boro, Tiogo county, where he received
his early education. On graduating
from Hahneman Medical College, in
March, 1875, he came to Bellefonte and
began the practice of medicine with his
uncle, Dr. Tipple, who at that time was
the leading homeopathic phesician of
the county. Dr. Dartt was successful
from the first and for years he has had
one of the best paying practices in the
town. Sixteen years ago he married
Lydia Gregg Lieb, a daughter of the
late John D. Lieb, and built the house
on Allegheny street which has been his
home ever since.
His second wife, Annie Brumbaugh,
of Clearfield, her two little sons
and his two children John L. and
Robert Leroy, by his first marriage,
have the sympathy of the entire com-
munity for he was a kind companion-
able man, a valued member of his pro-
fession and his death will break up
their comfortable and happy home.
He was a member of the Methodist
church for years and his pastor, Rev.
Mr. Rue, assisted by the different minis-
ters of the town conducted the services
at this funeral, which took place at his
Interment was made in the Union cem-
etery and the pall bearers were W. T.
Speer, Mose Montgomery, John Ardell,
John Meese, H. H. Harshberger and
John P. Harris.
WaAT oF THE NAIL WORKS ?—
Last Saturday it became generally
known among Bellefonters that the
nail works, in this place, the property
of the defunct Bellefonte iron and nail
company, had been leased by the Com-
monwealth Trust Co., assignees for the
defunct nail company and Judge Beav-
er, of this place, to James Bailey, of
Harrisburg. The latter gentleman, no
doubt, representing a syndicate that is
endeavoring to secure control of all the
nail factories in the country, but for
what purpose ?
The leasing of the Bellefonte fac-
tory has caused no little excitement
among our people and business. men,
and well it should, for in the event of
its resumption employment will be giv-
en to about 200 workmen.
Exactly what conditions are binding
in the lease are not known, but while
Mr. Isaac Mitchell, agent for the as-
signees, is very sanguine that Mr.
Bailey’s people intend starting the mill
an early date there are others who think
it will not be put in operation. Mr.
Mitchell bases his conclusions on state-
ments made by the lessees. They want
the factory cleaned up at once and told
Judge Beaver that the Rogers tin plate
experimental apparatus should be re-
moved from the packing room. There
was a story going the rounds that Mait-
lands had been ordered to repair the
boilers, but Mr. Wm. B. Maitland, the
proprietor of the boiler works here»
knows nothing of it.
We have Judge Beaver as authority
for the statement that the Bailey people
objected to an operating clause in the
lease and also refused tu take the com-
pany houses about the mill. Now this
can be interpreted in whatever light
you please. We do not wish to be
considered as a pessimist but it
looks very much as if the lease
of the property was secured as
part of an organized scheme to get hold
of all the nail plants in the country.
The Lock Haven and Lewisburg mills
have been leased by the same people
within the last tw@@@®eeks. Neither
one of them are to bg'put in operation.
Consequently we are of the opinion that
the Bellefonte factory will be left stand
idle. The idea is simply to gain con-
properties. Both hoases will be of cased | ro] so that no opposition to the big syn-
brick, of modern architecture and very
ornamental in appearance. Henry

——In our obituary of Miss Kath-
arine Gross, last week, we neglected to
speak of a most commendable trait of
the dead girl. In her death the fact
has come to light that during the last
winter she almost alone sustained sever-
al needy families in the vicinity of her
home. The beneficiaries of her gener-
ous bounty will perpetuate the memory
of her sweet life as long as they live to
tell what an angel of mercy she was to
them in their period of destitution.
——The labor day races at the driv-
ing park, in Philipsburg, between the
Houtzdale fire company and the Hope
company of the former place, resulted
in a victory for Houtzdale. It has long
been a point of rivalry as to which or-
ganization could do the hub and hose
races the fastest. At the contest at
which the companies had backed their
men to the extent of $100 the Houtzdale
boys ran away from their rivals. In
the hub race they were winners by 14
seconds, while they won the hose race
in 38 seconds. The Hope team now
claims one of its men sold the race and
will issue a challenge for another $100
contest. The Hopes won everything in
sight at the tournament here in June.
OFF ¥OoR LouIlsvILLE.—The national
encampment of the Grand Army of the
Republic at Louisville, Ky., this wesk,
has been a remarkable conveation of
old soldiers and their friends. Not
alone owing to the magnitude of the
gathering, but possibly more to ths sig-
nificance attached to the first visit of
the organized federal veterans into ter-
ritory 30 contiguous with that of their
enemy of three decades ago.
‘While Henry Watterson, the distin-
guished editor of the Courier Journal,
through whose efforts the blue was per-
suaded to accept the hospitality of Lou-
isville, will doubtless be very happy, he
will not be more so than the twenty-
two vets and their friends who left here
in a special car, on Saturday evening
at 5.15. When the train pulled out
the old fellows looked ss Kappy as a
parcel of kids, all with 8 sleds, and
the way John Bryan stood¥on the rear
platform and saluted the little group of
people about the station reminded one
of Ben. Harrison’s memorable speech
making tour of the country by rail, ex-
cept that John pulled hard and fast on
a cigar that had Benj, smoked he would
never have lived to suffer defeat at the
hands of the Democracy.
In the party was David M. Glenn,
who lost his buck-tail not long since,
and thought he would lose his identity
with the famous regiment of that name;
Thomas Donachy, commander of Gregg
post, Ne. 95, whose knack for making
friends of most anybody was nicely dis-
closed during the recent Quay-Hastings
fight in this county ; then there was
James Ray and Cal. Bathgate, of Le-
mont ; S. H. Osmon, of” State College ;
James Knox, Charles Eckenroth, John
Bryant and Andy Lucas, of this place ;
J. P., and J. M. Ross, of Linden Hall ;
George Ulrich, of Millheim ; Wm.
Horner, of Pleasant Gap ; George W.
Schrock, of Mifflinburg ; J. S. Kream-
er and Will Motz, of Woodward ; and
J. W. Showalter of Buffalo Run.
Awong others in the party were Frank

~ Wedon't like to say such a thing
but the delegation that went from here
must have been pretty full by the time
it reached Pittsburg for, notwithstand-
ing it took only one car to get them in
when they departed, the Pittsburg

they passed through the Smoky city.
For the consolation of friends here we
might add that newspaper people often

GONE To JOIN THE CIRCUS.-—W hen
Washburn’s circus was here, last Thurs-
day, the weakness of the bands was
commented on by everyone, but naone
appreciated the fact any more than the
proprietor himself. He had just sent
his concert band off with his Uncle
Tom’s Cabin Co., the week before, and
was onthe lookout for musicians to
strengthen up with. Upon inquiry he
made arrangements with a number of
the embers of the Coleville band to
join him for the balance of the season,
lasting three months, on a southern trip.
They were to have furnished a band
of eight pieces for the show and the
boys contemplated doing it with the
following men : Samuel Bryant and
Charles Rote, cornets, Coleville; Clay-
ton Rote, baritone, Coleville; Bruce
Garbrick, bass, Coleville; Jim Stover,
big drum, Coleville; George Glenn,
snare drum, State College ; Clay Rider,
alto, Coleville and “Doc’’ Proudfoot,
tenor, Milesburg. All the men agreed
to go, but when Monday came, the day
on which they were to join the circus in
Philipsburg, Glenn and Rider had
backed out. The other fellows started
off determined to have a good time and
make as much out of it as possible.

very sick man when he left and his
friends all felt very sanguine of Lis be-

was made Wednesday morning.
Mr. Beezer is to all appearances a
man of perfect physique. He has rare-

injury he sustained from a strain at

‘When the disease, with which he now

to be a return of his old trouble, but the

——At a picnic at Port Matilda on
Saturday last, John Young, aged about
12 years, son of William Young of that
place, fell from a swing to the ground,
a distance of about twenty feat, and
broke the bones of both legs a few inches
above the knees. There were some
stones where the lad alighted and one
Jeg was considerably cut. from the fall,
and his chin was also cut by coming in
contact with a stone. Itis thought the
lad alighted on his knees and the weight
and force of his body caused the bones
of his legs tosnap in two. The swing
is a wooden one, and it was about
level with the tree when the
boy’s feet slipped, and losing
his grip atthe same time he fell. An-
