THINGS ABOUT TOWN & COUNTY
Mary had a little lamb ;
You do not look surprised ;
Of course you don’t, for Mary has
Been widely advertised.
And something you may learn from this,
If you are not a clam ;
You can be just as widely known
As Mary and her lamb.
Your name can be a household word,
And you be known so well,
That folks will confidently buy
The things you have to sell.
And when you once have got yourself
Into the cheering rays
Of the sunlight of publicity.
You bet your life it pays.—Printer’s Ink.

‘ Bad Weather for the Grangers.
A Large Picnic—A Small Exhibition--Question-
able Weather.—Grinning and Bearing It.—
Rain Every-day But One.
The Patrons of Husbandry, more
commonly called the Grangers, of Cen-
tre county are just now enjoying their
22nd annual picnic at Grange park,
Centre Hall. They began-to meet there
as early as last Friday and when Sunday
came there was a large number of tents
taken and indeed the people who went
early were there to enjoy the only real
good weather that has favored this sec-
Judging from the rain that annually
drenches them it is indeed a wonder that
the Grangers don’t begin to look
around for the Jonah that seems to
be continually casting most gruesome
spells over them. However they seem
nothing daunted with the unpropitious
elements and possibly enjcy it as much
as the daily visitors to the grounds,
who have really come to expect a
ducking everytime they go. It would
be impossible to describe the many fun-
ny situations that a storm produces in a
city of airy tents and gaudy canopies,
like there is at Grange park, and the
fastness of the colors in the girls’ gowns
seems to be measured by the alacrity
with which they run:
Yesterday afternoon our poet was
over and after the big storm that threat-
ened to Johnstown the whole affair
there wereso many laughable sights
among that great crowd that the muse
touched him for a special adaptation of
a stanza from the Ancient Mariner.
Water, water, everywhere,
In every nook and chink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Oh! how those gowns did shrink.
This picnic, it is announced, will
wipe out all the debts contracted for the
park as well as for the improvements.
In one respect it is the largest ever held;
that is, there are more tenters. As the
picnic is a distinctively Grange institu-
tion we suppose it matters little whether
there are many visitors or not, for those
who hold tents would doubtless enjoy
themselves just as much if only tenters
were allowed on the grounds.
Saturday was opening day and many
of the tenters arrived to get fixed up for
Sunday. Of courseevery one was jolly,
but there was good hard work done too,
for men were running hither and thith-
er with bundles of straw and boards,
and bedding and furniture, but by night-
fall all was comparatively quiet. The
vacant tents of the morning were ten-
sated with people who really need and
enjoy the week’s outing. In the even-
ing the Christian Endeavor Societies
held services in the Auditorium, where
the following interesting program was
Opening hymn ; address of welcome,
M. D. Fleming; solo, Miss Tacy
Kreamer ; recitation, Miss Emma Kuhn;
missionary tableau, Misses Derstine,
Romie Van Pelt, Zilla McGeehon, Flo
Clements, Edna Murray, Clara Swarm,
Grace Lee and Helen Hosterman ; reci-
tation, Miss Woods; Tableau, ‘Where
is my wandering boy to-night ?"’ Miss
Emma Kuhn, Hoffer Dale, John Hos-
terman, John Van Pelt, Willie Boozer,
Fred McGeehon and Edwin Kerlin;
recitation, by Miss Woods ; song, by
Miss Emma Kuhn, “We'll part no
more at even on the Rhine ?”” accom-
panied on the guitar by Miss Krise;
tableau, “Which will she accept?’
Misses Stella Krise, Emma Kuhn, Vina
Geiss, Tacy Kreamer, Mr. Walter Ker-
lin; recitation, by Miss Kuhn; duet,
“The patchwork quilt,” by Misses
Romie Van Pelt and Estie Ocker ; sun-
SUNDAY IN THE CAMP.
Was a quiet day though thousands of
visitors roamed about the grounds won-
dering what the many piles of canvas
along the “mid-way” concealed. Ths
weatner was perfect. Not a cloud to
mar the Italian blue of the sky and
everything most ideal, indeed, had it
not been for the dust—but that has since
been effectually settled. Three services
were held in the auditorium. In the
morning the sermon was preached by
Rev. Mr. Illingsworth. In the after-
noon Rev. Dr. Isenburg preached the
sermon, and in the evening Rev. Dr.
Goodling performed that duty. Allthe
sermons were enjoyed by those who had
the good fortune to hear them.
THE FINISHING TOUCHES PUT ON ON
Monday was a very busy day. Those
tenters who had not arrived on Saturday
gotin on Monday and lent an addi-
tional bustle to that caused by the arriv-
al of Parks ‘big circus” and a half
hundred other amusement enterprises.
Things coming under the head of ex-
hibits were slow at arriving and had it
not been for McCalmont & Co.; of this
place, and the Centre Hall Implement
Works, there would not have been any
implement exhibit at all worth men-
tioning. Possibly the one interesting
machine on exhibition was the corn cut-
ter and binder exhibited by the former
firm. The day was threatening and
not many visitors were seen on the
grounds. In the evening the picnic
was formally opened in the auditorium
by Master Isaac S. Frain, of the county
grange, and Col. Jas. F. Weaver,
grange lecturer, both gentlemen made
excellent addresses that were listened to
. with deepest interest by those for whose
* edification they were made.
Josh Foulk’s drum corps and the
Aaronsburg band wakened everyone
bright and early Tueeday morning to
begin the first real picnic day. Every.
thing was in shape by that time
though the weather was still threaten.
ing. The meeting in the auditorium
in the morning was carried on by the
women in a preliminary program, after
which William Benninger, of North-
ampton county, was introduced and
talked at length on the relation be-
tween the farmer and the grange. C,
L. Gramley, county superintendent of
schools, followed him with an enter-
taining talk on educational matters,
At the conclusion of his talk the meet.
ing adjourned until afternoon when
Sec. Edge, of the State Board of Agri-
culture, was one of the talkers. He
was followed by Dr. H. P. Armsby, of
the State College Experiment Station,
who gave an entertaining talk on scien®
tific farming. As Dr. Armeby is consid-
ered authority in his lines his address
was a very interesting one.
A Steriopticon exhibition or an il
lustrated lecture on forestry and birds
of the State by Doctors Rothrock and
Warren made up a delightful program
in the evening.
THE COLD WATER ADVOCATES,
In order to be ready for brothers
Zeigler, Thompson, Bailey and all the
other cold water advocates who were
expected Wednesday it had to rain
real hard in the morning. Water fell
in torrents, but they all lived through
it and were dry enough by the time the
Hon. Volney B. Cushing, of Maine,
their bright particular star, got through
with his address. J.T. Ailman, Sec
of the State Grange, Hon. Frank
Moore, Col. R. H. Thomas, of Mech-
anicsburg ; and Mr. Everson, chaplain
of the State Grange, were among the
other orators of the day. In the even-
ing Hon. W. W. Bovee, of Delaware
county, held forth in the auditorium.
During the day the man who runs the
merry-go-round fell over with heart dis-
ease, but the heroic treatment of his case
by band master Josh Foulk soon
brought him around again.
There was a big fight out at the “01d
Fort” and a man was reported killed,
but he came to after-a-while and walked
off with a few serious cuts and bangs.
A TERRIFIC STORM ON THURSDAY.
There is no doubt about it. Yester-
day was the big day atthe picnic.
There were many thousands of people
tempted to the grounds by the cloudless
sky of the morning and the promise of a
good time. All had scarcely arrived
until a fine drizzling rain began to fall.’
It did not interfere much with the
morning’s program in the auditorium
where W. F. Hill, lecturer of the State
Grange, and Senator Brown entertained
the people who would listen, but when
it burst forth in a terrible storm about
noon things were different. Everyone
hung onto his own tent ropesto keep
them from blowing away and visitors
crawled under whatever covering they
could find. Goodness how it did rain
and how the lightning cracked.
NEARHOOD’S HOUSE BURNED.
When the storm was most violent the
trame dwelling of George Nearhood, lo-
cated near the ground was struck by
lightning and burned to the ground.
The bolt that fell on it must have been
a mighty powerful one'for Frank Brad-
ford, the station agent nearly a quarter
of a mile away, was knocked over at
his desk ; a Mrs. Wigley, of this place,
and a8 Mrs. Showers and her son of Sun-
bury, who were fully 100 yards away,
wero knocked senseless and it was fully
ten minutes before they regained con-
When Nearhood’s house was discov-
ered to be on fire people ran to save its
contents, for it was known that the
family was tenting on the grounds,
Imagine the horror of those who arriv-
ed first when they found the apparent-
ly lifeless form of Reub. Meek, a son
of D. L.Meek, of Waddle station, ly-
ing out in the road in the mud.
He was picked up and it was
only by the hardest work that he was
brought back to life. He had gone to
the house to get a hatchet to release a
horse that had become tangled in a
barbed wire fence near by and was on
the porch when the lightning struck,
knocking him clear-out into the road.
His one leg was burned from the
hip to the ankle. Though still
very sick he was brought here last even-
ing and was taken on to his home.
Many horses were knocked down by the
same bolt but none of them were killed.
Theee accidents created so much ex-
citement that everything else was for-
gotten, even to the collapse of Har-
mon’s big boarding house, which went
down right in the midst of the storm.
The sky cleared up towards evening
and the entertainments went on as
usual last night.
Next week we will give a complete
I list of the exhibits.

Nor Muca DoNE AT CoUNCIL.—At
the regular meeiing of council, on Mon-
day evening, members Miller, Gerber-
ich, Williams, Valentine, Brockerhoff®
Bush and Brackbill were present.
Very litile business of interest was
taken up and what was done was trans-
acted in the following order:
The Street committee reported consid-
erable work done by their department
principally in the line of cleaning up.
Under this report the engineer present-
ed the profile of Willowbank street
ordered prepared at the last meeting.
The committee reported that Spring
creek had been cleaned out to a depth
of 16 in. in the vicinity of the C. R. R.
of Pa., passenger station. The channel
of the creek having been made broader
and more regular in its course it now ap-
pears a much pleasanter sight than it
has for years. If the creek was cleaned
out and walled up clear from that point
up to the dam above this office it would
be the most attractive feature of all the
pretty ones for which our town is noted
The expense of doing the work would
be small in comparison to the beauty of
the result and theadvisability of such an
improvement should be urged upon
The Water committee reported sever-
al leaks repaired, pipes laid to the foun.
dation walls of Meyers’ and Ward's
new houses on Curtin street, but that
the boilers at the water works were still
in a leaky condition, though it was in-
tended to have them fixed at once.
The Market committee was the only
other one to report and after it had an-
nounced the collection of $11.10 in fees
the miscellaneous business was taken up.
The Undine fire company’s commit-
tee was present to announce that dele-
gates] from the different companies in
town were unable to elect officers for
the department and they urged counci)
to take the matter under consideration
again and elect Mr. Frank Waltz of
their company. He was nominated by
Mr. Brockerhoff, while Mr. Valentine
nominated Joseph Wise. Members
Bush, Brachbill, Brockerhoff and Wil-
liams voted for Waltz, while Gerberich
and Valentine voted for Wise The
former was elected. Then John Traf-
ford, a Logan, was unanimously chosen
Justi why there should be so much
trouble over the election of an officer
who never has anything to do we are at
a loss to comprehend. It was thought
to have been a great stride toward a
more efficient fire service when the de-
partment was crganized, but tbe system
has been an utter failure, so far as ever
operating is concerned. The chief
marshall is all right for parades and
picnic purposes and it sounds big in
print, but so far as experience here is
concerned the chiefs of the differen
companies direct their work while in
service and should the marshall vouch-
safe any suggestions we fear he would
be in-.'ad to visit a place far hotter
than any of the fires the fighting of
which he is supposed to direct.
Samuel Deihl appeared and offered to
compromise the fight that he has with
council regarding the location of his
fence line, by giving up 6 ft of the
ground he now claims, measured in from
the pier of the bridge on Willowbank !
street. The matter was referred to the
Street committee, the engineer and
solicitor for consideration, after which
a complaint of a scarcity of water on
Beaver street was heard and bills aggre-
gating $112.39 were approved and coun-
——Kunes’ saw mill at Beech Creek
shut down last Friday after having saw-
ed up all its stock. 700,000 ft. is the
out-put of the miil this season.

Spencer’s comic opera, ‘‘Little Tycoon,
to-night. James Gleason and Miss Ida
i Harpster, of Houtzdale, will sing leading

——Miilinerv opening on Thursday,
26th Sept. at Katz's.
It will doubtless be a great sur
prise to many of our readers to learn
that during the month of August the
C. R. R. of Pa. handled a freight busi-
ness aggregating one hundred thousand
tons, while fifteen thousand passengers
! were carried during the month, an aver-
age of over five hundred daily.

little sketch of a trip from Howard io the Na

Pletcher, formerly of Nittany, Centre county*
who is in the 4th Auditor’s office; in Washing.

much evidenced through the article. Mr-
Pletcher is home on a week's vacation.
—After spending a pleasant ten days vaca.
tion visiting their parents at Fillmore and
friends in this place, Mr. and Mrs. Robert
McKnight Jr. have returned to their new
home in Philadelphia. Bob is connected with
the customs service in that city and likes it so
well that he says he would not come back to
Bellefonte. But he must have been foolin’..
—T. B. Buddinger Esq., of Snow Shoe, was
in town on Monday and Tuesday and dropped
in to see what grounds we had for saying, in a
recent issue, that he has grown rich. To tel!
the truth it was purely a surmise on our part:
but you can generally mark it down that when
you see a man who sticks to work like Mr,
Buddinger does that he is laying something
up against a rainy day.
—Mr. J. J. Brisbin who, with his cousin Gen,
Jas. 8. Brisbin, edited and published the Cen-
tre Democrat in this place at the outtbreak of
the war, spect several days among friends
hereabouts the past week. He left Bellefonte
as a soldier away back in the sixties, and has
made his home elsewhere during [all the in,
tervening years, but still has a warm side and
a kind word for the “dear old town.”
—Major Jared Fisher, of Penn Hall, was in
town, on Tuesday, looking a picture of health
and hurrying around town in a way calculated
to make many young fellows puff. The Major
has always been an active business man. He
owns a large store and a mill at Penn Hall, but
the best part ofit is that he extends his
activity into matters political as well as com-
mercial and he is a Democrat of the stripe of
which his party is proud.

O'Reilly are up from Harrisburg visit.

amusement for those with whom they come
in contact. Wilbur's friend is not the John
James O'Reilly of whom every body has
heard in song, but he is said to discount that
gentleman as an entertainer. Mr. O'Reilly
returned to Harrisburg yesterday, while Wil-
b ur went to Massillon, Ohio, for a short visit,
—Daniel Garman, Mrs. Henry Hoffman, Al
Garman, Miss Lulu Harper and Jerome Har:
per, all of this place, went to Altoona Saturday
evening, where they spent Sunday. The visit
was a sad one for them, since it was made to |.
attend the funeral of John Evans a relative
who was in business in that city. Mr. Evans
was at one time connected with the Bellefonte
steam iaundry and had many friends here.
He was a member of the Collin's Brazilian
rail-road building expedition.
Lee Woopcock HoNORED AT CAPE
May.—The following, from a recent is-
sue of the Cape May, N. J., Wave, is an
indication of the high esteem in which
Lee B. Woodcock, of this place, was held
while he was at the sea shore playing
ball this summer. He was there several
months playing with the collegians who
gather there every season to spend the
summer in that way. At theend of their
series they gave a minstrel show in the
production of which Lae’s rare musical
talent stood the boys in good stead.
“A most pleasant incident happened last Sat-
urday afternoon at the Athletic Park grounds.
As L. B. Woodcock, of the Cape May base
ball team was taking his place at the bat, Mr-
D. Marks, who has been an interested visitor
at the games all summer, stepped forward and
presented Mr. Woodcock with a handsome
ill rmbreila with a pretty cup attached, tied
with satin ribbons of the Cape May colors «
black and white. A card bore the inscription:
' “May your cup of happiness be ever filled.”
The present was given to him by his friends
; of the team, Boswell, Highlands, King, Rices
Fletcher and the Hollister brothers in appre:
ciation of his efforts as manager of the min-
strel performance last week.”

He HUNTED IN VAIN. —Last Satur-
day morning a lone hunter boarded an
east bound train at Centre Hall and
sidled into a seat at the end of the car
where he tried to make himself as small
as possible. He did not want people to
annoy him with the questions which he
was sure his dress and gun would cal}
forth, for he had been spending a few
days at Harpers, in Centre Hall, whence
he would go to the woods every day
in quest of squirrels. This hard work-
ing hunter was none other than Dan
