Pine Grove Mention.
Whew! how it did snow on the last
day of September.
Miss Jennie Keyser left for her home in
Milton after a pleasant visitat the cosy
home of Mr. and Mrs Levi Kreps, on Main
The two fever cases announced in our
last issue, Misses Smith and Krebs, are
past the critical period and are conval
escing. .
We are sorry to note the serious illness
of old Mrs. Catharine Kreps, who is suf.
tering with that much dreaded disease
The dry and windy weather with sever:
al frosts have hastened the maturing of
the corn crop. It is ready for the crib.
The crop is the largest in many years.
The clover seed crop is being hulled and
proves tobe the most prolific crop grown
in the valley for the last twenty years.
Some farmers will have as much as eigh-
ty bushels of seed.
The panther shooting incident that was
supposed to have occurred last week has
put our nimrods on the watch in the vic-
inity of 0. M. Whipple's log camp where
report says the logmen shiver in their
bunks listening to the hideous midnight
squals of a man.eater. We wouldn't be
surprised if it were a catamount,
old soldier made happy. After being re-
peatedly rejected by the Harrison admin-
istration Harvey Yarnell was agreeably
surprised last week on receiving notice
. from his attorney that his pension had
been passed upon favorably, allowing him
eight dollars per month with three years
of back pension. The old veteran is to be
congratulated on his good luck. This is
the third case in our town, turned down
by the former administration, that has
met with favor by secretary Hoke Smith
and Comissioner Lochren.
A recent six o'clock a. m. marriage par-
took very much of the nature of a sur-
prise to the hosts of friends of the young
couple participating when 1t was
learned that Jacob Neidigh and Cora
Cronemiller, armed with the proper
credentials, took advantage of the pure
and fresh morning air and drove
from Pine Hall to Boalsburg, without
a stop, presenting themsclves before
lev. Black, really before breakfast. But
the reverend gentleman is always pre-
pared for any emergency and in
his usual happy manner pronounc-
ed the young people man and wife.
Then they journed back home, more
leisurely, to pursue their daily vocar
tions, as though nothing of importance
had occurred. The bride, Miss Cora, is
the second daughter of Geo. Cronemiller
of Pine Hall, and is a pleasent and estim=
able young lady, while the groom, Jacob
Delvin . Neidigh, is a young
farmer. We hope the young couple will
have as fair sailing all through the voy-
age of life as they had in the early morn.

pleased with the great natural beauty which
surrounds it.
On Wednesday evening a very quiet wed-
ding took place at the M. E. parsonage. The
contracting parties were Mr. Harvey Gruver
and Miss Lizzie Rupert both highly respected
young people of this vicinity. They have our
best wishes for a long, happy and useful life.
About four o’clock Sunday P.M. the town

which was found to be at the home of the Hon,

town reached them. We are pleased to say
that no further damage than the burning ot
the porch roof was sustained.

home near this place, last Thursday, with
cancer, took place Saturday the 28th ult. Inter-

days. Owing to Rev. Sarvis’ absence, last Sun-
day Rev. Cramer, filled the pulpit in the Meth-
odist church and preached his farewell ser-
mon. The people of this community are very
sorry to iose so good a man as Rev. Cramer.
Your correspondent having been in conser-
vation with one of the faithful who had attend-
ed the convention at Williamsport, found him
so delighted with his trip that he says he
would go every week if he could have as good
a time as he had while there. He reports no
end to the good things to eat and, of course,
not much to drink but as he was not used to
city water he took his iced all right. Dave
there may be another for you yet.
We were informed, on Monday last, by one
of our neighbors that there was a coal bank
being opened up at Six Mile run on the public
road leading from this place to Philipsburg
and that he was told by the parties opening
the bank that he could get all the coal he
wanted, so that we will have a coal mine with.
in six miles of our town. This will very
| be elected. Being informed as to the places our
materially lessen the price of coal at this place
and will be quite an item in the expenses of
the poor of our community.
What has become of the candidates for the

ty had made any nominations and on learr-
ing to which faith he belongs, being a Popu-

interview the gentlemen, as he seems very
anxious to see good men placed in office this

“Alone in Chins,” by Juliar Ralph, pub-
ished in Harper's Magazine for October, is a
‘new departure in fiction. The heroine is the
daughter of a wealthy Pittsburg m anufactur-
er, who marries a Chinaman engaged in a dip.
lomatic mission at Washington. The story
concerns itself chiefly with the troubles of
the American pride in her oriental home, and
is based upon Mr. Ralph's observations of the
domestic customs of China during his
recent journey. The story is admirably illus-
trated by C. D. Weldon.
