Huntingdon Semi-Weekly News pub-
lished the following account of the mar-
ringe of Joseph J. Rhoads, second son
of the late Judge Daniel Rhoads, of
this place, to Miss Petrikin, of Hunting-
don. The ceremony was performed
last Thusday evening.
A pretty wedding took place at the home of
the bride, No. 226 Penn street, Thursday eve-
ning at 8 o'clock, Miss Margaret M. Petrikin
being married to Joseph J. Rhoads, of Belle-
fonte. Rev. D. K. Freeman performed the
ceremony, using a ring. The bride was at-
tired in a handsome white satin gown, trim.
med with pearls and lace, and came into the
room leaning on the arm of the groom, fol-.
lowed by her sister, Miss Mary Petrikin, maid
of honor. Fifty or more guests were present
from Bellefonte and Huntingdon. The pres-
ents were elegant.
The bride is one of Huntingdon’s most
beautiful and accomplished young ladies.
Her husband is a supervisor on the P. R.R- at
Burlington, N. J,, and a worthy young man.
The bridal party left on Philadelphia express
for the east.
eph Callahan’s production of ‘Faust’
at the Garman opera house, on Tuesday
evening next, Oct. 220d. He is ably
supported by Edwin Boring, in the title
role of Faust ; Miss Beatrice Ingram as
Marguerite; Mrs. Addie Farwell as
Martha ; and other competent members
of the company. Mr. Callahan has be-
come thoroughly familifr with the
requirements of the difficult role of Me
phisto through years ofstudy and exper-
ience.. The electrical effects in the
spectacular production of ‘Faust’ are
simply indescribable. They surpass
any and all similar features. Mr. Joseph
Callahan is a ycung, ambitious actor,
and has already done himself credit.
Audiences have applauded him in per-
formances in which a better known
actor has been billed as Mephisto. The
spectacular Mephisto is by reason of
merit Mr. Callahan’s lineal legacy.
Miss Beatrice Ingram is a pretty, guile-
less and affectionate Marguerite. In
the prison scene, in the concluding act,
her interpretation is highly effective.
Mr. Callahan’s support throughout is
competent, and should lead him on to
protracted successes, Admirers of
Goethe's masterpiece have a great treat
in store.

tion of the wheel of time have again re-
corded a prosperous year in the history
of the Stormstown I. O. O. F. lodge. A
blessing to many in the nine years ot its
existence, to the sickand distressed it has
been an angel of mercy. Throughout
its history it has been distinguished for
its generous gifts and good deeds and it
is well founded on the solid ground ot
friendship love and truth. On the 11th of
October, D. D. G. Master Cronister con-
ducted the installation of the follow ing
officers. N. G., Harvey Scott; V. G, J. W.
Basor ; Per. Sec., W. C. Biglow; Ast. Sec.,
George Tyler; Treas., R. J. P. Gray; R. S-

Hartshock ; chaplain, J. H. Lever. After
the installation the sixty members pres-
ent which.ncluded a representative from
Pittsburg, State College and Penns Val-
ley were marched tothe lunch room by
T. G. Burket and Bob Gray. Chaplain
Lever invoked the divine blessing, and
deputy Cronister urged everyone to eat,
drink and be merry. For one hcur the
guests followed his injunction so heartil y
that we could not imagine where the ach -
ing void that Bob Gray and Scott Miles
complained of was located. As one time
it was feared a derrick would have to be
procured to remove Cronister and T. G.
Burket from the festive board ; but they
recovered sufficiently to help on with the
speeches which followed the feast. Mr.
Cronister called the company to order
and in a few well selected words told of
his work in the county during the last
week. He had helped install the officers
of six lodges in five nights, and not any
of them were in a healthier or more pros-
perous condition than the Stormstown
lodge. At twelve o'clock the members
and visitors bade each other good night,
and started to their homes much pleased
with the general good will and fraternal

There have been some strange happenings
in our neighborhood, since our last report,
some of which we will briefly relate.
The chicken thieves have awakened from
their lethargy to go to work again. Mr. Dan:
iel Adams, of thistownship, was relieved of
his flock, on Saturday night, but we did not
learn how many there were in it.
Some time ago we noted that we were to
have steam power at our grist mill. The en-
gine arrived on Monday and will be put in po-
sition in a few days. This will be good news
to the people of this community as it has
caused much inconvenience to depend on an
unreliable water power.
The remains of Roland C. Richards who
died last Saturday, in Altoona, were brought
here on Monday and buried in the U. B. ceme-
tery. He leaves a widow with four children
to mourn his death. His widow’s maiden
ing business in that place quite a number of
years ago.
Philip Young, our genial postmaster, Stew:
art Jones and Clyde Reese, of Hawk Run,
Clearfield county, made up a hunting party
that is spending a few days hunting and trap-
ping in the mountains. I expecta good re-
port from then as they took grub enough to
last a month. Pailip has his violin with him,
to charm the game, and I know it will have
the desired effect.
We have all kinds of crime going on in this
part of the moral heritage, as the following
will show : Mr. Wilson Williams, of near Mar-
tha Furnace, having built a new house this
summer which he has not occupied yet on ac-
count of the damp plaster, stored several
bushels of onions on the garret of the new
building. One night recently some one stole
about three bushels of the odoriferous bulbs.
Another dastardly deed was committed here
a few days ago. Mr. George W. Kelly and
his son Benjamin were the sufferers. They
had brought their cattle in from the Alie-
gheny mountain pasture lands and turned
them into a field on their farm along the pub-
lic road. A coward, who deserves the worst
punishment the law can inflict, poisoned
them the other night, from the effects of
which three of them died. This is the second
case of cattle poisoning in this vicinity within
the last three months; Messrs. Pringle and
Adams having had three killed in the
same way. If is about time to “‘let up’’ on this
kind of business as the guilty parties will
eventually be discovered and will then get
their just deserts. .
On last Saturday, while one of our young
men was gunning on Muncy mountain, south
of town, and just a short distance from the
top, on the Half-moon side, he came across
the carcass of a beef that had been killed
either late Friday night or early that morn-
ing. Everything looked as fresh as if the
beef had just been butchered. Both hind
quarters and one fore quarter were gone,
while the other fore quarter and the hide
were left behind. Your correspondent and
some others went up on the mountain, on Sun.
day morning, to examine the place and found
that the remaining parts that had been there
on Saturday morning were gone. On inquiry
it was found that Wm. B. Way, of Half-moon
had been out hunting his cattle when he
found the part of the beef which he recog-
nized as his own by the hide and took it
home with his other cattle that were pasturing
near by. If the perpetrator of this crime is
found ha will be very apt to get a frae trip to
Allegheny. :
Another happening we have to chronicle oc L
curred here, on Tuesday morning. Mr. W. F
Things That Have Happened at State
About twenty mining engineering students
went to Penns Cave, on Saturday, where they
carried on some stone investigations relating
to their department. "They were accom
panied by the Profs. of the department,
Messrs. Ihlseng and Stoek.
Prof. of mechanical engineering, Louis E.
Reber, has taken the senior members of the
departments of mechanical and electrical en-
gineering to Pittsburg on a week's observa-
tion trip among the great manufacturing
plants of that hive of industry.

A large black bear was seen on the mount-
ain near town the other day, and several par-
ties are out after it. They got several shots
at it, but failed to bring it down.
Messrs. Chaney and Thompson, of Port Ma-

Your Pine Grove correspondent in making
mention last week of the death of Mrs. Re-
becca Heberling, made a mistake when he
said she had formerly been married to Jacob
Hicks. Her first husband was John W.
Hicks, a son of Abram Hicks.
Two pieces of land adjoining the town sold
at a high figure, on the 25th of last month.
They were the Daniel's lots. One, containing
atrifle over two acres, was knocked down to
Martin Dennings for $427.50, the other piece
contained 88 rods and was bought by Benner
W. Wilson at $195.00. The buildings on them
were of no account.
The school tax in this township is 5 mills
and still the township is in debt one thousand
dollars, and no voter except the school board
can explain why it is. The school meetings
are all held behind closed doors, and if
you ask a member of the board
anything, he looks wise and as much
as says: you are only a tax payer, you
don’t need to know. If ever there was a party
in power that needed a general cleaning out,
it is the Republican party of this township,
and if the writer is not very much mistaken
it is coming, as you can distinctly hear the
muttering of Republicans who have never wav-
ered in the support that they gave the ticket,
our road tax is 7 mills, and not $5 worth of work
has been done in this end of the township.

Why your friend is better
dressed. You pay more for
your clothes than he, but they
never fit you so well—they nev-

the style, the chic, the certain
something, that shows clothes
are just what they should be.
Do you know that your friend
is a customer of ours? Ask
him, you will be sure to find
such is the case. We not only
sell you different clothes, better
clothes, but we also charge you
less than others.
