Horse STOLEN NEAR FILLMORE. —
A man, probably between the age of
24 and 30 years, well dressed in dark
clothing, wearing & slouch hat, being
about 6} feet high, with blue eyes and
light brown mustache, is suspected of
having taken a dark bay horse from a
field owned by Wm. Tressler, near
Fillmore, this county, some time Mon-
The circumstances surrounding the
disappearance of the horse are some-
what unusual to the regular practices of
horse thieves and run about as follows :
On Monday afternoon Mr. Tressler
was busy husking corn in one of his
fields, when he was accosted by the
stranger, described above, who pretend-
ed to want to buy a horse to match one
already in his possession, thus having a
team with which to start farming in
i the spring. He gave his name as
farmer's son. After talking awhile Mr.
Tressler learned that the stranger had
already been in his stable looking at
the horses and was about decided on a
dark bay horse, weighing about 1200
pounds, with one white foot behind,
white speck on forehead, not shod in
front, and 3} years old that carried its
head very high.
He talked of wanting it and changed
from a direct sale to a possible trade for
the animal he was driving which Mr.
Tressler had not seen, but was told later
by his family that it was a very skinny
grey. He offered the ditference in a
trade, but Mr. Tressler didn’t pay much
attention to him, so he departed.
That night the farm horses were
turned out to pasture, as usual, but on
Tuesday morning the very bay that the
stranger had wanted was gone. As
there was no way for it to get out of the
field theft was the first thing thought of
and the mysterious man of the evening
before was the next. The natural con.
clusion was that he had taken the horse
and investigation has revealed the facl
that no such man lives in the vicinity
of Oak Hall, so why did he tell that lie
if his motives were honorable ?

GIDEON’S BAND.--Under the leader-
ship of J. Wesley Gaphart E:xq., the
new president, there is now a movement
on foot to wipe out the debt that has
hung over the Bellefonte Y. M. C. A.
and retarded its good work for years.
At a meeting held in the court house,
on Sunday afternoon, Mr. Gephart ad-
dressed several hundred young men on
the wonderful conquest of the multitudi-
nous Midianites by Gideon, with his
little band of three hundred. Then he
urged them of strong faith and suffi-
cient courage to rally around him as a
modern Gideon and make an attack on
the people of Bellefonte in order to put
the Association in shape to work as it
He found 100 young men who wera
willing to help him fight and then he
laid down a plan for them to work on.
Each one of the 100 is to collect $10
during this week, from his friends, not
taking more than $1 from any person
and not taking anything from regular
subscribers to the Associatian.
By this plan $1000 will be raised,
after which another $1000 has been
pledged, so that the Association will be
on a firmer foundation than ever before
in the twenty-six years of its operation.
The plan is an excellent one and is
meeting with marvelous success. Peo-
ple become financially interested in this
way who have never known what the
Association is and a great work for
good is expected to be the out-come of
this Gideon’s band.
Ore FounNp 200 Fr. BELOW THE
SURFACE.—On Tuesday afternoon the
well drillers at the ‘old Lamborn’ ore
bank near the Scotia crossing, on tne
Bellefonte Central R. R. were surprised
to find their sand pump running out a
steady stream of fine ore.
The well is being drilled to find wa-
ter with which to wash the ore that is
being mined at the operation that had
been idle for years and a depth of 200
feet had been reached when the sand
pump disclosed the fact that the drill
had entered a vein of excellent ore.
Mr. L. C. Eddy, McCoy's superinten-
dent, showed us a box full of the ore
taken from that great depth and reports
it as fine as any he has ever seen.

sorry we ‘‘botched’’ it and thank the
Gazette for correcting us, but as we de-
pended on our memory, entirely, having
beard Mr. Carleton recite it hers a num-
ber of years ago, the fact that it was not
quoted exactly correct does no$ appear
so remarkable as the Gazette tries to
imagine in order to let, its readers know
that its editor really is acquainted with
so great a man as Will Carleton.
——A few days ago John Shrefiler,
who teaches at what is called “the red
school house,” at the turn between this
place and Milesburg, had an experience
that must have been calculated to make
his hair a shade grayer than it was be-
fore. Having been annoyed with his
scholars taking all kinds of playthings
to school he undertook to break up the
practice by confiscating everything he
saw them have. The particular morn-
ing we have in mind one of the urchins
appeared with a paper full of dynamite
caps which he doled out to his play fel-
lows, not knowing how dangerous they
were. - As might have been expected it
was not long until one of the harmless
looking little caps found its way into
the hands of the old teacher who
promptly threw it into the stove. The
next instant there was a flash, followed
by a cloud of dust and a loud report.
The unexpected explosion came near
causing a pavic in the school, but the-
scholars were soun quieted and the
work of the day resumed. Had the
teacher gotten hold of more than one of
school might have been by this time.
