A NEW RAILROAD FOR BELLEFONTE |
—In an issue, several weeks ago, the
WaTcEMAN hinted at a railroad enter-
prise that came to light Tuesday when
a charter was granted for the new Belle-
fonte and Clearfield railroad. The capi-
tal of the new corporation is placed at
$1,100,000 and the following men were
the incorporators appearing on the
charter : President, Chas. W. Wilhelm,
of Reading ; directors, James Harris,
D. M. Butts, Henry Brockerhoff, L. T.
Munson and John J. Walsh, all of Belle-
fonte ; and A. V. Hoyt, of Philipsburg,
The new line will extend from a point
near Milesburg to the town of Clearfield
and will be fifty-five miles long. The
exact route will not be known until lat-
er but it is probable that the line will
touch Philipsburg. Surveyors are at
work now and it will not be very long
until we can give our readers something
' more definite about the outcome of this |
‘move. Suffice it to say that it is only
"another step in what may eventually
; become a through system of railroads
from east to west.
THROWN FROM A Bucay. — While
returning from bible class, last Thurs-
dug night, Sadie, Annie and Hattie
Hastings, daughters of Mr. George
Hastings, of Buffalo Run, met with an
accident that might have resulted far
more seriously than it did.
The girls had just left the meeting
house in their buggy when a runaway
team crashed into them from the rear.
Their buggy was upset and the force of
the collision threw their horse clear over
a fence into the field at the road-side.
The girls were all more or less bruised
bat suffered no serious injuries. Not
80, however, with the young woman
who was in the wagon being dragged
along at break-neck speed by the run-
away horses. She was thrown out at
the foot of the hill and hurt so badly
that she is now under a physician’s care.
. Her name is Cook and she is employ-
ed by the family of Mr. Wm. Tressler,
at Fillmore. She met with her mishap
through not heeding Mr. Tressler’s ad-
vice to her to not attempt to unhitch
his team. She had left the meeting
house and after untying the horses un-
dertook to turn them around to wait for
the family to go home, when they be-
came frightened and ran away with her,
with the above results.
RuNy DowN BY A TrAIN.—What
might have been a fatal accident oc-
curred hero yesterday morning when
old Jimmy Gallagher, of Howard, was
run down by the Snow Shoe train on
the P. R. R.
The accident happened in this way.
Gallagher is employed at Morris’ “Pike
lime kilns and about nine o'clock, yes-
terday morning, he took the water pail
to go after water for the men. He went
across the long trestle over Spring
creek and reached the Pennsylvania
tracks where he crossed the little trestle
that spans Buffalo Run, just near the
round house. After filling his pail
with water at the little spring at the
mouth of the run he started back, all
the while watching the Bellefonte Cen-
tral passenger train that was coming up
from the junction and utterly heedless
of the Snow Shoe train. .
The old man was hurrying to get off
the bridge before the Central train got
up to bim, but he did not ses the oiher
that was fast overtaking him. * He was
struck by the pilot, just as he was about
to step off the trestle, and knocked down
on the abutments. The train was stop-
ped and the injured man was picked up
and brought up to the station where Dr.
Harris examined him to find one rib
broken and a painful abrasion of the
He was taken to the Bush House
where he became unconscious and it is
feared cannot recover. He suffered a
hemorrhage of the brain last evening
that indicates that he cannot live longer
than to-day. He is 59 years old, isa
resident of Howard and was a single
man. His brother was killed at tke
same kilns some time ago.
Put Ur THEIR CART AND HARNESS
As A FINE.—On Monday a young man
named Jackson came down from the
vicinity of Lemont and after getting a
brother, who lives out on Half Moon
hill, in with him, the pair started to
race their old horse around the streets
at a terrific pace. It was a shame the
way they abused their poor old horse
and no one who saw them would have
been sorry had the dilapidated old nag
upset the gig and run away from its
drunken drivers. ;
Officer Gares “pinched’’ them, after
he thought they had gone far enough,
and both were locked up while the horse
was taken to the livery stable and cared
for. About 9 o'clock in the evening
they were offered release on the payment
of $5 fine, but as neither one of them
could raise that much velvet they de-!
cided to put the cart and harness up.
This was done and the country Jackson !
got astride his horse and started for |
home, but he didn’t get out of town !
until away in the morning hours. We'll |
bet that if he had very far to ride on |
that nag he will need about 60 inch
trousers hereafter. |

—An exchange remarks that thé
present drought might possibly have
some effect on the growth of the Canada
thistle. The Canada thistle runs deep
roots and needs deep-down moisture to
keep it growing. The present drought |
has gone deep into the earth which de-
prives the thistle root of its nourish-
ment, thus killing some and checking
the growth of others, and with a little
vigorous fighting on the part of the
farmers much could be done now to
destroy this greatest of all our weed
pests. The drought may have been a
good thing in this while it has caused
much suffering for want of water.

THE LATE JOHN ALEXANDER
Wooncock.—A gradual decline, that
months ago, ended in the death of Rev.
John Alexander Woodcock, at his
home, on Linu street, this place, about
10 o’clock Wednesday morning. His
disease bad baffled the skill of most ex-
pert physicians from its very incipiency
and even now it is only conjecture to re-
port that it was a malignant affection
of the stomach. Through all the long
period of his decline he maintained a re-
markable spirit of cheerfulness that
buoyed the hope of his ultimate re-
covery even unto the morning of his
Decessed was born in Wells valley,
Fulton county, June 13th, 1841. Hav-
ing spent the early days of his life about
the parental home he entered Dickin-
son Seminary, at Williamsport, at the
age of 22 and three years later, in 1866,
he entered the ministry of the
Methodist church. During his con-
nection with the conference he served
at Woodbury, Bellwood, Green
Castle, Mifllinburg, Watsontown,
‘Williamsport, Osceola Mills, Miles-
burg and Mechanicsburg, in addi-
tion to havingsupplied various charges,
among them having been Bellefonte at
the time the Methodist church was
without a minister, owing to the ap-
pointment of Rev. Foster to the presiding
eldership. His last work was done in
1888, when a physical collapse compelled
his withdrawal from the ministry. Af-
ter living at Bedford for a year he re-
moved to this place and built the home
in which he died. The later years of
his life was spent as an insurance solic-
itor and it is said of him that he was
ono of the most reputable men who
have ever done business in this commu-
nity. As the representative of the
New York Mutual, the Northwestern
and other corporations his success and
fidelity was best seen in the exceptional
work he accomplished.
In 1870 Rev. Woodcock married An-
na Forbes, of Chambersburg. She,
with their two sons, Lee and Jay, sur-
He was a man whose nobility of pur-
pose and purity of life will be sweetest
comfort to the bereaved ones. He
was a good man. Goed in every
sense of the term, which implies
utter disavowal of ideas bordering
on fanaticism. And the fruits of
his Christian character and ministry are
living monuments to his memory.

house this afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev.
W. A. Houck, of Hazeleton, will offi-

Christian Dale Jr, of Dale's Mills, near
Pleasant Gap, died early last Sunday
morning, the result of a protracted ill-
ness with tuberculosis of the throat. , .
Deceased was born Oct. 6th, 1885,
and spent most of his early life on his
father’s farm, teaching district school

IN STRAITS FOR A JOB.—There is no
disguising the fact that many people
have had a hard time to make ends
meet during the past two years and it is
really sinful to make sport of honest
efforts to obtain work, but while loung-
ing around the lobby of one of our large
hotels, the other day, a WATCHMAN re-
porter heard of one of the most heroic
efforts on tho pert of 8 young organist.
The disciple-of Orpheus, imagining
himself particularly hard up and in no
way to pay several trifling bills long
over-due, made a proposition to a young
tobaccouist that if the latter would se-
cure him a ‘‘wedding job” he, the or-
ganist, would forthwith pay for a box
of cigars of which not even the smoke
was longer in evidence.
Now as it happened the tobacconist
bad already besought himself a fair
maid, who bad given her ccnsent to
share the profits of the business, and, ,
though it is not known whether he fear- |
ed losing the amount of the organist’s |
bill, he did urge a setting forward of the
wedding day. With all the minor de-
tails arranged ho hunted up the kay
board manipulator and told kim of a

served with so much distinction during
the entire war that he was mustered out
as a captain in July of ’65.
Upon his return from the war he
went back to farming and in connee-
tion with that work he started the mill-
ing business which afterwards gave the
property the name of Dale’s Mills. The
homes of the Dales at that place are
pretty, thrifty looking properties that
bespeak the energy of their owners.
In 1867 Mr. Dale married Miss
Catharine Musser, of Ferguson township,
a sister of W. H. Musser, of this place.
Mrs. Dale died about five years ago.
He was secretary of the Centre county

years, held various posts of honor in the

Last Sunday morning all that was
mortal of Elmira J. Butler, of Jackson-
ville, took on immortality and joined
the innumerable throng in the silent
halls of death.
Her illness was not of long duration,
in truth it might be said that she died
suddenly, for that morning she arose, as
usual, and did not complain until several
hours later when she noticed a peculiar
feeling in the region of her heart. She
died almost immediately.
Deceased was the wife of John Butler,
a8 highly respected resident of Marion
township, and was about forty-eight
years old. Besides her husband she
leaves six children to mourn her sudden
demise. They are Samuel W., Ada E.,
Amelia, Franklin P., Luther and J.

for train jumping and held until the
warrant for. burglary could be sent up

with any of the regular institute exer-
