got sb hot that they hauled passengers over
for $1 and ga@ them dinner besides.
Harry Williams, one of S. H. Wil-

acrobatic feat, last Monday morning, that
possibly saved him from serious injury.
While engaged at painting the house of

High street, the ladder on which he was
standing slipped, precipitating him to the
ground. The fall was quite a high one and
might have injured him had he not turned
a flipper. just before he lighted, so that he
struck the ground feet foremost.
STORES.—About the coolest and most de-
liberately worked robbery that police an-
nals have any record of in Bellefonte was
that of Powers’ shoe store, on High street,
in the Arcade, early last Monday morning.
The noise of the work was heard by Mr.
and Mrs. Fritz, who occupy apartments on
‘the second floor of the building, and both
of them saw one of the robbers, while he
looked, deliberately, at them, yet, withal,
the store was opened, many shoes were
taken out, the burglars locked up the room
again and left so coolly thatno trace, what-
ever, remains by which there is any hope
of apprehending them. The story of the
robbery is about as follows :
About 1 o'clock in the morning Mrs.
Fritz was awakened by a bumping sound
that seemed to emanate from the store room
below. She called her hushand’s attention
to her suspicion that there was something
wrong, but he reassured her by explaining :
“Qh, it is only George Williams, the clerk,
putting his bicycle away,”’ as he had been
in the habit of leaving it at the store after
late night rides. Both went to sleep again
and think it wasat least an hour later when
they were aroused by a loud slamming
noise, like that caused by a falling window.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Fritz got up and went
out onto the balcony that runs along the
High street end of the building and were
surprised to see a man standing at the curb
directly in front of Powers’ store. ~Imme-
diately upon his seeing them he ran down
the street and into the main hallway of the
Arcade, but ina few moments he ran out
again and on down Water street.
From the dirty finger marks on the door
and above it it is evident that entry was
made through the transom, one of the kind
that is closed by aswinging window, hinged
at the top. Appearances indicated that
one man entered and then opened the back
store windows, through which the plunder
was passed to confederates waiting on the
out-side. The store was securely locked,
when Mr. Powers entered it Monday morn-
ing, the rear shutters were fastened on the
inside, but not as he had been accustomed
to fasten them and one of the windows was
left hoisted. This led Mr. Powers to be-
lieve that the robber left the store by means
of the transom and that it was the noise
caused by its dropping that. aroused Mr.
‘and Mrs. Fritz.
Some people think that the robbers had
a wagon in the alley, at the rear of the
building, as the rumbling sound of wheels
was heard in that quarter during the
night. And such a thing is unusual.
Mr. Powers is unable to estimate his loss,
as his stock was not in order, it having
been left, from a Saturday rush, to be put
in order on Monday morning. There were
at least thirty pair of fine shoes taken,
three special orders, and possibly more.
The safe was not touched. There was con-
siderable money in it.
—The excursions of the robber band, that
has been creating so much alarm among the
women—and we might as well include the
men, too—in this place, for some time, still
goon. And they seem justas secure in
their night-time marauding as ever they
Early last Saturday morning a domestic
in the home of Samuel Sheffer, on east Cur-
tin street, was awakened by some one pok-
ing his hand through the screen door that
opened from the room she was sleeping in
out onto a second story porch, at the rear
of the house. Earlier in the morning she
had been down stairs, trying to cure a
toothache, and at that time heard a strange
noise, but supposing it was made by a dog
she went to bed without further thought
about the matter until the above occurred.
Of course she screamed. The fuss aroused
Mr. Sheffer and the boys, who ran to her
rescue, bui the burglar escaped. He jump-
ed to the ground and fled with his com-
panions, who were evidently waiting be-
low, for several men were seen to run out
of the alley.
day a young Lock Haven man named Tim
Donnevan came up to this place to see a girl
to whom he had been paying addresses for
some time. When he called at the house
her step-father objected to his entering and
when the suitor persisted he was violently
ejected by the irate head of the house, who
happened to be the possessor of strong
blacksmith arms. .
Nothing daunted the young fellow went
down street and purchased an armful of
groceries, thinking, with these, to cajole
the father into a better impression of him.
But it had quite a contrary effect, for when
he appeared at the house the second time
that worthy sailed into him and gave him
a good trouncing, then called the police and
had him locked up.
The young lady took out a warrant, Wed-
nesday, and had him lodged in jail, for
making threats about her.

the way to some trade in this place.

——An old horseman says: ‘‘Now that
fly time is approaching those who have
charge of horses can save a great deal of
annoyance by a simple remedy. When you
go to the stable in the morning, take with
you a sponge and a pail of water. Wash
the eyes and heads of your horses, and
make them as clean as you would like
your own face to be when you appear at
the breakfast table. Did you ever notice
that flies are continually buzzing around
the heads of horses in hot weather? There
is a cause for it, and the cause is that the
heads of horses are dirty. Try the simple
remedy, and see if good results do not fol-
low.” If the operation doesn’t keep the
flies off the washing will be a good thing
for the horses at any rate.
worm is on the march again and from all
parts of the State come reports of the
damage wrought by these multi-legged lit-
tle worms. Their appearance has caused
many people from affected districts to ask
the state department of agriculture for relief
and a circular just sent out by Dr. B. H.
Warren, state zoologist, contains informa-
tion that might help some of our readers to
protect their fields and lawns.
“The fully developed worm is a little
over an inch long, of a gray or dingy black
color with black stripes and narrow lines
of white on back, and the under surface is
of a more or less greenish color ; the head
is smooth and yellowish, with two black
lines running from top to mouth. It has
sixteen legs, and those from the middle of
the body are each marked with a shining
black or blackish band.
The worms, when disturbed, curl them-
selvesiup like “cut worms,”’ and drop to
the ground. They complete their growth
in about one month, at the end of which
period they burrow into the ground an
each caterpillar changes to a brown pupa,
from which, in two or three weeks, the moth
emerges. The female moth is said to lay
about 750 minute and white eggs, and
these hatch in from eight to ten days.
The best authorities recommend the
mowing of a wide swath around the invad-
ed field, then plow a deep furrow with the
straight side toward the part to be protect-
led, and at intervals of a few feet make
holes with a crow-bar, or dig small pits in-
to which the worms entrapped in the ditch
will fall.
Where the number of worms is’ very
great and the ditch becomes partially filled

worms and providing a second line of de-
Some authorities recommend the use of
kerosene sprinkled over the worms entrap-

It is also recommended that ordinary
fence hoards be set up on edge, end to end,
across their path, and then apply a coating
of tar or kerosene to this wooden barrier,
which checks their progress. Some ento-
mologists recommend spraying of the grass
ahead of the worms with Paris green, thus
poisoning the forage on which they subsist.
For this purpose one pound of Paris green

Wuy WE Dip IT.—The following para-
graph, which appeared in a recent issue of
the Magnet and for which we thank Mr.
Bailey, the editor, needs a word of expla-
nation from the WATCHMAN. The Magnet
said :
The WATCHMAN, decidedly the handsom-
est and best edited sheet in Centre county, is
also remarkably enterprising and issued an
extra edition, Saturday morning, telling all
about the convention.
The edition referred to was the four page
issue of this paper that reached Centre
county readers on Saturday, containing a
full report of the Chicago convention, up
to 12 o'clock Friday night. The WATCH-
MAN had special telegraphic reports from
Chicago up to that hour and as it became
known that no nomination for Vice Presi-
dent would be made it went to press so
that its readers would know who was at
the head of the ticket and how the work
had been done, before the close of the
week. | -
The extra was not published as a money
making scheme. It was simply for the
benefit of regular readers. And, like our
extra and art supplement on the Ettlinger
murder, was appreciated.
These departures are not made without
considerable expense, but that is never con-
sidered when we have an opportunity to
serve our readers.

in Pittsburg, a pretty wedding was solem-
nized, when Miss Anna Hunter, of that
place, and William T. Speer were united
in marriage by the Rev. L. C. Barnes of

SPORT, PA.—The millers of the East are
making preparations for a great convention,
at Williamsport, Pa., on the 19th and 20th
of August, next, under the auspices of the
Pennsylvania millers’ state association.
Topics of vital interest to the trade are to
be discussed, and men prominent in public
life are to be on hand at the different ses-
sions. Sree on
After the adjournment of the business
meetings the millers will start on a twelve
days’ trip to Duluth, via Buffalo and the
lakes, spending several days in the great
milling and grain raising sections of the
Northwest. They will leave Buffalo on
the night of August 21st, arriving back in
Buffalo about September 3d.
Last year the millers met in Philadel-
phia and held their most successful conven-
tion, one of the largest assemblages of mil-
lers ever coming together in the United
States being present at that time ; but it is
expected that a new record will he estab-
lished at Williamsport.
The Pennsylvania millers’ state associa-
tion, it is said, is the largest organization
of its kind in the country, its membership
including flour makers and allied trades-
men from six different States. Col. Asher
Miner, Wilkes-Barre, Pa., is president of
the association, and the secretary is W. H.
Richardson, 227 S. Sixth St., Philadelphia.

WILSON—SAYLOR.—An unostentatious,
though none the less happy marriage, was
that of John H. Wilson and Miss Minnie
E. Saylor, which was solemnized at Rev.
McArdle’s house, Wednesday evening, at
8:30. The ceremony was strictly private,
no one being present but the bride’s sister,
Miss Clara, and Mr. Herbert Hull, who
were there to reassure the young couple.
Both of the young ladies looked pretty in
dainty white gowns, while the men com-
ported themselves with a dignity becoming
such an occasion.
After the ceremony the bride and groom
were driven to the bride’s home, on Val-
entine street, where a large party of friends
had been invited to meet them.
The bride is a daughter of Mr. Harlan
Saylor and is a young woman of intel-
lectual attainments, as well as a thorough
acquaintance with the duties of wife-hood.
Her husband is well-known in Bellefonte,
