Post.—Saturday evening will be a memor-
able one in the history of Gregg post, No.
95, G. A. R., of this place. Business
and social sessions were held in the post
rooms that night and those who were there
had every reason to enjoy both.
The bysiness end of the meeting was to
install the new officers for 1897, a list of
whom have already been published in this
paper. Retiring commander F. Peebles
Green was in the chair, but soon made way
for commander Joseph Green, of the Geo.
L. Potter post at Milesburg, who was in-
stalling officer.
as possible and at its conclusion the camp
fire was lighted. S. B. Miller was master
of ceremonies and handled things in a most
enjoyable manner. The High school choir
sang patriotic airs, speeches were made by
F. Peebles Green, commander David Bart-
ley, Clement Dale Esq., D. F. Fortney
Esq., Francis Speer, W. C. Young, of Pine
Grove Mills; Mr: Oliver, of Philadel-
phia ; S. H. Williams, W. H. Musser and
Joseph Green, comrade Swires, of Miles-
burg, told a few droll stories and sang a song
and the post poet, W. T. Fitzgerald, read
an original poem entitled : ‘“When we
marched down to Dixie land some thirty
years ago.”’
—In frightful squalor Mrs. Oscar An-
drews, a former Centre county girl, slowly
starved to the death that released her from
further misery last Saturday afternoon.
She was the daughter of Benjamin Bennet,
of Unionville, the man familiarly known
in Bellefonte as ‘‘Huckleberry’’ Bennet,
and lived in Altoona, with a husband who
seems to have been worse than a brute.
The story of her sad death is about as fol-
About noon Saturday chief of police
Foust was notified that a woman named
Mrs. Andrews was lyingsick in a wretched
hovel, on Fourth street, near Eighth avenue,
with no one to care for her. Sergeant
Peters was detailed to investigate the case,
and upon his arrival at the house found a
a state of affairs that was truly appalling.
Lying on a rude couch on the upper
floor of the hut he found the woman dying
She was Mrs. Margie Andrews, wife of
Oscar Andrews, an individual who is not
supposed to have more than ordinary intel -
ligenece. The room where the woman lay
was indescribably filthy and almost bare of
furniture. The dying woman was clad in
the thinnest and dirtiest clothing, while a
few ragged comforts were all that protected
her from the chilling blasts that whistled
through the broken windows.
The physician who was called, discovered
that her illness was due to child birth
which occurred several weeks ago. Since
that event she had no attention except
what little aid could be rendered by an
aged colored man, who lived with Andrews.
The husband was often absent for days,
selling pinchbeck jewelry, and earning his
own meager livelihood. Dr. Smith pre-
scribed what remedies he could, but
in spite of the delayed medical aid, she
died in misery at 3 o’clock Saturday after-
Coroner McCartney was notified, and up-
on investigation, discovered that the neigh-
bors had frequently urged Andrews to send
his wife to the hospital or to the almshouse,
but he always stubbornly refused. Mrs. |
Andrews’s father, Benjamin Bennet, of
Unionville, went up to see her, and insisted
that she be better cared for, but Andrews,
as usual, turned a deaf ear to his entreaties.
According to Andrew’s statement he was
married to the woman ten years ago. Sev-
en children were born to them, all of whom
are dead. Her maiden name was Margie
E. Bennet and she was 29 years of age.
An examination of the body after death
showed several ugly bruises on the left side,
such as would result from kicks.
The Altoona Tribune says that coroner
McCartney has made a thorough investiga-
tion of ‘the circumstances leading to the
death in that city of Mrs. Oscar Andrews,
and stated last evening that her death was
nothing but slow murder. The woman
had been ill for some time and Dr. Smith,
who was called in about Thanksgiving,
said she was suffering with Bright's dis-
ease at that time far advanced. This, how-
ever, does not explain the large and dis-
colored spot which appears on the abdomen
of the deceased. A physician who looked
at the body yesterday informed the coroner
that the discoloration was undoubtedly due
to a kick or a blow.

New York's famous thoroughfare, Broadway,
has been the scene of some wonderful events.
But the one scene which still stands as the most
remarkable, in point of enthusiasm, is Louis Kos-
suth’s famous ride up Broadway, in 1851. Kos-
suth had already seen and passed through a
crowd of 100,000 people in his triumphal ride up
the great thoroughfare. The culminating mo-
ment, however, occurred when the great Hungar-
ian patriot reached the corner of Broadway and
Ann street. The sight that burst upon him stag-
gered him for the moment. In the open square
directly before him was massed together a quar-
ter of a million of people, and when this vast con-
course broke into a united cheer Kossuth was
fairly bewildered. No man saw this great event
so well and advantageously as did Parke Godwin,
the veteran New York editor and Kossuth’s clos-
est friend in America. Mr. Godwin was with
Kossuth, and for the first time he will now tell
the story of the marvelous event in the February
Ladies’ Home Journal. The actual scene at Ann
street wil! also be shown in a picture by De Thul-
strup, showing Kossuth in his carriage as the
great scene bursts upon him.
The January Forum opens with an extremely
interesting study of “Pope Leo XIII” by the
Vicomte E. Melchior de Vogue, who traces brief-
ly, but with perfect freedom, the successive de-
velopments of this lofty genius, and the corre-
sponding increase in the prestige aud moral
power of the Papacy throughout the world. The
Vicomte de Vogue's frequent visits to the Vati-
can, and the high esteem in which he is held by
the Pope, lend unusual weight to his article. Mr.
0. D. Ashley, President of the Wabash Railroad,
discusses the tariff question from the point of
| view of a business man; advocates “middle
tend to hold services in their remodeled |
ground’ between the two extremes of policy ; and
suggests the appointment of a bi-partisan commit-
tee to collect evidence on the subject, with a view
to reporting such changes as may in its opinion
be advantageous to the industrial interests of the
country. Dr. J. M. Rice continues his valuable
series of articles on The Problem of Elementary
Education, with a paper on “The Essentials in
Elementary Education.” Herr Alexander Mosz-
kowski, the eminent German Musical critic, con-
tributes a brilliant paper on some “Modern Com-
posers in the light of Contemporary Criticism’ —
Wagner, Rubinstein and Brahms. “The Wanton
Destruction of American Property in Cuba,”
brings out a vigorous protest from Mr. Fernando
A. Yznaga, who, after showing that this destruc-
tion is unnecessary, that it has already cost
American citizens more than $50,000,000, advo-
cates interference by the United States Govern-
ment and the annexation of Cuba by purchase.
Hon. Alonzo B. Cornell, ex-Governor, of New
York, contributes a very timely article on the
paralyzing effect upon business of Presidential
elections, suggesting as aremedy that the Presi-
dential term be !lengthened to 6 years, and the
Congressional term to 3 years. He recommends
that ex-Presidents be elected members of the
Senate. Mr. J. Gennadius contributes an ex-
tremely interesting paper on the work of the
American School of Archwmology in Greece, de-
scribi ng the discovery of an ancient Greek thea-
tre at Thorikos.

Mrs. Julia Taft Bayne has written for the Feb-
ruary St Nicholas an article about “Willie and
Tad Lincoln.” While the president's sons were
living in the White House, Mrs. Bayne's brother
was their most intimates playmate, and 8e her-
self, then a young girl, saw much of them. Mrs.
Bayne describes the pranks of the Lincoln boys,
and tells of a minstrel show that was given in the
White house. /
Seven general officers in the civil war will con-
tribute toa discussion in the February Century
of the paper by Duncan Rose, “Why the Confed-
eracy Failed,” published in a recent number of
this magazine. The writers are Gens. S. D. Lee»
Joseph Wheeler, E. P. Alexander, and E. M. Law
of the confederate army, and Gens. Don Carlos
Buell, 0." 0. Howard, and Jacob D. Cox, of the
Union Army.
Beginning with the February issue, which is
the initial number of Vol. XIV,, the Monthly II.
lustrator Publishing Co., announce some import-
ant changes in their popular magazine.
It will appear in a new dress, but under the old
favorite title of Home and Country, a name which
stands forall that is dearest and best in the hearts
of the American people, It isthe firm belief of
the publishers that progressive ideas will always
find favor in the eyes ot the public, and that a
really good article will find a ready sale. In ac-
cordance with these views the magazine will be
enlarged one-third above its present size, and new
departments added, which will endeavor to cover
as fully as possible all the topics of interest of the
day, aided and embellished by the finest illustra-
tions it is possible to produce.
First-class fiction, both in serials and short
stories, will be a prominent feature, and contribu-
tions in these lines will find a ready market in
the columns of Home and Country. .
Watch for the February number. You will like
it. If your newsdealer does not have it write us
for sample copy, and we think you will want to
subscribe. The price is 10 cents per copy, or
£1.00 per year .

The most important feature of the January
magazine number of The Outlook is the appear- |’
ance of the initial chapters of Mr. Justin Mec-
Carthy's “Story of Gladstone's Life.” Mr. Me-
Carthy’s fame as a novelist, biographer, historian,
parliamentarian and Irish leader makes whatever
he writes of peculiar interest. He hasfound no
more congenial employment than in biographical
work: In the opening chapters of this life we
find the same pleasant conversational style which
distinguished “A History of Our Own Times.”
There is a special value to this biography over
most—if its continuation fulfills the promise of
these first chapters—namely, in giving to us por-
traiture rather than comment, personality rather
than politics. Nevertheless we are sure that the
politics must receive due appreciation from one
who has had such just reason to be grateful for
Mr. Gladstone's espousal of the Irish cause,
There is an interesting combination in fall that
Mr. McCarthy writes, of the cool-headed nglish-
man with the acute Celt, of sturdiness and humor,
of strength and agility. The opening chapters of
this “Life” describe the Gladstone family, their
home at Liverpool, youug William's school and
college days at Eton and Oxford, his thought of
becoming a clergyman, his triends and contem-
poraries, his first parliament and his early ap-
pearance in public life. The value ofthe text is
doubled by reascn of the illustrations. These are
of peculiar interest, since they are in large part
from photographs taken at Hawarden by special
permission of Mr. Gladstone. Among them is a
notable portrait of Mr. Gladstone at the age of
twenty-eight. A reproduction from this picture
was made many years ago, but the engravings
from it entirely ‘lost the force of the original.
The present illustration, however, shows the
oung statesman exactly as he SDpenry in Brad-
ey’s painting. We are told that the portrait was
as faithful as the picture is beautiful. £3.00 a
