AN UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENT. -— Every-
thing was going as nicely as could be at the
Edison electric illuminating company’s
plant and the work of setting up the tem-
porary dynamos and engines was going on
without a hitch when an accident occurred
that will result in the confinement of one of
the General Electric Co's. experts for about |
H. P. Loring was sent here from Phil-
adelphia to superintend the work of setting
up the dynamos and everything was being
pushed along successfully, the dynamos
were in place andall that remained to be
done was to block them down onto the
tracks. This was being done as hurriedly
as possible in order to get the lights on for
Saturday night, but in the haste there was
a single wrong movement and the 4,3001h
dynamo toppled over onto Mr. Loring.
Fortunately for him he was in a position
where nothing but his legs were caught and
fered a compound fracture of the left leg
below the knee. The man was carried to
the Bush house, where the fracture was
reduced by doctors Harris and Dobbins and
the patient is resting as well as could be
The courage of the injured man was seen
when he coolly directed the workmen how
to take the fallen dynamo off of him. You
would not have imagined him to be in-
jured at all, for in a voice as steady as it
had heen while the work was in progress
he told the men how to make every move.
The rapid work of the company in get-
ting lights on again, within four nights
after their plant and equipment had been
totally destroyed, was wonderful and the
officers and men are receiving congratula-
tions on all sides.
KILLED IN A RUNAWAY ACCIDENT
NEAR LoGANTON.—Last Thursday after-
noon, Mrs. George Struble and son, who
live about three miles above Loganton,
Clinton county, were driving to that place
in a buggy. When in the vicinity of
Kleckner’s a bolt that held one side of the
shafts to the axle broke, leaving the shafts
fall on the horse’s heels. It frightened and
started on a mad gallop down the road. Mrs.
Struble made frantic efforts to stop the
animal, but was unable to do so, and when
the vehicle made a sudden lunge to the
side she and her boy were thrown out. In
falling the side of Mrs. Struble’s face canre
in contact with a stone. The flesh from
the top of the right side of the head down
to near the mouth and over back of the ear
was badly torn. The eyelid was severed
and eyeball injured. She was also badly
bruised by the hind wheel of the buggy
running over her body. Her son received
an ugly gash in the head.
Several men, who witnessed the accident,
ran to the assistance of the injured parties,
and carried Mrs. Struble into a shed and
afterwards into the residence of Mr.
Kleckner. Dr. Houtz was summoned and
found the lady conscious, although her face
was terribly mutilated. Forty stitches
were required to bring the pieces of severed
flesh together. In the afternoon both the
mother and the son were conveyed to their
home. : :
The woman's injuries proved more serious
than they were at first supposed to be. She
was conscious only a few minutes while the
doctor was sewing up her wounds, then
lapsed into unconsciousness and never re-
vived until death relieved her of her terri-
ble suffering on Friday afternoon.
Mrs. Struble is survived by a husband
and ten children. She was 45 years old
and was buried Sunday afternoon. Her
son, who was hurt in the accident, is able
to be around again.
Co. B. WiLL BE LEFT BEHIND. — In
selecting the provisional brigade that will
represent Pennsylvania in the great Grant
parade in New York, on the 27th, the
Crack 5th Reg. of the 2nd Brig., has been
left out and our own Company B, will have
to stay at home and shine up their brass

the unveiling of the Grant monument, con-
sists of the following organizations : The

The first regiment is the only organization
taken from the first brigade. The second
brigade furnish the fourteenth, sixteenth
and eighteenth regiments and battery B,
and’ the ninth and thirteenth regiments
and the Governor’s troop come from the
third brigade. General Gobin, who com-
mands the third brigade, has been detailed
to command the provisional brigade at
New York. :
THE OPENING OF THE TROUT SEASON. —
Yesterday was a very disagreeable one for
the opening of the trout fishing season, yet
hundreds of fishermen, equipped all the
way from the $10 rod, most improved tack-
le, basket and rubber clothing, down to
the urchin and the 25ct pole who usually
gets the ‘fish, were along the banks of
Spring creek, Logan’s branch, Buffalo run,
and even on streams miles away, by day
The rain that had fallen all Wednesday
night and yesterday morning put the water
in splendid condition. It was neither too
high, too cold, nor too muddy, in fact it has
been many years since the conditions were
so favorable for catching fish, yet no big
catches were reported.
Nearly everybody had a few nice ones,
vet there wasn’t that parade of big fish
that is usually seen about the hotels on the
first day of the season.

——The dead body of Lewis Sandusky,
of Jersey Shore, was found lying along the
rail-road tracks, near Lewistown a few days
ago. He had left his wife and two chil-
dren to hunt work and before going told a
friend that if he did not find it he would
cornmit suicide. It is supposed that he
did it. ’
——The same shoe factory enterprise
from Williamsport that was rejected, sever- |
al weeks ago, by the Bellefonte board of
trade, is being pushed by T yrong capitalists
and will likely be a go in that place. At
the first meeting, up there, they subscribed
$6,200 of the necessary $15,000. A build-
ing committee has been appointed and they
expect to have it in operation in short
order. They have $12.000 raised now.
——The Pennsylvania society of colonial
dames of America will send an exhibit of
colonial relics for the Pennsylvania build-
ing at the Tennessee exhibition, May 1st
to November 1st. It is not the desire of
the society to send large pieces of any
sort, merely trinkets of undisputed colonial
date. All will be properly cared for and
returned. Information can be had by ad-
dressing Mrs. Roland G. Curtin, 22 S. 18th
Supt. A. G. Palmer, of the Beech
Creek railroad, was married in a way that
proves to the world that he thinks a very
great deal of railroads and railroading. On
Wednesday last he and Miss Mary Baer
were married in his private car while the
train to which it was attached was flying
between Jersey Shore Junction and New-
berry. The ceremony was performed by
Rev. P. S. Kohler, a Presbyterian minis-
ter of Jersey Shore, and only the bride's
brother and his wife witnessed the cere-

as his home and giving his name as Wil-
liam Rodgers, was happily seated on the
bumpers of a coal train that was speeding
along the Bald Eagle valley, last Thursday
morning, when, without a moment’s warn-
ing, the train parted at the very place he
was seated and he was thrown onto the
rails. Fortunately for him he had time to
throw himself off of the track before the fol-
lowing string of cars ran upon him and he
escaped with a fracture of the left arm and
right leg. He was taken to the Altoona
hospital for treatment. The accident oc-
curred near Milesburg.
— — After July first the post-office de.
partment will permit private parties and
business companies to print their own pos-
tal or mail cards, though they will be re-
quired to purchase lct stamps to stick on
them. Under the present ruling private
mail cards, that is cards like postals, print-
ed with an advertisement on the stamp
side and the obverse left clean for writing,
have required a 2ct stamp, while one all
printed requires only lect. The peculiarity
of this arrangement is better appreciated
when it is known that the government
furnishes a postal card, stamped, for lect,
yet doesn’t allow people to furnish their
own card and pay lect for sending it be-
——Fitz and Webster's ‘‘Breezy Time’
played to fair business at Garman’s, last’
Saturday night, and the company has heen
taking a week off here. They never play
during Holy week. They are a clever lot
of people on the stage and off and gave one
of the best light entertainments ever put
on at Garman’s. It is seldom that you see
a company in which every member can do
a good specialty ; they did it, and from
the most noisome kind of laughter Fitz and
Wehster quieted the house, untila pin’s
fall could have been heard in any part of
it, with their exquisite cornet duet, ‘“The
Prettiest Girl.” Some of the people went
trout fishing yesterday morning, with the
opening of the season, but, like Robert
Downing of ‘‘Gladiator’’ fame, stage meth-
ods for catching fish don’t go, when angle
worms instead of flies are used.
——At a meeting of the Mattern family
reunion association executive committee,
held in Tyrone, last Thursday afternoon,
committees were appointed for the next
annual reunion and picnic and the time for
holding it was changed from June 10th to
June 24th, next. The reunion will be held
at Warriorsmark and will be made a great
event. The Mattern family is a very old and
large oue in this county. The original one
came to this country in 1726 and this will be
the one hundred and seventy-first anniversa-
ry of his arrival. The Centre county repre-
sentatives holding office in the association
are : Executive committee, John W. Mat-
tern and Miles G. Gray, of Philipsburg ;
Dr. Frank Mattern, of Milesburg ; Collins
Mattern and Samuel T. Gray, of Storms-
town. Invitation committee, John W.
Mattern, Philipsburg. Transportation and
finance, Collins Mattern, of Stormstown.

community, where so many of the friends
of his child-hood live, to hear that Capt.
James A. Leyden, Inf. U. S. A., was dead,
“yet that was the sad news that was sent
here from Ft. Sheridan, near Chicago, last
Saturday. He had died that afternoon at
his post home after only a few days illness
with pneumonia. In fact only the day be-
fore his death Telatives at State College re-
ceived a letter in which it was announced
that ‘‘for the first time in his life’”” he was
confined to bed with what the physicians
thought to be a slight attack of pleurisy.
Burial was made at the Fort, on Tues-
day afternoon, the customary services for
regular army officers having heen observed.
At first it was thought that the bod y
would be brought here for interment in the
family lot and Edward Leyden, of Beech
Creek, came up and had made partial ar-
rangements to that end, but the plans to
bury him at the Fort, temporarily, at least,
were carried out. =

den and his mother was Louise Alexander

trict. He graduated in 1879, and was im-

the White River insurrection among the
Indians, during which the Meeker family

engineer of his regiment and served a num-
ber of special appointments, among which

the cadets at State College, and a year and
a half on ex-Gov. Beaver’s staff. While on
the Governor's staff he constructed the rifle
range at Ms. Gretna. For five years he

In 1888, after a year spent in travel in
Europe, he returned to his post at Ft.

old and leaves a husband and eight chil-

member of the Methodist church for years.

——Wm. Irvin, an employe of the Mill
Hall axe factory, died with consumption
last Thursday afternoon. He had been ill

A LeENTEN WEDDING — Miss Nan-
nie M. Hunter, - youngest daughter of
the late Hon. Benjamin F. Hunter, was
married to Andrew M. Reeser, of Snow
Shoe, on Wednesday. The ceremony was
performed at the Hunter homestead, near
Fillmore, and only the immediate relatives
of the young folks were there. Rev. D. L.
Jones, of the Presbyterian church, officiated.
After the nuptials a splendid wedding
supper was served and Mr. and Mrs. Reeser
came to this place, where they took an
evening train for a short wedding tour.
The bride is a young woman of amiable
disposition, thoroughly trained in the duties
of a good housewife and of refined enough
manners to grace any function. Her hus-
band is a prosperous young merchant of
Snow Shoe and the course of their love
should surely run smooth, since they were
raised on adjoining fatms and the friend-
ship of their childhood grew to the love
that has made them one.
THEIR DEBUT A Success.—The Imper-
ial mandolin and guitar club, of Bellefonte,
gave a very enjoyable concert, at Eagle-
ville, ou last Monday evening, to a good
sized house. All the difficult numbers on
the program were played most excellently.
Mr. Brown’s flute solo, with guitar accom-
paniment, was undoubtedly the finest
thing of the kind heard there. Mre Taylor
captivated his hearers by his skillful ma-
nipulation of the cornet, while Mr. Culvey-
house made a decided hit with his new
combination instrument, the banjuar.
Mr. Gerhart’s songs were also very much
appreciated, if one may judge from the
amount of applause received. One of his
songs entitled, ‘‘I’ve Been Hoodooed,”’
called forth a perfect storm of applause and
five encores were given to that number
alone. The instramental medley, ‘‘The
Hullabaloo,’’ was also very enthusiastically

have been sold by Clinton county growers,
this spring, with a lot yet unmarketed.
Owing to an advantageous growing season

—E. M. Huyett, of Centre Hall, and
A. M. Brown, of Penn’a. Furnace, both ex-
perienced lumbermen, have joined forces
and will operate in partnership in the fu-
ture. They expect to begin cutting on the
Fleisher tract, near Tusseyville, soon. They
expect to fake about forty-five million feet
of lumber off that tract and will employ
about forty men.
—The decision of the court of quarter
sessions of Centre county in the case of
overseers of the poor of Liberty township
vs. the overseers of the poor of Castanea,
Clinton county, was affirmed on Monday.
The decision was handed down by justice
Beaver of the superior court. The point at
issue was the legal residence of Charles and
Samuel Aikey, two pauper children of Irvin
and Edith Aikey. The result of this decis-
ion, therefore, is against the claims of
Liberty township, in this case.

only been out a few times.
—Our old friend John Ghener, of Scotia, was in
town on Saturday, and did the right thing by
enrolling his name as a regular subscriber to the
Warcuman. John says that his wife is such a stiff’
Democrat that she can’t get along without it, but
we fancy jt is not the politics, alone, that pleases
Mrs. Ghener. She likes the news and other good
features of the WarcumMax and in that she is like
many other women.
—Last week Mr. H. E. Homan, of Oak Hall, was
in town and this week his brother, Mr. B. F. Ho-
man, of the same place, had business here and had
driven down, Monday morning, before some Belle-
fonters were out of bed. Of course he had to get
up a little early to do it, but he has a habit
of getting around in the morning and that habit
has made him one of the prosperous young
farmers of that community. Mr. Homan began
reading the WarcumaN when he was only eight
years old and we have a. picture of him now, in
our mind's eye, -trudging along to school up in
Ferguson township with his 2nd reader under
one arm and the WarcumaN under the other, for
if he was reading the paper at such an early age
he must surely have toted it to school along with

Mills, on Wednesday ; night, to make a few pre-

union of the students of the old Pine Grove Acad-

There are quite a number of illustrious men who
claim that old school as their Alma Mater and
William is determined that this reunion will be
the occasion of the assembling of them all for a
good time. No better committee man could have
been selected than he will make, for nothing will
be left undone that will add to the comfort or
pleasure of those who go back to talk with fellow !
students of years ago. On the school roll are ex-
Governors, ex-congressmen, doctors of divinity, a
judge of the supreme court, prominent lawyers,
ex-common pleas judges, a millionaire and others
who have become noted in one way or another.
—The great annual settlement day in Lancaster
county is April 1st.
people from the surrounding towns and country
gather into Lancaster city to pay and collect ac-
counts, This custom has prevailed there so long
that the 1st of April has come to be a kind of gen-
eral holiday in that county. We have one man in
this section of the country who might be believ-
ed to have heen horn down there from the fact
that he seems to have this annual settlement idea |

he makes it pay because he uses good judgment
in putting out crops and marketing them.
