Capt. John A. Hunter enjoyed commence-
ment at State College. ! .
Our town is now clean with a new layer of
One day recently, Dr. Thompson's horse
run away out at Scotia, and played havoc
wilh his new buggy.
e Scotia band paid our town a visit, re-
cently, and gave us some fine music with
their new gold-mounted horns.
If the people of this town keep on burning
and tearing down their buildings, the once
prosperous town will soon be annihilated
from the face of the earth.
Next Sunday will be children’s day in the
M. E. church, in this place. Services will
commence at 7 o'clock p, m., and as this ap-
pointment excels any other appointment on
the circuit, it will be worth attending.
Did it ever occur to the readers of the
WATCHMAN how many very old people have
lived and been buried in Halfmoon valley,
between Waddle's and Centre Line, which
clearly demonstrates that it must be a very
Gradually the ranks of the G. A. R., ot
Stormstown, are growing less. Not many
days ago, from good authority we heard that
of the the 22 old soldiers buried in the Mt.
Pleasant grave yard, in Taylor township,
from this Post 498. 8 of them rest in un-
marked graves. Will the commissioners rise
and explain please why thisis? There was
a great fuss made, a couple of years ago,
when the Democratic board failed to mark
the soldier's graves and we know that sev-
eral Democratic soldiers voted for the present
Republican commissioners just on that ac-
count. What they think of their action
now the public has not found out.
The handsome portico. commenced a week
ago in front of the M. E. parsonage in our
village, is completed, and is a decided im-
J. M. Alters, one of our thorough me-
chanics, has just completed a handsome |
fence surrounding the property on the
pike recently purchased by Dr. F. A.
Van Valzah. The fencing is as straight as an
arrow and very substantially built. Mr.
Alters evidently understands his business. .
At last the postmastership of our village is

received the appointment on Wednesday last.
Of course there was very considerable squab-
bling and sharp maneuvering to obtain the |
office and naturally disappointments have |
followed. But Mr. Long had the advantage
from the start, and held it in defiance of all
plans and combinations, and since the ap-
pointment has been made and the contest |
ended we all cheerfully acquiescein the in- |
evitable. Mr. Long discharged the same
duties under the Harrison administration in
a very satisfactory manner, and we are all
satisfied that he will do so again, Mr. Pealer
The junior base ball club of our village had
an indifferent contest with the Centre Hall
team, on Friday last. The juniors complain
very bitterly of the discourteous treatment
they received from the Centre Hall team.
The juniors desired tossing the ball in the
diamond previous to the call of game, simply
to obtain a little insight of the grounds, a
privilege always accorded a rival team, but
this privilege was positively refused. At the
end of the seventeenth inning it being late,
the juniors wished to retire or have some
provisions made for supper, but the Centre
Hall team would not listen to their retiring
and supper they declined to furnish. Finally
the juniors concluded to play the two remain-
ing innings and obtain a very late meal at
home. The score stood 23 to 29 in favor of
Spring Mills. Of course with ill humor and
unpleasant feelings on both sides, the num-
ber of runs indicate the character of the
Pine Grove Mention.
The new cemetery fence, and the Academy
fence are being improved with a coat of paint.

W. W. Boob, the wheel manufacturer, is
putting new machinery into his shops con-
tinually. His latest improvements are ma-
chines to manufacture spokes, which do the
work from the butt to finish, and if the
genius had invented it he would add an ap-
pliance to make the butt. This last inven-
tion, however, is not needed at present, as
there are thousands of the choicest second
growth oaks and a good supply of hickory to
be had in Central Pennsylvania. Mr. Boob
depends largely upon foreign’ trade for his
product of spokes and wheels, and has ship-
ped his manufactures to every foreign coun-
try of note.. During last week several con-
signments of large orders were shipped to
London. The continual growth of his busi-
ness necessitates the enlargement of his fac-
tory. His export department and salesroom
are located at 11 Broadway, New York City.

Yes! the old Rockville hill has had

THE GRANGE MEETING.—Last Saturday
afternoon was largely attended and very in-
structive. Mrs. Henry Meyer read a able
essay on memory, which so captivated the
hearers that the order passed a motion to
have it published. Bruce Moyer, of

capital which opened up an interesting dis-
cussion, which was taken part in by
Noah Corman and Jos. K. Moyer.
Prof. Henry A. Detwiler read a fine essay,
giving a comparison between the English and
American governments, a subject of which
he is very fond. The grange has appointed
him to give a series of. articlés on this sub-
ject treated from a comparative standpoint.
Mr. Detwiler was highly complimented on
his excellent and instructive paper which
was supplemented by a short address on the
history of the human government by H. E.
Bierly. The program for next time will be
another one of Mr. Detwiler’s papers, and an
essay on the history, explanation and abuses
of trusts and monopolies by Jos. K. Moyer.
