Five hundred pounds were spent on the
Mansion House by the corporation of the

pared with what Lord Mayor Faudel
Phillips, must have spent in dinners,
luncheons and receptions during the jubilee

Tiliman’s Tariff Position.
Senator TILLMAN takes a novel stand on
the tariff bill. He says that he knows he
cannot prevent its passage, and therefore
since the steal is to be perpetrated, he can’t
see why his State should not have some of
the plunder. Therefore he voted for a
duty on cotton, and also on lumber which
South Carolina produces in large quantity.
His position reduces the tariff to a ques-
tion of local advantage, and it is not
illogical, in view of the fact that in the
proceedings on this tariff bill each section
is grabbing all it can get.
The South Carolina Senator merely takes
advantage of the stealing that is forced
upon him by a Republican tariff which he
is powerless to defeat, arid he does this
without renouncing the. Democratic prin-

are under the leadership of Frank Wetzler
and Charles Rote and that well known old
musical enthusiast, Nathan Beerly, is the
director. It can scarcely be wondered at
that the organization has proven a good
one, with such people leading it.

new uniforms of the Milesburg band are
similar to those of the Coleville and when
together it looks like one great band. At

—A most frightful hail storm threatened to
knock Tyrone off the face of the earth, last
Saturday afternoon, and it was only the
size of the stones that saved the town
where lives the man who gets a wagan
load of mail every day. :
Just about three o’clock on the eventful
afternoon angry looking clouds came scur-
rying over the mountains, from the north-
west, but as the entire attention of the
town was concentrated on a game of ball
that was being played by the rival sets of
note-peelers nothing was thought of what

noon, because their mamma’s had taught
them only enough to £0 in out of the wet.
Besides this great destruction to poultry
thousands of panes of glass were broken,
trees stripped of their foilage, gardens
beaten down as flat as pan-cakes and
shingles on the roofs of many houses so
badly split up that new ones will be re-
quired. It js estimated to have caused a
loss of $40,000 in Tyrone and vicinity and
the singular part of it was that the storm
was only local. There was none north of
East Tyrone, east of Birmingham, or west
of Tipton. The storm lasted only twenty
minutes, but in that time Tyrone saw
more hail than she ever did in her life be-
fore. At some places on the streets it was
six inches deep and it is no exaggeration
when we say it had to be shoveled from the
side walks and laid in heaps in the gutters
‘until Sunday morning.
Thousands of windows were paneless
and Ed. Irvin, formerly of this, place who is
now in the hard-ware business up there,
came down, on Saturday night, and pur-
chased 125 boxes of glass at the factory
to supply Tyrone’s demand. It was a
singularly freakish storm, for while one
reperty suffered great loss the adjoining
one probably lost nothing. Among the
‘more serious losses was the almost total
destruction of W. H. Agnew’s photographic
gallery. In it were stored a number of
valuable negatives and the one of the
large group of old students at the Pine
Grove Academy reunion, only made the
day before, was broken:
A Grand Reunion.
Continued from page S.
The Academy occupies a fine location on
one of the highest points of the county, over-
looking the broad and fertile valleys that
stretch off to the cast and west, as far as the |
€ye can see, and planted on the very abut-
ments of the Tussey mountain range it has
truly a picturesque prospect.
een miles from Bellefonte in those early days
a tri-weekly stage line connected Pine Grove
with Bellefonte and gave student and teach-
er the advantage of frequent intercourse
with the world outside the
academical halls,
" After Prof, Ward had put the Academy on
a firm basis and helped prove the first bekef
of its promoters, that it would be a success,
one'of his first pupils, John Elias Thomas,
who had meanwhile graduated at Jefferson
college, was called to succeed his old master,
He was a staunch friend of the common
schools and of the cause of education in gen-
eral, and ‘was the pupil and protege
of the first principal of the insti
tution. J. C. Whitehill and William Gem-
mill were assistants to Prof. Thomas and
helped him push the school along until the
war broke out and its progress received a
temporary check because he went off to the
had charge, but he soon gave way to Theoph-
Thomas returned to take charge of it and
continue as principal until his death, which
occurred in 1872. For more than sixteen
years he had driven the institution steadily
onward to a higher standard and with its ad-
vancement came ga large student body.
From all parts of Centre and adjacent coun-
ties scholars heard of the superior educa-
tional facilities of the Pine Grove Academy
and sought admission to it. Boys and girls
who have since become famous men and
women received their first broadening in-
struction at that old place.
Not every one could enter the Academy.
Applicants for admission were required to
| furnish testimonials of good moral character
and pledge themselves to totally abstain from
the use of intoxicating liguors, while stud-
ents from other institutions were not accept-
ed unless carrying honorable dismissals with
The courses of study were as many and
varied as the needs of the scholars warranted.
Any one could La fitted for college or given
an ordinary business training. Special at-
tention was given to those preparing to teach
and as a kind of a coaching school for teach-
ers the Academy gained a reputation all over
Central Pennsylvania.
The names of many men who have since
become prominent can be found on the old
rolls and the little village of Pine Grove
points with pride to the fact that her
Academy has been the nursery of Doctors of
Divinity, Governors, Congressmen, Judges,
ministers and men of wealth and repute in
business circles.
The success of the school was largely the
result of the pure, moral atmosphere that
pervaded it at all times. Twice a day the
students were assembled for devotional exer-
cises and on the Sabbath day all were re.
quired to attend church and bible class.
Those who had no particular church prefer-
ence went with the principal, while others
were permitted to go to the church of their
In those days schools did not “have the
long sessions they now have. Young men
had more work to do at home and could not
be spared until very late in the fall, ;so that
the term never opened until the first Wed-
nesday in November and closed the last
Wednesday in March, with one week's vaca-
tion at the holidays. There Was a summer
course, from the first Wednesday of April un-
til the last Wednesday of September, that af-
forded those who were ambitious for study
an opportunity to stick at it most of the year.
Then for all these superior advantages the
eXpenses were extremely moderate. Just

pranks they were wont to play at times. All
bills were payable one-half in advance and
the other half before leaving the school.

whole it was a very systematically main-
tained, carefully conducted educational in-
stitution. :
The list of men who have been at its head
at one tinre or another is as follows : .
Prof. Ward was the first principal and he
was succeeded by Prof. Milton Camptell,
who taught but one term, when Prof.
McKenan took his place. Prof, Davidson
followed McKenan and taught until the fall
term of ’58, when Thomas was clected and
continued at the head of the Academy, with
William. Gemmill and J. C. Whitehill as as-
sistants, until he enlisted in the army and

The advance of greater institutions and
the improvement of means of travel and re-
source gradually kept depleting the old:
Academy until its later years have been
more as a select school than anything else.
Rev. C. T. Aiken undertook to rebuild it and
did have one successful term, but gave up
the work and now Mr. Rhone has charge of
it and is on a fair road to-Tetrieving some of
the fallen laurelsof the old school.
| During the presperous days of the
i Academy two' active literary societies flour-
ished there and many the warm debates that
were heard in Pine Grove then. There was
the Euphronian, the ladies society, and the
Athlonon and then, in 1861, the student role
| grew so that a third society, the! Prescott,
' sprang into existence and it afterwards ah-
sorbed the Athlonon,, W. F.

To Americanize the Navy.
WASHINGTON, June 21.—Secretary Long
has a plan to Americanize the navy. A
large portion of the seamen now enlisted
{on American men-of-war are of foreign
birth. In case the United States should
get into war with any foréign power, the
fact that our vessels are manned by-for-
eigners. would "give rise to serious appre-
hensions. Recruiting is soon to begin at
the Atlantic seaboard, the great lakes and
probably the Mississippi river. ~~
