Wednesday Morning, January 13, '69,
NEEDED IMP it OVIMEN T. —Tho grat
progress made in our town the past year
is very gratifying to our nitisens, and
very creditable to their enterprise; but
there are some minor matters that need
attention, and that would add much to
the comfort of our people, and tend great
ly to impress strangers sojourning
amongst us, with a favorable opinion of
our Borough. Small wooden bridges over
the gutters are needed at many of our
crossings, and are found at but few.—
These gutters .may not greatly incom
mode those who are familiar with our
streets, but to strangers they are snares
and nuisances. It would cost but atrifie
to remedy this evil. The two crossings
in front of the Brockerhoff House need
to be raised and repaired, and arc prob
ably the most used in town. - The two
Bishop street crossings, at the corners of
Allegheny street, arc also very bad. The
open cellarways and cellar at the corner
of Bishop and Allegheny streets need to
have some guards erected, unless it be
thought desirable to have some one tum
ble in there some dark night, and break
a limb or a neck.
We hope, also, that the reform inau
gurated on Spring street last summer,
narrowing a.ll ellarways and dcibr steps
to four feet, Wine enibiced on all our
principal streets, as early next spring as
We come now to the cow nuisance. We
have an ordinance which compels our
citizens who own hogs, to keep them con
fined to their stys, or lots, but we submit
that in comparison the cows reaming
our streets, and littering our pavements
with fah is, by all odds, the greater nui
sance of the two. As it is far more profit-
able to their owners, and far better for
the stock to keep them under shelter in
winter at least, and as it is necessary for
every man, who owns a cow, to have a
shelter for her, we submit that there is
no shadow of reason for their being al
lowed to wander about the streets, and
annoy the people who drive here with
their wagons and sleds, on business, and
those who are compelled to foot. it about
town, frequently by day and night. An
Ordinance compelling the owners to
keep their cows out of the streets and al-
leys, except when driven to water or
pasture, is one that would be of equal
benefit to all concerned, and moreover a
kindness to the cows in this severe seas
This is a tolcrab'y long, and yet rather
goodnatured growl al our Borough mana
gers, but they will bear with us if we
suggest that all this can soon be reme
died by a little systematic energy. Let
Ordinances be framed, and their prompt
execution provided for, by commAtiug
the duty of carrying them out to some
one of their agents. The Street Com
missioner might look after the crossings,
and see to the enforcement of the Ordi
nance requiring the removal of snow,
lately much neglected, with full authori
ty to remove -it, if not done by owners,
and charge the expense upon them, or
defray it by fines imposed for neglect
The high Constable might look after the.
cows as well as hogs. By providing for
grading and paving our streets, where
needed, each by special Ordinances, and
for repairing of defective pavements, of
which there are Many, in the same way,
after due notice to owners, and charg
ing the Street Commissioners with the
execution of such Ordinances, a great
many much-needed improvements might
be made at a very small expense to the
Borough, or its citizens, and without in
creasing our debt, or adding materially
to our taxation.
SAD CASTJALITY.-A child of Mrs' Jane
Brown - who resides on Howa'rd street in
this Borougb,was suffocated by smoke,on
Friday of last. week. Mrs. Brown was
employed at Rev. Mr. Yeomans, wash
ing, and had left her child in the house
with her son, aged about eight years, as
was her usual custom. The boy went off
to play, and in his absence the house
caught fire. When discovered the cra
dle and clothing was burnt up, and the
floor on fire• The fire was extinguished
and the house saved, but the child was
found dead in a corner of the room. to
gether with his dog and cat all huddled
together. He was about fifteen months
old. Mrs. Brown is the widow of a sol
dier, and maintains herself by washing
for various families. She has the sym
pathy of all our citizens in this heavy af
fliction. The fire company turned out
promptly on the alarm, but the supply of
water was so lon- that the hose were use
less. The fire was extinguished with
water from the neighboring cisterns.
The failure, so frequently, of our wa
ter supply, it beginning to attract gen
eral attention, and the fact that we are
entirely at the mercy of the flames when
ever they may happen to break out, is
one that ought to stimulate our authori
ties to find the ways and means of reme
dying the defect. It is alleged that the
trouble is in the pipes feeding the Res
ervoir, 'but it is probably rather owing to
want of sufficient power to raise the wa
ter from the spring. If looks as though
an engine would soon become a necessity,
as the water power seems to be inade
quate to the task of forcing up a sufficient
supply Tub growth of the town and in
creased 'Consumption 'Of Water hasbeen so
rapid that it beconies 'plainly evident that
we must have more water sent up the
hill. It is reported that the large reser
voir was entirely empty on the day - of
the fire at Mrs. Brown's house.
The house of Robert Ale Knight, adver
tised for sale in last week's issue, has
been purchased by James C. Waddle,
Esq. The adjoining lot remains unsold,
and may be purchased from Mr. Mc-
Knight on reasonable terms.
This was quick work, and proves that
advertising in the BELLEFONTE REPUBLI-
cas pays. We say to 141 . r. McKnight,

CHANGE or TRAINS.—Geo. C. Wilkins,
Esq., Superintendent of Tyrone Division
of Penn'a Railroad, is about making some
important changes in the running of
trains on the Bald Eagle Valley and Ty
rone and Clearfield Railroads.
The Tyrone and Lock Haven Mail, A.
Haupt, Conductor, will run on the same
schedule as at present. The morning
train, W. C. Irvin, Conductor, will be
run from Tyrone to Clearfield and back,
leaving Tyrone at about 9 o'clock, A.M.,
and return in the evening in time to con
nect with Ciciunati Express east, and
Mail west on Main Line.
A new train will be put on the Bald
Eagle Valley Railroad, to leave Lock
Haven about 10:20, A. M., connecting
with P. & E. Mail, west, and pass Belle
fonte about 12 o'clock, M., and connect
at Tyrone with. Emigrant and Accommo
dation west, and Mail east. Will remain
there till 7 &clack, P, M., when it will
return, arrive at Bellefonte at about 9
o'clock, P. M., arrive at Lock Haven in
time to connect with mail east on P. &E.
Railroad. As soon as the Tyrone and
Clearfield road shall be in good order,
one other passenger train will be put on,
which will enable passengers to go to
Philipsburg and Clearfield the same day,
but not return till the nest day. This
arrangement will be better for the local
travel, which is an important considera
tion. Passengers going east or West, how
ever, from Bellefonte, will bite Lo go in
night trains on the Main Line.

our present prosperity.

GEO. P. HARRIS,
H. Y. STITZER, Com.
J. S. BARNHART.
Having found fault with various mat
ters in and about our Borough, it is but
fair that we shoLld paint another pie-
The citizens of Bellefonte have reason
to congratulate themselves upon the fact
that they have a most efficient and vigi
lant Police force. Our town has never
been so well governed, and its good order
so well maintained, as since the appoint
ment of our present policemen. They
deserve great credit for their energy and
fidelity and give our citizens far more
than value received for their money.
We are fortunate, too, in having se
cured a Chief Burgess who gives strict
attention to the duties imposed upon him,
and carefully and impartially, as wellas
promptly. disposes of all cases brought
before him. It would be well for our
citizens to insist upon his retaining his
position as long as possible, though we
are aware that our Burgess, Mr. E. M.
Blanchard, is anxious to berelievedfrom
the duties, and we may add, the annoy
ances of the position.
DRUG STORE.-Our friend, prank S.
Wilson has a very neat Drug Store, room
No. 1, Broekerhoff House. He has every
thing usually kept in a Drug Store—is
doing a splendid business—and we are
glad .of it. He is a correct and honest
business man, and ruoreover, a : clever
CHARITY AND, GOOD SPlNlTS.—Some
body says that many a man sits in his
own house full of benevolent desires,
longing to do good to somebody, anxious
to make those around him happy; but he
does not know how, and seems to himself
a useless and merely speculative being,
incapable of doing good. Let that man
only put on hie hat and fisit the garret
of some poor family, or assist his poor
relatives, and it will do him good in a
Ithousand ways. The money 'lie throws
away daily in luxury, would Teed and
clothe and rejoice a dozen sickaud starv
ing families. Such benevolence will do
more to - Pronio . te economy than it will
ever cost. It will • coine back to him who
:gives, saving him from foolish luxuries.
It will show up the hollowness of the fol
ies on which he wastes what might set
up many a family. Fifty dollars extra
on a piano might not seem much; but
there is many a poor and honest widow
to whom a fifty dollar sewing machine
would be a fortune; and she could in
time even repay the cost, to be lent in
the same form to another and another.
Wretched passengers on the sea of life,
at this season, lie on the loam of every
wave. Perhaps many and most of the
misfortunes of the poor are more or less
the result, in some way, of their own
faults. But have those who have been
more suocessfiil had no faults ? A kind
word and a 'helping hand may giVe the
turn to the fortune of the child al mis
fortune, and raise up many such a one
higher than could possibly be imagined
by those who have never made the effort
and never try it. ,
ADVERTISING.—No money invested
pays so well as judicious advertising.—
Harace Greely has said "that the mer
chant who pays more in rent than he
"does for advertising does not under
"stand his business," and we think Hor
ace is right. Every Merchant, every
Hotel keeper, every grist mill, every
woollen factory, every Physician, every
business man, and every farmer
in Centre county, who has anything to
sell, should advertise his business in the
BELLEFONTE: REPTIDLICAN. It will most
assuredly pay five hundred per cent. on
the money invested.
The Merchant who advertises, shows
thereby, to the men with whom he deals
in the cities of Philadelphia and New
York, that he is a live many and under:
stands his business. "No man," is the
language of_high authority, "lighteth a
candle and puteth it under a bushel."
A city set upon a hill, is a beautiful fig.
ur9. Let your light_ shine, is good ad
vice in business, as well as in spiritual
matters. Act upon this advice, and re
alize a handsome profit.
TIM RAT NUISANCE,—We clip the fol
lowing recipe for destroying rats from
the Harrisburg daily Telegraph. It is
worth double the price of a years sub
scription to any farmer or housekeeper
in the country. It will banish every rat:
•r_lateliing rats is often difficult, as old
rats are proverbially cunning. Laying
around poison is dangerous not alone,
but also objectionable, for the reason
that rats may die at inaccessible spots
and contaminate the atmosphere with
their well known detestable odor. Abet:
ter plan has been adopted by one of our
correspondents, by which he takes ad
vantage of the cunning habits of the rats.
He covers the boor near the rat hole
with a thin layer of moist caustic pot
ash; when the rats walk on this it makes
their feet sore; these they lick with their
tongues; it makes their mouths sore, and
the result is they shun this locality, not
alone, but appear to tell all the neigh
boring rate about it, and eventually the
house is abandoned by them, notwith
standing the neighborhood may may be
teeming with rats.
GOOD ADVICE.—Aia exchange very ap
propriately remarks that every poor la
boring man should buy himself a town
lot— get that paid for and then work to
and the necessary improvements--a lit
tie here and a little there will, in due
time, produce you a home of your own,
and place you outside of the landlord's
grasp. Remember that $5O a year saved
in rent will, in a Very few years, pay for
your own home, and the money it costs
you to move and shift about will, with
out any loss of furniture and of time,
pay the interest of a five hundred dollar
judgment against your property until
you can gradually reduce it to nothing.
You can all buy in that way—why do
you not risk it? If you fail you are no
worse off—if you succeed, as any careful
man is sure to do, you have made a home
and established a credit equal to another
which will start you in business.
LIME AND CoAL.—Shortldge & Co., as
will be seen by their advertisement, are
exerting every energy to eupply the mar
ket with tho best of Wood and Coal-burnt
Lime. And it is certainly true that, but
for the indefatigable efforts put forth
by these men to supply the town and
Country with Anthracite coal, we might
have all frozen, or been compelled to
seek elsewhere at exborbitant prices.—
The strikes at the mines, and the demand
and. amount shipped west, run up the
price of coal, and made it almost impos
sible to get coal here. Col. Shortlidge
will bring things to rights, if anybody
Ir• any of our friends from town or

meal, or a lunch, at any time, they wil
find our next-door neighbors, Messrs.
DoWning and Yeager, at all times pre
