Friday afternoon, March 11, the dowlllng
houso of Susan Faws, tn Pino township,
was destroyed by Arc, being a total loss,
with the exception of a little furniture la
ken from tho first floor. Tho property was
Insured In tho Brlarcrcck Farmer's Insur
ance company. The company received no-
tlco of tho fire nn the Wednesday following
and adjusted tho loss the next day.
"I believe," said a property owner, "that
a good tenant should bo retained at a rea
sonable prlco and when you get such a
party In your house, keep htm, If possible,
as It Is far moro profitable to retain a good
tenant at a llttlo less rent than to havo
wotthlcis parties moving In and out and
destroying tho property, making It unfit
for renting at ovcry such removal."
Danville Is rejoicing over tho prospect of
new steel plant. About tho first of
March ground was broken for tho erection
of buildings for a company to bo known as

over three acres of ground. It will bo
some time beforo tho works aro completed,
but when finished It will givo employment
to many hundreds of workmen.
In tbo Legislature at Uarrisburg on Fri
day last Mr. Woodward offered a resolution

county, because of its being more ccn'
trally located in the Klato and its being
tbo homo of many of our Governors, and
large and suitable grounds being tendered
by some of tho public-spirited citizens of
Bellefonte. The resolution was tabled and
may not be called up again. It however,

Tho entertainment given at Normal hall,
Friday evening of last week by the Model
school children, was a decided success.
The drama was the best yet selected and
its rendition showed thorough and system
atic training on the part of the In
structors. The music, under the di
rection of Prof. Nllns, was very entertain'
lng. The attendance was not as large as
should have been, but the condition of tho
weather and the many entertainments pre
ceding this ono was tho probable cause
There is some talk of the Model school giv
ing another entertainment in the near fu
turo when it is to be hoped that tho houso
will bo filled to overflowing, as the proceeds
will be used in furnishing apparatus in the
rooms of the new building, for tho better
instruction of the children.
Humanity's Ills can only be measured by )
uumanlty's wants lienco tbe wine press I
of wralh, so universally trodden by human
depravity, and from whicn flows Into tho
wino cup of human misery, which deprav
ed humanity craves to driuk to tbe very
dregs, was founded by their own errors,
and is the work of their own folly. Mani-
fold am Jtho ingredients that ndd to tho
gall of Its bitterness. Legalized and licen
sed debauchery are criminal links to chain
slavish misery to every heart. Incarnate
demons havu their workshops in every
sultablo placo for human prostitution,
spreading their nets at every corner. Tne
innocent once iu their meshes, their ruin
is almost a certainty. The lesson of ex.
perlenci once learned and the cup drained
Its repl Ition is but the result of the on
moving column to the common end.
Violation of law, (a natural Impulse of
the heart,) against health, society, state, or
Deity contributes to the enormity of Its
penalty, for which atonement must be
made through punishmxntor reconciliation,
eltber In timo or in eternity Reform Is on
the match, hut its progress is impeded at
every step. Tho path before it, on either
side, Is strewn with human wrecks. Every.
where tho obstructions are fortified by
human depravity. Everywhere the wheels
of public councils are clogged by the cry
ing demands of folly against reform.
Naturally humanity seeks Its own degra
dation and exerts every influence to main
tain its sinking condition. Lint there Is a
sphere of nobler, higher, social relation,
aspiring to holier emotions. A higher
plune of life and morality; a mountain of
peace and happiness, n source of Joy and
gladness; free from contaminating guilt
and crime, without accusing consclenco

will lift all tho world who como to Him,
Study but tho golden rule and comply
with Its requirements and you will already
havo won tho battle of life, found the truo

A DECISION lit THE SUl'BEME COCItT CONCERN
ISO ASSION'ED POLICIES.
Judgo Paxton dcllveied an opinion in
tho Supremo Court Monday which is of
general interest and Importance, the case
Involving a question which frequently
arises In the life Insurance business and
which has never before been decided in
this Stale. Bertolct Grant took out a $3,
030 policy in tho Union Bcnovolent Mutual
Aid Society of Pennsylvania, in March,
1883, and shortly afterwards assigned it to
his brother-in-law, Jacob Kline, to whom
be owed about $300. In addition to this
$300 loan, Kllue had paid out about $400
for Insuring Grant's life In other compan
ies, which had become Insolvent, so
that his Insurable Interest amounted
to about $700. Grant died In November,
1883, nnd tho society paid tho Insur
ancc money to Kllue. Grant's admin
istrators :then brought snlt against him
to recover back the amount, less his debt
and the premiums ho had paid, claiming
timt the debt was so dlsproportioned to
tho amount of tho Insurance as to make
tho latter a wagering contract. Tho lower
Court decided against them and tho Su.
premo Court affirms the Judgment.

Ishcd at the good results; for children with
rickets or marasmus It is unequaled."
"How do you llko Bernhardt ?" he asked.

"Why, ma, you kno. tho children have
