On Friday evening there will be
given in the Columbia Theatre an
entertainment under the auspices of
the Citizens' Band, which will in
clude a minstrel entertainment for
the first part, and a baud concert
for the second part.
Rehearsals have been going on
for some time, and the entertain
meut promises to be one of the
best, if not the very best of the
kind, ever given here.
The musical pirt will be under
the leadership of Prof. Chas. P.
Elwall, who will direct the band
and orchestra.
The business management is in
the hands of Edmund Savidge.
The Citizens Band is an organiza
tion of which the town has every
reason to be proud. There are
few better ones outside of the cities,
and not many there. The Band
has given its services freely on ma
ny occasions, and it has given open
air concerts that have delighted
thousands. f Now, when they are
asking for'help, they are entitled
to a vety liberal patronage.
It takes money to run a band.
Instruments, uniforms, music, and
many other items of expense must
be met in some way. They are
not asking for donations, but are
offering an evening's enjoyment
that will be a very. large equivalent
for the price of a ticket.
A good brass band is a necessity
in every up-to date community.
Bloomsburg is up-to-date. It has
a splendid brass band. Help it
along by your patronage.

John F. Kelly died at his home
on East Seventh street at about
12:30 o'clock on Tuesday after
noon. Death was due to a com
plication of diseases. He was
aged about 64 years.
He is survived by his widow and
the following children: Mrs. Ray
Cain, Edward, Anna, Ethel, Ru
pert, Winifred, Tulia, Mable, Rob
ert aud Charity.
Mr. Kelly came to Bloomsburg
many years ago, and for a long
time was employed as engineer at
the McKelvy & Neal furnace, up
to the time of the closing down of
that industry. He was an expert
mechanic, and since that time he
has been employed by Harman &
Hassert. until his illness compelled
him to cease work.
Mrs. Kelly is a sister of Charles
L. Rupert, the well-known green
truck dealer.
Mrs. Ro jert Brennen, wife of the
Coroner of Columbia county, and
one of the best known women in
Centralia, died at her home in that
place ou Tuesday morning at 2
o'clock. Death was due to apo
plexy. She was aged 48 years.
Mrs. Brennen, whose maiden
name was Kate Langdon, was a
teacher in the public schools of
Centralia for twenty-three years.
She had the greatest respect of all
who knev her.
Eesides being an active member
of St. Ignatius Roman Catholic
church she was a member of the La
dies' Auxiliary to the Ancient Or
der of Hibernians and of the Sanc
tuary Society of the Catholic
Besides her husband she is sur
vived by the following children:
Miss Nellie Brennen, school teach
er at Mid Valley; Miss Rose Bren
nen and Robert, Ignatius and Ma
ry Breuueu, all of whom reside at
She is also survived by her broth
er, Deputy Sheriff John J. Lang
don, a sister, Mrs. Mary Donahue,
of Mt. Carmel, and a half brother,
Michael O'Hara, who is a ccunty
commissioner in Dodge county,
The fuueral will be held from St.
Ignatius church, Centralia, on Sat
urday morning at 9 o'clock. In
terment will be made in the St. Ig
natius Catholic cemetery.
The third fire within two weeks
occurred on Tuesday night. At
about 9 o'clock the roof of the res
idence of Barton Shaffer on Eighth
street was discovered to be in
flames. The fire alarm soou called
the several fire companies to the
scene, and the fire was soon under
control. The fire was first seen
and the alarm given by Mrs. E. J.
Brown who lives near by.
All the household goods on the
first floor, and nearly all on the sec
ond were removed. Thr2e bed
room suits, carpets, and other arti
cles in the attic were destroyed.
There was insurance on the build
ing, but none on the goods.
Mr. Shaffer has been unfortunate
with fire. Two years ago he lost
bis barn, horse, wagons, and every
thing in the barn.
The cause of the fire is a mys
tery, as there was no fire in the
house except in the kitchen stove.
There are no electric wires in the
house, and no one had been in the
attic for some days.
Potatoes are now selling at 1.20
to 1.25 a bushel. The reason for
the high price is said to be the
short crop last season. 1
