On last Monday evening at five o'clock, at the home of the bride's parents in Austin, Mr. George H. Gross, of this place, and Miss Alice, the highly accomplished daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Montgomery, were united in marriage by the Rev. H. L. Gary, of the Presbyterian church. Mr. Harry Derby officiated as best man, and Miss Maggie Montgomery, sister of the bride, acted .as bridesmaid. At the close of the ceremony an elegant repast was served, after which the happy couple, amid a shower of rice and old shoes, departed on the 6:45 train for Emporium, where they will reside in the future. Mr. Gross is one of Emporium's popular young men, having resided here all his life; while the bride is one of Austin's most refined young ladies and is held in high esteem by all who know her. The following persons were present at the wedding: Mr. and Mrs. Woster, Mr. and Mrs. James Logan, Mr. and Mrs. Burton, Mr. and Mrs. H.L.Gary, Mrs. Frank W.

THE AMERICANS IN HAVANA IN DANGER. Consul General Lee Cables that to Declare Our Position /leant Trouble to Those on the Island* Will Take Until Sunday Next to fend all to a Place of Safety—The Hessage Will Probably Qo in on Honday Next. The war excitement seems to have been quieted by a report that the Queen Regent of Spain has dismissed her Cabinet and opened negotiations direct with Minister Woodford, conceding to this coun try every demand, t'p to the hour of going to press, 11:00 a. in., we give the latest telegraph news in this column. So many reports are flying thick and fast. WASHINGTON, April <».—Swift as a cannon's Hash changed the Cuban situation to-day. The gal leries of Congress were crowded. Senators and Representatives were anxious and agitated, even the diplomatic corps was in a ferment, awaiting a message from the Presi dent of the United States to the Congress of the American people that might mean war, when, with excitement at the very highest, an electric flash, the word passed that there would be no message to-day. Its suddenness stunned the public which heard the news in distorted forms, and amazed veteran mem bers of Congress. Ultimately, it became known that not only would there be no message to-day, but no message this week, and that it was at least possible the message written and approved might never goto Congress at all. Till'. REASON'S FOR I UCLA Y. The first reason for the delay was that the administration re ceived advices from General Lee, at Havana, indicating that all Americans could not be gotten off the island to-day and would be in : grave peril if the message preceded I their departure. The second reason j and perhaps equally potent with | the others, slowly drifted into pub- j lie comprehension late in the day, chiefly through the medium of published Associated Press des patches from Madrid, lor extreme reticence was maintained on the subject by the few in Washing ton who knew the facts —-and even Cabinet officers were unadvised on the subject. SPAIN IS WEAKENING. This important news was that the Spanish government, after what plainly had been most ex citing times in inner Spanish cir cles at Madrid, has decided to re open the case closed, so far as this j government was concerned, by the refusal of Spain to make satis factory response to the representa tions made by the United States last week, and in order to avert impending war had decided to make concessions heretofore re fused. What will be the final outcome, it is too early to say, but the as pect of affairs is considerably more pacific and sufficient to renew the hope of the President in a solution of the Cuban question satisfactory to the American people and achiev ed without bloodshed. The details seem to be worked out, but it is ex pected that between now and .Mon day, a clearer light will be thrown lon the future by action at Madrid, ; of which one important feature at least is the declaring of an armis tice by the Queen Regent of Spain. This armistice, it is said, will lead to ultimate in dependence of | Cuba, from Spanish rule, but by > what intermediate steps perhaps even the governing powers do not at this time know. Much it is sup posed, will depend upon the Cuban insurgents and the people of two countries, of the United States and Spain. Easter Flowers. There will be a large assortment of cut flowers and plants for sale at M. M. Larrabee's store next Saturday, by Class No. 10, of the M. E. Sunday School. The Correct Thing. For an Easter breakfast is "West phalia" brand mild sugar cured ham and boneless bacon, whole, 11c. lb. Baked, they are simply delicious— sweet, juicy, tender. We have them if you like, at 30c. lb. sliced, ready for table. DAY'S. Mason Hill Letter. j It makes all the difference in the : world whose ox is gored. A number of young men from a dis i tance attended church here on Sunday. Supervisors Daugherty and Mix j looked over this part of the road on j Saturday. C. W. Williams returned from Lock Haven on Friday with a fine span of horses. Omer Ives and Willie Miller took in the sights at Medix Run the fore part of the week. Mrs. Miller was called to Medix Run on Tuesday by the serious illness of relatives. Miss Lelo Williams and Madge Mil ler, of Huston Hill, visited friends here the latter part of the week. Mr. M. Hill moved his family to Sin nemahoning the fore part of the week. The house vacated by Mr. Hill will be occupied by Chas. Connors. We are informed that Mr. O. B. Tanner, while coming from Huntley on Tuesday, on a "long tailed rattler 5 ' was severely hurt while getting off at Sterling. _ Mose Carpenter in his communica tions to the Independent says, Geo. Huntley, Jr., is at his father's home on a visit. Mr. Huntley thinks it is very poor business for a scribe to defend a violator of the laws of God and humanity. Your smart correspondent thought he would come to his right mind after while. A few more thoughts in regard to that "young man" mentioned a few weeks ago and I will stop. I based my article on the truth and only the truth and the truth has touched a tender spot in Mr English's armor. That young man was neither slander ed or misrepresented beyond his own moral conduct and character, and if he was why don't Mr. English or the ?ne accused, bring the slanderer to justice? We have laws if they were putin force and my name will be found at the bottom of that article at the PRESS office. He said he was very much surprised when he saw the arti cle not having heard of any such racket. It makes no difference whether he heard it or not it happened just the same. Some people can be awful deaf when they want to be. Joe L. Parley while going over to Russell's heard the racket at Bailey's lane (a distance of ninety rods from the school house) and stopped to sec what was the matter, saw the accused and went on about his business, like any young man of common sense and good breeding would do. Mr. English also says when he saw the item he took steps to seek the truth. If he had been what he advertises himself to be, he would not have run the gauntlet on Sunday last, looking for evidence, for no names were men tioned in my article. I said for the benefit of the community I would not mention his name. It makes no dif ference how mean a person is there is always lots of people to uphold them in their meanness As for Walter Ban being present, so was I; we were both connected with the entertainment. In an interview with Walter on the subject, he said he told the truth and asks "why Mr. English didn't publish all he told him ?" The trouble is, En glish picked out the part he wanted and threw the rest aside. Admitting that there was a little confusion in the school room, yet, if the accused had been where he should have been (home) everything would have been quiet in the house, and as for telling lies, Mr. English, (as a class-leader in the church) had better see that his own windows are well barred before throw stones at his neighbors who, al though, never wore the necklace of truth, yet, has a good moral standing in the eyes of the people as he has. Now with a brief summary I will stop, but if Mr. English continues with his self-vindication in this scrape I deem I'll make it "hot" 'nough for him. Now Mr. editor, or gentle reader, if you think I am telling anything else but the truth I would simply | refer you to Miss Summerson who will tell you the same as I have told; and more, as I have forgot to mention any thing about the incidents that happen ed the night the shutters were lifted off the hinges and the teacher struck in the eye with a snow ball. April 4th. DING. [This controversy is of no interest to I the general public and since both sides . have had their say, wo must decline to publish any more articles upon the matter.

Soble is now in the city pur chasing his new goods—many of his purchases having already arrived. He will have all his goods in place this week. Call and see them.

U., says that thus far he has distributed 800 checks and paid out §BO,OOO. He has but §4OO left in his possession, and that is due members who have not vet been found. They are probably dead; got tired waiting.—Warren Mail. There is a strong sentiment through out the entire state that the nomination of C. W Stone as the Republican can didate for Governor, would harmoniz? all elements of the party and result in a Republican victory of large propor tions in Pennsylvania next November. —Franklin Citizen Press. Did it ever occur to you that many more old women than men live alone? An old man is forced togo and live with his children when his wife dies, but an old woman will live alone as long as she has strength left to put a pan on the fire and break an egg in it, and seem to be very contented. R. Seger & Son's handsome store windows attract the attention of all passers-by. The beautiful display 01 furnishings as well as the Easter flow ers and plants are the handiwork of the junior member of the firm, Mr. Wm. T.
