Mr. Howard Informed.
Editor of the Press.
SIR:— In the last issue of the PRESS I
notice an article signed Josiah How
ard. In this article Mr Howard refers
to some outrageous cuttin's up on
Clear Creek, and appears to think our
churches and schools are in some way
responsible for this sad state of things.
Now it seems hardly fair to blame
the churches of our town for these
carryin's on, for you know we cannot
force our religion on any one, and
very likely these people have never
known their Savior.
As he evidently desires some advice
in the matter I would respectfully sug
gest to brother Howard that he tell his
troubles to a policeman.
Yours truly,
Emporium, Pa., May 21, 1808.
Shocked by Lightning.
During the heavy thunder storm
which took place Saturday afternoon,
lightning followed the telegraph wire
that connects the P. & E. depot at
Sterling Run, with the residence of
station agent, Thos. Moore, of that
place, giving Mrs. Moore, who
was standing near the instrument a
severe shock. She fell to the floor and
remained in an unconscious condition
from four o'clock 'till half-past eleven
that night. At present writing her
condition is not considered serious by
her physician, although she is confin
ed to her bed. Miss Brink the opera
tor at the depot also received a shock
in her right arm from the same bolt.
Wreck on the E. & R. V.
A disasterous wreck occurred on the
Emporium and Rich Valley railroad
last Friday afternoon in which the log
loader and seventeen cars loaded with
logs were thrown down an embank
ment. Several of the cars were demol
ished and the loader will be laid off
for about a week to undergo repairs.
Fortunately 110 lives were lost nor was
any one injured in the smash up.
In coming down a heavy grade the
engine lost control of the train, with
the above results.
Rev. nr. and Mrs. Nickel.
These sweet singers left us on Mon
day morning for Niekleville, Clarion
county, this state, Mr. Nickel's native
place. Their stay among us was Indeed
much enjoyed by all who met them,
even aside from their relatives whom
they came more especially to visit
Before coming Mr. Nickel wrote the
pastor of the Presbyterian church that
they were coming to visit their friends
and would be glad to be of service to
his church. Arrangements were at
once made for the "May Musical Festi
vals" which were so pleasant a feature
of their sojourn among Us. It was
thought desirable not to limit these
privileges to the Presbyterian church
and Sabbath school, and so all the
church choirs and singers generally
were cordially invited to join these
choruses, which they did. After a
week's drill under these skillful lead
ers and trainers in sweet sacred song,
the entertainments of Thursday and
Saturday evenings were given as an
nounced. The program as rendered
on each evening was a delightful one,
uplifting in its character. Mr. and
Mrs. Nickel also helped with all ex
cept two of the services of the Presby
terian church including the Sabbath
school exercises during the three
Sabbaths they spent in our town. On
two of these Sabbath evenings they
held evangelistic song services, to the
delight of large congregations. They
also led two of the week evening
services for the same church. Besides
these labors, they gave their efficient
help to other churches —last Sabbath
morning to our Episcopal friends and
in the evening leading a service at the
Methodist church. On one or two
othei; occasions, after the close of
services at the Presbyterian church,
they hastened to the Methodist church
at the pastor's invitation, and sang
some of their beautiful selections,
while yet their services continued. It
is needless to say that all these abund
ant services were deeply impres
sive, as well as entertaining and fully
appreciated by all who had the privil
ege of attending.
Mr. and Mrs. Nickel were associated
for three years with Mr. Moody in his
great work in Chicago. Feeling him
self called to the work of a song Evan
gelist exclusively, he recently resigned
his pastorate in Illinois, and will hence
forth devote himself to this noble
work, assisted so efficiently by his
amiable and excellent wife. And
surely Emporium will bid them God
Pure Bred.

MADRID, May 28.—A dispatch has
just been published giving details of
the arrival of Admiral Cervera's squad
ron at Santiago de Cuba. It says:
"At 8 o'clock on the morning of May
19, the Infanta Maria Teresa entered
the port of Santiago de Cuba Hying
the Hag of Admiral (Vrvera. She was
followed almost immediately by the
Vizcaya, the Almirante Oquendo, the
Cristobal Colon and the torpedo boat
destroyer Pluton. Soon afterwards the
torpedo boat destroyer Furor, which
had been reconnoitering, arrived. •
"The inhabitants swarmed to the
shore of the bay, displaying the utmost
Joy and enthusiasm. All the vessels in
the port were dressed in gala array. On
Sunday night there was an Imposing
demonstration in he nor of the officers
and crews. The bands of the city
played patriotic airs: there were bril

"Admiral Cervera and his officers
were given a banquet at the Casino,
where loyal toasts were honored, the
principal speeches being by Admiral
Cervera and Mgr. Saenz de Urturi y
Crespo, archbishop of Santiago de
Cuba, the latter of whom exclaimed,
'lt is not sufficient to be victorious on
the sea. The Spanish flag must float
on the Capitol.'
"The squadron has revictualled. Five
vessels were in front of the port yes

can vessel Eagle has been charged to
cut the cables."

"There has been an active exchange
of dispatches between the government
and the authorities at Havana and

"Official telegrams from Cuba con

Sampson and Commodore Schley, with
their combined squadrons, are now in
front of Santiago de Cuba, blockading
Admiral Cervera. Ministers consider
that Santiago possesses sufficient de
fenses to meet any aggressive action

Typhoid Fever at Truman.

to be raging at Truman. One death
has occurred during the past week and

They are all under the care of Dr.
Baker who reports five of the patients
to be cut of danger, but the sixth who
is suffering from blood poisoning and
who was just recovering from the

is in a very critical condition.
"Nothing Like It."
That is what a Buffalo gentleman

Hon. C. W. Stone's chances for the
nomination for Governor were given a
good boost last week, having gained
eighteen delegates last Saturday alone.
With such counties as Lancaster, Wash
ington, Bedford joining hands with
the north-west, C. W. Stone will enter
the convention with a strong following
of stalwart Republicans, largely per
sonal friends of Senator Quay.
Among those who are of the opinion
that W. A. Stone will not be nominated
for Governor the impression seems to
be growing that C. W. Stone of War
ren, is most likely to be named. It is
argued that he has a number of dele
gates instructed for him and that he is
generally regarded as a Republican
who would command the support of
the bulk of the party. There are a
number, however, who seem to think
that Judge John Stewart, of Franklin,
may be named.—Harrisburg Telegraph.
The Republicans of Forest county in

Dr. S. S. Towler for the legislature; S.
M. Henry for' Treasurer; A. W. Cook
for Congress; lion. N. P. Wheeler for
State delegate, instructed for Chas. W.
Stone for Governor. The nomination
of Dr. Towler for the legislature is
simple justice to an honorable gentle
man, who conscientiously and zealously
represented Forest county in the ses
sion of'9l. Ilis conceded ability as a
legislator should give him the unanim
ous vote of Forest. Dr. Towler will
creditably fill theehair so ably occupied
by Hon. J. E. Wenk during the past
two terms.

When about 20 years of age she gave
her heart to God and her name to the
M. E. Church,of which she remained a
member until the close of her beauti

She was married to George Straw
bridge, Oct. 26th, 1887. To this happy
marriage was born two interesting
little girls now left to continue their
course in life without the love and
counsel of a mother.
Those who witnessed the patience
and christian fortitude which she
evinced in the closing hours of her life
were wonderfully impressed. But her's
was an amiable and sweet christian
life, and its close could not be other
wise. She was universally loved by
those who knew her and doubtless did
not have an enemy,
