hesitated a moment. "I don't believe
he can lick Dewey," he answered at
last, and his teacher sat silent between

Church Dedication.
"Great success" is the report from the
dedication of the M. E. Church at Yus
tin last Sunday. Dr. Gray of Dickenson
Seminary, Williamsport, Pa., was pre
sent and gave new proof of his master
ful ability as preacher and financier,
and was assisted by the Rev's It. W.
Whitely and C. F. Weise who did noble
service in raising the necessary funds.
Fine music for the occasion was fur
nished by a choir, led by Dr. Crosby.
Pledges amounting to over twenty
five hundred dollars were secured
which sum is within seven hundred
dollars of the amount necessary to
meet all indebtedness. Great credit is
due to Rev. A. S. Bowman for his
energy and success in having the edi
fice rebuilt and the laudable zeal exert
ed by him in soliciting subscriptions.
We are requested to publish the
following letter which explains itself.

EMPORIUM PA., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6,1898.
Made an Examination.
EMPORIUM, Pa., Oct. 1, 1898.
To the Officers and Members of the
Shippen Township School Board:
GENTLEMEN:—
In accordance with your request
I have, Thursday, Sept. 29th, 1898,
made a thorough and searching
examination of the conditions and sur
roundings of your school at Beech
wood, Pa., with regard to the following
points:
First—As to whether there is now,
or has recently been any disease in the
residence of D. C. Kirkpatrick, of the
above school district, which would
render it dangerous to the health of
other school children for members of
said D. C. Kirkpatrick's family to at
tend the public school of the district.
Second—As to whether there is any
evidence that the disease which has
prevailed in this locality, during the
past summer, and from which three
patients have died, was any other than
typhoid fever.
I have the honor, gentlemen, to re
port: First—that D. C. Kirkpatrick
himself is at the present time convales
cing from an attack of pneumonia,
which is not a contagious disease, and
that Mrs. Kirkpatrick and a five year
old son who have been sick, with what
I have no doubt to have been typhoid
fever, have entirely recovered, and
that there is no danger whatever to
the public health incurred by any of
the members of this family attending
the public schools.
Second—The evidence 1 have been
able to secure as to the origin, spread
and general course of the disease
brings me to the conclusion that there
need be no doubt whatever but that
the disease which prevailed in this sec
tion during the past season and which
was called thphoid fever by the at
tending physician, was typhoid fever
and nothing else. Typhoid fever,
gentlemen, is a serious disease and the
fact that, under decidedly adverse sur
roundings, a few of the cases failed to
recover is not a valid reason for cast
ing doubt on the diagnosis. There is
a great deal of popular misunderstand
ing with regard to the manner in
which typhoid fever is spread. This
fever is not a contagious disease in the
same sense in which scarlet fever,
small pox and measles are contagions.
Typhoid fever is taken through the
mouth, stomach and intestines, and in
no other way.
If a spring or well is contaminated
by secretions from a typhoid fever
patient every person drinking water
from that source, before it is thoroughly
disinfected, is liable to have typhoid
fever, and every cow drinking such
infected water is liable to pass the dis
ease onto any person using her milk.
These facts being incontrovertible it
naturally follows that a rigid enforce
ment of certain sanitary rules ought to
prevent the spread of this disease. A
quarantine of persons who have en
tirely recovered is not, however,
among these rules.
Your school building at Beechwood
is admirably situated, and the sanitary
surrounding are most excellent. Your
teacher here, Miss Evers, is an un
usually intelligent and sensible young
lady, and is to be strongly commended
■for the position she assumed in this
dispute; pending a decision she ex
excluded the cause of the controversy
from the school, which is exactly the
proper thing to do in all such cases.
In conclusion, gentlemen, allow me
to say that I most heartily approve of
your course in this matter. If, in your
minds, there was the slightest sus
picion that in the presence of any
scholar there lurked danger to the
health of the school, then that scholar
should have been excluded till all
doubt was satisfactorily removed.

Fire at Austin.
Austin was visited by another fire
yesterday at 10 o'clock. It started in
the Starkweather block in the rear of
Attorney Arthur Ormerod's office over
the barber shop. It spread along the
second and third stores of that block,
destroying everything for the length
of five stores. The fire did not get
down to the first floor, but the contents
of the stores were ruined by water.
Mr. Ormerod lost everything—cloth
ing books and papers. The destroyed
property was fully insured.—Enter

and was. thrown across it. Engineer
Alex Kerby was thrown violently from
the cab window. His left arm was
badly splintered and broken near the
elbow. The fireman, George Morrison,
had one hand broken across the knuck

Both men reside in Renovo, and
were brought down on train No. 6, the
same evening Dr. Weymouth gave
Mr. Kerby surgical attention.

The damaged engine and cars are in

Mrs. Niles Taylor Passes Away.
Mrs. Ann Elida. Taylor entered the
blessed rest of Paradise, September
24th, 1898.
She was born in Unadilla, Otsego Co.,
New York, December 28th, 1825. She
was of English descent, being a direct
descendant of Edward Fuller who emi
grated from that country to the colon
ies in 102(1. Her grandfather, Issac
Fuller, was a lieutenant in the Revolu
tionary army, and received promotion
for bravery at the battle of Bunker Ilill.
Mrs. Taylor first came to Smetliport
in 18-18 on a visit to her uncle Ezra
Bard, then sheriff of McKean county,
and was married March Ist of the fol
lowing year to Mr. A. N. Taylor; thus
making a residence among us of about
half a century.
Her character was a strong one, with
an underlying vein of tenderness,
abundantly evident by her kindly min
istrations to the sick, tlio dying and
the dead, many instance of which are
well remembered by our people.
The will of the late Mrs Ann Elida
Taylor was presented for probate Tues
day and contained the following be
quests:? 5,000 to Mary Elida Cummings;
SI,OOO to St. Luke's church; §1,500 to
Rennie H. Fuller; $1,400 to May W.
Fuller; §3,000 to Frank N. Taylor; SI,OOO
to Raymond Young'. SI,OOO to Lois
Young; SI,OOO to Ned Newman; SI,OOO
to Jerome Newman; SIOO in trust for
cemetery lot; $3,000 in trust for Frank
N. Taylor. The balance of the estate is
to be divided between Ada M. Young
and the children of Flora T. Newman,
deceased.—McKean Miner.

night. I don't know how many they
captured, but can say they captured
something that wasn't a coon, judging
from the unpleasant odor that came

a mile away.
It has been authoritatively stated that
J. S. Farley and Charles Connor, of
this place have contracted to cut A. S.
Shaw's timber on Mix Run. The job
consists of about five million of hem

Grove township Republicans are ex
pressing themselves as well pleased
with tho result of the late County Con

good Republican majority at the Nov

proper and natural result and in per

of things," at a time like the present
when the very atmosphere is charged
with reasons why a sweeping Republi
can victory is "needed in our business."
Mr. Isaac Floyd and Miss Maggie
Bailey slipped away to Lock Haven on
Saturday, Sept. 24, and were quietly
married, so their many friends at home
wouldn't find it out (?) until too late
for the calathumpians to celebrate the
event. O, no; they didn't find it out!
But all the same the 'band' was in tune
when the happy couple returned, but
the wily groom, who is foreman on the
log train found it necessary to take a
trip up into tho woods and stayed all
night. On his return one would think
Ike was running for all the offices in
the county and was going to buy them
cigars. He silenced (he band, however,
and everybody joins in congratulations
and best wishes for the future happi
ness of these popular young people.
May their prosperity be abundant and
their troubles only little ones.

On Saturday the old "Klondyke"
building, on Costelle Avenue, ancl the

House, which adjoined the "Klondike."
Austin suffered two conflagrations
last week. The upper story of the east
end of the Starkweather block burned
out on Tuesday, shorty after dinner.
L. Starkweather, who had just returned
to Austin with his bride, started a fire
in a new cook stove, with gas, and
from some cause unknown it exploded,
sotting lire to the building. The fire
laddies soon hail six streams on the
building and drowned the fire out in a
few minutes.
The mystery surrounding tho dis
appearance of C. J. Kittle, about nine
months ago, was solved the fore part of
last week by the finding of his bones
by Elijah Prouty, while on a gingseng
expedition, about two miles from his
home, in the woods. The authorities
were notified, the bones gathered up,
and interment made in Austin Ceme
tery. Your readers will remember the
finding of a man in Decatur township,
about two years ago, nearly famished
and of being taken care of by the
authorities. This was C.J. Kittle under
a different name.
