Wedding Bells.
Cards are out announcing the marri
age of Miss Flossie Taggert, daughter
of Mrs. Helen M. Taggart, of this place,
to Dr. Floyd Lee Van Wert, of Wood
lawn, Pa., son of Mr. and Mrs. George
W. Van Wert, of New Castle, Pa , for
merly of this place. Miss Taggart
stole a march on her many friends at
this place and went to the home of her
sister, Mrs. George Deike, at Kittan
niiig, Pa., where the marriage was
quietly solemnized last Saturday. The
bride is one of Emporium's most
charming and accomplished daughters,
being a musician of high standing.
Mrs. Van Wert has spent her entire
life in our midst and we regret that she
will not continue her residence here.
The genial doctor, also formerly of this
place, needs no introduction to our
citizens, as he is well and favorably
known. He is an industrious and an
upright young gentleman, having com
pleted his course in medicine last
spring. He located at Woodlawn,
where he has built up a steady prac
tise. Dr. and Mrs. Van Wert will be
"at home" to their many friends after
January 15th, at Woodlawn. The
PRESS extends its heartiest congratula
tions and best wishes.
At 8 o'clook last evening, Miss Cora
Belle LafFerty, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Joseph Blair Lafferty, became
the bride of Mr. Elmer E. Burlingame,
formerly of this city, but now engaged
in business in Johnsonburg. It was
one of the prettiest weddings ever
solemnized in Altoona. The cere
mony took place at the home of
the bride's parents, 1219 Thirteenth
avenue, the Rev. H. L. Bowlby, pastor
of the First Presbyterian church, and
the Rev. Dr. E. li. McCau ley, pastor
of Grace Lutheran church, where the
bride is a member, officiating. Miss
Helen Lafferty, a sister of the bride,
was the maid of honor, and Miss
Margaretta Blanchard, of this city,
was the bridesmaid. Mr. James Kil
gore, Jr., of the Altoona Trust com
pany, and Mr. Dana T. Ackeriy, of
New York, attended the groom, as
usher and beßt man, respectively.
The bride was gowned in white
satin, trimmed with princess lace.
Her maid of honor wore pink brocade
and Miss Blanchard's gown was of
white silk grenadine over pink messa
line. The house decorations were in
charge;of Mr. Wbithred, aud the home
was tastefully decorated with white
and pink roses, palms and ferns, with
hangings of white and pink.
A reception and wedding supper fol
lowed the ceremony and the bridal
party and guests were served by
Caterer Fisher, of Huntingdon. Mu
sic was furnished at the wedding and
during the evening by Professor J.
Mahlon Duganne's orchestra.
After the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs.
Burlingame departed for New York,
where they will spend their honey
moon. .They will reside in Johnson
Miss Lafferty was a teacher in the
Irving school, Lexington avenue and
Second.street, and was held in high
regard by the school authorities and
students. Mr. Burlingame, until quit
ting tthe school world last summer,
was principal of the Irving building.
Among the many beautiful presents
received by the bride and groom is a
large cut glass plate, given by the
teachers of theilrving school. Altoona

License Court.
Argument and License Court was
liold hore last Monday afternoon. llou.
Harry Alvan Hall, President Judge,
and Associates, lions, tl :o. ,!. Laßar,
and Jolin A. Wykoff, presiding.
All licenses for Shippen, Emporium,
Driftwood and Gibson were granted,
including the new application, (Sizer
Springs House,) were granted.
All applications from Lumber were
held over, as was the Mountain House
at Sinnamahoning.
Judge Hall has plainly laid down
the law to applicants for licenses, em
phatically impressing on them that
they must not sell to men of known
intemperate habits, or to those under
the influence of liquor. The Courts of
the State seem determined to enforce
the law governing the said of booze.
Recently at court held at Ridgway
Judge Hall called all applicants for li
cense to appear before him and made
plain the fact that if they desired li
censes granted tliey would have to
obey the law. They must not sell li
quor on Sunday, nor to minors, and he
laid special emphasis on the matter of
selling to men of known intemperate
habits, and to those who were visibly
under the influence of liquor. These
two points the judge was emphatic
Game License Law.
An effort will be made by the Game
Commissioner to secure the passage
of a license tax bill, requiring every
hunter to pay SI.OO per capita a year,
it is estimated that from 100,000 to 150,-
000 resident hunters frequent the hunt
ing grounds. At §1 per head the rev
enue would amount to several times
the commissioner's biennial appropria
It is also argued that a hunter wear
ing a number, which is registered will
exercise more care than is now the
case, and that violations of the game
laws and the accidental shooting of
people will become less frequent.
Taken lo Hospital.
Weduesday morning, Mr. Murdiek
McNeil, of Rich Valley, was taken to
the hospital at Ridgway, suffering with
an attack Of appendicitis Mr. McNeil
has been in poor health for the past
month, but last Friday he was taken
suddenly worse and Dr. Bush was has
tily summoned to his home. Mr.
Frank J. Lewis, of Rich Valley, accom
panied Mr. McNeil to the hospital.
Passed Examination.
Miss Ethel Fisher, of Howard Siding,
passed a tfery successful examination
in telegraphy at Renovo last Monday.
She has been under the competent in
struction of her mother and was well
prepared to meet the requirements.
Mrs. Fisher has very ably tilled the
position as operator at Howard Siding
for nineteen years and is thoroughly
dependable in every way. We con
gratulate Miss Ethel in her success and
hope that she may be stationed near
town. At present she is doing relief
work on Third Trick at Howard Sid

IT. W. Smith Purchases Hotel
Last week a deal was consumated
whereby Harry W. Smith became the
proprietor of the Hotel Goodyear
again. Owing to the sudden death of
Charles D. Weed, the bouse was left
without a landlord, and Mrs. Weed
did't feel able to assume the responsi
bilities of its management, and know
ing the value or the property Mr.
Smith was prompt in making a proposi
tion which resulted in adding one more
popular hotel to his chain. This gives
ti> Mr. Smith three of the best hotels
in this section of the country- The
G odyear, at Austin; The Warner at
Emporium, and the Clinton at Renovo,
and those who know the gentleman
know that he can successfully conduct
three as easily as one.
Walter R. Phelps of Buffalo, with his
mother and sister, have been installed
in tho Goody car, who, under the tutor
ship ot Mr. Smith, will make this hotel
as popular with the traveling public
as it ever has been in the past .
Mr. Smith's many Austin friends are
pleased to know that he is again inter
ested in our town.—Austin Autograph.

Attracts Attention.
We are gratified that the 28-page edi
tions of the PRESS issued just before
Christmas has attracted wide attention
and very favorable comment made by
ueighboring editors, many of our sub
scribers and especially our advertisers.
The following from the Port Allegany
Reporter is right to the point:
"Emporium is getting considerable
merited attention just now by reasou
of the holiday advertising campaign
inaugurated by the business men of the
Catreron county capital in their local
papers. Emporium merchants are
only doing what business men of other
towns will have to come to. Three
years ago there wasn't a better mail
order towu in western Pennsylvania
than Emporium. It's merchants had
neglected to keep the people posted ou
their stocks and the favorable prices.
There was space to sell in local papers
aud the mail order bouses bought it.
But the merchants united in demand
ing attention of the people whose pat
ronage ought to come to the town, and
now Emporium is spoken of as one of
the hustling business centers in the
upper Susquehanna basin. Here's to
the Emporium business mon who read
the writing on the wall and then
erased it with the publicity sponge.
These sponges can be secured at the
newspaper office in any town "
That the persistent advertising in
the Pit KHS lias set our readers thinking
seriously on the mail order house
proposition is very evident from the
lact that we are compelled to turn
down some flittering propositions and
shall continue to do so as long as the
home merchants mauibwt a disposition
to wake up aud let the light shine
through our columns. The time lias
long since passed when I lie merchant
can lean back in his chair, expecting
the trade to come his way, unless lie
IIH«.« printers' ink liberally, Every
successful I merchant is a liberal adver
tiaee, every day or every week.

liant colored Santa Claas overskirt.

WASHINGTON, January 10.— The an
nouncement that Representative Mit
chell Palmer, of Stroudsburg, will be a
member of the House Committee on
Ways and Means should be highly
gratifying to those Pennsylvania Re
publicans, who, deceived by the cam
paign of slander against the head of
the Republican ticket last fall support
ed the candidates of the Keystone
Party. As a member of that Commit
tee Mr. Palmer will assist other Demo
crats in preparing a bill that will pro.
vide the sort of tariff' revision Penn
sylvania lias voted against in every
campaign in which the protective prin
ciple has been even remotely involved.
Mr. Palmer, although a man of some
ability, was not selected as a member
of the Ways and Means Committee be
cause of any especial qualifications for
the work of revising the tariff. His ap
pointment will be due to the desire of
the Democratic leaders to recognize
the large vote recorded against the Re
publican party in Pennsylvania in the
receut elections. Champ Clark and
other Democrats who will dominate
the House in the next Congress be
lieve, or say they believe, that the re
sult of the Pennsylvania elections in
dicated dissatisfaction with the pro
tective system ar.d a disposition on the
part of the Keystone State to attach it
self to the Democratic party.
The candidacy of Mr. Berry proved
entirely satisfactory to the Democracy.
In the Fifty-Ninth Congress, whic'i as
sembled in December, 1905, the Penn
sylvania delegation was composed of
thirty-one Republicans and one Demo
crat. The solitary Democrat had been
elected by a small majority in the
Berks Lehigh District, the strongest
Democratic district in the State. Since
then the Democrats have steadily in
creased their representation and in the
next House they will have a delega
tion of nine members. Throughout
the campaign last fall the people were
warned against the slanderous attacks
upon Representative Tener. From the
stump and by loyal Republican news
papers it repeatedly was stated that a
vote for the Keystone ticket would be
a vote for the Democratic party. De
spite this waruing a considerable ele
ment of the Republican party support
ed the Keystone candidates. Their
votes did not elect Mr. Berry. They
did, however, elect nine men who will
speak and vote against the advance
ment of Pennsylvania. The Tariff
bill the Democratic party in the llouso
will pass will strike a blow at the in
dustry in that state. It may or may
not become a law. If it should not its
failure will be due entirely to the fact
that in the Senate are loyal Republi
cans, who are still fighting for the
maintenance of the tariff system which
has enabled Pennsylvania to attain in
dustrial supremacy. The Keystone
State may congratulate itself upon the
fact that it will not be misrepresented
in the Senate. Senators Penrose and
Oliver are protectionists without a
flaw Their influence will be exerted
in an effort to prevent the destructive
tariff' legislation, which will be pro
posed by the House Democracy, to
which liedy Pennsylvania, as a result
of Mr. Berry's "victory" was so sub
stantial a contributor.

dressing the Sunday school, "I want to
