MX. EDITOR:— The good people of the
county, and especially those from our
side seecm altogether unconcerned about
a candidate for County Commissioner.
It is an offlce'of vast importance, and
should be filled by honest, reliable, hard
working men—men who earn their bread
by the sweat of their brows, and know
how t > dispose of the county money, as :t
should be, and not squander it, as is some
times the case. In presenting a man to
the people, who is fully worthy of a liber
al patronage, aud one who would make a
good officer as well as a shrewd business
man, 1 could think of none better quali
fied nor none more werlhy t than Mr.
F. F. Jamison, of Gregg. Mr. Jamison
has not said anything as regards tbe| nom
ination whatever, but 1 trust, if the citi
zens of Centre county would see fit to
nominate him, he would not refuse to
serve them if elected He has never held
any office of interest in the county, not
withstanding he.has done more for the in
terest of the party, than the majority of
those who hold office have, and aside of
atl this he is a man that make* his living
by laboring hard. We ask nothing more
than our right, nnd if that is looked to as
it ought to be, wo feel sure that such a
man will receive more than passing no

ardently devoted to his county, a friend

advocate of the Lewisburg, Cenlte Jc

of hoary-headed sager who will bring
forward wise coun-els from the history of

on futurity and shapes his course accord

A party from Milesburg made their ap

they remained until night, and instead of
base ball had a grand hop at Sheriff Mus

very abundant at a number of points far
cast at the former scene of activity. Even
in this city several gardens arc overrun
with them. All the damage late comer*

hatch out millions of devastating insects
for another year. It is now absolutely
certain that other Slate* than this will
complain of the scourge next year, and if
the clouds of insects continue the present

will not escape.
