one of theso sty* must bo situated, and
every evening the gentle fragrance from it
is wafted upon the twilight air, making

those who are sitting on their porche*

that Htood on top of thu hill, from whoiui
root* the oarth had heen removed, elicited

a desire to atop nnd enjoy it* pleuauiil

ping the home and hud gone it short dis
tance beyond the tree when down it came
with n tremendous crash behind them. Of
course, the young Indie*, when they real
ized their deliverance, were very thankful
the hor*o had not obeyed their command.
It ia raid that no wind wn* blowing whon
the treo fell, and it wn* owing to an Insuf
llcieney of earth around the root* that

them Mr. Simon M. Spangler, who
attended the picnic of the Veteran (dub
at Pleasant (lap on Saturday. We also
re-call Mr. John lloaterman, Mr. Jasper
Wolf, and the venerable Jared Fullmer.
We were exceedingly glad to learn that
Mr. Fullmer has at last been granted a
|H-n>ion by the government. His ease wa
a very deserving one, surrounded a* it wa*
by circumstance" that made a strong appeal
to sympathy. Two line boy*—William

self and a blind wife, were taken from
him during the war. Those brothers wore
members of Company A, of the I4Btli
Pennsylvania Regiment, and lx>th yielded

—The Haltimorean, of a late date, prints
. a bright, gossippy letter from lis Belle
i fonle correspondent, who is supposed to
have been a young lady from the South
1 who spent the summer with u*. The lct
j ter is very readable, treating as it doe* of
i Bellefonte, it* people and their manners,
its buildings, public and private, and then
branches off In a racy, discriptive style to
tell about visits paid to various points of
interest in the surrounding country, chief
among which was an early morning ascen
sion to McCoy 's lookout, which wa* made in
company with a party from the Brockerhoff
House. The discrtplion of this fsmou*
view is very fine, and the letter as a whole
is well calculated to give the |>eople of the
" Sunny South"a very good idea of the
eternal hills among which we live. If

—At the picnic, of the Veteran Club, it
was our pleasure to accept an invitation to
dinner from Abram V. Miller, and such a
feast of good things as ho set before his
many guests! Why, it was enough to
tempt the appetite of the most rigid and
abstemious anchorite that ever lived. We
noticed (len. Blair, Mr. David Oilliland
| and other friends at the same table, and we
think Mr. Miller had no reason to complain
that full justico was not done to his bounty.
Other table* that we saw in the immediate
neighborhood were just as generously sup
plied with the substantial* and the luxuries
of life, and were partaken of with the same
relish and pleasure. The veterans will
not soon forget tho kindness of their gen
erous entertainers of Pleasant Cap. The
ladies are especially deaerving of the most
sincere thanks.
—A communication from Mr. D. M,
Lieb appear* on the fifth page of this
issue. While we have not given the sub
ject any further consideration than have
our contemporaries, we think the explana
tion given hy Mr. Laib in regard to the
motive of the Board in securing the ser
vices of Mr. Duncan for instructor in
"Language and History" will be found
sufficiently clear and satisfactory and that
the action of the Board will be considered
by all a* eminently proper.
—The printers' picnic atCreason on Sat
urday was largely attended and exceeding
ly enjoyable. The delegation of forty or
more which proceeded from this place ail
axpreaa themselves as highly satisfied.
—-We learn that Rev. W. A. Blggart,
of the Baptist church, has received and ac
cepted a call from a church in the Weat

Annual Reunion and Basket Picnic of the
Veteran Club of Centre county was held iti
(Little'a drove, Pleasant (lap, on Saturday,
September 0, IH7, and was more largely
attended than any proceeding one, it being
estimated that ut least twenty-live hundred
persons were U|K>II the ground. Tho weath
er was all that could be desired. The ex
ercise* though comparatively brief wore
interesting and the good order and cordial
feeling which prevailed would have reflect
ed credit upon u religious instead of a
merely social gathering. The picnic of tho
Veteran Club may now he regarded a* one
of the social irutifution* of Centre county.
Tho line was formed at the intersection
of tho Turnpike with the Hub
lersburg road about 10 A. M , when the
procession moved ut once along the turn
piko toward tho grove. A number of
evergreen arches decorated with flags and
appropriate inscriptions of welcome span
ned the route at proper interval*. Delega
tions wi-ro in attendance from almost every
part of the county. Those from Centre
Hall, Lomont, and Pine Orove Mill* were
accompanied by their respective bras*
humls, and the Bellefonte delegation wa
headed by the /ion cornet hand. The
Pleasant (sap band was also out in force
and contributed much to the pleasure of
tho occasion and the comfort of their mu
sical brethren.
Arriving at the sje-akers' stand about
three-quarters of an hour were devoted to
general greetings and to music by the
band* and a drum corpe from Curtin *
Works with "Tine" Uumbarger of the
148 th as lifer. At 11.15 a. m., President
Beaver called the meeting to older and
I prayer wa* offered by Rev. J. A Wood,
Jr., pastor of the M. K. church. The ad
dress of welcome was delivered by Rev
Jacob Yutzv, of the Lutheran church,
snd was responded to on behalf of the
| Club by the President. The minutes of
last meeting were read and approved, and
were followed by tbo "roll call,'' an < vent
which showed how fast the survivors oi
: the late war are pas-ing away, more than
; half a score of the members of the Club
having already gone to join their comrades

of Pleasant (Sap and vicinity *ecmi to
have made preparations to hare entertain
ed the entire assemblage. Nearly every
resident of the neighborhood had provided
a large and bountifully spread table, and
the chief source of anxiety on the part of
the hosts seemed to lie to And a sufficient
number of guests to share their hospitality -
A number of the tables were handsomely
decorated with beautiful epergnei of fruits
and flower* and were spread with dinners
that would have reflected credit upon a
first-class hotel. We hope the kind host
esses were in a measure repaid for their
labor hy seeing bow heartily their guests
enjoyed themselves.
At 2.30 r. M., tho meeting was again
called to order. The report of the Treas

tho evils of war and upon the era of pros
perity upon which the people of the Unit

by Col. James Oilliland, formerly military
agent at Washington, for the Ktate of
Pennsylvania, whose kindness to Pennsyl
vania's soldier* and their anxious friends
will long lie gratefully remembered by its
recipient*. In concluding his remarks,
the Colonel assured the boys that whatever
he had tiesm able Pi do for them bad been
gladly done, and that be had done no more
only because "red la;*;" bad prevented birn.
President Jicaver then introduced Mr.
F. 11. Allen, formerly of the 4th Wisconsin
Infantry, but now chief of a section in the
Invalid Division of the Pension Office, ft*
a representative of what the community is
accustomed to regard as "red taj.e," some
thing which though at lime* on inconven
ience individually, is nevertheless u neces
sity to us in our collective capacity. Judge
Ailen rescinded briefly in some appropriate
remarks, his story about the letter from the
hank cashier who insisted that while the
itI.ACK TAi'lh abounded in Sumatra and
other tropical regions, the HKI> TAI-KR was
principally confined to the District of Col
umbia, creating much merriment, lie also
spoke very warmly of the hospitable treat
ment received by the regiment of which he
was a member, when marching to the
front, at the hands of the citizens of Wil
liams|>ort and Harrisburg, and assured the
audience that in Wisconsin as well as in
Pennsylvania Gov. Curtin was best known
as "tho soldiers' friend."
The attention of members oi the club
I and their citizen friends) was called to the
I propriety and importance of securing cotn
: plete lists of all deceased soldiers of tbo
late war whose graves are not marked by

masler-General hy whom the headstones

A vole of thanks was also tendered to
