—The pin manufacturer* of the United
States have formed a strong combination
and advanced the price of these useful
little articles. This will prove sad news
for the ladies. For if there is one thing
more peculiar than another about the
apparel of a woman, it is the number of
pin* she uses. But, although fancy prices
are demanded for pins, It is a great source
of consolation that groceries cannot ad
vance. Bechler remains firm and always
sells choice, fresh groceries at prices which
defy all competition.

among whom they cast their fortunes for
that week are horses for their officers,

—Notwithstanding tho very disagreeable
state of the weather on Saturday and
Sunday last, the attendance at all the ses
sion- of tho Y. M. C. A. local convention,
was decidedly encouraging. The good
people of Centre Hall, being enlightened
as to tho object and aim of tho Association,
were drawn toward it by the tender bond
of sympathy. As a rusult, many persons

support. A collection for tho benefit of
the Centre Hall Association was taken up
on Sunday evening, reaching about eight !

pile of soiled garments lying on the floor,
und looked in vain for his fine broadcloth

—The internal appearance of 8. A. Brew
& Son's grocery has very much improved
during the past week. The proprietors
have become victims to the "rage" for im

This store is patronized by a large number
of buyers, and the Brews—both father and

HK!.LKK,TI!F. M aoiciax.—lt has been so
long since a genuine first-clas* magician
has visited this town that the appear
ance of the famous wizard, Heller, in Rcy. j
nolds' Hall to-morrow (Friday) evening,
will be received with pleasure. Ho Is an
nounced for but one exhibition, and those
desiring to witness his marvelous tricks of
slight-of-hand must take that opportunity.
He will give away some beautiful and
valuablo presents, consisting of sett of
furniture, lounges, silver-plated tea sets,
dress patterns, Ac. Every person will
draw something at there are no blank
tickets. The entertainment ftsclf will be
wonderful and worth a dozen times the
price of admission, which has been placed
at the moderate sum of 26 and 86 cents.
—Tho return of house-cieaning season
i* again at hand. Clouds of dust are float
ing through the air as carpels arc being
beat or shook in the rear yard. The man
with the whitewash brush smiles as lie plies
the brush along the ceiling for twenty
cents a coat, and the painter laughs
aloud as he covers tho soiled walls with
paper and paint. The "man of the house"
trie* to smile, but miserably fails, as ha
beholds the extensive and savory dinners
of mince pie, plum pudding and turkey
have now given place to whatever may be
most hastily and easily served. Beneath
his feet is the bare floor, upon tho table
arc boiled potatoes, bread and butter and
preserves, in the next room Is the ceaseless
din of the scrubbing brush, and the odor
of soap suds pervade* his nostrils. Oppo
site him is his wife who Is only posßive
about one thing—that she will work herself
to death before the house-cleaning it over.
At night he finds his bod removed from
its usual position to the other side of the
room, while the bureau has vanished en
tirely. ITi* wife thinks the new arrange
ment will improve the appearance. For
tunately for the maintenance of reason
on her' throne, this distracting state of
affairs only continues for a short time.
Then the wonder is how the same old
house and furniture can be to improved at
sucli slight cost. The out-door atmosphere
has been admitted todrivo forth the musty,
laey air of winter, and tha sweet sense
that a pure and healthy home hat been
re-established for another year takes pos
session of the mind.

C'KNLHK COUNTY PEOPLE IN THE WE*-
TERN CYCLOX E.— The now* of tho appall
ing disaster which brought death and dis
tress, weeping and mourning into every
home in the beautiful and thriving little
town of Marshfield, Webster county, Mo.,
wa* startling and terrible wherever it war
heard, but to many, even in our own
county, it wa* *ud in the extreme, becauae
of parent* or sister* or brother* who had i
emigrated to that western town and were i
victim* of the universal deatruction.
Through tho courtesy of a friend redding j
in the vicinity of Marshfield, we have re
ceived a copy of the Webtter County Newt, j
one of the two newspaper* published in ;
that ill-fated town—the one before u# being j
last Thursday's issue—which give# full and \
reliable particular* of the disastrous event, j
The town contained a population of \
eight hundred. Kighty were killed out
right, and two hundred were wounded, of ;
whom many are expected to die. A para
graph from an eye witm-M regarding the ,
storrn will prove interesting: "Sabbath I
day wa* cloudy, with a cool wind from the
west and southwest, with appearance of j
shower*. About 5 v. M. a heavy bank of *
black cloud* gathered in the *oulliwe#t and !
a* they concentrated it wa* evident that a i
storm wa* imminent, hut nono supposed j
that result* so horrible were in store for
us. Within a few minutes of OP. M. many
were startled by a loud roar in the south- i
west, and upon look in;; a cloud wa* seen, j
funnel shaped, revolving from east to west !
with terrible velocity. The base of the j
cloud wu* black as night, the centre being
lit up a* by electricity, causing many, at
first sight, to think it a burning building.
Ibis awful bosom of destruction camo on
with great rapidity, struck the town of
Mur-hfield at the southwest corner, widen
ing and branching in its course, and
within thirty second* where stood our
beautiful town there was nothing but a
mass of rutns filled with the dead and
dying, and resounding with the cries of j
the maimed and wounded and the lamen
tations of the survivors who were left deso
late The cyclone proper was preceeded a
few moment* by a trembling sensation
that likened to mild shock* of earthquake,
which was quite apparent to those who
observed tbc phenomena closely. The
few moment* that preceeded the coming nj
the storm, after it* character wa* apparent
to those who noticed it, gave an opportu
nity to muny to seek place* of as great
safety as possible, but the great majority
were unaware of the proximity of danger
■ until it win upon tUc-m, or weroso *liick('ii
with terror a* to be utterly helpless. '
Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Wright arc the
first name# of Centre county |ople whom
we notice a* victims of the storm. Their
j frame house and barn wa* swept away and
they were killed outright. Mr. Henry
Bollinger, who we believe was once s resi
dent of this town, was killed, and Mr*.
Mary Bollinger is reported a* bruised and
There were several person* from Bedford
county, this State, who were either killed
or injured. Among them were, Mrs.
Hush, wife of Msjor J. L. Rush, who had
a limb broken and was otherwise seriously
injured, while their family of si* children,
who were in the house, were all more or
less injured ; and Charlie Chritnan, who
bad both arms broken.
SLROULAR AFFLICTION OP A YOFXO
j LADY.—"Truth is stranger than fiction,"
j and the following from the Lock Ilaven
I Daily Journal is among the things which,
though remarkable, is vouched for by per
sons who have seen the young lady. The
story run* thus:
At Wolfe # Store, Centre county, Pa.,
reside* a family named Minich, which has
for a mrn-.lw-r a young lady now aged
twenty-four year*, who ha*" never been
able to sit up a minute. From her infancy
the wa# afflicted with a remarkable growth
of the bead, the other part# of the b>dv
remaining slender and powerless. Instead
of the parietal bones uniting at the top,
they separated and the "soft spot" common
to children under one year, remains yet.
while the entire head is "elongated and ha*
a circumference about a* large as that of a
common peck measure. She is about five
feet in length and has spent all her days in
the cradle. It is impossible for her to
raise her head by any muscular exertion,
and she require* the aatno attention that
was necessary when a mere baby. She is
quite sensible and converse* with members
of her own family, but is exceedinglv
averse to stranger*. The eye of curiosity
*o often obtained upon unfortunate foing*
of thi* class, cause* her to wince and blush
and giveother signs of uneasiness, showing
a native sensitiveness. Bhe seems to bide
her wearisome situation with a resignation
seldom found in the human kind.
DEATH or Man. JULIA LOKH.—From
the Morning JViswf, of Monday, wo learn
that Mr*'. Julia Loeb, widow of the late
Anselm Loeb, for many year* a resident of

John Boob. Although the nuet strenuout
efforts were put forth by the people of
Baileyville to supprcw* the fiatr.e*, the
appliance* at hand were found inadequate
to the occasion, and in a few moment* th*
house was in ruin# Most of the content#
of the bouse were saved. The adjoining
residence, occupied bv Dr. Van Trie#, wa
in imminent danger, and wa* only aved
by the persistent and united effort# of the* 1
who came to the rescue.*
