them so much kindness op the occasion of

Hood as a frontispiece to his great book on
the war, which wu* the result of some four
year*'preparation. The hook is beautiful
ly prepared with clour new tyje, best of
paper, line illustration*, and not unworthy
of the studio of the historical student or
the boudoir of the fashionable lady. The

have greatnw* thrust upon thorn, and
some achieve greatness, hut Mr. Toller
was evidently born to keep a hotel, and

—As this is the idylic season when gen
ial sun*, the sweet scent of numberless
flowers and all the beautiful accessories of
spring tempt the voting and trusting to all
sorts of pleasure, both on sea and land, it is
not surprising that a happy party of our
young folk were seen bravely daring the
tempestuous waves of Mann's dam one day
last week The air was delicious, the jwrty
happy and—the boat leaky. From intense
enjoyment the whole party suddenly took
part in a transformation scene and found
themselves safely deposited in the mud at
the feel of the treacherous waters. The
bottom had fallen out of the craft, and Mr,
.1. It. Van Ormer, Mis* Alice Van Ormer,
the Misses Seanlan, Mr. Kvorly and others'
were seen gracefully wending their discon
solate wav toward the shore. Moral—to be
continued next week.
—The Philadelphia Times seems to be
possessed of some reliable information
about Bellefonte churches, as a recent issue
of that journal contained the following :
" At Bullcfonte there are churches of
almost every persuasion except Baptist.
There i a Baptist organization four veer*
old, but it has no building. Service* have
been kept up in a rented house. A loca
tion ha* been obtained, for building and
subscription* have been made which are
not binding until the lot is secured. The
Baptist* are few in number but they are
strong in purpose."

TALLY.—A very sad accident happened to
Mr. John Kelley, son of Mr. Patrick Kcl
ley, of Hnow Shoe, on Thursday last, while
Hi work in mine No. H, at that place. He
was engaged in coupling ears, when the
force of the concussion made by the car*
coming together threw him down. Be
fore the train could he stopped, a heavily
loaded car passed over him, cutting otf his
right arm near the body. Dr. llibler, of
this place, was summoned to his assistance,
but found the unfortunate man too weak
to submit to an o|a-ration. The Doctor
could only administer to him such relief as
made his last hours pass more easily. He
lingered until Friday evening, when his
end came. He was about twenty-two years
of age.
and what might have proved a fatal event
occurred at Pleasant Gaji lu*t Thursday.
Mr. John It. Tate and hi* son, Mr. IV. S.
Pate occppy neighboring house* at that
place. Mr. \\ . S. Tate was the possessor of
a large and very ferocious coach dog, hut
it 'was not supposed that he would attack
any member of the family. On Thursday,
Mi* OHic, daughter of Mr. W. 8. Tale,
came from the residence of tier grand
parent* to enter that of her father. A*
she approached the porch upon which the
•log wa* lying, ho looked at her and ex
hibited evidences of anger. She spoke to
the dog kindly, wh-n he jumped at her,
threw her down and tut h.-r savagely upon
the ahn and body. Her mother ran to her
assistance and threw herself with all her
strength uja.n the body of the dog, drag
ging him from h--r daughter. MissOllie
hastened into the house, and it wa* with
difficulty that the savage canine wa* pre
vented entering after b< r. Since the event,
Miss Oi lie has been greatly prostrated from
the injuries together with thorn rv u* fright
received, but by this time has perhaps al
mo*t recovered. The dog was, of course,
shot, Mr. Flory sending the necessary
powder and hall through him.
OHITDARY.—The Morning AV-, of
Monday, alluded t•• the death ■ f Rev,
Thomas Barnhart, late of lb-d Oak, low a,
and, upon inquiry, we found it to he true,
and gleaned the following particulars of
his life and death ; lie wa* lairn in
Howard township, this county, lie be
came a minister in the M. K. church, and
during the Ib-tx-liion was performing pas
toral duties at Charnhersburg. When the
Southern soldier* occupied that place, they
took particular care to protect the life and
possessions of Rev. Barnhart and family.
He afterward* preached at Tyrone and at
Philip*burg, this county. About Ave
years ago he removed to Red >ak, lowa,
when it wa* a mere collection of houses
surrounded by woods. It i now a place n|
Importance, and Rev. Barnhart at the
time of his death wa* Presiding Elder of
the Council Bluffs district. B.>mc time
since he received a stroke oi apoplexv, and
the usual remedies failing to relieve him,
he died on Saturday night, May 8, at alamt
11 o'clock. His (uneral occurred on the
following Monday. He would have lx-en
fifty-eight year* of age had he lived until
next fall. His life was eminently useful.
Much of it was spent in the service of hit
Master, and forms an example of piety and
consistency to his profession of which the
church nnd nation have reason to be proud.
He ha* numerous relatives in thi* county,
among whom is our townsman, Mr D. At
Kline. All will b-arn of hi* death with
profound regret.
nRi.i.KVONTR'a Knurr roa Mii.tox.—
True to her previous record and her usual
generous instincts, Bellefonte Hroused her
self lat Saturday to send immediate assist
ance to her suffering sister city of Milton.
As Bellefonte has been almost entirely ex
empt front disastrous fires during the past
six or eight years, the noble action of
Saturday was eminently appropriate. Be
sides, many of our cilireos have relatives
in that city who were among the sufferers.
It is worthy of note that the employes
of the Bush House, under the Inspiring
influence of the colored porter, Mr. Alfred
Stiles, a former-resident of Milton, imme
diately contributed from their own pockits
the handsome sum of slft.2s. Tlio Snow
Shoe railroad company generously sent
six barrel* of flour, two barrel* of bread
and one barret of hams by the early morn
ing train. A meeting of citir.en* was call
ed at the Court House at one o'clock r. m.
of which Chief Burgess Clem. Dale was
chosen President, Mr. (leorge 1/ Potter,
Secretary, and Judge John Irwin, Jr.,
Treasurer. Committees were appointed to
canvass the different wards and solicit
clothing, food and money. A suliecriplioii
paper was drawn up at the Court
by which s<lso were secures!. The cloth
ing was sent to the Snow Shoe depot, and
filled seven or eight large boxes, which
were tent at quickly as possible to tho
stricken city. A special meeting of the
Masonio Lodge was called for Saturday
evening, and that organisation acted with
it* usual promptness in administering to
tha wants of the suffering member* of the
order in Milton. The aggregate value of
the aid sent by Bellefonte to Milton doubt
less reached SI2OO or SISOO.
Philip Crider, an aged and respected resi
dent of Hnow Bhoe, died last Saturday
evening in his ninety-fourth year. His
son, Mr. P. B. Crider, resides near Lock
Haven, and his grandson, Mr. F. W.
Crider, is a prominent citizen of this place.
The intelligence of the aged gentleman's
decease readied Mr. Crider, at this place,
on Sunday morning, and he immediately
■started to Snow Shoe. On Monday he
accompanied the remains through this
place to liie residence of M r. P. 11. Crider,
near Lock Haven, where the funeral and
interment took place. The deceased had
been failing for u long time past and dur
ing the twenty .three days preceding iiis
death bad hardly been able to partake of
any food. He was one of the most aged
men in this county.
much was expected of the concert given bv
the Beliefonte Choral Society and Belie
fonte Orchestra on Tuesday evening was
evident by the large audience present, and
that the expectations were realized was
also attested by the many wold* of praise
with which all expressed the enjoyment
the evening's entertainment hud afforded
them. The programme was long and va
ried, and the selections were well executed.
The applause showed that the more simple
forms of music are tin* most highly appro
ciated, and the sweet solos and lively na
tional air* drew forth tie- most demonstra
tive expressions of pleasure. The solo,
''Pilgrim Father*,' by Mr. Frunk Keller,
was the llrst to arouse the enthusiasm of
the audience. The cornet solo "Young
America," was rendered in a skillful man
ner by Mr. Richard Willis, and when for
an encore he gave that divinely sweet air,
"Annie Laurie," another hurst of applause
ensued. "Sweet Heart," a lovely solo by
Sullivan, was given by M>s KateCnrtin.
This matchless gem was rendered in a very
artistic manner, and of course drew forth
an encore. The lady's musical abilities are
of a high order. Thesoio "Jut a- of Old,"
rendered by Mis- Clara Lyon, was also
well received and followed by an encore,
''The Las* of Kilkarney, if j>oe.-ible more

the matter on their mental balances.
The members of the Uridine and I/ogan

their re*|ective appropriations for the pres

Mr. Daniel Khodes offered to extend the
water pipe* on Linn street to M. W. Cow
drick's residence tor His offer was
accepted, and Mr. C. may expect soon to
have the cooling beverage from the spring
coursing to his residence.
The Itrockerhotf omnibus and the mail
wagon obstruct the passage over the bridge
on the arrival of train* and their owners
must hereafter occupy some other location.
But the army of travelers will doubtless
find the BrcH kerhoff bus, even if it has to
