—The Woman's Foreign Missionary
Society met at Mrs. John Ardell'son Linn
street last Friday evening.
—Peaches, watermelons *and green corn
are in the market. The former arc about
the size of an ordinary plum.
—We are just entering another season
of beautiful moonlight evenings. The
moon is exactly quarter full to-day.
—One feature of the Day Kidney Pad is
commendable, that nothing is claimed for
it, except what it will absolutely effect.
—Tho Chief and Assistant Burgesses
have each been submitting their business
places to a cleansing process—that of the
former receiving an application of paint.
—The Daily New* informs it* readers
that Mr. R. B. Kinne, of Milesburg, has
la-en appointed by Mr. Hayes as register
of the land office at Yakima, Washington
—There wa* a very small attendance at
churches and Sunday-schools on Sunday
last. Those who absented themselves found
a convenient, perhaps welcome, excuse in
tbe prevailing beat.
—The annual election of directors for
the Ironworkers' building at Valentines'
Forge took place last week. Three selec
tions were made from the employes and
two from the proprietors.
—Saturday evening last wa* a lively oc
casion for Snow Shoe. In addition to the
Cbinclala-moose House hop, the Korean
Catholic church gave a festival, which was
a pleasant affair and realized a largo
amount for the church.
Darkness reigned supreme upon the
streets of this place last Monday night.
The young moon retired behind the hills
at an early hour, and as the sky was cloud
ed and the gas not lighted, pedestrians had
no aid save that of natural instinct to guide
their feet over the rough pavement.
—A delightful hop was held at tho
Chinclala-moose House, Snow Shoe, on
Saturday evening last. The affair was
conducted by Bellefonte parties, but was
participated in by guests at the hotel and
residents of Snow Shoe. The music wa*
furnished by the string band of Snow
Shoe, and was considered excellent.
—Mr. Frank Gallagher, of Howard, *•%
unfortunate enough to lose bis fine young
cow, on Tuesday morning of last woek, by
"bloat," which was caused by eating too
freely of young clover. Mr. Gallagher is
a laboring man, and the loss falls heavily
upon him. He has the sympathy of his
—On Tuesday of last week two men
named Aikey and Hciland were severely
burned by the preinaluro explosion of a
blast at the ore banks of the Bellefonte
Iron Company. The explosion occurred
just after their return from dinner. The
injuries of Ueiland were the most serious,
and he will be confined for several weeks.
Aikey's injuries were slight.
—Mr. Shaffer's hotel at Howard was the
scene of a pleasant wedding on Wednesday

Miss Hannah Daughenbaugh and Mr.
Philip Iddings. Elder N. J. Mitchell

tions of happiness as they departed from
—Among the many curious citizens of
New York City is a Dr. Tanner, who is
fasting for a period of forty days—about
eighteen days of that time now being com
pleted. Such a ridiculous idea as this
would never occur to a man who has lived
long in Centre county. While there are
grocery stores selling such delicious gro
ceries as can he bought at Sechler A Go's
it would kill any average man to fast for
twelve hours. Try Sechler's groceries and
prove the truth of what we say.
—This is the best time to buy clothing
clump of Goldsmith, Stein & lluxter.
—The death of Mr. Samuel Moyer, of
Millhcim, occurred on Friday of last woek.
It was caused by consumption, of which
ho was a victim. Mr. Moyor was an ex
perienced miller, and for a long time had
operated tho large brick mill owned by
Mr. Daniel Musser. He was an excellent
man and his death will be much regretted.
—Prominent among the numerous festi
vals'now being held throughout the county
was one given by tho Methodists at Cur
tin's works on Saturday night. Fifty-two
dollars woro received as tho protlts of the
evening, which is an unusually good ex
hibit. "It is an ill wind thut blows no
one good," and the warm weather seems to
be principally beneficial for church festi
—Tho quite young children of Pleasant
Gap clubbed together last Saturday, wont
to the woods and enjoyed a picnic by
themselves, without the presence of any
older folks. "We'll bet thut so far as en
joyment was concerned, it was tho most
successful of tho season, for Young Amer
ica, with all the wild woods to roam over,
unrestrained, is not inclined to allow time
to hang idly on its hands.
—During tho present warm weather,
when articldfof diet do not keep fresh and
sweet long, people have to purchase fre
quently and in small quantities. The
hf-nt also renders it doubly important to
know where to find the freshest and best
food. So far as groceries are concerned,
that place is the storo of Sochlcr & Co.
I'oople can always place reliunce on the
fact that their stock is the best the market
—We are indebted to Prof. Henry Mey
er, our excellent County Superintendent,
for a copy of the programme of exercises
adopted for the meeting of the State Teach
ers' Association which will be held at
York, l'a., on tho 27th, 28th and 20th of
the present month. This meeting will
undoubtedly be one of much pleasure and
profit to the members of the association as
well as to all others who feel an interest in
the subject of education.
—The annual picnic of the Coleville
Sunday-school was held last Thursday in
the grove near Mr. Win. Humes' residence.
It was well attended, many visitors from
Bellefonte being present. Col. I). 11.
Hastings contributed to the plcai-ure of the
occasion with one of his entertaining ad
dresses. Of course, refreshments had been
provided in abundance, and tho day was a
inerry one to all who participated.
—The ice cream festival in the basement
of the M. E. church on Friday nnd Satur
day evening* of last week was another
successful affair. On Friday evening the
ice cream apd cake on hand was all sold,
while on Saturday evening, although
enough had been provided to meet all de
mands, the receipt* were quite liberal. The
cream not converted into ice cream wa*
utilized by being churned into butter.
—Eighty thousand dollars was the
amount subscribed to tho sufferers by the
Milton fire, and now the vexed question
is how to divide the money. Under the
circumstances, we are not prepared to offer
a solution to the problem, but if they lived
a little nearer Bellefonte, we would advise
that a hundred weight of groceries be
bought at S. A. llrew A Son's store for
every man, woman and child in the place-
It would be the best thing for their health
and happiness, as the people of Centre
county owe much of their present pro*j>er
ity to the existence of Brew's store.
—The equipment* of the Bellefonte Fcn
cibles (Co. B. filh Keg.) have been receiv
ed and are stored in their Armory in the
Bush Arcade. The men composing the
company aru well pleased with their out
fit, every thing being entirely new and in
excellent order. The guns, knapsack*,
cartridge boxes, belts,haversacks, Ac., have
never been used and are hand*omo and
convenient. The men are rapidly becom
ing proficient in the difficult manual of
arms and regulation tactics and will no
doubt—for the short time of enlistment—
make a suitable showing at the annual en
campment at Braddock* Field* in Septem
ber. The uniform* are contracted for and
we will soon have a fully equipped mili
tary organization in our midst of which
we can bo justly proud.
—The Executive Committee of the
Pennsylvania State Dental Society have
favored u* with a programme of their com
ing annual meating, which will be held in
this place on July 27, one week from next
Tuesday, and continue three days. There
are many exercises on the programme of
interest to the profession. We do not
know the proportions of the Society, but
opine from the programme that it is large,
embracing many distinguished members.
Then, these dentists, when they assemble
for consultation, have a pleasant custom of
bringing their wives and daughters along
for a summer recreation. While the pa
ternal members of the family are engaged
in discussing "Hydrobromic Ether as an
Amesthetic," or some other equally out
landish subject, the female portion may be
seen upon the street, their fair faces and
fine toilets adding to the beauty of the
scene. We hope tbey will all come and
bring an unusually large number of wive*
and daughters along, and that the meeting
may ba one of the most pleasant in the
history of the Society. Dentists have
heretofore boen principally useful in ex
tracting teeth—and that In the most ex
cruciatingly ptknful matter possible—but
If the coming meeting shall contribute in
rendering that dreaded operation one whit
easier a grateful public will open its arms
to them in enthusiastic welcome. The
meetings of the society will be held in the
A CHAPTER OP ACCIDENT#.— The first
terrible si>iisitii>ii of last week wan received
on Thursday morning, and wan the intelli
gence* that Mr. David Dale, living near
Lomont, had fallen into a vat of vitriol the
previous afternoon and almost perished in
the burning liquid. Further reports con
firmed the sad news. On "Wednesday after
noon he was at work in the wollen mills at
Lemont, of which he and his brother are
tbo proprietors, and while passing over a
board, it broke under his weight, precip
itating him into the vat of coloring matter
beneath. As the contents of the vat were
strongly impregnated with vitriol, the
fluid burned into his flesh, and for some
time his life was despaired of. liis broth
er, who is a physician, is attending him,
and ho is now Blowly recovering. His
suttering, of course, was intense.
—William Fellenbaum, son of Mr. John
Fellenbaum, was the victim of a terrible
accident last Friday afternoon, while at
work in Wm. P. Duncan & Co's machine
shops. lie was standing on a ladder ad
justing the belting on a pulley, when three
ilngors of his left hand were caught in the
revolving belt and his body drawn several
times around the shaft before the machinery
could bo stopped. His Angers wore literally
torn from the hand and the tendons lacer
ated to the wrist, which was broken. It
was un unfortunate accident, as William
was a bright, active, skillful workman for
one so young—only eighteen years of age
—and his hand will be rendered useless for
a longtime, and amputation may be neces
sary. Ho has our earnest sympathy.
—The second event of Friday which
can take its place in our "Chapter" was
the run-a-way of Mr. Lawrence Brown's
horses, which occurred about 4 o'clock p.
M. AVe don't know exactly where they
started from, but as they run with the
wagon clattering behind, a noise was made
equal to the descent of an avalanche.
Everybody in the neighborhood was
aroused, and when the team passed the
depot und ran out the road towards the
car works, the full force of employes at the
former place left their work and followed
wildly after the retreating steeds, which
soon resembled a speck of dust in the
distance. Near the car works, another
horse and wagon belonging to Duncan,
Hale & Co. was collided with, and the
horse ran over the hills, followed by an
excited multitude. All the animals were
soon caught, but Mr. Brown's wagon was
found in a sadly demoralized condition,
and was brought home in small pieces.
This event involved altogether too much
exertion for a hot day, and reused perrpi
ration to flow freely from both men and
—An accident occurred at Snow Shoe on
Saturday which resulted in the death of
Mr. Philip Crollman, an employe in the
mines. He was engaged in excavating
under a ledge of coal and tuck, which
loosened the props, and the entire mass,
probably without an instant's warning,
was dislodged and precipitated upon him.
He was removed from his terrible situation
and taken to his home, where be soon died
from internal injuries, although no bones
were broken. On Monday morning his
body was taken for interment to his former
place of residence in New York State. He
leaves a wife and several children. This is
thn first accident, resulting fatally, that
has occurred at the Snow Shoe mines in
Mr. John McDonough, of Snow Shoe,
was walking on the railroad near the Sum
mit on Saturday last, and sUqqted ofl" on a
siding to avoid an approaching train, not
|ierceiving that the switch was turned to
direct the train upon the track where he
was standing. Before he discovered his
danger the wheels of the engine had passed
over and crushed one of bis feet. Mr. Mc-
Donough is, we believe, the same man that
had one of his legs crushed some time ago
by railroad ties falling upon it.
—Saturday's Daily Mew* says that "a
three year old daughter of Mr. Henry
Sampsei, of Benner township, was kicked
in the head one day last week by a horse
which she had approached in the pasture.
She died from her injuries on Sunday, her
skull being very badly fractured."
RATIFICATION MKETINO AT MILLIIKIM.
—The sturdy Democracy of the lower end
assembled at Millheim, on last Saturday
evening, to ratify the nomination of Han
cock and English. The meeting was well
attended and was an oarnest of the spirit
that pervades the Democratic masses every
where in the land. John Keifsnyder, Esq.,
called the meeting to order and Daniel
A. Musser, Esq., was selected to preside-
Able and stirring speeches were made by
David F. Fortney and Wm. C. Heinle,
Esq's, which were well received and heart
ily applauded. The best of feeling pre
vailed and all the Democrats present gave
assurances that I'enn's Valley will this
fall give a larger vote to Hancock and
English than any Democratic candidates
ever received in that part of the county.
The meeting adjourned with hearty cheers
for the soldier-statesman.

THE CENRUH or CENTRE COUNTT. —The

have completed their work, and we pre
sent to the readers of the DEMOCRAT a
table of the population of each borough

ed for the decades of 1870, 1860 and iB6O.

increaso over 1870 of 3,011, or a little more
