attention of our farmer friends to the
agricultural pages of the Dkmocrat. The

orally discussed and deserve attention.
—December, tho last month of the year, j
j was ushered in yesterday. It is a month i

We love summer best, but there are some— ;
even poets —to whom December is the fa- ;
vorite month of the year. For instance,

> —The Jewish Feast of Chanuka began
i on Saturday last and will continue for
I eight days. This feast is in commemora
tion of the victory of tho Jews over the
Greeks, who had captured Jerusalem and
■ desecrated the temple. While tho Greeks
L had possession of tho holy city the young
t men of Israel, exhorted by their priests,
. rose up ngainst their oppressors, and under
• the leadership of the bravo Maccabeus
i drove them out and regained possession of
i both the city and ttio temple. In orthodox
F synagogues and in the houses of those who
i still remain faithful to the old traditions
• small wax tapers are lighted on each evon
i ing of tho fustival, commencing with one
- on the first evening and adding one aildi
i tional taper each evening until on the last
night eight tapers are lighted. We be-
Hove that the Israelites in this community
are not accustomed to observe this feast.
a few minutes before tins town clock pealed
forth the hour of 12 on Monday night the
unusual cry of Ure, sent upward hv u half
dozen lusty lungs, was heard resounding
through the streets of this place. A bright
light was visible from the eastern extrem
ity of Ilishop street, and was reflected
hack by the cloud-cupped November sky.
The Logan lioso cart was whirled along
over tho slippery streets to the scene of
the conflagration, which was found to ho
Mr. James O'Brien's frarno cabinet shop
on Ridge street, half way between High
and Ilishop streets. The fire had guined
too much headway to ho subdued, but as
tho building occupied a position quite a
distance from any other structures, the
flumos were easily prevented from spread
ing. The building was soon burned to the
ground with all its contents, consisting of
two or three sets of furniture, a few coffins
and a lot of carpenter tools. Mr. O'Brien's
loss is slight and is fully insured. Tho
origin of the lire is unknown.
The subject of this notice—tho father of
Mrs. John Spatiglcr—died at tho residence
of Sheriff Hpanglcr, in this place, on Sat
urday evening, November 27. Mr. Itergar
was horn at Norristown, Montgomery
county, on May IK, 1801. At tho time of
his death his home was at Globe Mills,
Snyder eountv. Mr. Bergar, who had
well nigh reached the good old ago of
eighty years, was visiting his daughter in
this place, having arrived about one week
ago. He made tho journey from his home j
at Globe Mills, Snyder county, to Belle
| fonte, without any apparent inconvenience
!to himself. About two days after his ar
: rival, however, ho complained of a chill
! and grew rapidly worse. From day to
j day his illness became more *evero, not
' withstanding the most untiring efforts of
his friends toward his recovery, hi* death
'• resulting at the time above mentioned,
1 after an exceedingly brief illness. His rc
; mains were conveyed to hi* late home in
Snyder county on Monday, where the
' funeral occurred on Tuesday. The friends
i of the deceased in this ucini'y, to whom
j the T-AD occurrence was a severe shock, HC
j companied the remains to his late home in
| Snyder county. The death ol Mr. Bergar
! is tile more distressing, following as it does
i so soon upon that of hi* wife, which oc
curred only two months ago, at the ago of
peventy-cightyonr*. To the afflicted friends
I w extend our lincerest condolence.
THE G. A. It. AT LKMONT. —A new I'o.-t

—(lnly one day of the kind for Bellefonte
since 1870. In some respect* different and
it is hoped also better than any Sunday
school day yet enjoyed in Centre county.
For tho lirst time Rev. John 11. Vincent,
I). !>., of New York, Chairman of the
International Sunday-school Committee,
will be present to give us his best service*
throughout that day. Not only Sunday
school workers, but all of u* alike need
the benefit that will be offered on Friday t
Peeembrr 17 th. by the County Sunday
school Association. One third of tho pop.
ulation of Centre county is outside of the
Bible School on the Lord's day.
M ore than one-half of the precious souls
living nniong us arc yet unsaved, "having
no hope and without God in tho world."
It is certain that these thousands will re
main awny from the Saviour as long asthey
live uninterested in "the truth as it is in
Jesus." By united Christian effort, we
must seek to interest them "in tho word
of Lifo." "Laborers together with Owl,"
is it saying too much that wo ought at
least to devote one day in united and pray
erful consultation over these momentous
interests? Let us thon come together thus
that wo may go forth and work together
more intelligently, moro devotedly, and
more effectively in efforts to bring to tho
Saviour thoso thousand* unsaved in Centre
county. C.

—Ever since the day# when Nimrod
roamed through primeval forests in quest
of gamo, it has been generally uccepted an
un incontrovertible fact, that as loon an a
man indulges in the noble iport of hunt
ing, he becomes without effort or design a
smooth, oily, graceful urid accomplished
falsifier of the truth. It seems strange, but
it is nevertheless true. There uppears to
be a subtle alchemy which transmutes the
most truthful man in the world into an
utterly irresponsible person when he is
railed upon to relate his experience with
the gun. The truth of this axiom re
ceived a sturtling corroboration right here
in our midst one day last week. W. A.
Sweney bad for severul days been making
elaborate preparations for carrying death
and destruction to all the rabbits in this
part ot the country. Small boys could bo
constantly seen leading scraggy looking
dogs into hia billiard room for bis inspec
tion. lie spent hours in burnishing the
barrels of bis gun until they fairly flashed
in the sunlight. At last all wus in readi
ness and ori l-t Saturday he, accompanied
by his friend Win. 11. I'oulton, moved
upon the enemy, Pleasant Gap was select
ed after much thought and cure as the
scene of hi* initial campaign. All day
the faithful Sweney, bis friend and his
pack of hounds roamed over the moun
tains and fields immediately surrounding
Haag's, but without success. As the
lengthening shadows told of the fast ap
proaching night, Sweney reluctantly turn
ed his buck upon the ungrateful rabbits
which refused to come out and be shot, arid
sorrowfully wended bis way toward borne- '
\ islons of inquisitive people who would '
call to inquire what success ho had, came -
unbidden to his mind. His position was
not to be envied. lie had started in the '
morning flushed with high hopes, lie
came back wearing "sorrow's crown of
sorrow..lut at this juncture lie met a ;
specimen of the small boy who had iri bis
possession two live rabbits which be had
caught in a trap. A brilliant idea almost
took Sweney off his feet. He would buv
the animals, slaughter them and return to
town in triumph. The bargain was at
once concluded and Sweney prepared for
hi* bloody work. I'oulton suggested that
it would bo more humane to untie tire
rabbits' leg* and give them a chance. This
was accordingly done and I'oulton killed
the lir*t one before be Imd gotten twenty
feet away. The next was released and
both barrels of Sweney s gun were dis
charged, the shot tearing up the earth as if
it had been suddenly struck by a northern
cyclone. AN hen the smoke cleared away
the rabbit w i- discovered sitting graceful
ly on its hirnl leg* looking right up in
Sweney's fuce. The dogs now caught the
innocent animal and Sweney cut its
throat. lie came home and told without
a blush how he had killed lioth these rab
bits on the top of the mountain. Sweney
I swore bis friend to secrecy, but truth crush
ed to earth will get right up and have it*
! say.
A majority of our exchanges are ap
parently almost prostrated with gushing
sympathy over the disagreeable position in
which Colonel Sarn Wilson, the sheriff
' elect of Lycoming county, is now j.laced.
! He enters upon his duties on January 8
arid must perforin the solemn and fearful
1 act of hanging George Smith and Mrs.
Miller on the nth of the same month—
three days after becoming sheriff. None
can feel more sensitively than ourselves
the horror with which one must contem
plate the act of hurling a fellow being
j into eternity, and we deeply sympathize
j with Col. Wilson and with sheriffs all
over our land who are called upon to exe
cute this extreme penalty of the law. Hut
Col. Wilson was elected with the knowl
edge that he must perform whatever the
obligations of the office require ; if the
Governor should grant a reprieve, it would
hut delay justice and not remove the obli
gation. If the duty must he performed,
the time in which this sad event occurs, in
our opinion, alleviates rather than in
creases its horrors. When a distasteful
duty devolves upon us, the sooner it is
performed the IwHter for all concerned.
If the day of execution should be post
poned a month or two, Col. Wilson would
only have a longer lime in which to con
template the sad <Unoucmeni. A stav of
execution will not aid the sheriff in the
least, for a thousand years' occupancy of
the office would not reconcile a really sen
sitive person to the trying ordeal.
—The axo works belonging to Mr.
James Mann, brother of our townsman
Fearon Mann, Ksq , and located at Heeds
ville, Mifflin county, were partially con
sumed by lire on Tuesday night of last

regarding the Uro from the columns of the

Tuesday night aWit midnight, a Are

totally destroyed, together with all of
their contents. • * * # q|, e
loss on the building*, machinery and slock,
is heavy, and perhaps will reach $.">0,000
or $60,000, which, rumor says, is fully
covered by insurance. The buildings will
be rebuilt at once, and Mr. Mann has ar
ranged the work so that his excellent em
ployes will not hnvn to lose any time,
which is very considerate at this time of
the year.
