proceeded from the explosion of a parlor
match lying on the floor.

EXPLORING A CAVE.— Almost evory
body has the pileasure of Hn acquaintance
with Francis Spoor, and almost everybody
is equally well aware what a sweet, inno
cent, romantic young gentleman he is.
His father, Mr. William Spcer, now re
sides at his country seat near the village of
Pleasant Gap, and Francis roams over the
broad domain following the inclination of
his own sweet will. His natural propen
sity to unearth and expose all that is evil
and to investigate the hidden mysteries of
nature and revelation have grown with his
growth and strengthened with his increase
of understanding since his residence at the
Gap, until they have attained such won
drous development as to lead him, a few
days ago, to institute a search into the hid
den underground recesses of u cavern,
which bus been located on his father's
farm from time immemorial and has for
an indefinite period been a source of curi.
osity to Francis' enquiring mind, lie was
unable to summon to his command Aind
din's wonderful lamp, so be provided him
self with a splendid lantern of improved
pattern with which to guide his steps as he
went on his dangerous errand into the
bowels of the earth. Like the wise vir
gins, he filled his lantern with that liquid
which oil merchants assert to he absolutely
non-explosive petroleum, polished the
glass until its crystal surface rivaled the
sun in brilliancy, and struck a light so
strong and bright as to put all the owls to
instant lliglit. Francis is of tender age,
and some boys would have hesitated before
undertaking such a project, but our vul
liant hero proceeded on his mission with
brave heart arid undaunted mien. As lie
took his course through the frosty ether of
that bright December day, be WHS a hero
whose equal has not been known since the
days when "the boy stood on the burning
deck." Visions of hobgobblins, genii and
evil spirits failed to make his heart quail
or to disturb his equanimity of mind. He
exulted in his prospective triumph over
the powers of darkness. At last he
reached the cavern's oj*,n mouth, and
boldly lowered bis lantern into the gloomy
depths never before illumined by the light
of day. He was just prepared to follow,
when a noise—quick, sharp and terrible—
proceeded from the interior of the cavern
and caused his face to blanch with fear.
Francis started hack, thoroughly frighten
ed. As he drew forth the lantern be found
the glass shattered into a thousand frag
ments. The foul intluenoes of the lower
world had gained an easy victory. Fran
cis owns himself defeated and has re
nounced his investigation for the present,
but his fertile mind is planning a fresh
attack, and woe to the powers of the
nether world when he tries it again.
RGR. W. O. WKlOllT. —According to
ap|>ointmcnt, says the I'hilipsburg Journal
Rev. W. O. Wright,of Mileshurg, preach
ed in thn Presbyterian ehuich last Sunday
morning. Although the morning was
quite unpleasant, a fair congregation was
in attendance. The reverend gentleman
preached a very earnest gospel sermon and
endeavored to impress his hearers with the
important fart, that his mission was to
preach Christ the crucified Saviour of the
world. Mr. Wright has received the unan
imous rail from l'hilipsbtirg and Morris
dale Mines congregations, to become their
pa-tor, which he accepts, conditioned, that
tin* Huntingdon Presbytery, to which
these belong, will transfer him fromMilcs
hurg, hts present charge, to Philipsburg.
In that event, he expects to enter upon
this field of work, about the beginning of
the New Year. Mr. Wright is a very
earnest and energetic worker, and will,
without doubt, work up this field in the
interests of the Presbyterian church, great
ly to its advancement, so that in a few
years' time it may become an independent
charge. He enjoys the confidence and
best wishes of this people in his new field
of labor.
—A bridal couple bailing from War
riors Mark arrived at the Rrockerhoff
House on a late train one day last week
and were assigned to room No. "Letter
B," just above the office. Shortly after
these "two souls with but a single thought,
two hearts that bent as one" had retired,
Clerk MeKeover, who was passing through
the hall, discovered that a strong odor of
gas pervaded the whole of the upper por
tion of the hotel. He immediately com
menced an examination and was soon con
vinced that the gas was escaping through
the transom of "Letter 11." He knocked
at the door and was greeted with an im
patient, "What do you want?" "How did
you put the gas out?" asked Mac. "Blew
it out, of course. How else would I put it
out?" It was explained to him that un
less ho found some other means of sum
moning dßrknes* hi- honeymoon would be
of short duration. After repeated failures
with the chandelier, the door was opened
and MeKeover, overcoming his natural
modesty, was com|iclled to enter and turn
off the gas. Hilence brooded over "Letter
IV' from that until morning.

21. Union vllle, Pa.
morning "bout 0 o'clock HN aloft silvery
light wa* chasing nway the sombre rem
nant* of night from the dusky brow of
Half Moon hill, a strange procession, com
posed of seven heavily ulslered and deco
rously quiet gentlemen, could be seen
laboriously wending its w ay to the summit.
The moon had disappeared, the stars were
waning, the fleecy clouds were rolling back
from the mountain tops, as the golden
light grew stronger and increased in
splendor around the bare, rugged crags
and spurs of weather beaten rocks. Down
through the needled pines, the dark for
bidding oaks, around the moss grown
bowlders, danced the rosy dawn, nearing
Bellefonte, our beautiful Mountain City,
us she lay peaceful and quiet below. It
was an unusual, weird and ominous scene.
What brought these gentlemen together,
at this spot at this most unconventional
hour? What was the meaning of the
studied melancholy and subdued mien
which characterized the bearing of all
composing the mysterious parly Arriving
at the top of the hill they lost no time in
at once indicating the purpose which
brought them there. One gentleman pro
ceeded to step off ten paces, another >.f the
party produced from the voluminous folds
of his lust winter's ulster a box from
which he removed two pistol*. The silence
at tliia time was oppressive. The uglv
looking weapons were, without remark,
placed in the hands of two nervous looking
individuals, who were placed back to back.
Now for the firet time, a clear, sonorous
voice cleft the morning air, "Vou wilt
walk until the drop of this handkerchief,
then turn and fire." At this moment one
of the party who up to this juncture had
given unmistakable signs of great distress
retreated behind the protecting trunk of an
enormous tree. The jiorU-ntiou* handker
chief fell to the ground. Two inen hur
riedly confronted each other. Two shots
disturbed the solemn stillness as they rang
out as one. Two arms were flung convul
sively into space and a manly form lay
prone upon the earth with a crimson tide
rushing in torrents over Ins face. The
silent figure left the protecting embrace of
the friendly tree and started over the brow
of the hill at a terrific pace His career
was suddenly checked by cry frotn the
crowd surrounding the "lay" figure. If..
returned, took his disabled friend by the
hand and disappeared with the stealth and
swiftness of the panther. After this the
deluge. In a moment, Half Moon hill,
so recently a human pandemonium where
deadly passions were running riot—where
bloodshed reigned triumphant, was now
silent and cairn as the grave. The curtain
j has been rung down. The mystery is un
! explained, and one of the participants is
hunting in vain for the waters of Lethe
that he may drink forgot fulness of the
trngic events of last Monday morning.
—l'rof. Meyer spent last Friday afternoon
in making a thorough examination into
the workings and efficiency of the public
schools of Hellofonte. He had previously
announced that he would conduct a minute
and comprehensive examination of all the
scholars over fourteen years of age. As these
| are all found in the principal's room, Prof.
Meyer devoted the greater jairtion of his
time to this department. The pupils were
! on the qui n'rr and had evidently deter
mined to do their very best. The exami
nation covered the entire range of studies
taught the most advanced scholars and was
eminently satisfactory, reflecting much
I credit upon the management and ability of
the principal, Mr. Leib.. Prof. Meyer
seemed perfectly at home as he made fre
| quent drafts upon the knowledge of the
pupils and was highly pleased throughout.
Among those who deserve especial men
j lion as having passed really brilliant ex
animations were Miss Mary Bradley, Miss
Belle \N caver, Miss Kate Powers, ncice of
Mr. John Powers, and Harry and Willie
Keller, sons of D. S. Keller, Esq. Willie
Keller especially demands more than pas
ing notice. He is only twelve years of age
but his acquirement* are of such a charac
ter as to place him in the highest depart
ment of the school*. After concluding the
examination in Principal Lcib's room
Prof. Meyer vi*ited the Senior Grammar
school conducted by Mr. Wetzel where he
heard several of the classes. He then vis
ited tho Junior Grammar school presided
over by Miss Rosie Wood and heard the
mental arithmetic and geography classes
in their recitations. Prof. Meyer express
ed himself as well satisfied with the pro
ficiency and deportment of the scholars in
this excellently conducted department. Ho
aflei wards visited tho primary and inter
mediate department* and heard the reading
classes, which concluded his labors. It
was a pleasant occasion for both the Pro
fessor, the teachers and the scholars. Prof.
Meyer says that all the schools are In ex-
I ccllent condition and the pupils show the
result of careful and conscientious training.
