Frequent services will be held in the

March came in neither roaring like a
lion nor bleating like a lamb. We don't
know what animal to aompare it with, but
guess that the monkey will suit. But
when March comes in like any other ani
mal than a lion or lamb it gives us no
basis upon which to foretell how it will go
—Thomas Carlyle, in speaking of Amer
ica, once said, "The secret of happiness in
America is that ye have a vast deal of
land for a very few people. '' The eminent
philosopher erred in neglecting to state ;
that an important item in the happiness of j
Americans is tbat they have such flnegro- :
eery stores as that of S. A. Brew A Son. j
All the land in Centre county would fail j
to make a man happy if he did not have a
first-class grocery store near by.

May, Venn* growing more brilliant, while
Saturn and Jupiter will gradually dimin

—A Bishop street boy went to see hit
grandmother. After looking eagerly around
the handsomely furnished room where he
sat, he exclaimed, inquiringly. "Oh, grand
ma, where is the miserable table papa saya
you keep?" "Oh, we have a good table
now, my dear," answered grandma;" we
have commenced buying our groceries of
Hechler JA Co., aud our cook is now able
to prepare some of the nicest dinners you
ever tasted.
Last Sunday night was one of the
times when tho darkness was so intebse
that it could almost be felt. The street
lamps were In their usual places, but they
were not visible to mortal eye, end only
served a* obstructions to impede the prog
,;-ee# of pedeetrian*—and their hard iron
surface is by no means the most agreeabl*
substance in the world to come in forcible
contact with. We believe ijrith Artemu*
Ward that this should not be thus, and
are of opinion thet it will not be heeltby
for the borough authorities to have too
many "this thucs." In plain word*, why
were not the street lamps lit? Are the
borough authorities in league with the evil
powers to keep people away from church ?

concluding ono for tbi oa*on at loaat.
Tho pretty stream, with iU IribuUry,
Logan branch, row very rapidly last Sun
day night, caused by a violent rain storm
which began about 4 o'clock on tho after
noon of that day and continued with una
bated fury for fourteen hours. At 4 o'clock
on Monday morning it had attained a
height seldom known bofore. Tho im
mense body of snow along (ho banks of tho
tao streams was transformed into water,
and descended liko an avalanche into tho
roaring Hood.
Considerable damage was wrought by
tho destructive waters. Tho dam above
tho car works was in imminent danger of
bursting its banks, in which case tho de
struction would have been increased to an
almost limitless extent. Tho smallor dams
at Mann's Axe Works and at Valentines'
Ironworks gave way, and sent thoir con
tents down to swell tho mighty flood. A
trestle which supports Valentines' railroad
across Spring creek was only prevented
from floating olf by being secured on one
end. An immense cako of ice struck ono
of the piers oi the High street bridge,
considerably endangering tho safety of tho
structure. Further down tho creek tho
bridge lending to tho Hush House stables
was carried away. Tho bridge on Lamb
street was greatly damaged as were also
several other similar structures further
down tho stream. Tho dam at Linn A
McCoy's Ironworks was damaged to a
considerable extent. All along tho course
of tho creek cellars wero flooded, causing
much destruction and inconvenience. Tho
waters subsided almost as soon a they had
risen. It is not a comforting thought that
sufficient snow remains to again swell the
creek with a raging torrent if wo should
be visited soon by the same amount of

ltcv. Mr. N'esbitl, of Lock Haven,
preached two splendid sermons for the
Presbyterian congregation, of this place, on
; Sunday last. The audience present at tho

\ no doubt that those who heard him were
highly edified.

The following remarks concerning tho
season upon which we have jut entered
are copied from tho Altoona Tribune.: The
penitential season of Lent began on Wed
nesday of thin week. To many it U a
season of fasting and prayer, whilu to all,
especially tho gayer world, it is a tinio for
much needod rent from social demands, such
as parties, balls, entertainments, etc. It
concludes with Saturday, the 10th of April,
at which time tin; white robes of Easier
rejoicing aro brought forth. The setting
apart of forty days as a season of fasting
and special devotion has its origin in simi
lar seasons mentioned both in tho Old
Testament and tho New. Moses was on
Mount Sinai with tho Almighty lor forty
days and nights. Elijah fasted forty days
and nights as ho went to Mount lioreb.
When Jonah proclaimed to the Ninuvites
that their city would he destroyed if they
did not repent, their term of grace was fixed
at forty days, during which time they
"proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth,
from tho greatest to the least." When
Jesus Christ went into tho wilderness to be
tempted by the devil, his term of exile was
forty days and nights, during which lime
he fasted Jly the people of tho Old Tes
tament fasting was observed as an accom
paniment to prayer and other acts of devo
tion. Thoro aro intimations in tho New
Testament that lasting, i( devoutly prac
ticed, would be acceptable to God. In the
early church there seems to have boon as
great diversity of opinion about the duly
of fasting as among modern Christians. In
the first century fasting was joined with
prayer in connection with the rito of bap
tism. In tho second century it became
customary to fast before Easter, not in
such protracted measure as tho
fast, but rather with a series of solemn
services. These were principally on Fri
days, to commemorate the day of the cru
cifixion. At Alexandria Wednesdays and
Fridays were observed as fast days, com
memorative of the betrayal of our !ord on
Wednesday and his crucifixion on Friday
As regular days of fasting became more
and more fixed institutions the custom in
creased of preparing by feasting on the
Jays preceding the fast. There is high
authority for this in the account of Elijah
and bis fast. Before entering on his forty
days of abstinence ho ate a substantial
repast and "went in the strength of that
meat forty days and forty nights unto
lioreb, the Mount of God." In the limes
of the early fathers, Chrysostom, Augus
tine and others, this feasting was so greatly
in excess as to cause tho outspoken con
demnationof theie Godly men. But human
nature is much the snme in all generations.
As fasting became more of a prescribed
duty preliminary h-asling grew in favor.
In countries where the fat is made
the most of tho carnivals which precede It
are most eminently flavored with jollity
and the consumption of creature comforts.
The season of Lent in its forty-day con
tinuance gradually became a fixed custom,
both in the Eastern and tho Western
churches. For a long time fasting was
voluntary. By the Council of Orleans in
oil it was made obligatory. The Eighth
Council of Trent in the next century for
bade the use of meat during the fast before
Easter, and decreed that thoso who ato it
during that time should go without it for
the rest of the year. Various councils
from time to time took action as to the
details of fasting In tho English Church
Lent was commanded by Ercombert, sev
enth King of Kent, in the eighth century.
The Protestant Episcopal church of this
country has closely followed the practices
of the Church of England as to Lent.
In ail the churches which observe the
Ash Wednesday services aro partially
solemn and |>enilcntial. There is a general
abstinence from worldly business if not
from food. In all the churches where
fasting prevails tho rules of abstinence
from food are now so modified that no
privation need be undergone so great as to
he dangerous to health. The sick, tho
feeble and the hard working are exempted
from fasting as it would be injurious to the
physical system. To th>triiiy devout who
accept the duty of fasting as a help to
spiritual life and to communion with God
it would seem that there must be advan
tage in it. Tho world sutlers from glut
tony and overfeeding far more than from
eating too little.
—Among the officers recently elected to
preside over the alfairs of the borough of
Pbiliprburg were three gentlemen—VV. T.
Bain, 8. F. Lytle and L. C. Jonea—who
were chosen to fill the somewhat novel
position of church trustees. When their
names were published in last week's DIM
OCRAT we did not understand the duties of
this honorable position. Our ignorance on
the subject was, doubtless, shared by others,
for in its recent issue the Philiptburg
Journal feels called upon to ofTor the fol
lowing explanation:
I<ong years ago before church denomi
nations had an existence in this ancient
"burg," a property was set aside bv the
founder of the village, and a building
erected denominated the "Union Church,"
whose doors ws'e always one.i to ministers
of the gospel for preaching and public
worship This property is under the con
trol of the borough authorities, and the
voters elect annually three trustees, whose
duty it Is to supervise the same. Expenses
for repairs ana incidentals are paid out of
the borough tax assessment.
—Tuesday last was what is commonly
known at "Bbrove Tuesday," and was the

LINKS ABOUT LKNT.—Tho following !
protty poem, appropriate to Lent, Is from
tho pen of MM. Marcella V. Hardenbergh,
of Brooklyn, and appears in a neat little
volume recently issued by her under tho
title "From Heart to Heart." The poem
is entitled
It is tiic solemn Lenten time,
When from the world apart,
We Christians should review our life,
And try our inmost heart.
Before Jehovah's searching sight.
All guilty we must he,
But yet I think our crying sin
Is lack of charity.
Proud Pharisees, wo thank the Lord,
We not as others seeut,
Our glass can magnify the "mote,"
But quite o'crlook tho "beam."
Is our own garb so undofilod,
Our heart so while within,
That we can draw our robes aside,
And spurn the child of sin ?
Can we stand up witli spotless hands,
Pass sentence on another,
Unpitying lift the murderous stone
And slay an erring brother?
If Christ such mercy showed to us,
As we to others show,
How swift would be our punishment,
llow sure would be our woe!
Lord, in the holy Lenten time,
Teach us our guilt to see ;
Oh send, most needed of all gifts,
The grace of charity.

about going into office should lake heed of
i recent decisions of the Supreme Court in j
1 relation to roads and bridges, so that they
will place and keep all such in condition \
that will ensure the safety of travelers and
save the township damage* The Supreme
Court has decided that if a public road,
running through a township, is so danger. I
ous by reason of its proximity to a preci
picc that common prudence require* extra j
precaution In order to ecuro safety to j
travelers, the township is bound to use such
precaution, and the omission to do so is
negligence. Townshij*, a well as other
municipalities, as a city or borough, are j
bound to creel walls or barriers along the
sides of it* mad. if that i necessary to the (
safety of travelers.
In another caw the Supreme Court also
decided that, where the plaintiff wa* driv
ing over an unrailed township bridge and
the horse look fright at a plank nailed over
a hole in the bridge, and before be could
be prevented, backed over the bridge into
the creek, by which the horse, carriage
and harness were injured, judgment WM
properly entered upon a verdict for SB3, in '
favor of the plaintiff and against the town
ship, who should have kept the bridge in a
safe condition.
DKATII os MRS WIAVIR.—Thia lady,
the wife of George 11. Weaver, Esq., of
Howard street, died on Monday morning
la*t, of consumption, with which she had
been for a long time a sufferer. She was
a lady of great amiability and energy, and
would not la'lieve that death was so newr
until it had almo*t arrived. A husband
and several children survive her, who
d'-wrve the profoundest sympathy in their
cffiiclion. Her maiden name was Mist
•Susan Ingram. She was in her f.lst year.
Mr. Harry Mall, a former resident
of Milesburg, died recently at Maryville,
Nodaway county, Mo., aged 78 year*. He
wa* a stone mason by trade, and worked
on the Presbyterian church at Milesburg
during the process of its erection. A a

who knew him, and his* death is greatly
Mr*. J. A. Wallace, net Miss Mary J.

—Mr*. Margaret Carson, wife of Wil

—A coincidence occurred at Pbitipsburg
on Sunday morning, the 20th instant.
Rev. I)r. Woodend, the new pastor of the
Presbyterian church, had just announced
hit text, "Let fire come out of tbe bramble,
and devour the cedar* ol Lebanon," when
a smell of fire and smoke pervaded the
sanctuary, and tbe floor of the church waa
discovered to be on fire, caused by an
overheated furnace. A few buckets of
water checked the progress of the flames,
and Dr. Woodend proceeded with his In
terrupted discourse. It Is not often that
such an immediate response follows the
eiorlntioni of a minister.
