tbe people may expect this much to be de

Ben Williams, a colored porter at the
Brockerhoff House, the otbor nigbt took
the conceit out of a Philadelphia stone
mason who bad been employed on the new
Centro County Bank building and who
had said, it is related, that no three men
in Beilefonte, all at one time, could trounce
him. On the nigbt of tho demonstration,
which occurred in the bote! barroom, the
stonecutter was "pickin' on" Ben, a* be

pugilistic sense. Ben states that bis mus

—The sarcastic Altoona morning paper
says that "a Bellefonte man who came
here with half a notion to make the city
his futuro home happened to see three fu
nerals in one day, whereupon be ran home
with a dismal tale about the unheattbineM
of Altoona. He should have lnvesAgated
a little, when he would likely have discov
ered that the three unfortunates whose fu
nerals he saw had been visiting Bellefonte
when tbey were smitten by the band of
death." Not much he wouldn't, either.
People come to Bellefonte to be cured of
their lII#. There are never any epidemics
here and no "malaria" (bad whisky), as
there are in Altoona, and the Bellefonte

when he opened the door. Not observing

as he closed the door, and life wa* crushed
out of it before it could be extricated.
Every member of the family expressed
feelings of r>gret at the death of the saucy
bantam, and "Uncle Jim" said be felt just
like going up in the garden behind the

—A trestle now occupies a large portion
of the street heretofore Uken up by the
track of the Bald Eagle Valley railroad at
Tyrone. The grade of the ground track
was very heavy, the rails being nine feet
lower at a point near the bridge tban at
the other extreme, and fretght trains were
frequently stuck and invariably experi
enced great difficulty in getting over that
portion of the road. Several streets are
blockaded by the trestle, but there is now
no apparent necessity for further block
adee of freight trains at tbat point. To the
eye of the unaccustomed observer the
trestle looks like an inclined plane, but I*
said to be about level. The trestle is prob
ably an eighth of a mile long, and it wa*
constructed during Saturday nigbt and tbe
fore pert of Sunday nearly three weeks
ago. This I* considered rapid work,
though, with tbe usual precision and at
tention to detail which characterise the
preparation* for work to be performed by

HALL.— Tha Northern Conference of the
Evangelical Lutheran Bynod of Central
Pennsylvania was in session several days
last week at Centre Hall. This organiza
tion includes all the Lutheran pastors and
pastorates in the counties of Centre, Clin
ton and part of Union. Tbe opening ser
mon was preachod on Tuoseay evening by
Rev. J. A. Koser, of Pine Grove Mills.
On Wednesday morning from half-past 8
to 9 o'clock devotional exercisos were held,
conducted by tbe venerable lather, Rev. J.
G. Anspach, of MifHinb'irg. From 9 to
half-past 10 conference business received
attention. At half-past 10 tbe discussion
on "How to Btuuy tbe Word of God" was
opened with a carefully prepared paper by
Rev. B. K. Furst, of Bellefonte. The dis
cussion was carried on by members of con
ference in a thorough manner until time
for adjournment.
Conference business engaged attention
from 2 to half-past 3 in the afternoon, after
which Rev. W. 11. Diven, of Balona, road
an able and instructive paper on "Reviv
als," which was further discussed by the
members of conference until the adjourn
In the evening a sermon was preached
by Rev. A. R. Glaze, of New Berlin, on
"Beneficiary Education," after which a

On Thursday morning from half-past 8

esting "Children's Meeting" was held.
Entertaining and profitable addresses were
made by Rev. M. L. Furst, of Hartloton ;
Kev. J. A. Koser and Rev. P. A. Ileil
man, of Lock Haven. Tbe singing was
good at this meeting, and at usual the
children's afternoon proved very enjoya
ble and edifying.
On Thursday evening Rev. P. A. Ileil
man preached the closing sermon, after
which a short business session was held,
fallowed by the closing exercise* of confer
ence. Confeience Iben adjourned to meet
in Keiiefonte in April, 1882.
The business transacted at this meeting
was of importance. Aii the session* were
harmonious, practical and edifying, and lbs
reports on tho stale of religion were very
encouraging. All departed with tho feeling
that "it was good to bo there."
The rainfall of the past two weeks has bad
a much desired effect throughout tbe sur
rounding country, and the springs and
creeks that bad almost entirely dried up
during tho long-continued drought hsve
been revived. Tbe rain came too late, how
ever, to save the crop* and, consequently,
to have any efTect upon the price* of vege
table*. The potato and turnip crops were
curtailed from the effects of the drought,
as well as mar.y other article* of table pro
duce, and although tbe recent rains will
hsve a good effect in many other ways
they cannot make up for the scarcity of
provisions now that the season is over.
Farmers say there is little to be hoped for
in the prospect of a fall in prices, but
while housekeepers may set their minds to
dear marketing the coming winter they
will at least have tbe comforting assurance
that there is no probability of a further
increase. Although the rain* did not come
early enough to save the crops the farmer*
are thanklul that they wera in here bare
lime to save winter wheat and rye, which
would have suffered severely had it not
been for tbe long-looked-for-come-*t-last
November shower*. Fall pastures will
also be improved by the present change of
Vennor, the Canadian weather prophet,
whose prognostications are readable If not
always reliable, says that "November of
this year will probably enter cold and de
cidedly wet, but this condition will sud
denly, after the first week, give place to
open and genial weather nearly every
where, with e disappearance of frosts even
in northern New York and Canada for a
marked period. We may expect some oi
tha finest—st any rata most enjoyable
weather of the season during Ibis month
at Naw York, Boston, Philadelphia and
Washington, and in Canada our 'lndian
summer.' In western sections the fore and
latter portions of tbe month are likely to
be disagreeable, but I do not anticipate
much trouble from snowfalls or blockades
this winter until December. Should such
occur, however, It will likely be found that
lb* date* of the disturbances will be very
nearly tbe same a* those of the November
of 1880. Possibly there may be a period
of unusual warmth in proximity to the
middle of tbe month. This month will be
marked by periods of bslmy and brilliant
autumn weather, as in the year 1877."

A lolegraphio dispatch printed In a Phila
delphia newspaper of August 80 has occa
sioned great interest and doubtless consid
erable anxiety In a certain section of this
county. The particulars contained in that
Associated I'ress telegram were as lollows,
the dispatch being sent from Washington :
"A communication has been received at
tho Department of Bute from Consul Ba
ker, of Buenos Ayres, relative to a search
for the heirs of John Duffleld, of Goya,
Argentine Itopublic, which stales a letter
had been received at the consulate from a
gentleman signing himself J. 11. Ander
son. The letter was d*U<d Irom the ('amp
bell House, Bav City, Michigan, and the
writer slates that he was well acquainted
with Mr. Duffleld; that his heirs reside in
the Btate of Maine and that he (Mr. An
derson) will look them up. Heretofore, in
pursuance of the vaguo information on
hand, the search for the missing hsirs was
confined to Mobile, Ala. It would n<>w
appear, however, that either by advertis
ing or correspondence in Maine, or both,
the representatives of the deceased may be
at last discovered. It is understood by
those who were acquainted with John Duf-
Held that he was o'iginally a sailor, and
was connected with Captain Belfridge's
Tchuanlcpec surveying expedition. He
went Irom Central America down the
west coast to Peru, whence ho crossed
overland to Ascuncinn,or rather Villa Oc
cidental, Paraguay, where for many years
he was engaged in commercial pursuits.
Dr. Newkirk, of Goya, the locality where
Duffleld was murdered, wrote recently to
Consul Baker that he (Dr. Newkirk) had
received a letter from Hon. C. 11. Wash
burn, formerly United Slates Minister at
Paraguay and at present residing in San
Francisco, Cal., wherein Mr. Washburn
stated that ho was well acquainted with
Duffleld, whose real name was Kelly.
Since the receipt of the above dispatch the
department has been informed directly by
cx-Minister Washburn that be did know
John Duffleld very well, but affirms that
he never wrote to Dr. Newkirk and that
be never said or heard that Duffleld's real
name was Kelly. Consul Baker still later
advises the department that the said Dr.
Newkirk now writes that the assets of the
estate have been delivered to the court to
be turned into the treasury of the province
of Corrietes. The heirs however can, by
making themselves known, institute pro
ceedings recover the property."
The foregoing statement if thoroughly
investigated and pursued bids fair to result
in the enrichment of citixens of Centre
county, Charlaa Jefferson Duffleld, Joseph
Duffleld and Elisabeth Duffleld, who live
in Beech Creek and Eaglevillo. C. J. Duf
fleld observing the dispatch in the news
papers he authorised Mr. John McGhee,
of Beech Creek, to write to the Stale De
partment at Washington saying the de
scription of the deceased answered to that
of bis uncle, John Duffleld, who formerly
lived in Maine, but who went South and
was lost track of. The reply from W.
Hunter, Second Assistant Secretary, was
to the effect that the dispatch was authen
tic, being prepared in the department for
publication with the view to discovering,
if possible, the legal heirs to the estate of
John Duffleld, deceased, and that it con
tained a brief summary of all the essential
and prominent facts In connection with
the case which have been reported. The
Second Assistant Secretary advises Mr.
McGhee to write to the United States
Consul at Buenos Ayres, Argentine He.

the will, at the same time acquainting the
Consul with bis purpose of endeavoring to

In order to advance the interests of the
supposed Centre county heirs to ibis valu
able Boulh American estate Mr. J. L.
Bpangler, of ibis place, has been engaged
to attend to the legal details of the case,
and he has prepared a letter to Hon. K. L.
Baker, American Consul at Buenos Ayrea,
stating that he Is the representative of C.
J., Joseph and Elisabeth Duffleld, and be
wishes to establish their right and title to
the estate as heirs of John Duffleld. The
Kagleviite and Beech Creek Dufflelds rep
resent in their attorney's letter that John
and Robert Duffleld were born In Maine,
the precise locality not yet being known.
Robert removed to Rockingham county,
Vs., in 1887, and thence to Newport, Pa.,
where be died In 1871, leaving a widow,
Elisabeth, and two sons, Charles Jefferson
Joseph Duffleld. The tons, now about 80
year* of age, assert that their uncle left
Maine about 1867 or 1868 and proceeded
to Virginia, but spent most of his lime in
Washington. Tbey think ba was aboard
a vessel and that be enlisted in the nrmy
or had something to do with the service.
Joeeph allege* that he taw bis uncle in the
service in South Caroline In 1862. He we*
unmarried at that time and bis height was
about 6 feat II inches j complexion retber
dark; weight 100 pound*; high check
bones; brown hair; robust and healthy
and always of a roving disposition. Tha
young men have had no tidings of their
uncle since 1882.
The letter to the Consul likewise make*
n polite requeet that he will render nil the
assistance in his power to oleer up the tnye
tery surrounding the case in it* existing
state and to endeavor to have the aetata—
the exact amount of which has not to this
time been ascertained—awarded to the
rightful legal***. Tha* tha matter stands
at present; but til interested eta repose in
the assurance that every step necessary to
securo to the Centre county claimants their
rights will be taken. It is to be hoped
that If the Beech Creek and Eagleville
Dufflelds are proved the legal heirs they
may receive the legacy without delay or
unnecessary trouble, and though doubtless
considerable time will be consumed, owing
to the fact that all matter* relating to the
estate have to be conducted by correspond
ence, ml* is what Mr. Bpangler has earn
estly set himself to work to accomplish.
