of age. His remains were interred in the

—The young men of Bellefonto have
organized an asiociation for mutual phys

Association the teachers of primary schools
Bhould be pereofls of excellent character, a
large experience, and that school dir 3tors
should pay salaries sufficient to s'eure the
services of those fitted for this work.
This is one of the soundest conclusions

the reoital of events thus far, but it is
poculiar that she should preler to dress as
men do for over three years. She states as
her reason for so doing that she was de
sirous of escaping tho attentions of a too
persistent lover. There ean be no error in
regard to her having boen at one time a

Beady Mixed Paint sold but rivnls pure
white lead in its smoothness in working
and durability. This paint is guaranteed
by the manufactures not to crack or peel
within three years. The guarantee is not
only good for replacing tho paint but it
will be put on if it should crack or peel
within the time specified. It will be to
your interest to call and see Wilson, Mc-

white lead or any other Ready Mixed

to us well filled with pleasant reading and
good illustrations, the oil picturo being es
pecially attractive. The serial, "The Ad
miral's Ward," is well sustained in inter
est, and the shorter stories are meritorious.
An article of interest is "Sandringbam
Hall," the residence of the Prince of
Wales; and another is a biographical
aketch of Jolmn Ludwig Runeberg. All
the ladies will like to read Jenny June's
article on "Beauty," and also the "Fash

MILKSHUKO ITKMS.—Cheap John, alia 8
11. I. Barnes, was here all last week with
his novelty store. Milcsburg must be a
good place for his business as he was here
only a couple of months ago.
The now tombstone peddler had a very
queer and disagreeable experience one day
last week. Ho was in his garden, under
an apple tree, gathering some of the green
fruit, and upon raising up something glid
ed down ulong the side of his face and
neck and thence down his back, lie sim
ply said : "Oh I" turned around and saw
an immense black snake run away from
him. It seems the snake was up in the
tree and got down via. his face and back.
He say 9it was a pretty close call. The
snake eluded all search and got away.
Prof. Girod was made happy the other
day by receiving about twelve hundred
dollars pension. Wish we could bo like
.John Rankin was quite seriously bitten
by his dog the other day. Upon coming
home lie meant to pet the dog, but the
animal was not so disposed, and jumped up
and bit him in the face, tearing him pretty
badly. He is not exactly ono of the
Milosburg dogs, not fur away.
Geo. Harrnan had his ribs rather un
pleasantly punched one day last week at
the planing mill. Ho was operating one
of the machines when a short hoard that
be hud in his hand was violently thrown
hack, the corner striking and cutting him,
landing him on his hack breathless.
Lie says ho thought it was all up with him
but beyond a pretty lively shake up ho
feels all right again.
Mr. William Galbruith and family
formerly of this place lire at present visit
ing some of their relatives here.
Mr. Kohlbecker's summer visitors have
all gone to their homes.
John Hibler has a new porch in front of
his store and dwelling home where ho sits
of an evening and serenely smokes his

J. A. KKM.KR, Sec. |
Prohibition in Centre County.
THO readers of tlio DEMOCRAT during
tho pust month have boon kopt posted in
relation to tho movemonts of those active
ly engaged ill bringing before the people tho
necessity and practicability of a prohibi
tory clause being appended to tho State
constitution forbidding the manufacture
and salo of intoxicating liquors, within the
limits of the Commonwealth, forever.
Meetings wore held throughout the county,
branch organizations established, executive
or vigilance committees appointed and del
egates to the County Convention elected.
These delegates met in pursuance to tho
call of Mr. W. I). Blackburn, a member
of the St ate Constitutional Amendment
Association, in |tho Court House, at llelle
fonto, Friday 2Sth ultimo. One significant
feature of tho convention was the partici
pation of many of Centre county's most
respectable and influential citizens.
Friends of temperance anxiously await
ed tho action of this deliberative body and
were ready and willing to support any
measures it might see lit to adopt. Tho
work was well dono, all having been ac
complished that was originally intended to
be effected, which will bo fully adduced by
the publication of the preamble and con
stitution in a future issue.
In this connection it might bo safe to
remark that the only progress made in
these aggressive movements is tho work of
tho untiring, determined, conservative ele
ment ; those who after duo consideration
take a stand, and are satisfied to have tho
work move slowly provided the advance
ment he sure and permanent.
It is barely possible to enforce the ex
isting laws controlling tho sale of liquors,
and there are many others that might sup
plement them with good effect. As all
licenses nro applied f"r as necessary to ac
commodate the traveling public, let them
be granted with permission to sell only to
traveling Men, or tax tho consumers in
stead of tho vender. Have each person
who drinks pay $5, per annum, publish
the names of all who take out licenses,
twice a year, and allow all who pleaso to
sell, hut only to those holding valid cer
tificates of intemperance.
We publish, with pleasure, the follow
ing report of the secretary :
The convention assembled in the Court
House at 10.30 A. M. Was called to order

While tho foregoing committees wore
preparing their reports, short nddretse
were innde by a number of delegates, as to
the objects and aims of the convention
which became quite animated at limes,
when tho committee on constitution re
ported the following—which was on rn< -
tion adopted as read, and will he published
hereafter. The committee on resolution
then reported the following as the sense of
tho convention, viz:
WHEREAS, That after a fair and impar
tial trial for two hundred years in Penn
sylvania the system of licensing the manu
facture or salo of intoxicaiing liquors :r
drinking purposes has absolutely failed s
a preventitive against drunkenness, t
radation, debauchery, pauperism n.id
Resolved , That this license system ne! n
er confers nor confirms any natural ri ,
but is solely a privilege granted for special
reasons and for a specific lime. Its abro
gation would destroy no right, nor in my
proper sense contravene personal liber.y,
nor be unjust to any one now enjoying i.s
special benefits. The public welfare is a
Revolved, That wo as advocates of tho
cause of temperance deem it necessary t t
other and more effective means be used <o
overcome the greut evils that flow fr n
the license system.

tho glorious news from lowa, announci ;
the overthrow of tho rum power and .
signal triumph of constitutional prohibi
tion in that great State by over 20,( >0
Resolved, That wo recognize with d -
vout gratitude to God the manifest in
creuo of healthful temperance sentiment
in all this land, and the simultaneous
movement in the various States of the
Union toward tho adoption of constitu
tional prohibitory amendments.
Resolved, That free from partisan spirit,
we nevertheless regard the evil of intem
perance as to gigantic us to believe its
suppre. ion to be the leading it sue now
before ;he people.
Resolved, That it is tho sense of tli's
meeting that the people of our State
should have the right to say by their bal
lots whether the manufacture or sulo of
intoxicating liquors shall be continued or
abo'lshed, except for medicinal, mechani
cal and scie Uific purposes ; and to this end
we urge all people, without distinction of
sex, race, party or denomination, to give
their efforts and influence in behalf of con
stitutional prohibition in Pennsylvania.
Resolved, That this convention hereby
urge and direct the officers and executive
committee of the county association, this
day organizi J, to proceed at tho earliest
practicable moment to complete tho orga
nization of the county, so that every bor
ough and township may be put in active
working order in tho interest of constitu
Reso< rd, That tho thanks of this con
ven 'on are due, and are hereby tendered

presence with us, and hospitality on this
o casion ; to the united church choirs for
their able and entertaining assistance ; and
