or of paying fur an elaborate banquet
served at Baurnau's "Wbito Palace Res
taurant." The "Bachelor's Club" was
organized several years ago wilh a limit
ed membership, which has since been
increased by tbe admission of young men
who have arrived at an age w heu they
feel that thry "can court a pretty girl at
10 o'clock at night." When tbe Club was
organized straws weredrawn to determine
who should pay for tbe banquet in hon
or of the first member wbo sbould wed,
and at each subsequent meetingstrawsare
drawn for the same purpose. .Friday
night Mr. Frank Hoblitxoll, of Meyers
dale, drew the unlucky short straw, and
F wnk Forney, of Somerset, drew tbe
next shortest, making biin Mr. Uoblits
ell'a alternate. The doatfa of George Har

The case of the Commonwealth t Cy
rus Hetnminger, to which brief refer
ence was made last week, was decided
Wednesday morning, when the jury re
turned a verdict of not guilty and placed
tbe costs upon the prosecutor, William
W. Young. Hetnminger was the sur
viving executor of David Phillippi, de
ceased. Among the receipts filed by him
upon final settlement of the trust were
three bearing what purported to be tbe
signature of Mrs. Sarah Young, wife of
tbe prosecutor, whose daughters bad kept
bouse at intervals for the widow of Mr.
Phillippi. Mrs. Young acknowledged
on the witness stand that the signature to
a receipt for fiS50 was genuine, but
claimed that tbe figures had been chang
ed from $15 50 to fli 50, aud alleged that
tha other two signatures were forgeries.
Mr. Hemmlnger testified that Mrs.
Young had signed all of (he receipts In
question, but admitted that after writing
the receipt for $15.50 be discovered that
his wife bad paid $10.00 to one of the
Young girls for services rendered tbe

receipt to include that amount before
Mrs. Young had signed her name to iL
Experts on handwriting testified in be

concerned on both sides.
James D. Blouch, a robber, who held
up William Jones, who appeared as pros
ecu tor, iu a freight car at Rock wood, con
cluded to enter a plea of guilty after sev
eral witnesses had been examined and
incrimimUed him. He was sentenced to
psy the costs of prosecution and to under
go t hree years' confinement in tbe West
ern Penitentiary. Blouch was taken to
tbe pen by Sheriff Saylor Friday, and on
tbe way down admitted to the Sheriff
that he bad "done time" before.
Tbe grand jury ignored the bill against

charged with aasault and battery, on in
formation of George Shaffer, and placed
the costs on the prosecutor.
Tbe indictment against Cyrus Coleman,
charged with defrauding a boarding-

and tbe costs placed upon Susan.
James Diamond entered a plea of
guilty of robbing Mrs. Mary Dulricht, of
Scalp Level, notice of which was made
last week, and was sentenced to the Re

J. A. Berkey, E-q , appeared as prose
cutor in a case charging assault and bat
tery against John F. Snyder, a well
known plasterer and Spanish war vet
eran of this place. From the evidence
adduced it appeared that Snyder had
done a job of patching for Attorney Ber
key in a tenement house, and that when
be presented a bill for his services and
the material ued $2 50 Berkey de
clared the amount excessive and refused
to pay it, unless compelled to do so by
process of law. Snyder testified that be
had submitted a proposition to Berkey
wherein he agreed to let tbe matter of his
charge to any other plasterer in town.
This proposition was made in tbe office
of the County Treasurer one morning
early in last April, and when Berkey
failed to agree to name an umpire, Snyder
accompanied him to the office of Koontz
& Ogle, to the poatoflice, and from there
to tbe top of tbe stairs leading to Berkey'a
office, at which point, he testified, Berkey
kicked him on tbe shins and attempted
to push him down tbe stairway, where
upon Snyder struck him a blow on the
nose, causing tbe blood to flow freely.
Berksy did not controvert any of tbe
statements made by Snyder, except as to
what occurred at the top the stairs.
F. J. Kooser, Ktq., conducted the case
for Berkey, and A C. Holbert, Esq.,
looked after Snyder's Interests. The trial
consumed a day and a half, the jury re
tiring at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon
and remaining out until 8 o'clock that
evening, when they returned a verdict of
not guilty and divided the costs between
tbe prosecutor and defendant. The an
nouncement of the verdict was applauded
by the crowd in tbe courtroom.
Thursday morning a motion was filed
with tbe Court asking that the verdict be
set asie so far as tbe costs placed upon
the prosecutor were concerned, and pray
ing for ten days' time in which to file the
reasons therefor. In case this is done,
one-half of the costs will have to be borne
by tbe county.

k Fire Entailing a Lois ef (30,000 to S40,
000 in Paint townihip.
Tbe extensive lumber mills of James
Curry it Sons, located near Arrow Post
office, Paint township, about four aud a
half miles from Windber, were totally
destroyed by fire Thursday night,
A night watchman was on duty, but
be did not discover tbe (lames nntil such
headway had been gained that all efforts
to extinguish them weie unavailing.
There is no clue to the origin of tbe fire,
but it Is generally supposed that it was
by a spark from tbe boiler furnace.
The der Unction of the mill entails a
loss of from f,000 to fW,000, which is
partially covered by $20,000 insurance.
The ownors will rebuild just as soon as
the insurance companies visit tbe scene
of the fire and the rubbish can be cleared
James Curry A Sons purchased the
tract of 1 md on which the mill was locat
ed some two or three years ago for some
thing more than 100,0no, and bad erected
a modern lumber plant. Tbe owners
live aear the mill, and, with the men
who conducted the operations, have built
up a villageof considerable sir.e necessi
tating tbe opening of tbe Arrow Post
oftice about two months ago.
