Cervera and Augiistl.
Admiral Cervera arrived in Madrid
last Thursday. The marked coolness
of Admiral Cervera and his officers tow
ard the Minister of Marine, Senor
Aunon. was much commented npon.
Senor Annon and his staff, in uniform,
met Admiral Cervera and his party, at
the railroad depot The Admiral bait
ed before the Minister, saluted and
said, stiffly.
"I am at the order of your excel
lency. I shall present myself at the
Ministry to-day, as is my dnty."
The Admiral then started to leaye,
after embracing Captain Eulate, the
former commander of the \ iscaya, and
his other comrades. The Minister of
Marine offered the nse of his carriage
to Admiral Cervera, but the latter de
clined to accept it, and entered another
In an interview the Admiral said he
had a clear conscience regarding Santi
ago. Nations, he said, grew great by
' their victories and not by their defeats,
however glorions they liMght be.
Spain had lived in a dream, and she
now had to face reality. The Admiral
added that his warships were not de
stroyed in battle, but by fire.
General Toral, the Spanish command
er, who surrendered his forces at Santi
ago de Cuba, has also arrived there.
He did so without attracting any atten
tion. He is now sick in bed.
General Augusti, the former Captain
Genera] of the Phillippine Islands, who
just arrived at Victoria, Spain,
from Manila, in an interview is quoted
as discussing the Phillippine question
in an interesting manner. He is al
leged to have said:
"Before I left Spain I knew the situa
tion in the Phillippine Islands was
grave. Senor Moret, the Minister of
the Colonies in the last Cabinet of
Senor Sagas to. remarked to me that if
war with the United States broke out
there would be a terrible stateof things."
Continuing, General Augusti de
scribed' Admiral Montejo's fleet as some
"old wooden ships," and said they
"came to Manila practically pursued by
Dewey." He then said:
"Our batteries fired at the Ameri
cans, but our guns were mounted on
false plates, and after the first shots
they became useless. At daybreak we
were in the power of the Americans
and an hour afterwards the Spanish
fleet had ceased to exist.
"Dewey summoned me to surrender.
I refused and he threatened to raze the
town. I replied:
" 'Raze it, but so long as I live the
Spanish flag will float on the ruins of
"Then began the terrible time of the
siege and the anguish of the blockade.
Famine stared us in the face. In the
meantime, hostilities were conducted
' throughout the provinces, but, save in
isolated cases, humanely. Dewey re
peated his summons to surrender and I
again refused. Dewey then bombarded
the town and Manila surrendered. But
considering my presence no longer nec
essary, I asked the Government for per
mission to go home, as my position had
become by no means easy. I think I have
done my duty as a soldier and a Span
The Ministerial newspapers protest
against the supposition that the United
States will keep the Philippine Islands.
They mantain that Spain's rights to
these islands are incontestable and that
she is "resolved to defend her rights
with the greatest energy."

The Game Laws.
The hunting or game season opens on
Saturday. Oct. 15th, this year, and the
woods in some parts of the county will
be full of hunters that day who will
leave their homes the day before. The
season is anxiously looked forward to by
a number of our "shots," one of whom
takes his gun out of its case every day,
to ran his eye over the sights.
The game laws now read as follows:

kingfisher, bawk, horned owl, barred
owl. green heron or night heron are

lowed after the expiration of the season
to dispose of game.
The Parker Twp.. School Figlit.
r A large number of the people of Par
■ ker twp , assembled in the Court room
Tuesday morning to hear the case
» against the school l>oard of Parker twp.
on whom a rule had been granted to
show cause why they should not lie dis
missed from office for not furnishing
schools for the Bruin school district.
The war began with a dispute be
tween the attorneys regarding the old
and new school laws; and then about
fiftv witnesses were called and sworn
for the petitioners.
L. C. Miller took the stand and said
he had lived in Bruin for about 27 years,
his children were grown up, excepting
two, who were yet of school age, that
no schools were now open in Bruin and
no preparations were being made for
school there; he was one of a committee
to wait on the School Board and ask for
schools, but received no satisfaction
from them; the School Board had as
signed three of the township schools
Oak Hollow. Stevenson and Shakeley,
for the use of the town children: Bruin
was not a borough, the committee had
demanded the opening of the new
school house, no other rooms in the
town were fit to hold school in. toree
of the rooms in the new building were
1 equipped and would accommodate about
fifty scholars each; the building is of
. brick, cost about $5,500. and has fonr
rooms, the contractors have been paid;
the township bonded and bonds sold to
Mrs. Brown of Kittanning, etc."
Then the attorneys got to jangling as
to whether this proceeding was not for
the purpose of compelling the new
Board to accept the new building and
whether it was proper for the commit
tee of citizens to accompany the Board
in its search for school rooms etc. The
petitioners offered to occupy the new
building without prejudice to the Direc
Lawl Heydrick certified to the cor
rectness of a township map giving the
, distance from the bridge in the town to
certain school houses —ie. Oak Hollow
, 620 rods, Shakely 610, Campbell 640 and
Stevenson 460.—320 rods make a mile.
S. R. Walker one of the directors, and
Secretary of the Board, said the Board
had tried to rent Lincoln Hall and Kel
, ley's hall but had failed, did not try to
rent a club room that had been cou
deinned for church purposes, reported to
Board that he could not secure a room,
township schools opened Sept. 0, the
Board was advised by counsel not to
open new building; had keys for one
hour and took them back to Mr. Kelly.
Here Col. Thompson for Directors
, admitted the necessity for schools in
, the town; Messers Bowser and Brandon
for petitioners thought the new build
[ ing should be opened; and the Court
L said he would make an order directing
the School Board to supply teachers
and rent rooms, and have the schools in
operation by Monday Oct., 10; and if
1 they find themselves unable to do so
7 they are to be here on Saturday morn
; ing Oct., Bth and give their reasons.
! otherwise will be dismissed from office.
This seems to be a case of tow» ver
' sus township or vice versa. A year or
two ago the School Board of that time
bought a large lot in a field below the
town, and on it proposed erecting a
township high school. The project was
fought by the fanners at the time and
i a bill in equity was filed but not sus
tained. The Directors went ahead and
built the building, bonded the tuwn
, ship to pay for it, and levied a tax to
pay the bonds: but this tax levy has
I been declared illegal by the court here.
An issue was made in the township
. and the new Board of Directors is un
favorable to the whole proceeding.
1 They considered the old school building
(which the old Board sold and which is
now being used for a machine shop*
good enough and large enough for the
Bruin school district, that the new one
was a needless extravagance, and now
that the tax levy has been declared il
legal they think that the old Board
! should pay for the new building, as
best they can.
The present board will probably have
no trouble in securing a room and start
ing a school by the time fixed, and the
; tax levy question will probably go to
1 the Supreme Court; and if the Supreme
Court sustains the court here, and the
bonds are declared illegal and Mrs.
Brown loses her money, then —Who
will own the property?
There is no prettier spot in Western
Penn'a for an Academy than that one,
1 and if there is anything in the posses
sion of the key then Esq. Kelly is in
great luck.
The assessed valuation of Parker twp.
for this year is $289,000.
Judge Greer's decision on the Tax
Levy Case is as follows
"And now, September 21, 1898, this
case came on to be heard upon bill,
answer and testimony, and after being
fully argued by counsel on both sides,
it is hereby ordered, adjudged and de
creed that the school directors of Park
; er township school district, their succes
sors in office, their agents appointees
' and employes, and all persons acting
■ by, through or under said directors, be
1 and the same are hereby perpetually en
joined from the collection of the tax
of eight mills, described in the bill, or
any part thereof, which was alleged to
be assessed upon the taxable inhabitants
cf said township, and the said levy of
the said tax is hereby declared irregular
illegal, null and void, and it is further
adjudged and decreed that the schools
1 directors of Parker school district pay
' the costs of the proceeding."

products of Decomposition lit Tain
ted Food Which Threaten Hu
man LJfe.
In these days, when preserved pro
visions are being so largely manufac
tured to meet tbe equally large de
mand for such articles of diet, and
when, by the aid of the refrigerator,
we are supplied with meat all the way
from the antipodes, we find that we
have a new danger to face. This is the
liability, owing to accident or neglect
during the preserving process or dur
ing transit, of the food changing for
the worse, or, as we say, "going bad.
Unfortunately, such tainted food is
not readily detected, and the uncon
scious consumer is, therefore, open to
the risk of being unawares seriously or
fatally poisoned.
Tainted food contains the products
of decomposition which arc technical
ly known as ptomaines. Beyond the
fact that some of these ptomaines are
highly poisonous, very little else is
known about them. They are still the
subject of investigation, and so far wo
are only able to gather that ptomaines
are alkaloidal in character, and are
the active principles of nnimal tissue
In the same way as such alkaloids as
quinine and other similar drugs are
the active principles of the cinchona
and other plants.
The symptoms of ptomaine poison
ing may be acute, or they may be
vague and undefined. When acute, the
svmptoms usually set in a few hours
after partaking of the tainted food.
The patient complains of nausea, or
feels faint. Headache usually accom
panies the nausea, which terminates
In a fit or fits of vomiting. This sick
ness is often very violent and uncon
trollable. The patient complains of
great pain in the abdomen, and noth
ing appears to relieve this distressing
symptom. Meantime the temperature
and' pulse rise, and all the symptoms
increase in intensity. Distressing
retching takes the place of sickness,
and not infrequently the patient's
aspect is that of one in great agony.
Put every one of these symptoms may
differ in quality and intensity in dif
ferent cases, so that it is only the ex
perienced eye that can. from a survey
of the whole symptoms, recognize the
case as one of evident ptomaine poi
Sometimes this poisoning is slow,
the symptoms are not violent; the pa
tient complains of lassitude and weak
ness. There is also loss of appetite,
and in consequence the patient gets
rapidly weaker. In a few days a rash
may break out over the body. Th,e
character of this rash varies, and is
usually a source cf much indecision as
to the real cause of the illness. Often
boils break out on the face and neck,
ar.d this in an adult ought to indicate
probable poisoning of some sort. Not
infrequently ptomaine poisoning from
the outset shows no other symptom
than that of loss of strength, followed
slowly by loss of consciousness, de
lirium and death. As a rule, the real
cause of such slower cases is not rec
ognized. They occur among the poor,
and especially among those given to
Intemperance and loafing Such indi
viduals are not overcareful what they
eat to satisfy the craving for hunger,
and therefore frequently fall victims
to this poison. Very little carc is taken
to discover, or, rather to trace, the
cause of illness in such people. Tt is
not unnaturally put down to the vic
tim's bad habits and intemperate liv
ing.—Household Words.

Mr. Mcßride was a man of more than
ordinary intelligence, a sincere Chris
tian. always gaining the confidence and
respect of neighbors and associates.
He will be greatly missed by his family,
relatives and acquaintances.
Robert Mcßride was born in County
Antrum, Ireland, Sept. 4. 1848, died
Sept. li), IS'JH. When !) months old his
parents came to America and settled in
Pine township. Mercer Co., where he
was reared and educated. He was one
of the early students of what is now
Grove City College. He was a faithful
student and always loyal to his teach
ers, and he was always loved by them
He afterwards taught school with great
success. He kept constantly iu mind
that he was training the soul of the
child, and how to develop the soul was
his constant study all through life
He united with the Harmony United
Presbyterian church when he was 19
years old. Dr. Kerr was the pastor they
were always devoted friends. Iu I.s? 1
he was married to the daughter of John
Mcßride, of Butler Co., which proved a
happy union. After marriage he moved
from Mercer Co., to Franklin twp.,
Butler Co. On certificate he joined the
Muddy Creek Presbyterian church, Rev.
Samuel Williams being pastor, who
proyed a life long friend. Shortly after
this time he was elected elder and was
loved by all. In 1897 he lifted his certi
ficate from Muddy Creek church and
placed it with the Cnionville congrega
tion because it seemed more convenient
to attend there. His wife and eight
children survive. Six sons, two daugh
ters. He also leaves an aged mother,
two sisters and four brothers to mourn
his loss, as he was a kind counsellor to
all. It was through a desire to educate
his family that he moyed to Grove City
last spring. Now we may all say:
Our circle is broken,
One chair is left vacant.

"The Ansnacment of u \ unnt Laif j er
Orer the Challrr of Two Ulrl
"When I learned the deaf-mute sign
language, a few years ago,** said a
young lawyer recently, "it was for a
definite purpose, and since then, inci
dentally, it has furnished a good deal
of amusement to me. There are not
many deaf mutes in his city, and when,
in coming down on an elevated train
this morning I discovered that the
cross seat opposite me was occupied
by two young women who were con
versing in sign lar.gnage, my interest
was at once excited. They were ncat
looking girls, and as I settled in my
seat I discovered that they were hav
ing an animated conversation on a cer
tain young man whose merits and de
merits they were frankly discussing,
never dreaming that anyone else in
the car eounld understand them. Sud
denly one of them noticed that I was
looking intently at them, and with her
fingers she said to the other girl:
" 'Don't look up just now; but in the
seat across from you is a young man
on whom you have made an impres
sion. He isn't bad looking.'
"I glanced idly out of the window to
give the girl a chance to inspect me,
nnd with difficulty i suppresseAa smile.
She looked me over critically, and then
with her fingers she said:
"'You saw him first. He is yours.
I don't 'ike blonds myself.'
" 'lt was you at whom he was look
ing.' came the reply.
"'No; he was looking at you. I don't
like his mustache. .Tust look at him
now, conceited thing! ne is curling
" 'I think his mustache is very nice.'
said the first girl. "Don't look in his
direction so frequently or he will sus
pect us.'
" 'lie looks too slow to suspect any
thing. Besides, I can see him by look
ing' in the mirror, and he doesn't know
it. I am going' to size him tip again
now.' and' as she turned toward the
mirror so did I, and I caught her
glance square in the eyes. The young
woman flushed a bit and then pretend
ed to be looking out of the window.
The girl who admitted that I was not
bad to look at nudged> her friend and
with her nimble fingers said:
" 'His clothes fit him xvell, don't
they? Wouldn't he be angry if he
knew that we were talking 1 about him.
I think that he is nice.'
"It was with difficulty that I could
prevent myself from acknowledging
this compliment in sign language, but
I didn't want to spoil the fun. The
second girl looked at me again by way
of the mirror and then said:
" 'He is staring at us too much. Let's
look at his shoes and embarrass him.
He will think that there is something
wrong with them.'
" 'All right.' said my friend, and- two
pairs of eyes were turned on my shoes,
which I knew were all right. Being
forewarned, I was not embarrassed,
and I thrust my feet a little forward 1
so that they might be in full view.
" 'lt's no go,' said the second girl,
'and in a long experience it is the first
time that I ever failed at this trick. He
does not even look down at his shoes.
I will bet that he is awfully conceited.'
"They kept up a very free discussion
of my appearance, and when we
reached City IIa!l station I arose to go
out and they followed right behind.
The car had been well filled and the
girls were in a hurry. I stepped to one
side and in sign language said to the
one right behind me:
" 'Excuse me, lam sorry to be in
your way.'
"That girl rend my hands in amaze
ment, and I would not have missed the
expression of her face as her «yes met
mine for anything. It was a blush to
remember. Without explaining to the
other girl, who was behind her, she
grabbed her arm ar.d hustled her
about face and' out of the other door.
As I reached the platform I saw the
girl wliom I addressed explaining it to
the other girl, whose face indicated
that she was struggling between mor
tification and mirth. Just as they
turned toward the bridge both of them
looked back at :ne. I smiled and raised
my hat. They laughed and on they
went. It was a pleasant little enter
tainment for a down-town trip."—X.

Man I font Duties.
The fault-fir ding disposition is at the
root of the fault-finding habit of
speech. Learing to look on life with
clear eyes and a gentle discernment
of the best, we grow indifferent to pet
ty vexations and our souls refuse to
be thrown from their balance; our
equanimity is not disturbed by small
annoyances. The person who keeps
out of her countenance and her con
versation every look and word ex
pressive of Irritability with existing
circumstances will by and by become
known among her intimate acquaint
ances as n most agreeable member of
the home and of society. To cultivate
amiability on the one hand and to re
press discontent on the other hand are
manifest duties of all conscientious
people. Over and beyond this shall we
not endeavor to be always thankful
to Ilim in whose favor is life, and who
gives us so much richly to enjoy? —
