PA. THURSDAY. JULY 31. 19:3 NUMBER 1599 LITERARY CLUB PICNICS AT RIVERSIDE PARK. On Friday, July 25th, the members of the once famous Reading Club, of Meyersdale, but which has not per- sued its literary work for some time, and which was thought to be entirely dead, gave evidence of a splendid res- erection by its feast of reason and flow of song at Riverside Park. A number of the members from Meyersdale went to the park on the 3:30 car to get things in order for the <‘big doin’s.”” The members of the club from Salisbury and others from Meyersdale arrived on the 5:30 car, when the frolic and fun began without further ceremony. The ladies soon demonstrated that their time was not wholly given to literary pursuits but that their skill in domestic science was only a little short of their intellectual acquirements. Prof. Kretchman was chosen ‘Head Master’’ for the occa- Son and immediately the mandate went forth, ‘‘begin.’’ Nuf ced. During the meal hour musical selec- tions were rendered, and because of his well-known ability as a ‘‘musical director.”” A. S. Gleesner was called upon to select, amuse and lead the first, selection. ‘‘Auld Lang Syne’’ was chosen and with the assistance of the members he soon found the time and proper do (dough.) It was at once apparent that every one had come for a royal good time A committee was quickly appointed with Mrs. Harry Cook chairman, to prepare a literary program for the occasion as follows: “Choice quotations fiom favorite author by all members of the club.” These quotations evidenced familiarity with all the great classics, and were rich in wit and wisdom. Impromptu speech by A. 8. Gless- ner, Topic: The Peaches and Cream. Impromptu speech by Harry Cook, Topic: Picnics, blest and cust. These two speeches were frequently inter- rupted with prolonged applause, and were pronounced by those who heard them. to be literary gems of unusmal merit. Debate, Topic: ‘‘Resolved, that womenshould vote.”” Affirmative Miss Myra Lichliter; Negative, Charles : Phillips. This debate was intensely "interesting aud profoundly edifying. ‘The merits of the question were decid- ed in favor of the negative because the men only had a “right to vote.” Valedictory and Eulogy by W. H. Kretchman, assisted by A. S.Glessner. ‘These eulogistic and valedictory re- marks brought many handkerchiefs to the eyes of the hearers. During the solemnity of the occasi- on, the last hymn ‘was announced and all joined heartily in singing ‘‘I found a pea nut.” HARRISON'S WATER PROBLEM IN COURT. Judge W. H. Ruppel, on Friday morning, issued a rule on M. J. Shaulis to show cause why he should not be brought into court on an attachment for violation of the Court’s injunction restraining Mr. Shaulis and Albert Hetzer from interfering with a pipe line carrying water from a spring on the Shaulis farm to the town of Har- rison, the mining operations of the Quemahoning Creek Coal Company. The injunction had been granted on petition of theeoal company. Shaulis, it is claimed, has stopped the supply of water from his spring to the people of Harrison by plugging the pipe walling up the spring, erect- ing a building about it, locking the door and employing Mr. Hetzer to guard it. : The people of Harrison,it is said,are dependent upon this spring for their water supply. At present they are getting water from Quemahoning Creek, which is not as pure asit/might be. REACH AGREEMENT, In the equity case of the Quema- honing Creek Coal Cempany vs. M. “J. Shaulis, of Lincoln twp., the at- tachment proceedings for contempt of court have been abandoned. A tentative agreement has been reach- ed under which Mr. Shaulis will permit water to flow froma spring on his property through pipes to Harri- son, a coal town, until a final hearing on the bill of equity.” FRACTURED ARM. Mary Jeannette, the nine year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Oscar Allen, had the misfortune to fall and brake her right arm, while cross- ing the bridge near the old Laundry site. This bridge has been in a dan- condition for a long time. tient. | dence. ANOTHER SOMERSET COUNTY SHOOTING.

Ina revolver duel, Jim Sampwell, also an Italian and companion of Phillips was shot through under the left shoulder and is in a hospital at Johnstown. Long, who is an American. declares that Sampwell was shot by Phillips, be- fore the latter was killed.

This morning while on hisway to deliver milk to a nearby town he met Phillips and Sampwell in a buggy driving toward the Long home. Long and Phillips whipped ont their revolvers and Phil- lips fell ded, first having, it is de- clared, shot his companion. “‘Justifiable homicide’’ was the yer- dict of Coroner Henry Kimmell’s jury at Ralphton, on Monday night after hearing the evidence in the case of Josiah Long, charged with the mur- der of Carl Phillips on Sunday. Mrs. Long was the principal wit- ness at the inquest, admitting that she had partaken of beer and wine in company with Phillips ‘during her husband’s absence.

The miners of the State Line Coal Company, operated by D. B. Zimmer- man in South Rockwood, are out on a strike for more wages.

The mine is closed down until the wage question can be adjusted or new men imported for the machines. eel eee. STRUCK BY LIGHTNING Lightning struck and fired the barn of Charley Stutzman, two miles south of Buckstown, on Monday. The fire was put out before much damage was done. LICENSE GRANTED. Judge Ruppel on Tuesday granted the Windber brewing company a licen- se, the Superior Court having recently reversed the Somerset court’s action in refusing a license to that concern at license court last spring. Judge Ruppel filed the following opinion: ‘“The opinion of the Superior court quotes from the ruling of this court in this application,in which a conclusion is stated based on some of the evi- It is not the intention of this court when that opinion was written to state the entire evidence upon which the conclusion was based, and only that much of the evidence was refer- red to as bore upon the question of fact in dispute; the other facts which were essential were assumed because there was no controversy as to them, and were I sitting as a juror or as a chancellor, my conclusion would be the same as it was in the former rul- ing. I believe the whole purpose and effort of the sale and delivery refer- red to in this case were to evade the criminal law. I cannot regard it in any other light; but believing that I am bound by the ruling of the Super- ior court, and as I understand that opinion, I feel it is my duty to grant the license. And now, to-wit, July 29th, 1913. upon due consideration, the license is granted and the bond approved. By the Court, William H. Ruppel. ‘tock-Marshall Construction company. MERCIER—SHIPLEY.

ROUND HOUSE COMPLETED. Improvement work costing thous- ands of dollars, has been completed by the Western Maryland Railway Co., at Cumberland, Md., this work being a part «f the extensive new terminals being built by the com- pany at that point. The improye- ments include the new round house, power plant, machine shop and en- gine terminals, located at Maryland Junction, all of which will be ready to be put in service by August 1st. The new round house is modern in every respect. It is’ of steel and concrete construction, and contains all the latest devices for engine use. The building has twenty stalls, and is of sufficient size to accommo- date the motive power of the W. M., at this point for some time to come. A number of contractors fig- ured in this construction of the round house, while the MecClintock- Marshall - Construction company, of Pittsburgh, furnished the necessary structural steel. Adjoining the new round house is the new power plant, which will fur- nish electricity for the illumination of the former, and also the neces- sary power for operating the ma- chine shop. The shop is equipped for light repairs to engines and cars, but particularly locomotives, The engine yard terminals are of sufficient size to meet the growing needs of the railway company, and will facilitate the movement of lo- comotives in and out of the yards. THE SUFFRAGETTES. Statistics of the United States Bureau of Education show that four States have women at the head of their state school department.

In Montana twenty- nine of the thirty county superinten- dents are women, and there are 495 women county superintendents in the entire United States. To the already large list of import- ant newspapers which feature woman suffrage news because it is demanded by readers is added the Boston Journal.
