The Frescottvllle band picnic held at Sykesville last Friday was quite a success. Raspberries are plentiful this year, but the price of the berries Is not cor respondingly low. Noah Syphrit and sons are among the number roaming over the huckleberry mountain this week. Thos. W. Jenkins, of Lindsey, finds Reynoldsville a "Lulu" of a place to spend Sunday occasionally. The Ladies Aid Society of the M. E. church netted a snug little sum at the lawn festival Saturday evening. About fifteen passengers boarded the excursion train that left here at noon yesterday for Niagara Falls. William Buzzard, the young man who cut his windpipe last week by falling upon an axe, Is getting along nicely. It is estimated that there are almost eight hundred children in Jefferson county between 6 and 18 years of age who do not attend school. Rev. W. P. Murray, pastor of the M. E. church, will be present and occupy his pulpit next Sunday, July 31st, morning and evening. It is reported that the chestnut crop will be a good one this year. Not the wormy journalistic chestnut, but the bright brown fruit of the tree. JohnL. Sliffer, of Big Run, has a hankering for this section. He is a great Reed-er and consequently has had his name placed on The Star list. A man whoso mental faculties are somewhat deranged caused quite a com motion among some of the fomales on East Main street Monday afternoon. Prof. E. C. Shields, formerly a teachor in this borough, has been chosen assist ant principal of the Clearfield public schools, at a salary of $70 per month. A. J. Cressman's physique will no longer be seen around J. C. William's photograph gallery, as the young man has called it "quits" and will go else where. Fred Miller had his left thumb ripped up the middle by pick in the hands of his "pard" lost Friday morning while at work in Big Soldier. It was an accident. The Punxsutawney agricultural and driving park association has awakened from its lethargy and will give an exhi bition on its grounds the latter part of September. Will Schultze's hand accidently came in contact with a window In Butler's barber shop last evening. A broken window and an ugly cut in the wrist was the result. A little eight-year old girl of Luth- orsburg is suffering from a swollen arm wmcn tno jjuhois uourur says may result seriously. She attended a picnic and was bitten by a big bug .Aaron Rodgers, the marble cutter, done some very neat work on a marble slab to be placed at the head of Laura Stiver's grave, daughter of John T. Stiver of West Reynoldsville. On account of the repairs going on at the Lutheran church it will be closed next Sunday and the Sunday school and the morning services will be held in the Odd Fellows hull on Main street. A street soup fakir was the center of attraction on Main street Saturday evening. The gentleman was a fluent talker and gave or- interesting lecture on the fllthlness of all other soups but the one he handle. The members of the M. E. Sunday school who have not already got tholr tickets for the picnic Friday, can get thom at this office between one and five o'clock Thursday afternoon. Frank Ruster, who moved to Middles borough, Kentucky, few weeks ago, soon got tired of that state and has moved back to Pennsylvania. He is now a rosldent of East Stroudsburg, Monroe county, Pa. A Jolly party started for the hucklo borry ridge last evonlng, composed of tho following: Lulu E. Faust, Susie Reynolds, Lllllo McCrelght, Daniel StroiiHO and wife, Will, Mabel, John, Stella, Charley and Annie Strouse. Frank J. Muck, proprietor of Hotel McConnell, originated a novel plan last week for keeping tho flys off his guests whilo they succumb to the wooing Influence of nmrpheus during daylight hours. Nothing slow about Fftmk. David Wheeler's team created some excitement on Hill street early Monday morning by taking a little whirl around tho square without a driver. The buggy was upset and tho top thereof demolished, otherwise no damage done. David Stauffor, a groceryman of West Reynoldsville, has returned from a visit to Altoona, Creston, Ehensburg, Johns town, New Florence and a dozen other places. He took the jaunt for the bene fit of his health and feels greatly recup erated. Young James Butler, of Grant street, is quite a genius. He is continually getting up something new to ride on. The same material, with the necessary re-arrangemont, will be turned into a cart, wagon, voloclied or byclcle. He has othor contrivances. A howl has gone up from the DuBols Courier because their water works are not a success. During wot weather thoy have no trouble, but in the dry season their supply Is limited. Reyn oldsville people have reason to rejoice because we are blessed with a good water supply. Reverend Jcnkln, the man of color who Is holding campmeeting at differ ent places in this section, is giving Reynoldsville the "go-by." The night his meetings closed at DuBols,after the services, the floor was cleared, Roscoe's orchestra was on hand and the young folks engaged in a dance. John Gold, a man employed as a brake man at the Jefferson mine, Coal Glen, met with an accident Monday after noon that cost him his life. He was engaged In polling cars and had his leg crushed from four Inches below the knee to about six or seven Inches above the knee. The man died Monday eve ning. E. W. McMillan, the gentleman who has a saw mill on A. D. Deemer's land near Reynoldsville and who Is having an immense amount of bark delivered to the tannery here, narrowly escaped one day lust week from being ground under the wheels of a heavy lumber wagon, loaded with bark, by being thrown from the wagon. A few bruIsoB were tho only results. Mrs. Charles Arnold, whom we men tioned lost week as being near the portals of death, died Saturday after noon and was bulled In the Catholic cemetery at Brookvllle Monday after noon beside the little grave of her baby, that hod been burled the week before. A husband and three children mourn the loss of an affectionate wife and loving mother. Rev. A. B. Philips, of Forestvlllo, N. Y., preached an able and eloquent sermon in the Methodist Episcopal church Sunday morning on "Tho Im mortality of the Soul." His text was found in Job xlv: 14, "If a man die Bhall he live again?" The subject is a momentous one and the Reverend handled it in a masterly manner, his arguments were logical and his thoughts beautiful. The Sunday school of the Trinity Lutheran church will hold Its annual mission festival on Wednesday, August 8rd in Reynolds' grovo near town. Rev. D. M. Kemerer, of Pittsburg, and Rev. A. R. J. Grapple, of Ridgway, are expected to be present and make addresses appropriate to the occasion. All who desire to spend the day profit ably and pleasantly with said school are cordially invited to be present. The base bull nine went over to Big Run Saturday to play with the nine of that place. The game was a good one up to the seventh inning, each nine having but one score. The Reynolds ville pitcher went to bat and was hit on the muscle of the right arm which settled his pitching for that game. The Big Run boys got twenty scores in the last two Innings making the game 21 to 1 In favor of the Big Run nine. Silver Luke, the place to which the excursion of the Jr. O. U. A. M. are to go to on Sunday, July 31st, is a beauti ful sheet of water three and one-half miles long and one and one-half miles wide; situated sixty miles southeast of Buffalo and fifty miles southwest of Rochester on a spur of the B., R. & P. Rullwuy. There is a flne fleet of sail, steam and row boats; good fishing, buth ing, &o. The campmeeting is in session from July 20th to August 20th. It is a cool, heuthful, restful summor resort from which tho visitor always loaves with regret for fear tholr eye may never again rest on a scene so beautiful. Cut Hit Leg. Daniel Hamilton, a woodsman who was working on David Brumbaugh's job, Bllpped and fell last Thursday afternoon with an axe In his hand. The axe struck him on the left leg, below tho knee, cutting an ugly wound throe Inches in length. i A Big Sprout. Curt Strouse came Into town lost Friday with a curiosity that he found in their collar. It was a potato with the longest sprout attached that we have ever seen. The sprout measured eight foot, two nnd one-quarter Inches. There was another sprout on the same potato but it was only four feet two inches Cold Wave and Frost Warnings. H. Alex. Stoko received a communi cation a few days ago from the Chief of the Weather Service Division of the TJ. S. Department of Agriculture at Washington, stating that It is proposed during tho coming autumn of this year and spring of 18!).') to telegraph warn ings of anticipated frosts to each weather signal display station, which receives forecasts by telegram, at gov ernment's expense. Farmer's Day. Next Friday will be "Farmer's Day" at tho Clarion Assembly. A large nilmber of tillers of the soil, with tholr main stand-bys their wives are ex pected to attend the Assembly that day. Three excellent speakors, Mortimer Whitehead, Leonard Rhone, Master of the State Grange, and J. T. Allman, are booked for addresses on that particular day. All interested In farming should not miss this opportunity of enjoying the privileges afforded by the Assembly. It was the Cat. Jacob Sutter paraded tlirough his nice new home one night lost week with a shot gun in his hand looking for what he supposed to be robliers who were making an attempt to rob him of his earthly ixwsesslons. A careful search was made but no one found. Mr. Sutter returned to his room and soon heard the same noise again. He went down stairs, opened the pantry door and there found the secret of the disturbance. The Tom Cat had been accidently shut in the pantry and was making desperate attempts to gain his freedom. Never Could Read. C. F. Hoffman, the jeweler and opti cian, may be an expert in fitting glasses on the eyes, but he has learned by ex perience that he is unable to furnish glasses that will enable a man to read who has sadly neglected his school day opportunity and cannot distinguish words and characters. The optician tried two or three pair of glasses on his patient, each time handing the gentle man a card and projioundlng the ques tion, " can you read now ?" The opti cian received the same answer every tlmo, " I can't read." Finally Mr. Hoff man comprehended the situation and gave the man glosses with which he could see, but not read. 8unday Resort. The swing near the tannery is becoming a rendezvous for beer guzzlers, card players and wumen of disrepute. Profanity, obscene language, fights, &c, are the amusements of tho day. Some young mon visit the place who pose as respectablo ooplo, while the majority are tho scum of a certain locality. Tho young man who has so far lost his respect for doconcy as to be found in Buch a gang cannot complaint if ho is classed with them. It would be woll for tho officers of WinBlow township to see that such a cankerous spot on common decency be amputated imme diately. Dry Weather Republicans. Announcements wore mode lost week in both the town papers, and quarter sheet bills were posted up, stating the Republicans of Reynoldsville borough and vicinity would moot in Centennial hall last Friday evening for the purpose of organizing a Republican marching club. The meeting was a complete fizzle. A friendly shower, lasting about ten minutes, visited tho town at eight o'clock, which is accredited for the non-attendance of the Republicanism of Reynoldsville. Tho enthusiasm of the followers of Harrison and Reld must be at a low ebb during the present hot weather. Wages of Sin. Tho good book tells us that "the wages of sin Is death." A young man of DuBols came very nearly pushing tho veil of eternity aside and stepping behind it on account of his proclivity to tread in unforbidden paths. Thursday night of last week James Murnhy and four or five boon companions were not seeking their "virtuous couches," but were following three young ladles whom they thought were not of good repute. The young men were warned to retrace their steps and not follow the girls, who live several miles from DuBols, but thoy heedod not the advice given until two or three whizzing messengers from a revolver gave warning. James Mur phy was shot in the head. The girls were taken to Clearfield Saturday and placed In jail and were to receive a hearing yesterday. Church Repaired. Repairs have boon going on at tho Lutheran church for the last three weeks, inside and outside, which Im proves its apponianeo very much and rnakoB It a beautiful little church. It will bo re-oK-ncd with special services on the first Sunday in August. Minis ters from abroad will be in attendance Rev. D. M. Kemerer, of Plttabvrg. will preach in the morning and Rev. .1. H. Rltter, of Shaiihondule, Clarion county, Is expected to preach In Gorman in tho afternoon at 3 o'clock and in English in the evening. Tho general public is kindly Invited to bo present at all theso services. Almost Resulted In Death. Two Roynoldsvlllo boys, Frederick Johnston and Chester Holnap, both about eight years old, found a pint of whiskey In Hclmtp's cuplsiurd Monday ufternoon. The boys sampled the liquor until there was very little left In the bottle. Both lads become Intoxicated. Young Johnston must have taken the lurgost sample, as It was a mutter of life and death with him for awhile. Johnston was found UMin tho street about 4:30 in a pnralizcd condition. A doctor was called who administered antidotes, but not until three o'clock Tuesday morning was tho boy conscious. The little fellow was in a critical condi tion for some time. The Belnap boy was found in the barn, although very drunk, yet not In a dangerous condition. Trip to the Mountains. The huckleberry party lost week composed of Hays, Mincer, Westenburg, Dunn, Rhodes, Schultze and Scott had their first experience at West Liberty when a "spalpeen" of that place throw a piece of iron and hit Mr. Dunn on the head, cutting a hole through his hat and Into his head. After arriving at their destination one of the horses came very nearly going to "homeland." but was Induced to remain on this mundane sphere a little longer by hav ing a quart of rank liquid "snake poison killer" toured down its throat. The fellow who had provided so carefully against the reptile's bite, stood by with a sad countenance and watched tho"fire water" disappear. Nothing but the thoughts of walking home could have Induced him to part with the liquor. Only a Lie. It was rumored on the streets to con siderable extent that some women were out In the Big Soldier berry patch last week and there found a child about two years old that had cried itself almost to death and the women could find no one who claimed the waif, and that one of them brought the child home with her. The little fellow could soy "papa," "mamma" and "Tommy." There were other facts that would Indicate that there was some foundation In the strange case. An investigation was made by a representative of this paper and it was found to have been a "yarn" splnned by one skilled In that especial line. The only foundation for the story was the fact that at least one woman was at Big Soldier and heard a baby cry. Our informant thinks the baby must hove been forsaken by its mother, but she did not go to see. We Need It. A very Important question now storing the citizens of Reynoldsville In the face Is that of sewerage, and at no distant day the people will find It nec essary to grapple the question In an earnest manner if we are to become a flourishing town, and whether we will It or not, a business boom Is slowly, but surely creeping In upon us. There are many reasons why we should have a good Bewor system here, and there are no reasons, save an outlay of a little cash, why we should not be thus pro tected from filth and disease that accumulate where sewers are neglected. Not only the sewer question, but there are others of Importance to the town which we expect to devote space In bringing before the people In the near future. We do not want to give the people an overdose of improvements at one time and will, therefore, take up one subject at a tlmo. Wrenched Hit Back. Even a burgoss gets into "slippery places" unlessahe is wary. Monday of last week our worthy magistrate, in company with H. H. Mincer, the terror to evil doers, A. E. Dunn, and a few others, hied himself to the mountain ous regions of Clearfield county, where the tempting unsophisticated huckle berries lure many lovers of exciting ad ventures, and whilo he was standing on a rock in the solitude of the "snak land" meditating upon the responsi bility that rests on a man who is elected to act as burgoss of Reynoldsville, his foot slipped and quicker than he can say, "five dollars and costs," he thought about seven hundred Inhabitants of the nether regions were having a "ho-down" in the neighborhood of his spinal col umn. A buggy was procured and Harry Mincer brought Mr. Hays Into the in habited part of Jhe county, and word was sent to Rc$nofdsville and Ed. C. Burns took a carrluge and went after the disabled officer. Mr. Hays has since been spending most of his time reclin ing on the soft side of a lounge. About 100 teachers from Clarion and adjoining oountles are expected to attend the Summer Term of Clarion Norinul. All for Five Dollars. Tho much talked of McCrelght-Ayres "false teeth case," which was brought bo prominently before the public on tho eve of Miss Ayres' marrlago, was tried before Esq. E. T. McGaw last Friday. The participants in this hubbub are Dr. J. S. McCrelght and Mrs. Llella Snyder, nee Ayres. The charges against the dentist wore trespass and debonlsas portatls, and amount of damage claimed, 2IM.IHt. Almost tho entire day was spent in giving testimony and hearing tho attorneys pleas. C.Mitchell appear ed for the plaintiff and M. M. Davis for the defendant. Esq. McGaw will with hold his decision until tho 30th Inst. Dr. McCrelght done dentist work for Miss Ayres almost one year ago. A bill was presented and paid, but at that time the teeth were on a temiMirnry plate and wore after wards placed on a iiormanont plate. The plaintiff claims tho bill puid In cluded tho permanent plate, while tho defendant claims it did not. The matter was not satisfactorily adjusted and on the evonlng before Miss Ayres' marriage tho doctor called on the young lady, as ho was going away for a few days, and asked that the account be settled. The young lady claimed that as the five dollars was for repair ing the teeth, that she did not owe it to him, and, therefore, would not pay what she did not owe. She .gave the doctor the teeth to look at. The con versation waxed warm and the doctor loft the house with the teeth in his possession, saying he would leave thom with a justice and they could be return ed to the mouth of the soon to be bride when the "V" was paid. The prospec tive bride employed another dentist and before the dawning of the delightful day a new sot of teeth was ready to be present at the wedding. Thus the above case was tho outcome of a difference of five dollars between the parties. In all probability the judge of Jefferson county will hear a recital of the entire cose before the ending thereof. A Rural Chap't Experience. An unwary youth from the rural dis trict came into Reynoldsvlllo Saturday and about noon went. Into tho store of S. Ellis to look around and perhaps make a purchase. During his visit in the store an altercation took place over a pair of shoos which resulted in the young man getting a bad looking eye. The young man's story places all the blame on the Jews, whilo they claim he wanted trust and as they would not grant it, he was going to carry the shoes away with him without their permission and for that reason a lump raised near his loft eye about the size of a hen egg. The young man got a warrant out for the merchants which was placed in the hands of Chlef-of-Pollce Adolsperger. After the war rants hod been served the chief-of-police took the rural chap in charge, for whom ho hod been looking since the 2nd of July, the young mon hovlng that night broken a whisky bottle on the head of an inoffensive Swede. William Boiloy, the culprit, was locked up for several hours. The merchants, whom he hod arrested, Bottled with him for about twenty dollars, just enough to get him out of his difficulty. The young man was thus enabled to square accounts with the law and return home with a mournful eye. Jefferson County Schools.
