A Hot Footed Chase Through Clearfield.
Early Monday morning, just as the
B., R. & P. train pulled Into the Mar
ket street station, there began a merry
chase down Market street to the Wind
sor hotel corner, although none of
Clearfield's papers were aware of It.
The Beet footed runners were the
Sheriff of Jefferson county, fresh from
Brookvllle, and three youthful prison
ers whom he was taking to the Hunt
ington Industrial Reformatory. The
interesting party tore down the street
and boarded the Pennsylvania morning
train tor Tyrone. The young men were
handcuffed and seemed as anxious to
make the train as the resourceful High

GATHERING OP THE CLANS
Celebrate Birthday Anniversary of Alex
Watson at Soldier.
It was whispered about last week
that Alex Watson, of Big Soldier, was
nearlng his forty-sixth birthday and
that the incident was worthy of notice.
Tbis was understood la the proper vein,
subsequently, and Friday evening last a
a largo number of bis friends from
DuBols and surrounding territory sur
prised him at his homo. And such a
time as was bad! Those bonnle Scoth
men did the occasion up In proper fash
ion. Dancing and singing were among
the flings at pleasure reeled off while
the fine refreshments were another
elegant feature. Thomas H. Alexander,
of DuBois, was chairman of the evening
and called off the events on the pro
gram in emphatic style. Mr. Bell, of
Big Run, was first with a song while
Mr. Hoyt, of this city, followed with
"Far awe frae Bonnie Scotland." Wil
liam Mulr concluded the gay time
with several selections so rich In melo
dy that hardly one in the assemblage
could refrain from dancing. DuBois

REYNOLDSVILLE IN EVIDENCE.
At Least Eleven Hundred Residents of
Neighboring Town Were Here.
Yesteruay might well have been des
ignated Reynoldsvllle Day, since the
citizens of that town were In evidence
everywhere. ' Starting with the first
car. that left Reynoldsvllle yesterday
morning until well un to two o'clock in
the afternoon every car leaving the
place was crowdud to its capacity and
by noon it was estimated that at least
eleven hundred citizens participated in
the celebration. '
Through cars ran every thirty min
utes, and toward nightfall four cars loft
this place with only a few minutes in
tervening. Every car was filled to the
gunwale and it was well on toward
midnight before the passengers could
experience anything like comfort on
their -journey home. No rates were
given, or,the number of Reynoldsvllle
ites would have probably been swelled
to close to the two thousand mark.

Object to Big Hats.
We notice that ladles, of all ages and
conditions, go about during the week,
visiting their neighbors, shopping, etc,
in their bare heads; they remove their
hats in the opera house, and at the
Y. M. C. A and also at prayer meet
ing Wednesday evening, but when Sun
day comes, and the people gather for
preaching service, many persist , In
wearing their hats, to the great in
convenience, and discomfort of people
sitting behind them. Now it would
certainly be a nice thing for every lady
to remove her hat during the church
service. We would, like to see every
lady do this. To our certain knowl
edge men are kept away from church
service by reason of ladles wearing
their big hats In the church. A man
said to us this week that he had an
much right to smoke a cigar in church
as a lady bad to wear her big hat. And
he was right. Won't the ladies think
the matter over carefully? Brook vlllo

The numerous entrances to the old
town of Rothenburg are guarded by
beautiful watchtowers, which are in
habited by impoverished old women,
who rent their airy lodgings for a
nominal sum. v The red twinkle of
their lamps high over the dusky streets
of Rothenburg at night for it is as
mediaeval in Its lighting as In many
other .ways Is very charming In ef
fect The walls of Rothenburg are a
constant delight to visitors, who, by
dint of much squeezing through nar
row passageways nud groping in dark
ness, are able to make a circuit of the
city, getting glimpses on the way
through loopholes of the green country
outside. Wondrous views of the town
are also to be had from many of the
dlBtnnt hills. At Bunset the sight of
Its graceful towers and clutter of red
roof tops is like a fair vision of ro
mance. The city blazes for a - mo
ment in a fiery mist, then suddenly
melts, mirage-like, in the gntherlng
dusk, leaving a sense of something
born of dream, the illusion of an en
chanter's wand. Rothenburg Letter to

"I have moved into a perfect gem of
an apartment on the sixth floor of one
of those new bouses," said the woman
who paints china, "and am reveling In

overbalancing disadvantage?" asked
"The thought of the cozy quarters at
such moderate cost colors my climb
with the roseate hue of optimism.''

Food of the Chinese.
In the Revue d'Hyglene Dr. Male
gnon, who lived for many years in
China, gives some cnrlous details of
the food of the Chinese. This is what
he says of the sons of heaven and the
way they eat eggs: "The Chinese are
great eaters of eggs, which they take
hard boiled. One finds them In all the
roadside places for refreshment The
Celestials have an expression, 'Eggs of
a hundred years.' The eggs are not
always a century in age, but one Is
able' to get them of many years' stand
ing. The Celestials have a preference
for the egg of the duck or goose. They
are placed with aromatic herbs In
slaked lime for a period, the minimum
time of treatment being five or six
weeks. Under the influence of time
the yoke liquefies and takes a dark
green color. The white coagulates and
becomes green. The product of the
eggs, which has a strong odor, from
which a stranger betakes himself
quickly, the Chinese eat as hors
d'oeuvres, and It is said to have the
taste of lobster."
