The day had l'in looked forward
to with many il'asurMo anticipa
tions, it being tho date tet for the
marriage of Josso Moruingitar and
Miss Mary E., daughter of Junius
Bowser, of tho same township. The
friends and relatives of the young
couple began to gather curly iu tho
day, and tho wedding was duly cele
brated shortly after 2 o'clock, Ilov.
A. R. Lambert, of this place, offici
ating. After the wedding dinner
was over tho young folks were en
joying themselves in various ways,
when Bobort Moruingstar proposed
to his brothor-in law, George B.
Sponeybargor, of this place, that
they get thoir guns aud go up an ad
jacent hollow to look for game. The
guns were procurod and loaded, and
as they wore panning tho houso the
bride of an hour made a remark to
Mr. Sponeybargor to "baud me that
gun, 'till I show you how to shoot a
turkey." Mrs. Morningstar was sit
ting on her husband's knee at an
open window, her one arm being
around his neck at the time. Mr.
Sponeybargor essayed to reach her
the gun, and when the muzzle had
almost approached her hand,
through some . manner the weapon
wa dif oharejed, the load, (aNo4
hell,' holding ah average of 130 shot,
No. 12 guage) striking young Morn
ingstar almost squarely in the centre
of the forehead, blowing away a
large portion of the skull and scat
tering his brains all over the room.
The wife, guests and all wore hor
rified at the occurrence, and a mes
senger was hurriedly dispatched to
this place. Coroner Greenberg aud
Dr. G. G. liar man were Hoon en
route and on arriving at Mr. Morn
ingstars' found tho dead man just ns
he had fallen when struck by tho
shot. The circumstancos of thocane
being purely accidental, no inquest
was deemed necessary, aud the body
was turned over to tho proper per
sons for burial.
The accident has cast a gloom ov
er the community, and nothing but
words of sympathy for tho distress
ed participants was heard.
Deceased was born Sept. 20, 187C.
The funeral sorvtces will bo hold at
the homo of Mr. Morningstar at 9 a.
m. Friday, and interment will be
held at Uawn's cemetery.
A Victim of a Practical Joke."
On Saturday afternoon II. D.
Stahlnecker, the blacksmith at the
West end of the borough, and Wur
ren Bowersox, a son of Curtin Bow
ersox, as a joke poured a strong
acid down the back of John Wagnor,
the twelve year old son of Lank
Wagner. The acid used is sim
ilar to sulphuric acid and had
been utilized by the blacksmith to
burn corns out of horses' hoofs. Iu
a few minutes after the acid had
been applied to tho boy tho solution
ate the seat out of tho boy's trousors
and began gnawing at his flesh.
Any person can imagine the amount
of pain the boy endured whon it is
known that a single drop of undilut
ed acid applied to human flesh
causes pain that endures for an
hour. For a time it was feared the
boy would lose his life, but hopes
are now entertained for the boy's
recovery. It is dangerous to fool
with hydrocholorio, nitrio or sul
phurio acid and as yet no one knows
what may result from this unwar
ranted and unjustified attempt, to
play a practical joke.

Tho Post presents in this issuo n
cut and biographical sketch of Dr.
George P. Millor, late of Middle
burgh. Dr. Miller was born January uinth,
167, at tho old Miller homestead in
Peun township, where his parents
still rosido and which plaoo was first
the property of Frederiok Miller.the
original ancestor who acquired titlo
to it October 2.1th. 17ss. Ho was tho
third child and second son of Chas.
Miller and Lydia, his wifo, youngest
daughter of Philip Kautz, deceased
and was fifth in linoal descent from
Frederick Miller. Ho was named
for his paternal aud maternal grand
fathers, his great grandfather on
his father's sido of tho house having
also boon named George.
He was educated in tho common
schools of his native township, at
the Missionary Institute, Selins
grove, taught school for threo years
and was graduated April 1891 from
the Mftdico-Chirarginal College, of
Philadelphia.' ' He located in Mid
dleburgh about the first of May of
that year and mot with siugular sue
coss from the start of his profession
al practice. In September ISM while
driving with somo friends to tho
Lewisburg Fair ho was seized with
a sevoro cold, which settled upon
his lungs and eventuated in con
sumption or tuberculosis. It was
apparent to his family aud friends
that ho was quite perceptibly failing
in leal th but dospito tho earnest en
treaties of his friends ho refused to
quit his practico and seek medical
relief, until it was too lute to arrest
the progroos of tho ailment.
In Sopteuibor 1S')1, upon tho ad
vice of Dr. Shoomakor 'of Philadel
phia bo wont to Ashoville, North
Carolina, hoping to gain benefit from
a residence in a high climato. He
remained for eight mouths and his
physical appearauco upon his return
seemed to indicate that ho hud suc
ceeded iu, at least, checking further
progress of the trouble, if, indued ho
had not materially gained iu many
respects as to tho condition of his
health. He was fully awuro ut all
times, a'tor his consultation with
Dr. Shoemaker, who was oue of his
Professors at College, of the immi
nent peril to his life and regretted,
not so much for himself as for suf
fering humanity tho world ovor.tuat
the profession to which ho belonged
could do nothing but theorizo,
spooulate upon and prayerfully re
commend, what ut best was only an
uncertain precaution, when tho ter
rors of tuberculosis bad ouco made
thomselvos manifest iu tho patient.
After his return from tho South he
spent two mouths at his father's
homo and then wont to Kune, Penn
sylvania, on tho top of tho Allegheny
Mountains in M'Kean county. Tho
air there although vory puro and en
tirely froe from humidity failed to
afford him any marked relief and
steadily sinking he expired ou Wed
nesday, Septembor 18th last at two
o'clock P. M. Dr. Evan O'Neil Kane,
a nephew of Dr. Kane of Arctic fame
gave bis patient, Dr. Millor, vigilant
and unremitting attention in bis
Sanatarium, but nono roalized hot
ter than himself that be was past all
human skill, and having made all re
paration and preparation common
with those who stand in the presence
of death, he passed away tranquil
ly without a murmur of regret at
bis early demise.
Log Catchers Beaten.
I'rum Huubury Item.
A caso of oonsiderablo interest to
lumbermen and log catchers living
along tho river, was tried iu the Sny
der county oourt in Middleburg this
week. It was a test caso aud for tho

by Ed. XL Hummel against (J. P.
Fisher, N. a Fisher, S. A. Hterner,
J. H. Baley, F. IL Smith and II. W.
ILiupt of Solinsgrove. Tho writ of
rcploviu was issuod to recover tho
possession of a largo lot of log that
were caught in tho flood of '14 whon
the Williamsport boom broke and
millions of fee, of logs aud lutubor
were swept down tho Susquehanna
river. The logs iu disputo wore se
cured on the west bank of tho river
Somo time after tho freshet,
agents of the Lumbermen's Ex
change, of Williamsport, woro sent
out to hunt np all tho logs that wero
caught along the river, with inst ruc
tions to pay the catchers and salvage
due them according to the exchanges'
understanding of the law, which is
fifty conts per 1000 feet. Here is
whore the disputo aroso. Tho log
cutchors refused to settle, at that
rate, demanding fifty conts per log.
Not being able to settle, tho logs
were sold by the Lumbermen's Ex
change to Eu. M. nummol and to
got possession of thorn ho resorted
to the replevin proceedings.
The trial of the case did not reach
the real point so as to decide what
the legal prioo for catching logs is,
as it was cut hort by reason of some
material irroj -ularity in the filing of
the list of lor i before a justice of th

Baaio as is provided by Act of As

fects the defendants woro not nblu
to get that port of their ovidouco bo

cause of tho catchers, consequently,
tho court directed a verdict in favor
of tho plaintiff aud against tho de
fendants. Tho plaintiff was represented by
attorneys A. W. Potter, of Selins
grove, Ex-Judge Bucher, of Lowis
burg, and Attornoy General McCor

dants' attorneys were Charles Hower
and Goorgo W. Long, Esq., of Se
