as superintendent, and Mrs. J. M. Hays,
Misses Eleanor Rood, Eveline Sochrlst,
Mildred Sechrlst and Olive Jones as
teachers, Julia Kirk, organist, and Mary
Harris, secretary. The object of the
organization is to teach the young poo
ple to be temperate in all things and to
abstain from the use of intoxicating
liquor as a beverage. The Legion is
undenominational and meets every Fri
day afternoon at 4.00 o'clock in the M.
E. church. A cordial and earnest invi
tation is extended by the superintend
ent to all the boys and girls of Reyn
oldsvllle to attend these meetings.
On the editorial page of The Star will
be found the announcement of Jas. E,
Long, of BrookvUle, for Assembly,
Mr. Long was born and reared in Jeff
erson county, the early years of his life
were spent in tilling the soil. He en
gaged in the merchantile and lumber
business, becoming an extensive lumber
dealer. He was the first lumberman of
Jefferson county to adopt the monthly
pay system. Has always been a staunch
Republican; served the country in the
time of her noed. In 1880 he was elect
ed as a member of the Assembly for
Jefferson oounty. While in the Legis
lature he voted for the monthly pay
and anti-store order bill which was
afterwards declared unconstitutional.
He also voted for the amendment of
"an act to limit the hours of labor oon
stitutlng a day's work in this Commcn-
weaitn to eight Hours."
Two 8lory Brick.
A real estate deal was consummated
lost Monday afternoon the object of
which we are pleased to note. Burgess
J. M. Hays purchased from C. C. Gib
son the property on Main street where
Esq. MitGaw has his office. Considera
tion 2,rt50.00. Mr. Hays is to got pos
session on the first of June when he will
immediately commence tearing down
the old frame structure now standing
and will build a twostory brick. What
the new building will he used for Is to
be found out In the future, as Mr. Hays
Is loath to tell. While we are unable to
Inform our readers as to all the tacts In
the case, yet we rejoice that the old
frame structure will be raxed to the
ground to give place to a brick building.
May the day hasten when many more
such transformations shall take place
LATElt. II. Alex. Stoke, the druggist,
Is the gentleman for whom Mr. Hays
purchased the projorty. Mr. Stoke
will use the proposed new store room
for his drug business. Alex, has suc
ceeded In business through being ener
getic and enterprising.
A Weighty Body.
Rcynoldsvllle has a body of council-
men that mean business, and will not
be trifled with. The Burgess and police
are not slow tn enforcing the law. If
the present state of affairs continue we,
as citizens of this borough, will have
to be law abiding and as strict as the
Pharisee. After while a young man
will not even be allowed to burn a love
letter on the street, and as for the
housewife, she will not be permitted to
empty the contents of the family coffee
pot out of the kitchen window. It Is
barely possible that there will be a "let
up" before such strictness shall prevail,
although the law now forbids the burn
ing of paper on the streets. It is useless
to rebel, for If 1,1(14 pounds, avoirdu
pois, como down uon a man he will
certainly be crushed. The average
weight of the council Is 194 pounds.
Tho heaviest 240 and the lightest 104.
Not in it.
Tho rumor that tho tannery at this
place Is to l)o shut down for sixty days,
is without the sunctlon of Halt, Vaughn
&Co., proprietors. They did not enter
Into the agreement made by leather
dealers at New York recently to close
their tanneries for sixty days which Is
done to clear tho market of an overstock,
although over one hundred tanneries
entered Into such an agreement. The
proprietors of this tannery prefer to be
at liberty to run their business when It
suits them to do so. Although the tan
nery may shut down for a short time,
yet there have been no such Indications
manifested on tho part of tho proprlo

' .' i Thrown From a Pony, i " '
Amolla Morrrw, 11 year old daughter
of Jos. 81 Morrow, the merchant, nar
rowly escaped death or serious Injury
Monday afternoon, A few scratches
about tlM face and badly bruised knees
were the extent of injury. Mr. Morrow
has a gentle little pony and was giving
his daughter and Lydla Mulllnger less
ons Monday forenoon In horseback rid
ing. At noon Amelia hud come to the
conclusion that she was an export rider
and told her papa that In the afternoon
she would make Lucie the pony be-
llovo that she was Mertle Peek No. 2.
Soon after the noon hour Mertle No. 2
mounted her little mustang and forget
ting, just a trifle, her papa's Instruc
tions to wait until he was ready, the
young rider rode up Third street and
near Thos. Shields' house a newspapor
that was lying In the street, was caught
up In the brisk breeze and frightened
the pony.' Tho animal quickly turned
to go the other way. Amelia lost her
Mertle Pock grit, let go the reins,
screamed and grabbed the horns of the
saddle and the pony made a hasty return
trip down the hill. Those who witness
ed the scene expected to see the young
miss dashed to the ground. Ca-znr
Ferris ran In front of the pony at the
Commercial hotel and stopped tt. Ame
lia lot go her death-like grip and fell to
the ground uninjured with the excep
tion of a few bruises and badly shaken
up. The ambition that was at Its
zenith at noontide to become an exiiert
rider went down behind the hill of dis
appointment long before the sun disap
peared behind the western hills.
One New School Building Sure
The school directors have decided to
build one new school building at least
and will give the citizens, by social
election, an opxrtunity to vote as to
whether two new buildings, one In each
end of town, shall be erected In place of
one. As to the location of the new
house, if only one, we are unnblo to state.
The board, as mentioned last week, look
ed around for sites and have In view a
lot near tho Sunkey pii)Hrty on Jackson
street, for the east end building, bihI a
lot near C. C. Gibson's property on Hill
street, for west end. The Isiard meets
either thlsor to-morrow evening and will
then come to some definite conclusion.
They will do whut they consider the best
for all concerned, but if they were tolls
ten to the many suggestions offered as
to how this question should be settled,
they would have a conglomeration of
Ideas that would bo sufficient to confound
steam engine. The Star will not ad
vise these gentlemen, who have boon
elected to their osltion by the people,
what they should do as we think it
would be useless. It Is an Important
question and should bo viewed only In
tho light of the future benefit of our
thriving town, and not in the interest of
one man or (me end of town. Whatever
action the board may take In the matter
they will be censured by some people.
There aro always people who see things
their way and no other.
Tho Prohibitionists of this place hold
a meeting In Centennial hall Saturday
evening. Notwithstanding tho inclem
ent weather the hall was packed. The
meeting opened with a song by Lilly
Runals, of New York, ontitled "The
Ninety and Nine." H. D. Patten, of
Lancaster, State Chairman of the Pro
hibition party, talked an hour and
thirty minutes on the claims the Prohi
bition party had upon American people,
espcclully upon tho professed christian
people of the land. Miss Runal recited
"The Kitchen Clock." A collection was
asked for. "Tho Cows are in tho Corn,"
was sung by Miss Runals. Mr. I 'at ton
explained tho Baker Law and the moot
ing closed with a recitation by Miss
Runals entitled "Rock of Agos." Miss
Runuls is a good singer, hut evi
dently likes to have the people show
their appreciation of her tulent by
encore. Sho was prepared for such an
outburst, but silence predominated and
tho peoplo missed what was in store for
them and tho singer's feelings were as
thoroughly dumponed as were the
streets of Roynoldsville.
A Timber Deal.
E. C. Stuart, the Sugar Hill lumber
man, has mado another timber deal, this
time out in Warsaw township, near
Rlchardsvllle. He has secured 126
acres of land on which are 3,000,000 foet
of pine and hemlock timber. The land
was sold at sheriff's sale a short time ago,
and Mr. Stuart bought it from the pur
chaser for the remarkably low sum of

Erb's New Sensational Shows.
Glaring bills were posted in this
vicinity about the 7th Inst, announcing
that Erb's Now Sensational shows would
give ono of their superb exhibitions In
Reynoldsvlllo on Saturday, May 14.
Saturday morning four wagons drawn
by fiery steeds that looked as If they
had boon fed on promises and groomed
with corn-cobs, passed down Main street
and across the bridge to vacant lot near
tho Mooiu House. It was discovered
that the lot was not In a fit condition
for such an excellent show to exhibit
upon, and therefore, another place was
looked tor aad found on the flat below
Jackson street. The wagons were haul
ed to the phsee selected, which had been
rented from a lady, for five dollars, who
had no claim upon the land nor was she
authorized to rent It, but did so as an
act of accnnmodatlon to Thomas Me
Crelght, the owner. Mr. McCrelght
was Informed by his son that the show
was occupying his ground. He appear
ed on the scene and in a gentlemanly
way, as Is Mr. McCrelght's way of doing
business, he Inquired of them what right
they had there and who gave them per
mission to occupy the ground. Mr.
Mcd-eight asked ten dollars for the
privilege ol remaining. One of the
showmen, in a snappish, snarling man
ner, gave Mr. McCrelght an Invitation
to take a trip to hades. The property
owner immediately started for a 'Squires
office to hare the trespassers arrested.
Seeing they had a man to deal with
who was not to be trifled with, ttiey
followed him and became very polite
and talked pleasantly. The price of the
ground was raised to Jl.l.OO. After con
siderable pleading on the part of tho
public entertainers a compromise was
secured and they paid $10.00. On ac
count of having trouble In getting a
place to show, there was no perform
ance on the ground In tho afternoon
excepting the exhibition of the illit
erate, uncouth and profane gang trav
eling with tho prodigious representa
tion of what it was not. Some of the
stars are DuBols boys. The rain pre
vented the African from taking a trip
in his baloon. The band played and
tho show wont on in the evening, how
ever, if tho clouds did empty their
watery contents upon tho canvas, and,
not strange to say, they had a large
crowd.but It is hard to find any one who
Ninety Miles on Foot.
Several weeks ago a young Miss of
fourteen summers, who resided with her
parents in Venango county, became
weary of the monotonous routine of
every day life under tho parental roof
and restraint, and decided to take a
trip Into Jefferson county and visit
relatives near Roynoldsville.' She pack
ed hor little "grip" and, with seventy-
five cents In her purse, sallied forth to
travel a distance of ninety miles on
foot. She left home without bidding
the other members of the family an
affectionate farewell, In fact without
even announcing her proposed journey
to hor parents. The father of Nellie
Mlcough after missing his daughter
started in pursuit of the girl but passed
her in some way and arrived in Reyn
oldsville without catching her. He
left a written description of the girl
with the authorities hore with Instruc
tions to arrest hor. The maiden left
homo on Tuesday and on Thursday of
the following week was intercepted on
Jackson street by Policeman Mincer
and tuken before 'Squire McGaw. The
girl at first gave a ficticious name. She
said she walked because she would
rather travel that way than rldo on the
cam. How sho lived on her pleasure
trip, was not revealed to the authori
ties. Tho fathor was telegraphed of
her arrival. He answered to give her
in charge of the relatives to whom she
was on her way to visit. Now she is
enjoying a visit on a furm near this
