Their.letters this week are especially pood. The items are short, pointed, some >f them sparkling with wit .and all veiy readable. We feel proud of our correspond!ts. If we "can not write anything fit for a man of culture to read," our correspondents—any one of them can. That's a mackerel fact. THE Il.irrisburg PATRIOT in it 3 new suit of type is one of the neatest dai lies published in the state. But its ex ternal appearance is not even its chief merit. It brings the earliest news in reliable form, while its editorial de partment is replete with sound Demo cratic doctrine. Tne party has reason to feel proud of its central org in. DECORATION' DAY, May 30th, inst., occuriug 11 Sunday, Saturday the 29th has by common consent been substitut ed instead and will be very generally celebrated throughout the country. —A queer qui deal sort of a fellow at our elbow would like to know all about the new trustees of the Millheim Ceme tery—their names and post office ad dresses -what sort of looking chaps they are—their early history—educa tion—politics—standing in society— whether there is business in them—and finally—''"What are they going to do about it ?" We considered the fellow very im- 1 pertinent and came within a hair's breadth of slapping him,but bethunkour s.-lf just in time that suchan operation i 3 clearly unconstitutional. Just to get rid of the tiouba some customer we re ferred Mm to Messrs. Henry M. Swartz, E. C. Campbell and A. O. Deininger, three of our citizens who are fully able to give the desired information. —West Susquehanna Cla3sis of the Reformed Church will meet in annual sessiou in the Reformed Church at Re bel sburg, Wednesday, May 19th, at 7b p.

No one can complain of the cold during the last week, so the habitual grumblers haye taken to complain of the heat. Mr. Wilso Binds buried a little girl, last Saturday. It had been a great sufferer, for a long time, "and it. was a happy release, though none the less sad, on that account, to the bereaved parents. Miss Sarah Kline had the misfortune to lose her voice. She can still tr/n.s pcr more pleasant things than many people who can talk aloud succeed in saying. The mountains south oast of town are burning and the scene, at night is a grand view. Likely those living very near, however, fail to appreciate its beauty. Those who have l>een waiting to hear Rev. J. Benson Akers, were on last Sabbath rewarded for their pati ence, by hearing a very exc dlent sei - moil. l>r. J. Jordan Deshler was to Par adise, a few weeks ago. That is the place to go, to see the angels. Mr. J. C. Meyer has returned from College, to spend the Summer vacation. Our Sabbath schools both elected new officers. Tiie Lutheran is to lit' su perintended by Mr. L. D. Kurtz, and the Reformed by Prof. W. L. Meyer. Miss Kate Shafer either took a sud den notioft to slip into the matrimonial noose, or she allowed the knowledge of her intention to break very suddenly upon tiie people. She became Mrs. Hoy of Madisonburg and went at once to'the new home. Many good wishes attend her. Now Henry you are ex pected to move. "What are you going to do about it v '' Rev. Sigel and family are expected this week. Mr. Frank Phillips was down at tending to the store, during the ab sence of his brother Henry in the city. Most persons are nearly through corn planting. Grain looks promising but grass is greatly in need of rain and not growing much. Fruit trees all blossomed abundantly, and the prospect is that there will be plenty of fruit. Miss Victoria Stambaugh lias re ceived a nice lot of goods. Mrs. Tomlinson is quite out of style. Every one else got through with colds, this winter; but she lias just been entertaining one now. The funeral of Mr. Henry G. Smith, in the Reforms 1 graveyard, on Tues day, was very largely, attended. Hope he may have found his eternal rest. X, Y. SPRING- MILLS ITEMS. The Farmer's Mills Brats Band gave soino of our ci t izens a serenade the other evening. . Messrs. Bunk, Miller Krtunrine and Grenoble camo in for the compliments of the band. Come again, gentlemen. W* 11. Bartholomew is making: some progress towards building this summer yet. Who will follow suit. J The Star Literary Socuty gave a public entertainment on Friday eve ning to a crowded house. The exorcises were very highly spoken of by the au- lence. Mr. L. K. Itunkle, 0110 of our live teachers, at present attends the Normal school at Lock Ilaven. The finest collection of French Ge- miliums can bo seen at Bartholomews, near the tannery. The steam saw mill near McCool's, recently burnt down, will l>e re-built next week 011 a larger scale than the former one. J. Catherman is the man ager. W. B. Bitner, good fellow and huckster says he handles 2000 dozen eggs weekly. On Monday, as David Burreil was dressing stone with a very large ham- • mer the hammer flew off tne handle knocking down a fellow workman. Happily the result was not serious. Georges Valley Sunday School seems to lead off this spring as far as num bers are concerned. They have av erage attendance of 97. Very good in deed for a country school. Hope the example will be largely imitated. YONEY. NEWS FROM BRUSH. Rev. Landis is 011 the sick list. Our gentlemanly landlord J. L. Roush is doing a thriving business just now. Mother earth is booming noic-she undoubtedly responds to the bible in junction "Be perfect". No new buildings wili be erected in Itebersburg this season, biit a number of old ones are undergoing repairs. Look out for new goods and cheap prices. Several of our Merchants are in Philadelphia this week. Dr. Kirk, of Beliefonte, was here a few days ago, and seemed to enjoy himself hugely among many friends, lie will come again and —well, we must not tell the tale. The steamer in our tannery is cre ating no little sensation —scores of people flock there daily to see the wonderful thing. Mrs. Thos. Wolf and Miss Maggie Walker have left for Illinois, to visit their friends. They intend to return in a few mcnths. Our mountains have been burning furiously the last few days. The Scene presented during the night was indeed more snblim'c than desirable. Quis? —Mr. Teller, the gentlemanly pro prietor of tho Brokerhoff House, Belle fonte, Pa., presents Ins customers each with a beautiful maroon colored satin finished lead pencil with the "compli ments" of the House stamped thereon in gilt letters. That's what we call a novel and it must be a successful way of advertising tho popular hotel. It is certainly a thoughtful and season able present, for a poor country editor. BELLEFONTE ITcMS. Mr. Richard Willis of New York has taken charge and will hereafter act as leader of the Mountain City Band. Mr. Willis comes well recommended, is .1 tine cornet ist, and possesses the en thusiasm requisite for success in his undertaking. D curat ion Pav will be appropriately celebrated in this place. Ample pre parations are being made for a grand strewing. The Gregg Post f. A. It. will be out in full uniform. An'oraiion will be delivered by Joe Parker, KHJ., of Lewistowu. Court week brought quite a number of gentlemen from our sister counties to our county seat. Among them, Judges Linn of Williamsport and Bar rett of Clearfield, I). L. Krehbs, Esq., Clearfield, T. C. Hippie, Esq , Lock Ilaven, J. N. Cassanova, Philipsbnrg. A slight lilazs occurred on Water street on Sunday afternoon about 5 o'clock. A story and a half frame dwel ling occupied by Geo. Whippo and his family took fire and before the alarm oou'.d he given and assistance lent the roof was all ailame. But once the Lo gan Company did get there they did solid work and saved tie building from total destruction. The loss may amount to between two and three hundred dollars. The family were out of town when the the took place and on their return were grieved to see their home in ruins. The S. S. Convention comprising the townships of Union, Bogfts, Huston and Worth, and the boroughs of Miles burg ami Unionville was held at tne latter place on Wednesday, May sth. i Mr. Austin Curtin, President of the ; Centre Co. S. S. A. was in Attendance ind much of the success of the conven tion is owing to his efforts. Quite a number of clergy and S. i>. friends \vc e present and took part in exercises. MARRIED. On the 27th nit, at the residence of the brhle, n Fteebnrp, Snyder county, by the Itev, ,1, F. Wampole, Mr. Henry Knimriue of Spring Mills, and Miss Kate Erlenmcyer, of Frccburg.
