prevailed through out the whole affair.
It was noticed that speaking goes much
easier since the hall has been raised,
while musical performances sound 50
per cent, better than heretofore, to say
nothing of the greater comfoit which

well begun, and have the renovated
room papered, painted, properly heated

public gatherings.

—Wo are sorry to state that Mr.
Klias Luse and sou, F. I>. Lose, whose
planing mill in this place was recently
destroyed by Ure, contemplate leaving
here to go into business at Fairview,
Cumberland county. We should have
liked very much to see those men re
main, rebuild their mill and continue to
do business in town,but we understand
they were offered social inducements
by the citizens ot Fairview, which the
Messrs. I.use have concluded to accept.
Thus Millheim loses a thriving enter
prise and two good citizens, and Fair
view may IKJ congratulated ui>on their
gain.
DON'T FORGET.— Since subscription
moneys are so very slow in coming lit
we wish to remind those of our delin
quent subscribers who find the time
of expiration as well as the a
raount due, stamped on their papers,
that we desire a prompt settlement of
their arrearages. As long as their ac
counts stand open in our books they
don't do us a bit of good. It takes cash
to run a newspa|>er and we hope our
tardy subscribers will pay up more
punctually in the future. We hate this
dunning in the paper, hut the seeming
indifference of those who owe us on
subscription .forces us to say something
on the matter. Fay up.

K. 1). USE & CLASS, Com.
NEW MUSIC.— We have before us a
copy of "My Lady" Waltzes from the
pen of D. B. McCloskey.who is also tne
publisher. We have heard it rendered
on piano and organ—suitable for either
—and we give it rank with the popular
compositions of the d.v, as for the har
mony, or the accompaniment, it cer
tainly bears upon teachings of the old
musters whose rapid and pleasing chan
ges have become so famous, which lie
must have read to a great extent to ac
complish that which he has in this
piece. Mr. McCloskey is as yet un
known beyond a local radius as a com.
poser and publisher, but with putting
such music upon the market as he
makes his introduction to the public,he
will certainly be entitled to a bountiful
share of the public pat roe age. Send 25
cents to D. B. McCloskey,Lock Haven,
Fa., and be assured of getting otto of
the best pieces of music issued by any
publisher to-day.
NEGLECTING DISEASE.— One reason
why casas terminate fatally that at first
were not believed to be serious is be
cause patients neglect disease in its first
and faint attack. They wait until the
enemy is well into the citadel and then
they find it very dillicult to dislodge
him. It is the height of folly to treat
illness its a matter of small import*,
ance, for we know not what may be de
veloped. A man who lias a family to
.suppoit; a woman who has children
and a house to care for—in fact, no one
who thinks life is worth living yields to
sickness uutil they feel that it is going
to get the best of them, and then is the
time for a prompt, thorough and effect
ive medicine. With Simmons Liver Reg
ulator you can always relieve and never
do harm. Little may be needed,but still
when you have a simple and prompt as
sistance many dangerous forms of dis
ease may be arrested and removed at the
outset, for this is the time or chance,
Simmons Liver Regulator should he
kept in every home ready for every e
mergency. No home should bo without
it to arrest disorders promptly, which,
if not taken in season, often devel
op into serious disease. It stimulates
the torpid liver, strengthens the digest
ive organs regulates the bo-.vels, and
is unequalled as an anti-bilious remedy.
Give it a fair trial and it will not only
relieve but permanently cure.
