SIR:— In the last issue of the PRESS I notice an article signed Josiah How ard. In this article Mr Howard refers to some outrageous cuttin's up on Clear Creek, and appears to think our churches and schools are in some way responsible for this sad state of things. Now it seems hardly fair to blame the churches of our town for these carryin's on, for you know we cannot force our religion on any one, and very likely these people have never known their Savior. As he evidently desires some advice in the matter I would respectfully sug gest to brother Howard that he tell his troubles to a policeman. Yours truly, E. O. BARDWELL. Emporium, Pa., May 21, 1808. Shocked by Lightning. During the heavy thunder storm which took place Saturday afternoon, lightning followed the telegraph wire that connects the P. & E. depot at Sterling Run, with the residence of station agent, Thos. Moore, of that place, giving Mrs. Moore, who was standing near the instrument a severe shock. She fell to the floor and remained in an unconscious condition from four o'clock 'till half-past eleven that night. At present writing her condition is not considered serious by her physician, although she is confin ed to her bed. Miss Brink the opera tor at the depot also received a shock in her right arm from the same bolt. Wreck on the E. & R. V. A disasterous wreck occurred on the Emporium and Rich Valley railroad last Friday afternoon in which the log loader and seventeen cars loaded with logs were thrown down an embank ment. Several of the cars were demol ished and the loader will be laid off for about a week to undergo repairs. Fortunately 110 lives were lost nor was any one injured in the smash up. In coming down a heavy grade the engine lost control of the train, with the above results. Rev. nr. and Mrs. Nickel. These sweet singers left us on Mon day morning for Niekleville, Clarion county, this state, Mr. Nickel's native place. Their stay among us was Indeed much enjoyed by all who met them, even aside from their relatives whom they came more especially to visit Before coming Mr. Nickel wrote the pastor of the Presbyterian church that they were coming to visit their friends and would be glad to be of service to his church. Arrangements were at once made for the "May Musical Festi vals" which were so pleasant a feature of their sojourn among Us. It was thought desirable not to limit these privileges to the Presbyterian church and Sabbath school, and so all the church choirs and singers generally were cordially invited to join these choruses, which they did. After a week's drill under these skillful lead ers and trainers in sweet sacred song, the entertainments of Thursday and Saturday evenings were given as an nounced. The program as rendered on each evening was a delightful one, uplifting in its character. Mr. and Mrs. Nickel also helped with all ex cept two of the services of the Presby terian church including the Sabbath school exercises during the three Sabbaths they spent in our town. On two of these Sabbath evenings they held evangelistic song services, to the delight of large congregations. They also led two of the week evening services for the same church. Besides these labors, they gave their efficient help to other churches —last Sabbath morning to our Episcopal friends and in the evening leading a service at the Methodist church. On one or two othei; occasions, after the close of services at the Presbyterian church, they hastened to the Methodist church at the pastor's invitation, and sang some of their beautiful selections, while yet their services continued. It is needless to say that all these abund ant services were deeply impres sive, as well as entertaining and fully appreciated by all who had the privil ege of attending. Mr. and Mrs. Nickel were associated for three years with Mr. Moody in his great work in Chicago. Feeling him self called to the work of a song Evan gelist exclusively, he recently resigned his pastorate in Illinois, and will hence forth devote himself to this noble work, assisted so efficiently by his amiable and excellent wife. And surely Emporium will bid them God speed. Pure Bred. Cornish Indian Game, Golden Wyan dottes and S. C. Brown Leghorns* eg#* SI.OO for fiiteen. I. F. OSTIU M. Emporium, l J a.—-2-3m.

MADRID, May 28.—A dispatch has just been published giving details of the arrival of Admiral Cervera's squad ron at Santiago de Cuba. It says: "At 8 o'clock on the morning of May 19, the Infanta Maria Teresa entered the port of Santiago de Cuba Hying the Hag of Admiral (Vrvera. She was followed almost immediately by the Vizcaya, the Almirante Oquendo, the Cristobal Colon and the torpedo boat destroyer Pluton. Soon afterwards the torpedo boat destroyer Furor, which had been reconnoitering, arrived. • "The inhabitants swarmed to the shore of the bay, displaying the utmost Joy and enthusiasm. All the vessels in the port were dressed in gala array. On Sunday night there was an Imposing demonstration in he nor of the officers and crews. The bands of the city played patriotic airs: there were bril liant illuminations and the people pa rad/ed the streets, singing patriotic songs. "Admiral Cervera and his officers were given a banquet at the Casino, where loyal toasts were honored, the principal speeches being by Admiral Cervera and Mgr. Saenz de Urturi y Crespo, archbishop of Santiago de Cuba, the latter of whom exclaimed, 'lt is not sufficient to be victorious on the sea. The Spanish flag must float on the Capitol.' "The squadron has revictualled. Five vessels were in front of the port yes terday. It is believed that the Ameri can vessel Eagle has been charged to cut the cables." The dispatch is not dated.

LONDON, May 26.—A special dis patch from Madrid, via Biarritz, —. s: "There has been an active exchange of dispatches between the government and the authorities at Havana and San Juan de Porto Rico on the subject of sending coal and provisions to San tiago de Cuba.

"The position of the American squad ron will cause the government .to lake immediate action, though it is unknown as yet what form this action will a;>- Humors that a battle has al ready occurred are officially denied.

May 26.—A dispatch from Havana says the American warships are concentrating before Guantanamo and other ports near Santiago de Cu ba. as well as the latter port, which seems to idicate that the squadrons %ro preparing to attack Admiral Cer vera. The anxiety increases daily; but the public is disposed to contin ue the resistance to the utmost. The President has issued a call for 75,000 more volunteers. Obituary. Mr. Wm. Filling died at his home at Truman, Pa., last Friday evening, of typhoid fever, aged twenty-eight years. The deceased was an upright, indus trious young man and was highly re spected by all who knew him. He leaves a wife and two children besides a large circle of friends to mourn his death. Interme it took place Sunday afternoon at the Truman cemetery. Mrs. Wm. Hunter, a sister-in-law of Mr. Filling, who resided at Straight Creek, Pa., was stricken with typhoid fever while at Truman, a few weeks ago, and succumbed to that dread dis ease at her home at Straight Creek, last Sunday. Her remains were brought to Truman for burial, on Mon day. Mrs. Filling has our deepest sympa thy in her terrible bereavement. First Excursion of the Season.

They are all under the care of Dr. Baker who reports five of the patients to be cut of danger, but the sixth who is suffering from blood poisoning and who was just recovering from the measles when he contracted the fever, is in a very critical condition. "Nothing Like It." That is what a Buffalo gentleman said after taking a look at the mam moth stock of goods in N. Seger's clothing house, comparing it with towns he visits on his route. Without a doubt Mr. Seger carries the largest and most complete assortment of cloth ing, furnishing goods, trunks and satchels, etc., to be found in any country town, much less in cities. Memorial.

THE CLIMAX POWDER MFG. Co. 10-tf. THE LATEST WAR NEWS! We desire to call especial atten tion to the fact that the PKKSS con tains the latest war news, every Thursday; it being within a few hours of going to press and several hours later than any daily papers arriving iu town. We derive our news through the medium of the Associated Press and is absolutely correct. State Politics. The Republican State Convention meets at Harrisburg next Thursday, at 12:00 o'clock. «*• The Clinton Republicans endorsed Judge Mayer for re-election, at their primaries last Saturday. ♦% Chas. W. Stone's strength in the Republican State Convention will as tonish the mathematicians so busy now-a-dayß figuring out the nomina tion of other candidates. #*• The factional contest in Potter county was ended last Thursday by the pri maries electing the entire Quay ticket. Now, let our neighbors give the entire ticket a cordial support and cease factional contests iu the future. It does not pay. Hon. C. W. Stone's chances for the nomination for Governor were given a good boost last week, having gained eighteen delegates last Saturday alone. With such counties as Lancaster, Wash ington, Bedford joining hands with the north-west, C. W. Stone will enter the convention with a strong following of stalwart Republicans, largely per sonal friends of Senator Quay. *** Among those who are of the opinion that W. A. Stone will not be nominated for Governor the impression seems to be growing that C. W. Stone of War ren, is most likely to be named. It is argued that he has a number of dele gates instructed for him and that he is generally regarded as a Republican who would command the support of the bulk of the party. There are a number, however, who seem to think that Judge John Stewart, of Franklin, may be named.—Harrisburg Telegraph. The Republicans of Forest county in county convention assembled, last Tuesday nominated Ex-Representative Dr. S. S. Towler for the legislature; S. M. Henry for' Treasurer; A. W. Cook for Congress; lion. N. P. Wheeler for State delegate, instructed for Chas. W. Stone for Governor. The nomination of Dr. Towler for the legislature is simple justice to an honorable gentle man, who conscientiously and zealously represented Forest county in the ses sion of'9l. Ilis conceded ability as a legislator should give him the unanim ous vote of Forest. Dr. Towler will creditably fill theehair so ably occupied by Hon. J. E. Wenk during the past two terms. In nemorium. MRS. FLORENCE L. STRAWBRIDGE, wife of George Strawbridge, of Sterl ing Run, Pa., died at Johnsonburg, Pa., aged 3-5 years, one month and two days. She went to Johnsonburg, Jan. 6th, 1898, on a visit to the family of Mr. Jas. Strawbridge and took seriously ill Jan. 16th and, although everything was done for her that medical skill and loving hands could do to arrest the disease, she passed peacefully and triumphantly away May 18th. When about 20 years of age she gave her heart to God and her name to the M. E. Church,of which she remained a member until the close of her beauti ful and useful life. She was married to George Straw bridge, Oct. 26th, 1887. To this happy marriage was born two interesting little girls now left to continue their course in life without the love and counsel of a mother. Those who witnessed the patience and christian fortitude which she evinced in the closing hours of her life were wonderfully impressed. But her's was an amiable and sweet christian life, and its close could not be other wise. She was universally loved by those who knew her and doubtless did not have an enemy, Impressive funeral services were held in the M. E. Church at Sterling Run, May 21st, by her pastor, Rev. M. C. Piper, of Sinnemahoning, assisted by Rev. Jelbert, of Johnsonburg, and Rev. S. Ebersole, of Sterling Run, and attended by an unusually large con course of people, showing the high esteem in which she was held by the community. Her remains were laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery at Sterling Run, to await the resurrection of thejust when we hope to meet her again never to know a separation. Wars come high.

A league of society women is form ing in Philadelphia, to boycott Paris milliners and dressmakers, in retalia tion for French sympathy for Spain. W. C. Holahan, formerly a resident of Renovo, died at the Soldiers' Home, Erie, Pa., May 16th, aged 57 yea> . His remains were interred at Lc c Haven.

For pushing a white boy oft idly moving freight train last i day, whereby the boy fell under thf leels and was killed, Joe Mitchel, J Vrd braketnan, wa3 hanged by t. ,at Paducali, Ky Prof. W. F. Dußois, of the Couders port High School, has organized an Anti-Cigarette Club among the stu dents at that place. The club now numbers one hundred and fifty mem bers. It is a wise thing to stick to your underwear until it sticks to you. By doing so you may suffer a little discom fort, but better that than a long siege of sickness, and have a big doctor's bill to pay besides. Thirty-two members of the Klondyke party that left Franklinville early in the spring, have returned home this week, completely disgusted with the north and glad to get home on any terms.—Eldred Eagle. "The well supplied Club" returned last Saturday from Finlev Run, where they enjoyed their annual week's fish ing. The parry consisted of Ed.Blinzler J.W.Clarke,Ed. Straight,B. J Cameron and Thos. Davin. The boys report a pleasant week and plenty of fish. The Buffalo Commercial pertinently remarks that those who howl at the government for not being fully ready for war, can form some idea of what our national predicament would have been had President McKinley allowed himself to be bulldozed into proclaim ing war last February. What might have proved a disastrous conflagration was prevented by a few Third street residents, about 2:30 o'clock Tuesday morning. The big double house at the corner of Third and Spruce street was discovered to be on fire and burning vigorously but a few pails of water soon put it out. It is supposed to have been an incendiary attempt; probably the work of tramps. Mrs. Robley T). Evans, the wife of "Fighting Bob," has a larger personal interest in the navy than most women. Her husband commands the lowa, her brother commands the Indiana, her son is on the Massachusetts, her son-in law is on the New York, and two daughters and her neice have volun teered as nurses and are now taking instructions at a hospital. T R. Williams, late editor of the Driftwood Gazette, was in town on Saturday while enroute for home from a business trip to Mt.
