Ki.gcrioN NOTXS. — The popularity of
John Power* was well tested on last Tues
day. He made a splendid run for Chief
Burgos* of the borough, and tho Democrat*
of Bullefonto may well feel good over hi*
triumphant election, lie will make a good
officer and do credit to the position.
Hurrah, for tho Solid South I—the
South ward of the borough of Bellelonto,
we mean. The Democrats of thi* ward
came up most nobly to the work belore
them on la-t Tuesday, and for the llret
time in a number ol year* carried their
entire ticket at a municipal election. It
only show* what the Democrat* of that
ward can do at an election when they are
thoroughly united. All honor to the South
ward.
—The Democrat* came cut of the con*
test of last Tuesday in a good ileal better
condition than they did at the borough j
election one year ago, and may well con- !
gratulate themselves on the result.
—George Skinner, colored, managed to
pull through for the office of School Di- j
rector in the West ward by a majority of
four vole*, and for the first timo in the !
history of BellefonUi a colored man will sit
in the School board. Mr. Schofleld ha*
been a useful and faithful member of the
board and deserved a re-election. Tho
colored brethren, however, had to be rec- '
ognized. It was, no doubt, a bitter dose
to many of the white brethren, but they I
managed to swallow it.
PI.XASANT GAP JOTHNT.S —On Febru
ary 11, the Hon. Cam Burnside and Mr
Matthew Kiddle met In Hasg*' back par
lor Shin Bone's office) and then and there
named and nominated a lull corps of town
thip officer*, t<> serve the dear people of
Spring township for the ensuing year. On
Saturday the latter gentleman took a list
of said officers to Bellefonte, where certain
• talwart* of !<•* note were convened, and
had their work of the previous day ratified
without a dissenting voice.
That celebrated farmer. Mr Henry
Zeigler, says he i* again "|>eiicred to an
alarming extent. He thinks It would be
a good idea to buy a tra< t of land some
where an I bring over a colony of China
men to devour the troublesome creature- .
If he fail* in thi he will resort to j>oison. j
Mr. Haag I*busily engaged in prepar- j
ing hi* tobacco crop of last year for mark
et. He has "Abe'* ' sanctum in a some
what confused condition, but promises to
put it in order a. soon a* he i* through
with the tobacco.
Bob say* be don't care how much they
soil the clean floor in hi* store o long as
they buy tobacco from him ; but he con
sider* it altogether "too thin'' for them to
buy tobacco at the other lore and then
come up and give him tho benefit of the
saliva Boy*, take warning.

The exhibition ol the Millheim liven
ing German School on Saturday evening
last was a grand succes*. Not even the
inclemency of the weather could prevent
nine.tenths ot all lower Penns Valley Irom
being present. So well wa* the effort re
ceived that upon special request the exer
cise* wilt be repeated at Centre Hall on
Saturday, the 6th proximo. The pro.
gramme i* replete with more than enough 1
to tickle the intellectual taste* of all, and
the manager, Mr. Adolph Miller, assures
us that any Bellefonlers, who may see fit
to take in the exhibition, will he pleased. |
It* novelty is sufficient to attract many. !

—The flood in Spring creek last week
wa* of a very provoking description. On
Thursday aflcrao- n it rose quite rapidly,
and about 3 o'clock it invaded the com
posing room of the DIMW XAT office, leav
ing a thick coat of slimy mud to mark its
track when it retired. After falling about
two feet it remained stationary all day
Friday. A brisk shower of rain on Satur
day morning started it up again, and by
Saturday evening it had approached so
near that a #ligh' impression on the floor of
our composing room would again force it
up through the crack*. Spring creek,
when in it* normal condition, is a pretty
stream and has often attracted our admira
tion, but it* "room is far better than it*
company."
—A Norfolk man ha* gotten up an at
tachment to gas meters which *hnw* tbe
amount duo for gas consumed, expressed in
dollars and cent*. Now if tome Inventive
genius could make an attachment to gro
cery store* for a similar purpose and would
attach one to Hechler A Co'* store, it would
be found that that firm sells an immense
amount of superior grocerina at a very
small price.
—Mr. JamesGroupoll,of Barney, Clear
field county, who recently fell and broke
his neck and afterwards had it mended in
tbe manner recorded in last week's DRWO.
CHAT, i* still improving, and is now able
to walk about hi* room. He say* he is de
termined to get well if it take* all summer.
The Osceola Reveille ha* investigates! the
matter, and maintains that the accident
wa* an actual break of the neck, and con
sequently the moet remarkable event of
tbe kind on record.
A H11.1.-OK-FAUR.—In addition to tho
other attraction* offered by Gregg Post
next week for tho entertainment and de
lectation of tho public, they will open a
restaurant which will be convenient of

ITEM* SROM SI-RINO MILL.* VMI VI- '
' IRITV.—The leading attractions in this
part of the county at present are the pre
trai ted meetings.
t —Rev. J. Benson Akers, the jxipular
*nd talented M. K. divine who is laboring
. in the Penns Valley circuit, has just closed j
a protracted meeting at Spring Mills, and i
will soon commence a series of revival
service* at Centre Hall.
Rev. I'flischer, tb" Lutheran minister
at Centre Hall, ha* been holding a series of
revival meeting- in the George's Valley
c hurch, at it a mile w.uth of Spring Mills !
The interest manifested in the work was so i
great, and the attendance to large, that on j
several occasions ju>rsons were unable to
gain admittance to the church.
—The Stover Brothers have l*vn doing
good work in theupjier Kv angelical church
in Brush Valley. Seven or eight inquirers
after the "way I" be saved'' have present
ed themselves at the altar of prayer. The
meeting has been ir. progress for several
weeks, but the interest in the work does
not flag.
Rev. Boeder, of the Reformed church,
held a week of service preparatory to
. communion, during last week, in the
j church of that denomination at Farmers
Mills.
—The recent rain* made thing* rather
watery for the Spring Millers. Robert
Dunc an's new store building wa* surround
' <-d by the aqueous fluid Tho building
j -land* on post* sunk into the ground on
the bank* of the creek. Tho floating ice
I tore out some of the post* and very nearly
allowed the *tore to sink into the raging
torrent. Robert felt like ringing, "Pull
for the Shore."
—The school board of Gregg township
have selected a Mr. Mtisser to teach the
two months of the unexpired term in the
Seven Mountain* school. Tho vacancy
was caused by the resignation of J. ft.
Crawford, who has left the most honorable
of professions to become a "counter hop
per." He is now serving the customer*
who go in *rowd# to Robert Duncan's store.
James is an agreeable young man, and
will, no doubt, give satisfaction to his new
employer.
—One of tho Hpeiglemyer# will open a
store, next spring, in the building former
ly occupied by Mr. Duncan. Let him
come—the more, the merrier. ,%
[We would be happy to hear from our
correspondent every week.—K.]
—The members of the N. G, of Pa. are
circulating a petition directed to the Senate
and House of Representatives, praying
those bodies to past the law now pending
which provides that they shall receive pay
for each day of actual service, Instead of
for only one day, a# Is now the case.

HT. VAI.KHTINK'S DAY.—The Hairit to
whose memory the 14tb day of nvery Feb
ruary U dedicated mu*t have boan a very
sentimental old gentleman, and at the tamo
time he doubtless had many trait* of char- !
a , 't , ' r "itnilar to a Dickens, a Thackeray or
any of tho many other person* who spend
so much tirno in cbaricaturing the peculi
ar itlo of their neighbor* Instead of hunting
out their own. Well, Kt. VnP* day ban
come and gone, and while it wa# here the
young folk* of Beliofonle (and tome of the j
old folk-, bet,)derive! much pleasure from
it. The deiire to tend and receive those '
lender or *evero missive* was more intense
than ever before. In the manufacture of i
valentine* a great amount of ingenuity and
late it ditplayed. Thote of the comic tort
are tuprcrocdy ugly and ridiculou* while
the sentimental specimen* are equally elab- !
orate and beautiful. Thoto who received
the former kind (and the number who did
not ua very tmalh, mutt not contider
that the sentiment* cxpr<#ed in the ugly
picture or in the mongrel poetry are the j
true feeling* which the tender entertain* |
for the receiver, but thote who received
|>ecimen of the iwoetly tenlimenUl kind, !
we believe . an, in a majority of instance*. :
congratulate themselves that the rote* and
angi U and word* of loving rhyme thereon
arc a correct exprettion of the entimeriU
of the tender toward the recipient, and
many a love-lorn twain limit thin a wel
come op|,ortunity to unburden hit heart of
feeling* which oiherwite might remain
hidden forever. It it true that the tender j
of a valentine especially of the comic kind
it utually tiipjMiti d to remain in c.g , but
but when thote mittive* contain d<*lara
tion* of genuine love and affection there it

And the thin hand* in her lap
Are not quite to fair and fine
At they were in Add I.ang Syne,
Sweetest wife,
My valentine,
It it forty year* ago
Since i ttole wuh timid foot.
Through the lingering afterglow
P*t the oak * entwisled root,
Past the cedar and the pine,
Withing, hoping the were mine,
Pride of life,
My valentine.
Peering through the latticed pare,
Clear 1 taw my true-love t face :
Turned and left and turned again,
Lingered there, while time and place
Hallowi-d grew, for like a thrine
Seemed that thelt*r<*d hearth of thine,
lear, my wife,
My valentine.
Then I tlipfad beneath the door
Something tatin bound and white ;
It would lie upon the floor
In the moonbeam'* tender light.
That beseeching note of mine.
Suing for that heart of thine,
Sweet, my life,
My valentine
Wooing wavt, they bdl me, now
Are more tentihly arranged ;
Truth to tell, I tee not how
Love and honor hare not changed,
Still mutt man find half divine
That fair woman who thai) thine
On bit life.
Hi* valentine.
And betide our hou*ehold fire,
Dearest, ctown of all my reat,
More than ever my detire.
Sharer of my jovt and tear*,
Gratefully I • ail thee mine,
Proudly own that I am thine,
Sweetett wife,
My valentine.
