Flams Galers. Plums are so plentiful in the home market that they attract but little atten tion and no complaints are heard of bad boys robbing trees, although every lad in tow n is surfeited with this delicious fruit. John H. Huston probably pays tnore at tention to the cultivation of plums than any other resident of town and boasts of the largest and choicest varieties Last week he brotight to the Hkeald office a number of Lombardy plums that for size and flavor have never been equaled in this part of the country. A singular freak of the tree, from w hich the plums brought to this office were taken, was twin plums each as large as a good sized walnut, growing on a single stem. Popular Organisation. "The Urban Club" is the name of an nrranimtion eoinnosed of a large number of young ladies and gentlemen of this place who hold annual retes on it. c Beerits' handsome lawn every August full moon. Last Wednesday night the Club exceeded all previous efforts in the way of decorations and illumination and ihe snectacJe presented by hundreds of beautiful Chinese lanterns lighting up the walks and hidden among the shrubbery and trees was one greatly admired by all w ho saw it. I'ufortunately for the mem bers of the Club the night air was too cold to permit dancing ou the lawn and they were compelled to carry out their program in the parlors of Mr. BeeriU' house. Reformed Eeunion, The reunion of the Reformed Church in Somerset county, held August 20, 1SW, was pronounced a success by every one. The day was fair and the temperature at tbe right degree for full enjoyment or tne exceedingly orderly assembly of several thousand people. The Salisbury Cornet Band, whose musical proficiency is well known, added greatly to the occasion by their excelleut rendering of several of their numbers. The program arranged for the day was an excellent one, and tue sneakers treated their subjects both ably and eloquently. lr. A. R. Kremer, of Berlin, had for his theme, "The Author or the Sw iss Reformation." Dr. W. Rupp ofthe Theological seminary at Lencaster, "The Heidleberg Catechism." Fred. W. Biesecker, Esq., "Reunion." A. L. G Uay, Esq., "The Young People to the Front." Dr. A. F Tmxal, "Church Lit erature." II. L. Raer, Esq., "The Wom en in the Congregation." Contract Let for the Summer Hotel. Readers ol the Hkralp and other local papers have been told so often that work on the summer hotel on Tayman Hill would be uuder way at a certain speci fied day and have been so often disap pointed that they have arrived at a point w here they are unwilliug to believe that the proposed building will be erected until they have heard the ring of the car penter's hammer. We learned to-day from several of the directors ofthe Hotel Company that the contract for the hotel building had been recently awarded to F. Mertens A Son, leading contractors of Cumberland, Md., and that the building will be completed throughout and oeued to the public on June 1st next. We also hav it on relia ble authority that at least four cottages w ill le ere-ted on the hotel company's grounds before the end of the present year. Those who will erect cottage are Messrs. Ililworth, Simpson, Wood aud Scott, of Pittsburg. Should be Eemoved. How in the name of the eternal fitness of things the members of town council could so far forget themselves as to per mit the unsightly borough scales, located on the publ ic square, to be replace! by a new weighing machine is beyond the ken of a majority of the people of this town. No excuse can lie offered for their conduct in this direction unless it be that MUincil are alueilu;r Uiduferent as to the sanitary condition ttt the principal section of tbe town, or are entirely de void of artist ic perception. Yew, if any, of the towns iu this section of tbe fctate have a more imposing public square than Somerset. Nearly all ofthe buildings facing it are of modern design and con struction, and w hy their beauty should be marred by a public scale, on w hich cattle, coal, hay and what not, are w eigh ed at all hours of the day passes compre hension. With the facilities at the dis posal of council it is out of the question to keep a public institution such as this in good sanitary condition, and a foul stench must continue to assail all pedes trians w ho have occasion to use the streets in that neighborhood. As if to show their contempt for oft-expreMed sentiment in regard to removing the scales to a less public location council have caused the new one to be elevated to a commanding height, where it at tracts the attention aud censure of all w ho behold it. Let the scales be remov ed to a side street or alley. A Scarry Trick. The most reprehensible conduct ever witnessed ou a 111 field in this county was that of the Meyeradale team on the home grounds, Saturday afternoon, when they gathered up their traps and ran to the railroad station at the close of the 4th inning, without offering a word in exten uation of their childish performance. Meyersdale agreed to play Somerset, having first stipulated that the game should be called promptly at 1 o'clock in ot der that it could be finished liefore the arrival of the 3:12 train, on which they proposed to return home. The game was delayed for a quarter of an hour on ac count of rain, and was agnin delayed for fifteen minutes at the end of the first in ning. Rut the delays occasioned by the rain were not a marker to the delays caused by tbe kicking of tbe Meyersdale players, w ho realized that they were out classed and doomed to certain defeat when Iavis struck out the first three uieu w ho went to bat. There w as only one avenue of escape h?ft and that was to prevent five innings from being played. Every time the umpire opened hi mouth was a signal for Meyersdale to kick. The kicking was not confined to to the Captain ofthe club, but each indi vidual player hurried from his position in the field to register a kick. Finally the anxiously aw aited signal came, the passenger train whistled for Somerset, and the badly whipped team rrom the Metropolis fled from the field. Thomas who pitched for Meyersdale was dead easy and was pounded all over tbe field by such players as Landis, of Berlin, and Kinkead and Main hart, of Johustown, who played with Somerset. The score w as 7 to 3 in favor of Somerset at the close of the 4th inning. Will Frcaob at Cniontown. Rev. T. J.

There will, therefore, 1 no sep iccs in the Somerset Presbyterian church on tba day. Regular services ou Sunday, Sept. 6tb. A Commca Cans of Baldness. A common cause of alopcia, according to lr. Henri Fournier, is that the scalp is washed too often, and is thus lacking in oil. Many races oil tbe hair, and such are seldom bald. Some animals also, as. for example, birds, which possess neither seborrheal nor sebaceous glands, have a gland w hich secrete an oily substance, w hich the animal rubs on tbe skin to protect the feathers from tbe action of water. The product of selceous glands is remarkably rich in fat, and possesses a notably smait amount of water. Tbe fall ing of a certain no ruber of hairs is a physiological phenomenon. The author is ofthe opinion, however, that tbe appU cation of oil to tbe scalp would be benefi cial to most persons, and it is suggested that the rubbing into the scalp of a po made or other fatty eubstaucea be made part of the daily toilet, the pomade to carry with it some antiseptic substance.

An ineffectual attempt was made for several days last week to organize tbe Republican congressional conference of this district at Bedford. By general con sent it was agreed to make another at tempt to organize at Tyrone, to-day, Wednesday. The Johnstown Tribune, of Saturday, aays : The renort Dubllshed In the Plttanurg papers that Mr. Evans is sick, la without foundation in fact. The Cambria Conference would not (ro into Conference Testerdar unless the Thropp Conferreea, of Bedford, who had the certificates of the Bedford county Convention, were admitted. Somerset and Blair asked that the Con ferreea of Somerset, Blair, and Cambria organize the Conference and decide upon the admission of Tbropp'a delegate. Thus the matter stood yesterday, and it was agreed to make another effort to or ranize at 10 o'clock this morning, which. as appear by the above, was equally fruitless. Died on tfco Operating Table. Anna R. Will, a widow of Glade, thia county, died on tbe operating table at the South Side Hospital, in Pittsburg, Wednesday. She was sixty-three year old, and was employed as a domestic at Glade. She has been afflicted with tu mor for year. Accompanied by her eon and Dr. Gard ner, the family physician, she went to Pittsburg to have an operation perform ed, and went to tbe South Side Hospital. Dr. Gardner and Dr. Stafford were to per form the operation. She was placed on the operating table and ether adminis tered.

A month ago be had the misfor tune to scratch one of bis hands with a small piece of steel. Little attention was paid to the injury at the time and was re garded as a trifling matter by the young mau until the arm began to swell, when he consulted a physician. His condition rapidly grew alarming, however, and during the last w eek it was known that he had little or no chance for recovery. Up to within a few hours of his death he was an intense sufferer. The remains were shipped to Berlin for interment. Hsto Ton Children Who Beally Want to Co to School. Then be happy, whether rich or poor.

Highest of all in Leavening- Powers ADSOOJTEILV PURE FOUGHT FIFTT BATTLERS. Horol Eneonntor of "Jako, tho laako- miar," With Half a Hanaro Bop-tUoo-He Killed 83. Makkletos. Pa., Auk. 23. These mountains, beside giving life and sus tenance to a race of hardy Americans, grow snakes. They overrun the hills and hollows in counties numbers, and in clude the venomous copperhead, the deadly rattler, the silent blacksnake and many species of harmless and prettily colored reptiles. Naturally they have enemies, and they quarrel with and kill themselves and are also destroyed by the mountain cattle. But their archenemy 1 man. And the greatest of this class is "Jake, tbe Snake Killer." He has a reputation that has not been equalled in seven years and is proud of it. His other name is Jacob Witraut, and he is a store keeper in this town, on tbe bank of tbe Casselman river and right at the base of the mountain. He ia a veteran soldier of German descent; a tall, wiry man with bronzed hands and face, a tawny mustache, a taciturn nature, much modesty and great strength and unflinch ing courage. He is known all over Up per Turkeyfoot and Black townships aud from Rock wood to Confluence. "Jake's" great battle was with a nest of rattlesnakes, and while he has killed hundreds of others in bis 65 years, hla name and fame rest on this particular encounter, of which be gave me a mono syllabic account the other day, after close q uestioning. While his neighbors know Wiltraut would not lie, he and they have the rattles to prove that tbe fight really did occur and that thesnakes were killed. "Jake" was out gathering blackberries early in tbe morning and had penetrated almost to the summit of the mountain, when be stumbled into, or upon, the den of reptiles. Hereabouts the snakes make up a colony and live upon the co operative plan. There must have been 50, ranging in length from two and a half to four feet, with from one button to 15 rattles on their tails. This is how the age of the snake is told. At three years they get a button, and annually there after, until they die of age or get killed, they add a rattle to the Imtton. A suake is not thought much of until be can make a respectable noise with his rattles against the button. Last year a gray haired rattler was killed near this town and a postmortem examination showed that be had one button and 25 rattles. This marked an age of j years. But, as Kipling says, "that is another story, and the man who was the hero is dead." When "Jake" got fairly Inside the "den," the whole colony of snakes rotte in their might and shook their rattles. This made a dreadful noise and nearly took away the nerve of the mountaineer. Then the snakes began exuding their horribly pungent poison, that filled the air with noxiousness and almost over came tbe hunter. The poison thrown out by one snake is insufficient to affect anyone; but tbe combined effluvia of 50 snakes makes the air reck with a sicken ing foulness. Fighting off the feeling of faintness which, yielded to, meant his end, for the snakes would have bitten him to death Wiltraut dropped his ber ry buckets and seized a good sized club. The snakes came at hi m from all sides. He struck with sure aim and a strong arm. The snakes struck at him, flaunted their rattles and poured forth their poi son. "Jake" kept bis eyes wide open and his club swinging all around him, He backed away or leaped forward, and tbe reptiles followed him. Tbe struggle lasted 35 minutes, and in that time Wiltraut had threshed over 20 yards of rocks and stumps and under brush. Then, wben he had knocked over the last snake in sight, he sat down to re cover his wind. Dead snakes lay all around him. He gatbend into one noi some heap 33 reptiles, and then cut from tbeir tails a bushel of rattles. These he brought to town in bis berry buckets. after he had thrown away his morning's picking. The rattles were distributed among friends, "Jake" keeping the largest sets for himself. Many men went into the mountain and saw the heap of slaughtered snakes. These and the rattles w ere proof enough. In the whole battle "Jake" had not been injured. His o nly rtgret is that about 20 of tbe snakes crawled away among tbe trees and rocks. Sotneof them were badly wounded, and "Jake" feels sure that, with tbe way he swung his club, not a tattler ofthe whole colony wound have lived, if they had not turned tail and fled. "Jake" still haa his rattles. Some of hi neighbors have fashioned theirs into ornaments and brightened them, so they glisten like pearls. According to the veracious statements of a dozen lumbermen hereabouts, there is another den of rattlers on the same mountain, wherein live anywhere from 100 to 1,0(10 of the slimy reptiles. This is proven, they say, by throwing a stone into the den and hearing the loud rattling and smelling poison. This den is said to have existed for ) ears, and some day it w ill be attacked by tbe hunters and cleaned out. But some ofthe hunt ers may be "cleaned out," too, tor these snakes are said to le tbe biggest ever known and to have strength, a great supply of poison and cunuing because of their years. Tbe den, though, is right ip the midst of a goodsized hemlock thicket, and when the lumber is needed tbe makes must go. So that "Jake's" feat may be more thau triplicated one of these days. Joux J. Urkoo, In Pitta- brr Times. aW Swarming Beef. II. C. Moore an and John Reybuck, Rush township, Noi'buinberland coun ty, farmers, had a thrilling experience with several swarms of bees Wednesday that they will not soon foivet. They are under the care of doctors, as their faces, head and hands are terribly swollen as the result of hundreds of sting inflicted by the angry little insects. Knowing that Mr. Moore owned a pair of clippers, Reybuyk visited bU farm Wednesday in order to have his hair cut, but while this work was under uay. Farmer Moore's seven hives of bees be gan to swarm, and tbe men armed then- selves with tin pans, on which they beat furiously in order to attract the attention of the swarming bees. Tbe charm did not work, however, and fearing that the queen bee was about to lead the swarm to a clump of trees some distance from his farm, Mr. Moore re solved to apply heroic measures. Pro curing an old shotgun he fired into the swarm and succeeded in attracting un divided attention. Hundreds of bees fastened themselves upon both farmers' faces and bands and stung their perse cutors with a vengeance. Run a the farmer would they were continually surrounded by the angry bees and it was not until they had al most buried their face and beads in the soft earth of a corn field that they found refuge from the angry insects. The farm era were nearly smothered before the re maining bee followed their queen to a (dump of wood on a neighboring farm.

Deputy SUte Veterinarian J. Stewart Lacock, of Allegheny, last week complet ed a post-mortem examination ofthe cat tle of William Stoner, of Alverton, West moreland county, which were slaughter ed at the sbindery of John Schillp, in Allegheny, because they were afflicted with tuberculosis. The worst fear of the veterinarian were realized, the lnsides of the animals, to use a common expres sion, bad simply decayed away. The original herd of cattle owned by Mr. Stoner numbered 20 head. There were four calves of various sges, three heifers, about fifteen months old, and 13 milch cow. Tbe test showed that nine ofthe latter were affected, three of tbe heifers and one of tbe calves. The ani mabi were all of tbe finest blooded IIoI- atein stock, and to all outward appear ance were in a healthful condition, with the exception of the cough from which they suffered. The 13 animals slaughtered were all ex amined last week and tbe discovery made was sufficient to completely sicken Mr. Stoner, the owner of the cattle, who was present. Tbe lungs were almost completely gone and what remained of them were diseased to such an extent that tbe sight was horrible to behold. Not only the lungs, but all parts of the vital parts of tbe animals were affected. Tbe udders particularly were badly dis eased, and it is from this source that tu berculosis is conveyed to humans. The star cow of the herd was tbe worst affect ed. In tbe udder was an ulcer twice the size of a goose egg. Mr. Stoner stated that this cow had len giving four or five gallons of the finest looking milk every day, and he had serious doubts that it was affected. He was more than satisfied after what he saw. Not only in the older animals, but in tbe younger ones as well, was tbe disease very apparent. The one calf that was killed was in an awful condition, while tbe heifers seemed to be worse than any of the others, the disease having no doubt been born in them. Although Mr. Stoner has not been us ing the milk from tbe cows since tbe in spection was made several weeks ago, yet there is no doubt that the animals were in a very serious condition before the inspection occurred, and it is possible that serious results may follow. The cat tle not condemned at tbe last inspection are still on the farm of Mr. Stoner, se cluded from all other cattle. They will lie inspected again about the middle of Septemtier, when there is little doubt they too will be affected, by reason of tbeir long association with the cattle that were diseased. Mr. Stoner was perfectly satisfied w ith the teat, and w ill make every effort to have all the farmers iu bis locality have inspections made of their stock. He has several brothers who are dairymen in Westmoreland county, and he took home with him a number of applications for tests, confident that, after be told of the condition of his own cattle, tbey would be glad to avail themselves of the oppor tunity to have theirs tested. William Waugh, the New Brighton man who suspected his cattle were affect ed, has made application to the State Veterinarian for tests, and Dr. Lacock expects to be ordered to that place in a few days. Last week he stated that some four other New Brighton dairymen bad asked for inspections, but at this time he is unable to disclose tbeir names. "For three years I suffered from Salt Rheum. It covered my hands to such an extent that I uould not wash them. Two bottles of Burdock Blood Bitter cured me." Libbie Young, Pope Mills, Ht, Lawrence county, N. V.
