The hurricane which prevailed in this land last Saturday played havoc with Win. Lawrence's loot bridge again, top pling it over and snapping some of main wins. Mr. Lawrence had only last fall put the structure in good repair, bnt it would require something very substan stantial to brave a blow like that which swept up the valley of the Alleghony during most of that day. The damage done will foot up close to a couple hund red "plunks" before tho bridge is put in shape aguin. It is told of a good looking, well todo bachelor who, boing teased by the young women of the club for not marrying, of fered to make the girl whom tho club should elect bis wile, just to show them that he was not averse to matrimony.

Tho famous Clarion Normal "rake oil"" caso was killed last week by the grand jury ignoring the bill of indict ment against th J defendants, which In cluded quite a number of Clarion's prom inent citizens. Tho cases never had much Blanding iu either tho court or the community for the reason that no one believed they wero brought with proper motives. The prosocutors wero saddled with the costs, which was about as expected under the circum stances. It wouldn't be a bad notion now to investigate the prosecutors, and give tho public somo idea as to "why, If the casos were so soon to be done for, what were tliey begun for." Tionesta fanciers fared finely at the Pittsburg's big poultry show last week, giving Forest county a big lift toward first place in tho chicken breeding world. K. C. Heath, in a contest against 3."3 chickens of the Barred Rock variety car ried off prizes for 2d pullet and 4lh hen. Considering the big bunch Kory had to go up against this was a fine capture. F. A.

The boilers will bo tested within a short time, and the engines turned over, and by the first of April it Is confidently hoped by the builders that the new pro peller will bo turned over to her owners ready to go into commission. Passed Array As He Lived, Peacefully. On last Saturday morniug the golden key of death opened the palace of eterni ty and our old and respecied triend and neighbor, William Krauss, entered at noontide. For the past few weeks it was known that the esrthly tabernacle of an intensely active spirit was wearing out, but it was scarcely thought possible that the dissolution would be a rapid one. However, the body, weary with its more than six and seventy years of greatest activity, suddenly collapsed and the spirit took its flight before many of our citizens were aware that death was neir. William Krauss was the son of a gentle man of high standing, and was born In the city of Dresden, the capital of Saxo ny, Germany, August 10, 1820. Ho was one ot three brothers who received care ful domestic training aud were afterwards students at the University of Leipsig. Two ot the brothers became ministers of the Lutheran church, while the subject of our sketch, in addition to his study of science and the classics, devoted himself to the fine arts, especially music. The city of Dresden, with its celebrated acad emy of art and its mu-ical choir, afforded him excellent opportunities for the culti vation of his tastes, while the charming valley of the Elbe enriched his aesthetio nature, and enabled him to become a stu dent and lover of natural history as long as he lived. Dresden being the home city of the duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, William Krauss, from knowledge that can be gleaned of his eatly life, attended aud was afterwards converted iu the same church in which Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, was a communicant. Becoming proficient in music he was also a composer, and had the honor ot playing before tho crowned heads of Europe. But the glowing accounts of the splendid op portunities America afforded induced Mr. Krauss to seek his fortune in the me tropolis of our countiy in 18."2. In 1872 he became a resident for tho first time of Tionesta, where he bad large classes In vocal and instrumental music. Leaving our town for ether locations, he returued in 1887 and again assumed his vocation. Later bo took up his. residence in Tidioute but returned to our town in July, 1000, which has been his place of residence eversiuco. The only member of his family iu this country, alone in the world at bis advanced age, "By foreign hands his dying eyes were closed. By foreign bands bis humble grave adorned, By strangors honored aud by straners mourned." But the "human heart Is kind," and when it came to be known how he strug gled to the last to live honestly and not become a charge or burden to anyone, many kind acta were extended thiselder ly gentleman which were all appreciated by him. Although deprived of many of the necessities of life he never complain ed, but acted well his part. He was re markably economical and industrious never idle and if he did not havo work that brought bim money, be would study and analyze the flowers of the forest, practice, read or write. He was never known to say an unkind word, or to do an unkind act towards any person, and he was more kind and thoughtful of the feathered creatures of the air than most of our citizens. Even after be was ail ing he purchased, out of his meagre, in come, food for the birds and, wbou the days were coldest and snow deepest, ho waded out to fill the window Bill 'of his littlo cottage with food for tho chicadees. And surely He, who caretli for tho spar rows, took notice and dealt tenderly with His servant, granting his wish that he go to Him without being a charge, and crowning him with the honor and respect of his fellow citizens. On Sabbath afternoon funeral services were held at 3 o'clock, conducted by Rev. B. F. Feitt, and the body was laid te rest in Riverside cemetery. tiruuderrillc.

Reed Cassutt is able to be out in the open air at his quarantine camp and soon as it is safe for him to mingle with people he will be around as usual. Jerry Black was elected school director and is one ot tho first Grundorvillians to be honored with an office in Pleasant Township. Rather an odd sight was a bugo cake of ice, fully 500 feet long, lodged in mid stream one day last week. It required fourteen shots of dynamite to start the big Ice fleet out sufllciegtly to allow the free use of tho ferry boat. It is said this Township went strongly Democratic at the last February election. Perhaps as evidence of this fact a large coon captured alive Saturday carried the marks of having gone through a very hea'ed battlo, being minus one front loot and a side tusk, broken off close to the jaw. It was surprising how he handled that "stump" aud easily licked all the dogs in the town. Had be been "all to gether" and fet he'd have been a sight to mako the Pittcburg Gazette's coon turn green with envy. ;( W EST C 1 1 K A P EST HATES and best accommodations.

Thero was a large and enthusiastic meeting of Capt. George Stow Postol this place on Monday evening. Command) r S. C. Johnston is a worker in "gathering in the clans," to borrow an old Scotch phrase. A general interest in the noble order is awakened it is evident. As time progresses, the old comrades feel an in creased interest, which is natural. Two old members wero reinstated and one, Leonard Agnew, was received back on card from Eben Ford Post of Warren, Pa., and one, a veteran of four years' ser vice, Orlando Bingman of Nebraska, Pa., was elected to membership. So from all this it appears tho Post is prospering. The G. A.

We know that we express the senti ments of our patrons, and all patriotio people when we wish this popular and flourishing Post a full measure of suc cess.

The whole family bave been ill with the disease, but are recovering slowly. Misses Myra Stronp and Dorothy Bur dick drove to Mayburg on last Tuesday. The box social given in the Porkey school house on Saturday evening was a success. The proceeds amouutod to $13,10 ; making a total of $ 28.45. Miss Downey and Mrs. R.

Earl Downoy and Miss Eastwood drove to Mayburg to see the ice gorge. Mr, and Mrs. Blowers, of Minister, spent Tuesday afternoon at Mr. East wood's. A very pleasant hop was siven from 10 o'clock till 11:45 p. ni. in the Porkey hall after the social on Saturday. A great many of our people wont to Mayburg Sunday to see the ice gorge, Edlnboro Normal School Re-opens. Owing to tho fact that exaggerated re ports concern ing our recent smallpox scaro have reached the newspapers of our Nor mal School District, we deem it wise, as well as due to our patrons and students, to make a clear statement of the facts in the case. We have at all times endeavored to bo frank with our students and to keep them informed upon everything touching their welfare and happiness. Prof, Morrison, a member of the faculty, is also a mem ber of the health board, and was vejy at tentive and vigilant iu arriving at a just conclusion in regard to the many wild rumors afloat. Each day announcements were made to the students giving thorn all the Information in our possession. And when convinced that danger existed we promptly closed the school. We wisli to say that a few weoks ago, two lady students rooming at the Peiry house became sick. Dr. F. G. Greetillold was called In to see them, who at the third visit pronounced the disease to be chicken-pox. When it appeared in the South Hall the dectors again pronounced it chlckenpox. Tho management of the school relying on the judgment of the physicians thought there was no cause for alann ; indeed they assured us that there could no evil effects arise from the dis ease, and that it would run its course in a low days. Health Ollicer, Dr. J. W. Wright, of Erie, was finally called by the board of health, and pronounced tlietliseaseamild form of smallpox. The Normal School authorities, in con junction wilh board of health of Kdin boro, acted upon the advice ot Health Of ficer Wright and immediately took every precaution to con line and to stamp out tlio disease, whatever it might be. And to that end the management has purchas ed a Formaldebydo Apparatus, w hich the health officer assured us will effectually eradicate the disease, Iu as much as no living germ can exist in the presence of Formaldebydo gas. There are uo now cases, and the five students who were pronounced by the physicians to be affected by the disease are now convalescent, and will leave for homo this woek. The Trustees havo now a force of men at work fu.nigatlng aud disinfecting all the buildings upon the grounds, aud no building will bo opened for occupancy by students until the same has beeu inspect ed and pronounced sare by en officer of the State Board of Health. The New Dormitory ill be ready for the reception of lady students upon the reopening of school on March 17th. This building will be supplied throughout with new furnishings, thus insuring safety, covenience and comfort to the stu dent 4. The Model School reopened Tuesday, March 3d, and the Normal School will reopen Tuesday, March 17th, and will continue, without a break through the spring session, closing July 1st, 1003. We congratulate ourselves, our patrons aud the public, and are very thankful that there are no serious results arising from our recent scare. We fully expect all old students to re turn and complete the term's work, and thus get credit for same. John F. liiiu.KK, Principal. February 28, UNIX Wnkri'nl hililri'ii.
