The hurricane which prevailed in this
land last Saturday played havoc with

that he was not averse to matrimony.
Each girl wrote hor choice on a piece of

This kind of weather is just what ma
ple sugar makers are awaiting and they
are making preparations for getting out

The sap Is started up the trees by tho for

As long as such weather prevails sugar
can be made. When it becomes so warm
that tho maples begin to put forth their
buds the season must end, as the sap
tastes "buddy" and makes poor sugar
ami syrup, says an exchange.
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."

The Sew Passenger Boat Tlonrsta.
Our readers will always be interested
in the handsome new lake passenger
steamer which bears the pretty name of
this town, and when traveling up the
great lakes will doubtless try to mako it
a point to patronize the Tionesta. A De
troit dispatch to the Euffalo Express, un
der date of the 25th ult., says :
The task of finishing up tho new com
bination freight and passenger steamer
Tionesta, building by tho Detroit Ship
building Company, for the Erie A West
ern Truusportrtion Company (Anchor
line) is being rushed at the foot of Orleans
street.
The lavt hoisting aboard the boat was

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.

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

jaw. It was surprising how he handled
that "stump" aud easily licked all the
dogs in the town. Had be been "all to

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

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.

one ol Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver
Tablets, which quieted her stomach and
she slept the wno.e night through. Two
Ixixes of these Tablets effected a perma
