The sale was well attend ed sin) at times the bidding was quite spirited. The Democrats of this county held their primaries last Saturday. There was but one contest, the Associate Judge ship, and the vote was very light. The result was as follows: Congress, J, IS. Watson, of Marienville j Assembly, M. K.Graybill, Marienville; Associate Judge, J. II. IIowiiihii, Harmony township; Treasurer, A. Showers, Howo Twp. Judge Harry Wilson, ofClarion, gave onotieirge Irwin, a salty dose when brought before the court rocontly for fur nishing liquor to persons of Intemperate habits. Irwin was sentenced to pay a line of f."00, the cost of tho prosecution and to tindorgo an imprisonment in the county Jail oftiO days. Every community whore liquor is sold lias its quota of per sons who are will'ng to buy whiskey for tlioso who are denied thwse rights bocaose of intemperate habits, or under the re quired ege, and a few lessons of theaboye nature would sii dice to rid the place of such people and protect the hotol keepers. Adam Sibble one of German Hill's industrious formers, is minus upward of forty pretty little chicks, which had been brought out ky the Incubator process by the watchful care of Mrs. Sibble. One afternoon recently while the family was all absent from the house, 42 of the little peepers turned up missing, and not a feather was left to tell the story, although the time that elapsed was only two and a half hours. Mr. Sibble Is charitable enough to bolieve that some sort of an animal took tho chicks, but would have much satisfaction in knowing just what sort it was, and whother a two or four legged animal. -Last week'sClarion Republican says: A big timber deal was consummated aboul June 1st by II. V. Curll, president of the Curll it Evans Lumber Company, o( Pittsburg and E. E. Ainsler, of Venan go county. The timber purchased by Mr. Ainsler is a small pait of the hold ings of tho Crull A Evans Lumber Co. in West Virginia. Mr. Amsler paid about fOO.OOO.OO for the tract, and will put in a modern band saw mill. Ho is a brother of C. W. Ainsler, of the Citizens' Trust Company of this place. The Crull it Evans Co. will manufacture about 20, 000,000 feet of oak and poplar this year at their lino plant at Holcomb, W. Va. The delegates fro n this place to the convention of the County S. 8. Associa tion at Marienville, last week, Misses Kate Aruer, Ilertha Vought, Sarrah Mor row, Pearl Mealy, Bertha McKeo, Johu Clark and Augustus Childs, report a very successlul meeting and a royal entertain ment by the people ol Marienville. The officers elected for the ensuing year are: President, Rev. M. B. Reily, Marlenvile; vice president, Mrs. C. C. Yingling, Mar ienville ; recording secretary, Miss Jus tins Siggins, West Hickory; correspond ing secretary, Miss Bertha McKee, Tio nesta; treasurer, V. E. Slaghenhaupt, Claringlou, The next convention will be held at Clarington. -In a recent case before the Franklin county court Judge Stewart made a com prehensive statement as to the duly of township commissioners in the matter of keeping the public roads in order, which applies to portions of Forest county with considerable force. "It is the duty of Commissioners," declared the Judge, "to keep the roads iu good condition without fear of consequences, political or other wise They are not to bo deterred from that duty because the performance of it might necessitate an increase of taxes. The odlco of road commissioner has suf ficient power to put his township under obligations to him lor the good service he may perform by building roads that shall be what the law Intends them to be." This is wholesome admonition and con forms entirely to the purpo' e of the law. The action of Judge C, A. Mayer, presiding over the Elk county courts, in setting free Francisco Topalo, and virtu ally dtclaring him innocent ol crime, may cause some discussion as to the pro priety of declaring the man Innocent, but It has saved the county the cost of a mur der trial, and probably simply antici pated the verdict of a jury. Topalo is the man who wreaked swift vengenco on Sainico Kellegramo, at Cardiff recently, by shooting him dead for the deliberate murder of his wife. Court happened to bo in session when he was brought to the county jail for trial, and Topalo was brought before Judge Mayer on the 25th on a writ of habeas corpus, ami the Judge ordered him discharged. It is said that Judge Mayer declared be would not have a man tried for such an act In bis court virtually declaring that Topalo did just right in slaying the man who bad delib erately murdered his wife without a par ticle of excuse for his awful act. Ridg way Advocate. One of the fow landmarks recalling tho earlier oil excitement when Pettol euin Center was a flourishing city of some 15,000 or 20,000 inhabitants is being removed, the old school house, which was erected when the place was at its bost, says the Derrick. Tho builditig Is of two stories, 00 by 40 feet in diameter, and contained lour school rooms, which for a year or two were crowded daily during the school term. Last year ono of the rooms was more than enough to ac comodate the lew children who attended from that vicinity and as a matter of economy in fuel aud keeping up the big barracks-like school bouse, it was deter mined to tear It down. When the old school house was new the town supported a first class bank installed in a brick luiiiliii:r. Innumerable saloons mid sev eral good hotels. Near by was the fa mous Columbia oil farm, with its own brasH hand and various other social mid fraternal organizations, and tho Oil creek valley from tho Center to 'litusviilo was an almost continuous network of small setilemeiits around tho oil developouient. tin: foolish man Learns by experience.

STITZIXiER NOT SUSTAINED. Judge Weiss Overrules Exceptions To Decree Takeu By His At torney. Last week's Viudicator published an article taken from the Harrisburg Pa triot the beading of which gave an alto gether erroneous impression of the sub ject matter of the article. The facts in the case, as a reading of the article will dis ci oso to any one with common sense, are just the opposite to what the heading would imply, and clearly show that Mr. Stitzinger was not sustained. While the defendant, Mr Stitzinger, through bis at torney, did fib objections to the decree of the Dauphin county court, the objections were overruled and the court's decree stands, and the money which properly belongs to the several school districts of the county will be forth coming sooner or later. Following Is the article referred to: "Judge Weiss on Thursday morning overruled the exception to the decree of the court which was filed May i, 1904, and which directed Elmer E. Stitzinger, Superintendent of Schools of Forest county, to refund to the various school districts of the county $1,000 which had been paid to him in excees of his salary and enjoined Dr. Nathan C. Schaeffer, Superintendent of Public Instruction from paying to Superintendent Stitzinger any salary until the money was re luudcd ; alio that Dr. Schaeffer pay to tho school districts ol Forest county $j00 of thoir appropriation which he had with held because of the non-payment of the salary together with the $1,000 paid to Professor Stitzinger. The case was an action brought by Wm. Richards, J. C. Scowdeu, Edward Kiser, W. G. Morrow, Isiah Cassatt, J. C. Welsh, G. F. Watson, C. F. Ledabur, school directors of Forest county against Dr. Schaeffer and Profes sor Stitzinger to restrain the former from paying any salary to Professor Stitzinger until he refunds f 1,000 which he received in excess ol his salary during his term from 1309 to 1000 and to compel Dr. Schaeffer to pay to them $1,500 which he held from their share of the school fund by reason of the excessive payment. Exceptions to the decree ordering tho de fendants to pay the money to the direct ors were filed by Prof. Stitzinger who al leged that the directors in convention on May 2, 180!), had fixed his salary at $1,500 per annum and that the court erred in tindiugthat the defendaut must relund the money which he alleges was paid in accordance with the action of the coven tion." Harrisburg Patriot. Mayburff. David Sutton was on our streets selling a very good mop and wringer one that does the business all rigl.t. V. F.

Sued lly His Doctor. "A doctor here has sued me for $12.50, which I claimed was excessive for a case ol cholera morbus," says R. White, of Cnaehella, Cal. "At the trial he praised his medical skill and medicine. 1 asked liiin if it was not Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea remedy he used as I had good reason to believe it was, and he would not say under oath that it was not."

An event which marked an epoch in the social annals of tho picturesque little town of Nebraska, this county, was con summated at the borne of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Klinestiver, Sr., last Thursday, Juno 0th, I'Mti, when their daughter. Miss Em ma Emstena Amelia, was united In mar riage with San ford II. Secor, or Shellield, Pa. The hour for the ceremony was set for high noon, and by that time all the guests, numbering upward of a hundred, were comfortably dispersed throughout the spacious parlors of this pleasant home. At 11:55 Prof. Judd, of Sheffield, touched the notes of a soil and pleasing air on the piano, apprising the frieuds that the moment for the ceremony was approaching, and while the clock was striking the hour of twelve, and the sweet strains of the wedding march softly floated out, the bridal party entered through the arched parlor doors and was met by the officiating clergy nan, Rev. If. A. Ellis, of Shellield. First came the groom, supported by his "best man," Mr. Fred Klinestiver, brother of the bride, followed by tho bridesmaids, Miss Marie Ballentine and Miss Blanche Mae Pease. Next came the bride, carry ing a bouquet of bride's roses, and leaning ou the arm of her brother, Mr. Harry Klinestiver, who"gave her away." The bridal station was under a canopy of smilax centered with pink carnations, the corner being banked by potted ferns and tropical plants. As tho couple as sumed their places they formed a union, as it were, between two great hearts that were festooned in smilax on the windows on either side, thus forming a picture of lovliness that fascinated and rivited all eyes upon them. The bride wore a gown of white Bilk chiffon over white silk. The bridesmaids were gowned in white chif fon trimmed with lace. The beautiful ring ceremony of the Methodist Episcopal church was employed in joining the hap py hearts in wedlock, and as the minister advanced to speak the words the whis perings were hushed, and amid the still ness of the moment the impressive ser vice was beautifully consummated. Pret ty complimouts and hearty congratula tions were showered upon the couple, who now stood iu a new and happier re lation to one another, and one tin regen erate chap astounded the groom by kiss ing the bride, while, to even up, one of the ladies plauted a good big snack upon tho lips of the amazed groom. The wedding breakfast, served under the direction of Miss Bessie Cook and Miss Ida Ledebur, by the bride's Sunday school class of young ladies in while, was iu all points in harmony with the other splendid features of toe occasion, the bride's table being a revelation in dainti ness aud beauty. At three o'clock the bride and groom took leave of their friends amidst a shower, cr more properly speaking, a downpour of rice, old shoes, brooms aud godspeeds, and were driven to the sta tion at Tionesta, where they boarded the afternoon train for a ten days' pleasure trip, which will include Philadelphia, New York, a steamer voyage up the ro mantic Hudson, and a few days at Mon tecello, N. Y., where the groom has rela tives living. Upon their return tbey will reside at Shellield, where a nicely furnished home awaits their arrival, aud where both have a host ol friends who will extend them a royal welcome. Mr. Secor is a young man of quiet de meanor, whose steady and correct habits have won the esteem and confidence of all who know him. He has for a number of years held the responsible position of agent for the Philadelphia it Erie rail road at Sheffield station. Mrs, Secor is ono of Forest county's choicest girls. Graduating with honors from the Clarion State Normal School, she took up the work of teaching, and has been looked upon as one ol the leaders in her chosen profession. A girl of rare good sense and pleasing ways, she has greatly endeared herself to her large circle of friends, who think the lucky groom is to be doubly congratulated on winning so rare a prize as an helpmeet. It would be unjtst to our readors wero we to close without some reference to the magnificent array of presents to the bride. A prettier display could scarcely be pic tured. Solid silverware, cut glass, china, linen, and many pretty works of art, charmed the admiration of all who gazed upon them. As a mark of tho esteem in which tho bride is held in the communi ty in which she was reared, work at the large lumbering plant at Nobraska was suspended during the afternoon, and Superintendent Watson of the S. t T. Railroad, brought a special car down from Kellettville to convey the guests from that vicinity to and from the wed ding. May good fortune, hoaltb and happi ness attend this worthy young couple all their days upon earth, is the fervent wish ol their many frieuds, and In which wish the Rkpublican joins most heartily.
