A SAD CASE. Jesie Mortiny.rtar Jnxt'intl; kiltel. Hnntiniriton Xpwk, Sfpt. ft. Oue of tho sit. Most uecidetits that we bavo been cillud on to chronicle for many a day, oeeurod at the resi donco of Adam Moruinstar, iu Ju niata township, yeHterday afternoon about 5 o'clock, resulting in the id most instant death of hi sou Josso A.Moruiiifc'sUr, under moot peculiar circumstances. The day had l'in looked forward to with many il'asurMo anticipa tions, it being tho date tet for the marriage of Josso Moruingitar and Miss Mary E., daughter of Junius Bowser, of tho same township. The friends and relatives of the young couple began to gather curly iu tho day, and tho wedding was duly cele brated shortly after 2 o'clock, Ilov. A. R. Lambert, of this place, offici ating. After the wedding dinner was over tho young folks were en joying themselves in various ways, when Bobort Moruingstar proposed to his brothor-in law, George B. Sponeybargor, of this place, that they get thoir guns aud go up an ad jacent hollow to look for game. The guns were procurod and loaded, and as they wore panning tho houso the bride of an hour made a remark to Mr. Sponeybargor to "baud me that gun, 'till I show you how to shoot a turkey." Mrs. Morningstar was sit ting on her husband's knee at an open window, her one arm being around his neck at the time. Mr. Sponeybargor essayed to reach her the gun, and when the muzzle had almost approached her hand, through some . manner the weapon wa dif oharejed, the load, (aNo4 hell,' holding ah average of 130 shot, No. 12 guage) striking young Morn ingstar almost squarely in the centre of the forehead, blowing away a large portion of the skull and scat tering his brains all over the room. The wife, guests and all wore hor rified at the occurrence, and a mes senger was hurriedly dispatched to this place. Coroner Greenberg aud Dr. G. G. liar man were Hoon en route and on arriving at Mr. Morn ingstars' found tho dead man just ns he had fallen when struck by tho shot. The circumstancos of thocane being purely accidental, no inquest was deemed necessary, aud the body was turned over to tho proper per sons for burial. The accident has cast a gloom ov er the community, and nothing but words of sympathy for tho distress ed participants was heard. Deceased was born Sept. 20, 187C. The funeral sorvtces will bo hold at the homo of Mr. Morningstar at 9 a. m. Friday, and interment will be held at Uawn's cemetery. A Victim of a Practical Joke." On Saturday afternoon II. D. Stahlnecker, the blacksmith at the West end of the borough, and Wur ren Bowersox, a son of Curtin Bow ersox, as a joke poured a strong acid down the back of John Wagnor, the twelve year old son of Lank Wagner. The acid used is sim ilar to sulphuric acid and had been utilized by the blacksmith to burn corns out of horses' hoofs. Iu a few minutes after the acid had been applied to tho boy tho solution ate the seat out of tho boy's trousors and began gnawing at his flesh. Any person can imagine the amount of pain the boy endured whon it is known that a single drop of undilut ed acid applied to human flesh causes pain that endures for an hour. For a time it was feared the boy would lose his life, but hopes are now entertained for the boy's recovery. It is dangerous to fool with hydrocholorio, nitrio or sul phurio acid and as yet no one knows what may result from this unwar ranted and unjustified attempt, to play a practical joke. In case of sudden colds, and for coughs of long standing, take Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. DK.UKO. P. MU.t.KH. Tho Post presents in this issuo n cut and biographical sketch of Dr. George P. Millor, late of Middle burgh. Dr. Miller was born January uinth, 167, at tho old Miller homestead in Peun township, where his parents still rosido and which plaoo was first the property of Frederiok Miller.the original ancestor who acquired titlo to it October 2.1th. 17ss. Ho was tho third child and second son of Chas. Miller and Lydia, his wifo, youngest daughter of Philip Kautz, deceased and was fifth in linoal descent from Frederick Miller. Ho was named for his paternal aud maternal grand fathers, his great grandfather on his father's sido of tho house having also boon named George. He was educated in tho common schools of his native township, at the Missionary Institute, Selins grove, taught school for threo years and was graduated April 1891 from the Mftdico-Chirarginal College, of Philadelphia.' ' He located in Mid dleburgh about the first of May of that year and mot with siugular sue coss from the start of his profession al practice. In September ISM while driving with somo friends to tho Lewisburg Fair ho was seized with a sevoro cold, which settled upon his lungs and eventuated in con sumption or tuberculosis. It was apparent to his family aud friends that ho was quite perceptibly failing in leal th but dospito tho earnest en treaties of his friends ho refused to quit his practico and seek medical relief, until it was too lute to arrest the progroos of tho ailment. In Sopteuibor 1S')1, upon tho ad vice of Dr. Shoomakor 'of Philadel phia bo wont to Ashoville, North Carolina, hoping to gain benefit from a residence in a high climato. He remained for eight mouths and his physical appearauco upon his return seemed to indicate that ho hud suc ceeded iu, at least, checking further progress of the trouble, if, indued ho had not materially gained iu many respects as to tho condition of his health. He was fully awuro ut all times, a'tor his consultation with Dr. Shoemaker, who was oue of his Professors at College, of the immi nent peril to his life and regretted, not so much for himself as for suf fering humanity tho world ovor.tuat the profession to which ho belonged could do nothing but theorizo, spooulate upon and prayerfully re commend, what ut best was only an uncertain precaution, when tho ter rors of tuberculosis bad ouco made thomselvos manifest iu tho patient. After his return from tho South he spent two mouths at his father's homo and then wont to Kune, Penn sylvania, on tho top of tho Allegheny Mountains in M'Kean county. Tho air there although vory puro and en tirely froe from humidity failed to afford him any marked relief and steadily sinking he expired ou Wed nesday, Septembor 18th last at two o'clock P. M. Dr. Evan O'Neil Kane, a nephew of Dr. Kane of Arctic fame gave bis patient, Dr. Millor, vigilant and unremitting attention in bis Sanatarium, but nono roalized hot ter than himself that be was past all human skill, and having made all re paration and preparation common with those who stand in the presence of death, he passed away tranquil ly without a murmur of regret at bis early demise. Log Catchers Beaten. I'rum Huubury Item. A caso of oonsiderablo interest to lumbermen and log catchers living along tho river, was tried iu the Sny der county oourt in Middleburg this week. It was a test caso aud for tho timo being Bit! Jed several others iu which tho same principals aro involv ed. It was a replevin suit brought by Ed. XL Hummel against (J. P. Fisher, N. a Fisher, S. A. Hterner, J. H. Baley, F. IL Smith and II. W. ILiupt of Solinsgrove. Tho writ of rcploviu was issuod to recover tho possession of a largo lot of log that were caught in tho flood of '14 whon the Williamsport boom broke and millions of fee, of logs aud lutubor were swept down tho Susquehanna river. The logs iu disputo wore se cured on the west bank of tho river at Sulinsgrove. Somo time after tho freshet, agents of the Lumbermen's Ex change, of Williamsport, woro sent out to hunt np all tho logs that wero caught along the river, with inst ruc tions to pay the catchers and salvage due them according to the exchanges' understanding of the law, which is fifty conts per 1000 feet. Here is whore the disputo aroso. Tho log cutchors refused to settle, at that rate, demanding fifty conts per log. Not being able to settle, tho logs were sold by the Lumbermen's Ex change to Eu. M. nummol and to got possession of thorn ho resorted to the replevin proceedings. The trial of the case did not reach the real point so as to decide what the legal prioo for catching logs is, as it was cut hort by reason of some material irroj -ularity in the filing of the list of lor i before a justice of th Paw add C-b juii-tisia; tcl Baaio as is provided by Act of As sembly. On account of thoso de fects the defendants woro not nblu to get that port of their ovidouco bo foro the jury and proved fatal to tho cause of tho catchers, consequently, tho court directed a verdict in favor of tho plaintiff aud against tho de fendants. Tho plaintiff was represented by attorneys A. W. Potter, of Selins grove, Ex-Judge Bucher, of Lowis burg, and Attornoy General McCor mick, of Williamsport. Tho defen dants' attorneys were Charles Hower and Goorgo W. Long, Esq., of Se linsgrove. The defendants' attorneys say they will take the caso to tho Super ior court.
