GET your valentine in to-day. SOME eight and ten inch ice was housed last week. ALL banks were closed yesterday, but court convened as usual. A FARMERS' institute will be held at Elderton February 27-28. AN increase of pension to $10 has been granted Thomas McElwee, of Plumville.

AN excellent literary meeting was held at the Ferguson school house Friday night. THREE men received death sentences in the Westmoreland county court on Friday last. THE sale of 2-cent postage stamps at the Indiana postoffice amounts to about 80,000 every month. THE professional boodler will have pretty poor picking during the present primary campaign. ONE dealer in railroad ties, in this place, had nearly one thousand delivered at his sheds on Friday.

THB hotel bars will be closed next Tuesday. This is a state affair and not on account of Mrs. Nation. KANSAS is a prohibition State, but Mrs. Carrie Nation with her little hatchet has found plenty of saloons.

THE indications are that the proposition to erect a poor house will be licked too dead to skin, at the election next Tuesday. AT the regular prayermeeting in the Presbyterian church on next Wednesday evening, January 20, five elders will be elected. A FARM paper says February is the month for trimming grape vines, and advises cutting back freely, as the fruit grows on new wood. K. SMITH, of Hillsboro, Stacy H.

Smith, of Pitcairn, spent Sabbath with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Smith, of this place.

THERE is not a district in the county where they have humane, intelligent Overseers of the Poor, where the poor are not better cared for than in the best poor house in the state. THE best thing to put on a slippery pavement is warm sand. Heat the sand by the stove, sprinkle it on the ice and the sand will freeze fast to it, forming a good foothold for pedestrians. MRS. NATION, of Kansas fame, is on her way east.

She has not crossed the Mississippi yet, so the Blairsville joints needn't box up their mirrors for some time. THE farmer with rural delivery to his door and a telephone in his room only needs a trolley line to have the conveniences of the city and be ahead of his town brother, who has to go to the postoffice for his mail. IF some of the patrons of the Rural free delivery route fail to get their mail, they will likely find the reason in the fact that they have not complied with the request of the Department to put up Bafe and convenient boxes. THE Warren county man who wants the money refunded that he expended for a substitute during the civil war is an example of modesty, since he does not ask for a pension on account of his former substitute, who was killed. GEORGE LIKE, of Oovode, was thrown from a load of hay Thursday last, and received injuries which caused temporary paralysis of one side and rendered him speechless.

While his condition is serious, it is not regarded as SAMUEL LUCAS has stored away nearly eight hundred tons of ice taken from the Litzer pondsrj The ice is of the pure spring water variety, free from bugs and warranted not to mold. He will serve a good many Indiana customers ziert summer. THE Congressional Apportionment bill introduced in the State Senate puts Indiana and Westmoreland counties into district "all by their selves. "Well," as the late Captain Bunsby remarked, "if so be it must so be, and when found make a note on it." SLEIGHING parties to near-by towns have been numerous during the past ten days. Marion Center is perhaps 'the most popular point of interest, though Shelocta and Homer City come in for a good share of patronage.

-There are good hotels in each of these places. BLAIRSVILLE councils have resolved to shut off the city water on the P. R. R. people March 1st, unless that corporation ponies up about twice or three times the amount of money it is paying now for the water service.

An amicable settlement of the matter in dispute is likely. ALBERT PALMER, charged by Martin Patterson with felonious assault, was found guilty in the Westmoreland courts Thursday. Both parties hail from Bairdstown, and the affair grew out of the recent shooting scrape in which Palmer fired a couple of loads of shot into Patterson. A CHURCH street man has invented a parlor clock for the benefit of. young men who do not know enough to leave the girl's house at a proper hour.

The clock sounds an alarm at eleven o'clock, turns out the gas and opens the front door, casts him out in the wide, wide world, and then closes the door after him. THE Gazette says the MESSENGER is tmfftJT- when it says the cost of the poor house, if a majority of the people vote for it, may be $100,000. The contract price of our court house was but it cost, the tar payers over $150,000, not including the bond steal of $60,000 or $70,000. AMONG the interesting shipments from the Indiana station the other day was a large bale of skunk skins. The skins are mostly from the country and are sent to dealers in New York, where they are manufactured into sealskin jackets, muffs, etc.

A bale of ski TIB is shipped every week and they continue to remind station loungers and employes of the original odor of the animal. WILLIAM McCoLLOUGH, of Canoe township, the man who insisted on remaining in bed with, all his clothes on while he underwent a siege of typhoM fever, died on Sunday and was buried on Monday. Mr. McCnllough had been supported by the township in which he lived for so-aie time. He is survived fjy a widow and nine children.

Here is an instance where a county home would News. Mast be a Daisy Farm. The auditor's report concerning the vJarubria county poor farm operations for 1900 is at The total expenditures for the management of the farm, iare of the inmates, outdoor relief, is given as $22,612.98. This does not include the directors' salary of $300. The average number of inmates per day is given at 107.

Tramps w.ere given 428 meals which cost the home about $20; and tramps were "lodged." Add the the investment in farm, buildings, improvements, costing altogether about £150,000, to the actual expenditures for maintenance and salaries, we have a jrand total of something over $31,000 paid by the Cambria county taxpayers the year 1900. But in order to fully appreciate the blessings of this beneficent institution we must give the farm products, manufactured articles, "killed," Of course these items are to go into the ex- aense account, as ic is probable that at 'tost a part of the various products were used in maintaining the poor inmates. We will quote from the auditor's report, and those who care can make their own comment: Here goes. "Stock on work horses, 16 milch cows, 1 Jersey bull, 6 yearling calves, 17 shoats, 2 brood sows, 1 Chester white boar, 100 chickens, 35. turkeys.

Seems to have been about four beeves, 12 calves, 12 or 15 hogs and 100 chickens slaughtered. But, my George look at the cabbage! 4,000 heads. And the sauerkraut fifteen barrels. But there were 13 gallons of wine and 13 quarts of peaches. But here are a few more suggestive items.

Under the heads of salaries comes this: Steward, $500; matron, farmer, farm help, house servants (3), $350.00. And this does not include the good director's $300, nor the outside-physician's $763.28, nor the house physician's $250, and the dentist's little $18. Well, it makes us tired to think that a half dozen Indiana ringsters insist on dragging our county unto such a feast. Vote "No!" "United we Stand and Fall." Divided we B. K.

Fisher, who is running the St. Elmo Hotel at DuBois, has placed in the rooms of his house a set of rules governing its management. Among other items found in the "rules" are these: "I raised two sons, in my hotel the greater part of their lives; they never took a drink, never played cards, never used tobacco in any form, or played billiards or pool. Both are fine scholars, graduates, and can read and write and speak four languages: English, German, Latin and Greek; can stand at the head of the column in their respective professions. They are John M.

Fisher, a physician of Philadelphia, having a large practice, and Jacob L. Fisher, a lawyer, of who stands at the head of the column among those of his age in Western Pennsylvania. My only daughter, Kate, is a fine scholar, an honorable woman, living in Brooklyn, New York. Her husband is employed in a broker's office in Wall street, New- York. My wife is dead and buried in Phiadelphia, and I am in business in DuBois.

She was a noble Christian women and when I die I expect to meet her in heaven. "I never charged a Minister of the Gospel anything for lodging or board when he stopped with me, no difference if they stay over night or over Sunday, as they never get too much pay for the work they do for the people. K. Fisher, Owner and proprietor of the St.Elmo Hotel, DuBois, Pa. "United we stand and divided we fall." Proposed Xew License In the House, Wednesday, a bill introduced by Mr.

Beacom, of Westmoreland county, was read. It provides for the amending of the Brooks high license law to provide for the appointment of three license commisioners for every county of the State, who shall be appointed by the courts for one year, and who shall grant all licenses, hear all petitions, remonstrances and so forth. No licences shall be issued until the person receiving the license- shall give a bond of $2,000 to observe the liquor li sense law. The commissioners will receive a salary of $10 a day for each day actually employed, but out of the license fees received by them. An appeal may be taken from the decision of the commissioners to the court of Quarter Sessions within ten days upon any question of law or any question involvieg the good faith of the commissioners.

The "bill goes into effect January 1, 1902. But licenses previously in force shall continue nntil they expire by the lapse of the time for which they were granted. We don't see anything to commend in Representative Beacom's measure. The whole thing comes back to the court, and itjmight as well begin and end there, as it does now. (Somerset Moonshine.

The most important capture of illegal whiskey ever made in Somerset'county vras made Tuesday afternoon on the Fiether farm, three miles from Rock wood. There were nine jugs, corked and sealed and ready for delivery, holding twelve gallons of white fluid. It was taken to Somerset Tuesday evening along with a worm cap and kettle which has a eanacity of thirty gallons. The manufaclaring was done in the cellar. The house was occupied by the regular man the house being employed in a neighboring distillery.

He was not at home when his moonshine apparatus was confiscated, but is now under arrest. The neighborhood has been flooded with moonshine for a long time and the U. S. authorities have had ft long and patient search for its source. te State Director's ventioc, the delegates appointed to the State Director's convention at Harrisburg, which meets to-morrow and Friday, are Messrs.

J. T. Bell and V. M. Cunningham, of Indiana; 33: M.

Ansley, of Rayne township, and dL Sfteele, of East Mahoning township. Those are Messrs. jyandSteele. A Jolly Christening. Frank Ruuzo something over a year ago was married to Josephine, the "handsome, dark-eyed daughter of Mr.

and Mrs. Frank Maly, who cairy on the fruit store on Philadelphia street, a few doors west of the postoffice. Frank is a shoemaker and has his shop in the same building with his father-in-law, and before and since his marriage was an inmate of the Maly family. They are tenants of Judge Harry White, and the judge regards them very highly as prompt-paying and not at all troublesome tenants. About three weeks ago Mrs.

Runzo, petite and handsome and charming as before indicated, presented to her husband a wonderful prize in the shape of the cutest, blackest-eyed, curliest- headed boy baby that ever was. Frank's heart swelled with pride and he beamed with joy. The grandmother also smiled happily and the grandfather was just as happy as could be. The little brothers and sisters of the young mother thought the wonderful newcomer was an angel, and they anticipated seeing its wings spread and the baby taking flight almost any hour, and hence they hung over it wheu it slept, and watched it every moment of their waking hours with the keenest delight and considerable curiosity. In due course it became necessary that the little one should be christened, and this ceremony was performed by Father McNellis last Sunday morning at 11.30.

Many friends of the Malys and Runzos came to witness and assist in celebrating this momentous event. The visitors came on Saturday and they stayed over of the following Tuesday. The visiting dagos came from Vandergrift, Leechburg, Apollo, Pittsburg and other places. Some of them brought with them accordions, guitars, mouth organs and other musical instruments. The real festivities began Saturday evening, and at this writing are not yet altogether completed.

Mr. Runzo prepared himself in an able manner to entertain his guests. Ten kegs of beer, cases of the same, and whisky and wine in unlimited quantities; while every thing good to eat which appeals to the Italian appetite was provided in abundance. The home neighbors and acquaintances of the bride and groom and the grandparents were invited to come and see the child, and incidentally every caller was urged to "take something' in honor of the baby. Stephen, for that is now the baby's name duly and lawfully bestowed, takes everything good naturedly, and as the visitors press around rolls his black eyes in curious delight, smiles until his fat little face is covered with the cunningest dimples, and his black eyes shine with a wonderful brilliancy.

Nearly everybody in the neighborhood has been to see the little Stephen and- congratulate the happy youue father and mother. The godfather of little Stephen was Mr. P. Zodia, of Greensburg, and he made his godson a handsome gift. This is the first Italian baby christening we have had in town, and the occasion seems to merit more than a passing notice.

in Brides Wanted by Wholesale. Press. Van Meter, a little mining town Rostraver township near Jacob's creek, is one of the most original spots in Westmoreland county. The old adage that it's a cold day when something unusual cannot be furnished does not hold good in the case of Van Meter, for just now in mid-winter with the mercury hovering about the zero mark she is reveling in a sensation that makes her about the 'warmest" place on the map. This sensation can best be explained by the following advertisement that appeared in this week's issue of the West Newton Sun: WIFE.

In view of the fact that the Arizona man who recently advertised in the Pittsburg papers for a wife received so many responses, we deem it advisable to do- likewise. The undersigned would like to meet or correspond with young ladies with a view to matrimony. What we desire in them cannot be expressed here on account of the diversified opinions of the subscribers of what constitutes a good wife. We guarantee our sincerity and can furnish a good home. W.


MORROW, A. HANKO, JONES Address any one of the above at Van Meter, Westmoreland county, Pa. Van Meter is a new town. The social conditions have not become sufficiently settled as yet for the supply for men and women to have reached an equilibrium. As a result, there are many good-looking young men wandering about the precincts of the place in single-blessedness.

In an effort to remedy this unsatisfactory state of affairs this advertisement has been inserted, in hones that at least some of the will be satisfied with the returns. JLetter from Ned McCnne. Captain and Mrs. John McCune, of Johnstown, received Monday, a letter dated two months ago, from their son Ned, with the Twenty-second Regulars in the Philippines. He writes very cheerfully and says he is enjoying excellent health, as nearly all members of the regiment.

In the same mail with the letter was a pair of native shoes, each shoe cut entirely out of one piece of wood, except the upper part, which is of leather. They are very fancy, resembling American fancy house slippers. Ned also sent to his brother Bannan, which came in the same a dirk knife, about ten inches long, without handle, which would compare favorably with our knives. It was enclosed in a bamboo sheath, and it, with the slippers, was wrapped in cloth of one of Ned's old U. S.

uniforms. The slippers and knife are certainly relics and indicate that the Filipinos have taste and ingenuity. The young man's many friends will be pleased to hear of his good health and happiness. Ned is a grandson of Mrs. Phoebe Nixon, of North Sixth street, and is well known In Indiana.

Indiana A. A. Wins Twice. Another easy one for Indiana A. A.

came along Monday night, in the shape of Indiana Normal. The score was 40 to 8, and 6 of Normal's 8 were on fouls. The home of the ball was in the Indiana basket and the tune was Home, Sweet Home, during the entire evening. But then, the Normals and anybody else will run against something big when they try Indiana, Normal made an extraordinary number of fouls; they were accidental, but they counted all the same. Practice will materially aid the Normal team.

Indiana defeated Marion Center Friday night. The score amended by Marion was 23 to 18. The Indiana boys left off their team work and everybody played for the goal. A team o'f ybungsfcers wap defeated at Marion Thursday by a score of to The Big Five Basket Ball team Philadelphia will be here the night of the 21st, and a fine game is expected. JOHN F.

Sample room 632- Philadelphia street, Indiana, Pa. Fel3-2" The Inquirer Knows. Philadelphia Inquirer The Indiana county Gazette says "In nearly every county where the poor farm system is in vogue, they have adopted a plan of Outdoor Relief By this system parties are maintained at then? own homes, sometimes by being assisted in part and sometimes being entirely provided for; the amount of relief being proportioned to the need." To which The Inquirer all seriousness don't bank too heavily on that form of relief. It is abused in every county in the State of which we have knowledge, and unless watched with the utmost care will be abused in Indiana.

For one thing there is too much secrecy about it. Under cover "of that secrecy people who are fully able to support themselves manage, through some sort of "pull" or other, to get as much assistance at the public expense as those who are actually in need of relief, and, we repeat, this is not right. So, the Inquirer, which is a rabid' 'up- to-date," "broad-gauge" poor house advocate after the pattern of the Gazette, believes there is a "pull" about a poor house. There is no doubt of the fact. Let the tax-payers of Indiana county avoid an encounter with this "pull" until we get rid of the present pushing debt.

Congressional District Ifews. Congressman Jack has been notified that Archibald McGaughey, Ford City, Armstrong county, gets reissue of pension at $2 a month from July 15, 1865, 2 from January 14, 1891, and $14 from August 1, 1900; that Andrew Sheasley, Mateer, same county, gets increase to from January 24, 1900; that Mrs. Mary Wolf, Oochran's Mills, same county, gets $8 from March 21, 1892; that O. Seybpld, Jeannette, Westmoreland county, gets increase to $10 from June 6, 1900; that Robert Ewing, Ligonier, same county, gets increase to $14 from Augusts, 1890; that Andrew H. Ruffner, Purchase Line, Indiana county, gets increase to $14 from August 15, 1900; that William B.

Stahl. Marion Center, same county, gets increase to $12 from. June 27, 1900; that Caleb Suyder, Gai- bleton, same county, gets increase to $8 from August 29, 1900. The appointment of'J. D.

Neely as postmaster at Derry Station, Westmoreland county, has been confirmed by the senate. Joe A. McOlaran is recommended for postmaster at Saltsburg, Indiana county Agnes A. Ohl at Baxter, Jefferson county; David Smith at Humphries, Westmoreland county; John R. Dunmire at Elderton, Armstrong county.

Frank W. Thorpe is appointed postmaster at Grove Summit, Jefferson county. Dora postoffice, Jefferson county, is discontinued. A second rural mail route out of Indiana has been referred to a special agent. The postmaster at Lindsey, Jefferson county, gets increase of clerk hire from $40 to $100.

Wen Prize of in Gold. The Pennsylvania managers and special and local agents of "the New York Mutual Life Insurance company were banqueted at the Hotel Schenley, Pittsburg, on Tuesday night of last week. There is a good deal of rivalry between the agents of the company in Western Pennsylvania, embracing 22 counties. The city agents agreed to banquet the country people if they could put in more business than the municipal workers, and the city folks lost. In addition to this the Pennsylvania general agents for the Mutual offered a series of prizes, the first being $150 in gold to the agent sending in the greatest number of applications and greatest volume of business.

rich first prize was won by Mr. John A. Miller, of Blairsville, whose returns indicated that he had won out handsomely. When handed the purse he was not so comr pletely overcome as to prevent him from making a neat response to the speech made by the tender of the prize. Mr.

Miller is one of the leading Insurance solicitors in the western part of the state, and now holds the position of special agent for the Mutual, which permits him to work in every one of the 22 counties. He has a dozen agents under him, and the company, among the leading and the most solid of the 'old line" organizations, fully recognizes his worth and usefulness. Baby Badly Burned. Mrs. J.

L. Loucks, wife' of 'Squire J. L. Loucks, of Alverton, Westmoreland county, and her infant son had a narrow escape from being burned to death while sitting before the fire Friday night. A live coal set fire to their clothing and both were considerably burned.

Mrs. Loucks was dressing her Baby for the night and was holding it in her arms. A live coal flew out of the grate, alighting in the clothing of the mother. She hastily brushed it off, but not before it had set fire to herself and child. Unperceived by the mother a portion of 'the coal dropped into the baby's clothing as she fastened it's night robe.

The child was in great pain, but the mother thinking it was owing to the burns from its clothing igniting nursed it to sleep. The following morning she was to discover that the coal had- burned through the child's under garments and blistered its lower limbs and abdomen. Things. The prospects for securing the big plate glass plant are daily growicg slimmer and slimmer, and the outlook now is that its projectors will seek a site elsewhere. The glass company has endeavored to buy some lands in the neighborhood on which there is rock sand and coal, but the enormous prices have scared them off.

In one instance $300 per acre was asked for land on which the sand rock is found, another party asked 150 per acre, and for eight acres of coal, not including the surface, the enormous sum of $10,000 is asked, or just six times what it is actually Blairsville Courier. Perhaps the owners of the land have hopes of selling their holdings for a poor farm. Coal Operations Over in Seventeen hundred acres of coal land in Kiskiminetas township on which options were taken some time ago by Messrs. Guthrie, McAwley, Kirkwood, Williard and Wilsou have been sold to Mr. Watson, of Saltsburg, -who represents a company of eastern capitalists.

The land owners have been notified that the coal will be taken at the optioned price, $20.60 per acre, as sqah as the tir ties can be examined. This tract lies about five miles south of Apollo and is one of the finest blocks of coal land along the Kiskiminetas valley. It is understood that this company will begin operations at once. The natural opening will be on the river front, probably on the Townsehd farm. can Hyps" "no" qn the poor house question next Tuesday, There may be unceasing andTirreparable regret if you vote "yes."

Owing to a railroad wreck at Bourbon, Indiana, which demolished one of our 1000 bushel cars of Spring Wheat, which should have arrived here 10 days ago, we are entirely out of TIDAL WAVE flour; and there has been a TIDAL WAVE famine in Indiana for the past week, and many good housewives are sorely disappointed at the bread they are getting from the flours they have substituted for TIDAL WAVE. Cars of wheat will begin to arrive the last of this week, and we trust by next week we will be in a position to raise the famine, as we will run our mill day and night when the wheat arrives until the demand is filled.
