EVENING EXPRESS kinsloe brothers---publishers CURRENT COMMENT. Sllect good school directors. Vote carefully tor councilman. TitERK were nothing but blauks in that North Dakota lottery scheme.

Society is dining and dancing at a fur-ions rate to get even with the lenton season. A woman aged 92 was married In New York last week.   She will never be grandmother. This is fine weather, bat the base ball season has cot yet opeeed. The blizzard oC two years ago may still pay ua another visit. SAWTELLE'S BODY FOUND The Headless Trunk Discovered in a Poorly Made Grave A FIENDISH TBAGEDY CLEARED DP The Odd Fellows have a good and useful organization. At present it has 34,000 members enrolled in its insurance department. t It is a debatable question who is in the worse fix-Moleska with a sprained ankle, or Mary Anderson about to get married. A scheme for utilizing the water power of Niagara Falls is in progress under a charter granted in 1886, by a company that embraces a large amount of oapital. It is thought to be practicable by the men who are in the undertaking to convey this power as far aa Buffalo (twenty miles) for lighting that city with eleetrioity, and new ways of using and conveying the Inex-nanstible force of Niagara river, it iB tbonght, will be discovered in the future. Who will say this is not an age of aheap literature, when a soap manufacturer offers with every bar of soap sold a novel by some of the most prominent authors of the wo rid. There is no longer an excuse for illiteracy. A man pays five or ten cents for a bar of soap, aud while lying in his bath tub testing its quality he may in form his mind by reading the first class novel that went with his purchase. The New Vork Usrald calls the prog, noatioations of blizzards either of two olaases: "Hardened liars, wbo had put on their summer flannels at the time and had no more tbonght of a blizzard than they had of an earthquake, and unconscious liars, who said a day or two before that it looked like a storm, and have since lulled their conscience to sleep and made them, selves believe that they did actually fore-tell the great storm. It is a shame that a lot of heartleea theatre managers are going to sue Mary An-deraon for breach of contract. If the young woman wants to get married, why should they stand in her way? If she wanted to marry some foreign princeling It would be different; but she's going to wed a young American, and should be en-oonraged instead of being harassed by a lawsuit. When she became engaged to the young man she simply followed the oustom of breaking oS all other engagements, and the managers who are kicking about it are real mean. So there, now. Eleven million acres of first-class land has by the President's proclamation been thrown open to settlement. This is an area equal in size to the states of New Jersey and Maryland. That would ao-oommodate 220,000 families with a fifty acre farm for each one. Here is a glorious opportunity for landless people-people of the Henry George persuasion, who insist upon the distribution of the land among ail the people. They can get all they can use upon very easy conditions, yet we warrant that not a dozen of these landless peoble will avail themselves of this opportunity to secure homes. Their actions and their professions ought to harmonise more nearly. A Doomed Man's Relatives, Two sisters and a brother of Seely Hopkins the man who will be hung at Belle-fonte next week, will arrive at Bellefonte on Monday. They will remain - in that place until after the execution when they return to their homes at Rochester N. Y. taking with them the body of their unfortunate brother. NORMAL MOTES. The Seniora are busily engaged in writing their Thesis'. The students are anxiously waiting for the new building to be finished. The phonograph gives much amusement for the stdents, and especially the Professors. W. Allison Sands returned yesterday from a week's visit at Jersey Shore. He had the "grip."

Isaac Sawtelle Arraigned for tbe Murder of His Brother, and Committed to Jail- The Victim or the Cruel Crime Had Been Decapitated With an Axe and the Remains Partially Baried In a Lonely Wood. East Rochester, N. H., Feb. 14.-The body of Hiram Sawtelle was found this afternoon in the woods near Lebanon. It bad been deoapitated, and tbe head has not yet been discovered. When found the body was projecting from a poorly made grave, and bad a bullet in tbe heart. It-was feet uppermost, not three yards from where Officer Shields found tbe paper that was wrapped around the head. The body was naked with the exception of tbe feet, which had on a pair of socks. Beside it waa a lot of clotted Mood, where the arms and head had been cut off. Officer Shields now has in his possession the empty shell from which the bullet came that killed Hiram. The bullet iteeif was also found, and a gold collar button, beat and twisted. Isaac Sawtelle was arraigned this afternoon charged with the murder of his brother Hiram. His counsel waived the reading of the complaint, and pleaded not guilty. The case was continued to March 21, and Sawtelle was taken to Dover jail. No good description of the man who called to see Sawtelle at Portland, where be was registered as 3. Bridge Dover, can be given, although it partially agrees with one Dr. Charles L. Blood, of Boston, a fellow convict of Sawtelle'a and with whom be has been more or less intimate since bis release. Blood is missing from Boston at tbe present time. Sawtelle pasaed a restless night and has not as yet been told of the discovery of his brother's body. THE RUX.ES NO If IN FORCE. Passed by or the llonee l'arty Vote. Washington, Feb. 14-The Senate today took np the calendar and passed sixty bills, among them a number of pension bills. While these bills were being passed without question, and with tbe usual rapidity of procedure, Mr. Cookrill called attention to tbe fact that the bill granting a pension to David Peterson, and whioh had beso reported adversely, appeared on the calendar as being favorably reported, and bad been passed. The action of tbe Senate in passing the bill was reconsidered, and the bill was indefinitely postponed. The bill declaring unlawful trusts and combinations in restraints of trade and production, was reached but could not be considered under the rale. Sir.

A number of amendments were offered by Democrats, but all were 'ejeoted with the exception of one offered by Mr. Outhwaite to the clause of Rule 23, which provides that all motions or propositions orginating either in tbe House or Senate, involving a tax charge upon the people, shall be first considered in Committee of tbe Whole. The amendment was to strike out the words "originating in the House or Senate," aud Mr. Outhwaite argued that the insertion of these words would be implication and against the constitution, acknowledging tbe right of tbe Senate to originate revenue bills. This was accepted aud the rules were then adopted by a atrictly party vote, of yeas 161, nays 145. SUPERINTENDENT WALLER. Governor Beaver Appoints a Successor to th* Late Dr. Hit-bee.

It affords me great pleasure to announoe to tbe patrons of tbe Opera House an engagement with Fleming's "Around tbe Word In Eighty Days" Company, next Wednesday evening, 19th fnst. Tbe play ib founded ou the uovel by Jules Yerue, aud is tilled with spectacular efleat from beginning to end. The recent improvements iu the Opera House will enable the company to use all their new aud gorgeous acenery. There are upwards of forty poo-ple in tbe cast and ballet, and a first rate, clean entertainment is assured, similar to that given by the Kiralfy's in all the leading cities several seasons sgo. Do not ooufound this attraction frith a female minstrel show or low burlesque troupe, but as one of the legitimate attractions of tbe day. OI course there will be a large contingent of girls arrayed iu flesh colored tights and abbreviated sk:rts, who drill aa Amazons aud figure in lha ballet, but these are necessary accessories to all spectacular productions. Again assuring amuBement-goers a bigb grade, unobjectionable performance, aud hoping to see a full turnout, I remain your humble servant, J. N. Farssw bth, Manager Opera House. The Names Are Wanted.

The Price society was called to order by the President, Mr, Kepner. The Secretary, Miss Nellie Hanna, was in ber place. Mr. J. W. Gephart was appointed critic. Miss Kunes and Mr. George read selections, Mr. Brauoher recited a selection. Tbe question debated waa "Resolved, that Lincoln deserved as much credit for preserv. ing the Union as Washington for freeing his country." Messrs. Anderson and Gephart ably upheld the affirmative and Messrs. Zimmerman and Wrye the negative. The judges, Misses Kayser, Musser and Hanghton, decided in favor of tbe affirmative. Mr. G. W. Brown read the Print Qazttte, It was rather long bat good. After this the members, whose names were called, responded with choice selections. One young man ventured the following: "In the world's broad field or battle. In the bivouac of lire. Be cot like dumb driven cattle. Be a hero and get a wire." The exorcises were interspersed with music by tbe glee club. The closing num. ber was a quartet-"Good Night"-rendered by Misses Musser and Taylor and Messrs. Rowles and Brauoher, in a very pleasing mannor. While these exercises were in progress equally interesting ones were going on in the Shakespeare hall. President Spangler oalled the society to order and Miss Tomlinson, the Secretary, read the minutes of the last meeting. Miss Clara Kelloy, tbe critic �Itouldered Webster's unabridgod and followed each performance carefully. Tbe Glee Club sang in tbe usual excellent manner. Prof. Chambers favored the society with an amusing song in the "Dutch dialect," with guitar accompaniment. This was well received. Misses Ruddy and Snyder read essays and Misses Dillon and Stevenson gave interesting recitations. Messrs, Fore, Wright, Clymer and Homer discussed the question: "Reaolted, "That tbe pen is mightier than tbe sword." Miss Tomlinson read the Axon Gazette whioh wits one of the best papers the Society has thus far heard. After adjournment of the public meeting tbe Society held a business meeting. Both societies had a very good attendance. Several friends from the city were preset and followed the exercises with close attention. The societies are hard at work and are anxious to get into their new halls. Almost any pleasant afternoon from four o'clock to six you may see students at the new building gazing up at the third floor of tbe main building. Why is this'.' The answer is easy. The new society halls are there. May they loon ring with the eloquence, and resonnd with tbe sweet songs now poured forth to the walls of the Hon-tour House. � PUNGENT POT POURI.

A large audience, slightly top heavy when referring to the positions occupied, assembled at tbe Opera House last nigh t. Tbe great society drama by Bartley Campbell, entitled "The Galley Slave," waa tbe attraction, aud iu the hands of the Kittie Rboades Company was made very inter* eating and enjoyable. If there is a company on the road playing at popular prices as evenly balanced, containing as much genuine wortb, possessing as rich wardrobes, or carrying anywhere near tbe special scenery it has never visited Lock Haven. Tbo costumes worn last night wore pronounced the finest of the week. Miss Rboades made a oharming "Cicily Blaine," and was clad in a number of exquisite drosses that were the admiration of tbe female portion of the audience. Tbe remainder of the company sustained tbeir excellent work of the week and shared the honors with tbe star. To night Is the laat opportunity you will have of seeing the Kittie Rboades Company in Look Haven this season, on whioh occasion will be offered "Tom Sawyer," dramatized from Mark Twain's "Huokle-borry Fin.." There promises to be a jam to-nfgbt. Hadn't you better secure seats in advance? A Complete Mill. Tbe largo saw mill recently erected for Messrs. Cryder & Son near Washington furnace, is said to be ono of tbe most complete mills in tbe couutry. The millwright who superintended the job was Charles Bayers, of Saoksonville, Centre county. There never yet was known a gun Thai surely wasn't lotided, But when 'twas aimed at any one It immediately exploded. Tbe only pity is that when The gun is elevated Its "fool attachment" is not then By kick annihilated. It is predicted by a furnisher that shirts opening iu the baok will ere long be considered back numbers. Patent leather corsets are worn in Paris. They are probably intended for ladies wbo would shine in society. Tbe London Fire Brigade is to be in-creased by three stations and 100 men, gnd the newspapers say that this Is utterly insufficient, and predict a great fire someday that will sweep away a large part of the oity.

First tbey desire to make tbe needed money to. finish and furnish the Industrial Home for girls and women, and second tbe ignoranoe of most of our grown up women, iu tbat all important art, is truly and seriously against a happy home.

Washington, Feb. 14.-The House Committee on tbe World's Fair held session to day and adopted its report on the various World's Fair bills which have been referred to it. This report will be submitted to the House to-day. It com menses with an enumeration of the various bills that have been referred to the committee, and the resolution of the 20th of January concerning the method of the site for the Fair. It then proceeds to say that the committee has these bills in consideration, and has found It impraoti oable, in its judgement, to report one bill to cover all the localities, and therefore it begs leave to submit two substitutes for tbe said bills. Tbe title of these bills is not given. As tbe question of the site has been left to the House, a resolution is offered by the committee aa a substitute for that previously offered by a member of the House on January 20. Tbe substitute provide* that oa tbe day after the eomple tion of the debate on the bills submitted by the committee, aud immediately after the reading of tbe journal tbe olerk of tbe House shall call the roll of the members, who shall name tbe site they prefer.

Kittie Rboades who has been playing to large andiencea and delighting the patrons of the Opera House during the week has been before tbe footlights for eight years and is twenty-eight years of s�c, although she looks considerable younger. Is she married? Yes. Her husband, W-11. Wart), who by the way iB a very pleaBaut, affable gentleman, is her manager and travels and directs the company at all times. The congenial couple are comfortably quartered at the Fallon House and landlord Schuyler has done much to make tbeir stay in our midst pleasant. We understand thoy are much pleased with Look Haven and the sociability of her people and hope at some future day to return and renew acquaintances and friendships so agreeably begun. Miss RhoadesiB originally from Cleveland, Ohio, where she was a member of an amateur theatrical company before she entered tbe profession. Her talent was of such a remarkable character that she was advised to go on the stage, and as stated, she .has been before the public for eight years. Mr. Ward was heard to remark that he gathered together a company in Cleveland and started out on the rood eight years ago. When they struck tbe first town he bad just twenty-five cents in bis pocket. The show with Miss Rhoades at its head was a success from the start, however, and it has been on the road every season since and has made money all the time. Few stage attractions have such a record.

Tb9 Bellefonte Jfeaa says that next morning she secured a razor with the intention of killing herself with it but that, too, was taken from her. She then entirely disrobed herself and going to the cellar lay down on tbe cold ground and refused to get up. The authorities were then notified and the girl was taken in charge. A bearing was given her and she was then sent to jail. It is very evident that the girl is not only bad but somewhat 'out of her bead' also.
