The company a pipe Mill at heading utilizes about 5u0 tons of kelp Iron daily and requires the full capacity of the kelp Mill Here the product of which averages one Hundred tons daily along with the product of four other Mills to keep it in operation. The pipe Mill at heading is a Well established Industry whose future is secure and As Long As the Mill Here remains a feeder to it along with its other markets which never As yet have failed steady work and fair wages May be looked Forward to.

Gulick the murderer is in custody Safe behind the bars in Sunbury jail. Weary of being hunted Down like a wild beast on saturday night amid the failing rain he returned to his fathers House to give himself up and expiate his inhuman crime As the Law May dictate. Since the Day of the tragedy one or More of the near relatives have occupied the Gulick Home with the stricken father. About 7 of clock sunday morning a Little grandson named Mettler surgeon entered the milk House near the dwelling on an errand and was surprised to see a Man with his face buried in Bis hands seated by the stove in which a fire bad been kindled drying his clothes. The Man looked up and the boy recognized him As his Uncle John Gulick. A a done to afraid a said the murderer a i will go with you to the the hunted Man followed the boy and was led into the presence of his aged lather whose life he had attempted and whose declining years he had robbed of All that makes life dear. No attempt is made to portray the emotions of father and son. John Gulick extended his hand. His kind old father had still enough of paternal love left to take the proffered hand. Then in language broken by emotion the Sou expressed his deep regret for the terrible and inexcusable deed he had committed. He described his wanderings from the time the fatal shots were fired and said he had no longer any wish to escape. His intention had been not to give himself up until monday. But now that his whereabouts were known he of course would have to go into custody at once. He changed his clothes and was Given a warm breakfast after which he was taken in charge by Milton con Rod Constable of upper Augusta township who accompanied by h. F. Moore and e. R. Campbell neighbors escorted the much wanted Man to Sunbury where they arrived Between 9 and 10 of clock. The news if Gulicki a arrest had scarcely reached Sunbury before the prisoner himself appeared. The excited town which last week sent hundreds of peo pie to the station at the Mere Rumor that the murderer had been captured and was to be brought in of the train was taken unawares sunday and there was Little or no demonstration. Gulick seemed much relieved when Safe in jail. He was inclined to talk even cheerful. Evidently a great Burden had been lifted from him. He had scarcely been incarcerated when a relative called upon him on whose advice he abstained from All allusion to the murder. The Story of his wanderings however were already out. After committing the murder he went across the Fields to the barn of James Eckman where he was in hiding most of the time for three Days and three nights. From an elevated Field on the farm of Foster Oberdorf Friday morning he viewed the funeral Cor Tege with its two hearses bearing the remains of his Mother and his brother As it passed from the Gulick Home to the burial ground at it a presbyterian Church. Only on one occasion was he out of lower Augusta township and that was Friday night when he entered the Palmer House at Northumberland and bought a Glass of Beer. Gulick says that he did not expect to find landlord Zerbe present at that hour and hence made a Hasty exit As explained in the Telegram which was received by the chief of police at this City Ami printed in these columns saturday. He was in Danville the next Day he admits which would lend color to the Story of John and George a Alderman saturday last who claimed to have had a conversation with a Man on Montour Ridge who answered the description of Gulick. The a Alderman Brothers during the Forenoon were strolling Over the Mountain. Upon reaching the Vicinity of the old Ore Drift on the South Side of the Ridge near the a dug Road they were surprised to see a Man emerge from the mine. The Fellows dirty and Haggard appearance betokened the hardest kind of usage and the two Brothers at once thought of Gulick. They managed to get into conversation with the Man but could get but Little satisfaction from him his conduct being very suspicious. Upon leaving the Drift the Man went in the direction of Mooresburg. The boys returned to town immediately and reported the matter to chief Mincemoyer. The chief had a photograph of the murderer and As soon As the two Laid their eyes upon it they were struck with the resemblance. Some doubted the boys but Many others who heard them relate their Story Felt convinced that they were telling the truth. There Are few persons to be found who Are inclined to attribute Gulicki a inhuman crime to mental derangement. Those who knew him Best have no such plea to make. The Warden of the Sunbury jail sunday stated that he was perfectly rational and showed no sign of mental weakness.
