She Was Particular.

A young man of Nicktown recently saw the name of Katie Paradise, of Bloomington, Ill., in a matrimonial paper and started a correspondence with her. Matters progressed all right and a few weeks ago the verdant youth “popped the question” and was accepted. His future bride came to Ebensburg on Thursday of last week, where she met him and demanded to see the property he claimed to own, so they drove out to Nicktown to inspect it. She evidently was not satisfied with the future husband’s prospects, as she told him on their return to that place that she would not marry him. She took her departure on Saturday, leaving a disappointed young man to wend his weary way homeward. An Ebensburg man, on hearing the story, said; “Paradise lost again.”

No Beech Creek.

The Herald has made extensive inquiries and learns that the Beech Creek Railroad has no notion of extending its line from Mahaffey to Johnstown. This statement is made on the authority of A. G. Palmer, of Jersey Shore, one of the directors of the Beech Creek Railroad, who visited Patton on Friday. Mr. Palmer said that he knew absolutely nothing of such a project, and that he would certainly be acquainted with the proposed road even before it had been surveyed. – Johnstown Herald.

The Altoona “Gazette’s” Offer.

Last year the Altoona Gazette conducted an educational contest open to all young ladies in Blair County, promising to send the winner for one year to Indiana Normal. Miss E. Blanche Beamer, the daughter of a deceased soldier and a worthy young lady, won the prize and is at present enjoying the benefit of it. The Gazette will repeat the contest this year; it will open February 1st and continue six months.

He Rued Bargain.

Some time since it was announced that Geo. B. Brandon had sold his big hotel at Spangler to Geo. W. Jose, of LaJose. Mr. Jose runs a fine hotel at his present location, and he had sold it also. His purchaser seems to have backed out, however, and Mr. Jose has also refused to take the Brandon. A suit for damages is one of the possibilities.

Killed at the Fair.

The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Frank Gable, of Johnstown, while on a visit with his parents to the World’s Fair last October, has been cleared up by the finding of his his [sic] body in Lake Michigan. The body was found on January 28th, and was identified by a receipt in the pocket of his vest. From marks on the body and from the fact that the young man’s watch and money were missing, it is supposed that he was the victim of foul play.

No Trace of Bookamire.

Up to this time no trace has been found of Jacob Bookamire, who is accused of the murder of John Cunningham, near Purchase Line. The fugitive was seen in this place since the murder, but it was before the news had been received. By some people it is believed that he has desires on the life of his wife, of whom he was intensely jealous, and that he will linger in this vicinity on that account.
