Trouble at the County Home
Joseph LANSBERY, an inmate of the County Home, aged 79 years, had a
warrant issued by 'Squire Barclay last week for Maurice HUTH, one of
the nurses at the Home, charged with assault and battery.
Mr. LANSBERY alleges that HUTH choked him, shoved him against the door
and otherwise abused him because he refused to carry a tray of food to
a negro who claimed he was too ill to come to the dining room.
HUTH gave bail for a hearing which was to have taken place yesterday
but was postponed until Saturday.
The plaintiff is a life-long resident of the county, born in Lawrence
township, of one of the pioneer families of the county. The defendant
came from Jefferson county with his brother, Merrill HUTH, a few
months ago. They fill the two best positions at the Home, at $40 per
month each. The defendant was married a couple of weeks ago and has
his wife at the Home.
People who remember "Joe" LANSBERRY of 40 years ago, when they heard
of the fracus smiled and thought of what HUTH would look like to-day
if "Joe" was as husky as in those days.

Court House Notes
Judge GORDON held argument court Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this
week. Monday was largely devoted to swearing in constables, approving
their bonds, etc.
Argument was heard on the held over liquor licenses in DuBois,
resulting in granting license to McEwen, of the Hoffman house, and
Chestnut, of the National, the latter succeeding "Dick" Evans. The
Fisher license was in some manner reopened and argument heard.
Wednesday the Fisher license was again brought before Judge GORDON and
he refused to further consider it. Standing by his refusal handed
down when license court adjourned in January. Some people say the
story that Fisher was offering to bet $500 the license would be
granted was the blow that killed Fisher.
Judge GORDON did not grant the transfer in DuBois from Gray to W.J.
Cox. He said he had nothing against Mr. Cox, but he had granted the
license to Gray understanding that Gray intended running the hotel
An Active Organization
At the regular meeting of the Children's Aid Society on Friday, Feb.
28, 1902, a special vote of thanks was extended to Capt. Clayton ERB,
and Hon. Israel w. DURHAM, of Philadelphia, for their donations to the
society. Although it is not generally known, these gentlemen visited
Clearfield as witnesses during the last term of court, and upon
receiving the amount of costs due them, $20.78 each, turned the checks
for the same over to the treasurer of the Children's Aid Society.
This organization has been the recipient of a number of other
donations during the last year, viz: J.F. WEAVER, estate, $25.00; Mrs.
A.B. WEAVER, $12.00; Mrs. Margaret BETTS, $5.00, and Mrs. J.M.
WADDELL, $5.00. Theses, with the $41.56 of the Philadelphia
gentlemen, made cash donations of $88.56.
The society, desirous of placing this money where its benefits would
be far reaching and lasting, and at the same time bring the greatest
good to the greatest number of children, decided to use this
particular fund in fitting up and furnishing a children's room in the
new Clearfield hospital.
The plan having met with the approval of the hospital authorities a
committee of ladies was given charge of the work which is now
The room is complete in its equipments for the care and comfort of any
little patients who may be placed in it. And by this expenditure of
these donations the benefits of the kind donors will reach not only
the wards of the Aid society who may require hospital treatment, but
to all other little sufferers who may seek healing within its doors.
A Laudable Project
An effort has been made to have the magazines and illustrated papers
which the purchasers have read and thrown aside, gathered up for the

for putting a box on the walls of the postoffice as a receptacle for
magazines, etc. Steward HORTON will get them there and see that they
