-News It is derstood that Mr. Murrelle has purchased an interest in the Reporter- Journal. Prof. J. M.

Arnold, formerly of the Towanda public schools, is having a very successful career Princeton, N. J. The schools at Princeton are considered among the very best in the State of New Jersey, being, as they are, under the shadow of the great university, and no one but a first-class man could hold such a position. Prof. Arnold has now been there three years, and his salary has twice been voluntarily raised, and he is now receiving a salary of $2,000 do a year.

The school directors of Princeton, however, are educated and intelligent several of them being graduates' of the university, and the all subject being of deeply education. interThis is doubtless the reason why Prof. Arnold has been retained and his salary raised. If the Princeton school board were made up of ward politicians, as has too often been the case in Towanda, things would probably be very different from what they are there. Politics and schools do not mix well, 88 the people of Towanda have learned to their sorrow.

However, the STAR wishes to inform this dictatorial manager that insolence. threate anda bullyism won't go in Towanda the people are in this fight to stay until justice is done them.

Why was The Hole Plugged! It will be remembered that the Black Diamond 0:1 and Gas comE. recently put down a well at Darell to the depth of 1510 feet. driller said, there was no oil and plugged the hole. In the neighborhood there. were some observing people who kept an eye open.

It was discovered that oil bad been found at a depth of 615 feet bat the drillers kept at work. Finally the drillers completed their job. proncanced the well a plugged the hole and went awAy. Coriosity and interest would not cease, and a few days ago F. N.

Dixon and F. N. Phillipe again visited the well. They found that the plugging had not teen thoroughly done and that petroleum was escaping from the well in large quantities. A gallon was gathered in a few minutes, tested by burning, and samples bottled and brougbt to Towanda.

Comparisons were made with other crude oil and it was found that there was no preceptible difference between them. It can not be questioned that the sample hibited is a first class petroleum and we think the most skeptical can be convinced if he will call and examine the sample left at the STAR office. The question now arises. why was the hole plugged? Have those interested been tricked? It would look 80, and the people of Asylum should make 8 more thorough investigation of the possible great wealth lying under their farms, before the enterprise is abandoned. The old Susquehanna is bank full since the recent rain.

A Berke county jury oas indorsed the act of the principal of a public school who punished a fourteenyear-old girl by compelling her to make a snoot for the edification of the other pupils. The principal bad detected the girl making a snoot 11 at himself, and his personal pride was to shocked and his feelings so injured that he determined upon an unchivalric revenge. Having exhibited her abil.ty to purse her ruby lips into an uncomplimentary "snoot" at his expense the principal ordered the maiden to stand upon a pedestal and make "snoot" at the whole school, and his arrest on the charge of cruelty followed. The jury sitting on the 0380 was ungallant enough to decide that charge of cruelty was not sustained, and the pedagogue was acquitted.

CAMPAIGN OF 1835. In 1835 the Democratic party of the county divided on the presidential question, one branch being in favor of John McLean for president. the other in favor of Martin Van Buren. Wolf had been regarded an ideal governor by the Bradford Democrats but was turned down in the State convention and Henry A. Mahlenberg nominated to head the ticket that year.

This broadened the breach between the Democratic factiona, which with the differences of opinion on the question of the United States Bank, the anti-Masonic movement, added to the confasion and uncertainty of the contest. Two tickets had been nominated by the Democrats of the county, which resulted in a victory for the more independent element. The vote taken Oct. 13 showed the following result for governor George Wolf, Independent Democrat, had 1504 votes Joseph Ritner, anti- Mason, 1239; H. A.

The Bradford Star from Towanda, Pennsylvania (2024)


Who founded Bradford County PA? ›

Originally called Ontario County, it was reorganized and separated from Lycoming County on October 13, 1812, and renamed Bradford County for William Bradford, who had been a chief justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and United States Attorney General.

What is the history of Towanda PA? ›

Incorporated in 1828, Towanda gets its name from Native Americans who considered the land a beautiful place to bury their dead. Towanda started as a lumber town, and several of its buildings from the early 1800s still stand; many are listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

Who is Bradford, PA named after? ›

The county was created in 1810 and named for William Bradford, a politician and jurist who served in George Washington's cabinet. The county seat is Towanda. The economy depends on manufacturing (metal products and photographic equipment) and agriculture (livestock, dairy products, and field crops).

How old is Bradford Pennsylvania? ›

Settlers first came to the area about 1823 or 1827, but Bradford itself was not established until 1837. First called Littleton, it took the name Bradford after 1854, probably for the New Hampshire home of many of its settlers.
