Possibly James L. Pugh?

James L. Pugh, born August 1844, was a longtime lawyer in Somerset PA. He served in the Civil War. I don't know why he would be photographed in a smoking coat, but the book may signify that he is reading law. The connection to Selinsgrove is unclear. Susquehanna University, founded 1858, has never had a law program.
