It now scorns probable that the

they will. Thev have worked, or
rather idled, long enough for

public benefit, by adjourning spt edi
HON. J. MCDOWELL SHARPE,mem

county, died at his home in Chain

Mr. Sharpe was a lawyer of emi
nent ability, sterling integrity, well
known and highly respected through
out the state.
Democrats are you Registered.
The day for the registry of voters
this year will be Thursday, Sept. 6, and
out of abundant caution every voter
should satisfy himself that his nanas is
on the book with a tax assessed against
him. O. her wise he may b) disfran
chised. Democratic committeemen and
politicians should be active and en
ergetic in looking after this now,to the
exclusion of every other political con
aideratiou. It will not do to assume
that because the bulk of the voters
piid their taxes last year that the reg
istry this year is au unimportant mat
ter. Special attention should bo given
to the registry of all persons who did
not pay taxes last year,to persons re
cently naturalized or about to be nat
uralized,to those who voted "on age"
last year or who will be come 2-' years of
age before February,and to all whose
resideuce has been changed since Nov
emUer, 1883. "Attention to the regis
try" is the immediate duty of all in
terested in Democratic organization.
Something of an idea of the enor
m uis bulk of silver accumulated in the
T easury Department may be given by
the statement that it weighs upwards
of five thousand tons of two thousand
pounds each. It would require five
hundred cars to transport it, allowing
teu tons to a car,the ordinary car load.
No wonder the departments find trou
ble to obtain storage room for the mou- •
ey that won't circulate.
Tho Great Growth of Chicago.
From the Inter-Ocean.
Fifty years ago today tlio town of
Chicago was incorporated. Thero were
then CCD inhabitants. There nro now
tiO'.tyHK). At the date of incorporation
of Chicago St. Louis had a population
of 15,000, Cincinnati nearly 2 ),00 \
Pittsburg 15,000, Philadelphia 85,000,
and New York 250,000. Chicago was
at the tail end of western villages,while
all the places mentioned were cities.
The village that mustered forty-six
votes on the 10th of August, 1 s • > : , has
outstripped all the cities of the United
'States of that day, except New York
New York, founded in 1050, did not
reach a population of 500,000 until
1850, and Philadelphia did not reach
the same standard un til lSt>>. In oth
er words, Chicago has accomplished as
much in the way of growth in tifty
years as New York did in 210.
Sober Words of Truth.
The marriage laws of Pennsylvania
are sadly in need of amendment, riieie
are few states in the union in which it
is easier for persons to become man
and wife. No license is nocessnrv.
N< previous publication of the inten
tion of the parties is demanded. No
witnesses are required. There is a
: law, it is true, forbidding the marriage
of minors, but it is seldom enforced.
; In fact there is absolutely no restric
-1 lion in the subject at all. If a man
and woman take up housekeeping to
gether and the man introduces the wo
man as his wife, they aio lu l 1 by the
courts to lie as truly married as though
adi zen preachers had tied the knot*
Perhaps this would be all right if it
> were not for the misery to which it so
frequently leads. The ease with which
( marriages may bo contracted tempts
many young and foolish persons to en
ter into this relation with little thought
: and a meie surface acquaintance. A
passing whim, a sudden impulse of
1 passion, is mistaken for true regard
which alone is abiding. In a little
time the young people discover e acn
■ other's faults. The novelty of their
[ new relation wears off, the husband de
-1 sorts his wife and she dies to the too
i compliant divorce courts for release,
I only, in too many instances to repent
' her former bitter experience. The
next legislature should be invited to
! give this important matter its serious
attention. The stability of the home
is a pillar of public security. Altooua
The Ready Reference Tax Receipt
Book, with Summary Index
Arranged for Ten Years.
By a Country Editor.
THE READY REFERENCE TAX RE
CEIPT BOOK will c mmend itself to
practical business men at sight. Its
forms are so concise and plain that all
may readily understand and use them.
The Summary Index will show at a
glance the increase or decrease of as
sessed valuation and taxes from year to
year for a period of teu years.
Every taxable citizen, and especially
every voter, should make it a rule to
take receipts for all taxes paid. This
is not only prudent on business princi
ples, but actually necessary in order to
ei joy tlie continued light to vote. It
is also a matter of no small considera
tion to have all tax receipts for a ser
ies of years together in convenient
form for reference and comparison.
We here give only a few out of a
great many testimonials by the press :
We have received a copy of "The Ready Re
ference Tax Receipt Book, with summary in
dex, arranged for ten years," published by El
der,*!: Bentley, 432 Market St., IMiila., and in
vented or deviled by a "country editor." name
ly— l?ro. B. o. Dtlninger of the Miilheim Jour
nal. It is copyrighted and therefore secure
from infringement, which was a w'se precau
tion to take in these days of mo' cy-niaking.
The book contains about TObiank receipts, neat
ly printed on an excellent quality of paper,
nothing cramped—allowing plenty space for
writing—and is well bound. At the back part it
has an index, where one can keep a record of
ail his taxes paid during the year—a summary
—and tind the total. Tills "summary iiidi'x''
makes the book good for ten years. It is just
such a book that every taxpayer ought to have,
far, by its use you have all your receipts of this
kind under cover, well preserved, and easy to
find when wanted. We bespeak for it a large
A VAI.UAN LB LITTLE BOOK.-Editor Ptdnin
gcr of tlie Mlllheiin Journal (Miilheim, Centre
county, I'H.) has strucjc a bonanza, lie has in
vented a "Ready Reference Tax Receipt Book,"
wh.ch every tax-payer will say "supplies a long
felt want" as soon as he looks at it. It has a
summary index, arranged for ten years, which
will enable the person who uses the book to see
at a glance the insrease or decrease of his as
sessed valuation and taxes from year to year.
The advantage of having one's receipts for tax
es for a series of years together in a convenient
form for reference, instead of on loose pieces of
paper, is so obvious that Hie book will undoubt
edly have an extensive sale wherever introduc
ed. Brother Dciuinger has struck a good, prac
tical idea, from which the HEIIALD predicts he
will enjoy a handsome revenue. It has been
copyrighted and will be printed and sold by

Market street, Philadelphia.— Erie Herald.
Our editorial friend, B. O. Deiniuger, of the
Miilheim Journal, is always inventing some
scheme for increasing Ids bank account. His
latest etfort in this direction is the Introduction
of a new blank book styled the "Ready Refer
ence Tax Receipt Book," a copy of which we
have received through the courtesy of Mr.
Deininger. The, "Ready Reference" is a very
useful book, conveniently arranged and neatly
bound. It should be in the possession of every
taxable citizen, and will no doubt have an ex
tensive sale.— Bellefonte Republican.
Bro. B. O. Deininger, the senior of the Mill
' heim Journal, has recently struck upon a handy
thing. It is an indexed tax receipt book, with
receipts and indices enough to last a tax payer
ten years. It is published by Elder & Bentley,
423 Market street, Philadelphia, and copyright
ed. It is in a convenient sidepocket form.—
