SKETCH Or THE LIFE OF
HON. .JVTOS O. NOVEB,
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE POT. STATE TREA?
tlllEIt. Col, A, 0. Noycs was born in Crnfton
county, New Hampshire, November 17th,
1818, whero his ancestors, who were of
Scotch-Irish descent, resided and were
among the pioneers in the settlement of this
State. His father was a farmer and gained
among his fellow citizens, largely made up
of the same element (Scotch, Irish and En
glish), a reputation for sterling integrity and
activity in all measure or improvements
that tended to prouioto tho Interest and suc
cess of those engaged In cultivating tho
TABSIEB, SCHOOL TEACHER AND LUM
Col, Noyes spent his youth in actlvo
work on his father's farm, attending tho
viPaijo school during the winter months,
until he was competent to assume the posi
tion that in tho good old days of the Repub
lic was tho highest ambition of the boys of
tho country and village, that of teacher of
tho district school. In this maniif r of liv
ing he attained man's estate, when, in part
nership with his father, ho engaged in lum
bering on the Connecticut river. The success
of this enterprise led him to seek in his ear
ly ambition, a wider field of operation.
EMIGRATES TO PENNSYLVANIA.
The plucrie9 of the west branch of the
Susnuehaiina. at that time an almost path
less wilderness offered an inviting field to
one constituted like him, and thither, in
1S47, he made his way, locating at tho point
now known as Emporium, Cameron county,
where ho remained two years, when ho re
moved to Westport, Clinton county, at the
mouth of Kettle Creek, on tho same branch
of the river, where ho has resided ever
siuca, actively encaged In lumbering, farm
ing and merchandizing.
THE LUMBERMEN'S DIFFICULTIES.
In theso days of railroad facilities, it is
hard for any to realize tho amount of work
and privation connected with the industries
in which Col. Noye3 engaged. All the sup
plies for logging camps and squaro timber
crews were transported in canoes during the
summer, or sleds in winter, from Lock Ha
ven and Williamspoit J but to a man deter
mined to let no natural obstacle prevent bu
siness success, these difficulties only brought
forth corresponding energy and determina
tion on his part, l'requently has tno wri
ter of this sketch seen the Colonel with his
heavy canoe load of flour, meat and other
neccsary supplies, polliug his way through
the channels of tho river from Lock Haven
A MAN WHO WAS NOT AFRAID TO WORK.
He has always been a large operator, em
ploying a large number of men, with whom
ho was always in sympathy, ready to doff his
coat and tako a hand in "logging" with
tho boys, and in the early spriug floods, none
so welcome on ,tuo river irum esi
port to Columbia as Col. Noyes, pilot
ing his numerous Bquaro timber rafts from
homo to market, always the same, whether
in the woods, on the river, or in the timber
mart generous, frank, open hearted, honest
and true to his friends, relioving many of
his less fortunate competitors and neighbors
at Columbia from loss by his money and ad

In 16G1, SberiirChatlmm, the Kepublican
nom nee.tleleatpd uoi. j arret, n very pupu
lar Democrat in his district, by four hundred
maioritv. In 1S02 Col. Noyea, as the Denv
ocratio candidate, defeated Jlr. Chatham m
the same district, by twelve hundred majori
ty, making a change in that district in favor
of the Democracy ofs ixtceu hundred. This
was emphatically a triumph, not only lor
the Democracy, but also lor the nard-uanu
ed lumbermen of tho district. Ilia term iu
the Legislature cavo such entire satisfaction
to his constituents, being tilled with honest
fidelity, that he was triumphantly re-elected
in 18G3. In 1SC8 he was a Presidential elec
tor on the Democratic ticket.
TWICE AOAIN VICTOItlOUS.
In 1870 tho Legislative district waschang
ed to embrace Clinton, Cameron and JIc-
Kean, aud again Col. Noyes was put innoin
iuation. Cameron was a Republican county
and gave Kcofield, tho Kepublican for Con
gress forty-five majority ; at the same elec
tion it gave Col. Noyes, the Democratic can
didate for Assembly, three hundred and for
ty-eight majority, and he was onco mere tri
In 1871 the district was again changed to
comprise Clinton, Lycoming and Sullivan
forming a double district, sending two mem
bcrs. Col. Noycs was again nominated and
elected, It was during this session lie ol-
fered the bill to reduce boomage, on logs nt
Williamsport from fl,5 per thousand feet
to 00 cents. This bill excited much atten
Hon at the time throughout the entire Com
monwealth, on accouut of the outrageous
manner of its defeat in a midnight session
THIS BOOM MONOPOLY
was at that time especially obnoxious to all
parties engaged directly or indirectly iu the
manufacture and salo of lutnberon the West
Hrauch of tho Susquehanna and its trihuta
ries, and but few persons had knowledgo of
the extent of the cost and extra labor in
tllctcdon tho lumbermen and consequent ad
ditlonal cost to the consumer made by the
decrees of a souleless corporation under the
power of an act of Assembly, ro wonder
that lumbermen are down ou corporations.
Col. Noyes did all that was in the power of
one mau to do to havo the cost of boomage
reducid to au equitable price, but tho corpo'
ration bad in their hand a more potent lev
er, and the bill was killed Iu the House in a
TUB PEOrLK APPKOVE 1118 COURSE.
In 1872 he dcliucd Icing a candidate,
pleading the party cvstoinof theconetculive
two-term rule, but his constituency claimed
that although he hud served a portion ef the
district two years, yet he had served but ono
year in tho district as now composed, and ho
wa3 again re-elected a rcmarkablo testimo
ny, of his character for Integrity in tho dis
charge of tho duties of n Legislator in a dis
trict whero candidates of known ability,
anxious to servo tho people in that capacity
nro able to be found in most nny township,
NAMED rOB OOVEIINOB.
In 1875 Col. Noyes was prominently nam
ed for Governor before tho Democratic Con
vention that met at Eric. Without reflection
upon the candidates nominated by thatCon
ventlon, it is but just to say that the pro
ceedings of that body were n disgrace to tho
party, as it becatno merely an arena for n
gladiatorial combat between rival factions
for tho ascendency, sacrificing such men as
Col. Noycs, Judge Koss and Hon. Orange
Noble in the selfish strugglo for suprema
NOMINATE!) FOB STATE TBEASUBEB.
Col. Noyes was nominated by tho late
Harrisburg Convention as the Democratic
candidate for State Treasurer. As is tho in
evltablo case, whero two strong candidates
are opposed for tho samo position, bitter
animosities arise, aud charges are made that
in themselves bear evidence of untruthful
ncss. That such should be the case is at
least unfortunate for those who adopt this
system of warfare, but in most instances it
Is the sure sequence of a heated canvass.
The struggle over, as it Bhould be, animosl
ties are forgotten, tho work of tho conven
tion approved, and all tho different elements
aro working heartily to secure the election
of tho entlro ticket.
NOT A POLITICIAN.
Col Noycs has never been .1 politician in
the general acceptance of tho term, but has
always been ready to obey the call of his
party and numerous personal friends. Five
times elected to tho Legislature, at period
when the working people of his district felt
tho need of just such a representative, hi1
majority each time running largely ahead of
the party ticket, is sufficient proof of the c
timation of his honest integrity, vigor and

NOT A COItPOEATION MAN.
It has been charged, and perhaps with
some effect, whero tho facts are unknown
that Col. Noyes is the friend and advocate 0:
corporations, especially railroads. This is
undoubtedly true in ono respect, but not in
tho senso his adversaries would eLdeavor to
make it appear. Whilst with every other
business man ho wishes for tho financial suc
cess of tho great arteries of commerce that
connect tho Atlantic with racific, he Ufor
holding them slrietly lo the purpose for which
the people granted them their chartered priv
ileges, and would, with his solid, calm judg
ment at all times bo found on tho side of
right, when great corporations seek t be-.
como masters instead of servants. The bus
iness man who is interested in his own suc
cess in lifo and the prosperity and develop
ment of the resources of the nation who
would act differently, or as the enemy of tho
railroad system, must be a lunatic, and un-
safo to hahdle .1 public trust.
HELPS TO BUILD THE V. & E. BOAD.
Tho writer of this is familiar with tho his
tory of all his railroad connections. In
1857, when the rhil. & Erio railroad was
struggling under heavy financial difficulties
which threatened to defeat or at least defer
its completion, Col. Noyes, in tho interest of
his lumber and mercantile operations,which
were in a laige measuro dependent for suc
cess on tho completion of this road, applied
tho weight of his energy .character and mon
ey to ensuro the completion of that work
Untiring in bis eflerts and surmounting oh'
staclcs of every nature, tho road from Lock
Haven to Driftwood is to-day a monument
ot his exertions and at that time sacrifice of
his personal estate.
At tho request of nn old friend, living in
a distant State, lie accepted a few shares of
stock in the Bald Eagle Valley Railroad, for
the purpose of making him eligible as a di
rector of that road. This trust was accepted
ed to servo a friend of his early manhood,
whoso confidence in his judgment and in
tegrlty imposed the trust upon him. This
is tho only railroad stock of which ho is the
IN SYMPATHY WITH 'WORKINC1MKN
In conclusion, I would say to those who
are now engaged in working "out a plan to
securo for tho workingmen who depend up
on their daily toil for thfc necessary comforts
and luxuries of lifo for themselves and fam
iliosthat Col.Noyes is in full sympathy witli
them ! not only that, hut he is a living mod
el to the young men of the country of what
perseverance, honest integrity and daily toil
can accomplish for any who, like him, de
terinine to succeed. Starting in active life
at twenty-one years of age, he commenced
working in a saw mill in his native State at
thi teen dollars per jnonth, his salary in
creasing with each year's services. At tho
end of three years ho was taken into part
nership, and for threo years after was the
foreman not only of the work but foremost in
haying it done. This position, attained no
doubt by his industry and capability, would
have satisfied the ambition of most young
men, Not so with Col. Noycs. The piner
ies of Pennsylvania offered a moro inviting
field for his ambition, and although many
difficulties and privations had to bo encoun
tered, ho was equal to them all, and now, in
his 69th year, he can sit down under his own
vino and fig tree, tho work ot his hands, and
enjoy with his family and friends the fruits
of his industry.

Influence of the l'lano on Musical Compo
I bcllovo there has been no 'more porni-
clous Influence) upon music than the trans
formation which tho plano-forto has under
gone sinco llecthoven's time, and its diffu
sion over all tho world. I do not refer to
the cruelties which it is daily the means of
nflicting upon inoffensivo families and truo
lovers of music, but to tho effect that it has
had upon composition and upon perform
ance. The former it has helped to bo nt
onco flashy, dull, intricate nnd shallow j
tho latter it has led to bo astonishing. Bril
liancy, n crowd of notes, sonority, all, with
out beauty of form or emotional suggestive-
ness this is tho music which the modern
grand piano-forlo has brought upon us. Not
only plano-forto music, but in a measuro nil
music, has become a brilliant fantasia by
Signor ltumblcstomlnski. Wo do not sit in
a passive silenco to listen to it ; we talk, or
aro tempted to talk against it ; and tho
praise wo give it is not a look of serene joy,
with that tingo of sadness which Shake
speare had in mind when he made Jessica
say, "I'm never merry when 1 hear Bweet
music," but a clapping of tho hands and
congratulation upon 11 brilliant triumph
nd then wo turn asido and go on with our
society gabble. Orchestral leaders and per
formers aro not content unless they have a
score to "interpret." They must have a big
brilliant noise. The pitch has been raised
until singers shriek, in order that the tone
of tho instrument may be brilliant. Our
ears must bo shot through and through with
piercing shafts of sound. Tho timo is quick-
ened until allegro has become presto, and
presto a maddened indfstinguishablo rush.
Even Thcodoro Thomas loses some of the
majesty of tho final movement of the "Fifth
Symphony" by too quick a movement j and
in tho Trio of tho Scherzo ho drives the
basses into a headlong scramble up and
down the scale. When tho clear succession
nf notes becomes indistinguishable, musical
form, and with it musical beauty is lost, aud
tho performance becomes a mere victory
over musical difficulties. And this quicken
ing of timo is exactly what should not have
taken place. Our orchestras havo increased
in size and in volume of sound since the days
of Jlozart and Beethoven. As larger bodies,
therefore, their movement should bo a littlo
slower to produce the effect which tho great
composers had in mind. Hut in our rago
for brilliancy we havo hastened the move
ment ; as if we should tnako an elephant
gallop like a horse. Moreover we have fal
len into tho fatal error of making tho finish,
if not tho difficulty of execution, superior
to the presentation of beauty in form and
in expression. Richard Grant While in the

How Kid Gloves are Made.
Tho Discovery of Fire.
Fire, tho common source of heat, of light,
and of life, and tho actlvo principle of a
multitude of industries, and of metallurgical
industry in particular, is unquestionably
one of tho greatest conquests achieved by
man over nature.
Tho discovery of fire was more than a
benefit : it was, in fact, a giant stndo on
the road to civilization. With fire arose
sociability, the family, the sacred joys of
the domestic hearth, all industries, nil arts
together with the wonders they have pro-
duced, and still produce from day to day
Hence we can readily understand how it is
that firo has ever been and still is, among
many nations, tho object of a special wor
ship (priests of Baal, Ghebers, Hindoos,
Brahmins, Koman vestals, priestesses ot tno
sun in Peru, etc. ;) and that it often figured
in tho religious or funeral rites of nations
most remote from ono another, both in timo
and space, as theChaldees, Hebrews.Greeks,
lloman, Peruvians, Mexicans, etc. But
how and when was this great discovery
made, in the absence of which we can hard
ly conceive of the possibility of human
arts or even of human existence? Did man,
as we are told in the myths of India and
Greece, steal fire from heaven ? or did he
as other legends affirm, tako advantago of
spontaneous forest-fires, arising from the
violent rubbing together of dry branches
underjthe action of the wind, or finally, was
man so ingenious, from the beginning, ns to
devise one of those simple and practical con
trivances by means pf which certain savage
and half-civilized tribes in our own time ob
tain the fire they need for their dally uses?
Novel Use for Carrier l'igcoiis.
The experiment which was tried last win
ter of employing carrier pigeons to bring
early intelligence every morning from the
fishing ground, off the Scotch coast, of the
results of tho night's labor, is again being
restored to this season. One of the birds is
taken out in every boat in tho afternoon,and
after tho nets have been hauled on the fol
lowing morning, the pigeon is dispatched
with a Bmnll piece of parchment tied round
its neck, containing information as to the
extent of tho catch, the position of the boat
the direction of the wind, and the prospects
of tho return journey. If there is not wind
to take the boat back, or If it is blowing In
an unfavorable direction, a request is made
for a tug, and from the particulars given
as to the bearings nf tho craft, she can be
picked up easily by the eteamer. Most of
the pigeons, when let off from tho boats,
circle three times round overhead, and then
sweep away toward the land with great ra-
pidy, generally Hying at the rate of about
a mile per minute.
Gloves have been iu use from very early
times, being mentioned by such ancient
writers as Homer and Xenophon. During
the middle ages they wero worn by certain
ofliclats as n mark of dignity. But as civil
ization advanced they gradually became
common to all classes of the community. In
the early part of this century thcro was nu
positive regularity in the cut nnd shapo of
kid gloves, all being left to tho judgment of
tho cutter, who had no systematic pattern.
In 1831 Xavier Jouviu invented a new me
thod ot cutting tho kid, doing it with geo
metrical precision. His system is extremely
elaborate, having thirty-two sizes, and cut
ting ten widths to each size, in all making
32 different numbers. Sinco then other
manufacturers have numerous improvements
in shape, finish and stitching, and now the
best makes havo almost reached perfection,
and merit tho growing demand, which is
such that the price of skins has advanced fif
ty per cent in tho last fifteen years.
The term "kid," however, is a mere tech
nicality, as the quantity consumed annually
of leather bearing this name is largely in
excess of what could be supplied from the
the skins of tho young goats that are anna
ally slaughtered, lamb and other thin skins
being extensively used. The value of tho
kid gloves manufactured in France is esti
mated at $10,000,000, and there are large
quantities made in Italy, Germany nnd Eng
land, and a comparatively small amount in
this country at Gloversvillo nnd New York
As tho sewing of a single pair of ladles'
kid gloves requires five thousand stitches,
for which tho continental manufacturers pay
about ten cents, it can readily be seen that
this industry cannot bo carried on exten
sively in this country. Tho seams are sewed
with perfect regularity by placing the edges
to be united in the jans of a vice, which
terminate iu fine brass teeth like those of a
comb, but only onetU'clfth of an inch long,
tho stitches being held by a kuot to prevent
ripping, which used to bo a frequent source
of trouble. It is necessary that the animal
should be killed young, because as soon as
it begins to feed on herbage its skin is im
paired for this purpose. Eggs are very ex
tensively used in preparing skins, it being
estimated that 00,000,000 are annually used
in England and France alone. In coloring
the kids dye is applied to the outer skin
with a brush by hand ; if the skins were in
mersed the inner portion would also receive
the dye aud stain tho hand.
France excels all in tho variety and rich
ness of her colors, which is attributed to her
atmosphere and water producing 200 dif
ferent shades. Ladies' sizes run from 6 to
8 j gents"from 7 to 11 ; misses' from 4 to
fl). Gents' are longer in the fingers and
higher in the wrist than those of ladies' of
like number, though they are alike in width
and the misses' gloves are narrower.

A Curious Lawsuit.
Los Angeles has had, a novel lawsuit. It
came before a justice's court.and was to this
effect j A had a sick horse which was going
in great suffering.and which he thought was
to.die. So he took the horse to B, a livery
stable keeper, and said, "I will givo you
five dollars to kill this horse for mo." "AU
right," said 11. So A paid the five dollars,
left tho horse in charge of B and went away.
B could not, however, summon sufficient
nerve to kill the poor animal, so in his turn,
B said to C. "If you will kill this horse
for me I will givo you five dollars." "All
right," said C. 0, however, did not
kill the horse, but doctored him'and re
stored him to health. A, much to his sur
prise, one day saw 0 driving a fine animal,
which A unmistakably recognized ns his
formerly sick, horse. A demanded, the horse
from C j C refused to givo him up, and A
brought suit ogainst ,0 to recover possession
ofthehorso. The, jury decided that 0 was
entitled to the horse. Wo understand that
the case will,be appealed to the county

a fierce snarl the infuriated lion bounded
forward. Catching ono of its open jaws iu

Danger of Wearing Belts.
The evils arising from compression of tha
chest and body in early lifo are not exclu
sively restricted to the female sex. School
boys and youths constantly practice the
habit of binding up their clothes around
their bodies by means of a belt tightened
firmly above the hips, instead of wearing
the braces over tho shoulder. Some boys
and youths are also taught the plan of put
ting on an extra belt for "holding in tha
breath," before they run or leap. In tha
pursuit ot certain active businesses in which
weights have to be carried, this same sys
tem ot wearing a tight belt is adopted and
practiced by workingmen, until the artifi
cial and ingenious support, as it is assumed
to be, becomes, like tho corset of a woman,
a veritable necesstiy. To the belt the
same objection applies as to the tight
band and corset. It impedes the free action
of tho abodomtual. organs. ; it impedes the
freedom of the respiratlou it interferes

who wear it while they are running, rowing
