a brief period, branding the minds of the at,

noble, his illustrations he antiful aud his pow

The experiment of excluding-the public on
Sunday from the grounds seems to have been a
success, while it does not give general satisfac
tion. Notwithstanding the vigilance of the
officers several young men succeeded by strategy
in affecting an entrance. Water carriers had
the "open sesame," by hiring a bucket each and
filling it with water. These woidly gentiles

It la a general rule thai man when he seteclss
a location for a pcrminent residence if It Is
possible selects a healthy locality, as health
desirable to happiness, combined with the
religion of Jesus Christ the great King and
cad of the church. But there are also advau
tages arising out of such a location as to make
desirable, such as educational facilities,
lien we have in our Stale Normal
School under Its worthy Principal, Rev. D. J,
alter jr., and his able corps of Proffessors
for the training of our young men and
young women and fitting them for every depart'
ment In the active business of life, and the
public are forcibly impressed with the high
indud of Instruction which the institution
pursues. Our common school system Is also In
flourishing condition with their stately till
fices and competent teachers, for every depart
ent. hen I contrast the past when I received
ray education, the rude log house, the old ten
ate stove, the rude benches on which we had
to sit, how striking the picture of the past
and tho present! And yet in that day, we had
teachers who could teach the young mind to
shoot.whoee rules where law, and who knew the
art of governing a school. I do say that it is not
e best educated men or women that are the
most successful teachers. If they lack govern
ment it is a failure. There is also another ad
vantage and adesirable one, and that is the Sand-
ary privileges to which all have access. All
classes c n be accommodated, as to Dcnomtna-
ttonalism, the Episcopal, the Lutheran, the
Reformed, Baptist, Presbyterian, the Metho
dist, the Evangelical, Christian and Catholic
churches, with able nnd efficient ministers of
tbc Gospel. All may go and hear and accept
or reject. Our citizens are moral and I believe
n proportion, to Its population,lhere isnot as large
Church going people in any town I know of.
Sucli a place we have In our beautiful town of
Bloomsburg. In connection w ith these advan
tages, we have one of the most beautiful resting
places for the dead. The grounds are located
on the north side of Bloomsburg on a high em
inence overlooking the village and the
surrounding country, and the beautiful Sus
quehanna river winding its way through the
valley, striking the eye of the beholder, with a
rich landscspe. On the north western side, is
high ledge of Redshcll, and the waters of
Big Fishingcreek wash its base, as they pass on
to the noble Susquehanna. With its beautiful
evergreens which deck and adorn its grounds,
think it is one of the most beautiful resting
places for the dead .
Having thus briefly given you an outline of
the many advantages arising from such a loca
tion, and to substantiate the assertion I have
n the majority of cases obtained personally,
the ages of a long line of ancient worlhys to
present before you. To prove the longevity of
our citizens, I have classified ihem in four
aa-cs. First class from sixty to seventy years,
we have one hundred and thirteen persons,
whose united ages foot up seven thousand, two
hundred and eighty years. Second class from
seventy to eighty years, we have fifty four
persons, whose united ages are three thousand,
ine hundred and thirty seven years. Third
claBswehave sixteen persons from eighty to
inety years , whose united ages foot up one
thousand three hundred and ninety three years.
fourth class we have two persons, the one
inety-oneand the other ninety-two, whose
ages, are one hundred and eighty-three years,
making the sum total of one hundred and
ighty five persons, within the Borough limits
of Bloomsburg whose united ages foot up twelve
thousand seven hundred and ninety three years.
In populn lion between four and five thousand
inhabitants. It was asserted some nine or ten
"ears ago in the Mon Irose Democrat, that Sua-
hannah county was the banner county, for
the. 'utT'Y of its inhabitants. I em not dis
puting allegauc" If there ia any town in
Pennsylv. .with Ihe sau.o i-.tioof inhabitants
can compete with, the town of Bloomsburg, I
hould be glad to hear from It through the cob
umnsof the press, all of which is respectfully
submitted by your friend and well wisher.

We offer it for sale becausu wo have two fonts
nearly alike and need but one. For inspection
at the COLUMiiUN office.
The laws and ordinances of tho town of
Bloomsburg in pamphlet form are now ready
tor sale at this office at 50 ceuts a copy. This
work was undertaken by us at the suggestio
of 111 any prominent citizens, uud has received
careful attenlicn in its preparation. Every
owner of property, and every citizen who cares
to know the laws under which ho is living
should have a copy. It will probably bo many
years before the work will bo reprinted, and
eveiyone should secure It now, before tb
edition which is not very large, is exhausted
We have been amused by the silly talk of scmo
our enterprising townsmen who say that wo
asked the town to help us out with a bad job
by making an appropriation for somo of these
books, As the Council ordered a number 0
them beforo a single one was ready for sale it
is not likely that this was tho esse. Wo had
no means of compelling the Council to take
what they did not want, but in the exercise of
wise discretion they took a lew. This outlay
will cost tho town tlie enormous sum of two
dollars and a half a year for tho next ten
years, which is furnishing members of Council
with the laws which they are supposed to
enforce at a reasonably low rate. Those who
find fault with the council for such investments
are men whose taxes are very small, and
sometimes not paid at that.
A HINT TO WOimtNOMEN.
The honest workingmen of the coiintry,tnany
f whom have large nnd Increasing families lo
pporl, have been the chief 'iffrcrs from the
great financial pressure under which we have
labored for the last few years. Diminished
wages have not been attended by a correspond
ing diminution in price of every thing which
the worklngman needs. Rents, fuel, food, and
clothing, are cheaper, but these Jo not consti
tute all his neccessiiles. It Is sometimes neccs.
sary for him to employ a lawyer or a physician.
yet the fee rales of physicians, and lawyers
are as high as they were In "flush" times. Yet
cheap medicines are as necesssry as cheap
rents or fuel. Cheap medicines are not neces-
isrlly poor medicines. It must lie obvious t"
every intelligent persons that medicines, com
pounded and put np at wholesale, can be sold
at much lower rates than when retailed from
the doctor's pllUbags. Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and Pleasant Purgative Pel
lets have completely restored persons who had
pent hundreds of dollars in vainly seeking
relief from private practitioners, and all at a
very slight expenditure.
