Tho whole entertainment was a very en joyablo ono and should have had a largo attendance, Speaking of tho appointment of Ex. Superintendent Wolvcrton ot Northumber land county as principal of tho public schools of this Dlaco the Milton Argu saysi Tho above appointment will be balled with much pleasure by the friends of Professor Wolvcrton.

Colley died last Sunday morning at bis home on lower Main street, after an lUness ot only a few days. He was taken lit on Wednesday, with pleurisy, and lingered only until Sunday morning about six o'clock, when he passed away. The deceased was aged about sixty-four years, and leaves a wife and three child ren to mourn bis loss. Services wero held at the honse on Tuesday moraine, and the remains were taken by tho mornlag train on the II. & B. road to Benton, where tho funeral sermon was preached at the Chris tian church by Rev. D. M. Klnter, and the remains Interred In the cemetery there. Tho widow and children have the sympathy of the community. During tho year 1885 the number of jobs ot printing done at tbls office was the larg est within the knowledge ot the present owners, and we may safely say larger than any previous year since tbe establish ment ot the paper, or any of its predeces sors. In 1886 the number ot jobs done was olo hundred greater than 1835, and during the past year, 1887, It was fifty more than 1836. This may not be of any interest to any one but ourselves, but it shows the steady and constant growth of our trade m the faco ot strong competition. This wc attribute to tbe fact that our facil ities fnr doing all kinds of printing are un excelled, and the workmanship and prices aro satisfactory to our patrons. We guar antee satisfaction on all our work. At tbo residence of Mrs. R. A. Snyder, on December 20th, a very pleasant affair took place In tbe marriage of Mr. George W. Kitchen ot Millville and Miss Ada L. Beers, of Mordansville. A number of guests bad been invited, and tbe party as sembled at 9 o'clock a. m. Tbe bride and groom were united in holy wedlock by Rev. A. B. Hooven ot Orangevllle. After the congratulations had been extended, re freshments were served up in good style, and all partook of them with relish. A pleasant exchange ot social greeting fol lowed, and the happy couple started on a short trip, bearing with them tho best wishes of all present. A number of val uable preseuts were given by the friends, accompanied by their unanimous wish that the future of the new couple might be one of unbounded success and happiness. A Gdxst. Mr. J. K. Lockard has submitted plans to mechanics for the construction of his new brick building on corner of Main and Centra street. Work will bo commeuced about April 1st. The main part of ihe old frame building has been purchased by Mr. Clark and will be moved across tbe street. Tho "new building will be a threo story brick. Tbe front will be of different archi tecture from any ot our present buildings. The first story front will have galvanized Iron columns. The second and third story fronts will be heavily coped with brown stone. Mr. Lockard has some thought of of finishing the second story into rooms suitable for small families, who wish to board at, hotels and the prefer private rooms. He has had tcveral applications for such rooms, and will determine as the building progresses, by the applications received. The building will be 99 feet wide and 80 feet deep. Tbe new year was ushered In as usual last Saturday nlgbt by the ringing of church bells, tooting of horns, etc Watch meetings were held in several of the churches. The noise on the streets was not as loud as usual, on account of tbe rain that fell all night and continued all day Sunday, taking away nearly all tbe snow that had fallen Saturday. The water overflowed the pavements and in some places was more than an Inch in depth, causing very sloppy walking and prevent ing many from attending church during the day. Sunday night It began to glow colder and continued to do so, until by noon Monday It was exceedingly cold. A strong wind blew all Monday afternoon, making it much colder. Quito a cumber took advantage of tho snow still on tbe ground to go slelgh-rldlng Monday, but tbe snow had been nearly all takeu away by tbo stead) rain, and the sleighing was rather poor, except in places where tbo ground was covered with ice, where sleighs flipped along smoothly. The cold weath er, too, was rather sharp, for pleasant Blelehing. In town, the banks and post office wero closed, but nearly all tbe busi ness places were open all day long. Yery few New Year calls were made. This cus tom, however, has not been generally ob served on previous years. In tbe evening the Welsh Prize Singers gave an entertain, ment In tho Opera House, which was uot largely attended. There was yery little drunkonness in town either on New Year's eve or on Monday. A Marrow Escape. Monday morning small boys were coast ing on Centre street above Main. Chris, a young son of Chas. E. Rlece, got on his sled at the top of the bill. Lying flat upon tbe sled be began the descent. A gentle man and lady were coming up Main street with horse and buggy, driving leisurely. Tbe sled coming with such rapidity could not bo stopped, and darted under the horse Tbo horse began jumplug and kicking, and stepped closely bcsldo the boy completely demolishing the sled. The front wheel of the wagon ran over the boy, wben be was taken out between the wheels, with a few bruises. It was a miraculous escape, and should be a lesson to parents, to keep their children off the bills leading across our streets. Tbe officers ot tbe town should see that our ordinances are enforced.

On the cast of us, and close by, the ridge rises abruptly and forms an almost perpen dicular ledge ot rocks for some distance, then it Is broken Into rugged points by deep ravines that cut through It. Down ono of theso a, llttlo -.stream dashes and supplies a tank, out 'gfcsvh leb, the "Iron II orse" Is watered e'vefday. The R R.

He had been In falling health for some time, and his death was not unexpected. He was born In this county April 1, 1840. At tbo age ot ten years, he commenced driving a team on the canal during tbo summer months and In winter btrcd out his services as best bo could, sometimes on tbe repairs ot tbe canal, sometimes In the family of some prominent citizen. At tho age of fifteen he filled tho position of wclgbmastcr on tbe canal at Beach Haven. In 1858 be was appointed chief clerk In the Attorney General's office at llarrlsburg, whero he remained until Mr. Buckalcw's appointment as Minister Resident at Quito, Ecuador, whom be accompanied In the capacity of private secretary. During bis stay In that country he mastered the Span. Ish language, became familiar with the geography and topography ot the country, the manners and habits of tbo people to surprising degree, as manifested In his correspondence with Eastern magazines over the signature ot "Quicn babe" (who knows.) On his return from Spain ho taught school one winter, and then entered the of fice of E H. Little, Esq., to study tho leual profession. In 1861, when the war commenced, he was mustered into Company A, 6th P. R. Y. C , (the Iron Guards) and was elected Bergcant. He afterward enlisted as a pri vate In the three years service, and waff mustered Into Battery F, First Pennsyl vania Light Artillery, then commanded by Captain Matthews, and afterward by Col. Rlckctts. In tbls organization be soon be came a Sergeant. The battery was at first attached to the Reserve Corps at Tenally. town, but soon after was detatcbed and ordered to Bank's command atDarnestown, Maryland. Here a section of Parrolt guns was added to the. battery, and immediately after it was ordered to Wllllamsport, Mary- land. Captain Matthews being short of officers, applied to Governor Curlin for an order for election to fill the vacancy, which was made. Captain Brockway was unani mously elected, and at once took 'command of the section. He made himself a high reputation as a brave officer. Col. Bryan's official report of Hull Run says: "Lieut. Brockway, with the other offi cers captured, was marched on foot to the Rapldan River, and from thence was con. veyed to Llbby Prison, as one of Pope's felons, where he remained until exchanged, lie was a prisoner when Antletam was fought, and it was the only engagement ot the war he missed In which his Battery participated. At Fredericksburg it held an important position, covering tbo lower pontoon bridge, and was subject to heavy fire." The Battery participated In all the other battles of the Campaign, and distinguished Itself at Bpottsylvanla. North Anna River, the Tolopolomy, Cold Harbor, and the var ious fights In front of Petersburg. Boon after reaching Petersburg Capt. Brockway was appointed Assistant Chief of Artillery to Gen. Uazzard, then on Gen, Hancock's Staff as Chief ot Artillery ot the Second Corps. This position he held until after tbe Mine explosion, when he was attacked with typhoid fever,broughton by over exertion, and was first granted a leavo of absence, and then sent to tbe Uos. pital at Annapolis. His health continuing feeble be felt com polled to resign after threo years and near, ly eight months continuous service. Sub sequently, Gov. Curtin commissioned blm Captain of bis old Battery. For gallant and meritorious conduct at Bull Run, be was also breveted Captain. After tbe close ot the war be finished his studies, and was admitted to tbe bar where he developed marked ability. In 1870 ho was tho Democratic nominee for Congress in this district, then Btrongly Republican, and was defeated by UIyss3s Mercer by only 124 votes. Ho represented this county In the State Legislature in 1371-2-3. Ia 1807 he became associated with Col. Freeze in publishing Tub Columbian, and subsequently became sol owner. In Sep. tember 1874 be formed a law partnership with Geo. E Elwell, and in October 1875 they purchased The Columbian and con ducted It for years.

Prof. Neff, the first Bpcakcr, introduced the subject of "Heading," which undorllcs everything. "In teaching reading you aro teaching every subject. Reading aloud Is no test as to whether you bnve the thought It Is not necessary to give it in tho Ian guage of tho book. It pupils have thought they will give proper gesture. Therefore, ventures need not be taught." After singing, Mr. Curry gave a very in teresting and instructive talk on tbe sub ject of "History." Mr. W. C.

The Pro fessor was followed by Dr. Wlnshlp, who showed bow Important it is that the teach, er should understand that upon which he operates. Adjourned to Wednesday a. m. WEDNESDAY 31I.BN1NO. After the usual opening exercises, Prof. Neff continued the subject of "Beading." "If tbe pupils are able to get the thought, good oral impression will follow as a cause from an effect. The whole responsibility ot starting the pupils right, rests on the pri mary teacher; for if started correctly noth ing afterward can spoil tbe child. Reading is the foundation upon which all other branches rest. Mistakes will have to bo passed as correcting takes the child's mind from" the thought Teachers should not teach tbe pronunciation they do not uso themselves. Much ot the trouble Is caused by going to fast Reading Is all done In the mind pupils should not read orally until they can do so without thinking of tbe words; if the words are thought of, the thought will be lost. Singing. "Twilight Is Stealing." Supt. W. S. Monroe then took up the subjtct of Language. "Too often children not understanding the thought of the prob lem lose It. Cblldrcn.dcligbt In tbo power of expressing themselves. --Teachers should be good story-tellers. Teach tbe children to paragraph without knowing It. Do not allow carelessness take Interesting sub jects. Teacher should keep scrap book and save everything wblch would answer for a language lesson. Books ot tables bavo an excellent effect take something Instructive as well as Interesting, Avoid use of text books. Keep a list of common errors an'1 impress them at tbe proper time. When children are too young to write, cul tivate oral expression language should be begun very early." Dr. Wlnshlp then spoke on School Disci pllnc "An element of weakness In disci pline when you wish to hold attention Is, you must get your pupils closo to you when you can not command attention at a dis tance. To scold Is an clement of weakness the voice scolds, not tbe words. Tbe teacher needs elocutionary training tn the highest degree. A teacher needs a mild, Arm and penetrating voice. A teacher ought always to smile a genutno smile, not a sickly, sentimental or a grim smile. To be a successful elocutionist, the whole face must vibrato with feeling. Thero is as much force in the glow ot the forehead as In the smile. It requires more work to bold llttlo children to tbelr work than to bold older children." Mr, A. M. Freas read a paper nn Civil Government He says "tho subject is very iiracllcal and yet not known by tbe masses, ilcn aro being elected to Congress who are Ignorant ot tbe Nation's wants. Tho place to teach Civil Government Is In the com mon schools, not In college; for lu tbe com. uion schools the masses can be reached. Tho subject should first be taken up. as a whole and the pupil be taught to got the why and wherefore. Civil Government should bo made a requisite, and put on an equal with the other branches."

Composition writing ;alds greatly to cultivate tbe mind Teachers should give necessary Information on the subject, Prof. Frye continued the subject, of Geography. No time on bo set as to when a child should study tho globe. It depends upon tho child's mind, You should teach tbe globe before the continent. Dr. Waller, tbe next speaker, talked on advanced reading. Reading, like talking, consists in tbo oral expression of thought. A correct utterance is not the object ot reading.

Kt. wanamaker's. PfliLADiLr hia, Monday, Jan. s, lsi A New Year's Letter from John Wanamaker to his friends everywhere : We mark 1887 with a star in the history of our business. The bright and good old year fades out, but not so its experi ences and encouragements. Ten thousand thanks to those who helped to crowd the year with gratifying incident. Accept our most hearty good wishes and cordial congratula tions. The impetus given by the great current of events dashing through last year carries us for ward to attempt larger things for the new year. 1888 shall be indeed a leap year : better service and useful ness in every direction. In this lightning age we can not rest on past achievement or crawl laggard-like along. Not even for one day shall tho store go into winter quarters after its busy season, but with WanAmaker's. to-morrow, the first full business day of the new year, we shall open the new campaign. Circumstances combine to help us do some fine things for our friends from the beginning of the new year. We haven't more than a single sentence to say about great sales. We are making them every day. That's what the store is for. We always have lots of goods that are mark ed down. A daily drum-beat calls up all the old soldiers of goods and gives them a double-quick step toward the door. So, then, note the fact that, no matter what the reason, there can always be found here lots and lots of good things as cheap and often cheaper, than else where reduced from day to day because they must be closed out. We cannot wait for a certain month to sell down, but contin ually watch, like the lookout on the ship. We seek the open channel of quickest progress and steer clear of all that stops our way. Now then let us strike the key-note of the new year. With might and main we grasp the ropes and, as we haul, ring out loud and long "The newest goods" ' "The freshest goods" "The choicest goods" , "The very best of very best" We crowd ourselves to open the new thtnes. Your money shall take fresh goods at no greater cost than might otherwise go into old, hammered-down stock. Thus we hope to brighten our store, increase the activity of our stock, and greaten our trade. This is our way of starting the new year. If you like it when you see what we are do ing say so to your friends. John Wanamaker, Chestnut, Thirteenth and Market streets, miu iu7-nau square LOCAL NOTICES. RO lt.mn.nt. rf r.a.1Ia. PI.IK. Til.
