Mr. R, L. F. Colley died last Sunday
morning at bis home on lower Main street,
after an lUness ot only a few days. He

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

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.

Thero is no part of the valley, that I
know of, that affords 'more diversity of
scenery, or a more beautiful landscape.
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 dashes
and supplies a tank, out 'gfcsvh leb, the
"Iron II orse" Is watered e'vefday. The
R R. Is built along the baser ot tho ridge,
and the waters of our far famed Fishing
creek, now quietly, then spreading Into a
wider space, rlpplo over tbelr rocky bed.

which ascend gently from the bottom lands
until they almost reach the tops of the west

much lamented Silas Mcllenry, of Daniel

part of tbe valley, who have departed this

place, uor akin to these old peoplo yet I re
member them gratefully, tor when I was a
stranger they took mo In; when I was hun
gry they fed mo, and their social and rellg.

my early manhood. Being mostly farmers,

the subject of "Heading," which undorllcs
everything. "In teaching reading you aro

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,

Prof. Welsh, teacher In tho West Chester

Dr. L. B. Kline next read & paper on
"Supplementary Reading." He stated
"that newspapers, journals, etc., should be
taken and used as supplementary reading,
Theso should be secured by eppropitatlon
from School Board, or by contributions
from pupils,
Prof. Neff then gave a class drill, tbe
object ot wblch was to show that a pupil
may be ablo to pronounce all tho words,
even read with a fair degree of fluency, and
yet he losing tho benefit that should be de
rived from every reading lesson. The Pro
fessor was followed by Dr. Wlnshlp, who

operates. Adjourned to Wednesday a. m.
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,

Ignorant ot tbe Nation's wants. Tho place
to teach Civil Government Is In the 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

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
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
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
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
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.

What am 1 to do ? Tho symptoms of
biliousncfs are unhappily but too well
known. They differ In different Individ
uals to some cxient. A bilious man is sel.
ilom a breakfast eater. Too frequently,
alas, be has an excellent appcttto for liquids
but none for solids ot a morning. Ills
tongue will hardly bear Inspection at any
time; If It ia not white and furred, It Is
rough, at all events.
The digestlvo system is wholly out of or
der and dlarrha-a or constipation may be a
symptom or the two may alternate. There
are oltcn hemorrhoids or eveu loss ot
blood. Thero may bo giddiness snd often
headache and acidity or flatulence and
tenderness In tbe stomach. To correct all
