On July 31st, 1888, he resigned
from the Bench after a service of
nearly twenty six years.
Thirteen years ago todav, Oct

illness of nearly eight years.
Though more than twenty years
have passed since he left the Bench,
the memory of his admirable quali
ties as a jurist and as a man, are
still green and it is a source of
much gratification to his living re
lativesto hear him still so frequent
ly mentioned 111 terms of admira

case there is a contradiction of
Shakespeare's statement that
"The evil that men do lives after
The good is oft interred with
their bones."

Resolved, That we the members
of the Ministerium of Bloomsburg
and vicinity, beg leave to commend
the action of the association in clos
ing some disreputable exhibitions,
and we would respectfully suggest
that at all future annual exhibitions

The nine hundred thousandth
patent from the United States pat
ent office was issued Saturday, and
to it was attached the name of Pat
ent Commissioner Moore. The
patent was an improvement on
traveling stairs, such as are used in
hotels and other large buildings,
and while Mr. Moore ordinarily
attaches his last name with his in
itials, he signalized the attainment
of the nine hundred thousandth by
using his full name of Edward
Bruce Moore.
5&In the early history of the nation
the law required that patents
should be signed by the president
and as the first one was issued dur
ing the first presidential adminis
tration, it was signed by President
Washington. It covered a device
for making pearl ashes, and the
document itself is said to be now
owned by a Chicago collector.
Mr. Moore estimates that the
one millionth patent will be reach
ed in the year 191 1. As going to
show the inventive tendency of the
American mind as compared with
other countries, Mr. Moore calls
attention to the fact that notwith
standing this is among the newest
nations, and is one among many,
the total of patents issued by the
United States is not very far below
the total for all other countries for
all time. The issuance of foreign
patents up to the date of the last
report was 1,135,000 or only 235,
000 in excess of the total for this

Grange Inaugurating Campaign of Educa
tion. Tf.vtmrt from an address bv ex-
Governor Bachelder, delivered be
fore the National Grange: "At
the last annual meeting you en
dorsed the recommendation made
iu my address that the Grange in
augurate a campaign of education,
having for its object the enactment
of legislation by Congress provid
ing for a federal appropriation of
$50,000,000, to be divided into five
annual appropriations of $10,000,
000 each, to be expended for the
improvement of the public high
ways. These recommendations not
only received your endorsement,
but you instructed your legislative
committee to take the necessary
steps to inaugurate such a cam
paign. Since the last meeting,
your executive and the legislative
committee have given close atten
tion to the work of preparing for
this campaign, and we are confident
that the ;ime has now arrived when
the movement should be prosecut
ed vigorously, with the view of se
curing the necesary legislation at
the present session of Congress, if
possible. This your legislative
committee has made every prepar
ation to do, and I recommend that
you take such action before you
adjourn as will show that it has
the united support of the order in
this important matter. The de
mauds of the Grange are both rea
sonable and just, and we may ex
pect prompt action on the part of
Congress if members of the order
generally impress their senators and
representatives with the fact that
they are in earnest. The roads of
the United States have too long
been a reproach and byword among
the nations. The Grange is deter
mined that this must be elided , and
we should not cease in our efforts
until the federal, state and munici
pal governments are cooperating in
the work of making the American
roads the finest in the world.
It is said that the purchasers of

Queer Way of Joking.
There have been .several reports
of alleged attempts by burglars to
enter nouses in town. Some of
the cases have proved to be only

funny "jokes", it will not be so ex
quisitely amusing.
