enlarged, and refitted in handsome style, are

yet within a few minutes' walk of the termini
of all the railroads, the principal churches,
the new City Hall and the buildings of the

Faculty—one of the largest to be found in any
school in the United States—numbers upwards
of twenty teachers, selected with special ref
erence to their experience and qualifications
for their work. The methods of teaching are
thorough, and intended to develop the mental
and moral powers of the pupil. The total
charges for boarding, light, furnished and
carpeted room, fuel, church sitting, ten pieces
washing each 'week, tuition in the full English
course and Latin, are less than three hundred
dollars a year. Better than all else is
. the
moral tones pervading the school.

TALL Cons.—We clip the following
notice of tall corn from a recent number of the

BIG CORN.-Mr. Jas. McElroy, of Barree
Forge, Pennsylvania, having seen a notice in

this note "Tell the editor of the PEOPLE'S
JOUGNAL that he need not brag on his lowa
corn, for I have corn that is 12 feet and 3
inches high. If he doesn't believe it, tell him
to come down some evening and measure it,

"DUTCU JAKE."—In our isaue of last
week, in a local item entitled, "Almost a Sui
cide, or what 'Dutch Jake' did," we gave a lu
dicious discription of an affair in West Hun
tingdon. Since then a friend of ours, as well
as of the party in question, informs us that
we did Jake great injustice, and that Jake is
a good, honest, sober and industrious citizen.
We are heartily glad to hear this and take all
back, we said, a thousand times. We never
desire to do any one injustice, and when we
are apprised that we have done so; we stand
ready to make the anzende honorable, square.

WILL THEY no IT ?—The advent of the first
train of cars into Bedford, should be a matter
of sufficient moment to the people of that good,
borough to warrant the most extravagant re

sion, the burial of the body of an old coach,
speeches, etc. Bloody Run will furnish the

After doing full justice to the good things
which tempt the appetite, the young people
indulged in a variety of out-door sports, after
which the company dispersed as they have

CROQUET Edit Or :-3ly
friend, did you ever attend a Pic-nic—a Cro
quet Pic nit,? No 1 Ali well, t'ou'r unfortunate 1
My advice is to get one up - without delay.
You can't play Croquet? Dear, dear, that is
bad; Well then, learn at once and that you
may have no difficulty in the managemen4 of
your Pic-nid, afterwards, I'll tell you about
ours, only prefacing the relation with the
statement that 1 fear you'll be unable to find
any place else so pleasant as Shade. Gap, 'or
other folks so agreeable and hospitable as
those we visited.
Yesterday morning, about nine o'clock, a
party of ladies and gentlemen, consisting of
members of the "Excelsior". and "Amateur"
Croquet Clubs of out town, left in carriages,
fir Shade Gap, where, after a ',leasing ride of
eight miles, we arrived at log o'clock, and
alighted at the house of the Misses Neely.
After resting awhile we repaired to the
grounds of the Presbyterian Church. There
we were joined by a select number of the eith
zens of the town and vicinity, and here a rich
collation, prepared for the occasion, was dis
After the edibles were disposed of, the
grounds were measured and prepared for the
Croquet playing, which amusement was in
dulged in for two or - three hours. The play
ing was good and very eutertaing and the ex
ercise prepared us to relish and enjoy the
superb repast of which we partook in the
dining haft of the Milnwood Academy, and
which was preAded over by the accomplished
lady of the Rev. Kuhn, Pastor of the Presby
terian church there.
Supper over, the company adjourned to the
parlors, where conversation and music engag
ed them for a time, brief; but delightful.
Without detracting from the merits of other
performers, I think I should be guilty of in
justice to Miss Ella Minnick, and fail to es•
press the grateful sense of the company, were
I to neglect special reference to her musical
ities, which, beyond doubt render her pe
culiarly fitted for the place she fills as Musical
thstractor of the Academy.
In the evening the party took a promenade
through town and then dispersed. Those
from Burnt Cabins reached home between
eight and nine o'clock, feeling that the day
was indellibly recorded on the tablets of their
memories, as one of the most delightful in all
their experience of happy times.
Burnt Cabins, Pa., July 27th, 1871.
LITERARY NOTICES.—Among the many
candidates for praise, in the literary and a,
tistic world, is Tits PRESS, an illustrated jour
nal, published by Borton & Leonard, Chicago,
which is not second to the Aldine and in some
respects it is superior. We like Its "Dante's
Francesca" better while the typography is
far superior. It is the west sending greet
ing to the east and she has done nobly. It is
published at 50 cents per year. All letters
should be addressed to The Press, 108 and 110

NEW PIIIILICATION.—Dr. • liitchcock's
new and complete Analysis of the Holy Bible.
Published by A. J. Johnson. This interesting
volume makes the Bible its own interpreter,
giving the scripture that treats directly on
each subject arranged under an appropriate
title, being thoroughly indexed, you can as
readily find all the Bible says upon each sub
ject as you could find a single text in our com
mon Bible. -
As an index to whatever the Bible contains
or teaches on any subject, it is invaluable.
Each chapter or section being a distinct and
separate subject. It cannot fail of creating an
interest in Bible reading in every family that
is fortunate enough to obtain a copy. To the
minister it will often throw more light upon
his chosen topic than a whole days' search
could secure. It has also Cruden's complete
concordance pronouncing and interpreting
dictionaries, a dictionary of Religious denomi
nations, a history of the Bible, family record,
maps, engraving, etc., making it a treasure of
inestimable value, We append the folloWing
Rev. M. W. Jacobus, D. D., Professors of
Biblical Literature and Theology, Allegheny
City, Pa., says Talbot's Analysis was good,
. West made it better and Dr. Hitchcock, in this
fine volume has made it best. Nothing in this
way is left to be desired. It will be a treasure
to any household.
From Rev. Geo. F. Wisnell, D. D., Pastor of
Green hill Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia,
Pa.: •'Any book that facilitates and incites to
the study and critical knowledge of the Holy
Scriptures is a positive good in the world.—
Hitchcock's Analysis is such a book. I shall
count it a good work if in any way I can pro
mote the circulation of such a valuable book
among the families of our land."
Rev. Geo. D. Boarman, D. D., Pastor of
First Baptist Church, Philadelphia, says in his
concluding remarks "I counsel every one,
who wishes to use the Bible most advantage
ously, to purchase this volume."
Rev. C. F. Shafer, Evangelical Lutheran,
Philadelphia, says "The interest of our holy
religion will be greatly premoted by an exten
sive circulation of this precious book."
Having examined, with some care, Prof.
Hitchcock's Analysis of the Bible, I have no
hesitation in recommending it as a valuable
aid to the study of the Sacred Scriptures.—
Those who purchase and peruse it will, I think,
never regret the money and time thus expend,
Pastor Presbyterian Church,
llontingdon, Pa.
July 3r; 1811.
The above recommendation of llitchcock's
Analysis of the Bible I heartily 'endorse, and
am free to say that the exrnse incurred by
the purchase u - ill never be regretted.
Pastor of Reformed Lutheran Church,
Huntingdon, Pa.
To nil who wish, with the least — labor and
with the greatest possible dispatch, to know
all the scriptures say on any subject treated
by them, I recommend Hitchcock's Analysis
of the Bible as pre-eminently the book they
