LANCASTER DAILY INTELLlGENCEll.THimSDAY. JANUARY 8, 1880.
THE CLUBS OF LANCASTER.
Sonic of the Phases or Our Secial Devclop Devclep
raents. Notwithstanding the increasing popula
tion of Lancaster and its rapid advance
ment in all the refinements of modem
society, it lias thus far lceu singularly free
from that sort of club life which in se many
cities of greater or less importance exer
cises a demoralizing social inilu2nce, often
tending te the ruin of individual members
and frequently going far te break up
family life or entirely change that domes
tic order which experience has proved te
be the best for the general purposes of
rightly organized society. Nevertheless,
the elegance, hospitality and general high
tone which have always characterized
society in this city are steadily maintained
generation after generation and never
were mere ma:kcd than at present. The
passing season has witnessed some out
growths of this social development which
are worthy of special notice, no less be
cause of their intrinsic excellence than
because of some enduring qualities which
premise te make them permanent features
of Lancaster polite society.
The Heek Cluus.
Fer a number of years a party of ladies
and gentlemen of congenial literary tastes,
residing at a convenient distance for the
interchange of periodicals, fcc, have had
a Itouudaheut " club, which subscribes
for a number of the standard English,
French and American publications ( about
as many as there are members) and passes
them around from one member te the
ether, in an order determined at the begin
ning of the year, slight lines being imposed
for any detention ever a specified time and
members desiring them for second reading
being allowed this privilege after they have
made the complete circuit. Occasionally a
new book is bought and passed around iu
the same way and at the close of the year
the yearly volumes of unbound periodicals
and the books are sold te the highest bid
ders in the club. This arrangement secures
te each member the use of a large number
of periodicals at the priec of a single one
and has been found te work admirably in
all its details. The secretary of the club
leccivcs all the publications, covers them
with stout pajier, encloses the rules and or
der of the circuit and delivers each respec
tively te its starting place.
The success of the ''Itouudaheut" and
its enlarging membership led te the forma
tion of several ethers en its pattern, and
the " West End Revolver" and another
down town club of the same kind are well
established and iu successful operation. The
three aggregate a membership of ever lifty
TIhj Thursday Club.
This is a social organization of nearly
lifty members, mostly unmarried people,
which meets successively at the residences
of its members, en the Thursday evenings
of alternate weeks, and has for its object
the amusement and diversion of its mem
bers and of invited guests at special enter
tainments. Its dill'erent. evenings are oc
cupied with a variety of amusements such
as dancing, phantom parties, charades,
illustrated ballads, private theatricals, mii
sicalcs and ether diversions of the highest
order of reliued and intelligent social
amusements. Early hours and moderate
entertainments are some of the features of
the club which have done much te make it
success this winter and give premise of its
The Conking Club.
A dozen young ladies of commendable
domestic ambition and household accom
plishments compose the " (Je-iking Club,"
ane every E-aumiay aiteruoeu they give a i
luncheon, in courses, at the residence of ,
some one of the members. Each member
contributes one dish, exclusively pre-
FKANKLIN AND MARSHALL.
Opening or the Winter Term This Morning.
At ten o'clock this morning the winter
or middle term of the institutions at
Franklin and Marshall college was form
ally opened. After the usual chapel ser
vices, consisting of the singing of a hymn,
the reading of the scriptures and prayer,
led by Rev. Dr. T. G. Apple, president of
the college, Rev. E. V. Gerhart, D. D., of
the theological seminary, delivered the
opening address en "The Conflict Between
Reason and Faith."
Dr. Gerhart said that a prominent char
acteristic of our progressive age is the con
flict between Reason and Faith. Faithful
Christians stand aghast at the blasphemies
of spiritual things indulged in by the ma
lignant enemies of Christianity. The argu
ments of Christians are net and cannot be
en a plane with these of their rationalistic
enemies. Materialism uses reason and logic,
but the arguments el Christianity are
above and beyond reason and logic. The
strongholds of the Christian's reasoning
have been mere than historical and geog
raphical strongholds. The victories of
Christianity have always been wen by a
power that is in and of itself. Christ, the
author of Christianity, from His own ful
ness continually imparts geed te the
world, and gives strength te His champions
te upheld the geed. Paul, as Saul of Tarsus,
persecuted the church of Christ, but when
the Sen was revealed in his heart, his
word and works were changed. Peter, the
first great preacher of the gospel, who at
Pentecost converted thousands te the
Christian faith, had at that time no true
insight into the gospel ; net until he saw
the wonderful vision at Jeppa did he knew
that the middle wall of partition
between the Old and the New
had been broken down. Christ him
self said: "Ye shall bear wit-
witness because ye have been trtth jfe
from the beginning." By nature men are
receptive te the truth of the gospel. The
world has denied, however, the truths and
traditions of the Christian faith. The
hatred of scribes and Pharisees
te Jesus of Nazareth has been seen
in ether men in the Christian
era. The sacred writings have been
committed te the flames as abominable,
and men who-have held te the truth have
paid the sacrifice of their lives iu heathen
amphitheatres,tlie prey of wild beasts, and
en the rack of torture. Hut iu Christian
countries the genius of the gospel has been
softening the temper of infidels, of hostile
kings and princes. The predominant at
titude of men te the gospel in the present
age is that of skepticism. Skeptics, how
ever, aic indebted te Christianity for all
the depths of their claimed insight into
things that are geed. Naturalism, espe
cially mateiialistic naturalism, blots out
the entire spiritual realm. The whole an
tagonism of the modern world te the holy
scriptures reveals the ignorance of man's
wisdom, and the impotence of mau's
strength. Te such as have spiritual per
ception the word of the Lord is being ful
filled every hour, net by might but by the
spirit of the Lord. Every epoch and
every event testifies unmistakably that
the I!ib!c has been shining into
the darkness by the power of its own light.
The Bible has been fructifying genius, and
aiding learning ; it has been attracting all
things by its central truth and has been
lighting all things by its holy rays. The
Bible has been te the church through the
ages a well-spring of knowledge, but it
still remains full and unfathomed.
Ne Apology gives strength te the
Werd ; the "Werd gives strength te all
Apologies. The apologist can only aim
legitimately at men and make effort te cor
rect their follies. Man has no strength te

Second district, consisting of Chester,
Delaware and Lancaster counties, Repre

of Henry C. Snewdcn, of Delaware, and

that the appointment for this district will
go te Lancaster. "
It will be remembered that some weeks
age it was announced that Mr. Smith was
urging the appointment of Frank P. Le

politicians all agog te knew who " this
Lefever'' was ; and they discovered that he
hed recently come te town from Oxford,

man of vaguely Republican antecedents.
Mr. Smith, in explanation te the benified
politics mongers, said he didn't knew it :
Lefever had been recommended te him
highly, and, being the only candidate, he
had endorsed him ; of course it would net
de te recommend any ether than a straight
Republican, and se Lefever withdrew.
Being largely indebted te Dr. Compten
for his narrow escape from a fatal political
mistake, Mr. Smith may, in his gratitude,
have fallen upon the doctor's friend, Jee
