NAVIES' TRACT SOCIETY.
Thirty-Second Anniversary of a Csefel In -stitutlen.
Yesterday the thirty-second anniversary
of the Ladies' Tract society was held in
the Moravian church, there being a geed
attendance. The music for the occasion
was furnished by the choirs of the Jlora Jlera
vian and Reformed churches. After an
anthem by the joint choirs and a quartet,
Keck of Ages," both of which were
finely executed, Rev. Prof. Stahr read a
passage of 'the scripture and Rev. Dr.
Dubbs led in prayer.
The Annual Repert.
Rev. C.B. Shultz then read the following
With a deep sense of gratitude te Al
mighty Ged, our Heaveuly Father, the
members of our society are permitted te
greet one another en this the thirty-second
anniversary of its establishment. It is
with unfeigned thankfulness te the Father
of His people, ai.d with renewed assurance
of our strength in union, that we meet thus
te leek back upeu the departed happy days
of the past and forward into the bright
ones that are yet te be tilled with labor.
The plan of the Ladies' city tract society
is te de geed te all men as we have an op
portunity. We scatter the seed in reliance
upon the help of Ged through Jesus Christ
His Sen, that it shall take root and
bear geed fruit.
During the year new closed we have dis
tributed 9,00 English and 2,200 German
tracts in the out-of-the-way places of our
city, and also in the midst of the throng
This is a total of 11,800. Titles of a
few : ' Mountains of bread," " What
shall I de te be saved?" " Divine grace il
lustrated," etc., etc. Religious papers
donated te us from various churches te
the amount of several hundred, have also
been scattered upon these errands of
incrcy, which the Lord has permitted us te
Five families weic found te be without
the Hely Uililc, and te these, through the
liberality of the Bible society, the precious
word of power unto salvation, through
faith in Jesus, was bi ought.
The distributors have also endeavored
te relieve the bodily necessities in the
course of their visitations. The sick have
been ministered unto. In one case the
tract was the last thing read, and afforded
much comfort te the sufferer in his dying
hour. Poverty and destitution in various
forms have been relieved by the personal
elfe'ts of members of the society. Chil
dren have been led te the Sunday-school.
Many persons were found who were net
in connection with any church and were
induced te attend.
With the exception of a few instances
the tracts have always been thankfully re
ceived, in fact there are many who leek
ferwaid te the visits of the distributors
with anticipations of pleasure aud religi
ous ediiicat ion.
During the past year this society lias
been called te fellow te her last restiug
place a most faithful member. In the
death of Mrs. Jacob Griel the Ladies'
Tract society has lest a devoted friend and
:ui earnest worker, who for many years la
bored with us. The voice that was se fa
iniliat te us is new singing praises with
the "white robed throng that surrounds
the throne " in the church triumphant, re
deemed through the precious bleed of
Jesus. Will net another, with a like en
ergy, and a like spirit of active love te the
pour aud houseless, ceme and labor with
We aie glad te say there has beeu much
real earnest zeal, vigor and energy dis
played in our geed tract cause during the
last. year. We have seen the names of
eight new distributors added te our list of
right noble-hearted, Cnristiau women,
willing te work for Jesus.
The following is an exhibit of the linnii
cial condition of the society :

We earnestly appeal te all who love our
blessed Lord te labor with us iu this glori
ous cause. Their contributions will be a
fragrant sacrifice en His altar, and will
convey an equal blessing te the giver aud
te him te whose necessities they are finally
applied. Especially as we are new leaving
the old year and approaching the thres
hold of the new, we plead for the sympa
thies and prayer of all Ged's people. If
these arc granted us our arms will be
btrcngthencd te renewed lab&r, for we will
have t he assurance that can never fail, that
our Heavenly Father will hear the prayers
of His children and grant them the fulness
of His blessing.
The ladies deaire te return their thanks
te the daily papers for the'r kindness iu
publishing gratuitously notices of their
meetings, and te the several congregations
of this city for having taken up collections
for their benefit during the week of prayer.

was being done. Miss Alice Treycr, of thu

The Ulgu Scheel Excursion.
The excursion of the boys and girls of
the high schools, which left for Chiques en
the 10:15 train Saturday morning, was in
every way enjoyable. The weather was
delightful ; the weeds were iu their best
autumn diets, aud the river was beautiful
as it is always. The day was spent in
rambling ever the hills, gatheriug leaves
and ferns, aud iu strolling along the tow
path between Chiques and Columbia,
nearly all of the party taking the evening
train at Columbia. The sunset en the
river and beyond the river hills is described
as a scene of wondeus beauty. The party
numbered one hundred aud twenty-five or
mere and everybody came home enthu
siastic ever their pleasant trip te the Sus
quehanna. These who have made this trip
before wi h the school missed the familiar
form aud hearty welcome of Professer
Haldcman, who was always glad te see the
boys en their semi annual excursion.
A Werk of Merit.
Visitors te St. Peter's church fair, new
being held in Heist's hall, will notice that
conspicuous among the many beautiful ar
ticles a basket and cress of wax flowers is
particularly attractive. A close examina
tion of the beauty of this basket and cress
will show that they were the work of some
person of taste aud ability. This person is
Miss Martha Rudy, of Lancaster city, who
is an adept in line weik of this kind, and
the samples new an exhibition at the fair
certainly reflect credit upon her accom
plishment. Hearing Again Postponed.
The hearing of the alleged diserderlies
complained against by Nick Geedman, has
been again postponed at the instance of
the prosecutor, who is suffering from chilis
and fc er. There is no truth in the rcpei t
that he suffercsfrein injuries received dur

OCU REGULAR CORRESPONDENCE
The Teaciiera' IusUtnte Personal and Polit
ical Points The Uoreagh ISudget.
A meeting of the teachers' institute was
held between the hours of nine and one
o'clock en Saturday. The opening exer
cises consisted of scriptural readings, sing
ing, etc. Prof. B. G. Ames, under the
head of " Scheel Government, " spoke at
length, taking up first the opening exer
cises of schools, which he thought should
be finished in eue-quartcr of an hour, and
then speaking of the punishment of schol
ars by detention after school hours for mis
behavior or failure in their lessens ; the
manner iu which shell scholars should be
treated while in the school room ; and
filially, their dismissal in au eidcrly way.
The percentage of attendance in the pub
lic schools was never se geed as it is new,
and the percentage in the lower primaries
was never se peer. The percentage of at
tendance of the pupils indicatcsthe influ
ence the teacher has ever her pupils and a
large percentage of attendance denotes the
ability of the teacher te interest the
pupils in their work aud te interest the
parents of the pupils iu such work, The
progress of pupils depends upon the inter
est they take in their work. The teachers
roust bring some influence te bear en their
pupils te compel punctuality, as the pupils
arc new and have been for some time past
very tardy. On Friday morning there
were about 150 pupils tardy in the Cherry
street school buildings.
The idea of teaching reading by class
was then illustrated. The lessen differed
from preceding lessens in being a fable,
which is generally believed te have a lessen
in it. This lessen was picked te pieces and
laid en a shelf for future reference, when
the integral parts were taken up one by
one, put iu place, aud the lessen's teach
ings were transparent. Miss Pfouts, in
criticising the reading of pupils, said that
her pupils used a peculiar inflection in let
ting the voice fall at each comma and at
almost every third word, when as a gener
al thing the voice should net be let fall at
a comma. Miss Welsh thought that
teachers make a very great mistake iu
making a rule that the voice should be
kept up always at a comma, as it leads pu
pils te read very unnaturally. .Miss
Pfoutz continued her drill in drawing en
the beard, illustrating her mode of teach
ing. Prof. Ames believed that Miss Welsh
iu her criticism en reading, aud especially
at the intonation of the voice at a comma,
was exactly right. Miss Pfouts does net
think the real use of the comma is te give
expression te the leading as much as te
enable the reader te take breath, se, she
thinks, no rule could be made about the
tone of voice iu reading or of keeping the
voice up at commas. An object lessen en
parts of the human body with
class by Mr. Harry Zcrgcr : a class
drill in calisthenics by Miss Paine ; and a
rcpeit by a couple of primary teachers en
the spelling of words by their classes then
took place, when Miss Pfouts made a re
port en educational journals, from which
report it was decided that the institute
purchase the following works : New Eng
land Journal $2.50 per annum ; Primary
Teacher at $1 per annum; and
the Chicago Educational Journal at
$2 per annum. Twe conies of each work
will be purchased and the expense te the I
teachers will be $11. Miss Pfouts was ap i
pointed a committee te scud en for these ,
books which will be kept in the library
room. Each teacher will be given an al
lotted time in which te read the books. I
The pregramme for the next iutitute was I
read by Prof. Ames, when the institute i

TROUBLE IN THE SCHOOLS.
Because of the Introduction, of Politics.
The Republican local managers, net
content with thmsting politics into busi
ness and social relations of life, have adopt
ed measures for making the public schools
subserve their party purpose. One of
these measures is te have the educational
officers, superintendents, deputies, teachers
and directors become political stump
orators. The example is set by
Dr. J. P. Wickershain and is fol
lowed by many directors and teach
ers. Anether of their measures is te
have Garfield poles erected in -the public
school playgieunds. Several poles have
been erected in this county right en the
school-ground, aud our pious neighbors,
the Examiner ami Era, are astonished-that
Democrats should make any objection te
have the public schools of the common
wealth thus prostituted te the exigencies of
the Republican party, aud shocked te
learn that some of the poles have been cut
On Wednesday evening last the Garfield
people erected a pole en the grounds of the
public school of which Mr. P. A. Uhrich is
the teacher, iu East Hcmpfield township.
On Thursday morning, when the children
came te school there was great rejoicing
among the Garfield boys, who taunted
their Democratic playmates aud gave
them te understand that the directors were
for Garfield, because some of the members
of thu beard had assisted iu putting up
the pole. Much bad feeling and
some quarreling was thus created
anion the pupils and politi
cal quarreling ensued. Without say
ing a word en one side or the ether, Mr.
Uhrich quietly went te work and at high
neon cut down the pole and cut it up into
three pieces se that it could net be rc
erectcil. He is determined that his school
shall net be degraded into political ma
chine even though thu state superintend
ent may cheese te make the state depart
ment subserve his political interests. We
don't knew whether Mr. Uhrich is a Dem
ocrat or a Republican, but he is deter
mined in keeping politics out of his school
room aud school grounds.
Since the above was written we are
informed that the Garfield men procured
another pole and have erected it imme
diately opposite the school-house but net
n the grounds.
COSJuT Of yUAUTKIt SESSIONS.
October Adjourned Term.
This morning the October term of ad
journed quarter scsieus court began with
f Judge Livingston ou tac bench.
lhc first case attached was that of
cem'th vs. Cathaiiuc Eshlcbrenner, who
was charged with assault aud battery by
Elizabeth Eshlebrcnncr, her daughter-in-law.
The presecutrix stated that en the
7th of July last she aud the defendant get
into a quarrel aud defendant struck her in
the face with a het smoothing iron ; she
also pulled her hair and scratched her face.
The defendant denied having struck the
j presecutrix with the iron, but claimed
1 that the latter began the light and pulled
her hair, Se. 1 he jury rendered a verdict
Cem'th vs. Chiistian L. Brackbill, as
sault and battery. Levi Habcckerwas the
prosecutor. He lives in Warwick town
ship aud he testified that upon one day in
July last he went te the defendant's house
te see a man named Watsen. He was or
dered away by the defendant, w'e hit him
several times while he was in the read.
The defense was that thu prosecutor
came te BrackbilPs house en that day. He
abnsed the masons who were at work and
the defendant ordered him te leave the
ureniises. He took him bv the arm and
I told him te leave aud just tapped him en

A Dis'iiderly Gang.
I The Republican clubs of this city did
I net leek se very much amiss when tnev
' left Lancaster for 3Ianheiinen Saturday
i evening, but when they returned late at
night they were fearfully demoralized.
There may have been, there probably
were, some sober men among them, but en
the whole a mere drunken, disorderly,
noisy gang never yelled through the streets,
and the disturbance was kept up into the
early hours of Suuday meniiug. It is re-
ported, en Republican authority, that the
conduct et many et the men during their
stay in Mauheim was outrageous in
the extreme. They overawed the hotel
and saloon keepers, demanded and
were furnished liquors and beer for which
they refused te pay, threatening te gut
the houses if their demands were refused,
and in ether ways exercised a temporary
reign of terror ever the people of the quiet
country berugh. Their misbehavior dis
gusted Democrats and Republicans alike
aid made votes for Hancock.
Generals McClellan. Sigcl and Sickles,
Senators Il.iyard and Wallace, Speaker Ran

Andrew Wilsen, who had the contract
for the erection of the public school build

en Wednesday last and has net since been
heard from. He was net missed until
Saturday evening, when the workmen en
the new building called for their wages.

$1,100 or $1,200.
