With the Claim of Applicant Under
the Dependent Pension Act.
There are dozen pension agents in this
city, and their time Is almost wholly taken
up In attending te business brought them
by the enactment of the dependent pension
The applicants for government bounty
are very numerous, hundreds already hav

law gives any soldier a pension who makes
an affidavit that he Is unable te de manuel
Whlle It may net hnve been Intended by
Congress that business men and these re.
tired from' business with a competency
were te be granted the benefit of the
government's bounty, tinder the law, as It
reads, nothing can prevent such going en
the government pension rolls if the neces
sary affidavits are made that they are un
able te .perform work.
.Frem three te five hundred applications
of residents of this city and county have
already been tiled for pension under the
new law, and new applications are being
Among them are some very deserving
persons, undoubtedly entltled te be sup

I ethers of the classed nbove mentioned who
were among the first te call upon the city
pension agents some getting there before
1 the necessary blanks were received, ready
te swear te the facts necessary te put them
I upon the government pay roll. Seme

they can consistently take the oath because
I they never did that kind of work.
Many soldiers in fair circumstances, who
never had any notion of applying for a
pousien, are being urged te de se, net se
much by the ponslen agents of the city as
by these of Washington. These agents
have the name and postefflco oddress of

can be put en the pension rolls.
The men who were In the army from 1801
te 1865 as a rule were opposed te this late
pension law. They took the position that
men who were disabled should be pen

i A Colored Burglar In Chased By a Police
A mau, who is supposed te have been a
burglar, was frightened away from the resi
dence of A. J. Steinman, who llves at East
Orange and Shlppen streeU. About S
o'clock Officer King was making his
rounds and as he passed up Sbippeu street
he saw a mau jump te the street out of the
wash heuse window in the rear of tbe

posed thief, who was a colored man, as he
saw by the electrie light as be ran around
the corner into Orange streeband down into
the adjoining yard of Jitmes Shand. He
made his escape ever the back fence, which
he broke down in getting ever it. The
officer blew his whistle and uwakened the
family, but an examination of the premises
showed that nothing had been stelen. It
is quite likely that the thief was frightened
off tee early in his game. He doubtless
beard the officer coming up Shlppen street,
and thought it was koide ene coming up
the yard of the heuse, as etherwise be
would have escaped into the yard Instead
of into the Btrcet. Officer King lest sight

A JACK IN HIS THROAT.
A Bey Swallows a Six Pronged Piece of
Harry Moere,a six-year-old colored boy,
whose home is en Church street, near the
Eastern market beuse, made a narrow
escape from choking te death last night.
He was playing with a number of iron
"jacks," such as children use. They are
made of iron with six piengs and hre
three-quarters of an inch across. He placed
ene of the Jacks in his mouth and' another
boy frightened him. The jack went down
his threat and ledged in his gullet, four
inches frejn the top. All efforts of the boy
te get the ibing up or down were fruitless
and Br. Frank Muhlenberg was sent for.
He succeeded In getting the Jack out after
it had been in the boy's threat for ever two
hours. Hed It remained there it might
have caused the little fellow's death. The
physician Bays that he has taken many
curious articles frem'the threats of poeplo,
Including fish bones, pennies, Ac., but that
of last night was far ahead of anything else

commissioners' office en Wednesday, and
tbose who called at the office wero treated,
Tbe lomenado was made in a tin bucket.
A number of tbose who drank of

supposition is that the lemon ate some tin
from the bucket, producing a mineral
poison. Of the dozen who drunk this lemon
ade only a few escaped illness and the
symptoms wero such as physicians say
would be produced by a mineral poiseu.
Fortunately none were made very ill and in
a. tow hours all recovered from the offecls.

ProecedlUKs of Wednesday' Session In
Wednesday morning's session of the
Teachers' association was devoted te
memorial addrosses ou the life and ser
vices of the late Suporintendent of Public
Instruction Dr. E. E. Higbee. The lead
tug addrefs, delivered by his successor In
efilcv, Hen. Dr." J. Waller, gave the main
facts of his life, and eulegised his virtues.
Dr. lllgbee was born in Vermont in 1830.
He graduated at the university of ills native
state In 1819. Asa youth he oxcclied in ail
athlctle sports; In Ills mature years as a
scholar he was second te nene who have
ever occupied the position of state super
intendent lu any commonwealth In this
union. After many years of conscientious
and successful work as a jmster and as a
teacher, in 1881 he was appointed superin
tendent of public Instruction. Frem that
tlme the teachers of Pennsylvania honored
him as thelr educational head, as k scholar
and as a man. Superintendent Burrowes
shaped the school system of the state;
Superintendent Wickcrsham, with his
?reat executive ability, completed It:
)r. Illgboe, with his enthusiasm, aroused
the poeplo and made possible the
great progress of the pant nlne years.
Largely through his influence, handsome,
new school houses have been built, the
school appropriation Increased, the mini
mum scnoei lerm loiiRiiienoo, ami me
character of the Instruction greatly Im
proved, He also did much te allay tbe
antagonism se long existing between tbe
colleges and the Nermal schools.
Brief remarks were made by Superin
tendent Heuc.k, Dr. Brooks, Superintend
ent Stewart, Dr. Phillips, Dr. Lyte, Prof.
Deltrlch and Miss Lloyd, and then the
sorvlces wero brought te a fitting close by
a paper read by Dr. HIgbee's warm per
sonal friend and co-laberor, Professer Mc
Caskey, of Lancaster.
The chairman of the Higbee memorial
fund announced that $3,131.45 had been
contributed, and the association appointed
a cemmittee of flve te use the money for
tbe purpese Intended.
At the onening of the afternoon session
Bedford was solectod as the place for the
next meeting, aud then nominations wero
made te fill the offices of the association.
The commltleo en exhtblts reported an
admirable display of all kinds of school
