rvs-tor of the Kpio-opal churt b, lal Bun
ilay evening, wa another of th-tso well
prepared, thoughtful ami instructive de
liverances for which he is noU*|. The
text "And devout men carrii-d Stephen to
his burial, ' gnvo rise to many thoughts on
the subject of the ceremonies t-> be observ
ed over tlio body of a deceased |<-rs<j|i
wliirh were original an-1 well ( ORceivi-d.
One of the tlr-l !•-*■'.n* drawn from the
text was that if this first reconh-d instance
of a Christian burial is to bo followed,
none but devout person* should lake (.art
in this Cliri-lian ceremony over llic t*-dy
of one who lis* -ii"-l in the Christian faith
That tho prayers and orations said, and
the hymns sang, over a corpse, are not de
signed to fa* the most im|>rtant part of the
ceremonies, but instead the joyful bote* of
a resurrection held out as the heavy clods
of earth fall upon the coffin lid. Will., ut
this the long funeral procession, the high
bred assemblage, the richly caparisoned
steed* with their n<bling plumes are a
mo kory ; and the tomb, hewn from *<d-d
marble and ornamented with ail that art
can devise, is indeed a ret.ulsive burial
r-lace if its terrors fa- not soften<-<l by this
liojrf-. The entire discourse wa* replete
with deep thought, adorned with elegant
expression, and delivered in the gentle
man'' usual animated style.

A CONORATVLATION.—We had the good
pleasure last week of recording the wed
ding in Harrlskurg, last March, of tha t
handsome young couple, Mr. John L.
Linn to Miss Alice A. Alexander, but be
cause of the crowded condition of our col
umns forboro to mako extended remarks.
Known as the young gentleman is to
everyone as one of the most gallant beaux
Bcllcfonte has ever produced, and as the
partner whom he has selected for life has
been for a long time rccognfacd as a prom
inent belle, and a very sensible young
lady, they cannot but receive the hearty
congratulations of their friends. It is a
union of hearts as well as of hands, and
will result in the utmost liappiness to
them. As they pursue tho 'drama of lifo
together may tho curtain rise on naught
hut joyful scenes. May the freshly blos
somed love bloom on into a fadeless flower
which shall give forth its beauty and
fragrance e'en through eternity !
One of th tiißny natural wonders of wliirh
Centre county ha* a largo proportion is
what is known a* the It lm-Spring, situated
on tins farm of J. Dunlop Bhttgcrl, at thu
source of thu water* of Logan's Branch. It
in larger tlmn tlio fatnouii spring from
wliicli our town derive* It* nuinu, it* ex net
depth, which i* known to hi! grunt, ha*
never been definitely nncertaim-d, nrid its
wutcra fa-cause of tlieir depth, are in hue
the color of tin! ocean—which give* the
spring its name. Thi* water, in however,
of crystal-like purity and very cool. It
i* related that yearn nince a yoke of oxen
attached to a harrow plunged over the
niden of the npring, disappeared within iU
blue depth*, arid no trace* of them have
ever nince been discovered. Thin tale,
though not well authenticated, forum one
of the dogma* of faith which many |mrnoni
entertain in regard to the npring. At one
time the flow of water from it found it
way by a natural channel into Logan's
liranch, but in the course of time large
trim fell across itn outlet, nettled itnclt with
the jaiint downward in the hii|io of two
niden of a triangle, collected the leave* arid
other ilrbri from the npring until at length
an effectual obntruclion to the natural out
let wa* formed. Thin eauned the water
in the spring to rie until it soaked it*
way in varioun direction* through the
limentonn nek which form* it* niden and
went no one known exactly whither.
At all event*, the water flowed under
ground for mile* before it found it* way
into the bed of the creek.
I>uring thin nutnrner the water in L>gan's
liraneli ha* fa-en *o unprecr*]enlodtly low
thai it bit* been found iiii|>*nib! to operate
Maim * Axe Works. and the other manu
fa> turing establishments situated on it*
bank* and deriving their motive power
fri'm thin nource, except for a portion of the
time. The employe* and manager* have
occupied a |*>rtion of their npafe time in
•p>-culation concerning the Illue spring,
and it apparently no disturbed their
thought*, that they finally determined t<-
request of Mr. Shugert th<> privilege of ex.
(•erimenting u|*>n it. Permission Iming
given, trial* were made, whii h have prov
ed entirely successful, in |-erundiiig the
•pririg to again *ink to it* former level and
flow through it* old outlet. The increased
water in the crock ha* alr--ady enabled
Mann Axe \\ oik* to ojmrate more regu
larly. and the spirit* of ail concerned are
correspondingly elevated. The water in
the *pring alternately rim* and fall* a* the
tide in the ocean. A* the reanon for thi*
i* not clearly understood, the pring w ill
probably before long receive further at
tention from cientit. Hut until future
development* are made we will permit it*
blue water* to rct undisturbed in their deep
b*in, merely speculating upon the won
der* which time may reveal.
Afaiul ten o'clock in the morning of a
lovely day in the early part of October we
l'fl the h<*j.iublo boriK! of our fried*!*,
nestled among the Bald Kagle hill*, for a
trip to the Allegbenie*. Nine of u*, large
and *mall, crowded into a long wagon
drawn by two tout borc*. We were a
merry party. Nothing could lie more
charming than our ride. The road that
wound up the mountain'* ide wa* lined
with tree* and underhru*h—before u*
*lretche.| a long vit* of overarching tree*
narrowing with di*tance, while growing in
the cool, shaded place* among the rock*
wa* the graceful waving fern, some a bright
livid green and oilier* huff or creamy white.
Kverything showed ign of drought.
At one place where a limped dream
wa* wont to come bubbling down the
mountain idc, it wa* only a dry lied of
•tones, but farther on we found a little
•pring, that, although not no large a* it
u*ually i, *upplicd u* with a cool, refresh
ing drink. Hut to the right and to the
left of ii*, though *ome distance away, we
aw the tmoke from fire* on tho mountain*.
What a grand view we had from the
top ! Slo|*s after lnpc *eemd to rie till
they almost touched tho *ky—the bright
pine* and evergreen* contrasted lieautifully
with the yellow of the hickory and the dull
color of the oak leaves. Here and there
the overhanging clouds were pictured by
the shadow* that rested upon the face of
the mountain, bringing the sunny {pots out
into brighter relief.
At the top we diverged from the road
into a by-road to what is familiarly known
as "Wolf* hollow." Here we selected a
level, shady place and spread down our
blankets and buffalo robe from the wagon,
the seat* of which served as comfortable
sofa*, while we eagerly gathered around
the large basket of tempting refreshment*
and jug of sweet, rich, fresh cider that we
had taken with u*. After satisfying the
wants of the inner man the gentlemen of
the party went in search of chertnuts, with
the understanding that should they lie suc
cessful, they would call us to the pleasant
task of gathering them. In a little while
they returned, but as others had been ahead
of them they were unsuccessful. So we
turned our faces homeward and were folly
compensated by tho luxuriant beauty scat
tered along the pathway.
Tho quantities of grand pine and fern
tempted us not to go home empty handed.
While the trusty horses jogged leisurely
along, most of u* strolled down the noun
side culling boquefa of the green and
creamy white ferns brightened with the
glowing leave* of tho maple. When we
were tired we returned te the wagon laden
with what we considered treasures, but
wim some of tho gentlemen denominated
What a free, easy, gipsey life wo led
that day. Dusty and hungry wo reached J
homo at tea time ready to partake of the
bountiful repast spread for us, fooling uro

of our picnic upon the Alleghenles.

Hrolhor John D. Inch's life was one of

tentatiously in- discharged tin- duties of a

relieving the sufferings of the dilre*ed by

Over and al>. all these excellent and

true, earnest ami faithful Christian life he

which endeared him aliketofamily, friends,

the recent pension act if a deceased K>ldier
WAS A pensioner At the time of hi* doAth,
Ami At the jime had two children under
sixteen years and left no widow, the chil-
I dren arc entitled to the arrearage* of jam
sjon under the act. If *uch a soldier left a
widow she i* entitled to the arrearage* and
they are not. ]f he wa* not a |<en*ioncr
' at the time of his death, neither the nor
they are entitled to a |a-nsion and arrear-
I age*, even though he may have boon. Hi*
failure to obtain a pension for himself bars
the widow or children. But if before bis
death he lias made application for a {tension,
the widow or children, as the case may be,
are entitled to the pension add arrears if
■ hi* application i* granted. In other words,
the fact of his death nowise affects an ap
plication, but carries with it the right to
enter an application. The Commissioner
says that it is impossible to give a general
j derision which will cover all case* Al
m<t*t every case raises a new and knotty
question as to the construction of statutory
law. Out of this uncertainty there arise*
; much misconception. The claimant's best
plan is to stale his or her case and patiently
await decision, without relying implicitly
upon what may have i>een done in other
case* imperfectly understood.
Y. M. C. A. Doixoa.—On Friday even
ing next, the exercises in connection with
the Young Men's Christian Association
will lie of an unusually interesting and im
porlant character. The officers for the
ensuing year will be chosen, which is of
itself one of the most important exercises
that the Association is ever called upon to
perform. A report of the recent State
Convention will also be submitted by Mr.
J. Harris Orbiron, and it is expected that
many useful hint* will be gathered from it.
In consideration of these important events,

Kns. DEMOCRAT— Dmr Sit .- I notice by
announcement in your excellent paper that
Dr. Fowler, of the Chittmn Jifwrafs, is to
lecture In this place on the evening of the
2t'th Inst. It is my good fortune to have
heard Dr. Fowler deliver hi* "Ureal Deeds
of Ureal Men"—the same lecture for which
he is billed here—and in the interests of
refined intellectual entertainment and cul
ture of the highest order, I ask room
enough to advise every one who possibly
can to embraca this opportunity to hear
him. I will not undertake to give any
idea of his lecture, nor the renewed lectu
rer's eloquence. The opportunity to judge
of| both wlil soon be here, and should not
be loat by any who are capable of appre
ciating them. AviMVt.
