Board of School Directors, there closed the
term of one most efficient and faithflil
officer. We refer to Mr. A. O. Furst,
who for years has with others guided the
educational interests of Bellefonte. Hearty
and voluntary is the grateful testimony of
all teachers serving under him to the
willing ear and thoughtful, obliging man
ner invariably shown by Mr. Furst, while
patrons and citisena, taking his measure
from a perhaps severer standpoint, as hear
tily join in this commendation. As the
presiding officer of the board ho leaves
respected for impartial and courteous rul
ing. We trust bis retirement is but tem
porary. To his successor, Mr. Pontius,
we offer our congratulations in assured
anticipation of a worthy following.
CHILDREN'S DAY.— Robert Kaikes found
ud thotiunday-school, and while hi* simple
ideas have developed to magnificent pro
portions, he sleeps in a grave comparatively
obscure, and wo venture that many a Sab
bath-school scholar knows nothing of hiin.
But good men in this country and Europe
have in the observance of ''The Robert
Itaikus Centenary," forcibly remlndod the
millions of Kaikes' beneficiaries of his
work and their obligations, liellefonte,
however, did*liot ull'ord hor boys and girls
any opportunity of paying tribute to the
dead Sunday-school founder, and tho an
niversary of his birth passed unobserved,
tin Sunday, though, our good Methodist
brethren, partly supplemented this ne
glect by setting apart a Children's Day.
Going to tho morning service, we found
tho church prettily decorated. Ivy green
horseshoes, crosses, hearts and wrcathß
gracefully hung, one between every two
windows on whoso sills stood baskets of
(lowers all breathing a sweet perfume over
the sacred room. Handsomely festooned
with dark green was tho gallery front. In
front of, and gracefully resting against the
pulpit, was a harp of laurel and leaves,
supported on either side by large and
The sharp bell having rung its second
ringing, a sweeter, holier harmony stole
over the hearts of the audience in the rich
tones of "He shall feedhis flock," rendered
by a full choir with Miss Clara Lyon pre
siding at the organ. The usual morning
service followed, Mr. Donahue preaching
good truths from the text "Train up a child
in the way fie should go, etc." In the
afternoon the exercises were quite varied
and interesting and additions had been
made to the floral work. To tho right of
the chancel stood a white wooden cross
sparsely trimmed with green and at inter
vals perforated while a white and green
pyramid swung in pretty symmetry from
the centre of the pulpit-arch. A heavy
storm came at two and denied the little
one* a largo audience but a goodly number
enjoyed it all.
Mr. Gray, the quiet, molest superintend
ent led the service with ease. Very beau
tiful was the ceremony after tho opening
hymn, ns in answer to Mr. Gray * call one
happy child after another walked to the
chancel with bouquet in hand and there re
cited each a scriptural verse painting in
some way to the Redeemer, after which each
bouquet was set in a hole of the cross until
the whole stood a beautiful floral cross sur
mounted by a pretty crown setting forth
the Victor's reward. A responsive read
ing followed, now by pastor and school,
now by superintendent and scholars, tho
one from the Scriptures, the other the
poet flower thought*. This was indeed
Speeches were next, Mr. Love leading
and good word* bo *aid. That day he
truly pronounced a "New Departure" in
the history of liellefonte Sabbath-schools.
Mr.David Licb gave appropriately a short
sketch of Robert Raikes, when the pator
taking the cross as hi* basis made some
good remarks. Hinging, good and fitting,
ran all through these exercises helping to
relieve any fatigue. After a collection
during whose taking Misa Lyon played,
the meeting closed. The evening session
was a Sabbath school conference the details
of which we cannot give.
So closed the Children's Day. As we
sat enjoying the joy of the children the
query would come, "Why are such occa
sions so rare in liellefonte ?" Surely the
thus identifying of the young with the
church Is the pastor's main work, and he
that establisbelh not the little ones, will
find it harder to bring them into the fold
later. Let Lutherans, Baptists, Reformed,
Episcopalians and Presbyterians all take
the Methodist suggestion and all have a
children's service and aChildren's Day.
—The circus wan varied by many things
not actually included in the showy adver
tisements posted so conspicuously on all
the highways and by-ways of our town.
The usual number of fights did not occur,
but this was doubtless owing to tho fact
that the inspiriting fluid which usually
produces little passages at-arms, was well
diluted with the pure waters of our in
comparable spring. The arrests were num
erous, but the actual number who found
lodging In our uncomfortable lock-up, only
aroso to the dignity of three. Considering
that the crowd which thronged our streets
was the largeat seen here for years, on any
similar occasion, the valiant army of
belligerents was but poorly represented at

A MrsTXßtotm MARRIAGE—WHAT
MAY IIE A ROMANCE IN READ LIKE.—
When tho five o'clock train from Lock
Haven thuudered into the depot on last
Saturday afternoon, a lady and gentlo
man alighted who excited more than pass
ing interest from the cautions and uncer
tain manner in which they conducted
themselves. After much hesitation, they
hastily consulted together in a ner
vous and flurried way, walked to the
lirockorhoff House Bus and entered with
out spoaking a word or looking at each
other. The curiosity of a DEMOCRAT re
porter was aroused by tho evident trepida
tion of the parties, the half questioning
and. half alarmed manner in which they
gazed upon the usual throng at the depot,
the conscious relief they experienced when
they failed to recognize anyone, and he
determined to see what the future of this
strunge visitation would bring forth. He
found on the Hrockcrhoff House register the
following names, written in a fair hand,
J. Wolf, Lycoming, Pa.,
Miss J. K Carson, " "
Mr. Wolf was much above the usual
height, quite slender, and has evidently
faced the storms of forty-five winters. Ho
had a sandy mustache and chin whiskers
slightly tinged with gray and altogether
he would pass in a crowd as a fair look
ing man. Miss Carson gave unmistakcable
indication of having been kissed by the
genial suns of at least forty summers. Af
ter registering, the gentleman hastily walk
ed behind the desk in theofflcoHnd was im
mediately engaged in an earnest conversa
tion with the clerk, Mr. M 'Koever. Assoon
as this conference terminated the clerk or.
dors the porter to take the gentleman to a
room, arid a little further investigation de.
voloped the fact that both Mr. Wolf and
Miss Carson had been assigned one apart
ment. Mr. McKeevcr at first declined any
explanation of this extraordinary pro
ceeding, saying that it was at the request of
Mr. Wolf. But ujMin being pressed he ac
knowledged that the parties were to be
married at the hotel that evening, but
that they did not wish any one to be made
uware of it but those actually necessary to
the solemnisation of the marriage cere
mony. It was further discovered that a
request had been despatched to the Rev.
Mr. Donahue to officiate on this most un
usual occasion. A reply was received
from the wife of the pastor of the Metho
dist church saying that her husband wn
not at home, but would leturn on the half
past eight o'clock train. This hour exactly
suited the mysterious but impatient bride
groom. After onc more counselling the
utmost secrecy, the parlies were invisible
until tho crucial moment arrived. Mr.
W. K. Teller caught Mr. Donahue on
the fly at the depot upon the arrival of the
anxiously looked for train, and travel
stained and dusty, as he was, the reverend
gentleman,carpet bag in hand,lost no time
in presenting himself beforo the expect
ant couple. Before the impressive cere
mony of tho Methodist church began
which was to unite the*e two people to
gether for life, Mr. Wolf once more
made the request that nothing be said of
tho matter for one year. To this Mr. Dona
hue assented after being assured that all
possible arrangements bad been made for
absolute secrecy. He will doubtless be as
much surprised as Mr. Wolf to find this
true and circumstantial account of the
whole affair In print so soon. The cere
menial was concluded and Mr. Donahue
took his leave. The couple kept closely
to their room until Monday morning,
when the bridegroom returned hoine and
tho bride started for the west. Altogether
this was a strange binding together of two
hearts that now ought to Wat as one.
Whether we will have an explanation of
the mystery or not, is in tho womb of the
—Last Sabbath Rev. Joseph N'esbitt,
pastor of Great Island Presbyterian
cburcb of Lock Haven, exchanged pulpits
with Kev. Win. Ijaurie of this place. Mr.
N'esbitt is always welcome in town both as
a gentleman and as a minister. Ho deliv
ered two fine sermons and we trust the
good Presbyterians of Lock Haven fared
as well as wo by the exchange. Mr. X.
has most peculiar ways of imparting truth
as will be seen from an article clipped
from the Philadelphia TVmes of Saturday :
"Tho Kev. Joseph Xesbitt, of Lock
Haven, recently preached a sermon, not
one word of which was his own, and yet
nobody in the congregation accused him of
plagiarism. He announced his text for
the evening sermon from Timothy 2, 1-18:
1 Hold fast the form of sound words.' ne
then repeated from memory, in his usual
deliberate way of speaking, the entire
Shorter Catechism, at the close of which
he closed the service with prayer, without
a word of comment. It was an extraor
dinary sermon, and was listened to with
great interest by the congregation, many
of whom had never before heard the
whole of the Shorter Catechism, and most
of whom would have been flightened at
the bare idea of committing it to memory.
It is safe to say that not one minister in a
hundred can repeat the Shorter Catechism
from beginning to end."
But a few days will elapse before the
Academy closes its present 'year. We
trust Mr. Hughes feels grateful in the
growth he has developed and that satisfied
patrons will aim to swell the number of
the School. Mr. 11. is a teacher of long
experience and we trust Bellefonte is the
belter for his labors here.
—Our regular local editor, Mr. Newton
H. Beiley, wrote us last week under the
stirring nom-de-plume, 'Ollvor Cromwell.'
We trust our renders will enjoy more of
Oliver's correspondence and that through
him they may gain larger ideas of the
land beyond the river.
Organization or thk Bem.kfontf.
Fknciiii.rm. —Tho long looked for official
organization of tlio new Bellefonto Fencl
ble* took j.laco, in pursuance of order*, on
last Saturday afternoon, at the parlor* of
the Undino Fire Company, on Biibop
street. Mj. Geo, F. Harri*, conducted
the organization and election, assisted by
I Lieutenant! Jackson and Arne*, of Al
toona, officers of the Fifth regiment. The
attendance wa" unexpectedly large, forty
three of the fifty-two on the roter, hold
ing up their hand* and solemnly pledging
them*elv > e* to tho service of the State for
five year*. The contest for tho different
position*, although animated, wa* carried
on with the utmost good feeling and there
wa* not a single unpleasant feature in the
whole proceeding*. A mo* Mullen wa*
elected Captain, Geo. L. Potter, First
Lieutenant and Harry S. Hale, Second
Lieutenant. These selection! were re
ceived with the greatest satisfaction hy tho
whole company. Their well-known char
acter and fitness insures wisdom and cure
in the choice oi the remaining officer* of
thocompany. Although the commissioned
officers in a military organization, are of
course, the rno*t important in jioint f
honor and preference, yet there are other
officers in humbler position, equally im
portant to the discipline and moral* of the
men. This is especially true of the Order
ly Sergeant. After the election of officer*
had been satisfactorily concluded, Major
Harris in a few well chosen remarks in
troduced Col. Burchfleld, commanding the
Fifth regiment. The Colonel [.aid a high
compliment to the material composing the
company and predicted great results for
the future of the Fencibles. Speeches were
also made by Lieutenants, Jackson, Ames,
Col. Hustings. Maj. Spxagler and others,
after which the company was disbanded
with order* to assemble at the Undine
hose house, at 7j o'clock, P. M., for the
purpose of tendering the position of Cap
tain to Amos Mullen, who had not been
present at tho time of hi* election. Head
ed hy the Mountain City band, the newly
organized Fencibles marched to the house
of their Captain elect. Mr. Mullen ap
poured and wa* informed by Maj. Harris
of hi* election. He accepted the responsible
|->sition and wa* then sworn into the service
of the State. Three hearty cheer* were giv
en by the company for their Captain which
called him forward. He thanked the com
pany and introduced Maj Spangler, as his
proxy, in the *|>ecb-making line. He
made a happy little address, when Captain
Mullen took personal command of the
company, reformed it and gave the order
to march. The next halt was made in
front of the residence of Hon. A G. Cur
tin, where the company was drawn up in
line, facing his mansion. After some
beautiful muilc rendered by the liand,
Gov. Cnrtin appeared and was introduced
by Maj. Spangler a* the first Captain of
the original Bellefonte Fencibles. After
briefly alluding to the old organization,
the Governor proceeded to deliver one of
the most eloquent l.ttle *f>ecche* it was ever
our good fortune to hear. His plea for
peace; for good will, and national recon
ciliation, elicited loud cheers from the
large crowd which lined the street. Leav
ing here the Fencibles paid their respects
to Lieutenants Hale and Potter. They
then marched to the residence of General
James A. Beaver, commanding the bri
gade of which the Fifth Regiment forms
a part. Gen. Beaver's remark* look a
practical turn. He reminded the "boys"
that the career they had entered upon wa#
no child's jJay, and then proceeded to in
struct both officer# and men on their du
ties. He pledged tho company the best
equipment the State could furnish and only
asked in return that the men should en
deavor to make themselves good soldiers.
The company then marched in front of
the headquarters of the Grand Army of
the Republic where they were ordered to
