.Amangfce crowd of pedestrians which
headediin the direction of theBaltimoreand
Ohio terminus, not many minutes "before 3
o'clock yesterday afternoon, could be dis
covered a young lady and gentleman. There
..was.notaing in the appearance of the couple
'which should single them ont for remark,
- beyond that the young man was more than
specially carefal in steering his fair comp'tn
Jioh1 clear of bibulous citizens or obstreperous
Jjjruttics; bnt tor all that a halo of romance
perched oTer their leads.
- "If "Love laughs at locksmiths" it is
equally true that it treats with supreme dis
dain the .opposition of parental authority
andythe warnings of maternal misgivings.
And so it did in the case of two loving
hearts which now beat as one ana the ex
clusive proprietors of which are well-known
residents ol Unioutown, .Pa.
'Charles B. Mahaney wooed andwon the
.heart of Miss Elma Hadden, a yonng lady
who is highly esteemed in TJniontown social
circles, but the aforementioned parental au
thority filed a protest against suggestions of
'"matrimony, and the young pair.'in conse
quence, thought it wise to dissemble.

JJrssembling is all very well as far as it

but'it is liable, at length, to become monot-

fonnd it and he began to lay plans to inter
rupt the enforced serenity of the situation.
-Tbe course of true love never did rnn
;. -smooth, but on this occasion it made a de
"parture, and on Sunday aiternoon, repre-
f tented in the persons of the loving pair, it
bestowed itself in buggy drawn by a spank
ing team, and was soon embarked on board
the mail at Cennellsville and traveling over
v -jfitlie Baltimore and Ohio to this citv.
""& If the pair had inclination for philo-
ffonhic-converse they might have been re
minded of the -nps and downs found along
the highway of life's journey bv the ieat
s nres of the road from the Coke City to this
point, bnt even the picturesque Baltimore
and Ohio must, on occasions, subserve its
attractions to others of a more personal
nature. Arrived here a minister quickly
5 made it possible for two hearts to perform
the anatomical impossibility of beatine as
j one, and soon afterward the register of the
-.V Central Hotel bore witness to the fact that
-' Charles D. Mahaney and wiih were among
-y the guests of that well-known hostelry.
' BACK TO TJJJIONTO'WSr.
Jt was the intention of the young couple
to.return to their respective domiciles and
carry on the dissembling act for another
P,t while or two, enabling the parental position
alio be approached by sap -and mine and be
J ( sieged until obliged to surrender. But,
alas! for the well-intentioned plans of the
elopers, a reporter for this paper was ac
costed by Air. John Laidley. who unfolded
- ,the little-romance. Mr. Mahaney was con
gratulated bv "The Dispatch man on the
success of his matrimonial venture and in
formed that it was with much regret that he
could .not afford the TJniontown journals the
' pleasure of outstripping this paper on the
The gentleman who is responsible for the
story said that about three years ago Mrs.
Charles D. Mahinev's family moved down
to Alabama, for the purpose of, if possible,
breaking the ties of sympathy which existed
between the young people, but subsequently
returned to TJniontown, owing to the state of
Jhl. the. lady's health. It Js said that a sister of
MNDfn.ta&ialianey's;' some 3 or- 4 years ago,
eloped in a somewhat similar manner.
.Some Circulars Sent Ont Have Evoked Re-
eponses to the Tune of 8CS.000 The
.Amount Necessnry Said tp be la bight.
The scheme of the Americus Club to issue
4 per cent bonds for the erection of a club
house is meeting with success, so far as it
has gone. Circulars were sent out two or
three days ago asking the members of the
Aclub if they favored the plan, and if so, how
much money they would be willing to place
at' the disposal of the club for that purpose.
At 1 o'clock yesterday 25 members had
resnonded to the circular and'amonnts ag
gregating 58,000 bad been pledged. "When
it is considered that the committee wants
but $105,000, it is evident that the members
deem the scheme a pretty safe investment.
The club lias an option on the Hamilton
Hotel for 30 days, dating lrom the 18th
inst., and there seems to be no doubt that
the necessaiy amount will be pledged by
the time the option must be covered.
Although the idea of building a club
house has been talked of for over a year by
the members, there has as yet been no
definite plan decided upon. It was only at
the last meeting of tne club that the Build
ing Committee was appointed. This com
mittee consists of A. G. Boenigk. H. D. "W.
, English and Harry A. Paul. If the Ham
ilton Hotel is secured several thousand dol
lars will be spent in remodeling and im
proving the house to meet the requirements
of the club. Some trouble jnav be exper
ienced in securing the hotel property, as it
was reported yesterday that the deed was
held by about a score of heirs.
To-day the committee will call on the
prominent members of the club who have
not yet responded to the circular with a
view, if possible, to raise the amount to the
required sum at once. There is little doubt
that this will be accomplished, as the re

CHILDREN OK THE QUI TIVJS.
For months the children have been antici
pating the advent of Yuletide. It has pro
vided them with an inexaustible store of
conversation. They have longed for it, be
cause they know that papa and mamma
will remember them at Christmas by con
tributing to their earthly store a little token.
But how about the children who have no
"papa and mamma." "Is anybody going to
remember them? Look in at tbe orphan
asylum? Here vou will see the fatherless
and the motherless, who will remember
them at Christmas lime? Will anybody?
Did anybody? Yesl Gusky's, generous to
a fault, carried around to the various hos
pitals and asylum 2,000 gifts, which were
principally distributed among the little
folks. Ah, yes, Santa Clans remembered
them. Bobed in all his mystic raiment fol
lowed by a retinue of servants, who dis
pensed the good things which his bounteous
hand had provided, he visitedall the benev
olent institutions of the two cities.
TKANSFOE3IED HT ATPEABAKCB.
Yesterday morning at 9 o'clock Market
street looked like a fair ground. Twenty
three wagons, gaily decorated with bunting
and evergreens, and loaded with innumera
ble presents, lined the streets. Twenty
carriages preceded the wagons, occupied by
the donors of the presents, ana in front of
all Santa Clans sat in a royal chariot drawn
"bv six prancing steeds to the various homes
The great clothing firm procession at
tracted considerable attention all along the
route. Children followed Santa Clans,
greeting him with hearty plaudits. At 10
o'clock the procession halted at tbe Bidge
Avenue Orphan Asylum. Santa Claus en
tered this home amid a volley of cheers. He
welcomed the little ones with the same gusto
that they greeted him. A wagon load of gifts
were taken in, and they were given away
among the inmates. No boy or girl was leit
without a gilt. Gusky's had each present
labeled with the name, and age of the recip
ient The gifts were appropriately chosen,
according to the age at the person. The
presents given away were suitable between
the ages of 5 weeks and 94 years.
ONCE MORE ON THE WaV.
After distributing the presents at Bidge
avenue, the procession was divided, one-halt
taking Allegheny and the other half taking
the Pittsburg division, which included the
The Pittsburg division "got a move on"
at 11 o'clock. They crossed the Allegheny
river by the Seventh street bridge, and then
made straight for St Michael's Home
on the hill, above South Eighteenth street
Cheer after cheer rent tbe air when
Santa Claus was sighted by children. From
hi chariot to the hall of tbe home Santa
had a triumphal march. After the party
had all been seated 20 childish voices sang
a grateful ode to the children's friend.
"Thank you, Santa Claus," said a little
voice on receiving a present; "Hay God
bless and prosper you." This frank out
break of cratitnde from the childish heart-
visibly affected the impersonator of the
LUNCHEON -AT ST. MICHAEL'S.
Luncheon was served to the party by the
Board of Managers of St Michael's Home.
It was no mean spread, either. Everything
was provided which would add pleasure to
the occasion. A speech expressive of the
gratitude of the institution to Mrs.
Gusky was delivered by .Mr. Andrew
The Homeopathic Hospital was the next
visited, where 29 gifts were given to the little
ones. The next stop was made at the Chil
dren's Temporary Home, where 20 childish
hearts were gladdened by the same number
of gifts. What clapping of hands there was
when the presents were handed around.
Looking into the face of a little one at this
home it was a sight The boy's whole coun
tenance was suffused by a radiant smile, his
eye sparkled with a clitter more dazzling
than a diamond. One look of gratitude
from those eyes repaid Gusky's for their
trouble and big outlay, because it was the
expression of absolute'thankfulness.
OTHER PLACES VISITED.
Visits were then paid to St Paul's Or
phan Asylum. Three hundred and fifty
gifts were donated to this institution; 20
were given to the West Penn Hospital, 51
to the Episcopal Home, and 138 to the Lit
tle Sisters of the Poor. At this latter place
the presents were of a serviceable character.
Tne Allegheny contingent went through
asimilar procedure to the Pittsburg divi
sion. The following benevolent institutions
were visited and gifts given : Colored Orphans'
Home; 69; Women's Christian Home, 26;
Presbyterian Orphan Home, 42; Allegheny
Nursery, 22; Allegheny General Hospital,
9; "Protestant Boys' Home, 20; Home for
the Friendless, 120, and Little Sisters of
the Poor, 73. and the German Protestant
Orphan Asylum, 21.
The most notable episode in tne Alle
gheny distribution of gifts was at the Home
of the Good Shepherd, Trov Hill. After
the distribution of gifts the Sisters served a
royal least to tne donors.
At the Little.Sisters of the Poor one old
woman, named Mrs. Katie Hawkins, who
had received a gift from Gusky's for the
past seven years, and was anticipating the
day again, did not answer to her hame when
Mr. Solomon asked for her. She was
beyond earthly sound, having passed to her
long home the day previous. This circum
stance was the only one to cast a shadow on
the day's proceedings.

Hyelenls Treatment, by Which Disease,

The wonderfully effective treatment (so
frequently referred to of late years in the
"Microcosm"), discovered by Dr. A. Wil
ford Hall, is now offered to suffering hu
manity in the shape of a confidential health
pamphlet, fully unfolding the treatment in
a manner so clear as to be easily under
stood. One careful perusal of the Health
Pamphlet will convince any reasonable per
son of the solid logic and sound reasoning of
Dr. Hall, and the regular application of the
treatment will conquer the most stubborn
cases of piles, constipation, dyspepsia, loss
of appetite, liver complaints, headaches,
heart disease, incipient consumption, dia
betes, Bright's disease of the kidneys, rheum
atism, fevers, inflammation of lungs or other
internal organs not by attacking those and
other kindred diseases directly, but by radi
cally neutralizing and removing their
causes, thus allowing nature herself (the
true healer) to do her work unimpeded.
"When once Becured it lasts a life-time,
saving many doctor bills; not only curing
disease but inducing health and longevity
by fortifying the system against the possi
