Its meetings are held regularly and they seem to be well attended. The members are certainly discrediting the reputation of their city for “slowness.” The Literary Club met on Mon day evening last at the home of Dr. Benjamin Gill. Officers for the en suing year were elected as follows: President, Rev. George I. Brown, of Bellefonte; First Vice-President, Mr. J. PI. Frizzell; Second Vice- President, Prof. George C. Butz; Secretary and Treasurer, Mr. P. O. Ray. The Literary Program consisted of a paper entitled, “The Old Man Eloquent,” read by Mr. J. H. Frizzell, and a discussion, led by Rev. George I. Brown, on the topic, “The Spirit of Caste.” Mr Friz zell’s paper was an appreciation of the life and service of the late Sena tor George Frisbie Hoar, of Massa chusetts. Rev. Brown based his remarks on an ancient book on caste, and applied some of the satires of the book to our modern conditions.
