The following item from the last Waverly j
Advocate will afford CHARLIE SMITH some j
consolation:
"Charles Mclvy, who ran a foot-race aI- j
most alone, recently in Towanda, won $7,000
at Fleetwood Park, New York, on Thursday j
of lust week, heating Hermon, of Canada, 1
three yards, ii a race of 150 yards. Jas. A. ;
Bell, of this place, is in qui'te a snug little j
stake."
The Commissioners have finally decided to
buy the MCKEAN place, near Burlington, for
a poor-house farm. We tear the amount to be '
paid is $8,200. We think the location a good
one and the farm well adapted to the purpose ;
for which it is to be used. Now the Conunis- 1
sinners should erect suitable buildings, not '
more than two stories high, with such con
veniences as those entitled to the benefits of,
such an institution require.
The farm purchased contains 207 acres, is i
nearly all tillable and well watered.
THE NEW YORK TRIBUNE.—AS a news j
and family paper the "old reliable" Tribune, j
has never lieen surpassed, if equalled, and it ;
is a better paper now than ever. Its treat-,
meiit of all public questions is also able, dig
nified and candid. It never panders to pas
sion or prejudice, but presents its arguments
with clearness and force, and appeals to the
good sense and honesty of its readers to sup
port the right and oppose the wrong. This
is one of the elements of its great influence j
among the people—an iuilucncc now admitted
by the leading men of all parties. We invite
attention to its prospectus in another place,
and to its amazingly cheap offer of Chambers's
Cyclopaedia as a premium.
MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR.—MAIILON ANGLE,
' i
who is engaged in buying hides and pelts for
G. A. DAYTON, met with a mysterious acci
dent in Sullivan county on Friday last. On
the evening of that day his team were discov
ered a few miles this side of Forksville quiet
ly walking along the street. On being taken to j
the hotel they were recognized by the propri- j
etor, and search at once made for the driver
and wagon. Mr. ANGLE was found at the i
house of Mr. LITTLE, in a partially uneons-1
cious state, unable to give any explanation in I
regard to the accident which had befallen
him. A telegram was sent Mr. DAYTON on
Saturday morning, who with JOHN J. SPALD
ING, a brother-in-law of the injured man, at
once started for Forksville, to minister to ;
him, and if possible learn the particulars of
the affair. They found Mr. A. badly bruised
about the head and face, hut when they left j
him yesterday afternoon, he had not recover- j
ed his senses|sufficient to explain satisfactorily i
the cause of the accident. The team which
he was driving were both high spirited ani
mals, and both have occasionally run away,
but on this sccasion gave no evidence of hav
ing been excited, and the wagon and harness
were only slightly injured. These facts at first
lead to a suspicion of foul plav, hut as his
money was unmolested, there seems to be no
ground for such a theorv. The probabilities j
are that he was either attacked with a fit of !
some kind and fell from his wagon, or that,
the team became unmanageable and he |
was thrown to the ground with such force as
to render him insensible. Dr. WOODHURN
visited him on Saturday, and D. C. DAYTON
is now at Forksville taking care of him. It
is hoped he will soon be restored, when the
mystery which now surrounds the affair will
lie cleared away.
At a special meeting of Mantua 11. and L.
Co., No. 4. held Saturday evening, the follow
ind'.'pendent. nominations were made for De
partment officers for 1880:
Chief Engineer —CLAßK B. PORTER, of
No. 3.
lx< Asst. Eng. —A. S. Down, of No. 1.
2d. Asat. Eng. —l. J.CAVA.NAUGII, of No. 4 ■
These nominations were made in opposition
to the regular ticket formed at the convention
held last week; although voted for by two!
of their delegates, being obnoxious to the
company, us it is helioved t he to the better
portion of the Department gen rally.
It is believed a full vole will he polled, and
the indepen I lit ticket (I'eld. having as it J
has, at its head one of the best firemen in
Towanda. CLARK B. PORTER. It is earnest
ly requested that all members desirous of a
reform in the Department come to the polls
and help elect him.

DEDICATION OF THE CHURCH OF SS. PE
TER AND PAUL. —The new Roman Catholic
Church of Saints Peter and Paul, corner of
Third and Lombard streets, was < edicalcd
yesterday by the Bishop of the Diocese. Rt,
Rev. 1 iio.s. () IIARA, assisted by Bishops
M'QIJAID, of Rochester, and SH ANAII AN, of
liarrishurg, and some ten or twelve Priests.
The dedicatory service was quite elaborate,
but being rendered in Latin we were unable
to comprehend the whole of. The sprinkling
of Holy Water, and the burning of Ineense
were symbolical of tin* sacred purposes to
which the building was set, apart, and of
prayer and praise which will be continually
offered at the altar. At the conclusion of
the ceremonies, which were full of meaning
to the devout Catholic, Father KELLY gave
notic of the evening service, and the fast days
of the week. Bishoj SHANAHAN delivered
the dedication sermon. The discourse was
founded on the text — 44 Go ye, therefore and
teach all nations; baptizing them in the name
of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy
Ghost; teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you; and be
hold, I am with you all days, even to the con
summation of the world.". The sermon was
j a most able, eloquent and convincing defense
of the Christian religion, as the only system
universal in its scope, and adapted to the ro-
I quii'cmcnts of all people. A mere synopsis
of the masterly effort would convey but a faint
idea of its beautiful harmony and consum
ate logic, and wc forbear any attempt at a re
! port of it, but should be pleased to print the
sermon entire.
11l the evening, after Vespers, Bishop Mc
i
QUAID delivered ajecture which we bear well
spoken of.
At both sevicers the large ehureh was
crowded to its utmost capacity, all the protec
tant churches being well represented.
The ushers were JOIIN PHELAN, TIIOS. 1

MISKV and FRANK J. BLUM. They were all
tastily attired and wore white kids, with a
rosette of white silk 011 the lapel of the coat.
FRANK SULLIVAN ami TIMOTHY CORRETT
waited upon the Priests.
The music was very artistically rendered
by the Cathedral Choi of Scranton.
dfW IMPORTANT TO SCHOOL DIREC
TORS AND TAX PAYERS—The fol

There is but one time in the year when di
rectors can adopt a new series of text books
for the schools under their charge, or change
old ones, and that is between the time of
electing teachers and the opening of the
schools. Section 23, Act of M: y I. 1854, says:
"Tin/ immediately after the annual election
of teachers in each school district of the state,
and before the opening of the schools for the
ensuing term, there shall be a meeting of the
directors or controllers and teachers of each
district; at which meeting the directors or
controllers shall decide upon a series of school
books, in the di lie rent branches to be taught
during the ensuing school year; which books,
and no other, shall he used in the schools of
the district during said period.''
Such is the law, with this exception, that
hooks cannot now be changed more frequent
ly than once in three years.
