Twelfth, 1848, to Mallnda I, daughter

Mr. Bower, in bis early days, was at
different times a merchant, a justice of
the peace, ami a teacher, near his birth
place. At the age of thirty-six years
he determined to enter the ministry
and went to the University a) Lewis
burg (now Bucknell), where he spent
two years in study and during the
second year filled the pulpit at Au
gusta, Northumberland county, After
this be was ordained as minister in
the Baptist faith and served his first
pastorate at Milesburg, Centre county,
remaining there five years, when he
was called to the Baptist church at
Selinsgrove. He was then sent into
the mission field In the Western states,
and after closing bis work in tbe states
of Missouri, Dakota and Nebraska, was
pastor of the church at Lena, Ills., and
afterwards at Waterloo, Ills. His last

place, conducted the services. Out Of
respect to the oft-repeated wish of Rev.
Hower, the remains were taken to
Lena, Illinois, and ou Monday laid to
rest by the side of his wife.
The Post ventures the assertion that
there was no man living in this com
munity who was more highly esteemed
than Rev. Itower. lie had a smile and
a happy greeting tor everyone, JJur
ing his declining years spent in this
Place, he was frequently asked to Mil
vacant pulpits, which he always did
with pleasure. The mere announce
ment that Rev. Bower would preach
was a guarantee of a full house. Ho
kind, so sincere, so devoted, so pleasant,
so upright the old gentleman earned
and received a righteous and peaceful

Sunday North American Announces it Will
Maintain High Standard of First Issue.
All records, both as to quality of
matter and number of sales, were brok
en by the Sunday North American last
Sunday, when Its first Issue was offered
to the public. In each of scores of
Pennsylvania towns several hundred
more copies might have been sold if
the supply bad been equal to tin
demand. There was a great curiosity
to see what the first number would be,
and newsdealers everywhere report
"clean sales."
Curiosity is quite as strong in regard
to the next Sunday North American
The question is this Will it maintain
the pace and keep the high standard
set in its first Issue? The assurance is
given out that next Sunday's paper
will be even better than the initial
The sheet music supplement, which
is printed on heavy paper and Is in
every way equal to the music purchas
ed In stores, will b ' " Ida from Idaho,"
by John H. Flynn, the author of that
(treat success, " Annie Moore." This
new song is just as catchy as the oni
w hich the people of the I'nited States
are now singing and whistling.
In the Women's Supplement, In
beautiful colors, are Illustrated pages of
new fall jackets and some of the latest
mourning costumes; the very latest silk
waists, which will interest those who
make their own clothes; Marion liar-
land has some good new eooumg
recipes, and discourses on household
topics, including the care of children
Mrs. Henry Sytncs gives many mor
recipes for beauty, and tells how to
acquire health by new breathing exer
cises; McDougall contributes wonderful
stories for children, besides which there
is a puzzle picture and some interesting
In the comic supplement there is an
excruciatingly funny scries by Walt
McDougall, called "How liims Lost
the Flection." There are other comic
shetohes in colors to excite hilarity,
nnd two pages of short humors prose
written by the men who have made
"Puck, " " Life" and "Judge"
The cover of the twelve-page maga
zine shows Pope Leo and his "Cab
inet." It is a wonderfully striking
color page and will attract national
attention. There are ten more pages of
attractively illustrated and genuinely
interesting news features.
