SATUBDAY EVENING, MAY 29, 1880.
THE FIRST QUARTER COMPLETED.
Anniversary Celrbratlen nf the Page Liter
ary Society at Millerkville Last
A NOTABLE LITERARY EVENT.
Orations by Kx-Governer Pollock and Mr.
W. W. Grieitt Immense Audience
and l'ine Entertainment.
The senior literary society of the state
normal school at MiHersville has turned
auetherpage the twenty-iiftli in the hook
of its honorable history, and during the
entire period of its cxistencc.it may he said,
has achieved no muic brilliant success
in the way of literary entertainment than
in the quart-centenary celebration of last
evening. The announcement of se promi
nent a figure in the history of the common
wealth as ex-Governer James Pollock, of
Philadelphia, as one of the orators
of the evening, coupled with the reputation
of the Page society for giving enjoyable
entcitainmeuts, had the effecter crowding
the spacious chapel of the school building
with an audience that occupied eveiy scat,
besides a number of chairs brought into
requisition and placed in the aisle, while
many wcie yet compelled te stand in the
rear vestibule dining the evening.
A special car en the JIIlIersviKe street
railway had been chartcicd by the trustees,
and left this city in the aftci neon, having
en beaid Gov. Pollock and Mr. Griest, the
orators of theevening ; Miss Bovee,the ele
cutienist, the trustees of the school, Prof.
Montgomery, of the faculty, and repre
sentatives of the pi ess. A number
of extra cars went out at 0 p. in.,
and cauicd the usual large number of
the fijends and patieus of the school,
and especially of the Page society,
in this city, though they did net by any
means cempiise the entire Lancaster rep
resentatien, as many went in piivate con
veyances which constituted a seveic tax
en the capacity of the hotels te accommo
date. The blue coleis of the Page society
weie everywhere noticeable among the an
imated throng that piemcnadcd the beau
tiful grounds pi ier te the opening of the
exercises, and later crowded the chapel ;
and the pride and pleasure that maikcd
the countenances of the adheicnb. of this
elder of the sister societies of the normal,
was as natural as the event is notevvoi thy
in the history of the organization.
The chapel bell sounded sheitly befeie
eight o'clock, and directly a ftei the parti
cipants in the pregramme, accompanied by
Piesidcnt Brooks and the eiliceis of the
occasion, took places en the platform. Mi.
J. N. Ueistle, efllanisbuig, picshied, and
Miss Lizzie U.Wiley, of this city, efliciatcd
The exeicisc- opened with an impiessive
prajcr by Rev. A. 15. Shciikle, of Millers
ville, after which the Page glee club sang
W. O. Peikins's "Majing Glee," which
was lendcied with fullness and volume
combined with peii'cct .sweetness of tone
and accuracy of cheid.
The salutatory address by Mr. J. N.
Bcistle cempiised a few rcmaiks of ap
propriate greeting te the faculty of the
school and all fiiendsefthc institution and
el the society. Geed taste characterized
the address net less in its commendable
bievity than in the fitting language in
which it was couched. Tlie audience cx
picssed its appreciation of the welcome ex
tended them by applauding the speaker
and piesenting him with fieial tokens.
Then followed a dillicult piano due,
" Cencertstuck" (Weber), by Miss S. D.
Watsen, with orchestral part arranged for
second piano, by Mr. C. K. Montgomery ;
a very biilliant performance. The admir
able touch and finish of execution that
raaiked their handling of the keys were
the refinement of musical ait, and evoked
a peal of enthusiastic applause.
The Page oration en "Chance Influ
ences" was delivered by Mr. W. W. Giiest,
of Lancaster. Human projects aie mutable
andmeital. Se feebly aie they planned,
se faintly framed, se liable te change that,
as the poet says,
"Oft what seems
A trifle, a mere nothing,
In some nice situation, tnrnstlie -caie
Ol fate, and rules theinest important actions "
A thousand ciicumstanccs occur which
may turn a man from his chosen track, and
wheie one human ship sails out en the
boundless ocean of endeavor and reaches
the haven of its choice, thousands, wicck
ed en some chance rock, sink in the waves
of oblivion, "unknelled, unceffined and
unknown," " unwept, unhouered and un
sung,'" while thousands mere, turned aside
by some chance wind, teach an unforeseen,
an unexpected, but feitunate and success
ful anchorage. These " chance winds "
aie net "luck" only, neither can we say
that accident does very little tewaids
the production of any gieat lesult in
life ; for it has been of no little
moment in shaping the caiccis
of individuals; it has been a mighty factor
in the enactment of history ; science and
art bear its impress, invention and dis
covery ewe it much. As illustrations the
orator cited hew Hugh Miller found some
cea shells in a red sandstone quai ry, and
grew rich in the truth of a lock bound
volume ; hew a spider's web suggested the
first suspension bridge; hew Cuvier was
inspiied with his zeal for the study of na
tural history by finding a shell-fish en the
beach of Normandy ; hew a tiny shipwenn
suggested a plan for the constiuctien of a
great tunnel under the Thames river ; hew
a block breaking in pieces led Gettenberg
te the invent'en or mevab'c types; hew
Jeseph Priestley, noticing the peculiar ap
peal aucc of the atmosphere ever fei mentcd
iquer, eventually disceercd oxygen, ni
trous vapor, oxide gas, caibenic oxide gas,
and opened a new field of science ; hew
Galilee saw a swinging lamp and invented
the pendulum, and hew two spectacle
glasses falling together, and producing a
magnifying effect, led the same man te his
invention of the telescope. These facts
show that life is full of oppeitunities, that
the diffeicnce of men, in a great measure,
consists in the intelligence of their obser
vation, and that accident does net se much
for one as puipese and persistent industry.
Instances of chance influences in history
are net difficult te recall, and they illus
trate well hew the most insignificant thing
may swell into a "tide which taken at the
flcel leads en te fortune." Edward Gibben
tells in his autobiography that he was sit
ting among the ruins of the Reman capitol,
" while the barefooted friars were singing
vespers iu the temple of Jupiter, when the
idea of writing the decline and fall of the
empire first entered my mind." It was
among these same ruins that Byren found
a theme for some of his noblest poetry,
Rienzi was inspiied with his plan for the
restoration of the old Reman polity, and
Peti at ch with his zeal for the revival of
ancient learning. When Charles I., of Eng
land, reigned ever a despotism, tempered
by ignorance and imbecility, he one day
foibadete leave the country two young
men w he were about te embark for Amer
ica. These young men were then "te for
tune and te fame unknown" new among
the most illustrious names in English his
tory are these of Oliver Cromwell and his
cousin, Jehn Hampden. When we censid
er this circumstance ; when we lead that
this same Oliver Cromwell stepped ever
his headless body into the absolute dicta dicta dicta
torshie of Gieat Britain ; and when we
knew this revolution added another story
te the English Temple of Liberty, we are
led te the reflection that there is indeed "a
destiny which shapes our ends, rough-hew
them as we may." Jehn Brown's sym
pathy for the oppressed African was first
aroused, when ten years old, by seeing a
slave ciuelly beaten. Then commenced
the progress of a great soul which is still
Like a cubic inch of air which, if taken
4,000 miles above the earth's surface, will
expind sufficiently te fill a spheie with a
diameter equal te that of Xeptune, se the
smallest weul and the slightest act may
expand and fill the spheres of our being
and affect the lives of generations yet un
born. The triviality of these occurrences
impresses one with the solemnity and avv
fulness of the fact that there is net a
thought nor an act in the life of a human
being but that carries with itatiaiu of con
sequences, the end of which we may never
trace. Ne one stands alone. All arc parts
of a stupendous whole ; generations six
thousand years deep, with hands en their
successors' sheuldei,trausmit the magnetic
current which shall bind the remotest past
and the most distant future. There is an
immeitality in our deeds. Ne human prov
idence is high enough te give us a pros
pect of the end ; the m consists the peril
and icspensib Ii.j m humankind. Mr.
Guest's oration was a thoughtful and
chastely written production, abounding
in ideas feicibly expressed, and delivciert
withal in an easy unembarrassed maimer
without the use of notes. The incidents
he i elated weie applicable te the subject
he discussed, and his ideas followed each
ether m n chain of consecutive thought
which enlisted and ictaincd the closest at
tention of the audience, and at the end
called out a prolonged burst of admiration
and applause. He received a very beauti
ful ileial hoisesheo as a token from some
one in the audience.
Miss A. V. Peebles sang ' Mia Picci
rell.i" (Gomez) in charming style. Her
voice is a soprano of pure quality and 1 ich
ness of volume, and the audience testified
its admiration of the pcrfeimauce by ic
ealling her, the lady iespending with a
pictty English ballad.
Hie leadings of Miss Belle Bovee, of
Bluemfield, N. J., gave a variety and in
terest te the piegrammc, withent which
it would have been lacking in the lullncss
and perfection that distinguished the
entertainment. She is a natural elocu
tionist, being gifted with a flexible and
sympathetic veice that charms the sense
of hearing while conveying an accurate
idea of the tct, and her manner en the
platfeimis lice fiem the embairassinent
that ma: s the eflei ts of many elocutionists.
The selections with she favored her
audience last evening weie the potion
scene fiem "Remee and Juliet," which she
iollewed with a chaste little love poem, then
th.it lellicking dialogue fiem "Lady Gay
Spanker," which was given with all the
vim and eneigy that the author has endow
ed his heieine with, and then she read a
pathetic selection net down en the bill.
Later she lecited Kcllegg's stin mg lines of
"Regulus," which weie delivered with
impassioned force. All her efforts weie
liberally lewaided with applause, together
with the customary floral testimonial.
Miss A. V. Peebles, Miss Ida MeGafuck, i

The honorary address was delivered by
cx-Goveiner James Pollock, his subject
being The Piegiess of Knowledge, in its
Relations te the Practical and the Real."
Before proceeding te the discussion of his
subject proper, hewcvei,J",tlie governor in
dulged in some extended remarks recalling
reminiscences and associations connected
with the inception and establishment of
the Milleisville normal school, which has
grown te be an educational power known
and recognized throughout the land. Its
history, he said, was a noble one ; its
receid must cause te swell with pride the
besoms of all who have ever been in any
way identified with it. It has given te the
republic of letters, te the world of science,
te every department of usefulness in life,
men and women whose work in behalf of
society and education has been of incalcul
able value ; the speaker said that no act of
his life recalls memories mere pleasant and
honorable than that comprised in the fact
that the first legislative measure appropri
ating pecuniary assistance te this school
was a bill approved and signed by him
self as governor of the state a quarter of a
centuiy age. Proceeding te the discussion
of his theme, Gov. Pollock said that the
expression " knowledge is power " is one
frequently quoted, but less generally un
derstood in its true meaning.
The iucrease of knowledge among man
kind is marked by growth in the depait
ments of life which most directly concern
the immediate happiness of individuals,
and tlneugh them atlect the destinies of
states. Knowledge- is net sought after
with sufficient persistence. Men engross
themselves tee deeply in the worship of
the mighty dollar te be able te cive that
attention te the facts of science which '
f.i..:. f....n: ,.i : : !
juiipui usu ui men lacumus nuuiu inspire
them te. Yeung men aie prone te ignore
the pursuit of knowledge in their constant
effottsteapc the airs of their seniors.
Woiksef solid information, constituting
feed for mental thought and activity, are
cast lightly aside for tiashy litera
ture. Civilization must advance ; te
halt is te recede. The youth of the day
must be educated up te an appreciation of
the material betiefits te be gamed by the
attainment of knowledge. Science and ai t
are twin sisteis te labor ; the three go hand i
in hand. All the great inventions of'
ancient and modem times aiej the !
practical ellcct of knowledge gained
by study. The te'egranh, the printing
press, the steam engine these mighty fac
tors of the weild'sjdi s ny convey by their
existence, meie eloquently than any lan
guage could, a tiue idea et the pi egress of
knowledge in its rclat ens te the practical
and tre real ; for they are the outcemo
of knowledge in the broadest ap
plication of the term. In all
linds where pursuit of knowledge is
made the prime consideration which its
impertauc3demauds growth in the sciences,
ia the fine and mechanic arts, is 'distin
guishable. And the speaker would see
abolished the popular heresy that knowl
edge in its true meaning is comprised
alone in these-called "learned" professions.
Laber, honest, manly toil, is chief among
the factors of an enlightened civilization.
Te her strong arm the world ewes the
grandest achievements of her material
prosperity. The speaker said he would
see the workman elevated in the social
scale te a level with the professional man.
Far from being a badge of disgrace,
labor of limb as of brain is a mark of the
highest distinction. The future destiny of
mankind rests in the hands of the jeung
men and women who stand te-day en the
threshold of life. Let them then be taught
that te labor is te achieve fame and honor;
that the pursuit of knowlcdge knows
no end, and that te fellow dili
gently in the footsteps of the illustrious
figures in history who have occupied
places en the stage of the world is te give
te humanity the fruits of the Ged-like at
ti ibutes with which the Cieater has en
dowed them for the geed of mankind.
uev. Pollock s address winch was a practi
cal presentation of truth, delivered without
any attempt at oratorical display, though
sprinkled with occasional quaint and
amusing interpolations that moved his
audience te laughter, was closely listened
te and its telling points were leuudly ap
plauded. He was presented with a hand
some floral basket and bouquet, whichj he
infeimed the audience of his intention
of hauding ever te his wife, as seen
as he getj home, with the compliments of
the Page literal y society, which he was
happy te sce in such a flourishing and
ptospereus condition. Governer Pollock
is apparently yet in the prime of vigorous
manhood. He is above the medium
height and of semewnat massive frame ;
he wears neither moustache nor whiskers,
and his heavy crown of black hair is net
yet tinged with gray. His jovial dispesi
tien seen made him a prime favorite with
