theory and receives the first form of it in
the crystal. Each lower stage of existence
opens the way for a higher, reaches its cul
mination in man, and here life reaches its
perfection, and becomes animated by a
definite purpose. The true end of moral
life is te bring man back te his original
fellowship with his Creater, from which he
has fallen away. Systems have been es
tablished with this end in view by various
schools of philosophy, .all of which have
proved defective in idea and void of effect.
Man must try te attain the perfection of
his moral life net in himself, but in Ged.
The heart which is the seat of all our in
tentions must be cultivated, and the great
evils of society must be eradicated by the
light of Christianity. Morality, the first
degree in religion,is kept sacred by striving
te "act in accordance with the Divine law,
and readies its perfection in religion in fol
lowing the true, the beautiful and the
Oration" Hew te Enjoy Life." Mr.
Solemon A. Alt, Blair's Ceiner, Pa. Wc
live in a world where music and beauty
blend with the true and geed. Enjoyment
is net the exaltation of a tickled fancy ;
nftt. n Rndrlpti lilaze of the spirit, but it is
a harmonious jubilee of all the faculties of
the man feasting contentedly. "We leek
back with delight upon the pleasures of
our childhood, but if the child is happier
than the man, it is net because it is se des
tined, but because its enjoyment equals the
capacity te enjoy, whereas the man, by
reason of his indiscretion, is further devel
oped by nature than he is by discipline.
Man's enjoyment new consists in the suit

power of making an instrument of geed
out of evil will heighten the enjoyment of
life, and anyone disposed te cultivate and
maintain the harmonious power of child
hood can with an enlightened mind, en
joy his life in peace, smile at the elements,
and at the impotent assaults of fortune
and be a ulesshiir te humanity and a glory
te his Ged.
Oration "The Tendency Toward Dc Dc
eentralizatieu" Mr. Adam U. llicser,
"West Lccspert, Pa. Authority and liberty
are as necessary te the order of the social
world as the centripetal and centrifugal
forces of the universe, but the excess or
the former ends in despotism and excess of
the latter results in anarchy the two ex
tremes of government and the varying
forms of government that have marked
the history of the countries of the world
are traceable te two primary forces cen
tralization and decentralization. In an
cient times power was concentrated
at the seat of government and local
power became an unknewu factor,
though as early as the ninth ccn
turv.nwith the beginning of the feudal sys-
tnn a distinct leaning toward decentraliza
tion became noticeable, and the germs of
freedom were seen slowly developing.
When Christianity and intelligence began
te shed their light ever Europe, monarchies
became less powerful, the will of the peo
ple assumed new potency. The great
wheel of political revolution began te move
in America, and new in all nations of the
world, the tendency is overwhelmingly to
wards decentralization, and the few iso
lated evidences of a leaning toward a cen
tralized government need occasion no ap
prehension of the spark of liberty being
extinguished, for once kindled, like the
volcanic fires of the earth, it will again and
a"ain burst forth in power and glory.
The orchestra played "En AvauTlt
Oration" Progress by Retrogression."
Mr. James Mitchell, jr., Lancaster, Pa.
The general progress of the human race
has been marked by strange fluctuations.
The record of the rise and fall of mighty
empires and states comprise the most in
teresting pages of history. The majestic
march of civilization has been ever the
graves of nations. Greece, the cynosure
of nations, dazzling them with her
brilliancy, yet marked in the end by an
archy and corruption, yielded in course
of a brief period te imperial Reme, whose
iron sway crumbled beneath her own vast
ness, and fell an easy prey te the barbar
ians of the north. The inevitable law of
retrogression suggests the lessen that a
time will come when even the Anglo-Saxon
civilization will give way te a grander
and nobler development. The history of
the ancient empires of Assyria, Egypt,
Greeec and Reme implies the idea. They
passed into barbarism by the unexpected
path of civilization. It is net blind chance
that presides ever the revolutions of states
but au all-wise providence interfering te
prevent the final deterioration of society,
by the introduction of higher and higher
degrees of civilization
Oration" Deficiencies of Education "
Mr. Ursinus O. Mehr, Quakcrtewn, Pa.
People who profess te knew all about edu
cation fail te account for the controversies
that are continually waging in regard te
it ; it is an agency subtle and mysterious
in its influence. Society is one of the step
ping stones te a perfect education, and se
is association, and current literature. The
trashy sensational ten-cent literature that
is llnediiiiT the country exercises a detri
mental inllucncc in society. If the reading
it provides were truthful, the red man
would long since have passed away, for care
ful computation shows that each page re
cords the death of four Indians en an aver
age. Laughter. The beauties of na
ture should provide a theme of education
for the youthful intellect, and the home
circle is a school that exercises a powerful
meulding influence en the child's future
career, and therefore parents should be
careful in the examples they set before
their offspring. The boy who is taught te
fellow the example of Geerge Washington
and his little hatchet should have impressed
upon his understanding also the fact that
every boy who owns a little hatchet cannot
become the father of his country,
for the country would then have
tnn manv fathers. rLauchtcr. A J
geed education in the right direction
is of inestimable value te its possessor and
t e the world, and its influence cannot be
lest en the undying spirit, ler whatever
prepares one for honorable success and
true usefulness is a part of that infinite
training that stretches through eternity.
Oration "The Power of Science"
Mr. Geerge W. Gerhard, Stouchsburg,
Pa. Standing as we de en the platform' of
modern thought, looking down upon the
lowlands and marshes of the physical and
intellectual world, it is, as when a confla
gration has broken out in a great city, and
no man knows what is safe or when it will
end. Se are we te-day confronted by a
power mere formidable and far reaching
in its results the power of science.
When Galilee and Newton appeared, science
broke its iron fetters and intelligence
cime in upon us like a flood. Who will
check science or step its march. Nene
but He who implanted it in the human
heart. It is a living power enthroned in
the mind of men. Ferms part and parcel of
our existence and an animating agent of
human advancement. It is the incarna
tion of thought and in a sense becomes an
inbreathing or inwerking power of Ged.
In its normal state it recognizes the pre
sence of a higher order of existence in the
universe which has its only source in Ged.
Te attempt te suppress or limit its action
is an insult te our intelligence and a hind
rance te our advancement.
Music " Lancers Morning Dew."
Oration "England's Gelden Age'" Mr.
J. Harrison Geissinger, Lancaster, Pa.
Out of perhaps the most troublous time
into which England ever fell arose the era
that shines as a bright jewel of her crown
through succeeding generations. Queen
Elizabeth's reign was distinguished by
a host of famous men, and socially
and intellectually England attained its
golden prime, which left an indeli
ble impress upon the nation's life and
transmitted an influence te America which
is proved by the still remaining menu
ments of her earnest zeal that enshrines
themselves in Virginia's proud ancestral
towns, and who can tell what potent in
spiration her character or reign, directly or
indirectly, te movements that have led te
our present strength as an English-descended
Oration " Dreams of Life"' Mr. Win.
A. Miller, Yerk, Pa. There is mere poe
try than truth in Shakspcarc's words, "We
are such stuff as.drearas arc made of and
our little life is rounded with a sleep."
True, the world is full of dreamers who
arc picturing te themselves what life ought
te he but what it never can become. Rut
life is no dream, no idle fancy, but an earn
est reality projected into time and space by
Ged's creative power. It is no mere fan
tasy, no mesh of lights and shades,nemcre
stage en which te act ; but is en the con
trary a sphere in which self-consciousness
is awakened into positive activity ; a real
world, filled with realities, with problems
te be solved by thought skill and toil, each
having in itself an end, and each end being
the beginning of larger ends beyond. And
yet all men give up at times te dreaming,
and arc ready te create and populate new
worlds with ideal forms. Rut these de
lusions cannot change stern fact. "Life is
real, life is earnest, and he lives most who
thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the

The Yerk Dixpntch says : "We have re
ports from every section of the county of
tobacco plants growing finely ; the acreage
this year is believed te be double last
year's ; it was then about 4,000 acres, the
yield was about 0,000,000 pounds. With
a favorable season Yerk county must raise
this year 23,000 cases, 400 pounds each, of
tobacco, which at 10 cents a pound round,
would yield our growers and our business
interests $1,000,000." The Bixpatfli'x : fig

planters did net plant last year 4.000 acres
and the yield certainly did net average

Seme Corrections and
It appears wc weic in error yesterday in
saying that there were seventeen com
plaints of larceny made against Henry
"Watsen, and that Aldciman Spurrier had
committed him te answer at court for al1
of them, in default of $:1C0 hail an each
complaint 5,100 hail in all. Our reporter
was misled by the fact that Deputy 1'nsen
Keeper Albright showed him the seven
teen commitments, which were afterwards
handed te Judge Patterson, and during
the hearing of Watsen en habeas corpus
Judge Patterson, while considering the
matter of reducing the bail te $500, re
marked that lie "didn't knew hew te
divide $500 among seventeen cases. The
fact appears te be that there arc only four
complaints of larceny returned te the
court against Henry Watsen and
an equal number against his father, Wm.
Watsen ; and that the seventeen commit
ments handed te the court by Keeper Al
bright included these issued by Alderman
Spurrier for hearing and rehearing of the
cases against Watsen. AVc make this
explanation in justice te the Alderman and
officers who made the arrest.
Uut, while only four cases have been re
turned te court against the Watsons re
spectively, it appears that no less than
twenty cases, growing out of the same lar
ccny, were heard by Alderman Spurrier
and dismissed for want of evidence with
"county for costs." In every one of these
cases as well as these returned te court
the constables were the complainants. The
bill of costs in the cases dismissed amounts
te about $125 of which sum about $30 is
the alderman's share, and $7.1 for the three
constables. The bill was presented for
payment en the first Monday of the month,
but the county solicitor refuses te approve
it and thus far it remains unpaid.
While our police officers and justices de
serve te be sustained in all their proper
efforts te ferret out criminals, the tee com
mon practice of some of them te make
and entertain unfounded complaints for
the transparent purpose of making costs
and fees cannot be tee severely condemned.
