The old Madison academy Is no more,
but Phoenlx-like In Its place has
arisen the handsome and well furnished
AVaverly high school, which Is second
to none for a place of the size of this
This institution was Incorporated by
the state legislature In 1S40. The llrst
board of trustees consisted of Rev.
John Miller, president; Leonard Batch
elor, secretary, and Dr. Andrew Bed
ford, Thomas Smith, Lemuel Stone,
William Thompson and Nicholas Rey
nolds. The building was erected In
1844 and cost the stockholders about
$!i,000. The first principal was Rev. G.
S. Bailey, the llrst preceptress was
Miss Sarah Bunnell, who afterward
married the principal. Dr. Bailey had
many successors, prominent among
them was Professor II. D. Walker,
under whom the school flourished and
waspopular.drawlng its patronage from
a large scope of teiitory. In 1S75 the
building was thoroughly remodeled nnd
repaired at a cost of $l,r,00, and Pro
fessor Walker was recalled after an
absence of twelve years, nnd again
took charge of tho school, but It never
again regained Its former status, many
rival schools having been established
In this part of the state.
Since 187S the Waverly Independent
school district was established, taking
In ndjolning parts of North and South
Ablngton, and lartrer school accommo
dations being needed, the academy
was leased to the public school board
for a term of one year, and they held
possession under said lease during
twelve consecutive years.
Since the repairs In 1S75, the fol
lowing have been trustees, elected ac
cording to the charter: Dr. A. Bedford,
president: Norman Phelps, treasurer;
S. S. Kennedy, secretary, and John
Stone, N. C. Northup, William C. Hall,
M. W. Bliss nnd John G. Fell.
Most of these gentlemen being ad
vanced in years and still retaining a
phllautroplc interest In the academy,
desired to see It properly disposed of
before they departed this life. Ac
cordingly, this matter was discussed
In the board of trustees, and a prop
osition made to the Wuvery school
board to pay the debts established
against the Institution, amounting to
nbout $350, and take a twenty years'
lease of the building and lot, consisting
of one acre of land, originally the gift
of Elder John Miller. Portions of this
debt were paid by the school board
from time to time, reducing1 the same
to $110; and on September 6, 1S90, the
surviving trustees, William C. Hall,
John G. Fell, M. W. Bliss and S. S.
Kennedy, constituting a quorum ac
cording .to the chnrter, and in accord
ance with the will of the deceased
fathers, signed, sealed and delivered
the lease; and Madison academy passed
Into the possession of the Waverly
school board for a term of twenty
years, on condition that the said board
should keep the building and premises
In good repair and keep an Insurance of
$1,200 on the building; said Insurance,
In case the building was burned, to be
used for the erection of a public school
house In the borough of Waverly.
School orders were drawn on the treas
ury for the remaining balance of the
debt of $140 and accepted by tho cred
itors and Madison academy became the
Wavery high school.
The foregoing events of half a cen
tury ago are Important matters in the
history of Waverly and vicinity, nnd
the actors who brought them to pass
are gratefully remembered by the
worthy and lntellgent people of Ablng
ton, who speak of them to their chil
dren and grandchildren as the grand
sires and benefactors who laid tho
foundations of our churches, schools,
public highways and cemeteries, and
from whom most of the best families
have Inherited their lands with the
buildings upon them. The best places
are where the best people live or have
lived, and the community which pro
duced such men as Elder John Miller,
Jonathan Hall, Lemuel Stone, Deacon
Jeffry Dean, Dr. A. Bedford, Deacon
Joseph B. Miller, Benjamin Knight
and many others, Is certainly a highly
honorable community. "They rest from
their labors and their works do follow
In 1895 the old academy was report
ed to be unsafe, and the question of
erecting a new school house was sprung
upon the district. The citizens by vote
requested that the new house should
be placed upon the site of the old acad
emy. The school law of Pennsylvania
would not allow the directors (o build
it on leased ground, and on June 2, 1S9C,
the stockholders of the academy elect
ed a board of new trustees according
to the charter as follows: S. S. Ken
nedy, S. Bedford, E. G. Carpenter, C.
W. Hall, L. W. Stone, A. G. Smith,
Samuel Whellng, W. R. Finch und
George Perry. On June 5 the board of
trustees was organized as follows: S.
Bedford, president; S. S. Kennedy, sec
retary; C. W. Hall, treasurer; und the
folowlng resolution was adopted;
Resolved, That the trustees of Mad
ison academy do sell to the school dis
trict of Waverly borough the property
known as the school house lot, for the
sum of one dollar.
A deed was properly executed, con
veying the said academy lot to tho Wa
verly school district for tho sum of
one dollar, and signed by S. S. Ken
nedy, S. Bedford, E. G. Carpenter, C.
W. Hall, L. W. Stone, W. R. Finch,

accomplished fact, and this Is our

The Maiileld council met in special
session on Monday evening last and
had a very lively time. A committee
fiom Hill street, numbering about
twelve, appealed to the council to re
consider the location In which they de
cided to place the electric light. They
said that It was not necessary In the
middle of the street, but would be of
great service at Evans' corner to all
the people crossing the Delaware and
Hudson railroad track by night. Mr.
Isaac Mendelson, who nppenred on be
half of the negative, said the council
men acted very wisely by selecting the
present location for the llcht and said
that It was nothing but prejudice that
the committee held against him be
cause the light was to be placed so
close to his store. Half dozen objec
tors, all speaking together, attempted
to answer, but finally qulted down and
Mendelson continued. Many of the
committee said It was not prejudice
that brought them there, but that they
wished to ursie upon the council the
necessity of protecting the people In
that dangerous place. The council then
advised the people to call a meeting for
next Thursday evening at the Greek
school, where the councilmen will have
a petition for signatures for or against
Its removal. The committee then left
