The borough council has done a very
sensible thing iu adding to its chamber, a
large and very well designed case for
filing papers connected with the bor

works and is a rather artistic piece of
work. The secretary can now place his
baud ou any paper desired at a moment's
notice, and is not obliged to ransack
drawers, dusty shelves, etc., and then
perhaps not find what is wanted.
The weather during the past week
has been faultless if one views it from a
winter standpoint. The sleighing has
been lino, affording the best of. hauling
for ull who had heavy wares to transport,
and although there hits been no very se
vere eold weather enough ice has formed
to afford a fine harvest for those having
Linns to fill, and all have taken advau
tugs of tlie opportunity to do so. So the
threatened ice fumins for next summer
has been happily averted.

by an English lord who attended an
American banquet, "Altogether excellent
upon my honor." A most excellent sup
por was served to about thirty guests.
After the banquet were mutual greetings,
"a feast ol reason and a flow of soul,"
while an hour or so was spent In histor
ical games, such as authors, dominoes,
etc. At 11 o'clock we bade our genial
hostess good-night, feeling that it was

The tragio element that shades all

morning, says the Franklin Newn. The
early portion of the evening he spent at
the home of Hon. A. B. Richmond, to
whose duughtor-in-law, widow of II. M.
Richmond, he was engaged to be mar
ried iu April. Returning to his hotel
about midnight, Gov. Osborne was at
tacked by hemorrhage of the stomach,
the result of a severe cold. Having never
been sick iu his life, he hesitated to send
for a physician. When he did send, it
was too lute. He died within three hours
of the first attack. Mrs. Richmoud was
at his bedside when tho end came.

Death of Mrs, (lias. ( lark.
Agnes A., wife of Charles Clark, was
born in Carbon county, Pa., Jan. HI, lR'.O,
and diod at hor home In Tionesta, Thurs
day evening, Feb. 3, 1S98.
The announcement of the death of this
excellent woman sent a pang of sorrow to
the heart of every one of our citizens, by
whom she was so highly esteemed and
respected. The summons rnnio suddenly
and unexpectedly, her Illness lasting but
little moro than ten days. On Sunday
evening, Jan. 23, when returning from
church, whore she was so regular in at
tendance, she first complained of not feel
ing well, but thought little of it until her
trouble developed Into pneumonia, hich
rapidly increased In severity, terminat
ing in death as above stated.
Mrs. Clark was the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Archie Fhifer. Her mother died
whon tho subject of this sketch was but
13 years of age, the youngest of tho fam
lly. For a number of years, after she
had grown to young womanhood, sho had
charge of her father's household affairs.
In January, 188'.!, sho was married to
Charles Clark, while living at Edgo Hill,
Montgomery county, whither her father
had moved. About four years after their
marrage, and aftor the birth of their two
oldest children, Mr. and Mrs. Clark re
moved to Tionesta, where, devoted to
erch other and to their children in a re
markable degree, they have lived most
happily ever since.
Five children, Archie, Nettie, Willie,
Fred and Beulah, are bereft of adear lov
ing mother, whose whole life and energy
seemed to be dovoted to their wants and
comforts. The severing of earthly ties
under such circumstances would seem to
crush the strongest heart, and the sym
pathy which goes out to the stricken
husband and lather in this his darkest
hour, is most heartfolt and sincere.
The funeral was held on Monday after
noon, the services being conducted in
the Presbyterian church, of which she
was a member, and to which place the
cavket, bedecked with beautiful flowers,
the tokens of loving friends, was con
veyed. In his funeral remarks, her pas
tor, Rev, J. V. McAnlnch, paid a high
tribute to the noble Christian character
of Mrs. Clark since she united with the
church, more than four years ago :
"In all that time she was absent but
once from the Sabbath day's service, a
record that but few can equal j that her
constant attendauce and her bright, ear
nest face, eager to know the truth, was
such an inspiration as only a preacher
can fully appreciate." Ho also spoke of
her ready willingness to do anything sho
could iu the Master's service, and of how
she made everything ready for the Sab
bath day so that nothing should interfere
with the attendance of herself and family
from its publio service. "She has left
behiud her a noble monumont of a truly
Christian character, a loving, devoted
mother and wife, a kind neighbor and a
sympathetic friend ; a memory that will
always live in the hearts of those who
know her, and the large congregation as
sembled here to-day declares that these
are not a lew."
After the services, and all present had
taken a farewell look at tho faco once so
familiar in lire, iho remains were laid to
rest in beautiful Riverside cemetery.

Dedication of the PrpshjtTlan Church
The new Presbyterian church of En

The church of Endeavor stands on
what the Scotch would call a brae, and Is
a frame structure of good form, 28x56
feet in size, and was planned by archi
tects Tierce and Kirk ford. The Sunday
school room, kindergarten and audience
rooms can be all thrown together by
means of sliding doors and will seat
about 2"0 people. Tho in-ide finishings
are of polished hard wood, oaK In the
church proper, cherry in tho Sunday
school departments. The windows are
of amber catnedral glass, and the large
memorial window in the front of tiie
church harmonize In general tone with
the othors. Reding, Baird A Co., of Bos
ton, designed and executed this really
artistic creation in glass. At the top is
the sacred lamb and cross with the text
below: "Feed My Lambs." The two
central divisions or the window have bou
quets of white lilies and tablets containing
the inscriptions: "Mary Atkins Wheeler,
1883-1890." "Isabel Smith Wheeler,
1880-189,")." The tws outer divisions have
conventional designs in nicely blended
shades of Jeweled opalescentand art glass.
The pulpit and chairs in oak and brown
were presented In memory of Wm. F.
Wheeler of Portville, N. Y., by his chil
dren. The communion table is a gin of
G. W. Warden, one or the uldeis in the
church. The alms plates were donated
by the Junior Christian Endeavor, which
is lead by Mr. H. A. Lynch and Mrs. W.
A. Stiles. The Bible, I understand, is te
be a gift of the Y. P. S. C. E., which
would bo very appropriate inasmuch as
the church has grown out of the society.
All the remaining expenses of the fur
nishings, lighting, silver communion
set, otc, were defrayed by the Sunday
school and crogregatiou.
Rarely has a winter's Sabbath dawned
more fair and peaceful ; never was suow
whiter nor sky bluer than on the dny
Endeavor dedicated this new church to
the service of God. Loving hands had
brought flowers and plants of thoir own
cultivation to dock the pulpit platform,
and long before the time for worship
Jingling bells announced the arrival of
sleigh loads from Tionesta, Tidioute,
West Hickory, and other directions lar
and near, until the whole edifies was
taxed to its utmost capacity and about
300 were seated.
The programs distributed were printed
and presented by Mr. C. E. White, editor
or Ihe Tidioute News, whose daughters
bad been loved playmates of the dear
onos iu whose memory the chapel was
erected. Mr. and Mrs White attended
the services of dedication. The only
change in the program was that tho Scrip
ture reading and prayer were by Rev. J.
E. Hilhird of the East Hickory M. E.
Church ; and the Invocation by Rev. 8.
A. Cornelius of Oil City. The acoustics
of tlie building are pronounced by sing
ers and speakers to bo perfect, and cer
tainly Mrs. Marks' voice never sounded
sweeter, nor anthem more melodious,
nor congregational music mora inspiring
than on this occasion. The sermon by
Rev. 8. A. Cornelius of Oil City was
from the very appropriate text found in
Exodus, 32: 29, "Consearate yourselves
to-day to the Lord," and after urging the
members to apply this to themselves and
obey the command he alluded most feel
ingly to the new church home; of tiie
vows that might be exchanged before the
altar ; of the dead that might be brought
there, of the little ones dedicated to the
Lord's service, and the souls saved with
in its walls. ,
The dedicatory prayor, by our own
pastor, Rev. J. V. McAninch, was most
earnest and impressive and made us all
feel that the house was now truly the
Lord's, and that He smiled upon and ac
cepted the gift from the bauds of His lov
