READING SQUIBS,
Reabixg, Pa., Oct. 8.
The long looked for party of the
Y. D. 8. Club took place last even
ing at the residence of Mr. David
Gibson, and to do justice to the club
I must eay it was the grandest affair
of the season. At 8:30 o'clock the
guests contenced o put in an ap
pearance, and at 9:30 o'clock the par
lor was well filled with the beauties
of oir city, when the evening was
well spent with music ard all kinds
of games. ‘At a given signal the
folding dcors were thrown open and
there stocd in the centre of the dining
room a large table loaded down with
all the delicacies of the season, and
there stood President Charles Wil
liams, Secretary C. J. Gibson, Treas
urer R. Terry, Assistant Secretary J.
Stokes and Vice I'resident W.A.
Hubert, a!l dressed in fall black with
spike tail coats to welcome the guests,
which tbey did in fine style, each
one trying to outdc the other in his
attention. The gentlemen wore con
ventional black with button hole
Louquet, and they looked five. I
will give the names of the ladies and
how they dressed. Miss B. Gibson
looked lovely in white trimmed with
cardinal; Miss Mable Terry looked
charming in her silk; Miss S. Cline
looked supe:b in her drab silk over
skirt; Miss K. Lewis looked well in
white trimmed with blug; Miss G.
B. Terry looked handsome in satin;
Miss S. Seidel in velvet and white
was very attractive; Miss L. Thomas,
dressed in blue silk, was the centre
of attraction; Miss Maggie Bowers
looked charming in a drab silk; Miss
T. Stratton wore a cream colored
gilk; Miss L. Terry wore white with
a pink sash. Judging from the
smiles on the faces of the Y. D. they
themselves must have been more
than pleased. At 2:30 the carriages
commenced to arrive, and soom the
Y. D. grand party was at an end.
The Srate Journaw is looked for
now just as anxiously as we look for
our dinner.
Mechanicsburg Personals

It bas not been satisfactorily ex
plaied why we have no Blaine and
Logan club. Perhaps the leaders
think the ¢still hunt”’ system will win
better this campaign. All the same

majority.
Two hearts were made to beat as
one last week, by the marriage of
Taylor Howard, of Harrisburg (for
merly of this place), to Miss Martha
Brisco, of the capital city. The cere
mony was performed by Rev. S. W.
Reigart, of this place. .
Miss Alice Taper, after spending
several months pleasantly with her
parents and friends in this place, left
for her home in P’hiladelphia last
Tuaesday. There are eome sad hearts
in consequence of her departure.
A young Walnut street lady was
asked one day last week why she did
not attend church more regularly.
She replied that she generally an—
swered her corrzspondence on San
day, and therefore seldom got time
to attend religious service. Now, it
is well known that she has only one
correspondent, and last Saturday he
delivered his message in person, from
Greencastle. All the same for the
girl, for they both occupied a front
porch on Marble street, all day Sun
day answering each others affection
ate sentiments. She says that it is
detter than going to church.
A would-be dade had a very inter
esting conversation cut short last
Tuesday evening, about a quarter of
a mile Sonth of this place, by his fair
{riend’s father’s report of an old mus
ket from out the second story window.
The young man only took one glance
at him. The last the father saw of
the dade he was making a hasty
retreat across the orchard, with his
coat tail badly perforated. Ile made
his appearance the next day with his
arm in a sling, for which he will give
no explanation.

is smiling upon us. G. F. D.

Shocking Accident in Tennessce.
Nasuvinig, Oct. 10.—A horrble acci
dent has occurred at Warner’s furnace,
in Hickman county. It was a rule to give
a signal before tapping the furnace, that
the blast may be shut off and all the men
get out of danger. The tapper, through
neglect, tapped the furnace before the
signal was given, and three men, stand
ing near, were covered Dy a seething mass
of melted iron. Two of the men were
burned to death instantly. The other
man attempted to get cut of the way and
waded through melted iron, walking over
one hundred yards. One lived two hours
and died in great agony. The {apper was
also burned fatally. A mule and cart
standing near were consumec.
A Millionaire’s Daughter Caught Drunk,
NEw Yorxk, Oct. 10.—A handsome
woman, showing many traces of refine
ment, was a prisoner in the Yorkville po

ficured in the courts as a contestant of
her father's will, Yesterday she assaulted

there arrested. She was fined $lO, and

peared suddenly a week ago, and is still
mysteriously missing. Nothing is known
of his office affairs, but a special Govern

CHESTER, Pa., Oct. 10.—The launch of
the new steel cruiser Atlanta at Roach’s
yard yesterday afternoon was attendeéd
by Secretary of War Lincoln, Admiral

breadth of beam, and has 73 water-tight
compartments.
MILKED BY A SNAKE.
Why Farmer Yard’s Cow Came in with an
Ewmpty Udder,
Jobn Yard, a farmer living on the
Brunswick Pike, eight miles from Tren
ton, N. J., has been pasturing a number
of cows on a lot on his place for some
time. Recently he noticed that one of
the finest of them invarably eame in in
the morning as dry as thoufih she had
been milked. He was puzzled at this,
and, as an experiment, changed her to
another pasture. Sheimmediately befian
to give the usual amount of milk. After
a few days she was returned to the old
pasture with the other cows, and at once
began to come in dry, as before.
Finally Mr. Yard sent a boy to watch
the cow. ‘The mystery was then quickly
solved. The boy reported that early in
the morning a large snake, ‘‘the biggest
he had ever seen,”’ came and breakfasted
from the cow’s udder, draining it com
pletely dry. The cow did not seem to
mind the operation. The facts are vouch
ed for by responsible persons who have
geen the snake taking its morning meal.

~ The Law’s Inadequacy.
BostoN, Oct. 10.—Benjamin Cole, a
financier and president of a bank, was
arrested yesterday for soundly horsewhip
ping a boy of sixteen who was in charge
of a grocer’'s wagon which he refused to
take out of the way of Cole’s team. The
youngster offered to shcw the marks of
the whip on his body in court, but several
witnesses corroborated his story, and it
was not deemed necessary, ‘‘No man,”’
said Judge M’Cafferty, ‘‘has a right to
enforce such a civil law by force. The
hoy appears to have had a right to be
there. Even if told to go he could not
be forced if he did not obey the com
mand.”” Mr. Cole was fined $lO and
costs, which he paid.
Almost a I’amwr.
Bavrmvorg, Oct. 10.—During the per
formance of ‘A Parlor Match’’ at Ford’s
Opera House last night a calcinm light
began.hissing and finally went out with
a loud report. The boys in the gallery
hearing the noise began to run for the
exits, and the audience, becoming
alarmed, arose to their feet. A panic was
averted, however, by the actors on the
stage commanding the people to it down.
The orchestra struck up, quiet was re
stored, and the performance went on.
An Unseemly Scene in a Conference.
Erlg, Oct. 10.—In the Metho dist Con
ference yesterday there was another
wrangle with Dr. Dobbs, who charged
Dr. Peale with lying about him, Dobbs
having been tried for beating his wife
and acquitted by a conference over which
Dr. Peale presided. Bishop Warren had
to stop the unseemly discussion and de
clare Rev. Dobbs out of order.
Democrats are Compelled to Have Short
Memories,
Miner's Journal.
A good memory would seem to be an
important thing to a Democratic candi
date with a record. Mr. Hendricks wonld
probably be more circumspect in his at
tacks on the Republican puarty for the
voting of land grants, if he had been
able to recall the time when he voted to
grant some fifty millions of acres of
public lands to the Northern and Union
Pacific roads.
THE CRY OF MARIAR,
How Mr. Cleveand’s Rest Was Broken at
a Buffalo Hotel.
Mr. Clevelaud was in a towering rage
when he came down from his room at
the hotel in Buffalo the other morning,
hislllooks indicating that he had not rested
well.
He approached the nobleman at the
desk and in a voice tremnlous with indig
nation demanded why the guests should
be permitted to sufter insult &t the hands
of hoodlums about the hotel.
The nobleman with the diamond as
sured Mr. Cleveland thatsuch things were
not permitted, and asked for an explaua-”
tion.
“Mr. Cleveland answered with blush
ing hesitation that he had been annoyed
all night by some one crying and repeat
ing the word ‘Mariar,””’
he noblemen’s diamond flashed again
as he became lost in thought, and the
great light seemed to enter his soul as he
leaned over and wispered :
“My dear sir, it was the cat.”’

. Early Days for a New Sauit,
“I'see you have a new suit on,”’ re
marked a Chicago gentlman, meeting a
friend.
The friend blushed and replied: ‘“You

“I mean a new suit of clothes.”

taining a cluster of fragrant tuberoses,
