The leading social event of the sea son at Driftwood was the marriage of Mr. Charles Dorwin Porter of Mifflin, and Miss Ruth Sherwin Richardson which was solemnized on Tuesday, Sept. 14th, at the Union church in the pres ence of a large company. The event was of special interest on account of the prominence of the contracting par ties, Driftwood having been the home of the bride's family for many years and the groom having been located there for some time. The church in which the ceremony took place was beautifully and elabo rately decorated for the occasion. The altar being banked high with autumn flowers and foliage, goldenrod pre dominating. Promptly at the hour designated Miss Rachael Brookbank, who render ed a beautiful overture while the com pany was being seated, played the popular and impressive wedding march Lohengrin, as the wedding party entered the edifice. The groom was attended by Charles Gray, Esq., of Pittsburg, a son of Judge Gray, the eminent jurist of Dela ware. The members of the bridal party were: Mrs. V. King Pifer of Williamsport, a sister of the bride, matron of honor; Miss Nina Grier Bryan of Emporium, maid ofhonot; Miss Helen Richardson, sister of the bride, Miss Elizabeth Porter of Fort Wayne, Ind., sister of the groom and Misses Edna Mitchell and Martha Gleason of Driftwood, bride's maids. The bride entered on the arm of her oldest brother, George B. Richardson, Esq., of Grove City, by whom she was given in marriage. The ushers were Arthur Byron of Olean, N. Y., Miles and James Porter, brothers of the groom of Fort Wayne, Ind., and R. Laughton Richardson of Driftwood, brother of the bride. The bride was beautifully gowned in white chiffon mull with handsome lace trimmings, a tulle veil completed the artistic costume. Her bouquet being a shower of brides rosee. She wore a beautiful brooch, the gift of the groom. The matron of honor wore her wed ding gown of cream satin with drapery of old family lace and carried white asters. The maid of honor was attired in an handsome gown of point d'sprit over messaline satin. She also car ried an arm spray of white asters. The four maids wore dainty gowns of white Paris muslin and carried lavendor asters. The bride presented her attendants with brooches and the gift of the groom to the male members of the party was handsome tie pins. The solemn and impressive words that joined the young couple for life, were pronounced by the Rev. J. M. Robertson, rector of the Emporium Episcopal church, the beautiful ring service of that denomination being used. Immediately following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride. The happy couple received the congratulations of the wedding guests, the entire bridal party and the mother of the bride being in the re ceiving line. After these happy feli citations had been extended the com pany was seated and a dainty lunch eon was served in the parlors, dining room and spacious porches of the house. The house decorations were very profuse, the floral adornments in the reception room being white clerati tis, autumn flowers and foliage consti tuted the decorations in the interior apartments and porches, the bride's table being ornamented with clematis and goldenrod, the color scheme throughout being yellow, white and lavendor. An hour later the bride and groom left on the west bound train to enjoy a western trip. After November Ist they will be at home in Mifflin, Pa., where Mr. Porter holds a responsible position with the Pennsylvania rail road. None of the features incident to the departure of a newly wedded party were omitted by the large num ber of friends assembled at the station, the well wishes of all being extended to the couple, whose dual journey through life starts out under the most auspicious circumstances. The bride is the daughter of the late Francis E. and Mrs. Richardson and is held in the highest esteem of a very large circle of friends and acquaints ances. Her brightness and vivacity have made her deservedly popular and that hapninesa unlimited may be hers through lilts, "incere wish of the many whose friendship she has long enjoyed. Mr. Porter is the son of Dr. Miles Porter, a prominent surgeon of Port Wayne, Ind., and is a young man of sterling qualities. He is a graduate of Purdue College and for several years has been connected with the Pennsylvania railroad in various capa cities requiring mechanical and engin eering ability of a high order. The happy event of Tuesday was at- , tended by guests and relatives from Forf Wayne, Ind., Olean and Buffalo, N. Y., Emporium, Dußois, Union City, Johnsonburg, Williamsport, Grove City and other places. The gifts to the bride were very j numerous, including many beau tiful articles of silver, cut glass, linen, china and furniture. * Howard —Rothfuss. Last Wednesday evening, Trinity Episcopal Church at Williamsport, was the scene of a very pretty wedding, when Miss Alarcia Howard, daughter of Mrs. Editha Howard became the wife of Mr. Carl Winfield Scott Roth fuas. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Robert Bell, Rector of All Saints Memorial church, of Williams port. The decorations at the church and home were beautiful.

Miss Encie Howard, of this place, acted as one of the bride's maids. "Quincy Adams Sawyer" Repeat ing its Success. The phenomenal success of the book play, "Quincy Adams Sawyer," is re peatiug itself again this season when crowded houses greet its every ap pearance. This popularity is attributed to the proceeding fame of the book that extended from ocean to ocean, and that the play is in itself the most genuine piece of rural life ever given to lover of bucolic flrama. The simple pure charm of the book is distinctly preserved in the play. The characters are drawn so close to life that it requires an eifort to be con vinced that they are not real. They are just such types as are found in every New England village and port rayed by actors who are in perfect sympathy with their roles. In fact, it is a case of human nature appealing to human nature. Another thing that people evidently appreciate is not having their pleasure of the artistic simplenesa of the play marred by mawkish scenes and sloshy incidents. The amusing scenes—and those are what the play is made up of mainly—contain just wholesome, good nature, compelling laugh after laugh, and the sentimental parts consist of that kind of refined pathos that plays upon the heart strings with no dis cordant note. The company representing this beautiful play carries with it all the equipments including four large sets of scenery, built especially for the pro duction, all the lightning effects and all the properties. Theatre goers are looking forward to the treat in store for them when the play comes to the Emporium Opera House in the near future. How Different. Renovo was trimmed by Emporium on the former's grounds Saturday afternoon by the score of 5 to 2. It was an interesting and well played game throughout and attracted a fair sized crowd of spectators.—Ridgway Record. The base ball game Saturday after noon between Renovo and Emporium was largely attended but was very listless. The score was 5 to 2. Ray mond Friel pitched the last few in nings and held the visitors to no hita. —Renovo Cor. to Lock Haven Express. How different the above notices sound. It will be seen that the article from Renovo failed to say who won the game. The result of which no doubt made it listless from a Renovo point of view. Public Sale.

Railroad News. Prizes amounting to $5,400 were awarded to-day to Pennsylvania Rail road track supervisors and their as sistants who have excelled in their work during the past year. The prizes. Ave in number, were distributed at Harrisburg, Pa., at the close ofthe first day of the General Manager'e Annual inspection, on which, the General Manager is accompanied by his entire staff of oUlcers, including some 300 men in the operating department ol the Pennsylvania Railroad. The purpose in oflering these liberal premiums is to encourage those in charge of the tracks over which the bulk ofthe Company's passenger traine run, to keep their sections as free at possible from irregularities that cause jars and discomforts to the Company's patrons. To insure that the prizes shall be awarded upon accurate data, a con> mitee of maintenance of way officers goeaover the line every few weeks during the year, in a car attached tc one of the regular high-speed trains. Two glasses of water are placed on the sills of two rear windows and every spill of water is counted against the acore of the section of track over which the train is passing. To make the record even more accurate, an instru ment has been especially designed tc register every vibration of the car. either vertically or horizontally. T e smaller the amount of vibrat : in, the b«' l ;ter the track. dears Retires With $25,000,000. Richard W.
