Clcmmens' City cornet band was in at-;
tendance during the evening and tendered i
the party a serenade, stating that they had j
come 'out in the storm for the special pur-
pose of pa3'ing their respects te Capt. j
Blickcndcrfer and his bride. 1
Ths banquet was set in two large room
down stairs, the tables being clc- j
gantly arranged and groaning under
the weight of delicacies and sub-
stantial spreads upon them. Pyramids of
ice creams, macaroons, liuit::, flowers I
and confections graced Hie beard the con- j
fectiens being furnished by Je.-;. It. Buyer
and the floral decorations by Harry A.
Schreycr. The banquctting continued j
from half-past seven o'clock until mid
night, at which hour the la-t of the guests
took leave, each one before retiring wish- j
ing many "happy returns te the 'bride
and groom.'" '
Letters of regret were received fi.un
many friends, especially these residing at
a distance, who were prevented by the!
snow-storm from being in attendance. ;
In this connection a brief sketch of Cap
tain Blickenderfcr's life will be of interest .
te his mairy friends. lie was born in Lititz
en the 17th of August, lf-OS, and received '
his education in the schools in that village.
Arriving at manhood, he went into the
cigar business in 1S30. In 1801 lie was '
married te Miss Elvina L. IJeiicI, of Naz- I
areth, Pa., who was bem en the 13th of J
March, 1S1. The wedding took place iu j
Nazareth en the 1st of February, 1331,
the officiating clergyman being Rev. Mr.
Herman, of the Moravian church, of that
place. The weather en the occasion of i
their wedding was very much like that
prevailing at the lime of their golden wed
ding. It was very cold and the ground
was covered with snow two feet ; the reads j
being blockaded with drifts, the wedding i
party' in their journey in sleighs irem
Nazareth te Bethlehem were often ob
liged te take te the fields and occasionally
drive ever the top of the fences, the snow
being covered with a crust that bore
the hei'se's weight. Capt. Blickcndcr
fer continued iu the cigar business
in Lititz until 181S. During Governer
Aveir's term of ollice he was commissioned
as captain of a volunteer company in
Lititz and commanded it for seven years.
In 1848 he took charge of a hotel in Litjfz
while the Lititz Springs hotel was being
builtj and next year took charge of a hotel
at Ncffsville, which he kept for one year.
In 1850 he came te Lancaster and took
charge of the Washington hotel, which oc
cupied the site en which the Farmers'
Northern market new stands. This
hotel he kept until 1803, when he moved
into his present residence, Ne. 314 North
Queen street, and has been in private life
Capt. Blickcndcrfur and wife arc the
parents of thirteen children, nine of whom
arc living, namely:
Ellen, the wife of Hen. I). II. Starbuck,
of Winsten, N. C; James, residing in
Louisville, cashier of the home ofliee of
the Southern Express Ce. ; William, the
well-known Lancaster grocer. North
Queen street ; Edward, residing in Harris-
burg ana employed as traveling salesman ;
Richard, proprietor of the Variety iron
works this city ; Mary, wife of Eiu'l
Wcidlcr. of Steny Creek mills, Berks coun
ty ; Jacob, engaged in the notion trade in
Salem, N. C. ; Harry, superintendent of
his brother's Variety iron works; and
Emma, the wife of Wesley Derwart.
Besides the nine living children there
are twenty-ene grandchildren, and three
great grandchildren, most of whom were
present at the "golden wedding."
Captain Blickcndcrfer and his wife were
born in Moravian settlements, reared in
the Moravian faith and have remained
throughout their lives consistent members
of the Moravian church, and we believe
all, or nearly all, their descendants held
te the same religious views. In politics
the captain has always been a staunch
Democrat, having voted for every" Deme
ci-atic candidate for president from the
time of Andrew Jacksen te that
of Winficld S. Hancock; and he
adds that he will continue te vote the
same ticket as long as he lives, though he
is by no means a blind partisan, and in the
selection of municipal officers votes for
the best men whsthcr they belong te his
own or the opposite party. In time past
he has been a member of city councils,
tax collector, and we believe has held some
ether miner offices, but never was an
office seeker, nor aspired te official honors.
He has always enjoyed the respect and
confidence of bis fellow-citizens, and the
love and affection of his children. Leng
may he and his excellent wife be spared te
enjoy the congratulations of their numer
ous friends, and the well wishes that were
showered upon them last eveuing.
Miss Amelia Diehl celebrated her
twenty-first birthday ou Monday evening
at the residence of her mother ou High
street. Quite a number of friends were
present, and a pleasant time was'had. Miss
Diehl and some of her guests entertained
the party with some excellent music. At a
late hour the festivities closed, all present
expressing their gratification, aud wishing
the young lady many happy returns.

ucr's broke through the ice while hauling
sand, but no serious results followed, ex
cept a geed wetting, for it was at a place
where the water is only about three feet
Digging sand from the ice-bound river
may be a matter of quandary te some, but
such is the case. The sand iu our vicinity
is of such geed quality that it has become
greatly in demand. Mr. S has been
shipping two car leads a day for about a
month, and as the demands exceeded his
supply, he has been compelled te cut the
ice and take it from beneath.
A valuable piece of ground, adjoining
the property of Mr. Henry Musser, was
sold lately by the estate of Henry Musscl
man deceased. It contains about an acre of
excellent meulding sand, and was bought
by Mr. Musselman from the old hollow
ware company when they closed up affairs,
for $1000 ; Jake Thuma bought it for $400.

tion at night, and general hilarity among
In our locality a great many people leek
forward te Candlemas day with much in
terest, because they believe that the state
of the weather en that day foretells its gen
eral condition for six wctfks ensuing. Sir
Themas Browne quotes a Latin distich ex
pressive of this idea, which is thus trans
lated in a popular Scotch rhyme :
' ircuudlemat day be dry ami fair,
The half e'wintcr's te ceme and malr ;
If Candlemas day be wet and foul.
The half 'winter's gane at Yule."
Many people profess te believe that the
groundhog or woodchuck, which has been
sleeping at the bottom of his hole,
comes out en Candlemas day te take a
leek at the sky. If it be cloudy, he stays
out and makes ready for the spring cam
paign,but if the sun is shining sufficiently te
enable him te see his shadow he instantly
returns te his hole, and takes another six
weeks' sleep, well knowing that wintry
weather will continue for that length of
time. Te-day the sun rose brightly with
the thermometer from 5 te 10 degrees be
low zero ; if the groundhog came out of
his hole he could net have failed te sce his
shadow, and te have hastened te his cesy
bed away down below the frost line ; but
perhaps lie couldn't get out ; the mouth
of his hole may have been blockaded with
two or three feet of snow ; and hence, as
he could net see his shadow, there
may be a possibility of recon
ciling the groundhog theory with
Prof. Vcnner's prophecy that February
will be a comparatively mild month. As
yet the groundhog has the best of the ar
gument, and is backed up iu his cold
weather doctrine by no less distinguished a
meteorologist than Prof. Mansil, of Reck
Island, 111., whose prediction of a great
storm ou the 1st of February has already
been verified and who also predicts that
the temperature of the entire month will
be considerably below the mean.
.St. .Jehn's Festival.
The festival and supper for the benefit
of the library or the Sunday school of St.
Jehn's Frce Episcopal church, given in
Roberts's hall last night, was very largely
attended notwithstanding the extreme
inclemency of the weather. The room is
very prettily decorated with flags, pic
tures, &c, and the several tables contain
ing flowers, confections and fancy articles
are tastefully arranged aud filled with a
great variety of useful, toothsome and
ornamental articles. Each table is under
charge of an efficient corps of ladies
who attend te the wants of their patrons.
The dining table is a large euc,
and was well patronized last night, ever
fifty guests sitting down te supper. The
menu was equal te that of the best Hetel,
consisting of roast turkey, roast bscf,
boiled beef, ham, tongue, oysters, in all
styles, coffee, and a great many ap
petizing side dishes. All or nearly all
the articles were donations for the geed of
the cause, se that the receipts were nearly
all clear profit. The festival will be con
tinued te-night, when, no doubt, there
will be a much larger attendance, as the
weather is pleasant aud the walking in
comparably better than it was last night.
The price of admission is only 10 cents, or,
including supper, 50 cents. v

COUilX OF COMMON I'LHAS.
L. J. Lindemutb vs. Hemy Shaub. ac
tion in replevin. In the year 1870 the
plaintiff' owned a bay horse worth SlOOatw!
defendant owned a gray inarc valued at
$40. The parties agreed te trade their
horses aud the plaintiff claimed that the
trade was with the express understanding
that the defendant; was te pay $l0 "beet"
and the borne was te be the property of the'
plaintiff" until the sum was paid. After
the defendant had the horse for a year it
was alleged that he paid no money, aud
the plaintiff issued a wiit of replevin and
took poscssien of the animal, which was
then in such bad condition, that the plain
tiff" traded him oft" for another horse and
gave $70 "beet."
The defense was that when the trade
was made there was no understanding te
the effect that the horse should remain the
property of the plaintiff". At one time the
defendant alleged that he gave $15 te the
plaintiff and afterwards worked for him te
the amount of $G9, and instead of owing
him money en the horse the plaintiff"
owed him. The jury rendered a verdict iu
favor of the defendant and assessed the
damages at $22. This verdict gives
Shaub the horse. Er.r.

ing (who owned and was in possession of
this property) for t?'J,00"5.e7. The prop
erty was levied upon and sold by the
sheriff te plaintiff, who obtained a deed
from the sheriff. Peter Dersheimcr was
in possession of the farm as tenant and
the action was brought against him te ob
tain possession of it. The court dockets,
&c., in support of the judgment, the exe
cution, sheriff's sale and conveyance, were
put in evidence. The plaintiff' here
The defense moved for a verdict iu their
favor en the ground that no title out of
the commonwealth had been shown nor
any in Herting.
ThCceurfc disallowed this motion and
the defense then moved for a non suit,
which was also refused.
The plaintiff then offered in evidence
the records te show that in 1830 Hiram
Hertins received a deed for this property
from Mary and Peter Andrews.
The defense again asked for a non-suit
ou the ground that no title had yet been
proven out of the commonwealth.
The court again refused this motion and
both parties asked for a verdict in their
favor. The court said it was necessary
for the plaintiff te show title out of the
commonwealth or out of the defendant.
Plaintiff then proceeded te show that the
defendant's title was out of Hiram
Herting by producing an assignment from
him te Themas Uaumgardner and the pur
chase of the properly at the assignee's
sale of nenry Miller for ITrs. Herting,
wife of Hiram Herting, aud the real de
fendant iu this action.
Te this the defense objected, but the ob
jection was overruled ; the proof of the
purchase and the conveyance by deed
from Baumgardner te Miller, and from
him te Catherine Hertiug, was shown.
The defense was that Dersheimcr was
j only the tenant of Mrs.Cathcrine Herting,
who owns the property wnich was sold te
Henry Milter by "Themas Baumgardner,
the assignee, in 1S72, and was en the same
day transferred by Miller te Mrs. Herting.

A Column et Het Water IOO Feet High.
North Mentana Kivcr Press.
One of the singnlar natural phenomena
known in this section of Mentana is the
formation of two geysers in the strip of
country known as the " Sag." about a
mile and a half from Mr. Patterson's
ranch, en the Shonkin. It was first
seen about a month age, but net
until lately has it assumed proportions
which constitute its wonderful formation.
It is situated in a small canyon running
out from the wall of rocks en the cast of
Alkali lake. Twe geysers have appeared,
one of them being of monster proportions,
throwing up a column of het witter and
steam ever one hundred . feet high,
the ether spouting about fifty feet, but
with a larger proportion of water ; di
ameter, about four inches. They are inter
mittent in character and are active during
the morning hours, about 8 or 9 o'clock.
The formation of the country is a sand
stone and gneiss and has all the appear
ance of being an ancient river bed. What
has produced this curious phenomenon it
is, of course, only useless te speculate, as
there is no cvidence of ancient volcanic
activity and no hypethesircan be formed
which will account for it.
THE CUARITT BAIX
In Philadelphia Last Sight.
Three thousand people attended it and
$12,000 or $15,000 were realized for charit
able purposes. The Heral decorations
were of the most elaborate character, ren
dering the handseme interior even mere
brilliant than it was en the occasion of the
memorable reception te the Grand Duke
Alexis, 'ine doers leading from the outer
corridor te the inner were arched and fes
tooned with evergreens sprinkled with red
aud white camellia japonicas. In the open
space between the doers steed towering
clumps of evergreens, which added a som sem
bre, yet beautiful effect te the decorations.
On cither side of the handsome mirror in the
inner lobby was artistic pedestal support
ing an ornamental basket of blooming
azaleas. Te the right and left of the mirror
loomed up the stately branches of twenty
different varieties of palms and
ferns, beneath which the most fragrant
flowers bloomed in gay confusion.
The music stand at the cast end of the in
terior was almost wholly lest te sight in a
semi-circle of foliage plants and "sweetly
breathing exotics. Majestic aricas, white
capped pampas grass, towering latanias
and bread-leaved caladiums overspread a
perfect Paradise of royal poinsettas and
camellias of varied hues. Above this rare
scene was the first balcony, which pre
sented a face of beauty. Smilax festoons
took a serpentine course and were caught
up at intervals by clusters of blooming car
nations. Beneath each festoon was a star
composed of red ami white rosebuds and
carnations, and suspended te the balcony
by smilax were lift ecu glebes of evergreen
mingled with a profusion of camellias
carnations, bigneuias and rosebuds.
The proscenium boxes were profusely
festooned with smilax attached with carna
tions andresebuds, before which were sitsi
pendcdgorgceusglobcsof blooming flowers.
Directly ever the stage was "Charity"
in carnations. Frem the proscenium boxes
the scene receded into one of the rarest
beauty. On cither side of the stage arese
the proud heads of ever fifty different
varieties of the palm species, latanias
