TIONESTA, VA., DF.AVKR CIII.LEfiK AND MU8ICAI. IN8TI Tt'TK. Oimparativelr few are awnro of the maznituJo and beauty of the new buildings juet erected, of this institu tion, its complete appointment for educational purposes, and its superior facilities for imparting thorough in struction and home comforts to the pupils. The advanced views and de mands of the age, require the best fa cilities, and the most modern features in college structures, to train the youth of our laud. Light, ventilation and location of buildings; physical and social comforts, ton, are also important elements in presenting the claims of an institution. In all these respects Beaver Co I lego and Musical Institute is pre-eminent, and presents first-class attractions. For a score of years tli'u institution has been an educational center of in terest; Well located from the first, and with good, substantial buildings, it has steadily grown up from feeble ness to its present greatness. Ia early years its throes, to retain being, only served to develop its present vigor aud healthy condition. Iho honored head of the institution for so many years, and bis accomplished wife, were long engaged in this struggle for the mastery, and now they can well afford to feel some pride at its present standing in the bright galaxy -of educational in stitutions in this country. Its rapid growth, and demands for increased fa cilities, for several years, made addi tional buildings neceseary, aud finally led to the erection of the new struc ture just opened to the public. A mere outline of its proportions and excellences, is all that is possible now to give some idea of its superior claims, fur imparting an education equal to other institutions before the public. The structure stands upon the elevated plateau, or level, stretching along the entire rear part of the staid and high-toned town of Beaver, in a grove comprising five acres, affording ample room for physical exercise over its extensive walks, grassy lawns, etc. A portion of the building is five stories high. The style of the architecture is a happy combination of the English, Normandy and Italian. The full front acre is 180 and dentil 75 fact. The form of the pilasters or the brick work of the front, is tasteful and imposing. The cost of buildings and grounds is estimated at seventy-five thousand dol lars. The elegant new fence, in course of erection, show whole to admirable e fleet. Entering the dining hall, eighty feet long, upon the basement floor, the appointments' are of the nvt modern kind, tor serving and preparing the table comforts. Attach ed to this department, provision is al so made for heatiug the entire build ing, with washing facilities, and for furnishing hot and cold water, to the boarders' rooms. Rooms for the reci tation of classes are so arranged as to give method to the different depart ments of instruction, with furniture and other equipments of the most modem aud approved kind. These rooms are large, well lighted, and well ventilated. Provision is also made for congregating all of the pupils for gen eral rehearsal, independent of the beau tiful hall for public performances. Capacious rooms are provided and in practical use fur the Cabinet of Min erals, etc., Library, Art and College Society. All separate, roomy and well appointed. The main hall, for public performances, is a gem, and will ac commodate five hundred persons. The elegant tained glass wiudows, show to fine effect the "memorial" tokens of de parted worth. The rooms occupied by the boarding pupils are neat, roomy, nicely furnished, and well heated in cold weather, and so arranged as to give a cheerful appearance and healthy glow. In a word, the buildings and furniture indicate, that no expense has been spared to m&ite the college first class in all its equipments. A com fortable building has also bceu provi ded on the grounds of the President for the roalo students, who are imme diately under his supervision. The Board of Trustees have been managing their trust well, and have authorized President Taylor, and tho officers of the Board, to devise liberal things. Jus'.ice Aguew, of the 8u- fireme Court, President of Buard, has ong been a devoted friend of the Col lege, aud the Vice-1 resident, Kev John F. Dravo, has given considera ble supervision to the late improve ments, and also gave ten thousand dot- Ian towards tho uew buildings just erected. Secretary Weylaud aud Treasurer McCreery, also deserve lion orable mentiou. lion M. 8. Quay, Secretary of the Commonwealth, aud resident of Beaver, has been elected a trustee to fill a vancancy. With the openiog of the new Col lege year, the Faculty has been en I urged and embraces fourteen persons. President Taylor, in connection with the exacting duties of the general di rection of the College, is Professor of Moral Philosophy and Orcek. Prof. OCTOBER 29. 1873. Johannessen, recently placed in charge of the Musical Department, is a Nor wegian by birth, and has resided twelve years in Franco. He is an ac complished and skilful musician. His wile, a uative of if ranee, will teach French. Prof. Geo. V. Loomis, teach er of Latin, is a fine scholar, the son of President Loo'mis of Allegheny College. Miss Magee, the Preceptress, teacher ot Mental science and Ger man, has adorned her position for six years. Mrs. Dr. Taylor, in charge of Voice Culture and Vocal Music, is possessed of rare culture as a teacher and is a superb singer. Two assistants are employed in the musical depart ment, and fourteen pianos, including one grand Chickering, and a superior pipe orgau, are also in use. Among the new teachers we name, Mrs. Hurl but, teacher of painting and drawing, a superior artist and fur some time a resident of Philadelphia. We note with pleasure in this connection, that Mrs. Thomas, the wife of the late la mented Rev. A. II. Thomas, is the Matron, a position she will well adorn. The College year opens auspicously, the attendance being much larger than ever before, with prospects of many more students. Parents and guardiaus who intend to send their children or wards, will do well to have them en ter the classes at once. IKttsburgh Pa per. "ALL JUUHT !" Haw many of us hear the expression a doten times a week, and have it stick in the throat of at least half of them. It is getting to be a hypocritical appeud age of business and social intercourse.. A sponge goes behind the counter and cuts off a dime's worth of tobac co or cheese with an excuse that he wants a "sample," and the grocery man says "that's all right." A customer returns a pair of shoes, soiled and injured after half a day's wear, grunting, "they are too small," aud the merchant says "that's all right." A church member puts down his name for tweuty-five dollars to pay the preacher, and whan called on only gives ten dollars, with the remark that "times are too hard," aud the par Sou says, "that's all right. A loafer makes a regular practice of coming into a printing office and beg ging a copy of the paper, stating that "he just want to read it, ' and though the editiou is short, the editor groans with ghastly politeness and says "that's all right." An extravagant debtor tolls a pa tient creditor every time he meets bim that he "iuteuds to puy that account to-morrow, certaiu, anil the poor dun turns off with "that's all right." And so it goes. It's all wrong, and we say it's "all light," and by want of spirit and independence encourage la ziness, imposition, stinginess and every other sin. THE TACTICS OF WEUUfiD LIFE. Tact is the only reliable cement for friendship, engagements, and mar riages. It enables Laura to under stand how, after four hour's fasting, Charles loves ber none the less, but dinner more. It supports her in those lonely hours wbeu Charles yields him self up to that inexplicable fascina tion men find in the society of their own sex. It enables her to resigu ner- self to Charles' persistent ignoring of his slipper case, aud his determinate forgetting that boots were not primari ly designed as oruameuts for sitting rooms. It lays the blessed seal of si lence on her lips when Charles' do mestic reforms prove a dead failure. It is the happy faculty which teaches her, when Charles ejaculates, "I told you sol I might have known you wouldn't put those buttons on ;" or, "Of course their are no socks in my drawer. I never expect to find any thing where it ought to be" to blaud ly respond, "My dear, I am so glad I uever yet disappoiuted you. I always do just as you expect me to don't I?" A complicated case of conscience is reported in au Ohio newspaper. Sev enteen years ago a smart lad in ood county sold to a buyer of furs a black cat-skin with a mink's tail sewed to it, receiving for it 91.25, the value of a genuine mink-skin. Years passed on, as the story-teller says. The boy be came a man, a member of the chruch. But that cat-skin laid heavy on his soul, aud no peace for his troubled conscience could he bud until be hud refuuded, with interest the money of the swindled furrier. The rcpci'taiil man paid principal and iuterest, amounting to 83.70. But it appears that the dealer sold the skiu as that of a mink for $3. As he caunot find the purchaser restitution is impossible, and what ha can properly do with the S3. 70 it would take a pretty sharp casuist to determine. An exchange says: "When quiuiiie gives you a buzzing in the head, atop taking it." The same remark will apply to apple-jack. $2 PER ANNUM. A CANADIAN VIEW OF NEBItANKA. "Make former times shake hands with latier, And that which was before como after." These lines of Iludibras might well be penned by a British poet, for they satirize an infirmity to which the British seem especially prone. Thus, the London Encyclopedia, in an edi tion tinted 1843, though the title page is new vamped aud should read 1829, describes Cincinnati as "a post town in the north-west territory, and seven ty miles north of Georgetown, Ken tucky." Ho Dilke, in Greater Britain, remarks, that "the capital of Nebras ka has been fixed two hundred and fifty miles fruui the nearest settlement." And still more notable anachronism is thai of David Gardiner, who has just issued a pamphlet iu Ottawa, the capital of the New Dominion, with a view to check Canadian migration to Nebraska. But, writing in 1873, his main au thority regarding Nebraska is Fisher's Gazetteer, which wits copyrighted and published twenty years ago, iu 1853. There may have been a new title-page with other changes since, but every wird quoted by the Ottawa writer is found iu the earliest edition. Asking where and what is Nebraska? he an swers that it "reaches to Texas and Oregon," and yet "contains only 136, 700 miles," -that "its central portions are irreclaimable wilderness with scarcely an oasis," that "it is the great American Desert," yet that "little or nothing is knowu of its topography," aud that "it has never as yet received any white inhabitants ' except Iudiau. agents, soldiers and mirtsiouariW' Those Canadians who repose on Gar diner's gospel, how their implicit faith vanishes when they read the official re port of Nebraska population three years ago as 122,903, or learn that its orchards currii-d off the highest prize at a national pomological convention, that a million and a half acres of public land were there occupied dur ing last year, and that the homestead ers numbered one-seventh of all those settled on all the public domain. Talk no more af the play of Hamlet with the part of Hamlet left out, while a writer on Nebraska in 1873 ignores both the Union Pacific and the Bur lington and Missouri River railroads, the one forming the larger half of the world's grandest highway, and the other which was the first laud compa ny i hat nu de farms pay for themselves by granting long creitit, low iulercst, deterring all payment of principal for four years, aud cutting dowu prices 20 1t c nt. to all prompt tillers. Oil' the whole, (iardiners book is nest suited for circulation in that Egyptian section of llliuois, where in the last Presidential campaign the votes were all cast neither tor Grant nor yet fur Greeley, but for General Jackson. Pp.of. J. D. Butler. The returned Californiau of a good many years age pulled out of his pock et his perfumed bandanna handker chief and there aith a choice collection of doughnuts at a formal evening par tVj was iu a far pleasautei position than was recently a staid New Eng land Deacon. This gentleman on a late Sunday morning, having had fam ily prayers and partaken of the Mas sachusetts malutiual brown bread aud baked beans, put on his best coat, and clutching his five-year-old sou by thn hand walked as usual to the church of which he is a pillar. Seated in his accustomed pew the good man went geutly to sleep uuder ilia ministrations of the pulpit. Alas I while he thus peacefully slumbered his irreverent little boy began to divert himself by an exploration of the paternal pockets; aud the first thing be drew from those recesses was eight o' clubs. The wild horror of all the other Deacons and all the ancient maiden ladies of the congregation is a thing before which the imagination stands aghast. There is a droll story of how a man lust a wager iu Puehlo.Colorado. Step ping into a large liquor shop ho offered to bet ten to one thut he could, blind folded, tell the name of auy liiiuor or wine iu the house, or any mixture of liquors, by the taste t ml smell.

"Well, boys," he said, "you have got me. ll seems to me us it, years ago, I smirk something .if that kiud iu the Stales, but it was so long ago that 1 have en tirely forgotten it."

"Shall I cut this loiu af mutton saddlewise?" said a gentleman. "No," said uiie of his gueolo, "cut H bridle wise, tor then I may have, a chauce to get a bit iu my mouth." Rates of Advertising.

The approaching close of another year brings with It the occasion of re newed thanksgiving and acknowledge ment to the Almighty Ruler of tho uuivcica for the unnumbered mercies which he has bestuwed upon us. Abun dant harvests havo been among the re wards of iodustiy. With local excep tions, health has been among the bless ings enjoyed. Tranquilly at home, and peace with other nations Lave prevailed. Frugal industry is regain ing its merited recognition and its merited rewards gradually, but, under the Providence of God, surely, as trust, the nation is recovering from the lingering results of a dreadful civil strife. For these and all other mer cies vouchsafed it becomes us as a peo ple to return heartfelt and grateful acknowledgements, aud with our thauksgiving, we may unite in prayers for the cessation of local aud tempora- -t ry sufferings. I therefore, recommend that on Thursday, the 27th day of November next, the people meet in their respective places of worship to make their acknowledgement to Al mihgty God for His bounty and Ilia protection, and to olfer up praises for their continuance. - In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of tho Uuited States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington this 14th day of October, iu the year of our Lord 1873, and of the Indepen dence of the United States the ninty seventh. Signed by the President, U. S. Graht. Hamilton Fibit, Sec'y of State. A man in Detroit had about as live ly a time the other day as can wejl be imagined. Striking across lots to visit a neighbor, he had reached the mid dle of the Geld when he remembered that it contained a specially uncivil bull, and received tangible proof thero of in the shape of the bull himself charging towards him at a terrible rate. No tree was in reach, and tha fence was rods away. So in default of a better refuge, the man crept into a hollow log that lay in his path. The bull saw the man, saw the log, and to it transferred its attentions. The log was large but old and tender; and ev ery time the bull' hauled back and jumped for it, he covered himself with glory and clouds of bark and wood. Sometimes he whirled one end aqd then he gave the canter a heave, and then knocked a foot off the other end. When the man was nearly convinced of the approaching end of his exist ence, the neighbors reached the scece and he was saved. Anotuer articlb of common household ue BUPER8EDF.D. Asso ciated with the earlier recollections of a great many men and women is tho memory of the Bath brick and emery stone wherewith the knives and forks, and pans and kettles, and other kitch en artiles were at stated times "scoured up." That primitive mode prevails to-day in thousands of families who have never used Sapolio. But once let Sapolio be used for this purpose aud that housewife never wants Bath brick or emery stone any more. Sapo lio uot ouly scours off rust .and tar nish, it brightens, bestows a polish as brilliant as uew, aud does it in one tenth the time required by any other substauce. Sold everywhere. House keepers, try it. 30 32 A few nights since a sailor living iu a house on Muojoy, Maine, over which f lasses a telegraph wire, dreamed that le was on board ship, and that some of the ropes needed taughtning. He got up, went up on the roof of the house, and commenced pulling ou the wire. Finding he could not manage it alone he called to a shipmate who was sleeping with him. His criea awoke the man and he went up and discovered the other in bis perilous position. Taking hold of his leg to prevent his tailing, tho somnambulist was awakened, when, looking up and and seeing the stars, he thought sure he was on shipboard and again com menced hauling ou the wire. He was finally got dowu from his dangerous position without harm. A gentleman the other day saw his daughter dipping her little doll-baby's dress into u tin-cup and inquired ; "What are you doing, my daugh ter?" "I'm coleriug my doll's dresa red." "With what?" "Bier." " W hat put that foolish notion into y. ur head, child ? You can't color red with beer." "Yes, I can, pa, because ma said it was beer that made your nose red." And the man bad busiuess that re quired him down town immediately. The second cro, of corn this year is now in the roasting ear stage in Sauta Barbaru county, (.'al. j
