Mellor, secretary, and Miss Fannie Beach, treasurer. The attendance was good. Mrs. Dr. Cary Thomas and Mrs. John Thomas, of Baltimore, addressed the meeting, and were listened to attentively. Mrs. Dr. Thomas made a good impression, and her manner showed her whole heart in the work. A religious revival is now in progress at the M. E. Church, Freedom, which is well attended and promises success. The Freedom M. E. Church Sabbath School gave a picnic on Wednesday in J.

The musical entertainment held at Glen i Rock last Saturday was successful. While i the Glen Rock Silver Cornet Band played ; brilliant overtures at the ball all the bands j assembled to parade the streets. The proces- j sion was headed by the (Tien Rock Silver Cornet Band, then followed Bonair and Lo gansville bands. After parading all the streets they marched to the grove. Andrew Shaw, the marshal of the day, addressed the audi ence briefly. Dr. Yost represented the Lo gansville Band by a few introductory remarks, followed by music alternately by the bands. Dinner was next on the programme —pre- pared in the grove for the bands and others who were willing to pay 25 cents. After din- j ner the Shrewsbury Band arrived, which was escorted to the grove by the Glen Rock Band. The Bonair Hand was called upon the stand and played five pieces, followed by the Lo gansvillc and Shrewsbury bunds, each playing a few selections. N. Z. Seitz delivered an oration on music, which was quite effective. AI. Snyder, of Logansville, entertained the audience by playing a picolo solo. After ward lie played the “Mocking Bird,” which proved his skill as a performer on the picolo. The four bands were then united and played the following pieces under the direction of Prof. Joseph Di.se: Castlewood Quickstep, General Henderson’s Quickstep, Company 1) Quickstep, and By-and-by Quickstep. The bands varied in their time from 20 to 24 beats in a quarter of a minute, according to the judges’ decision, N. Z. Seitz and J. H. L. Boyer.

At the meeting of the School Board on [ 1 Monday last, four of the board were present. . | On motion, an order was adopted that, if ! sufficient funds are available, till bills of ex pense which shall have been passed and au dited before the last day of September, shall ■ be paid in this month, with which this finan , cial year closes. ; Alembers reported colored schools opened, or to be opened, as follows: —Dr. Reindollar, one, —Dr. Crawford, one, —Air. Prugh, one — and President Reese, one. Air. Zollickoffer, who was necessarily absent, will have one, perhaps two or more colored schools to report. There may possibly be others, should necessi ty for them appear. The following, in reference to a Carroll , j County teacher of many years’ experience, was unanimously adopted : To the State Board of Education of -Maryland: Gentlemen: —Whereas, Mr. Daniel Ebaugh, ! a successful teacher of County, ex j presses a desire to possess a Life Certificate, it is ordered by this Board that he be recom - mended to your favorable consideration for the same, we being fully assured that Air. Ebaugh is clothed with the requisite qualifi cations. The surveyor who had been employed for the purpose, reported that he had established the boundaries of the school ground at Alah ! lon’s, No. 11, in the 4th election district. The Treasurer receipted for $46 of the SSO collected of the Taneytown Ground Rents, the : difference having been deducted for commis ! sions in the hands of the collector. Air. Prugh presented an application for a colored school at Eldersburg, but it had to be postponed. On the nomination by President Reese, Dr. J. P. Summers was appointed a trustee, to fill the vacancy made at Warfieldsburg by the | decease of the late Joshua Sellman. The use of public school property for other than public school purposes, was again dis ! cussed, and finally all such applications were referred to the discretion respectively of each school commissioner chiefly concerned, on his responsibility, who will, at the next subse quent meeting thereafter, report each case of such use to the Board, whereby all proper action can be approved, whether it be to ac commodate a Sunday School or an election, the latter of which occasioned the discussion. Granted, of course. A kind message was brought from Mr. Zol lickoffer, to account for his unavoidable ab sence, and to say that young Mr. Earnest Stouffer is an applicant for a County scholar ship in W. M. College. This was unanimous- I ly approved, and the application was referred I back to Ah-. Z., with authority to arrange it to | suit his own views, taking care, however, that • any action which he shall take on the appli j cation shall not conflict with the arrangement ; previously made by the full Board further than unexpected and unprovided for changes shall require. Mr. James Rinker, of Carrollton Station, again appeared in the interest of parties who have petitioned for changes so as to bring school facilities within their reach, and to render them more convenient to all concerned; but no action on Air. Rinker’s proposal could then properly be taken. 1 The Board adjourned to meet on Monday, the Ist day of October. Toiirnnniont at Woodatock.

A AA'estminster sportsman having shot a 1 gray squirrel, conceived the idea of having j ! some fun at the expense of two others who j are fond of bagging game. He had the 1 squirrel skinned and the hide stuffed with cot | ton. A few da3 r s ago it was placed in a large | tree in Col. Longwell’s woods. The two | sportsmen —one a jeweler and the other a j former grain, fertilizer and grocery dealer — ; the same evening were invited to go out shoot ing. Armed with jajuns and ammunition the i trio started out. They had been in the woods • but a short time when the stuffed squirrel was | spied way up in a tree out on a limb. One I blazed away. The squirrel was still in the ! same position. Then shot after shot from both of the sportsmen followed. The fur flew, and finally a piece of the cotton with which it was stuffed was knocked out, and then the joke ! was discovered. The joke was perpetrated ! by the gentleman who several years ago wasted | a ton, more or less, of powder and shot on a large iron frog which had been placed where he would be certain to observe it, whilst gunning ’ ! for frogs. He is even now. Items from Near Manchester. The celebration at St. John’s (or Leister’s) was well attended on Saturday last. There was good speaking, very good music and good behavior; but the most amusing thing we saw was a young man and his lady from Pleasant Mill, York county, Pa. They put on more airs than all the rest of the people there. The young Aliss must have thought she was somebody, but to my eyes there were more better looking girls in the old Barrens than she was. If she was the best Pleasant Mill can afford, we would not like to see the worst. Pennsylvania girls must not come to Alary land with their tra-da-lal ha-ha’s. Corn is ripening very fast.

A Magnificent Family Bible. The National Publishing Company, of PhiUdcl- I phia, Chicago, Si. Louis ami Atlanta, arc doing a good work in this community by circulating among our people their magnificent Pictorial Famil> Bibles. This is one of the most superb editions we hare ever seen. The binding is elegant, tasteful and substantial, and the press work is done in the I best style. Being determined that their Bibles shall not be surpassed by any other edition in print, the pub lishers have added to it an abridgement of Dr. m. Smith’s great Dictionary of the Bible. This is a complete book in itself, and would make an octavo volume of over six hundred pages. Its reputation as the best Bible Dictionary is-world-wide, and each subscriber to this Bible thus obtains it free. Another prominent feature is a History of all the Religious Denominations of the World. These ac counts are clear and comprehensive,and are full of valuable information. An accurate and detailed description of the Holy Land is given, followed by an interesting descrip tion of Jerusalem '.nd its sacred places. The Life of the Saviour and the Lives of the Apostles are also given at considerable length, and in such a manner as to be of great service to every reader of the Bible. The Wanderings of the Israelites in the Wilderness arc related, and the Tabernacle and Temple are de scribed with great minuteness. Another feature is a series of Scripture illustrations, remarkable for its completeness. It era braces a series of comprehen sive descriptions of the Manners and Customs of the Nations of the Ancient World, of Biblical An tiquities, Scenery, Natural History, etc., etc. Then follow a large number of chronological and other valuable tables, designed to promote and facilitate the study of the Sacred Scriptures. So full and complete is the additional matter of this magnificent edition of the Scriptures, that the most [ careful student of God’s word, the most exacting I seeker after truth, will find all his wants supplied in this single volume. The book is magnificently illustrated. It contains over 2,£00 fine engravings, many of which are by the great artist, Gustave Dore. These engravings are genuine works of art, and were made at a cost of over 330,000. Between the Apocrypha and the New Testament is a beautifully lithographed marriage certificate, which makes this Bible an especially appropriate wedding present. This is followed by a handsome Family Record, consisting of four quarto pages, finely lithographed. At the end of the volume is a photograph album, with spaces for sixteen por traits. The National Publishing Company’s Bibles are published in German also. We cordially commend this Bible to our readers. The price is astonishingly low, and within the reach of all. It is sold by subscription only, and Mr. J. H. Jeffery, who is the authorized agent for this section, is now canvassing for it. For the Democratic Adrocate. Messrs. Editors of the Advocate : When the teacher of No. 4 Central Hall School was turned down to gratify the petty spite of a certain official, he did not act the craven im becile, and beg with tears in his eyes to be kept in the position on the plea of poverty. Though it was so late in the season that he could not get another school, he remained quiet, until some weeks after he heard of a foul-mouth slander used in getting him out. When the trustees of his school were ap proached, they could not or would not give him the author, but assured said teacher that it did not come from the pupils or teachers of Central Hall School, where he had taught for two years. He might still be at a loss to know if “Demonstrate” had not demonstrated that he is the author of it. We feel gratified that our association with Central Hall can put the lie to so foul-mouth a slander. We have a remedy in our courts of law for such foul-mouth slanderers, if it were not for the old saying of sue a beggar and catch a louse. “Demonstrato” must remember that the acts of public officers are alwaj's open to crit icism, especially when their official positions are used for base purposes. He should also learn to be careful how he “turned up” things, as they may not be as agreeable as the “turning down.” It would be a pleasure to have a candid discussion of our public school system, which we all must admit is behind other systems of the state. We know the columns of our most worthy Advocate would be open to such discussions at all times, es pecially for the benefit of Public Schools. The Father of Forty-two Children. —The man who was actual father of more children than any other man in this country was killed on Wednesday at Lancaster, Pa., by being struck by a train. He lived in Reading, Pa., for many years. His name was John Heff- I ner, aged 67, a ragpicker by occupation. He | was the father of forty-two children. He was ] born in Wurtemberg. He was first married | when twenty-five years of age, in Germany, in ; 1840. His wife bore him seventeen children I in eight years by twins and triplets, and she died. The eldest child was seven years of age. In 1849 Heffner took his second wife, and she bore him twins ever}' year for five years. This wife lived nine years. Heffner was now the father of thirty-two children, twelve of whom had died. He came to Amer ica in 1857, and married his third wife in 1858. She bore him ten more children by single births. But five of these children and the ! third wife survive him. The house of John Everts, at Riverton, Ills., was burned on Thursday. Mrs. Phoebe Hoyland, mother of Mrs. Everts, 68 years old, and two children of Mrs. Everts, a boy aged 4 and a babe, were burned to death. MARRIED.

'yy'B DESIRE TO CALL THE Thoughtful attention of farmers to the supe rior merits of ORCHILLA GUANO AS A FERTILIZER FOR WHEAT and GRASS. The advantages resulting from its use are not only an increased yield, but the perma i nent improvement of the soil from the abun ; dant growth of grass which is sure to follow. ORCHILLA ils no new thing. For eighteen years it has been undergoing trial, and well has it stood I the test. At first its progress to favor was ! naturally slow; but merit will, sooner or later, have its reward, and now its sales every year are largely increased over those of the pre ceding year, and the friends of its early days are its best friends now. It has been used extensively in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia, and from its abun | dant success everywhere, we are justified in recommending it to you as being well adapted jto your soils. No fertilizer for your use has had such unvarying success and continued popularity. Some of the largest and best ' farmers in these three states use it almost ex clusively. It is Successful, because it is Nature’s own provision for her exhausted fields. It is Low Priced, because we have none j of the expense of manufacturers, and, with* i out regard to its high commercial value, we base its price solely upon its actual cost to import. ’ We refer you below to some of the farmers i who have used it, and ask you to enquire of ‘ j them as to its merits. i , I Wooldridge, Travers & Co., IMPORTERS, 64 Buchanan's Wharf, : ; Baltimore, Mu. SAMUEL J. HOPKINS & BRO., Colesville, Montgomery county, Md., wrote, March 7th, i 1883: —“Some nine years ago we bought a tract of land, about four miles from Sandy Springs. It was very poor land, covered with scrubby pines. We cleared it and applied manure, which we hauled from Washington, every year up to 1880. This involved a great deal of labor, trouble and expense, and that year, hearing of the remarkable success of Orchilla Guano in other sections, and its low price, we concluded to try it. We put in a i crop of rye with it, and had splendid results. The next year we used four tons of it. Before the crop was made we sold the place, but the rye and grass which followed grew so rank that the new owner complained he could not cut it. We then bought our present home, near Colesville, where we continue to use Or- I chilla, and the grain and grass we have been I growing from its use are as fine as can be found. We also applied Orchilla Guano in 1880 on the farm of Mrs. Richardson, which adjoined ours. We there applied 400 pounds of Orchilla to the acre; it cost §25 per ton. Beside it we applied Peruvian Guano at the rate of 600 pounds to the acre; it cost $52 per : ton. At harvest the straw from the Peruvian was about six inches higher than that from the Orchilla, but it did not yield one grain more rye. In our judgment Orchilla Guano is as good a fertilizer as any other we know j of, and costs much less, and we think it suits ! our Montgomery county lands.” J. C. BRUBAKER, Uniontown, Carroll Co., Md., April 26, 1882, says: “I used 300 pounds Orchilla Guano to the acre broad cast, or put on with a fertilizer drill before planting, and I had the best crop of corn in this section. It kept green during the drought and made twelve barrels to the acre. I shall continue to use it.” CHARLES M. KING, Damascus, Mont gomery Co., Md., July 24, 1883, says: “I have been using Orchilia Guano for a number of years. I formerly used a good deal of A. A. Mexican, and when that could no longer be had genuine, I was induced to try Orchilla. I soon found it had remarkable virtue, and have used it ever since, when I could get it. Its effects show plainly on my farm. Last year it made me twenty-seven bushels of wheat where I only had twelve before; and on that field now stands clover over three feet high ! It made me fourteen barrels of corn to the acre last year, where I could only raise seven or eight before. I tried some this spring, by sowing it in February, as is recommended, and letting it lie till ready to plough and put in corn, and where I put it any one can see i the corn is greener and stronger. lam sat ; isfied Orchilla is a valuable improver of the ! soil, and now that I can get it at Mt. Airy, at low freight, I will use more of it than ever. I It is sometimes slow, but it is sure.” WM. C. SATTERSFIELU, Greensboro’, I Caroline Co., Md., August 1, 1883, says: “I I have been using Orchilla Guano for fifteen I years largely. I have frequently tried other 1 fertilizers, but fell back on Orchilla. I be | lieve it a good, permanent improver of poor lands.” JOHN M. SMITH, Sandy Springs, Mont i gomery Co., Md., August 1, 1882, says: “I i have used Orchilla Guano on a barren hill j side, the soil being so washed off as to leave j the ground pretty much clear of signs of veg ■! etation. It brought pretty fair wheat, and | where there was any soil I find the timothy | and clover well set, satisfying me there is vir- I tue in it. I purpose using it again.” WASHINGTON D. WATERS, Goshen, Montgomery Co., Md., July 3, says: “Or chilla seems to have given general satisfaction in this neighborhood. My wheat is better i than I have had for along time.” . JESSE W. DOWNS, Dayton, Howard Co., Md., June 16, 1883, writes; “I have used Or chilla Guano for the past four seasons on wheat, corn, rye and potatoes, and find it equal to any high-priced fertilizer that I have used within the past ten years. On good land it makes fine crops at once, and on thin lands, I have watched its action carefully, and I can say with truthfulness that it is a sure and permanent improver of the soil. It certainly will make ‘poor land rich.’ I am sorry I did not get hold of it long ago. All who have used it in this neighborhood speak well of it, and will use it again this fall.” AGENTS: C. S.
