A (;om; to hoi si.kllpim;. 2- For several days S. W. Kirk, F.sj., bus been referred to by the married ladies of West Water street in their husbands' presence, as the model litis band of the village. Attorney Kirk has just commenced housekeeping and like all new beginners is very cnthusi iistio. In his present frame of mind ho would much prefer putting up' an obstinate tove-pipe to ucccpting a lib cral fee; sinking nnd tacking down carpet is Midi an apparent luxury as would make him forego a baii(uet, and the other Innumerable things that the common herd of husbands (.'fowl at- and speak of in unpretty terms are looked upon by hint as mere airy tri (les tlm doing of which only adds to his felicity. We hope this will keep going on and on have the gift of continuance- hut we fear it will be like the measles, chicken-pox and similar outbreaks that one catches but once in a lifetime. Seriously, we trust there will always be a cricket singing on his hearth. BI6 COVE. ACC1DF.NTTO J.S. LTl LMII.LF.R. We regret to learn that Jacob S.

Findley Kendall made a Hying visit to his home in the Cove, ar riving on Friday evening and leav ing for Lawrence county Wednes day morning. Thursday of last week will long bo remembered by a host of peo ple as one of tho most pleasant days of their lives. As morning ditwued it was not with the bright est prospect of a nice day. The sun wore a dark cloudy veil, the heavens seemed to have gone in mourning, and four was entertain ed by many that it would shed tears in the form of rain-drops before tho day had fulfilled its mission and gone to rest behind the mountains of eternity. Nev ertheless, before nine o'clock peo ple were seen wending their wtty to the mansion of James G. Ken dall, one of Pig Cove's most pros perous farmers, to witness tho marriage of one of his daughters. In half an hour the roads that led (apparently) from the fourcoruers of the earth, were lined with car riages and buggies all bound for tho samo placo. Tho guests all received a hearty welcome. Py ):").") all had assembled in the large parlors. Tho rooms were beautifully decorated with vines and golden tinted forest leaves. Tho window shutters were closed nnd tho lights turned on. Tho relatives of the groom elect stood on one side of the room while the relatives of tho other party in the contract occupied tho opposite side. At tho appointed hour, ten o'clock, "quietness reigned su promo" as slow, solemn steps were heard coming from the hall. Messrs. James 11. Kendall and Thomas McDowell, followed by Misses Mary II. Kendall and Mary McDowell, entered the room and took their places with tho friends; then came the lady who was yet Miss Laura Logan Kendall, lean ing on the arm of her alliance, William Peutly McDowell. She was attired in a beautiful gown of white organdie, trimmed in nar row ru flies edged with satin rib bon, and she carried a largo bo rpuet of roses. She was quite composed and fhe looked very sweet and lovely. Mr. McDowell wore the conventional black. His countenance betrayed tho su preme happiness of his heart. They stood under a handsomely decorated bell which was suspend ed from, tho ceiling. A voice was now heard breaking the spell of profound silence, it was the voice of Rev. J. G. Rose, (Presbyteriau) of Mercersburg, imploring divine guidance and blessiugou the hap py young couple, Kev. S. P. Houstou,(Associato Presbyterian) of tho Cove, spoko with groat ear nestness to tho couplo that was before him; and when ho present ed the marriage vows, they were accepted by , both with clear, strong voices that were distinctly heard by tho whole avtdieuce, say ing, ' I do," Our thoughts wore again led heavenward by Kev. J. Grove, (United Presbyteriau) of McCoiinellsburg, who closed the ceremony with prayer. At its close a great "Amen" from the Father above seemed to have fall en upon tho happy pair. Kev. Houston now stepping to the side of the groom, introduced to the audience Mr. and Mrs. McDowell, whom God had just made man and wife. Everybody stood in excited a wo throughout the en tire ceremony, which was very ! beautiful. After the congratulations were offered the guests were ushered I out to the dining room and seat ed at a bountifully spread table, ,. i, ...... i ti in i r ii (-tiiiiii wwti.-, .iiitiit-i tl served -the Kind that our hostess, Mrs. J. G. Kendall, knows how to prepare for a hundred and twen ty guests. This included quite a number of friends from Franklin county and Philadelphia. When the bridai party had partaken of the dinner, tho bride next appear ed in a brown traveling suit as they passed out to tho carriage in waiting, amid showers of rice and shouts of laughter. For some time the sun had boon try ing to peep through its veil, but now the clouds were dispelled and the sun was shiningin all its glory on thein as they sprang into the surrey and drove away. Morrow Kendall and Miss Nell Johuston escorted them to Fort Loudon where they boarded the fl o'clock train for llarri.sburg. They will go to Washington, I). C, thence to Philadelphia to visit the groom's sister, Mrs. Slayma ker.iiud other friends, and return by tho 2-1 tli for tho reception giv en by his mother. Tho bride's trousseau was both elegant and elaborate. Their presents were beautiful and useful as well as very numer ous. They c:a mo from different parts of.Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. It is to bo hoped that as they make their voyage on the ocean of life, they may pass over its bil lows of troubie as easily as they journeyed across tho mountain. AT REST. Aunt Mollie lleue. Death of Well Known Woman. TFRRIHLF, ACCIDFNT. Scalp ami Hair Torn From the II cud of a Little Girl. Last Saturday afternoon Clara, the l()-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George. Hixson, of Ein maville, this county, was the victim of a most horrible and heart-rending accident. Mr. Hixson owns and operates a steam grist mill at Emmaville. An iron shaft about two inches in dia motor and several feet long connects the engine with the mill pro tor. Tlijs shaft, crossing tho pathway leading to and from the mill, it wits customary for Mr. Hixson and tho children to pass under it. As Clara was passing under tho shaft her hair, which was plaited, by some moans caught and wrapped around the shaft, which was running at tho rate of seven hundred revolutions a minute. Almost instantly the child was hurled around in the air and thrown several feet away. Sho jumped up and, running around the mill screaming, at tracted thoattentiou of her lather, who was standing at the door in the second story , of tho mill. When his eyes beheld the ghast ly spectacle, without a moment's hesitation ho jumped to the ground and clasped his little daughter in his arms and carried her into tho house, when ho dis covered that tho entire scalp was torn from her head, one ear sev ered and tho skin of the larger part of tho face and nose terribly lascerated. While little hope is entertained for tho recovery of tho child, still, wo are informed, sho remains perfectly conscious, and o'nduros tho pain and suffering w ith tho patience of ono more advanced in years. Universal sympathy goes out to tho littlo ono and to the griof-Ktrickou parents. It Is with feelings of deepest sorrow that we received tho death of Mrs. Mary Pittman liege, wliUh occurred ut her home near lackey's Station, Franklin county, Pa., on Friday even gin, October LI. The deceased was the daughter of Joseph Pittman of Timber Itidge, Pultun county, and Ihe wife of the lute John Ilegu of Ayr touimhip. Her age was seventy-four years and right months and she is survived by one sister, Mrs. Cieorgu Morton, of 1 iclfusl township. Mrs. I lege was the mother of nine children, six of whom survive her, l!ev. Jacob ltasore, of Iowa; Mrs. John Myers, of Little Cove, and Miss Lottie liasore, at home childr.in of a former husband, Mr. Daniel Husore, ami .Mrs. Tobias C Inzer, of Webster Mills, and Joseph und Harmon liege of Franklin county children of u later marriage with Mr. John liege. Mrs. liege was in her usual health until the Sunday preceding her death, which occurred from hernia from which she had sulTcrcd for many years. She was buried in the I'nion Ceme tery on Sabbath afternoon. Klder C. L. Funk olllciuting. l'ntil within a few years, the home of Mrs. liege, or "Aunt Mollie" as she was affectionately, culled, was in the "Corner," although few women were more extensively and favorably known throughout the county. She was a life-long member of the liaptist church und by close study, at tained a wonderful knowledge of the Hible. To her husband she was a faithful wife und wise counselor to her chil dren a loving und self-sacrillcing mother-pruet icing the severest self denial for their educational advance ment. As u neighbor, she gave of herself most ungrudgingly, never un heeding tho cull day or night, to com fort the sick, or relieve the sutTering oft hues .tiiking the place of a physician until he could arrive. . Her feet run on willing errands, and her hands did cheerful service in hum blest places, through love to Christ und his helpless poor cheerful und witty in conversation -a good talker and possessing a remarkable memory. She hud a good fund of Information, and could recall with precision the lo cul happenings of almost three-quarters of a century. We extend to her children our ten derest sympathy in this great loss of their mother, who was, in truth, one of nuture's noble women, for scurcely do we thul in one person so many uil miruble truits of character so harmo niously combined.
