It Is Humored TtuU After a Bit No Collar Will Be template Without a Una of White. . The advance guard of the white collar arrived some time ago in the little lace-trimmed muslin tabs, and the universal resumption of the old fashioned linen collar itself seems Imminent. It has already encircled necks illus trious in the realm of fashion, and it may be taken for granted that it has come to stay. One docs not need to be venerable to remember the time when a gown ungarnlshed by a line of white at the throat was regarded as incomplete, and to be seen in a ' -negligee equal to that of the collar his man to-day. A touch of white about the throat is universally becoming, and when the edict of banishment was first de creed women rebelled and vowed . they would never succumb to a fash ion so ugly. But it is a well-known fact, so in explicable otherwise that psycholo gical influence must be inferred, that whatever is the fashion looks well. and whatever ceases to be the fash- on looks ugly, regardless of intrinsi c merits.

Following Which Adrtrennes Were Made by Kev. J)r. Mlllmlli v. Ir. ItlKKN Mr. Oenrg-e H. Decker, Jtov. Mr. Hllles ple and Hon. W. K. MrCnrtnlrk. Tills society which wns organized to preserve and perpetuate the early history of this valley, and to rescue from the mists of oblivion the fust farting facts regarding its first in habitants held its nnnunl meeting Inst Saturday. There were 62 pre sent at the dinner, which is repre sented as beingin every respect a credit, to Landlord Wickham audits aftermath of speeches of more than usual richness in eloquence and abil ity. At the conclusion of the dinner Dr. Mills the honored President of the society made an introductory ad dress of greeting and welcome, eu logizing the character of Washing ton and touching on the objects of the society. He then introduced Geo. II. Docker, of Middletown, who eu logized Orange county by relating the following story. At a protracted meeting once in Amity, this county, the minister asked all who wanted to go to heaven to rise on their feet. All arose except one old man. He next asked all who desired to go the other place to rise ;none stood tip, not even the old man. After the meeting the minister took him aside and said : When I asked those who wanted to go to heaven to stand up, you re mained seated. When I requested those who preferred the other place to arise, vou still remained seated. What did you menn? please explain yourself. " Well, sir " replied the old man, Amity is good enough for me. He concluded by giving as a toast : My Country Right or Wrong, My Country." Rev. Dr. Riggs was then intro duced and delivered an eloquent ad dress in which he spoke of our popu lation, wealth and intellectual en lightenment and said that from all this there should be some doflnite moral outcome, that we should not merely contemplate with pride our past achievement, and present con dition. We are rich in resources, and have no enormous standing armies to maintain. But there is room for improvement. Greatness is a means, not an end, an instru ment to be used by us for the ad vancement of God's kingdom on earth. Our greatness should bo fof service, not for show. He also said that we should think whether; we have something to do in the world. Washington's advice to the country to avoid entangling foreign alliances was wise at the time and under the circumstances it , was given. We had then but tliree millions of peo ple, and this weakness rendered the policy of non-intorforonco neces sary. Those conditions are greatly changed. We now ha ve a popula tion of over sixty millions.aud great nowerand resources. It is time to qualify the position Wellington took, and to notify the world that Jonathan has reached his majority. Rev. Geo. E. Gillespie followed in a happy vein in a brief speech. Hon W. E. McCormick then niado a cha- tacterestio address which was the closing speech. A number of out of town guests were present these from Pike county being Prothonotary J. C. Westbrook.Dr. H. E. Emerson.of Milford.and Charles Marvin, Frank Marvin, Rev.

His grandfather Jabez Rockwell was a soldier in the army of the Re volution and lies buried in Honesdale Pa. There are three living children in this family of a revolutionary soldier.

' An Old Newspaper. , Through the courtesy of its owner Thos. Mimwaring of Matamoras, we were shown an old copy of the " Bos ton Gazette and County Journal " published in Boston March 12th 1770. It contains an account of a meeting of freeholders and other inhabitants of tho town of Roxburg, legally as sembled on Monday the 6th March 1770,tho inhabitants taking into con sideration a clause in the warrant for calling the meeting viz, and to know the minds of the town whether they will do anything to strengthen the Hands of the merchants in the Now Importation agreement. Among the Resolutions is one. Tha t we will not drink or purchase any foreign Tea however imported until a general Importation of British goods shall take place.

Ills rtiltatlrlnhls En-Wife Trying tn Re cover Rack Alimony. ,J Feb. 21 Mrs., Edith Allen of Phil adelphia, who obtained a divorce from Vftndi-rbilt Allen ' in 1SR7 brought action to-day to recover 1 S00 bnck alimony. Hlio was to re ceive 11000 n year. Allen is In rocept of $2400, a year, the income of a trust fund of 10.000. Justice Truax de- nied a motion to dismiss the com plaint. ' Mrs. Allen said that Mr. Allen had iwid her nearly $x000, but that she had rweived nothing since.' 1892. Allen is. a grandson of Commodore Vanderbilt. He married for the third time in 1892. Philadelphia Press. We print the above to correct the statement made In the newspapers that tho difficulty is with Col. Allen's present wife who wns Miss Edith Mott. This impression is totally un founded, and probably arises from the fact that tho wife bringing the suit, from whom ho wns divorced, is also named Edith. So far as we know and believe tho relation bet.woen the colonel and his present wife has nlwayR een har monious and pleasant and we regret that any reflection to the contrary should have been cast on so estima ble a woman a,s Mrs. Edith Mott Allen.

Levi Howell, of Dingman's Ferry, took an involuntary bath in the river at that ploe hist Monday evening. He had been over to West Van Auk en's after some sheep skins, and on his return thinking to shorten his walk did not follow tho road but at tempted to take a near cut, and walked into an open space in the ice. The skins sorvod to buoy him up un til bia cries for help attracted the at tention of P. A. L. Quick arid Mr. Van Aukon.who pushed aladder out to him, to which he clung and so wiiss roscuod from his perilous sit uation. Ho - was quite exliausted and would have sunk in a vory short time beneath the icy waters, had not timely aid been rendered.' His de fective eyesight was probably the cause of his mistaking the open wa ter for blnck ice. Firemsnie Note.

Ho wns born at Quicktown, July lst,1822 and was the son of Roger and Maria Lonsia (Aarts) Quick. He learned the trade of bhicksmithing in early life and for many years carried on the business in Milford, working for John M.

Falling health in duced him to relinquish his farm and ho removed to this borough alxnit one year ago. Ho was noted fur and wide as a skillful hunter, tmpier and fisherman. He was a kind, affoctijnate husbnnd and fnthor and a warm and steadfast friend. His familiar face and cot- dial greeting will be greatly missed.

She leaves two children : Michael, of Milford and Mattie, wife of Sam- uel Hashrouck, of Port Jervis. Fu neral was held at Zion A. U. church at 2 p. m. Wednesday. la Supposed to be Drowned. It is thought possible that the man Heater Who lived near the ' Brick House in Montague N. J. and whose wife ran away from him leaving four small children, who afterward de. sorted the children himself and left them to the tender mercies of the poor masters.may have become food for bass in the Delaware river. He left his house in company with a faithful dog, and it is supposed may have attempted to cross the ice near tho Detrick farm in Dingraan town ship to go to his father's home in Lehman. The dog returned home the same day appearing as if he had been in the water, and Heater has not since been seen or heard of. The children have been placed in the Sussex county poorhouse by the au thorities. Judge Bell, of Blair county, has recently decided that a justioe of the peace has no power to open judgment rendered by him. except at the instance of the appellant, with the consent of the adverse party and within thirty days of tha ren dition of the judgment.
