The menu consisted of all the delicacies of the season, including a plentiful supply of eels fresh from the Keesey batteries in the Susquehauna river on Saturday night, and in different styles. Ou Saturday Mr. Embich and party visited the five engine houses of the firn department of Columbia.and found them all equipped to to that of this city excepting that they still are mines the use of horses and therefore obliged to draw their heavy machines by hand to fires, and every with but one exception, has carriages full of good hose, which, jy the way, is an item for our fire committee of councils consideration.

A small reservoir was constructed at the spring and covereJ and enclosed with a stone arch: and fiom this the water was conducted by gravity by means of underground pipes to and along Market stivet north, to the i.orthwest corner of Market square. A fountain, or hydrant was placed there, and another about a hundred sooth of the first: and from both of these the water Hows without interruption throughout the year.

Among the acts of the legislature at its last session now attracting attention in some of the towns of the state is one intended to promote the cleanliness and health of borough. It provides that the burgess and town council of any borough shall have power by resolution of ordinance duly enacted, to require any owner of property in the borough, abutting or adjoining any street or alley in which is a public sewer, to make connection with such sewer, in such manner and under such regulations as the borough may order, for the purpose of discharge of such drainage or waste matter as the borough may specify in such sewer. If the owner of the property fails to do this within three months the bor- ouh authorities are to do it at the ex- penso of the property holder. Jonestown ia the only borough, in Lebanon county -which the new act will effect. Wen you feel that life Is hardly worth the take a dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets.

A fitting climax to a year of remarkable advancment is The Delineator for December, between the covers of which is contained a rare collection of special features of varied interest. The winter fashions are pictured and described in detail; there is a delightful article on the Floral Fetes of Japan, illustrated in -colors: the home surroundings of several stage favorites are entertainingly presented and described: there are three splendid stories by well known authors, together with illustrated articles on holiday fancy work and home-made gifts; new recipes, entertainments, and a wealth of other material of a seasonable nature, devoted to the pleasure and profit of every member of the household. command in the malitia. and only ond to a manly tijrun? in importance was a good voice and tho militia of- licers of thosi- days were distinguished for great vocal power.

CHERRY FAIRS. "The annual cherry fairs, which made the old town famous in its early days, were in many respects, like the after-harvest festivals in vogue in some communities in Germany. They were great social gatherings of all the l-eople, except tlie sick and tco aged. J'roni town and the country jotnid about to a considerable distance. They won? held in the midsummer season, when cherries were ripe, and were the forerunner of the present day picnic. Cherries, although they gave" a name to the occasion, were by no means the most important feature. The fairs ivere essentially a scheme for bringing the of the neighlrorbood together in a promiscuous gathering for merrymaking. The stal's of the old market house were utilized for this pur- and chEiries, raisins, miutdrorp. molasses candy, and other fruit and confections were sold there. The crowds at the fair passed the time merrily in dancing and social ganits. in which many of the young people participated. Music for the dancing was furnished mostly by colored vio- inists. The fairs, as a rule, were continued several days. When the market house fell in ruins, before 1850. they were discontinued. GREAT LUCK OF AN ED1TOE.

These rocks seem to have been made by rule and compass. Every artist has his molding room whece he may mako fifty shapes, but he chooses one shape as preferable to all others. I. will not say that the Giant's causeway was the 'world's molding room, but 1 do say out of a great many figures God seems to have selected the circle as the best. "It Is he that slttelh on the circle of the The stars In a circle, the moon In a circle, the sun In a circle, the universe in a circle and tbe throne of God the center of that circle. Appreciation of this would correct the architecture of churches, whose shape is often a defiance of divine sus- gestiou. When men build churches, they ought to imitate the idea of tho 1 Architect and put the audience In a circle, knowing that the tides emotion roll more easily that way than In straight lines. Six thousand years' ago God flung this world out of his irlght hand. But he cod not throw it out In a straight line.Enit curvilinear, with a leash of love hiRlIng it so. as to 'bring It back again. The world'started his hand pure ind Edenlc. It has been rolling on through regions of moral Ice and distemper. How Ions it will roll God only knows, but it will In due time make complete circuit and come back to the place where It hand of and Edenlc. Tbe Circle of The history of the world goes in a circle. Why is It that the shipping In our day Is improving so rapidly? A scientific shipbuilder says It is because men are imitating In some respects what the small wits deride, the old model of Noah's ark, not as we see It In old time pictures, but as It really was according to the account given. Great ships have we now, but where Is the ship on tlie sea today that could joutride a deluge In which the heaven and the earth were wrecked, landing all the passengers in two ot each kind of living creatures, hundreds or thousands of species? Pomology will go on with Its achievements until after many centuries tbe world will have plmns and pears equal to the paradisaical. The art of gardening' will grow for centuries, and after the Dowuings and Mitchells of the world have done then- best In.tbe far- future the art of gardening will come up to the nrboresceiice of the year 1. Lt the makers of colored glass go on Improving, they may In somo centuries be able to make something equal to the window, of York minster, which was built In the year 1290. We are six centuries behind those artists. But the world must keep on tolling until it shall make the complete circuit and come up to the skill of those very If the world continues to Improve In we shall have after awhile, perhaps after the advance of centuries, mortar equal to that which 1 saw In the wall of an exhumed English city built In the time of the Romans 1,600 years afso, that mortar today as as the day iu which It was made, having outlasted the brick and the stone. I say, after hundreds of years masonry may advance to that point. If the -world stands lone enough, we may have a city as large as they had in old times-i-Babylon, nve times tbe size London. You go into tbe potteries of England, and you find thorn making cups and vases after' the style of the cups and vases exhumed from Pompeii. The world Is not going back. Oh. no! But It Is swinging in a circle and will come around to. the styles of "pottery Icnown so long ago as the days of Pompeii. The world must keep on progressing until It makes the complete circuit The curve la In tbe right direction; thc curve will keep on until it becomes the Come Back. what Is true in the material universe Is true in Uod's moral government spiritual arrangement. That is tbe meaning of Ezeklel's wheel All commentators agree in saying that the wheel means God's providence.

Are parta of a great Iron machine whlr'ad aroanil and around whether we III or not. the victims of Inexorable fate? No! So far from that I shall show you that we ourselves start the circle of good.or bad actions and that it wil' rcirely come around again to- us unless divine Intervention it be hindered. Chote bad or good actions may make he circuit of many years, but come rack to us they will as certainly as that God sits on the circle of the earth. worst woman of the Shakespeare copying bis Lady Macbeth from her picture slew K)th because she wanted his vineyard.

Give If, according to the Bible, a thousand years are In God's sight us one day, then, according to that calculation the C.OOO years of the world's existence has been only to God as from Monday to Saturday. But It Is often the case that the rebound is quicker, tbe return Is much quicker, than that. Tbe circle is sooner completed. You resolve that you will do what good you can. In one week you put word of counsel In the heart of Sabbaili school child. During that same week you give a letter of introduction a young man struggling in business. Tjurlag the same week you make an exhortation to a prayer meeting. It Is all gone. You wlU never hear of it perhaps, you think. A fenr years after a man comes up to you and says, "You don't know me. do you':" You say, "No; I don't remember ever to have seen you." he says. "1 was In the Sabbath school class over which you were the teacher. One Sunday yon invited ino to Christ; I accepted the offer. You see that church with two towers yonder?" "Yes," you say. He says, "That Is where I preach," or: "Do you see, that governor's house? That Is where I live." Foal Folion. One day a man comes to you and says, "Good morning." You look at him and say. "Why, you have the advantage of me; I cannot place you." He says, "Don't you remember thirty years ago giving a letter ot Introduction to a young letter of Introduction, to William E. Dodge?" "Yes. yes, I do." He says: "I am the man. That was my first step toward a fortune. But I have retired from business now and am giving my time to philanthropies and public interests. Come up to my house and see me." Or a man comes to you and says: "I want to introduce myself to you. I went Into a prayer meeting some years ago. I sat back by the door. You arose to make an exhortation. That talk changed the course of my life, and If I ever to heaven under God I will owe my palvatlon to you." In only ten, twenty jor thirty years the circle swept out and iswept back again to your own grateful Uieart. But sometimes It is a wider circle and does not return for a great while.

That was cheap plre, considering all tbe circumstances, It kindled a light which shone all tbe world and aroused the mar- Jtyr spirit, and out from that burning of and Ridley' rolled the. circle hvlder and wider, starting other circles, 'couvolutlng, overrunning, circuuiscrib- llng, overarching all circle. I But what Is true of the good is just las true of the bad. You utter a slan- 'der against your neighbor. It has (gone forth from your teeth. It will inever come back, you think. You (have done thc man all the mischief iyou can. You rejoice to see him wince. say, "Didn't 1 give It to him'." That word has gone out, that slanderous word, on Its poisonous and blasted You think It will never do you jany harm. But I am watching that jword, and I see It beginning to and It curves around, and It Is aiming' at your heart. You had better dodge it. You cannot dodge it. It rolls Into lyour bosom, and after It rolls In a word of an old book rolls In after IK saying, "With what measure ye mete 'it shall be measured to you again." Filial Incratltnilr. You maltreated an aged parent You begrudge him the room In your house. Tou are Impatient of his whimsicalities and garrulity. It makes you mad to hear him tell the same story twice. give him food he cannot mnstl- icate. You wish he was away. You, wonder If he Is going to live forever. He will be gone very soon. His steps are shorter and shorter. He Is going to stop. But God has an account to settle with you on that subject. After awhile your eye will be dim, and your gatt will halt, and thc sound of the grinding will be low, and you will tell the same story twice, and your children will wonder If you will never be taken away. Tihey called you "father" once. Now they call you the "old man." If yon live a few years longer, they will call you the "old chap." are those rough words with which your children are accosting you? They are the echo of the very words you used In the ear of your old father forty years ago. "What is that which you are trying to chew, but find It unmastlcatable and your Jaws ache and you surrender the attempt? Perhaps It may be the gristle which you gave to your father for his breakfast forty years ago. A gentleman passing along the avenue saw a sou tagging his father Into the street by the hair of the head. The gentleman, outraged at this brutal conduct, was about to punish the offender, when the old man and said: "Don't hurt him. It's all right Forty years ago this morning I dragged out my father by the hair of his head!" It Is a circle. Other sins may be adjourned to the next world, but maltreatment of parents Is punished In this world. That circle Is made quickly, very quickly. Oh, what a stupendous thought that the good and'the evil we start come back to us! Do you know that the judgment day will be only the points at" which the circles Join, the good and the bad we have done coming back tb unless divine Intervention back to us with welcome of delight or curse of condemnation? God'a Mlgjlity Oh, I would like to see Paul, the Invalid missionary, at the moment when his influence comes to full Influence rolling out through Antloch, through Cyprus, through Lystra, through Corinth, through Athens, through Asia, through Europe, through America, through the flrst century, through five centuries, through twenty centuries, through earth, through heaven, and at last the wave of influence, having made full circuit, strikes his souL Oh. then I would like to see him! No one can tell the wide sweep of the circle of Paul's Influence save the one who Is seated on the circle of the earth. I should not like to see the countenance of Voltaire when his Influence comes to full orb. When the fatal hemorrhage seized him at eighty-three years of age, his Influence did not cease. The most brilliant man of his century, he had used all his faculties for assaulting Christianity, bis bad Influence widening through France, widening out through Germany, widening through all Europe, widening through America, widening through the 123 years that have gone since died, widening through earth, widening through the great future, until at last tbe accumulated influence of his baleful teachings and dissolute life will beat against bis dismayed spirit, and at that moment It will be enough to make the black hair of eternal darkness turn white with horror. Xo one can tell how that bad man's Influence girdled the earth save the one who Is seated on the circle of thc Lord Almighty. "Well, now," say some, "this. In some respects. Is a very glad theory and In others a very sad one. We would like to have the good we done come back to us, but the thought that all the sins we have ever committed will come back to us fills us with affright." My brother, I have -to tell you God can break that circle and will do so at your call. I can bring twenty passages of Scrlp'are to prove that when God, for Christ's sake, forgives a man the sins of his past life never come back. Tbe wheel may roll on and on. but you take your position behind tbe cross, and the wheel strikes the cross and Is shattered forever. The sins fly off from tbe circle and fall at right angles with complete oblivion, forgiven! Forgiven! The meanest thing a man can do Is after some difficulty has been Battled to bring It up again, and God will not do anything Ike that God's memory Is mighty enough to hold all the events of the ages, but there Is one thing that Is sure to slip his memory, one thing he sure to forget and that Is pardoned ransgresslon. How do I know It? I will prove It "Their sins and their nlqnlties will I remember no more." 'Blessed Is he whose transgression is lorgiven." The Eternal Circle. But do not make the mistake of that this doctrine of the circle stops with this life. It rolls on through icaven. Yon might quote In opposl- loti to me what St John says about city of heaven. He says It "Ileth lour square." That does seem to militate against this Idea of circle. But do you not know there Is many a square house that'has a family circle facing each other and In a circle moving, and I can prove that this Is so In regard to heaven. St. John says, "I heard the voice of many angels round about tbe throne and tbe beasts and the elders." And again he says, "I nw round about the throne four and seats." And again he says, "There was a rainbow round about tha throne." The two former Imply a circle; the last either a circle or a semicircle. seats facing each other, the angels facing each other, the men facing each other. Heaven an amphitheater of glory. Circumference of patriarch and prophet and apostle. Circumference of Scotch Covenanters and Theban legion and Alblgenses. Circumference of the good of all ages. Periphery of splendor unlmaglned and indescribable. A circle! A circlet But every circumference must have a center, and what Is the center of this heavenly circumference? Christ His all the all the praise; his all tbe crowns. All heaven wreathed Into a garland round about him. Take off the Imperial sandal from his foot and behold the scar of the spike. Lift the coronet of dominion from his brow and see -where was the laceration of the briers. Corae closer, all heaven. Narrow the circle around bis great heart Christ, the Savious! Christ, the man! Christ, the Gpd! Keep thy throne forever, seated on the circle of the earth, seated on tbe circle of heaven. On Christ, the golld rock, 1 stand; AH other ground is ahlftlns sand. 1301.

Joseph Callahan's "Faust," with the electrical garden, the weird "Brocken" and the beautiful "Apotheosis," scenes painted by Artist Frank Platzer, of the academy of music. New York city, and a wealth of bewildering electrical and calcium effects, combined with gorgeous and correct costumes, is the strong, theatrical attractions nounced for tonight at the academy of music. Henry Ward Beecher once said "Faust." as a moral lesson to young and old. is stronger than any sermon ever preached from a pulpit. On this point all religious denominations agree, and the Joseph Callahan "Faust" company Is said to give a more complete and better stage pro- dncton of this beautiful play than ever before presented. REAL WIDOW BROWN. To see "The Real Widow Brown" is a rare that will pleasantly linger in the memory of those who witness tho purest, and most successful laugh-producer of the times. There Is a too it affords' excellent opportunities for the well selected company to display their dramatic and fun-making abilities to the best advantage. Interspersed throughout the play are the latest musical, singing and dancing specialties. This attraction is scoring a huge success and will soon be seen at the academy of music. Tuesday, Nov. 5. D'ARCY OF THE GUARDS. Louis Evan Shipman, the author of the play, "D'Arcy of the Guards," which Henry Miller presents at the academy of music on Thursday evening only, Is well known to the public as one of the best of our younger literary workers, and has won his spurs. in the field of the novelist, as well as that of the dramatist. He is still under 30 years of age, of average height, and a rotundity of face and figure which, with his usual jolly smile, look well in keeping with one's ideas of the writer of such delicious comedy as that in which his works abound. Ha was born New York and educated in. Harvard, but now from choice resides, in Cornish, New Hampshire, that favored residence of so many bright minds of today, among whom are Winston Churchill, the novelist; St Cau- dens and Adams, the sculptors, and Thomas Dewing and Butlery, artists In oils. Before his self-expatriation Rudyard Kipling lived in his Vermont, home, which was within hailing distance and just over the border from Cornish. Such a "literary and artistic atmosphere" Is certainly a good one for a young writer. "D'Arcy of the Guards," Mr. Shipman mildly Insists, was published some time previous to the issuance of "Richard Car-' vel" and "Janice Meredith" to the public, so he was certainly not among, the latest of American novelists to depict early American history. "D'Arcy" was flrst written in dramatic form and from that was constructed the novel. MAGICIAN KELLER. In some of his Oriental illusions, aft given this season. Magician Kellar -approaches, apparently, very close to the- lines of the supernatral. In "Princess Karnak" he shows how it is to send a young lady through the air in the- theater, in full light, over the heads of the audience, so quickly that no one can see her go. He accomplishes this in the following manner: Two wooden cages with clatted sides and doors are shown, one on the stage and one suspended ten feet in the air. The princess is locked in' the lower one and at the magical word of command is gone. She is seen tripping lightliy down the aisle of: the theater from the rear toward-the stage, but how she got there no one can, fathom. She is again Imprisoned and a second time as mysteriously -and instantane- ously disappears. This time the aud- ence crane their necks to look at the rear of the house, but she Is not there. The upper cage is unlocked and there is the princess, smiling prettily whilst in the cage on the floor is a six-foot soldier in full regimentals. This but one of a dozen full stage Illusions that will be given when Magician Kellar comes to the city. He will be at the academy of music Friday, Nov. 8. A ROUGH RIDER'S ROMANCE. 'A Rough Rider's Romance," a thrilling war drama, has an abundance of mirthful comedy to relieve the-intensity attendant upon its many highly wrought up scenes and situations. In the first act is seen the Rough Rider's march to war to Sanitago, led. by the great Rough Rider's band, making a thrilling stage picture. The final act of the play shows a reproduction of the storming of San Juan hill which attack was led by our gallant soldier so that Is evident there is enough material In the "play to furnish thrills In abundance. "A Rough Rider's Romance" comes to the academy of music Saturday, Nev. 9. A Beautiful Foot Is a most excellent thing in woman and Is attainable by all who wear he CHURCH SOCIETIES WILL MEET.
