GAZETTE VOLUME 101. NO. 12 BEDFORD. P/U FRIDAY. DECEMBER 7, 1906 ESTABLISHED IN 180S NOTE THE DIFFERENCE ESSIE Death Claimed As a Victim Sunday Night the Octogenarian POET A N D ~ T f i s T O R I A N Sketch of the Descent and Life of One of the County's Venerable Landmarks. The death in Everett Sunday evening of Dr. Charles N. Hickok removed a landmark from the county. He had resided in Bedford and Everett tcjf over 6 0 S6th year. years, and was in his Evening lectures Will Entertain; \ Day Discourses Will Instruct. I when you got to hear a piay, a ( Chief Executive in Yearly Communi- concert, or an entertainment It is ' largely your own fault if you are dis- cation Makes appointed. You are satisfied only . when you get what you expect to get. You have no right, though, to expect what is not promised. If instruction and discussion are promised don't expect to hear wit and humor. If entertainment and edification are offered, don't, look for a dry sermon.' The lecture course for the Teachers' Institute of December 17-21 next promises entertainment. There is not a dry sentence in Capt., Jack Crawford's lecture. There is not a dull statement in Frank Dixon's oration. Crawford will be here on Tuesday evening and Dixon on Thursday evening. He was the youngest son of John Hoyfc Hickok and his wife, Mary K VIGOROUS SUGGESTIONS Favors Income Tax, Currency Reform, National Divorce Law and Coolie Labor on Canal. DR. CHARLES N. HICKOK Lockwood, late of Harrisburg, and was the last surviving member of ,the family. His brothers were William Orville Hickok, manufacturer, late of Harrisburg, and Hon. Henry Cuyler Hickok, Superintendent of Schools, late of Philadelphia. He had one sister, who was the wife of Dr. Mann, late of Everett, all deceased. Dr. Hickok was a native of Ithaca, N. Y., from which his parents re~moved in his second year. The family of Hickok were from Warwickshire^ "England?-- either "in or near ' Stratford, the tomb of one of th.em,- probably the last of his line in England,--is in -the vestry of Holy Trinity church, Stratford-on-A von (Shakespeare's birth-place). The inscription on tne tablet reads: "To the memory of Edward Hickok, Gent, who died March 23, A. D. 1774, Aet. 63. He was pious, charitable and of the strictest integrity." The ancestor of the American name,--William Hickox, of Fannington, Conn.,--from whom the subject of this sketch is a descendant in the seventh generation, emigrated to New England early in the seventeenth century, probably between 1627 and 1633. The exact date, however, is uncertain His--Charles N.'s--descent from the same name comes also through his mother; Mrs. Lockwood (her mother^ being, before her marriage with Job Lockwood, Sarah Hickok, daughter of Nathan Hickok of Wilton, Conn., a cousin of Jesse, the father of John Hoyt Hickok. By his mother's side, Charles N. Hickok is a direct descendant, in the eighth generation, from Robert Lockwood, who came over with Governor Winthrop's fleet in 1630. Winthrop speaks of him as "Goodman Lockwood." He was from England and wa"s a descendant of Rev. Richard Lockwood, Baronet, of Dews Hall, Essex and Gayton, Northampton; rector in 1527-30 of Dingley, Northamp- tonshire. He--Sir Richard--was, in turn, a descendant in the fifth generation of Rogerus De Lockwoode of Lockwoode, Staffordshire. The family are still numerous in England and Scotland; several of them have held important public trusts in the centuries past. The present Lords Napier and Vernon, also the Earl of Arran, are direct descendants of Rev. Sir Richard Lockwood, above mentioned. But instruction, not fun, is promised in the free lecture to be given during the School Directors' Convention on. the Friday evening preceding Institute week. The speaker is Supt. O. J. Kern, of Winnebago county, Illinois. His subject is "Country School Problems." He will give you new ideas. He will speak to you on the interesting subject of common schools, and he will speak as one who has earned wide repute as a practical school man. But don't go expecting to be amused. To be sure, the Orchestra will be there and they are highly entertaining always; the singing by the pupils of the Bedford High School will be an enjoyable feature of the program; and the lecture will be illustrated by fine stereopticon ^pictures showing the latest and best in school improvement. Every friend of education who can appreciate an able address on a vital everyday subject should be present. He will be sure to be deeply interested. A high class concert is always greatly enjoyed in Bedford. Happily the Institute course includes two of the best musical organizations on the lyceum platform. The first--The Musical Five, Boston's Artistic Novelty Company--^appears on Monday evening of Institute week, and the second--The Chicago Glee Club and Trombone Quartet--on Wednesday evening. Washington, December 4.--The annual message of the President was submitted and read in both houses of Congress yesterday at noon. It is both lengthy and vigorous, characteristic of its author, and contains many matters of national concern. The following digest of the message will disclose its strength and interest: "I again recommend a law prohibiting all corporations from contributing to campaign expenses of any party. Let individuals contribute as they desire; but let us prohibit in effective fashion all corporations from making contributions for any political purpose, directly or indirectly." "The triumph of the mob is just as evil a thing as the triumph of the plutocracy, and to have escaped one danger avails nothing whatever if we succumb to the other." "Every lynching means just so much moral deterioration in all the children who have any knowledge of it, and therefore just so much additional trouble for the next generation of Americans. "Let justice be both sure and swift; but let it be justice under the law, and not the wild and crooked savagery of a mob." "Of course the best type of education for the colored man, taken as a whole, is such education as is conferred in schools like Hampton and Tuskegee; where the boys and girls, the young men and young women, are trained industrially as well as in the ordinary public school branches." Mrs. Daniel Cronse Mrs. Henrietta Grouse, widow of Daniel Grouse, died at her home in Bedford township, from diseases incident to age, on November 29, aged 76 years, 10 months and 23 days.

"Surely it should need no demonstration to show that wilful sterility is, from the standpoint of the nation, from the standpoint of the human race, the one sin for which the penalty is national death, race death; a sin for which there is no atonement; a sin which is the more dreadful exactly in proportion as the men and women guilty thereof are in other respects, in character, and bodily and mental powers, those whom for the sake of the state it would be well to see the fathers and mothers of many healthy children, well brought up in homes made happy by their presence.
