Lewisbcbo, May 14.-Although  the weather looked threatening this morning, and while there were occasional heavy Bhowers during the day, these conditions did not dampen the ardor of the thousands of visitors and Lewisburgers in  participating in the dedicatory exorcises of the Beaver Memorial Methodist  Episcopal Church.  The people of the town suspended their usual vocations in honor of tbe event, and dressed up in their Sunday clothes, turned out en masse to tbe three services held in the beautiful new structure. Large parties arrived early from Wil-liamsport, Scranton, Dauville and other neighboring towns, while many ministers and prominent laymen of the Central Pennsylvania Conference of the Methodist Church were on band to congratulate Pastor Shields and to thank Thomas Beaver, the patron of one of the fineBt church buildings in the State. Tbe structure was greatly admired, and it is stated to-day that, it now represents an expemiltme of about (150,000.

Foss, of Philadelphia, who took for his text Hebrews, 11, 13, Then the venerable Bishop Thomas Bowman, a pastor of the Lewis j burg Church a half century ago, performed the formal dedicatory service in a most impressive manner. At the conclusion of tbe service Rev. David H. Shield*, the I present pastor of the ohurcb, read a series of resolutions adopted by tbe quarterly conference, thanking Mr. Beaver for his munificent gift to the church and people of Lewisbnrg. Mr. Beaver sat on the platform between Bishops Foss and Bowman, and, although a Presbyterisu himself, he entered heartily into tbe exercises of the day aud was unremitting in his attention for the comfort of his special guests.

Milton, May 14.-Tbe tenth anuiver-sary of tbe Milton fire waa celebrated today. Speoial trains began to arrive in the morning laden with people from Williams-port, Lock Haven, Renovo, Lewisburg, Harrisbarg, Northumberland and Sun-bury and till tbe noon hour tbe pretty streets of the little city were crowded by a throng aggregating twenty thousand. All the prominent thoroughfares and business and private places were in holiday array and tbe American flag was to be Been everywhere. At half-past 2 o'clock tbe parade of fire oompaDies, Patriotio Order Sons of Amerioa, bands of musio, drum corps and other organizations from tbe surrounding towns started on its march. The hose carriage of a borne fire company bore tbe inscription, "Our Relic of 1880," and tbe steam fire engine of a Sunbury company bore these words on a banner: "I Was Here in 1880." miltox's great fire. The fiio �which was celebrated to-day occurred on May 14,1830. It broke out at the car (notary, iu the upper part of the town. There was a high wind and the flames spread until nearly the entire town was reduced to ashes, destroying over 400 bouses and making 600 families homeless. Some of the wealthiest men lost their all, but to-day Milton is as beautiful aa before tbe unrelenting flames visited her, and fully as rich. Among the oldest buildings destroyed was the historic Btone mansion of Ex-Governor Pollock, Valuable Patents That are Looked Up. It will iuterest all persons who use type-writing machines to know that thepropri. etors of the now indispensable instruments are tbe possessors and owners of patents which, if applied to the Instruments, would very largely increase their usefulness, and add to their simplicity and very materially decrease the cost of tbe machines. There has been some talk about a consolidation of the various inteiests and firms now manufscturing typewriters, bnt it is not likely to tako place. The truth is the manufacture and sale of type-writers are a bonanza, aud the patentees oan hardly be expected to do anything that might in the end help to deplete their own bank acoount. What these important patents consist ol I do not know but they are said to be very valuable,- aud representatives of the various houses are constantly on the alert for new ideas, which they immediately patent and pay for liberally. It is not generally known, but it is a fact nevertheless, that tbe Western Union Telegraph Company pursues a like coarse, and every new invention that promises to aid in the development of the telegraph is eagerly bought up and put away for future use. Edison is the only man who seems to have bo many ideas that be can afford to give the public the full benefit of them. His perfected phonograph is really remarkable, and is used by a large number of literary workers. I know of one author who spoke an entire novel into the phonograph. Afterward it was carefully transcribed on the typewriter, and Is now in print. Apropos of Edison, it may not be out of plaae to say that hia genius has counted for more substantial things than genius usually docs. He is said to be a millionaire five tlmce over, aud his clever wife devotes most of ber time to looking about for good investments. Edison himself is bo busy, and oareB so little for money, that he would probably buy anything that waa offered him. His daily mail is one of the queerest oolleotions imaginable; but ho seldom sees his letters, as they are all read and answered by one of bis Beorotarios. Indeed, when he is very buBy, and some groat idea has seized him, no one, not even his wife, can get into his laboratory. OUR LOCAL DBAG NET. A meful Article.

Mr. Stevenson likes tbe story very much himself, and has become deeply interested in tbe fascinating plot which be is weaving. He says: "It has something of a Monte Cbristo flavor, being the tale of an abominable orlme and a singular vengeance. I have great hopes of the tale; the incidents are strange, and so are the ebaraoters." This baa tbe true Stevenson flavor, and smacks of "Hyde and Jekyll."
