Grier. of NippenoBB Valley-Sketches of Their Long and Active Career as Practitioners-Think of the rillfi They HaTe Admlnleteredl [Special Correspondence, j WilliAMsroKT, Sopt. 13.-Lycoming county claims the honor of having two of the oldest medical praetioners, still in active serviae, in this seotion of the State. Dr. Thomas Lyon was born iu Lycoming oounty, Ootobor 13, 1812. His parents were natives of England and came to this country near the olose of the last century. He was the third of six sons. After receiving a fair education be was placed under the tuteago of the famous Rev. Dr. Kirkpatrick, in bis Academy at Milton, for the purpose of learning tbe languages. He was the most successful instructor in this part of the State at that day and a very large number of the young men placed under1 his charge attained to high stations of eminenco in tbo professions and civil walks of life. After graduating from Kirkpatrick's Aoademy he decided to study medicine, and at once entered the offioo of that celebrated physician and surgeon, James S. Oougal, of Milton. He made rapid progress in hi? studies and iu duo time entered Jefferson Medical College, whence he graduated well up in his class in March, 1838. Immediately after graduation he came to Williamsport, then a small village of about 1000 inhabitants, opeued an office and entered upon tbe practice of his profession, wbich he has followed without interruption lor over 52 years. Tho country was then sparsely settled, and as the roads were bad, traveling was not very pleasant, especially at night. It was tbe custom at that day, and for many years afterwards, to travel about tbe country on horseback, with a pair of saddlebags. In an elaborate paper read before tbe County Medical Sooiety in May, 188S, the Dootor related many reminiscenoes of tbe early years of his practice, and the trials and privalionB be waB called on to endure when in the line of bis duty. It was a thrilling as woll as deeply interesting recital, and in many respects was invested with all the charms of romance. If tho young physicians of to day had to endure such severe trial!!, they would think their lot was a bard one, and would heartily wish themselves out of it. If the Docto could be induced to write a book entitled "Fifty Years of Praotioe," it would prove in tbe language of tbe late Horaco Gieely, to be "mighty interesting reading." In 1839 his brother, Charles L. Lyon, commenced the study of medicine with bim and graduated from Jefferson Medical College in 1342, Returning from college be at once entered into partnership with his brother and preceptor, and they were associated together until 1819, when tho latter settled on tbe Loyalsock, noar Montours-ville. There be bad contiuued to reside until tbe present time, and he has boen a praotioner for over forty-eight yoars. Ho is yet hale, hearty and vigorous, and gives promise of bocoming as much of a veteran as his distinguished brother. Dr. Thomas Lyon married Miss Elizabeth Priestley, daughtor of Joseph K. Priestley, of Northumberland, and great-granddaughter of Rev. Dr. Joseph Priestley, tbe eminent theologian, chemist and discoverer of oxygen gas. Ho came to Northumberland in 1794, to escape prosecution in Eugland on account of bis religious belief, and there be remained to the olose of his life in 1804. Hia grave, marked by a plain marble tombBtone, may bo seen in the beautiful cemetery on the hillside. And bow many of tbe thousands of persons who annually travel up and down tbe Philadelphia and Erie railroad realize fora moment that tbe remainsof one of tbe greatest philosophers of the last century repose within sight of the ear windows! Six children were tbe fruit of this marriage, and of the number ouo son and three daughters survive. The Bon, Dr. Edward LyOD, a well known arid suc-ceBBful practitioner of Williamsport, graduated in 1S63. One of the daughters is tho wife of Dr. E. H. Campbell, also of Williamsport, bo that it will bo seen that the fumily has a decidedly medical tendency. This veteran practiliouei is a member uf the Lycoming Medieal Society, of tbo Pennsylvania Medical Society, and of tho American Medical Association. He has served as President of tlio looal societies and Vico President of the Stato Medical Society. In politics he is a Republican, has never held any public office except that of examining surgeon during tho war, to which lie was appointed by Governor j Curtin. He has been bo wuddod to his profession that be never had time to attend to any duties of a political character and in fact be never had any inclination that way. In 1878, Dr. Lyon, accompanied by bis wife and daughter, viBitad Europe, and spent several mouths very pleasantly in Ireland, Scotland, England, and on the continent. Near London they found number of relativos with whom tbey bada very pleasant time. Tbey also visited Birmingham, and saw tbe statue erected in honor of Dr. Priestley, who was mobbed and driven out of tbe place, on account of his religious belief, in 1791, TERSELY TOLD HAPPENINGS All the Late News and Views of the City Up to 3:00 P. M. GOTTEN UP IN A EEADABLE FORM The second oldest phyaioian in the county ia Dr. John H. Grier, of Oriole, Nipponese Valley. He was born in Chester county, on the banks of the Brandywiue, June 2d, 1813. His father was the celebrated Rev. John H. Grier, tbe well known Presbyterian divine, who came to Pino Creek in 1814, and died at Jersey Shore, February 3, 1880, laoking but four days of being 92 years old. Tbe mother of Dr. Grier was Mary Mackoiduff, a native of Chester oounty. She died at Jersey Shore January 19tb, 1831, in tho 44tb year of her age. The subject of this sketch was the oldest of ten children, but all of them did not reach maturity. John H. Grier, after receiving a good education, principally under tbe direction of bis father, commenced the study of mcdiciuo with Dr. Asber Davidson, a woll known physician of Jorsey Shore, and finished his studies with Dr. Joseph F. Grier, of Lewi8burg. He then entered Jefferson College, Philadelphia, and graduated tberf.om with honor in 1840. Soon after returning home be married Miss Amanda M. Quiggle, daughter of the late William Quiggle, of Wayne township, Clinton county, and they located near Tiffin, Ohio. Not liking the place the Dootor and bis wife soon returned to Pennsylva nia and settled in the ancient borough of McEwensville. Hero bo engaged in an active practice, which he kept up until 1850, when be came to Jersey Shore. In 1859 be located at Oriole, as it offered a good Held for a pbysiciar, and thoro he has continued to reside for a period of over thirty years. As will be seen, Dr. Lyon is only bis senior in tbe medical profession by less than two years. Dr. Grier, although he has seen fifty years of medical service, only devotes his time to offioe practice at present. But he is still quite hale and vigorous for a man who is well along in his 78th year, and spent a few days at tbe last term of court as a witness. Dr. Grier is the father of fiix sons and one daughter, all of whom are living. They are named: W. Hayes, Albert C, Mary E., James Dougal, John W.t S. M. Quiggle, and Robert H. Col W. Hayes Grier, tbo eldest, is a printer, editor and politician of some prominence. For many years he has been a resident of Columbia, Lancaster county,and is publishing a paper there at the present time. He was a gallant soldier and ofn'oer in tbe civil war; ho also served as tbe first obief of the Buroau of Statistics, Harrisburg, under tbe present constitution. When Pattison was chosen Governor he appointed him Superintendent of Publio Printing as a recognition of bis political fidelity to bim, he being an ardent Demoorat. John W. is a school teacher by profession, but a few years ago ho revivod the JerBey Shore Videtle, which be Is now editing and publishing. At the late Republican convention be reoeivod tho nomination for the Legislature, and is running for that office on tbo ticket with John Paulhamus and Samuel Bryan, with strong prospeots of being elected. With but one exception, tbe venerable Doctor has voted for every Whig and Republican oaudidate since 1836. His first Presidential vote was east for General Harrison, and although he lost it, he won in 1840, when "Old Tippeoanoe" was finally elected. He was an ardent friend of Henry Clay, and like hundreds of tbe admires of that distinguished statesman, he deeply mourned bis defeat. In 1850 he departed from his usual custom and voted for Buchanan, because he was a warm personal friend of his father. But that was tho last timo be strayed from tbo fold, having voted for every Repnblioen candidate down to tho grandsou of Guneral Harrison, tbo present occupant of the Presidential chair; and bo still hopes to again vote for Blaino, and see bim inaugurated as the rulor ol the nation. It is rare to find two such old physicians whoso careers are so nearly alike in years of actnal professional service. They com-moneed their busy lives when much riding and bard work wore required, and they have lived to see many improvements introduced in thoirprofession.Aud if Dr.Lyon has tho advantage of Dr. Grier in a few months of Boniorlty ns a practitioner, the latter can prudly say that he is twice a great grandfather, which degree of high distinction the former has not yet reached. Y. M. C. A. MeeU�B-4 Saturday Night Blare-Board of rradeMeeting-TheBiver -Photosrapning^the Room Men-Will IJanco at the Armory-A Big- ClrcnB Coining. ; The meeting in the Presbytorian chapel, yesterday afternoon, of membors of tho Young Men's Christian Association, was well attended, State Secretary Charles E. Hurlburt was present and conducted tbe exercises. It was decided to bold a meeting to-night, in tbe Reformed oburob, for the purpose of effecting a temporary or. ganization. At tbe meeting to-night a committee on nominations will bo appointed, and at a meeting to bo held on Thursday evening, October 2d, the committee will report and the permanent officers nominated by tbe commute will be elected. At Trinity M. E. Church, last night, Secretary Hurlburt delivered an address on tho general work of tbe Association, Weekly meetings will bo held until tho date for permanont organisation. THE ADDKESS OF SECRETARY lUTLIHIItT. Stat a Secretary Charles E. Hulburt in his address at tbo meeting last night said he believed it to be a fact that men want in tboir innermost souljto do what is right. That wo look upon men and say they are bad and bound to go to destruction. The great fact is this, that men are tempeted more to-day than tbey ever were in the past. Perhaps they are weaker but often men become discouraged and if wo were to go to these men to-night, every man who bad been brought up in a christian borne, would tell us of experiences that if we bad bad, perhaps we would have been no bettor. But these men have met these thingB and have become discouraged and if christians were to manifest an interest in them and talk to them they might be won to the christian life. Skepticism is not tbe great evil that we are to fight to-day, but indifferenoe of ebristians. We mult give young men praotioal help, honest, earnest, sympathetic help. Many people have no idea bow a young man feels walking tbe street of a strange oity knowing no one in the place, and if Christians fail to look after tbem Satan will. You may say that it is girlish or effeminate for a young man to be homesick, but very few people have an idea how a youog mau feels walking tbe streets of a strange city knowing no one in tbe place, and if Christians fail to look after thorn the Devil will. We must not only lend a helping hand and speak a word in the Master's name, but wo are to give of what God has placed in onr hands. There are enough unneccessary ornaments in tbe homes of Christian people to carry tbe gospel to one thousand million people in heathen lands in five years. Seventy-five per cent, of tbe young men do not attend religious services as will be attested by the most conservative of the olergy. The one thought and aim of the Young Men's Christian Association is that Christian young men might be developed in their personal lives. We are the people of God, we want to be faithful to bim, but do we not often shut ourselves up in onr own homes failing witness for Christ In word and aot. He oalls upon us all to do His work, using all the talents we have. If we were to do our full duty and each one would go out and personally speak to our friends of Christ and witness for Him. Lock Haven would feel the shook from ono ond to the otuor. After tbe address tho speaker offered a prayer wbiah was followed with a selection by tho choir. Alter singing the dox-ology tho benediction was pronounced. The Kinehart'ft To-Night.

Among other bouses called upon may be mentioned MesBrB. Carey Bros. & Grevemeyer, book, sellers, stationers, importers and manufac turers of wall papers. For 'some years past these gentlemen have occupied the large warehouse at 817 Market street massive five-story basement iron front structuie, covering 27x200 feet of ground But for sometime past, owing to tbeir rapidly growing business, tbe firm have needed considerably more room than they bad at command, and so on September 1st they took possession of, as their wall paper warehouse, the commodious premises at 931 and 933 Market street, which fronts on that thorougfare thirty-six feet, and widens half way back to forty-eight feet. Ic is 200 feet deep, and has four stories and basement. This place is used altogether for tbe firm's wall paper business, and one floor at 817 Market street is also used as a wall paper salesroom. Messrs. Carey Bros, bad, up to July 1 e Gut ten Out of tbe Way- Condition of the Contested Election Cases -Other Late New*. Washington, Sept. 14.-It is expected that Senator Sanders will conolude his speech upon the conference report of the Land Grant Forfeiture bill to-morrow, and that the report will then be agreed to. If it is then not too latu in the day Senator Sawyer will call up tho Anti-Lottery bill, which has already passed tbo House. Otherwise he will ask tbe Senate to dispose of the Private Pension bills on tbe calendar, postponing the Anti-Lottery bill until Tuesday. So far as known there, will be no open opposition to the passage of this bill. Sen ator Gibson, of Louieana, will Bpeak in its favor. Tbe order of business adopted by the Republican oaucus will then be followed. the contested seats. The opposition shown by tbe minority in tho House to the consideration of tbo LanBton-Venable election case, bas bad the effect more strongly to determine tbe Republican leaders that the House shall act upon that case as well as upon tbe Mil let-Elliot case. It bas been urged upon the absent Republioan members that the party could bardly afford to abandon tbe colored Republican contestants after seating a number of white Republican members. A large number of telegrams have been sent to the absentees requesting their attendance here, and if a quorum is ob. tained by Monday or Tuesday it is tbe intention to dispose of tbe two election cases without argument beyond the forty minutes talk allowed by the rules In eaeb case, after tbe previous question is ordered. After that will follow the Tariff bill. It is tbe general impression that not more than two or three days at most will be oonanmed in its consideration and that if a quorum is in attendance tbe Tariff bill will go to tbe conference before the end of tbe present week. kennedy's REVISED srEECH. The speech of Representative Kennedy, of Ohio, attacking the Senate and Senator Quay, which created a sensation when delivered ten days ago, appeared in the Congressional Record this morning, after having been revised by Kennedy. Tbe speech as it appears in the Government's official publication of tbe proceedings of Congress differs from the speech as originally delivered, in the elimination of certain passages which it has been asserted were contrary to parliamentary rules and nsagos. The revised speech ia hardly less severe than as originally delivered, but it is believed by the Congressman from Ohio to bo now in conformity with the rules of the House governing oritioism in the debate of the otber branch of tbe Legislature. The first part of tbe speech, wbich was devoted to the Federal Election bill, is unchanged. Coming down to tbe attack upon tbo Senate no cbange Is made in (bat part referring to tbe high charabter and standing of Webster, Clay, Fessenden and Wade. Then, after declaring tnat Ohio has twice within a decade been disgraced by Senators, ohoseu simply because they were able to outbid other costestauts, there is this sentence: "Surely tbe eloak of Senatorial courtesy bas been used to hide the infamy and corruption which has dishonored and disgraced a body whioh was once the proudest in the land." otiier eliminations. This is the only reference to the "cloak of Senatorial courtesy," all that part de-olariug that Senatorial courtesy bad bo-come a stench in tho nostrls of tho people and a cloak to cover up infamies, being omitted. Tbe only cbage mando so far as to Senatjr Quay is concerned oonsists in tbe eliBion of tbe word "oriminal" where it occurrs in two places, and of the omission of all mention of Senator Quay by name where It was suggested in the original speech that Judas, when be hanged himself, had left an example for tbo Mate Quays that was worthy of their imitation, there is substituted there for the following:-An example woll woithy of imitation." The sentence: "Tho Republican paity cannot afford to follow tbe lead of a branded criminal," is struok out all together, and later on .where it was said: Ho stands a convicted criminal before tbe Bar of the publio opinion." THE UUANT MONUMENT. John u. Duncan's Design Choeen-A Truncated Pyramid, With Dome. Tbo executive committee of tbe Grant Monument Association have deoided that tho plan for the monument submitted by Architect John II. Duncan, of 238 Broadway, was the best of tbo five plans they had to consider, and tbey formally recommended its acoeptanoe by the association, Bubjeot to whatever ohangeB or modification the committee and the architect might agree upon. The New York Sun gives tbe following description of Mr. Duncan's design. The general shape provided for is a pile of granite' or marble, 100 feet square and rising 100 feet, whether as a oube or as a truncated pyramid could not be ascertained. On top of it will be a dome 70 feet high, the ornamentation will be simple, and the architecture severely Doric. Tbe dome will be surmounted with sculptured figures, the nature of wbich will be determined by tbe committee, tbe sculptor and the architect later on. In the tbe design there are statutes of four of tbe generals who were on General Grant's staff. Thirty feet below the top of the dome there will be a row of windows. Tbere will be four entrances at the base. Tbe main entrance will be a gateless portico, an addition to the general design. In front of this entrance there will be a colossal equestrian statue of General Grant. The crypt will be 85 feet by 75, opou to tbe top of the dome. One bnndred and thirty feet from tbe base tbore will be an immense gallery where visitors may go. Tbe row of Windows mentioned will be open on this gallery. The main room in the orypt will be a memorial hall, where more than a thousand parsons oan gather. On one side is an apsis, and an opening through tbe floor. In this opening will be placed a granite sarcophagns for the bodies'of General and Mrs. Grant. Tbe floor of the crypt will lead up to it. There will bo another marble staircase inside the crypt leading to the gallery. Tbis stair case winds upward' part of tbe way, and part of tbe way it is straight. It is planned so as to fill space that oan be occupied no otber way. Tbere are little nooks and corners in the base of the orypt where battle flags and trophies may be displayed. Tbere are a dozen plaoeB at the base where sculptured work may be placed if the committee wants it. There are other places for statues sad the like all the way up the interior of the dome and on and around the gallery in the dome but if the committee wants any ornamentation in that line it will bave to pay extra for it. The cost of the strnoture,. inolnding no sculptural work except the statue of Grant in front of the main entrance. Is to be $500,000. This does not even include the statute to surmount tbe dome. The monument can be bnilt on tbe installment plan. Tbe committee now bas $140,000, and it can go ahead and build np to tbe dome. Tbe architect' says tbat wheu tbat muob is spent any one who bas not seen tbe original design will not know but that the whole thing is complete. The convenience, one of tbe committee said, was one of the reasons for selecting this particular design. The otber des'gns tbat were submitted were not so well arranged for installment work. Some of them were a good deal more elaborate. Letter List. Following is a list of letters remaining unoalled for in tbe Lock Haven Postoffice up to Saturday, Sept. 13,1890: Earnest N.
