The conn-try at large is satisfied with bis work, aod New York will have to be. The Democrat* should have turned on the light last night that the people might dissover the big parade that was announced to take place. It didn't require any light, however, for everybody to see that it was one of the grandest fizzles ever seen Is Lock Haven. These is sure to be fnn in tbe next Congress.

Judge Thurman replied tbat no years of future acts of bis could possibly increase the warmest of tbe congratulations which he bad. received to-day from all parts ot the United States, and that be was continually asking himself whether hia servioes had been really such as deserve all this homage. From Judge Thurman'a residence Cleveland returned to Governor Campbell's mansion, where he and a few most intimate friends were entertained at luncheon. a NOTABLE GATHERING. At the banquet hall to-nigbt tbe decorations were perfeoted under the artistic hands of qualified workmen, and wore a marvel of imposing beauty. It is seldom tbat so many distinguished men of a party assemble at one time end pl-aee except on the occasion of a national cooventiou. Among them was the only Democratic ex-President liriog, Congressmen, ex-Cou-gressmen and Congressmen elect. Senators, and ex-8enators, Governors, ex-Governors and Governors elect, besides gentlemen wbo have distinguished themselves in various obannels of public and private life, all here to do honor to the noblest "Old Romas" of them all, Judge Alien G. Thurman. The list ol distinguished Visitors and those who occupied seats at tbe banquet table was not composed exclusively of Democrats. There were a number of Re-pabtieaos here from Ohio and elsewhere who cams not as partisans but as citizens to show their appreciation of tbe public service rendered by Judge Thurman. Tbe visitors eame from all parts of the aountry far and near. The Democrats of oourse predominated, as the banquet was projected by a Democratic club and given in honor of tbe birthday of a distinguished member of that party. As early as 7 o'clock the banqueters began to arrive and take seats at the table. THE OLD TICKET ASM IS ARM It was just 8 o'clock when ex-Presldeot Cleveland and Judge Thurman entered1 tbe room. Tbey were aim in arm, the ex-President supporting his venerable companion, who was /rutber assisted by a osne, and who walked slowly up tbe ball, his limping gait attesting to the inroads of biB old enemy, the rheumatism, had made open his vigorous frame. A mighty cheer want up from a thousand throats as the audience caught sight of the two distinguished guests of tbe evening, �ud this cheer waa prolonged and thrice repeated ere the procession reached the upper end ol tbe hall. following ex-President and Judire Thurman as they catered tbe room which had been reserved for the speakers of the evening, werei Congressman.

After a few minutes rest the party rose and accompanied by the speakers of the evening entered tbe ball and took their seats at tbe grand eentral table. It was at this stage tbat ebo greatest demonstration oi the evening took place. Cbcor alter oheer arose from the enthusiastic audience and simultaneously every man arose from his seat and waved the traditional red bandanna hand* kerchief io honor of tbe Old Raman. With dignity, yet smilingly, Thurman bowed to his one thousand frantic admirers, and Urover Cleveland did likewise. As tbe cheers for the ex-President rent the air the band struck up the "Star Spangled Banner," and all remained standing until the close. Then at a signal from the obair-man the vest multitude sank into seats at the festive board, and the banquet be gan- we si'eec/ies. At the conclusion of the banquet John J. LentK, ahairmau of the Th,u.toM.u Club, delivered an address of welcome, his reference to ex-l'reBident Cleveland and Judge Thurman being received with prolonged cheerR and applause. Io concluding he introduced Congressman Outh-walte, the toastmaster of the evening, who j briefly eulogized judge Thurman sdu closed with tbe toast: "To the health, long life and continued happiness of our guest." It was five minutes before tbe ovation which greeted the toast subsided sufficiently to enable Judge Thurman to respond. Be confined himself principally to personal reminiscences, and in concluding referred to the publishsd statement suggesting his name lor the Presidency or Vioe-Presidency. He declared in %\\ sincerity, and without the least mental reservation, that he was not and never would again be a candidate for office. Be had been sufficiently honored by his party, and neither asked nor desired any further honor than cautioned friendship and good will. Ex-President Cleveland was tbe next introduced, and responded to the toast; "Citizenship of America." Every allusion to Judge Thurman was oheered to tbe echo and tbe sentiments ot Mr. Cleveland in regard to the policy of the party found a hearty echo to those assembled.

Victir Hugo sails this "the woman's century," and he might have added that it ia tbe children's century as well, for never before iu the world's history has eo much thought been paid to children-their schools, their books, their pictures and their toy*. Childhood, as we understand it, is a recent disoovery, fp to the time of the issae of tbe "St. Nicholas Magazine" seventeen yaen ago, literature and children's magazines were almost contradictory term*, bat the new periodical stiated out with the idea, that nothing was too good for children; the result ha* been a juvenile magazine genuine with the conscientious purpose-the greatest writers contributing to It, witb the beet artists and engravers helping to beautify it-and everything turned to the keynote of youtb. It has been the special aim of "St. Nioholas" to supplant unhealthy literature with stories of a living and healthful interest. It will not do to take fascinating bad literature out of boy*' band*, and give them in it* place Mrs. Barbauld and Peter Parley, or the work ot writers who think that any "good-y" talk will do for children, but they must have strong. Interesting reading, with tbe blood and sinew of real life In it,-reading that will waken them to a oloser observation of the best things about them. In the seventeen yeata of its Ufa "St. Nioholaa" bas not only elevated the children, bnt it has also elevated the tone of contemporary children's literature aa well. Many of it* storiee, like Mis. Burnett's "Little Lord Faontleroy," have beoome classic. It Is not too much to say that almost every notable young people's story now produced in America first seeks tho light in the pages of that magazine. Tbe year 1891 will prove once more that "no household where there are children Is complete without'St. Nicholas.'", J. T. .
