  Interest in the meetings of the Literary Society still keeps up to a high degree.
   Two weddings here, on the eveing of the 6th, were events somewhat surprising, after a long interval in that line of things.
   The New England Supper at Miss Bell's last week Wednesday evening, attracted a large number of persons noted for appetite and taste, and these were satisfied to the fullest extent; but the interest centered mainly upon the characters personated and "ye antieut" costumes which befitted the personations.  Among those attracting most attention were Miss Algie Reynolds, spinster; Miss S. Foster, Quakeress; Miss E.J. White, lady; Mrs. Fred Saxton, English girl; Mrs. C. H. Brockett, old woman; Geo Cavert, George Washington; Stephen Hayes, Quaker; Fred Saxton, and others, gentlemen of the school;  Willie Crand and C. H. Brockett, revolutionary officers; John Smealie, military.  The Quaker Courtship, by Miss Ida Betts and Stephen Hayes, was well rendered.  The Little Old Woman, by Miss Betts, was heartily encored.  The recitation by Miss Anna Knox was very fine.  The supper was given by the members and for the benefit of the Presbyterian church. 

   The funeral of Mrs. John Cavert was attended at the Presbyterian church on last Saturday.  The sermon was by Rev. C. W. Backus, late pastor of this church.    H. F. Near, a member of the M. E. church of Charlton and Burnt Hills, died on the 11th.  He was an exemplary Christian identified long with Methodism in the city of Albany.
   It is late, yet due to the memory of a worthy young man to make the following brief  mention of the death of Edwin A. Kingsley, age 35 years.  He was the youngest son of Joseph and Eliza T. Kingsley.  He was graduated at Union College in 1869, and was admitted to the bar in 1870.  He then began the practice of law in Norwich, Chenango County, but in 1872 removed to Syracuse, where he became and active member  of the Syracuse Central Baptist church.  He was ambitious and talented, but his health gave way, and he was obliged to stop practice in 1880.  Thus do the fondest earthly hopes decay.   

Burnt Hills 
  The Rev. Mr. Wyman of Galway preached in the Baptist church Sunday. The 14th annual meeting of the Ballston Horse Owner's Association was held at the Stickles Hotel on Monday of this week.  The following officers were elected:  Robert O. Davis, President; Geo. C. Valentine and Robert Kennedy, Vice Presidents; I. P. Qhivey, Treasurer; H. V. Calkins, Corresponding Secretary.
   Henry Larkin, a five year old son of Anson Larkin, broke his leg by jumping from a beam in his barn on Friday of last week.  It was broken at the ankle joint or,  as the flowreey reporter of the Schenectady Union would probably say, it was "a compound, complicated, comminuted, fracture of the lower third," however, the skin is not broken and the little fellow is doing well.  

   Cornelia Young is quite sick.  Doctor Lawrence is in attendance.
   David F. Collamer has lost four fat pigs.  He found them in his pen dead all at once.
   Some sneak thief poisoned Philip Riley's dog on the night of February 7.  If it was for some object, he has better not carry it out. 
   Charles P. Riley has bought the right of Schenectady county on a pattern gate, which may be seen at Hayner's Hotel piazza, Ballston Spa.  Look at it.  

Ketchum's Corners      Isaac F. Wing has had a new and larger engine and boiler put in his grist mill.
   Rev. J. M. Chrysler of Stillwater paid his monthly visit and preached in the Presbyterian church here last Sunday.
   Charles Lohnas has sold his wagon shop, blacksmith shop and dwelling house situated here to thomas W. Myers, who will take possession March 1st.
   The fourth and last quarterly meeting for the year will be held in the M. E. church on Sunday.  Presiding Elder Griffin is expected to be present.  

East Galway      John Armatage, the veteran fox hunter, has "been gone, and done it" again.  Monday morning he shot two foxes that were running before his dog; they were side by side and fell within ten feet of each other.  He was fone from the house not more than an hour and a half.  Score another for Armatage.  

South Ballston      The sale of the Briggs property which was to have come off on Monday, was postponed to teh 2s day of April next.
   It is announced hat Jas. P. Smith has succeeded in compromising with most of his creditors at a discount of 50 percent.   

Batchellerville      W. E. Snow is out again after his illness.
   The mother of F. Austin died at his home on Monday.
   H. G. Lapham of Glen's Falls wil lecture on gospel temperance in the Presbyterian church Feb 18.  

Ballston Centre      N. R. Curtis is about to build a fine barn 30x96; James Norris of Ballston Spa has the contract.

At the Commercial Hotel, Saratoga Springs, Feb. 12, 1883 by Rev. George A. Smith, EDWARD F JENKINS and LOUISE HEDDEN of Glenville,N.Y.

In Ballston Spa, Feb.13, 1883, NELLIE DUBOIS, age 11 years.

Smith Dubois, a well known teamster, died last Saturday morning. He was about forty years of age and leaves a family. His oldest child died about a week previous, and the only remaining child is sick. He was a member of the Good Templar's Lodge and of the Reform Temperance Union. 
The death of Mrs. Melissa H. Smith which occurred at her home (in the Esmond block) on Wednesday last at 5 A.M. was a sudden surprise to her friends in this village. Her sickness was of five days duration, having just commenced with a slight cold which was followed on Monday by a mild attack of pneumonia. For some time she had been subject to a cough which had greatly weakened her condition to such an extent that her system was unable to stand the ravages of the generally fatal disease. Mrs. Smith died at the age of 7? , and was the widow of the late Hawley Smith of Charlton who died in 1874, at which time she removed to this village. The deceased leaves two daughters, and a brother, Amos Hewitt of Ballston, and three sisters living in Canada. Her funeral occurred at her late residence yesterday afternoon at 2 P.M. 
Death of a Nonogenarian 
The death of Gabriel T. Leggett who has resided for many years of the eastside of Saratoga Lake, occurred Monday at the homestead, the present residence of his son, John Leggett and family. Mr. Leggett was a sterling old Quaker and had reached the remarkable age of almost 90 years. 
Death of S.H. VanSteenburgh 
S.H. Van Steenburgh, formerly proprietor of the bakery in this village, died at his home in Mechanicville on Saturday Feb. 24, and his remains were interred here under the management of the Odd Fellows assisted by the Knights of Pythias on Tuesday. Mr. Van Steenburgh was about sixty years of age and leaves a wife and six children. His fatal disease was erysipelas.

A Home Wedding

A very pretty home wedding occurred on Saturday evening at 8:30 at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Beek of Saratoga avenue, by which Miss Ada Beek and George Bishop became man and wife. 
The ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr. Charles Pelletreau in the presence of about forty relatives and intimate friends. 
The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Nellie Beek, and groom by Sidney Bishop. 
The home was very prettily decorated with evergreens and cut flowers and the joy of the occasion was added to by several choice selections by Smith's orchestra.  A wedding supper was served. 
The bridal couple will reside on Saratoga avenue, where they will commence their new life with the best wishes of a large circle of friends. 

A Willard Memorial service will be held in the Baptist church next Sunday evening, when an interesting discourse on the life and works of Frances Willard, will be given by the pastor, Rev. J. Naylor. 
LaGrippe is still prevalent, also snow banks are plentiful. 
Rev. J. Naylor officiated at a funeral in East Galway last Tuesday. 
The public school did not observe Lincoln's birthday, although many of the pupils did. 
H. and A. Millham went to Amsterdam Monday. 
The Amsterdam stage driver has not missed a trip, when asked how he had managed on those cold stormy days, he said it was "grit." 
The subject for debate this week is "Resolved that silence produces greater results than noise."
