Mr. and Mrs. Jacob S. Wendell
Hold Reception at Home
Yesterday afternoon there was
great rejoicing at the home of Mr.
. and Mrs. Jacob S. Wendell, the cause
for which was the celebration of thlB
aged couple's fiftieth wedding anni
versary In their palatial home In the
southwest part of the city. Two hun
dred invitations were extended for
the reception, which was from 2 to 6
o'clock, and it Is needless to say that
many of their friends and neighbors
called during these hours and ex
tended their hearty congratulations
upon the completion of their fiftieth
wedding anniversary. Their chll-
dren, Mesdames Eliza Forbes and
Arabella' Gass, together with their
children, were present. Refreshments
were served during the reception
hours. Numerous articles appropriate
to the occasion were presented to the)
venerable couple; among"" which was
$75 in gold, which served as a gentle
reminder that this was their golden
wedding anniversary. Taken all In
all, it was a most enjoyable event,
and none seemed to enjoy It nore
than Mr. and Mrs. Wendell. '
Jacob Wendell was born In Sara
toga county, New York, on the 27th
day of January, 1830. Miss Marietta
A. Sherman was born In Pittstown,
New York, on the 2d day of October,
1835, and graduated In Fort Ed
ward, New York, teaching school for
a number of years. They were mar
ried at Pittstown on the 5th day of
October, 1859, and have lived a
happy, contented life. By trade Mr.
Wendell is a carpenter, and was em
ployed In the Burlington shops 1b ere
for twenty-three ' years. They are
most highly respected by all, as the
answer to the many invitations sent
out would denote. While old age
comes creeping along, and they have
not" yet reached the age alloted man
kind, the Journal, in extending con
gratulation's, hopes that Mr. and Mrs.
Wendell may live to celebrate their
one hundredth anniversary.
Store Robbed at Vnion.
Tuesday morning considerable ex

night and hoped to bag the villain.
The young man took his station In
the store In un easy chair with a
musket across his knee, and ns the
time dragged along and no burglar
came, the guard dropped to sleep. He
had not been In this peaceful state
long when the thief got in and began
to arrange to gather his swag. Before
the burglar was ready to depart the
proprietor of the store came In to see
what the guard had accomplished,
and found him sUll.ieposlng quiutly
In, his chair. Mr. Burglar had not
even taken his gun nway. The owner
heard i the thief in another part of
the store. He was so excited over
what be found' that ho could not
strike a match. He finally got the
watcher's gun, and the thief was all
the time dodging about in the rear
of. the store keeping hiniHelf behind
harrls-and boxes, going toward, the

that; he would not bo called upon, ID
asmuch as few political meetings are"
being arranged over the state. .
Mr, Sheldon said one reason why
he wished to withhold any decision
. on .the gubernatorial matter Is that
he does not want to. distract atten
tion from the present campaign
Aside from this, he thinks it too
early for those who may expoet to be
candidates next year to be launching
their booms. The extensive land
holdings of the ex-governor in Ne
