Mr. and Mrs. Herbert M. Daggett, of 306 East Second street will celebrate their golden wedding anniversary Monday, December 15. It was half a century ago, in Parishville, St. Lawrence county, this state, that Miss Myra Shepard Smith, age (couldn't read) and Herbert Martin Daggett, age (couldn't read) were united in marriage. In 1887 they moved to Elmira, where Mr. Daggett and S. C. Woodside bought the Tomlinson photo- graphic business, then located on Baldwin street. Later the Elmira Portrait Company was formed, the third member of the company being A. O. Adams, now of Cascade Locks, Ore., a brother-in-law of Mrs. Daggett. Some years later Mr. Daggett bought out this business, and until recently he conducted the well known Daggett Art Store. One year ago he sold out and retired from fusiness, since which time he has been con- tinuing in a modest way to sell pictures and make frames at his residence, 306 Second street. Mr. and Mrs. Daggett have always been actively identified with the Lake Street Presbyterian Church, where they have both taught Bible classes many years, and where Mr. Daggett waw for a long time superintendent of the Sunday school. They were pioneers in the temperance movement. Mrs. Daggett was county president of the W.C.T.U. for several years, and both have always been connected with every charity and movement for community betterment. Five children have been born to them, of which three are living: Mabel C. Daggett, a teacher of French in the Girls' High School, Brooklyn: H. Myron Daggett, purchasing agent for the United States Industrial Alcohol Company of New York City, and Gertrude E. Daggett, general secretary of the Y.W.C.A. of Lewiston, Maine. There is one grandchild, Eldred Herbert Daggett, 16 years of age, son of Myron and Jesie Eldred Daggett of New York City. It being impossible for the children to be home for a celebration of this golden wedding on the 15th of December, Mr. and Mrs. Daggett took a "Golden Wedding Trip" during the month of October, visiting their children in New York and Lewiston, and having "the time of their young lives," as Mr. Daggett so charac- teristically expresses it. Aside from Mr. Daggett's lameness, both Mr. and Mrs. Daggett are in excellent health and are radiating happiness to all those with whom they come in contact, as has been their wont throughout their long and useful lives. Browning's well known lines from "Rabbi Ben Ezra," seem particularly fitting to Mr. and Mrs. Daggett at this time: "Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the first was made: Our times are in His hand Who saith, 'A whole I planned, Youth show but half; trust God; see all, nor be afraid.'"

Seldom does the city lose a lady of more beautiful character, consistent piety and charity and kindly and lovable personality than Mrs. Rockwell. Since removing to this city, thmrty-two years ago,she has constantly endeared herself to her many friends whom she made and whose death will be mourned as will that of few ladies in our community. Mrs. Rockwell was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Abram B. Heckman and was born in the town of Lansing, Tompkins county, February 17, 1841. Her parents later removed to Angelica, Allegany county, and in 1863 she came to Elmira with her sister, the late Mrs. Jackson Richardson. In September, 1871, she was married to Major Rockwell. There were three children born to them, only one of whom, Rena, is left with her father, to mourn the irreparable loss which has come up on them. She is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. D. Davenport, of Paw Paw, IL, and Mrs. William T. Riley, of Hailey, ID.

(Tracey) - The Last Sad Scene of the Tragedy Enacted in Washington Monday Morning, A White House Funeral. The Solemn Service in The Historic East Room Over the Remains of the Wife and Daughter of Secretary of the Navy Tracy. Washington, Feb. 5, - The beautiful history East Room of the Executive Mansion, the scene of so many varied spectacles of brilliant ceremony or social gayety, was today devoted to the sadly contrasted and solemnly impressive purpose of a funeral. Very seldom has any similar scene been witnessed at the White House, and never since 1865, when the remains of the lamented Lincoln reposed amid the same surroundings. The service over the remains of the wife and daughter of the Secretary of the Navy were appointed for 11 o'clock, but long before that hour the East room was crowded with people desirous to pay their last tribute to their departed friends. It was a most distinguished gathering, and included nearly everybody of prominence in Washington. Arrangements have been made for seating 350 persons, but over 500 gained entrance. All the doorways leading to the East room were also thronged with people, and it is estimated that there were nearly 1,000 persons in the house. As far as possible admission was confined to the personal and official friends of Secretary Tracy and his family, and consequently very few strangers were present. A great crowd gathered outside however, and watched the carriages as they drove into the grounds. It was found necessary to station police at the gates to keep out the crowd. The casket containing the dead were placed side by side under the control chandelier and directly opposite the main corridor. They were distinguishable only by the greater size of the one containing the body of Mrs. Tracy. A large Sago palm with graceful spreading branches was placed between them at the foot. The sombre drapings of the caskets were almost entirely concealed by the beautiful designs of emblematic flowers, white roses, camelias, hyacinths and lillies of the valley. Garlands and wreaths were also banked against the sides of each casket. The pall-bearers for Mrs. Tracy were Secretary Window, Secretary Prector, Attorney General Miller, Secretary Noble, Postmaster General Wanamaker, Secretary Rusk, Admiral Porter, Rear Admiral Rodgers, Gen. Scofield and J. S. T. Stranahan of Brooklyn. The pall-bearers for Miss Tracy were Passed Assistant Surgeon W. A. McClurg, Passed Assistant Surgeon Robert Whiting, Passed Assistant Paymaster Charles M. Ray, Passed Assistant Paymaster A. K. Micheler and Messrs. John Biddle, Frank Lee, Fred McKellen and Charles Johnson. Both bodies were borne by sailors detailed from the Despatch. Shortly before 11 o'clock the Schubert Quartette stationed within the entrance to the East room form the main corridor sang the hymn "I Cannot Always Trace the Way." The members of the Cabinet, with the exception of Secretary Blaine, acting as pall-bearers soon after entered and took seats at the right of the caskets. They were soon followed by the funeral procession, Secretary Tracy and his son Frank were .....arm and arm at the head. They were followed by Gen. Catlin, A. B. Catlin, Robert Graves and daughter and other relatives. A short space behind them came President and Mrs. Harrison, Mr. and Mrs. McKee, Secretary and Mrs. Blaine, Rev. Dr. Sesby, the President's father-in-law, H. B. Raymond and Lieutenant Mason and E. H. Halford. As soon as they were seated the choir of St. John's Episcopal church, consisting of sixteen white surpliced boys and four men, under the direction of William H. Daniel, the precentor, entered the main corridor from the far end, and as they passed along its length with slow and measured step sang as a processional the hymn "Lead Kindly Light." Rev. Dr. William Douglas, rector of St. John's P. E. church and Rev. George Elliott, pastor of ........... Foundry M. E. church, entered the ....... of the choir and took their places near the caskets. Dr. Douglas immediately began the Episcopal burial service, "I am the resurrection and the life." At its conclusion the choir sang the hymn "Jesus, Lover of My Soul." The Scripture lesson was read by Rev. Mr. Elliott. The choir then sang "Rock of Ages." A prayer, read by Dr. Douglas, concluded the sermon. The President, with Secretary Tracy and his son, first .......out of the room and next to them came Frank Tracy, who was so overcome that he had to be supported by two ushers. Following the procession came the choir singing "Abide With Me." The scene ........was most impressive. The caskets were removed to the hearse and the funeral procession was formed, the cortage moving slowly to Rock Creek Cemetery, where the bodies were placed in a receiving vault. Secretary Tracy did not go to the cemetery as it was feared the task might prove too much for his strength. The President occupied a carriage with Frank Tracy. A long line of carriages followed the remains to the cemetery. VISITING HIS DEAD Secretary Tracy wanted to walk to the White House yesterday as he felt strong enough to do so, but it was thought best for him to use a carriage. Some time after his arrival he was, at his request, taken into the East room and shown the caskets containing the remains of his wife and daughter. They were covered with beautiful flowers (the tributes of loving friends) and branches of the Sago palm were laid across the top and along the sides of each casket. Standing at the head between them both was a large palm tree. The Secretary was much affected by the sight and sobbed though his heart would break. The casket containing Mrs. Tracy's body was opened and he was allowed to look upon her face for the last time. The other body was in no condition for inspection. THE QUEEN'S SYMPATHIES Last evening Sir Julian Pauncefoto received the following message: Osborne, Feb. 4, To the British Minister, Washington: Queen deplores calamity to Mr. Tracy's family; enquires after him and survivors. Ponsonby. To this Secretary Tracy replied as follows: "Mr. Tracy begs the British Minister to convey to Her Majesty his sincere thanks for her gracious message of sympathy, and in reply to her kind inquiry to say that his surviving daughter and grandchild are out of danger."
SATTERLEE - Sudden Demise of One of Elmira's Highly Respected Citizens. The news of the sudden death of Elias B. Satterlee from heart failure was heard with profound sorrow in many homes this morning. Mr. Satterlee was apparently in his usual health last evening. He passed the evening in his but about 10 o'clock, whe started for his room, he complained of a slight headache. At about 11 o'clock, after he had retired, he was found to be in an alarming condition. The nearest physician, Dr. Stagg, was immediately called and a carriage was sent for Dr. Wales the family physician. Everything that medical skill could devise was done for the restoration of the patient, and in about an hour the sufferer partially regained consciousness. He sank rapidly, continuing in a semi-conscious state until 2 o'clock when death relieved his agony. The death of Mr. Satterlee is an overwhelming blow to his family and friends. Since his serious illness three years ago, when he was stricken with apoplexy, the members of his family have feared a second attack of the same disease. Mr. Satterlee had, however, since that time attended regularly to his commission business and was quite strong and well. The first symptoms of illness last evening alarmed his wife and son and every attention and care which might relieve his suffering was immediately administered by them. Mr. Satterlee's only daughter, Miss Augusta Satterlee was absent from the city, spending some time with relatives in Ithaca and was called home to learn the terrible news of her father's death. The darkening of a happy home by such a sudden and grievous affliction is indeed a mysterious and inscrutable ensample of the hidden ways of a loving Heavenly Father. Even the grief and sympathy of friends is insignificant when the loving husband and father is so suddenly removed from the home where he was beloved and honored. Elias B. Satterlee was the son of Timothy Satterlee and Mary Seeley Satterlee, two of the earliest settlers in this part of the state. Of a family of four children Elias B. Satterlee was the second child and the youngest son. His death is the first that has occurred in his father's family since the death of his parents. He was born in Elmira and his life was passed in the city of his birth. He received his education in the schools of the city and after leaving school he went into the dry goods store of John R. Jones. In this store and in the store of Tuttle, Brooks & Co., he learned the business. He left the last named firm to establish a grocery business on the south side of Water street on the site now occupied by Geo. Bower's clothing store. He afterwards gave up the grocery business and in the firm of E. B. Satterlee & Co., established a drygoods business in the same store. After many years in this firm, Mr. Satterlee again established himself in the grocery business on the corner of Main and Third streets, continuing in business there until a few years ago. Since giving up the grocery business, Mr. Satterlee has been actively engaged in the commission business. In May 7, 1863, Mr. Satterlee married Miss Cornelia L. Ferris, daughter of the late Myron J. Ferris of this city. Three children were born to them, of whom the youngest, Albert F., died in September 1871, in infancy. Harry T. Satterlee, freight agent for the E.C. & N. in this city and August L. Satterlee with their mother, survive the father and husband. Of his father's family, one brother, A. S. Satterlee of this city and two sisters, Mrs. R. W. Barton of this city and Mrs. Jesse T. Seely of Lake City, Minnesoto, are still living. The death of Elias B. Satterlee removes not only a representative of one of the oldest families in Elmira, but an honored Christian man, devoted member of the Lake street Presbyterian church. His death is sincerely and grieviously felt by family, friends, and the community.
Fred Douglass and his wife will indoubtedly favor the establishment of the proposed mighty nation in Africa by the colored people of this country.

CLARK - Lines Written on the Death of Two Estimable Young Ladies. Written by their father, W. J. Clark, in memory of Miss Hattie and Nettie M. Clark, who died on Coburn street, Elmira, NY. Hattie's death occurred February 2, 1890 and Nettie's February 7, only five days later. Hattie's age was twenty-four years and three months, and Nettie's eighteen years and ten months, the daughters of Mr. and Mrs. William J. Clark. These young ladies were the dependance of an aged, infirm and almost blind mother, upon whom this blow falls a terrible force and leaves a home broken and desolate. They were their only daughters, and upon whom the mother depended for the care of the household. Their last dying words were: "Who will care for mother now?" Who will whisper words of comfort, Who will dry the falling tear, From our earthly home we're leaving, Who will care for mother now. Our loving Hattie, she is gone, And darling Nellie how we miss, Never more on earth to greet them With that welcome good-night kiss. Yes, they've left this world of care, And are now among the blessed: Our heavenly father took our loved ones To that "haven of rest, sweet rest." They have left all earthly sorrows, And are freed from earth's deceits,They have joined the heavenly circle Gathered ‘round the Savior's feet. Years that's passed our children blessed us With their joyous winning smiles, Making home to us a blessing, Now they've left this world of guile. There in realms of bliss they dwelleth, Far beyond our longing sight, In the Savior's heavenly mansion,Where can come no sin or blight. In the night we dream about them, Through the day they are in each thought, And all through life we'll miss the sunshine That their welcome presence brought. Oh! How oft we'll watch their coming, As we have in days gone by, But we know our precious daughters Dwell with angels in the sky. Farwell now, my loving children, You on earth we'll see no more, But in heaven, with joy to greet thee. On that bright and shining shore.

Late Thursday afternoon the startling announcement was made the Lehman Rosenbaum, one of Elmira's oldest merchants had suddenly died at his store, 201 East Water street. Hundreds of friends crowded the store to ascertain if the sad news was true. Investigation revealed the fact, that, alas! the report was well founded. At 4:30 o'clock Thursday afternoon Mr. Rosenbaum attended of the board of directors of the Elmira National Bank, of which he is was a member, and returned to his store in apparent good health and spirits. He entered his private office and a few minutes later a noise as though some one had fallen heavily was heard by his son, Martin Rosenbaum, who rushed to the office to find his father lying on the floor. Dr. C. M. Brown was summoned but arrived too late to render any aid. He was conscious for a few moments and spoke to those about him but soon relapsed in a state of unconsciousness, expiring at 5 o'clock, his passing away being peaceful and painless. Death resulted from heart disease, of which the deceased had been a sufferer for a number of years. A few weeks ago he was afflicted with a slight attack of pneumonia, but had recovered and apparently regained his vigor and strength. Mr. Rosenbaum was born in Bavaria not quite seventy-two years ago, and came to this country when he was twenty-three years of age. He began his successful business career in Elmira twenty-six years ago, and retired from the firm of L. Rosenbaum & Sons, a substantial and prosperous business house, in February of last year. After he came to this country, he engaged in business at Wilkesbarre, PA, where his two sons were born, and for a period of ten years before he removed to Elmira, conducted a dry goods store at Montrose, PA. A third child, a daughter, met her death by an accident at Binghamton ten years ago. Mr. Rosenbaum was the first president of the High street temple, and took a warm interest in the affairs of his church. He was an influential Mason, being a member of the Chapter and of Union lodge, of this city. He had been in failing health for some time preceding his death, and his son, Henry, who had gone to New York the day before his father died, was hurriedly summoned home by the telegraphic announcement of his demise. The directors of the Elmira Second National bank, at a meeting held yesterday, passed appropriate resolutions on the death of Mr. Rosenbaum, and introducing them, S. J. Friendly made an eloquent address .....nged with pathos and subdued sorrow. The directors of the bank sent to the residence a very beautiful floral offering as a token of respect at the loss of one who was a valued friend and business associate. Mr. Rosenbaum wa a man of numerous kindly characteristics. He was charitable and public-spirited, always taking a warm interest in the welfare of his adopted city. He was formerly one of the commissioners of the New York State reformatory, a position of trust and honor, which he filled to the satisfaction of the people and his friends. He was courteous and dignified in his demeanor and possessed the respect of all citizens. His death is a loss which is to be greatly deplored, as he was one of the foremost business men of the city of Elmira and had done much in his lifetime to advance its commercial prosperity and benefit its industries. Mr. Rosenbaum was a widower, his wife having died several years ago. He is survived by two sons, Martin Rosenbaum, recently appointed police commissioner, and Henry L., both members of the firm, which still retains the honored name of L. Rosenbaum & Sons. In their sudden and cruel bereavement they have the sympathy of the entire community. The funeral services will be held at the house this morning at 10:30 o'clock.

DILDINE - IN MEMORY Of William Dildine, Who Died in Ionia, Michigan, March 10, 1890 A precious one from us has gone, A voice we loved so well is still, A place is vacant in our home which we can never fill. God in his wisdom has recalled The boon his loved has given, And though the body slumbers here The soul is safe in heaven. Farewell, my wife, dear, farewell! Adrian, farewell to thee; And to you, my dear children, all, Farewell to all of you. Our father is gone and we are left, The loss of him we mourn, But may we hope to meet with him With Christ before God's throne. Call not back the dear departed Anchored safe where storms are o'er, On the border land we left him, Soon to meet and part no more; Far beyond this world of changes, Far beyond this world of care, We shall find our missing loved one In our father's mansion fair.

LINCOLN - THREE ABRAHAM LINCOLNS. They Were All Cut Down Suddenly By Indians, Assassin, and Surgeon. From the Chicago News. The sad fate of the great "Emancipator" hallowed the name of Lincoln. The recent death of little "Abe" in London has called renewed attention to the great President, his ancestors, and descendants. Popular knowledge of the family covers about two centuries. During that time alternate generations have produced three Abraham Lincolns, all of whom have died under circumstances that have riveted upon them the attention of Americans. The years 1786, 1865, and 1890 are memorable in Lincoln chronology, for in those years the grandfather of the President, President Lincoln himself, and his grandson fell--two by the ;hands of assassins, and the third by the hand of the surgeon, no less fell though better intentioned. The facts of the death of the President's grandfather are meagor. Descended from the good old Quaker stock of Pennsylvania and possessed of moderate means, he was one of the first to leave home in Rockingham county, Virginia, in 1780, to follow the lead of Daniel Boone into the wilds of Kentucky, taking him, his wife and five children. Prepared to brave dangers and hardships for a home, Abraham Lincoln bought 400 acres of land from the Government for L60. A spot in the forest was cleared, a log cabin was erected, and soon Lincoln found himself on the way to prosperity. The three sons--Mordecai, Josiah and Thomas--who partook of the father's ambition, helped him with a will. The little farm in the wilderness gradually broadened, and two additional tracts of land, one of 800 and the other of 500 acres, were taken. But fortune soon changed. One morning in 1786 Lincoln and his three sons went out to the edge of the clearing, and scarcely had work begun when a shot from the bush killed the father. Mordecai immediately ran to the cabin for a gun and Josiah to Hughes' station for assistance, while Thomas was left with his father's body. Mordecai got the gun and was just in time to save his brother's life by shooting the Indian who was about to kill him. The murdered man was buried where he fell, and soon after the family for better protection moved to a thicker settled portion of the wilderness, where Mordecai, with the settled hate that is born of unforgiven wrong, became an Indian-stalker, who slew the redskins on no other provocation then mere sight. Two generations later the second Abraham Lincoln was exalted from the position of an obscure lawyer to that of President of the United States--and honor which he bore with courage and fortitude and paid for with his life. All are familair with the story of his assassination. Another break of a generation in the transmission of names and the Abraham appeared in the family as the son of Robert T. Lincoln, the American Minister. HILL - LEE HILL'S FEARFUL FATE, While Attending a Private Party, He Falls From a Window And is Fatally Injured-The Scene of the Tragic Event Was Rusling's Hall, Lawrenceville, PA-A beloved and Brilliant Young Man Cut Off In the Beginning of a Useful Career - A Graphic Account of the Terrible Accident.[Special Correspondence of the Telegram.] Lawrenceville, PA, July 19, ....... - A most deplorable accident occurred at Rusling's hall, this borough, last Tuesday evening about midnight, resulting in the death of Lee Hill, a young man twenty-one years of age. The Acorn club, composed of some of the young people of the village, were having a private dancing party in the hall, which is situated upon the second floor of the Rusling block, and the causes which led to the accident were about as follows: Two windows at the south end of a room overlooked the one-story flat roofed office of Wing & Bostwick. The ..... of the hall at this side is raised to with-..........ow inches of the window sills, the office ....... being about eighteen inches below the ..............d extending from this point about mid- .......across the window upon the right to an .......of the main building just beyond the second window. Owing to the excessive heat in the hall all of the windows were raised, and some party had removed both the upper and lower sash from the right hand window, and parties HAD BEEN PASSING to the roof of the office at various times during the evening to enjoy the cooler atmosphere, passing through the left hand window. This was comparatively safe, if one did not go too near the outer edge of the roof, and one could have stepped from the other window upon the roof also, but it was dangerous on account of the narrow edge presented, especially at night. Mr. Hill had been dancing with Miss K..ie Kuhl, and feeling the effects of the heat he proposed that they pass out upon the roof for a few moments and get some fresh air before the next dance, but they made the fatal mistake of attempting to pass out of the window upon the right. Arriving at the window, Miss Kuhl allowed her escort to precede her that he might assist her down to the roof below, still resting her hand lightly upon his arm. As he stepped down she heard his foot touch the roof; the he plunged headlong into the darkness below. A SICKENING THUD from out of the gloom told the awful result, as it flashed through her mind that he had fallen. With a half-suppressed scream she attracted those nearest her, and told, in a few broken words, the facts. He was found to have struck his head against the corner of a step fracturing his skull and producing internal injuries. Tenderly he was borne to the hall above, and Dr. Darling, who was present, after a hasty examination, had him taken to his home - that home from which but a few hours before, he had kissed his darling mother a fond good-night. Here he lingered, surrounded by kind friends, in an unconscious state until Thursday noon, when he quietly breathed his last. The deceased was the only son of ex-Burgess James N. Hill, and a highly valued clerk in the store of Wing & Bostwick, of this village. Lee was blessed with one of these genial, sunny temperaments that endered him to all who knew him; a noble boy of excellent habits; his mother's pride; one of those boys that is an honor for any community to own, and his sudden and tragic death has cast a deep gloom over the entire community. ONE OF THOSE STRANGE unexplained cases of presentiment occurred in connection with this accident. His aged grandmother, with whom he was a great favorite, makes her home with the family in Lawrenceville, but at the time of the accident was visiting relatives at Beaver Dams, NY. The old lady arose upon the following morning and told her friends that she must return immediately to Lawrenceville, as she had a strange presentiment of trouble at home and refused to be disuaded from her purpose. She took the first train, arriving home at 11 o'clock a. m., and knew nothing of the accident until informed by the ‘bus driver at the Lawrenceville depot upon her arrival.
