No. 19 Spruce Street yesterday morning Danville loss one of its sturdiest citizens. John Mcdermott s life was a Busy one. Born in county Longford Ireland seventy two years ago he emigrated to this country when 10 years of age. He was in Danville when the Plant owned by the Reading Iron company was built and was among the first to find employment there. He became a Heater and in that capacity he continued to labor until some ten years ago. When tie infirmities incidental to declining years obliged him to seek some less arduous work. For some years prior to his death he was employed As watchman at the Wall Street crossing of the d l. Amp w. Railroad. The deceased was a Soldier in the mexican War and so far As known is the Only survivor of that conflict residing in Danville or in this Section. During tin civil War As a member of the cavalry he saw service for four years. At the close of the civil War be was transferred to the Western Frontier where for some six years he participated in the different Indian wars. Altogether about twelve years of Bis life were devoted to the service of his adopted country. John Mcdermott was a Man who was respected wherever he was known. Few men had a Keener sense of Honor or a Keener sense of Justice. His word once Given was As True As his Bond. A Man of intelligence he read widely while his varied experiences in life gave him a store of practical information that made him an authority on Many subjects. He represented the third Ward in the school Board of Danville for Many years. He was one of the most progressive members always approachable and kind ready to espouse the cause of either teacher or Pupil when they seemed to be in any sense the victim of injustice. The deceased was afflicted with heart trouble and dropsy. Although ill for a year and a half he was confined to his bed Only since Friday of last week. He passed away at 12 48 a. M. Yesterday. The funeral will take plan Friday next at 10 a. M. The deceased is survived by his wife and three children George of Lochiel and William Ami Kate who reside at the parental Home. Friday next flood and drought due to destruction of forests. Or Laumaster general Secretary w. D. Laumaster tuesday assumed tin general Secretary ship of the y. M. C. A. His presence with its old time cordiality seemed to invest the building with a familiar atmosphere. He received Many kindly greetings during the Day from members and others who dropped into the building. It is too Early for or. Laumaster to announce any plans for the coming year if is understood however that the general Secretary will not be Idle and what Ever measures be inaugurates to help tin work along will be practical in their nature and in full Accord w Ith religious Precept. Or. Laumaster has earned the Confidence of the Public along All lines of work As was attested by the unanimity with which he was recalled to the general Secretary ship. He now has a right to expect the support Ami co operation of All Christian people. Governor Stone has appointed Friday. April 4th. As the first of the two Spring Arbor Days the second following on the 18th,inst. The governor urges that the Day he observed by planting Trees citing the recent floods and storms As an added argument in favor of restoring the forests of the state. It must indeed be a poorly informed person who at this time would ignore tin value of forests or even of a moderate acreage of Woodland in regulating the rainfall and restraining the flow of water when the Snow piled up among tin mountains begins to melt under the increasing warmth of the Sun As Spring approaches. The protracted droughts As Well As the devastating floods which result in damage yearly that can be measured Only by millions Are alike attributable to the denudation of our country of its Timber. These Are established facts based upon scientific observation and As such they Are taught in our Public schools. Arbor Day was instituted at least fifteen years ago. The event was observed with appropriate exercises in the schools As speaking for our own Borough it seems to be at present. But the Observance of Arbor Day was not considered Complete without tin actual planting of Trees. Thus tree planting in the child s mind was removed from the Domain of theory into that of practice. Even if the frail tree planted in the Earth failed to take Root it was Felt that some Good had been accomplished. Within recent years Arbor Day has added few if any Trees to the Borough. To what extent tree planting or forestry is dwelt upon in the Public schools of this Section we cannot say but the subject no doubt receives some attention. At All events it is hoped that the teaching will make itself Felt before Many years. In no part of the state is the merciless Slaughter of Timber carried Toa greater extent than in this Section. While the Commonwealth is doing what it can to restore Trees to denuded tracts the portable saw Mill hereabouts continues on its Mission of destruction. One by one the tracts of scrubby Timber which in their own Way contributed to the general Good disappear and the Hill sides and the Mountain tops denuded Barren and inaccessible to the plow lie uncultivated Aud desolate a blemish on the landscape.

Mis was an appliance which will prove a saving at the water works. Among the recent improvements at the water works is the instalment of a new Heater which will result in the saving of fuel to the amount of several Hundred dollars per year. The Heater is a Modem appliance which utilizes the exhaust of the engine to heat the water before it is sent into the boiler. Thus while in former times the water passed into the boilers ice cold it now enters heated up very near to the boiling Point and that too without a i cent of additional Cost. 1 the Heater just installed is something 1 Juite original in its Way designed by superintendent. P. Keefer for the special needs at tin water works and manufactured by Curry amp Hannau of this City. The Heater which contains fifty i Inch Copper tubes is 8 feet Long and la inches in diameter giving it a heating surface of Over four Hundred Square feet. It sends water into the boiler heated up to 210 degrees fahrenheit or 2 degrees below tin boiling Point. The old beater displaced in use by the one just installed had a heating surface of but 29 Square feet and was utterly inadequate As it was incapable of beating the water up to any higher Point than i 10 degrees.

The new boilers Are larger than those displaced and will necessitate considerable alterations about tin Mill the most important of which will be tin raising of the roof of each of tin lean tos. Tin impression is unfounded which seems to have got abroad that tin no. 2 puddle Mill is to be torn Down and rebuilt. The boilers will be installed one at a time so As not to interfere too much with tin Progress of work. Swipe Mincemoyer. Harry Shipe and mrs.
