Colonel William Linn inspector of 1 the state Highway department has arrived in this City and is snugly domiciled at the Montour House. He brings the Good news that not Only will the two sections of state Highway Between Danville and Mausdale he completed immediately Bat also that there Are no grounds for fear that the state will withhold Aid for the reconstruction of North Mill Street for that there will be any undue delay in getting the work under Way. On next monday Fiss amp Hartman who reconstructed the Section of Highway Between the Valley township line Aud a Point near Wise a hotel will be on the ground to Complete their work. Colonel Linn has appeared a few Days in Advance to inspect the Road Aud determine fully what remains to he dour in order to bring the Road up to specifications. Fiss amp Hartman we Ere obliged to leave the ground last fall before they had fully completed their we Ork. They had adopted the plan however of fully finishing the Highway Section by Section As they advanced so that when Winter set in Aud they were obliged to abandon the work although they had not applied the finishing touches to the farther end yet there was a Long stretch of the Road that was completed and turned Over to travel. Unfortunately the finished Road developed some weak spots where the wheels Cut through the Macadam and before the Winter was half Over depressions appeared that made it bad for vehicles Aud seemed out of place on state Highway where none but the Best of material is supposed to lie used and none but the most approved methods of construction employed. Colonel Linn explain that such defects Are Likely to occur in iia Cadam under certain conditions and an to he attributed neither to poor material nor to careless work. In the present instance the Limestone used happened to be of a sort that lacked cohesive qualities so that while generally in Macadam the tendency of the Limestone is to cohere Aud to become cemented together developing great resisting qualities of the Mausdale Road at certain spots it Lay like so Many Loose stones the result being that under heavy traffic deep ruts soon appeared. Colonel Linn states that it will Reflux re Little work to fix the Highway up As Good As new. The Road led May have to be reconstructed at a few spots but the Job will not take Long even with the work to finish that could not in completed last fall. At the furthest colonel Linn states that Fiss and Hartman ought to 1m off the ground ill three weeks time. The Maryland construction company will also probably be of the ground next week. As before explained the last named company have to go Over their entire Section of Highway re Crown aug the Road. After this is done the inspector states the Highway will show up in excellent shape and will really be a Fine piece of work. Colonel Linn regards the reconstruction of North Mill Street As an improvement which ought to be pushed through without a bit of delay. It seems to fill the Bill completely As one of those propositions that the Sproul act of May 1st., 190.was designed to cover. He agrees with Council that a sewer should be Laid of the East Side of the Street to take care of the residences that abut but he is firmly of the opinion that nothing less than a sixteen Inch pipe should be employed. Deaths outnumber births. The Book of the local registrar show that Twenty one births took place in this registration District of Montour county during the Mouth of March. The number of deaths during Marci As Given when the regular monthly re Piort was printed in the 3rd inst., it will be recalled was Twenty five which reveals that during March our population suffered a slight de clue. During the Mouth of february however the number of births were in the Ascendancy being Twenty three As against Twenty deaths reported. During january there were Twenty births while Only fourteen death certificates were issued a very Gratifying showing indeed. How flu record stood previously before the act. To provide for the immediate registration of births und deaths went into effect Carnot he so easily determined. March a report shows that the tables occasionally turn and that births do not uniformly exceed the deaths. The next report in this resin ref will 1m watched with a Good Deal of interest. Oddest lest of school Law. The compulsory education Law was invoked against Anthony Snyder a Rolish resident of Kingston tuesday. Snyder insisted upon Seiling his four children to a polish school where it is alleged English is not taught. Truant officer myer gave repeated warnings to him and then placed Snyder under arrest. He was arraigned by fore magistrate Slifer and fined $5 and costs. As to Disi terring bodies it May Imp of importance Tox sons contemplating the Dis interment of bodies that under a state Law april 14th will be Ihu a last Day on which such Dis interment May 1m made. Be tween april 15th and october 15th bodies May not be disturbed this being a Sau Itaev measure. Mrs. Elizabeth m. Brinton a trained nurse of wide reputation who Laboured in the government service Aud has filled Many important positions in private families of wealth and Infix ence who is now spending a few Days in this City among the friends of earlier Days is preparing to carry her chosen life labor into altogether a new sphere of activity that of the missionary Field. On May 2nd mrs. Brinton will a ail from san Francisco for the philippine islands where she will take charge of the new presbyterian Mission Hospital at Iloilo of the Island of Panay. The Mission Hospital which was founded through the efforts of Rev. Or. Hall a noted missionary on the islands will fill a Long Felt want at Iloilo As aside from the natives to whom the Hospital will prove a great Blessing there Are on the Island a Large number of foreign residents including those connected with the consular service trades people and others who have emigrated from the states All of whom previously if they needed Hospital treatment were obliged to journey 350 Miles northward to Manila. It was largely through the help received from the foreign residents that or. Hall was Able to establish the institution. The Mission Hospital therefore while primarily built for the natives will contain rooms for the foreign residents who will pay for their treatment. Mrs. Brinton was a nurse in the Philippines for three years under the United states government during the uprising of the natives. In that time she not Only became accustomed to the climate Aud the conditions of life and society there hut she also demonstrated her rare ability and tact As a nurse. It was at the request of or. Hall the missionary a a the islands that the woman a presbyterian Board of the Northwest appointed mrs. Brinton As the chief nurse of the Mission Hospital a position which gives her sole charge. Nurses fur the institution will have to be supplied by the islands and to mrs. Brinton will belong the Honor of starting the first training school of native girls. Mrs. Brinton enters upon this department of missionary work for life unless it should occur that health does not hold out. She stated yesterday that she will leave Danville of next tuesday stopping at Niagara Falls after which she will proceed to Chicago where on the 19th Aud 20th she will meet the presbyterian woman a Board of the Northwest. Her next stopping place will be at Denver where she will remain until the 24th, when she will proceed to san Francisco where three weeks from yesterday she will sail on the steamship China. At the expiration of six years mrs. Brinton will be entitled to a vacation of one year which she will no doubt spend in the United states. Artistic piece of work. David c. Hunt tie Well known car. Ridge and Wagon maker of this City has just completed a most artistic piece of work which will be sure to attract attention abroad Aud May be the forerunner of a great Deal of work of precisely the same kind that will be turned out of Bis factory. The work alluded to is the painting of three wagons for the moxie nerve food company of new England two of the vehicles being in the form familiar to most persons a big bottle of wheels Aud the other a top Wagon with the roof supported by four big bottles one at each Corner. Or. Hunt is one of the finest Carriage painters in this Section and the unique and ornamental form of the moxie wagons lend themselves very nicely to his extraordinary ability Aud the result is something Little Short of dazzling. Only one Wagon is wholly completed. The main body that is the big bottle is painted a French Carmine the lettering being of Gold shaded tastefully in a variety of colors. The running gear is painted White striped and ornamented in Blue and red. In addition there is an abundance of scroll work. These wagons will be completed and put out of the Road in time for the Summers Trade. Or.
