Shay received by h. Schoch a member of the Board of trustees of the Hospital. Instead of $389,300, the sum originally asked for the princely sum of $429,000 is appropriated by the Senate.

To what the $40,000 is to he wholly applied to one last night seemed to be in a position to state with authority but that a portion of it will be used in providing additional Means for the disposal of sewage As stated in the Bill there seems to be to doubt.

Is fruit injured much fear prevails among the fruit growers in this Section Ami throughout the state that the present spell of cold weather has done much damage to the fruit Trees. Those who own Orchards Are looking Forward Toa very Small crop this season. In some parts of the Section surrounding Dauville during the warm weather at the beginning of Apple peach Pear and Plum Trees hat started budding. At that time the experienced fruit growers thought Tonj a change would come Ami the la \ ripped by the Frost. The Eli auge of weather came As they expected and Many of tie Trees suffered from Frost.

Efforts Are being made to improve the sit Nitsou some mysterious influence i holding a no a i he Only rational measure before the proper committee. Men and women interested in the welfare of children must move on re Weir representatives at one if any Good is to come out of tit session. While Hunting wild ducks along the swat Ara Creek on monday Harry Horn of Lebanon blew his left Arm off by the explosion of his gun. Horns condition is serious on account of the great loss of blood. Will double track Road. The d. L. Amp w. Railroad is planning extensive improvements at Northumberland. The company recently purchased from the Penu Sylvia Railroad the bed of the old Pennsylvania canal which runs from Northumberland up the North Branch of the Susquehanna River for Many Miles. During the past few Days agents have been scouring Northumberland Sunbury and other surrounding towns for labourers who will soon be put to work filling the canal As far up As the locks a distance of about a mile. On the property thus recovered it is reported that they will build additional tracks which will greatly eur Large their terminal facilities at Northumberland. Should the traffic warrant it they will run a double track the full length of the Toad As the canal parallels the railway for its entire length. This action Means that the canal will be permanently abandoned and that the recent agitation for the revival of canal transportation in this Section will be fruit less. From a sanitary Point of View the town of Northumberland will be in a great degree benefited because the canal at present is Only an unsightly ditch a dumping ground for refuse Aud a Breeding ground for disease daily. Few moves Timve been contemplated by the Borough that have aroused More interest than the proposition to give out the cleaning of Mill Street by contract and to have the work done at night. It is arranged to award the Coul act at the regular meeting of Council Friday night which invests that session with More Tuliau Ordinary interest. Meanwhile prospective bidders Are Busy and the City clerk at certain hours is kept occupied handing out the Plaus Aud specifications and answering innumerable questions relating to them. From appearances there will be no Scarcity of bidders. The Only Point in doubt is the method of cleaning that May be adopted by Council. Considering that before the summer is Over North Mill Street will be paved Ami that this will nearly double the length of paving to be cleaned not a few of the Council lieu incline to the View that a rotary sweeper would prove the most economical in the end. The sweeper would of course necessitate tie employment of a ii orse but a horse is already used in hauling away the sweepings Aud will be needed no matter which of the methods Are employed. With a rotary sweeper but one or two men would be needed so that although the first Cost might be a couple of Hundred dollars the amount would soon be balanced by what would be saved in the reduced number of men. There is some objection against Flushing As a regular Means of Cleau ing the Street owing to the acc Mula Tiou of trash in the sewer which would be Likely to result. It is hardly probable that Flushing will be adopted after the matter is fully discussed. It will not be until the bids Are opened that Council will have a Opportunity of determining which is the cheapest Aud most practicable of the various methods of Street cleaning proposed. A pleasant Surprise party. A pleasant Surprise party was Teu dered miss Mary Maher of Plymouth who is taking a musical course at St. Josephus parochial school Aud who is stopping with her Uncle James Dougherty Northumberland St. Refreshments were served and the guests enjoyed themselves with music Aud games.

Lamberton of this City is at Wash Uptou d. C., this week attending the National conference of Church clubs of the episcopal Church in America the committee which will represent the Church club of the diocese of Harrisburg is composed of messes. Lamberton George a Reynolds of Lancaster Frank c. Augle Dauville and Levi g. Hatton Sha Okiu. A Rev. Or. Mccormack pastor of the Grove presbyterian Church yesterday morning returned Home from Newberry where he attended a meeting of the Northumberland presbytery held of monday Aud tuesday. The presbytery adjourned to meet at the Mahoning presbyterian Church april 29tli., for the purpose of dissolving the pastoral relation existing Between the Elysburg and Rush presbyterian churches and the Rev. Or. Graham who has been in charge for upwards of a year. The session of the presbytery at Newberry was marked by an innovation the like of which Bias never occurred in the history of the Northumberland Aud probably of no other presbytery before. From the very earliest Days it has been the unalterable Rule that a Clergyman should act As Moderator of the presbytery. At the meeting at Newberry monday something induced the presbytery to make a departure and it elected Toliu g. Redding esq., an attorney Aud a Mau prominent in the affairs of the town As Moderator to serve during the ensuing year. Or. Mccormack says Itiat or. Redding made an Able presiding officer and that lie seemed thoroughly at Home in a Roje which up to the present has always been filled by dignitaries of the pulpit. Or. Redding is not Only a Brilliant lawyer but he is also a leading Church worker. It will be recalled that he addressed the y. A. In this City a year or so ago Aud Itiat lie made a Strong impress in a. That or. Redding should be the first Layman selected As Moderator is a tribute alike to his ability and character As a Christian gentleman. George m. Gearhart of the Grove Church and David Shellhart of the Mahoning Church were present at the presbytery As Lay delegates. While walking through a narrow Tuu Uel almost a mile under ground in the Depths of he Ayre Coal mine at it. Carmel yesterday morning guided Only by the dim Light from their flickering lamps several miners stumbled Over the dead body of Charles ski ski who has spent nearly All his life in the mines. Whether he met death by Accident or not May never be known although there Are suspicious of foul play. Bat death came when he was far beyond the sight or hearing of any of his fellow workmen and the Blank jagged Walls of his Rocky Tomb Tell no tales. Ski ski went to work Early yesterday morning and apparently was in the Best of health. When he descended into the Black Depths of the Ayre mine it was the last time lie was seen alive. His pick and other mining tools with which he worked were discovered close to the spot where his body Lay. A examination of the body by the Coroner has not yet been made. A Lump on the Back of his head either from a terrific blow by a Blunt weapon or from striking against the Cavern was found by the miners when they picked him up. Death was almost instantaneous and was probably due to concussion of the brain. The mystery of his death will probably never be solved. If lie was murdered his assailant doubtless succeeded in making his escape through the Maze of tunnels which honeycomb the Coal regions in the Vicinity of Sha Mokin and it. Carmel. And As there is no Chance of finding the guilty Man the authorities will probably not Burden themselves with fruitless investigations. A Kidskin a departure from his natural life will be catalogued with those unfathomable mysteries which Are so numerous in the regions where the Black hand flourishes. 100 information bureaus. Tie thousands of elks who attend the Twenty first annual reunion of the order in Philadelphia during the week of july 15th need have of straying from the fold or getting lost As 100 information bureaus will be scattered about the City.
