During his so Jur readers will be glad to learn that the Borough Council has a project on foot for the abatement of the nuisance existing at blizzards run which promises to yield tangible results. This is nothing less than the laying of pipe in the Channel of the Creek from the p. L. Brewery to the Mouth of Mahoning Creek. Or. Reifsnyder of the Street and Bridge committee at a regular meeting Friday eve stated that after obtaining the Best Legal advice to be had they had come to the conclusion that the Law affords no remedy for the evil of pollution at Sechler a run commonly known As blizzards run and that the Only Way to Abate the nuisance ii sting there is by adopting sewerage. Beyond this he said the committee was unable to report. Several plans were on foot which might have to to considered at a special meeting to be called at an Early Dav. The Cost or. Reifsnyder said lie did not think would exceed f 10,000, a sum which would in Large measure be counterbalanced by the Revenue from property owners who might wish to connect with the sewer. No opposition manifested itself to or. Reifsnyder a plans even trom those who in the past deemed it to the Best interest of the Borough to oppose sewerage. It was discussed As the Only measure which would relieve the Borough from the constantly accumulating Law suits for the a continuation of it is thought that a fifteen Inch pipe will be sufficient while the plans include the severing of the Stream the entire distance from the p. L. Brewery to the greeks Mouth. An ordinance to regulate the licensing of shooting galleries or other temporary establishments in the Borough passed on its first read aug. Several communications were read relating to the advertisement for bids for Borough Survey and map. Only to of these were definite enough to be regarded in the Light of bids. One was from George w.

Ostrander who explained that some years ago he made a Survey of the Borough for a sewer system at his own expense. He has made a map of the Borough showing Elevation amp a. From this map which he uttered to the Borough for $85, he said any contracting Engineer would estimate the Cost of sewerage. On motion the bids were Laid upon the table for the present. Messes. Wesley Hollobaugh d. G. Williams and Seth Lornor of the Washington Hose company appeared before Council to renew the request of that company that the Borough build them a barn to the end that they May be Able to use their two horses in times of fire. They made quite an Earnest Appeal and seemed very favourably received by Council. The matter was referred to the building committee it to report at next Weil and Heister Foust appeared before Council to protest against the cutting Down of a Large Willow tree which stood on the River Hank near Cross keys place. The tree was an ornament and its removal it was alleged will necessitate the building of a guard of the River Bank. The Street commissioner was called before Council and asked to explain on what authority he had Cut Down the tree. He said that some residents in the neighbourhood wished the tree removed As it obstructed their View of the opposite Side of the River. He called the attention of the chief Burgess to the matter to said by whom he was Given permission to cot Down the tree. Or. Weil insisted that another to e be planted on the spot. Council i cussed the matter at some length do j poring the fact that the tree had bet n Cut Down. On motion of or. Davis it was ordered that the Street commissioner comply with or. Weill a request and Plant another tree on the spot. In the enjoyment of Good health and in the midst of a Circle of relatives representing four generations mrs. I.

As structures which would form a valuable nucleus for an Industry such As the one in question. The american steel hoop company a works at Duncansville now being dismantled a a one of Twenty subsidiary plants belonging to the steel corporation.

Ethereal mildness May prevail in Florida or Southern California but overcoats and wraps were not uncomfortable for people outdoors yesterday Aud the artificial warmth indoors was needed almost As badly As two months ago. We had frosts and freezing weather during the past week Aud the Outlook is not favourable for warm weather yet. It was snowing in Michigan Aud along the lakes yester Day and the Clouds had a suspicious look of squalls As they Hung Over the mountains in this Section yesterday morning. East of the Mississippi the temperatures Are unseasonably Low while it is slightly warmer West of the father of Waters. We had a taste of Early Spring in March. Too Early for we have paid dearly for the Short but glorious period since by harsher conditions. In this latitude we do not jump into summer from the blizzards Aud the ice of late Winter without payment in compensation. There w Ere cold Days cold weeks to he expected. The Promise of an Early Spring often fails at the moment when we Are lulled into Confidence of a final escape from Winter. But we can await with Confidence the outcome knowing that from this time continues the grand March of living nature from tender up sponging to full leakage to fruit age to Harvest Aud then again to slumber. We have passed the Point of Awakening All the aspirations the delights the glories of the year of nature lie before us for appreciation Aud enjoyment if we Are Wise to Rake them As they come As they must come without trying to Hurt their sequence. It is not the first Bluebird that makes the Spring nor the first Robin nor the first Lone Hep Tica Blooming in some secluded Sun kissed spot. We have these in abundance they Are ouly the strenuous forerunners of the real Spring. We have Goue Forward so far in the procession of reawakened nature As to reach the first peach Plum Ami Cherry blossoms though the two former came to their destruction. From now Ouwo can enjoy the process of development of Floral a Ami Ceres bounties. There is nothing More inspiring than the elementary stir of tin Earth Awakening from hibernation. It moves the blood. We draw a longer breath of the air which carries the Spring smell. The whistle of the Early coming Birds finds an Echo in Oor hearts. The fragrance of the rare Spring Flowers brings a thrill which the scent of the hot House blossoms of the past Winter cannot evoke. We step from artificiality into nature and before us we see the glorious realization of the elementary instincts of humanity. To be sure it comes every year hut it is none the less satisfactory because of the repetition. The sequence of the seasons will not lose its fascination until human nature is metamorphosed so Long As human life is what it is so Long will nature in its infinite manifestations and its eternal changes Supply the inspiration Ami the compensation of Effort and endurance. While we May Long for More genial Ity the warmth of the Sun the Blue sky the Balmy will come Ere Long. Nature is balancing things. We Are thankful for the Green gras the Early Flowers the Birds and the Promise of even better things though the air at this time is chill Aud there Are suggestions of show.
