Among those present was Edward s. The Sonestown delegation Tho i 0 nth 1 o to snap a picture of the Bridge from Smyrna to let we our to hie american my last Jer was mailed to vol at Smyrna Are now on on Way to Beront. Visit to Smyrna Ami Ephesus though very Brief was nevertheless of the greatest interest to All on vessel owing to its size could not get into the Dock and was therefore compelled to cast Anchor far ont in the Harbor from whence we proceeded to Shore in Large boats. Horse cars were in waiting on Shore to take of to the station of the ottoman Railroad from whence we proceeded fifty five Miles by Railroad to Ephesus. This Road is provided with Good cars and solid roadbed. Electricity is used for lighting the cars. The country through which we passed in going from Smyrna to Ephesus was of the most picturesque character. On Road ran through a Fertile Valley containing laugh Seville Lodge with a hand and the Donkey which has Mado the organization Tanious. The regular morning train from i he South brought the sunburn delegation composed of two lodges Aud the inmates of the orphans Home supported by the order of sub try. With the Montoursville baud they marched to the Headquarters of the daughters of Rebekah. There were sixty two in line including a baby cripple which was carried in the arms of one of the teachers. The children ranged in size from boys of fifteen Aud sixteen to lads barely Able of tramp along with the others.

When the next place of meeting was Well kept gardens Aud farms where oranges Tigs olives grapes Aud Garden r.ei1 up Guu Hury extended a invitation. Danville was placed in Nomi truck were growing in abundance grapes olives Aud figs were not yet in Bloom but everything was Green and promising. On both sides of the Beautiful Valley through which we passed were High mountains forming a Chain aug background to the general View. Caravans of camels and donkeys were to he seen on the Road Aud presented a novel sight As they wended their Way from place to place. Oxen Are used for blowing and in Many places ancient plows Are used though Here Aud there we noticed farming implements of modern make. Everywhere throughout this country shepherds and their sheep were seen which sight reminded is of the Bible Story of the great Shepherd. A Peculiar outer garment is worn by the shepherds which is made of very thick White Felt and is quite Large somewhat stiffened at the shoulders and serves As a Protection from wet and cold weather. We did not notice Many song Birds but storks of great size abound and live near the people and in Many instances make their tests on High places right in the towns. They Are particularly numerous about old ruins Aud disused buildings. For the first time since we left new York we encountered a disagreeable Day. The rain and wind were particularly unpleasant features of part of a f Lulu in t the weather was warm and pleasant and gave As Opportunity to visit the stores and bazaars in Smyrna. Smyrna has a Beautiful Street along the water front where ships make fast directly opposite the largest business houses. Further up the Street Are the finest residences of the City. Like other Eastern cities there was a mixed crowd on the Dock to meet us Aud there were also Tho various cab Drivers and Sellers of curios and paddlers seeking to sell their wares. The people seemed glad to see us and As we rude past their houses men Aud women leaned out of their windows to wave their hands at us. Smyrna is the principal commercial City of the Levant Aud was founded in 688 b c. It is one of the cities addressed by John in Kev. 2 8 12. Smyrna produces the finest figs dates Aud raisins to be found anywhere. For a English shilling 24 cents a Box containing about 8 pounds of the Best figs can be secured. These and other splendid fruit it re offered for Sale at every turn at reasonable prices. There Are mosques and churches Aud schools Here also a american College. The streets Are narrow Aud with the crowds of people of All nationalities and tie horses and sheep and poultry it is with difficulty that pedestrians make their Way from place to place. The City contains 335,000 people is 28-8 Miles from constantinople Aud 686 Miles from Jaffa. The most interesting Monument in Smyrna is the Toinby of Polycarp Oue of tie most celebrated characters in ancient Christendom who was Bishop of Smyrna and had been a disciple of the apostle John he suffered martyrdom in 166. At Ephesus a some on donkeys and horses others on toot a accompanied by natives we went by the Road trod by men of old to visit the Temple of Diana the theatre into which the people rushed Aud raved against Paul shouting a great is Diana of the this theatre seated 25,000 persons we also visited the forum Aud a Church of Sec John a which still stands in a partly ruined condition. The a roman Gate of persecution a where christians Are supposed to have suffered martyrdom is also standing and we passed under its Arch. Leaving Smyrna for Beyrouth on our Way we passed the Island of patinos where John wrote the apocalypse. We also passed the islands of Rhodes Aud Cyprus. These places Are of Gre sit interest Aud from a distance present a most Beautiful appearance. 1 will write again concerning Bey rout and my trip Overland on horse Bank.

As it Hung suspended under the Large Derrick cranes. It was a Early 8 80 of clock before the steam derricks got in position one opposite each end of the Bridge. It was truly a interesting sight. With no a Jiaren Effort the Bridge All ready to receive the rails Aud weighing some forty five tons was picked up bodily and swung Over on the track Between the two cranes each of we Ipoh was attached to a locomotive. Tho engines started and with scarcely a Jar Tho new Bridge was carried into position immediately Over the Creek which left the cranes standing Oue on Eracli Shore. The old Bridge was Cut Loose on Friday and All Quot that remained sunday was to disconnect the rails and pull out a few of Tho lies. This accomplished at a signal the men flew to four Large crabs that a re firmly anchored w Ith ropes and pull is All connected it require Only a few revolutions before the old Bridge was seen to move out of its place and slide southward Down Over the Iron track prepared for it. The calculations were All nicely Mado the old Bridge left the space Clear and the new Bridge was dropped upon the abutments the whole operation from the time tie cranes got to work being a trifle Over half a hour. Some Twenty men were employed Aud it was very int resting to watch their movements. Every Man knew precisely what to do and when to do it Aud no matter How Many men were swarming around the same spot they had the faculty of working without getting in each other s Way. There were no orders give in a loud voice if any were Given at All and beyond answer it honestly. Are the statements of Danville citizens not More reliable than those of utter strangers ? this is a vital question. It is fraught wit ii interest to Dan Ville. It permits of Only Oue answer. I cannot be evaded or ignored. A Danville citizen Speaks Here. Speaks tor the welfare of Danville. A citizens statement is reliable. An utter strangers doubtful. Home proof is the Best proof. Josiah Williams of 80 Ash Street Barber says a i lid not have to use a whole Box of Doans kidney pills before they cured my Back of depressing aching Aud removed the lameness which had made every moment pain fill. The lameness entered right Over my kidneys and stooping or lifting sent a Sharp two Inge through me. When on my feet a Dull gnawing pain took All the vim out of me. I gave some to or. C. H. Stoes of 217 e. Mahon ing St., and As i had to further use for them Aud he was As pleased As i wit ii the positive results obtained. A for Sale by All dealers. Price 50 cents per Box. Foster Mil Burn co. Buffalo n. A. Sole agents United states. Remember the Ake no other. For the Doans so and Why so bashful ? an Exchange prints the following Why should a Young Man and a Young woman fear publicity of the fact that they Are about to be married Why Are Many Young couples so anxious to keep the procuring of a marriage License secret some Young people and some not so Young appear to labor under the impression that nobody has any right to know that they Are about to enter the matrimonial state. Aud yet for Mouths and sometimes years these people have been spooning and cooing like Turtle doves in Public until everybody knew that their ultimate Fate would be to be yoked together with the matrimonial noose. This attempt to keep the Public in Tho dark Wheir a couple seek a marriage License is false modesty or squeamishness. There is nothing to be ashamed of la connection with a wedding where the ceremony is to be performed in a Legal manner the Bride to be who with her future lord sneaks into the court House under cover of darkness to get a marriage License will after the ceremony has been performed be angry because the whole world does not know that she is a wife. Her Harlif ulusess will 1 0 supplanted with Chagrin if the news aiders do not devote half a column of space in describing her debut As a married woman Why then should she play the part of a bashful schoolgirl when applying for a marriage License out again.

Sold by Paules amp co. And gosh amp co. The attorney general s ruling. Attorney general Carson in an opinion to superintendent of Public buildings Aud grounds Shumaker makes a important ruling concerning the rebuilding of Bridges by the state which or it i or str Yui Mifot Vang interest tit the residents of Montour and Nort Lium Berland counties As Well As to several other coup tie of the Commonwealth or. Oar on Points out that the state is not obliged to rebuild a Bridge unless it be destroyed and that Locatis total destruction. Under this ruling the state will not to obliged to re build the Bridge at Catawissa two spans of which were swept away by the ice this Spring. This is final and governor Pennypacker of saturday notified the commissioners of Columbia county that the state will not rebuild the Catawissa Bridge. The attorney general Saya that this q nest Kin was raised once before Aud it was decided that As the Bridge destroyed was the property of the county through the donation of the state All the material re amp Hulting from Tho wreck belonged also to the county. It was also decided that although the state built these Bridges they became immediately the property of the county Aud must be kept in repair by the county. Or. Carson concurs in this interpretation of the Law. Of still greater interest to the citizens of Montour and Northumberland counties is the result of a interview with the attorney general by Captain j. Boyd Robison solicitor for the commissioners of Columbia county which took place in car Alburg on Friday. Captain Robison stat s that attorney general Carson informed him that lie intended filing exceptions to the report of the viewers favouring new Bridges at Danville and Catu wish on the grounds that it has never yet been determined by the courts what constitutes the destruction of a Bridge to that it will be brought within Tho pro visions of the act of the legislature which makes the state responsible for its construction. He takes the position that with piers yet standing the state is not liable for Ali or construction. It probably Means that the construction of these hid sch by the state or county will b determined by the courts fought. The school dwelling especially upon a Jones of Philadelphia brother of state the facilities there afforded for a musical and Art and elocution training besides the usual classical and scientific training of such schools. After representing Tho Seminary he preached from ephesians 5-8, to 4 for be were sometimes in darkness hut now Are be Light in the lord walk As children of the Light for the fruit of the spirit is in All goodness and righteousness and truth. Proving what is acceptable unto the lord. A Paul a letter to the ephesians was intended to incite the christians there to steadfastness. The inhabitants of Ephesus were half greek and half Asiatic and their religion was a superstitious compound of Tho East and West. Diana was the chief object of worship. The Temple of Diana was renowned As Oue of the seven wonders of the world. Bat St. Paul tells Tho people that god can make Temple of their souls far More wonderful and Beautiful. The language of the text first looks inward upon the human heart blending the physical and the spiritual life Eye were in Ephesus was notorious for its luxury Aud licentiousness the oat Ward corruption was the result of the spiritual darkness. Sin is darkness the sinner and darkness Are one As Light and the Christian Are Oue. The transformation of a sinner into a Christian is a change from darkness to Light. Saul of Tarsus in his conversion is a marked illustration of this. The Light that came into the life of Saul is a Symbol of god himself for god is Light and god is love. The language of the text secondly looks outward upon the life a walk As children of the Tho Christian life is All activity producing first the fruit of goodness or Beneficent love. A chaplain of a Battlefield offered to read the Bible to a dying Soldier. The Soldier said that he would rather have a drink of water. The chaplain got it. Beu he wanted a Pillow the chaplain got that. Theu lie wanted a cover for he was cold the chaplain took off his coat and covered him. I then said the Soldier a if that Book t tells How one Man can be Good to an other As you have been to me read it i to when men live lives of prac a tidal goodness sinners will be willing to hear the gospel. The second fruit of the Christian life is righteousness rightness toward god and rightness toward men. Rightness toward god May mean the payment of outlawed debts thus producing rightness toward men. The third fruit of a Christian life is truth. Again Tho language of the text looks upward to god a a acceptable to the it is possible to please the heavenly father just As it is possible to displease him. There is a famous picture in new York City entitled a a Mother s it is the casting Oft from Home of a fallen daughter. A picture turned to the Wall. A name never mentioned. What must it be for a fallen child of Tod to he to he pro in to outer darkness. Live Ghrist Liko lives and you will not be rejected. Walk As children of the Light. Jesus said a i am the Light of the let that Light Shine in All your life. George Lansing Taylor heard the cry when he was out on Tho Ocean a a Man overboard a his first impulse was to run to the deck and try to help but chairman Jones who on motion of f. P. Johnson was chosen As temporary chairman. Rev. E. B. Dunn led in prayer after which j. Kelso and r. W. Eggert were chosen As secretaries. In the absence of state chairman Jones Rev. E. B.

Ment committee the soldiers Monument committee concerning which Little has been heard since last summer has again buckled itself Down to work and we Are promised results commensurate with the importance of the undertaking in a very Short time. In the project to elect a soldiers Monument in Montour county very Little Progress has been made during several years past. Conditions Are considered much More favourable now and the committee believes that if Given a Little More time it will be Able to redeem itself. A considerable sum of Money several thousand dollars has from time to time been subscribed for the Monument. Montour county is one of the few counties of the state which has no soldiers Monument. In Many of the counties the work of erecting a suitable memorial was undertake a at an earlier Day following the War when the deeds Aud heroism of the fallen heroes Weie still fresh upon the mind of the living and the patriotism and the gratitude of the masses were More effectively appealed to. Another Dia advantage in the present Case lies in the fact that Montour county is Small Aud that of the Money subscribed nearly the entire amount will have to come from Danville. Hon. James Foster chairman of the committee is confident however that the Mousy needed can be raised and he stated yesterday that a very Short time will be required if the present plans Are carried out to reveal material results. Where the matter will be a thoughtful Man. Austin of Winchester ind., knew what to do in the hour of need. His wife had such an unusual Case of stomach and Livor trouble physicians could not help her. He of and tried or. Kings new life pills and she got Relief at once and was finally cored. Only 25c, at panics amp goes drug store. Former residents advancement. O. S. Beaver a former resident of Danville and a son of the late Jesse Beaver Lias been promoted to the position of assistant superintendent Ltd of railway mails with Headquarters in Jacksonville Florida. Or. Beaver was formerly Ltd re of the railway mail service Aud the promotion is regarded As a deserved compliment to him As a recognition of his Worth and efficiency. Lie knew that he would he in the Road there his next impulse was to Pray but just then lie thought of his Light and holding it to a window was just in time to thick a beam of Light where tie drowning Man could Sec the rope thrown out to save him. The Light saved him. You May think that you Are doing very Little to save a rained world but Light always dispels darkness and brings Hope and Points to that path which grows brighter and brighter unto the perfect Day.

Liquor questions an audience of several Hundred pot ple assembled in the court House of saturday evening to hear Rev. J h. Hector a the Black Knight a in his attack of the License Law. Rev. Hector is a witty and original speaker Aud it is a question whether there was Ever a prohibition address delivered in this City that commanded closer interest or was in a general Way More effective. The speaker had a this command All the old arguments against the License Law As Well As a few new ones. He is a Complete master of ridicule and in pointing out the alleged inconsistencies relating to the Law and Tho customs of society he handled a certain class of Church numbers and even the clergy without gloves. Of the various Temperance crusades started on foot by the churches lie said there was Only one which gave Tho Devil much concern Aud that was the w. C. T. U., which lie said menus to the liquor dealer a women continually tormenting he later qualified his opinion somewhat stating that satan by working upon politic preachers and weak kneed and selfish Church members has Learned How to defeat or neutralize the Best efforts of the w. C. T. U., As Well As any other tempera co organization. Or. Hector is a full blooded negro Aud wholly self educated. Speaking of the race problem he said the negro in the South is not asking for social Equality. Social Equality exists there however contrary to what is supposed Aud it is worthy of note that it is a condition that was inaugurated by the White Man Aud not by the Black Man. Such social Equality exists in Tho drinking places where the negro is taught that he is just As Good and just As Welcome As the White Mau. Bombing upon the numerous lace wars have occurred Between the Whites a id Blacks lie said it could be shown that racial antipathies had less to do with them Thau the influence of Ilie liquor evil. He ran Over the li-1 of disturbances which have agitated our country of late years and in every instance traced the outbreak to a Drunken White Man and a drank eur negro. He cited facts connected with the civil War which stand As a tribute to the negro race for its Devotion to the White race its self sacrifice Aud its Law abiding qualities.
