The report of the local registrar to the state Hoard of health for july constitutes a remarkably Good show Itig. Then has not been a single Case of typhoid fever. There was one Case of diphtheria and one of measles. During the month Twenty three deaths were reported. It it of this number eleven deaths occurred at the Hospital for the insane which properly should not he taken account of in connection with this District. Of the twelve deaths occurring outside the Hospital two were caused by consumption one by Shock one by appendicitis one by drowning. The remaining deaths mainly were due to complications incidental to old age. No deaths were caused by the so called strictly contagious diseases. The present it is True is a season of the year when the most healthful conditions prevail and doctors can Well afford to take a vacation. At the same time it would probably be difficult to recall a summer when a few cases of dreaded typhoid were not lurking about and the clean Hill of health in respect to this disease Given by the local registrar is therefore All the More Gratifying.

Forest fire damages the commissioners of Columbia county have decided to pay out $000 for Forest fire damages and Are ready to meet such Hills. The fire wardens of two of the townships have been paid and the Hills now on tile in the to hie beginning of last week Lias made discoveries relative to the prevalence of the sail Jose scale which Are Little Short of startling. Or. Stephens arrival and the object of Liis visit was set Forth in these columns in the Issue of july 24tli. The article lie says has proved quite a help to him turning the attention of the owners of Orchards to the san a lose scale and serving As an introduction to the inspector. Wherever he Lias appeared As a Rule to has found the fruit growers impressed with the importance of fighting the scale and ready to co operate with the state in the crusade be aug made. First of All our readers will be interested to know that the inspector has found the san Jose scale in the Borough of Danville infesting not Only fruit Trees but in a few instances Shade Trees As Well. The inspection in the Borough was not As sweeping and thorough As in the townships of the county where the inspector passes directly from farm to farm. There were Many places in Danville that he did not visit. At the same time there is no intention to Overlook the scale though found in town and if owners of Trees discover the pest and will drop or. Stephens a card the inspector will he glad to Call upon them and reuder All assistance possible. Besides work done in the Borough of Danville the Orchard inspector since arriving Here has confined Liis labors to Mahoning and Cooper townships principally in the Vicinity of Bloom Road. Just East of Danville he has found the scale to be alarmingly prevalent. At the White Church and Westward toward the Borough it is is estimated that the scale has been at work for five years. A very Largo percentage of the older Trees Are dead or dying and the pest even infests the Rose Bushes. Or. Diehl and his neighbors will enter upon a general crusade next fall. So firm has the scale gained that unless some Well sustained Effort is made to exterminate it in live years or. Stephens says one half of the Orchards of that Section will be dead. It is a singular fact that the prevalence of the scale is pretty general along the Bloom Road while farther Hack along the Hills it is rare or is not found at All. This is accounted for by the Fai t that the san lose scale was introduced with Young Trees shipped from nurseries that were infested. Obviously the More Remote farms were not visited by the fruit tree agents. In fighting the scale it is not necessary for fruit growers to invest in any of the More expensive and widely advertised compounds. They have a ready and inexpensive remedy at hand in the familiar Lime and Sulphur Wash which can be made at a Cost of two cuts per gallon. Nothing better has been discovered and As a proof of its Effi Claucy or. Stephens relates that in e. G. Wertman a Orchard where a demonstration was made by or. Brinkerhoff last fall the pest is practically exterminated. Nowhere on any of or. Wertman a Trees where the Lime and Sulphur Wash was applied can or. Stephens find any of the scale remaining while on a single tree near the House accidentally overlooked by the demonstrator the scale still exists. The inspector in turn will visit each of the townships of the county. For each premises inspected he fills out a Rex it to h. A. Surface a state zoologist giving the name Aud address of the owner or tenant the number Aud kind of Trees whether Young or bearing whether or not insects have been found when How often Aud with what material the Orchard has been treated for san Jose scale. Townships should help. Commenting upon the recent announcement of the state Highway com missioner that so Many Miles of Road Are now7 under contract or completed in various parts of the state that the entire amount appropriated to the counties affected until june 1 Dot has been consumed the Washington observer remarks that a it is evident that the sentiment for Perm aunt Road improvement has increased wonderfully luring tin a last few years. And it will continue to grow. The sentiment will undoubtedly result in a far More Liberal state appropriation. And the progressive counties and townships of the Commonwealth Are going ahead for themselves where they Are Able and supplementing the work of the state. This is the Only Way whereby the people will be Able to get Many Miles of grim 1 roads in this graveyard a nest of snakes.
