The question of relocating the Curbstone Market will come up before the Borough Council at its meeting tomorrow night. Owing to the paving of Mill Street a Point Lias now been reached where the Market at least temporarily will have to be removed from that thoroughfare. The question to Settle will be whether the removal should be permanent or not also what Street is Best adapted for the Market. Not a few of the merchants who would like to see the Market kept on Mill Street take the View that even with the trolley line in operation there will be ample room for the wagons and advocate bring aug the Market Back As soon As the Street is paved. It is evident however that there will be opposition to this course. Whether the removal is to be permanent or not a Nice Point to Settle will be which Street is Best suited for the Market. Many persons taking into consideration the location of the town one populous Section lying As it does on the North Side Aud the other of the South Side think that ferry or some other Street extend aug North Aud South should be selected As one that would be convenient for the greatest number of people. They hold that lower Mulberry Street would be too for residents of the first and second wards Aud that Mahoning Street is too Remote from portions of Tho third Ward Aud Yorks Hilf. The matter is now no to Louscil for immediate action As the Market is already partially crowded off the Street and but two or three Market Days remain before the portion occupied will be closed by the tractor. Mit settled Dow c0�o Brief shut Down for Bip amp irs. The clock factory will close tomorrow to remain Idle until next wednesday. The shutdown is rendered necessary owing to some repairs needed of the machinery the Gas Eugue especially requiring a general overhauling. Several parts will have to be sent away for repairs. The Slot Down contemplated will be the first time lost by the clock factory since it was started nearly a year ago and yet the establish mint is a month behind in it orders. The self winding clocks Are constantly increasing in popularity enough to have demonstrated its reliability and accuracy As a time keeper. Its factory Here Lias a Busy career before it. Teams fording the Eiver. The River has fallen rapidly during the it few Days and tin water is now at nearly us lowest porn Tho ferry owing to the weak current moves very slowly and consumes upwards of Twenty initiates in crossing. Owing to the poor service several of the teams including the Mccormick bus have resum a fording the River. The Stream is Low eur ugly tomake this practicable Aud considerable time is saved in this w to. Owing to the i id he Toni fording has not Hei n popular this summer even at Low water Aud yesterday was about the first that any of tin teams Cross in this Way for several week. The Roks Are beginning to show on the surface of the wat. R and in a Day or so the naphtha Laun Eikos dance at Hunter s Park. Danville Lodge no. 754, b. P. O. E., of this City is making arrangements to hold a dance at Hunters Park on thursday the 251li inst. Which in Point of brilliancy promises to eclipse anything that was Ever attempted at that resort.

The Lodge is already Prpa log for the fall an i Winter season and it might be added that the various functions under contemplation will Lack nothing in the scope or brilliancy which has made those note Worth Hgt i i by the Lodge during the 1 present a Ami past seasons. Study music at a Good school. It has become a Well known fact that out of one Hundred people who Ped their Modey to secure a education in music not More than one or two become musicians. The reason often lies in the fact that poor instruction is received. We notice in Reading the catalogue of the literary Institute and state Normal at Bloomsburg that the courses offered in music Are like those at the Best conservatories equally thorough and comprehensive and Cost much less. Instruction in other Bia Anches May be taken while studying music. Send for catalogue and refer to pages 11, 29, 30 and 31. Address j. P. Welsh. Principal. Mrs. Allgaier claimed by death.
