Dangerous Blaze at the big Mill the Quot masons House a at the Reading Iron works was destroyed by to re sunday evening for the second time with in a year. It was about 7 15 of clock when an alarm of Fin was sent in. Simultaneously with the ringing of the fire Bells a Blaze of lurid flame shot into the sky which left no doubt either As to the location or the magnitude of the fire. A cry went up that the big Mill was on fire. Instantly hundreds of pm Pele seemed to materialize on Mill Street and nearby thoroughfares All joining in a Rush to the scene a if the lire. Tim fire companies were Quick to respond and they did splendid execution. La less than Twenty minutes after the alarm was sounded the tin was under control. All four of the companies were of the ground. The building that burned was used by the masons and contained their tools besides a Quantity of lire Clay and mortar used in repairing the furnaces. It was heated with a Large stove or Furnace from which it is thought the lire originated. The Structure was of Frame built of the site of the House used for the same purpose which was destroyed by tin. Last Winter. Tim building was som it 20 by 30 feet situated at the South Western Corner of the big Mill. The lire proved a very stub Boni one As the windows were protected with Iron screens which made it difficult to get at the flames with the Hose. Fortunately there was no wind while As the result of the recent Snow the roofs were Damp and not easily ignited. The burned building stood less than ten feet from the puddle Mill and several times the tire communicated to it the roof of the main building. Each time however the flames were extinguished before they got manuli of a hold. Had the weather conditions been different no doubt the firemen would have found it a difficult task to save the Mill. The masons House was practically destroyed along with its contents. The pump House which stands just East and which also took tire the other time the masons House bund last evening due to the vigilance of the firemen wholly escaped the to looms. Throughout there was full co operation among the firemen and they worked to a Good purpose. Otherwise there might have been a different Story to i Tell. No estimate As to i tin loss was Given. Many Bucks slain Harrisburg pa., Dee. 1. Quot tin Deer season which closed yesterday after fifteen Days of shooting has been a peculiarly Good said Secretary Kalbfus of the game cd in missing today. Quot while the number of Bucks killed was probably not so Large As last year then were about 500 antlered Heads Laid la in. Very few a Loes were killed i am glad to say. Quot it is not generally known that the number of bears killed in the state of recent years has surpassed that of the Deer yet it is a fact. This year there were Between g00 and 700 bears shot Ami the season has not ended yet. Quot Tim pheasant season which also closes today was a very Good our hut from All accounts received so far the indications Point to the fact that the Large majority a if them were Rock Birds. Nine tenths of tin Birds i have seen dead were male. The Lien Birds seem very scarce and the chances Are that next your pheasants will in scarce. I a to not know How to account for this but reports from every cd Sun to show that males predominated in every sportsman s Danville Man shoots a Bear Frank k. Yeager while Hunting on the mountains near Bellefont last week achieved the enviable feat of shooting a big Black Bear. As a trophy of his prowess he brought the Pelt of Ruiu along Hack to town placing it on exhibition at the store of m. H. Sch ram where it waste iwo Al sat inlay by a Large number of people.

The club was Hunting on White Mountain and bail plenty of real sport. During last week Abram Zimmerman shot a Large five prong a Leer. Interest however seems to Center on the killing of the Bear which is an achievement before which the Mere exploit of shooting a Deer in the estimation of most Hunters Pules into insignificance. Or. Yeager ran across tin bar on the top of the Mountain. When first seen Bruin was leisurely making his Way through a thick growth of Bushes. Or. Yeager was 150 Yards away but he decided to open an attack. He fired three shots at that distance each one taking effect when the Bear came out into the open. In the minute or so following or. Yeager filed five More additional shots. Each shot took of feet. Bears Uro proverbially hard to kill however and this one prove a no exception. Two a if the shots knocked tin Bear Down but each time he arose. After to it a last shot with eight bullets in his body he came Down the Mountain. Whether in his wounded state the Bear took cognizance of the Man or not is Uncertain but he come directly toward or. Yeager and a lib a about thirty feet from him he Dropp d for the last Limo. The Bear weighed 250 pounds and it might not have been an easy matter to it have gotten thu carcass into Camp had us it the wounded animal aces Minadat singly came Down the Mountain to a lie. As a matter of fact the hear dropped quite near the Hank a if the Creek and All that the Hunters had to i a to was to la Ian a tin carcass onto a boat and Eon a vey it into Caius a a Listone of smile three Hundred Yards.

All but four teachers present Tim opening session of the Montour county teachers Institute was held in the High school room monday afternoon. Of the seventy five teachers of the county All but four were enrolled. The showing in Point a if attendance was a Little less flattering than last year when All the teachers were enrolled at thu opening session. In All probability today All thu teachers employee a will res kind to the Roll Call. The devotional exercises monday were conducted by thu Rev. Joseph k. Guy. Pastor of Shiloh reformed Church. Or. George Leslie Omwake of 1 Ursina College and or. Paul Martin Pearson of Swirth Nitro College the principal instructors of the week each occupied a period. In the introductory addresses the speakers were Able to touch Only lightly on their subjects. Each however made a most excellent impression showing not Only that he was Complete master of his theme and Hall new and original ideas to offer hut also that he was a speaker whose personality and methods employed were such As Are bound to please and attract. It required but one Short Al Drufle to bring speaker and teachers on excellent terms. Or. Oin Wake occupied the first it period. He a explained that his lecture would lie mainly in the Field of educational theory Boug simply a portion of his course in the philosophy of education which he gives to the seniors of ursinus College who aim to make teaching their life work. His opening address was a in the Quot vital forces of the school. A he made Clear the distinction Between those features of the school which Are merely material and those which Are organic. While we All realize that thu teacher Ami the Pupil represent vital forces we a to not usually act cent the full implication of this fact in our educational thinking As is seen in the figures of speech by which the teaching process is so often described we must beware of All analogies similes parables Ami allegories in on educational thinking. Human life can but fully let it mpr a pm titled a tuly in. Terms a of itself. A corollary to the main proposition of life itself is growth. Here Tho teach i must keep in mind two principles that a if comple Temos and that of preparation. It is a mistake to think that maturity is essential to Complete no is. Life a an lie Complete at every stage and indeed should be. This makes it necessary for the team Lier to know life not merely from the adult View mint but in its genetic aspects. He will film present in children Many a tilings that arc according to the standards of grown up Jie Ople undesirable i vet which Are present in a Hihi life by i nature Ami which constitute legitimate Steps in his growth. To be Complete at every stage is also to in prepared. Life is always a preparation. Education must take account of this. Preparedness saves the Pupil from failure. For a child to experience repeated failures is to acquire the a habit a if failure. Many men fail in life lie cause they have been educated to it. Tin teacher also is a vital Force Ami needs to grow. The Best Way for a i teacher to keep from reaching the a Lead line is to i keep close to child life to live in the child a realm of experience. Further both teacher and child must be contributing forces. Both sometimes go i to school to Quot get out of it All that they a an. Such an attitude is fatal. Life Anil growth fall Short without fruit bearing. Progress is made Only by the Quot clash a of minds Quot and the usual older of exercises is desirable for the purpose of relieving Monotony. Tuesdays sessions. The second Day of Institute brought out a Good attend Luce 77 teachers All but our employed in the county being present. The subjects discussed by the instructors were practical in their nature Ami were clearly presented. The music was a feature that was much enjoyed. The Chaviel exercises tuesday morning were by the Rev. James Wollaston Kirk pastor of Mahoning presbyterian Church. The first period was occupied by or. Omwake on the Quot three Fields of pedagogy. A a it was a most excellent talk. The following Points Are noted or. Omwake stated that he had taken the measure of the rank and tile of teachers and that he did not think lie was mistaken in believing that there is an Earnest desire among them to increase their store of learning and Advance in their profession. Teachers he said should be socialists first of All in the things fundamental to their own particular line of work. In other Worrils it becomes necessary that they should lie master of the science of their profession just As a physician is or should be the master of the science of my Dicue. Teachers also should have an accurate knowledge of the sciences lying at to lie Bottom of their profession. Twenty five years ago this would have been relatively a easy matter because the science of education in those Days was not to be compared to that of the present. The Shaker commented on tie wonderful strides made educationally during the last Quarter of a Century. Owing to the growth of colleges and universities there is now an enormous amount of matter available relating to subjects that lib at the Bottom of the teachers profession. Time was when Ono could cover All subjects of education without much of an Effort at present however the subjects embraced or it Many and thu list of hip Lar volumes relating to education would constitute a fair sized Library. With the average teacher actually employed in teaching the Day is past who a ii in or she May leave school work and spend three or four years at some College or University in Pursuit of knowledge relating to the science a if teaching. Teachers however at the present time May Avail themselves of the Many works written Reading up Ami improving themselves even for thu highest Grade of school work while actually engaged in teaching. Or. Omwake his opinion the profession of teaching is one the knowledge of which include tin things that Are to be taught but that at the same time the teachers mental Range should run far Bey Oil that limit and grasp the whole Field of human knowledge and experience. Briefly the so weaker s purpose in the morning address was to Lay Bare what seemed to he the legitimate Field Foi to a Luis to labor in while prosecuting their studies and investigations in order to improve themselves As instructors of tin Young. The second period of the Forenoon was occupied by or. Pearson. He i Welt Especial la on Quot pronunciation a prefacing his address with some very common sense observations. To stated that a Over precise Ziemin can be just As vulgar in speech As an Over dressed person is in clothes. Such person May he said to be our who has just a Little knowledge. In a general Way he pronounces his words in such a manner As to Call attention to himself you feel that to is Quot very precise Quot and thus he attracts attention just As the Quot loudly Quot dressed person does to himself. A As a matter of fact or. Pearson when Linde of teacher tui.1 pupils i svs be really Only a i c i. I. A few words. At the same time Correct i pronunciation is As important and As not present a quorum was not present at the special meeting of Council tuesday a to called for the purpose of taking action on the plans for sewerage and sewage Scarlet fever the monthly report of the local registrar to the Bureau of vital statistics shows about the same number of communicable diseases that were reported a disposal Plant.

Thru a act of thus Wei made acquainted with much valuable data relating to sewerage and the sewage disposal Plant which will be acted upon subsequently. It was Learned among other things that the site selected for the sewage disposal Plant is located just below thu Creek s Mouth. Engineer Collins explained that the plans As made reduce the a Lunger from High water to a minimum. The filter bed will be elevated so that the Bottom drains will be three feet above the surface of the ground. He demonstrated that the River would have to Rise Twenty five feet above the present level before the water would Inte Feio with thu Plant at All that the River would have to Rise six feet still higher before it would put the disposal i Plant out of commission. I the voluminous packet was four us to i contain a valuable map of the sewer system of the Borough which is in effect a map of Danville showing Gulicki a addition the River Mulu Ming Creek and thu entire locality Down tin River including tin cry ekes Mouth Aud the site below if of the pro posed sewage disposal Plant.
