There i a Case of smallpox at Cameron about five Miles below Danville and to make tin matter worse the disease exists in the postmasters family in the very nil Dirgin which the Post office is kept. The disease was not diagnosed As smallpox until yesterday afternoon. The patient is mrs. Clayton Hassinger of Tamaqua daughter in Law of Samuel Hassinger the Cameron Post master. The unfortunate woman is hut Twenty two years of age. Her husband is a railroader running Between Tamaqua Aud Philadelphia. Mrs. Hassinger arrived at Cameron quite recently for the purpose of spending a few weeks with Lier husbands parents. The woman was taken ill during the latter part of last week. Or. H. W. Burg of Northumberland was called but did not suspect smallpox until later. Yesterday he called up or. R. Kimerer of this place and asked him to meet him at Cameron for the purpose of holding a consultation. Or. Kimerer complied and the result was that All doubt was removed and the disease was diagnosed As Semi confluent smallpox. The effect produced of the quiet farming Community by the discovery that it had a bad Case of smallpox in its midst can easily be imagined. The Case exists in Point township Northumberland county where in common with other farming communities then is no organized Board of health. The school Board is supposed to assume the function of the health Board and to employ All approved precautions when contagious diseases exist. The worst feature in the present ease is the fact that the disease exists in the same building with the Post office. The two physicians yesterday advised Tho Post master to hold the mail until advised by the Post office authorities How to act. After the consultation the physicians drove to this City Aud last evening held a conference with postmaster harder relative to the fumigation of mail Etc. Whether the quarantine Over the infected family shall be effective or other Wise will depend on Trio Point township authorities hut one thing that May to relied Apon is the fact that no precaution will be omitted by the Post Ollie department and none need fear that the mail going out from Cameron will be permitted to assist in the spread of the disease. How to Seo lie in Council fast in a Snow Drift. That the drifted roads form quite m. Obstacle to travel was demonstrated yesterday by the experience of William Gething of frosty Valley who undertook to drive into town before Daylight. He had scarcely proceeded a mile before his horse became fast in a show Drift. In floundering about he succeeded in stripping the harness from his body. Or. Gething caught his horse hut a moment later As he turned to pull the Sleigh out of the a now the animal discovering that lie was free took to heels and ran All the Way Home or. Gething following on foot. Half an hour later Man and horse were again on their Way to town a new set of harness taking the place of the old which were completely ruined. Evangelist before workingmen. The evangelist Schiverea held a ver it a successful meeting at the structural tubing works yesterday noon. This was the evangelist s second visit to the tubing works and that he had a Welcome on his return was clearly indicated by the interest and cordial manner of Tho employees. The talk was one that was calculated to Trike borne to the hearts of the work i men and before the evangelist parted three had signified their int Ilion of taking Jesus Christ As i their Savior. Today at noon a meeting was held at the stove works. Discovered just in time. Fire broke out in Tho residence of Emanuel Young yesterday morning and but for timely discovery it would no doubt have destroyed the House and imperilled the lives of the occupants. It was before Daylight when the House was found full of smoke and a Hole burned in the floor beside the Kitchen stove. The fire was extinguished without much difficulty but a few minutes later the entire rear of the House would have been enveloped in flames. The fire is supposed to have started from the Kitchen stove. How Best to secure Good sidewalks is always and everywhere a puzzling question for municipal authorities. That it is a most important one there will he no gainsaying. Everybody uses the walks to a greater or less extent. The people so comfortable fixed i As to be Able to own carriages and automobiles Are few and far Between. Hence Good walks a appreciated generally even More than Good roads since so Many More people walk than ride. The Laws regulating walks arc sonic what Peculiar in that they Lay the responsibility for their condition on the municipality yet compel tin property owner to Bear the expend. Let a sidewalk get out of repair an 1 somebody As a result suffers injury the municipality is called upon to make recompense for the damage. That is a just provision perhaps since the town authorities Are Given the Power and Are required to compel property owners to keep their walks in repair. Nevertheless tin system in practical operation results in no end of bad walks not infrequent accidents and endless friction Between property owners and town officials when the latter attempt to enforce Tho provisions of the Law. Some More efficient plan with regard to walks is badly n a did an Las a step toward the practical solution of the vexed pm Tion the scheme adopted by the authorities of Palmyra n. J., is attracting attention. The promoters of the scheme Are working along the excellent Rule that it should to the aim of the municipalities to encourage and Aid As far As possible the laying of Good walks rather than to antagonize property owners Many of whom find it somewhat of a Burden to provide Good walks such As t Lionso of Flagstone or Concrete. Palmyra a plan is for the town to Lay walks wherever needed. Those already Laid under the plan Are of Concrete. The work being done under contract the Cost is reduced to a minimum. While the uniformity of the walks adds materially to the neat appearance of the streets. The expense of the improvement is charged to the property owner in front of whose lot the walk is Laid but the Bill is paid at once by the town the property owner being Given ten years in which to reimburse the municipality an annual payment of ten per cent being required. Bonds Are issued for the purpose of tue. I v Jug outset when a Large number of walks Are Laid. It is expected that within a few years the number of new walks to be Laid each year will become so Fow that sufficient Money to carry out the novel sidewalk plane an it a taken from the general fund. This is considered a mos excellent plan. It requires simply that the municipality shall Advance a few thousand dollars to the property owners free of interest. When the great advantage gained is taken into consideration it seems that the weight of evidence is strongly in favor of the plan. Palmyra has suddenly jumped into favor As a residence town on account of its Superior streets Aud walks. The Borough Council held a regular meeting Friday eve hut no business was transacted. The proceedings were held up Lor i Over two hours by a stubborn dead lock with the members on one Side j and the president on the other who refused to put or. Patten s motion. The proceedings Lead hardly begun when or. Patton renewed his motion of the last meeting which was a seconded on that occasion namely that the Borough proceed to procure an established Grade. Or. Kemmer seconded the motion list president Vastino declined to put the question explaining that the motion was Only a part of a scheme looking to the payment of or. Africa s Bill Aud that he As president of Council had a right to refuse to put any question which he considered detrimental to the Borough. Those favouring the motion vigorously contested the presidents position and declared that Tho members should by Given an Opportunity to vote our. Patton a motion or that no other business should be transacted oven if they had to remain in session until morning. Or. Patton was especially emphatic on that Point. He reminded tin president that he was one of a committee appointed to wait upon the Borough solicitor to see what could be done looking to a uniformity of Grade and that or. Gearhart had informed them that legally speaking the Borough has no established Grade. He affirmed that he was not working in the interest of or. Africa or any one else. He called attention to the deplorable state of affairs existing in the Borough the 1 in a of uniformity in the matter of grades which on the pavements amounts to positive Pitfalls and stated that sooner or later an Accident will occur As the result of which the Borough May be mulched in heavy damages. He protested that the president had no right to refuse to Fiat a motion which had been duly made and seconded. In order to hold his Point lie had remained standing. President Yastine declared that the present was not the Timo to take action and requested or. Patton to sit Down. The latter declared that he had the floor and that he intended to hold it until the question was put. Thus the time passed periods of silence in which Council resembled a Quaker meeting alternating with noisy periods when hot headed words were spoken that would nor look Well in print and tin members to express their a a a a 1./io to is aha a 11 i c clenched fists.
