During her Long life which spanned nearly a Century of time she beheld the primitive forests Over wide sections fall acre by acre. Instead of the wilderness cultivated Fields with farm buildings highways and villages met her Eye and the face of the whole country became changed. Those Horn into the world around her even during her Early womanhood lived i fair allotted Lime and Ripe in years passed away while she still lived on. Although not survived by any sons or daughters her grandchildren Are quite numerous. It was no unusual thing for her to find herself the Center of a group of her own descendants embracing no less than five generations. Time indeed dealt kindly with the aged woman and notwithstanding her advanced age up to within a year or so ago she seemed quite Active and Possession of All her faculties. Hen in her Ninetieth year it was no nuns Al thing for her to walk from her Home on upper Bloom Street to Riverside and unattended to visit about among her relatives.

Corps of teachers hauled Over the monday night. Goals and measures the school Board held its regular meeting of last monday night. There was but Little business of hand and the directors found time to haul the teachers Over the goals. Or. Keefer reminded the Board that at the previous meeting a two weeks Holiday vacation was granted the teachers solely upon the grounds and on their representation that Twenty two of the corps of Twenty eight employed in the Borough desired to accompany the excursion of the Bloomsburg Normal school to Washington on monday next. It now develops he said that but six will accompany the excursion. Quot such trifling with the he declared Quot should not go a rebuked a and he requested the newspaper representatives present to give the matter a publicity it merits. He would advise the corps of teachers he said not to apply to the Board again for a similar favor. Messes. Fischer and Werkheiser expressed themselves in a similar Strain.

There is no intention to reflect upon tile honest dealer such As Danville and every other town possesses and who is always the first to invite investigation. But that irregularities in one form or another creep into Trade no Oue will dispute. Hence precautions Are to be taken by the employment of such safeguards As have been provided by the Wise forethought of Law. The agitation started by the dairymen has naturally drifted into other channels. Notably the curb store Market. This suggests the subject of weights Aud measures and the question is pertinently asked whether the Borough is mindful of its duty by subjecting these to their periodical tests. Some seven years ago the Borough began to suspect the integrity of some of the weights and measures employed in the curb s one Market. Here and there Scales were used so old As to be deemed unreliable even if the weights employed by Long service had not become Quot Short. A pint and quart measures were wrongly employed liquid measure being used in dealing out both milk and dry substances such As nuts dried Corn and the like. The Borough Council at the expenditure of considerable Money procured a Complete set of government Standard weights Aud measures. These were put into service for a Short time. The vendors of the curb Stone Market in the use of Scales and measures of All denominations were obliged to conform with the government Standard. All this however As before stated was seven years ago. Have the weights Aud measures been put to use since ? this is the question that is being asked. As history is Apt to repeat itself who knows but that the same questionable conditions As to weights and measures exist in the Curbstone Market today that were there when it was found necessary to Purchase the Standard set. Bring out the Standard instruments therefore and put the weights and measures used in Market to the proof. It is a duty already too Long deferred. John p. Weaver reported dead. John p. Weaver the Well known Farmer residing in Toby run hollow who drove into town monday morn a ing on business met with a most unusual reception. About every third Man he met struck an attitude of Blank amazement. No one took pains to inquire As to or. Weavers health but at once expressed the greatest kind of Surprise that he was alive. Explanations were in order when it was Learned that a Rumor was on the streets sunday night which gained a wide currency yesterday morning to the effect that or. Weaver had dropped dead at his Home sunday evening. How the report originated the Man has not the least idea As he is in his usual Good health with every prospects of holding on to life for some time longer. Or. Weaver was reported dead once before. Knapp paid his Fine. William Knapp was arraigned before Squire Bare yesterday afternoon charged with drunkenness. He was arrested while staggering around the Street in the morning and placed in jail to sober up. Fine and costs amounting to $5 were imposed of him. Knapp said he had no Money Aud expressed a desire to serve five Days in the county prison. The Justice however sentenced him to the lock up. On the Way to the Bastile Knapp thought better of the affair and decided to Hustle around for the where withal to pay his Tine. He succeeded in borrowing the Quot five Quot which he handed Over to Justice Bare. Struck by Boom pole. Charles Kennedy a resident of South Dauville. I employee of Shepperson 6c Bailey met with a bad Accident on monday.

Board of health act what Milton has done to Ward off Small pox. The situation As to Small Pix with sch succeeding Day assumes f greater seriousness in View of which the towns of this Section with scarcely an exception contemplate the adoption of measure is. Thorough going and unsparing in their nature to Ward off if possible the dreadful Scourge. In addition to the Case of Small pox which Inadel its appearance in Sunbury. Munda three new eases have developed in of Hazleton. That the next Case reported May be nearer Home is quite within the Range of probability. The town of Milton has grappled with the Small pox problem in a Way that promises very practical results. At a meeting of the Board of health there a Resolution was passed requesting All persons who had not been successfully vaccinated within the past six years to have it done without delay. The Board of health is vested with nearly unlimited Powers in matters that pertain to the Public health and an order requiring vaccination once made is Likely to go into effect with Little or no opposition. At this Day no one doubts the Efficacy of vaccination while a the desirability of being immune from such a loathsome disease impels a person to almost any sacrifice. At such times As the present almost every individual contemplates vaccination. Like Many other unpleasant duties however it is frequently postponed until too late. It is at such a juncture that a Resolution by the Board of health such As passed at Milton becomes of incalculable value in arousing the people to a sense of their duty. If Danville is to profit by its experience in the past it should be the last town in the state to omit any precaution that might prove instrumental in heading off Small pox. Right Here there is work for on Board of health. Will it imitate the action of Milton or has it some Othar measure in contemplation equally effective by All Means let something be done. Fine Ial.
