Pursuant to the announcement made in our last Issue the sixteen Inch Mill of the Reading Iron works just completed was started up monday morning. Five furnaces were fired up the Mill in question employing some eighty hands raising the whole number of men at work at the Plant to six Hundred. The starting up of the 20-Inch kelp Mill which will let a ready in a week or so. Will add nearly a Hundred men More to the list swelling the pay Roll up to its maximum number of some seven Hundred. A representative of this paper monday was kindly shown Over the new Mills by superintendent David Thomas. Although the big Plant is fast assuming its old time activity the works As rebuilt in so Many a joints embody improvements on the old that one finds in it Little to suggest the familiar landmark Laid in ashes which it has replaced. While it is True that the new Mill is built along the old lines in a joint of Structure it is entirely different. Instead of the lean tos on each Side of the Central Span which gave the works a Low and Flat appearance there Are now j spans of 89. 75 and 59 feet respectively. Each Span to feet from ground to Square which gives the mass of buildings a High and imposing appearance and admits plenty of Light and fresh air. In addition much floor space has been gained by the displacement of superfluous or obsolete machinery. First on the list of improvements is a nine foot Sturdevant a Blower a a one of the most modern extant operated by its own engine installed in the lean to next to the L. Amp w. Track adjoining the Roll shop which displaces the two old fans formerly in use and with one system of blast pipes supplies the whole Plant. The Roll shop which like the fans was previously operated by belting from the other part of the now an engine of its own. Two immense water Heaters each with its own pump Are being installed one attached to the engine of the no. 1 puddle Mill and the other to the engine of the 20-Inch kelp Mill. These Heaters will receive the exhaust of the two Ponder jus engines which will warm the cold water to very nearly the Ijo Iling Point before it is sent to the boilers. Thus will be effected a big saving in fuel. In the shipping department a new 60-horse Power engine has been installed to operate the punches and shears which bring tin entire number of engines at the Plant up to the number of Twenty ranging in size from the big 180-horse Power engines which operate the Rolls Down to the smaller ones of 15-horse Power. A new punch for doing heavy work a ponderous piece of mechanism weighing ten tons has just arrived at the Plant. In addition the shipping department which now lacks nothing in the Way of a a Stern appliances contains two sunken tracks making it possible to Load cars without lifting the Iron much above the level. Seven new boilers of the larger Type known As the to cd flue boilers have been installed. A great Deal of the Brick work is new. Three of the boilers had to be entirely re bricked All needed repairs. The stacks All had to be rebuilt or added to. The engines As Well As every other bit of machinery had to be overhauled and repaired. Among the new machinery set in motion monday for the first was a new swinging saw with engine attached in the 16-Inch Mill which takes tin place of two old stationary saws. Superintendent Thomas was gratified Over the Experiment of starting up As not the least hitch he said occurred in any department. The Mill was burned on the 2jrd of May last less than nine months having elapsed since the fire. Windows wit ii a history French plate Glass installed Over fifty years ago. Well known married. J. J. Newman and miss Sara Rosen Stein of this City were married tuesday afternoon at 3 80 of clock. The ceremony which took place at the residence of the Bride s Mother mrs. Rebecca Rosenstein.

Dora Marks and daughter Mary and mrs. Lena Lipschitz the latter sister of the Bride of new York mrs. J. W. Hovies and messes. Benjamin and r. S. Miller of this City.

Avenue and Church Street to Thomas West proprietor of the Danville knitting Mills whose Sun William West will take up Bis residence there on May 1st. John l Evans is Busy remodelling the dwelling Corner of East Mahoning and ferry streets which lie recently purchased Quot of Erwin Hunter and will have it ready to receive his family by the time he has arranged to vacate his present abode. It is very interesting to listen to a group of old citizens when they happen to fall into a reminiscent mood. Their conversation affords Many picturesque glimpses of the past when Danville was quite a different town from now. They were talking yesterday of the Plain store fronts of the Olden times and this brought up the subject of plate Glass. A Yon know that the oldest plate Glass in Danville the first introduced is to be found in the front of r. D. Mag ill s drug store ? it is French plate and the first Ever seen in this Section. The reporter took the tip he called on or. Magill and Learned a great Deal that was of interest. The two plates each 8 feet by 4 feet were installed in the year of 1850. They were imported from France unloaded from the vessel onto a canal boat and thus brought to Danville. They proved a great curiosity. People unaccustomed to any thing of the kind came in crowds to see the Large Glass. The Cost of each Glass was one Hundred dollars with a additional $10 for insurance. They Are of the very finest Quality and during the fifty years of their history have received some of the hardest kind of knocks and have never been injured in the least. When Robert Magill was a boy one of the Glass was struck by a base Ball thrown from the other Side of the Street. When the building was being remodeler Many years ago the Glass were Taku up stairs for Safe keeping. In bringing them Down one slipped from the hands of the workmen and fell from the top to the Bottom of the Steps. A quiet election and Light vote polled most excellent lecture. The lecture of Rev. J. Calvin Mead on a american types and traits at y. M. C. A. Last tuesday evening was one of the finest discourses Ever delivered in association Hall. The audience unfortunately was not Large but Little More than one third of the seats being occupied. Rev Mead is a speaker of magnificent presence intensely magnetic original in thought and eloquent in delivery. The lecture was analytic profound while a vein of irresistible humor ran through All which kept the audience in the Best of spirits. Among those whom the speaker held up As types of american manhood or of the different states of mind grown to be stable and True under the teaching of god s word were George Washington Henry Ward Beecher and Abram Lincoln. It is to be regretted that space will not permit the reproduction of More than a very few of the g Jod things that the speaker said in working out his thought. The chief end of Man. He said is to a glorify god and enjoy him the puritans in their views and practices lost sight of a a enjoyment As it related to god and religion. Thus their sons have turned their backs on the religion of their fathers. It is the duty of even son to Advance beyond his father and in this sense to be a a better Man. A with some the idea obtains that the chief end it it of Man is his stomach. Thus the a Mother makes a Good Cook of her daughter so that when old her husband will not depart from her. A a a conscience makes cowards of us ally he quoted and added a this is Why they say our mayor Down in Philadelphia can never be a Coward. A hot contest for the poor directorship candidates for Council and for school director also in the fight to win voters Cut Loose from party lines 10 every Ward. Death of William j. Mckee. William j.
