It proved to he a Good game on the whole although Danville lost the score being 22 to 10 in favor of Bloom Burg. The game in the Start was of the Snappy sort which fill an audience with Delight. The first goal a thrown by Bloom Burg and Bloomsburg kept on throwing them w Hile Danville fell into the rear. The latter a deficiency was accounted for on the ground that they were unused to playing together. To make matters worse during the. First half Sechler at guard injury 1 i foot and had to retire.

The shovel works it is said with Little outlay of in my could a adapted to the manufacture of other goods of a similar kind in which stamping machinery is brought into play. Trade conditions prevailing How Ever Are such As to discourage investment along any line and it is doubtful whether buyers would he plentiful even if the business were an old and Well established one. It is unfortunate indeed that a ale can not be effected As the Plant occupied by the shovel works is All that could he desired for manufacturing purposes and Danville stands sorely in need of the Industry. It can Only be hoj Ted that Trade conditions May Ini prove in the Early Spring with the result that a purchaser May be found for the Idle Plant and that it May he rehabilitated and started up without delay. Meanwhile our Board of Trade always delirious of improving Industrial conditions by giving the matter proper attention May be aide to assist in furthering the object 111 View.

He was plying the axe in the Woods when the log which happened to be fr0z�?oii caused tin axe to glance the out ire Width of the Sharp Blade sinking deep into his left foot. The flow of blood was copious and it was at once seen that the injury inflicted was of a very serious Natour Woolridge companions at once placed him upon one of Fie wagons in use at tin Woods and drove him with All haste to this City where to was taken to the office of or. T. B. Winter filed. The injury was found to consist of a deep gah extending Over the top and the Side of til foot from the base of the second to nearly 10 the instep. The tendons of the second toe were severed which constitutes some ground for tears whether the toe May not have to be amputated Hil a a whether lie will eve r have any use of it. Had it not been for the fact that he had on heavy rubbers along with the other footwear worn in the country which somewhat broke the Force of the axe. I Woolridge to la inks the injury would have been much More serious and that he would 110 doubt have lost the use of his foot. Over a dozen stitches were required to enclose the wound.

One of the infected houses goes out of quarantine today which leaves Eula one dwelling placarded in Danville. There is no diphtheria and the single Case of scar Latina remaining is the Only Case of infectious disease in town. The physicians agree that the Public health is Good considering the time of year. Their is some probability of grip becoming prevalent but from disease 111 any of its More fatal forms our town so Ems to enjoy a remarkable immunity. But few deaths from any cause have occurred sine the holidays. Workman a leg badly lacerated. William Baker of Welsh Hill an employee of the Reading Iron works had his left a g badly lacerated about 10 of clock last night. He was employed Al the shears and was standing near an endless Chain Lii h carries Tom Iron away when one of the pieces became Dis arranged the Sharp end striking him on the leg a Long deep Gash was inflicted which hied very badly. Or. Gurry sewed up the wound a Iii the county commissioners at their regular meeting saturday found themselves Cou routed with two important matters both outside of the usual routine of work hut which seem d to require prompt and decisive action. One of these was the question of a free ferry. In View of the extraordinary conditions on the River Many persons have brought themselves to believe that the Bridge Here is doom d. Citizens 011 both sides of the Stream have Learned to appreciate the benefits of a free Bridge and they will hear to nothing but a free ferry to take the place of the Structure in the event that it should follow the Fate of the Bridge at Berwick. In this matter t he Corn miss i owners of Montour at least Are of the same opinion a it Many fit their constituents and although a still have tie Bridge with us in View of Otlie application for a charter pending in which private individuals figure tin commissioners do not consider it any too Early to act. Accordingly on saturday the Board of commissioners decided to establish a free Terry to take the place of the Bridge in Case that Structure should he destroyed or rendered impassable. As the Bridge Here spans a Stream dividing two counties the Northumberland county commissioners of course have an equal voice with Montour county and a free ferry can he established Only by a joint discretionary action Quot of the two boards. No doubt is entertained however but a hat the Northumberland county Hoard will concur with the commissioners of Montour in a matter like this and the establishment of a free ferry should one be needed is considered As assured. Ti10 other matter before the county Soiu missioners which was not an every Day affair was the deciding of a contest for the office of assessor 111 West Hemlock which the two candidates s. B. Flick and g. J Deight Iller each had 28 votes. A thu matter was settled by the commissioners appointing c. .1 Deigl Vniller As a lessor.

Shultz 1" 1 Tori cd tin amputation filtered water at Hospital. Tin filter Plant at tin Hospital for the insane i practically completed and by tomorrow tin one thousand or More people at that institution will know it Means to enjoy the luxury it of filtered water. The trustees will hold a special meeting for the purpose of taking the filter Plant off the contractors hands. A it a companion to filtered water tin trustees will next be obliged to take up the matter of sewage which Ever since tin Hospital was built has polluted the River at this Point. The appropriation to the Hospital mad by the last a i Datura included $10,000 for a filtration Plant and $15,000 for the disposal of sewage. The trustees at once began to cast about for Soto method of handling t lie sewage which would divert it from the Riv a. Hut up to the present nothing has been positively decided up on. The w Aring system As adopted at Norristown was investigated but it found Little favor with the trusts. The proposition which received the most support was the laying of an 1h-Incli pipe trom the Hospital along the Bottom of the canal through the Borough connecting with the sewer of the latter at the Aqueduct and in return for the privilege to Grant to the Borough permission to sell to its citizens the right of connecting with the Hospital sewer. Permission to Lay the Pipo had been practically obtained from the Pennsylvania canal company although what effect the change of ownership might have on the proposition is not known. It was Learned yesterday from a reliable source that the idea of laying a sewer in the canal has been practically abandoned by the trustees and that the Waring or some Kindred system May he selected for disposing of the sewage on the Hospital grounds. Meanwhile the Susquehanna is being pollute to a alarming extent the sewage from the immense institution draining into the River scarcely a mile above the intake of our water works. The state was Liberal in its appropriation to afford Relief Ami no ii is would he More Gratifying to our citizens than that the disposal of sewage would he to a very first work entered upon by Ali a trustees when Spring opens of.

They have All the shrewdness and cunning of the genuine Willie hut they do not deceive the officers who keep a close watch Over them to so a that they soon leave town or at least that they do not beg or fall into profi Cua which May be worse. On of the latest problems that the school Board has to Deal with is How to keep the pupils supplied with drinking water. During the later part of last week the service pipe at the first 1 Ward school froze which Shur off the water from that building. Yesterday hie same thing occurred in the fourth Ward and that school building is with out water. How Long it will be before 1 the second and third Ward school buildings follow suit no one can Tell. The matter was discussed at length at the regular meeting of the school Board monday. It was the sense of the Board that it would not pay to Tiaw the pipes out As in All probability they would freeze again in a Short time. The digging would be a big it a and the total Cost might not be ass than $25. Borough superintendent Gordy reported that James Shultz had kindly granted the first Ward schools permission to got water on his premises. The superintendent favored fhe plan of employing a Hoy to carry water for the whole building timing tie limit at 1��?T buckets per Day. Which would give each of the rooms two buckets one in the Forenoon and the other in the afternoon. It was also recommended that the same plan be adopted in the Fourtly Ward. On motion of or. Pursel it was ordered that a Hoy be employed of each of the school building a where the pipes Are Frozen to carry water As no in mended by the superintendent. On motion of or. Fischer the use of fhe High school room was granted to the senior class 0110 night each week Between april 1st and the end of the term. On motion of or.

Greene called attention to the old school House 011 Center Street which he said was fast going to destruction. He knew of a Man who wanted to buy it and raised the question Why it Coull not be sold. Or. Fischer said the matter Hud been before the Board before and that complications were discovered which made it advisable to keep bands Oft. As tie building is to longer used for school purpose it is a question whether the Laud a Loes not revert to the original owners. On motion the matter was Laid upon the table. Superintendent Gordy said that Many requests by patrons had been made of him asking that the pupils be permitted to go to the River when the ice moves. He asked for the seut Imenit of the Board on the subject. After discussion it was decided that the pupils who present notes from their parents will have to be granted permission to leave but that All others should be kept in school. Of motion Seth Lormor was elected janitor of the third Ward school building for the remainder of the term. The following members a re present Keefer Orth Greene Pursel. Harpel Werkheiser.

Allen pastor of St. Peter s m e. Church sunday morning preached a Noble disc our to the p. O. S. Of a. Of Riverside and this City sum a eighty of whom were present in a body. The text is found in j27 -1 a except the lord build the House they labor in vain who build it. Except the lord keep the City the keep it in vain. The Sermon As appropriate the near approach of Washington birth Day began with an eloquent tribute to the lift Aud character of that Soldier and statesman. The truth of the first part of the text he said is firmly established the second Lause is the logical sequence As by the will of 011 r forefathers god in sided of and for them this material Structure High and exalted. >0 by our will As patriots and christians the same god Aud lord Over All will keep t he City in safety. What is our will Aud pleasure in the matter of our presentation let us examine our Faith and answer. The Sermon took a very comprehensive View of life noting the changed conditions which have Cometo pass in a few years and dwelling with teach apprehension upon the growing tendency toward commercialism which in marked 111 american life. The heart governs the Man Aud not the head. A Clever Man with a bad heart is a cons laut menace to society and yet to our shame be it said oar Public school system makes no definite attempt to train the heart. Gradually religion the Reading of the Bible teaching the commandments the enforcement of moral precepts As of divine authority have Given place to Mere secularism. Lest some class Small or Large in the Community he offended our schools Mut ignore the spiritual Side of our nature Aud teach us Only How to get along. The child s ambition desires Aud passions must go untaught and untrained with never a word of the great subject of duty to god. This is the goal toward which we Are tending. Crimes violent Ami cunning Are of the increase partly from other Cau gets of course but largely because of a Perrou defect in the education of the child. Soviet hog of vital importance is missing. A system which tails to Tram youth to the Yoke of discipline Aud obedience to make them Strong to control self and resist temptation is lacking in something. If u fails to turn out patriotic citizens. In abiding men. Aud women it fails the nation at a crucial Point. What shall we do give up the Public school system and Drift Hack into ignorance and illiteracy. God forbid make it a Rustrum cd for the propagation of religious opinions of the majority forcing the children of the Large and respectable minority to receive teachings hostile to the opinions of their parents god forbid neither alternative is necessary. To the ten commandments As a part of the course taught and commented upon neither Romi Rusf. Nor jew could object. Our fathers founded the Republic upon Liberty Ami Equality and dedicated it to the proposition that All men should have equal Opportunity but sad to say to Day her is a spirit Rife among is that would still t air in the to Quairry of the would annul the constitutional amendment that would Brand the immortal Lincoln s Gettysburg and Mangar to dress As fables and dream.
