Poulterer stated that some three months might lie consumed in tearing Down the Furnace and get thug rid of the material. Much dem ads upon the kind of weather that follows.

The Furnace being dismantled was built in 1872 and somehow never came up to exp stations. It is Safe to say that it has been Idle during at least one half the time. It was built As an Anthracite Furnace and during the greater part of its history it possessed the disadvantage of not being of modern equipment. A new year resolutions. The year 1906 is but a few Days old and May still be classed As a kid. It will be some weeks before it will Lay off its Pinafore but it is in this adolescent period that it affords Opportunity and occasion for people of contrite mind to a swear off and turn Over a new Leaf. It would 1m impossible to estimate the number of resolutions that have been made by parties who have resolved to be Good during the coming year and longer if possible. The snap resolutions extent to and cover All manner of Short comings. Drinkers resolve to Stop drinking smokers vow that they will no longer Dally with the seductive Weed sweaters Pic age themselves to total abstention from a a cuss words nou cd Macli pm is allow their conscience to prick them for not being seen in the House of the lord and make a Resolution to 1m in Church every sunday and. If a Gissible in a front Pew. These resolutions usually hold Good for a Brief pm Rio a and those who make them Pride themselves in their reformation. But in a majority of such cases the backsliding soon begins. The Drinker at a very dry moment will conclude that a Small snifter will do no harm the reformed smoker will yield to the alluring odor of pipe or Cigar the Swearer who had determined not to indulge in profanity any More will find himself lapsing into his former imprecations the party who had determined to be at Church regularly during the year eventually has no difficulty in finding an excuse for staying at Home and Reading the sunday newspapers. This unfortunately is too often the outcome of Reform resolutions made at new year. It May be safely said that to so impotent a conclusion three fourths of them come. But this need not be so. Aud would not in if the res dilutions were made in Tho right spirit determination to car re them out.

Of course it Means close application hard work and absence from Home hut these things Are necessary in this Field of religious work especially if one experts to 1m of lasting Benefit to his Fellowmen. A or. Laumaster admitted that evangelistic work like All other forms of religious Effort has its Peculiar difficulties but this is to be expected particularly in places where interest in spiritual matters is at Low ebb. A a personally. Or. Laumaster said a i do us to believe in or practice sensational sentimental or extravagant methods to win men to Christ. The times demand the same old gospel message for All Meir and it must be proclaimed so As to reach the head and heart and not simply the emotional nature. Men must be saved through an intelligent Conception Aud a deliberate acceptance of the troth of gods word. A i have no sympathy with that form of evangelist a or. Laumaster explained a that seeks to amuse the people or that would work up an a amusement for the Sake of securing a crowd or that would unkindly criticise the churches or ministers or that would introduce a scriptural or Man made methods of any kind. These practices Only serve to bring the work District embraces the Hospital is a matter 011 which full information has ii to been obtained. In the first place let it be stated that Ihu Hospital for the insane with it population of some 1200 persons is a it oink Unity in itself indeed it might in added an afflicted Community in which till do ath rate Ruus High. Some inquiries were made along this Lino yesterday when it was Learned that a death May occur each Day for several Days in succession although it was to fought that 011� death a week at tin Hospital might be a pretty fair average for the year around. Convenience therefore in such matters As burial Aud removal permits count fora great Deal. The above suggests some very interesting facts c met ring the disposition of tin dead at the Hospital. In a general Way of the half a Hundred or so of unfortunates who each year end their dreary and troublous careers at the Hospital for the ius Aue nearly All Are shipped away from the institution to Points designated by relatives who Mak it themselves responsible for the burial. Iii very Many instances the relatives Are fou Uii Only after a Long and vigorous search carried on Over a wide territory. Not in frequently those who should be near and dear to the deceased Endeavor to keep in the dark and when run Down resort to Many subterfuges to avoid taking care of the remains. A rather Cimmo ii trick is the new county officers have entered upon their duties. District attorney elect major c. P. Gearhart was inducted into office at High noon monday. Proc honorary Thomas g. Vincent administering the oath. The county commissioners elect Charles w. Cook George m. Leighow and George r. Sechler were sworn in at the same time. Register and recorder w. L. Six ller administering the oath of office. The county commissioners at once proceeded to organize c. W. Cook being chosen president and George m. Leighow Secretary. There was a red hot contest for the position of commissioners clerk Aud there was a Good Deal of curiosity to see whether Horace c. Blue incumbent. Under the old Board would win out or one of several other applicants who considered their claims for the position Good. The question was settled by re electing Horace c. Blue who has proven a very efficient clerk in the past. Edward Sayre Gearhart was chosen solicitor by the Board of county commissioners. Or. Shultz or. Curry Aud or. Wintersteen were chosen physicians each to serve a year in the order above named. John Reppert was chosen As janitor for the court House. The last official act of the retiring Board of commissioners on saturday last was the appointment of James Ryan As mercantile appraiser. The county auditors Thomas Van Sant of Liberty township Amandas Shultz of Derry township and j. H. Woodside of Danville were sworn in to office at High noon tuesday. The Catawissa Bridge.

Tin Hospital authorities Are very persistent and leave 110 Stone unturned to find the relatives.

Before they pm be shipped either to the relatives air to the medical colleges. There is an Odd Case at the Hospital at present in which a it Oor unfortunate who is in Possession of enough Means to Bury him decently will probably have to go to the dissecting table. The Man died a few Days ago. An Effort to Liing relatives or at least any capable of bearing the exp my use of burying him proved fruitless. The overseers of flu poor in Tii District to which he belongs refuse to use the Money in his Possession to provide a decent burial but want to apply it to a Imhulse the poor District 011 which tin patient Isa charge. They oven put in a claim for a Gold watch which belonged to the unfortunate Man. This is tin status of Tinea let at present. Whether the poor Board can be induced to relent and pursue a More humane course remains to in seen. To permit the Rema Iua to lie at the j of evangelists As a whole into Disfavour with thoughtful christians and in some places closes tin door for so Kocial work of any sort.
