Tin Danville knitting Mills entered upon a monday which place our town in the front rank in the stocking manufacturing Industry and gives wage earners Hen a remarkable advantage. Reference is made to the seven eighth automatic four color knitting machines just installed which in construction very nearly reach the Acme of perfection the sole right for whose use is owned by Thomas West and which will result in driving the English stocking out of the american Market. The machine is a Marvel of ingenuity and aside from the Speed is dexterous a i let unerring beyond anything that a a onid he attempted by the human hand. No More fascinating sight can he imagined than to watch the various lightning like movements of the intricate machine As without the least manipulation by the human hand it begins and completes the stocking weaving in the four different colors horizontally or vertically or both ways on the same Hose forming a checker work of colors. The Best that could be accomplished on automatic knitting machines heretofore and that was considered quite an achievement was to weave in two different colors. When colors above two were employed they had to lie Woven in by hand that is. The machine had to he stopped at a certain Point and manipulated by the operator until the Stripe was run in. Tin advantage of the new machine is apparent it requires less help and increases the product immensely. The seven eighth automatic four color machine is an invention perfected by or. West himself. Not Only is the machine covered by Patent but also the stocking it knits. Thus while they Are the Only machines of the kind in the world they an controlled solely by or. West whose intention is to bring them to this City where they will eventually displace All the older Type of machines in use. The sixteen machine started up monday Are in charge of William West son of Thomas West and miss Katie Sharp. 1m Ith of Plymouth. The former Isa mechanical expert who set up the Machii s and will keep them in order while it will be tin duty of the latter to instruct tie help. One hand can operate four of the new machines. As soon As the four hand i a tired have Learned to operate tin consignment of machines installed Aneth r Hatch of sixteen will be ordered when the hands already instructed will teach others and so on until the Mill is full of the new and improved machines. It does not seem difficult to learn. A Young Man who took his first lesson monday morning by tin evening was tolerably proficient. The new machines on the whole Are considered a Imon. They increase tin earnings of the hands materially t in person can More easily operate four of the new machines than two of tin old ones and with anything like application can earn 82 per Day. The goods manufactured Are of the finest Quality. Tin stockings in every respect will Donn up to tin european Hose with this advantage that while tin european article has a seam Down the Back and the Heel sewed on. The product of or. West a new machines Are seamless being knit round with Heel and toe Complete. The european article which Sells at 50 cents per pair and has heretofore defied american Competition will have to give Way before or. West As his product so Well protected is a Superior Hose and can la sold in this country at 25 cents per pair. A Slick piece of robbery. Miss Sydney Goodykoont of Allen Wood who had been visiting at the Home of Joseph Hunter East Market Street left saturday for Middletown. Conn., where she is employed in the Hospital for the insane. In company with her sister miss Sadie she arrived in this City tuesday last. On their Way from a Lien Wood to Danville they had planned to Stopin Williamsport Between trains for the purpose of doing some shopping. Arriving at that Point however. Miss Sydney found that she had been relieved of her chatelaine bag which she carried at her Side and which contained eight dollars in broach lace Collar and a return ticket from Williamsport to Hoboken n. J. The support of tie bag had been very neatly severed As with a pair of scissors. Owing to the crowded condition of the car the t to Sisters were obliged to take separate seats miss Sydney occupying a seat with a rather Stout lady who was Cross eyed. At Montoursville the woman left the cars. As she arose she asked miss Goodykoont to assist her in putting on her Cape the latter kindly complying. The supposition is that the woman Cut the bag Loose while seated in tie c in and that while miss was assisting her with her wrap she dexterously picked it a her Bjorvand secreted it about her peril a.

The school Board held a regular meeting Manilay night. Then was Little business in hand and the session was Short. Truant officer w. E. Young reported Many children detained from school owing to measles who probably have a right to attend. The difficulty lies in the fact that owing to poverty no physician has been called and although the infected family May have passed the limit which permits the child to return to school yet there is no one to Issue a certificate to that effect and without a certificate As is Well known the teacher is not permitted to admit the Pupil. In three wards officer Young said he found fifteen families whose children now Well Are out of school on the score of measles.

According to All accounts our town must be full of thieves.

William Morgan who is employed in tin knitting Mill and boards at the residence of mrs. William Voris. Church Street is one of the latest selected As a victim by the thieves. Oil saturday Forenoon a stranger representing himself As a watch maker called at his boarding place and asked for or Morgan s watch. The timepiece he said needed repairing that Morgan wanted it on sunday and being too Busy to leave his work had requested him to Call at the House and get the watch. Mrs. Voris was not a person to be so easily caught and refused to produce the time piece. The fellow was quite persistent. The watch he said was in Morgan s room and tried hard to induce mrs. Voris to go and get it. The woman still refusing the fellow finally left. When or. Morgan returned to the House at noon he was surprised to learn of what had occurred. The would be thief by that time had ample Opportunity to get out of the Way. As mrs. Voris recalls him he was tall and slender in person with a Short Light moustache. He wore dark clothes and a Brown Slouch hat. Death of Robert Dodson. Robert e.

Murray Africa before Council in special session saturday evening. The subject of sewerage which has been kept in the Hack ground since last summer has again come to the front. A special meeting of Council was called saturday night last for tin purpose of taking action on the plans and specifications prepared by j. Murray Africa and to pay the Bill rendered by that gentleman for professional services. The following councilmen responded to the Call Davis George Sechler Yastine Fetter Man Kemmer m. D. L. Sechler Jones Mclain Dougherty and Brandt. It. Murray Africa was present at the meeting. Being called to the floor he explained that he had made a careful examination of the Borough and completed a Survey. Upon arriving Here last summer he said lie was careful to make inquiries As to whether or not there was a map of the Borough in existence. He was informed that there was none. Acting upon this information he said he proceeded with the Survey. Or. Murray exhibited the map to Council which showed the Elevation of every part of the Borough. The plans and specifications he said were in the hands of the Printer and would not he completed for three or four Days. He explained at length the different methods which might be employed in severing the town. While a combined system taking care of the cellar drainage and the rainfall might be Best for one part of the town a separate system would he advisable in another portion. For instance along blizzards in he did not think it would be practicable within the limit of the Borough s resources to construct a sewer that would do More than carry off the sewage. The excess of water in times of flood he thought would be too hard a proposition to tackle and it would have to be permitted to Drain off on the surface As at present. In the matter of outlet there is Only one plan to consider. If it were not for contaminating the water Supply the Cost could he considerably diminished by severing direct to the River. He recommended that the entire system Drain into one trunk outlet. So that should the Borough at any time in the future be restrained from polluting the River it would find things facilitated for getting rid of the sewage according to another method namely by erecting a Plant to filter the waste. The outlet As proposed will enter the River at a Safe distance below the water works in the Vicinity of the third Alley below Chestnut Street. The sewer. Or. Africa said would he constructed largely of Brick pipe could not he used with advantage where a diameter greater than 24 inches is required. The Cost of severing the whole Borough he said would be $70,000. This would insure a Complete and durable system. Leaving out Welsh Hill the work could he done for $50,000. This would include All that part of the a or Ong which is built up and where sewerage will he essential during Many years to come. If permission could be obtained to Lay a sewer along the Bottom of the canal Between Railroad and Mill streets he said a vast amount of excavating might be avoided which would diminish the Cost $1000 or $1200. It became apparent As the meeting progressed that Council were divided on the subject of sewerage and that the lines As drawn months ago had changed Little if any. Everything remained Serene however until or. Africans Hill was submitted. This read As follows Huntingdon Jan. 11, 1902. Borough of Danville to j. Murray Africa or. Professional services Survey preparation of plans and specifications for Complete system of sewerage $2000. Or. Dougherty moved that the Bill he accepted. Or. Brandt seconded the motion. M. D. L. Sechler said he objected to the Bill and would not vote for its payment As the committee which authorized the work had overstepped its instructions. Or. Yastine endorsed or. Sech Lerus View and declared that he could not support the motion. A Yea and nay vote was called for. Which resulted As follows yeas George Sechler Fetterman Kemmer. Dougherty and Brandt. Nays Davis Yastine. M d. L. Sechler. Jones and Mclain. The Secretary announced a tie and the president declared the motion lost. Just what the outcome of the matter will he is hard to determine.

It is said the a a flyer was late and was running to make up lost time. A Telephone message was at once Bent to Washingtonville whence a messenger was dispatched to the Home made desolate by the awful Accident. The effect of the news on the surviving wife can easily be imagined. David was the Only child of the household and As was not unnatural the Mother was strongly attached to him her Devotion and constant solicitude for his welfare often being remarked upon.
