Of Daniel attributes the fact of their never having heard of each other to the Between his age and the Ages of his older Brothers Aud Sisters who Are now All dead. His sister Louise married and moved up the state before he was born Aud his parents died when lie was quite Young. Consequently he never heard of his Cousin Kate.

Berry d. D., of Buffalo formerly editor of the Epworth Herald will press be. The session is expected to to get one of unusual interest for the various churches of the conference because of the Large Nam la or of important changes which May be made among the preachers. Two important vacancies will have to be filled those caused by the death of the Rev. Amos a. Baldwin presiding elder of the Danville District and by the election of the Rev. Or. William Perry Eveland As the president of Williams it Ort Dickinson Seminary. These will it is expected cause advancement All along the line. To fill the presiding elder ship Ami the vacancy at Bloomsburg two Good men will be required and they will be take. No doubt from Good churches. This will necessarily mean a in Meier of other changes. Three names have been suggested for the vacant presiding elder ship. The Rev. Emory m. Stevens pastor of the Pine Street Church Williamsport was known As one of the strongest presiding elders the con Fere Nee has Ever had and great pressure will no doubt lie brought to Bear upon him to again accept such duties.

Trial bottle fur Board of Trade the organization of an Industrial and improvement company among the residents of the South Side has suggested the question whether a Little activity among thu of the Board of Trade in Danville might not serve to show that that organization is still alive and help to promote the business interest of the town and Community. That a Board of Trade exists in Danville might not 1h known to Many persons. When a meeting was held last is not dear but certain it is that very Little has been heard from the organization in the Way of steady organized Effort for a Vear or More past. Meanwhile the need of activity to take care of our old industries and add new ones is As urgent As it Ever was. Obviously the advantages for manufactories in Danville Are so numerous Aud varied that the prom it Sittou of Landing new industries should not be a difficult Oue for an Active Board of Trade to handle. The knitting Mill Aud the silk Mill both Large and important industries operated on a paying basis their Small beginning the rapid growth and the promising future of each illustrate that conditions abound Here favourable for the Success Aud development of All such enterprises. The Board of Trade following its reorganization some two years ago held regular meetings for several Mouths. The members Are our lies our most Active and most influential citizens. They an capable of accomplishing much Good and it must he admitted that during their Brief though aggressive Cam Jiagu they brought about appreciable results quite apparent in renewed Enterprise and the promotion of business interest the Field was carefully looked Over in the quest for new industries and thus the town was kept in touch with Opportunity such As existed. Small industries were set 011 their feet and the welfare of older ones was carefully looked after. Time has brought to change in the Short interval and the same conditions which made the Board of Trade useful ill the it ast still exist today. There is still plenty of room for new industries in Danville while there never is a time that established industries do not need looking after. Not one of these for any reason should to permitted to close. It is tin Board of Trade alone that can keep in touch with the situation As it relates to each Industry and work for the general welfare. It is hoi Ted therefor that we shall hear of a meeting in a Short time As then Are rumours of changes affecting one or More of our industries that would seem to indicate that their future is crop a failure.

Cleavers delivery Wagon tax it a fright at the sound of blasting at the Bessemer blast Furnace on saturday Aud managed to separate himself from the vehicle in record breaking time. The Wagon was on Railroad Street just opposite the wide Gateway leading into the structural tubing works when an unusually loud blast occurred which struck the beast with terror. The Driver was unsuspecting and the horse crouching first gave a Spring with such Force and suddenness is to rip the harness asunder and to Clear the shafts at a single bound after which in his fright he went galloping out Railroad Street at doubtless the Best rate of Speed he Ever attained. The mud on Railroad Street at the structural tubing works saturday was something fearful to contemplate a Black Slough More the consistency of water than mud which like a bed of mortar Lay Between the two sidewalks. Stranded in the midst of this was the delivery Wagon with the Driver still sitting on the seat watching the retreating horse with the broken harness like so Many ribbons fluttering around him and the mud flying right and left. The whole thing occurred in a moment Aud it was some time before the Driver could take in the situation then he climbed Down out of the Wagon into the mud which was Over ankle deep. Meanwhile the horse was caught near the clock factory. The Swingle tree of the delivery Wagon was broken and it was not until after a Good Deal of delay Aud much wading around in the mud that the horse was re hitched and the Wagon drawn from the Hunters Good memory. A Little group of old timers Kindred spirits who love to dwell on the past were seated in m. Ii. Schramz a store the other evening. As usual their thoughts ran Back of r by gone Days. Many curious St Viies were told. One of these was caught on the Fly by a news scribe and in an abbreviated form is Here presented As a Sample of All the others. Oscar Mellis had the floor Aud he related an Odd circumstance to Illus trate How an unfailing memory May be relied upon to help Oue out in Many an emergency. It was sixteen years ago. Oscar said he was out Hunting on the other Side of the River. While tramping through one of the hollows below Kipps run he discovered to his horror that he had lost his tobacco. In the successful Pursuit of game with it it scar plenty of tobacco was As essential As powder and shot for the fowling piece. The Man was thinking seriously of giving up the Hunt when he heard a Farmer ploughing in one of the Fields nearby. He made his Way out of the Brush and approaching the Farmer made his plight known. Now. No matter what kind of a Man a tobacco Che we r May be he is always Liberal with his tobacco. The Farmer had a Large plug which he handed to Oscar the latter bit off a Gokl Mouthful and before returning the tobacco offered to buy the whole plug. There was no store near and the Farmer could to More plough without tobacco than Oscar could shoot squirrels without it under the circumstance the Weed was As dear to the agriculturist As it was to Oscar and Money was no Price. The Best that Oscar could do was to economize his Mouthful of tobacco and pursue game As Long As it lasted. For awhile he had Good Luck then As All the stimulating qualities became extracted from the Mouthful of tobacco he lost Liis cunning Aud no More game came his Way. He gave up finally and decided to go Home. Tramping along toward town he came to Alem Sechler a hollow at Kipps run. Here oscars Good memory came to his Rescue. The sight of the familiar hollow reminded him of another Hunting excursion nine years before when to was accompanied by half a dozen or More companions. He remembered that the party partook of a lunch in the hollow at a Point where 0110 of the sides of the Glen was formed of a solid Wall of Rock which leaned inward Over the Creek forming a shelter. What Oscar recalled with Especial interest was the fact that after the lunch the party being suddenly called to the Hunt threw away their cigars none of which were much More than half smoked. Oscar who was always economically inclined did not like to see the waste Aud merely As a whim gathered up the half smoked cigars from the ground and securely tucked them away in a Cleft of the overhanging Rock where they were High and dry. He thought nothing More about them until he recalled the episode on the second Hunting trip. What if the cigars still remained in their hiding place it took him Only a minute to find out. A Brief search revealed the exact spot where the party had eaten lunch. The overhanging Rock was there Aud there too was the Cleft. Oscar inserted his hand and As Good Luck would have it there were the cigars or fragments of cigars just As they were deposited there nine years before. Oscar did no to go Home not right away. He continued his Hunt tramping up and Down the hollow and Over the Fields on each Side. Meanwhile he chewed the with age Hail increased wonderfully in Wjk Tency and flavor so that the game hag that Oscar carried was not Large enough to hold All the game that fell under his unerring that Day.
