Brewery intersecting the Borough and lying in the condition of an open sewer is already disgustingly foul and nauseating and has called Forth the usual storm of protest from those who live along its course. During former i years it was not until August and sept a Ember that the run showed up at its very worst from the Early Date therefore at which it takes on its foul and repulsive character it would seem that the Stream this season is prepared to break its rec it re As a nuisance. Several of tie. Store on Mill Street suffer seriously from the effects of the polluted Stream.

A representative of this paper on thursday last had a conversation with a Well informed resident of East Danville who furnished some information relative to that suburb which can not fail to interest our readers. In the first place he said a East Danville Quot comprises Only what was formerly known As a Mechanicsville a that is the houses lining either Side of Bloom Road from the farm of the late David Diehl just above the Odd Fellows cemetery Entrance to the a White Church a situated about a half a mile further up the Road. This was called a a Mechanicsville from the fact that when the name was adopted some Twenty live years ago every Man residing Between tie two Points named was a Mechanic. When the name a East Danville Quot is used the limits set should he borne in mind otherwise the name will he improperly applied. East Danville by actual count has a population of 94 and according to our informant can justly Lay claim to a degree of longevity among its residents that challenges comparison. For every ten persons in the place there is one Over or nearly 80 years of age. The names of the latter follow together with their exact years mrs.

That populous stretch of Bloom Road Between the Borough line and the old Fellows cemetery seems to he at present without a name except the very general one of a Mahoning formerly in was known As a Rudy town a As the majority of the houses were occupied by families of that name.

More about the canal. The abandoned canal at Milton with its unavoidable accumulation of filth is it would seem a great a menace to the Public health As in this City and How to get rid of the nuisance is a problem that has not As yet been solved. The prevalence of sickness fir to became noticeable among the employees of the car works. To relieve the situation the proprietors scattered Over a Hundred bushels of Lime along the Bottom of the canal. The example was followed by other industries in a fruitless attempt to disinfect the dirty waterway. The citizens of Milton Are thoroughly indignant and have appealed not Only to the Pennsylvania canal company but also to the state Board of health to Allord temporary Relief an arrangement was effected thursday by which water was turned into the canal the Borough of Milton to pay for the luxury at the rate of $46 per month. Apropos of the above it might be remarked that the Bottom of the canal Here along its entire length has again be come a hot bed of disease Breeding Miasma. At Many places the water is covered with a Green scum. Obviously it is not too soon fur the Board of health to take hold of the matter in order to Ward Oil a pestilence later in the season. There is already a prevalence of chills and fever Here with other forms of malaria quite unusual at this season. Most exciting and hotly contested game of the season.
