Work is in Progress on several of the buildings. Albert Schain of Berwick arrived yesterday for a visit at the Home of his grandparents or. And mrs. S. Lowenstein West Market Street. Well there Lias been a lot said about saturdays game with blooms Huig it Lias been knocked in Danville and praised in Bloomsburg it has been discussed dispassionately and ferociously attacked for and and Down and crossway and then repeated countless times so that the second Lay after the contest there is scarcely anything to say that has not already been heard Many Many times by anyone who is interested enough in base Ball to listen. Heartrending it certainly was to have Providence Aid the treachery of a Danville Pitcher in swinging a game to the team that we desire More than anything else to beat. But allowing All the unpleasant features of the game itself pass is it not just As Well that Bloomsburg won we All know that for weeks the Fate of base Hall in Bloomsburg has been trembling in the balance. Dissections among the managers and players and dissatisfaction of the fans with both have followed a series of defeats of the Bloomsburg team. The knockers were out and attendance had fallen off to almost nothing and the path of the National game in the Columbia county seat was leading into dark places. A Victory Over Danville would a to More to revive interest and put the team Back of its feet than anything else. Done to you think that maybe he who sees everything even to the sparrows fall a loosed the elements and gave saturdays game to Bloomsburg to keep that town from forgetting that the Best of this life is found in continuing to strive against adversity. While Bloomsburg is our greatest rival tin rivalry is for the most part Friendly and we believe there Are few in Danville who would not be willing to give up a game to manager Sharp less boys in the race so that the rest of the series this summer Between the two towns can be played out. So far this season four games h aves each team with two wins. The statistics Are As follows june 4, Danville 4, Bloom 7. June 9, Danville 7. Bloom 3. July 15, Danville 7, Bloom 1. July 16�, Danville 3, Bloom 5. While Danville and Bloomsburg have each won two games and stand even at present Danville has the advantage in Points having scored 21 to blooms 16. It was in tie seventh which has come to be sort of a fetish innings in Danville base Ball lore that Blo Orns Borg won saturdays game. And the setting of that scene and the events of a Little while afterwards will not be forgotten for a while by the players or the people who watched. Danville had made one run in the first innings when us Lanfu a base on balls was followed by Livengood a sacrifice am two Bloomsburg errors. From them on until the seventh it was a draw neither Side scoring although the narrowest kind of margins saved tie tally Sheet from Sully Many times. All the while the storm Clouds were gathering but so intense was the ex-1 cite meet that Only for fleeting glances at the heavens were eyes taken off the Diamond. When Bloomsburg came in for the opening of the seventh the Flash of lightning and the crack and Roll of Thunder was almost incessant. The Pale yellow darkness that sometimes proceeds the heaviest storms spread Over the Field lint in spite of the ominous signs men and women sat glued to the benches. Steffen first up for Bloomsburg in the seventh hit clean to Center Field. Hino followed him and Laid a grounder Between first and second. By an unfortunate arrangement Between liven Good Aud Umlauf it has been decided that in Case hire hit the Hall liven Good was to cover second and the dutchman running to his Baso left open the spot where Hines hit passed through the infield. That should have been the first out. With men of first Aud second Crossin then Laid a spanking roller at Livengood which on second baseman cleanly err ored while Stettin scored. That should have been the second out. Dougher went Down Neitli to nipple Hino scoring on the play. Doughery a should have been the third out with but one score. Then started what is perhaps the an interesting Case involving the payment of collateral inheritance tax of Large sums was argued before judge Evans Saturn Lay. The argument was based of a petition presented to court by the Register Aud recorder asking for a citation to show canse Why collateral inheritance tax. Alleged to be overdue should not be paid of certain sums involved in the estate of John r. Bennett. S. Ammerman Aud Grant herring represented the Commonwealth James Scarlet h. M. Hinckley Ami Ralph Kisner appeared for the respondent. The argument was opened by r. S. Ammerman. It was represented that John r. Bennett died Juno 21, 190,5 that his last will and testament was made at Paris in 1u03 Aud was admit Oil to probate Here in 1905. Tire will bequeathed the entire estate to Ellen Coleman Bennett the wife subject to the payment of $2.5,000 to Sarali Craig Bennett sister of the testator. Or. Scarlet a answer admitted tire facts. The argument was taken no by or. Herring who spoke for Over an Hoar citing numerous authorities to prove that the collateral inheritance tax is duo not Only outline $25,000, which by the terms of tire will were to go to the sister Sarah Craig Bennett but also on $130.000, which were paid to eight other relatives of John r. Bennett by the wife of the testator in order to secure a release when they threatened to contest the prorating of the will. The ground of which the contest was threatened was that John r. Bennett at the time of his death was not a resident of Montour county. Had the contestants won they were prepared to carry the contest into new York state. The final the circumstances alleged would have been that mrs. Bennett would have received Only a Dower. The result of it All was that the widow agreed to $130,000 to secure a release which permitted the will to stand. Sarah Craig Bennett joined with the Brothers and Sisters in the release in consideration of the payment of #130,000. Or. Herring contended that the release a Loes not deprive the Commonwealth of the collateral inheritance tax of the $2-5,000 to be paid to the sister by the terms of the will that it accrued immediately on the death of decedent Ami that its payment can in no Way be evaded. That the legacy was vested in Sarah Craig Bennett the sister was confirmed by the release. The state is made one of the beneficiaries along with the sister it becomes vested of a right to a portion�?5 per the legacy and the sister had no Power to convey away the rights of the Commonwealth although she herself surrendered All claim to the $25,000. In conclusion or. Herring cited authorities to show that under All the circumstances prevailing the state had a right to five per cent of the $130,000 paid out by mrs. Bennett to secure release and which thereby because vested in collateral. Or. Hinckley of attorneys for the respondent took the position that mrs. Bennett in order to avoid contest paid the entire amount�?$130,000�?out of her own pocket that this san also paid Sarah Craig Bennett the sister who joined in the contest Aud did not receive the $25,000 prov Ideal by the will. The Case he contended does not come in under the act of 1887 quoted by or. Herring As none of the $130,000 was bequeathed by the decedent dial not pass from his hands but was paid out in Compromise As above explained. He cited authorities at length to show that Mcney paid our to collateral heirs to Settle dispute is not subject to inheritance tax. Sarah Craig Bennett took nothing under the will. The $25,000,therefore, that the will provided should be paid to Hor like the $130,000, is exempt from collateral inheritance tax. Or. Scarlet spoke briefly. He took the Broad ground that no collateral inheritance tax is due As the estate wont to a Lineal heir. The court took the by lightning continued on 4th Page. York july 20. A mischievous Holt of lightning which found its Way into the Home of John Wildemuth at Shrewsbury hiring a severe storm played a weird prank 011 i Idem nth who was seated in the Kitchen one Arm resting upon a Zinc lined sink through which the Bolt apparently came from the Earth. The lightning not Only shocked Wildemuth severely but turned a cheap Metal Button worn by him As a shirt stud into a miniature electric Light which shone brightly in the Semi darkness of the room frightening Wildemuth Anil others of the family who witnessed the phenomenon. It requires a lot of strenuous Effort to Lead the simple o. H. Ostrander the Veteran civil Engineer of the South Side and father of real estate agent George b. Ostrander tuesday paid Danville the first visit in eighteen months. He spent several hours in the office of his son Mill Street where lie was called upon by a number of our townsmen.

Later he took no bookkeeping. He was employed by the Grove Brothers among others and was always prominently identified with affairs. His memory is remarkable and in reverting to old times he is Apt to recall Many incidents of the town history that Are Well nigh forgotten. Or. Ostrander was one of the promoters of the Borough of Riverside. He is inclined to concede to the late George w. West the Honor of taking the preliminary Steps in the founding of a town on the South Side of the liver. At the same time facts Are on record to show that or. Ostrander was among the first on the ground and that it was due to his Enterprise and personal sacrifices that a Church was built and the Little Boroug i was placed no of its feet. The nucleus of the town was Laid prior to 1870, Anil from that time 011 or. Ostrander was a leading spirit on the South Side. As civil Engineer Here or. Ostrander is in Possession of Aud has at ready command an enormous amount of data relating to Boundary lines of occasion proves of incalculable value to on town. To is frequently consulted in such matters. Or.
