Score 2 to 1. The few who were fortunate enough to be witnesses of both of these games rather incline to the belief that saturdays argument went even a Little ahead of the Shiuey defeat in playing and excitement. Sure enough we can be that it was of the nerve racking Collar wilting variety bristling with hair breadth escapes for both sides thrilling plays that made the spectators forget the Brilliant work of one Man As soon As he had accomplished his turn to watch the circus stunt of another Tosser. The rain which proceeded the game kept Many Berwick fans in the shelter of their Homes or other places Aud the crowd was therefore Only fair their temerity Cost them the sight of lie prettiest game that will Likely be played on Fowler Field this season. The play was so tight that Many decisions that directly effected the score were so close As to be entirely umpires choices. Two decisions at the plate the run that Shatto scored in the first and nipples try for the plate in the ninth were both extremely doubtful hut in both cases the Umpire decided in Berwick a favor no though Many Berwick people were found after the game who believed the Umpire was wrong. But Kleckner was obviously trying to Frame up a Square Deal so not a word from hero against him. A during the eleven innings almost every Man on the Danville team had at some time or another a Chance to display his ability. Of the even 50 chances that came Danville a Way Only three were Eri ored. These were nipples Muff of Umlauft a throw in the fifth Wagner a drop of Patterson a line thrive in the same session and Veitha a juggle of mrs ser a roller in the seventh. So it will be perceived that Danville displays did not Advance Berwick runners in scoring innings. Rowe was in the Box for Danville Aud pitched the Fine Ball throughout the game of which we All know he is thoroughly capable when he wants to. Throughout nine innings he held Berwick scoreless when they were fighting like demons to push runners across the . Many times Berwick re users would be pawing the dust in the paths when the Side was retired. Rowers performance was marred however by the Lluli innings when two bases on balls issued to batters of doubtful ability were largely responsible for Berwick a winning run. Brennan in right Field was one of the stars of the game although Berwick gave him chances in but one innings the eighth. He played his position with both his head Aud his hands Aud is a big improvement Over his predecessor in the right Garden. The eighth was almost entirely Brennan a. His catch of Patterson a Fly was the first out. Bowers next up drove one of his Well known lines into jimmies Section for what with an Ordinary player would have been a clean hit but the Danville fielders Quick recovery and Fine throw retired the sex Sha Okiu player at first Flaherty a two Bagger follow Ami Metzler next up sent a hit into right Field on which Flaherty tried to score but Jimmie was again there with the goods Aud Cut the runner off at Home. The work of the infield again and again lowered Berwick a Hopes of scor a. The most Brilliant stunt being cutting off re users at second Rowe Aud Umlauf figured in three of these Quick put outs and Veith and Umlauf pulled off a fourth. Danville a inability to score More runs is due in a Large measure to Mussel who did Tho tossing for Berwick. He bestowed Only four hits on the leaders an error helping in Tho making of Danville a Only run. Only in four of the eleven in Uings did extra Danville batters face Tho Berwick artist. His work was very steady and sure Ami seemed to improve when Danville runners were of the sacks. Outside of Musser there was no particularly starry features gravitated to Berwick a credit. While not showy their work however was very steady which perhaps gets just As much. A a reds Metzler was in saturdays game after a period on the Bentti. Of course a a reds was thoroughly elated the school Board held a regular meeting monday eve. Owing to the oppressive weather the session was a Short one. The following members were present Deobler Orth Swarts Pursel Fischer Heiss Marks Cole Burns and Shultz. The principal business on hand was the awarding of the contracts for the cleaning of the several school buildings of the Borough. Of taking up the subject it was found that there was no bidder for the cleaning of the second Ward building Aud the matter was left in the hands of the directors of that Ward who will cast about to find some one who is willing to do the work. Contracts for cleaning Tho other Ward buildings were awarded As follows first Ward building mrs. Ella Kauffman $40.00. Third Ward building mrs. Caroline Halderman $24.50. Fourth Ward building mrs. Amelia Davis $22.50. There was Only one bid for cleaning the Welsh Hill school House which Tho school Board considered too High. The cleaning of this bin ling was left in the hands of the fourth Ward directors. On motion of or. Pursel it was ordered that the Borough sewer be extend id to the second Ward school building. On motion of or. Burns it was ordered that flush closets to installed in the second Ward school building. It was ordered also that bids for the same be invited to to in by next meeting night. Mrs. Kate mans Jones appeared before the school Board in tin interest of Spring water from the Maas farm which she desires to Supply to Tho pub lie schools. Tho matter was discussed by mrs.

Williams. 7.20 8.74teacher elected making waste places Beautiful the triangular plot of ground opposite the residence of Rev. J. B. Grier Aud bounded by Walnut Street Bloom Street Aud the driveway formerly occupied by the old Scales which has Ueen enclosed with a hedge Aud planted with Flowers is a forcible illustration of what May be done by individuals to transform homely and waste places into veritable Beauty spots. Until the citizens living near the triangular spot in question took the matter in hand it was always an eyesore in the Center of what is an attractive part of town being a sort of a dumping ground and treated As commons usually Are. The Fine Trees wit i their Shade make the spot inviting Aud All that was needed was a Little care and attention gratuitously bestowed to make the plot what it is today. The real lesson conveyed is that the Public As a body respect such efforts Aud avoid trespass ing nearly As much As though the spot were private property. How Many other spots there Are about town that might be cleaned up by the citizens sodded and planted with Flowers. What possibilities for picturesque effect the entire River front affords if instead of being made a dumping ground for trash it were properly Laid out and Planteo with Flowers and shrubbery. Up to the present it is True those owning property nearby have had but Little encouragement to fix up Tho liver front owing to the dumping of trash Over the Bank often done without the knowledge of the authorities. Sentiment has changed however and the Public is hardly in a mood to tolerate longer practices that might have been connived at in Tho is logical to conclude that our citizens will Wake up Aud that in the years to come the River front will to the most inviting part of town. The wonderful transformation wrought at memorial Park in the Brief period of a year or so demonstrates that the citizens of Danville along wit i their Enterprise Are not Blind to the Beautiful in nature and art.9 mrs.

Bloomsburg amp Berwick Railroad which crosses the Northern end of Montour county and the Only passenger wreck the Road has Ever had occurred tuesday morning at 11 80 of clock when the East bound train was ditched Between Mordansville and Eye Grove.

The train is known As passenger no. 2, due at Berwick at 12 80 and was running live minutes late making about 80 Miles an hour when the Accident happened. The cattle car on the rear left the tracks on a Sharp curve at Hawks Bridge a half mile below Eyer Grove. The momentum of the train carried the car a Hundred Yards before it turned a Complete somersault and lauded of its top in the ditch. In the passenger coach ahead were 17 passengers Many of whom were of their Way to attend Tho funeral of mrs. To. W. Bruner at Bloomsburg. This ear was polled from the tracks Aud fell on its Side in Tho ditch hurling the of j cup auts to the lower Side. The combination baggage Aud mail car the Only other one on the train remained partly on the track with its rear end in the ditch. The tender was partly off the rails and the locomotives weight held it on tie track. The Only Means of exit from the passenger coach after Tho Accident was the rear door and the passengers whose injuries had not incapacitated Thorn rushed for this opening. The injured were mrs.

He Deus the former being pinned under a seat. The conductor aided these women out of the wreck. The passenger car was badly wrecked. Every window of the lower Side was broken but not a pane of Glass on the upper Side suffered. Tho seats were All wrenched Loose but curiously the lamps in the car even to the shades were intact. The cattle in the car that caused the wreck of course landed of their Heads when the car overturned but with the exception of a few broken horns not a one was injured. They succeeded in breaking open the door Aud gaining their Freedom but were later Cor rated in a nearby pasture. Several doctors were rushed to the scene and dressed tie injuries. The passengers who were bound for Bloomsburg made the remainder of the trip by Light Deal Here new High school at pottsgrove. Tho contract for the erection of the new High school building of Tho East Chillisquaque school District at pottsgrove was awarded to George w. Keefer of Sudbury when the bids were opened at the office of attorney Edwin Paul last week. The contract Price is $4,850. There were three other bids running up to $5, 500. The new building will be erected on the site of the old one and will be ready for occupancy late this fall according to the terms of the contract. Under modern conditions it is possible to Viive 12,000 three Quarter Inch rivets in ten hours. It Lias been reported in this Section for some Days that the Wilkes Barre Gas amp electric Light company is to take Over All the smaller companies in Luzerne Ami adjoining counties. With that object in View $7,000,000 will to borrowed to finance Tho undertaking. The Pittson West Side Aud Hazleton companies Are included in the Deal. The company at Hama boy City will also surrender its Gas franchise but hold of to its electric Light Plant it is said. It is said by combining All Tho companies operating expenses can be reduced. It is announced that there will be no increase in the Price of Light but rather a reduction in some places. As far As the Columbia Power Light Ami railways company is concerned there is absolutely nothing doing. B. O. Ellis of Bloomsburg general manager for the company yesterday stated that it had nothing to do with his company no overtures having been big sewer the second Ward sewer Extension which was begun last april and for a time was much delayed by a Deposit of Quicksand is at last on the Home stretch having wound its course around from the d. L. Amp w. Station to Beaver Street thence to East Market Street where one Branch extends eastward and the other of which work was in Progress yesterday Westward As far As Railroad Street. At the latter Point work has been abandoned for the present Tho workmen about a dozen in number being transferred to the big sewer for surface water which will have to be completed before that Section of East Market Street is paved. The completion of the second Ward Extension carries the sewer into a very Large area of town that heretofore has not had the Benefit of a sewer. The demand for sewer Extension along with the demand for modern conveniences in the household which is implied was never More apparent than at present. Along with a number of dwellings the second Ward school building will at once connect with the new sewer Extension installing a mod Ern lavatory system similar to the one doing service in the fourth Ward. Beyond the Corner of East Market and Railroad streets where the work was dropped yesterday the sewer will to carried southward to front Street thence Westward to Iron Street along that thoroughfare northward to an Alley Midway Between front Aud East Market streets which it will follow Westward draining All the dwellings of the South Side of East Market Street. All the properties on the North Side of Tho latter Street will be drained into a sewer soon to be carried eastward on Mahoning Street from the Alley at opera House Block where the Extension built last year ends. The completion of the second Ward sewer Extension beyond the Point reached at present will in no Way interfere with the improvement on foot on East Market Street which explains Why the men were taken off the Job yesterday and put to work on the surface sewer. The latter is going to prove a pretty big proposition. As far Hack As any one can remember Tho surface water on East Market Street drained into the canal. The reconstruction of the latter Street makes it necessary to carry off in pipes underground water which heretofore drained Over the surface. The volume of v Ater to provide for is enormous nothing less than a two foot Terra Cotta pipe being adequate the big underground Drain will begin at a Point opposite the Yard of the Danville foundry Aud machine company extending eastward to the Alley at Cooke a court which it will follow to the canal. Ground for Tho surface sewer was broken near the canal yesterday. The pipe an enormous Quantity is already on the ground. The digging where the work was in Progress yesterday was not deep but at certain Points the excavation will have to be carried to a depth of nine feet or Scarlet the article appearing in these columns tuesday which set Forth a plan then on foot to make James Scarlet the nominee for governor on the third party ticket to be formed at Philadelphia today aroused a great Deal of interest throughout this Section especially in Danville the Home of or. Scarlet. The plan however to make or. Scarlet the nominee for governor Bias fallen through. Or. Scarlet was interviewed in this City of his return Home from Harrisburg last evening and he was most emphatic in the declaration that he could not be induced to accept the nomination for governor. He explained that his professional engagements in the state cases As Well As in the United states government work absolutely forbid his candidacy or his entering the Field of politics for any office. In answer to inquiries from the Philadelphia press evening bulletin North american Aud other papers As to whether he would accept a nomination for governor if it were unanimously tendered him by the third party convention or. Scarlet wired that he was not a candidate for the office and could not accept it if tendered him. It is an open secret that or. Scarlet prior to the Republican state convention was approx cited by prominent leaders of that party who begged that he permit them to use his name in connection with the nomination for j governor. There is not the Shadow of a doubt that had or. Scarlet aspired to the governorship he would not have lacked support but would Havo had a powerful following attesting to his Persou Ai popularity Aud the High esteem in which his services to the state Are work woman fights Snake irs. Johnson wife of the proprietor of the cafe at the terminus of the weigh Scales trolley line had a thrilling Battle with a huge Black Snake monday morning while enjoying a pleasure Jaunt along the Pennsylvania Railroad tracks near Tharptown. Mrs. Jobson had left her Home at Tharp town to walk to her husbands place of business. As she stepped of to the path along the Railroad a big Black Snake leaped at her and in n few minutes the woman was struggling desperately with the reptile at tire same time screaming for help. Several men responded to mrs. Jobson a cries Aud with clubs succeeded in diverting the snakes attention from the woman Aud in finally killing it. The Snake measured five feet seven inches in length Ami was four inches in circumference. Mrs. Jobson other than being badly frightened was nor any the worse As the result of her Battle with the sprinkling the baby schanoes of life Are improving the world Over. The water works Are very heavily taxed these mid summer Days to furnish All the water needed for sprinkling streets lawns Aud gardens. Especially at the present time when a drought is prevailing Tho Quantity of water used is much in excess of what is required at other seasons. In spite of lavish sprinkling Many of the lawns about town present a Brown appearance the Sod apparently being dead. Why this should occur if the sprinkling be done at the proper time it is hard to Tell. Obviously Tipiere is nothing like the pure rain from heaven to refresh drooping vegetation. Nearly every Day brings indications of rain but the signs All fail and the drought continues. In conversation with a news reporter yesterday superintendent of the water works p. J. Keefer adverted to the fact that lie has be eur subjected to Adverse criticism for his practice of selecting sunday As a time for installing fire plugs Aud making other repairs that necessitates shutting off tie water from a portion of town. To explained that if persons would Stop to consider they would see the Wisdom of his course. A shutting off of the water he says always leaves the portion of town affected without facilities for fighting fire. When the Industrial plants Are in operation a tire is More Likely to occur than when they Aro Idle. Logically therefore sunday is the time when danger from fire is reduced to a minimum. Or. Keefer Points to the fact that had the water been shut off of East Market Street tuesday As it was of sunday afternoon when repairs were made the lire which broke out at the structural tubing works would have swept the whole Plant. Or. Keefer says he would much rather make repairs on week Days and he Hopes to make it Clear that in doing Sulci work on sunday he is influenced solely by a desire to prevent loss from fire.12th regiment team it.
