The Resolution adopted by the Board of health was Lead by tin Secretary \ discussion followed ill which . Montgomery Ami Dougherty took exceptions to the Resolution. They both understood that the sewer was being constructed for the Benefit of tin Public to take care of just such nuisances As grew out of the Slaughter houses. Besides the buildings had be. Ii permitted to remain there for Many years and they did not think it was just to the butchers to oblige them to remove out of the Borough just at the to in a when a sewer was being const i acted. The president explained that in his opinion the sewer could not he used to carry off such refuse As came from the Slaughter houses to say nothing of the pig pens w hich were maintained in connection with them.

The Cave in occurred about 8 of clock at a Point just above the River Hank where the ground had been excavated to tie depth of twelve or thirteen feet. Thomas Owens a Man of about Middle lit was at work at the Bottom of the narrow Trench Between him and the River Bank at a still deeper Point Joseph Birks was at work. Cribbing had not been inserted at that the Timber was being prepared and in a Short time would have been placed in position. Without a moments warning the Cave in occurred a Large portion of the Hank from the East Side of the Trench breaking Oft and rolling in up on Owens. The Man was completely engulfed although his head was Light a covered. Or. Birks unmindful of his own peril from further Eav ins flew to his companion s Rescue. With his hands lie dug away the Sand Suhi a i a fitly to uncover tin Many a head the poor fellow was in a stooping position Licu struck he tin heavy mass of Earth and was pressed to the Bottom of the Trench in a cramped and most uncomfortable position. His head was no sooner uncovered than he was sized with a convulsion which made it exceedingly difficult to liberate him most of the workmen we Ere afraid to go near. Or Birks however stuck to the Man and worked like a hero in shovelling away the Sand. He was assisted by water commissioner Edward Gorman who As soon As in took in the situation leaped into the sewer to help. The Man was finally extricated and carried out of the Trench still in the agony of convulsions it was nearly half an hour before in recovered. Owens beyond his terrible fright and the attack it super induced it seems sustained no injury. Edward Gorman while assisting at tin Rescue was struck on the Arm and badly bruised by a Large mass of Earth which caved in upon shocking Accident. William Mitchell Spruce Street met with a shocking Accident on saturday afternoon nearly severing his wrist with an axe. He was cutting kindling when the Accident occurred. With his left hand lie was holding a chunk of Wood on the chopping Block with his right he was plying tie axe when it struck a knot which caused it to glance. The keen Blade sunk deep into tin wrist of the left Arm laying the joint opon cutting tin smaller hone and severing tin Tendon and Cap ular ligament. Drs. Thompson and Shultz were called who quickly responded. It was necessary to place the injured Man under tin influence of chloroform when the physicians sewed the tendons capsular ligament and tin sever cd skin and tissue together. Whether the Man will Ever have much use of his left hand remains to he seen. The injury is considered a very serious one and nothing remains hut to hop. For the Best. The injured Man is a rougher at the Reading Iron works. Ii a a is Vry popular with his fellow employees and others and receives a Good Deal of sympathy. 1i� will by Laid up for a Long the school Board for 1903-1, organized on june i held its first regular meeting monday night.

Miss Lizzie Vastine of South Danville returned Home from Carlisle last a team of runaway horses belonging to Erwin Hunter were guilty of an Odd Freak yesterday morning which resulted in the death of one and injury to the other. The team driven by Harry Moyer were employed in hauling Straw for the circus from the cars of the latter at the p. Amp r. Station to South Danville. They escaped from the Driver at the station. Owing to the excitement incident to tin circus and the fact that the horses were of a restive disposition or. Moyer while packing the Straw on the rear end of the wag on took the precaution to keep the i lines within reach. A the very thing he dreaded occurred the horses took fright at the switch engine and started to run. He instantly grabbed tin lines hut the team gave a sudden Spring which jerked him Oft tin Wagon. The horses dashed Down Railroad Street at a mad Gallop. They approached the crossing just As the 9 Ufi passenger train came along. Everyone expected to see them turn to the right or left but instead the horses frantic in their fright dashed into the passenger train just at that moment on the crossing. They stick the car next to the rear one the end of the Tongue evidently piercing one of the windows. Tie scene was thrilling in the extreme. There was a crash of breaking Glass As the Tongue struck each window of the moving train in succession one of the horses fell dying alongside the track while the other bore evidence of being seriously injured. The passengers in the two rear cars were thrown into a dreadful panic by the Accident. A couple were Cut by the flying Glass but none seriously injured. Tie horse killed in longed to or. Hunter s team of Sorrels and was a valuable animal. He was evidently killed by one end of the broken Wagon Tongue which pierced Bis breast. The other horse was Able to walk to tin livery stable and although injured More or less seriously it is thought lie will recover. The Driver in being thrown out of the Wagon at the station struck the platform and was badly bruised. Two of Iii fingers yesterday wore thought to in needs More water. It possible the Public Fountain should be fed with a Little stronger Stream than it receives at present. As it is since the Advent of summer conditions under the constant demand for water the big howl is empty nearly one half of the time during the hottest part of hie Day and Many a thirsty horse is obliged to reluctantly turn away from tin Fountain before his to list has been fully quenched. The time of year has arrived when the water is rather too warm for drink ing and it May not be much sought after by human beings but there is not a horse which drags his Burden up and Down the Street but knows of the Fountain and if Given his Way when thirsty will seek its refreshing Waters. Even the dogs for which Especial provisions have been made visit the Fountain and it seems to be their regular place of drinking. Dogs of All Breeds and sizes May be seen there during the Day As frequently As the horses lapping the water from tin Little bowls placed along Side of the Fountain m a tin ground where even the smallest canine can reach them. The Fountain indeed is quite an institution and it fills a great want. All that is needed is a Little More water in order that it May fulfil in the fullest the Beneficent Mission fur which it was of Joseph Hunter. Joseph Hunter whose death occurred on sunday was buried yesterday afternoon interment taking place in it. Vernon cemetery. Tin services were conducted by Rev. L. 15. Twirled i.

Some routine work was disposed of after which the members settled Down to a general talk on matters relating to the Good of the municipality. Or. Foster introduced the topic of a trolley line Between hero and Bloomsburg which has not been talked of much lately. I asked if any one was posted As to tin exact status of affairs relating to the Danville and Bloomsburg trolley company which is negotiating for flu right of Way Between the two towns. He said in thought it was about time that the company renewed its activity to get through to Danville and that the project affords the Board of Trade a Fine Opportunity to show what it can do for the town by co operating with the promoters of the line. Or. Goeser stated that he had been informed by some people closely in touch with the project that the matter would be taken up by tin Eom Pauy again in a Short time with the probability that the line would be pushed through. Meanwhile the Board of Trade will study the situation very closely to see whether it can not do something to assist the Enterprise. The following Hills were ordered paid a. H.

These Are tin men who for the most part have Dull seasons. As a fact they have few seasons that Are not More or less Dull. The non advertiser fails to get the Cream of and business at any time.

Job printing of a kinds and description still another Danville May have the Benefit of Vry m arly a full system of sewerage and that too without the expenditure of any More Money than was at first designed to cover the Cost of severing blizzard s run. The trustees of the Hospital for the insane upon fully investigating Tho subject have become a Little dubious As to whether or not there is any system for disposing of sewage on the Hospital grounds that coaids he employed which would prov wholly efficacious and remove All danger of polluting the River. The trustees of the Hospital rather have come to favour the construction of a sewer of a Large scale which will connect with the River at a Safe Point below the intake of the Borough water works. To carry this out it would of course he no Dossary to come through Danville. The matter was brought up at the last meeting of Council and it was explained that the trustees desired to make a proposition to Council looking to the construction of a sewer through the Borough. Up to that time however no further action had been taken than to determine How such a proposition would be received by Council. The matter therefore was discussed at considerable length. No opposition developed assuming of course that the Hospital would he willing to give an equivalent for the right of passing through tin town. They All agreed that Council could not Grant such a privilege for anything less Thau the right of connecting with the Hospital sewer any where along its course which right so far As the Hospital is concerned should he free of charge. The plans at present have not assumed any definite form. Some of the trustees favored connecting with the sewer near its source of blizzard s run. This was rejected As wholly irn practicable in the premises. The consensus of opium of seemed to he that the Only Point a which connection could hot made would lie near the old Aqueduct Between which a a out and the Riv a the pipe ordered and being it Unk is of sufficient capacity to carry Oft the combined sewage of blizzard s run and the Hospital for the insane. This would enable the Hospital to Lay its pipe in a direct line probably in the Bottom of the canal and would give a Large portion of our Borough the Benefit of sewerage which otherwise for Many years to come might not enjoy that roil swindlers. Allow easy some people can be Cozene out of their hard arned shekels by the Gullible facetious Tiess of tin Slick tongued lightning Rod swindlers is again being demonstrated in this Vicinity. It seems that the favorite manner in which the Farmers love to he properly Gold bricked is at the Tidei and merciful bands of a Well dressed stranger who with his easy flow of words and glittering something for nothing offer induce them to place their names upon All kinds of contracts which inevitably turn out to he a note for a Large amount of Money. Friday morning a Well dressed pair of these simplifying the Money without work question men approached several Farmers living below Catawissa with one of their schemes hut luckily the Farmers were Wise and they were not successful. The proposition is that they Are putting up lightning rods free to Farmers living five or six Miles apart just for an advertisement for their firm hut asking the Farmer to pay three or four dollars to help meet the sex Peuse of putting them up of course the agreement turns out to he a note for a goodly sum of the hard earned Cash which must he paid to or get the Price easy. This is Only the Ito inning As the swindlers arc moving from other parts of the state where they have reaped a Rich Harvest particularly in Wayne county where it is said the Farmers were swindled out of thousands of dollars by a pair of these easy livers who finding it too hot for them were forced to seek the Day at Sha Okiu.
