At which the Lull Hoard consisting of and Sech Ler was present. It was decided that the court House 1m tainted Stone color Light and a Lark in Shade the Brick work and the Corners will be Given three Coats the Woodwork cupola Cornice and window frames will receive two Coats. The building will he Given its first coat As soon As or. Armes can get ready for the work. Fine Progress was reported in the repainting of the Iron Bridges through out the county the contract for which work is held by Benjaim cock. Of the sixty Odd Bridges in Montour county forty Are Iron Bridges and these Are being painted Black Graphite paint the same As employed on the River Bridge at this place being employed. According to saturdays report or. Cook had finished fourteen Bridges. The county Bridges Are also Sciug real asked where necessary. While Here and there Only a few planks Are needed at the majority of the places nearly the entire flooring Lias to be renewed.

It was decided on saturday to go on with the work. Deter Dietrich not released. Pursuant to adjournment saturday court convened at to of clock tuesday morning with his Honor judge Vaus and associates f. G. Blee awl Charles a Wagner on the Bench. Only a few of the attorneys showed up and there was no argument. William Kase West moved that Peter Dietrich tried for murder at the last term of court in whose Case the jury disagreed 1m discharged under bail. Judge Evans could not see his Way Clear to Grant an order to the above effect and it Forth his reason at some length. In the first place the attorney for the Commonwealth and the District attorney had not been notified which the court thought should have been done lie fore such an important matter should in considered. An objection too. Might lie urged on a broader ground. While it is True the jury disagreed had it come to an agreement there is no Assurance that the verdict would not have been first degree murder. In that event the court unless some grave error could have Lieen shown would in All probability not have disturbed the verdict. Altogether the Case was such that especially in tie armence of any precedent cited court did not feel like discharging the defendant under bail. A Peter Dietrich will not receive his second trial until september and if As now seems probable he can not he released lie will have a Long and wearisome confinement during thu summer.

Chief Mincemoyer thought that the offenders in this Case were proper ones to make an example of hence the arrest. The men arrested put up thu Pica that they can not pay the Fine Aud the officers Are holding the Case under advisement for a few Days.

Just How the serious injury was inflicted is not known but the Bones of the Maui a left leg Are completely fractured just above tiie ankle. It was a compound f fracture Anil the end of the broken hone protruded from the wound. The Man was found lying in the Alley by some people living near who quickly notified w. A. Shepperson and j. were on their Way to the for the insane. The gentlemen picked up the injured Man Aud in a few minutes succeeded in getting or. Oglesby to the spot. Or.

Kay Cook aged 1� years a son of George Cook of Paxinos was so severely injured in a runaway Accident near that place ing that he will Likely die As a result of the injuries he received. Cook was driving a team of horses from Paxinos toward Shainkin about seven of clock wednesday morning and when nearing the Pennsylvania Railroad a freight train came running along badly frightening both horses. Cook jumped out of the Wagon and tried to quiet the horses by taking hold of the bridles intending to hold them in this manner until the freight train had passed by. The horses Cun j to used to rear and plunge and getting a beyond All control succeeded in break aug away from the Young Man and dashed away at headlong Speed. In some manner Cook became entangled graduates in positions. The excellent reports received from the graduates of the commercial department proves very encouraging to the Borough superintendent Aud faculty of the High school Aud serves to convince the school Hoard Liat it made no mistake when it decided to add Short Nana Type writing melt a studies that go to make up a commercial course. The Remington and the Smith Premier typewriting companies Volunteer to find positions for graduates who learn on their machines Aud for that purpose have established an employment department. It should he stated however that the diploma from our High school or any other institution counts for but Little with the typewriter people until they themselves have examined the graduates. Thus they Are brought to thoroughly understand the qualifications of the Vortig Mau or woman Aud know precisely what they Are recommending. What is especially Gratifying is Liat those of the fifteen graduates of our commercial department who have applied to the Type writer people for assistance in getting positions have not Only passed the examination with credit but have been placed in very desirable positions. Borough superintendent Gordy yesterday received a letter from the employment department of the Smith Premier Type writer company stat ing that or. Arms a graduate who was placed in a position with the Bell Telephone co., 16th and Columbia ave.,Philadelphia, Ata salary of $40 per Mouth is getting along very nicely Aud is giving very Good satisfaction. Report from or. Engel who also Lias been placed in a position Aud others that were examined by the employment department is by encouraging. The above should remove the least doubt As to whether or not our commercial department can give a prac tical business education Aud impart to its graduates a degree of expert Ness in Type writing shorthand etc., Liat will enable them to compete with the graduates of purely business College on school Hoard can not help but reflect that in establishing the commercial department it has done a great Teal for the Young men and women of Danville and has Given them an advantage never before enjoyed by Job printing the office of the american being furnished with a Large assortment of Job letter and fancy Type and Job material generally the publisher announces to the Public that he is prepared at All times to execute in the neatest manner. Job printing of All kinds and description the i time in Bloomsburg incidental to the four county firemen a Couve Tiou was reflected in Dauville yesterday causing a bigger a tir among our people than Lias occurred for some time. It is estimated that at least Oue thousand Danville people West to Bloomsburg by trolley during the Day. Mill Street in the Vicinity of lower Mulberry Street was occupied by crowds during Early the whole Forenoon waiting the arrival of the cars. They came Early hoping to be a Doug the Lucky ones to Liat would secure a seat while Many were left Over each time the cars pulled out and were obliged to bang around the spot until the next car arrived. The stir 011 Mill Street began Early when the Washington fire company with some 30 uniformed men in line Aud led by their drum corps marched Down to the trolley terminus Aud took the 8 20 car. From that time on for a hour or More there was plenty of music in the air. About 8 45 of clock the Friendship fire company with 31 uniformed men in line and led by the baud marched Down Mill Street. About v of clock they were joined at the trolley terminus by the Goodwill boys with some 20 men in line nicely uniformed Aud led by the p. U. S. Of a. Drum corps. A special open car to return to Danville at 10 30 of clock last night bad been chartered by the Friendship boys Aud they All bad Good seats with plenty of room. The Goodwill boys who expected to take the regular w 10 car following immediately after the special were not so fortunate As they were entirely crowded off the car but men women Aud children who did not wait for the car to Stop but began to jump on soon after it turned the Mill Street Corner. Before the fire men could get of Board the car was practically full and before it left for Bloomsburg the car was packed every Inch of room in the aisle and on the platforms being occupied. The firemen who were crowded out were consoled with the Assurance that another car was lying of the siding at Pauless Woods Aud that this would be sent Down to Danville immediately to take care of the overflow. With this exception tie cars ran of schedule but instead of Oue car on Early All the trips there were two Ville people Bloomsburg. Bad been carried to Danville wins another game. Danville and Bloomsburg crossed bats at Bloomsburg again yesterday Aud Victory once More perched of the moxie Banner.
