Gearhart South Danville transacted Busine s in Sunbury yester Dav. He is now a mining King. Readers of metropolitan newspapers a luring tin past few a lays have been regaled by stories relating to an action for alleged breach of Promise brought against Meyer Guggenheim of new York a Multi millionaire. The defendant is 74 years of age and is known As the a mining King of tin Western he is at the head of the Guggenheim exploration company which has a capital of $100,000,000. What invests the aged defendant in the breach of Promise suit with a local Inton St is the fact that in his humbler Days he used to come to Danville and that one of Danville a residents Simon Dreifuss who conducted a store in the building at present occupied by j. H Fry later became a partner of Guggenheim 111 Philadelphia and a amassed great wealth. Our townsman Heury l Gross knew Guggenheim Well. During tin 50�?Ts he used to drive to Danville regularly peddling spices and the like. With Dreifuss As partner in Philadelphia he made a great Deal of 111011 a 111 my picturing stove polish and Lye Ali or receives a Stream of water at a pressure of about 140 pounds and discharges it with great Force against an oxidized Silver Point. Thus the air of the room is forced through minute globules of water millions in number it is washed of All its impurities Revivi fied in transit through the body of the Humidifier by being deprived of some of its carbonic acid Gas while the atmospheric electricity is destroyed. A change of tempt rat lire is effected by disposing cold water during tie summer and water warm d by steam during the Winter. Kory cubic foot of air in the room is Douce every half hour. The beneficial effects of pure air where so Many people Are employed can not be overestimated. Or. Hartman is a Quito elated Over the Success achieved in this particular alone. Absolutely pure water is obtained the silk Mill through the Agency of a Philadelphia water purifier and filter Plant. By this process the water is made chemically pure and resembles a list lied water. A with the file a a Plant is connected a reagent chamber through which chemicals Are fed to precipitate All minerals in the water. Or. Hartman uses this water not Only in connection with his silk Baths which require pure soft water but also 12,000 Gallons daily As boiler fee l. Its purity hero is Well demonstrated. Where previously or. Hartman a boilers were thickly encrusted with scale they Are now after trial found to a be clean without any sign of encrustation. The natural impurity of the water with tie consequent formation of scale in the boiler adds very much to the Cost of manufacture owing to the increased Quantity of Coal required in order to keep up steam. At Many places according to the scale in the boilers this waste is ten to Twenty per Cut. Trio value of any process therefore which will eliminate the Mineral from the water is Well demonstrated. As in the Case of pure air or. Hartman is the first in this Section to employ purified water for purposes especially for boiler teed. Mail Wagon in runaway. Jesse Starzel Carrier of Rural tree delivery rout no. 7, met with a runaway yesterday As tie result of which his horse was badly Cut his mail Wagon broken and he was obliged to walk some three Miles. About the hour of noon when of the Shamokin Road at the farthest Point from Danville or. Startzel As is his custom stopped to feed his horse and in order that the animal might eat without any hindrance he removed the bridle. He was just in the Ai t of replacing the bridle when the horse gave a Spring and escaping dashed Over a Steep embankment and galloped out Over the country roads at a rate which soon left the mail Carrier far in the rear. At Logan run the frantic horse plunged into a Stone pile on tin Martz farm. He sustained a bad fall and was Cut in nearly every part of Bis body by the Sharp stones although not seriously injured. The Wagon Here fell Over upside Down and was pretty badly damaged about the top although a lib it running gear remained intact. The horse Here was easily caught and kept under control until or. Startzel arrived. The mail matter was found All Only thing lost out of the Wagon being the Cushion which a the owner recovered while following up the horse. Or. Wartzel was Able to Complete his delivery of mail although he was delayed and did not Roach Danville until about 3 30 of clock. He thinks the horse was stung by an insect which caused him to indulge in his foolish caper. 121 is Iron moulders picnic. Iron moulders Union.
