As the River continues to fall the trials and tribulations of those who have to rely upon the ferry increase. Every Day seems to in aug some new vexation and should the River Diop much below its present level it is difficult to see How the hat boat Cau be operator so As to be of much service to the Public. A round trip on the ferry this week is Likely to consume anything from half an hour to nearly an hour. On one or More occasions the Flat heavily loaded was delayed by striking a big Rook lying in its course about mid Stream. The principal trouble lies at the landings where Tho shallow water will not permit the boat to get into Shore. As much trouble As anywhere is experienced at the Landing on the Danville Sido where Tho Flat boat Whon empty can approach reasonably near Shore but As soon As loaded becomes aground. A Long delay was occasioned in this Way last evening when the ferry was starting on its trip to catch the 5 50 Pennsylvania train. The ferryman assisted by several Able to lied teamsters pried and togged at the boat for nearly Twenty minutes b fore it could be dislodged. Presses on the boat who desired to a Torii tin to in naturally became very n Voos at the South Side the ferry can not get into Shore within Over a Hundred feet. The heavily loaded wagons have a difficult time in fording Tho River Between the boat and Shore while foot passengers Are Obi god to walk a dizzy Plank Over the Long stretch to tween Tho floating platform at the ferry and dry ground on Shore. It appears that the ferries at neighbouring towns have about the same difficulties to contend with that obtain hero. There Are Many curious experiences and now and Theu a narrow is Cai get from fatality. William Enterline the Telegraph operator at Nescopeck who was at South Danville yesterday witnessed a curious affair at Berwick yesterday morning. A Milkman of Nescopeck by the name of c. A. Fentermacher was trying to get across the River to Berwick. There were a Large number of vehicles ahead of him at the ferry and lie decided to try and Ford the River. He was driving two horses Attao Hod to a Large Wagon which contained eight or ten boxes filled wit i milk bottles. He entered the water a Short distance above the old Bridge site and was just passing a Point called the Black Rock when the horses stepped into a deep Hole Aud were compelled to swim. The Box became unfastened from the Wagon Aud floated off Down the River carrying or. Fenstermac Lier with it. The horses so ceded in swimming to the Shore while the unfortunate Milkman was caught near the Bridge by several parties in a boat. Protesting against valuation. Upwards of seventy residents of Rush township. Gearhart township and Riverside Boroug i who object to the valuation placed upon to Weir properties West to Sunbury yesterday to appear before theol duty commissioners who were sitting As a Board of revision.

In and Gearhart townships citizens meetings Hail been held for the purposed protesting against the excessive valuation and making a Jaugu meets to Lay the matter before the county Commissi Eudeis. The trip to Sudbury yesterday was the result Tho county commissioners did nothing More yesterday than to hear the appeals and just what May be accomplished by the protest w ill develop later.

Or. Frank Crowther. Exalted ruler. Joseph e. Stricker Harold e. Pickersgill Henry Mccullough. Coli Mitton. Mullen Herrington. Miss Margaret Herrington Aud John b. Mullen of this City were United in Matrimony yesterday. The nuptial knot was tied by Rev. Father m. I. O Reilly in St. Joseph s Catholic Church at 11 80 a. Ill.

The newly wedded couple left of the 12 15 Pennsylvania train for Blossburg the Home of the Bride. The residents of the lower end of tie Borough who petitioned Cou Oil for a new Bridge Over Mahoning Creek at Chestnut Street have not As yet been Given Mutoli encouragement. The committee of Street and Bridges to which the petition was referred has not yet made a full report Atho ngh some of the members have expressed themselves in a Way to indicate that they do not Lii of the plan to use one of the canal Bridges at that Point at All practicable Aud that they regard the proposition on the whole As too big for the town to tackle at the present time. Some of the petitioners however Aro not willing that the agitation shall cease and they Are ready to make another suggestion. Since the use of the canal Bridge which they thought would fill Tho Bill has been disapproved of they have turned to the two spans of the River Bridge which remain As affording All the Timber needed to Bridge Mahoning Creek and Meadow Between West Mahoning Creek Aud the cinder tip. The two spans of course would be regarded As property belonging to the county but thobe who favor the use of it in the Borough get Over this difficulty very easily by suggesting that Council Trade off one of its disused canal Bridges for what remains of the River Bridge. The View is taken that tiie county commissioners would very readily accede to this As the Bridge Timber will prove of doubtful Utility to them while the canal Bridge could be used anywhere in spanning the smaller streams of the county and would be sure to obviate the expenditure of a Large sum of Money for a new Bridge. It remains to be seen whether Council will Ever be called upon to take Fotiou on these suggestions but just at present they find favor with a Good Many people and figure extensively in daily Converse. Laying pipe in the River. Superintendent p. J. Keefer has resumed work on the sewer Aud unless hindered by High water it will be the matter of ouly a few Days until the heavy Iron pipe is Laid in the Riv Orand the sewer carried to completion. The work which remains to be done is probably the most difficult part of the Silione sewer proposition. The water is a Factor which will have to be reckoned with until the Job is completed. The Only Way the pipe can be Laid in the River will be by building coffer dams. The Iron pipe will extend ont into the Stream for a distance of two Hundred and fifty six feet. The pipe is Twenty four inches in diameter and each joint is sixteen feet Long. It therefore proves much More difficult to handle than the Short joints of Terra Cotta pipe of the same diameter used in the Creek. A coffer dam was being erected yesterday to shut off the water from one probably one third of the dist Auoe to be covered with the pipe. The traction engine and centrifugal pump belonging to the Borough have been installed below the River Bank at the Waters Edge for the purpose of keeping Down the water while the pipe is being Laid. Puddles win Silver our. The Iron moulders picnic on saturday was a file Success. The weather conditions were All that could be desired Aud a Large crowd visited the Park. During the afternoon interest mainly entered in the tug of War Between the Iron moulders Aud the puddles of the Reading Iron works which was to decide the Custodianship of the Silver cup. The contest was pulled off on Tho fair ground. Thomas traitor and w. A. Shepperson were selected As judges. W. A. manager of Tho stove works was made referee. The rope used was about thirty feet Long. Niue Neu were placed of each Side and then the tug began. It was a splendid test of strength and Well Worth with Esbig. The Light was a Long Aud hard one before the puddles succeeded in Palling the Iron moulders Over the line. The decision was rendered in favor of the puddles who consequently receive the Silver our which the Iron moulders have held for ten years past. Job printing the office of the american i being furnished with a Largo 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 relating to the postal Laws there Are irregularities of one sort creeping into the use of the mails which will have to be avoided or a whole lot of people May get into trouble. This violation according to postmaster harder is the Inabit a Good Many people have of enclosing writing in packages which Are paid for to cording to second third or fourth class rates. The Post office department begins to suspect that the Rule Wiloh forbids this is being observed More in the breach than in the Observance. It is a violation which can not be tolerated Aud postmaster harder says it would not be at All surprising if in a Sciort time there would be wholesale exposures which of course Means wholesale arrests. There Are Many persons who have never taken the pains to Post themselves on the postal Laws. To Sooh the following Brief explanation will be found invaluable. Mail matter is divided into first second third Aud fourth classes each with its own rate of postage. The first class As is Well known covers correspondence such As letters. The second class takes in newspapers Aud regular publications. The third class includes photographs along with printed matter such As circulars Etc. The fourth class takes in such articles As Are ranked with merchandise. The Law specifically provides that mail matter containing any writing or printing in addition to the original matter shall not be admitted to the mails nor delivered except upon payment of postage for matter of first class. Adv person who shall conceal or enclose any matter of a higher class in that of a lower class and Deposit tie same for conveyance by mail at a less rate than would be charged for both such higher and lower class matter shall for every such offence be liable to a penalty of ten dollars.
