Limbert pastor on the Occas Ion was founded on second corinthians 5th chapter and 15th verse a and he died for All that they which live should no longer live unto themselves hut unto him who for their Sakes died Aud Rose again. A Christ died for All. This fact indicates his great love for fallen Man. Christ loved is to the uttermost and thus revealed How aug Nous god is to save us. Christ died for is which implies that he died As our representative giving his life As a Ransom for our redemption thereby becoming what we usually term a your lord a a the word a lord embraces the idea of ownership and authority. He purchased is with his precious blood. The second part of the Sermon mated of the purpose of Christ a death Pennsylvania a an our obligation to him As lord. The Point emphasized was that we should no longer live unto our clues. Men live unto themselves first when they make their own will instead of gods will the ruling principle of their life. Such men do not utter the constant prayer a thy will tie a what Wilt thou have me do a hut live to gratify the flesh the senses to enjoy this temporal life men live unto themselves lieu they make them selves the Center of their Eloit when they do not sufficiently consider the needs of others but always consider themselves first and others last if at All. This characterizes the sinful state of All men by their fallen nature. We Are to live unto tie lord. This is done when we love him in return for his great love Lor us when to live a life of thankfulness unto him for redeeming us when we serve him obeying All his we Are not to serve him however because of fear or of necessity hut to reuder unto the lord a willing cheerful Loving thankful service. The Christian life is preeminently is life of consecrated service. Not our own personal salvation Only is to to taken into consideration. A Christian life is a service unto the lord in his kingdom. We Are under obligation to Render unto him our very Best even that which implies sacrifice. We Are saved to Ever to help others to do Christ a bidding that we May to leaven in the Community that we May he lights in the world Aud the Salt of the Earth. The choir rendered an appropriate Anthem with excellent effect. There was a Large congregation present. Euce both in the Industry and the boroughs ability to handle the proposition.

The present capacity of the Plaut is 125 pairs per Day 20 hands and upwards being employed. The old knitting Mill Ort West Center Street at once suggested itself As of sufficient capacity to accommodate the business. It is dilapidated at present it is True hut it could he put into first class shape at a trifling Cost. Indeed it was figured out that $500 would be the limit of Money that would Mel to he raised. The members were unanimous in the above conclusions and on motion a Resolution was adopted requesting tin Secretary to solicit subscriptions trom our citizens. It was explained that it was the intention of tin management to increase the output As soon As practicable and to add a line of finer shoes.

The Hoard of Trade in turn was Well pleased with the samples of the shoes manufactured which Are mostly of the Hob Nail variety. The Success of the Enterprise now wholly depends upon whether or not the Money can be raised required for the repairs on the old knitting Mill a him now estimated at $600 Sam. A Mccoy Secretary of the Board of Trade pursuant to action taken at the meeting monday night started out yesterday to solicit subscriptions. He met with fairly Good Success hut there is still a considerable margin to cover before the Industry is assured.

After the building is secured what help is needed to put the Industry on its feet will come from local capitalists. One or More parties from Asli Laud practical shoe manufacturers will also take a hand in the Enterprise. There really seems to be an Opi it or Tuu Ity Here to secure a new Industry which in time will Benefit the town very much. It is Worth bearing in mind that it was in the same Humble building in the Flat that the stocking factory now a permanent and important Industry of our town had its birth. The shots which form the product in the present instance have been on the Market for Vears and meet with a steady demand.

The county commissioners and the Borough Council jointly contemplate an improvement in connection with the rebuilding of the River Bridge w hich will a id much to the appearance of things and he of Teal service to the water works. This is nothing less than a Lingo retaining Wall extending fro it below the water works on a Liue with the rear of that Plant to the Wing Wall of the River Bridge. On the River Bauk at the right hand Side of the approach to the Bridge there is a Small space belonging to the county. A portion of this is oct Dpi Day an old shed while the a -. I. In a no Omner is overgrown with thistles. The spot altogether is quite an eyesore and to get rid of it the county commissioners Havo decided to co operate with the Borough in building a High retaining Wall As above described Aud filling up on u level with the Street All Trio space Between the approach to the Bridge and the water works. The county com tuis soders w ill do the work in connection with the rebuilding of the new Wigwall for the Bridge which will be erected to extend Westward along the front of the land owned by the county. The Borough will in All probability take up the work where the county stops and Complete the Wall. Something must be done to protect Trio water works from flood Aud ice. During Trio recent High water the rear Wall was very badly damaged by the bombardment it received from the ice cakes. There is Only one Means of Protection that eau be suggested As at All feasible and that is a retaining Wall which under the circumstances will have to to a pretty big one reaching As High As the windows of the water works. Tilings Are prospering at the clock factory. The Rempe self winding clock is now safely past the experimental stage the factory is equipped with the most modern labor saving machinery in the Market the novel time piece is increasing in popularity the factory is turning out clocks tons full capacity and yet Bias Over three thousand dollars Worth of orders on its books unfilled. Thus within a year past Danville has secured at least one new Industry which is destined to expand Assur line proportions Little dreamed of when the Enterprise was launched. The floor space of 4,000 Square feet taking ill one of half of the Large Brick warehouse on Railroad Street which it was thought would to sufficient has already proven inadequate and the com Pauy has decided to enlarge. The entire warehouse will hereafter be occupied by the clock company. The Western half of the building occupied by the welliver hardware company is being vacated Aud on april 1st, Trumbower amp Werkheiser will begin the work of remodelling that portion of the warehouse into a hilding suitable for a clock factory. A now floor will have to be Laid Aud the Wall broken for a number of windows to correspond with the other half of the Structure. This improvement is in line with the recent installation of automatic machinery which virtually doubled the capacity of the Plaut. Its effect will be to relieve the congested and overcrowded condition of things which holds no work in Many ways and makes it impossible to operate the factory to anything like a Good advantage.

What has become of her. Ali Over the Laud there is a dearth of school mistresses says a Exchange. Even in the Oast where women Are superabundant and the Schoolman Atn was always noted Lor her staying qualities there is a cry tor More teachers. School agencies say that never before were so few w -11-trained women instructors obtainable. All give marriage As Tom cause. Time was says the Chicago chronicle when the schoolmistress was a drug on the matrimonial Market. A woman put Oft As Fin As possible Trio evil Day of entering the school room knowing that it meant a lonely Lito with no Hope of marriage. �?�01.1 maid school teachers was the intensive phrase which labelled her social status. All that is now changed and the school mistress is having her own Way her College education her vacation trips abroad leadership til clubs have made her a most delightful companion fitted for any social Stenti n she has free scope for the development of her talents and is using her opportunities to advantage.

Sin is skilled in household Art so understands How to keep the left i it Saarif try and How to make the purse serve the Best interests of the entire family.

Notwithstanding the depth attained by the Frost it seems to have occupied hut Little time in passing out of the ground. While there Are still a few spots where the ground is Frozen and Many roads that still Are Muddy there Are other places whore the Farmers Are ploughing and highways which Lor Long distances present a Dusty appearance. It is Only on High course that the ground is tit for ploughing. Several Farmers were seen at work in their Fields near Millville Aud Benton tuesday but yesterday seems to have been about the first that any ploughing was done in our own county. One team was seen at work of the Snyder farm Campbelltown Hill during the alte i noon. An i Piso i considerably out of the Ordinary occurred in East Danville monday which threw that other Iso quiet Loi laity into a state of great excited in the affair grew out of a visit of a Crew of Telephone linemen whose business ii was in erect new poles to the Milaca of the old ones standing along the Highway there. At a certain pour. It d alleged the Polis occupy such position As to de Prit the Road i Gal Width 331 feet a it n it i in 1 replacing a pole at that Dace with a a v one the supervisor e. L. White was of hand who in isted that the new pole lion old be planned at another spot further to one Side of the Road. The Foreman of the Crew explained his position which was one that did not permit him to depart from the orders lie had received from the company. A right of Way had been granted in accordance with which the poles had originally been planted. The instruction Trio linemen were under was merely to remove the old pole and insert a new one without presuming to change location. Notwithstanding the supervisor s protests the new pole was planted precisely where the old one stood. Believing that he was serving the township s interest the supervisor ordered the pole Cut Down. The order was carried out by a resident of the township in his employ Aud the objectionable pole was soon out of the Way. The linemen quickly proceeded to replace the pole but this time to get ahead of the supervisor they Strung the wires first and then placed the pole in the ground. They did not believe that he would take the risk involved in causing destruction such As would follow in cutting Down a pole to which wires were attached. To make it still More difficult for the supervisor one of the linemen climbed to the top of the pole and staid there. It was at this Point that the fun really began. The supervisor declared that the pole had to be removed Aud he ordered the Mau who had climbed to the top to comedown. The lineman however kept his Perch while others of the Crew kept up a vigorous protest against further interference. The supervisor carried out his threat Aud ordered a Workman to Cut Down tiie pole. The Man took his axe in hand hut u Siuw Nan me Crew threw themselves against the pole embracing it with their arms. Nothing daunted however the Workman raised his axe aloft and began to Cut into the pole above their Heads. The Crew found themselves in a unpleasant position and it did not take them Long to vacate their Post. Again the supervisor called to tiie Mau of the pole reminding him that if lie remained in his Peich he would do so at his peril. He then gave the word and again the axe began its work. When the pole was half chopped Oft the supervisor again called to the lineman and told him that lie intended to Cut Down Tom pole. The lineman however was As plucky As the supervisor and he held of to his Perch. A few More strokes and the pole was severed. It swung to one Side hut was prevented from falling to the ground by the wires a fact no doubt foreseen by the lineman which encouraged him to remain on the pole. Schools will Good Friday.
