Established in 1855.nil his the a Case of Small pox develops at the state Hospital. A Case of Small pox developed at the state Hospital for the insane yesterday. The news which was not known beyond a few until late yesterday afternoon flew Over the town like wild fire causing everywhere excite ment and More or less alarm. The american however after a full investigation is glad to assure its readers that under the circumstances there is Little cause for fearing a general outbreak of the disease. Indeed it is doubtful whether the disease will extend beyond the one Case reported. With the exception of a few of the very infirm the thousand or More patients in the institution As Well As the whole corps of attendants have been successfully vaccinated. Even the single victim of the disease underwent vaccination As a result of which the Small pox is in a very mild form. The patients recovery would seem to be assured. How Small pox happened to work its Way into tin institution is a mystery that no one can solve. Since the outbreak of the disease in this Vicinity last fall every possible precaution has been taken at the Hospital. From that time until about the first of March when All danger seemed past a effective quarantine was maintained. No visiting was allowed and in the Case of All new patients the closest scrutiny was maintained and no one admitted to the institution for treatment who could not show a clean Hill of health. Even after the quarantine was raised general visiting was not allowed Only those who had friends under treatment then being permitted to enter the Hospital. The patient stricken is a male confined in the 11-th Ward. He is a epileptic confined to his bed at times but generally Able to take exercise about the grounds with the Oiler patients. How he contracted tin disease is doubly puzzling in View of the facts that no friends have called to see him and that he Lias received no mail matter of any kind. Among the precautions taken last fall was the erection of a isolated Hospital at a Safe distance from the institution. Yesterday the building was put to use. As soon As the disease was diagnosed As probably smallpox the patient was removed from the main building to the Little Hospital in the Field. He will there be under tinware of r03 Rishel As an attendant and of or. Smith As a physician. Yesterday a Small building near by was hastily erected for the accommodation of or. Smith and both physician and attendant will remain on the spot. There will he no communication w whatever. Food and other things needed will be carried out from the main building and placed on a convenient spot where later those on duty at the Small pox Hospital will go and get them. Beginning with a rigid quarantine will he established at the Hospital. Everything will he closed Down tight.

Peter Keller and Harry Ludlow have been employed As engineers. Or. Mallou states that the Plant from the Start will be run on double turn with the probability that in a Short time it will be put on three turns.

Unquestionably one of the most edifying and entertaining talks on Japan and missionary Effort in that far off country that has Ever been heard in this City was delivered in Shiloh reformed Church tuesday night by miss Lena Zurfluh a returned missionary enjoying a furlough in her native land. Miss Zurfluh comes with a message almost direct from tie land of Buddha. In a tone of deep commiseration she described the spiritual needs of tie japanese and their Blind Devotion to a false religion. They Are taught to believe that at death the souls of the departed pass from one body or condition into another. There is nothing in their religion to meet the yearnings of the soul there Are 110 assurances for the future. The condition of the people is one of great mental unrest they Are in constant anxiety concerning the welfare of the souls of their loved ones who Are dead fearing that they May litre passed into the body of some one of the lower animals. Not Only at Day hut during the darkness of tie night they May he found wandering wearily around in search of their idols praying for rest for peace of mind and finding it not. Miss Zurfluh during her lecture wore the full dress of the native japanese women which added very much to the interest of tie lecture and enabled her to illustrate topics that related to dress. She had with her a variety of articles that enter into the daily lives of the people including Odd contrivances for foot Wear and a Pillow which oddly enough is made of Wood yet upon which the japanese rests and finds sleep at night. The japanese know nothing of tie luxury of Beds or chairs. They sit upon the floor and at Uig lit sleep upon Mats. The missionaries on entering the country Are obliged to take their Beds with them. The customs Are All Odd. At marriage tie girls Blacken their Teutli and Wear their hair in a manner Peculiar to their married station. Tie Little infants Are strapped upon the backs of the older children of the family. The Little natives As they attended tie Mission sunday school were always burdened in this Way by to Weir baby Brothers and Sisters. Tie pleasant Little Story circulated in civilized countries to the effect that japanese children do not cry the speaker said is a piece of fiction. She could Bear witness to tie fact that they a a howl. It is at sunday school where the babes strapped to the backs of to Weir Brothers and Sisters probably protest the loudest. The noise they create makes it at times almost impossible to proceed with the lesson. Miss Zurfluh said that during the last year and a half there has been a great spiritual Awakening in Japan. Fifteen years ago the ambition of tie natives was to acquire the manners and customs of the a a foreigners As tin missionaries were called. Thus when a Parent brought his daughter to the missionaries lie wanted her to he taught to sleep upon a bed to sit upon a chair and to eat with a knife and Fork. The time has now come when they begin to realize that the exterior life is not All and that the accomplishments of civilization count for Little without having under them the refining and elevating influences of a Christian character. A girls school taught by the missionaries which accommodated seventy pupils and last year graduated Twenty seven some time before miss Hurt huh s departure burned to the ground Caus aug a interruption in the work which is much deplored alike by the missionaries Aud the natives. On the whole the speaker is much encouraged with the result of missionary work in Japan. Notwithstanding tie inclement weather there was a Good sized congregation present who listened with rapt interest to the speakers remarks. Alfred Diehl president of the missionary society of Shiloh reformed Church presented a report. Miss Amanda share Delegate to the recent missionary convention held at Hazleton also presented her report. Both reports wore quite encouraging revealing a degree of interest in missionary work which is quite in keeping with the spirit of the time. Birthday celebrated.

Or William Stevens of Williamsport domes to grief. It is not often of late that a peddle attempts to ply his vocation in Danville hut now Aud then one attempts it and conies to grief. Our Borough fathers having in View the Protection of our local merchants who pay rent and help to support the municipality enacted a Borough ordinance requiring paddlers to pay a License tax of $.1 per Day except in such cases where the goods Are of their own manufacture or Are bought of our Home merchants. Before the enactment of this ordinance peddling was carried on extensively in Danville. The peddle generally from some other town who was not burdened with the expense of rent Aud the like found it an easy matter to undersell our regular dealers whose Trade suffered very much in consequence. Tie last person who had the temerity to attempt peddling in Dauville without a License was an individual hailing from Williamsport who gave his name As William Stevens. His grip sack contained spoons and watches besides a liniment of the pedal Era Sowu manufacture represented As a cure for a variety of ailments. Officer Voris detected the fellow Aud took him into custody. The hearing was held before Justice Bare last even aug.

Tuesday Coal and Iron policemen Pursley and Simmons of tie p. Amp r. Railway armed with a warrant made a search of several houses in the third Ward. On the premises of Jacob Engle Hemlock Street a number of valves such As those stolen were found. Engle who is a junk dealer said he had bought these some of them As late As last week. He was unable however to state of whom he had purchased the brass. Engle was arrested under the act of Hilt which is calculated to reduce the stealing of brass to the minimum. Its provisions oblige every junk dealer to keep a record of All brass bought showing the Date and of whom it was purchased together with the number of pounds Aud tie Price paid per Pound.
