Many i sous Are heard to remark upon the condition of the canal in the Vicinity a of the Mill Street Culvert which with the Advent of warm weather has become very offensive Aud conducive to anything else than Good health. It seems that such a thing As keeping the ditch Cleau is out of the pm Tsiou and about All that remains to be done is to Drain off As much of the objectionable matter As Pussie and to disinfect the Bottom in some Way. Several of our citizen it discussing the matter yest Eulav agreed that the use of disinfectants was the Best Solu Ion of the problem and named several that might be applied among them being quicklime. The question that naturally suggests itself is Why water can not be kept out of the canal. If this were accomplishing everything else would to easy. During heavy Rains of course the Bottom might be flooded but a deep ditch rightly coi Truc Teil would carry off All the water Ami the canal would be dry tin greater part of thu time. Unless something like this is Dono it will be Only a Tew weeks until to have mosquitoes by the million As last summer a it say nothing of tin other ways in which the stagnant old ditch May be a detriment. State health commissioner Dixon in treating on Good sanitation recently strongly urged the necessity of getting rial of swam Quot wherever they exist pointing out their deadly effects. What he would have to say about our old canal if he could see it in its True Light hardly admits of any conjecture. Rev. chosen president. Rev. A.

Benefits of paving. One of our exchanges quotes a prominent business Man of sub urn As having said a our streets was the making of this Sunbury used to have the reputation of being one of the dirtiest towns in the state and now it is one of the a leanest and most up to Date. Every year the Borough paves one or two squares Ami now they Are getting bricked streets of the outskirts. The first paving was put Down on Market Street fourteen years it is practically As Good As when first constructed without costing anything for repairs. Lii was the testimony of an unbiased citizen who had i a a Rieu ced the Bee fits accruing from permanent Street improve inputs both to a the individual property owner Aud to thu Community. In no town in Central Pennsylvania has then been a More marked increase in real estate values than in Sunbury and Lur Good streets Are largely responsible. New k. T.

A Man appeared in this City yesterday and began the work of soliciting Money for the salvation army. What Success he met with is Uncertain but from now on in is Likely to lie embarrassed by tie fact that he tallies with the description Given of a salvation army worker in Berwick who is regarded As an impostor. The stranger working Here is entitled to the Benefit of doubt and it is not impossible that he May he Able to make a sat Sisfa Etory explanation. The a blooms Hurt daily a of last evening stated that a stranger in tie garb of a salvation army worker appeared in Bloomsburg Berwick and other places in this Vicinity last week ail of a claim that his organization was about to resume work in this Section proceeded to solicit Money. He stated that the army would establish a Barracks at Berwick the a a lining summer. He pointed out the Good work a Lone by the army in Berwick in 19 14-5 and on the strength of his representations lie is alleged to have raised about one Hundred dollars. The a a daily goes on to say it now appears that the Man was a Fakir at least he is not working us Der the authority of the regular salvation army organization and is not known to them. William o. Hunter of Philadelphia general Secretary of the salvation army was sent a clipping from the Berwick Enterprise referring to the collection being made at that place. Or. Hunter now sends word that in knows no such person the Man was never sent out by the organization Aud the army had no intention of resuming work in this Section in the near future. A the Man who appeared in Danville soliciting wore a salvation army garb and corresponded to the description of the person soliciting Money in Bloomsburg aug a Berwick Aud alluded to in the alive paragraph. The description printed in the Bloomsburg daily is As t Ollow it a a tall Man with dark hair and Mustache of uncommon intelligence Aud a Good talker although having a pronounced Germau the stranger made at least a partial canvass of our business Street. So far As could be determined he did not succeed in getting any Money. Neither could he be located Here last evening although the police in View of the above coincidence were anxious to have a interview with him. Death of mrs. Hugh Pursel.

Annie ii. Williams administer matrix. The rite of confirmation was administered to a class of Nineteen Hurt. Rev. James h. Darlington. D., Bishop of Harrisburg at Christ episcopal Church tuesday. A Large congregation was present. There was Evensong at 7 30 after which followed confirmation which in turn was followed with a Sermon by the Bishop. Bishop Darlington is a forceful eloquent Aud logical speaker. He took As his text colossians 1 a 18 a the Church his he dwelt upon the uniform methods employed by some of tin churches to bring the people to god which seem to have adults particularly in View the revival services being Sha Jed to accommodate grown up persons. The old Way of the Church he said is to take up the child train it in tie Way it should go so that when it is old it will not depart from it. He invoked the Blessing of god on All methods of evangelization whether adults or children Are sought but he insisted that the regular the easiest Aud the Best method is to take the child Start it right and keep it right. People say the episcopal Church is the easiest Church to join Aud the Bishop asserted that such is the Case. He dwelt upon the simple requirements needed and said that the Church presumes that the child is gods child. Bishop Darlington does not believe in death bed conversions Aud he expressed himself in positive terms. He does not doubt that instantaneous conversions have occurred hut they did not take place on the death bed when physical Aud mental Powers Are waning when the body is racked by pain Ami the intellect is clouded by drugs. In the matter of service lie does not believe in the Mere a meeting House idea where in seeking heaven Only such help can come As men Ami women receive from each other. He commended the churchly idea. The Church is heaven seeking men the one society founded by god. The higher can reach the lower but the lower can not reach the higher. He deplored the tendency of the age to sneer at the Bible to question its divinity. It came Down from heaven As the Church Lias done. The Church stands for a divine Day. Under the pretence of making All Days holy men succeed in making unduly things seem holy. The Church has a divine ministry a ministry which represents god not the people. The Church s idea is not the idea of sacrifice but of sacrament. The idea is not to give up everything that makes life Beautiful. God does not believe in suffering but in Good news. Sacrifice will not Avail no Man can save himself. Christ must be our great sacrifice. Spiritualism. Ltd Winil feet it Oiin him viewed by the w Olti of Sei enee. Spiritualism is the successor of the mediaeval occultism and of the older magic. Today science without accepting its manifestations studies them and in the a troubled Waters almost All the facts upon which the new metaphysics is founded have been fished up. Like magnetism it has drawn the attention of physicians the the Phenomena of induced sleep and Lias Given Many a of tin data for the study of hypnosis and Suggs Stion. The mediums who believe like the ancient Pytho Nesses. That they Are possessed by foreign spirits have served for the study of the a Hauge of personality mud telepathy. And it has shown that the prodigies diabolic and divine recorded in All Early religious were not so fabulous As the critical fancied. At All events science admits that there is a Force Call it psychic As Crookes does be urls with Baretz vital with Bara Duc or the Odie Force of Rel Chebrach a a Force which can be measured and described which leaves its Mark of tin photographic plate which emanates from every living being which acts at a distance which saves or destroys. Plate knew it. Great wizards like Cardan made use of it. The charlatans Elk a Cagliostro blundered upon it. The scientists have the last Magazine. At the so and Ali court.
