One or two things have occurred in con cation with the project to erect a soldiers Monument in Montour county. Which place it on a new footing Ami would seem to insure Success. As is Well known subscriptions to the soldiers Monument fund have Lieen received during a number of years the total of the amounts subscribed being by no Means insignificant. No sustained nor systematic Effort however was Ever put Forth by the canvassers and comparatively few people were Ever called upon. Nie Are informed by Hon. James Foster chairman of the committee that a most determined Effort to raise the Money required will now be made and that along with Street paving and an electric railway Danville in the near future will have a soldiers Monument. Its site has already been selected which will be the old cemetery on Bloom Street. As soon As the Monum it is an assured fact he said this Fine tract of ground will be deeded Over to the Borough free of most As a Public Park. It is pretty evident that the a lays of the old cemetery Are numbered. In its present condition it is a nuisance which the generation now forging to the front will not be Apt to tolerate very Long. It is Gratifying indo a i that things look so favourable for its future and that it can be put to a Uso in such perfect Harmony with the so a vice to which it was dedicated in the past. The project seems to hav a suddenly aroused a not jew interest. Some of those who formerly contributed have More than doubled their of the 10,000 needed nearly 3000 have been raised. Among those who have taken hold of the project determined to push it through is John h henceforth along with or Foster Sam a. Mccoy and others to will be an Active solicitor. Street paving May begin in a month the paving ordinance Lias been approved by the chief Burgess and it Dow will be advertised As required by Law. It will be inserted in two newspapers and in addition to this fifty posters containing the ordinance have been print d and this morning they will be put up in different parts of town. The next step will be the drawing up of detailed plans and specifications which will be the work of the committee on streets and Bridges in connection with the Borough Surveyor. is thought will be ready Tobe submitted to Council at its next regular meeting of june 3rd. If they Are approved proposals for paving Mill Street will be immediately invited. Under the circumstances paving of Mill Street May begin about july 1st. The number of men employed of the electric Railroad tuesday morning was increased from severity Odd to about one Hundred. The work went on about the same As during monday and attracted a Large number of spectators. The digging continues very Bard but Good Progress is made the rails for a considerable distance being Laid and spiked Down while the Advance guard of the diggers have passed up Bloom Street beyond Ash. The most of those who Wield the pick and shovel Are italians and they prove a very interesting study. They Are not yet Able to use any language but their own and they chatter almost incessantly while at. Work. Their names As a Rule Are Odd and unpronounceable and for convenience the italians Are designated on the pay Roll by number. They Are All comparatively Young Brawny robust looking Fellows physically quite equal to the haul task in which they Are engaged. Others employed mostly our townspeople Are mainly kept at other kinds of work handling ties placing rails in position spiking amp a. The work in any department is not of a kind for anyone who is not accustomed to hard labor As has been discovered by a few who decided to quit before the Day was out. George Maiers jr., is time keeper and lie finds Bis constant presence necessary to meet such emergencies As when men May desire to quit. The Force of workmen in a Short time will resolve itself into a trained Ami steady Crew and the work will make rapid strides. Interesting trip for guard. Members of company of 12th regiment n. G. P., Aro looking Forward to the division Encampment this year with Especial pleasure As the event will be held at Gettysburg a Mecca dear to every Soldier because of its historical associations. Thousands of persons visit Gettysburg each year but the members of the guard this year will have the right of Way and will be treated to the trip free of Cost. The Date fixed for the division Encampment is july 23-30. The event will bring about 10,000 soldiers to Gettysburg. The government is leaving nothing undone to encourage interest and Good discipline in the ranks of the National guard. The latest departure which requires that All non commissioned officers undergo examination is a step which shows the higher estimate placed upon the men in subordinate positions. The nun commissioned officers of company f will be examined in tin armory Oil june 13th at 7 30 p. M. Tali police Are after the boys. The police Are after the boys week. Several members of Council at the regular meeting Friday night reported unseemly conduct on the part of half grown boys which proves a or at annoyance. This is especially True of the fourth Ward where the Hoys Are in the habit confined to his bed. Of congregating under the arc lights keeping up a noise until a late hour throwing stones amp a. From water Street comes the complaint that the boys attracted to the River front by the ferry put in their spare time in tearing the bark from and otherwise injuring the Young Willow Trees planted upon the River Bauk. All these things will have to be stopped and the police a making it their business to look after the offenders. Death of Solomon Pensyl. Solomon Pensyl an old and highly esteemed resident of South Danville passed away at 8 30 o clock last night after a Long siege of illness.

The Fine tract of Timber land at the foot of Trauley Mountain which constituted the famous Mountain Grove a amp meeting grounds is now practically a thing of the past. A saw Mill owned and operated by Ogeorge Orteau of Derry township is installed on the spot and Lias very nearly completed the work of Clearing the tract. The or a was one of the few Fine tracts of Woodland remaining in that Section and it would probably have disappeared Long ago had it not been for the fact that it was selected As a site for the c Imp meeting. There were Many sacred associations clustering around the Fine old Trees and it i i indeed much to be deplored that they were not spared by the Woodman s axe. 52.18 on swi a. 112.03 Vav a.
