Sechler ferry Street is a step son while mrs. S. B. Kocher at whose Home a aunt Peggy lived Aud died is a step daughter. There Are a Large number of other relatives including grand nieces Anil nephews Aud even great grand nieces Aud nephews. All whose lives in any Way came in Contact with a aunt Peggy attest her Sweet Motherly disposition her devout nature Aud her gracious personality. The Universal love Aud esteem in which she was held proved a Well Spring from which came Many tender tributes and kind offices without mini Ber. Which made her life Worth living even while Many of its enjoy meets were Cut off and she lingered in the very Shadow of eternity. Of her last birthday a aunt Peggy repeated the Beautiful sentiment that she had Given expression so often before Aud which was the effect that in the very nature of things she could expect live but a Little while longer hut that in any event she was Content Aud perfectly resigned she Felt that she had lived a Long time and was w Illing Lay her body aside whenever it seemed be the will of the creator that she should go. Across the Fields from lie Kocher Home where a aunt Peggy breathed her last in Plain View lies the Homestead farm on which she first saw the Light of Dav Over one Hundred Vears ago. It was around the Hearth True of this farm that a aunt Peggy so fondest recollections entered even the very last when reminiscent she was fond of portraying the Beautiful pictures of childhood that she retained in her memory. She could recall the nights of the old fashioned Winters. When she was still Little More than a babe Aud her father protect her from the biting cold wrapped her in a Blanket Aud carried her bed. Fresh upon her mind even was the circumstance that her father first warmed the Blanket by the fire. Later As a girl of four 1 teen when Danville consisted ouly of some half dozen houses she recalled carrying cherries through the Woods which lined Bloom Street and Selling them for six cents per quart at tie Only store in town which stood on West Market Street near the site of what was later the Academy. This was before Peter Baldy opened a store in the log building near the River la her declining years a aunt Peggy so memory dwelt on tie Days when men wore knee breeches Aud wore their hair hanging Down their backs in a Cue or pig Tail Long before the canal the Railroad or even the rolling Mill was dreamed of.

All details relating carrying the Church Street sewer through under the tracks of the p. Amp r. And the d. L. Amp w. Railroad companies have now practically been arranged and unless there is delay in the further shipment of pipe tiie sewer will be completed during the present Mouth. G. J. Ray division Engineer of the d. L. Amp w. Railroad company was in this City yest Crdal morning and met the Street and Bridge committee of Council going with the latter care fully Over the ground at the Church Street crossing where the sewer will have go through under the track. Tiie d. L. Amp w. Railroad company at no time showed any antagonism the Mere proposition carrying the sewer through under the track the Only question seemed be whether the improvement was one whose Cost should be borne by the Railroad company or the Borough of Danville. At the meeting yesterday at which the Borough was represented by messes. Vastire Jacobs Bedea Aud Hughes it was arranged that the d. L. Amp w. People should proceed Lav the pipe which will he of Iron Twenty four inches in diameter leaving the question As who shall pay the Bill be determined later. If it is discovered that the changing of the water course which makes the new sewer necessary rebounds the Railroad company s advantage then the latter will unhesitatingly assume the Cost. That the Railroad company will he benefited the committee on streets and Bridges thinks it demonstrated yesterday. Superintendent Turk of the p. Amp r. Railway was in this City a few Days ago Aud with the committee on streets and Bridges went Over the ground at the Bloom Street crossing where the sewer also will have be carried through underneath the track. The p. Amp r. People regard the improvement in its relation them As a very valuable one Aud will do the work at their own expense sinking 24 Inch Iron pipe the Section be Laid by each of the Railroad companies will be some Twenty four feet in length Rumor causes excitement. The sensitive soul from politics. Should Uhr Tam a Rumor that was very generally circulated about the Center of town yesterday afternoon but which upon investigation was found be untrue was that n Man had been found dead in a Field along Bloom Road. The Story which was told in several different phases had it that the Man had been shot accidentally while out Hunting. The tale was however purely imaginary. Stricken with apoplexy. Thomas c. Kear the Well known Shoemaker on North Mill Street is lying very critically ill at his Homo Spruce Street As the result of a stroke of apoplexy sustained of sunday last. At intervals for several years past has suffered from this cause but the strokes All were very Light Aud he soon recovered from the effects. In All he has sustained some half a dozen strokes. The Oue sunday was a very severe one and has left the Man he Pless Aud unconscious. Or. Kear is seven seven years of age which considering the severity of the attack leaves but poor prospects of recovery. He is a very widely known resident of our town and the news that Helms been stricken will he received with much regret a Bloomsburg and Berwick. There isun much love lost Between Bloomsburg and Berwick these Days. There was a fierce rivalry Between the a two towns for the election of the president judge of this District and Berwick is loud in her exultation at the outcome. Bloomsburg on the other hand maintains an attitude of quiet disdain. The inscriptions on some of the transp Rucies in the Parade at the Evans Celebration on monday night reflect the sentiments of the Berwick people. One of them read a a Bloomsburg gave Evans a majority nit a Aud another a we have the judge next the court will remove Arnold. Sheriff George Maiers Aud his Deputy f. G. Peters will leave for the Eastern Penitentiary this morning whence they will remove George Arnold a prisoner from Montour county the Hospital for the insane at Norristown. Arnold was adjudged insane by a commission appointed by the Montour county court. Referred Farmers. A business Mau of this City a Nom Ber of the Board of Trade makes a practical suggestion which if carried out would no doubt result in material advancement. Benefiting the Rural sections Aud the town alike. He thinks it is a matter that should be taken up by the Farmers and would form a profitable subject for discussion at the coming Grange meeting. He takes the View that As Industrial advancement in any Center benefits those owning land around it quite As much As the wage Aud business men of the town itself it devolves a pc the Farmers employ every Means Advance the Industrial interest of tiie whole Community. Just now the Geu Lemau thinks the agriculturists of Montour county As Well As those who live in Tho adjoining counties near Dauville hav9 a Good Opportunity show their Enterprise by taking up the subject of beet culture which at this time is receiving much Atte Tiou As a Developer for the Rural sections and a foundation for a thriving Industry where labor is looking for employment. Throughout the West Many new towns owe their origin the beet sugar Industry while the Laud for Miles around has increased in value tenfold. The crop is a most reliable one Aud reports from All Over the country reveal an enormous tonnage. Considering the vast areas of land available there would seem no reason Why our country should not be self producing in sugar. At present the United states purchases immense quantities of beet sugar in Europe. The Geu Lemau quoted Lias Doue some figuring which shows that under beet cultivation ten acres of Laud properly cared support a family. Thus Between Danville Aud Northumberland or within a radius of the same distance in any other direction instead of tire Large farms with indifferent yield Aud Uncertain profits if the beet were cultivated we might have ten farms or Homes where Oue exists now while the demand for the product would be a Ever increasing Oue Aud tiie profits would be unvarying and secure. Danville As a Center would become a site of a sugar refinery. It would be an Industry of importance one of the very things Are looking for it would come without Effort or expenditure of Money As the logical result of adopting cultivation of the beet big bag of game. One of the largest hauls of game that Lias come town this season was brought in last evening by Robert y. Gearhart of this City and Harry Weaver of Toby Ruu hollow who with a couple of friends were gunning on the mountains near Sonestown for a couple of Days past. The big bag of game consisted of Twenty six pheasants Aud ten rabbits All of which were displayed at m. H. Schram a store last even aug. The Fine haul made by or. Gearhart Aud party so far As known. Ims been exceeded ouly once in Montour county this season Aud that was Liv the record breaking Luck of Harry Billmeyer and party recently reported in these columns. These gentlemen it will be remembered bagged 88 pheasants. John Martin a huckster of near Ottawa and Well known in this City Rohero lie disposes of much of his produce was tiie victim of a most unusual catastrophe in which his Wagon and a Load of produce Aud other articles were destroyed by fire. Or. Martin had been nut on a buy ing expedition during tuesday morning and by noon his Wagon was pretty Well filled with the commodities of his vocation. He stopped for dinner at tie Hilner Home near the Bethel Church tied his team and leaving his pipe behind in the Wagon proceeded in the direction of the Savory doors that foretold of tie midday cooking. Now the Vilners have More or loss of a reputation throughout the country for preparing a tip top meal so that possibly or Martin May be pardoned for not noticing the conflagration that was taking place in front of the House although the fire and smoke attracted the attention of the neighbors for Miles around. When the unfortunate huckster had satisfied the inner Mau his attention was directed what once was his Prond equipage. The fire which without doubt started from his pipe had by that time nearly burned itself ont the Wagon Box Aud top were destroyed and one of the horses considerably burned. But the list of or. Martin a losses from the contents of his Wagon made a matter of serious proportions. 60 dozen of eggs Aud eggs Are pretty High just no Many pounds of a number of chickens All were destroyed. In the Wagon also were 8 horse blankets that burned together with a new pair of shoes and a new pair of Over shoes. Talk of through electric read. The Bloomsburg daily last evening is responsible for the following although some Are inclined take a sceptical View of tie much reported trolley Road from Wilkes Barre through Sudbury nevertheless the persistency of the frequent reports regarding the same Aud tiie manner in which these Are received by the prime motors in trolley affairs strongly indicates that the proposed Road is far from visionary and will probably be an actuality realized in the surprisingly near future. The latest reports from Wilkes Barre Are that the proposed Road is be constructed by a company which is practically the same corporation that is building the present third rail line from Wilkes Barre Hazleton familiarly Guowu As the a Cannonball Quot and the same report says that the Road Down the Susquehanna will also run into the handsome new station now being built for the Quot Road in Wilkes Barre. If the present plans of the Meu Back of this project Are carried out As outlined they will in All probability buy no the rights of the Dauville and Sun Bury Road which will give them a right of Way through both of those towns. It is even intimated that it is in anticipation of this Purchase that the Sunbury line is now being held up. From Wilkes Barre the tracks of the Hazleton Road would be followed Empire Aud then would Branch off Nanticoke. From Nanticoke the Road would follow the old Pennsylvania casual Patli pretty much All the Way Down Northumberland. When a Bloomsburg daily Man interviewed atty. C. C. Yetter of the Danville amp Sudbury Road and other trolley men in this town regarding the matter they would neither affirm or deny the probability of such a Road going through they mostly smiled Aud looked Wise. However the impression was gained that such a project need Surprise no one even if work is started next Spring. A through line is bound come eventually they All Argee. Big party.
