Dauville is scheduled to a Day the Bloomsburg High school foot Hall team in this City saturday afternoon. The game Wil be played at athlete a Park. The boys expect a Good fast game. A formidable Roli of documents about the size of and resembling a base Ball Bat arrived at City Hall via Adams express yesterday morning. This Odd a shaped packet has Cost the Borough within a trifle a if one thousand dollars and relates directly to an additional and much larger expenditure that will in All probability fall to our portion in a few years time. The. Roll of documents which have not been opened is from Charles e. J Collins it Ivil Ami Hydra Lio Engineer i who late in tin summer completed the j Survey relating to the purification a it i sewage us required by the state do Jar tent of health. The Blue and Black prints enclosed comprise com a Ilene drawings of the sewer system and the sewage disposal Plant. As to the Cost the drawings together with tin estimate of the Cost of additional Sowers and the sewage disposal Plant will to taken up by Council at its next meeting Friday night. Just what spot Lias been selected by the Engineer for the a Lis Diosal Plant is a matter of conjecture with the Public. The general impression seems to in that it will be located below town in a Field just this Side of the creeks Mouth but nothing definite will be known on the subject until the a Duns Are made Public. Engineer Collins was awarded the contract for $.150. To be exact therefore this is what the Borough pays for the big Roll of Blue and Black prints the estimate,&c., received at City Hall yesterday. The estimated Cost of the improvement itself that is the Sewor system Aud the sewage disposal Plant us Well As other data connected with the Survey will not be made known until the meeting of Council. Thu Cost however is out of the Points that it fact the tax payers the most vitally and alone is sufficient to invest the next meeting of Council with unusual interest. Many persons have seemingly figured extravagantly on the Cost of thu sewage this Diosal Plant estimating thu outlay required at $125,000 or upward. How nearly such persons am Correct remains to he seen. It is known that the Survey embraced Many Miles of additional sewers to provide not Only for build up portions but also for possible expansion of the town in years t o come. An Effort will be made to have or. Collins present at the mooting Friday night in order that he May give information on certain Points relating to the matter in hand that May not he 1 Clear to the Council Man.

After Jinying a tribute to or. Dixon who he declared is one of the greatest i scientists of his time or. Stock eur i Large upon the work being a com i Pic shed by the state department of i health. Raco homicide the speaker declare Al is worse than race suicide. Theodore Roosevelt was quoted in his famous saying that a it Republic health is a nations greatest asset. A the speaker dwelt upon the rules and regulations Laid Down by the state department of health for Observance in cases of diphtheria and Scarlet fever. As to Scarlet fever which he pronounced one of the most contagious diseases known he said no germ Lias As yet been discovered. Diphtheria Ami Scarlet fever have some Points in common and it is a fact that an outbreak of one a Loes not occur unless the other prevails to some extent in the same locality. Or. Stock illustrated his subject by coloured plates. He showed Well defined Casse of diphtheria and follicular tonsillitis one of which is sometimes taken for the other. To account for the outbreak in Danville he at sauced the theory that a child infected with diphtheria but supposed to have tonsillitis was permitted to attend school and use the common drinking cup. The coloured plates were also used to show the appearance of the Throat in Scarlet fever also to illustrate the manufacture of Antitoxin which is instrumental to such a marked a Negroe in reducing the a Loath rate in diphtheria.
