By order of county commissioners of Montour Aud Northumberland a most unfortunate Accident occurred in this City about noon monday in which a Well known and highly respected citizen of Valley township lost his life. The Accident was especially a in that it occurred under circumstances which unless perfectly understood Are Apt to give Rise to false impressions both a As relates to the victim and the place where a the sad affair took place the eau who lost his life was Henry a d. Yorks Aud briefly told the Circum stances under which lie sustained fatal 1 injury Aro As follows during yesterday Forenoon or. Yorks who lives at the Eastern end of Valley township started from Home Aud walked into town with county commissioner c. Xiv. Cook. After reaching Danville Aud while walking up Mill Street or. Yorks became desirous of seeking a toilet room the Board contains a similar notice Aud was directed by or. Cook to the to owners Ami Drivers of automobiles who Are warned not to operate or drive any automobile or motor vehicle across any portion of the Bridge at a Speed greater than a mile in six minutes under penalty of a Fine not less than ten dollars nor More than Twenty dollars the Large Board or notices were painted by Chris Hershey Aud were delivered at the county commissioners1 office on saturday. After some slight alterations in workmanship they will be posted at the Post a aug of the notices imposing these rather Radical restrictions upon Drivers is pursuant to action taken at a joint meeting of the county commissioners of Northumberland and Montour coun Murro alleyway Kitwe Nelias Maiers restaurant and the property adjoining which leads around to the rear of the restaurant. The Man followed the walk Aud understanding that the conveniences were installed in the House he entered the Side door that leads into Oue of the apartments at the rear. Once inside he was directed to the front apartment in which the bar is located and from the rear of which opens the door to the room he was in quest of. Now comes the really remarkable part of the Story. In entering the bar room from the rear a person walk a through a Short passage from the Side of which opens a door leading into the cellar Way. The cellar Steps ate Atli ties recently Aud grew out of the abuse or Steep and treacherous and in order of the Bridge by automobile its and of Prev out persons from falling great persons wishing to show off their care has always been taken to keep horses who habitually used the Bridge As a Speedway. The Montour county Board of commissioners might have Compromise on some rate of Speed a trifle faster than a walk if the maintaining of aug Middle ground were practicable in the premises but the Northumberland county Board could not see that a Compromise was practicable Aud insisted on carrying out the letter of the Law in Sincli cases made Aud provided or in other we ords on holding All Down to a walk. A great big kick will no doubt result from this action of the county commissioners. During the year or More that the Bridge has been open there has been to restrictions As to the door closed. More than this in order to prevent even the remotest possibility of Accident. Or. Maier devised an ingenious lock or contrivance by Means of which the door is sure to five shut and lock itself. It Cau Only be opened by pulling a Cord to which an Iron ring is attached and w hich protrudes at the opposite Sido of the door where the hinges Are fastened la this was the greatest possible Security seemed assured As to one hut those familiar with the device could open the door at All Aud thus All danger that might arise from strangers mistaking the door for one leading outside was obviated. But alas As the sequel shows a Speed. The horses have become a strange fatality seems to control some sunday services at St. John s. Arrangements have been Mado whereby service will be held at St. Johns German lutheran Church twice each sunday Ino Ruig Aud evening. Services will be held for the lutheran congregations at Grovania and Ridge Ville on alternate sunday afternoons. This arrangement of services will be in effect after next sunday. Practising for Christmas. Since Christmas is but four weeks away the sunday Are beginning to practice the work by which they expect to observe the birth of the Christ child Aud at the same time entertain their friends. The practice at the present time consists largely in Drill in the musical numbers Aud the recitative will he taken up later. The present indications Are that the services in All of our churches will be Vrey Beautiful and appropriate. Robbed mine Box cars. On sunday night nine Reading fre get cars on the siding at West Milton were broken into by robbers and n Quantity of wine and cigars Aud other merchandise was taken. The matter was kept As quiet As possible monday by the Railroad people Aud several detectives were on the ground during the most of the Day. As far As is known there is no glue to the Thieve customer to trotting across and it will prove a hard Job to hold some of them Down to a walk. The sweeping restrict ious As to Speed has of course been All brought about by reckless a and inconsiderate people who Are in the habit of speeding their horses Over the Bridge. Whether a slow or moderate Trot injures the Bridge to any appreciable extent might be a question but As to the racing of horses or Spe Diug of automobiles through the driveway there can be to difference of opinion. The effect on the Bridge is perceptible at such times and to Oue can doubt but injury must result. Dropped dead on Public Road.

The officer however kept at a distance until the women re entered a store Aud inquired for the package at this Point the officer arrested them. The women both protested their and affected to to thoroughly Imlig aut at the accusation. Justice of the peace Oglesby was called Down to the store Aud of being assured by the women that they were in docent lie asked them to give their names As by that he could ascertain whether their Story was True.

Can to you come up Here. Ill meet you at the it is not Clear whether the person addressed paid any attention to the Appeal. But the subdued conversation j did suffice to turn attention to the place where the women were stopping Aud the chief of Polhe it no time in visiting the hostelry to determine whether they might not have left some goods there. He was rewarded by finding two Large pasteboard boxes crammed full of goods. Some of the articles born Tho name of d. R. Eckman Aud others that of Fred Howe.
