The engine is a big one Aud was comparatively new when the Furnace was shut Down. When the Furance was dismantled practically All the machinery and Iron work was reduced to scrap. The big blowing engine however was considered too valuable to dispose of in that manner although the two auxiliary engines were broken up.

The raising of the building will constitute an improvement which will be of much More importance to the Borough than As it merely affects the hotel property it is the sidewalk repairs that will accompany the work that will be especially appreciated by the Public. For nearly a year and a half the Jia vement at that Point has lain nearly a foot below the Street paving connected with the sidewalk at the hed Deus House by a homely device of boards so slanting that it has to be provided with cleats to keep pedestrians from slipping and which people in derision have denominated a Chicken Steps.

Or. Cameron Shultz yesterday received a communication from the state health department relating to a novel proposition for promoting healthful conditions throughout the Community. The communication is from h. L. Viereck of the Academy of natural sciences Philadelphia w to is in charge of the Mosquito investigation being conducted under the auspices of the state department of health. The proposition is to Stock All permanent bodies of standing or of slow running water with Sunfish which devour and largely subsist upon the worm stage of mosquitoes. Not Only do mosquitoes prove a great pest because of the stings they inflict hut it has been demonstrated to the satisfaction of investigators that they Are Active agencies in spreading malaria. Because of the latter fact the Pennsylvania department of health is making a vigorous Effort to exterminate the troublesome insects. It is considered therefore perfectly feasible to Stock such boy lies of water As those in which mosquitoes Breed with Sun fish leaving it to these Little scavengers to annihilate the Mosquito crop. Professor Viereck writes or. Shultz that the state fisheries commissioner or. Meehan has a limited Supply of Sunfish to distribute where they Are most needed until tie Supply runs out. The fish Are transmitted Gratis hut that the fish commissioner May be in a position to ship these without serious difficulty the communication asks for certain data which tie Secretary of the Board of health will Supply. The Suu Fisli As shipped will be about two inches Long. In order that the devouring of the worm stage of the 11109-quitoes the object for which these Sun fish is intended is attained it will he necessary for the water in which they Are placed to have a margin that is As Cleau Aud As nearly Peri Edicular As possible. To make these Little a Mosquito policemen absolutely effective not Only must the edges of tie water be cleaned and made perpendicular but also care must be taken to see to it that 110 water covered leaves of any kind exist in any portion of the standing or slow running water to he stocked. Or. Shultz states that the Large Ponds at the upper end of town As Well As those at the various Brick Yards where mosquitoes Breed in millions Are Well adapted to the raising of Suu Fisli Aud will be stocked if the fish can be obtained. The canal he says is utterly out of the in Estious both by reason of its filthy condition and the fact that in times of rain it becomes a Swift running Stream a11 editorial in the Philadelphia inquirer yesterday unwittingly linked Danville with Bloomsburg Aud Ber w ick where diphtheria is rampant and then proceeds to make some insinuations reflecting on the physicians which so far As Danville is concerned will no doubt he resented by the doctors. Tie full measure of injustice done by the editorial which follows below is apparent when it is stated that there Are but five cases of diphtheria in Danville at present. This is the number give a representative of the new s yesterday by tie local registrar or. Shultz. It is True that two deaths have occurred but ouly Oue of these we As in the Borough. The disease is easily under control there being ouly five cases now As against seven in september. The Luquire has the following Tyrone Berwick Dauville and Bloomsburg four of the prettiest towns in the state Are wrestling with the diphtheria in Scourge. At the last accounting Tyrone had seventeen cases. The others gave no figures but at Berwick the sunday schools were closed Aud the Public schools were closed this week. Somewhat similar reports emanated from Bloomsburg where Thuc visitation was doubly unwelcome because of tie count a fair. We cannot vouch for the truthfulness of what we Are now going to say but it is rumoured that the authorities were a trifle slow getting to work right in several of these places. A unwillingness to have the facts become known a physician or two who dreaded the effect of the truth upon his general practice in Short the usual causes operated to claim additional victims.

The primitive Stone pavement which did service from time immemorial has already been removed the Stone being purchased by f. Q. Hartman who will use them in protecting the River Bank at Bis silk Mill. The example of Foust Bros should be followed by Many others about town who Makuta in sidewalks which Are hard to walk upon Ami not at All in keeping with what is expected of a progressive town. Here and there even in the populous parts of town there Are properties where no pavements at All Are Laid but it is a it question whether such a sidewalk is any worse than Oue where the bricks Are kicked Loose and awkward Aud ill fitting flagstones form a rough and uneven surface that makes walking Over them a trial and a hardship. There is scarcely a meeting but Council culls some property owner to account Ami gives him the usual ultimatum that he fix up the sidewalk w Ith in Rio Legal limit otherwise the Borough will a to the work at his expense. Nevertheless sidewalk repairs like Street repairs go on slowly. Only a few More weeks remain where such work can be a Lone to any a Vantage and the Best a possible use should be made of time intervening. States bad roads. A report by Maurice o.
