The two visitors Are son and Daugh ter of Jolt Moore a prominent real estate owner of former present one is or. Moore a first visit to Danville in Twenty five years. The visitors find much to interest them Here and Are cordially welcomed by old friends on every Side. Or. Moore was in the Treasury department at Washington for Many years during both Cleveland Sand Mckinley s administration. T. W. Bed a a Benedict. Mrs. Ellen Bomboy and councilman t. W. Bed a wore United in the holy Bonds of Matrimony on saturday evening. The ceremony was performed at the Home of the Bride on front Street at 8 30 of clock by the Rev. Joseph e. Guy pastor of the Shiloh reformed Church. Only the immediate family was present. The Bride is a widely known and fallen upon highly esteemed resident of Orr town. The Groom who is Foreman at the structural tubing works is likewise Well known and very popular. The action taken by the school Board monday night looking to a stricter enforcement Ottlie school Law relating to attendance bore fruit yesterday in the arrest of a resident of the second Ward for failing to Semi his eleven year old son to school with sufficient regularity. The Case was Oue which is Likely to have a parallel at any time. The information was lodged by truant officer w. E. Young who is responsible for the attendance of pupils. The hearing was held before Justice Oglesby who imposed a Fine of two dollars and costs under the act of 1901, which oblige parents to Semi their children to school seventy five per cent of the time elapsed since the beginning of the term the penalty being two dollars Fine or two Days imprisonment for the first offence and five dollars Fine or five Days imprisonment for the Suc oud offence. In the Case of the Man arrested his boy was not making anything like full time. Truancy it seems did not enter into it As the boy merely stayed at Home which left the truant officer to other alternative than to proceed through the parents. As the circumstances became known the defendant became an object of considerable sympathy. He admitted that his boy was out of school. Earlier in the term the father kept him out with tie consent of one of the local directors later he was very anxious to have the boy in school but during his absence at work the boy was permitted to remain at Home by the Mother. The Justice explained to the defendant that in the face of the Law the a a permission a granted by the director was without weight also that while unfortunate he As father and head of the family was responsible for his children a attendance or nou attend Ance at school regardless of the part played by any other member of the family. The defendant saw the Point and unhesitatingly paid Fine and costs amounting to $2.75. Comment on the above is unnecessary. That hardship is wrought on poor people who can Illy afford to Bear the expense when the Law is permitted to take its course is quite evident. The remedy would lie in comply ing with the Law Aud keeping children in school As required. All the facts of the above Case Are presented with the Hope that they May prove an object lesson to those parents who Art tempted to become negligent in the matter of sending children to school. The Bellefonte spent of John Boden Cirl hired at burglar. A hold attempt to Rob Tow Home of mis. John Creasy at Berwick Early yesterday morning was frustrated by mrs. Creasye a daughter.

The Section is Lone and deserted after dark these nights handed Over to the police who hide in the dark places hoping to Lay their heavy hands on the Man in the cloak. Up to Date there have been no arrests although All sorts of stories Are told. Some relate that the cloak mail who was found to be a resident in disguise was caught and so severely beaten that lie had to is carried Home. Another version of the Story is that the resident dressed himself up in woman a apparel and started out to put himself in the Way of tin , by whom he hoped to be accosted in which event lie intended to Thrush the fellow within ail Inch of his life. Tin Story has it that tin Man fell into the hands of others searching for the cloak Matin was mistaken for him and so badly beaten that lie had to be carried Home. Mrs. S. B.

Railroad bed burning up. For the past several Days the d. L. A w. Roadbed at Berwick near the new River Bridge has been on fire and it is feared that the track will Settle to such a extent that a new roadbed will have to be constructed. When thu present roadbed was Laid Culm from the mines was used As bal last and several Days ago this caught tire from the hot ashes from the Berwick steam Pant. Since that time despite the efforts of tin track Crew to put out the fire with water it still Coati uses to Burn. The Bridge company has a Large amount of its Iron along the i. L. Amp w tracks and in order to keep the heat out of the Iron which would Render it useless a Force of men has been engaged both night and Day to pour water Over tin Iron until it can he removed to a place of safety.

Oglesby at 10 of clock next tuesday morning to answer for running its trains through the Borough of Danville at a Speed greater than eight Miles per hour the limit fixed by the Borough ordinance. Semi Nous were issued to the 1. L. Amp w. Company a Mouth or so ago but owing to a technicality the action was dropped before the hearing took place. In the interim following it is alleged that the d. L. Amp w. Trains have been running through town at a rate of Speed which would seem to indicate that the trainmen intend to ignore tie Jiro visions of the Borough ordinance. Lii of of police Mincemoyer yesterday morning timed the 10 17 d. L. Amp w. Passenger train As it seeded through town below Mill Street Aud found that it covered the marked off space of Oue Hundred Yards in just five and one half seconds which is equivalent to the rate of 37 1-5 Miles per hour.

J the president today issued a pro Clam Tiou naming thursday ovum her 29, As the Day of thanksgiving. In the course of his proclamation j the president says a never before in our history or in the history of any other nation has a people enjoyed More abounding material Prosperity than is ours a Prosperity so great that it should arouse in us to spirit of reckless Pride Ami least of All a spirit of heedless disregard of our rather a sober sense of our Many blessings and a Resolute purpose under Providence not to forfeit them by any action of our own. A material Well being indispensable though it is can never to anything hut the foundation of True National greatness and happiness. 11 we build nothing upon this foundation then our National life will lie As meaningless where Only the foundation Lias been Laid. Upon our material Well being must to built a superstructure or individual and National life lived in accordance with the Laws of the High St morality or else our Prosperity itself will in the Long run turn out a curse instead of a Blessing. We should be both reverently thankful for what we have received and earnestly Bent upon turning it into a Means of Grace and not of eggs Are 5carce. Eggs have become a scarce Comindo a Ity not Only in the Curbstone Market hut also in the stores and the Price i up to a Point Seldom reached except in midwinter. The very few eggs in Market tuesday vanished As if Lay magic and at an Early hour it was difficult to Purchase any in the stores except the kind that were a not fresh and the Price that these commanded was Twenty eight cents per dozen then is a suspicion that eggs Are being bought up and shipped to the big cd Nurer where they arc put in storage a Tio Babiy in the interest of an egg tru to.

Is h egg a Are Lor Sale they declare a Are brought into the Danville Market it developed at the meeting of the school Hoard monday that through no neglect of the school authorities the Law obliging children under 14 years of age to attend school is not being lived no to quite As rigidly As it ought to be. Or. Fischer called attention to several instances in which children apparently under 14 years Are at work instead of attending school. I several instances parents have put in a Strong plea for exemption or clemency on the ground that through straightened circumstances in the family the Aid of the child Asa wage earner is seriously needed. After a thorough discussion it was the sense of the school Board that no exceptions can he made to matter what the family Ciranni sauces May he and that it devolves upon the truant officer to see to it that All children under 11 years Art kept in school also that those employing children should keep the requirements of the Law in mind and by exercising care prevent themselves from being imposed upon Aud unwittingly admitting Hoys and girls into their employ who Are under fourteen. Borough superintendent Gordy called Atten Riou to the need of holders for the Type writers in the commercial department. In our High school he said we Are teaching Type writing by the a touch by which it is understood the pupils manipulate the machine on the same principle that a person learn to Plav the piano. Without a Holder for the notes the pupils Are obliged to keep their Heads turned to Oue Side which places them on a unnatural position. To overcome this a modern device is coining into general use by which the notes Are held directly in front of the Pupil on the typewriter. The Board was impressed with the Utility of the device and on motion of or. Heiss it was ordered that one half dozen of the a holders Quot be purchased. The following members were present.

Charles Beyer of West Hemlock township accompanied by George Bedea and Grant Ridgeway of this City put in tuesday night Coon Hunt ing a in Montour Ridge opposite Cameron. Yesterday morning they appeared in town with three Large Coons which excited the envy of All other Coon limiters. Or. Beyer is a expert after Coons and lie has two of the Best Coon dogs in the country Bof Cli of which accompanied the party tuesday night. The present being the a a dark of the Moon a is considered the very Best time for Conns Aud every night now in Hunters ire out in Force although it is very rarely that so Many Fine Coons Are bagged As were caught by or.

Of Tou Zilitis alone Oik of our physicians yesterday stated that in Oue Day he was called to attend no less than twelve c ases the prevalence of sore Throat even if in the More harm less forms causes no Little anxiety and embarrassment among tin it shool teachers. Case alter Case is developed in the schools of the Borough Aud those in charge not knowing whether diphtheria May develop or not and dreading to expose the rest of tin school to the least danger of infection Are put to their with sends in dealing with tie Case. Obviously the Safe thing to do would be to a exclude the child from school at the first symptoms Ltd of sore Throat and admit it Only when the True nature of t ailment is established to tin teachers Stis fac Tiou. George Arnold of this City who on february 28th, 1905, in the court of Montour county was convicted of assault Aud Battery with intent to kill and on March 4, 1905, was sentenced by judge Little for two years Aud six months in the Eastern Penitentiary according to information received at the a office a gone insane Ami is no longer a lit subject for penal discipline. The application to the judges of the court of Montour county which asks that a pm Mission be appointed to in quiz into id report on the mental condition of George Arnold was received at tin court House yesterday and is signed by a liar Les c. Church Warden of Trio Eastern Penitentiary. In his application the Warden set Forth that lie believes Arnold to be insane Ami in consequence of such insanity an unfit subject for the Penitentiary that the said prisoner Lias constant outbreaks that lie has threatened to kill his keeper that he Hae marked delusions of Iier solutions Aud threatens violence when released to those whom he believes Are persecuting him. He thinks that Poison is being injected into him to put his heart out of order Aud in the opinion of the Petitioner is a dangerous person. The applicant therefore requested that the said George Arnold he removed to a Hospital for the insane. The court will probably take action on the wardens application today appointing a commission to inquire into and report on the prisoners mental condition. George Arnold was a resident of Welsh Hill. The victim of his shooting was William j Keefer who had a very narrow escape from being killed. Keefer was struck of the forehead by the Bullet which glanced Ami ploughed a Furrow through the Scalp on the top of his head.

Sandel arrived in Danville yesterday morning and proceeded to the Montour House where he made inquiries concerning his brother later proceeding to the residence of the latter on Church Street. Or. Sandel was born of the Home a Stead farm in West Hemlock township now occupied by his Nephew Hiram Sandel. He was a Young Man when he left Danville. He settled in Michigan Aud the ties which soon bound him to that state held him so tightly that in the Long interim of Over half a Century he never paid a visit to his native place. It was not however that he did not frequently think of revisiting the scenes of his youth the visit was postponed however until now in his advanced years it has actually taken place. I. Sandel sees but few of the landmarks remaining that greeted him when he bade Montour county goodbye. Comparatively few of the faces too remain that he was familiar with Over fifty years ago and those that Are still Here to Greet him like his own Are much changed by time Aud the trials of life. It has been a Long time since a sojourner has appeared in Danville to whose visit greater interest attached than to or. A Audelo a. Rounding out 1 Ini years.
