In this Way they will get proof f the epidemic and a rigid quaran be will be health takes action special meeting of school the local Board of health has adopted Radical measures in its efforts to Cope with the unfortunate conditions relative to the prevalence of whooping cough in to bring All the infected families under quarantine Between the present and the opening of the schools next week. During Friday or. Bouse visited different sections of the Borough and satisfied himself that the reports relative to whooping cough were not exaggerated. What he actually saw was Well described in his report to the Board of health Friday evening. He saw children he declared that had whooping cough playing on the Street and when seized with an attack of coughing would cease playing Anil cling to a Post or other support until the paroxysm was Over. Under such conditions he said the disease would continue to spread until the epidemic is spent. He strongly emphasized the Gravity of the situation. Statistics show he said that More children each year die of measles and whooping cough than of the supposedly More dangerous Dis eases diphtheria and Scarlet fever. The state Board of health he said does not assume control in an epidemic such As this. It devolves upon the local Board of health to act in the premises the state department of health sustaining merely the in lation of an advisor. Or. Newbaker president of the local Board of health explained How it has occurred that whooping cough has gained such a foothold in Danville. Most people he said believe that the disease is comparatively harmless and rather than suffer the inconveniences that might arise from having their houses placard they declined to employ a physician and undertook to treat the cases themselves. Thus it happened that Only a Small proportion of cases were reported. In this connection health officer b. B. Brown explained that Only seven houses embracing some eighteen cases Are placarded in Danville. Or. Bouse then explained that the Law requires every Householder to report to the health authorities whooping cough or any other communicable disease and for failure to do so householders Are liable to the same penalty that is provided for the physician that neglects to report communicable diseases. In Danville at present where whooping cough exists Aud physicians Are not employed the householders who have failed to report the disease stand in very great danger of being convicted in a summary proceeding before any Justice of the peace. On motion a Resolution was passed by the Board of health deciding to adopt the act of May 14, 1909, As its code. It was also decided to proceed to enforce its provisions relating to whooping cough immediately. That no one might plead igbo race of the Law nor of action taken by the local Board of health in the promises it was ordered that two thousand copies of the act together with the above Resolution of the Board of health be printed in circular form and that a copy be delivered personally into the hands of every House Holder in sidewalks the first on East Market Street to take up the work of laying new sidewalks to conform with the reconstruction of the Street Are Thomas j.

Other property owners it is said Are making arrangements to begin work on new sidewalks. The old tar pavement on the North Side of the Street taking in the properties of the And r. Railway and the structural tubing companies which has so Long been a feature in a Short time will give place to a modern sidewalk that will conform with the paving. E. S. Fornwald 111. E. S. Fornwald agent of the United states express company is confined to his Homo on Pine Street. Last week he was seized with an attack supposed to have been super induced by an Accident which has left him in a partially disabled condition. His recovery is expected. The school Board held a special meeting last night for the purpose of acting upon the proposition of employing a medical inspector for the schools to Aid in stamping out whooping cough. President w. A. Sechler occupied the chair. Among the other members present were Orth Swarts Burns Marks Shultz Pursel Fischer Gibson Heiss Aud Cole. President Sechler stated the object of the meeting which was to act on the suggestion made by or. Bouse of the state department of health As to the Best Means of stamping out whooping cough in Danville. Subject discussed or. Burns explained that he was present at a conference Between or. Bouse and some members of the school Board saturday night. Upon sober reflection he said he could not approve of the proposition to employ a medical inspector. The matter of expense was an obstacle. Or. Shultz explained that or. Bouse was at the head of the boards of health of the state and his visit Here primarily was to Deal with the local Board of health. He explained that there is an epidemic of whooping cough in Danville and that or. Bouse a suggestion is a Good one. A medical inspector in the schools at the present might Aid in coping with the epidemic. The suggestion is especially timely As very soon in All probability school boards under the Law will be required to employ a medical inspector. A school physician j. N. Pursel advanced the View that the teachers Are in a better position to detect whooping cough among the pupils than a medical inspector who would Como in Contact wit i the child Only for a Brief time. He advocated the employment of a school physician to whom the teachers should he required to Send All pupils that Are suspected of being infected with disease. A. H. Orth heartily endorsed or. Pursely a views As to the employment of a school physician. In the Case of a medical inspector in said tin Host to could a to would be to make a diagnosis and the parents could do As they pleased As to placing the child under treatment. Or. Fischer stated that he did not see How medical inspection was to result in stamping our whooping cough As he knows personally of one family having whooping cough that has had three different physicians each of whom said the disease could not be cured. It seemed to be the consensus of opinion that the proper thing to do in the premises would be to employ a school physician to give the pupils actual treatment. No definite action however was taken last night. The matter will probably come up again at the next meeting. Who May attend the matter of admitting pupils to school who come from families in which there is whooping cough was discussed at length. It was decided that where children ill of the disease Are properly isolated others of tin family that have not got whooping cough Mav attend smashed Danville a game saturdays scores.

As merry a War As has been witnessed on a Susquehanna league Diamond since the memorable fracas at Blouins Burg of july 5th, 1909, ended Tho game Between Berwick Aud Dauville at the former place on saturday. This time Danville left the Field with All the hours of War. The game was forfeited to Danville by the score of 9 to 0, and the face of Field manager Eddie Foster of the Berwick team bears the outward advisable signs of a severe pummel us. The events that transpired of Fowler Field during the half hour preceding the forfeiture of Tho game to Danville form about As thrilling a chapter As has been recorded in the history of the suss Neanua league. The trouble started in the last half of Tho seventh with Berwick at Bat. In the first half of the seventh Dauville had tied the score by tallying twice. Umlauf made the last out by Faun aug. Catcher Wager of Berwick sustained a broken Finger of the last Ball. When Berwick came in the excitement was running High. Patterson first up for Berwick struck out. Of Brien lieu drove a three Bagger into Center Field. Wager was next to hat and Umpire Wilson announced that so Arad in would Bat in his place. Amid the Din of the rooting the Danville players did not hear the announcement. Brennan delivered a Ball and Captain nipple and Brennan then ran up to the plate to protest Sharadin s batting out of order. Foster also came up to take part in the argument. A Choice Exchange of repartee followed Between Brennan and Foster in which both told each other in pretty Plain terms what they thought. Postre struck Brennan but the blow had scarcely been delivered before a a reds a Ainsworth who was standing at Fosters Side sprang at the Berwick Field manager and hit him a terrific Welt on the nose the crack of which was heard All Over the Field and then followed it with a other. By this time Brennan was Back into the fray and got in a couple licks on the belligerent Berwick player. Ainsworth a blow on Foster was the signal for the bleachers Aud Pait of the grand stand to get on the Field. The fighting players were dragged apart. Things were pretty Lively for a while but nobody was seriously Hurt. In tin excitement John Trowbridge of Dauville was arrested for lighting hut was later released upon payment of in nominal Tine. Umpire Wilson at once declared players Foster and Brennan out of Tho game for fighting. The retirement of Foster with Wager injured left Berwick with but eight men and unable of account of their depleted Liue up to Coati use the game. After half an hours wait for Berwick to prepare to continue the game. Umpire Wilson forfeited the contest to Dauville. Blame lies with Foster in investigating the affair to place the blame the usual obstacles Are met with in As Many conflicting views As there arc narrators. It seems pretty Clear however that Foster is getting nearly All the censure not Only in Danville but among the better class of base Ball lovers in Berwick As Well where he is not popular by any Means. Tho domineering attitude of this Man Lias been a source of strife in the league since he has Boen playing on this circuit. He is extremely unpopular among the players of his own team and from expressions of opinion after the game among those directly Back of base Balliu Berwick his actions Are not upheld by the people who should be his Radical supporters if he had any Shadow of right of his Side. The dispatches to the Philadelphia ers yesterday emanating from Berwick stated that Brennan started the trouble by calling Foster a a vile but the Danville players Tell that the ill feeling was engendered much earlier in the game at the instance of Foster who made ugly remarks to Brennan All daring the contest and even song Gostow names to the bleachers to Call Brunau. Tho players account of the fight indicate that it was not Brennan who first used a a a vile name a hut Foster himself who offered an insult to Breu Nan. After the fight for a while a Small mob of Berwick hot Heads threatened violence to the Danville players but they were escorted by Berwick police continued on Page 4. The water hairy h. Redding for Many years storekeeper at the Hospital for the insane and a useful and representative citizen died at his Home Foust Street at 4 15 o clock monday morning following a Long illness. Death was due to a complication of diseases. The health of the deceased failed some three years ago. He continued in his position at the Hospital however until Jone 1st last when owing to his rapid decline he resigned. His condition became steadily worse until death brought Relief. Born in Maine or. Redding was born at Calais me. He came to Danville about Twenty eight years ago accepting a position As attendant and assistant supervisor at the Hospital for the insane. After five years he was promoted to the position of Storek Ejier at the Hospital which he held for a period of Twenty three years. Or. Redding was a Man of unimpeachable integrity who found real pleasure in doing Good. There Are few persons at the Hospital who came in Contact with him there during his Long term of service but have occasion to remember him for some generous act that for the time made life s Burden easier Ami the rugged path Way smoother. He was a Man of splendid principles Aud in the Community stood for those things that make for civic righteousness Aud the purity of Tho Home. He was honoured As a resident of Danville he was honoured by being elected a school director to represent the second Ward and at the end of the first term was reelected. To was also chosen Asa member of Tho Board of trustees of the Mahoning presbyterian Church a position he held until his death. He was a past grand of Montour Lodge no. 109, i. O. O. F. He was also a Mem Bre of Beaver Lodge no. 182, k. Of p., this City. Or. Redding was aged 51 years and 11 months. He is survived by his widow and one Sou. Harry also by a brother n. B. Redding of Calais me. And one sister. Mrs. Annie Andrews Miltown n. of dog Days Samuel g. Dixon state commissioner of health sends out the warning a a beware of dog there is an interesting Story As to the Why foie of the so called dog Days. From the helical rising of the Star Sirius or the l of Star the largest and brightest of All the stars visible in Tho heavens during August superstitious reckoned their dog Days forty in number Twenty before and Twenty after the rising of the Star. The rising of the dog Star was supposed to be the occasion of Tho extreme heat and of the disease incidental to these Days because by Mere Accident the rising of the Star coincided with the hottest season of the year in the countries of residents in some parts of town should tin and ill informed be without water Wilile 1 pie in oth astronomers. Or parts Are using it lavishly or even however the time of the dog stars 1 wasting it. The fact most to be deriving the modern astronomers Tell plied to said is that we should be Danville is facing a water famine. Indeed As relates to some parts of town the famine is already on. During the present week the More elevated localities embracing Welsh Hill and portions of the fourth Ward have periodically been without water while even in the lower sections of town the pressure has been scarcely More than half what it ought to Liao been. At water works at the water works the pump that supplies the tanks has no difficulty in keeping the four big tubs full of water which implies that the process of filtration is going of As fast As practicable. To place another pump in commission. Raising water from the River under the present conditions would relieve the situation Only by giving the Borough unfiltered water direct from Tho River which is a measure not to be contemplated at the present season. Neither is it practicable to hasten the process of filtration As the result would be to impair the purity of the water. The predicament that the Borough is in is due solely to the fact that the demand during the dry season is greater than the Supply that Cau be produced by the water Plant at its present tub capacity. It frequently happens that for hours at a time there Are Only a couple of feet of water in the Reservoir while the pressure maintained is As Low As 40 pounds which is not sufficient to give Tho More elevated portions of the town water. Tho pressure was up to sixty pounds for a while yesterday afternoon which is still some Twenty pounds below what is Normal. What the result should be if a fire were to break out when Tho pressure is unavoidably Down so Low it does not require a very Luminous fancy to picture. Supt Keefer explains water superintendent J. Keefer was interviewed yesterday. The unfortunate condition he said has been brought about by the unprecedented demand for water caused by the dry people have an adequate ideas of the enormous Quantity of wafer used in sprinkling the streets and lawns. Nor is the legitimate use of water alone to be reckoned with the waste must also be taken into account. In dry weather few people seem to think of economizing in the use of water it is simply poured away. Then again our manufacturing industries or. Keefer explained Are drawing upon the Borough very heavily for water As in every instance their own Supply where they have one is running very Low. Then in bind effect is to produce such a Drain upon the Borough water Supply As probably Seldom or never occur Reo before. He agreed that the situation is serious. Use water sparingly he regards it As unfortunate that typhoid fever us depends upon the latitude Aud is growing later Eracli year so that in the course of time the Star will Rise in midwinter. What warning will the old folks give to their a venturesome grandchildren then As they a beat it toward the River of a hot summer Day. Frame being raised the Frame of the seventy foot Extension of the brazing department of the structural tubing works is now being raised. The new portion is merely a continuation of the brazing department and will fill All the intervening space eastward to the main Plant doing away with the several Small Aud inconvenient buildings now used for inspecting that occupy that spot. Not Only will the appearance of Tho Plant be much improved but better Light and ventilation will be secured. The work is in charge of j. A. Mow Rey. Without adequate fire Protection. To Cut off the Supply of the Industrial plants would be to cause them to shut Down throwing our working population out of employment. A he urged that the present article embody an Appeal directly from him urging All water takers to abstain from sprinkling both streets and lawns for the present and to be just As economic Al in the use of water As they can be. If this request be heeded it May be found possible to keep a Safe margin of water in the Reservoir to be used in Case of fire if it is not heeded Theu the present conditions must continue. Blackbirds Etc. Today september 1st, the open season begins for the following Birds Black Birds of All kinds doves we footed fowl of All kinds Shore Birds and snipe Jack or Wilson. Of each of the above kinds an unlimited number May be killed by one person. Unfortunately none of Tho above named varieties of game abounds very largely in this Section Aud local Nimrod s to ill be obliged to wait until october 1st, when Woodcock and Bear come in before they will realize much sport.

Rabbits come in on november 1st, the Beason continuing until december 15th.runaway averted what promised to be a thrilling run away of Mill Street yesterday afternoon was averted by the level headed Ness of Leou Moyer one of the proprietors of Moyer Bros grocery. About 5 30 of clock a Carriage in which were a Young lady and a Small boy. Drove up in front of Harris Hook store Aud the youngster went in to Mako a Purchase. Scarcely had to left than the horse took fright at something Aud started Down the Street gaining Speed with every bound. Or. Moyer was in the act of removing some groceries from the delivery Wagon into the store when the runaway passed. The Young lady bravely sawing of the reins in an attempt to Stop the frightened beast was powerless. With a bound or. Moyer took up the Chase. Before the other Side of the canal had been reached to had caught up with the Veli icle and heedless of danger made a dash for the buggy Box. He lauded safely grabbed the lines from the Voung lady a hands and brought the horse to a Stop in front of beruheimer�?T8 store. Bloomsburg is alarmed Over an outbreak of typhoid fever. While there Are Only half a dozen cases in town conditions in the entire Valley above that Point Are by no Means reassuring Aud the blooms burgers Are afraid that the disease May spread. The braid of health a has issued a warning that All water used for drinking be boiled at least 20 minutes. Samples of water Are also being sent away for analysis. In Danville in View of the above it is reassuring to reflect that not a single Case of typhoid fever developed in Danville during August the last Case reported being of july 13th. It is a fact that do aug the last twelve months Danville has enjoyed a greater immunity from typhoid fever than for Many years past. That the sewage disposal Plant at the Hospital for the insane is to be credited with bringing about this better showing to some extent is quite Likely. At the same time we must not lose sight of the fact that our filter Plant is an Active and efficient Factor in contributing to the general Good results. Examine the water with a fearful epidemic of typhoid fever raging at Wilkes Barre and wit i the same disease prevalent in nearly every other town South of it in the North Branch Valley the present is not a time to be Over confident and to neglect reasonable precautions.,the River just now has reached the lowest Mark in years. Literally we have Only the Dregs Ami every Day the condition of the water is becoming a worse. It might be interesting to know what a analysis of the River water would show under Tho prevailing conditions. Why not have the water examined regularly so that to May know what we Are drinking a Tejad vice is especially timely in View of the outbreak of typhoid in Bloomsburg. Filter Plant rushed it is scarcely a secret that the Best results Are not being attained at the filter Plant just now owing to the dry weather which makes it difficult to keep sufficient water in the Reservoir to meet demands. The work of filtering has to be rushed to such an ext pfc that it would he surprising if All the impurities were eliminated. Prudent people therefore will Bethink themselves of the advice so often Given out at this season of the year and As a reasonable precaution will boil All the water used for drinking and culinary purposes.

Both the trolley track and the switch arc now some nine inches lower than they were before. The switch in the Yards of both the structural works Aud the Danville foundry and machine company has been lowered to conform with the new Grade of the Street changing appearance in that locality.
