That the latter is True however is quite evident from an article that appeared in the a Buffalo express of recent Date. The article in question credits Miller with being an extraordinary Genius and states that be was born in Danville. Pa., of Quaker parents. When he was fifteen a years of age the family removed to Belfast in Allegheny county where his father was employed As a millwright. Joseph worked with his father and Learned the Trade hut his mind wandered away from saw and grist Mills and he became a machinist and an inventor.

He invented an improvement in lathes while employed by a firm which manufactured screw stump machines.

Miss Sophia Hellner returned to Hazleton last evening after a visit with miss Teresa Ledger water Street. Miss Clara Fischer returned last evening after a trip to Philadelphia and Atlantic City no More Welcome intelligence could be conveyed to our readers than the news that the pollution of the canal and River caused by Hospital sewage so Long a menace to our town is now practically at an end. On last saturday the sewage that drained into the canal was taken up by the new disposal Plant now in full working order and in two weeks time All the sewage from the big institution will be diverted from tin River and subjected to the process of purification. A representative of tin news yesterday visited tin Hospital for the in san and was shown Over tin ground by one of the officials where the Progress of the work the plans and the operation of the Plant were studied at Short Range. The sewage disposal Plant proper complicated As it is by no Means embraces tin greater part of the work. Two enormous sewers cutting across the Lawn in front of the institution have been in course of construction pretty much All summer. The smaller of these connecting with the nurses Home was completed a month ago. The larger one draining the Hospital Pronier is at present under Way. This sewer runs parallel with tin Hospital. Work yesterday was in Progress in front of the main Entrance. At this Point the Terra Cotta pipe is Laid at a depth of seventeen feet elsewhere it was necessary to go Down Twenty two feet. An enormous Mound of Earth excavated lies at the very threshold of the administration building. In order to connect the Kitchen and the Wash House with the main sewer just described it was necessary to drive two tunnels through the Rock under the main building which at that Point is fifty two feet wide. The tunnels formed a very difficult and costly part of the work and a Large Force of men have been employed upon them for Many weeks past. Aut Matio pumps. The first Point of real interest connected with the sewage disposal system is the receiving pit or pumping station in the Ravine Between the Hospital and farm buildings. Through the two sewers above described the sewage from the entire institution is drained into the pumping pit. As it enters it passes through two grates which arrest All solids that would likly inter Fen with the operation of the machinery. Over the receiving pit a solid building of Concrete is erected. The sewage is lifted through underground pipe to the disc sisal Plant some four Hundred Yards northward by Means of three centrifugal pumps Ojo Duteil by electricity. The pumps which Are the first of the kind Ever installed in connection with sewage disposal at the Hospital operate on the principle of the dredge centrifugal pump and Are especially adapted to the work of pumping sewage by reason of the fact that solids no matter in what form Are easily manipulated. In the Brief interval that tin Plant has been in operation it has been called upon to negotiate very formidable matter no distinctively sewage and it has gotten away with it All even Large masses with evident ease. This Ilis mgt is the last Ilo uht As to whether the Plant can be kept in successful operation As pieces of bedding clothing and a great variety of articles owing to thu caprices of thu insane Are Apt to find their Way into Hospital sewage. The pumps average nine Hundred revolutions and have a capacity of 475 Gallons or minute. The pumps operate automatically. One or More pump May be pet continuously in operation. The usual method embracing tin use of floats is employed and As the flow of sewage increases or diminishes an additional pump is called into play or is thrown off. Sewage is diverted. The first pump was started up last saturday when True to the Promise of the trustees the sewage was divert a Oil from the canal. The Plant is now fully in use and a Fine Opportunity is afforded for observing its Riqie ratio. The sewage is Puni Oil from the receiving fit into try grit chamber at the filter Beds where it passes through two screens of three fourths of an Inch mesh into the primary settling Chambers three in number each sixty feet Long by sixteen feet wide and ten feet deep. From the settling chamber the liquid passes into the a a dosing chamber where it can be treated chemically if necessary As in the Case of contagion. Tin settings or solids Are removed from the Bottom of tie settling tank by Flushing or otherwise into a separate Reservoir where they Are converted into fertilizer. From the a a dosing tank thu sewage passes Lay a syphon into fifty Lour sprayers set in a filter bed composed of feet of gravel and Stone. As it is ejected from the sprayers each one of which resembles a Small Fountain thu sewage is aerated after which it filters through the Dee i bed of Stone and gravel and drains into the secondary settling tank which is the final stage of thu process. Eighty five percent pure. The affluence which is estimated to be 85 per cent pure drains into thu Little Stream nearby and is carried to the River. In its filtered state it is said to 1m quite As pure As River water above the Hospital for thu insane but the Hospital authorities have remotely in View the installation of an additional or Sand filter Wiir h will Render the effluent 95 or cent. Pure. The latter of course will have to be provided for by an additional appropriation. The sewage at present being treated embraces the administration building. Nurses Home the Kitchen and one sect Ion of the female Wing. In about two weeks time connection will be established with every part of the institution and thu pollution of the River by Hospital s wage will be a thing of the ballot when thu electors of Pennsylvania proceed to East their vote at the next election they will find themselves confronted with a Blanket Sheet the largest ballot Ever employed at any election held in this state. Thu customary specimen ballot arrived at the court House yesterday and to put it mildly it is a curiosity. Thu amendments to the Constitution to lie voted upon an responsible for thu unusual size of the ballot and they occupy probably nine tenths of the space. To he exact the Sample ballot is thirty four by Twenty two inches. At the top Are four Short columns providing for a state treasurer a a judge of thu supreme court and a judge of the court of common the last column on the right is Blank. None of these columns Are Over three inches Long. The first contains the names of the candidates for state treasurer in their places with the usual instructions for voting the second column the names of the candidates for judge of thu supreme court with instructions. The column for judge of the court of common pleas is left vacant while the last column also Blank has no designation. The rest of the Blanket Sheet is occupied by thu proposed amendments to thu Constitution Tea in number which Art to be voted on. Each amendment in order to make it explicit is printed out very fully tin lines in Plain Type running Clear across the ballot. At the right of each amendment is a Block of four squares. Two of these bordering on the text contain respect i ively thu words a a yes and adjoining these on the right Are two Blank squares. An x marked in thu Square at the right of the word a yes indicates a vote for the amendment. A similar x marked in the Square at the right of the word not indicates 1 a vote against the amendment. At the Bottom of the ballot is a 1 pro posed schedule for thu 1 amendments which Are to be voted on in thu same manner. The proposed amendments which were printed Anil Given a wide circulation throughout the state Are pretty generally understood by voters. As set Forth on the ballot they Are very Plain and those who have neglected to read up on thu subject will have no difficulty in getting at their True meaning.

The country will be glad to hear of increasing demands for Berry scale. State zoologist surface Harrisburg has had his attention called to the prevalence this year of a White scale on Raspberry Hughes which has done much damage. In replying to one correspondent who stated that a number of his Raspberry stalks were killed by the scale professor surface said this jux St is known As the Rose scale and is sometimes called the Raspberry scale. It does not attack Trees but it is quite injurious to Rose Bushes and Raspberry Bushes. It is to be killed by a Good Contact insecticide such As can be used successfully for san Jose scale. I have friends who have entirely cleaned it up in their Fields by the thorough use of the Lime Sulphur Wash Spray. I should use either the commercial Lime Sulphur Wash diluted one to eight or the Home boiled using the formula of seventeen Jim ads of Sulphur and Twenty two of Lime boiled together one hour with enough water to boil and then sufficient water added to make fifty Gallons supplying most of the water after boiling. A this is the regular Lime Sulphur Wash As prepared for san Jose scale. It is intended Only for dormant plants or. In other words to be applied when the leaves Are off but it can be used on la trunks of Trees Anil the stems of raspberries and roses where it does not get on the new growth of this year nor on the leaves. You can apply if to All parts of the tree above ground save those which have grown tills year. It can be applied with a paint Brush but it will be quicker and More economical to use a Spray pump and a More thorough Job can be done. A a instead of spraying the old Raspberry canes for scale at this time of year i recommend cutting them out and burning them at once. This gets rid of a great Many a its. The canes have already done their duty by bearing fruit and it will give More room fur new stalks to develop. Ii would be excellent practice to Cut and Burn old Raspberry and Blackb Rry Bushes As soon As the fruit is gathered. You would not Only kill insect jests hut also destroy disease germs. To get the Best possible results one should have a hot Brush tire built u pm which the newly Cut stalks could be thrown even burning them before they Wilt if All the jux a its Are to lie destroyed. If some of lie Young insects escape to the new canes they will not multiply rapidly enough to prove serious Anil this fall after the leaves have dropped Yon can Spray the stalks thoroughly with the Lime Sulphur Wash just the same As for san Jose Farewell party.
