The honors of thu game Are divided by Coveleskie and Livengood. Thu Premier pole had his curves breaking just to suit him. He duplicated his record of saturday by striking out 13 batsmen. Seven hits la allowed them but their Biugos were so scattered afternoon game. Tin afternoon game was easier to take but caused not a Whit loss Joy in thu hearts of thu crowd that overflowed grand stand and bleachers.

To Mistou carries much massive paraphernalia which was used last evening in several Beautiful illusions. Much Charm was added to thu evenings entertainment by thu up to a Lato and Well Romle red music of thu Miles Fon in a it orchestra. Money for state Highway thu news comes from the state Highway department to lit some sixteen thousand dollars Are. Immediately available for the reconstruction of roads in Montour county under the act of june 8, 1907 further it is apparent that the state Highway it be Parnu it would like to see this Money applied to the reconstruction of Road in Valley township where state Highway has been applied for. There is no likelihood that anything in the Way of Road construction will be done any More this so Ason. By next year four thousand dollars additional will be available sufficient to Complete four or five Miles of Highway. Valley township Lias two applications in one for the Road leading from the a a Forks toward Jerseytown and the other for the Road leading from the Mausdale hotel toward Washingtonville. Either of these roads Touhl prove a valuable Extension of thu state Highway already constructed by tween Danville and a Mausdale. Most people however would probably favor the Extension a a a the Road As it would be pushing the reconstruction of Road in thu direction of the state a Highway that is being built from Milton eastward making it possible in a few years to it have the two towns of Danvila and Milton conus Ctet a with a Macadam Road. Neither Montour county nor Mahoning township has As yet settled with thu state for thu Highway built North of thu Borough. Each has withheld payment of thu greater part of its portion on the ground that the Road was not constructed according to specifications. Thu state however assumes that thu Road is All right Ami there seems Little doubt but that both the county and the township will have to its allotted share. Indeed the state is already getting even with the county by withholding the Money due thu county from to lug state to reimburse it for the expense of holding primary elections. There is Little doubt but that the state will Farrl or to Ftp thu its to obtain Money due it from the townships when sail Money is withheld. Whether these complications will prevent the state Highway department from taking up Road construction in Montour county at this time is not known. But since thu state is in the position to get what it wants in the premises any policy that would antagonize the authorities Wou lil so pm to to unwise. If a full settlement were made with thu state thu Only i possible obstacle in the Way of getting what is wanted in the Way of Road a reconstruction would be removed. Now for the usual september warm wave. Real estate changes George d. Edmondson has purchased thu tract of vacant ground of East Market Street both ring on thu canal and just West of thu East end Mission.
