I. Universal Reg at the Gourd adopted by the Board of director. Ibero Are few a in a in i i Avo a a a a a Visioned in o ibo of town to some time i i a a a a a closing of the y. I it \. Which was decided no of a it Iio a ii us a of the Board of directors on i be Dax night of last week. Many think hat measure should be adopted to Are a a the Public to a souse of its re Ity Ami Endeavor to keep this helpful and Beneficent institution open. 1 aborting under a feeling of tin soil Pine Street lutheran Tehurel. Minday last took up an Impromptu collection for the y. M. J. A. Which amounted to $119 this is certain a very praiseworthy in the Pine treet co Grega on and shows a degree of Zeal and ii Beia to which will not be la it St sight of As an example. 1 lie Hoard of directors however have no Hope of overcoming the obstacle before them and will carry out their intention of suspending y m j. A. Work in Danville until All indebtedness is wiped it and the institution is again on its feet. The deficiency As shown by the statement is $1,300. It is not known however. That $750 of this Ever growing indebtedness has been assumed by the Boa d of directors. This show the strained condition of the flounces in a Strong Light and ought to just Fly the bord in the course it Lias taken. No one could be found who would attempt to underrate the y. M. A. A a la tor for Good. Nevertheless the fact remains that a Large proportion of those who profit directly from the y. M. U. A. A those who have sons in every Day at to dance who share in the advantages of the institution along i various lines do Little and in Many absolutely nothing for its support. Thus while there Are in Danville some 2000 families the y. M a. A. Has on it list but 100 regular contrib Ute a is a Cirii Nonnce which would indicate lamentable Lack of appreciation or Mill. Rence somewhere. It is hoped that a hiring the period the y. M. C. A. Is closed those n u m idler ent May be brought to realize what they have lost. It will no doubt come borne Prett forcibly to some a if them when they it be their son now secure behind the Friendly a Loor of the y. M.

It would not be surprising if after some months or a year with the institution closed a i citizens would arise to a full appreciation of their duty in the matter Ami decide to tender the proper support. Justice j. P. Bare s decision. Justice of the peace j. P. Bare rendered a a decision monday in the Caselt of Commonwealth is. Associate judge Franklin g. Blee. The charge in this Case which was Given a hearing wednesday last it will he remembered was assault and Battery George a Dens Berger being prosecutor. The Justice adjudged the defendant not guilty and placed the costs--$10.s9 a upon the prosecutor. In Bis opinion Justice Bare states that he fails to Lind sufficient evidence to convince him a that judge Blee wilfully carelessly and w Ith malice drove into Densberger a also As to the altercation resulting there from he hesitates to place the blame upon the defendant. He cites that Densberger stopped in the Public Road walked Lifty feet or More to the Mill and went up stairs to the second Story to find the defendant which would leave it a grave question whether or not the prosecutor did not provoke an assault and Battery. Had Densberger believed himself entitled to damages he could have recovered them by process of words for Danville. The Lewisburg chronicle in speaking of the k. 4. E. Reunion Here on labor Day says citizens of Danville did themselves proud on this Day. The town belonged to the eagles As it were and we doubt if they Ever visit 1 a place where they received better treatment. Special mention should be made of the members of the Friendship fire department who Hall open House All Day serving lunch to All eagles who were members of their Home tire companies.
