As things stand now it is almost impossible to make a trip across the River without the Flat boat getting fast upon a Rock Aud causing a Long delay. Even the naphtha launches went out of commission yesterday owing to the Low water. Unless the River takes a Rise the county commissioners will blast Oue of the Large rocks which lies in the of the ferry and causes Tho most trouble. Tho county commissioners at their next meowing will also in All probability decide to install electric Light at the Landing on Tho South Side. Some Bighorn. Probably the largest corp Ever raised ill Montour of duty was grown this Sumiller by George stranger 011 John r. Benet to a farm. Tie common run of ears Are considerably Over one foot in length. Two of the larger ears were sent into this office yesterday and they measured respectively fifteen and sixteen inc Hes in length. They Are of Tho a eight Row yellow variety Aud Are perfectly formed the full number of grains being present Aud nil Well formed Secretary Bard resigns. The Many friends of s. M. Bard state Secretary of the Young menus Christian association will undoubtedly he surprised to learn that to has resigned his position and will move to Wilk Sbarro. Or. Bard Lias held this position for a number of years and has made a very off Lieut officer Aud under his administration the association has made wonderful Progress. His successor has not As yet been elected and the in Sittou is being filled by or. Buckalew who has had charge of Tho Railroad unlucky Job printing the Ohice of the american being furnished with a Large assortment of Job letter and fancy Type and Job material generally the publisher announces to the Public that he is prepared at All times to execute in the neatest manner Job printing of All kinds and description George Ohley a lineman connected with tie Danville and Bloomsburg Street railway company met with a terrible fall monday night As the result of which it was necessary to remove him to the Hospital for treatment. Ohley and a companion it appears were sleeping at Richard s Lime Kiln near Grovania. When the companion awoke yesterday morning lie was surprised to find Schley missing. He called for him but received to response. Much mystified he went to a House nearby Aud asked for assistance in instituting a search. Below the Kiln Ohley was found in an us conscious state having taken a sheer drop of Twenty four feet Landing on a hard Rock Bottom. The Man was married under one of the shed connected with the Lime Kiln and or. S. Thompson of this pity was called. Ohley was still in a dazed or Semi conscious state although he could occasionally be roused to consciousness. In one of these intervals he explained that he had fallen from the top of the Kiln. Alongside his head was Abad Rontu Sion. While elsewhere about his body were bruises of greater or less severity although singularly enough the Man escaped broken Bones. Or. Thompson was not Clear whether Schley a condition was due to tie terrible fall or Tho effects of Coal Gas inhaled from the Lime Kiln while sleeping. He rather thought it was due to the latter Aud expected to see him recover in a Short time. The injured Man was removed to Stouges hotel where later in Tho Day he was seen by or. Phillips of whose advice to was removed to the Williamsport Hospital 00 the 4 of Clook p. Amp r. Passenger train. The two men came to the Limo Kiln in the evening and finding the place warm and Plo Arsaut Lay Down and Wero soon asleep. The supposition is that during the night Ohley overcome by the Gas Rose to his feet and in a dazed Cou Dilou wandered along until he came to the Edge where lie fell Over. The injured lineman has been especially unfortunate in his time. A few years ago lie fell from a High pole and fact Rod both legs just above the Ankles. A Fine drop of weeds. Thu abandoned grave Yard on Bloom Street has responded nicely to the Fine growing conditions this year and has produced probably the biggest crop of weeds in its history. During angst in former years the weeds were cot Down which improved its appear Auoe somewhat As autumn came on but this year it seems the old grave Yard was forgotten and the ape Ranee presented is quite dispiriting. But Little has been Beard of Lato concerning the proposition to present the abandoned cemetery to the Borough to be used As a Public Park and a site for the prospective soldiers Monument. Council is probably too Busy just now looking after the various municipal improvements to give the matter tie necessary attention. The proposition meets with popular approval and the cemetery will probably be in Possession of the Borough by the time the soldiers Monument is completed. The Large Maple on Oruro i Street. The Large Maple tree on Church Street in front of tie property of mrs. Rebecca Sidler was trimmed by George Gardner yesterday. The tree one of the finest old landmarks in Danville had grown to enormous proportions its trunk being for feet in diameter and its wide spreading branches extending nearly across the Street. High Constable b. B. Brown is authority for the statement that the tree was planted in 1842 Aud that he assisted in setting it in the ground. For some time past the tree has been considered unsafe during High winds and the trimming was decided upon merely As a precaution against avoid ent. Each of the limbs was sawed off close and after the process of trimming was Over yesterday there was scarcely a vestige of Green anywhere about Tho tree. Setting Back the poles. Superintendent West of Tho Standard electric Light company with a Force of men was engaged yesterday in moving Back some of the Large poles on Mill Street to make room for the resetting of the Enrby. A Good Many of these poles although owned by the flight company Are used both by that concern and tie Telephone company. It is necessary to remove the poles Back Only a foot or so hut owing to their depth in the ground in effecting the change a Good Deal of the sidewalk is unavoidably torn up. Repairing Crossings. Tho p. Amp r. Railway company is repairing its several Crossings in the Borough. Those at Center and other streets West have already received attention while a Large Quantity of brushed Stone Lias been unloaded at Bloom Street preparatory to beginning work at that crossing. Tho ties will be replaced with new ones and there will he a general tilling up about the spot All of which will improve things Verv Sincli. During tie month or so past owing to several cases of fever reported our water Supply has been regarded with some suspicion As it is Well known that the sewage of the Hospital for the insane drains Iton tie River but a mile or so above the intake at tie water works. All doubts however Cau now be put to rest As the River Wator has been Analysed and so far As the typhoid fever germ is concerned is found to be pure Aud healthful. Many persons became apprehensive of an epidemic Aud they thought that the City owed it As a duty to its inhabitants to have the water Analysed to the end that if pure All doubts might be put to rest Aud if impure the proper precautions might be taken to Ward off disease. A couple of weeks ago or. Stock took a trip to Baltimore Aud without doubting the purity of our filtered water to Settle All controversy Betook a specimen of it along with him anti had it Analysed by the department of Public safety of that City. In a letter just received by or. Stock he is informed that the specimen of water lie furnished is pronounced by the City pathologist As Good for drinking purposes. No typhoid Bacilli were found. The geography of the far East it going to give the schoolchildren Trou ble pretty soon. Duties of supervisors. An exc Iange says As one of the excuses for not keeping tie roads in their townships in repair some supervisors plead poverty declaring that there is to Money in their bands to pay for the necessary work. But the courts have decided that this is an insufficient excuse. If a Public Road is in bad condition Aud the township does not have the necessary Money with which to make repairs the Law provides that supervisors May Levy a special tax to cover the contemplated expense. This fact should be understood by supervisors and make Thorn More energetic in the performance of their Loties. Supervisors should be men who take enough interest in their duties to keep themselves informed upon the Legal requirements of their position. A supervisor May be handed into court Aud fined for to keep the roads under his supervision in Good repair As was done with Ono supervisor in Blair county recently. If tie supervisors were to acquaint themselves with the provisions of the Road Laws they would be More competent to perform their dates. And with tie new interest that is being taken in Good reads movement the uninformed supervisor is Likely to get himself into serious trouble citizens of townships who have complained tor years against the bad condition of the Public roads should also understand their rights under the Law. A knowledge of the Law would show them that they Are not at the mercy of the supervision and while the strict enforcement of the Law May Cost the taxpayers More than at present this extra expense will not be Felt if the roads shall be maintained in Good condition. It is Likely that there will de a Lively Stiring up of supervisors in All parts of the state in the near future. Trout Outlook most favourable.
