It is no doubt a very unpleasant and humiliating experience to come to grief in this Way. It re Mains for the town of Shamokin to afford instance in which an automobile owner knows How to be philosophical even Good natured under the circumstances.

Heir to $50, x 0, death ent off his knowledge of it and Joe Glye Niser better known As Joe Whitehead was buried in the potters Field at Shamo Kiu. The Many a dead body was discovered thursday morning last in the Luke Fidler Colliery. Friendless and Perii less he was cared for by the Shamokin poor Hoard. Scarcely a week later comes the news that a family of 1 Springfield who often befriended him a during Bis forlorn existence has received word that lie is heir to $50,000. When Joe was a lad ten or twelve years his father John Glye Niser. An Iron worker in this City secured a Good offer to go to Mexico and work in a smelter. Joe smother went too but the boy was wayward and would not go with them. On the Day they were to depart he ran away Ami then his parents gone began his lifelong tramp role. John Glye Niser amassed a considerable Fortune by a Lucky investment in Copper mines and left All to his wife. The woman a death made the tramp who breathed his last in the pump House heir to a moderate Fortune but by the time attorneys had located him at Shamokin it was too late for him to enjoy it. Paniaqua not satisfied. Tam Aqua owns her own water works and yet she is not entirely Happy if the evening courier of that town knows what it is talking about. It complains that the Reservoir is full of muck and filth and that the Council instead of taking Steps to have the situation remedied has simply appointed a committee to look about. The courier declares that Tam Aqna a owes to the people to keep the water Supply Puie Aud Clear from extraneous substances. The sediment which is found in the water the courier fears if Analysed. 44 won id be found to consist of substances highly deleterious to the Public health. A so far As water supplies go Danville has the Host in the state. Chester a idea.

Hand instruments arrive. The instruments for the new hand at Exchange have arrived. They Are of the finest make and material and the musicians Are justly proud. The firs practice under the Able direction of Brof. Turbotville took place tuesday evening. September court. On next monday september court will Convene in this City. The term carries with it Especial the Case of Commonwealth is. Peter Dietrich in which the jury disagreed in june will come up for second trial. Dietrich has passed through quite an ordeal since the first trial. He has Hud almost four months of close confinement during tie hottest season of the year in addition to which he has had thu heavy Burden of suspense to withstanding he has borne up bravely and seems in Good condition to stand tie second trial. In addition to the Dietrich murder Case there is another homicide Case that of Commonwealth is. Clarence Carr the boy who is accused of pushing another lad George Fausnaught into tie old soaking pit at the steel Plant with the result that the latter boy was drowned. He likewise Lias spent the Long interim in jail. The Commonwealth cases Are Only about a dozen in number and include in addition to the above one in which the charge is perjury. The rest Are Only trivial in their nature. The civil list contains the two Fleishman trespass cases which Promise to become unique in the history of Montour county court. They have been dragging along for Many years and there is Little probability that they will he tried at the next term. One of the cases is Simon Fleishman is. Paul p. Swetek and the other Simon Fleish Man is. Michael Breckbill sheriff of Montour county. The Case is remarkably entangled and the task of meting out Justice to the several Jia ties involved will be a task that will give the court plenty to do. Simon Fleishman who owned a Stock of dry goods had a difference with or. Swetek who owned the building in which the store was kept. The sheriff in the performance of his duties became involved. Meanwhile the Stock of goods representing Many Hundred dollars is stored in the sheriffs office in the court House which gives that sedate apartment somewhat the appearance of a cheap clothing store. In All the years in which the cases have been feud aug the Mot i and dust have left their Trace of the clothing which Are now probably Only Worth a fraction of what they were when moved from the store to the sheriffs office. Underwent operation. Mrs. Charles Shires sr., of Strawberry Ridge underwent an operation at the Williams it Ort Hospital yesterday morning word from the Hospital last evening was to the effect that the operation had been most successful Edward a minors of Roherstown Montgomery county was recently found guilty of polluting the Schuylkill River by having the sewage from Bis manufacturing Plant discharged therein a motion for a new trial has been overruled. Ii Arthur is. Smith of upper Marlborough Maryland departed this life at 9 10 o clock saturday right at tie Home of Lafayette Sechler Kipps Kun. This death is one of the Saddest that has taken place in this Vicinity in a Long time. Tie deceased who was a Nephew of mrs. Sechler came North about the first of july to spend his school vacation.

Smith the father is a native of this place but for some 20 years Lias resided at Marlborough where he holds the office of Register of wills. Arthur was 19 years of age.

Goodrich Post receives invitation the commander Aud members of Uoo Drioli Post no. 22, g. A. R., have received an invitation to participate in tie dedicatory exercises of the state Capitol at Harrisburg. The communication was read at tie last meeting of the Post of monday night but no further action was taken at that time owing to tie pressure of other business. The invitation will be taken up at the next meeting monday night. Meah Wiiilie the members will decide whether or not they want to attend. Unquestionably a fair proportion of the Post will want to be present at so distinguished an event Aud those who go will attend in a body. The Honor is highly appreciated by the Post Aud it is pretty certain that the action taken late will show lie gratitude of the members. J company of 12th regiment n. O. P., last week was notified that it had been designated As one of the two companies to represent the twelfth regiment at the dedication of the Capitol on thursday october 4th. A record breaker. Yesterday considering the time of year seemed to be a record breaker for heat Aud general discomfort. Every one was heard to Register some sort of a protest. Tie employees of the Mills Ami foundries had an especially hard time of it. Mercury nearly reached the 90 Mark during tie afternoon and Low temperature continued during the right. Formerly tie nights were Cool but now even that Comfort Lias been taken away from is. People generally Are hoping for rain which naturally would inaugurate different weather conditions. Carelessness or 1gnoranoe moved by tie Stern facts of history the Scranton times declares a today some one will be killed on one of tie local railroads while walking on the tracks probably a girl will be burned to death from pouring Oil into a lighted lamp or into a stove to Start a Are. It is an exceptional Day when some foolish Man or woman does not attempt Oue of the above reckless and dangerous it is indeed. None in Danville ? the Oil pity blizzard makes the astounding statement that there a Are men in Oil City who never buy a newspaper never read Oue unless there is a marriage or death in their family or some one tells them there is something in it about them. They Are much More to be pitied than censured a a of course there Are no such benighted souls in Danville
