ROUGH GAME AT NORMAL.
Much class rivalry has been
diown in the inter-class series of
basket ball games, and it was
brought to a climax Monday morn
ing, when the Senior and Middler
teams met in the gymnasium to
play off a tie for Erst place.
The game was fast and rough.
Shortly before the end of the sec
ond half the score stood 21-15 in
favor of the younger class, when an
accident brought an end to the
game. Sharadin '09. Girton'io,
and the ball got into a tnixup, the
result of which was that Girton's
face collided with Sharadin's foot,
causing the breaking of six teeth
iu the mouth and a broken nose.
The referee put Sharadin out of
the game for roughuess, whereupon
the seniors refused to continue the
play. The game was therefore for
feited, and awarded to the middlers
with the score 2-0.
PLENTY OF WATER.
The rain on Sunday and Monday
caused a lot of trouble for some
people. The melting of the great
amount of ice and snow on the
ground filled up every watercourse,
from the town gutters to the Sus
qudnnna, and made things gener
ally sloppy. Several cellars were
flooded notably that of the drum
room of the Magee Carpet Works,
causing a suspension of work on
The river and Fishing Creek
were bank full.
Wilkes-Barre, Sunbury, and oth
er places along the river have been
more or less threatened, the lo.v
lands being inundated.

tery. MILK WAGON SPILLED.
Richard Fruit, of Hemlock town
ship, was on his way to Blooms
burg Monday morning to deliver
milk and cream to his customers.
While driving aloug the back creek
road, the burr came off the front
wheel. The resulting sudden list
to port scared the horse, which
started to run, but it. was soon
stopped by the capsizing of the
craft, which resulted in the spilling
of the cargo.
Had it not been f?r clumps of
bushes, the whole outfit would
have gone into the creek. As it
was, the wagon was damaged and
the horse bruised.
