NEWS OF THIS VICINITY
Prank Hawke Is home from Philadel
Mr. and Mrs. Fred B. Killer, of Cnr-
bondnle, will take their Christmas din
ner at the Methodist Episcopal par
sonage. The proposed new bridge to span
Tunkhannockcreek, near T. O. Walter's
residence, will doubtless be of Iron and
a modern and creditable structure. The
abutments will have to be entirely re
built, as the old ones are of loose,
shelly, red shale, and the wonder Is that
the old bridge has stood as long as It
has. The courts have not yet passed
upon the new bridge, but as It Is such
an obvious necessity, there is no doubt
but that it will be granted.

Some of the residents of Church
street were greatly worried 011 Satur
day and Sunday over a case of diph
theria with which a young lady named
Eva Parfrey was afillcted. The father
and brother of' the young lady are
boarding on Church street and she
came to visit them from a hotel In Car-
bondale. She was 111 when she came
here and Dr. Van Doren was summoned
to attend to her. He found that the
young lady was suffering from a mild
form of diphtheria and so Informed the
family with whom she was staying.
They had such a fear of the disease
that It was considered best to remove
the patient from the house, and Bhe was
taken to the borough building, where
she was cared for during Sunday. Some
of the people living near the borougji
building objected to Its being used as a
hospital and called on the burgess to
have the patient removed somewhere
else. Before he could take action on
the case the father of the lady came for
her and took her to the home of a rela
tive somewhere up the valley.
