' Estill continues unabated. Yesterday
; lltero was another i:ac reported, and
".one 'of scarletlnn.
"".-TuWlfiW ot tho notion prevailing that
'nicasles Is 11 harmless disease, and un-
- dor that mistaken belief mnny parents
needlessly expose the children to It,
j the board of trade of this city has
; thought It wine at this time, when the
' ' disease haw become so prevalent her",
; to Issue a note of warning. Following
, nn found a few farts as to Its dun-
Korous tendencies and a few simple
. precautionary measures and advice as
to treat It. These are culled from n
. pamphlet Issued by the state board of
Measles Is an eruptive, contagious
dlsfuse most common In childhood. It
Is of such universal provalance and
'the attacks nro often so mild that It
has come to bo looked upon as a dis
ease which Is dangerous neither to life
or health. This view Is, however, en
tirely erroneous, death or permanent
injuries to the body often resulting
from the disease. More than 10.000
persons die annually from mcasle3 In
Great Britain. It killed, In other words,
about twice as many persons as scar
let, typhoid, typhus and other fever
and Bmallpox, all put together. In the
city of Pittsburg, for the twelve years
preceding 1894, the average number of
deaths from measles was eighty-three.
This would give an average annual
mortality for thlstate of 2.075. But
It is not because of tha deaths alone
that measles la a dangerous disease.
It often leaves the eyes, ears, bowels,
respiratory passages and the lungs in
a weakened and dangerous condition.
Impaired eyes and ears often date
from an attack of measles. There is
wood reason for believing that measles
may leave children predisposed to con
sumption of the lungs and bowels. It
is because of these facts that the state
board of health has published a cir
cular, berievlng that many Uvea and
much suffering may be saved by fol
lowing its teachings.

The Lookout Crossing at Pike Street
the Scene of Another Accident.
Frank O'Hyrne, agpil 111, son f
Frank P. O'Byrne, a miner, of Tli Pike
street, is the latest victim of the rail
road crossing at the Lookout, on Plko
street. On Sunday night, while the
lad was walking avross the tracks lie
observed a coal train pulling in from
the south and started to run, so as
not to be hold up. He did not sou
another train approaching ut a high
rate of speed, going toward Scranton.
Several passersby saw it, however,
and shouted to him. He stopped on
the track on hearing the warning and
the pilot of the rushing train struck
him, tossed him In the air and would
have hit him again hnd it not been
for the intereforence of a young man,
who ran toward him ar. he was
struck. This hero made a grab at
O'Hyrne, caught his coat and pulled
him to one side. It was a miraculous
saving of his life, for ho would have
fallen under the wheels had it not
been for the young hero.
O'Hyrne was picked up unconscious,
wilh his face covered with blood ami
a. gaping wound over tho loft eye. He
was taken to his home and tn physi
cian called. The doctor found that
theve was a fracture of the skull and
teh hospital ambulance was sent for.
At Emergency hospital, Dr. Glllis
and Niles trepanned the skull suc
cessfully. Inquiry there last evening
elicited tho information that Frank is
getting nlong splendidly and the pros

A NEW CITY HOSPITAL?
A Number of Carbondale Physicians
nnd Some from Scranton Are Con
. sideling It.
There may be a new hospital In this
city before winter ends. Indefinite
minora have been spreading In medical
circles In this vicinity for the past few
days that a number of city physicians
have boon talking seriously ot starting
one. Tho plans have thus tnr been suc
cessfully kept secret, but the details ot
the proposed move have been given to
The Tribune by a city physician and
as they tiro sure to prove of great In
terest to tho citizens as well as tfce
medical fraternity, we publish them.
At tho meeting of tho directors ot
the Cnt'hondale Hmcrgency hospital,
held In October, a reorganization of the
niedleiil and surgical staff was decided
upon, and In place of the twelve cltv
and five outside physicians on monthl?"
assignments, a regular staff of four
was made permanent, all city doctors,
viz.. Drs. Alexander F. Glllis. John
Nlles, David W. Halley and W. W.
Fletcher. At the same tlmo all city
physicians and those from this locality
were invited to place their private pa
tients in the hospital upon the same
terms and with the same privileges us
were heretofore accorded a llmlteu
number of practitioners. It was an-,
nou need that each day, between the
hours of l and 111 In the forenoon the
entire staff would be In attendance.
Notwithstanding this placating offer
of tho hospital dlrectorsthere was a
feeling among' a large number of the
physicians in this city that they had
not been justly treated. There were
quite a few who felt aggrieved because
they considered they had not been denlt
with fairly in being summarily dis
placed from the medical staff of the
hospital and its privileges. Some of
these have been asking what they could
do to make their displeasure manifest,
and nfter a number of discussions
among them it was decided to boj-cott
the Kmergency hospital as much as
possible. As It was quite evident that
tills boycott could not bo'effectlve In
many cases, additional dlscusslonswere
held among these physicians nnd It was
suggested that the proper and only way
to render the boycott a strict one was
to establish another hospital in this
city and place tho patients of the doe
tors not on the Emergency's staff In
this new hospital. A meeting was held
at the Hotel American one evening last
week, which was attended by four city
physicians, leaders In the boycott move
ment, and four Scranton physicians.
Ways and means were discussed at this
gathering, and it was decided then to
look around In a central portion of the
city for a suitable location on which to
build or to lease.
Since the meeting several property
holders have been approached and
terms asked. A line property on Spring
street, which could easily bo made suit
able for hospital purposes, was yester
duy offered to the promoters of this
movement for 11 very reasonable figure,
nnd if the doctors who are agitating
the project enrry out their proposed
plans there will In all probability be
another city institution devoted to the
care of the sick in readiness to receive
patients before spring.
Deferred Opening Evenings.
Tho merchants of this city did not
follow their usual custom this year of
keeping their stores open evenings for
the three weeks preceding Christmas,
ft was expected up to n late hour yes
terday afternoon to commence last
night, but about 1 o'clock a number of
the leading members of the Merchants'
association took a canvass of the city
stores to ascertain the sentiment in
regard to deferring the" evening work
for another week. The sentiment was
so universal to keep closed after 6.30
p. 111. that the reform was Inaugurated
last night. The stores will now go dark
o' nights until Saturday, and after that
until Chiistmns they will all bo open.
The Merchants' association held their
regular monthly meeting last evenlg
at which this early closing movement
