A gloom of sadness was cast over Som
rset Friday night when a message an
nouncing that Dr. Robert G. Hurst had
expired at :20 o'clock at bis residence iu
Lock Haven, Pa, was received. As
noted in the Herald two weeks sco, Dr.
Furst underwent a surgical operation on
April 21st fir the relief of an arete attack
uf Kppendioitis, The Philadelphia special
ist. Dr. Montgomery, w ho ptrfoim d the
operation, declared that it was oue of the
most severe cases he bad met with in his
large practice, but he expressed the be
lief that his patient would recover. Un
foreseen complications developed soon
af.erwards, and last Tuesday night it
beca ne nerwuiry to perform another
operation, which was doue. The palieut
continued conscious up until the mo
ment dissolution took place.
Dr. Furst was a native of Clinton coun
ty. He was a brother of Mrs. Eleanor F.
Carollrcra, whose husband. Dr. J. W.
Carothors, died la this place Tuesday
uight, April lTih. He was married April
27, IS!), just one year ag. to Miss Edna,
youngest daughter of Judge and Mrs.
William J. Baer. The wedding was a
notable event, as it united one of Somer
set's cultured, refined and popular young
ladies wilh a cion of a leading Eastern
Pennsylvania family. Dr. Furst had
graduated three years prior to his mar
riage from the Medical Department of the
University o Pennsylvania, and shortly
thereafter located at Lock Haven, where
be soon succeeded in establishing a lucra
tive practice. When a student he road
for a year in the office of his brother-in-
law. Dr. Carothera, and during his .resi
dence here became well and favorably
known to many Somerset people, all of
whom felt an interest in his welfare and
waited with deepest anxiety for words of
encouragement from his bedside. When
it became known throughout the t -wn
that he had passed into tbe unknown
world, expressions of grief for the dead
physician and sympathy for the widowed
bride were beard on all sides.
Judge Baer, accompanied by his daugh
ter and son-in-law Mr. and Mrs. A. L. G.
Hay and by "Lute" Furst and Mrs.
Eleanor F. Carothera, brother and sister
of deceased, left for Lock Haven Satur

daughter, Mrs. Furst.

The ordinance prepared lv Borough
Solicitor C. V. Walker, i I Compliance
with a resolution adopted by a nnaui
inous rote of council six weeks sgo, im
posing a tax of $1.00 each on every Tele
graph, Telephone and Eiectrlo Light
pole, and J1.5C on .oh acd every mile of
wire utilized b, ut-h companies iu tbe
borough, was presented for tiual passage
at a meeting of council held Thursday
evening, when Councilman Scull moved
that the ordinance be adopted, after the
words and lines imposing a tax on wire
had been eliminated. Councilman San-
ner seconded Mr. Scull's motion, when
Councilman Ruppei moved to amend by
fixing tbe amount of tax at 50 ceuts per
pole. Mr. Ruppel's amendment was sec
onded by Councilman Winters, and on a
call for the yeaa and nays the amendment
was adopted, the vot-s of Messrs. Scull
and Sanner being tbe only ones recorded
against it. When the yeas and nays were
called for on lh4 original resolution,
which placed the tax at (1.00 per pole,
Messrs. Scull and Sanner voted yea. The
ordinance become sffective on June 1st
and should be the means of procuring
several hundred dollars annually for the
use of the borough.
Represent itives of all tbe companies
affected by the ordinance were present
and entered their protest against the pas
sage of the measure, tbe principal ad
dress being delivered by Mr. Chas. II.
t'Vsher, in behalf or the Electric Light
Coooany. Mr. Fisher pointed out that
his company would be compelled to pay
by far tbe largest proportion of tbe foods
accruing by reason of tbe pole tax, and
urged that if council was disposed to im
pose any tat at all they should make tbe
amount as small as possible.
After the ordinance had been adopted
the representatives of the Electric Light,
Telephone and Telegraph Companies all
expressed themselves as being fully sat
isfied and said that their companies
would not enter a protest against the en
forcement of tbe ordinance.
Another matter before council, in addi
tion to tbe usual routine business, were
the appeals of persons who had been
assessed by the High Constable with
keeping dogs. Ten or more persons
feeling themselves aggrieved at the notice
served upon them to plank up 1.00 to
the borougn for tbe privilege tbey en
joyed of harboring dogs appeared and
asked to be relieved of the tax. In al
most every case they disclaimed owner
ship, and alleged that the vigilant asses
sor had assessed them with canines be
longing to other parties. In this connec
tion it is not amiss to note that one 'in
dividual, who has been assessed with 18
dogs failed to appear, aod it is therefore
taken for grained that he proposed to
continue conducting a dog farm and to
pay for the privilege.

"No greater imposition upon the tax
payers reflects from the court records of

says the Philadelphia Press. "Disputes

ing tbe roof of one of tbe brick sheds.
Many of the workmen had gone home
for dinner before the fire broke out, aod
the flames had gained such beadwsy be
fore they returned that nothing could be
done to check them.
