in taking action against the planting j
within the borough limits of any |

trouble with the roots of such trees '
entering and clogging the sewer I
pipes of the system.
Recently in one street a root from ,
one of the poplar trees ran across :
a street, entered a lateral sewer pipe
and was about to creep into the main '
sewer when borough workmen dis- j
covered and removed it.
Complaints received from residents j
of another street led Borough Man- )
ager of tilities J. Hase Mowcry, who |
has recommended the adoption of an i
ordinance prohibiting the planting of 1
poplar trees, to make an investiga- |
tion in that street, and he discovered j
that the trouble there was poplar!
roots. The sewer in the street was
opened at three places, and at each
opening masses of roots were re
moved from the sewer. The largest
of these masses required a horse to
extricate it.
When it was found by borough I
workmen, they experienced difficulty
in removing it and finally had to
secur e a horse, which they hitched
to the roots. The horse, too, had
difficulty in pulling the tangled mass
out of the sewer. This bunch of roots j
n easured forty-two feet in length.)

Evangelist at Lemoyne Re
vival Also Claims Girls Start
Down From Dance Hall
Lemoyne, Pa., March 10. —The Le
moyne Church of Christ is conduct
ing a revival which is attracting large
crowds and gives promise of becom
ing the greatest meeting in the his
tory of the church. It is being held
under the "auspices of the Mingca
Evangelistic Company, which con
ducted a like campaign in Lemoyne
tlve years ago and resulted in the
present church building.
William John Mingcs is the chief!
evangelist of the party and is ue-!
companted by five talented singers]
and personal workeis.
Three services were held yesterday
and a number of converts were made.
The afternqpn service was for wom
en only and a largo crowd listened
while the evangelist told them of
their'faults. He struck hard at the
dance and said that Eva Booth,
Francis E. Willard and Clara Barton
had declared that 85 per cent, of the
fallen girls with whom they had
talked had testified with their own
lips that they had tfieir start down-]
ward on the ballroom floor. He also!
condemned the community dance and I
told of the testimony of a soldier in I
one of his recent meetings, who said!
that in his opinion the community]
dance was doing moie harm to thei
soldier than drink and asked the!
Christian mothers to be careful how]
they support it. "Men are what their
mothers make them," he declared. |
"Many of our gamblers are born so. i
because their mothers were gamblers 1
before them."
In shattering the double'standard,
he stated that there were ten fallen
men to every falleh woman and that
if a line was to be drawn by society I
against the woman who lives in sin ]
that line must also be drawn against [
the man.
Xo services will be held to-night, I
but to-morrow night his subject will j
be "Knockers." Mrs. Minges and Mr.
Jarman will both sing. .
