Fellow farmer, says a Grange writ

eveu for a moment this hot aud busy

feel that there is still room for furth
er progress? Yon live in an ideal com
munity, iudeod.if you find your social
status aud your educational facilities
all that can be desired.if your iucome
is your full measure of the works

what you use of other men's labor, it
yoor taxes are only yoor just share of
the burdens of government aud you
reoeive due recognition in tho polit

they ought to be, does not duty call
upon you to do what you can to help
to make them right? That man is liv

not feel a desire to leave his lortion

be, better thau he found it. lu most

your fellows yon may do much. A

Mr. West on behalf of the County
Commissioners while at Harrisburg al
so made some inquiries concerning the
Maryland Construction Company,
which has the coutraot for building

missioner George Statler on long dist
ance 'phone oalled np the Maryland
Coustruution Compauy, whose offices

that it will be here on the ground next
Monday to begin work.
Tho rumor current that tho con
st ruction Company contemplates bring
ing a crew of colored men here to
build the road which has caused
a good deal of dissatisfaction among
our citizens was found to be nufound

struction Company informed Mr. Stat

men along aud wherever possiblo
would employ laborers who reside in
Danville or vicinity.
Bain Prevents Bay Making.
The frequent showers, while vorv
beneficial in their way, are causing a
great deal of worry to the farmers, who
are now in the midst of haymaking.
With rain every day it is impossible
to get a field of hay dry aud the result
is that what happeus to be cut is
pretty sure to spoil. Many farmers
either postpone haymaking altogether,
or they cut down only small patches
at a time. In either event haymaking
is much delayed.
The beneficial effeots of the moist
weather is seen in the refreshed and
thriving vegetation. Corn, potatoes
and other lato crops are especially
benefitted and are growing rapidly.
Low water on the river attending the !
drought lately prevailing has given
place to a much better current so that |
the ferry uiakes tolerably good time i
in passing backwards and forwards, j
while the launches are able to avoid
the rocks without much difficulty. (

Some very entertaining facts and
figures ate gleaned at the County Com
missioners' office this year from the
tabular statement prepared for the
Seoretary of Internal affairs.
In the first plaoe it might interest
some persona to know that there are
3332 horses in Uontour County with
an assessed value of $118,907. Danville
has 314 horses valued at $11,745 ; Wash
ingtonville has 29 horses, valoed at
Uontour County has 2.02 ft head of
neat oattle with a given value of $40,-
968. Aooording to the statement there
are only twelve cows in the Borongh
of Danville, distributed as follows:
First ward 7 head; Seoond Ward, 4
head; Third Ward, one head. In the
Fonrth Ward there are no oows assess
Washingtonville has seven cows,
whioh seems a very large number com
pared with last year, when there was
only one oow assessed in that boroogh.
Some idea of valuation will be ob
tained from the following figures. The
one oow in the Third Ward is valued
at |35. The two in the Foartli Ward
are valued at (95 and the seven head
in the First Ward at $97.
It is the item of dogs, however,that
affords the most food for reflection. Ac
cording to the assessors' return* there
are just 1,008 dogs in Uontonr Ooun
ty, distributed as follows: Anthony
township, 131; 000per,49; Boroogh of
Danville 346; Derry.llß; Liberty, 156;
Limestone, 64; Mahoning township,
86; May berry, 37; Valley, 76; West
Hemlook, 45; Washingtonville, 30.
The 346 dogs in Danville are distrib
uted through the wards as follows;
First Ward, 70; Second Ward, 74;
Third Ward, 40; Fourth Ward, 63.
In Mahoning township, where the
assessor this year found only 86 dogs
last year there were 135 dogs. In the
Fourth Ward of the Boroogh in which
last year only 38 dogs were assessed
this year the assessor returned 63.
The latter figures strike one very
oddly. Perhaps the corresponding de
crease and Increase can be aooounted
for on the assumption that a number
of canines in the township preferring
town life decided to emigrate and
orossed the line into the Borongh.
Combination is Formed.
Although Senator B. K. Focht, of
Lewisburg, still insists that he will
be renominated by the Republican
oonferees of the Union-Snyder-North
umberland district, his political ad
herents in the distriot iiave given up
Focht's competitors, Dr. Peroival
Herman, of and ex-Rep
resentative Fred A. Oodcharles, of
Milton, have formed a combination
that it is doubtful if Fooht oan break,
even if Senator Penrose and the other
state maohine managers should come
out in the open for him.
Herman has agreed that his con
ferees shall vote for Oodoharles when
the conference meets again, and in re
turn Qodoliarles has promised to sup
port Herman for the nomination in
1908. If this agreement is oarried out
it will not only prevent Fooht's re
nomination now, but keep him out of
the senate for eight years.
Fooht's adversaries say he realizes
he is beaten, and that he will with
draw in Oodcharles' favor if he oan
induce the state maohine managers to
promise him the nomination for state
treasurer next year or auditor general
the following year.
Oodoharles returned Friday from his
wedding trip, and it is expected a
meeting of the senatorial conferees
will be held within the next ten days.
Should Focht absent himself from the
conferenoe a nomination will be made
without 'iim. He says, however, that
he will attend the oonferenoe and
abide by the result, whioh is oonstru •
ed to meau that he knows he is beat
en,and is makiug the best of the situa
tion.—Shamokin Daily News. _
Lineman's Bad 'Fall.
Oeorge Feuton, of Sunbury, employ
ed as a lineman by the Sunbury and
Northumberland Eleotrio Railway
Company, had a narrow esoape from a
horrible death shortly before nine
o'ciook Wednesday morning, when he
fell from a pole, a distance of twenty
five feet, due to coming in oontaot
with a live wire.
At the time of the aooident Fen'.ou
was ohanging a wire on the large pole
looated on Market Square,Bunbury, at
the overhead orossing and in somo
manner he received an eleotrio shook
and waa hurled to the street paving
below. Several parties who witnessed
the acoident hurried to his assistance
and he was taken to Dr. Stoner's
office. MoKinney's haok was then
hurriedly summoned and the injured
lineman was taken to bis home on
South Front street, where an examina
tion of his injuries showed that he
had suffered a dislocation of the left
shoulder, • fraoture of the right fore
arm and burns and bruises about the
body. Although his injuries are very
painful Kenton is very lucky that he
escaped death or that his injuries are
I not of a more serious nature when
taking into oonsideration the distance
he fell to the hard pavement.

The Sharaokin coal region famishes
many startling items of news bat the
strangest tale of wonder that it has re
cently produced was the resnrreotion
of a man whose body had been prepar
ed for bnrial by the undertaker.
It appears that the Polanders of tha
region have a great time at their
oiiristenings,at which large quantitiea
of beer are indulged in, and when
something stronger is wanted dilnted
aloohol is substituted. On one of these
occasions that ocourred within the
past week, a Springfield Polishman
named John Faux swallowed a quan
tity of alcohol and fell into a deep
stupor resembling death. Those pres
ent beliered that the spark of life had
fled and sent for an undertaker. The
supposed dead man was plaoed in an
ioe box and the lid was slipped on top.
Suddenly there came strange rapa from
the interior of the box and upon tha
lid being taken off Faux opened his
eye<> and leaped out of the freezing
and grim bed he ooenpied.
This strange happening is said to
have ocourred several days ago and al
ready preparations were being made
for the funeral when the strange
noises were heard in the ice box and
the mournerß all fled.
The undertaker who was supposed
to have had oharge of the remains,
denies the truthfulness of the story,
but others who seem to know all
about it.assert that it ißonly too trne.
