Oherry Pits in Intestines. | That a child eighteen mouths old ' could -wallow 343 cherry pits aud livo after their removal principally by ■argliill means after they had closed the passages In the intestiues, would i be deemed impossible were not such the eiperienoe of tint child of Ohediah Michael, of Summer Hill. Recent , mention was made in tho Nows of the i child when it was stated that Dr. , Reagan of Betwick, had removed 300 , pita. This number was thought Im- i possible but soon after Dr. Reagan had am thor call lo relieve the child and removed by Burgical menus aud medicine 143 more wliioli makes the total 341. The pits, which are now in the poH'Uasiou of Dr. Reagan, almost fill a large olive bottle. Some of the pita are extra large ones which makes the case the more remarkable The child is doiug well nnd Dr. Reagan stated that if nothing unfore seen set i in the chilli will recover. The ease is oue certainly without a parallel in this section and uo doubt also within a much wider scope. Will Not Sell Lots. luqniriea have beeu made recently by aome of our citizens as to the dis position of the Mill street lots owned by the D. L. & W. Company ou either aide of the canal culvert. The lot of ground taking up the canal bed from Mill to Ferry streets is especially I valuable. It is considered by many, taking iuto consideration the very good lo mtion, to be worth at least n ,000 aud in faot such an offer was made some weeks ago by one of Dan ville's prominent citizens. At present the D. L. & W. Com pany will not sell the lots which leads many 10 believe that they iutond us ing it at some future time for purposes of their own. Iu answer to an inquiry from a prospective purchaser the Com pany Flat id "that there had been sev eral olreis made for the ground but that it au4 not for sale at this time."

Pre* ions to this time no insurance has beeu i arried by the Borough along this line.

PA., FRIDAY, JULY 22, 1904 NO DELAY IN STREET PAVING Mill street will in a short time t:iko on a very busy appearaucc. Contract or D. J. Rogers who hold* the street paving ooutract stated Saturday even ing that work would be begun within at least three days after the election on Tuesday, August 2nd. Between fifty and sixty men will be employod on the job and the grading and laying ef brick will be carried on at the samo tiiuo. Though work of this kind neems to move slowly Mr. Rog ers stated that in his opiuiou it would not take over three mouths to pave the street if all tilings moved as they should. The trolley company will have to lay its tracks before the work of paving is bugun. The roadway will liavo to bo dug out to a depth of twelve inches and at some plaaes even more. The laying of the briok, while uot difficult, neces sitates the employment of experienced hands. Tlio street will be paved iu sections, abont f>oo feot at a time be ing blocked off. While tills work will close tlio street iu such a manner as to prevent driving through it, yet those places ou either side of the blocked portion will i)e accessible ; ami though some inconvenience will result this plan will uot closo the highway alto gether. s Lack of material will at no time de lay the work as the Reese-Hmmoud Brick Gompauy will he uudor bond to furnish the paving blooks as fast as needed. Mr. Rogers anticipates no trooblo iu socuring all the laborers ueeded and the work once started will move along with surprising rapidity. Mill stroat should present a sight about December Ist in strikiug contrast to what it in now and with the other iuiprovomonts contemplated the busi ness portion of Danville will compare very favorably with tlio most progres sive cities in the state. The Lutheran Reunion. Rev. Dr. Heimensnyder, of Mil ton president of the Susqueliauua Luther an reunion, makes the following an nouncement: The Susquehanna Luth eran Reunion will be bold tiiis year at Edgewood Park, Shainokin.

This Dr. Haas is a brother of the Dr. liaas who wai pastor of the ohurch whose congregation lost almost oue thousand members ou the ill-fated steamer Slocuni,including the pastor's wife and daughter. It is iutendud to make this tho best of all our Lutheran reunions. Good rates have beou se cured, splendid airangements aud great improvements on the grounds. Get ready for a grand rally and a spleudid time. Snakes Killed at Water Works. Three large snakes were killed by borough employes ou the rivor l>auk below the Water Works on Saturday. One of these, awf tor snake, was dis covered swimming around in the well that was being cleaned out. It was a large reptile and in order to remove it, hail to be shot. The other two snakes wero of tho dangerous copperhead variety and were killed by Samuel Sainsbury. Roth of these were ehree feet long. Mr. Sains bury,who was working ou the founda tion of the retaining wall discovered the first one lying between two large stones. After some troublo he killed the snake and shortly afterward saw the second one crawling toward tho weeds. With a shovel iu hand Mr. Saiusbury gave oliase and struck tho copperhead on tho hack, pinning it to tho grouud. The snake luade every effort to strike, but ouly succeeded in striking its faugs against the shovel. Work on Oulvert Untiuishod. Contractor D. J. Rogers has still some work to do iu oounectiou with the Mill street culvert. A coping Is to be placed on both sideß, the stone for which is expectod to ariivo in a few days. Iron railings will also be put up which will servo as a protec tion. At the last mooting of Oouuoil it was decided to heighten the retaining walls leadiug down Uanal avenue aud to lengthen them somewhat. The walls will be allowed to slope gradually to tlia grouud and will be a continuation of the walls built by Mr. ltogcis. Haud rails will be placed on them. When this work is finished it will greatly enhance the appearance of thiugs at this point. At preseut it has a desolate and uufluished appearance. It was also deoided to lower the side walks at the Oity Hall to couform with the established grade. Ferrj Moves Slowly. Though the river has risen several inches the past few days the ferry makes little headway. Doing toward the South Danville shore it is especial ly trying aud to make any of the Penn sylvania trains it is wise to start very early. Several passeugers missed the 5-.50 train last evening, though pre sumably they had started early enough. In inauy oases the ferry passeugers be- I come quite impatient aud look long , iugly at the ferryman. ' The ferrymen are doing all that is possible to facilitate tho speed aud uu ) der the circumstauces show a remark 'able palienoe. CONTRIBUTING LIBERALLY Danville Citizen Contri butes Large Sum for New Cathedral. BISHOP APPEALS TO EACH PARISH Cathedral at Harrisburg Will Cost $225,000-- Parishes of the Di ocese Will Contribute. The announcement has been made that the snm ot till,(> 00 has already been contributed by twenty-two per sons in the diocose for the new oath oilriil at Harrisburg. oue of our prom inent citizens, Jolm H. (looser con tributing the largest amount. Bishop John Walter Shaualiau.of the Koman Catholic diocese, of Harris burg, has issued a letter to the clergy and laity for tnuds for the erection of the new cathedral in Harrisburg, which is now ready tor the founda tions, and which Bishop Shaualian says, "will rival in size aud splendor the most celebrated churches ot the New World." The cathedral will oost #33.">,000 aud au agreeuieut has been signed with the contractor to pay him $50,000 by Dec ember next, and the bishop appeals to every Catholic iu the diooese to help raise the uiouoy. He says,"To raise the amount of money whioli we shall ncuil during the coming twelve mouths each parish is called upon to coutri bute a sum equivalent to one dollar for every member of its population." Already donations have been made as follows by Catholics ot the diocese: John H. (looser, Danville $9,000 John Obliuger, Lancaster 1,000 Mrs. A. M'Conomv, Laucatser 1,000 Richard M.

The question brought up by Council man bYnsteruiaeher at last Friday night's session of Council in regard to the digging of a trench to carry otT the surplus water from the canal bot tom seems to have voiced the senti ments of many residents of tlio Sec ond Ward. The canal bed east of Rail road street,as far as the State Hospit al, is veiy low aud consequently It forms sort ot a basin into which the surface water runs aud becomes stag nant. The odor of this is exceptionally obnoxious aud has atoudeucy to breed disease. The Struotuial Tubing Work* at one tiuie obtained its water supply froui a chim built al this poiut but this litis since been abandoned, the company pipiug it* water supply from the mea dows lying north of the canal. The Second Wtird residents claim that there is now nothing to iu?erfero with the draining ot (Ileoanal bed aud the most feasible plan seems to tie the diggiug of a treuoli trom Guliok's Additiou to the aqueduot below the Mill street onlvert. Lost Artificial Foot. Harr.v Kennedy of Hiveraide, had a most peculiar mishap on the ferry while returning to hi* home troni this oity late Saturday night.

As a rule he sudors little inconveni ence hut on Saturday evening as he was about to step off the fetry he stumbled and fell and iu ao&ie manner the artitloiul member oatuo oft aud fell iu tho river,floating away in the dark ness. Heing unable to walk Mr. Ken nedy was taken home iu a wagou. Af ter a diligent search on Sunday morn ing tho foot was found quite a dis tance below the bridge. House Party at Blue Spriuga Farm.
