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

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."

A New Physician.
> Dr. Harry Hiushillwood, a homeo

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.

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.

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
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.

the digging of a trench to carry otT

citing experience Monday aud betore
noon was iu a state ot collapse.
Miss Mack started front the farm
house about eight o'clock to pick ber
ries. Coming to a bush whole the ber
ries hung near the ground she stooped
to pick them and a moment later fell
a stinging sensation ou the left baud,
She raised her arm immediately and
was horrified to see a suake clinging
to the middle tluger, its tangs imbed
ded in the flesh under the kuuekle.
She shook the reptile off aud ran to
the houae. The ariu and Anger were
tightly bound above the wound
aud hasty preparations made to drive
to Danville.
Mrs. Miller, who accompanied Miss
Mack to this oily,alighted at the home
of a frieud ou West Market street.
Maggie, uatnrally nervous about the
wound, started at ouce for Or. P. O.
Newhakor's office. She drove down
factory street and turued iuto West
Mahoning street. Having the use of
but oue hand she was unable to stop
the horse at the Doctor's office and the
