will be ready to begiu work in a very
few days and probably will have use
for a good many workmen.
The Sweigard method provides for
laying new sewer lines leading to a
raoeivlng well about 1500 feet at the
rear of the Hospital. The water from
tbia point will be pumped into a dis

Oar readers will be glad to learn
that our former townsman, William
L. Harder, of Birmingham, Ala., a
brother of Postmaster Oharlos P.
Harder, has perfected a very useful
invention relating to rolling mill work
which will no doubt enrioli him and
make his name famous. Mr. Harder,
who is distinctively a rolling mill
man, in the 70's aco mpanied William
Faux from Danville to Pueblo. Ho
next went to Houston, Texas, later
drifting to Birmingham. The follow
ing from the "Birmingham Mews"
fully explains the invention:
* William L. Harder,after mnch theo
retical study on the subject, has made
tests at the Birmingham mills of a
patented auxiliary furnace.using pro
ducer gas, demonstrating an idea he
lies looking to a general saving in lab
or, fuel aud wear and tear of machin
ery. Experts who have witnessed the
demonstration believe that the patent
will arouse as much interest as did
the Westinghouse air brake when it
was first demonstrated.
A large number of experts and in
terested parties have been to the roll
ing mills and investigated the patent
audit is likely that there will bo some
use put to it in Birmingham.
With tho Harder systom of burning
producer gas under boilers it is propos
ed to effect a great saving in tho
world's consumption of coal. Ovor
the beßt praotioe with tho most mod
ern up-to-date steam generating aud
steam saving appliances this mothod
of firing will save, it is said, from ten
to fifteen per oent. of the total com
bustibles used, which is now lost by
incomplete oombustiou and by tho in
troduction of exoess air and by green
ooal and coke falling through tho grate
bars. The Harder system entirely ob
viates these losses by completely gasify
iug every particle of oonibustiblo in
the fuol employed aud delivering same
to the fire box aud consuming the gas
with the minimum amount of air.
There is a complete aud Hinokeloss
combustion. Iu first-class practice it
iB proposed to save in fuel ton to fif
teen per oent. in labor from thirty to
fifty per oent. and prevent all smoke,
aud over average steam boiler practico
it is proposed to save from fiftoon to
thirty-five per oent. in firing ovor fir
ing direot, and fifty per oent. in labor
and also havo no smoke. Over poor
practice this iuveutiou, it is said,will
save fifty per cent, iu ooal and labor
aud under all conditions abate tho
smoke nuisance. By this system it is
proposed to lengthen the life of the
boiler and the furnace walls, for at no
time is cold air permitted to entor the
fire box and henco a <ioiok contraction
of the boiler is prevented aud the
strains caused thereby avoidod. Tliore
are no grate bars aud hence no clink-
ers accumulate on the boilor walls
and consequently tho furnaoo is clean
at all times. The eoonomies of tho
Harder system as sot forth in his geu
eral proposition are numerous aud are
all founded on scientific principles aud
his ideas are a combination of woll
established theories which he bad re
duced to a practical application and
has made it possible to install a set of
oouditions in a steaui generation plant
that will effect the maximum saving
in fuel, the maximum saving in labor,
give the maximum length of life to
the builer aud appurtenances and most
etTeotively abate the smoke nuisance.
Mr. Harder has been assisted by some
of the best gas experts aud mechanics
in the district in the installation of
his test plant. In the last two or three
days a number of persons interested iu
the plants have looked at the tempor
ary .limit ereoted at the rolling mills.

The sinking of the British steamship
Knight Commander by the Russian
Vladivostok squadron, which caused
such tension in tlie Russo-British rela
tions, possesses a special interest to
the people of Danville, as the vessel
' destroyed contained a shipment of
Danville, stoves, which now with the
rest of the ill-starred cargo lie at the
bottom of the Red Sea.
The shipment of Danville goods car
ried by the Knight Commander con
sisted of two large Beaver Furnaces
consigned to the Methodist Mission at
Tientsen, China. The shipment was
made from New York through the Am
erican Trading Company aud like all
export shipments was insured.
Russia to conciliate the British gov
ernment has promised to make repara
tion if after a full investigation it is
found that the commander of the Vlad
ivostok squadron acted rashly and that
the Knight Commander in the strict
sense contained no contraband of war.
In that event the Russian Government
will have to pay for the loss of these
furnaces and imlomuity besides.
The furnaces were shipped from New
York by A. L. Canfield, agent of the
Danville Stove & Manufacturing Com
pany, who has built up an extensive
export trade. Shipments are very fre
quently made to China, as well as to

ST. PETERSBURG, July 3.—The
assassin of Ministor of tlielutorior U.
Von Plohve is said to have made a
partial confession,in which lie declar
ed that for a long time he was a
school teacher ill a rural district and
was greatly interested in the Zemstvo,
for tho curtailment of whose powers
ho blamed the dead minister.
He still absolutely refuses to dis
close his name. A watch is kept on
him day and night, not only in order
to prevent his doing himself bodily
harm, but ill the belief that he may
botray himself In his sleep. Thus far
ho has only inutterod two words in
sleep—endearing diminutives for Peter
and Natalie, probably the names of a
comrade and sweetheart.
The police have discovered that a
third accomplico was concerned in the
murder plot and that he was stationed
on a quay on tho Neva, where one of
tho imperial yachts was moored on
tho chance that the minister might go

Successful Family Keunion.
Tlio third reunion of the Vonght
family, which was hold in Mayberry
township Saturday, brought out a
large attendance, there being about
two hundrod representatives of the
Vought family present. In point ot
numbers and in the interest shown the
reunion was the most successful of any
thus far hold.
Each of the addressos, which were
delivered by Rev. F. 8. Vought, W.
10. lOtmes aud Preston Vought, were
appropriate and happy efforts,and held
the close attention ot all present.
Tlio only circumstance which ooour
iod to mur tlio pleasure of the event
was tlio death of Solomon Ilelwig, of
lOlysburg, which took place at the
Miners' Hospital, Saturday moruing,
as the result of an accident snßtained
July 21st while trying to pacify a
horse frightened by au automobile at
Sixth street, Shamokin. Tlio wife of
tlio deoeased is the yonngest sister of
Simon Vought of Glysburg. The de
ceased is aIBO survived by Miss Lillian,
a daughter who lives at the parental
home, and ouo son, Hatton, who is at
present in Seattle. The sorrow of the
survivors was keenly shared by the
uear relatives at the reunion and the
elfect of the sad occurrence was plain
ly manifest during the day.
On Tuesday Seliungrove was the scene
of an educational aud politioaal coin
cidence. Whilo the Senatorial confer
euoo was turning down B. K. Fooht
for a renomination as State Senator
tlio Board of Susquehanna University
unanimously elected his brother. Rev.
Dr. John B. Focht, as president of
Company F, 12tli Regimeut, N. G.
P., arrived home on the 5:43 D. L. &
W. train Saturday eveuiug from the
annual enoampment at Gettysburg.
The boys presented a good appear
anoe and were in most excellent spirits
although a little vexed over a most
unexpected delay which oocurrod at
Northumberland. The company broke
camp at 8 a. m. Saturday and arrived
at Northumberland at 3 :30 o'clock iu
the afternoon. There was no other al
ternative than to wait until 5 :2b
o'olook when the regular train due
here at SA3 left the station. The two
hours hung very heavily on the hands
of the Guardsmen. Various means
were employed to kill timo, some of
the nuiformed men strolling about the
streets of the quiet towu while others
stretched themselves out and took a
nap on the Btation platform.
The memory of the encampment just
closed will lie treasured ill the mind
of the Guardsmen as oue uuiquo in its
way, being most successful from every
view-point, reflecting credit upon the
National Guard as a body and bring
ing to the individual members a suc
cession of pleaaaut experiences with
not a single occurrence to rogret.
The enoampment is considered the
greatest in the history of the National
Guard. The discipline was remark
able, uot a single case of disorder be
ing brought before the provost mar
shall. Thin is all the more remarkable
when it is axplaiued that ten thousand
ineu were enoamped. As a result of
the good order prevailing the Guards
men had the fraedom of the battlefield
aud the towu of Gettysburg without
the use of the regular passes.
The drills were uniformly well at
tended aud these owing to the general
proficiency shown were neither long
uor arduous. The grand review on
Thursday is prouounood one of the
finest military pageants evor seen in
the United States. There wero about
80,000 spectators present.
There were no oases of illness in
Oompany F during the week in camp.
The quarters were exceptionally clean.
One of the features which made life
pleasant was the good cooking. The
men ne>er livod better at enoanipmeiit.
All praise is due William Smith, the
oompany cook,for the way he handled
the State issue of provisions as well
as the extra food purchased by the
mombers of the oompany. The bill of
fare coutaiued delicacies never before
known by the mombers of Oompany F
at euoampment. Quartermaster Gross
was complimented highly for the san
itary oondition of the tent and kitch

Oompany F's pay roll for enoamp
meut amounts to about SIOOO, tho
amounts due for the week varying from
(12 for privates to i>2fi for First Sorgo

men realize a nice little compensation
along with a week's outing embracing
a free visit to the historic battlefield.

Some persons who avail themselves

as well as cutting clippings out of
other publications which are permitt

It is hard to tell wliioli of the above
