Notwithstanding that vacation sea
loo Uon and many of tho ohurches
are temporarily without preaching tho
patiepts at the Hospital for the In
jfUM are not deprived of the gospel.
Oaring the yoar eaoh of the pits
lon In town have a certain time al
lotted to them for ollloiating at the
l(ospltal. Rev. Dr. Shindel is ono of
oar clergymen who is not taking a va
cation ; it appears just now that ho is
booked for the Hospital nnd he Sun
day preached to the unfortunates who
ace incarcerated thoro.
Preaching at the Hospital is a task
not to be coveted. No matter how
aealoas the minister may be in his de
ilre to do good he finds it difficult to
■alt bis message to his hearers aud ho
li sometimes much iu doubt whether
hii effort has proved iu auy degreo
iielpfol to the unfortunate ones as
sembled to hear him.
Ai a result the sermons pruaohed at
tile Hospital are of a peculiar type,
abaped to reaoh the afflicted minds
and to throw iuto tho burdened hearts
at least one ray of hope aud sunshine.
Many of the sermons are beautiful in
tbeir way revealing how much thoro
li In Qod's promises adapted even to
tbe most hopeless conditions of life.
The sermon preached by Rev. I)r.
M. L. Shindel yesterday was one of
(hU beautiful aud appropriate class.
The text itself is all that it is nec
essary to qaote. It was from the 00th
Psalm: "Make us glad accordiug to
the days wherein Thou hast ult'licted
as aud the years wherein we have seen
evil." The sermon was delivered iu
Or. Bhindel's sympathetic stylo and
la point of beauty aud sentiment was
thoroughly iu keeping with the text.

The river has fallon rapidly during

now at nearly its lowost point.
The ferry owing to the woak cur

al of the teams, including tho McUor

A Monster Snake.

Major O. P. Goarhart has made an
interesting con tri hut ion to tho Depart
ment of Agricultuio at Hairisburg,
which is most highly appreciated by
those in chargo.
It happens that at Major Gearhart's
home, South Danville, lie has an ap
ple and a pear troo standing close to
gether. Tho othnr (lay ho found a
freak lying under his apple tree in the
form of a cross between a pear and an
apple. It was found under tho apple
tree side by side with a healthy well
developed apple. As indicated by its
odor and coloring the freak was an
apple, although in form it was a large
aud beautifully shapod pear. Tho
Major regarded it as a curiosity aud
sent it along witli tho apple to Har
risburg. Oil Saturday ho received a
reply from H. A. Surface, M. SO.,
Economic Zoologist, which attests to
tho high estimate placed upon tho
value of the freak and pays a fine
compliment to tho Major for his zeal
and intelligent action in thus contrib

Harrisburg, Pa., Aug. 12, 1904.
Mr. Clias. I*. Gear hart, Danville, Pa.
Dear Sir:—Your letter and tho in
teresting fruit which you sent to Sec
rotary Oritohlield has been handed to
me for attention and reply. 1 take
great pleasure in examining this in
teresting freak,as it is something very
unusual There have boen artificial
crosses hot ween the pear and the ap
ple, but I know of none that was nat
ural. I wish to ask if there wore any
others of this pear-shaped fruit on
your apple tree. What is the variety
of tho apple?
I think that your explanation as to
the cross by carrying the pollon from
your Bartlett poar to the blossom of
the applo is correct. You will ho
interested in knowing what disposi
tion I shall make of it. First I shall
photograph the applo and pear, side
by side; then, I shall have a cast
made of tho Pear-apple, aud paint it
so as to get the natural Hize, form and
color; then, I shall cut the fruit open
to determino its llavor and odiblo
qualities from tho inside,proservo tho
seeds for planting, and by putting tho
two halves togother again, I can have
it apparently uninjured from the out
side, and preserve it in a liquid. Tho
horticulturists will be greatly inter
ested in this, and I shall discuss it at
tho Stato* Horticultural Association
1 thank you for sending this,and ap
preciate your intelligence and prompt
ness in so doing, rat' or than mere
ly following tho dictates of a curious
desire to oat it, or ignore its interest
ing features. lam very truly yours,

Dominic Constance was formally ar
raigned before Squire John Keroliliuo
of Bellefonte on Saturday charged
with jail breaking and of being an
accessory before and after the fact, to
the murdor of Turnkey Condo. The
Common wealth wan represented by
District Attorney N. B. Spang lor. He
was held without bail, and is now
confined in what is known as the light
dungeon in the Centre county jail.
The only furnishing in tho coll is a
mattress on which to sleep. He is in
his stocking feet, with only a pair of
pantaloons and a shirt to cover his
body. When first, he was placed bo
hiud the bars lie was in a fiendish dis
position. He cursed and carried on
liko a mad man, saying that ho did
not care what they did with his neck.
Frequently lie said," Me no kill Jerry,
mo only got out ot jail."
The formal arraignment of Con
stance brings out the fact that since
his recaptnro ho has related consider
able of interest concerning tlio plans
for escape and the murdor of Condo.
He said that several days previous to
the escapo, thoy decided to break jail.
"Little George," meaning Livingston,
who is still at largo,would carry mos
sagos to and fro between cells Nos. 7
and 8. The staple on tho door of cell
No. 8, was sawed off several days pri
or lo the escape, and Houderson asked
Dominie several times whether ho
wanted to break jail and escape, an 1
he said that he did. Henderson said
that when they got out, they would
color thoir hair, change clothes aud
other mean of dis&nise. Friday morn
ing thoy asked Turnkey Condo when
Sheriff Taylor was coming back from
Gettysburg, to which Condo answered
"tomorrow." George Livingston then
went down to the main prison door
and when one of the sheriff's girls
passed, asked her what thoy were go
iug to do that evening. She told him
that thoy were going to the band con
cert at Hecla Park. He then went
back to tho colls aud told tho other
prisoners. They thou held a confer
ence and decided to broak jail that
night. Dillen and Green bent down
tho one corner of tho shoot iron door
of their coll, and placing a stick be
twoon the jam and tho door, crawled
out ov3r it, went down stairs, and se
creted tliomsi Ives in tho bathroom bo
low. Constance and Henderson wore
looked op in their cells,but thoy heard
Condo and McOullough come in with
tho hohblos. McOullough entered
first, followed by Condo. Constance
said ho heard Groon and Dillen run
out, and when he struck Condo ho
heard the latter cry out, " What is the
matter with you follows tonight?"
Thou ho groaued several times. Green
then pitched the keys up to Living*-
ton, who opened tho cell in which
Dominie, was, along with Hender
son, and thoy both ran out.
It was said that when tho Italian
came out and ran down stairs, ho
jumped upon Condo, as he lay upou
tho floor of tlio jail, unconscious.
But. Dominic denies that ho oithor
struck him or jumped upon him. He
says ho saw Jerry lying with his head
sideways on tho floor, with his hands
over his head. Ho could not see Dil
lon or Groon strike tlio Turnkey, but
heard them pound him, and know who
was doing it,because they wero swear
ing at tlio old man. After ho got out
ho loft tho others at the door of tlio
jail, and struck for tho mountains.
He said that ho was there ever since,
within throe nnlos of Bellefonte. He
got. bread at different placos aud once
ho paid a boy to get some for him.
Ho denies that ho had been at tho Ita
ian shanties at the lime kilns. When
asked where ho got tho black suit, and
hat ho replied, "Someone gave them
to mo." Ho said that ho slept in
tlio mountains with a very largo um
brella to keep off tho rain. Ho did
not onjoy sloop niiioh for ho feared
that someone would como aud shoot
him. Ho as id he was tired, and that
if thoy had not. caught him, he was
coming to Bellefonte to give himself
up. When reminded that ho had
threatened to kill tho sheriff and Con
do, ho said ho was only iu fun.

Enormous Traffic on the Ferry,
Some idoa of the o uorinnus trailic
ovor tlio rivor at this plaoo aud con
sequently tho uoocssity of having tho
bridge restored at tho earliest possible
date can bo formed by ob<orving the
crowded cordition of tho lorry at all
hours of tho day.
A correct count on Saturday last
was kept botwoen the hours of 6:80 a.
in.and 0:30 p. in., when it was found
that 2071 persons aud 471 vehicles woro
transported ovor the rivor. This, it
will bo observed, is for twelve hours
only and doos nut inolndo somn thirty
wagons or mill employes who crossod
at an eatlier hour. Ferrymau Jones
last evening stated that a consorvativ o
estimate would placo the avorago
number of vohicles which cross the
rivor by forry daily at three hundred.
No one will imagine that tho singlo
forryman ou duty at one time in hand
ling this enormous aggrogato of peo
ple and toanis lias any thing like a
sineunre of it. There aro inuumorahlo
details to look aftor. Tho forry boat
must ho kopt from grounding at tho
landings, tho teams must be disposed
about tho boat in snob a way that tho
ferry may bo loaded to tho best advan
tage, while when the wator is low it
requires constant exortion to keep tlio
forryboat moving. Tho fidelity of tlio
two ferrymen, their oare and good
manpgement is well attestod by the
stoady sorvico rendered by tho forry
and tho fact that not an accident in
the least serious lias occurred on the
boat during tlio whole summer.

A conference relating to freight;
trausferienco took place in this oily
i'nesda.y between the leading officials
of the P. & H. and the D. L. W. Kail
roads. Mu.di of the carrying done
for several of the iudustrii s of the
town involves the trnnsforrouce of
oa - H. It u important, therefore, that
the two railroad companies liavo a
thorough understanding in the mat
tor, which naturally involves a lull
knowledge of switches and the size
aud locatiou of sidings.
Danville yesterday was, therefore,
selocted as a place for the conference
so that tho officials could go carefully
over tho ground and arrive at an esti
mite of the track facilitios. j
Tho officials of each railroad arrived
about one o'clock in a special train. !
The D L. & W. officials comprised the
following: T. K. Clark, General Su
perintendent ; T. J. Flyun, Traffic
Manager; (3. M. Kine, Division Sup- '
erinti inleut; J. B. Keefe, Division!
Freight Agent; W. 13. Hizsoti, Super
intendent of Bridges and Buildings '
and J. G. Kay, Division Engineer.
Tho P.& R. contingent consisted of
about the same number of officials,
headed by T. D. Dice, General Sup
erintendent of the Kail way.
Tho oonrorenco lasted about an hour,
during which the officials personally
visited tho siding at both tho Struc
tural Tubiug Works aud tho Reading
Iron Works. Shortly after 2 o'clock
tho special trains departed.

This falling of your hair!
Stop it, or you will soon be
bald. Give your hair some
Ayer's Hair Vigor. The fall
ing will stop, the hair will
grow, and the scalp will be
clean and healthy. Why be
satisfied with poor hair when
you can make it rich?
** My hair nearly nil came out. I then tried
Ayer'a Hair Vigor and only one bottle stopped
the falling. New hair came in real thick aud
luat a little curly." — Mas. L. M. SMITH,
