Last Friday Danville experienced
quite an interesting treat —it it may
be termed a treat to witness a multi
tude of souls exerting themselves to
their utmost to accomplished that
which must be done in a certain
length of time, that, under ordinary
circumstances would require just
again as long.
Mr. Pascoe, the contractor for con
structing the trolley line between this
city and Bloonisburg, in order to
overcome difficulties that were sure to
arise in an attempt to extend his line
from Market street to the river bridge,
prearranged for his band of Italians
to start with Friday's early morn and
complete the job before they quit, al
lowing them two days' wages for the
one day's work.
The brawny men from Italy's
sunny land started with a vim to ac
complish the work, and never did a
more determined crowd of persona
exert themselves, at manual labor,
than did this. The work was finish
ed by evening —anil well done—but
not before the expected trouble ap
About half past one the Danville-
Suubury company served an injunc
tion, restraining them from trespass
ing on what they claimed to lxi their
right of way, but our wide-a-wake
pride of the bar, Jas. Scarlet, soon
iiad the matter properly adjusted and
work went onto the end. Fifteen
minutes work was suspended but in
that time Mr. .Scarlet convinced the
Court, a special session of which was
called for this case, that it required a
Judge's signature or the signatures of
both associates to make an injunction
legal—these could not be gotten. Of
course there was no use to wait, so
the job was finished.
The Italians, in this hard day's
work, expressed their appreciation to
their employer in the most befitting
manner possibly by overcoming an
obstacle that might have cost a great
delay and exjiensc to him. They
proved to the general public that
they liked their boss and were glad to
make a sacrifice for him. At the
close of the day's work they cheered

a great victory, ami they had, too.

MODERN WAYS IN JAPAN.
"Ladies in Japan do not wear jew
elled rings." I wish to correct that
into *'Ladles of old Japan," &c. If
you but try to look at a tiny hand of
any girl in a well to-do family of
present day Japan—a hand coming
out of a scarlet-lined sleeve —you will
easily find a jewelled ring or rings on
her fingers. Jewels we had none be
fore, but we prize them just the
same. As to the wearing of rings,
even gentlemen are often seen with a
thick gold ring made out of an old
Japanese coin called •'koban." The
study of the introduction of a new
custom is interesting. In the case of
j "snow-white pillows, n they were
first used in hospitals, where we
adopted everything from the West as
it was. We did not have sheets for
our beds along with that, but clean
ness recommended itself to the Jap
anese, and the custom was readily
followed by those who took a fancy to
It. As to kissing, it is rather deli
cate to touch on, but it caunot be
dismissed with a general statement
that "in affection and love the Japan
ese are outwardly undemonstrative."
All depends upon circumstances.
Generally speaking, we shun the eyes
of the public to be demonstrative, or
to seek the occasion when all can
join with us. Kissing as practiced
in the West is still strange to us, but
no one who kuows about it would
wonder if a young couplo of modern
Japan should take to it to express

Must Have Public Sympathy.
In Collier's Weekly for August 20,
1904, John Mitchell, the President of
the United Mine Workers of America,
"My experience has been that the
commission of crime on the part of
strikers or their friends reduces the
chances of success. A strike of any
considerable magnitude can not well
succeed unloss it have the sympathy
and support of the general public,
and when a strike resolves itself into
an armed conflict the public very
properly withdraws its sympathy.
That employers of labor understand
full well the injury to strikers which
follows violence is shown by the fact
that not infrequently during labor
disturbances thugs are employed to
provoke strikers into the commission
of some unlawful art."

The Cost of Firing Cannon.
!Krom U'slh-N Weekly.)
Somo idea of the cost of modern
warfare can lie arrived at by taking a
Japanese warship like the Kaluga or
Nyssbin and calculating the number
of shots she would discharge. The
tirst-namcd'ship carries four cannon
which cost $30,000 each. One of
these guns can (ire two shots per
minute, and every shot COSIB $400;
thus in live minutes these four can
discharge forty bombs at a cost of
$16,000. The smaller cannon cost
each SIB,OOO, and every shot they fire
means an expenditure of S7O. They
are very rapid, audit is estimated
that In five minutes the twelve can
non could discharge shot to the value
of nearly $35,000.

Saratoga, N. Y., Aug. 21—John W.
Gates and John A. Drale created ex

night by playing faro fur l>igh stakes
and losing $27,000.
They were told when tney entered
the clubhouse that the limit was
"That is too small," said Gates.
"Make it $250 to eases and SSOO to
doubles, and wo will go you."
Ralph Croker, the backer of the
club, protested that the limit was too
high, but two bookmakers, Ullman
and Blumenthal, offered to take half
the risk in order to ••give Gates all
the action he wanted," and th«; game
Gates and Drake had hard luek
from the start, and when they hud
lost some thousands Gates wanted
the limit taken oil' altogether. This
was refused, but, as a compromise,
the limit was made SSOO to eases and
SIOOO to doubles.
At one time Gates and Drake were
fl.'j,ooo out, but they won back $lB,-

MR. BAKER HAS A VISION.
It Is Roosevelt and Booker T. Wash
ington for 1908.
From the Washington Post.
Editor Post: As a colored man I
wish to call attention to the dillei
ence between the Republican and the
Democratic Natioual Conventions,
At the Republican convention the
colored man was treated as a compan
ion, friend, and brother. There he
was made to feel as if he were not
only a political, but a social equal.
The delegates followed the advice and
example of our beloved President
Theodore Roosevelt, who teaches that
the colored man deserves to be tieat
ed as a social equal. To emphasize
this fact, he had the courage to have
at his table Prof. Booker T. Washing
ton. If Roosevelt is elected it will so
encourage the colored men that we
will demand that Prof, looker Wash
ington shall be the Republican candl
! date for Vice President in 1908.
Let not my colored brethren forget
that scene in the Republican conven
tion when a beautiful white girl was
placed upon the stage, and by her
side a negro bov. They then placet!
Jlags in their hands and allowed them
to lead tho cheering, thus making
the first and grandest ex unplc of the
equality of the races that history re-
In the Democratic con\ cntion there
was not a single colored man. It was
in word and in deed a white man's
party. All hail to Roosevelt, who
has given the poor negro so much to
encourage him to persist in his poli
tical and social rights.
