or rather the dew on them, shone bright
during the last four days of last week,

—Part of the Penn St. paving was
torn np last week in order to remedy a
defect in engineering. When the street
was paved a large stone sewer or drain
was built across it; bnt a six-inch gas
pipe was allowed to pierce or rnn
through it. This pipe caught the de
liris and clogged the drain and the heavy
rains flooded some back yards. The
trouble was not located until after the
drain through the back yards had been
uncovered; and hence the change in the
location of the gas pipe, made last weel
at great expense to either the boroupli
or the Gas Co., which will probably be
followed by some suits for damages by
the property owners.
