The Women's Society for the Pieveii
tion of Cruelty to Animals is placing
watering troughs for dogs at different
places on the York streets.
Freakish conditions of some spring
vegetables are noticeable about Gettys
burg and some superstitious folk are
inclined to blame the trouble on the
poor old comet.
Eleven-month-old Walter Wells, of
Philadelphia, in the absence of his
mother, found some cigarettes and ate
several. A few minutes later he doubl- I
ed up in convulsions and died as his |
mother was entering the house.
The heavy coal movement to the I
lake region has congested the Pitts- j
burg railroad yards. Owing to the win
ter tienps at the lakes the coal ship- i
ment is now at its height and the j
railroads do not seem to have the j
facilities for handling the large traffic, i
While he was retnrning from there- >
hearsal for his wedding a few days
ago, John S. Hargrave, of Homestead,
was attacked by two thugs who reliev
ed him of £IOO and the bride's wed
ding ring. He was unconscious for
three days and his bride-to-be nursed |
him. After he had recovered sufficient
ly but was still weak as the result of |
his injuries, the wedding proceeded, j
Alexander Cunningham,aged S)0 died j
at ltis home in Manorville not long !
ago of injuries received when he fell
over a chair about two weeks before. ,
He was one of the oldest residents of j
that section and lived in Manorville j
when it was a small trading post. He j
died in the same house as that in j
which he was born. A carpenter by ;
trade he helped build nearly all the !
houses in the place.
George Schenley, a member of the (
old Pittsburg Schenley family, is now j
in the Smoky City. Some are prone to j
attach singifieance to his visit. Sever- |
al months ago it was rumored that a |
portion of the family estate was to be 1
donated to a new educational institu
tion; this matter may be connected j
with Mr. Schenley's presence. Schen
ley is now a resident of Loudon and j
came to Pittsburg from New York.
Saltsburg police are searching for
two men, who, after knocking down i
D. H. Dunlap.bound and gagged him, j
and took over .S2OO, leaving him un
conscious and making their escape. ,
Dunlap, who lives by himself, went (
to answer a knock at the door and one
of two men standing there asked for a
match. Dunlap turned togo after it
and was struck over the head with a
blackjack. He managed to loosen the
gag after the fellows made their es- j
cape and a passerby heard his calls
aud went to his aid.
Crawling around in her bed, Kuth,
the it-month-old daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. George Seachman, of Windsor, •
fell through the bars and slowly
strangled to death. The parents found
the dead body.
Andrew Patterson,aged 18, of Turtle
Creek, is in a serious condition in the j
Columbia hospital, Wilkinsburg, with I
his left arm torn to shreds and his left j
side lacerated from the shoulder to the j
hip, as the result of having had the j
arm drawn between some cog wheels
while at work in the Westinghouse j
Machine company's plant at East ;
Pittsburg. His sleeve caught in the j
machinery and soon the merciless steel ;
started to crush his hand. He scream- j
ed for help but before it could arrive |
the flesh on his side was being torn, i
When Frank Gallas, the former for
eign exchange clerk of the First, Na- I
tional bank of Ford City, arrived at i
his home, which he visited while tem
porarily released from the Allegheny !
county jail while waiting to be trans- |
ported to the Fort Leavenworth fed- j
eral prison, in Kansas, he found his I
year-old daughter Mabel dead of scar- j
let fever; his 2-year-old son ill, and ;
his wife prostrated with grief. He was '
almost overcome. The wife broke
down when her husband was sentenc
ed to five years' imprisonment last j
May and was ill for weeks. The shock .
of her daughter's death has made her
condition serious.
Three men have been arrested at j
East Liberty by Pennsylvania railroad j
detectives and twenty more are to be j
haled before the law. A big robbery i
scheme is said to have been discover- j
ed. Ten thousand dollars' worth of
articles is said to have been taken
from the Adams Express company at
that place. George Harris, a railroad
electrician ; David 13. Cox, an express
agent, and Charles Parsons, a railroad
employe, are under arrest. Robberies
have been going on since January 1
aud the value of goods stolen may have
been more than given out, it is said.
Dr. Edward Charles Parker,profess

An epidemic of unrest seems to have
seized the patients at the hospital for
the insane. On Saturday no less than
three escapes were attempted, two of
which for the time being, at least,
were successful.
The first escape oocurred during the
morning when an Italian, who was as
sisting to carry clothes to the wash
house took advantage of the confidence
reposed in him and finding himself j
momentarily alone made tracks toward |
town. He was missed and a party was |
soon in pursuit. Up to last accounts, j
however, he was still at large, al- !
though the authorities at the hospital ■
inclined to the belief that he was hid- '
ing about town,possibly in the rolling :
The man is said to He j
has dark curly hair, a mustache of the I
same color: wears a dark brown suit, j
with black slouch hat and speaks good i
The most sensational escape, how- j
ever, occurred during the afternoon, j
when a patient scaled a high walljtnd
by dint of hard running succeeded in !
eluding the attendants, a troop of
whom were in pursuit.
The patient was the same athletic
young fellow,that attempted to escape 112
in Danville on February 24th last,
when a number of patients were
brought down to the opera house to i
witness a performance of the Champ- J
lin Stock company. It will be recalled
that at the close of the matinee a pati
ent'made a dash, leading an attendant
and a half a dozen others a merry
chase down Penu street. He demonst- ■
rated the very finest sprinting qualities 1
and was caught only because he un
wittingly ran into an alley that led to
the steep bank of Mahoning creek.
His second attempt to escape Satur
day promises to yield better results
As he scaled the high wall he was in
full view of several attaches of the
hospital aud in a few minutes trained
attendants were in hot pursuit. He
had not much of a start but as a
sprinter to begin with lie had his pur
suers beat a mile. Indeed, at no time
were they in it with him aud the race I
could scarcely be called exciting ex
cept for the fact that every moment
the fleeing man was increasing the
distance between himself and his pur
The patient's home is in the vicinity
of Hazleton and his flight was natural
ly in that direction. When last seen
he was making for the tall timber on
the hills west of Catawissa. This pati- ]
ent has nearly recovered and is not at
all to be dreaded. He will probably
turn up in the vicinity of iiis home in
a few days where he will be appre- 1
hended and returned to the hospital, if !
deemed necessary.
During the afternoon a patient sue
ceeded iu getting out of the institution
in a very ingenious manner. Some
persons were-being shown through the ,
building; the door was opened to per
mit them to retire, when the patient |
coolly walked out with the visitors. |
He was soon caught, however.
It is not remarkable that patients j
should escape. It is perhaps more to
be wondered at that "elopements," as
they are designated at the hospital, do 1
not more frequently occur. Primarily
the hospital is not a prison and the
patients,while under constant surveil
lance are not "prisoners" in the sense
that escape is impossible. It is gratify
ing that the number who take French
leave is so small and that acts of
violence are so seldom attributed to
them while at large.
According to action of the board of
directors of the Thomas Beaver Free
library taken recently,that institution
will follow the custom established in
former years by remaining closed even
ings during July and August, Satur
day evenings excepted.
A Surprise Party.
A pleasant surprise party was held
at the home of Daniel Erdman, Sny-
I dertown, Friday evening, in honor of
the twenty-first birthday of his daugh
j ter, Miss Nettie. The evening was
; spent with music aud games and re
freshments were served.

part of Benton roll
ed up a total of 14
tallies, the Fishing
Creekers succeeding in pinching one
score while nobody was looking.
On the principle that any league
game that we win is a good one, Sat
urday's set-to was seven times a
dandy. Outside of that about the only
interest that attached was a mild cur
iosity as to just how many scores Dau
ville would roll up before the end
came. Although somewhat larger than
at Friday's game the crowd was still
below the average for a league game.,
Benton tried conscientiously save to
themselves from being inundated by
the tidal wave of Danville's bounding
score, and in their endeavor ran the
gamut ot their pitching personnel, us
ing three twirlers. Danville dispas
sionately gave each a sound drubbing
and scored on all of them.
Forty-five Danville batters batted in
the eight innings of the game—eleven
in the second innings alone. Bran

Benton was in the box during this ses
sion— liis last, by the way. lhc little
Brannigau appeared to have it in his
mind to do some execution when, in
the first, he blanked the locals. In the
second,however, he just couldn't make
his curves behave, ami a three bagger
by Hagy,doubles by Mackert and Utn
lauf and singles by Kelly and Aius
worth hitched up to two errors and a
hit by pitcher put seven counts to the
Champions' credit.
In the third Thompson made his de
but and came out unscathed although
Mackert was nervously pawing at third
base when the innings closed. Thomp
son' turn came in the fourth when
he started things by serving Liven
good with four wide ones. Nipple
sacrificed and Wagner struck out.
Then with two out, Hagy, Yeith and
Mackert,all landed for extra base hits,
scoring thrice.
Thompson came in from that pound
ing with the distress signal flying and
Captain Long wig wagged [Second
Baseman Snialtz to scurry up and take
his turn on the firing line. Snialtz
was the last hope and, therefore, stay
ed to the finish, although he received
no more tender treatment than his pre
decessors in the box, Danville soring
twice in the sixth and seventh.
Benton never had a look in as far as
winning was concerned. Only twice
in the game did they get a man beyond
first base. Once in the seventh Long
got to the third sack after his single
was followed by Masters' bingle, but
he died there.
In the eighth the Fishing Creekers
garnered their single point,Branuigan
sending a two bagger into left lield
and counting oil Jones' hit to center.

An auto party, composed of Mr. and
Mrs. T. J. Price and Mrs. James Scar
let returned yesterday afternoon from
a trip to Massachusetts. The journey,
a most enjoyable one, was made in the
Thomas car belonging to Mr. Price,in
charge of Will G. Brown. Altogether
over 1500 miles were covered without
a single accident.
The most distant point reached was
Pigeon Cove, in the upper part of
The party started on June 19 and
made the run by way of BePhlohem,
New York and Boston. At Wellesley
college .Aliss Florence Price joined the
party and made the return trip.
The party was in New York dining
the Roosevelt wedding.
The return run was made by way of
Springfield, Mass., Albany, Rome and

through Beverly Farms, Massachusetts,

The Italian patient who escaped
from the hospital for the insane Sat
urday morning and who was seen on
the tow path above Northumberland,
Monday, yesterday was located at
William J. Burns and Michael Werle,
two attaches of the hospital left ou
tho 1:20 Pennsylvania train for Renovo
last evening. According to all ac
counts the escaped patient is in cus
tody there, and all the attendants will
have to do will be to take him in
charge, bringing him back to tho hos
pital. They are expected to arrive at
South Dauville today.
Within the twenty-four hours end.

fifteen deaths in Butler and vicinity,
half of which were attributed to the
Mr. aud Mrs. B. M. Davis, Mill
street, narrowly escaped asphyxiation
Monday morning due to a freakish
caper of the gas fixture, which caused
the flame to become extinguished and
permitted the gas to escape.
During the night the gas iu the
jewelry store is permitted to burn,
turned down low. Night Watchmau
W. E. Young is confident that the
light was burning about one o'clock
Monday morning. Later in [passing
he observed that the store room was
in darkness. This circumstance was so
unusual that he lost no time in call
ing Mr. Davis.
He pounded upon the door, but
seemed to be unable to arouse the in
mates. This seemed to add to the
mystery of the affair, and the watch
man renewed his efforts, knocking as '
loudly as he could.
Finally the front window on the
second story was opened and then it
was learned that the house was full of
gas and that Mr. and Mrs. Davis were
nearly overcome. The light in the
store had gone out and the gas had
poured into the room, from which
through an open door it found its
way into the second story, where Mr. j
and Mrs. Davis slept.
Mrs. Davis heard the night watch
man knocking, but she seemed help- 1
less and it was 'some ten minutes be- j
fore she could leave her bed or at- !
tempt to rouse her husband. She fin- j
ally managed to get to the front win- I
dow, which she opened with difficul
ty. Mr. Davis was more nearly over- |
come than his wife.
Had it not been for the night watch '
man's timely discovery it is not ditti- J
cult to foresee what the fate of Mr.
and Mrs. Davis might have been.
George M. West, superintendent of
the Standard Gas plant,is of the opiu- |
ion that air got into the gas pipe and
there formed a pocket ;on reaching the
burner for a moment it cut off the
supply of gas and caused the light to
go out.
As an effect of the copious showers '
and the warm sunshine weeds every- 1
where are springing up as if by mag
ic. They are seen in the gutters,along
the fences and on the vacant lots.
They are growing luxuriantly and, if
not cut down, or eradicated in a short
time, they will mature and scatter
their seed abroad.with the result that
next year's crop will be still more
Conspicuous among the weeds is the
rauk burdock, which by reason of the
tenacious burs it hears is especially !
The season for a general onslaught
on the weeds has arrived. Of course
in fighting weeds there is work for the
borough employes, but no individual
is without responsibility, and in a i
work of so much importance lines I
should not be closely drawn. No prop
erty owner or no tenant should per
mit noxious weeds to grow up in the j
gutter at his residence even though it [
be a mooted question whether there- j
moval of them strictly devolves on !
him. Indeed, the same applies to.
weeds that grow along fences or any- j
where within reach. The man who
eradicates them is doing a good work
and shows that he is broad minded
aud philanthropic. If every person
would get busy in this way, eradicat- j
ing the first weed he comes across the I
unsightly burdock anil other noxious !
plants would soon disappear from the I
streets of town.
Nathnniel D. Wolf, J. R. Dorr and 1
Peter Mongol, supervisors of Upper I
Augusta township, Northumberland
county, must go before court at Sun- j
bury on Monday, July 11, to explain
certain matters with relation to a road ;
in tho township which they were ord
ered to open and which they failed to
| do.
An order of court was procured to
make them show cause why they should
not be adjudged in contempt of court
for not opening the road.
The outcome of tho oaso will be
watched with interest, as it will show
to what extent township supervisors
are responsible to the court for the
performance of the duties of their
Several days ago a bull owned by
W. H. Miller, of Cammal, near Slate
Run, and valued at. $l5O, was bitten
by a largo rattlesnake in the field and
now, although still alive, it is in a
very bad condition, audit is doubtful
whether the animal will recover from
the effect of [the bite. The body is
swollen to a size considerably larger
than the usual.
The world gets a little better with
eacli passing day.
A meeting of the Sunday school sup
erintendents and teachers and the past
ors of the various churches of the city
was held at the Y. M. C. A. Tuesday
eve to consider the feasibility of est
ablishing a union training class for
Sunday school teachers.
The idea as advanced by Rev. J. H.
Musselman was that a union class
would have all the advantages of the
separate training classes without many
of its disadvantages. Benefit would
be obtained both from the enthusiasm
as a result of the increased number in
terested and the variety of ideas that
will be advanced.
It is proposed to use a standard book
treating on the fundamental principles
of teaching, the class to be led by one
teacher throughout tiie year or term.
It was thought best not to begin until
September. The class will qualify at
the State meeting held in October.
The requirements of the State as
socaition will be met, it was explain
ed by County Superintendent Rev. A.
J. Irey, if but two members of eacli
school are enrolled. A regular course
will be followed and the union class
will not interfere iu the least with
j any classes that may be already org
anized in the different schools for the
studying of the lesson for the coming
' Sunday. Tho lesson will not be cou
j sidered, the object of the union meet
-1 ing being to fit scholars aud teachers
' for teaching properly by instilling in
i to their minds the correct principles
of teaching and a knowledge of biblical
; truths.
i The Y. M. C. A. was selected as the
proper place for the class to meet.
J Within the next week or two the
various Sunday schools will be canvas
ed to ascertain how many will be in
terested, the results to he reported at

In the meantime a competent teach

Workmen under R. A. Simmons
completed the painting of the river
bridge yesterday morning and the
work is now ready to be inspected by
the county commissioners.
The bridge was completed in about
half the time that was figured on aud
this in .'spite of the frequent recur
rence of rainy weather, w! ich held

The Montour county commissioners
had planned to have the Northumber
land county board present when in
spection was made. When it was
learned yesterday that the painting
was completed and that K. A. Sim
| mous, the contractor, was on his vay
to Danville for the purpose of making
| a settlement, the Northumberland
county [commissioners were called up
1 and invited to come to Danville today
! for the purpose of participating iu
jt he inspection. In reply the local
j board was informed that the North-
I umberland county board would be un
| able to attend a joint meeting this
1 week. All plans relating to an in
j spection, therefore, seem temporarily
| up in the air.
Fred Howe yesterday placed in posi
\ tion in front of his place of business
! on Mill street one of the most'attrac
| tive and up-to-date signs iu this sec
' tion. The sign is made by the Century
| Sign company, of Lancaster, aud is
of tho electric lens variety. It differs
i from the old style sign in that it is of
! the upright order overhanging the
| curb. It is nine feet long, four feet
I wide aud the top stands twenty feet
above the pavement. It will be con
' uected up today and will bo lit for the
! first time this evening.
Other electric signs that have been
placed on Mill street recently are those
at Ellenbogens', at David llauoy's to

Shoop Hunt.

The woman became frantic, and re
turned to tho store, only to find her

Dr. J. O. Reed yesterday received^a
communication from S. H. Gilliland,
State Veterinarian, in reply to his re
port to the State Livestock Sanitary
board relative to the prevalence~of
rabies in Montour county. The State
veterinarian is [willing to assist in a
general quarantine against dogs and
puts the matter squarely up to the
borough officials.
"After going over the record of
cases of rabies in yonr vicinity," the
State "we do not
feel that we can at this time incur the
expense of placing and maintaining a
general quarantine against dogs on
account of rabies throughout Montour
county; but should your borough offic
ials desire to place a general quaran
tine against dogs on account of rabies
in the borough of Danville we would
certainly be pleased to have these
notices printed and forward same to
you—provided the borough officials
will agree to effectually enforce the
provisions of the quarantine establish
ed. However, should any new cases of
rabies come to your attention we
would certainly be pleased to have you
advise the parties interested to sub
mit a brain to our laboratory in order
that a definite diagnosis may be es
tablished. Should any additional cases
come to your attention and a diag
nosis be made we will again take up
with you this question of establishing
a general quarantine.
