TREES NOT IN THE WAY
As the work of setting the curb in
connection with paving progresses 011
East Market street it is found that
comparatively few of the thriving
shade trees that prove such an orna
ment need to be sacrificed.
The large tree in front of the resi
dence of Mrs. George M. Gearhart was
in the way and had to bo cut down. It
was being removed yesterday along
with the stump. In order that 110 ac
cident might result either to property
or pedestrians the tree was removed
piecemeal. One by one the limbs were
sawed off and lowered to the ground
until nothing but the big trunk re
mained. The latter was then sawed up
into sections and removed.
1 Two trees in front of the residence
of F. O. Angle, Esq., and one at the
residence of Dr. Oglesby were remov
ed last week to make way for paving.

DANVILLE, PA., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6. 1910
The universal high esteem in which
I the Rev. Edward .T. Haughton, rector
I of Christ Episcopal church, is held, is
' strikingly attested on the eve of his
departure for a new field after a seven
years pastorate in Danville. There is
scarcely a day but some token arises
bearing testimony that he has not lab
j ored in vain. The culmination of it
i all occurred Saturday night, when he
] was presented with a solid gold seven
! teen-jeweled Howard watch by his
j friends in Danville.
I The presentation took place at the
borne of A. H. Woolley, West Market
street. Mr. Haughton had no idea of
what was in store and when the mag
nificent token accompanied with a
beautiful sentiment was placed in his
hands lie was overcome with emotion.
In responding he showed his high
appreciation of the gift and the value
lie places upon the esteem and support
of so many kind and loyal friends.
On the watch were engraved the
rector's initials "E. J. H. " On the
inside case neatly executed by Carl
Ruckle are the words. "Edward J.
Haughton, October 1, 1910. Presented
by tiis friends." Along witli the watch
the following testimonial beautifully
engrossed by C. P. Harder, Esq., was
presented to Mr. Haughton:
To the Rev. Edward J. Haughton.
Dear Sir:—The undersigned friends
who admire you for your sterling char- i
acter, broad Democratic spirit, good
natured and sympathetic disposition, I
find it difficult to express in words '
their sorrow at your removal from j
their midst, where in the past seven
years they have learned to know and i
We shall miss your cheerful smile so '
often in evidence and the cordial
greeting it is your custom to extend j
to all irrespective of class or station. ;
Wo feel that in your departure our
city is losing one of its best men and ;
one who has at all times had the wel- 1
fare of the community at heart and
labored for its betterment and advance- !
merit.and the many homes which have i
been favored with your visitations and
cheered and helped thereby realize
that they are losing a good friend, a
wise counsellor and often a practical
We know, however, that what is to
be our loss is to be your gain through
your entrance into a larger sphere of
usefulness and wish you Godspeed in
your journey to your new home, the
richest blessings on your labors in
your new field and long life, lie.lth
and prosperity, to you and yours. !
