Fred !{ Fettig, special inspect! r
and demonstrator for the division of
zoology. d(>| artnicnt of agriculture,
accompanied by John D Ki«euhower,
ol Myers! own, was in this city yester
day morning on liis way to John How
den's farm in Knsli township, where
an orclianl demonstration in hooked
for tlie 14th and lath inst.
The two men had jusf come from J.
K. Kishel's farm about 2' B miles from

day they conducted, a demonstration.
Following the demonstration on How
den's farm a meeting will be held in
the school bouse nearby, to night,
where a lecture will be given. The
fatraors will be instructed what sites
to select for an orchard as well as
what trees to select from the nurser
ies; also how to prune the roots as
well as the tops They will be tangl t
bow to rejuvenate old trees that
through neglect have become diseased
—how to take care of them and bring
them to a hearing state. On Friday
and Saturday, up to noon, tl » two u
spectors will give a demonstration on
the farm of J. Miles Derr near Potts
The early winter with its deep snow
aud zero weather is not exactly what
the orchard demonstrators had reckon
«il on but the meetings were schedul
ed and have not been declared off ;
nothing, therefore, remains for the
two men to whom the work was as
signed but to give lbe demonstrations,
making the best of the inconveniences
and discouifoi ts entailed.
The orchard demonstration for the
control of the various fruit tree pests
will conclude Saturday. Mr. Fertig,
the State inspector, invites the atten
tion of our readers to an announce
ment of State Zoologist H. A. Surface
made public yesterday, which is to
the effect that with the conclusion of
the demonstrations the inspectors are
to undertake the supervision of about
■one thousand orchards, which have
been placed in the care of the state.
The list of orchards so put within
control of the state authorities is the

The Proof That Danville Readers Cannot
What could furnish strouger evid
ence of the efficiency of any remedy
than the test of time? Thousands of
people testify that Doan's Kidney Hills
cure permanently.
Home endorsement should prove un
doubtedly the merit of this lemedy.
Years ago your friends aud neighbors
testified to the relief they had derived
from the use of Doan's Kidney Hills.
They now confirm their testimonials.
They say time lias completed the test.
.1. W. Swart/., jii Church Street,
Danville, Ha., says: "Several years
ago I was caused much suffering by
pains in my hack and kidneys and
often there was a lajieness and sore
ness across my loins. Nothing gave me
much relief until I took Doan's Kidney
Hills, procured from Huut's Drug
Store. They restored my kidneys to a
normal condition and after this was
done the pains and aches ceased. Since
then, when my back lias bothered me,
I liave taken Doan's Kidney Hills and
they have always helped me at once."

which thirty-six years' experience on

. nine out of ten people will, when a

lei, walk on the railroad in preference
I, to their own roads, notwithstanding
. that notices are posted forbidding the

benefit of the people and solely to pie- I
vent this awful needless loss of life j
i and limb. In the old countries no one
is evei allowed to walk on tin* roa ls 112
and it would he far better if the rule
was enforced iu this country,but tail
road companies are loath to enforce
the laws as it is to their interest to re
tain the good will of the public, aud
it is only by appealing t«> the common
sense of the people that the situation
can be improved. Can we citizens of
, Pennsylvania allow this loss of life?
Few realize how great is the trail of
death from this cause. On an average
three people, trespassers,yield up their
. lives each twenty four hours on the
| Pennsylvania system alone. Only by a
correct public sentiment can we expect
I to check tills evil. It is not all tramps
; and knights of the road who suffer,
; but it is largely farmers and the mem
bers of their families. Much can be'
".done by the Orange to remedy the I
| evil. If. in every Grange the members |
i would pledge themselves to use only I
, i the public roads on which to walk the I
I battle would be half won and if they I
jdo not do so they need not complain !
■ if more repressive measures are used,
t | A trespasser on state lauds can be and
,i is arrested by the warden without a!
warrant, and heavily fined, aud yet
his only offense is perhaps the killing
i of a bird or beast or fish. Why should
their lives be so much more sacred
112 than those of the people, and should
not the poeple lie protected from the
fruits of their own folly. If each track
foreman was authorized to arrest ev
ery person walking on their tracks
what a howl would go up from the
people against t'ie railroads, yet it is
■> no more than the forest wardens are
, doing. I jet the people give thought to
j the matter that they are trespassers'
every tiiue they walk on the railroads, i
■ j a crusade againsr the habit he car- ;
, ried on through the Orange and much
11 can be done to alleviate the evil."

| Zero weather has not been potent
enough to hold up work on the com- |
pletion <>f the West Front street sewei, ,
! which has been under construction !
since last summer. This is because the
finishing touches that remain to be
applied lie for the most part a matter
of sixteen feet below the r'uface.
When it was found necessary to sus
pond work on the West Front street I
sewer in order that the sewer exten- ,
sion on Fast Mahoning stieet might
bo completed before winter set in, the
pipe bad been laid from tie main sew
er at the foot of West Market street to
the water works, where the two small
sewers to be diverted from the river
cross Front street.
It is not intended to carry the sewer
any farther than the water works at
'present, although it is constructed
along lines that will make it possible
|to extend it along East Mahoning
| street whenever it may bo petitioned ,
I for. About all that remains to be ac
' complishod now is connecting the
two small sowers with the West Front •
I street extension. In this, however. a|
great deal of work is involved.
In order to adapt the sew er to points
as far east as the silk mill, at the
water works it was necessary to lay
the pipe at a depth of fourteen feet, j
more than double that of the small ;
sewers to he connected. The method |
adopted for taking in the latter was;
the sinking of a manhole or reservoir 1
some six feet sqnare and sixteen feet
(deep, into which the sewage that con- i
| verges at that point will be received
i and from which it il will be conduct- j
I'd by the West Front street extension.
| It is m the shelter of this pit that the
men are now working in defiance of
the riogrous weather. Tlie work will
be completed in a week.
The following interesting item from
Minneapolis is going the rounds:
Carrots are used as a substitute tor |
eggs in the evening class of the public
school cooking school.
Necessity brought about hy the in
creased cost of living is the mother of j
the startling discovery. The teacher, |
Miss Frich.has been obliged to curtail j
the use of eggs as the price has soared.
She got aloug nicely until the ap
proach of the holiday season when the
students wanted to kuow how to cook
English plum pudding. Lots of eggs
are needed in plun pudding and Miss
Fric.h found she could not afford to
teaoh the students a plum pudding |
course unless she found a substitute
for eggs.
After a long series of experiments
Miss Fricli solved the problem. She
found that mashed carrots are an excel
lent substitute for eggs. The results
are equally satisfactory. The man who
oats the product does not know the
difference, she deolares, and the sav
ing in cost is wonderful.
