Judge Searle denied the application tor a mandamus and stated that the question of costs be postponed for the time being. Tho petition which was filed in the prothonotary's office set forth that Charles B. Edwards was a resident of Sterling township and that his circumstances were such that it was necessary that he receive aid from the township for his wife and six children. On May 1G, the petition sets forth, ho went before 'Squire E. B. Hollister and L. P.

An order of removal was issued by W. L. Harvey, a justice of the peace of Lehigh township, di recting the removal of Mr. Edwards to Sterling township.

Mr. "Edwards asked permission to withdraw the petition for mandamus, saying that tho over seers of Sterling havo fully perform ed their duty. The poor directors of Dreher had the poor directors of Sterling arrested, but this was also dismissed by Judge Searle. Mr. Edwards stated that tho only time he had accepted help from the poor directors was when he Injured his hand In a saw mill about four years ago. At that time they vol unteered a little contribution for his immediate relief. Mr. Edwards owns about one hun dred acres of land lying partly in Dreher and Sterling townships.

' THEODORE DAY'S DISCOVERY KILLING TENT CATERPILLARS DISEASE AMONG PEST SPREAD ING RAPIDLY STATE MAY GIVE APPROPRIATION. i Dybcrry Weather Record Keeper Af- icr jurors 01 jjuigcni woric suc ceeds in Creating a Death-Denllng Disease. A disease has affected tho tent caterpillar, which pest is defoliating tne trees in this section of tho coun try. It is thought to bo the disease discovered by Theodore Day, of Dy berry, who for a long time assiduous ly worked upon the caterpillar In hopes of finding some remedy or death-dealing disease which might be usea to exterminate the pest. Mr, Day, a few years ago. when tho cat erpillar was eating the leaves from the trees, was successful in discover ing this disease. The disease snread rapidly at that tlmo and for a year or two fow tents have been seenl Theodore Day, at the time of mak ing the discovery, told the writer that a' small pinch of .the dust sprinkled upon nests of the cater plller would dry them up. In the tent of an affected camp the worms die suddenly and tho disease spreads rapidly. The death dealing disease is procured by pulverizing the dried caterpillars, affected by the disease and then their dust is applied to live tents. Mr. Day communicated with Professor H. A. Surface, state zoolo gist, about his discovery and the professor told him that he would try and get an appropriation from the State at the next legislature to carry on the good work. To date, we are informed, no sum has been sot aside for this important discovery and un less checked the tent caterpillar will do untold damage to forestry and fruit trees. William H. Bullock, district state agriculturist, brought to our office on Monday a specimen of tho catemll lar tent, which showed the effects of tho Day disease upon the pest. The specimen was sent to Professor Sur face for examination. COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES AT WHITE MILLS The commencement exercises of the White Mills High school was held Wednesday evening, June 4 th.
