Notwithstanding that the Board of Health
says the health of the people is good, there
is a great deal of sickness everywhere
throughout the valley. There is no partic
ular type of disease, but more people are
troubled with malarial fever and nervous
prostration than from any other cause.
It is painfully evident that serious incon
venience will soon be experienced if several
good bridges are not built. The temporary
structures erected after the flood are not
ofsufficieDt strength or capacity for the de

aigns of weakening. The one crossing the

AT TnB INSANE HOSPITAL
An Attendant nt NorrUtoivo Said to Be In
sane Other Cnrlon Cities
Noeristown, August 22. "It's a won
der that the attendants do not become in
sane because of their constant association
with insane people," is a remark which
visitors to the State Hospital for the Insane
frequently make. The first case of this
kind has just occurred at tbo Korristown
Hospital. Mrs. A. M. Richardson, of Phil
adelphia, an attendant on the female side
of the State institution, has become insane,
bat it is said that worry occasioned by do
mestic troubles is the cause, and not the re
sult ot her hospital duties. A commission
in lunacy is investigating her case to-day,
and if it is established that she is insane
she will be formally committed to the hos
pital as a patient.
Charles Streeper, of riourtown, Mont
gomery county, ii a patient at the State Hos
pital lor the Insane and thinks he ought to
be released. He claims that he has recov
ered and has employed counsel to secure a
writ of habeas corpus and have his plea
heard by the court. Streeper is possessed of
considerable property and declares that his
interest! are sufiering because of his confine
Not long ago a patient nt the hospital de
cided that he ouclit to be released and also
employed counsel to get him before the
court on a writ of habeas corpus. J.ne
patient wrote out a check on a Washington
bank for $150, which he sent to his counsel.
The check was written on an ordinary piece
of paper, but when it was sent to "Washing
ton where the patient had money on deposit
the check was promptly paid. The patient's
friends had not soon enough notified the
bank not to cash any checks bearing his
name. The patient when brought into
court failed to establish his claim of sanity
and was sent back to the hospital.

10.30 this morning. The train was the first

It was impossible to obtain medical aid

back on flat cars, and the last Bart of the
journey was made in a driving rain. Three

East Tennessee; S. T. Powers, the leading
merchant and former President of the East

ONE OF THE GIANTS HAPFI.
TimKeefe Married at Worcester to John
tsrxcuj. tzxeohaic to thi Disra.Tcn.1
New Yobk, August 22. The gloom of
disaster which overwhelmed the Giant ball
players down East was brightened by at
least one happy incident. It was a fitting
sequel to a long and checkered love affair,
and through it Timothy J. Keefe, the fa
mous twirler, and Mrs. Helm, the sister of
Mrs. Helen Dauvray "Ward, became man
and wife. The marriage ceremony took
place on Monday morning at the house of a
clergyman at Worcester, Mass. Mrs. Ward
was the only member of either familv pres
ent Mrs. Ward witnessed the first Boston
game, and left for New York in the evening,
and, it is presumed, was accompanied by
Mrs. Keefe. Mr. Keefe pitched the next
day. The affair was kept absolutely quiet,
but it leaked out to-day.
The marriage was not entirely unexpected
to people familiar with Keefe's private
affairs. It was known by a few people tbat
the two parties most concerned were deeply
interested in each other, and their marriage
was opposed by Mrs. Helm's relatives. She
is said to be quite wealthy, and to have fur
nished Mrs. Ward with financial backing
in her theatrical ventures. Keefe is said to
have made 540,000 in his profession, and, be
side playing ball, is engaged in a flourish
ing sporting goods business on lower Broad
way. Work on the Cnblo Lines.
A gentleman connected with the building
of the Wylie avenue and Birmingham cable
lines said last night that trie Wylie avenue
line would be done by October 1. The
power houso will not be ready until Novem
ber 1, when the line will commence to oper
ate. Work will be commenced on the new
Birmingham line by October 1, and pushed
as fast as possible.

Mrs. Or. Chandler Hurled Down an Em

Mrs. Dr. A. F. Chandler, of Butler,
while walking on the railroad track near
the depot this evening at Greenabnrg, was
struck by the Johnstown accommoda

A FEAR OF GLANDEBS.
A Dreaded Horse Disease Bald M Have
Made Its Appearance.
The glanders, a horse disease, lias, it i
feared, made its appearance in the neigh
borhood of Pittsburg. Grant Hays, living
on the Brownsville road, and the owner of
considerable valuable stock, several days
ago noticed that one of his horses was ill.
It had the swelllnc and other symptoms
of glanders, and Mr. Hays called in several
veterinary surgeons. They were unable to
determine if the disease was glanders, bat
said that there was every indication of it.
Another examination will be made of the
animal to-day by Dr. Barcbfield. The horse
was valued at $500.

The Deutsche WafTengenaa&cn, an associ
