The Annual Cleaning Up.
The melting snow reveals many un
sightly places and has brought about
the usual conditions incidental to
spring. After a siege of winter such
as we have passed through, one feels
that any change would be agreeable
that would eliminate snow and ice.
The latter on melting, iiowever, is
apt to produce mud together with oth
er accumulations that are both un
hualthful and unsightly. If we reoall

be led to wonder whither the second

course, is unavoidable. The bricks are
covered with sticky paste, which makes
it exceedingly disagreeable for pedes

Nearly every back yard contains au
ash pile,intermixed with garbago rep
resenting the winter's accumulations.
It is unquestionably the most dispirit

Nevertheless, it is a period that
humanity eacli season has to pass
through and complaint is as puerile
as it is futile. The best that we can
do is to hope that the change from
winter to spring may be sudden aud
abrupt—that warmer weather may
come soon aud coutiune without many
variations, drying up the mud ami

FIFTY YEARS OF
Mr aud Mrs. David K. Shelliart
celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of
their wedding at their home on Center
street Monday. Mr. aud Mrs. Shel
liart are auioug our best known and
highly esteemed residents. They are
both natives of thin immediate vicin
ity and (heit fifty years of married
life were spent in this city. Naturally
much interest attached to their golden
wedding, so that the function, viewed
in every light, was a success—one en
joyed alike by those who called to pay
their respects aud the veueiable couple
on whom the honors were bestowed.
A pleasing episode in conuection
with the golden wedding took place at
the Mahouing Presbyterian church on
Sunday afternoon. Mr. Shelliart has
been a member of the Mahoning Pres
byterian Suuday school for a period of
fifty years For forty years lie has
been either superintendent or assist
ant superintendent of the Sunday
In recognition of his long term of
service it was decided by the teachers
aud officers of the Suuday school on
the fiftieth anniversary ot his married
life to present him with a suitable
gift. The present selected was in the
form of a dozeu solid silver spoons
The presentation took place immedi
ately after Suuday school. The pre
sentation speech was made by Howard
B. Sliultz, superintendent, to which
Mr. Shelliart very feelingly responded.
I Monday the fiftieth wedding an
niversary was celebrated by a family
dinner. Between the hours of 3:30 and
10 p. m. au imformal reception was
held aud a large number of persons
called at the family* homestead.
David R. Shelliart is a native of
Montour couuty. His boyhood was
spent on a farm in Cooper township
He came to Danville fifty-seven years
ago. For six years he was a clerk in
Christian Lnubach's store,after which
he weut into business as a merchant
tailor, aud for a period of over fifty
years he remained in business at
the same stand ou Mill street, retiring
about two years ago.
Mrs. Shelliart, who before marriage
was Miss Malinda DeMott, was boru
near Jersevtown. She is a couple of
years youuger than her husbaud, aud
like him enjoys good health. That
both have many friends was well at
tested by the general interest shown
in their fiftieth aunivorsary—by the
deluge of congratulations aud well
wishes for the future that were bestow
ed upon them.

TRAIN HIT WAGON
The S. B. & B. railroad crossing at
Shaffer's bridge was the scene of a
serious accident Saturday morning at
11 o'clock, when a farm wagon. in
which rode Freese Kistler and Alfred
Crawford, of Cambra, was run down
by a fast moving freight train, wagon
practically demolished, ami both men
flung down the embankment, breaking
both of Kistler's legs.
The men were on theii way from
Mordausville to Bloomsburg in a cov
ered farm wagon drawn by Kistler's
team of horses. The train was on its
way to Berwick, and owiug to the
curve at that point, tho men did not
see or hear the train; neither did the
trainmen see the wagon uutil the
horses were ou the track, aud the fast
approaching train was only a few

Kistler, however, was badly hurt Both
legs were brokeu just above the ankle,

William McMahou, who lives near
the bridge, came running to the scene
aud the traiu was brought to a stop as
soon as possible. Kistler was carried
up outo the road, and placed in Mc-
Mahon's wagon and driveu back to his
home iu Cambra. Physicians declared
his to be one of the worst kinds of
fractures,aud as both limbs were brok
eu,it is liable to incapacitate Mr. Kist
ler for future farm work, or for auy
oocupatiou which requires a great
deal of staudiug on the feet The in
jury is a very painful one. Besides
the fracture of the legs, internal in
juries are also feared, and seveial
bruises were fonnd about the body.
The greater part of the farm wagou
which was struck by the train was
left a mass of wreckage. The team of
horses, however, were the least con
cerned of all over the accident, and
jvere not even scared when the traiu
struck the wagon and knocked it from
behind them. They patieutly stood in
the roadway until driven over the Mc-
Injured at Exchange.
A thrilling accideut occurred at the
planing mill of W. H. Dildiue at Ex
cliauge Mouday afternoon, when
John W. Ritter, an employe at the
plant, was caught in a belt, thrown
into the manhicery, aud his right arm
torn loose at the shoulder, the upper
end of the big bone being forced
through the flesh.
Mr. Ritter was carrying boards away
from the plauer, when his coat caught
in one of tho smaller bolts, throwing
him toward the big main shaft. Iu
falling his right arm struck the big
belt that ruus the plauer, which oper
ates at a very high speed.
Ii? a twinkling the man's arm was
securely caught between the belt aud
the pulley wheel, ana as tho machin
ery coutinued to revolve, his arm was
wouud around the shaft,aud that mem
| ber toru loose from the shoulder.
W. H. Dildiue, proprietor of the
mill, by his presence of mind prevent
ed a horrible catastrophe from occur
ring. He quickly reversed the engine
■ and threw off the big bf»lt, stopping
the machinery. But quick as he was,
he was not au instant too soou to save
' Mr. Ritter's life.
When lifted from his perilous posi
i tiou, Mr. Ritter was nearly unconsc
ious. He was taken to his home in Ex
- change, aud Dr. Muffly, of Turbot
vilie was called. An examination
showod that tho big bone of the upper
arm had been entirely torn looso at
the shoulder joiut, every ligament be
ing severed. Iu addition to this the
upper end of the bone had been pulled
i over into the man's chest, where it
protruded for seven inches through a
rent in the flesh 6 inches long.
The physician last evening was con
fident chat the injury will ultimately
mend, but it will be at least two
mouths before Mr. Ritter can again
use his arm.

A Presbyterian Brotherhood was

night, and that influential congregation

into closer touch with devout and God
fearing people, to interest theui iu the

The supper and the meeting held a

had as its theme, "The Church aud
"Men of the church as a class are
falliug to the rear of the great hosts
of God in both service aud benevol
ence. This occurs largely because the
meu are not organized „into associa
tions as women are. To evangelize
men, to pray and labor for their salva
tion is the need of the hour, second to
no other call in the sphere of Christian
work. Men of the church have heard
the call aud the brotherhood move
ment is the result.
This movement is the most import
ant iu the work of the church. It
means that the Master is moving the
sons of God for a great purpose. It
means the lining up of the splendid
brawn of the Presbyterian division of
the grand army of God. The brother
hood has beeu compared to a piece of
machinery that is to be added to the
Presbyteriau church's workiug equip
ment to do special work among men
Iu the church there are the scattered
parts of a machine that are powerless.
They need au orgauizing force to gath
er them up and make a complete
throbbing machine Hero is a justifi
cation of the brotherhood. Bring the
meu into active coutact with the pow
er of the church and connect them
with the power.
If a man comes into too close cou
tact with commercialism he becomes
sordid in money-getting. He needs
coutact with au organized effort in
the church to give him a balance be
tweeu religion aud commercialism.
There is a keen demand today that
men may succeed in their daily avoca
tions aud be honest at trie same time.
The brotherhooi is not togo into
politics, but its members will put
Christianity iu all its affairs.
The United States census shows th it
the majority of adirtt males are not iu
direct fKJinection with any Christian
church. About twelve percent of adult
males are connected with the Roman
Catholic church ;twenty-four per cent
with the several Protestaut churches,
and sixty-two per cent make no per
sonal profession of Christian faith. 1
The total Roman Catholio and Pro
testaut male church membership is
about 6,500.000. the total adult males
being about 17,140,000. There are,
therefore, in this country, about ten
millions of men of full age who are
uot in commuuicant membership of
any church, and more than half of
them never enter church.
A portion of this great multitude of
men who do uot attend churoli are in
our own towns. It is our duty togo
after them and bring them "into vital
touch with the gospel.
Statistics show that there are two
females to every male in the Ameri
can Protestaut churches. It is import
ant to note that while the preaching
aud official force is composed almost
exclusively of men the unofficial ac
tivities, missionary,-, sabbath school
and pastoral, are largely carried ou by
womeu. To leave meu to oue side, as
lias been done in the past, is to lose
au executive force, whose value is be
yond any other'alike in quality aud
The world's aggressive work has
been aud is being done mainly by men
and will so continue to be done as
long as man is man
Every sincere Christian in view of
the situatiou, should hail with plea
sure the organization of the brother
hood. The formation of brotherhoods
elsewhere has resulted in enlarged at
tendance upou the Sabbath and week
day services and a quickened spiritu
ality. For the accomplishment of
blessed spiritual results God invites
the meu iu this land to co-operate
with Him. Men are the divine instru
ments for the salvation of men. Of
that Christ is the abiding evidence
aud how great the need of this re
operation with our Lord! What the
church needs today is the blood-earn
estness of men engaged in the labor of
saving their brothers."

livered by Rev. Dr. Hemingway, of
