The Normal School Football Elev en journeyed to Carlisle on Saturday, and met defeat at the hands of the In dians of that place by a score of 43 to o. The Normalites did not ex pect to score on the red skins, but they did expect to keep the score un der the 43 mark. The report of the game, as appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer, says : " The visitors played well on the defensive, but were pow erless against the Indian line." There is but very little, if any, difference in the makeup of the Carlisle team from that of last season, when they beat the normal on the Bloomsburg grounds by a score of 26 to o. But we will be better able to judge the Normal team's strength next Satur day, when they will play Dickinson on Normal field. Saturday's lineup was as follows : Indians. Position. Bloornsburv.

An unfortunate accident occured says the Dan vile News, just as the soldiers marched over from South Danville. A rocket, shot from the balcony of the Montour House, in stead of flying upward, took a down ward course and like a blazing arrow penetrated the crowd of people on the court house steps; just escaping the head of Rev. YV. I. Steans it selected as its victim Mrs. Amos Vastine, of Danville. It struck the woman in the shoulder, making a deep and danger ous wound. Mr. Robert Russell, who was standing near flew to her as sistance and drawing the rocket out of the wound just in time to avert an explosion. But for the forethought of Mr. Russell, the horror of fire would have been added to the injury already inflicted. Mrs. Vastine instantly faint ed from the effects of the shock and the pain. She was carried into the court house. Dr. McCuaig was the first to respond to the call; he was soon joined by Drs. Kimerer and Shultz. The flow of blood was stopped and the wound dressed, after which the in jured woman was removed to her home. If you are harrassed with cares don't go to the bow-wows, but go to see " The Real Widow Brown " on the occasion of her appearance here soon. This musical farce comedy is a big winner. It is a pure and well told story, and dur ing the entire evening fun rules supreme. ' The Widow" is sur rounded by one of the best compa nies of farceurs on the road, and there will long linger in your mem ory visions of pretty girls, gorgeous costumes, enchanting music, new songs, superlative dances, and ev erything up to date. Oct. 13th. A number of our people attended the Hughesville Fair last week. They report a nice lot of exhibits, but the attendance was not so very large. This week the Dallas Fair is in progress. Mrs- E. P. Williams. Mrs. E. P. Williams died at her home 011 West Fifth Street Satur day morning. It was just about 10:30 when, surrounded by her family and a few friends, her spirit took its flight to the great beyond. For the past few years her health had not been very good, and it was thought by the family that a change of country might benefit her and she was taken to Conneticut, but the change proved of no avail, and her condition grew steadily wot se. On Tuesday of last week she was brought home, where she lingered until Saturday when the end eatne. The deceased was about fifty four years of age and leaves to mourn her loss, a husband, son and two daughters. She was well known in this town, having resided here for a number of years. Friendliness was always warmly reciprocated on her part, and those who knew her easily recognized a generous disposition, and a nature that attracted by its graciousness and kindly manner. The funeral took place from the house Tuesday afternoon at 2:30, conducted by Rev. R. H. Herron, of Nyack, N. Y. Interment in Rosemont Cemetery. Lutherans In Conference. The North Branch Conference of the Susquehanna Synod of the Luther an church convened in St. Matthew's Lutheian church Monday evening. The sermon was preached by Rev. C. M. Aurand, Text; "Be Filled with tiie Spirit." The Tuesday morning ser vice was led by Rev. D. R. Becker, and was followed by the election of officers which was as follows: Presi dent, Rev. A. N. Warner, of North umberland; secretary. J. W. Shanon, of Elysburg; treasurer, Rev. M. E. McLinn, ot Bloomsburg; Revs. J. H. Barb and J. W. Shannon conducted the discussion of "the Fourth Article of the Augsburg Confession—Justifi cation. In the evening two topics; the Sunday school and the Young People's Societies were discussed in an able manner. The conference closed with an interesting session on Wednesday morning. NO. 39 Destroyed by Fire The alarm of fire created consid erable excitement on the streets about ten o'clock Saturday evening. The three fire companies soon had their hose carriages out and using the illuminated sky as their guide located the fire, which was between Third and Fourth Streets, near the fair ground. It started in a barn belonging to George Trump, and had gained considerable headway before it was discovered. The build ing was filled with hay and straw, which furnished fuel for the flames, and they spread so rapidly, that in a few minutes an adjoining barn,, also the property of Mr. Trump, was also on fire. The united effort of the three companies kept the flames from spreading any further although it looked for a while as if several buildings in the immediate vicinity would go up in smoke. Be side the hay and straw, Mr. Trump also lost a lot of wheat, corn and oats. He carried no insurance, and his loss is a total one. The building was evidently set on fire, but the perpretrator will probably never be found. The Hebrew residents of our town observed the Jewish day of atonement on Monday. Alexander Bros., Gidding & Co., L Gross and Lowenberg's all .closed their stores, and attended special services at Danville. The Day of Atonement is the tenth day of the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar. The month is called Tishri, and is ob served in accordance with the divine command, and found thronghout Pentateuch,especially in the twenty- J third chapter of Leviticus, wherein it is declared that the day shall be one of most holly convocations. At dark of the second day, the four sounds of the ram's horn announce conclusion of the fast. Yom Kip pur, as the feast is kuown to the Jews, means abstenance from food and drink and a continuous exercise while it lasts. During this period all kinds of festivities are avoided which might in any way reflect on the observance of the feast.
