Hut ire fiebis of unhusked coin are still to be s.-en on tli-: fine farms in the eastern past of the .State, which is something unusual. Many iaduslri.d plvsls all over the country that ha:l closed down when the financial stringency came on, are starting up again on full lime. According to the reports filed in the bureau ot vital statistics at llarrNburg, there were 365 sui cides in the Slate during 1907, or one for each i'ay. Rev. Malcolm A.

The hoodoo still continues. 4 It was expected that Judge Evans would hand down an opinion in the Krickbaum election case, on Monday, but this was not done, and no allusion made to it. The Judge had given no hniuiation that he would dispose of the case at that time. The report of the chief of the Suubury lure Department shows a membership of iioo volunteer fire men. One company alone has a closed enrollment of 300, wilh half that number on the waiting list Jiach of the nine wards of the bor ough is now protected by its own cugine, LuUer or hose company, Gamewell all responding to the alarm system. The Supreme Court of the United States has decided the law passed by Congress making railroads re sponsible to its employees for acci dents caust d by negligence of fel low servants unconstitutional. The court holds that the law is not in accordance with the constitution of the United States, because it goes K-yond the bound.'-permitted in the regulation of intestate commerce. Congressman John T. Lenahau, of the Luerne district of this State has introduced a bill in the House at Washington taxing all coal min ed in the United States one cont a ton, the proceeds to constitute a fund for the relief of the dependent families of miners injured or killed iu mine accidents. To each family made dependent by the dentil of a miner or his injury Sioooout of the revenue so derived is to be paid. , m , American heiresses do not seem inclined to profit by the experience of others.

The Duchess ot Marlbor ough, who was Miss Yauderbiit, has recently separated from her husband, and the latest case is that of Alice Thaw who has applied for a divorce from the Duke of Yar mouth. In the face of this, Gladys Vm detbilt is going to marry a foreign titled pauper. These foolish girls who wreck their lives for the sake of a title Hre not entitled to much sympathy.

The county auditors began the work of examining the accounts of the commissioners and treasurer on Monday. John R. Dictner, one of the auditors, was unable to be pre sent on account of illness, but ex pects to he here soon. Joseph W. Hi. Hay has been selected as clerk, :'.nd his experience as clerk to the Commissioners for several years gives 1-i :: a knowledge of county affairs that makes him very effici ent in his present position. The William sport doctors formed a Trust ;m I put up the price of professional service. whereupon doctors from the outsidj began to locate in Newberry, an adjoining suburb. Dr. Roiish, of Cross Forks located in the West E:ul last week, and Dr. Kline, of Salladasburg, wi 1 in a short time move into the !:o..ity which h recently our- c!;a-ed on Diamond street. New bury will then h ive nine doctors, as a result nf the advance in fees by the Williamsport physicians. The Teddy Hear craze is dying out, according to the toy dealers in New York. When the stores closed on Christmas eve most of the toy departments were pretty well clean ed out, except for Teddy Hears. During the holiday rush just over thousands of dogs, elephants, mon keys and rabSits, made of furry cloth and stuffed as are the Teddy Bears, were so'd, but very few of the great numbers of bears that went into the toy shops early iu the season have left the shelves. Last season dealers could not get enough of them; this year they are a drug on the market. Pennsylvania's Railroad Cotn tnissionerships are regarded as such nice plums that not less than three hundred applications are said to have been made for them to Gov ernor Stuart. This great em barrassment of choice may account for the Governor's delay in making the appointments. Another reason for it may possibly arise from the fact that under the Constitution aud laws ot Pennsylvania the De partment -'f Internal Aflairs is be lieved to have all the power that is conferred on this Board of Railroad Commissioners. If the Courts should sustain this view the Rail road Commissioners would have but a brief existence. Local History Should bo TaugM in Public Schcols. The Williamsport Hardly could a more Sun says : interesting feature be added to the curriculum of the county schools or the city either than that of the teaching of local history, which is now pro posed by County Superintendent Miltior. An outline of the pro posed study and the pedagogic handling of the subject shows a comprehensive grasp of the salient points iu local history, the adding of which to the advanced pupils' work must at once enlist interest and enhance importance. Few grown-ups ever turn their atten tion to learning about things hrs tarical in their own towns or com munities, and a long-continued in difference in this respect has doubt less lost to posterity forever much that has made for history and gen ealogy. A knowledge of the set tlement of one s own town or town ship, of men prominent in their de velopment, of notable events oc curring in the community, organi zation of schools and churches, opening of roads, conflicts with Indians, incidents and stories of pioneer days, and a whole lot of other subjects that lead back into the fabric of early times as lived by our forefathers, is of very warmest interest, indeed, and County Super intendent Milnor is to be commend ed oh the fact that he has found it possible to add local history study to the public schools of the county, .

Epizootic Lymphangitis Exists In Several Counties of tit 0 Slata. Epizootic lymphangitis has been found to exist in several counties in the western part of Pennsylvania. . This disease is entirely new in North America. It has been known for a long time in India, China, Japan and the Philippine Islands, and more recently in South Africa, j From South Africa it was carried by horses returning from the Boer War, to England where the British j Board of Agriculture has been com bating it actively for several years. It is believed that the disease is now entirely under control in Great i Britain. When or by what agency it reached Pennsylvania has not yet been discovered. It has been found in the counties ! of Butler, Mercer, Lawrence, Jef- i ferson and Indiana. Altogether j one hundred and thirty-five horses ' affected with epizootic lymphangitis have been discovered in these coun ties. About forty horses deemed to be incurable have been appraised and destroyed; the remaining ani mals are iu quarantine, pending tli.' result of medical treatment. OiK' affected horse h is been found in Lancaster county, nnv in Colum bia county. It is evident, there fore, that the quarantine measures that have been applied are quite necessary to prevent a geuetaf dis- ; tribution of the disease. The disease is characterized by ' ulceration of the skin and inflam-; matiou extending along the lym phatics, which leads to swellings of different parts of thsbody, most ly of the legs. Gradually the dis ease spreads, aud at length there is so much destruction of tissue and so much swelling that the useful ness of the horse is de:.troved, even if the animal is not killed directly by the disease. It appears that some of the early cases are curable. The repressive measures now in operation consist iu hunting up all affected animals of which any clue can be gained. I These animals are then placed in i quarantine, and the premises that ' have b.-en occupied by them are thoroughly disinfected. If the dis- . ease is so advanced that recovery seems to be improbable the animal is appraised, usually at about $10 or 515, and then is destroyed. Does the Black Hand Exist? Skeptics Aro Inclined to Scout Idea But the Criminal Society Coos Exist. In some comments on the Black Hand society in this State the Wil liamsport Neios says: "Notwith- standing that some people scout the ; idea that there is in this country an organization known as the Black : Hand it is only necessary to read the newspapers to di.-cover that such an organization exists and that it has its ramifications in every j part of the Commonwealth where j ignorant and debased loreigners re side. The discovery in Pittsburg of a school in which young Italians were being tauglit to murder for profit or revenge ought to be sufli-1 cient to prove that the Black Hand i n renl tbin-r n,l H,nt it I,.,,. w receiving recruits in large numbers constantly. In the Pittsburg case nineteen young Italians were found i. n 1. ........ 1 1 r .1 1 in a turn iiuue, un 01 mem unuer 1 the tutelage of two older country' men vmu vveie instructing me laeis in the various methods of killinir persons whom it was desired to get rid of."
