following: While ;utting ice on S. Chil

spider was noticed in one of the cakes
about two and one-half inches from the
under side. There was what looked like a
bubble of about one and one-fourth inches
in diameter around it. Some tim?s it
would seem to move its legs, which was
finally only concl'ided to be a notion.
Hut W. L. Wright, who -'was housing the
ice. thinking it would not be a nice thing
in a glass of w ater next summer, concluded
to cut a hole in it and take it out. I5ut he
aidn't have to take it out, for as soon as it
had room, to the surprise of all present, it
crawled out without any assistance.

Ebensburg, Pa., Feb. S,
Et. FiiKKMAx: Iu last week' Fkkk
man I see that Mr. J. IS. Deunv held a
meeting and passed a resolution declaring
iu favor of improving the tow n by devoting
w hat money the borough has at its dis
posal to the construction of sewers and
betterment of our streets and after that to
ihe construction of an electric light plant.
It would now be in order for Mr. E. R.
Cresswell to hold a meeting and resolve to
light the streets. A meeting thai no one
knows anything about but the few that
are invited, is not much of an index to
public sentiment and should receive very
little attention. As a citizen and taxpay
er, but residing on a street that receives
very little benefit for the taxes I pay, I am
opposed to sewering one or two streets at
the expense oT the town. Let each property
holder, in front of w hose properly the the
propoed sewer w ill pass, hold a meeting
and pass a resolution to foot his share of
the bill at so much per front foot as they
do in other places. That kind of a meet
ing will count for something and w ill not
be an imposition on other people.
And now, while writing, I wish to call
the attention of the people of Ebensburg
to one of the latest improvements at the
peoples' expense, the public School build
ing. It lias been built only three years
and is now getting ready to tumble down.
It was built by a "favorite" contractor,
w ith no supervision, and at the time the
work was being done people experienced
in building, said it would not stand. The
north wall is now giving away arid it will
not be long until the building will be too
dangerous for use. It is a disgraceful
monument, though not a lasting one, to
the directors who were intrusted by the
people with the expendit ure of t heir money
and the contractor who erected such a
llimsy and dangerous structure, liable to
prove a death trap to the school children
