PART OF FIRST
ROAD OF BAILS
Not many persons kuow that right
in the heart of Danville is reposing a
piece of the first railroad built in Am
erica. Such is the fact, nevertheless,
and T. L. Evans' Sous are the owners
of the rare old ouriosity which is a
relio of value.
It can be seen anytime at the Evans
Stone Works and wlieu its history is
known an examination of the strange
piece of old railroad is of absorbing
interest.
Prom West Quiuoy. Mass., to the
South Boston tfliarves the famous road
extended, having been built when the
United States as a nation was yet in
its Infancy. Over the road was linul
e'd stone that'ellterefl luto the con
"'iffuctioh of 'the Bunker Hilt monu
ment,the stone being taken to the bos
ton wharves and loaded oil schooners,
whioli conveyed if ve'r£ nfcar tb'tfie site
of the monument. At the present time
this railroad,not only the first iu Am
erica,but one of the first in the world,
is a part of the Old Colony railroad,
the company now using it of course
having reconstructed it and made its
equipment modoin.
So much for the history of it. The
piece of the road that T. L. Evans'
Sous have which they secured when on
a trip to Massachusetts, is just as In
teresting in its antique construction
and utter variance with present day
railroad formation as is its history.
The road was built on granite blocks
aud Evans brothers have a block about
two feet long by a foot wide aud two
feet thick. To build a railroad on such
lines must indeed have beon exceed
ingly laborious to say nothing of the
time the work of construction would
require. The stones ran in the same
direction as the rails, there being no
ties, and the rails were bolted to the
stones. The rails are very odd along
side of the massive steel ones over
whloh modern expross trains thunder
at the rate of sixty miles 911 hour. In
faot a rail of the old Massachusetts
road is nothing more tliau a flat,slight
ly rounded, piece of steel about three
iuohes wide and not more tliau three
fourths of an inch in thickness. Iu the
block of stono, with its rusty rail,
Evans Brothers certainly have a relic
that is worth owning.
Strawberry Ridge.
There will be no preaohing service
in Triuity Reformed church, Straw - '
berry Ridge, on next Sunday, owing
to the abseuce of the pastor, who will
be in attendance upon the sessions of
Synod. Sunday School will be hold
in the morning as usual.
Sunday School aud regular services
will be held November 6th in the af
ternoon at the usual hour.
The Missionary Society of Trinity
oliuroh will hold its anniversary ou
the evening of November tftli, when
Rev. E. M. Beck of Watsontown, will
deliver tho auniversary address.
The Board of Trustees of Triuity
ohuroh will meet at the home of Mr.
H. A. Snyder, Strawberry Ridge, ou
Saturday, Octobor 29th,at Ip. in., for
the purpose of receiving bids for a hot
air furnaoe for the church. The Board
reserves the right to reject any or all
bids.
The Montour County Sabbath School
Association will hold it* annual con
vention in the M. E. church, Wash
ingtonville, November 15th and Kith.
The committees are arraugiug a pro
gram of unusual interest. All inter
ested iu the great Sunday School cause
are cordially invitod to be present and
to assist in any way possible.
Perfect Fall a General Boom.
Traveling in any direction from this
city through the rural districts during
the last two days, farmt r* could be
seen very busily engaged in corn husk
ing on every farm. The weather now
is good for this work and is being tak
en advantage of. The farmers have
large crops of corn that are being suc
cessfully taken care of while at the
same time all other clearing up work
is flourishing.
This Fall so far has been productive
of weather worthy of note that not
only comes as a great boon to the
farmers but right in this oity has been
and is being greatly appreciated,since
It allows the public improvements to
progress. The oandidate is a busy man
nowadays and he, too, is happy with
the rest of the mortals capable of be
ing thankful. The visiting of the vot
ers who live on the farms is not such
a hard task as it would be if bad
weather mado traveling unpleasant.
It goes without saying that these calls
may not be negleoted by the mau who
is looking for votes.
Straw Ride Party. .
A four horse hack load of people
from Oak Grove and vicinity drove to
the home of Mr. aud Mrs. David Coop
er, Ottawa, on Saturday. Gaines and

Car and Foundry Compauy furnished
for exhibition at the St. Louis Exposi
tion an eight thousaud gallon tank
car. The steel underframo was made
at the Berwick shops. The exhibit was
awarded the first medal by tho Exposi

very universally acknowledged to be
the best built, aud this certificate of
woith from tho greatest aud grande *
world's fair that was ever held, Is u
matter for congratulation to the man
ajtement.
SATORDAY'S REUNION
AT MILTON
Arrangements for the comiug renu
jon of the Twelfth Regiment Pennsyl
vania Volunteer Association of the
Spanish-American War,which will be
held in Milton on Saturday, October
29th, have hoen practically completed
and the only things needful to make
the affair a great success are good
weather and a large attendance of the
members of the regiment. The latter
is reasonably assured, as the notices
which are being received daily by the
local committee indicate that a good
ly number of the boys will be on hand.
The sessions of the reunion will
open promptly at two o'clock with
President James B. Coryell presiding
j find will continue .throughout the af
tornoon and e.vomug. From fivp to
seven p. in.,, supnqr will be served iu
the Armory. The suppor will bo giv
en at the expense of the association
aud will be froo to all visiting and
local delegates. This feature will be
in charge of the ladies of Trinity Luth
eran church.
Promptly at 7 :30 p. m., the regi
ment will form for a shoit parade.
The processiou will be headed by
Gaskins' famous military band of Sun
bury, and this celebrated musical or
ganization will also be present at the
oveniug session to play the soul-stir
ring marches so dear to the heart of
every soldier boy. . . . ~
After the parade the camp fire will
be held in Wilhelm's hall, at which
time addresses will bo delivered by
Brigadier General J. P. S. Gobin and
other prominent speakors. There will
also be short stories and reminiscences
of tlie war by the comrades.
After the regular evening session and
until the time of departure of the late
trains, the delegates will be entertain
ed by Harry MeColliu Camp No. 54,
United Spanish War Veterans, and
this will doubtless be one of the most
pleasant features of the reunion.
The Volunteer Association is an en
tirely separate organization from the
United Spanish War Veterans and ev
eryone who served iu the regiment in
181)8 is entitled toattpud as a delegate.
It is to be hoped that every member
will consider it his duty to be pre
sent. Milton comrades and citizeus
generally will assure them a hearty
welcome and a royally good time.—
Miltou Standard.
Everybody is Contented.
The Danville real estate market is
at present at low ebb. It may be tak
en as proof positive that all of the
people living iu this city and owning
property here ore content with thoir
lot and have no desire to got rid of
their possessions in order to move to
other places. Unquestionably the pub
lic improvements now being made aud
the advent of the new trolloy liue are
adding to the desirability of this city
both as a place of residence and of
business and eventually will add to
the value of property.
That the real estate market is dull
is shown by the experience of one real
estate man who has considerable busi
ness whenever properties are boing
transferred. To an AMERICCN man
he said, when quis'i ncd yosterday,
"I really kuow of 01 ly one prop?rty at
the preseut time that is heir. A offered
for sale.''
~ Such a condition i nil right. Dan
ville wants all of llie, present citizens
and more,too. There is ph nty of room
to grow and the progressive people of
the city ieel certain that industrial
growth is coining ; 11 i with it increas
ed population.
Fine Car Barn at Grovania.
The continued heavy travel of the
Danville & Blooinsbnrg trolley line is
surprising. The number of persons
carried each day from Danville to
Bloomsburg is very large and seems in
no danger of diminishing.
The Danville & Bloomsburg Stroet
Railway company yesterday broke
ground for a car burn at Grovania,
starting thirty men on the job. The
barn is to be erected close to tho pow
er house, which is near the Philadel
phia & Reading railroad tracks. Tho
new barn will be 100 feet by 40 feet in
size. It will be a substantial brick
structure. Tho buildiug will be erect
ed aud placed uuder roof as soon as
the work can bo done and the crew
employed in its construction will bo
| enlarged whenever more lnon can be
placed at work.
j At present the t olley cars that are
not in use ate standing on the siding
at the Pauhn farm. They are oxposed
to the weather and the effort will be
made to get shelter for them before
winter sets iu.
Trained Nurse for China.
By action taken Friday afternoon at
the sessiou of the Women's Missionary
Society of tho Ei.«teru Syuod of the
Reformed Church of Pennsylvania an
additional trained nurse will bo sent
to Chiua as a part of the missionary
forces of the R« formed church in that
country. This was regarded as being
the most important action taken by
the convention and when the amount
required had been pledged *the dele
gates became so enthusiastic that they
arose aud poured out thoir feelings in
the singing of the Doxology.
The Society is already supporting
one trained nurse in China besides
contributing liberally to the support
of the girls' school in Japan and the
total contributions for these causes
will amount to asutuof nearly 15,400*
Knocked Down by Cider.
The experience of boing knocked
down by cider is an unusual one but
that is literally what befell Miss Sarah
Bverly, of Walnut street, yosterday.
She went to get cider from a barrel
that was closed up just three days ago.
It had gained enough streugth iu that
short time to shoot out of the bung
hole with a loud report aud knock the
yoong lady dowu, at the same time
filling her oyes., wetting her hair and
making the situation decidedly uu
pleasant.
Public Fountain in Use.
2 The public fouutaiu (has again been
sot up aud plaeod in operation and in
a short time will be painted. It stands
n Mili st-eet at the canal and just in
side of the curb ou the west aide of
the street.

TEND "A"STREET IN THE SAID

PANY. ON WALNUT STREET,IN

OTHER PURPOSES.
WHEREAS, a certain petition sign
ed by the majority in interest and
number of owners of property abutting
on the linn of the proposed improve
ment, was duly presented to the Chief
Burgess anil Town Council of the Bor
ough of Danville at a regular and stat
ed meeting of the said Town Council,
etting forth,among other things, that
the part or portion of Cross street, in
the said Borough, whioh is crossed at
grade by the tracks of the Philadel-
Reading Railway Company
is dangerous to publio travel and is a
constant menace to life and limb in
its present location, and that a much
safer and mure practical route for all
such public travel oould be readily ob
tained by nujiuder-grade crossing ot
the said railway at "A" street there
by connecting the latter street direct
ly with Walnut street,in the said Bor
ough ; that it was therefore expedient
that such part or portion of Cross
street between its northern intersec
tion with Nicholas Aviuue and its
southern intersection with said Wal
nut street be properly vacated aud thai
in lieu thereof said "A" street be ex
tended from its inteiseotion with Col
umbia and Nicholas avenues in a

street aforesaid; that tlie petitioner
was the sole owner of all property
thus abutting on the line of the pro
posed improvement an<l as such was
the only party entitled to a statutory
notice preliminary and subsequent to

bhehalf; that the said petitioner there
by and therein waived all such statu
tory notice to which it would be oth
erwise legally eutitled, and respect
fully requested that the necessary and
proper ordinance for the above purpose

other preliminary or subsequent pro
ceeding as to such notice being had
in the premises,
AND WHEREAS, the said petition
er thus being a majority in interest
and number of owners of property as
aforesaid, in the said petition therein
expressly waived all statutory notice
preliminary and subsequent to the on
actmeut of the ordinance thus request
ed and further asked that spoil ordin
ance be at once duly enacted without
auy otlier'preliuiinary or subsequent
proceedings as to notice being had in
the premises,
AND WHEREAS, it thus clearly
appears that a majority ill inerost and
number of owners ot property abut
ting on the line of tho proposed im
provement aro in favor ot the said im
provement and that such improvement
is of mauifest advantage and necessary
to the safety of the traveling publio
