VOL LXXVI. INDIANS TAKEN FROM A TRAIN Five ludian boys were arrested at Williamsport, Tuesday, by Captain Rhoades, of the Railroad police. Tliey are runaways from the Govern ment school at Carlisle,aud were head ed for a reservation near Buffalo, N. Y. The descendants of the first Ameri cans were stealing a ride 011 a local freight train when they fell into the clutches of the officers. The Itidiaus took their departure from the Carlisle institute 011 Souday evening, and walked to Harrisburg, where they putin a day 01 so. taking iu the sights of the Capital City, aud theu headed for New York State via the Noitheru Central division of the Penney. They pot iu Monday uight in the vioinity of Dewart, probably hav ing slept iu a barn. Shortly before noon, Tuesday, when News Express went up the line, Officer Rhoades of Sunbury, was a passenger. He saw the five ludiaus loitering along the tracks. The operator ou doty at the first tow er was instructed to keep a look-out tor the strangers, aud if they boarded a freight to so notify headquarters. Several hours atter Officer Rhuades reached Williamsport, the news was telegraphed there that the boys were on a local freight, speeding iu that direction. Officers Rhoades and Leh mau were detailed to effect the cap ture of the ludiaus. When the traiu rolled into the railroad yard at Will iamsport,four of the party were taken iuto outsody without any trouble. The fifth boy could not be found, although every oar in the loug traiu was care fully searched. A short time after ward, word was received from Mont gomery that the fifth Indian had alight ed from the traiu uear there and had been arrested. He was taken to Will iamsport, and with his four compan ions, was placed iu the care of the city police. The ages of the boys rauge from IB to 16 years. They will be held, await ing the pleasure of the authorities at the Indian school. An officer will like ly be sent to Williamsport to escort the boys back to school. Simmers on Roosevelt's Nerve. E. L. Simmers, a Philadelphia & Reading Coal and Iron Policemau who was oue of President Roosevelt's com panions during his early ranching days tells the following story of the Roose veltian uerve: "We were on the spring rdOnd up near the Big Box Elder River," says Simmers," when Lord Alexander North joiued our party for ahuutiug expedi tion. The titled Johnny Bull was a six foot, rosy oomplexioued. proud, and atheletic looking fellow. I tell you he soon wou many friends. He was a clever boxer and had made the bist men in oamp quit before his gloves. After much persuasion the boys induced 4 Teddy' to pot ou the gloves with Lord North. Roosevelt's gymuastio training at Harvard came in very usefully at this point. The Englishman forced the fighting, and the boys just cheered themselves hoarse as the gladiators clashed. We had formed a circle ou the bauk of the riv er,and kept the open space well clear ed. Now Roosevelt seemed to have the advantage, again the sturdy English man ; theu they clinohed, aud both fell. But the cow boy's agility fiually wou out, aud at the end of the third rouud, Lord North, breathless aud ex hausted, quit, sayiug, "I've had enough. * You're all right!' " "He also excelled as a mark&mau, ' says Simmers. "One day when the boys were at target practice, 'Teddy' appeared to look on. " 'Here Roosevelt,' said one of the oiowd, 'tiy your luck.' 'Drawing his 45 calibre Colt revolv er from his belt, iie stepped off thirty paces and fired at a circular piece of tin, the size ot a dollar. He struck it. Henceforth 'Teddy' was more respect ed." A Card to the Public. Hunter's Park has been leased by the National Amusement Company of New York and will l>e open June 24, 1906, aud will foe known as Pine Mt. Park.

A will be swimming. Physical Director O. O. Carpenter is quite an enthusiast on this sport, which is not to be regarded solely as a sport or pastime, but rather as a very useful accomplishment. Piofessoi Car penter maintained a class in swimming last summer. He fiuds the idea very ! popular in Danville. His olass was a large one and on knowledge gained in dealing with the applicants he bases j au estimate that less than one-half of j the male population of our town have learned to swim. Swimming is au art, Professor Car penter savs.that can be acquired by any person, if rightly instructed. The pro gress made iu the swimming class,last year, was remarkable. Confidence is the grand essential. To inspire this while learning a broad belt is adjust ed around the chest aud uutler the arms of the popil, which the iustruotor keeps hold of. Thus supported on the water the learner is taught iu succes sion the various strokes and learns to know the buoyancy of the water. Un der this method, the pupil learus to swiiu before he knows it. The spot selected laut year, out at the second pier of the river bridge, now that traffic has been restored, is too rnuoh exposed to the public anc) Professor Carpenter is casting about for a new swimming grouud. At low water the river opposite town is uot as a general thiug well adapted to bathing owing to rocks aud the ac cumulation of glass aud other articles that strew the bottom. Now that the Hospital sewage has been diverted from the stream it is likely that the class may investigate the river furth er up steam, hoping to find deep wat er aud a clear bottom. Heavy Suit for Damages. Through their attorney, Paul J. Sher wood of Wilkesbarre,George and Emily ; White, of Tunkhaunock, father aud mother of Mrs. J. E. Roys,of Blooms burg,Tuesday brought suit against the Columbia aud Montour Trolley Co., j for $20,000 and $30,000 respeotivelv for I injuries alleged to have beeu received ; while riding on one of the defendant company's oars, ou Weduesday, Sept ' ember 21st, 1904. At that time one of the plaintiffs in the suit, Emily D. White, bonrded a oar of the defendant and as alleged was thrown to the floor of the oar sus taining permaneut injuries of the spine for whioli tbe suits are brought. "w.mnm> BUT TO TKUTH, TO ÜBIHT All UW-4W FATO BWATB OB AM» M HUI HUU A**' DANVILLE. MONTOUR COUNTY PA., FRIDAY, JUNE 1<», 1905 TWELVE BARRELS OF GRAPHITE PAINT John J. Tucker, of Lancaster, rep resentative of the Joseph Dixon Orao ible Company, of Philadelphia, was iu this city yesterday and spent a jolly half hour with some acquaintances at tiie hardware store of H. It. Moore, where the Dixon goods are found. Mr. Tucker's oompany furnished the material—known as the Dixon Grap hite Paint—that waß used in painting the river bridge at this place and the gentleman presented some interesting tacts relating to the quantity of the paint consumed, cost, <so. The tluee coats applied ou the whole structure required twelve barrels of paint. In a general way it requires one gallon of paint for two coats to every tou of iron. The greatest coat is connected with the putting ou of tiie first coat, the secoud and third coats requiring less paint and being more easily applied. One painting is supposed to last seven years, but it is generally custo mary to repaint iron bridges every five years. Montour lias several other iron bridges to look after b.<side the river bridge and it is pretty clear that from now on the item of paint is going to enter conspicuously into the county's expense account. Dunn Act is Invalid. Attorney Geueial Carson has inform ed Auditor General Snyder that the Dauu act, passed by the recent Legis lature, need not be enforced. This is because the same Legislature neglect ed to make an appropriation therefor. The Dunn act provides that record ers of deeds must certify to the Audit or General a list of the mortgages en tered and satisfied in their offices each day; Prothouotaries are required to perform a similar duty. Iu addition, the Couuty Commissioners must certify to the Auditor General a list of the in dividuals taxable for p3rsonal prop erty, subject to taxation for state pur poses. An increase in the clerical force in tho Auditor General's office would be necessary to handle this matter aud the Legislature made no provision for this. Mr. Oarson advises holding the mat ter iu abeyance aud that suoli informa tion be conveyed to the county offic ials. New President of Synod. PITTSBURG, .Tune 14. —Delegates are arriving today from all parts of the oouutry to atteud the forty-second bieuuial convention of the general synod of I lie Kvaugelioal Lutheran church in the United States, which will convene this evening in Bethany Lutheran church, North Highland avenue. About 275 delegates and representa tives of church boards are expected to be in attendance, representing 223,473 coinmunicauts. The convention will be opened with a sermon by Rev. Harlan K. Fenuer, D. D., of Louis ville, secretary of the convention. Rev. W. S. Frease, D. L)., of Balti more, the presideut, will preside at the sessions tonight aud Thursday. The first busiuens session will beheld Thursday, when the oonvention will be organized and new officers elected. It is thought the new president will be choseu from the Middle West. The j convention will last ten days. A. A. Solt is Alive. A. A. Solt,the Nesoopeck meat man, whoso disappearance last week wan noted in these columns, is alive, but his whereabouts are still unknown. Mrs. Solt, Monday morning received a letter from Solt telling her not to fear for him, as he was alive. The wording of the letter was: "Don't think I am dead as I am still among the living. Don't write to me as I am going on." The postmark is blurred, but is thought to be Erie, Pa. The message, though brief, has come as a decided relief to Mrs. Solt, who, for a time, was almost frantia with grief over the fear that he had beeu killed, but the letter shrouds eveu deeper in mystery to her miud the cause of his sudden desertion. Mrs. Solt will in a few days goto her home at Dorrance, Hollenbaoh township, Luzerne county, where she will stay until she makes plans for the future. Showers helped the Crops. The rapid growth of vegetation was" retarded during the week by cold nights and a lack of sunshine, but the generous showers were decidedly bene ficial to the growing crops. Wheat aud rye are maturing with heads well fill ed, but generally short iu straw. A few fields were somewhat broken down and lodged by heavy rains aud wind. Oats and cum improved iu color aud much of the replanting of ooru com pleted. Tobacco plauting is nearly finished in the southern and well un der way in the uorthern counties. Grass coutinues backward, but well set and iu good condition. The hay crop will probably be shortened from recent lack of moisturo. Potatoes and gardeu truck are promising and orch ard and vine fruits may yield a full average. Waite—Roup. Miss Alvaretta Roup and Mr. Eugene Benton Waite, both of Danville, were married on Friday night. The cere mouy was performed by the Rev. Dr. M. L. Shindel at his residence, Lower Mulberry street, at 9 o'clock. RIVER BRIDGE OPEN AT LAST The river bridge lias beeu thrown open t'j the pnblio. There was over a year of trial aud deprivation before the Htruotore was completed, then af tor inspection aud approval doe to official formality and delay, oame weeks of patient waiting,while at the last moment street paviqg caused com plications which threatened to prevent the use of the bridge. Bat the bridge is open at last aud affairs as they relate to busiuess tak ing in both aides of the river are nor mal again. All the delay attributed to red tape is forgiven, all the trials of the past aie forgotten in the joyful thought that the bridge is open to the public. As predioted in the last ißsue of the American the openiug of the bridge although authorized by the County Commissioners, was not accomplished without a hitch owing to the fact that Mill street and the approaoh to the bridge, whiuh had just beeu paved, were not yet taken off the contractor's hands. D. J. Rogers deolared himself to be iu possession of both the street aud the approauh leading to the bridge whioh had beeu grouted only a couple of days before aud could not be driven without injury to the new pavement. Council deolined to take the street off his hands until the terms of the con tract iiad been complied with aud the time limit had beeu passed. To protaot himself, therefore, Mr. Rogers on Friday night strengthened the guard on the Danville end of the bridge, uaiug in addition to the long pole which barred thedrivoway, three heavy ohalus, secured with a padlock. When day dawned Saturday it was found that some one had broken the lock, torn down the barrier aud had thrown the chains into the river; a xtream of vehicles of all sorts was coming over the bridge aud driving up over the new pavement by the Montour House. As soon as Mr. Rog ers was apprised of the state of affairs he again closed up the bridge. Iu a very short time there was a congestion of teams on the Daiville end of the bridge and these were obliged reluct antly to turn around and drive baok to South Danville aud to employ the ferry to oome to Danville if they with ed to oomplete the trip. Early iu the forenoon, however, an arraugemeut was entered into between the contractor, the Oounty Commis sioners and Chief Burgess Parsel whereby the public were permitted to use the approaoh by driviug iu and out East Front street. Only a small portion of the approach is grouted aud this the County Commissioners made themselves responsible for. The rod or so of Borough pavement driven over is used with the authority of Chief Borgeis Pursel.who will see to it that uo troublesome oomplioations arise. There seems to be a general satisfac tion all around with possibly the ex ception of the contractor who is look ing for the parties who threw his ohains into the river, one of whioh, at last accounts had not been recovered. Preparing for Camp. Company F, Twelfth Regiment N. G. P.,is very busy preparing for camp whioh will iiegiu at Mt. Gretna July Bth. Company F, however, will find time to participate in the grand dem onstration in Danville ou the Fourth of July and will be in the line of parade with over UO men. Captain Gearhart says that he will take sixty-five ineu—a full complement —to oamp this year. In this number are eighteen new men. The captain states that he can uot recall a time wheu reornits were so easily obtained aud he doeß not think that he would have any difficulty iu enlisting one hundred meu if he needed them. The activity in the oompany is most mark ed, the attendance at drills being es pecially encouraging. The company will leave for Mount Gretna on Friday, July 7th, arriving at camp Friday evening, where the men will rest in tents erected by the advanoe detail until the openiug of oamp at 9 o'clock ou Saturday morn ing. As a departure at oamp this year Brigadier General Gobin purposes »to imitate war on a small scale. On Mou day the Guardsmen willbeglu what is known as "hiking." The general ef< feot upon the brigade and the divisioo will be keenly watched. As a novelty it will no doubt attraot men ;the roam ing through forests,soaliug mouutains aud hiking around as they would if It was real war lias quite a charm. The "A Wall" tents for the men aud the regular wall tents for the offic ers, dominated by the big compound of brigade lieadqnarters, will be aban doned, the shelter tents used in their stead, and the Third Brigade will not oonupy one sito longer than for one night's bivouao. The scope of th« liebauon Valley will be the territory of the operations. Thirty Days in Jail. James Sheppard, Sycamore street, was arrested late Tuesday night oharg ed with being drunk aud disorderly. He was givou a hearing before Jußtice of the Peace Oglesby yesterday aud committed to jail for thirty days. Handsome /Monument. The heirs of Jeremiah and Sarah Wiutersteen have installed a very handsome monument in the family plot iu Straub's ohuroli cemetery, Valley township. The monument is the work of Johu R. Hughes, of Danville. DEATH OF MRS. LEVINA SANDEL Mrs. Levlua Sandel, of Lewisburg, widow of the late George Sandel, de parted this life at oue o'clook yester day morning. The funeral will take place Friday at 10 a. m.from the late resldenoe. Hie deoeased was seventy-four years of age. She was well kuowu iu Dan ville and throughout Montour county. She was the only surviving sister of Emauuel Sidler, West Market street, this oity, who now becomes the sole survivor of the family, it is a note worthy fact that all of them attained a ripe age and were vigorous aud iu full possession of their faculties uutil the end of life's jonrney. Mrs. Sandel is survived by several sons and daughters. Coal Tests. An opportunity has been ottered the ooal producers of the oountry to co operate with the United States Geolo gical Survey iu its work of testing the ooals and lignites of the United States. This work was begun at the World's Fair Gionnds at St. Louis, daring the Exposition, and will be coutiuued along the lines laid down at that time. The Survey is desirous of seouring from operators and others interested in the problems of fuel consumption, an expression of opinion as to wheth er they desire to co-operate iu this work. Offers of ooal for testing pur poses Blionld be directed to the Direct or of tho United States Gological Sur vey, Washington, D. O. It is uot possible to promise at the preseut time that all offerßofcoal will be accepted, but the ptau is to make the investigation as oomplete as pra cticable, distributing the work as im partially ns possible over the entire country. The distribution of the work will depeud largely opou the replies received to the circular whioh the Sur vey is now sending out to coal operat ors aud upon the present and future development of the ooal aud lignite deposits of the several States. The tests will be made for the pur pose of determining the fuel values ot the different coals and lignites and the most eoouoniioal methods for their utilization. Arrangements have been made with the manufacturers of the equipment used during the Exposition to have practically all of this testing machinery left at the disposition of the Government. Birthday Party at Mausdale. Mr. and Mrs. William Feustermacher gave a party at their home in Maus dale Satnrday in honor of the sixth birthday of their daughter Hazel. A large number of the friends of the fam ily were preseut. Games and music helped to pass the time, daring the af ternoon a pioture was taken of the party. An elaborate diuner was served.

The barriers erected to keep travel off the new pavement ou Mill street were removed last night both from in front of the Montour House aud at Mill and Front streets and Mill street is now open over the entire stretoh of new pavemeut extending from Center street to tiie river bridge. Viewed from a point near Market paved thoroughfare north and south presents a very nice appearance and would saarcely be recognized as the Mill street of one brief year ago. The paved street and the river bridge, together, approximating three-fourths of a mile, affords a most delightful drive, whioh will be enjoyed by a large number of people who possess horses and carriages. Best of all the new pavement is a fine piece of work, whioh will 00m pare favorably witli street pavements in any of our neighboring oities. A gratifying oiroumstauce oonuected with it is the faot that the work was oontraoted for and done by a Dauville man, showiug that oar town not only lias the . pnblio spirit but also among her tradesmen the skill and responsibility needed to oarry oat her enterprises. Sailed for Europe. (Dan M. Curry, of this oity, accom panied by his brother Ralph, of New York, on Saturday sailed from New York on the steam ship Finland for Ltveipool, England. Mr. Curry, who has undertaken the voyage for the benefit of his health,will return home about the 3rd of July. While in Eng land he will visit London aud famous oenters. Nobody lias beeu ooiuplaioiug of dual this week. ONE YEAR IN PANAMA Howard K. Olark, an engineer on the great interooeauio oaual, is spend ing a vacation with la is parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Clark,South Danville, after a year's sojourn on the Isthmus of Panama. Howard left for the Isthmus ou June Ist. last year. He arrived home Mon day evening and is looking exceeding ly well.notwithstanding the onsalub rious olimate of the tropios. He will remaiu at home until the early part of June when he will return to the Isth mus. Howard states that IUB experiences have been very interesting—that life in the oaual zone for tiie tirst year or so affords a series of surprises to the new comer. He is transit man ou a oorps of engineers, who have a camp at Bos Obispo, wliioh is ou the mere elevated seotiou about eighteen miles from the town of Panama. At this elevation—a trifle less than a hundred feet above the sea level—the climate is much more healthful than at Pan ama and Oolon, although not without its detriments. Howard himself had a siege of malaria and was confined to the hospital for some weeks. Along the ooast yellow fever is prevalent. During the past year there have been about one huudred cases of the dread disease among the workmen 011 the caual. The rate of mortality is gen erally about one-third of the whole number strioken. On the more elevated sections the ohanges of temperature are marked aud sudden aud prove a great trial to a person uot inured to the peculiarit ies of the climate. For instance oue hot day the englueers found the merob ry up]to 140 in the sun,while under the shelter of the tent it was SMi degrees. A day with a heat record suoh as above, is likely to be followed by a night in whioh the thermometer falls to <>4 degrees. Ohanges suoli as this sets very hard 011 persons not acolimat ed and the cold, at 64 degrees, which in our latitude would scarcely be no tioe<l, to the engineers caused the greatest discomfort aud seemed as in tense as zero weather in the temperate zone. Some of the engineers were ob liged to sleep with their clothing on besides availing themselves of tho use of all the blankets at their command. The eugineors are beooming more or less aocustomed to the tropical olimate and Howard finds our climate al though summer, relatively cold. O arriving at New York, Monday, when the weather to us was oppressively warm, he was obliged to buy au over ooat. The raiuy season is now ou in the canal zoue, when the air is charged with moisture to a degree never ex perienced in this latitude which adds very ninoh to physical discomfort. The dry season, which begins about the 20th of Deoember and ends about the middle of May, is the hot season, when the weather records described above were made. The wet season does not bring incessant rain ;there may be two weeks of a literal downpour, followed by two weeks of clearing weather. Howard, while on the Isthmus lived through both seasons. The actual work of construction has not been carried very far ou the great oanal. Some dredging has beeu done at each terminus, but the work done mainly is of a preliminary nature. Seniors Play Business Mem. The second of a series of live games of bass ball to decide the ohampion ship of the different clubs of the Y. U. G. A. took place at DeWitt's Park yes terday afternoon, the contesting teams being the Seniors and the Business Men. One game a week will be play ed, mostly on Wednesday afternoon. The first game of the series was play ed at DeWitt's Park last Thursday,be tween the Seniors and Business Mou, the score being 16 to 7 in favor of the Business Men. The result of yesterday's game was a viotory for the Seniors, who won out on the scoie of 6 to 8. It was a twelve inning game, hard fought from start to finish, many ditlioulti plays being made.

May Hill, aged five, daughter of Oharles Hill,a cabinetmaker,was mur derously assaulted this morning ytliile her mother was temporarily out of the houße. Mrs. Hill says she was away but five minutes and when she return ed she found her daughter lying in a pool of blood on the floor. The child WBB unoonscions and there was a wound on her temple, made by some blunt instrument. Pliysioians say the child will not recover. It is suspeoted that the little girl was struck down by a negro burglar,whom the child recognized. There are in dications that the house was ransack ed. The pionio season is at hand and the ants are getting busy. THE ATTENDANCE WILL BE LARGE As a result ot the opening of the bridge the base ball games at DeWitt's Park will now be more liberally pat ronized audit is tho inteutiou of the management to play only good teams. The home team will play at Milton on Friday, and ou Saturday,will meet the strong Wilkesbarre club at De- Witt's Park. On Monday and Tuesday following the strong Ouban Oiants will play two games and as this will be one ot the best attractions ot tiie season it is hop ed there will be a large turnout at both games. The Qiauts are stronger than ever and will endeavor to even up foi the goose eggß the Old Timers presented them witli 011 their last ap pearance on the looal diamond two years ago. Daniel Foost, nearly a life-long resi dent of Montour county, departed this life yesterday afternoon at the advanc ed age of eighty-three years. The deceased was born on tho Foust farm situated 011 the Bloom road iu Mahouing township, aud lived there during life until some nine mouths ago when he removed into Dauville, taking up his residence with his daughter, Mrs. George Lunger, where death ooaurred. He was a member of Kidgeville Reformed church aud was au esteemed aud widely kuown citi zen. He is survived by the following sons and daughters: William Poost and Mrs. Anna Walter, of St. Paul,Minn. ; Leander Fount, Washingtonville; Em anuel. Wilkesbarre; Mrs. E. S. Miller, Mrs. Philip Manning,and Mrs. George Lunger, Authony, Jeremiah, Oharles and John Foust, of Dauville. He is also survived by forty-live graud chil dren and four great grand children. The funeral will be held Friday at 1 p. 111. from the residence of George Lunger, Pine street. Interment will take place in Odd Fellows' cemetery. Woman's Narrow Escape. Pedestrians in the neighborhood of the P. & K. crossing on Center street Tuesday morning witnessed a thril ling spectacle. A milk wagon driven bv a woman escaped uelug ground un der the wheels of a passing freight train bv only a hand's breadth. The milk wagon, wuiuii win driven by Mrs. W. H. Fernwald, was desoeud ing tho Center street hill. As she ap proached the crossing a north bound freight train came rolling along almost before she was aware of it. Sho inst antly tightened up the lines, to hold the horse back and guide him south ward into the alley that rnus nearby parallel with the railroad. Unfortun ately one line became entangled in the shaft so that the auimal would not re spond.while the wagon, wliioh was a very heavy one, rau down against the horse forcing him along until another step would have takeu him ou the crossing just as the engiue oame along. The horse would have been struck had it not been that the woman hang ing onto the line that was disengaged pulled his head to one side, wliioh gave the locomotive suttloieut room al though iu passing it cleared the horse's head by half a foot or so. The woman's positiou was one of utmost peril. The horse was not a large animal and was physically uu equal to the ask of holding back the heavily loaded wagon while the long train was passing. Should he yield a single step he would beuaught by the oars. At this juncture L. G. Little, the jeweler, happened along and tak ing in the situation spraug to the horse's head. By sheer strength he held the overtaxed animal baok. The horse braced himself aud did his beat, but in the straggle Mr. Little was thrown to the ground and himself was in peril. When the train passed the horse was nearly exhausted, while the woman was almost iu a state of collapse. Clearly nothing but Mr. Little's time ly appearance aud his heroic efforts saved the woman aud her horse and wagon. Caught Under a Cultivator. Howard Geiger, a fifteen year old son of Levi Geiger of Limestone town ship, met with a frightful aooident while cultivating corn on his father's farm yesterday afternoon.

Patton was called, who later was assisted by Dr. Hcffa. Everything possible was done for the boy,but last evening it was not possible to deter mine the full extent of his injuries. His left side was still paralyzed. There is some thought of removing the boy to the Hospital, bnt last night it was deoided to postpone action un til this morning.

The subject of decorations is a time ly one. Whether Danville has any work for tho two professionals or not the matter of decorations is one not to be ignored if the town is to show np in a creditable way on 'he anniversary of our nation's birth.
