TERRIBLE FALL
Mrs. Zerflug, of Sunbury, who is
visiting her daughter, Mrs. George A.
Roasman ou Pine street, met with a
terrible fall yesterday afternoon, but
esoaped withbut slight injuries.
The Rossmau home is being re
modeled and the rear part of tl) e
house just now is in an unfinished
state. There is a porch ou a level
with the seoond story. The railing
guarding the outer edge had been re
moved and a loose soautliug had been
made to do doty in its stead.
Mrs. Zerttng was standing on the
porch aud unaware of the insecure
nature of the support undertook to lean
agaiust the railing. In an iustaut
■he went over backward falling to
the grouud below a distance of some
fifteen feet.
In falling she missed striking a rain
barrel by only a hairbreadth and
what was still more fortuuate lauded
In a grape vine which broke her fall
and caused her to laud ou her feet.
Uri. Knifing braised her shoulder
pretty badly aud was considerably
the worse for the Bhook, but uo boues
were broken. It was thought last
eveuing that ber injuries are very
alight and she was restiug easily.
Bent Her Double.
"I knew no one, for tour weeks,
when I was sick with typhoid fever and
kidney trouble," writes Mrs. Anpie
Hunter, of Pittsburg, Pa.,"and when
I got better, although I had one of the
best dootors I oould get, I was bent
double, and had to rest my hands on
my kueea when I walked. Kroiu this
terrible affliction I was rescued by
Electrio Ritters, which restored my
health and streugth, and now I can
walk as straight as ever. They are
simply wonderful." Guaranteed to

Fourth of July at hospital O
As lias been the custom for years
the Fourth was again oelebrated in an
appropriate manner at the State Hos
pital. The wards and halls were dec
orated with flags and bunting as a
reminder of the day, and in the after
noon the ÜBoal field sports were in
dulged in.
Five hundred of the iumates were
taken out on the lawn to enjoy the
games, whioh lasted the greater part
of the afternoou, aud in whioh the
patients were the contestants. The
contests consisted of wheelbarrow
raoe, three-legged race, skirt race,
potato raoe, bag raoe, tng-of-war,
driving the uail, and other simi
lar sports. Eaah viotor was presenti d
with a small silk flag as a prize. The
Hospital orchestra furnished the mu
sic, and cake and lemonade was serv
ed as ref realimeuts.
That the patients enjoyed the con
teata immensely was plaiuly evident
to a spectator.
Band Concert.
The Oatawiasa Hand rendered a con
cert on theOourt iiouHe grounds Tues
day afternoon. The Oatawiasa Hull
is one of the finest iu this seotiou
and its merits are well known in Dau
vilie. Consequently it had a big nu
dienoe during the ooucert. Its per
formance was much praised by Dan
ville people aud visitors alike.

EDVARD RUPFS
TINY_LOCOMOTIVE
There is on exhibition in the wind
ow of Uoore's hardware store a minia
ture looomotive and tender built bv
Edwaid Rupp,-sou of our townsman,
Harmon Rupp, East Front street,that
is a wonder of meohanioal skill and
painstaking workmanship.
The locomotive was built by Mr.
Rupp when he was in the employ of
the Baldwin Looomotive Works, of
Philadelphia, several years ago. He
4 was at the time highly complimented
by his employers, and the mechanism
has sinoe been the subject of much
favorable oritioism from mechanical
experts. Mr. Ropp at present is in
the employ of the Vulcan Iron Works,
Wilkes-Barre.
The looomotive is 30 inches long
and 8 inches high, the tender is 10 in
ches long and 5 inohes high. It is a
model of the Pennsylvania passenger
engine, number 888. The patterns for
the different parts were all made by
Ur. Rupp, who also made the castings
and assembled the parts.
The extreme wonder of the locomo
tive is the attention that Mr. Rupp
has paid to small details—eaoli and
every part that appeared on P. R. R.
looomotive nnmber 888 is reproduced
in the miniature connterpart.
The Patriots of Peace.
Remember what Sherman said about
war? It also applies to Independence
day and the popping, roariug, crack
ing, whooping, explodiug that drives
folk almost to insanity and means that
we are a nation of patriots and are so
glad of it that every year we burn
tons of powder and maim, mutilate
and oripple between 4,000 and 5,000
human beings—mostly boys
And the popular idea of patriotism
is war. We are glad we fought or
that our ancestors fought, and the
hair bristles on the back of our necks,
and we feel, by hokey. that we cau
tight again and that the foreigners
from London Town to Vladivostok
had better keep off the toes of your
Uncle Sam. Huh !
All right. The navy is growing
aud we are spending millions for tar
get practice and more millions for
great guns. But let's hope hard that
there will never be another war, and
that widows aud orphans will never
again be made in a strife with other
nations or at home God grant it, is
the prayer of the millions. •
A patriot isn't necessarily a soldier.
A man doesn't have to storm a fort to
prove that he loves his country. That
kiud of bravery is fine. It gets into
the papers and there is a thrill of
pride even in the later days when
flowers are strewn on graves and wom
en in black weep.
But don't you forget that there ate
more patriots today than ever before.
There are millions of them. They are
behiud oouuters and In shops; they
are ruuniug locomotives and tilling
farms. They are not thinking much
aboat war. They have no hatred in
their hearts.
Au<i how is it that tliey are patriota?
Booausn they are tryiug to do their
duty as American citizens. That is
how.
Tiiey toil till their backs are stoop
ed and their hands gnarled and knot
ted. They rear homes aud honor good
women. They bring up children and
eduoate them. They do not hesitate
to deny themselves to the end that
those who ooine after them Bhall find
greater opportunity and till a better
place iu the affairs of the world thau
did their pareuta.
They are the fathers and mothers of
progress. They are the bone and
blood and sinew that make the nation
strong. They are the living exponents
of charity, decenoy, energy and hum
an love, and they are stronger than
the combined armies and navies of the
world.
And so. while the explosions in
memory of '7O shake the earth, bo
glad that you are a worthy member of
that great army—The Patriots of
Peace.
God guide thein all.

DEFY HARD LUCK.
A Pew Hits of Wholftnomr AdTto*
Fur the PeHlmlatl.
Don't talk about your hard luck.
Rofuse to recognize It. ltefueo to be
lieve In it. Scorn to whine about It.
Get the whine out of your voice, or It
will stop tbe development and growth
of your body. It will narrow and
shrink your mind. It will drlvo nway
your friends. It will make you unpop
ular. Quit your whining; brace up; go
to work; be something; stand for some
thing; fill your place In the universe.
Instead of whining around, exciting
only pity and contempt, face about and
make something of yourself. Ileach up
to the staturo of n strong, ennobling
womanhood, to the beauty and strength
of a superb womanhood. There Is
nothing the matter with you. Just qult_
your whining and goto work.
If you continually talk about your
bad luck and moan about your 111 for
tune, you create for yourself an atmos
phere of misfortune which will certain
ly overwhelm you unless you stop In
time.
The man or woman who persistently
fears that such and such a thing Is not
going to turn out well Is enl|t<tlng pow
erful forces against success.—Boston
Traveler.
Convenient.
There was once Inn North Carolina
court a case that has gone down as
history In the Judicial cnnals of tbe
state. It appears that a debtor named
Jenkins, when solicited to close an old
open account by note, agreed to do so
provided he should be allowed to draft
tbe instrument. This was granted him,
whereupon he presented the creditor
with the following:
"I, Samuel Jenkins, agree to pay
John Hugglus S2OO whenever conven
ient, but It Is understood that said Jen
j Una Is not to be pushed. Witness my
' hud and seal this day of
Han Ml Jenkins."—Harper's WmUi
MAY RESULT IN
PERMANENT CHORUS
It is believed that ont of the grand
chorus, which was so successful
dered at the Court House, Fourth of
July, will grow a permanent chorus
heuoeforth to be maintained in our
town.
The chorus proved one of the great
est features of the celebration, and
hundreds of people, it is said, came to
Danvillo expressly for the pleasure of
hearing it. It is gratifying that they
were not disappointed.
It was indeed a Ann success, marked
by harmouy, correot reading with all
the lights and shades essential to the
fullest eHeot. Dr. Stock is a thor
ough musician and he ha? proven
himself a most competent director.
The chorus was Dr. Stook's own con
ception and it must be highly gratify
ing to him that it soored such a suc
cess and that it was so highly appre
ciated by the public. That in prepar
ing for the ohorus Dr. Stock sacrificed
much of his own valuable time goes
without saying.

resolutions demaudiug that the Grand

increasing the rates. The resolutions
declare: "We do not oonoede the
right of the Supreme Couucil to
change tho existing rates of assess
ment that shall force the older mem
bers out of-order. We', therefore, pro
test against the notion bf the Supreme
Council as an injustice to all mem

is a violation of promises made to all

The game of bus ball at Dewitt'a

Yesterday morning he suddenly grew

the leading institutions of thia sec*
tion. He organized several financial
inatitationa among them the Wyomiug
Valley Trnat Oompauy. la 1894 he
organized the Timea aud waa the
president and editor until the day of
hia death.
Mr. Flick waa alao interested in
many other enterpriaeß.
Liddon Flick waß a man highly re

GAR OPERATED
JESTERDAY
The car of the Danville and Hun
bury Street Railwav Company, re
cently equipped, made its initial trip
yesterday .forenoon and last eveniug
egan making regnlar trips for the
the public.
About 9 o'clock the oar was brought
out of the Structural Tubing yard aud
plaoed on the trolley track. The our
reut was turned on and it was brought
down the street as far as George
Boat's undertaking establishment
where the steps were atcaohed and
some other work was done. The car
was detained there for an hour or
more. About 11 o'clock everything
was ready and the oar started on its
initial trip down East Market street.
A large crowd of men aud boys had
assembled at the spot wataliing the
workmen as they fastened on the steps.
Wlieu the oar was ready to start as
many men aud boys as could gain ad
mittance climbed into the car, which
was soon packed fnll. Several seats in
the front of the car were reserved for
a company of ladies, who had been
invited to share the honor of inakiug
the initial trip.
Among the ladies on board the car
when it started were: Mrs. O. P.
Hancock, Miss Jennie Hancock, Mrs.
. A. Heller, Mrs. A. H. Woolley,
Mr. T. J. Price, Mrs. J. B. Cleaver.
Miss Martha Harpel, Miss Josephine
Cousart and Miss .Tames also onjoynd
a ride ou the first trip.
The car was in uliarge of W. A.
Heller. O. P. Hanoock, President,
aud O. C. Yetter, Attorney of tiie Com
pany, were also on the oar along with
Howard Heller, A. H. Woolley and n
representative of the Morning News.
The car rounded the onrve at the
Montour House very nioely and pro
ceeded at far as tho Court House
where a rather lengthy stop occurred
while some parts of the rnnuing gear
were readjusted, after which the car
proceeded to tho river bridge wlier#
it was halted while W. G. Brown,
who was on board with his camera,
took a picture of the car filled with
passengers.
The oar then retraoed its way run
ning up to the eastern terminus of
the road and later back again, part
wav across tho river bridge. With
eacli succeeding trip the car ran more
easily, rounding the curve at the Mon
tour House without the least difficul
ty. About six o'clock it ran all the
way aoross the river bridge and from
then on made regular trips.
Riobard Hullihen and J. O. Eyorly
will act as conductors on the new
line. H. D. Farnswoith, who hails
from Sunfcury, will be the motorman.
With today the car will run ou a reg
ular schedule.
W. A. Heller last evening stated
that the oar will be run as long as
business warrants it Should there
not be sufficient busiuess tlie company
will suspend running until the track
is completed to a further point.
Workmen are omployed at present in
laying the track to the Ho'pita! for
the Insane. It will probubly be but a
very short time until the track will
be completed so as to permit the oom
pany to do business ou a paying basis.
The resideuts along Eait Market
street are delighted with the progress
made and at every point the approach
of the oar on its initial trip was bail
ed wi tli delight.
In spite of the many obstacles en
oountered the ruuning of the first oar
has been brought about iu an incred
ibly short period of time, all of which
is due to the perseverance and good
management of W. A. Heller the orig
inal promoter, aud the other practioal
men who have since beoome associat

Face Ponder In Cuba.
In Cuba there has never apparently
been any dearth of face powder even
among the lowliest. The Cuban wom
an, octopennrlnn an well as "sweet sev
enteen," considers powder a more neces
sary article of the toilet than soap and
water and utterly indispensable to her
attractiveness, which it is her absolute
duty to preserve. All classes of the
community are devoted to the powder
puff, from the little six-year-old orphan
in the asylum to the lady of high de
| gree. In aay Cuban school teachers
and pupils are alike unsparingly pow
dered, and a powder box is to be found
in every desk and as likely as not keep
ing company with the chalk used for
the blackboard.
Re«l Ilnlr uud Snnntrolce.
Nobody ever heard of a red headed
man being suustruck. Why a red head
should afford any protecNon from the
rays of the sun or give its owner fin
munity from one of the most singular
affections that humanity Is heir to is
one of those mysteries that even the
doctors cannot fathom, but the fact
remains that men with red hair can
stand almost any amount of exertion
in or out of doors during the hottest
weather and never feel any serious re

FLORIDA'S EXTENT.
The Everglade Stnte In Larger Than
MiiHt Folk. Imagine.
But few people have any conception
Of Florida's extent. Jacksonville is
nbout us far north of Miami as she is
south of Charlotte, N. C.; about us far
north of Key West us she Is south of
Danville, Va. Ignorance of the extent
of Florida leads to many amusing mis
takes. We sometimes hear the rail
roads of the state charged with mak
ing poor time. Why, It takes over
twenty-four hours togo from I'ensa
eola to Miami. The man who makes
tills remark would think he was travel
ing on a flier If he made the trip from
l'onsacola to Chicago in the name
length of time It would take him togo
lo Miami. But there Is very little dif
ference In the distance. A land trip
from one end of Florida to the other is
as long as from the lakes to the gulf.
A citizen of Maine who makes up his
mind to come south may get on the
cars and pass through Maine, New,
Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecti
cut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsyl
vania, Delaware, Maryland, the Dis
trict of Columbia and far Into Virginia.
When he has done this he has taken
no longer ride than he could have tak
en by an equally direct line from one
Florida town to another, and there are
some men green enough to think they
ure making pemr time when they And
it takes them longer togo from I'ensa- i
cola to Miami than from the eastern
to the western side of Maine. Of
course the old stagers do not make
these umuslng mistakes. They have a
pretty clear conception of the geogra
phy of Florida. There aro many, how
ever, who come oil their first visit with
very hazy Ideas of the state.—Florida

THE POWER TO PLEASE.
A rotent Factor For Succe-na In Any
Career You liny Adopt.
The power to please 1m a tremendous
asset. What can bfc- more valuable
than a personality which always at
tracts, never repels? It Is not only
valuable In business, but also In every
field of life. It makes statesmen and
politicians; it brings clients to the law
yer and patients to the physician; It is
worth everything to the clergyman. No
matter what career you enter, you can
not overestimate tire Importance of cul
tivating that cliarin of manner, those
: personal qualities, which attract people
to you. Tbey will take the place of
capital or influence; they are often a
Bubsmuto for a large amount of hard
work.
Borne men attract business, custom
ers, clients, patients, as naturally as
magnets attract particles of steel. Ev
erything seems to point their way, for
the same reason that the steel particles
point toward the magnet because they
are attracted.
Such men are business magnets.
Business moves toward them even
when they do not apparently make half
so much effort to get it as the less suc
cessful. Their friends call them "lucky
dogs." But if we analyze these men
closely we lind that they have attrac
tive qualities. There is usually some
charm of personality about them that
wins all hearts.- Success.
Wild Flowers of Alaska.
I Up In"green Alaska," as John Bnr-
I roughs found it, the predominating col
-1 or of the wild flowers Is blue. The wild
geranium Is blue and tinges the slopes
j as daisies aiuL buttercups do with us.
| He speaks of "patches of a most ex
] qulslte forgetmenot of pure, delicate
! blue with yellow center thut grew to
the height of about a foot. A handful
of it looked like something jilst caught
out of the sky above." In another par
agraph lie of the forgetmenot
growing round an Eskimo encampment
at Plover.bay, within sight of the Sibe
rian coast, that was scarcely an inch
high, of deep ultramarine blue, "the
deepest, most intense blue I ever saw
Iq a wild flower."
