Late Monday afternoon it was learn
ed that the horse and buggy left by an
auknown party at the Shamokln
House, had been stolen from Hanter's
livery stable at Danville,by one of the
sliokest individuals that has visited
this seotlon for some time.
During Mr. Hunter's absenoe the
man who gave hii name as Frank Rug
gles, of Grovania, near Danville, ap
proaohed his son at the livery stable
and said he wanted to hire one of
Hunter's best horses to be gone three
days in Bnyderoounty to purchase cat
tle. Just abont tliiß time a dealer
drives up to the stable with a string
of buggieß and the sliok swindler im
mediately made a purchase of one of
the best, giviDg his note for eighty
dollars in payment for the same. It
seems that the stranger had visited
two other livery stables and had hired
a horse at each place but returned
them olaimlng thoy were not as good
as was wanted. When this was learn
ed in oonneotion with tl>e purchase of
the buggy Hunter gave him one of the
beßt horses In the Btable and three
valuable robes.
Instead of driving to Snyder oonnty
the fellow drove to Snnbury, leaving
the horse and buggy at the Shamokin
House. After bnlug in Snnbury a short
time the swindler offered to sell the
entire outfit for fifty dollars. Leaving
Sunbury he went to a farm several
miles below town where he purohased
the entire farm and everything upon
it. He told the party with wiiom he
made the deal that lie should come up
to the Shamokin House and get his
money. After this nothing more of
the fellow was seen.
When Mr. Hnnter, Sr., retnrnod
home he searched all the barns at
§elinsgrove and Shamokin Dam and
later Olitef of Police Waltz fonud the
missing outfit.—Sunbury Item.
Mr. Bookmiller's Beans.
Albert Bookmiiler lias raised some
polo beans on his premises, Ciierry
street, whioh are probably the largest
ever seen In this section.
The pods are of abont tlie ihicknoKs
of the ordinary string bean, bat it is
ill length that the beaux excel, the
largest in Ur. Bookmiller's garden be
ing thirty-six inches. Several pods
raised by Mr. Hookmiller were oil ex
hibition at J. F. Tooley's store yes
terday, the largest of whioh measured
twenty-six inohes. The seed ware ob
tained in Berwiok aud Mr. Bookmlller
was maoii Surprised to see the pods at
tain sacli a size.
The large pods.it is said.oook easily
and are very delioious. In Massachu
setts they are rained in great quantities
aud are sold by the farmers the same
as any other beans, exoept that their
great length makes it neoessary to ooil
them In the halt peck measure.

_ffl A STORM
Walter J. Lowrie.son of J. W. Low
rla. Strawberry Ridge, and Oarl Wag
ner, BOD of O. H. Wagner,Ottawa,two
well-known young men of this coun
ty, had an ezoiting experience near
Allenwood a night or so ago and nar
rowly escaped aerions injury.
They were attending a festival at
Allenwood and abont midnight were
returning home when they wore over
taken by a heavy thunder shower. The
Htorm burst in its fnry just as they
reaohed the Baptist Church near Dr.
Trnokenmiller's. Frank Allen was
driving behind them and oallod to
them to drive into the shed oonneoted
with the oharoh for shelter. They,
were in some doubt in the darkness as
to the looation of the gateway and
paused for a few moments in the road,
a cironmstance Ur. Allen was not
aware of, who whipped up his horse
expeotiug to dash into the ohuroh en
closure after the two yonng men. The
oonsequence was lie ran into the first
buggy and in an instant there was a
frightful mixup of horses, men and a
mass of wreckage. To make the mat
ter worso the rain poured in torrents,
the lightning was vivid and almost
continuous,while loud peals of thund
er followed in quiet succession.
Ur. Wagner, who some time pre
viously sustained a fractpreof tlieool
lar bone, had not yet reoovered and
oarrled liis arm iu a sling. Under the
uiroumstances ho was iu uo position
to help himself. All fought heroical
ly and great as woro the odds escape d
with slight bruises. Mr. Alton's bug
gy was a total wreok ; the wheels on
one side of Mr. Lowrie's buggy were
reduced to splinters, but beyond tills
the vehicle was not mooh damaged.
The party spent the night at Dr.
Trnokenmiller's, repairing to their
respective homes the next morning.
Additional Den Wanted.
Ohief Factory Inspector Delaney, of
Harrisburg is continuing to experi
ence the same trouble about having
certificates issued to sohool children
whioh he prophesied when the law
went into effect in the spring.
Immediately after the new statute
became operative a hitch oocurred and
Captain Delaney then said that the
same tronble would be repeated, oulv
on an oxtended scale, during tho eigh
teen months until the Legislature shall
again meet.
Under the law no oliild may be em
ployed who is under the age of 14.
Children from 14 to in may be omploy
ed, providing they* hold certificates
showing that they are possessed of the
necessary qualifications. The trouble
now is that no one will Issue theso
certificates because the amount of lab
or involved is great and the law makes
no provision for compensation.
The duty of issuing the certificates
devolves upon teaohers,priuoipals aud
superintendents of the public schools
but they refuse to do it unless paid
and there is no way of compelling
them to do the work. Aud the Depart
ment of Factory Inspection feels, fur
ther, that it is scarcely right to make
thorn do It,even if that oould be done.
Before the law was enaoted by tho
Assembly. Captain Delaney said the
point in question would be a vulner
able part of the bill and it lias so
proved. Under the old law, repealed
by the one now in force, certificates
were issued by anyone qualified to ad
minister an oath aud the proper fees
were provided. Unuer tho oxisting
law no provision is made even for pay
ing the postage whioh those who issue
certificates are oompelled to put upon
the envelopes containing returns to the
headquarters at Harrisburg.
In Philadelphia, Pittsburg aud tho
Lehigh mining oountry Captain De
laney lias been compellod to employ
additional help to issue the certificates
but lie must soon dispense with this as
the cost is too great. The regular
deputy inspectors can not be detailed
to do the work in their respective dis
tricts as they would then have time
for nothing else.
The law is hardship on all concern
ed, for it pots offloials in the some
what uucomfortablo position of being
oompelled to disoblige friends aud
children over tho legal ago who wish
to work are unable to do so tor it is a
misdemeanor to employ any child
without such a certificate. No remedy
is in Bight until the next Legislature.
Lackawanna to Build Terminal.
The Lakawanna Railroad is plan
ning to replace its passenger terminal
in Hobokt-n, which was destroyed by
fire on August 7.and tlie offioials state
no efforts will be spared to do this
with the least possible delay.
Until the new building is roady tem
porary waiting roomß, dining room aud
other necessary facilities will bo pro
vided. Plans for the now termiual call
for a vast ferry and railroad structure
witli sixteen tracks and six ferry slips.
The buihliugß will be absolutely fire
proof. Their construction will be of
steel and ooncretc throughout. The
main waiting room will be 160 feet
and fifty-four feet high, witli
onormous windows on all sides. Tlie
' restaurant will be on the main floor,
overlooking the water witli a view up
and down the river, and a wide bal
cony, projecting from tho restaurant
for dining out of doors in Summer.
Passengers from boats to traius will
not be oompelled to pass through tho
main watting room, but may use tlie
forty-foot oonoourse leading to the
tracks. The exterior of the buildiugs
will be 600 feet long on tlie river aide,
with a oentral tower 225 feet high.
This tower will be eleotrioally illum
inated at night and iti lighted clock
fanes will be one of the noticeable
sights of the harbor.
Looking for Telegraphers.
During the past few days tliere lias
been in Wilkesbarre, an agent of tlie
Qieat Northern Railroad, for the par
pone of securing telegraph operators,
to take the plaees of those now on
strike throughout the northwest. The
men on strike naniber more than fif

Msr. George Qademau, of Riverside,
this snmmer took up the propagation
of the silk worm with the govern
ment. She lia* had a valuable ex
perience, both as to the amou nt of
care and work involved and the re
muneration that is in it.
Mrs. Gademan last winter learned
that In instanoes where persons desir
ed to raise silk worms the Government
would furnish the eggs and that when
the worms had left their larval state
would pay a certain prioo for the oo
Mrs. Gademan wrote the department
for information and in reply reoeived
a package of eggs accompanied by full
instructions how to prooeud to raise
silk worms.
This was during the early part of
Jnne and from that time until the
present Mrs. Gaderaau's oozy home in
Riverside lias been tho oenter of re
markable interest. The quantity of
eggs was infiniteeiiually small, yet
they wore sufficient to produoe be
tween two and three thousand worms.
In hatohing, all that is necessary is to
spread tho worms out on paper and
the aotlon of the summer atmosphere
does tho rest. Eighteen days is the
poriod required.
It was the last of June when the
worms made their appearance. From
that time on Mis. Gademan found her
hands full, indeed, and her house was
visited by liandreds of people attract
ed by the interesting object lesson
showing how the delicate threads
aro produoed fiom which the silk of
oommerce is prepared. It was truly a
wonderful sight. As made
their appearanoe it was apparent that
tho one room set apart for the useful
little insects was not sufiicieut; two
other apartmeuts iu a short time had
to be added and the silk wormß were
masters of the premises.
It was just about this time that Mrs.
Gademan began to fully realize what
she had on iter hands. As is well
known the silk worm subsists npon
the mulberry leaf, which is by no
meauH a plentiful commodity iu this
seotion. Mrs. Gademan was well in
formed on the subject and she under
stood that the mock orange leaf is a
satisfactory substitute for the mul
berry leaf. On the farm of T. H.
Kimbel nearby one of these trees is
growing, whioh was finally set apart
for the silk worms. When it is slated
that ono ounce of eggs will produoe
forty thousaud worms and that this
number of worms during their larval
state will consume over a ton of
leaves the contract that the Riverside
lady had on her hauds in supplying
the sevoral thousand worms iu her care
will be readily appreciated. Fortun
ately the mock orange tree held out,
although now that the worms are done
with It it looks as if it had been rid
dled by a hail storm.
Under their osage orange diet the
worms grew rapidly and soon Mrs.
Gadoman fonnd the three apartments
of her house full of woims two Inches
or more in length. Two weeks ago
they started to spin their cocoon, a
sort of an oblong case in whioh the
worm lies during Its chrysalis state.
Those who missed seeing the silk
worms iu this interesting stago of their
existence certainly missed a great
deal. About one week was ocou
pied in spinning, after whioh noth
ing remained but to cure the coooons
and prepare to ship them to the do
partmeut. The procose of curing con
sists iu exposing tho cocoons to a
moderate heat oither artificial or that
of the sun.
A word as to the remuneration. The
government pays from seventy cents to
one dollar per pound for cocoons. As
these must be thoroughly cured it is
evident that when they return to the
government they do not weigh very
much. Over six hundred are required
to make a pound. It is very oasy there
fore, to figure on the remuneration
that Mrs. Gademan will have for the
most strenuous summer that sho ever
spent in her life.

conslderab'e Interest, as his oase is a
reoord breaker in the medical world,
inasmnoh that he has lived tor the past
eight years with a broken back.
The broken back was the result of a
fall of coal in the minon, whioh atmo t
completely oovered him, his head only
being exposed. After tho ooal and rock
had been removed from him it was
found that a largo piooo iiad struck
him squarely in tho middle of tho
baok, breaking it, and paralyzing hiin
from the waist down. He lingered for
a time hovering botweon life and
death,and finally fully recovered from
his other injuries and grew in strength
with the exception of tho paralysis of
the lower portion of the body. Ho was
finally removed to the almshouse,
where he has since been continuously
confined to his bed, only being moved
when a change of bed clothing was
neoessary or he was placed on an iu
valid's chair.

The petition signed by a large num

the petitioners, although it was very
lato to call a halt on tho work as plan
ned and contracted foi.
The petitioners have not abandoned
hope. Tlioy would like to see the Com
missioners postpone the removal of the
trees as long as possible, hoping that
at tlie last "moment some solution may
be suggested whereby the trees may
be spared. They now suggest that only
the poorer of the trees be removed,
that every other one for instance be
left stand and that in laying the con
crete pavement, if flagstone is lui
praotioable, provision be made for the
growth of the trees by leaving a cir
cle uncovered around the roots as Is
frequently done in other cities.

years lias been found to have its dis
advantages. and the company is ex
perimenting on certain divisions with

ployes aro remote from the banks up
on which their cheoks are drawn, and
are put to some inconvenience and ex
pense at times in securing tiie money.
In other instances employes have ab
sented themselves from their work for
days, on plea of haviug to get a check
Probably the strongest objection on
the part of the company is that tiie
i check system tends to the employes
frequenting saloons in order to get
their checks oashed, By this practice
they IO.HO a Miscount and are also prone
to fall into habits not at all consistent
witli good railroading.
