MOSEOM Mr. John J. MacKarlane, Librarian ot the Philadelphia Commercial Ma •earn last night addressed the teachers of the oounty and some others in the High School aaditorinui ou the sub ject of Japan, dwelling principally on the products of that country. The ob ject of the address was to iuterest the eduoatora of the county in the Phila delphia Commercial Museum and its proposition to furnish free to the •ohools of the Commonwealth a ool leotion of the wide range of exhibits that make op the museum. Dr. W. P. Wilson of Philadelphia is a director of the Oommeroial Musenm and a leading spirit of the enterprise, wliioh has as its objeot the advance ment of popular education along the line of commeroe. The museum was first fostered by the City of Philadel phia,but daring the last session of the Legislature an appropriation of |25,- 000 was made by the State to enlarge the museum's scope of usefulness and to make its exhibits available to all the soliools of the State. In this way will be met the need for education in regard to commercial product", the better titting ohildren of today for the duties that will come to them later in life as the future merchants and man ufacturers of this oouutry. The Commercial Museum has already some seven hundred collections out in the State, each collection comprising •bout four hundred exhibits, three hundred being actual produots and one hundred photographs. Pretty near ly the whole world is represented in the oollectiou with the exception of the European countries,which furnish bat few sneoimen». Three hundred collections are pacx ed up at the muaeum and way be had b; the schools for the asklug. all that ia required being that the looat mem ber of the Legislature endorse the ap plication and the school district re ceiving the collection agree at its own expense to provide snitable cases for the exhibits. The oases, it is true, form an item af ooat winch ia some instances may deter the acliool authorities from avail ing themselves of the collection. Ur. MaoFarlane, yesterday stated that to display the collection to the best ad vantage it wonld reqnire six shelves, each thirty feet long. At some places less apace i8 ooonpied by paoking the photographs In a drawer and placing on shelves only the actnal products. Where the cost is not a factor the want of available pace for the collec tion sometimes stands in the way. The rolleotiou will add immensely to the Interest in the study of geography and It ia likely that in view of all the oir oamstanoeß neither of the above ob jections will be permitted to weigh too heavily. Mr. MaoFarlane'a address last night proved very interesting. As above stated he restrioted himself wholly to Japan, wliioli sufficed as a specimen of the whole. Among the immense num ber of exhibits from the land of the Mikado were the following of especi al Interest: Silk eggs, coooon, moth, mulberry leaf, raw silk, wild silk, of which pongee ia made; also tea, me thod of firing and other processes ueceaaary for preparing tea for mar ket; rice plant, rice unhulled, also hulled—polished and cleaned for mar ket. There were photographs Illustrat ing Japanese customs, showing the various kinds of Japanese shoes, Jap anese carpenters planing backwards, ■Tlnrikisha or carrying chair and man and donkey going to market in whioh the harness and tho shoes of both man aud donkey are made of rice straw. W. L. ricClure Treasurer. At the last ineetiug of the Soldiers' Monument Committee Mr. J. H. Goes er tendered his resignation as Treasur er of the monument fund assigning as m reason the fact that every bit of his time is occupied iu looking after his varied interests. The faot ia well known that Mr. Goeser is ono of otr busiest aB well as most enterprising oitizena. His excuse was regarded aB a good one and his resignation was ac cepted. At the same meeting Mr. W. L. Mc- Clure, Cashier of the First National Bank, was eleoted Treasurer of the Soldiers' Monumeut fnnd and yester day the formal transfer of money was made. There is no intention to permit the work of soliciting to lag but every effort will be put forth to raise the mouey needed for a monument before spring. The next phase of the work will be the collecting of money already sub aoribed aud for this purpose the solic itors will during the uext few days make another trip over the territory canvassed. Girls Not Anxious to Marry. That Stroudsburg girls are having too good a time to think of marrying is given oat as a reason why the thirty odd young men, members of the Ush ers' association of Methodist ohoroh there are still hiittile. Monday even ing was the time net by the Rev. Dr. Bennett,pastor of the church,to marry the yoong men free of charge, bat no application was made. Dr. Bennett's chnrch is full of mar riageable men, and he wants to see them mated, believing that it will in crease their interest in the charoh. The men appear williug, bat, as oue pat it,"the girls appear to be in no harry to become hitched to serioas charoh members." Sunbury's Oldest House. Bonbary "antiquarians have agreed that a house on Third street jointly occupied by M. L. Heudrick and B. F Bright is the oldest structure now •landing in that borough. The origin al deed for the lot bears the signature of John Penn and the date of February 4, 1776, the fifteenth year of the reign of Qeorge the Third. The considera tion was an annnal rental of seven shillings, and one of the conditions was the erecting of a dwelling twenty feet square within three years. All horses should be well shod aud shoo Id not be allowed to stand on the street without being blanketed.

SUNBURIAN SWINDLED Repeated exposures has failedgto be a safeguard and no less than a hun dred Snnbury residents have again been viotimized by a fake magazine subscription solicitor. For some time the Curtis Publishing Company, of Philadelphia, who pub lish the Saturday Evening Post and the Ladies' Home Journal have offer ed free scholarships at any of the lead ing institutions of learning to the per sons securing the greatest number of subscriptions to the journals, A few weeks ago a dapper yonng man giving the name of C. A. Roberts came to Sunbury and made a canvass for sub scriptions to the Saturday Evening Post on the pretext that he was trying to win a free scholarship. The reg ular price ol the publication is 11.75 a year, but by special arrangemeut he claimed to have with the company he offered it at 11.35 a year and as an in ducement for payment in advance lie would give the choioe of a large and selected list of standard books. From the reports coming in he was successful in landing over a fiuudred victims. Not receiving the premiums within a reasonable length of timo one of the number wrote to the Curtis Publishing Company aud this week received a reply that the man was an imposter aud that they would pay a reward of s.'s for any information leading to the arrest and conviotion of the man.

Shults, Secretary of the local Board of Health, is preparing to send a sample of our river water to the Philadelphia Laboratory for analysis. The low stage of the river during a month or BO past together with the pollution of the Btream by Aaylnm sewage and the prevalence of typhoid fever at Berwick aud other points above us has had tiie effect o' making many people solioitous as to the pur ity of our water supply. The Board ot Health has con(1 deuce in the gener ally efficacy of our Alter plant and re gardless of the conditio of the river have doubts whether bacteria or im parity in any form will be found in our hydrant water. To quiet all fears, however, they have decided to test the matter and will prooure an analysis as above related. There was a nine foot flood on the river yesterday and the water was still rising. Naturally, the immense vol cme of swiftly flowing water is rela tively free from sewage or any tiaoe of pollution from infeoted towns and the river at present ooe would think would be the last place to look for baoteria whatever its condition may be in other respeote. Dr. Shultz yesterday stated that he would take the water to be analyzed from the reservoir at the Alter p'aut, where in his opinion conditions are about the same as existed before the riße in the river. It will be some'days before a report as to the parity of the water will be rcoeived. Meanwhile with the river at its present stage the public will rest with a feeling of com parative security,although where boil ing the water has been practiced it would not be inadvisable to continue the precaution Birthday Party. Miss Florence Reich entertained a party from this oity at her home in Mahoning township, Saturday even ing in honor of her mother's birtl.ilav. Notwithstanding the inclement wenih er the occasion was a most delightful one. Those present were: Clarence Mont ague,of Millville, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Keefer, son Arthur and daughter Estella, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Everett and son Paul, Mr. and Mrs Robert MoOorinick, eon George and daughter Lydia, Mr. and Mrs Jacob Hauey, Misses Bessie and Viola Claytou.Cam eron Reich and Charlea Hunter. GRAND JURY FINISHES WORK Willi the rendering of a verdiot in a Sliamokin assault and battery oase the last regular term of orimlnal oourt of Northumberland county of tho year came to an end shortly before noon yesterday. The Grand Jury aoted on thirty eight oases,returning twenty-two true bills and ignoring the remainder. With the exoeptiou of the spouting and a part of the yard wall they re ported finding the county prison in good shape and complimented Warden Hancock on his management. Before adjournment a number of at torneys from different parts of the nouuty appeared before the body and strongly appealed for their considera tion to the County Commissioners for the enlargement of the Court House. After weighing the matter carefully they embodied iu their repoit a clause to this effect, stating that they truly believed that it was niuoh needed State College Strike Settled. The students' strike at State Col lege, which has caused so mach ex citement and conjecture as to the out come, was settled yesterday and the men will all start on their regular col lege work this morning. It was entirely through the interven tion of the Trustees of the college that a settlement was made possible. The Faculty has all through the trouble shown but little disposition to treat with the students ou the subject of their grievances. Yesterday morning i the Trustees of the institution met the students at a mass meeting aud the whole matter was thoroughly aired, both members of the Board of Trustees and of the studeut body making speeches ou the subject. The meeting ended by the appointment of a com mittee of three students who were to meet with a committee from the Trus tees and Faculty, the student commit tee to have full power to settle the strike if they saw fit to do so. The three cirnered meeting took place yesterday afternoon aud lasted until evening. The students gained a number of concessions amoug them be ing that no student would be suspend ed for participating in the strike; that cuts taken ou holidays should not couut as exoess outs; that on Thanks giving vacations in the future the vacatiou will either last over until Mouday or be but one day long; and i that no outs be given for absences drr- ' iug the strike.

The oar contains about 600 bushels. BRIDGE APPROACH ON SOUTH SIDE The oase against the Commissioners of Northumberland cjunty for main taining a nuisance in connection with the approach to the bridge on the South Side had beeu settled and peace ocoe more reigns between the Super visors of Oearhart township and the Board of County CommiFsioners. The temporary approach is to do service until January Ist, wheu the new board assumes ocntrol. The approach at the Sooth Side has been the source ot much contention ever since the completion of fTTe bridge. The approach was declared a couuty improvement by Judge Savage,but the Commissioners refused to enter upon the work aud the roadway at that end of the bfidgn lay in au unfinished state all summer and autnmn. On September 27th the County Com- i miesiouers—Messrs. John Beck, George W. Kaudenbush aud Allen W. Cooner • —who relused to carry out the Judge's order, were returned to Court by Qon fctahl-j Bruce McCracken, who request ed that they be indicted and tried on the charge of maintaining a nuisance at Sooth Danville, of negligence aud of failure to do their doty. On the strength of this retorn Judge Auten directed the District Attorney- to pre sent a bill to the Grand Jury. Ou September 38th the County Com-' missioned appealed the order of Judge Savidge making the bridge approach a county improvement and took the mat ter to the Supreme Court. Ou Septem ber 99th a true hill was returned by the Graud Jury. The September term of court, however, adjourned on that day and the case WHS carried over to December court, when it was under stood it would come up for trial, un less in the iuterim the Couuty Com missioners proceeded to build the ap proach. A couple of weeks ago the Commis sioner fixed up the approaoh tempor arily,expending probably one huudred dollars on the work. Retaining walls were not built aud no one could claim that the improvement was anything like what was implied by the Court's order. Accordingly when December ooort convened iu Noithumberland county, Moutlay, Messrs. Baylor and Kioharts, Supervisors of Qnarhart township, ac companied by eight witnesses went down to Saubury prepared to posh the prosoontiou As above stated, how ever,the case did not come to trial. Tiie County Commissioners made a proposition looking to settlement and had a long tali: with the Conit. The pending appeal of Judge Savidge's or der probably helped to influence mat ters a little; at all events a settlement was agreed upon. The Supervisors were determined to obtain the best terms possible for the township and wonld agree lo nothing less than that the County Commissioners should pay for the work done on the approach and all the costs of the casr\ these terms were reluctantly acceded to, which makes Qearhart township victor at i lie present stage of the game. Judge Savidge stated that when the Connty Commissioners enter upon oftiae iu January, tie will accompany tnem to South O.mville to look care fully over the grouud and that he will endeavor to liavo a suitable approach built, one that will meet the demands of trafflo and conform iu appearance with tiie general structure. State Will Regulate Autos. State Highway Commissioner Hunt er has organized the automobile divis ion, created by an act passed by the last Legislature, aud is now prepared to furuish licenses to operate motor vehicles and the necessary nnmher tags. The law this division in the State Highway Department, whloli becomes effeotive ou January Ist.,pro hibits the operation within the bord ers of Pennsylvania of motor vehicles, unless the operator shall have procur ed a license. H. M. Ontshall, a former member of the House of Representatives from Crawford county, has been placed in oharge of this division. Miss Sara Weaver, of Harrisburg, has been ap pointed clerk. Commissioner Hunter has establish ed regulations for the operators of motor vehicles, which he is now hav ing printed for the information of such persons. These regulations oontain the more impor ant features of the Automobile Act of 1005, which Deputy Attorney Oeneral Fleitz has deoided supersedes and repeals the act of 1908. j ROYAL The Absolutely Pure Baking Powder Made of Cream of Tartar, and Free From Alum or Phosphatic Acid Royal Baking Powder renders bread, biscuit, cake and. all flour foods finer and more healthful. ********** Baking powders made from alum, phosphates and other harsh, caustic acids are lower in price, but they are injurious to the stomach. " The injurious effect of alum on the mucous coat of the stomach is positive and beyond dispute; it is both an irritant and an astringent. The use of alum in any article of food or article used in the preparation of food should be prohibited." JOHN C. WISE, M.D., Medical Inspector, U S. Navy. MORBIDITY STATISTICS The new law pertaining to Morbid ity Statistics went into effect on Nov ember Ist. Under its working the offloe of Dr. O. Shnltz, Seoretary of the local Board of Health,becotneß the repository of a vast array of classified facts respecting the health of the com munity. The Secretary's report for the last period shows two cases of erysi pelas. fonr oases of diphtheria, niue oases of typhoid fever, one case of ohicben pox, one case of pneumonia. The law provides that as soon as a case regarded as commnnicable breaks oat the attending physioian most at once report to the Secretary of the local Board of Health, setting forth along with the nature of the disease the name of the patient, oocnpation, country nativity, age, sen, color, ad dress. couuty, date of onset, name of householder, occupation of household er, number of school children and school. To faoilitato the transmission of this informatisn blank postal oards furnished by the municipality are pro vided, so tbut all the busy physician has to do is to fill in the data requir ed and mail the card. At the expira tion of every seveu days the Secretary of the Board of Health in turn makes his report to the State Department of Health, also using specially prepared blanks, which greatly facilitate the wotk. The list of diseases considered com municable to be reported is a very large one. The more familiar diseases on the list are cerebro-spinal menin gitis, chioken pox,cholera, diphtheria, dysentery, erysipelas, German meas les, glanders, hydrophobia, malarial fever, measles, mumps, pueumonia, scarlet fever, small pox, tetanus, tub eroulosis, typhoid fever, typhus fever and whooping cough. One of the objectß accomplished by tiib new law as the result of tiie very full information sent in,will bo to en able the State Department of Health not only to looate every epidemic but to trace the disease to ita origin and to note its spread and development. The regular reports sent into the State Department, too, when priuted in the newspapers as they ought to be, will serve to keep the people posted on tiie state of the publio health and quiet many exaggerated and alarming rumors as to the prevalence of dis ease. Fire at Washingtonville. The even tenor of life at Wash ingtonville was ruffled Monday by two fire s , oue of which was quite ser ious aud canted a great flurry of ex oitement iu tiie little borough. The fire occurred iu the frame dwel ling house on Church street owned by Mrs. Sarah Cromley and occupied hv Watson Diehl aud family. Mr. Diehl discovered the fire abont 8 o'clock in tiie moruing. It was located betweeu the kitchen oeiling and the floor of the room above, having been caused by the flue of the kitchen stove. The Hre had already gtine l a considerable headway and was burning fiercely when disoovered. j Mr. Dielil immediately gave the alarm aud a bucket brigade was quick* ly formed. It was impossible to get at the fire outil a considerable portion of the ceiling and floor above had beeu I torn away. This accomplished the fire was soon extinguished. The loss is estimated at |SO. The second fire, which was discov ered before it had gained much head way, oconrred about 3 o'olock in the home of William R. Robinson, Market street, and was peculiar in that it was located in the same place and was started by the same cause as the other. McClellau Dielil, passing the honse, saw the smoke issuing from the roof aud notified the Robiusons of their danger. The fire was easily extin guished. Fire Loss Adjusted. Ohabdlee Eves aud Son, agents for the Millville Mutual Fire lusnrauce Company, have made the adjustment of the loss on the J. W. Rohison barn in Valley township. The loss of the tenant on the farm, J. S. Tanner, was about half oovered by insurance and npon the barn there will be paid an insuranoe of (550. New A. n. E. Pastor. Rev. S. O.

RUNAWAY ON : JfIDTH SIDE The hone belonging to the Balti more Fruit Company, whose store is on Mill street,rau away at South Dan ville Saturday morning and made a wreck of the wagou. The vehicle was a covered one of I the osDal sort used for delivery pur poses. It was being driven by a hoy connected with the concern, who was returning from the Pennsylvania sta tion. Just as tiie wagon tarned the corner at Peter Burgei's the trolley car came dowu off the bridge. The horse at once became unmanageable. The motorman as soou as possible brought the car to a stop and did what he could to avert an acoident. The boy, however, was unable to hold the horde and the latter made a dash for the bridge. At the foot of the ap proach the wagon upset and the lat ter with the boy inside rolled top first clown against the fence. It was a most perilous position for the driver, but fortunately as soon as the upset occurred the hoise stopped short. As it was, however, the boy's foot beoame entangled in the mix-up in such a way as to tear the shoe from his foot, severing the leather from toe to heel just above the sole. The top of the wagou was a total wreck. The owner estimates his loss at fiftren dollars. TEACHERS ARE NOT HAMPERED State Health Commissioner Dixon was asked what effect the opinion of Attorney Ueueral Carson,that parents cannot be fined under the cumpulsory attendance law in cases where the children had beeu debarred from school for not being successfully vaccinated, would have upon the efforts the Health Department are making to have tiie vaccination law enforced throughout the schools of the State. "1 do not see," the Commissioner replied,"that it should haveauy effect whatever, as the Attorney General does not in auy way question the duty of the teachers to obey the law of the Commonwealth and that is all we have ever askeJ them to do. "That brings up a point that I would like to make plain. The teaohers iu charge of sohools in Pennsylvania are not required to refuse admission to children until they are vacoinated.be oause the Department of Health has so ordained. It Is the law of the Com monwealth. a law passid for the pro tection of the public health. The health of She people has been entrust ed to this Department, I propose to see to it that the Health law is carried out. . "Iu this dttermination I have the 00-operatiou of hundreds of local boards of health throughout the State, school directors aud tiie teachers themselves. Of course, there has been oppositiou. This was to le exptcted. In some cases soliool diiectora them selves have opposed the enforcement of the law aud have gone so far as to instruct their teachers to admit chil dren regardless of whether they had been vaooinated. Iu despair tlie teach ers have written to this department. 1 fully appreciate the difficult position that this places the teacher in. Par ents aud school directors combine to influence such a teacher to become a lawbreaker. The only answer I could give lias been to quote the law." » FOR JUVENILE EVES.
