Miller, Gen'l Manager RABBI TO LEAVE B'NAI ZION Kabbi Joseph Zeisler, of the B'uai Zion Congregation} has tendered his resignation which has been accepted. The Kabbi has taken this step on ac count of the ill health of his wife that he may do vote more time to her com fort: Rabbi Zoislor is most popular not only with the members of his con gregation but also among all the peo ple of Danville, who have oame to know him. The letter from the trustees of the B'nai Zion congregation shows how deeply his people feel their loss : From the congregation B'nai Zion, of Danville to tho Rev. Joseph Zoisler. Revered Sir:—At a meetiug hold this morning by tho moinbers of the congregation of B'nai Zion your resig nation as Rabbi of our congregation was read and with much regret accept ed. I aiu instructed by our congregation to express to yqu.sir, our appreciation for your good efforts ami satisfactory services rendered to the welfare of our congregation and assure you of our esteem and wish you best success for the future. H. L. GROSS, R. L. MARKS, HARRY ELLENBOGEN, Trustees. Rabbi Zeisler's term with B'nai Zion congregation does not expire for two mouths, and it was decided at a con gregational meeting to continue his salary during that time, although ho will not act as Rabbi. It is Rabbi Zoislor's intention togo South with his wife as soon as her condition will permit the trip. Appealing to Dr. Dixon. The old canal, which is such a nuis ance ami a menace in Dauvillo is also a dreadful annoyance to the people of Bloomsburg. At that place tho citi zens have addrossed a numerously sigu ed petition to State Health Commis sioner Dr. Samuel Dixon,representing that the abandoned canal by reason of the the stagnant water it contains, is a menace to public health and request ing that tho State board of health take such steps as will immediately abate the uuisauce. Danville has already appealed to the State board of health, not through a numerously sigued petition, it is true, but through the local board of health, a medium which should be as effec tive. The rospouso, however, was not of a sort to inspire much confidence among our citizens. Dr. Dixon, accepting tho facts as presented merely stated that, if the canal was a nuisance, tho owners should be obliged to abate it. Should they refuse to do so, Dr. fcDixon sug gested that tho borough make such im provements as necessary and enter a lieu upon tho canal property. The local authorities were not impressed with the practicability of this scheme aud nothing was done in the premises. The situation at Bloomsburg is uot nearly so bad as at Danville, as the eanal instead of iutersectiug the heart of the town as here merely affects tho outlyiug portions. However, if the situation there calls for such prompt aud determiuod measures surely Dan ville can not afford to remain passive in the matter. Nearly a year has elaps ed since the matter was laid before the State board of health. It might bo a good thing to tako up the subjoct again. Dr. Dixon might have some thing uew to offer. Birthday Surprise Party. A very pleasaut birthday surprise party was tendered C. E. Soes at his home 011 Riverside Heights Friday evening in houor of his 89th birth day.

SOUVENIRS OF THE BATTLE FIELD A couplo of very interesting souven irs of the civil war have been loft at this office by John B. Sees, of West Hemlock township, who served in Company D, 7th., Pennsylvania cav alry during the great conflict. One of is general orders No. 15, issued at military division of the Mississippi, Macon, Oa, April 23, 1866, which contains the farewill ad dress of Brigadior General Loug; the other is a copy of the "Solma Union" a small newspaper printed by the sol diers at Solma, Ala, and which hoars the dato of April 8, 18tt5. Mr Sees thinks it would be difficult to find an other copy either of the farewell ad dress or the little newspaper anywhere in tliis section of the country. General Long, who was seriously wounded in the engagement before Solma, was obliged to retire from ser vice. The farewell addross is of in terest as showing to what extent offic ers appreciate the bravery of the en listed men. After commending them for their excellent fighting before Solma General Long concludes : 4 ' Hav ing naturally no love for war and if it should bo my fortune, as I hope it may be, never again to hoar the fire of a gnu in battlo, I shall consider that it is honor enough to last mo the re mainder of my lifo to have had the honor to command you on that oc casion". The "Belma Union" is printed 011 oue sido of a small sheet eight by twelve iuches. Its articles are well written and possess the true journal istic ring, while typographically the little newspaper is a croditablo piece of work. Captain W. W. Van Antwerp and Tlieo. T. Scribuer were the edit ors. Following is 0110 of the news items: The Selma Arsenal was consumed by lire by order of the goneral cammand ing On Thursday evening. It was a grand conflagration and the bursting of the shells and the lurid flames to gether with tho smoke that rose in varied colors presented a spectacle seldom to bo witnessed. We felt much more comfortable than when upon tho field of battle those destructive pro jectiles woro hurled at our heads. This arsenal was one of the main depend encies of the confederacy for muni tions of war,and many a shell or cart ridge manufactured there has caused tho death of a Unioff soldier". A congratulatory order addressed to tho officers and men printed in the Soldiers' newspaper shows that Selma, the most important city of tho South west, was taken after a march of near ly three hundred miles,over had roads, through a sterile and mountainous country, passing wide and rapid riv ers. Tho march occupied only 12 days. At tho fall of Selma there fell into the hands of tho Union army along with two thousand prisoners,the naval foundry and machine shops, and the extensive arsenal,filled with a variety of military munitions. Missing Boy Causes Alarm. Tho residents of the socoml ward wore much stirred up Monday morn ing over the disappearance of a teu yoar-old boy, the sou of Mr. and Mrs. John Buckley, who resido on Coopor street. Tho little fellow, whose name is William, disapi>oarod on Sunday af ternoon and by Monday morning tho parents were in a dreadful state of suspense. One story was to tho offect that the boy was soon bathing in tho rivor at a late hour, while another told of his crossing the rivor bridgo during the evening. Whether tne boy had drown ed, had left town or was detained from homo in some other way, thero was no way of telling and yosterday tho fath er laid tho matter before tho chief of police. Officer Mincemoyer telephoned to i Catawissa ami Sunbury but tho im mediate response was not encouraging. Later, however, Mr. Buckley manag ed to roach some relativos in Sunbyry by 'phono and was ovorjoyod to learn that his boy was with them, safo and sound. Tho story that he had been seen 011 tho rivor bridgo Sunday oven ing proved true and the little follow* had walked all tho way to Sunbury. Mr. Buckley wont to Sunbury ou the 12:10 train Monday and brought the boy along home. Two /lore Enlistments. 1 Thoodore Pootii ami William C. Heisler of this city woro accepted at the local recuit.ing offico last night. They wore enlisted for coast artillery 1 and this morning will bo sent to Fprt Slocum, N. V. Thero are still plenty of applicants but enlistments tako place slowly. In all only four have boon accepted into the servico since tho rocuiting office was opened in Danville. Corporal Cohen yesterday stated that, allowing for 70 per cent, rejections, five enlist ments a month is considered about the limit for a town of our population. William F. Loafey and Michael J. Loafoy,of this cit.}*, also wanted to 011- list, but they fell a trifle short in weight. Their case was held under ad visement for several days. Kach of tho rocruits, as soon as en listed, are vaccinated so as to bo im mune from small pox. Messrs Poeth and yosterday afternoon were inoculated by Dr. Stock and among their first experiences after entering military life will be tho nursing of a sore arm,although tho government has learned how to modify the treatment so as secure the desired result with a minimum of discomfort. WHEAT RIPENING. A farmer in this city Saturday stat ed that notwithstanding the late spring wheat would be ready to harvest by July 4th, if not before that date. Everywhere the wheat fields are as suming a golden hue and at somo places they already present the ap poarauce of boing nearly ripo. The crop on an average will bo a good one. The straw is heavy and tho heads ap pear finely dovoloped and well filled. Umpired Cricket Game. ». W. C. McCormack ou Saturday umpired a cricket game between two picked teams at Bloomsburg. WORK BEGUN ON "A" STREET. "A" street of the borough, which, owing to lack of argeonient, over since the completion of the trolley, has lain in an unfinished state, is about to lie fixed up precisely as called for by the plans and specifications. The Danville and Bloomsburg stroet railway com pany has now come to a perfect agree - ment with all the property owners along the thorughfaro ; work on the im provements has practically begun and it will be the matter of only a few weeks when the street will prosent al together a different appearance. The roadbed will have to raised about six inches along thegroater part of the street but the principal feature of the improvements will bo the con struction of double retaining walls on oach side of the street. Gnu of those retaining walls on eacli side will bo constructed on the curb line and the other on tl.e building lino. Each is to bo constructed of good-sized building stoue, joints dose, and to be laid in good cement mortar composed of two parts sand and one part, comout. The retaining wall on curb line is to begin 80 incites below the surfaco of the present road way : it is to bo 24 inches thick, while the height of wall from top of foundation shall conform to grade line fixed and designated up on plan. •The wall is to have a batter of two inches per foot. Tho retaining wall on the building line is to bo sunk to a depth of thirty inches below the curb lino grade; it is to be twenty-four iuches thick con forming in height with lot abutting on it. It is to have a batter of 0110 inch per foot. The road bed, which is somo six iuches too low, will have to bo practic ally reconstructed. The material used will probably bo crushed cinder. "A" street, which formerly possess ed a grade that was prohibitive in its ( nature, since it has been cut down by the trolley company, has become one of the most frequently travollod streets . in that part of town. When tho re- ! taiuing walls aud the new road bod : are completed according to plans and I specifications tho borough will bo im - ' meusely the gainer by reason of the ! trolley company selecting "A" street 1 in making up its route through the 1 city. The improvements 011 "A" street will be carried forward by tho trolley j company itself miner tho supervision 1 of General Manager W. R. Miller. The work of delivering material 011 the street began yesterday morning. To morrow morning work 011 the walls will begin. Birthday Surprise Party.

FOURTH ATTEMPT WAS BDCCESSFOL Mrs. Daniel Cooper, a resident of Northumberland, after throe unsuc cessful attempts, instantly killed her self Saturday morning hv shooting herself with a revolyer. Mrs. Cooper lived with her husband at the Kessler house in Northumber land! Mr. Cooper is employed in the Pennsylvania freight station at Sha mokiu and was there when his wife fired tho fatal sliot. On Saturday morning Mrs. Cooper camo down stairs from her room at tho hotel, between seven and eight o'clock and mooting Maggio Crothors asked her to walk along up tho Pennsylvania railroad track saying she wanted to try and find some koys which she had lost. During tho walk Mrs. Coopor appeared to bo jolly and in a good humor. Returning to the hotol about uino o'clock, she wont to her room ac companied by Miss Crothors. After talking for a few minutes she went to a boarder's room and secured a loaded revolver from a dress suit case. Con cealing the rovolver she returned to her room and after locking the door turned and said to Miss Crothors, "I'm going to shoot myself." Miss Croth ers thought sho was only fooling but pointing tho rovolver at horself Mrs. Coopor pulled tho trigger. Tho first shot missed her body and she fired a second time. When the second shot missed she deliberately placed tho muzzle of the revolver against her left breast and oxclaiming, "Dan, Dan, Dan," fired the third shot. Miss Crothors, who was almost frantic, rushed toward Mrs. Cooper saying, "For God's sake Corn,don't do that!" and Mrs. Copoer replied, "Go away, go away," and fell forward to tho floor. Dr. C. E. Ratter was summoned but Mrs. Cooper was dead when he arriv ed, the bullotiiaviug penetrated her heart. Mrs. Cooper had made three other attempts to tako her own life. About ten days ago she waded into tho river at Island park but found the water too cold and returned to shore. On Wed nesday of last week she tried to throw herself from the river bridge but was saved by her husband who had follow ed her. Ou Friday she attempted to hurl herself beneath a freight train in Snnbury but was prevented by some persons standing nearby. Before her marriage MM. Cooper was Miss Cora Adams and her parents reside near Lewisburg. Children's Day Exercises. Children's Day was observed at Pine Street. Lutheran church Sunday night.

Just previous to Fourth of July last year State Health Commissioner Sam uel G. Dixon through the public pross of Pennsylvania called tho attention of tho people to tho great danger of lock jaw (tetanus) from wounds of toy pistols and other explosives, and ho urged the necessity of immediate med ical attondanco in such cases. That the warning was widely heeded was shown by the great reduction in the number of tetanus cases following Fourth of July accidents. Indeed thero wore reported only a few scattered cases throughout tho wholo State. Health Commissioner Dixon again sends out a warning message in an ticipation of tho coining Fourth. "Tho germ which produces tetanus grows best, buried in tho flesh away froni tho air," says Dr. Dixon, "aud this germ which is found in earth, in tho dust and in horse stables, and sometimes suspended iu the air in windy localities, -lodges easily in tho small, clean cut wound made for in stance by tho blank cartridge. "What I wish to impress upon every one, especially mothers, is the very great seriousness of these wounds they are uot promptly and properly treated by those with full knowledge of the subject. Early treatment by a physician will often prevent the de velopment of tetanus. Therefore, k a doctor should be called at once to treat a penetrating wound even if slight, such as powder or other explosives are apt to mako. In caso of prolonged de lay in ort.aining the sorvices of a phy sician a competent druggist or trained nurse might thoroughly wash tho wound aud apply hot antiseptics." One way to win friends is to make allowances for everybody else's peculi arities, but not expect auybody to make allowance for yours. COUNTY BRIDGES TOO FRAIL County Commissioners Leighow, Cook and Sechler, accompanied by Charles L. Polio, of the Columbia couuty board, on Saturday, wont up to Big Roaring creek to examiuo the joint county bridge thoro, which has boon reportod as in need of repairs in order to maßo it safe and equal to the demands of prosent day traffic. Tho bridgo at Roaring creek is a covered wooden structuro and is in oxcelleut condition, but like a good many other bridges in tho county it was built before the day of traction engines, when a six-horse load was the maximum load that it would bo ex pected to carry. In tho present day, with a dozen traction engines in Mon tour county alono, and corresponding numbers in surrounding territory, thoro is not a bridge or culvert of the older class but has to bo strengthened to carry those ponderous machines, which may weigh twelve tous or more. Tho couuty commissioners, after capefully looking ovor tho Roaring creek bridge, decided that tho struct ure could be rendered safe and dur able and bo made to carry fifty tons, if necessary,by placing three more sleep ers under tho floor and in addition in serting four 3-inch iron rods 011 each side connecting tho bottom stringer with tho top of tho arch. This plan will bo adopted ami the work of strengthening the bridgo will be enter ed u]H)u without delay. Democratic Platform Adopted Wednesday (Concluded from page 1) matter." ~ "All grants or franchises to corpora tions should ho limited as to time, purpose and power, and should be re claimed by the Commonwealth when public interest requires." "That the present libel law, fam iliarly known as the "Press Muzzier Act," which has been denounced by tho newspapers of the State without distinction of party should bo sub stituted by a more liberal measure." "We favor the enactment of a rea sonable employers' liability act. We appreciate the action of our represent | ativos in the legislature in opposing I (he passage of the State police act and demand its repeal." A Special Dispensation. Catliolies throughout the world art* allowed to oat meat next Friday, June 29th. It will be tho foast of Saints Poter and Paul, one'of the principal oues of the church, and a day of great relig ious rejoicing, particularly in Europe an countries. It will be especially gala in Rome. Processions and religious celebrations of a largo scalo will bo the order of the day. Po])o Pius has granted a special dis pensation in honor of the feast. Ab- moat on Fridays is en tirely a matter of discipline among Catholics and the pope as supreme liead of tho church has power to grant such dispensations. It has always boon the rule to sus pend tlio abstinence when Christmas day falls on Friday. Lawn Party at Yorks' Farm. A most- enjoyable occasion was the lawn party given Saturday by several young ladies at. Yolks' farm on the Bloom road. Tho placo was prettily decorated for tho occasion with -flags and Japaneso lanterns. Tea was served on the lawn and in the evening a marshmellow roast. In the party were : Miss Agues Reif suyder,of New York City; Miss Laura Essick, of Highland Lake; Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stoos, of Bloomshurg; Al bert Savage,of Sunburv; Paul Eyorly, Neal Chrisman, Ben Car]>euter and Will Aim Fagley, of Bloomsburg : and from Danville, Mr. and Mrs. R. Y. Gearluirt, tho Misses Ruth and Ava | Gearhart, Misses Emma Goarhart, Mary Hollowav. and Ida Gallagher; Edward Shultz, Goorgo Youngmon, Tlieo. R. Angle and Dr. Neviuger. CANDIDATES SCARCE. Thus far but few Republican citizens of Schuylkill county have announced themselves as candidates for office this year. The Tamaqua Courier inclines to tho opinion that tho corrupt prac tices act placed on tho statute book at the extra sossion of tho legislature has acted as a detriment. Candidates aro not exactly familiar with the pro visions and do not know just- how far togo in tho matter of expenditures and still bo within the meaning of the act. Tho same law is creating some apprehension in Luzerne county, wo are told, and some of the rival* aspir ants are charged with hiring detoctives to watch each other. There is a gen eral conviction,however, that the law was needed and will do good. Jumping on Trolley Cars. Chief-of-Polico Mincomoyor is after the boys who make it a practice of jumping onto tfco trolley cars as they pass through town. The practico has become a great nuisauco and sooner or lator there will be a serious accident. Somo of the boys who offend in this way aro quite small. If the policemen catch any of the boys they declare they [ will make an example of them and im prison them in tho lock-up. Bridge Will be Repaired. Two of tho Columbia county com missioners and the county solicitor woro in Harrisburg yesterday about jibe defects in the paving on the Cata wissa bridge. Tho county officials were given to understand that tho bridge has not been taken off the contractor's hands ami that the ilofocts will bo re medied at the contractors' expense. Death of Rev. John W. Rue. Rev. Dr. John W. Ruo, pastor of tho Methodist Episcopal church,of Waynes boro, who went from Snnbury to that appointment, died at J) o'clock Satur day night after an illness of seven weeks. Ho was assigned to Waynes boro by the conference Jn the spring and was taken ill soon after moving there. IMPROVEMENTS ON S. H. k W. DIVISION While tho laying of a double track along tho S. H. & W.. railroad said to have been in view years ago, has not as yet been accomplished, it is neverthe less true that very extended improve ments are on foot or are contemplated along that division. The S. H. & W. division iias exten sive sidings,which are being extended from time to time with the result that it will not be very long until there will bo practically a double track much of tho way between South Dan ville and Sunbury. Work at present is in progress extending the already long siding that reaches from South Danvillo westward. The ground ex cavated is hauled up to I»lue hill and dumped over tho bank thoro for the purpose of widening and strengthen ing tho road bed preparatory to im provements at that point. Different farmers along the division have been approached by representa tives of the company to soe 011 what terms laud could bo bought "for pur pose of laying additional track, straightening out curves, etc. Exten sive improvements of this sort, it ap pears, tho company has in view above Boyd's station. A proposition has been mado to Amos Vastine looking to the purchaso of some five acres of land in cluding his tenent house near the rail road. If enabled to carry out their plans at this point not only will the curve in the track bo abolished, but the wagon road between the railroad and the riv er, will be removed above tho 1 ail road. WIIOII it is considered that the land wanted for such improvements constitutes the most valuable part of tho farms intersected it will readily bo seen that tho cost of the ground will be a heavy item. Some of the farmers fix tho damages as high as two thou sand dollars. Perfect Cash Register. J. B. 01oaver has just installed a National cash resistor of the latest ami most improved type in his gener al store, Mill street. Knell clerk has an individual drawer with a total add er. Every possible safeguard is pro vided and the register is so compre hensive that it is almost impossible to take in all its parts in a short study. It is of oxidized metal 011 an antique oak case. In addition to its perfection it is a very handsome piece of store furniture. CASTOR IA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought Signature of NEGLEOTINi J THE RULES.

CHIOBBBTF.R OHKUIDAL CO. tit* ■a4laon Nqaare, I>HII A., FA. i Mwttoi Uto >*»» PAINTING THE COMPANY HOUSES The Reading Irou company Ims en tered upon a general overhauling and painting of its tenement houses in the (borough. These dwellings number some one hundred and fifty and occupy Montour row. Bank and Sycamore street, largo portions of Northumber land and Mill streets, Chambers and First, Second and Third streets, of Welsh Hill and West I'outro street. The amount of work involved is con siderable while the improvement, af fecting such a largo portion of the borough, is one whose importance is not to bo lightly estimated. There probably never was a time when the Reading iron company did not find regular work on the company houses for a few oarpeuters, making such repairs as were necessary to pre serve the buildings and make them comfortable for the occupants. The re pairs in the present instance are more general and systematic, the carpenters making a clean sweep as »hey proceod. Each building receivos its quota of re pairs. The weather boards whoro at all decayed are being torn oil' and re placed with new ; the porticos,or what passes as snch at many places receive now floor and side benches, while un der the building itself where the un der pining has given away a new foundation of'brick is built up. Kepairs as above described have been made on Centre street taking in botli sides and along at least one half of Montour row. The buildings, which had weathered the storm of souie fifty years lia'l begun to assume an air of general dilapidation and are much im proved by the general repairs. Here and there it lijis been necessary to prac ticaly ro-woather board tho buildings on one side or another. The company houses, as they are gonerally known, have always been unpainted, so that what is really the most marked feature of the present improvement is the coat of blood red paint that is being applied. Four houses at the southern end of Montour row are already finished. No attempt at effect or decoration is made what ever au«l the paint,merely intended to ' preserve the wood, is applied by Eu gene Kinu, who recently completed a jontract for painting the smoke stacks at flie Heading iron company's works. Mr. Kinn"Monday stated that he has a contract for painting all the com pany houses, ami although assisted by four men, ho floes not expect to com plete the work before winter. Mr. Kinu has a contract for the glazing also, which is a branch of the im provements which will occupy a great deal of time. Entertained at Kipps Run. Miss Blanch Sechlor entertained a number of friends at her home at i Kipps Jtun Saturday evening. Those j present were Miss Sara Knorr. of Al i lontowu ; Misses Bertha Kase, Jessie Kimerer, Elizabeth Heed, Kathcrino Vastine, Verna Hf*ul,Lucrotia Bhodos, May Books and Edith Kramer ; Messrs John Kase, Robert.

Saurfaco, the Stato Imgologist. ridicules the stories print ed to the effect that the locusts are dangerous and sting jiooplo. "The locusts," said he, "are harmless ex cepting that they make a very slight sting which is not at./all dangerous. Tho stories receutly printed that swarms of locusts have chased pooplo and stung them so badly that they had to have medical attendance are silly, for a locrst never does any thing of the kind." The Editor Appreciated. At a recent editorial convention a minister offered the following toast: "To save nn editor from starvation, take his paper and pay for it prompt ly. To save him from bankruptcy,ad vertise in his paper liberally. To save him from despair,scud liiui every item of'nows of which you cau get hold. To save him from profanity, write plainly on one side of the sheet ami send in your contribution as early as possible. To savo him from mistakes, bury him. Dead people are the only oues who never make mistakes." POOR SHAD SEASON. Tho shad season in Pennsylvania came to a conclusion on Wednesday. It is the universal testimony of tho newspapers published along tho Sus quohauna that the season was a fail ure, tho catch hoiug light and tho profits invisible. Some of tho editors are pessimistic enough to hint, that this may be the last shad soaous the State will ever see. But there may bo unexpected brightening up and tho an nihilation of that impending dam at McOall Ferry. Fierce Fight With Black Snake.
