VOLUME 77. PENNSY CUTS RAH ONE HALF CENT On and after September 1, next the Pennsylvania railroad will sell a mil age book over its own lines at a flat price of S2O, good for one person to ride a thousand miles or a thousand persons to ride one mile. The inter changeable mileage book, good over other lines as well as the Pennsyl vania, will remain at the same price as at present —foO with a 110 rebate w r hen used—and will not be transfer able. At the same time this news was giv en out it was announced that as soon as proper notification details can be completed, probably in November, tho maximuii rate of fare will bo reduced from three cents a mile to two and one-half cents a mile on all Pennsyl vania lines east of Pittsburg and Erie. This surprising news, which is a question of millions of dollars with the Pennsylvania railroad, was made public yesterday afternoon following a meeting of the directors of the com pany. By its action tho Pennsylvania railroad forgoes the privileges of its charter, which allows it to charge t hree and even throe and a half cents a mile for passenger travel within the State GENERAL REDUCTION NOV. 1. Although the $lO mileage book will go into effect on September I the gen eral reduction cannot be made for some time, owing to tho great amount of work incident to such an important change. It is expected, however, that this will not he delayed later than November 1. lu the issuing of a S2O mileage book the present form, which is interchange able with six other lines of the Trunk Lines Bureau, and for which a charge of S3O is made, the additional $lO to be returned in exchange for tho cover, will remain in force. The Pennsyl vania railroad cannot alter this. Its uew book, however, will be good only on the lines east of Pittsburg and Erie. It will be accopted for passage ou these lines from any one presenting it. Sixth Annual Picnic.

A McKeesport pastor,having declar ed that hundreds of the city's young gills are in grave danger because they are allowed to roam tho streets or to visit places of amusement until late hours of the night, the McKeesport News says the statement. 44 is one that observant citizens know to be true. The evil is not peculiar to this city," remarks the News, "but it is none the less an evil for that; and parents may save trouble and shame for themselves as well as for their daughters, by a wise exercise of authority. It is not the over indulgent parent who will retain the love and grateful admira tion of her children, but the firm mother who stands between them and evil and compels them to obey the law of the wise home. HAS MANY PARALLELS. The "Here and There" man of the Johnstown Tribune, author of one of the best features of that admirable daily, tells the following little story that has more than one parallel: "A farmer had two sons, one of them si very bright boy, the other rather dull He decided it was worth while to educate the bright boy, and sent him to a law school. The dull one was con sidered only (it for farming, and was allowed to remain nu the "place." Now the dull boy is one ot the most prominent citizens of his county, has been sent, to the legislature, and has lent his lawyer brother so much money that when 1 the old gentleman dies tlx' lawyer won't have a cent coming to him out of the estate." 22 Inch Salmon. Mrs. Gearhart Oberdorf, who with her husband was fishing last evening on the river below town caught a monster salmon. The salmon, which is 22 inches long, and which weighs 8% pounds, was caught on a trolling line aud was landed only after a hard fight. AN TEST Tlio fifteen hundred foot 01 paragon hose purchasod of the Eureka Hoso Company, \\ 11i<;!i was found to leak at some of I lie joints, aftor boing over hauled by an export-, wen? re-tested last night with the moat gratifying re sults, each of the couplings proving absolutely water tight. As stated yesterday morning A. L. Pinner, the expert sent here by Jaiuos Hoyd and Brothers, agents for the Eureka hose, discovered that the trou ble lay in the washers inserted in some of the couplings and proceeded at once to replace the defective ones with now. By last evening he had the work completed and was ready for tho final tost. By seven o'clock a good sized crowd had assembled at the water works to witness the trial. In tho number bo sidoß Jacob Diet/, and A. O. Anglo of the couucilmauic coinnrtt.ee on tire, there were present George Kochor, chief of the fire department, Borough Secretary Harry Patton as well as sev eral eouucilmen and leading firemen. When the hose was tested the first time the borough lire engine was em ployed ami the hose was tested under , a pressure of nearly two hundred pounds. Tho consensus of opinion among the fireman was that such a heavy pressure was not to be desired, as it subjected the hose to a strain more than double what it would he called upon to hear in actual service and it was a question whether or not, although it stood the test, it might not bo somewhat the wohse for tho enorm ous pressure. Last evening wise coun sel prevailed and it was decided to dispense with tho lire engine and to test tho hose direct from the plug. The now hoso was attached to the plug at the corner of Front and Fact ory streets and in two paralled lines carried down the river seven hundred and fifty feet. Councilman John L. Russell took charge of the ping and turned tho water on and oil' as desir ed. The pressure was run up to about a hundred pounds, which is consider ed v more than is usually brought to play during a lire. By the time every tliing was properly ad justed, along the entire line of hoso there was not the least sign of a leak at the couplings or e.lse where. A. L. Pinner, tho export sent here by James Boyd and Brothers, was pres ent during tho test. Incidentally ho gave our cotincilinen some valuable pointers concerning the quality and tho treatment of hose, which will no doubt prove of much value. Mr. Pin ner made it very plain that the mere fact that hose may bo seldom usod is no reason why it should last any long er. In fact ho averred t hat there sl ould bo a limit to the time when hose should be permitted to hang idle; that hose in this way is apt to be affected with what is called 14 dry rot " To preserve tho hoso he recommended that when intervals of nine mouths or more occur in which there are no liros tho hoso should be taken down,filled with wat er and replaced in tho tower. For Fast Running. Tho borough of Danville ye.-iterday proceeded against the l> L. \V. rail road company for running its trains through tho borough at a renter rate of spoed than eight, miles an hour, which is the limit sot by the borough o rdi nance. The I). L. W. engineers,tho oflic ers claim, make it a practice of ignor ing the speed limit and of running through town at any rati! that seems to suit their convenience. This charge is made against freight as woll as passenger trains. The otVending trains have been timed by the officers and t he present action is based upon the rate of speed established by the test,which is said to have boon nearer thirty miles than eight miles an hour. It was decided yesterday morning to bring action against the I). L & W. company for trespass. Summons were served on tlio oompany through Goorgo W. Eggort, station agent, as the local representative. The summons calls for appearance before Justice of the Peace Oglosby on Tuesday, August7t.li, at to a. m. Sustained a Broken l.imb. Mrs. John Forney, East Front street, had,tin 1 misfortune to break her leg Friday and as a consequence will be confined to her home for some During Last Friday forenoon Setli Freeze was engaged in hauling ties. Several ladies, among whom was Mrs. Forney, decided to ride along with Mr. Freeze on one of his trips. They mounted the wagon and had a pleas ant time until arriving at a spot near the gas house at the hospital for the insane, where the horse took fright. The. animal became unmanageable ami began to back the wagon down I over the bank. At this juncture the Indies became, greatly alarmed ami be | gan to jump out of the wagon.

PA., Fill DAY, AUGUST :J, M)OK. ID PREVENTS ; SHOCK NC ACCIDENT But for the prompt action of an en gineer in stoppingja freight train Mon day it would have fallen to our lot to chronicle one of tho most shock ing accidents that has occurred in this section in a long time. As the empire freight wost bound was proceeding from tho D. L. W. depot toward Mill street bystanders were amazed and horrified to see a man so badly intoxicated that he could hardly walk, just east of Ferry street stagger on tho track as the locomo tive was almost upon him. He succeeded ill getting across and the bystanders had hardly time to breathe a sigh of relief, when the drunken man, who proved to Walter ( 44 Rods") Rnpp, made a dash for the moving train, with the evident inten tion of jumping one of the cars. As might bo expected lie missed his hold and fell in between tho cars lodging against the bumpers. People averted their faces,as it seemed impossible that Rnpp could escape being ground to death under the wheels. He owos his deliverance, however, io tho quick action and heroism of two men. As tho drrnkou fellow stag gered across tho track in front of the engine the man at the throttle instan taneously graspod the situation. Divin ing what would occur next ho kept his eye on Rupp and when ho saw him make a dash for tho train aud fall in between the cars he was in a position to act promptly and he did what would have been impossible uudor any other circumstances and that was to stop the freight, which was rolling long at regulation speed, literally on the spot before the drunken man got under the wheels. All at the same momout,how ever. John Albeck almost jeopardiz ing his own life, was on Rupp's heels and laying hold of him dragged him out from between tho cars at almost the same moment that tho train stop- The sudden manner iu which the heavy freight was brought, to a stand still proved quite an object lesson to many persons. Tho humane instincts oft he. engineer and tho extremos to which he went to avoid accident made him quite a hero in the eyrs of the people. The man, too, who dragged Rupp out from between the cars came iu for his share of applauso. Tho en gineer's name was Robert. Fellinger. Death of Mrs. Zeisler. Mrs. Irino Zeisler,tho wife of Rabbi Joseph Zeisler, departed this life at 7:54 o'clock Monday evening. The deceased was iu her forty-seven th year and was an invalid for twenty years. She was afflicted with heart trouble aud during the last five yoars of her life her sufferings were at times most intense. She was a woman of re fined character, and sweet disposition, who bore her suffering with remark able fortitude. Kind and considerate, she scorned to care less for herself than for the comfort, and the welfare of loved ones around her. If was with the hope that tho change would prove beneficial to his wife that Rabbi Zeisler left the crowded metro polis of Now York and cast his lot iu Danville. It was not decreed, how ever, that Mrs. Zeisler should recover and when it hocamo apparent that the hope of improvement hero would not be realized tho family determined on another change. Rabbi Zoisler tender ed his resignation as rabbi of the B'nai Zion congregation and was cast ing about for another charge when the death of his wife occurred. Tlio death of Mrs. Zeisler took place on the twenty-seventh anniversary of her marriage. She was born and wed ded in Huda Pesth, Hungary. For twenty-six yoarw, along with her hus band, she lived in America. As her condition became more grave and tlio end approached slio conceived a groat dread of being left behind when the family moves away. The thought of such a separation was painful to the entire household and it was decided that the next change made should lie the last one, that the location should be wisely selected and that tliero or in nearby localities the entire household should locato; to this favored spot, along with the family, it was decided the body of the deceased wife should be moved. Consoled with this assur ance Mrs. Zeisler passed away. There are several localities under consideration and in a few days the family will decide where its future home is to be. The moving will take place in two week's time. The deceased beside her husband is survived by two sons and two daugh ters: Eugene Ziosler, Ph. 1)., and Dr. Cornelius Zeisler,and the Misses Flor ence and Pauline Zeisler. The two sons, who reside in New York, arriv odin Danville Tuesday in response in the news of their mother's death. CONFEREES APPOINTED Hon. C. C.

Stephens, orchard inspector representing the State department of zoology, who began work in this coun ty the beginning of last week, has made discoveries relative to the prevalence of the San Jose scale, which are little short of startling. Mr. Stephens arrival and the object of his visit was set forth in those col umns in tho issue of July 24th. The article, he says, has proved quite a help to him, turning the atteution of the owners of orchards to the San Jose scale mid serving as an iutroduc tiou to the inspector. Wherever he has appeared as a rule he has found the fruit growers impressed with tho im portance of fighting the scalo and ready to co-operate with tho State iu the crusade being made. First of all, our readers will bo in terested to know that the inspector has fouud tho San Joso scale in the borough of Danville, infesting not only fruit treos, but in a few instances, shade trees as well. Tho inspection in tho borough WHS not as sweeping aud thorough as in tho townships of the couuty where tho inspector passes di rectly from farm to farm. There were many places in Danville that ho did not visit. At the same time there is no intention to overlook tho scale though found in town and if owners of trees discover the pest and will drop Mr. Stephens a card the inspect or will bo glad to call upon them aud remlor all assistance possible. Bosidos work done in the borough of Danville tho orchard inspector since arriving hero has confined his labors to Mahoning and Cooper townships, principally in the vicinity of Bloom road. Just oast of Danville he has found the scale to be alarmingly prev alent. At the White church and westward toward the borough it Is is estimated that the scale has been at work for five years. A very largo per centage of the oldor trees are dead or dying and tho pest even infosts the roso bushes. Mr. Diohl and his neigh bors will enter upon a general crusade next fall. So firm a foothold has the | scale gained that unless some well J sustained effort is made to extermin ate it iu five years, Mr. Stephens says, one-half of the orchards of that section will bo dead. It is a singular fact that tho preval ence of the scalo is pretty genoral along the Bloom road, while farther back along the hills it is rare or is not found at all. This is accounted for by the fact, that the San Jose scale was introduced with young trees shipped from nurseries that wore infested. Ob viously the more remote farms were uot visited by the fruit tree agents. In fighting the scale it. is not neces sary for fruit growers to invest in any of tho more expensive and widely ad vertised compounds. They have a ready and inexpensive remedy at hand in tho familiar lime and sulphur wash, which (ran be made at. a cost of two cents per gallon. Nothing bott.or has been discovered and as a proof of its efficianey Mr. Stephens relates that in E. G. Wertman's orchard, whore a demonstration was mado by Mr. Brinkerhoff last fall, tho pest is practic ally exterminated. Nowhero on any of Mr. Wertman's troes where the lime and sulphur wash was applied can Mr. Stephens find any of the scale remain ing, while on a single tree near tho house accidentally overlooked by the demonstrator the scale still exists. The inspector in turn will visit each of the townships of tho county. For each promises inspected he fills out a report to H. A. Surface, State Zoolog ist, giving the name and address of the owner or tenant, tho numbor and kind of trees, whether young or bear, ing, whether or not insects Iravo boon found, when,how often and with what material the orchard lias boon treated for San Jose scalo. TOWNSHIPS SHOULD HELP. Commenting upon tho recent an nouncement of tho State highway com missioner that so many miles of road are now under contract or completed in various parts of tho Stato that the entire amount appropriated to tho countios affected until Juno, 15)07, has been consumed, tho Washington Ob server remarks that "it is evident that the sentiment for pennant nt road im provement lias increased wonderfully during the past few years. And it will continue to grow. Tho sentiment will undoubtedly result iu a far moro liber al Stato appropriation. And tho pro gressive counties and townships of tho commonwoalth aro going ahead for themsolves, whore they aro ablo, and supplementing tho work of tho State. This is the only way whereby the peo ple will bo able to get many miles of good roads in this generation." Graveyard a Nest of Snakes. •lames Kase, who is occupied iu cut ting the weeds and tall grass in the old cemetery opposite the Grove Pres byterian church finds the old grave yard a nest of snakos. Yesterday iu the course of his work he killed a number of reptiles. Yester day afternoon, ho dispatched a monster 5 foot copper head with his scytlio. Library Trustee. F. G. Schooli has been elected a trustee of the Thomas Beaver free library from the Pino Street Lutheran church, to fill the vacancy caused by • sue death of Captain Joseph H. John ' ton. PLACING STONES ON TROLLEY RAILS The Danville & Bloomsburg trolley company today will start out after a lot of youngsters who are in the habit of placing stonos and other small ob stacles on the trolley track. In many cases, it is true, there may he nothiug malicious in tho act and those guilty may bo influenced merely by curiosity to see how the car will get over the obstaclo. But at the same time the fact must not be lost sight of that such thoughtlossuess may derail a car, which at the very least means a delay aud is apt to cause fright among the passengers, even if it does not result iu a damaged car and iujury to the oc cupants. Tho nuisance has been going on for some time and Genoral Manager Mill er is determined that it has to stop forthwith. Last night he stated that the first persou found placing anything upon tho track will bo soverely dealt with. Although some of these offend ers are vory small children it does not alter tho case, as tho parents, who are supposed to control their childreu, will be held strictly responsible for their acts. Mr. Miller states that no part of the line is exempt from tho nuisauce but that tho placing of stones ou the rails most frequently occurs iu East Danville. Awakened by Burglars. At an early hour Mouday morning burglars,derating with all the clever ness of veterau cracksmen, entered the i homo of George Doibert, Toby Run. The thieves were com polled to hurried ly escape without any plunder, when they wero discovered by Mrn. Deibert. Tho burglars gained an entrauce to the Doibert homo through a window, by first romoving one of the panes of glass and thou raising the sash. Mrs. Doibert is ill with rheum atism and both she and her husbaud sleep oil tho first floor. The first in timation that tho Diebert.s had that their homo was being invaded was wlieu Mrs. Diebert was awakened by the flashing of a dark lantern in her face. She awoke with a start and could discern, by the dim light of an oil lamp that was burning iu tho room, the shadowy forms of two men. She followed the first impulse that came to her and screamed loudly for help. Her cries wore all that was lioeded to put the burglars to rout. They fled precipitately. As they rau from tho room, either accidentally or with design, they knocked the lamp from the table, leaving the room in darkness, and a confusion that gave them a few minutes freedom from pur suit, which they took advantage of to make good their escape. Report of Local Registrar. The roport of the local registrar to the State board of health for July constitutes a remarkably tiood show iug. There has not been a single case of typhoid fever. There was one case of diphtheria and one of measles. During tho mouth twenty-three deaths were reported. Of this number oleven deaths occurred at the hospital for tho insane, which properly should not be taken account of iu conuectiou with this district. Of the twelve deaths occurriug outside the hospital two wore caused by consumption, ouo by shock, one by appendicitis, one by drowning. The remaining deaths maiu ly wore due to complications incident al to old age. No deaths were caused by the so-called strictly contagious diseases. The presont, it is true, is a season of the yoar when the most healthful con ditions prevail and doctors can well afford to take a vacation. At the same time it would probably be difficult to recall a summer when a few cases of droaded typhoid were not. lurking about and tho clean bill of health in respect to this disease given by the local registrar is therefore all the more gratifying. Tho record is not as yet complete as it relates to the number of births tor the past mouth. WELL PATRONIZED. The repair shop and garage belong ing to Will G. Brown is well patron iz ed in thoso days of automobiling. Tbore is scarcely a day or a night but from three to four big machines are housod with Mr. Brown, whilo occas ionally tho ontire space is occupied, which means that six machines are cared for. Will is bocomiiig a leading export not. only in driving autos, but iu caring for them and keeping them in good running ordor. It has come to be recognized that ho fills an import ant niche. There aro seven automobiles in Danville,owned by W. W. Welliver, T. J. Price,W. G. Pursel.W. J. Baldy, Fred Owen, F. H. Van nan and W. L. Gougor. Lightning Victim Recovering. Jacob Frantz, residing between Muucy and Hughesville, tho young man injured by lightniug several weeks ago, at which time his brother was killed, is recovering. He is now able to walk about. It was first thought ho would be a helpless paraly tic, but fortunately for the young man this is not true. Forest Fire Damages The commissioners of Columbia county have decided to pay out SSOO for forest, fire damages, and are ready to meet, such bills. The fire wardens of two of the townships have been paid, and the bills now on file iu the commissioners' office will be promptly paid. SENTENCED TO PROTECTORY An adjourned session of court was held Tuesday foreuoon with Presi dent Judge O. C. Evans and Associates Frank Q. Blee and Charles A. Wagnei ou the bench. The principal business before court was the disposal of the case of Daniel Candy, the boy who at the May term of court was placed in the haiuis of the chief of police as probation officer— who last week pleaded guilty of steal ing a sum of money and was placed in the custody of the sheriff to await ac tion of the court. The boy was in court seated beside the sheriff inside the rail. Immediate ly behind him, in the seats devoted to spectators sat the boy's father and mother. His honor Judge Evans in taking up the matter stated that he had received a letter from the young man from whom the boy had stolen the money pleading for clemency,stat ing that he did not wish to recover the money and that he would rather that the boy would not be sent away. The court, however made the follow ing order: "Commonwealth vs. Daniel Candy. In the court of quarter sessions of Mon tour county. No. 8 of May sesious, 1906. Charge eutering in the day time. May 28, 1906, a true bill. May 28, 1906, verdict, guilty. "And now July 31, 1906, the court seuteuces,the defendant, Daniel Candy, to be committed to the care and guard ianship of the managers of the Phila delphia Protectory for boys at Pawl ing, Pennsylvania, there to be kept, fed and clothed and treated as the law directs and to stand committed until the sentence be complied with; aud further the order made May, 190ft,plac ing the defeudaut. in the charge of probation officer is amended and re voked. fhe sheriff to conduct you thence within five days from date, By the court, CHARLES C. EVANS. P. J." Judge Evans spoke kindly to young Candy, explaining to him that he had hoped when he placed him iu the hands of the probation otticor that he would henceforth be a better boy. He now sincerely hoped that lie would re form aud that when lie leaves the in stitution at Pawling he will he alto gether a different boy. William Kase West preseutod the |)etition of J. P. Buck for transfer of license at the City hotel. The petition set forth that in February, 190 ft, a li cense to retail wiues, spiritous malt aud brewed liquors at No. 238 Mill street was granted to John C. Moyor, who owing to ill health agreed to sell out to the petitioner provided the court would transfer the license. W. L. Gouger being called to the stand testified as to the applicant's good character aud geueral fitness to con duct a hotel. A list of nineteen sign ers in support of the petition was pre sented to the court. The boud was ap proved and the license was transferred as prayed for. Halph Kisuer presented a petition of the official hoard of the Thomas Beaver Free Library setting forth that owing to the death of Joseph H. John sou of the Pine Street Lutherau church said church was without representa tion iu the board of trustees of said library; the petitioners prayed the court to appoint F. G. Schocli of Pine Street Lutheran to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Joseph H. John sou. State is Quick Pay. Adjutant Geueral Stewart Monday issued warrants aggregating $147,699. - 22 for the pay of the troops of the na tional guard of Pennsylvania for camp duty at Gettysburg last week. The warrants were transmitted Mon day night to the thiee brigado head quarters, from which they will be dis tributed to the colonels of regiments, by whom they will be forwarded to the various company organizations.
