IN EAST El! The East End mission, wliioh, under the zealous leadership of Hon. M. Hincklov, lias grown and prospered daring several years past, is abont to enter upon a new era, marked by still greater growth and enlarged influence. Among the new order of things will bring about another epoch in the mission's history is a new modern •church structure designed with spec il reference to the growing needs of the mission, and the foundation of which will be laid not later than next spring. Ever since the East End mission has been in existence the meetings have been held in tho third floor of the Am merman building. East Market street. The quarters there are somewhat cramped but the two narrow flights of stairs that have to lie climbed by those attending constitute the worst objec tion. For some timo past those interest ed in the work of the East End mis sion have been casting about for a Dew site of ground oonvenienly located,up on which to build a chapel. Sucli*<a sire is now procured. It was purchas ed last week of W. A. Sheppersou and adjoins the Amtnerinan building on the west. It was formerly occupied by Mr. Sheppersou s coal yard and has a frontage of forty-seven feet on East Market street and is one hundred and fifty feet deep. The deed has been de livered Hou. H. M. Hinckley stated yester day that a capacious chapel would be •rected on the site, that would have au auditorium of large size on tho first floor. The exact dimensions have not been decided upon ; nor of what ma terial it will be constructed. Work may begin in a very short time. By the first of April at the furthest ground will be broken.

He walked right out, and turned arouud, aud walked right iu again— this reversal of the prevalent expres sion would describe the stunt of the groundhog on Saturday- His Hogship did his little act.aud according to the old tradition, the winter is not yet at an end and we are to have cold and stormy weather for the next six weeks. The suu was shining brightly the greater part of the day, and not with standing that his eyes may have been somewhat bliukev on emerging from his long sleep iuto the bright glare of day light, our friend had no difficulty in discerning his shadow distinctly outlined on the snow. After taking a sniff around, aud without waiting tc say goodbye—not eveu inquiring about politics or the legislature—he turned his back on the glittering world and withdrew again iuto his retreat, slam ming the door shut to keep out report ers and others of the cnrlous. He will resume his sleep aud will nut again come out until the six weeks are elaps ed and winter is over. SACRIFICE TO SAVE CHILD Iu order to nave the life of liis three year old daughter, Charles Kremer, o! Lewisburg, had thirty square inches of his skin grafted on her at the Wil liamsport hospital Tuesday. Early last December his daughter Geraldiue,wai badly burned about the bod? and arms, and has been in the hospital siucc December 23. Over three weeks ago at much skin was taken from Mrs. Krein er for a like purpose. The physiciau at the hospital thought that in ordei to save the little girl's life more skin would be needed,so Mr. Krenier with out any hestitaion, offered himself tc save his daughter from death. Gerald ine is now getting aloug nicely and il is thought that she will recover. For School Director. Frank Jameson, who was nominatec to be school director by the Democrati of the first ward, Danville,has declin ed to be a candidate. To fill this highly important pl:<c< on tfie ticket William A.

THE DANVILLE STOVE WORKS At the annual meeting of the Dan ville Stove auil Manufacturing com pany, held last week, the following officers were ro-electecl: President, W. B. Chaniherliu; secretary, Alexander Foster; treasurer, W. L. McClure; W. A. Secliler WHS re-olected general man ager of the worgs. The plant of the Danville Stove & Manufacturing company, beside being one of the most prosperous industries in this section with a bright future ahead of it,has a record behind it that well entitles it to the distinctionjof be ing n standby in Danville. For more than twenty years it has been forging along in the even tenor of its way. a source of steady and remunerative em ployment to it hands every working day of the year when they chose to ap ply themselves to their tasks. There might be protracted shut-downs else where, but the stove works was al ways runuimz or in a condition to run For twenty years or more the busi ness lias been gaining ground and it is Still growing. Last week the company shipped a car load of Beaver stoves to Sau Francisco, which is an entirely new field. A circumstance that reflects well on Beaver stoves is the fact that the order came wholly unsolicited, from a party who had heard of the Danville stoves nnd came here to negotiate. Danville stoves arc oxport od to many foreign couutrles aud are found in South Africa, China a.-, well as in Mexico and Cuba. To keep pace witli the demand of the times the Danville Stove As Manu facturing company is constantly add ing to its product. The new Queen Bearer, the patterns of which were begun last summer, will be ready for the spring trade. This range,which is in two sizes aud twelve different styles,is made with lift-off nickel aud is plain in finish, just the kind of stove to please the fancy of the present day, which is constantly demanding some thing new. Work is well under wuy ou the pat terns of two other stoves that will be brought out this season. One of these is a new size of Beaver A, plain cab inet rauge and the other a new square parlor heater, which will be made in two sizes. A Birthday Party.

DISEASES OE MID-WINTER The loc»r registrar's report to the bureau of vital statistics for .Tannary shows the usual amount of illness in cidental to midwinter, although the general health is better rliau during the mouth of December. Eleven cases of typhoid fever were reported during January as against seven cases in December. -In propor tion to the population there is nothing abnormal in eleven cases of typhoid fever. Besides, thir majority of the cases were reported during the early part of the month and are now con valescent. There is scarcely any doubt but that Danville's practical immun ity from typhoid fever, which is pre vailing in so many of our neighboring towns, is due iu great measure to the, precaution of boiling water used for drinking and culinary purposes as well as to the efficacy of our filter plant, which oleanses and purifies the river water. As rotates to diphtheria, the most dieaded disease of childhood, the sit uation is much improved, thore being but one case iu January as against five cases of that disease.one of which was fatal, in the mouth of December. This is the season when pneumonia begins to gather in its victims. Dur ing January there were three cases, of this dreaded disease, one boiug fatal, as against one case in December, which was fatal. Scarlet fever made its appearance during January, three cases being re ported. There were no deaths from this disease. The general improvement as relates to the public health is noticeable iu the falling off of grippe. A couple of weeks ago there was scarcely a family but had one or. more victims of this disease. Some of the cases were attend ed with a good deal of suffering, while there were few who were not too bad ly indisposed to pursue their daily vocations. The falling off of grippe is attributed by the doctors to the more seasonable weather which has prevail ed during the couple of weeks past. Duriug January there were twenty five deatli in the district, six of these occurring at the hospital for the in sane. The births for December whioh were not previously printed, s. ere twenty three as against twenty-one deaths for that month GIFTS TO A WIFE, The Sentiment Thnt In Uei&r to the Heart of a Womnn. In a recent divorce case the husband, when asked if lie ever made his wife any Christmas or birthday presents, replied: "No; 1 am sorry to say L never did. I gave Mrs. power to draw on my bank account and to buy anything she wanted, i was mistaken. That was not all I should have done. That did not take the place of my buying things and taking them homo to her." It is astonishing how little even the majority of husbands know about the feminine nature. I recently heard a young wife say that she would rather have her husband bring her a bunch of violets than give her ten times the money they cost. But she said she could never make him appreciate the fact that money was not all that she needed. I know men who never think of tak ing homo a bunch of (lowers to their wives. They either think it unneces sary extravagance or that if their wives want flowers they can get them themselves. They do not realize that women prize the little courtesies, the little attentions and evidences of thoughtl'ulness more than money. It Is the Invitation to the little outing or vacation, the little trip to another city, the bringing home of tickets to the theater or opera or to the concert or lecture—lt Is the hundred and one lit tle things that make the average wo man happy and not merely the fact that her Imperative wants are supplied In a lump snm. Most men overlook the fact that It does not take so much, after all, to satisfy the average woman. It Is largely a question of the right spirit, of doing the things which Indicate thought fulness. Just giving a wife a check once In awhile, no matter how large it may be, or telling her to draw as much as she needs from your bank account will not satisfy a womanly woman. It Is yourself she wants with the money.-Success Magazine. Shuplif«ern In Hookiitorea. "Ours Ik one business In which there are no women shoplifters," said a book 4l ''''or yesterday.

COURT FACES UNIQUE DILEMMA Complications in the Fisher case during the past few clays put the Northumberland oouutv court in one of the strangest dilemmas in which any judge has ever been placod Fisher is accused of murder and his oase was to have come up yesterday. Under the law it could not again be poatponod except by request of the de fendant as it had already been twice put off, and as Fisher still has no counsel he can hardly bo put on trial for his life. Nevertheless he insisted on being tried. "Have it over" he said. "I don't caro whether you hang me or not." If his case would go by default he could no longer be held in prison. The honorable court looked over the attorneys present, attempting to dis cover some prospective lawyer for the defense. He again appealed to Welsh and Welsh, whom he had originally appointed. They firmly declined. "We will goto prison for contempt, your honor," they said, "rather then take up the case again." The last time they called on their cliout a desperate flat fight had ensued and they have no deßire to consult him again. ProH*ure was brought to bear on Fisher, and after several days hard work he was persuaded to ask for a continuance, which was granted with great alacrity by the court on Tuesday evening. CASTOR IA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought LOCAL OPTION. There is a very decided sentiment 'throughout this Commonwealth in favor of the enactment of a reasonable local option law. To advocate local option is not necessarily to favor local prohibition. It is simply to take the ground that the people of each coun ty, or samller district, have a right to determine whether or not they want the licensed liquor business to exist in their community.

A Sinn Mny Gain and Lone Five i Poundfi In the Day. "A dinner Ilk.* this Increases one's ! weight two and a half pounds," said , ft physiologist as he finished his more than generous meal. "An average din ner increasiN. the weight two pounds two ounces. Did you ever consider ' how the weight fluctuates night and I day ? * "We lose In bed at nlglit two pounds six ounces. Between breakfast and r lunch we lose fourteen ounces. Be tween lunch and dinner we lose ten ounces more. Total loss, four pounds fourteen ounces. That goes on every day of our lives. "At breakfast we gain one pound twelve ounces; at lunch, one pound; at dinner, as I said before, two pounds two ounces. Total gain, four pounds fourteen ounces. "Thus, day by day, gaining nearly five pounds, our weight remains uni form. If we ate but a half or a third what we do, it Is logical to suppose that our organs, digestive and so on, b would have but half as much work to i do and that our brains In consequence , would be able to do twice as much, j That is the logical supposition, and no , doubt It is the correct one, but man la still too nearly animal to eat only what he needs. He insists upon eating till he can hold no more." Saved by the Apoatlea' Creed. The value of a religious education was once experienced by the skeptic Hume. He fell ofT a temporary bridge connecting old and new Edinburgh and sank Inn bog. After many cries for assistance an old woman drew 1 near and began to make preparations for saving him. But as soon as she I saw who It was she would save she de l sisted and bade him stay where h< 1 was. L"I am uo atheist," protested Hume. "I assure you. good woman, you are mis taken." "Well, then, If you are not an atheist," she cried, "you can say your belief, and if you cannot do that I will be no aid to save an infidel." Ilume accordingly, embogged in the swamp— de prof undls—recited the Apostles' Creed and, having made no mistake In the recital, was duly saved by this se vere Samaritan.
