Mrs. Ashton, widow of the deceased, who accompanied the body to this city Monday, stated that Clark was un oonscions from the time of the accid ent until death ensued.

He was riding on the pilot of the engine through Unadilla. N. Y., when in some manner he lost his footing and fell to the side ot the track. The momentum carried him a distance of fifty feet beside the train and he was struck several times by the trucks of the cars in the train. Al though he did not get under the wheels he was shockingly bruised, the most severe injuries being about the head. He was picked up unconscious and taken to the station at Unadilla where bis wounds were temporarily dressed and from where he was sent on the first train to the Fox Memorial hospit al at Oneonta, where lie was joined by his wife Sunday evening. There were several compouud fractures of the *kuli aud from the first the case ad mitted of no hope. Death followed about 7 :80 o'clock Monday rooming. Clark Ashton was thirty years of age. He was born in Danville aud re sided here uutil last August when he removed to Carboudale. While here he was employed in various pursuits. For awhile before moving away he kept a store on East Market street and manu factured and vended ice cream. He was au active enterprising man and his store did not succeed to please him. It was with the hope of improv ing his circumstances that he sold out and removed to Carbondale, where he beetle a brakeman. He was highly esteemed not only in this city, but al „ so in Carbondale While in Danvilie he was a member of the Uuited Evan gelical church.

Although the American Car & Foundrv Co. announces that it has plenty of men at its Berwick works at present, immigrants continue togo there. This week forty Hungarians, just fresh from their native land, got to Berwick with the expectation of receiving employment in the car plant. They were turned away. There is talk of a general advance in railroad freight rates to overcome the increase in costs of operation and maintenance on account of high wages and prices of material. The railroads are threatening to in crease the rates of carrying coal and the legislature threatens to put a tux on coal, all of which will have to be paid by the unfortunate consumer.

Illlffi Ul is nan A law, which is misunderstood ami which is causing our county commis- considerable embarrassment, is the act of assembly authorizing and requiring each county to bury and to provide a lieadstoue for any honorably discharged soldier, sailor or marine, who served in the army or navy dur- . ing the late rebellion or any preceding war, and who shall thereafter die in j that county leaving insufticeut means to defray the necessary burial ex- I pauses. In each county the act requires that in every township aud ward suitable persons be appointed to look after and bury the deceased soldiers, sailors or marines who are entitled to the bene fit of the above act. Before assuming charge aud expeuse of burial, section second,provides that the men appoint ed must first satisfy themselves by careful inquiry into and examination of all the circumstances ,m ,the case whether the deceased soldier, sailor or marine they are called upon to bury serve<l the army or navy and was honorably discharged aud died in their township or ward, leaving insufficent means to defray necessary burial ex penses. If they are satisfied that such facts exist they shall take charge of the body aud cause it to be buried aud thereupou they shall immediatelv re port their action in the case to the county commissioners, settiug forth the facts acertained by them, together' with the name, rank, command to which such deceased soldier, sailor or marine bel)uged,the date of (TTscharge, &c.,which report shall be dulv attest ed by three reputable persous residing in the same township or ward with the deceased soldier, sailor or marine, knowing the fact that the latter died without sufficient means to defray necessary burial expenses. The above provisions, our county commissioners think, when known ought to make it clear, not only that veterans ot the war must die wholly without means before they can be buried at the expense of the county, hut also that whatever is done in the premises must be done promptly, as soon as death pccurs, if the provisions of the law are to lived up to. The couuty commissioners are much perplexed by applications tljat come into the office mouths after the death aud burial of the veterau Pas occur red. Persous who are unacquainted with the provisions of the act seem to thiuk that by establishing cor tain facts at any time subsequeut to death money will be paid by the couuty for burying deceased soldiers,sailors or marines. This is a mistake, as those who ap ply soou learn. The death rate is rapidly increasing among the vetorans and it is only just that all should know what the law provides as to their burial and what procedure must be employed. sleigh Ride to Klinesgrove. A sloigniug party was most royally eutertained at the couutry home of Mr. aud Mrs. Edward Savidge, near Klinesgrove, Saturday evening. An excelleut luncheou was served, the fliuuing room being most artistically decoraled for the occassiou. The guests included people from Sunbury,Blooms burg, Williamsport and Danville. The party was chaperoned by Mrs. E. A. Adams of Danville. Those present \\ere: Miss Anna Var uell, of Stiuburv,Miss Georgie White, of Bloomsburg ; Misses Rella Adams, Desda Campbell, Gertrude Linker, Ruth Carodiskv. Maine Richards and Sara (Mark.

The Central Pennsylvania confer euce of the United Evangelical church will convene this year in Carlisle, March Tth. This is oue of the largest conferences of lliis denomination, be ing compose*', of J34 ministers and 110 lay delegates. Bishop H. B. Hartzler, D. D., of Harrisburg, will preside. This session of the conference will be of more than usual interest since there are twenty-four of the pastors who have reached the four year limit on their present charge and must there fore move, which will necessitate the moving of others. Among the promin ent congiejjutions that will he affected this year by the four year limit will be Scrautpn, North Berwick. Blootus burg. St. John's, Williamsport; Mil ton, Lewistowu, Lemoyue, Trinity, York; Red Lion, Olive Branch, Balti more and Ihigerstowu. The term of four of fin; presiding elders expires at this conference, two of them however are eligible for reelection, the other two having served eight years, or twc terms, are therefore by the law of the church not eligible for reelection, hence there will.be two new presid ing elders to elect. The conference will be in session about one week. Mr. and firs. Blohn Entertain. Mr. aud Mrs. Albert Blohn enter* tained a number of friends at their home near Swenoda Saturday evening. The guests were as follows: Margaret Cooke, Elizabeth Phillips, Katharine Bowers, Ruth Barnhart, Mary Am wine, Libbie Pursel.Lulu Irvin,Marg aret Gabel, Carrie Irvin, Dora Aru wino, Grace .Barnhart, Bessie Arn wine, Rachel Barnhart, Frank Blohn, Arthur Coofcer, Walter Wilson, James Gething, Walter Blohn,Stewart Cooke, Harry Hawkins, Jasper Stettler, Evan Hawkins, Norman Krum.

Mr. and Mrs. John Arnwiue and Mr. Edward Hawkins P esideut Baer of the Reading rail road, in a letter to the legislature, de clares there is no necessity for govern ment regulation,other than to prevent unreasonable discriminations, and says, the railroad compauies cannot afford to give a two cents per mile passenger rate. MS KILE HORSE FALLS 10 Driving in the dark into the rail road instead of the high way, the horse of Will Webb, of Pine Summit fell through the railroad culvert about a half mile from Strawberry Kidge on Tuesday night and it required the coui | bined efforts of Bix men with ropes and tuckle to pull the animal back from his position. | Webb had been at the Strawberry I Ridge hotel during the early part of | the evening and then started for home along the road which runs parallel to the S. B. & ii. railroad tracks. A ! short distance from the Jiidjgo the | highway crosses the traok and then continues on again on the other side of the track. In the dark, Webb did not clear the track, but turned the horse up the railroad, thinking it the 'highway. A short'distance from the crossing is a culvert over'.a creek, and as the ties are sixteen inohes apart, the auiinal lost his footing ami his four legs went through the culvert. The animal was helpless,and the driv er could not release him from his posi tion. Iu a short time a half dozen will ing hands gathered at the culvert, and rones, planks and tackle were procur ed. It was fully half au hour, how ever, before the horse could be gotteu back up on the track and back off the culvert. The harness and cutter shafts were badly injured, but uone of the horse's ' limbs were broken, though badly cut. He was taken back lo Heaver's hotel where driver and horse remained un til last evening A curious feature of the affair is that the horse ventured out ou the open trestle.as most horses cannot eveu be forced onto such dangerous places.

Skeei, well known in Bloomsburg musical circles, is reorg anizing the Bloomsburg choral society and his plan is to present iu the Spring Staiuer's oratorio, "The Daughter of Janus." It is expecterl that there will be a chorus of HO voices chosen from Bloomsbnrg's best musical talent. The soloists will be from out of town and it is fully expected to have siugers of wide reputation. Futhermore, it is hoped to have orchestral accompani ment making it the most elaborate musical production ever given in this section of the state. Mr. Skeer lias been engaged in the work of reorgan izing the chorus for some weeks. Carried Baby 40 Hiles. Mrs. Auuie Stimo arrived a few days ago in Tamaqua from Hungary, with a small babe,expecting some rel atives to meet her there. They were not there and having no money she started on foot for Shamokin, forty miles distant carrying her child in a guunysack. She reached her destina tion on Saturday nearly starved and frozen, when relatives took charge of her. Spring Days Coming. The month with usually the greatest amouut of winter weather has stone by, and February is a short month, while March 17th winds up our big storms as a rule. The most of our win ter is past, the light are in creasing and already the thoughts of coining spring stii the heart with hope and thanksgiving. 120 Days of Typhoid. Horace W. Davenport, of Wellsboro, has b«en ill with typhoid fever 1 days. He has had three relapses ana for the fouith time is convalescing with good hopes for his recovery. The ease is considered a remarkable one by physicians.

The body was brought to this city on Monday evening and taken to the : residence of J. H. Weaver, Ferry street, 1 ironi where the funeral was Held. Al though in a strange laud, without a single relative to follow liim to the grave, yet the deceased was consigned to his last resting place with every mark of respect. ; Tll « funeral, which took place at 3 o'clock, was quite well attended. The services were conducted by Kev. L. W. Walters,pastor of Pine Street Lutli- ] eran church, assisted by Kev. L. Dow ] Ott, pastor of Trinity M. E. church, j During the funeral several appropriate I selections woro rendered on the piano ! by Miss May Books. A duett "Over ; Life's Pathway I Journey," a favorite i selection of the deceased, was sung by | Mrs. Cunningham and Miss Katliryn ' Keiin. The pall bearers were Tarring G. i Brown, B. W.

But of course she will be disappointed and her brother's failure to appear will be un explained until after the mails arrive. Mr. Povey's baggage was already on the Nordlaud and he was in sight of the vessel when lie fell on the street. I It is accounted a fortunate circumst- I anee that death occurred before he was , carried out to sea. As it was, lie was given a burial by his friends in a town j where he had formed many attach ments, while, if death had occurred 1 on the Nordland, the body would have beeu in the hauds of strangers and would have been disposed of accord ing to the rules provided for such cases. The flfty-ninth congress has only fil teenjlegislative days left before it ex pires by limitation at noon on Marcli 4th. In that short time a vast amount of legislation must bo crowded hurri edly through according to the pernic ious custom which the short session has engrafted upon the federal govern ment. Although congress has beeu in session since December 3 only ono measure of large importance to the general public has been passed by both houses and approved by the president —the anti-campaign contribution bill. To be sure congress found time to in crease the salariosof its members from $5,000 to 17,500 per annum. From the present outlook there is serious danger of a repetition of the experiences undergone in the closing hours of the last session. At that time there was such an avalanche of bills, finally agreed to by both houses after long delay, that the enrolling clerks wero simply overwhelmed and could not keep pace, thus delaying the ad journment. If such a thing should happen again this year the only par liamentary resource will he to turn back the hands of the clock when noon of March 4 arrives. As the session thus enters upon what may be called its active stage the most graphic and comprehensive resume of what has been done already and what remaius to be done may be given in the following table of important gen eral measures: Passed by both houses and signed by the president—The anti-campaign con tribution bill. Passed by the house and awaiting action by the senate—The bill giving the government tne right of appeal in criminal cases. The bill making the free alcohol law effective. The river and harbor bill. Passed by the senate and awaiting action by the house—The bill limiting the hours of railroad employes. The ship subsidy bill (passed by the senate at the last session). Bills that are apparently dead—The Philippine tariff bill (passed by the house year, but held up in the I senate Philippine committee without hope of being reported). The White, mountain and Appalachian forest re- | servo bill) passed by houses last year, but apparently hopelessly dead locked in conference). The many annual appropriation bills, diplomatic and consular, fortifi cations, Indian, agricultural, naval, "j postofflce, sundry, pension,general de- Jj ficiency, etc., are either awaiting ac- »| tion in one or the other brauches or j not yet reported. In addition to the j above are the San Dominican,Algecir- ' as and probably the Japanese treaty, ! I which must apparently wait until a ' special session of the senate after March 4. Tiiere is also the Smoot case, which will be decided Febnrary 20, when Senator Smoot will undoubtedly be sustained.

We sailed across the Hudson river to New Jersey and plunged into a cloud. After traveling twenty miles I descend ed to drop* a note to my wife, assuring lier of our safety. Again we shot into a cloud. Presently we drifted over a village and, with that exaltation that accompanies tho sensation of floating in tho air, enjoyed to a strange degree the music of church bolls drifting up from below.

London Spectator. A FIRST NIGHT AUDIENCE. 'l'lie t row,' Thai Makm Ip Neir York's Inmon "Death%vatch." It would l*e difficult in a line to say Just what tlie character of the tirst night audience in New York city is. There are the critics, of course, a dozen )i' so of rather subdued and timorous looking little men who wander lone soniely about, not seeming to have the courage to speak to anybody outside of their own set and who are general ly followed by the vengeful glances of •«oine hurt actor. Aside from the assortment of young mllliouaives who like the theatrical at mosphere, the main constituency of the Frst night nudieuce Is the "profession" and the allied arts, the criminal law .vers, managers, backers of shows, etc. in the early put of the season there will always be a number of well known actors and actresses who have not yet gone 10 work and who are enjoying their vacations, much as the engineer does during his two weeks' rest in Au gust. by spending it at the^oundhouse the theater. And this i:i general constitutes the aggregation that lias become famous, or infamous, in theatrical circles as the "deathwatch." They are supposed to be a very difficult body of people to please, but, as a matter of personal ex perience, I have not seen a .first night in ten years that has not been riotous ly and foolishly enthusiastic, no matter how worthless the offering was. At some of the worst failures of the season I have seen the star called be fore the curtain a dozen tines in the evening, the author and the manager obliged to make speeches of thanks for the "great reception," while floral tributes gave the whole thing the at mosphere of a hospital on visiting day. ~r.il nea tor.
