DISCONTINUES PUBLICATION
A Gradual Change ol Conditions Under
Wbicb the Daily Newspaper Has
Crowded Ont the Weekly Publication
Some ol the Inlluences Which are at
Work.
With this issue the Danville Intel
ligencer, following a long and useful
career, bids farewell to its readers.
After a determined effort aud an ex
periment covering several years, the
I publisher of the paper sees no other
alternative but to discontinue its pub
lication.
For several years past, there has
been a gradual change of conditions
as affects newspapers, brought about
by the establishment of the r 112. d.
routes and other influences. The week
ly newspaper is no longer in demand.
The daily sheet, with its budget of
fresh news, has come to the front and
it is here to stay. No matter in what
locality the weekly newspaper may be
the experience of the publisher is the
same. There is scarcely a day but
some old aud nearly life-long subscrib
er decides to discontinue the weekly
and subscribes for the daily paper. A
new generation of readers has come to
the front aud these are out of all har
mony with conditions that prevailed
during the time of their fathers, when
the weekly newspaper was a success
tul factor.
It is in the face of oonditious such
as these that the publisher of the lu
telllgencer lias battled. Auy amount 1
of hard work was put into the enter
prise jevery honorable expedient that
could be devised was resorted to, but {
naturally the fight was a losing one. (
It is with great regret that we sever ;
so many pleasant ties aud turn our | 1
footsteps toward other fields where •
greater opportunities present them- j
selves.
Iu conclusion wo would exteud
thanks to all our patrous The Intel*
ligencer is a very old newspaper and
there are many into whose homes it
has been a weekly visitor during their
life time. Ic has solved its day aud 1
generation and it now stops down and |
out aud delivers the field o\e:* to its
more modern rival.the daily newspap- 1
er.
Fayiueut of all bills will berecoived

10 PROTECT
HER PROPER
A session of couit wan held Satur
day morning with his Honor Judge
Evans and Associates Blee aud Wei- J
liver on the bench. Some routine work J
was disposed of, after which the court
proceeded with a hearing on the ap
plication for the appointment of a
guardian for Elizabeth Mark ley under
the acts of 1895 and 1901.
The respondent in this case is a sis- '
ter of Mrs. Catharine Fieglesof Maus- |
dale, the petitioner in the case. Miss
Markley, now advaucod in years, dur- j
ing the gieater part of her life was '
employed in the home of a wealthy
family in one of the southern counties
of the State. She took good care of 1
her savings and, guided by wise coun
sel, invested them profitably. There- j
suit is that in her old age she has a
snug competency to fall back upon.
Some years ago sbe accepted an in
vitation to come to Mausdale aud live ;
with her sister, Mrs. Fiegles, where
she remained for some time. She is
now living at the home of John Min
tzer in Coal township, Northumber- j
laud couuty. Whatever difference may ,
have existed among the relatives of
Miss Markley, they are now all agreed
that by reasouof heradvauced age aud
impaired faculties she is unfit to man
age her property aud that in order to
protect'her interests from desiguing
persons there should be aguardiau ap
pointed to look after her affairs Her
property consisting mostly of railroad ;
and bauk stock is secured iu a safety
deposit box of tlie Danville National
bauk. Its present valuatiou is some- |
thing over five thousand dollars
All the parties iu iuterest were pre
sent at court last Saturday, with the
exception of tlio respondent, whose
physical condition, by a physician's
certificate, was shown to be such as to
render her unable to be present At
torneys Charles C. Lark aud Patrick
F. Brennan,members of the Northum
berland couuty bar,along with Edward
S. Gearhart, of this city, represented
the petitioner.
The first witness called was John R.
Tietsworth of Shatuokin, son-in-law
of Oatlierine Fiegles. Ho has known
Miss Murkily since 1905. Ho lias trans
acted business for Iter and declares
that she impresses him as unfit to
mauagc her affairs. She can neither
read uor write and at no time seems
to comprehend the nature of the busi
ness in haud. She is abseutmiuded and
forgetful, repeating the same instruc
tions over and over. The witness de
clared that since he had taken charge
of her affairs Miss Markley had spent
over #BOO on the old house iu Valley
township, which he considered money
unwisely expended.
Mrs. Annie Anderson, daughter of
Mrs. Fiegles and niece of the respond
ent, was next called to the staud. Her
testimouv corroborated the preceding
witness. She was of the opinion that
if her auut continued to expend her
money as she did while living at Maus*
dale 44 it would all he gone in a few
years."
On the strength of the above testi
mony Judge Evans appointed Patrick
F. Brenuau, Esq., guardian to take
care of the property of the said Eliza
beth Markley and directed that he fur
nish bond iu the sum of $7,000.
Tour Through the South.
W. A Sechler, general manager of
the Danville Stove & Manufacturing
company, returned home yesterday
j from an extended business trip through
the south. His furthest point south
' was- Charleston, S. C., while other im
portant towns embraced in the tour
were Atlanta, Ga., Ohattauooga,
| Teuu., Baltimore. Wilmington and
I Cincinnati.
The Dauville Stove and Maufactur
iug company's goods are haudled bv a
jobber iu Charleston. They are also
sold iu Wiliniugtou, Del., and at a
number of other points in the ter
ritory embraced by the trip.
Mr. Sechler was much impressed
with evidences of enterprise as well
as the euormous resources of the couu
try,apparent eveu iu a hurried journey
through the south. The happy-go-lucky
style of liviug. which up until a late
day was a pomiueut characteristic
south of Mason and Dixon's line, is
not uoticed so much at the present
time. The people seem to have caught
the commercial spirit of the times aud
there is a general awakening. Develop
ment is somewhat held in check by
the lack of skilled labor but un organ
ized effort is being put ou foot to se
' cure immigration of the right sort aud
j with the labor problem solved the fu
' ture of the South will be assured.
At Charlestou the season is about
two months in advance of us The
rees are heavy with foliage aud the
farmers are working iu the fields. The
spect of things is the same as is seen
in our own latitude about .Tune Ist.

IDG OF
SCHOOL BOH
Leonard Foulk was elected school
director from the fourth ward Monday
night to succeed D. Aust Lutz, who
has moved out of town. Mr. Ortli
announced that a vacancy existed, ex
plaining that Mr. Lutz has located in
Jersey Shore, having already removed
his household goods. He suggested
that a successor be elected to fill Mr.
Lutz' unexpired term.
Mr Heiss nominated Leonard Foulk.
The choice seomeu to bo regarded with
favor and he was unanimously elected
as director from the fourth ward. His
term will expire in June 1908.
A. H. Groue,chairman,reported that
the high school committee in conjunc
tion with a'committee of the senior
class aud the faculty of the school had
held a mooting to consider the ques
tion of a class play to be preseuted by
the graduating class in connection
with the coming commencement. The
(dass, he said, had selected a play, en
titled: 14 A scrap of paper."
The number in the class is thirty
one, while the play has twelve char
acters. Mr. Groue said that the cost
outailed in presenting the play as esti
mated by the committee would be lit
tle, if any, less than #2OO. Considering
that the only room available is the
court house.it seemed doubtful wheth
er a sufficient number of tickets could
be sold to meet all the expenses. This
doubt. Mr. Groue said, was fully ap
preciated aline by the class committee,
the faculty aud the high school com
mittee of the board. The first ques
tion to dispose of, therefore, was who
should make up the deficit, in case one
should occur? Would the school board
hold itself responsible?
The matter was discussed at length,
but the board was not favorably im
pressed and thought it would bo inad
visable to depart from the old and
established order. On motion of Mr.
Orth it was decided not to grant the
request of the graduating class asking
permission to present a class play.
Truant officer Youug presented his
report for the past month,which show
ed that 190 pupils were out of school
owing to illness. There were 14 cases
of truancy; ten pupils were detained
at home for want of proper clothing
and shoes. Fourteen notices were serv
ed.
Secretary Orth presented a state
ment relating to the lecture "Where
the Other Half Lives," delivered by
Professor Powers in this city Satur
day,a portion of the proceeds of which
wero to be applied to the schools.
Tickets were sold by pupils to the
amount of $lO4, door receipts were
$13.80, making a total of $117.80. Ex
penditures amounted to #48.95, leav
ing a balance of $(»8 83. This was
divided equally betweeu Professor
Powers aud the borough schools.
The followiug directors were pres
ent at the meeting: Fischer, Orth,
Swarts, Pursel, Fish, Heiss, Groue and
Trum bower.

The runaway couple, lti-year-ohl
Sara Phillips, of Berwick, and George
Foulk, of this city,who left the form
er town last Sunday, aud have since
beeu accused by the girl's mother,
Mrs. Heury Phillips, with taking with
them S2OO stolen money bolonging to
Mr. aud Mrs. Phillips.have been heard
from.
The word from the couple came in
the form of a poßt card from Nort
hampton to the girl's brother in Ber
wick, aud was signed, "Your married
sister, Mrs. George Foulk " The post
card stated that the couple were leav
iug for St. Louis.
Mrs. Phillips,the girl's mother, yes
terday made some sensational state
ments. She said that she attributed
her daughter's actions to some peculiar
influence that had beeu exerted upon
her. For some time. Mrs. Phillips
stated, her daughter had been actiug
queerly, just as if she didn't know
what she was doing; her actions
strougly suggesting hypuotic influ
ence. At times when her mother ad
dressed her she seemed to answer with
difficulty.
Some time ago, upon coming down
stairs in the morning her mother found
a 82 cailbre revolver on the table. The
revolver was loaded. When shown the
weai>ou later, Foulk claimed it as his
property.

Reiley Turns up at Kipp's Run.
T. E. Reiley, of 4 Edison Burner"
fame, was heard of again yesterday
morning at Kipp's Run, where he
evidently intended to ply his trade,
but his plans were nipped in the bud.
Reiley appeared at the home of I
James Carr at Kipp's Run yesterday j
morning, aud asked for the lady of the j
house. He was met by Mr. Carr, how- i
ever, who inquired what he wanted.
Reiley started the ball rolling by in- |
quiring of Mr. Carr about his lanterns '
and lamps, whether they were work- |
ing satisfactorily, etc.
Before the conversation had gone !
very far Mr. Carr notioed Reiley pick
up a copy of yesterday's Morning
News, and aft9r a glance at the story
iu which ho appeared as the hero of a
Aim flam game,he seemed to suddenly j
develop a desire to be on his way.
After Reiley had departed Mr. Carr 1
read the article,aud then knew at once
with whom he had been conversing.
The description fitted perfectly. Reiley
is slightly over five and a half feet
tall, slim and wears a long coat re
sembling a rain coat.
Reiley was tired out of Danville
Tuesday morning about 10 o'clock af
ter spending the night in the lock-up.
He does not seem to be traveling very
fast as it took him one whole day to
reacli Kipp's Run.

HARD ON RETAILERS.
The Greeusburg Review is apparent
ly very much dissatisfied with the
present administration of the pure
food department and olamorß for a
change iu methods. It thinks the re
tailer lias been badgered by the depart
ment, unmindful of two facts— the
health of the people must be protect
ed, aud the State cannot get after
manufacturers or jobbers residing iu
other States. Now, however, the na
tional govorumeut will probably be
dependent upon to reach the manu
facturer who does not live in the State
whilo the retailer will be unmolested.

NUMBER
A TRANSFER
OF LICENSE
j Court convened at 10 a. in yester
| day for tlie purpose of taking up the
j matter of license transfers. His Honor
j Judge Evans ami Associate L W. Wei
liver were on the bench.
The petition of James Ryan for a
transfer of license from his present
j stand, No. 52C>, to No. 500,Mi1l street,
| the hearing of whit h was to have taken
: place next Monday, was withdrawn
and a new application was filed.
Mr. Ryan in his petition asking
leave to withdraw former applica
tion set forth that on the sth day of
j March, 1907, he presented his applica
( tion or petition to the court praying
I for a transfer of license—that the ap
plication was published in two issues
of three newspapers.
The petitioner was informed and be
lieves that said publication was not in
accordance with the law regulating
such matters and that a transfer of
license without publication as provid
ed by the act of May 13, 1887, would
be void and of no effect.
The petitioner.therefore.prayed that
leave be granted him to withdraw hie
application aud that he be permitted
to file another application and that the
court should direct and desiguate in
what newspapers aud for what length
of time the said publication should be
made.
The court on reading the application
granted tho petitioner leave to with
draw his petitiou as prayed for.
The new location as described by
James liyan in his second application
for a transfer of license is at the
North oast corner of Mill and Centre
streets. The premises, occupied br
Pursel & Montgomery as a store, have
been purchased by James Ryan during
the year past.
The petitioner sets forth that he was
born in Danville and that for twenty
five years past lie lias been a resident
of the third ward. He represents that
the building No. 5'!H, Mill street, oc
cupied at present, does not afford ad
equate accommodations for the increas
ing demands of the public; that a
large portiou of the patronage is com
posed of farmers and transient patrons
from the couutry, who demand more
commodious accommodations for them
selves, their horses aud wagons; that
the present stable accommodations are
entirely inadequate and not of easy
aocess.
The petitioner further represents
that he is "desirons to obtain a li
cense to vend vinous, spiritous, malt,
and brewed liquors in quantities loss
than one quart" iu a certain house
situated as above described aud known
as No. 500, Mill street, aud for that
purpose desires that the license hereto
fore granted to liini be transferred to
the location last described,for the rea
son that the latter buildiug is a two
story brick equipped with all modern
conveniences, having more light and
better accommodations lor the travel
ing public,the lot on which the build
ing is located having orected thereon
a large aud commodious stable.
The conrt directed the application
to be filed and the 3rd day of April at
10 o'clock was fixed for the hearing.
The wholesale liquor license grant
ed to J. T. Fiudlev at No. 311 Mill
street was transferred to the new pro
prietor, John Bateiuan.
Big Mill Burned at Herndon.
Fire, involving the loss of property
worth from $15,000 to $20,000, broke
out in Herndon at 10:40 o'clock yester
day morning. Bogar & Bingamen's
flour mill aud three warehouses of
George Deppen are totally destroyed.
Tho blaze started in the flour mill
and rapidly spread throughout the
buildiug. Before anyone was aware
that there was a fire it had gained
such headway that there was no hope
of saving tho mill. Sparks and pieces
of burning wood set fire to George
Deppen's warehouses situated nearby.
Practically all the able bodied men
of Herndon turned out to fight the
flames. There is no fire department in
that town, aud recent agitation has as
yet produced not even a bucket bri
gade. The efforts of the citizens were
to confine the conflagration to as
small au area as possible. At twelve
o'clock the mill and warehouses were
still burning uncontrolled, but there
were strong hopes that one, of the
warehouses might be saved.
Earl Deppeu, son of Geo. Deppen
aud brother of Geo. E. Deppen, of
Suubury, was overcome by the dense
smoke in the mill while trying to re
cover important papers and other
valuable property. Several men rushed
into the building and found him ly
ing on the floor unconscious. They
carried him out aud he soon revived.
Bogar & Bingeman's mill is one of the
largeßt iu the lower end of Northum
berland county. It is a total loss.
Tho fire was brought under control
at noon. Three warehouses wero total
ly destroyed besides the mill. Repre
sentatives of the insurance companies
estimate the total loss to be flfi.OOO.
On the flour mill SBOOO insurance is
carried by the Pennsylvania Millers*
