The building of a bridge across the Pennsylvania Railroad at Woodvale will have the effect of building up the vacant places on north side of the road. Already several new houses have been built on the hillside and others are in contemplation. The location is a commending one. Hitherto the north side has not been so desirable a location for residences, owing to the danger encountered in crossing the railroad. The bridge is not making much headway at present, but will be completed in a few months.


Otto Malanda, of Grubbtown, was before Justice Bland, of Millville, last evening on a charge of assault and battery, preferred by Edward S. Stark, of Rosedale. The trouble occurred at Mrs. Baker's saloon, in Minersville. Malanda was committed to lock-up by the Justice, but at a late hour last night the case was settled and the prisoner was released. Wednesday Malanda made information against Stark for assault and battery. A warrant was issued and placed in the hands of Officer Goggin.


Last Thursday Mrs. Susan Baab, who is now seventy-seven years of age, and who makes her home with her son Henry, in the First Ward, while passing along Franklin street, near the store of Mr. W. A. Kramer, noticed a small, bright object lying on the street in front of her. She picked it up and it proved to be a gold dollar. This incident is mentioned as indicating remarkable sharpness of vision in one so old.
