In the 35 years' history of the Weather Bureau there has been no such warm March 29 as yesterday. The maximum exceeded the previous record for March, that of Tuesday, by about two degrees. The record which Tuesday broke was that of 76.6, on March 22, 1894. The month that comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb may, therefore, in its frisk age, be said to have taken a hop, skip and jump, and clear ing April and May. landed in the lap of June, for the maximum of yesterday is usually experienced on June 5, and is, accordingly, two months ahead of the season in average. High temperatures were experienced through the North Atlantic and lower lake states. At Scranton the thermometer jumped to 84, at Cleveland to SO, and at Pittsburg to 82, all record-breakers. At Atlantic City and Cape May the maximum readings were (10 and C2 degrees respectively, about IS degrees lower than here. While overcoats and jackets have been shucked for the past few days, they are hardly as yet "has beens" of the season, for the forecast prophesies: "Showers, probably thunderstorms, and cooler Thursday; Friday fair." Poor Board Affairs. The last meeting of the old poor board wa9 held at Laurytown this week. Tax Collectors James N. Boyle, of Foster township; Anthony Rudewick, Freeland, and Thomas Martin, Hazle township, presented their duplicates and received a settlement in full. Richard Hall, of Stockton, who so cruelly deserted his four children some months ago, was present to re-claim the little ones. He promised faithfully to care for them, and on this condition was given charge of them on sixty days' probation. J. A. Titman, representing the Herring Hall Mervine Safe Co., explained the merits of his safe. The board decided not to make a purchase at this time. The directors ordered a new gas carbonator to re-place the one now in use, which is too small. There are at present 186 inmates in the institution. This number will be materially reduced with the advent of warm weather. The board will meet on Saturday for re-organization, when J. M. Stauffer will take his seat. Steward Gangwer and his wife will be retained beyond a doubt. The aspirants for the secretaryship are Mr. Tosh, the present in cumbent, and John Isaacs, who fills a position in the Drifton office of Coxe Bros. & Co. He has the backing of the Taxpayers' Association. Lafayette Glee (!lub has never been better than this year. Don't miss them.

The ever popular William H. West's Big Minstrel Jubilee will hold forth at the Grand Opera House Saturday afternoon and evening, and it Is promised by the management that this sea son they have gathered most of the lt known minstrel stars on the stage. The attracton is receiving the endorsement of the press everywhere. Most amusing is the first act of "Diplomacy," to 1)0 given by the Rose Coghlan company at the Grand Opera House on Wednesday, April 0, In which the Marquise de Rio Zares, a proud Spanish noblewoman, finds her self so pressed by creditors that she liU'rally dix-s not know which way to turn. The Marquise is a typical match making mamma. Her chief asset In life Is a very beautiful, honest and warm hearted daughter.

A local huckleberry shipper said to day that the outlook for the coming season indicated that the crop would be larger than ever before. The market, too, will be extended, so that there will be no over-supply of the luscious berries. The early spring is accepted by the dealers as a good sign for a large crop. The fact that especial pains will be taken to prevent forest fires this summer also tends to support the expectations that 1905 will be a ban ner year for the pickers and shippers of the little blue berries that find their way every summer into hundreds of thousands of homes scattered all over the eastern section of the United States. The territory lying between Maha- noy City and the Pocono Mountains is the true hucklebrry belt of the Unit ed States. Beyond Mahanoy City, to the south as far as Mt. Carmel, there is a certain yield every summer, but it cannot compare with the enormous quantity of berries that is brought in from the woods hereabouts. The Pocono field is practically in-developed, and it is said to be the richest section of the huckleberry belt. The region is inaccessible for many pickers, and for that reason the Pocono Mountain berries do not reach the market in any great numbers. There is one tract of berry woods in the Poconos that is literally covered with the little blue globules. It is said that if a person stands at the edge of this tract and looks over it in the midsummer it appears to be covered by a blanket of bluish color, So thick are the berries. One picker from this section who spent several weeks on the Poconos declares that the path of a person through this Elysian field of huckleberries would be marked, not by his footsteps, but by the trail left wherever he gathered berries. George Wetterau, a Hazleton huckleberry dealer, owns a tract of land in the Pocono region and one season he tried the experiment of employing a band of huckleberry pickers to camp in that section for the season. The venture did not prove a success, how the pickers were of a kind who did not like the loneliness of nature and they returned to civilization be fore they had picked any great amount of berries.

George Krick, the National Ex change real estate dealer, has just closed a deal whereby he sold what is known as the Pardee flour and feed mill, on the corner of Broad and Pine streets, containing 100 feet frontage on Broad street, for Frank Pardee, Esq., to Thomas R. Reese, of Audenried, who is operating a coal washery there, and is in the livery business In this city. Mr. Reese intends carrying on extensive business operations on this property. In fact, the building which is there now will stay where it Is- excepting it will get a general overhaul ing and will look like a new building when Mr. Reese gets through with the same. This property was valued at $20,000. Now Mr. Krick has some more properties to sell on Broad street. He also has the large, commodious Miller properties on the cor ner of Wyoming and Walnut streets to Bell, which can be bought for less than you can build them; also some very handsome homes on Diamond Avenue, and the Llebensberger properties, which are new houses, with every convenience, some of which can b bought on easy terms. If you want to buy a bargain in a house, lot or farm Krick always has the selection. If you have property you want to sell you better call on Krick. It may be just the property which he has a demand for. It costs you nothing to call at his office and talk about these things. Better conio right now.
