AWOjIIVS HORRIBLE FAf E
KICKED AND BEATEN TO DEATH
Drnaken RofHan fa Her Husband's
Drinking Siloon-A Terri
riui.AiiKi.riii , Pa, Mav 31. A
doctor reported to the police early
this morning that Mrs. Serafino Com
forti, e ged thirty, residing at No !H)7
South Ninth street, died about mid
night from frightful injuries leceived
by being kicaed and beaten. The
w man's husband keeps a liquor sa
loon at the place mentioned. A basty
investigation shows that while Mr. and
Al re.Coinforti and several otherpereons
were in tlie bar-room, about midnight,
Henry Bossel entered and insulted
antl struck one of tlie women. A
tight ensued, du'ing which Mrs. Com-
foitit"rewa bottle which narrowly
mised Bossel's head Half an hour
later, when Mrs. Comforti went into a
rear room, Bossel, without being no
ticed, followed her. He caught her
by the throat and pounded her faci
into a jeiiy, and when sue lay uncon
scious on the floor, he kicked and
jumped upon her several times.
When a physician arrived the uo for
tunate woman was dead. An ex
animation showed that Bossel had
actually kicked a hole in the
woman's abdomen, anil her intestines
protruded. She bail been in a deli
cate condition, and the U"born babe
hud also Ix'en killed by lios el s bru
txlity. The police a nested John
Comf.rti, tbe husband of the victim:
Henry Bossel, the murderer: Lous
.uiiKK'i miu, ii. i' miegt'u, w h party
to the crime; Nicholas Marbel and
Angclo Pen 7.o.
At a hearing this forenoon Bossel
was sent to prison to await the result
of tlie coroner's inqust, and ihe oth
ers were held as witnesses.
Later. the nlace where tho woman
met her death is a drinking place and
dance-liousa combined and is situated
in one of the worst n ighborhoods in
tlie citv, inhabited to a reat extent
by Italians of the lower class. The
Italians give conflicting statements as
to the cause of the woman's death and
ths majority of them sny she was no
kicked, but that after a free fight with
rliuirs, bolt es and glasses, in which
the men snd women joined, Mrs.
Comforti wus found dead on tlie Moor.
THE GAS qUESTIOX.
A New Proposition for the Old
Company t Entertain,
To tha Editors of tha Appaal :
Your industrious kterviewer has
given the opinion of a number of good
citizeca upon tho gas question, most
of whom object to the proposition of
the Gas Company, but i one propose
a solution or a proposal that would be
acceptable to the people. Although
rot called npoi by your reporter for
an opinioa, I feel that 1 am at liberty
to suggest an idea opoo tlie subject
that 1 think would be acceptable to
both lie rompa y anl the people.
My idea is this: Tte Gas Company ba
had all the chicken pe for the past
thirty years ; let them now give tlie
people a bite ; give the city all public
lights free anil the citizens gas for ten
years at (1 60 per thousand, and this
will satisfy all the opposition. If they
w ill not accept this proposition, make
the same ofler t tlie opposition or
new company ami they will, I am as
sured. 1 lit the first gas burner ever
lit in this city and was the first sec
rotary of the present company,
and tho entire woras was built under
my management and I paid for them,
ninl tlie entire cost was not over $75,
000. It has crown to $100,000-by
watering stock to a great extent -
and anew company can itart put
in a good plant at .ess thRn halt this
amount This proposition will
give the company a fair chance for
a dividend, and' tho people will bo
satisfied to i ay the price and would
p-efer to pay it "to having a new com
pany, even at a less price. Any propo
sition for a longer time or at a greater
yiice, I thiak, would be very seriously
objected to yy the ptople. In my
opinion no coritrAct for a longer time
should bs made nn any terms.

sentiment decUres it an evil. Claimed by
some as a neeesbary evil, lawa and opinion
both hedge it around with barriers. Evil
as it is, the manufacture and aale of li
quors has many apologists for its exist
ence. Dating their arguments froui Koali'a
dav they reach the present time with the
old, worn-out statements cf capital in
vested and labor employed which other
wise, must remain idle. The fallacy of thia
argument is evident to tlie least thought
ful. Jn a country aa large aa ours, with
only a fraction of its territory developed,
capital and labor will not want lor em'
ploynient in useful channels for many gen'
rations. We need not speak of the evils
wliieti follow the use ol alcohol, in anv
form. Thia community acknowledged
tuera, and in most communities the ten
dency is to control and narrow iu influ
ence. Keiorm haa made a great stride in
the past few years, and the sentiment of
tbe community, aided by legislation, haa
reduced the temptations of intemperance
greatly. Weak, worn and weary in body
aud mind, the auflerertowhom is riven a
medicine containing whWty, isin just tlie
eonamon to receive tne greatest present
in euecis ana to encourage an eprietite,
that may prove his ruin. The prescrip
tion by medical men and the use by their
patients, of remedies containing tonic
properties and stimulating ingredients
prepared without whisky ,aid reform. The
one Iron preparation accepted by the peo
ple ana endorsed Dy physicians as falling
their prescription is Brown's Iron Bitters.

gives strength and tone tothe over-worked
or worn-out system, calms the debilitated
nerves, rests the weary brain and eives
health to the sufferer, without the after
e fleets winch result from the use of whikkv
or malt liquors used for their stimulating
properties. It is worthy of note that the
most delicate person can take Brown's
Iron Bitters without producing nausea or
other evil etlects, and it is thtvonly Iron

One of the fallacies of our people is. that
malaria can only he cured by the use of
J 1 T 1 - I M, 1
quinine ami whisk-, in cuius and levers,
spring fevers, bilious fever, in fact in all
malarial fevers, hetteriindmoreperniunent
results are obtained by theuseof P.rown'a
Iron Bitters. It leaves no unsatisfactory
effects to plague the patient and creates
and encourages no abnormal appetite.
- We claim that Brown's Iron Bitters is a
factor in the temperance movement. It
aids by its beneficial action, and will assist
the intemperate in their desire to reform,
by giving tone and strength to the dis
ttirlied and poisoned Stomach. When the
blood, which is the source of life and
health, liecoincs weak, watery and impure,
it causes many diseases bearing many
names. Chief among these are the stom
ach, liver and kidney troubles. However
they are called they belong to the same
family. The action of Brown's Iron Bit
ters in removing the impurities and en
riching the blood will cure these diseases.
It promotes digestion and cures the dys
peptic, drives away the bile, and starts
into healthy action all the channels of the
liver through which the blood must flow
to be purified. Rheumatism which tortures
the body and neuralgia which alllicts both
body and mind are directly traced to im
poverished condition of the blood.
Brown's Iron Bitters calms the nerves and
strengthens the body, while its prompt
action in changing the condition of the
blood relieves torture snd cures the dis
ease. It is left to yotiroption whether you
will suffer or procures bottle of Brown's
Iron JJitterst which cost but a dollar) and
be cured. A word here to the purchasers:
There are people base enough to trifle
with Buttering, rtome have attempted to
imitate this medicine. Don't be deceived.
They urge you to buy a bottle that appears
like Brown's Iron Bitters. Tlie contents
are not the same. Tlie skill of its combi
nation and the quality of its ingredients
prevent its imitation. The genuine lias
