THAT HERE'S ISLAND DAM.
A Big Public Demonstration is flow
Being Arranged For,
WHICH MAT BEAT DAYIS ISLAND'S.
'All the Up-Biver Towns to be Invited "to
5 PBOPOSED SHIP CANAL TO LAKE EEIE
A public demonstration which may equal
the dedication of the Davis Island dam is
projected by friends of the coming improve
ments on the Allegheny river. It is pro
posed to open the work on the Govern
ment dam at Heir's Island this summer
with a big flourish of trumpets, not because
of the fact that the construction of a single
dam will be commenced, but for the reason
of its significance. The building of that
dam commits the Government to a continu
ation of the enterprise until a string of
locks and dams will extend from Pittsburg
to "Warren, making the noble stream nav
igable to the Xew York State line.
The Dispatch reported exclusively, a
few weeks ago, the purchase of property on
the river bank on the Allegheny side by
United States District Attorney Allen. He
acted under orders lrom the "War Depart
ment through the Attorney General. This
property is just below the island, and will
be the site of lock walls, abuttments and
tool houses. On the Pittsburg side the Dis
trict Attorney had to sue for the condemna
tion of property on account of a dispute as
to the price. This suit is now pending, but
"will be decided speedily.
THE PBOPOSED DEMONSTEATION.
It is the first breaking of this ground for
Government purposes that public spirited
men propose to formally celebrate. The
Executive Committee of the "Western Penn
sylvania Eiver Improvement Association
has already had a consultation on the
matter. The idea originated with this asso
ciation, and will probably be managed
tinder its auspices. The Executive Com
mittee's meeting, at which the sub
"ject was discussed, teas held in this
city. The Pittsburg members of
;this committee are Messrs. Arthur Kirk,
George Finley and E. T. Graham. Nearly
all of the towns along the Allegheny river
'and tributaries have a representative on the
committee. The officers of the "Western
Pennsylvania Eiver Improvement Associa
tion are Arthur Kirk, Pittsburg, President;
Hon. A. Cook, Potter county, Vice Presi
dent; S. "W. Colvin, Allegheny, Secretary;
E. T. Graham, Etna, Treasurer.
One of the members of the Executive
Committee stated to the writer yesterday
afternoon that the celebration will be such
as to fenlist the sympathy of business men
and citizens generally. An effort will be
made to have the Councils of both cities
turn out in a body, with the two Mayors
and the officers of the Eiver Improvement
Association. Invitations will also be sent
to the members of the Ohio Eiver Commis
sion, some of whom live in Pittsburg, and a
special letter of invitation will be sent
Colonel "William E. Merrill, the, officer
commanding the TJ. S. A. Engineering
Corps on the Ohio river and its tributaries.
Congressmen and State legislators from all
the counties bordering on the Allegheny,
Kiskiminetas and Clarion rivers will be
urged to come.
CROWDS MAY COME.
Excursion rates will be secured on all the
railroads running into the city. It is be
lieved this afiair will bring more people to
the city from e. distance than the dedication
of Davis Island dam, for the reason that in
that instance the benefits "arising from the
completion of the great work were purely
local, while the Herr's island undertaking
is a matter of deep interest everywhere up
the valley of the Allegheny between this
city and New York State. Eepresenling

A prominent steamboat owner said to a
reporter yesterday evening that he would
participate with all his craft in another
"steamboat procession," such as was had at
the Davis Island dam opening. He became
so enthusiastic in the matter that he said he
would communicate with the committee
and suggest an illuminated fleet off the
Point; the duplicating ol the flat-bottom
oil-barrel boats used on the Allegheny
when petroleum was first discovered; and
the bnilding of some of the great Corn
planter Indian rafts of early Allegheny
days. Those he thought would make unique
features of the celebration.
A SSAG HT ALLEGHEST
Just now the Government has run against
ai little snag. The property they bought in
Allegheny to be available for the use of
lock walls will have to encroach upon the
foundations of the retaining wall of a pub
lic street. The United States Government
is therefore preparing a petition which will
be presented to Allegheny City Councils at
their next meeting, asking the vacation of
this street It is hardly probable that Alle
gheny wilL refuse Uncle Sam this little
favor, but the red tape necessary will cause
more or less delay to the great work.
It is not generally known that the West
ern Pennsylvania Eiver Improvement As
sociation has as one of its objects of organi
sation a far grander scheme than the slack
watering of the Allegheny. Its constitu
tion says the association was organized for
the purpose of "collecting and spreading
information about the improvement of the
great rivers, particularly the Allegheny
river and its tributaries, to a minimum
stage of six feet of water; and also, to secure
the construction of a ship canal from the
Allegheny river to Lake Erie."
Connecting the Allegheny river with
Lake Erie has been pronounced by some
engineers as an Utopian scheme, but oth
ers believe it practicable.

The Mysterious Hancloe of Sin. Ulmer to
- Bedpost Shorter Thau Herself Insane
About a Child's Fntuny,,
A reporter from The DfsPATCH yester
day Went to Beltzhoover boroughTand inves
tigated the case of the supposed suicide,
Mrs. Amelia Ulmer, whose body, was found
hanging to a very short bedpost; last Mon
day night. It was stated ,ia an afternoon
japer on Friday that there Vere rumors of
foul play, and that the circumstances sur
rounding the death were at variance with
the verdict of the Coroner's jury.
The reporter yesterday visited the house
formerly occupied by the Ulmer family. It
was closed and locked up, and Mr. TJlmer
had removed to McDonald station, where he
is working. The neighbors were, inter-i
viewed, and the general impression is that
it was a clear case of suicide in a fit of tem
porary insanity. Mrs. Wesslaiger, a step
sister of Mr. Ulmer, and who had been at
tending the woman during her illness, said:
"I was probably the last person that saw
Mrs. Ulmer alive. I was at the house all
evening, and left about 8:30 o'clock. When
I leit her Mrs. Ulmer was in bed, and I
thought she acted strangely at the time. She
was dressed in a black overdress and had a
sack over the dress. I asked her why she
had attired herself in this way, and she
made an unintelligible reply. In the after
noon she said to me: 'I- feel that I am not
long for this world. I am not right (mean
ing that she was out of her mind).' She
talked incoherently, and before I went home
I made her promise that she would try to go
Mrs. Colligan, who lives opposite the
house where the tragedy occurred, said: "I
do not think there is the slightest doubt that
the woman banged herself. I was over in her
house about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and
she seemed to be distressed. She was sitting
up at the time, and seemed to be worrying
over the future of her baby. The latter is
only eight weeks old, and the mother had
been ill since its birth. This was her' sev
enth child, and the only one that did not
Mrs. Sheppard, who also lives across from
the Ulmer house, said: "There is a great
amount of talking going on; but I do not
think the trouble in that family amounted
to more than an ordinary spat between man
and wife. Mrs. Ulmer lived a very retired
life, and was not of a neighborly disposition.
She was a good woman, but did not visit
very much. People who knew them say
Mr. Ulmer thought a great deal of his wife'
Squire Barr, of Beltzhoover, scouts at the
idea of foul play. He cited a number of
cases where people had hanged themselves
to projections lower than an ordinary "bed
post. He said that when he cut the body
down Mrs. Ulmer's knees were bent and
touched the floor. The position of the body
showed that she had died of strangula
tion. Undertaker Vierheller, however, sticks to
the belief that the bedpost was not high
enough for the woman to hang herself.
THEY ARE GROUNDLESS.
Mr. B. F. Joues Denies the Charges Against
the Mononsahela Water Company The
Answer, to be Filed Terr Shortly.
""Hon. B. F. Jones was interviewed at his
home on Irwin avenue, Allegheny, last
evening in regard to the filing of an answer
to the bill in equity against the Mononga
hela Water Company, in which Mr. Jones
is one of the chief defendants, and H. Sel
lers McKee is .the principal prosecutor.
The charge made is that of watering the
stock, and absorbing enough thereof to
make a difference of $115,000.
Mr. Jones said he had only just returned
to the city, and, although he had noticed
the bill lying on his table, he had not yet
had time to read it over. As the writ is
against the water company, Messrs. Knox
& Eeed, its attorneys, will prepare an an
swer to the bill. .
Mr. Jones said that the charges amounted
to nothing, and that they were entirely with

spur of the moment.
The answer will consist of a general de
nial of all the charges made in the bill. Mr.
Jones stated that he did not know when it
would be filed. He is the principal stock

A NEW CAR LIGHTER.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Experimenting;
The Pennsylvania Eailroad is experi
menting with a new system of car lighting,
which will probably supersede the gaslights
now used on all its trains. For the past
few days there has been a car lying in the
Union depot yards which has been fitted up
with the appliances to make the light, and
an instructor has been explaining it to the
trainmen and others. The car is local coach
No. 969, an d will remain at the Union
station for several days yet.
The new light is called the Carhurreter
system of lighting and is a mixture of gaso
line and coal gas. It makes a blue flame
'and its brilliancy is said to be greater than
that of an electric light. The fluid or gas,
as it may be called, is stored in the tank
underneath the car, and when the cylinder
is charged the power generated will last for
a week without having to be renewed. If
the experiment is successful the new system
will be placed upon all the cars.

Farmers to Ship But One-FourtL of
Their Usual Supply To-Morrow,
TO MEET A THREATENED BOYCOTT.
-Dealers of the Two Cities Not let Fright
ened Into Defeat.
HOW THE HERRI WAR IS PROGRESSING
The merry milk war goes on. A number
of additional farmers yesterday signed the
agreement of the Milk Producers' Union of
"Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio,
and are now ready to turn all their product
over to F. O. Eeed, the union's agent. He
is ready in turn to dispense the household
beverage to retail dealers, A new phase of
the movement was announced by Mr. Eeed
last evening. Beginning with .Monday
morning, all dealers who wish to buy their
milk through Mr. Eeed's agency must first
get an order slip at his office, No., 616 Lib
erty street. After that they go to the rail
road depots for th milk. Heretofore the
dealers have been getting their milk at the
trains without any formality.
Although, as agent of the farmers, Mr.
Seed now controls 30,000 gallons of milk
daily, it is not likely that he will allow
more than one-fourth of that quantity to be
shipped into the city to-morrow. He does
not propose to be caught with a big supply
on his hands if the dealers try to boycott
him as some have threatened to do. Should
order slips be given out during the morning
for more than that amount, then a larger
shipment will be quickly telegraphed for.
THE PABMKRS DETERMINED.
The farmers' agent will charge'dealers the
same price to-morrow for the milk .as they
have been paying. After to-morrow prices
are not yet fixed. It is supposed a big cut
Trill be made if the dealers try a counter
movement with milk from Central Ohio.
J. D. Little, Secretary of the Producers'
Union, was rather wrathy yesterday ove
the allegations made by leading members of
the Dealers' Union that the dealers had not
been treated fairly by the producers, and
that the latter had" not given the former
proper opportunities to negotiate with them.
Mr. Little sent for a reporter of The Dis
patch and then replied to this as fol
lows: "It is the dealers who have treated the
producers unfairly, and now they are squeal
ing because we have put them in a hole.
Listen to this: On February 19 a delegate
meeting of the producers was Held, at which
the constitution and by-laws were adopted.
Of this action the dealers were promptly
notified. They sent their executive com
mittee to consult with us on March
12th. They said they would agree to pay
us 12 and 18 cents, declaring that price was
no-object, as they desired our union to be
organized to protect them. They agreed
then to meet us on March 26 to fix matters
up. When we came together at that date
we could get nothing out of them. They
asked that the whole matter be dropped
until October. We then offered to sign
articles with them to go into effect in Oc
tober. They declined, saying they had not
the power to act for all dealers. "We then
moved that the next conference be held on
April 2, and that the dealers' committee
come fully empowered to act. On that date
none of the dealer showed up at
all. Instead, our President received
a postal card from the committee of
dealers explaining that they couldn't
get enough of the dealers together
to transact business. But since we
went right ahead without them they seem to
have been able to get enough together for a
big meeting, at which these, charges of un
fairness were made.
AMONG THE DEALERS.
Two of the largest retail dealers in the
cities yesterday notified Agent Eeed that
they were ready to receive their supply of
milk from him at the farmers' terms, begin
ning to-morrow morning. One is on the
Southside. the other in Allegheny
Mr. William Dilworth, the leader of the
dealers, was met at his store on Pennsylva
nia avenue, Allegheny, last evening, and
during the course of a conversation on the
existing trouble, said:
"I have just returned from the Fort
Wayne depot, where I met a large number
of milk dealers, who were after to-morrow's
supply of milk. The feeling among them
is stronger than it has been at any time
since the commencement of the trouble.
They are confident that in the end they
will be able to supply the most of
their customets' wants. The majority of
mine have said they would be lenient and
allow me a little time in order to meet their
demands. Such is also the case with all the
dealers in the city. I have enough mils: on
hands to furnish all the sick people and
babies among my customers. The remain
der will have to wait
TO-MOBBOW'S SHOET OUTLOOK.
"A milk dealer in Allegheny I will not
give his name wiU go after ,000 gallons of
milk on Sunday, and will, on Monday,
bring it to the city. This milk will be for
Tuesday's supply; so it does not matter if
the milk does not get into the city before
Monday noon. We have enough on hand
at present to supply our customers on Mon
'"'Several farmers have been in the city
and say that the agents ot the creamery
company have misrepresented the facts in
the case, stating that the dealers in the city
sanctioned the movement. Tbey did not
know they were cutting the dealers off with
out any warning. This, they say, was not
fair, and they would not accede to such de
mands. "According to the laws of the association,
shippers who have contracts with dealers
are permitted to fill them. This, in many
cases, will allow the dealers a small supply,
as a number of contracts have been made.
A SLIGHT HITCH INDICATED.
"The shippers do nOt agree with the first
order issued by the association, which is
that one-fourth of the usual amount of milk
shipped be sent to them. This will throw
tbe remainder on their hands, to get rid of
as best they pan. It does not pay them to
make it up into butter at this time of the
year. One said to me that he shipped 55
gallons of milk per day. Tne profits on
three-fourths of the milk will be over $25 in
a week, and he proposes to pay his fine,
which is the amount' just named, and get
out of the association immediately.
"Taking it all in all, I think we can
make a winding fight, and can break the
association, or union, or trust, or whatever
it may be."

A CHARTER REFUSED.
Qlixed Assemblies Cannot Form N. T. A.'s in
the Knights of Labor.
The attempt of the glass packers to form a
National Trades Assembly of the Knights
of Labor, composed of all workers not eli
gible to membership in L. A. 300 and the
A. E. G. W. V., is a failure. It will be re

organization in. the Knights composed of
mixers and teasers, boxmakers, coopers,
teamsters and others employed around a
Master Workman Boss, however, entered
a protest to general headquarters, raising
the point of law that an N. T. A. cannot be
formed of mixed districts. His point, was
sustained. A charter for the new district
The glasspackers have decided, to send a
representative to headquarters and lay their
claims before the General Executive Board.
They say while in the K. of LT they have
induced ten factories to organize; have con
tributed to every strike, and gave money to
men out of employment. They think they
are entitled to something now. One of the
arguments that will be used, it is said, is
that Mr. Eoss protests because the forma
tion of the district will decrease the mem
bership of D. A. 3 about 300.
It is stated that President Campbell, of
the Window Glass Workers Association, is
backing them in the movement to secure a
charter for a National Trades' Assembly.
A number of leading Knights who were
seen yesterday agree with Master Work
man Boss, and say they cannot possibly ob
tain a charter unless one of the laws of the
organization is violated. The packers say
they will withdraw from the Knights and
reorganize the old Glass Packers' Union if
the desired charter is not granted. '

that the puddlers at the Eliza Eurnace are

ROUGHERS AND CATCHERS' JROUBLE.
They Want to Correct Mr. D. B. OllvsVa
Statement Aboat Their Wanes.
A committee ot roughers and catchers
from the Southside called at this office last
evening to make a correction of what Mr.
D. B. Oliver stated in regard to their
wages. They asked that publication be
given to the fact that when Mr. Oliver said
that the roughers and catchers on their ten
inch mills earned 55 17 per day each, he
forgot to mention the fact that they worked
on two furnaces and three men did four
men's work. .The rules of the Amal
gamated Association do not permit this, but
the lawsof the organization are not enforced
in this respect.
The men have .no objection to the wages
paid by the firmbut want part of what is
now paid to the heaters. They say the work
done is harder, in many cases, than getting
out a heat of iron, but the heater gets twice
as much wages as a rougher. They want a
more eaual division of what the mill earns.
The sum and substance of the whole matter
is that it will be a fight between the roughers
and the heaters, with the rollers who hire
them, and the firm who pay the rollers
looking on and saying nothing. This will
be abont the most important matter that
will be brought up at the coming Amalga

THE PRICE OF ICE ADTANCED,
And the Haulers and Helpers Want a Cor
responding Advance In Wages.
The ice crop last winter was unusually
poor, and in consequence prices this season
will be higher than for many years past.
Notice of an advance will not be a great
surprise to consumers, for they have been
expecting to pay more for ice this year than
A meeting of ice dealers was held yester
day afternoon in the SteVenson building, at
which the rates to private dealers were ad
vanced. No advance was made, however,
on carload lots. Cards will be printed con
taining the new schedule of prices and
mailed to consumers this week.
The ice drivers and helpers who belong to
Local Assembly 7182, Knights of Labor, do
not believe an advance is strictly necessary,
particularly with tbe Chautauqua Lake Ice
Company., as the ice crop was as good in
that region as last year. They are willing
to have the rates increased, but they want
a portion of the advance themselves and
have made a demand for more wages. Sev
eral of them stated yesterday that they
would insist on their demands for an ad
vance in wages unless the prices remain the
same as last summer.

In the regular session of the Moot Court,

Common Pleas No. 1, the case of J. Mc

damages, was postponed until next Satur
day as a result of the absence of the at

by the plaintiff's counsel as a point in their
However, the young legal aspirants pres
ent concluded to hold magistrate court and
the case of the Commonwealth vs Jerry

that Ee was a rum "swiller"), was charged
With surreptitiously "nipping" a lead pen
cil from the License Court table, said ar
ticle being the property of E. J. McKenna.
The latter prized it highly from the fact
that his deceased sweetheart had given it
to him. It bore tbe marks of a hungry
schoolgirl, as it was filled with a million
teeth indentations, so characteristic of tbe
studious maiden. It was by these marks
that the purloined article was identified.
At this juncture a street band created a
temporary adjournment of court, as the
judge, attorneys and prisoners all rushed to
the window to listen to the music.
Mr. Goss made a preliminary address in
which he proposed to prove the unqualified
falsity ot the charge against his client.
During his legal harangue the prosecutor,
his attorney and the constable were seen to
flip coins for the drinks and to mutter
quietly, "that's a horse on you!"

took the stand in his own behalf.
He said he was a saloon keeper; a resi

UNEQUAL BATES TURN BUSINESS
From Pittsburg to UTestern Cities Not
Entitled to tl)? Steal.
THIS CITI NOT ONE OF THE FAY0RED
' Mr. Carnegie's letters on the subject of
freight discriminations have awakened great
interest among Pittsburg business men. It
is just possible at movement will be started to
bring such pressure to bear on the Pennsyl
vania road that it will have to reduce its rates.
The woods are full of manufacturers in other
lines, too modest to allow their names to ap
pear in print, who have the same complaidt
to make as Mr. Carnegie. Even the mer-
cnants, me wholesalers in particular, suuer
from the effects of the railroad's discrimina
As a sample of how the railroads turn
away the grain business from- Pittsburg, a
perusal of the following interview from a
member of the Grain and Elour Exchange
will show Said, the modest grain man,
who has a holy horror of seeing his name
in a newspaper:
I am a member of the Pittsburg Exchange,
pay 100 a year for the privilege, and vet I
haven't bought a pound of grain on the floors
of the exchango for a year. Whyr I will tell
you. I eo to the exchange and; learn the price
of corn; say It is 23'oents per bushel. I at Once
telegraph Chicago, Peoria or St. Louis for
prices, and they can furnish it for Id cents per
A customer of mine at West Newton, Johns
town or some other nearby town wants a car
load of corn. Instead of shipping it to him
from Pittsburg, Torderit to be sent direct from
one of these western cities, and the freight Is
not any more than It would cost me to ship this
car from Pittsburg to Johnstown or West
The result Is that I don't keep grain in my
Pittsburg warehouses anymore. This business
which should come from Pittsburg is captured
by these western cities. They have big grain
elevators and warehouses and employ a great
many men, but there 13 nothing of the kind In
Pittsburg. My connection with the Exchange
here doesn't do me any good, but I will stick to
it because sucb an organization is a credit to
the city. Freight discrimination is turning
plenty of grain away from this city.
Here is another sample of bow the roads do
business: I am encaged also In the flour trade.
Punxsutawney is 132 miles from the city and I
want to ship a barrel of flour there. It will
cost me 13 cents per 100 pounds or 28 cents a
barrel to send it from Pittsburg. Buffalo is 223
miles from tbe same place, and the rate from
the former city is only 6 to 7 cents per 100.
FLOUB FBOM BUFFALO.
What do I dor When a customer of mine in
Punxsutawney orders flour I have it shipped
from Buffalo. I save money by the operation,
Pittsburg loses the business and Buffalo gets it.
The fact is that rates are so arranged these
days that a Greensburg merchant can buy a3
cheap in Philadelphia as he can in Pittsburg.
The majority of Johnstown merchants go East
to buy their goods. Cumberland people go to
Baltimore, Youngstown business men to Cin
cinnati and Columbus, and Pittsburg nearer to
these places than any of the cities mentioned
by an iniquitous system ot freight discrimina
tion loses all thisbuslness.
By the way, I have had some experience in
try in e to secure excursion rates for Pittsburg
on different occasions. I know what it is to
wrestle and pray with obstinate passenger men.
I am convinced the day of a l-cent-a-mile rate
for Pittsburg, no matter what the occasion
may be, is past. Other cities can secure these
favors, but not Pittsburg. Baring the late
County Centennial one of the managers of the
Pennsylvania Company told me that if he had
teen in the City at the rime the-1-cent rate for
ISO miles was made he would not have allowed
it. "Pittsburg," said he, "doesn't need any
centennials, expositions or May festivals to
boom its trade."
THETTVOTOU ALL TVAST IT.
"If Pittsburg Is granted any favors then
every little way station holding a picnic will
ask for a contribution and rates;" and then
sinking his voice to a whisper he said: "The
inter-State law forbids such discriminations."
Alas! if the inter-State law could only reach
the unfortunate and helpless shipper In the
State, they wonld rise up and call Senator
Why, the wholesale men in the city had an
awful time to get a 2-cent rate for the retail
merchants within a radius of 20O miles, who
have been Invited to visit the city during April,
beginning on the 22d and continuing until the
end of the week. Tbe Hew England roads,
however, gave tbe Boston merchants a rate of
one fare for the round trip for a similar pur
pose. When the proposition of a 2-cent rate was
flrstmade to the Pittsburg Passenger Agents'
Association the Allegheny Valley, Pennsyl
vania Company lines and the Lake Erie voted
against it, while the B. & O. and the Pittsburg
and Western voted for it. Afterward, when
the rate -was granted, they positively refused
to make the same rate as the New England
roads had for the Boston merchants.
However, a 2-cent-a-mile rate within a radius
of 200 miles pf Pittsburg was never made be
fore, and we have trained one victory at last.
These are only a few instances which show
how Pittsbure business men and manufacturers
suffer at the hands of the railroads.

"Git on board, chillun, dars room for a

We can number our customers by the thou
sands, and withont any exaggeration can
claim double the trade of any retail grocer
in Western Pennsylvania. But this is a
big country and we think we are just com
mencing to get there.
The one object which we always keep in
view is to save money for our oustomers.
We know if we do this they will appreciate
it and return us the favor. We know you
do appreciate it, for in the past two years we
have had to enlarge our store Jwice, and we
are now making a third addition which will
double our capacity.
Our tea department is going to receive
first attention, and Mr. Shaw is to have full
swing here, and he will surprise you all.
Our provision department has been sadly
neglected and we will give more space to it.
O ver half our trade consists of mail orders
shipped to points outside the city, and we
have 4 men constantly packing goods for
shipment. We will make radical changes
here, giving our packers ample room, and
arranging things with special view to the
convenient and rapid handling of goods.
We are all rustlers and we are going to
get there. If you want to save money, come
and go along with us. Send for weekly

It may be stated as a fact that every nerv
ous and chronic' disease, provided there are
no organic changes, is curable. What is
the rationale of treatment? The most suc
cessful specialists jire those who mix in their
treatment plenty of common sense. Nature
cannot be forced, therefore the great aim
should be to assist nature in her struggle
with disease. The essentials- are careful
study1 in adapting mild medicinal agents,
frictions, special water treatment, exercise
and diet. This is only half. We must
have the faithful, persevering and intelli
gent co-operation of our patients. It re
quires time, even with our best assistance,
tor nature to eradicate any chronic disease.
Add patience to the above attributes and
you may he sure of a well marshalled
and effective force; and finally that nature
will lead to almost certain victory. Exer
cise such principles and don't expect mira
cles. Any other treatment is irrational, and
good is not to be hoped from it. Dr. S. O.
Moore, 34 Arch street, Allegheny, Pa., has
given, for 14 years, exclusive attention to

that I was confined to my bed for oyer one
