tErECIAL TELEGRAM TO TIl DISPATCH.1
rnxxsuTAw-NEr, April 8. The duck
itonn that fell upon the plains of Pnnxsu
tawney was a great deal more extensive
than was at first supposed. It was a ver
itable deluge of ducks. Everybody ad
mitted that they never saw anything ap
proaching it. Mahoning creek and all its
tributaries within a radius of ten miles
were literally swarming with wild ducks
and geese of every species and variety.
A person who did not witness it could
have no conception of the immensity of the
flock. There were thousands of them. The
night being dark and stormy and the snow
falling fast, tho birds were attracted by toe
numerous lights of the coko ovens surrounding
Punxsutawney, and came down. Hundreds of
the unlucky fowls flew too close to the mouths
of the ovens, got their wmss singed and
dropped into the furnaces like moths into the
nanus of a torchl The Hungarians and Ital
ians got out their clubs and killed ban-els of
the birds. The next morning great numbers
of wild ducks and geese were found in. the
Fnow and captured, and when the citizens of
Punxsutawney saw that Mahoning creek was a
living mass of wild fowl, every man who could
buy or borrow a gun was oat shooting ducks.
The banks were strewn with dead fowls, and
everybody was possessed with a fiendish desire
to kill. John W. Barr, son of the proprietor of
the City Hotel, shot and bagged 116 ducks. A
hundred others killed from SO to 40 each. No
less than 50 ducks and geese were caught alive.
.Everybody seemed to go wild over the affair
and all business was suspended for the day.
The banks of the creek for ten miles were
lined with sportsmen. It is safe to say that
2,000 men were out hunting ducks, and it
would probablv not be an exaggeration to say
that 10,000 ducks were slain that day.
It was a wanton, barbarous slaughter of In
nocent creatures, for nearly all admitted that
the birds were a very inferior article of food.
This horde of ducks and geese was evidently
migrating from the South to the great lakes,
when the storm caught them and forced them
to descend. Such a deluge of ducks has never
been known before and may never occur again.
BEN CLAKK'S DEFENSE.
The Accused Bases Ilis Dopes on His Yonng
rSPECIAI. TXLEGIU1I TO TITS DISPATCH.!
"Watxesbubg, April 8. The testimony in
the Ben Clark murder trial was concluded this
eenicg. The Commonwealth closed its side
with the statement made by the prisoner some
months ago, which indicated a knowledge at
least of the crime. Evidence was also offered
to show that this statement was entirely volun
tary on the part of the prisoner, he having
been warned that it might be used against him.
The statement was read to the jury after a
lengthy legal battle. The defense produced
but four witnesses, and tbeir examination was
They depended solely upon the testimony of
one witness, the defendant's wife, at the time
of the crime Miss Ella Meredith, and making
her home with the Clarks. She testified that
she and a daft brother of the defendant were
in a cornfield with him during the forenoon on
which the murder was committed. Clark's
wite is quite young, and could not at that time
have been over 15 years of age. The case will
probably go to the jury to-morrow.

HEALING WITHOUT MEDICINE !
The Grand Opera House Filled
""" With People.
A MEDICAL WONDER.
The Interest manifested by invalids of every
description in the public healing of the sick at
the 3 rand Opera House every morning from 10
to U o'clock by Dr. Smith, seems to be increas
ing. The Opera House is filled to overflowing
every morning with Invalids from all parts of
the country and city who are suffering from all
manner of complaints, eagerly waiting for an
opportunity to receive a magnetic treatment
from Dr. Smith. That this man is endowed
with a strange and mysterious gift to heal dis
eases there can be no possible doubt. Tho
many wonderful cures he performs simply by
laying his hands upon the invalid is truly mar
velous. Scores of helpless invalids are carried
upon the stage, and after receiving a magnetic
treatment of not more than five minutes' dura
tion, get uo, walk around the platform and de
clare to the audience that they are entirely
well. Dr. Smith Is a thoroughly educated phy
sicianand surgeon, and performs all operations
known to surgery; be cordially invites both
the sick and the well to go to the Grand Opera
House and witness his many wonderful cures.
This morning a man went upon the stage who
had been a helpless invalid for four vears, suf
ferin from rheumatism in his back and lees.
He was so lame that be was obliged to walk
with crutches and could not stand alone with
out them. In five minutes bo was running
around the platform with his crutches over his
shoulder, as well as he ever was in his life.
Another gentleman who suffered from a lame
shoulder and nho had not been able to put on
bis coat without help in five years, wascuredin
less than five minutes. A lady who bad been deaf
five years was made to hear a whisper. A lady
suffering from rheumatic headache was re
lieved of all pain in a few moments' time.
These wonderful cures were witnessed by an
audience of more than 1,000 people. Dr. Smith
will treat the sick every morning this week at
the Grand Opera House from 10 to II o'clock
free of charge: everybody is invited to attend
and listen to the lecture and witness the cures.
The Doctor is located at 502 Penn avenue,
where be may be consulted free from 9 a L
until'r. M. The Doctor will also give a free
lecture to ladies" next Sunday afternoon at 2
o'clock in the Grand Opera House. This lec

ever given in Pittsburg. Every lady should

Ceuld Not Have Drawn a Bigger Crowd of People Nir
Occasioned a More Complete Series of Surprises'
Than Were Occasioned This Morning at Gusky's
First great Monday's sale 6f Men's and Boys' Suits held to-day. So
great was the business. So phenomenal the rush that Gusky's have
determined to continue this sale all this week. Now let us give you.
,a word of warning! You know that to be forewarned is to be fore
armed. A mad dog will bite anybody so will the clothing sharks,
curbstone dealers, petty dives and brainless imitators. Give 'em a
chancer and they will bite your pocketbook clear through the mid
dle; and worse' yet, they will lie to you in every way they can to in
duce you to buy their old shop-worn and shoddy goods. They will
advertise "new goods" when they have not received a single fresh
article; they will claim that their "goods are the best" when in
reality they are shop-worn, threadbare garments left over from past
seasons, and they won't hesitate to declare their prices "the lowest,"
when it is as true as truth itself that Gusky's always have and always
will undersell them all. Keep your eye on these imitators; watch
their advertisements, and you will see our predictions and assertions
are well founded. But let them talk and blow as they please;
Gusky's are far above and beyond all would-be competitors. From
"Chronicle Telegraph" of Monday, April 8, 1889.
