THE SOBANTON TRIBUNE-THURSDAY MORNINU-. AUGUST 5. 18'JT.
CURIOUS WINE CAVE.
lias Done Much Damage la (tic Property
of Jacob Berber,, of 2902
A mine cave under the property of
Jneoh Farber of 2902 Frlnk Btreet, was
loportcd In Monday's Issue of The Trib
une. Yesterday a Tribune reporter vis
ited tlio scene of the cave. The Farber
property Is on tlio West mountuln
where thi vein Giant upwards and crop
out. The (list hole has Increased In
Flze to about 40 feet across nnd elgh't
feet away Is another hole, which meas
ures about 20 feet acros3. They are
unusually deep on account o the
pitching vein below.
Sir. Farber stated that a small set
tling appeared In his garden about two
weeks, ago, but the heavy rains of last
week had caused the big caving. As
near as can bo judged from the outside
each hole locates the face of a "cham
ber" worked on the pitch In the Bin
vein which "cions out" at this point.
Those chambers are connected with the
1'ilce shaft woiklnas.
.Allowing for pillars, one chamber
would come -Just underneath the rear
foundation wall of the house and the
next would take his front fence and
the roadbed of Frlnk street, should oth
er caves occur.
Mr. F.uber owns nearly an aero of
land and the double frame dwelling,
one side of which he occupies himself.
The loss of garden produce and fruit
trees, vines, etc., alone amount to sev
eral hundred dollars. The remainder
of his plot Indicates his Industry and
pride In cultivating his land. Here nnd
there fruit rees ha.ni; full with ripe
Xiult and his grape vines will yield a,
great quantity of beautiful fruit. Mr.
Faiber sold a property on Swetlnnd
street and purchased his presnt prop
city nbout a year ago. He has report
ed the trouble to the Delaware, Lacka
wanna and AVestern company ofllelals.

Thcro nro two kinds of babies in tho

Tho first kind of babies ntarvo because
their stomachs are loo weak to digest tho

the other kind nro overfed with the result
that the delicate stomach nnd Intestines
are Inflamed nnd ns every mother knows,
thousands of Infanta dlo yearly when
warm weather begins, from stomach and
Opiates, soothing syrup and cathartics,
however mild, nro not what is demanded,
Go to tho root of tho trouble, assist the
child's digestion, give the llttlo stomach

promptly digest Its food and tho llttlo
ono will thrive and grow and gladden tho

Is only necessary to give in n pleasant

no so-called drugs, but are composed of
pepsin, pure aseptic, fruit acids, starch
digestives and aro put up in lozenge
form, with sugar of milk, very pleasant
to tho tasto and havo been used for years
as tho safest, best remedy for any form
of Indigestion nnd stomach troubles In
adults, but recently many remnrkablo
cures havo been mado tn tho cases of
weakly babies who failed to grow and
thrive ns they should.
A Buffalo mother a short tlmo ago who
despaired of the life of her babe was so
delighted with tho results from giving
the child these tablets that she went be
fore tho notnry public of Eric Co., N. Y.,
and made the following nflldavlt:
Gentlemen: Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
were recommended to mo for my two
months old baby, which was sick and
puny and tho doctors said was suffering
from Indigestion. I took the child to the
hospltnl, but there found no relief. A
friend mentioned the Stuart Tablets and
I procured a box from my druggist and
used only tho large sweet lozenges In tho
box and was delighted to llnd they wero
Just the thing for my baby,

Dyspepsia Tablets saved my child's life.
