SusiMichannn County Nows Notes,
Special to tho Scranton Tribune.
Susquehnnnn, ra Oct. 12. Two Sus
quehanna fishermen were on Saturday
spearing fish In the Susquehanna nenr
the Cascade. When returning they saw
in the water a large turtle of the snap
ping variety. In an Instant tho spear
went down, and between the prongs,
when It came up, wns the neck of tha
turtle. The reptile was lifted out on
the bank, and tho spear nrossed down
in tho soil. Tho head was then cut
off nnd left fast to th'a spear, which
remained sticking; in tho ground until
morning, the turtle being taken home.
Next morning tho spear was wanted,
and one of the youngsters about tha
farm 'brought it in, beating It aloft
with the hiad of the turtle utill re
maining between tho prongs. It was
Bet down In the door yard and re
mained there until nearly noon. About
that time an Inquisitive chicken began
picking at tho head of the turtK. Sud
denly the mouth opened and again
clos d, and between the Jaws was the
head of the Inquiring chicken. It was
evening before the strength had left
the Jaws of tho turtle sufficiently to al
low tho chicken's release. The chicken's
head had b.-en crushed, and tho poor,
little fellow was dead. It is probably
the most remarkable case on record,
where gangllac motion has been re
tained for nearly twenty-four hours.

TO CURE NERVOUS DYSPEPSIA.
To flnln Fleihi to Sleep Well, to Know

Interesting Uxperlence of an Indianapolis
No trouble Is more common or more
misunderstood than nervous dyspepsia.
People having It think that their nerves
are to blame nnd are surprised that
they aro not cured by nervo medicine
and spring remedies: tho real seat of
the mischief is lost sight of; the stom
ach is tho organ to bo looked after.
NcrvouB dyspeptics often do not have
any pain whatever In the stomach, nor
perhaps any of the usual symptoms of
stomach weakness. Nervous dyspep
sia shows Itself not In tho stomach bo
much as In nearly every other organ;
In some cases the heart palpitates and
Is Irregular; In others the kidneys are
affected; In others tho bowels aro con
stipated, with headaches; still others
nre troubled with loss of (lesh and ap
petite, with accumulation of gas, sour
risings and heartburn.
Mr. A. W. Sharper, of No. 61 Iros
pect St., Indianapolis, Ind., writes as
follows: "A motive of pure gratitude
prompts me to write these few lines
regarding the new and valuable medi
cine. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I
have been a sufferer from nervous dys
pepsia for the last four years; havo
used various patent medicines and
other remedies without any favorable
result. They sometimes gave tempor
ary relief until the effects of the medi
cine wore off. I attributed this to my
.sedentary habits, being a bookkeeper
with little physical exercise, but I am
glad to state that the tablets have
overcome all these obstacles, for I havo
gained In flesh, sleep better, and am
better In every way. The above is
written not for notoriety, but Is based
on actual fact."
A. W. Sharper,
CI Prospect St., Indianapolis, Ind.
It is safe to say that Stuart's Dys
pesla Tablets will cure any stomach
weokneas or disease except cancer of
stomach. They cure sour stomach, gas,
loss of flesh and nppetlte, sleepless
ness, palpitation, heartburn, constipa

SNAKE KILLS A COW.
On a farm belonging to a Starrucca
man a cow was noticed making re
peated and furious charges at a dense
thicket. An Investigation by tho
owner showed that she was fighting a
big black snake and trying to stamp
It to death with her forefeet. Tho
thicket was an isolated clump of lau
rels, and tho snake did not seem dis
posed to leave It and trust its life to
the open country. Finally the cow
lowered her head and attempted to
Impale the snake on her horns. In an
Instant the snake sprang on the cow's
head and colled itself about her horns.
The cow was dazed for an instant and
then set off on a run, occasionally
kneeling to rub herself against the
ground, but sho was unable to rid her
self of her enemy. The cow finally
seemed to realize that all her efforts
were useless, and set off at a full galop.
The men on tho farm made an effort
to follow her nnd turn her back. When
cornered she would charge everything
in sight. Occasionally the snake would
half untwist itself and its head would
play before the cow's 'eyes. On these
occasions the poor animal would bel
low with terror and go backward to
escape from the snake. Finally the
poor brute dropped from sheer exhaus
tion and panted out her life. The snako
was Immediately dispatched, and on
being measured was found to be six
feet In length.
