.11 In Mnry Ann Crothcrs, Ascd 101
Years, Claims tho Championship.
Philadelphia, Oct. 15. Miss Mary
Ann Crothcrs Is more than 101 years
old, and she objects to having other
people wearing honors which she says
rightfully belong to her. She Is not at
all backward in claiming tho honor
ot being tho 'oldest ojd maid" living.
This honor has been claimed recently
by several aged women, tho oldest of
whom had seen 101 winters and sum
mers, nnd Miss Crothers' championship
claim Is due entirely to this discussion.
"Aunty Crothers," ns she is affection
ately called bv all those who know her,
was born In County Derry, Ireland, on
tho 27th ot August, 1793. The entire
family was remnrkablo for Its long
evity. Her father died at the ago of 92,
her mother at tho ago of 83 years. She
had a brother, "William, the father ot
Samuel Crothers, present member ot
the State Legislature from tho Twenty
sixth district, who also attained a
ripe old age. When Miss Crothcrs was
40 years old she came to America, and
lived for a number of years In this city.
She then moved to Omnha, Neb., with
tho family of Dr. Meredith, returning
to Philadelphia in 1842, and has lived
here ever since. She resides with the
family of Thomas Austin, a nephew,
where, slnco tho death of Mrs. Austin,
nineteen years ngo, Mie has taken a
motherly interest in her threo grand
nieces. A POLITICAL POINTER

COL. ELVERSON RESIGNS.
He No Longer Is Aid on tho Uovcr
Hnrrlsburg, Pa., Oct. 15. Colonel
James Elvorson, Jr., of Philadelphia,
aide-de-camp on General Hastlng's
staff, tendered his resignation today,
and It was not accepted. Tho governor
will not bo In a hurry to fill the vac
ancy. Colonel Elverson Is publisher of
the Philadelphia Inquirer, which has
always been against the executive
It was thought Elverson would re
sign during the combine fight two
years ago, when his newspaper was
pouring hot shot dally into the gover
nor, but the colonel held on, and was
shown the kindest consideration by
his chief. Elvcrson's resignation at
this tlmo Indicates that his paper Is
preparing to make another attack upon
Governor Hastings's administration
should the executive come out for At-,
torney Geneial McCormlck for tho
gubernatorial nomination, which he
will undoubtedly do after the election.

Results of the Tournament Held nt

which constituted the opening day's

centre of tho grounds. Alter 20 birds
were liberated the shooters moved in
to tho adjoining court until each man
had occupied each court and 200 bhds

Tho Secret to Perpetual Life About
To He Discovered.
The celebrated Dr. Vlrchow, of Ber
lin, recently stated his belief that tho
secret of nil diseases Is about to be dis
covered. He believes that all disease
germs can be destroyed, leaving human
life free to continue Indefinitely. That
It Is minute organisms that cause dis
ease; that they can bo destroyed; and,
when destroyed, there will be no dls
ease, and people will continue to live,
If not always, at least to attain great
age, like tho fabled Antediluvians.
In the meantime, however, we have
tho disease germs to cope with tho best
way we can. They attack us morning,
noon nnd night. They are in tho air
we breathe, tho water we drink and
tho food we eat. The only thing we
can do to protect ourselves Is to fortify
tho .system against them. The strength
ening effect of Pe-ru-na is a reliable
protection. Tho disease germs can not
exist In tho system when Pe-ru-na is
taken. It is a perfect remedy for all
low, weak states of the system, and
brings vitality nnd strength of youth.
If tho mucous membranes are healthy
the disease germs can not enter the
system. Po-ru-na produces clean,
healthy, normal mucous membranes.

Our new, enlarged quarters enable us to show
a much larger and more extensive line of Blankets

well stuffed, soft, fluffy, handsomely made of choice
silkoline and knotted with worsted.
