THE SOKANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 16. 189T.

The members of tho Country flu)) nro
Invited by tho Wyoming Valley Coun
try club to be lirescnt nt tho toiirnn
ment this afternoon, which will bo a
most lntcrestinc event. The personnel
of our tenm will bo changed by tho
substitution of Cnptaln Watklns, who
was unable to piny last week. Of this

The contest nt the Country club on Sat
urday will draw a largo crowd from Her.in.
ton, und of course tho Wllkes-Uurreans
will turn out In forcu too. It promises to
bo a brilliant gathering, Tho Scrantnn
j)laycrs will bo entertained at lunch by
tho Wllkcs-Uarro team and tliero is talk of
fdving them a supper a'so afterward. Tho
visitors will bo received by a eommlttco
ut tlic club house, and tho Intention 1b to
extend ns far as possible the courtesies
that niado tho visit of tho Wllkes-Uarrc-nns
to Scranton last week so pleasant.
Though Scranton and Wllkts-Uarre may
never mix m a gcnulno social sympathy,
yet there Is no reason why tho local
Country club peoplo should not exert
themselves to do what they can In tho
way of courtesies. And that they will do
no remain a foregone conclusion. Tho la
tiles' tournament handicap comes oft early
in November, and there will ben largo en
try list. Tho fact of tho handicap gives
nil a fair chance, and tho friends of all
those who play will rally and mako tlio
tournament ono of the greatest Interest.
Tho Country club has never been o pop
ular in Its history as during the past tow
weeks. The weather with tho exception
of a few days, has been perfect for colling,
nnd every member who could do so has
been availing him or herself of tho oppor
tunity to play the game. As a result a
number of splendid contests have taken
dace, especially among itho lady members,
many of whom nro becoming expert golr
cts. Hiss Eleanor Anderson, Seranton's
crack player, has been on tho links sev
eral times recently and has repeatedly
played in tho course in tho sixties. Sov-t-ral
tennis courts have been laid out nnd
this sport will rceeivo more attention
In tho future. The question of having a
toboggan slide has been iigl'ated by a
nun.ber of tho club members. The idea is
a splen lid one, for nothing oonlu be mora
pleasurable Minn a lino coast (i.irlng tho
coming winter evenings, followed up ry a
chut about the cozy log fireplace and per
chance a chicken and wnllle supper. The
thing is feasible and could cn"y become
ti cinalnty if the proper authorities take
tho matter In hand.
The result of the golf tnurmmeiit with
Scranton last Saturday on the grounds of
tho latter, was in a number of Instances
n surprise. A number of WilUea-Harro
people went iwi to sco th? spor but 'f
t'K-y had known in advance about tho
eU-3 of the score they might have preferred
to remain at home. It was thought that
v it'i fair good fortune .lo'insou a.nd
Woodruff might hold down Seranton's
two cracks and that the others on tho
Wllkes-Uarro team would do uu their
men in good shape. Hut while the two
mentioned fulfilled expectation, Johnson
did more than this by way for he tied tho
redoubtable Huntington, the center and
left wings had an off day. Tho captain
as not playing in form and ho had
trouble on the putting greens that kept his
n-ore down. It was more this than Simp
son's good playing that did tho trick, for
both got Into nbout all the trouble that
tho course affords, nnd this is a good
l.ovcland carried off tho honors of tho
day with Johnson. Loveland went at tho
Kame In his earnest and methodical way,
find with tho utmost nonchalance ho pro
ceeded to cut down the record of tho new
course by making It In forty-one. At tho
closo of the match ha had five up on his
opponent. This was a great afternoon's
work. Hut It was tho only balance on tho
right side of tho account that Wilkes
Ilarre could boast.
As to the others not herelnbeforo men
tioned, they had a rather hard time of it.
lilllman was In troublo on tho putting
greens and ho had tho worst downfall of
tho afternoon, being1 put under by ten
holes. Hut he will do better than thi3 In
the next match, for ho Is a. bteady player
nnd not at all likely to go to pieces at crlt
leal points. Chato was not up to the
promise ho had shown In the local match
es, but it appeared to be in his case simply
n enso of off day.
Hut tho prospect ahead for tho match
for Saturday next Is better and moro
hopeful. On their own ground tho Wilkes,
liarro players will havo a considerable ad
vantage. Their custom has been tho clay
putting greens and this It is thought will
be a greater disadvantage to tho visitors
than were tho turf greens of tho Scran
ton course to tho Wilkes-Harro players.
At any rate tho experienco of the last
match of tho spring series would seem to
confirm this view. Hut there Is no doubt,
as ono of tho Scranton team remarked
after tho match of Saturday last, that
Scranton has ono leg of tho cup pretty
They aro very confident. After tho Sat
urday's match Captain Watklns stated
that he thought they could easily win
flown here I oxt Saturday. Ho was asked
what ho meant by easily nnd ho replied
that they v ould win at least ten holes up.
He wrs among members of his own tenm
nnd bo may have made this statement to
Infuse some confidence Into them. Hut nt
Buy rate a bet was risked and made on tho
score of ten holes up a dozen golf balls.
And the Wllkcs-Barrean took another bet
at even terms on tho result. That Is, that
the Scranton team w.ll not win.

BRICKS OF STRAW.
Mixed with Tnr mid Formed Into
Cubes Under Pressure.
A Polish newspaper announces anew
Invention made by a Warsaw engineer,
who proposed to the city authorities a
qulto original material for street pav
ing. He uses cubes of compressed straw
Instead ot the wooden blocks used In
some other European countries. The
manufacture of theso straw cubes Is
carried on nccordlng to a peculiar pro
cess. Straw is cut in pieces of a ccr
taln length, impregnated with a lluld,
tho composition of which Is a secret of
tho Inventor, and then pressed In
blocks. Tho Inventor buys up straw in
bales, binds them closely together
with wlro nnd then Immerses tho en
tire bundle Into a hot solution, the
smell of which indicates that several
materials like pitch, rosin, tar and
others of tho samo kind form part of
tho mixture. These bundles of straw
remain for a certain length of tlmo
In the solution and are then subjected
to heavy pressure In a machine, which
they leave In the shape of ready cubes.
According to tho Inventor this paving
material Is cheaper than wood, but
more durable and stronger, and at tho
same tlmo more clastic.
From tho Cloveland Plain Dealer.
"Say, Skotehy, my boy, I don't want to

ADVICE TO THE W. C. T. 0.
Physical Culture Lecturer Endorses
Paine's Celery Compound,
Miss Lucy H, Hitchcock, lecturer,
department of physical culture, Wo
man's Christian Temperance Union,
Vermont, wrote on May 10, last:
"It affords mo pleasure to add my
testimony with others regarding the
healing effects of Paine's celery com
pound upon an exhausted nervous sys
tem." Aug. 12, 1S97, she wrote: "As a rule
I do not endorse medicines, but I be
lieve Paine's celery compound to be of
a different order 'from the ordinary
medicines. Facts cannot be disputed.
I havo derived so much benefit from
the compound that I am glad to heart
ily recommend it, hoping others simi
larly allllcted may bo relieved. Any
medicine that wlllrelleve suffering hu
manity is a blessing to the world."
A blessing to the world!
Paine's celery compound has been
proven to be the one great remedy that
really makes people well. This esti
mable woman, whose Christian work Is
earnestly directed toward tho better
ment of others, and whoso eminence
in tho W. C. T. U. makes her advice of
great value, plainly indorses Paine's
The amount of poor health on every
hand Is something shocking to every
one who stops to think. Hundreds of
men and women In every neighbor
hood aro today carrying about with
them a needless load of ailments that
a thorough refreshing of their nerves,
a purifying of their blood, more sleep
and more regularity In tho bodily func
tions would completely do away with.
Paine's celery compound will do all this
for sick anel ailing men and women.

other remedies; Paine's celery com
pound Is best known from the mouths
of men and women whom It has made
well they are In every city, town and
village In the country.
No ono can pass the newspaper bul
letins without being reminded by how
slight a thread the best of men hold on
to life. The slight ups and downs In
health from which people recover make
them forget that there Is a limit to
the body's elasticity and endurance.
The habitually exhausted nervous sys
tem at last loses Its power of recovery
and offers no resistance to disease.
"Prevent disease," is tho watchword
of the best medical thought of today.
Careful men nnd women do not wait
until they aro Hat on their backs as
people once did. Tho more intelligent
part of every community has found out
tho Inestimable benefit to bo derived
from Paine's celery compound, when
one Is worn out, nerve-tired and "out-of-sorts."
Tho little ills, tho beginning of neu
ralgia and rheumatism, the "all-gone"
and tired feelings show the Immediate
need of purifying tho blood and re
freshing the nerves. The direct nnd
energetic way Paine's celery compound1
overcomes sick and nervous headaches,
dyspepsia and heart troubles, as It does
all other nervous disorders, has com-j
polled the admiration of the medical
world from tho start.
Heartaches, rheumatism, neuralgia,
lifeless feelings, and debility cannot
persist when Intelligently mot and cor
rected by this greatest of nerve nnd
brain strengthened. No remedy over,
kept the confidence of so largo a body
of Inquiring men and women. Try !
