According to "The Medical Press and
Circular," of London, a red nose is by
no means a sign ot drunkenness, and is
as common among teetotallers as tip
plers. Indigestion is responsible almost
more than anything else for red noses,
while excessive tea drinking is apt to
play havoc with the oomplexion in gen
eral and with be nose in particular.
Sometimes the congested nose is a sign
of some serious disorder of tbe beart, or
it may point to a sluggish circulation.
The babit of Inhaling cigarette smoke
and pufflng It through tbe nostrils may

clerk, and B. Milton ealmon, lawyer, of
The conference was called ta ordnr Kv
Samuel W. Hoflord, chairman of tbe
iaBi oonierence, ana a temporary organ
ization was made by tbe election of
Geo. P. Boss, chairman, W. A. Erd
man and W. F. HoSord, secretaries.
The temporary organization was later
mado permanent. Candidates for sen
ator were named as follows: Dr. W.
A. Scott, of Lansford, by Eidelstein :
S. W. Hoflord, of Woatherly, by W.
c. xxuuuru ; soon o, cjcnoonover, of
Btroudsourg, by Wallaco ; J. H. Van
Etten, of Milford, by Mitchell ; F. C.
Reicbenbaohor, ot Honesdale, by Rosa.
Tbe first ballot resulted in 3 votes for
nmcuoDDacner, ocoii ana ocnoonover
each two, Uofford and VanEtten each
one. Fifty-two ballots were taken, in.
tereporsed in blocks of ten and fifteen
with fifteen minutes recesses. At tbe
recess following the 52d ballot tbe
Wayno conferees, being under no in
structions except to vote for the man
who tbey thought could win the most
votes in November, decided that the
wayne county candidate could not win
aod that they should turn tbeir votes
oleewhero. Hobs votedapRBMntKT'
bucher on tho S3! and Mth ballots. On
the 55th be ioined Mrnr Alien
Salmon for llofford. Conferee Hof
lord also voted for bis cousin, and then,
to the surprise of all, Eidelstein, who
had stuck faithfully to Dr. Scott,
changed nvor and gave Mr. Hoflord
tba deciding vote. The nomination
was then made unanimous, Mr. Hot
ford thanked tbo conferees in a brief
and eloquent address, lie makes an
excellent appearance, is a good speaker
ana ougui to do a winner. He is com-
missioni-ra clerk and chairman of tbe
Carbon county Republican committee.
Same of tbo Monroe county reporters
are insinuating that Carbon and Waynn
h id made a deal before tbe conference.
This is not truo. It bad been reported
in Honesdale that A. R. Britton. of
Stroudsburg, had been elated for the
nomination, and the Wayne conferrees
knew nothing to tbe contrary until
thoy wero introduced to Mr, Bchoon
uvcr as tbo Monroe candidate.
