From Somervllle, Mass., Boston's wealthy

proof ot tho wonderful medicinal power ot
Palne's celery compound and Its great supe

'Tor nearly a year past I have felt my
self tunning down. .My nervous system
was gradually growing worse; I had slight
symptoms of rheumatism, and was uoubled
a good deal ut times with Insomnia. I felt
that something must bo done, and conclud
ed to use Palne'H celery compound. After
tnc llrst few days' use I began to Impiove,
and I am very much better now. Indeed,
I feel like myself once more, All symp
toms of rheumatism are disappearing, I
can sleep well, my nervous sjsiem Is rap
Idly Impiovlng, and I bellovo u radical euro
is being effected. I'alne's celery compound
Is a splendid remedy, and I can conscien
tiously commend It to the sulterlng In llku

heavy doctors' bills. I have never used a
remedy of any kind thut met Its promises
so well and so leadlly."

Bev. T, V. Mai tin, rector of St. Anne's
church, nt Nashville, gives his people con
fidence in tho great; curative powers of
Palne's celery compound. He says:
"During the Lenten Beason last 5 ear,
which, on account of multiplied services, is
veiy trying nnd laborious to a clergyman, I
became so run down Dint I feared I would
not be able to hold out to the end. Having
seen accounts of tho elllcacy of Palno's eel
ery compound In similar cases. J concluded
to try It. I was soon delighted to find that
It gave mo new vigor, and by the use of
one bottle I was enabled to get thiough
the most laborious part of tho season. In
cluding Holy week and HnatenUy, with
ease and comfort, f utti lliute my relief to
Palne's celerv compound. I keep a hottlu
of It on hand and whenever I have a re.
turn or the feeling of exhaustion from un.
usual labor, I take a few doses, always
with a pleasant sensation of relief,"

Bev Dr. J. V. Hull, or Mountvllle, Is
one ot the best-known ministers in South
eastern Ohio. Mrs. Hall, whose life was
despaired ot, was restored to health by
I'alne's celerv comnound. She writes:
"The grip made a wreck of my natural
good health. I suffered from continual
headache, which nothing relieved, und from
nervousness which prevented sleep and
caused me to have palpitation of the heart
when startled by nny unexpected noise or
sound. I had distressing pains in my
back and side, was constipated, bilious
nnd sallow-complexloned. My pulse was
veiy changeable, sometimes quick and at
others scarcely perceptible, appetite poor,
with a feeling ot languor and weakness
at times almost oveicomlnc me. It seemed
as If every organ In my body was diseased,
and I was In desp ilr of ever being well
again. At times the grave seemed very
near. 1 can never describe my terrible
sufferings, and It would have been .1 great
relief to have exchanged worlds, but like
every mother I would look upon my baby

"Xot having much faith In advertised
medicines, It was with reluctance that I
began to use Palne's celery compound,
but after the first dose I slept well Mv
Improvement was rapid. I took -six bottles
and gained between twenty and twenty
live pounds In weight, and now I am fleshy,
ruddy cheeked nnd clear complexloned,

grand compound has done tor me."

at Boonton, X. J., writes:
"It gives me gieat pleasure to commend
the uso nf Table's celery compound to nil
those who are suffering from nervous
tioublei, I had suffeied for two je.us
with nervous prostration, brought on by
overwoik and excessive study, and during
this time had tried almost everything in
the way of medicine, besides being treated
by an eminent specialist In neivnus dis
eases, but nothing helped me until I used
Palne's celery compound. This rempdv

Mr. Lambert, of Ls'on, moved to re.
commit the bill, limiting the number or

back to the committee of tho whole for

It passed the committee, that nut over

said this bill was changing the practice or
the coin ts which had pi evaded for a third

Mr. Lambert's motion was supported by
Bone or Clark, and Cole or Barton. It was
opposed by -Moore or Saline, Cox or Neo

SHOT WITH wnti:.
The strnngesf Mirglcul Case fiver seen In
11 e York Hospital.
From the New York Becorder
The strangest thing that has come to
light In the Bellevuo hospital since the
finding, a few years ago, of a "el of falie
teeth Imbedded In the heart of .1 woman
who had dlad suddenly, was revealed last
Mondas In nn operation on John Sc.inlon,
of ."? Avenue A.
Scanlon is a machinist. "0 se.us old. In
the emplos of the Hast Bivor Lead Coin
pans', whose works lire nt Fist Nineteenth
street I'm II Saturday he lias had charge
of the machine that makes the wire.
The machine is a steel box. from which
molten metal Is forced thiough an apci
ture or die one-slxtccnth of .111 Inch In dl
amtlei by hydi.iullc pressure of i') tops.
The stream of lend before It reaches Hie
nlr, hardens Into a long, thin wire, which
Is nfternurd wound upon n wheel. At times
the epcrture bei omes clogged and the
stream of lead stops. When this happens
the attendant seizes the wiie In his hands
and sets It going again by a sharp pull.
Scanlon was at work Saturday morning
nnd the machine clogged, the reel went on
turning and broke the wire 01T about ten
Inches rrom the die Scanlon reached over
as usual, caught hold or the wire and gave
It a smart pull. All at once there was .111
explosion in the metal receptacle The
whole machine was enveloped In steam
and Scanlon was knocked senseless. When
he regained consciousness he was In an
ambulance on his wn to Bellevuo The
man's arm. which gave him some pain,
was examined b the doctors, who .s ucl
that his elbow was out or joint. Theie
was a little cut about two Inches long ex
tending across Hie arm about three Inclu
above the wrist, but, under the circum
stances, no .mention was paid to it
The usual practice for putting the elbow
banes back Into place w.is resorted to. bur
the piln in the arm cli I not cease. Suncj.is
morning a more thorough examination was
made, and what was thought to be bits nf
broken bono could be f. It above tho Joints.
It was then decided that Scanlon bad a
compound fracture of tin, upper part of the
bones of the roicarm. and a time was set
for an operation Monday morning.
Scanlon was put under thn Influence nf
ether. Dr. Bathbone, assisted by the house
staff, started the operation. The knife with
which the suigeon began to cut away the
flesh that covered the bones had h irdly
penetrated the skin when It struck against
a foreign body th.it the surgeon's delicate
touch detected to he metal.
Fpon further curling, eleven foet, or,
more exactly, 131 Inches, or lead wire was
brought out. The wiie was coiled and
tangled together and broken Into mans
pieces Part of It was lodged between the
two bones or the rorearm. but most was
Imbedded in tho big muscle there and In
small bits about tho elbow Joint. Scanlon'n
arm was evidently bent when the accident
occurred, nnd tho elbow Joint stopped the
wire which had shot out or the machine
under thu rorto of the explosion und pene
trated the arm where the little cut n.is
round, going on by Its own momentum. The
man Is doing well.

his foot ho does not, however, as Is gener

Tho momentum Is gained by 11 gradual
