THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 1898. ROHRBAOU GOT LEFT. Congressman Kulp's Candidate Turned Down For Collector. MAJOR PENMAN WAS NAMED. Lloyd T. Rohrbach of Sunbury, the candidate whom Congressman Kulp expected to land in the office of Internal Revenue Collector for this district, has been turned down and it looks very much as if Senator Quay was a party to it. Major Thomas F. Penman, of Scranton, has been nam ed to succeed Grant Herring, the present collector. Mr. Penman was the immediate predecessor oi Mr. Herring. The office pays about $3,000 a year. Ex-Congre sman Fred C. Leonard, whose name had been connected with the position for some time past, was appointed to the office of U. S. Marshall for the west ern district. The following special sent out from Washington appeared in the Phila delphia Inquirer. "Senators Quay and Penrose were early visitors at the White House Thursday and the nomination of Messrs. Leonard and Penman follow ed as a result of their talk with the President. "It was Senator Quay's original in tention to give the collectorshrp to ™ Mr. Leonard and the Marshalship to Major Penman, but Congressman Council iilduced the Senator to re verse this program. Mr. Connell told the Senator that Major Penman was unwilling to leave Scranton, where he is engaged in the law business. Sena tor Quay consulted with ex-Congress man Leonard who readily agreed to the change." Iron and Steel Outlook. Ik First Week of the New Year Witnesses a |\ Rising Market. The American Manufacturer in its weekly iron and steel trade review on Saturday says: "The iron and steel market in the principal centres starts the new year fairly well. The Eastern market has a better tone than it has had for some weeks past, as New York reports busi ness better and prices steadier. The same centre reports large deliveries of structural material that have been de ferred for some time. "At Philadelphia pig iron purchases are light, but there are big orders " pending. The Bessemer billet market is much stronger, and there are good orders for bars. The year opens well S at Chicago, although the season for stock-taking makes trade rather slow at present. The Western pig iron market was affected to some extent by the weakening of Southern irons, I as some of the smaller producers cut I prices about 50 cents per ton. How jj ever, the demand is good. I "It is stated that the rod output has I been sold up to March. The trade in f bare is fairly good, but Western mills are shading prices somewhat. At Cin cinnati, also, Southern pig iron has weakened, although the general trade at that point is fairly good. There is ■ considerable activity in bars, and ■ large plate and tank orders are ex pected soon. The Louisville market ■ is reported as being rather dull. In the Wheeling district trade remains about as it was, and at Cleveland the pig iron trade is in a waiting condi b tion, although there is considerable | inquiry for Bessemer pig. jA. I "In Pittsburg the new opens p -favorably. There has been no change in prices, except in a few line*, and these have been in the way of ad vances ; but the entire situation is Igood, and there is every indication that an active buying movement may set in at any time." Wanted Only Democrats. A remarkable will is being contest ed in the courts of Bradford county. Geo. N. Wilcox left each of his grand sons SIOOO on condition that they support the Democratic party during life. Failing, the money was left to the granddaughters providing they married loyal Democrats. The will is being contested on the ground that the legacies are a temptation or bribe for the advocacy of a particular politi cal creed contrary to the genius of our Government and institutions.

Among the places where these monuments are to be erected in the Confederate plot in Woodlawn cemetery in Elmira. About 4,000 Confederate prisoners were buried there. Bad Stomachs Must Go. A Swiss doctor has demonstrated that the stomach is a dispensable part of man. He removed the stomach of a woman and she is now pretty well, thank you, much better than she has been for years and steadily advancing to complete health. The tyranny of the stomach is at an end. 11 the stomach offends it may be plucked out and the human system go on as if nothing had hap pened. "If you have a craving for strong drink the gold cure is no long er the efficacious remedy. Just step into a doctor's office and have your stomach removed while you wait. It was doubtless a surprise to the stomach to discover that it was not so warm. It had played the autocrat so long that it never imagined that it was a little thing which could be set aside without serious inconvenience. For uncounted ages it has played the czar and now, with a few strokes of a surgeon's knife, it is deposed from im portance and consigned to rank with the inconsiderable parts of the human body. emancipation from sto machic despotism is due largely to chance. This Swiss doctor slashed oven a woman in adventurous search of what was the matter with her. He found that a tumor had set itself up in busi ness in the stomach. He was a sur geon disposed to see what would hap pen. He promptly removed the affect ed organ and established a coupling which proved that the stomach had ove-rated its consequence. The parent not only lives but is able to do her own housework, a fact which completes the humiliation of the stomach and proves again that pride must have a fall. The stomach has overdone the thing. Its directorship is overthrown. It is no longer neces sary but a luxury, so to speak. It is not essential to life. We need no longer submit to it, but merely toler ate it. So long as it behaves itself it may have a place in our midsts, but as soon as it misbehaves it is oxposed to banishment. If the stomach gets cocky, out with it. The Swiss doctor has delivered the race. Nights Run Down In Health-Constant Pains In Arms and Shoulders- A Valuable Gift-Health, Appetite and Sleep—Paln3 are Cone. "I was run down In health and conld hardly keep on my feet. The least exer tion would cauße palpltatiou and I would feel as though I was being smothered. My nights were sleepless and I folt worse In the morning than when I retired. My liver was out of order and I had constant pains in my arms and shoulders nd numbness in my limbs. I was sometimes dizzy and would fall. My son gave me two bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla and they proved of more value than a very costly gift. In a short time after talcing Hood's Sarsaparilla I had a good appetite, Bleep came back to me and the pains all left me." MRS. ANNIE E. STUTTER, 621 Marietta Ave., Lancaster, Pa.

THE COLUMBIAN, BLOOMSBURG. PA. The great struggle for United States Senator from Ohio is over and Mark Hanna won it. He received votes in the Senate and 56 in the house for the short term, and was elected for the long term by the same vote 73 on joint ballot against 70 tor McKisson. The opposition made a strong fight and had it not been that Hanna was backed by the adminis tration would undoubtedly have won. When the observation is made that worry kills, it is often a matter of wonder as to the actual manner in which death is pronounced by it. Modern science has brought to light nothing more curiously interesting than the fact that worry will most certainly kill, and the way in which it kills is stated to be that worry injures beyond repair certain cells of the brain. The brain being the nutritive centre of the body, the other organs become gradually injured, and when some disease of these organs or com bination of them arises, death finally ensues. Occasional worry of the sys tem the brain can cope with, but the iteration and reiteration of one idea of the disquieting sort, the cells of the brain are certainly not proof against. With all your good resolutions paste this in your hat : "It is not: work but worry that hastens nervous prostra tion." Harper's Bazar.
