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.

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

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."
