"The Heart of Chicago," which
was produced at the Grand last night
to an enthusiastic audience, is certain
ly the masterpiece of its author.
Lincoln J. Carter, who also wrote and
staged "The Fast Mail," "The Tor
nado" and other successful plays.
With the skill ol a true playwright he
has woven a strong vein of comedy
into what is essentially a melodrama,
and he has mounted it with magnifi
cent special scenery and properties.
All that remained to insure its succesi
was a competent cast and it is but
necessary to add that the company is
one of the strongest ever appearing in
one of Carter's productions. The ex
citing climaxes were applauded to the
echo last night, and the curtain went
up after each act. The specialties,
including a novel roller skating act,
were very pleasing. "The Heart of
Chicago" will be on the bpards dur
ing the remainder of the week with
Saturday matinee, and deserves crowd
ed houses at each performance.

THE COLUMBIAN. BLOOMSBURG, PA.
Falsehood Rebuked.
Communicated.
The editor of the Sentinel in last
week's issue tries to make the voters of
Bloom Poor District believe that Mr.
Hagenbuch and I tried to rob the
district. I admit doing several days
carpenter work for the district at the
same wages I received from other
parties. At the auditors' settlement
tbe auditors refused to allow me any
pay because the law did not allow a
director to furnish work or material
for the district, whereupon they sur
charged Mr. O. T. Wilson with
several loads of manure he sold the
district. I held that the district re
ceived value for my labor also for the
manure, therefore Mr Wilson and I
were entitled to our pay.
Mr. Vanderslice being a warm
friend of Mr. Wilson's and an enemy
of mine never says a word about him
but charges me with robbing and de
frauding the district, which he knows
is not true.
It will be interesting for the dear
tax payers of the county to watch and
see what the Sentinel has to say about
the surcharges of Mr. Krickbaum as
County Commissioner. No doubt it
will make a difference whose ox is
gored. I hope the honest Sentinel
will have the courage to hew to the
line and let the chips tall where they
belong. Tne Superior Court has just
handed down an opinion affirming the
lower Court in the Sheriff McHenry
Janitor case whereby Commissioner
Krickbaum puts the dear taxpayers of
the county in the hole for several hun
dred dollars. No doubt the Sentinel
will now jump on the neck of the
Superior Court with both feet like it
always does on our County Court for
doing its duty.
Mr. Vanderslice also says that the
C. A. Kleim and appeal case were
settled on record against the wish of
Kleim, Wilson and himself as Atty.
for Kleim who wanted Mr. Hagen
buch and me to consent to settle the
same, to which we consented to save
costs for the district. If the settle
ments are not satisfactory I am will
ing io have satisfaction stricken off
and both cases opened.
The Sentinel also says that Mr.
Hagenbuch and I were elected last
week with beer and boodle. This is
another baie faced falsehood. The
only beer and boodle that I heard of
being used was handled by the Editor
and Proprietor of the Sentinel up in
Sugailoaf township the day before the
election electioneering for the Prohi
bition candidate.
The instructions were given to
vocers to vote for Cox in Greenwood
and Sugailoaf and for Sharpless in
Scott and Bloom, but the voters in
Bloom said "nit" we do not en
dorse rump conventions presided over
by Vanderslice and Wilson and any
person who accepts a nomination at
their hands we will say to him what
the owner said to his Billy sheep
"you got in bad company and we will
let you slide."
It is not too late for the Sentinel to
profit by the Resolution which I pie
sented and was passed in a Democra
tic caucus several years ago denounc
ing the Sentinel's course in reducing
the Democratic majorities in the
County.
M. H. RHODES.
A meeting was held in the Y. M.
C. A. Hall, Monday evening, and pre
liminary steps taken to produce the
cantatta, "The Shepherd Boy," in the
near future. An effort will be made
to have a chorus of eighty voices. It
will be rendered under the direction
of F. N. Turner.
The O. U. A. M. held a smoker in
their hall in the Lockard building,
Tuesday evening. There was quite
a large attendance of members. The
music was furnished by Hower, Goss
and Wall. All had a good time.
Persistent
Coughs
A oough which seems to hang
on in spite of all the remedies which
you have applied certainly needs
energetic and sensible treatment.
Foa twenty-five years that stand
ard preparation of cod-liver oil,
SCOTT'S
EMULSION
has proved its effectiveness in cur
ing the trying affections of the
throat and lungs, and this is the
reason whyi the cod-liver oil, par
tially digested, strengthens and
f vitalizes the whole sys
tem; the hypophosphites
act as a tonic to the
mind and nerves, and the
glycerine soothes and
neals the irritation. Can
you think of any combi
nation so effective as this?
Be eure you get SCOTT'S Emulsion. See that the
man and fish are on the wrapper.

Mrs. Hoffman Describes How She
Wrote to Mrs. Pinkh4m for
Advice, and Is Now Well.
DEAR MRS. PINKHAM: —Before using
your Vegetable Compound I was a
great sufferer. I have been sick for
months, was troubled with severe pain
in both Bides of abdomen, sore feeling
—in lower part of bow
els, also suffered
<, with dizziness,
could not sleep.
1 etter describ
replied tell
followed your direc
tions, and cannot praise your medicine
enough for what it has done for me.
Many thanks to you for your advice.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound has cured me, and I will recom
mend it to my friends. —Mrs. FLORENCE
R. HOFFMAN, 512 Roland St., Canton, O.
The condition described by Mrs. Hoff
man will appeal to many women, yet
lots of sick women struggle on with
their daily tasks disregarding the
urgent warnings until overtaken by
actual collapse.
The present Mrs. Pinkham's experi
ence in treating female ills is unparal
leled, for years she worked side by side
with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and for
sometimes past has had sole charge
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
as many as a hundred thousand ailing
women during a single year.

The Oatawissa Road-
Reading Company Sending Traffic Over
That Branch--Shamokin Division Suffers.
The Catawissa branch of the P. &
R. railway is rapidly swallowing up all
the traffic heretofore transported over
the Shamokin division, and this form
er important branch is rapidly becom
ing a mere side issue in the great
Reading system. The latest rumor,
and an apparently well founded one,
is that within a very short time the
local freights now running between
Tamaqua and Newberry will be great
ly reduced. Instead of six, as now,
there will be but two after this week.
A change will be made in the schedule
at that time. This will necessitate the
laying off of several crews. These
changes may be made this week. It
is also said that the Philadelphia and
Reading Railway Company will begin
the work ofdouDle tracking their road
from Tamaqua to Buck Mountain on
the 26th of this month.
