Onions Separate Man and Wife. •
Robert Quinby and his wife, of j
Parkersburg, Va., have separated. 1
The husband has appealed to the 1
law to divorce him forever from his <
wife, simply because she ate onions, t
contrary to his orders. Mrs. Quin- I
by has often been requested by her ;
husband not to eat the vegetable, 1
and nothing seemed to irritate him <
so much as the odor of onions. He ]
has left the little home on many ;
occasions and vowed never again to !
return, but the love for his wife, i
and her promise never again to eat .
onions, would re-unite them. I
The husband came home unex- i
pectedly one day last week and 1
found the surroundings very offen
sive to him from the odor of the
onions. 1
Mrs. Quinby has gone to her 1
home in Pennsylvania and' the hus
band will seek relief by law- 1

Not Too Old to Be Surprised.
A large assemblage of relatives
and friends gathered at the home
of Mrs. Mary Hileman, at Eyers
grove, last Tuesday, the occasion
being her sixty-first birthday. It
was a complete surprise to her, but
everything passed off very pleas
antly, and all enjoyed themselves
to the utmost. Sixty-nine persons
partook of the splendid dinner that
was prepared for them. In the
evening a hack load of young
people from Bloomsburg went up
and joined in the merrymaking.
Some amusing games were indulged
in, which were laughable to witness.
At a late hour the load returned
to Bloom and all agreed that it was
an event that will be long remem
bered. K.
The Susquehanna Journal printed
the following,which will bear closer in
spection than a casual glance affords:
A man owed $1 and only had but 75
cents. He went to a pawnbroker and
pawned the 75 cents for 50 cents, and
then meeting a friend sold him the
pawn ticket calling for 75 cents for 50
cents. He thus had two 50 cent pieces,
one dollar in fact, with which he paid
his debt. Was anyone out, and how
much ?

JENKS AND QUAYISM.
Some Extraots From the JetTeraon
Connty Statesman's Speeehos That
Show Clearly Where He Stands
on That Subject.
It has been alleged that the nomina
tion of Mr. Jenks for governor by the
Democratic convention at Altoona was
brought about through the Influence of
Quay. Some of Mr. Swallow's stumpers
are even yet so asserting In their
speeches. The allegation Is absterd
upon Its face. Quay knows Jenks.
knows him to be an honorable, high
toned gentleman, who can neither be
corrupted, nor by any power swerved
from the straight line of what he es
teems to be right and for the good of
the people. Had Quay been In position
to exert any Influence In the Demo
cratic state convention, George A. Jenks
is about the last man in the state for
whose success he would have em
ployed It.
Lest there should remain in any
Democratic or Independent Republloan
mind any doubt as to where Mr. Jenks
stands on Quay and Quaylsm, the fol
lowing brief extracts from his cam
paign speeches, etc., are herewith pre
sented:
"It Is well known and cannot be de
nied that Senator Quay has ruled leg
islatures for years past. His will was
the law of the majority, and no bill of
any importance was passed without his
approval, nor defeated without his con
sent."—lnterview with Philadelphia
Ledger. Sept. 1. 1898.
"Upon the Republican party, with its
glorious traditions, there has grown an
ulcer. M. S. Quay, for twenty-seven
years an office holder, twice a United
GEORGE A. JENKS.
States senator and again a candidate
for election, has acquired his power by
keeping an eye single to what benefits
him."—Speech at Warren, Pa., Sept. 18,
1898.
"Quaylsm is now the proper name of
the Republican party in Pennsylvania.
The particular characteristic of Its
managers Is selfishness, as all officials
are chosen, not for their peculiar fit
ness, but because of their willingness
or ability to strengthen the hands of
Quay and help him throttle the will
of the people."—Speech at Erie, Sept.
17, 1898.
"The concentration of power In the
hands of a single man In a republic Is
dangerous. The czar could not rule
here because the people still have the
spirit of liberty, yet they allow them
selves to be ruled Just the same by
Czar Quay through indirection."—
Speech at Oil City, Sept. 20, 1898.
"The real contest and Issue In Mils
election is between Quaylsm and the
people of the commonwealth of Penn
sylvania. The question you must an
swer on your conscience and on your
character Is: Who shall rule, one sin
gle. autocratic ruler, or the voice ofthe
people honestly expressed by ballot."—
Speech at Meadvllle, Sept. 19, 1898.
"The whole of Quaylsm Is corrupt
and rotten, not only In dollars and
cents, but In the principles that under
lie It. The government of the whole
state by any one man or by BO men.
Is a violation of the constitution of
Pennsylvania."—Speech at New Castle
Pa.. Sept. 21, 1898.
"We must settle this Quaylsm by
saying that the people's rule should be
resumed, and these wrongs should be
no longer perpetrated."—Speech at
Pittsburg, Sept. 24. 1898.
MULTIPLYING OFFICES.
Bow the Political Rounders Have Been Pro
vided With Snug Berths and
Fat Salaries.
I The following carefully prepared
j table shows how the Republican ma
chine has provided for political work
ers and their friends by securing sal
aried offices for them at the expense
of the taxpayers.
If there were not enough offices to
go around, more were created with an
offhandedness which Implied that the
machine, not the people, were the only
stockholders and directors in the man
agement of the affairs of state.

A Very Pretty Wedding.
The home of Frank Fritz, in Di
vide, was the scene of a very happy
wedding on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at
12:30, when his young and pretty
daughter, Alverda, was given in mar
riage to Mr. Joseph R. Heller, of
Unityville, Pa. The ceremony was
performed by Rev. E. E. McKelvy,
pastor of the M. E. Church at Del
ano, Pa.
The bride's father is a very indus
trious farmer and business man in
Divide. He takes a very active part
in politics and is a great silver advo
cate. The bride was the center of a
great many friends, and leaves a very
good home. The groom and his
brother are very successful black
smiths in Unityville.
After the ceremony an elaborate
dinner was served. The newly-mar
ried couple left on their trip with
happy hearts, amid showers of rice,
for Wilkes-Barre. They are followed
with the best wishes of a large num
ber of friends. May their life be
filled with heavenly sunshine and
prosperity.
