He said that he had had a friendly argu ment with Thomas Butler (colored) at the above address, when without warn ing or provocation the latter jumped up and slashed his neck with a razor. The wound was three and a half inches king, but not deep, and Anderson went home after It had been dressed. Ander- tm la tM;rtyoneyears old and employ ed as a laborer at Belle dock.

SIMPLE HEALTHFUL LIVING. The Problem Not Difficult of Solution A western woman who had been for years a sufferer from "chronic gastritis, induced, It is believed, by over-indulgence in coffee," gives an Interesting experience, with a good, healthy moral attached to It: "For five or six years I tried every patent nostrum advertised for the relief or cure of dyspepsia. Sometimes I found temporary relief; sometimes I was for months blistered and burned with plasters externally, or drugged aind dieted till I was too disheartened and despondent to care whether I lived or died for I never got any permanent relief. "I have lived for weeks at a time on raw eggs, or dry toast, or buttermilk, or sweet milk. I have fasted for days, suffering the agonies of starvation, and then endured equally acute agony be cause I must eventually pat. "My kidneys became badly affected and a female weakness resulted- I was r?ri"t-icl na 1 at Hmoa1 at nfhprfl mitPri oma dated. I tried change of climate and spent three years traveling in search of health, coming back home to the same old routine of medicine. "It Is about three years now since I first tried Grape-Nuts food not with any hope of finding anything I could eat, but because I was so sick of every thing else. I liked the flavor of Grape- Nuts so much that I ate scarcely any thing else for a week. "I well remember my astonishment when I found I could satisfy my appe tite without paying the penalty of hours of suffering; that I could eat a supper of Grape-Nuts and sleep all night after wardssomething I had not done for years. "But even after a month's use of Grape-Nuts I did not Imagine the relief was anything more than temporary till I found I was gaining flesh at the rate of five or six pounds per month, that my digestion was restored, my kidney trouble had disappeared and my nerves had become toned up and steady. I have eaten Grape-Nuts dally ever since and shall continue to do so as long as I live. "At present I weigh 157 pounds not flabby, dropsical fat, but hard, solid flesh. I eat three meals every day, can indulge in fruit and never suffer a sin gle pang from Indigestion. My hus band, who used to suffer from coffee poisoning (sour stomach, flatulence and heartburn), has long since given up the Arabian berry and, using Postum Coffee and Grape-Nuts food, has become a hale, hearty, healthy man. "We think we have solved the prob lem of simple, healthful living, for aft er three years of Grape-Nuts food we are not tired of it. It is still delicious and supplies so perfectly the place of meat that our butcher's bills are an al most unknown quantity." Name given . y Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich, Thert's a reasao AT DAVENPORT CHURCH, REV. J. N. PIERCE BEGINS BIS PASTORATE. Signaled Out Davenport Chnrch When a Student a a Field for Hi Labors in the Ministry Sermon Was More a Heart to Heart Talk, Reminding Them of Their Duties to Each Other The Poor and Not the Rich Were AVhat They Had to Minister to Most. The Rev. J. N. Pierce, who has ac ceptably filled the pulpit of the Congre- gatlonal church at Mt. Carmel for some time past, nas resigned from that charge and accepted the pastorate of Davenport Congregational church, this city, and yesterday morning he began his ministerial duties there. Davenport church was founded in 1862 and Mr. vPierce is the fifth occupant of its pul- pit. For over twenty years the Rev. I. C. Meserv'8 labored as Its pastor, and the church prospered to an unusual de gree. For some time back the attend ance has been falling off, but It Is hop ed that with the help of the new pastor the church will once more take her place among the progressive churches of New Haven.' There was a good at tendance at the morning service yester day when the Rev. Mr. Pieroe preached his first sermon as its pastor, choosing for his text "For other foundations can no man lay than ttiat which is laid," Mr. Pierce's address was more of the nature of a simple heart to heart talk with his congregation than of the na ture of a sermon. He reminded them of the responsibility that lay on them both as pastor and people. In part he said: To tilm the preaching of his first ser mon as minister of Davenport church was a great pleasure. Some four years ago when a group of theological stu dents were discussing the question as to where they would like to preach, he at that time singled out Davenport as the parish where he would like to min ister. He had looked around the local ity then and saw that it was situated where there was a broad field for labor, a place where there was a great work to be done, and many souls to save Speaking of Sunday's attendance at the service Mr. Pierce said that every Sun day since he came there he had observ ed new faces. His preaching and their listening were, he reminded them, but a small part of what ttiey had to do If they were to accomplish the work set before them. They ought to shoulder the responsibility of coming to church every Sunday morning and taking their part in the service. He also reminded them that he expected more from Uiem .and members of Davenport church than their mere attendance at service. There was some little thing for each of them to do individually and from which they, must not shrink. Speaking on the foundation of ttie church, Mr. Pierce re minded them that the church's founda tion was Jesus Christ and it was also the foundation that every one's life and character was built upon. If they were to be successful, 'as a church they must keep out of the wood, the hay.and trie stubble and bring forth the gold, the silver arid the precious stones. All the talents that G-od had endowed them with they should consecrate to his work and glory and until they had done that they could not expect to build upon the structure which Christ had given them as their foundation. The preacher next reminded them of the great need there was for brotherly love and the spirit of living together in unity and the exer tions that they ought to put forward to save their brother man. He was gald the free pew system was In vogue in Davenport church. He believed their duty was to preach to the poor more than to the rich, not for those living In the palaces of Whitney avenue, but rather for those living in and around the district in which their church stood. As in the building of the temple by King Solomon, so was It with them. They had all some little part to do which would ultimately bring to com pletion the church which is; built on the one grand foundation of Jesus Christ the Lord. JOHN FAHEY INDICTED.

Small Blaze on Day Street Saturday Night The attic of the house 63 Day street, which is owned by A. Greenberg and is occupied by a colored family named Covvles, was discovered to be on Are at 10:03 o'clock Saturday night and the department was summoned on a bell alarm. The fire burned out part of the attic and quite a place on the side wall. It is estimated that the damage will amount LEGISLATORS ACCUSED OF IGNORANCE BY BAER (Continued from First Page.) the so-called operators are refusing to allow the miners an increase in wages, thus another strike is threatened.' This is in form a cowardly statement, the falsity of whclh the public should know. "Prior to 1900 the wages as paid by the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron company were fixed by a sliding scale. In 1900 under the leadership of the United Mine Workers' association the labor troubles began. It is just, therefore, to compare prices and costs in 1899 with present costs and prices. The average price per ton, received by the coal and Iron company for its coal at the mines in 1899 was $1,713, tiie average price per ton received In 1905 was $2,449- This shows an increase of 73 6-10 cents per ton in seven years. "The increase in the cost of mining was 63 3-10 cents per ton, which was made up as follows: Labor cost per ton 1899, $1,067; labor cost per ton law, $1584. The cost of materials increased from 31 4-10 cents in 1899 to 43 cents In 1904, In other words the Increased cost of production was labor, 51 7-10 cents; materials, 11 6-10 cents, or a total of 63 3-10 cents, leaving to the coal com pany an increase of only 10 3-10 cents per ton In the last seven years. "In point of fact, notwithstanding this increase of 10 3-10 cents per ton, if the coal and iron company had charged the, usual average royalty of 30 cents per ton for coal mined from its own mines, the operations of the company would have resulted In a loss. "By reference to the annual report of the coal and iron company for the year 1899 It will be found that the surplus for that year was only $422,038.30- In the previous year there was a deficit of $53,524.54. , "But some one will ask, why Is it that the Reading system Is now making money and Its stock advancing? Does It not make it up in the transportation of anthracite, what It loses in mining coal? Here, again, the. facts will be a full answer to the suggestions: "The transportation of anthracite coal is not the important factor in the increased revenue of the Reading sys tem. As far back as 1877, the anthra cite traffic was 61.60 per cent, of the total freight and passenger traffic re ceipts of the Philadelphia and Reading company. Now the receipts from mis cellaneous traffic, which does not in clude bituminous coal nor passenger traffic, exceed the receipts from an thracite coal traffic and the proportion of anthracite traffic has diminished to 33.50 per cent. To-day the passenger receipts alone are equal to. one-half receipts on anthracite coal. The in creased prosperity of the Reading sys tem is due to the increase of miscel laneous traffic, passngar traffic and bituminous coal traffic. "In point of fact, there has been a very small increase in traffic receipts from anthracite coal, and no increase In rates thereon. The average receipts from traffic on anthracite coal for the last five years have been $10,334,850. The traffic receipts from the same source in 1883 were $10,046,760, and In 1893, $10,123,575. ' 'These are the facts and if any com mittee of the legislature wants to vert by their accuracy, the books of the company are open for Inspection. Signed: Genrgo F. Baer, President Reading Company." DOLAN SAYS STRIKE WOULD BE A FAILURE (Continued from First Page.) creased from ten to eight hourse since 1!S7 Is It right under this Ryan reso lution to jeopardize all' these things? And let me tell you, the miners of this country have never won a prominent soft coal strike under the direction of President Mitchell. Mark Hanna settled the first anthracite strike for us, and President Roosevelt settled the second. Nobody has settled our big soft coal strikes, because we have loat them President Mitchell's first big soft coal strike was In the southwest. It lasted eighteen months and ended In utter failure. Hundreds of good men were victimized. The second big soft coal strike was In .Maryland, where our peo ple were utterly defeated. His other disastrous soft coal etrlke was in Ken tucky. "In Colorado, where the organization sprnt over $500,000, our union was wlp d off the face of the earth; in West Virginia, central district, we were de feated; in the Cabin ' Creek district, Wtst Virginia, where the organization spent $300,000 we lost; In the Meyers dale region we spent $400,000, and were defeated. "At the present time we hav a strike of 8,000 mlnrs In Alabama, which has been on for nineteen months. They are striking against a ten per cent, reduction. Under the Ryan reso lution, which eays all the districts must get twelve and one-ihalf per cent, ad vance over the present scale, the Ala bama operators will have to withdraw their demand for a ten percent, reduc tion, and give the twelve and one-half per cent, advance, or a total difference of twenty-two and one-half per cent, before any other district in the courtry can settle. How Is this to be brought about? "The Pittsburg district has been crit icised because It has not more than 28,000 members. President Mitchell is aa much at fault as any living man. He refused to help us. He came into the non-union Irwin district at the very height of his popularity and widely ad vertised two meetings. At one he had fifteen men, and at the other we ad journed because ther wasn't anybody there. When Mitchell can't get a meet ing, what can a fellow like me do? "I have btn in the trades union movement for thirty-flve years in Scot land and America. I have sat at the feet of the greatest labor leaders the world has ever known, including the great Alexander McDonald- From boy hood, I learned that it is a leader's duty to tell his people, not what they would like to hear, but what they should know. They must be told when they are in the wrong, as well as ap plauded when they are in the right This is my platform,, and 1 am willing I to rise and fall with it before the min- 1BTBH DOCTORS w Spread Rapidly Over Body Limbs and Arms Had to Be Bandaged . and Scalp Looked Dreadful Suffered Untold Misery for Threa Years Better in Two Months MARVELOUS CURE BY, CUTICURA REMEDIES " "My 6on, who is now tweaty-two years of age, when be was four months old began to have eczema on his face, spreading quite rapidly until he waa nearly covered. We had all the doctors around us and some from larger places, but no one helped him a particle. The eczema was something terrible, and the doctors said it was the worst case they ever saw. At times his whole body and face were covered, all but his feet. I had to bandage his limbs and arms; his sculp was just dreadful. I used many kinds of patent medicines before trying the Cuticura Remedies,- all to no avail. "A friend teased me to try Cuticura. At last I consented, when my boy was three yeare and four months old. having had eczema all that time, and suffering untold misery. I began to use all three of the Cuticura Remedies; the Cuticura Soap helped as well as the Ointment, lie was better in two montlis; in six months he was well; but I gave him the Cuticura Resolvent one year, using twelve bottles, I think, and always used the Cuticura Soap for bathing, and do now a good deal. He waa four years old before he was well, and his skin became per fectly fair when cured. I give you per mission to publish this letter for I am always glad to do good when I can.
