Gov't Report ABSOlUTEltf PURE REPUBLICAN 11ALLY. Mass Meeting at Peckville Great En thusiasmJohn R. Jones Re publican Club Organized. At 8 o'clock last evening Ledyard's hall, in Peckville, was filled with th electors of the town of Peckville and they organized a Republican flub and named it the John R Jones Republi can club of Peckville. Between 2.0 and 3(10 pernous were present and pledged ihrnnelves to support the candidacy of John R. Jones for dis trict attornoy. The following officers were elected: President, James W. Smith; vie preni dent, S. Nowton; treasurer, WilliHin B. Steveiu; secretary, E. II. Ritter. The executive committee chosen wen George B. Newton, William J. Bonner, A. M. Clrk. William Day. S. W. Ar nold. D. B. Morgan, EJward Craig and Frank L. Taylor, The following gentlemen wore eject ed delegates to represent the club in the meeting of Republican Stute league at liarrisburg, Sept. 5: S. W. Arnold, James W. Smith, Willium B. Stevens; alternates, George W. Sit graves, William J. Bouner ubd Philip Snedicor. Herbert Jones, Ambrose Morgan, William Collins and Sol Morgan, con stituting the Columbian quartette, ol IlyJa Park, sang iu fine style some campaign songn, which were greatly enjoyed by the meeting. S. W. Arnold moved the adoption of the following resolution, which was carried with the wildest kind of en thusiasm which lasted for ten min utes: Whereas, John R. Jones, a resident of this borough, is a candidate for the nomi nation of district attorney of Lackawauna county, sunject to the will of the Republi can county convention. Mr. Jones has re sided in our midst nearly the whole of big life, lie is well and favorably kuowu. He is just, conscientious and able. It is with just pride that wo claim John R. J one as a citizen of Iilakley. We are proud ol him; proud of his ability.proud of his eloquence, proud of his spotless iutepri ty nutl unblemished character. The valley between Carbondale and Scranton has never been represented on the county ticket, neither has it ever been recognized since the erection of Lackawanna county iu the distribution of county officers, yet she casts a very lurge Republican vote and is an important factor in Republican poli tics of liickawanna county. The city of Scranton claims congress, judge, senator, prothouotary, sheriff, trea-urer and re corder. We cnll upou the Repub licans throughout the county and the leaders of the party to recognize this valley by placing John. R. Jones upon the ticket. It appears to us to be un fair to locate all the best offices in Scran ton. We believe that with his name upon the ticket this valley will go Hepublicaa bv the largest and most sweeping majority ever cast in the history of our county. By his charity and kindness to the poor and people iu distress be has won a linn place in t he hearts of all our people. Theretore, belt Resolved, That this club be instructed to use every honorable means to bring about the nomination of John R. Jones, etq., for district attorney. The Peckville band discoursed excel lent music A number of good speeches were made. John R. Jones moved the following resolution, which was car ried with great applause. Resolved, Thnt the dolegatos chosen to represent this club at the meeting of the Republican Stute league, at Barrisburg, Sept. A, b insiructed to vote for Major Everett Warren as president of the league, and that they do all in their power to bring about his election. Mujor Everett Warren is a lawyer of great ability. He is a thorough student of the political issues of the day, and the Republican Btate league could not make a wiser und better choice than br selecting him as their pre siding officer. Alayfleld.

Probably no man connected with the Weather Department is so well known or pupular as Elias B. Dunn, who has charge of the Bureau in New Pork city. He is a bright, happy man with a clear eye and a springy gait although bis duties and oares are numerous. "How do I keep well and fat and ohipper," be said recently to a news paper man who asked him the ques tion, "why I look after my health care fully, that's all. No matter how bard i he gales may be or how much respon sibility for the weather I have ou my shoulders, I look out for my digestion v ry carefully. I am a fit m believer in modern discoverieg and 1 have found that tbe pre-digrgted food Pankola does wonderful things for those wbo use it. I use it in my family and find that it not only is a food that enters quickly iuto the blood aud life but that it aids all other food to digest. People wbo wish to be up to tbe times aud avail themselves of all he modern discov eries or improvements should oy all means use Paskola. If you are not thoroughly posted about it and want to know more, go around to the cotn nany's office at SO Rjade street, New York city, or better still Bend for a pamphlet giving full particulars about it. I tell yon you will never regret it." Sergeant Dunn evidently believes thoroughly in everything he under takes, and he is jnst now utilizing tbe electric search liiiht in which he is in terested, in throwing the word Pasko la upon the elouds and walls where the lijfht is employed. All that can be learned from what he sayg regarding Paskola ig more than true and it is by no means surprising that it hag become so popular. A pamphlet giving full particulars about Paskola will be sent ou applica tion to the Pre-Dig-sted Food Co , 30 R-ade St., New York. Minooka. The Misses Nellie Thomas and Mary A.

Corcoran, eousin of Pi st master Corcoran, of Cincinnati, O., a mmber of the senate from Hamilton county, is visiting bis rienls h-re. The (an ions in Numbers. A lover of the curious in numbers has figured out some intcrestiri facts concern ing the city of Borliu. The city has 210 miles of streets, so that a person might walk ten days in the German capital with out going u p or down the same street twice. If the 1,400,000 inhabitants were to turn out at a grand review, and march in double file, they would form a line 750 miles in lengt h, a column long .ir.ouu'h to reach nearly entirely across Fiance. If the citizens should all determine to start on a journey on the same day and at the same timo all the cars iu Ciermiiny would accommodate but two-tbirdsof thei;- num ber. If formed in a single file, each with Ilia hand on the other's shoulder, the col umn would he nearly 2,000 miles long. If separated until only within speaking dis tance of each ether, the column would be a human telegraph line long enough to reach from Berlin to Calcutta, India. St. Louis Republic Seventeen Dollars for a Mustache. Albert Broers, a Berlin butcher, noted for bis long, black, handsome mustache, went on a trip to Landslierg, his native place, where he was joined by three fellow tradesmen the tw o brothers Gerhitz and Lehmpfnhl. The four went to dine at a restaurant, after which they began to dis cuss Ilerr Broers' beautiful mustache. Growing excited over the pleasing theme, the question was raised how much the wearer would take for it, and It was at last agreed to put up the mustache for sale by auction. The bidding was brisk, and tbe article was finally knocked down for ninety-four marks. A barber was called in, and after the operation the butcher wended his way minus his hirsute adorn ment, but with a substantial equivalent in cash, borne to the bosom of his family. Berliner Tageblutt. How Swedish. Maidens Tell. In Sweden maidens anxious to f orotell the future place a ring, a coin and a piece of black ribbon each under aseparate cup.
