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.

A GREAT PROPHET,
What He Has to Say About Foretelling
the Weather and Preserving the
Health.
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.

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

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.

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. If
the ring is first exposed they marry within
the year; tho 'coin secures a rich husband,
but the ribbon denotes an old maid. Cua
