The impaneling of the Jury In the

at 3.1(1 yesterday afternoon, the list be

kohlusoii, Addison E. Mowry, George
Smith, Ira Winters, Draper Smith,
Huol 1 laker, D. A. Knupponberg, Corey
Walters, Charles F. Halin. The attor
ney for the commonwealth took up the
case and William and Henry Water
man, Woscott, and Thomas Harding
were sworn. The main points of evi
dence soiiiilit to be established by the
llrst witnesses were to the effect tliDt
Waterman came toTunkhannock on the
day of the murder to attend court; that
Ir absolutely necessary in order to liaTe

'"hero ure about 2101) disorders inci

Tho best remedy for ull blood dis

he put up at the Wyoming house, and
that late In the evening he was found
dead In tho alleyway near the Gearhart
coal pockets under circumstances that
Btrongly pointed to murder. Harding,
who Is proprietor of the Wyoming
house, testified that Waterman put up
at his house; that he became visibly
Intoxicated during the day, and that
early In the evening he left the house
still In the same condition; that Pert
Pratt and Wescott became apparently
alarmed for his safety when he did not
return at bedtime and started out to
hunt him up. About 10..10 they came
In and announced that they had found
him out In the alley and he was dead.
Harding took an engineer's torch and
went out to see about It, nd without
wailing to Investigate whether the
man was actually dead, ran to Dr.
Bidleman's olllce and aroused him. The
latter went over and examined the man
nnd found him dead. Harding testified
as to the position of the body, which
was lying with the head next the stone
embankment that supports the Inclined
railroad tracks leading up Into the coal
chutes, the feet stretched out Into the
roadway, the hat clasped between the
legs. He also testified to a conversa
tion with Fred Wall which occurred
next day, In which Fred said: "I un
derstand they say I had something to
do with this murder?" "Yes," replied
Harding, "I've heard It Intimated that
you might have had something to do
with It." "I don't see why they should
say such things as that; I didn't have
anything to do with him," said Wall.
"Well," replied Harding, "you was with
Bert Pratt last evening, and they seem
to think he had something to do with
It, and so they suspicion you." Asked
by an attorney If Wall didn't say that
he could put his hand on the man that
did It, he replied that he wasn't Just
sure whether he said that, but he
thought he said he believed he knew
who did it, but he couldn't swear to It.

Dear Sias:
Before accepting your kind
invitation to spend the
you at Farmville, I would like
to know if there are any com
missions which I can attend
to for 3'oit.
You know everything is
much cheaper here and more
up to date than around your
part of the country, and if
you have any change, I should
advise you to invest it in
yourself and the boys. There
is a store here called "THE
BELL," No. 230 Lackawanna
avenue, where I bought a suit
very cheap. You will be sur
prised to hear that I paid only
$7.00 for it. Gent's furnish
ing goods can also be bought
therefor half the amount that
you would pa' in Farmville.
Let me know by return of
mail just what you want, and
I shall be glad to accommo
date you. With love to Lydia,
Ruben and. John, also your
self. I remain yours,
P. S. Tell the boys that
with every knee pants suit
sold at the "BELL" each boy
is entitled to a chance on a
bicycle to be drawn for July
5. Don't let them miss this.
Follow Charles Augustus's
advice and trade at
230 Lackawanna Ave.
