Two years ag j she had the grip. Afte recovery her eyes grew inflamed and sup turated. For over 7 months she had to have her eyes bandaged and stay in a dark room. The family doctor and an oculist did everything possible. She did not Im prove and even grew worse. At last after six months he gave us the discouraging opinion that the cornea of one eye was de stroyed And Sight Entirely Cone. That it was doubtful if she would ever be able to see any with the other, as the sight was rapidly being destroyed in that also. Hood's Sarsaparilla Do not be induced to Sunday next. Mr. Stone, was stationed last at Masonvllle, Delaware county, N. Y. -Rev. J. C. Hogan, who has ended a three years' pastorate at Forest City, goes to Rush, this county.

Mr. D'Alton is the guest of his daugh ter. Mrs, W. J. Davis. A Po!ander went Into the store of Max Heller, Tuesday evening, to buy a cap. He owed Heller a bill of $3 be fore anu the proprietor of the store asked him for it. The Polander, whose name strongly resembles the Inscrip tions on the tombs of the Pharaohs, re plied that he had no money and could not pay. Thereupon the redoubtable Max fell upon the countryman of Kos suth and smote him sorely and applied his shoe to the most ample part of his customer's anatomy, as he drove hln. from the store. Quite naturaiiy, the Polish gentleman was incensed. He swore out a . warrant before 'Squire Maxey, and yesterday the trial came off. The defendant elected to have a Jury trial, and six good men and true listened 'to the evidence and de cided that Heller was not guilty, but that each should pay half the costs. It seems that the store proprietor had not assuulted the Polander until the latter had very much aggravated him by taunting remarks concerning Mr. Heller having been beaten in several BUlts recently at Montrose. Mrs. Leonard Campbell Is visiting friends at Pittston. A very Interesting programme will be . presented by the Epworth league Tuesday evening next. Admission will be free.
