Judge Gun ster delivered a severe censure upon the council, remarking that they had been cither badly advised or were act ing very stubbornly. In the face of for mer decisions of that and other courts. He Intimated that the case was anal ly closed, so far as this court was con cerned. The borough has recently is sued 12.500 in bonds, which were bought by local capitalists.

FACTORY VILLK. The Reading Circle met for the first time for the transaction of business nt the Methodist Episcopal parsonage last Monday e.venlng and was well attend ed to start with. It looks as though they were going to be a successful lit tle band of Christians, who are willing to devote one evening a wtek to the reading of the Scripture and other Christian literature. . The Christian elements seem to be In a disturbed condition down nt ltard wtil (more commonly called Mum bocker) again. It seems that Rev. J. M. Mussina has been holding a series of meetings down there nt the Evan gelical church, and it appears that some of the citizens of that remote town are not In favor of a minister of the gospel coming there and trying to convert some th.t are not on the straight and narrow path, nnd took ex ceptions In such a way that the rever end gentleman appeared before a Jus tice of the peace and swore out war rants for the arrest of Thomns Gor man, Webster Dickson. Robert Stark and Thomas Stark. The information chnrges them with wilfully and mali ciously disturbing the religious meet ing, and with wilfully, maliciously and riotously disturbing the peace and committing a public nuisance. Chief of Police Piatt from Tunkhannnck was up and made the arrests, and the young men were taken before 'Sciuire Kutz, of Ttmkbanniick, for a hearing and were held under bail of $200 for their appearance at cnurt. J. C. Reynolds' stone qtinrt Is closed for the winter on account of cold weather. Rev. C. C. Luther, of Tlrhlgepnrt, Conn., Is here for two weeks, nnd has charge of the series of meetings now being held at the Haptist church. In, passing through town the other day, our attention was attracted to the windows of Fred L. Foster's store, so much so that we were tempted to step Inside, nnd we think we are safe in saying that there was never so com plete or us handsome a line of holiday goods In this town as Fred is pre pared to serve his customers with from now till the new year. There Is on exhibition In the show window at Manchester's gallery a life size water color portrait of Stanley R. Newton, which Is the finest piece of urt that was ever exhibited in this town, and tvllects great credit nnd skill on the part of the artist. The pic ture and frame is to be presented to Dr. nnd Mrs. C. R. Newton, parents of the deceased young man, by the O. C. society of Keystone academy, of which Stanley was a member. At his home In Benton last Tuesday occurred the death of James C. Gard ner, of Hrlght's disease. The deceased was 5!) years old and a brother of p. C. Gardner, and father of Ira H. Gardner, of this place. Funeral services were conducted at the Haptist church In this place last Thursday at 2 p. in. Inter ment was made In Evergreen cemetery. Professor Manchester has already commenced rehearsals at the Haptist church for the Christmas music, and he assures us that this year s Christ mas music will excel previous occa sions. Charles Hrown. of Sprlngvllle, Pa., was calling on his uncle, James M. Hrown, of this place, last Thursday. Edmund Stiles died at his home on Church street last Wednesday night of general debility. Air. Stiles' face was a very familiar one to our townspeo- Stomach, sometimes called watcrbrash, and bui'iiinr pain, distress, nausea, dyspepsia, arc cured by Hood's Sarsa pnrillii. This it accomplishes because with its wonderful iower as a blood purifier, Hood's ui-supnrill:i gently tones and streitfrtliens the stomach and digestive organs, invigorates the liver, creates nil apetite, gives refreshing sleep, and raises the health tune. In caVs of dyspepsia and indigestion it seems to have " a magic touch." " For over 12 years I suffered from sour Stomach with severe pains across my shoulders, nd great distress. I had violent nausea which would leave me very weak and faint, difficult to get my breath. Tbcso spells came oftener and more severe. I did not receive any lasting benefit from physicians, but found such happy effects from a trial of Hood's Sarsaparilla, that I took several bottles and mean to always keep it in the house. I am now able to do all my own work, which for six years I have been unable to do. My husband nd son have also been greatly bene fited by Hood's Sarsaparilla for pains in the back, and after the grip. I gladly recommend this grand blood medicine."

His age was 72 years and 4 months. The funeral took place Saturday at the Methodist Episcopal church. The Masonic order of this place had charge of the services. District Deputy Mrs. George Skill horn, of Scranton. installed the ollleers of Paulowna Rehekah legree lodge of this place last Tuesday evening. Charles Whlttlmore. one of the stu dents at Keystone 'academy, accident ally broke his collar bone while skat ing last Thursday. He has returned to his home In Scranton till able to at tend to his studies again. It Is not often that our town Is treat ed to military music, but such was the case Thursday evening, and was first-class In every respect. Part of the Thirteenth Regiment Drum corps, composed of W. H. Hughes, Daniel Jones. J. L. Hughes, E. D. Richards and D. H. Hughes came up to take part In the Grand Army of the Repub lic services at the funeral of Comrade James C. Gardner, and on their way to the train in the evening they dis coursed some very fine military music, and previous to their departure from Hotel Howtll their quartette sang a few selections of the Grand Army of the Republic order, which was greatly appreciated by the old veterans. Don't forget that any news or pr sonals left at box 2M. postofllce, will receive prompt attention and will be appreciated by the scribe. It Is nothing more or less than gross negligence that the town council does not replace the street lamps that have been destroyed and are missing on Main street. Another "mad dog" scare has come pretty near striking our town, but it passed of toward Munibocker, so it won't live long. MARKETS AND STOCKS. nil Street Review. New York, Doe. 5.

Interesting statement by a, Young Lady In ltrooklyn. In the va-st retail establishments of large cities, many women are em ployed as saleswomen. Men formerly held the positions that women vv hold, "Tj and while I' women'sor (ranism is less strong than men's they a re expected to do the same work. Their duties compel them to bo on their feet from morning to night, nnd many of them, in a short time, contract these dis tressing complaints called "female diseases." Then occur irregularities, suppressed or painful menstruation, weakness, indigestion, leueorrloca, general de bility and nervous prostration. They aro beset with such symptoms afl dizziness, faintness, lassitude, ex citability, irritability, nervousness, sleeplessness, melancholy, " all-goue " and "wunt-to-be-left-uloue" feelings, blues and hopelessness. In such cases there is one tried nnd true remedy. Lydiu E. Pinkhttin's Vegetable Compound at once removes auch troubles. The following' is a cample : " .My dear Mrs. Plnkhnm : After writing you, nnd before your answer came, 1 was too miserable to go to the store, and so lost my position. That was five weeks ttgo. I urn now back asrain In my old place, nnd never felt so well in all my life. The bear-Ing-dowu pains and whites have luft me, and I am not a bit nervous or blue. Life looks brighter to me. don't iret tired, my temper Is real sweet, and I could scream right out sometimes for jo; Your Vegetable Compound is my stand by.
