NOVEL WOOD MEETINGS. A very novel praise service, called the "Indoor camp meeting." Is going on In the Salvation army barracks on Price strei't. The llrst meeting was held lust night. A peep Into the hall disclosed a pretty sylvan scene. The farmers of Clcnhurn and vicinity are friends of the army, and during the week they have shipped carloads of small trees and evergreens for the use of the Salvationists. These trees nave been placed In rows about the spacious hall and the evergreen Is used to till In the bare spots. The service Is conduct ed In this man-made wood. Last night Staff Captain Hunter, of Wllkes-Harre. was the leader. He gave a spirited address and added vim to the service. Last night's service was called "The Devil's Tools," and to Illustrate the text a string of such things as an empty whisky bottle, a pack of cards, tobacco, etc., was stretched from the tree tops. Tonight Kev. F. P. Doty, pastor of the Hampton Street Method ist Episcopal church, will speak. The success of the meetings Is due to En sign William Do (iarris, who, to use an expressive term, is a hustler. HEAT AN OLD MAN.

The two fellows taunted him about this, one nf them snatching the pipe from the nged man's mouth. Oritliths resented ns best he could with his lists, but the younger men knocked him down and brutally bent him.

Common soda js all right In plac? and UridWAensalAuf In the .kltcbeu and for cooking and washing purposes, but It was never Intended for a medicine, and people who used It as such will some dajS regret. ft. We refer to the common use of soda to relieve heartburn or sour stomach, a huhlt which thousands of people prac tice almost daily, nnd one which is fraught with dunger; moreover the soda only gives temporary relief and In the end the stomach trouble gets worse and worse. The-soda acts as n mechanical Irri tant to the walls of the stomach and bowels and cases are on record where it accumulated In the Intestines, caus ing death by lntlummatlon or periton itis. Dr. Harlandson recommends as the safest and surest cure for sour stomach (add dyspepsia) an excellent prepara tion Bold by druggists under the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. These tablets are large 2(1 grain lozenges, very pleasant to taste and contain the natu ral acids, peptones, and digestive ele ments essential to good digestion, nnd when taken after meals they digest the food perfectly and promptly before It has time to ferment, sour and poison the blood and nervous system. Dr. Wuertli states that he Invariably uses Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets In all cases of stomuch derangements and finds them a certuin cure not only for our stomuch, but by promptly digest ing the foud they create a healthy ap petite. Increase flesh and strengthen the action of the heart und llver.They are not a cathartic, but Intended only for stomuch diseases and weakness and will be found reliable In any stomach trouble except cancer of the stomach. All druggists sell Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets at 50ctB. per package. A little book describing all forms nf stomach weakness and their cure mull ed free by addressing the Stuart Co., of Murshall, Mich. slah Johns sang several tenor solos with pleasing effect and the cornet solo by David Reese was executed In excellent style. The most prominent feature of the evening's entertainment was the solos by Madame Gwenlll Da vies, of Wales, who is here on a visit, and who kindly consented to take part In the programme. Her numbers were awaited with considerable patience, and when she appeared for the first time was given a rousing reception. She Is the possessor of a soprano voice remarkable for Its purity of tone and marvelous compass. Her enunciation is almost perfect and her rendition of the several selections completely capti vated the large audience. Airs. Da vies Is a graduate of Carnarvon Acad emy of Music, South Wales, and has won for herself an enviable reputation In her fatherland. The committee hav ing the affair in charge are to be con g'ntuluted for having secured her ser vices.
