Company Takes Exception to Its Construction at This Par ticular Time Its Act Yesterday. i Today, at noon, the officers of the school district of Old Forge are to open bids for $15,(100 worth of bonds, which ure to be Issued for tlie purpose of erecting a new high school. Yesterday, the Delaware, lickuwunua and West ern Railroad company, through Attor neys M. I. Corbet t and Wurren & Knapp, secured from Judge Albright, a prellmnary injunction forbidding the issuing of the bonds, und a rule to show cause why the district should not be permanently restrained from increasing the Indebtedness, ns proposed, said rule la Ing returnable Jan. 4, ut 9 a. in. Nov. 11 last, William Repp und John Cook, president and secretary lvupect lely, of the Old Forge school board, In accordance with the legal requirements, filed with the clerk of the courts a state ment of the district's financial stand ing. This statement showed that at the close of the school year ending June 1, 1NU. the school district was not in debted In nny sum whatever, but hud a surplus; that Hie assessable property of the district was $772,i:iO; that the amount of dabt about to be Incurred for the new high school building is $15,000, the form of the obligation being thirty bonds of the denomination of $."00 ench, and that the unnunl tux to be levied for the payment of the indebt edness is eight per cent, of the debt. In Its petition for the Injunction the conipuny avers that the proposed bond Issue is Illegal us it contlicts with the following section of the act of June 13, ltt4: Section 1 Be It enacted etc,.

Any honest physician will tell you that there Is but one way to get Increased flesh; all the patent medicines and cod liver oils to the contrary notwithstanding. Nature has but one way to increase flesh, strength und vigor of mind and body, und that Is through the stomach by wholesome food well digested. Then Is no reason or common sense in any other method whatever. , People are thin, run down, nervou, pale and shaky in their nerves, simply because their stomachs are weak. They may not think they have dyspep sia, but the fact remains that they do not eat enough food or what they eat is not cpilekly und properly digested us It should be. Dr. Huliandson says the reason is be cause the stomach lacks certain digestive acids and peptones, und deficient secre tion of enstric juice, Nature'sVemedy in such cases Is to sup ply what the weak stomach lacks. Tlvre ore several good preparations which will do this, but none so readily as Stuart's Dyspepslu Tablets, which are designed es pecially for all stomach troubles, and which cure all digestive weakness oa the common sense plan of furnishing the di gestive principles which the stomach lucks.
