Children Cry for
Bridge Over the B. «€• O. R. R. on Rorth
Charles Street Extended.
Approaches to said bridge are now com
pleted and it is ready for travel. Grade ol
approach on south side is 4$ feet per 100 ;
on north side 3 feet per 100. The grade on
this bridge is considerably lighter than
the grade on George street from North alley
to B. & 0. R. R . and from Evitt’s Run on
Washington street to Potato Bill. The fol
lowing will be about the entire cost of the
bridge when completed:

Total...$4,#35 00
Of this amount the citizens on Charles
street contributed $.500, Jotferaon county
*500 and the B. 4 O. R. R- *500. The bridge
consists of three spaus of thirty-one feet
each. Mr. Baylor says he considers this
bridge stronger than the one erected by him
over the Opequon Creek near Middleway in
1S89, which was guaranteed to carry a load
of one hundred and fifty pounds to the square
foot, with a factor of safety o! four, while
this bridge was only guaranteed to carrv a
load of {•■'' hundred pounds, with the same
f ictor wi oaiely. The component parts of
this bridge are extra heavy. The Vulcan
Road Machine Works Company are willing
to have it tested with four traction engines,
run two abreast, which is equivalent to a
load of twenty-five to thirty tons. The
bridge is creditable both to the Vulcan Road
Machine Works and the council. Mr. Bay
lor says so far as he knows his services with
the town closed June 14. If the bridge
could speak it would say, “Give me plenty
of paint and 1 will live until the closing of
the twentieth centurv.”—Advocate.

The readers of this paper will be pleased
to learn that there i9 at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure in
all its stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall’s
Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure known
to the medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a constitu
tional treatment. Hall’s Catarrh Cure is
taken internally, acting directly upon the
bfood and mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation of the
disease and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and assisting
nature in doing its work, lhe proprietors
have so much faith in its curative powers
that they offer One Hundred Dollars for any
case that it fails to cure. Send for list of
testimonials. Address, _ , ,

Caused by Carelessness.
The majority of people die sooner than
they should, feculence of this fact Ls grow
ing daily. Waring says: " Disease is not a
consequence of life; it is due to unnatural
conditions of living—neglect, abuse, want.”
Dr. Stephen Smith, on the same subject,
“Man is born to health and long life; dis
ease is unnatural, death, except from old
age. is accidental, nnd both are preventable
by human agencies.” This is almost invari
ably true of death resulting from heart dis
ease. Careless over-exertion, intemperate
use of tea, coflee, tobacco, nlcoholic or other
stimulants are generally the causes of this
difficulty, and indiflerence to its progress re
sults in’sudden death, or long sickness end
ing in death. By the newspapers it can be
seen that many prominent and hundreds ol
persons in private life die from heart dis
ease every day.
If you have any of the following symp
toms:' shortness of’brcath, palpitation, irreg
ular pulse, fainting and smothering spells,
pain in shoulder, side, or arm, swollen
ankles, £tc., begin treatment immediately for
heart disease. If you delay, the consequences
mav be serious.
For over 20 years Dr. Franklin Miles,
the eminent specialist, lias made a profound
rtudv of heart disease, its causes and cure,
and many of the leading discoveries in that
direction are due to him. His J<ew Heart
Cure is absolun lv the only reliable remedy
for the cure ol heart disease, as is proved
by thousands of testimonials from grateful
persons who have used it.
James A. Pain, editor of the Corry, Pa . Leader,
states: ** Aiter an apparent recovery from three
months of la grippe. I fell on the street uncon
scious from heart disease. Iu one month from
that time I was unable to walk across my room,
and my pulse beat from 85 to 11G times a minute.
I then used Dr. Miles’ New Heart Cure, and at
once became stronger. After using six bottles 1
was able to work as usual and walk a mile every
day, my pmse ranging from *8 to 60. Dr. Miles'
rcincdv is not only a preventive but a cure."
