To-day's reception and contest, arranged
by the Wheeling Golf Club at its
links at Woodsdale, beginning the autumn
social session, ends a week during
which society rejoiced at the stork's
visit to Echo Point and regaled Itself,
with open air concerts in Wheeling
Park, Casino concerts, Casino dances,
and over the country drlyes to the Llnsly
camping grounds, after spending
the early mornings at the links and
tennis courts. Private homes have not
yet opened for entertaining and in all
probability will not for some time, and
then the first hospitalities will be given
in honor of the winter's coming brides,
some already on, will be celebrated In
every way with more eclat than usual.
"I see that the servant girl question

While the two golf club houses at
WoodsQalo anil the Bates Place.are not
exactly equipped yet as are': those of
Pittsburgh : and other ' metropolitan
cltlcs, that lack, added pleasure to the
summer sojourn, whether at; the; seuBhoro
of In the mountains, of ' the
Wheeling society matron and girl.
What Is to be expected when they arc,
is graphically portrayed as follows In
Harper's Bazaar:
Over the length of the sea-flhore and
through the height and breadth of the
mountain sounds a woman's wall that
never before was there r.uch a dearth cl
men. Even the over-Sunday man falls
to cnuvon me nunnery cairn or moat
summer resorts this season. And the
reason of this Is golf. Every town has
Its near-by golf links. This Is always
a stretch of beautiful country. Here
Is always a club house, substantial In
form, simple In adornment, and well
kept as?alas! that women must admit
It? well kept as houses kept by men
usually are. Here Is a first-rate cook,
here are perfect dinners.
With this paradise accessible to a
man by means of a short trolley or boat
ride after business hours Saturday,
what wonder that his heart is adamant
iv tuu uppctii ui ui even owuuiucui;
to join her over Sunday out of town?
This moans a rush to catch a train, c.
more cr I353 lengthy, hot dusty railroad
trip, and a^the other end he must dine
en regale Saturday evening, dance and
perspire at the inevitable hop that
night; Sunday is one continual whirl
of pleasure ( ?) planned for his especial
entertainment; he goes to bed at midnight
or later, arises with the chickens
next morning, swallows a cup of scalding
hot coffee, dashes for a shrieking
train, and gets back to town Anally
about ofllce hours, but quite too worn
for business that day. On the contrary,
over Sunday for the man at the links Is
a. lotus dream of leisure. Sunday
morning there Is an early breakfast?
and a good one. Then while the dew is
fresh on the grass, and the birds sing
their sweetest, there Is time to "go
round" before the sun Is up to catch
and scorch him. During the middle of
the day a pipe, a hammock, and a
book on the club-house piazza give a
charm to the heat. That evening another
round on the links, and afterwards
dinner with a few.cronies on the
lawn, where the only language spoken
is his soul's mother tongue?golf. Thl3
atay-in-town-over-Sunday man returns
to work Monday morning strengthened
for his task, and purring with the
thought that he can run back to the
links that same evening. He dictates
a long letter to his wife or sweetheart,
reeking with sorrow because he did not
get down on Saturday night. This is
frightened hypocrisy, and he knoxvs it.
But what else Is possible? Nothing,
doubtless, till clubs of golf widows are
formed to reclaim American husbands
from the moral bunkers and social hazards
of the links.
A quiet and pretty home wedding was
that of M1s3 Cora V. Bewer and Mr.
Harry Dj Sales Porter, solemnized at
tha home of the bride's parents, at ML
Pleasant, Ohio, on Tuesday : evening,
September 4th, at 8 o'clock, by the Rev.
J. W. Holt, of Moundsvllle, assisted by
Uev. B. J. Browne, of ML Pleasant,
pastor of the Presbyterian church, of
which the bride has been a prominent
member for several years. The bride la
well known here, at her home, and
Pittsburgh. The groom Is a son of
John L. Porter, cashier of the First
National bank of Frostburg, Md., and
holds a position with the flrm of Jones
& Laughlln, of Pittsburgh, where they
expect to make their future home. The
brlda was becomingly attired In a. traveling
suit of navy blue and carried a
bunch of roses. Her attendants were
Mrs. E. "\V. Wolfe, sister of the bride,
Mother's advice is worth more than
the advice of any other woman to the
daughter who is perplexed by the problems
of phyiscal health anil comfort.
There's no need therefore to " write to a
woman " who is a stranger.
There may, however, be need for a
physician's advice to supplement the advice
of the mother. In such a case the
offer of free consultation by letter, made
by Dr. Pierce, opens the way to health,
and at the same vtime avoids the uupleasant
questionings, the repulsive examinations
and offensive local treatments
which less experienced physicians often
insist on. .
Any sick or ailing woman is iuvited to
wr!t?? tn Dr. Pierre. Buffalo, in the strict
est privacy. EscJi letter is held as a
sacred confidence aud its answer is sent
in a plain envelope, bearing no printing
upon it.
Do not be misled by advertisements
offering "medical advice," which are
published by those whp.not being physicians
are not qualified to give such advice.
Any physician or doctor who has
a legal and professional right to the title
will publicly claim that title., Those
who offer "medical advice" and invite
you to " write to a woman " do not claim
that the woman is a doctor. The " radical
advice" of nil unprofessional woman
is just a* dangerous as the ".medical
advice" of an unprofessional man. In
more than thirty years Dr. Piorctfand his
stuff of nearly a score of medical specialists,
have successfully treated over half a
million women.OYou am write without
fear as without fee to Dr. R. V. Picrco,
Buflalo, N. Y. I
and Mi>?.. A. F. Bewer. The groom
i wore theconventional black and whs
attended by Mr. E. Wi Wolfe, of Wheel
ltirc, and Mr. C. F. Bewer, brother of Ihe
' bride. Th?: wedding inarch was play-'
. ed by Mrs. L. May Holt, of Moundsvllle.
; After the ceremony was performed a
, repast was served In the dining room
by the parents of the bride. In the
course of a few days the happy, couple
will make a tour of the lakes as far
; north as the Mackinac Islands.
During the month of October, the exact
time not as yet being decided, a
: rummaging Bale will be carried on under
the auBpfces of the King's Daughters
of this city, the proceeds to go to
: help paying the debt still owing on
their Day Nursery building, which was
purchased some time ago. The plans
i for this event are settled, except the
time and place of holdlng.lt. A storu
room In the central part of the city will
probably be secured, and a sale of rummaged
goods will occur. The term
' '-'Rummage Sale" may'seem odd to
some, but If everyone interested will
jcfndiy contribute pome article for xvhich
they have no use, they will be committing
an act of charity for which the
King's Daughters will be thankful.
Perrons wishing to give something toward,
thi3, furniture, clothes, carpets or
nnythnig cise that i3 not needed, can
telephone to Mr3. W. H. Hlgglns, of the
i Island.
Mrs., J. P. Merrlman, Mrs. Alex.

Chloroform Discredited as an Agent
for the Extinction of Dog Life.
Yesterday afternoon at the East End
dog pound, the legal execution of
twelve unclaimed dogs occurred in the
presence of Dr. William Petrie, who
was chief executioner, and Chief of
Police Clemans and Humane Officer
Echols?that Is It was supposed by all
concerned that the execution took place,
but this was a case of some other animal
than the cat coming to the front
with more than the allotted one life, as
approaching developments soon showed.
Tht dogs .were placed In a large
square box In company with a large
sponge saturated with chloroform, and
In ten minutes the dogs wero stretched
out apparently lifeless. They were at
once sent to the Fulton fertilizer plant,
and were to have been cremated last
night, but an hour or two before the
time set apart lor this interesting ccremony
the dogs one and all came back
to life, and soon there was such a
chorus of howlinc thnt nil nf Fulton
was on. edge. The fertilizer people called
In assistance, and with clubs and
pistols the docs were made away with,
but not before the around-the-hill village
had had a high old hydrophobia
Needless to state, chloroform has
been discredited as an agent for the
execution of unclaimed dog life.
Legitimate comedy will be the offering
at the Opera House on Monday and
Tuesday, September 10 and 11. "Hello
Bill" will be the attraction, and while It
Is new to this city, it has successfully'
run the gauntlet of criticism in nearly
every other important city in the country,
and has come out flushed with conquest.
As its title Implies, "Hello Bill"
is a comedy; not one of the idiotic slapstick
variety; not a series of specialties
strung together without rhyme or reason,
but a pure comedy of complications,
something between the late Augustin
Daly's farcical productions,
and Charles Frohman's "Jane." It is
Ingeniously constructed, and Its"lines
are bright and pithy. At no time does
it descend to vulgarity, and it stands
to-day one of the very few absolutely
clean comedies, that can produce
shrieks of laughter by absolutely, legitimate
Braunig Dramatic Company.
The Wllkesbarre (Pa.) Times ppeaks
of this excellent company as follows:
The company Is excellent and the new
scenery all that could be desired. The
piny was Credit Lorraine, a creation
which Included many Interesting situations.
Miss Mitchell in the leading role
carried off the honors. Bhe Is a pleasing
actress and did full Justice to author
Mnrston's lines. The play was
nicely staged, the costumes attractive
and the specialties very nicely (lone.
During the week the company will present
a varied repertoire, Riving both afternoon
and evening performances.
Ideals at the Grand.
The engagement of Hummelein's
"Ideals" at the Grand Opera House,
will close to-day. The large audiences
that have attended have been delighted
with the by scenic productions, and
big houses are expected to-dny. Last
night "The Pulse of Chinatown" was
presented In a very nrtlstlc and pleasing
mnnner, nnd made such an excellent
Impression that It will be repented
to-night, with new specialties. This
afternoon the "Ideals" will present
"Ten NlghtB In a Bar Room."
"The Man From Mexico."
