The old Bradfoid Drug Store Is an estab lishment well known to every one in this vicinltv. and Is now owned and run by the nhnvn named gentleman, who carries larm and carefully selected stock of drugs and medicines, paper hangings, paints and nils, artists' sunn ies. clirars. etc. Although established in the drug business but a short time, since December, 1887, Mr. Clark Is by no means a stranger to our people, having been engaged in the business of house painter and dealer In paints and oils in this villa for over thirty years previous to en tering the drug business. A glance over hi wall kt'nt store, will show the visitor that his stock is large for a village of this ai7. hut. it will be readily understood that considerable share of his extensive trade comes from the towns In Immediate proximity to Bradford. Mr. Clarke Just now is makina a specialty of ready-mixed paints, and it goes without saying that his long experience as a practical painter ena bles him to exercise good judgment ' in se lecting a stock. B. T. PILL8BUBY. No village of the size of Bradford could well get along without a stove store and tin sIiod. and therefore we take pleasure in calling the attention of our readers to the stock of B. T. Pillsbury at his store on Main street. He has been established here since 1860, occupying his present location all of the time with the exception of six vears, when he was located in the store now occupied as a drug store. He keeps a full line of stoves, tin ware, etc., and at tends to all kinds of repairing, plumbing, etc. BRADFORD RESTAURANT. . Located next door to the Photograph rooms, is a welcome addition to the bus! ness places in town. It was opened in October last by the present proprietor, Mr. G. V. Brown, .who keeps a well-selected stock of all kinds of confectionery, fruit, nuts; cigars, etc. Meals are furnished at all hours of the day, and oysters are kept constantly in stock. r,. J. BROWN. The meat market run by the above nanv ed gentleman was opened some two years ago, and Is well stocked with a general line of meals, etc. No special mention by us could add anything to the reputation of this place of business, as ever since it was es tablished a daily testimonial of the exceL lence of the goods here dispensed has found a place upon the tables of the citizens of Bradford. DR. O. H. STEVENS Is another of Bradford's representative pro fessional men, who believes in keeping abreast of the times, and with this end in view has secured tor this immediate vicini ty the exclusive control of the Dental Elec tric Vibrator, which is coming into general use for the painless extraction of teeth The Doctor is meeting with most excellent success with this comparatively new inven tion, and also with his regular practice, at his rooms over Doe Bros. He has been es tablished some twenty years, and is consid ered a permanent fixture. The Doctor is also actively engaged in in troducing the Magnetic Scratches Remedy, which we are assured is doing more than is even claimed for it. It has been on the market for about three years, and is meet ing with a ready sale. A Fall of 8,000 Feet. A most exciting incident took place in con nection with the balloon ascension at Staf ford Springs, Conn., not long ago. "Pro fessor" Hogan, the parachute "artist," who had been engaged to make a balloon ascen sion, bad waited all day for the wind to die dowa ' About 5:30 o'clock, before 8,000 spectators, be inflated bis monster machine and ascended gradually to a height of 4,000 feet, or nearly a mile. At that enormous height the balloon with its occupant ap peared to be about the size of a frog. According to his programme, the aeronaut cii this point fixed his balloon so that it would fall to the earth alone, and prepared to make bis daring descent by means of the parachute, which was attached to the sida of the balloon by a small cord. The parachute, when inflated, is a sort of cone in shape, the base of which looks like an umbrella, the sides being numerous cords and the apex be ing a small iron ring, to which the professor hangs by his hand. Mr. Eogan jumped from the basket at that terrible altitude with the Iron ring in his hand. The cord attaching the chute to the balloon at once broke, leav ing the daredevil with his flimsy apparatus nearly a mile from the earth. A terrible thing now happened. The cords had become entangled and stiffened by the rain, and prevented the great chute from ex panding its broad surface In the air, through which the aeronaut was falling with fright ful speed. The people below, looking up with wide open mouths, could see nothing but a dark line, becoming longer at each instant and coming toward the earth with the speed of lightning. "My Oodl" cried a looker on; Bogan's gone!" A woman clutched fran tically at a strange man at her side as the body in the air was seen to careen to one side, as if unstable. At this point, when fully one-half of the descent had been made in but a few seconds, and when not one of the 8,000 spectators expected aught else but a catas trophe, the great surface of the chute waa seen to expand, and thence there was only a graceful, easy fall that turned every groan to a smile. , When the performer reached the ground he aid that at the beginning of the descent he realized bis danger, but could do absolutely nothing but clutch the ring. He was unable to breathe, hii bead began to swim, faintne.il overtook him, and his sensation was that his fingers were relaxing their bold. At this point, however, the entangled cords that held inciosed the folds of the chute were snapped by the enormous pressure of the air, and he was saved from certain death. Springfield Republican, PAUL AKERS' FAMOUS WORK. The "Head Pearl Diver" Finds a Put chaser In Portland, Ms. Readers of "The Marble Faun" wil remember the studio of the American sculptor "Kenyon" in Rome, and two pieces of statuary therein favored with especial notice oy Hawthorne. The sculntor "Kenvon" was Paul Akers, We Know this because,Akers occupied at that time the studio which bad been Canova's tne self same studio which "Kenyon" wrought because the doscnption or bis ' features urmly cut, as if already marble, an ideal foreheud, deeply set eyes and mouth much hidden in a licrht brown beard. applies to Akers; and, finally, because in the prciace to ine jnaroie raun Hawthorne says that the American artist of bis romance is none other than Maine's (rifted sculptor. In that studio there were two pieces of Akers' work that strongly attracted Haw thorne. One was the marble bust of Milton, which is now in the library at Colby university; the other was the "Dead Pearl Diver," of which the "Miriam" of the "Marble Faun" says in words that embody the criticism of Hawthorne himself: "1 like this statue : thouarh it is too cold and stern in its moral lesson, and physically, the form has not settled itself into sum cient re nose." "The Pearl Diver" was modeled in Italy in 1857, and cut in marble the next year. Akers died in 1861, when only 85 years of age, leaving accom plished a great work, which seems small, however, beside the lavish promises of his genius. The "Dead Pearl Diver" was carried to New York by Akers, and there became one of the chief attractions of the exhibition at the Dusseldorf gallery. When that exhibition was broken up the "Pearl Diver," with other fine spoils of the collection, was taken to the Academy of Fine Arts in Buffalo. JN. x. The academy could not afford to buy it. but it was allowed to remain tnere, where it was admired by all who saw it. (jovernor Israel Wasnburn was very anxious to have it purchased and brought to Maine, but gave up the undertaking because there was no so ciety with facilities for caring for it. When the Society of Art was formed in Portland, however, Mrs. Elizabeth Akers Allen thought the time suitable for having the statue placed in the city, which, before all other cities, should remember the work of Paul Akers. The real value of the statue, as the sculptor would compute it, was some- tning like siauuu. Mrs. Allen. How ever, was willing that it should go to Portland for a price as low as would be proper for such a work of art. So she fixed the price at $5,000, and then offered to contribute herself $2,000 to ward the sum needed. The offer was promptly made known to prominent citizens of Portland, who responded readily and liberally with the funds needed to complete the sum of $5,000. The money has been paid over and the statue has arrived at Portland. The figure tells its story at the first glance, btretcned on the worn rock, at the bottom of the sea lies the diver. lapped in the soft slumber of death and rocked gently, one feels, by the multitudinous waves. , The arms are thrown carelessly above the head, one hand buried in the floating mass of long, dark hair. The net partly filled with pearl bear ing shells, which he will never bear to the upper world, is still attached to the diver's waist. The bright young face is turned upward, but the half closed eyelids are weighted with eter nal sleep.

Convicted by a Piece of Bread. A tramp named Liauty has just been condemned at Blois for the murder of an unfortunate woman whom lie met on the high road. He attacked and stabbed her repeatedly, afterward throwing her into a pool while she was still living, hrst taking from uer her little savings, amounting to sixty cents. The peculiarity of the case lies in the evidence that convicted the murderer. On the bank of the pond near the spot where the corpse was discovered there was found a large piece of bread, the end of a loaf with a singular bulge at one .side. One of tne neighbors testified that on the morning of the day the crime was her eat. and committed Liauty had come to house to beg for something to She gave him a glass of piquctte a nuucli ol bread, lie drank the wine and put the bread in the breast of his blouse, saying that he would eat it later. The loaf she had cut it from was home baked. One of the bricks in the floor of her oven was missing. so that in each batch of loaves there was one with a protuberance marking the site of the missing brick. It was this protuberance that enabled her to identify the bread found near the body with the piece she had given Liauty. raris Letter. Rounding Corves. People talk about curves and twists in railroad tracks in mountainous country, where bridges and cuts add to their fears, but it is all nonsense, A curve on such a road is no worse than curve in a level country. I was thrown from one side of the car to the other, out of a seat, on the Santa Fe a few years ago on level track. You hear a great many stories about sud denly finding yourself in another seat, out ims is one or tne tew actual oc currences.

It Is an Appetiser, and Is Especially Noted for Fine Hluoe Pies. John Wanamaker has one of the biggest kitchens in the worlijl. It is in the basement of his Philadelphia store, wuere no rats are tolerated ana no dampness is permitted to penetrate. Wanamaker takes great pride in this kitchen, as he does in everything con nected with his store. Often he goes down to the big steam cooking pans, lifts the lid, tastes the soup, peeps at boiling potatoes, or inspects the little porcelain pan in which the charlotte russe is served. Wanamaker is noted for his rich charlotte russe, and the dolicacy is made from a recine fur nished the chief cook by Wanamaker nunseu. wanamaker likes to take visitors through his kitchen and ask them to sample the food in all its stages of preparation. His is one of the few great kitchens in the world which a man may ao through and come out with a e-ood annetite. Wanamaker's kitchen is actually an appetizer. The great merchant is never so happy as when running a knife into the Lancaster county but ter and passing it around for visitors to taste. In Wanamaker's restaurant from 4,000 to 8.000 Dersons are fed every day, and Wanamaker is not too proud to lunch in his own shop. In summer he makes and sells there 3,000 quarts of ice cream daily, and in oys ter season fries 30,000 oysters. Wana maker knows his trade and caters to it as carefully as an apple woman on the I ml. 1 ii. 1 - bm-cgii turner, xuat is me way uo ue came rich. An instance of this is to be found in the orders he once gave his restaurant manager about mince pies. "Have onlv tne best mince pies that money will buy," he said, "even if you have to sell at a loss. I can afford to sink $10,000 a year in mince pies rather han have people say I do not give them good pies. The people of Phila delphia can t be fooled on mince pies." Neither can Wanamaker, and with his usual carefulness in seeing that all his orders are carried out to the letter it was for a long time his custom to slip downstairs and sample the pie every day. Wanamaker is now famous for his mince pies. When Wanamaker first started up his restaurant, then a much smaller place than it now is, his manager or dered 200 dozen assorted pies in antici pation of a big run by the Philadel- pnians on their favorite pastry. But the customers were scarce the next dav. and when the store closed 197 dozen pies were still on hand. The restaurant manager was in consternation. He at once sought Wanamaker, whom he found in his office after all the em ployes had trone home. "Are the niea still good?" asked the great merchant after listening to the manager's story. ies; tney will be good all day to morrow, but not after that. "Well, then," said Wanamaker, "put an ad vertisement in every morning paper to-morrow announcing that for this day only we will sell choice, fresh pies at a cent a cut. See what that will do." Next morning the Phila- lnhians read Wanamaker's nie ad- vertfsWieuts and" by nightfall there was not a niece of nie left in the house. In telling this story Manager Gillam added: "That is the way with Wana maker. He will have only the best tnat is to be had, and when tne goods won t move he makes them move. Cor. Chicago Tribune. A Dream Realized. Iam not "a believer in dreams" in the common acceptance of the term, but I have recently had an experience that, to say the least, was remarkable. I will relate it simply as a matter of fact, not as an argument. Few people in St. Louis have entirely forgotten the famous Reily tragedy, which occurred about five years ago. George Reily, a river pilot, killed his wife and then committed suicide. I was an old time friend of Reily, and was at his bedside before he died, and while he was suf fering from the self inflicted wounds. I attended his funeral and have cher ished his memory as that of an un fortunate friend. Thomas D. Freeman, of Monroe City, Mo., was a longtime friend of both myself and Mr. Reily. On the 10th of January last, while taking my morning nap, I dreamed that George Reily came to me and told me that Freeman had died at 4 o'clock that morning. I told my wife of my dream, but as we had not heard that Mr. Freeman was ill we thought little of it. On the 17th of January I re ceived a paper from Monroe City con taining a notico of the death of Mr. Freeman, which I subsequently learned had occurred on the very day and at the very hour I had dreamed. Mr. r reeman was assistant postmaster at xnonroe tjity when he died. (Jor. Globe-Democrat. Doe It Bain Fish? No doubt you have read stories of fish and tadpoles coming down in the rain, and perhaps you were puzzled aooui sucu strange tnings. lsn t this a very reasonable explanation of the mystery? A party of travelers once encamned over a dried up pond in Africa which gave little evidence of ever having neia water, boon alter a ternnc rain storm came on, filling the place so that they were compelled to move to a higher location. One of the men, re turning, however, for some reason, in waning to tne site of the camp, found, to his amazement, that the water was alive with fishes. Opinion was divided as to their ori gin ; part of the men thought it was a case of spontaneous generation, while the majority felt positive that they had rained down. The truth was that the rain had soaked down to the im prisoned mud fishes, releasing them from their baked cells and surround ing them once more with water. The air bladders of these fishes are divided into compartments, and have all the requisites of a true lung, and they are as truly amphibious as the frogs and toads. Philadelphia Times.
