WORKMAN DIES,
RESULT OF FALL
When Elmer Barrup Strikes
Hard Ground Base of His
Skull Is Fractured
EmlgSvUle, Pa., Dec. 18.—Elmer
Barrup, aged 36, a former resident
of Harrisburg wlio came here sev
eral months ago to work for the
Kmlgsville Quarry company, died as
the result of an unusual accident
last evening. Yesterday forenoon
Barrup, with two other workmen at
the quarry, was carrying iron pipe
from one place to another. One of (
the workmen slipped and fell. The
increased weight thrown upon Bar- .
rup and his companion caused
Barrup to fall. His impact with
the hard ground caused a fracture
at the base of the skull, although
his head did not strike the ground.
He was taken to his home here in
an unconscious condition and ling
ered until last evening when he
passed away without regaining con
sciousness. His widow and five chil
dren survive. Barrup has relatives
in Harrisburg.
While Woman Shops
House Is Badly Burned I
Waynesboro, Pa., Dee. 18.—Firei
of unknown origin badly damaged
a frame house in West Fourth
street, occupied by Luther Kemper
and Granville Shaffer. The loss
will amount probably to $1,500.
The conflagration started on the
Kemper side of the house and was
discovered by Mrs. Charles Baker.
Mrs. Kemper was down town on a
shopping tour at the time. During
.her absence an explosion was heard
by neighbors and this it is thought
resulted in a lire that practically
gutted the lirst floor of their side of
tho house. The upper story was
unharmed. The Shaffer side of the |
"house was scarcely damaged.

Cell-O-San Ends Sore Throat
and Stiff Neck In One Night
In Many Cases, Says Specialist —Tells How New Dis
covery Fights Inflammation and Often Gives Almost
Instant Relief For Colds and Catarrh
Many people any that Cell-O-
San is inngle ami Hint It works
by some mysterious charm. No
such claim enn he iiitKle, for al
though its notion may appear
marvelous, the results must he
attributed to recently discov
ered selentltle principles, the
Importance of which have been
cstublishcd lieyond doubt.
Physicians who
have used this new
discovery are amaz
ed at the startling
results. Their pa
tients are healed al
most as if by some
magic or miracu
lous power. Yet
Oeli-O-San is not a
drug and is abso-.
lutely harmless,
tven to a child. It is
offered to the public with a confi
dence that nothing like it has ever
before been placed within their
reach. It usually relieves cold in two
minutes and often ends it overnight.
With sore throat, stiff neck and na
sal catarrh the effects are frequently
so rapid and eNtraordlnary that
users of Cell-O-San have declared that
the seemingly impossible has been ac
complished. Cell-O-Ran acts upon
living cells which have become "sick"
and set up the inflammations, thai is

; Applicants For Insurance
Often Rejected
i Judglhg from reports from drug
i gists, who are constantly in direct

I preparation that has been very suc

tions. The mild arrd healing influ
ence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is
soon realised. It stands the highest
1 for its remarkable record of success.
An examining physician for one
;of the prominent I.ife Insurance
' f'ompanles, in an interview of the
| subject, made the astonishing state-
I mer.-t that one reason why so many
j applicants for insurance are rejected
i is because kidney trouble is so coni-
I moil to the American people nnd
j the large majority of those whose
i applications are declined do not
I even suspect that they have the d'.s-
I ease. It Is on sale at all drug stores
1 In bottles of two sizes medium and

However if you wish llrst to tost
, this great preparation send ten cents

FAMOUS OLD BUCK
SURVIVES SEASON
Game Warden of Mifflin Says Deer Killed by Hunter Is Not
"Barney," Who Has Crippled Leg; Animal Brought
Down Has 18 Prongs, But Four Good Legs
I-cwistown, Pa., Dec. IS.—"Bar
ney," the famous old buck of the
Seven Mountain region, still roams
at large; at least this is what Game
Warden John J. Sluutterbach, who
has been traveling over this entire
region during the season just closed,
said to-day. It was reported that
George Switzer had brought down
the old deer, but Slautterbach says
the deer killed by Switzer was not
old "Barney." Switzer's deer was
an old one, having 18 prongs, nino
on either side, with all of them per
fect and with a spread large enough
to allow a man' to stand between
their points. When dressed the deer
weighed but 134 pounds.
Had it been "Barney"' it would
have cleaned 300 pounds, hunters
say. Besides, "Barney" has a crip
pled leg. Switzer's buck had four
good ones. A large posse spent the
final day of the season following the
light skift of snow in the hope that
they might get sight of the old deer,
but they failed.
According to Slautterbach. the
number of deer killed, iq Mifflin
county alone reached 125, as against
74 killed last seasbn. Three does
were killed, although five were re

I Easy to Make This I
Pine Cough Remedy ;
Thousand* of families swear by Its f
prompt multn. lnrxprnilrr, f
uud wives about *3.
'VOMOHO^tsOMOHOMOMiMOMS
Vou know tluit pine is used in
nearly all prescriptions ami remedies
for coughs. 'J'ho reason is that pine
eontains several peculiar elements that
have n remarkable effect in soothing
and healing the membranes of the
throat and chest.
Pine eough syrups are combinations
of pine and syrup. The "syrup" part
is usually plain sugar syrup.
To make the best pine cough remedy
that money can buy, put s'/i ounces
of I'inex in a pint bottle, and fill up
with home-made sugar syrup. Or you
can use clarified molasses, honey, or
corn syrup, instead of sugar syrup.
Cither way, you make a full pint—more
than you can buy ready-made for three
times the money. It is pure, good
and very pleasant—children like it.
You can feel this take hold of a
cough or cold in n way that means
business. The cough may be dry,
hoarse and tight, or may be persist
ently loose from the formation of
phlegm. The cause is the same—in
flamed membranes—and this Pinex and
Syrup combination will ston it—
usually in 24 hours or less. Splendid,
ton, for bronchial asthma, hoarseness,
or any ordinary throat, ailment.
Pinex is a highly concentrated com
pound of genuine Norway pine ex
tract. and is famous tho world over
for its prompt effect upon coughs.
Beware of substitutes. .Ask voui
druggit for "2'/a ounces of Pinex"
with d : reetions. and don't accept any
thing else. Ounrnnteed to give abso
lute satisfaction or money refunded

PLACE ELECTRIC
CAR ON BRANCH
Brill Model Is Being Tried at
Night Between Waynes
boro and Chambersburg
Waynesboro, Pa., Dec. 18.—Since
late night train service on the
Waynesboro branch of the Pennsyl
vania railroad was resumed, due to
the luel restrictions being removed,
the company has been trying out the
new Brill company electric car,
equipped with the Edison patent
storage battery. The storage ca
pacity is 130 miles per single charge.
Ihe car is divided into three com
partments, passenger, smoker, and
baggage, and will seat fifty pas
sengers, with room for a dozen more
in smoking compartment.
The ear is to be kept in service
lor several evenings to determine
whether it performs the duties
called for as adequately as the reg
ular train. . It' it does it will pron
ably become a llxture with the ex
ception of Saturday nights, when
the business naturally increases to
demand a full train.
The operation of the car requires
three men, motorman, conductoi
and baggageman, a saving of one
(fireman) over the steam system.
