Made Trouble for Themselves,
So many shad fishermen's nets have
dotted the Delaware with their cork
lines recently, says the Philadelphia
Record, that numerous conjectures have
been expressed by persons In rowboat*
passengers on steamers as to how
fishermen manage to avoid the loss
of their nets on the propellers or side
wheels of the big boats. The truth of
the matter is that pilots, especially
those on small craft, such as tugs, are
as anxious to steer clear of the nets as
the shad fishers are to have them do so.
Not many days ago a gillnet on
the upper Delaware was in peril of de
struction by au approaching tug
with barges in tow. The owners of the
net signaled lu valu ; the green pilot was
unwilling to alter his course. These
fishers soon had the satisfaction of see
ing that tug ruu slowly ashore, cut loose
from its barges aud tie up while a crew
of very profane men unwound aud out
the gill net from the tng's propeller.
"They've made more trouble for them
selves tbsn for us," significantly chuck
eled the oldest fisherman to his mate.

After Physicians !* Failed, Hood's
Sarsaparilla Perfectly Cured.
Great mental agony is endured by
parents who see their children sufferin'
from diseases caused by impure blood, an
for which there seems no cure. This is
turned to joy when Hood's Sarsapari
resorted to. for it expels the foul humors
from the blood, and restores the dis
eased skin to fresh, healthy brightness.
Read the following from grateful parents :
" To C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. :
"We think Hood's Sarsaparilla Is the most
valuable medicine on the market for blood and
skin diseases. Uur two children suffered terri
bly with the
Worst Form of Eczema
(or two years. We had three physicians In
that time, but neither of them succeeded in
curing them or even In giving them a little
relief. At last wo tried Hood's Sarsaparilla
and in n month both children were per

Conductor James II. Phillips of the
New Castle freight strain caught a fish
the other day that weighed just fifteen
pounds, but before he could land the
handsome fellow it bit off the hook and
swam away. The conductor knew that
the fish weighed fifteen pounds because
it had the scales on.
Conductor Phillips also saw,last week,
a man walking up the railroad with one
side of his face, from ear to nose, as
black as ink. The other side was—black,

The present rate is 40 cents on the $100.
While the interest on the $100,000 loan
will have to be met there are several
ways in which the general expenses of
the coming year will be less than the
last, and some of the members hope that
the differences will about balance them

The Wonderful Moving Sidewalk nl
Chicago.
For those who come by the lake route,
and for others who prefer to sail on land,
there is tha movable sidewalk, seating
40,000 ami extending out on the great
pier 9,000 feet into the lake. The view
of the grounds from the end of the pier
Is superb, and as one can ride as long as
the fancy dictates for one five-ccnt fare,
It ia deservedly popular. The construc
tion of the moving sidewalk with its
endless chain of seats was not alone for
fun, but fact, and to demonstrate .its
wonderful possibilities for the transpor
tatlon of great masses of people. Th#
line, which Is operated by elec
tricity, bas a capacity of 240,
000 passengers per hour. There
are three endless platforms, form
ing a loop at each end. The first is
stationary, the second moves at three
miles an hour, and upon It one steps in a
natural walk, but without experiencing
any jar or shock; from this he steps to
the third platform, moving three miles
faster than the second, or a total of six
miles per hour. This third platform Is
entirely filled with cross seats. The
moving platforms are carried on ordinary

How differently people see things!
Some people have to get ver y near to
see things, others bold them off to look
at them. Some people think the moon
looks as nig as a silver dollar, others as
big as a cartwheel. Aud some people
think the moon is green aud others call
It yellow.
But to those who see through sick
eyes there is no doubt that the world
looks unmistakably blue.
There are people who worry about the
prise of rents next year, foresee trouble
from comets not yet visible, aud
get thin over smashes and crashes that
never come. *
The cause of this uncomfortable state
of mind is very often bad digestion,
nervous depression, or general debility.
Health is hopeful Things looked blue

Paine's celery compound was recom

me to try it. I had only taken a few
doses before I felt relief,
now taken about three bottles, aud feel
