KNOWING HOW PAYS A Captain On the Ohio Speaks On a Personal Matter. When it became compulsary in the States of Ohio and West Vir ginia for captains and other officers of steam craft to go up for exami nations and take out papers licens ing them to bold positions, a can didate presented himself for exam ination whose hoosier- like appear ance betokened he knew very little about navigation and less about the propelling force of a steam boat. Looks are often deceptive and in this case the hoosier answered quickly and correctly every ques tion asked him. One of the ex aminers, a good natured official, jokingly said: "My man you have done remarkably well, answer this: supposing you were out in the mid dle of the Ohio in a steambcat and your pumps were in good working order but would not draw water, what would you dc?" The answer came as quickly as any of the pre preceeding: "I would look over the side of the boat and see if the Ohio was dry." Now this old anecdote has nothing whatever to with Capt. B. F. Goodwill, of 48 Penn street, Wheeling, W. Va , master and pilot, class No r, a sailor who Las handled all kinds of craft on the Ohio and Mississippi for the last 30 years. We merely introduce him in this manner so that if the reader is annoyed in the same way as the captain he will know what to do. The Captain says. "I have en joyed good health all my life with the exception of a weakness in my kidneys which first bothered me four or five years ago. In damp changeable weather and when ex austed from long standing at the wheel, I would suffer from a weak ness and dull aching across my loins. This was accompanied by a severe urinary weakness caus ing me considerable inconvenience. I would sometimes if slightly over come or rising quickly, become quite dizzy, but in a few minutes it would pass off. I was troubled a good deal this last spring and having seen Doan's Ointment so highly recommended I procured a box at a drug store and used them according tD directions. I felt their effect very quickly and in a short time I was entiiely free of the trouble. I have made several trips since taking them and the condi tions that previously affected me produced no b id effects. I can honestly recommend Doan's Kid ney Pills for all cases of kidney and bladder weakness. Doan's Kidney Pills for sale by p.ll dealers. Price 50c. Mailed by Foster-Milburn Co. Buffalo, N.

Attended i A flairs That has Come oil This Season? Ever y thing Free at the Large Grounds and Fine Music En. livened All and Made the Honrs Merry. The fifth annual picnic of the Eureka-Buckeye pipe lines has been held and, like others before it, has been a success, grand and flattering. The boys of this organization is sued invitations several weeks a?o, and this was a signal for all who were so fortunate in securing them to prepare to enjoy the day. The train carrying the Sistersville dele gation It ft at 9:30 yesterday morn ing and consisted of twelve coaches, all of which were filled to overflow ing with people lrom this place. It was intended to reserve four coaches for patrons who would be taken on down the road, but the Sistersville crowd was so large that the dcors of the re serve cars were thrown open and at once filled. Owing to the high condition of tha river it was neces sary to take the party to Marietta where it was transferred to the grounds by ferry boats and by the time that the last crowd had been landed it was 1 o'clock. Arriving at the island the stranger is im pressed with the elaborate prepar ations that has been made for his comfort. From the steamer land ing are wide stairs, broad and spa cious and leading to the grounds. At the head of the column, sus pended from the trees, a large penant bearing the inscription "Eureka Buckeye," floated grace fully just above the heads of the guests. Business was religated to the back ground and six thousand people swarmed over the capacious grounds and sought diversion from cares by dancing or lounging under the inviting shade of tall trees. Then the merry-go-round claimed the attention of some while the boys who put the pins up in the ten pin alleys were kept busy all day. On each ticket was a coupon lor ice cream. These were checked at the grounds and entitled the holder to ice cream, like everything else there, was free of charge. The tickets were $1.50 and this covered everything. The Marietta band and orchestra furnished a fine article of music during the entire day and notwith standing the excessive heat, danc ing was carried on with a shocking disrtgard for collars, cuffs and shirt waists. It is commendable to be able to say that not a quarrel oc curred on the grounds during the entire day. It was, truly, as one man was heard to say, ' the most agreeable and sociable crowd one could expect to find." The spa cious dancing pavilion was lighted with electric lights as were the grounds throughout, and as it grew dark and the orchestra struck up a slow waltz it reminded one of a fairy scene, as the daintly dressed maidens attended bv their chaper ons strolled idly about the grounds. Marietta and Parkersburg were well represented. Mrs. N. B. Yeardley, of the latter place, chaperoned a select and pleasant party of young people. They were the Misses Shaw, Yeardley, Dare, Drake of Parkersburg, and Miss Ogdin, of St. Marys. Alco Messrs. Jones, De Pue, Sunders and Veon, ot Parkersburg. The following are the boys of the pipe lines who had charge of the affair and who deserve the greatest credit for the very able manner in which everything was conducted: H. C. Scrafford, general superin tendent of the southwest; C. D. Mc Vey, district superintendent, of Sis tersville; Nelse Moore, superintend ent of the southwest division; Cal Clark ; district foreman of the Cairo division; J. P. Sweeney, oi the Seep Purchasing agency in this city. Fred Cal'ahan, E. A. Aggas; John Campbell, Fred Neill, L. Page, P. E. Donnelly, E. S. Wright and H. L. Scrafford. The train returning from the grounds arrived here last night at 1:30, carrying a tired but thoroughly pleased and appreciative crowd. A Plejumnt On tin it Rear Admiral F. D. McCoy and Captain Eb. Talbot, of the Cruiser Orion, now employed in ferrying people, teams, and so on to and from the "Greatest Town on Earth," yesterday evening invited about fifty of their friends to take a trip on their fine cruiser from this city to Matamoras, Ohio, and return, being a free trip, of course we took it in. The steamer after a pleasant and quick run, landed the party at Matamoras. It has been some ten years or less since we have visited our neighboring town. We notice many changes since then. The old business part of the town looks very badly. The buildings need painting and there is evidently in this part of the town a change that shows retrogression. A few thousand pounds of pa nt, some re modeling of windows, doors, and *o forth would make the town much handsomer. In the old p.irt of the town there have been but few changes in the way of new build ings, but there has been a natural wear and tear that shows anything but prosperity. Going out to what was live sub urbs a few years since, we find that many substantial and pretty homes have been built during the past five years. These homes are sur rounded with beautiful yards filled with flowers and trees, and the owners seem to be happy and con tented. Evidently the old town must brighten up and get a move on it or the new suburbs will soon be in the lead. The boat left Matamoras after the guests had spent an hour in their neighboring town and arrived home all safe and pleased with their little outing at 9.30. We are re quested to return thanks to the gentlemen who made the trip possi ble, and all express the wish that it may be repeated at least once or twice during the comiug hot months. THE Foricril rromlscN (o l?e h Miimtw-Kvcrylliiuc Warkliif Xlcely. The celebration July 4th prom ises to be a successful affair. Every* thing is working nicely to that end. Many people from neighboring towns have expressed their inten tion of attending, and a big crowd is looked for. The New Martinsville firemen will be here and it is highly proba ble that Bellaire's fire laddies will attend also. There will be large delegations from Middlebourne and inland towns. t>? ? SMALL BOY. Badlj Hart bj m CrkImm WbNlnai. Yesterday evening Frank Golden a small boy whose parents reside on Water street was badly hurt by being run over by a careless wheel man. The little fellow was playing in the street when the unknown fellow carelessly dashed into him, knocking him for a time insensible. He has recovered to such an ex tent that his physician claims he will recover. There is entirely too much cf this dashing, daredevil riding on the streets and the police should take the matter in hand. Bad management keeps more peo-j pie in poor circumstances than aoj| other one cause. To be successful one must look ahead and pla^i ahead so that when a favorable op portunity presents itself he is reacjy to take advantage of it. A little forethought will also save much ex pense and valuable time. A pru dent and careful man will keep a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Chol era and Diarrhoea Remedy in the house, the shiftless fellow will wait until necessity compels it and then ruin his best horse going for a doc tor and have a big doctor bill to pay, beside?; one pays out 25 cents, the other is out a hundred dollars and then wonders why his neighbor is getting richer while he is getting poorer.
