PIOUS JRAUB ”
Young Swindler Victimises Prominent Church People on the Heights. MR. CORFIE! ETECTS HIM When the Crook Pretends to Be Deaf and Dumb Mr. Corfleld Goes at Him With Sign Lang uage. Superintendent George Corfield. of the Bergen Baptist Church Sunday school, at j Madison and Clinton avenues, on the ; ■Heights, reported to the police of the Ccmmur.ipaw avenue station house yes terday that an Intelligent looking but ! poorly clad young man was defrauding numerous, wealthy residents on the ! Heights by means of a bogus letter. The Utter was a plea for funds for a -branch | of the missionary work carried on by the church and signed 'by the Rev. Addison j Moore. It is believed that the follow collected numerous s-ums from certain me-mbers of the church and others. He did not prac ticci the same scheme in every house -he visited. He -produced a second letter -which told of his various afflictions and adding that he was deaf and dumb. At ^ Superintendent Corfieid’s house, opposite j the church on Madison avenue, tfce fel low produced the deaf and dumb letter: Mr. Corfield Immediately began to talk the mute language to him, whereupon the fellow- walked away. Mr. Corfield then notified the police. Patrolman Lockwood began a search of the various* streets to ; locate the imposter, -but could find no j trace of him. It was learned later that many people , had been victimized by both letters, but principally by the letter asking funds for tho church work. The signature of the Rev. Addison Moore had been forged to the- appeal for money. The police are more than desirous of capturing the men who are dup ng the residents on tho Heights by means of these bogus letters. The Rev. G. G. Vogel, pastor of the Emory Methodist Methodist Church or- Belmont avenue, made a complaint to the police a • few weeks ago to the effect that a well dressed individual was making the rounds of his congregation with a letter sup posed to be- signed by him, asking for -funds for the proponed new church biuid Ing soon to be erected. The fellow se- - cured about 1100, as near as can be learn ed. before the police were asked to look him up. The swindler disappeared and I no trace of him was ever discovered. The Rev. E. L. Stoddard, Ph.D., rector : of St. John’s Episcopal Church on Sum- j mit avenue, -has twice warned his con- j gregation not to heed a request for funds \ which some slick crook was making with a fake letter containing the forged signa ture of. the pastor. This fellow- also se- ■ cured many donations before it was j learned that he was working a crooked ; game. At another time, some one supposed to \ be working in the interests of the Organ- j ized Aid Society of Jersey City, secured several sums of money from members of the Bergen Reformed, First Presbyterian and St. John’s Episcopal Church, by means of a bogus letter. The police of the Heights are watching for the swin dlers. TO AID BOER RECONCENTRADOS Messrs. Jacob -Ringle. M. B. iHolmes, S. G.

The directors of the new Bergen Trust Company, to be established on Monticello avenue, on the Heights, have planned to spend about $35,000 in erecting a handsome brick building on the site purchased at Monticello avenue and Brinkerhoff street. Vice President John P. Landrine said yes terday that the building would be a one story structure and handsomely fitted up with modern facilities to carry on the banking business. “We intend to start out ni a modest manner,” said he, “in a temporary office at No. 94 Monticello avenue. The furnish ings will be very plain, for we intend to stay ther only about six months or until our new building is ready for occupancy. I believe that we will be ready for busi ness about April 15. Reports from all sides indicate that the venture is to be a thorough success. “Of the $150,000 of capital stock, not a share remains uncalled for. In fact, I know that many more shares would be subscribed for if necessary. These shares are selling at $150. Some of the directors i control large blocks and have options on [ them. Those who wish to purchase from ! the men holding large amounts* of shares j cannot buy more than $750 worth. Of course, they may purchase less. But, as I said before, not one share will go beg ging, for we have men who will be glad to retain their holdings if no other pur chasers appear. # “We want the people to take an interest in the venture and we feel satisfied that the business men and other prospective depositors will help to make the 'scheme al lthat can be desired.” The business men on the Heights are anxiously awaiting the opening of the new institution. They feel that it is a much needed enterprise and are determined to give it their support BIG FIRMS INCORPORATED Bernstein & Co. and Furst & Co. Hie Articles in the County Clerk’s Office.

IRISH FESTIVAL OF MUSIC Uniqne Fea'ures cf the Gaelic So ciety's Concert in L«nnoi Lvceum The annual musical festival of the Gaelic Society, which will be held at the Lenox Lyceum, New York ort* Tuesday evening, April 1, promises to be of more than usual interest. The fact that the programme will illustrate the development of Irish music from the fourteenth cen tury to the present time lends it an unique character. One of the most interest numoers w n be the rendering on the harp by Mr. John Cheshire of "The March of the Maguire,” a very ancient martial air, never hereto fore played in public in this country. Another feature of musical and his torical interest will be a solo, “De Bharr Xa G-Cnoc,” rendered by Mrs. Coleman, soprano, a march air of the early six teenth century period, and identified by Voltaire as the march air played 'by the pipers of the Irish Brigade at the 'Battle of Fontenoy, 1745. The only number on the programme, not of the recognized Irish schools of music, though composed by an Irishman, will be "Fifth Nocturne in B Flat,” by John Field, which will be rendered on the piano by Mr. O'Donnell. F eld was born in Dublin in 17S2, but his grta: suc cess as a musician was scored on the continent, and he died at Moscow' in 1S37, having been for several years the mu sician of the Russian court. He has been i styled the "Father of the Nocturne," and his works, after a long period of neglect, are now the latest vogue in Irish and even in English musical circles.

A Medicine That Will Cure Cases of Catarrh of Long Standing De serves a Very High Place in the Annals of Medical Discovery. Sueh a Medicine is Peruna. HOUSAJfDS of testimonials are pouring in every day of old cases of chronic catarrh that have re sisted all treatment for years, being promptly and permanently cured by Peruna. These reports do not all come from obscure places, signed by obscure peo ple. A large proportion Of these letters are written by men and women promi nent in business and professional cir cles and many of them well known from ocean to ocean. Colonel John Franklin Waters occu pies a prominent position among the leading trial lawyers of Chicago. He has probably obtained more verdicts against corporations in suits for personal injuries than any man of his age in the United States, and during his practice of over fifteen years he has not lost a single case in the Supreme Courts of Illinois and Missouri. He is a hard worker and has the energy of four men. For a number of years he had been afflicted with chronic catarrh and hav ing recently been thoroughly cured of his old affection, an interview was ob tained with him by one of our reporters in which he gave the following state ment to the public: Chicago, Ili.., Aug. 6,1900. The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, O.: Gentlemen—“It gives me great pleasure to testify to the merits of such a worthy remedy for catarrh as your Peruna. I bad suffered for a number of years from this very dis agreeable disease and bad tried many so-called remedies, but until I used Peruna none had the desired effect. I feci that 1 am perfectly cured and can cheerfully recommend Peruna to any one suffering from catarrh. ”• JOHN P. WATERS, 120 E. Randolph St., Chicago, 111.

The Republican leaders of the Eighth Ward are greatly disturbed over the news that the younger element olt the Ward Club is to make a fight against them at the annual election to bo held on Tues day night. At first they treated the news as an April fool joke, but the work done by the young fellows in canvassing for votes shows that, if there be any joke, it will be on them. The present managers of the club are to go and a set of men will be put in control who will cater to the interests of the younger element, who care little for the political end of the game. George W. Decker will be elected president, and Chairman Edward W. Woolley, of the House Committee, is slated for a back seat. The principal kick is against Wool ley. The opposing element say that he is the obstacle to success, afid that he must go. MUGGINS RESIGNS Leaves City Collector’s Office for Secretaryship of West Hudson Trust Co.

General Manager David Young, of the North Jersey Street Railway Company, has ordered sixty nev,r cars from a prom inent western firm for delivery next month, and Jersey City will get a liberal share of them. Mr. Young has promised to put as many open cars on the Bayonne and Newark lines as possible. Within ten days at least, if the weather is favorable, there will be at least a dozen open cars run ning. More will be added in quick pro cession. During the rush hours of the day there will be cars each marked “smoking car.” Ladies will be delighted to learn that the company will enforce the order con cerning the rear platform. To a commit tee which waited on the general manager yesterday he stated that he realized the manner in which women are pompelled to squeeze through a crowd of men in getting on or off a car and that all he wanted was the moral support of the peo ple to issue an order abolishing the nuis ance.

MAPLES DAMAGED MOST Hardy Elms, Oaks aud Beeches—Expert Advice on Planting and Care. While still busy removing much of the wreckage, or rather breakage, of the trees, caused by the severe sleet storm of February 21 and 22, it seems to me that a few remarks in connection with observa tions made the day after the storm would not be out of place, says Jules Girtanner. of Linden, in the Newark “Sunday Call.” In my thirty-five years of practical ox- ! perience with trees there never was such j destruction as has this* late storm caused. Speaking principally of the territory lying | between Jersey City and Philadelphia, as j traversed by the Pennsylvania Railroad, \ one could readily observe the many points j where, through open tracts of country, i the storm's fury did its greatest work of destruction. With the gale blowing, as it | did, from north ‘by northeast. at the pos- j slble rate of sixty miles per hour, few trees In its path could withstand this fury and the tremendous weight of sleet car ried with'it. Little need be said or repeated here of ! the damage caused to all the telegraph j liner. Along this route to Philadelphia j alone several hundred poles were, snapped | off like matchsiticks. Is it any wonder, I then, that our beautiful trees should not escape? ( The most severe sufferers of our many l varieties of trees growing in this section of the country were the maples. These were mostly silver, red, Norways and sugar maples. The latter are the strong est of all the maples and therefore suf fered least. The trees which best witstood the storm were the elms, oaks, buttonwoods a.id beeches. There are few beeches growing m this section, but they are invariably so-called storm proof. While there is considerable breakage to many of our lof ty elms, I venture to say that, if closely examined, one will find that many of the branches broken have been much weak ened by insects, the borers and other j larvae, which mostly attack tne upper crowns, working their way in the woou downward. It is to be regretted that among our | tree loving people there is not more care | taken in fighting our insect pests ar.d a'.30 | in judicious pruning each year, strength ening and preserving thereby tree growth. This latter work is almost an unknown art. I do not include here the fruit trees, although very little is ever practiced there, compared with what should be done, but the fruit trees have, with the exception of the peach, suffered least, be cause they are usually of much lower growth and stronger crowns than are our shade trees. Taking, for instance, a Car olina poplar, which is one of the fastest growing, but also one of the softest wooded trees, and thereby among the first victims in severe storms, these even could be made storm proof by timely and judicious pruning. Proof of this can be obtained by viewing the well cared for row of trees planted along the driveways of the Catharine Drexel Home at Corn well'?. where not a branchlet was broken, though every other tree in the vicinity surrounding them received nature's blow. As a rule, people will generally select the fastest growing tre-e for shade, and, once planted, it has received the final touch by human hand. The owner may be tempted to put a tree guard up, if it is cn the street, to prevent injury from horses’ nibbling or boys’ pranks of cutting or girdling, but there never is the least though given to the care of a crown of the tree. Speaking of the silver maple as the 1 most used cf all on account of its fast growing habit it could be equally as well strengthened as the poplar by judicious pruning. This maple will usually divide from its terminal shoot when young and grow up into long, erect and tender shoots. As these grow stronger a num ber of smaller branches will lead out from these. Such trees, if allowed to grow* of their own will and without the aid of human hand, will surely meet dis aster, not even waiting for winter’s s!c-:t storm, for any ordinary rain storm through the .cummer will be apt to dls figuro them by twistng and snapping off itr« leng and untrimmed feelers, ; brought down by the weight of rain I soaked foliage. I The conifers suffered, comparatively, — Rheumatism and Liver Complaint SUCCESSFULLY CURED BY DR. DAVID KENNEDY’S Favorite Remedy. Mrs. S. C. Abell, of Roberts avenue, Syracuse,N. Y., says : “Fora number o years I have been troubled with Liver Complaint and Rheumatism. I became so ill i could scarcely walk across the floor. One of our home physicians informed me that I had Heart Trouble also, and began treating tne for that. His treat ment did no good. One day I read of Dr Kennedy’8 Favorite Remedy, which I began taking and improved greatly. I have now taken six bottles, and was never so well in my life. I can say nothing but kind words for Dr. David Kennedy’s Favorite Remedy, to which I owe so much. I know of another case in which Favor ito Remedy restored to health a fr'end, who was thought incurable.” Ur. David Kennedy’s Favorite Remedy is a never failing specific in diseases of i the skin and blood. It restores the dis ordered liver to a healthy condition and corrects constipation. It is a certain cure for the diseases peculiar to women. It cures Scrofula, Sait Rheum, Erysipe las, Nervousness, Loss cf Sleep, or that Worn Out Feeling. In cases of Rheu matism, Dyspepsia. Bright’s Disease, Gravel, Diabetes and Bladder Troubles, it has cured where all else failed.

Surprising Results A Simple Internal Remedy Makes Remarkable Cures of Catarrh. People who have used sprays, inhalers, salves and washes for catarrh and have | found how useless *and inconvenient they are, will be agreeably surprised at results ; foliowing the use of a pleasant, internal remedy 4n tablet form; druggists every- . where admit that Stuart s Catarrh Tab- ' lets, which sell at 50 cents for fu.l sizel I I treatment is the safest, most effective and popular of all catarrh remedies. Nearly all cheap cough mixtures and throat lozenges contain opiates; these cheap medicines give a temporary reiiei, especially with little children by destroy ing nerve sensation; the irritation in throat, which causes coughing is tempor arily removed, not by removing the cau<:e but by deadening the nerves of feelit g the irritation is not felt although it is still there and will promptly return. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is the best remedy to remove catarrhal secretion, whether in the nose, throat or stomach because they are composed of wholesome antiseptics Blood root, Red gum from Eucalyptus tree, etc., when you us£ the<e tablets you know what you are putting into your system and not taking chances with cocaine, opiates or similar poisons found in so many catarrh cures and cough medicines. Dr. Rarnsdell in commenting on catarrh cures says: “1 can heartily recommend Stuart'3 Catarrh Tablets, because they contain no cocaine nor other dangerous drug found in so many advertised catarrh cures. I have known of many cases of long standing catarrh of the head and mroat completely cured oy me aauy use of these tablets for several weeks. One case in particular which 1 could not reach with an inhaler or spray and where the catarrh caused daily headaches and a no ticeable loss of hearing was entirely cure ’ by this harmless but effective remedy.” Dr. Wain wright says: “I never hesitate to prescribe Stuart’s Catarrh Tablets for catarrhal headaches and catarrhal deaf ness because I know them to be perfectly safe for child or adult and have seen many remarkable cures resulting from their regular daily use; because they are advertised and sold in drug stores is no reason why any good physician should not use them because we should seize upon the means of cure wherever found.” Stuart’s Catarrh Tablets are especially valuable for catarrhal colds in children because they are pleasant to the taste and may be used freely to break up se vere colds and croup at the very begin ning. _ least of all. and yet people wonder why such densely crowned evergreens could escape. This is because in damp weather their branches become riged. not at aii like those of decidious trees, with tne‘: watery mass of cell growth. They are made tenacious by their resinous cell con struction and are better able therefore to hold up weight. It is hoped that such a sterm may not visit us again in a life time; however, no one can tell. In the meantime I would like to suggest to persons w'ho are oblig ed to set out new trees to plant of the hardier varieties and give more care to these after they are planted. With good and judicious pruning many of the in jured trees can be reclaimed, although it will take several years to regain and es tablish the former symmetry of the erow'n. When pruning one should never allow' an ax or hatchet in the tree. When branches need cutting off use only a sharp anad weil set saw. oiling it fre quently to avoid binding by the green wood, and care should be taken never to allow the under side of tfie bark to tear dow’n from a partly severed branch. Speaking of those trees most storm proo, everybody know’s the stately elm. It is a fast growing tree and one of the finest, but owing to'the ravages of the elm beetle It has been much discarded by the public In general and in parks. The beetle, however, is not quite so num erous as several years ago. and in many actions of the country it has almost en- ] ■ rely disappeared. If all would or could j vork in concord to fight this pest we | could reclaim one of the stateliest trees. | The oak is a much slower growing tree, but if planted well is much to be recom mended. The tree is just now greatly in demand in the many pretty suburbs of Philadelphia, wher it is grown success fully. Its foliage is as beautiful in au tumn as the sugar maple. The sugar mn ale, the strongest of all our maples, if iroperly cared for, will never fail to com pensate its owner with its glorious utumn coloring. The buttonwood is fast mowing, but owing, to its large and | "preadlr.g habit Is less adapted for city treets, but in suburban places gives nuch satisfaction. The linden trco has to a great extent , urprisingly escaped the fury of the torm. It is a very fast growing tree, ore especially the American linden, ard ’ erefore also is its wood quite soft and liable. As a city tree its symmetry and liage are greatly to be desired.
