Every barrel of beer pays nn Inter nal revenue tax of $1, of whioh about SO cents are spent In pensions. Each banel contains four kegs, and each keg about 100 glasses. Therefore, a man has to drink a whole keg of beer before he pays 25 cents Into the treas ury, of which but 7J cents go for pen slons. He pays the barkeeper 5 for his beer before the pension fund geta 7 cents. This Is the way the "people are taxed to death to pay pensions." The Internal revenue tax on whisky is 90 cents a gallon, of which about 30 cents goes to tho pension fund. The average prlco of whisky is 10 cents a drink, and there are about iO stiff drinks in a gallon. A man 1JU i as to pay the barkeeper fully $20 be fore hecontrlbutes 30 cents to the pen sion fund. This is tho wny tho people are "taxed to death to pay pensions." Tho tax on cigarettes is 50 cents per 1,0(0, of which about 15 cents goes to tho pension fuud. A dude has to smoke three of these a day for nearly n year, and pay the tobac conist $10 for them before he con trib the support of the brot ans of the war. This is the way "the people are taxed to death to pay pensions." Tbo celebrated imported Anchor I'sin Expellor costs but 50 cents a bottle.

Noway Lottar From a Reliable Correspondent. Isaac Limp, at one time 1 & R. train dispatcher at this place, but now a rosldcnt of licrgan Point, N. J., was b visitor tf town on Tuesday. Ills many friends were dollghted to sco him. Miss Mary Colllhan left 6n Thursday for Philadelphia, whoro Bho will mako het homo with her sister. Tho 1 and fair will closo to-night after a very successful season. John Connors, who wa9 severely injured in tho mouth by being struck with it bruko lever at Lawrence colliery some time ago, is home from tho hopitl. Considerable trouble was experienced in starting the electric lights on Tuesday night, owing to several of tho lamps bolng out. of odor. Tho trouble has boon remedlod. A special meoting of Council was held last weok, at which it was decided to take 15 or moro electric lights to bo distributed among the different wards. At tho sarao meeting Contractor O. R. Eborlo, repre senting tho Ashland, Shenandoah and Mahanoy City Electric Railway Company, presented a petition asking fir right of way through tho borough. This was granted, but tbo consent of tbo trustees of the Oirard Estate has yet to be obtained. It is hoped that thero will bo no difficulty in gotting it as tho proposod railway would bo a great improvement tending to an Incroase in business and prosperity In all towns through which it passos. ' Many of our merchants and business men are having their stores and offices wired for tho incandes ont oleclrio lights. William Smith, who has been night watchman at tho" P. & R. station here, has beon promoted to the position of xcigk mastor at the St. Nicholas weigh scales.

A Protest Against the Jewish Ex iloB Tho Coming Borough Eloo tion Something Republicans Should Make a'Study. A few days ago I uttorod a mild prolet against tho influx of Jows into this country under tho direction of tho Jowish Alliance. It appears that tho Alliance has appointed agonts throughout the couutry to secure employment for the refugees. Max Rooso is tho Snonandoah agent. A few days ago throe Jows called Upon Rceeo and ho se cured employment for them in the mines Ono of them has already thrown up the work, claiming it was too hard. lie of forod his services to ono of his countrymen who is ongaged in the clothing business for $5 per month and board, ilitx Roeso, when asktd if the rofugcos intended to be come peddlers said, "No, si i no peddling will be porrnittod. If they don't wotk. in tho mines they can starve." Tho approach of wintor should remind tlio:0 in authority tu huvo all flro plugs put in first class condition, so as to prevent freezing and have them ready foi use in case of a sudden call. V Work on the Lithuanian church, at tho corner of Cborry and Jardin streets, which is to bo n magnificent structure, is being pusnod rapidly. It can bo llnlshed none too soon, as Bobbins' opera houso is packed to suffocation overy Sunday, when tho congregation holds servicos thero. The danger of having a hall with but one means of entrance and exit packed iu such a manner is by no means slight. Whon tho gamo season opened we wero led to beliovo that the killing of partridges, phoasants, rabbits, etc., would bo immonso and that our hunters would roturn from trips with bugs bulging with game, but up to date wo havo boen disappointed. A band ot sportsmen roturnod to town tho other evening with empty bags. "No gamo7" sskod a reporter of ono of thern 'Toker; that's all," was tho reply. V Well, Turkey Run is to havo electric lights and bo a real, live, adjunct of tho town, That's good. Tho peoplo on the bill have beon exceedingly pationt and need all that Council has given tlmm. The road to Turkey Run is a dangerous ono for man or beast, particularly at night, and it is surprising that many havo not mot with accidents while traveling to and from tbo placo For wookspast numerous cows havo been reported lost or stolen in this vicinity, I learnod something yeetordjy that may throw some, light upon the disappearances. Thero are owr two hundrod Italians lo cated ut tbo Shenandoah City colliery strippings and I learn that they aro in tho habit of driving cows from tho bushes in that neighborhood and slaughtering them fur tho meat. Tho other day soveral Ital ians took a cow from tho bush, placed a bag over her lioad and knocked ber down. Thoy then whipped out thoir kulvos and in a few minutes wero carrying chunks of the carcass to their rospectivo huts. V Ono of tho Shamokin papers publishes an account of tho thrilling oxperienco of Loon Wolf, the sixtoon-yoar.nld son of Adolpk Wolf, formerly of this town, but now of Shamokin. Loon had beon hired to drive a laundry wagon and some cue told him that a family named Lawless bad some work for him. When Loon entered the houso a woman named Mrs. Sbelock locked tho door, whllo Mrs. Lawless or dered the boy to hold up his hands. Loon did so and was rolieved of $1 71, but not until tbo two womon knocked him down and ovorpowored him. Tho women wero arrested and settled tho caso by refunding the stolon money and paying all costs. ... My remarks concerning Citizens' party a few days ago has stirred up several of our prominent politicians and tbo question: "Shall a Republican or Citizons' ticket bo placed in the field next spring?" is airoady undor discussion. To my mind tbo day of usefulness of tho Citizons' party is past. As an Instrument tor gain by tbo Demo crats It is as a first clas article, and It is liko a mill (tune around tbo nocks of tho Re publicans. Democrats and Republicans claim the right to take part In the Citizons' primaries and tbo Democrats always manage to fix tho dates for holding their primarios tiflor tho dates fixed for the others. When the Citizens' primaries aro held they are paotod with Democrats and, frequently, thero havo beon more Demo crats than Republicans In attendance Having flxod tho Citizens' party ticket tho Democrats then go to their own primaries and nominate a ticket calculated to knock down that which thoy belpod to build In tho othor primaries. Somebody remarks that, "Thero are several prominent Democrats in this town who will veto for the Citizens' ticket, but will not support a Republican borough ticket." True. But must wo support h Citizens' ticket and court doleat year in and year out to accommodate these gentle men ? The results of the last two spring oloctions showed clearly that tho Citizens' party is nothing but a humbug and, at bost, Is only a weapon the Republicans pi co in the hands of the Democrats for their own laughter. m V Of what uso havo tho soveral prominent Democrats who will veto fur u Citizens' ticket, but won't vote for a Republican local tickot, been to tho Citizens' party the past few years? V Lot us taho tho past threo years. In 1889 the Democrats said to themsolvos : "This year we'll elect our Chlof Burgess and Tax Collector and give tho Citizens' tho tail end the High Constableship anil Borough Auditorship," so they elected Mulbolland and Schmidt and allood David Parry and J. S. Williams to go in. In 1890 tho Democrats said: "Wo'll hold the bead office and wedgo in a borough auditor," and they did re-olecting their Chief Burgess nd Tax Collector and putting Doyle on tho board of borough auditors, leaving tho High Constabloshi and a borough auditor, to pick what conso lution they could from them. Then 1891 arrived and tbo Democrats put their beads togother again and concluded, "Wo have held the Chief lturgoss lor two yearn, eo wo'll lot tho Citizons' party havo it thin year, but for tho sacrifice wo must have a good return," and they got it. They sur rendered tho ofllco of Chief Burgess, but swallowed tho Tax Oollectorship, tbo High Constableship and made the mombots of tho board of Loroueh auditors two Demo crats against one Republican. ... Now where, during tho past three years, have tho prominent Democrats who could not allow themselves to vote for a Repub lican borough ticket display thoir strongth? I feel satisfied that had tho Republicans of the borough held primaries, as Republican primaries, and shut tho doors against th Democratic primary packers they could accomplish as much, and in all probability much more, than has boon accomplished during the past throe years under tho ban nor of tbo Republican party. ... I am convinced that u Republican stands as good chance to bo elected in a borough contest under tho Republican banner as bo does undor tbo Citizuns'. Whon Lossig ran for Chief Burgoss last year and was olocled ho was rocognized as tho Republi can candidate In fact the term "Citizens' " dropped with tbo close of the primaries and tho two tickets wero looked upon as and callod Democratic and Republican. ... Let tho Citizen farco bo brought to a closo. Let the Republicans resolve to hold their own primarios for their own benefit and, with strong men to tho front, lot thorn mako a fight under their truo colors. Thoy certainly cannot faro worse than tho Citi zens' party has the past threo yoars and its chances for bettor success aro by no means few. It Should bo in Every Houso, J. U. Wilson, 871 Clay St., Shurpiburg, Pa., says ho will not bo without Dr. King's Now Discovory for Consumption, Coughs and Colds, that it cured his wife who was threatened with Pneumonia after an at tack of "La Grippe," whon various othor remedies and several physicians bad done her no good.
