The Republi cans, having no candidate for justice of the peace, which is the principal office to be filled, are not disposed to take much interest in the general result. In the wards the Democrats are unassailable in the Fifth and Sixth, while the Repub licans have majorities in the others. Under the circumstances the voters will likely be spared the annoyance which has been given them in previous local campaigns. Charles C. Boczkowskl, who was given the empty honor of a Republican nomi nation for justice of the peace and who could not have his name printed on the ballot because the convention was held too late, announced himself on Saturday as an independent candidate for the office, but has since reconsidered the matter and has withdrawn. Stanley Albright, one of the Republi can nominees for council in tho Sixth ward, states that his name was placed on the ticket without his consent and that be is still a Democrat. Bind Officers Elected. St. Ann's Parish Band yesterday elected the following officers: President—Edward Brogan. Vice president—Frank McDonald. Recording secretary —Condy Johnson. Financial secretary —Frank McKin ley. Treasurer—Patrick J. Duffy. Leader—Leo McDonald. Teacher—A. P. May berry. Trustees—James Quiun, Thomas F. Welsh, Frank McKinley. Librarian—Frank Gallagher.

Grover's City drug •tore. TO CURE THE GRIP. Advice of a Fttuioun Phynlcian. First and foremost, REST. Take care of yourself. Your already weakened nerves want rest, and must have It. If the attack is severe, go to bed and remain there. More fatalities result from neglect of this precaution than from any other cause. Eat sparingly. Your digestive organs are in no condition to take care of large quantities of food. Drink plenty of pure, cold water. It allays the fever, stimulates the kidneys to action and opens up the pores of the skin. Keep tho bowels open with Dr. Miles' Nerve and Liver Pills. Take three dose 9 of Dr. Miles' Nervine per day, and If you cannotsleep take an extra dose at bedtime. To further con trol the fever, and to overcome tho pe culiar aches and pains of the grip, use Dr. Miles' Pain Pills. They act quickly and effectually, and no bad effects result from their use. These remedies have been thoroughly tested more than a million times, and their efficiency is thoroughly established. They never fail to give relief. Dr. Miles' Remedies can be found at any drug store, and they are sold 011 a positive guarantee that flrst bottle or package beobiJtS Or money refunded. ROUND THE REGION. At the bedside of his dying mother, whotn he had nursed for seven months, John Dinan, a soldier, was arrested at Wilkesbarre, placed in irons, and sent to Fort Slocum to stand trial as a desert er. Dinan, soon after joining the regular army last June, learned of his mother's serious illness, and asked for a discharge. He received no reply, and therefore deserted last October. Since his desertion Dinan has nursed his mother, and the physicians say she has suffered a severe relapse since the ar rest. Persons who suffer from indigestion can not expect to livelong, because they can not eat the food required to nourish the body and the products of the undi gested foods they do eat poison the blood. It. is important to cure indiges tion as soon as possible, and the best method of doing this is to use the pre paration known as Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. It digests what you eat and re stores all the digestive organ* to perfect health. Grover's City drug store. Edward Snell, of Weatherly, who took part in the recent Chinese cam paign, has been honorably discharged from the service and returned houie today.

De- VVaele, who has passed the three-score milestone, had a time with the grip; but when seen at bis home in Roscommon, Mich., the other day, ho said Dr. Miles' Nervine was what cured him. Paymaster Bernstein, of the Temple Coal and Iron Company, wounded John Dougherty with a revolver bullet, be cause, it is alleged, the latter tried to break into the office of the Harry E. colliery, after having been refused pay which was not yet due. Pepsin preparations often fall to re lieve indigestion because they can di gest only albuminous foods. There is one preparation that digests all elasses of food, and that is Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. It cures the worst cases of in digestion and gives instant relief, for it digests what you eat. Grover's City drug store. William McGarvoy, Thomas Burns, James Early and James Gallagher, of Beaver Meadow, who struck at Evans 1 colliery last fall and who, it is alleged, interfered with workmen, were fined $25 on Saturday by the Carbon county court, ordered to pay the costs of the suit and spend three months in jail.
