The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schbmck's Pulmonic Sybcf, Sch buck's Sbs Weed Tonic, and Schenck s Mandrake Pill,b and if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a needy cure is effcted. To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenk, of Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled sucess In the treatment of pulmonary disease. The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matters In the lungs; nature throws it off by easy expect oration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it iff, the patient has rest and the lungs begin to heal . To enable the pulmonic eyrup to do this, Schenk's Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck'a Man drake Pills act on the liver, removing all obstruc tions, relax the gal i, bladder, the bile starts freely and the liver is soon recieved. . Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative; the alkali of which it is composed mixes wi:h the food and prevents sonring. It as sists the digestion by toning np the stomach to a healthy condition, so mat the food and the Pul monic Syrup will make good blood; then the longs heal, and the patient will surely get well if care Is taken to prevent fresh cold.

Deau will not say anything about the wrongs of which Oryille D. Jewett com plained. "You may rest assured." said Coroner Ellinger, yesterday, "that the theory of suicide is absurd. It is the creation of men whose immagination is greater than their regard for Itruth. For instance, take the porter, : Thomas A. J ackson. He told me he was sitting at his breakfast when he heard the explosion; farther than that he said he knew nothing. He now comes forward and says he saw George W. Jewett and Orville D. Jewett in a death grapple. I asked him how he could have seen that, and he said: "The moment the explosion occuried 1 rushed down stairs and saw smoke coming . from the offices of Jewett & Sons, I thought the place was afire and I ran to (he hall door which leads into the rear room. The class panels of the door were broken and I thrust my head through. 1 6aw Orville D. and George W. Jewett in a deadly con flict.' Ellinger said: 'You told me you knew nothing of the tragedy, but now you say you saw these men just at the time of the explosion. Since theD have you been approached by anyone who offered money to you to give this statement? Jackson, in a muttering voice said, v nat l tola you the day of the occurrence was correct. I do not believe Orville Dewey Jewott shot himself." The coroner, later.said: ''I would place all these men under arrest but should I do so I am afraid they would become more reticent than they now are. That Orville D. Jewett committed suicide is simply absurd. He could not have fired the shots even if he had the intention of doing it. A few days will develop this matter, think I am on the right track." New York. April 9. lhe coroner questioned Mr. Dean at his houso to-day, concerning the recent exDlosion. Put od tained substantially onlv a reiteration of the statement that his, Dean's, recollection of the affair was indistinct and vague The coroner also took the statement of Tainter who said he saw Orville Jewett shoot himself. sonally or by letter, can do so at his principal office rnnaoeipnia. every corner of Sixth and arch Sta., Monday.

A Card for Rational Readers, Ir rational people always reject good advice, and in nothing is folly more frequently conspicious taan in ignoring precautions necessary for the retention of health. Forecast, on the other hand, is a notable characteristic of the rational, and it is the exercise of this quality which we would suggest to them. Protect the system against diseases which fasten upon the debilitated, the nervous and the dyspeptic by bracing the physique, regulating the stomach, bowels and liver, and banishing despondency with the purest and most efficient of botanic invigorants, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. That these effects fol- ow its use, and that it prevents as well as annihilates intermittent and remittent fevers' are facts established by indispu table tvedence. ioenioy the twin bles sings of "a sound mind and a sound body" in all their plentitude, try a course of this sterling medicine.

Two families, living at the foot of the bluff, tn the hollow south ai the new Swedish Lutheran church, have occasioned the police and neighbors considerable an noyance by their quarreling and hair pul'iiog. If this doesn't cease soon, they will furnish a first-class police item for the papers. fi&Epp's new European restaurant opened up to-day, at noon, with nattering prospects ot success, lhe tatles were filled with the elite of the city; that class of customers who have long felt the need of just such a place. The bill of fare was uuexceptable, every dehoacy that the market affords being dished up in a first class wanner. The "European" may be safely classed among the best restaurants in the state. It certainly is not excelled, if equalled, in the three cities. . jSfcgC"nndtirable dissatisfaction is evinced by the defeated faction with the election fr school directors at school house No. 1, in district No. 1. There were 83 votes pulled. John Cornwall received 64 votes for long term, and Frank Sunner- smith 76 for short term; Robt. Young 1' and Geo. i lickinger 2. 1 here was no lr regularity as to the posting ot notices or in any other way. The election was called by C. h. Hemenway clerk of the district. and three notices pofted; one at schoo house No. 1, one at Rupee's store and one at Roseborough's store. The insinua tions thrown out about notices and bal lot box originated with the parties who were fairly beaten at the election. Realizing that appearances add greatly to success in business our worthy police magistrate had his office repainted and papered throughout J he walls in stead of the diney beatneared whitewash have been painted in light cheerful colors to within 5 feet of the floor, and the remainicB space papered in pauels.
