FISH COULD READ
Tale Told by Friend of Publicity
Promoter.
Sturgeon Didn’t Mind Being Shimming
Billboard, but Balked at Advertis
ing Good Fishing at Summer
Resort.
New York.—"l am well acquainted
with a man who ran a summer hotel
on the banks or a stream about an
aeronaut's fly from the city," said the
man who writes the vacation guide
book o! a certain railroad and who is
noted for his chivalry in assisting
truth to rise alter she has been
crushed to earth.
"Along early In tho summer this
gentleman was attracted by a large
sturgeon which breakfasted every
mouing on the retuse which floated
away from the hostelry. Noting tho
ample proportions of this fish, my
friend was struck with a certain idea,
which he proceeded to enlarge upon.
He saw to It personally that a dainty
morsel was set out lor the big stur
geon every day Naturally, the large
fish had friendly feelings toward the
vicinity where he obtained his largess
every day, and it was but a short
while before mine host was almost on
speaking terms with the sturgeon it
was just a step further then to go
out In a boat and pace the sturgeon
over a course of about a mile, all the
while keeping him near the surface of
the river. At the end of each work
out the big sturgeon was rewarded by
something to eat.
"The next step In the process of ed
ucation was to rig up a large sign
setting forth the virtue of my friend's
summer retreat. This was attached
to a light but stout framework made
to fit the buck of the sturgeon. Ob
viously, the big fish, being so well
found by the hotel proprietor, was
not averse to taking a few turns up
and down the river, the sign showing
up In great shape above the edge of
the water, no portion of its propelling
power being visible
"First along the sign read: ‘.Mum
mer’s Summer Retreat Fine Cuisine,
Boating, and Bathing.* But my grasp
ing friend was not satisfied with this.
"One day in early summer I chanced
to drop into the workshop of the ho
tel and found a painter fixing up a
new sign reading as follows; Mum
mer's Summer Retreat—-Fine Cuisine.
Boating, Bathing and Fishing.*
MINER’S 30-YEAR REWARD
Congressman Lewis of Maryland,
Whom He Befriended as a Boy,
Opens New Vista.
Scranton. Pa. —Edward Donnelly,
track layer in the Taylor mine, who
lives In Minooka, is firmly convinced
that It pays to befriend homeless boys,
for his kind actions toward a triend
less orphan thirty years ago have
borne fruit, and the chances are that
be will in a few days retire trim the
mines forever.
Thirty years ago there appeared in
Minooka a young Welsh boy by the
name of Lewis, lie secured employ
ment in the Carr's Patch mine, but.
being the only Welsh boy In the com
munity, his life was made miserable
by his companions until Edward Don
nelly came to bls rescue. Donnelly
constituted himself the champion of
the youth and frequently fought his
battles.
Lewis drifted away from this sec
tion of the country, and that was the
last heard from him until last week,
when Congressman D. J. Lewis of
Maryland reached the city to attend
the meeting of the State Grange.
After addressing the grangers Con
gressmen lx»wls hurried out to Minoo
ka and hunted up Donnelly. The meet
ing was fraught with reminiscences of
the past, for Lewis the orphan boy
and Lewis the congressman proved to
be one and the same.
Before leaving Congressman Lewis
Informed his erstwhile champion that
be should prepare to give up the
mines, \vs he meant to find a more
remunerative as well as a pleasanter
berth foe him in the government serv

The hotelkeeper saw the light

WOMAN PRAY
Brig Stripped of Canvas Blown
Through Florida Keys to Safety
in Bahamas.
New York.—While a hurricane whis
tled through the sails of the little brig
Motley In the Gulf of Mexico till the
last shred of canvas was stripped
from her and she drove onward seem
ingly to destruction. Mrs. Addle Ed
wards, the young wife of the master
of the vessel, went among the mem
bers of the crew to cheer them up.
"1 prayed every day," said she. as
she stepped from the liner Allemanla.
"1 did not believe we would go down.
My little son and 1 have sailed for
six years on the Motley and we had
weathered all kinds of storms. I bad
faith, even, if the sailors had little, and
we came through all right.”
Mrs. Edwards, whose home it. Elm
hurst, L. 1., was on her way to visit
with relatives in Brooklyn.
"My little boy was born on the wa
ter," she continued. "He has been on
the Motley more than be has been
on dry land, and I have sailed into
many ports on the Atlantic ocean,
even to Africa. When the storm came
the child was calm, possibly calmer
than he would have been at our home
in Elmhurst with such a wind blow
ing.

Allentown, Pa.--Allentown has a po

been frozen to death one morning re

Induced by the actions of the dog to

"By the time we reached the Florida
keys we were moving along under
bare poles Then it was dangerous,
for there was no telling when we
might be driven on one of the distant
keys and wrecked. Luckily we es
caped that fate and luckily, too. the
wind blew us almost in the direction
we wanted to go.
"It was almost 21 days and nights
that I was without sufflcient sleep and

most gone the gale blew us into Mid

were a sorry looking crowd when we
arrived, and I was glad the voyage
was over so far as 1 was concerned.”
Washington.—All large cities and
railroad systems in the United States
will unite to form an organization to

Honor Is carried out. President Hern

by some of the largest cities and by
heads of several of the most Import

have hero medals awarded at annual
conventions held In this city.

Among the passengers was a slip
of a girl, the bride of a water tender
of one of the big war ships. She ball
ed from the middle west and it was
her first experience at sea. She look
e<! upon the big world with o;»eD eyed
awe and joyful anticipation of a coun
try girl on her first trip from the
old farm “down home.''
Therefore she knew nothing of the
formalities observed in circles where
gold braid prevails. Learning that 'lra
Thomas, like herself, had a husband
on board one of the vessels In the far
away waters, she rushed up to the
spouse of the rear admiral and gushed
happily:
“I’m awfully glad to meet you.
My husband is an officer on the boats,
too.”
“Yes. he's a water Under," she con
tinued proudly. “And what Is your
husband ?
“He is the commander of the fleet."
Mrs. Thomas smiled kindly.
"Oh. that is very nice, r hope
they're friends,” said the water tend
er's wife.
Mrs Thomas and the bride were
friends on the voyage to the Islands,
say the Wilhelmina's officers.

PIMPLES COVERED HIS BACK
•My troubles began along In the
summer In the hottest weather and
took the form of small eruptions and
Itching and a kind of smarting pain.
It took mo mostly all over my back
and kept getting worse until finally
my back was covered with a mass of
pimples which would burn and Itch at
night sc tuat I could hardly stand It.
This condition kept getting worse and
worse until my back was a solid mass
of big sores which would break open
and run. My underclothing would bo
a clot of blood.
“I tried various remedies and satves
for nearly three years and 1 was not
getting any benefit. It seemed I was
In eternal misery and could not sleep
on my back or lean on a chair. I was
finally given a set of the Cutlcura
Remedies and inside of two weeks I
could see and feel a great relief. I
kept on using Cutlcura Scap, Ointment
and also the Resolvent, and In about
three or four months’ time my back
was nearly cured and I felt like a new
being Now lam In gnod health and
no sign of any skin diseases and I
am fully satisfied that Cutlcura Reme
dies are the best ever made for skin
diseases. I would not be without
them.’’ (Signed) W. A. Armstrong.
