annulled because of the absence of
cases to try. This is the second
time in six months that Criminal
Court in Montour county has been
postponed for the same cause, the
January term having been likewise
found unnecessary. 1 he postpone

means that the aggregate period in
which no criminal term has teen

By a vote ot 66 to 1 37 the measure
it Oetonted.
Local Option met its long-expected
overwhelming defeat in the
House Tuesday night after a long
but dispassionate debate from every
viewpoint. The bill, backed by the
Anti-Saloon League of Pennsylvan
ia and kindred organizations, was
buried for the present session.
The bill was introduced by Rep
resentative Fair, of Westmoreland
county, and authorized the elec

ward of any city to vote upon the
question of the sale of liquor.
Not in years has the House of
Representatives been so crowded to
hear a debate on an important bill.
Both sides of the local option ques

of adherents, who came to Harris
burg from all parts of the State.
Speeches were made in favor of
the bill by Mr. Fair. R. S. Am
merman and others, and against it
by Schad of Pittsburg, Shern of
Philadelphia, and others. When
the vote was taken on the bill
there were 66 in favor of it and
137 against it, so that local option
is aead tor tne next two years.
Porcupines a Pest
Col. R. B. Rickettt Often $1 lor Each One
Killed in His Forest.
A war of extermination , was de
clared by Colonel R. Bruce Rick
etts, of Wilkes-Barre, upon the
numerous porcupines on his forest
preserve on North Mountain,
which are destroying the only vir
giu tract of hemlock trees iu this
part of the State.
These trees are along Kitchen's
Creek, in Luzerne and Columbia
Counties, and amidst some of the
wildest forest scenes in the East.
During the Winter a number of
them have been killed by the hun
gry porcupines,, which eat off the
bark all around the tree and can in
a night do a great deal of damage.
In order to save the trees Colonel
Ricketts has offered to pay $1 a
head for every porcupine killed on
his preserve. This is the only way,
he says, to get rid of the pests and
he expects a score or more of trap
pers will get busy.
A few years ago he faced a simi
lar situation and then by paying a
dollar a piece for many hundred of
them managed to save his trees.
They have again multiplied and
another war is necessary.
Shickshinny Free Bridge.
The river bridge over the Sus
quehanna between Mocanaqua and
Siiickshinny was opened free to the
public on Wednesday of last week,
having been purchased by Luzerne
county at a cost of$t2,5oo. Tin
bridge was owned by the Paddy's
Run Bridge Company, and is the
fourth river toll bridge to be pur
chased and freed within the past
year, the bridge was built for
railroad as well as general traffic.
The original structure was erected
in 1854. This was swept away by
the flood of 1865. Another struc
ture was later erected, but this was
also destroyed, and the present
bridge was opened to the public in
September, 1881, nearly 28 years
Surface Caves In at Plymouth.
A subsidence of the surface over
old mine workings iu the Gaylord
colliery at Plymouth, which started
Sunday, has spread so far that ten
residences are affected, while the
surface on Shawnee avenue, one of
the principal streets ot the town,
has been depressed at various points
for a distance of 300 feet. Water
and gas pipes were broken aud re
pair gangs were put to work.
The disturbance, it is reported,
is due to a squeeze in the Gaylord
workiugs which have affected a
supporting pillar of coal in the
Dodson colliery. The subsidence
is the most serious that the town
has experienced in years.
Mrs. Katherine Dill, wife of the
late Andrew II. Dill, State Senator

Dr. Hartman has claimed for many years that Peruna is an EXCELLXJT

claim as to the efficacy of Peruna.
Since the ingredients of Peruna are no longer a secret, what do the medf

Take, for instance, the ingredient HYDRASTIS CANADENSIS, OT.

diseased mucous membranes of the pelvic organs. It is also recommended fit
the treatment of various forms of diseases peculiar to women.
Another ingredient of Peruna, CORYDALIS FORMOSA, is classed in Orv
United States Dispensatory as a tonic.
CEDRON SEEDS is another ingredient of Peruna, an excellent drag flat'

War Declared on Mushroom Hats.
Young Officers of the Navy at Washington
Form an Antl "Merry Widow" Hal
Younsr officers of the United
States navv who are regularly in
vited to the debutantes' teas in
Washington say they are going to
form an auti mushroom "Merry
Widow" hat league or wear base
ball masks in the future.
It appears that the so called
"pink teas" are sometimes positive
ly dangerous if either Miss New
berry, daughter of the secretary of
the navy, Miss Olga Converse, the
Misses Fremout, the Misses Good
win or any of the other navy girls
turn around too abruptly when
naval officers or others of their ad
mirers get among them and come
within range of their hats.
These large hats of the mush
room "Merry Widow" species are
sometimes as sharp on the edges
as if they had been specially strop
ped and, in addition, generally
have stanch, sharp pointed feath
ers which profrude and could inflict
untold damage if properly aimed.
No one accuses the navy girls of
attempting to do damage with these
weapous, but the fact remains that
there are several of the younger
officers who have received painful
glancing blows from the hats, but
have been too gallant to :omplain.
They are always reminded of the
man who recently hadus jugular
veiu severed by a blow trotn a
"Merry Widow" hat.
'IThe way the damage is done,"
one ot the navy girls admirers
said, "is generally in this fashion:
You go to a tea and, after shaking
hands in the drawing room, spy
several of the fair young navy dam
sals all iu a group and talking vi
vaciously. You approach cautious
ly and begin the recital of some
carefully prepared speech about the
weather to Miss Converse. At the
sound of your voice Miss Newberry
or Miss Fremont or some other
navy girl turns her head quickly
your way and delivers you some
where about the face a stinging
blow with the edge of her hat and
the sharp pointed feathers. Of
course you suffer in silence, like a
man, but you silently pray for the
day when softer or smaller hats
will be in style."
