CONjfELLSVTLLE, April 25. The Courier
coke review to-morrow will say: The coke
trade made a gallant effort to brace up last
'week. Cutting of prices-ceased in the face
of a more liberal demand, and there is a de
cided increase in productions and ship
ments. It would not be safe, however, to
legard this as a permanent advancement.
(The situation does not hold out such hopes.
The iron trade shows no signs of im
provement. True, its prices remain firm,
but it is already so low that lurnacemen
cannot go any lower without incurring
actual loss in manufacturing. This butch
ering of the price of pig iron has no doubt
had some effect in reducing the price of
coke, though this could have been avoided
bad the operators worked together in har
mony. As noted above, we bear of no farther cut
ting In cote prices, but we do hear a great deal
of regret expressed amonc leading operators
that the SL25 rate is no more, mingled with a
great many more criminations and recrimina
tions in the same connection. Just who started
the cutting of prices is a matter of great dis
pute, but the guilt Is not confined to any par
ticular firm or section of the region. Those
operators who were notparlicepjert'mmij were
accessories after the fact, and like the man
who lived in the historic glass bouse, ought not
to cast stones at their neighbors.
The operations of the 77 coke plants of the
Connellsville region for the week ending on
Saturday last, shows 11.141 of the 13.265 com
pleted ovens in blast, and 2,122 idle, against
10,885 active and 1,938 idle the previous week.
LOVE AND DEATH
Mixed Up Together in a Tale From a Little
fEFECIiX TELEOKm TO THS DISPATCn.1
Tuns, April 25. A remarkable story comes
from Seunquat, a small village 15 miles south
of here, it being brought out by the finding of
Miss Betta Oberlander, a young girl of that
neighborhood, dead in the kitchen of the house
where she was employed at Bucyrns. About a
year and a half ago John Breece, the village
blacksmith, discovered that his young wife was
too fond of Tom STail, a worthless young scamp.
He thrashed Kail until he was nearly dead, and
then left for the "West. Nail afterward made
love to Miss Retta Oberlander, a young girl of
Last November Nail was f onnd dead and a
large amount of poison was discovered in his
stomach. The Coroner's verdict was that he
committed suicide, though it was generally be
lieved that he had been poisoned by his
younger brother, who was an unsuccessful
suitor of the same girL The girl took on terri
bly at the inqnest and at the funeral said: "In
less than five months I will be with Tom." It
lacked but a few days of being five months
from the date of the funeral when she was
found dead at Bucyrus. The doctors said she
died of heart disease, bnt it is generally be
ueved that she committed suicide.
During the past five months all has not gone
well at Nail's home. Two elder brothers heard
the rumors about the younger brother poison
ing Nail and from his peculiar actions and
things he said they came to believe them true.
Boone Sunday they proceeded to take the
younger brother out and execute him. They
put a rope aroundhis neckand hanged him to a
beam in the barn. Their wives entered the
barn and the horrible spectacle caused one of
them to faint. "While the men were carrying
her to the house, the other woman cut down
the hanging man who was nearly dead. She
resuslctated him. however, and he made bis
escape, and has not been seen since.

was learned that the President of the Coun

deciding vote, had resigned, his resignation
to take effect to-day.
This will give the liquor men one more

It Is therefore singular that those afflicted with
this fearful disease should not make it the ob

tenders to medical knowledge have weakened
the confidence of the great majority of suffer

resigned to a life of misery rather than torture
themselves with doubtful palliatives.

DAYS OF MIRACLES EOT PASSED.-
A Cripple of Three Years Standing
Cured in Fifteen Minutes
By Dr. Smith, at 502 Fenn Ave.
Dr. Smith Is performing some of the most
wonderful cures ever witnessed in Pittsburg.
Scores and hundreds of Invalids who have
hitherto been unable to find relief from their
sufferings are being restored to health In large
numbers throueh'Dr. Smith's strange magnetic
power. It is exceedingly interesting to see
and talk with the vast number of invalids suf -ferlng
from all manner of complaints
who are brought to the doctor for his favor
able or unfavorable opinion of their diseases.
It is also gratifying to observe the change that
takes place in many of these seemingly helpless
cases. Scores of invalids who are so weak and
feeble that they have to be carried to the doc
tor in chairs and on beds are restored to health
in a short time. Some are cured by one, some
by two magnetic treatments, while others re
quire more. The following very interesting
case "was cured by our magnetic treatment:
Mr. John M. Eakin,-who resides at Eau Claire,
Butler connty. Pa., was a great sufferer for
three years. He was carried to Dr. Smith, at
No. 602 Penn avenue, in a hopeless condition.
He could not walk or more without tbe aid of
two canes, and for the past year he bad not
been able to bend over sufficiently to wash
his face. He was suffering from what had
been pronounced by 12 eminent physicians as
psoas abcess. These physicians pronounced
his case Incurable, and told him that there was
no help for him. He then consulted Prof.
Scott and Dudly Allen, M. D., of the Regular
School of Medicine at Cleveland, O. These
eminent medical men gave him noyenconrage
ment, as pus had, in their opinion, already
formed. These are the statements given to Dr.
Smith by Mr. Eakin when he came for treat
ment. After one magnetic treatment of about
'15 minutes' duration, Mr. Eakin was able to
bend over and pick up a pin from the floor
and was able to walk without pain and without
the use of his canes. Mr. E. remained in the
city several days after receiving the treatment
and was able to go about the city from day to
day without never a sense of pain, wearintss or
lameness. He returned to his home, at Eau
Claire last Saturday, and may be referred to.
Mrs. Gongh was cured of dyspepsia and rheu
matism by four magnetic treatments. These
cures were performed without a single dose of
medicine. Scores of cases equally a3 interest
ing could be given if we had the time and
space. Dr. Smith will deliver an illustrated
lectnre to ladies and gentlemen at the Grand
Opera House next Sunday afternoon at 2:30
o'clock. The lecture will be free and every
body is invited to attend.
Dr. Smith cures all lorms of female com
plaints without the use of instruments or ex
posure 6f the person. He also enres piles and
rupture without the use of the knife, or pain
to the patient, nor detention from business.
He treats and cures cancers in less time and
with less pain than by any other known
Dr. Smith is permanently located at 502 Penn
avenue, where everybody can go from 9 A. H.
till 7 P. H. The doctor consults free and cures
after all other means fall. He treats every
form of disease known to humanity. Goto
