MURDER IS THE CHARCE
WOULD NOT APPOINT CHASt.
Court Thought His Int.restB Adverse
Jesse J. May.
Court yesterday refused to appoint
Attorney A. A.Cnase guardian of Jess
J. May. a minor child of tbe late M. D.
May. Tbe little boy had asked that
Mr. Chase be appointed, bat in refus
ing the request tbe court said that it
was tbe "opinion that tbe interests of
the said A. A. Chase are adverse to tbe
interests of tho said minor, and the
said A. A Chase not being of the same
religious belief as that in which tbe
said minor has been brought up, and
the court having doubt of tbe mental
capacity of tbe said minor to make a
proper choice of a gnardian, declines to
approve of tbe said choice, and has ap
pointed Attorney M. A. MtCinley, In
stead." The appointment of Mr. Chase as
Kuardian of Eugene P. May, another
minor child of Mr. May, was approved.
Both guardians wei directed to file
bonds in tbe sum of $300.
WANT SHOES AND CLOTHES,
Demands for Sir h on the Relief Agouti
The relief agents working for the
poor board and the associated char
ities would like those churitably dis
posed to send all the shoes and clothes
they can spare, to the ground floor of
the Mnnicipal building.
Many requests are daily made by
needy and deserving persons for raiu
uent for feet and body. The agents be
lieve their are many the in city who can
spare partly worn articles that will be
appreciated by -food people, who are
not to be considered ineudieauts be
cause they accept overcoats or dresses
they are too poor to buy, and that are
absolutely necessary to shield them
from the inclemencies of tho season.

A FEROCIOUS UNTAMED LION.
It is Being Exhibited This Weak at the
The ferocious nntamd lion "Wal
lace" which is beiu extiibitol at the
Eden Musee attracted immouee crowds
y-ster day afternoon and eveni g, snd
all who attended were astounded at
tbe conragous conduut of the animal's
traiuer. who vetitttrned into the cage
at the risk of being a patron of the un
dertaker before he cuino out.
"Wallace" is a magnificent species
of his kind. The very appearance of
any one near the oage in which he is
confined serves to arouse him to a ter
rible anger and his Ion 1 growls and
the hungry snapping of dangerous look
ing jaws inspire fear in almost every
p.ctator to say notmng or the
East Indian trainer who onters tbe cage.
As a first class attraction in popular
priced places of amusement, "Wallace"
has never beeu surpassed in Bcranton,
and is well worth seeing.
Manager Jelferson, who has assumed
charge of the Edn Musee, is a woll
known Scrantoniun, thoroughly vofsod
in the theatrical business, and if tho
show in the theater yesterday cm be
taken as a criterion of wliut the pat
rous may expect, Eden Muses will rank
as u place of amusetuint of tho very
best grade, i he performance was not
woak in any resptot and most of the
entertainers were new to Hcriiitou au
diences. Tho favorite Nurauton boys,
Dillon and Murray, the clever Irish
skotch artists, were given a ronsiug
welcome by their numerous local
friends. Thoy responded by giving as
neat an Irish turn as has ever been
seen her. Mclntyre and Rice in a
refined sketch tire so far above the av
erage variety sketch performers that
their work was decidedly refreshing,
and was loudly applauded. Miss Inez
Pearl danced and sung herself into
popularity with the audience. E Idie
Sbludlii sung a number of excellent
parodies and Marreste and iiill ex
cuted several very good dances,
AFRICAN JUBILEE SINGERS.
An Organization That Rdndors Some 'Ex

LOWRY DIED A NATURAL DEATH.

Dr. Scnnlori, who attended Page, de
scribed the wound as being a gash in
the sc ilp about three inches long. He
felt un ler the scalp, but could hnd no
fracture. The wound hud evidently
been iuliicted by a sharp instrument
nd with the exposure which Page was
subjected to, would have a tendoncy to
BTBUCK PaGB WITHOUT PROVOCATION.
Michael Dai. in stated that Page had
come to his boue Christmas night an d
asked for food. Michael Fick had como
it it few minutes later and without
provocation struck i'age with his fist

After Swearing Off
How many have taken vows of absti
nence with tbe birth of tbe new year U
perhaps hard to estimate, but we now
know that such efforts aro futile against
inveterate babit, n babit which has become
a disease. There was a time when it
wruld bavo been easy to quit, but having
ueglected to do so the babit continued un
til by the constant or fri qtient use of tbe
poison there was forced a change in the
nervous system wuicu made it not t nly
possible to drink, but necessary. Then
you could drink a good deal and not seem
10 get drunk, but you also found it neces
sary, to keep you reeling good aud you
craved uauot because you had become
diseased. Now that swearing off does no
good and the pledge can't be kept, go and
make your resolution good for all tune by
taking treatment at tbe Keeley lustitiito,
