THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE SATURDAY MOUNINGr. MAT ii6, 1894.
"Our Pets" Have Relumed from Their Swing
Arouud tiie Circle.
SWIFT IS STILL IN COMMAND
After Listening to His Explanation of
What Had Occurred on the Trip,
the Stockholders Tell Him to Go
Ahead and Strengthen the Club.
Scranton Again Goes to the Foot of
Mart Swift and bis sturdy tombs,

to carry aloft, the colon of Scrnnton ID
the bate ball world returned to tbia
eity yesterday after their tint swing
arouud the circle.
Brass bands did not proclaim their
return nor did the populace hani; gar
lands of roses about the necks of the
returning warriois. Not a flowor was
strewn in their pathway. They came
unheralded and unsung and at once
retired to the peaceful seclusion of
their boarding placfs.
After Manager Swift had been inter
viewed by several directors concerning
the somewhat hazy work of the club
-while absent from the city be was
found by a TRIBUNE reporter.
"Well, the poor showing we made on
the trip can be attributed to a variety
of causes," said Mr. Swift. "We had
onr share of bard luck, but I don't
nian to blame all our defeats on that
much abused term. Onr pitohera ware
all right, but the team failed to bat
behind them and at critioa! momeuta
the iufield teemed to go to pieces.
That's the way we lost the games."
"Do you intend to strengthen yout
"At ono?,'' replied Mr. Swift. "J
have telegraphed Dick 1'helan of New
Orleans to come on at ouce, Ho is an
oid player but a good one and I think
will be a valuable adjnuot to the club.
Other stopn will also be taken tr
strengthen the team."
The directors of the association met
last night and it was a somewhat
turbulent session. There was a dis
position before the meeting was called
to ask for Mr. Swift's resignation, but
after his statement of eveuts that Iran
spired on the trip were heard the
stockholders decided to allow him to
continue at the bead of the organiza
tion. He declared that within ten
days he would have the club in firtt
Bad weather prevented yesterday's
game and this afternoon two games
will be played with Reading for a
single admission. The first game will

Rogers will be the Soranton battery.

terday. Harritburg for tbe second
time was compelled to bow tha knee to
the aggregation from Easton, thereby
lowering the percentage of the former

fully out of its position at the tail end
and permitting Scranton to once again
occupy its seemingly coveted station
as the rear guard of the State league

RESTING 1 STOMACH
A Way Discvoered By Which ll Can Cer
tainly B8 Done.
EVEN WHEN TIRED OUT
A Great Secret Which Solves the Pro
blen of Health and Shows Ex
actly How It Can Be
indigestion is caused oy a tired
stomach just as n sore back after work
ins is caused by tired musclet. The
remedy is rest. Rest will cure any
thing that is caused by overwork.
But how to rest the stomach without
starving? Not with drugs; drugs irive
the stomach more, instead of lss work.
In nine cases out of ten. they mak dys
To rest your stomach take food that
it artificially digested. Take Paskolu,
This gives the stomach no work at all.
A short rest makes it well aud strong
Tii wonderful secret of health and
disease is hidden almost entirely in tbe
food we eat. If we take care of our di
gestion, if we eat proper food, the
chances are that wo shall always be
well. If we fall Blck wo should take
all tbe more care of what we eat in or
der to get well.
Sicknoss can be cured by food more
easily than mediclnct. Paskola is one
of the most important of all foods.
Every sick person who take Paskola,
with proper care in other respects, is
almost cartaiu to he ultimately cured.

Paskola is doing for people.

Gentlemen: Reoelviug much benefit
Iriim your Paskola, felt it my duty to
write you that you might know personally
of its merits.
For the last twenty-six year9 1 have been
unable to use or partake of any meat or
fish aud scarcely any vegetables, being un
able to retain tho same. I have tried
many doctors and countless patent medi
cines. All were of no avail till 1 took Pas
kola. I havo used threo large bottles and
two half sized and it baa worked wonders.
1 now eat anything that is put on the
table. To eat a meal now is a pleasure,
heretofore it hrs been a torture.
In four weeks 1 havo gained live pounds.
I fi l l like a now man. I am recommend
ing to my friends, aud still taking Paskola
: Wishing you success, 1 am gratefully
yours, Chas. E. Isaac.
P. S. I took Paskola at tho solicitation
of Mr. Robert R. Siramonds, who heard of
its merits in C. E. Fairbanks & Co.

Gentlemen: I deem It a duty 1 owe to
tho publio generally, to add my testimon
ial iu relation to the merits of jour Pas
kola. I have been so weak and run down that
I thought I would have to give up my busi
ness. I could not eat or sleep, and I tried
everything that was recommended for
such nilmeuts, but all of no uso, until
about threo weeks ano a friend of mine
persuaded me to go to S. S. Myers' drng
store and purchase a bottle of your Pasko
la, which I did. To my surprise, I com
menced to gain at once and 1 havo gained
over fifteen pound iu less than three
weeks, and I now like a new raau.
Yours very respectfully,
