charming, ambitious girl about twenty.!
But through her jealousy of another
young lady pupil they quarreled, and1
she had refused him. Afterwards Dr.
Lancewood bought a gnod practice in
Hampshire, where he had settled, and,
often felt the need of a helpmate, for
bachelor doctors are not favored by
prudish old maids or anxious mammas
with growing daughters. .

with playful raillery.
"I should be warranted in giving up

"No, to the chancel," a whimsical
smile playing about her lips.

He paused with his hand on the door

VETERAN OF THE PLAINS.
Oscar Sacks, of New lurk. City, Tells a
Number of Incidents Concerning un
ICstccmcd Scrantoniun's former Prow
ess in the Fur West.
One evening this week a gentleman
slight In stature of about' E5 years
age stopped over In this city to see one
of his old acquaintances In the person
of our well known townsman, Dr,
Henry N. Dunnell. It seerrm they have
known each other for over forty years,
The visitor's name Is Osoar Sacks, who
at present la living In New York city,
but who wus formerly in the far west.
Thirty-five to forty yeurs ago he llg-
urcd In a thrilling affair on 'the plains,
in which by his bravery he saved the
lives of his entire party. He was cross
ing the plains with several companion,
when the party was -surrounded by
redskins. It was only by breaking
through the lines of the surroundln
Indians that he brought help' which
saved the camp. He was a young man
then, but afterwards had many a brush
with the Indians.
Our townsman, Dr. If. N. Dunnell,
came here twenty years ago from the
west. It seems strange to hear, his
friend call him Harry. Mr1. Sacks Bays
that in the west the doctor was known
only as "Handsome Harry." In those
days the doctor had long curly hair,
was about 6 feet 10 Inches tall, was red
and rosy with vigorous health and had
a skin as fair as a woman's.
One Spirited Adventure.
One bystander seemed to think the
western men had poor taste In giving
the doctor such a name. He evidently
did nut think the doctor's nose hand
some, as It was turned a little to one
side. "Well," Mr. Sacks said, "that
came from an accident afterwards.
suppose Harry never said anything
about It. I came in near the wind up
and remember something about It
Like almost everything that happens
there's a woman In the case. In this In
stance a degenerated tough a little un
der the Influence, perhaps, of bug juice
Insulted a woman. In a moment he
was making an apology, as he was look
lng along the barrel of 'Handsome
Harry's' gun. Some few weeks later
he and two pals laid to 'do' Harry,
They got fooled, of course, but In the
encounter Harry got a blow with the
butt of a gun on the face, which oc
casioned the small permanent disflg
urement of his nose."
Mr. Sacks Is acquainted with Captain
J. Garza, who Is at present visiting
Scranton. The other evening he took
the doctor around to the Westminster
and Introduced him to the captain
They seemed to enjoy themselves very
much, and when they parted, the cap
tain and Mr. Sacks had made a deal
Mr. Sack's agreed to give one elk's
tooth for six buffalo's teeth.
If half what Mr. Sacks says about
our townsman la true and ho Isn't u
man to draw the long bow a hlBtory of
his life would read like a romance,
The doctor has a very lRrge number of
friends In Scranton. Rich and poor
alike admire the man for his qualities
of head and heart.

Events of the Week.
A LORD ENGAGES IN BUSINESS
Gossip Concerning the Prince and Prin
cess of Walcs-Rcmlnlsccncc9 of tho
Late;john Walter, of .tho London
i Times- Gladstone's New Work. . .
: London, Nov. 10, "94. The most seri
ous event of the week has been the
death of the . chief proprietor of the
Times newspaper, . John'., Walter.
Strangely enough he was not a literary
man, but inclined to politics. He was
educated at Oxford and after one un.
successful attempt he was returned a
member of parliament for Nottingham.
He afterward sat for his native county,
Berkshire, which he represented for a
quarter of a century. He was not the
solo proprietor by a long way, but he
was the owner 1-16 and a half a 1-10
shares. His income must have varied
Considerably, as in 18S8 120,000 was
paid to the proprietor, whilst" in 1889,
thanks, to the "Parnell Commission'
12,000 was all that was handed over
He never interfered with the working
of the paper, but he paid 00,000 out of
his pocket In connection with the libel
action brought against the Times. He
was the beau ideal of a country gentle
man ana nis estate, i3earwooa, was a
beautiful one. A kind and just man to
his employes, a good neighbor and a
warm friend, he will be much missed.
Ireland considers that it pays an un.
just proportion toward the total taxa
tion. Englishmen are much divided in
opinion, consequently a royal commis
sion Is sitting on the question. The
arguments advanced clash terribly as
a matter of course and after reading
reports of proceedings up to now the
average man Is left in considerable
doubt. Mr. Sexton, the Irish M. P., has
been endeavoring to prove that a sys
tem of equal taxes upon the same sub
jects of taxation. In two countries dif
ferently circumstanced, may operate
unequally. He pointed out that whilst
the consumption of spirits was only
four times greater in Kngland than In
Ireland the population was between six
and seven times greater. Therefore
Ireland paid too much tax on brandy
and things another Injustice to Ire
land. "Klght you are," admitted Lord
Welby, "but what about beer? Eng
land consumes a much greater quantity
of ale than Ireland even In proportion.1
"True for you," says Sexton, and so it
goes on. "What will you take, Paddy?"
Three of Oirlsh hot, ' plaze." "And
what's for you, Johnny Bull?" "Pint
er-beer, with a good head on't!"
Mr. Asqulth with his wife have been
staying in Scotland, where they have
been playing golf. This Is the head
caddies" opinion of our home secre
taryafter which he had better smoth
er hlmselr: "He may be a gle guld
law-maker, but he's nae golfer. Ye
see, it taks a man wl' a guld head tae
be a golfer."
Great old man Gladstone has at last
brought out his much sought after and
long looked for translation of "Horace."
Taken as a whole Mr. Gladstone's book
Is worthy of comparison with those of
his predecessors. Sir Theodore Martin,
Professor Conlnghara, . Rutherford
Clark and Sir Stephen de Vere, and is a
work that Is receiving great and well
deserved congratulation. , This is an
age of "cheek," and close on the hecli
of Mr. Gladstone's book comes a collec-
tlon of parodies, cleverly written by
C. L. Graves. The booklet Is called
"The Huwarden Horace," a very smart
title. Mr. Gladstone renders the well
known "Perlcos Odl" thus:
Off with Persian gear, I hate It,
llute the wreaths with Umebaik bound,
Car not where the latest noses
Linger on the ground.
Bring me myrtle, naught but myrtle!
Myrtle, boy, will well combine
Thee attending, me carousing,
'Neath the trelllsed vine.
Mr. Graves parodies It in the follow
'Oriental flowers my Cyril,
(SavexOf language), 1 detest:
Cull for me no costly orchid
To adorn my blameless breast
Nor essay to deck my raiment
With the blushing English rose.
For Its brutal Saxon odour
Aggravates my Scottish nose!
Me as minister the fragrance
Of the leek doth most arrlde
With the shamrock and the thistles
In a purple posy tied:
So beneath my grand umbrella
Firmly fixed on college green;
Let us deviate, from duty
In a deluge of poteen!
When It Is pointed out that the or
chid refers to Joey Chamberlain, the
leek, shamrock end thistle to Wales,
Ireland and Scotland and college green
to Dublin the cleverness of the Impru
dent writer will easily be understood
Tho prince and princess of Wales are
nt Llvada, and the princess will, in all
probability, stay the winter with her
widowed sister, the Empress of Russia,
The sympathy Is great-between these
two, In fact family ties take precedence
in all matters as far as the womanly
future Queen of England is concerned
The prince and his consort have not
been the best of friends lately, the
princess having, for some time past
evinced a lack of sympathy for His
Royal Hlghness.'but the princess pos
sesses such a naturally sweet dlsposi
tlon that the sad event that has taken
them away together and the knowledge
of the protracted separation is more
than likely to lead to a mutual "making
up" we all hope so.

In using medicines to stop pain we
should avoid such as Inflict Injury on tha
system. Opium, Morphine, Ether, Co
caino and Chloral stop pain by destroying
me buusa ui perception, wnen tne pa
tient loses the power of feeling. This Is
tho most destructive practice; It masks
the symptoms.shuts up, and Instead of re
moving trouble, breaks down the stomach,
liver and bowels, and, If continued for a
length of time, kills tho nerves and pro
duces local or itoneral paralysis.
There is no necessity for using those un
certain agents, when a positive remedy
like RADWAY'S READY RELIEF will
stop the most excruciating pain qulckef,
