' ARCHILD'S GAY OFFICER . 1 Johnathan Venison Tried for Shoot ing a Hun in the ThiyhV THE KIDGE MUCH IN EVIDENCE If a Few .More Places Like It Were in the County, Court Would Have Its Hands - Full-I'olundcr Who lid Not Know . Wnr Was Over. Constable Jonathan Venison's case took up nearly all of the day before Judge Edwards yesterday. It was a cross suit, Venison being both defend ant and prosecutor. District Attorney lyelley looked after the Interests of the constable and Attorney M. A. McGinloy represented the other side. On Sunday, Aug. 2L a number of Polish denizens of the Ridge were jollilieating and a law abiding citizen named Thomas Stiles had a warrant sworn out nnd It was placed in the constable's hands to serve. When Venison, as he alleges, attempted to serve the warrant he was set upon by almost the entire comunity and he bad to retrent to save himself. When pushed to the wall he drew his revolver and fired, the ball Btriklng a Hun named Joseph Wooleschesky In the thigh, going in on one side and out on the other. The wounded man was prosecuting the constable yesterday for firing that shot nnd the constable was prosecuting him and others on the charge of resist ing an officer while making an arrest. The defense claimed that Venison pulled his revolver without cause and that it was only to prevent him from committing murder that they Inter fered. Judge Edwards charged . the jury carefully and Instructed them to weigh the evidence nnd nrrlve at a verdict which will meet the approval of their consciences. A constable has a right to carry arms while In the dis charge of his duty, nnd he must be responsible to the law that gives him that power for a propoer use of these arms. He cannot use his ofllce for per sonal ends and the jury must believe that he was conscientiously executing his duty when he got 'Into' the trouble. No verdict had been returned at ad journment. Another Atiglin Case. The last case for the week was called for trial at 3.30 before Judge Edwards. Joseph Grumlnsky was charged In the Indictment in which Joseph Miglin is prosecutor with having obtained money under false pretenses, District Attorney Kelly represented the com munwealth, and Attorney Charles E. Olver the defendant. The prosecutor was the first witness on the stand and he swore that in the early part of last August Ruminlsky came into his store situated at the Ridge and asked for the change of a bill of United States currency valued at $j0. By scraping together all the money he had in the store and with the loan of $30 from his brother, the guileless storekeeper changed the bill. A few days afterward he came down to Scran ton to stow the half-hundred safely away in the bank. The cashier told him he was thirty years behind the times, that the war ended in 1SG5, that Jefferson Davis was dead, the govern ment at Washington stljl lives, and sev eral other allied remarks. In plain words it was a Confederate bill. Attorney Olver was Instructed to opt'ii his case, but Instead he argued for binding instructions. He submitted authorities and went on to show that no fraudulent intent had been proven by the prosecution. Judge Edwards said he would pass upon the arguments this morning. Two little boys, Theodore Harvey and William MeLoughlln, ns the result of an assault and baittery committed on the person of Joseph Andrewkltis, were put on trial before the court. Attorney John F. Scragg prosecuted the boys and ex-Judge W. H. Stanton defended them. The tale of woe 'told by Andrewkltis was that on Oct. 16 last he was passing along the gangway road from his work as a laborer, and at a certain point met the 'two defendants, who were driver boys. They refused to let him pass and blocked the road with a vicious mule whilth Would kick at any one that at tempted to go by. When he asked them to 'take the mule out of the way, they paid no attention, but kept on teas ing the animal. Afterward they stoned him and repeated the same operation after they got outside at Ihe mule barn. There they struck him with a stone in the face and Inflicted painful cuts. The defendants assented that the prosecutor began the assault and that they were acting only to protect them selves. ; They admitted having thrown stones at him. It was the last case heard In No. 2 court room. The jury did not wait long to reach a verdict. After being out a half hour they filed Into court again and declared thjat the defendants were guilty In manner and form as charged In the Indictment. Judge Albright told the jury that thy could rely thait no severe punishment would follow their verdict. Plea of Guilty Kntcrcd. Mary Roberts plead guilty to the of fonse of larceny and receiving and was sontenoed to $1 fine, the costs, a restora tion of the stolen property and ten days in the county Jail. The jury acquitted William G. Miller of malicious mischief under the lndldtment of hewing down timber trees, but placed the costs upon him. Thomas Logan was sentenced to the costs, and a capias was- Issued for Mary Morarn, who was Indicted for keeping a tippling house, and later she was brought Into count and pleaded guilty. 1 Judge Archbald Sentenced her to & fine of $500, costs in the case, and three months In the county jail. In the oases against Constables Pat rick Honnegan and J. W. Clark, charged With extortion, verdicts of not guilty were taken upon promise of defendants to pay the oosts. Gwennle James was tried for assaulting Jonnie Fleming. The Jury divided the costs. A capias was sent out for James Dunleavy who was Indicted for feloniously wounding Michael Noonan. James Carroll was tried for assaulting J.' A. Hubert and the Jury acquitted him, but ordered that ho pay the costs. DIXEY IN A NIGHT OFF. Comedy Produecd In on F.xccllont Manner . at the Academy. . , "A .Night Off" was presented by Augustln Daly's company of comedians at the Academy of Music last night. There was no fire engine on the stage and, of course, the aUcllence was not large, but those who were present en Joyed the performance hugely, . The comedy Ja a most laughable one and It lost nothing of humor In the treatment' It received -last night' from the .member of the Daly '.company. IJenry.Dlxey as Marcus Brutus. Snap, a- barnstorming' theatrical .'malinger, proved that he has ability forleglUmnte comedy as well as burlesque, and his work was not among the least enjoy able features of Inst nights perform ance. .Under the exacting tutorship cf Mr, Daly, the erstwhile Adonis will un doubtedly become a comedian of great merit. He has something to learn yet, however. Among the other very clever people of the company are Charles Leclerca, Francis Caiiyle, Cambell Gollorn, Mrs. Thomas Barry, Martha Ford and May Bylrie. , SOCIAL AT ELM PARK.

There Must Be no Delay in keeping llruin and Nerves Well FeJ. It Is a fearful trade this teaching school. A horde of restless, growing boys and girls no wonder every day slowly brings down the strength and nervous power of the hard-working school teacher. "Tired as a school teacher" would express the utter languor and collapse that so few escape before the long weeks are over. Of all the work open to girls and wo men, school teaching seems to wear hardest on brain and nerves. Each day Is not able to make up for the nervous expenditure of the day before, and so there comes the usual result of nerves hard worked but badly nourished; the frequent sick headache, ' loss of strength, no color In lips or cheeks, low spirits, nervousness, and a dis taste for work. What is needed is at once plain to every physician's eye. He says at a glance: "Your nerves want more food." Get pome red corpuscles Into your thin blood the red corpuscles mean henlth. Palne's celery compound will cause fresh, ruddy blood to circulate through the veins, and will give an Impetus to the .weakened digestion. Thin people with' depleted or impure blood, who are easily attacked by lung disease nnd chronic ailments, get strength and an increase of solid, healthy flesh from Palne's celery compound. It gives vigor to weak mothers and makes growing children robust and healthy. Nervous women, not actually sick, but never well, who are a burden to themselves as well as to others, find Just the help their system craves to restore them to eound health and a happy frame of mind. Healthy color, animation, clear eyes and a well filled out frame, the signs of health that never fall, come from the reasonable use of Palne's celery com pound. It Is peculiarly adapted to cor recting the depressing effect on the sys tem of long hours of hard, trying work In the schodl room, behind the store counter, tn the ofllce, and wherever there Is a constant strain on the nerv ous and physical system.
