Plttston, Pa., Jan. 21. We are grow
ing. Constantly advancing on every
hand. Advancing In Industries, ad
vancing In government, and most of
all advancing In 'population. Kven with
cur many new and improved dwellings
erected within the past year on both
Ides of the river, our real estate agen
cies are unable to supply the ever in
creasing demand forcomfortable houses
of u moderate rental fee. An official of
the Lehlg-h Valley Hallroad company
recently expressed a desire that morn
of 'his employes should move to Pitts
iton, as It was much more convenient
and would save a great amount of time
and unnecessary travel to and from
their work. His men, or their repre
sentatives, came to our city and after
a thorough canvass found that it would
be Impossible for them to find dwellings
within their means. The season Is now
ripe, with a new city charter, new
manufactories and the re-organization
of our board of trade, for our merchants
and property holders to place before
our would-be citizens houses that will
make botfh adequate and pleasant
The great fire sale will commence at
X B. Klrby'a furniture 'store on Wed
nesday next and will continue until the
entire stock Is closed out.
Who Is the Owner
A mysterious article was seen on the
river early this morning which created
considerable comment. The attention
of a gentleman crossing the lower
bridge was called to a lady's seal skin
muff floating on, the surface of the
water. The incident may give evidence
to another case of self murder. The
muff had to all appearances been in
the water but a short time. It may
have been dropped from the ferry or
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
railroad bridges. The nearest wagon
bridge up the river is located at Tunk
hannock. We wish to rectify the error made in
our letter this morning In regard to the
sufferers to be aided by the West Side
Wethudlst church. Their efforts are to
assist the Impoverished settlers In
Nebraska. The collection taken yester
day morning amounted to $52, with
many contributions of clothing, etc.
The Plttston agents of the United
States and National Express companies
have very kindly offered to forward all
goods to the sufferers free of charge.

WHAT YOU NOTICE
Bt first, perhaps, in taking tfac Carls
tad Sprudel Salt regularly, Is a de
crease in weight It Is getting rid of
all the unhealthy, unnatural flesh and
tissueif you have any. That Is what
makes it so valuable In cases of obesity.
But after that, if you are thin al
ready, the firm, sound, healthy tlcsb
that you need comes in a thoroughly
natural way. Your digestive organs
ore put into perfect condition; your ap
petite is sharpened; there's no waste;
the food that you take nourishes you.
' No matter whether you're too stout
or too thin the Carlsbad Sprudel Salt
brings you to the proper, healthy
standard, either way.
. Take no imitations sold as "im
proved" or "artificial" Carlsbad Salt,
which are only mixtures of ordinary
Glauber Salt and Seldlitz Powder, sold
by unscrupulous dealers in order to
make larger, profits. The only genu
ine imported article has the signature
of "Eisner & Mcndelson Co., Sole
Agents, New York," and the seal ol
the city of Carlsbad on every bottle.

The year 1S94 placed to Its credit a
total production of 30.000,000 barrels of
oil from the Pennsylvania fields. This
Is only three-quarters of a million bar

Eastern linos are experimenting with
an. appliance to avoid rear-end colli
sions In case of accident. It is a simp-la
carriage to run back on the rails,
the motive power being a rocket, which
can be exploded In any kind of wealCier.
The carriage holds a quantity of Greek
fire, which is lighted with the rocket,
the propulsive power of the latter be
ing sufllclent to send -the carriage back
3,000 feet. The most dangerous acci
dents are rear-end collisions, and this
device -will almost certainly obviate the
danger of such accidents.
