Delegates from every ' part of the
state arrived In the city yesterday io
ntti.nil tlid fitrtxr-ninth finminl Rosslnll
of the Btate council of the order of
Senior United American Mechanics,
which will open this morning nt II
o'clock, In the Ancient Order United
Workmen's hall, on Luckawunnu ave
nue. A preliminary meeting of tho Fu
neral Aid association, of Pennsylvania,
an auxiliary of the order, was held yes
terday at 2 p. m when the following
secretary's report was presented:
"In nui'sUHiiee of the Ijlw pimrted at
the last nnnual session of the state
association, requiring the annual re
port to be made up to April 1, of each
IIhpuI year, I have the honor to present
the following as a summary of the work
done during the past yenr. The past
year has been one of unusual depres
sion In finances nil over the country.
This will account for the number of
suspensions, and the slow accessions to
our ranks. In nlmost every Instance I
have found that members allowed
themselves to fall In arrears . not be
cause they had no faith in the aid,
but because of lack of employment. 1
have made every effort under the au
thority given me at our last session to
kei'P the aid before the members of the
order; lO.Ono circulars were sent out, ex
plaining Its features, and hundreds of
personal letters were written In re
sponse to Inquiries. There are several
facts that I desire to particularly Im
press upon our members.
1st. The small number of assess
ments. There wis durlnir the venr 11
deaths, and 8 assessments were levied,
making the total cost per member for
assessments nnd the years' dues, $1.05;
of these seven beneHcnrles were dhM
$100. The fund In September warrant
ing the commencement of the payment
of $100."
During the year eight assessments
were Issued, costlnc the members
eighty cents and twenty-five cents on-
naul dues, hence the total cost per
member was but a fraction over two
cents per week. The report was signed
by A. u. Saybolt. of Philadelphia.
After the reoort had been discussed
and action taken on the same, the fol
lowing members of the association
were elected: President. Robert M.
Johnston, Pittsburg; vice president,
Isaac H. Rahn, Leesport; secretary, A.
B. Laybolt, Philadelphia; treasurer,
Charles H. Kurtz. Philadelphia; direc
tors, for three years, Walter Graham,
Philadelphia: Samuel M. Wao-ner Me.
chanlcsburg; Howard O. Holsteln, Har-
risDurg; William H. Wind. Philadel
Number of .Members Reported.
The numerical report showed the
number of associations in the aid on
April 1, 181)5 to be 76 as compared with
54 for the previous year, and the number
of members 1333, there having been 449
received during the year and 136 sus
pended. The total revenue was $419.95
and the expenditure $221.39. The state
mentof the assessment fund showed the
total revenue for the year to be $1,063.SO
and the amount paid to beneficiaries
$9000, leaving a balance of $163.80 and a
total amount of $362.36 In the treasury.
During the meeting the secretary re
ported that 2,500 members would soon
be added to the society, thus Increasing
the funeral claim ner member to the
sum of $350.

the reception of delegates and ox-state

General A. B. Catlln, formerly Deputy
Surveyor of the port of New York, Is a
veteran of the army and a well-known
Republican politician.
"I have been troubled with catarrh for
many years," said General Catlin, "I doc
tored for it a great deal; and this winter
my condition was terrlblo. I took cold
easily and my nose became stopped up. I
bad severe pains across the front of my
head, 'my eyes became watery. I sneezed
a great deal, and my bones and Joints
ached continually. Whan I got up In the
morning my throat was filled with a nasty
slime, which dropped there during the
night. I had to hawk a great deal, and
this made me gag and often vomit. There
was a roaring or buzzing sound' In my
ears, and my breath was very offensive
I lost my appetite, ran down In weight,
and became depressed In spirits.
"I tried thoroughly several of the best
physicians, so-called, In New York, took
patent nostrums of all descriptions, but
grew worse all tho time.
"Finally I began .Munyon's Catarrh
Remedies. I thought It was no use, and
had but little faith, but I began to Im
prove right away. My disease rapidly
yielded to the remedy, and I underwent a
change that was wonderful. Within a
short time I was entirely cured, the last
traces 'of the hideous dlBease had van
ished, and today my friends are marveling
nt the great change In me. It Is a won
derful relief to feel strong and healthy
again, and It gives me great pleasure to
testify that restoration to health Is due
to Munyon's Catarrh Remedy."
Munyon's Homeopathic Remedy Com
pany, of Philadelphia, put up a cure for
every disease. No matter what the dls
case Is or how many doctors have failed
to cure you, ask your druggist for a 25
cent viol of one of Munyon's cures, and If
you are not benefited your money will be
Those who are In doubt as to the nature
of their disease should address Professor

Sir: As there are a great many peoplo
who cannot understand why I made such
a poor rcore nt Wllkes-Barre and Scran
ton In my pigeon matches with Dr. W. F.
Carver, for their hem-lit I wish to sny that
there nre times when crack shots can
shoot better than others. In the first
place this was demonstrated by tho poor
score I made ot Wllkes-lliirre, and on the
following day In Scranton, where I shot
at nn So per cent. rate. I hail live boils
on the buck of my neck at the time the
shoots took place, but as the dates were
made. It was Impossible to postpone them,
nnd the recoil of the gun every time It
was shot was something tremendous, and
the strain on my neck and the agony 1
shot under no one but myself could realize.
I have killed 71 pigeons out of 7.1, nnd my
past record shows for Itself thnt while I
do not profess to clolm I can kill WO
