RE-NUMBERING THE HOUSES.
City Engineer Phillips at Work Complying
with Mr. Lsner's Resolution.
City Engineer Phillips has set his
corps at work making out a new plan
of house numbering, as required by a
resolution lntroduoed by Mr. Lauer.
At present many of the houses are
not numbered at all and many others
are improperly numbered, causing no
end of confusion. It is now proposed
to re-number the entire city, following
the old system as closely as possible.
Each lot will be given a number, which
will be placed on the assessment maps
and the 1897 tax duplicates.
It is not thought that there will be
any wholesale changes in the present

MEAN CRIMINAL ACT.
Vandals Do Damage In the New House of
A piece of malicious mischief of the
most despicable kind was recently per
petrated in the new and unoccupied
house of Victor. Koch, at the corner
of Madison avenue and Mulberry street.
Entrance to the house was forced by
unknown parties who turned on the
steam and water on the upper floors.
The expensive oak finlxhings were
warped and the water loosened the
ceilings, which fell In many of the
rooms. The same net was once before
perpetrated In the house. The loss
falls upon John Benorc, the builder, and
not the owner, who has not yet received
the property from the builder.

OLD MAN HANGED HIMSELF
John Kentschlcr Wanted to Ik- rturicd
on His Hirthday.
WHICH 01LD BE TOttbRROW
II Lived with Ilia Son-ln-Law, George
Kclb, and Uad No Reason to Complain
of Life-Deed Was Done with a
Piece of New Clothes Line.
John Rentschler. an old and well
known German resident of the South
Side, who lived with his son-in-law,
George Kelb, in the rear of 432 Alder
street, committed self destruction some
time yesterday morning by hanging
himself with a new clothes line In a
summer kitchen built about twenty feet
from the house. He would be 61 years
old tomorrow and wanted to die In or
der that the funeral could be held on
the anniversary of his birth.
For nearly two months the old man
had been in sound mental condition,
and he frequently within that time
threatened to terminate his existence.
Ten days ago l.e would have cut his
throat with ft razor but for the timely
prevention of the desperate intention.
Realizing that be should be watched,
the family kept close scrutiny on his
movements, but he outwitted them aud
succeeded In his rash design.
When Mr. Kelb arose at the usual
hour yesterday morning he noticed that
his futher-ln-law was not around, but
it wus usual for the latter to go away
early and return later In the duy. Mrs.
Kelb did not suspect that her father's
absence meant anything serious and
was not much worried until evening.
THR TiODY FGlTND.
After Furi'f-r Mr. Kelb wus engaged
around the house and he causuuJIy. in
passing the summer kitchen, tried the
door, seeing thut it was closed, and
when It llil not yield to his pressure
on the knob, he pushed his strength
against it and it opened. Lighting a
match he was confronted with the hor
rifying sight ct the old man's corpse
dangling lrotn a rafter. Placing his
hand upon the face of the suspended
form, lils touch taught him that death
had occurrfd several hours.
Mr. Kelb went back and Informed
his wife and tnon visited the Alder
street police station where he found
Lieutenant Peter Zang, who telephoned
for Coroner Ingstrect, and then went
with Mr. Kelb and cut the body down.
It was so rigid that It would have
stood erect l y supporting It on notn
sides. The features were livid and dis
torted and deatu was plainly due to
Rentschler used a piece of new clothes
lino about five feet long. He fastened
the rope to the rafter securely by
winding It around Beveral times, and
after that was done lie stood upon a
chair and tied the rope around his head,
down back of his ears and under his
chin. It was not In the shape of a
noose, but fitted around his head like
an elastic on a girl's hat. The body was
taken into the house and was placed in
the front room awaiting the arrival
of th'J coroner.
VERDICT OF COnONETi'S JURY.
Soon after being notified Coroner
Longstreet arrived and empanneled the
following Jury: P. J. Hlckey, J. W.
Schcuer. Joseph Klein, H. K. Klaumln
zer, Jacob Demuth and Frank Klein.
After hearing testimony of the family
the Jury rendered a verdict to the ef
fect that death was caused by hang
ing: the act being intentional..
- The defeased was well known on the
South Side; he was an employe of the
Lackawanna, Iron and Steel company
for over twenty-five years and worked
at the old rolling mill. For the past
three or four months he worked very
li regularly. There was no cause for his
act, other than that his mind was not
right lately. He was provided with a
good home by his son-in-law, Mr. Kelb,
and their locations were of the most
Rgreeable nature. Four sons and five
(inuishters arc left. They are: John,
Michael, Jacob, Fred, Rose, Mrs.
George Kelb, Mrs. Barbara Farlshon,
all of this city; Mrs. Christina Dohrlng,
of San Francisco, Cal.; and Mrs. Her
man Hobiing, of Brooklyn, N. Y. A
telegram will be sent to the latter this
morning. The funeral will very prob
ably take place tomorrow afternoon.

ANOTHER GRATEFUL FAMILY,
Mr. Miller Considers Paine's Celery
Compound a National Blessing.
There Is no spring remedy equal to
Paine's celery compound.
Sufferers from debility who flpd their
convalescence too slow, are joyously
surprised by the brisk lmietus toward
recovery that conies from Paine's celery
compound. Its healing, nerVe-restor-Ing,
blood-making, nourishing' powers
go so directly to the root of the!trottble
that the progress toward health and
strength Is steady and uninterrupted.
No relaiises come when Paine's cel
ery compound has once fairly begun its
healthful action. i
With a stronger appetite,1 sounder
sleep, and better digestion (results that
every one has experienced who has tak
en Paine's celery compound), the weak
and sore kidneys and the tired stomach
cease to trouble, and the nerveB allow
one to work unvexed by day and to
sleep by night, without disturbance.
This Is what physicians mean when
they say that Paine's celery compound
cures nervous diseases permanently.

diseases, physicians use this great for

REDS AND THE BLUES. '
Latter Have lloistod Their Flog Above tho
The Blues have begun their fight In
the Young Men's Christian association
membership contest by flying a (lag
from the pole on the court house. The
Hag, which Is six feet square, was
hoisted nt 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon and displays the words "Join the

will My their colors from other sightly

Is the condition of tifl'airs in offices of
the Hillside Coal and Iron company,
of which Captain W. A. May Is sup
erintendent. Captain May Is one of
(,he lieutenants attached to the Reds'
cause, but the nine clerks In the Hill
side company's office are sympathizers
of the Blues, and huve shown their
position by wearing blue neckties and
lapel buttons and in removing from the
office every article of a red color.
The typwriler hud remained neutral
up to late yesterday afternoon when
she, too, espoused the cause of the

probable that the appearance of the

a fashionable Scranton audience. The
