it. half dozen have signified their will
ingness to Join the rival organization.
A prominent Scran ton lawyer is act
ing In this city as the representative
of Balling ton Booth. He It was, ac
cording to rumor, who weaned the
Misses Masland nnd Green from the
' Salvation army and caused them to
Join the new movement.
In New Jersey. New York city and
In Chicago, Balllngton Booth's Influ

Salvation army leudcrs the new move
ment is successful only bemuse of the

Booth and his wife. One of the officers
recently sold: "The Volunteer move
ment will hurt us in this city. It will
stimulate thn work In which we are at

tions will suffer from financial wants.

ABOUT . STUART'S DYSPEPSIA

tlea Aay way. Whether Yea have Faith la
All physicians agree that the element
of faith has a great deal to do In the
cure of disease.
Firm belief and confidence In a fam
ily physician or the same confidence
and faith In a patent medicine, have
produced remarkable cures, in all ages.
This Is especially true in nervous
troubles and no field offers so prolifio a
harvest for the quack and charlatan, aa
the diseases arising from a weak or
run down nervous system.
Nevertheless, the most common of all
ilisrasis, indigestion and etamach trou
bles, which in turn cause nervous dis
eases, heart troubles, consumption and
loss of llcsh, require something besides
faith to cure.
Mere faith will not digest your food
for you, will not give you an appetite,
will not Increase your tlesh and
strengthen your nerves and heart, but

In- the English Metropolis Living Is
Choa per Than In New York.
The London Dally Graphic, In com
menting upon a paragraph which ap
peared In this column some time ago
concerning the pay of literary workers,
smiles at the Idea of $5,000 a year being
regarded as a small income. I never
said that it was a small Income. What
I did say was that it was small In pro
portion to the demands upon It. It
would be good pay for a bachelor, but
not tor a gentleman of family. The
Graphic closes its remarks by saying:
"We know of scores of literary workers
In London, who. In the historic phrase
of the cabman, 'wish that they had hulf
the complaint' of the new paupers of
New York." From the Graphic's point
of view, 13,000 a year is a good deal of
money, for the Graphic is a London
paper, and $2,500 a year in London is
equal to $5,000 In New York. A family
man with $5,000 a year In this city can
not afford to live in a house, as I
have said before; In London he could
afford a very good house. I know of
one man of letters In London, tor ex
ample, who has a house that I would
be proud to live in, and all he pays is
50 a year. This may not Include
rates and taxes I hope for the sake of
the landlord that It does not but even
with those expenses added the rent
would be pretty low. Where In New
York could he get a house or even a
flat for such a price?
SHAVED AT HOME.
A Suggestion That Ladles Should Shave
From the Louisville Courier-Journal.
"Do you ever notice how clean shav
en that man Is?" asked a young wo
man pointing to a. merchant well known
on Main street the other day. When
she was answered In the affirmative the
young woman continued:
"Well, that shows what a woman
can do. His wife shaves him. I sur
prise you? I would surprise you more
if I told you the names of a dozen more
well-known merchants who Indulge
their whims and their wives' desires in
this direction. It almost amounted to a
fad for a time, and was at its height
lust summer, ji Louisville woman who
was visiting east saw some women
barbers at work In New York, and as
she noted the ease and grace with which
the professionals removed the superflu
ous hirsute growth she concluded she
would try It when she returned home.
Her husband objected at first, but when
he was finally induced to subject him
self to the ordeal he congratulated him
self on the result. After that he would
not allow a regular barber to touch his
face. The fad spread, and I couldn't
tell you how many more followed suit."
PAINLESS, BUT NOT PROFITABLE.
The dentist was torturing hie Victim in
the usual double fashion.
The story he was telling at that moment
was on himself.
''When I was young In the profession,"
said he, "I was working In a country place
for a few weeks to help a friend. One day
a farmer came in a big, muscular chap,
full blooded one of the sort whose teeth
come like the roots of oak trees.
"As he sat in the chair, he asked, 'Wilt
"Feeling in rather a jocular mood, I an
swered, 'Well, if it doesn't It shan't co3t
you anything. Then I fell to work.
"The tooth came even Viarder than I ex
pected, so as the man got up from the
chair and pulled himself together he had
not uttered a sound I said, 'Well, did it
" 'Not a bit,' answered the countryman,
and strode out of t'he office, eaving me
minus a fee, completely nonplussed, and

two or three patrons who sat about the
"I have never tried to be funny profes
sionally Ince," said he, meditatively."
DIDN'T NEED A CLOCK.
Mrs. Yerger "That's s very handsome
clock you have there on the mantelpiece."
Mrs. Peterby "Yes: it keeps very good
time, too. It is very useful during the
"1 should think It would be still more
useful during- the night. You can tell then
at what hour your husband comes home."
"I don't need any clock for that pur-
vou see. if he banirs thn frnnt
door and makes a great deal of noise, I
know then that it Is quite early. If be

ant In his talk and says 'good-eveninK,'
then I know that it is late. If he takes
off his boots and goes to bed without
lighting the gas, then I am sure that it Is
about 8 o'clock In the morning. As I said,
the clock Is quite convenient during the
day, but I really don't need one at night."

THE COURT COULDN'T DECIDE.
Judge Buck, of the Superior court, nt
Spokane, has for three days past been
hearing arguments in the case of the state
against John W. Consldlne, proprietor of
a variety theater, who Is charged with tho
crime of having violated a new state law
called the "barmaid act," which prohibits
females from being employed In any place
where liquor Is cold, and which was being
attacked as to its constitutionality. The
lawyers had all assembled In court this
morning to resume arguments, when
Juilgo Buck arose and said:
"Gentlemen, I learned for the first time
last night that my wife was the author of
that bill, and, that being the case, I will
decline to pass upon the question of its
The arguments will not have to be gone
over again before one of the other judges.
