Susquehanna. Nov. 24. In the 1lttli
cemetery nt ISHmont, near Pleasant
Mount, Wayne county. In an alinont
unmarked crave, rest the remains of
ttamuel Meredith the first treasurer of
the I'nlted States. Samuel Meredith
was born at Philadelphia In 1741. and
was educated at Chester academy. He
married Margaret, youngest daughter
of Dr. Thomas Cadwalluder, In 1771. He
represented Philadelphia In the Colon
ial assembly several times. In 1775 he
was commissioned major and fought in
the bnttles of Trenton and Princeton.
In 1777 he was exiled, with his fam
ily, by the liritlsh and the same year
was made brigadier general by Penn
sylvania. In 17S0 he and Oeorge Cly
nier each pledged $25,000 to secure pro
Visions for the United States army.
In 17.s:i-8 he was In the state legis
lature and In 17MJ-8 In the continental
congress. He was nominated by Wash
ington for I'nlted Stsrtes treasurer,
Sept. 11, liK'j, nnd continued by the
senate. He served in this position for
twelve years, receiving the commenda
tion of Jefferson. He then retired to
the then wilderness of Wayne county,
at Kelimmt. He hud large landed In
teiests In northern Pennsylvania. He
made a large cle aring at lielmont, and
erected a line residence, which was de
stroyed by lire n few yeurs ago. He
spent the evening of his days in seclu
sion, and died Feb. 10, 1S17, aged 70
years. He left a distinguished family,
but thev have never erected a tlttlng
monument to his memory. From time
to time the mutter of erecting a monu
ment has been advocated by the press,
but nothing practical has ever been
done, ('(ingress ought to take some ac
tion In the matter. Would not this
be n gourt work for the "Daughters
of the Revolution'.'"

There conies to us, via Hinghamton,
the pleasant tale of the discovery of
oxen In Leach Lake, this county. Ac
cording to the veracious chronicler four
winters ago Peter Haklns and Charles
Merrill were drawing bark across the
pond with an ox team. They left the
oxen In a bark shed, while they pur
Kiied a bear. Returning in forty min
utes, the oxen were non est and could
not be found. Their sudden disap
pearance remained a mystery until last
week, when a party of Hinghamton
scientists visited the lake and discov
ered the oxen and sled standing in the
mud live feet below the surface of the
water. They were In a splendid stnte
of preservation. The chronicler falls
to Inform us upon this point, but the
oxen were probably dead. The scien
tists advance the theory that the oxen
walked into an air hole in the ice. The
broken pieces of ice soon Joined to
gether and froze, hiding the animals
and outfit from mortal view. Truth Is
stranger than fiction.
The International Fraternal alliance,
of which Susquehanna once had a
branch, has just made the modest as

member has already paid in $.100. It's
a blessing that these skln-you-quick
concurns are fast dying out.

Concerning the case of young Wes

professor of hypnotism, the professor
tells a press reporter In Pittsburg that
Wescott had been a victim of epilepsy
and the cigarette habit. At the father's
request he restored the young man,
who had been operated upon by Inex
perience hypnotists. , Owing to the
uoys very weak condition, he was tin
able -to treat him for epilepsy, as he
hud been urged to do. Lowe says he

years old. She was a dressmaker until
last spring, since which time she had
been out of employment. The git Is
lived with their widowed mother. The
latter told Helen some time ngo of Min

Ipr daughter's condition at first. Min

trouble, but at the same time she re
fused to have a doctor examine her,

was. He is a collector for a furniture

week. Minnie left home on Friday
night last ostensibly to visit a friend in
the lower part of the city. This was
the last the family saw of her. She
had $5 In her pocket and wore a pair of
chip diamond earrings, costing about
$12. Newspaper notices of the suicide

police believe the girl spent the $.1 and
then traded or pawned the earrings
for enough money to buy a revolver
with which she ended her life.

THEY RIDICULE IT.
Many People Ridicule the Idea of an
Absolute Cure for Dyspepsia and
Ridicule, However, I Not Argument,
uud Facts Arc Stubborn Things.
Stomach troubles are so common and
in many cases so obstinate to cure that
people are apt to look with suspicion
on any remedy claiming to be a radical,
permanent cure for dyspepsia and indi
gestion. Many such pride themselves
on their acuteness in never being hum
bugged, especially on medicines.
This fear of being humbugged may
be carried too fur: so far, in fact, tnat
many persons suffer for years with
weak digestion rather than risk a little
time and money In faithfully testing the
claims of a preparation so reliable and
universally used as Stuart's Dyspepsia
Now Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are
vastly dlflerent In one Important re
spect from ordinary proprietary medi
cines for the reason that tiny are not a
secret patent medicine, no secret is
made of their ingredients, but analysis
shows them to contain the natural di
gestive ferments, pure aseptic pepsin,
the digestive acids. Golden Seal, bis
muth, hydrastls and nux. They are
not cathartic, neither do they act pow
erfully tn any organ, but they cure In
digestion on the common sense plan of
digesting the food eaten thoroughly be
fore It has time to ferment, sour and
cause the mischief. This Is the only
secret of their success.
Cathartic pills never have and never
can cure Indigestion and stomach trou
bles because they act entirely upon the
bowels, whereas the whole trouble Is
reajly In the stomach.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, taken af
ter meals, digest the food. That Is all
there Is to It. Food not digested or
half digested Is poison as It creates
gas, acidity, headaches, pnlpltatlon of
the heart, loss of llesh and appetite and
many other troubles which are often
culled by some other name.
They are sold by druggists every
where at 50 cents per package. Ad
