Dr. Hand's Condensed Milk with
Phosphates and Hypophosphites
Added The Best Milk for Family
Condensed milk Is produced by evap
orating fresh milk to which a certain
amount of cane sugar has previously
been added. The quality of the prod
uct depends on the richness und purity
of tho milk and sugar used and on the
care taken in its manufacture.
Dr. Hand's Condensed Milk Is pro
pared from only the best of rich fresh
milk, and by a special process which
permits the uso of a smaller quantity
of sugar than Is necessary'in ordinary
brands of condensed milk. During the
manufacture of the special brand there
Is added to the fresh milk the phos
phates of lime and soda, which build
up the teeth and bony structure, the
hypophosphites of potassium, which
builds tho brain, nerves and all tho tls
ues, and tho hypophosphites of man
ganese, which enriches the blood by in
creasing the number of Its rod cor
puscles. These elements are necessary
to make a complete food and are al
most, if not entirely, lacking in the or
dinary brands of condensed milk from
tho fnct that during the usual process
of manufacture they are either driven
off or destroyed by tho high tempera
ture used. Thes adltlons do not change
the tnsto or in any way tend to make
the milk a medicine, but Improves It
for general use, It Is a perfect' food
for young. and old. IJablos thrive on it,
Invalids llnd it a superior body builder
and for tho nevrous and ovorworker
it does wonders in restoring used up
energy and strength.
It Is the best mollk for family use
and can bo used for all purposes thot
fresh milk Is UHed for, and with more
It is for sale- by grocers and drug

MEW OF THE HOUR
THE HONOR BESTOWED UPON
DR. H. B, WARE.
National Organizer Frdjl Ditcher,
One of the Plcturesquo Figures of
the Present Strike Management.
Kind Words for Lieutenant Colonel
Wint, of the Sixth Cavalry, Who
Has Distinguished Himself During
tho Recent Events in China Man
Who Finished Coghlan's Work.
Dr. II. U. "Ware, who was Inst wpek
at Wllkes-Bnrro elected president of
tho State Homeopathic society, Is being
warmly congratulated by his friends
upon tho distinguished honor that has
come to him and Incidentally to this
cltv ns well. It Is an evidence of the
doctor's popularity among his fellow
physicians no loss than of his stand
ing In his profession that he has been
made tho olllelal head of the organiza
tion In Philadelphia.
While the doctor does not devote
himself to any great extent to tho gen
eral practice of medicine, he Is re
garded as one of the lending special
ists of the state on diseases of the oye,
enr and throat and has. frequently dis
cussed the diseases special to theo
organs at the local and state meetings
of homeopathlsts in papers that have
aroused the liveliest Interest among the
members of his profession. Before
locating In Scranton the doctor studied
In this country and In Europe, and he
has also been nn extensive traveler
both In America and Europe. He will
bring to tho duties of state president
a cultured mind nnd broad professional
experience which will mukojiis term of
When tho state convention of the
honieoDnthlsts was, held In this city
several years ago, "Dr. AVaro was un
remlttlnc In his efforts to make tho
convention n success, and to send ench
delegate home with a favorable Idea
of the hospitality of the city.
An Interesting character has been In
troduced to Scranton by the minors'
strike. He Is Frederick Dilcher, of
Xelsonvllle, Ohio, national organizer
nnd member of the national executive
board of the United Mine AVorkers. If
ever a man found his proper sphere,
Dilcher Is that man. He Is lacking In
nothing that should be found in a man
occupying his position. Ills big, sturdy
physical mnke-up, a commanding pres
ence, an Inborn shrewdness that stands
him good for any want of academic
training that his early years" In the
mines might be responsible for, a
happy, hall-fellow-well-met disposition
and a store of energy and aggressive
ness that finds cramped quarters oven
in his massive frame, are tho chief
characteristics that would be enumer
ated as befitting In connection with his
His tact Is probably best displayed
In the manner In which ho handles the
newspaper men. He knows . that a
newspaper man wants news and not
much of anything else, and ho proceeds
to give It to him In full and plenty. He
also knows that the average newspaper
man Is not a gullible sort of creature,
nnd ho carefully avoids 'telling him
anything as a fact that ho feels the
newspaper man is liable not to accent
as fact. Ho manages, however, to keep
himself well supplied with facts br
things that he Is sure newspaper men
won't be able to distinguish from facts,
nnd there Is never a time when ho is
too busy, bo it day or night, to get in
close communion with a newspaper
man and give him these aforesaid real
or apparent facts".
AVhlle ho was permanently In this
city, before 'being called to Hazlcton, he
issued "greetings" to tho mine work
ers onco or twice a day and uastod It
on a letter file hung In tho front room
of strike headquarters. This wa?
eagerly scanned by all frequenters of
headquarters, and came to be known
among the newspaper men as "Tho
Daily Dilcher." Since his going away
tho "greetings" have been discontinued
and a fruitful source of "filling" for
the newspapers has been cut off.
The New York Commercial Adver
tiser of Saturday contained a splendid
photo-engraving of Lieutenant Colonel
T. J. Wint, of this city, who Is now In

Charles AV. Boyd, who has recently
been In tho city In tho Interest of tho
production of "Becky Sharp" at the
Lyceum this week, Is not only a news
paper man of note, but Is also a
dramatist of unusual ability. Mr.
Uoyd, who Is best known ns tho former
dramatic editor of the New York Press
nnd for his theatrical reviews on the
World, accomplished a dllllcult task In
completing the version of "Uecky
Sharp," which was commenced by the
late Charles Coghlan.
Upon the death of Mr. Coghlan only
three nets of his dramatization of
Thackeray's well-known novel had
been written. Mr. Boyd was asked by
Miss Coghlan's managers to complete
the work. He reluctantly consented,
well knowing the dllllctiltles that at
tend an effort to carry out the Ideas of
another In work of this kind. How
well tho lnbor has been performed,
however, has been fully demonstrated
by the success of tho remarkable pro
SICK MAN HAD A

Places by Some Unknown Person.
Bassell's Condition Serious.
A dastardly deed was attempted Sat
urday morning nt the homo of D. It.
Bnssell, of North Main street', Peek
vllle. Mr. Bassell has been danger
ously 111 for tho pnst week, in fact his
death was momentarily expected on
Thursday and Friday, but he was con
sidered somewhat improved Frldny
At about 2 o'clock Saturday morning
ho was awakened by dense smoke
which filled tho bed room. He quickly
awoke his wife, who opened the bed
room door, when it was discovered
that a lire was burning briskly in tho
center of tho parlor floor. A large
quantity of clothings, papers and chairs
had been plnced In a pile and were
being consumed by the flames. Mrs.
L. F. Bassell and Mrs. Albert Brltton
were the only other occupants of the
building. They were quickly aroused,
but mcnnwhlle" with fnlterlng steps and
weak from his severe illness, Mr. Bas"
sell carried water and succeeded in
gaining control of the flames.
The neighbors were awakened by
the alarm given forth by screaming at
the Bnssell residence and they quickly
responded. It was then discovered
that four places in the house wero on
fire. In the parlor, the kitchen, cellar
and upstairs in a spare bedroom. The
doors had all been opened so as to give
a good drnft to the flames, and but
for the timely discovery no doubt the
occupants of the building would have
been suffocated or burned to death.
The family having attended Mr. Bas
sell night and day for several days were
completely worn out and in fact slept
so soundly that they dia not hear the
person who gained entrance to the
residence nnd boldly attempted their

and when tho Are In tho parlor had
been extinguished, fell to the floor un

was done to the house furnishings.

Baptist church was reopened yesterday
and presented a fresh and Inviting ap

In tlte way of papering of the walls
Dr. Pierce last night gave a general
dissertation on the making of church
services attractive, and In endeavoring
to secure a larger amount of attend
ance from the male sex.
In tho course of his sermon he re
ferred to the ancient custom of watch
men patroling tho streets nnd calling
the hour, with tho usual accompani
ment of "All Is well." Said Dr. Pierce:
"It Is now the midnight of tho world
and Christian churches are sinking
Into a restful state and crying 'All Is
well.' All Is not well when millions of
men are dying with souls bluck with
Ho spoko of church advertising, and
said he believed in It, One strong opin
ion that ho expressed was the follow
ing: "If 1 had my way, I would secure
a largo number of bill boards and
would pltieo them around town, and
on these every Sunday would bo ad
vertised our services, and during the
week nil special services. You may say
this Is the method of the play-houses.
Yes, and tho play-houses are generally
well filled, Is It right that people
should only know when tho duvll is

where God Is every Sunday?"

Making due allowance for what the
diplomatic exigencies demand In the
wny of "bold front," It can be safely
prophesied that the proffer of tho oper
ators Is going to bo accepted by tho
strikers. One side is quite ns glad to
lot go as the other. Some men In the
ranks will be heard to say they'll never
go back till they got this, that or the
other thing, but when tho time comes
for choosing between prolonging the
strike nnd accepting a pretty liberal
offer the conservative element will as
sert Itself and the offer will bo ac
cepted. President Mitchell Is speaking very
gunrdedly these days, but he has not
as yet said that ho was not disposed
to have the miners nccept tho bare 111
per cent, advance, nnd In several In
stances left It to be Inferred that If the
Increase was Insured by being figured
on a fixed basis that It would be, ub
he put It, "a great victory."
With tho additional concession of nn
offer of arbitration of all other griev
ances, It Is a pretty safe guess that
President Mitchell will not long hesi
tate to advise his men to forego the
matter of method and go In for results.
It resolves Itself Into this:
The men want that the arbitration
should be general.
The oDerntors refuse to bo dragged
Into nny general pow-wow, feeling
positive that It Is Impracticable, be
cause of tho diverse conditions that
prevail, when the region Is considered
as a whole, and resenting the propo
sition that outsiders should Interfere
between them nnd their employes.
The miners are satisfied to deal with
their respective employers, but claim
that whenever they have attempted
this they wore told that their demand
could not be acceded to, because other
operators were not making similar ac
cessions. Agrees to Arbitrate.
Now that dlfllculty Is removed. Every
operator agrees to arbitrate with his
employes. The operators won't meet
nil the employes of all the companies
in a general conference, but they place
no bar to the employes of all the com
panies meeting together, If they want
to, and agreeing on uniform action.
That the operators expect the minors
to do this is not improbable.
It is now up to the 'miners. All de
pends on them as to how soon the
strike will be ended, nnd the commun
ity rescued from the business blight
under which it is now prostrate. If
they do not make demands that the
operators can not reasonably be ex
pected to grant, tho strike Is as good
Yesterday's dispatches had It that
a convention of the United Mine
AVorkers was likely to be held tomor
row in AVllki'S-Barre to discuss tho
proposition that was expected would
come today from the operators. As
no proposition will come from the
operators as a body, and ns the propo
sition that is to come from them In
dividually to their respective em
ployes will not bo posted till tomor
row, the likelihood of the AVilkes
Bnrro convention tomorrow is small,
unless tho Mine AVorkers" officials will
take cognizance of the newspaper re
ports and anticipate the notice.
There will, however, bo a big rally
of strikers In AVlikes-Barro tomorrow,
in which all the men of the upper
Luzerne region will participate. Rev.
Thomas Ducoy, of Now York, has
been Invited to bo tho principal speak
er. Organizer Fred Dilcher, William
Farley and Benjamin James are the
others expected to make addresses,
and there is a possibility that Presi
dent Mitchell will attend.
The question of opening a direct
cnmpnlgn against tho wnshories was
discussed at Saturday's meeting of
tho district executive board, but no
denlto action taken. The impending
settlement of (he strike and the fail
ure of Organizer Dilcher to be pres
ent to lend his counsel, occasioned
