Special to tho Scranton Tribune.
Tunklmnnoek, Oct. 12. Tho trial of
James Terry for the killing of his
brother came to an abrupt conclusion
yesterday. The last witness culled last
evening was tho stenographer who
took tlie ante-mortem statement of
D. Terry fit the Wllkes-Burro hospi
tal. The defense objected to the ad
mission of the statement, but their ob
jection was overruled, and the state
ment read. It contnlned no now mat
ter, being substantially what tho wit
ness of the stabbing testified to,
namely, that the two men were quar
reling, that a fight resulted from the
quarrel, and that during the scrim
mage, while both men were on tho
ground, the Ftabblng was done. On
coming Into court a proposition was
made by the defense that they would
withdraw their plea of not guilty and
substitute one of guilty of voluntary
manslaughter, and after some discus
sion between the district attorney nnd
the court this plea was .occepted, and
the Jury discharged. Sentence wns
suspended for the present, and tho
prisoner taken back to jail. The high
est punishment that can be Inflicted
under this aspect of the case is a fine
of not more than $1,000 and Imprison
ment not exceeding twelve years.

offered no testimony and submitted
the case without argument, and the
jury returned a verdict of guilty.

In the case of commonwealth vs.
Lloyd Newell, charged with assaulting
an Arabian peddlor near Noxon, In
which defendant had pleaded guilty,
the defendant was called for sentence.
Several witnesses were called In order
to fix the degree of sentence, and the
defendant went on the stand to tell
his story. He is a very young boy,
and was evidently frightened, as he
broke down completely and could not
testify for some time on account of
his crying. After hearing the testi
mony, the court, in consideration of
the defendant's youth, suspended sen
tetnee indefinitely or during good be
havior. Commonwealth vs. S. F. Smith,
charge, soiling liquor to minors and
selling liquor on Sunday, grand jury
finds a true bill.
Commonwealth vs. Mrs. S. F. Smith,

Hon. John Elliot, President Royal

to Peruna from 12b)

Philadelphia, in.:
"I htvp found ho

the different mem

Peruna has never

who have taken It nnd I have seen

most reliable medicine I know of."
Many people still think Ujat, ca
tarrh Is a disease confined to the head.
This, Is a great mistake. Catarrh is
liable to occur wherever there Is a
mucous membrane. Not only does the
mucous membrane fill the cavities of
the head, nose nnd throat, also'
lines the stomach, bowels, kidneys,
bladder and pelvic organs. Every
duet, every cavity, every passage ot
tho whole body Is subjected to chronlo
catarrh because they are lined with
mucous membrane.

When catarrh has pervaded several
organs of the body it is called systemic
catarrh. It may involve stomach,
bowels and kidneys, or liver without
disturbing the cavities of tho head at
all. People who have no catarrh In
the .head are apt to think they do not
have catarrh at all. A great many
people are slowly dying of catarrh
today of some of the internal organs,
without having the slightest Idea that
they are victims ofatarrh.
