i! to 5. This was the play upon which
the protest was made, and the game
ended In a tierce dispute. The ball was
not out of bounds. The ciowd surg
ing on tho field and covering the
boundary line caused the Dunmore
eleven to think the ball had eross.rl
the line. Tho game wns rjplet,.' with
lirljllu'ht plays and the crowd, which

voices ring melodiously In their ears
and feast their eyes upon faces that
hud a strangely familiar look. The
hearts and nomes thus gladdened were
happy abodes for the son and daugh
ter, or brother and sister who had loft
this peaceful city to till out their lives
In other and perhaps wider fields, were
"home" again. And the dimming eyes
of some old gray-haired mothers filled
with the dews of a swelling bosom as
they rested lovingly upon the face of
the child who had gone out in the
world to win fame or fortune, and af
ter a long, sad absence, had come
back for another kiss from the trem
bling lips nnd to hear the sweet, well
remembered tones of mother's voice,
grown mellower with the flight, of time
since lie told her all his boyish roubles
and cares and was soothed by the
sympathy and love that was his balm.
On next Thanksgiving Day some of
these dear old mothers will not be here,
and the yearly pilgrimage will not be
.tnken by the son, but a pang will
steal to his heart as he remembers
the days ot his boyhood and the lasi
Thanksgiving Day lie spent with her.

Other News Notes.
Tito nnnual union Thanksgiving ser
vices were held hi tho Tripp Avenuo
Christian church yesterday morning.
The congregation was. the largest that
has attended this service In many years
The church wns handsomely decorated
with waving ferns and beautiful white,
chrysnnthemums, the splendid big
autumn Mowers giving a very pleasing
efrect to the loom. The musical pro
gramme was very ably carried out
by the choir, composed of singers from
the various churches in town. The solo
"On the Golden Threshold," wns very
beautifully rendered by Mrs. Horatio
Keller, of Scranton. The organ was
presided over by Miss Blackmail, ot
Wyoming scmlnery.
Rev. J. D. Dnbney, ot Christian
church, road nn appropriate passage
of scripture after which a very fer
vent prayer wns offered by Rev. W. F.
Gibbons, of tho Presbyterian ohuroh.
The president's Thanksgiving procla
mation wns then read by Rev. J. L.
Krenmer, of the Baptist church.
The Thanksgiving sermon was de
livered by Rev. A. J. Vnn Cleft, of the
M. E. church. In his usual happy man
ner. Among other things he said;
We are aemlilcd hero toilay In accordance
with the call ot the luesictent of the United
Ktnlps and ot the (tencrnor of this common
ucnlth, to thank find not alone for our country
ml 1U 1lcs.srtl Institution!, but also for the nn.
tnoroui mercies and bindings of tho past .voir.
With tho IVjlmlst we can say, "Tlinu ciown
eth the your nlth thy goodness," There Ii much
to he thankful for. Wo have hJil this year
ahtindant harvotn. There lia.i tieen mi usual
vlold of fruits and grains. Our land his been
man eloinly productive. Labor has been te
w.irdcd and the Industries uf our country have
been more prosperous than tor many years past.
No pe'tllcnce has gone abroad in our hind,
and no great ialauiltio have Lif.illcii tho dlfter
ent pails of our country, save tlut which over
whelmed the city ot Galveston; nnd as the
picsldcnt has well said, this has made evident
the sentiments of sympathy and Christian char
ity. Dy virtue of which we arc a united people.
The president says "our commerce has spread
over the world. That our power nnd influence
in the cause of freedom and ciilichtenment
have CTtcnded over distant sens and lands."
Wc have reason to be thankful for the unlet,
jet Rtcady advance made in the schools of our
country, and the increased interest in the sub
ject of education. Kspcclally in the southern
states. Another reason for thanksgiving is the
providential care and deliverance of our mis
sionaries fiom the savage hordes of the Boxers
in China.
We can only attribute the ni.uvdous deliver
ances to providential interference. We thank
God today for the advancement the churches have
made. While the incicasc in membership has
not been as large ns some j'cars yet the divine
watch-care has been strikingly manifested. A
spirit of revival is alnoad in the land and it
looks as if it was to become general. That this
may be the case is my prayer.
I thank God for the union thanksgiving ser
vile, but especially for the union meetings
which arc being held. That the membership of
the dlffeicnt chinches can join hands and sing,
"litest lie the tie that binds our hearts in Chris
tian love." That wo lie Baptists, Christians,
l'Kshvtcrians and SlethodisU but also that we
bo bicthrcn hrctluen of one common Lord, chil
dicn of one common Father. Thank God for
The limit of tlmo f 01 bids tlut I continue
longer the enumeration of the favors ot our
hcneilrcnl Father. It remains for us to yiy that
thee many blessings not only inspire gratitude,
but they place us under corresponding obliga
tions. Then while we ollor our thank-giving tu
our God today for Ills cvor watchful, merciful
and gracious providential caie over us, wc pray
the Holy Sphit to guide u, and aist us in
the inquiry.
The speaker also gave a brief outline
of some of the duties devolving unon
citizens of the United States at this

( Often Caum of Bad Health,
That bad health and coed living often
go together as cause and effect ia a prop,
oiltlon which will be accepted at once
by anv practising physician. Common
sense living would demand that we ate
only when hungry and that food should
be clioscn first tor its nutritive value and
then for its palaUbleness. So-called
"good living" reverses these rules.
Meals are taken at stated hours without
reference to hunger or physical require
ments. If appetite is lacking, stimulat
ing cordials or liquors are often used to
induce a false appetite, I'ood is not
chosen with regard to its nutritive value
but for its pleasure to the palate. As a
natural result the stomach is over-loaded
with a quantity of innutritions material
and the body is deprived of its due nour
ishment. Presently disease of the stom
ach and digestive and nutritive systems
begins, frequently involving heart, liver,
kidneys and other organs,
gives every man the opportunity for
good living, and almost every man takes
advantage of the opportunity. The aver
age laborer iu the united States lives as
only very prosperous people can live in
Europe. He lives too well. It is a sing
ular thing to say but it is nevertheless a
fact that one of' the greatest evidences of
national prosperity is found in the great
army of dyspeptics which is being newly
recruited every day in the year by good
livers. The great trouble is that when
a mar wakes up to the fact that his stom
ach can't be abused with impunity, the
damage is already done. He has joined
the army of dyspeptics, the people with
"weak" stomachs. He can't eat much
now without it hurts him. His stomach
seems unduly distended after eating.
There are bitter risings and belchings,
a constant feeling; of discomfort and
weight in the region of the stomach.
Probably, too, the liver becomes sluggish,
and there is a feeling of lassitude with
These are only a few of the signs and
symptoms of a diseased stomach involv

Disease won't cure itself, so that it's
folly to neglect treatment thinking "it
will be all right again after a time."
Disease never stands still, so that every
day's delay in using the right treatment
means a worse condition.
" I was a great sufferer from dyspepsia
for over two years, and I was a complete

Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Mason narrowly
suffered much with conittpattoa. I tried
many different medicines which were
recommended to cure the trouble but
these only made me worse and my con
dition was more sluggish nnd weak than
before. My stomach was in such n weak
condition that the least and easiest kind
of food to digest would get sour in my
stomach and I had such n weak and de
bilitated appearance that it seemed as if
I had hardly any blood in my whole
body. Muscles were soft and flabby,
circulation poor and slow. Suffered
greatly from cold hands and feet. At
last I came across an advertisement of
Dr. Pierce's. I wrote to them for a
question Hat blank which I filled out
and returned to them stating my symp
toms nnd pains. To my great surprise I
received by return malf the best and
most substantial advice that 1 ever be
fore read. Thia advice gave me the
greatest confidence in the world's Dis
pensary Medical Asaocla
tion, even so great that I
at once left off all former
remedies and tried Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery and 'Pleasant
Pellets.' I uacd about
eight vials of the ' Pellets'
nnd ten bottles of the
'Discovery which
brought me back to my
former state of health."
not in monopoly but iu
medicine. The medicine
that has the might and
power to cure such a dis
eased condition as Mr.
Penstermacher's is the
right medicine to use for
the cure of similar forms
of disease. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discov
ery cures diseases of the
stomach and other organs
of digestion and .nutri
tion. t It enables the per
fect digestion and assimi
lation of food so that the

by food perfectly digested and assimi
lated. Organs remote from the stomach
are often involved with it in disease be
cause of its failure to supply the nutri
tion on which tiie strength of each organ
depends. "Golden Medical Discovery"
enres these diseases ot heart, liver, lungs,
kidneys and other organs, by curing the
cause of disease in the stomach and its
allied organs of digestion and nutrition.
"I have received more benefit from
your medicine than anything I have
taken," writes Mrs. N. Bernier,' of 461
Kim Street, Oshkosh, Wis. " I had liver
complaint for the last fifteen years, com-
? Heated with dyspepsia and gall stones,
have doctored with seven of our promi
nent doctors and not one or all ot them
have done uie the good, nor began to do
what your medicines have. I have used
three bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery, one vial of his ' Pleasant
Pellets' and one bottle of Dr. Pierce's
Pavorite Prescription, and have gained
about eighteen pounds since I first began
to take these remedies. Can say truth
fully that your medicine is the best I
ever found for liver complaint and dys
pepsia." There is no alcohol in " Golden Medical
Discovery" and it is entirely free from
opium, cocaine and all other narcotics.
Sometimes the dealer tempted bythe
little more profit paid by less meritorious
medicines will offer a substitute for
"Golden Medical Discovery" claiming
that it is "just as good." Substitutes
are always suspicious. The only way to
be sure of the cure you seek is to get tha
medicine which cured others "Golden
Medical Discovery."
