leal merit of Ontario and Western
.is ii speculative block, however, lies
In the fact that It Is the last lenialnlng
Independent coal road in Us terrltoiy,
and for that leason Is likely to bo
bought In by other interests."
The Philadelphia. .Stockholder prints
the following:
".Strong intcr'sts aio accumulating
Ontario and Western on the theory
that Its position is to bo greatly
strengthened in tho not far distant fu
ture. They argue that as It is the only
independent hard coal line l-ft, It Is
likely soon to -he acquired by tho big
anthracite coal combine on very favor
able terni!.. It .seems highly impiob
able that tho Interests behind tho big
Kimbluation will leave the scheme uii-
ompleted, 'when the Inclusion of one
more road Is .ibsolutely necessary for
dominance of Hi- trade. Net lecelpls
of the Ontario and Western tor the last
half of 1'jmii ! creased $10S,'J0ii. Last
loar'n sut plus was $s."i!),0;U, but insiders
s.iv that the cm rent .vein's net balance

Have "eyea bigger than their stomachs,"
according to an eld saying. They over
eat themselves, and are tempted by all
sorts of injurious and indigestible edi
bles. As a consequence the foundation
of serious stomach trouble is often laid
in childhood.
For children with "weak" digestion or
whose stomachs are diseased, Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery may
lie coufidently recommended. It cures
diseases of the stomach und other organs
of digestion and nutrition, so that the
nounaument contained in toou is per
fectly assimilated aud the puny child is
built up by food into a condition of
robust liealth.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
i ontalus neither alcohol nor narcotics,
Accept no substitute for " Golden Med
ical Discovery." There is nothing "just
as good " for diseases of the stomach aud
other organs of digestion aud nutrition.

We have done with that. You ask for news and that
it shall be daily talks about new things we have for
personal and household use; daily talks about special prices at
which you can buy very many things that you need now or
presently. The store is as newsy as your favorite newspaper,"
and each day's batch is worth reading every word of it. We
do not talk of paltry lots, but even big lots go out quickly, so
if you would be sure to get your share of any article we tell of,
come during the day the news is printed.
ft Connolly & Wallace Method
of Marking Embroideries.
There have been busy days among the Embroideries. The
resultant short lengths and broken assortments now have their
day. Take that literally. In addition to our broken assort
ments we have added large lots of short lengths in Edgings
and Insertings, ranging five and six yards to a piece, bought

City KiiKineer Joseph I'lillllpa believe.-;
that it is posblble fop tho Lack
awanna railroad to abandon the two
tracks which cross Itckawanna ave
nue, Just west ot' Franklin avenue,
and which form uhat U generally
termed the X and he will so advlfcc
councils hi reply to the lesolutton
adopted at last Thursday night's
Kiwtlmc.
5Ir. Phillips .iH'ileves lhat the com.
pany by tho construction ot a branch
from Its main line, about midway be
tween the West Lackawanna avenuo
and Tripp Park crossings, could easily
dhpcnsi- with the Y without any very
serious Interference with its business.
The V tracks at present aro used to
connect with the company's Miftllu
avenue swlti'h. and Oiit-n nidge
lrelpht station and also for the trans
fer of coal from the Diamond mine.
The construction of such a branch as
Mr. Phillips has In mind would neces
sitate the building of a viaduct or
trestllns as the main line of the com
pany between the Lackawanna ave
nue and Tripp crossings runs lor mo
most p.ut on a road bed about halt
way up the side of a hill.
It Is understood that when Mr.
Phillips' btatement regarding this mat
ter Is presented that councils will up
nnint 11 committee to wait upon Presi
dent Truesdale, of the company, and
aFk that he give the question of the
removal of the two tracks from the.
city's huslebt thoroughfare his careful
and serious consideration.
The city engineer has also been re
ciuested to furnish plans for and an
estimate of foot bridges over the
tracks, so that councils If they see fit
may authorize their const! uc-tlon In
ease th" Lackawanna company will
not consent to a removal of the track;",
which have come to bo a great an
noyance to the thousands of people on
fool, on ktreet cms and on vehicles
who ii-mi Lackawanna iivcnuo at this
point every day.
