AN EASY WAY.
To Keep Woll.
It Is insy to keep well If we would
only observe- each day a few slmplo
lilies' of health.
The nil Important thing Is to keep
the stomach right nnd to do this It I
nol necesrary to diet or to follow a
set rule or bill of fare. Such pam
peilng simply makes a capricious ap
petite end a feeling that certain fa
vorite nrllchs of food must be avoided.
Prof Wilchold gives pretty good nd
vice on thin subject: he sayr: "I am
fiS yeais-old and have never had n
seiloua lllties.o, nn.l at the same time
my life l.ns been largely nn Indoor one,
but I early discovered that the way to
keep healthy was to ketp a benlthy
stomach, not by catlap Dran eraekein
or dlctlns. of any sort: on the con
ttnry I always cat what my appetite
craves, but for tho pat clalil years
I have mnde It a dallv practice to
take one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets after each meal and I attrib
ute my lobust health for a man of my
age to the 1egt1l.it dally use of Stuatt's
My phyrlclau llist advised me to
t:sr them becausu he hutd they were
peifectly haimlcss and were not it se
cret patent im.dk Inc. but contained
only the natural digestives, peptones
and dlr.tare, and after using them a
few weeks I have never ceased to thank
him for his advice.
"I honestly believe the habit of tak
ing Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after
iiwals Is the real health habit, because
their .J1H0 brings health to the sick and
ailing and preserves health to the well
Men and women past fifty veins of
age need u i,afo digestive after meals
to Insure a perfect digestion and to
wind off disease, and tlie safest, best

.sinli was me opciallon ol Hie .let of 1?TJ. pre
mnalily well known lo ihe pi tllionei., and such
wen the letulls It accomplished, t'nder the
pii'tcctlon It aiforded the meritorious tontestanl',
the petitioners be'gan the eontest. While Ihe ap

by llio lotes, inc petitioners succeeded in show
Ins tint twenty nine lllei-il ote hail been cat
(or him, thus app.iiently establishing their sin
cerity in bringing Hie pion'cdinc. If the
learned Judge of the couit below had been con
duced of their good faith, thej would, under
Hie act of IsTI, hale escaped the pajinent of the
costs, thoiiLh they did not socci'cd in haling
alsh declared the duly elected conlabIe ot the
watd. llm, under the act of .9l, Hie contest
lulling tailed, ihe eouit is without discretion
in imposing the costs, and they fall on the peti
tioners regardless of their good filth in institut
ing the proceedings. It Is thus appaient tint
Ihe dl-poiitlon ol Ihe costs under the ait of ls09
is illflerent from whit the petitioner! had reison
In delict e il would be when tney begin Ihe pio
ceeclltiK'. and Hut Hieicb.t. under the facts of
Ihe case, manifest Injustice- will be done Ihcm If
they arc subjecled to Hi" protlslons of the act
ol lsRi. As we hate seen, under the authorities
cited, such conMructlous should not be giicn lo
th act of le-fl which will accomplish that le
suit, nnlei such appears to hate been dearly
the intention of the legislature.
The ninth section of the act of ls'19, is n
hate fcen, imposes the rois In contested elec
tions upon the petitioners if the contest be un
fucci'ssliil. The section, however, does not stop
hoie, and its ulemient pioijslotis make It e-ti-ch
nt that II was intenelerl to operate only upon
future contests, lu all cases to which the section
Is applicable, the petitioners aie required within
ten diy alter llllng (heir petition to glte a bond
'conditioned for the pnnunt of all ce.t-t which
may actiiie in sild conleelid election proceed
ings, In cise Hie said petllloncis by decree nf
slid court shall be ,idudgid liable to piv said
i-osts, and If Iho said bond chill not be tiled
the said petition in contest the election
shall be dismissed." The pcnaltt thus Imposeel
upon un tiiieiicc Mful contestant and the condi
tions upon which all contests are permitted to
be mule are eliiTeient fiom those of tlie art of
1S7I, and enllicly inconsistent with an Inten
tion lo make the act ed in applicable to tieivl
ing contests. In such cases the petition has been
hied and tlie contest begun and proceeded in
pnor in the paage of the act. 'Ihe bond can
not be te'ipiired of the petitioners, ns the leinied
couit below teiy proper"' held, and hence the
filluie lo tile It would ciu-e Ihe diuiial of
Ihe pel il Ion. 'lhco Ho,ullie of the act of lel'i
cannot be entoiceil in a pending contest.
We aie, then fore, of opinion Hut Ihe statute
itself shows Hi it the Intent of the leglslalmp lu
tint enactment wis to coulinc Its opeiation In fu
tme contests, If this Is not cltatly the object,

hasty date for a summer excursion
(that you may want to cancel) until
you have looked through Lake Henry

will ho paid. It Is tho nearest to

railroad grades. But forty minutes
from Scranton. It does not take half
