A SUMMER DAY'S
Aired Before Aldorman Jones Olo
Pratt's Fun Objected to by Ooorge
Piorce, His Victim Troublo Over
Two B-cont Chunks of Ico A Hoap
of "Cool" Talk Before tho Alder
man Bottles tho Difficulty.
There weie two cases before Alder
man Jones yesterday, which offered
enough amusement to make one forget
for u while that It was leatly waim.
The Hi st one was what you might
call a funny assault and battel y case.
That's wheie the tiouble seemed to Ho,
one of the pa I tics had what he thought
was fun: he had so much of It all to
himself that to squaie matters his vic
tim sought icdress In the law.
Ole Piatt, nn employe at Emery
Leo's livery, was tho man who seemed
to have all of the fun. Oeoige Pierce
was the man who objected, Pierce's
woik brings him to Lee's livery, nnd
on several occasions Piatt would lay
hold of the foimer's hat and push It
down over his eyes. Ho would vary
this performance by smashing Tierce's
hat or knock It mound until It looked
like the one In tho hat repairer's llltis
1 1 a tlon of "befoto" nnd "after." On
nuother occasion Piatt would hnve
some fun by pulling off the ilm of the
hat, nnd again the sweat hand would
bo tipped otf. Pierce couldn't see any
fun In this sort ot fun. It might be
fun for the other fellow, but It wasn't
for him, especially since each perform
ance of the funny business cost him
$1 fn. the price of his hats. Pierce also
said he was handled roughly by Piatt
dining the hitter's funny streaks, and
altogether theie was sufficient, ho
thought, to make out a case of assault
Piatt, who looks as funny as he
seemed to be In these Instances, made
no denial of the charges, so the alder
man held him In $200 ball. Abe Sahm
furnished the security.
"How would jou like to be the Ice
man."' would be a pertinent ques
tion during the hearing of the second
ase. It was an Ice case, that Is, there
was enough said about Ice to make
you feel Just a bit cool, notwithstand
ing tho Scrnnton weather man's heat
waves fiom oer Vancouver way.
It seems that a Mrs. J. F. Peteison,
of the lower part of town, bought a
chunk of Ice from the Iceman yester
day morning Tho iceman was ppu
lar In that vicinity, for a Mrs. Ward
bought another chunk of coldness; also
two other neighhois. The four pieces
were placed on the .sidewalk. Young
Peteison, son of tho pioseculor, went
for tin expiess wagon to cart his
mother's puuiiasc home, but when he
leturned the piece that ho had selected
was gone, nnd on tracing It it was
found In tho Ward home. Mis. Peter
son got her five cents worth and stni t
ed home, but wns mot at the gate by
VVllllam Waul, who, she says, struck
her. Hence the charge ot assault and
This Is the Peteison version of the
tiouble. The Ward tnnilly gae It an
other color. Mrs. Ward said she didn't
take the piece of Ice that belonged to
Mrs. Peterson. The blocks of frigidity
weie placed on the sidewalk, with none
of them for nny particular patty. It
was a case of "you pays your price and
takes your choice." Ward, the de
iendant, contributed his pait of tho
story, which was that he didn't stifke
Mis. Peteison, only pushed her aside;
and that ouns Peteison called him a
name, a couple of them, that he was
certain wasn't taught him In his Sun
day school clnss.
After all tho talk about Ice, the al
derman seemed somewhat refreshed,
nnd was nble to give his decision with
out mopping his forehead or tace, as
he had been doing all morning. Ho held
Ward In ball to answer nt court, and
released him on his furnishing secur
ity. Back from Fan-Amerioan.
Assistant Tostmaster John Nealon
and Mrs. Nealon are home from a de
lightful stay at the Pan-Ameilcan.
Mr. Nealon was particularly lnteiest
ed and pleased w 1th the splendid mall
car which tho Delawaie and Hudson
company has among Its exhibits. There
was probably only one thing at the ex
position that dlf-appolnted Mr. Nealon.
That was the building which lepresents
the big state of Pennsylvania, which
caused numbers to make the comment
that It looked more like a fair-sized
summer hotel thi.n a state building.

"Fortunately, n member of our Order
advised mc to try Peruna and gave It
rfuch high praise that 1 decided to try
It, Although 1 started In with little
faith, I felt so much better In a week
that I felt encouiaccd.
"I took It faithfully for seven weeks
and am hannv Indeed In be nble to say
that I am entirely cured. Words fall to
expiess my gratitude. Perfect health
once more Is the best thing I could
wish for, and thanks to Peruna 1 enjoy
that now." Minnie E. McAllister.
Tho great popularity of Peiuna as a
catanh icmedy has tempted many
people to Imitate Peruna. A great
many so-called catanh remedies and
catarrhal tonics aie to be found In
many thug stoics. These remedies can
be piocured by the dtuggists much
cheaper thnn Peruna. Peruna can only
ho obtained at a uniform price, nnd
no druggist can get It n cert cheaper.
Thus It Is that druggists me tempted
to substitute the cheap Imitations of
Peruna for Pciunn. It Is done ovety
day without a doubt.

SAVED INNOCENT LIVES.
Washington correspondence of July
IS states that It Is now apparent from
mall icports which have Just reached
the State Depaitment from China that
It was solely through the moderation
and humanity by the tepresentatlves
of the t'ntted States at Peking, by tho
presidents direction. In tho eaily no
gotlatlona for a settlement of the Box
er trouble, that a numner of Innocent
llxes weie not sacrificed. These re
ports show that a more sober and
painstaking Inquiry has developed thl
fact that some of the Chinese ofllclall
Mipposcd to hnve been connected with
the Boxer outtnges, whose capital
punishment was demanded by the
foreign mlnlsteis, hive been proved to
be entirely Innocent of the charges
madu agatnHt them. In manj
other cases ptoof has been secured thnl
the offenses with which the Chlnefa
official weie chaigcd weie not neaily
so giavo as was foiipposed at first by the
foielgn leptesentatlves at Peking,
Theiefore It is legarded heie by officials
ns a niattet for congratulation that
Messrs. Conger and Rockhlll moved
with dellbeiatlon nnd acted n a ic
stialnlng Influence In regard to punish
ments, not only wen- these lives saved,
but under their Influence tho whole
list of capital puntences was reduced
from ten to four, and mitigation feu
other Influences was obtained.
