Iho Illicit Saloon Near Lake Lodore
Raided and Contents Confiicatod
by Acting County Detective Ed
ward Neary Tim Brady, the
Keeper, and Companions Take to
The village of Waymart. which was
ptlrrcd as never hefore a few weeks
ago. when the dead body of Ldwln
Fchoonovcr was found, was agitated
ataln yesterday, though this disturb
fince was less seveie. but marked by
more excitement. when Constable
Kdward Neary, of this city, who Is
acting county detective of Wayne
county, brought about the downfall
of the 'Capitol of Wnymnit"
The "Capltol of Waymait." as It
has been styled, was an illicit saloon,
the reputed owner of which was one
Tim Biady, not from the confines of
Wnymait, but who halls from some of
the big cities. Hrady selected the
spot on which the "capltol" stood to
carry on his illegal tr.ifllc became he
believed the residents In that lclnlty
were. In the cxpiesslve language of
"Chuck" Conuois. "oay uiaiks." The
place was Just outside the limits of
the glove at Lake Lorloie. and Hracly
sized It up as a "cinch" to catch the
thirsty ciowd that might accompany
an exclusion which would not dispone
of any able-bodied lefreshments on
the picnic giouuds. nut Brady made
an trior of iudciue.it. both as to tile
Idea of the "easiness" of the "inmks"
that ho thought weie about Waymart
Mild the belief that he could conduct
the unlicensed place with Impunity
He did not reckon on the fact that one
Lafayette Smith abided In Wavmart
and that Lafayette was the village
policeman, a pood and pioper man
when it came to enfotcing the law. It
might be said as e.planatoi, that
Lafayette pionuunccs the flist syla

rnor of saying La-fayette

would say fuitlier. "got next" to the
fact that the "capltol" was doing a
flout Ishlng business. Thh was on
Wednesday, and when h was suie of
his ground, he took means to suppress
the business and e.ul the caicer of
tlie "capltol." He notilled Acting
County Detective Neary. who went
to Wnmart yeMeida morning on
the Hist Main that would take him
there. Policeman Lafayette was on
hand to meet him and guide him to
the scene of the active speakeasy.
Secretive as was Lafaette and as cli
rumspoet a1! he showed himself to be
in approaching the work of extinc
tion the news leaked out that he was
on the trail of too pioprletor of the
"capltol," and when the pair reached
the one-Mery hotel, no one was within,
but ill the distance could be seen four
oi five pilrs of nimble tret, 'loping
f.iior thi. Hold. to the lofuge which
th woo'ls oifered to the flying men.
Detective Neaiv nor Policeman

wild i it ii had too rcteat a lead; but
they devoted tliemelpi to completing
the hst chapter of the i.neer of the
The "capltol." as stated before, is a
one-ftory building. Over the doorway
Is the sign that caught the passing
eye, while over one window the humor
of the Joker of the party was ex
pressed In the word "bed-room" ami
over another In the word "wash
irom." Inside their was a counter
lhat contrived to do duly as a bar,
hut thrie was no fancy glassware or
decanters "wisely kept for show."
There wete beer kegs, plenty of them,
hut thev were mostly empty. There
were whiskey tasks a few and a num
ber of hexes of clgais. Outside beer
birrels wcie heaped on each other,
evidence of the thriving business that
made the "capltol" flourish during Its
bilef but profitable existence.
The ofllcers thought that possibly
the "propiletoi ' and his associates
would hae more respect and fear for
the United States revenue laws, even
if they did laugh defiance at the local
authorities, but though the place was
carefully searched, no revenue license
rpnlrhe found either for the sale of
rfejuor or cigars. This fact was borne
In mind by County Detective Neary,
who fa acquainted the deputy United
States marshal nt Scranton.
The contents of the hotel were con
fiscated and taken to Hoiipsdale. In
the meantime, Dlstilct Attorney At
kinson, of Wayne county will prepare
evidence against the panics charged
with running the place and Indict
ments against them will be presented
at the next grand Jury at Hnncsdalc.
The downfall of the "capltol" Is n
big feather In the cap of Policeman
Smith, who always endeavors to ful
fill the. duties of the oiflce which he
has sworn to seivo with fidelity.

NO strong man ever had a "weak" stomach. Strength comes
from food properly digested and perfectly assimilated. When
the stomach is " weak " food is imperfectly digested, and the
nutriment provided for the body is insufficient to supply the daily losses
of the body by the waste and wear of its tissues. Hence, as the stom-
ach and allied organs of digestion and nutrition grow weaker, there is '
a daily overdraft charged up against the health account of the body. '
'I he saying that "Uhe way to a man's heart is through his
stomach " has a scientific application. Not only the way to a man's!
heart, but to his lungs, liver, kidneys, and every other organ, is,
tnrougn lits stomacn. All physical life is sustained by food. But food
sustains life only when it is chemically changed in the digestive pro
cesses so that it furnishes an assimilable aliment for the body. Coal
warms us only by combustion. Food feeds us only by digestion. It
would be as reasonable to fill the pockets with coal and expect to be
warmed by it without combustion, as it js to fill the stomach with food
and expectto get strong by it, without digestion.
Blood, the vital fluid, depends for its vitality on food. Heart,
lungs, liver, kidneys, nerves, all depend on the purity and richness of
I v'tJi njl"ilFMriBSSsv?Xt
(& WW vH
One of the first signs of failing health is loss of appetite. The
first thing that " Golden Medical Discovery " does is to restore the nor
mal appetite for food. But it would be of no use to do this unless it
did more. Usually when the stomach ceases to crave food it is because
there is an inadequate secretion of the digestive juices. To force food
on the stomach in that condition is only to clog it. It can't convert
the food into nutriment. It is essential, therefore, that with the re
stored appetite "Golden Medical Discovery" should restore the diges
tive and assimilative powers. That is just what it does. It stimulates
the flow of the digestive juices, increases the activity of the blood
making glands, cleanses the clogged channels, and enables the renewed
organs to pour a flood of pure, bright blood through every vein and
artery of the body. That is perfect health.
Fix the fact firmly in the mind that food properly digested and
perfectly assimilated is the only known source of vital strength and
vigor, and there will be no difficulty in understanding why the cures
by Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery include among other
maladies the cure of "weak lungs."
One of the prominent signs of consumption is emaciation. In
deed, the very name "consumption" means a consuming of tissues.
But the tissues of the body are being consumed every hour of every
day without detriment to health. What is there in this other con
sumption which makes it so fatal ? There is this ; In health the tissues
consumed daily are built up again by food. In disease the tissues con
sumed are not built up again by food. Hence, the emaciation of con
sumption. What's to be done? Use fish oils and invalid foods ? But
these are foods too. They recognize that if strength comes back to the
weak lungs it must be by food, but they ignore the fact that the
"weak" stomach must be strong before it can digest the food which
is to give strength to "weak lungs." This treatment attempts to bring
the character of the food down to the level of the weak stomach.
"Golden Medical Discovery " brings the strength of the stomach
up to the food. It puts the stomach and allied organs of digestion and
nutrition in the condition which permits the building1 of the body and
the nourishment of its organs in the only way known to Nature or to
science by food, properly digested and perfectly assimilated ; food
the life-sustaining properties of which, taken up by the blood, arc dis
tributed to every vital organ according to its need.

I suffered untold agony in both mmd and

take his 'Gold

I have taken four bottles each of the
