PLYMOUTH MAN HAS INVENT

hus an application pending for a pat
ent on un Improved automatic car
coupler. The contrivance Ih designed
to work on any cur, whether in tho
mines or on the willroads, and If udopt
ed it will be the means of saving many
lives and limbs. It Is constructed In
such a manner that there Is no neces
sity whatever of going between the
cars to open or close it. As tho cars
nre bumped together they couple, and
by lifting a light lever on the side they
become uncoupled. Tho working model
shows an upright bolt which drops Into
u notch on each car as they come to
gether. It Is practicable on any curve
or grade of the road or angle of the
The couplings at present In use on
the railroads of the country aie a de
cided Improvement upon the old meth
od, but Mr. Stubbleblne's invention is
apparently far In advance of tho latter.
With this Improved coupling the dan
ger of wrecks by the present compli
cated contrivance falling to the tracks
Is removed ami the rallioads of the
country as well us the employes will
be the gainers. It Is the Intention of
tho inventor to see the practical rail
road managers of this section, with a
view to having them use his coupling
so that Its merits may be fully demon-t-trated.
Overall Makers Meet.
The first convention of overall man
ufacture! s over held In this country
met yesterday at the Hotel Albert, 42
Kast Eleventh street, and formed a
national association. Delegates were
present from about twenty cities. Tho
object of the convention was to devise
ways of putting a stop to competition,
which, it is alleged, is reducing the
margin of profit year by year, until It
Is no longer profitable to manufacture
some of the cheaper grades.
The new organization Is to be known
as tho National Association of Me
chanics' Garment Manufacturers and
will include the manufacturers of
workingnxM's blouses, jumpers and
working clothes as well as overalls.
The following officers were elected:
1'iesident, II. S. Peters, Dover, X. J.;
vice-president, Moses Morris, Balti
more; secretary, Theodore A. "White,
Seranton, Pa., and treasurer, A. Bush,
Detroit. New York Sun.
Steam Plant Completed.
The new steam making plant which
lias been installed nt the Hampton
breaker by the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western company is about com
pleted and ready for use.
A few of the batteries have already
been fired up, and thus far have prov
en satisfactory. The plant will supply
steam for the Hampton breaker and
washery, Continental, Hyde Park,
Sloan and Central collieries.

A Simple Internal Remedy Makes
Itemnrkablo Cures of Catarrh.
People who have used sprays, in
halers, salves mid washes for catarrh
and have found how useless and In
convenient they nre, will bo agreeably
surprised at results following tho use
of a pleasant, Internal remedy In lab
lot form; druggists everywhere admit
that Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, which
they soli at no cents for full sized
treatment, Is tho safest, most effective
and popular of nil' catarrh remedies.
Nearly nil cheap cough mixtures and
throat lozenges contain opiates; these
cheap medicines give u temporary re
lief, especially with little children by
destroying nerve sensation; the Irrita
tion In throat, which causes coughing
Is temporarily removed, not by remov
ing the cause, but by deadening tho
nerves of feeling the Irritation Is not
felt although it Is still there and will
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is the best
remedy to remove catarrhal secretion,
whether In the nose, throat or stomach
because they are composed of whole
some antiseptics like Red Gum, lJlood
Hoot, etc.; when you use those tablets
you know what you are putting Into
your system and not taking chances
with cocaine, opiates or similar poi
sons found in so many catarrh cures
and cough medicines.
Dr. Ramsdell, In commentlnc on ca
tarrh cures, says: "I can heartily rec
ommend Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, be
cause they contain no cocaine nor oth
er dangerous drug found In so many
advertised catarrh cures. I have
known of many cases of long standing
catarrh of the head and throat com
pletely cured by the dally use of these
tablets for several weeks. One case In
particular, which I could not reach
with an inhaler or spray and where
tho catarrh caused dally headaches
and a noticeable loss of hearing was
entirely cured by this harmless but ef
Dr. Walnwrlght bays: "I never hesi
tate to prescribe Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets for catarrhal headaches and ca
tarrhal deafness because I know them
to be perfectly safe for child or adult
and have seer, many remarkable cures
resulting from their regular dally use;
because they are advertised and sold
in diug stores is no reason why any
good physician should not use them
because we should seize upon the
means of euro wherever found."
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are espe
cially valuable for catarrhal colds in
children because they are pleasant to
he taste and may be used freely to
break up severe colds and croup at the

This January Sale of 1902 will 'surpass any previous sale,
as to quantity and quality of goods offered, good as were the
garments sold at previous sales, the lines we show today are
vastly superior at the same prices. The splendid success
achieved by us in this department, and the praise bestowed
upon our goods, speak more eloquently in their behalf thaln any
eulogistic words in our power to bestow.
8c to $3.75
The 8c Corset Cover is
made of Cambric, well fin
ished. This is the lowest
price in these little gar
ments. Others at 12J4c
19c and up to $3.75,
19c to $4.50
The 19c Drawers are
made of Masonville Muslin.
Splendid value, but not any
better value than those at
