WHO IS TO BLAME?
Question Regarding the Floods on
The city and the Delaware and Hud
son company are at loggerheads as to
which Is to blame for the damage re
sulting from Hoods near the Brooklyn
bridge. Superintendent Hose volun
teered to send any appliances to rem
edy the Hood when it occurred this
week, but he refused to send any men
to do the work. The residents in this
vicinity claim that the channel is too
small for to allow the amount of water
to go through, especially In freshet
seasons. The Delaware and Hudson
company built a dam across the stream
a short distance below the bridge, and
to this is laid the blame for the dam
ages being Incurred. There Is talk of
having the dam blown out so as to
nllow the main stream free passage
way. The formation of ice also ma
terially helps to cause the damages.

C. DITCHBURN DEAD.
One of Cnrbondnlc's Most Respected
Business Men Died Yesterday A
At 4.110 yesterday afternoon Camp
bell Dllchburu died ut his home on
C'autmn street. Tho news of his death
was keenly felt as he was one 'of tho
best known men" In the city and, was
respected by men In all walks ot life.
Fourteen years ago air. Dllcbburn
came to this city, starting In the
wholesale business In Hour, eggs, but
ter, etc. In that time ho made a name
for himself In a business way. Dur
ing these years In which he worked so
Industriously to build un a successful
business he came In contact with many
nf our citizens and by them his busi
ness methods were looked upon as n
model to follow. Justice to all was
tils motto and ho lived up to every
letter of that motto. Ho was a man
whom It was a pleasure to know, a
man of whom It was nn honor to be
known as n friend. His was true
friendship and worth more than gold
to any man who possessed it. Ho
made friends with all whom be has
had dealings with and not only made
friends but kept them. Once a friend
always a friend with him.. Possessed
to an exceptional degree of Intelli
gence, honor, energy and good judg
ment, Mr. Dltcbburn wis one of the
successful business men In the city.
In his battle for success lie met with
tho usual reverses to business men,
but with the true grit of a son of bonny
Scotland, ho combated successfully
again and rose higher than before.
Outside of his business life Mr. Ditch
burn was but seldom seen. He gath
ered comfort after his day's work In
his own home, surrounded by his lov
ing wife and his children. -Mr. Ditch
burn was a true Scotchman, but none
the less a true American. He lived up
to all his obligations, religious and
otherwise, and like a true Christian
spirit, laid down his life with patience
that was sublime.
He was taken 111 on Tuesday and Dr.
Harper called In attendance. He was
apparently Improving until shortly be
fore his death his wife and children
were at his bedside when the peaceful
Mr. Dltcbburn was born In Scotland
In 181," and In the year 1S6r, accom
panied by his brother David, ho came
to this country, taking up his resi
dence in Bradford county, York
state. After a few years there he re
moved to Scranton where he was en
gaged in tlie grocery business. Jn
18SS be came to this city, starting in
tlie wholesale business which he has
conducted since that time. Ills wife
and four children survive him: John,
Jessie, Alexander and Agues. Four
brothers, Thomas, of Tioga county.;
John; Des Moines, Iowa; James, Her-nlce,-
Pa.;. and David of this city. One
sister, Miss Margaret, of Jefferson
county, also survives him. He was :i
Mason and a leading and Influential
member of the Order of Odd Fellows.
The funeral arrangements have not

NOTES FROM D0RIE.
He Has Decided to Enter the Contest
for nn Office Which Is Considered
Dorrenco Huckley Hurdette was In,
yesterday, with his usuul weekly bud
get and handed his rolled manuscript
to The Tribune man. In his news let
ter bo announces his candidacy for the
office of constable In his section, nn
.pfllce. which Is termed Indecent by the
voters of Greenlletd. Dorle docs not
set forth any arguments In defence of
the olllce, but tells of his candidacy
In the following few words:
"There seems to be lots of dissatis
faction In our town In regard to the
men Hint are asking for tho olllco of
constable. This Is the way they talk
to me:- 'Say, Durdlck, why don't you
get some decent man to run for that
olllco'." Well, my answer Is 'no decent
man would take tho ofllce.' 'Why not
tuke It yourself,' they say to nic, and
one man told me yesterday morning
If you will take tho olllco I will see
that you are elected without any ex
pense to you. Now that Is qUlto a
temptation us tho ofllce would get
splendidly along with tax collector,
which I expect next year, but to be
called not a decent man would hurt
the feelings of my proud wife nnd
large family. As fnr as I am con
cerned, I don't care whut they call mo
so I get an olllce or two. Well, If my
neighbors tire bound to run a decent
man for the ofllce of constable, sail In
and elect me or any other man whom
you see lit. I don't think that any
voter Is under any obligations to the
so-called Union caucus. It was noth
ing but a fake.
"If I am the man you want Just let
your votes say so on election day, and
lf.it be the will of the majority that r
am the decent man for the Indecent
olllce, I will do what I think Is my
duty, regardless of friend or foe.
"I was tho guest recently of the
Columbia lire laddies at their fair and
their reception committee certainly
treated me line. The ladles and young
men all appeared quite glad to see me,
and I made finite a few friends. "When
they heard I was looking for olllce they
wanted to know If they could not help
mo by moving out to our section. I
appreciated their decision, but did not
like to have them leave here, and so
they will not come out. They left tho
decision in my hand and I decided In
favor of Cnrbondale. I have to leave
now as I am due at a rally tonight.

CHANGE OF LIFE
Some Sensible Advice to Women by
Mrs. E. Sailer
President German Eelief Association, Los Angeles, OaL
Owinpr to modern methods of living,' not one vromnn In a thousand ap
proaches this perfectly naturnt change without experiencing a trnin of very
nunoylng nnd sometimes painful symptoms.
Thoso dreadful hot flashes, sending tho blood surging to the heart until It
noonis rendy to burst, and the faint feeling that follows, sometimes with chills,
ns If tho heart were going to stop for good, arc only n fow of the symptomn of
a dangerous nervous trouble. Tho norves nro crying out for assistance. Tho
cry should bo heeded in time. Lyiliu 12. PliiKlmm'8 Vcgctnljlo Com
pound was prepared to meet the needs of woman's system nt this trying
period of her life, nnd nil women who tiso it pass through this trying period
with comfort nnd safety.
MKS. E. SAILER.
"Di:.n Sins. Pinkhaji: When I passed through what is known
ns change of life,' I had two years' suffering;, sudden heat, and as
quick chills would pass over me ; my appetite was variable and I never
could tell for a day at a lime how I would feel tho next day. Five
bottles of TiYiliu K. Pinkhaiii'.s Vepetnulc Compound changed all
that, my days became days of health, and I have enjoyed every day
since, now six years.
"Wo have used considerable of your Vegetable Compound in our
charitable work, as we find that to restore a poor mother to health so
she can support herself tpid those dependent upon her, if such there be,
is truer charity than to give other aid. You have my hearty endorse
inunt, for you have proven yourself a true friend to suffering women."
Mns. E. Sailek, 7:iiii Hill St., Los Angeles, Cal.
When one stops to think about tho good Mrs. Sailer derived from Mrs.
Pinkham's advice and medicine, it seems almost beyond belief yet it is all
true as stated in her letter published above at her own request.
Jfo other medicine in f lie world lias received such widespread
and unqualified endorsement. Refuse nil substitutes.
As a matter of positive fact Mrs.'Pinhham has on file thousands of letters
from women who have been safely carried through that danger period
"Change of Life." Mrs. Sailer's cure is not an unusual one for Airs. PiuU
linin's medicine to accomplish.
Xo other person can ;ivo such helping advice to women who
are sick as can Mrs. Pinkluun, for none have had such a great
experience her address is Lynn, Mass., and lier advice free if
you are side write her you are foolish if you don't.

With a Cold
Cntarrlt Is n
to yield (o or
ment. Catarrh usually starts with n cold In
tho head and left unchecked in .this
climate, rarely gets well ot Itself.
As fresh cold Is taken tho disease
spreads, getting deeper and dcopcr,
creeping nlong tho mucous membranes
from nose to throat, from throat to
windpipe,- from windpipe to bronchial
tubes nnd from bronchial tubes to lung
The mucous membranes ull connect
ono with another. Hence It Is easy to
spread from one part to another lined
with this same ineinbmno. This is why
catarrh In tho bend soon affects tho
throat and finally the stomach Itself,
bringing on chronic catarrh of tho
stomach, which is a most obstlnato
form of dyspepsia. '
Everybody Is now well agreed that
catarrh Is a blood disease and not a
local one, and tho nttempt to curQ.J.;y
local applications simply gives tem
porary relief from the purely locnl
symptoms without the remotest effect
In staying tho progress of the disease.
There Is n new preparation recently
offered to tho public that is apparently
destined to do away with every other
form ot catarrh treatment.
This new remedy Is not a secret
patent medicine, but it is u large,
pleasant tasting tablet composed ot
Bloodroot, Red gum from the Eucalyp
tus tree, and other vnluublo and harm
less specifies, which are tnken Internal
ly and seem to have a remarkably
beneficial effect upon the blood and
mucous membranes, apparently 'elimi
nating the cutarrhal poison from the
whole system. i t
Thoso tablets, while being pleasaitj
convenient and absolutely safe to uge
have made cures In long standing
cases of catarrh that are little short
of marvelous. They aro sold by drug
gists under name of Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets, and nny catarrh sufferer who
has tried Inhalers, lotions, ointments,
salves, etc, and realized their Incon
venience and uselessness will fully ap
preciate the difference between a mere
pallative and a pretnanent cure after
giving Stuart's Catarrh Tablets an
All druggists sell them at 50 cents
for full sized package and no matter
where the catarrh Is located, in the
head, throat, lungs or stomach, Stuart's
Catarrh Tablets will surprise you with
tho effective result of even a fow days
rapid speed. Tho work In .repairing
the Holdeti mine' and colliery is also
being pushed to rapid completion..
