Carbondale Council, Knights of Co
lumbus, Negotiating for the Old
Moflltt Homestend, on South Main
Tlu Carbondide council, Knights of
Columbus, will likely have u club
house, and soon. Negotiations are in
Iirogross for the old Moftllt homestead,
on South Main street. A committee
from the Columkustles has conferred
with James Coughlln, si' who recent
ly purchaspd the properly, and had a
satisfactory interview with him. It ia
understood that the new owner Is
willing to make the necessary repairs
and changes about the homestead, and
to receive n rental that meets with the
favor of the council. The probabili
ties, therefore, are that u home for
the Knights is in sight, a possibility
which It has long been hoped to real
ize. A cltb house for the Knights would
be one of the greatest factors in the
life of the council. It would give the
organization an Impetus that would
manifest itself In many directions.
Not only would it show itself in the
council's development, but it would
mean a good deal to the social life of
the town. This is true of the Cai
bondale Bicycle club and It would bo
equally true of the Knights o Colum
bus in the event of their coining into
possession of a club house. It ha.3
long been locognlzed, as it must be in
every like organization, that without a
home, a club house, with ample ac
comodations for members and facili
ties for entertaining, that the council
has been retarded In its development
and that this could not be overcome
until the club was a certainty. After
lasting about for some time for an
acceptable place, there is now a hope
ful prospect of the Knights being
pleasantly located before long in their
own homo.

A Man From Horrlck Comes to Town
and Meets Cnrbondnlo Jokers A
Municipal Water Story.
He was from Ilcrrlck Centre. "Hor
rlck Centre," said he, In a "Lafe"
Smith whisper, "Is my home, but
Unlondalo Is my town."
This Herrlck Centre man came Into
one of the Carbondalo hotels the other
clay and fell Into the hands of several
of the town's jokers. Ho had a "Lafe"
Smith beard, u pair of buckskin glows
unci u rod handkei chief was his muf
ller. "Say," came the "Lafe" Smith
whisper, "there hain't ;t man here by
the name of Michael; he's from South
Cllbson, and I wouldn't inlnd seen'
"Michael, did you suyV" asked the
"klddcr" of the crowd. "1 know hlin;
he's a broker from South Gibson, Isn't
he? You'll find him at the Peddler's
Ilest, 'round the corner."
"Broker," asked the Herrlck Centie
man with a thoughtful look. "Broker:
now I don't know, but I know he's got
a lame leg."
"Say," said tho "klddcr," when the
laugh subsided, "do you believe Mars
Is inhabited';"
"Now, I, can't just say as to that,
but I did read In the weekly that some
man was tijing to talk to the foll.s
up there."
"Sure," continued the "klddor," "they
signal to Mars every day now. You
see they have"a flag as big as the state
of Pennsylvania nnd a pole about two
thousand miles high; they built the
pole like they do ice machines, right
up in the air."
By this time the Herrlck Centre
Unlondulc man was what "Chuck"
Connors would call "all in." He got
up from his scat and looked around
for a place to put his packages.
"Put them In tho stove," said the
"kider," "nobody will touch them

him was In inquiring for the "Fiddler's
This Is u "municipal" water story.
Besides being a fertile topic of discus
sion and the cause of divers opinions,
the municipal water project lias fur
nished many a good story.
One of the best of these stoiies Is told
of a West Side resident, a witty son of
Erin, who is heart and soul in tho
movement. So much so is he in earnest
that everybody who is not shouting
free water is according to his opinion
is "agin" the movement. Ho was one of
the witnesses called by the city to
piovc that the water furnished West
Side residents was not up to the stand
ard. "Tell the court, please, your opinion
as to tho, water you have to drink?"
"Your honor," said tho West Sider,
his rich brogue filling the court room.
"Your honor, sure there's bait enough
comes through my tap to keep Vint
Kearney nshln' up at the mud pond
all winter." Vint is one of the winter
fishermen of the town.
Celebrated Last Night by Knights
of Father Mathew.
Latit night was an eventful one In
the history of the Knights of Father
Mathew, the oldest organization of tho
younger members in the total absti
nence movement in Carbondale. It
was the twenty-fifth anniversary of
the society its silver jubilee.
There was a double celebration, as
it were, of the happy event. There
was a dance, in the early evening, In
the Burko building, and at midnight,
after several hours of music and pleas
ure in tho ball room, the guests re
paired to St. Rose hall, where the ban
quet table awaited the gathering.
The dance was a happy' forerunner
of the evening's pleasure, as the young
people who made up the assemblage
seemed to keenly enjoy the time spent
in following this diversion. Tho Mo
zart orchestra provided Its best music.
At tho banquet, which was served
by Mulholland, Mark Campbell was
toastmaster. The toasts and responses
were as follows: "Our Society," M. J.
Horan; "Our Ladles." Thomas Cou
ncil; "Our Country," David L. Walsh;
"Total Abstinence," P. F. Carroll.

An Ideal
A New Discovery Which Cures nil
Forms of Catarrh,
The tablet Is tho ideal form In which
to administer medicine, but until re
cently no successful catarrh tablet had
over been attempted. Thero Is now,
however, an excellent and palatable
remedy for catarrh In tablet form,
known as Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and
sold by druggists, composed ot tho
most recent discoveries In medicine for
cure of catarrh and results from their
use have been highly gratifying.
The old time treatment of catarrh
was In the form of inhalers, washes,
douches, sprays, etc. Later on Internal
remedies were used with greater bug
cogs, but being In liquid or powder
form were Inconvenient to use and like
all medicines In liquid or powder form,
lose their medicinal properties when
opened or exposed to the air.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets contain
highly concentrated antiseptics, Red
Gum, Blood Root, etc., which kill the
catarrh germs in the blood and mucous
membrane, and In this respect nro
strictly scientific and modern, becauso
all authorities are now agreed that
catarrh Is a constitutional blood dis
ease, and local applications can have
only a transitory effect.
Tho use of Inhalers, douches and
sprays Is a nuisance and Inconvenience
and can in no wise compare favorably
with tho same antiseptics given in tab
let form internally, where they can
reach tho stomach and blood and kill
catarrh germs right where they are
A prominent lawyer and public
speaker of Pittsburg says: "I have been
troubled with catarrh of the head nnd
throat for twelve years. In this cli
mate it seems Impossible to get rid of
It. The continual dropping of mucus
from the 11030 Into the throat caused
Irritation and hoarseness, seriously In
terfering with my public speaking. ItT
took me an hour or more of coughlngr
gagging, expectorating and sneezing
every morning before I could settle
down to work and this condition grad
ually brought on catarrh of stomach,
causing loss of appetite, poor digestion
and a foul breath, which annoyed me
exceedingly. My physician advised tho
to try Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and I
took them for two months and wa3
astonished to llnd how quickly they
cleared my head, throat and stomach
and I have no hesitation in' recommend
ing them. They are not only pleasant
to take, but they seem to get at tho
very root of the trouble, because since
using them I have had no trace of
Druggists sell Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets at 50 cents for full size package.
They can be carried in the pocket
and used any time as often as de-'
sired since they contain no cocaine,
mercury or any other injurious drug.

Heavy Travel to Florida and tho
The tide of travel which sets In every
winter lioin the northern stutes to
the milder climates of tho south and
southwestern portions of the country
has begun this year at a very much
Increased rate over that of any pre
vious season. Transportation compan
ies leport that their facilities aro com
pletely utilized, and that early appli
cation Is often necessary in order to
secure choice accoinmodatlons. Tho
Southern railway's new and palatial
train, the "Southern's Palm Limited,"
which began .its seivlco in the mlddlo
of January, between New ATork and
the more prominent resorts of tho
South, has proved a welcome and In
view of tho Increased travel a neces
sary addition to the means of Inter
communication between these two sec
tions. This train Is running heavily
loaded every day, every compartment
and stateroom being taken, and It bus
frequently been necessary to put on
additional sleeping cars In order to
accommodate the demand. Tho popu
larity of this train Is mainly duo to
tho prominence of the points which it
touches and tho quick tlino which It
makes between New York and Florida.
Another train operated by tho Southern
Railway system Is the AVnshlngton and
Southwestern Limited. Its close con
nection with tho "Sunset Limited" ol
the Southern Paclllo coinpany at New
Orleans to Mexico and the Paclllc
coast makes it a popular southern
route for winter travel. This system
otfers quick service to tho beautiful
"Land of the Sky," tho mountain reg.
Ion of North Carolina, within which
are located such famous resorts aa
Plnehurst, Ashevllle and Hot Springs,
also to Columbia, Summervllle, Aiken
and Augusta. These places nra easily
leached, and is one of the main iea
sons for the present gieat' inercaso ol
Southern travel. Tho travel to lu
still milder and more squthernly h
cated resorts In Floildti, St. Augiibtlne,
Palm Beach, Ormond, Tampa and oth
er places 011 both the Atluntlo and
Gulf coasts of the state seems to hi
equally heavy, The Southern Rullwaj
loute is also most popular anion
travelers to Cuba, since the quick thai
made between Kew York and Tunipa
and Miami, materially shortens the trlj
to Havana, Travel westward througl
the Gulf states to New Orleans an
the west is unusually heavy, and tin
npptouchtng Mnrdi Gras festivities it
Nw .Orleans are also attracting a con
slderable number of northern visiton
to that city. Complete information It
