FOR NEW BOWLING ALLEY
proprietor Williams of the American
House Considering a Proposal to
It Is likely thai Carbondale will have
(mother bowling alley, one of the latest
iind most approved stylo. A proposition
to install one has been made to Pro
prietor Williams, of the American
house, iind ho Is considering It. A
surprising ljUmber of queries as to a
bowling alley have been made to Mr.
"Williams. Scarcely a day passes that
one or more drummers who are ut the
hotel over night do not ask If they can
bowl a game or two and express sur
prise when informed that the hotel
lacks one. It was this that led .Mr.
Williams to entertain a proposal for the
erection of one. representatives of the
firm, which leads In the manufacture
of bowling alleys, -were in the city this
week wlth.lnduoements for Mr. Wil
liams to place one In his hotel. Mr.
Williams leans to the proposition and It
is probable that he will act on It. This
however, cannot be said with au
thority, for he has not made no posi
The erection of this alley, now that
there already is one here, and being
so publicly and desirably located,
would give a decided impetus to the
sportot bowling ami In tlino make it
relatively as popular as in Scranton.
There is no question as to the Interest
that could be worked up among the
enthusiasts and It .would be only a
short lime one could safely venture to
say until Carbondale could send play
ers to Scranton that Would hold their
own with the cracks of that town, car
, bondale has a great reputation for
superiority in athletics and sports, and
it is a sure bet that her sturdy lads
would not have to go away back and
nit down for any bowlers, even though
they might come from Scranlon or
even Ilonesdale, where live the mighty
.(?) in all things.
The enthusiasts of Scranton would
be sure to co-operate In the efforts
to popularize a sport so healthful and
beneficial as bowling, and so free of
abuses and mentally stimulating be
cause of the skill and spirit of contest.
In fact a few of the foremost bowlers
in Scranton are concerned in the effort
to establish-the alley at the American
house. They are desirous of broaden
ing the neld of competition.
Obsequies in Mayfleld of a Man Well
Known in Carbondale.
The respect and esteem In which the
late Peter McCarthy was held by his
fellow citizens of Mayfleld were strik
ingly shown by the large crowd which
followed the deceased to his last rest
ing place yesterday. The cortege moved
from the lute home of .deceased on
Popular street at 0:30 o'clock and was
one of the largest ever attended In
the borough. At the Sacred Heart
church ii requiem mass was sung by
Rev. Jeremiah Dunn, the pastor. At
the conclusion of the mass he delivered
an eloquent sermon und during It he
eulogized the deceased . In glowing
terms. He also extended his slncercst
sympathy to the family. The A. O. II.
and the firemen marched in the funeral
procession. The floral pieces presented
by those two societies and the Bakers'
union of this city were beautiful and
spoke the love in which their late
brother was held by them. The de
ceased was laid at rest In Calvary
cemetery. A number from this city

The constituents of Select Council
man Thomas Battle on the West Side
are favorably commenting on his
thoughtfulness in looking after the In
terests In the light ordinance now in
process of councils.
In the ordinance he has made pro
vision for three lights for which there
has been a crying necessity. Their lo
cations are on Scott street, in front
of tho property of Anthony Horan; on
.South Hospital street, near James,
Collins' property, and on Scott street
ne.tr James Crane's property. The first
named location Is just this side of
what has been known for years as the
deep cut. The spot is dark on the
brightest night, by reason of tho topo
graph of Upland, and on cloudy nights
the inky darkness that you read about
covers the roadway. Aside from this
aspect, dark as pitch If you will, It is
an unviting place for crime; not that
any evil has ever taken place there,
but it .is just such. a spot that, .would
appeal to a highwayman.
The location on South Hospital street,
near the Collins' property, Is another
one of those spots thai fill- you with
giouiuy aim leunui inougius. ii is on
mi elevation that places it beyond the
rays of the distant arc lights ami as
there Is an irregular lane there that i:
illled with water about half the year,
a light will be a blessing. Tho hist
mimed place has never seen the rays of
artificial light at 'night and the advent
of an incandescent lamp will receive a
The councllinen who made provisions
for other lights are to bo likewise com
mended. The result is that there are
not more arc lights in the outlying
districts where travel is more hazard
ous. There is nu city in the land that
Is too well lighted, and where street
lighting Is carried 'out with judgment
It is a priceless blessing. On the other
hand where there is a thoughtless re
trenchment of expenses In this direc
tion It is sure to bo found to be false
economy. Councils, therefore, It would
seem should not only be willing to con
cede lights, where there Is good judg
ment in their distribution, but should

The coming of General John li. Gor
don, who will lecture here at the Grand
on Tuesday night on "Tho Last Days
of the Confederacy," ought to be made
quite an event. The personality of the
man and the historical Interest sur
rounding his career warrant and even
call for this. '
General Gordon was one of the most
conspicuous figures in the Confederate
army. In the course that he behoved
was right, he was unillnchlng, a brave
soldier and a superior olllcer. Tho
spirit and bravery und fearlessness
runs through his whole career. In
the earlier days, In the Mexican war,
General Gordon was a true patriot and
In the battles of that contest his fidelity
as a citizen, his lovo for the Hag and
his valor as a soldier were well known.
To him tho country owes tho debt
that she does to her true sons und
nothing would bo jnoro llttlug than to
give him a hejuty greeting on his com
ing to Carbondale. t'his Is not said
with a view to benefitting the promo
ters of the entertainment course, under
wnose auspices ho appears, for tho
patronage of tho night Is already as
sured, but it is to declare for the recog
nition that General Gordon deserves
und which Is likely to be lost sight of
in thu hurry and rush of these days.
It would be a gracious compliment to
General Gordon to be honored with
such a reception and It would be
another step to bring closer together
tho people of the north and south," who
were never closer than they are to
day. The Grand Army men of the
town are manifesting a proper Interest
in his coming, and It Is hoped Hint they
will be present In force on Tuesday
evening to hall the brave son or the
south. Tho effort to bring the school
children out to hear General Gordon is
highly commendable und It will be u
means of fostering a blessed spirit
General Gordon Is an educated and
cultured gentleman and his lecture,
aside from his personality, will bo
worth the visit to hear him.

I could breathe with ease. In a week or so I felt so goo'd I, could
not stay in the room. I began to walk about the streets ; I felt better
each morning. After a. month's use of the medicine I was well. That
was over a year ago. Now I weigh 184 pounds and feel better than
ever in my life."
"I was afflicted for several years with a comnlicatiou of diseases:
neuralgia of stomach, rheumatism and kidney trouble," writes Mrs.
Luella Garlinghouse, of Galena, Delaware Co., O. "After doctoring with five of the best
physicians of our town for two or three years without receiving any particular benefit, I
decided to write to Dr. R. V. Pierce and give him a brief description of mv case. You
kindly answered my letter immediately, recommending a persistent and systematic
course of treatment with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. Also requesting that
I follow the hygienic advice which vou enclosed, and which I did with the following
results: When I wrote lo Dr. Pierce I had been sick for several years with rheumatism,
but for the last year other diseases set in. I had neuralgia of stomach, also a pain in my
heel and ankle (they were swelled during the day), and paiu at the very end of the spine, so I could
hardly sit down at all. My throat was very sore every night- for three months, and my stomach
was so sore I couldn't bear the weight of my clothes. Strange to say I had an euormous'appetite,
but everything I ate gave me that pain in the stomach. In fact, I was so discouraged I never
expected to get well, but after consulting Dr. Pierce I felt some hopes of recovery. After
taking thirteen bottles of 'Goldeu Medical Discovery,' two of 'Favorite Prescription and three
vials of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets I felt entirely well."
Every farmer and dairyman knows that it is of the first importance that the vessels
into which the fresh milk is put shall be absolutely clean. The slightest taint in tho
vessel will taint all tho milk that is put into it. It is very much the same way with
the stomach. If the stomach is diseased it must injuriously affect the food put into
the stomach. And as the blood is made from digested food, the blood also must suf
fer contamination from the diseased stomach. Then because blood is tho life of the
body and feeds every organ of the body, whatever affects the healthy quality of the
blood must affect the organs which feed on the blood, and, therefore, affect the whole
body, the life and sustenance of which is tho blood made from food. These facts con
nect the diseased stomach with every organ and tissue of the body, and partly explain
why Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery which cures diseases of the' stomach and
other organs of digestion and nutrition, also jmrifies tho blood and cures through the
stomach diseases of organs seeming remote from tho stomach, but yet so linked lo it
and dependent on it that they cannot have sound health so long as the stomach and
digestive and nutritive system arc diseased.
Instead of trying Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery as a last resort, try it first
of all. Its use offers tho greatest possibility of cure. It always helps. It almost
Sick people, arc invited to consult Dr. Pierce by letter free. All correspond enco
strictly confidential. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, K.' Y.
Accept no substitute for " Golden Medical Discovery." There is nothing "just as
good" for diseases of the stomach and blood.

Heavy Travel to Florida and the
The tide of travel which sets in every
winter from the northern suites to
tho milder climates ot the south and
southwestern portions of the country
has -.begun this year at a very much
lucreused rate over that of any pre
vious season. Transportation compan
ies report that their facilities ure com
pletely utilized, and that eurly appli
cation Is often necessary In order to
secure choice accommodations. The
Southern railway's new and palatial
train, the "Southern's Palm Limited,"
which began Its service In tho middle
of Junuury, between New York ana
tho more prominent resorts ot the
South, has proved a welcome and In
view of the 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 has
frequently been necessary to put on
additional sleeping cars in order to
ncconunodato tho demand, Tho popu
larity of this train Is mainly due to
tho prominence of tho points which it
touched and tho quick time which It
makes between New York nnd Florida.
Another train operated by tho Southern
Railway system Is the Washington und
Southwestern Limited, Its .close con
nection with the "Sunset Limited" of
the Southern Puclflc company nt New
Orleans to Mexico and the Pacific
coast makes It a popular southern
route for winter travel. This system
offers quick service to tho beautiful
"Land of tho Sky." tho mountain reg
ion of North Carolina, within which
aro located such famous resorts a"ft,
Plnehurst, Ashcvillo and Hot Springs,
also to Columbia, SummervlIIo, Alkon
nnd Augusta. Theso places are easily
reached, and Is one of tho main rea
sons for tho present great Increase of
Southern travel. Tho travel to the
still milder and more southernly lo
cated resorts In Florida, St. Augustine,
Palm Reach, Orniond, Tampa and oth
er places on both tho Atlantic und
Gulf coasts of tho state seems to be
equally heavy. Tho Southern Railway
youto is also most popular among
travelers to Cuba, since tho quick time
made between New York und Tampa
und Miami, materially shortens the trip
to Havana. Travel westward through
the Gulf states to New Orleans and
the west Is unusually heavy, and the
approaching Murtll Urus festivities In
New Orleans are ulso attracting a con
siderable number of northern visitors
to that city. Complete Information In
regard to reaching all of the ubove
resorts tun bo procured of Chute. L.
