Two weddings woro solemnized at SI.
Ttose church yesterday afternoon, and
though no public announcement pre
ceded either tho nuptials, there was
quite an assemblage of friends lo wit
ness the Impressively simple cere
monies that united each counle.
The principals were Miss Mary Scott,
of the AVest Side, and Richard Cole, of
Maylleld, and Mrs. Ellen Leslie and
Martin McDonald, both of the West

Miss Maggie 'Munley was the maid,
nnd William Cole was groomsman. Tho
bride was most becomingly gowned in
i tailor-made suit of dark blue, while
the inuld's appearance was enhanced
by a handsome suit of gray.
There was a reception at the bride's
home, on Scott street, which was at
tended by tho members of each family
nnd a few relatives. Mr. and Mrs. Cole
will begin housekeeping at once.
The bride Is a member of one of tho
oldest and most highly respected fam

were pioneers In Carbondale and were
of tho sturdy stock of which this city

with womanly virtues, and she has a

Tho Distinguished Confederate Gen
eral and Cultured Son of tho South
Fascinated a Large Audience With
His Descriptions, Ills Pathos nnd
As many of the residents of Carbon
dale as could bo seated In the Grand
last night enjoyed n rare evening with
Cleuurnl .John U. Gordon, of Georgia,
whoso tervlces in the cause In which he
t nought was right distinguished him a
brave soldier and an ofllcor of ntnk,
foice and tact.
The audience that listened lo this
distinguished son of tho South was
lusolnutrd with his Interesting manner
of describing the unpublished Incidents
of the war; it was charmed with his
personality; It was gladdened with his
wit and humor, and It wept with him
In sympathy when he pictured' the aw
ful struggles and sufferings of tho
heroic boys in blue nnd gray.
General Gordon's lecture, an earnest,
soul-thrilling talk, would bo better
with Its wealth of description and
pathos and humor, glowed with a pa
triotic fervor that warmed the hearts
of his hearers and made them forget
that the man who talked to them was
once their enemy In arms. What he
said did a good deal to rekindle the fire
of love of country within the hearts
of all present and it revealed General
Gordon to them as tho most loyal of
sons of the stars and stripes against
which he was once arrayed. His feel
ing which filled them overran when In
paying tribute to the "glorious boys,
tho sons of the men who woro tho blue
and the gray who marched in the same
line nnd mingled their shouts of vic
tory on tho Cuban heights at San
tiago," he said that his son and
all his grandsons were volunteers In
that war against Spain's opppresslon.
Then there was a spontaneous out
burst of applause that came from
every corner of tho piny house. Here
and there the most beautiful patriotic
sentiments burst forth fiom General
Gordon, which he expressed with a
burning fervor nnd thillling force that
struck a responsive chord and tilled
his hearers with a patriotic glow that
General Gordon's splendid appear
ancehe Is the typical fine old gentle
man of the South his splendid voice
and the reserve force that shows itself,
made him an Ideal speaker.
The title of his lecture, "The Last
Days of the Confederacy," begins with
the battle of Gettysburg and ends at
the v surrender of thu army of the
South at Appomattox court house. H
Is not dry dust historical facts tlpit ho
presents, but the most thrilling and the
most humorous Incidents that came
under his personal observation. Here
in lies the charm of his entertainment.
Tho audience was most enthusiastic
and gave to General Gordon the recep
tion that he deserved. The attendance
was tho largest for uny entertainment
in the Smith-Singer course.
General Gordon was introduced by
Joseph Alexander of W. H. Davis post,
G. A. It.
Indirectly Caused the Death of the
, World's Greatest General.
It Is n matter of hlBtory that Na
ipotcon was a gorinand, an Inordinate
lover of tho good things of tho table,
and history further records that his
favorite dish was fried onions; his
death from cancer of tho stomach It Is
claimed uh'o, was probably caused
from his excessive Indulgence of this
fondness for the odorous vegetable.
I- j t rj-iL.
The onion la undoubtedly a whole
some article- of food, In fact has many
medicinal finalities of value, but It
would be difficult to llnd a more Indi
gestible nrtlcle than fried onions, nnd
to many people they are simply poison,
but the onion does not stand alone In
this lospect. Any article of food that
Is not thoroughly digested becomes a
.source of (limine and discomfort
whether it be fried onions or beef
Tho reason why any wholesome food
Is not promptly digested Is because tho
stomach lacks some Important element
of dlgivilloH, some stomachs lack pep
tone, others arc deficient In gastric
June, still others lack hydrochloric
The one thing necessary to do In any
case of poor digestion Is t& supply
those o.lcuiputft of digestion Avhlch the
stomach :ao;s, and nothing does this
so thoroughly and safely as Stuart's
Dr. I.'Ichai'drun In writing a thesis oa
treatment of dyspepsia and indiges
tion, closes his remarks by saying, "for
those sufiering from ' acid dyspepsia,
shown by four, watery risings, or for
llatulent dyspepsia shown by gas on
stomach, causing heart trouble and dif
ficult breathing, as well as for all other
loruw of fctomnch trouble, the safest
tieatmeat Is to take one or two of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after each
meal. I aU Ise them because they con
tain no harnimi drugs, but are com
posed of valuable digestives, which act
promptly upon the food eaten. I never
knew a case of Indigestion or oven
cluonlc dyspepsia which Stuart's Tab
lets would rot reach."
Cheap cathartic medicines claiming
to cure dyspepsia and indigestion can
have no c-freet whatever in actively di
gesting the food, and to call any ca'-
uiartie medicine a cure for indigestioa
Is a misnomer,
Every drugg'st in the United States
and Canada sells Stuart's Dvspcpsla
Tablets, ami they are not only the
tnrest nnd most successful, but tho
most scientific or any treatment for in
digestion and stomach troubles.

Constable Moran's Struggle With
Milliner Joseph Waldnmn.
For some time past Joseph D. Wald
mun has conducted a millinery store
in the Tucker and Maxey building on
North Church street. Of late business
has not been brisk and the proprietor
decided to go to Plttston in the hope
that ho would bo better appreciated
there. In his haste to leave this city
ho overlooked a bill for one hundred
dollars ho had contracted with a physi
cian of the town. The latter placed the
matter In the hands of Constable Mo
ran and Monday afternoon the olllccr
caught the accused while the latter was
boaidlag a train at the Seventh ave
nue station. Waldmnu resisted arrest
and taking Moran by surprise struck
him with such foice that Moran's
thumb was knocked out of Joint. Mo
ran then used his own muscular force
to advantage and tho prisoner yielded
to his demand to go before Alderman
Atkinson. At the plant oi A, Tiffany
Moran went In the office to telephone
for tho ' prosecuting physician and
Waldmnn's attornoy, II, C. Horton, the
prisoner made a dash for liberty but
Moran had him before he could escape.
Heforo tho alderman tho caso wan
settled by Waldmau giving a note to
tho physician. Moran was In favor of
having him arrested for resisting ar
rest but Waldnlan upollglaed and the
olllccr allowed him to go.

In sneaking of "The Fust Mall," tho
Toledo Times of August 13 says: "Tho
formal opening of the season In Hurt's
theatre wus most propitious. Though
the weather was certainly not such as
to drive people Indoors for amusement,
the house was tilled upstairs and down.
It was like a Sunday night In the win
tor season, when it Is really necessary
to 'como early to avoid the rush.' Per
haps the bill had something to do with
the attendance, 'The Fast Mull' seems
never to lose Its popularity. Tho scenic
and mechanical effects never pall: tho
steamboat explosion tin Ills, and tho ex
press train satlslles with unfailing cer
tainty. This time, iu addition to the
Stage effects, there are a number of
clever people in the cast, who thor
oughly pleused the amlleuco by their
good acting and numerous specialties."

Wlion tho Prm-Amcrican Exposition

of tho prist, nnd tho memory of its beauties bo blur
red and indistinct, ono fonturo of it will stand out against
that darkening background of tho past iu unquenchable bril
lianco, and that ono f eaturo' is tho Elootr'to Tower. That beau
tiful tower as tho central feature of tho splendid electrical
effects marks tho highest point of electrical achievement in
illumination It has been frequently remarked that IJuffnlo
is the only city whero theso clcctrio wonders could havo been
accomplished," because Buffalo is the only city which had tho -availablopoiocr
to producosuch an effect. Behind the splen
dor of the Electric City is tho power of Niagara and tho
human knowledgo mado into power by its practical applica
tion to tho problems of this vast schema of elect ricnl illum
ination. Thero is another kind of power with which Buffalo is
identified. Tho powor-houso stands at 003 Slain Street, and,
invisible as tho clcctrio current and oven moire wonderful and
far-reaching, the power generated in this power-house is being
distributed throughout the whole country. It is a wonderful
thing to light tho brilliant lamps of tho Electric Tower. It
is still moro wonderful to light the dulled and dimmed eyes
of sick women. And that is what is being done by this
power generated at 003 Main Street, Buffalo, and known to
women tho land over as Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
It is n power to heal, nnd has accomplished marvels in makinr
weak women stronir nnd sick women well. It has been said -
that, "lcnowlnflrrn is nowor." and ko if. is wlinn ih, iMimirlnrlf-n "iKST"

of study and- experience. Why can't they have such an electrical exhibit any
where eke as was shown at tho Pan-American ? Because they haven't tho power
anywhere else. Why do not other medicines for women work the same cures as
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription ' Because other medicines havo not the samo
power to cure. That is the reason why "Favorite Prescription" cures when other
medicines fail, and even when doctors say a cure is impossible.
me. At the time I commenced your medicines 1 was as helpless B3 a babe ; I could not get
out of bed. My husband eared for me as a child, and from the time I began your medicines
I improved, and was soon up and able to do my housework. Kverybody said I could not get
well. The doctors said they could not help nic, and to-day I am, well and strong, nnd your
medicines did it. I could have lived but a short time ; your medicines

But there must be skill as well as knowledge behind power.
It is ono thine to harness Niagara. It is another thincr alto
gether to control it when harnessed. It 13 one thing to treat
disease. It is another tiling to cure it. There tho skill comes
into play in the success of Dr. Piercj and his medicines. Any
fanner's wife has the knowledge of butter-making. But every
farmer's wife can't make good butter. Why is" it that Mrs.
Brown's butter sells for a better price than her neighbor's, and
always takcs.thc premium for quality at the county fair? Mrs.
Brown's cows gives no choicer milk. Mrs. Brown's churn has
no advantage over any other churn. And Sirs. Smith says to
her friend, " I wonder what Mrs. Brown puts into her butler
to ninko it so rjood ? " What does she put into her butter?
It's skill. The ability to clo what others do iu a superior
and more successful manner than they.
There's just one' element entering into the successful
cures of Dr. Pierce that no one can imitate or duplicate,
and that is skill. You can't counterfeit that any more than
the cures which reMtll from the skilfully prepared medicines
