"Billy" Furnwald, the deft ami genial larber. who is never without a good Jtory.whlch would even make our 13ns Ish cousin laugh, tells a good one cm himself. One day this week, a man, after be ing shaved, asked for a facial massage. The preliminary move was the applica tion of a hot towel, but there must have been too much hot stuff in it, for when "Billy" gently laid the cloth on the face of the customer, the man gave a jump like a Dickson City councilman Arriving; at a conclusion. "Hilly" was horrified to see his patron's eye roll down over his body and fall on tho floor. "When it struck there was a crash like a striking parlor match, and the eye was fh a. hundred pieces on the barber shop lloor. "Billy" bought the cigars, and tho next day he bought a new glass eve for his friend. This Is a. story about a man in a barber shop, who came over the Afoosle mountain from Ilonesdnle. After tho Carbondale barber shaved him, he stood beside the chair with an iinsnlls lied look on his mild face. "Something, else'.'" asked the barber, who in his confusion gave the next customer a mouthful of lather.'1 "Well, I don't mean to bother you," was ids apology, "but if you've got a trading stumphandy, I'd take just one for that shave." Those who heard General Gordon'? lecture Tuesday night, will appreciate this story, which is a true one, since 11 came from a newspaper writer of the town. The pair were discussing General Gordon's qualities as a speaker. "t heard him once and enjoyed him ever so much," said the one, "but he didn't have a good voice, it seemed to me." "That's where you're off," said th newspaper man. "General Gordon's voice was the most conspicuous of hit finalities." "Well, by gosh," persisted the other, "the man I heard had a poor voice." "Oh, pshaw!" said the newsnmirr COFFEE MORS IT. Factt Not CJencrally Uelleveil. It is curious to watch a coffee toper and observe how he or she will resist all .suggestions as to coffee being the cause of their various ailment's. They will charge thu coaled tongue and bilious condition to something they have eaten, likewise the wretched con dition of tho bowels and the palpitation of tho heart. Tho sallow complexion is generally attributed to a "naturally bil ious" temperament. But once In a while a person wakes up and throws olf coffee entirely, then the truth begins to annear. ami if iu easy job to make this chaugo if Postum, Food Coffee is taken in place of coffee A man in West Plains, AIo., writes' .... w..v .mi 4IUIUI grow on nio my hcalthliivllupiljii the same ratio, 1 V&K HUiacctJln)ierVfllisnes3, coustlua AJ8UJ UWPejiSuOuid a .general weal; Tceirng-whlch made me unlit for busi ness, and finally I became so nervous and1 thoroughly broken down that I could not attend to business and turned .verytJljijr.o,vtV ,lj my a'sslstaut and iivonUttOhc' mountains In Colorado hoping to find health in a change of climate, but after six months sojourn T enme back Jn worse condition than 1 left.

"Policeman Jack," the dog with the funny tall and interesting ways, llko William Toll and his native crags and peaks. Is with us once more. ".lack", has changed his ways and Is showing tl'ioi'o who took nn Interest In him thnl like the leading lady In tho show who also sings and dances be tween the acts, ho Is qitllo versatile. .Inch earned the soubriquet of "Police man Jack" by following the policemen of the town, night after night, last summer, not only refusing to go with hla owner, or even be coaxed away, but not deigning a recognition of any 0110 save his favorite policemen, which was ofienesl Patrolman James Bell. In tho fall, Jack showed tho first streak of versatility by running off to Muyllekl yard, where he lived among the rail road men there. Sharing their fun, but oftener their suppers nnd dinners. "Jack" tired of tho noise of escaping steam, clanging bells and tooting whistles and last Sunday he cftine back to town ns quietly as he left three or four months ago. Ho 1ms shaken the police, however, and has given further evidences of his second love, tho rail load men, by making his night quar ters at the oily station of tho Dela ware and Hudson. ICvury night this week "Jack" could be seen In cither the baggage room or tho waiting room. Ills life, however, Is not a pleasant one, as he Is buffeted about' by speeding passengers and as he is suffering from rheumatic gout caused by the pic crust and such like that the newspaper men and others used to feed him nights in the restaurants last summer when he was "Policeman Jack" he is In f-oro distress. Ho still has his funny abre vlatcd tail and lie still does a sort of caku walk with it when you tell him what a good dog he really Is. A commendable effort Is being made to have a late mail out of Carbondale to New York city. Landlord Williams, of the American house, has laid the matter before the postoHlco people who have promised to present the request anil the necessity for the same to the proper o(llcIal.s and to press the matter with as much vigor as will be tolerated. There are numerous good reasons why there should bo facilities for send ing mail to Xcw York city by way of the train leaving here at 10:01 each night. Under the present arrangement, mall for eastern points must be In the postofllce before S:20 the latest, it it would go out the same night. Any mall dropped after that hour lays In the poalofllco until the next morning. Here Is a delay of about 12 hours, an item of some consequence to the business men and traveling man In these days of competition and despatcli In thq business life. Drummers who mall their orders to their llrms In the big cities, suffer most from the absence of a late mall. After their day's canvas, It is usually Impossible to have their mall in the postofllce by S:.'J0 or there abouts. Then when they discover theio is no late mail, there Is usually a sul phurous time. The drummer is not the only one who suffers; the hotel keeper keeps him company. When the traveling man learns that his mail cannot leave for Xew York city or Philadelphia, lie picks up ids grip a nil goes to Scranton for the sole purpose of mailing his letter. Beside being a loss to the hotels of the town, it also gives the impression that the town Is some what slow, and for this reason, alone, there should be an arrangement where by mall could be cared for on the 10:01 train. The freezing weather caused faithful Park Keeper Xliehard Udy to feel like making some explosive remarks yester day. Tho reason was that ho was un able to hoist the llag- on the polo in the park yesterday, la observance of Lin coln's birthday. Faithful Uichurd, as Is characteristic of him, was on hand early in the morning with the big Amerlcun llag that swings In the breeze on every occasion that calls for its presence; but when ho tried to raise It ho found that the rope was lrozen and would not go through tho pulley at tho top of the staff. Mr. Udy yanked and pulled and jerked, but with no success; ho could ralso the llag no higher than a few foot. Then when he tried to lower the flag he discovered that the rope stuck like the men who are often ti candidate just before elec tion. It was just high enough, too, to require a ladder to reach It. Thin was llnully done, but not until there was a deal of energy wasted in fretting and fussing and In expressions of dlsap jiolnt, for Jlr. Udy takes tho highest pride In seeing to It thut Memorial park contributes everything In tho lire of the city that is looked for from It, PATRIARCHS MILITANT.

J To looms largo .against tho stormy background of tho past, tho highest typo of tho citizen and patriot. Hut when wo con sider him as an agriculturist, a crop raiser and fit tho old timo Hail again into his hantiB, wo can hardly forbear a smile at tho quaint picture. What giant strides of progress: mark tho distance between tho slow (hud of the flail and tho impatient whirr of thu groat threshing machines which handle tho vast wheat crops of the great North-West. If wo want to measure our progress there is no better starting jioint than that far oil farmer with his Hail, and yot some profes sions which should show the greatest pro gress snow 1110 least, this 19 notably true in tho practice of medicine, and it is true because of tho attempt of the profession at largo to preserve tho peculiar idea of dignity which is tradi tionally associated with tho practice of medicine. According to tho ethics of tho profession it is undignified to advertise. You may have a specific for some special disease, hut vott can't pub lish the fact to tho public at largo without a loss of standing 'in the profession. It was just this condition which confronted Dr. It. V. Pierce, when, as tho result of his practice and medical studies, he combined the ingredients which enter into "Golden Medical Discovery," and proved tho power of tho medicine to cure. JJr. Pierce knew, what all physicians know, that when uiBu.iou uil.u:k.s a person 1110 stomach is tno lir.st orrran undor sits picion, because in tho .stomach and its allied organs is prcnaret tho food by which man lives, and which in tlm form ,,f M,1 i the life of the body. If tho food is not fully digested and assimilated, the body is not fullv nourished. Tim rpsnlf. nf this. , lack of nourishment is weakness, which tnav bn general or may specially manifest itself in heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, etc. Dr. Pierce argued that if many 'diseases of the body and its organs had their origin in tho diseased condition of the stomach, then the medicine which would cure disease of tho stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition would also cure the many diseases which originate in stomach disease. Then lie compounded his "Golden Medical Discovery" and proved tho truth of his theory by numerous cures of diseases of tho stomach, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, etc. But at this point there came another thouc-ht. " Whv nnk devote the whole of my timo and ertergy to tho onre of this special class of diseases i Lut how I I here was only one way to reach tho people and that was by advertising, ilus was contrary to professional oliniietle, but Dr. Pierco behoving that tho greatest good to the greatest number must be tho rule of con duct, put the question of etiquette aside and told the people what he knew his Golden Medical Discovery" would do. Ever ainco then tho people have been' telling Dr. Pierce what " Golden Medical Discovery " has done in offcetinir thou sands upon thousands of cures. . mi.v.iias. iunwicK, ot wnox, Macomb Co., Mich., writes: "I have never felt better in ..... ... ....... , ii: uiK.cu ijr. rierce-s uoiuen Medical Discovery right alone.
