A Couple of Good Ones from the Bar
ber Shops of the Town General
Gordon's Lecture.
"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
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

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

"That's where you're off," said th
newspaper man. "General Gordon's
voice was the most conspicuous of hit
"Well, by gosh," persisted the other,

"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,

,Tho farmer of 'V(5 .1 sploiitUtl historical
figure. 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 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

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. .
