EvcryStree, Avenue -and Comt In
iho City Has Been Named by tlio
City Engineer Council Committed
o Tako Action on Monday Night.
llyi-lhRliiepr Kupp has completed a
Igply 'Important tusk, the mtinhiir of
very nventie, street and court hi Iho
t'lty thnt has heretofore been without
n name, or which belonged to n Broup
of streets that tmruded under the one
unfile. For example, Scott stiret, on
tinj Vest Side, which was accepted to
mejtn "almost any and every street In
that aeotton of the city.
'The completion of thin work Is com
nirtidublc for several reasons, but the
most lmn'orjunt In that It Is u compli
ance wltli tlio, wishes of the postal tlc-pattment-nhd
gives (!url)iiiidale the
right ntiri authority to uslt for what
mall service It needs. Postmaster
Tbomrts tried tills repeatedly, but was
balked by reason of their being no In
telligent system of streets. Now there
Is one, .or there will be one, when the
street committee of councils: net on the
scheme or draft prepared by the city
This" system of street also compre
hends the numbering of houses. This
feature, however, bus not been fully
disposed of by Mr. Kupp, but It will
be jlnkcii cnio of at the committee
meeting. At' this meeting, also,- tli
bids for street signs will be opened and
probably disposed of. .The total num
ber of signs needed Is 430. There luiv
been a half dossen, bidders. Among
them Is one who'lias an aluminum sign
which, besides lieliipf attractive, Is the
serviceable, Ju would-be a splendid
sign If councils would deem It worth
the while to expend the additional sum
which It requires over the other .signs.
The New Streets. . i
In giving the newly-named slieets, It
Would be dinieult to describe their pre
cise locntlon, by reason of the fact
that many of them are situated In a
sort of cob-web district. TIip central
point, however, is given and If It will
be remembered that the street or court
has been named after the biggest property-holder
living thereon, those fa
miliar Willi the several parts of the
city will recognize their location.

leading off from South Main street have
been clulstened In the order of ascend
ing tlio bill, as follows: J.imny court,

court, C'onnell avenue, Pldgeon stieet.
The stieet running along iho hill
fiom (lie Ontario and Western railroad

Hlff street, which is most fitting, as
It runs along a cliff.
In the Italian colony and about llu-
hospital, the un-nnmed streets have
been christened Villa street, because of
the numerous small cottages thereon:
Cuff avenue, llealey street, Judge
court. Leading off Fall Brook street
are Schlinmel avenue, Pine street,

.Owing to sentiment being divided as
to the proposed change of Salem ave
nue to McKlitley avenue, the city en
ttlneer will leave It to the committee to
FRED SHERIDAN'S RIDE.
Tlio Experonce of the Belated Stage
Driver from Clifford Cleverly Told
In Verse by Col. John McComb.
"Hlierldan's Hide," not the ride of tlio
Immortal General Phil Sheridan, who
made the historic: dash up the valley
of the Shenandoah, but the ride, Tiles
day Inst, of Fred Sheridan, the driver
of the Clifford stage, has been related
In verse by Colonel John McComb In
his usually clever style of rhyming.
The Incident took place on Tuesday
of this week when, for the llrst time
lu live years, the stage from over
Crystal hike way failed to make Its
dally tiip to the city. It was not the
fault of the driver, Fred Sheridan, but
of the storm king, who made mountain'?
out of the hlghwnys and byways of this
part of the country. Sheridan showed
n true heroic spirit in making for tilts
city, and the Incident so Impressed
Colonel McComb that he straightway
proceeded to his pen, and In an bout's
time he dashed off the verses that fol
low. The experience of Sheridan Is
cleverly 1 elated. His courage and
pluck aie dtdy credited, while the hu
mor of the happening is happily
Drought out. Here and theie the poet
ic genius asserts Itself, completing a
cleverly twined tale:

Project Being Canvassed Among tho
Influential Men of Caibondnlo.
The project of a Young Men's Chris
tian association for Citrbondale Is be
ing canvussed In this city mining men
who are conspicuous lu the church
work of tlio town. The project hns met
with the best kind of outortaltuuent
and If the Interest continues to develop
as Is expected, the establishment of a
branch of the association lu this city
seems a certainty.
The advantages of this great means
of development of moral, Intellectual
and physical woith are too well ap
preciated to call for any attention In
The 'great factor that the A'. M. P.
A, has been, and Is, In every com
munity where Its Influence has been d
veloped Is so evident that It would seem
like being hackwaid to make any morn
than passing leference to the value of
a branch of the association lu Carbon
dale's midst. It would seem to be only
u matter of broadening Interest in the
pioject, particularly among the young
men of the town. Tlio persons who
have Inlet ested themselves In provid
ing a home heie for the association are
men to whom the success of such u
project can be confided. The co-operation
or the young men of the town Is
a necessary factor and a working up
of Interest among them Is looked for.
Some correspondence has been had with
JO. Jt. Bueknlcw, of Ilarrisbmg, state
secretary of the Y. M. C. A., and he :s
expected to visit this city in about a
week to confer with those who have
taken up the project. In the mean

A SUDDEN THAW
The Mountains of Snow in nnd
About Carbondnle Sure to Cause
Daninge nnd Disaster if a Heavy
Kniu Comes Precautions Urged by
City Engineer Kupp.
The apprehension of City Knglneer
Kupp over the setting In of a sudden
thaw was greatly Increased last even
ing when the heavy snow fall of the
day was succeeded by a downpour of
sleet mingled with ruin.
The heaps of snow that cover Car
boudale's stieets give substantial rea
son for the fears that have been fell
ever since the heavy snows, The
slrcnins that huve become frozen and
choked up add to the gravity of the
situation. Tho quantity of snow now
In Carbondnle has not been equalled In
years. Willie the central city streets
are not so bad, on the outskirts there
are drifts a foot and a half high. Th
snow, too, Is packed so solidly that u
pick would be necessary to break It up.
Should a rain continue for any length,
the sewers would not only be unable
to accoiumodnte the water, but there
would be no outlet from the streets
save the sidewalks, as the gutters are
a fool deep In fiozen snow. The mis
chief of the water can easily be Im
agined. As the Lackawanna river Is almost
frozen over, here Is another ilang"!'.
The stream could not ucconiniodato the
discharge of water Into Its bed, and
the lee In breaking up would be liable
to causo more damage. The Urooklyu
creek Is another source of worry, for In
the event of a Midden thaw, there's no
telling what mischief would follow.
The most recent source of worry Js
the Racket brook, which overflowed a
few days ago. the water entering the
property of Frank Smith at lirool?
street. The bed of the Inook Is choked
with frozen culm from a washery locat
ed along Its banks, and the water can
hardly work Its way down to the river.
To lellevo matters, a force of men,
under the dliectlon of the Delawure
and Hudson company, cut a narrow
channel along the stream In the vicin
ity of new No. I bridge. This nie-u-ure,
however. Is merely palliative, and
the city olllclals cast fearful looks nt
the hticain as they consider the pros,
iect of continued rain.
A dunger of the situation, to which
City engineer Kupp urges attention Is
the blocking of the glitters with snow
and Ice. Last night he asked The
Tribune to remind property owners
that It Is (heir duty to keep their gut
ters., dear of obstructions. In the case
of u hurtled melting of snow, with the
gutters blocked, the disaster of a flood
cun be easily pictured. The responsi
bility und liability for possible danir
ages rests in a case of this kind on the
property. For this reason, If only n
selfish one, It behooves property owners
to eleuu their gutters.
Another Big Hit.
"Tiie lSoliemlun Cilrl," Haifa's Immor
tal opeia In three acts nnd four scenes,
sung by the Columbia Opera company,
scored a great hit last evening. The
play was one that every attendant en
joyed and one In which they were en
thused with. Tho solo and duet work
was most excellent and encores were
demanded from several of the singers.
Miss Oilman again scored a big lilt,
nnd it seemed as If the crowd could not
hear enough of her singing. Franklin
Fox was also well received and the
work of Holme and Amsden was en
joyed as usual. Tills afternoon, "Paul
.Tones" will he sung, and tonight, "La
Mascotte," the latter being conceded
to be the funniest opera of the week.
Two large audiences should greet this
most excellent company today. It has
been a great week for theater-goers
and It Is their wish that the Columbia
company will place this city on their
route for an annual visit.

II INSIDE HISTORY
OF A REMARKABLE CASE HOW PUB
LISHED FOR THE FIRST TIME.
Mr. NlcliaU fttnkej Statement, Telling ta
the Dest of Her Knowledge the Cniisci
Which Led to the Trouble.
The following facts, snys tho Belfast,
Me., Republican Journal, have never
before been published. The Incident
caused much comment nt tho lime and
it wns thought worth while to make on
Investigation. With this end In view, a
reporter called upon Mrs. Kllsabelh
Nichols nt her home In Henrsport, Me.,
and obtained the following Information.
"About six years ago my nerVes broke
down completely and my whole system
became n wreck. I suffered dreadfully
from Indigestion and my eyes were
very weak. I had frceiuent fainting
spells. Finally my sight failed mo en
tirely and I had to have my eyes ban
daged all the time."
"This state of affairs," she continue),
"lasted for a year, when I was forced to
go to bed and stay there constantly. I
became so weak that T could tako only
two tenspoonfuls of milk at a time. I
could not feed myself nnd sleep was al
most Impossible. This lasted another
year and I was then In such n state of
nervous exhaustion that when my peo
ple wanted to make my bed they could
move ine only a few Inches nt a time. I
had become extermely thin and was
still losing flesh. I had tried nearly all
the medicines In the mnrket, but failed
to find any Unit helped me."
"Hut how were you cured?" asked
"I'll tell you. My condition finally
became so critical that my family ex
pected me to die any day. Then my
husband bought some Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People, and three
das after I began taking them I could
eat without assistance, and In a week I
could sit up and be dressed. After I
had taken five boxes I began to gain
llesli. I continued the use of Pink Pills
for Pule People until I had taken ten
boxes and wus able to help my family
pack up and move to a new home. After
reaching theie I took two more boxes
of the pills and 1 have been able to
work hard and lake care of my family
of live people ever since,
"It Is now four years since I stopped
taking medicine and If I ever have to
take any more It will be Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People. Thiee of my
neighbors have taken the pills with
good results and I positively consider
them the best lemedy there Is."
The above statement was sworn to by
Mrs. Nicholas at the reporter's reque.it
before Charles F. Adams, a notary
public, at Seursport.
Not only have many cases similar to
this been cured by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People but equally won
derful results have been accomplished
by them In a large number of diseases
arising from thin blood or shattered
nerves, two fruitful causes of almost
every ill to which flesh Is heir. They
are a positive cure for such diseases as
locomotor atnxia, partial paralysis, St.
Vitus' dance, sciatica, neurnllgia, rheu
matism, nervous headache, the after
effects of grip, of fevers and of other
acute diseases, palpitation of tho heart,
pale and sallow complexions and all
forms of weakness either In male or
female. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People are also a specific for
tumbles peculiar to females. In men
they eflect a radical cure in all cases
arising from worry, 'over-work or ex
cesses of whatever nature. Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills for Pale People aie
sold In boxes (never In loose bulk) at
llfty cents u box or six boxes for two
dollars and fifty cents, and may be bad
of nil druggists, or direct by mall rrom
Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, Sche
nectady, N. Y. Be sure to f,et the gen
uine; substitutes never cured anybody.
