CASE LII1B SMALL POX
Buit Hull Stricken nt the Home of
Lewis Cliff The House Quaran
tined Until an Examination Can Be
Made Today by Several Physicians.
A case that has nitiny of the symp
toms of small-pox is under uurnutlne
in the village at' Wajntart.
The patient Is Hurl J lull, a young
man who wan stricken about u week
ago, and who has continued to develop
symptoms that have caused the phy
sicians to be concerned as to It being
a case of small-po.v. The sufferer is at
the home of Lewis Cliff, which is lo
cated on the main street of Waymart,
close to the Methodist church.
The house Is already under quaran
tine. This measure was employed as a
precaution as soon as the suspicious
symptoms manifested themselves. Dr.
Corson, of Waymart, Is the physician
who Is in charge. When the young
man was first "taken sick there was a
fear that It might bo smnll-po.w The
symptoms, however, had noL developed
so as to make a positive diagnosis.
Way by day, however, the case had
grown mote like a case of small-pox
and to Insure the safety of the eom
'inuuity the physicians who saw the pa
tient advised a direct and strict quar
antine to be maintained. Yesterday
there was an eruption that encircled
Hull's body and when this was ob
served the aid of older physicians,
those who have seen and attended
cases of small-pox. was sought. Ac
cordingly, today outside physicians will
go to Wayinart to examine the patient
and pass Judgment on his condition.
j i-r. j i. v. Logan, oi cranton, tue
physician In this section lor the state
board of health, was notified last night.
3i is expected that it will lie-determined
positively today whether or not the
case is small-pox.
In the meantime the cuarantine will
be rigidly enforced, Xot only this but
the persons who liuv" come In contact
with or near the case have been vac
cinated. The residents of Wayinart are
also being vaccinated. It is a matter
of congratulation among tin people of
Waymart that the nuarantlne was es
tablished t-o soon as the patient came
under tile notice of the doctors.
Hull Is one of it family of brothers
who own the old llollenbacl; farm In
"Waymart. He was at Salem, a few
miles from Waymart. for some days
before returning Waymart sick a week
or so ago. lie went to the (,'liir house
on reaching Waymart and has since
been there. The clicumstance of his
having been iiwuj from home, and In
the possible danger of having come in
contact with persons who camo from
towns where small-pox exlKted, caused
the physicians to order the (iiiarantlne,

Edward Casey, of Powdorly Itoad, Is
Almost in n Dying' Condition from
nn Attack That Has Lasted Thrco
l'dwnrd Casey, of Powderly road, ono
of tho best known residents In Carbon
dale township, Is In a OangerotiH way
from tin ttttuck of hiccoughs that has
reduced him to n desperate state ot
weakness. Last night, while thoro was
hope of tho nttaek being controlled, It
was exceedingly weak. Since Friday,
ho bus suffered spasm after spasm, the
muscular contraction of the diaphragm
being so violent that he has been un
able to receive any nourishment, Jsvon
u liquid like water exciting the muscles
nnd greatly aggravating the attacks.
Casey was stricken on Friday. A
pliyslelan was -called Immediately. For
the llrst few days the hiccoughing was
violent only during a few hours of the
day. Since Sunday, the attneks In
creased In severity and number, nnd
have continued to grow, until now there
Is little success In controlllntr them.
The heroic remedies that are usually
applied were all employed, but wore of
no avail In subduing tho hiccoughing.
Unless the spasms are controlled with
in two or three duys, at tho most, the
sufferer will be so weakened from the
attacks and lack of nourishment that
he will die of exhaustion.
Mr. Casey Is well-known In this city.
Tie has been active In politics In Car
bondale township, and has held tho
olllce of supervisor for two terms.

Puninhment of Soldior Lad, Whom
Chief McAndrow Landed,
"Corporal" William Clark, the gay
soldier laddie, who cut itultc u figure
here a few months ago by flashing up
and down the main streets In his uni
form of blue, is now In thu penitentiary
and will bo there for tho next three
years, unless he is called awny or Is
Tho "corporal" was given this sen
tence In Heading, this state, a few days
ago. The news wns received yesterday
by Chief McAndrow, who made us
clever n capture, by arresting Clark,
as was tnndo during his term of ofhcc.
Clark came hero dressed in a soldier's
uniform and wearing the stripes of n
corporal. Ho gave out that ho was a
recruiting officer, nnd that ho Intended
to open tt station in this city. On the
strength of these representations, Clark
was given bonrd and lodging at Mrs.
Webb's boarding house. At tho same
tlmo he was making himself solid with
several young men of the town, who
were ttiken In by his cleverly told
stories nnd his apparent sincerity. Ho
had even inndo arrangements for the
hire of a horse and buggy from one of
the local liveries, when Chief McAn
drow walked In on him and landed hlin
in the city jail. The chief read In a
Philadelphia paper of a man, who an
swered Clark's description, who wns
wanted for horse stealing. He spotted
Clark, and, as subsenuent events
proved, he took the right man,
Clark was the most cheerful story
teller that the local newspaper men
ever mot. He told tho most palpable
falsehoods, and ho spun stories about
himself until, in the language of Hilly
Baxter, he got rid of so much hot air
that his cell looked like a. smoking car.
It developed, as suspected, that Clark
was no soldier, and that the suit of
blue was a means of aiding his graft
schemes. There were other charges
against him, besides that on which he
was sentenced, horse-stealing, but ho
will escape punishment for these.

Tho newspapers gavo only brief space to tho story of. tlio Western man who fought a pack
of wolres to save his wife. Even then tho story dwelt more on tho peril of tho woman than tho
courago of tho man. It is natural that a man should stand between his wife and peril. It is to
be expected that if lie sees her in danger ho will hazard lifo to save her. And yet tho man who
would rush into a burning building at his wife's cry of need, or face a horde of wolves in her
defonso will see her scorched and torn by disease without a thought of giving her help. As a
fact it is not becauso a man is careless or unsympathetic that ho makes no effort to spare his wifo
tho suffering of disease, but becauso no man oan ever understand the awful misery which can ,bo
produced by womanly diseases. Then again the diseases that undermine tho woman's strength
and health progress gradually. To-day is compared with yesterday, and tho comparison docs
not show any particular change. But if sido by side tho husband could seo tho face and form of
tho brido of a few years back and the face and form of the worn wife of to-day, tho change
would shock and alarm him. He would not let her drift along another day at tho mercy of dis"
easc. If she told him that she had "doctored " and taken medicine but without any benclit, ho
would begin to inquire what medicine there "was which could be relied on as a safe cure for
womanly ills, and ho would liston eagerly to such an experience a3 is here related by Mr. Lewis A.
My wife commenced to complain twenty years ago," writes Mr. Lewis A. Miller (Kx-Chier-of-Police), o
Prospect Street, Weissport, Pa. "We have tried the skill of twelvo different doctors. She took gallons o
and will do so, for there is nothinsr better on earth.
You can publish this letter if you wish. We have received such benefit that we wish even- sufferer could
derive the same amount of good. My wife's complaint seemed to be a complication of diseases so the doc
tors said. We will ever remain your friends. May God bless you and your Institute."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription may bo relied on as a safe and reliable remedy for the euro
of womanly diseases. It contains no alcohol and is entirely free front opium, cocaine and all other
narcotics. It establishes perfect regularity, dries the drains which weaken women, heals inflam

sleeplessness and other rosults of a diseased condition of the delicate womanly organism.
"My wife was afflicted with uterine trouble for several years," writes Mr. T. C. Day, of Little Britain
Lancaster Co., Pa., "and in November, 1898, the doctor said she had a mishap. He treated her for about two
months or so, but there was but little improvement. I wrote you after she had commenced to take Favorite
Prescription and you told us to get.' Golden Medical Discovery' also. She took six or seven bottles of
Favorite Prescription' and two of ' Goldeu Medical Discovery,' and was cured and able to attend to h
household work once more."
Mr. Miller and Mr. Day both wrote to Dr. Pierce for advice, and freely received it, to the
lasting holp and benefit of tho wives who were sick..
Any sick woman has tho samo privilege of consultation by letter, free, with Dr. Pierce.
All correspondence is strictly private and sacredly confidential. Address Dr. R. V. Piorco
Buffalo, N. Y. '
If your case is peculiar ; if you havo "doctored" for years without permanent benefit ; even
if your condition has been pronounced incurable, write to Dr. Pierce and receive free the benefit
of his wiso medical advice and kind, fatherly counsel.
"My wife was sick for eight years," writes Albert H. Fulte, Esq., of Altamont, Grundy Co., Tetni. "She
bad uterine disease and was treated by two physicians and got no relief. At last I read in one of your Memo
randum Books which you sent me, about Dr. Pierce's medicines and we decided to try his ' Favorite Pre
scription.' I sent to the drug store and got one bottle and the first dose gave ease and sleep. She had not
slept any for three nights. Being sure that it would cure her I sent for five more bottles, and when she had
taken the sixth bottle she was sound and well."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription has worked wonders for weak and sick women. It has
cured womanly diseases when all other means of euro had been tried in vain. Its cures aro
thorough and lasting. Sick women aro cured and stay cured. Weak women are made strong
and kept strong by this great woman's medicine.
Sometimes a dealer, tempted by tho little more profit paid on tho sale of less meritorious
preparations, will offer a substitute for "Favorite Prescription" as "just as good." Judged
by its record of cures of womanly ills, there is no other medicino just as good as "Favorite
