aged District Everything Is in
Splendid Order and Patients Sur
It e.iii be stated as a fact that will
stand 'the test of the closest investiga
tion that the unfortunate! poor of Car
bondalu aro very well provided for by
the directors which make up the board
of the CarliomUile poor department.
It there is any taxpayer in Carbon
dale who has nny desire to learn how
the poor taxes of the city are being
disposed of, let him visit the poor farm
and the almshouse ill Greenfield town
ship and he will be satisfied that the
directors who make up the poor board
are certainly making- every provision
that could bo made for the eare of
the helpless, aged and poor who are
entrusted to their care, at the same
time meeting every want and neces
sity with the utmost economy, con
sistent with a proper disposition of the
needs of the inmates of the alms
house. At the same time, the visiting
taxpayer will be recompensed for the
time and cfl'orl of his visit by the com
fortable surroundings and the cheer
ful, contented nmnner of the sixteen
inmates who aio depending on the
charity of the taxpayers.
. A visit Wits made to the farm and
almshouse yesterday by Prisitlent
John JlcC'abe, Secretary McMillan and
Director Junius .RurUe. The three di
rectors were accompanied by the rep
resentatives of the vicinity press.

edge of how the inmates were Mir

THE NEW ROAD'S ROUTE.
The "Cannon Ball" Has Appropri
ated Property Along Elver Street
to Sixth Avenue, Indicating That
Its Route Will Be Along There.
The route chosen to enter the city by
the projectors of tho new electric road
from Scrttnton to Carbondalo, the "can
non ball," as It hits been designated, is
along Ulver street to Sixth tivenue.
This carefully guarded secret was
divulged yesterday In n notice received
by Mrs. Carrie Ouuglutn from the coun

It will bo recalled, la having n. villa
erected nt the corner of Sixth avenue
and Ulver street, on the triangular lot
at that Intersection. The cellar Is ul
ntost dug and II was Intended to begin
the masonry work before n week. Yes
terday, however, operations were ceased
because of a notice sent Mrs, Guughan
from tho railway company's counsel. It
was nn order, In a sense, inasmuch as It

that tho now road had appropriated her
property to lis own uses: that it nad

for tho contemplated road, and had set

early as September of last year. AVhllo
The Tribune I old a I thnt ttmo of the
surveyors hnvlnr; taken measurements
along 1 liver street at this point, and of
the Anthracite building being the pos

company, of course, will have to pur
chase the land, in order to rome into
possession, and would have to Indem
nify the owners up to the time that tho
survey was made and the land staked
out. which In this instance was last
September. Any Improvements which
might be carried on about the prop
erties Involved, would bo carried on at
the risk 'of the owners, after tho serv
ing on litem of a notice similar to the
one received yesterday' by Mrs. Gau
glian. None of the other property own
ers has received such a notice from the
railroad company, for the reason that
no Improvements tiro being effected.
The notice Is a warning that the rail
road company has tin option, as it were,
on the property, under the right of emi
nent domain, and (hat no changes may
be made unless at the owner's risk of
losing on them In the event of the pur
chase bv the railroad company.
This announcement of tho entrance

topic of conversation among those who
heard of It.

temper enough to scare away a dozen
lovers, and last but not least plain
country folk are mado foolish clowns.

"David" in the reality.

Tho Indian Modlcinc Man had an Influence among Iho tribo
which was equal, if not superior to, the Chief. Mnny roots nnd
horbs havo been known to tho American Indians for centuries as
valuable in tho treatment of certain diseases. It seems a provision
of God that the man who lives close to nature has tho power to
recognize certain plants as effective for aiding the human system
to expel disease.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is a blood purifier, liver
regulator and general tonic that depends for its curative properties
upon roots nnd herbs some of which are gathered by the Indians
on tho reservations,
Tho Indian, as well as the white man, recognizes that tho
spring is the season of our greatest depression it is tho season for,!
loss of flesh or spirits. A blood purifier as well as a (onio is needed
at this time to strengthen" tho system to assimilate, food and put
the body in a wholesome statu so that it can throw off tho germs
of many diseases which at this time of year arc always hunting for
This is tho work which the "Medical Discovery " accomplishes
in a straightforward way without any dependence upon alcohol
(for Dr. Pierco guarantees that no alcohol can be found in this
medicine). Tho combination of herbs in this "Discovery" of Dr.
Pierce goes to the seat of discaso by expelling the poisons in the
blood then it tones up the stomach so that it can the better
assimilate food, and in consequence tho person who lias lost flesh,
appetite and good spirits all at tho same time begins to pick np,
To gain in fat is nearly always to gain in blood, and the person
who begins with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is soon
told liow much better ho looks by his friends who seo a gain of
flesh in his face. A gain of wholesome flesh up to a certain point
goes hand in hand with rise in all the other essentials of health,
and notably in the color and the amount of red corpuscles. The
many testimonials received by Dr. Pierce during tho year are tho
true test of what his " Discovery " will do.
I believe that your medicines are the best in the world, and I hon
estly believe tliaH would have been in my grave to-day had it not been

Moss, of New London, Stanly Co., N. C. In the fall of 1S92 I took a hard
cold, which seemed to settle in my head, terminating in catarrh of the head.

she was like I was. He said we were
so and see what kind of medicine
sent me some of your pamphlets. So I secured some of the medicine and began takintr it. In one weel- I was
able to do my cooking. When I began taking the medicine I could sit up only a few minutes at a time,' and I
could rest or sleep only a little while at a time. My throat was so sore at times I could not even swallow
sweet nulk. and my tonsils were full of little eating sores. My left side was swollen out of shape and so sore
I could not bear my clothes fastened, as I could hardly get my breath. My victuals would sour on my stomach
before I could leave the table. . It seemed as though I was out of fix all over. My folks and friends had about
given me up. The doctor said I would not get well. My father said I would not live a month, but three

I am to you and the good Lord for your medicine. Your ' Golden Medical Discovery is the best medicine I
ever saw for chills I was having a chill every day when I commenced taking it, and have not had a single

that she knew she could not live much longer. The suffering was so severe and the pains moved so rapidlv
that I can hardly describe the case. The doctor said she was entirely ' run-down,' yet his medicine did not
seem to help her any. She suffered greatly from dizziness in head, pains under left shoulder-blade and over
the kidneys, pains in back and lower part of stomach, which seemed to move all the time from the bottom to
left side of stomach. When first taken sick she seemed torsive rheumatism ; the pains first seemed to be in
soles of her feet. Was also troubled with her throat and catarrh in head, so you see the me wni n rnir,ii.

This is my sincere belief."
"The reason I delayed writing was because I wanted to wait one year after I had taken the medicine before
giviug my statement, and now 1 can send a good, conscientious testimonial," writes Mr. Chas. II. Sergeant, ot
Plain City, Madison Co., Ohio. "During the summer and fall of 1S96 I became all "run-down," nerves were
out of order and stomach out of order. I wrote to Dr. Pierce for advice. He said I had general debility and
advised Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. Thanks to you for your advice, I used t,ix bottles-' and
since I stopped taking it about one year ago, I have not taken any medicine of any kind, and have been able
to work every day. My appetite is good, I can eat three square meals a day. and I do not feel that miserable
burning in the stomach after eating. My blood and nerves are in good shape, and, well iu fact, I think I am
in pretty good running order."
