NO GAME TODAY.
Tho Crescents, However, Will Play
tho Alerts the First of Next Week.
The game which was scheduled for
Duffy's Held tills afternoon between tho
Crescents utid the. Alerts, of Scranton,
has been postponed until the beginning
of next week,
The Aleits are said to bo true to their
name, and (ho coming contest will bo
one worth seeing. In tho connection,
it might bo suggested that the Cres
cents need something more than an en
couraging attendance at tho games.
Financial aid Is one of the chief factors
In tho life of the game in Carbondale,
ns It Is In other places, even In llones
dale. A generous tesponse on the part
of the cranks, who Hock in multitudes
to the games, Is needed, and it is
hoped that at the next game tho en
thusiasts will manifest their apprecia
tion of the efforts of tho Crescent man
agement and tho players themselves to
provide good, live base ball, by drop
ping coins bigger thnn ten-cent pieces,
If possible, Into the strong box. This
support Is vitally essential to the con

TAME HARES GREW FIERCE.
How an Englishman Made Friends
and Taught Them Tricks.
I'rom tlie London I'lcld.
In August last n keeper brought me
two leverets only just able to feed
themselves. They had been captured
In a Jleld of long clover, their mother
being with them at the time. I put
them Into a low, wide tin bath, wired
all round and over the top. They weio
ut first terrified, and sat huddled to
gether for the remainder of the duy
and night, refusing food of any sort. In
the early hours of the morning I suc
ceeded in feeding 'them with eoiiio
warm milk and again later still, by
degrees, they began to nibble clover.
I tamed them by slow stagw, till
they would eat fiom my hand and let
me' nurse them. But iib their fear of
me gradually diminished I was amazed
to find how forcibly and persistently
they were prepared to resent Inter
ference. They lle'w ut me, bit and
setalched me, making a most peculiar
basing sound, ns so ferocious nnd
huitful wore their attacks that I was
forced to defend myself with a pair
of thick gloves.
Then followed a series of boxing
matches, the assaults upon mo fre
quently lasting several minuter, with
periodical rests, when they would ro
tteat to ii corner, regain their wind,
and attack me again more guvugoly
than before. When completely beaten
they would let mo stroke them and lick
my hand as usual, and bo friends
One of these hares Is now a most en
gaging animal, knows me perfectly ond
will jump up on my knee, climb up
and kiss mo when told, sit up and beg,
jump through u hoop and shake hands,
always giving tho right paw, It will
also seek Its food when 1 hide It und
does nil In Its power to show its affec
tion for me. It lives In the house, is
loso all day and thoroughly enjoys a
good roll on the rug, where It frequent
ly lies Stretched full length beforo the
fire. It also plays with two retriever
dowo, ot-vhom It has no fear whatever,
and often lies, between them while
In tho eatly part of last December I
received two full grown wild hares
from Norfolk, und I was anxious to
discover If It were possible to tamo and
train them, They sulked for a week,
eating little, but I kept them near me,
and by degrees tamed them, teaching
them to feed from my hand, come to
me when called and sit quietly on my
shoulder while I carried them about.
Then, as with the others, when all
fear of pie hud left them, the real
trouble commenced; they Hew at mo,
biting und scratching, and making
that grunting ui a "hissing" Bound al

despairingly so, wq made fi lends, but

tho sunny stdo of a stono fonco, crouched in somo hol

tho picturesqiw embodiment of "that tired fooling."
If thoro's any timo when tho hard working farm hand
envies tho tramp it is when ho straightens ftis back for
a minute's rest, wipes the sweat from his forehead, and
as ho glances around discovers tho pilgrim stretched
out at his case enjoying u comfortablo pipe. There's
something in tho toiler's feelings which makes him
revolt for tho moment at his enforced labor. IIo

Probably his digestion is a " little off." Tho winter

heavy foods has been too much for
him. It is also probablo that his

Discovery and 'Pleasant Pellets. I have only used these medicines for a short time, but
am now quite stout and enjoying a healthy life a gain that I wish every man could enjoy.
I cant say too much for Dr. Pierce's medicines. '
Dr. Pierco's GoldeiTMedicaf Discoverydoes not belong to that class of pre
parations 'commonly known as "spring medicines." "Golden Medical Discovery"
cures diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition,
stimulates tho sluggish liver and purifies tho blood. Because it does theso things
at any time it is tho best medicine for tho spring season ; for tho languid, worn
out, tired feelings aro generally tho result of a disordered or diseased stomach,
involving the blood in impurity and affecting tho liver.
"For the last ten years I suliTered"lintoldTniseVyvithVa)mplicJUoFof diseases.' Twites
Mrs. Howard De Haven, of Slier, Va. "Had dyspepsia, kidney trouble, indigestion,
female weakness, and was weak and generally run-down. When I ato anything would
bloat and have such choking spells that it seemed I would choke to death. ' Would have to
sit up in bed to get my breath. I doctored with, five different physicians and all to no
purpose. I received only temporary lelief, and spent nearly all wo had. In the summer of
1900 my husband persuaded me to try Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. I took one bottle,
then wrote to Dr. Fierce and he advised me, according to the description which I had given
him, to take also his Golden Medical Discovery and Pleasant Pelleta' I took sis bottles
of 'Golden Medical Discovery' and two vials of 'Pellets,' and by that time I felt like a
new woman and stopped taking medicine. I can't praise Dr. Pierce'3 medicines too highly
to all suffering women. , -
Sick people, especially those' suffering from ehronio diseases, aro invited to oon-1.1
suit Dr. Pierce, by letter, free, and so obtain (without charge), tho opinion of a
specialist on their ailments. All correspondence strictly confidential Address

Sometimes a dealer, tempted by the littlo more profit paid on the Balo of less
meritorious medicines, will offer tho customer a substitute as being "just as
erood " as tho " Discoverv." It 'is better for him
unfortunately, this friendship is not
extended to others, who are treated
with hcant courtesy If they luterfeio
with them. They know mo very Well,
and will sniff my hand or my clothes
most noticeably before allowing them
selves to be touched. They possess
keen intelligence, rare cunning and a
dogged determination that I have not
seen equaled In any other animal. They
havo a peculiar method of Indicating
Irritation or fear; unlike rabbits, which
stamp their hind feet In a similar pre
decanient, they make a loud rasping
or grating sound with their teeth,
which Is Instantly received by the
others ns a signal of alarm.

THE WEDDING EING.
Not a Fetter, a Kelic of Barbarism,
but a Symbol of Eternity.
From tho Chicago Clironlile.
Fame somo unlvcislty professors fall
to acquire by learning they aro llablo
to strain after by sensationalism.
A class in anthropology was Informed
tho other day by n ptofessor attached
to tho staff of 11 university Hint tlio
wedding ilng Is n rello ol' barbarism.
He alleged that It represents tho nosa
ring, tho fetter on tho anklo or ho
wrist, by which in past ages the sold
slavo was led away fiom tho mart by
his now mnoter.
Tho provotblal "little learning" was
never moro erroneous, It Is true that
every chain Is composed of links which
uro frequently ciiculur, but It Is also
true that the circle possesses an an
cient symbolism both sublime and beau
tiful. Tho firmament itself bent circul
arly over mankind, suggesting to their
minds Inllnlty und eternity. Every ftar
In tho heavens was outlined In a ring
from the time tho stms sang together.
As early as 'tho age of Ptolemy thero
was a belief lu the sphericity of tho
earth Itself, Copernicus held that the
unlveiso Is spherical, basing his theory
upon the accumulated deductions ot
numerous predecessors. The ancient
Homaus found by experience that tho
circular arch Is tho aichltectonlo form
which Is the most enduring and sup
ports the greatest proportional weiglit.
Tho circular repe.its Itself Infinitely
throughout niiture, sparkling on tho
tiniest drop of dew and resplendent
wheiever tho heavens visibly urch tho
earth. Tho horizon In nature us In art
Is the horizontal base of an aerial arch
cnclicllng the vista,
Christianity udopted tho ring as a
symbol of eternity. It was llrst pluced
by Christianity upon tho cross, thus
blending the foundation of tho Chris
tian church with a piophecy of Its en
durance o the end of time. Tho cross
Itself was older than Christianity, and
tho circle placed upon Its arms was
Intended both to crown It with a halo
and to suggest tho cnternlty of tha
sacrifice it typifies.
In the marriage ceremony tho early!
Christians introduced tho ring In a,
manifold symbolic role.. It represents
not merely an earthly Indissolubility of
tho marilago tie, but also an eternity
of lovtf between those united according
to tho Christian rite.
Prof. Starr should read moro broadly
on symbolism before he lectures on the
significance of tho wedding ring.
THE EXCEPTIONAL MAN.
Always in Demand if He Can Do
What Employers Want Dono.
I'rom Andrew Cirncslc'j "Tho Umpire of Bu3l
Every employer of labor Is studying
the young men around him, most anx
ious to llnd one of exceptional ability.
Nothing In the world so desirable for
him and so piotltuble for blm as such
a man. Every munager In tho works
stands ready, to giasp, to utilize tha
man that can do something that Is
valuable, Every foreman wants to have
under him In his department abla men
upon whom ho can iey and whoso mer
its he obtains credit for, because the
greatest test of ability In a manager
is not the man himself, but the men;
with whom ho is nblo to surround him
self. Theso books on the shelves will
tell you tho story of tho rise of many
men fiom our own 1 units. It Is not tho
educated, or so-culled, classically edu
cated' man, It is not the aristocracy,
It is not tie inouarchs, that have ruled
the destinies of the world, either In
camp, council, laboratory or, workshop.
The great Inventions, tho Improve
ments, tho dlscoveiles In science, tho
greut works n literature have sprung
from the ranks of the poor. You can
scarcely name 11 great Invention,' or
a great discovery, you can scarcely
namo a greut picture, or n great statue,

thing great that has not been tho pro-'
