A NUPTIAL SURPRISE.
Miss Nellie Lynott of the West Side
and Homer Van Gouler Wedded in
Windsor, N. Y., Last September.
The Pleasant News Made Known
There soeina no end to nuptial sur
prises, in Carliondale which have fol
lowed closely upon each other the past
The latest surprise of this character
was yesterday, when the news leaked
out of the marriage of the daughter
and son of two well known families of
Carbondalo. Jliss Nellie Lynott, young
i est daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Lynott, of the West Side and Homer
Van Gorder, son of Mr .and Mrs. C. B.
Van Gorder, of Terrace street.
The wedding took place lasp Septem
ber when Carbondalo was begining to
celebrate her golden jubilee. On Mon
day, September 2, they quietly with
drew fiom the festivities to Windsor,
N. Y where the ceremony that united
their young lives was solemnized. They
returned to Carbondalo in the evening,
but kept the news of the union a secret
until a few days ago, when it was an
nounced to the families. This interest
ing announcement will bo eagerly re
ceived among the young people of the
town as the parties are conspicuous in
their social sets and have hosts of ad
mirers. Mr. Van Gorder hns been an efficient
employee for the Carbondalo Telephone
company until a few weeks ago when
he resigned to accept an advanced
position Willi the Interstate Telephone
company at Trenton, N. J., one which
offers opportunities to satisfy his am
bition to rise.
Mrs. Van Gorder has a sunny dis
position which readily wins friends.
They will probably take up their resi
dence in Trenton, but not for some
weeks. Mr. Van Gorder is home in
Carbondale for a few days.

General John 11. Gordon, that grand old
man, the distinguished nnd venerated
son of the South, on the occasion of his

The News says: "John B. Gordon,
over his protestations, lias again been
unanimously elected eommnnder-in-chlef
of the United Confederate Vet

courageous and more chivalrous. In
peace ho has striven, while tenderly
true to the lierolo memories of tlio
great struggle in which he distinguished
himself, to bring into close harmony
and more fraternal union those who
wore the blue nnd those who wore the
gray. His eloquence lias touched many
hearts where bitterness was raging to
gentle icsignation nnd kindly feelings.
His own example has led to emulation
many thousnnds upon either sldo of
Mason and Dixon's line. In all efforts
for greater rienco and rood-will among
his countrymen there has been no trace
of subservience nnd no yielding of self
respect. Ilia attempts to bring about a

A SUDDEN DEATH.
Mrs. May Belle Cramer, Wifo of
Merchant Louis Cramer Unexpect
edly Called Hence.
A sudden summons to depart this life
came to Mrs. May Belle Cramer, wife
of Merchant Louis W, Cramer, at her
homo on Laurel street, yesterday fore
noon. Mrs. Cramer was taken on Monday
with what was supposed to bo a mild
uttnek of grin. However, Wednesday
afternoon she sat on tho porch of the
residence and yesterday she was about
tho house feeling so comfortable and
cheerful that Mr. Cramer had no liesl
tnnry in going to ills store on Salem
avenue. About 10 o'clock she collapsed.
13 r. 13. L. Bailey was hurriedly sum
moned, but ho was at Mrs. Cramer's
bedside only a few minutes before she
Gxpltcd. Heart failure is ascribed as tho
cause of death. Mr. Cramer readied
homo after his wife hnd passed away.
The news of Mrs. Cramer's sudden
and unexpected death sent a thrill ot
sorrow through tho wide circle of
friends to whom she was endeared by
her beautiful traits of character. Tho
news was likewise received with sad
ness and gloom throughout the com
munity, for Mrs. Cramer's gentle in
fluence was widespread.
Tho deceased, who was Miss May
Belle Fuller, only daughter of John and
Lizzie I. Fuller, the latter of whom sur
vives, was born in Carbondale twenty
five years ago and lived hero continu
ously, with the exception of a few years
spent in Nicholson nnd in Jermyn. She
was graduated from tho Carbondalo
High school in tho class of 'S9, and
taught school for several years, achiev
ing an enviable record of efficiency.
Mrs. Cramer wan a member of tho
Berean Baptist church and exerted an
effective influence In the Sunday school,
particularly, in which she labored with
characteiistic xeal and unselfishness.
Mrs. Cramer was wedded on April 27,
1S0S, to Lewis Cramer at their new
home in Jermyn, by the venerable Rev.
W. 15. Grow, of this city. Besides Mr.
Cramer, one child, Leland Russel, aged
six months, survives; also Mrs. Cramer's
mother, Mrs. Lizzie I. Fuller.
THE BREWEBY TROUBLE.
It Was Over the Employment of
Certain Union Hands.
There is some misapprehension as to
tho labor trouble at the new plant of
the Fell Brewing company, in Simpson.
The story that was widely circulated
was that Contractor O'Neill, of Scran
ton, who has the contract for tho erec
tion of the structural iron, wanted to
employ non-union help and for this
reason President Krantz stopped the
work In favor of union help; and that
Mr. O'Neill hnd abandoned the contiact.
The trouble, however, did not arise from
tho emulovment of non-union hands,
nor has Contractor O'Neill given up tho
work. He endeavored 1o and did em
ploy union help, but it was not the
class of men who work on stiuctural
iron that wan engaged. Men, other than
structural iron woikers, were engaged,
and at wages that, while they accorded
with tho class of labor employed, were
not the same that the lion workers
would receive. Tho objection, therefore,
it will bo seen, was to tho cmploymont
of men from other trades union than
tlio iron workers, who, the American
Federation of Labor olllcers in tills dis
trict insist, arc tlio only ones who were
qualified under the union rules to do
the work. In other words, the iron
workers were being discriminated
against by the employment of men
from other trades unions, at lower
wages, nnd who were qualified to do
tills class of work.
On Thursday tlio American Feder
ation of Labor organizer from Carbon
dale had a conference with Contractor
O'Neill in Scranton. While no positive
agreement was reached, it is likely that
the matter will bo adjusted, nnd none
but structural Iron workers will be en
gaged to do the work,
CLOSE OF THE SEASON.
"Arizona" Will Be the Event of the
Tlio close of the dramatic season In
Carbondalo will occur this evening
when Augustus Thomns' "Arizona"
will be given nn elaborate production
at the Grand.
Manager Bryno was exceedingly for
tunate in securing this attraction for
no better offering could bo provided
for Cnrbondnllans, as the close of what
has, under tho circumstances, been a
successful season. "Arizona" ranks
with "Tlio Bonnie Brier Bush" and is
under the same management. Of
course the acting of J, II. Stoddard
will not bo realized in this production,
but It can be safely said that tlio even
ing will not b a whit less enjoyable.
Tho rest of tho company is made up of
as capablo actors as wero seen In "Tho
Bonnie Brier Bush." The principle
suggestion that "Arizona" Is In tho
same class ns "Tlio Bonnlo Brier Bush"
Is of itself an nssupaneo of a rare

E. J, Winn Had a Narrow Escape
Whilo Working at th Sedgwick
Machine Works, The Ac
count as Ho Gave it to
E. J, Winn, a machinist in the cm
ploy of tho Sedgwick machine works,
at I'oughkeepsle, N. Y hud a narrow
cscnpo, but Baved himself by his own
efforts. Ho told this story to a report
er ns follows:
"I hnd been working here for eleven
years," he said, "without even a week's
time to spend In rest. It was all right
till a year ago when I began to lose
flesh and to experlenco a severe pain
in the right side. My appetite was
fair but I could ent only the plainest
of food nnd not heartily of that. My
weight was reduced to 118 pounds.
"Besides tho pain which was very
shnrp at times, I could not stoop over
without being dizzy when I stood erect
ngnln, and my blood was thin and
watery. I employed physicians who
said I wns suffering from Indigestion. I
did not obtuln nny material relief and,
as a friend suggested that I should try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People, I did so.
"Tho result is very evident. I noticed
a llttio improvement by the time the
first box had been taken. I persisted,
nnd continued till four boxes had been
taken. This was about a year ago. I
have had no return of the trouble; I
am back at my normal weight of 132
pounds nnd am feeling well and strong.
If anything I can say about the remedy
Will do any good to others who nre
afflicted as I was, I am glad to say it,
for there is no doubt that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People cured me."
Mr. Winn lives at No. 325 Church
street, Poughkeepsie, N. Y., and is will
ing to substantiate his above state
ment. Tho pills which cured lihn are
not a patent medicine, but a prescrip
tion used for many years by an emin
ent practitioner who produced the
most wonderful results with them, cur
ing all kinds of weakness arising from
a watery condition of the blood or
shattered nerves, two fruitful causes
of almost every ill to which flesh is
heir. Dr. Williams Pink Pills for
Palo People are sold by all druggists,
or direct from Dr. Williams Medicine
Co., Schenectady, N. Y., fifty cents per
box; six boxes for two dollars and a
half. Send for free booklet of medical
"seats of his youth," where he devel
oped the rugged manhood that has
stood him in good stead through life.
This Is his first visit there in nearly
twenty years, ten years before he be
came a minister.

a delightful day with tho Alumni and
pupils of the Mt. Pleasant academy.
The twenty-fifth anniversary will be

A Boston Woman's Experience.
"Dear Mrs. Pinkhaji: I feel very grateful to you for the benefit :j
derived from your kind advice and remedies. I was troubled with a complid
cation of female troubles, had ovaritis, painful and irregular menstruation,
leucorrhcea, nervousness and weakness. I had no appetite and could not
sleep nights. Tho least exertion would cause shortness of breath and dull
pains in my hips and side. Tho doctors all advised mo to have an operation
and have one of my ovaries, removed, but this I could not bear to think of. I
was induced to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and
after taking the first bottle I was much improved. It renewed my appetite,
health and strength. I continued taking it, also your Blood Purifier and
Sanative Wash until entirely rinrcd of all my troubles. The pains have never
returned and my health is splendid. Your remedies have been a boon to mo
and I am sure many a woman owes'her life to them." Mabie Webb, 358
Columbus Ave., Boston, Mass. (March 15, 1901.)
No other medicine in tho world has received such 'widespread
and unqualified endorsement.
No other medicine has such a record of cures of female
troubles or such hosts of srratef ul friends. Remember this when
