IN GOOD. CONDITION.
Yearly Statement Bhows Fell School
District to Be the Beat In Its His
tory Schools to CloseTuno 13.
The unnuni reports Hubinlttcil tit tlio
meeting Monthly night show the Fell
township school district to he In tlio
heat condition llminolally perhaps since
the district was formed,
The funds In this hands ot the Irons
liver are siitllclcnt to pay.nll the teach
ers, while the unpaid hills amount to
only $700, with bonds to the amount
of $4,000. This makes this district com
pare favorably with tiny In Lackn
wnnim county. The standing of the
district has been the subject of favor
able comment from County .Superinten
dent or Schools Taylor.
The present standing of the Fell ills
. tvlot Is all the more Ri'iittrylitR since
live years ago the condition ot nnnncos
was almost i oversell. At that lime,
there were $S00O In bonds and the
tenchets salaries were unpaid for six
months or mote.
The board decided nt this mecotlng
to close the pchools June 13.
WILL NOT SHUT DOWN.
The Silk Mills Hero Will Probably
Continue All Summer.
It wns rumored throughout the city
yesteulay that the Hllk mills at Simp
son would shut down indefinitely this
evening. A scarcity of silk, due to the
trouble among the dyers at Pntcrson,
was given as the reason for the con
templated shut down.
It will be a icllef to learn, however,
that this depressing rumor Is unfound
ed. CSenernl Manager Frlcdcr Informed
The Tribune last evening that there
was no truth In the story. Not only
will the mills not shut down tonight,
but they will continue, it is expected,
throughout the summer months, If even
they shut down ot all. There Is hope
that the trouble in Paterson will be
settled, but even If It should not, the
mills here will be able to procure
enough silk from the mills where there
is no disturbance, for several weeks at
least. It Is certain, at any rate, that
there will be no Immediate shutting
down, Mr. Fricdcr says.
This will be cheerful news as the sev
eral thousands of dollars that the mills
here disburse each month Is an import
ant Item in this community at all
times, but particularly during the de
pression consequent with the coal
strike. The wlthdiawal of this sum
would be sorely felt, and there will
accordingly be rejoicing over the dis
sipating: of the disturbing rumor.

Sneaks of Coffee Drinking,
About coffee drinking, Dr. Hewot
says, "X have the best ot reasons for
naming coffee as among the most dnn
goious of slow poisons. My own per
sonal' experience outside of the gen
eral experience gained by my practice
has taught the truth.
At about 16 I became a member of a
young people's society whose pledge
banod the use of all Intoxicants, to
bacco, tea and coffee, until tho ngo ot
21, 1 kept my pledge and early tem
perate habits were formed. Up to
about my 30th year I was an athlete;
no one had better health or spirits.
A short time after passing thirty I
began the use of coffee at breakfast
with an occabiou.il cup at evening par
tics. The ilrst symptoms of ill health I
remember came soon, and later sore
mouth and stomach trouble. Finally
well marked dyspepsia supervened. My
bowels sympathized, of course, also my
nervous system became Impaired. Du
llness attacked me, and tremulant
hands rendered wilting exceedingly

Slasher Boy. Tho horse, which is un
