The News of
.Thomne Thompson, the Second Vic
tim, Is Having a Hard Time of It.
The Other Patient, His Brother, Is
Getting Well Councils Will Take
Effective Action This Week No
New Cases.
The development since Saturday In
the small-pox situation In this city
ntfeets Thomas Thompson, the second
of the two patients In the stricken
fatuity. The disease has a llrm hold
mi him and his condition now Is so
dangerous that the opinion Is ho will
have a hard time to tally through the
siege. He Is the younger of the two,
about 13 years of ace.
' The Indications In the ease of the first
patient ure exceedingly favorahle. lie
has reached the stage where the erup
tions are healing and beginning to
scale. Ills recovery seems assured.
In the ease of the other brother,
though the sumo faithful treatment has
linen followed, the ultuck Is more viru
lent and the progress more rapid.
There Is scarcely a portion of his body
that. Is not disfigured by an eruption.
The physician in charge is doing every
thing within his power and means lo
to carry the sufferer through. None of
the other two members of the family
has shown the least symptom of the
disease, and are in good spirits under
the circumstances.
Councils will meet some night tills
week to adopt means of dealing with
the situation. There Is no alarm
over the two eases that exist, but the
experience of nearby towns demand
that every precaution be taken. A
joint meeting of councils will be called
by .Mayor O'Neill, who will probably
make certain recommendations.
Among the things to be considered
will be fixing the remuneration of the
physician who will be authorized to
eare for such oases: No action In this
respect lias been taken as yet. The
pliysielun who Is looking after the
Thompsons is doing so only from a
sense of duty.
AVlth respect to his charge of them,
It can be said assuredly that he Is tak
ing absolutely n'o chances. Kvery pre
caution and safeguard have been em
ployed since lie was called Into the
case. An Idea of how he protects him
self and those who come in contact
with him can be gained when It Is
mentioned that ho devotes about four
hours each day to disinfecting himself,
using the most effective of modern an
tiseptics. He is scrupulously careful,
and, as suggested before, lakes no
chances whatever.
$300 Taken from Him, but Recov
ered by Constable Neary.
A well-known citizen is blessing For-
tune, and. Incidentally, Constable Ed
wurd Neary, that he Is not today the
loser or J.S00.
Yesterday forenoon, while the Erie
excursion train was standing at the
Seventh avenue station, he had occa
sion to use the lavatory of the depot.
"While he washing, he left Ills
wallet nearby and walked away with
out it. He returned in only a few
minutes, on discovering' his loss, but
the wallet and contents $"00 were
gone! he could get no trace of It. Con
stable Neary was sought. In a few
minutes, ho had a clue, which he fol
lowed until In; located the man on the
excursion train. The wallet was in his
inside coat pocket and bulging out
clearly showed its outlines. When ap
proached by the keen constable, the
man's face took on a crest fallen look.
He handed ovr this wallet without u
word, and before he could make any
explanations the train pulled out for
Binghamton with the man a. passen
ger. It is not known whether or not tho
purposes of tho man who took the
money were honest or otherwise, ns he
had no time to explain. An investiga
tion is likely lo follow.
The loser was overjoyed at the re
covery of the money and has slnco
been singing the praises of Constable
t Neary.
Whnt tin Admiring, Conservative
Scranton Writer Says of Our Es
teemed Townsman.
The following merited tribute to
Postmaster J. II. Thomas, our esteemed
townsman, was penned by P. A. Bar
" rett, In ills ".Men as They Pass" col
umn. In yesterday's Ehiilra Telegruni:
"Postmaster John II. Thomas, of
Carbondale, was in town this week
looking quite as fresh and cheery us
ever, although he celebrated the fifty
fourth anniversary of his birth last
April. Mr, Thomas was born In Car
bontlalo and at the age of ten was a
shitepioker at the Frogtown breaker,
receiving thirty-live cents a day and
walking two miles to and two miles
from work each day; at thirteen ho
was a mule driver: at seventeen a coal
loader, and at twenty a miner. Later
;ho became a stone niasou, got Into
jpollUca and secured a position on the
t police force of Curhoiidtlle as 'one ot
itlio finest. In 1SSS ho wns elected clerk
(of the courts, which position he held
nine yciii'. He Ib now entering upon

It offered for a day of rest, amid the
tttilet and hentUlfttl surroundings of the
rural lands contiguous to Oarhondate,
were taken advantage of by n multi
tude of Cnrboiidiillnns.
All of tho nearby uolifts of Interest
and woodland beatrty were sought. A
long procession of carriages passed
from tho city In tho early morning
over the several roads leading from
Curbouditto, and before the day was
half over, not u carriage or n eonvey
nnce of any sort could he engaged at
tiny of tho liveries. It wns the first real
weekly exodus or rest-seekern and was
a precursor of what will be the rule
every Sunday until the cool of autumn
makes driving unpleasant.
It won a rare day for driving, ns the
roads were In the most favorable con
dition, following the rain of the past
few days. The landscape, too, partook
of the benefits of the rainfall, and wore
Its brightest green, tile green that Is so
restful to the eye.
Crystul lake, Clifford and Wuymart
were the favorite places for driving
parties, while a number went to 1'oyu
telle and Rliighumlon; others taking
advantage of the pleasant trolley ride
over the wood-lined mountain to For

Mail Carriers Are After tho Police
men for a Game of Ball.
There will bo a union, reunion or dis
union of the blue and the gray on the
afternoon of July 4, or some morning
between 4 and 6, If the Carbondale po
licemen dare accept the challenge that
is hereby hissed at them by the mull
carrleis of the Carbondale postofllcc.
The carriers have a team, be It
known, and a few to spare. The car
rleis know the iiatUnial game, he this
also known, for at cutting across lots
in hustling over their routes they en
counter enough of sanies of "one, two
and throe-old cat" to teach the line
points of the national sport to the po
licemen. As suggested earlier, the game needs
to be played either July -I, nfl&rnoon,
or some summer morning between i
and ti o'clock. After 4 o'clock the Im
porlant hours of sleep are ahead of the
Carbondale policemen, and the carriers
are too considerate to ask the men In
blue to overwork. On the contrary, the
carriers are willing to make the sacri
fice of rising ten or fifteen minutes
earlier in order to accommodate the
"coppers" and then rub in a defeat.
A guess at the make-up of both
teams Is something like this:
Carriers William Chase, catcher, to
play and scoop the high ones; P. F.
Foxe, pitcher, who is onto the curves of
the sphere as he is on the curves of the
country's railroads; I. F. Carroll, the
short man In short field; David Walsh,
another long fellow, first base, to pull
down the short man's sky rockets;
Cioorgp Davis, second base, who has
spent tile past week sizing up' Brother
Chase's throwing arm: Martin 1.. Oli
ver, third base, who will be good com
pany for tlie short man; William Fox,
right Held, captain of the .Held force;
John Nealoa, centre field, where. he will
have no questions to answer, and
Frank .Smith, substitute carrier, left
Held, the best place for the fat men, as
no blue-coat will over knock n fly that
Policeman Chief McAndrew, catcher;
another long fellow In the right place,
who is supposed to catch base balls as
readily us he catches thieves; Patrol
man Carden, pitcher, tlie Fallbrook
man, where all the good throwers come
from; Patrolman Huikly, the Belmont
short man; Patrolman McAndrew, first
base, another long fellow; Patrolman
Hell, second base, with "Policeman
Jack" to catch tlie chiefs lightning
throws: Park Policeman William Kil
leen, third base, where he can divide
his time chasing sparrows; Special Po.
Ilcenmn Clark Helssel In right Held as
aide-de-camp to First Baseman McAn
drew; .Special Archie Uuriiey, In cen
tre Held, where there will be nothin'
tloin'; and Special Patrick Malla In left
Held, close to home.
Mall-wago-i Drivers P. A. Walker
and Fred Sheridan will transport the
bats, shin pads, breast protectors, etc.,
to the field of battle; and Constable
Kdward Neary will be the chief coaclier,
taking his stand near Chief McAndrew.
Constable Morau will have u roll ot
long green to take all odds on the men
in blue and Constable Emmett will put
himself in communication by wireless
telegraphy with Steve Clllby for point
ers on liow they play the game in
Cherry Ridge.

Tho Half Moons Fell Before Scran
ton's Team,
The pets were defeated yesterday af
ternoon on Duffy's Held by the central
city tcain of Hcrnnton In so decisive a
manner that removed any doubt that
might exist In the minds of the crank
tclntlve to the merits of both teams. It
was on overwhelming defeat, and the
bcBt team won. The Crescents for sev
en Innings played u great game, but
nt that point of the contest they weak
ened and the .Scranton boys bore them
to the earth. McAndrew had, until the
fatal seventh Inning, the Scranton team
completely at his mercy, but when they
began to get on to his curves they cer
tainly made the most of their time and
energy, and before they had censed In
their efforts, seventeen runs were
marked to their account. Fox was an
enigma lo the pets and all they could

Dr. W. H. Morse, tho famous physi.

of this great medicine:
"I have known it to cure chronic Inflam
