Wants to Put Big- Eleven. Against
Here Is the latest sample or llones
dale gall, bumptiousness and whatever
you might want to call It. It appeared
in yesterday' Truth:
"Tho management of the Ifonesdale
foot ball team is endeavoring to ar
range a game with the High school
eleven of Carbondnle for next Saturday,
llouesdale's "pig-skin" warriors are
fast developing into gridiron stars, who
will, no doubt, uphold the name of the
Maplo City in possessing u craekerjaek
eleven and who will make the "spurts"
in the town just this side of Monkey
Run feel like thirty cents and a rusty
button. Among the llonesdalo llue-up
will be lounil: Yetter, Murray, Ileury,
Halm, Mlirrau, Dittrlch, ISieller, Stcg
ner, Swift, Jenkins, Miller, Salmon,
Perry and Schuerholz."
The gil indicated is that Honesdnle
wants tdXn'Iu foot ball glory from Car
bondale by going against one of the
very weakest teams In this city. The.
High school team is not the eleven we
want to or will send to ilone.sdale. The
Carbondale Indians Is Carbondale's
representative team, and well the
Honcsdale management knows this
fact, lint If a victory could be gained
tgalnst nn eleven of C'arbondale young
sters, it would be exploited by Hones
dalers that they triumphed over Onr
bondule. The Cyclones, Swlftwind or
Brokers uiu superior to the High
school and much inferior to the In
dian". Jlonesdale should play one of
these teams Instead of the High school.
If it is afraid to meet the best team
here, as agreed, namely, the Indians.

Poor Coal Keeps Passengers Behind
The poor quality of coal which the
Delaware and Hudson company Is ob
liged to use, owing to the scarcity of
the big sIkcs of anthracite since the
strike, is causing Jots of annoyance.
The passenger schedule cannot be
maintained with any degree of satis
faction. Trains during the day are
belated In arriving in this city, and the
past few nights one of the into trains
bus been late almost an "hour. It Is
dilllcult to keep up steam with the lire
that the poor coal produces. With the
resumption of work, however, this ob
struct ion to the well-inalntalned sched
ules of tire Delaware and Hudson will
have been removed.

suspected that the cause of my trouble was kiiincv disease. They till "told me
that T had cancer of the stomach, and would die. I grew so weak that t
could not walk any more than a child a month old, and I only weighed
ninety pounds. One day my brother saw In a paper your advertb-cnieiit of

was so weak and run down that it took considerable time to build me up
again. 1 am now well, thanks to Swamp-Root, and weigh US pounds, and

and by direful trninliiK In the

shire. She was tlioruuRhly tiuiRht by
the well-Unown Briimmniliin.Prof, Dyer
H. Sanborn, and received careful atten
tion fiom her dlstinKiilshed brother,
Albert. She had a well-established
reputation for literary ability before
her discovery of Christian Science. In
childhood she thought In rhythm, and
verslllcatloa (lowed from her p?n as
readily as the torrents Mow I'rom the
mountain brook. Her prose and poetic
compositions were eagerly read, and
some or fier writings, published In a
book of poems tea years before her dis
covery of Christian Science, are now
round In our public libraries. Her
writings were much sought by some of
the lending magazines of the cunntry.
and she declined tin editorial position
uirured by Albert Case, editor ol' the
Odd Fellows' magazine, at an annual
salary of three thousand dollars.
.Mis. Kddy. from earliest childhood,
wns deeply Interested in the subject of
religion. She was early baptised Into
the church and became an ardent num
ber. As a. child she listened eagerly to
discussions on religion between her
lalher and the visiting clergymen who
frequented their hospitable home.
When ullllcted wllh a fcver. her mother
turned her daughter's thought to Clod
In prayer. Itellef came through her
earnest petitions, and I'rom that mo
ment to tho hour the thought ol' Hod
and His helpfulness to man has con
stantly abided with her.
In isi;ti .Mrs. Kddy received an Injury
f 10111 a severe fall upon the Icy curb
ing which was pronounced beyond all
earihly help. In her dying hour, as she
supposed, she turned her thought whol
ly lo the Divine Helper. A wondrous
iilumiuutlou dawned upon her expect
ant vision, and sle arose restored to
health and strength. She proved Hie
discovery to bu iJod-glven by healing
the lame and the blind and by raising
the illng. Having round the means
whereby Christ .testis and Ills disciples
wrought their benellcent works, she
earnestly labored lo give her discovery
to all mankind. She wrote the tcM
book 11I' the denomination, founded the
Massachusetts .Mciapliyslc.il college, es
tablished the church and lis Publica

Those who have followed her closely
have observed her whole-hearted anil
entire devotion to the cause entrusted
to her care. She gives no lime for so

waking hours Is devoted to the service
of Hod and man. She Is honored and
beloved In her own city for her Interest

given not only to her church, but tu

The Latest Addition to the Celebrat-j
ed Dining Service of the Erie Rail-
The passenger department of the Erltl
railroad has just placed in commission
between New York and Chicago a newj
dining car which, for perfection of ap-
polntment In every detail, Is probably!
without a superior on any railroad Inl
The Interior trim throughout Is hand
polished mahogany, beautifully. Inlaid
with white box. There Is an entire
absence of the ordinary carving, but at
intervals lu tho walls are niches for
potted plants, and the general effect,
heightened by the generous use of har
moniously tinted cathedral glass, is rlipi
in the extreme. The furniture corres
ponds, of course: the napery is all ot
the very best Trlsh linen, mnde to or
der; tho service of heavily plated sli
ver; eery article bearing the well
known Insignia of Jhe Erie. The cal
ls brilliantly lighted by electricity, with
gas as u reserve; has nu electric fan
at each end, and Is, In every respect,
as comfortable to ride In as a car can
be made, the solidity with which all the
parts appear to be fab welded to
gether, making the run- exception
ally free from vibration.
The kitchen, pantry, dry-air closets,
refrigerator, wlue-locker, etc., are con
structed al'ter the latest and most im
proved Ideas, and the combination of
economy of space with convenience and
comfort of operation Is simply wonder
ful, So perfect are the arrangements
