IN THEIR ELEMENT
Davles Post Inspection Was nn
Event of Importance, and Our Vet

In Their Praise of Its Brilliant
Commnnder and His Mngnlllceut
Exempllflcntlon of the Ritualistic
Wednesday night wns one of delight
for the hull lull of veterans of the Civil
war who attended the twenty-llrst an
nual Inspection of William IT. Davios'
post, No. 1ST, Department of Pennsyl
vania. Orand Army of the Itoinibllc.
O. 15. Wright was the comrade to
whom had been assigned the duty of
representing' the department Inspector
general. He Is adjutant of Clrlltln post,
of Hcrunton, and he Is conscious that
his post has but few rivals In the na
tion for equipment and eflleleney. lie
came to our city early In the afternoon
and whs In Rood form to analyze and
I'ritlclsse the exercises of our local vet
erans. Captain P. Del.acy, the Inspeetor-nt-larg'e
for this district, arrived shortly
after i o'clock, and was met at the
train by Colonel McComb and Adjutant
Wright. It Is safe to assume that the
visitors were properly cared for while
In the city, and that they were the
recipients of all the courtesies which
constitute a soldier's welcome.
The work of the evening began at R
o'clock at the post headquarters on
Salem avenue. At 7 o'clock the veter
ans began to assemble and hold their
little socials, and (111 In the time by
that happy method which was acquired
when serving their country and learn
ing to adapt themselves to exigencies
of any occasion.
Commander John McComb was In his
element and gave a masterly exhibition
of all the work, which is required of a
post at its annual Inspection. At the
conclusion of the exercises as pre
scribed by the ritual, each of the visit
ing ofllcers took occasion to comment
on what had been done, and they ex
pressed themselves In positive terms re
garding the delight which they had ex
perienced in witnessing the mustering
of recruits and In the complete render
ing of every detail of Oram! Army
business. They were specific in their
praise of Commander McComb for bis
eflieleney and skill, and for his tine
rendering of the obligation, the lecture
and the badge presentation.
The comrades were pleased to see
that their talented and zealous com
mander had made a deep Impression on
the minds or the two officers who have
been privileged to see work done In
crack posts by men of national repute.
And they feel proud that they have at
their head a soldier who Is recognized
as one of the brightest and brainiest
men among the exemplars of Frater
nity, Charity and Loyalty.

BACK TO THE MINES.
Workers in Anthracite Return to
Their Toll After Five Months'
Absence Little Work Done Owing
"Hack to the Mines" was no Joke yes
terday. It was a stern reality, but one
which the army of toilers hereabouts
atcpled Willi the most cheerful spirit
after the prolonged Idleness, uncertain
ty and. In some cases, deprivation for
Hie past five months. The only objec
tion, perhaps, was among- the erratic
mine mules. They are ready at any
time to register a kick, but they were
full of them yesterday.
Though all the miners of Carbondale
returned to their places yesterday, there
was very little work done. Hut a small
percentage, cut any coal, and it is
doubtful if there will be much coal
mined this week. This Is due to the
lack of preparedness about the mines.
The strike ending so abruptly left but
little time for the companies to get
tilings in readiness. The chambers
were in good order, but there were but
few mules available by which to move
the coal. The nuich-abused but Indis
pensable animals had not been shod.
The blacksmiths will be rushed the rest
of the week, and by Monday the mining
of coal will be well under way.
The Delaware and Hudson and the
Ontario and Western companies yes
terday started In earnest the movement
of coal which has been stored In cars in
the yards in tills city.
There was a brisk, movement by the
Delaware and Hudson company. The
yard In the northern part of the city
lias been filled with loaded cars repre
senting almost every shovelful that was
In the big storage yard In Anthracite
park. Five trains of possibly forty cars
each were despatched northward. The
additional employment of train crews
to make this big shipment is indeed
appreciable. This fact, coupled with
the return of the miners, produced a
joyful feeling, throughout the city, that
was a happy contrast to the depressed
condition that has existed since the
declaration of the strike. The new era
of feeling that has been usheied in is
manifested in various ways in every
part of Carbondale. So far as Is known
all the mine workers who sought work
were accommodated. There was .no
display of feeling against those who
elected to remain at work during- the
strike. Anyhow, there were but a
handful of non-union men at work
hereabouts during the strike.
There is additional cause for rejoice
ment in Carbondnle In the announce
ment exclusively made In The Tribune
on Wednesday of the proposed erection
of a breaker In the southern end of the
city by the Delaware and Hudson com

As compared with grains nnd vege
tables, meat furnishes the most nutri
ment In a highly concentrated form and
Is digested and assimilated more
(Illicitly than vegetables and grains.
Dr. Julius Iteminson on this subject
says: Nervous persons, people run
down In health and of low vitality
should eat meat and plenty ot It. If
the digestion Is too feeble at first It
mayjie easily corrected by the regular
use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after
each meal. Two of these excellent
tablets taken after dinner will digest
several thousand grains of meat, eggs
or other animal food In three hours,
and no matter how weak the stomach
may be, no trouble will be experienced
If n regular practice Is made of using
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets because
they supply the pepsin and diastase
necessary to perfect digestion, and ev
ery form of indigestion will be over

That large class of people who come
under the head of nervous dyspeptics
should eat plenty of meat and Insure
Its proper digestion, by the dally use
of a safe, harmless digestive medicine
like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets com
posed of the natural digestive princi
ples, pepsin, diastase, fruit acids, and
salts, which actually perform the work
of digestion. Cheap cathartic medi
cines, masquerading under the name of
dyspepsia cures are useless for indi
gestion as they have absolutely no ef
fect upon the actual digestion of .food.
Dyspepsia in all its many forum Is
simply a failure ot the stomach to di
gest food and the sensible way to solve
the riddle and cure the dyspepsia Is to
make dally use at meal time of .1
preparation like Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets, which is endorsed by the med
ical profession and known to contain
active digestive principles.

They are the best fitting garment beneath
