now of the Second ward of this city.
The resignation was acted upon by
the board, and after Its acceptance the
directors elected Peter Ilealey, his
brother, as his successor.
Mr. Ilealey held the oilier of school
director of IV 1 1 township for several
terms and proved his ellleiciicy In

Mr. Henley's choice of becoming a
citizen of Carbondalo Will be welcomed,
as his career In business, since assum

pressed those who huve had relations
with him. J I is ac(UMlntanct's and
,'ricndships here are indeed numerous,
find though his suffrage was held in
Kell township, tlie feeling towards him
has always been the same that is cher

on Park Place.

Owen niul Charles Tlmmous Become
Owners of the Imperial.
The Iinetuial restaurant on North
.Alain street, which until compelled to
close by. reason of tilt coal strike, was
conducted by .lames Thompson, Jr.,
was yesterday transferred to the Tlm
inons brothers Owen and Charles of
South Main stleet.
The transfer was formally niiide
yesterday by ex-Select Councilman
lames Thompson, who owned the stock,
fixtures, etc. The restaurant will be
opened under Its new management
within ii few days. Charles Tlmnions,
the younger of the new proprietors, has
had ample experience In the restau
rant business to assure the proper
iniinngement of a llrstA'lass dining
place so essential to the town, lie has
been employed for several years among
large lesiatiranls In Philadelphia, and
Atlantic City, and leturned but recent
ly from the latter place. His brother
has also had some experience as a
chef. Martin Connor, who was former
ly employed at the Imperial, and who
has had several years experience In the
restaurants of the town will be back
at tills restaurant when It re.opens.
Since the closing uf the Imperial
weeks ago, Carbondale has been with
out tile only exclusively eating house It
boasted of, and the only, one which
kept open all night.
As a consequence those who reached
the town late at night or on the early
morning trains and who sought a lunch,
besides others whose work kept them
awake until the late hours, were forced
to ge to sleep hungry. Now that this
backward Indication of the town's
progress lias bum removed It will be a

Miss Hunter was a native of Hones

years ago. Most of her life was spent
between this city and Archbald. After
her graduation from Emergency hos

Drummers Who Didn't Visit Here
During Strike Suffer Now.
More than a few drummers who
crossed Carbondale off their traveling
list during the coal strike are regretting
now that they were not at least a bit
more sociable and called here, if only
to say "howdy" to their customers In
this city. On the other hand, the sales
men who were faithful in their visits
and came, Irrespective of whether they
got an order or weie turned away, are
reaping a harvest through the error of
business judgment of the other lads.
When the inllux of drummers com
menced this week and the traveling
men got among their customers, those
of them who kept away during the
strike were given a look by merchants
which was more effective than if they
were told, through a Press club mega
phone, to go away back and sit down.
They weren't taken to the arms of the
mrechants and given a bear-like, hug
of joy, but were Informed, in numer
ous instances, that there was nothing
doing n their line. These customers
took umbrage at the lack of interest
these salesmen displayed and some
looked upon it as a lack of courtesy,
thus shunning them while there was a
depression and rushing back on almost-
the first train when prosperity seemed
at hand. The drummers who hi me,
whether or not there was anything
doing, were remembered and leeched,
beside their own order, the one that
ordinarily would go to the other. It
was an application of "it's an III wind,"
Drummers continue to come to town
Mrs. Walter Nye Joins Her Husband
Who Is Located in the West.
Mis. Walter Nye, of Darte avenue,
left yesteiday afternoon for Gleudive,
Montana, where she will rejoin her
husband who left here several months
ago to accept a position as train des
patcher on the Northern Pacific rail
road. Mi', and Mrs. Nye will make
their home In Montana.
Mr. Nye was train despatcber under
the Delaware and Hudson company lu
tills city until several months ago,
when he went West. His present posi
tion as despatcber Is somewhat ad
vanced over the one he held here, and
there are exceptional opportunities for
continued advancement. These facts
and the fact that the climate seems
more adapted to his physical comfort
induced him to remain in Montana.
Mr. and Mrs. Nye were In the midst
of a wide elide of friends In Carbon
dale who valued their companionship.
Though there are keen regrets over
their withdrawal, the best wishes ac
company them across the continent to
their new home.
Taken Dangerously 111 Here.
Michael Vincent, of Patterson, N. J.
who came here about two months ago
to visit his sister, Mrs. Patrick Shanon,
on Canaan street, and to seek an Im
provement In his physical condition,
has suffered a bad change and is
dangerously III. Two of Mr. Vincent's
sons were summoned to Carbondale
this week and are now at his bedside.
They are Prof. A. G. Vincent, a
musician of New York city, and Thomas
C. Vincent, of St. Louis, Mo.
If the patient's condition permits, he
will be taken to his home in Paterson,
next week. There is little prospect of
bis ultimate recovery owing to ad
vanced age, being over 70 years.

told her sorrowing mother that nothing
more could be done. Maggie might dlo

telling the story. She says:
"I was aflllcted with chronic lullam

with It from my childhood. When I
was fourteen I was a helpless cripple,
unable to leave my bed nnd with my
arms and legs swollen to twice their
natural size. I often fainted nway
with the pain, frequently several times
during the day. Sometimes they thought
I was dead. The rheumatism had af
fected my heart and that was the
cause of the tainting spells. It was Im
possible for me to take any solid food
and there were days and days when
not even a spoonful of liquid would
stay on my stomach.

my father determined to huve me try

better and a faithful course with these

Union Suits for Women
Those who have worn Union Suits show their
opinion of them by buying more.
They are the best fitting garment beneath
other clothing specially adapted for wear under
this season's close-fitting skirts. They carry the
weight from tho shoulders instead of the waist
nnd are most comfortable. A Union Suit must, of
course, fit well, and accurate garments are scarce.
These are correctly shaped and true to size.
