Thnt Number Sent Lists to The Tri
Ten more lists of words were received
at The Tribune olllce yesterday which
were In accordance with the rules of
Its Junior Educational Contest. There
were other lists that also reached the
ofllce, bill they were sent buck to their
malceis because they deviated In some
Important particular from the Instruc
tions printed. One of the rules says:
"Presents will be given to the boys or
girls, whose parents or guardians are
subscribers to The Tribune, building
the largest number of words out of the
letters contained In "The Home Paper.' "
This condition Is easily met. If an .as
pirant for ii Christmas present really
believes he stands a show to win It by
having a good list of words he should
be able to Induce his parents or guardi
ans to so act as to place his eligibility
Veslordny'H contributions raised the
total number of llsls received to sixty
live, which Is nearly six a day since the
contest opened. Very few if any of this
number have gotten all the words that
can be gathered under the rules, so a
favorable opportunity is open to any
one to carry away some lino cash prizes.

ground that there was no desertion.
She does not, seemingly, care to llvo

At the time of the marriage the hus

boarding house for ono day, It .was
agreed that they should live with their
respective parents until the husband
secured employment. He -went to live
with his mother on Hickory street,
South Scrnnton, and she went to the
home of her1 mother In West Seranton.
Three mouths later, when be got a
steady job. he waited upon her and
asked her to join him at bis mother's
home, which she did. Two months
later, lie again got out of work. One
day while they were at his mother's
house, his brother-in-law ran over from
across the street where he lived, to ask
them If they knew where he could get
a servant girl. Noll jocosely said:
"Won't I do-.' I'm looking for a job,"
and then, after a brief pause, turned to
his wife and. not quite so jocosely, sug

Just what happened after this is In

return to him, , She says they had a

To Keep Well.
It Is easy to keep well If wo would
only observe each day a few simple
rules ot health.
The nil Important thing Is to keep
the stomach right and to do this It Is
not necessary to diet or to follow a sot
rule or bill of faro. Such pampering
simply nialtes a capricious appetite and
a feeling- that certain favorite articles
of food must be avoided.
Prof. Wlechold gives pretty good ad
vice on tills subject! he says! "I am
(IS years old and have never had a
serious Illness, and at the same time
my life has been largely an Indoor one,
but I early discovered that tho way
to keep healthy was to keep a healthy
stomach, not by eating bran crackers or
dieting oC any sort! on the contrary
I always eat what my appetite craves,
but dally for the past eight yours I
have made It a practice to take one
or two of Htuurl's Dyspepsia Tablets
after each meal and I attribute my ro
bust health for a man of my age to

I honestly believe the habit of taking
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after meals
Is the real health habit, because their
use brings health to the sick and ailing
and preserves health to the well and

Men Who Accidentally Shot Myers
Have Probably Skipped.
Tony Jordan and Tony Ambrosa, the
two young men who were llrlng at a
target near which Harry Myers passed
when he was fatally shot last Sunday
did not surrender yesterday to the
police as It was expecteil they would
and efforts to locate them were unsuc
cessful. Their friends believe that they
have left the city because of the fear
that a serious charge will be lodged
against them. As the shooting appears
to have been purely accidental It is
not believed that they would be held
on any more serious charge than that
of discharging fire-arms.
