Evans City was the scene of a terrible
accident last Thursday aftercoon, wbi.h
resulted in tbe death of Mrs. Alfred Cook
son of Cranberry twp. and her son. aged
thirteen years. Cookson and her * n
came driving into town by the n aJ.
in a sleigh. She ,<>T gome freight cars
mo ving on the railroad track and stopped
her horse, then the track seeming clear she
drove >m, but it happened that the car - -the
sa *" pass were part of a freight train being
8 a itched upon one track, while the balance
of tho train kept on moving backwards
upon another. These cars she did not
sje on account of a freight car standing r.n
a switch and the train truck them just as
the sleigh was in the middle of the track.
and she was thrown upon the track and
instantly Killed, and her sou's legs were
thrown across one rail and crushed, and he
died a few hcurs after.
The bodies were taken to an undertak
ers, and an inquest was held by Coroner
Graham and a jury of six; tbe verdict being
tnat Airs. Cookson and her <n caine to
their deaths by beine run over by the ours
of the P. & W. R. R. at the crossing by
ihe backing of a freight train without
proper warning.
Mrs. Cookson was an estimable woman,
a daughter of John Gearing, of Cranberry
twp. Her husband became temporarily
insane when he learned of her sad death,
and worse results were feared when be
learned of his son's death.
Some days ago Mr. Jacob Albert of

and on Saturday last Mrs.Albert Used it by
mistake for soda or baking powder in mak
ing some cakes. The children ate ol the
caKee that evening, and became violently
ill, and vomiteu freely. Then a physician
Wits called, who prescribed fur theui ana
"ttiey will all recover—but it was a close
call. When people are poisoned by ar-etiic
tbe thing to do is to drink freely ol milk,
and swallow raw egtfs, as both liiitK <*uu
eggs absorb ihe poison; and then an emetic
should follow to get it all out of the
stomach. Mustard,nati-wutcr. alum-wale,
or lamp oil will make a person vomit, and

Cannot always be cured, but a
properly fitting Truss will do
more toward curing you than any
thing else. A small rupture is
more dangerous than a lage one
: but is more readily held in place.
Quite a number of persons who
have been fitted by us have been
entirely cured, but this is not al
ways the case. The sooner we
have them visit us after finding
they are ruptured the more hope
of a complete cure. We make a
specialty of Trusses for both
ladies and gentlemen, and give di
rections for private measurement
for the former. All cases consid
ered strictly private. Buying
Trusses by mail from some person
who says he can cure you is on a
paralell with the number of cures
there are for consumption. If you
nave had trouble in being fitted
elescwhere let us try what we can
do lor you.

You know as well as we do that it is a troublesome
job. Its much easier to count money than goods
We do not want to count out stock, but we want it
turned into cash. We have sharpened our ax and
are cutting prices closer than you ever saw, or drtamed
of. We want no profit this month, cost is ail we care
about getting. Won't lie to you by saying that we
will sell below cost, because we won't At oar figures
they are about one-half what you pay regular—isn't
that enough?
Now is your chance to get a bargain in MEN'S,

There is a clique of advertisers wbo are continually fooling the people.
They have tooled them ODce too often with a pretense to give something
for nothing. You may fool some of the people all the time—and all of the
people some of the time, but you can't fool all the people all the time. In
looking over the advertisement* in the papers nowaday, I find I have lost
my laurels. Now I will tell you the truth. Yon will see hundreds of ench
baits fluag out for Buckers to bite at, such as, "We can save you 25 |er
cent by trading with us," aud some even no so far as to say 50 per cent.
Men's fine suits worth $25.00 for only $9 99 Pants worth $8 00 only $3 99,
Bankrupt Sales, Sheriff 8»les, Assignees Sale, Ac. Now we ask yon can
didly. Can these concerns doing business at fabulous expense, sacrifice
profits as a great many advertise to do f Are they as liberal as they propose
to be ? We answer no. The enormous sums required to meet current ex
penses must be met by liberal and in most cases by heavy margins. Profitß
they must have and trade tbey must get or sink in the whirlpool they have
created by their own bands There is no alternative, get the profit and get
the trade, but how ? In no other war than working on the weak minds of
the people by flaming adveitisements. They boldly and shamelessly claim
to actually give the aear people $3 00 in value for one invested. Such un
principled actions are becoming not only ilresome, but positively dangerous
to the welfare and interest of the buying public. On careful inspection you
will find these $25.00 suits reduced to only $9 99 are dear at eight dollars.
I saw an ad stating men's fine worsted suits reduced from SIO.OO to $6..00
I called to see them aud found our $3.75 cotton suit. When we offer you
a suit for SIO.OO that is all it is worth or ever was worth Wo just give
you one dollar's worth of goods for 100 cents
You want to see our immense stock of overcoats and suits for men,
boys and children. Hats and caps in endless variety, shirts, collars and
cuffs, and ties, any and every style to suit even the most fastidious; under
wear, hosiery, overalls, jackets, gloves, mittens, umbrellas, suspenders, in
fact anything in the furnishing line; also a fine line of ladies and gents gold
and silver watches, chains, charms, pins, rings, collar and cuff buttons, scarf
pins, initial pins, all at the very lowest cash prices. All we ask is an in
npection of our goods and prices bef ire purchasing. We have always done
you good and feel confident we can do so again. To those who have been
trading with us, we tender our most heaitfelt thanks, and to those wbo
never have, we would say, try us once and you will never regret :t.
