—That the men who purchased the old
Brady's Bend iron property mean business
there seems to be no donbt, and also that
it will be to their interest to have a short
line of railroad to oonnect with the lakes
goes without saying. They already have a
P*rtJ of sarveyera at work seeking the best
roato from Brady's Bend to the P. S. A L.
E, and, according to an article we copy
from the East Brady Beview, intend going
to work as soon as the route Is detei mined
upon. From a glance at the map we
would judge that the surveyors would have
a choice of three routes it—one to Hilliards

or Gomersol and one to the headwaters of
the Connoquenessing and thence down to
the railroad.
—The drawing effect ot the prospect of a
free drink was ludicrously illustrated at a
public sale in tbe eastern part of the State
the other day. John >'ace, who owns a
large distillery, had advertised a pnblic
Mle of stock. A rumor was circulated that
there would be free whiskey from bis dis
tillery. Three thousand people wore at
the sale and 617 teams were counted tied
to tbe fence. There was no whiskey, how
ever. Mr. Nace said he ran his distillery
to make money, not to give away its pro
duct, and a large part of that crowd of
three thousand thirsty individuals drifted
drearily homeward with that tired feeling
which comes of disappointed hopes of a
free drink.

—The immensity of the Pennsylvania

Every minute there are 19 tons of coal,
170,000 gallons of water and 11 gallons of

employes, and to pay them every hour
takes a block of silver Bxßx2o inches. The
receipts of the Penn'a Co. last year run
over $l3O 000,000.
—As warm weather will soon ua here a
timely caution may not be out of place.
There are 2,000,000 sweat pores and nine
miles of prespiration pores in the human
body. These figures are given by some
one who has made a count, and may be ac
cepted as approximately correct. They
are sufficient, anyway, to show that it is a
(earful thing tor a fellow to exert himself
to the sweating point.

man ha*, at some time in his newspaper
experience, met the man who takeß more

blow oat an electric light at the hotel,tried
to light bis segar on it, put a nickle in the

—An exchai go «ound* warning to the
farmers as follows: If any farmer in this
section has produced samples of grain from
the World's Fair agriculture building be
will do well to burn it forthwith. It has
been iound that the whole exhibit has
been attacked by the weevil, a pest whose
larva is a worm that barrows into the
grain, and has done enormons damage to
the crops in Southwestern Russia and in
India, whence, doubtless, it was brought
to the World's Fair. It is stated that
thousands of samples bare been carried
from the agriculture building; and there is
presumably not a corner of the United
States where the pest has not been carried
—The new book issued by the State on
titled "Pennsylvania at Gettysburg" is go
>ug to be —in fact is—a very valuable vol
ume from a historical standpoint. The
book is handsomely printed and contains
pictures by the photogravure process of
every monument erected by Pennsylvania
on the famous battle-field, together with a
portrait of General Meade and a group
picture ot the Battlefield Memorial Com
mission, which has so ably performed its
work. Perhaps the leading leature of the
book is the valuable historical data con
tained in the speeches made at the dedica
tion of the various monuments. Every
speech was made by some one who par
ticipated in the fight, and they have thus
preserved in print facts and statements
that gives the true story of the part Penn
fylvania played in tne great struggle.

An Interest ng Lecture,
The Rev. J. L Smith, of Pittsburg,
lectured in the English Lutheran Church
on Tuesday evening last, on the subject of
"The Pilgrim Fathers." He told the
history of Ihese fore-fathers who landed on
Plymouth Rock, December 25. 1620. in an'
interesting and eloquent manner, the
cause ol their leaving the old eojntry,
their perils at sea in the ship Mayflower,
their ti ials after the landing on the bleak
and rocky shores of New E iglamt, theu in
habited by the ludiaus only, their rWigi
oUB faith, perseverance ana sufferings,
were all brought to view by the lec urer.
From these Pilgrim Fathers we date the
very origin of freedom in religions belief in
this country as wall as the foundation of
our free institutions. The lesson sought to
be enforced in tho lecture was the great
debt our present great Republic of thb
I'nited States owes to the Pilgrim
Fathers It would interest any audience
ami many here who heard it could listen
to it again with pleahure and profit The
lecturer was introduced to the audience b\
Rev. E. Smith, the pastor of the church

| 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. Al! 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
have had trouble in being fitted
elesewhcre let us try what we can
do for you.
