I had announced my name as a candi
date for the Republican nomination for
Clerk of Courts, subject to the primary
to be held June let, this year; but find
ing it impossible, under the circum
stances, to make the canvass I would
desire to make at this time I have decid
ed to withdraw my name.
I also thank my friends who have
given me the assurance of their support.
On Friday the general appropriation
bill, carrying fifteen millions, was intro
duced in tho House.
Gov. Stone vetoed the resolution pro
viding for this appointment of nine
commissioners to,draft and report to the
Legislature of 19015 a general corpora
tion law to take the place of the act of
1874 and its supplements. Gov. Stone
says it would result in confusion. He
also vetoed a bill providing a pension of
sl2 a month for Philip L. Brassing,
a former member of the National Guard.
The bill authorizing boroughs to pro
vide a supply of water for public use
either by the erection of water works or
by contract with persons or corporations
authorized to supply water within the

On Monday an army of ten-thousand
miners from the Anthracite coal region
were threatening to march upon Harris
burg: but a committee of miners con
sisting of John Fahy, president of dis
trict No. 9, United Mine Workers of
America; John Williams, John P.
Karney, Thomas J. Richards and T. J.
Lewellyn, held a conference with Sena
tor Snyder of Chester that night in re
gard to the mining bills that are now in
the senate committee on mines and min
ing. Mr. Snyder, by virtue of his po
sition as president pro tempore of the
senate, is an ex officio member of the
committee. The conference was held
behind closed doors, and a fits conclusion
Mr. Fahy said the committee had a
"very satisfactory interview and wai
highly pleased.'' and the invasion was
temporarily postponed.
The Guflfy ballot bill was killed in the
House yesterday. Our two members
voted against it.
The Superior Court.
A bill retiring invalid or incapacitat
ed judges has passed both Houses of
the Legislature, and is now in Governor
Stone's hands. It provides that judges
who become incapable of performing
their duties, mav be retired by a com
mission appointed for that purpose, and
receive half pay for the balance of the
term for which they were elected; and
the enactment of the bill was probably
due to the fact that Justice Mitchell of
the Superior Court has been on the sick
list for over a year; and that Justice
Smith's financial troubles have (as re
ported) affected his mind.
When word of the passage of the bill
was received in Butler, several flays
ago, H. H. Goucher, Esq. of the Butler
Bar, made application for one of the
prospective vacancies, and secured the
signatures of some sixty members of the
Bar to a recommendation.of himself for
The main duty of the Judges of the
Superior Court is to review the legal
points raised in the trial of cases in
county courts, when the decisions on
such points are excepted to, and the
cases appealed to them for revision; and
as Mr. Goucher is a close student of the
law, a lawyer of some twenty-five
years experience, and a man of unim
peachable moral character and integri
ty; and as this county has never been
represented on either the Supreme or
Superior Bunches, we think Mr. Gouch
er's application should receive the ser
ious consideration of those controlling
the appointment.
The Stock Flurry.
While McKinley was making econo
my speeches down south last week, eve
ry "bucket shop" in every town, both

During the week fifteen million (-.lures

Why is
Shoe Store
So Popular?
First. He keeps a strictly up
to-date shoe store, always study
ing the wants of his customers,
trying to please them both in style
ant' .rije.
Second. While his styles are
the very latest, such as a good
dresser would want, his prices are
very moderate,and you don't have
to have all kinds of money to buy
shoes at Miller's.
Third. He controls and sells
the best lines of Men's and I.adies'
Shoes in the U. 6., namely —for
Men, the ''Walkover" and "Doug
lass," union-made shoes; and for
Ladies the "Delsarte" for $3.50,
lhe"Herrick" for $2 50 and $3 00
and Cincinnati goods for $2,52.25,
$2.50 and $3.00.
Fourth. He gives special at
tention to the selection of his
cheaper grades of shoes. Just call
in and look over his 98c line, now
stronger than ever. Men's Buff
Shoes, congress or lace, tip or
plain toe, 98c. Ladies' Shoes in
Tan and Black, heavy and light
soJes. at 98c. Misses' and Chil
dren's Tan or lilack Shoes 50c,
75c or 98c. Boys' and Youths'
Shoes in Tan or Black at 98c
DEALERS in nady made clothing
represent their wares as "Tailor nii-.de'
"custom made" &c.. but they ask the
reeular prices of ready made and the
boast is understood. But when tbey
offer to take your measure, promise to
have the clothes made for you and
charge the tailors price, they impose
upon your credulity. Whether their
misrepresentation is wilful or negligent
the result lo you is the same,
Most men want what they pay for and
are willing to pay for the superior
quality of made to measure clothes
Our garments are cut and made to your
measure in our own workshop in But
ler, not by fair-tc-tniddling work
men, but by expert tailors.

Is Often a Cause of Bad Health.
That bad health and good living often
go together as cause anil effect is a prop
osition which will be accepted at once
by any practising physician. Common
sense living would demand that we ate
only when hungry and that fowl should
be chosen first for its nutritive value and
then for its palatableness. So-called
"good living" reverses these rules.
Meals are taken at stated hours without
reference to hunger or physical require
ments. If appetite is lacking, stimulat
ing cordials or liquors are often used to
induce a false appetite. Food is not
chosen with regard to its nutritive value
but for its pleasure to the palate. As a
natural result the stomach is over-loaded
with a quantity of innutritious material
and the lxxly is deprived of its due nour
ishment. Presently disease of the stom
ach and digestive and nutritive systems
begins, frequently involving heart, liver,
kidneys and other organs.

good living, and almost every man takes
advantage of the opportunity. The aver

Europe, lie lives too well. It is a sing
ular tiling to say but it is nevertheless a
fact that one of the greatest evidences of
national pros[>erlty is found in the great
army of dyspeptics which is being newly
recruited every day in the year by good
livers. The great trouble is that when
a man wakes up to the fact that his stom
ach can't be abused with impunity, the
damage is already done. He has joined
the army of dyspeptics, the people with
" weak " stomachs. He can't eat much
now without it hurts him. His stomach

Disease won't cure itself, so that it's
folly to neglect treatment thinking "it

Disease never stands still, so that every
day's delay in using the right treatment
means a worse condition.
" I was a great sufferer from dyspepsia
for over two years, and I was a complete
physical wreck," writes Mr. Preston E.
Fenstermacher, of Egypt, Lehigh Co.,
Pa. " Had many torturing, gnawing and
aching pains,—l think al>out ull that a

suffered much with constipation. I tried
many different medicines which were
recommended to cure the trouble but
these only made me worse and piy con
dition was more sluggish and weak than
before. My stomach was in such a weak
condition that the least and easiest kind
of food to digest would get sour in my
stomach and I had such a weak and de
bilitated appearance that it seemed as if
I had hardly any blood in my whole
body. Muscles were soft and flabby,
circulation poor and slow. Suffered
greatly from cold hands and feet. At
last I came across an advertisement of
Dr. Pierce's. I wrote to them for a
question list blank which I filled out
and returned to them stating my symp
toms and pains. To my great surprise I
received by return mail the best and
most substantial advice that I ever be
fore read. This advice gave me the
greatest confidence in the World's Dis-

of digestion and nutri

body is built up in nat

by food perfectly digested and assimi

are often involved with it in disease lie

cures these diseases of heart, liver, ltiugs,
kidneys and other organs, by curing the
cause of disease in the stomach and its
allied organs of digestion and nutrition.

little mere profit jw»id by less meritorious
medicines will offer a substitute for

that it is "just as good." Substitutes
are always suspicious. The only way to
