An English capitalist, in New York, ,
last week, in the interest of the Eng
lisb holders of stock of the United j
State* Steel Corporation, expressed sur
prise st the "quiesent attitude ' of the
American holders of stock in regard to
the buying of the stock in the open
market at its present depressed value
and its conversion into bonds: and he
figured out that J. P. Morgan & Co ,
in whose hands the job was placed, will
make about ten millions out of it, which
the stockholders of the concern will
Very few people have either the time
or the patience to bother with the af
fairs of corporations in which thev are
not interested, but the figures of this
one are so tremendous as to make them
of interest to all.
On the witness stand, sometime age,
Mr. Schwab stated that the aggregate
yalue of all the plants owned by the
Corporation was over a billion of dol-
H ' M krs.
Against this value, or esti mated val
ue, they ueue half a billion of bonds,
bearing six per cent, interest; and Car
negie took pay for bis plants, or his in
terest in them, in $175,000,000, of these
bonds, and be also boomed Schwab as
being a wonderful fellow.
Then about ten million shares of
•tock, the par value of which is #IOO
each, were issued and sold. About
half of this is "preferred" stock, bear
ing 7 per cent interest, and though this
interest or dividend has been paid regu
larly, the shares are now being sold in
the exchanges at 152 and one wonders
why .. u •
The other, or "common, stock, is
now paying bnt two per cent inter
est, is quoted in the exchanges at $11;
and it is said to a question wether or no
it is worth a dollar.
Quite lot of it was bought by Butler
parties at sso—then thought to be a
bargain—and now .they may lose all
If they do they will have company
all over the country and it remains to
be seen what they will do about it.
The "preferred" stock is now being
bought AQ the floors of the exchanges,
and more bonds are being issued in lien
of it, and if by this transaction the
owners of the "common" are being rob
bed, a remedy should be found for it. *

A Cause of Disease.
Mit. EDITOR*— In these times when
typhoid fever, its prevalence and causes,
form the principal topic of conversation
in our town, it is proper to call atten
tion to the polluted condition of our
, creek and the abuses to which it is com
mon. A stream is the open and natural
drain of its water-shed, but this dws
not give people the right to endanger
the lives ana health of those living be
low them by unnecessarily i*>lluting it.
Yet every old thing goes into the creek.
Here is a list of some of the things
which the writer has seen lying or float
ing in the water and for which the peo
ple in or above Bntler are responsible:
Dead chickens, turkeys, rats, .:<its, dogs,
hogs, a quarter of beef, nninlierless fixh
killed bv a local industry, boxen of de
cayed vegetables and frnit, bed-ticks
and castoff bed-clothing, garments and
shoes, etc. This is all wrong and a per
yersion of the proper uses of the stream
Those who make filth and dirt have only
themselves to blame for disease. The
bodies of dead animals shonld be bnr
ied. Cast-off shoes, clothes, etc., should
also be buried or burned. We have no
tick coming at the water company. XJAL
tn« ixwijUi. Unm, H"' »y, Zelie
nople, and Eli wood might have one
coming at us. Anyone casting a dead
animal into the creek commits u nui-
sance and shonld lie prosecuted. How
ever, Butler pedple are not alone in t'uis
carelessness, but it is common in all
towns, Yours for Cleanliness.
Antiseptics in Typhoid
If the physicians of Bntler, during
the epidemic of typhoid fever now pre
valent in their midst, will use the Dr.
Woodbridge method of combatting this
dreaded malady, as does he, they will
find that their patients will not only in
variably recover; but, also, if taken in
time the fever will abort in from ten to
twelve days, and some cases sooner.
This assertion, no doubt, will receive
the cynical smiles of those who are
skeptical. Many scientific medical
teachers assert that typhoid fever will
run a course of from six weeks to three
months, and are firm in their convic
tlons that it cannot be aborted. This,
however, like many more theories has
been proven fallacious bv the scientific
researches of Dr. Woodbridge of
We have used this treatment, accord
lug to directions, and can add our testi
mony to the fact that It jsissesses al*»r
tlve power not only in typhoid, but also
malarial fever. We have had cases re
centlv which were beyond doubt ty
phoid. which aborted within two weeks,
and made a happy recovery.
Park, Davis & Co. prepare the Wood
bridge remedies, hence we are assured
of pure and reliable drugs.
We regard the Woodbridge method
as efficacious as autitoxin is iu the den
truction of the diphtheritic micro-organ
ism. We have unbounded faith In pure
and recently made antitoxin when used
heroically. The Woodbridge treatment
is put up in small bottles, Nos. 1 and 2,
also a box containing soft capsules, No.
Begin with No. 1 by giving one tab
let every fifteen minutes for fir#t 154
hours, and In larger doses if necess try
the next 1M hours, until this and the
succeeding ~I hours. Not less than five
or six evacuations of the bowels are se
cured during each of these periods. On
the third or fourth day of treatment use
one tablet froui No. 2 every hour or
two. Nos. I and 3 formula should is
given freely at first, thou gradually re
duce the size and frequency of the dose.
The object being to so regulate them as
to allow the movements of the bowels
to become less and less frequent nntil
thev fiave been reduced to one or two
each day. About the fourth or fifth
dav of treatment, the soft, elastic cap
aufes should lie given. One cajxnilo to
la) given every three or four hours, al
tcvMrtaf with ihe tablet* During the
entire course of treatment the patients
mnst wash down the remedies by large
draughts of distilled or sterilised water.
If this treatment is begun early and
assiduously adhered to no other remedy
will be required, as the patients will re
cover. A. V. CUNNINGHAM, M i>.
This is not a proprietary medicine
the formula being a gift by Dr. Wood
bridge to the world. It can be had al

Your eyes art worth more than your
dollars. In eye service cost is a second
ary consideration, yet extravagance is
unnecessary if you "come to us. Many
suffer from headache, nervousness and
dizziness who do not suspect the cause.
Sixty per cent of these troubles come
from defective eyes. If yon have any
trouble come and see us. We will tell
you after examining your eyes if you
have any of these troubles and where
the trouble is located, without asking a
question. It is better to come now than
to spend hundreds of dollars after you
have lost your sight. Our examination
is scientific, careful and thorough.
Mr. Dan McGrady, who lives two
miles from Fenelton. Pa..Butler county,
says: "I have always been bothered
with my eyes bnt never fonnd any one
that could fit me with glasses. I got so
I could not read with any comfort or
for only a few minutes at a time. Two
weeks ago I called on Mr. and Mrs. Ma
haffey and Miss Miller at Butler and
had my eyes examined and was soon
made to see at a distance perfectly, also
to see to read the finest print with per
fect ease. I have tried my glasses and
can cheerfully recommend these eye
specialists to any one who has trouble
with his or her eyes.

A Theory of His Else and
The word "kicker" la no more slang,
but an honorable term admitted by the
lexicographer to the round table of
English speech. This acceptance of the
word proves that there was a real need
for it; that a certain class of people had
no word in the English language to
fitly designate them. As a class these
kickers must be as modern as the word
which describes them. They are in ef
fect a new product of our latest civiliza
tion. The word which describes the
kicker is picturesque. It suggests the
mule whose kicking is usually done out
*L f A f I \
of pum wantonness ; which kicks in sea
son and out of season, at everything or
at nothing as the case may be. The
torm kicker scarcely needs definition.
\Ve know exactly what it means, as
well as we know the chronic fault-finder
TRK RISK or TIIK KICKER.
Any one who cares to trace the rise of
the kicker will find that he keeps paoe
with the prevalent American disease,
dyspepsia. All kickers may not be
dyspeptics, but all dyspeptics are surely
ktckefs. They are everlaating lault
finders. Nothing goes right for them
in the family or in business. There ie
always a dead flyMn their ointment. It
is a miserable condition for the dyspep
tic and his friends. Ho really cau't lielp
tiimself. His nerves ore strained to the
Imlt of endurance. Ills ears are like
megaphones magnifying every little
sound to the shock of thunder. Ilia
eyes lose sense of perspective and be

suspicious, jealous, unreasonable and
obstinate ; and all these things are only
symptoms of the disease which Is starv
ing and weakening the entire nervous
system and reaching out toward heart,
liver, lungs, kidneys and other organs.

O. S. Copenhaver, Esq., of Mount
Union, Huntingdon Co., Pa. (Box aaa),
writes: "About twelve years ago I was
suddenly taken with a pain in the pit
of the stomach which was ao violent I
could not walk straight. It would grow
more severe until it caused waterbrash
and vomiting of a slimy, yellow water.
I consulted a physician and he told me
I had a form of dyspepsia and treated
me for about six months with but little
benefit. I still kept getting so weak I
could scarcely wait. I then tried an
other physician and he told me my liver
was out of order and that I had indiges
tion. He gave me a treatment ana I
Sot some better, but only for a short
me. I then tried another one who
aaid I had chronic indigestion, ulcera
tion of the lining of the Kornacn, torpid
liver and kidney affection. He treated
tnr for more tnan a year and I felt
much better but it did not last. X then
took to using eereral widely advertised
pateut medicines, but received no mora
than temporary relief while using. I
then tried Dr. Plerce'a medicines, using
his 1 Golden Medical Discovery,' 'Ft
vorite Prescription' and the 'Pleasant
Pelleta' and in two months' time I was
feeling better than I had for years be
fore. I can truthfully aay Dr. Pierce's
medicines did me more good than any I
bad ever taken.**
