In March a representative of Welt
rner & Co., New York, visited the bus
iness people of Lewistown with a gen
erous offer, viz., to furnish a Dottle of
their writing ink and a copy of a "bus
iness and directory of Huntingdon,
Mifllin, Blair and Cambria counties,"
and also to insert the name of the pur
chaser iu the "directory" in black face
type, all for the sum of one dollar. Over
eighty persons here accepted this bargain-counter
offer. The ink and direc
tory were delivered last week. The di
rectory is not what It purported to be.
Instead of a general list of the business
and professional people of the counties
named, it includes only the towns of
Tyrone, Huntingdon, Lewistown, Al
toona and Gallitzin, but to give the
book a fair size each of these towns is
given in It five times. It Is called the

Nearly enough placed end to end to

remedy can boast such a record of ser
vices to humanity in curing stomach
and bowel complaints and the many
other ailments and accidents constant-

Perry Davis'. Beware of Imitations.

' "When the twenty-hour traiu starts
cm June 12, between New York and
Cblces It will be a twenty-hour run
and "Est S) bit monk That train will
beruiltke clock work," a passenger
oflckJ. oine renntylrania llnea said
Moniiy- The purpose of the Pennayl-
g: i,'J3rl5 Y 01 w th ncw yer,
advance, oj that no foreseeable eyent
can occur to prevent the Pennsylvania
special making its long fast rva on the
schedule time. , '
In order to save time the train will
not ston at Broad street station, Phila
delphia, but Instead will be run
through to Germantown Junction and
there take Philadelphia passengers. It
will pass directly from the New York
division near the Philadelphia zoolo
gical eardens to the main tracks. The
run to that city will be made without
a stop. The eighty-four miles Ix-tween
Jersey City and Germantown Junction
will le made in ninety-one minutes,
The 110 miles to Harrisburg will be
made in 126 minutes. Leaving Harris
burg at 5:55 the run of 1H2 miles to Al
toona will be made in K" minutes.
Notwithstanding the heavy grades In
crossing the mountains between Al
toona and Cresson, the run to Pittsburg
of 117 miles will be made in 150
minutes, or two hours ami a half.
The fast running of this train is not
shown by the average schedule, but In
the bursts of speed at the right places,
to compensate for the grades that re
main on the road. Between Harrisburg
and Altoona there will be some fancy
running, and the same will be witness
ed on the four-track system between
Allegheny and Rochester. A speed of
fully eighty miles an hour is likely to
be of fniiuent occurrence.
Rules for Diet.
Eat when you are hungry.
Drink when you are thirsty.
Eat enough and then stop.
Eat what your appetite calls for.
Train your appetite rfiul stomach
by eating the greatest possible variety.
You are not a shirk; why should you
let your stomach become one ? Many
foods are uot liked the first time they
are tasted, such as oysters, hence, un-
you try a thing severnl times, you
do not know whether you like it or not.
Hence, never say you dislike a thing
until you have eaten of It three times.
6. Regulate the comparison of your
food by the work you do, using strong
food when you are doing hard work,
lighter food when sedentary.
7. Don't let your doctor attempt to
regulate your diet by his own stomach.
Beware of the diet crank. All be
yond this is foolishness and vexation
of the stomach.
How to b Miacrablo.
If you wish to be miserable sit down
and Imagine you are worse off than
any one else.
Compare your circumstances iu life
with thse of your wealthy neighbor
and wish you were in his place.
Forget all your blessings and re
member all your trials.
Dou't thank any oue who does you
a kind deed, but blame him for uot do
If there are any poor and suffering
about you, dou't lift a finger to help
them, but let some oue else look after
Grumble about the weather and
think you could make it better.
Neyer speak a kind word to a child
but forget that you were one yourself.
Never smile if you can help It, but
frown on every one you meet.
Don't feel obliged to work, but con
sider that the world owes you a living.
Choose for your associates those who
are as near like yourself as possible
and how much sunshine you can
keep out of other people's lives.
If you follow strictly all these rules,
you will surely be miserable yourself
and help to make other people so.
