Butcher Clemo gave tho residents
of Waymart a frco circus last Friday
afternoon which proved very Interest
ing before tho last act. Mr. Clemo
had been out In tho country and
purchased a very vicious bull which
acted tho part of a wild buffalo In tho
streets of Waymart. Mr. Mills, who
Is a resident of tho latter place, has
In his possession a largo, vicious
bull dog, who on getting his optics
on tho butcher and buffalo, started
in to give tho residents along Main
street a circus free of charge. Mr.
Mills' entreaties with tho dog wore
all in vain as he made a rush at the
bull who In turn stood his ground
while tho butcher gave up possession
of tho bull and climbed over a nearby
fence betting at the same time mat:
tho bull would make mince meat of
tho dog In a short time, while at tho
same time Mr. Mills across the
streot was betting his last dollar on
the verocity of his dog to win out.
For tho first twenty minutes tho bull
seemed to have the advantage of tho
fight, but In the next ten minutes tho
bull had lost his wind while the dog
seemed fresh as ever which soon end
ed tho fight in favor of the dog as he
soon got the bull dog grip on the
bull's nose and floored him and held
his hold until tho bull was shackled
and time was called. The bull was

LOOK OUT FOR HIM!
There is one smooth-talking swin
dler who should give Sidney, 'N. Y.,
a wide berth in the future. He
called at numerous houses in that
village and after asking if they had
a carpet sweeper, requested permis
sion to examine it. Many of tho la
dles granted the request, and of
course upon examination stated that
there was something wrong witn tne
machine and asked permission to fix
it as the manufacturers desired to
keep them in repair and good work
ing order so that they mignt compete
with the vacuum cleaners. Where
the permission was given to make tho
so-called necessary repairs, that Is
the last the housewife has seen of tho
machine or the smooth talker. Just
now there are a number of Sidney
ladles who have resigned the use of
tho broom to clean up their carpets.

VERDICT BY JURY,
Hancock Man Hns Difficulty With

Agreement Settled in Dela
wuro County Court Tuesday.
A verdict of $170 was brought in
by the jury Tuesday in tho Delaware
county court In tho action brought
by William H. Appley, of Hancock,
against Lafayette Denlo, of Equin
unk, to recover on an alleged part
The men had been working to
gether on a lumber job at Equinunk
and last June settled their accounts.
Appley claims that they fixed the
value of the standing timber at $200
and agreed on a price of two cents a
foot for 34,000 feet of small timber
which had been cut. This would
mako tho value of the timber $680.
Appley alleged that in making tho
settlement a mistake was mado In
figuring and he was paid only $170
by Denlo for his share of this tim
ber instead of $340. Ho claimed bo
discovered tho mistake next day, but
Denlo refused to rectify It.
Denio claimed that the agreement
made was that Appley was to re
ceive only $170 and that there had
been no mistake in figuring. The
jury brought in a verdict for Appley
for $170, tho amount sued for.

THE OPEN WINDOW.
A medical inspector of the Phila
delphia public schools, with tho co
operation of teachers and parents,
recently mado an experiment to de
termine the value of cold fresh air
in school rooms, which was reported
in tho American Journal of Public
Health. He opened tho windows at
top and bottom, and kept them open
throughout the winter. The room
was shut off from tho heating plant
of tho building except on the oc
casional days whon the temperature
foil below forty-flvo degrees; but tho
children of course wore extra wraps
and had frequent drills and exer
cises. Week by week during tho fall and
winter and spring this physician
weighed and examined the pupils,
watched their study and their play,
and compared their progress in
health and scholarship with that of
pupils In another room of tho same
building. In that other room, tho
pupils were of tho same grade, and
of about tho samo number, but tho
room was heated and ventilated ac
cording to the usual methods. Tho
pupils in both rooms wore normal
healthy children from tho same kind
of homes, so that tho test was as
fair, accurate and searching as pos
At tho end the Inspector found
that tho pupils in tho open window
room had gained In weight on an
average, moro than twice as much
as those in tho warm air room. Tho
pupils in tho open room kept wholly
freo from colds, and wore much
moro regular in attendance than tho
others. They wero also moro alort,
freo from day-dreaming, quicker to
learn, needed less rovlew work and
wero better behaved. In health and
happiness, in development both of
mind and body, the children of tho
room with open windows had a clear
advantage over the others.

Tho following article is taken
from the New York Sun of Tuesday,
May 27, and shows how the new in
come tax law will affect the railways
of the country by adding a huge
Tho proposed income tax law will
impose an additional burden of
$C, 500, 000 a year on the railroads
of the country.
Of this amount, between $3,000,-
000 and $3,500,000 a year will have
to be paid by the railroads on bonds
issued by them with the understand
ing that the interest Is to be paid
freo of any tax collected at the
Another $3,000,000 will be drawn
from the railroads on account of
double taxation features in the bill,
which do not appear In the present
corporation tax law.
These facts wero disclosed this
week in a brief by Walker D. Hines
on behalf of twenty-two of tho big
railroads of the country with tho
sub-committee of the Senate Finance
Committee, which is considering the
Income tax bill.
The brief warns Congress that the
tendency of pronounced and con
tinuing Increases in taxes upon tho
railroads is a matter of grave con
cern to the people of the United
States. It shows that the taxes per
mile of line on the railways of tho
United States have increased since
1900 by 74 per cent, and that the
ratio of taxes to net operating rev
enues has jumped In the same period
from 9.20 to 12. 3C per cent.
Effect on Rnilrond Credit.
" The cumulative effect of the in
come tax imposed on the railroad
companies," says the brief, "even
tually will make Itself felt In tho
matter of railroad credit and then
will have its effect on impairing tho
development and improvement of
One of the features of tho pending
bill to which tho railroads object
particularly is that which imposed' a
tax upon dividends received by hold
ing companies from other corpora
tions notwithstanding that the tax
already has been paid once by tho
Tho railroads contend that this Is
double taxation and imposes a bur
den on them which does not appear
under the present corporation tax
law and which does not fall on In

edged frankly that the purpose of
this additional burden on corpora
tions is to discourage tho formation

They contend that a railroad com

corporations is obliged to adopt this
course to uniry and extend its sys

pleaded the attorney late Into tho
night, " make It even a term In the

For several weeks past Pell, the

selling Hokara, the skin healer that
has won so many friends in Hones

all minor skin troubles, such as pim

scalp, complexion blemishes, Itching
feet, piles, etc., but also the worst
sores, ulcers, or even chronic
eczema and salt rheum. There has
