RESULTS THAT REMAIN
Are Appreciated liy lloncsdalo Peo
ple. Thousands who suffer from back
ache and kidney complaint have tried
one remedy after another, finding
only temporary benefit. This is dis
couraging, but there is one kidney
medicine that has earned a reputa
tion for lasting results and there is
plenty of proof of its merit right here
in Honesdale. ,
Here is the testimony of one who
used Doan's Kidney Pills years ago,
and now makes her testimony even
Mrs. Jacob Smith, 230 Green
street, Honesdale, Pa., says: "Doan's
Kidney Pills, procured at A. M.
Leine's drug store, have been used
in our family and they have been ef
fective in relieving pains in the back
and other symptoms of kidney
trouble. I gave a statement for pub
lication two years ago, recommend
ing Doan's Kidney Pills and at this
tlmo I can say that I still consider
them a kidney medicine of great
Price 50c at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills the same
that Mrs. Smith had. Foster-Milburn

OUIIE RHEUMATISM WITH
EXTRACT OP OX.
Remarkable success in the treat
ment of joint rheumatism by pitui
tary body of the ox, has just been
made in a preliminary report by Dr.
Charlton Wallace and Dr. Prank S.
Child of the St. Charles Hospital for
Crippled Children, at Port Jeffer
son, L. I.
Within the past few months sev
eral kinds of joint rheumatism have
been treated with pituitary extract
at St. Charles Hospital, and the im
provement in the patients has been
noteworthy, and the method of treat
ment and the results obtained have
attracted wide attention in the medi
One of the cases was that of a
little girl, 3 years old, who was ad
mitted into the hospital when she
could not walk because of the great
pain in her joints. After the injec
tion of the extract, the child showed
Temarkablo improvement. She was
relieved entirely of all pain at the
end of thirty-one days and has re
mained free from it since. All swel
lings have disappeared, and the func
tions of the joints are normal, except
the hips, where abduction is limited,
due to muscular contraction.
Another case was that of a boy,
12 years of age. When admitted
to St. Charles he could walk only
100 feet and suffered great pain.
Upon discharge the patient had
gained 7 pounds and his general
condition had been markedly im
proved. All pain disappeared and
he could walk two miles without fa
tigue or discomfort and he could
roller skate and row a boat well.
The condition of another little pa
tient, a girl J) years old, has been
changed from fatal to favorable, ahc
marked improvement is recorded. A
boy 8 years old came in in plaster-of-paris
bandages and suffering
great pain. He is now able to run
and jump without pain and he has
gained in weight. Other children,
hopelessly crippled by rheumatism,
have, after the treatment, been so
much benefited that they now romp
and play with the other children and
suner no pain.
Several cases of grown persons are
also given in the report, all of which
have responded to the treatment,
and the physicians are greatly en
couraged in the belief that an effi
cient cure has been found for the
painful disease of joint rheumatism.

THE MAN WHO KNEW
SANTA CLAUS BEST

'Twas the night before Christmas when all through
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced through their
And Mama in her kerchief and I in my cap
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap;
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my bed to see what was the .matter.
Away to the window I fled like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash;
The moon on the breast of the new fallen pnow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer,
With a hltle old driver so lively and quick
I knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled and shouted and called them by
"Now, Dasherl now,Dancerl now,Prancer! and
On, Cometl on, Cupid! on.Donder and Blitzenl
To the top of the porch 1 To the top of the wall I
Now dash away! dash away! dash away, all!"
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly
When they meet with an obstacle mount to the sky,
So up to the housetop the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys and Saint Nicholas-too.
And then in a twinkling I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof
As I drew in my head and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in furs from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack;
His eyes how they twinkled! His dimples, how
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up in a bow,
And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face, and a little round belly
That shook when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside, of his nose
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle;
But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight,
"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night."

IN NEW YORK.

Following Operation for Stonincl:
Trouble Onco Cliniiiilon Rlile
Shot Well Known in Honcsdiile.
IHudolph Gute, a prominent citizen
of Jeffersonville, died at the Poly

New York, Monday afternoon about
3 o'clock, following an operation for
ulceration of1 the stomach. Ho was
thirty-nine years old.
Dir. Gute had been confined to his
home here for a couple weeks with
stomach trouble, and on Tuesday of
last week left for the city to have an
operation performed. Before the

tion became so serious that lie col
lapsed, and he was removed In an
ambulance direct from the train to
the Polyclinic Hospital where an op
eration was performed early Wednes
The funeral occurred on Wednes
day of last week at 2 p. m., from the
home of his brother, John U. Gute,
at Middle Village, and burial was
made in the Lutheran cemetery with
Masonic rites conducted by Valentine
Scheidell, pastmaster of Callicoon

from here to. attend the funeral were
William Knoll, William J. Durr, Wil
liam Becker, John L. Schmidt, W. J.
Grishaler and V. P. Scheidell, mem
bers of the Masonic order, and At
torney Robert B. McGinn, John and
Mr. Gute was originally from Mid
dle Village, where he was In the mon
ument business for a number of
years, with his father and succeeding
to the business. Eight years ago he
removed to Jeffersonville and built
a hnndsomo house on the lot he
bought of Chas. W. Wilfert on East
Main street, now occupied by the
Itev. H. Coenen and parents. Since
then Mr. Gute has also acquired sev
eral other properties here in which
he was still interested at the time

fert farm on the hill, the Jefferson
ville House property in this village,

tournaments, winning valuable tro
phies and prizes, and one year went
with the American crack rifle shots
to Germany. In all the indeer and

high score and average.

dolph, August, Adele, Lester, Her
bert and Walter; also one brother,
John It., of Middle Village, and two
sisters, Mrs. Jacob Hess and Mrs.
William A. Pluhr, of Brooklyn.
AVISDOM IN TWENTY-FIVE
The philosophical rat-catcher,
Charles M. Frey whose interviews
some years ago with Mayor Gaynor
gave pleasure, is now in Los Angeles,
and in a recent interview tells how
just before he started on a 1G.000
mlle trip through Eurone he called
on Mayor Gaynor and discussed phil-
osopny ana happiness. Can all the
essential knowledge, asked the may
or, be put on a five-foot shelf, as Dr.
Elliot says, or in 25 volumes, as
President Butler has stated? The
rat-catcher reflected a moment, and
then answered that all the knowledge
essential to human happiness and
progress can bo put into 25 words;
that in fact it has been done by the
seven wise men of Greece:
Solon "Know thyself."
Chilon "Consider the end."
PIttacus "Know thy opportun
ity." Bias "Most men are bad."
Perlander "There is nothing im
possible to industry."
Cleobulus "Avoid excesses."
Thales "Surety is the precursor
It does not spoil the story that
those sayings are usually quoted a
llttlo differently. Chilon is credited
with "Know thyself," and Solon with
"Nothing in excess," which would
double the advice of Cleobulus. Per
lander's contribution is generally
"Forethought in all things," and
that of Bias, "Too many workers
spoil the work," which has a mod
ern parallel about the cooks and the
broth. But, whatever the form,
much solid wisdom Is got into about
25 words of the English versions.
lilFE ON EARTH GOOD
FOR 15,000,000 YEARS.
Philadelphia. Replying to a
question recently put by a clergyman
nt the weekly meeting of Presbyter
Ian ministers, Professor Eric Doo
little, director of the University of
Pennsylvania's astronomical observ
atory, said he thought that life on
the earth would como to an end In
about 15,000,000 years.
Professor Doolittle had been mak
ing an address on "Astronomy." In
reference to the end of the earth's
life he said:
"Unless some supernatural power
or being Interferes or tho earth'
comes in contact with another planet
or heavenly body, tho earth will
exist for fifteen 'million more years.
"The earth Is dependent upon the
sun for Its heat and light, although
the earth now contains some heat it
self. When the sun eventually cools
off the result will be darkness and
cold, which will bring an end to all
life, animal and vegetable."
