Naturalization papers will not be se-
cured with so much ease hereafter, ow-
ing to the stringent regulations mow
enforced by the recent amendments to
the United States law. Copies of the
law have been received. The applica-
tions must be made exclusively in the
Federal court, and a much higher
grade of intelligence will be required
from the applicant, while the proceed-
ure specified will have a tendency to
do away with much of the fraud prac-
ticed throughout the country.
The applicant must be either of the
Qaucasian or African race, have lived
in the United States for five years, be
able to speak, read and write the Eng-
lish language, must file his petition in
triplicate and file also information as to
the date of his arrival and the petition
must be filed in the clerk’s office for
ninety days previous to the hearings.
A fee of $7 will be required, a part jof
which goes to the clerk and a part to
‘the government. The certificate of
naturalization gives a complete des-
cription of the applicant, his place of
birth, age, height, complexion, color of
eyes, marks upon his person, the name
of his wife, her place of birth and age,
and the names of their children, their
_ ages, places of birth and residences.

to statements of operators. The fact
that the anthracite market was over-
run 9,000,000 tons by the coal trust in
_ anticipation of a strike this summer,
and that there is little coal in the stor-
age yards at this time, is taken as con-
elusive evidence by independent oper-
ators that hard coal is making inroads
‘on the bituminous business. The strike
in many of the soft coal districts has
enabled hard coal dealers to recapture
some of the markets which they lost in
1802, and in previous strikes extending
back 25 years, and they confidently
count on holding the new trade.

The title of the novel is “Doc. Gor-

The Bane of the Average Female Promply
Eliminated by a Simple Remedy.
Backache, whether due to natural
causes or the result of disease, can be
promptly alleviated and ultimately
cured by the use of Dr. Wood’s Kid-
ney and Backache pills. Thousands of
suffering women can testify to the
truth of this.
It is a purely vegetable compound
and does not contain any poisons or
deleterious substances. It acts prompt-
ly,and in addition to relieving the pain
tones up the system and makes life
worth living. A trial will convince
and a trial will costs you nothing. If
they do not do all that is claimed for
them your money will be cheerfully re-
Dr. Wood is a reputable physician
who has had over 40 years of exper-
ience in kidney troubles, having made
it a specialty, and these pills are made
from his own perscription.

Short Term of Court.
Despite the fact that nine cases ap-
pear on the printed list, it is probable
the special August term of court,
last over a couple of days. Five of the
actions are those in which Mr, and
Mrs. John D. Wentroth seeks to re-
cover contested insurance claims
against companies which refuse to ful-
fill policy agreements, covering the
destruction of a Summerhill hotel, al-
leged to have been set on fire by its
landlord. The case in which Attorney
J. F. McKenrick sought to collect for
professional services from the Barnes-
nesboro school district has been settled,
while the case of A. C. Lytle vs J. B.
Denny, arising from a folding-bed ac-
cident at the Merchant’s Hotel, in
Johnstown, has been continued by
agreement of counsel. In addition to
the five insurance cases, therefore, only
two remain for trial.

They Were Once Used In a Charohe
yard In Scotland,
In the earlier half of the nineteenth
century the practice of stealing bodies
from the churchyards for the purpose
of sale as subjects for Afssection, whieh
was known ns “body snatching,” was
for a time very rife.
Various plans were made to defeat
the nefarious and sacrilegious proceed
ings of the “body snatchers,” or “resur-
rectionists,” as they were sometimes
called, a very common one being the
erection of two or more small watchs
houses whose windows commanded
whole burying ground, and in
which the friends of the deceased
mounted guard for a nmmber of nights
after the funeral.
A usual method of the grave robbers
was to dig down to the head of the
coffin and bore in it a large round hole
by means of a specially constructed
center bit. It was to counteract this
maneuver that the two curious coffin.
fike relics now lying on either side of
the door of the ruined church of Aber-
foyle, in Perthshire, were constructed.
They are solid masses of cast iron of
enormous weight.
When an interment took place one of
these massive slabs was lowered by
suitable derricks, tackles and chains
on to the top of the coffin, the grav
was filled in, and there it was left fi
some considerable time. Later on th
grave was opened and the iron armeo
plate was removed and laid aside
ready for another funeral.
These contrivances still lie on the
grass of the lonely little churchyard,
objects of curiosity to the passing cy-
efist and tourist.—Scientific American.
The Explanation,
One morning the readers ofa certain
newspaper were perplexed to see in
| type the announcement that “the Sco-
tus handed down an Important deck
sion yesterday.” The afternoon paper
of the town, with which the morning
paper for years had held a bitter con-
troversy, interesting none but them-
selves, laughed that day, as the poets
say, “in ghoulish glee,” and it was up
to the morning paper the next day to
2xplain that “the types” made them
say that the Scotus did so and so when
the telegraph editor should have known
that that word was merely the abbre-
viation of the telegrapher for suprems
tourt of the United States.

is, what medium to use?
Advertising experts long
ago settled it by declar-

effective and brings better
returns than any other
extant. The merchants
of this section long ago
declared that better re-
sults were obtained by
using the COURIER than
by any other means. It

hundreds of families and
goes into the homes of the
