Royal, deputy surveyor, happened to be stopping with us over night, and having ) bottle of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral with him, induced my wife to try this remedy. The result was so beneficial that she kept on taking it till she was cured." R. S. HUMPHRIES, Saussy, Ga. "My little daughter was taken with a distressing cough, which for three years defied all the remedies I tried. At length, on the urgent recommendation of a friend, I began to give her Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. After using one bottle I found to my great surprise that she was improving. Three bottles completely cured her." J. A. GRAY, Trav. Salesman Wrought Iron Rango Co, St. Louis, Mo. is put up in half - size bottles at half price 50 cents. ffierrg pecisraf terms.

AVOCA Council Meets and Pastes the Electric Light Ordinance Annexation of East District of Marcy Township to Avocs Ilorough - Hev. Andrew Ilrydte Meets With a Painful Acctdenl - Preparatlous Are Rapidly Being; Mntle for New Electric l.tflll.l - Olln r Notes. Borough council met in tegular session Tuesday evening, all members lining present excepting Mr. Conlon. The fact that the contract between the Standard Electric Light, Heat and 1'ower company was to be read, signed by council, brought out a large crowd, who expected a rather lively session, but they were disappointed, as the contract was accepted and ordered placet on the minutes by a vote of four to three. President Meade, callel the. meeting to order at 7: HO. and after reading the minutes of the previous meeting the bills of High Constable Green for burying dead animals; M. F. Whalen, $3, for administering oaths to board of health; stro?t commissioner. $15; Dr. J. F. Dougherty, for services as health officer, $50; John McGahren. esq., ,$10J for attorney fee, were ordered paid. A committee consisting of Messrs. Kielloy and Graham was appointed to confer with the si'hool board and investigate reported tax abatements. Messrs. Osborne, O'Brien and Graham of the First, Second and Third wards, respectively, were appointed to committee to locate the electric '..ghls. The contract for lighting the borough was then read and ordered placed on ihe minutes, after which council adjourned to meet February M at i :. p. m. James K - tighron and B. J. Quinn of Wilkes - Barre called on Jcscjph Mooie yesterday. Mr. Frank Beamish made a business trip to Bingham ton on Tuesday. The Sons of Temperance will hold a social this evening after the business of their regular meeting has been completed. Mrs. John Reap of the West Side at tended the Manley obsequies at Dun - more yesterday. The Ladies' Missionary society of the Langcliffe Presbyterian church will hold its monthly meeting th:s afternoon at the home of Mrs. Ebenezer Frew of the West Side. We are at last to have the town lighted by electricity. The last barrier that has Impeded the progress of th3 lighting has been removed. The. contract has been signed and handed over to the company, and as soon as the I1 POWDEB Absolutely Pure weather will permit post holes will be dug and the poles erected and the wires put in place. Teamstei - s have been busy the past few 'days distributing the poles and crossbars, and yesteiday workmen were engaged cutting th3 groove preparatory to fastening th3 crossbar to the poles. Contractor Mc - Gowan expects to have the holes dug and the poles placed in a very short times, and in a few weeks Avoca will revel in effulgent rays of its 30 arc lights of 2.000 candle power each. For the past ten years this question has agitated the minds of our citizens, and while at the present time there are some who feel that the people are unable to pay the extra tax that the lighting will incur, yet the majority seem to leei that the light is an absolute necessity and are willing to pay the extra tax. The electric light is certainly an essential requisite of this town and will be a benefit not only from a business and municipal standpoint, but also from a moral standpoint. Avoca has been designated one of the darkest hamlets in Wyoming Valley and it is along the general lines of improvement to light our principal thoroughfares. For the past two years the citizens of the East district of Marcy township have been considering the advisability of annexing that portion of Marcy to Avoca. Since Avoca is to be lighted by electricity it would be a most desirable time for them to annex. They would then secure the advantage of having a well lighted settlement; water plugs could be placed conveniently. They would have the sole protection of our fire company, police protection would be secured and they would be relieved of a number of things that are now most distasteful to the residents of that section. East district get your petition in readiness, present it to court and become part of our enterprising borough. The Epworth letague will serve a Wesley supper followed by an entertainment in the M. E. church this evening. A silver offering will be taken up in a silver tea pot. The Y. M. I., Avoca council No. 40, will hold a social on Friday evening, Feb. 18, in Sarsfield opera house. Rev. Andrew Brydie, formerly pastor of the Langcliffe Presbyterian church, met with a serious accident in Rochester, N. Y., by falling into a coal pit during a severe storm and sustaining injuries that are thought to ba of serious consequence. Mr. Peter Walsh of Scranton made a business call in town yesterday. W. J. Williams and Thos. Llewellyn have entered as students in the Scranton Business college. WYOMING COUNTY NEWS. Railroad lng Amidst Snow Drifts ou the Montrose Hallway Road Building Up the Creek - The County's Wards. Cheapening the Medals of Honor. Death of Daniel B. Loderick - Some Short News Notes. TU - NrKH'ANN'OCK. Feb. 2. The Mon - trfiSP mivflrl train l.Pr U , - - , Tuesday morning at 0:45 a. m. The engineer, James Deubler, has not run over the road some twenty years not to be rigged for the inevitable and in consequence he took with him a boiler full of eatables. At Lemon he hitched the snow plow ahead of him and pulled through to Montrose. The return trip was made to South Montrose, but the snow had drifted the road full again and Che little train was unable for want of water and fuel to get on. It was a herculean task even when properly fired up to push through the cuts filled with snow. 'Then a sigh went out for Asa P. Blakeslee. The telephone was used over to Montrose to telegraph to Sayre that the train was stalled. Then the wire went back to hold the fort and help would be sent from this end. A train of railroad men was sent on here from Sayre by Superintendent Esser and the engine No. 1 was tired up, but was unable to get away last night. This morning orders were sent on from 'Sayre to the gang here to run to Springvllle regardless of train No. 1 stalled along up the road and the train up there was urged to pue'h along cautiously down the road. This was doing business ait a distanceat arm's length. The oid engineer of the Montrose freight train was enlisted into the service to pilot the Lt high Valley men over the road to the relief of the men on the mountain. The train pulled out and no word will come from t'he - m until they have worked the other train out of the drifts. - Meanwhile the local mails along the road are not delivered and the mails for Montrose are sent round by way of Scranton and the Lackawanna and Montrose R. R. It is no time now to find fault with the programme at the recent farmers' institute held at the court house. It might, however, have been a timely suggestion to have made at the time the programme was being made up that the names of Lewis Stanton, Webster Dixon and Andrew Card should be set down as of persons who could talk on how to build roads. There is no fault in having the veteran road builder, Fred Miller, down ior road 'building talk, but Dixon, Card and Stanton are gentlemen of record as road builders and they would "have drawn crowds and added to the interesting things at the Institute. Card and Dixon were said to have been partners in the - building of a road out in Tunkhannoek township and Stanton built some of the road for them. Card denied the partnership of Dixon, land after that denial Stanton sued Card tor his wages and his work. Card defended and the case was tried out before Squire Kutz and an appeal taken. The case was up for trial at court and settled. It was just fres'h from that settlement that Messrs. Card and t..iitun timid have been seen at 'their best in a talk on roads and road building. Sheriff Ahira Gregory at the county bastile has in durance vile Bert Smith and Judson Hinkley, serving tinre for three months for the larceny of a 'horse blanket over at Nicholson; Arthur Train sue for loving not wisely but too well - a young lady over at Noxen; George Saunders serving time for costs on the Levi Ph?lps hos - s prosecution and young Chas. Wheeloek is staying with the sheriff to be handy when his friends get around with the costs in the Benton Houser overcoat case. The old soldiers who received recogni tion from Uncle Sam during the war by the gi anting to them of medals of honor are a little touchy about the cheapness that they are getting to assume. They were voted their medals while the war was going cm and for deeds of valor that distinguished them from their fellows. Colonel N. A. MdKown of this place was one of the chaps who were designated by a special act of congress, during the war, as a man who "had been extra valorous and he was voted a medal. The number of chaps who were given such recognition were few. Senator Boies Penrose down in the United States Senate has 'been bringing himself to the front "by his effort to cheapen the medal of honor in the measure tie brought UP in the Senate this week asking that the 142 men of the 700 who went through the riot at Baltimore in the early war be made "Medal of Honor" men. The fact fe that they displayed no extraordinary iveroism. They were in it and they had to get out of it. They simply did what most of the boys who went to war did and that was when hey got into a, hole fought their way out. Col. McKown wrote to Senator Penrose if the medals of honor were a thing to cheapen he would be pleased to mail Che one he had been voted, to Penrose. That's about the size of it. The medal of honor as first voted was all that its name signifies, but when H is to be voted wholesale to a crowd who did nothing especial. - other Chan as thousands of their fellows did many a time, the medal leses its significance and it might as well have never 'bean originated. Sheriff Gregory has in hand only nine executions thus far returnable to April term of court. Mrs. Clarence A. Little was in, receipt of a telegram Tuesday night announcing the death of her brother, ex - Burgess Daniel B. Loderick, at Plymouth, Pa. Mrs. Little and daughter went down to Plymouth this morning.

The New Dry Air Germicide for the Cure of Diseases in the Respiratory Organs. NATURE'S OWN REMEDY. By Inhalation Alone Can (terms Be Reached end Destroyed. It has often been said by scientific and medical men that nature has provided a cure for every disease, an antidote for every poison. This saying was never so clearly exemplified as in the discovery of HYOMEI, the first Dry Air Germicide ever found of sufficient power to kill the germs of all respiratory diseases, yet volatile enough to impregnate every particle of air breathed and leave it free from moisture. For 3'ears physicians Ii?.ve labored to find some cure for Catarrh, Bronchitis, Asthma and Consumption, and statistics show how utterly they have failed in their efforts. This has not been for the lack of a remedy which would kill the bacilli of disease, but due to the fact that such remedies could be used in no other way than through sprays, douches, atomizers and vapors, which precluded all possibility of their ever entering the bronchial tubes and lungs. What a contrast between these old methods and the new ! Since HYOMEI was first discovered this new germicide, which can be carried in the air you breathe to the minutest air cells of the lungs, has been tested by over 381, - 000 people, and, although every bottle has been guaranteed, but eleven persons out of this vast number have reported no benefit received and asked for a return of their money.
