A very Interesting and popular feat' ure of the National Guard encampment Is the work conducted by the State Young Men's Christian association at the annal encampments of our State Guard. The work was begun in 1894. and has been successfully prosecuted eves since. The State association erects a large tent with each of the three brigades, equipping tie same with tables and writing material organ and song books, paper rack with a splen did assortment of the best magazines and weeklies of the country, as well as daily papers from the home towns of the Guardsmen, and the great city dailies, and checkers, chess, crokinole, car - roms, quoits and base ball. Each tent is a well - equipped association, free to all guardsmen. Gospel meetings are held at the tents during the encampment, and everything possible is done for the highest good and comfort of the men. The associations throughout the state co - operate with the State association in the work, many of the workers being secretaries or members from these associations. These tents have become a recognized feature of the encampment, and are among the most popular places in the camp. Both officers and privates unite in most hearty commendation of the work. The work is supported by voluntary contributions, and any wishing to help maintain this work can send their gift to James B. Bailey, treasurer. State Y. M. C. A., Harrisburg, Pa.

No reason or cause could be assigned for the lockjaw; . excepting that mustard plaster, which she had worn, had frightfully blistered her back. MORTGAGE FOR $12,000,000 FILED.

Yesterday was a record - breaking day in the line of deaths reported in this city to the Bureau of Health. Thirty - one is the number and that it is remarkable can be attested by the fact that often during some months the death rate is as low as thirty - five for the month. Most of the deaths, in fact, twenty - five, were those of infants. The usual summer complaint, cholera infantum, is therefore more prevalent than ever before. Most of the infants are under two years of age. It was stated this morning in the office of the Health Department that the above number exceeded any one of the v fit ! - S. - '' MRS. M. BRICKIMER. 99 Eleventh Street, Milwaukee, Wis. "A short time ago I found my con ilition very serious.

Special to The Truth. Wilkes - Barre, June 27. The Anthra cite Board of Conciliation convened in the offices' of the Lehigh Valley company here today to take up a number of matters demanding attention before that body. The most important matter consid ered this morning was the grievance of the employes of tnif Plymouth colliery of the Delaware and Hudson company over the payment for the "bony" coal, a matter which has been before the board for some time. Division Superintendent Pettebone, of the Delaware and Hudson company, submitted a written statement of the conditions at the colliery, and the miners' representa tives asked the right to introduce at the next meeting testimony on the sub ject. It was accordinfgly decided to take testimony on the question before trying to adjust the matter. A new grievance submitted was from the Schuylkill region. The miners of the Mary D. colliery of the Mary D. Coal Company protested that the company had not lived up to the terms of the award of the Strike Commission, but it was found that the company was not a party to the commission, and therefore the Conciliation Board had no jurisdiction in the matter. So the grievance was discarded. It was decided to take testimony in several of the grievances which President Dettrey of the Hazleton district has presented at the next meeting. It is likely that the next meeting will be held in Hazleton, at a date yet to be decided upon. The board adjourned at noon until 2 o'clock this afternoon.

Deafness Cannot Be Cared by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is Inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed. Deafness is the result, and unless the Inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, Bearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothina but an Inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
