Not to tell you about the purity of our drugs or the
accuracy of our compounding, for every man, woman and
child knows that in this we EXCEL all others in our
line. It is to tell you of all he new goods we are receiv

jNothing is nicer and more valuab e than a fine collec
tion of "STEINS" and we have them in all sizes and
prices. It is the craze of the present age, so fall in line.

If it could be done, tho scoundrels
who have been stealing the landB, as

THE MINE REGION MURDERS.
The brutal murder of Daniel Swee
ney.a non-union mine worker while on
his way to his home in Hanover, Pa.,
following closely the equally shocking
murder of tho merchant Joseph Bed
dall, shows only too plainly that there
is an element among the strikers
whose lawless impulses President
Mitchell and the union's district off!
clals cannot control. Tho tide of pub
11c opinion and sympathy will be turn
ed with overwhelming force against
the strikers by such deeds as these.
Another Mollio McGuire reign of
terror in the coal country is not to be
tolerated. And It Is quite clear, as
Father O'lteilly said in his recent
courageous sermon, only the presence
of the troops prevents It. In such a
situation there is nothing to be done
except to use all the military force
that is necessary to hold down this
murderous, element, which is almost
entirely made up of Ignorant and pas
