Colonel Henry H. Hsdlty and bis brother.
Bsmuel Hopkins Hsdley. are today t'.tfl nost
noted rescue workers la the world. Colonel
Hadley Is commander of the "Blue Bd$.c''
army, or rescue organization, nuai'x.rtng
about 20,000. He la the author of a new
book entitled "The Blue Bade of Cour
age." Beginning with the baccwoodi life
of the author, he shows the pemllsrltl ?a of
the pioneer bill folk with whom he a so
clated; takes you to an old-style revival;
to a gambling den where every possession
Is staked and lost; to a country dance, with
Its comical aide lights; to the sluttM cf a
great city, and finally to the oasis In tha
desert of wickedness, the rescue mlsrlon,
showing ua the tragedies which are acted
In reality but a short distance from the
churches or tbe metropolis. It Is not a re
ligious book, nor a temperance book, but
a simply told story of a noble life, a book
which cannot fall to amuse and entertain
all who are tn any way Interested In the
great work that Colonel Hadley Is now do
ing. Though many pathetic scenes are de
scribed, they are offset by the Jokes cr
comical storlea told by the "one time" gam
bler, strolling minstrel, drunkard or thlrf.
It shows the Influence and wonderful work
these men are doing. Published by ths
Baalfleld Publishing Co.
Robert W, Chambers, author of "Cardi
gan" and other well-known stories, has
written a book for children, entitled "Out
doorland." The story Is told In such a way
that tha child Is completely entertained and
never auspecta how thoroughly he Is o'lrtg
Instructed In natural history. He tells of
tha milkweed, butterfly, the brook trout,
tha green frog, the grass snake, the robin,
spider, etc. As a story of this kind "Out
aoorlsnd" fills a long-continued demand, and
we venture to predict that It will occupy a
place alone In Juvenile literature because
of Its wonderfully successful combination
of education with amusement. The author,
famous aa a successful novelist. Is an ac
complished student of natural history. He
baa made bis animals or Insects or trees tell
their own stories In language of the most
simple kind, and the result is strikingly
good. It la an Ideal Christmas gift. It Is
profusely Illustrated by Reginald B. Birch,
the well known illustrator of "Little Lord
Fauntleroy." Published by Harper ft Bros.
Bcrlbner's have published a new book by
William Alexander Linn entitled "Rob and
Ilia Qun," whose aim s to teach boys the
difference between mere shooting and true
sportsmanship, while at the same time be
offers a story thoroughly interesting for
boys. ' Cousin Dave a aecond cousin to Rob
Edsall visits his city cousin In New York
and suggests for Rob's health a trip and
summer vacation to his farm, which la also
advised by the doctor.' Tbe first morning
tu the farm he is Introduced to the pointers
nd Betters, receiving useful lufcrmatloa
ibout their training, handling, etc. Next
follows lessons in shooting. Including the
clay pigeon trap, wing ahootlng anil noma
good aCvlc for sportsmen to remember.
Then comes a life that will nil a sportsman
with envy. Cousin Dave, an aocoroplUned
man "With the gun,-takes Jtob around the
farm for quail and woodcock; to the Adlron
flacks for deer; to Barnegat bay for ducks;
to Dakota for geese, deer snooting In Can
ada, etc. The experiences ar many and
varied soma hardships and the vacation
Is, as a whole, Joyously spent. There is
much of information also about tlio bablta
of gamo birds and animals. In fact, the
book Is full of Information In hunting and
ill pertaining to the true sportsman, and,
best of all. It. la not written dryly, but in
in attractive and interesting story fond.

children, but which has been changed so
It would hardly be understood by the or

VALUE OF TESTIMONY
Greater Than Aasertloa.
There Is none of ns so hardened but that
when we have been able to aid our fellow
creaturea by conferring a benefit or bring
ing a little comfort Into their lives we like
to have appreciation shown. This generally
affords more pleasure than the performance
of the act Itself, and In this connection tbe
following letter from a Paris, Texas, lady
Is of more than usual interest: "Dear
Friends: I address you as such, for you
have been aucb to me. I suffered for three
years off and on with piles. I was treated
at the hospital, and tbe new and elegant
hospital, of Memphis: they only gave me
temporary relief. I came west, thirklng the
change of air and water would benefit me
five months ago the bleeding piles came
back on me. and bled so much that I
thought I would die. I have bad four of
the finest doctors In this section of Texas
all they did was to Anally nearly let me go
to my grave; all they wanted was a big sum
of money from me and to operate on ma
I said no, no surgeon's knife would enter
me; If It was my time to die God knew It
and when I died I would die all together
I began besring sbout your medicine. I
had no faith In you. but I aent and got
box of your Pyramid Pile Cure: In two
days ths blood flow had slackened to one
half the amount, and In one week I felt so
much better I walked four block and did
a little housework. I wss not bleeding
then; In three weeks I waa well. Ood bless
you for putting such a wonderful medicine
within the reach of suffering men and wo
men. I shall never ceaas to recommend
your medic1 ne or be without it; slso I
used your Pyramid Pills. Sallls A. Hsarn
don." Testimony like this, should be more
convincing than all claims and assertion
and should leavs bo doubt In the mind
of ths reader aa to the merit of tbs rem
edy. Pyramid Pile Cure Is sold by drug
gists for fifty cents a package, or will be
mailed by ths makers to any address upon

HARD PRESSEDFOR DELEGATES
Mercer People Pat Two tKames an
Sixth Ward Tickets Wtthoat
With the filing of the delegations of the
Sixth ward the psuclty of the Mercer ele
ment waa made plain in at least two In
stances. When the list wss printed Joseph
Chrlstensen saw for the first time that he
waa a candidate for delegate to the county
convention and that he was on the Mercer
delegation. As soon as he could, Mr.
Chrlstensen wrote notices to the secretary
of the county central committee requesting
htm to take the name from ths Hat, saying
that It waa placed thereon without his
knowledge or consent. At tbe same time
be sent a notice to the chairman of the
printing committee of the county central
committee, notifying him of the way In
which hla name came to be used and asking
that it be atrlcken from the list of dele
gatea as It will bs printed.
Dr. W. H. Christie heada tbe Mercer
delegation iu the Sixi.lt ward. Ho siaucd
tbe petition for the delegation selected by
N. C. Pratt and told tbe Sixth ward can
didate that bla name was placsd upon
tbe Mercer delegation without bis knowl
edge. He baa not, however, withdrawn
from that delegation at thla time.
As the Mercer delegation originally ap
peared, it contained the name of Qus Hollo,
a member of the Machlnlsta's union. When
he found that the Mercer contingent had
taken liberties with him Hollo went to
them and demanded that bis name bs re
moved from the delegation. .This was done
and another name substituted. Hollo later
went on tb Pratt delegation.

me Mercer forces were hopelessly In the
minority at the meeting, but every vote
that was taken was unanimous, anyway.
Immediately after roll call Mr. Cornish pre

preliminary agreement, which were:

Finally the executive committee reported
that there were no protests received, and It

Aside from the ballot provisions the Im

Absolutely no objection to this arose.
Next came another resolution by Mr. Potter,
providing for the use of white ballots, uni
form in size and shane, in the country pre
cincts where printed ballots were used.
This was altered to a recommendation, In
view of the fact that the county commit
tee had decided not to furnish any printed
ballots to country precincts itself, and as
such wss adopted. It was said collaterally
that the candidates In thoss precincts often
got up different colored ballots, so there

of tbe meeting that no concessions would

Following a meeting with J. P. Morgan,
John Markle made this statement: '
I do not think It necesttary to repeat that
nil concessions on the part of the operator
Is foolish and certainly without foundation.
Our position .l.iw Is the sunie as when
Mitchell miule his original propositions and
no different than when the strike brgan.
We said then thst we would make no con
cessions nnd we repeat It now. There Is n
reason why this should not tie understood.
The operators have thown thot they mean
It and I repeat only by way of emphasis
There Is Just one way to end the strike
by the men returning to work, and every
day they remain away by giving willlnir
i-ur to Mitchell's specious promises will
only entiill further loss nnd suffering to
them. Conditions are Improving dall ;
more men are returning to work and more

Bo far as rerent attempts at settlement

that every effort from Kenalor Hannns
