Early yestcrdiy morning a string of two

' collectins supplies lroin the many mer
chants who had assisted The DispatCK
Christmas fund for the benefit of Home
ftead children. Every iraion was loaded
to the top, and then began the momentous
v trip to Eintracht Hall, Homestead. What
these boxes, packages and mysterious look
ing bundles contained must be a secret
intil this afternoon. Ssnta Claim never

cting lor each just what is wanted.
Onlv one little tccret will be let slip, if
he children up there won't tell anybody.
Vhether it is the association of ideas or
ierely the natural desire ol a boy to hit
omething is not known, but many pleas
lave been sent in for airguns, and that has
K-en granted. Some 200 airguns, cuaran
etd not to burst, will be among the many
nice things distributed.

SUVFZBED FOE WAKT OF HEAT.
The Cold Weather rlnch-s Manufactories
and Houses as to Natural Gas.
The shortage in natural gas ddring the
past two days has been greatly felt on the
Southside. " The glas houses have been the
greatest sufferers. In some of the plants
work has been almost suspended'and In
others the work can hardly be continued.
Evan's glasshouse, at Twentv-second street,
has been almost the only one that has not
sufiered. Thir is because they are so situ

is dissipated bv the citv's consumption.

F. J. Weaver, the man who was arrested
at Braddock on Thursday on suspicion of
being a burglar was yesterday released
from custody by 'Squire HoltzmaU as It was
discovered that Mr. Weaver instead of be

looking for work.
Superintendent O'Mara became interested
in the case and finding Weaver to be a de
