Into custody Harry Starllper, one of
the most notorious crooks in this sec

been searching for Starllper ever since
the latter part of July. Sunday after
noon word came to the olllcers that
Starllper was in hiding in the moun
tains of Fulton county, the exact lo
cation of his hiding place being Im
That night the sheriff and the county
detective left Chambcrsburgo arrest
Starllper. At Fort Loudon they were
joined by Constable Brlndle, who had
made numerous trips into the moun
tain districts of this county in the hope
that ho would be able to locate the
much-wanted man. Monday morning
about two o'clock they came upon the
hiding place of Starllper at the hut of
James Spriggs, about one mile and
a-half west of McConnollsburg.
Starliper was asleep when the offi
cers came upon mm. xne place in
which he was hiding was little less
than a hovel. Spriggs and his wife
occupied the only bed in the place.
Two children lay sleeping on the floor
near a Btove. On a pile of rags lay
Starllper. Underneath him were some
of the stolen artielps, for the larceny
of which he must answer at the next
term of criminal com t at Chambers
burg. Starliper is wanted on two charges
of burglary. In the latter part of July
he is alleged to have broken into the
house of Isaac Burall, near Kaster-
vllle, Montgomery township, Frank
lin county, aud stolen a quantity of
goods. On August 17 he is charged
with having forcibly entered the house
of William Scott, near Fort Loudon.
A portion of the plunder stolen from
Seott including two suits of clothing,
an overcoat and a shot gun, was re
covered from Starliper upon his ar
rest. "Ilelloa, Sammy," said Starliper to
Detective Johnston, after rubbing his
eyes and awakening to the true state
of affairs. He was told what he was
wanted for and came along without a
murmur. In going through the heavy
undergrowth Starliper told Johnston,
who had hold of him, that ho needn't
be afraid of his trying to get away.
The detective told him he was taking
no risks, realizing that a slip in the
darkness would give the prisoner, who
is acquainted with the territory a good
start; so the detective held on to him
until the prisoner was safe In the buggy-
On the two charges Starliper waived
a hearing before Justices Hollinger,
Montgomery township, and Wilson,
Mercersburg. Then he was taken to
the Chambersburg jail by Detective
Johnston, Sheriff Penslnger returned
by train from Mercersburg.
Starliper is about thirty-four years
of age and married. Ills wife does
not live with him. He was oorn near
Mercersburg and his father lives at
nedgevillo, Va. On May 1, 1897, Star
liper was sentenced to fifteen months
in the penitentiary by Judge Stewart
after pleading guilty to larceny, on
oath of William II. Blair. He is said
to have served other terms in the pen
itentiary, one of his periods of con
finements being for crime in Dauphin
Starliper. judging from his past rec
ords and relying on the statements of
people who know hlra, has spent a
greater portion of his life in prison.
His method was to work for farmers
until he became sufliclontly acquainted
with the premises to enable him to
make a good haul. Then ho would
leave ostensibly to go to another por
tion of the State. A burglary nearly
always followed. In some instan
ces the victims never brought suit, so
that it is quite probable Starllper is
guilty of more crlmo than the court
records show. .

William Fauber Trout, M. D., D. D.
S., one of the best known and most
estimable physician and surgeons In
southern Pennsylvania, died at his
home in this place, on Thursday even
ing, September 7th, at 0.30 o'clock,
aged (Ml years, 0 months and 18 days.
Dr. William F. Trout, the oldest son
of Jacob and Eloise P. Trout, former
residents of Chambersburg, wus born
in Fort Littleton, Fulton county, on
January 20, 1K.'C(, In a house on the
furm property which he owned at the
time of his decease. The deuth of his
father occurring when the doctor was
quite a youth, accompanied by his
brother, Jacob S. Trout, he went to
Virginia to reside with an uncle, where
ho received an early education. Com
pleting a common school course he
matriculated at Jefl'erson Medical Col
lege in Philadelphia for a course of
study in medicine and dentistry. Upon
Dr. Trout's graduation in 185(1 from
Jefferson college in medicine and den
tistry he engaged in the practice of his
profession in Ohio for a brief period
of time. Some time during the years
57 or '58, inspired bv the healthy am
bition of a young man and with a de
sire to visit the Holy land, he went to
Syria, where he practiced both sur
gery and dentistry. Very interesting
were the doctor's reminsecnt recollec
tions of the experiences ho met with
during this period of his life, spent
among the Bedouin Arabs, who con
sidered the frequent exhibitions of sur
gical and dental skill which he had
occasion to manifest, us truly among
the marvelous and many and almost
priceless were the relics of his Arabian
life which were his prized home pos
session. Dr. Trout was joined by his
brother, the late Dr. Jacob S. Trout,
while abroad and they practiced their
professions together in Palestine. Dr.
Trout returned to his native land at
the time of the commencement of the
war of the rebellion and associated
himself in partnership for a while with
the late Dr. J. L. Suesserott. During
the time of his residence in Chambers
burg just prior to the war he met his
bride-to-be, Miss Matilda, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Boker, Phila
delphia. Returning to McConnells
burg in 18G1 he becume associated with
the late Dr. S. E. Duflield in the prac
tice of his profest - js and bo contin
ued for several years. Upon the dis
solution of the partnership ho prac
ticed his profession alone continuous
ly until th time of his death. On the
2i)th of October, 18(i.'i, he was united in
marriago with Miss Matilda Boker, of
Philadelphia. The doctor occupied
many . oflicial positions of trast, in
this place, serving as burgess several
times and as a member of the town
council up to the day of his death. He
was also( for many years a member of
the Pension Examining Board of Ful
ton county. In June, 18!)8, Dr. Trout
was the victim of a very unfortunate
runaway accident on the Mercersburg
mountain which was the ultimate cause
of his death. In driving down the
mountain from Mercersburg towards
home his horses frightened at a chute
used for getting wood from the top of
the mountain to the pike and ran
away, throwing the doctor and his
companion out of the buggy violently
to the ground and inflicting injuries
from which he suffered until the time
of his death. About three weeks ago,
through severe pains in his right foot,
he was obliged to take to his bed;
through the constant increase of his
sufferings It was decided to summon
his son, Dr. N. C. Trout, of Fairfield,
Pa., to his bedside. The latter, upon
his arrival home, after consultation
with Dr. A. D. Dalbey, the attending
physician, decided that amputation
was necessary and Drs. Suesserott,
Ramsey and Palmer, of Chambersburg,
were telegraphed for. The visiting
physicians performed the operation,
assisted by Drs. Dalbey, Garthwaite
and N. C. Trout. The patient never
fully rallied from the operation and
two hours and a half later passed
peacefully from earth to the better
country. Few men were better known
or will ever be held in more effection
ate remembrance In his homo country
than Dr. W. F. Trout and few pos
sessed a larger circle of cherished
friends elsewhere. In the doctor's
thirty-eight years of practice he never
refused a call to the bedside of the
sick, it mattered not howpoor that pa
tient might be and how little chaneo
there was for any remuneration. Ever
of a cheery, genial disposition his
very advent in the sick room was a
source of help to the patient. The in
clemency of the weather and cold or
heat mattered not; he was ever on the
alert and many were the quiet and
unostentatious deeds of charity which
he practiced and which served to re
lieve the distress and want of the poor.
During his active life he was never
confined to bed one day by illness.
He was one of Fulton county's most
energetic and public spirited citizens,
ever interested in the welfare of' his
home town and community. Through
a life ever devoted to alleviating the
suffering of others his death will be
mourned by many. The- funeral ser
vices, which were held from his late
residence on Saturday afternoon,
wero largely attended , by the people
from all ports of Fulton county and
elsewhere in the state. Rev. Draw
baugh, assisted by Rev. Grove, con
ducted the services, and the remains
were laid to rest in Big Cove ceme
tery, followed by the largest proces
sion ever seen in Fulton county. Six
of the doctor's fellow professional men
acted as pall bearers Drs. Dalbey,
Garthwaite, Hill, Hanks, Swartzwel
der and Unger. His widow, three
sons, Dr. N. C, of Fairfield, Clarence
N., in charge of the home drug store,

The bereaved family have received
many tioautiful and touching letters of
condolence. Personal friends, busi
ness men with whom the deceased had
dealing, members of the medical and
other" professions hastened to send
their tribute in words fitly chosen to
alleviate in a certain measure the great
sorrow that had fallen upon Its mem
bers. The brothers of the Masonic
fraternity, of which the Doctor was a
memlier, having joined the order In
ChamlxTsburg upward of forty years
ago, were especially kind and sympathetic.
