During the past two weeks strange men

stepped out on the porch on their way
home when a stranger made a rush at
them and attempted to catch hold of
them. The young ladies ran back into
the h ;use and in bis rush tbe fellow

frontdoor. An alarm was given to the
neighbors and tbe scoundrel disap
peared. His only object weired to be to
frighten tbe latlie. Tho police were
notified but Mrs. Cook stated today that
