AN ATTEL.?T AT BURGLARY.-An
attempt was made to break into W. C.
Beatv's store on Tuesday night.
Aboult 12.30 a. mn. Policeman Gilbert
was walking down that way. His
dog, which was some distance ahead,
must bave frightened the would-be
burglar, as Mr. Gilbert saw somebody
run into the ally on the north side.
U~pon examining the premnites it was
found that onie of the plate glass5
windows had been broken by the
thief. Some time ago .a similar at
tempt was made and the window on
the other side broken. The tracks
lett by the thief seem to be those of a
boy, but thcre is no other clue.

The rains of Tuesday afernoon and

mani, many days. The showers did

the past that dificulty breaths out

analogous manner our affairs of the

of this happened to a young man ol
Winnsboro and a triend while at ending

The chureb w-.:s -;tu-ited iii a rural
district several miles from any viilage,

happened that on the day betore that
coutry had bcen vi~held by a very
heavy rain and the good people were
elieved from the regular duties of
farm life and wera without restraint
permitted to attend church that day.
At the sounding of the first note of

Nw the two sirangers, prompted by
the courtesy which always marks the
Winnusbore top , would willingly have
sfered their beats had they not been
so engrossed in the termon, that they
did not even realize the presence of
ladies. Hlowever, as no seats were
acated the two damsels began to

misfortune in leaving home so late,
then turning they saw the two strar.

rushed toward them crying, "You

sit in your lap." For a moment the
strangers were aghast, then realizing
their awful situationi they rose, atid
