A Warning, The thieves that stole a grubbing hoe and shovel on the dug road hill, near Salt Run, last week, had better re turn them to the place they got them, if they don't want to be made public and land in the coop with the rest.

Union Service in the evening at the First M. E. Church. JOHN L. BOCU'E, Pastor. The Thimble Club" Entertained. Mrs. J. A. Smith, of Sterling Run, entertained "The Thimble Clab" at her hospitable home Thursday even ing. Sept. 2nd. These gatherings weekly have a two-fold purpose, viz:— The raising of money in a delightful way and the welding of an unbreakable chain of friendship. They serve their purpose admirably. The earlier part of the evening is spent in conversation over busied hands. You may hear often as witty attacks and replies as are ever heard during the post-prand ial hour at the dinners to great men. Nothing becomes monotonous and all are sorry when half-past nine finds the club adjourned after the reading of the minutes, transaction of business and partaking of tastily prepared refresh ments. Those present this evening were: Mrs. Geo. Strawbridge, Mrs. A. A. Smith, Misses Nora Jordan, Lillian Strawbridge, Nellie Whiting, Cora Dice, Elsie Warner, Nettie Kissel, Mildred Strawbridge, Mrs. C. O. How lett, Miss R. L. Brink, Carlton Smith, Rev. J. W. Shank and host and hostess. XX At Cape Nome. We copy this article from a Seattle Wash., paper, Mr. Pelky being a for mer Emporium boy: "A. Pelky, a new arrival at Nome Alaska, Aug. 6, from the Innoko, brought a huge poke of coarse gold and big nuggets, the whole weighing over ten pounds, of the highe3t grade gold in Alaska. Its assay value is $19,- 75 per ounce. The largest nugget weighed 29 ounces, another 15 ounces and others 10, 12, and 5 ounces. Mr. Pelky reports that the Innoko and its various tributaries will produce nearly 500,000 this season. Grub is very scarce and famine prices prevail. Flour is $35 per 100 pounds; bacon and ham 75cts pound and everything else in proportion. Wild game and timber are plentiful. Miners generally outfit for two years." Evening Party. Mr. and Mrs. E. Mead Floyd enter tained a few friends at their home on West Sixth street, last Thursday even ing, in honor of their guest, Miss Marie Garvin, of Youngstown, Ohio.
