Burglars Captured Near Renovo. Now Confined In Emporium Jail. Last Sunday while P & E. B. R., Detective, Mr. J. O. Colwell, was at tending to his duty he noticed two chaps stealing a ride on a freight train, between Renovo and Lock Haven, and promptly arrested them. Upon ex amining the chaps he found a lot of sus picious artticles, razor knives, etc. Knowing that several robberies had beencommitted in Emporium he wired to this place and ascertaining the facts, when he locked up the chaps in Lock Haven jail, awaiting authority to bring his prisoners to Emporium. They were identified as Francis Getchell, of Emporium, aged 20 years, and Frank Smith, aged about 38 or 40. Sheriff John W. Norris and Ex- Sheriff Frank Mundy went to Lock Haven Monday night, returning on early morniDg Flyer with the prison ers, who were confined in jail. The prisoners were given a hearing before Esquire Larrabee Tuesday morning, F. A.Johnson District Attorneyappearing for the Commonwealth. The justice adjourned the hearing until Friday morning. Sufficient evidence has been secured to convict the thieves of entering H. S. Lloyd's book store and Heilman's hardware—H. S. Lloyd identifying some knives and F. V. Heilman a razor. So many depredations have been committed here during the past few weeks that it is hoped an entering wedge has been found and that more arrests will follow until this dastardly practice may be abolished. When the State Constabulary were located here they held in check the lawlessness. It is certainly necessary that a bunch of the Constabulary be returned to Em porium, which is centrally located. The large floating population in this section makes it absolutely necessary that our officials have experienced as sistance. "Let no guilty man escape." Game Warden. A. E.

Rockwell, died, at Koser's private sanitarium, at Williamsport early last Thursday morning, May 12tb. Deceased was born January 20, 1889 and was twenty-one years and five months of age Miss Green has made her home with Mrs. Rockwell for the past twelve years and it ia truly said no child could have received better care than that bestowed upon Mildred by her foster-mother. Miss Green was an accomplished musician and was held in high esteem by her friends. Mildred had been a patient sufferer for the past three years and was cheerlul with all her suffering. Acting upon the advice of Dr. W. H. Bush, attend ing physician, Mrs. Rockwell accom panied Mildred on Saturday, May 7th, to the Sanitarium where she passed away. On Sunday morning a very serious operation was performed. She rallied from the operation and was get ting along as well as could be expected and Mrs. Rockwell returned to Em porium, on Monday afternoon, know ing that everything was being done for Mildred's comfort and care that could be done. Mrs. Editlia Howard, of Williamsport, was in constant com munication with the Sanitarium. Mildred continued to improve until Wednesday morning about nine o'clock when she suddenly took a change for the worse and from that tin-e con tinued to fail until the end came at three o'clock on Thursday morning. Mrs. Editha Howard, daughter of Mrs. Rockwell, accompanied the remains to her home at Emporium on Thursday afternoon. The funeral of the re spected young lady was held from Em manuel Episcopal Church on Saturday afternoon, at two o'clock, the Rev. J. M. Robertson, Rector of the church officiating. The Choir of the Church rendered the favorite hymns of the de ceased, she being a member of the Choir. During the services at the church the Choir rendered "Lead Kindly Light" and "Asleep in Jesus" in a very impressive manner. A solo, "Thy Will Be Don®" was sung by W. S. Sterner. Rev. Robertson's remarks were very appropriate to the occasion. The Union Friendly Society, of which deceased was a member, attended the funeral in a body. Most beautiful flowers were sent to the home from friends and relatives of the deceased. Interment was made in the Rockwell family plot, in the Newton-Wiley Cemetery. The casket bearers were Messrs. Russell M. McQuay, Guy S. Felt, John T. Howard and Moses Harris. C. W. Rishell had charge of the funeral. Out of town friends in attendance at the funeral were Mrs. Editha Howard and daughter, Mrs. Carl Rothfuss, of Williamsport and Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Yeagle, of St. Marys. V FBEINDEL.

Her fond parents employ ed every known remedy in hopes that she might out-grow the ailment but all without avail. Edna was a bright chilu and until recently of very robust health. Her death is indeed sad. The PRESS will miss the dear, cheerful and hHppy child who came to our office once a week regularly ever Bince she was a little girl to purchase a PRKSS for their grand-mother, Mrs. John Gayney, who for many years always tent a grand-child after her PRESS al most as soon as it was issued. The hffiicted family have our deepest sym pathy, as well as all acquintances. New Powder Plant Starts To-day. Mr. Geo. P. Jones, general manager of the Cameron Powder M'fg. Co.,with offices in Emporium and works at Wy side (Sinnamahoning) commences act ive operations to-day with about forty employees. This makes five dyna mite plants in this county—three at Emporium and two at Sinnamabon ing. Cameron county is now consid ered headquarters for high explosives, a larger volume of trade comiug here than to any other single county in the United States. Four of the plants are owned almost exclusively by home capitalists, while the other is owned by the DuPonts, of Wilmington, Del. While years ago accidents were fre quent, of late years the modern plan of building and equipping these plants are more safely constructed. Business Change. Our good natured and genial friend, Mr. Richard Kelly for many years con nected with the hotel business in Em porium, has purchased the City Bak ery, so successfully conducted by Mrs. C. G. Schmidt for twenty-one years. Mr. Kelly has taken possession and hopes to add many improvements, to meet all demands of the trade. We wish him much prosperity. Mrs. Schmidt, has retired, we [are pleased to know will continue to reside in Em porium, where she is greatly respected and has proven herself to be a good business lady. A Fast Ride. Last Monday, Hon. Joßiah Howard's new 60 H. P., touring car made a lively trip to Austin, with Mr. Andrew Brady at the wheel. In addition to Mr. Brady the party consisted of Messrs. Chas. L. Butler, A. A. McDon ald, Fred Seger and H. W. Smith, of the Hotel Warner. They made a pleasant trip over but coming back was a hummer Our friend Smith re mained at Austin evidently Bmelling a mouse. They made the run to Em porium, via Keating Summit, in forty six minutes, with Col. Brady at the helm. That was going some and while Mr. Brady is a rapid driver he always keeps his machine well in hand, knows the road and don't get rattled—even if his companions do. Chas. Butler, mine host of Commercial Hotel, said to a PRESS reporter, "I have ridden in a great many auto mobiles, both here and elsewhere, but never in a finer car than this. Talk about flying machines, this puta them all in the shade." Accepted Position. It is rumored that Mr. C. H. Cordie, a former chemist for the Emporium Powder Company at this place, has ac cepted the position as chemist for the Cameron Powder Mfg. Co., at Sinna mahoning. "Jim's" many friends at this place will be pleased to hear that he has decided to return to Emporium. Cedar Shingles $4.50 per thousand at B. Howard & Co's. More Burglaries. Burglaries are of such frequent oc curence in Emporium, lately, that we actually almost failed to mention the fact that Stephen's hardware was enter ed last Thursday night and a quantity of goods stolen. The thieves entered by aback door, after boring a hole large enough to admit an arm to remove the bar across the double doors. The work was evidently "spotted" by the thieves for they knew just where to bore. The brace and bit were borrowed (?) from Emporium & Rich Valley R. R. shop. Quite a large number of expensive knives, razors, etc., were taken, valued at SIOO.OO, or more. Very evident that all thievery pulled off here ia engineer ed by the same gang, who will soon have stock sufficient to establish quite a store—unless they are sent on a voyage down the river. Cold Feet Again. The Independent evidently does not want to know what constitutes "cold feet," in spite of the fact that he has been terribly afflicted with the malady daring the past and present—in fact he don't know whether he is going or coming, grooping in the dark, as it were. Capt. Barclay is not a candi date yet if he was the ludependet says in one line that he is "honest and brave," he must have been when he voted for those awful (?) gang bills. If Hockley can tell where he is at it is more than the readers of his sheet can. Surprise Party. A surprise party was tendered G. W. Gross at his home at this place, last Thursday evening, May 12th.
