An Unusual Affair at Campmeeting. the William Osborne, Jr., and Miss Mary Etter United In Marriage by Presiding Elder Vaughan. Some days since, the Gazette came out with a sarcastic notice to the effect that the "rustic journalist of The Re publican" tried to "scoop" by fake marriage notices, etc. It was well writ ten and one of the best ideas immagin- able, if carried ont to a finish, to cut the rustic dead, but, alas, yesterday evening at 6:30 p. m. William Osborne, Jr., was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Mary EHer, under the campmeeting arbor, by the presid ing elder, R. E. Vaughan.

He came back in a verv few seconds in an excited and agitated frame of mind and made the startling announcement tnat ne naa been robbed.

Mr. Plattner Secretes the Money In What He Thongrht Was a Secure Place. There seems to be a coterie of clever housebreakers operating in Phoenix, and from their modus operandi they i are evidently old-timers in the business, for the manner in which J. A. Plattner's house was robbed about 1 o'clock yes terday morning indicates that the house had been "spotted" and every detail on the premises carefully noted by the tbief or the plural. Entrance was effected by pulling out the nails which fastened the wire screen to a window fronting on the street. The window was partially raised and the operator had no trouble la getting inside. Mr. Plattner and his wife sleep out side a few yards from the side of the house and about 1 o'clock Mr. Plattner was awakened by his wife who said that some one was in the houae. He raised up and could distinguish the glimmer of a light inside. He first thought it to be the reflection of an electric light but his wife insisted that some one was inside. He partially dressed and picking up a hatchet made his way cautiously into the house by the rear. . But the intruder must have heard a suspicious sound for when Plattner arrived in the sitting room the place was empty. He lit a lamt and ascertained tnat it was no mvtb some- bod v had been inside. His trousers which he bad left bsfore retiring haug- ng to a knob of tte dresser, were in the middle of the floor and upoa ex amination he found his gold watch was gone. A Colt's revolver that was under the washstand was also missing as was also about $80 in money that had been hidden in a corner behind an easel and a bunch of coral. Nothing else in the room was disturbed for the intruder evidently knew where to look for the valuables. When Mr. Plattner closed his harness shop the previous evening he had about ) in money, the result of his dav's sales. It was too late to deposit it in the bank, so he took the monev home in a sack. He entered the sittingroom, which overlooks the street, and in looking for a place to put it noticed the bunch of coral behind the easel in a corner. He laid it behind the coral, thinking it would be safe until morning. Although the room itself was partially darkened, anybody on the outside could see every thing being done very plainly, and it is Plattner's opinion that some one wag watching his movements A few nights previous to the robbery Mrs. Plattner heard somebody trying to get in the front of the house, but for some reason or other the thief departed. The Planners nave a very vicious doe that is turned loose in the yard at night and it not safe for anybody to go near him in the daytime, and it Beems very enrioua that the animal paid no atten tion to the robber while he was forcing an entrance through the window. Mrs. Plattner bad of late noticed a man who passed the residence several times until she grew suspicious of the actions of the man. It is no doubt the same person who robbed the house. MOURNED BY MANY. Funeral of WInthroo Sears, Late County Recorder. The funeral of the late Winthrop Sears was held at 4 yesterday from the residence of F. H.
