But the door will stand some bat tering yet, so don't be backward alioiit giving it a trial. Dastardly Attempt at Robbery. Last night a dastardly attempt at sneak- thieving of the lowest order was made at the home of Mrs. S. J. Swanson, near Jamkson slatiou. Since the death of Mr. Swans n, which occurred about two weeks ago, Mrs. Swanson'a daughter-in-law, Mrs. John Swanson of Washburn, Wis., has been staying with her, and they aee preparing to move to the latter' home, having advertised the sale of the household effects. Some time during the night the thieves entered the house and ransacked the lower rooms completely, tearing tip the carpets and rifling bureau drawers, evidently expecting to find some money hidden away. The two women were sleeping up stairs and heaid iho marauders hut were too frightened to make any outcry or disturbance. Noth ing of value was taken that they are aware of. Local talent was undonbtely Implicated in the affair, as Mr. Swanson was known in the community to be a frugal man, who would in all probablity have some money about the house. The Interest in the game of cricket keeps pretty well to the top, and about every Saturday afternoon a match is pulled off on the ball grounds. A few days ago teams captained by Messrs. Morrison and Uoward Kelly played a rather exciting game which was won by Morrison's eleven by a score of 64-311. Last Saturday Messrs. Zahniser aud Cani'ield chose sides and played a lively gamo, resulting 13-11 iD favor of Can- liuld's eleven.

The death of Mrs. Smith, widow of the late George A. Smith, who died from injuries received in the wreck at Janio- soii station last Thursday a week, comes as a peculiarly sad sequel to the tragic death of a devoted husband. The strickeu wife died of heart failure at her home on Thursday lat, just one week Irom tho day of the fatal wreck, leaving a 4-year-old son, and a babe of one week. Sho was aged 29 years, and was a devoted member of the Presbyterian church. Well, If this isn't a good one. A special sent out from New Castle says: A new swindle is being worked here by a man who pretend to be soiling canary birds. They are of a beautiful yellow and tho airent demands 810 each for the songsters, but Is willing to accept one dollar down and call for tho balance alter the bird has demonstrated its singing ability. After the supposed canary fakes Its first bath It develops to be an ordi nary sparrow. Many local families have theso sparrows caged up and are looking for the agent. At New Caslle Judge Wallnco on Thursday revoked the charters of the Vendom Club, Tuxedo Club, Majestic Social Club and the Social Union Club on account of intoxicating liquors having been sold in them.

In Picture Hocks an old church building was being removed, and it became neces sary to cut down certain shade trees in order to move the buildinir through the streets. The borough granted the con tractors the right to cut the trees. The parties in front of whose property stood the trees iu question asked for an injunc lion restraining the borough from cutting , bo trees. A teumrarv injunction was granted and upon argument, this Injunc tiou was made permanent. This makes it nlain that a boroimh cannot cut and slash shade trees at its own sweet will One of the power houses on the Heck, Coooer A Co. lease, on Cropp Mill, was destroyed by tire last Friday about noon lloiaco Walters, who had charge or the por, was filling the gaimeter, which had evidently been leaking, with oil, when an explosion occurred, and in stantly the building was filled with tlames. Horace was quite severely burned about the neck, face and hands, but will not be scarred, the burns not being deep. Charles Blum was also In the building, but singularly escaped in- iurv. Besides the lose of the power the company 'sustains cousideiable loss in the temporary shutting off of the pump ing of oil. The autumnal equinox, scheduled for Monday and Tuesday of this week, never touched us, the weather conditions being well nigh perfect on those days. It probable, however, we will soon te in the midst of the soar and yellow leaf sea' son, the melancholy days, which the poet b.s described as the saddest of the year, when it's a little too hot for whiskey and little too cool for beer. Nevertheless the glory of the autumn weather brings with it ripened nuts, the frisky squirrel and the whirring pheasant, fresh flap-jacks and honey, corn buskin's and pumpkin pies, and all sich, and who will say that these are calculated to bring a tinge sadness to the contented oul ? of As an evidence that there is some travel over the bridge at this place it may be staled that by actual count 2.12 vehicles, and 242 fist passengers, crossed the ame on Saturday last. The count was taken between the hours of seven in Ihe morn ing and six at night, and does not include the tratie that naturally would cross for the evening train, which would probably swell tho total twentv-five to filly. The count was made for the railroad com pany, and it Is hoped, now that they have discovered that Ihe travel is no mean affair, they will instruct their train crows to be more considerate of the .rights of the people, and not kee p the crossing closed from ton to twenty-live minutes at a time when pcdeslrains and travelers would like to pats over the tracks. Ixive is sometimes blind, and S'mio timcM is only a blind. Andrew Jackson McCray, of Titus- Ville, was doing jury duty at court last week, lie is 73 years old. There is nothing remarkable about either circum stance, but over 50 years ago he served oa jury from Titusville, at the February term In ls,"3, and that seems a good while ago. Mr. McCray removed to Forest county in 18t7, and was associate judge there one term. lie returned to Titus ville last year. At the time of his first ury service, he came on horseback, and there was a foot of snow on the ground. He stopped at the Crawford house, which is still standing, but will soon be torn down to make room for the now Baptist church. John Galbreath was then pre siding judge of this court, and the ses sions wore held iu the old structure which stood on the site of the prescn1 court house. Meadville Star. We had no idea the Judge had attained sucli pa triarchal years, ami don't believe it yet, judging by his youthful spirits. We once asked him his age, and if you would know what answer he gave just ask him. Mr. and M's. Leonard Afciiew and little daughter, Sarah Ellen, returned Saturday from their trip lo the California encampment of the G. A. R., and visit to friends in Oregon and Washington. They enjoyed the extensive journey im mensely, aud the outing has been a ben efit to Mrs. Aguew's health. She spent most of the time with her mother, brother and uncle, who are located at Gaston, Oregon, but she is still pleased to get back lo old Pennsylvania. Mr. Agnew was quite taken with some parts of the great west and would not be averse to making that his home. Me reports Hob.

The Kindorgarton exhibit of water color naitilinir. drawinc. toy tools, and cardboard furniture and clay modelling, was excellent.

These things were displayed against the back ground of a beautiful Nayajo blanket. The chief exhibit made by the Junior Arts and Crafts Guild were flowers and vegetables rrom their imliviuuai gardens which have been the special eare of these hoys and girls since last spring.

The llower gardens yielded a line collection of nasturtiums, sweet all sums, dahlias, pansies, bal sams, sunflowers aud rseued sailor. The value of the whole exhibit was greatly enhanced by the graceful and harmo nious grouping of flowers aud vegetables, and by tho use or great branches or oak and maple which turned the beautiful Kindergarten room into a cool green tower.
