Week October sth.—The favorite Irish Comedian Chauncey Olcott, under the management of Henry Miller, in his lat est comedy hit, “THE HEART OF PADDY WHACK,” by Rachel Crothers. The annual engagement this season of the popular Irish comedian and singer Chauncey Olcott, week of October sth, will be even eventful in the production of a new and delightful play, “The Heart of Paddy Whack,” by Rachel Crothers, who is responsible for the notable suc cesses “A Man’s World”, “The Three of Us” and “Young Wisdom.” Mr. Olcott is under the management of Henry Miller, who believes his latest play one of the best in Mr. Olcott’s ca reer. It is filled with Irish sentiment, sparkles with wit and romantic episodes with an interesting characterization. The story is the romance of an elderly Irish Barrister who finds himself falling in love with his beautiful young ward. In it Mr. Olcott is so appealing and ten der that its development is said to be delightful. The scenes are laid in old Ireland about 1830, and its color and air of romance promise much both in production and costuming. The company supporting this popular star has been selected with the usual care of his manager and the stage equip ment will be exceptionally attractive. Matinees -Wednesday and Saturday.

Advertisement Bombs Fell Near Nuremberg Rev. Harry W. Wissler Tells of French Aeroplane Over City. Explosives Intended for Bridge. After having been detained in Germany for more than six weeks where they pass ed through the experience of having a French aeroplane drop bombs one Sun day, Rev. and Mrs. Harry Wissler re turned safely after an absence of fifteen months in Europe and are now spending some time with Mrs. C. A. Wissler, mother of Reverend Wissler. He gives an interesting account of his enforced sojourn in different cities; tells of how the French machine dropped bombs and then escaped, all to the sur prise of the Germans. The bomb above referred to went wide of its mark and little damage was done. He says, “the constant fear of being blown up by a oomb at any hour of the night or day was not very pleasant.” One afternoon as they were seated in their room talking with a German cor poral, a stone was thrown in their open vvindow. Had either of them been seat ed close to that window the result night have been serious. Where this stone came from is still a matter of con jecture. Rev. Wissler says there is evi dence that it came out of the sky, as persons on the street at that time declar ed that no one saw it thrown. The stone is now among the curios and relics ob tained by Rev. and Mrs. Wissler. A friend of Mrs. Wissler had a narrow escape from a bullet in a hotel at Nurem oerg the day after war was declared. She had been making her toilet that morning before a large mirror, when she Happened to step into an adjoining room. Just then a bullet came crashing through cite window and broke the mirror into' small pieces. The friend was so much tlarmed that she refused to remain in ne city. Rev. Wissler says, “it was a very sad ,ight to see the long trains loaded with soldiers, horses and wagons being rush 'd to the front. Some trains had huge ■iege guns attached to their rear. Ma iy of the cities had large crowds of ex iled persons on the streets. Thousands >f shops and factories had closed and persons were eager for war news. “The women are busy knitting stock ings for the soldiers, and could be seen working along the streets and alleys.” The ship on which they sailed from Rotterdam, Holland, took an extreme northerly route and had a narrow escape from colliding with icebergs. Three were seen by the passengers. One of these was very large, and with the sun shining against it, made a most beautiful picture and was the admiration of many passengers who had never before seen an iceberg. The Reverend greatly deplores the aw ful war now raging throughout Europe, but thinks it will be the crushing blow to militarism. He says, “every man, woman and child in the world is suffering either directly or indirectly from the ef fect of this war. Two centuries can not repair the loss already sustained, and eternity can never forgive the crime that has been committed against millions of men who did not care to fight, but who prayed to be left alone in their pursuit of peace and happiness.” Fighting Nineteen Days. Losses On Both Sides Very Heavy, The Berman Army (jrudually Falling Back. The terrific battle now raging between the German troops and French and allied forces in the Aisne district to the north of Paris has been going on for nineteen days, but its violence is generally held to portend a decisive result in the near future. This is the report given out by late press dispatches. These reports also state that “furious hand-to-hand fighting is going on and the losses to both armies are colossal. Even the official re ports contain a gruesome picture of thou sands of dead and wounded lying in the fire-swept zone between the two armies, and every fresh assault is adding to the ghastly litter. “Statements issued by the French War Department say that several times the Germans hurled their masses of troops against the French left wing, but in each case they were repulsed. “In the center, it is said, a heavy can nonading is going on, while between the Argonne forest and the river Meuse the allies have made some progress. “The German General staff claims the situation on French soil has not changed. Fighting to the east between the Ger man, Russian and Austrian armies con tinues. Late reports state that Galicia has been almost cleared of Austrians by Russian forces, the latterhaving crossed the Carpathian mountains, and have en tered Hungary at several points and are driving back the Austrian forces sent against them. It is officially admitted that the Russians have secured a good foothold on Hungarian soil. The activity of the Zeppelin dirigibles stretches over a wide area. Six bombs were hurled last Tuesday against two Belgian towns, and another at a town across the Russian frontier. The Japanese are drawing closer about the German territory of Kiau-Chau, in the Chinese province of Shantung. Dispatches from London Wednesday morning state that the right wing of the German army has been broken and that the Germans are being pursued by the Allies, this defeat ending the nineteen days battle on the Aisne. The report was not given out officially, however. It Always Does The Work. “I like Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy better than any other,” writes R. E. Roberts, Homer City, Pa. “I have taken it off and on for years and it has never failed to give the desired results.” For sale by all dealers. AdvertUeiusut Narrow Escape From Se rious Injury. Wheel Drops From Axle of Carriage. Last Sunday afternoon Elder John S. Weybright, in order that his wife might have a drive through the country, hitched his dark bay driving horse to his carriage and with Mrs. Weybright, and daughter Ruth and Miss Edith Spielman, started up the State Road toward Emmitsburg v On coming to a road leading to Apple’s church, Miss Ruth, who was driving, turned onto this road, and the journey continued to Mr. Harry Simmers’ farm near Apples church, and then the horse was turned towards home. When oppo site Mr. Simmers’ residence, the right hind wheel dropped off the axle. The horse frightened but was brought under control after the carriage had been bumped over the rough road about fif teen feet. Mr. WeybHght and the ladies got out of the carriage and a search was made for the tap which keeps the wheel on the axle. The tap was not found, however, and the wheel was again placed on the axle and in away fixed so it could not leave it. Thinking everything safe to continue home, all got into the vehicle. After going a short distance, one of the fenders rubbed against a wheel. Mr. Weybright got out and going to the left side of the buggy, found that the left hind wheel was almost off of the axle. No search, at thii time, was made for this tap, but the wheel was pushed on and with all in the carriage the trip was made safely home. Mrs. Weybright, who a short time ago underwent an operation at the hospital, was considerably shaken up and unnerved by the experience. The carriage was considerably damaged, the bolts holding the body to the front running gear being broken and the fenders bent out of shape. Evidently both taps were purposely removed by someone. The carriage had lot been used since the previous Sunday, and it is not known how long the taps were missing. On account of Mrs. Wey bright the horse was not driven out of a walk, and owing to this the occupants of the carriage probably escaped serious injury. Creagerstown Letter.

Men act differently under different cir cumstances. The question is, what would you do right now if you had a severe cold? Could you do better than to take Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy? It is highly cecommended by people who have used it for years and know its value. Mrs. 0. E. Sargent, Peru, Ind., says, “Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy is worth its weight in gold and I take pleasure in recommending it.” For sale by all dealers. I AdvrUsmut. Farm House Burned. Blaze Discovered Too Late To Save Structure. During Monday forenoon, fire was dis covered making fierce headway on the upper portion of the house situated on Mr. Wm. Stoner’s farm about a mile north of Graceham. The farm is tenanted by Mr. Curtis Stambaugh. His sister and several small children were about the house as usual and discovered the fire. It is supposed the building caught from sparks from the chimney. Mr. Stambaugh and neighbors who as sembled succeeded in getting the greater portion of the furniture from the build ing, a brick wall dividing the house help ing to a great degree in keeping the flames from reaching his personal effects. A portion of the building was brick and a portion log weatherboarded. On this same farm last March the wind blew down the barn and killed and in jured several cows and horses for Mr. Stambaugh. The loss to both Mr. Sto ner and Mr. Stambaugh has been par ticularly heavy during the past summer. Some insurance was carried by these gentlemen, but not sufficient to coyer their losses. To many the property is known as the “Black’s Mill” farm along Owen’screek. Toned T T p Whole System. “Chamberlain’s Tablets have done more for me than I ever dared hope for,” writes Mrs. Esther Mae Baker, Spencerport, N. Y. “I used several bottles of these tablets a few months ago. They not only cured me of bilious attacks, sick headaches and that tired out feeling, but toned up my whole sys tem.” For sale by all dealers. Advertisement. Business Locals.
