BURGLAR GETS 1
Of Unexpected "Warmth at tho Hands
of W. H. Keogh, a Pleasant
FIVE SHOTS WERE FIRED
At tho Fleeing Man, and Twice He
?Was Seen to Tall?He Escaped
The people of Wheeling's cast-oC-lo\vn
suburb. Pleasant Valley, were treated
to an exciting ten minutes shortly before
midnight, Saturday, n-hen five
snots rang out upon tne atmospnere
and created the greatest excitement
and consternation. All sorts of thoughts
were conjured ufc by the unexpected
fracturing' of the quietness so charac-' J
teristic of Pleasant Valley, and aa a j
consequence there was much hurrying
to and fro to learn what had happened. <
"What had happened can be briefly re- j
lated. Mr. W. H. Keogh? manager of
the Wheeling Bradstreet's office, was
awakened byb the noise of a burglar
attempting to enter a chicken coop on
; his premises. Having been made a
victim of midnight prowling on numerous
occasions In the too recent past, the
gentleman had decided to give the next
unbidden visitor as warm a reception
, as he could devise. Looking forward to
this coming, visit, Mr. Keogh had provided
himself with a shot gun, and his ?
colored man of all work, Lemuel Johnson,
had been similarly armed.
Softly raising the bath room window,
Mr. Keogh proceeded to open up a brisk
lire on the chicken fancier. Two shots
1 were enough to stop the enemy in his
i mad carcer?in other words, the fellow
proceeded to jump the nearest fcnce.
Mr. Keogh and Johnson started in hot
pursuit and got in three more shots,
after which the fellow disappeared in
the darkness, but both of his pursuers
are contldent he was wounded, as he
was seen to fall twice. A colored family
living at the rear of J. H. Kirk's
residence, saw the fellow pass near
their house along the creek bank, and
declared that he was limping.
So far, the name of the thief has not,
been ascertained, but if his wounds are
serious he will not be able to hide his
There have boon so many small rob- :
borles at Pleasant Valley that the res- (
idents ef the suburb are talking of i

Steubenvllle Gazetto has tho-following: ^
A telegram came to the McDonald '
family Saturday morning conveying the j
news of the death of Samuel McDonald, j
afWnshlngtin City at 7 a.m. It caused .
genuine sorrow here, ns the deceased *
bad scores of friends here, and the sympathy
of friends goes out to the members
of his family In this and hour. His
death draws a veil over the scene
which Is now closed forever, and over
which continuation of life would have
meant more sorrow for friends. Samuel
MncDonald wns a son of the late Asso.

nnd a man taking an active part in pollties.
No family In our city enjoys a
higher place In the estimation of our
i citizens. As n child In school the men,
tul ability which he displayed afterward
In departmental work was evl:
danced to a marked degree. "When
twelve years of age ho had mastered
high school mathematics and algebra.
Ho went out In the Civil war at an
early age, and at Its close was appointed
to tt place In the departments at
Washington through Secretary Stanton,
where he rose to he chief of division.
During Cleveland's first term he was
dropped for offensive partisanship, and
was the only one to bo so relieved from
. this county, because ho had the record
of always coming home to vote, while
1 others stayed away or kept qulot as to
: whom they voted for. For this reason
i when Harrison was elootod he was very
t quickly re-appointed, having taken high
rank under civil service, and he hold
his position through Cleveland's second

hearted man. who was generous iu a
