Mr. Van Thornburg's Residence
Entered, but the
Thief Frightened
Last Thursday night about a quarter
past 11 o'clock, Mrs. Van Thornburg, who
lives in the rear of Chancy & Son's store,
North High street, was awakened by
noise of some one raising a window,
in a few minutes a man entered her
room and besran to take an inventory of tfie
contents. He went directly to Charley
Gutridge's bed, who sleeps in the same
room, and began to rummage around, but
finding nothing, he started to go down
stairs, when he awoke Miss Anna, who was
sleeping in the next room. Charley awoke
about the same time and struck a light,
could plainly hear the racket the man
made going down staires, as he seemed to
have heavy boots on. He made his exit
through a window on the ground floor
which opens into the alley, where it is sup
posed he effected an entrance, and which
not fastened.
There was no light burning in the house,
Mr. Thornburg was away from home.
inside doors on the ground floor were
found open, though they were shut
when the family retired, and from the fact
a board was removed from across one
the doors before it was opened, it ap
pears that the fellow must have been well
acquainted with the premises.
Nothing was found missing, ss he had
time to secure anything before he was
frightened away. It is supposed he was
after money, thinking, perhaps, that Char
ley Gutridge had about his person the
money of Duffey's confectionery, where he
employed. Charley thinks the burglar
an accomplice, as he could not have
out of the window so quickly, had it
been raised for him.
Mrs. Thornburg deserves credit for her
presence of mind in lying still, when she
the burglar in the room, as she might
been killed, had she made an outcry.

wrote immediately on hearing these re

Indians was in the loss of some property

Bouncing a Bad Citizen.
The old Scriptural law of the sins
parents beine visited on the children
j , .
seems to be reversed in the town of S ibina,
as will be seen by the following item from
last week's Sabina News :
J. D. Gordon, father of Scott Gordon,
was informed a few days after the Manmei
sel murder, that his character was such as
to render him obnoxious to the citizens of
the community, and that the best tiling he
could do would be to make himself a little
bit scarce. Certain threats that he had
made azainst those who had destroyed
Kibe's saloon made his presence still more
intolerable, so when it was found that he
was paying no attention to their advice,
thev concluded to rid themselves of him.
With this intent, we are informed, a num
ber of them seized him in front of Grubhs's
shop last Tuesday night, and escorted him
to the Floral Hall, in the Fair Ground,
where tar and feathers and lynching were
alluded to in a manner that did not con
tribute a great deal to his comfort. Indeed,
it is hinted, that a nooe was placed in un
pleasant proximity to the coupler between
his head'and shoulders. At any rate, it is
claimed, that he was made to beg with
tears in his eves lor mercy, ana promises
such as his captors chose to extort, were
gotten from him with little trouble. This
was all thev wanted, so he was taken to the
Greenfield "pike and started off without
further ceremonv. He had previously
boasted that he didn't intend to leave till
begot read v. It seems his preparations
were soon made. Such, at any rate, is the
report. ,. - - -
What Council Should Do
for Safety of the
In speaking of the burglary of the
Grange store in onr last issue, we referred
to the police having to light and extin-gui.-h
the street lamp.-; and we now wish to
present some facts in regard lb the matter,
for the consideration of the public In
looking over the calendar for November,
setting down the time for lighting and
pTtiiKruisliinff the lamps, with which the
police are furnished by the Gas Company,
we find they are required to leave their
post of duty to extinguish the lamps at all
hours of the night, and that they were thus
engaged on the night of the 14th, when the
Grange store was burglarized, else they
might have caught the rogues in the act.
Now we contend that for the safety of
the community the night watchmen should
have nothing to do with the street lamps,
and that our Council should hire men for
that purpose, at least during the winter
season, when tramps are likely to be nu
merous and troublesome. Two night
watchmen cannot possibly attend to their
police duty and also to the lamps. The re
sult is, that under the existing arrange
ment, they must, as a matter of course,
leave the business part of town to
take care of itself while attending to the
The watchmen inform tis that they can
not extinguish the lamps in less than an
hour and a half,and in that time experienc
ed burglars could rob half a do'zeu storcs,or
even burglarize one of the banks, and then
what a wail we would hear from the busi
ness men, of "where were the police?"
when very likely they would be away out
Tiiompsonville or in some other distant
quarter of town, when the act was com
mitted, and would not be to blame in the
matter at all. Such things arc likely to
happen, and "forewarned is forearmed," or
least ought to be.
We earnestly hope that Council will take
some action on the matter at their next
meeting. Indeed we think it is their duty
do so, as our businefs men are more
heavily taxed than other citizens for the
salaries of the watchmen, from the fact
that they are the largest tax-payers.
Accidentally Shot.
James Lytle, aged abont 14, son of our
townsman, A. J. Lyte, shot himself, last
Wednesday, through the hand by careless
handling a pistol. The ball passed
entirely through his left bond, making a
dangerous and ugly wound, which w ill dis
able him for some time. The practice of
small boys carrying fire-arms is a very bad
one, and it is a wonder that there are not
mere accidents resulting from it.

South Bloomfield, on Wednesday cf last

friends o the bride in this place wish her

SOCIETY NEWS. A Pleasant Week for the
Young Folks.
Last week was a memorable one for the
young folks of our town, in the way of
sicial festivities, commencing on Monday
night with the dance given by the Misses
Patterson, and continued throughout the
entire week, in a series of dances and re
ceptions, which will he remembered with
pleasure by all the participants in after
On Tuesday evening, Mr. and Mrs. Jos.
Woodrow, of the Ellicott House, entertain
ed a party of young friends by a dance in
their spacious parlors, to which about ten
couples were invited, who "tripped the
light fantastic'' until the early hours of the
morning. Mrs. Woodrow makes a charm
ing hostess, and entertains her guests very
handsomely, while her genial, big-hearted
husband has a happy knack of making all
his gue.-ts feel at home. Mr. and Mrs. W.
are very popular with the young folks.
Thursday evening, Mrs. J. J. Pugsley,
gave a party at her mother's elegant resi
dence on East Main street, for Mr. Jno.
Buckingham, who is a guest of Col. Trim
ble's. The company that assembled was
small, consisting of only eight or ten coup
les, but was nevertheless a merry one. Mrs.
Pugsley "receives" in a very graceful and
hospitable manner, and as a hostess has
few equals, and no superiors in the "Model
Town." An hour or two was spent in
dancing, when the company repaired to
the dining-room, where refreshments were
served, to which all did full justice. Then
dancing was again resumed, and with
promenading in the halls, and the pleasant
Me-a-Mi's in the various nooks and corners
of the handsome establishment, all present
were handsomely entertained, and were
truly sorry when the time arrived for them
to pay their adieus to thefair hostess. Mrs.
Pugsley has made a host of young friends,
who can but remember her with pleasant
Friday evening, Col. and Mrs. Trimble
gave a party for Mr. Buckingham, at their
handsome home in the eastern suburbs, at
which a number of guests enjoyed a very
pleasant time. The usual entertainment
of dancing was omitted, but the omission
was scarcely noticed from the fact that
the time was pleasantly and profitably
spent in examining the works of art,- for
which Col. Trimble's home is noted, and
partaking of the delicious refreshments
served in the large dining-rooms, as well
as in conversing, and indulging in a num
ber of games, which the young folks
always enjoy. Col. and Mrs. Trimble did
everything in their power to make the
time pass pleasantly, and it is scarcely
necessary to add that they succeeded ad
mirably. The Col. is a true gentleman of
the old school, while Mrs. Trimble seem-
be naturally possessed of the rare gift of
entertaining almost without an effort.
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. M. Meek gave a re
ception last Friday evening for their son
Charles and wife of Loveland, at their res
idence on East Main street. A large num
ber of invitations w ere issued, and the oc
casion was an enjoyable one for all the
Mr. I.ivy B. Boyd and Miss Alice M.
Bell, both of this place, are to be married
to-day (Wednesday) at 1 o'clock, at tic

tations have been issued, and the aflair has
been the chief topic of conversation in so
cial circles for a week pa.-t. The wedding
will he a very fashionable one, and the
happy couple will leave on the 2 o'clock
train for a short wedding tour. On their
return they will make their home for the
present, at Mr. J. M. Boyd's handsome res
idence on West Walnut street. The best
wishes of the community attend them, and

NARROW GAUGE NEWS. Interesting Items as to How
the Work is Progressing.
In an interview with Engineer I'icard
Monday morning, we gathered the follow,
ing iiems in regard to the work on t'ne nar
row gauge between this place and Sardinia"
Mr. Ad. Kenned
of Sardinia, drove the
first spike on the ('. & M. at that place last
Thursday. Flint Kockhold says he is ttie
man upon whom the honor was conferred,
but on inquiry, we learn that it was only a
ten-penny nail that he drove in a ero-s-tic.
Six flat cars were ordered by tthgram
Monday morning from the Barney o: Smith
mantifacturiiigconipanv of Dayton. They
will be delivered at J'.atavia Junction
Wednesday, and will be used on tie con
struction train.
Four depots t n the line between here
and Sardinia are already up, namely, at
Mourytown, Taylorsville, Straightout and
Cochrane's Station. They are built of
frame, and are quite handsome.
It is expected that the track-layers wiil
be half-way between Mourytown and Tay
lorsville by Saturday night.
Frank Coine, of the Pan-Handle road,
and lately of the Westwood narrow gauge,
an experienced engineer, has been employ
ed to run the "Wliiteoak"' on the C. & M
Oilie Gould, who has fired for fid. Pother
on the M. ec C. Railroad for the past four
vcars, will be the fireman. Both are r.ow
actively engaged in their duties of running
the construction train.
The track-lnying commenced last Friday
morning, when about a haif-mi!e was fin
ished, but the work wasstopped on account
of the spikes, plates and holts not having
arrived. The work was commenced in
earnest, however, last Monday afternoon,
with twenty-five hands employed, and one
mile per day wiil be laid after the work is
well under way. The track will all be
laid into Hillsboro by Christmas, unless
the weather should be very unfavorable.
The new engine "Whiteoak," arrived at
Batavia Junction Inst Friday. She is an
eight-wheeler, with drivers 42 inches in di
ameter. She is 40 feet long, including the
tender, and weighs ICAtons. She is very
handsomely fini.-hed, and is a first-class
machine in every respect. Her capacity
was tested last week by pulling 78 grors
tuis up the Batavia grade, on the C. it E.
road, which is 1 10 fi et to the mile. She
will be able to draw twenty loaded car
over the road from here to Sardinia very
Engineer Pieard left for Sardinia Monday
afternoon to start the track-laying.
Performing Bears.
Last Friday evening three men, accom
panied by two large Cinnamon bears,
made their appearance on our streets, and
gave several exhibitions of the animal?,
which were exceedingly well trained, and
could to almost anything, except read and
write. Dancing, climbing trees, shaking
hands and walking on their hind legs w as
simply amusement fur them, and one of
them actually turned a summersault. One
of the men wrestled with the smallest an
imal several times. It was l;uip and tuck"
between them, but the nv.;n generally fell
on top. A collection v"as taken up at
each ex'nibitio-i to defray expenses.
Under Military Rule.
Two weeks ago last Tuesday night, Ser
geant Movers, of the Noble Light Guard,
was out "wooing"' instead of being at drill,
when he was surprised by an armed guard
marching in on him and escorting him to the
armory, leaving his fair one in a state cf
unbearable suspense for fear of his saiety,
she not being posted in military tactics.
Corporal Gregg was treated in the same
manner, except that he was taken from
the presence of his wife and child. This
item is a little old, but we eou'.d not think
of slighting our brotheis-in-arnis when we
heard of the circumstance.
A Birthday Party.
Editcih News : Friday, Nov. 8, 178,

Annie Ford, daughter of ourfellow-towns-man,

Annie was 'cut to the country, ostc:

The table, under the supervision of Mrs.

I sometimes think about one-half of our
voting population ought to be sent to some
Lunatic Asylum. It would seem so, judg
ing them by their actions. There is not a
sane person in our land, but knows that
"saloons" or whisky shops aieonly a blight
and curse to community, without any bene
fit, and knowing the fruits of such places,
when we give our votes in any way to
establish, support or protect them, we
be held accountable before an in
telligent world and a just God, for all the
crimes and miseries that are committal
through their influence.
I know that three-fourths cf our voters
wish there were no such places in c-ur land,
but they have not the courage to act out
their honest convictions.

Belfast, O. FLORA.
About four weeks ago your Correspon
dent had a revolving spring punch and
rivet set stolen out of his s-hop at Buford,
by a drunken, worthless character, by file
name of J im Kinzer, who claimed to live
near Bainbridge. Soon alter the tools were
taken 1 went to Hillsboro in search of
them, supposing that Kinzer would sell
otler to sett tnem to some oi toe s.:uiueis
or shoemakers there, but I couid get no
clf.e tu either thief or toids. 1 was b Id,
however, by one of the policemen, tiiat he
was an old 'thief, well known to the police
I then wrote a letter, to a Inend in Lam
bridge, requesting him to make some in
quiries concerning Kinzer. In a few days
received an answer, informing me that he
had not been about tiiere since last w inter;
that his family were living about three
mites from Bainbridge, and were in desti
tute circumstances, kinzer having deserted
them nearly a year ago, and had been
tramping arrouiid the country ever since.
I have since learned that he has two
children living with some family near
Fairfax, and as he did not go to IlilUboro
from here he may have goi.e to Fairtax,
and has likely so'ld or offered to sell the
tools to some one in that part of the coun
try, or on the read from there. The tooL
are new, I having bought them at Cii.ciL
nali in June last. Any ii. formation con
cerning them or the thief will be thank
fully uceived. The loss of the tec Is is but
small matter, and I would not wish to
occupy so much space in your columns
with the recital of so trilling an affair, but
that I wish to warn the readers of the News
against this vagabond and thief. '1 ramps
are becoming a public nuisar.ee, and some
means should te adopted to rid the conn
try of them. Every year thousands of dol
