Lancaster,' Vo., July 7.-The fishing! season thus far has been almost total failure. Dur'ng the months of March and April and May the tlsh trappers caught fewer edible Ush titan during any year since the beginning of tli;|! Industry, and since that time the Menhaden fisheries have done a losing business. In the four counties ?of Lancaster, Northum be rA; ltd. Aw comock und Northampton thcro are eighteen or twenty Menhaden (Fsh fac? tories, in which millions of dollars are Invested and thousands of men are employed; but up to this time it Is doubtful ? whether any one of these expensive plants lias made expenses ; Hi's season, and It Is known that Some of them have been losing several thou? sands of dollurs each week; Luring i the past week some of the steamers engaged In catciui.K llsh have been fairly successful, and It i:; hoped that' the Menhaden have headed f"r the Chesapeake. A few weeks of good llshlng will enable all the plants to repair their losses and make addi? tions to their permanent funds. The Rev. Thomas D. Wesley, re? cently called to the pastorate of tue. Presbyterian churches at Sharp's. Wharf, In Richmond county, and ?t ! Woem's, In Lancaster, was duly lr.- ! ?^tailed during the j.ast week. Dr. j Cielmore, of Portsmouth, and Or. Christian, of N'oifoik, and the Rev. II. L. Walton, former pastor of these churches, conducted the installation services. I Tho Rev. J. P. Essex, who for some ; years past has teen pastor of the j Baptist churches in and around LTr banna, haB tendered his resignation to accept a coll to th'^ Baptist Church at Blacksburg, Va, The Woman's Missionary Society of the Rappabannock Baptist joclation ? will hold Its annuel meeting in the I Irving ton Baptist Church on the 17th land ISth instants. The Rev. William j Leckhart Ball. p. D., of Riehmond, \vlll . preach the annual sermon. I The RC liev. Robert ,A; Gibson. Episcopal bishop of Virginia; will I visit the churches In Christ Church Parish during the fourth week of the] j current month and administer the j ritt- of confirmation. Extensive preparations are being j made for the three camp meetings ? that will be held this summer In the j I lower counties of tho Northern Neck. and it Is thought the attendance at 'them all will be trreater than ever ' before The Methodists hold their | I encampbent at Marvin drove, In the . southern part of Richmond county, ? while the Baptists hold two, one at j Klrkland drove, In Northumberland, i the other at Whartoh Grove, In Lan? caster. New cottages are In the course of erection and Old ones are; befng repaired, the grounds improved j and everything put In order. Tho I Methodisis are disappointed in not se? curing Bishop Kiigo as their leading, preacher at Marytn Grove this year. At. one time he had consented to come, B"ut afterwards fojtid out that his engagements would not permit him lb do so.

July 7.?When the I Democratic State Executive Committee! meetS here Tuesday evening there will be some action taken as to tho regu? lations for the senatorial primary, as well as the election of thu State chair-i man to serve the next, year Instead of Chairman A.

Poraoroy, u son of the famous "Brick" | Pomeroy. arrested Wednesday on a I charge of embezzling between $45,000 ! and $;o,oO0 from tho Citizens' Na- ? tlonal Bank ot Port Allegheny, of : which he wua assistant cashier, has I made u complete confession, govern- 1 ment oltlo'als assert. He was taken to 1 Smethport by Deputy William <1. Dick, connected with t.'nltod Stat-s District Attorney John H. Jordan's office, where he gave ball In the sum of $5.- I 000. The trial will take place nt Krle ! this summer In his confession Pomeroy blamed the automobile business for his pres- ! *nt predicament. Besides hla. work In the Cltlcns' National Hank .ho bought . and sold automobiles. He stole, ac? cording to bis confession, that he might be able to meet the demands on .ils purse mode by big purchases of . machines, expecting to replace tho . amounts when he miule the sales. Pomeroy's alleged peculation from the Institution, in which ho was a trusted employe, spread over a period of six years. Government oljlclals any it Is re- j gairded as remarkable that his thefts from t-he bank funds weie not sooner) detected, although h's method of ; "coverln;; up" during tho past three yenrs was well n'gh perfect. According to his confession as w-oll I as the findings of the Government in vestlgators, the assistant cashier con? fined his Illegal operations to one, particular department of the bank's : business. lie worked entirely with ! certificates of deposit. When a patron, deposited a sum of money with the. j ' tlzen'i National Hank for a certain period of time, wlsh'ng to draw In- \ terest, Pomeroy slipped the money into \ his pocket, made his entries In tho i bank books and marked them "paid." T. <> entry was canceled Immediately. Pomeroy's favorite amount for with? drawal at one time rras $.".00. j Durin? the first few yenrs the liabil? ity of discovery was jrreat. but three years ago an odd incident capped the j climax of P' nieroy's tune and led tn a steady -ontlnnance of the robberies. The bank's certificates of deposit came i In paid form. They were :1.000 In num i her and were numbered from IT?O to 4700.

Ah Interesting case was compromised I here Wednesday afternoon when Rev. I George Gates accepted a check for $100 in settlement of ull claims against tho Southern Railway, having entered suit a little over a year ago for $100.000. Rev. Mr. Cates is an evangelist and Is well known in the western part of this State. He bus conducted several series of meetings hero, and he alleged that on January 13, 1911, he boarded one of the Southern's trains nt Blltmore, wltft the Intention of going to Henderson vllle. He arrived at the station too 1 late to exchange his mileage for a ticket, and when he explained the matter to the conduator he alleged that he was ejected from the train In a very | rough manner and that he suiTere-d sev? eral injuries and was humiliated.

TREED FOR SIX HOURS BY BIG MOTHER BEAR Fifteen-Year-Ola uiri Suddenly r.n countered Anlmnl with Cutii In Wood*. Kinney, Minn. July 7.?While hunt? ing for n lost cow In the woods ad? jacent to her father's homestead seven mites north of Kinney. Mary Mclnhes, fifteen years of age had an experience that she will not soon forget. Misp Mclnnos had penetrated a dense thicket thinking tt might be concealed thereiu when she encountered a black bear with two well-grown cubs. Whe was almost upon the animals before, jlii! saw them. Screaming the girl scrambled ovor fallen logs and dead brush the en? raged bear coming after her. Coming to a small tree ahe grasped the lower boughs and drew herself up from bough to bouirh until out of Immediate harm's way. The bear walked around tho trunk of the tree looking up every few seconds and sniffed the ntr. It made several attempts to climb the tree but Its efforts were failures owing to the small girth of the trunk which prevented tt from getting a solid grin. The weather was very cold and an the evening wore on it became utmost Irn posalble for the girl to retain her hold on the boughs through cramps In the arms and the stiffness from cold. When dnrkness came on the parents and eider brother became alarmed at her long absence and started out with lanterns to find her calling loudly ns they proceeded through tho woods Miss McHnnes heard the calls and en? deavored to answer them but found It impossible to make even the slight? est sound probably on account of the cold and nervousness. As the search? ers drew- nearer, however, she was heard calling faintly. The animals must have been frightened1 off by the! lantern light, as nothing was seen of | them by the rescuing party. Miss Mefnnes collapsed when taken from her perilous position. She had been In the tree about six hours. McGuire's University School OPP.
