PAGE FIVE. THE LAKE COUNTY TIMES 11 ii ! f: Telegraph New3 by Direct Wire from All Over Indiana Newcastle, Ind., Dec. 24. A Ftory with a moral for women has developed here. The story deals "with ahsent m!ndedne?s ot carelessness, and the lesson drawn from it is that people who posses valuable clothes and wish to keep them should not throw them on the bargain table at a rummage pale. Fair members of the Christian church held a rummage sale in the basement of the church, and it was well patronized by persons of a saving dispdritfon, sometime called "bar pnin hunters." All articles were "marked down below cost" ;Sho Found u "Heal Ilargain." One woman who recently bought a cloak from a regular storekeeper for f20 attended tho rummage Pale, and, being warm, she took off the cloak and thoughtlessly laid it on a counter that was covered with articles for sale. An other woman, a "Iwirgain hunter," en tered the room and, peeing the nice new clonk on the counter, said to her self: "Here's my opportunity to get n real bargain." She wished to buy n cloak for a friend, but did not care to pay a high price. The "saleslady," new to the business, and not having examined the stock, sold the cloak for To cents, and the purchaser took her 'bargain" away. Then There AVas Hysterics. Half an hour later, when the care less woman who laid the cloak among tho "bargains" was ready to go home, e'.ie found it had disappeared. Then there was dismay and excitement in the church. Some of the amateur "saletdadioa" went skirmishing in a hurry, but it required an hour's time to find the "bargain" purchaser, make tho necessary explanation and return the cloak to the hysterical owner. BEDFORD MEN IMPRESSED Police Believe There Is Something In the Confession of the Man Berger. Bedford, Ind., Dec. 24. The police of Bedford now believe there is some thing in the confession of the man Bergcr, in jail at Goshon, that he killed Sarah Shafer, and that a man named White paid him $Trf for doing it. It is admitted for the first time that the detectives searched for White three years ago, following him to New Or leans and other cities, but losing all trace of him.
