who was living at Thompson's house in
Lancaster twp, while Mrs Thompson
w?:s away in June and July, 1903.
At adjourning time last evening the
jury brought in a verdict finding
Thompson guilty of adultery.
The case of Commonwealth vs D W
Gill, who lives in the old Stone House,
on the Mercer road, ia on trial. The
charge is cruelty to animals During a
dispute about plowing a ditch on the
roadside last September, Gill is alleged
to have jabbed a pitchfork several times
into a horse belonging to Jas Donagby,
bis neighbor.
A special term of court for the trial
of civil casts has been fired to commence
Monday, Jan 23.
The case of Commonwealth vs George
A Dunlap has been settled.
A week or so ago residents of Chicora
are reported to have been complaining
to the Human Society agents that Tony
Phillips, an Italian fruit dealer, was
starving his hogs. Later a warrant
was sworn against Touy for violating
the liquor laws. Constable Mills went
to serve the warrant and Mrs Phillips
knocked him down and beat him with
a club. She was arrested and is under
bail for a&b. Monday, Mills brought
Phillip-? to Butler and lodged him in
jail, The constable had arrested him
Rfter chasing him three times around
the race track at Brook viHe, Pa.
The grand jury investigating the Sib
ley corruption charges made a special
report, Monday, recommending indict
ments agaiust three former County
Commissioners, of Venango county,
charging them with the violation of the
laws on contracts for bridges and build
ings. The indictments were at once
prepared by District Attorney Mcßride,
who presented them to the grand jury,
and true bills were returned in all three
The indicted ex-county commission
ers will claim the grand jury was one
day too late in acting on their oases.
They assert while the bridge contract in
question was not signed until Dec. 12,
1902, the resolution awarding the same
w:ts adopted the day before,the statutes
of limitation thus barring criminal ac
tion. It develops that up to 18 months
ago no commissioners in Venango Co
ever complied with the statute which
Black, Thomas and Plimpton are ac
cused of violating. Its existence seems
to have been unobserved by every coun
ty solicitor since 1«70. including Judge
Criswell, Hon J H Osmtr and other
prominent members of the bar. *
Has William Brown complied with
the sentence of the court in ordering!
him to abat« a nuisance* That is tho 1
question which brought the town coun
cil, board of health, some of the doctors
and several other prominent citizens of
Harrisville into court Friday. Last
September Brown was returned by the
grand jury for maintaining a nuisance
in the shape of a slaughter house on his
property in Harrisville. Mrs. Caroline
Morrow, whose dwelling is near the
slaughter honso, was the complainant.
Brown plead guilty, paid the costs
and said he wouid abate the nuisance.
Mrs Morrow claims ho did not. and
that the stench from the slaughter
house forced her to move from Harris
ville to Avalon. Brown was haled into
court on a rule granted to show cause
why he had not complie-l with the sen
tence. The borough oflicialt, were di
vided on the subject, gome of the board
of health and councilmen swearing that
Brown had abated the nuisance satis
factorily, and others that he had not.
The people of the town have taken
sides on the case and the bad blood en
gendered almost eqnals the bad smell.
Judge Gal breath did not r under a de
cision at the hearing.

, Girls Will Be Girls—Dec 19.
Persons who are in the habit of ar
riving at theatrical performances from
half an hour to three-quarters after the
beginning of the entertainment, miss
one of the most charming features of
• Girls Will Be Girls" which comes to
the Majestic Theatre, on Monday, Dec.
19. The featnre in question is R. Mel
ville Bakor and Joseph Hart's dainty
love song. "And That Little Girl Is
You," which is sung with excellent ef
fect after a manner devised by William
A. Brady. The tenor and the soprano
sit on a bench during the dnet, and at
the last chorus, the other young women
tip toe upon them from all directions.
A word should be said concerning the !
chorus, which is industrious, intelligent I
and more than ordinarily handsome.

Monsieur Beaucaire —Next week.
There seems to be a very marked de
sire on the part of theatre patrons to do j
more than ordinary homage to the gen- j
ins of Creston Clarke, whose appearance j
in Monsieur Beaucaire is announced for |
next week at the Gayety. Not only do |
the lovers of uplifting dramatic pur
pose appreciate Mr. Clarke's ennobling
aims, bnt they recognize the splendid
talents which he undoubtedly inherited
from John Sleeper Clarke,
and from his uncle, Edwin Booth.
