Several Lewlstown people are anxious

a man who has been doing considerable
business In this vicinity iih general
agent of C. C. Seebold, pian and
organ dealer of Sunbury. On Septem
Iter 14, Bilger appeared at the establish,
meut of Emerson Potter in Valley St.
and made arrangements for opening an
office. As agent he did a very nice
business in selling pianos and organs.
Chester E. Stewart, who boards at the
Central House, was employed as suit
agent, and is a loiter by several dollars.
.Sales to the amount offll7..r0 have been
made and $13 of this has been collected
by Bilger. His office furniture was
purchased of H. A. Barror Reedsville,
but, it Is claimed by Mr. Stewart, this
furniture is unpaid for.
The last seen of Bilger wits last Sat
urday, when he left his office, carrying
a dress-suitcase and uccompained by
his wife. He told Mr. Potter he would
be absent for a "couple of days." When
he failed to put in an appearance this
week, a search was instituted, reveal
ing the fact that Bilger had presented
two checks drawn op Win. Russell &
Son, Bankers, one ffor $10.60 another
