ATTEMPT SAFE BREAKING.
Burglars Attempt to Loot Coun
ty Treasurers Office.
Few people in Orangeville have
known that two attempts have
been made to rob the county treas
urers office, the last one being-very
acts occurred several weeks ago
the matter was kept secret in hopes
that the culprit might be captured.
Id both attempts the burglar gained
an entrance into the office and the
last time the outer door commbina
tion to the safe was unlocked and
the inner combination considerably
battered with a chisel but without
success. All of the work was evi
dently done by some one thorough
ly familiar with pafes and most
likely a professional safe cracker.
Since the first attempt Treasurer
Rice has been careful that no
money of any consequence is left
in the safe and the combination is
changed every week,
watch is being kept ou the buildiDg
and as an extra precaution a num
ber of extra lights have been pat
on the outside of the court boase.

vice president, Clarence Lanning

L. C. Kerr, who recently pur
chased the L. J. Dimick ranch east
of town, is preparing to go into the
chicken business on an extensive
scale. He is now building the
necessary sheds and bouses and
another season will find him ready
to supply s reasonable demand.
At present poultry and egge are
scarce articles in this county and
during the winter season have to
be shipped in from the outside.
The enterprise will be a valuable
acquisition to the country and can
not help but be profitable.

Many Bricks Being Planned
For Burnt District.
While it has been a month siuce
the big fire, parties owning proper
ty in that district have not fully
decided just what they will do in
regard to rebuilding. 1| seems to
be definitely settled to put up brick
buildings and an agreement may
be reached within the next few
days whereby work will begin this
fall. Joseph Basler, who had one
of the best buildings in the block,
reached here this week from Pen
dleton aqd expresses a desire to
begin at once, providing those
owning adjoining properties will
do the same. W. A. Hall, Judge
Ailshie and Frank Hogan are
agreeable to this and an agree
ment to that effect will probably
be signed today. There is a gen
eral desire to join walls where pos
sible and thereby save cost, but it
requires considerable time to decide
upon plans and size of buildings to
It is not known at this time just
what will be done with the lot
where the Jersey House stood but
there is a strong probability that
another and larger hotel will be
erected on the site, and the public
generally hope to Bee Mr. Reed
again installed as landlord. An
other week will probably find
things definitely settled, and one
thing sure, another year will find
Orangeville better and more
attractive than ever.
