The boldest rob bery ever committed In the Lehigh Valley took place In tho Easton National Hank at high noon to-day. Tho bank ia a handsome structutu, in the very heart of tho business sec tion nf the city, and has double doors, which stood wide open to-day revealing the Interior to passers by, while the large plate glass windows were swuug soastogivean unobstructed view of the counting room. It was thought that robbery in such a place woulu be impossible, and yet $1000 was spirited away in a Hash. Three men were engaged In the a Hair. First n well dressed mall entered tho bank, aud goingto thedlscouutclerk's window asked "What is otir name?" The clerk answered "Hixler." "You are the mau I want to see, then," said the stranger. "I represeut tho Bixler estate of Germany, ".and then ho proceeded to confer with Mr. Bixler relative to a fortune left in the old country for Bixler heirs. After some conversation he left. A few minutes after lie entered a mau stepped to tho teller's window and addressed Chief Bookkeeper Frauk Sletor, who was serving in the 1 absence, at dinner, of Mr. Jacob Holt, u.. nc,i..,.i m ui. ...... uc-ept?80 which he proffered, and hold It for n note which would shortly full due in tho bank, Mr. Sletor told him that it was not the custom to do business in that way, as tho man kept no account at tho hank. However, ho could open an account if he liked. While saying this, Mr. Sletor was 0 Hinting the package of money. He louud it to contain but $78, and told the man he should lake It back to wherever he got it aud have it made right. The stranger got Mr. Sletor to count again and then saying he was satisfied that thopackage was short, he left tho bank. He had held Mr. Sletor's attention about three minutes. A few minutes later Mr. Sletor missed a package of $1 bills which shortly before he had noticed in a safe which was inside of the money vault in therearof tho counting room. William Hackett, tho cashier, returned from dinner at one o'clock, aud Mr. Sletor Informed him. An investiga tion was at ouco made, aud it was found that a package containing $1000, mostly iu 1 bills, was gone. The package was bulky, and how the thief got it out unobserved Is a mystery. Unlike nil other illusions the exhibition in Forguson's thcatro, building will boar tho most searching scrutiny. 7-22-tf Assault on a Polish Woman. George Colson, 20 years,of Mahauoy City, was arrested last night, charged with attempting au assault on Mary Yetsco, a Polish woman.

EXCITEMENT ON THE LEHIGH RAILROAD THIS MORNING. A BRAKE CHAIN OF A GAR BREAKS. An Englnoor'a Raoo Through Town to Provont a Disaster. Ho Suoooeds ia Arresting tho Runaway. At four o'clock this morning the Enipiro freight train on thoLahlgh Valley railroad drawn by engine No. C37, in charge of .En gineer Pole .McCarthy, loft I'aokorton for this town. Whon about two hundred yards from tho red bridge, oast of this town, the onginn was cut loose and was run to tho Emarlck a trout crossing to allow ono of the cars to be sido-trackod. Tho car was detached in cjiargo of a brakoman and anothor brakoman stood at tho switch between tho bridge and tho crossing at which tho ongino stood, roady to rocoivo tho balanoo of tho train. As tho detached car passed under tho bridgo tho brako chain broko and tho man on top of the car lost control. The grade from tho bridgo to tho crossing is quito heavy and tho releasod car was n'tvon additional spood every few yards. Tho onginoor took in tho situation at a glance and signalled tho brakeman at tho switch to allow the runaway car to follow his online. McCarthy thon put on a full hod of stoarn and started westward at a fifty-mile gait, blowing constantly as ho sped along for a eloar track. Tbo freifjht car, with tho, brakeman clinging to the brake, followed on tho same track at a speed of ovor forty miles an hour. McCarthy sped through town, sounding tho alarm, and tho railroad was eoon linod with thousands of people, who wero unable to understand the situation. It was a thrilling race and thoso who knew the cir cumstances wore sure that it would end die- as trcusly. But McCarthy, tho engineer, is a man of good judgment and nerve. Ho stood at tho lovor like a hero, running ahoad of the runaway ear like tho hero on horseback who sped through Conematuh Valley when the Johnstown flood took place. By skilfully manipulating tho speed of his engine ho gradually decreased thodis tnnce botwoon his charge and tho freight car and, Anally, at Shenandoah Junction, whore the Pennsylvania and Lehigh Val ley railroads connect, but few feet separated tho two. A few yards furthor, and tho bumper of tho freight car was against that of thn ongino. Tho speed of both wero thon decroasod. A fow mlnulos lator Mc Carthy backed up to Emorick street cross ing with tho runawav car In charge. Tho car was sido-tracked and McCarthy pro ceeded with the balance of tho train to Mt. Carmol. McCarthy's presen eo of mind saved tho Lehigh Valloy Kailroad Company con siderable loss and, perhaps, savod many 'lives. Tho runaway was ono of the most excit ing events over witnossed on tho local branch of tho railroad. Had tlio runaway car been switched it would have crashed into tho yard of tho Shonandoab Foed and Lumber Company and tho brakeman on top of the car would have been crushed in to a shapeless mass. Had tho ear bon given a freo trnck.it is hard to imagine what would have beoa tho result. It would certainly havo been disastrous. Tuoro was only one method to avoid tho two evils, ana that was tho ono suggested by .Mc Carthy's prcsencoof mind. Columbia Park Gospel Meetings. The go pol meetings being held at twi light In Columbia Park are increasing in interest and attendance every night.

In somo unexplained nunncr a report was originated at an early hour yesterday morning to tho eiroct that by the bursting of a dam at M. Gretna sevonty-five mem bers of the state militia had been drowned. Postnmstor Medlar was called out of bed and implored to learn tho particulars of tho sad catastrophe. Mrs. AVm. Dry, wife of a member of the Silliman Guards, was thrown Into convulsions upon hearing tho startling nows. To thoso who wore ac quainted with tho character of tho country around Mt. Gretna the report boro its own contradiction on its faco, but naturally tho families and friends of tho soldier boys wero anxious to rccoivo a moro positivo denial. Postmastor Modlar sent a tele gram to Mt. Oretna about 10 o'clock and walled until 1 o'clock before tho following reply was received : Mt. Gkctna, July aj. Val Medlar, We f U right Keport false, luform friends. Andrew Comrey." Tho dispatch was posted up on the window of t'ao post olllce, but in tho moantimo tho fears of tho friends of tho soldiers had been allayed. It would bo in toresting to know who originated the story.

Tho Bittmtion atthemlnogiu this dint riot is Indeed serious. It Is known that the leaders of the mob were not miners, neither last weidr. nor Monday, Eugene Merritt leading them in each Instance. He In it Hinall merchant at lirlouville, but is said to boa determined man. lie spoke iu ruply to Gov. JJui'liBiian laH week and really treated the Governor with Indignity. Other lenders aro known and the sentiment hero Is that thoy niU3t be arri-sted and taken to Nashville, as the law provides, and punished. The miners havo appointed a com mittee to say what deu patches shall bo sent nut and what not, and this com mittee or some of it are In the (ele graph olllcos all the time and read all tho matter sent out by tho newspaper men. The committee, whether self. appointed or under the miner's organi zation, told the operator on duty at tho Key mat if no uiu not let t lem read the mefct-ages they would cut tho wires. A report has ootno from Coal Creek saying the miners declare that no troops can ue lauuoi mere. There are threats that thov will wreck tho trains or burn railroad bridges. The mou celebrated Its v ctorv hv cheering, carousing uud shooting. A lorco oi ouu men. nronenv inn nneu aud led, could subduo the eutho mob, lor tlie rioters nave no idea or oneulv facing a good force. Thoy know from ine statements made lo them Monday that the troops would not light, but very l loter feels that tho mob has made a mlutake, and that it now will ue Hummed. Wlieu the miners made tho attack on tho camp Lieutenant Chaudle, of tlie luioxvllle Klllcs.ollerod himself to tue colonel us a volunteer to light the mob with twenty men.

Li9t year a monster Biiake was seen In the neighborhood of Donnell's mill In North C.uoliim, and Its length wad variously oatlmutea by several parties who saw it at from eight to llf teen feet. An attempt was made to kill it, hut it went into n tnicictton the banks or tlie creek. Nothing more was seep of this monster snake until last 1 rlday, when miss lint ij. uobieon saw a cow, the propei ty of Mr Ahner Kchoolfleld, down and struggling, and went to see what was the matter. Imagine her surprise to see colled around tho m-ck of the cow an immemcsndke some four inches in diameter and at least ten feet iu length. Theeow was being choked lo death, und the bravo girl took hold of the snako with both hands, and, being a strong girl, she with great dif ficulty got It loose, or perhaps frightened it until it uncoiled Itself aud ran Into the tlib ket. Afieruwhile the oow, with aid from the lady, got upou Its foet uud was driven home. The Bimkewasof u brown color and showed no sinus of Ktriklug or biting, as Is common to all our native snakes, hence it is ueiioved lo be an anaconda wuicn has made lis escape from somo me nagerie.
