Thp new law compels all children under 14 years to be off the streets by 9 o'clock, unless accompanied by a parent or guardiau.

A second of fense will mean arrest and the children and their parents will be compelled to pay a fine. Whistles at each end of the city and In the heart of it gave loud warning, blowing for several minutes and they could be heard all over the city. The authorities are confident there will be hut little violation of the law, the two weeks' notice given having been suffi cient to warn all the parents and child ren. Missing Girl Found.

She was persuaded to return to her home and arrived here late last night. The girl says 9he rau away because of ill-treatment accorded her by her step-mother, but tho latter denies that Rose was ever given reason to complain. After the girl disappeared her uncle, Sandy Chipano, was suspected of being implicated in her going away, and he , was arrested and placed in the borough lockup. [lis release was ordered yes terday by Chief of Police O'Donnell, who refused to hold him in the absence of any proof that he knew of the girl's whereabouts. Death of Conrad Hoch. Conrad Hoch, a Civil war veteran, died last night at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frank Hontz, Birkbeck street.

C. B. Coxe Post, No. 147, G. A. R., will attend the funeral. Crescents Win Again. The Crescents played all around the Gordon basket ball team last evening and won by a score of 28 to 12. The game was hotly contested by the visit ors and had the locals not played ball at all times the result might have been different. The first half ended with the score 14 to 4 in favor of the Crescents. The second half opened with terrific playing and passing and the audience became enthusiastic. The spurt of the Schuylkill county boys was short-lived, however, and they succeeded In scoring only four baskets, while the locals had seven for the half. The points were 14 to 8. The final score was: Crescents, 28; Gordan, 12. Davis had one basket, O'Donnell and Jacquot two each, Welsh three and Nowak six.

Brady has met with one of those opportunities that come to but few —and for which we all are anxiously looking. The play is one of the greatest dramatic successes of the last quarter century, and has made its fortunate owners not only rich* but recognized as standing in the very front rank of theatrical man agers. The play tells a story so simple and yet so powerful, that it appeals to every body at once. The pathos however is only one side of the picture, for the quaint Now England characters who ilit about the stage provide plenty of the element of humor to relieve the tension and give opportunity for hearty laugh ter. The tears and joy follow each other like the sun and showers of springtime, and in the end the benign influence of justice done and virtue rewarded, soothes and satisfies like the green of a peaceful landscape. X X x "My Friond From Arkansaw," which will be at the opera house tonight, is another of the successful character plays that are taking the country by storm now-a-days. This play gives us a picture of life in Arkansas; showing the different types of individuals that are to be found in that locality. Any one that is at all familiar with the people of Ar kansas will readily understand that if the characters are properly drawn thoy can not help but be interesting when presented upon tho stage. Mr. Robert Sherman, the author, has fulfilled his mission in writing the play, for ho has drawn characters true to life, people that you meet every day in Arkansas. He has woven a strong plot around these people and introduced much nat ural and wholesome comedy, thereby making this drama one of the strongest plays now before the public. X X X Manager McMonamin has secured for Monday evening the beautiful rural and rustic drama. "One Night in June," in which W. J. Holmes will bo seen as Silas Pevey, an honest Vermont farmer. In the last act he will introduce bis funny specialty which has made millions laugh from Maine to 'Frisco. Tho play is full of pathos, sentiment and comedy. Many new specialties will be introduced by tho several members of the company.
