Advanture. THE POLICE A1Z IN A QI7AMT. Entrance to the DuPont School on the Kennett Pike Effected Friday Night and $6o Worth ot Property Stolen. The Police Depart moot has boon work robbery since Saturday morning which iu joint of carelessness and juvenile methods outrivals any burglary over com mitted In or near t his city, during Friday night the DuP on the Kennett Pike oity limits, In* Some time mile beyond tho I *<31) worth of property carried off, blackboards and books disfigured with vulgar remarks and oKscenu drawings, li is for Mieso burglars, whoever they may be that the police havo thus far Henrdn-d in vain. Wheu the school was dost d at f> o'clock, Friday afternoon overvthing was in order, but when the jauiior entered tho building Saturday morning he found books and slates scattered s broken into :r the floor, window sills covered with dirt, black boards bear ing obscene pictures and remarks too filthy to be repeated. At first he believed the work to bo that of boys but investiga tion revealed tho loss of four unabridged dictionaries, money from teachers' desks after locks hud been picked,pocket knives, umbrellas and pieces of wearing apparel, ho concluded that tho work hoys and Is of the same mind the police Iv. While they admit that the pranks may be those of boys they cannot under stand why boys would ' want dictionaries and school books. As disposition could be made of them only under suspicion, and as tho vicinity knows of strange books, the veisiou of the public department that tho work was committed by men is given the more credence. But with the abundance of testimony lu the handwriting boards and iu tho books the authorities believe it will be but a short time before 'the guilty parties will be apprehended and whether they prove men or boys will have uo significance as they will be p rose oil tod to the full extent of the law. There are six rooms in Ihe school and •very one was visited by tho thieves. Iu tho room of Prof. Spade the burglars evi dently spent every board appeared Indecent pic aud sentences. Everything was topsy turvy. In the rooms of Misses Lena Mc Laughlin, Mao Ilersoey, Emma Hamilton and Anna Beeehor a like cundlti fairs existed. The teachers' books u taiueil vulgar remarks and as a quouco many of them will have to be de stroyed, which will increase the loss to a much larger amount.

I have met many visionaries who have threatened to revolutionize the cable toe by their telephonic triumphs. An Italian inventor experimented ou ono ! of our Atlantic cables, and I had tho honor to assist him. He brought a complicated machine, which he exhibited and diluted with all art Inventor's enthusiasm. What, did I think of it? With diplomatic caution I said, "It might work I" In the wee small hours, when the cable Was "clear," this affable Italian nobleman and myself took possession of the "string" and worked at tiro invention like Trojans. So tne times the signals reached tho other end, sometimes they did not. Ills sur,*r»<r was as great as his knowledge of cable* He swore In Italii In French, and plin •'goddam."

Dailey will be the attrac tion at the Opera House this evening when he will present his successful by John J. McNally, entitled "A Good Thing." Mr. Dailey's abilities as a comedian are too well known to require any special mention at this late day. He is original and unique, and to a bright and broezy personality ho adds a natural ness of manner and happiness of spirit that are Infectious. They serve always to keep his audience iu good humor. His significant gestures and qualutnos* of ex pression are also peculiar to him. and lie is utterly unlike any ono else on the stago; ho is, lu fact, quite iu a class by himself. As he ts a prime tavorite everywhere, It must undoubtedly be a good class. There Is a breezy suggsstiveness iu the title of his new farco which excites pleasant Mediations. are supplied in abundance by exceedingly clover company. Among tho well known people In tho organization Peter F. Dailey, Flora Irwin, James T. Kellv, Charles J. Stino, Wm. Barry, Jr , O M. Scott, Arthur Earlo, Joseph Swlok nrd, George Lynn, James C.

Walker, Edna Elsinereand Jessie Clark. of "Miss Philadelphia" will be theattra tion at tho Grund Opera House on next Thursday Evening. ' Miss Philadelphia" wnilo a travesty Is not ashamed of a plot or ruthor a little story. Tho Interest of tho ieco centers around William Penn and is descendant William Penn, Jr. The latter is a very lively, up-to-date, young ; the blue blood of whoso veins does not prevent him from seelugand enjoying life In a very democratic manner. Weary with tho fatigue of a night's frolio.be falls into a deep sleep. In his dream the ghost of his famous Ancestor, the elder Penu comes vividly before him. Hi* statue ou tho tower or New City Hall Building takes into itself life, uiul stops down to earth to seethe sigh I s of the city by the Schuylkill. Two hundred years have mode a vast. diiTorenco in the city since ho and tho Indian smoked the pipe of pence ill yours gone by, in fact, he Is completely iosoiu the mazy whirl of the up to-date town; therefore ills descendant tho youu f or Penn prefers Ills services ns a guide, 'ogethcr they see ; ho sights which affords consistent opportunity for the Introduc tion of the many song-, dances and spec ialties with which the travesty abounds. Young Penn is in love with Miss Sprln gallon, whose gi (ireful charms t ml typical loyalty to her Quaker home and Puritani cal ideas have given her tho non do pi of "Miss Philadelphia". She reciprocates the affection of tho reckless Penn, Jr., but strongly objects to his wild, halrita. His brief acquaintance with his Illustrious oestor works wonders for i ho young and while not ready on tho instant to abandon his old habits, sets him to moral izing, and while iu .his happy frame of mind, lie wakes from his sleep to find it alia dream, but the dream has accom plished Its mission, and he gains the heart and hand of ".Miss Philadelphia." Tho elder Penn In tho meantime 1ms been led a very lively gait by his young descendant, and comes to the conclusion that tho Philadelphia of to-day is not suited to his Puritanical notion and ideas.
