Deputy Sheriff James K. Sweeney left this morning for Philadelphia for the purpose of bringing back George Allen, who is held in that city. The sheriff is supplied with all the neces sary documents to enable him to ex pedite matters so that It is- possible that Allen may be here by the time court open to-morrow morning, and if this is the case, it is most probable that he and his companion, who is also charged with the same crime, will be given a hearing at the same time. It has been reported thnt Allen has made a written confession regard ing the burglary, but this is only a matter of conjecture, as no one coul.. be found who would verify the Te port, but the fact of the matter will be known when the case comes tip in the borough court. The committee appointed by the board of warden and burgesses for the purpose of looking up the different sites in the center of the borough that are both desirable and available for the erection of the new hose house that is now contemplated being built In the near future, will recommend three sites that are suitably located, and of course will call for a big pur chase price. One of the sites, which will probably be recommended by this committee, is on Maple street and that strip of land, upon which stands the building occupied by I. Dreyer, W. K. Rlrdsall and H. J. Dunlap, has a depth of one hundred feet. It Is said that the owner of this piece of land would like to have the price set upon It through condemnation proceed ing)!. The other two sites are ou Water street and one of them is own ed by the same person who owns the property nnmed above, and the spot Is about where the store of W. G. Hard is now htcated. A price was given on this property some time ago, when the new house was then being considered. The other place that will be recommended by the committee is also on this street and is the old Con nor property, and the building upon It Is occupied by P. II. Daly. This spot seems to lie the place morn than any of the others that meets with the approval of the members of the fire company and they so expressed them selves at a meeting held some months ago. and it also seems to be approved by a number of citizens a as fit and desirable place to erect the new hose house. The owners of the property are willing to sell and the price has been set and now all that this com mittee can do is to report to the Imrough hoard and the future action of that Ixtdy will be awaited with lu tcrent by those who are anxious that Naug.ituck huld have a well oiuip jwd fire department, and the erection of a new 1iom house mean that the flirt step toward accomplishing that end. 0AKYILLE HAPPENINGS Mrs W.

The last time I was here I sat behind a post, and I said right then that I'd never come into the .place again if I think those over there might do Huh! Um-m-m! Mighty funny how all the good seats are taken before the box oft flee opens. "No, I don't want those. There's a post in the way, and, besides, the Wot sbcrname family always sit there and chatter through the whole play. Yes, there Is a post too. I guess I've been In this theater before. I wouldn't mind those, but they're right by the bass drum, and you can't hear yourself talk. "What! Two dollars apiece for that kind of show? And not next to the aisle, either. Lots of people say you can see just as good and hear better in the balcony, anyhow. Well, you cau give me those two down there. They're not as good as I'm used to having, but I guess No, I don't be lieve I'll take them, either. "Can't you lay aside those two, and those two, and those two for me, and when I decide I'll send my husband around after them? Huh? Well, I think you're very unaccommodating. What? Of course I want to buy seats. Just you give me those two, young man, without any comment of any kind. Impertinent!" Indianapolis News. America Alone Has Humming Birds. Though the art museums of Europe may have some treasures of which America cannot boast, our continent has the distinction of a monopoly of the world's supply of bumming birds, the gems of all the feathered creation. Of these there are said to be some 400 species the Four Hundred we may well call them nearly all of which are peculiar to the tropical regions. Only eighteen cross the borders of the United States from Mexico and occur only In our southwestern states. The popular Idea Is that the bummer lives only on honey gathered from flowers. This Is a mistake. The bird does se cure some honey, but Its food consists mainly of the small insects which fre quent the flowers. Some of these in sects are Injurious to the blossom, and the tiny bird fulfills a useful function In destroying them. That the hummer la Insectivorous Is also shown by its habit of catching tiny Insects on the wing, which !s occasionally observed. H. K. Job In Outing Magazine. France's Roads Best In the World.
