DOCTOR HELD OP
By Burglar Who Secures $100
of His Money and
Scotland, Sept. 7.—Dr. Arner, a
prominent local physician, had aa in
f'irssting experience with a bold burg
lar, who mad* his escape after secur
ing about $100 of the physician's
money. The burglar entered his loom
while be was sound asleep, but the
moving about of the intruder awak
ened the phTsician, who in the dark
ness was able to distinguish the form
of the burglar as he was searching for
plunder. Not having a weapon with
in reach Dr. Arner was unable to force
the burglar to throw up his hands.
Upon noticing that the physician was
awake the burglar fled from the room
and house, aad lr. Arner, in his night
clothing, started in pursuit as toon as
he had urocured a shotgun. Dr. Ar
ner chased the fugitive to the rear of
one of the business bouses, where he
shot him twice. The night was dark,
but he lieves he saw the fellow st tg
gei uk though one of the charges bad
taken effect. Losing sight of the burg
lar, Dr. Amu returned to hid apart
ments to dress, when he made the dis
covery that the burglar bad stolen his
pant-), containing a pocketbook "in
which theie was about $100 in money.
Later a fuitber search was made for
the thief, but no trace of him could be
found. The pants and empty pocket

Lake County Fair Abandoned
At a meeting of tbe board of direc
tor® of the Lake Conntv Agricultural
association yesterday afternoon, the
fail for this year was declared off.
This lias bean brought about by many
things which the directors decided
should b? adjusted before holding an
other fair. The association has l)een
attempting to hold fairs in tho past
without a sufficient number of stock
holders and insufficient capital. Dur
ing the summer cominittseH have been
soliciting stock sales among the farm
ers of the county and have been very
successful. This work has been ex
tended late into the seasm so that the
directors have not had opportunity to
plan successfully for a fair this fall.
Hence, it has been decided as good
business principles to abandon tho fair
this year and make preparations for a
fair next year that will be a credit to
A movement is on foot also to1
change the location of the fa:r, bring
ing it nearer to the business center of
the city. This is deemed advisable to
provide a place for holding the winter
farmers' institutes. It is planned to
move the present buildings to a new
si e and enlarge the art hall to a size
sufficient for the accommodation of the
far-ners' institute. This is an excel
lent pian and will maet the approval
of farmers and business men generally.
The directors will continue their work
and have everything iu readiness for
the tair next year.
