that is done on them is made effective.
On Tuesday of last week a fairly well
dressed man, about 28 years old, of
medium stature, with mustache, entered
the coun.iag room of the Penns Valley
Banking Co. at Centre Hall. He pre-
sented a check signed by Enoch Hugg,
a reputable Milesburg merchant, and
asked for payment of the same. It was
drawn on the First National bank, of
this place, for the amount of $197.00
payable to —— Carpenter. At the
time the stranger presented the check
he handed cashier Wm. B. Mingle a
letter in which it was stated that the
check had been drawn too late Monday
night to get it cashed in Bellfonte and
that Carpenter had to leave early Tues-
day morning, before the banks were op-
en. Carpenter said he was going to
buy cattle. The whole thing seemed
very plausible but to make everything
certain the cashier called up the First
National to ascertain whether Mr.
Hugg’s check was good for $197.00.
He was informed that it was and then
promptly paid the amount to Carpenter.
Before going to the bank the sharper
had ordered a buggy from Boozer’s liv-
ery stable in which he said he intended
to drive to Bellefonte, but here is where
the rest of his nicely planned scheme
was knocked into a cocked hat. Mr.
Boozer, the liveryman, happened to be
in the bank just when the stranger ap-
peared to get his’ check cashed, but was
called out later to look after the buggy
that had been ordered. When he found
out that the fellow in the bank was the
same one who wanted to go to Belle-
fonte he thought there was something
suspicious about it and went back to
the bank to notify them of his suspi-
cions, meanwhile he had ordered the
buggy beld until he returned to the
Upon learning that Carpenter intend-
ed coming to Bellefonte instead of driv-
ing ‘‘out into the country three miles to
buy cattle’ as he told in the bank, Mr.
Mingle called up the First National
again and found out that the number
on Carpenter’s check did not correspond
with the series in Mr. Hugg’s check
book. The latter gentleman was called
up and preacunced both letter and
check a forgery.
Fortunately it was not too late, for
while Carpenter had left the bank Mr.
Boozer’s shrewdness had detained him
in town and he was arrested (?) by
bogus constable, Frank Crawford, a
few moments later, at the instance of
Mr. Mingle. He was made pay back
the money and did it all but a few cents,
which he had spent at the hotel bar.
After doing this they left him go.
It was wrong not to bring the fellow
to justice as the probability is great that
he will continue such tricks.

heels for safety. X

thought that the Bob Cole reterred to

eral years and furthermore he was in

when women get to quarreling.”

TaUNDER SToRM.—Taking for granted
that all of our readers are not of the
persuasion that believes that ‘‘ what is to
be ig to be” we want to advise every one
of the danger through open windows
during this hot summer weather when
up frequently and suddenly ; often-times
bursting in fury before you realize their
Under such circumstances the house
is very apt to be standing wide open, as
the saying is, with windows all hoisted
and doors thrown wide. Such a condi-
tion is solely to create a draft of cooling
air which is very refreshing under ordi-
nary circumstances, but makes an ex-
cellent conductor for electricity. The
electric current is very aptto be at-
tracted by such a draft, as was the case
in Tyrone, on Sunday night. There
lighting jumped in-at an open window
in Eli Garber’s home and after tearing
thes up a little went the way it came.

favor and that dignitary ordered the author.

moval, and the brute is now with this show.

Kden in his new home at Carlisle. Read
the following advertisement, which is
taken from the Carlisle Daily Herald,
issue of July 9th, and you will quickly
agree with us when we say that the
former proprietor of the Brockerhoff

in with such a lot of honest people.
Has seen one year’s light service. This
buggy bears the manufacturer's plate of the
“Lancaster Safety Buggy Works,” and for this
reason may commend itself to some. As for
me, the machine has been unsatisfactory, and
for this reason I desire to sell it to some per-
son who has an admiration for this class of
vehicles. I will attach no guarantee to the
machine and whoever buys must depend on
his eyes for his market. I may state for the
information of purchasers that I know more
about buggies now than I used to.
