A HATCH OF llt'IlOLAIUKH,
Thieves held high carnival In Calnwis?non
Saturday night hsl, and the iuhabltsnts of that
town nro very naturally somewhat excited.
No less than four phces wefo broken Into by
burglars but In nono was tho plunder obtained
of great value, llnrdei's hardware; storo was
ransacked but nothing carried awny. In
Smith's hardware store tho thieves stole (over-
nl revolvers and a small amount of money.
They found about a dollar and n half of looio
change In Gilbert & Kline's store. An en
trance was forced into the ticket cfiico ol the
D.invillc, llazttton Wilkcsbarro It. II. bul
tho cxpealallons of the marauders were disap
pointed as no money was found. Catawltsa
will need a larger police forco If llieso depre
dations do not ccatc. Tho authorities should
keep n sharp watch over suspicions characters
who are found lounging about iho streets and
ascertain whero they pass the night. Trnmps
beyond number nro prowling nround tho coun
try and It Is well to guard against their at
tempts to plunder.
On Monday n iglit last the post-allico at ltupert
wn; entered by thieves, who obtained access by
prying open n shutter. They madonnunsucccss
fill attempt to force open tho safe and then rilled
the money drawer, but secured only eighty
cents in cash. I hero were several dollars in
another drawer but this the btirglai's overlooked.
The mall matter was not disturbed, A few
nights before, ibe store of I. II. Seeeholl. In Cat
awissa was entered and an attempt mado lo drill
thesaft; nnd it is thought that tho samo burglars
committed iho ltupert robbery. Two tramps had
been lounging about llic office during tho day,
and they departed on the morning train. Posii
bly they were the depredators.

Last Sunday morning, somo unknown miscte
nuts attemptid to destroy the town of Shamo
kin by sprinkling coal oil on several buildings
nnd liter, setting them on fire. So far as the tie
strucliou of tho town is concerned, the attempt
was a failure, but tho losses aggregate many
thousands of dollars, not estimating thue caused
by the Interruption of business. Fortunately
no liyes were lost, though there were some nar
row escapes. During the firej thieves were de
tect) d in robbing a store. It is difficult to
conceive of a crime moie frightful or more de
serving of llio most seyero ptinihmenl. To
wilfully and nialicicusly place in j.-opardy the
lives of hundreds of sleeping human being, is
n detd so atrocious ns to deserve unlversnl ex
ecution, Tho destruction of Milton and the re
cent attempt at Sbnmokin woul I seem lo call
for a revision of ibe law rrgarding arson. The
punishment for such nn oflenca should be the
rumens for murder in the fir.-t degree. Tho
man who deliberately takes tiie life of another
is not so dingtrous to the community as the
dntardly scoundrel who endangers tho lives o
scores of helpless men, women and children,
Tho frequency ot these attempts to burn whole
towns hns created a throng feeding that some
thing should be done to protect the people.
It is generally Lelleved in Sbnmokin that the
file was the work ol a gang of tramps who in
fest that neighborhood. While it may lie af
firmed that many rlluncos are imputed to
tramps of which they are guiltless, it is equally
Hue that these reckless wanderers havo been
convicted of numeioiu outrages cau-ing damage
to properly and occasionally loss of life.
What to do with these vng.ibonds is a queftion
not easy of tolutior, bul if they are caught in
the net of starling ncoiitljgratinn, it may chance
that (he problem, s) far as the perpetrators nre
concernci!, will be spec any anil summarily
Let tho Legislature pass a law making urson
a capital crime ami, after a few incendiaues

Although we have, by our Large Assortment, gained somewhat of
a reputation aa being Headquarters for Fishing Tackle, we have
never had the stock as complete as wc have this year. There seems
to be a growing demand for finer tackle. People are not satisfied
with the old stiff pole, line and hook; a little practice with a tly rod
and fiies, rapidly cultivates a taste for scientific fishing. If at first
the catch is not so great in number?, tho pleasure in tho manner of
taking more than repays tho loss To meet the demand wo have a
fine assortment of Irout and Bass Flies, Eods, Keels, Lines of all
kinds, Snell Hooks, Baskets, etc. Flies, etc., selected especially for
these waters, when requested. Call and look dver our stock.
