twelve o'cIock at the tho homo of I1I9 uncle
Mr. (Jims. 'Ihomas, on F.fth street. The
cause of his death was consumption, with
which dread dlseaso he had been afflicted
for a long time. He was aged nearly
twenty-four years and had been a telegraph
operator at tbo D. L & W. depot for near,
ly six years past. Funeral services were
held at tho house on Tuesday afternoon,

The opening entertainment in the Y. M.

pecially in broadness, richness and waimtb,

Bloomsburg Opera House, Monday, Jan
Daniel Dougherty's lecture on "The
Stage," at tho Opera House on Tuesday
night drew the largest audience that has
been In tho hall for years. Every Beat was
taken. The lecture was in part serious,
clothed in the most beautiful language, and
delivered In the impressive manner for
which the well-known orator is so celebrat
ed. There wero somo amusing talcs and
sketches thrown In, so tliit there were
parts that everybody could appreciate,
There is no doubt that all were Interested,
and if there was any lack of demonstration
it is owing to the fact that tbo subject was
one with which people who live far from ihe
largo cities aro not familiar. The lecturer
assumed that his hearers were acquainted
with Shakespearean representations on the
stage, with Italian opera, and opera bouffe,
whereas it is probable that not ono out ot
five of tho audience had ever had th) op
portunlty of witnessing any of thusc. One
cannot understand and appreciate the dif.
ference between Shakespeare and Often
bach, If he has never seen Julius Caesar,
Hamlet, Macbeth or Othello, by the one
nor the Grand Duchess and kindred operas
by the other, performed upon the theatrical
stage. Upon the whole the lecture was
admirable, but the subject was ono that is
not of sufficient Importance in itself to In
terest an audience unfamiliar with it as
presented In the large cities.

The fox chase Monday forenoon was far
"from being u success. At ten o'clock the
fox was liberated at tho foot of Main street;
guards were placed at all tho cross streets
to make tho fox keep a straight path
through tho town. When uear tho head
of Main street the fox suddenly darted
across the street and ran up the stairs
where Mr. Uosenstock formerly had his
photograph pallery. A boy followed, and
catching the fox back of the neck, cwled
him down stairs and gavo him another
start. The fox was directed up the street
toward Ltghtstreet, but soon after leaving
the turn it took a course across the Acids
Tho dogs wero to be held and the fox given
a start of twenty minutes, but this was not
done, as thoy followed on about seven
minutes after the fox. The hunters could
not get the dogs to take trail, hut ono dog,
owned by a Mr. VanLiow, seemed to fol
low, A score of hounds, setters, terriers
were urged by their masters to take the
trail, but they did not. After leaving the
turn Iho VanLlew dog crossed tho field
and soon coming upou the fox, made short
work ot tho chase. The first to arrive 00
the scene was Charles Armstrong, who
took tho fox from tho dog, but not until
life was extinct. As he reached there

Company. Almost the entire forco of work
men of tho company, numbering nearly
sixty-five thousand, quit work and demand,
ed that settlement should be made by ar

of a number of employees being discharged
from service, at Port Richmond, in Rich

were discharged had refused to deliver

the corporation employed non-union men
When tho Reading Company discharged

Company and demanded 'lie dismissal of

But many are opposed to taking so many
gifts merely to beautify tho tree or for

the children. Poor children who arc iu

I believe I will be safo in saying thai
thrce.fourths of tbo gifts there were elthpr
given by parents to their children, or by
children to their parents, or else given by
oco memoir ot a ramuy to another mem
ber in the same family. If these gifts were
given at home the children would be just
as happy .as to receive them at a church,
while the poor children, whoso parents
cannot afford to buy them much, not
knowing what other children get, would
be fur happier than going to a Christmas
entertainment and receiving scarcely any
thing. This is not only my own opinion
but the opinion of many with whom I have
The Torn Check Racket.
A very neat swindlo is the torn check
racket which is now bilng successfully
worked in some quarters. The swindler
obtains from a depositor in a bank a small
check. Then lie lakes a hlank check ex
actly like the filled ono and lays tho true
one upon the other so that the edges are
exactly even. Both checks are then torn
irregularly across, and In such a way that
the signature on tho filled check appears
on ono piece nnd the amount and payee un
the -other. Tho checks have been held
together while being torn, and ono piece
of the blank chock will exactly fit tho other
piece of tho filled check. The swindler
then fills In one piece of the blank check
with the name of the payee nnd the amount
to suit himself, takes it with tho pleco of
the genuine containing the signature ot the
blank and explains that the check was ac
cidentally torn. Tho teller flnd9 that the
pieces fit exactly, naturally concludes thai
they are parts of the same check and may
cash it unless ho happens to suspect fraud

There's a Christmas day and
a Christmas week, and in keep-

Christmas throughout the store
until New Year's Eve we have
n mind the thousands whose
work and inclinations hold them
fast and keep them away from
the city until after Christmas day.
Greetings to you all, pood
friends ! The high compliments
of the season to the busy think
ers and toilers upon whom so
much depended in making it a
jolly Christmas time. What
would Christmas be but for those
first cousins of Santa Claus who
tinted to the generous old fellow
the very things we were wanting?
Mow, then, when all others
lave been happified, come along
yourselves tor a rest. A day or
two in the city will put new life
in you. A little change from
the everyday work is a better
tonic than quinine.
When you come to the city
accept freely whatever of com
fort and convenience our store
affords. Five minutes after you
reach Broad Street Station you
are at our door. It is not ne
cessary to buy something to be
It is a good time to come to
the store. All the anxiety of
weeks of preparation and the
strain of the doubly busiest
days of the year are off and
over. Everybody has had
sleep and a holiday, and we are
all cheerier and readier to begin
anew. It is like the rest at
midday under the trees in har
vest time; we are refreshed, and
at it again with a will. There's
a plenty to see. 1 he store is
like a river at the foot of
mountain down wnose sides a
score ol steady streams are
pouring. While the outlet is
into the ocean ol people, the
daily inleting keeps everything
full and lresh.
To be sure, after the jostling
and hurrying of the last week
before Christmas, there s a lot
of things dusty and clipped
and soiled. I here are also
things that were broken in
the deliveries and returned by
customers. But then these are
put by themselves and sold at
seldom more than hall price
Whatever the sacrifice, we can
not keep anything but perfect
goods for sale. Whoever buys

in the windows and other dis
plays. There are remnants of Dress
Goods, too. The accumulation
is something enormous. You
see there's no time in the rush
to watch against remnant mak
ing. Every piece is cut, and
the balance is stuffed away.
Now comes the overhaulintr.

off they must go. The week
between Christmas day and the

While the "righting up" in
certain holiday departments
goes on with all possible zeal,
the larger part of the store is in
its usual well prepared condi
tion, offering a full stock of the
well-tried, accepted makes of
merchandise. It is worth know
ing that the fundamental princi
ples of the store are never lost
sight of. We will sprinkle the
best bargains that can be had
over all the business, but with
