The Fcianton Times of this morning, in

the integrity of F. F. Kingbnry. general man
ager of the rnC' Dt "Escape from Libby"
entertainment given at the Academy for
the benefit of the Board of Associated
Charities. The article in question was un
warranted, and. from inv personal know
ledge of the financial management of the
entertainment, was wholly uncalled for,
It was only for the purpose of showing to
the Times reporter that the rumors con
corning Mr. Kingsbury's managoment of
the ''Escape from Libhy'' were untrue
that I exhibited to him the receipts in full,
given bv Mr. Kingsbury tome. Personally,
I have every confidence in Mr. Kingsbury's
honesty of purpose, and I am sorry to rim
him made a target for sensational and un
reliable newspaper writers.

Artolph Brill, a drug clerk employed
at Korn achei' s pharmacy, on Plttston
avenue, left this cily very suddenly
Sunday night and forgot to tell his elu
plover that he WIS leaving. He did not
tell any one else apparently, for his de

farewells to anybody. The fact that
lie had gone was brought very forcibly
to Mr. Kornaeher'l notice yesterday
when hn opened the safe and found
that tin- money it contained, amount

the oath drawer showed n similar con

not aware of his losses in the short

wrought out that it cannot fail to
idease and excite, and as the breathless
audience watches it unfold, the opinion
that it is the greatest meln-drama of
the ng- becomes stronger and stronger
aud universal with opinion.
