kept tho village or Wuymnrt quaran

down of Fred Woodley, a young man
who attended school In Wtiyninrt.
Woodley Is sick at his home in Alco,
Damascus township, Wayne county. Ho
went home 111 about n week ago. Dr.
CuscUer, of Nurrowsburg, who was
called to attend him, diagnosed Wood

called Into tho cuso to watch its pro

in His Store on Church Street.
Was Hiding Under Cash Drawer.
The Boy Arrested Has Been in
Various Scrapes Before.
Hubert Ilrennnn, of South Main
street hilt, a lad not more than fifteen
years old, was caught hist night rob
bing the grocery stole of C. X. Seaman
on North Church street.
Hrennan was accidentally discovered
In the store by Mr, Seaman, himself,
who returned to the store about 9
o'clock, to balance his cash. When he
appionched the cash drawer, tho pro
prietor noticed the lad almost under
his feet. He was trying his best to
draw himself back tinder the counter,
where the cash drawer whs located, in
oidor to escape notice. Mr. Seaman
nabbed thp youngster. His pockets
were filled with cigars and some sweet
meats. If-left undisturbed it was his
Intention to tackle tile cash drawer,
w hich would h:tve 'yielded good results
as the day's rcceijit were there.
Mr. .Seaman marched the youthful
burglar out of the -tore, and meeting

Hrcnnun gained an entrance to the
stoie in approved burglar style. He
sought the rear of the building and af
ter surveying tlie ground, decided on
breaking a window as the most effec
tive means. lie smashed a pane,
breaking enough glass to admit his
small body. As there are no tenants
close to where he cracked the window
the noise of the scattering glass was
not heard. Once inside, he made for
the tilings that were mo't attractive to
him, tobacco and sweet meats, stuffing
his pockets until the bulged. The cash
drawer was about to be tampered with
when Mr. Seamans came on tlie scene
and brought about a climax that was
wholly unexpected and unlooked for by
The boy had nothing to say and did
no whimper when Mr. Seaman and
later Patrolman Bell took him in
charge and locked him up.
Brennnn has shown thieving propen
sities for the past year or more. He
has been associated with a crowd of
youngsters who have broken Info sev
eral stores, making away with it load
of toysTvand sweets. Tlie police look
upon Biennaii as the leader of the
gang. In fact his companions poached
on him as such last summer when tho
fair store was robbed. Brennan was
arrested at the time, but, with the oth
ers, he was allowed to go on the prom

would be corrected and regulated by
Several weeks ago Brcnnan ran
away from home, going to Wllkes

business being largely credit, he found
It Impossible to realize on his debts to

The assignment was made to C. N.

George James, son of John P. James,
of Honesdale. The Scranton Tribune
said of him tho other day," etc.
