Tlicie is iiiuoh speculation as to the
cause of the drowning ns Cedar Illtt,
Just below Shohola, Is not lcgaiited as
nearly as dangcious us other points
along tho Delawaie, Ilanklns, which
the trio piissed eniller In the week, Is
looked upon as olio of the woist places
in the liver, Two young men fiom New

Monday, their bodies being found nt
Callcoon, a few miles south.
A cunoo tilp along the Delawaie Is
attended with more or less pei II, a cir
cumstance which Impressed Itself on
young Moigan, f6r a few days pi lor to
the It Iji, he hesitated and delayed mak
ing up his mind. He even consulted
some of his fi lends as to the advisabil
ity of the ventuie. The clicumstance,
however, that ills companions, Mr.
Ciane and Mr. T,ulhiope, weie pos
sessed of good judgment nnd caution,
led him to make his mind to go. The
last woids expietsed to him by ills
mother was n. chaiactcilstlcally fond
nnd earnest lcquest that he take tare
of himself.
Moigan was boin In Pleasant Mount
eighteen yeais ago, the family moving
to Caiboudalc nine years ago. He was
ono of the most popular among his
associates. He was exceedingly bright
and nn apt scholar. He was a member
of this year's class of flip Catbondale
high school and took the class honor of
the Mantle oration. Young Moigan
was a member of the First Piesbyteilun
chuich Sunday school clas taught bv
Dr. W. W. Fletcher, wheie he displayed
the same piaisewoithy chatacteiistlcs
that maiked him wheiever lie went. He
was active In athletic spoits and was
one or the contestants in the tourna
ment of last week. Ills death follow
ing so closely upon Itobei t Meaker's
casts a daik gloom upon almost the
same clicle of Mung people. It is need
less to add that tne wuim-heatted sym
pathies of the community go out to the
saddened family.

The Limit Beached in the Holding
Up Yesterday of Mis. James Allen
on Ciystal Lake P.gad Obtained
No Money.
The limit in the highway lobberles,
which have otcui led In Catbondale and
vicinity for about thiee weeks, was
touched ycsteiday nioining, when two
men, destilbed as hobo-like In their
ill ess, held up Mrs. James Allen, of
CiiPenllold, at the toik in the load at
Wedeman's, clo e to the Fallbiook and
Newton Water compnnys reservoir,
along the Civstnl lake load.
Mis. Allen was on her way from her
home in Oieenfleld to do some shop
ping in Caibondale, when she wns In
tel eppted. Two men spiang fiom be
hind bushes anil giabbed the ipIiis of
the hoise she diove Thev demanded
money fiom her. Though she was
filghtened, she was not unnerved; but
seemed to ncquiie a good deal of nei vo
dining the tolng moments that the
bold daylight highwaymen detained
her on the londvay. She had consid
erable money, but it was wisely seciet
ed on her pel son. Itesponding to the
demand, she giubbed hold of nn empty
ptnse hung fiom her bell. She
showed it to the pair, and Insisted that
this was all the money she had about
"I'll be bail; about 5 o'clock this even
ing," said Mrs. Allen, "and if jou ate
hoie, then I'll give ou a few dollars
for letting ine go. I Intend to duw
some money lioiu the bank In Cuibon
daip." The robheis, nppatenlly satisfied that
their cndeavois weie fiultless, let Mis.
Allen ileum t.
When Mis. Alien leached tills tlty
about ! o'clotk, she leported the hold
up at n stoie, wheie she made some
puithnses. She was a ti ine neivous,
but otheiwlse showed no sign of her
tiylng expoilence.
Mis. Allen's deseiiptlon of the men
tallies eaetly, as to height, with tho
pair who committed thn Dundatf stiee:
lobbeiles on Iiiennun and Miller. Ono
was tall and heavily built the other
was undei sized. Both woie old, worn
and dli ty clothes.
Mis. Allen bought a levolver, befoie
leaving Caibondalo on the letuin tilp,
und dpi hired she was loady for any
one who might icpeat the morning per
loimnuie. Mis, Allen was a former
lesldent of Caibondale. Her husband
is famlllaily known as "Dadgei" Allen.

His Memory Honored at Knights of
Columbus Services Eulogy by M.
T. Burke.
For the second time within a month,
the Caibondale council, Knights ot
Columbus, honoicd the memory of a
member who had been garnered fiom
its milks within that time.
I-nst night it was the late Hon. Wil
liam Morrison, a former mayor of Cat
bondale, nndp n Knight of Columbus,
who was conspicuous nmoug those who
worked so hnid for tho institution ot
the Caibondale council, and for It's per
petuation after the spi ending of its In
fluence. The exercises took place In the new
home of the Colunibultes on South
Main avenue, the first held tlieie. The
attendance tilled the hall to the doors.
The oration of course, was the feature
of the su vices that particularly refeued
to the departed faithful knight. This
was deliveied by Hon. M. T. Buike,
who was closest of any of the members
to the deceased. His was a warm
eulogy, but which, however, did not
abound In fulsome flattery of Mr. Mor
llson. It was an earnest, kind hearted
tilbule thnt bespoke tho feeling of the
01 a tor.
Mr. Duike piepared the eulogy with
11 clear explanation o the origin and
petpetualion of the thoughtful custom
In tho Catholic chinch of playing for
it's departed dead, tiacing tho practice
to the old testament.
Coming to the deceased ho said that
Mr. Moirlson seemed to have taken for
his guidance the motto:
"To thine own self, be tiue, and it
must follow as the night tho day,
thou cans't not then be false to any
To these sentiments, he lived faith
fully and his life was an exemplification
of what they contained. He was faith
ful in ills love to his home, he was
ardent to his fiiendship and was iIp
voted in whatever position in life ho
might find himself. Whether as the
chief executive of the city or ns dis
charging the least important act of a
day's labor during a busy life.
Mr. Burke said that the deceased was
full of human natuie, and the child
like simplicity of his character showed
Itself so pleasingly In his devotion and
attention to little ones. His patiiotlsm,
too, was bi ought out.
