Where to Find Suitable Presents for Holiday Gifts.
Suppose we suggest a trip through our Furniture Department on the fourth floor, where you will find pieces
of Furniture of odd designs, elaborate finish, price up to a -hundred or so more of dollars, then again articles that
will appeal to you because of their everyday usefulness at prices comparatively small for like values elsewhere.
Ask the elevator boy to let you off on the third floor for the Picture Department, a gallery of rare subjects,'
many of them duplicates of the master minds, the original would be marked a fabulous price.
DEALT WITH IN AN OPINION
BY JUDGE NEWCOMBE.
Title to Fourteen Acre3 of Land
Bested on the Court's Identifica
tion of Which of Two "Outcrops of
ConBlomomtc" Formed the ThircW
Side of a Trinngulnr Plot Besenrcd
from a Large Tract Opinion by
Judge Vosburg in the Senofelder
Estate Dispute Court Notes.
J, I ,
In 1SS-', Ira K. Hartwell conveyed to
A. G. Miller n 110-ucre tract oC land In
Blakcly, "excepting and reserving how
cvr, out of the same, all that portion
within the coul measures situate In
the east corner of the above described
lot, and bounded on the northeast by
the Jacob Oakley lot, on the southeast
by the Dunlel Sherrard warrant, and
on the remaining sides by the outcrop
of the conglomerate rock, containing
about four and oue-hutf acres and
known as the OakJoy coal bed.
The piece 50 reserved was. In 1SSS,
conveyed by Hartwell to O. W. Craven
and others, under a slightly different
description, but identified as being "the
nunc land reserved In 11 certain con
tract between the party of the first part
and W. G. Miller, dated the 19th day
of December. 1SS2."
The land reserved lies tit the apex of
an angle formed by the lines of the
adjoining Sherrard and Oakley tracts.
The base of the reserved triangle is the
"outcrop of conglomerate."
The case becomes complicated by rea
son of the existence of two outcropplngs
of conglomerate, one a high ledge form
ing a practically complete base to the
triangle and endowing about eighteen
acres, and the other a not well defined
line of conglomerate outcropping, some
rods within the trlsmgle of which the
other would form a base, and not ox
tending from side to side of the tri
angle. When Miller, who owned the tract,
minus the reserved triangle, came into
court with a view of establishing title
to the land lying between the two
"bases," his prlnclpa.1 contention was
that It must have been the inner and
smaller outcropping that was meant
as the base line, because the big outer
ledge would enclose eighteen acres.
The defence was that the big outer
ledge was meant, because the other was
Indistinct and at all events did not
reach from side to side or for a reason
abl' sufficient distance to fix a line.
Judge Newcomb agreed with the lat
ter contention and granted a non-suit,
with a rule to show cause why It should
not be taken off.
Testerday the judge handed down
nn opinion discharging the rule to take
off alio non-suit.
After an exhaustive discussion of the
I'ase ho says:
"We held that there was nothing in
this case to take it out of Hie general
rule that the quantity of land mentioned
In a deed, like courses and distances,
must give way to boundary lines fixed
.by established monuments, natural or
artificial, existing on the ground. Large
vs. Fenn., 6 S. & K 488; Kreiter vs.
Romberger, S2 Penn.. 59; Pelts vs.
Gaw, 15 ibid, 21S. We further held that
the outcropping of conglomerate rock
was the boundary adopted by the. par
ties regardless of any uncertainty In
their own minds as to the quantity of
land. There was no evidence of any
line of rock, other than the one spoken
of as the high ledge, that would answer
the requirements' of the description In
question. The location of this ledge
not being disputed we could see noth
ing to go to 'the jury.
"After a careful review of "the case
we think there was no error in direct
ing: a non-suit, and therefore the rule
lo take it oft is discharged."

1 Must Take the Pledge.
James Kearney, who was convicted
several months ago of embezzling
money from the Singer Sewing Machine
company, by which he was employed,
was called before Judge Newcomb yes
terday afternoon for sentence.
"f have known you for many years,"
said the Judge, addressing Kearney,
"and it is a painful duty for me to have
lo Impose sentence upon you. If you
bad taken care of yourself, as you
ought to have done, you wuuld not have
laid your hand on your employers
money. I am inclined to give you an
other chance. If you will agree to take
the pledge and do something to restore
yourself to the place you ought to
occupy in this community, I feel like
giving you one more chance."
Kearney promised that he would do
as suggested, and sentence was sus
pended until the February sessions,

Allows Claim for Nursing.
.Judge Vosburg, In Orphans' court,
yesterday handed down an opinion al
lowing $72 out of the estate of the late
P. N. Sencfelder to Mrs. Peter Schmidt,
with whom the deceased had boarded,
for services rendered him as a nurse
during his fourteen months' Illness.
The heirs contested Mrs. Schmidt's
claim on the ground that $12 over and
above his board, which the deceased
had given her In his life time, amply
compensated her for what extra serv
ice she performed.
Judge Vosburg finds that 6 a month
for fourteen months, minus the $12
given the claimant by the deceased dur
ing his Illness, Is a fair allowance, and
directs judgment accordingly.
