Friday of last week Charles 11.
Angers, a boy about thirteen years of
age, went into a clothing store on St.
Clair street and purchased a pair of pants
for four dollars, with the underatanding
that he should return them and get
them exchanged if they did not tit him.
The pants were taken home. and - when
the boy tried them on, found them big
`enough for his father, or '!any other
man." Saturday he brought them back
to have them exchanged and called upon
James Samuels, the clerk from whom he
bad purchased them, and Samuels of
fered him another pair about the same
size, but of an inferior quality. The boy
refused to take them, when Sam
els ordered him to leave the store
and threatened to kick him out,
if he did not go. The boy left and went
to Alderman Donaldson's office, where
an information was made against Sam
uels for cheating by fraud. lie was ar
rested and taken to the Alderman's of-
See, and after a hearing he was requir
ed to give bail for hii3 appearance at
oeurt. Having discovered that he was

have been greatly annoyed ,and bar
reseed by false . alarms of firm. Some.
times these alaruis would be sounded
three or four times in a night, each alarm
apparently coming from s different sec
tion of the city. The manner and times
of the alarms satisfied all in connection
with the Fire Department that some per
sons well acquainted with the workings
of the telegraph, were engaged in the
reprehensible practice, and a watch was
accordingly placed upon every available
point. For a time the most careful
watching failed to detect the depredators,
the alarms continuing as frequent as be
fore. Saturday night, or yesterday morn ,
ing rather, at length furnished a clue to
the matter and witnessed the arrest of
several parties for the offense.
Shortly before one o'clock yesterday
morning, as Lieutenant Frank I !ampbell,
with officers Cornelius and Lafferty. was
proceeding along Washington street,
three men were noticed in the vicinity'of
Box 51, corner of Washington and North
streets, acting in a suspicions manner.

giving an alarm. The officers immedi
ately stepped forward but were peceived
by the men who started off. After a
brisk run of several squares, they suc
ceeded in arresting them in a yard where
they had taken refuge. During the flight
Lieutenant Campbell heard the rattling
of a key falling upon the pavement as it
was dropped by one of the men. This key
was recovered and discovered subse
quently to be an exact fit to the lock on
the box from which the alarm had been
given. The prisoners were taken
knownu were two o them be
en, John Hunter to
Jaa. Brown. The third party was Edward
Williams,- a resident of Birmingham.
They at first denied. everything
the in con
nection with the alarm, but evidence
was too positive against them, and they
finally made an acknowledgement to the
the offence, but atontly denied hav
ing been previously engaged in the
practice. At the hearing before the
Mayor the circumstances as above
stated were developed, andhig the
parties fined 5o each, est
penalty of the l a w. Hunter the
amount and was released. The others
in default were committed to jail. Hun
ter is one of the most widely known and
most experienced firemen in the city,
being at present, we , are informed, Cap
tain of one of the Companies.
The arrest of these parties is More im
portant from the fact that at the hearing
information' was revealed, which may
lead to the detection of others implicated
in the practice at other times. It is
quite likely more arreate-will be made
and the matter will, ,a clue having thus
been furnished, be thoroughly sifted.

which she and her husband were sleeping,
but as one of her sons was unwell and
had been up during the night, and sup
posing it was him she heard,
she paid no
attention to the matter, but on getting
up in the , morning, she diecovered that
the visitor she heard was quite a different
person from the one she supposed it was.
Upon retiring the evening previous, two
gold watches and a gold chain, a pocket
book containing two hundred and eighty
dollars, and several. pieces of jewelry,
among which was a breastpin marked
"F" on the back,, the whole valued at
near one thousand dollars, were left ,in

saloon, on Wylie street, in'the early part
of the evening drinking, and about ten
o'clock they left and started to go home.
Whilst passing out Fifth avenue, they
met Wilson, a saloon keeper, at the cor
ner of the avenue and Lippincott 's lane.
Wilson, it appears, was acquainted with
Johnson, and asked him to go up to his
house, which is on Lippincott's lane,
a short distance from Fifth avenue, and
gotta drink and a lunch before going
homd, and insisted upon Snyder going
also. They finally consented, and
Went with 'him. After they had
taken a drink or two and eaten dlunch,
while Wilson and Johnson were talking
Snyder went to sleep, an when he
awoke which he says was a d bout half an
hour after he fell asleep, be discovered
he; had been robbed, and so informed
Wilson. Mrs. Wilson who was in the
saloon at.the time fainted, bat finally
recovered and after Wilson locked the
doors of the ssaloon she ran out and called
Two officers answered the call and ar
rested Wilson and Johnson and brought
them to the lock up, where they still re
main. After Snyder made information
yesterday morning, a search warrant was
issued and the premises searched, bat no
money was found. Wilson and Johnson
were also searched when brought to the
lock up but none of the stolen money
was found on the person of either of
Our Daily Bread
“Give -us good bread and thereahall be
no bloodshed, no Wart 3, no crimes, no
starvations.” So'wrote a great political
economist whose faith in the powers of
the staff of life was great and abiding.
.But he called not for the poisonous com
pound soldgood ow a days for bread. He
wantedbreadr and good bread alone.
Had he lived in our day he should have
attributed all the fearful looseness of so;
ciety to the lack of good bread, but
would have agreed with us, that could
big p nd g ood loaves e all be su
w pp hich arelied wit
driving all others out of the market, and
out of public estimation, there Nt ould be
better health physically and morally in
the community. Mr. Ward is a consci
entious dealer, one who frowns upon
an unhealtkful adulteration in bread
,as a crime against society , and
;who is content on popularizing his
loaves rather than extorting large
profits ' from his patrons. He uses the
finest quality of flour, adopts no drugs to
obtain light appearance, or to save labor
in the kneading, makes good, big, full
weiht loaves, and sells at less prices
than g those of any other dealer in either
city. His bakery, a model of neatness, ,
cleanliness and order is at No. 40 Palo
Alto street, Allegheny, and his wager's
are constantly on the streets iribeth
cities, delivering daily bread to patrons.
Orders are supplied on the ahorteat rms.
Bible notice. In conclusion we urge our
readers to try Ward's big loaves, and
our word for it they will never buy any
OPERA HOUSE.-4 large and appreela
Ave audience attended the Opera House
Saturday evening, on which occasion Mr:
Dond took a benefit. The entertainment
was an unusually interesting one. Mr. -
Dond possesses Went of a very high or
der, and during y
his short sta in thia
city has become a universal favorite.
We regret to learn that his connection
with the Opera House as "leading man"
will terminate shortly, as it will be a
difficult matter for the manager to ob
tain a man for the position who will ren
der such general satisfaction.
This evening Miss Mary Gladstane will

great an addition tothe already attractive
company at the Old Theatre, the enter- .

Mr. Wallace wisheens to state that the .
elegant - pulpit made by" him for the
church of of the ITnited Brethren, at Johns-
town, is all marble. Mr. Wallace informs
us that such fine work cannot be done on
slate. He has nearly . abandoned the use of
slate for mantels, as time and experience
have taught him i that marble is much
better, and that he can sell marbleized
marble mantels, pulpits, and furniture
slabs, to imitate any and all the finer va
rieties of marble in the world, at about
the same price as slate. The beautiful
pulpit will remain in his window, at 319
Liberty street, a few days longer, where
citizens are invited to call and see it, and.
also to examine his fine variety of mar
ble, marbleized marble and slate man- •
tels, in his show,room on second floor.
Marbleized marble cannot be stained by
oils, abide or coal smoke. Office and
ware rooms, 319 and 821 Liberty street.
