Marlenvllle has sgain been visited by a heavy fire losa In tbo burning of tbe large department store of David Mintz at an early hour yesterday morning. Shortly after 2:30 o'block guests at the Keystone Hotel discovered the lire and quickly gave the alarm, but when theoit Izens arrived at the conflagration tbs whole inside of tbe bnilding waa aflame, and entrance from any quarter was Im possible, and tbe only available fire-tight-ng apparatus at band a couple of chem ical engines was Inadequate to cope with tbe seething furnace Inside. Tbe structure was the largest store building In the county, occupying a space 40x150 on tbe corner of Walnut and Spruce streets, two stories high and of solid brick. Its cost was at least $25,000. It was erected In 1902, shortly after the great fire that wiped out the entire busi ness portion of tbe town and many of its be t homes, Mr. Mintz bad done an Immense busi ness since occupying tbe new store and it was tilled from cellar to garret with mer chandise of every description. Not a single article was rescued from the burn ing structure. When the roof fell in tbe brick walls, exceptiug part of that on Walnut street crumbled and fell, leaving only a mass of ruins. The amount of leas on building and stock Is only conjecture ss yet, but is thought to be well up to the $50,000 mark, with something like 30,000 Insurance in the H. A. Shlpe Agency. A frame struc ture near tbe main building used as a floor and feed store was saved, after about f 1,000 worth of tbe contents bad beeu removed. How or In what part of tbe building tbe Ureoriginated is unknown, Mr. Mintz, as Is bis custom, was at the store at a late hour and knows there was no evidence of fire when he left for bis borne to retire for the night. Wben be was aroused from bis slumbers and reached the store be was determined, in his excitement, to euter the building, but was dissuaded by the cooler heads. Tbe loss of this elegant block is a ser ious blow, not alone to tbe owner, but to tbe business Interests of the town as well, and whether Mr, Mintz will rebuild is not yet known, but it is hoped bs may if even on a less extensive scale. His prop erty Interests in the town are quite ex tensive and it is thought this fact may in duce bim to put up another store build ing. ! - The only other damage sustained was by. Editor Pickens of tbe Express, whose building on the opposite corner suffered to the exient of about 200. September Court Was Short. Tbe regular September term of ciyll and criminal court practically came to a olose on Monday evening. Owing to tbe Illness of counsel in tbe several civil cases all of these were con tinued until the November term, with the exception of that of the Forest County National Bank vs. Vail, which resulted In a nonsuit, and all tbe or i in i u a I cases being of a trivial nature were disposed of in short order. Subpoenas In divorce were allowed in tbo cases of Antonio Donatio vs. Dova M. Donatio, and Joseph Gregory vs. Frances Gregory. Philip Wolf and Joseph Hinderer were appointed appraisers of the widow's al lowance in tbe estate of Aaron Fenster maker, of Tionesla township, deceased.

Sentence was suspended upon payment of costs, and tbe defendant committed to the care of his parents, subject to the supervision of W, 11. Uoou, probation officer, GRAND JURY IlKPORT.
