"Close up at 1 o'clock" was the
order sounded from headquarters at
the Rummage Sale to-day, and just
as the echo died out a loud call toi
help came from a G. A. R. veteran
who claimed he had been robbed of
a wallet containing $llB and two
Liberty bonds. Mercer B. Tate in
stantly had both entrances closed
and locked with a view to recovering
the loot and for half an hour no one
was allowed in or out.
The veteran came to buy a pair of
shoes and was accommodated by
Mrs. Olmsted, who was working at
that counter. Purchasing a pair he
paid for them from a wallet which
he took from his hip pocket and
went away, only- to shrilly announce
his heavy loss. Police headquarters j
were notified, but when detectives
arrived they could not tind the com
plainant, nor learn his name. He
wore a G. A. R. badge and this yvas
the only identification to be had.
; A second pick-pocket tale was re
ported to police headquarters by A.
L Koppenhaver, 1926 Rwatara street, j
He said that his yvallet containing j
$75 was taken.
Though the last day. the crowd j
was persistent and heavy and the ;
gallant women clerks were about all |
in with the final rush. A neyv bunch j
of women's hats brought a flying .
wedge to that department and the j
patronage was brisk and rough, t
"The beaver on that hat alone is
worth $l." exclaimed one of the:
tired clerks to a woman who hag- |
gled bitterly for a reduction of five ,
cents. "Well, gimtne th' beaver,
then," she insisted, and got it. for i
patience was no longer a virtue.
Mens clothing did a tremendous j
buisness and yet some will be left I
!• over for the junk dealers. "I want :
1 a dark suit for my husband." shout- j
' ed a very stout woman, arriving all i
t out of breath, when it was nearly ,
closing time. i
"Hoyv big is he: what'? his size?
s "I don't know; he wears a seven- |
- 'n-a-eight hat" yvas her final appeal. I
"Gimme suntpin to lit him."
Mercer Tate, as closing hour ar- ]
rived, made a last call to get over |
!- t lie top. "All yve need to beat the
record is a little over $500," he said, |
"and -we're sure to get it." He. enu '
phusized the fact that second-hand t
dealers did not bust up this sale; •
they were all identfied and asked
to leave. The remnants will be dis- I
posed of on Monday to junk dealers. I

Camp Colt Buildings and Equipment Will Be Sold Next
Week and Famous Instruction Place Abandoned; Con
gressman Brooks Working With War Department For
(ict( ( vburg, Pa., April 12.
Although next Tuesday is the day
set by the War Department on which
the buildings and all other belong
ings of the Government at Camp
Colt are to be sold, strenuous efforts
have been made during the past week
or two by some of the people of town
to have a part of the equipment re
tained and a permanent post estab
lished here. The matter has been
taken up with Congressman Brooks,
and he has been busy with the offi
cials at Washington. It is pointed
out that there is not a permanent
army post in' the State of Pennsyl
vania, and that with the Government
interests here this would be the ideal
place for a post. As yet no anno
ment in the matter has been made
by the War Department and from
the present outlook it wuuiu seein
that army activities here are A
of the past. Miss Josephine Shultz
fell down the stairs at her home and
broke her left arm. Last October she
had her arm broken at the tamo
place.—Arendtsville welcomed one

liam Clapsadle found a large chicken
egg in the rear of her buggy after

sleep that night for thinking about
it. 1 reflected that during the. war
j I made more money than I had ever
made in my life before. I had
j cleared my debts and had bought a
I player-piano for my yvife and cliil

consulting my wife on the question,
we yvere both of the same opinion
that yve both were rank slackers
while the war was going on.
"Well, to make a long story short,
| we have $1,200 in bank that wc had
saved to buy an automobile. We
I now are going to do without an

old horse and carriage for a few
more years. We have decided to
use the $1,200 to buy Liberty bonds.
If I could find a customer for the

good one, I'd sell it and buy bonds
yvith the money."
