In Attempted Holdup Fright
ened Horse Driven by Boy
Runs Away at Gettysburg
Gettysburg, Pa., June 18.—A crate
of eggs was the loss in an attempted
hold-up on the Fairfield road short
ly after the dinner hour. The eleven
year-old son of Ira Clapsaddle, liv
ing about a mile and a half from
town, was sent to town with the eggs
and when he crossed the bridge at
Willoughby Run a negro stepped to
the middle of the road and made a
grab for the horse's head. Instead
of catching the rein he scared the
horse, which started at a wild gal
lop up the road, breaking the entire
lot of eggs. A negro was later cap
tured by Detective Wilson who gave
the name of Preston Weathers and
his home as Baltimore. He was
identified by the boy.

Make Your Own
Coffee at the Table
You Need Not Bother With a
Coffee Pot
How much more convenient It
would be if you couid make coffee
right at the table. Think of the time
gained, the steps saved, the extra
bother and fuss eliminated!
All this is possible—if you use
Hires Instant Soluble Coffee. This
was first made for our soldiers in
France, who required good coffee
that could be easily made. And so
thoroughly did Hires Instant Soluble
Coffee meet every requirement, Sti 2-3
per cent, of all the coffee contracted
for by the American Army, in the
trenches, was Hires. We could noi
supply more because our facilities
would not permit.
Hires Instant Soluble Coffee is the
dried pure juice of carefully selected
coffee beans of Java and Mocha
blend. This clear, aromatic juice is
merely converted into a powdered
soluble form. The minute you add
hot water you have your coffee as or
iginally made, and if you prefer
vour coffee iced you can have it, for
Hires Instant Soluble Coffee dis
solves instantly in ice water.
And Hires Instant Soluble Coffee
is the. concentrated juice of the
coffee bean, for by an exclusive pro
cess twice as much juice is taken
from the coffee bean as is secured
by the use of the coffee pot or perco
Because Hires Instant Soluble Cof
fee is so easy to make you can make
it right at the table, or can have a
clear, fragrant cup any hour of the
day or night.
A small can of Hires Instant
Soluble Coffee is equivalent to a
pound of the best Mocha and Java
coffee. The low price is due to the
fact that with our exclusive process
we extract lAO per cent, more juice
from the bean than you can in mak
ing coffee in the old way. Get it at
all stores.

in Suit For Nonpayment
Williamsport, Pa., June 18.
Harry McCarty, a farmer, near
Muncy, was summoned into court as
the defendant in a suit for $154,
brought by an implement dealer,

acquitted, but awarded a verdict of
$25 against the dealer.
According to the implement deal
er, McCarty owed him the $154 as a
balance on the spreader, which had
been delivered to his farm in 1917.
McCarty, however, proved he had not
ordered the machine.
In the opinion of the jury, the
farmer was not responsible for the
payment the dealer demanded, but

paid $25 for loss in crops due to the
ineffective machine.
