Burning of Barn in Cumber
land County Followed
by Arrests
Carlisle. Aug. 4.—Charles Yingst,
William Yingst, William Kelley, the
Johnson brothers, and men by the
names of Kunkleman and Lynch, all
of Cleversburg. are in jail here fol
lowing an escapade, whiclt took
place in Cleversburg on Monday, and
which resulted in the burning of
the barn of George M. Miller.
The offenders were arrested by
officers of the State Police stationed
at Mechanicsburg and Constable
McCoy, of Carlisle. It is thought
that more arrests will follow.
The affair is the result of intense
ill feeling in the neighborhood, and
especially between the Millers and
Yingsts. Those taken into custody
are held on the charges of malicious
mischief and arson, the former
charge growing out of the fact that
the Miller house was stoned during
the day and the buildings burned at

going on for some tinie, even the
women take part. Not long ago
women of the Miller faction are re
ported to have stonned some of the
other faction while the lutter were
