the Losers

and thieving In the borough of
Marietta Is still keeping up. Satur
day night two thieves, both short
and stout, appeared at the rear of
tho home of Mrs. Emma Myers, a
widow in Center Square. She caught
them twice at her henhouse. The
first time she chased them by mak
ing a noise, and believing they would
return, kept a watch and they did
return. This time she gave the
would-be thieves a chase by empty
ing her revolver from the second
story window. It is believed that
one of the thieves wore struck, as
they uttered a loud cry.
Residents In tho neighborhood
were quickly awakened, and did not
learn anything of the affair until
the next morning. Several farmers
on Saturday night report that their
young chickens are missing rapidly,
and they, too, are going to keep "an
eye on the henhouses." This is the

Myers, tho two previous times they
secured several chickens.
It has been suggested that the

ance committee of two for each
ward, and at various times during

committee could be appointed and
kept secret, and to perfect the plan,
have all crack marksmen named.

cially members of the Khetol Rod

Gettysburg, Pa., Aug. 11.—Ten V•*
miles from a railroad, five miles
from a trolley car, thirteen miles
from a movie house and four miles
from a garage, St. Ignatius Church *
of Buchanan Valley, Adams county,
nevertheless continues after the
lapse of 103 years to hold its con
gregation. It's an old yellow
pointed structure, which shows no
signs of decay, though It is hoary
with the storms of hard winters.
Its dead lie peacefully round about
and some of the graves date 'way
back into the mists of the nineteenth
| century.
The Jesuits were the first priests
who opened this mission, and they
conducted it for years, riding miles
through the country and over the
mountains every week to reach
their charge. Then the congrega
tion became part and parcel Of the
Hnrrlsburg diocese.
This crowd of rural Catholics
does not go into the highways and
byways looking for amusement and
pastimes. They have them right at
home. On August 15 there will be
held the annual field mass, with
benediction of the blessed sacra
ment, conducted under a venerable
tree whose large limbs and thick
leaves make a fitting canopy. The
Knights of Columbus will supervise
the day. The mass will begin at
11.4 5. to be followed by an old
fashioned picnic. This dinner is a
very necessary adjunct, as there is
no hotel conveniently near.
The advance announcement sent
out is unique. It says in part: "See
our cameo church. She has just
celebrated her 103 rd birthday and
time hasn't written a wrinkle on
her placid brow. Come and worship
God in His temple not made with
hands. The robins will be there,
hymning, and the butterflies will
breathe their tiny prayers. The
west wind will harp a lyric that is
older than the sea.''
Father W. W. Whalen, who Is
the present rector of the ancient
church, said that August 15, the
commemoration of the Assumption
of Our Lady, will be a day of in
nocent religious dissipation in Bu
chanan Valley. "We'll turn into
churchless Druids," he remarked.
"We'll offer the great sacrifice with
out a roof, where the acorns fall.
We'll eat meat that day, though
it's Friday, just as if we'd flung off
all church discipline. Vou see. be
cause of the greatness of this feast
I of the Mother of Christ, the Cath
olic church relaxes her legislation
and we abstain from meat the Tues
day preceding, that being tho vigil
of the celebration."
