Wednesday morning and examine the
Wallace farm nearby. About 8 o'clock
that day the stranger again drove up and
they at once went to the Wallace farm
where they saw a man wiih a field glass
viewing a landscape. He stated that he
was the agent for the farm and was look
ing for a purchaser who had the ready
money to put into it. He a~ke<l, however,
SIO,OOO for the place. Montgomery told
his friend that this was a very reasonable
price for such a good farm and advised him
to purchase it. Put one obstacle was in
the way for the consummation of the
transaction, and that was the fact that the
first stranger had only $3,500 with him.
Nothing abashed, he asked Montgomery to
loan him $0,500 and take a first mortgage
on the farm, which Montgomery agreed to
do. They came to Kittaaning when
Montgomery drew $G,500 from bank and
then went to where Montgomery lives.
Suddenly tho agent for the "Wallace farm
appeared with a telegram for the pnrchas
er calling him to Pittsburg. Hastily pull
ing a roll of bills out of his pocket he
thrust it into a box and told Montgomery
to put his ST»,r,OO into it. and then tho box
would bo locked and entrusted to Mont
gomery overnight, when they would meet
him again anil complete the sale. Mont
gomery consented easily, and a box sup
posed to contain the money was handed
him, while tho two men at once got in the
buggy and made their e.-vape. Montgoni
cry never suspected he could be Dim II am
med and so went all the way to Ford City
beforo he began to think of the strange
method of procedure. He called for a
hatchet and breaking the box open could
find only a stone. Then ho gave the alarm
but by that time the men were faraway.
A reward of S3OO has been offered for tho
arrest of the swindlers, and $T»00 for the
recovery of the money. Tho following de
