The Town Council passed an or
dinance iorltulding the riding of bi
cycles on the side-walks, making it
necessary to use a lcll in daytime
and a lantern after dusk. The pro
vision of forbidding thcridingon the

roads are in good condition, but the

fine nn lie collected for riding on
side-walks when the streets are im
passable for bicycles.

Last Tuesday night three maskcl
roblntrs, without ceremony, lxddly
broke open the door of Captain
liewis Miller's residence two miles
east of Middleburg. They lunged
oiK-n his sleeping room door on the
first Hoorand liefore the captain could
get out of beit, the burglars flourish
ed revolvers, fhey sand-bagged
him and under a jM-nalty of death
eoniiellcd him to opeii his safe.
They secured from the safe 52,
$21 of which lielongedto a traveling
jew, Joseph (Jetz. The othermoney
of Captain Miller's was made up of
rare iiis, family relics for many
generations preserved and handeil
down as heir looms. They told the
captain that as he was a dealer in
railroad stock, they thought he had
more money, else they would not
have annoyed him. They took his
horse and buggy and drove down to
J. 1''. Walter's where they exchang
ed the old-fashioned high buggy for
a buck-hoard, then drove to Shamo
kin Dam where they left the rig.
Mrs. Miller and her grand-child
were up stairs. 1 here is a strong
suspicion that at least one, if not all,
are from the very ncighlorhoo
where Capt. Miller resides.

KhITou Post: A better spirit pre
vails among the boys here now than
for a long time. We are all well,
but in addition to that comes the
news that we are tostart for Porto
llico within a win k. We are all
tired of this country where there is
no real duty to perform and no glory
to win. This morning we broke
camp ami moved three miles north
of where we were. Waterat the old
place was very scarce and we had to
walk two miles to take a bath
We would rather have liecn niovet
to Porto llico at once but this is oik
of the fortunes of war.

There were 8 hams, all kinds of

The cook reports that at the first
two meals the eomjKiny disused
of a half a cheese, a dishpan full of
pickles, thesamequamty of smoked
Ix'ef and twenty-seven quart jars of
fruit and jelly but as the hospital is
already overcrowded we have limited
the issue for each meal to five quarts
of preserves.
When these provisions are all
used we must get down to dry bread
The stores must all be moved
from camp. There are four shows
on the ground and all are good ones.
V hen I write again I hope we will
have definite orders to moved to the
