Easton, July 22. The boldest rob
bery ever committed In the Lehigh
Valley took place In tho Easton
National Hank at high noon to-day.
Tho bank ia a handsome structutu,
in the very heart of tho business sec
tion nf the city, and has double doors,
which stood wide open to-day revealing
the Interior to passers by, while the
large plate glass windows were swuug
soastogivean unobstructed view of
the counting room.
It was thought that robbery in such
a place woulu be impossible, and yet
$1000 was spirited away in a Hash.
Three men were engaged In the a Hair.
First n well dressed mall entered tho
bank, aud goingto thedlscouutclerk's
window asked "What is otir name?"
The clerk answered "Hixler."
"You are the mau I want to see,
then," said the stranger. "I represeut
tho Bixler estate of Germany, ".and
then ho proceeded to confer with Mr.
Bixler relative to a fortune left in the
old country for Bixler heirs. After
some conversation he left.
A few minutes after lie entered a
mau stepped to tho teller's window and
addressed Chief Bookkeeper Frauk
Sletor, who was serving in the
1 absence, at dinner, of Mr. Jacob Holt,
u.. nc,i..,.i m ui. ......
uc-ept?80 which he proffered, and
hold It for n note which would shortly
full due in tho bank, Mr. Sletor told
him that it was not the custom to do
business in that way, as tho man kept
no account at tho hank. However, ho
could open an account if he liked.
While saying this, Mr. Sletor was
0 Hinting the package of money. He
louud it to contain but $78, and told
the man he should lake It back to
wherever he got it aud have it made
right. The stranger got Mr. Sletor to
count again and then saying he was
satisfied that thopackage was short, he
left tho bank. He had held Mr.
Sletor's attention about three minutes.
A few minutes later Mr. Sletor
missed a package of $1 bills which
shortly before he had noticed in a
safe which was inside of the money
vault in therearof tho counting room.
William Hackett, tho cashier, returned
from dinner at one o'clock, aud Mr.
Sletor Informed him. An investiga
tion was at ouco made, aud it was
found that a package containing $1000,
mostly iu 1 bills, was gone. The
package was bulky, and how the thief
got it out unobserved Is a mystery.
Unlike nil other illusions the exhibition

Assault on a Polish Woman.
George Colson, 20 years,of Mahauoy
City, was arrested last night, charged
with attempting au assault on Mary
Yetsco, a Polish woman. The latter
was picking huckleberries on tho
Broad Mountain Saturday when Col
eon suddenly knocked her down, but
was prevented from committing a
further crime by her countrymen, who
heard her cries aud came to her
assistance. Colson made' his escape,
but was captured last evenlug.

Whon about two hundred yards from tho
red bridge, oast of this town, the onginn

Tho car was detached in cjiargo of a
brakoman and anothor brakoman stood at

to rocoivo tho balanoo of tho train.
As tho detached car passed under tho
bridgo tho brako chain broko and tho man
on top of the car lost control.
The grade from tho bridgo to tho crossing
is quito heavy and tho releasod car was
n'tvon additional spood every few yards.
Tho onginoor took in tho situation at a
glance and signalled tho brakeman at tho
switch to allow the runaway car to follow
his online. McCarthy thon put on a full
hod of stoarn and started westward at a
fifty-mile gait, blowing constantly as ho
sped along for a eloar track.
Tbo freifjht car, with tho, brakeman
clinging to the brake, followed on tho same
track at a speed of ovor forty miles an
McCarthy sped through town, sounding
tho alarm, and tho railroad was eoon linod
with thousands of people, who wero unable
to understand the situation. It was a
thrilling race and thoso who knew the cir
cumstances wore sure that it would end die-
as trcusly. But McCarthy, tho engineer, is
a man of good judgment and nerve. Ho
stood at tho lovor like a hero, running
ahoad of the runaway ear like tho hero on

Tho runaway was ono of the most excit
ing events over witnossed on tho local
branch of tho railroad. Had tlio runaway

into tho yard of tho Shonandoab Foed and

top of the car would have been crushed in
to a shapeless mass. Had tho ear bon

would have beoa tho result. It would

only one method to avoid tho two evils,

A False Report.
In somo unexplained nunncr a report
was originated at an early hour yesterday
morning to tho eiroct that by the bursting
of a dam at M. Gretna sevonty-five mem
bers of the state militia had been drowned.
Postnmstor Medlar was called out of bed
and implored to learn tho particulars of tho
sad catastrophe. Mrs. AVm. Dry, wife of a
member of the Silliman Guards, was
thrown Into convulsions upon hearing tho
startling nows. To thoso who wore ac
quainted with tho character of tho country
around Mt. Gretna the report boro its own
contradiction on its faco, but naturally tho
families and friends of tho soldier boys
wero anxious to rccoivo a moro positivo
denial. Postmastor Modlar sent a tele
gram to Mt. Oretna about 10 o'clock and
walled until 1 o'clock before tho following
reply was received : Mt. Gkctna, July
aj. Val Medlar, We f U right
Keport false, luform friends. Andrew
Comrey." Tho dispatch was posted up on
the window of t'ao post olllce, but in tho
moantimo tho fears of tho friends of tho
soldiers had been allayed. It would bo in
toresting to know who originated the
story. Tn-Weekly Record.
