Burglars Crack the Safe in the Jefferson
Macaroni Factory Office But Get Little Cash
Three Hoboes Arrested the
There Was Not Sufficient Evidence Against Them
To Warrant Holding For Court. '
EXPLOSION SHATTERED OFFICE WINDOWS
Between eleven and twelve o'clock
last Thursday night the safe in the
office of the Jefferson Macaroni factory
in this place was blown open. The job
must have been done by inexperienced
safe-blowers as tbey put In an over
charge of the explosive. The safe was
badly wrecked. The explosion put a
Summervllle telephone out of commis
sion, tore plaster off the side of building
and did other damage. Two Italians
were sleeping in a room on second floor
of factory, next to office, and one of
tbem was almost knocked out of bed by
the explosion. The two men are not
naturalized and the law does not allow
tbem to own or have revolvers in their
possession, consequently they did not
start out to look for the safe-blowers.
The night man at the P. R. R. round
house started out to Investigate and
discovered that the explosion bad taken
plaoe In the macaroni factory office. He
reported to the train dispatcher in P.
R. R. offloe, he called up E. Wray Hunt
er, one of the proprietors, and Mr.
Hunter, accompanied by Policeman
John Spears, went to factory to Investi
gate and found that the safe had been
Instead of drilling a bole In the safe
the robbers Jimmied the knob off the
safe and put the explosive In the bole
made by the removal of the knob.
There was a tin box In the safe which
the robbers took. This box only con
tained about $5.00 in cash and a 110.00
money order. In a pocketbook in one
of the pigeonholes of the safe was over
1600.00 In cash and ohecks, and most of
the-hecks were endorsed, which the
safe-orackers overlooked. It is evident
that the robbers were frightened away,
as they left all their burglary tools, and
in their haste to get away they only took
the tin box, thinking it oontalned all
the money in the safe.
Three tramps, who had been In this
section a couple of days begging, were
arrested at Rathmel Junction Friday
morning and were lodged in Reynolds
ville look-up. These fellows had a
camp-fire just west of town, along the
P. R. R. Thursday evening and had in
their possession a ooal pick used on
locomotives, and this plok, which was
Identified by a railroader as being the
same one that the tramps had Thurs
day evening, was found In the macaroni
factory offloe, and that was all the evi
dence against the tramps and they were
given their liberty Saturday morning.
The burglars gained an entrance Into
the macaroni office by taking a light of
glass Out of the front window of offloe.
We understand that this same trio,
one of whom is a cripple, was at Sykes-
vllle the day before the safe in the B.,
R. & P. R'y station was blown open a
couple of weeks ago. It Is possible they
are the chaps who cracked both safes.

Following Day on Suspicion, But
Fall Meeting of Presbytery.
The fall meeting of the Clarion Pres
bytery was held In the Beechwoods
Presbyterian church September 21 and
22, beginning Tuesday afternoon and
continuing until Wednesday evening.
This Is an important event in church
circles, and is always well attended by
the lay members of the congregations
from the various churches who are
interested in the workings of this upper
court of the Presbyterian church
iniB meeting oi rresoytery was no
exception to the rule and a large num
ber were in attendance at the sessions
and enjoyed the hospitality of the
Beech woods people.
The first seBBionv convened at 2.30
Tuesday afternoon when the opening
sermon was preached by Rev. J. B.
Hill, of Brookvllle, the retiring moder
ator, after wh'ioh Rev. Samuel Davis,
of Seneca, was eleoted moderator for
the ensuing six months. The forma
tion of the roll showed nearly all of
the sixty ministers In the Presbytery
to be present, and more than half were
represented by an elder. "
A pleasing feature of this meeting
of Presbytery was the fact that It was
the twentieth anniversary of Rev.
Hill's pastorate at the Beechwoods
church. Congratulary addresses were
made by Revs. Dr. J. V. Bell, of Du
Bois, J, H. Cooper, of Johnsonburg,
and Rev. Hamilton, a returned mission
ary from China, who was a boyhood
playmate of Mr. Hill. Mr. Hill thanked
hiB brethren In a brief address for the
congratulations showered upon him.
The work of the Presbytery during
the past year showed an advanoe all
along the linos, especially in foreign
missions. During the past year Clarion
PreBbytery has given 17,000 for foreign
missions, a gain of 11,600 over last year.
Home missions have received $6,900,
while all the other boaras .have re
ceived splendid gifts. Brock way vllle

Interesting Reminiscence of Schools In
The Early Days Trials of Pioneer
Times have changed mightily since I
was a boy. For Instance, when I was a
boy we went to a log school house in
Venango county, warmed by a big stone
fireplace. The patrons of the school
hauled the logs to the school house and
the teachers and scholars wereexpeoted
to chop and split them up for fuel,
there being lo coal to be had. In those
days the teacher was expected to earn
his money, which was raised by sub
scription. He would get to the school
house about daylight and build the fire
and then chop wood until about time
for the boys and girls to gather. He
was expected to keep school from nine
o'clock In the morning until five o'clock
In the evening and there were no vaca
tions on Saturdays. TKe teacher
boarded around among the scholars,
taking turns of a week at a place. Often
he bad to sleep with one of the boys.
I taught a few terms of that sort of
school myself, as well as attending as a
scholar. The way some of the boys I
had to sleep with did kick me In the
stomaob was a caution.
The teacher In those days had to be
an athlete, too, If he held bis job.
Young men 18, 19 and 20 years of age
would oome to school and unless the
teacher was able to handle them his
name was "Dennis." Sometimes a hus
ky young fellow of 18 or 19 would wear
tbe teacher out and then the latter
might as well resign. j
There were not many female teachers
in those days. A woman teacher was
not considered physically able to teaoh
a school. But I remember oae woman
teacher I had, and she was certainly a
success. She was a tolerably robust In
dividual, but thinking over the matter
now it seems to me that she depended
more on ber "sand" than on her physlA
oal strength. I suppose tbe-boys didn't
fight as hard as they would have done
with a man. At any rate she dressed
tbem up, both large and small, and did
it In great shape! Many a time I have
seen her call out a boy taller than her
self and tbe manner in wbieh she would
dust the pants of that young man was a
sight worth seeing. Once 1 saw a boy
of fifteen undertake to put up a fight.
She lit on him like a hen on a June bug.
Before he had time to put up his de
fense she had his coat over his head
and he was yanked out on the floor.
She sever gave him a second to rather
himself. That coat movement gave her
great advantage and . she kept it.
Then tbe way she warmed that young
man up I recolleot It as if it were but
yesterday (sixty-three years ago.) Ho
hung out for about two minutes and
thea weakened and put up a howl for
mercy that might have been heard for
two blocks. We learned afterward tbe
boy's father had put the boy up to make
the fight. The old man wanted to find
out how a woman would behave under
such circumstances, he said. When be
learned that his boy had been whipped
good and plenty, he turned in and tan
ned the lad also.
