REYNOLDSVILLE, PENN'A.. WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 20, 1909.
Paul Jacobs, Agent For John
O'Hare, Was Relieved of
Watch and Cash.
ASSAILANTS HAVE ESCAPED.
The moBt daring holdup and robbery
committed about here Id recent years
occurred on Wednesday evening, when
two young men assaulted Paul Jacobs,
agent and collector for thn DuBols
Co., and robbed htm oF C257 In caeh
and a gold watch valued at 145.
The holdup occurred at about 0 40
o'clock. The victim le a representative
of the O'Hare Wholesale Liquor firm
of Reynoldsville, which does much
business among the foreigners in the
section In and about Sykesvllle. He
had been collecting and taking orders
among the foreigners Just above the
brick yard and had started to the
station to catch a street car at.Sykes
vllle for DuBols and while walking
along the yards was accosted by two
burly looking gentlemen, who Btepped
out in the road in front of him.
The highwaymen asked him for a
cigar and Mr. Jacobs banded each of
them two. While be was doing this
one of the road gents asked him if he
had any money and upon being assured
that hlB prospective viotim had but
enough to take him to DuBols on the
street car, the Individual started to
finger around his pockets and Mr.
Jacobs resented this action by knock
ing the fellow to the ground with a
blow in the face. The other had se
cured a position behind Mr. Jacobs and
knocked him to the ground, where a
tussle ensued between the victim and
footpad, who did the talking. During
this Mr. Jacobs was struck over the
back of the head by the third man and
stunned for a moment. He revived and
received two more blows, probably with
ft rock, and was again stunned and
while in this condition the men relieved
him of hU roll and the watch, which
was valued at 145. The viotim re
covered himself just in time to see

the men disappear in the bushes over
the side of the road.
Jacobs was quite badly injured dur
ing the affray, but managed to catch
the next oar to DuBols, where his
wounds were attended to. He notified
the officers of his experience and they
at once got busy on the case.
The local police are of the opinion
that tbe job was done by either Sykes
vllle or DuBols men who were ac
quainted with the victim's business and
who knew he was oollectlug In that
vicinity a tbat time. The offloers ac
cordingly expect to be able to appre
hend the guilty parties within a short

town at the time tbe holdup occurred,

Is Your Family Reading "Worth While"?
So much of ourrent reading Is merely
entertaining at best that the question
naturally arises, Is it worth while?
Your sons and daughters are bound to
read something. They hunger for
stories which take them into the other
half of the world the world of adven
ture, of valor, of fortune-making. Tbe
problem is to give them such read
ing without putting into their hands
the literature that Is either silly or de
moralizing.. The editors of Tbe Youth's
Companion believe that a periodical
can be made entertaining and yet
"worth while,') and The Companion is
conducted on that theory. And that is
one reason why more than half a mil
lion American families read it. The
paper is safe, but not dull. Its tales of
adventure illustrate the advantages of
fortitude and self-reliance. Its stories
of character lay stress on the truth that
right conduct Is never a mistake.

Buying Timber Lands.
According to the Marlon Center
Independent, the B., R. & P. railroad
company Is buying up a lot of ties
throughout that section, one man of
East Mahoning having taken a cootract
to furnish 10,000.
The Independent believes that the
company will construct a huge plant
at Cloe for tbe treating of ties to a
creosote bath, which It has been
proven prolongs their life considerably.
Tbe soarclty of timber has made the
tie question an important one with all
railroads, and while tbe railroad oom
pany will give nothing out on the sub
ject, it is probable that such a plant
will be built at Cloe.
