Burglar alarm thieves Cut not turned on Telephone had no fear of detection rabbi Rev. Barron and feast and what tile event it commemorates has meant to the civilized world. Between five years ago mos of i. Sinai at and while ther received tile commandments almighty from the hands and six thousand s went up to the top the command of god. Is supposed to have of t he of the the summer Home of Joseph r. Grundy was entered one night last week by professional thieves who ransacked the premises from Collar to Garret and finally Tok away As their loot a Quantity of silverware and several articles that were valued More for their associations than for their intrinsic Worth. The family have not yet opened the Home for the summer and every door and window that is provided with a lock was fastened when they left for the Winter months. The elaborate burglar alarm system with which the House is equipped was unfortunately not connected and to this May be attributed tin fact that the burglars worked undisturbed Entrance was gained by forcing a Side window facing the nes Hammy Creek and the work seems to be that of Skillet second Story men As a Jimmy undoubtedly was the instrument used. The door Kitchen and Pant reopen Ami Access thin living rooms. The silverware which was All of the finest must have been tied up and carried away the new Silver which the family used each Day. And also some old and valued pieces that had been in the family for generations. Every Bureau and closet second floor was ransacked Grundy William e. Doron the Quot Charon of the has won another Victory. This time the department of agriculture in Washington have bowed to the mandates of the jury Man and have agreed to have an inspector at the Burlington wharf from june 15th on he to remain Active until the japanese Beetle season passes Over. The fact that the quarantine somewhat disco Moded or. Doron last year made him take a very firm stand with the government. He told them Flat and Plain that if an inspector were not furnished at this Point he would tie his boat up to the Bank during the sea in of the quarantine. Lust year or. Doron was made in a measure personally responsible for tilt inspection if the loads of produce brought into this state rom Jersey and this year he had it intention of being so handicapped. Quot what do i know about japanese beetles Quot is the Way he puts it. A if the government feels the matter is of sufficient importance to place quarantines they should also put an officer who knows something about the subject in charge to in a ice the Qumran Tim this is just what he government has signified their intention of Tir ing.

Draw biddies prompt saves drenching action or. Hor Portville escape on Wash i net Plee Konstiny of new-1 a mighty narrow afternoon at the crossing of the h monday ii Street private Roberts buried sunday canal. Prompt action on the part of men operating a canal boat and passersby probably saved the distinguished doctor from a thorough drenching and possibly serious bodily injury. The doctor failed to notice the approaching canal boat. When he started to drive his Ford Coupe on the swinging Bridge crossing the canal. The mules pulling the boat and the Floater portion of their Tow had passed the Bridge when the doctors car died up when he was fairly on the Bridge a saw that the draw was about to open and thinking that of the United states government will not Purchase the property of the merchant shipbuilding corporation at Harriman the plan they intend to follow is to Salvage All of the material and equipment now belonging to tile government on the Harriman property with the exception of the Brick and Concrete buildings and the pipes and conduits running underground which it would be dangerous to remove. The above is official in so far As anything can be official coming from Washington before the new shipping Board which has already been appointed approves of the plan As announced. While the formation of tile foregoing plan will doubtlessly he accredit ted to Admiral Benson who in the absence of a shipping Board has been handling the affairs of the emergency Fleet it is doubtlessly tilt conclusion of the Congress determined through the investigation of Iii various committees who for months have been considering the various angles of the local problem. Doubtlessly the solons in the Halls of Congress have weighed the matter from the following standpoint. It would Cost the United states $1,-500,poo, to secure title to the Harriman ground. By salvaging the material owned by the government on the property they will be Able to realize approximately $1,000,000. This added to the sum paid Harriman would mean an additional in est men t for the government of $2,-300,000, on top of the enormous amount spent to build the Yard under War time pressure and War time prices. The government in this instance is looking at the proposition from the standpoint of Good business and instead of timing up this More than two millions of dollars for ail indefinite period they would rather realize the million or More dollars they will secure through the Salvage plan. According to the agreement entered into by the government and air. Harriman the former have six months in Waugh to remove their property and tit the end of that time or january 1st to be exact every building standing on the property at North Bristol and everything else of value will revert to the ownership of the Harriman interests. Already Steps have been taken to secure bids for material the same no be held up until the Sanction of i the newly appointed shipping Board s Given to the entire project As outlined. This Sanction we ill undoubtedly follow As the Board is appointed by the administration and the fact that the governing Powers of Hie nation have taken the stand that full military honors to be de on remains of departed hero All.
