About eighteen dollars in Cash were taken from tie purse Cou tailed in the pocket of or. Howe a trousers which seems to be All that was Stolon from the premises. That the thieves were expert Aud hold i proven by the circumstance that in order to reach or. Howe a pantaloons they were obliged to enter his bed room at one Side of the bed pass around the foot to the other Side of the bed at tie head of which Hung his clothes. That they ran a desperate risk in this is apparent when it is explained that or. Howe is a very Light Sleeper that twice during the night ouch abut one of clock Aud again about three of clock he was awake for Long intervals. Of the Bureau ouly a couple of feet from where or. Howe s clothing i aug Lay two Diamond rings and a valuable breast Piu Cou Taining eight diamonds belonging to mrs. Howe neither of which were disturbed by the burglars. Tuesday morning All tie floors and windows were found securely locked with the exception of Tho front door which was merely Rulo ked it was closed and there was nothing to show that any Force h id been applied. The family is w Illing to concede that the front door might have been left us locked by mistake on monday night. When the family of t. J. Price whose Fine residence adjoins or. Howe son the cast awoke tuesday morning the discovery was made that the House had Buu visited by thieves. Down stairs every thing was turned upside Down hut fortunately nothing was stolen. While ransack aug the lower Story the thieves had taken great precaution not to disturb the family sleeping of the upper floor.

Oue of the rear doors at or. Prices although closed was found us locked tuesday morning. The key had been removed Aud was found lying of the table in the dining room. How the robbers managed to get 11le door of u is a mystery. Tho lock was perfectly intact. The fact that the key had been removed might he taken to indicate that a false key of s nne s it it was use a by which the True key was pushed out of Tho lock. All Tho windows were fastened. Whether the robbers were frightened away before they made any selection or a lib Luot discover anything that constituted the kind of Booty they were after of course is not Guowu. The House occupied by Henry Trotter adjoining or. Howe a premises of the West was also invaded by the thieves although nothing was stolen. The burglars Here gained Eutrace in the same mysterious Way leaving no Marks whatever upon Tho door which was found a Locke 1, although closed yesterday morning. The residence of w. 11. Miller Geu Oral manager of the Danville Aud Bloomsburg trolley company of Pine Street was also robbed of monday night the Booty consisting of a new overcoat a i a pair of gloves. Here the same mystery exists As to he a Wou Trace was effected As the family is perfectly sure that every do in Aud window was locked of retiring. Yet of arising yesterday morning the six be door was found unlocked although closed. Noue of Tho windows had been ported disturbed. There was to thing to Ludiene that the key had been removed nor was there and sign about Rue a Loor to show that Force had been applied. The lower Story was prof to Well ransacked but All that the robbers seemed to want was Tho overcoat and gloves which belonged to or. Millers son r Ibert a fourteen Vear Ohl Hoy. Continued of Page 4 during some weeks past the management of the Reading Iron works Here has been up against a unusual difficulty. In Short fire broke out in the big soft Coal clump West of the Mill Cou Taining thou suds of Tous of fuel Aud the problem has Bee i How to get. The tire extinguished. Although it is by to Means Nuu snal for heavy deposits of soft Coal to ignite in this Way yet up to the present to adequate menus have been discovered that will thoroughly extinguish the Firo an. Thus prevent a anus sauce Aud loss. The fire at the Reading Iron works is to exc Priou. Early in the autumn the discovery was made that the soft Coal was of lire. This formed a enormous Deposit built up around the High trestle us that carries the cars Aud from which it was dumped. To get at the seat of tie fire was impossible and the Best that could be Doue was to drench the Coal with water. Although water was regularly Aud systematically applied but Little was accomplished in this Way the water merely run Niue off the Coal without sinking in to Auy depth. Meanwhile the Deposit of soft Coal Lay there like a miniature Volcano Day Aud night emitting Clouds of smoke and revealing evidence that not ouly was tie Coal slowly but surely burning but that the entire system of heavy trestle us nearly new was likewise being pm Mcd by the hidden fire. When the works start.<1 up last Mouth and the Coal was needed for the furnaces an Effort was made to get at the scat of the fire or at least to Cut off its Progress toward the schutes which form a part of the trestle us a system Aud which were in iraqi deut dauger. By applying water regularly As the Coal is removed the Progress of the fire in that direction has been a rested although the burning elsewhere a is still in Progress Aud the Deposit of i Coal even on the surface is hot. As the Coal is hauled away the full damage done to the trestle us becomes apparent. The lower timbers Are wholly or in part consumed Ami at least two of the Large Bents Are robbed of their support Aud As the Coal is removed Are held upright by being chained to the top Stringer. Tiie effect of the fire is not to wholly consume the soft Coal but to Burn it int i something like Coke Aud in this form it is still available in the Mill and is used without much Unchu Voni ence. Pennsy changes Telegraph wires the Pennsylvania Railroad company a a Forro of Meu employed of the South Sido nuking an improvement Itiat i. Very important to the company. This consists of removing the Telegraph poles Aud wires from the North to the South Side of the track. Up to the present the Telegraph poles have been plated of the North Side of the tracks at South Danville extending All the Way to Sudbury of that Side. At a Short dist uce above the Lauk the wires were carried across the track aug a thence eastward the poles were plated of the South Side. There Are some objections to having wires Cross the Railroad track principal among which is Tho tact that thac Tion of the steam Aud Sulphur thrown off by the locomotives cause tue wires to rust. The Pennsy therefore wherever practicable carries the Telegraph wires through under the track in the form of a Cable. The Railroad Long ago plagued to remove the poles to the South Side of the track in South Dau a i lie Aud Riverside imply aug of course that the poles should be of the same Side of the Railroad ail the Way Tsuu Bury. To do this however the Railroad people at certain Points were oblige l to occupy Laud that came in under tin jurisdiction of Gearhart township. The supervisors saw proper to refuse the necessary Preu Iliou. At present however Tho township Aud the Railroad company seem to have arrived at a agreement. The latter is contributing liberally of its Road ballast to be used in Highway construction from the Bridge to the station w Hile Gearhart township in turn seems to have withdrawn its objection to the Pla uting of Telegraph poles on South Side of the track. As a result the work is Well under Way the poles being erected and the wires Strung of the South Side of the track. In order to reach the station it is practicable to employ the modern method of form aug the wires into a a Able and carrying them underground this Cable which runs into the Telegraph office contains some Twenty five wires Only ten of which however will be brought into play at present.
