Two Val Nuhlon chairs were stolen from the porch of David r Shelhart a reddened Center Street on tuesday night. The theft took place some time Between Midnight and morning hut there i no clue to the thieves it was altogether a daring and a most cont a Tible piece of thievery and should serve a a a w Truing to other people who Are not careful to place things of value behind lock and key. Elsewhere about town valuable rugs have been missing lately from the front doors. The thieves evidently make Tours of the town at night sex peeling to find articles outside the houses where they have Hen left by the families who Sil up until late Tine warm nights or Shelhart s family generally mates it a t radio. To Lake Chai ,&e., in the House at night hut tuesday night proved one of his occasion that formed an exception those who visit the episcopal cemetery these Days Are surprised to seethe Many and naked improvements that have been made about the Hue old burial ground. The old cemetery As was natural under the lapse of time had taken on quite an air of dilapidation which was painful to the members of Christ episcopal Church with which the cemetery is connected and the vestry entered upon a system of repairs and improvements a High Iron Fence of artistic pattern has been erected along the Eastern and the Northern hide of the cemetery on tie East both at the new and old portion of the grounds Are handsome Gate ways a double one for carriages and by its Side a smaller one for foot people. Skirting the Iron Fence on the East is a Well made sidewalk of gravel. Entering the cemetery similar improvements Are noticeable. Wherever a lot was found in need of repairs and no survivors of the dead interred remain in this locality the vestry at once assumed the responsibility Ami had the leaning tombstones reset the plots cleaned off and where washed filled up and neatly graded. These improvements give Tho cemetery quite a changed appearance but the work is not yet completed. There arc still a number of other plots very much in need of attention in which Well known families lie at rest the survivors of whom Are in our midst. On plots such As these the vestry of course has done no work preferring to Waif to ser whether the survivors the ones on whom the duty naturally devolves will not take hold of the matter and follow the example of the vestry making just such repairs As May i a necessary to give the a trial ground a neat and uniform appearance. On some of Tho plots the evergreens seem to have run riot forming gloomy clusters that hide the Graves from View. Such spots give the Oei Retery a most melancholy appearance while a Little Well directed labor and a Little expense would fix things no neat and trim and give the whole cemetery an appearance that would com it Ort better j it a with a proper respect for the dead it is even a question whether the general it text would not he enhanced by removing the Iron fences which enclose some of the lots. The vestry is determined that the work shall not end where if is for should it come to the worst and the survivors decline to do anything to help the repairs along the Church itself will push the Good work on not stopping until every lot has received attention and has been fixed up to look clean and presentable. The episcopal cemetery was presented to Christ Church Barish by Peter badly sr., in 1852 about Twenty years ago an adjoining tract was purchased and added to the cemetery doubling the size.

The chief of police is after the swimmers who use the River in the Vicinity of the Bridge As a bathing ground As Well As those who Bathe elsewhere in the Borough limits. The ordinance is very sweeping and prohibits bathing within the limits of the Borough whether a bathing Cost Uzuh is worn or not. It states that no person shall Hatho in the Susquehanna River Mahoning Creek Pennsylvania canal or any Stream in the Borough under the penalty of paying five dollars Fine for each and every offence. This ordinance has not always been strictly enforced especially when bathing costumes were worn hut of late swimming has been carried to great extremes and Many abuses have crept in so that the edict has gone Forth and swimming in the Borough will have to Stop altogether. Some of the practices Are becoming Little Short of scandalous in Tho Vicinity of the River Bridge. Toward evening during each Day when the Bridge is full of people passing backward and Forward it is a common sight to see in full View a dozen or More half nude figures distorting themselves in the water above or below the Bridge. The garment worn is the poorest apology for a bathing suit but that is not the worst of it it is not a rare occurrence for full grown Young men lacking proper self respect and sense of decency to disrobe in full View of the passers by and put on their bathing outfit or what passes for such. The practice should he Stop Ted at once and the swimmers made to seek some other spot. The Public demand it. Otherwise a pleasant and much frequented promenade will lose its Charm to every sensitive and refilled person. Swimming has also become great nuisance Iii the dam at Mahoning Creek North of the Borough and the thief it police i. Jest As determined that the practice there must Stop also. Mrs. Anna e.
