I he biggest Bass. Tin largest Bass Ever reported caught in this s action of tin state was caught to it other Day at the irom Lale dam fishing Creek by Isaac Shaffer who at tie time was fishing for suckers. The fish in insured 27 inches. Shaffer was fishing with red Worms for seekers when lie hooked the Bass. Aft.

The Bass was unquestionably tin largest caught in Many years i this Section of the state. Tin t in the largest number of fish that Ever came to Danville for the purpose of replenishing the streams hereabouts arrived Friday evening and saturday morning. In addition to the shipment of Wall eyed Pike Pike Perch or Susquehanna Salmon the name under which they Are More commonly known which shipment was alluded to in these columns wednesday ten re was a shipment of Pickerel Fry from the it. Pleasant hatchery due at about same time. Charles Kuckel who had made application for the Pickerel was in formed by Telegram that the fish Fry were on their Way Aud would arrive Here 011 Friday morning. O11 meeting the morning train,. Kuckel was informed that the fish had not arrived and the supposition was that there Imd been some misunderstand ing and that they would arrive saturday morning. O11 Friday night How Ever the Pickerel Fry filling five cans most unexpectedly arrived at the station Aud the fact developed that they had gone astray Aud had been carried far out of their Way. As a result tin fish halt a suffered much for Quot the want of care some were dead while those living were very much enfeebled. The Pickerel were designed for the Chilli qua que Creek but All idea of carting them so far had to he abandoned and it was perfectly Plain that if even those that survived were to be pre served they would have to is placed in their native element at once. As the Best Way out of the difficulty therefore tin Pickerel Fry wer placed in the Mahoning Creek near it Mouth. Application will 1>< Madi immediately for another shipment of Pickerel for the Chillisquaque to take the place of the one that went astray. The Susquehanna Salmon arrived from tin Erie hatchery saturday morning in a flourishing Aud healthy state. There were ten cans of them representing Many thousand fish. They were met at the station by John Mccall and John Fisher by whom they wire deposited in the North Branch at Harvey lamber soul Saud at cd Point. The Susquehanna Salmon May attain a fair size �11 two years and will add much to the sum total of sport for fishermen. Fish Fry Laceil in tin River develop rapidly.

If fishermen elsewhere along the North Branch would take As much in Terest �11 replenishing tin strip ams As Danville people it probably would not be Long before fish would be As plentiful As at any time in tin past.

There is circulating among the Span ish american War survivors in Danville a petition applying for a charter for the 44united Spanish War veterans a an entirely new organization National in its character which is the outcome of the amalgamation of four societies the Spanish War veterans the Spanish Aiu Erica War veterans the society of the service men of the Spanish War and the society of the Espano american War. Formerly there was in Danville a Camp of the Span ish american War veterans now embraced in the above amalgamation. What Success May attend the Effort to organize a Camp of the amalgamated organization remains to be seen. There Are no less than seventy five survivors of the Spanish Aiu Erica War in Danville and Vicinity and if the movement fails it obviously will not he for tin want of material. The amalgamation was completed in 1d04. One Hundred Aud fifteen Camps scattered All Over the United states surrendered their old Charters and received new ones from the amalgamated organization.

The oddest of All burglaries was com 1 fitted in one of our department stores sunday afternoon. It was a Daylight affair in which nothing was absent needed to make a Well rounded Aud exciting robbery. The burglar was a a aught red handed there was a detailed confession after which the culprit was hustled off to jail. What makes the episode distinctively Odd was the fact that tin Well planned robbery was committed by a Hoy ii years of age. A a about six of clock sunday evening a Small boy named and Candy appeared at the residence of s. Lowe Stein West Market Street with the startling information that somebody had broken into their department store. Joseph Ami Marvin Lowe Stein immediately ran up to the store one passing around t it the front of the building Aud the other going to the rear. At the rear of the store one of tin basement windows had been forced open. The two sons of or. Lowe Stein accompanied he James freeze entered file store simultaneously from tin front and the rear. Inside was found William Kenner wlm said to was the Sou of George Renner. Seeing no Chance to escape himself he began to implicate the cauda Hoy. Who had Given the alarm and Joseph Seaman another Hoy who lives near Groves court leaving the parties under the impression that Joseph was secreted about the store. By this time chief Mincemoyer and officer Voris were on tin spot and assisted in searching of a or the Confederate alleged to he hidden. For at least an hour the search went on merrily every Hole Aud Corner about tin big establishment being ransacked while a crowd of a Hundred curious Nople Hung about the front of Fin store observing the. Movements within through the big windows. At length chief Mincemoyer went out to the Seaman Home and there found Joseph whom in brought Hack to tin store. Joseph cried and stoutly protested his innocence. Charles Lunger and Little son soon after Appe Areil at tin store and proved that Joseph was with them during the afternoon. At this juncture William Kenner the real culprit declared that lie had been a a lying and that he had planned and executed the Job himself. He also exonerated the Candy boy. The officers were sort la vexed when 11�y reflected How much time they had spent 111 the vain search for a boy who was Only a phantom and they began to upbraid Young Kenner for his falsehood and deception. Tin youngster was full of bravado. He laughed heartily at their Chagrin and if it were an to boast of yes i know i am an awful liar a by this time the officers began to take an account of the Booty found with 1 Renner Wheeli consisted of $1.50 in Cash a lot of cuff buttons two match safes a Tablet and two decks of playing cards. As indicated by the Booty lie had been pretty much Over the w Hole store. Entrance was effected through a rear w window tin Sam Etc r of which was fastened with an Iron bar that swung 011 a Pivot fasten a to one of tin shutters. Or Lowenstein Iris of the Opinio that the Hov by rattling the shutter caused the bar which probably had not been secured by the pin to tilt one end rising and the other falling until it passed out of tie Staples. If the Youthful burglar May he believed the a a shutter opened bursting foliage and blossoms. The landscape at present has assumed a charming aspect Aud altogether it is tin most pleasant season of the year to take a stroll or to drive into the country. The roads Are in excellent condition and the summer heat has not yet became a Factor. Scores of vehicles hearing their i Iota of Happy people might have been seen sunday starting out for the country.

Two Judian Hoys who escaped from thu training school at Carlisle were captured by officers Mincemoyer and Voris yesterday and Are now detained in the county jail.

When below red Point they met livery Man Frank Fry who informed tin police that near the Church a mile or so below Cameron in saw two Young men who reminded ii in of chinamen reclining on the grass in the Shade. The description of the clothing corresponded to that of the two Indian students for whom the officers were searching. Chief Mincemoyer requested the livery Man after reaching Home to hit Eli up in a double seated Carriage and to return to Chulasky for the purpose of bringing the officers and tin indians if captured Back to town. Meanwhile tin officers would keep a close Lookout and intercept the runaways if they came along. In due time or. Fry returned with the Carriage. Up to that time nothing had been seen of the indians.

The next moment both he and his companion were taken into custody. They neither offered resistance nor attempted to deny their identity. The officers Ami their prisoners entered the Carriage and were driven toward Danville True to their nature the Young indians were sullen and uncommunicative. They however did not refuse to answer questions. I11 this Way Consin Veraldo information relating r�1 their Esca a was elicited. Although in broken English their replies were a re direct Ami intelligible. The older of the two Hoys gave his name As Antonio Yel Lobo Nineteen years of age a Sioux Indian.

Pursuant to the action of Council at 1 its last meeting rubber Coats and Rubi her gloves have been ordered for the j firemen Ami w ill probably he on hand j for inspection by the time of its next meeting tomorrow night. Each fire company is Given four rubber Coats 1 and four pair of rubber gloves. A few a of the Coats As Well As several pair of gloves Are in Good condition so that it was found necessary to Purchase Only twelve Coats and thirteen pair of gloves. A test of the Hose conducted by the fire committee revealed that of the 4000 feet of Hose in use by the four fire companies of the Borough at least,800 feet is defective and should he replaced with new. A a a Section of Hose consists of 50 feet a a line a of 500 feet the allotment of each company being 1000 feet. The inspection showed that the Hose of the Continental company is All right. The 800 feet condemned is divided equally among the other three companies. Some idea As to the life of Hose May he formed when it is explained that the Hose of the Friendship company now condemned was purchased in 1887 that of the Goodwill and Washington companies in 1889. Five hum red feet of fire King Hose was purchased for the Friendship fire company in 1901. One thousand feet of Eureka Hose 500 feet each for the Washington Aud Continental companies was purchased by the Borough since 1901. A k int which will be decided at tin meeting of Council tomorrow night will be whether to Purchase Only the 800 feet actually needed or to but 1500 feet so As to give each company a line of new Hose. Many it to not approve of mixing the new Hose with the old As would have to he Doue if Only what is actually needed were purchased.
