If you know of an item or a piece of news, tell us about it. That's what j we want. But a newspaper man eome- I times experiences more difficulty in j gathering news than one would imag- j ine. This was the case when a report- ! er ina neighboring town, who a few ' days ago was sent to write up a fire in I a residence. Going to the door he in- I quired for the lady of the house. The j maid said she was out. "Are any of j the family at home?" inquired the ! scribe. "No, they are all out." was i the reply. "Well, wasn't there a ftre ! here last evening?"

Once again has Manager Hill of the Stock Company proven his progressive- neas by securing the last success of the late Daniel Sully, "The Golden Rule." Thia play waa presented by Mr. Sully up to the time of his death, and met with success everywhere. The leading character of Father John, whieh^r. Sully has written for himself, is that of a broad minded, kind hearted old priest, beloved by ev¬ eryone regardless of creed or politics. It ia a type of character often found in real life, among clergymen of all creeds. A aelf-sacrificing man who devotes his life to the the betterment of hia fellow creatures. The story, an intensely dramatic one, tel|8 of a man caught in the maeltsrom of speculation, who makes way with funds not bis own. Anci shows now the deserving Father John sees the good that is in the man and saves him from suicide and degredation. Mr. Sully's original part of Father John will be played by Mr. Hill and Mias Donaldson will appear as his niece. Louise Stanley, the wife of the speculator. The speculator, Dick Stanley will be in the hands of Mr. McClellan, and Mr. Osborn will handle the character of Courtney Dale, the false friend, who causes most of the troubles. Mr. Moore will play the comedy part of Herman Hauser, the German sexton of Saint Michaels. Without doubt the play will meet with the same auccess locally that it did i elaewhere. And if it nleaaes, Mgr. Hill will put on another of Mr. Sully's successes, viz: "The Game." 1" Young man, if you are to call on" "her" this evening, better read Smith & Bedell's ad in this isaue and profit by the auggeation there.

Quite a little excitement was caused by the arrival in town of a band of wandering gypsies last Friday after¬ noon. Going to the local fruit store, kept by Morris Weeks, several of them went in presumably to buy, and one of the women induced Mr. Weeks to go into a back room, so as she could tell his fortune. While this was going on several of the youngsters helped them¬ selves to fruit and while Mr. Weeks' daughter was endeavoring to stop them another walked off with a change bag containing money exceeding five dol¬ lars.
