People of High Bridge, Mount Hope, Ire- mont and Fordtnra Are Looking for a Wholesale Attack. Residents of High Bridge, Mount Hope, Tremont and Fordham are arming themselves for an expected attack from a gang of burglars. Women are afraid to remain alone, and in many families a male member has left his work and is on guard all day. A Vigilance committee of twelve have been formed, and every night the members tramo through the section looking for suspicious characters. This fright has been occasioned by the wholesale poisoning of watchdogs. Many residents of this territory live in large houses surrounded by extensive grounds, the houses being quite distance from the road and from each other. It has been the custom- to keen watchdogs, and the do£s have been blooded amimals.
