The rohbery was not discovered until this morning when'Post­ master F. S. McKelvey went to the oi- flce to o*en it for the day's business. • The robbery is believed to have taken place about two oelock, althouch there Is no Information that would definitely fix the hour. ClifTord I-ewis, ""a clerk employed in the llanna store hoard a sound as If an explosion had taken place ahout two o'clock.' The i report roused him from ileop slumber, but, beinp in a sort of confusion re- anlting from his sudden awakeninf;. Mr. I^wis did not realize just how loud, the sound was or from whence^ it appeared to issue. He finally concluded that someone had just entered the house and slammed the door, so he took his ease and dozed away. Shortly before seven o'clock. Tost- niaster McKelvey turned his key in the front door at the office. When the door swung o|>on. a -atranfie sight greeted his eyes. There was a rift in the row ' of boxes from which ttatrons are serv- ' ed with mail. The damage had evidently been done by tiie violent Impact which resulted when a hei^vy object struck the fixtures. Kntering his private office, behind the mail bo.\es. Postn>a.<ter McKelvey «oon discovere«t what had happened. The heavy iron door hlid hwn .blown from the htiRe safe which set six feet away and. bad been hi rled with terrific force against the mall lio.xes. The interior of the safe had been thoroughly ransacked, the coin In the money drawer taken and the reglsrered mail had been rifled. About Jl.'iO was taken froHi the money drawer and negotiable papers were taken from the registered mail. It will ije some time be- for the loss from this source can be determined. ^ The robbers carefully avoided the ^itamps and checks, which would lead most, easily to detection. After taking everything they rared for. the robbers made an easy exit by imlocking the rear door. How they fled from the scene is a pu/.zle to the olficers. They may hare used a team or perhaps a niotor car. There is no clew that will tell. Kntrancc to lilie postoffice. was made hy forcing opon a rear window and crawling l>etween the iron bars that -were suppftsed to guard the window. It, is clear therefore, that the robber or robbers was or were, as the case may be, of small stature. As soon as the robbery w/.s discovered. jPosfmaster .McKelvey* inmiedi- aiel.v supiinoned Sheriff Kerr, who with Undersheriff Dunfee went at once to the scene. A careful insi>ection failed to reveal any clew, save for the fact; that the robbers were small men. Team tracks were found In the ground in the rear of the office and the deduction that the robbers were using buggy or wagon 1o make their escape " is made. It is possible, however, that the tracks wercmade by horses other Than those n.sed b.^r the rolibers and this information Is not regarded as of great value by the officers. The ban- 'dits may have used a motor car. but This is not clear and Is merely hazarded as a guess because of the fact that the robbers came Into town and T]^ WEATHER.

It is almost certain that HumlKtldt base ball enthusiasts will have the opportunity of seeing Walter Johnson pitch a game of ball on the local diamond this month. A letter from Wal­ ter's.father says, that undoubtedly the famous twirler would be glad to pitch a game for the town In which he was raised. A game will be arranged with some good team, possibly the lola While Sox. It is probable that Ad Hi'ennan will be at his homo In IM- Harpe by the time the game Is played in which case he may bo Johnson's opponent if a game is matched with the White Sox. Johnson Is attending the world's series in tiie capacity of reporter for the noston Herald.— Humboldt Union. BOYS FROM ALLEX fOlXTY. Were Cuttinir Vp In K. f. and Policy Nabbed Them. Two boys, lately from the farm, are ready now to go back to their native pastures and forever shnn the Ihrc of the cltys lights.

Both of the boys— 'ir they are only 19 and -O years old respectively— were gathered by the iwllcc raid on Twelfth Street "mashers." When they were brought Into court they gave their names as Jerry Cutler and Hay Weeks and said that they were from Western Kansas. Friends here later arranged for an appeal, atjjj Judge I^tfihaw heard their case yesterday alicrnoon. "We were just scared, judge," said Van Foster. "That Is why we gave the wrong names. Of course we were cutting up a little on Twelfth street, but you can't blame two boys from the country for kicking up their heels when their glances are met by smiles and winks from the girls.

SCHOOL TEACHERS HERE. About eighty teachers from schools all over the county came to tola this morning to attend the monthly Teachers Association meeting. The morning was spent in a discussion of the new class books, led by Miss Inez Nelson. Alva Smith read a discussion of the new gramraa-r; John Towel discussed history and civics; Miss Kate Cooper, the reading book. Following these discussions was a lecture by Prof. Hungtrford of Kansas Uni^-^rslty, on destructive Insects, their effect on the apple crop and the remedies. His talk was Illustrated by insects and apples. The teachers believe Prof. Hungerford's talk is one of the best the association has bad the pleasure 'of hearing. This afternoon the association spent the time watching a deinonstration of indoor and outdoor games for school children, conducted by Prof. Turner, of the State Normal of Emporia. The pupils of Garfield school wer« used in the demonstration. This department of school work is now receiving a large share of the attention of all teachers and Prof. Turner's demonstration probably paved the way for more wholesome games and sports on the school playground in Allen county. The remaindefr of the afternoon was spent in hearing the report of the Fair Committee, who are planning the school exhibits for the 1913 Fair. n UiOWED omv K HIIS TOr>fl BOSTO.V TWIBLER SHOW £D WONDERFUL FORM.

Oct. 12.—^The Boston Amer loan league champions defeated the New York 'Nationals by a score of lo 1 today in the fifth game of the world's series before a crowd of about thirty-five thousand. The' Red Sox only need to win one more game to capture the title of world's champions while the Giants must win three straight games to gain championship laurels. The youthful Bedlcnt pitched a won derful game, holding the New York club to three hits. Mathewson also pitched a sii|ierb game. New York's only run was scored on a two-bagger by Mcrkle after two outs and an error by (Jardner.

With the Red Sox one game nearer the championship than the Giants, enthusiasm in Boston ran high and a crowd greater than that which attended either of the two previous games played here is In pros sect. The beginning of a long line of bleacher fans formed at the gates late last night. There Is much hard feeling among the Boston players against Pletdier and the New Y^ork people. Boston's claim Is that Fletcher tried to injure Cady in sliding to the plate in the sixth inning yesterday and say the New York crowd threw stones and dirt at the players as they were leaving the Polo grounds in atttomoblles yesterday. O'Brien was struck by a stone and slightly hurt. Speaker. Boston's center fielder, is still being treated for a lame ankle Manager McGraw today said: "Boston's win yesterday only make* ns fight harder. The Red Sox depends upon Joe Wood.
