For the present until contemplated improvements and changes may be made the house will be open three nights a week, but later it is expected that daily shows will be given.

EFFORTS TO STEAL FORD PROVE DISMAL FAILURE, An effort wa made Monday night by some unknown parties to seal the Ford coupe belonging to the Fair-mount Lumber Company, but because of their inability to start the engine their attempt ended in failure. The garage door at the lumber yard was forced open after the lock having been bioken with a heavy piece of iron. The robbers not having a key with which to operate the electric switch controlling the engine starter, had used a piece of wire in their efforts to get the motor going, but this failed them and they were forced to abandon their effort. The car appeared to be all the would-be robbers wanted, as nothing else about JT1 had been molested. NOT ENOUGH FREEZING TO MAKE SKATING POND. Because the required amount of zero weather has not been furnished by the weather man the efforts to establish a public skating pond on First street have proved to be a failure. Monday the second attempt to flood the field was made, but the water soaked away through the unfrozen ground soon after being poared into it from the water works mains.
