The accident was witnessed by oonduo- tor Behrlg, who called to Yehl to drop the pole and jump. 1 be latter, however, held on to the pole, stumbled, and as be fell was caught.

MIGHT HAVE COST HER LIFE Palmer Graver Was Shooting; at a Target, When a Bullet Struck the Woman on the Head - No Serious Results Looked For. On Saturday afternoon, towards evening, Palmer Graver, with a number of friends, was shooting at a targot in Jeremiah Both's lot, at Hamilton and Eleventh streets, when a bullet struck Mrs. Edwin Snyder.of 1111 Hamilton street, and at first it was supposed the wound would be fatal. She was walking up Court street towards her home and happened to look around and call their dog. While thus turning the bullet struck her on the right side of the head, a short distance back of the eye. The bullet made a wound about halt of an inch deep. Dr. H A. Grim was called and probed for the bullet, but has not yet been able to locate it. . The doctor says that he can detect a solid mass.but is unable to say whot her it Is the internal tablet of the skull or the bullet. Mrs. Snyder was up and about yesterday and did not feel any bad effect from the wound. The doctor does not apprehend any trouble unless inflammation should set In. If the bullot had struck Mrs. Snyder a bit further down or further back the re sult would probably have proved fatal. A hen coop stood between the alley and the marksmen, and the bullet must have gone through two boards before It struck Mrs. Snyder. The proballty is that it passed through the cracks and thus hit Mrs. Snyder with the teres It did. SPLENDID ENTERTAINMENT. Dr. Roblaon Gave Another of Ills Shakes pearean Lectures. -Y. M. C. A. Hall was crowded last Satur day evening with the usual Intelligent audience anxious to hear Dr. Robinson's third In his course of sis lectures on Shakespeare; the Man and His Mind," and, as was to be expected, after the hear ing, all were ready to pronounce the lec ture both Interesting and enjoyable. Beside the pleasure of hearing a very in structive analysis of the most popular of the lirst period piays, "Midsummer Night's Dream 1S04," The audience had the pleasure of seeing pictures of the principal buildings at Stratford, In which Shake speare passed his lifetime. Theplcturfs were well shown on a large screen and. with the aid of the explanatory remarks by Dr. Robinson, they formed a series of views, that as exact reproductisns of the originals, could not fail to be appreciated by those who had never visited the classic banks of the Avon. A few of the points made by the doctor are here given : The workunder consideration in crudeness consonant with- the age of the writer was commended as showing, from the beginning of biscareer, the established ability of Shakespeare to accomplish what ever he undertook In the way of plot. There are diffiulties of construction in the play that, to any one but a genius, would have been Insurmountable. The play is regarded by many as Insignificant. So It is, by comparison with bis later writings; it Is the effort of a beginner, and, in Its class, stand unmatched by the writings of any playwright. EMAU3 ECHOES.

Laub Is a firm believer In witches and witchcraft, and after bis family phy-sian could give the old man no relief be went to Reading to consult one ot the numerous "hexa" doctors that have their abiding place In the berks capital. The The latter came on to rJhoenerevllle. He diagnosed tbe case and said Trieble was bewitched. He then announced to the family that tbe first person that entered tbe house was the witch or "hex." Just about tbe time that the Reading "hexa" doctor was hoidiug his "pow wow" Mr. Winch discovered that he needed oordwood, and immediately set out for Neighbor Laub's house to buy some. He was the first to enter the bouse after the witch doctor had given his opinion. Immediately Laub concluded that Winch was the "hex." Mr. Winch Bays that Laub told all the neighbors that Trieble was bewitched and that In nine days he would tell who the witch was. It Is also said that Laub called on his family doctor at Bethlehem and said the doctor would soon have Winch for a patient, meaning he would be taken Hi when the spells of the witch doctor began to work on him. Tho neighborhood become greatly excited over the matter. After the nine days Laub announced at a picnic that Winch was the witch. The latter claims that the report that he holds communications with evil spirits has tended to belittle and injure him in the estimation of his neighbors. For the loss of bis reputa tion and other injuries he claims f"i000 damages. . JUDGE ALBRIGHT ROBBED. His Overcoat, Umbrella and Valine Stolen While Riding on a Train.
