McCleary died at his home on Carlisle street Sunday afternoon at !5:30 aged 42 year's, 3 months and 20 days. Mr. McCleary had been in a highly nervous state for several days and had been taking a sedative. It seemed 'co give him little relief, however, and about eleven o'clock Sunday he prepared to take a very large dose. His mother cautioned him but he said that former amounts had been too small to help and that he wanted to be sure j he had enough. Soon after swallowing the medicine he fell asleep and during the afternoon several physicians -were summoned but they could do nothing for him and death resuH- i ed about four hours after the dose was taken. Mr. McCleary was a jeweler by profession but had not been following this business for many years. During the summer months he took tourists over the battlefield, acting as guide. He leaves his mother, Mrs. Harriet McCleary, with whom he lived; one sister, Mrs. George Sipe, of Getty5 burg, and two brothers, Charles McCleary, who has been ill at his home in Kokomo, Indiana, for the past two months; and Arthur McCleary, of Harrisburg.

Riggin Ksq.,-ef- Fort Wayne, Indiana, were married in New York on Friday. The bride is a daughter of Captain and Mrs. P. S. McConnor, of Carlisle street, and i sister of Mrs. Norman S. Heindel. Mr. Riggin is formerly from Chrisfteld, Maryland. He is a graduate of St John's College and the Law Department of the University of Maryland. Some little excitement has been created in the mountain through an announcement made by a prominent real estate broker, of Waynesboro, that he had discovered a cave of large proportions near Pen-Mar Park, only a short distance from Schockey's cave. The latter cave won considerable notoriety on account of the latter being the refuge or hiding place of 3 notorious counterfeiter, who carried on his illegal work with much profit many years ago, when there were no | such things as railroad facilities in j this portion of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the cave is located only a j short distance from the Old Germantown road, which was used by wagon trains from Baltimore to Pittsburgh. The discoverer of the cave is keep ing its exact location a secret for reasons he is somewhat loath to divulge on account of much value he seems to attach to its contents. He said that he was standing near a ledge of rocks overlooking the valley 500 feet below, when his feet slipped and he was precipitated forward and fell into an opening in the rock^, which proved to be only a few feet wide at the entrance, but grew wider the farther one entered. When he had gone some distance, he said, he found apartments, similar to rooms in a house, on either side of a passageway, and on the ground of the room nearest to the front of the entrance he claims to have picked up valuable minerals. ACKERMAN--BOUSE Frank Ackerman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Ac'ierman, of McSherrystown, and Miss Nora May Bouse, of York, were married in St. Mary's church, McSherrystown, December 23, at 6:30 a. m., by Rev. L. Aug. Reudter. They were attended by Miss Edna Ackerman, sister of the groom, as bridesmaid, and Augustus Miller as best man. The prospector has a few of the specimens he took from the cave tc Waynesboro with him. These contain traces of gold and copper. He is much elated over his seemingly valuable find, and says he does not expect to tell any one where the cave is until he has gone through it and determined the value of its contents. Local people, accustomed to weird and sensational stories coming from the mountain, will - take this latest tale with considerable allowance until they are shown the cave.

Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Baltzley, Mr. and Mrs. Luther Wetzel, Mr. and Mrs. Byrd Heinly, Mrs. Charles Rinehart, Mrs. William C.
