Using liis pocket, for a bank cost tbe life of Ettel La^sa, a Fin lander of Gates Tvorks, at an cariy bour this morning. Two negrcx-s murdered him and got away with his money, anioiim- ins to about $500. Lassa, who woh 28 years old, was attending a dance at Gates. About 12.30 o'clock, as he stepped from the j house for a moment, he was set iifron ' by the negroes, known as "Tra.pper" and "Will." Tbey demanded that he throw up his hands. Being a stalwart fellow Lassa grapplrd instead and ia the scuffle he was shot, ihe bullet entering the brain 1-elow Uic right eye. Death was instantaneous. So close was the rauzxlc ff the weapon that the man's nose was badly burned. Several persons are f^aid to have witnessed the .light and rccojfnized the negroes, bai none dared lo brave the weapons of tho negrons. The niur- derars hurried to L*a«ibcrt and changed cloUics and disappeared, supposedly in the dirt-ction of Browas- villc.

I R Those on the scene declare it is not too much to say thati other 48 hours will see the German .drive definitely stopped. High praise is given the French reserves for the perfect order! which they are coming into the fighting line. j It was the first important action carried out alone by the r s lericans. All reports agree that they behaved like veterans. , is is pronounced the best augury for the early future when icrican help will weigh heavily in the balance. ENEMY MAKES SLIGHT PROGRESS.

V K J I Y V I R K I'.AST Connelisville showed Union town how to do it last night, when a delegation of canvassers and wtiiers, 500 strong, went from this city to tbc county scat, paraded the streets of tha 1 . place and collected between $1,000 and ?3,500 for the Fayette County chapter of tbe Hod Cross during tho evening. The trip, at the invitation o£ Uev. Clovd Goocnight, director of '-he Bureau oC Development of the county chapter, was made in automobiles, street qars and trains. On arrival in Uniontown the delegation paraded over tbe streets, headed by the Connellsvillc Military band, which was at its host. The parade disbanded at iho court house, and the many aovcHies used to keep up enthusiasm in Connellsvillc during the past wevk were put inio operation. Old Kaiser Bill again f e l t the noose aroand his neck, ami Unianiown patriots were given tb-o ploiitiro of contributing to hang him higher. Flags were carried in tbe parade into which coins weri generously tossed. All the niom^y collected las; night goes 100 per cunt into the coffers of the county chapter. The biggest feature of the parade was Uie float reprustiiiUng Uie "gruaX- est mother ia all the world," which attracted math. aUontiou. here on Monday night. Mrs. J. J. DouglKTty was tbc principal figure on ihe spoi- le,-xs white float, being surrounded by siugcrs aitired in white. Castor's Military baud was one of the big enthusiasm-raisers of tue parade. Thirty strong it led the Con- nctlsvillc boosts rs attracting unusual attention along ine line of inarch, with its repertoire of ]opulnr patriotic r.u'.ribcrs rendered wiUi a spirit that stirred even tho aio« seriate .i»d conservative L'niontowDer to .a reaiis'-a- tion t h a t a real red-blooded aggregation was ir town. Almost without intormiss-lon from start u firus^t of the demonstration the hand kept irp its program of self-ciions. adding greatly to the enthusiasm of the occasion. JU services v;cre givc.n without charge as a patriotic contribution to the cause.. By way of contrast it may te noted that the Uiriontown htmd was invited l.o participate in th" ConnellRville parade on Monday evening. The offer was made to pay Oreir street car faro and provide their wi:h snipper, which was accepti*d but at Uie lapt moment they demanded a purso of $120.00 ''on the side." Inasmuch as every other other organization was turning out without expectation of remuneration. the committee in charge declined to make an exception in favor of the Uu- ionto^ii band, and it remained at home. Uniontnwn people were taken some- wtiat unawares, they say, hy the doscont of the Connelisville aggregation their coming not being sufficiently known beforehand to prej^rc n proper reception for them. The fact that Rev. Cloyd Goodnight, during his address here on Monday ovenrng had invited all ConnellRville to entne to '.he County Capital last night seems nat to have been made generally known, hence the apparent f a i l u r e of Uniontown to prepare for tbe invitation. Judge Reppert, attracted by the noise on Uie streets, is said to have ]eft his office last evening without knowing w h a t was tbe occasion of tho tumult. Bumping Into some of the "Midway" features he ruthlessly put a stop to them nntU "he learned the reason for their presence and the identity of tfms'e in charge. He then promptly got busy to help the Con- nelisville boosters arouse Lhe town. FIVfi MORE MEN OF.
