Robert Lano, aged 19 years, sou of William Lane, was arrested on Wednesday last on a chargo"of burglary and theft, preferred by Mr. William H. Anderson, agont of the Quooii Anne's railroad at this place. L.iue was committed to jail. Justice Higuutt gave him a preliminary hearing on Thursday morning, and a crowd of people gathered · to hoar the testimony. Agent Anderson stated that his loss was $50.28. He said entrance had boon gained by the front window, and that tho fastening had boen broken. Tho money drawer had boen forced open and tho money extracted. He had Examined tho marks mado on tho window, and had found an implement, an ice axe, which fitted tho indentures made in the wood exactly. This axe was used in the ice factory near by. Other witnesses, including Mr. L. B. Towers, proprietor of the factory, testified that Lane had worked at tho plant on Sunday night, July Hist, the time whoa the burglary was committed. Engineer Smith, of the factory, said he. was not cognizant of Lane's whereabouts at all times during the night, as.they worke'd 'in. separate departments, but saw him at times during tho night. Others testified that the accused had spent money since the funds were missed, but, it was shown, only in small amounts. Lane made uo statement, but to officers stoutly protests his innocence. · Mr. Albert G. Towers appeared for tho accused, and Mr. Deweoso, tho State's Attorney, was present. Justice Higuutt held tho prisoner for court, and as bail was not furnished he was locked up. thousands scattered I'ar and wide. D in-hit; this pasl three docsidos there havo boon several jrood landlords thoro. Tho b u i l d i n g - was crccti"! in 1SG5 by contractor A. 1 G.-idd. a brother of Col. L u t h r j r I I . H s i d d , t h o late John Robert F o u n t a i n b i - i n g t h o owner. The first t e n a n t was Mr. Gcorgo A. M i l l i n g t o n , who f o r . s - uv- oral years kept the house. Tn those days it was k n o w n as "The L:i viorrc." Mr. M i l l i n g t o n is no-r fit Dover, where he has a prospf.rous ami w - M - patronizcd hotel, "Tho Capitol." Mr. F o u n t a i n sold the p r o p e r l y t o Mr. William Felt, w h o carried on the business for several years. For a short period thereafter, Mr. Full moving away, tho Brick was managed by Mr. Fell's father-in-law, tho late Lemuel Wilkins, and he in turn was succeeded by tho late James Molvin. Some years after Mr. John H. "Vangesel bought tbo property, and with the exception of a short time, during which Mr. James H. Straughn and Mr. C. P. Dunning had charge, he has managed it. Few, if any, of tho landlords havo been more popular than "Jolin Henry," as his most familiar acquaintances often call him. At the Brick many a pleasant hour is whiled away after the business of the day. Drummers, the ubiquitouo drummers, are especially fond of putting up at the Brick, and the best story-tellers on the road know full well that thuy meet a host as genial as they iu Mr. Vangesel.; That the time may pass more gaily the traveling salesman always has a good story to tell, and he is often rewarded by one equally as good by tho proprietor. "Thus the guests are more contented." But the chief attraction at the hotel is tho excellent table. , Mr. Vangesel is making oxtousivo 1 improvements in the Brick now., Tho long porches on Main and Second streets are being thoroughly rebuilt, and a now roof, with ornamental finishing, is being put on. Tho whole building will be painted, giving it a new and pretty appearance. It will bo a credit to the town, and no doubt tho public will duly appreciate it. The interior of the house, also, will bo refitted aud beautified, and thus the comfort and convenience of the guests will be enhanced. In tho language of an hospitable spirit of long ago, nmy Mine Host Vangosel "live long and prosper" as proprietor of tho Brick Hotel. K:iKt»rn Sltorr I'.anks, Mr. Edward T. Tubfas, editor of tho Laurel Journal, w r i t e s as follows to the Easton Lidgcr. In tho report of tho p r o r o r d m g s of tho roccnt Bankers' C o n v e n t i o n at Ocean City, I observed a v c l o r c n p o to a p_apor by Mr. R, B.

I havi; not had the t i m n to prepare :t lisi of the b a » i k h established on the Eastern Shore u p to 1851, but I t h i n k refer- once to the Adz of Assembly wiil show ehnrtars for a score, nt least. I have al. h a n d a copy of Chapter L X X X I of tho Acts of 1833, chartering tho Bank of Caroline, at Denton, this being iho fourth bank on the Eastern Shore. The first president of this bank, which existed for several years, was Colonel William Hughlett, who aftorward moved to Talbot and was the father of I h o late Colonel Thomas Hughlett, The cashier of the bank was Thomas Culbreth, Caroline's only. Congressman. If Mr. Dixon gavo "in detail the date and circumstances connected with the establishment of-all the banks in Maryland," his paper is one of groat historical, as well as financial value, and I hope to see it printed iu full -in tho proceedings of tho convention. He has performed a herculean task", and can bo easily forgiveu for having boon a victim oi reportorial inaccuracy. Tlio Maryland Fetich. I'roin Plulrulclphln Times. Now is. the summer of our discontent made glorious by the snu of Maryland! The peach, the luscious, juicy, fragrant, wholesome peach is with us once again, and grave is the error of the woman who does not make at least one meal a day of that incomparable fruit. And why? Truly for her complexions sake! A basket of peaches contains more beauty-giving" qualities in its depths than the contents of half dozen cosmetic .shops. They are good for the blood, good for the stomach and good for the liver. They are easily digested--that is when ripe and mellow--and are an excellent tonic for the whole system nt this time of the year; otherwise, indeed, we should not have them at this particular season, as Mother Nature never makes n mistake in her matcria medica. Wise is the woman, indeed, who in the month of August makes at least one meal a day of! f r u i t and vegetables. W h a t aonld be more delicious than a midday luncheon of of boiled corn, a salad of ripe tomatoes, and a dessert of rosy poaches, or w h a t more wholesome? Try it for thirty days--this f r u i t and vegetable repast, and see, ye fair ones, if eyes do not become brighter, cheeks redder, skin clearer and digestion easier.

Green was on Tuesday last appointed postmaster of Denton, anil will in a few days assume his new duties. He will succeed Mr. HowardrMelvih, who in October, 1896, was'appointed by President Cleveland, the office at that time having become presidential. In January. 1897, the Senate confirmed Mr. Melvin's appointment and he was commissioned for four years. The present administration does not recognize ' the validity of | four-year commissions, and m a n y i changes have-been recently made on political grounds. The salary of; the Donton postmaster is $1,200, a n , increase having been ordered to take effect on July 1st last. Viga on Urupe Vl»«n. Antonio Wilhelm, an experimental German gardener, living in Easton, has not yet succeeded in raising grapes from thistles, but ho has this year figs growing on grapo vines, and apparently as much at home there as on their native fig-tree boughs. Jnst how he accomplished the feat, or freak, Mr. Wilhelm will not tell; but he says there was uo process of grafting about it. In the garden whore the figs and grapes grow thcro is a mass of them growing together in a confusing mixture. The figs on the grape vino grow from the angle made by the j u n c t i o n of a cluster of leaves w i t h the vine, but they are attached to the vino itself and not to the footstalks of the leaves. Mr.-Willaid H. Thuwloy hay this to say of the recent meeting of the mooting of the Caroline County Holiness' Association at Enuols' camp ."At the beginning of the camp thcie ;wa'£i§o/me di*appuiiuiniht in nor receiving the tout oidorod by the Holiness Association, but the campground committee oidcreda canvass from Baltiuioie instead, and put it up-on Monday, and from Tuesday there was a sweeping victory in the conversion of sinners and the sanoti- ficatton of believers, ;mong whom were some of tho most prominent citizens of the county. I think that from Tuesday morning until Friday evening there was not a service held at which sinners were not converted and Christians sanctified, and, as I told one of our ministers, the secret of tho success of the meeting was the preaching- clearly and distinctly of the doctrines of the M. E. Church, which is surely f o u n d e d on the scriptures of justification and entire s n r i c t i u c a t i n n . "As separate and distinct blessing.;, both u'ceived instantaneously, by faith, a:.d preached by such men as K i vs. F. F. Carpenter, L. E. Pool. C. S. Baker, P. E-. . ever District, JL. W.

"I desire to thank the people of Eunals' c n m p who went to so m u c h trouble to make things pleasant for us, and I am sure 1 am expressing the wishes of the Association when I say we feel truly grateful, especially to the families of Brothers Bell and Lord, who furnished the tents, and hope the t i m e may come when we can in part repay them. This was one of the most glorious camps 1 ever attended and I fully believe the pentocostal camps are the only ones that amount to very much, spiritualty, now." ' Lightning's Ilnvoc.
