Good Bny Wanted—To learn barber trade.-Maul & Hall, Piasa at. An incipient flre was discovered iu Zaugg's barber ahop on Piasa street last night. An electric light wire that carried the arc light current was exposed and touched a wooden support iiside the snop, to which it set flre. The blcze wan discovered before there auy serious danger. There was quite a sensation lit the office of the Illinois Glass Co., Saturday afternoon. T.B. Milliken, ayoung man from Atlanta, Ga., who had been taken In by the glass company three weeks ago under circumstances that at the time, led his employers to think be was »n upright Citizen, decamped from the office taking with him $80 In cash. Milllken came to Alton somo time ago and set about at once to ingratiate himself with church poo- pie. To an Alton minister lie told n hard lock story and enlisted his sj m • pathy and assistance in procuring work. He was most devout In his participation in church services at several places, notably the Washington Street Mission, and his actions were such as to lead his employers to believe him honest and trustworthy. Appearances are ofllmea deceiving, however, and Milllken developed into the worst kind of a snare and delusion that has been eeen In many months at the glass works. Saturday afternoon while the deceiver was in the office alone, Mr. A. E. Bassett being absent upstairs paying off the men, his chance came and he improved it. A lady from San Francisco, who does business with the Illinois Glass Co., was in the office and wishing to make a payment of (80 on account, tendered the money to Milllkeu. He took the money, signed his own name to the receipt, and gave it to the woman. Milliken pat the moLey iu his pocket and a few minutes later said be was not feeling well and aeked permission to leave. He left and the last heard of him was that ho was on the way to St. Loots. Mr. Chas. LeviB notified the St. Louis police and Millikeu is now a much searched for man. It was a strange coincidence that reports of Milliken'a want of integrity at Atlanta had been received and he was to have been discharged Saturday night.
