Opening it a revolver was thrust in bis face by one of three masked robbers, who demanded his Money, He tried to slam the door shut, but they forced their way in, when he retired to his bedroom and tried to barricade the door with the bureau; but they broke the door and succeeded In getting in there also, although he cut the largest one twice in the face with a pocket knife, Unable to cope with the three, he broke the window and jumped out, the. robbers shooting after him, and run as he was — bareheaded and barefooted, clad only in shirt and pants, When he reached the nearest neighbor's half a mile away, the robbers went past, northward, and although his feet and hands were badly frozen he did not stop to rouse them; but, anxious for his family, he went back home. The robbers did not secure any money at all. They are supposed to be the same three who held up Mr. Hansen near here about ten days ago. Constable Wright went out with a posse this forenoon and tracked the robbers several miles, overhauling his men within three miles of Clarion. Deputy Chas. Hughes is returning with one and the other two (it seems thei'e were four) are located and will be in custody before tomorrow morning. * ' ' , Shooting at .Emmotsburg.. One result of the present saloon system as carried on at Emmetsburg was a shooting scrape, which occurred in that town last week. The Democrat thus describes the affair: Last evening, at 6:30, George Steil was shot in the abdomen while scuffling with John O'Connell in the latter's saloon. Steil went into the saloon in company with another party. He got into a dispute with O'Connell and the latter ordered him. out. He refused to go. The latter went behind the bar and got a revolver, A scuffle for the possession of the weapon ensued and it was discharged. The bullet went through Steil's overcoat and lodged in his abdomen. He was assisted to his home, when medical aid was summoned, but the bullet could not be located. He is in a critical condition. The Next Chautauqua, Beacon: The date of the next Chautauqua Assembly will be the same as in '93 and 'B4— July 10-25. The executive committee have given a good deal of attention to matters of importance with the third assembly, and Secretary Whalen is' shaping the programme as fast as practicable. It is hoped that one new building will be added t6 the grounds this season. We 'refer to what is known in Chautauqua language as the Hall in the Grove. It will contain an auditorium for use of the Bound Table, Sunday School Normal, and other class meetings, and also an office for the secretary.
