The examination of Mr. and Mrs, W il­ liam Clifton, arrested in Rochester, March 15th, for robbing the Purdy cot­ tage, was held before Justice Wood? worth on Tuesday, Tae witnesses sworn for the People were S D Purdy, of Ba­ tavia, Detectives Kavanagh and Seifferd, of Rochester, and L D. Henderson, ot S.lver L*k<\ Tlie goods found in pos- t'CSsica. of tna Clittons when arrested and those affcoiward sheared at Ryan’s aud Samuels’ pawn sIiop 3 in Rochester, were produced oa the examination and ilentilR d by M>. Purdy and the detec­ tives. 1 he'value pf tho articles stolen from the cottage L, at a low estimate $300. The goods now iu possession of the Sheriff aro valued at about $150. I t is expected that the remainder of the stolen property may yet be recovered. The testimony of Detectives Kavanagli and Soifferd gave ti detailed account of the arrest of Mrs. Jennie Clifton, at Leonard’s saloon and boarding house on S. South Paul street, the arrest of Clif­ ton later, and the finding of goods in their possession and at the pawn shops. Mr. Henderson is proprietor of the hotel at Silver Bake, where; Mr. and Mrs. . Clifton boarded. This hotel is about 200 feet distant from the Purdy cottage. Mr. Clifton went there to board on the 6 th of February, his wife arriving next day, and they occupied a south-west corner room on second floor, 14 or 15 feet frdm the ground /;' Ciifton’s.baggage consisted, of a bundle done up in a rub­ ber coat, Mrs. Clifton’s of a targe yaliae and a truuk of ordinary size. Mrp. Clifton remained at the lake until the 21 st of F ebruary, when she returned to . Rochester. Miss Mabel Hammond, bf Rochester, was the only witness pro­ duced by the defendants. The main point of her testimony was that ; Mrs. ; Clif ton’s baggage' was taken from her house to the station when she started for Silver l i »ke, and that both trunk and satchel were packed heavily. Clifton stated that on the afternoon of the 21st or 22d of February he entered a freight car star;ding on the. side track to be loaded with ice, the west door of which WaA open, and found there three parcels, oho •■* ; eauvas grain Rag,' One a . large paper fiour bag,; and: th e : third a ban die wrapped in oil clod).

Sunday morning dawned, an almost p e r­ fect spring like day, and the inhabitants ot LeRoy awoke: with smiling counte­ nances. little dreamimg that anything unusual was going to happen during the live-long clay. Ar, about 4 o’clock p. m., . a gentlem an em erged from his residence on St. M ark’s street and walked quickly up St Mark’s to Xorth. Hesitating a moment, he decided to turn down Xorth and thence to Maple avenue. Whem about half way down the avenue he noticed a couple of what might be called w o u ld-be dim e novel adventurists who seemed to be looking at him yery in- trntly, as if coveting something about his peison; but being accustomed to walk tho streets of LeRoy at any time and unprotected (that is before it wa3 a license town) he dispelled all fear and walked leisurely on, little thinkiug that he was closely pursued by the two youngsters with eyes sparkling with am­ bition to gain the coveted prize, “ by hook or by crook.” On reaching the house of a friend about half way up Churph street, the gentlem an suddenly turned in, and throwing down on the ground cl 036 by the door what proved to be the coveted article, walked in and closed the door behind him. The. lady of the house looking put of the window and seeing four sharp eyes coining toward her, was somewhat frightend at the occurence, and raising the window excitedly saicl: “ Boys, what do you want here?” whereupon they scampered tip the streat. Five minntes later a rust­ ling noise was heard a t the back of the house ahd they were seen. bearing away the fruits of their Sunday adventure— which was about an inch and a half of a stum p of h lighted cigar.

For the benefit of those who w^re n o t present at the \last meeting when Mrs,' W right gave a full report of hefc«winte,,,s work, we will quote a small, but impor­ tant part. “I have miniBtered both spiritually and physically to the sick; I haye brought tweuty-one children into the Sabbath school; eighteen adults have been influenced to attend church and prayer meeting; my influence has been used to keep children from tbe street/and persuading them to attend the publicsohool,” * A n I m p o r t a n t P r o m o t i o n . The Grand. R apids Eagte of the 26th th inst contains the following, which-is of local interest: “ O ne of the most competent and able generaL freight agents in the United States is Mr, Clayton E Gill, of the Grand Rapids & indiana railroad. H e has for years been a leader in the Can - tral Traffic Association, and on his opin­ ions, counsel and assistance have been eagerly sought oy older men who were connected with roads having more mile­ age and a larger traffic. He has for years been Chairman of the Classifica-- tion Committee of the Central Traffic Association and has held that position since the Trunk Line Association joined with the Central. Traffic, the Trans-con­ tinental, the Northwestern and the Southwestern Associations in an effort to secure a uniform and universal class­ ification for all the railroads on this con­ tinent—a very, high honor, but one that can only be won by ability and capacity for the arduous duties of the position.

Here is an original “poem” read by Sena­ tor Vanee in the United States Senate a few days ago: Our Mary had a little lamb, And her heart was most intent - To make his wool beyond its worth, Bring 56 per cent. But a pauper girl across the sea >i Had one small lamb also,. Whose wool for less than half that sum She’d willingly let go. ,; Another girl who had no sheep - Nor stockings—wool nor flax— But money just enough to buy A pair without the tax, Went to the pauper girl to get : S o m e w o o l to sh ie ld h e r l e e t ; And make her stockings, not of flax, But both of woo) complete. When Mary saw the girl’s design She straight began to swear She’d, make her buy both avool and tax Or let one leg go bare. So she cried ottt: “Protect reform! Let pauper sheep wool free! . If it will keep both her legs warm. What will encourage me?” So it was done and people said, Where’er that poor girl went, One leg was warmecf with wool, and one With fifty-six per, cent. Now. praise to Mary and her lamb, Who did this scheme invent, ’ / To clothe one-half a girl in wool And one-half in per cent. . All honor/ too, to Mary’s friend, ■ . And all protective acts, That cheaply clothe the rieh in wool ’ ‘ ’’ wrap the poor ih tax. P E B R Y A N D S I L V E R 1 A H E .
