Brown made the discovery after Under Sheriff Ernest A. Gossett had unlocked the cell doors that morning. The arrangement of the jail makes it possible for the Under Sheriff to open the doors by pulling a ba/from the outside of the prisoners' quarters. He pulled the bar as usual Friday morning and Brown went down the corridors throwing open the doors. Looking into Johnston's cell he saw the body hanging from the bar.

There the Rev. Doctor Graham of North Girard, performed the ring ceremony, making the happy twain as one. The marriage was all the more interesting as George had answered his country's call and was going on the 25th to Camp Dix to join the colors. 9 61 bursements Western Union Telegraph Co., message Westfield Lumber &.

WE don't like to keep harping on the shortage of wool and the difficulty of getting clothes. We have anticipated your needs the best we can, and really have a fine assortment of clothing ready for you to inspect. Patriotic Address. Clinton N. Howard will favor the people pie of Westfield and vicinity next Thursday evening with his latest effort: "Wake Up America." We are;indeed fortunate to have him give this here. He will present up-to-the minute facts of great interest and importance. At a recent meeting of the County Fair Executive Committee John G. Wolpert was placed in charge of the horse racing and track during the county fair to be held September 10-14 and an appropriation of $3,600 was made for purses, which insures probably the best aggregation of horses ever gathered on a half-mile track in the state. Mr. Wolpert will attend a meeting of horsemen to be held in Buffalo June 6th and will then announce the classes and purses. The committee is also making other plans for making this fair an elaborate success. The premium list will be issued at an early date, attractions will soon be booked and' there will be something doing every minute. But the fact remains that, as these assortments of fabrics, models and sizes become broken, it is next to impossible to duplicate our orders. In the whole history of the country it was never harder to buy clothing. In fact, it is the same with furnishings. It was never before so true that early buying pays. Victrolas or Grafonolas Mr. Howard is much in demand as a platform speaker and this all absorbing subject will attract wide attention. We sell them the 0. & H. way— a small payment down and a little each month. $18 and upward. No doubt we can take care of you whenever you are ready to come in and select your clothing, but we can fc&e care of you much better right now than we can later. There are some clothes buyers in town who figure that the wool situation is likely to be worse before it's better, and they are buying two and three suits in order not to be caught later t under supplied. The committee 'being unable to secure the Theatre; the address will be given in the Methodist church. Remember the date, Thursday, June 6th. at 8 p. m. If you knew the pleasure to be derived, you would purchase one today. All the latest and best music.
