BLOODHOUNDS USED

  Kitzmiller, Md, June 4
  This little town was last night treated to its third blood hound chase within recent months, the provocation being burglary and upon each occasion the trait led to the same party.
  Sun night the store of Mr Carl Kantowitz was entered and robbed of considerable clothing. Mr Kantowitz is packing his goods to move his store to Thomas W Va, and the boxes were broken open and the clothing removed.
  Following this, Mon, as the offender made good his escape leaving no clue, Mr Kantowitz telegraphed to Fairmont W Va, for the Landis bloodhounds which had given service on two previous occasions here and the dogs were brought to Deer Park on B&O train No 14 and a drive made across the country, arriving at Kitzmiller at eight o'clock. Considerable excitement prevailed which brought out the entire neighborhood and many from Dodson and Potomac Manor. IT was not until 10:30 o'clock that the crowd diminished enough for the dogs to get started to work.
  At that hour, Mr Kantowitz, with Constable Junkins unlocked the store door and admitted the dogs. After five minutes the were let out with the scent which they at once followed to the rear of the store to an alley. Following the alley a few hundred yards from the store they encircled a house occupied by a Hungarian family. Here they apparently lost the trail and it was decided to return to the store to make a fresh start, but the dogs had no sooner struck the alley than they again took up the trail with a howl which they pursued about a mile above the town where they entered the home of Mr C Hamill and went to the bed where slept Louis Hudson who with his widowed mother makes his home with Mr Hamill.
  The dogs were followed by about 200 men and boys, some carrying lanterns and the chase was not completed until 10 o'clock am, during which time the night was made hideous by the yells of the dogs. In the absence of further evidence no arrests were made, no justice of the peace being in Kitzmiller. NO search warrant was issued.
  Jewelry was stolen some months ago from a store, here and was a short time ago found buried some distance from the house where Hudson lives. Hudson was put on parole for one years last Nov for bad behavior.
  Being satisfied with the work of the dogs, they were returned to Fairmont today.


A PRIZE HORSE

  Those of this section interested in horses will, no doubt, remember the beautiful chestnut stallion, Erin Chief (No 4269 A S H Register) owned by Dr O H Hoffman, of Thomas, and kept at his farm in Grant Co until the fall of 1910. Erin Chief was shown at the Devon horse Show, at Devon Pa, near Philadelphia, last week and won first prize in the five gaited class and was awarded the cup given in this class by the Philadelphia Evening Telegraph. We learn upon good authority that $1000 has been offered and refused for one of Erin Chief's Colts. Erin Chief is still owned by Dr Hoffman, and kept at his new farms in Harford County Md. The horse was also shown at the Harford Co farmers' fair association at Belair Md, July 4, 1911, and took the sweepstakes prize over all breeds and ages. He was shown at the Philadelphia Indoor Horse Show in Philadelphia, April, 1912, and took second prize in model class and the second cup in the class for American type of saddle horses at the Devon Horse Show for 1912.


POWHATAN HISTORICAL INDIAN OPERA

  No more interesting, instructive and beautiful entertainment could well be devised than the forthcoming production of Powhatan, by our local talent, to be given in Music Hall, June 11-12, under the auspices of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the Trainmen, under the personal direction of Albert L Baker, of Chicago.
  The company composing the chorus of Indian Maidens and Warriors, while not a large one, is being well trained in the singing and acting, and are especially attractive, graceful and effective in all their work, as representing the ideal members of the noted tribe of Powhatan.
  The incidental features of the Indian village life are charmingly brought out by the special divertissements to be given by the Papooses, Indian Girls and Little Braves of the most noted and famous old warrior, Powhatan.
  The Fenimore Cooper ideal notion of the noble Red Men prevails, representing the Indian in the earlier days before his contamination with the evils of civilization.
  The charming story of the capture of John Smith by the Indians and his thrilling rescue by Pocahontas, forms the principal motif for the enactment of this most beautiful and unique of all comic operas. It is purely American, and has never failed to appeal to the average amusement lovers, along with the instructive as well as novel lines of operatic offerings.
  CAST OF CHARACTERS
Powhatan - King of Va and Chief of 30 Tribes, Mr Walter Decker
Medicine Man - Heap Big Chief, Mr Wm McGahn
Pathfinder - Heap Little Chief, Mr Eugene Cross
Crazy Horse - Leader of the Band, Mr Ray Virts
? Arvey - The terror of Mugwump, Mr Joseph Sobraske
Cliff Gudeniff? - First Citizen, Mr Frank Kight
Capt John Smith, Mr Albert L Baker
Capt Rolf - Mr Orland Chrisman
Pocohantas - Favorite Daughter of Powhatan, Mrs Elmer Sheetz
Laughing Star - Sister of Pocohantas, Miss Julia Wright
Minehaha - Sweet Singer of the Tribe, Miss Goldie Brown
Song Bird - Sweet Singer of the Tribe, Miss Minnie Bright
W? Girl - Sweet Singer of the Tribe, Miss Edna McMakin
Rain in the Face, Master William Bucklew
I hole-in-the-ground - Bad Little Injun, Master Vause Clevenger
Sun Beam - Sleeping Beauty Papoose, Babe Louis McMakin
  To accommodate the popular demand the prices have been scaled downward, 25c for children and 50 c for adults, any part of the house - the reserve sale of tickets will open Mon morning at Romig's Drug Store.
  Powhatan from an artistic view point is well worthy of patronage, aside form the fact that it is being give for so good a cause, as in the interest of the Trainmen.

SERIOUSLY ILLNESS OF MRS KIEM

  Mrs Annie Keim, widow of Silas C Kiem, is very ill at her home in Salisburg Pa. She had a slight stroke of paralysis several months ago and recently has been suffering severely from heart trouble.
  Five of her stalwart sons who reside in W Va have been making frequent visits to the old home since Mrs Kiem's health began to decline. Elder Howard H H Kiem, the eldest of the six brothers, arrived from Newburg, Oregon, on Tues to help comfort her in her affliction. His coming had been anxiously awaited by the sufferer and brought much joy to her mother heart. It was Mr Kiem's first visit to the old home since he emigrated to the Pacific coast. Lewis S Kiem, of Elkins, W Va, was with his mother from Thurs until Sat evening, when another of Mrs Keim's sons, Jonas of Clarksburg, W Va, arrived with his wife and two bright young sons. Hon N G Deim, of Elkins, is also a son. Miss Annie Arnold, a niece of Mrs Keim, from Burlington W Va, also arrived last Sat and will remain until the crisis is past in her aunt's condition.
