Thieves arc now stealing window cusiups -where they arc prepared lor putting into new buildings. In the Mtit week n window casing was tarried away from the Debing cc Whitsctt saloon building and one from the Kllis dwelling, the latter U-ing taken in the middle of the day while the cnriKMitcrs were : way at dinner. In each case the thieves left the building. Wortl comas from Richard King, who went to Portland n short time ago to have cataract removed from his eyes, that the operation has been entirely successful and the old man uu see again. He is yet to have glasses fitted and will be home in the course of two or three weeks ready for work. On account of Mr. King's age, nearly 70 years, there was some doubt as to the out come of tins operation and everybody will rejoice with him nt the return of his eyesight.
