Tho story deals with kleptomania. A
kleptomaniac is defined by Webster as
a wealthy person of extraordinary ab
sent minded tendencies anil morbid im
pulses. The mania usually demonstrates
itself by the victim of it being discov
ered in the act of making a valuable
collection of articles that do not belong
to him. When the poor man is caught
doing the same thing lie is arrested as
an ordinary thief. That is a detail,
There are two kleptomaniacs and two
real crooks in "Stop Thief." Also
there is a double wedding pending. In
to this household a thieving maid in
troduces her sweetheart, a real crook.
The kleptomaniac is the millionaire
father of tho two girls about to wed.
Tho bride-to-be is aware of her father's
predilection for stealing but is ignor
ant of the fact that her future hus
band is so afflicted. One valuable ar
ticle after another disappears in tho
most mvsterious manner and in the
search for the culprit many funny sit
uations are evolved.
IN MARKET BOOTHS
Many Farmers Were On Hand
With Produce and Sales
' Were Brisk
Prom the viewpoint of the farmers
and those interested in the Saturday
market and sales day, the sale today
waa tne niosc successful and in every
respect the most interesting one held
since tho inauguration of the sales day
market, every two weeks. Those who
aro interested in testing the farmers'
market idea, were well pleased with the
attendance and general interest taken
and prices realized. Already the com
mittee in charge, announce that the
next sales day will he held in two weeks
from today, and farmers and in fact
everyone who has something to sell,
is required to list bis articles at
the Commercial Club.
At the market on Ferry and Liberty
street, there were signs of activity and
general good business all morning, and
even until late in the afternoon. Every
one of the ten booths were well filled
with fruits, country produce, and meats.
The women on rural route 4 were on
hand with butter, dressed chickens and
fruits. Mrs. C. L. Weaver and Mrs.
N. II. Burley occupied 0110 of the booths
and Mrs. A. W. Cox anuther, and all
wero doing a satisfactory business.
One Jap came in during the afternoon
with his supply of celery and carrots.
"This is the best market we have had
so far, and we are going right on with
it, telling the fanners to be on hand
two weeks from today," said W. S.
Low, who has been in charge of the
public market this fall.

A persistant rumor was afloat today
that preliminary stops were being taken
to bring about a merger of tho City of
West Salem with Salem proper. Tho
people of the west side city believe
that their interests would be better
served if the boundaries of Salem were
extended to include that city also and
it is Baid that a merger would also
eliminate several problems that now
The municipal bathing beach would
then be inside of this city and under
the jurisdiction of the Salem police and
the West Salem people would be in
better position to work for a new
bridge across the river at this place.
The proposed merger would affect
no change . in tho county lines but
would simply extend the city limits of
Niloni across into I7?V- county. West
Salem is incorporated and contains
about one square mile of territory ex
tending from a point about opposite
the Salem reservoir north ulong the
river to a point about opposite the end
of Chemeketa street. The end of the
steel bridge is in Polk county and out
side of tho city limits of West Salem.
West Salem has about 700 inhabitants
and its property valuation is approxi
mately $l"i0,000. Last year West
Salen was taxed 20 mills for road and
county, 10 mills for city and 8 for
schools. It has a bonded indebtedness
of $901)0 which it incurred in building
its municipal water plant, electric
light nnd sewer systems.
(Ine of the principal advantages to
West. Salem cited in favor of tho pro
posed arrangement is that the UO pupils
of West Salem who attend the Snlom
High school would not be obliged to
pay $-0 annual tuition per head, and
would receive fire and police protec
tion. Ernest Blue, city attorney of West
Salem, when asked about the proposed
merger today said that ho had not
heard the matter discussed as yet and
did not know how the people of West
!ulcm would stund on the question.
