lake on account on financial troubles last
Friday niglt We have notbeen able to
verify Mr. Staples' statement as yet, but
our impression is that he is mistaken.
Some say that he isdead, some that

that they always knew Staples was a
villian and would eventually prove a
defaulter, and that he will never come
back, and he is not dead either. But
one thing is certain, Staples left here
early on .the morning of the 4th to,
go to Kentucky after his wife, who is
there on a visit, and that he should
have been back here a week ago, but
nothing save the paragraph copied in
to the Dispatch has been heard about
him up to the present writing. It is
equally certain that all the county,
town, andschool monies has disappear

these are only a few dollars to his
