C. W. Class, Agent,
A False Report.
It was reported here the latter part
of last week that horse thieves had
made another raid, the fourth within
the past two or three years, on Mr.
Abraharason, near Garfield, and had
stolen two more horses from him.
Quite a lurid account accompanied the
story to the effect that Mr. Abraham
son had caught the thieves in the act
and had taken two shots at them with
K.a shotgun loaded with buckshot,
wounding one of the robbers, who es
caped in the darkness, however. The
robbers returned the fire, killing one
of Abrahamson's dogs, so the story
said. Later information obtained
from Mr. Abraharason by Sheriff Mc
Coy is to the effect that the horses
have since been located at the place
in Hedgeman county where they were
bought some time back. They had
evidently strayed away and gone back
to their old home, which leads to the
conclusion that, while Mr. Abraham
son has surely been having a tough
time with thieves lately, it does not
do to always believe all of the stories
which get into circulation about such
happenings. Larned Tiller and Toil

Needs a P. O. Corner Boss.
Pawnee county seems to be a little
behind the times.' An investigation
shows that it is not due to lark of en
terprise among the citizens of that
county but is due to the fact that they
don't have the right kind of a politi
cal boss It takes a hustler, one who
Rtands right up close to the throne to
get things done for a community.
Lust week's Larned papers announce
that rural route number one had been
established in thatcounty. We have
had two rural routes operating from
Kinsley for years. We have a polit
ical boss who does things without
wailing to be asked.
