AT BEAVER DAM
Between two and three o'clock
Saturday morning the citizens of
Beaver Dam wece aroused by the
tion one, Millard Bailey, son ot
Gran. Bailey, of near Rosine, was
I found lying on the sidewalk with a
j bullet-hole through the .upper front
precarious condition and was bare
ly able to be conveyed to his home,
, m. He gave no clue as to the
identity of his assailant and the
whole episode seems to be shrouded
in mystery. On the preceding night
the drug store of R. T, Taylor had
been entered by burglars and some
alcohol and narcotics stolen. On
the same night the store of Otho
Dexter and the Beaver Dam Drug
Co., in front of which Bailey was
found, were broken into and small
amounts of cash and merchandise
taken. One theory of the shooting
Is that some citizen of the town
fired the fatal shot when the
marauder was caught in the act of
burglary; another hypothesis Is that
Bailey was slain by one ot his com
rades as the result ot a quarrel over
the division of their loot. It Is re
ported that another of. the culprits
was seen and recognized before he
succeeded In making a get-away.
