his creditors, and no way of discharg

can a man make an assignment for the

See if yon cannot let us know over
item that transpires in your neighbor
hood." On the night of Monday, tho 24th
of Maj-, Moses Harrison, a farmer living
about ten miles south of cast of Hop
kins in Nodaway county, was robbeil.
of SCfiO under the following circum
stances :. Several weeks ago Mr. Har
rison sold a tract of land for SC50, of
which amount $150 was paid in cash at
the time of the sale. The remaining
8500 was paid to him on tho 24th "of
Ma', and the whole amount was depos
ited in a tmnk iu his . dwelling. On
the night of that day, tho weather be
ing warm the doors were left open,
and, while all the family were asleep,
burglars entered and carried off tho
trunk, takingit to a secluded spot about
two hundred yards distant, where it
was rifled of the money. It was not
until ten o'clock next day when the
trunk was missed, and, search being
made for it, it was found as above des
cribed. Notice of the robbery was at
once given to the authorities of the
neighboring counties, and it was not
long before Sheriff Frame of this coun
ty got on a warm trail. Tho result
was that on the 27th he and Constable
Long of Bigclow township arrested
John Watson on the cars at Bigclow.
On his person thoy found $330. He
was at once brought to Oregon and
lodged in jail. The Sentinel was ud
viscd of tho arrest, but, at the request
of the Sheriff, no mention was made of
it last week, as it was known that two
parties committed the robbery and it
was desirable to capture tho other party
before publicity was given the arrest
of Watson. Everything turned out as.
expected and on Saturday Constable
Long arrested Richard Copehind at
Bigclow aud brought him to Oregon.
He had very little money but had just
purchased a line span of mules nnd a
wagon aud harness, wldch, by the
way, hu has sineo turned over to Har
rison, thus virtually acknowledging
his guilt. Both Watson nnd Copeland
wcro turned over to the authorities of
Nodaway county and are now in jail iu
Maryvillo. Tho evidence against them
is said to be very strong. Watson is it
young man, only twenty-one years old
He was raised in this county and has
always been considered a mighty hard
case. Only last November he was re
leased from the Penitentiary after serv-
ingout a three yars sentence for horse
stealing. Copeland is about twenty
seven years old, and has been living
around Bigclow, working at odd jobs,
for several months. He has not been
considered ti first class citizen. Neither
i atsttii nor Copclnnd is married. Too
much credit cannot bo given Messrs
Iraino and Long for the manner in
which they worked tip this case and Mi
cured tho criminals. Several limes bu
fore they havu effected similar raptures
anil tfieir names arc becoming a terror
to evil doers.
Messrs. Blum & Ueinhart .ire now
at work fitting up the store room next

Attention is directed to the adver
tisement of the sale of town lots in the
new town of Maitland, sometimes called
Swoncville. in Whiir Valley in this conn

Maitland will undoubtedly soon become
a business point of considerable import
ance, anil tho purchase of lota there
will be a safe investment.
Wc regret to learn that the storm
on Tuesday night did considerable
damage to the new M. E. church in
this city. Tho building was twisted
several inches at each end from its po
siiion on the foundation, while the mid
dle was apparently not moved. Much
injury was also done to the plastering.
Fears arc .ttexpreised that the building
in its present condition is not safe We
presume a competent builder win be
eninloved to rive it a tlwroiiKh exam
ination, and we hope tho damage may
prove less serious than representeii.

year was 8,170,875 tons, by far the largest
production In our history. The number ot
blasl-fnmaccsa In operation- hut year was
097, and forty-four others were, in course
of construction. The capacity ot all when
the forty-four are completed will be 6,300,

being 1,047,50(5 tons foe the former year

the mills will be enlarged so as to very nearly
meet the Increased demand.
