of LeesDurjj-Sells it
Sylvan Linn, alias Lober, was ar
rested In Wavorly Saturday on the
charge of obtaining money under false
pretenses from Mr. Drummond, a
liveryman of Chllllcotho.
Linn came to Leesburg about ten
days ago and represented himself to
Jesse Tliornburg, who runs a livery
barn there, as being a horse bujer.
He had hired a team from Mr. Thorn
burg and driven into the country
around Leesburg ostensibly looking
for horses to buy. Qn Friday he hired
a team from Mr. Tliornburg, saying
he was coming to Hillsboro to buy
horses. Mr. Tliornburg expected him
back Saturday morning and when he
did not show up by 3 o'clock Mr.
Tliornburg suspicloned that some
thing was wrong. He made some
Inquiries and learned that a team
which answered to the description of
his and a man who answeied to the
description of Linn had passed through
Greenfield Friday afternoon. The
chief of police at Chillicothe was talked
to over the telephone and a description
of the man and the team given. In a
short time the team was located at
the livery barn of Mr. Drummond and
It was learned that Drummond had
purchased it for $200. The police then
got on the trail of Linn and located
him at Waverly where he was arrested
about six o'clock that evening.
He was brought to Chillicothe and a
charge of obtaining money under
false pretenses placed against him.
At the preliminary hearing he pleaded
not guilty and was bound over to the
grand jury, his bond being fixed at
9500. It is understood that this was
later raised to $1000. He is, now in
the Ross county jail.
Mr. Tliornburg went to Chillicothe
Saturday and secured his team.
When Linn was captured at Waver
ly he had all his preparations made to
leave on the N. & W. for Portsmouth.
A search of his person revealed only
$168.00. He had spent $31.10 since the
The theft had been carefully

Howe's Travel Pictures.
"Gorgeously Thrilling says the Den
ver Republican of the new program to
be presented by Lvman H. Howe at
Bell's Opera House, on March 12, 1914.
While It Is true that How's scenes
can be depended on for thrll!s and a
succession of surprises, they also im
part much that Is highly instructive.
They serve as an agency of civilization
In spreading knowledge and drawing
closer and closer the members of the
great human family, and In this ww
they develop a clearer mutual under
standing, a broader sympathy and a
keener realization of the human race.
Of the several great milestones that
stand out on humanity's highway of
progress and enlightenment, the anl.
mated scenes presented by Mr. Howe
constitute one of the greatest forces
for illuminating mind and heart. The
new masterpieces presented by Mr.
iiowe are said to be so perfect that
they seem to leave nothlntr for fnt.iir
discovery or research. adv
