Last Wednesday Clarence Pence
of north of the Grove drove his Buick
to the ball tournament at Humeston.
When this side of Humeston about
two miles he had some trouble with
his car which necessitated him leav

repaired at once he left the car at
the side of the road that evening.
That night some one stole everything

the car, taking the tires off the
wheels, the presto tank and tools,
tubes, etc., to the value of about $80.
This is the first incident of this kind
that has happened in this section. It

guilty ones.—Garden- Grove Express.
