Chief of Police Walker went to Enon es-
tenlat to ascertain what was known there
about the man who broke into the school
house on the night of irunday. January 3d,
and left hi horse hitched in front of the
house the gretti r pirt of the night. He
learned that the school house had reallj
been broken into and not merely entered.
The person or persons who occupied the
house that night had procured a rail and
battered the door at a point Immediately
over the lock. Intending, probably, to break
the lock Failing in this the panels of the
door had been smashed In and the burglar
or burglars had crawled through the aper

person was seen in the building by a late
pxsser by and th gentleman believes that
he could recognize the man If he saw him.
It Is believed by the police that
Thomas Jennings, who is now in
jail serving a sentence for
carr) ing concealed weapons. Is the man who
broke Into the school house, as he answers
precisely to the description given of the
fellow by the gentlemen who passed the
school house that night. In addition to this
Jtnnings had two bonks in his possession
w hleh were stolen from the house.
It was reported to Chief Walker before
he went to Enon that Scott Layton's horse,
which was stolen from Mr. Layton's stable
on the night of the 2d InsL, had been seen
in the possession of a man near Enon ad

It is submitted to. and toted niton, by the
