Notice to Bondsmen.
To those who are charged with
any infraction of the law and who
are out on bail, also to the those
who are sureties on any bond
for the appearance of any one
at the next term of court. It
is my purpose as well as my
sworn duty, to track the law in
all cases coming before the court
and if any one fails to ap
pear without legal excuse, his
bond will be forfeited and his
surities will be compelled to
make good the bond. I give
this notice at this time that there
may be no misunderstanding in
the future. It will be too late

Eben Googins keeps a small, lit
e1 tered shop on Main street. His mod- t
eat sign reads, "Second Hand Fur- B

a customer, braced for the conven
in- tional war of words with pawnbrok-1 p
ers and antique dealers, whom she q
had grown expert in beating down. a
But her challenge did not draw the e
conventional retort from Eben. He
fingered the wrought-iron fender she v
had unearthed from between a mas- t(
sive and valueless veneered high-boy 61
and a broken spinning-wheel, and
said, with a covert and calculating of
10 eye upon her: 4
