The political thermometer already indi

Yepterdat an educator of a gentleman,
who has .made the matter of the public school
system a life study, stated that from Prof.
Tousley's statement "that a great mathema
tician cannot be a great reasoner," he de
duced the logical conclusion that Prof. T.
must be "a great mathematician."
The teachers of our public schools com
plain of the tyrannical and ungentlemanly
conduct of the autocratic Tousley. Those
who know him best would be surprised should
any one of the lady teachers, with whom he
comes in contact in the course of his duties,
speak of him as a gentleman.

succeed himself, so to speak.

THE GRAND JURY.
They Returned Thirteen Indictments
Against Violators of the Law.
The grand jury met yesterday morning at
10 o'clock and remained in session till 5
o'clock in the afternoon with an intermis
sion of two hours for dinner. They disposed
of a vast amount of business, and seem to be
the right men in the right place. Besides re
turning indictments against thirteen pris
oners they examined a number of witnesses
about their actual knowledge of the evils of
gambling in this city. One of the victims of
the gambling houses named S. Holland, told
a heartrending story. He is a German, about
twenty-one years old, who came to the city
two years and a half ago, from his native
land where he left an aged mother dependent
upon him for support. Possessing a good
education in his own language he soon
mastered the American language to that de
gree of understanding the ordinary, every
day words used in business. He saved his
earnings and sent regular remittances to his
mother in the Fatherland, and at the end of
a year he engaged in the peddling of dry
goods from house to house, carrying his pack
in the heat of summer and the cold of win
ter. In this peripatetic occupation he was
rapidly increasing his exchequer and had he
not in an evil day visited a gambling
house on Nicollet avenue he would be still
a "Sam'l of Posen" selling his
fancy goods to the young maids and matrons
of this city.
Through curiosity he went into the gam
blers' hall, and being green in the myste
rious operations of the green room, he came
out with $320 less than he brought in. He
visited the place again and again, expecting
to win back what he had lost, until at last he
found himself in that disagreeable state of
impecuniosity called "dead broke." He
gave up peddling, and is now working again
to earn enough to embark once
more in the same avocation. To a
Globe representative he said with tears
in his honest blue eyes that he cared not for
himself but for the aged mother far away
who is in want and whom he cannot succor
as in other days. Out of the fifty-two wit
nesses examined yesterday there were seven
who gave damaging evidence against the
The following criminals were indicted and
afterward arraigned befoee Judge Koon: The
first prisoner brought into court was Burt
Blake, the young man who on the 9th of last
January assaulted Jennie Chandler in his
office on Nicollet avenue, the young
lady having cpme there in
response to an advertisement for lady can
vassers which Blake and his partner had in
serted in one of the city papers. He is the
same blackguard who advertised in St. Paul
for ballet girls about three months ago, and
after taking their measure for "tights," he
left for this city. The young man is charged
with lewd and lascivious conduct toward Miss
Chandler, and upon the indictment being
read to him yesterday he pleaded "not
guilty." Attorneys Bishop and Wright will
defend him on March 4.
Next came a brace of cripples on crutches,
Wm. Ferguson and James Smith, aged six
teen and seventeen years respectively. They
were charged with the larceny of a shotgun
valued at $70, and a fur cap worth $2, from
the office of F. Yon Schlegel, on the 13th of
last month. Ferguson pleaded "guilty," and
Smith "not guilty." The country attorney
entered a nolle prosequi in the case of Smith
and he was accordingly discharged. The
other was returned unsentenced to the coun
ty jail. Smith is from Chicago, and his
partner in crime from Indianapolis.
Charles G. Fisher was next arraigned on
charge of stealing caps to the value of $20
from Barnaby & Co's store on the 3d of last
month. He entered a plea of "not guilty,"
and Attorney Cockerel! will act as his counsel
on Tuesday, March 4.
Jacob Moore, an old man about sixty-five
years of age, was the next prisoper who
stepped forward to hear his indictment read.
He was accused of stealing $4 from J. R.
Snow's shop on the 13th of January. He
pleaded "not guilty" and was remanded to
await his trial on the sth ult., when Attor
ney Knittle will try to prove the innocence
of tho old man.
The next indictment read by the clerk was
that against William Woodcock, Thomas
Miller alias John Miller and Michael Kane
who were charged with entering the freight
cars of the Northern Pacific R. R. company
on the 27th of Dec. with intent to commit
larceny. Woodcock failed to respond to his
name and a deputy sheriff informed the
court that he had been bailed out some time
ago to make his appearance when called on.
Kane and Miller are 18 and 21 years of
age, respectively and they both pleaded "Not
guilty.'' Albert Knittle, of Cooley & Knittle,
will plead their case on the sth of March.
Stephen Burns and Charles Gordon were
next arraigned with entering the shop of J.
H. Thompson on Dec. 30, with the evident
intention of committing larceny. Burns is
a fine young fellow of magnificent physique,
and in a firm voice he pleaded, "Notguilty,"
to the indictment. His companion entered
the same plea, and both were remanded to
stand their trial on March 5, when Mr. Knit
tle will defend them. The next unfortunate
was James Burke, a comely young
man of twenty, whose downfall he
may attribute to indulgence in the use
of intoxicating drink. He came to this city
from New York about two years Since, and
being an intelligent young fellow he 6oan
obtained employment as engine driver at the
Nicollet house. Here he worked for eight
months at a good salary, saving in that time
about $257. He learned to drink, lost his
situation, and took to drinking harder than
before. Last Wednesday he entered a sa
loon where a German citizen named Lewis
Theling was taking a glass of lager, and in
the twinkling of an eye Burk detached his
silver watch worth $20 from the chain and sat
down quietly in the room. A lady observed
the theft oud demanded Burk to return the
watch to the owner who had not vet missed
it. The honest Teuton would let the matter
rest tbere but others informed the police of
the occurrence and the young man was as
rested and lodged in the county jail, to await
the action of the grand jury, who brought in
the indictment yesterday. Being asked
whether he was "guilty" or -'Notguilty,"
Burk 6aid, "I did it but nnder peculiar cir
cumstances; I was crazy drunk when I did
it." An attorney was assigned him for con
sultation and in a few minutes he
pleaded "guilty" and tthrew himself on the
on the mercy of the court. Judge Young
addressed the erring youth in a symprthetic

manner and spoke of what intemperance
had brought him to. He gave him the light
est sentence —two years at haad labor in the
state prison. "I will try to do better when I
come out," said the young fellow weae the
sentence was pronounced.
Clement Beck, a boy of sixteen, was
next arraigned on the charge of uttering a
forged order on the Commercial bfnk for
$24.60 on the 4th of January. The check
was signed "Winston & Lovejoy," and pay
able to J. A. Venderley. He pleaded "not
guilty." Trial on March 5.
The last criminals to enter their pleas were
James Edwards and John Smith. They were
indicted for attacking Julius Lieber, Jr., on
the 23d of January, with loaded revolvers
containing eleven bullets, and forcibly taking
from their victim a 6ilver watch worth $25, a
gold chain worth S5, bank notes and other
articles, value unknown. Mr. Cottrel will
appear in behalf of the young men on the
sth of March.
Robert Armstrong, who was indicted on
Wednesday for stealing coat 3 worth $30 from
I. L. Moore's dwelling house, first plead not
guilty but afterwards confessed to the theft.
He was sentenced to two years at Stillwater.
He came from Ogdenbnrg, New York, is
twenty-seven years old, and had worked as
brakeman on the Northern Pacific railroad
prior to the commission of the act which has
made him a convict. The grand jury will

that it is the anniversary of Washington's
The following notes upon milling matters
are taken from the Northwestern Miller:
The Minneapolis cooper shops made larger
sales last week,andthey are running stronger,
two-thirds capacity probably being not far
from what they are doing. The sales of last
week amounted to 33,525 bbls.,* against
28,720 bbls. the preceeding week.
Local coopers take issue with the Michigan
stock dealer who advocated the use of patent
hoops, and claim that he is way off about the
lessened cost of barrels hooped with them.
They also claim that the packages would not
be as strong and durable.
The Minnetonka mill, at Minnetonka, was
started up on Monday with improved steam
power, additional boilers being put in to make
the mill less dependent on water power. It
is now making about 400 barrels of flour per

days and a half per week, running on the
time of the Excelsior mill, which has remain

An Alleged Swindle.
Daniel Griffin, of 615 South Fifth street,
makes complaint against the real estate firm
of G. W. Farrier & Co., alleging a swindle
which, if substantial facts can be adduced to
prove, will give the firm considerable annoy
ance, at least.
Mr. Griffin charges that some months ago
he placed a farm in the hands of Farrier &
Co. for sale or exchange,
but subsequently, while he (Griffin)
was in lowa, Farris & Co. exchange the
farm for property, which they sold for $2,000;
that according to a compact the proceeds was
to be divided equally between Mr. Griffin
and Farris & Co.; that Farris & Co. violated
the contract and defaulted in that they only
turned over the sum of $50 and a lot in
Brown's valley to which Farris & Co. had no
The matter will soon be fully ventilated in

A Knotty Problem.
As Prof. Tousley, since his return from
Europe, is paying more attention to mathe
matics than ever before in the public schools
of the city, in order to discipline the reason
ing faculties of the pupils, the following
mathematical problem is respectfully submit

A Suit for Damages.
A suit for damages in the sum of $3,000
was yesterday filed by John Thurber against
Strickland and Wilson, hackmen of this city
for injuries received on the 17th of last Sep^
tember from being run over and knocked
down on the corner of Washington and
Hennepin avenues by defendant's hack
which was driven by one of their employes.
After being knocked down the plaintiff was
stepped upon, got two ribs broken,
received a large gash In the head, and was
otherwise bruised and injured. He was un
able to work for eight weeks, and has per
formed only light work since. He alleges
that his injuries will disable him for life, and
therefore demands judgement against the
proprietors of the hack lor the sum above
Julius Reese, proprietor of the New York
clothing house, but at present residing at
Minneapolis, was in the city yesterday.
A number of different reports are in cir
culation in regard to the Wiscon sin Central
railroad. Some persons who claim to know,
state that company will run their main line
through this city, while on the other hand it is
said that only a spur track will be laid to
Stillwater. The engineers, as a matter of
course, are reticent on the subject. The
city is already well supplied with short lines.
The boilers for the planing mill at South
Stillwater to replace those recently discarded,
were, according to contract to have been de
livered at noon on Wednesday. For some
cause they failed to arrive, which is a matter
of regret to the large number of men em
ployed in the mill, who have been idle since
the accident to the old boilers and who will
necessarily have to wait until the new ones
are in place before they can resume work.
A messenger from St. Paul hill came pos
haste into the city yesterday morning in
search of the police, who were wanted to take
charge of a woman, who had become violent
ly insane. On the arrival of the officers at
the designated place, the husband was found.
He seemed to think that some people were
unnecessarily alarmed, and that he was able
to take care of his wife, for the present at
least. On hearing the man's statement, the
police very wisely concluded not to interfere.
One of the carrier boys of the Globe while
on his mission yasterday morning, picked up
a pocket book from the sidewalk in front of
the Grand Opera house. The lad at once
placed the the wallet in the hands of an of
ficer, who, on looking over the contents,
found two promissory notes payable to John
Collopy. On being interrogated the gentle
man stated that he had lost the pocket book
on Wednesday afternoon, and that it con
tained $70 in money in addition to the notes.
The supposition is, that the wallet was found
soon after it was lost, that the finder quietly
abstracted the currency and placed the book
where it waa found by the boy, who is en
tirely exonerated from all blame in the

may be prepared to watch that even Ben Butler
plays not the part of the sly fox.
The Catholic church in this city has lately been
decorated with fourteen beantiful'pictures (com
monly called stalls,) and also two side alters,
both of whiah are adorned with fine statuary.
Thesa, with other fine furniture and embellish
ments, make this church very comfortable and
inviting inside. But Father Flemming of this
city says that it is too small for his large congre

to enlarge it this coming season. .

The benefit banquet at the seminary last Fri
day evening was a very pleasant affair, and netted
$100. The early part of the evening was devoted
to toasts, and responses, and music by the
Rochester orchestra. Prof. Young in response
to the toast "the Rochester Seminary," gave a
review of what had been accomplished, and an
outline of what, with the aid and sympathy of
the community, he hoped to accomplish in the
futnre. The' professor came to Rochester
eighteen months ago, and by the untiring zeal
and energy has built np a school that is a credit
to the city and community. He has encountered
and conqured many difficulties in this great
work and is deserving of the hearty co-operation
of all friends of education.

A fire broke out in the business portion of
Lisbon early this morning, and destroyed
property valued at $5,000. The fire origi
nated in Meyers' meat market, belonging to
Soloman Ides, worth $300; not insured.
The loss is total. The stock, valued at $800,
was insured for $500. The next building
burned was the Minnesota house, which was
burned with contents; loss $2,000; insur
ance $800. The two-story brick saloon of
Banta & Conkling stopped the progress of the
fire north. This building and contents were
damaged to the extent of $850; fully insured.
J. Ransom, jeweler, and A. C. Fish, tailor,
saved most of their goods in a small building
north which was burned; loss $200. The
new $800 building of Henry Cramer, dealer
in boots and shoes was burned: insured for
$250. The stock was insured for $2,000 and
damaged to the amount of $1,200. Etta
Wolcot, milliner, lost a $300 building and
her goods damaged to the extent of $100; no
insurance. W. O. Kinnie's building was
damaged $150; insured. Had the night not
been calm the whole business part of the city
would have burned.
Reservoirs and Pine Lands.
The chamber of commerce of Grand Forks
to-night held a largely attended meeting to
consider the report of a committee memorial
izing congress to appropriate $250,000 for
reservoirs at Lakes Traverse and Otter Tail.
The memorial was signed by all present. It
recites the advantages to be derived there
from. The Nelson pine land bill
was also considered and received
very enthusiastic endorsement. A
committee composed of Mayor McCormick,
Hon. Geo. H. Walsh, B. C. Tiffany, William
Budge and Geo. B. Winship was constituted
to represent the interest of the chamber of
commerce and the people of the Red River
valley before congress and instructed to urge
the importance of this bill upon members
and also to present the reservoir system to
the favorable consideration of members
of congress. A communication from
Ortonville, Minn., on the question of con
necting Big Stone lake and Lake Traverse
by a canal, and the building of reservoirs,
was read and approved as being in entire
sympathy with the action taken by the cham
ber of commerce.
The. Mitchell Post Office Trouble.
The city of Mitchell has been unusually ex
cited over the appearance of an inspector of
the postoffices, and the rumored shortage of
some $1,500 on the part of S. W. Rathban,
the postmaster. The office has been placed
in the hands of Rathban's bondsmen, who
have paid the amount. The office, for the
present remains in the hands of Gail Rath
ban, present assistant postmaster. Candi
dates are spring up, and the prospect seems
good for a lively campaign. S. D. Cook,pro
prietor of Daily Republican, Dr. W. S. Rey
nolds and Geo. A. Silsby, are the leading
Change in the Fargo Republican.
It is announced to-night that Dr. Hall, the
editor in chief of the Republican has sold his
interest in the paper to other members of
the company and will retire. It is supposed
that S. Q. Roberts, the largest stock holder,
will act as general manager for the present.
The United States Court.
In the United States court to-day, Martin
Martinila charged with larceny in the Indian

Lost in the Blizzard.
The mail driver, who left Lisbon, Monday,
for Granton, was caught in the blizzard and
wandered all night on the prairie and was
somewhat frozen and lost one horse.
Lady Settler's Claim.
It has been mentioned in this connection
several times that many attractive, accom
plished and marriageable young ladies are
holding claims in Dakota. The Parker Era
relates a somewhat romantic incident that
happened in that vicinity the past month,
which should convey a suggestion to enter
prising young men in quest of a home in the
goodly land. A young man with an ox team
was on his way north through Turner county,
when he met a young lady coming south with
an ox team also. They spoke, and he in
quired if she knew where there were good
claims. She stated that she was holding a
claim and was on her way to visit her brother
in lowa. The Era says:
"You don't want to rent your land, do you,"
he at length asked.
"Can't; only got one shanty and got to live in
that myself until I prove up."
"Yes, I see," said the man, "'Twouldlook bad
for two single folks to live together, although
I've heard ot such things, but I reckon taint
right. Well, madam, it seems to me that your
place needs some one to work it and I need some
one to sew on buttons and cook. Why can't we
hitch teams and go back to the claim and pull to
gether,-" The man spoke in somewhat nervous
tones, but he spoke to the point.
It was fnlly five minutes before the lady made
reply, and she looked quite bright sitting under
the arches of her wagon cover. "Well, stranger,
I don't know much about love or you, but if you
want to take Saray Smith and run you risk, why,
I don't care."
During the reply the man was punching the
mud from the forward wheel of his wagon, bnt
as she closed he looked up with a broad but
pleasant grin and said, "Saray, I tell you John
Jones will do his part, and I reckon you won't be
His head raised and hers lowered, the oxen
jumped as if a dry stick had been suddenly
broken. They both smiled, and as he put up his
arms to help her out they really looked happy.
They went to Marion Junction and were
married at an expense of $1.50, hitched their
teams together and drove back to her claim,
and are happy.

Among those prominently suggested for
mayor of Fargo is Waldo M. Potter, a bonan

the editor of one of the dailies at Davenport,

special interest, and like the average news
paper man, has good horse sense.
The rumor that nas gone abroad to the ef
fect that the last grand jury at Fargo indicted
Capital Commissioner Scott, of Grand Forks,
probably had its origin in the fact that Win
ship, of Grand Forks, was before the jury on
that subject. He did not pretend to know
enough crookedness in the acts of the com
mission to indict any one. In fact, he said
that his opinion of that body was based chiefly
upon what he wanted to know and believe.
The Portland dramatic club recently gave

This from the Dispatch at White Lake, in
Aurora county, does not sustain the impres
sion that deep 6now falls in south Dakota.
More snow fell during the past week than has
fellen during the past two years, yet we have
only about eight inches of snow on a level.
It is the first time we have seen snow
enough for sleighing during our two years
residence in the territory. Two years asro
last November between ten and twelve in
ches fell, but only remained on the ground
two or three days.
The Butte Miner counsels caution in re

From all that has been gathered from that
country it appears that what little gold has
been found was taken from the rim rock of

also learned that the bedrock is slate.
The Big Stone City Herald says: Orton
ville has been holding public meetings the
past week to discuss methods and means to
secure a congressional appropriation to dyke

by the meetings have sent a lengthy com

congress, explaining the feasibility and ad
vantages of the project, and urging its ne
cessity. It is a subject that both sides of the
lake are interested in, and United work
should be commenced and continued until
the government takes some action upon the
On the first maps of the line of the Tower
City & Great Southern railroad, issued by
the company, Valley City was named as the
northern terminus, but this was claimed to
be an er.ior, and all now sent out name
Tower City. This fact, perhaps, had some
thing to do with the rumor of the change.
One of the officials of the road writes from
Tower City the past week: "I desire to con
tradict any and all reports of a sale of our
road or any part of it. Neither has any
change been made in the live as it appears
on the enclosed map. The prospects lor the
completion of the road from Tower ('ity to
Sioux City during this year have been good,
and never better than at this date."
There are not a few people in Dakota who
are inclined to this sort of feeling. Within
the past two or three weeks a great horde of
Dakota politicians have been monkeying
around Washington, and have so disgusted
congress, that is now no possibility of any
thing being done for Dakota in the way of
division, admission or opening up the Sioux
reservation, or anything else that will benefit
the people. "Oh! Deliver us from our poli
ticians," is the piteous wail sent up from the
people of Dakota. In the smaller and am
bitious new towns in Dakota, the columns of
the local papers are largely taken up with the
recording and jubilating births, twins require
extra issues. These domestic occurrences
are phenomenally numerous in some locali
James Hales, a large wheat grower in Far
go, makes the statement that in 1881 he
noted a single stool of wheat in his oat field,
which had twenty two stalks from one kernel.
These contained 800 grains. The next
spring he planted 7r50 of these grains, and
700 lived and produced one-fifth of a bushel,
or at the rate of forty bushels per acre. Last
spring this one-fifth bushel wa9 planted and
cultivated carefully, and he has just meas
ured up seventeen bushels at the rate of
fifty seven bushels to the acre. In three
years a single kernel produces seventeen
bushels, Mr. Hales thinks that with good seed
and proper cultivation from thirty to fifty
bushels an acre of No. 1 hard can be grown
every year in the Red river valley.
Fargo Argus, 20th: In 1881 James Holes,
of this city, noticed a single stool of wheat
in his oat field; this stool, which had sprung
from one kernel, consisted of twenty-two
stalks headed out. These contained 8('0
grains. In 1882, 700 of these were planted,
and 900 grew, yielding one-fifth of a bushel,
or at the rate of forty bushels to the acre.
Last spring this wheat was planted and care
fully cultivated; the product has just been
measured, and is seventeen bushels, an In
crease of eighty-five fold, and a yield of fif
ty-six bushels and thirty-two pounds to the
acre. Seventeen bushels from a single ker
nel in three years is good growth even in
Dakota. Mr. Holes intends to sow seventeen
acres with this grain in the spring, using but
one peck to the acre. He believes that by
using good seed and carefully tilling the soil
Dakotans can secure an average of from
thirty to sixty bushels per acre.

illustrations of what young ladies can do in
Miss Jennie Kelsie and Miss Anna Ches
ney have lately made proof on their claims
at Oak Gulch. These two young ladies came
from Illinois last spring, the former from
Galva and the latter from Abington. They
filed in 119-60, hired houses built and some
breaking done, and with their own bands
planted each six acres of corn and a garden.
They lived on their claims continuously 4
for seven months. They expended about
8500 in improvements, living and other ex
penses, and land office fees. They farther as
sert that they passed the most pleasant sum
mer of their lives, and have better health
than ever before. Last fall they became the
owner of 160 acres each,worth in cash §1,600
each. Figuring out all expenses, each of the
young ladies cleared $1,100 last summer.
Some have supposed that Col. Donan has
moderated his earnest advocacy of division,
on account of his speech before the commit
tee in Washington in favor of the Maginnis
bill. The inference is erroneous. The
colonel and most judicious friends of divi
sion, are quite willing to leave the matter in
the hands of the people of the whole terri
tory. This measuse proposes to leave it
optional with a convention in which all sec
tions are fully represented, as to whether a
part or a whole of the territory shall be in
cluded in the proposed sta.te. Col. Donan
has no question that a body of that sort will
very readily decide that the first experiment
in state making shall compose the section
south of the forty-sixth parallel. The south
is virtually a unit in favor of this, and a
majority of the people of the north will cheer
fully acquiesce. This bill is no doubt a politic
measure for the division scheme, as it gives
the north, nominally at least, and oppor
tunity and share in the arrangment, but
leaves the real control with the two state
The Boseman Chronicle derives from "Wm.
Nevitt, a prominent merchant of Bosemen,
these particulars in regard to the Coeur
d'Alene region which he had just returned
from: He says that it is impossible to reach
the mines at present by any other routh than
Trout creek. He remained two days at the
new town of Belknap, and saw enough to
convince him that the town will be boomed
by the railroad company for all it is worth.
The town as it now exists, is composed of
tents. The town is laid out in the midst of a
dense forest, and lots are being sold from
$400 to §1,000, the cost of clearing
each lot costing .an additional $75.
The company demands spot cash
for their lots, an unusual proceeding on their
part. Mr. Nevitt proceeded to within ate
miles of the mines, and was Informed by a
capitalist coming out that every foot of
ground has been taken up, and building lot*
are being sold for $1,000. Mr. Nevitt saya
it is the height of folly for anyone to under
take to reach the mines for at least six weeks.
The developeraents upon the protracted
examination in the case of parties at Valley
City, charged with exhuming bodies ,in the
graveyard to ship east for sale to medical col
leges, seems to take the shape of a huge prac
tical joke, which should be credited chiefly to
frequent use of a whisky bottle. James Al
len, the ez-priu fighter "and head of the sup
posed conspirators, testified that he was a
taxidermist, and that -stiffs" was the name
given to the heads of deer or antelope, be

on a big spree, and he states that himself
and the attorney both drank six or seven
times, when be showed the attorney seven]
lots of "stills." The attorney fae-tiously
puts it that he was so alarmed that he could
not distinguish between human bodies and

that his powers of discrimination were im

| Moorhead News.]
There are thieves amongus. Wheat thieves
and hay thieves. The farm of Dr. J. E. F.
Davis, of .Moorhead, is between five aud six
miles north of Moorhead. There is a small
shanty house ou the farm and a good si/.ed
wheat warehouse. In this warehouse was
stored 980 bushels of A No. 1 hard seed
wheat, that Dr. Davis was under contract
to deliver at $1.00 per bushel. No one has
been living ou the place during the winter,
but his men have been at work all winter
With his teams hauling wood to the city for
the year's supply, aud the men scrutinized
the granary almost daily. On Wednesday
last the whole amount of wheat was in the
bin all right, and there were no indications
that any one had been prowling
around with the view of stealing it. it bo
happened that the men did not go out after
wood between Wednesday and Saturday, but
on the latter day the\ did go and found
that the granary had been broken into and
a large quantity of wheat had been stolen and
carried away. Tin- Doctor immediately set
the teams to work hauling in the remnant of
his wheat, and it is found that the thieves got
away with WO bushels. This is not only a
<cv.- r .- toss to Mr. Davis, but it is a matter of
the utmost importance to the people of Clay
county that the thieves be ferreted out and
brought to justice. Suspicion attaches to
several parties, and Dr. Davis has employed
a lawyer to trace their guilt.
The theory is that the wheat was
hauled away in the night They had three
nights in which to do the work, namely,
Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday nights,
the 18th, 14th and" 15th instant" Then;
must have been ten two-horse sled loads of
the grain. It is asserted that a gnat deal of
hay has also been stolen out in the same
direction. It may be that the thieves who
stole the wheat may have been seen by somo
unsuspecting neighbor, and who, when he
sees this account may receive a new revela
tion as to the identity of the parties. Any
one having auy knowledge or suspicion in
regard to the matter, is advised to commu
nicate it to Mr. liosness, the county attor
ney, who wil exercise all the powers st hig
command to discover and punish the wrong
