Jesse Stout was arrested Mon
day charged with taking brass
pieces from a steam engine be
longing to Wm. Wear, just north
ol the city. Mr. Wear found the
brass at the second hand store of
Dixon Bros. At the trial on Tues
day the state failed to make its case
sutliciently plain to cause a convic
tion of Stout and he went lree. Mr,
Stout is a poor man in poor health,
with a targe family, and has a hard
row to hoe in a general wiy, and
possibly in this case is more to be
pitied than blamed. He may be
the creature of unfortunate circum
stances. Others may be more to
blame than be is.
