Had Stolen i,. SterllnK U Kerovered -Hardware
Stock in a Satchel.
Seore another clever catch for
Chief of l'olice Michael 11. Sexton.
He made t hist evening, and this
morning I rouht proof that there
was no mistake about it.
A few ilsys aj;o the chief received
from Chief of Police II. A. Shultz. 0f
Sterlinpr. notifu-at.ion of a hurlarv
committed in a hardware store at
Sterlinjj , n Sept. U, when jroo.ls to
the value of sft'.Vi were stolen, hut
there was no suspicion as to who the
thieves wt re, nor any clews jjiven as
to how t( identify them, except to
keep a lookout for the stolen proper
ty, which consisted of an American
hulldo- levolver m dozen pocket
knives. ne-and-a-half dozen silver
tablespoo is. two-and-a-half dozen
teaspoons, two l.arherV hairclippers,
and a lare horse clipper.
About V.oO last evening Chief Sex
ton went into a sample room uptown
to look around, and as he entered lie
was strin k ly the appearance of two
men who were standing at the liar
drinkino; The more' he watched
them the more suspicious hecamc
their act oils, and as one of them had
a small cjuccr looking satchel the
chief de'ermined to take them into
custody and examine the contents of
the satchel at all events. Kealizinj;
that if the men were guilty ot
any crime they would attempt
to eseap . the oilicer stepped outside,
and in a few minutes found Oilicer

who hail taken his man to the sta

An exchange savs that the Illinois
( entral railroad has discovered a new
and valuable use for electricity. It
is for nothing; else than to kill weeds
alonj; the railway. In order to com
ply with lejral requirements in years
past it has cost the company about
f40 a mile to destroy the weeds.
With the electric ear motor live miles
of weeds can be killed in an hour at
very small expense. The heavily
charged brush runs alonj; about
eii;ht inches above ground and any
ween witli winch it comes in contact,
however bij; or strong, is struck dead
as it were and becomes black as if
smitten with frost.
