There is a white man in the

about begging something to eat.
He has been seen about a week.
The last seen of him to know
that he is the same man was
last Sunday morning at S. F.

to eat. On Monday night after
he was seen on Sunday, some
man was seen at J. R, Foster's
and Mr. Foster shot at him.
We do not know whether it is
the same man or not as it was
in the night. The man has red
complexion, is about six feet
tall and will weigh about 165
pounds. He is dirty and ragged
and looks to be about 35 or 40
years of age. -He looks to be a
fool to see him, but. Hovie Single

him and says he has an educa

He says he is a drunkard and
has been all his life. The mys

name and no one knows who
he is. Some think he has done
sonme great crime some where
and has escapedl. Th'ie women
of this section are all scared of
him. The sheriff should look
