put to cutting wood. it was rainy and
disagreeable, and before the close of the
day, the boy ente:ed the house and
treated himself to a coat and vest. He
then appropriated a lady's satchel con

finger rings, and several ornaments of
less value. -In the evening he came to
town to dispose of b:s valuables and
was soon the ce've of as admiring
crowd of negro boys. He sold one ring
to Mr. Jas. F. Todd for fifty cents, but
is not able to e:plain exactly how he
disposed of the other articles. The
other ?ng he so!d to Mr. B. M. Dennis.
