The Kansas outfit , which was arrested
last Friday evening for robbing L. T.
Slcover , a poor fool in a helpless state
of beastly intoxication , had a hearing
before Squire Fisher , Saturday. Jen
nings and Starbuck were attorneys for
the accused , while Lucas & LeHew ap
peared in behalf of Sleover. Upon mo
tion of the Judge , a change of venue
was taken to Squire Eaton of Driftwood.
One of the prisoners , Armstrong , was
placed under $100 bonds , Kendall go
ing his security. The case was to have
come up before Squire Eaton , Tuesday
morningbut some time during the niglit
of Monday , the gang quietly folded their
tent and silently stole away into bleed
ing Kansas. The bondsman promptly
came forward and paid the forfeited
bail , although the team and wagon upon
which he held a bill of sale had unfor
tunately ( ? ) gone , hours beforethe , same
direction , at about the identical time the
fugitives from justice vamosed. Thus
through carelessness or connivance , the
scoundrels succeeded in escaping their
The manner in which the accused got away ,
shows something akin to complicity , an of
fense , which in the eyes of the law , merits
severe condemnation and punishment.
Sunday morning , Sleover himself was ar
rested and brought before Squire Colvin on
the charge of drunkenness. He was fined $3
and costs , in all , § 7.35 , which he payed and
The next morning , after the birds had flown ,
legal proceedings , to replevin the team and
wagon of the gang , were instituted. The
bondsman , ' it appears , lost nothing and was
cognizant of the departure of the thieves at
the time they went.
The set-to between attorneys Lucas am
Starbuck , during the progress of the trial , oc
casioned considerable uproar , interfered with
the appearance and utility of the frosted glass
hi the door leading into Squire Fisher's office
was discreditable to the participants , and ad
ded no dignity to either. Proper decorum
should be exacted from attorneys , or they
ought to be debarred from practice.
ESF Hallack & Howard for Lumber
and all kinds of Building Material.
Quite an exciting little episode oc
curred on West Dennison street , some
months since , which has just come to the
ears of our reporter. It appears that
the trusting wife of an individual resid
ing in that locality had become aware of
the moral turpitude of her liege lord ,
through information confidentially
vouchsafed her by a neighbor's wife
and that the trusting wife subsequently
raised the thermometer of her liege
lord's feelings to agehena-sheol heat by
upbraiding him for his infidelity. In
the course of events , it so happened
that the husband of the woman who
was the confidential adviser , and the
liege lord in questionwere peacefully ,
wending their way home together , where
upon the irate 1.1. took occasion to refer
to the matter in terms in consonance
with a vulgar nature hardened by years
of transgression , denouncing the whole
female portion of the neighborhood with
unmeasured virulence. This was prompt
ly and emphatically resented by the
other by a blow in the mouth. The
I. 1. dives into his capacious pocket for
his jack knife ; the insulted neighbor
follows suit ; the 1.1. flies , the indignant
and manly neighbor pursues ; the 1. 1.
begs for quarters and pardon , flic fabu-
la docet the 1. 1. greater caution when
referring to the virtue of his neighbor

"People Who Live in Glass Houses
Should Not Throw Stones. "
Last spring , the Bailey boys on Blackwood
had one of those "old reliable" open wheel
mills and tower demolished by the winds.
Sunday night at Benkelman , one of those
'old ' reliable" open wheel rattle traps , tower
and all , were blown to atoms. Just here let
me say that no wind mills are warranted
against storms that destroy other adjacent
property. But experience has shown that
the chances are three to one in favor of the
loiseless , perfect self-regulating solid wheels ,
with their staunch towers and ami braces ,
standing the storm. PerMjns who will take
the pains to examine the different mills , after
a few month's use , will not hesitate a moment
in deciding which is the most meritorious.
The Woodmanse takes the first premium.
