FAT HEN PROVED UNDOING OF GRANT WATTSl Phoebus Negro Spied the Chicken -on] Charles Waters' Hen Roost and Now He is in County Jail. The sight of a large. Juicy looking heir, perched on the lien roost of Charles Waters in Phoebus, proved too great a temptation for Grant Watts, colored, who will not even be able to enjoy the fowl for his Christmas dinner today, instead he will take his meals for the coming 20 days at Hotel de Curtis. Wlatts saw the chicken Mondaiy night and he simply allowed the hen to- fly Into Ills arms. Ho said he couldn't overcome the desire of the bird to leave Mr. Waters' roost and threfore ho thought he should not be punished for the acts of the chick? en. The hen was valued at -10 cents by Waters nnd Mayor L. P. Furnoss thought a flue of $5 and costs would be enough to make Watts reflect when he again spies a chicken ill Phoebus. Watts wns nnnhlo to raise the amount of $8.85, which Included the fine and costs, and was given 20 days. SHOT AT CHICKEN THIEF. J.R.Richardson Probably Injured Un? known Night Prowler, s Mr. J. P.
