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

ed by breaking through a barb wire]
fence. Blood spots Indicated that the
man was hurt.
Wnen Mr. Richardson heard the dis?
turbance in his hen house he got his I
gun, but Ihn thief started to run,]
whereupon Mr. Richardson fired.
