I On Monday morning very eariy, a young man by the nam or Bell wis brought be fore Justice Merclllintt, by Constable Hm let, on a charge ol horse stealing. It seems Bell was working for a man by the name of Allman, at Millerstown; this Mr. Altman was formerly from Shamburg, and on Sattir day last scntRell to that place after bil cow furnishing him with a horse and buggy. As Bell was getting ready to start he men tloned an overcoat, and took All man's against bis wile's protestations, while be was away, using language Mrs. Altman considered ungentlernanly, and when ber husband returned the told bim about It, wbicb started bis Ire and suspicions that Bell was not going to , return, and early Sunday morning he staried for Shamburg. but on arriving there could find no traces of Bell, horse, buggy or overcoat. Now ba was sure of bis susplcloune, and after con (tderable hard work and sharp proctlcs as a detective, be found Bell about aix miles from Shamburg 'parking bis girl. Alter getting a warrant, and our Consta ble tbey went to the buuse where ; Ball was, and proceeded to arrest bim, bringing tu Bell's mind tbe old adage "There is many a slip, "Ac. On Bell being brought to Alt man 'a presence be explained that as be was not expected to start back from Shamburg until Monday marning, be thought be would drive ever and see bis girl, thereby having a plasant time, and, as he told Altman, save his horse feed, these bard times. Ou being brought before Justice Mercilllott be was discharged at once. Forest Repub llcao.

It makes the producers Ibat have wells going down in tbat local'ty look sober. Parker A Thompson struck a well oo tbe run below tbe Brawley well, Starr farm, Saturday which tbe workmen claim is do ing about 200 barrels. About all tbe wells In and about Modoc have stopped fiowiug and are being tuoed, wbioh makes the tsrrltory look as though it was not going to bj lasting.

What does bis decision do but put an end lo all social and pleasant relations between unmarried men and unmarried women t Of course, men are not geiug to run the risk of a breach of promise suit by merely calling tender glances ou a young woman, sr gent ly pressing ber hand. Tbey will shun Ibe society of unmarried women, and make up tbe deprivation by establishing friendly w lations with married woman. Now flirta tion with a named woman is rarely a strictly innoc. t amusement. It loooer or liter luvelvei the happioers of all concern ed, and leads te the wreck of ecor'l d fame lies.
