Crabtree, and carried away Mrs. Grabtree's gold watch, chain, two finger rings and set of ear rings. Mr. Crabtree happened to go home and met a man coming down stairs. Ho went up stais and inquired of Mrs. Crabtree if she had seen anyone in the house and sho replied that Bhe had not. Upon looking around it was soon ascer tained that tho property was gone and the alarm was given. Conveyances were sent east and south and in about an hour Geo. Blinn and Geo. Stew.irt returned with the thief, whom tliey had captured near Jackson's crossing, on the Big Four, northeast of Wellington. They returned to town and placed him in jail.

Great credit is due all concerned for the interest they manifested in the case in leaving their JACKETS ID CAFES Coiiimtm I'lons Court. A ltrlef History of the Kvll DolngH in the Last Thirty Years. Wellington, in common with other towns has its history of the deeds com mitted by evil minded persons. In look ing back over the records, we find in the month of August, 1805, that the First Xational Bank was robbed of $C5,0()0, in bonds and money, aside from a num ber of thousand dollars in bonds and money, that had been left in the vault by individuals for safe keeping. The bank was then located in a frame build ing that stood upon the premises hat are now occupied by the Benedict block. The affairs of the bank were not em barrased to prevent the usual transaction of business even on the following day. A large share of the funds were subsequently recovered, by the careful work of detectives. The next crime was the death of Wil liam Ilines, who was found dead at the foot of a stairway, leading from the street to the Morning Star saloon, which was located on what is now known as the south side of West Main street.

The next is the shooting of Marshal Brenner by parties that were lurking around the town. His assailant was caught and sentenced to the penitentiary tor life. The next was the shooting of Sage by Hoke, and Hoke in turn taking his own life. The circumstances that cause! the. nnfnrtunato occurence are still too You know what that means, coming from us.

On account of the large number of persons confined in jail since the grand iurv completed their labors for the spring term it became necessary to em panel a special grand jury that their cases might be brought before them and be ready for a hearing this term if the prisoners desired it, otherwise they would be compelled to lie in jail until the November term, which would be very unpleasant as well as a great expense to the county.
