He said their belt gave away suddenly that day and that he came to Chillicothe to get a belt after having failed to find what he wanted in a couple other towns. He claimed he had author ity to purchase anything that was needed in a hurry for the Bridge company. He told us to look up their rating. We did so and found that they were all 0. E. He had ns render an invoice for the goods and he said he would write a letter along with the invoice and 0. E. the Invoice and we would get our money in a few days. His story was plausible and he had the appearance of being the fore man of a bridge gang and we let him have the belt, which amounted to $10.11. We did not receive the draft from the '""fridge Ctand so we wrote them in re r 'gardtfii the matter and they immediately wrote us that this man was an imposter and that they had a letter from you nnd er date of November 26, stating that you had him in jail and was no doubt the same man that we were looking for, and sure enough it was. Our mayor soon made up his mind that this man was an old timer and he (rave him a good stiff which we think he deserves." Yours respectfully, Gillum & Spetnagel. W. W. Harvey is on the sick list.
