WOKK OF OFFICER, ltADFOKD.
Arrests Samuel Strickland, Charged
For tho past few months sovoral old pen
sioners of this county have been very great
ly annoyed by having their names Blgnod to
orders on various merchants by unknown
parties. A clue as to the guilty ones was
plocod In "tho hands of Deputy Sheriff Tom.
Radford, who, after working on the case sev
eral days, arrested Samuel Strickland, of the
Fourth District. Strickland was soouting at
the time, and a great diul of caution and
nerve was required to tako him, as ho was
armed with a rille, und besides Is known as a
fearless fellow. However, Tom caught him
oft his guard, and before he know what was
up, hud him In the bag. Strickland agreed to
como to town with the ofllcer, and they both
mounted the sumo horse, Strickland riding
before. When about four miles from town ho
seemed to huve changed his notion about
coming, and with a sudden lunge he threw
both himself and Radford from tho horse and
under his feet ; and then a tusslo for mastery
took place. Both being poworful men, they
rolled and tumbled, but finally Radford got
his pistol out of his pockot and dealt the
prisoner a stunning blow over the left eye
which completely luid him out for the tlmo.
Taking advantage of this short recess, ho
bound him hand and foot, and thus succeed
ed In bringing him in.
William Lowrence, also of the Fourth Dis
trict, was so much interested In the welfare
of the prisoner that he followed him and tho
ofllcer to town, and Into Dossers' store,
wuero Strickland had boen taken for tho pur
poso of identification. Strickland was at
onco identified as tho man who had passed
two separate orders on the store, with the
name of John Murray signed thereto, both of
which turned out to be forged. Lowrence
turned to go out but was Immediately recog
nized by Abe Byrd as an accomplice of Strick
land, having on tho same day that the order
was presented at Dossers' store, cashed a
balance order for him by selling him a knifo.
He too was arrested. At trial on Tuesday
before Sam. S. Klrkpatrick, J. T., both priso
ners waived preliminary hearing, and were
bound to court under $1,000 bond.
M. Jackson, of Johnson City, was present
at the trial and recognized Strickland as tho
party who had, a few duys beforo passed an
order on him with tho name of Joseph Laws
signed thereto. This also was a forgory.
They waived examination on this chargoalso,
and on both charges were committed to jail.
Various articles were found on the persons
of the prisonors that will establish their guilt
beyond a doubt.
Mr. Radford, who worked up the case and
succoeded In bugging the men, is a deputy of
Sheriff Pritcbett, and it can be truthfully said
of him that there is uo bettor ofllcer In tho
county. Ho dtsorves much credit for this
piece of work.

It is bod enough for any one to get drunk

of his own actions as to be able to And tho
only plaoes whore can be found that which
makes him drunk, robs him of his manhood,
and reduces htm to a level below that of
brutes, can just as easily direct hit footsteps
in a different direction.
But the spectacle of mon reeling drank on
the public streets of any place on Christmas

How to Prevent Pneumonia.
At this time of the year a cold is very
easily contracted, and if left to run its
course without the aid of some reliable
cough medicine is liable to result in
that dread disease, pneumonia. We
know of no better remedy to cure a
cough or cold than Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. We have used it quite
extensively and it has always given
entire satisfaction. Olagah, ind. Ter.
This is the only remedy that is known
to be a certain preventive of pneumo
nia. Among the many thousands who
have used it for colds and tho grip,
we have never yet learned of a single
case having resulted in pneumonia.
Persona who have weak lungs or have
reason to fear an attack of pneumonia,
should keep the remedy at hand. The
