It seems, from what we learned,
that Dr. Short, some six years
ngo, before leaving Mississippi,
forged a note for $3,500 und signed
four or five prominent men's names
to it. He hod the note cashed by
Ben Price, cashier of the Oxford
bank, and every year as tho note
would come due Short would pay
the interest on it and havo it ex
tended another year.
This has been kept up all the
time, and the parties who were allj
leged to havo signed the note know
nothinj of it. In the meantime
Dr. Short got into trouble out
here, and perhaps his nuances ran
low. The toto fell duo again, and
as it was not looked after, tho
bank notified the endorsers that it
was due and uupaid.
