Jnj It appears that what the boyaljT tended wns to taken thp auto to.Oalii fornia, where they said tho cWlBgt wintor would not bo so cold.'.' 'IiC proof of this, also, is the fact that after leaving American Fork 'theyi broko into tho Cutler Gnrago nt Lehl and stole some new tires, several gal lons of cylinder oil, n supply of spark" plugs and other things they., might need on u long Journey. The boys also hud two quilts of Mr. Knight's, found In tho auto, and each had taken' two moro from home, making elx with which to keep wurm on the Ne-' vada desert.
