Oia otflcer. Mrs. Anna Patsoz, the officers
say, brought a suit case containing
a gallon of whiskey in a jug, a
quart of brandy ana a quart of rum.
She came to Fairmont over the Pennsylvania
lines froti Brownsville, Pa.,
where she bought (be whiskey for ber
husband who works in the mines at
Grant Town It was while she was
waiting on the trolley car that the officers
picked her up on Main street.
When she was arrested Mrs. Patsox
was taken to the county Jail and there
asked why Humphreys was not subject
to arrest also. Sheriff Glover and several
officers heard her story and believed
it. Jailer Thomas V. Buckley
summoned Justice Conaway to his office
and swore out a search and seizure
warrant and a warrant for Humphreys
arrest as well.
According to what the woman said
Humphreys came to Fairmont on the
same train that she took and he had a
suit case and s small .grip partially
filled with bottled whiskey. Satisfied
with the correctness of the woman's
statements Sheriit Glover sent Constables
Michael a.id Itobinson. Deputy
Sheriff Hood and Night Chief Seaman
to arrest Humphreys, a number of
these men having been pressed into
service because o' e number it th?
deputies being in Wheeling.
HcfOd.and Michaoi went to tne door
and.* accoraftig to their report ol the
incident, Humphreys answered, "What
the H the matter," pretendli g not
to know what the officers came for.
Soon Humphreys opened the door and
drew a revolver with which he covered
Michael who was ten feet ahead of
Hood. Michael managed to grab the
arms in which Humphreys had his revolver
and a tussol ensued, in short
order the men had clinched and were
at the end of the nail. At this juncture
Hood rushed in and covered
Humphreys with e.-s gun and shortly
afterwards Seaman came rushing to
the spot with a flash light in lilt hand
and a drawn gun. Robinson had followed
Seaman, bet he retraced his
steps as Humphrey's revolver was
leveled sight at him. Seeing that he
was overpowered Humphreys gave up.
Humphreys' gun in the tussel had
snapped and one of Michael's fingers
was caught in it.
Humphreys then made s request ot
the officers that he he given a chance
to eat some supper. At this Juncture
Kotnnsou knowing tnat Humphreys
was a dangerous man took Sheriff
Glover's son, Edgar, to the automobile
and at the same time removed Humphrey's
suit cases to ihe machine. While
he was gone Humphreys made a dash
from the house and apparently has
made good his escape.
Shortly after Humphreys left the
rear door Deputy Sheriff Hood fired
two shots at him while he was beating
a hasty retreat, bu> 'hat is all that happened.
Humphreys hails fiom tbr lower part
of West Virginia and was a ecustaole
in the Cabin creek car strikes He tre

the romance of John E. Billlngsley
nd Rena Brown Bllllngaley finally
ent to amaBh this morning when
ohn E.'a euit for divorce came up be>re
Judge Vincent, in chancery court.
The match apparently was particiated
in by persons of mature age for
te bridegroom ia now 76 years old and
ia wife la 46 years
There ia an interesting story of
ourtshlp back of the case. By agreelent
the couple met in the county
oad, where Rev. YV. F. Cannon tied
ae knot of connubial bliss on July 4,
914. Then, the story goes, that the
room went his way and the bride her
>ay and they never lived together a
linute.
The usual proceeding hud so baf!ed
genial Judge Y'incent that he deided
that he wanted some time to |
sink it over. The case he is holding I
nder consideration while the lawyers
re getting busy looking up the pros
nd cons of the 'aw. Amos & Amos
re the attorneys tor the plaintiff.
The action of Willa S. Flowers ys.
larence H. Flowers for a divorce was
ttached by Judge Vincent. The case,
'as heard and the plaintiff was grantd
a divorce and also given the custody
f three infant children. The defendnt
was directed to pay $60 a month

the plaintiff.
The next case tried was that of the

teir guilt. The Judge gave the boys
nother chance to be good and placed
