SACRIFICE SALE This Cnps tho Climax Chicago, July 29. The police have succeeded in capturing a 16-year-old robber, with achievements in horse stealing unparalleled in this part of the country. His name is given as Edward Brown and he claims to have come from Kendall county, Texas. About the 6th of June Brown came in with a carload of Texas ponies and when his friends had sold their stock and returned home he formed the acquaintance of Charles Crane aged' 10 also hailing from Texas. Brown soon proposed that they go into the horse stealing business on a large scale be ing convinced that it would be very profitable. A business partnership was formed between the two Texans and a barn rented in the west sida of the city that would hold about twenty horses. Nightly forages were begun and were successful. The boys hired five men as grooms bought hay by the ton and oats by the carload. In less than twenty four hours after they star ted in business they had stolen five horses and sold three of them for li beral prices. The boldness of their plans was remarkable. They would hitch two stolen horses to a stolen carriage and drive along Michigan avenue until they saw a team which suited them. To see a good horse meant ownership for them for they would follow it home and in all pro bability secure it that night. Every few days the two Texans would go out in the suburbs to look for good horses. They stole them from Hyde Park, Grand Crossing South, Chicago Engle wood and other suburbswest and south. Their stable became full of valuable norses ana citizens oegan 10 irequeni their stables for the purpose oi buying stock. Business prospered and the whilom cowboys blossomed out in radiant raiment. All this time com plaints were coming into police head quarters thick and fast but they could not find the thieves. July 12, how ever was a fatal day for the adven tureres. They stole a horseand buggy from a north side citizen and drove to a blacksmith shop riear by to have some slight repairs made. While waiting, one of them stole the black- smith's watch and was soon accused RETAIL . DEPARTMENT Lbiii I. HID Isaac Lewis' HAVING SUCCEEDED TO THE BUSINESS LATELY OWNED BY H. B.'OIAJEIvXJV & Co.

As toon as the boys had left the blacksmith made complaint at the Lakeview police station giving a good description of the bandits. Detective was detailed on the case. He was about to give up search in the early part of last week when he saw the boys driving west on Washington boulevard. He secured ahorse, followed them to their -ham and shadowed the place for three or four days as he could not believe they alone could have been guilty of such a gigantic scheme of horsestealing as was before his eyes. Crane became suspicions of the espionage and fled, but Brown was arrested. On his per son was found $400 in cash. Twentj five horses and eighteen stolen vehi cles have already been turned up and more are coming in every day. The horses are unformly fine and the vehicles range from dog cart to four-in-hands. Brown confessed every thing to Capt. Nillers. The stolen property is being restored to the pro per owners as fast as it can be secured and identified. nlff Monro in Fort Worth. Fort Worth, 28.
