Sheriff Du son was informed of the fact on Wednesday evening. He immediately telegraphed to the Sheriffs of the ad joining parishes, and to Mr. V. Meynaud at the Alernientau ferry, to ascertain if the thief had crossed the Mermeiitau river. Mr. Meynaud promptly tele graplied to the Sheriff that a man an swering the description had just passed ou his way to Lake Charles. Sheriff Reid was notified, and ou Thursday morning when Alberti arrived in Lake Charles he was ariested and the money recovered. Deputy Sheriff Hayes left here Friday morning and will meet Sheriff Heid at the parish line and will receive the prisoner. This is quick and good work. An Open £.eiter. To C. M. Thompso;.'.
