Slater, who had the county worked
up only a short while ago, over
the miniature Olllett game, which
he tried to work and the successful
escape made to Mexico, is now in
the custody of police officials. Un
like bia model, he ventured back
into the tf. S. and was quickly lo
cated by some of his creditors,
who will soon have him back In
Saline on trial. The charge
azalust him in the indictment for
which he baa been held, is the em
bezzlement of certain money which
he should havo turned over to the
Chicago Live Stock Commission
Co., on two cars of cattle shipped

This is all supplementary to what
the facts are in the case and go to
wards making the whole affair
more exciting and furnishing a
more interesting story. All the
romance as to how "people looked
up to him here, and thought that
what hedidu't know wasn't worth

Iiiinlly, at his earnest solicitation,
he was joined iu the City of Mexi
co by a womau of Kansas City by
the name of McClctland. But the
climate of Old Mexico did not
agree with the McClelland woman,
and she longed to return to ber
native land. She finally prevailed
upon Storts to accompany her to
California, where she had friends.
This Is one story. Another is that
Storts cashed a bogus draft at a
Mexican bank and found it advisa
ble to leave the country post baste."
'While in Mexico, Storts wrote a
leftle to a Slater paper which reads
very much like the communica
tions which Grant C. Glllett sent
from the same country to divers
persons in Kansas and Missouri.
He hoped the people wouldn't
judge him too harshly. They
didn't know what troubles be had
. bad and bow be had struggled
gainst fate in an effort to do the
tight thing, and all that,"
"Storts end the Me'-'lellaud
woman remained In Los Angeles a
short time only. I'rom there they
jotirncyed to New York City, and
were for a few days lost in the mad
rush of the metropolis. But the
fugitive's funds' ran low, and in
order to replenish his depleted ex
chequer, so It Is alleged, lie cashed
a bogus draft on one of his Mis
souri friends for $1,370. This lit
tle transaction made the climate ol
the metropolis anything but condu
cive tohls health, and Storts and his
companion again crossed the con
tinent, returning to Los Angeles.
There the fugitive fell into the
hands of the authorities."
There is little of this which
sounds reasonable, but supposing
that it were true, the letter pub
lished first in the Miami News
purporting to be from Storts, long
ing for home, but afraid to venture
there, was quite a smooth little

Thursday's Capital states that

city of Sedalia and county of Pettis
must perform that task. Not that
the city or the county will fall or
reluse interment to its pauper

the city not o)poor that this would
