Ed Sanders and Joseph Haden were arrested Monday and placed in jail for stealing a bale of cotton off the weigher's platI form at the depot. Ed was in the employ of Lcroy Springs <fe Co., and worked at the platform handling cotton. It occurred to him that he had a fine opportunity to make a "raise" by stealing a bale of cotton and getting some fellow to sell it for him. Accordingly an unmarked bale was set aside and an opportunity awaited to get it marketed. He tried one or two parties, but they would have nothing to do with it, j unnKing perilaps there was something wrong. Hut Monday while Mr. J. II. Witherspoon, under whose immediate supervision Ed works, was away, he got lladen to sell it. The bale had been closely watched by Air.

F. llelms with whom ho had some business. Not finding Mr. lleims at home t>ut being told by Ins family tliat lie would be at home soon, he put 1 up tor the night. Later in the evening, alter Mr. Helms had come borne and supper was over, Mr. Little paid Mr. Helms some money he had previously borrowLed of him. About JU o'clock ' he went to his room to retire, '(but beiore lie retired lie some little calculation as to lii.s ! business and took one package ' ot ilie money out ot his grip and ' counted it, putting it back into ihe grip and placing the grip on a chair which sat bv a window, ; the Basil ot which was up, but tin.* blinds were closed.
