HARNESS THE YEGGS
The yeggs as you speak are pul
ling off some nice little jops in
our county and bordering coun
ties. These boys are getting by
right well and if allowed to con
tinue will get into deep water.
There might be some question
whether they are yeggs or back
door men or amateurs. Anvwav
they have pulled some few suc
cessful jobs which will make
them experts pretty soon if their
success continues.
A yegg is the cracksman ce
luxe. He is often a solitary,
working alone, and is of the class
of criminals who rob county
banks and postoffices. The ex
pert yeggs make a study of
safes and a new design no sooner
comes out than this class of‘,fine
workers master its details. It is
nut li ut; max me,y utx;uint; ca
perts in the sense that a safe
mechanic is, but they master,the
weaknesses.of the safe. It can
be expected, if they tackle any
new design, to show evidences
of their work at such weak
points. If these do not yeild,
they use “soup”(Nitroglycerine)
and blow it open. A yegg goes
after big game and will often
work for weeks to pull off a job.
A back door man is a store
thief who seldom tackles a power
ful safe, and who usually enters
from a side or back door or win
dow. They seldom operate in
the smaller towns and cities, un
less they are amateurs of the
town sport variety. Those cases
seem to have been pulled by
amatt urs and there is no reason
why they should not be reformed
while in the experimental stage
of the game.
A student who has made a
thorough study of this kind of
work done and knows just how
to go about to securing the ma
terial facts for harnessing the
boys would have an easy job'
convincing the boys that they
are doing the wrong kind of
work.
Should the next victim to a
similar job be interested in hav
ing these braves followed by a
student of the University of
Applied Science who can show
them on the screen, be sure to
preserve the evidence, that is not
to allow any ore to handle any
thing whatever that might have
beeii handled by the burglars
and be sure you do not handle it
yourself. Keep folks away as
much as possible until you can
come to the Dwina School on the
St. Paul-Coeburn road or tele
gram the principal of this school
wno can put in touch with a
Graduate of the Uuniversity ol
Applied Science who can handle
to your satisfaction the case if it
can be so handled.
Be'ware of the man who tries
to look like Solomon; he’ll never
make it.
Somebody said that for every
woman who makes a fool out of
a man, there is another woman
who makes a man out of a fool.
If somebody fails to do his
duty in the church, don’t you
quit. Why should you do wrong
because some one else fails to dc
right.

FLEA BITTEN
By Maynard Sutherland
CHAPTER III
Jase lowered his gun with
alacrity, astounded by his bro
ther’s unexpected action.
“Are ye crazy, Bart?”he asked
sharply.
“Not as crazy as it looks like
some other folks are,’’ snapped
Bart, dropping the rifle into the
crook of his arm, but holding it
in readiness. What do ye mean
by throwin’ a gun on ol’ Drum?”
“He’s a sheep-killer, Bart. He
got seven of mine last night over
in the back pasture.”
“Did ye see him do it?”
“No, but he left his track in the
mud down in that swamp.”
“Huh!” grunted Bart contemp
tuously. “Ye i-dentif'ied the
track as his' I reckon.”
“Shore did, Bart. The middle
toe of one foot is missin’. ‘Twas
Drum without a smidge of doubt.
Bart’s eyes slitted and his hand
knotted tightly about the stock
of his rife.
lain t enough, Jase he de
clared quietly. “Thar might be
another dog on the creek with a
toe cut off; an’ ye can’t take
Drum onless ye can prove p’int
blank he done it. I don’t believe
he’ll run sheep because he’s
never pestered any of mine.”
“All right, Bart!” Jase swung
to his saddle. “Ye force me to
take it to the courts, an’ I hate
to do that. Still I reckon ye on
derstand I’m not goin’ to let a
sheep-killin’ hound destroy my
property, an’ mebbe come back
latter an’ get the rest of ’em.
I’m not askin’ ye to pay for them
sheep, Bart. I jest want to be
shore ’twon’t happen ag’in.”
Bart offered no reply, but he
remained standing on the porch
watching Jase until the latter
had disappeared through the gap.
Jase knew that Bart had long
hated him and that this hate was
the primary cause of his defend
ing the hound. Almost a decade
earlier, soon after the death of
Ranse Freeman, their father,
Bart had been appointed admin
istrator of the estate. Jase had
questioned the accounting of the
share of their sister, Abagail,
who had married a marn named
Vance and had moved! to the
county seat. The hearing in
court, when the settlement was
investigated, had proved Jase’s
suspicious well founded, and
since that time Bart had refused
to speak to Jase unless directly
addressed.
Jase halted at the house long
enough to put up his shotgur,
and then he rode to Squire
Greenberry Hill’s place on Twin
Branches over in the direction of
Elkhorn Creek, and swore out a
warrant for Drum. On Thurs
day Constable Cantrell had
placed the dog under arrest, but
had left him in the custody of his
owner after calling Bart’s atten
tion to the penalty of a forfei
ture of four dollars for each day
after the time set for trial if the
dog was not produced.
And so the matter stood, pend
ing trial, but speculation was
rife over the possible outcome
for the citizens of Paw-Paw were
about equally divided in senti
ment, half of them, chiefly the
younger men who spent much
time in the chase, openly advo
cating Drum’s cause, while the
older, more law-abiding element
alligned with Windy Jase. So
far one rough-and-tumble fight
had resulted from the question,
and trouble in several other
instances narrowly averted.
