He claimed a young fellow near him attempted to get his hand in his pocket where his cash was lo cated. He taxed him with it and threatened to annihilate him when the fellow jumped olT the train and started down the track to the west as fast as his legs could carry him. A number who were witnesses took after him and a lively footrace ensued. Under Sheriff Fales caught on to the racket and jumping into W.C.Spicer's rig which happened to be handy, headed him off near Dixon's old laun dry. He was searched and some six or seven dollars found upon him as well as some evidences that his busi ness was not legitimate. The only man however who could give any pos itive evidence against him had gone with the train and would not return for several days so he was given his liberty and did not lose any time in making himself scarce. That he was a regular bad 'un there is but little doubt, and it is too kad that he was able to get off so easily.
