In. Last saturday a frustrated by the Clever thinking and Quick acting of John Schad jr., cashier of that institution. A Man named g. Al Merritt giving his address As Mason City had been hanging around Geneva for a Day or so wearing a Star and giving out the information that he was a Deputy sheriff on the Trail of some Moom Hiner. He had driven into j the sheriff goes to Glenville Peter Fosse sheriff of Freeborn county says he did not a understand that he was wanted at Geneva when he was phoned from that City last saturday that an attempt had been made to Rob the Bank there and that the Geneva citizens were in hot Pursuit of tile robber. The worthy Slier ii f with a Fine and careful regard for his hide suddenly remembered that he had some papers to serve at Grenville in fact he remembered it so quickly and the serving of the papers was so urgent that he did not take time to apprise his Deputy of the attempted robbery and instruct him to be on the Lookout for the robber or to go to Geneva and assist in his capture. No Pete had business in Glenville and it just wait not while a la old bad Bank Bandit was at Large in the North end of the county. It looks As though our sheriff Wasny to craving to make the acquaintance of any strange highwaymen and Bank robbers they re such crude impetuous Perrons. And Why should a handsome Man like Fosse v ant to in the risk of having his Appal to Ike Beauty All mussed up in an encounter w Ith a Bank robber. Then too it might injure his social prestige to lie caught mingling with such Low persons. That a right sheriff done to you take any fool chances. When a robber robs a Bank let the banker catch him.

The Farmer said that had he not had himself Well in hand he would assuredly have shed several bucketful of Large wet tears of of sheer sympathy for poor William. As it was when William tin sorrowful got to that part of his Story where he said that probably he would have to Lay off several of his clerks the poor Farmer was so torn w Ith grief that he was Well nigh overcome. However remembering the Many unkind things that Friend William had said about the Farmers organization in Days gone by he managed to recover. Valium then asked the Farmer Why it was that he never came to spend any of his hard earned shekels at the s. C.

And Willie went on his weary Way w without having gained the customer possibly to solicit another league Farmer to Trade at the ant league store. It sure must be Tough when this Bird has to go out in the country and solicit the league Farmers for their internet. Willie at that is probably More to be pitied than censured. He is just another example of the Folly of starting the human Mouth going and then carelessly going away and leaving it to its own devices.
