Set for trial during second week. Hearing will be before judge Schoonover of Fountain county. Last sunday evening Between the hours of 8 and 9 o clock while or. Bender and his family and the men who Are making ties and Are stopping at the Bender Home were All seated in the parlor around the stove some Tellow with no Lack of nerve and without even a verbal invitation entered the Kitchen by the rear door. Just what he wanted or what was his purpose no one knows because he was frightened away before the family retired or before they had time to make an invoice of the House. One of the men stopping at the Bender Home had occasion to go to the Kitchen and As he stepped from the sitting room into the Kitchen he saw the figure of a Man disappearing through the rear door and heard the door close. So near was he to the fleeing Man that he could have caught him by the coat Collar but no thought entered his mind that a thief was in the House at this time of night. When the thief passed out the door he the tie maker turned Back to see if All the other men were in the room and noting that they were he then told them what he had seen and heard. The other men and or. Bender at once got Busy and began to search about the barn cribs and other outbuildings but their unwelcome and uninvited guest had made Good his escape. It is presumed that the Fel of had entered the House with the intention of secreting himself until after the family and men had re ired and then Rob the House of its valuables and take what Money he could find in their clothes. It would be a mighty Good plan if you Are sitting in the front part of your Louse in the evening to securely Asten the rear door no matter whether you live in town or in the country. It is possible too that the same party that visited the Bender Home is the one who broke into the Dwiggins meat Market and stole the $3.00. Chas. Swadley of Lafayette came to this City the fore part of last week and made complaint to prosecutor Mehaffey of one James Henderson who resides on the Swadley place near Independence in which he accused the defendent of taking 108 bushels of Corn More than his allotted share. An affidavit was promptly prepared a Bench warrant ordered issued and placed in the hands of sheriff Mcferren. The sheriff arrested the defendant at Attica and brought him to Williams port at once. The Case came up for hearing wednesday morning and the defendant upon being arraigned before judge Berry entered his plea of guilty thereto. The court after examining into the Home life of the defendant and after making inquiry of the defendant s past life and character decided that it would be Best for society generally that the sentence be suspended subject to the defendant s Good behaviour and on the further condition that he repay to or. Swadley the value of the Corn taken and that he pay court costs in said Case. Roll Call of Bryant 62, 6. A. R. Post no. Listen to the Bugle Call come away come away.

Dwiggins meat Market is gained by removing a pane of Glass from rear Windova. Library opening Fine program has been arranged for this special occasion. About 11 o clock sunday night or perhaps a Little before this hour a sneak thief of the lowest and dirtiest Ype effected an Entrance into the Dwiggins meat Market and took $3.00 in Smalt change from the Cash Register. Night watchman col. Briggs in his rounds discovered the rear door open and went to the Home of Herman Wockner who has charge of the shop. Or. Wockner dressed and came up town and on enter Jig found that the Cash Register had been robbed of its contents. Examination of the premises revealed the fact that the thief had to work some Little time to effect the Entrance As he first Tore off the screen then removed the Glass reached in and a loosened the fasting on either Side before he was Able to raise the lower Sash. It is also evident that he made quite a Little noise because when he removed the pane of Glass which was broken the top half fell onto a piece of Marble just on the inside of the window. It is also evident that the thief was not looking for anything but Money As or. Wockner was unable to miss any meats and As nothing else was apparently disturbed. After the thief had secured what Cash there was available he unfastened the rear door passed out and left it open.
