instead of going straight in and was removed Sun day by Drs Southard and Lawrence and since then the patient has been doing very nicely He is now thought to be entirely out of danger No one was

the December term of the Circuit Court on a bond of 000 each which they failed to give A part of the missing goods were found at Bussels home and a part at the home of Jones The defendants claim they bought the goods but we are told that Jones has already made two different statements one that he bought his goods tram R A WhIt ebead and a notherthat he bought them from a giveInot are a most serious charge and having the goods in their possession makes the evidence pretty strong There has been entirely too much stealing going on in the county for the past few months an J of all people to be feared it is the thief and second the liar LATER Jones realizing that he is up against it and that the easiest way out is the best tells the whole story He says that he and Bussel robbed Harve Minks store three times and Wesley Minks store twice and that they also stole two sides of meat from one of the Pitmans He also incriminates Tobe Carpenter He said that one of the times when he and Bussel robbed Harve Minks store Carpenter was along and held their horses while they did the work for which they gave him one of the five sacks of flour which they got It seem that Bussel 4s recognied

25000 000 He made this vast sum in seventeen years This collossal fortune was made at the expense of hundreds and thousands of small merchants in all parts of the country How much money did Mr Sears
