Jesse Buoy who recently traded his
farm here for C. C. Childern' farm near
Walnut Ridgo, Ark., loaded his car of
effects at Lucien a week ago yesterday
After this man Bucy had gotten all his
belongings off the former place Mr.
Childers, who was already in possession
of the Bucy farm hera, missed a num-
ber of his farm tools and, having good
reosons to believe that they were in one
said Jesse Bucy's possession, got out a
search warrant and he, together with
Constable W. H. H. Goff, went to Lu-
cien to search Bucy’s car. Mr. Child-
ers’ suspicions were well grounded for,
upon searching the car, they not only
found the articles missing, hut many
other articles, which they never dreamed
of him having in his possession. The
matter will not be allowed to rest here
either, but will be reported to the grand
jury and the gentleman that appeared
to be ao light fingered may have to come
back and answer to the charge of theft.
Mr. Childers and brothers and families
have undoubtedly been given a warm
reception, but all can assure them such
occurrences are very rare in this coun-
try and the general run of citizens have
no use whatever for such citizens and
are only too glad to be rid of those of
that stripe and would assist.in seeing
them get their just deserts.
The people are all bnsy
