EV liNIER FALSE PRETENSE.
ARREST MADE ON LAST SUNDAY.
On last Sunday J. H. Green,
landlord of the Green Hotel on
the south-weet corner of the
square, was arrested, charged
with having obtained money un-
der a false pretense. He had
made several deals in the past
year or two, and was securing
ioans on the endless chain plan.
He borrowed money from C. T.
Herring and bought cattle there-
with. Later on he borrowed
$2100 from the Jones-Old Bank
at Granite. The next deal was
to sell his home for $2800, the
proceeds of which were used in
liquidating the Jones-Old Bank
incumbrance and nearly all of the
Herring debt. Later on he gave
the First National Bank of Man-
:gum & mortgage on one hundred
.•head of cattle for a loan of $970.
When the mortgage became due
the president of the bank notified
Mr. Green but he paid no atten-
tion to it. About a month ago
the president of the bank came
down, and he and Green went out
to look at the cattle. They oould
not find but about thirty head of
them. Green then told the bank
representative that he had about
fifty head of cattle at the J. W.
MoCIurg place, near Navajoe,
which had not been included in
the original mortgage, and he
then and there gave a mortgage
on them. As soon as this was
done the banker started immedi-
ately for the McClurg place to
look at the cattle. When he ar-
rived he was told that Green had
not had any cattle there for two
years. The banker returned to
Mangum and notified Mr. Green
that if the money was not forth-
coming soon he would deal
harshly with him. Green heeded
it not, and a few days ago the
banker came down to have an
interview with Mr. Green. He
feigned sickness, however, and
the bank representative returned
home disgusted. Green has been
■“dangerously ill” to his acquain-
tances for several days, but has
several times during this “ill-
ness” been seen assisting with
the work in the dining room and
kitchen. Just what Mr. Green
did with the cattle, or the money
he received for them, if he con-
verted them into money, remains
a mystery to his friends and ac-
He was taken in custody by
deputy sheriff Henry Sunday,
and they proceeded to Mangum
the following day.
He gave a temporary bond at
Mangum, and a permanent bond
is being made here this week.

Chapman and Mis9 Grace Chap-
man, all of Blair, were initiated

place last Tuesday night.

Quanah, has been in the city sev-
eral days. He expects to leave
Quanah in a short while, and will
perhaps settle in Greer. Leger,
just at present, is para-mount
in his mind.

—W. W. Duvall, of Vernon, was
in the city Friday and Saturday.
Duvall is looking well—his cor-
pulency suggesting that he is still
enjoying three rectangular meals
One night the latter part of last
week some one purloined a big,
fat, juicy ham from thejresidence
of F. M. Trimble. The meat box
of this quiet home can be found
on the back porch, and this porch
is enclosed with screen. Ascreon
door makes egress and ingress
possible. On that night some one
cut a small opening in the door,
and by so doing was enabled to
lift the latch on the inside. Hav-
ing thus gained entrance they
were at liberty to take whatever
they desired. They took a ham
for which Mr. Trimble had just
recently paid $4.65. Mr. Trimble
has missed such things as hay,
cotton seed, etc., during the win-
ter, but had not paid much atten-
tion to it. He thinks now that
he has the party “spotted” and
should he be apprehended, Mr.
Trimble will probably make it
interesting for him.
—Henry Ricks, a deputy under
ex-Sheriff Blalock’s administra-
tion, and one of the “nerviest”
men in the county, was here
Tuesday, and his name can now
be found on the Plaindealer list.
He is now living near Navajoe,
and informs us that when the
railroad gets here the most of the
trade of that community will come
to Leger. He opines that this
will make a good town, and will
be a good trading point.
For oil kinds of Photographic
work call on C. W. Gilliland, at
Mangum; the oldest and most re-
liable photographic establishment
in the county. 11-tf.
—“Uncle Buck” Russell, whose
candidacy for county recorder is
beginning to be recognized as a
strong one, came in from the
western part of the county Sun-
day evening. He reports his

—A. A. Morris, and little son re-
turned the first of the week from
a trip to Baylor County. Mr.
Morris says prospects there for
wheat are good.
—W. H. Yow dropped in to sea
us one day this week. He re-
ports having found a pocket-book
containing six pieces of money.
It was found in the western part
of town near where the wagon
road crosses the Orient road.
The owner can have same by cal-
i'fgon Mr. Yow and giving an
.ecurate description thereof.
—The Plaindealer begs of its pa-
trons not to believe us boastful,
but we wish to say that the rapid-
ity with which our subscription
list is increasing is a phenome-
non. On last Saturday we start-
ed out to solicit a few subscribers,
and when we had secured thir-
teen, it seemed that we could go
no higher—had met our Water-
loo. Being of a superstitious
nature we “labored with ’em,”
until we scored fourteen sub-
scribers FOR THAT DAY.
