Horses Stolen! The Cotton Gin.
E. Olmstead Suffers The Loss Of
E. Olmstead had two horses taken
from his pasture tive miles northeast
of Marshall, Monday night. The
thief took tlif animals after a heavy
rain so that trailing them would have
been an easy matter if Mr. Olmstead
had discovered his loss early in the
morning, but he did not miss the an-
imals until about eight o'clock, and ti-
ter a number of teams had traveled
thd roads, obliterating t lie trail. Mr.
Olmstead was able to follow them for
a mile or more, however, when the
track was lost, going east. The de-
scription of the horses follows:'
Brown mare. 5 years old, weight a-
bout 1,200 pounds, hall face, right eye
glass, ball face. Both front feet have
fresh wire cuts, also fresh cots on one
knee and lit ad.
Large bay yearling mare with small
star in forehead. Right knee is a lit-
tle larger than the other.
Mr. Olmstead offers a reward of $50
—$2o tor the return of the horses and
$2"> for the arrest and conviction of
t lie thief. Morse stealing is altoget h-
er t o common, and there is talk of
resorting to tha pioneer method of
.iealing with the thieves.

gasping and showing every evidence
of I he near approach of death. Drs.
Bullisand Court it were hastily sum-
moned and decided the symptoms were
those of poisoning. Restoratives were
immediately administered and tiieir
action was equally prompt.
I n trying to locate the cause of the
poisoning it was found that at break-
fast all three had partaken of oatmeal.
The little child of Mrs. McCoy had
not eaten any oatmeal and was not
troubled at all. While of the other
dishes all partook, In the drinks Mrs.
Detrick and Mrs. McCoy drank coffee,
Mr. McCoy and the child took milk.
So that oatmeal was the onlv dish
that would lit the case. Mrs. Detrick
who was much the worse, had eaten
more heartily of this dish than the
l)r. Condit has the remainder of the
package of oatmeai at his office and
will give it a thorough examination to
tind out if the trouble was from eating

ger and are very thankful indeed that
assistance was reached in time,—Al-
