C. S. Richards, constable of pre-
cinct No. 1, did a smooth piece of
work last Saturday when he took
charge of a gentleman who, it is
alleged, had appropriated a horse
and buggy in New Mexico without
the knowledge and consent of the
owner. As soon as Mr. Richards
received notice of the matter, he got
on a warm trail and soon had his
man located in a down-town restau-
rant. Ke found the gentleman at
his dinner and laid his hand gently
upon his shoulder and told him what
he wanted. At first a little discon-
certed, the stranger replied that he
guessed they had the right man.
But he soon gathered his nerve and
finished his thirty-five cent dinner
with good appetite. The party, who
had given his name at the postoffice
as J. W. Martin, where he had reg-
istered a letter containing $25 of the
$4fl that hi haH r# r#ivpd from fien
Cloyd for the horse, but his right
name proved to be J. M. Boykir ,
which he afterwards acknowledged.
Mr. Cloyd was a little uneasy when
he found that he had bought the
wrong horse, but he soon saw his
money again when the alleged party
fell into the hands of the officers.
Boykin had been in town since the
night before but h^d kept himself
scarce around the streets. He, how-
ever, spent two or three hours in the
courthouse, where he wrote several
letters on the stationery of the sheriff.
Of course no one thought he would
use such stationery of the high offi-
cer of the county, but when he was
caught he still had several envelopes
in his pocket. The two gentlemen
who owned the horse and buggy came
up Sunday to identify thei" property.

John A. Johnson.
Uncle John Johnson is dead !
When this m- .-.age was passed along
from friend to friend last Tuesday
morning, the words left a deep feel-
ing of sadness and sorrow in the
hearts of his many friends and ac-
quaintances. Uncle John, as he was
familiarly known by his friends, had
not been in good health for some
months, and for the past several
weeks, he had seemed to be gaining
his former strength. But last Thurs-
day night he sustained a partial
stroke of paralysys, which effected
his speech. From this time, he
gradually grew worse until the end
came at 10 a. m. Tuesday, Au-!
gust, 18, 1908. At his bedside were ¡
a few friends, who had come in to!
administer to his needs, his loving
wife, his adopted son, Lee Johnson
of Snyder, his brother, Jim Johnson
and family of Amarillo, and his nc-
