January 2, 1877
Mr. Yocum and Mr. Brown re-
turned from Dallas today with
the young man on whose person
the most of the watches taken
from the Postoffice Book Store
were found. Mr. Yocum sent a
description of the stolen property
to the sheriff of Dallas the day
after the theft. The sheriff gave
the description to his deputy and
a few days after the latter was
out in the country about 11 miles.
He met a young man on the road
who asked him if he did not wish
•to purchase a watch, handing him
a time piece to examine. The
deputy sheriff at once recognized
the property, arrested the man
and on searching his pockets, he
found ten other watches. He says
he came to Denison from the
north the day before the robbery
was committed, that the next day
he was at the depot and saw two
men secrete a paper box under
the platform. As soon as they
went away he examined the box
and found it contained the
watches which were found on his
person. He at once decided to
appropriate the property and re-
turning to the Valley House, got
his baggage, secured the box and
jumping on a freight train left
the city, making his way to Dal-
las. His arrest was purely a for-
tunate circumstance, as the of-
ficers did not have a description
of him. He is now languishing in
the ca'aboose here and unless he
is entirely lacking in ingenuity, lie
may stay there until safer quar-
ters are provided for him at Sher-
man. but culprits of average sense
usually stumble out the first night
where freedom is an object.

THE DENISON PREV
The regular New Year's fete of
the Vorwaerts took place at their
ha.l on Burnett avenue Monday
night, Dec. 31st. As usual, only I
members of the society and their'
families were present and the ex-j
ercises partook rather of the na-
ture of a family divertisement
than a formal ball. The Philhar-
monic society's brand was present
and discoursed excellent music
for the dancers, 'till 3 a. m. At
12 o'clock supper was served in
which the culinary superiority of
the German housewife was mani-
fest. Throughout the evening
merriment reigned supreme and
beer and wine flowed like wa-
The ringing of the fire bells
Monday night, Dec. 31, at the
hour of midnight caused a rather
general scattering of people
among house owners who hap-
pened to be present at the Vor-
waerts and Dr. Brownfield balls,
•but on coming up town they
learned that it was only the fire
boys ringing out the old year
and welcoming in the new.

The new St. Vincent sanitarium
in Sherman was formally opened
Friday, January 1, with appropri-
ate and impressive ceremonies.
Pontifical mass was celebrated in
the morning by Bishop Dume of
Dallas and then followed by the
dedicatory services. The sisters
of the institution assisted by a
large delegation of ladies, held a
reception from 3 o'clock to 10
o'clock p. m., and the hundreds of
visitors were shown through the
magnificent building. The di-
mentions of the sanitarium are
180x56 feet, not including the
several porches. It is five stories
high, built of buff pressed brick
and stone. The enclosure covers
I about four acres. This imposing
! structure is an institution of
which the sisters are deservedly
proud and Sherman is certainly
to be congratulated in securing
Lewis Dimmock, aged 12 years
kil'ed eighteen rabbits last Sat-
urday. He received 7 '■$ cents
apiece for them.
Mrs. Todd, who resides on West
Morgan street, met with a painful
accident Sunday. Her finger was
cut off by a sausage griner. It
is a singular fact that her little
daughter, Ethel, met wih a sim-
ilar accident several weeks ago.

HOLLYWOOD (UP)— A youth-
ful inquirer asked May Robson
the other day whether she had
ever played on the stage outside
of New York City.
