Arriht of h Sust I!y the Sheriff of Nt-
From Thursday's I;illy.
SlicrilT Hollow ay received a tele
gram frowi the slk-ri II" :it Auburn last
evening stating that he had under ar-re-a
at that p!at-e a man who had
roods in his possession which
answered the description of those
taUcn from the general merchandise
store of C. (J. P.uckwell at Alvo last
Friday niht. The Nemaha sheritF
ha.l no description of the thief, but
will hoid this man until an investiga
tion is made. County Attorney C. S.
Polk went to Alvo today to see if ho
could secure any evidence leading to
the detection of the party who com
mitted the r. h.rry. Jt is possible that
someone saw the thief the day pre
vious to the robbery and would be
able to identify him. The sheriff is
serving papers in the southern part of
the county today, and will zo to Au
burn tomorrow after the man.
The sheriff is rrc;itly handicapped
ia rapturing thieves trom the fact that
where robberies occur in the small
town out in the county they neglect
to promptly send in a description of
the stolon property, or of the thieves,
if any is had. The lirst intimation
thehei-iiT had of the Alvo robnery
w:l-i ML hen ho sav an account of it in
Wednesday morning's paper. A thief
would have ample time to reacn
Canada in that time, if ho so desired
