r'rom Saturday"! Dally.
W. II. flecker, convicted of re
ceiving stolen property; Simon
Meirs, convicted of robbery from,
the person, and Fred Maines,
convicted of assault and battery,
were taken before Judge Travis
this morning and received sen
tences. In the case of the State
vs. fieekor, a motion for a new
trial, containing seventy separate
assignments of error, was sub
mitted lo the court and overruled.
Hecker was sentenced to five
years in the penitentiary at hard
labor (Sundays and hollidays ex
cepted) for the term of Hve years.
The statute provides a penalty
of from three to seven years in
the penitentiary for receiving
stolen property. The sentence
of tho court is the same as that
given Crawford, the partner of
Hecker in the wheat stealing.
The penalty fixed by statute
for Hie offense of robbery from
the person, by putting ono in
fear, is from three to fourteen
years in the ' penitentiary, and
from the evidence in the
case Meirs did not get more than
he deserved. Maines was given
three months in jail for assault.
Demolished the Binder.
, Reuben Stine started his har
vest work Monday by purchasing
a new binder, and there's more
of the tale to tell, because early
that morning he owned a good
binder that in a minute's time
had its value reduced to about 13
cents in trading stamps. Reuben
bad attached his team to the ma
chine with the intention of har
vesting more bushels to the aero
Mian any of his neighbors, and
stepped a short distance away to
quote a few lines from "Rip
Saw," when the horses took it as
a signal to start tho harvest
and off they went without Reu
ben's guiding hand. The swath
they cut was of usual width, but
irregular as to the lines followed
When the horses slopped they
had just enough of the machine
attached to them to be identified
as Reuben's outfit. . Mr. Stine is
fortunate in having his team
escape with no serious injury,
and fortunate in having a fine
crop that necessitated buying a
new machine. Without casting
any reflections upon tho horses.
we express the opinion that they
are old enough to know better
than lo engage in such frolics.
