OF BROADWATERS ON
THEIR LEAVING HERE
In the account of the Broad
waters wilh this community the
mailer seems to have been set
tled by the family leaving this
city Saturday on Ihe promise not
to return to disturb the peace of
the city. Tin' family left here
immediately after their trouble
here last Saturday, but slopped
at the old Streight farm, north of
this city, instead of the Stull
farm, as was slated in the Jour
nal, and the sheriff brought them
back here lo remain in jail until
they could be disposed of. Broad
water was allowed to work for a
few days to secure enough money
lo get away with, while the wife
was kept in jail until time for
them to shake the dust of the city
from their feet. It was a good
way to rid the city of these people
in letting them go. and it is to be
'hoped they will remain away. -
