over that section of the city and in
each ca-e it has been after nightfall
that the gentleman of color lias

It was a few nights ago that the
man was first noticed lurking around
over the residence part of the city
and since that time several parties
"nave reported to have seen the party
but none of them have had a "close

whether it is a colored man or some
one blacked up i not fully determ
ined. There has been no n?gro resi
dents of the city for several years
and if the person prowling over the
resident portion of the city is a real
negro be sure keeps out of sight
during th" daylight. The men of
the part of the town where the negro
selects hi- route for the evening
walks are on the lookout for him
ind threaten if he is caught around
niiv of the homes that there will be
no further need as to inquiries r.
to his identity. The police tire also
